White House press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to Democrats plan to re-open the government with harsh criticism.

“President Trump made a serious, good faith offer to Democrats to open the government, address the crisis at our border, and protect all Americans,” Sanders said in a statement late Tuesday according to The Hill.

“We have heard nothing back from the Democrats, who so far have refused to compromise. Speaker Designate Nancy Pelosi released a plan that will not re-open the government because it fails to secure the border and puts the needs of other countries above the needs of our own citizens,” she continued.

Sanders statements appear to be in response to Democrats plan to again push to fund the government without the $5 billion that the White House has asked for to begin the work on a border wall that would relieve the pressure on border protection agents currently fending off migrants intent on immigrating, with or without the United States stamp of approval.

In a joint statement, Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer put the blame on President Donald Trump for the shutdown and offered a plan that would continue current spending levels into the month of February, effectively tabling the issue until then.

“The first bill would reopen all government agencies except for the Department of Homeland Security – not taking a position on the President’s wall. It would simply continue the funding levels and language that both parties have already supported. The second bill would extend the Department of Homeland Security’s funding through February 8th, which Republicans already supported in recent weeks.”

“The Pelosi plan is a non-starter because it does not fund our homeland security or keep American families safe from human trafficking, drugs, and crime,” Sanders went on.

“The President has invited Republican and Democrat leaders in Congress to the White House for a border security briefing from senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials on Wednesday, and he remains committed to reaching an agreement that both reopens the government and keeps Americans safe,” Sanders added.
