BREAKING: Trump declares sending illegals to sanctuary cities is ON THE TABLE!

Last night we reported to you that the White House had suggested sending illegals from the border to sanctuary cities and that the idea had been shot down by DHS.

Well now Trump says that idea isn’t dead yet and they are still considering it:



Wow. I’m a little surprised that Trump owns this idea so heartily, but he apparently has no fear about this whatsoever.

As I suggested last night these cities are a big part of the problem as they create the draw for illegals to come here, knowing that these cities will shelter them from ICE.

And in reality, Trump is right that this should make them very happy. They want illegals to come to their cities, which is why they call themselves ‘sanctuary cities’, and Trump is now agreeing with them. Or he wants to call their bluff and watch them squirm.

Either way, this should be interesting to say the least.

California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) granted protected status to “Spanish speakers”; along with the federal protections for blacks.

Hispanics are the largest ethnic group now in California and demographically surpassed Anglos a few years ago. Yet Hispanics retain “protected” status. This means along with other protected class benefits, special voting districts that are mandated based solely on numbers of these CVRA protected minorities; legal or not. Registered to vote or not.

Please keep voting for Trump and non-RINO GOP in 2020- the swamp needs a lot more draining. Heaven help this state.

Why Democrats love open borders and sanctuary cities, counties and states:

Welcoming illegals increases the state’s population, which in turn grants more congressional representatives.

Sheer numbers count; not registered voters or even citizens – just sheer numbers are all that matters. This is why California has left the back door open and gets so many Congressional reps and electoral college votes.

If you can’t win the war on ideas; win it by sheer numbers present. Welcome to Blue California.

Yeah, maybe we shouldn’t give CA, NY etc even more population power. Maybe we should build more areas to detain them down at the border (or change the rules to remove them sooner) until they can be sent back.

I’m not sure enabling to get sanctuary is a smart move – they’ll never be removed.

Does anyone here know what happens when “catch and release” is enacted? What does that mean, exactly? Do they just set them free to walk up the road to wherever they wander or do they bus them somewhere? If We The People are paying for their transport to someplace, how is it decided where to bus them?

I would like the border wall to be built all along Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, while leaving the Sanctuary State of California without that wall, since their Governor, Gavin Newsom, has declared the state open to all, including people who sneak across our borders. It’s a win – win for all….isn’t it?! Why would Nancy Pelosi be so opposed to this?! IS California a “sanctuary state,” or isn’t it???

The media and radicals are all in a tizzy over this proposal, but I seem to recall Obama actually did it.

During the first big wave of unaccompanied minors, there were buried news reports about how large numbers of other illegals were bused to various areas and released on their own recognizance to make room in holding centers.

Where were they released? Primarily in conservative congressional districts like Jim Bridenstine’s in Oklahoma, both congressional districts in Idaho, and conservative districts in California, among others.

The release location selection bias was blatant. When locals complained, the media ran stories about how bigoted, unwelcoming, and hostile locals were to not want the illegals released in their area.

They should ship them to the AZ/CA border so they can walk into California, the “Sanctuary State” )according to Governor Newsom), of their own free will and accord. OR, why don’t they climb aboard boats and drop anchor in Santa Monica or Santa Barbara or San Francisco, especially as the heat of summer comes around…they would be much more comfy in San Francisco, a sanctuary city that is already overrun by drug addicts camping on their streets….what the heck, why not?

This is the most ignorant idea I have heard so far this year; this is exactly what the Democrats want: illegal aliens packed in to sanctuary cities, Democrat enclaves where they are already sure to win any congressional district contest. This is exactly the same gambit that the antebellum slaves states tried to pull in 1787, a gambit that ended in the Three-fifths Compromise. The slaves states wanted slaves, people who could not vote or be represented, to be counted and apportioned during the decennial Census, giving them more seats in the House of Representatives, more Electoral College members, and today a bigger proportion of federal grant funds. In short, the more illegals packed into sanctuary cities of blue states, the more House seats and electoral college votes to Democrats, making it easier for them to acquire power. According to the MIT-Yale study, there are approximately 22 million illegal aliens… Read more »

Challenge the constitutionality of counting foreign nationals for the purpose of apportioning congressional districts, Electoral College members, and federal grant funds. Through rules of logic I believe that it is possible to demonstrate that our constitution never condoned the counting of foreign nationals based on Article 1 Section 2 Clause 3, the phrase, “Indians not taxed.” At the time Indians on reservations were considered under the jurisdiction of a foreign nation. Therefore, they were not counted on the census. However, in 1850, Native Americans… Read more »

This idea was already suggested in Nov.

