Thanks to the policy of the new administration, locals will soon confront many opportunities to make new friends.
To wit and because TKC is a "pocho" Latino who is somewhat proficient in the language of the oppressor . . .
KANSAS CITY PREPS FOR AN EPIC WAVE OF IMMIGRANTS HOPING TO BENEFIT FROM THE UPCOMING BIDEN AMNESTY!!!
For perspective, let's not forget that former Prez Ronald Reagan was the first modern-era icon to grant an immigration amnesty and longtime residents still remember the local impact.
Here's the word from a friend of the blog . . .
"In Kansas City, the Reagan amnesty quadrupled the number of Latinos in Kansas City in less than 10 years. There's still an effect from the legislation and that's why the Latino community has been the largest growing ethnic minority in the metro for at least 30 years. Leading up to Reagan's plan, KC was packed with migrant workers, tourists and family friends who hoped to qualify. From the Westside to Northeast there were literally people sleeping on the street just because they wanted the amnesty so desperately. In fact, there was a great deal of intercultural conflict between community leaders and the new arrivals; part of that history is what ultimately led to the Westside CAN Center and police working with 'illegals' instead of reporting them to immigration authorities."
And that leads us to a very quick change in language that's also on the horizon . . .
For what it's worth, this was always a sticking point with activist, Prez Trump supporter and toy gun enthusiast Kris Kobach . . .
Despite vehement objections, Mr. Kobach was legally correct when he referenced "illegal aliens" and balked at terms like "dreamers" given that he was citing U.S. law . . . But laws change.
Now the term "alien" isn't just out of favor but soon might not be part of the American vernacular from a legal standpoint.
But I digress . . . Back to the topic of new friends & guests . . .
Right now social service agencies and local leaders active in Kansas City's Latino community are prepping their requests for both non-profit and government funding given the influx in population that they will likely meet in the very near future.
On a more ominous note . . .
Kansas City is no stranger to South of the border guests given that some of the most brutal Mexican drug lords have regularly visited this cowtown and law enforcement recently confirmed that drug cartels have set up shop throughout the metro.
Nevertheless . . .
With a Democratic Party controlled White House, Senate and Congress it's unlikely that the Biden Amnesty plan will meet with anything but ritual ranting given that we're a long way from midterm elections and this is just the FIRST part of an agenda that will shape the future of the nation and Kansas City.
