Illinois Democrat Says Trump Wants to End Legal Immigration

One Illinois Democrat says President Trump wants to end legal immigration to the U.S. amid the ongoing government shutdown.

Congressman Luis Gutierrez tells ABC's "This Week," Republicans want to build a wall so that our workers don't have to compete with illegals that come across.  

But Gutierrez says, "then they end legal immigration."  

"The wall is a monumental waste of taxpayer's money," Gutierrez said. "And it's to build a monument to stupidity, and it's just idiotic."

But Gutierrez says he's ready to give President Trump his wall along the U.S.-Mexico border if Republicans will agree to new legal protections for a measure to fix and preserve Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA.
