6:03 pm
liz: we have all the angles covered on border from edward lawrence in d.c. to fox news's casey stegall on the border in texas. begin with edward lawrence at the white house. reporter: a major shake-up at the white house. department of homeland security secretary and head of the secret service ousted. kirstjen nielsen resigned sunday hours after she had been with the president on the border. today she took the high road talking about the administration border policies. >> i share the president's goal of securing the border. i will continue to support all efforts to address the humanitarian and security crisis on the border. other than that i'm on my way to keep doing what i can for the next few days. reporter: the white house saying they wanted somebody stronger on the border. the administration in the department of homeland security job.
6:04 pm
the administration could still run into legal problems here. the federal judge in california within the last hour offered an injunction against the president's man to return non-mexican asylum-seekers back to mexico to wait for their court hearing. the administration today also naming u.s. customs u.s customsr protection kevin mcaleenan, as acting department of homeland security secretary. house speaker nancy pelosi released a statement talking about all of this. america needs a homeland security secretary who will respect the sanctity of families, honor our proud heritage as nation of immigrants and restore sanity to this administration's policies. the president removing randall alles, the head of the u.s. secret service. releasing a statement he served well over the past two years as head of that agency. white house on international stage for the very first time ever declaring part of a government a terrorist organization.
6:05 pm
the white house declaring part of the iranian government as a possible terrorist group. just listen to secretary of state mike pompeo. >> the islamic republic's revolution theirry guard corps participated in terrorism and activated other terrorist groups. irgc masquerades as legitimate military organization but none of us should be fooled. reporter: critics worry that this will push iran to go directly after u.s. allies in the region. the secretary says doing nothing will do the exact same thing. they're concerned about iran's movements. liz: edward lawrence, thank you very much. let's take you to the border. mexican officials warn that the need by the trump administration to move border officials off of their other jobs at ports of entry in order to deal with the flow of migrants, it is now hitting u.s.-mex trade. stalling out tens of millions of autos and auto exports parts
6:06 pm
into the u.s. all of that stalled out at the border. casey stegall in el paso, texas with the story. casey. reporter: this sector in particular in el paso has been getting slammed especially when it comes to large groups of these migrants showing up and turning themselves in. the majority from central american countries seeking asylum. according to customs and border protection more than 70,000 apprehensions have been made in this one sector alone as of the end of last week. that is so far for fiscal year 2019. so 70,000 apprehensions in this one sector alone since october compared to 9,000 apprehensions for the same period of time just last year. there has also been an uptick in the number of unaccompanied minors taken into custody here. and the agents themselves tell us, that is probably the toughest part to see.
6:07 pm
>> it is hard to not take that stuff home, especially see kids that are sick. see kids by themselves. seen a 2-year-old, 4-year-old by themselves crossing the border with no parents with them. reporter: older sections of existing fence or barrier put under under the secure fence act are getting replaced with better materials and upgraded in certain vulnerable locations this is not new wall under president trump we should point out. infrastructure that was already paid for and was already built. and when it comes to delays in terms of getting across the border, a lot of the ports of entry and international crossing bridges like the one back here have seen significant delays because the cpb officers who normally work these lanes to inspect all of the vehicles coming in from mexico have been diverted out to the field to help border patrol agents. over the weekend commercial truck drivers trying to move imported products from mexico
6:08 pm
into the united states reported wait times of more than 10 hours, just to get across the border. liz: thank you, casey stegall at the border in texas. so much of what is going wrong here, critics have said what is going wrong here over the decade are bad policy choices, awol congress and bad nonexistent messaging the both sides of the aisle say that the border what our values are, america is pro-immigrant and helping poor and destitute. the a aisle lease are crowded out in the system for people coming here for a job, even migrants admit u.s. al asylum laws don't allow. ken paxton, texas attorney general. he is doing a shakeup beyond kirstjen nielsen. what is your take? >> the president has discretion to have whoever he wants in his cabinet. if he doesn't think he is getting done what he needs done he has to make a change. this is obviously an important issue for him.
