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, you’re a white nationalist. That’s what they’ve 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 that’s not how they responded. The left wasn’t happy about Trump’s offer. They were shocked and enraged. You know what this is, they said? It’s 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 Beast’s 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.
What’s the message here? Immigrants are trash? If you wanted to defile someone’s pristine city, you’d “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 administration’s 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 doesn’t 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, Trump’s plan is illegal. There’s 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, it’s supposedly “illegal.” This is getting confusing.
Let’s make it easier. Here’s 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 don’t really have any yet. Let’s change that.
OHHH, let’s. This was one of Trump’s very best ideas, although admittedly it’s also probably the one with the least likelihood of his ever being allowed to actually do it. In hindsight, I’d bet Trump knows that too, and only brought it up at all to call attention to the staggering, balls-out chutzpahcrisy of the Democrat-Socialist “diversity” pimps. Once again, he called them out and exposed them for the brazen frauds they are—fobbing PC disaster off on the hated Normals that they’d never for one second tolerate in their own walled, gated, and guarded neighborhoods.
He not only called the pious shitlibs on their “sanctuary city” bullshit; he rubbed their noses in it, smeared them all over with it, and made complete fools out of them. No, he didn’t get it done, more’s the pity. But that wasn’t gonna happen anyway, and he still managed to score big with it nonetheless. Maybe the man really IS playing 4D chess here, huh?
