    Send them to Detroit. We already have a huge immigrant population here, not to mention plenty of empty houses.

    If you read the WP article the whole thing is now a non-issue.

    The proposal faded when House Democrats ultimately relented on their demand for a decrease in the number of detention beds, a final sticking point in budget talks between the White House and House Democrats.

    It should never have been a proposal in the first place.

    BTW Did they want those detained to sleep on the floor or two to a bed?

    Hmm, Not in my back yard?

    That - Sending them to Detroit - might not be the best or a workable solution. Piling immigrants on immigrants.

    Are there ample opportunities for jobs there?

    Surely it would be best for all involved for all immigrants to be properly vetted and allowed to settle in areas that would best benefit from their particular skills and abilities.

    Man are you an idiot. Detroit is my back yard, it was created by immigrant communities and still as the largest Muslim population outside the middle east.

    Again you insult me. Sad.

    Hell - Detroit is some 48.5 miles. That isn't one's back yard/your town, there are several towns and communities between Hell and Detroit.

    I won't personally insult you about your incorrect statement "still as the largest Muslim population outside the middle east."
    I shall merely correct you:The country outside the Middle East with the single largest population of Muslims is apparently Indonesia in Southeast Asia, which on its own hosts 13% of the world's Muslims.

    Dude,
    Over here in the USA, especially in the midwest, anything under 100 miles is in your backyard. 50 miles is down the road a piece.all a matter of perspective.

    So, you are opposed to Trump's plan to flood certain cities with immigrants to cause chaos?

    I see a few flaws in the premise here:
    1 - Sanctuary cities are already working to support undocumented immigrants. So why is anyone suggesting “not in my backyard?”
    2 - I thought sanctuary cities weren’t legal. They are being established on “moral” and “ethical” positions. Is Trump
    encouraging an illegal and immoral act? Again?


    And then again will the republicans continue to support this lunacy?

    The central premise is that municipalities/cities can not spare the funding to enforce Federal law, and are also on very shaky ground, legally, if they choose to do so.

    Without a writ, they can not legally hold a corpus, yet that is what Trumpco demands.

    Getting rid of Trump will mean getting rid of a LOT of problems.

    I just hope I live long enough to give his grave a golden shower.

    Isn't that the truth. Years ago I moved a friend of mine and his new wife back to her hometown in Oklahoma. Two days in a uhaul towing trailer, in the winter, from New Jersey to Oklahoma. It was a good trip except for the blizzard in the Mountains of Pa. Anyway, I had a day to kill before flying home and we borrowed her car to go into town and see the local museum. Directions included this gem "Go down to the next traffic light and make a left". In New Jersey, that's about half a mile at best. On northern Oklahoma, it was 10 miles to the next light. The town we were going to was actually close to 25 miles away... and that was considered close.

    The private understanding I have is that the next time you do that, I'll do everything in my power to ban your tired trolling whining ass to your little island for life.

    I have no idea what you're referring to otherwise. I've told you every other time you've pulled your little school boi stunt that I don't read what you send. I barely read your other crap other than to ridicule it.

    Got it?
