STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): We're going to tell you about a Democrat who is a governor candidate. His name is David Garcia. And he was at the Netroots convention in New Orleans. And he said, "Imagine no wall on the southern border of Arizona." Keep in mind, he is running for governor of Arizona.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): So that is -- I guess he wants to put that to John Lennon's "Imagine." I'm not really sure -- yeah, I'm not really sure if that's really going to resonate with the people of Arizona. But it does resonate with the Netroots crowd. He wants to run for president and that's the type of rhetoric that you heard: Socialism is in, borders are down, and ICE is out.
DOOCY: It's not the first time that he has suggested an anti-border agenda. He did not want the National Guard involved in the family separation on our southern border. He has called for the replacement of ICE with something which he describes as actually works. And he does not like the Arizona border strike force, which he says in Arizona is a ploy to use immigration as a political tool to continue fear. That particular strike force was started by [Republican Gov. Doug] Ducey to stop the crime from entering from Mexico into Arizona. And so far it has worked.
KILMEADE: What I don't get is that the polls show that you might debate the wall or the fence, but nobody -- eight out of every 10 Americans wants border security. Why politically does he think that that is advantageous position, let alone what he thinks.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Well, talk to the people who live near the border where these individuals, many of them are criminals, are coming across the border into their property and they are fearful.
