>> THE PRESIDENT IS PREPARED TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO PROTECT OUR BORDERS AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY HE KNOWS THE NUMBER ONE JOB HE HAS AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF IS TO PROTECT ITS CITIZENS WHATEVER ACTION HE TAKES WILL CERTAINLY BE LAWFUL, AND WE ARE LOOKING AT EVERY OPTION WEEK THIS IS SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT TAKES INCREDIBLY SERIOUSLY ERIC: IS HE CONSIDERING THOSE LAWFUL ACTIONS? REPORTER: IF THERE WAS EVER A QUESTION ABOUT THE PRESIDENT'S POSITION, NEEDING A WALL, A FENCE, A BARRIER ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER TORE PROTECT THE INTEREST OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THAT WAS CLEARLY THE RACE TODAY

IN ONE TWEET, YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHERE THIS IS COMING FROM, THE PRESIDENT SAYING THE WALL IS COMING THAT DECLARATION COMES OVER BORDER FUNDING AS THE PRESIDENT MAKES HIS WAY TO CAMP DAVID HE'LL HUDDLE WITH SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS FOR A 2019 AGENDA STRATEGY SESSION HE WAS ASKED AT THE WHITE HOUSE IF HE WOULD BE WILLING TO INVOKE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY ALONG THE BORDER IF DEMOCRATS DON'T STEP UP >> I MAY DECLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY DEPENDING ON WHAT HAPPENS THE NEXT FEW DAYS

WE'LL HAVE A MEETING VICE PRESIDENT PENCE AND A GROUP WILL BE GOING TO A CERTAIN LOCATION AND YOU KNOW WHERE THAT IS I DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING TO HAPPEN AT THAT MEETING, BUT I THINK WE ARE GOING TO HAVE SOME VERY SERIOUS TALKS FROM MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY WE HAVE TO HAVE BORDER SECURITY IF WE DON'T HAVE BORDER SECURITY WE'LL BE CRIME RIDDEN AND IT WILL GET WORSE

REPORTER: DEMOCRATS SAY THEY ARE REPAIRED TO ENDURE EVEN A LENGTHY SHUTDOWN EVEN IF IT MEANS HAVING TO HOLD THE LINE WHILE THE PRESIDENT FIGURES THIS OUT THEY WANT TO DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN THEY SAY TO KEEP THE PRESIDENT FROM GETTING FUNDING FOR THE WALL >> THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HAS PRESENT POWERS BUT IF HE DOESN'T CARE WHETHER PEOPLE'S NEEDS ARE MET OR WE CAN HAVE A LEGITIMATE DISCUSSION THEN WE HAVE A PROBLEM AND WE HAVE TO TAKE IT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

REPORTER: WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS SAY DEMOCRATS WANT $54 BILLION IN FOREIGN AID THEY HAVE TO COME UP WITH A WAY TO COME UP WITH $5 BILLION FOR A BORDER WALL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL STAFFERS LOOK FOR A WAY TO INFORMATION FORWARD ON THIS IMPASSE ERIC: KEVIN, THANK YOU LAURA * IT'S A BUSY WEEKEND IN WASHINGTON

THIS PARTIAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN ENTERS DAY 16 BRIAN LLENAS LIVE FROM OUR NEW YORK CITY NEWSROOM >> THE SHUTDOWN IS AFFECTING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES RENT IS AROUND THE CORN AND SO IS MORTGAGE PAYMENTS AGRICULTURE, COMMERCE, JUSTICE, HOMELAND SECURITY, INTERIOR, THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND MORE

ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT, 380,000 WORKERS HAVE BEEN FURLOUGHED, MEANING THEY CANNOT COME INTO WORK AND WILL BE WITHOUT PAY DURING THE DURATION OF THE SHUTDOWN 150,000 FEDERAL WORKERS ARE WORKING BUT WITHOUT PAY THIS INCLUDES FBI AGENTS AND 88% OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, INCLUDING THE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION THIS IS WHERE WE GET INTO HOW THIS AFFECTS THE REST OF US THE TSA ACKNOWLEDGING THERE IS AN INCREASE IN BAGGAGE AND PASSENGER SCREENERS CALLING OUT SICK

