tune in tomorrow night. we have presidential candidate ted cruz. we'll ask him about his battle with "the new york times" and the best-seller list. facebook.com/"the kelly file" with your comments. see you tomorrow. i'm megyn kelly. tonight. >> the united states together with our international partners has achieved something that decades of animosity has not. a comprehensive long term deal with iran that will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> former vice president dick cheney joins us exclusively to react to the iranian nuclear deal. >> the world is a much more dangerous place today than it was yesterday. plus our closest ally, israel, is betrayed. >> what a stunning historic mistake. >> mark steyn and the great one, mark levin weigh in on all the ramifications from this disastrous deal. >> this particular set of circumstances and the people involved, the different agencies, let us down.
plus 2016 republican presidential candidate senator rand paul explains his plan to shut down sanctuary cities. and one of the world's most notorious drug lords now escaped from a mexican prison and is threatening donald trump. "hannity" starts right here, right now. >> welcome to "hannity." a nuclear deal has been reached with iran and the obama administration, they're taking a victory lap. the prime minister of israel, he warned this deal is a massive mistake. >> the bottom line of this very bad deal is exactly what iran's president rouhani said today. the international community is removing the sanctions, and iran is keeping its nuclear program. israel is not bound by this deal with iran. because iran continues to seek our destruction. we will always defend ourselves. >> now, israel has reason to worry and so should you.
after a lot of tough talk the obama administration moved the goal posts significantly administration officials told you and the american people repeatedly that arms embargoes would not be softened as part of any nuclear deal. you may remember this. >> there's an arms embargo against iran. would the u.s. be supportive of an idea possibly of allowing iran to -- >> to my knowledge, we are certainly not supportive of flouting any sort of restrictions on iran or other countries providing arms. we believe these restrictions are in place for a reason because iran has done things that have necessitated them being in place. >> things like arms embargoes, ballistic missile sanctions those stay in place. strictly focused on the nuclear issues. >> apparently not. according to reportings we now learn the nuclear courts say five years from now iran will in fact be able to buy and sell conventional arms on the international market. in eight years, it will be allowed to do the same with ballistic missiles. that's not all. just three months ago an obama
advisor strongly emphasized iranian nuclear site inspections. you may remember this. >> first of all, under this deal you will have anywhere any time 24/7 access as it relates to the nuclear facilities that iran has. >> today, of course, the administration is singing a much different tune with a senior official telling the jerusalem post quote, we don't think any time, anywhere inspections are feasible. it's just not something that happens anywhere in the world. even president obama himself had tough words regarding a specific iranian nuclear facility. watch this. >> we know that they don't need to have an underground fortified facility like fordo in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. >> once again today those remarks were meaningless, and the associated press reported iran committed to convert its enrichment site dug deep into a
mountainside into a research center. this nuclear deal was one that was struck with one of the leading state sponsors of terror and of course a country whose supreme leader routinely calls for the annihilation of jews israel and the united states. here with reaction for the first time, former vice president of the united states dick cheney. mr. vice president, a day that will live in infamy? your thoughts? >> i can't help but shake my head, sean, at what we're seeing here. we've seen a repetition of the same kind of operation with respect to other issues. one thing that really disturbed me was when he said we have quote stopped the proliferation of nuclear weapons. that's a lie. the fact of the matter is that the situation we've got when iran ends up with a nuclear weapon that is bound to lead others in the region to protect themselves and in effect to acquire their own capability. i think that was one of the biggest problems we had when we were in office that we were
concerned about was nuclear proliferation. we had seen the iraqis in '81 with a reactor. the israelis took it out, we took it out in desert storm. when we took down saddam hussein in '03, gadhafi gave up his nuclear materials. there's long history there. what obama has done has in effect sanctioned the acquisition by iran of nuclear capability. it can be a few years down the road. it doesn't make any difference. it's a matter of months until we'll see a situation where other people feel they have to defend themselves by acquiring their own capability. that will in fact, i think, put us closer to use of nuclear weapons than we've been at any time since hiroshima and nagasaki. in world war ii. >> you could really put the obama seal on these nuclear weapons because it's pretty much inevitable.
