Deputy White House press secretary accuses dems of playing politics with people’s lives

Deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley accused Democrats of putting people’s lives at risk while they play politics with illegal immigration.

“The president wanted a lasting long-term solution on DACA when he so graciously offered 1.8 million people a potential pathway to citizenship — three times that of Barack Obama,” Gidley said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “We don’t want to be in the same position that we’re in now, five years down the road kicking the can.”

“Let’s remember how we got here. Democrats had control of the House of Representatives. They had a filibuster-proof Senate. And they had a Democrat in the White House in Barack Obama. And he pledged 100 days to fix the immigration problem. None of it got fixed,” Gidley continued.

“We’re in this horrible mess now. But it should be no surprise to anybody. This happened back in the 1980’s, they gave people amnesty and there was a flood of people into this country because they wanted the freebies. The same thing occurs today.”

Gidley thinks Democrats are pushing their own political agenda at all costs and said it could end up costing American lives.

“This shows you that Democrats are playing politics with the people’s lives,” he said. “DACA wasn’t even in this last omnibus bill … it was so obvious as to what they were trying to accomplish in this country because they for whatever reason, decided to stand with hundreds of thousands of people who are here unlawfully and illegally as oppose to the American citizens — hundreds and millions of those people.”

“And the president stood with everyone and said let’s get this job — I’m here to do a job. Let’s get it fixed and Democrats haven’t come to the table,” Gidley concluded.
