White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has never had a problem calling out Democrats for their lack of action on immigration, and did so again this week.
Sanders stated: “It’s a sad day when Mexico and the Mexican government is doing more than Democrats in Congress to actually secure the U.S. Border.”

You are not alone if you thought Trump winning the White House meant sweeping conservative legislation in the first two years of office.
Bad leadership in the House by Paul Ryan prevented that from happening.
However, Trump learned his lesson that our politicians are pretty much useless, and is now taking matters into his own hands.
The deal worked out with Trump and Mexican leadership took the Democrats by surprise.
However, it is also worth noting how hard it also hit Republicans.
When Trump announced the tariffs, it seemed like more members of the party were against him rather than for him.
The fact of the matter is that everyone in Congress was upset that Trump went around them to get this matter settled once and for all.
Immigration is an issue that has been on the table since the Reagan administration, but nobody has been able to do anything about it.
Recent measures by Democrats have actually encouraged more immigrants to flood the border simply because they know there are no repercussions right now to entering this country illegally, especially if you are part of a family or with an unaccompanied child.
Donald Trump has taken action to stem this growing tide. We finally have a president that is willing to put the welfare of the United States above all else, and they simply have no idea how to respond.
