3:26 am
may of last year, and every month, i'm more disturbed by what i see what's happening to our children and the activities they're engaging in. every month, i try a different way to reach them. about a month ago, i thought, i've got to do something different. i've got to stir them in a different way, so, the recording that you all have seen that was done unbeknownst to me was the second time i used the body bag as well as the jail jumpsuit to really bring it to life to them in the way they're doing and what they're doing. if i only could show them the value as opposed to what they're heads towards that might make a difference. >> here's some tough talk for some young ladies, let's listen. >> young ladies, whether anyone has ever told you before, you're special, you're uniquely made.

stop acting like you're trash and putting pictures of yourself on the internet. stop being disrespectful of your parents. care about yourself. anybody can be nothing. >> did you hear anything from that? did you talk to their parents? what was the reaction? >> i haven't heard from them. the way this works, they leave the courtroom and then they go to the jail and actually experience what life would be like if they find themselves there. therefore, a second phase in which they call "pride." which they go through with their parents and try to teach them that they need to change their behavior. i won't really engage with them until after they get out of the program. i can tell you that i've gone to the pride portion of the program and talked to parents and students there. and the kids smile at me. they're happy to see me. and i think on some level, they needed that.
3:28 am
they needed the jolt. i hear from lieutenant sinclair that many of them start doing better. and that's what we hope, that they will do better and recognize that their choices makes a difference in what their life can become. >> here's an emotional sound. i want to watch this with the audience and get your reaction. >> when i see you all hurting it makes me hurt, too. i don't know you all personally, but i love each and every one of you. and i don't want you to come in my courtroom. >> so, emotions involved there. >> yes, and that's why i say, it was never my intention for this to be recorded. and despite what some might think, people in the community, particularly law enforcement know that i did not know this was being recorded. perhaps it was good that i didn't know. i don't know if i would have been as raw. this is a setting, you have to understand where the kids come into a courtroom.
3:29 am
it's on a friday morning. typically court isn't held by any of the judges on friday mornings. it's on a friday morning. the only people in the courtroom typically are these children, myself and law enforcement officers. and that's my intimate time, my intimate space to really be real with them, to show them my heart and realities of where they're headed. so i do that authentically and the truth of who i am. i didn't know this was recorded. so the world now gets see me put myself quote/unquote out there. i think it's important to reach kids. we have to be authentic, real, but they have to feel our compassion. >> they're all god's children. what do you say to the critics who say you're being too tough? >> that's funny, because i haven't seen those comments. i'm not a social media person. my judicial assistant just made a facebook page for me when she came into my chambers a couple
3:30 am
months ago but what i say to them is kind of like the little girl in "miracles from heaven." she's telling her mom her experience. her mom says maybe we should be careful about you telling the story because some people won't believe. she simply looks at her mom and shrugs her shoulders and says, mom, they'll get there when they get there. that's what i say to the critics. that all the kids won't get it you're wasting your time. they'll get there when they get there. it may not be at the point that i make the delivery, it may not be the point when people saw this video but i have to believe they'll get there. >> judge, these are the types of stories we love to cover. thank you so much for the difference and impact you are making in those kids lives. you have many more supporters than critics. god bless you. >> thank you so much. coming up, it is a controversial story, a teacher facing prison time for carrying a gun to his school in newtown.

is this entitlement nation run amok, both california and new york hiking the minimum wage to $15 an hour and even as jerry brown was signing the law, he said it doesn't make economic sense. okay, so why are they doing it? because it makes political sense, that's why. >> economically, minimum wages may not make sense but morally and socially and politically, they make every sense because it binds the community together and makes sure that parents can take care of their kids. >> well, fox news judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano is join us right now he's taking on economics rather than the law.
3:54 am
>> you know, the first part of -- good morning, steve. first part of what governor brown said is correct, it doesn't make economic sense. why sign it into law? there are economic sense of the government forcing employers to pay people more than they're worth. one is fewer of them will have jobs. so which is better? that they have a job that they earn less than $15 an hour with the opportunity to advance to save money and to put food on the table or that they have no job and they become wards of the state and wards of the politicians who force them out? the other hidden economic consequences, people said, well, it makes the employer pay the employee more. that's wrong. it makes the consumer pay the employee more. >> sure. >> because if the employer has to raise salaries more than they're worth, that's going to cause prices to go up and we're going to be paying more for the same goods. >> well, and the irony is then as the prices go up the people at the lower end of the food scale can't afford those things
3:55 am
as well. >> correct. so the long-term effect, governor brown and governor cuomo of forcing employers to pay low-end wage earners more than they're worth is putting goods and services out of their reach and causing a lot of them to lose their jobs. now, how is that moral or proper or communetaryan if that's a goal of the government? >> i know you're all heated up about this, but look at the calendar. it's an election year. do you think that has something to do wit? >> of course it does. unfortunately the people who -- the politicians think they're helping do believe they're being helped. it sounds good. the government is going to get me a raise. i'm going to vote to re-elect the people in the government that caused this to happen. we'll see how they feel in six or seven months if they don't have a job or if the things they want to purchase for the family and they need are beyond their

