[laughter] ♪ we'll have a house party ♪ we don't need nobody ♪ turn your tv off ♪ bring that boom box out ♪ we'll wake up all the neighbors pete: party. rachel: i'm waiting for ed to go and do that dance that the guy did at the airplane. [laughter] ed: i miss you guys. i was away a last week. pete: did you go to hawaii. ed: nancy pelosi is in hawaii. my son is looking at college already which is scary. rachel: how old is he? ed: he is 17. it goes by fast. got a little bit of fun in
florida but also did a little bit of work and family time, so it was nice. pete: nice. well-deserves. pete: merry christmas, happy new year, sort of. rachel: i'm glad you are back. ed: i got a christmas text from pete i thought maybe he misses me. pete: i did. i said merry christmas. i have news we will get to that relates to ed. rachel: i got one from you but i didn't get one from ed though. ed: news breaking overnight. pete: illegal immigrants now an accused cop killer now in custody along with seven others including two other illegals and a california sheriff's outrage grows over the state's sanctuary policies after the murder of a police officer in cold blood just the night after christmas. so this guy right here, i'm not even going to dignify him by saying his name 32-year-old cop kill from her mexico. he entered the u.s. illegally through the arizona border two years ago.
two previous dui arrests because of the sanctuary state policies no deportations or referrals to ice. he is also a known member of a via lengths mexican street gang i don't know if i can pronounce it correctly. ed: he was trying to escape to mexico after the killing officers saying on christmas night. rachel: apparently a farm laborer. he was working illegally. and, yes, he was stopped for a dui and this coward actually took his life. pete: family members helping him escape. 280 miles south of where the murder occurred. he tried to stay there cops come in. the sheriff's department from that county come in. they actually locked him up with the handcuffs of the corporal who was killed. rachel: i love that. pete: the long ample justice made its way. rachel: gratitude of the brother who felt grateful not just that these men were captured both the killer and those who were aiding and abetting him but also that that was meaningful to them that the hand cuffs were
used. ed: president trump has tweeted. he has given speeches going back to the campaign throughout his time as president talking about sanctuary cities. sanctuary states, the danger that this presents to communities. you have seen critics mock him for his focus on that. maybe the president is proven right for focusing so hard on that. when you listen to the sheriff in that community in california laying out how the fact it's a sanctuary state led to the death of this officer. watch. >> while we absolutely need to stay focused on officer singh's service and sacrifice, we can't ignore the fact that this could have been preventable. and under sb 54 in california, based on two arrests for dui and some other active warrants that this criminal has out there, law enforcement would have been prevented, prohibited from sharing any information with ice about this criminal gang member. ladies and gentlemen, this
is not how you protect a community. >> so something is not making sense. i don't know if people just aren't getting the right information that you would think that at some points politicians would be held accountable for their actions or inactions. and, in this case, you know, it's pretty darn clear that these sanctuary city policies are leading to innocent people getting murdered. ed: devin nunes hails from the state of california. he was speaking out about this last night. it's just absolutely remarkable because you could talk about the politics. we cannot forget the family. you had the brother of officer singh weeping at this news conference with this sheriff and other law enforcement officials that haunting picture of his widow, his 5-month-old son christmas morning before he goes off to work and gets killed on christmas night by an illegal immigrant. this is real, folks. this is real u. pete: amen. it's not just illegal. let this soak in. known gang member with two previous duis. never referred to ice.
so the sanctuary state where being illegal is lyle legal and while doing something illegal, while you are there illegally you get to be protected. that's insanity of the policies that led to the death of this officer. rachel: it makes absolutely no sense. you know governor jerry brown let the family know he was going to fly the flag at half mass. when i read that i just thought to myself, what a better tribute it would be for him to end the sanctuary city laws that killed this brave, brave soldier, i mean that officer. ed: we are going to get later to a segment all about this mexican gang and more details on that. real deep dive to give you a sense of how dangerous that gang is and the situation is along the border. but, remember, this is not happening in a vacuum. it's happening in the middle of a partial government shutdown which the president of the united states has made front and center funding for the border wall. the wall on the southern border. and the president yesterday made clear he is not backing
down. series of tweets that included we'll be forced to close the southern border entirely if the obstructionist democrats do not give us the money to finish the wall and also change the ridiculous immigration laws in our country saddled with hard to believe there was a congressman and president who would approve. look, there is no evidence that a wall would have prevented this illegal immigrant from coming in. pete: we don't know. ed: i'm saying there is no evidence to prove it one of many tools we could use to crack down on illegal immigration u point is here is front and center because of sanctuary laws not necessarily because of the fight about the wall because of sanctuary states an illegal immigrant is allowed to you kill a police officer. pete: left doesn't want a wall which could have killed a cop killer we're not sure. abolish ice. they could have deported this cop killer and left wants sanctuary states which is what prevented the police from notifying the feds and deporting this dirt bag out of our country. citizens of our country
suffer. why the president would be wise to not back down. that threat of saying we will shut the whole thing down would have big economic impact. rachel: it would have huge impact. pete: affect a lot of lives and the president understands that a reflection of how serious he has taken this. rachel: he is so serious about this situation with the shutdown and what's happening at the border that he has actually cancelled his new year's eve plans. we know he wanted to go to florida for christmas. now he is saying they are saying that he is going to stay home for new year' for new. nons $89 8 nancy pelosi was $899 a night room in hawaii. ed: standard room. mar-a-lago is opulent as well. but to rachel's point the president has decided not to do new year's eve bash. is he staying at the white house to try to negotiate. nancy pelosi, we are told by the white house, has not wanted to negotiate whereas
the white house believes as we heard from mick mulvaney yesterday. he believes chuck schumer wants to cut a deal but nancy pelosi won't allow it. rich rach when i heard heard about hawaii with my husband any republican would be slaughtered for that it would be curious to see how much that is talked about on the other networks. it's a double standard. pete: rush limbaugh forever has called them limousine liberals which is what nancy pelosi personifies as she represents san francisco. here is how the media portrayed president trump rather than going to mar-a-lago beautiful property, staying at the white house also a beautiful property, because he wants a deal. he is saying i'm here because i'm ready to make a deal. this is how ed's favorite newspaper until washington, d.c. put it trump retreats from public view as
government shutdown tips over border wall fight. if i was trying to get away from the media, hawaii might be the furthest place i would go if i don't want to talk about a deal. ed: one person's cooped up is another person's negotiator. you could flip those headlines and say the president is still at work the democratic leaders are not. pete: that's right. email us at email@example.com. let us know what you think. should he hold the line and shut it down? should he own the shutdown? is it the trump shutdown the schumer shutdown. the wall shutdown that's what i think it is. let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. rachel: we will turn now to your headlines. we begin with a fox news alert. four tourists are dead after a bust hits a roadside bomb giza pyramids near auto i didn't want. the bus taken 15 tourists from vietnam to a show at the pyramid. no one has claimed responsibility for the attack. fears may have saved itself liquidate you had after getting a last-minute bid to buy out the company.
eddy lampfert submitted a bid right before friday's deadline. the offer includes purchasing 425 serious stores and employing up to 50,000 people. serious' advisors have until january 4th to decide whether esl is a qualified bidder. here is a live look in times square. police are beefing up security tort famous new year's eve celebration where they are expecting nearly 2 million people. the nypd will be watching more than 1200 security cameras. some will be on drones looking over the crowd. thousands of officers and 50 bomb sniffing dogs will also be walking the grounds and keeping pete and all his buddies there safe on new year's where he will be. pete: griff will be there too. ed: remember a friend of this program, fox news, bree bre payton died sudden be
live 26 years old. at the federalist. also appeared frequently on fox. and rachel, i know you got to know her a little bit. appeared on some programs with her. sent out a wonderful tringts on twitter. somebody who just died far, far too young. rachel: i have to tell you she always delivered very crisp, awesome analysis on culture, on politics. and she did it with a twinkle in her eye. she always had good humor and i think she was the epitome of what reagan used to call a happy warrior and great example of young conservative making a huge impact at a very young age. pete: so sad. she was on the weekend program a good deal. i agree with everything you just said, rachel. a sudden illness. a lot of people shocked by. this a reminder of our mortality. 26 years old. if you wanting to support brey and what she believes in her parents have set up a go fund me page bre payton
scholarship fun. ed: they believe she got the h1n1 flu virus. happened very quickly. read about it on social media. we want to focus on her life and legacy. somebody we got to know on this program and certainly our viewers familiar with her. we will miss her. pete: we will remember bre peyton today. rachel: absolutely. these days we're all stressed. i hear you, sister. stress can affect our minds. i call this dish, "stress." stress can also affect our bodies. so, i'm partnering with cigna to remind you that your emotional and physical health are more connected than you think.
