tv The O Reilly Factor FOX News April 20, 2017 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT
continue from jerusalem 10:00 p.m. eastern. my interview with the prime minster from israel benjamin netanyahu. we'll see you back here tomorrow from israel. thanks for being with us. >> thanks for watching us tonight. get to top stories. terror strikes heart of paris. gunman opens fire killing one police officer and seriously injuring two other. the suspect was shot dead by police following a foot chase. now isis is claiming responsibility for thehe attack which comes just days before francis first round of his presidential election. during news conference, president trump responded to the shooting. >> condolences from our country to the people of france again, it's happening it seems. i saw it as i was walking in. it's a terrible thing. i say very terrible thing that's
going on in the world today. it looks like another terrorist attack and what can you say? just never ends. we have to be strong and vigilant. >> joining us now with more from washington, catherine harris. we've seen thesech stories comep before. what's different about this one? >> dante we're getting a lot -- we're getting lot of information from the french police. individual was on the radar. they've identify him as 39-year-old from the suburbs of paris. someone indicated through telegram they wanted to kill police. it's very much a targeted killing based on the information that we have now. the suspect coming up to the police van and then opening fire with an automatic weapon. the claim from isis is significant. they offer nos evidence to back up the claim. what we don't know tonight
whether the claim was opportunistic by the terror group. whether this 39-year-old suspect traveled to iraq and syria. where they were inspired or directed through an encrypted app to carry out the attack >> they claim responsibility right away. we don't know if they did. the police were tracking him because of -- >> just for some contacts here, we have hundred of individuals who have interest to the fbi in this country. in france they have something called the s list. list of individuals suspected of being radicalized. this database has 10,000 names. it's impossible for the french
police to provide 24 hour surveillance to even 10% of these individuals. which is why the situation in that country is so severe now. >> do we know if the terrorist was a citizen of france? is he an immigrant? >> we don't know that yet. we know they're from the paris suburbs. you know from covering this issue,s these suburb suburbs arn populated by individuals who have dual citizenship. their french and of north africanth dissent. or legal permanent resident. they have right to live in france, though they are citizens of another country. >> anything about the particular target. they targeted the police officers. but alsot the location which was themb symbolic. >> going for an attack is really out the terrorist handbook. it's an economic target. it's an area that's frequented by tourist.
people who are coming outside of paris. itit has really significant economic impact. that captures my attention tonight, that's big bottom line for people at home. what we see in almost all of these attacks now is that the suspect is willing to die for whatever their cause or their motives or their message is. isis has been able to do something if in fact, it is isis inspired, that al qaeda was never able to do. they have been able to take suicide attacks and bring them into the mainstream. i have here some documents. these are graphs that are posted by isis every month. it's their body county of suicide attacks. they do a break down forhat, for guns and i.e.d.s and vehicle devices. i don't want to get ahead of ourselves to see what this guy's story is. let's see if he had formal
connection to isis and whether he was a foreign fighter who left france at some point, went oh -- went over to iraq or syria or radicalized. >> thank you so much. further analysis let's bring in erin cohen who join us from los angeles and jim hanson. you were pointing out the they had had ak47s as a weapon. >> couple of things. one you can't put an ak47 in your pocket. i originally some of the reports that were coming out, this could be a bank robbery or some kind of heist.om ak47 is a large saw style rifle. it's a large round. had 30 round magazine. you can't just flip it down your pants. you can, it will look funny. you need a bag. even if it's got a folding stock to put it in.
if you're toting around central powers with an ak47 style assault rifle, that's probably fully automatic, chances are, there's going to be a couple of red flag indicators >> jim i was going to ask you. open to get a sense of how big the problem is. terrorist lone wolfs embedded in france. on the s list that they have in paris, there tony thousand -- 10,000 names >> these horrifying to consider. i guess it's something they need to think about. why are all these people there? are they french citizens or migrants? some of p those people might wat to get a deportation order. patrick toole claimed the term lone wolf. the security services were aware of him. they knew who he was. they're watching him. potentially the standard for
what it takes to get a more severe punishment of some sort needs to be lowered. so they can stop these guys before they attack rather than another announcement that we knew this guy but we let him go. then he started killing people. >> do you think isis was responsible or claiming responsibility. do you think this was any way to sort of influence or impact the french national elections that happens in two weeks? >> i think isis was responsible. i think that isis entire movie is base -- motive is based on a propaganda system to recruit and entice and insight terror. europe seems to be the main gateway for being able to tap into these extreme religious pools of islamist. this is exactly what isis set out to do. three or four years ago with their play book. let's use the internet. the lone wolf, he's lone wolves
are part of the actual mosaic or the system of how terrorists are beingf systematically used to carry out attacks in europe. yes, i do think that isis is directly responsible for this. ire do believe that this was strategic in couple of days away from the president's le reduction -- reelection. it's great target. ak47 was used to directly attack lawse enforcement. which has beendi repeatedly stad by isis in their propaganda. it's terrorist through and through. france got to get tough and they got to start making sure that all of their police officers are armed and that they're trained to be able to shoot a terrorist and spot those threats before they produce that weapon in the middle of the streets. >> let me ask you both, jim, with you, this all unfolded right before the our president to have a press conference with the prime minster of italy about their discussions. he was asked about this issue.
