SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You know you talk about the self-induced problem at the border. It's never been this bad. At the end of three years, I believe the number will be somewhere probably north of 8 million illegal immigrants that he has facilitated into the country, and now we have a new policy of just flying them in directly from the countries they come from, so it doesn't look so bad.

But isn't every problem we're now dealing with, isn't the issue of law and order a self-induced problem because they defund the police, dismantle it. The border, they abandoned the policies that were working under Donald Trump but blame Donald Trump, the high cost of energy, isn't that self-induced because of their climate alarmism? Inflation, big result of their energy and economic policies. Isn't it all self-induced, sir?


VICTOR DAVIS HANSON (GUEST): Yeah, it is. I mean, there is no such thing as a law.


You and I, if we fly in tomorrow on a plane in the United States, we're going to have to have a passport or some type of identification. We don't require noncitizens to even meet the minimum requirements that we require of Americans, so we're in uncharted territory, Sean.

We've never seen 50 million Americans were not born in the United States. Fifteen percent of the population was not born in the United States. Twenty-seven percent of Californians were not born in the United States. This is a real challenge to the survival of the republic, and gosh, whenever you talk about something, they just deny it. And we're in kind of a la-la land, Alice and Wonderland, and then the citizens are absolutely baffled. They can't believe what they're watching on their television screens.