>> immigrant immigrated here legally and lawfully to achieve his american dream. he achieved that goal. [sobbing] >> his goal was taken from him. >> if he had been deported this wouldn't have happened? >> potentially. my point is, why are we providing sanctuary for criminals? pete: good point. california authorities have captured the illegal immigrant suspected of killing a police officer during a traffic stop. the man in custody may have ties to the violent seranos gang accused of murders and smuggling across the country. here to discuss is gang unit analyst and live pd presents pd cam on a&e sean sticks larkin. thank you for being here today. >> my pleasure. pete: your biggest take away from this coal-killing in california? >> any time an officer is killed in the line of duty, it hits us in law
enforcement across the country. you know, i think there has been 47 officers killed by gunfire criminally so far this year. that's an increase over past years. it's a trend we can't see go up. we have had a total, i think, of 144 officers killed in the line of duty. any time one of them happens is just too many for us. pete: sergeant one thing to be here illegally and another thing to have duis and not be deported for it and have a known gang affiliation. how is someone like that allowed to remain in our country? is the local police force hand cuffed what they can do about that. >> varies from state to state and agency to agency. just in my own department i work for here in tulsa, oklahoma. when we have contact with individuals, we cannot, you know, we don't ask them if they are here illegally, if they have papers or anything like that. now, if they're arrested, they are taken to our tulsa county jail where that process is started by the sheriff's deputies. we even in our own police department are not able to do it.
yes, it varies from state-to-state, department to department, and it's a very frustrating situation at times. pete: absolutely it can have dangerous outcomes as we saw. here is some data of 2018 of gang affiliations across the country. we hear a lot about ms-13 because of their connection to drugs and really severe violence. this year these are apprehensions alone in 2018. ms-13, top the list. you see surenos there with 57. you say it's one of the largest nationwide gangs. >> that's correct, as far as hispanic street gangs go surenos and latin king are the largest in the u.s. that word means southerner. and started in los angeles there in southern california in the late 1960s. this is a gang that's been entrenched here in the u.s. for over, what 50 years now, 51 years or so. and, you know, they are in 35 to 40 states. they have a large presence, particularly in california, nevada, here in oklahoma, texas, things like that.
speaking from my own experience, the vast majority of the hispanic criminal street gangs that we deal with have some sort of ties directly toyota surenos themselves. heavily involved in drug trafficking. firearms. here involved in the homicide of an officer, they have entrenched presence in the u.s. pete: because oklahoma is not a sanctuary state. if one of these folks is arrested, charged with something, then they are referred to ice potentially for deportation. but in california that process starts because there is no cooperation; am i right on that. >> that's right. here in oklahoma, it doesn't matter, illegal stopped and arrested for dui, once they get to the sheriff's department, they will have a hold put on them to be, you know, removed from the country. pete: is it insane to you that local cops are not able to work with the feds especially for violent gang members? >> yes. i mean, that's something that, you know, when we are
talking criminal street gangs, these guys, essentially they prey on society. domestic terrorists. whatever word you want to use. and when we can't share that type of information with, you know, our law enforcement partners, particularly our federal eggs to get these guys out of here, it is a tremendous problem. pete: sergeant sean larkin, you know what you are talking about. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. pete: and thank you for your service. do you remember when democrats embraced the southern border security strategy, and a fence? we do. >> authorize some badly needed funding for better fences and better security along our borders. >> illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the u.s. legally. pete: oh, the good old days. why have they changed their position? we will get into that coming up next. plus, the planes aren't the only thing moving at this airport. one worker now going viral for the moves he is putting on on the runway. our own ed henry might try

for you. mark zuckerberg says fixing facebook is, quote, more than a one year challenge. in a post zuckerberg insists the company has made progress on fighting fake news, election interference and protecting user data. this coming on the same day that the "new york times" released a report about the social media giant's, quote: secret rule book for political speech which leads its to our second story. the renkd franklin graham is calling out that facebook rule book. he claims they banned him for 24 hours over a post from two years ago supporting north carolina controversial bathroom bill. the post apparently violated their, quote: community standards on hate speech. i have a lot of thoughts on that and so do a lot of conservatives. ed: it wasn't that long ago that democrats faced a border fencing strategy. call it fencing not a wall. on a few occasions they actually voted for it. >> i voted numerous times when i was a senator to spend money to build a
barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrant from coming in. >> authorize badly needed funding for better fences and better security along our borders. >> people who enter the united states without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the u.s. legally. rachel: that's interesting. why have democrats changed their tune? here to tell us more g.o.p. strategist and former deputy assistant for public affairs at the department of homeland security lauren claffy. >> good morning. rachel: what has changed. >> it feels like decades ago when members were making those comments. in reality not only has the demographics of the democratic party changed to be more diverse but also the way in which we talk about border security has changed. and it's gone from a common sense everybody should
support it national security issue to something that is racially and socially divisive and it is an emotional issue that people are having trouble dealing with. ed: you make a good point pressure from the left from some of these democrats shifting their positions and also they don't like president trump. >> yeah. ed: good idea 10 years ago maybe not a good idea now. quickly run through the list. some of the current democrats still in the senate and they supported what was called the secure fence act in 2006. you see schumer the leader, dianne feinstein, ron biden, debbie stabenow and sherrod brown in ohio who is thinking about running in 2020 for president. i get the flip flopping but democrats would say in their defense well, they voted for a fence or a wall whatever you want to call it next change for something, a daca that fix. why are republicans not giving democrats something in exchange for this $5 billion in fence money or wall money? >> that's my question because every time the democrats have supported something in the past, they
have gotten some sort of amnesty or pathway to citizenship in return. right? or increases to legal immigration. you remember the gang of 8 bill. although it didn't pass, one of the major negotiating points was that there was a lot of crin he ised work visas both temporary and permanent. it was something they could hang their hat on and go back to constituents and say, listen, we supported some funding for border security but here's what i got. they were able to go home and tout something. right? rachel: lauren, even last year loui luis gutierrez set i will make this deal for our daca. in fact he said i will build the wall myself i will go down with brick by brick because he wanted that deal. you're right, ed, you were not hearing the republicans lay out daca for wall. but, also, nancy pelosi is in hawaii and not wanting to negotiate on this either. they are not trying to help the daca kids. >> she doesn't want to negotiate right now. she is taking control of the house in a couple of days.
and she is going to wait until after january 3rd. she will come back in and the deal becomes void at that point. right? they have to renegotiate the house bill and we are starting from scratch at that point because it's a new congress. for her it's like what's the point in the democrats aren't incentivized to negotiate on daca in their mind it's working its way through the court system it may resolve itself anyways without them having to give anything. it's not, you know, it's a trickier situation and we have got to find something to. ed: used to work for kirstjen nielsen at the department of security. interesting, rachel how many democrats voted for it when president trump wasn't in office. now that he is in office don't like it so much. michael moore revealing his new year's wish. >> what are you most looking forward to in 2019. >> as many members of the trump family in orange jump suits as possible. ed: that's nights. that's not all the left is talking about. they are ramping up
impeachment talks. how another wish could wensd a president pelosi? is that what howard dean is advocating? you will not believe this one. rachel: a police officer attacked in a new york subway. are the city's liberal policies to blame for lawless behavior like this? we will discuss that coming up. ed: today, one town is attempting to make the biggest s'more in the world. we will compete in our own way. "fox & friends" does s'mores, next. ♪ sugar ♪ honey, honey ♪ you are my candy, girl ♪
mr. speaker, to call for the impeachment of the president of the united states of america. >> impeachable offenses because even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraud lengthily obtaining the office. >> please don't see impeachment anymore. and when they say that i say impeachment, impeachment, impeachment. [laughter] ed: that was in september when she kept saying impeachment. we were told during the election season and then in the post election, no, no, no. democrats we are going to focus on legislation. we want to talk about the economy. healthcare, that's what they won on. they are not going to be --
there will be some investigations but won't be the focus. a couple nights ago i was filling in for martha maccallum and i had ed rendell on you are totally wrong the party is not moving to the left. he had a op-ed smartly written ed rendell saying let's legislate and not investigate. he sworn that's what the democrats are going to do. hear about what howard dean and others are saying. i don't believe it. rachel: here is howard dean by the i think that is actually possible trump has to be removed which is not far-fetched. then pence has to go. case nasa not been made. if that happens, however, we will welcome president pelosi. ed: speaker next in line for the president. boom, boom, boom. pete: part of a conversation on twitter he was having with somebody. he was responding for that the case hasn't been made for impeaching pence. there is no case for the president either it reveals it bubbles right below the surface. they're hiding it and masking it with policy and talk new agenda and things they want to do.