he w commented right away. he said that it was an act of terror. i want you to look at what another network, msnbc, initial reaction from those journalist over there. listen. >> president trump said right off the bat to a question looks like another terrorist attack in france. weer have not been comfortable o call it that or report that. we'll have more reporting upcoming >> the coverage isg getting ahed of the facts. the president was referring i think what he was watching on television. you do wonder are people going to take what he said as some idea that he knows something more than what anybody else does. >> i understand the concern about getting ahead of the story. what's your reaction? >> it's absurd. msnbc is an apologist for the terrorist. it was a muslim with an, k47.
in of course it was terrorism. i think after eight years of obama saying, isis is not islamic andyi we can't know ther motive, that is a sign that at least our president now, our commander in chief, takes this seriously, knows who the enemy and is going to take the fight to them. i'm pretty middle easted with -- pretty pleased. >> other thing he said we're making progress in the fight against isis. would you agree? >> i think that's president trump is being quite aggressive. also, i will add to jim's point here, it's refreshing. donald trump might be a lot of things, he's not afraid to be aggressive. i can tell you after living in israel and serving in a counterterror unit that aggression is actually a tacticc when you're in a fight, especially in type of war where you got people dispersing into crowds whether it's in europe or syria or iraq oor middle east
you have to look at aggression as a tool. i think trump knows this. it is refreshing. i think that he is -- i know there's units being deployed as we speak now to afghanistan and back over in into iraq. he's getting significantly more tough and he's not dancing around with these terror groups. you can't because only thing they truly -- from experience, they understand it's fear. i know that jim will agree with me on that one >> thank you so much. when we come back, the trump presidency ready to hit its first 100 days. how report card so far? we'll have it next.
concerned, we are in very good shape. we're building our military rapidly. lot of things have happened over of time.short period we have been here for approximately 91 days, we are doing a lot of work, we we're in very good position. >> dana: joining us now from dallas, katrina pearson and from washington -- the first hundred 1 days i feel like have gone by very fast. politico had a report card for the president. republicans generally give him high marks in the democrats don't. the top subjects for him, fighting terrorism, jobs and the economy, the worst subjects, healthcare, climate change and draining the swamp. >> there's going to be criticism really no matter who you ask depending on what the top
priorities are. this president made promises to the american people. he is keeping them. whether you want toeo talk to ce miner or keystone pipeline. he's inde process of defunding sanctuary cities and blocking environmentall factors that have been hurting small businesses. this is a win for president trump. ly say what i have said all along the campaign trail. people are going to have to be comfortable beingng uncomfortab. this president is unpredictable. he has a goal. >> i remember, earlier on, we have to embrace the chaos. >> one of the things that i think is hard to show as an accomplishment when you're a republican it comes in, maybe a democrat to a republican, you trying to undo something. like regulations. it's not something that's will get big e splashy headlines. there's a work that has been
done. >> it's easier work to do. you can come in and you can roll back some regulations from the previous administration. the previous administration clearly threw a bunch of stuff at the wall. knowing full well that it would probably comee down at at the ed of the day. i'm ae good republican. i'm not going to give this president a failing grade yet. one of g the things that does concern me and lowers his grade is his inability to stay focused on his agenda. he got an a for his agenda during the campaign. jobs and the economy and getting america back on its feet. but since then, there's been distractions, there's been defeats, there's been scandals. this swamp that we call washington d.c., is a very complex place to navigate. he has yet to master how to pull the lives of -- levers of power.
