brian: if you are an artist and we open one your song, feel free to write us. steve: talking about the news of the day. when president trump was running as private citizen donald trump, he promised an immigration system that would put the american worker first. there he is framed yesterday by senators purdue and also cotton. and they have got an idea that they are putting forward restrict and limit the number of people legally immigrate into this country. ainsley: called raise act. competitive application process. cut the number we let in by 50%. merit based system. if you can bring something into our economy and into our society, then you can come in. here are some the bullet points. brian: here is some of the things that they highlighted yesterday, senator perdue and senator tom cotton really worked with the president on this. cut green cards from 1 million to 500,000. eliminate immigration preferences given to extended family members, which are
referred to, ainsley the merit based system similar to canada and australia. ainsley: meaning you have to be skilled and self-sufficient and speak english. brian: that could be key. helps to speak english when you come here and also incentive to get here. steve: keep in mind that's one of the requirements to get in the country if you are going to get a green card there is english test and civics test as well. the thing about the extended family which is interesting, the currently the way it stands is anybody who knows somebody related by blood to somebody in the country can kind of get in. but, it would, instead, say okay, immediate family members, you can still come in, spouses, your children, your minor children. but it would end the preferential treatment for adult children or extended family members. only, i think it was less than 20% of those who are allowed to legally immigrate into the country are actually brought into the country based on employment skills. which is shocking. ainsley: the president was talking about it yesterday.
listen to what he said. >> this legislation will not only restore our competitive edge in the 21st century, but it will restore the sacred bonds of trust between america and its citizens. this legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling american families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts america first. this competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak english, financially support themselves and their families, and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy. brian: they don't want people that are going to go right on welfare, right on unemployment. that's really the focus. some republicans are against it some democrats said i need to hear more about this. we can do this thing walk through the committee process. try to push it forward. get everyone's input in. most people agree we have to modernize our immigration system because last time we
country who speaks english outside of great britain and australia? is that your personal experience? >> there are of course people who come -- >> that's what you said it shows your cosmopolitan bias. >> it sounds like you are trying to engineer the ethnic flow of people into this country. >> that is one of the most outrageous, insulting, ignorant and foolish things
have you ever said and for you that's still a really the notion you think this is racist bill is so wrong and so insulting. brian: why it's so good for the administration. rather than a spokesperson know the nitty gritty everything from tax reform to immigration reform. steven miller is extremely strong. i find it hard to believe people look at that exchange and don't understand and cannot see that the reporter is trying to make himself famous with next change. ainsley: jim acosta was quoting the poem at the bottom of the statue of liberty. and steve miller knew enough about it to show that poem was added later. it does show he was educated and prepared for all of this. this is ♪ just a heated issue. whether or not it's going to pass, i don't know. they need 60 votes, actually. because it can't go under reconciliation because it's not about revenue. they need 60 votes. is that going to happen? steve: it's doubtful. ainsley: lindsey graham is not
for it is he one of the republican senators. brian: the thing is, ainsley, maybe they don't love the tom cotton idea or love every word of the david perdue and tom cotton idea. work it out. start working it through. democrats will agree that this thing has to be modernized. everyone is focused on illegals. ainsley: democrats agree? do you think? steve: i don't know. brian: we need immigration reform. not just about illegals. small portion. this is the beginning of a debate that could be worth going through. ainsley: let us know what you think. send us your comments firstname.lastname@example.org. steve: meanwhile the associated press is reporting now that apparently on saturday the new chief of staff john f. kelly apparently picked up the phone and called the attorney general of the united states jeff sessions. and keep in mind, jeff sessions, ever since he immediately recused himself upon getting the job, he has gotten away with criticism from the president of the united states on social media and, remember, he was asked so what is going to happen with jeff sessions and the
president responded time will tell. brian: i think this is great. what he set up with bla this marine general has set up we know about his reputation. he worked under former secretary panetta. and we know that he was a fine chief of staff by almost all accounts for bill clinton. he says kelly is going to be straightening things out. is he already setting up a chain of commands where people get to the president but have to tell him they are going in or get a screen first. the normal order of process. i think he is going to make the president's job light years easier. he has let some people go. some say this is mcmaster winning out over bannon. steve: so what john kelly told mr. sessions was your job is safe. don't worry about what the president has said in public. ainsley: jeff sessions he heard the warning cries. he heard the president was disappointed in him for the recusal. then he said i'm going to start going after the leakers. we are going to start getting tougher and they are pleased with that. brian: by the way rick perry is looked at as somebody who
might be replacing kelly at homeland because we know he has done a fine job at energy. ainsley: jillian has breaking news for us. jillian: this is update on breaking story we brought you yesterday. let's start right now with this fox news alert. we now know two american soldiers were killed and four more hurt in attack on nato convoy in afghanistan. the unidentified army troops coming under far in the kandahar province. bomber in a pickup truck setting off explosion as the convoy returned to base. nine troops have been killed in afghanistan so far this year. we have another fox news alert right now second body is pulled from smoldering rubble after a gas beings motion school in minneapolis. utility area leveling part of the building and setting it on fire. six others are hurt. none of them though are children. investigators believe contractors may have ruptured a gas line huge earthquake strikes oklahoma overnight.

