Or during a Q and A town hall style, when the question popped up (and I'd make sure it did obviously)...

"You all may have heard that President Trump was trying to get DHS to 'dump' undocumented immigrants who couldn't be detained into sanctuary cities to 'punish' Democrats and liberals. Well, while South Bend is not a sanctuary city, as a mayor I do know a thing or two about running a city and taking in and resettling immigrants or refugees. I know about growing a city and creating opportunities for long-time residents and newcomers alike...

I know that immigrants make our communities safer, immigrants make our communities stronger, and immigrants add to the fabric of our communities and cultures. They can make the day-to-day experience of living life richer and more fulfilling, and we can do the same for them.

Just as importantly, they're hard workers, determined to build their American Dreams from the ground up... So when this president says he wants to 'dump' immigrants in liberal cities to punish them? Well this mayor would say, 'Thank you, Mr. President... This is a blessing for our city!' And to the immigrants, 'Welcome to America! I just know you're going to live it here...' Or, 'Bienvinidos a los Estados Unidos,' or... (proceed to rattle off some of his many languages).

Because it's not a liberal or a conservative idea to welcome immigrants, it's an American idea... So if the president thinks he's going to "punish" us with immigrants, he's got another think coming, because we will proudly take in the tired and the poor... While they may be his wretched refuse... they're our huddled masses yearning to breathe free!"

Something like that would go viral so quickly, get so much free media, and resonate so much with the base that he'd probably snag 5 points in the polls - which is huge for where he's at... And you could cut it into one hell of an online campaign ad. Picture the style of Bernie's 'America' ad, with Pete's speech cut up with shots of scenery around America, people welcoming immigrants, immigrants opening businesses, highly successful/famous immigrants, etc... Drop some lower third IDs including their name, company they started, number of jobs created, etc...
I think you're way overestimating the American electorate here. Huge chance this would backfire bigly.

Has Fox issued any kind of retraction for that poll graphic or Lou Dobbs spending his show gushing about it?

Mueller investigation is a rigged witch hunt you should ignore, also you should take very seriously the exoneration from my cherry picked hack AG, also the Mueller investigation should be taken very seriously with respect to the democrat guy.

I have to admit I find Trump tweets to be more GOOD (appealing) then ever.

This is his floating a trial balloon...he will nominate her somewhere in the next year and it won’t be so shocking after he talks about it a few times first

So is there a way for cities to request getting the immigrants? My sanctuary city of 100k could use them!

Under the bus they go, Trump's true colors will always bleed through despite all efforts to tamp down on his basest cruelest instincts.
