President Trump’s plan to send migrant detainees to sanctuary cities draws concerns about cost legality

Jerrold Nadler said Sunday it's "unforgivable" if President Trump promised to pardon Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan if he broke the law by denying entry to asylum seekers. "They do these watered down push backs that frankly they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done". "If they don't want to serve our Nation by taking care of them, why should other cities & towns?"

"CHANGE THE LAWS NOW!" the president frantically tweeted Saturday. "The president wants us to [consider it] again so that is being done and they're doing a complete and thorough review".

Speaking to CNN's "State of the Union", Scott said he did not know if transporting immigrants to these jurisdictions was legal or illegal, and he suggested the president could be bluffing: "I mean maybe he's just saying this to make everybody insane, make everybody talk about it on their shows".

"So let's push some of them into their own communities", Sanders said of newly arriving migrant families.

"On Saturday the president tweeted that ".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. She said she hopes Democrats will work with the president on a comprehensive immigration bill.

Trump's tweet came after Schaaf said in an earlier TV interview that it's not right to divert the resources of local governments to address the issue of undocumented immigrants.

President Donald Trump threw more fuel on the flames of the immigration debate Saturday night in a series of tweets that singled out Democrats and news outlets that had reported on his administration's plan to relocate migrants to so-called "sanctuary cities".

"The New York Times Sanctuary Cities/Immigration story today was knowingly wrong on nearly every fact", he said. "He shouldn't use them as what he imagines as retribution to political opponents in various areas".

"No, I don't" see a legal way to do this, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos.

The president's latest move on illegal immigration comes days after US officials said they arrested or denied entry to over 103,000 people along the border with Mexico in March, more than twice as many as the same period in 2018.

The Treasury Department missed an April 10 deadline last week set by Democrats to deliver the tax returns, and Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the department hadn't decided whether to comply with the request.

"My guess is that majority don't do their own taxes, and I certainly don't trust them to look through the decades of success that the president has and determine anything", she added.
