Trump confirms he’s looking at releasing detained immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities

White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’

The Washington Post reported Thursday night that about the plans, disclosed in emails released to the Post and the New York Times.

One Utah Latino community leader thought a plan the White House considered to release detained immigrants into sanctuary cities, particularly Democratic strongholds, wasn't real news.

If the U.S. Treasury Department denies requests from Congress for the president's federal tax returns, they would at least have a chance of getting his state returns.

"I am proud to be the mayor of a sanctuary city", Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf said, also invoking the talking point about immigrant crime rates being supposedly lower than those of native-born Americans.

In a podcast published by Recode on Friday, Pelosi did not sugarcoat her latest opinions on Trump, saying he has "cheapened the presidency" as well as calling him out for "being a freak".

Trump has grown increasingly frustrated over the situation at the border, where tens of thousands of immigrant families are crossing each month, many to claim asylum.

Hoards of people gathered around the aircraft wreckage following the crash as debris was strewn on the ground. In addition to the three fatalities, there were four people injured and airlifted to Kathmandu by helicopter.

But Trump seemed ready to step up his fight with the cities, vowing to "give them an unlimited supply" of immigrants from the border.

Pirro asked Gidley whether the policy of sending people to sanctuary cities has already begun, and he said that it has not, "not yet, we're trying to figure out if we can do that legally".

Neal said in his letter that the request is needed to further "legislative proposals and 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".

Mnuchin, who has consulted with the White House and Department of Justice about Trump's tax returns, said earlier this week that Neal's request raised concerns about the scope of the committee's authority, privacy protections for USA taxpayers and the legislative objective of lawmakers in seeking the documents. "These migrants are fleeing violence in their homeland and they deserve our support", Hancock said in a statement to Denver7. The downside for the immigrants would be a high cost of living in the cities. Currently, the state taxation department is not allowed to release them, but the bill would change that if it gets passed and signed into law. The agency also uses commercial flights.

At the same time, many "sanctuary" communities would likely welcome the immigrants in question. "So, let's spread out some of that burden and let's put it in some of those other locations if that's what they want to see happen and are refusing to actually help fix the problem". Police in New York, Baltimore and Seattle, Wash., rarely, if ever, disclose information about when suspected criminals in the US illegally will be released from custody.

Democrats have said they will tackle immigration bills, possibly as soon as they return from their spring recess, and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has indicated an interest.
