Sorry, R44, but that is not correct. If that same vote takes place in 2020, with voters voting Democratic and Republican as they did in 2018, the Democratic Presidential candidate would win. Democrat turnout was a full 8 percentage points higher, even with Republicans going all in on fear, and even with the benefit of a "caravan" approaching the Southern border.
Even in the Senate, it wasn't a draw. That was the toughest Senate election map in over a century and Democrats managed to hold their losses to just two seats. Several months earlier, Republicans were gloating over the possibility of getting to a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.
Fear didn't work in 2018; there isn't much reason to believe it will work in 2020.

R46, Democratic turnout was high because of the typically blue districts turned out in full force and PA redistricted. And, it was moderate Democrats and blue dogs, and not progressives, that won the house back for Democrats.

*shrug* So? That doesn't change my point that had 2018 been a Presidential election year, Trump would have lost. Republicans went all in on fear in 2018 and it didn't work. There is no reason to believe that doing so again in 2020 will be any more effective.
[quote]Spin it however you want, Democrats still lost seats in the Senate
I repeat: it was the most brutal Senate map in over a century, with Republicans gloating over the possibility of getting to 60 Senate seats. Democrats won seats they were "supposed" to have lost and held the damage to just two seats lost. That was a victory for them.

The Democrats should be thrilled to the point of orgasm. Democrats in DC and on DL should singing Trump's praises for this idea. They insist that illegal aliens are superior to native-born Americans in every conceivable way. According to the Democrats, illegal aliens and false asylum seekers are more law-abiding, better educated, more Christian, but also more gay friendly, more respectful of women, more compassionate towards children, better educated, take better care of the environment, and supportive of trans-gender bathroom rights. So this should be a demographic Christmas present for them.

Trump has claimed repeatedly that the asylum seekers are murderers and rapists--and he wants to send them to the cities that voted against him. Tells you all you need to know about Trump.
But the reality is that you could dump them all in Los Angeles and the city would barely notice. It would be more of an issue in SF because it's a much smaller city, but people would try to help and they'd end up in various areas around the Bay and out into the Central Valley. Honestly, it wouldn't be anything new, we have a huge number of foreign-born residents. The hipsters among us would start arguing over where to get the best Honduran food.
It might be a nuisance to deal with a large influx of people, but we Californians deal with that all the time--tech bros, Mexicans, Okies and Arkies--there's nothing special, in that way, about asylum seekers.
And that's what Trump and his scaredy-cat acolytes don't get. The rest of us aren't so fucking frightened of people with accents. (Honestly, rich Chinese driving up real-estate prices is a much bigger problem than some poor Hondurans would be.)

Even the anchors in Fox News says Trump can't just order people to dump immigrants in the Sanctuary Cities. It's against the law, there would also be financial costs of the transportation and the government would be legally responsible to these people if a mishap happened (like an accident, etc).
They said Trump was threatening this last year and it didn't happen, he's only boasting to rile up his base.

But, outside of the impossible logistics, and Donnie Dump trying to score political points with his base, why is this considered outrageous? Denizens of sanctuary cities don't believe that these asylum seekers/migrants are murderers and rapists, in fact, they have welcomed migrants to the US, and have made that clear by allowing their lawmakers to make their city a sanctuary city.
If they're the ones who are fine with welcoming migrants, while other cities are not, why not have the cities who want migrants be the cities who get them? I'm not getting it.

IMO, Sanctuary cities are those cities that already have immigrants and refuse to cooperate with the ICE. The problem with Trump's proposal is that he would be mean-spirited enough to drop off criminals and not bear any costs. However, he can't do that, it's against the law.

[quote] House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says rounding up immigrants and shipping them to sanctuary cities is “disrespectful” to the nation’s challenges. The California Democrat was asked Friday for her thoughts on reports that the White House had considered sending immigrants to places like New York and Pelosi’s San Francisco that don’t cooperate with federal immigration officials. Pelosi says the idea is “just another notion that is unworthy of the president of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges we face.” Three people familiar with the idea said Friday that the White House considered a plan to release detained immigrants into sanctuary cities, a plan that critics branded as an effort to use migrants as pawns to go after political opponents. The people say Department of Homeland Security lawyers quickly rejected the proposal and it was dropped. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Deputy Director Matt Albence denies the White House pressured immigration officials to implement the idea.

They'll increase class sizes in public schools, for one thing. They're also entitled to most other state public benefits. These would be documented asylum seekers, so they get all the free shit since alienage is a suspect clarification subject to strict scrutiny.
They'll also need affordable housing, and there's already limited housing stock in many cities, since everyone is all about historical preservation and NIMBYism. So rents might be affected.

