Is this the twilight zone. If the cities don't have any suitable office, set one up. Did that not cross your mind?? They haven't a choice if the government want to tag them, why should it bother the asylum seekers? They'll be in a safe place with their "American" friends.
Why would I care to set an "office" up?

Maybe you should have them tattooed in addition to the GPS chip or whatever. Then we could sent the citizen militias after them and shoot them on sight like in the "good old days".

What is so funny, it that apparently he does not even know what he ranting and raving about...again


PHOENIX (AP) – An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to “sanctuary cities” to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country.

The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with some of the nation’s biggest immigration advocacy groups based in places like San Francisco, New York City and Chicago. The downside for the immigrants would be a high cost of living in the cities.

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University announced this week that an analysis found the likelihood of an immigrant in sanctuary cities such as New York and Los Angeles are 20% less likely to be arrested out in the community than in places without such policies.

“With immigrants being less likely to commit crimes than the U.S. born population, and with sanctuary jurisdictions being safer and more productive than non-sanctuary jurisdictions, the data damns this proposal as a politically motivated stunt that seeks to play politics with peoples’ lives,” said George Gascon, district attorney for San Francisco.

Trump Sanctuary City Idea Could Help Some Immigrants
He had Sarah Sanders on Fox News claiming it's an option because sanctuary cities promote open borders. And he's also now claiming that the US has every legal right to send asylum seekers to sanctuary cities. Some may very well benefit from that policy. But, I didn't see either him or Sanders back up their claims with any legal precedence.

Send them to every sanctuary city. Funny how now you think this is not OK. So you have a severe case of Nimby!
If these idiots want them here then give them what they want. Perfect.
Nope we just hate to be a party to the authoritarian's dream scenario. Since they will be free to go anywhere they want anyway.
You need to find another way to play your militia games.

You didn't really think that argument through - did you? If they have sanctuary city laws that obviously means they don't have any problem with immigration/asylum seekers. Then, use a little critical thinking here. Wouldn't that logically lead to the conclusion that the objections are based on something else?

Like maybe the rule of law.
