If a sanctuary city is willing to accept illegal aliens, why not let them, so long as they have a system and contractually agree to cover the costs?

If San Francisco wants to take all the illegals being held at the Mexico/California border why not let them? With the stipulation that San Fran agrees to provide all housing costs, provide food stamps, health insurance, etc. Should any of these immigrants leave the city, San Francisco, would have to pay full costs to either have them brought back or deported. Obviously immigrants in this scenario wouldn’t be illegal, but would be probationary residents status by their sanctuary city. Obviously should any of these immigrants commit a crime it would fall on the sanctuary city to cover any and all court costs, imprisonment costs etc.

If sanctuary cities are truly prepared to cover all costs at their expense, what’s he problem?
