have to arrived in this country before the age of 16. you also need to get a high school top of your class, only suddenly to face the threat of deportation to a country that you know nothing about. with a language you might not even speak. >> shepard: causing the amnesty making run around the congress by making a change on his own. republicans are accusing the president tonight, ed, of playing politics in the middle of a, well, political season. >> well, shep, obviously just
7:02 pm
a few months before the election and the hispanic vote is going to be critical, especially in some of those key battle grounds, not just obvious ones like florida but also nevada, out west, a growing hispanic population that the state poet the president and presumptive nominee mitt romney want that's why lawmakers on capitol hill say this is all about politics. take a listen. >> he is throwing that aside and politically pandering in an election year because he, and all of us know how important the hispanic vote is but i think this is a disingenuous way to capture that vote. >> i spoke today with the homeland security secretary janet napolitano. she rejected that and said politics was not involved at the white house did not dictate this policy. she said her department did it and they did it because they think it's a wiser use of resources to not go after young people who were illegal. didn't as you note noted, brought here by their parents, actually going to school or serving america in the military, shep. >> shepard: the president has always held this is what he
7:03 pm
thought was right. didn't he at one point say he couldn't could this without congress? >> absolutely. that is what is tripping him up a little bit on this which is that last year he was at a town hall forum and basically suggested i can't do something like this on my own. we really need congress to pass it. take a listen. >> with respect that i can suspend through executive order. that's not the case. because there are laws on the books that congress has passed. >> now, bottom line is the white house says, look, we can do away with any controversy here. if republicans would just meet the president half way and pass the dream act which would do all of this mentioned plus provide a path to citizenship for these illegals, republicans have blocked that on the hill. and it's important to note that this executive action stops short of that pathway to citizenship and that's why the white house believes they can do it, shep. >> shepard: a weird and really quite disrespectful to the presidency outburst during his
7:04 pm
speech today. >> there was a reporter from the conservative web site the daily caller that the reporter basically started shouting at the president before he had finished his remarks and was demanding it know basically whether the president favors foreign workers over american workers. the president responded with a lot of passion. take a listen. the answer to your question sir and next time i prefer you let me finish my statement before you ask the question is is this the right thing to do for the person -- american people? >> you shout questions but typically you wait at least until the president is finished out of his remarks out oof respect for not only him but for the office. in this case it did not happen. shep. >> shepard: the president and his republic challenger mitt romney are both trying to sway hispanic voters in the presidential election. suggested plan does not go far enough and he would like to
7:05 pm
see legislation dealing with this issue. >> i believe the status of young people who come here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered and should be solved on a long-term basis so they know what their future would be in this country. i think the action that the president took today makes it more difficult to reach that long term solution because an executive order of course is just a short-term matter it can be reversed by subsequent presidents. >> governor romney son the first leg of a bus tour through several battleground states. started today in new hampshire. from there he is to head to pennsylvania, then ohio, and western, and iowa before finishing up in michigan next week. our chief political correspondent carl cammeron is in d.c. what's the focus of these visits here, carl? >> certainly a lot more on rural voters than latinos romney had positions in both the 2008 and 2012 primaries. important for both parties since the latino vote is

7:07 pm
visibility exercises too. don't kid yourself they are not spending all five days on buses. for most part the players are going to fly from state to state and when they get there buses waiting. tailgate politicking, shep. >> shepard: new and serious accusations of secret service agents behaving badly long before that hooker scandal took place. the government has just released more than 200 pages of claims that date way back to 2004. the associated press and other news organizations requested these files after secret service agents were accused of bringing hookers back to the hotel room in april. the agents were supposed to be getting ready for president obama's visit there the newly released accusations include sexual assault, picking up prostitutes and publishing pornography. documents do not reveal whether any of those claims turned out to be true. doug mckelway going through the documents. is he in d.c. tonight. doug? >> these are merely incident reports. everything from serious allegations to frivolous

7:31 pm
seeing huge examples at home. >> to me it's a huge problem. i can't quantify it when i have a pediatric oncologist with tears in her eyes in south carolina telling me she has to decide which patient gets drugs that day, that's not the america that i want to live in. >> gowdy's colleague, chairman darrell issa says the shortage appears to be the direct result of over aggressive and obsessive regulatory action. >> shepard: the f.d.a. is denying these charges. >> preventing shortages is a top priority. we recognize that the problem of drug shortages is a complex and stems from interconnected series of factors. however, manufacturing and quality problems continue to account for the majority of current shortages. these issues have mainly occurred with sterile injectable drugs. so the f.d.a. is placing blame elsewhere but members of the house oversight committee say they are not going to let this go. they will be demanding answers
7:32 pm
from the f.d.a. shep? >> shepard: mike emanuel live on capitol hill tonight. thanks. for the first time the white house is admitting what we have known for a while, that it's launching deadly attacks against terrorists. a report to congress confirms the military has indeed taken direct action against members of al qaeda and affiliates in yemen and somalia. experts tell us direct action is a military term that refers to drone strikes and other attacks. in all cases we are focused on al qaeda members and affiliates who pose a direct threat to the united states or to our national interest. if you want to write a book about your life, go right ahead. no one is going to stop you. but it's a different set of rules for folks who have worked in u.s. intelligence. anything they write has to go through the censors. state secrets, all that but america's spy agency is reportedly looking into whether sensors are redacting information for political reasons. catherine herridge is in washington tonight. catherine, it's my understanding that a lot of this has to do with waterboarding. >> that's right, shep.

7:34 pm
waterboarding got valuable intelligence and saving lives. timing may be everything here. there is upcoming report investigates whether waterboarding of high value detainees including khalid sheikh mohammed was worth it? >> they have been working for years on a review that is supposed to be released this summer and their conclusions are very different from mine. and maybe the truth hurts. maybe they can't take the truth. >> we could not get more specifics on the congressional report or its possible release as i mentioned the amount of money that the united states owes to china runs into 13 figures australia's entire economy. a group in the u.s. claims it may have found a way to put america back on even footing with the communist nation. fox reports on the possibility that china actually does not owe money to the united
