Democrats are trying to block President Trump’s attempts to secure the border.
And now President Trump is firing back.
This new proposal is nothing short of an ultimatum for Nancy Pelosi that will destroy her career.
Democrats are open borders radicals.
The party has increasingly moved to the left on immigration so rapidly and so thoroughly that they are adamant against any sort of proposal to curb illegal immigration or secure the border.
The party has completely abandoned any pretense of being supportive of defending American sovereignty and national security, while at the same time openly welcoming illegal immigrants into the country in droves.
But President Trump has a plan that has left Democrats outraged.
If he can’t deport illegal immigrants, the least that can be done is ship them off to sanctuary cities and states across the country.
If Democratic-controlled cities and congressional districts want an open border and a wave of illegal immigrants entering the country, surely they wouldn’t have any problems with those same migrants flooding the parts of the country that are dominated by Democratic politicians.
Except, they do have a problem with it.
Democrats want open borders, but they want conservative parts of America to pay for it.
They want unfettered illegal immigration, but not for the parts of the country under their control.
And when President Trump floated the idea of shipping migrants who enter the country illegally off to places like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, Democrats lost their minds.
“House Democrats on Monday blasted the Trump administration over its ‘bizarre and unlawful’ proposal to release immigrant detainees into sanctuary cities, and demanded documents from the White House and the Department of Homeland Security related to the floated policy,” reports Fox News.
Democrats also claimed that if it were enacted, it would be used for “political purposes.”
Except, their opposition to securing the border is also entirely based on “political purposes” as well.
The hypocrisy here is stunning, but then again that’s nothing new for career politicians like Nancy Pelosi.
And her right-hand man in Congress is now trying to block the proposal from moving forward.
“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.; House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md.; and House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., penned a letter to DHS and the White House Monday requesting emails, and other communications between administration officials related to the proposal,” adds Fox News.
“We are deeply troubled by multiple reports, recently confirmed by the President, that the Trump Administration is considering releasing detained immigrants into congressional districts represented by Democrats in a bizarre and unlawful attempt to score political points,” the chairmen wrote.
“Not only does the Administration lack the legal authority to transfer detainees in this manner, it is shocking that the President and senior Administration officials are even considering manipulating release decisions for purely political reasons,” they continued.
The problem, of course, is that Democrats want it both ways.
They want illegal immigration to continue, but not in their backyards.
And that’s where President Trump has found an opening to slam them on.