6:09 pm
and he is moving forward with his agenda. liz: senator dianne feinstein quote, homeland security has 10 top positions filled with someone in just acting capacity. dhs without a secretary a deputy secretary, i.c.e. director, a fema director and more. what is your take on that? >> so i don't have a problem with that. acting gives somebody an opportunity to see if they can prove themselves on the job. so you know may not be a bad idea to have a few acting positions to make sure the trump administration is getting what they want. liz: jeh johnson, homeland security secretary under obama says the crisis at border is real. here are the numbers. apprehensions soared in march, nearly 100,000 arrests. at that rate dhs officials say one million could be apprehended by year-end. let's get to the sound bite. it is bernie sanders who says it is bad at the border. bernie sanders now says democrats are wrong to say let's do open borders. he saying that is not my position. watch. >> who do you think is
6:10 pm
suggesting opening borders? >> you're an activist for opening -- >> no, i'm not. i'm afraid you're getting your information wrong. at that is not my view. >> i apologize, thank you. >> what we need is comprehensive immigration reform. i don't think something we can do at this point, can't do it. liz: 2020 candidate beto o'rourke is against open borders. he too supports parts of a wall. >> i'm not for open borders. i do think there are places where physical barriers alongside the 2,000-mile mexican border makes sense. liz: what your reaction there since? >> surprising from beto last week i think he said we should tear the wall down. obviously both of these candidates are starting to see the truth and sounding like president trump and calling attention to an issue that needs to be dealt with by congress. liz: national security advisor said john bolton repeatedly said according to reports that he
6:11 pm
warned the president that kirstjen nielsen was not the right person to run the agency. your take there. >> i don't know. i wasn't privy to conversations with john bolton but i think the president has the right to change whoever he wants in those positions. given the crisis and the number of people crossing the border i think he felt like he had to make a change to move this forward. liz: ken paxton, texas attorney general. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. liz: what is congress doing to fix the issues at the border? we'll debate that coming up. actress felicity huffman is among 14 suspects set to plead guilty for their roles in the largest college admissions cheating scandal in history. we'll show what you prosecutors are doing in the case to get the guilty please. we have late-breaking details coming up. ♪ anna, do you yes! those plans?

liz: welcome back. you're watching the fox business network. to the college admissions cheating scandal, the largest of its kind in american history. actress felicity huffman is among 14 suspects now set to plead guilty for their roles in the scandal. former prosecutor doug burns joins us now. great to see you, doug. >> thank you. liz: were you surprised by the plea? >> no. they had some people on tape.
6:16 pm
that is gold standard, like it is hard to defend when you're on tape. that's point one. point two, particularly respect to those who are famous actresses in hollywood, i think they're making a smart move. liz: why? >> to preserve their career and also public relations in general. they have a very marketable commodity. again, you know, that is out of my area of pure law but i think it's a good move, particularly if the evidence is strong. obviously if they had a chance of fighting the case i as a lawyer would. liz: 15,000. >> that is great point. if you look at felicity huffman what she did real quick, just for everybody to understand is, they told her she was going to make a charity contribution, okay. that is interesting because you and i discussed before the legit way of doing things versus illegal way. the legit way, i'm donating 15,000 to x university or y college. here is was clear to her it wasn't a 15,000-dollar charity. they were changing the kids scores. liz: yeah, yeah.
6:17 pm
i mean now that is irs problem. >> might. liz: felicity huffman statement saying in part, quote, my daughter knew absolutely fog about my actions. my misguided profoundly wrong way i betrayed her. my desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty. here is the thing, doug, we were reporting on camera prosecutors are going to add another charge, money laundering if people continued to plead not guilty. >> that is great point. that is part of the plea bargaining process. look we charged with you mail fraud, honest services mail fraud but we're contemplating money laundering. simple translation if you don't take the plea we'll add that. i'm not being cynical but the point is, part of this case, i'll trying to help my child so people can relate to that. again maybe a little more public relations than law but the point is -- liz: do you think they threatened bill macy in this? >> that is the other thing. in tax cases very often, i hate
6:18 pm
to make it reverse gender, honestly usually the husband. they turn around and start implying we may charge your wife. i have seen that many, many times in the last 30 years. that is another thing that can induce a plea. here to your question that might have been the case with bill macy. liz: shines a light. >> sure does. liz: how unfair it nice no question. liz: you've been mad about that for some time. >> absolutely. liz: doug burns, great to see you. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> we'll stay on the story. bring mr. burns back for more analysis. get back to the debate heating up over the border. we see it from polls and from washington and complaint around the country where is congress fixing the border? let's ask republican congressman tom reed from new york. he joins us on the phone. what is your take, sir? where is congress on fixing this? we hear a lot of criticism directed at the border but where is congress's fix? >> obviously congress is missing in action liz and i appreciate being on with you. this is a problem with
6:19 pm
