On "Fox Nation," David Webb said that President Trump is "simply calling the Democrat bluff based on their constant bluster" about sanctuary cities.

Earlier this week, Trump tweeted that illegal immigrants that can no longer be legally held in border-region detention facilities "will be... given to sanctuary cities and states."

Webb said the left's response was "swift."

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told New York 1 that the move is "illegal, and we'll meet [Trump] in court."

De Blasio, who presides over a sanctuary city, said he was confident he would "beat [Trump] in court" as well.

Maryland Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D) agreed in another interview that the move would likely be illegal.

"Disagreeing with the policy does not make it illegal," Webb said.

He said many Democrats "pontificate daily about how they will provide a warm and welcoming environment" in sanctuary cities.

"Now it's time for them to put up or shut up," he said.
