Trump Wanting To Send Illegals To Sanctuary Cities Is His Next Fight Against Urban Areas Or Something
Really, Trump threatening to send illegal aliens to sanctuary jurisdictions was initially just throwing food against the wall and seeing if it would stick. When told by ICE and DHS that it wasn’t a good idea due to the cost and time involved, Team Trump moved on. The the Washington Post published an article on it, and Trump and his team ran with it. Why? Because it drives Democrats nuts, exposes many as Open Borders advocates, and also highlights the hypocrisy of the illegal alien supporters who didn’t want the illegals sent to their towns.
But, hey, you know what it’s really about? Trump being mad at urban centers who didn’t vote for him, per Excitable Ronald Brownstein
President Donald Trump’s threats to relocate undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers to “sanctuary cities” capture his determination to constantly press the boundaries of law and morality with hardline immigration policies. But it may reveal even more about his political posture toward the nation’s biggest population centers.
n 2016, Trump lost the largest metropolitan counties by a bigger margin than any Republican presidential candidate in modern times. In 2018, House Republicans were routed in suburban districts not only in metropolitan areas already trending toward Democrat — such as the suburbs of Denver, Philadelphia, Seattle and northern Virginia — but also in places that had still leaned toward the GOP, including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Richmond and even Oklahoma City.
But rather than looking to rebuild bridges with these growing population centers, Trump appears determined to use them as a foil to energize his predominantly non-urban base.
“He wants to portray cities as alien to the two-car garage in Naperville,” outgoing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told me in an interview, referring to a suburb west of his city. “They want to make the soccer mom more scared.”
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan likewise wrote in the Washington Post last weekend: “So if this president wants to send immigrants and refugees to Seattle and other welcoming cities, let me be clear: We will do what we have always done, and we will be stronger for it.”
See? Orange Man Bad! Jenny Durkan, though, never expressly said that Trump should send illegal aliens to Seattle. Nor are any other mayors, or even Governors of sanctuary states like California, offering to actually take illegals.
And Orange Man wants to intentionally punish all those urban areas which didn’t vote for him by…..sending them the illegal aliens who Democrats say are awesome and great and contribute? If illegals are so super duper awesome, then how would sending them to these big cities which are sanctuaries be any sort of punishment?
