Another Missouri Republican Calls Out Kansas City Mayor Q

Over the past few weeks, Mayor Q has turned KCMO into a punching bag for Missouri Republicans looking to score quick & easy points amid campaign season 2024. 

Here's the latest power move that leverages sketchy and largely unpopular comments from the city hall honcho that he has continually had to walk back . . . 

Sen. Denny Hoskins, R-Warrensburg, is the latest Republican speaking out.

“We just saw Mayor Quinton Lucas from Kansas City,” he said. “He’s been saying that he’s been talking to the mayors in Denver as well as New York City to bring those illegal immigrants here to help with the workforce. We don’t want illegal aliens here in the state.”

Hoskins, a member of the right-leaning Freedom Caucus, has filed legislation that proposes tough restrictions for immigrants who have illegally entered the U.S. and reside in Missouri.

“What Senate Bill 1520 would do, it would make it a state crime in order to be an illegal alien here in the state,” Hoskins said. “Put a $10,000 fine and then deport any illegal alien that’s not supposed to be here back to wherever they came from. I think this is very important.”

Despite filing the bill earlier this year, Hoskins is calling on his colleagues to advance his bill due to Lucas’s invitation to migrants to move there and find work.
