White House Looking at Sending Migrants to Sanctuary Cities

"Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very risky immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities only", he wrote on Twitter.

Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley spoke with Fox News Channel's Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, and after he articulated the notion, Trump tweeted about it.

"We hereby demand that they be taken care of at the highest level, especially by the State of California, which is well known (for) its poor management & high taxes!" he posted. "The president wants us to [consider it] again so that is being done and they're doing a complete and thorough review".

A lawyer for Trump said in a letter last week that the efforts are an attempt to harass a political opponent and that it would set a "dangerous precedent" for the agency to turn them over.

She added, "I find what her comments to be absolutely disgraceful and unbefitting of a member of Congress and I think that it's a good thing that the president is calling her our for those comments".

Hundreds of US cities, along with California, the country's most populous state, have declared themselves as havens for migrants who have illegally crossed the southern USA border with Mexico, refusing the help US immigration officials to track down the immigrants so they can be deported.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, the head of the House Homeland Security Committee, said Trump sanctuary city plan is aimed at creating "manufactured chaos" at the border.

An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to "sanctuary cities" to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat whose constituents include Manhattan's financial district, which was targeted on September 11, 2001, said he had no issues with Omar's characterization of the attack.

The president has also claimed the filings are too complex for people to understand. "The idea that the administration thought in any way that it would be acceptable to use families and children, human beings, as political retribution against their enemies should infuriate every American regardless of political affiliation".

In a two-page letter, Neal writes that he believes his committee is well within its rights to see the President's tax returns and that he expects a decision from the IRS within the next 10 days.

Trump's remarks came after the White House and Department of Homeland Security said they were no longer pursuing the suggestion to have DHS release immigrants detained at the southern border into sanctuary cities in part to retaliate against Democrats who oppose Trump's plans for a border wall.

According to Sanders, that includes lawmakers, whom she doesn't trust to "look through the decades of success that the president has and determine anything".