CALL-OUTED TRIMMED AT DALLAS-FORT WORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS THE SHUTDOWN IS ALSO AFFECTING PRIVATE SMALL BUSINESSES IN PLACES LIKE OKLAHOMA WHERE PROPERTIES ARE SEEING LESS CUSTOMERS AS THOUSANDS OF FEDERAL EMPLOYEES ARE NO LONGER TRAVELING OR SPENDING MONEY >> IT'S A MATTER OF SURVIVAL SURVIVING AS A BUSINESS HOW LONG CAN WE KEEP THIS UP AND STAY IN BUSINESS

IF EVERYTHING GETS GOING WITHIN THE NEXT ONE TO TWO WEEKS WE CAN STAY IN BUSINESS FIT LASTS TWO OR THREE WEEKS A LOT OF OUR COMPETITORS WILL GO OUT OF BUSINESS AS WELL REPORTER: THE IRS IS AFFECTED REFUNDS ARE AT RISK OF BEING DELAYED IF THE SHUTDOWN STRETCHES INTO FEBRUARY ERIC: WE ARE JOINED BY NEW YORK CONGRESSMAN PETER KING

GOOD TO SEE YOU WHEN DO YOU THINK THIS WILL END? >> I HOPE IT END SOON I'M SORT OF AN OUTLIER ON THIS I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN THE WALL THE PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE THE WALL AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE BEING HYPOCRITICAL

ON THE OTHER HAND, THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN HOLDING ALL THESE EMPLOYEES HOSTAGE WHO HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE WALL BUT THEY HAVE MORTGAGE PAYMENTS TO MAKE I HOPE BOTH SIDES WILL COME TOGETHER AND FIND A WAY TO COME OUT OF THIS DEMOCRATS GIVE THE PRESIDENT MOST OF OF WHAT HE NEEDS AS FAR AS THE FUNDING REPUBLICANS SHOULD BE ABLE TO GIVE THE DEMOCRATS WHAT THEY WANT ON THE DREAMERS AND TPS THERE IS ENOUGH THERE IF BOTH SIDES ARE NEGOTIATING IN GOOD FAITH

I DON'T THINK AS A REPUBLICAN WE SHOULD LET THE FREEDOM CAUCUS HAVE VETO POWER OR WHAT WE DO ERIC: THEY HAD A DEAL LAST FEBRUARY $25 BILLION $25 BILLION FOR A WALL AND FENCE AND ALSO ADDRESSED THE DREAMERS

CHUCK SCHUMER SAID THAT THE DREAMERS WASN'T ON THE TABLE AT THE MEETING THEY HAD AT THE WHITE HOUSE DO YOU THINK BOTH SIDES COULD BE MOVING IN THAT DIRECTION? >> I WOULD CERTAINLY HOPE SO THERE IS PROBABLY MORE AVAILABLE ON THE TABLE FOR A DEAL HERE THAN THERE IS AMONG MOST OF STALEMATES THE DEMOCRATS WANT THE DREAMERS AND I UNDERSTAND THAT RIGHT THERE YOU HAVE COMING TOGETHER ON THAT

EACH SIDE GIVES THE ART OF THE DEAL LET'S GET THIS GOING WE CAN'T ALLOW FACTIONS ON EITHER END OF THE PARTIES TO HAVE VETO POWER HERE DEMOCRATS ARE AFRAID IF THEY NEGOTIATE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP THEIR LEFT WING WILL GO CRAZY

ERIC: YOU JUST MENTIONED THE DEAL THEY HAD IN 2006, THE SECURE FENCE ACT, DEMOCRATS INCLUDING HILLARY CLINTON AND PRESIDENT OBAMA FAMOUSLY SUPPORTED THAT BECAUSE IT WAS CALLED THE FENCE ACT, NOT THE WALL ACT DO YOU THINK THIS IS A BIT OF A SEMANTIC PLAYING OF GAMES? WHY WOULD THEY SUPPORT A FENCE BUT NOT WANT TO HAVE A WALL? >> IT'S ABSOLUTELY SEMANTICS I WAS ONE OF THE MAIN AUTHORS OF THAT BILL IN 2006 THERE WAS VERY LITTLE DISTINCTION MADE THEN BETWEEN A FENCE AND A WALL IF NANCY PELOSI THINKS IT'S IMMORAL TO HAVE A WALL, HOW IS A WALL ANY MORE IMMORAL THAN A FENCE

