BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Nathalie, I can't imagine how frustrated you must be knowing you wanted these guys, you wanted them out of this country, and sanctuary city policies prevented that.

NATHALIE ASHER (ICE ENFORCEMENT AND REMOVAL OPS): So true Brian, and thanks for having me this morning. Yeah, there's no question. The bottom line here is public safety, community safety, we need law enforcement partners to cooperate. And when you have politics driving these policies that prevent us from working with our local, state, and county partners, these types of things happen. This young girl did not have to be murdered.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Murdered brutally and painfully. 

ASHER: Brutally. Yes.

KILMEADE: Now, you could say that these city councils who vote on these sanctuary city policies are accomplices to murder. 


ASHER: Sanctuary cities with their policies prevent us from making those necessary communications so that we can prevent such tragedies to occur as in this murder with this young girl.

KILMEADE: Yeah, it seems like we care more about the illegals when we do about American citizens, and that showed itself now and resulted in murder.
