What if someone you hated offered to pay off your mortgage or put your kids through college? Youd be suspicious at first, of course. Why is an enemy giving you the gift of a lifetime? But in the end, if you were smart, youd take it. It would be too good to pass up.
Something very much like that happened in Washington, D.C., recently. The Trump administration debated moving some of the thousands of migrants now massing through our southern border into various self-proclaimed sanctuary cities across the United States.
Talk about great news for blue America. The left tells us that all immigration is good. More immigration is better. There is no distinction between legal and illegal varieties of immigration. If you disagree with any of this, youre a white nationalist. Thats what theyve said almost every day for the last two years.
And now, completely out of the blue, comes the man they despise most in the world, Donald J. Trump, offering them what they want more than anything: more immigrants, immediately, delivered right to their door at federal expense. It must have been like Christmas morning.

But thats not how they responded. The left wasnt happy about Trumps offer. They were shocked and enraged. You know what this is, they said? Its dumping. The headline on Mother Jones read, “Donald Trump Wanted to Dump Asylum Seekers on Streets of Democratic Cities.” In the view of The Daily Beasts Harry Siegel, “The White House wanted to dump refugees in sanctuary cities.” He called that idea “nasty.” At the same time, almost simultaneously, both CNN and MSNBC ran headlines accusing the White House of wanting to “dump” migrants into cities.
NASHVILLE, TN – MAY 31: Immigrant families and activists march during a rally outside the Tennessee State Capitol against HB 2315, a bill recently passed as law that will prohibit sanctuary city policies in the state, May 31, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee. The legislation, which will take effect at the beginning of 2019, will require local law enforcement to comply with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requests to hold immigrants for purposes of deportation (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)
Whats the message here? Immigrants are trash? If you wanted to defile someones pristine city, youd “dump” immigrants on it? Hmm. That sounds a little … searching for the word here … racist — a lot racist, actually. But Nancy Pelosi agrees with it. She immediately issued a statement: “The extent of this administrations cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated. Using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable.”
But that doesnt really make sense. How can the presence of immigrants “perpetuate fear?” San Francisco is a sanctuary city. It subverted federal law in the hope more illegal immigrants would come. Now they may be coming, and San Francisco is upset.
Well, say the news anchors, Trumps plan is illegal. Theres a process. Really? Did the people of Lewiston, Maine, or Hazleton, Pennsylvania — and countless other places across the country — take part in a process when massive groups of refugees were moved to their cities? But when you try to do that to the city where Pelosi lives, its supposedly “illegal.” This is getting confusing.
Lets make it easier. Heres a list of neighborhoods that could use some immediate refugee resettlement. These are affluent places. They are politically liberal. As a matter of policy and conviction, they love illegal immigrants; they just dont really have any yet. Lets change that. (RELATED: CHANGE THE LAWS NOW!

First would be Beacon Hill in Boston. The neighborhood has a median income of over $120,000 a year. Its not very diverse, so it could be greatly strengthened by thousands of migrants. As John Kerry, who lives in Beacon Hill, warned in 2017: “Fear of the outsider, fear of someone who isnt you, fear of someone that doesnt look like you is an attack on America itselRead More – Source
