Transcript for WH says sanctuary cities plan 'on the table'
Ginger, thank you very much. To the white house now, and the president's push to bus migrants to sanctuary cities. Dechlts rejected the idea as costly and illegal. I asked press secretary Sarah Sanders why the president continues to push the proposal. Look. We have -- that was brought up at a staff level, and it was determined at that time that logistically, there were a lot of challenges and it probably didn't make sense to move forward and the idea didn't go further. Not just logistically, The president likes it. We're looking to see if there are options that make it possible, and doing it in a full and thorough and extensive review. Let's bring in Cecilia Vega for more on this. Cecilia, at another point, she said it's not the president's plan. How seriously are they taking this? Reporter: George, if it's any indication of where the president's head is this morning, his very first tweet out this morning is to send marketing advice to Boeing. Sarah Sanders said sending migrants to sanctuary cities wouldn't be their first choice. They have been roundly contradicting the administration on this one saying adamantly there is not a plan in place to enforce this idea. It's not one they're taking seriously up. Mention, George, the Democrats say this is dead on arrival, and they're suggesting they might want the architect of many of these controversial immigration policies coming out of this white house to come before congress to testify. And Cecilia, the attorney general, William Barr, expected to release the redacted version of that report later this week. What is the white house doing to prepare? Reporter: The official line has been, still is, case closed. Full exoneration for the president, but privately we know they are bracing for the release of this report. We know that they have been briefed on it. The president said just a couple of days ago, he had not read the full report, but sources are telling our team that there are very serious concerns about the unredacted parts of this report that could be coming out in just a matter of days. New fgs in on tommics like the firing of James Comey and obstruction of justice. The question is what congress does with this. Thank you. Robin?
