    We Thought Sanctuary Cities Welcomed Illegal Immigrants? (Audio: Podcast)

    We Thought Sanctuary Cities Welcomed Illegal Immigrants? (Audio: Podcast)

    Mayors and governors of sanctuary cities and states have spent several years obtaining cheap virtue signaling by proclaiming their hospitality to illegal border crossers without ever actually crossing paths with any of them. But a genius move by Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, providing voluntary transportation for illegals to sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York and Washington DC has got those same mayors and governors squealing like stuck pigs, especially with governors like Doug Ducey (AZ) and Ron DeSantis (FL) emulating Abbott's strategy. IPI President Tom Giovanetti and Resident Scholar provide an unhesitating defense of these strategies, and suggest some other cities and states that should also be destination for illegal immigrants.

PrefectGuy ,

Partisan hack podcast. Complete trash.

Parsing through all the lies and nonsense while working in public policy is a tough job and we do not need unethical trash like this adding to the noise. This podcasts is almost entirely devoid of facts, chock full of misinformation and empty rhetoric, and add nothing useful to the public policy arena other than trying to sway minds for partisan political outcomes. In the most recent episode concerning whether Hillary Clinton broke the law they simply made a reference to the Espionage act and said they think she broke it. No details. No actual discussion of what the act actually says. No legal evaluation of the elements of the act she violated. Nothing. Just said she broke the espionage act and then went on a tirade about how she will never be prosecuted under the President because the party won’t allow it. Political hacks and amateurs. These kind of unethical dirtbags and partisan propagandists make me sick.
