TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You probably have fresher knowledge than we do out here, but it looks like Congress is not going to act because one party has a vested interest in changing the population and the other party is, in effect, controlled by people who want illegal immigration. So, would there be a downside for the president to act unilaterally on that question or, for example, birthright citizen? Would you be willing to draft an executive order eliminating birthright citizenship?
SEC KIRSTJEN NIELSEN (GUEST): You know Tucker, I think that the president's been clear. All of that is on the table, including to close down border. We have to stop this flow into our communities, we have to stop the drugs, we have to stop the trafficking and smuggling and gangs. He's very serious about it. So yes, I think that everything is on the table. In the meantime, I remain optimistic in the sense that I refuse to believe that the United States Congress will not act. It's not a partisan issue.
