The White House is considering a plan to relocate thousands of illegal immigrant children to the home state of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, causing some to question whether presidential politics is at play.
Sessions has for years has led the opposition to immigration policies supported by President Barack Obama. The plan would send the children to Baldwin County, across the bay from Sessions' home in Mobile County.
Sessions has also emerged among Donald Trump's fiercest supporters and was the first senator to endorse the GOP presidential nominee.Trump's hardline immigration approach - which includes deportation of all undocumented immigrants and a wall built along the U.S.-Mexican border -- has been embraced by Sessions.
"It's highly probable that this is more political than practical," said Baldwin County Commissioner Chris Elliott.
Said Baldwin County Sheriff Huey "Hoss" Mack: "I hope that is not the case. The polls I've seen is Alabama is very conservative on the immigration issue. The federal government is not."
White House considers sending illegal immigrant children to Sessions' home state
I am sure none of our Leftist friends remember this.
Obama's proposal, unlike Trump's proposal, was clearly pure political spite.
There are no sancutary cities in Alabama.
Trump has proposed to send these illegals to sanctuary cities, who want them, including Nancy Pelosi's district, who has referred to illegals as "little gifts of love".
