“It’s a sad day in America when Mexican government is doing more to protect the American people than Senate Democrats.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders slammed Senate Democrats on Friday for not supporting U.S. national security interests by rejecting funding for border security, specifically President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.

“We will do whatever we need to do and whatever we can do to help the process. At this point, it’s up to the Senate,” Sanders said during an appearance on “FOX & Friends.”

“One thing that I think has been missed and didn’t get a lot of coverage yesterday was what we have worked out, what this administration has been able to do in conjunction with the Mexican government and the massive and monumental moment that took place yesterday where catch-and-release has ended,” Sanders continued.

“It’s a sad day in America when Mexican government is doing more to protect the American people than Senate Democrats,” Sanders added. “I hope they will not let that be the case by the end of the day and they will work with us and work with the president and Senate Republicans to get this done and let everybody go home and let us start building the wall and let us start protecting our border.”
