Cher: Los Angeles 'Can't Take Care of its Own,' Let Alone More Immigrants
Pop singer reverses stance on mass migration, asking how can LA 'take care of more'?
Liberal pop star Cher has reversed her stance on mass immigration by declaring that her home city of Los Angeles "can't take care of its own" before asking how asking how it can "take care of more" immigrants.
The singer seemed to do a U-turn on her usual anti-Trump rhetoric as the bashed the idea of California taking in more migrants.
“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN,” Cher said in a Sunday tweet.
“WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+????????Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS. PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS) How Can it Take Care Of More?”

Cher’s position appears to be a complete reversal to her attitude toward illegal aliens, when, in 2017, she offered to “take a dreamer” into her home and business.
“Those Who Can Must Take a DREAMER In2 Their Home & Protect Them,” she wrote.
“I’m Ready 2 Do This & Others in MY BUSINESS WILL DO THE SAME. SANCTUARY.”

According to Breitbart, Cher says she fails to understand how the city of Los Angeles in the sanctuary state of California could afford to admit and take care of any more immigrants when city officials have failed to care for homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans.
The post came after President Trump threatened to bus border crossers and illegal aliens into sanctuary cities and states, like California, if the country’s asylum laws were not changed.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the White House is considering the plan.
Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 12, 2019
....The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 12, 2019
In response, Democrat mayors across the country — like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf — have welcomed bringing illegal aliens and border crossers to their cities.
While left-wing mayors say they will continue to admit any and all illegal and legal immigrants, Los Angeles is home to the second largest homeless population in the country, second to only New York City.
About 50,000 residents of Los Angeles are homeless and about 7.5 percent of California’s American Veteran population is homeless.
As the city remains crippled by homelessness and skyrocketing housing costs, Los Angeles metro area is also home to the second largest illegal alien population — with nearly a million illegal aliens living in the region, according to Pew Research Center.
Last year, economists at Deakin University found that immigration — both illegal and legal — drives up housing prices on average, with the researchers writing “we find no evidence that house prices sink as a result of immigration.”
