Pres. Trump: go home, come back legally

President Trump is speaking out, on what he’s calling Democrat hypocrisy on the issue of immigration.

Taking to Twitter Friday, the president said if Democrats do not want illegal immigrants in their cities, why should anyone else?

His comments come in response to reports, which say his administration had looked into sending detained migrants to sanctuary cities.

“California certainly is always saying, ‘Oh we want more people,’ and they want more people in their sanctuary cities, said President Trump. “Well, we’ll give them more people. We can give them a lot. We can give them an unlimited supply — and let’s see if they’re so happy.”

In his tweet on Friday, the president also calls for illegal immigrants to go home and apply to return to the U.S. legally, through a system of merit.

This comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasts the sanctuary city proposal put forth by the Trump administration.

At a conference in Virginia Friday, Pelosi wasted no time in slamming the president for proposing to release immigrant detainees into sanctuary cities, like her district.

“I don’t know anything about it,” said Pelosi. “But again it’s not just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States.”
