Donald Trump's idea to dump migrants in sanctuaries raises legal questions

Trump seized on reports last week of the proposal that sought to send migrants already detained to Democratic locations or transport migrants that have just crossed the U.S. -Mexico border to sanctuary cities.

Reps. Bennie Thompson (D., Miss.), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, and Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, appeared on ABC and CNN, where they defended her comment and pushed back against Trump's tweet.

"Well we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible, and doing a full and thorough and extensive review".

"I don't think Congress, particularly this group of congressmen and women, are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume President Trump's taxes will be", Sanders told Wallace, per reporting from NBC News. "They help teach our kids, serve in law enforcement and the military, and lead our places of faith", Durkan wrote.


Sanders' primary mission was to belittle reports that Trump either jokingly or non-jokingly offered Customs and Border Protection head Kevin McAleenan a pardon if McAleenan violated USA law by closing off the southern border to migrants and asylum seekers.

US President Donald Trump's tax returns must be given to House Democrats by 23 April, a committee chair has said. But Trump said Friday he was still considering the idea.

The president claimed on Twitter on Saturday that the United States "has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities".

Earlier this month, Neal formally requested the last six years' worth of President Trump's tax returns, citing what's been dubbed a "little-known provision" in tax code to do so.


Wallace pressed: "Will he tell the IRS not to release them though?"

In her speech before a Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, Omar said Muslims had "lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it".

"New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants - the President's empty threats won't change that", New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio said in a statement.

He said that the Treasury's legal office has begun meeting with lawyers in the Department of Justice, but that he has not personally spoken with the attorney general about Trump's taxes.


But Trump seemed ready to step up his fight with the cities, vowing to "give them an unlimited supply" of immigrants from the border. We don't want illegal immigration, we don't want people coming illegally across the border, " Scott said.