they know nothing they pass will -- very little of it will get signed. they can do it without fear of implementation but right underneath it, if something goes wrong you just wait. ed: sometimes it's not right underneath sometimes it's right up front. rachel: sometimes i wondered if some of the volatility in the market have been a little bit of that feeling that we kind of all know that they said as you said, ed, during the election season, no, no, no, we are not trying to do that tried to shut up maxine waters. in the end this is what they have been always been after since day one. ed: become blood sport not just about impeachment or we have grounds to investigate. let's go after the president. let's go after his kids. let's put them in jail. some democrats are not satisfied with just going even through a process. it's this is a blood sport. listen to michael moore. >> what are you most looking forward to in 2019. >> as many members of the trump family in orange jump suits as possible. [laughter]
>> that's mean-spirited. >> wrong way to end such a if he has been time of the year with such animosity. those who would do wrong to this country. pete: at least i give him credit for saying that's pretty mean-spirited the laughing going on over. this let's just throw a bunch of people in jail. we don't really know why. but let u.s. just take out u.s.t take out the man's family. pete: it is completely lazy and gone. they haven't looked at any of the evidence that's been presented or attempted to be presented over the last two years there was any sort of russian collusion. if you look at it you would be walking back from those statements, not doubling down on them. rachel: pathetic but also hypocritical. there is double standard the children of other -- of democrat politicians are rarely spoken about in that way. so there is definitely. pete: what do you think,

ed: this viral video christmas eve is pretty outrageous. it shows a new york city police officer defending himself against five homeless men in the subway. the officer has been praised for his restraint actually. he used only his baton to fend off the five attackers despite being on his own. what led to the officer is a lead alli being put in this position in the first place?
here blue lives matter new york city councilman joe borelli. good to see you. >> good morning. ed: talk from the political aspect and think of the city council and other officials here. what policies do you think have led to the ability of folks to just being going after police officers? >> in this case you are seeing the culmination of two bad policies the blaze plymouthed. we don't fare beaters and allow people to occupy subway platforms and harass people. the second is we no longer comply with federal officials. one of the people arrested in this incident had two ice detainers and had been arrested previous times for forcible touching. real crimes. and the new york city government didn't comply with detainers. >> i grew up arranged this city and i remember a time when rudy giuliani was the mayor he had the broken window philosophy you go after the small crimes that joe was talking band dry to snuff out some of the bigger
crimes. as somebody who defends law enforcement, what are police officers up against now when mayor bill de blasio as i understand he is not going after small marijuana offenses in the city. not going after fare jumpers as joe just said. that leaves the police officers as lame ducks sometimes. >> this officer was presented with a terrible situation it could have been a lot worse. use quote too much too much force on the front paper and villainized had his butt handed to him or in the hospital or killed he would be a hero. he made all of us proud training kicked in did it to a t. two things it's stopping the small crimes go. out there, affect them. get these people out of the subway system so these potential situations won't be going on. have law enforcement work with ice agents like the councilman said have guys who have these detainers who shouldn't be here in the first place. you saw the officer killed right after christmas night who was illegal immigrant. if these individuals aren't here in the first place they can't hurt anybody. we need to put the politics
aside. here you have nancy pelosi over in hawaii, you know, with a smile on her face. obviously she doesn't care. her family isn't under attack but my blue family is we need to do something and fix it now. ed: you mentioned officer singh. we will talk about him more through the program he is not alone sadly. officers killed in the line of duty in 2018 it was up sharply from 2017. 47 officers killed in the line of duty so far in 2018. shot and killed. joe, how do you do something to stop this? >> look, we see a nationwide war on police. value of officers not taken as seriously as it once once. we see the rise of democratic politicians running new york city and cities around the country. seattle we have $1 billion a year spent on how manyless services the result is more homelessness and crime. hempstead a crown overrun by ms-13 gang bangers the solution was to have a gun buy bank of toy guns.
politicians have their head in the sand when it comes to dealing with real problems and crimes in the community. ed: what's your message as we head into the new year? >> we need to respect one another, of course. officers need to do their job every single day especially here. you see officers killed in the line of duty. there is a constant war on cops. and if officers are allowed to do their job and go back to the broken windows policy small stuff lead to the big stuff stopping i think a lot of officers would be safer. ed: the left is still on a mission to take down confederate statues all around america. one minority lawmaker is here say not so fast. his bill to protect some of those statues that's next. and a transgender inmate now being transferred from a male prison to a female prison after a federal court found their rights were violated. but, is this a slippery slope? we'll debate it fair and balanced next hour. ♪ chevy also won a j.d. power dependability award
rachel: after protests and defacement of federal statues on federal campuses an african-american lawmaker in florida has filed a bill that would bar the removal of confederate monuments in the sunshine state. pete: joining us now to discuss is florida state representative mike hill. thank you for being here this morning. viewers may be asking. >> good morning.
pete: why introduce that bill. >> first of all the bill goes much beyond just protecting confederate monuments. the title of the bill is soldiers and heroes memorials protection act it goes well beyond confederate monuments. any soldier or hero who has fought in any sort of conflict or battle in the u.s. starting back with the anglo spanish war and including the battle of fort mow say where if there were spanish, native american and african-americans who fought against the british and defeated them. it was the first military laws for the british on american soil. so, it goes all the way through the revolutionary war. of course, the civil war vietnam and current wars. it protects first responders and astronauts. so it goes beyond just confederate monuments. rachel: right. what's been the reaction by
the african-american community to your bill? >> i have only got an small reaction. from those who send me facebook or email messages. it hasn't been positive. but i will say this. those here in pensacola who i speak to firsthand, they are? support of it. this is simply a small battle in the entire war for the soul of this nation. on one side we have the left that for some reason wants to divide and destroy this nation on the other side constitutional conservatives who believe in championing the rights of the individual. free speech, freedom of religion equal protection under the law constitution that limits the government by the consent of the governed. that is the battle going on now for the soul of this nation. pete: amen, mike. it's great the bill covers a lot of monuments. you know where the focus is going to be on the left.
they will say mike hill wants to put up a statue honoring slave owners. what do you say to that? >> i say that's nonsense. first of all, this whole idea that we need to tear down these monuments because they are offensive is nothing more than just fake fained outrage it only started probably escalated two or three years ago. copycat movement i'm offended by these monuments that's been there for decades u some for over 100 years and including right here in pensacola we have our bay view cross which was erecerected in 1941 for the soldiers fighting in world war ii. we also have a confederate monuments here. those have been there for decades over 100 years. and now all of a sudden therein is this outrage that you are offended by it i don't think so.
i don't buy it. rachel: you say it doesn't change anybody's life. how do you explain that? to tear it down. >> if you tear down a monument. that does not all of a sudden make you have a better job or a better education. instead, all it does is divide and destroy. pete: well said. thank you for your time this morning. appreciate it. >> thank you. rachel: media now attacking supreme court justice clarence thomas' wife jenny all because she asked where is the wall? what about when the media off anoff andfawns over ruth bar binsburg. is there a double standard? you'll find i go to my happy place. see if we let tensions run the show up here, then our bodies won't perform at their best out here. wait, aren't we going to the sound check? priorities. so i'm partnering with cigna, to remind you that how you're doing emotionally affects you physically.
pete: illegal immigrant accused cop killer now in custody and california sheriff's outrage grows over the state's sanctuary policies. >> we can't ignore the fact that this could have been preventable. >> it hits us in law enforcement across the country. it's a very frustrating situation. ed: the president has made front and center tweets over the border wall. we will be forced to close the southern border entirely. >> doing a story nancy pelosi is spending the vacation vacation tion in hawaii. >> if i was in hawaii i would be getting killed. they never wanted to do a deal. rachel: beefing up security for new year's eve celebration wherer there

[laughter] ed: he probably wants to give me another used waffle maker. is that christmas gift? pete: my resolution last year was to tweet more. i definitely accomplished that. first resolution i have kept in a long time.
