This is what Geraldo Rivera and Pete Hegseth discussed at a special live-audience edition of “Fox & Friends” on Friday.

Rivera said Trump’s proposal is “bad,” and, he acknowledged, there is nothing wrong with an immigration plan based in part on merit.

He has a Problem, to argue with Trump’s tough rhetoric on immigration, there is no need, “such edge” and calls instead for the “pragmatic idealism.”

Hegseth, on the other hand, said he is fine with a leader with “edge and hardness to” deal with the immigration crisis.

“I think that’s exactly where we stand. We have said, done enough coddling, enough rule-breaking, enough to run and breezed across the border and suddenly you have a DACA recipient,” Hegseth.

He added that “DACA 2.0 and DACA 3.0” could be on the way through the “insane” asylum laws, incentives for migrants to the dangerous trek to the United States

Rivera countered that it is possible, a strong leader, but also a kind, compassionate, comforting side.

“The comfort of the people, the citizens in this country who came here the right way. You want to know that it is said the rule of law for them,” Hegseth.

He later added: “It does not mean that one has no compassion. It means you believe in the rule of law. And the rule of law is, ultimately, compassion for the people who follow him and not compassion for those who break it.”
