Democrats love the idea of illegal aliens pouring into America — until they realized those migrants could be shipped to their districts.
During an interview on CBS’ “Face The Nation,” Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker admitted to host Margaret Brennan that Americans would be “less safe” if illegal aliens from detention centers were released into cities across the country.
Booker’s comments were in response to reports that President Donald Trump’s administration is considering releasing apprehended migrants into sanctuary cities that are controlled by liberal lawmakers.
“He’s trying to pit Americans against each other and make us less safe,” Booker said, referring to Trump. “If he was looking to solve a problem, he wouldn’t be doing things to divide this country against itself.”
“Beware of anybody that’s trying to tell you to be afraid in the strongest country in the world, as opposed to showing our strength and our courage by pulling people together to find common sense solutions to solve this problem,” he added.
Trump took to Twitter on Friday and said he was “giving strong considerations” to the idea of shipping detained migrants to sanctuary cities controlled by liberal lawmakers.
“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,”
He added in a second tweet: “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”
Democrats love the idea of allowing illegal aliens to pour into the U.S. — but they are changing their tune now that Trump may send them to their districts.
