DAILYKENN.com --The far left claims Donald Trump's threat to bus illegal aliens to sanctuary jurisdictions is retribution.
Seriously? The far left considers the presence of hordes of aliens on their turf to be punative retaliation? That smacks of xenophobia.
A plan under consideration by President Trump to transfer detained immigrants to "sanctuary cities" should be viewed as an overture to Democrats, not political retribution, a White House spokesman said on Sunday.
"It's not political retribution," Hogan Gidley, the White House Deputy Press Secretary, told NPR. "If anything, you should consider it on the Democrat side to be an olive branch."
But according to a report published by The Washington Post on Thursday, the plan to send detained immigrants who are in the country illegally to so-called sanctuary cities was seen by some White House officials as a way "to retaliate against President Trump's political adversaries."
Initially, White House and Homeland Security officials said the plan had been scrapped, but on Friday, President Trump confirmed the report, telling reporters, "We'll bring them to sanctuary city areas and let that particular area take care of it."
