Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., argued Sunday there “out to be a pathway forward” for illegal immigrants who came to the United States for the “right reason.”

In remarks on “Fox News Sunday,” Manchin said Congress should figure out a “holistic” way to address both illegal immigration and border security.

I’ve always said people came two ways,” into the country illegally, he said. “The people who came for the wrong reason, you want to make sure they go out and stay out. You need border security for that. But I think that people that came for the right reason, who have been productive, ought to have a pathway forward. That would change the whole complexion of this. The whole dialogue would change if that could be done.”

Manchin also said Congress’ pay should stop “immediately the day” of any future shutdown.

“How you stop this from happening… the one thing we can do to help the American society and the American economy and the American people is to make sure if a shutdown ever occurs by our own making, our pay stops immediately the day of the shutdown,” he said.

“Trust me, there will not be a shutdown. Everything else we can talk about, all the policies. You stop the paycheck the same as everyone else got hurt. The only people [who got hurt were] all the people working for the government. Congress didn't get hurt, nobody felt the pain.”
