Interview to Be Streamed on Facebook Live on McCormick for Congress Facebook Page
Denver – On Wednesday afternoon, Karen McCormick, DVM, who is running against Ken Buck in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, will interview Buck constituent Shauna Johnson, who faces jail time for protesting Buck’s support of the Trump Administration policy separating children at the border.
“Shauna is a very brave woman, and I want to talk to her about why this is so wrong,” said McCormick. “I am the mother of three, and the idea of seeking a better life for my children only to have them taken away from me is unconscionable. Ken Buck has some explaining to do about why he supports punishing children and families trying to come to this country.”
According to a report on Denver’s KMGH/Channel 7, “Shauna Johnson faces a misdemeanor charge after a chalk art display in front of Republican Congressman Ken Buck’s office in Castle Rock regarding the Trump administration’s policy of separating immigrant children from their families at the border.
“I wrote in chalk, ‘Stop putting kids in cages Ken Buck, love Jesus and a cross,'” said Johnson.
The building’s management called the Douglas County Sheriff’s office after the incident. Deputies issued the misdemeanor because the office was located on private property. A spokesperson also expressed concern the woman would return and cause further disruption.”
