BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And I'm telling you right now, the president's got to take advantage of this opportunity and take the anger and the energy towards building the wall, or whatever barrier works for whatever part of the southern and northern border to -- he's got to push it forward. Because now, people are actually listening.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): I agree with you, I was thinking this morning he could take advantage of this. Because I think many Democrats would still feel the same way many of you are feeling.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): The other thing to Brian's point about the earlier thing about cutting off the -- actually, it was your soundbite that somebody wrote in regarding cutting off money for sanctuary cities. Right now, the Congress is considering spending bills. What they need to do is include language so that these particular Justice Department Byrne Grants could be cut off if you are a sanctuary city. Right now the language is they get to keep the money.

EARHARDT: Is this your America? I mean, is this why we live in this country to be protected, to protect our kids so you can walk down the pier and not have to worry about someone who's been in and out of our country illegally over and over and over from shooting our child dead. Then the family is fighting back. They're trying to sue, they're trying to go and get Kate's Law passed, and nothing's happening. And it's happening over and over and over again. We talked to another mom earlier in the show who lost her son to an illegal immigrant and she said today kids are going to die and we're not going to hear about it because it's happening so often.
