4:00 pm
as school zones. apparently drivers are slowing down. now they may have more of these. watch out for that. fair, balanced, unafraid. the good thing martha thank you don't get a ticket. you just slow down. >> martha: bret thank you very much. alright. so if you believe that it is important to have a secure border that one senseless murder of an american citizen by someone who is here illegally or that it's opioids or heroin crossing into the united states even at our ports of entry is a problem or if it is members of the ms13 who cut the throats of their victims, almost a thousand of them were arrested last year, then many in the media and on capitol hill will tell you you are falling for a manufactured crisis this president just used the backdrop of the oval office to
4:01 pm
manufacture a crisis. >> president trump must stop holding american people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis. >> what the president is doing is manufacturing a crisis. >> well this is a manufactured crisis. >> for the family of california police officer corporal ronil singh it is quite real. >> ronil singh was my older brother. yes, he is not coming back. but, there is a lot of people out there that miss him. and a lot of law enforcement people that i don't know who worked days and nights to make this happen. i would like to thank you for from the bottom of my heart. to make this happen. >> martha: reggie sing will join me in moments.
4:02 pm
first trace gallagher. >> martha it was 1:00 in the morning, one hour after christmas was officially over that ronil singh stopped 33 year old air i can't go good afternoon on suspicion of driving under the influence. several seconds later he called shot fired over the police radio. minutes later his colleagues found him mortality wounded. ariaga was on the run for two days before being captured as he tried to flea back to mexico. six of them were in the us illegally. president had been arrested for drunk driving in 2011 and again in 2014. under california's sanctuary policies, immigration ask customs enforcement were not notified of those arrests and ariaga stayed in the us. several california sheriff's blame the state's sanctuary law for officer singh's death.
4:03 pm
former california governor jerry brown is pushing back, saying the law didn't take effect until 2018. he fails to mention in 2013 he signed the trust account a plea cursor to the sanctuary law which also prevented local law enforcement from cooperating with immigration agents and as far bass back at 2012 then california attorney general cam ma la harells sent a letter to police agencies saying in part, quote, several local law enforcement agencies appear to treat immigration detainers, sometimes called ice holds as mandatory orders. immigration detainers are not compulsory. instead they are merely requests. bottom line, california counties have been ignoring ice detainers for years. also it's unclear if perez ariaga will face the death
4:04 pm
penalty. >> america's heart broke the day after christmas when a young police officer in california was savagely murdered in cold blood by an illegal alien. just came across the border. the life of an american hero was stolen by someone who had no right to be in our country. imagine if it was your child. your husband. or your wife. whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken. >> martha: corporal ronil sin singh's brother reggie joins me. when you heard the president talk about your family, about your brother last night, what was that like for you? it felt good that, you know, something is being done. ronil is not coming back. but if we could do something about it, and save other lives,
4:05 pm
law enforcement, any family, you know, we definitely don't want any other family to go through what we are going through right now. so, president trump is addressing the issue. and i just hope that it will be taken care of. >> martha: i want to the play a little bit from the day on december the 28th, your brother was killed by someone who was here illegally, and who had two dui arrests and was purported to be a member of a gang. he is the alleged killer, i should say at this stage of the process. this is part of that news conference. let's play that. >> i wish i could thank all the law enforcement agencies, homeland security in san francisco, everyone, if i could speak to you, i was waiting for this to happen. i would like to thank you for working day and night to make this happen. >> martha: tell me a little bit about that moment for you reggie. >> you know, ronil looking down,
4:06 pm
i know all he wanted was justice. and you know, suspect has been apprehended. and you know, people worked, a lot of law enforcement worked days and nights to make that happen. it was heart breaking. ronil is not coming back, but you know, when the suspect was apprehended, you know, it felt good. it felt good, you know. yeah. >> martha: i want to play a little bit of the stan it's clause county sheriff adam christianson talking about the alleged killer. watch this. >> had he been deported this wouldn't have happened? >> potentially. if he wasn't here then he wouldn't have been driving drunk and it wouldn't have been reported to officer singh and the enforcement stop potentially
4:07 pm
never would have occurred. my the point is why are we providing sanctuary for criminals? gang members? it's a conversation we need to have. >> martha: it's so hard to watch, reggie. obviously it's been such a difficult, difficult time for you and your family tell me. tell me how your family came here and how you felt when you realized that the person who was responsible did not go through the same process. >> so my family, we migrated in 2003. we got sponsored and we did everything legally. we came here, we were green card holders. and after five years my brother, in my brother's case, go he was asked to get his citizenship in order to become -- to be part of law enforcement. and he got his citizenship. and i was able to get my citizenship also.
