Skip to comments.Hales: ‘I welcome refugee children to Oregon’
Posted on 07/30/2014 6:41:54 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
PORTLAND Portland Mayor Charlie Hales personally backed Gov. Kitzhabers position on welcoming refugee children to the state Wednesday.
Last week, Oregon took in 50 immigrant kids who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, supporting them as they await legal proceedings.
Kitzhaber said he welcomed the children with open arms. Senator Jeff Merkley also supported the governor's position.
On Wednesday, Hales weighed in.
Immigration is a federal issue. The City of Portland has no official position on this topic, he said. But Im not just a mayor. Im a father. And speaking as a father, I stand with Gov. John Kitzhaber and welcome these refugee children to Oregon.

Do we even have leadership that gives a $hit about what Americans think?
Apparently the regime’s plan is to have these kids so spread across the country nobody will be able to find them to deport.
50? We’ll see who’s smiling when there are 50,000 in his state.
Hales: I welcome refugee children to Oregon. I’m going to take in 10 of those cute little boys with the tattoos and five-o’clock shadows
Let Kitzhaber, Hales and Merkley put these illegals up in their homes if they feel that strongly about it!
noun: refugee; plural noun: refugees
a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.
He welcomes them into YOUR home and YOUR neighborhood to be fed and clothed with YOUR dollars. Such frauds!
It's pretty much like that.
Well as my Dad (RIP) used to say
A Kennedy is someone who wants to give poor people your money and get credit for doing it.
But the inevitable burglary, theft, drug trafficking, and creation of no-go zones in your city may require you to adopt a position.
Pssst by the way - the federal government isn't enforcing the law. So it's your issue whether you want it or not.
No. I’m beginning to think the the comspiracy theorists aren’t so crazy after all about them saying there is a global cabal. :/
Hey Oregon, you might want to look what’s happened to the southwestern states because of illegal immigration, and maybe you won’t be so enthusiastic about having them enter your state.
He will still be smiling. You don't understand these guys if you think they only want a few for window dressing. Their only concern would be if too many arrive at one time.
Why else would they promote this insanity?
I thought they were crazy for years also, not sure anymore.
All this is is one big GIANT 'HISPANIC ARSE KISS' by the Democrat politicians. Thank God I will have exited this world by the time the Hispanics completely conquer the Western United States or perhaps all of it WITH THE WHITE MAN'S HELP.
So these @sses are going to spend their personal after tax money to raise these kids? What does it cost now to raise a kid? I seem to recall the number 250k a while back.
Send ALL the illegals to Oregon,,esp Portland. Why not? They are being welcomed there,,go for it!
Uh Oh. That really messes up Obama’s plan to over run the red states with his newest fans....
Oregon will be getting a call from the WH soon.
Wonder how much compensation all these “refugee” lovers are being paid under the table...
They are not immigrant children. They are illegal aliens.
That’s a liberal in general. They not only want credit. It makes them feel good to give people your money. I have a stepdaughter who used to ask for stuff to give away. She never liked it when she was told she could give away anything she wants as long as she earns it. She still doesn’t earn anything and she’s 38 years old.
I doubt any will be moving in with Kitzhaber or Hales.
If Mark O. Hatfield were still around, he’d be welcoming them too. Oregonians never learn.
You are so right about the “white man’s help”; they are too confused to know what they are doing.
Nay, Oregonians are just transplanted New Englanders; they will never learn.
While HE goes home to his gated community.
“Speaking as a father”, Mayor Hales, don’t you think the kindest thing to do is to return these children to their fathers and mothers rather than house them in an impersonal dormitory being attended to by border agents?!?!?!?
As they say “Keep Portland Weird”.
I take it Hales and Kitzhaber are big time commie lib ‘RATs and big fans of M13 gangbangers.
All three are hardcore Marxists who would love to see the border eliminated.
“Apparently the regimes plan is to have these kids so spread across the country nobody will be able to find them to deport.”..........
BINGO! We have a winner.
