MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): "Never should have created DHS in the early 2000s" just right in the wake of 9/11.
RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): I think that, Juan, no offense, but I think you're being disingenuous about her concerns about DHS. She's hardly concerned about, you know, many conservatives were worried that we are creating this big federal agency when Bush created it.
JUAN WILLIAMS (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): That's right.
CAMPOS-DUFFY: That is not the concern that AOC has. AOC likes big federal agencies, the bigger the better. Her concern is with the mission of DHS. She doesn't just want to eliminate DHS, she wants to abolish I.C.E., she wants to get rid of Border Patrol. She agrees with Julian Castro in decriminalizing illegal border entry.
So we're looking at someone who basically wants to give you the wish list for terrorists, the wish lists for criminal cartels and sex traffickers, and you have to wonder is she working for them or is she working for the American people? The American people, especially those constituents that she represents in New York City, want the border secure, where we already know, Juan, it's not just desperate economic migrants from Latin America, we have seen people from terrorist countries come across, from hostile countries come across the border, from Africa, from the Middle East. This is -- a national security issue.
