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.

The article goes on to state the following:

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.

The ACLU and countless liberals have slammed the idea, some calling it “insane.”

    The media can’t pay themselves on the back hard enough about this story. They think it makes the President look like a bad guy. I don’t think his back would agree. If he was to do this I think the media would stop there patting and start scratching there heads on what to do about all these cities who now are upset over what is happening. If they have to relocate some of these illegals I think democrat strong holds are where they would be welcome with open arms. LOL

    Good idea


  5. Rootietoot April 11th, 2019 at 11:57 pm

    Hell they love the illegals, do it😂😂🇺🇸🇺🇸

    I fail to see why Peloser or any other government employee that supports “Sanctuary Cities” should object to the idea of those illegals being protected in their district which boasts how it welcomes those immigrants!!! Why wouldn’t those immigrant supporting liberals be happy to have their future voters bussed into their districts, if they honestly supported them!!!!


  7. Molly B. April 12th, 2019 at 1:03 am

    BTW: I completely agree with and support this plan of action and feel the BPA should do exactly that!!! Instead of ratting the POTUS out for his recommendation!!!

    It won’t be so great for the American citizens who live in these sanctuary cities. More crime coming our way.


  9. Suzanne April 12th, 2019 at 2:15 am

    They are not okay with this plan? Yet they are okay with it as long as their city isn’t targeted? What hypocrites.


  10. Lynn elizabeth April 12th, 2019 at 6:41 am

    It is a great idea! What is the problem the Dems have with this? Sanctuary cities welcome illegals and provide a safe haven. They would be well taken care of. It boggles the mind, the outrage I am hearing about this brilliant solution to a major problem.


  11. Susan April 12th, 2019 at 7:54 am

    Well they have to be released somewhere. Why not the cities who have purposely abandoned the law to help illegal aliens? Seems like a good fit. By the way, when will these demonrats be indicted for aiding and abetting illegals? Also I think we need to see their tax returns and have their non-profit organizations investigated for pay to play pandering. If it’s good enough for them to use against our duly elected POTUS, then it’s good enough for them to submit to the same treatment. 2020 is coming and they will pull many more tricks to overthrow our votes. #MAGA

    The libs are angry, because it’s taking Demonratic votes out of Texas and Arizona.


  14. Richard April 12th, 2019 at 8:11 am

    You have my vote, they will be safe in sanctuary cities since they will be welcome with open arms.


  15. Yvonne April 12th, 2019 at 9:14 am

    🤣 A taste of their own medicine? Love it!


  16. Paul H April 12th, 2019 at 9:23 am

    Wow guys it is getting Petty out there isn’t it…. but it does prove a point.. it highlights the sanctuary cities/Leaders agenda and not actual compassion!


  17. Michele April 12th, 2019 at 10:00 am

    Why insane? They are the ones that want them!!


  18. Caridad Bailey April 12th, 2019 at 11:31 am

    What she wanted was for all of them to be released in Texas and other states where majority votes is republican. That what they where all hoping for. Sanctuary cities Take ur people, and provide for them


  19. Aurora Ankrum April 12th, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    Yes, do it! Why should NON-Sanctuary Cities/ States take them. It’ s only fair.


  20. Barbara April 12th, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    Typical libertards response. Not in my neighborhood. I think Pelosi should tear down her wall or fence and give up her government funded security.


  21. Guest1900 April 12th, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    Print flyers and give them to all illegals stating free food, free housing, and free medical care available at Pelosi’s: 11 Zinfandel Lane, St. Helena, CA
    Then watch as she has them arrested and deported!