>> to be fair, some of those distractions are very much orchestrated by the left. there are a bunch of obama hold overs with their activism at their bench. we're talking about the first 100 days for crying out loud. we did not get in this mess in 100 days. we will not get out in 100 days. the president has to deal with foreign issues. >> the mess clean up the mess. president bush said the same thing about president clinton. i want to ask you. hundred days is important benchmark. interesting to me, the president is able to see a new supreme court justice in the first 100 days. everyone said, he can do that. that's h huge. that will have lasting impact. the healthcare bill, that failure itca shows up in the pol afterur poll, people think thiss not good. katrina they're going to vote on
another bill by wednesday. do you think that's possible? >> i think it is possible. we've already heard that leaders from the two other factions in the party have been meeting to come up with a compromise. republicans should be coming together at this point. we shouldn't be here today as president trump is being sworn into office and republicans not have a bill ready to go. this is a congressional issue. the president has been leading on this issue. i fully suspect it can be done. >> what about w you terry? the president gets high marks for the prospect of tax reform. he needs healthcare reform before taxca reform. >> he's promised the american people jobs and lower taxes and w. of ther things you heard today in his comments tonight. he's doing things very fast and rapidly. things like healthcare reform or tax reform or infrastructure reform, those things require a lot of time a lot of effort and
a lot of leadership. undistracted leadership where the president puts his full -- the weight of the presidency behind an organized effort to buildan coalition to communicate clearly with the american people and to find a working majority in the congress. the congress is a tough place ti work and so far, that fraction relationship has been something that lowered the president's grade. >> one of the things that has to happen, they have to pass this funding bill and katrina, there was a report today that said that nick mulvaney is saying, that the border funding must be in or they are willing to try to go all the way to shut down the government. what's interesting to me abouto that,at i know that's a presidential priority. he does show flexibility. a poll that we showcased last night on the show, it was only 38% of people thought that the wall was worth doing.
do you really think it's worth pushing this up to the line to shut down the government?in that does not work out well for republicans or democrat. >> i think it works out well when if historical election. we had blue states that turned red for crying out loud on this president's agenda. it's extremely important to get passed. i will say that this president has had more meeting and more conversations with people from all cross of the the aisle. unlike any president in history. he is learning to navigate the congress. learning to navigate d.c. what's going to happen? all i will say is people need to be comfortable being uncomfortable. >> dana: terry, do you think they should shut down the government? >> we've been down that rabbit hole a few times. this time he should avoid it and getol on to the agenda. >> dana: there's no carrots in that rabbit hole. thank you so much. upg. next, why anti-trump mania
♪ >> dana: in the end result problem segment. democrats doing more than harm to presidentnt trump? some on hard left fear that democratic party strategies to stopea the administration may actually be sowing the seeds for future political triumph by the president. >> i'm a bernie sanders supporter i voted for jill stein. my feeling election occurred. we'll get reelection of the president and administration. that's what i feel now. >> do you feel like he's going to get reelected request.
>> yes. the democrats overplayed hair hand. >> you're betting on his reelection less than 100 days out? >> yes, what the democrats need to do and what the major media -- >> by that you need failing "new york times"? >> dana: this is called unresolved problem segment. let's see if we can solve some problems tonight. do you think that the democrats overplayed their hand in trying to say stop trump? >> i hope not. i do think first all, she's a jill stein voter. thanks a lot jill stein voter. there's multiple states where the margin of difference between -- >> dana: like wisconsin. >> that said. i do think she's right that oftengh times after you laws an
election, there's this not a civil war but there's this thing out, who's fault was it. >> dana: lot of democrats look like they're in shock. >> i don't disagree with that. i think they are in shock. they don't look like they are in shock.ha thatat said, donald trump is easy for the democrats to get together. you've seen it. you you'ved it on the republican side. you don't need to resolve all your differences. if there's some enemy unites everyone they really don't like, that brings them together. as i view it, if you pour some wine and some chicken broth in a glass, that doesn't taste good. if you heat that up over a fire for ten minutes, -- >> dana: i might drink that. i'm assuming child think that republicans overplayed their hand saying no to president obama? >> yes.
electorally, they played their hand obamall won handedly both time. i would say the republicans did a very good job if you go out to thejo states, turning the state legislature getting the governorships. i wonder are rules little different here. donald trump has never had this support of the major of america. he didn't get it on election day. on his hundredth day in office. he had lowest approval rating in the history of polling. i don't know that -- in a way these two things contradict each other. if you think that the democrats are doing so well that they're pushing back and they've overplayed, that's the opposite of the argument that the democrats can't agree on anything andnd they need to -- >> dana: what do you think will happen t next week? they're ready to vote on healthcare again? what do you think? >> that is the gift that keep on giving to the democrats. this thing is like the sun of
franfranken stein. i agree with that. if youar look at the new version of trumpcare, they're going to make it so that if you had a preexisting condition, your prices can go up. the estimate if you had breast cancer, i your premium will go p $28,000 a year. the thing is, that will never pass. even if by some miracle they can convince the house to pass that, it's a terrible idea. when it goes to the senate, the republicans in the senate will kill it. by some miracle theil republicas didn't kill it, the democrats would kill it. >> dana: they might dispute those numbers. mathma is not my best strength. when you said -- some points earlier today, you said that the democrats are very comfortable having their civil war. you guys are comfortable with it. i feel like republican rehash it
over and over again. do you think that democrats better job of republicans accepting differences of opinion? especially when you look at bernie sanders -- >> democratic party has no organization. there's old. will rogers line, i'm the member of no organized party. i'm a democrat. there is a certain tolerance for dissent. i think it's natural. if that upsets you, there's nothing you can do about it. democrats do disagree. they're pretty united. >> dana: i want to ask you about one of the things president trump talked about today. which is this very fight -- farmers up in the northern statesme are having with canada. he says that the canadians are being unreasonable. they need to get too the table. would g you agree? >> not really. this is the fifth of our five biggest trading partners that
he's threatening to trade war esth. if ewant to sit down with canada and mexico we can do that. the tpp actually was a renegotiation of nafta. we could agree on a bunch of the best parts of tpp. just going out and declaring -- >> dana: how about the infrastructure plan? >> infrastructure fine. >> dana: we can agree on that. i'm 1-9. >> that would be a good one. >> dana: thank you so much. next, mainstream media goes gaga for the democratic candidate in georgia's special election. bernie goldberg next on that.
