BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): First off, we need your opinion on what is going on with this walkout.

JEDEDIAH BILA (GUEST CO-HOST): Wayfair walkout.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST):: Yeah, Wayfair apparently is -- they have said we will sell $200,000 worth of furniture to a company, a nonprofit down at the border at one of those migrant centers. And so today at 1:30, 500 people have signed a contract, they're going to walk out at Wayfair. Wayfair says, you know what? We're going to go ahead and sell the stuff to them because they're not breaking any rules.

TOMI LAHREN (FOX NATION HOST): Let them walk out. At the end of the day would they rather have their precious illegal immigrants sleeping on the ground? I don't understand this logic, and again, I don't understand the Democrats either, who constantly squabble over funding beds in detention centers. You would think that they would want beds for illegal immigrants to sleep on, but not if you understand the real story, which is more beds means they keep the people in the detention centers for longer, it's not as quick of a catch and release into the shadows quicker. That's what the Democrats want, ushering in their future voting block in the United States of America.

KILMEADE: Which we see right now in the bill that they put out. They don't want additional beds, which is why the president is probably not going to sign it unless the Senate can force them to change it.

LAHREN: And he shouldn't because this is a crisis. And all we're doing by saying come to this country and we will take you, we will process you, and we will let you be released into this country, that's issuing a cattle call for more people to come to make that dangerous journey. So the Democrats talk about the humanitarian crisis -- they are creating it by issuing this cattle call for people to come into this country. They shouldn't be.

...

BILA: I don't really get it. Does -- you know, they have been talking about a humanitarian crisis, we all have, we all want it solved. Do you want the beds for the kids or not? Now she's making a case for, oh they shouldn't provide those beds? I don't understand these Democrats. Do they want a solution? Do they want a fix? What's going on here?

LAHREN: Their solution is we have 100,000 -- averaging 100,000 apprehensions per month. They are fine with that. They don't want to house illegal immigrants. They want to release them into the shadows of society. They want to overwhelm our cities. They want to usher them, of course, into the red states like Texas, turn them blue. That is the plan. Eventually it will be a push for amnesty, but they have to first get as many through the door as they can. This is all strategy and they cloak it in a "humanitarian crisis." It's an opportunity.
