White House considered releasing detained illegal aliens in sanctuary cities

Reports indicate White House officials have tried to pressure US immigration authorities to release illegal aliens detained at the border into so-called sanctuary cities. However, a White House official was quoted as saying the proposal was no longer under consideration. The Trump administration officials proposed the measure in November.

I don't see a problem with this. If the progressives want all migrants to stay, then they shouldn't have a problem holding them in their cities. let them live along side their poor desperate migrants and learn first-hand why we limit immigration to our country.

If illegal aliens are A OK, then Im sure sanctuary cities will not view them as "punishment" and will welcome them with open arms...

I love how the press releases this story like "Aha we got the Orange Man now!" The only people who are outraged never liked Trump anyway. Trump supporters are like, "Brilliant!" It is also worth pointing out that it sounds like this was an idea that someone proposed which was shot down and never seriously considered. The fact that the press is trying to suggest that this was something that Trump legitimately planned to do is dishonest in the extreme...so just another day in the world of Fake News.

I would honest to God love to hear someone on the left explain why we shouldn't send the migrants to sanctuary cities and try their best not to sound like a conservative if possible

Wasn’t that part of the reason these cities decided to house illegal immigrants? I mean MN just voted to give them drivers licenses.

How is it a punishment? I thought all illegal immigrants were safe to be around? Plus a boost to the economy and such

Punish? Don’t they mean culturally enrich with vibrant diversity? What city wouldn’t want a bunch of geniuses and hard workers. If the sanctuary cities don’t want to take them, maybe we need to rethink their value. It’s always easier to be open to this when it isn’t your own backyard.

looks like President Trump proved his point.... the sanctuary city Dems claim to want the illegal migrants...showing off their vurtue signalling... and when Pres. Trump says, Ok, here they are, the Dems whine about it....

Isn't that what sanctuary cities and democrats want? "Deportation is inhumane, evil, etc etc"?

One of the best ideas Trump has had. Make Dem controlled sanctuary cities reject illegal aliens! Stable genius! 🇺🇸

What a genius move. Dems fight him on not letting in the migrants because dems think they should be able to get in, so he says ok, but only in sanctuary cities. Dems respond with not wanting them to get released into their city, which then calls for them to take it seriously.

How is it punishment? It's what they've been advocating for 2 years.

'Sanctuary Cities' is fast becoming a euphemism for dystopian hellhole.
