12:00 pm
brew dog offers for employees. >> don't worry, they still offer maternity and paternity leave for those having two-legged creatures. that's it for us. here's bill. >> thank you. two of the cabinet secretaries heading to mexico today for what could be an interesting sit-down with the mexican president. it comes a day after how america will detain and deport illegal immigrants. the mexicans are sending a warning how it may go. and cpac is the biggest event of the year for conservative politics. we'll talk about where the nation is headed and what comes next. plus, we're watching the mess out west. flood waters in california covering roads and forcing thousands to get higher ground. that is ahead.
12:01 pm
big hour straight ahead right now. >> i'm bill hemmer in for shepard smith. president trump has a phenomenal relationship with mexico despite his promise to make it pay for a border wall. his calls to renegotiate nafta and cracking down on illegal immigration. two of the president's top cabinet members head to mexico. rex tillerson and john kelly set to arrive today to meet with the mexican president and other top officials. mexico's foreign minister has said the country will not accept president trump's new immigration rules and they will be the main topic of the talks. he also says mexico will not hesitate to ask the u.n. to defend immigrants against the proposals. some analysts say president trump's rhetoric and tough stance on immigration and trade have restrained relations with
12:02 pm
mexico. last month, the president cancelled a trip to washington to meet with president trump after the back and forth over the wall and who will pay for it. the two leaders had a call that got testy. the associated press obtaining a transcript saying the u.s. was ready to send troops into mexico to fight drug cartels. mexican officials denied president trump's comments were threatening and the white house said they were light-hearted. in fact yesterday mexico's economic minister says if the u.s. pulls out of nafta, it could affect all levels of cooperation including immigration. under the president's new rules, all of the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally could face deportation for minor
12:03 pm
offenses. american prosecutors may slap criminal charges against more people that cross the border illegally. now, homeland security officials say the crackdown will not affect immigrants that came to the u.s. illegally as children. they fall under president obama's executive order protecting so-called dreamers. got all that? john roberts is at the white house. good day to you. let's start with where we are at the moment, john, on all of this based on the briefing from 90 minutes ago. >> it's clear that sean spicer said the relationship with mexico is phenomenal. there's many points of disagreement here. mexico does not want to take back people to its country that did not originate from mexico, although many of the central american immigrants came up through their border. all of that a matter of discussion for the diplomat. homeland security, the defense department. everybody will be involved in
12:04 pm
this. the president wants to get underway with improved border protection and apprehending criminal illegal aliens. the white house saying yesterday, we're targeting the criminal illegal aliens here. we're not after the millions of people in the country illegally. their disposition to be determined some time later. the president did say on the campaign trail after saying everybody would have to leave, most will get a chance to stay. the next shoe to drop, the newly written executive order, the immigration ban. that could come out in the morning. similar to the original executive order in that it targets the same seven countries. let's put them on the screen. we're talking about iraq, iran, syria, libya, sudan, somalia and yemen. those are countries identified by the obama administration as potentially being problematic in terms of accepting people,
12:05 pm
migrants from there. the new order will again initiate a temporary suspension on all refugee entries into the united states. i'm told it will do away with the language of an indefinite suspension of refugees from syria. they won't specifically single that group of people out. it will also carve out exceptions for people that are legal permanent residents of this country and other types of visa holders. this executive order will have explicit language that pertains to the driving thrust of the original executive order, was to bar access to this country, people who do not have previous status in the united states who are currently overseas. here's what sean spicer said about it this afternoon. >> the president was very clear in his executive order that these were countries that we didn't have the proper vetting for when it came to ensuring the safety of americans. that's what the executive order said. the authority is clear to have done it and you'll see the
12:06 pm
president take the steps necessary to protect this country. >> i'm told this could be signed friday. i'm also being told, they're still working with the language and could potentially get pushed back until monday. >> so what about the reports the white house is battling with the cabinet picks over staffing? what is the truth in that? >> we first heard about this a few weeks ago with general mattis at the pentagon potentially not being happy about the white house is micro managing the selection of the cabinet staffing. there was no disagree. there were reports that some of the other cabinet secretaries that the white house has their fingers in the pie and slowing things down. the partnership for public policy said only 14 of 549 positions in these agencies that require confirmation have been filled. the white house reminded today these are political appointments and they want to make sure they have the right people in those
