White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unloaded on Congressional Democrats Tuesday; slamming the liberal lawmakers for using America’s ‘Dreamers’ as ‘political pawns’ while refusing to strike a DACA deal with the President.
Sanders was speaking with Fox News when she called out Schumer, Pelosi, and other leading Democrats who “go on TV” to champion the ‘Dreamers’ but have no real interest in solving the nation’s immigration problem.

“Republicans are there. The President is there. He’s made multiple offers trying to get Democrats to actually do their jobs. What we’re seeing is that the Democrats would much rather use DACA recipients as pawns instead of actually putting real solutions forward and making things happen,” said Sanders.
“The President has made at least two very generous offers to extend the DACA deal in exchange for border security,” she added. “They continue to not want to help these people.”
“It is beyond me how they go out on TV and cheer and champion and say they want to do what they can to help DACA recipients. The two opportunities they had they haven’t taken them,” said the Press Secretary.
DACA DELUSION: Kirsten Gillibrand Says ‘Chain Migration’ is a ‘RACIST SLUR’
New York Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand continued her crusade against President Trump’s proposed immigration overhaul on Monday; telling television viewers that the term “chain migration” is somehow a “racist slur” against immigrants and foreigners.
Gillibrand was speaking with ‘The View’ when she unloaded on the President’s proposal to provide a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2 million ‘Dreamers’ in exchange for ending “chain migration” and increased funding for his border wall.
“Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi when she says Trump wants to ‘Make America White Again’ and that’s what this is all about?” asked co-host Joy Behar.
“I think a lot of President Trump’s rhetoric is racist. Let’s be very clear: When someone uses the phrase chain migration it is intentional in trying to demonize families, literally trying to demonize families and make it a racist slur, it is not right. We have to change the debate” Gillibrand said.

DO YOUR JOB: Trump Demands Congress Act on DACA
President Trump is currently deciding the fate of Barack Obama’s executive order, issuing legal work status for illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as minors. The program currently covers hundreds of thousands of individuals.
Should President Trump decide to rescind Obama’s immigration program, the issue would then move to Congress.
“It’s a decision that I make and it’s a decision that’s very very hard to make. I really understand the situation now,” Trump told journalists last month. “I understand the situation very well. What I’d like to do is a comprehensive immigration plan. But our country and political forces are not ready yet.”
