Sarah Sanders: Trump, GOP 'There' on Immigration, But Dems Won't Cooperate

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

By    |   Tuesday, 20 March 2018 10:36 AM EDT

President Donald Trump and Republicans are "there" on immigration, but Democrats are resting the opportunity to put "real solutions" forward and proceed, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday.

"He [Trump] made multiple offers trying to get Democrats to actually do their job," Sanders told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"I think what we're seeing is that the Democrats would much rather use DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] recipients as pawns instead of actually putting real solutions together and making things happen."

Congressional Democrats, she added, had several opportunities, and Trump "has made at least two very generous offers to extend the DACA deal in exchange for border security and border wall funding. . . they continue to not want to help these people.

"It is beyond me how they go out on TV and cheer and champion saying that they want to do what they can to help DACA recipients, but the two opportunities they have had, they haven't taken them. They continue to ignore the real problem at hand, [and] actually address it with real solutions."

Meanwhile, the administration "couldn't agree any more that sanctuary cities are a dangerous thing."

"When cities start picking and choosing laws they want to follow, that is a dangerous thing and certainly outside of the jurisdiction the way our government was set up," she said.

"It is outrageous to think that sanctuary cities and even states now are putting law enforcement officials at risk and in danger because they're refusing to follow the law. It is beyond me how any city can just decide that there are laws they don't want to follow."
