As Trump Threatens to Ship Undocumented Immigrants to Sanctuary Cities, Those Cities Say: We Will Welcome Them

Julia Conley, staff writer

Confirming Friday that his administration is considering sending undocumented immigrants en masse to sanctuary cities, President Donald Trump framed the proposal as a threat—but several politicians and rights advocates replied that immigrants would be welcome in those communities.

Specific Trump actions aside, as long as Trump is alive he is an abuse of power on two legs.

The venues where Trump directs immigrants will see increased prosperity while other locations will continue on their paths of mediocrity.

If Paradise California and other sites of natural disasters DON’T see an influx of immigrants there is no way they will be able to rebuild within the lifetimes of you readers.

I really like that we have sanctuary cities and that mayors are standing up to Trump, saying “we welcome migrants.” I think we should help these people as best we can. However, I question these mayors over the issue of how we will do this since we have thousands of homeless people living in tents on the streets of most of these cities, and they don’t have much love for these people. Cities are constantly trying to sweep these people up and kick them out. Where are they supposed to go to???

I can guarantee that Detroit and Lansing would eagerly accept immigrants. Saginaw and Flint, too.

The rump is flailing. He wants to build a wall to keep all the ‘rapists and murderers’ out. Then even tells Border Patrol agents to break the law to keep them out of the country. Now he wants to bring them in but ship them to cities that they will be welcome in. How does anyone on the right look at all this and think this rump creature knows what the hell he is doing.

I have the feeling that with an influx of new people without resources, maybe trump is gambling that this will turn more people against them. People say that they welcome them, but look how they welcome the homeless already? I am all for these peoples situations being dealt with, but maybe he is also just passing on federal problems onto states and cities with less resources.

LOL Good move Donnie Bone Spurs. That’ll result in even more people in this country who will vote against you in 2020. Brilliant.

They won’t be able to vote until they become US citizens.

But you might have point there. In most places no ID is required for voting so we don’t really know who’s a citizen and who’s not.

Since Donnie Bone Spurs is gifting the sanctuary cities, they would be in control of the migrants, not his border goons. They’ll have a year and a half to arrange citizenship and get registered to vote. Plus, they could be relocated to rural areas or other voting areas where Bone Spurs won by slim margins in 2016.

“President [sic] Donald Trump”

How quickly so-called “progressives” forget. Why are people giving this undeserving creature respect by referring to him as “President [sic] Donald Trump?” What is wrong with people? Do you not remember after the 2000 Judicial Coup where progressives refused to refer to illegitimate George W Bush as “president?” He was referred to as “the White House resident” or “the White House occupant” and some people wrote it “pResident Bush.” When are so-called “progressives” going to return to respecting themselves and stop giving the undeserving respect by referring to this piece as “President” with a capital “P” which also denotes respect. It’s also somewhat questionable whether this guy won the office for which he is currently occupying. When has this guy ever followed the law? He doesn’t believe in the law. He believes in fascism so why is this site respecting this guy by referring to him as “President Donald Trump?” That’s disgusting.

I do appreciate your use of the language “Undocumented Immigrants” as used in this article. Thank you for that. But for anyone who respects the current White House resident just because he’s questionably holding some office, I suggest you belong over at Fox News.

Please media people it is convoluted and involve, but can be understood and explained.

I still don’t understand why we still keep calling this the
“TRUMP ADMINISTRATION”. This night mare is designed by the Sephen Miiller the major architect. Like Stephen Colbert so apt it put it a human black hole. By the way the voters didn’t elect Trum, a flaw in our election system did:

ndment XII ELECTION OF PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT

Passed by Congress December 9, 1803. Ratified June 15, 1804. The 12th Amendment changed a portion of Article II, Section 1. A portion of the 12th Amendment was changed by the 20th Amendment

The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate;—The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;—The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President. —The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.

35 states require ID. The liberal strongholds of Wyoming and Nebraska are among those who don’t.
