Rep. Katie Hill (D., Calif.) on Tuesday said she would support physical barriers on the U.S.–Mexico border based on the recommendation of border security experts.

CNN host Brooke Baldwin noted that Hill has previously said that she would vote for legislation that includes funding for border barriers. Hill said Democrats are working to prevent a shutdown when Baldwin asked her if she had “implored” Democratic leadership to cut a deal with President Donald Trump and Republicans.

“Well, I don’t even think I have to implore them, honestly. There’s a great deal of desire to come to some kind of agreement. We don’t want to have another shutdown,” Hill said

Baldwin then pressed Hill, saying she doesn’t think Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has supported barriers, prompting Hill to say, “I think that so much of this is around semantics, which is really frustrating.”
