President Donald Trump is strongly considering placing illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities.
Trump is mulling this course of action in response to Democrats’ unwillingness to change immigration laws.
Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 12, 2019
According to a Washington report, the White House approached Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on two separate occasions to discuss the possibility of transferring detained illegal immigrants and letting them loose into sanctuary cities.
This idea was pitched by White House adviser Stephen Miller. He first proposed it to immigration officials in November when a Central American caravan was approaching the southern border. Miller did so again in February when Democrats and the White House were at each other’s throats about funding for Trump’s wall.
According to DHS officials, the administration wanted migrants to be transferred to Democratic strongholds, above all, sanctuary cities. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco was apparently one of those targets.
Not only would this proposal keep detainment centers from being overcrowded, but it would serve as a political message to sanctuary cities.
On both occasions, ICE rejected this idea. In the first case, an ICE official claimed this proposal had too many budgetary, liability, and “PR risks as well.” During the second time, ICE’s legal department declared that this proposal was “inappropriate.”
In a statement to the Washington Post, the White House said, “This was just a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion.”
Despite her support of sanctuary cities, Pelosi criticized the Trump administration over this proposal.
Ashley Etienne, a spokeswoman for Pelosi, stated “The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated.”
She added, “Using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable.”
A spokesman from the White House said that this proposal wasn’t about partisan politics but rather about relieving border communities of the burdens of mass migration. The spokesman said, “Why wouldn’t we send them to districts where Democrats say ‘we want ’em?’”
With sanctuary cities overflowing with illegal immigrants, Democratic elites have every reason to reject this proposal. Such a massive influx of migrants could create European-style immigrant ghettoes and lead to potential social unrest.
However, Democrats also recognize that maintaining the mass migration status quo is to their advantage given immigrant’s proclivities to vote for leftist policies.
With a divided Congress, Trump doesn’t have many options at his disposal in order to bring about immigration reform.
However, it’s clear that his base desperately wants it. According to a BLP report, 65% of Republicans polled believed that immigration is the #1 issue in the upcoming presidential election.

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism
U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.
He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”
The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”
That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”
Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”
But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.
Sanders is not alone.
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.
From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:
Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.
Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.
In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”
Kobach gets it.
The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.
He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
