The left has come out in droves to denounce the idea floated by the White House to release illegals into sanctuary cities. Why? Surely you should want more of this diverse group which will only strengthen your community, right?
WASHINGTON – The revelation late Thursday that the White House tried multiple times to pressure immigration authorities into releasing migrants on the streets of sanctuary citiesdid not go over well with Democrats, who denounced the Trump administration as cruel.
The plan, reported by the Washington Post, was concocted to retaliate against Democrats and target sanctuary cities in liberal strongholds. It didn’t come to fruition after pushback from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Post reported. ICE rejected the idea after at first thinking it was a joke, the Post reported.
Members of Congress and immigration advocates called the idea inhumane and called for those within President Donald Trump’s administration to be held accountable.
“This reporting exposes yet a new level of inhumanity in this Administration,” Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, wrote on Twitter. “Those who pursued this disgusting policy are beneath the dignity of the offices they hold and must be held to account.”
And further down:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district was specifically targeted, according to the Post, noting that the White House wanted to transport migrants into her congressional district in San Francisco.
Ashley Etienne, a spokeswoman for Pelosi, called the proposal “despicable.”
“The extent of this Administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” Etienne said in a statement. “Using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal.”
Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., agreed.
“Immigrants are people. Not pawns to deploy in the President’s petty political fights,” Quigley said on Twitter. “@realDonaldTrump’s cruelty knows no limits.”
Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro, who is running for president in 2020, reacted to the news live on CNN during a town hall on Thursday night.
“The cruelty of this administration never seems to end,” Castro said, noting the list of Trump’s immigration policies that have been criticized or challenged in court. “These folks want us to choose cruelty as a weapon against these people and against political opponents.”
Welcome to Clown World, honk honk. Here the left can demand accountability and it is “cruel” and “despicable” to put illegals in the regions that fight the hardest to bring them here in the first place. Obviously these clowns cannot see the irony of the situation.
The reality is this policy would not do anything anyways. Unless you build walls around these sanctuary cities they will just seep into the rest of American society as they always do. The only solution is a military one at the border, using military force to stop invasion of our Southern border. But it is amusing to see the left explode in response.
At some point the general public surely must stop taking these clowns seriously, right? Or are they already so dumbed down to the point that it does not matter anyway? The left has been using “minorities” as political pawns for decades. One court reversal that will help will allow President Trump to send asylum seekers back to Mexico during the asylum process. We are at the point where border jumpers don’t even bother running anymore. They are waiting on street corners to be picked up knowing they’ll be released anyways. Great system we have.
Again, this could all be solved very quickly if we actually used the military in the proper way it is supposed to be used. It wouldn’t take much strict military force at all to send a message to all who would try. Instead we let these vibrants take advantage of the soft good-will of the American public. Taking advantage of our good-will, then immediately breaking the law in the country. Off to a good start. But hey, they’re just looking for a better life for themselves, right? So we cannot say or do or question anything lest we be dubbed racist. Even if it means the death of America as we know it. Clown World.
