Liccardo’s comment came in response to Trump’s tweets.
“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only … The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy — so this should make them very happy!”
The White House reportedly said earlier Friday the administration is no longer considering these measures, according to Kron4News.
