    And where will they stay? Who will feed them, provide them with work?

    I get it - I'm fine with people willing to work and benefit our society coming to Memphis - but the details of how they're going to live, at least initially, until they get on their own feet, is the part that gives many pause.

    And why that tweet is so interesting.

    She's been an advocate for LA being a sanctuary city, but when the reality of it hits her, she realizes that they cannot even deal with the homeless / out of work / hungry that are already here.

    It's a complicated issue.

    ETA: I mean, would you house them? Let them camp in tents in your yard? Most are willing to advocate this but it is someone else's responsibility to actually deal with the reality of them living here.

    Re: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.)

    just a guess, but i imagine they would integrate into the large immigrant communities that already live, work, and feed themselves here. there are lots of churches in the area that have programs that help settle refuges and immigrants

    and honestly, i donít care what cher thinks about anything.

    how about we start here? https://friendsofrefugees.com/about-...s-of-refugees/

    This group is amazing for what they have been able to do for Refugee's here in the Atlanta Metro

    It's not just Mexicans coming across the border. African migrants being held in Laredo to check for Ebola.

    Re: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.)

    The problem is the rate at which they will arrive. I know there are good folks everywhere that will want to help people in need, but if 100,000 show up they will not be able to keep up. Do you think Atlanta could absorb 100,000 without creating a terrible situation for that community?

    That speaks to the unrealistic nature of Trump's policies--he's not interested in these migrants actually getting assistance, but in overloaded the capabilities of cities that oppose his policies.

    Then, when the cities either balk or have problems due to the sheer volume, he can then caper and gibber about how it all goes to prove that we have an emergency.

    We do have an emergency, of course, but it's in the White House, not at our borders.

    This is the darkest timeline.
