Citation From the August 11 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends Sunday:

JEDEDIAH BILA (CO-HOST): Tom, I want to ask you about the Nashville mayor, David Briley, who tweeted out a how-to video in Spanish telling illegal immigrants how to avoid ICE. This is the tweet. It says, "If you or a family member have an encounter with ICE, it's important to know your rights and have a plan. Watch this video to learn more," and then that is followed up by a video, as I said, in Spanish. So, what do you make of this? I mean, essentially he is -- in the video, he's providing advice, saying, "Listen, you don't need to open your door unless someone is standing there with a court order from a judge, you have a right to an attorney." It lists a phone number, and a resource center, a hotline that people can call. What do you make of that?

TOM HOMAN (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): I think this mayor is disgusting, I think he's anti-American. If you love this country and you respect our laws, you don't tell people how to evade law enforcement. 


BILA: And it's interesting because the mayor, Briley, also says, quote, "I will continue working to ensure Nashville is a welcoming place for all residents," and that's just the way, the kind of talking point that's used. It's as if - if you support the laws of this country and support border security, you're not welcoming, when in fact, people are just saying you need to follow procedure, you need to follow the law, and that is suddenly becoming a bad thing?

HOMAN: Let me tell you something. The bottom line is, if you want to keep sending this message of we're not going to take our immigration laws seriously and we're going to help you evade ICE after you've had due process at great taxpayer expense, if that's the message you want to kept sending the rest of the world, you're never going to solve the border crisis, more women are going to be raped, more children are going to die. Let's stop the nonsense, let's fix the system, let's uphold our laws, let's have respect for men and women of law enforcement who put it on the line every day to defend this nation.
