Oh, it’s legal. Expert answers MSM dream that Trump powerless to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities

Brandon Judd is the National Border Patrol Council President, and this morning he talked Pete Hegseth on MSNBC about the hot Sanctuary City topic that is gripping the nation. In short, it’s basically Trump telling the sanctuary city advocates to put up or shut up.

Democrats, and especially the media arm of the Democrats, are stomping their feet about it being illegal. For some reason they think releasing illegal immigrants to their cities is illegal. Which would mean that the immigrants ARE illegal, right? Are they just accidentally admitting that now?

Andyway, Judd says not so fast. ““It’s absolutely legal,” he said. “But I’m going to get beaten up by the hard left for this comment. But this is actually a brilliant move on the president’s part.”



Got that right.

“If he’s doing it for humanitarian purposes, he should be praised,” he said.

“If he’s doing it for political reasons, this is brilliant,” he also said. “These people have to be released for one reason or another. And if we’re going to have to release them, why not show the sanctuary cities the same pressure that other cities are feeling.”

Yep. Why not?

I live in Maine….not far from the City of Lewiston….they have a yuuuge neighborhood of Somalis.
That is NOT from a natural occurrence….the government (I expect) sent them there.
If true….the government can send them anywhere (but home.)
My suggestion. Send them by the tens of thousands NOT to “sanctuary” areas, but to places like…Martha’s Vineyard….the Hamptons…Key West….Greenwich, Connecticut…Chappaqua, N.Y…..
You’ll hear the Dems squeal like stuck pigs….and demand a wall!

Why would ANY American find it admirable to distribute illegals ANYWHERE in our country. WE STILL FOOT THE BILL.

It changes federal funding – they are counted in the census.
– they will get drivers licenses
– take American jobs,
– demand special treatment
– change the language taught in your kids school & on & on.

Be careful what you wish for. If your “lucky” your city will be listed.

What ever happened to the sane people cheering for 5-6 “contained” detention centers ALONG the border with Immigration judges/lawyers, interpreters/Drs, etc brought to THEIR location. It’s been done before.

Because if they’re coming here anyway, why not let the ones who have no problem with that take care of them? Problem solved! grin

So our side is stupid enough to think illegals are going to stay where they are dropped off, when they’ve already broken our laws. Yeah, ok.

I guess if people cared more about their kids & grandkids futures, instead of sticking it to Pelosi or whoever, they wouldn’t be cheering this stupidity on.

Problem not solved at all.

Is there a map break down on where in last year all were released?

Do they just let them walk out of the holding centers and they go where ever they can find help? They have to go some where. I know certain so called churches help them, but the gov pays them pretty well. Kinda like a scam, just my 2 cents.

WALLACE: OK. I want to pick up on this specific option though about shipping migrants to sanctuary cities. The president tweeted last night that he has, the government has, quote, the absolute legal right to do so, but as has been reported, this was floated by the White House, brought over to DHS and they said repeatedly that it was not legal to do so. And also, they said counterproductive. Take a look at some of the objections that DHS raised. They said: Congress has approved no specific money for this purpose. ICE says it would be an unnecessary operational burden. Sending them to century cities which don’t cooperate with federal enforcement of immigration laws would make it harder to round them up later. And then, also, it might be an incentive to more illegal immigration. I guess the question is, how do you overcome all of those problems? Chris… Read more »

You’re missing the point. Send the illegals in MASSIVE numbers to the places that welcome them until they break. Watch them squeal for the walls after they cannot walk outside without stepping on turds.

Drop 10 busloads in front of Nancy’s house and the Cal. Gov. Moron and watch the tune change.

The demonrats set the policy that all illegals held 20 days and not yet processed must be released into the nation, so it makes sense that, if CBP is required to release them, they should go someplace where they are welcomed with open arms, presumably because these “sanctuary cities and sanctuary states” have endless funds to properly care for them. DONE DEAL! I think Trump should negotiate a deal with Grayhound bus lines, which drive straight through from Texas to California daily. I-10 to I-8 past Yuma is a great place to deliver them for a better life and asylum in California. Now, the only thing left, is that if CA is going to permit illegal immigrants to vote, then CA will no longer be permitted to participate in any federal election, which includes Pelosi, Schiff and everyone else representing California in WADC…. BUT since every demonrat candidate vows to… Read more »

tryandgetbymetryandgetbyme I’d have to say that the California democrats are completely to blame for California’s demise. They flooded CA with illegals, who are apparently voting. They change election laws/rules constantly and “count every vote” until they get the result they want. This last election it took weeks to “count every vote”. Unions of all stripes own the CA political puppets. It’s so corrupt in CA.

