"Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very unsafe immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities only", he wrote on Twitter. "They do these watered down push backs that frankly they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done".

Sanders said the proposed policy would take burden off of border cities by sending the migrants to places "who constantly claim to want to have open borders and want to have an open city".

On Saturday night, she responded to Trump's attack with a clear message: "Oakland welcomes all".

Most recently, Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on Mexican cars imported to the United States if Mexico does not deter US-bound undocumented migrants from crossing through its territory, and has also threatened to close the southern border, according to a Sputnik report. Since Democrats have said they would welcome these individuals, "everybody gets a win out of it", she added.

"Here's a message to President Trump: Seattle is not afraid of immigrants and refugees", the mayor stated in her op-ed article.

We don't want illegal immigration, we don't want people coming illegally across the border, " Scott said.

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

Trump said on Friday he was considering sending illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, prompting US mayors to accept such an offer as the battle over border security rages. "The idea that the administration thought in any way that it would be acceptable to use families and children, human beings, as political retribution against their enemies should infuriate every American regardless of political affiliation".

"No, I don't" see a legal way to do this, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made several damning statements about Donald Trump's recent proposal to send migrants to so-called sanctuary cities, admitting that when the White House first considered it, they determined it "didn't make sense to go forward", and that even now, it's not even "our third choice".

"This is a risky unsafe road and frankly".

Democrats believe they have the power under IRS code 6103 to request Trump's tax information including, but not limited to his tax returns.

The Treasury Department missed an April 10 deadline last week set by Democrats to deliver the tax returns, and Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the department hadn't decided whether to comply with the request.

"My guess is majority don't do their own taxes, and I certainly don't trust them to look through the decades of success that the President has and determine anything".
