They can't go anywhere, they don't have golf carts

It's comes as no surprise that Trump tried to hatch a scheme to dump asylum seekers into the congressional districts of his political enemies. Supposedly it was rejected as illegal, more likely they just couldn't figure out how to do it without getting caught. 

After this story became public, officials claimed it was considered and discarded but Trump immediately tweeted that he was still considering it. One big flaw in Trump's revenge strategy is that after they dump the people in one city there's absolutely nothing to keep them leaving. They have shown a willingness to walk a thousand miles to get here while Trump drives his golf cart onto the green to avoid a couple of steps.

An Appeals Court temporarily lifted a ban on Trump's scheme to force asylum seekers to rot in Mexico while awaiting a hearing. A full hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
