It’s official, folks!
President Donald Trump says that illegal aliens the Department of Homeland Security can no longer keep in custody will be sent to cities claiming to be safe spaces for them.
Those Illegal Immigrants who can no longer be legally held (Congress must fix the laws and loopholes) will be, subject to Homeland Security, given to Sanctuary Cities and States! – Trump tweeted.
The tweet follows snarky threats made over the weekend by the President, suggesting he could do just this:
And Trump’s seriousness in pursuing this plan is underscored by a Washington Post article this weekend detailing how the President tried to implement it last fall, but was undermined by NeverTrump and Obama holdover staff inside the DHS. this reportedly was a factor in his recent firing of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on April 7th.
Trump got a major boost over the weekend when several legal experts said his plan was “perfectly legal.”
And Brandon Judd, president of the Border Patrol Union, said the move to ship illegals to sanctuary cities was “perfectly legal” and “brilliant”:
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Sunday President Trump likes a plan to dump illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities and Democrats have said they want them there so the proposal could give ‘everybody’ a win.
‘The president likes the idea and Democrats have said they want these individuals into their communities so let’s see if it works and everybody gets a win out of it,’ she said on ABC’s ‘This Week.’
Get ready, Nancy….here they come!
