Trump says migrants to go to 'sanctuary cities'

Trump says migrants to go to 'sanctuary cities'

Neal asked for Trump's returns a week ago.

Earlier this month, Neal wrote to the IRS asking for six years of the President's personal and business tax returns.

He said Treasury respects lawmakers' oversight duties and would make sure taxpayer protections would be "scrupulously observed, consistent with my statutory responsibilities" as the department reviews the request.

Other Omar critics have focused exclusively on that one single line, accusing her of trivializing the inhumanity of September 11 but not mentioning the rest of her speech.

Oakland Mayor Libby Shaaf responded to Trump with a tweet saying, "It's time to stop fanning hate and division".

"Trump told reporters Wednesday that he" would not be inclined" to provide his tax returns on the committee. No federal statute bars individuals under audit from releasing their tax returns.

"Mnuchin stated Neal's request raised important questions of" constitutional scope of forensic investigative authority, the legitimacy of the asserted legislative goal, as well as the constitutional rights of American citizens".

Trump broke with decades of tradition for candidates by refusing to release his income tax filings throughout his 2016 effort.

Sanders said that Trump has sought to "savagely" cut Medicaid and eliminate pre-existing conditions. "Frankly, the people don't care".




In addition to the document requests, House Democrats are eyeing White House official Stephen Miller as a top target for an investigation.

Democrats do not expect the Treasury to comply but they have not sketched out their next steps. He has the option of eventually seeking to subpoena the records or to go to court if Treasury does not comply, but it's not clear he'll adopt a more confrontational approach just yet.

The Department of Homeland Security has said that Congress has not appropriated any money to transport the migrants from the border to far-flung sanctuary cities across the US, while the Immigration and Custom Enforcement agency has called the idea an "unnecessary operational burden".

"Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very unsafe immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities only", he wrote on Twitter.

The revenue department, which reports to the United States treasury, is in no mood to comply, taking the lead from the White House which has unequivocally said it will never allow for the President's tax returns to be turned over to congress "No, never", acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has said.

But the IRS has said that he could release the returns even if they are under audit.

Neal argues that the language in the law unambiguously mandates the IRS to provide the tax returns to the committee upon request, that the IRS can not legally question the committee's objective, and that "concerns about what the committee may do with the tax returns and return information are baseless".

"Given the seriousness of these issues, which bear no connection to actual tax administration, we have begun consultation with the Department of Justice to ensure that our response is fully consistent with the law and the Constitution", Mnuchin writes. People with knowledge of the discussions say it was first brought to Homeland Security from White House staff in November, and was again discussed in February but was put down after DHS officials reviewed it and found it was too costly, a misuse of funds and would be too timely.
