President Donald Trump’s campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson appeared on Steve Hilton’s Fox News show Sunday to rant about the president’s latest plan to bus migrants into Sanctuary Cities.
While critics have railed against Trump for using human beings as a political ploy, Pierson claimed that bussing people into the cities was the “compassionate thing to do.”
“The government had one function it would be to protect the homeland but the reason it is so hysterical, and we are laughing here because these are the same people in the media who are declaring chaos because the president is making the necessary changes to one of his agencies that will implement his policy,” she said in the Fox panel discussion.
Pierson then admitted, “there is no chaos on the border.”
“We had the president consistently want to fix the policies,” she continued, saying Trump tried to talk to the Democrats, but they wouldn’t play ball. The Democrats and Republicans in Congress developed a deal they’d been working on for years. When the GOP controlled the House and Senate, the plan was set, and the votes were there, but Trump refused to sign it.
“Now we have tens of thousands of more people along the way, so the president says ‘OK, fine, we will send these asylum-seekers to the communities that say we want asylum-seekers and it is a compassionate thing to do to resettle these immigrants into communities that want to protect them and keep them safe,'” she closed.

Mueller is signaling he’ll be tough witness — and it could play right into the GOP’s hands
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller is sending a very clear message: He doesn’t want to testify.
That’s the not-so-subtle subtext of the announcement that Mueller plans to submit the 448-page report detailing the findings of the Russia investigation as a statement for the record during his hearing before the House scheduled for Wednesday. Of course, Congress already has the report, so the move isn’t necessary. It’s Mueller’s way of saying, as he has previously, “The report is my testimony.”
Maddow details how Stephen Miller’s backstory makes his anti-immigrant fantasy even more horrifying
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow interviewed the uncle of White House advisor Stephen Miller on Monday to detail the family's fascinating backstory.
"It begins at the turn of the 20th century, in a dirt-floor shack in the village of Antopol, a shtetl of subsistence farmers in what is now Belarus. Beset by violent anti-Jewish pogroms and forced childhood conscription in the Czar’s army, the patriarch of the shack, Wolf-Leib Glosser, fled a village where his forebears had lived for centuries and took his chances in America," Dr. David Glosser explained in Politico.
‘The people of Montana are no fools’: Liberian refugee taking on Trump-loving Senator Steve Daines
First-term Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) was one of the few members of Congress to praise President Donald Trump's racist "go back" taunts that his supporters turned into a "send her back" chant against a black former refugee.
In response, the Billings Gazette chastised Daines in an editorial, saying, "Montanans are more sickened by the never-ending torrent of childish, bigoted views that are shoveled from the White House that make the country look like bigots and idiots. And we're nauseous when folks like Daines invoke our state in defending a spoiled New York developer who would get tongue-lashed by most Montanans for the way he takes to Twitter."
