"New Jersey congressman Frank Pallone made news on the Brian Lehrer show this week when he refused to stop taking donations from the fossil fuels industry. Even though he now chairs the energy committee that if you start going down that road that nobody can contribute you on the next Brian Lehrer show, a response to congressman Pallone from the founder of the sunrise movement, which supports a green new deal and has protested outside the congressman's office, the vitamer show at ten AM on WNYC. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning. It is day. Twenty one of the partial federal government shutdown, and there is no compromise in sight. President Trump still wants five point seven billion dollars for a border wall. Democrats refused to fund it at all caught in the middle. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers who are not getting a paycheck today because congress and the president can't find a way to reopen the government so far most Republicans in congress are sticking by the president, including our next guest. Congressman Gary Palmer of Alabama. He chairs the policy committee for House Republicans congressman thanks so much for joining us this morning. Nice Ramya on Rachel both sides have to give in any kind of compromise deal. You're a Republican I'm going to ask you about your party. And where you see that give where should the Republicans and the president be willing to compromise to end the shutdown. Well, I I think you might could compromise on the amount of money that it's needed. Although I think the five point. Seven billion dollars is. At least that much is needed. And it's not just I think there's some misunderstanding out there about what we're trying to do. It's not just it's not about a wall. It's about border security part of it includes fencing, however, whatever the form that might be. But almost a billion of it is for humanitarian aid is to provide more bids. It's provide more medical care and relief for those folks who are trying to get across the border that that need our help. And I don't think that message gets out. Very well. And and that's on us. I think that that we're not communicating as well about what all we're trying to with the funding. The president has said that if he can't get congress and Democrats to give him that five point seven billion dollars that he will declare a national emergency to end, what is really a political battle. Do you think that's a good idea? Well, I think what's going on at the border is an emergency. And we've been talking about this Democrats have talked about the humanitarian disaster. I mean, just if this has been ongoing for really ever since I've been in congress when all the children start showing up that was happening during the Obama administration. I do think it is it has devolved into a political battle. And and I realize I'm Republicans sound partisan. But when you sit down in a room to try to. To talk through things and try to resolve a problem. You have to have both sides willing to to engage in that discussion, and that's not happening with the other side of the aisle. And I can tell you Rachel that are people on the outside of the aisle that want to see this resolved because they realized that people are suffering. I mean, it's been Democrats and Republicans have agreed that something needs to be done at the border. I think were the problem lies in the fact that people aren't dealing with the same facts, right? You hear Sarah Sanders. Talk about thousands of people who are connected to terrorism coming across that southern border. And and that's just not true. I mean, data from customs and border protection proves otherwise. It's the number is closer to between six and twelve. Well, it doesn't matter what the number is in the sense. What they've what we know is that there were at least three thousand people whose travel patterns warranted special attention, and those who are all at the southern border. But when you talk about it's only six or twelve that came across the southern border is only nineteen took down the world trade towers. I mean, I don't think we ought to get caught up in ham. Any if only one carried out an attack that killed hundreds or thousands of people that's one too many. And you get you get lost in in those things. I think what we've got to talk about is go back and look what we did in two thousand six with the secure fence act. We we authorize funding for seven hundred little over seven hundred miles. We built about six hundred something miles of that, particularly in Yuma and Tucson border crossings illegal crossings are down ninety five percent and it works. Go ahead. If I may going back to what I'm saying, it's not just about fencing. It's also about humanitarian aid it's about more border patrol agents. It's about more technology being used in particularly for interdicting drugs. But even the department of homeland security says just over four hundred thousand people a legally entered the US in twenty eighteen that is down from one point six million in the year two thousand so you talk about being a. It's up from four the last five years. So again, when you get into numbers, your baseline is two thousand that when you say that the border illegal border crossings are up. They are up from for the last five years. Let me ask you a kind of about a different aspect of this. We recently interviewed Mark Krikorian on the show. He's the executive director of the center for immigration studies, which is a conservative group that wants a stricter immigration caps. And he said, President Trump's focus on the wall because he has focused on this idea of a wall rhetorically that it comes at the expense of other policy changes that he wants to see let's listen to this clip more border barriers like, I said, they're important. But there are other things that are more important things like plugging loopholes in our asylum laws e-verify, and what have you what do you make of that? Well, I haven't registered is. And I don't know the gentleman. So I think the president's focus on the wall is jeopardising larger more conservative efforts to. To to curb immigration. Well, the president has has repeatedly shown a willingness to compromise. And even in the context of whether it's a wall or a fence, or whatever you wanna call it. And again, the funding for this is not just about fencing. We realize we're not going to build a wall our barrier. Along the entire southern border. What we're trying to do is secure the border, and that's a combination of more board projects. Technology and fencing congressman Gary Palmer, Republican of Alabama. We appreciate your time. This morning, sir. Thanks for coming in. Thanks. Rachel. So there is one remaining open seat in the US house of representatives. It was left empty because of an ongoing investigation into potential election fraud, North Carolina's ninth district, Republican Mark Harris is leading that race and NPR's miles parts has this profile of a boisterous pastor who's been trying to break into North Carolina politics for the past half decade before Mark Harris, the center of an election that just won't end.