reach. the same government that bribes the rich with bailouts and the middle class with tax cuts now bribes the poor with minimum wages. >> you look at all of the surveys and they say that people on the democratic side are not energized about hillary clinton. this is something that energizes her base. whatever her base is. >> precisely. of course, once she starts talking about that, then she gets into the contest with senator sanders and he claims this is my issue. who would want this as their issue? they can have it. >> all right, judge napolitano, tackling economics today. thank you, judge. >> off to d.c. see you soon. >> watch you tonight on "special report." meanwhile, coming up, a first for the united states, the first syrian family to be resettled just arrived in kansas city. there they are right there. home of the royals. talk about it at the top of the hour. a college charging students a fee to fund a scholarship for illegal immigrants.

4:06 am
maria bartiromo said i'm from new york, what do you mean about this? he said it's because donald trump gave a lot of money to liberal politicians. >> and trump got big cheers when he brought that up on long island. >> you know, lyin' ted came here today. he couldn't draw a hundred people. a hundred people. do you remember during the debate when he started lecturing me on new york values like we're no good? like we're no good. and i started talking to him about the world trade center, the bravery. >> usa, usa, usa! >> who could have rebuilt that? there was never anything like it in this country. the worst attack in the history of the united states. the bravery that was shown was incredible. we all lived through it. we all know people that died and i've got this guy standing over there looking at me, talking

4:08 am
is going to pay for it. you're going to build it and he said it was half baked. your reaction? >> well, his whole administration is half baked. they don't know what they're doing. i e plained how they'll pay for it and when you look at the military and the money we're losing, taking care of other countries, that frankly we can take of, but they have to pay u. we're losing a fortune and the big thing is on trade. every single trade deal is a disaster. now you look at the deal made with iran which is turning out to be catastrophic. even obama is now saying they probably made a mistake. he doesn't want to admit it. it was a mistake. i could have told him that a year ago. when you talk about president obama he's a total catastrophe. he has been an incompetent president and i think it's being revealed. >> is he obsessed in a way with you and your candidacy? are you surprised with a sitting president with so much on his
4:09 am
table to be talking about it? >> well, he's talking about it a lot. he doesn't like the idea of having a secure border. we'll have a secure border and a wall. i got the endorsement of 16,500 border patrol folks. nobody has ever seen anything like that. >> man oh, man. you could tell -- i watched the whole event last night. he really loves being back in new york and according to brand-new polls that came out yesterday, new york republicans really love him. he is currently at 52% followed in second place by john kasich who has 25% and ted cruz is lagging behind at 17%. >> so that's one of the reasons why he wanted governor kasich to drop out. to make sure he goes over 50. i thought it was interesting to bring up that mexico is so concerned about their -- how they're perceived in america right now, they're rotating out the ambassadors. they're starting to say oh my goodness, the fact is the imbalance in trade and the immigration issue is making us look bad. we have to raise our profile. they're essentially getting marketing people in response to
4:10 am
donald trump -- >> saying that we want mexico to pay for the wall? >> yeah. also, talking about the border patrol. he mentioned 12,000. "the new york times" were not happy about that they ripped the border patrol for supporting trump. they'll be up next to talk about that. >> excellent job out in long island last night. >> can you hold that up? >> i'm going to hold this up right now. "the new york daily news" which no longer is actually a newspaper, but really working for hillary clinton, this is the headline this morning. take the "f" and "u" train, ted. this is what they say because of his comments on new york values. garrett tenny has the latest. it did not work out well for him yesterday. >> no. folks in new york have not forgotten the criticisms of the new york values. one of them in the high school in the bronx was cancelled altogether after students wrote a letter to their principal asking her not to let cruz come, according to "the new york daily news." then at a meet and greet at a
4:11 am
local restaurant, fewer than a hundred people showed up and several protesters were tossed out after welcoming cruz to the neighborhood. >> ted cruz has no business being in the bronx! this is an imgramentd -- immigrant community. we deal with climate change every day. he says it doesn't exist. we are the poorest congressional district in the country and to receive this right wing bigot is an insult! >> reporter: on the democratic side after his big win in wisconsin, bernie sanders was campaigning in philadelphia but he had anything but brotherly love when talking about his democratic rival, hillary clinton. who said earlier in the day that sanders hadn't done his homework on the issues when she was asked if she thought sanders was qualified to be president. sanders shot back with this. >> she has been saying lately that she thinks that i am quote/unquote not qualified to be president. i don't think that you are qualified if you get $15 million from wall street through your
4:12 am
super pac. i don't think you are qualified if you've supported every disastrous trade agreement which cost us millions of jobs. >> sanders has all the momentum after winning six democratic contests in a row. back to you all. >> thank you. ted cruz, you know, yesterday was his victory lap because he did so well in wisconsin. and then he wound up with that bronx cheer. >> yeah. he picked the wrong place. we were saying what a great organization he has. whoever booked him -- in the high school that's embarrassing when they cancelled on him. whoever sent him on the street and didn't secure the place, that's embarrassing. >> i think he went there because the local or state delegate minister had arranged for the event. it didn't work out. >> know your audience and the area. a woman says she was on the operating table and her doctors

