This runs in stark contrast to the kind of language Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been using about a wall.

This illustrates what seems to be a growing divide in the Democratic Party when it comes to whether they will support a physical barrier or even a wall.

So, now that pressure is mounting on both political parties over the government shutdown, democrats seem to be changing their tune over the boarder wall https://t.co/Pb6NIJf619

I'm sensing a growing divide amongst Democrats, one side is willing talk about a possible compromise on a 'Border Barrier' the other is the 'Give No Ground/Give No Quarter' deathmatch with Trump group. The latter is louder and have Nancy Pelosi running scared she'll lose control https://t.co/EUiGA6x9g0

“A wall is an immorality” (Pelosi) is miles away from “I don’t think Democrats are opposed to any physical barriers” (Thompson).
