>> dana: hello. i'm dana perino with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, eric bolling, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ >> dana: our friend senate majority leader harry reid is taking well-deserved heat after tying the tragic accident that killed marines in his home state to the sequester. >> it's important we continue training our military. one thing in sequester we cut back in training and maintenance. it's just not appropriate,
mr. president, that the military can't train and do the things that are necessary. the men and women of marine were trained. with the sequester it will cut this stuff back. >> dana: today, names and pictures of three of the seven marines killed were released. josh martino. roger bushnick and josh taylor. the names of the other will be released tonight after military does what it needs to do to inform the families. andrea, i want to go to you first. imagine being reid's spokesperson so say the sound bite did not happen. to say he was trying to tie the tragic don't the sequeste sequester. >> andrea: he said crazy things in the past.
he said there wasn't a jobs bill then men would stay at hope and drink beer and beat their wives. it wonder if based on his comments are we supposed to deduce because he refused to bring a senate bill to the floor that would cut back on the military cuts and he refused to adopt house replacement bills to decipher the cuts and because obama and the democrats arrange the cuts to affect the military in the most severe ways that harry reid caused the murders? >> dana: andrea, andrea, andrea, that is just too logical and make sense to be true. and allen west thinks it's not good enough for the read office to say that it was absurd and unsubstantiateed. he thinks apology is needed. this is despicable. it's time that the american people demand more and have
reid held accountable for the statement he made. to impugn the training of the marine corps to make the point is horrific. >> a marine official told fox news i don't how they link the accident to budget cuts because it wouldn't cause marines to operate in unsafe positions. >> he opponented out it was preplanned, prior to sequestration. anything that goes wrong in the economy, accident, tragic accident like this, paint it like sequestration. for some reason, it's the republicans' fault, somehow, trying to make the link. look to the usda, e-mails or the national park, this is cheap political props. on the back of marines pretty ticked off.
>> dana: i was going to ask a media angle of this. harry reid says stuff in the past. when you say this on the floor, the media ignores it and brushes it off. whereas if it's a republican it would be -- >> greg: the definition of insanity is expecting sanity from harry reid. it's your own fault. to expect anything commonsensical from him. can we talk about how he sounds? he has the voice of horse lubery can't. can't -- lubricant. >> dana: how do you know? >> greg: it's metaphor. it spent time on the farm. doesn't he realize, he is insane. that he realizes that he is shooting in his own tent. obama owns the sequestion ration. he has become the attack dog so rabid his handlers aren't safe.
we give you the job of defending harry reid. >> greg: toughest job in world. >> bob: top official at the pentagon came out and said reid did not mean to suggest that there was something about sequestions ration that caused this particular death. having said that, the timing could haven't been worse. he finds a way to get in these situations and then spend two or three news cycles to get out. sequestions ration is beginning to impact on places around the country. with focus on this, and this exacerbates it. democrats make hey out of it. there are people laid off jobs, airports being shut down. things that are going on. reid i think probably should have, particularly given that this is his home state, probably should have separated the two out by some distance. >> dana: he might be the loneliest start. we talk about the democrat majority leader harry reid told dianne feinstein her
assault weapons bill won't make it to the floor. part of the comprehensive bill. michael moore has had something to say. listen. >> if a man with an assault weapon goes in the school where harry reid's grandchildren go to school and his grandchildren, would he stand in front of that microphone at 5:00 and say, "i know how diane had to witness the mayor getting murdered. miff grandchildren just got killed today, but, you know, we can't get it passed because we don't have the votes." >> dana: do you find it delicious, intrafighting. >> greg: michael moore on with piers morgan the least appealing couple since udai and kusai. michael moore was on larry king ages ago and said he doesn't need a gun because he has security. think about that. i don't need a gun because i'm
surrounded by people with guns but you can't have one either. i don't drive, i don't think you should drive. but i have a chauffeur. in this case, he is an idiot that it's hard to believe. >> dana: i found something hard to believe as well. >> greg: unicorns. >> dana: today, the chief of staff for the white house, dennis mcdonough was on another program, cnn, where he said the white house, we still expect a vote on the assault weapons bill. we want it to pass. is this possible that they didn't have this all worked out with harry reid to stop the bleeding? harry reid says to save the democrats from themselves. to me, i felt like the obama white house would have at least been in on it. dianne feinstein doesn't think so. >> andrea: i think the white house knew from the get-go this did not have the muster to pass the senate. if i could comment on mighter
moore. i -- michael moore. it hate to diagnose liberal logic but isn't he saying if your relative was killed bay car, you should want all cars banned, i guess? are we supposed to ban cars? it doesn't make much sense. assault weapons ban was done for political reason and it makes harry reid look like this moderate and gets all the democrats didn't want it cover. they can look like they are voting against it now. on an amendment. separately for it. it's basically a two-fer but in a political way for them. to answer your question, it took me a while, but i think that they had this -- >> dana: i was surprised. >> bob: this is pure and simple harry reid projecting his majority. harry reid will do anything necessary to keep his job. he has six democratic senators out for re-election from very difficult states weapons bans an the clips. assault weapons been a
gives -- assault weapon ban gives everyone a chance to vote on. it but the clips i bet they pass. >> dana: for those who support the second amendment and don't want to see the rights eroded because of a ill, mentally disturbed person who committed murder. the background check bill is bad. what are you hearing? >> eric: for that portion of gun control the other part is let's crack down on illegal traffics in place. i don't think either one of the clips and the assault weapons ban will pass. i predicted harry reid wouldn't get it on a bill on the senate floor. he has to raise his hand and he is last person to vote on
