US President Donald Trump 'strongly looking' at releasing migrants in Democratic cities

White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin calls House Ways and Means Committee Chair Richard Neal's new deadline to provide the president's tax returns "arbitrary".

In his letter, Neal argues that the IRS has an "unambiguous legal obligation" to turn over the returns under section 6103 of the tax code, which states that the treasury secretary "shall furnish" a request from the congressional committees with tax oversight.

The Washington Post reported Thursday night that about the plans, disclosed in emails released to the Post and the New York Times. ICE's enforcement and removal operations have sometimes ensnared people who have been in the US for decades, working and raising families.

"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will and certainly not violence towards anyone, but the president is absolutely and should be calling out the congresswoman for her not only one time but history of anti-Semitic comments", Sanders told Stephanopoulos. Democrats based their request on the panel's jurisdiction over IRS enforcement of the tax laws regarding US presidents.

"I don't know anything about it, but again, it's just another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a county, as a people, to address who we are: a nation of immigrants", Pelosi said Friday according to The Hill.

"We should have open arms to the human species the human race", he said.

"They are telling us you can not keep family units who come here illegally and unlawfully at the southern border".

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


Additionally, Mnuchin did not say whether the Treasury Department would complete it's legal review of the request by the April 23rd deadline.

The president's latest move on illegal immigration comes days after US officials said they arrested or denied entry to over 103,000 people along the border with Mexico in March, more than twice as many as the same period in 2018.

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

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.

"I never offered Pardons to Homeland Security Officials, never ordered anyone to close our Southern Border (although I have the absolute right to do so, and may if Mexico does not apprehend the illegals coming to our Border), and am not "frustrated".

Since many such jurisdictions are Democratic strongholds, the proposal was seen by critics of Trump as an attempt by the president to punish Democrats for refusing to support funding for the construction of a wall on the southern USA border.

Trump appears prepared to fight this to the Supreme Court. But Republicans have dismissed his request as political and unprecedented.

Mnuchin revealed in congressional testimony that White House lawyers consulted with Treasury on Trump's tax returns.