THEY WERE TRIPPING OVERTHEMSELVES HILLARY CLINTON, BARACK OBAMA, DICK DURBIN, GOING OUT OF THEIR WAY TO SAY HOW IMPORTANT SECURITY WAS AT THE BORDER AND WE NEEDED BARRIERS TO KEEP OUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION THEY SAY THEY WANT SECURITY BUT THEY DON'T WANT A BARRIER IF YOU TALK TO BORDER PATROL AGENTS, THE PEOPLE DOWN THERE IN THE TRENCHES, THEY WILL TELL YOU THEY NEED A BORDER WALL, THEY NEED TRENCHES BUT WE NEED THE BARE YEARS THERE AND IT'S A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE

THE PRESIDENT IS RIGHT TO FIGHT FOR THAT WALL BUT WE HAVE TO REALIZE WE MAY NOT GET ALL WE WANT NOW, SO LET'S GET A COMPROMISE THAT WORKS ERIC: WHAT CHANGED SINCE 2006 >> DONALD TRUMP GOT ELECTED PRESIDENT HE MADE THE WALL AN ISSUE IN HIS CAMPAIGN

THE DEMOCRATIC LEFT IS LOCKED IN AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP IT WAS MORAL YEARS AGO WHEN THEY WERE SUPPORTING IT, NOW IT'S IMMORAL PEOPLE IN MY DISTRICT ARE WORRIED ABOUT MAKING THEIR MORTGAGE PAYMENTS WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY GET SICK, ARE THEY COVERED WHAT'S GOING ON

IT'S ALSO THOSE WHO HAVE CONTRACTS WITH THE GOVERNMENT DOING LEGITIMATE BUSINESS WITH THESE DEPARTMENTS WHAT DOES AN AGRICULTURAL WORKER HAVE TO DO WITH THE WALL GOING UP WHY SHOULD THEY GO WITHOUT PAY WHEN THEY ARE PROTECTING US EVERY DAY LET'S GET IT DONE ERIC: THE PRESIDENT INDICATING THE MONEY TUESDAY-WEDNESDAY, HE'S HOLDING OFF CALLING FOR A NATIONAL EMERGENCY WHICH HE SAYS WILL GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO DIRECT THE PENTAGON TO USE THEIR CONSTRUCTION MONEY TO MOIST FROM WHAT THEY EARMARKED NOW OVER TO THE WALL

IS THAT JUST A BLUFF, DO YOU THINK? IS THAT A NEGOTIATING STRATEGY? DO YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT WOULD DECLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY IF BOTH SIDES CONTINUE TO BE OBJECT D –CONTINUE TO BE OBSTINATE >> HE MASS THE RIGHT TO DO IT AND HE SHOULD DO IT IF HE CLEARLY HAS THE RIGHT UNDER THE LAW TO DO IT AND THAT'S WHAT IT TAKES TO GET IT DONE, LET'S DO IT ERIC: IT WOULD BE APPEALED AND CHALLENGED >> I WOULD TRY TO DO IT LEGISLATIVELY

IT'S SMOOTHER AND IT GETS DONE AND THERE IS NO LEGAL QUESTION ERIC: DO YOU THINK THERE COULD BE A RESOLUTION THIS WEEK? >> I THINK THEY CAN HAVE ONE OVERNIGHT IF THEY ARE SERIOUS ABOUT IT THEY COULD GET IT DONE IF THEY WANT TO ONCE BOTH SIDES BREAK THROUGH FROM THEIR POSITIONS THAT ARE BEING DRIVEN — BY BOTH SIDES >> A NEW FEUD IS BREWING ON CAPITOL HILL
