Democrats and Republicans are fiercely divided over President Trump’s alleged proposal to place illegal immigrants who are currently being detained at the Southern Border into sanctuary cities, which are usually in Democratic districts. Leftists may argue that transporting these people is too much of a liability, but they are just scared of experiencing the negative consequences of a policy that they supported. They love to mention how the Statue of Liberty tauts the saying “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”, however they still do not want these huddled masses arriving in their city. Liberals are being hypocritical if they only want to accommodate for the illegals that are currently there, because they criticize the right for putting American citizens and legal immigrants first.
Another flawed argument that I have often heard about this proposal is that President Trump is using the immigrants at the border as political props to get the Democrats to get rid of sanctuary cities altogether. Although this argument is completely valid, Democrats forget that they do the exact same thing with illegal immigrants. They use the situation at the border as an opportunity to call the right inhumane and anti-immigrant for trying to handle a caravan of immigrants that they are not responsible for creating. They like to pretend that the United States is not doing enough to handle the masses, when in reality, Mexico is not doing enough to deal with the caravans, by making vulnerable people trek through their nation only to be held in a detention center for months in the United States. All President Trump is doing is using Democratic proposals to his advantage to take care of the crisis at the border.
