welcome back at 10:17. the president offered pretty strange solution to immigration problems this week when he floated the idea of sending asylum seeking migrants to sanctuary cities. >> the white house says the idea was rejected but the president is still say he may do it. moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd joining us now. what is the strategy here? >> it appears to try to just see if thery democrats will uncle and come to -- because everythi has been -- one tool in the toolbox, a hammer. this started with shutting down the government, then the national emergency, then threatening theborder, now it is this. ironically this is actually part of a temporary solution. if you look at what we're dealing with now, the asylum system is veoverrun, we got a
backlog of cases to adjudicate about whether they get asylum or not. they'll need to be a place to -- for these folks to thlive. will actually be part of the asking for cities and mayors and governors to volunteer.t doing this way and make it -- feels like a weaponization of the government and all of this. so it certainly doesn't make it as if democrats want to help. and i think this is what is frustrating the situation, we'lr kellyanne conway, she presents a verynveasonable sation about, like, where to have this begin and you just sit there and say, d but you't sound like the president. >> right. >> that's where it, i think, he himself messes up their e process. >> we continue to hear about migrants who are coming to the. bord >> not only that, there is evidence that he's making -- thh ats to shut the border have been used as advertiseme bs to say yter come now, they're shutting the border. it is making the crisis>> -- wow, interesting. let's turn our attention to the
mueller report. are we expected to see a more redacted version or can you get more redacted? >> where are we? >> here's what i'm assuming, the fight this week will be over what's been redacte and not over what we saw. the level ofendistrust betwe congressional democrats and the new attorney general is pretty high. after there was already some b skeptici how he summarized the mueller report and his decision to call -- to use a presidential bucking t point,he word spying, sort of whatever threads of trust were left are gone. so demoats, ithink, will enter this with a presumption of he's overredacted. and so i assume this debate about the mueller report will last pretty much until we're alive. i feel like we're going to be fighting to see the rest of the mueller report, the same way we're waiting for allf the archives on the kennedy assassination with the cia. >> interesting to see if it ever fully get up, right? >> you know --
>> this is a reminder that when government wants to keep it secret, they can't. >> tt's true. that's absolutely true. >> tell us who you have o comin the show. >> kellyanne conway and presidential candidate of the week, jay inslee, the of washington state, in studio, he's running on a climate change focus. >>is name is entirely too ea ll. >> pete btigieg, you're doing good today. >> beto. >> beto? >> not beto. >> beto. >> we could go through this, we ave a whole pronunciation guide. it is donald. most people call him the donald. it is dona. >> like target. >> trump. trump. >> a reminder, you can sees" "mt the pr comes up every sunday at :30 here after n"news 4 today." should be a good show. from chuck to clay. >> yes. >> we'reki t about weather alert today. >> yes.

this is a serious storm systeng mour way. we have light rain showers just to our north and west of winchester, hagerstown, picking up a drop of rain. for most rt, we remain dry. as we talked about the line of storms, think two major lines will move across the area. the first one between a 6:00 7:00, 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. it moves across the area. it should be a heavy rainmaker if nothing else. this second system, everyone, will move quickly across the et region,en 11:00, 12:00 and 1:00 a.m. depending. by 3:00 a.m., already movingo the east of our area. so for us, we're going to keep an eye on that cold air behind the system, everyone. even out to our west, across potoma hylands, picking up cold air. what we should expect from bothy systems, h rain, strong winds, as of now, little early to start thinking about tornadoes. we'll keep our eyes on the sky, stay with news 4 throughout the with that, here is the forecast, everyone. a stormy sunday. nday night. a windy monday.
