Raul Labrador Spars With Bill Burton: 'I Know More Than You Do' On Immigration (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) sparred with former Priorities USA Action advisor Bill Burton on the issue of immigration on Wednesday.

Appearing on MSNBC's "Now With Alex Wagner," Burton started by calling for Republicans to get a bill passed on immigration reform and called out Labrador for using talking points. Labrador shot back, calling Burton's comment "totally offensive."

"I think I know more than you do about immigration and immigration reform," Labrador said. "So let's not try to insult people."

The back and forth continued with Burton claiming Republicans are blocking immigration reform. Labrador blamed Democrats for failing to reach an immigration solution.

Back in June, Labrador quit the House group working on immigration reform over irreconcilable differences.
