Rep. Cheryl Helmer taking heat for comment made about Wichita being a sanctuary city at Moran town hall meeting

first_imgSumner Newscow report — State Rep. Cheryl Helmer, who represents part of Sumner County, appears to be taking some heat after a report came out in the Wichita Eagle that she falsely labeled Wichita as a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants while addressing U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran at a town hall event in Mulvane Wednesday (see article here).Cheryl HelmerHelmer, which represents the northeast section of Sumner County including the towns of Mulvane, Belle Plaine and Oxford state:“Wichita’s been named a sanctuary city and we’re feeling some real insecurity,” said Helmer, R-Mulvane. “I’ve been robbed two times — I’m out by the (Kansas Star) casino — and it’s because of that sanctuary city law.”“A sanctuary city really gives you not much that they can do in arresting anybody when something’s happening,” said Helmer, a first-term legislator. Helmer defeated incumbent Ed Trimmer in the November 2018 general election.City spokeswoman Elyse Mohler confirmed to the Wichita Eagle with the Wichita Police Department that the city is not a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants.And Mayor Jeff Longwell also told the Eagle the city regularly cooperates with federal agencies on immigration enforcement.“We will respond when we need to and work with whatever (immigration) agents we need to,” Longwell said.He said Helmer’s assertions show she doesn’t have her facts straight.“I don’t know where people get that from,” Longwell said. “The fact that we work with our Hispanic community does not make us a sanctuary city.”Last year, the Center for Immigration Studies included and then removed Sedgwick County from a list of so-called sanctuary counties, after Sheriff Jeff Easter publicly complained it was inaccurate.Sanctuary cities and counties are generally considered to be jurisdictions that have made a definitive statement that they won’t cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.The Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for strict limits on immigration, based its list on policies its leaders interpreted as limiting cooperation with federal efforts.After Wednesday’s town hall, Helmer walked back her statement that the robberies were connected to a lack of immigration enforcement.“Oh no, no, no. I have no idea who robbed me or I’d be looking for them,” Helmer told the Eagle. “I just know I have been robbed twice.”Helmer could provide no evidence that Wichita is classified as a sanctuary city, but maintained the claim and said her constituents showed her a map.“If you get a map of Kansas sanctuary cities, Wichita is a sanctuary city,” Helmer said.Helmer agreed to email a copy of the map to The Eagle, but then did not respond to an email or phone call Wednesday afternoon.Helmer said after the meeting that law enforcement officers feel “their hands are tied” when it comes to immigration enforcement.“They’re really having a tough time with security and everything,” Helmer said.She said her constituents worry about an influx of illegal immigrants.“A lot of people are feeling that since all of this has happened, you know, that there are a lot of people coming up here, you know?” Helmer said.She then said she could take no more questions.“I have my dog out in the car,” Helmer said.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.

(and get the dog out of the hot car) Report Reply -3 Vote up Vote down Dave · 57 weeks ago Wichita is not a sanctuary city but it has been stated by a few Wichita people that they have seen buses with windows that are darkened so people can’t see in, unloading mostly hispanics at a local Walmart on south Broadway. Might be people that have found people that will sponsor them while getting their green cards. Might be ICE, Homeland Security buses or might be nothing.

She doesn’t say whether she was robbed at her house or while at the casino. Overtaxed did not read your article and Longwell’s statement that Wichita had in error been on a list of sanctuary cities.

Travel’s become a prime inspiration for home decor

first_img This undated photo provided by Melissa Smuzynski shows a capital A decoupaged in a US map on the wall in a travel-themed nursery. (Melissa Smuzynski/parenthoodandpassports.com via AP) When Melissa Smuzynski learned that she was expecting, she wanted a nursery that reflected her family’s love of travel. But when she and her husband, Damon Lane, went shopping for appropriate decor a few years ago, they didn’t find much.So they improvised, using luggage tags and airmail envelopes to create wall hangings. They found a fun suitcase to display in the room, and decoupaged a table with maps and travel-oriented scrapbook paper. The look came together pretty easily and inexpensively, said Smuzynski, who gave birth to daughter Avery in February 2015. This undated photo provided by Wayfair shows a room decorated with Global wallpaper available from Wayfair.

(Melissa Smuzynski/parenthoodandpassports.com via AP)center_img “It was more budget-friendly than if we had gone with a pre-assembled theme. This reflected who we are,” said Smuzynski, who wrote a blogpost about the effort on her website, parenthoodandpassports.com. “Travel has always been a significant part of our lives.”In just a few years, the trend seems to have taken off. “When I go into Hobby Lobby, there’s an entire section that looks exactly like her room,” said Smuzynski, of Oklahoma City.Many interior decorators, home goods manufacturers and trend spotters have embraced the travel theme. Some people decorate with pieces they bought on vacation or that remind them of past trips. Others simply go to the store for furniture, lighting and other elements that evoke the look and feel of places they’ve visited.It’s all part of a trend toward making decor personal and customized, said Donna Garlough, style director for Wayfair, an online home goods store.“These days, people crave homes that speak to them and their interests rather than one that was decorated in one fell swoop. And travel is one of those things that can really shape you, so it’s no wonder people want to reflect their favorite memories and destinations in their home’s décor,” said Garlough, whose book, “Your Home, Your Style” (Rizzoli USA), will be published this spring.Laura Casey of Laura Casey Interiors in Charlotte, North Carolina, designed a dining room inspired by a zebra photograph that clients had purchased during a trip to Africa. She incorporated complementary colors, textures and patterns, using Moroccan-inspired tiles to help the room feel travel-inspired and eclectic.Wall hangings are an easy way to add travel elements to a room, Casey said. Consider framing one of your photos or buying a print or art piece while traveling, she said.“One of my clients has family photographs from many countries they have visited. In their kitchen and den we made small gallery groupings to represent each trip,” she said. “It keeps the room casual and family-friendly, while also allowing the family to be reminded of their adventures.”Souvenirs are an obvious way to reference your travel, said Danielle Whitburn, a freelance writer for Home-Designing.com. But there are other options, as well.“I love pieces that make a subtle nod to another place or memory — a bicycle bookend that reminds you of riding by the shore, for example, or a pillow that reminds you of the color of a certain lake or sea,” said Whitburn, who lives in Auckland, New Zealand.Garlough agrees. “Rather than collecting souvenir spoons and refrigerator magnets like their parents and grandparents, today’s shoppers are incorporating their travel memories in bigger ways, such as an abstract landscape that reminds them of a hiking trip, or whimsical pillows with a beach motif,” she said. “It’s a subtle, constant reminder that they can appreciate every day.”Of course, it’s also possible to achieve this look without ever leaving home. Moroccan leather ottomans, Persian rugs and Mexican artwork are distinctive elements that evoke a sense of place and can be bought online or at a store, Whitburn said.As for souvenirs, today’s travelers often have a more global approach than in the past.“As travelling increases (in) popularity, we are seeing more pieces outside the traditional tourist haunts in Europe and North America,” she says.
