Libby Schaaf, Oakland mayor, calls Donald Trump's bluff on sanctuary cities threat

Source Yahoo Finance

A new letter by Rep. Richard Neal, the House Ways and Means Committee chairman, comes after the Trump administration asked for more time to consider his initial request last week.

Scott acknowledged the president's frustration over a lack of progress on addressing the influx of migrants, but said the administration had to comply with the law.

He also accused President Donald Trump of having "manufactured chaos" at the border with his immigration policies.

"This is all about political partisanship", she told Wallace.

"I never offered Pardons to Homeland Security Officials, never ordered anyone to close our Southern Border (although I have the absolute right to do so, and may if Mexico does not apprehend the illegals coming to our Border), and am not "frustrated". There are constitutional issues", Mnuchin said. The family traveled from Guatemala to reach the U.S.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday" with host Chris Wallace, Sanders addressed the ongoing fight by Democrats to obtain and publicize the returns as a "dangerous, risky road".

This has been his excuse since the time he jumped in the presidential race in 2016, for breaking with a decades-long tradition of U.S. presidents and nominees releasing their tax returns.

On Monday, lawmakers in NY proposed a bill that would allow the commissioner of the state's Department of Taxation and Finance to turn over state tax returns if requested by certain congressional committees.

Mr. Trump noted in a tweet that Mayor Libby Schaaf had denounced as an "abuse of power and public resources" an idea he was publicly toying with to send detained illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities.

"We hereby demand that they be taken care of at the highest level, especially by the State of California, which is well known (for) its poor management & high taxes!" he posted.

Earlier this month, Neal formally requested the last six years' worth of President Trump's tax returns, citing what's been dubbed a "little-known provision" in tax code to do so.

Neal tells IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig, a Trump appointee, that he has two weeks to respond.

The new deadline brings the standoff closer a battle in federal court.

Neal's latest letter sets the stage for a further escalation in the conflict between Congress and the White House, as legal experts have suggested that an outright denial of their request by Mnuchin could be followed by subpoenas or a lawsuit in federal court.

US President Donald Trump speaks to the press, and congratulates Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his election victory, prior to departing on Marine One from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC, April 10, 2019.

Gidley said the White House has put forward multiple proposals to stem the flow of illegal immigration, but Democrats have not "come to the table".

Neal's request for the returns of a sitting president is unprecedented, and legal experts say its success or failure may depend on a court ruling about the committee's legislative objective for seeking the documents.
