Obama-Era Border Patrol Chief Blasts Dems’ Sanctuary Cities as ‘Part of This Crisis’ Amid POTUS’ Threats

On the heels of President Donald Trump’s threat to send illegal immigrants to Democrats’ sanctuary cities, Obama-era Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan is calling sanctuary cities “part of this crisis” of immigration.

The president is tossing around the idea of transporting immigrants who are in the country illegally to the sanctuary cities in the U.S.

“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump tweeted Friday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Saturday, Morgan said that while Trump battles with Congress on securing and addressing the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, he’s sending a “clear message” on illegal immigration:

“Sanctuary cities are part of this crisis. They are signaling and telling the immigrants, ‘Come here illegally, exploit our laws and our generosity. Not only will we take you in, we will protect you, we’ll reward you, and we will thwart the law enforcement from trying to do their job.'”

Watch the video below:

At the White House, the president mocked California for allegedly “always saying, ‘Oh, we want more people,’ and they want more people in their sanctuary cities.”

“Well, we’ll give them more people,” he said. “We can give them a lot. We can give them an unlimited supply, and let’s see if they’re so happy.”

See his comments below:

Top Democratic lawmaker and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters at a House Democrats three-day retreat on Friday that the president’s remarks on sending illegal immigrants to the sanctuary cities show Trump’s “unworthy of the presidency of the United States”

“It’s just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face, as a country, as a people, to address who we are — a nation of immigrants,” she said.

This comes at a time when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facilities are becoming overwhelmed, resulting in law enforcement releasing over 100,000 immigrants into the U.S. while immigrants wait for their asylum hearings, as IJR Red previously reported.

See Pelosi’s comments below:

The states that are considered sanctuary due to their laws to “obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals” from ICE include California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Vermont, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

Since 2013, Pelosi represents California’s 12th Congressional District within the city of San Fransisco, which is a sanctuary city.

You know what’s not worthy Nancy? The defiance and nullification of federal law by elected officials, which last occurred before the Civil War.

You and other sanctuaries wanted these people here. Good. Now live with them.

Asylum laws are federal laws. Tax code 6103 is federal law. The acting Sec of DHS not having the authority to close the border is federal law. Requirement for registering as a lobbyist for a foreign nation or energy corporation is federal law. Lying to Congress & the FBI are… Read more »

So much wrong to unpack.
“aiding and abetting” illegals violates federal law.
The DHS can’t close the border but the president has that authority.

…and the rest is you dragging in the kitchen sink. As usual.

So, why have these aiders and abetters not been indicted? Not violations if the indicted has an R after his name.

Speaking of the law; why haven’t these city and State officials been arrested and removed from office for violating their oath of office? They cannot “protect and defend the Constitution of the US” when they harbor illegal alien invaders; you know, the diseased and criminal law breakers who believe they… Read more »

A violation of their oath would be not abiding by a subpoena. Were you assuming there was a subpoena issued and they did not comply? Do you have a standard for D’s that does not apply to R’s? I could not help but notice the down vote which tells me… Read more »

Are you seriously trying to imply that Dems have not broken all of those laws as well or did that slip your mind

It has slipped my mind when R’s needed to obtain a POTUS tax return using 6103 of the tax code. WHEN was that? WHEN was it that ANY other POTUS promised a pardon if the Sec of DHS closed the border for him?. A WH attorney during Obama’s first year… Read more »

Would that be Sec 6103 as in… RC Section 6103 generally prohibits the release of tax information by an IRS employee. … IRC 6103(i)(1) provides that, pursuant to court order, return information may be shared with law enforcement agencies for investigation and prosecution of non-tax criminal laws. Nov 29, 2018… Read more »

6103 is more specific than shared with law enforcement. It clearly states WHO Treasury SHALL turn over returns upon written request congressional tax committee (House Chair Neal or Senate Chair Grassley) as well as federal employee who runs Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation. 7214(a) outlines the consequences if the request… Read more »

What would be the purpose of Trump releasing his tax returns EXCEPT for political fodder for the Socialists to find he missed a period or a dollar sign giving them fertile ground for impeachment.

Most oaths of elected public office specifically mention the upholding of the Constitution and the laws of the land not picking and choosing as so many (in both sides) seem inclined to do.

You probably remember #44 who had a pen and a phone and picked which law he chose to enforce with comrade Eric Holder’s help. I’m sure a few R’s are equally guilty; but events since the 2016 election have shown an overwhelming, daily disregard for Federal law and law enforcement… Read more »

Just seems ALL the law breakers are in sanctuary cities and States and operated by Dems/Socialists. You – for one – should not be discussing down votes as you seem to be holding a record for them.

Ah the true Dem politicians’ agenda, as displayed so beautifully by The Bride: Not In My Backyard (NIMBY). Isn’t that right Nancy? Open, welcoming arms to a point… enough to hire off the books to garden, clean, cook and raise your children but not enough to “Super saturate “ the… Read more »

Morte, look up “Seattle is Dying” on KOMO (the video is horrifying). https://komonews.com/news/local/komo-news-special-seattle-is-dying San Franpsychosis suffers exactly the same pathologies and so do many other Blue state cities, q.v. Portland, etc. It’s not just the homeless, but the general disregard for basic civil rights FOR THE CITIZENS. The diagnosis? The… Read more »