4:08 pm
and we were -- we are now american, law abiding american citizenship holders. and the day i found out that the suspect was illegal immigrant and had prior dui's, go two dui's, my question was that why we did not react the first time he had a dui? if he's an illegal immigrant? and i feel like we shouldn't be giving people second chance. illegal immigrants, we shouldn't be giving second chance to them. if he would have been deported, my brother would be alive right now. i would not be doing this interview. what i truly feel about this, is you know, if we make our immigration laws stricter, if we take action, and not allow an illegal immigrant to get second chance, i think that, you know,
4:09 pm
we could minimize the crime rate we are having. >> martha: you know i know he was just recently became a canine officer. and i understand that the dog that he worked with, he was very close to. that dog is going to be given to the family, his wife and his young child, i assume. talk to me a little bit about them, how they're doing. give everybody a sense of all that. >> so sam is not doing well. she's locked in ronil's berm. she is laying on his bed. he knows that ron is no longer with the samly. >> this is the dog. he's sad, he's not active. this is the dog, sam is the canine dog. sam is not active any more. at this moment he is protecting my sister-in-law, the wife, and the baby. because sam feels like that he
4:10 pm
needs to step up and protect the family now. so if anyone, if my uncle or aunt tries to play with the baby, sam does not like it. sam feels like that you know ron is not here, i've got for protect the family now, because sam is fully aware that ron is not here. and our mourning, you know, starts with crying. i spend the night at my brother's house, i woke up and yesterday my sister-in-law was crying. i go to my house, my parents are crying. and it's just every morning our day starts with crying. >> martha: that is the grieving process, it doesn't help at all to hear that, because you wake up and the reality of what happened hits you all over again, just in case you forgot it when you were sleeping. we feel for you and we thank you for your brother's service and we pray for your family. and we want everyone to know
4:11 pm
that there are a number of charities, a go fund me page and tunnel to towers is helping with some of your expenses. reggie thank you very much for being here today thank you. >> martha: please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. >> thank you so much. >> martha: so, we are about to enter day 20 now of this government shut down. today at the white house president trump said by bias he walked out of the meeting with nancy pelosi and chuck schumer, calling the meeting a quote total waste of his time. sean spicer is up next. >> the president walked into the room and passed out candy. it's true!
4:12 pm

4:15 pm
like magic. at comcast, it's my job to develop, apps and tools that simplify your experience. my name is mike, i'm in product development at comcast. we're working to make things simple, easy and awesome. . >> martha: a lot of meetings today on this. president trump met this afternoon with speaker pelosi and senator chuck schumer to try to put together a deal to re-open the parts of the government or currently shut down, about 25% of the government. and then also secure the border and find agreement on. that but here is how it ended. >> unfortunately the president just got up and walked out. >> the president would go back and forth in a negotiation. in a very respectful way. >> it's cold out here and the temperature wasn't much warmer in the situation room.