12:07 pm
places. listen. >> to what degree does the white house think that it should impose its hiring approvals on members of the subcabinet and is some of this partially driven by cabinet secretaries wanting to avenue point people that might not necessarily be aligned with the president's think something. >> they're called political appointees for a reason. the idea is that people that come into the government should want to support and enact the president's agenda that he campaigned on. >> in response to another question, spicer said yes, the president trusts the cabinet secretaries to make the right hiring decisions but the white house wants to be sure. >> also, the white house will release guidelines on public rest rooms. what's up with that? >> it's not public rest rooms. the obama administration issued an order that when it comes to
12:08 pm
trans-gender individuals, they should use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. this is the subject of a supreme court case that comes up next month. the trump administration wants it's known that it does not believe that this should be a federal issue. this should be a state's rights issue and therefore they're likely this afternoon to rescind that guidance and send the letter out to all of the schools across america to say the obama area guidance, we don't support that and we want it back to the way it was. here's what spicer said. >> the president, as i said yesterday, is a firm believer in state's rights. when you look at the guidance that was issued under the obama administration, let's remember to the best of my knowledge, that was stalled. never fully implemented. there was various reasons for that. several legal reasons and several procedural reasons. so the department of education, the department of justice both who jointly issued that guidance in the obama administration are now working together again under
12:09 pm
a trump administration. >> there were some reports that the secretary of education, betsy devos was in opposition to changing the policy that put her at odds with the attorney general, jeff sessions. we're told this afternoon not the back story of how she came around to this way of thinking but the fact that she's now 100% on board with the idea of rescinding that policy. >> there's news on obama care. what is the schedule for repeal and replace? >> we heard from the president and it was in the interview with bill o'reilly prior to the super bowl this wouldn't get done till next year. look like it's gone from the back burner and is on a hot boil. listen to what the president said a short time ago. >> healthcare is moving along nicely. it's being put into final forms. as you know, before we do the tax, which is actually very well-finalized, but we can't submit it until the healthcare statutorily or otherwise. so we're doing the healthcare. moving very well. sometime during the month of
12:10 pm
march, maybe mid to early march, we'll be submitting something i think people will be impressed by. >> mid to early march. three, maybe four weeks from now. so bill, they do really need to get this on the front burner because repealing and replacing obamacare is a huge lift and we still don't know what the plan is. >> busy day, huh, john? >> as always. >> thanks very much. john roberts from the north lawn. and mike pence speaking out of hate and prejudice talking about vandalism in a jewish community center in st. louis. the president made the comments while appearing at an event in st. louis with missouri's governor. this comes after critics accused president trump of being slow to respond to the threats have seen in the jewish community. the president did speak out against the threats and all bigotry yesterday. here's what the vice president said in missouri. >> it's been inspiring to people across this country to see the
12:11 pm
way the people of missouri have rallied around the jewish community with compassion and support. you have inspired this nation. >> so police say somebody over the weekend damaged as many as 200 grave stones in the cemetery. the jewish community centers reported receiving nearly a dozen bomb threats. that was the fourth wave of threats against jewish centers so far this year. we'll watch that. we'll hear more on the trump administration's trip to mexico and what will come from that. we have a great panel to talk about it in a moment. plus, a bit of a rough reception for republican lawmakers. they're home on break and meeting with constituents. some of them are not happy. the exchanges and jabs with protesters. we'll show you the more spirited moments and why this is happening in a moment coming up here when we continue.
12:12 pm
12:13 pm
12:14 pm
>> bill: a moment ago, john roberts setting the table for us. michael tobin, president of tobin strategies and brian morganstern. thanks for beinger here. i was thinking about cleveland and mid july and a candidate saying i'm your law and order president. i'm thinking about a president now a week or two ago that people say they think i'm
12:15 pm
kidding. i don't kid. here we are. >> this is a campaign full of wwe rallies where the chant was build that wall. he was not messing around. the homeland security directors are coming out implementing these new measures. shouldn't be a surprise. but the challenges he faces are a surprise to him and his administration. because enforcing the laws are difficult. we don't have immigration judges or detention facilities. some of these countries won't accept immigrants back in. it's easier said than done but he's taking the steps within his executive authority. >> bill: michael, is the sky falling? >> he's done everything he said he was going to do. the chattering classes and detractors took him literally but not seriously. turns out, we have to take him literally and seriously. he's going to pursue everything he said he would.
