Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) wrote that her city is “not afraid of immigrants” in response to President Trump’s proposal to send detained immigrants to “sanctuary cities.”

“Here’s a message to President Trump: Seattle is not afraid of immigrants and refugees. In fact, we have always welcomed people who have faced tremendous hardships around the world. Immigrants and refugees are part of Seattle’s heritage, and they will continue to make us the city of the future,” she wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Friday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“What does scare us? A president and federal government that would seek to weaponize a law enforcement agency to punish perceived political enemies. A would-be despot who thinks the rule of law does not apply to him,” she wrote.

In the OpEd, published by WashingtonPost, Durkan wrote:

    These are not immigrants or refugees. These would be illegals. Illegals . Why is that so hard for them to say?

    So line up a caravan of busses and head for Socal. Start in LA and drop off 5 busses worth there, then hit San Francisco drop off 6 or 7 busses worth there. Then hit Oakland, with at least 5 busses worth and then proceed to Portland and then Seattle. Make this an every week deal till the border is secured. Oh and just so Minnesota and New York don’t feel left out do the same with them.

    Seattle started off as milling/mining town 100 years ago. It turned to booze and drugs and PROSTITUTION. Burnt its city down. Still very much a drug city homeless stretching out 15 + miles outside of city limits. Demokrats keep their druggies fixated and impoverished. That is Seattle washington.
    My daughter a traveling nurse told us.
