The mayor of the US city of Oakland on Saturday urged President Donald Trump to stop "fanning hate" over his disputed immigration policy.

After reports said the Trump administration had twice considered and rejected a plan to bus illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities to retaliate against his political foes, the president embraced the idea on Friday. We're working with DHS, we're working with ICE, to try and make sure that happens because, after all, it's what they want.

"What does scare us?"

An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to "sanctuary cities" to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country.

"The implications of this is way beyond, in my mind, a congressional oversight issue and a president issue", Munchin told reporters at the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings on Saturday, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The president's strategy, however, relies on a risky and relatively narrow path for victory, hinged on demonizing Trump's eventual opponent and juicing turnout among his most avid supporters in Florida, Pennsylvania and the Upper Midwest - the same areas that won him the White House but where his popularity has waned since he was elected.

Meanwhile, mayors of some sanctuary cities have reacted to Trump's apparent threat by saying they would welcome the migrants. I'm from a state that we love immigrants, but we want legal immigration. Our immigrant neighbors make up more than 18 percent of our population, and 21 percent of our population speaks a language other than English at home. "They tend to open up businesses and employ other people". They create art and culture. "We're not enforcing our laws".

But, she added: "The president is absolutely and should be calling out the congresswoman for her not only one-time but history of anti-Semitic comments". "Instead of threatening immigrant families and the cities that welcome them, this president should spend a little bit more time trying to learn from us".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday she has taken steps to ensure the safety of Rep. Ilhan Omar after President Donald Trump's retweet of a video that purports to show the Minnesota Democrat being dismissive of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

"This is an option on the table", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said of the proposal in an interview on ABC's "This Week".

Schaaf was responding to a tweet by Trump Saturday afternoon when the USA president seemed to mock Schaaf's earlier statement accusing Trump of planning to send undocumented immigrants to sanctuary cities. The GOP congressman claimed on Fox News Sunday he'd prefer another route to Trump's suggestion, but called it a "good bargaining point" to force congressional Democrats to change immigration and asylum laws.