12:16 pm
from my side of things and my former boss, senator schumer in the senate and my congressman growing up, the tactic and the questions how to oppose this, how to modify it, how to make it work when there's seats coming up and everybody is back in their district getting an earful. >> bill: is the sky falling or not? >> a little bit. i'm not going to say entirely but in some areas they are. >> bill: when you talk about implementation of this, it's been cast in a way of the past 24 hours as a whole new system on immigration where the others have considered it just an enforcement of the laws that have already been on the books. now, how do you make that message stick after eight years of what republicans argued was not an enforceable policy? >> it's a clear distinction of what president obama did, take classes of people and say i'm not going to make you who are otherwise eligible for
12:17 pm
deportation. my administration, now you're not. this administration is saying we're prioritizing violent criminals and others, but if you're otherwise eligible for deportation, you're still under my administration. that's the key. >> is that constellation for you when you consider the dreamers are left out of this? >> a great question. has to be. i take some consolation in that it's actual not able to deport everybody without delve stating our agricultural business, social services business, everything from custodial to construction. especially the dreamers. if they deport everybody that is eligible for deportation, this country will grind to a halt. >> bill: how much is this just an overall message to central american countries that it's not -- we're not playing be i the same rules anymore. >> it's part of it. >> and creating -- part of the reason we saw such an influx in unaccompanied minors during the obama administration is because he basically opened the door and
12:18 pm
said come on in. this president -- >> bill: "he" being president obama. >> that's unfair. there's extreme violence in central america. they came through mexico. >> and president obama started the daca program and incentivized more to come and this president is changing the tone. >> bill: the point is they had passage. >> it's the issue. it'scomplicated. we see this is an international issue, a slow migrants from syria, spain, the rest of europe and that came through the brexit vote. to say this is uniquely an american problem does it a disservice. >> it's not uniquely american. but the folks coming from latin american mostly who are coming in to america for jobs, for money, for security and in europe it's more from the
12:19 pm
war-torn middle east. so in that sense, it's a little different. to bill's point, in changing the tone of saying hey, everybody come on in to hang on a second, we're going to enforce the laws is a big shift. >> bill: one more point. >> again, it's a vastly complicated issue. it's not true that the obama administration said come on in. what they said was there's some groups that we're not going to deport. >> bill: if president trump gets everything he's looking for, do you think america changes fu fundament fundamentally, dramatically or not? >> i don't think it's un-america or changing america to prioritize americans over people that are not americans. >> i'd say that is distinctly un-american. a 180 from your point on that. >> bill: you think these policies change the country? >> they change the tone of the country and what it means to the rest of the world to be american. we are, whether or not it was come on in or not, we've always been a refuge for those in need
12:20 pm
and those in trouble and we have prospered because of that. to the rest of the world, it's us turning away and becoming a global solution for the world and being a world leader. it changes nor the worse. >> we can't be a beacon for security and prosperity if we don't have any sort of national identity, borders or security. it's striking a balance. as the president said, tugging the heart strings, striking a balance -- >> bill: he's fulfilling campaign promises and it's un-american. >> bill: voters have been giving lawsuit makers an earful about the policies, the trump administration. president trump claims "the so-called angry crowds are planned out by liberal activists." a live report on that in just a moment. the biggest event of the year for conservatives kicking off today. president trump will be the first sitting commandner chief
12:21 pm
to speak at the conservative political action conference since ronald reagan. dent know that! that's not the only way president trump is shaking things up at cpac. find out next when we continue. risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but whatever trail i take, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus had less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines.
12:22 pm
tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. ask your doctor about eliquis. we asked people to write down the things they love to do most on these balloons. travel with my daughter. roller derby. ♪ now give up half of 'em. do i have to? this is a tough financial choice we could face when we retire.
12:23 pm
but, if we start saving even just 1% more of our annual income... we could keep doing all the things we love. prudential. bring your challenges.
12:24 pm
>> bill: republican lawmakers getting an earful at town hall meetings across the country like this. you know that congress is on break and this is the sort of welcome home that some republicans have been receiving from constituents. yesterday overflow crowds packed some spots to booing and chanting and holding up of protest signs. many demanding answers about where they stand on immigration, obamacare and the white house. among the targets, senate
12:25 pm
majority leader mitch mcconnell in his district. >> if you can answer any of that, i'll sit down and shut up like elizabeth warren. >> bill: that's how it went. some republicans have defended the protesters calling them fellow americans with legitimate concerns. senator mcconnell said he's fine with the protests as long as they're peaceful. trace gallagher on that news. take us through some of the town halls that we've been watching. >> voter anger is a double edged sword. in 2014, david bratt rode that anger to a historic victory over eric cantor. last night at a crowded restaurant, it was bratt feeling the heat. he fielded angry questions about an hour and loudly heckled and booed when he defended president trump's policies on healthcare and immigration.