4:16 pm
>> president trump: well the president walked into the room and passed out candy, it was true. >> martha: oh my, after the meeting the president tweeted this, just left a meeting with chuck and nancy, a total waste of time. i asked what is going to happen in 30 days if i quickly open things up, meaning the government, are you going to approve border security which includes a wall or a steel barrier? nancy said no. i said bye-bye. nothing else works! >> martha: former white house press secretary sean spicer joins me now. what do you make of what you heard about that meeting this afternoon and what happens next? i don't know what happens next. look the president laid out a very compelling case last night. the idea that border security, national security, human trafficking and drugs flowing over our southern border are somehow now a political football is wrong. frankly it is political in 2013 all 54 senate democrats voted
4:17 pm
for 40 plus billion dollars of border security, including 700 miles of fencing. the only reason there's opposition is because it's donald trump that is proposing this. one of my predecessors and one of the fox contractors ari fleischer had a great idea. nancy pelosi and trump and schumer should give all the money to the border patrol and say they get to decide what goes on. because the reality is that anybody with a brain will recognize we need a combination of border wall and fencing along the southern border that we have, that's always been a by partisan issue. if we take trump's name out of it, if we called it the schumer border security bill they would probably pass it. the only reason they're against it is because it's trump. >> martha: they don't seem to be in favor of real border security point. when you look at the left of their party, nancy pelosi and chuck schumer sort of represent a kind of language that used to
4:18 pm
be spoken quite a bit on the part of democrats that they wanted border security. you're not hearing that the way that you used to. because i think they're getting a lot of pressure from folks who are further left on the spectrum than they are. they can't talk like that any more. >> that's right. you look, nancy pelosi almost didn't become speaker when there was no one running against her >> martha: right. >> because of the far progressives. she used to be the one we as republicans cited as the far left policy maker. she's now the mainstream of the democratic party. she's continuing to make sure to keep her left wing in check. this shouldn't be a political issue. this is something that democrats have voted for in the past. >> martha: you're absolutely right t shouldn't. when you listen to their reaction to the the's address it was all about all of the lies, all of the fact checking that was required to get through the president's address, the contention that border crossings
4:19 pm
have fallen, you know, these are tricky numbers. because when you look at the number of unaccompanied alien children that number was up 211% last year. family crossings up 42%. everybody picks the numbers they like better i guess. >> here is what is ridiculous when we have a discussion about that. >> it only takes one to be a problem. why do we sit back? we have security in the airports not because there's a ton of people doing ill will. you put locks on your door not because you've been broken into a hundred times, because you want to stop that one time. one person coming in killing another person illegally is too many. we should be doing everything we can. this is not just about a wall. the president is committed to overall border security this. shouldn't be a discussion. the idea we're not looking at the officer's family you just had last week saying normally we all gather together and say what can we do to make sure this never happens again.
4:20 pm
>> martha: people watch that segment and say it's propaganda. it's that person's life. it's what's happening in their family right now. i want to get the media response, because it's interesting, this is chris cuomo and don lemon last night. listen closely to the language here. i want to get your thoughts on it. >> wanting barriers along the border is not propaganda. it's not immoral, it's not wrong the facts about that, what wants it. >> that's where your job comes this. >> it's not a cure all. there are other aspects. >> 100%. other technologies that go along with that. >> martha: what do you get that it there? i'm a little shocked. they've made sort of a cottage industry out of attacking the president. when they're on board i think it recognizes the compelling case that the president made last night. the overall nature in which this shouldn't be a political issue. we should all come together. when you see folks like that whovb very critical of the
4:21 pm
president recognize how important this issue is to the security of our country to preventing human trafficking, stopping the flow of illegal drugs it shouldn't a question of whether there's 4000 crossings, 20 on 00 or ten. it should be protecting our people, whether coming over illegally, protecting them from the flow of drugs, women and children being trafficked, one is too many. the bottom line is this. this is the president has made it clear he's going to protect the counsel from you and our people. we should be coming together on this. let's fight it out over tax rates and regulations and reform. this should be something we should be coming together for. >> martha: it's interesting to note that chris cuomo had been in a closed door briefing from the president who by all reports was very, very committed and i guess somewhat persuasive perhaps to some people in that room. hours later that's what you heard from chris cuomo over at
4:22 pm
cnn. sean thank you very much. good to see you tonight. >> good to see you. >> martha: will democrats return the money they received from mega donor ed over this, after a second man was found dead in his house. governor mike huckabee up next. >> the individual came over, had already been partying, apparently had already taken some substances. i don't keep track of regrets.
4:23 pm
i never count the wrinkles. and i don't add up the years. but what i do count on, is staying happy and healthy. so, i add protein, vitamins and minerals to my diet with boost®. boost® high protein nutritional drink has 20 grams of protein, along with 26 essential vitamins and minerals your body needs. all with guaranteed great taste. the upside- i'm just getting started. boost® high protein be up for life.
