Sending Illegal Immigrants to Sanctuary Cities is an Option on the Table

Sending Illegal Immigrants to Sanctuary Cities is an Option on the Table

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".

Since many such jurisdictions are Democratic strongholds, the proposal was seen by critics of Trump as an attempt by the president to punish Democrats for refusing to support funding for the construction of a wall on the southern US border.

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.

Romero, 27, was separated from his daughter, now 7, by federal authorities at the US border at El Paso, Texas, previous year and jailed for three months before being released and making his way to live with his mother in San Jose, California.

Furthermore, many such locations have more resources to help migrants make their legal cases to stay in the USA than smaller cities, with some of the nation's biggest immigration advocacy groups based in San Francisco, New York City and Chicago. "Again, this is not the ideal situation". Rick Scott said Sunday that President Donald Trump's threat to place immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities might just be the President trying to "make everybody insane".

But the plan had already been eschewed twice. The people were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. "We have people working on it diligently".

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.

The Democratic-led House of Representatives is determined, however, to bring the President, his family and his businesses under more scrutiny.

"Those conversation have started, but it would be premature for me to conclude how long that will take, because as I've said these are complicated issues", said Mnuchin, who was speaking on the sidelines of the annual International Monetary Fund meeting in Washington. We relish it. It is the basis of our economic and cultural success.

Trump previously warned that he may have to close the Southern border amid a surge of illegal immigrants attempting to cross into the United States.

The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., questioned the legality of the proposal.

Trump said late Saturday on Twitter, "Democrats must change the Immigration Laws FAST".

Trump threatened on Friday to release detained undocumented immigrants into sanctuary cities while blaming the country's immigration laws on Democrats.

"I mean, maybe he's just saying this to make everybody insane", he said of Trump.

On Sunday, Scott said Trump - a known lover of cable network news, but particularly Fox News - may have only floated the idea of sending migrants to America's largest cities in order to troll CNN and others for his own entertainment.
