Sanders: Sending migrants to sanctuary cities not top choice

Sanders: Sending migrants to sanctuary cities not top choice

On Friday, the President tweeted that he is giving "serious consideration" to sending "illegal immigrants" into sanctuary cities.

Trump confirmed on Twitter that he wanted to transport people detained in his immigration crackdown at the US-Mexico border to sanctuary cities, an informal designation for localities that refrain from assisting federal immigration authorities in detaining undocumented immigrants living in the country. Salt Lake City is not considered a sanctuary city.

"Following the President's tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff", Pelosi said in a statement.

Trump tweeted: "Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very risky immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only".

President Donald Trump isn't ashamed for criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., over 9/11 remarks that've been condemned as dismissive - and will keep "calling her out and holding her accountable", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Sunday. "New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants - the President's empty threats won't change that".

"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.

White House senior adviser Stephen Miller urged senior DHS officials to make the plan a reality, the source said.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said, "We would welcome these migrants with open arms, just as we welcomed Syrian refugees, just as we welcomed Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria and just as we welcome Rohingya refugees fleeing genocide in Myanmar".

Families being held at the border are already going through a hard process and for them to be dropped off wherever the Trump administration wants is "incredibly inappropriate and really dehumanizing", Garza said.

The Trump administration is dealing with an ever-increasing number of Central American migrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border that has pushed the immigration system to the breaking point. Trump claimed it wouldn't make sense to release his tax returns while, he said, they are under audit.

Jaramillo called it more "posturing" and "showmanship from the commander in chief" but not a viable policy or solution to immigration issues.

Flights chartered by ICE cost about $7,785 USA per flight hour, according to the agency. Some of these cities have robust networks of non-profit legal groups that could help them strengthen their legal cases to stay.

Those facilities would be licensed by each state and likely take several months to be approved and opened, separating them from the rapidly expanding emergency shelter at Homestead, Florida, and the now-closed tent facility at Tornillo, Texas.

In response, some cities have banished ICE from jails where agents could easily pick up immigration violators.