well, last week the border patrol council supported a candidate and they put their energy and their support behind trump. and now "the new york times" is slamming the council for its endorsement. they're mocking them. the editorial board writing something like this. mr. trump's immigration views are driven by defining ignorance, they should be embraced by a union or the face of the immigration policies of the united states is appalling. what does that group actually feel about "the new york times," after all they represent 17,000 border patrol agents and these are pretty harsh words. joining us right now is brandon judd with his reaction.
4:18 am
welcome. i know donald trump is thrilled to have you. what's your reaction to being called out by "the new york times"? >> brian, thanks for having me. first off, "the new york times" article it's laughable. what happened to journalistic integrity? it's supposed to -- i realize that it's an op-ed, but you would think that the editors would have at least fact checked the things that were written. that article is littered with just flatout untruths. >> one of them says the vast majority of the 11 million unauthorized immigrants or illegal aliens are living in this country and they're not criminals. they don't behave like criminals and they go on to say that the facts show more people are leaving the u.s. to go back to mexico than are coming here. >> i'd love to know where they got those facts from. first off, every week we're hearing atrocious stories about people who came here illegally that are committing crimes against the citizens of this country. it's our government's
4:19 am
responsibility to protect these citizens, yet our government is ignoring our citizens and they're putting our citizens behind illegal aliens that are here in this country. >> right. and you think it's getting worse at the border, they say it's getting less. it's getting better and they prove it by saying deportations are down. if you go back to 2012, you have 409,849. then you go back to today, 235,000. so isn't it getting better with less deportations? >> no, brian. actually, it's the -- the numbers are on the rise. they said "the new york times" said that for the last couple of years are the numbers reason on the decline. that's absolutely incorrect. the numbers are on -- the numbers continue to increase each year. it's amazing that they would have made the statements they made without editing or at least fact checking.
4:20 am
>> his plan is detailed -- donald trump's plan in "the washington post." this is one thing they said about you. your endorsement. he said it's a demonstration of monumental dimness. so they're actually getting personal. your reaction? >> well, again, their article was completely laughable. it's not true first off. second off, we have the first amendment rights to voice our opinions. border patrol agents whether they're paid by taxpayers or not, they have the right to voice their opinions. >> gotcha. i got you, brandon judd. brandon judd has come out for donald trump and put up with the slings and arrows, but his thousands of people are behind him. thanks so much. >> thank you, appreciate it. all right. coming up straight ahead, a college charging students a fee to fund a scholarship for illegal immigrants. we're going to tell you where this is happening. and we're answering your top three financial questions this morning, like should you take a loan to pay off your credit card debt? that story is next.

4:26 am
off that debt? your answer? >> well, i would say definitely keep the attitude of trying to get out of debt. if you're able to do a balance transfer or some type of unsecured debt, that's fine. but the key is we don't want to tap into home equity. we don't want to consolidate the debt. we want to stay focused and attack it and get it out of our lives. when we get out of debt we give ourselves a raise. >> this is eva from north carolina. my daughter is 17, we have nothing saved for her college. i'm scrambling to help her save for college and we have no money saved for retirement and a huge mortgage. what should we ould tell eva tha situation that a lot of people find themselves in, but here's the issue. they can't leave off saving for retirement for the sake of their kids' college savings. there are many opportunities for the kid to get to school. via scholarships, maybe working. even community college. but the only way they're going to have money for retirement is if they save for it.

