House Committee Sends New Letter to IRS Demanding Trump’s Tax Returns

Lock him up!’ Calls grow for Mnuchin to be jailed for interfering with the release of Trump’s taxes

Democratic Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf says she's willing to take the illegal detainees that the Trump administration mused about sending to sanctuary cities like her own.

"For the city of Chicago, which routinely gets asylum seekers at our airports and coming in through other ways, we've been dealing with these issues, really for decades", Lightfoot said, adding that city officials must be "very clear in speaking our values". "If they don't want to serve our Nation by taking care of them, why should other cities & towns?"

FILE PHOTO: House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal discusses his request to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig for copies of President Donald Trump's tax returns as he talks to reporters at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., April 4, 2019. But Trump said Friday he was still considering the idea.

Immigration is Donald Trump's signature issue. He was separated from his daughter, now seven, by federal authorities at the border at El Paso, Texas, past year and jailed for three months before being released and making his way to live with his mother in San Jose, California.

To him, the biggest problem is the high cost of living.

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) said Trump is not trying to find a solution to the immigration crisis but only of advancing a ploy to motivate his political base before the 2020 presidential elections.

"My guess is majority don't do their own taxes, and I certainly don't trust them to look through the decades of success that the President has and determine anything", she said, adding that attempts to obtain the returns are "a disgusting overreach".

"Not just logistically, legally", Stephanopoulos interjected.

While many of these states have multiple counties/cities that are designated sanctuaries, there is only one city or county listed for Ohio, Nevada, Mississippi, Minnesota, and Louisiana.

Flights chartered by ICE cost about $7,785 U.S. per flight hour, according to the agency. Sanders also jabbed at members of Congress, saying they weren't "smart enough" to analyze the returns. "It's just alarming that they are spending so much effort and so much time to engage in political theater".

"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".

Previous congressional hearings have painted a picture of confusion and chaos at the border over separations, with myriad agencies with a stake in the process - including Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services - not properly tracking who had been separated, nor instituting a process for how to eventually reunite them.

"We're simply not going to allow Colorado's public safety to be held hostage to the Trump administration or any administration", Polis said at the time the suit was filed.
