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….

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.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
