Media Matters reports that a Fox News panel has defended Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration. President Trump has tweeted: "Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people."
Co-host Katie Pavlich supported Trump’s move towards mass deportation. She says that it is “a legitimate function of ICE and the federal government and the law” to deport illegal immigrants.
Co-host Melissa Francis continues, “But it's not even about that. It's about the president doing a million different things to try and get Congress to act, and they keep falling for responding by criticizing what he is doing as opposed to doing anything themselves.”
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, another co-host, responds, “Yes, you're absolutely right. Please do something. We can all see that something wrong is happening, so make it right, fix it. But they're not going to get off their heinies anytime soon.”
