that particular area take care of it. >> reporter: frustrated at the border, the president is looking inlanld taking aim e -- inlanld aim atities who oppose his plan for illegal immigration. his proposal, bus migrants deined at the border into sanctuary cities, largely democratic enclaves like new york, cndcago san francisco, house speaker nancy pelosi's home district. >> it's just another notion that is unworthy of the presidencytef the ustates and disrespectful, the challenges that we face as a country, as people to address who we are, a nation of immigrants. >> the president t teatening test that proposition. >> california certainly is always ,ying, we want more people, and they want more people inheiranctuary cities. we'll give them more people. we can give them a lot. we can give them an unlimited let's see if they're so happy. >> his plan to punish democrats
first reported in thn "washingst" coming just hours after white house and epartment of homeland security officials said it had been rejected back in february because the plan was in the wos of one former official so illegal. the president'shreat coming off months, after his secretary homeland security, kirstjen nielsen who resigned on sunday. before naming kevin mcaleenan as acting secretary, trump reportedly told him shut down the border and dangled a president pardon for mcaleenan if he faced consequences. that order to seal the border an indication of how serious trump was last week when he promised . to do just th >> we'll close the border. somebody said it will take a year. no, it won't take a year. it will take a day. >> late last night, the president disputed that he offered mcaleenan any sort of pardon taking to twitter, saying another fake story on nbc news that i offered pardons, of course this is not true.
meanwhile, some of the mayors in ganctuary cities have been taken to twitter say immigrants are still welcome in their cities but they are noting they don't have the authority to make them stay because cities in america, they've got open borders. >> good point. thank you. joining us from the "washington post" is white house reporter and nbc news political alyst, ashley parker. good morning. >> good morning. let's start on immigration if we can here, the president as we have witnessed has broken a lot of norms over the course of his presidency. but it appearsith the sanctuary city idea that he may also be pushing the boundaries of the i guess the question is this real or is this just another effort to aeal to his base? >> i think it's a great question and the answer is both. the president has gotten a ton of mileage out of threats and bluster without following through and his base certainly likes this rhetoric but the "post" reported and the president confirmed that this is something he is actually considerg and it's worth noting he sometimes does follow through on his threats.
the one question is if it is actually a legal issue and he'll be able to do that or he'll face hurdles. >> let me ask you about the mueller report as washington braces for the report in the next few days. attorney general william barr saying he believ occurred at the beginning of the campaign. can you put this into context for us? it was supposed to be an p independencess. obviously it seems political and are we ever getng to any closer to closure on this? >> i think the context is it is deeply politicized at this point. you're going to see the republicans in thno white house atter what we see saying we told you for 22 months this is a witch hunt, and they found no collusion, and you're going to see dheocrats going through 300, 400 pages, picking out unflattering hedetails for president saying he behaved poorly, and it will break along partisan lines. e> obviously that's going to be central to 2020 debate, immigration is going to be central to the 2020 debate as well. weekend, tomorrow, the
