Trump: Migrants Will Go to 'Sanctuary Cities'

Monday, 15 April 2019 12:37 PM EDT

President Donald Trump said Monday that his proposal to send migrants to so-called sanctuary cities is taking effect.

Trump tweeted:

"Those Illegal Immigrants who can no longer be legally held (Congress must fix the laws and loopholes) will be, subject to Homeland Security, given to Sanctuary Cities and States!"

It was unclear, however, whether the Department of Homeland Security is taking any steps to implement the contentious plan. Lawyers there had previously told the White House that the idea was unfeasible and a misuse of funds. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already strapped for cash.

The White House and Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday.