you gave money to the clinton foundation, you're going to get favors from the state department. that obviously is against the law, and it was never even pursued aggressively by the fbi. look, i believe that jim comey was wrong when a year ago he announced she is not going to be indicted because no reasonable prosecutor would take a case. it's not a decision for him to make and not an announcement for him to make. it's the stated reason for which president trump fired him. the statute of limitations has not yet run. there is nothing to prevent the jeff sessions department of justice from looking at all this and deciding what to present to a grand jury and seeing if the grand jury wants to indict her for, mrs. clinton for espionage. the failure to safeguard state secrets. steve: just because jami james comey came out and said not going to prosecute her nobody would. >> the statute of limitations has not yet run and as we know
from the story we are covering at this moment more evidence keeps coming forward. brian: how rare would it be to look back at a candidate and prosecute? we know when the president won he said enough. i'm looking ahead. >> you know, brian. that is a great question. it would be unheard of. and, lindsey graham, a friend of fox and of the show said we are not a banana republic and we don't use machinery of the government to go after our political opponents. steve: we have got this new evidence. >> we also don't let people skate just because of what their last name is or what positions they held in the government. brian: if she lost. people run again. what would you do last time? well, we don't worry about that. >> this is a decision made only by the president himself where he stands on, this i don't know. because he has articulated both sides of it the evidence is there. the law is there. and justice should be done. brian: unmasking thing is hovering just beneath. ben rhodes is the latest name to pop up. >> ben rhodes thing is a potential time bomb.
if he requested unmasking in order to embarrass or humiliate president-elect trump. steve: that is a report out by circuit today. >> yes. steve: all right. judge napolitano thank you for joining us live today. >> a pleasure, guys. brian: good to see you. steve: coming up on thursday, report shocking. unvetted foreigners military recruitment program. steve russell is the first to raise the alarm. he joins us live coming up shortly. brian: a veteran in his own right. james comey is not done talking. secrets to spill. millions of books to spill it. carley is here. she is walking our direction. ee? ee? take that. a breathe right nasal strip instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than allergy medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight, mouthbreathers. breathe right.
brian: former fbi director james comey getting the last word, kind of. with the multi-million-dollar book deal. this morning his message spurring social media outrage. ainsley: here to break it down for us is 24/7 reporter carley shimkus. >> good morning. we vice president heard the last from james comey. is he cashing in with major book deal. no word on the title but it is going to be coming out next spring. the interesting part is what the book is going to be about. he will write about, quote. what good, ethical leadership looks like and how it drives sound decisions. steve: he won't be able to actually spill the beans on the private conversations he had with the president of the united states because those are private conversations. >> those are private conversations. it will be interesting to see exactly what he writes. now, of course, he has made many difficult decisions during his full-time as fbi director. not all of them it is kind of up for debate if all of them were, quote. sownged decisions. so, of course, social media is weighing in. arthur tweeted no one saw this coming said no one ever and the book will be called how i
got away with everything. and celebrity gossip site creator perez hilton he also weighed in tweeting comey caught tailor rigging the election and now he got caught. #boycott this peculiar. people saying they are not going to read it i'm sure a lot of people will though. let's talk about a kid sent a letter to the white house. pickle sent something in. ainsley: you remember pickle? so white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders kicked yesterday's press briefing off with another adorable letter from a little boy named frank with a special request. take a listen. >> it would be my honor to mow the white house lawn for some weekend for you. i would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. frank, i'm happy to report back to you that i just spoke with the president. he also wanted me to invite to you spend a morning here at the white house with the grounds keeper. >> there you go. young frank is going to make a very good husband one day.
