Donald Trump Calls Democrats' Bluff, Wants to Send Illegals to Sanctuary Cities!
Oh this is epic. Since the Democrats don't want to fix our broken immigration system, the Trump Administration is considering sending illegal immigrants to the nation's sanctuary cities. The same cities which claim to welcome illegal immigrants. Behold the gold of Friday:
....The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1555087082.0
Of course, it doesn't make the Democrats or the media happy:
Trump considers releasing immigrants into sanctuary cities as retaliation against Democrats https://t.co/6l1n6oPyIc https://t.co/dI2atPqPPh— The Hill (@The Hill)1555095845.0
"Retaliation." Democrats want illegals here. Trump is simply granting their wish. How is it "retaliation"?
From The Hill:
“We can give them an unlimited supply [of migrants] and let’s see if they’re so happy,” Trump said later Friday at a White House event where he doubled down on the idea. “They say ‘we have open arms.’ They’re always saying they have open arms. Let’s see if they have open arms.”
Pelosi told reporters at the House Democrats' policy retreat in Virginia that she did not know anything about the White House’s internal deliberations, but said even raising the idea is “disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a county, as a people, to address who we are: a nation of immigrants.”
But why? Nancy Pelosi has called illegal immigrant children "gifts of love" and referred to the gang members of MS-13 as "children of God." You'd think Nancy would be thrilled to receive all these children of God, no?
The White House plan reportedly called for transporting migrants detained in immigration facilities to sanctuary cities in Democratic districts that do not assist federal authorities in enforcing immigration laws. Among the areas under consideration was Pelosi's liberal San Francisco district.
Seems fair. Straight up fairness. The liberal cities who vote for liberal politicians who enact pro-illegal immigration policies should receive the same immigrants they virtue signal about all day long. If Nancy Pelosi and her pro-illegal immigration voters in San Francisco want the illegal immigrants entering freely across the Southern border, then let's send those same immigrants to San Francisco. Do it. Do it now.
What Trump has done here is pure brilliance. He's illustrated the Democrats are fine with illegal immigration... just not in their back yard. They're fine with illegal immigrants... turned loose in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. But not their precious blue cities with precious blue city voters who only think they're pro-illegal immigration when it doesn't affect them on such a grand scale.
Point, set, match. Game on, babes.
