Sen. Marco Rubio joined 'Fox & Friends' Sunday morning to discuss the humanitarian crisis facing those trying to cross the U.S. border illegally.
SEN. MARCO RUBIO: When we're talking about border security, this is really one of the things we're talking about. We want the word to get out that it is harder to get across the border, as opposed to the word that is getting out now, that migrants are being told, 'Don't worry we're going to get you across, it is easy.' A lot of them already know someone who is here who made that border crossing.
As long as people believe that they are going to be able to cross that border, desperate people are going to undertake this very dangerous journey, in which women are abused, children sometimes disappear.
Let me tell you, it is not a trip that anyone in the world should be making. From Honduras through Guatemala, through Mexico, trafficked by some of the most dangerous human beings on this planet, only to try to get across the U.S. border.
So from that standpoint alone, it is a crisis.
