President Trump has had enough of the Washington bureaucrats who play politics with national emergencies.
Trump makes a deal with Mexico to hold some migrants waiting for asylum there instead of here… an unelected judge overrules him and says no.
Trump needs to enforce the laws of the country, yet certain cities make it a political stunt and usher in showboat votes to make them sanctuaries and immune to his efforts.
The list goes on… So what is Trump to do against such odds? Against people who will only admit we have a crisis on our border in secret.
Look Trump tried to bipartisan immigration reform but the cowardly poliuticians killed it, so he has no choice but yo get tough. And if you don’t think this will work just remember: last week Pelosi’s wealthy neighbors vehemently fought against the opening of a homeless shelter in their midst – imagine the gall of making them deal with poor people or even see poverty. In other words, Pelosi will cave in a minute.
From The Hill: President Trump on Friday said his administration is considering releasing migrants into so-called “sanctuary cities,” despite his own administration saying hours earlier that the controversial idea was no longer under consideration.
“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 tweeted.
“The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!” he added.
The Washington Post reported Thursday night that White House officials proposed the idea on at least two occasions as a way to retaliate against Democrats who opposed the president’s hard-line immigration policies.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had blasted the White House over the proposal on Friday, calling the idea “disrespectful” and “unworthy” of the presidency.
Pelosi’s liberal San Francisco district was one of the sanctuary cities identified by the Trump administration, according to the Post.
“I don’t know anything about it, but again 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 county, as a people, to address who we are: a nation of immigrants,” Pelosi told reporters at the House Democrats’ policy retreat in Virginia.

From Fox News: The Trump administration proposed releasing immigrant detainees onto the streets of “sanctuary cities” — including San Francisco — on at least two occasions within the past six months as retribution against the president’s political enemies, The Washington Post reported, citing unnamed Department of Homeland Security officials and emails.
The proposal was first floated in November amid reports of a large migrant caravan from Central America making its way to the southern border. The other time it was considered — in February– occurred during a standoff between Trump and Democrats over border wall funding.
It was rejected both times by immigration agencies, the report said. A Nov. 16 email from the White House to officials at several agencies reportedly asked whether migrants could be arrested and bused to “small-and mid-sized sanctuary cities” and other Democratic strongholds.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco was considered one of the areas targeted, according to the paper. Pelosi blasted the plan Thursday, calling it “despicable” to use “human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants.”
Pelosi was furious: “The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” said Ashley Etienne, a spokeswoman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
“Using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable,” she concluded.
