Democrats request documents on White House 'sanctuary city' idea

Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin testifies during a House Financial Services Committee Hearing on Capitol Hill Democrats set new deadline on Trump tax returns

The following day, Trump confirmed the proposal, saying in a tweet that he was strongly considering it.

The request Massachusetts Rep. Richard Neal, who directs on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, is the first such requirement for a sitting president's tax advice in 45 decades.

According to the Post, the driving force behind the controversial policy that DHS officials felt compelled to report, was none other than Miller, who the newspaper said played a "key role" in the plan, which was reportedly first discussed a year ago.

Several immigration proposals, including some backed by the White House, failed to receive the necessary number of votes to pass Congress when Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already strapped for cash.

"Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says his division intends to" follow the law" and is reviewing a petition by a top House Democrat to provide President Donald Trump's tax returns to lawmakers.

President Trump on Monday announced illegal immigrants will be "given" to Sanctuary Cities and States, pending official decisions from the Department of Homeland Security.

Regarding the policy of targeting sanctuary cities - jurisdictions that do not fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities - for the release of undocumented immigrants, a congressional investigator told the Washington Post, "It was basically an idea that Miller wanted that nobody else wanted to carry out".

Last Sunday, Trump's acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, told Fox News Sunday that Democrats will "never" see Trump's taxes.

US officials say a flood of migrant families, largely from Central America, is overwhelming the southwestern border. It asks for them by May 3.

The chairmen of the House Judiciary, Oversight and Homeland Security Committees have asked the White House and Department of Homeland Security for any communications concerning the potential transfer and release of immigrants detained at the southern border to various cities across the country.

"They will speak to my attorneys; they will speak to the attorney general", Trump said at the White House, referring to Attorney General William Barr, whom he said.

Democrats insist that getting the tax filings of Trump drops in their mandate of congressional oversight.
