Virginia Rep. Jim Moran (D) has called for legislation to study the idea of creating a museum celebrating immigration in America.

U.S. Congressman Jim Moran represents a highly diverse district in northern Virginia. And now he's pushing for a national museum that would celebrate the American immigration experience. He's co-sponsor of legislation that would create a Museum of the American People on the National Mall. Rebecca Sheir meets up with Moran to hear more about the proposed museum, which he says would be built without federal taxpayer funds.
