HOUSTON MAYOR ANNISE PARKER OFFERING NO LEADERSHIP ON HUMAN RIGHTS REFUGEE BORDER CHILDREN CRISIS-- YET AT THE SAME TIME PARKER ASKS FOR PROGRESSIVE ENERGY TO BE SPENT ON BALLOT CHALLENGE TO Houston HUMAN RIGHTS ORDINANCE
It would be consistent with what should be the spirit of the currently contested anti-discrimination law in Houston for Mayor Annise Parker & human rights leaders in Houston to call for Houston to shelter & assist the unaccompanied refugee children at the border.
Political leaders and others in Dallas County, Texas reached out to help these children.
Mayor Kassim Read of Atlanta has offered help to these children.
Mayor Rham Emanuel of Chicago has offered to help these children.
Leadership by Mayor Parker on this issue would also be consistent with Houston's place as a city of immigrants.
Liberals and progressives in Houston will be soon asked to expend effort to defend the Equal Rights Ordinance at the ballot box in an election year where many important races are on the ballot.
Where is the leadership and concern from the most vocal advocates of this new law--such as Mayor Parker--that would give true substance to the declared intent of the human rights ordinance?
