The US President has confirmed that he is “strongly considering” releasing illegal immigrants into cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration policies.
Donald Trump said he mat release illegal immigrants detained at the border into so-called “sanctuary cities.”
In a tweet, he said the policy should make the radical left “very happy” as they “always seems to have an open borders, open arms policy.”
The proposal has been criticised on both sides of the political divide with President Trump accused of trying to turn migrants into political pawns.

More than 70 politicians have written to the UK home secretary urging him to “champion” any attempt to send him to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations.
Sweden dropped the case against Mr Assange in 2017 – however the lawyer representing the complainant has suggested it could now be reopened.

Facebook spent almost €20m on boss Mark Zuckerberg's personal security last year.
Records show that is more than double what was spent the previous year.
Around €17.6m was spent on private security for the CEO and his family – while €2.3m went on private jets.
Facebook said Mr Zuckerberg is “synonymous” with the company and as result any negative sentiment it faces is “directly associated with, and often transferred” to him.
