CHARLES HURT (GUEST): I think it cuts clearly across party lines, partisan lines. This is something that affects Democrat voters. In a lot of ways, it affects Democrat voters even more than it does Republican voters, these invasions, and now we see these invasions into blue states and blue cities and, you know, you walk around New York City today or any of these other places where -- that have suddenly been affected, these sanctuary cities that were so happy to be sanctuary cities for so long and are suddenly having to contend with what border states have had to contend with and any states, you know, near border states have had to contend with for decades.

This is an explosive issue. And of course, there's only one politician who has been right about this from the beginning. And that's Donald Trump. And, you know, what we're seeing in both houses, both chambers of Congress, both the reluctance in the House to do this, and again, I would argue House Republicans should have shut down all spending. Just let the government shut down to fix this problem. 

LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): I agree. Yeah. 

HURT:  And voters would have rewarded them for it starting with Democrat voters in places like New York City. 

INGRAHAM: I completely agree.