he is going to be mowing the rose garden lawn. steve: that's 12 acres. ainsley: just the rose garden. >> hopefully somebody will give him 4re78 monday made. that's all he needs. ainsley: ivanka met with military spouses. >> she said today we met with military spouses and learned what this administration can do to support our non-uniformed heroes. this is very important. because military spouses, of course face increased challenges when their partners go off to serve. a lot of people are praising her for this on social media. let's take a look at this tweet from stan who says god bless you for that. my daughter-in-law is currently braving my son's first deployment. very, very personal for him there. steve: very good. >> isn't that great? steve: a lot going on on the twitter verse. >> always busy. brian: listen to you on channel 115. every 15 minutes you get the news. straight ahead, college students beware your safe

>> the trump administration took a big step today toward fulfilling a central campaign promise by endorsing immigration reform bill. >> this competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak english, financially support themselves and their families. and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy. >> we bring over a million immigrants into this country a year. that's like adding the population of montana every single year. >> the bill would sharply restrict immigration based simply on family reunification. the white house press corps hated it. >> this whole nation well they have to learn english before they get to the united states, are we just going to bring in people from great britain and australia.
>> jim, i can honestly say i am shocked at your statement. >> fast-breaking news as well. president trump just moments ago signed the new russia sanctions bill. >> this legislation reaffirms the president's strong commitment to ongoing sanctions with russia to make it clear that they are their destabilizing behaviors are not acceptable to the united states. steve: the dow closing above 22,000 for the first time in wall street history. >> american corporations are making more money now than they have ever made before. that's a basic prop for the stock market. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ saddle up my horse ♪ i ride it to the city ♪ i make a lot of noise ♪ because the girls they are
are so pretty. brian: i feel like i went to the jukebox and i put a quarter in and i got the song i actually wanted to hear. steve: you requested this song? brian: i requested this song in the first hour. ainsley: explain why you are talking about this song. brian: john rich directly tweeted me and said thanks so much for "fox & friends" giving us love this morning. we love the show and thanks for playing their song. i guess sometimes our control room pays attention an and puts their headsets on. ainsley: that's how popular they are. they had another song planned they threw that away. john, toga and sean. you are awesome. brian: keep in mind he did win the apprentice. steve: that's right. it all ties. in he won the apprentice and who was the guy who fired people? brian: wait, i know. donald trump. steve: i was thinking the other guy. you are right. donald trump now president of the united states. yesterday he went to the roosevelt room he was there
with u.s. senators purdue and cotton. they have got a bill that they are proposing to put american workers called the raise act. essentially makes good on a promise donald trump made to have a legal, we're not talking about illegal immigration. a legal immigration system that puts the american worker first. brian: i got to apologize. i thought we would be in the full screen longer. i was touching my nose. ainsley: brown nosers wasn't really. >> a carol burnett thing. ainsley: bill called the raise act. competitive application process. you can't come in this country if this thing passes unless you are skilled, self-sufficient and if you have to speak english. brian: i think the main point is, we should do a little bit more discriminatory to what's best for america when it comes to applicants to come here. so, here is some of the principles that people are asking water cooler.
cuts green cards from 1 million to half that. eliminates immigration preferences to given extended family members. merit based system similar to canned and australia. those who read rolling stone and long for the day we had prime minister justin trudeau. if we had him, if you took his immigration policy the left would be elated. early indications are they don't think that's right. that's not what america is about. steve: two thirds of the people who come in legally have a family connection. some are spouses, some are minor children. but then there are so many that are extended family members. they are -- they got a brother who is married to a woman whose great nephew is a legal citizen. it's sometimes convoluted like that. i don't know for sure that that's the case. but, none the less, the president of the united states trying to make good on the campaign promise to put the american worker first. here he is yesterday in the roosevelt room.
