Sending Illegal Immigrants to Sanctuary Cities is an Option on the Table

President Donald Trump called out The New York Times on April 13 for their "corrupt" reporting on illegal immigration, adding that the newspaper would soon be out of business.

Neal's request for the returns of a sitting president is unprecedented, and legal experts say its success or failure may depend on a court ruling about the committee's legislative goal for seeking the documents.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott addresses supporters at his midterm election night party in Naples, Florida, U.S. November 6, 2018. "But until we can fix the crisis at the border, we have to look at all options".

The tweet led Trump's Twitter feed early Sunday afternoon with more than 9 million views. Neal has argued that the committee needs Trump's tax information in order to conduct oversight of the Presidential audit program, a program that is not enshrined in law, but instead has become a routine procedure at the IRS that when a new President comes into office.

On Friday, Trump tweeted a video that juxtaposed the snippet, which Omar´s fellow Democrats say was taken out of context, with images of the hijacked planes used in the attacks crashing into the Twin Towers that once dominated New York´s skyline.

"Sanctuary cities" are jurisdictions that limit, to various degrees, how much their local law enforcement will work with federal immigration authorities to deport undocumented immigrants.

On Saturday, he said his administration has "the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities". We need a law. This has nothing to do with whether or not they are going to determine policy.

"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. "They do these watered down push backs that frankly they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done". "The president wants us to explore it again, so that's being done and they're doing a complete and thorough review".

Sanders condemned efforts by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal to review Trump's tax returns, saying she doesn't believe congressional Democrats are "smart enough" to review the documents.

The transportation of immigrants who are arrested at the border to large and faraway cities would be burdensome and costly at a time when Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already stretched thin, having released over 125,000 immigrants into the country pending their immigration court since December 21.

Meanwhile, mayors of some sanctuary cities have reacted to Trump's apparent threat by saying they would welcome the migrants.

Immigration is Donald Trump's signature issue. "If they reverse the decision and send people here, I'd be happy to have them".
