Great minds — Pelosi or Trump?

By THE ANCHORAGE DAILY PLANET

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in a snit because President Donald Trump says he plans to dump illegal aliens in sanctuary cities, like her San Francisco, as we suggested days ago in an editorial.

“The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” a Pelosi spokeswoman said. “Using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable.”

Cynicism? Cruelty? It is cynical and cruel not to fix this nation’s broken immigration system. It is cynical and cruel to allow the system’s asylum provisions to entice illegals on a dangerous path north.

Ms. Pelosi who has done little to stanch the flow of illegals now seems to want them everywhere – but in her district. She should take down the walls she lives behind and enjoy the fruits of her handiwork.

As for us, we are glad the president is reading our editorials. Or is it just a case of great minds thinking alike?
