Democratic U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee of Michigan tells Cynthia Canty about how he is working on a way for the federal government to help Flint following the lead water crisis of 2015. Kildee is trying to get Michigan and the federal government on the same page about a loan forgiveness program that could result in $22 million for fiscally strapped Flint.

Kildee also explains his vote on a new visa program and expounds on the dangers of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's statements about Muslims.
