Trump, again, says illegal immigrants will be 'given' to sanctuary cities, states

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin testifies before a House Financial Services Committee hearing on the

"The Committee's request raises serious issues concerning the legislative objective and the constitutional rights of American citizens", he added.

House Democrats are sharpening their focus on White House immigration adviser Stephen Miller, with key lawmakers saying he should be brought before congressional committees to testify about his role in recent policy controversies.

In a Saturday letter that was obtained by CNN, House Ways and Means chairman Richard Neal told IRS commissioner Charles Rettig that "none of the concerns raised can legitimately be used to deny the committee's request".

Neal asked the IRS last Wednesday to turn over six years of Trump's tax returns within a week.

"If the Radical Left Democrats all of a sudden don't want the Illegal Migrants in their Sanctuary Cities (no more open arms), why should others be expected to take them into their communities", he said in another tweet later on Friday.

The letter said the plan seemed aimed at targeting Democratic areas "in a freaky and unlawful attempt to score political points", citing news reports.

"The president has told people close to him that the attempt to receive his returns were an invasion of his privacy and a further example of the Democratic-led" witch hunt" - that he's called special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation - meant to damage him. Many moderate Republicans urged Trump to avoid harsh immigration talk in the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections, warning that it could hurt the party's chances, especially in the suburbs. "We feel as if this is clearly important to our own oversight duties", Kildee said.

He said the administration is "analyzing the law" and consulting with the Department of Justice over whether the returns must be turned over. "It doesn't say'for everyone except the president'".

Asked again later because of his response to the demand of Neal, Trump didn't provide an immediate answer. He has the option of eventually seeking to subpoena the records or to go to court if Treasury does not comply, but it's not clear he'll adopt a more confrontational approach just yet. "I'll let you know fast".

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin markers with lawmakers at the afternoon.

"My guess is a lot of them don't do their own taxes".

He asked in seven times for the documents, putting an April 10 deadline.

The IRS has a policy of auditing the tax returns of sitting presidents and vice presidents,"yet little is known about the efficacy of this program", Neal said in the statement. The president outside attorney also did not respond to your request for opinion.
