White House proposed releasing immigrant detainees in sanctuary cities, targeting political foes

 

Rachael Bade, Nick Miroff

Washington Post

4/12/19

 

EXCERPT:

 

White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of “sanctuary cities” to retaliate against President Trump’s political adversaries, according to Department of Homeland Security officials and email messages reviewed by The Washington Post.

 

Trump administration officials have proposed transporting detained immigrants to sanctuary cities at least twice in the past six months — once in November, as a migrant caravan approached the U.S. southern border, and again in February, amid a standoff with Democrats over funding for Trump’s border wall.

 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco was among those the White House wanted to target, according to DHS officials. The administration also considered releasing detainees in other Democratic strongholds.

 

White House officials first broached the plan in a Nov. 16 email, asking officials at several agencies whether members of the caravan could be arrested at the border and then bused “to small- and mid-sized sanctuary cities,” places where local authorities have refused to hand over illegal immigrants for deportation.

 

The White House told U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that the plan was intended to alleviate a shortage of detention space but also served to send a message to Democrats. The attempt at political retribution raised alarm within ICE, with a top official responding that it was rife with budgetary and liability concerns, and noting that “there are PR risks as well.”

I don’t see why democrats would have an issue with this. I mean they want to support and protect them. That job would be so much easier if they lived next door.

California is/has run out of money so why not give them more reasons to spend more money they don't have.

This is what should be done. They have made no mistake that they welcome them, so let them have them.

If they HAVE to be released, release them into the hearts of sanctuary cities.

I would call being shielded from law enforcement BETTER than your average human being and well above garbage.

Excuse me, but I live in a sanctuary city – not because I want to, and I will be moving as soon as I can retire and get the heck out of here. But in the mean time, please don’t assume that you are punishing the correct people by sending us more illegals. It is the law abiding, hard working, conservatives who didn’t vote for the Marxist, progressive, champagne socialist politicians in charge that end up suffering. My neighborhood is being overwhelmed by “dayworkers” waiting for the trucks that pick them up to go to constructions sites and we are are seeing more crime in our area all the time.

And Trump wants to send them where they will be treated like human beings. What's wrong with that? Would you rather have them sent to an anti-illegal immigrant location?

No one is calling them garbage and no one is treating them as such. But, look at it this way...

 

If 10,000 illegals came to my hometown sanctuary city of NY over the next 3 months, you and every other liberal would not bat an eye. You'd say "great" and welcome them with open arms.

 

But, if Trump puts 10,000 illegals in NYC next week, all of a sudden you and every liberal object? Why? To the President's method of delivering them to NY? He's not throwing them out of a moving car.

 

The end result would be the same - 10,000 more illegals in NYC, but the President will do it much quicker.

 

You and other liberals are only objecting to the fact that the President would be outsmarting liberals in this case, and would be doing in one fell swoop what liberal politicians allow and encourage to happen on an everyday basis in dribs and drabs.

How is making sure they go to safe cities that won’t prosecute them or anything even come close to treating them as garbage ladybird? The sanctuary cities are thier safe space and those democrats can feed , house them and protect them. I see no issue unless it’s those cities don’t want to spend thier own money , hospital resources etc on them or it may raise crime. So what’s negative about it? All humans have rights and open borders for all. Better then the vetting, closing a border or not treating them as humans. So why is it treating them as human garbage to send them to the places that want to fight for thier rights? Back to the same old when it’s your responsibiity and the democrats why now is that wrong? I believe if you should put your own money and safety on your beliefs. I mean there is no such thing as illegal humans and they don’t raise crime anymore. So why does the left even debate not letting us put these people in the safest place and city for them? Does the left hate brown people? I’m also doubting I’ll ever get an answer to this question or discussion from left members

So is the democrats stance is they aren’t garbage but don’t put them on our curb in our areas or think we should feed and house them. They are equal people and humans. But we don’t have room for them and someone else needs to pay for them?

Because these are human beings, not garbage.

So you are saying one of the following:

1) conservative areas that are NOT sanctuaries would be better for the illegals than sanctuaries that democrats have specifically set up as sanctuaries

2) keeping illegals in detention would be better than sending them to sanctuaries run by democrats

3) sending illegals back to Mexico or wherever they came from would be better than sending them to sanctuaries run by democrats

 

Whichever your pick, the optics ain’t looking too good.

What do you think needs to be done with them ladybird? That’s the easiest question. Then who should pay for that? 2 easy opinion questions. I can go from there if you want or have an interest in open conversation. I think we need to stop and vet every illegal before we just give a free pass. I think kids need to be separated at the border from adults until we can determine the adult they are with is actually related and not a human trafficker. I believe we need to verify people yelling asylum are actually in danger. I believe at most they should get a goverment check for 2-3 months to get on thier feet I also think they should pay that money back when they are on thier feet. I believe the first time they break a law boot them out. I believe after we have taken care of everyone that has applications to come Leagly then they can apply to be a citizen. Any thing else is a slap in the face to people trying to come the correct way. Now what do you believe and what am I wrong on
