Trump’s sanctuary city idea could help migrants stay in the US

But the White House has said the documents will never be handed over to Democrats.

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.

The Trump administration is dealing with an ever-increasing number of Central American migrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border, an influx that has pushed the immigration system to the breaking point. The U.S. now houses thousands of migrants at the border, but is running out of beds and instead is releasing new arrivals into the U.S. on their promise to appear at asylum hearings that might not occur for two years.

"We're never going to change this with troops and walls at the border", Graham said of the USA immigration crisis.

Trump tweeted on Saturday evening that the USA had the "absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities". "And we are not afraid of diversity in the state of Washington".

"The crisis that we have - both from a national security and humanitarian standpoint - is if Democrats could step up and help the president fix the laws, this all could go away".

"We know that President Trump called the former Homeland Security secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, and she told him that her legal team reviewed it; simply not legal", he said, and asked "So, how can you continue to push this?" There he was reunited with his daughter, who attends public kindergarten.

"Not just logistically, legally", Stephanopoulos interjected.

The transportation of migrants arrested at the border to large and faraway cities would be burdensome and costly at a time when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) is stretched thin, having released over 125,000 migrants pending their immigration court date since 21 December. And claimed he would have released them if he was not under audit and that he is now under audit. The agency also uses commercial flights. As of April 11, the nation's three facilities to detain immigrant families were nowhere near capacity, including a Pennsylvania facility housing only nine immigrants. "It's just alarming that they are spending so much effort and so much time to engage in political theater".

She added, "I find what her comments to be absolutely disgraceful and unbefitting of a member of Congress and I think that it's a good thing that the president is calling her our for those comments".

"The Committee's request raises serious issues concerning the constitutional scope of Congressional investigative authority, the legitimacy of the asserted legislative goal, and the constitutional right of American citizens", Mnuchin wrote.

Trump's controversial tweets over immigrants have drawn backfire from some sanctuary cities in the Bay Area.
