It’s odd, that difference between the golden towers nd the trenches. It seems to give one a perspective gained in no other way than to make the journey:
As a U.S. senator, Sam Brownback was second to none in advocating for those suffering because of war, persecution and oppression, often by citing the biblical admonition “that true religion is taking care of widows and orphans and the foreigner amongst you.”
That makes him the last governor you’d expect to fearmonger about refugees, as he did again last week by pulling Kansas out of the federal government’s refugee resettlement program.
Citing his concerns for Kansans’ safety, the governor said the feds’ failure “to provide adequate assurances regarding refugees it is settling in Kansas” left him no choice.
The good governor has been fighting the influx of Mexican workers and voting and crime for some few years now. He is finding that the problems are growing as workers inflow to the packing houses and spill outward to the, umm, more civilized areas of the state.
And, to say the obvious, apply for government assistance and the government is severely strapped to fund the wages of the elected, let along the free loaders.