ed: tweeting at don lemon? pete: nope. thanks, ed. let us know your resolutions. we want to take some amusing ones and share them with the country. rachel: absolutely. pete: where it is quiet this morning on capitol hill as the shutdown showdown continues. president trump now threatening to close the southern border if democrats do not fund the wall. ed: president canceling new year's plans so he could stay in washington. remember, he already stayed back for christmas as nancy pelosi is spotted vacationing at a fancy resort out there in hawaii. rachel: that's right. jillian turner joins us live in washington with more on the looming shutdown, jillian? >> good morning, guys. there is no indication here in washington this weekend so far that the shutdown will end before 2019. congress is out of town for the most part. president trump remains here tweeting. he is threatening a border shutdown in the middle of the shutdown. saying well be forced to close the southern border
entirely if the obstructionist democrats do not give us the money to finish the wall and also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our country is saddled with. hard to believe there is a congress and president who would approve. he is also threatening once again to slash aid to honduras, el salvador and guatemala. he says their governments are failing to stop their citizens from traveling to the u.s. illegally. republicans and democrats remains several billion dollars apart on border security funding. and disagree on what exactly constitutes a wall house dems are calling expensive ineffective and immoral while republicans are trying to hold nancy pelosi's feet to the fire. lindsey graham tweeting yesterday to nancy pelosi and house democrats no wall money, no deal. he believes she is refusing to negotiate on wall funding to appeal to liberal colleagues in the house in order to ensure her support for her candidacy back to
you. ed: gillian turner in washington. trying to push that message. chuck schumer the senate democratic leader has been willing to deal with us. nochings is a problem she wants to make sure she takes care of her left. she is likely to be speaker of the house. rachel: she still has to get those votes. ed: still has to take a tough line with the president. she wants to be able to claim victory by making her first action as the new speaker if he she gets it to reopen the government and say it was me. it was not the president. pete: conventional wisdom types send out news letters to tell us to be smart about certain things they would say republicans should make a deal now. control the house get a better deal. once they get nancy an they wilt get any deal. devolve down to what the democrats want no money for the wall. from the beginning president trump has never listened to conventional wisdom in 2016. said he couldn't win. couldn't be a candidate. couldn't get passed. i think washington thinks this is going to hurt trump. trump digging his heels in
on his signature issue. other hicious in the news get to in a second. bring about the human as specht of why this is so important. very much could be and should be a winner for him. rachel: you make a really interesting point. the way shutdowns work is they end when one side gets the blame, right? i think up until in my opinion very recently the democrats were certain and maybe even the republicans that the republicans were going to get the blame because usually they do. however, i think the october of nancy pelosi being in hawaii. the president staying in washington, d.c. where he is, you know, waiting to do negotiations, can sing his new year's eve plans and plans to get this government back open in addition to the very tragic news of an illegal immigrant killing a police officer legal immigrant. in the home state of
california. i think something might be shifting right under our feet right now. pete: you might be right. we are not hearing from nancy pelosi and dianne feinstein. we are not hearing, ed, you know, speaking of twitter. ed took to twitter and pointed something out. ed: ted lieu was tweeting up about the wall and attacks the president. congressman, doing a story on reaction from lawmakers in california, he is from california, to the killing of police officer ron singh have you sent any tweets or full statements on police officer killed in your home state? guess what it's 24 hours later. i have not heard from congressman lou. dianne feinstein sent out at least two tweets that i saw saying that there should be congressional hearings into the boy who tragically died in u.s. custody this week the migrant boy. go through the facts no child in u.s. custody should die. we should do everything we can and it appears that the doctors tried. you want to hold a congressional hearing on that and find out what went wrong and what we can do better let's do it. why ♪ a single major california
democrat whether it's dianne feinstein ted lieu, nancy pelosi by the way i checked her twitter feed, tweet about climate change, this and that. all big issues, why are you not talking about a police officer murdered in cold blood on christmas night leaving behind widow and 5-month-old boy killed in your home state? is it because he was killed by illegal immigrant and it doesn't fit your narrative. if ted lieu does not just want to respond on twitter but come here tomorrow and talk about it you are welcome. rachel: or nancy or other of the democrat congressman who seem to not have much interest in what happened and the circumstances and the policies that led to this unnecessary tragic death. ed: why would they speak? what they going to say. cop killer entered across the arizona border had two previous dui arrests. we are learning of this because this happened yesterday. because california is sanctuary state. ice was never notified. he was never deported.
is he a known gang member of one the largest and most violent mexican street gangs in america today. ed: mother and co-worker were also arrested because they were trying to cover it up and keep him in hiding. i think all tolled there were several people who were arrested because they were lying to law enforcement about this man's whereabouts. you are right he is an illegal immigrant. the sheriff has very direct in saying look, the sheriff said i don't want to make this political but it's california's sanctuary state status that led to this officer being killed. here's what he said. i am pleased and very proud that the suspect is in custody. teams from the kearns county sheriff's office and other agencies helped us relentlessly pursue this suspect in pursuit of justice. >> he's not coming back but
a lot of law enforcement people that i don't know worked days and nights to make this happen. i would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart to make this happen. i was eight waiting for this to happen. i would like to thank you working day and night to make this happen. rachel: they had to hold him up he was so emotional and in pain. as painful as it is to watch is the result of sanctuary city policies that prevent law enforcement from taking people who have committed crimes and turning them over to ice who can actually remove them from the country. pete: corporal singh patriot who came here to this country because they love this country. they fought to learn english. pete: pursuing the american dream doing it in a uniform and beautiful wife and young
baby. 5-month-old son. taken hours before he was murdered in cold blood on christmas night. unbelievable. pete: that's why ted lieu does not want to tweet. rachel: lowering the flag half-staff is not enough to deal with what happened here. a police officer shot in the face has died. officer michael smith passed away at atlanta hospital after fighting for his life for three weeks. the 33-year-old was responding to a disturbance at a dentist office during a fiscal struggle his gun fired one bullet striking him and killing the suspect. it's unclear who shot the gun. the 7 year department veteran leaves behind a wife and 3-year-old son. the pentagon is backing president trump's order to pull 2,000 troops from syria. in a tweet, the department of defense calling the next phase in syria a deliberate well thought out mutually supportive and well controlled withdraw. this comes as u.s. backed syrian kurds are reportedly

the wife of a supreme court justice wants to speak her mind on facebook or anywhere else and shoe is a bad person. rachel: more appropriate for ginni thomas to be talking about politics than the justifiable ruth bader ginsburg who is supposed to be impartial. ed: that's what they said during the kavanaugh hearings. pete: i have nothing to add because they nailed it. i know ginni thomas, nice woman. passionate. ed: don't like her politics, challenge her on the issues. don't go after her pearl necklace. rachel: or go after every conservative woman. pete: astronaut food and stockpiling ammo stereo time. they think of you and me because i like ammo, too. ed: oh boy, always got to take it one step further. pete: arrest of illegal immigrant accused of killing a california officer. mendosa also killed by illegal immigrant. she is here to share the cost of illegal immigration coming up.

rachel: illegal immigrants now accused of murdering a california police officer. for our next guest, this story hits close to home. pete: her son police sergeant brandon mendosa, that man right, there was also killed by illegal immigrant. joining us now angel mom mary ann mendosa. thank you for joining us this morning and thank you for strength and currently and sacrifice of you and your family. we think of you every day but especially on a day like this. first of all, tell us 'your son-in-law why he served and what happened. >> brandon knew early on he wanted to be a police officer and he wanted to serve his community. and on may 12th, 2014, he was on his way home from work and a three-time illegal drunk criminal high on meth had driven 35 miles wrong way on four different freeways in phoenix before slamming head on to my son. pete: my goodness. this is still ferrari fresh this latest murder of this
police officer saying. tell us what this police officer is going through right now. >> my heart is just ripping apart in my chest knowing. every death is tragic and every funeral that a family has to plan for a family member is tragic. but when it's a law enforcement officer, it's almost like the planning is taken away from you because the law enforcement family takes over. and it's very overwhelming and it's very touching but it's -- i mean, there are so many words that are just coming to my mind but i just wants the family to know that my heart goes out to them and angel families are praying for them. we know exactly, you know, the struggle that they are dealing with today. pete: mary ann as this unholds we hear politicians talking about we don't want a wall, abolish ice, maintaining sanctuary cities. this guy who killed corporal
singh had multiple duis and never referred to ice. what are your feelings about the policies that seem to emphasize i will illegals over citizens. >> the acceptable amount of crime in our country committed against american citizens by is zero. it's a nonissue. the amount of crime that we should accept is zero. and this is just another death and it's added to the toll of tens of thousands of americans that have been killed by illegal criminal aliens in our country. i look at nancy pelosi and chuck schumer that they are actually committing treasonous acts against the american people when they're placing illegal aliens and their rights and their protection ahead of their fellow american citizens who have actually voted them into office and who are paying their salaries in d.c. and every politician in washington, d.c. should be listening very closely to the american people right now because we have woken up and we are tired of the lies that come out of their
mouth. nancy has the gull to stand in front of camera and say criminals don't come over the border. they don't bring diseases. they don't bring crime. does she really think we are that idiotic that we haven't figured this out by now? so these politicians need to start worrying about where they are and they need to stop concentrating on investigating our president for crimes he has committed because maybe the american people are going to start bringing suits against them for the crimes they are committing against americans by not protecting us and that's the oath they took. rachel: mary ann what can me, pete, our viewers, and we as viewers can do to show solidarity with the family as they mourn? we feel so helpless. >> yeah. you know, angel families.com, it's a group that michelle root and i formed to bring angel families together. people who have been affected by illegal alien crime because we know the pain and we know the heartache. and i want the family to know we are there to them if they need to reach out to us. but, it's just -- it needs
to be, you know, positive things on social media, and let the family know that, you know, we back them up 100 percent. pete: well said. mary ann mendoza, thank you for joining us this morning. more "fox & friends" on the other side. deserves the hard work that went into the science behind vascepa. prescription vascepa. vascepa, along with diet and exercise, has proven results in multiple clinical trials. vascepa looks different because it is different. over a decade of extensive research and development achieved proven results. that's the prescription power of vascepa. vascepa is not right for everyone. do not take vascepa if you are allergic to icosapent ethyl or any inactive ingredient in vascepa. tell your doctor if you are allergic to fish, have liver problems or other medical conditions and about any medications you take,

facility. a federal court ruled in favor of dion strawberry hampton who is serving a 10 year sentence for burglary in illinois. could this case set a precedent all around the country? joining us now to discuss is the president of the correction officer's benevolent association allies and former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney venu vargas. good to see you. >> good to see you, sir. ed: tell me why you believe this is a threat for you. >> well, i think that it's important that everybody watching understand that you cannot marginalize safety. you can't marginalize safety. and it appears that everybody that has anything that's talking about jail reform and prison reform wants to take safety and put safety on the backseat and put everything else upfront. we have to be realistic that inside jail we have crimes. there are sexual assault and things that go on inside jails.
