The debate over sending detained immigrants to ‘sanctuary cities’

The Washington Post reported that the White House considered sending asylum seekers and those who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico to so-called sanctuary cities, jurisdictions that don’t comply with federal immigration enforcement law. The move was reportedly a way to retaliate against political opponents from those areas. The White House said the idea was “floated and rejected,” but President Trump tweeted that it was still being considered.
