President Trump has announced that he is planning on dumping thousands of illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities because he’s getting no help from the Left regarding the growing crisis at the southern border.
This move by the President has been met with backlash from the Left, which is ironic considering they have been the ones who have been pushing for open borders and sanctuary cities. He’s basically giving them what they asked for.
In response, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio vowed on Monday to fight this decision by Trump in court. Keep in mind that New York is a sanctuary city.
“It’s illegal. It is just plain illegal. We will meet him in court. We will beat him in court,” de Blasio said.
“I remember vividly the day the Trump administration, when he said he was going to cut our security funding because we did not ask for documentation status, because we would not cooperate with everything ICE was doing,” he noted. “We said we would go to court to stop it and we did.”
This is an interesting statement considering de Blasio is the one who announced his city is a sanctuary city and the President is simply giving the New York mayor what he asked for.
This statement from de Blasio comes just days after President Trump took to Twitter and said, “Those Illegal Immigrants who can no longer be legally held (Congress must fix the laws and loopholes) will be, subject to Homeland Security, given to Sanctuary Cities and States!”
De Blasio isn’t the only hypocritical Democrat who is enraged by the President’s decision.
On Sunday, Cory Booker accidentally agreed with President Trump by claiming that releasing large numbers of illegal aliens into cities would “make us less safe.”
Oh really? Isn’t that what President Trump has been saying for three years while Democrats encourage illegal immigration and open borders?

This accidental admission by Booker proves that he does in fact agree with President Trump that illegal immigration is dangerous to the American people.
He just will never purposely admit it because he cares more about opposing President Trump than keeping the American people safe.
In a Saturday night tweet, President Trump doubled down on the rumors that he was going to drop off illegal aliens in Sanctuary Cities and announced that he has total legal authority to send illegal aliens into sanctuary cities, specifically California.
“Just out: The USA has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities. We hereby demand that they be taken care of at the highest level, especially by the State of California, which is well known or its poor management & high taxes!” President Trump said in a tweet.
Why are the Democrats upset by this move? They’ve made it seem like they love illegal immigrants so much which is why they are providing them with sanctuary cities.
But now that Trump wants to give them what they want, they suddenly don’t care anymore about the illegals.
It’s as if this whole time they’ve only been promoting illegal immigration just in an attempt to get back at the President. Unbelievable!