4:28 am
themselves free they can throw more money towards retirement. >> all right. even though they get that 5% match. free money people say. >> people will look at it that way. but if you think of the debt that's at 12% or 14%, the issue is that you're going to pay on 12% or 14% debt much longer. than you would in gaining the 5%. so here's the deal. getting out of debt is not about math, but about getting freedom. i want them to run toward it, be mad at that student loan. get that thing out of your life. then you can focus on preparing for your future. >> there you go. all right. >> thanks, chris. >> chris hogan, joining us live from nashville. thanks. coming up a disturbing story. a woman was on the operating table and her doctors were making fun of her weight. the recordings being revealed this morning. and you know her from her roles on "father of the pride" and "according to jim" and much more. kimberly williams-paisley, the wife of brad paisley, joins us with a story close to her heart. >> come on in. >> hi, kimberly.

5:25 am
what was your thought? >> i was a little bummed out to be honest. just because i think that whenever you see racism where it isn't kind of reduces the conversation and makes it harder to talk about when legitimate incidents happen. but i do understand from a psychological perspective where the kind of mindset for the outreach could come from. >> okay. camille, what did you see when you saw this picture? >> yeah, i got to say that my sentiment was a lot the same. only i -- while i understand where the sentiment comes from where the outrage comes from, i don't have a great deal of respect for it. i think there's something really problematic happening in this country. this conversation about race we have been having for so long is highly dysfunctional and doesn't seem to be working particularly well. i really wish gap had responded in a different way to it. >> well, gap actually apologized. let me read their statement. we appreciate the conversation that is taking place and we are sorry to anyone who's offended. what's wrong with that statement? >> i don't know your capacity to imagine something as offensive,
5:26 am
that's something that everybody else ought to care about a great deal. there were a lot of people who want to belong to something important and they're finding opportunities to crusade about just -- just about anything. my heart goes out to the little girls who are very talented gymnasts from everything i can tell who have this really cool opportunity to be in a gap ad. now it's been diminished and denigrated in this way. these two girls are sisters, there's nothing here. the capacity to imagine something there doesn't make it something we should care about. >> is it generational though? a lot of people in the younger generation will look at that picture and say what's racist about this? i don't see it. until it's explained to them. >> it's interesting because, yeah, like i think i'm the younger generation. >> you are. >> i'm just glad to see another black girl on tv, you know? i'm totally -- i get the little sister vibe. it's lovely. however, if you're from an older generation, where your representation in the media, the if you're a black woman and the only time you see a black woman

on tv is objectified you're sensitive to any image like that. i think it speaks to the pain and you can acknowledge it. i think gap had an opportunity to say, you know, i really understand this pain and let's go in a different way rather than backing off and -- >> where was the outrage last year when the rules were reversed? >>yeah, there wasn't any outrage. i think it's important to note and important to note there's not a situation where black women are primarily or even mostly or -- i don't know that i can't say frequently because it happens. but depicted as sluts or slaves on television. they have dominant roles in hollywood and the white house has a black woman in it and is prominently featured in a big way. there's positive, affirmative depictions of black people for decades now. it's ridiculous to pretend things are otherwise and we keep doing it and we keep manufacturing these

5:46 am
i mean, you know to get veterans the care we deserve, that we earn by defending this nation. however, the v.a. is doing everything they can to make sure that they sabotage the program, making sure that doctors aren't getting paid. that veterans are getting sent to checkships to make sure -- collections to make sure that the choice program isn't working. >> what is that? >> just last week the union i belong to as a v.a. employee said that the choice program needed to be scrapped. this is the same union that after i testified on the hill before the senate, you know, union attorney by the name of jay ward morrow came out and bashed my testimony. he didn't bash it for being inaccurate, but bashed it for it not being union friendly or carrying forward the union agenda. i said what is the union agenda? if it's not for bettering the veterans, i won't be backing the union. i never heard back from them. >> i looked this up. i could only find a new news

5:53 am
very good, especially at the beginning of the program. >> why did they want to go in undercover? >> they were wanting to help out and help me improve the clark county jail, but i think they were passionate to help out overall. that came from their backgrounds too. >> how did that go over with your staff who didn't know that was happening? >> i was most nervous when i told the staff about what we did, but they were appreciative and it was a good response. >> now we can talk about the ramifications and the results. what happened and how did it help you? >> we saw the charges, we changed some jail procedure to make the things operate better. but we went a step beyond to, when someone is released from the clark county jail, we learned from the undercovers, they were depressed and angry. you'll get a pamphlet and it says it's normal to feel these things. if it's too much, here's who you can call for help.
