Trump has 10 days to turn over tax returns, Democrats say

White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’

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.

"Please know that, if you fail to comply, your failure will be interpreted as a denial of my request", Neal wrote to Rettig three days after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the administration would miss Neal's original April 10 deadline as he consulted with the Department of Justice. Those concerns lack merit. "Moreover, judicial precedent commands that none of the concerns raised can legitimately be used to deny the committee's request".

"At no time has the President indicated, asked, directed or pressured the Acting Secretary to do anything illegal".

"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will and certainly not violence towards anyone, but the president is absolutely and should be calling out the congresswoman for her not only one time but history of anti-Semitic comments", Sanders told Stephanopoulos. "And I think it's more important to the American taxpayers that we get this right than we hit an arbitrary deadline".

"This just shows the President's contempt for law, another instance of the President's contempt for law", Nadler said on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper. 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.

Earlier this week, Mnuchin wrote to Neal that he would handle the request instead of the IRS commissioner, emphasizing that the request has an "unprecedented nature".

After making the extraordinary gesture, the Pope told them: "I am asking you as a brother to stay in peace". Welby had proposed the idea of the retreat to the pope. "Peace is possible", the pope told the leaders.

"We're seeing record numbers of apprehension, large groups and numbers in custody and we've arrived at the breaking point", Border Patrol official Brian Hastings said in a statement. "Once this Pandora's box is opened, the ensuing tit-for-tat will do lasting damage to our nation", William S. Consovoy said in a letter to the Treasury's general counsel. Police in New York, Baltimore and Seattle, Wash., rarely, if ever, disclose information about when suspected criminals in the US illegally will be released from custody.

But on Saturday, he said the administration would respond by the revised deadline.

The idea of pressing immigration authorities to embrace the plan - which critics called an effort to use migrants as pawns to go after political opponents - was first reported in the Washington Post.

"The Committee's request raises serious issues concerning the constitutional scope of Congressional investigative authority, the legitimacy of the asserted legislative goal, and the constitutional right of American citizens", Mnuchin wrote. The President has amplified his rhetoric on illegal immigration in recent weeks, even threatening to close the southern border if Congress and Mexico don't take action.

As part of a plan to force Democrats to enforce more strict immigration laws, Trump threatened to engulf sanctuary cities with undocumented immigrants, sending them by bus.

"It's another misuse of presidential power against the law", he added.
