Kansas City Immigration Activists Continue Fight Against Child Detention Center
The issue of a proposed child dentition center center near Troost targeting illegal immigrants is mostly settled but there's still a few public meetings that offer an opportunity for a low key switcheroo regarding the facility.
Accordingly, activists continue their online campaign against the effort.
So far they've gathered 7,313 signatures for their petition and encourage others to sign.
Take a look:
No Child Detention in KC!
To: KCMO City Planning Commission (firstname.lastname@example.org)
From: [Your Name]
Recently, a company that calls itself VisionQuest has attempted to buy and rent property in Kansas City, Missouri for the purpose of running a for-profit detention center for migrant children.
We, the undersigned, demand no child detention administered by this company or any other in Kansas City.
We call on the City Planning Commission to reject any plans involving the detention migrant youth. Our city and region must continue striving against the demonization of immigrants and resist participating in the separation of families. Any potential detention center would be a stain on the moral fabric of our community.
We stand united and declare immigrants are welcome and families belong together.
