    Trump, again, says illegal immigrants will be 'given' to sanctuary cities, states
    .
    President Trump on Monday announced illegal immigrants will be “given” to Sanctuary Cities and States, pending official decisions from the Department of Homeland Security.
    .
    “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!” Trump tweeted Monday.
    .

    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!
    .
    The president’s announcement comes after reports revealed last week that the administration had floated releasing detained immigrants into sanctuary cities twice over the last six months.
    .
    Last week, Trump all but confirmed the reports and stated that the administration was still "giving strong considerations" to the measure. His Monday tweet seemingly signaled the administration would adopt the policy.
    .
    The proposal was apparently rejected both times it came up--in November and in February-- by administration immigration agencies. It is unclear, at this point, whether immigration agencies would now support the proposal with new leadership in place.
    .
    A spokesperson for DHS did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
    .
    The president's new plan comes amid a shake-up at the Department of Homeland Security. Last week, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned, and the president replaced her with Kevin McAleenan as acting DHS secretary, who was serving as Customs and Border Protection commissioner.
    .
    Nielsen’s resignation last Sunday came amid an influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Nielsen was reportedly frustrated with the difficulty of getting other departments to help deal with the growing number of families crossing the border. But administration officials told Fox News that McAleenan best fits Trump’s requirement of being the “toughest cop” on the frontier and that Nielsen had been viewed as resistant to some of the immigration measures pushed by the president and his aides.
    .
    Also last week, Randolph "Tex" Alles, stepped down from his post as head of the Secret Service; DHS Acting Deputy Secretary Claire Grady also resigned; and last Wednesday, Nielsen announced that ICE Acting Director Ron Vitiello would be stepping down by the end of the week.

    HOUSE DEMOCRATS DEMAND DOCS ON TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S 'BIZARRE AND UNLAWFUL' PROPOSAL TO RELEASE MIGRANTS IN SANCTUARY CITIES
    .
    The proposal, first reported by The Washington Post, was seen as a political move by the president, who has repeatedly blasted sanctuary cities, which are cities, typically run by Democrats, where local authorities refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agencies.
    .
    “Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump tweeted last week, suggesting that “the Radical Left” should be “happy” with the idea.
    .
    Democrats fumed over the proposal last week, and on Monday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.; House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., penned a letter to DHS and the White House Monday requesting emails, and other communications between administration officials related to the proposal.
    .
    “We are deeply troubled by multiple reports, recently confirmed by the President, that the Trump Administration is considering releasing detained immigrants into congressional districts represented by Democrats in a bizarre and unlawful attempt to score political points,” the chairmen wrote.
    .
    “Not only does the Administration lack the legal authority to transfer detainees in this manner, it is shocking that the President and senior Administration officials are even considering manipulating release decisions for purely political reasons,” they continued.

    TRUMP DOUBLES DOWN ON PLAN TO SHIP MIGRANTS TO SANCTUARY CITIES, SAYS 'RADICAL LEFT' SHOULD BE 'HAPPY'
    .
    Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office released a statement blasting the idea. Pelosi’s, D-Calif., district—San Francisco, specifically—was among the sanctuary cities to which the administration was considering sending detainees.
    .
    “The extent of this Administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” Pelosi’s spokeswoman Ashley Etienne said in a statement Friday. “Using human beings—including little children—as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal.”
    .
    She added: “The American people have resoundingly rejected this Administration’s toxic anti-immigrant policies, and Democrats will continue to advance immigration policies that keep us safe and honor our values.”

    My Thoughts:
    .
    So what's the difference, all along the Democrats have held that sanctuary cities and state’s welcomed these immigrants with open arms, so what gives now. The cities where they are currently taken over the past few years just can't handle it anymore; it's time to spread the wealth, so to speak.
    .
    Also, those cities that have been taking them never had any say so as to them being taken there.
    .
    As far as busing them to other cities, under Obama’s Admin, they have been bussed as far as Ohio, Maine, Maryland and other northern states. So the idea that busing them now to sanctuary cities isn’t a crime as the Democrats want you to believe.

