  • White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’

However, CNN and the Post both reported that the DHS and White House denied the proposal was still under consideration - before Trump revived it on Friday.

"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", he wrote on Twitter.

The Republican president tweeted that his antagonists should be "very happy" about the idea given their "open borders, open arms policy".

Friday, President Trump put out a series of tweets regarding a plan to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities throughout the country.

A Homeland Security spokesperson played down the reported idea, saying it was "floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion".

Department of Homeland Security lawyers quickly rejected the proposal, and it was dropped, according to news reports.

As the President has made curbing immigration a major focus of his presidency, he has expressed a desire to punish sanctuary cities - jurisdictions which limit the cooperation of local law enforcement with immigration authorities. The President has amplified his rhetoric on illegal immigration in recent weeks, even threatening to close the southern border if Congress and Mexico don't take action.

House Ways and Means Committee chair Richard Neal asked for six years of Trump tax returns earlier this month, pointing to the word "shall" in a statute that says the Treasury secretary must hand over tax returns when congressional tax committee heads ask for them.

"I don't know anything about it, but again, it's just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a county, as a people, to address who we are: a nation of immigrants", Pelosi said Friday according to The Hill.

Pelosi's district lies entirely within San Francisco, a sanctuary city. In 2017, he threatened to withhold law enforcement grants from such localities.

A spokeswoman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped Trump over the Thursday night reports.

"The cruelty of this administration never seems to end", said Julián Castro, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president ahead of the 2020 election. "Using human beings - including little children - as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal".

"I think the administration has been using the immigrant and refugee community in their political agenda for quite a while", Jaramillo said.

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University announced last week that an analysis found that immigrants in sanctuary cities are 20% less likely to be arrested out in the community than in cities without such policies.

"It's time to stop fanning hate and division @realDonaldTrump - I've been consistent and clear: #Oakland welcomes all, no matter where you came from or how you got here", she said on Twitter.
