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….

I don’t care how mad I am at Trump. That is funny.
And it shows as I said below that Miller himself leaked it, just to set up this entire “well, I thought you wanted them???” situation. I can’t believe how stupid the WaPo kikes are to get caught out like this.
Original article follows.
This is legitimately hilarious.
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.”
After the White House pressed again in February, ICE’s legal department rejected the idea as inappropriate and rebuffed the administration.
A White House official and a spokesman for DHS sent nearly identical statements to The Post on Thursday, indicating that the proposal is no longer under consideration.
“This was just a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion,” the White House statement said.
Pelosi’s office blasted the plan.
“The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” said Pelosi spokeswoman Ashley Etienne.
So it is cruel to send immigrants to your district?
Did I hear that right, Nancy?
I thought everyone wanted immigrants?
I thought they were a blessing to the culture and the economy?
Wasn’t Trump doing you a favor by flooding your district with these people?
If you want them all in America, why on earth would you not want them all in your district?
I cannot comprehend…!
It’s being alleged that Stephen Miller planned this.
And I can’t imagine anyone else in the administration would be able to think something like this up.
The thing about this is: there would be no way to do it without people finding out about it. A plan to do it was leaked to WaPo, because they never actually did it. If they had done it, you would have all of these buses pulling up and dumping these people and everyone would know they did it.
So the entire purpose of such a plan is to get the Democrats to react by complaining that they don’t want to be punished by having all of these vibrant enrichers dumped in their neighborhood.
And it is the same effect when you have them publish it in the media, as they are doing now.
I think Miller himself leaked it to the media, because Trump decided not to do it.
The Washington Post and Nancy Pelosi are now openly saying that it is evil for Trump to inflict the horrible punishment of buses of immigrants in Democrat neighborhoods.
And they are apparently completely clueless about how this looks for them.
WaPo and Pelosi talk nonstop about how anyone who does not want a bunch of third world brown people in their neighborhood is an evil racist.
So what are they now?
This is the only narrative that would make sense:
Despite his partisan distaste for the Democrats, Donald Trump planned to deliver them a great gift by busing tens of thousands of illiterate Central American migrants to their districts. By doing so, Trump would have been giving a serious boost to the economies of these districts, and also helping them to enrich their culture with vibrant diversity, and fulfill the dream of the Statue of Liberty poem.
But that isn’t the narrative they’re running with. They’re saying Trump was evil for considering inflicting the cruel punishment of immigrants onto them.
Pelosi needs to come out and explain why she isn’t thanking Donald Trump for plotting to send her all of these enrichers, who would have been so good for the San Francisco economy and helped to make their culture more vibrant.
Because right now, with all of this “cruel punishment” talk, these people are really sounding like some hardcore skin-haters.
Throughout the entire 1500 word WaPo article, they never once mention the contradiction inherent in the fact that they have aggressively promoted these people as good for America and that they are saying that sending them to people’s neighborhoods is a punishment. They just say flat out: “sending migrants to a district to cruelly punish.”
What did they mean by that?
