While top Democrats have not budged on their position, others on Capitol Hill working up a compromise; chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel reports.
Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal claimed on MSNBC Thursday that President Trump's real agenda is to make “America pure” by not having immigrants or “folks of color” in the country and shutting down all legal immigration.
Jayapal, D-Wash., made the comments on the 20th day of the partial government shutdown -- being fought over Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion in funding for a wall or barrier on the southern border.
As Democrats claim the security warnings about the border are "manufactured," Jayapal went much further when asked by MSNBC’s liberal host Chris Hayes whether the debate goes deeper than simple disagreements over a wall. Hayes, earlier in the show, also said sections of Trump's base want "an ethnically pure America" -- something the congresswoman echoed in her response.
