White House backpedals on Trump’s threat to send migrants to ‘sanctuary cities’

BETHPAGE NEW YORK- APRIL 06 Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally

The report noted that it was unclear if the comment from Trump was a joke, and the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that Trump had not directed McAleenan "to do anything illegal".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders talks with reporters outside the White House, Thursday, April 4, 2019, in Washington.

Neal said that the Committee is "considering legislative proposals and conducting oversight related to our Federal tax laws, including, but not limited to, the extent to which the IRS audits and enforces the Federal tax laws against a President".

On Saturday night, to widespread consternation, the president tweeted that it was: "Just out: The USA has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities". 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.

Sanders went on to say that Trump's plan is "not our first choice, probably not even our second or third choice, but we have to look at all options as long as Democrats refuse to do their jobs and fix the problem".

Should the IRS miss the new deadline, Neal could follow with a subpoena or opt to file a lawsuit.

A lawyer for President Trump likened the request to "harassment".

The top White House aide also accused Democrats of not coming out themselves to criticise their colleague.

Ocasio-Cortez riles pundits for defending Ilhan Omar with Holocaust quote
Ilhan Omar , D-Minn., who had been criticized for characterizing the 9/11 terrorist attacks as "some people did something". The Omar controversy stems from comments she made last month at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser.

It actually could make it more hard for Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to arrest people facing deportation because sanctuary cities do not work with ICE.

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 USA lawmakers support Israel.

"I'm sure we'll respond by that deadline, not going to make a commitment prematurely whether we'll be able to conclude a legal review by that deadline", Mnuchin said. "They do these watered down push backs that frankly they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done".

"It's not political retribution", Hogan Gidley, the White House Deputy Press Secretary, told NPR. "The president likes the idea and Democrats have said they want these individuals into their communities so let's see if it works and everybody gets a win out of it".

Meanwhile, mayors of some sanctuary cities have reacted to Trump's apparent threat by saying they would welcome the migrants. "We have people working on it diligently".

"Look, you can't threaten somebody with something they're not afraid of", said Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington state, a candidate for president.

".So interesting to see the Mayor of Oakland and other Sanctuary Cities NOT WANT our now "detained immigrants" after release due to the ridiculous court-ordered 20-day rule".
