"My Sick Idea": President Trump on Sending Immigrants To Sanctuary Cities

Scott McDonald reports for Newsweek on President Trump's Saturday night rally ally in Green Bay Wisconsin, "mostly touting his work in office, calling out Democrats, name-shaming Democrats and spinning a rolodex of cliches often heard at his rallies." The president recalled his recent statement that he would start sending immigrants who overstayed their visits at holding facilities to the so-called sanctuary cities. “Last month alone, 100,000 illegal immigrants arrived at our borders, placing a massive strain on communities and schools and hospitals and public resources, like nobody has ever seen before,” Trump said to the crowd. “Now, we’re sending many of them through sanctuary cities, thank you very much.”  “I’m proud to tell you that was actually my sick idea,” the president said.  

Two weeks ago, President Trump said that, because detention facilities had become overcrowded, he would bus immigrant to "sanctuary cities," which limit assistance in federal immigration enforcement efforts.
