STEVE DEACE (HOST): Well, let's go back to 9/11 and reset a research point that I pointed out on this show a few months ago. Since 9/11, we -- if you took the total amount of people that we have imported from Islamist-dominated countries, that we have -- for not even illegally, we just agreed to accept either legally or as refugees or asylum seekers, because I'm sure -- I'm sure we vetted them all, right? Right? Sure.

If you took the total population of those people from Islamist-dominated countries that we have imported, it would be the 36th most populous state in the union, the 36th most populous state. Now, let's -- let's say 99 percent of them were completely and totally vetted -- they weren't -- and we have a pretty good read on their character and caliber and qualifications -- we don't -- but let's say we do, and it's one percent - you'd be looking at a standing army in the tens of thousands. Let's say it's point one - you'd be looking at a standing army way beyond the size and scope of the 20 -- what was it, 20, 21 people pulled off 9/11, something like that?
