Trump battles two-faced Sanctuary City mayor and, like all hypocrites, she’s got NOTHING

On Saturday night Trump faced down hypocritical proponents of so-called “sanctuary cities” who suddenly think the idea of illegal immigrants moving in is a bad one. In particular he called out Oakland Mayor and darling of the liberal virtue signal set Libby Schaaf, who on Friday promoted her appearance on a local TV station on the topic by saying “It’s not the first time @realDonaldTrump has tried something illegal, immoral, undemocratic, and racist.”

So … allowing migrants to come to your city where they are safe is RACIST now? That literally doesn’t make sense. And Trump lit her up.

Schaaf tried to fire back.



That is a liberal progressive reply if there ever was one. It’s cruel and racist to punish our city with an influx of illegals. Also we love illegals and welcome them all! Also don’t send them you hater! Also we can’t wait to get them!!

Liberal privilege is no one, not one person in the media, will ever dare to call her out on it. But that’s fine. You know why?

But Trump got the final word.

Guess what? You’re not in charge, Libby. Tough luck you have to live with your own grandstanding policy position. Enjoy the depressed wages and strain on city services!

Y’all remember when this was just a notion that never made it out of notion phase? And then WaPo and CNN tried to make hay? And now it’s probably turning into policy? You have to admit that’s hilarious.

Relax, it’s not gonna be worse than it’s already is. Trump just trolling dems to the point that they will actually HELP to make immigration into an absolutely winning political issue for him in 2020. I second you that we rather prevent them from coming. But when they already here and getting released, by all means – dump them in libtard’s backyards. Maybe people there start waking up a bit – it’s amazing how fast socialist ideas getting forgotten when people start actually living it…

Not sure what to make of this as I read the transcript of her interview (posted by NPR) & she says nothing that Trump posted.

Having said that, it’s an absolutely stupid idea to send these invaders to any sanctuary city/ state. They get counted in the census, which means more funding for that state. And let’s get serious, Congress hasn’t taken any money away from states that protect illegals, so they won’t do it now.
WE ALL pay for this invasion.

What ever happened to setting up 5-6 contained camps along the border?
Trump said Feb 15 in his speech, there is $415M for “humanitarian aid at the border.

I’m against releasing these lawless aliens into our country. But man, these freaking pathetic and hypocritical sanctuary cities sure don’t like the idea either, in spite of all the BS they pump out to the contrary. Dump a couple thousand in this jackass mayor’s backyard. Toss the rest of the wall of Pelosi’s compound. Phony, lying bastards.

They are all hypocrites. Do as I say, not as I do. I think Trump did this to scare the bejesus out of them and throw their hypocrisy in their faces. They know they can’t afford such an influx of illegals. If there were walls around sanctuary cities, I’d say go ahead and send them. But there aren’t any such walls. Accordingly, they’ll spread like roaches to other cities and communities. And then we’ll be back where we started.

The big downside is increasing the numbers of Congressional districts that would be awarded California after this huge population boost.

Add the very high birth rate illegals instantly product that will kick in before the 2020 Census -which counts all persons for congressional district allocations – legal, illegal, adults, children, registered voters or not.

Do the math: million new illegals and within 2 years you have at least two new anchor babies each. More congressional reps and more electoral college votes going to illegal immigrant fueled California. Yes, the Democrats are that cynical.

I’m no fan of this president, but I am a huge fan of this policy.

Absolutely transport and release to sanctuary cities all illegals currently in detention awaiting immigration hearings. They’ll still get a notice to appear and in the highly unlikely event they show up to their immigration hearing, they’ll be in a far more lenient jurisdiction.

Sanctuary cities want to provide sanctuaries, we’re helping the illegals get to the sanctuary cities safely. They made their bed, let them lie in it.

While it’s funny karma, it’s also telling that Trump has to do this more than halfway into his term just to keep his base with him. He is not expanding his vote. The only positive here is Dems haven’t unified yet, but they have a lot of time.

