On Friday, President Trump confirmed reports that he was thinking about releasing detained immigrants into “sanctuary cities only.” A move like this would be welcomed from those on the right and challenged by those on the left.
By just suggesting it, he puts the libs on notice. They either have to embrace it, which they won’t, or they will oppose it, which they will and that only enforces Trump’s position. What a genius move.
Trump tweeted: “Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only … The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”

Pure awesomeness. This is why I voted for Trump and why I support him. Make the Democrats live by the rules they impose on others.
Hey Nancy, we are not a nation of ILLEGAL immigrants. And I think second and third and fourth generations can’t claim immigrant status anyway.
The Washington Post reported:
White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of “sanctuary cities” to retaliate against President Trump’s political adversaries, according to Department of Homeland Security officials and email messages reviewed by The Washington Post.
Trump administration officials have proposed transporting detained immigrants to sanctuary cities at least twice in the past six months — once in November, as a migrant caravan approached the U.S. southern border, and again in February, amid a standoff with Democrats over funding for Trump’s border wall.
But this is a great plan if implemented. Hard crackdown on illegals with a wide open offer to escape that persecution. Carrot and stick. Don’t expect Dems to put their money where their big mouths are or to compromise of course. But, as Barack Obama would have it: we won, you lost, so deal with it. Elections have consequences, aren’t those your rules, Nancy?
Democrat-led sanctuary cities want to harbor illegal immigrants, right? Fine. Let them have them. I would like to see some activist group in the San Francisco area start pitching tents outside -and inside- the walls of Nancy Pelosi’s estate and let illegals live there.
I would also love to see one of the activists knock on Pelosi’s door every five minutes and ask for a snack for the illegals or could she let the illegals use the bathroom or set up port-a-potties near the tents on the estate.