anytime, anywhere, apparently they have to give 24 days' notice. wouldn't that allow the iranians enough time to adapt and hide whatever they're really doing at these facilities? isn't that enough time for them to adjust and just do whatever they want the whole time? >> it certainly is. you also start with the proposition, sean frankly, i don't think we know everything there is to know about the nuclear program in iran. the fact of the matter is, our capabilities have never been perfect in terms of being able to read other nations and what they were doing. usually we have historically underestimated the nuclear efforts of others. i think this is a situation where we don't have the kind of access we need to be able to get in and know what is going on from a covert standpoint. they've had covert programs in the past. i wouldn't be at all surprised that they have things underway now that we don't know about. >> i think that's probably true. you know, as the prime minister pointed out bibi netanyahu.
he made his statements. he said the world is a more dangerous place than it was. he pointed out that as you look at the iranians here they have never kept any deal that they've ever made. it makes the world less safe. do you think countries like saudi arabia are going to move forward with their own nuclear programs? >> i'd be surprised if they didn't. the fact of the matter is once you get to the situation where you have iran with its threats to everybody else, it's continued efforts to undermine and destabilize other governments in the region i don't think there is any question that there are going to be others in the area a lot of them friends of ours who feel they have no choice. they can no longer trust the united states they have stood by and watched as obama has gone through all kinds of statements that turned out not to be true. and the notion at this point that they can rely upon the united states for protection or
for coverage by an expanded u.s. military capability isn't credible anymore. for one thing we haven't kept our word to them in the past. secondly we're dramatically reducing our own capables. obama keeps talking about getting rid of all nuclear weapons. he has already significantly reduced our capabilities there. this last week he announced a 40,000 man reduction in the united states army. he's not man of his word. he's not a man that can be trusted. i think our allies who find their very survival in question here, there isn't any way they're going rely upon barack obama for safety and security. they're going to get their own. >> mr. vice president, four days ago they were chanting death to america. they did this all throughout the negotiations. which, to me, is obscene that you would continue to negotiate with people that are burning your flag or chanting death to america. here is one of these incidents that occurred. this was in march. [ speaking in a foreign language ]
>> that's the supreme leader chanting leading a chant "death to america." of course he says "death to israel" also. during these negotiations, they said the destruction of israel is non-negotiable. i have video of them four days ago they were burning, you know, the american flag, the israeli flag. they have done this many times. this was just this past weekend. my question to you is, why do you think this president -- how do you analyze his trust level with them? why does he trust them? because i don't. >> i certainly don't. one interesting thing in the agreement today, this is the last sentence of the first paragraph.
it says iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will iran ever seek develop or acquire any nuclear weapons. who the heck believes that? it's just beyond me. i try to understand what it is barack obama thinks he's achieving here. why he looks at the world in different light than anybody else does. but he clearly does not understand or chooses to ignore reality. and that's going to cost us dearly as a nation. and it clearly has put news a position where our capacity of influence in that part of the world has been dramatically undermined. we are not only clearing the way for iran to have nuclear weapons. we're going to send them about $140 billion in cash, lift the sanctions. they'll be able to be more aggressive than they've ever been with respect to quds force.
the agreement itself raises the sanctions, eliminates the sanctions on the force and on the irgc. one of the interesting things is the quds force was originally for terrorist activity. go back and look at the treasury department press release when it was done in '07. it was because of their material support for terrorism in the form of the taliban. didn't have anything to do with a nuclear program. they are now being taken from the sanctions list as part of this overall agreement, which supposedly doesn't deal with terror. no, it just provides a heck of a lot of money for the world's leading terrorist organization to go out and do more of what they've done in the past. >> the israeli ambassador actually analyzed the money. they'll be getting up to $150 billion. iran is $300 billion to $400 billion economy. $150 billion he points out infusion cash into their coffers would be enormous. just to show the magnitude of the amount of money we're giving which i'm sure as a leader in
state sponsored terror. that will continue to use this that arena, wouldn't you think so? >> i would expect so. if we look at their track record over the years. i saw a piece today that estimates the iranians were responsible through proxies of the death of about 1,000 americans in the last ten years using their proxies, force, and others in order to attack our people overseas. i cannot -- you ask the key question, sean, and that is what the hell is the president thinking of when he thinks this is a great deal. and i frankly i simply do not understand. i haven't met anybody who can explain it to me. >> i have yet to meet anybody who can as well. do you see a new emerging coalition potentially, israel, the jordanians, the egyptians, the saudis that they may align together because they see this as a clear and present danger to their own existence? because i could see that happening. your thoughts. >> well i saw evidence of that the last time i was in the region. it's been a couple of years ago now.