>> this legislation will not only restore our competitive edge in the 21st century, but it will restore the sacred bonds of trust between america and its citizens. this legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling american families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts america first. this competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak english, financially support themselves and their families, and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy. brian: so people on the right, some have said like lindsey graham have said it will hurt my people of south korea. a lot of them need blue collar workers to work the fields, working the agricultural community. by the way, so does arkansas where senator tom cotton is. and senator perdue also from a southern state. ainsley: wouldn't that be to lindsey graham skilled, they
come in with a skill, they come in self-sufficient. they just have to speak just have to speak english. brian: i wonder why more republicans weren't read into this so they weren't getting the message from the white house why senator cotton and company couldn't have briefed them what's coming down. steve: well, because the republican party is divided. there are some republicans who are in the pro-business wing, they support increased immigration. others say that newcomers to this country make the competition unfair for the less skilled worker in the united states of america. nonetheless, this was the back drop. that was the framing bill that set up this quite a confrontation conversation between jim acosta of cnn and steven miller, who is one of the president's advisors had a little lesson about the statue of liberty. had a lot about speaking english. ainsley: quoting little poem at the bottom of the statue of liberty. steve: if you missed it, here is some of it. >> what the president is proposing here does not sound
like it's keeping n. keeping with american tradition when it comes to immigration. the statue of liberty says give me your tired, you're poor, huddled masses. it doesn't say anything about speaking english or being able to be a computer programmer. >> i don't want to get off into a whole thing about history here. but the statue of liberty is a symbol of liberty and light in the world. it's a symbol of american liberty, lighting the world. the poem that you are referring to was added later. it's not actually part of the original statue of liberty. >> the whole notion that they have to learn english before they get to the united states, are we just going to bring in people from great britain and australia? >> jim, actually, i can honestly say i am shocked at your statement that you think that only people from great britain or australia would know english. it's actually, it reveals your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree that in your mind, no, this is an amazing moment. this is an amazing moment that you think only people from great britain or australia would speak english is so
insulting to millions of hard-working immigrants who do speak english from all over the world. yeah, jim, have you honestly never met an immigrant from another country who speaks english outside of great britain and australia? is that your personal experience? >> there are, of course, sir who come from other parts of the world. >> that's what you said. it shows your cosmopolitan bias. >> it sounds like you are trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country. >> that's one of the most outrageous, insulting and foolish things that you have ever said. for you that's still a really -- the notion that you think that this is a racist bill is so wrong and so insulting. steve: here's the thing about speaking english and we could pick apart that whole conversation. one of the requirements for a green card right now is you have got to be able to speak english. there is an english test. there is also an american history test in the form of a civics test. you can -- there are certain ways you can be exempted from it, nonetheless, that's a requirement right now on the
books. brian: you can honestly make an economic argument if you get ahold of the immigration when it comes to the illegals that are here doing hard jobs and working hard, but they are not signed in. therefore, you can pay them less because they are not on the tax rolls. if you are saying if you are wondering why americans haven't gotten a pay raise it's because of a lot of it has to do with illegal immigrants doing a lot of the work that americans used to do. steve: right. buff that's the difference between illegal immigration and legal immigration. this bill addresses the people we let in. ainsley: all the president is saying, if we are going to let people, in the people that come here, we want them to be skilled. we want them to contribute to our economy. and many of you say there is nothing wrong with that we got an email from ivy who says it's amazing that americans would oppose tightening immigration laws. i'm an english speaking legal immigrant and i'm proud of it. if you want to live and work here you have to pull your weight. brian: sharon says we need to take care of americans who need help before we let them in the country. people in the inner cities are
crying for help and we need to put them first. steve: richard sent us this email and it reads it's about time people in congress put together bills that benefit the united states and not their own pocket. and while you may like this particular suggested bill, the raise act, right now slim chances of actually passing. ainsley: because you need 60 votes and you don't even have all 52 of the republicans on board such as lindsey graham. steve: the democrats won't be on board. ainsley: no. you know they won't be. many. brian: some of these states or causes might be addendums on it that could get it passed through. put it through the committee process. find out who is against it and for it find out if they have better changes. some people say it's too harsh but i understand what your approach is, try this. work it out. steve: i think there are a lot of members of congress who think oh, we're letting in 1 million legally right now? let's keep it up. ainsley: you might wonder what the system is now. it's a lottery system based now. steve: in some cases that's right.

a mechanical malfunction stranding three men on a bungee ride at ventura county fair in california. the cage carrying riders to the top had stalled but one rider already jumped ending up stuck upside down for nearly 40 minutes. imagine that they were all able to repel safely to the ground. this, of course, happening just one week after a man was killed when he was flung off a ride at the ohio state fair. all right. get out the tissues for this one, folks, a heart warming moment when parents in texas surprised two of their daughters with a new edition to the family. >> oh a baby. >> what is that? >> it's a baby sister. >> baptist church director shane pruitt and his wife casey showing off their newly adopted baby girl. they named kelsey marie. the pruts already have four children. two by birth, two others by adoption. you can see the reaction. the kids are just so overwhelmed with emotion and actually, i was reading up on the story this morning.
they got the call july 25th. a week and a half ago about the baby girl. they met with the birth mom at 8:00 a.m. the next morning. they said this happened so fast that they didn't have time to really talk to the kids and they said let's make it a surprise. ainsley: that is so sweet. i love that the kids' reaction. good for them. seem like amazing people. steve: indeed. meanwhile, coming up, the report is shocking. unvetted foreigners infiltrating a military recruitment program in this country. congressman steve russell was the first one to sound the alarm about this. he is going to join us live next. ainsley: mark zuckerberg 2020? the new sign that he has his eye on the white house. ♪ this is ♪ the pathway ♪ ♪ so being cool comes naturally. hmm. i can't decide if this place is swag or bling.

