Trump: I'll Send Migrants to Sanctuary Cities 😝

Everyone is outraged, but I'm sorry, that's kind of brilliant trolling. 🤣

Stephen Miller's idea. He's one clever fucking Nazi troll.

Trump Says He Is Considering Releasing Migrants in ‘Sanctuary Cities’

One high-profile sanctuary city, which limits how local law enforcement agencies cooperate with federal immigration officers, is San Francisco. It happens to be the home of Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

by Anonymousreply 7204/15/2019

I really actually would like to see what happens.

Probably they'll provide a long-term economic boost to those cities.

Stephen Miller Proposed Releasing Detained Migrants in Pelosi’s District

Miller reportedly wanted to flood sanctuary cities with undocumented immigrants. ICE officials were not amused.

Trump is right. These cities care about migrants, then they should care FOR migrants.

What incentive do the cities have to supervise the migrants. They can just give them bus tickets anywhere they want. A mean idea that doesn't even make ssnse following Trump's stupid logic.

It's tempting to allow this to happen. Becquse the result would be the exact opposite of what Trump want.

by Anonymousreply 604/13/2019

R6, they're not going to give them bus tickets out of their sanctuary cities because their constituents would be up in arms at such a "racist" policy.

by Anonymousreply 704/13/2019

r6 I'd assume the bright lights of the sanctuary cities are where the immigrants are heading for anyway. It's not the 19th century they weren't planning to become rural homesteaders.

So, does the US grant asylum to everyone now? Serious question. There's no way all applications can be accepted.

by Anonymousreply 1104/13/2019

R11, the asylum process is kind of bullshit now. Every community has immigration lawyers who coach clients about what to say at their hearings, and immigration court judges are generally pretty lenient. Also, the meaning of asylum in US immigration law has greatly expanded from the original state persecution basis. Now it includes private harms like the danger of gang violence, and abusive spouses.

Keep reading up on this and you'll likely conclude that serious changes are needed in our asylun laws, regulations, and policies.

They'll stay in cities if there's security, community, and economic opportunity — i.e., most large sanctuary cities.

by Anonymousreply 1804/13/2019

Asylum seekers are not illegal. They are not migrants.

They enter and are detained under US law while their cases are vetted and adjudicated.

Trump has destroyed the enter, detain, and vet part. He has destroyed the system.

This is an artificial crisis trump has created to distract from the fact the oversight committee has subpoenaed 10 years of financial records from his accounting firm.

by Anonymousreply 1904/13/2019

Why is it trolling?

If a city expresses willingness to take in “asylum seekers”, isn’t it just a logical solution? And why burden a city that’s unwilling?

I live in NYC, which has always been a sanctuary city, like it or not. My father was an immigrant who loved this country; if not for immigrants I wouldn’t be here.

by Anonymousreply 2004/13/2019

They are not "asylum seekers".

They are not "migrants".

And considering what they pay traffickers, they are certainly not poor.

They are economic invaders. Looking for an easier life at someone else's expense.

The world has changed dramatically. So too must attitudes that are hopelessly at odds with the reality of the world we live in.

It's trolling because he anticipated the outrage the policy proposal would cause among those who'd be affected. Also it's trolling because of the way he framed it in his tweets.

The freak-out was out of all proportion for people who supposedly welcome these migrants. The "how dare you use them as political pawns" rhetoric is just pretense.

Sanctuary cities will welcome immigrants.

by Anonymousreply 2304/13/2019

for Trump fans: His whole thing was build a wall to keep migrants out. Now he wants to transport migrants across the US to big cities. How is that keeping migrants out of the US.? And there is absolutely no way to keep them in these cities. They can leave and go anywhere they want. So isn't this just a complete collapse of Trump's build the wall plan.

Cities should accept this plan and call his bluff.

Trump is playing the media like the proverbial fiddle. Notice that he makes the most outrageous tweets that he knows will never come to fruition and the media immediately hops on it. MSNBC and CNN spend hours condemning him and that policy. He gets the whole spotlight on him ( which is what he wants in the first place). Dem politicians end up screaming about him, thereby not having time to articulate their own ideas, just reactionary ones. And his followers are in the corner, laughing at the way their god can totally manipulate the liberals, who become obsessed with everything Trump. Time to formulate your policies and articulate them to the public, Dems. The reactionary campaign didn't work, and the media salivates with his every pronouncement.

by Anonymousreply 3604/13/2019

Trump, and the two or three imbeciles that have done the majority of the posting on this thread, are fools who don’t understand human nature. Do you think that most of these migrants know no one in the US? A single man, looking for work, very likely will go anywhere but a woman with children doesn’t just blindly go somewhere, anywhere. They likely all have a family member already living in the US to whom they are heading, regardless of where the government send them.