i visited with a lot of old friends going back 25 years to desert storm. and whether it was israel or jordan or egypt, the saudis, the emirates, they all had a similar concern. their number one concern was iran. number two was their concern about the united states and our misguided policies. but they were much closer to one another on the issues of the day than i'd ever seen them in the past. i think it may in fact lead them in that direction. if your israeli and you look at the situation, and you see a development that may drive others to seek nuclear weapons, obviously, you've dramatically changed israel's security situation. they may pay a terrible price for what barack obama has done here today. >> mr. vice president, thank you for being with us. we appreciate your time. >> thank you, sean. coming up, continuing coverage of the disastrous iran nuclear deal. plus what about americans being held hostage by this rogue regime in tehran?
why wasn't their release negotiated as part of the deal? we'll check in with mark levin. later mark stein weighs in. 2016 republican presidential candidate rand paul is taking on sanctuary cities. he's here to explain that and more tonight as "hannity" continues. he's here to explain that and more as "hannity" continues. ♪ to steady betty. to steady betty. fire it up! ♪ am i the only one with a meeting? i've got two. yeah we've gotta go. i gotta say it man this is a nice set-up. too soon. just kidding. nissan sentra. j.d. power's "highest ranked compact car in initial quality." now get 0% financing or a great lease on the nissan sentra. ♪
live from america's news headquarters i'm jackie ibanez. saudi arabia issuing a warning for iran on the heels of tuesday's historic nuclear deal with the u.s. and five other world powers. according to the saudi state news agency the kingdom is urging tehran not to abuse funds and incite turmoil in the region. under the deal iran must stop activities that could help them acquire a nuclear weapon.
in exchange financial sanctions would be lifted. new video showing the very moment drug lord joaquin "el chapo" guzman escaped from a prison in mexico. he escaped through a tunnel built right to his own cell. inside the tunnel a specially modified motorcycle. the mexican government is now offering $3.8 million for his capture and several prison employees have been fired. i'm jackie ibanez. now back to "hannity." welcome back. a nuclear deal has been reach would iran. it doesn't mean we should forget the rogue regime and what they have done in the past to americans and people in the middle east. back in 2010, iran paid the taliban 1,000 dollars for every american soldier that they killed. plus three americans, they're still being held captive in iran. one is missing. so why wasn't their release negotiated as part of the deal? my next guest calls the nuclear agreement, quote,
absolutely disgraceful and claims the president is delusional to think that he stopped iran from getting a nuclear weapon. joining me now weekly standard's stephen hayes. it's almost worse than that. we're almost paying them to build their nuclear weapons, build their infrastructure, the terrorist infrastructure. they keep their center centrifuges. there is no weapons embargoes going to be lifted. we are creating, marrying up a rogue regime. number one state sponsor of terror with nuclear weapons. how bad -- i don't think you would write a worse deal. your thoughts? >> you really can't. what was interesting is we knew based on the parameters of the deal that you and i have discussed before this was going to be a bad deal. i guess i'm surprised, i'm struck by the fact that when you get into the details of the deal it's actually worse than we would have thought. the arms embargo on conventional weapons sort of comes out of nowhere to be a part of this deal.
you have sanctions relief for the head of iran's quds force which was responsible for more than a thousand u.s. troop deaths in iraq and afghanistan over the past decade by supplying these epfs to shiite militias working in iraq also supplying weapons to terrorists in afghanistan. the idea that he would ever see any kind of sanctions relief whether nuclear related or terror related is a total disgrace. it's really shocking that this was in this deal. >> it's beyond shocking. all right, stephen hayes, thank you so much for being with us. appreciate it. nationally syndicated radio talk show host i call him the great one, mark levin. your reaction? >> my reaction is barack obama has planted the seeds of world war iii. one day it will break out right here because of his actions today. to arm up the iranians regime, this terrorist regime in tehran, obama likes to say that reagan and kennedy negotiated with the soviets. the soviets had nukes. iran does not have nukes.