over foreign infiltration and enrollees who are now unaccounted for. first lawmaker to sound the alarm on this is oklahoma congressman steve russell. is he also an iraq war veteran who led the mission to capture saddam hussein. he joins us today from oklahoma city. congressman, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: all right. so there are concerns of infiltration. what does the worry these people might do? >> well, i think that any time you don't have a proper vetting background of folks that could enter from a foreign country, even with special skills, they could do an awful lot of harm. especially when they have been hired for those special skills. they have access to things that under the program were even titled in its name violates to the national interest. steve: sure, i know this program got started under george w. bush. they were looking for translater and other people from the region, who would be great to have ache experts. but in the introduction i mentioned that some are
unaccounted for. explain that. >> well, we're certainly still working with the department of defense and investigating this. i think it should be pointed out that the department of defense is the one that is reviewing this program because of concerns that they have. i think that's very, very important to note. there has been a lot of discussion about the fairness or this or that of those that maybe are being placed in a suspended status. but when it comes to our national security, i think we need to give the department of defense a little bit of space. steve: okay. i know in 2016, it sounds -- we were chatting earlier you said the defense department authorized 5,000 more of these people to become part of the program. do you think our federal government can adequately vet 5,000 people and allow them into the military? >> it's possible. but when they are coming from foreign background, the vetting gets particularly more difficult. and i think it's important to
note that they were hired under or were assessed under very specific criteria. medical background, hard language skills, things that would be considered vital to our troops, but that's not how they are being employed. steve: all right. congressman steve russell, republican from oklahoma. we thank you very much for joining us live. >> thank you, steve. steve: by the way, the department of defense, officials there said the program is still active but acknowledged new applications have currently been suspended. perhaps because of just that worry. meanwhile, have you seen what's happening down in venezuela? look at that the socialist country diving deeper into chaos. so why did bernie sanders once say that's what the american dream looks like? we're going to talk about that. and college students beware, your safe space no longer so safe. comedian adam carolla just took his fight against pc universities to capitol hill.

elvira, why are we seeing bernie sanders salute the great socialist empire in venezuela? >> because we with all due respect, is he what the communist and the socialists call a useful fool meaning those people who believe that the castro revolution and chavez revolution brought heaven on earth to the cuban people. that's the problem. brian: then we watch what he did a couple days ago. he arrested the people that ran against him. because what they posted on social media. he makes up a bunch of votes that he gets a bunch of fictitious votes to put him in power, prop him up. and since he has control of the army, there is no sign of this letting up. meanwhile, this is what bernie sanders says in support of venezuela in 2013. these are the people that have also supported him, too. you have got sanders, jose serrano. jesse jackson, sean penn, oliver stone and michael moore.
why are we celebrating them? >> yeah. well, you know what they do in they should go to havana orca raucous and live there more than a week without dollars. you will see how much they are going to love what they see and what they have to go through. look at what the vendsen people are doing. they are starving and crossing to colombia to buy toilet paper and buy basic necessities. that's the problem that the left does not see what communism has brought to this hemisphere. the good thing in this occasion and i just want to point out that the united states did not present or implement embargo against venezuela just like it did to cuba. we have kept social, trade commercial, financial and diplomatic relations with venezuela. full-fledged. so now the vendsens cannot say that what's happening in the country is because of the yankee imperialists. oh, no, we are still buying their oil and, still, trump administration has not decided on the what we call the
nuclear option. which is to stop buying the venezuelan oil because we are their number one partner. if we don't pay for that oil, which is 70% of their economy, their economy, will collapse. brian: meanwhile we have enough oil for ourselves. meanwhile president trump unveiled his through senator cotton and purdue what he would like to see when it comes to our new immigration system, legal immigration, cutting green cards from 1 million to 500,000 and eliminate immigration preferences given to extended family members and make it merit-based similar to canada and australia. how does that play out in places in south and central america? >> well, i think that basically what we have to look at here is that the administration is basing this whole new proposal on immigration, based on fear. and i think that's what where we have to -- and hispanic community that i represent and the anglo american conservatives. we have to come to terms and understand that there is fear.
