President Responds to Targeted Catch and Release Plans as Only He Could

The President used his signature wry humor to make his point.

Donald Trump has long been sounding the alarm on illegal immigration into America, and it doesn’t look as though that will change any time soon.

The latest battle over the border comes to us from deep inside the United States, however, as a plan by the President to release immigration detainees into so-called “sanctuary cities” was exposed.  The move, which certainly carried with it the air of revenge, was widely lambasted in the media and by liberal lawmakers.

The President, however, was indignant over the matter – as he often is when it come to the subject of immigration – and appeared to double down on his plan just yesterday.

President Trump responded to reports Friday that his administration proposed releasing immigrant detainees in sanctuary cities by not only confirming the plan but saying it remains under “strong” consideration.

Further, the president tweeted that relocating illegal immigrants to these districts should make the “Radical Left” happy.

The comments came after The Washington Post first 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 President used his signature wry humor to make his point.

“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.

“The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy—so this should make them very happy!” he continued.

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 Department of Homeland Security has defended the possible plan by admitting that what the President was suggesting was perfectly legal.
