  • Bob Ray (the Republican I actually admired) welcomed 1,500 Tai Dam refugees despite rumbles of protest in the state.  That was back when I was proud to be an Iowan.

    The Iowa Bureau of Refugee Services is the only entity run by a state government that is certified as a resettlement agency by the U.S. State Department, which in my mind's eye is a great legacy.

    This woman is an embarrassment.
  • Covid Kim is a crappy governor.

    But, subby, you forgot to mention that Cindy Axne (D-Ia) is also in a tizzy over this.
    Maybe different reasons? But still
  • From Another Source : "Two of the 19 children were unified with sponsors at the Des Moines International Airport, the source confirmed. The other children were bused to "locations in or near" Kansas City, Missouri, Janesville, Wisconsin, Chicago, Illinois, Fort Wayne, Indiana and Detroit, Michigan"

    Also, #KovidKim never fails to insert her little QAnon dog whistle that the flights might have been "human trafficking."

    She's pretty much the only D in the HoR from Iowa. She knows this is not a winning issue to back here.

    It's the damn evangelicals in my part of the state.
    I blame them
  • There's plenty of illegal immigrants in that state but folks just pretend there aren't.  They play up the drama on this stuff as cover.
  • Oh FFS

    FTA: Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds' office said Thursday that 19 refugee children were flown to Des Moines and transported to sponsor families last month, despite her previous rejection of a federal request that immigrant children be housed in Iowa.

    They aren't even free-range, unsupervised, welfare-siphoning, anchor-baby-popping, refugees. Nothing even remotely controversial, not even in the wildest ofetid schizo-demented rants of a Tucker Jones.

    They are families who live with sponsor families.
  • Who the fark works their farms and meat packing plants? Christ imagine coming from a beautiful lush place in Central America and ending up in Iowa. Iowa exists to make Wisconsin feel better itself. Iowa is a less exciting Nebraska. Oldbraska.
  • They are antifa!!!!!

    In 2019, under Republican President Donald Trump, Reynolds consented to accepting refugees from the federal government.

    Oh. Never mind.

    "This is not our problem. This is the president's (Biden's) problem," Reynolds said April 8 on WHO-AM radio in Des Moines. "He's the one that has opened the border and he needs to be responsible for this and he needs to stop it."

    I see. What was that weasel word you'uns use. Unk... unk... unknown. No, that's not it. Oh yeah, unity. You'uns want unity, right? That something you crow about from every rooftop 24/7.

    /they don't want it
    //they want the opposite
    ///but we all know that
  • A federal agency first denying and then admitting that they managed the flight in question is problematic and does warrant an investigation, but for some reason I do not believe that is Governor Reynolds's real problem with the situation.
  • schubie: imagine coming from a beautiful lush place in Central America and ending up in Iowa.


    Imagine the contempt an Incan potato farmer from their beautiful, irrigated, bounteous, thousand-year-old  terraced Andean farms, staring at the literal shiatpiles Iowa passes off for potato farming.

    A pig shiat lagoon who has an even bigger shiatload of power over our presidential elections
  • Right off the bat I'm going to claim ignorance on how this whole thing works because it makes no sense, RE: alienating children from their parents by keeping the kids and sending the adults back across the border.

    It's farking madness.  If ANY other country tried pulling that same shiat with American citizens then it would be farking war within a day.

    I must be missing something.
  • Wow, that's almost a Duggar family-load

    Nebraska is a Dittohead Deutschland. It's so farking red that even it's "democrats" are goose-stepping shiatheels.

    And as awful as Reynolds is, Nebraska's Governor Lex Luthor is a hundred times more vile (NE is a GLEEFULLY death penalty state. Iowa doesn't have DP).
  • You don't want to help 19 kids? Less than a classroom of browns, blacks, or unidentifiable Asians? As a teacher, Ol' Kim there can go shiat in her hat. What an asshole.
  • Fighting back with malware may be the only answer that yields results.
  • It does seem like a failure of communication happened somewhere between the federal and state governments in this situation, regardless of any political views.
  • Yes. Die on every hill so that you may shill.

  • AAAAGGGGHHHH: Iowa doesn't have DP


    We clearly go to different websites...
  • sinko swimo: read TFA. she's right.


    No she is not. The federal government has allowed them to remain in the US as refugees and just like anyone else in the country, they have the right to travel freely within its borders.

    It's called acting with impunity. It's what evil empires do just before they collapse.

    How many thousands of Bosnian refugees settled in the state?

    Out of many, one Kimmy.
