JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): The reason they do this, the reason they have the policy to separate children and families is to discourage human trafficking, to discourage families from taking kids across a treacherous, hot, dangerous southern border trip, and they want to discourage dangerous and illegal immigration.