4:24 pm
4:25 pm
4:26 pm
. >> martha: there are brand new developments tonight on a story we told you about first last night. for the second time in less than two years a black man was found dead at the home of ed buck! a prominent democratic donor who has reportedly given more than $116,000 to candidates, some of them are distancing themselves from buck and redirecting their donations to charities, including kristen cinema. he is still a freeman. some are wondering what roll race could possibly be playing in this case. >> this was a black man and there were two white bodies found in his apartment there is
4:27 pm
no way he would not be in the jail right now lawyering up. >> here now former arkansas governor mike huckabee. governor good to see you tonight. what is your reaction to this whole situation? >> i cannot disagree with the protest or that you just had on. i think he's right. if these had been two white guys in a black guy's apartment and both of them had died from drug overdoses and the person who owned the apartment was physically there when they died and it happened twice in two years yeah i think he would be in jail as a suspect. he's innocent until proven guilty i but by golly there's crazy stuff going on in that guy's house. there is no way he can completely distance himself from that. >> martha: one of the reasons a lot of people who are looking at this think that it needs to be investigated a bit more, the journal entries that were found in jamil moore who is one of the individuals who died at his house, i've become addicted to
4:28 pm
drugs and the worst one at. that ed buck is the one to thank. he gave me my first injection of crystal meth. it was very painful. but after all the troubles i became addicted. i would imagine at the very least they need to ask mr. buck some questions, governor. >> well you would really think so. if a prosecutor read that journal entry and didn't want to bring him in for some serious questioning and perhaps try to figure out how does a person turn a young 20 something year old into a drug addict and not have some responsibility, when the person dies of an overdose? i just don't understand that. we asked early on was this about race? i think that's part of it. i think part of it is this guy is so connected. let's be clear. i don't blame any of the democrat politicians for what ed buck did. i think the tendency that maybe a guy on my side of the aisle might have is to say look at these democrats they took money from a sleez bag >> martha: there are a lot of
4:29 pm
sleez bags, right? >> there are sleez bags in both parties. but donors, here is the thing donors give money to cover themselves and appear to be something they're not. big amounts of money can make them seem to be respectable. they can get their picture made with celebrities in the political world and it gives them cover. i think that's what ed buck was doing all this time. >> martha: switching gears in a big way i want to talk about the supreme court. there's been a lot of concern obviously about justice ginsburg who has now missed three days i believe of the arguments so far. and it just raises the question about, you know, procedure. it's interesting to note that the chief justice william rehnquist, he missed a significant amount of time 09 bench, he missed five months while he was undergoing treatment. so there is a president for this, for not physically being present as part of this process well absolutely. people get sick.
4:30 pm
it's part of the way of life. she's 85 years old. she had a fall, she's had surgery, she was diagnosed with cancer, she's had treatment for that. the fact that she takes time off i don't think anybody ought to get all excited about that. people, a third of her age would be taking off, given all the health issues she has. i think the one thing that i would point out is that this is not a time if people to start speculating, should she retire? does she have to retire? she shouldn't retire until she decides she wants to retire. i'm going to be the first, i don't agree with hardly anything she ever opines but i respect she was legally appointed and then confirmed almost unanimously by the senate back in the 90s, whether it there was a sense of respecting president's nominees. let's hoip she goes out under her terms when she is ready to
4:31 pm
not when someone else says. let's hope they would treat the next appointment with the same respect she was treated back in the 90s. >> martha: very well put. it's the only branch that has a lifetime appointment. so it can be free from political persuasion and i want action. we wish her well, ruth bader ginsburg as we watch that story unfold. thank you sir. good to he zoo you governor. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks march that you bet. >> martha: his department faced very sharp criticism for the handling of the parkland school shooting. sheriff israel who became known to the nation out of this track i didn'ted tragedy may soon be out of a job. back with reaction to this. >> the actions of a few people that day should not taint the hard working men and women of the broward sheriff's office and the other law enforcement
4:32 pm
officers. age-related macular degeneration, amd, i wanted to fight back. my doctor and i came up with a plan. it includes preservision. only preservision areds 2 has the exact nutrient formula recommended by the national eye institute to help reduce the risk of progression of moderate to advanced amd. that's why i fight. because it's my vision. preservision. also, in a great-tasting chewable.

