Question of the day: Are Democrats engaging in world-class hypocrisy when they accuse President Donald Trump of treating illegal immigrant children and families as “pawns” when he threatens to send them to so-called “sanctuary cities,” since that is essentially what Democrats have been doing almost since the day he took office by using immigration as a launch pad for a string of lawsuits against the administration?

Durkan bylined a piece in the Washington Post over the weekend that said this, among other things: “It is against our values to use people – including children and families in crisis – as political pawns.”

She noted that cities have been winning lawsuits, but conveniently didn’t add that the U.S. Supreme Court recently sided with the president on noncitizen detention.

And then Durkan’s bylined piece said something else that will infuriate gun owners. She accused Trump of “demonizing immigrants and refugees to incite fear and to distract the American public from his own failures.”
