President may send migrants to sanctuary cities

Local News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – President Trump says he can send “an unlimited supply” of migrants from the border to so called sanctuary cities. Unless democrats agree to his immigration policies, like the border wall. 

He says he wants to send immigrants to places like Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco. 

Sanctuary cities have chosen not to cooperate with immigration officials, to arrest and deport undocumented immigrants. 

Democrats say instead of making threats, President Trump should work with them to fix America’s immigration laws. 

“The idea that the administration thought in any way that it would be acceptable to use families and children, human beings, as political retribution against their enemies should infuriate every American.” Says Libby Schaaf, Oakland Mayor. 

The Washington Post reports the White House has been talking about sending undocumented migrants to sanctuary cities since November. But immigration officials have refused to go along.