that. there are 11 senators that don't want to jeopardize that. he would lose. he would lose either one of those. >> bob: he would lose on clips. >> it'd make a wager that both amendment fail. >> greg: i hate to use the phrase bigger story, because i banned that. this is what happens when you create law based on crisis rather than reason. the progress is crazy people. that's displace by the left stereotypes. they made it about rednecks instead of irrationals. that's where we ended up. they were convinced that -- white guy in south with guns. that is what they are going after. it's me tally ill. >> bob: if you read the bill on background checks it focuses on people with mental
problems. that is a place to amend it. we know it will pass. who is against background checks? >> dana: i read today charles cook went line by linep through the schumer background check bill. even for me, i thought it was going a step too far for gun owners. >> andrea: this is interesting how the ideology stops when politics comes to play. scared to lose their job. >> dana: i don't think this is on easter break. the media is focused on trip in the middle east. >> eric: if either of the amendment pass come and shoot with me at the shooting range? >> bob: yes. >> greg: i'm for a ban but
self-imposed prohibition that media enact that influence other rare tragedies. norway influencing sandy hook. fastest way to mortality is do something horrible. self-imposed. >> dana: we'll have a grand day out. one of the two. >> dana: coming up -- i'm going to tease. there is a stunning admission from the director of immigration and custom enforcement of the release of more than 2,000 illegal immigrants over the sequester. many of them, guess what? repeat felons. reckless politically motivated decision? we'll discussion. ♪ ♪ [ engine revving ]

cut. many have records and they grilled them about it yesterday on the hill. >> did you release recidivist drunk drivers? >> we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> congress has not provided that a d.u.i. is a ground of removal. most misdemeanors are not ground of removal. i can't order you removed for committing a d.u.i. >> you can request progress mattic rescheduling to move money around. you could have found $600 to keep the level one violators being released. don't act like you could not have. >> andrea: thousands released and many criminals. now forced to explain the decision. but we know that they have
released them. tell the world what you said before the commercial break. it's politically tone deaf. >> this has been going on a long time. most, vast majority of the people are not people with criminal records. the decisions were made at the bureaucratic level. but this is under their watch. this is what they take the heat. this gets back to the implication of the sequestration are felt in serious places. there are serious implication we shouldn't gloss over. >> andrea: this isn't because of the sequestion ration. they have changed the eckcuse. it's budget reason or policy. own up. if the policy is let them go, they need to say we are letting them go because it's a new policy. not because of the budget. they have $100 million in
unincumbered fund. >> we didn't make this up. this isn't come up poof out of thin air. the illegal immigrants were let go, the day of or the day prior to sequestion trace. it was janet napolitano that mentioned it in one of the discussions about the effects of sequestions ration. she mentioned it. it's not like we made it up. it may have been going on for a while. they tie the illegals they let go to sequestration. randy forbes is on that committee also and he and trey gazzi did a great job to drill the director they didn't need to release them. >> bob: i.c.e. is subject to millions of sequestions ration. >> andrea: i.c.e. was given more money for detention than requested. they had plenty of money.
>> eric: you mentioned political benefit in the first block. there is one now for president obama as well. there could be pain, even if it's prepain about the sequester. >> dana: a large constituency of the order who want them to stop deportation after the latter half of the bush administration. they were coming down for him. to let them go, it releasedleasd the pressure from that. in some ways the white house is willing to tais the heat. >> andrea: weird they would take the heat when they push for immigration reform. this thing doesn't help the case at all. >> greg: obama's governing reason is petulance. he like a sulking kid that won't come out because mom and dad took away the ipod.
tall sequestions ration consequences are all in places that actually -- sequestration consequences hurt us and they don't have. we read about the programs. there is a program sponsoring duck mating habits. i won't get into it because it's graphic. but so much money and it's happening in places that the criminal criminals were investigated for human trafficking. maybe this is a new trade agreement between you and the mexico. fast and furious. >> bob: every 24 hours, 1400 illegals are exported back to their country. more than any other administration. >> andrea: bob, when you have a good fact like that, which you said repeatedly, doesn't it negate the positive action they take when releasing illegals? >> bob: i told you it was politically tone deaf. is it. but it covers up a very important point. which is they are doing their
maximum that budget allows them to send back every single day 1400. >> dana: they use the stat that bob used. when the election was over, they walked it back. >> bob: they didn't walk it back. 1400 still go -- >> dana: they stop talking about it. >> eric: i tell you what will happen. with the rhetoric on the right, the senators who want to run for president or allegedly want to run for president now offering ideas for immigration reform and pathway to citizenship you have influx of illegals coming to the country. they will take a five-year back. let's send them back. >> bob: you will have an immigration bill for sure. >> i hope we do. >> i hope it doesn't include pathway to citizenship. pathway to legalization not to
citizenship. >> andrea: we are getting in the second topic. the position on immigration will be tough, because hispanics will not migrate to the republican party. we debated that yesterday. up next on "the five," eric has breath-taking new developments in jodie arias murder trial and details how hollywood is hoping to cash in on it. later, a lot of men would like to spend the night with kate upton. a brave teenager may get the chance. the lucky guy and the proposal that caught her attention up next. what's droid-smart ? with google now, it automatically knows when you need to leave for the airport, how much traffic there is, and can have your boarding pass ready. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola.
