White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’

"The president heard the idea, he likes it, so - well, we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible, and doing a full and thorough and extensive review".

Trump responded Friday morning on Twitter, tweeting that the reports were true and officials have strongly considered placing immigrants in sanctuary cities.

"The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy - so this should make them very happy!" the president added, affirming that this would be a direct attack at Democrats.

In what is shaping up to be a bipartisan Capitol Hill standoff, Trump has declared that his tax documents "will never be handed over to Democrats", although laws covering the release of his returns unambiguously state that he is required to do so, if told to in writing.

Democrats have tried to block just about everything President Trump has initiated to deal with the crisis of illegal aliens invading the nation's southern border.

Immigration is Donald Trump's signature issue.

Scott acknowledged the president's frustration over a lack of progress on addressing the influx of migrants, but said the administration had to comply with the law. Currently, the state taxation department is not allowed to release them, but the bill would change that if it gets passed and signed into law.

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

U.S. President Donald Trump awaits the arrival of Egypt's President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi to the White House in Washington, U.S., April 9, 2019.

"We need leaders who can sit down together and find bipartisan solutions to the serious issues at the border and agreement on reforms to fix our broken immigration system", he said. He said that he was under audit and didn't intend to turn anything over until that process had been completed.

Transporting large groups of immigrants to distant cities would be expensive and burdensome for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is already strapped for cash.

Flights chartered by ICE cost about $7,785 U.S. per flight hour, according to the agency. "He's using the immigrants as pawns in his political game of chess".

At the same time, many "sanctuary" communities would likely welcome the immigrants in question. You can't keep them at detention facilities.

Under the Trump administration, ICE has significantly stepped up arrests, including of people who have no U.S. criminal records. The downside for the immigrants would be a high cost of living in the cities. "The Chairman is giving us a new deadline".

Mnuchin said that Treasury Department lawyers have been working "diligently" to research the issues involved and have been in contact with Justice Department attorneys.

According to the Center, these cities are able to intervene by "refusing to or prohibiting agencies from complying with ICE detainers, imposing unreasonable conditions on detainer acceptance, denying ICE access to interview incarcerated aliens, or otherwise impeding communication or information exchanges between their personnel and federal immigration officers".
