Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) speaks about Trump administration policies toward Muslim immigrants and her own immigrant background at a news conference by members of the U.S. Congress "to announce legislation to repeal President Trump's existing executive order blocking travel from majority Muslim countries" outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., April 10, 2019.

Scott's remarks come after the sanctuary city proposal went - in a matter of days -from a twice-rejected proposal to something the White House claimed it was already working on implementing with multiple agencies.