and that immigrants are not coming to take anything away from the americans. the american worker or the hispanic american worker. we're coming to contributed. and it's basically the fear of the forces of assimilation. that's a key word we need to repeat and we need to understand. and, yesterday was mentioned by senator perdue. assimilation. and the forces of assimilation, according to the reviews, are fatigued. and they need to be -- they need to be relaxed. brian: right. >> immigration reform, it's very complex. that's what we need to sit at the table and create a immigration reform law that includes legal and illegal. for students and for everybody. brian: there might be a element of fear and element of savvy. what's best for america. it's not equal access to our country. we are americans. we know would he be here. it doesn't mean everyone can get here. they want to set up a criteria that isn't 60 years old. >> and this that's fine.
65. 1965 law is the one that started this flood in 50 years, 60 million people, most of them hispanic, that's why we are 55 million people, 18% of the population, the largest minority in the country. i agree with you, let's revise it. let's allow those that are good for the country. but with a heart. obviously, we are the biggest and the most benevolent and the best country in the world we need to continue being that absolutely, we need to have people who will contribute. people that know some english. i know that's a very sticky point that we need to revise. but people that are good for the country. brian: gotcha. >> immigrants are good for the country. brian: elvira, you know what's good for us is to get out and roll commercials so we can continue to do segments like this. elvira salazar thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> thank you. brian: al gore comparing climate change battle to civil

>> when i was a boy growing up a lot of time in the south, i remember when the civil rights movement was gaining momentum. i will tell you the recess reresistance to civil rights laws was just as fierce as solving the climate. ultimately we passed a political tipping point peel people realized it's a question of right and wrong. steve: got our former vice
president al gore comparing climate struggle to the civil rights movement. let's talk to republican strategist and founder of the caldwell strategic consulting group gee anna caldwell joins us from atlanta. good morning to you. >> thank you for having me. >> what did you make of our former veep talking about how climate change relates to the civil rights movement? >> you know, i found it to be sad that al gore and other liberal elites like him continue to build their dishonest, intellectually dishonest arguments on the back of african-americans. to compare sincere struggle like civil rights where people were lynched their families were destroyed they had to run out of the south because of the diplomatic struggle to compare that to climate change shows the democratic party is not ready to modify forward and offer real opportunities to everyone and the policy solutions. they want to continue to use
the same played talking points that they have used in the past with things like even the lbgt community, nothing against anyone, of course. but civil rights and the fact that you were born a particular color does not compare to any other fight. brian: do you know else i find astounding that al gore has still gotten his own act together leave alone his private jet trips. he also has a house that has roughly 21 times more for electricity than even should. he has 20 room mansion using over 230,000-kilo was of electricity over the past 12 months. so everybody else should cut back. he says that every day looking at the weather report is like the book of revelations but he doesn't want to put a dimmer on his mansion. >> it's the liberal philosophy of do as i say not as i do. that's exactly what that is. ainsley: let's talk about chicago. i know you are from chicago originally and the violence there is just over the top. the numbers are staggering. the numbers just in july have
pushed chicago's 2017 homicide total past 400. what do you think needs to be done to stop this? >> you know what? this segment here is very, very personal to me. back in on memorial day, my younger sibling, my younger kid brother was in a car with two of his friends on the south side of chicago when two men walked up and riddled the car with 25 bullets. thankfully my younger brother lived, but his best friend died in his arms. when i hear about the violence in chicago, obviously it impacted me personally. but it impacts so many others. when i learned about the situation, i immediately scheduled a meeting with the trump administration, senior officials over there at the trump administration. and i went to them and i told them what happened. and i said it's time for president trump to keep his commitment to send the feds into chicago. and as you know, recently federal agents did go into chicago. it shouldn't stop there.