R134, technically it's not illegal immigration, because these are people awaiting asylum application hearings that are at least a year away. If they skip their hearing dates and stay in the US, then they're illegal immigrants.
But yeah,, Dems have an immigration policy problem. Basically, they can't come out and say it, but most Dems are almost completely opposed to deporting anyone who's in the country illegally who hasn't committed a crime apart from illegally entering the country (which they want downgraded to a civil infraction as well). It's de facto open borders to all generally law-abiding people.
If you're a Dem who opposes that, don't tell anyone if you don't want to be yelled at for being racist.

Many immigrants don't come to the US to be "servants" and "farm workers". They could be that anywhere else. They came to set up their own $$$ small businesses (both legal and illegal ones). I live in London and many immigrants, especially from Africa and the Caribbean, go into the "cell phone and gadget re-sale business" or selling "tourist souvenirs".

Quite many immigrants who are already living in East London are not too pleased by more immigrants arriving there.

If you place migrants in NYC or California - most would probably not move for a long time. Because those places are most foreigners' dream. Most didn't come to the US to live in North Dakota or Kentucky. They're inspired by Hollywood films about success and wealth - and most of those films pitch specifically NYC and Cali as the ultimate spots for getting rich in the States.
They might move out 10 years later, when they realise how overrated NY and Cali are. But for their first years, I'm sure many will stick around and try to 'make it big', just like in the movies.

They also gravitate toward cities because they won't require a car to get around. Everything they need is a short walk or bus/tube ride away. Thus they won't have to figure out how to get a driver's licence and car insurance which are only supposed to be for those here legally. Plus it's much easier to blend in when you're not the only dark-skinned person in sight. Cities offer you anonymity which is a blessing when you're trying to not stand out.

R209, we already have a lot of people here in California. We also have a homeless problem, some of the Red States send their homeless here too. Is this your solution? To use these people as political pawns to punish others that don't agree with you?
What is with all these people here wanting to punish the Blue States by dumping a bunch of illegals on us? This cost more than building his precious wall. Is he going to use the Army to bus these people and assist them to where they're being dumped? That's another useless cost for the Army.
This man is such a hateful prick. He wants to punish anyone who disagrees with him, like he has tried to abolish ObamaCare simply because he hates the man. And Trump also wants to separate the families once again and put the children in cages. How inhumane is this man and the people who support him are going to get?

Dumping unscreened refugees is going to backfire. This is the guy who is yelling and screaming every time an illegal commits a crime, that every single illegal is a monster that’s going to be serial-killing his way through America. He says Mexico deliberately sends us criminals to get rid of them.
So he sends some unscreened refugees to SF and they start killing people. I guess his followers say, good, I hate liberals, I hope they kill the whole city. But for the non-followers, watching a weeping mom on tv saying, Trump, why did you kill my baby, is not going to play well.

I was, very recently, in a sanctuary city, one that I had lived in for years. It felt like I was in a Developing World country, and I have been to many countries in the Developing World.
So many people, so much trash, bumper-to-bumper traffic, old clunkers, homeless villages made out of plastic tarps and trash bags on the side of the freeway. I could have been in Mumbai.
And the vacancy rate in this city is about 2%, with sky-high rents even in the most dangerous areas, so where do poor Americans go? It does breed resentment among the people who have to deal with immigration the most, the American poor and working-class, which is why, completely against their own interests, they go for President Bozo.
Neither party has our back: the GOP rail about immigration for their base, but secretly love the endless supply of cheap labor. The Democrats have this mistaken belief that immigrants are going to be their coming voter base, but many immigrants are socially conservative and are opposed to high taxes, so they are ripe to fall for the Reagan welfare mother meme.
I agree with others on here that many Progressives I know are fed up too, even though they don't feel the effects as much as the working poor, but are too scared to say something because "Racist."

I'm a native of California.
My family came here from Ohio between 1905 and 1919. In those years the population was less than 2 million.
When I was born in 1950 the population was 10.5 million
When I graduated from college in 1972 the population was 20 million.
Now the state population is about 40 million.
During those years the population increased for many reasons: People have come here from all around the US People legally immigrate to CA from almost every country on earth Illegal immigrants come here around the world, most are Asian or Hispanic For the most part we are an inclusive population that embraces diversity and respects human rights
We have the world's 5th largest economy and have absorbed immigrants from around the globe, legal and illegal, into our communities and we've contributed incredible innovation to technology and culture.
trump is an idiot. He wants to dump immigrants to punish the left. So, dump them here, trump. They'll find a way to survive. And as someone said recently, states, cities and towns do not have walls. You'll just make it easier for them to stay in the US because once you've dumped them somewhere they can go where they want (even DC) and it will be difficult to deport them.
And it's true, illegals commit less crime. They want to stay under the radar while they work hard and catch up. My nephew in law enforcement says he mainly arrests legal white people who are doing stupid things on drugs.