so we can't just. ed: i get that please tell me specifically then in this case understand it strawberry hampton is going a man to a woman. why is that a threat to corrections officer. >> for example on required in new york city jails we already house transgender inmates already housed in the female jail. the safety issue becomes we have to protect, again, we have to protect the other inmates because against sexual assault and things happening. this personal is in jail for committing a crime. not for being a transgender. unfortunately, what's going on now in this country is that everybody is dealing with this jail reform and nobody wants to talk about safety, the safety of the inmates. ed: okay. >> the safety of the corrections officers who are also sexually assaulted by inmates it is a safety issue we can't marginalize. ed: let's give him a chance to respond. >> i think the first thing here this case actually was
about safety. this woman, who is transgender, was treated horrifically within prison, subjected to all sorts of abuse by other prisoners and by correction staff. and these claims were found to be substantiated by independent reviews. i mean, horrible, horrible things that were going on. and she had been transferred a couple times to different male prisoners. ultimately the decision came down and the judge didn't order the prisoner moved but actually wanted her to get some counseling while she was in segregation. the speed at which they moved her you think this was the bill clinton administration and the secret way they did it was don't ask, don't tell. because it was done in secret in response even though the judge didn't order the transfer. illinois has a terrible history. you have to look at what illinois has done and the corrections chief is talking about safety. but, the actual evidence hearing the judge conducted there was no evidence presented putting a transgender woman into a
woman's prison would pose any greater threat to the women in the facility. ed: elias answer that. you claim this is a safety issue at the top and now you are hearing from vinoo from some of the details in the case this person who was a man becoming a woman was being sexually abused more by men and was actually than other inmates, perhaps, number one. and number two was actually being assaulted, abused by corrections officers. i will give you a chance to respond. >> i can't respond to what's going on in illinois. i can tell you what's going on here in new york city. and that's not an issue. correction officers are not being accused of these type of things like i said before. we already have these inmates in with the female -- with the other female inmates and it is -- i don't mean to be repetitive it is an issue of safety because we have to keep the other inmates safe. the one quick thing is, this listen. what's going on now in the jail system and the prison system, correction officers, we're like the super hero of law enforcement all of the
sudden because rikers island had 40% inmates mentally ill. they are doing mental health work. juveniles who are now -- we are now doing counseling juvenile counseling. ed: you are dealing with a lot i got it. vinoo you make the last point. what does this mean for prisons across the country? >> look, i'm sorry, go ahead. >> the issue is actually going to come up before the u.s. supreme court of what rights do transgenders have in the military. being heard in d.c. and being heard in the ninth circuit in california. it looks like it's going to go to the supreme court. the trump administration has asked it to go to the supreme court. but, in this case the illinois department of corrections didn't make the argument to compare this woman to other transgenders but because it was a sex discrimination case that's why the illinois department of corrections lost. in terms of precedent, ultimately i think this will be before the u.s. supreme court. ed: it will go to the high court. vinoo and allies thank you for coming in. >> thank you.
ed: remember when schumer wanted a border fence that was before president trump was in office. >> people who enter the united states without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as those who enter the u.s. legally. ed: not that long ago schumer was for the wall. dan bongino wants to call out the hypocrisy coming up. what would happen if you showed up to work with wine? that's what lebron did. the move that has everybody talking this morning. king james. ♪ there's a party at the bar ♪ everybody put your glasses up ♪ and drink to that ♪ not long ago, ronda started here. and then, more jobs began to appear. what started with one job spread all around. because each job in energy creates many more in this town. not in this house.

>> we need to have a dialogue. we need to have a conversation and i hope that the death of officer singh who was needlessly and tragically gunned down that his death is not in vain. hopefully this will have a positive message and we can sit down and talk about some of these policies that restrict law enforcement's ability, our ability to effectively protect our communities. pete: yeah, that was the sheriff in the county in which corporal singh was killed by illegal immigrant. a story we are covering on the show all morning long.
here to react let's bring in dan bongino former secret service agent and nypd officer and host of the podcast and author of by gate the attempted sabotage of donald j. trump. dan, thanks for being here this morning as a law enforcement officer yourself. i know you are passionate about this. break down what happened and what it means. >> pete, you can't watch that press conference with corporal singh's brother fought through tears to thank the law enforcement officers for everything they did. and not lose it yourself and not melt. it was one of the most painful things i have seen in a long time. i watched it on twitter over and over because corporal singh, a legal immigrants to this country was everything, everything that's right about this country. did you see the pictures of corporal singh and his beautiful family the day before christmas. how could you not think to yourself taken by this alleged shooter here who is in the country illegally, i
might add. right? every christmas, every year his family from this point on is going to have an empty seat at their table. and they are going to be reminded during what's supposed to be the most joy outside time of the season about the most tragic moment in their life. look at that picture. can i see it on my monitor now. i want everybody to look at that that is an american hero and a patriot right there. that guy is gone. he is never going to take another breath of oxygen because someone and granted, i stipulate the argument, a lot of people come here illegally do not go on to commit other crimes although they broke the law getting here. i'm sorry to go on about this but this is important. this is indisputable fact. look at that picture. not one person in this country illegally who decided to forego the legal process and break the law should have been here. this hero should be alive right now. he should be alive and we lost limb. we cannot defend our borders because our politicians in
d.c. aren't doing a damn thing about it. you speak a lot of common sense. it used to be on this issue a little bit, rachel. rachel: right, absolutely. we saw yesterday the mayor in oakland says she has no regrets about having alerted illegal aliens 'ice coming and the raid. she has no regrets about it i thought about what she said. those of us who have common sense, it seems ludicrous that we would allow a policy where the law enforcement cannot talk to ice and get people who are criminals out of our country. i have to say, she is probably reflecting the values of her community. do you think that this tragic incident might change minds in california? >> you know, rachel, on a saturday morning.
it's a weekend, you know, it's a holiday season, i would love to tell you some great news and say oh, yeah. it's going to wake up a lot of these open borders advocates to the dangers of unfettered border. i can't do that i think there is a wing of the democrat party. not all but a wisconsin the democratic party absolutely committed to open borders and basically the destruction of the republic as we know it again, i'm not talking about all democrats. i'm not making a global statement. i don't think that's a mystery anymore. they don't care. you know, that steven miller interview on another network was so telling. when he pinned down the host and said to him tell steven miller from the white house of course an advocate for strong borders tell me one thing the democrats have done to defend our borders and get a semblance of immigration policy they can't name one thing. they are against kate's law.
they're guns against defunding sanctuaries cities. the wheel is old technology. and do you know why we use it? because it works. ed: there was a time not too long ago, actually, when democrats were for the wall. called it a fence watch. >> the first of these seven principles is illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple. when we use phrases like undocumented workers, we convey a message to the american people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration which the american people overwhelming oppose. i think it is illegal and wrong. people who enter the united states without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the u.s. legally. ed: multiple time he voted for fencing, walling.
