“When I was Governor, illegal aliens cost AZ taxpayers $1.6 billion/yr in education, health care and incarceration costs. So, why do we continue to bear these costs when sanctuary cities encourage illegal immigration? Great plan by @realDonaldTrump to utilize those cities!” the Republican tweeted.
Jan Brewer called President Trump’s proposal to dump illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities a “great plan” on Monday.
Trump tweeted Friday he had put new immigration plan under “consideration.”
“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump said. “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”
Trump was later asked to clarify his comments. He said states like California should get an “unlimited supply” of illegal immigrants and see if they would still be happy.
