Donald Trump is about to slap Nancy Pelosi with a nasty surprise that she is going to hate
Nancy Pelosi thought she had the upper hand in the standoff over the crisis on the southern border.
The Speaker figured if Democrats just sat tight for long enough, the crisis would overwhelm the government and Donald Trump would be crippled by the failure heading into his re-election campaign.
But then Donald Trump announced a nasty surprise that Pelosi hated.
President Trump announced his administration was giving serious consideration to sending illegal aliens to sanctuary cities – most of which are represented by Democrats – instead of releasing migrants into border towns while they wait for their deportation hearing.
Trump tweeted, “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 The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”
Liberals were furious.
Nancy Pelosi fumed about the decision, ranting and raving that it was “unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a country, as a people, to address who we are — a nation of immigrants.”
Presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar wrote, “The President is literally using human beings as pawns in a political game. Instead of passing comprehensive immigration reform he does this: White House proposed releasing immigrant detainees in sanctuary cities, targeting political foes.”
Democrats often say that diversity and immigration are America’s strengths.
But when given the chance to take in illegal aliens to their communities, liberals recoiled in horror as they suddenly turned into hawks on the issue.
This episode illustrated one essential truth: liberals don’t want illegal aliens anywhere near their homes because they recognize the dangers that come with importing a large, impoverished population.
Democrats’ flowery rhetoric about immigration masks the fact that Democrats just want illegal aliens in this country to harvest their eventual votes once they get amnesty.