leadership. this is a problem with not solving this problem everyone knows how to solve it. it will take that political leadership and will to get it done. liz: congressman, the third rail is separating families. that policy was started under obama and george w. it was enacted as zero tolerance under this white house. thousands separated including 245 after it was stopped. this is condemned by both sides. clearly didn't work as deterrent, sir. >> i agree. that is why hopefully folks know that is a possibility going forward. if we don't fix the law, if we don't take care of martin case and other substantive issues are barrier to keeping families together you will leave the administration with no choice but to do that. that is wrong. this isn't administration problem. is congress' problem, failing to lead and solve keeping families together. liz: there are so truth apparent to the story. the president pointed it out
6:20 pm
keep families in dough tension centers. he pointed out congress's failure to act and fix it. court orders put the white house in that position. your take on that? >> that is absolutely correct. i think the president nailed it. when he said this is congress' failure to act caused this problem, he issued executive order. there is questionable legality of that. where is the objection from folks in congress, hey, let's fix it. let's take care of it? the president should be applauded for doing what he can to keep these families together when it is barrier in congress causing them to be separated to begin with. he is absolutely correct. i applaud the president for it. liz: when he went to the calexico border the officials there said the border crossings dropped 70%, home invasions dropped. here is senator kamala harris out with a statement saying in part the next secretary of dhs
6:21 pm
must be committed to reuniting families, protecting human rights of those seeking asylum. sir, there is issue of loopholes that is migrants no how to work the loopholes to come in. we have bernie sanders saying no to open borders. that is not the way to go. beto o'rourke says no to open borders. that is not the way to go. every country, practically every successful country in the world have border policies people around the world respect. how do you get democrats to the table on this. >> call them out for the falsehood they're selling there. that this is somehow the president's fault. this is congress's fault. each one. individuals you cited are members of congress. they are senators that have accountability in this. they should be acting rather than blaming the president of the united states. this sneads to be a congressional fix. i will call them out for it. it is failure of leadership. now they're supposedly running for presidency and they can't fix this problem within their domain?
6:22 pm
that is wrong. they should be held accountable. liz: also about the root causes. corrupt lawless central american governments triggering the migrant outflow. do a quick change of topic, sir. you're on ways and means. the democrats continue to gun for president trump's tax returns. we're looking at the law. i covered the irs for years and testified twice before congress about irs reform. we dug into the law. the president can turn around and ask for house speaker nancy pelosi and every other democrat's tax returns as we've been reporting on this show. i mean that is it what we have seen. you know, what are you hearing on ways and means when it comes to this fight? can you tell us anything new about the fight over tax returns? >> you know, obviously we on ways and means on republican side are very concerned they're weaponizing a tool the chairman of the ways and means committee has to insure they're proper tax administration, but weaponizing it for political purposes this is very dangerous slippery slope. if you empower the ways and means chairman to go after
6:23 pm
someone for political reason you opened up pandora's box, you think lois lerner tea party type of scandal where they targeted people for their idealogical beliefs. if you empower this, you will open up a whole new level of targeting in the political arena with the weaponnization of going after someone's tax returns. liz: congressman tom reed, thank you so much for joining us. well rely appreciate it. come back soon. >> will, liz. liz: boeing weighing heavily on the dow after boeing cut back on monthly 737 max jet production. after a downgrade from bank of america merrill lynch that caused the stock to go down at the open. the dow would have been up if not for boeing. boeing knocked off 118 points off of the dow. take a look at the s&p 500, eight straight days of gains there. the longest winning streak in eight months on strength in the energy sector. let's get to the tech-heavy nasdaq, delivering the highest close since october 3rd. the nasdaq is up 7 of the last 8

6:45 pm

6:50 pm
democrats also running away from "medicare for all" because, basically that and the green new deal would unleash socialism on this planet like never before.

6:51 pm
your take. >> right, democrats in general don't like talking about the cost of any of these massive programs they're calling for so it certainly says a lot when the leader of their party is speaking out but i think we also need to realize the other defacto leader of their party is alexandria ocasio-cortez who is pushing these massive government takeover plans like the green new deal and like government-run health care and let's be clear about government-run health care, that means bureaucrats making decisions about your private health care and your private health insurance. i think once americans really realize what costs this comes at, not just financially, what it means for them personally, they're going to run away from it as we're seeing many of these members of congress that you're referencing, these democrats do already. liz: would get rid of obamacare. it would get rid of medicare, get rid of medicaid. let's get to the blacklist socialist democrats who support alexandria ocasio-cortez it is happening now. the socialists launched a dcc
6:52 pm
blacklist. it is on a web with site. it says it will go after moderate centrists conservative democrats like texas' henry cuellar. kelsey he sits in one of the safe heft house democrat seats. he had it more than two decades. what is going on here? >> the party of tolerance no longer tolerates different perspectives in their party. this says a lot where the democrat party right now. they're being hijacked by the more radical socialist wing of their party, to the point there is no such thing as a moderate democrat anymore, if there is they no longer have a voice, they no longer -- liz: like apologize. joe biden has to apologize for anything? >> they don't get interviews and media attention like more radical members like places like cnn and msnbc. if that is the direction they want to take the party that will come at massive cost. liz: kelsey, thank you so much. >> thank you.