democrats say they got a daca fix in exchange it wasn't just the wall in and of itself. dan, i remember john kerry being for the war in iraq before he was against it sounds like schumer was for the wall before he was against it. >> ed, there's a reason that the democrats have had this evolution and i'm using the air quote into open borders advocates. that's what they're. let's not mistake this for anything else. they have lost in droves working class voters. they have in the united states. what they need to do sen act an open borders policy in conjunction with nearly limitless social state. way to buy off voters. only way democrats can possibly, possibly maintain their status as one of the major parties in the united states. because their agenda, as it's gone radical dickly far left does not appeal to works class americans anymore u that's what they think they can do. ed: i hear but the flip flop on the wall. how can you say democrats are losing working class
voters when they just won control of the house? >> because, ed, they lost pennsylvania. they lost michigan. they lost wisconsin for the first time. ed: in 2016 they lost those states but in 2018, didn't they make some gains? they made gains in suburban districts. when you look at rural areas, agricultural areas, look at states pennsylvania fools gold for republicans forever we final solid a candidate in the white house puts his finger on the pulse it frightens the democrats. they have seen this hemorrhaging of working class voters. they have seen -- they have become the party of the elites now, not the republicans, and they are genuinely worried. they want to combine a big benefit state with open borders and they think they can replenish the ranks of their voters for power. it's a simply a by them. it's not complicated. why else would they do it? ed, what else explains their revolution? you have the tape yourself. hillary clinton and all of them. pete: is it compassion and political correctness or
insanity? no, i think it's voters. rachel: i think it's a combination of all those things. i think some of them. pete: self-loathing. rachel: probably a combination. i think you make a good point, dan. >> i don't buy the compassion argument one bit i will tell you why. they were offered a couple times in exchange where you allow people to stay in the country a form of amnesty, they could not vote for a certain period of time. do you know what the democrats said, no thanks. because they don't care about compassion and staying in the country. they stay about votes. pete: america like an evil outdated place. dan bongino, thank you for your time. rachel: we will turn now to your headlines. a utility company may be facing murder and manslaughter charges over its possible role in california's deadliest and most destructive wildfire. pacific gas role in november's camp wildfire allegedly started by a downed power line prosecutors are investigating whether reckless power line

folks from planet fitness coming up. rachel: that's right. he had he'd lot happening. pete: a lot going on in the program. a lot going on around the world and in this country and in california. a fox news alert. the illegal immigrant accused cop killer now in custody along with seven others, including others who tried to help facilitate the escape and california sheriff's outrage grows over the state's sanctuary policies after murder of a police officer that he says could have been prevented. we now know that the cop killer was 32 years old. came from mexico. entered the u.s. illegally across the arizona border. had two previous dui arrests in this country. but never deported because california is a sanctuary state. so ice was never notified. he is also, that man right there, whose name we will not say. is a known member of a violent mexican street gang surenos as well. gang member with two previous duies, never
deported 1:00 a.m. suspected drunk. shoots a cop, tries to flee. the long arm of the law finds him along with seven other people. is he trying to go to mexico and get out of this country. ed: so he could come back illegally again. rachel: lots of aliases one way they get away. here is the county sheriff adam christianson he is blasting the sanctuary city's policies in california saying that this death was preventible. >> while we absolutely need to stay focused on officer singh's service and sacrifice, we can't ignore the fact that this could have been preventable. and under sb 54 in california, based on two arrests for dui and some other active warrants that this criminal has out there, law enforcement would have been prevented, prohibited from sharing any information with ice about this criminal gang member.
ladies and gentlemen, this is not how you protect a community. ed: sheriff christianson went on to say point blank officer singh would be alive today but for the sanctuary law. i think what's important to underline is we talk about this weekend after weekend about the sanctuary city policies. and the president tweets about it. the democrats say it's just the president politicizing illegal imgreat lakes he is attacks he is a racist. all these things they throw to audited all the time. it's a bunch of bunk. you have a sheriff trying to defend our community. saying this officer would be alive today but for these sanctuary policies. this is the real impact in communities around the country. there's the impact right there. one family, but it could be any family in america. there is an officer who is a legal immigrant with a widow now and a 5-month-old son left behind. rachel: hardly an isolated incident. we just had on our program mary ann men dos doze is a who also died at the hand of
illegal immigrant criminal background could have been turned over to ice and deported but was not. pete: yesterday we had a chance to hear from the fallen officer's brother reggie singh. it was tough and powerful. reminds you of the human impact of policies. listen to reggie singh. >> he is not coming back. but,. [sobbing] there is a lot of people out there that misses him. and a lot of law enforcement people that i don't know worked days and nights to make this happen. i would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart make this happen? i wish i could thank all the law enforcement agencies, homeland security in san francisco, everyone. i would like to thank you working day and night to make this happen.
pete: two grateful immigrants who came here the right way. we love it everything they have done contrast that with the ungrateful. ed: just seeking out the american dream. the sirng family was seeking the american dream. the american dream was stolen from them. it was ripped out. think about that widow and that 5-month-old son. i don't want to keep repeating. rachel: i'm glad you are, ed. it is a real human consequence. again, a legal immigrant. he came here legally. not only that he came here and volunteered on the force because he so wanted to be a law enforcement officer. he eventualleventually becoming. english is the opportunity in our country. he took english classes so he could do his job even better of protecting us u. pete: some elites don't understand why 32% of hispanics voted for republicans in 2016. why the president has strong approval rating amongst hispanics. your family came here legally.
rachel: absolutely. pete: if we did it the right way other people should, too. the left talks so much about fairness. how unfair for everyone who is trying and this is how legal immigrants feel about the illegal immigration in our country. they don't like it. they don't like it more than all of us native borns because they know it's fundamentally unfair. by the way, we are robbing people of a beautiful citizenship process. that helps people assimilate and love our country the way the singh family does. pete: that's a great point. rachel: this is a horrible preventible tragedy. and the sheriff couldn't have put it in better terms. pete: think about it. sanctuary means local cops can't tell the feds if a gang member can't be deported. ed: this is not happening in a vacuum. it's happening in the middle of a partial government shutdown in which what is at issue at the center of it. illegal immigration and cracking down on it. who has made that the central issue? the president of the united states. democrats are now trying to say it's the trump shutdown. is he on defense. the president insisting no,
i'm going to stay on offense. he tweeted we will be closed tforced toclose the southern bor entirely if obstructionist democrats do not give u.s. the money to finish the wall and also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our country is saddle with. hard to believe there was a congress and president who would approve. rachel: people wanting to know why won't the democrats give president trump the wall. there are deals to be made. they say they want to help daca kids there are other things in the budget that they could trade-off for a wall. we asked ned ryun why he thought the democrats are refusing to give donald trump and the republican as wall during the shutdown. >> they can't give him anything for his wall. because it would infuriate their far left base who doesn't want anything dealt with whether w. our immigration system or securing our border. think think they are getting a two-for.
they are denying trump a win and making leftist base happy. i will say this. it is pretty stunning. this has all taken place over the last five years when in 2013 most every democratic senator voted $46 billion in nearly 700 miles of border wall. i think it's gotten to the pointed this is complete insanity, mark. at what point do we as a sovereign nation not have the right to say we are going to secure our borders. we have a moral responsibility to our citizens. ed: we have a moral responsibility to protect our children too. democrats talk a good game about the opioids crisis. you want to do something about that crisis? do something about the border. rachel: there are counties in wisconsin that are literally going bankrupts because the drug problem is so severe. that literally they are running outive funds to take care of all the children who are being left orphaned or fosters because of the drug crisis. the other reason that ned other reason they -- i think something is shifting.
