Seattle Mayor Responds to President Trump: My City 'Isn't Afraid of Immigrants'

White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’

President Donald Trump confirmed in tweets Friday reports that White House officials have considered releasing immigrant detainees in sanctuary cities in regions governed by Democrats, giving Democratic officials including Mayor Rahm Emanuel another opportunity to decry Trump immigration policies.

They were, after all, the ones calling for open borders, more immigrants and sanctuary cities - supposedly the places where the illegals are the most welcome.

While Neal has argued that the committee needs Trump's tax information in order to conduct oversight of the Presidential audit program, a program that is not enshrined in law, but instead has become a routine procedure at the IRS that when a new President comes into office, Sanders is arguing that the committee's use of the statute "has nothing to do with whether or not they're going to determine policy".

Against this backdrop, a number of mostly Democrat-run cities have enacted laws preventing their police forces from cooperating with federal immigration authorities and agencies like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

"I am shocked but not surprised that once again this president is playing a cynical game with people's lives in order to score political points", Jesse Arreguin, the mayor of Berkeley, California, said in a statement.

A Homeland Security spokesperson played down the reported idea, saying it was "floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion". It raises questions as to whether the administration, operationally, would even be able to handle the flow of migrants to sanctuary cities. Sacramento is a sanctuary city.

"I think the administration has been using the immigrant and refugee community in their political agenda for quite a while", Jaramillo said. He told Mr McAleenan he would pardon him if he were to find himself in trouble for blocking legal asylum-seekers, according to two people familiar with the conversation who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe a private exchange.

She noted that the city already has programs in place to help immigrants succeed while living in Seattle.

"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", Sanders said.

"As the acting deputy, I was not pressured by anyone at the White House on this issue", he said in a statement.

The Department of Health and Human Services said this week it had started scouting vacant properties that could be turned into facilities for holding migrant children in several cities, including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, and San Antonio.

He also has warned that if Mexico doesn't stop the flow of drugs and illegal aliens within the next year, he will shut down the border.

The plan, which was first reported by The Washington Post, is one of a litany of ideas being tossed around by an increasingly anxious White House in recent months.

Under the Trump administration, ICE has significantly stepped up arrests, including of people who have no United States criminal records.