Just do it right and keep them in tent cities or deport them

I doubt seriously if he’ll do it. I think he’s just messing with the Dems’ heads. And it’s working! Maybe now they’ll get their act together and vote on some sane legislation. They were so not foreseeing this happening. They thought they could flood the borders with illegals so Texas would turn blue. Surprise! Now it’s backfiring on them. But that’s the way they do everything. They never consider the possible far reaching consequences. Oh well….

How is this empty rhetoric? Isn’t the point of sanctuary cities to house illegal people safely? I mean, it’s almost a liberal Democratic bullet point. And, Chicago Rahm declared our country a sanctuary country. So, although you despise Trump, this is about the Left’s hypocrisy (and hate). I bet if someone brought you a cake today, you would say that it’s proof Trump’s base doesn’t like him. (Yeah, you make that much sense.)

The hypocrisy is stunning.

The truth is illegal immigrants are a net drain on society. These aren’t people with PhDs and piles of seed money looking to create the next great start-up, they’re largely people who can’t speak English, with little to no education; many are illiterate in their native language. They will become the servant class for the liberal elite and their wealthy donors. More importantly to the left, they will be dependent on government. ~ Derek Hunter

California loses $23 billion tax dollars– net– every single year providing free goods and services to illegals.

Gov Newsom already has a huge budget gap to fill as revenues decline. The top 150,000 households in the state of 40 million, who pay 50% of the entire state taxes, are starting to pack up and leave.

Trump’s new tax laws limiting deductions on state taxes fo $10,000 was a huge wake-up call exposing out of control spending states like California.

When this rumor first broke I though it was a mean Media trick. Then as the story progressed and Trump first weighed in I figured he was doing his Master Trolling thing.

But it is clear to me now that, as long as this is legal, which it appears to be, that this is a genius move.

First choice would be to STOP the asylum policy ASAP until the laws can be fixed. But for now, this points out the utter hypocrisy of the Dem position. Too many places have had to absorb “migrants” with no say in the matter, with devastating results.

It’s simplistic thinking to believe that everyone in Blue states are liberal and therefore deserve to be punished. And, of course, since these stupid states give out voter’s pamphlets with driver’s licenses, Trump’s plan will backfire. It won’t create a backlash against illegals and more votes for Republicans — it will just make Blue states bluer, and likely have them leaking out into Red states like Texas, thereby succeeding in turning Texas blue where Obama failed.

Too true. Remember when Obama was holding the illegals briefly then releasing them into the general population, where some clever organizers were transporting them to carefully picked places throughout the United States? And everyone thought that was devilishly clever — emphasis on devilish — since it would only help the Democrats, not the Republicans? Yes, as someone has pointed out, they’re going to have to be released anyway, but this way they get released right into the bluest of the blue cities, where the Democrat organizers have perfected — as you point out — their schemes. Who on earth expects Soros, et al, to not transport these lawbreakers to whatever region they hope to take over? But they can’t vote! As you point out the DEAD vote. How difficult is it to get live ones to commit voter fraud, especially when they tell them that the Dems are the ones… Read more »

The illegals will be released in sanctuary cities where the effect will either be for the previously silent majority to overturn the absurd sanctuary city policy or force sanctuary city residents to pick up the tab for the absurd policy they continue to endorse.

I really doubt releasing these aliens in sanctuary cities will lead to mass migrations from blue states to red states.

I think this is brilliant because most of these cities are just uber-leftist mayors and city councilors, far from the border, virtue signaling for positive media coverage. Making them eat their own recipe is totally appropriate.

So, we have pro illegal sanctuary city democrats refusing to take more illegal immigrants because they think it’s immoral and unfair to the legal tax paying citizens of their cities. This is why the democrats keep on losing. McConnell exposed them for the frauds they are when he called their bluff and called for a vote on their Green New Deal and none of the pathetic weasels voted for it.

Now, Trump exposes them for being the uber hypocrites they are when he threatened to ship more illegals to the democrat’s sanctuary cities.
