"The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it", she said, as she denounced Trump´s "authoritarian and fascist presidency".

And while his administration has taken steps to hold Russia accountable for its aggression, Trump himself has flummoxed national security officials by refusing to criticise Russian President Vladimir Putin, publicly siding with Putin over the U.S. intelligence community, and repeatedly undermining efforts to investigate Russia's interference in the USA electoral process.

"You talk about obstruction of justice, I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland California", Trump noted at the time. He added, Russia had been affected by online foreign actors in the past, and the Russian federation is constantly working to keep the economy and sensitive parts of the country safe. Even though he said he's just coming after criminals - they're coming after everybody.

As he heads into the 2020 race, Trump appears intent on maintaining his support with a base of voters galvanized by his hard-line approach to immigration even if he has failed to deliver on many of his key campaign pledges. Included in his risky tweet, the president also floated the idea of staying in office longer that what is constitutionally allowable because his supporters might "demand that I stay longer". ICE arrests in the US interior have been declining in recent months because so many agents are busy managing the record surge of migrant families across the southern border with Mexico.

Former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had rejected the plan because the policy of the department was to prioritize criminals for deportation, according to one United States official.

"Should adults be arrested without their children because they are at school, day care, summer camp or at a friend's house, it is possible parents could be deported while their children are left behind", the Post reported.

Morgan described the potential deportation of families as a way to reduce the incentive for migrants to travel to the United States.

"The Department of Defense Law of War Manual has codified cyber operations, which this current action falls within".

Trump has called it "an invasion", and has made the fight against illegal migration a central plank of his administration. But ICE is unlikely to quickly locate and remove vast numbers of migrants. But Trump later backtracked and said he misspoke after his comments provoked a backlash.

Schaaf responded late Monday to the president's tweet teasing the looming ICE roundups.

A U.S. official told Reuters that the administration will review the funding by April 2020.
