President Donald Trump says he is thinking strongly "keeping illegal immigrants in the Sanctuaries cities". "
He tweeted that on Friday, hours after the White House said that the idea was no longer under consideration.
Trump is accusing the Democrats not to review immigration laws and tweeted “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy - so this should make them very happy!”
The White House had said hours ago that he had considered plans to to release detained immigrants into sanctuary cities but the plan had been quickly scuttled by lawyers and dropped.
Sanctuary cities are those places where officials do not work with immigration and customs control to keep illegal occupants in the country.
The plan was criticized by critics as an effort to use migrants as pawns to persecute political opponents. The House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, calls the plan "disrespectful."
