Ken Buck Only Member of Colo. Delegation to Back Travel Ban

Rep. Ken Buck presses whatever button President Trump prefers.

Congressman Ken Buck (R-Greeley) has generally refused to answer reporter questions about his position on Donald Trump’s travel ban for immigrants, leaving local news outlets such as Denver7 and the Denver Post to guess about his position on one of the more pressing issues in the country. But Ernest Luning of the Colorado Statesman will not be denied; as Luning reports, Rep. Buck on Monday offered his unqualified support for the Muslim travel ban:

“Our country has always offered hope for the oppressed and homeless, but hope also requires safety and security,” Buck said. We should not let people into this country unless we can thoroughly vet them. America welcomes Muslims from 190 countries and temporarily bans all individuals from 7 countries. The President’s executive order is a temporary effort that addresses a serious issue with terrorist hot spots.”

Congressman Buck is the only member of Colorado’s Congressional delegation to offer his full support for Trump’s travel ban. Even Colorado Springs Rep. Doug Lamborn made it clear that he opposes Trump’s Executive Order creating the travel ban.

    Ken Buck should pay attention to his mentor, Dick Cheney. Buck started out as a lowly intern helping Cheney cover up Iran-Contra.

    But Cheney now says that

    the plan, which Trump announced Monday, "goes against everything we stand for and believe in."

    "I mean, religious freedom has been a very important part of our history and where we came from," he added.

    Cheney said that there is a "serious problem" when it comes to refugees from Syria and other countries in ensuring they don't "represent ISIS.

    "You’ve got to set up a vetting process — and that’s crucial," he said.

    Buck, as a former Weld County DA, knows all about vetting. He understands completely what processes refugees go through. Hell, he helped set Greeley up as a refugee center to replenish the meatpacking labor force he gutted with his unconstitutional raids on immigrants!

    Buck actually helped welcome Somali, Burmese, and other immigrants by introducing policies to make them feel safer about reporting crimes. Buyer's remorse now? Somalia is one of Trump's seven "suspicious" countries.

    This history is well known in Greeley.

    Consistency and ethics have never mattered that much to Ken Buck.
