Maxine Waters Calls Trump’s Immigration Plan ‘Racist’ — Sean Spicer Knocks Dems’ ‘Go-To Line’

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is blasting Democrats for their repetitive “go-to line” in calling anything President Donald Trump does “racist.”

The president unveiled a new immigration plan on Thursday that would include moving to a “merit-based” system, as IJR Red reported.

However, during Friday’s interview on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said, “We need comprehensive immigration reform,” but not Trump’s, as IJR Blue reported.

“I think some of that is very racist,” she later said, adding:

“[…] This business about you must speak English, or we’re going to give you points for speaking English, and we don’t want poor people, we only want those people who are earning substantial wages already. All of those things are not keeping in step with the way that we treat human beings.”

Waters’ statement didn’t sit over well with Spicer as she swiped back at congressional Democrats for not working with Trump on the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“This has become the go-to line for everything the Democrats don’t like,” Spicer responded to Waters’ remark.

“We clearly have a crisis at the border,” he added. “I think any objective person with their eyes open can see it.”

Spicer went on to suggest the Democratic lawmaker should come up with an immigration plan:

“So if Maxine Waters has a problem with the president’s problem, number one, she needs to acknowledge the crisis we have at our southern border and the problem that the current immigration system creates […] but secondly, she should come up with a plan. Right now the president is leading on this, and she’s not.”

Doubling down that Waters’ statement is “silly” and a “dog-whistle to the left,” Spicer suggested that she’s “equally accusing several countries that we have strong relationships with of being in the same.”

See Spicer’s reaction below:

Even though House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) labeled Trump’s immigration plan “dead on arrival” on Thursday, the president claimed the next day that there’s a “good chance” Democrats will support it.

Maybe Mad Max would like to move to a country that she considers to be more welcoming to LEGAL immigrants and is less racist than the US.