They froze the GOP out. Why should the Republican Party bother to waste money with California any more? CA democrats will simply keep moving the goal posts, if their political power is threatened. And their intentions are to carry CA state policies to DC and implement nationally.

BTW, I have openly commented many times here how much disgust I feel with the GOP so my comment isn’t in support of the GOP. I’m stating the political facts that exist in CA.

True enough. And isn’t it a shame that by conceding CA the GOP starts Presidential elections down 55-0. I guess its not worth fighting for? Not to mention all of the political realities we’ve already mentioned.

Have you heard of Mike Alexander and California Taxpayers Union? He hosts a radio show, Radio Free LA, in the “belly of the beast” with ideas to force the California Democrats and their cronies to spend money from the war chest defending their turf (which could easily have greater implications). His program usually targets certain local and state races, utility tax theft, public pensions, or ballot initiatives and repeals, but currently putting their momentum behind school choice. The big problem for them is they need a larger audience, a bigger following. Check it out, especially if you’re in CA: https://www.californiataxpayersunion.org/

tryandgetbymetryandgetbyme I’m not a Californian. I’m a Texan. They’re coming for us, too. So Texas (me and mine) have our own war to battle here. We still have a fighting chance.

Is it a shame CA is lost? Indeed. But IMO nothing short of a successful revolution for our side will solve the problem, at this point. We know that’s not going to happen.

The GOP are literally yellow bellied liar cowards. They lie to get our votes, then they do as their donors require once in office.

I wish CA luck in trying to gain their liberties back.

tryandgetbymetryandgetbyme Yep. Always. And I’m one. I live right next to Santa Ana, CA, a bilingual city where illegals have found “sanctuary” for many years now.

But these sanctimonious leftists who proclaim that illegals should be given sanctuary and welcomed with not only open arms, but drivers licenses, in-state college tuition, and a path to citizenship (read: voting rights) don’t really want them in their tony and exclusive neighborhoods.

Much better to drop them off, uninvited, to working class cities and towns to further depress the wages and work prospects of American citizens, right Lefties?

I want to encourage President Trump to follow through with this. As I said two days ago here on the thread where this news broke originally and before the American PRAVDA began analyzing this, if it’s legal for Obama to transport (by land, air or sea) to Alaska, Hawaii and every other state without notifying local officials, then it’s legal for Trump to do the same exact thing.

I also commented about how Trump is so good at exposing the Left’s propaganda and lies. It’s not just hypocrisy, on their part. It’s a blatant attempt to force every state to succumb to their whims, in the name of California policies.

To hell with the Left. America really needs to wake up or they’re going to get gutted one day soon. Get it going, President Trump and move quickly.

IF (and I don’t think they should) illegal aliens have to be released into America, then let the lawless sanctuary cities have them since they encourage them to come here.

I can not see a downside to this. These homeless, penniless, some great, some not so great people are going to be a drain on someone no matter where they go. Why should border states have to take on that burden? There are places that voted to have illegal immigrants…. they should take on the burden, because much of this whole problem is because of their encouragement to come here.

Well, there is a downside. Those of us who voted adamantly with our one individual vote against this one-party rule, these arrogant ruling politicians, and this sanctuary city/sanctuary state crap but still reside in these cities and states. In theory it’s great, but practically speaking we would pay the price.

That’s right. And the only way to alleviate that is to secure the border, which is the rub. This novel idea wouldn’t secure the border, it is only to expose hypocrisy.

I live in Wa state… I get that. But, unless they can be deported right now, they will be let go in 20 days… and the vicious circle will continue because liberals never have to suffer the consequence of their actions. Take them to Brooklyn let AOC explain to her constituents why the money is used up and they can’t begin to educate children or help the homeless, like the border states have had to deal with since Obama started busing them into conservative communities.

You can tell by their panic at the thought of thousands more jobless, homeless, strangers on their city streets that they may understand for the first time that this isn’t about race, it’s about sovereignty and the rule of law.

All these illegals have to go some place. Border towns and near border towns can take just so many, the rest will sleep on the street, but we cannot have that. So the answer is to spread out the illegals and who better to provide for them than those cities who claim to love illegals most.
