    This will significantly boost the GDP of sanctuary cities. It's going to have the opposite effect from what Trump expects.

    Sanctuary cities will have access to cheaper labor and that will pump up their economies as jobs move from Trump territory to these cities.

    I would expect cities to be fighting over who gets first dibs on these people, provided Trump is keeping the hardened criminals locked up and only releasing those whose only crime was crossing the border. They want to work.

      Trump was in the construction and hotel business.

      He was still employing illegals in his hotels just a few months ago. He doesn't eVerify, even though it's free. He likes the cheap labor as much as any illegal employer.

      Truth is the illegals are good workers.

      @trumpwins, the point is that you dont have to pay minimum wage to the illegals, so the fact that minimum wage is $16 actually means more people would want to hire illegals in Seattle

      This sounds like some SimCity fantasy that fixates on metrics over reality.

      When you gather that many unskilled workers in one place you're going to get space shortages and decrease the QOL for everyone who's there already. Case in point: the high rise slums in Hong Kong, and that's one of the less horrendous examples.

      It's not that many. It's a lot at the border for El Paso but if you spread them out to sanctuary cities around the country it's an easily manageable number.

      If Trump took all the migrants from the entire border and dumped them all on a single city it would be a problem, but if he distributes them proportionally to cities by population it'll be just fine.

    The far left hates facts and reality and is only interested in virtue signaling. This plan will debunk their position once and for all.

    Libtards are hypocrites. They love illegals but don't want them in the neighborhood.

      @dell, illegal immigrants commit more crime.

      I see why you're confused though, the media likes to say immigrants perform less crime but the stat they reference is really only talking about legal ones.

    Seriously. There are people who take such a strong position on having no limits or constraints on who or how many enter the country per year--and then go further to make their cities into "sanctuary" cities.

    Well, these people are looking for sanctuary. And they need to go somewhere. And the president is being left with no options... he can't deport them, he can't detain them long enough to process their claims, he can't have them wait in Mexico all thanks to court challenges, he's being opposed on building any kind of barrier, as well as being denied increased enforcement at the border...

    I have zero idea why Democrats should be so incensed to actually have these people come and live with them. Why do they see this as "punishment" after all they say they support?

    "ICE previously issued nine detainers for Arevalo Carranza with jails in Los Angeles and Santa Clara County, where he served time for local crimes. But the detainers were all ignored by California law enforcement, allowing him to get back “onto our streets to re-offend,” the agency said."

      Happens even more often with citizens. This is fear mongering anecdotal crap.

      Killing happens I agree but known illegal immigrants being hidden by California on 9 counts. That's something I am talking about.

      It's an anecdote that isn't consistent with the data. You're giving the false impression this is something people should worry about.

    This is ridiculous. On one hand we have 200k high-skilled workers who have a job offer competing for 70k slots. On the other hand, libtards want open border so that these illegal immigrants can find their jobs here. Let's face reality here. Most of them can only find a minimum wage job. They will barely pay any tax, not enough to cover the education cost for the young and the health care cost for the old. It's a net negative to the economy and it will only make the deficit worse. Liberal politicians push for these because they are seeing illegals and their children as guaranteed future votes. But what do libtards here get? higher tax! The IQ level of libtards are reaching all time low.

      Bring them to WA. We have no state income tax. Education is funded from property tax and sales tax which they will pay full rate just like everybody else. Their contributions to the economy will benefit everyone.

      As for high skilled workers we should fix that too, but I don't think it's useful to link the solution to one problem to the solution of an unrelated, if similar, problem.

      They will be a net positive to the economy, there is no valid economic theory under which an extra employed worker is ever a net negative, that's ignorant nonsense.

    People do realize it's against the law to hire illegals right?

    I do agree illegals are good people and work very hard but having more of them will probably increase housing issues.
