The Missing Piece From Trump’s Immigration Reform

... I have an additional recommendation for the Trump administration. It follows along the lines of a constitutional amendment introduced by Senator Rand Paul that could be called the “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” amendment. The amendment wording is simple. “Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress.”
Why not apply the same reasoning to illegal immigration? Start with sanctuary cities. There are about 300 jurisdictions in the US that have, “a policy that is non-cooperative and obstructs immigration enforcement.” The map of these cities, not surprisingly, is remarkably similar to the red-blue electoral map of the 2016 presidential election. Any guess as to how most sanctuary cities voted on November 8?
"How close is our neighborhood to these refugees?"
Until Trump’s travel pause is in place, refugees continue to stream into the US. The State Department doubled the rate of refugees from the seven targeted countries since Judge Robart’s February 3 ruling. 1,100 refugees and counting in one week.
The Trump administration should settle all of these refugees in sanctuary cities, specifically in the most progressive neighborhoods, whose residents so vehemently oppose anything and everything Trump, including his travel restriction.
"... TOO CLOSE!"
In Judge Robart’s turf, settle the nice young men from Syria and Somalia in Bellevue or Mercer Island. In the back yard of the Ninth Circuit, place the refugees in Nob Hill or Berkeley. Don’t forget college towns like Boulder, Ithaca and Cambridge. Include Manhattan and the tony Washington, DC suburbs, home to the deep state bureaucrats and #NeverTrumpers. ...
