White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has come under fire after using her professional Twitter account to characterize Democrats as a "liberal mob" and make blanket statements on immigration policy.

Sanders's comments come amid reports that a caravan of thousands of refugees is migrating through Central America to the United States. The Trump administration has not settled on a plan of action if the migrants make it to our nation's southern border.

Sanders was immediately criticized for her comments.

Another individual pointed out that concerns about the caravan are overblown; the caravan is crossing into Mexico, not the United States. The chances that migrants make it to the U.S. border are low to begin with––it would take about two more months of travel (if not more) before they even arrive.

Trump administration officials who spoke to the press on condition of anonymity say they've been "evaluating the options in closed-door meetings that have gotten increasingly heated in the past week," including one which turned into a "shouting match," according to CNBC.

Sanders herself downplayed reports that tensions had risen among senior members of the administration and shifted blame to the Democrats, saying: "While we are passionate about solving the issue of illegal immigration, we are not angry at one another. However, we are furious at the failure of Congressional Democrats to help us address this growing crisis."

In recent days, President Donald Trump has made increasingly fervent calls to ramp up border security.

"We are a great Sovereign Nation," he wrote.

Earlier, he referred to the caravan––which is still 1,000 miles away––as a national emergency.

He also blamed Democrats...

...while blaming Central American countries for not containing the problem.

"We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them," he wrote.

It was not immediately clear what payments the president referred to, and it is unlikely he can strip foreign countries of foreign aid without Congressional approval.