because we see, with the mayor like rahm emanuel, who is a very dishonest politician, who clearly has shown that blah lives don't matter to rahm emanuel. black votes matter to rahm emanuel. more importantly, keeping the sanctuary city status is what's important to rahm emanuel. the african-americans of that city and other groups who are concerned with the violence should stand up, band together, and vote out that very dishonest mayor. because at this time, he has shown where his real consideration is. and it is not with the violence on the south and west sides of chicago. and even now in the downtown area. brian: the thing is, regardless of where you stand with rahm emanuel, just look at the record. how does he possibly run on that? how could he honestly say that he has got a strategy that's even been implemented to be somewhat effective? it's almost been ignored. >> and that's absolutely true. and the reason that he doesn't run on any particular record is because he knows that it's failed. so the only benefit that he
can do to try to prop himself up to possibly win an election is to be all in on sanctuary cities. and illegal immigrants. i tell you, it's disenfranchising many in that city because you are looking to legitimately protect some, not all, within sanctuary cities that are there illegally have committed crimes. so, with that being the case, what message are you really communicating to chicagoens. are you the mayor of all people or are you the mayor of a select few? right now he has demonstrated he is the mayor of a select few. he is personally impacting the people in my very own family. and it is disheartening. steve: how your brother, jim? >> i'm thankful to say we moved him right out of chicago two weeks later. so he is now in california. and i'm thankful that he is safe. he feels better that he is in a safer environment. i'm telling you, lock, when i was growing up in chicago had you to be a part of the life. when people were shot. >> part of gang activity or gangs. that happened on a number of occasions. now you can be an infant baby.
you can be a senior citizen. it can be me, you, or anyone else just walking the streets of chicago and literally be shot. so when president trump said hey, you can walk outside and be shot. liberals were outraged by that but it's simply the truth. i don't agree with everything president trump says or how he says it. in this instance my personal experience agrees with what president trump says. and absolutely i appreciate the president and president trump, i'm sure you are listening, i have a special message for you. continual to keep the heat on chicago and its politicians because they clearly have demonstrated they will not do anything to prevent the violence. especially if it's not lining their pockets. so we need you, sir, in chicago to keep the heat up. because that seems like that's the only time that they are concerned with the violence in chicago, not by the citizens that are dying in their city on a daily basis. steve: the numbers tell the story. ainsley: your brother is so fortunate to have you in his life. you helped move him. you helped get the federal troops in there to clean up chicago. thank you for awful that you are doing.

>> striking back. medvedev lashing outs in facebook book calling the sanctions a declaration of full-fledged economic war threatening that it ends hopes for improving relations with the u.s. and demonstrates that, quote, the trump administration's total weakness in handling over executive power in the most humiliating way. the sanctions were also aimed at north korea and iran in particular. the escalating tensions with the hermit kingdom's continued icbm missile test the last came within minutes of hitting an air france plane on friday. guys, we can expect to hear more about this tonight when the president travels to the big super sandy store arena in huntington, virginia. a state that heavily endorsed president trump. >> you could be right. griff, thank you very much. tomorrow pete hegseth is going to join us live getting reaction to president trump's valley. join pete. he is going to have breakfast

immigrants from about a million to 500,000 over 10 years. ainsley: there is some other points also that you should know. it is competitive application process. it is a merit-based system. which means you have to be skilled, you have to be self-sufficient and you have to speak english. brian: also going to, that merit-based system will cap number of refugees at 50,000, reduced low-skilled and unskilled labor immigration. i think that is the negotiation. you need low skilled and you need low-skilled and i think you need people working class, that is how you work your way up in our country. we just want you to sign in when you come. there is so much work to do. if you saw the report yesterday, showed home building prices, basically half the construction workers have just disappeared because of a crackdown on illegal immigration. my feeling get those people, new wave of people to sign in, get your green cards, got your work

parents use marijuana every day. 59% of moms do the same. here with her take on this trend is the host of truth exchange, kathy barnett. kathy is a mom. you know her, see her sometimes on our panel. >> yes, thank you. ainsley: does this shock you? >> it doesn't really shock me. when you look at the move of our culture, moving toward basically do whatever makes you feel good but i think one of the major issues is that because so many in our culture are glamorizing the use of recreational marijuana, i believe we are, as a result, we are misdiagnosing why people are actually using it in the first place. take a look on google and read some of the art cans you find there. one would think it is quite fashionable right now to smoke recreationally. ainsley: they glamorize it? >> they glamorize it all the time. in fact, i mean, i guess it really is cooler to say i smoke a little weed on the side versus having to admit that you have an
opiate addiction or to admit that you have a mental illness as well. according to the survey that you're referencing, women are actually replacing antidepressant opiates as well as alcohol with marijuana. so they are essentially self-messed indicating and it is kind of like an m 1rifle with machete. they're both very dangerous. ainsley: some would argue not as dangerous that they're smoking marijuana and not drinking as parents. you hear parents want to be good example to their kids. >> i know. ainsley: this could be a gateway performance-enhancing drug. 63% of these women in the survey were smoking pot every day. >> every day. on average they spend more on marijuana than they do on tobacco, alcohol, personal care combined. many would tell us it is not
addictive. yet they use it every day. ainsley: you think it is excuse? trying to push narrative, it is okay it is not dangerous and they want to feel better about what they're doing? >> there are differing opinions or reasons for wanting to push it. when you talk to legislators, colorado just got $200 million in tax revenue off $1 billion in sales. so they're impotent. ainsley: this is interesting. if you watching in california majority of your coworkers might be high. the study says 58% of working professionals consume cannabis. 31% consume cannabis on the job. 31% could be at work today if you're high. >> what is interesting about that number, 1% work in the technical fooleds. now that could be your local apple store or the air traffic control, on airplane you're -- we really don't know.
