Press secretary Sarah Sanders tells "Fox News Sunday" she doesn't think House Democrats are equipped to examine the documents, which a key House committee is demanding under a 1920s law.

During her interview on Sunday, Sanders also stated that Trump wouldn't release his taxes "as long as [they're] under audit", continuing a line that the president has said to avoid making his returns public since he ran for president.

"On Saturday the president tweeted that ".So interesting to see the Mayor of Oakland and other Sanctuary Cities NOT WANT our now "detained immigrants" after release due to the ridiculous court ordered 20 day rule.

Department of Homeland Security officials were reported to have pushed back against the transfers of detained migrants as illegal, impractical and counter-productive.

President Donald Trump again threatened to send asylum seekers to sanctuary cities.

"If Democrats would step up and help the president fix the laws, this all could go away, we wouldn't be having this discussion, and that would be the best thing for the country and that would certainly be the best way to solve this crisis and fix this problem", Sanders told anchor George Stephanopoulos.

He said that the Treasury's legal office has begun meeting with lawyers in the Department of Justice, but that he has not personally spoken with the attorney general about Trump's taxes.

Critics warn migrant transfers would further burden already stretched immigration authorities while making it more hard to track those that have been unloaded in sympathetic jurisdictions.
