All the celebrities that occupy Hollywood, California have such a disdain for President Trump that is truly remarkable. Many of them suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Pop star and former actress, Cher, falls into that category. The Academy Award winner consistently blasts the Trump administration on Twitter.
But things took an odd turn when Cher blasted her hometown, Los Angeles, and Trump actually agreed with her.
There’s no question that we have a serious problem going on at the southern border where caravans of immigrants are fleeing their native lands in order to seek a better life in the United States.
A wall is one answer that President Trump has been pushing for a couple of years since he’s been in office and even ran his campaign that he would get it done.
Democrats pushed back hard and Congress refused to give Trump the money he needed to build it. That’s why the Department of Defense allocated $1 billion of its military budget towards it.
In the meantime, Trump is always coming up with ways in order to prevent the crisis at the border.
One idea he came up with last week was to dump all of the illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities, which are jurisdictions that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield illegal’s from ICE. Why wouldn’t that be a legitimate idea when big cities like Los Angeles, Seattle and New York all advocate for and protect illegal immigrants?
Referring to Democrats, Trump said, “They’re always saying they have open arms. Let’s see if they have open arms.”
Cher wrote on Twitter, “I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More.”

But not everybody agrees with Trump and Cher. Democratic mayors across the United States said they would be more than willing to welcome illegal immigrants to their cities.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wrote in a statement, “He uses people like pawns. New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants – the President’s empty threats won’t change that.”
In Philadelphia, Mayor Jim Kenney said he “would be prepared to welcome these immigrants just as we have embraced our immigrant communities for decades,” and then said the White House was demonstrating “the utter contempt that the Trump Administration has for basic human dignity.”
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan fired back at Trump in an op-ed piece in the Washington Post, “Contrary to what this President thinks, in Seattle, we have strong American values of inclusiveness and opportunity. Instead of threatening immigrant families and the cities that welcome them, this President should spend a little bit more time trying to learn from us.”
These mayors are completely clueless as to who would have to supplement financial constraints put on the city as a result of importing illegal immigrants – the taxpayers.
Is this just willful ignorance or complete delusion on their part?
