Sanders: Sending migrants to sanctuary cities not top choice

He said he was targeting so-called sanctuary cities, which have municipal laws to shield undocumented immigrants. "We want legal immigration".

Nadler, who has served the House of Representatives since 1992, is Chair of the House Judiciary Committee. Salt Lake City is not considered a sanctuary city.

They told The Associated Press that President Donald Trump considered the proposal amid his ongoing battling Democrats over border wall funding. Cities, counties and some states have a range of informal policies as well as laws that qualify as "sanctuary" positions.

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted, "Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very risky immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only".

"The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy - so this should make them very happy!", he said.

"Democrats say we must have open borders and that illegal immigrants have a right to be in this country at all costs", Gidley said told The New York Times.

Nadler, who has been one of the top Democrats in Washington pushing for a full release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian Federation, has feuded with Trump for more than 30 years, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

The comments from the chief White House spokesperson came a day after Trump asserted on Twitter that "the US has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities". Homeland Security and ICE lawyers quickly rejected the proposal, according to the people, on the grounds that it was complicated, too expensive and a misuse of funds, two of the people said. "He shouldn't use them as what he imagines as retribution to political opponents in various areas".

According to a 2015 Federal Bureau of Investigation crime data analysis report by Tom Wong, a professor of political science at the University of California at San Diego, sanctuary cities see 15 percent less crime than those deemed non-sanctuary cities.

ICE Deputy Director Matt Albence denied that the White House pressured immigration officials to implement the idea.

"I was asked my opinion and provided it, and my advice was heeded", he said in a statement.

The Trump administration is dealing with an ever-increasing number of Central American migrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border that has pushed the immigration system to the breaking point.

The idea of pressing immigration authorities to embrace the plan - which critics called an effort to use migrants as pawns to go after political opponents - was first reported in the Washington Post.

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, Ariz., and San Antonio, Texas.