Oh, and OP, go fuck yourself. You look desperate posting so often to your own thread just so it won’t die. Effort wasted though since once America awakens this little exercise in trolling will be FFed to oblivion.

by Anonymousreply 3704/13/2019

I don't know if this is good. Germany had so many issues with accepting a large amount of migration in a short time. The New Years Eve rapefest is just one example. I have to admit that it's good trolling by Trump. Can't deny that.

R6 that's the bullshit you hear from the politicians and talking heads in media.

Irl? Sanctuary city or not, liberal city/state or not, no one is looking forward to an influx of hundreds of thousands. Where are you going to put them? How can already strained to the breaking point social services possibly cope? Especially when most major cities are already in a rapidly escalating homelessness crises?

Better believe panicked citizens from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boulder, Denver, to Cambridge and Boston, are blowing up the phones of their reps and senators. But you won't hear about that on the news...

[quote]But you won't hear about that on the news...

Much like no one heard about it on the news after the Muslim invasion of Western Europe. The media, the government and the police colluded to portray only very positive images of "migrants". Same will happen in the US.

r41 there are no panicked citizens, because the majority know the truth: the migrants aren't settling in their suburb or gated community. They don't just go to a big city, they go to specific areas in that city that aren't middle/upper middle class. (In Toronto, they go to specific buildings-no joke.)

The people who are adversely affected are other ethnic people (native born or landed, legal immigrants), and middle class/poor Caucasians. Well-off people don't realize what daily life is like in these areas with a huge influx. It's a struggle for resources and space.

The coddled campus contingent of SJWs, who have no life experience, focus on the extreme racists and ignore everything else. Because many "journalists" are either social activists or lazy, they troll SM for their stories and research, and the SJW squeaky wheel gets the most press.

Believe it or not, that is only a small % of the people who disagree with lax border control. Most people have a live and let live attitude regardless. They still don't want the Chicano marrying their daughter, but they don't care if the family next door is legal. It's when the social safety net is swamped, imported cultural practices like honour killing start happening, etc. that people get upset.

The media focuses on the racist element because it pushes their narrative, but I guarantee you if their own 10% constituency had these people swamping their communities in the same way, that angle would go out the window.

If robots are replacing unskilled laborers, where will many of these migrants work? Do they still find it easy to find work?

by Anonymousreply 4704/13/2019

Even poor Americans won't pick crops, and I'm guessing farm work is already about as mechanized as it can affordably be, so they'll still need low-wage workers to do the basic grunt work. Automation is going to be replacing higher skilled workers in the coming decades.

Legal or illegal, R20? I ask because I'm shocked at how many on the left today are unwilling (or incapable) of differentiating between the two. Big difference.

Few people have an issue with legal (i.e. vetted) immigration. It's illegal (i.e. non-vetted) immigration that concerns people and rightly so. You wouldn't move someone you knew nothing about into your home would you?

It’s you who is the fool, Tony @ R47. Most new immigrants gravitate towards big cities anyway where the $$ possibilities are. That’s why they came to the US - not to “hang out” with their distant relatives, but to make money. E.g. if the existing relatives moved out to suburbia - the new immigrants won’t just follow them out to suburbia.

As for women with kids - if they were left in a situation that necessitated asylum, you can bet they’d don’t have a family that cares a zitch about them. What, the family all emigrated and abandoned the single mom to her own devices? Those women usually don’t have anyone.

R36 makes a good point.

We spend too much time reacting and lashing out at Trump every time he does something outrageous.

The Dems need to pick a nominee and a set of policies and ideas that resonate with ordinary voters that can beat Trump and win the next election.

If every day becomes about talking about how terrible Trump is instead of presenting a contrasting set of policies that appeal to people, he may win again.

by Anonymousreply 6104/13/2019

I really think this is a win-win for everyone.

The immigrants get to stay in the US, which is what the immigrants want.

The Sanctuary cities get to welcome them all in and pay for their education and healthcare, which is what those cities want.

And the red states get to keep them out, which is what thisebstates want.

And Trump gets to say he found a solution to the border crisis, which is what he wants.

So what Trump is really doing is fully opening the border. The one good thing is America will turn brown faster with this plan and render the cult obsolete.

Trump is hoping the sanctuary cities will be overwhelmed if they get flooded with migrants... and will then ask for the borders to be secured and immigration reduced. It’s a good plan.

He’s kind of like Merkel. Except not inviting them in but, like Merkel, committed to having them settle somewhere once they cross. The cities will deal but the rurals are going to have a fit once they start moving around. One good benefit is Alabama and Georga will have more agri workers.
