on. the county executive issued an executive order saying they will not work with ice to remove these people from their communities. they are here illegally and should be removed, counties and other jurisdictions should work hard to cooperate with ice. threats like this don't exist in the community. >> when ice files detainer does it mean individuals should not be released until ice is there? ice can in fact go into the jail they have to arrest them in the parking lot? >> the safest way to do it is with cooperating jurisdiction and there are many across the country that do that. they allow ice access, when somebody is released on state and local charges ice could take them into custody in the same setting. otherwise they have to find them in the community. it is more beneficial to everyone involved for this to occur?

people sitting at home are thinking this isn't common sense. does it have to be across-the-board the same for everyone kick you you would think someone accused of rape or murder or assault there would be different policies for them? >> it is against the law for these folks to be in the country whether they cross the border illegally, a simple request for assistance to that jurisdiction to turn the person over makes everybody safer. it is more efficient for the governor as well. those are preventable crimes for people here illegally. shannon: anything the government can do on the federal level? >> a number of programs within ice can help counties cooperate. the 2807g program, a number of things shares and local jurisdictions can do to cooperate with ice in an efficient way.
heather: a lot of politics playing into it now. >> not a good thing for the people of montgomery county that work hard and pay their taxes and follow the rule of law. we are asking sheriff in jurisdictions to do the same thing. shannon: not fair to people who deserve to be protection and paying these individuals to do so. thank you so much for joining us, appreciate it, have a good day. the time is 19 after the top of the hour, taylor swift slammed the president, now the white house is firing back. >> if you say on the street that is a knockout. if you put it in a tweet it is a copout. i love that. washington in a nutshell. heather: carly shimkus has a social media reaction to kellyanne conway's west response. when we started our business we were paying an arm and a leg for postage. i remember setting up shipstation. one or two clicks and everything was up and running.