To those who support Trump's plan to dump them in the Sanctuary cities, I doubt immigrants want to live in San Francisco or these cities which have a high cost of living. They can easily move to someplace where it is cheaper to live.
So to all those who want to dump them in the Sanctuary cities, fine. But now they are free to move around the country and we can give them free bus tickets to where you live.

This business where Trump has declared war on Americans is the strangest thing going. He related a tax increase that hit people in CA, NY, MA, CT, NJ, etc.
Now he’s trying to use immigrants to hurt liberals in those states, who refuse to be hurt by the proposal, while being repulsed by the illegality and spitefulness behind it.
Obama and the Clintons were President (or candidate) for all Americans.

Let’s not forget how that started. Trump initially planned a 90-day Muslim ban while they figured out “what the hell is going on”. He was supposed to order some intelligence work during the 90-day period. The ban took more than 90 days to implement. That means his research should have been completed. The ban no longer had a purpose, unless his research results could justify a longer ban. But Trump never actually ordered that research be conducted. It was all fascist bullshit.

When Obama Had “Total Control of Congress”
"But legislation does not become law without the Senate.
The Senate operates with the 60-vote-requirement filibuster rule. There are 100 Senate seats, and it takes 60 Senate votes for “closure” on a piece of legislation....to bring that piece of legislation to the floor of the Senate for amendments and a final vote....that final vote is decided by a simple majority in most cases. But it takes 60 Senate votes to even have a chance of being voted upon.
“Total control”, then, of the Senate requires 60 Democratic or Republican Senators.
On January 20th, 2009, 57 Senate seats were held by Democrats with 2 Independents (Bernie Sanders and Joe Lieberman) caucusing with the Democrats...which gave Democrats 59 mostly-reliable Democratic votes in the Senate, one shy of filibuster-proof “total control.” Republicans held 41 seats."

Probably 80% of the food Americans shovel in their mouths on a daily basis has been processed in some way by an illegal immigrant. And so on. And the wealth they are generating for CORPORATE giants is staggering, because of the wage differential. The Hypocrisy is staggering. But NO POLITICIAN is going to admit this. NO. So we have this Pomp and Circumstance showdown at the border, and pretend that it's in defense of the American worker who would never deign to work at that wage to begin with even if they took that shitty job.

R118: I moved from Providence, RI to the Atlanta area. The former was in fact a sanctuary city.

Hey R399, like many in my generation, I remember when Americans did the jobs Americans won't do.
In fact, it was standard for American kids to do some of those jobs: gardener, child/elder care, fast food, maid, produce picker, cashier, stock clerk, janitor - my friends and I, and most American kids, did all of those jobs. I would not have made it through college without some of those jobs. And we did those jobs well.
Corporations don't want to pay a living wage, and they don't want to hire American kids, because they have some awareness of the law, so won't take shit.
The Democrats used to be against illegal immigration because it drove down wages. Well, they're on the take now too, and they have 3/4 of the children on this board snowed and all it took was the liberal (pardon the pun) use of the word "Racist" for corporations to get exactly what they wanted: an unlimited supply of cheap, expendable labor.

[quote] R41: Don't you just love how the sole purpose of the right wing these days is to "stick it to the libs?" The hell with actually governing, coming up with a coherent policy, executing on a rational strategy, hiring competent people. Nope, as long as it pisses off the libs, it's full speed ahead. And if it does piss off the libs, then mission accomplished, even if they managed to completely fuck themselves over or it's blatantly illegal.
Really well said. I was reading through the first many posts and saw so much self-defeating mean spiritedness I just don’t know what makes people so vile. I do know these haters watch Fox, and support Trump, and Fox and Trump encourage the worst impulses in them. It’s really sad.

They still are. The Dems are for “safe and secure” borders. Nancy wanted funding for it, but Trump refused, because he wanted an expensive, ineffective wall. In the future, just trust that the Right is lying to you. It’s what they do, it’s their brand. Don’t be surprised that Trump is conning you. Because that is all he know how to do.

R413 What's sad is that you can't offer an opinion, except that everyone in the country who watches Fox is "sad." Since that audience is a much larger proportion of the population than those who watch any other news, that means you think the majority of people in this country are sad. And as a person who doesn't watch ANY TV news, that seems sad to me.

R416, apparently math is not your strong suit, and that is sad. But congratulations for not watching any TV news, you get a gold star for that and an attaboy.
