Democrats Set Final Deadline for IRS to Release Trump’s Tax Returns

Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin testifies during a House Financial Services Committee Hearing on Capitol Hill

Press secretary Sarah Sanders adds Sunday that Trump wishes no "ill will" toward the freshman lawmaker.

Federal law gives the chairmen of House Ways and Means, Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation the power to request the returns of any taxpayer, although some legal scholars believe the request needs a legitimate legislative goal, which Democrats say they have met. Trump frequently invokes these cities in his calls for stricter immigration laws, and they serve as symbols for what he believes are failed immigration policies.

But according to a report published by The Washington Post on Thursday, the plan to send detained immigrants who are in the country illegally to so-called sanctuary cities was seen by some White House officials as a way "to retaliate against President Trump's political adversaries".

Cracking down on illegal immigration has been a central theme of the Trump presidency, and in his interview with NPR, Gidley said Trump is trying to make good on that promise through the sanctuary cities plan.

Several prominent Democrats, including presidential candidates Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, condemned Trump's tweet, saying he was inciting racism and violence toward Omar with the video.

The Trump administration is dealing with an ever-increasing number of Central American migrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border that has pushed the immigration system to the breaking point. "It actually could encourage more immigrants".

"Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very risky immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only", Trump wrote in a tweet.

William Nylander and John Tavares also scored for the Maple Leafs, who last season lost in the first playoff round to Boston . Toronto leaned on Frederik Andersen to secure the result with the Bruins pressing desperately in the third period.

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said his city welcomes any families "who have endured such incredible hardships and have endeavored to make a better life for themselves and their families and want to be a part of our great country".

He told reporters it was more important to get the decision "right" to ensure the IRS would not be "weaponised" in a political dispute. "They do these watered down push backs that frankly they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done".

"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 a massive number of people that are already here".

Scott acknowledged the president's frustration over a lack of progress on addressing the influx of migrants, but said the administration had to comply with the law.

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.

The popular west coast United States city boss also noted that Trump "is demonizing immigrants and refugees to incite fear and to distract the American public from his own failures".