but thanks to him and kerry and the other ideologues and the other lightweights that surround him, they're going to get nukes. this is where world war iii in my view is going to start. he has sealed the fate. the adults are listening to this program, your children and grandchildren, he has made this world so much more dangerous as a result of what he has done. these inspections are phony. there are no real sanctions. the iranians can't be trusted. they have demonstrated that time and time again no less than the united nations has told us. the russians and chinese are thrilled by this because we'll be bogged down for decades. this is a complete disaster. let me tell you what the world wide threat assessment says the united states intelligence community under this president said in 2013. tehran has made technical progress in a number of areas, including uranium enrichment and ballistic missiles from which it could draw if it decided to
built nuclear weapons. the icbms, do you know, sean, they weren't even on the table? they didn't discuss them? they said these technical advances strengthen our assessment that iran has scientific technical and industrial capacity to produce nuclear weapons. now, we were told a few years ago really they needed nuclear power to heat their homes in the middle of the desert. now we know that is phony. this whole thing is phony. what's happened now is obama has surrendered there. he's surrendered in cuba. he's surrendered with the russians. he's surrendered in the south china sea. meanwhile, he's hollowing out the united states military. this is a complete and utter disaster and america is in incredible danger as a result of this deal. >> also is israel as the prime minister of israel mentioned earlier. let me talk about what republicans might be able to do. they were -- they showed weakness in this deal as well. because they negotiated away, mark, their constitutional authority. they agreed to this 30 day, 60 day and the president saying
this is not a treaty. what is your reaction to how they have handled it and what options they may have available to them? at this point? >> we're going to have a conga line of senate republicans and house republicans decrying this deal. when they knew this deal was going to be a disaster from the leaks from the iranians. what they did is they surrendered their treaty power under the constitution, article 2, section 2, clause 2 to obama. so now rather than needing 2/3 of the senators present to ratify a treaty, all obama needs is one third of the senators. because he said in his speech today he's going to veto any changes that may come, any challenges that may come. the reason the treaty provision is in the constitution -- alexander hamilton made it clear. it cannot be left to one man to one administration to engage the nation in such a historic and important and broad-based global agreements without more than one man and one administration
opining on it. obama is disgusted by our system of government. he wants nothing to do with congress. and bob corker and lindsey graham and all the rest of them surrendered this power to obama. they knew better. the only churchill who voted against this the only united states senator who stood up and voted no one, was tom cotton. that was it. >> let me ask you this last question. i think this is important. republicans caved. they wouldn't use their constitutional authority and power of the purse as it relates to repealing and replacing obamacare. they wouldn't use the power of the purse when it came to the president's illegal unconstitutional executive action on immigration. they gave up their power as it relates to treaties the constitutional authority they have. so what good are they at this point? they seem timid, weak, no spine, no backbone, no principles. they won't stand up on these issues. what are they going to stand up for? >> they're not going to stand for anything. you need a new republican party.
reagan said it in the 70s. the same people who fought reagan and didn't want him to be president are the same people we're dealing with right now. they're busy attacking conservatives and their base. i've never seen such disgraceful conduct. the republican party has no purpose. it doesn't even stop obama. do you know obama in over six and a half years has had to veto only four bills? that's a historic low. do you know why, sean? because whatever bills the republicans send to obama he likes them. he signs them. they're funding every bit of obamacare. they're funding every bit of amnesty. they are raising the debt ceiling. they are working behind the scenes with obama and he with them. still it's not enough. the republican party needs new leadership, conservative leadership or this is going to continue. >> i agree. i see your new book over your shoulder there. and i got my first copy. it's coming out in august. "plunder and deceit." great one, mark levin. thank you for being with us.

