Pelosi Fumes Over Trump Plan for Immigrant Detainees

The firing of Homeland Secretary Nielsen brought to light a proposed immigration plan by Trump that is not going over well with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Pelosi is reportedly fuming over Trump’s proposed plan to release illegal immigrant detainees inside of sanctuary cities, stating, “The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated.”

The Plan

While the plan has reportedly been scuttled, the original proposal was to release immigrant detainees into cities like San Francisco that are professed sanctuary cities.

When Pelosi found out her home state was on the docket to receive a slew of illegals, she called the plan “despicable.”

She stated that Trump was using the illegals as “pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal.”

We Beg to Differ

For years, Pelosi and Democrats have put illegals far ahead of Americans.

Border cities are being flooded and overwhelmed by the influx of illegals into their communities.

Even as the United States struggles with this problem, Democrats continue to say these illegals are innocents getting caught up.

Since a federal judge has ruled these illegals cannot be returned to Mexico, where else are they supposed to go?

The government cannot continue to release these individuals to border cities, so why not send them to states and cities that openly welcome illegals?

The funny thing here is that Pelosi and company have been using illegals as political pawns and a way to gain empathy within the Latino community and to win over bleeding heart liberals for years.

A second point is that if Pelosi and other liberals are going to welcome these illegals into our country, why would she be so upset about them coming into her community?

Wouldn’t it be better for the illegals if they went to welcoming communities and were dispersed around the country rather than saturating the border cities?

Regardless, the policy was discussed and dismissed by the administration after some debate.

This surely happens with dozens, if not hundreds, of policy ideas every year.

The White House responded to the story, stating, “This was just a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion.”

Matt Albence, Deputy ICE Director also chimed in, stating, “As the Acting Deputy, I was not pressured by anyone at the White House on the issue.

“I was asked my opinion and provided it and my advice was heeded.

“The email exchange is clear and suggesting that it indicated inappropriate pressure is inaccurate.”

This is once again more political theater and fake outrage over something that never actually happened.