shut downs end when one side thinks they are losing and they fold. up until about a couple days ago the democrats were pretty certain they were going to win and the republicans were going to fold. that's why nancy pelosi is in hawaii right now. i think the death of officer singh and also the optics of having her all the way in hawaii and not in washington, d.c. where the president is sitting waiting, canceling christmas plans, canceling new year's eve plans, waiting for them to negotiate on, this i don't think it's a good look. and the tide may be turning on this. pete: yes. they are left without a policy. they don't want the wall. they don't want ice. they want sanctuary cities. what do they stand for? the president says i have got a clear strategy. let's address it and i think you are right. i think the narrative will shift. it shouldn't be about narratives it should been right and wrong. ed: tell us when the shutdown will end and who will emerge? will the president get some wall funding or not email@example.com. rachel: we will turn now to your headlines with a fox
news alert. four tourists dead after a roadside bomb bomb pyramids in egypt. 11 people on board are seriously injured. including the driver. authorities say the bus was taken 15 tourists from vietnam to a show at the pyramids. no one has claimed responsibility yet for the attack. serious may have saved itself from being liquidated after getting a last minute bid to buy out the company. eddy lambford submitted a bid to his edge fund esl investments right before friday's deadline. the offer includes purchasing 425 serious stores and employing up to 50,000 people. serious' advisors have until january 4th to decide whether esl is a qualified bidder. here is a live look in times square. police are beefing up security for the famous new year's eve celebration where they're expecting nearly 2 million people. the nypd will be watching more than 1200 security

if you haven't seen her commentary, google it, find some of her clips from "fox & friends." she always had such insightful, funny, interesting things to say. not just about politics. but she understood the power of culture and always had great segments on that. we brought her on for that reason. i always say she had a twinkle in her eye whenever she delivered her analysis always had good humor. reminded me of what ronald reagan said was a happy warrior. she truly was a happy warrior. so effective. at such a young age. pete: yeah. so young, so soon. so unexpected. reminding all of us of our mortality. but this morning we are reminding "fox & friends" viewers that they can help her. you have seen her family struggling right now for sure. go to her go fund me page, go fund me at bre payton scholarship fund if you want to give back to the family and give to her legacy. ed: family put that together bre payton dead at the age of 26. ♪
ed: there's the president. he was in iraq talking to the troops. he spoke to reporters as well this week saying that he is moving forward on the wall whether democrats like it or not. pete: that's right. what are some of the plans in the works for 2019? we talk a lot about the wall? where is it what's been built? what hasn't been built. ed, you are prepared to break it down for us. rachel: i love this visual. i think this helps people. i think this is great. ed: let's explain what the president really wants. we hear all of these fights back and forth. let's actually break down where's the problem and part of the solution the president is pushing. you heard the president going back to the campaign. he has been consistent in saying build the wall. where's the problem? look at this, latest numbers from 2017. illegal crossings in 2017. san diego 26,000 illegal crossings there. tucson 38,000. el paso, 25,000. the big one though and that's rio grande valley, 137,000 illegal border crossings. why is that significant when
we lay out the problem? when you look at the current fencing, there's a decent amount in california across arizona. there are certainly gaps. that's where we see problems. new mexico look at this big hole in texas. there is only tiny pieces of fencing. and yet that's where we saw the biggest problem. rio grand valley as we mentioned 130,000 illegal crossings. guess what no fencing here almost at all. the president is basically trying and this is where we are right now. and what is he has actually completed you don't hear about this in the mainstream media. but call electio calexico on thr there has been a project where they refenced santa theresa and el paso along new mexico and texas there. the bottom line is you have new projects coming in 2019. where does the president want to spend? it's a fair question. he wants to spend billions of dollars. where is the money going to go? they have got some new fencing, wall, whatever you want to call it projects in san diego. we have mentioned that had
you 26,000 illegal crossings there in 2017. el centro, yuma and lukeville in arizona. again, arizona you still have a problem as i mentioned. but the big one the president wants to attack in 2019 is get some fencing, get a wall built in the rio grand valley. over 130,000 illegal crossings there. that's in 2017. the last numbers we have available. so presumably with no wall there now, those numbers are just as bad or worse in 2018 once this year ends and we get those numbers. i think the broader point is, the president though has already started getting some of these projects done in 2018. he probably has to get a little more aggressive about saying what they have already accomplished but in 2019, this is where he wants to spend the money. you hear this is a waste. what's it really going to do? chuck schumer and other democrats, they refer the wall before donald trump was in office. rachel: aren't these great infrastructure jobs? don't democrats wants infrastructure? it was at the top of their agenda? pete: looks shovel ready to
me. rachel: you mentioned yesterday. tell the knicks that you talked about how much we spent on shovel ready jobs. pete: $800 million in a stimulus bill in 2009 raach rach we are fighting over 5. pete: pretty conservative state. ed: looks pretty darn porous. that's where the numbers back um that's where the most illegal crossings are happening. only logical that's where you need the fence. rachel: thank you, ed, that was instructive. referenced franklin graham the late rest to say he was on facebook. pete: tunnels to towers here to tell us how they are helping this man's family ♪ some for the red, white and blue ♪ minds. i call this dish, "stress."

thing when they take it out and play with it. >> this is overreaction. i disagree 1,000%. the guns aren't dangerous. okay? people who are dangerous are using weapons whether it's a gun or not are the ones who are dangerous. i think that we need to teach our children about gun safety. we need to give them access education about these topics. if we really cared about the safety of children address issues leading causes of death for people in this country which is drowning, accidental vehicle accidents, fatalities and things like that. pete: antwon, to be fair, this town does have a high crime rate so under standably concerned about gun violence. we have had a national debate about gun violence. some people say it's training. some people say it's mental health. other people say it's confiscating guns. to take it to another level to say we need to take toy gun us, isn't that missing the point? >> well, brandon says he disagrees 1,000%. i disagree with him 2,000%. pete, as someone who is a
proud supporter of the second amendment and someone who grew up in rural south carolina where we were taught to play with guns. we also know that in 2015 there were 265 children who accidentally shot a person with a gun. we also know that there are 1.7 million households in this country they have a loaded or access to a gun with a child in the household. we also nosy that 1300 children were killed with guns in this country last year. and so, i'm all about trying to prevent a problem when a child is a child, we have to train them up as a child. as the bible says in proverbs. and so i'm all about trying to prevents these things from happening going forward from people dying from being injured. i think this is one way to do that. pete: brandon it, sounds like antwon is making the case for responsible gun ownership. if you are going to own a gun or weapon, you ought to know how to use it part of that might being able as a
free kid in america playing with a toy gun as a kid. >> look at the statistics, almost half of the households in america have guns. to make guns, you know, to have these children take their guns back or demonize gun ownership is counter productive. i think we need to do the right thing by teaming our teamg our children safety of guns. like you go to the swimming pool you teach them about safety that's going to cush the violence or deaths associated to our children. if you look at the stats, we can't conflate the stats. 1300 some children were shot. but the majority of those children are of age 13 and above. i mean, they consider that in the statistical data. we have to look at it for what it is. pete: our viewers are seeing some photos. i don't know if that's exact footage from long island or not. you know, kids could be turning in neuropath never ner .
there could be guns dangerous confrontation with police. it feels like to a lot of people we are focusing on the wrong thing as opposed to training up kids that, you know what? you have got to respect law enforcement. you shouldn't be using a weapon improperly. use it safely. shouldn't that be the focus as opposed to taking a nerf gun or toy gun away. >> pete, you can do both you can teach responsible gun ownership and proper use. you ken courage kids whether it's a friend of theirs who may have a gun who should not have a gun and needs to turn it in. you can also teach a child, show them annual example how in ohio, i think it was last year or the year before last where a child was killed because of a toy gun that looked like a real gun. you can do both. what i'm say something, i think these type programs and opportunities allow children to be taught at a very early age if you are going to go down the road of gun use, do it responsibly, do it the proper way.
but when there is an incident where it's not responsible or you are afraid of a friend or a neighbor or a colleague who has a gun that shouldn't have a gun, then can you also tell someone or you can encourage them to turn it in. i don't think anything is wrong with that any time we can have an opportunity to curb this issue of gun violence i think we are moving in the right direction. pete: tell law enforcement about a gun that someone owns as opposed to a toy gun. harm stead village trustee lamont johnson says the purpose is to offer safe al turner tifers to toy guns. we don't want kids playing can guns. guns are dangerous. of course real guns are dangerous toy guns probably not so much unless you throw them at somebody. brandon and antwon. >> i don't know, pete, they look. pete: if someone is using it like that that could be a problem. that's why they put orange tips on the ends of those to differentiate. >> let's be honest. pete: we have to leave it there i'm sorry. i appreciate it happy new year to you both. when it comes to 2020 we

politics. i have been struck by stories saying the energy is on the left. that would favor someone like bernie sanders who won a lot of hearts and minds but didn't get the nomination last time but there are former bernie sanders sitting on the sidelines more excited this time about beto o'rourke or someone else. >> we seen stories where bernie folks are attacking beto trying to shut him down early in the game. the pole shows a couple things. the race is wide open. is a huge deal, the hunger games on steroids. the other thing is democrats overwhelmingly don't want hillary clinton to run. she is the past and democrats are looking to turn the page. it is better to see a new fresh face rather than someone like bernie sanders or elizabeth warren.