>> we regard the agreements signed last night and the anglo german naval agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again. >> the peaceful resolution of conflict leads to more integration into the global economy, more engagement with the international community and the ability of the iranian people to prosper and thrive. >> we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference and thus to contribute to assure the peace of europe. >> today's announcement marks one more chapter in this pursuit of a safer and more helpful, more hopeful world. >> peace with honor, peace in our time. remember that? september 30th 1938. of course the president sounding very similar today. that neville chamberlain of course. is this analogy appropriate? joining us mark stein. is that a good analogy?
>> i think actually that's rather unfair to neville chamberlain, sean. he got the central question of the 1930's wrong but he was an honorable man who believed he was acting in the interests of his country and the british empire which he loved. when churchill became prime minister he kept chamberlain on and had him chair the war cabinet in his absence. churchill wept over neville chamberlain's funeral casket and claimed he was an honorable man who just happened to be wrong. i don't think you can say that about obama. i think what obama did is significantly worse than what neville chamberlain did. i don't think obama was negotiating on behalf of the united states. i think what happened at these talks is that he and the iranians were in a sense negotiating together to anoint iran as the regional power in the middle east and to
facilitate iran's reentry, the biggest planetary sponsor of terrorism, to facilitate its reentry into the global community. that's what obama was there doing. >> in the last century, mark, we lost 100 million souls. if you look at more mass murder, america defeating terrorism and communism and fascism and naziism and tojo's japan. et cetera. look at man's inhumanity to man just in world war ii and nazi germany. this president seems incapable of recognizing evil. number one state sponsor of terror. these are people who are fighting one proxy war after another. sworn to the destruction of the israel and the united states and the president makes the deal. it's almost like there is a missing chip here. what is the missing chip? >> well, i think that's the other difference between obama and chamberlain.
the horrors of the -- what germany did were not known to neville chamberlain. in a sense the appeasers of the 1930's did so because of the horrors of the first world war and the lost generation. and they didn't want that to happen again. and it's because we know they got it wrong that history won't give us the same opt out card. because we should have known better because it had happened before. i think what obama gets here, i think it does come back to his classic marxist world view in which he sees america as the problem on the world's stage. if you look at everything he did, he's done, sean, what he did with iran fits into that context. whether you look at missile defense in eastern europe where he takes the side of russia over u.s. allies like poland and the czech republic and the little things like the falkland
islands where he takes the side of argentina over u.s. allies like the united kingdom, and in the middle east he has taken the side of iran over u.s. allies like the sunni monarchies and israel because his central view is that america and american power is the problem in the world. and, therefore, american allies are part of that problem. and, therefore, what he does is in a sense withdraw from the world, and enhance the position of the enemies of american allies. that's what he's done in the middle east. it won't be confined to the middle east it will spread beyond that. >> let me shift gears and ask you about the rise of donald trump and also the president. he's been very quick to weigh in on trayvon martin on michael brown, freddie gray. but his silence is deafening as it relates to this 32-year-old woman kathryn steinle. what do you make of immigration and its impact on the presidential campaign and
trump's surge? >> well, you should never ask a legal immigrant about what he makes of this fetishization of the political class of the illegal immigrants. because i tell you something. one day, all of us legal immigrants who paid all the fee and did all the paperwork and went through the system, are going to have one almighty class action suit against the united states government to ask for our money back. it's quite disgraceful the murderer of kate steinle is a career criminal. who paid no price for his criminality. if you're a foreigner and you commit one little rinky dink nothing little crime in america in 1964, 1958, 1943, they wouldn't let you set foot in this country again. there's like aging hippies in canada who possess a couple of ounces of marijuana in 1964 and can't set foot in this country ever.
my old boss, konrad black. he used to run the chicago sun times and a bunch of other newspapers. he committed a white collar crime. no one can actually explain in the english language and the supreme court threw out 19 of the 20 charges. he can't set foot in the united states. but a violent career criminal federal, state and local officials collude with to let him have the run of this country and prey on americans. that's why donald trump has resonance. because what happened to kate steinle, anyone who reads the local newspaper and looks at whacky little hit and run accidents that appear in the paper on monday morning, knows these kind of crimes go on every weekend all over the map. >> real quick. yes or no, can trump win this nomination? >> i don't know whether he can win the nomination. if he keeps talking about this issue, in a sense he can win on this particular issue and put this issue in there.
