    Trump weighs sending 'unlimited supply' of immigrants to sanctuary cities

    WASHINGTON, April 12 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday he was considering sending illegal immigrants in the country to so-called sanctuary cities, prompting U.S. mayors to accept such an offer as the battle over border security raged.

    Frustrated by rising numbers of undocumented immigrants arriving at the southern border and a failure to get Congress to fully fund a U.S.-Mexico border wall, Trump taunted Democrats by dangling the possibility of an influx of illegal immigrants into their communities.

    "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," Trump wrote on Twitter.

    Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney responded in a statement: "While the Trump administration's proposal shows their disdain to basic human dignity, the City (Philadelphia) would be prepared to welcome these immigrants just as we have embraced our immigrant communities for decades."

    In February, a federal appeals court said the Trump administration could not terminate federal grants to Philadelphia for its refusal to cooperate with immigration agents seeking to deport immigrants.

    In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement "We would welcome these migrants with open arms, just as we welcomed Syrian refugees, just as we welcomed Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria and just as we welcome Rohingya refugees fleeing genocide in Myanmar."

    Sanctuary cities are local jurisdictions that generally give undocumented immigrants safe harbor by refusing to use their resources to help enforce federal immigration laws that could lead to deportations.

    Those localities argue that it is not their responsibility to get involved in federal enforcement and that doing so could hinder policing efforts within communities.

    The Washington Post first reported on Thursday that the White House has been considering a plan for transporting immigrants in detention and releasing them into sanctuary cities that are Democratic strongholds.

    The newspaper reported there was resistance from some high-level Department of Homeland Security officials concerned about several aspects of such a plan, including the potential costs.

    Nevertheless, Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, said of sanctuary cities, "We can give them an unlimited supply" of immigrants.

    White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said these would be "illegal aliens that are already set for release," which likely would include families with children.

    House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hometown of San Francisco is another sanctuary city.

    In remarks to reporters on Friday, Pelosi, a Democrat, said she was not aware of the newspaper report. But she added, "it's just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face, as a country, as a people, to address who we are, a nation of immigrants."

    Pelosi was in Leesburg, Virginia, where House Democrats were wrapping up a three-day retreat.

    One immigration expert, who asked not to be identified, noted that undocumented immigrants in federal custody could be at one of several stages of the adjudication process and that Trump likely has the power to have them sent to different jurisdictions from where they are being held.

    But the source added, "This is a stunt. It doesn't enhance the efficiency of the process."

    Trump's challenge to Democrats came one day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican like Trump, told reporters that he wanted to launch bipartisan negotiations to seek solutions to the nation's immigration woes.

    In March alone, 103,492 undocumented immigrants have been taken into custody along the southern border or turned away. Many of them are from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala and are seeking asylum in the United States away from high levels of violent crime and illegal drugs at home.

    I wish he didn't warn they. Just use military buses and ever use C-130's and C-17's then simply OPEN THE DOORS when they land in what ever sanctuary city they did. 4,000 a day, there are plenty of sanctuary cities with "open arms".

    Pelosi: Trump’s Sanctuary City Proposal Is ‘Unworthy of the Presidency of the United States’

    PAM KEY12 Apr 201911,126


    Friday in Leesburg, VA at the House Democratic Caucus Retreat closing press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reacted to reports that the Trump administration considered a plan to release detained immigrants into “sanctuary cities.”

    Pelosi said, “I do not know anything about it, but again, it is another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and the disrespect for the challenges we face as a country and people to address who we are, a nation of immigrants.”

    Trump tweeted on Friday, “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.”

    The communist hypocrites can cry all they want. This proposal makes perfect logical sense. It’s funny how racist they are when the rubber meets the road.

    Just goes to show you that Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats, against building the wall; want VOTES from illegals BUT don't want them to live in the same city as they reside in. However, it's okay with them to re-locate them to other States & cities, regardless of what we think about it.

    Nancy would just add Concertina wire on top of that 12 ft. Wall around her house.
    I think it's a perfectly good idea.

    I agree. From everything we have learned from Trump I believe he seriously wants to do that if he can't send them back.

    And what makes anyone think they would stay in those city's once the money runs out. Maybe some can move to Mar-Largo and go to work for Trump. He has been known to hire Illegals in the past....LOL.
    First off our country is full but now we going to invite more and bus them to some city's. Come on Trump make up your mind what's left of it. LMAO.

    Now we see someone saying our country is full AFTER saying for months he didn't want a wall.

    The Democrats do NOT want them in the sanctuary cities because they have enough to allow the Democrats to win every election in them. They want to illegals to spread to places like Kentucky so the Democrats can use their votes to win all the time. That's all it's about.
