or at least, properly vindictive ones, the White House considered and rejected an idea I had a long time ago: White House wanted to release immigrants into sanctuary cities to punish Democrats.
The White House tried to pressure immigration authorities into releasing captured immigrants into sanctuary cities, particularly targeting liberal strongholds in hopes of hurting Democrats, according to a report from The Washington Post.Really, punish? I thought that these immigrants were a welcome source of diversity and strength, and less criminal than native Americans. Althouse posted this this morning, and some of the comments are priceless:
The report noted that the White House has attempted to pitch the idea to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at least twice since November. The White House suggested both transporting migrants who were captured at the border and those currently being held in facilities to sanctuary cities where local authorities don't cooperate with federal immigration enforcement authorities.
Among the areas targeted: Democratic strongholds, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district in San Francisco. (my idea)
The Post reported that the proposal sought to ease the bed shortage at immigration detention centers and "send a message to Democrats."
The White House did not immediately respond to inquires about the proposal. In a statement to the Post, the White House admitted it was "just a suggestion that was floated and rejected."
The Department of Homeland Security echoed the White House in a statement to USA TODAY, saying, "this was a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion."
This idea occurred to me long ago. Make the city grovel in it’s dust. If illegal immigration imports new Democrat voters, having to live alongside it’s effects creates new Republican ones.
If true, there is certainly a devilish quality to the plan. But if the folks in the sanctuary cities are the ones pressing for releasing these aliens into our country, and if they’re making a big show out of not cooperating with federal officials (for example, by refusing to notify the feds when one of these aliens gets released from police custody after some sort of brush with the criminal law), then why not release the aliens into those jurisdictions?The sanctuary city people ought to applaud this as the only humane thing to do!
Sanctuary cities may be run by Trump opponents, but they are populated by U.S. citizens of all types.Who voted for those leftist creeps.
Explain how all those Somalis got to Minnesota. A little colder than Somalia.
I think it is an excellent idea. Nancy and Gavin want lots of illegals and will "resist" attempts to send them home. What better place than California, especially as I don't live there anymore.
Maybe those "U.S. citizens of all types" will figure out that voting for the left is not as good an idea when you have to pay a price,.
The reaction of the left to this proposal is validation of Fen's law: "The Left doesn't really believe in the things they lecture the rest of us about."
