>> He is now holding the American people hostage over a vanity project that he calls a wall. While 800,000 people are trying to figure out how they're going to pay their rent, how they're going to pay their mortgage. It is completely irresponsible. And those folks don't want a wall, they want a paycheck.
So let's be clear about what should be the priorities of this administration. Get the government back up and running. And then, yes, let's have a conversation, a robust conversation. The debates where we need to have them on what we need to do to pass comprehensive immigration reform, cuz that conversation has got to happen.
But we don't need to hold folks hostage to have that conversation. It is irresponsible.
