White House: Migrants to sanctuary cities not a top choice

Like immigrants? Here’s an 'unlimited supply’: Trump threatens to dump illegals in sanctuary cities

US President Donald Trump 'strongly looking' at releasing migrants in Democratic cities

"Again, this isn't the president's plan", Sanders said, of Trump's plan.

That's the reasoning that was offered up by Trump's Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the weekend.

Last weekend, Mick Mulvaney, who is the acting White House chief of staff, told Fox News that Democrats would "never" see Mr. Trump's tax returns.

Trump tweeted on Saturday evening that the USA had the "absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities".

Sanders said the proposed policy would take burden off of border cities by sending the migrants to places "who constantly claim to want to have open borders and want to have an open city".

Democrats slammed President Trump on Sunday for threatening to release illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities to retaliate against political foes, accusing him of employing migrants as "pawns" and of overstepping his presidential powers.

"Immigrants and refugees are part of Seattle's heritage, and they will continue to make us the city of the future", Durkan wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Friday. That would set up a protracted legal battle between the Trump administration and House Democrats that could span beyond the 2020 presidential elections. Our immigrant neighbors make up more than 18 percent of our population, and 21 percent of our population speaks a language other than English at home. "So you can't just say that today someone is looking at me odd and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant", Omar explained.

Migrants Could Benefit From Trump Sanctuary City Idea
A DHS official said the idea was "briefly and informally raised and quickly rejected" prior to the president's comments. The government's failure to respond by an April 23 deadline could send the dispute into federal court.

The idea to ship migrants to Democratic strongholds was considered twice in recent months but the White House and DHS said the plan had been rejected. After fierce backlash from across the political spectrum, she apologized, but also suggested she was being criticized for speaking her mind.

Trump told reporters on March 8 that Democrats have now become "an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party" after Omar-a Somalia-born Muslim-sparked fresh criticism for questioning why US lawmakers support Israel.

"The president heard the idea, he likes it, so - well, we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible, and doing a full and thorough and extensive review". "We have people working on it diligently".

A Democratic congresswoman says she will not be silenced after facing a barrage of criticism over comments she made about the 9/11 attacks - including from Donald Trump.

Since his first days in office, Trump has attempted to reign in sanctuary cities or states, arguing that they create security threats for the American citizens living there.

Schaaf appeared on CNN and NPR's "Weekend Edition" to condemn the president's proposal, saying she was "proud to be the mayor of a sanctuary city".

And despite the consideration given to releasing the immigrants on the streets to sanctuary cities, the Trump administration actually has plenty of jail space to detain families.