>> all right. mark steyn, good to see you. thank you. coming up 2016 republican presidential candidate kentucky senator rand paul has introduced legislation that would crack down on sanctuary cities. he is here coming up next to explain. later, the notorious drug kingpin known as el chapo has escaped from a mexican prison and the country is now offering millions of dollars for his capture. how did this happen? we'll explain and more. coming up . coming up

welcome welcome back to "hannity," following the uproar over the death of kathryn steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant, gop 2016 presidential candidate senator ra introduced legislation intended to crack down on sanctuary cities. joining us is now is the author of taking a stand moving beyond partisan politics to unite america, 2016 republican presidential candidate, kentucky
senator rand paul. how you? >> very well. thanks for having me. >> i read that john cornyn and your colleagues today voted down an attempt to put this in the education bill. is that true? >> well, i'm not aware of how they voted on it, but i do know that what we do need to do is we need to tell cities like san francisco they have to obey the federal law. and immigration is a federal law. and states all the time obey this. if you're wanted to for shop lifting, and you're held for shoplifting in ohio but you committed murder in michigan ohio never releases you and say go on your way. they release you to michigan. it should be the same in san francisco. if you're wanford a petty crime but immigration wants you, when you're released you should go to federal prison. >> republican leaders are blocking a vote on an amendment that would put an end to liberal cities thwarting immigration law. so you want to end -- what we have 296 sanctuary cities in the
country. you want to put an end to it. and they're blocking an attempt to do that. why? >> well i think sometimes they just don't want to address facts that are out there. i'm not sure about this particular episode. but i do know we will attempt to get a vote. that's not our amendment. it might be somebody else's amendment. but we're going to attempt to get a vote on this. i think there's a good chance we can pass it because it makes so much sense. if someone is wanted for a federal crime and they're being held by a local jail, when the local jail releases them, they should be released into federal custody. this is something president obama changed. because it used to be that this was interpreted as being a mandatory hold on a prisoner. and president obama threw executive order and through executive interpretation has said it's voluntary. if you're wanted for a federal crime you should be held and not released to the general public. it's a real tragedy that this young woman lost her life because people in san francisco apparently don't care about whether or not they're releasing dangerous criminals into the public. >> did you see that the escaped
mexican drug lord el chapo that literally had his wife -- ordered his wife to give birth to their children in america so that they would be american citizens. so-called anchor babies. the ap reported on that. when is the practice going to end? >> we can't have a lawless nation. that's sort of what we have now is a lawless border. people have talked a lot about what immigration reform or security measures are necessary. really what we need is an enforcer. we haven't had a republican or democrat in the white house who is willing to enforce immigration laws. just enforcing the laws on the books would improve things now. we have sort of a lawlessness when san francisco thinks they can thumb their nose and not obey the federal law. >> what is your reaction to this nuclear deal announced today? what do you think the senate and house can do to stop it, if anything? >> i've been very skeptical of the iranians' intentions. i think anything that leaves them with a sufficient nuclear
capacity to enrich, is a problem. i think this agreement does that. i've also said over time i think the sanctions, if there was going to be sanction relief it should be delayed until we see sufficient iranian compliance. then the third thing about the agreement that bothers me is that it allows for sales of advance weapons like even ballistic missiles to iran. it would be a huge mistake for the world to begin selling advanced weaponry to iran again. i won't be able to support the agreement. it doesn't address any of the things. i did vote for the corker bill. i think it is sometimes mischaracterized. the corker bill says that the agreement does have to come back and be voted on. the president objected to corker's bill and in the end it was passed and the president went along with it. the bill does have to come back and be voted on. so there will be a chance for all of us to agree or disagree. >> but you didn't need the corker bill. it's in the constitution. you're a libertarian. you're a constitutional conservative. why did you need that bill when it's in the constitution as the
senate -- needs 2/3 approval? >> yeah, but here's the problem. let's say that i say it's a treaty. i do agree it's a treaty. so i'm with you. i think it's a treaty. the president says it isn't a treaty. so what we is a -- >> take him to court. take it to court. don't give him -- don't reduce -- >> i know. but here's what happens. if we vote to say it's a treaty, the president then vetoes it, it would take 2/3 to override t. so really where we are with the corker bill it's going to take 2/3 to override the president's veto which is exactly the same scenario we would have with a treaty. i think corker's bill is essentially the same on whether we vote on whether it's a treaty or not, because we ultimately will have to overcome a presidential veto in either scenario. i think they're essentially equivalent. >> it seems to me that congress is too willing to cede power. i think it's going to come back and bite us. >> i couldn't agree with you more.
