NIMBY! Sanctuary Cities Don’t Want Illegal Immigrants

There is a definite crisis on our border. Even the New York Times fish wrap admitted there was a crisis. Meanwhile sanctuary cities have been taking care of and protecting illegal immigrants within the city borders and have enjoyed thumbing their noses at ICE and federal laws. Yet as soon as Trump floated the idea of sending illegals to sanctuary cities to alleviate the crush at the border, the immediate response was NIMBY!!

“President Trump said Friday his administration is “giving strong considerations” to a controversial plan that would release migrants into so-called sanctuary cities, even though officials said the idea was never seriously considered.”

I wonder who those anonymous officials are? But I digress. Sanctuary cities have been all about giving safe haven, no questions asked, to illegals. And in fact, giving them resources that should be going to American citizens. New York decided it could no longer fund college education for soldiers and their children, but magically found state funds, to the tune of $27 million, to help illegals get a college education.

So that means that states like Colorado (who just decided to expand the ability for illegals to get drivers licenses), New York, Washington, and California would welcome with open arms people who just crossed our borders illegally…right? WRONG. 

“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.

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.”

First of all, the sanctuary cities ARE Democrat-led. So for the WaPo to attempt to infer that there might be some Republican sanctuary cities is disingenuous. Secondly, it’s an idea that has merit except for the fact that there aren’t enough resources to get the illegals from the border to those cities.

HOWEVER, it’s an idea that really got the Democrats in a tizzy.

Nancy Pelosi wasn’t pleased. 

“Shortly before Trump tweeted, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blasted the proposal as “disrespectful” and “unworthy” of the presidency.

Pelosi told reporters at the House Democrats’ policy retreat in Virginia that she did not know anything about the White House’s internal deliberations, but said even raising the idea is “disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a county, as a people, to address who we are: a nation of immigrants.””

Nancy, let me explain something to you. We are certainly a nation of immigrants – LEGAL immigrants. We are also a nation of laws. Yet you are A-OK with illegal immigration until you figure out that it might impact your backyard. Then, all bets are off.

Everyone’s favorite uncharming actress chimed in:

But you are totally fine with shutting down a state because you’d rather babies get aborted at the drop of the hat. Yep, tell me again what is sick and twisted?

Kamala Harris decided to speak.

Kamala? You know what is reprehensible? Kate Steinle’s death at the hands of an illegal immigrant in YOUR state.

Adam Schiff shouldn’t have tweeted, but he did.

This from a guy who has spent the last 2+ years insisting in spite of all the evidence to the contrary that Trump colluded with Russia. But sure Schifty, tell us again about power corrupting people. Have you looked in a mirror lately??

We have a problem at our border, yet the Democrats virtue signal while the system implodes around them.

Yet, when presented with an idea that may help because they are such fans of sanctuary cities? The shrieks of NOT IN MY BACKYARD!!! were deafening.

Sanctuary cities are the hot trend only as long as they are politically convenient for the Democrats and only as long as those illegal immigrants cooling their heels on our border don’t come anywhere near their pristine utopias. NIMBY indeed.

    Why don’t Alyssa, Pelosi and Schiff volunteer to take a few into their homes? I’m sure they have some extra room.

    • GWB says:

      It’s never been about helping the poor, weary, frightened travellers.
      It has ALWAYS been about drowning out the middle class so they can rule absolutely as the technocrats they believe they are.
      They will gladly let a few into their homes – as maids, gardeners, you know, the common folk who do those sorts of things.

      • R Lindogan says:

        Pelosi, Schumer, Gillibrand, Omar, Alyssa, Tlalib, Ocasio-Cortez, Waters, Booker, Schiff and other die-hard, compulsive liars and very corrupt, liberals and socialists Democrats politicians should take 100 or more illegal immigrants to live in their mansions homes for their own benefits using them to vote for their re-election. All Democrats politicians should be responsible to fund all Sanctuaries Cities because they fought so hard protecting Sanctuaries Cities from abolishing for the benefits of millions of illegal immigrants. Tax payers money should not be spent for illegal immigrants’ medical care, housing, schooling for their childrens’ schooling.

      You sound like you think you are talking to someone (leftists) who gives a crap. The left talk the talk but will never walk the talk. They are the problem.

    • Jose Luis Vizcarra says:

      Do not ASK them, just drop them in their palaces. They have sufficient room to house a couple or more ILLEGALS to be taken care of!!! LEGALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT TRUMP IS A GENIUS! He MUST start training the NEXT PRESIDENT on how to beat the crap of every LIBERAL running for office.

  • BigGun says:

    Once again, a brilliant ploy by President Trump to bring to light the complete hypocrisy of the leftist anti-American/anti-constitutionalists!

  • GWB says:

    absolute power
    These people crack me up.

  • GWB says:

    Oh, and this:
    We have a problem at our border
    goes away if that old meany Trump just throws it open and lets any ol’ tired and huddled masses cross it. No border, no problem!
    (Of course, there will be walls around their compounds, to keep out the hoi polloi and the riff-raff. But that’s no problem for them.)

  • Berzrkr50 says:

    Do it anyway and say you aren’t. You know, like the Democraps would! Give them a taste of their own medicine…

  • Jim says:

    ”Using human beings — including children — for perceived political gain, is reprehensible.”

    What else was the witch-hunt aimed at young Nick Sandman but using a teenager for political gain?

  • Thomas says:

    This seems to be a very equitable plan to fairly distribute the economic and social burdens imposed on a few border states. Equity. Fairness. Who can be opposed to that ?

  • Jack Gardner says:

    We do not have to transport the migrants. Just tell them when they’re reliested after 20 days. That they have 30 days to reach a sanctuary city and stay there. Give them a list and a simple map. Then say that Ice will no longer bother them!
    Problem solved.

  • Scott says:

    You’re half right Nina, part of their aversion to this plan is definitely NIMBY… but the other part, and I believe it’s a bigger part is, if sanctuary cities, which as you point out are already heavily leftist, are flooded with illegals, it doesn’t change the electoral map at all (I know, I know, non-citizens can’t vote..bwhahaha.. I almost got that out with a straight face.. we know citizenship (or lack thereof ) is no impediment for voting D-Rat)… On the other hand, if this flood happens to find it’s way to an area that leans more red, they can quickly skew it purple, or even blue.. This is the real reason they are all in fr unrestricted illegal immigration.. Never forget that it’s an attempt to dilute our votes, and replace us with willing sheep.

  • bernie says:

    BooHoo. The huggy huggy open arms Dems wanted any illegals they could help get in. Now Pres.
    gave them exactly what they asked for and all hell is breaking loose. What a ship of fools the House of Rep. has become. 2020 Will be most interesting with half of them running for Pres. too yet.