>> republicans have a scrappy primary. do democrats tend to annoy someone? i think they probably still will. do you think the obamas will weigh in on this primary? how influential will that decision be if they do? >> obama has been meeting with prospective candidates. the story the joe biden was upset about because it was giving extra juice to up and comers. joe biden would be running for a restoration of obama's term, an older white man which in this field there will be plenty of choices and flavors for democrats to choose from. and obama endorsement would matter a lot but i think this race is wide open, democrats will not anoint someone. this will be an all-out fight for the future of the party. >> if we had this conversation
in 2014, no one would have said donald trump would win the nomination or the presidency. in 2006 you would say the same about barack obama. is the more likely kamala harris, cory booker? you look at these faces, the washington examiner had a piece saying there are 45 cases of democrats but i've been hearing from democratic party bosses watching somebody outside washington. >> it is a great point. look at jimmy carter and bill clinton, to your point even donald trump was nowhere at this point. we could very well be talking about someone this time next year who is not on the radar screen. there are a host of folks looking at this race. everyone from established folks like sherrod brown to a businessman, billionaire, howard shultz, michael bloomberg will
spend his own money to run. wide-open race. the debates will start early next june. those will be wild and out-of-control with so many candidates on stage. there could be someone emerging we are not even talking about right now. >> an interesting topic so thank you. >> they are weakened against donald trump, we will see. >> i think it will beto. this officer immigrated to the us legally to live the american dream. the man accused of killing him is an illegal immigrant. maria salazar is the daughter political refugees. she reacts the police officer asked of next. >> a van slide into a family car with three sleeping in the back seat. we will show you what happened next. excuse me a minute...
hi dad. no. don't try to get up. hi, i'm julie, a right at home caregiver. and if i'd been caring for tom's dad, i would have noticed some dizziness that could lead to balance issues. that's because i'm trained to report any changes in behavior, no matter how small, so tom could have peace of mind. we'll be right there. we have to go. hey, tom. you should try right at home. they're great for us. the right care. right at home.
>> you to react, maria salazar, daughter of cuban political refugees. both you and i are daughters of legal immigrants. we had a conversation on the couch upstairs. what does illegal immigration due to the value of legal citizenship? >> good to talk to you. it is so embarrassing for people like you and me to report in news like this, just looking at that christmas picture, that this officer took hours before he was killed with a 5-month-old baby and his wife. we cringe in the hispanic community every time this happens. what is occurring is the righteous are paying for the sinners. not every illegal is a criminal but california dropped the ball. you cannot have criminals that
are illegals walking the streets of the state and that is why you agree with the officer with the sergeant that we were showing before, this crime was preventable. >> we want a national conversation about it. wise california allowing any criminal especially illegal criminals? >> very good question. i can tell you we, the hispanic community, do not once sanctuary cities because they are sending the wrong message to the rest of the population that we hispanics want to protect criminals. we don't want to protect criminals, we want to protect the cleaning lady the guy who is mowing the lawn, the guy who was here legally but the system allows them to stay. they need to have no criminal record. if you are an illegal with a criminal record like this monster, he had two dui charges,
he is out just like the guy who killed kate steinle. the state of california is doing a disservice not only to the hispanics but the rest of the population. >> what about those who are going one step further? not just allowing people to stay but giving drivers licenses, in-state tuition, welfare benefits. if we don't have a wall on the southern border and welfare benefits we don't have a country. >> i agree with you. that is why donald trump is daring to do was other administrations have not had the gall or guts or courage to do because of the international condemnation from the liberals. we agree with securing the border and getting some type of legality to those who have been here more than 10 years and do not have a criminal record but gustavo perez arriaga does not follow on that list.
it is time for us to stop this problem at the border. we have a shut down because of the topic and look inside and see who is here that serves the community and is good for the country and give them legality, not citizenship. we have immigration reform law. >> there probably is a deal to be made to deal with those who are here illegally and haven't committed a crime and get the border sealed so we don't have another wave of people. thank you so much for joining us with your perspective, thank you. the media now attacking clarence thomas's wife because she asked where is the wall? what about the media fonz over ruth bader ginsburg? is there a double standard? >> doctor sebastian gorka joins us live.

she likes the wall. california residents are sounding the alarm, illegal aliens are carjacking attacking americans. where is the national guard? where's the wall? if you disagree with her position, go on facebook or any number of social media areas and push back on her. fight it out ideas but they attack her personally. they go after her in a vicious way. here's a conservative woman who gets lambs. >> the quote is an article, they didn't respond. what is going on with jenny thomas? she looks and sounds like the washington wife of your with pearl earrings, reagan red cocktail a fire, sunglasses, tiara, but meanwhile on facebook she's behaving like a slightly paranoid neighbor who stockpiles bullets and astronaut food. went to know what they think of conservatives? it is right at the end.
>> and editor that approved it which is nothing but slander of trump supporters, a longtime conservative grassroots activist. she doesn't hide it at all. >> there is a first amendment, she speaks out. >> attempt to pile on her. >> women who speak their mind as long as they are not conservative, she speaks her mind. >> ruth bader ginsburg speaks out, people swoon. watch. >> he has gained cult status, known to some of her fans as the notorious rg. >> she is the fourth liberal vote on a very closely divided court. if she were to become ill or forced to leave the court, it would give donald trump something very few president's have which is the ability to name three justices to the
supreme court. >> ruth bader ginsburg is hospitalized with fractured ribs. that she need ribs? i've got ribs. she can take mine, some to give me a pair of pliers. >> there is a movie coming out about her and the documentary. as a conservative woman there is no way in heck conservative any conservative woman ever gets that kind of coverage. >> they are not going after her hair? falls asleep during the state of the union every year. if you wanted to, they don't, people are respectful and respected never returned to conservatives. >> they criticize jenny thomas for speaking her mind. ruth bader ginsburg has spoken her mind when she is not supposed to because she is supposed to look like she is unbiased as a supreme court justice and she never gets criticized for that. >> we asked you to comment on
this, donna wrote a glaring all asking.dard, no one like a >> justice ginsburg has a funding movie release after proving she has been an activist judge, made several partisan statements, double standard. >> almost like the left these are is the epicenter of the resistance. part of it. it exists in the supreme court. she will retire until trump is out of office. that may not be what she is saying but it is all part of resisting the president. >> they are so afraid something might happen to her, they do not want to give the president at a third chance. >> we wish her well. it is a double standard is what we are pointing out, no ill will towards justice ginsburg, she has a first amendment right to speak. when jenny thomas speaks i get
to have elbow about her position, that is what america is about but they go further, they go to blonde barbs and earrings. >> terrible. i have to get my tro on. we have some headlines for you. take a look at this terrifying collision, camera. sliding on icy roads in scotland, slams into a family car. a 3-year-old sleeping in the back of the car. everyone in the vehicle walked away with minor injuries. texas lawmakers are pushing for harsher punishments, the houston chronicle reported the lone star state is considering two bills to prosecute package theft the same as home burglary. penalties based on the number of packages stolen rather than the value of the packages. supports pirates could face 20 years in prison. of past, the book is going to affect next year. interesting way to solve the problem. universal orlando result sued

immigration which the american people overwhelmingly oppose. people who enter the united states without our permission are illegal aliens. illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the us legally. >> here to react, former deputy assistant to the president and author of why we fight, doctor sebastian gorka. back then he used the illegal word. today you say that like a curse words. why the change in tween 9 years? >> four years later trump schumer sponsored a bill through the senate that was all about immigration reform, would have increased funding for building a barrier and would have pushed the number of cvp officers up to 40,000 agents because back then it was popular. back then they were going with the flow. now we have a president who
wants to make that a reality but no, now they have to block everything. the democrats are more interested in getting our war fighters in trouble for having their m aga had signed by the president and protecting us from illegals that murdered ronil singh in california. >> last year representative gutierrez that i don't love the idea of the wall but to help the daca kids i will support this, i will a the breakdown for it. what happened to the dealmaking democrat to try to get something done for immigration reform for the daca kids? why can't we come together? >> we saw the little man behind the curtain like the wizard of oz, the president, a compassionate man, said you want to deal with the daca? i will deal double, 100,000, i will give you 1.6. what the democrats do in return?

why did they refuse that already? >> we are here today. why not get a deal? get the wall funding. >> the president has sent a signal to all americans, this is the moment your representatives choose over american citizens and illegals. i'm an immigrant, i came here legally. why shouldn't everybody else? the president gave them the option. they rejected him. they want they vote or base, they are obsessed with not having voter id. this is about power, not about compassion. you want to protect people who are trafficked, build the wall, give the president the money. >> don't deport. >> american people want the government to work, they want a solution for the daca could then there's an appetite for the wall, there's a deal to be made. we will see if he make something happen.
