KATIE PAVLICH (CO-HOST): When you look at what's happening here, they're flying people in the middle of the night, hoping that people don't notice even though  they can see what's happening, what's going here is the -- the American taxpayer  is subsidizing human trafficking. They are finishing the final leg of human trafficking.

So, what happens is in South America, say you're from El Salvador, someone pays for an unaccompanied minor to get taken to the border. HHS gets them after being processed through border patrol, and then, the American taxpayer is footing the bill for these people to be put on planes and flown all over the country. I'm not really sure why if we can fly them from the border to New York, why we can't fly them from the border to El Salvador or back to where they came from to reunite them with their families there. Apparently that is not on the table.


JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): You can't vet sponsors and relatives after what you did in Afghanistan. We didn't even get our guys out of Afghanistan, we couldn't even vet an army after 20 years and now you know that these sponsors are vetted? You know that these are the real parents? Come on, you don't know that. 

This is taxpayer funded human trafficking. Who are these people that they're giving them to? Who are these agencies that are getting these fat federal contracts to receive these teenagers? Who are they? She can't answer that question and she needs to be asked that question. 

Americans can't even get on flights because they are being cancelled because of vaxx mandates, but you're going to give illegals, free flights? Free food?