He’s also projecting, to his base, this is what Dems want, when our side controlled everything for 2 years, yet accomplished nothing…not even the requested funding.

I believe there was $22M set aside for humanitarian aid at the border, how about setting up 5-6 base camps by the border & hold them there, contained & not roaming free in America.

If all of the “catch and release” illegals were shipped to CA, which proudly proclaimed that it would not adhere to our nation’s laws and declared itself to be “the sanctuary state,” at least these people here illegally under federal laws would stay in one place, understanding that if they are found in any other state outside of California until the federal government has been able to complete processing them for “asylum,” they would be immediately deported. It is a good idea until the democrats grow up, stop their RESIST movement and work with the GOP to close loopholes, end the idea that people are allowed to enter over U.S. borders for asylum…these people who refuse to accept asylum in Mexico are not interested in asylum in the U.S. You must know that the demonrats and progressive anarchists, like satan soros, are overwhelming our government, not only to destroy Trump’s… Read more »

I actually think Trump can restrict letting anyone come in from these 4 countries, for 6-8 months, with an EO using the National Security angle. He’s done it before & im not sure why he won’t do it again.

Funding (my mistake on the $22M). This is what Trump promised Feb 15. It’s published on the gov website…..

$415M will go toward addressing the humanitarian crisis at the border by providing medical care, transportation, processing centers, and consumables.

Last time he tried to suspend immigration/asylum from specific countries, the courts stopped him for being racist, sexist, islamaphobic and every other “ist.”

The president is within the law to suspend ALL immigration and asylum for a period of time, and to extend that period of time, as necessary for the House and Senate to fix our immigration laws. They will not. HE has not! I sometimes question just how committed to fixing the problem Trump is…or is it just getting close to re-election? I trust no one anymore….only God.

Actually, your suggestion to set up immigration judges on the border is a good one…I would prefer that they all be prior military Judge AGs, who would push through everything quickly and efficiently, rejecting most (if not all), despite the liberal progressive “lawyers” who claim to represent the fauxsylum seekers. Military Judge AGs would slice and dice those illegals-chasers who barely made it through law school (IF they made it through law school – their credentials must be checked). We have to get tough. How wonderful it would be if we deported George Soros and his family…they would self-deport if all the investigations being conducted in the wake of the Russia Collusion scam that should indict the clintons, obamas and, with luck, satan-soros (and maybe steyer too).

First of all, under catch and release, they have to go somewhere.

California is a sanctuary state that is a democrat run state, as well, so they can have more democrat voters. The reason they hate that idea is because they want them in red states. Well, that needs to change. I say bus them all to California where these poor asylum seekers can find sanctuary.

Besides, the demonrats are demanding that the electoral college be eliminated, which frankly, means no state needs congressmen and senators in WADC at all.

There is not one thing wrong with this idea of busing “asylum seekers” to sanctuary cities, and it is a winning issue for all. In fact, since California has declared itself a sanctuary state, they should ALL go there! Cali is a border state, so that just makes sense. The legislature has put CBP, ICE and every other agency tasked with protecting our borders into a situation that they must release those they could not process, or release those for whom there is no room, so busing these asylum seekers to California (a sanctuary STATE) just makes sense AND California can ultimately process them any way they wish.

Why is the news reporting that this is illegal? Why was it okay for Obama to ship these illegals all over the country, including to Alaska and Hawaii? (Those are rhetorical questions.)

Some laws matter. Some laws don’t. It depends on which law it is and which state is affected as to which laws matter or not.

It is illegal for illegals to enter this country but it’s not illegal for sanctuary cities/states to have them deposited into their areas. The rule of law is irrelevant. We are living in anarchy.

California has made it easy to take in illegals:

Everything is now bi-lingual; they can vote in local elections, commit multiple crimes and escape most if not all consequences, take $23 billion dollars a year of taxpayer funded benefits and services and even get free legal support if anyone complains.

Plus trade their free EBT cards for cash in any 7-11 parking lot now found on almost every street corner in the state. Breed out one anchor baby after breaching the border and get all the relatives at home a free pass to also come to the US.
