Can Trump legally move the illegal immigrants to them?
While it does put the Democrats in a logical bind, it may be, though, as the article points out, that he’s being too clever by half:
The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with some of the nation’s biggest immigration advocacy groups based in places like San Francisco, New York City and Chicago.
Well, that could be an oopsie.

Spartacus says that moving illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities “makes us less safe.” Didn’t he get the memo? These are the most wonderful people in the world.

Yes, Democrats have no interest in illegal aliens, other than as a route to power. Which makes the irony of them declaring that Trump is using them as “political pawns” exceedingly rich.
