Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel declined on Sunday to address an incendiary immigration video shared last week by President Donald Trump, instead saying that, "we know good people are trying to come into the country, too."
The online video, which was tweeted by Trump last Wednesday, accuses Democrats, without evidence, of plotting to help people it depicts as Central American invaders overrun the nation with cop killers.
"Listen, we know good people are trying to get into this country, too. They see the prosperity, they see the economic growth," McDaniel told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."
"They're coming to this country because they see it as a beacon of hope. We need to find a legal way to get people here, we need to find a way to fix our immigration system. Democrats won't work with us," she said.
The web video -- produced for the Trump campaign -- features Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican man who had been deported but returned to the United States and was convicted in February in the slaying of two California deputies.
"I'm going to kill more cops soon," a grinning Bracamontes is shown saying in court as captions flash across the screen reading, "Democrats let him into our country. Democrats let him stay."
McDaniel told Tapper that by sharing the video, the President was simply trying to bring attention to Bracamontes' story.
"I think the President's highlighting the point once again that we don't -- and I think everybody agrees with this, Jake -- we didn't want this individual in our country," she said.
"We don't want people being deported and being criminals and then coming back into this country."

Her Romney is showing..........
But you won’t know until you vet them.
GOOD people would respect our laws and come in LEGALLY.
Ronna McDaniel.....Mitt Romney’s niece.
They need to see “BORDER”....STOP....GO BACK
>>Her Romney is showing..........
Yep. True colors a ‘comin out now.
GOOD people are not coming into the country ILLEGALLY! GOOD people come LEGALLY.
The R.N.C. ain’t U. and Me. Hasn’t been for decades.
I wonder if the Pubbies will EVER figure out that it’s OK to be disliked by the Left, that it’s OK to defend the Constitution, that it’s OK to DO YOUR FRIGGIN’ JOBS and PROTECT Americans!
They seriously only have ONE JOB! Do it!
She is another reason why it so often seems that Trump is trying to pull the GOP over the finish line almost by himself. The GOP leadership has largely been passive to active saboteurs, like Paul Ryan.
What do I expect from Cowardly Lion Republicans?
Nothing. Incendiary video, indeed.
Ok. It means the bomber was over the target for a direct hit...
We need to find a legal way to get people here,
No we don’t. Over a million come legally every year.
And remember back when... that’s why Donald Trump, when proposing the Wall, also promised a Big Beautiful Door.
A Door. A Door.
If discussions would recenter around a Door, then everything else would come into place. A Door needs a Wall. But not all Walls have Doors. This Wall will.
How can a video be ‘controversial?’
What is, is! Cameras cannot fake the action.
Good neighbors and good people knock and then come in through the door if invited. Those who bust their way in illegally in are trespassers/invaders.
What an IDIOT!
