White House: Sending migrants to sanctuary cities not a top choice

Vice President's office
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders defended Trump earlier Sunday, saying the president has a duty to highlight Omar's history of making comments that others deem anti-Semitic or otherwise offensive and that he wished no "ill will" upon the first-term lawmaker.
Trump had telegraphed his Treasury secretary's move Wednesday, telling reporters he wouldn't release his tax returns since he's still under audit.
But in a tweet late Saturday, Trump insisted the USA has "the absolute right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities".
Democrats want to review Trump's taxes as part of their investigations into possible conflicts of interest posted by his continued ownership of extensive business interests, even as he serves the public as president.
The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders.
After reports said the Trump administration had twice considered and rejected a plan to bus illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities to retaliate against his political foes, the president embraced the idea on Friday.
And it could actually make it more hard for Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to arrest people facing deportation, because so-called sanctuary cities do not work with ICE. "So you can't just say that today someone is looking at me unusual and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant", Omar explained.
"They do these watered down push-backs that, frankly, they feel like give them enough cover, but aren't really getting the job done", Sanders said. After fierce backlash from across the political spectrum, she apologized, but also suggested she was being criticized for speaking her mind.
The letter marks the latest in a yearslong effort by Democrats to get access to Trump's financial documents.
This included a tweet that juxtaposed a speech by Rep. Omar with footage of the September 11th terrorist attacks. "The president wants us to explore it again, so that's being done and they're doing a complete and thorough review".
Sanders said, "The president has been clear from the beginning".
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.
"In fact, we have always welcomed people who have faced tremendous hardships around the world".
Then the president claimed that she does not actually want the detained immigrants to be released into her city.
