STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): The president the other day suggested he's -- they're looking at seriously ending birthright citizenship. First of all, what guarantees birthright citizenship?

TOM HOMAN (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Look, I think -- my personal opinion, I think the framers of the Constitution did not mean for birthright citizenship for those who are in the country illegally. I don't think they want to reward illegal behavior. I've been in this business for three decades. And I tell you, one of the first things a lot of these illegal aliens do when they get here is have a U.S. citizen child because they can get benefits, food stamps, you know, social services.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And that kid's an American citizen.

HOMAN: Yes. And they think -- it will help them stay in the United States. And look what's happened just the last two years. We have people say why is ICE arresting somebody that has two U.S.C. children and been here over 10 years? Because the message we want to send is, come to this country illegally, have a U.S.C. child, and now you're immune from law enforcement, you get to stay? You're never going to solve the crisis. More women are going to be raped, 31% are already being sexually assaulted, more children are going to die. We have got to take the enticements away. So, I think they should look at this and really think about what the framers of the Constitution meant.
