Those Who Advocate Sanctuary Cities Should Experience the Consequences

In the category of Mad Magazine’s “scenes we’d like to see” comes President Donald Trump’s threat to transport migrants to cities and states that have declared themselves sanctuaries. Apparently he thinks such a move would force Democrats in Congress who represent these places to vote to fund the wall along our southern border.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls the president’s threat “unworthy of the presidency.” In fact, it is Congress that has been unworthy for a long time. Here is a body that passes laws everyone else must obey, but in too many cases is exempt from adhering to some of them.
In 1995, the House and Senate passed the Congressional Accountability Act, which finally applied many civil rights, labor, and workplace safety statutes to the legislative branch, yet two very important laws, the Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act, do not apply to Congress. There are others.
Wealthy members of Congress might take offense should immigrants move into their neighborhoods. They don’t seem to care about the harm caused to ranchers and other property owners in states along the southern border.
Legal experts say it would be illegal under current law to move people to sanctuary cities and states. This crosses the border of ridiculousness.
