President Donald Trump says he’s “giving strong considerations” to placing “Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only.”
He tweeted that on Friday hours after the White House said the idea was no longer under consideration.
Trump is accusing Democrats of failing to overhaul immigration laws and tweeting that, “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”
The White House had said hours earlier that it had considered a plan to release detained immigrants into sanctuary cities but the plan had been quickly scuttled by lawyers and dropped.
Sanctuary cities are places where authorities don’t work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to round up those living in the country illegally.
San Francisco is included, as well as other Bay Area counties including Santa Clara.
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo responded to the possibility of Trump releasing immigrant detainees into sanctuary cities by saying “In San Jose and Silicon Valley, we happily welcome any families willing to endure such extraordinary hardship and to take such tremendous risk to endeavor to be part of our great country.”
