Details: Gidley told host Jeanine Pirro the move was to "try and make sure that happens." "We're trying to figure out if we can do that legally," he said. President Trump tweeted soon after Gidley's appearance the U.S. "has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities."
