After reports circulated last week that President Donald Trump had pushed for a policy that would release undocumented immigrants into sanctuary cities, Trump appeared to attempt to put the policy in practice via Twitter on Monday.
Why, thank you Mr. President. We could use people like this, people with foresight and initiative. People who want a better life for themselves and their families. People willing to take action against oppression and persecution, and you’re sending them to places open to their arrival and eager to see them succeed.
They will add so much to the culture and economy of their new homes, opening new businesses, introducing us to the arts and foods of their old homes. In time now depressed areas may well see an infusion of industry as the derelict is replaced by the vibrant and the infusion of hope sees us responding in kind.
In addition, in about a generation we should see a new political vitality become established, as the voice of progress and civil engagement is renewed and our problems are addressed by those happy to see that their efforts will not be as oppressed as they were in the old land. I mean, we can’t be as bad as their former governments. I mean, we’re not going to but up with it, and our efforts will be supported by our new immigrants.
Expect new leaders to arise from the refugees. Expect them to take advantage of the opportunities they will find in this land . Expect them to succeed, and through that success encourage success amongst their new neighbors. You may well be remembered in the future as the man who revitalized the U.S. and gave us hope renewed. I know you were hoping to see things go very badly for us and them, but keep in mind that your desires to do ill can well result in great good happening to your enemies.
