Trump: Because the Democrats Refuse to Act in the Face of a Border Crisis, I'm Thinking About Sticking All Illegals Into Sanctuary Cities

I don't know what he means. Perhaps he means the detention facilities for asylum seekers will be placed there?

Whatever he meant -- I at least agree with the spirit of it.


RedState quotes the open borders advocate Washington Post hypocritically whining about the proposal:

White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of "sanctuary cities" to retaliate against President Trumpís 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 Trumpís border wall.

Ah, okay, I guess he means that when he's forced to catch-and-release detainees, he'll ship them to sanctuary cities. Nothing will actually keep them there, but... people tend to stay in place, absent a compelling reason to move. And given that these are sanctuary cities, they'd have a good incentive to stay.

Question: If illegal aliens boost the economy, do not drain the welfare system, and commit crime at a lower rate than American citizens (whether natural-born or naturalized), shouldn't the sanctuary cities be excited to welcome their new prosperity-driving residents?
