Before we get too far into this story, I want you to realize that since it is coming from the WaPo, there is only a 30% chance that it’s true. The WaPo is in a tight battle with the NYT and CNN for the top fake news site, although CNN is starting to pull away. But the WaPo is holding its own. They now claim that the White House wanted ICE to begin dropping off illegal aliens in sanctuary cities. I wish this were true. Sanctuary cities and states must start paying their fair share for illegal aliens.
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.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
