Pelosi fumes over White House plan to release immigrant detainees in sanctuary cities

"A scuttled White House proposal to release immigrant detainees in San Francisco and other sanctuary cities triggered a fierce backlash Friday from Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose office called the idea “despicable.”
The Washington Post first reported that the White House proposed sending the detainees to sanctuary cities, including Pelosi's district, twice in the last six months. 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 idea was again considered in February, amid the standoff with Congress over a border wall."

Interesting that she is upset by a plan that gives sanctuary citws more people to protect. I thought she was all for their release.
Perhaps it was just a little too close to home to be "Proper" .
What a Jerk. If it is not right for her district, it is not right for any district.

    Funniest thing I've read all week was this today. They are falling over themselves trying to call it evil, mean, and other pejoratives to send these illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. But the question really is: mean to whom? I could agree with an argument that sending these people to Chicago or San Francisco might be borderline or outright inhumane, but somehow I don't think that is what they mean. If it isn't mean to the illegal immigrants to send them there, then it must be mean to the people who live there. And if there is no risk to their systems of "welfare", to their economy - specifically the low wages market - and the very lives and property of the legal residents from these people, then where is the problem?

    The move is straight out of Alinsky's book: hold the powerful to their own professed standards. Suddenly they start claiming that releasing these people into the country would be illegal, that it is a threat to Democrats to to send them to the very places that have declared themselves open to them and claiming the government has no legal authority to do anything about it. Suddenly, releasing illegal immigrants into the country would be unconstitutional. Out of nowhere they've discovered we don't provide the resources to ICE and TBP to manage the influx of cases that have materialized, apparently, overnight. Shockingly the "trickle" becomes a flood.

    In addition to the "hold them to their own standards" aspect, this is also "flood the system until it breaks". As the rich continue moving out of these areas, sending thousands into their schemes that will "be a drain" in their system will collapse it further and faster. Ultimately, that is what they are afraid of: their bluff being called and their lies exposed.

    This is the "in your backyard, but not mine" attitude of these Neo Communists. It reminds me of Ted Kennedy pushing for wind power, but got upset when it was suggested Hyannis Port be used as a location to build a wind farm. Their hypocrisy knows no limits.

      They are all such hypocrites. Didn't Nasty Nancy call the illegals "Little Gifts of Love." Well, Nancy, we are sending you our love.
      BTW, if we need vehicles to transport them to the sanctuary cities, then use the caravan buses that they are coming in. The illegals don't even have to get off at the border. Just keep them driving on until reach the walls surrounding all the Liberals huge houses.

    I love it! Just love it!

    Trump knows how to twist these reptiles around his thumb!

    Ever since Barr announced there was spying, the panic and headlessness are palpable on the left.

    It is delicious!

    Finally, finally we are moving toward justice.

    It took a long time but it was worth the wait!

    I only worry about sanctuary cities like San Francisco. The City is already a sewer pit and if illegals will be dumped on it, they may show up in our districts as well.

    We should not be penalized for the stupidity nad sins of Diane Feinstein,Kamala Harris or Gavin Newsom. They live in their gated mansions which would never be breached by mobs if migrants.

    This idea was amazing. The dems want open borders, but they dont want the migrants climbing the gates of THEIR precious gated communities

    I think a good idea would be for us to prepare pamphlets in spanish talking up the freebie benefits available and great living conditions in SF, SD, LA, and other dem cities, and encouraging the migrants to go there. In addition, free bus tickets from the border to those places as well as the phone numbers to call to get welfare once they get there.

    Wont be long before the dems come to the table and fix the stupid asylum laws.

    People who say he is not playing 3D Chess are right. He is SO FAR BEYOND 3D I cannot even calculate it. I Think he plays String Theory Chess!

    And he says annoying and stupid things to keep everyone distracted.

    I Loved Reagan. How he converted from a Dem to a republican, to how he spoke. I did not love everything he did, but he helped me become a conservative at a young age.


    because as bad as the media was to Reagan... Trump is savaged like no other, and he lets it roll off his back and attacks back.

    He is Legend... And I want his head on Mt. Rushmore, looking up at the presidents up there, and captioned with A tweet: (They were NOT Fake News!)

    They want immigrants, don't they? This is fulfilling their wish - especially since they keep getting judges to block the executive actions and won't take steps as the Legislature under their Constitutional authority...

    It sounds like a great idea. These were people who were going to be released anyway pending determination of they asylum status. They should go to cities that are supportive of immigration and trade, including but not limited to sanctuary cities.

    The biggest problem I see is that most of those poor South American folks would end up living in SoCal. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, and I grew up in Monterey.

    NOT in MY backyard !!! MAybe Trump needs to ask these illegal aliens where they would prefer to go, to a city where they are not wanted, or to a city where they are wanted. It should be their right as an illegal alien. Maybe Pelosi could suggest an alternative, San Diego, or wherever, could say they are full, where would you like to send the rest of these illegal aliens that are coming in? Put in on a Special Ballot, let the people decide.

    Personally I would support releasing all the Illegals in these so called Sanctuary Cities if and ONLY IF these two conditions are met.
    1. We can GUARANTEE that the people Non-Citizens and Citizens alike will not be able to leave said Sanctuary Cities.
    2. That Non-Citizens will not be counted for Voting or Federal Aid purposes.

    Of course these conditions could NEVER be enforced. In fact it is my strong belief that EXACTLY the opposite would happen.

    Now consider if you will. I think it would be a blessing to 'the Loonies' if we sent as many immigrants as possible to California where the 'fruits and nuts' live. Think of all the cheap labor they will have. I'll bet they don't pay the minimum wage of $15!