i think it's the biggest problem facing our country. we've allowed the presidency to go so strong and the congress to go so small. we have given up authority to the president. without question it's the biggest problem we face in our country. >> let's see what the democrats do here. a number of them have said they don't like the talking points on the bill. when we get time to examine it more closely we'll see where they stand. all right, senator good to see you. thank you. >> thanks sean. coming up a massive manhunt under way in mexico after a notorious drug lord known as el chapo escaped from prison. the country is offering millions as a reward for his capture. and why is he threatening donald trump in that and more straight ahead. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line.
♪ how's it progressing with the prisoner? he'll tell us everything he knows very shortly, sir. as you were... where were we? 13 serving 14! service! if your boss stops by, you act like you're working. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. i am totally blind. and sometimes i struggle to sleep at night, and stay awake during the day. this is called non-24.
welcome back to "hannity." mexican drug lord joaquin "el chapo" guzman. he remains at large after a daring escape from a mexican high security prison over the weekend. now reports say he is taunting the authorities and the mexican government is now offering $3.8 million for his capture. joining us now for analysis is jan albert huson, a contributor for fox news latino. he visited the prison where el chapo was being detained. and also with us is the contributor editor and a former california senior intelligence analyst on border and drug trafficking in the security. welcome all of you.
jan, let me start with you. explain to me this particular individual. this is supposed to be the highest security prison they have. how could this have happened? >> well, so far, everyone's assuming that chapo's escape was a result of internal corruption. if you look at the way he was able to escape it's a one-mile-long tunnel that ends in a building that was specifically built for the purpose of allowing him to escape. such an operation takes so much resources and so much manpower that it's almost impossible for him to have been able to execute it without help from the inside. in fact, mexico's interior secretary assumed as much in a recent statement that there will probably be people inside the prison that helped him out. >> sylvia let me get your take on it. more importantly, he is now threatening donald trump. does donald trump have to worry? >> right now he probably doesn't have to worry.
the mexican cartels and drug lords have a history of threatening, usually it's law enforcement or senior law enforcement, special agents for different law enforcement agencies that generally work along the border. so far we haven't really seen any of those threats being carried out. and something like a vip like donald trump who probably had a decent amount of executive protection it's probably just rhetoric to draw attention to them right now. >> mr. hootsen, let me ask you. everyone thinks this one issue is a defining issue for the latino vote in america, do you agree with that? >> as far as being defining issue, i think it's much bigger than that. to bring down the latino vote, and just to call it a latino vote is a little overreaching. because there are very specific segments within the latino population in the united states that ontario all necessarily vote the same way. to say this is going to be a defining aspect of that i think is a little overreaching. >> mr. hootsen? >> i very much doubt it because first of all, these threats that
were put against donald trump, it's almost impossible to ascertain whether they were real or not. so it's also almost impossible to ascertain whether there is any real danger. i don't think there is going to be much influence. >> we'll watch it closely and we'll talk to donald trump on this program tomorrow night about it. thank you all for being with us. coming up we need your help. why? because our question of the day is next. it has to do with neville chamberlain and barack obama. that's straight ahead. chamberlain and barack obama. that's straight ahead. unbelievable! toenail fungus? seriously? smash it with jublia! jublia is a prescription medicine proven to treat toenail fungus. use jublia as instructed by your doctor. look at the footwork! most common side effects include ingrown toenail, application site redness, itching, swelling burning or stinging, blisters, and pain. smash it!
