    Remember Murietta? Dumping unvetted migrants into the cities of political foes was done by Obama first

    April 13, 2019
    By Monica Showalter

    President Trump's trial balloon of sending migrants surging across our border to sanctuary cities has been derided by Democrats as 'cynicism and cruelty' as well as 'a new low' by Trump, but it has a precedent: President Obama.
    Back in 2014, when the migrant surge of that year brought tens of thousands of "unaccompanied children" and "moms and kids," into the Rio Grande Valley, overwhelming the Texas processing facilities, President Obama inexplicably targeted small and mid-sized cities (same as the Trump officials' emails) as their next destination of choice. And instead of talking about it, they really did try to bus the unvetted migrants into small cities such as Murietta, California; Yuma, Arizona; and a conservative area of New Mexico, bringing crime, disease, and a high need for social services, without consulting those communities.
    The residents protested, and the Obama administration declared them 'racist' in a bid to scare them into line.
    I was on the ground at Murietta during those protests when I was an editorial writer at Investor's Business Daily, and I spoke to the citizens of that city, who were not only far from racist, but actually multiracial themselves. They told me this:
    Asked why the rebellion was centered in Murrieta and not elsewhere, the residents all had one answer: they were Reagan Country, and it was on their soil that the Reagan revolution was lit in 1978.
    Breitbart's reporters went to the scene, too, as I did, and quite unlike the mainstream media, also asked and listened to the residents as to what they thought was going on:
    Henry, and many of the protesters joining him, believe their town was unfairly targeted as a destination for the migrants. Some believe the busloads are being sent to small, largely conservative towns, like Murrieta to send a political message.
    "The administration thinks that if it floods our streets, in small town america, they can force us into immigration reform," Henry said. "These immigrants should not be here. The only reason that they are coming here is for political reasons."
    There are no known FOIA documents to prove it (though it's a fine area for inquiry these days) that I have been able to find, but circumstantially, it appears to be a correct reading of the situation. The several hundred illegals being dumped off in Murietta were going to a small city with just five holding cells, given that it's a nearly crime-free city of homeowners. That's inexplicable, unless the idea was to unleash them onto the conservatives unvetted for other purposes.
    The Los Angeles Times reported that it made no sense to dump the migrants into Murietta, because the much larger metropolis of San Diego, sixty miles south, had plenty of beds and holding cells for illegal entrants, and ones that could cater to migrant families. The migrants eventually were sent there, but not before Democrats could demonize the town as brimming with racists, leaving its officials (Latino ones, no less) sputtering their defense that they were not.
    It's pretty obvious the whole thing was a political gambit to not only impose high costs from illegal migration on specially targeted conservative cities, its second aim was to force America's conservatives into submission out of fear of being called racists.
    They rebelled instead, in what was an early bellwether of the rise of President Trump. Now Trump is giving back what Obama pioneered — the use of illegal migrants as a political football — and this time putting Democrats on their back foot.

    The opposite of President Donald J. Trump’s plan is to release illegal immigrants into the states in which they cross, which mostly means Texas. Part of turning Texas blue is to eventually grant citizenship to illegals, which is why many Democrats want them released in Texas.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    No matter where illegal aliens are released most of them will be on a bus or plane within 48 hours to a location where they have relatives or friends living.

    House Democrats demand documents on Trump administration's 'bizarre and unlawful' proposal to release migrants in sanctuary cities

    By Brooke Singman | Fox News

    White House defends proposal to send migrant detainees to sanctuary cities

    House Democrats on Monday blasted the Trump administration over its “bizarre and unlawful” proposal to release immigrant detainees into sanctuary cities, and demanded documents from the White House and the Department of Homeland Security related to the floated policy.
    The Democrats also claimed that if it were enacted, it would be solely for “political purposes.”
    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.; House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md.; and House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., penned a letter to DHS and the White House Monday requesting emails, and other communications between administration officials related to the proposal.
    TRUMP DOUBLES DOWN ON PLAN TO SHIP MIGRANTS TO SANCTUARY CITIES, SAYS 'RADICAL LEFT' SHOULD BE HAPPY
    “We are deeply troubled by multiple reports, recently confirmed by the President, that the Trump Administration is considering releasing detained immigrants into congressional districts represented by Democrats in a bizarre and unlawful attempt to score political points,” the chairmen wrote.
    “Not only does the Administration lack the legal authority to transfer detainees in this manner, it is shocking that the President and senior Administration officials are even considering manipulating release decisions for purely political reasons,” they continued.
    The chairmen requested communications, emails, and other documents related to the transfer or release of immigrant detainees to specific areas in the U.S.; between DHS officials and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, and any other materials related to the proposed policy.
    The letter comes after President Trump responded to a Washington Post report last week, all but confirming that the administration proposed releasing detained immigrants in sanctuary cities. The president said that relocating illegal immigrants to these districts should make the “Radical Left” happy.
    His comments came after The Post reported that the White House proposed sending the detainees to sanctuary cities twice in the last six months. The proposal was first floated in November amid reports of a large migrant caravan from Central America making its way to the southern border. The idea was again considered in February, amid the standoff with Congress over a border wall.
    The Post said the plan was shot down both times, but last week, Trump signaled the proposal isn’t dead.
    “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,” Trump tweeted last week. “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy—so this should make them very happy!”
    Trump repeated the remarks later at the White House: "We can give them an unlimited supply...let’s see if they have open arms."
    The president doubled down as Democrats fumed over the relocation idea.
    “The extent of this Administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s spokeswoman Ashley Etienne said in a statement Friday. “Using human beings—including little children—as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal.”
    She added: “The American people have resoundingly rejected this Administration’s toxic anti-immigrant policies, and Democrats will continue to advance immigration policies that keep us safe and honor our values.”
    PELOSI FUMES OVER WHITE HOUSE PLAN TO RELEASE IMMIGRANT DETAINEES IN SANCTUARY CITIES
    Pelosi’s district—San Francisco—was among the sanctuary cities to which the administration considered sending detainees.
    White House officials, though, stressed earlier Friday that the plan never went anywhere. A source familiar with discussions told Fox News that Democrats who advocate leniency toward illegal immigrants should work with the administration to find ways to transport those set for release, including in their states and districts.
    The proposal was apparently rejected both times it came up by administration immigration agencies.
    It is unclear, at this point, whether immigration agencies would now support the proposal.
    Trump has repeatedly blasted sanctuary cities, which are areas where local authorities refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agencies. The cities are typically run by Democrats.
    The president was also hit last week with questions over the administration’s past family separation policy at the border. Trump said they have no plans to revive the policy, amid renewed speculation about whether the practice could return amid a shake-up in staffing at the Department of Homeland Security, including the resignation of Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
    WHITE HOUSE PROPOSED RELEASING IMMIGRANT DETAINEES INTO 'SANCTUARY CITIES' TO TARGET POLITICAL FOES: REPORT
    Kevin McAleenan, who was serving as CBP commissioner, is replacing her as acting secretary.
    Nielsen’s resignation last Sunday came amid an influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Nielsen was reportedly frustrated with the difficulty of getting other departments to help deal with the growing number of families crossing the border. But administration officials told Fox News that McAleenan best fits Trump’s requirement of being the “toughest cop” on the frontier and that Nielsen had been viewed as resistant to some of the immigration measures pushed by the president and his aides.
    By last Tuesday, DHS Acting Deputy Secretary Claire Grady also resigned.
    And last Wednesday, Nielsen announced that ICE Acting Director Ron Vitiello would be stepping down by the end of the week.
    Fox News' Kristin Brown, Matt Leach, and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
