Well, if they must be released where else should he release them? Wouldn’t Dems want them sent to ‘welcoming’ cities?
In probably the most blatant NIMBY move ever by the Open Borders pushers, CNN was aghast this morning at the idea that Trump would consider such an “inhumane” idea—using children and families as pawns in a political game is an outrage (they sniffed!).
(NIMBY you may recall stands for Not in My Backyard and is frequently used when some project citizens object to is proposed for their neighborhood.)
Below is CNN’s news, but it doesn’t do justice to the outrage expressed by the morning anchors. (Yes, I watch CNN every morning for a little while to see what ticks off the Libs on any given day!).
Trump pressured Nielsen to release detained immigrants into sanctuary cities at the behest of Stephen Miller they say.
The (now!) saintly Ms. Nielsen refused.
Trump pressured Nielsen to release detained immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities
The Trump administration pressured the Department of Homeland Security to release immigrants detained at the southern border into so-called sanctuary cities in part to retaliate against Democrats who oppose President Donald Trump’s plans for a border wall, a source familiar with the discussions told CNN on Thursday.
[What do they mean by “retaliate,” I thought the sanctuary city political leaders loved the “new Americans” arriving daily from Mexico!—ed]
Trump personally pushed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to follow through on the plan, the source said. Nielsen resisted and the DHS legal team eventually produced an analysis that killed the plan, which was first reported by The Washington Post. [Sounds like the Nielsen acolytes are squealing.—ed]
The proposal is another example of Trump’s willingness to enact hardline immigration policies to deliver on border security, a key issue for his political base.
Thursday’s reports come as the President has amplified his rhetoric on illegal immigration in recent weeks, even threatening to close the southern border if Congress and Mexico don’t take action.
White House senior adviser Stephen Miller urged senior DHS officials to make the plan a reality, the source said. The plan finally died after Miller and other White House officials pushed it in February, according to the source.
“Sanctuary city” is a broad term applied to jurisdictions that have policies in place designed to limit cooperation with or involvement in federal immigration enforcement actions.Cities, counties and some states have a range of informal policies as well as laws that qualify as “sanctuary” positions.
Most of the policies center on not cooperating with federal law enforcement on immigration policies. Many of the largest cities in the country have forms of such policies.

What should you do?
Tell the President don’t release any of them, but if they must, sanctuary cities should be the administration’s first choice.
Heck, I would make a formal request to each of them and ask how many border-crossers would they commit to caring for? (And commit to making sure they appear at the asylum court hearing!). Call them out by name! Call out every mayor! Get them all on record!
And, then to be sure that local media reports how many are coming, send out White House press releases to media outlets in each city with the number the city leaders have committed to welcome (house and feed on the local taxpayer’s dime!).
