BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): As the president said, it takes 15 minutes, along with getting the humanitarian aid. Because you're asking border patrol to become daycare workers, and then you have the audacity to criticize them over the weekend when they are understaffed and don't have any facilities and never pretended to.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Right. Well I think the House will pass some money and it will be agreed to by the Senate to help with the humanitarian. But keep in mind, the president, in that tweet, made it very clear. The ICE raids are on ice, essentially, for two weeks unless they fix the asylum stuff. They're not going to fix the asylum stuff. So even though the House will probably pass some money for the southern border problems, it's not going to fix that.
RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (GUEST CO-HOST): It doesn't solve the root of the problem.
DOOCY: Exactly. Which means the ICE raids will be on in two weeks, if the president follows through.
CAMPOS-DUFFY: If you don't fix asylum, you continue to incentivize people. And again, the Democrats, by the way Brian, keep saying, "We are concerned about the kids and the deportation." If you're concerned about the kids, you have to close the asylum loopholes. Because that's where the kids are dying and getting sexually assaulted. Coming up.
DOOCY: But that's politics.