12:26 pm
it appears tom mcclintock is no quicker. days after being escorted by police out of a rough and tumble town hall meeting, mcclintock was back at it facing angry protesters and despite the shouts and jeers, he said he's against sanctuary cities and repealing and replacing obamacare. and marsha blackburn got hit with angry questions and loudly booed when she said steve bannon didn't replace anyone on the national security count tribal. betsy devos would make a fine secretary of education and taxpayer money shouldn't go towards planned parenthood. afterwards, she said everyone's voice is important. other gop lawmakers have said best way to fix the town halls is to not hold them. >> bill: what is the white house saying about it? >> the white house is fighting
12:27 pm
back by pointing out that some of the outrage is manufactured by democratic activists using the town halls as the type of rallying point. the president tweeting and saying, "the so-called angry crowds in the districts of some republicans are planned out by liberal activists. sad." and sean spicer said this. watch. >> there's a hybrid there. i think some people are clearly upset. there's a bit of professional protester, manufactured base in there. >> some gop lawmakers are trying to avoid the angry crowds by hosting virtual town halls in the form of roundtable discussions, facebook chats and conference calls that can be easily controlled. bill? >> bill: thanks, trace. trace gallagher from the west coast. cpac starts today meeting thousands of voters and activists and elected officials.
12:28 pm
the biggest conservative political event of the year. this year certainly will be different. president trump will address the crowd friday morning. last year he cancelled his cpac appearance after conservatived threatened to walk out. trump's team denied that was the reason claiming back then he dropped out to campaign in the primaries. also on the schedule speaking this year, some of the controversial cabinet picks, betsy devos and the epa administrator scott pruitt will be there. chief strategist steve bannon. he's from breitbart that has a bigger role at cpac this year. and byron york will be there. how are you doing, byron? good afternoon. >> hi, bill. doing well. >> bill: so this will be different and new. what is your expectation with the president's appearance this week? >> well, he will be well-received. you mentioned earlier, donald trump is the first sitting republican president to appear
12:29 pm
since ronald reagan. the two bushes, george h.w. and george w. bush declined to go to cpac. latest polls we've seen on president trump, anywhere from about 83 to 87% approval among republicans. that's a good number for him. this is the republican base. now, they all talk about how they're conservative and that is not necessarily republican, but that pretty much works out to be being republican. >> bill: so what do you believe is the reception on that hardcore group of conservatives that have not been as warm, let's say? >> that's a good point. there's a group of conservatives that have state in the never trump mode. simply not reconcile themselves to the election of president trump. not a very big number. perhaps a few will be vocal. i doubt that. i think instead you'll probably
12:30 pm
see a pretty enthusiastic reaction. would be very surprised to see anything noisy against the president. >> bill: that's interesting. you wonder what the level of tension will be or if the temperature in the room comes down. >> it will be really interesting in part to see how young conservatives react to the president. cpac, 10, 12,000 people will attend. 40 to 50% are college students. so it's going to be very interesting to see how young conservatives actually react to the president. he's polling well with them, as a matter of fact. so here again, my guess is that cpac won't be a place where the conservative movement acts out its differences. and there are differences with president trump. >> bill: you characterize it as the trumpization of cpac. another question about chuck schumer what is the news about him today and what are you reporting on that byron?
12:31 pm
>> senator schumer says that republicans, his colleagues in the senate, have told him privately that they might abandon the president by summertime. i guess the reasonable question to ask there is you know, when republicans decide to reveal their deepest secret feelings, do they do it to senator schumer? not clear. we know that when the president actually puts forward a legislative agenda on healthcare, on taxes, on immigration, there's going to be differences with republicans. the idea of there being some sort of stampede away from the president in his first year strikes me as pretty unlikely unless something really big happens that we don't know about right now. >> i think it's interesting. to follow the schedule, look at mitch mcconnell's press conference before he left washington last week. >> thank you, bill. >> bill: and we'll see the
12:32 pm
president friday. during america's newsroom. see you, byron. thank you. the head of one of the largest health insurance companies in the country saying obamacare is in a death spiral. another big insurance says they're dropping out next year. what does that mean for americans caught in the middle? congress tries to come up with that replacement plan. that's coming up inside fox news desk.
12:33 pm
12:34 pm
>> bill: more headlines from the fox news desk. police in indiana hunt the killer of two teenage girls. turns out one victim reported a suspect's voice on the phone. police said an audio reporting caught someone said "down the hill." police found a photo showing a man near the send. the bodies turned up last week northwest of indianapolis. a space ship forced to change course due to a gps error
12:35 pm
earlier today. an engineer calculated the problem and it rerouted on its own. scientists say they will try again tomorrow to dock with the space station. and a marine in houston saving a dog that was stuck in the drain. animal rescue workers took the dog and trying to find it a happy home. the news continues after this.
