White House denies Trump inciting violence against Muslim lawmaker

Press secretary Sarah Sanders says President Donald Trump wants to explore the twice-rejected proposal of sending migrants only to 'sanctuary cities, ' but it is not his preferred solution to fix the straining immigration system.

"New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants - the president's empty threats won't change that", New York mayor Bill DeBlasio said in a statement.

"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will, certainly not violence towards anyone", Sanders told ABC News' "This Week" show.

In a Saturday tweet, Trump suggested that his plan to send migrants and refugees to sanctuary cities would intimidate Democrats into changing their approach to United States immigration "fast". "If they don't want to serve our Nation by taking care of them, why should other cities & towns?"

Trump broke with a long-established norm during the 2016 elections by refusing to release his income tax returns, as most presidents have done since the 1970s even though it is not required by law.

Department of Homeland Security officials were reported to have pushed back against the transfers of detained migrants as illegal, impractical and counter-productive.

"We looked at it and said, where are the logical places to kind of spread the wealth, if you will, and places like San Francisco, for example, or a sanctuary city, they are designed and set up specifically to have people there who aren't here legally", he said.

The White House appears to be anxious enough about Donald Trump's new baseline of erratic, lunacy-infused declarations this week to dispatch not one, but both of the administration's most practiced liars to blow smoke up the collective American behind.

Omar has been at the center of an escalating row after a clip emerged of her characterizing the deadliest attack on U.S. soil as "some people did something".

"It's not political retribution", Hogan Gidley, the White House Deputy Press Secretary, told NPR. "We're looking to see if there are options that make it possible and doing a full and thorough extensive review". "Instead of threatening immigrant families and the cities that welcome them, this president should spend a little bit more time trying to learn from us".

"We have a massive number of people that are already here".

Whether or not the IRS has to release President Donald Trump's tax returns remains "far from clear", according to at least one tax policy expert.

"The president has no right to spend money appropriated by Congress for other purposes to ship immigrants all over the country", Rep. Jerrold Nadler said on CNN's "State of the Union."

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.
