President Donald Trump sent a message to Congress on Monday, urging them to return to Washington, DC to fix the country’s immigration laws.
“Congress should come back to D.C. now and FIX THE IMMIGRATION LAWS!” he wrote on Twitter.

Congress is currently on a two-week recess for Passover and Easter, and enjoying a 3-day Democrat retreat, while the president remains in Washington.

The president spent the weekend discussing a proposal to shift illegal immigrants to Democrat-run sanctuary cities since Democrats refused to change the laws.

California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Vermont are sanctuary states.

San Francisco, the hometown of Pelosi, is also a sanctuary city.

“Democrats must change the Immigration Laws FAST,” he wrote. “If not, Sanctuary Cities must immediately ACT to take care of the Illegal Immigrants – and this includes Gang Members, Drug Dealers, Human Traffickers, and Criminals of all shapes, sizes and kinds. CHANGE THE LAWS NOW!”

Responses from Democrats were all negative about the idea, surprising many.

Nancy Pelosi said" “It’s just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face, as a country, as a people, to address who we are, a nation of immigrants.”, basically saying nothing.

Of course, the media went after the President in a full on assault. Most of the responses from political officials mimicked the official media narrative that Trump is a mean person for using illegal immigrants as pawns in a game to retaliate against his political rivals.

My question is this; If sanctuary cities have said they would protect and serve illegals immigrants, then how is putting illegal immigrants there, immoral or inhumane?

Seems certain to me that it would be the most humane thing to do! They will get all of the services and protection that they need, that they would not get elsewhere. Is this a case of "not in my backyard?

The president berated media coverage of the issue, especially from the New York Times, noting that he did not offer pardons to Homeland Security officials to encourage them to break the law.

“I never offered Pardons to Homeland Security Officials, never ordered anyone to close our Southern Border (although I have the absolute right to do so, and may if Mexico does not apprehend the illegals coming to our Border), and am not ‘frustrated,” he wrote. “It is all Fake & Corrupt News!”

President Trump reiterated the plan in his most recent tweets.

There was some positive responses from Democrats, like this fellow in NY, retweeted by yours truly.

So, come back, come back Democrats, and fix the failed immigration system, or take care of the illegal immigrants like you said you would do. Start paying your "fair share" of the burden.

It's unfair for the overwhelming majority of these people to consistently be released onto the streets of border towns. If they must be released, it seems only humane to release them into the care of cities with the systems and protections already in place to take care of them.
