Trump floats pardon for DHS appointee to follow his order


Trump’s latest threat on immigration is to pressure authorities into releasing migrant detainees into “sanctuary cities”. This is seen by many as an attempt to punish Democrats, and with officials in Trump’s own administration saying that the policy idea was “so illegal”, it was ultimately dropped. Trump also reportedly told the man who would become Acting DHS Secretary to close the border, and that he would pardon him if he were sent to jail for violating immigration law. Ari Melber discusses Trump’s latest attack on immigration and points out how pardons are for criminals.
