BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I know our military is the best in the world. And [Secretary of Defense James] Mattis is a fine commander, but it's going to be so hard, I imagine, and challenging, and important to get the coordination down between the National Guard that's there, between the regular army -- the regular military that's reporting, and now the border guards that actually are on the front lines. 

But, I think, most importantly, it sends a message. The whole problem with taking the kids away at the border was not that we wanted to take kids away, we wanted to send a message that our borders are not open. We have a system to apply for asylum.
