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...
