The Trump administration’s discussion of a plan to drop illegal migrants off in sanctuary cities met with an unexpected pushback Thursday from some of the most vocal advocates of laxer immigration laws.

According to a Washington Post report published Thursday, the White House approached Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at least twice to propose that illegal border-crossers be transported to sanctuary cities.

The idea was initially floated by White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, who suggested that it would take some of the strain off the overcrowded detention centers while sending a message to sanctuary cities — most of which are controlled by opponents of the president’s immigration policies.

ICE called the proposal “inappropriate,” and argued that it could present a public relations problem. In a surprise move, a fair number of liberals sided with ICE. And some of them suddenly appeared to be concerned that a rapid influx of illegal migrants might actually pose some of the threats Trump has been claiming it would.

Actress Alyssa Milano, who has long been an advocate for fewer restrictions on migrant families, called the move “sick and twisted.”

Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro lamented “the cruelty of this administration.”

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin took things a step further, claiming Trump was using people like “pestilence to spread around the country.”

And they were not alone.

Conservatives noted the sudden flip as well.

    Just give all of them a list of cities they’re safe in if they don’t show up for court. They’ll find their way there.

      CIA Director John Brennan, with some assistance from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, gathered foreign intelligence and fed it throughout our domestic Intelligence Community.
      The FBI became the handler of Brennan’s intelligence and engaged in the more practical elements of surveillance.
      The Department of Justice facilitated investigations by the FBI and legal maneuverings, while providing a crucial shield of nondisclosure.
      The Department of State became a mechanism of information dissemination and leaks.
      Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee provided funding, support, and media collusion.
      Obama administration officials were complicit, and engaged in unmasking and intelligence gathering and dissemination.
      The media was the most corrosive element in many respects: None of these events could have transpired without their willing participation. Stories were pushed, facts were ignored, and narratives were promoted.

    So let me get this straight, the left wants open borders but the immigrants that have been vetted by the customs and border protection and weeded out the criminals and the gang members and are allowing them temporary asylum until their court date with the judge they are refusing them because they are politicizing them and saying that Trump is using them as political pawns, carrying disease and would cause pestilence in their city, and they fear a rise in crime in their city and they think they should be sent to conservative cities. The left is straight up bat shyt crazy. Build the damn wall and stop funding to sanctuary cities. And yes send the migrants to the sanctuary cities. They said they want them, they have been begging for them, they have been protesting for them, they have been shutting down the government for them, they have been welcoming them on social media from around the world to come to the USA. Send them to the sanctuary cities.

      I totally agree send them all to the sacutary cities since the liberals are so hell bent on protecting them and demanding no walls. After all they come here illegally and have no home so give them a home–right in the cities where they can thrive on the liberals bread crumbs. This is one time I disagree with ICE!

        I agree with you Heather, I am pretty sure I have heard them (Mr. Lefty) bragging about how they are all law abiding tax payers, they provide vital contributions to our society and they are just immigrating here for a better life. What happened, were they all lying to us………….again?

    Fascinating how Muslims & Leftists tell us exactly what their own motives are when they project them onto conservatives. Change “President/Trump” to “Dems:”

    “The President is literally using human beings as pawns in a political game.”

    “But judging from past practices, perhaps Mr. Trump just wanted a pool of workers closer to his properties.”

    “targeting political foes.”

    Seriously, these people KNOW they’re Lying: It’s part of Alinsky’s Rules. If some DON’T know, then they’re victims of some sort of MKUltra or weaponized virus.

    President Trump’s idea to send illegals to Sanctuary Cities is perfect……Once the Sanctuary City citizens find out they have to pay all or most of the expenses for their support they will understand why Sanctuary Cities are so stupid and hopefully support the wall and our country… Unfortunately, many of the immature citizens have no idea how the USA will change it they don’t stand up for the principals of our Constitution….

    And this just goes to show you the hypocrisy of the left. It’s amazing how they will try to spin everything and everything to try and make Trump look evil, but it ain’t working. Real Americans can see right through their bullshit. Where’s Dean Perry at? No dumb-ass comments on this? I guess even his stupid ass couldn’t come up with some bullshit defense of this.

    IF we can’t send them back then this would work. It will not take long for those cities to change their mind. Getting overwhelmed with costs and violence in the sanctuary cities will cause change fast. California get ready. New York, Chicago, you’re already feeling violence you cannot control.
    Congress needs to react to change our border laws.

    So, the Dems are cool with illegal immigrants saturating our country as long as anyone other than themselves take responsibility and care for em?

    I am SO in favor of this. This is an issue of choice, and libs are passionate about choice. Sancturary cities/states have made the choice to support illegals. My city/state has not. Therefore illegals should go to the place where freedom of choice has declared they are welcome.
