BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Huge story today about the delays at the border on both sides. Because the checkpoints are clogged. The resources are fanned out. Dealing with the thousands of refugees, expected to be over 100,000 this month. Maybe even hit the mark already before April is through. The 2,000-yard, 2,000-mile boundary, they say, is being hampered, and therefore, it looks like delays to especially automakers. It's going to hurt farmers. The $1.7 billion a day in commerce is going to be curtailed.

And if you hit the economy of these cities and states, many of which are in Trump districts that Democrats won this cycle, and you do nothing, this is no longer about the president and a wall that you don't want. This is now about the economy and a human catastrophe. And no one's going to point fingers, especially -- if you continue to understand what is happening inside these holding areas where these families are being kept. They're not -- they're being overwhelmed now. And you got to wonder from a health perspective how soon it's going to be until we hear about a catastrophe, and what they might be bringing across the border anyway because they're not inoculated like we are.