but nonetheless, i really believe we're missing the opportunity by misdiagnosing why people are actually using it. we have opiate as well as mental health disorder crisis in our nation right now. many people are self-medicating and masking it. ainsley: thank you so much for being with us, kathy. >> great to see you. ainsley: next on the run-down, would you alter the dna of your baby if it meant saving their life? it's a real possibility. we told you about this story earlier. students are outraged after a texas university, smu, forcing them to move the 9/11 memorial. this morning the governor of texas is getting involved. we'll tell you what he is saying. former fbi director james comey is not done talking yet. he has more secrets to spill. it is in his new book. ♪

to other out door displays to less prominent location in the future. some suggested it was, there was liberal outrage over the triggering that messages like those flags were sending to some students. ainsley: i just don't understand the controversy. it is american flag. it is not supposed to be divisive. it is supposed to represent all of us, of all the american people and soldiers fought for our great country and sacrifices they made. steve: the university, in a policy they first started a week ago, they said they were trying to avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, harassing. apparently those flags did that. ainsley: harmful and harassing. steve: they heard the heat and changed policy. brian: this is what smu said. a portion of the dallas hall lawn used by campus community members as place for studying. outdoor classes in variety of university events throughout the year. the new location is momac park. it is open and central located

every time some murderer goes it kills someone. it didn't work. it didn't keep cities safe. thankfully under president trump's leadership we're seeing fundamental change in the culture how we deal with criminals. as you mentioned prosecutions up 23%. standing shoulder to shoulder with law enforcement the way a president should, supporting rights of law-abiding gun owners. these are not mutually, exclusive ideas. they're supported by overwhelming majority of american people. more importantly they will save lives. that is ultimately the measurement of any of these crime control programs. steve: chris, it is clear when he was running for president donald trump said, look you make me president of the united states i will do something about the flood of illegal guns in this country but explain to me, because i don't quite get this part. why wouldn't the obama administration crack down on guns that are illegally owned? what is the logic in that? >> there is no logic. it is a, the sad truth it was all about politics. this was the ultimate community organizer. organize these communities to
push his political career. then continue to organize these communities to push his political agenda. the sad truth that nearly 4,000 people were murdered in his hometown during his presidency. had he taken the approach of, leadership of donald trump, and attorney general sessions and general flynn on cracking down on criminals who misuse firearms there would be people alive today who aren't. real tragedy, it should forever sustain his legacy. brian: steve: chris, prosecutions for certain federal gun crimes dropped 40% while president obama was in office. yet his administration tried to routinely take away second amendment rights by law-abiding gun owners. what do you mean by that. >> federal jurisdictions chicago ranked last or next to last on prosecutions of criminals misusing firearms. at same time it was illogical approach to solving crime, he pushed gun control agenda. as rahm emanuel said, never let a crisis go to waste. instead of dealing with
underlying problems, what this last president did was shoulder burden of his failed policies on law-abiding gun owners and national rifle association fought back every day. we continue to do that, when the left media tries to support the politicians who want to take that approach. donald trump thanks to his leadership is doing something about this underlying problem. it will make these cities safe. it will save lives. steve: chris isn't chicago exhibit a more gun controls aren't needed? when you look at cities across the country for instance, new york, chicago, they have more gun control than any other cities? yet chicago it's a terrible problem. >> important to realize what gun control is. gun control is this idea if you impose restrictions on all law-abiding americans, criminals will somehow start to obey the law when by definition they break the law. crime control, what the president is doing is focusing on those individuals who out in chicago, out in washington, d.c., baltimore and other cities where nra members live and want to live in safe communities,
