Counselor to the president and pollster Kellyanne Conway blasted Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the House Democrats after the speaker announced that they would only vote for one part of a spending bill to address the crisis at the southern border.

During an interview with “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, Conway reiterated that the Democrats could solve “some of the problems” with the border crisis “in just one simple session” if they “come to the table” and worked with President Donald Trump.

She continued on to say that the Democrats could vote to fix “asylum laws” and the “Flores settlement,” as well as updates to the “TVPRA” (the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act).

“This requires congressional action,” said Conway. “If the president could do it on his own, he would have done it a long time ago.”

“Congress has to get this done,” added the counselor to the president. “It’s their job.”

The president’s counselor was asked whether the president would go through with his planned ICE raids if the Democrats go through with Pelosi’s plan to only pass the “humanitarian” part of a border spending bill.

Conway responded by saying that Trump was “serious” on dealing with the situation down south before bashing the Democrats for only going for “half a loaf” on the border spending bill if they are “finally admitting” the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is “real” and not “manufactured.”

“They know that these laws are broken […],” continued Conway. “They’ve got to come to the table and do the full job, not just a half job.”

Conway’s comments came the same day as Pelosi caving to vote on a spending bill to send more aid to the southern border.

As IJR Red previously reported, the speaker announced a vote to increase the level of humanitarian aid being sent to the U.S.-Mexico border so that the country can care for the more than one million migrants expected to cross this fiscal year. Pelosi’s proposed legislation does not, however, address U.S. asylum laws.

Want to see action? Start deportations AND place asylum seekers/detainees in their home towns. Don’t tell them before doing it. Let them discover it on their own.
