[22:00:00] VAN JONES, CNN HOST: Well, what's wrong with it, you want to knock over the Statue of Liberty?
JEFFREY LORD, CNN POLITICAL COMMENTATOR: Well, listen, one thing I can -- let's start with this. Everybody in this room, not to mention everybody in this country is a descendant of an immigrant, right? I mean.
JONES: Except for Native Americans, but, yes.
LORD: And they came from somewhere else, too, originally. Yes, did they not?
JONES: OK, fine.
LORD: Right, OK. So, that's where we start on this. And his only point here is that when people come into this country from elsewhere, we need to know who they are.
