No legal way to release immigrants into 'sanctuary cities': Committee chairman

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with World War II veterans including Paul Kriner and Floyd Wigfield in the Oval Office of the White House

Top House Democrat steps up demand for Trump's tax returns

She added it would take "15 minutes" to fix illegal immigration if only Congress would sit down with Trump and "just come up with the best solutions so that we don't have to do this".

Meanwhile, Sen. Rick Scott, Florida Republican, said sanctuary cities themselves are illegal, but he also stressed it would be improper for the president to instruct anyone to break the law.

"With immigrants being less likely to commit crimes than the USA -born population, and with sanctuary jurisdictions being safer and more productive than non-sanctuary jurisdictions, the data damns this proposal as a politically motivated stunt that seeks to play politics with peoples' lives", said George Gascon, district attorney for San Francisco.

"It's part of a pattern of conduct we certainly have to take a look at after we see the Mueller report", Nadler said.

Trump has staked his presidency on his insistence that the United States is being overrun by migrants and asylum seekers.

The White House defended Trump earlier Sunday, saying the president has a duty to highlight Omar's history of making comments that others find offensive and that he wished no "ill will" upon the first-term lawmaker. "But we have to comply with every law".

He continued: "The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy-so this should make them very happy!" "If they don't want to serve our Nation by taking care of them, why should other cities & towns?"

On Saturday, he said his administration has "the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities". "They do these watered down push backs that frankly they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done".

In an interview with "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace, Sanders said that Democrats were treading a "dangerous road" and that their request for Trump's tax returns is "all about political partisanship".

Trump "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", she said. "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".

George Gascon, district attorney for San Francisco, said: "With immigrants being less likely to commit crimes than the US-born population, and with sanctuary jurisdictions being safer and more productive than non-sanctuary jurisdictions, the data damns this proposal as a politically motivated stunt that seeks to play politics with peoples' lives".

Since his first days in office, Trump has attempted to reign in sanctuary cities or states, arguing that they create security threats for the American citizens living there. "If they reverse the decision and send people here, I'd be happy to have them".
