Philadelphia mayor calls Trump migrant idea 'disgraceful'

White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’ Trump confirms he'd like to send asylum seekers to sanctuary cities
Bennie Garza | 14 April, 2019, 23:27

It was not clear whether the president was joking, and a Homeland Security spokesman said in a statement: "At no time has the president indicated, asked, directed or pressured the acting secretary to do anything illegal". I don't think these are simple issues.

The Onion is a satirical news outlet whose articles cover real and fictional current events.

Neal's latest letter sets the stage for further escalation in the conflict between Congress and the White House, as legal experts have suggested that an outright denial of their request by Mnuchin could be followed by subpoenas or a lawsuit in federal court.

It was just one of many ideas tossed around by the White House as Trump expresses concern about an ever-increasing number of Central American migrant families crossing the Southern border.

"I don't understand why the president's attracted to it at all", Stephanopoulos said.

Trump had telegraphed his Treasury secretary's move Wednesday, telling reporters he wouldn't release his tax returns since he's still under audit. "I'm sure we'll respond by that deadline".

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

For what it's worth, Trump doesn't do his own taxes either.

The president's tweets came the morning after The Washington Post first reported that the administration had at one point considered sending immigrants in the US illegally to cities the administration has deemed "sanctuary cities".

Transporting immigrants on buses or trains would "evoke a lot of imagery to Japanese internment", he said.

"This is not a game this is people that are suffering", he said.

ICE arrests people in the United States illegally and also manages migrants who present themselves at border crossings and ask for asylum.

Trump on Friday tweeted a video that juxtaposed the snippet, to a backdrop of menacing music, with images of the destruction wrought by the hijacked planes slamming into the Twin Towers, which once dominated New York's skyline.

In that letter, Mnuchin also questioned the scope of Congress's investigative authority and Neal's stated reason for the request - that he wants them to insure that the IRS is properly auditing presidents.

Meanwhile, Sen. Rick Scott, Florida Republican, said sanctuary cities themselves are illegal, but he also stressed it would be improper for the president to instruct anyone to break the law.

"It really looks like the administration is willing to play with people's lives to score political points", he said.

In a string of Twitter posts, the president hit back at The Times and said their reporting contained not a single kernel of truth.

At least two versions the plan were considered.

Sanctuary cities - like Philadelphia, New York and San Francisco - are places where authorities don't work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to round up those living in the country illegally.

But White House officials are emphasizing that the plan "never went anywhere".
