While Democrats have been outraged over the Trump plan to send illegals to sanctuary cities, in 2016 none of them complained with Obama planned to send thousands of illegal immigrant children to Alabama, the home state of then Senator Jeff Sessions.
As reported by AL.com (June 2016)
The White House is considering a plan to relocate thousands of illegal immigrant children to the home state of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, causing some to question whether presidential politics is at play.
Sessions has for years has led the opposition to immigration policies supported by President Barack Obama. The plan would send the children to Baldwin County, across the bay from Sessions’ home in Mobile County.
Sessions has also emerged among Donald Trump’s fiercest supporters and was the first senator to endorse the GOP presidential nominee.Trump’s hardline immigration approach – which includes deportation of all undocumented immigrants and a wall built along the U.S.-Mexican border — has been embraced by Sessions.
“It’s highly probable that this is more political than practical,” said Baldwin County Commissioner Chris Elliott.