4:36 pm
>> martha: tonight signs pointing to the suspension of broward county sheriff scott israel over his department's handling of the parkland school shooting. 17 people died on february 14th, valentine's day in 2018 at the school. critics say that israel's team missed warning signs repeatedly and then failed to act quickly on the day of the shooting. trace gallagher has the back story tonight. trace martha. the miami heard is reporting that scott israel told his staff he expects to be removed from office. and some students are certainly pushing for his removal. but as of now florida's new governor ron desantis has taken no action against israel and the sheriff's attorney says she have
4:37 pm
not been warned about any impending suspension. today on "fox & friends" governor desantis said after reading a report on the shooting a decision could be made soon. watch. >> it was really troubling to read some of the things that could have been done to prevent one of the most awful tragedies we've had. >> during the massacre broward county sheriff's deputies took cover behind cars and trees even though one deputy radioed that he knew where the shooter was. coral spinnings officers saw them taking shelter while they ran in the school. there is dispatch video and audio showing scott peterson taking shelter despite seeing the shooter in the stairwell. sheriff israel litter said the actions sick enned him. during an interview with cnn the sheriff refused to take any responsibility. >> jake i can only take responsibility for what i knew
4:38 pm
about. i exercised my due diligence. i've given amazing leadership to this agent. >> amazing leadership? >> yes, jake. there's a lot of things we've done throughout. >> two months after israel gave that interview 85% of the rank and file of the broward county sheriff's office voted no confidence in the sheriff, though israel calls the vote a union ploy to get a pay raise. >> martha: trace thank you very much. my next guest has been calling for accountability with sheriff israel for months. here now deputy sheriff jeff bell, president of the brourmd sheriff's deputy association. good to have you with us, as i recall thank you >> martha: it doesn't seem like this has happened yet. do you think it's true that he will be suspended? is there still hope for him? >> i don't think there's any hope left for sheriff israel. all roads are now the pointing towards the sheriff's remove. it's just a matter of whether or not the governor can find a duty
4:39 pm
able replacement at the earliest time and go ahead and remove sheriff israel. he is incompetent to lead an agency of this size. he is incapable of understanding the severity of the mistakes he's been making within the sheriff's office to lead an agency this size. his number one picks and surrounding command staff have torn down this agency to a level we have never seen before. and he is on the verge of being the second sheriff removed from office in the last 12 years at the broward sheriff's office a fete that should never be seen within a police department and he's going to be the second one soon. >> martha: i've gone through the point that you detail about how you believe he was supporting sheriff israel throughout his time there and he changed the, in 2013, he changed the active shooter policy and replaced the language will respond to may respond. you know in all of this it would be sort of ugly if it weren't
4:40 pm
for the fact that 17 people were killed under his watch. >> absolutely. this is just a pattern of what sheriff israel hassle done throughout his administration. he started with the intentional rewording to make it more appeasing to the public. then he started going into our police department and instead of having what we used to train under the warrior mindset meaning not to be the victim first, take the fight to the bad guys first when just identified, he started implementing policies saying we have ton polite and fair to everybody and ask them dozens of times to please put your hands behind your back and risk the officers' safety. this man and policies and the individuals he has personally hand picked to be the upper level of the command staff of the sheriff's office has done more damage to this agency than i can ever recall in the 24 years i've been here. >> this is a picture of fans that he ordered in support of
4:41 pm
himself, essentially, which just arrived. i guess he ordered them some time ago, i guess they were never handed out. would you call this self promotion? >> absolutely. this is what the sheriff considers amazing leadership. these fans were ordered in december of last year. they just arrived in the chief of staff's office. she handed them out in the community. that's absolutely disgufrting that on the same month that the sheriff is expecting the report and the release of the commission that he authorizes and approves the expenditure of taxpayer money to buy fans like this to give out to community members throughout the church was, what the community should doin' stead of cooling themselv themselves off, they should fuel the flames to keep the heat against sheriff israel and make sure that governor desantis removes scott israel from office. every day that this sheriff stays in office f. it's the community's children that are at
4:42 pm
