STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): As the drug czar told us yesterday those people are being used in many cases as pawns because the cartels help the people go across so that while they're going across and the agents are processing them in that spot, a couple miles down the road that's where they bring the drugs in, billions of dollars worth.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And the other factor, guess what those people did? They paid the cartels to bring them there. So they get additional money -- 

DOOCY: Double dipping.

KILMEADE: -- for additional drugs to make themselves more powerful than ever. And a lot of times, you know, you didn't see it obviously, Laura Ingraham did a great job there, you see people start to cross and they fall out of their -- or their raft begins to sink and then you got to go in there with the boats and save them before they drown.

ANISLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Glad to know that the Americans that are our border patrol agents are taking care of these kids when they're sick. What amazed me is that lady said I saw on TV, you can go on up.

KILMEADE: There's ads. And so I said, on the news? And they said, no, commercial. So they're running commercials, "Come to America. Come to America. This is how you do it. This is where you go." So Guatemala and Honduras are looking to empty out the people that are on their social system to put them in ours. We are just not equipped to take in 2,300 in just that sector a day. It's just not the way a country functions.
