Sanders: Dems, Media 'Overplaying Their Hand' With Criticism of Trump on Immigration
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday she believes Democrats and the media are "overplaying their hand" with criticism and negative coverage of President Trump's immigration policies.
In addition to promising that a Central American migrant caravan will not be allowed to enter the United States, Trump said this week he wants to issue an executive order to restrict birthright citizenship.
Sanders argued that a majority of the American people are on the president's side on the issues, favoring stronger immigration laws and border security.
So-called Birthright Citizenship, which costs our Country billions of dollars and is very unfair to our citizens, will be ended one way or the other. It is not covered by the 14th Amendment because of the words “subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” Many legal scholars agree.....

"The media and Democrats, which sometimes can be one and the same, would overplay their hand in the way that they're doing on this issue or anything that the president brings up," she said on "Fox & Friends."
She emphasized that Democrats are the "party of 'no' and obstruction" and the current immigration situation is due to the failure of Democrats in Congress.