12:36 pm
12:37 pm
>> bill: some health insurance companies are making changes as congress works to repeal and replace the affordable care act. the head of aetna says that obamacare is in a death spiral. the ceo said that president obama's health care law is filing because high prices are driving away healthy adults that cause premiums to sky rocket. the company dropped out of some state health exchanges earlier this year. humana announced they're
12:38 pm
quitting all of obama exchanges starting next year. peter doocy is on that live today. why are some exchanges -- why do the executives say they're uncertain about their future? what is going on there? >> sounds like it's the mystery of what comes after obamacare. we spoke to an expert that explained the ceos know what is in the affordable care act and how that law impacts their bottom lines. it's taken awhile for congress to re-assure them with whatever is next and that whatever is next is going to be better for their business. >> the first, i guess, advice is if you're in a hole, stop diggi digging. on the other hand, might be too overoptimistic to assume a ladder to get out of the hole without seeing more productive signs in terms of the legislation on capitol hill or other moves to stabilize that market. >> this afternoon at the white house, sean spicer tried to re-assure consumers that have
12:39 pm
seen their premiums rise that help is on the way. >> bill: peter, what are you hearing from the pro obamacare side? >> bill, they don't think ceos have reason to be worried for financial reasonables. any instabilities is being fueled by republican chatter about getting rid of the affordable care act. >> lots of uncertainty created by republicans threatening to repeal obamacare and other things. that uncertainty makes insurance companies nervous and they will withdraw. >> doctor emanuel was one of obamacare's architects and he admits that some changes to the law could be good like figuring out better ways to pay doctors and hospitals. he warned us today that it would be a disaster, he thinks, if republicans wait too long between repealing the aca and replacing it. >> bill: thanks, peter. president trump's brand new national security advisor could have some sway if he wants to
12:40 pm
boot steve bannon off the national security council. that's the word from the white house today. >> the president has made clear to him, he has full authority to structure the national security team the way he wants. obviously it's something like that, he would come to the president and make that recommendation. the president would take that under high -- serious consideration. i don't want to go ahead with this person or that person or structure. >> so bannon, you know, is the president's chief strategist. has a lot of influence in the west wing. using to run breitbart. last month, president trump gave him a seat on the national security council, a role usually reserved for generals and leaders. general mcmasters took over after the resignation of michael flynn. mcmaster has not indicated what changes he would make. it's early. but john bussey is here from the "wall street journal." good day to you.
12:41 pm
you ran the bureau in washington d.c. what is true and what is not? what do you believe based on what we're reading and what is the truth is. >> yeah. rebecca has a piece in today's journal. so what happened? a number of candidates that said i want to shape my own staff on the national security council. there was push-back from the white house on that. uncertainty whether or not people would be able to do so. sean spicer said he's got full authority on the national security council. then he says he's welcome to take whatever recommendation he wishes to the president who will consider it. so is that 100% or not? the issue is, do you want a political person on the national security council who might have a different agenda? rightly so, as far as the president is concerned, which is how did these decisions on national security play into politics of the decision making, how will they play with the public and do you want the
12:42 pm
national security council just to be the diplomats and the military people thinking purely national security policy. >> bill: it's an excellent point. is the nsc always made up of military personnel? >> that's the tradition here. you've had people cycle in and cycle out of the meeting, the obama administration, george bush. they came in for a few of the sessions. but there has not been somebody that has had a permanent position on the top panel of the nsc the way steve bannon has. interesting. this is an interesting choice of mcmaster. trump must know this and the people around him must know this. this is a person that has written about the need for top military officials to speak back to civil leaders. he wrote a 1997 study on the vietnam war criticized military leaders for not speaking back to
12:43 pm
mcnamara, l.b.j., the president saying this was not a winnable war. so this is a person willing to go to trump and speak back to him if he feels politics -- >> bill: mcmasters has been met with rave reviews from everybody. >> both sides of the politics. both democrats and republicans. >> bill: thanks, john. thank you. somebody tried to break into the morgue holding the body of kim jong- jong-un's half brother. police are saying it looks more and more like north korea was behind his assassination. the new suspects they have identified. that story is next. ♪ the sun'll come out tomorrow... ♪ for people with heart failure, tomorrow is not a given. but entresto is a medicine that helps make more tomorrows possible. ♪ tomorrow, tomorrow... ♪ i love ya, tomorrow in the largest heart failure study ever. entresto helped more people stay alive and
