PETE HEGSETH (GUEST CO-HOST): Guys like [Sen.] Richard Blumenthal still say things like, “It's a useless, reckless, vanity project” to actually build a wall where it's needed and to fix our asylum laws, which are a magnet for people. The caravans are real, Griff’s been there. These big groups that are crossing the border now are fractured off pieces of these caravans, people that want to get out of Mexico to the United States while the border is still open.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Sure. And one of the – we have heard that one of the reasons the caravans are so popular is because then these migrants don't have to pay a coyote. And they don't do it on their own. Rather than doing it that way they all march up to a port city and say we’re here to apply for asylum.