    Case in point
    .
    Office of Refugee and Resettlement Places 234,414 Migrant ‘Children’ in All 50 States
    .
    Statistics from the federal government show the fate of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant ‘children’ who have come across the border with Mexico illegally or to seek asylum.
    .
    The Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) has relocated 234,414 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) to all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from 2014 to the first five months of the fiscal year 2019 (October 2018 to February 2019)
    .
    The majority of the UAC are males (71 percent in 2018) between the ages of 15 and 17, and most are from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, according to ORR.
    .
    The leftist media, however, is not reporting these facts while criticizing President Donald Trump’s suggestion that rather than saddling border cities with the crushing flow of illegal immigrants some could be transported to other places in the United States, including so-called “sanctuary cities” established to protect illegals from deportation.
    .
    The Washingon Post reported:
    .
    Should President Trump follow through on a proposal to release migrants in U.S. “sanctuary cities,” it would be a major departure from the way federal agencies are handling detainees. It could also be prohibitively costly and make it more difficult to deport migrants once they reach those cities.
    .
    The plan — which Trump tweeted Friday is under “strong consideration” — would have the Department of Homeland Security moving migrants from detention centers to cities scattered across the country in vans, buses, and airplanes. It would require a massive investment in transportation infrastructure, something that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials told the White House would be “an unnecessary operational burden.”
    .
    It also would mean placing those detainees in cities that limit their cooperation with federal immigration enforcement, meaning it could be very difficult to arrest them again.
    .
    The ORR website explains its operations this way:
    .
    When a child who is not accompanied by a parent or legal guardian is apprehended by immigration authorities, the child is transferred to the care and custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). Federal law requires that ORR feed, shelter, and provide medical care for unaccompanied alien children until it is able to release them to safe settings with sponsors (usually family members), while they await immigration proceedings. These sponsors live in many states.
    .
    The actual numbers for each year are 2014 — 53,515; 2015 — 27,840; 2016 — 52,147; 2017 — 42,497; 2018 — 34,815; for a total of 234,414 UACs send around the country and its territories. The ORR website it shows how UACs are sent to every state, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories. In 2019 so far, Texas, California, and Florida have received the most migrants — 2,992, 2,812 and 2,765 respectively.
    .
    As Breitbart News reported, the number of “children” coming to the U.S. illegally is connected to lax immigration law that enables human trafficking:
    .
    Since 2016, cartel-affiliated coyotes have used the nation’s lax asylum laws to deliver more than 110,000 children and youths from Central America to the United States. The government-aided business has been hidden by media and by Democrats who portray the expensively smuggled young migrants as “Unaccompanied Alien Children.”

    So don’t try and tell me what the Democrats are trying to push, they have been sending them all over the country for a long time now.

    DOES TRUMP HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO SEND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO SANCTUARY CITIES?
    .
    President Donald Trump is toying with the idea of releasing detained illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities, a policy that would certainly face legal challenges if it were to come to fruition.
    .
    Reports last week claimed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) pushed back on the White House’s idea to transport illegal immigrants to liberal enclaves that provide certain protections for illegal immigrants accused of committing a crime. However, Trump has continued to push the idea as a potential solution to “catch and release” policies that force immigration officials to release illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States.
    .

    .
    Immigration hardliners believe Democrats who are angry with the president’s proposed plan are displaying hypocrisy by being unwilling to take in the very illegal immigrants they claim to want to protect. However, as political implications emerge, the logistics and legalities of such a program are less clear.
    .
    Perhaps the biggest legal challenge facing the administration is determining how to get funding for the transportation of the immigrants. The White House would not be able to reallocate Department of Homeland Security (DHS) dollars that are already appropriated for other purposes.
    .
    “My understanding is that it is not legal,” Democratic Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin told Fox News on Sunday. “This is clearly a political move for the president. He is using the immigrants as pawns in a political game of chess.”
    .
    National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told The Daily Caller that there is “nothing in law that says where we have to release [illegal immigrants],” but noted that funding “could be a problem.”
    .
    However, Judd expressed support for the idea, telling Fox News, “If he’s doing it for political reasons, this is brilliant. These people have to be released for one reason or another. And if we’re going to have to release them, why not show the sanctuary cities the same pressure that other cities are feeling.”
    .
    Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan similarly expressed concerns about the legal ability to garner funds for Trump’s plan, but explained that currently, border states are almost solely having to shoulder the burden of taking in released illegal immigrants. Morgan also suggested that illegal immigrants would embrace the move, telling the Caller, “[sanctuary cities] are where many want to end up anyway … they want the protection and know it.”
    .
    While funding remains an issue, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova agreed with Judd’s assessment that the administration can resettle immigrants wherever they choose. He pointed to the refugee resettlement programs under the Obama administration, including a secret deal with Australia wherein refugees were reportedly taken in by Arizona, Texas, California, Oregon and New York.
    .
    Former Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal claimed in 2015 that he was not informed that refugees were being resettled in his state as the Obama administration announced plans to take in another 10,000 Syrian refugees.
    .
    “Under the Obama administration, these same groups of people with the same legal status were sent to cities and states secretly without notifying those states and cities through the Obama administration working with NGOs,” diGenova said. “And if the states tried to find out where they were being sent they were told, ‘you’re not allowed to know.'”
    .
    “That’s the precedent. They did it, and they did it without telling people. At least the president is being honest about it,” diGenova added.
    .
    Sanctuary cities do not require local police to honor detainment requests by ICE, meaning illegal immigrants who are charged with a crime can be released from prison instead of being held for deportation. Some sanctuary cities also do not share the immigration status of those charged with crimes with federal authorities.

    The president has repeatedly called out sanctuary cities for harboring criminal illegal immigrants and has attempted to deny them federal funding.

    As soon as the Democrats can make up their minds whether or not that they want the immigrants, maybe they will get their sh!t together. But I won’t hold my breath for that ratification from them.
