If it weren’t so pathetically dumb, it would be laughable listening to Cher’s complaints about an illegal immigration problem. President Trump has been floating the possibility of transporting illegals into the sanctuary cities rather than just taking them to the nearest border town and dropping them off, and from what I’ve read so far, it’s well within the scope of his authority to make that happen. Cher’s response to that idea is almost enough to give one hope that a glimmer of understanding is beginning to creep between her ears, but I’m not going to hold my breath in anticipation.
More from Breitbart:
Pop icon Cher said Sunday that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants.
Cher said she failed to understand how the city of Los Angeles in the sanctuary state of California could afford to admit and take care of any more immigrants when city officials have failed to care for homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans.
“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher said.

The post came after President Trump threatened to bus border crossers and illegal aliens into sanctuary cities and states, like California, if the country’s asylum laws were not changed. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the White House is considering the plan.
In response, Democrat mayors across the country — like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf — have welcomed bringing illegal aliens and border crossers to their cities.

Some of the numbers regarding Los Angeles’ immigrant and homeless populations were far greater than I anticipated. It is estimated that there are 50,000 homeless in Los Angeles (yes, you read that right – fifty THOUSAND homeless). The only city with a higher number is New York City, and in addition to the homeless, there are an estimated one million illegals in the Los Angeles area, according to Pew research.
The more hard-core Democrat mayors are still saying they’ll welcome any immigrants regardless of their legal status, but it remains to be seen if they’ll get enough public backlash to make them reconsider their open-arms attitude.
My personal opinion is that if President Trump treats this situation in his usual fashion, the proposal to drop the illegals in the sanctuary cities is just punch number one of at least a one-two knockout combination, or it could be the opening salvo of a whole flurry of punches that will leave the Democrat policies bleeding out on the floor.
I’m nowhere near the strategist he is, but I do remember on at least one occasion he threatened to cut federal funding to sanctuary cities, so I could see that as a very logical next step. There is already a lot of shouting as Democrats ridicule the plan and raise their objections. In the meantime, I suppose it would behoove us to stock up on the popcorn and be ready to watch the feathers fly!
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