risk, the community safety at risk. every day he sits in office we're all at risk is it. >> martha: that report was stunning. we heard the governor talking about reading through it himself and how disgusted he was with what he found in it. we m we may hear news on this by the end of the week. good to see you, thank you very much thank you. >> martha: freshman fire brand side stepping and issuing her own rebuttal to the president's oval office address. >> the women and children on that border trying to seek refuge and opportunity in the united states of america with nothing but the shirt on their backs are acting more american than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be. hingg [indistinct conversation]

4:45 pm
4:46 pm
♪ . >> martha: well she has been in congress for less than a week. already alex andrea ocasio-cortez seems to be stealing the spotlight from chuck schumer and nancy pelosi. she issued with a call to abolish ice. watch. >> the president should not be asking for more money to an agency that has systematically violated human rights. the president should be
4:47 pm
defending why we are funding such an agency at all. right now we're seeing death. right now we're seeing a violation of human rights. this is systematic. it is wrong. it is anti american. >> martha: here now charlie hurt opinion editor and david brown former senior advisor and a democratic strategist. david brown let me chart with you. according to go our information she just voted at part of the last funding measure to support ice. so you know she certainly seems to be against this horrible inhuman institution but she supported the payment to ice hey martha, good evening. i watched her remarks in their entirety last night. what i heard her saying was that she wanted us to be focussing on ice and on the role that ice had in the death of the child who was in custody on christmas day. she was expressing moral outrage
4:48 pm
that anyone would be in jeopardy of dying. she said, and i think this is appropriate for her to say that we should be exercising oversight and holding any federal agency to k i'm not sure i would read her comments the way perhaps you have. there's a broader point here too which is again we find out selves as a country debating immigration. there's a right and wrong way to do. that the right way is to open the government and allow for democrats and republicans to come to the table and actually create a space where we can have a real debate and allow for compromise and find a way forward. the wrong way is where we are now at this impasse with the president holding federal employees and the families hostage. >> martha: she is definitely vocal. whoopi goldberg didn't think it was a great idea. here she is on that. >> there are a whole bunch of people in the democratic party who have been busting their "bleep" to make sure that women get what they need, people get
4:49 pm
what they need, children get what they need. so you just got in there. and i know you got lots of good ideas. but i would encourage you, to sit still for a minute and learn the job. >> martha: charlie? >> welcome to the 2020 campaign cycle. i think we're going to be seeing it this for the next few years [ laughter ] >> the whole reason that nancy pelosi and chuck schumer went out last night to deliver the remarks is that they're desperate to not only counter president trump but to give a reasonable response for their party. of course that gets completely undermined when you have somebody far more exciting and youthful and says quite frankly crazy things, like ocasio-cortez talking about how un-american the ice agents are? this is like really super fringe stuff that even democrats don't agree with. but honestly the biggest problem i think remains that not
4:50 pm
necessarily cortez's statements although all of that about ice and sanctuary cities, really does undercut any reasonable argument that democrats might make. but you know, if you just listen to what nancy pelosi said, the idea that she says the wall is immor immoral? and that the entire thing is a manufactured crisis by the president? those are pretty outlandish things, too. i don't know which is harder to defend against. >> martha: nancy pelosi and chuck schumer and al ocasio-cortez have called for the government to re-open t ocasio-cortez said she thought members of congress should forgo their salaries. >> i would agree with that. >> other people aren't getting paid. >> martha: we called her office, she's been asked several times. she said i've got to go when she
4:51 pm
was asked about it. down whether or not she has forgone her own salary? >> i don't. i'm always a fan of holding congress accountable. i was serving as an aid in 2013 when the republicans shut down the government to pick a fight with president obama. i was held on loan with hundreds of federal employees. this is not a game. there is a real cost to folks. it's about whether they can make their mortgage, pay for gas or food. i was reading stories this weekend. most americans don't have save ings, for a lot of people this inside the beltway blufter with the president and mitch mcconnell on the floor of the senate has meaningful consequences for people at home. that's the heart breaking piece of this. >> martha: they've had a long time to work it out. they get to this point and most people who run any business thinks is reprehensible and ridiculous. that's where we are. i have to leave it there. guys thank you very much.
