Rep. Deborah Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.), the former head of the Democratic National Committee, blasted President Trump and his demand for a border wall, claiming America "do[es] not have a border crisis."

Wasserman Schultz, of Broward County, told reporters this week that "we don't have a border crisis" and "we don't have terrorists streaming across the border like the president said."

She called the border wall "not only immoral [but] ineffective."

Wasserman Schultz was later asked if Democrats should just "cave" to Trump's demands since they want the government reopened immediately.

"This is not an either-or proposition," she responded, rejecting the sentiment. "The government should be reopened."

Martha MacCallum asked her panel on "The Story" to react to the comments, and Christopher Hahn, a former aide to Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he agreed with much of what Wasserman Schultz said, but stopped short of calling a wall "immoral."

Hahn said a vehicle could be involved in a collision on Sixth Avenue outside the Fox News headquarters, which would warrant emergency status for those involved.

"If you fall and break your leg, it's an emergency," Hahn said, dismissing the border "crisis" claim.

MacCallum pushed back: "it's pretty difficult to understand the argument that there's not an issue," she said.
