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. So if they want to change the policy, let's get a deal on DACA, let’s get a deal on merit-based and they can hammer it out. But if you are just going to do a potshot, you're going to embarrass yourself.

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): They also try to separate them because the adults go to a place that you wouldn't want to have children in, so let's find a different place for them

WATTERS: Some would say it's a more humane policy to do that. That's the argument