against gop candidate karen handel in june. many of thebl in media is declaring victory for ossoff. >> he can take a lot of comfort 48.6 of the vote going to the democrat. >> the district is slotted to be republican. democrats had an emotional victory. >> dana: the white house t is nt taking carolina kind -- kindly to the coverage. >> the democrat went all in. they spent over $8.3 million, they said on the record, their goal was to win the race. they lost. the reaction has been that they almost won. no they lost. >> dana: joining you now to analyze from miami, bernie goldberg. do you think that the headlines for these stories were already
written before the election took place? >> yes. >> dana: i thought you might think so. >> to the extent that this race in georgia was an indication how popular donald trump is. in november it was a heavily republican district. he won by only one percentage point. in thise case, the democrat ran against a living republican who split the vote. we have no idea of how impressive the democratic candidate was the other day. we'll know more in june if the democrat wins, yes, this listen a repudiation of donald trump's popularity. fair enough. i have this funny feeling that if the democrat loses, it will still be played as a moral
victory because he came so close to winning. one way or the other, donald trump, as far as the media plays the story. donald trump is not going to come out the winner in this story. indana: if he were to win june, that will be a big story. the republican wins, of course it was a republican district. of course. >> exactly. judge let me ask you about study that was put out last night by the media research center. about the media's 100th day war against trump. apparently the negative coverage about 91% negative if the first 100iv days. >> well, i think there are two reasons for so much negative coverage. the first reason, donald trump most loyal supporters will not believe this, donald trump brings a lot of it on himself. give you one example. that survey said that 99% of the coverage was negative when he
talked about president obama wiretapping trump tower during the campaign. he's lucky it wasn't 100% negative because it isn't true. if it was true, he would have -- president trump would have provided the evidence by now. >> dana: in story actually turned into a multiweek story. that happened on a saturday morning, it's still is a headline. >> negative coverage isn't necessarily the same as bias coverage. that was negative. it was negative but i think legitimatellegitimately negativ. second reason is a lot less complex. lot of reporters don't like donaldrs trump. it isn't his policies. they don't like them either. ite isn't primarily his policie, it's him they don't like. they don't h like his style. they don't like the way he talks. they don'tay like his bragging. they don't like a bunch of things. that reflects in the negative
coverage. >> dana: you go back to when the days when you were working at cbs, is there another example where they didn't like a president and the coverage showed that? >> i was network correspondent for 28 years. what i did noticed there's a correct, i'm putting that word ins gigantic quotation marks, correctnt or acceptable position on allor sorts of issues. there was a correct position on race. you don't do negative stories on affirmative action. there's acceptable position on gender and abortion. we know what those are. now i think there's an acceptable, i want to make clear, putting the word in quotation marks, an acceptable or correct position on donald trump. that is he's a mistake. he doesn't belong in the white house.e. he's unfit. from that, close the negative
coverage and sense the "new york times" is the liable bible to the media, since the "new york times" is relentlessly negative on donald trump,nt that gives permission to the networks to be negative also. that reflects in that poll. the media research center did. >> dana: interesting that the democrats last week, she thinks that the t media was biased against democrats. is a matter of just where you sit? you feel like you're being attacked by the media? >> lot of it is. i give you a long answer. the short answer is yes. lot of it is. if you think -- if you were a big hillary clinton fan, you thought thereou was too much spt on her e-mail servers. if you were donald trump fan, you thought anything negative about donald trump was bias in that direction. you're right. >> dana: biases in the eye of the beholder. we have no bias. >> noto always.
♪ >> dana: thanks for staying >> dana: in the personal story segment. far left and trump derangement syndrome. senator elizabeth warren and pals on the view took things to the parody yesterday. what is going on with korea? kim jong-un they make no only -- they just make things bombs and stuff. what should be happening and why isn't itho happening? that he is an unstable man who has nuclear weapons. >> you talking about trump now?
[applause] >> about to deal with unstable man who has nuclear weapons. what can possibly go wrong? >> dana: president trump and kim jong-un are just as big as dangerous to o the world. joining us from st. louis to analyze ed l martin former chare of the missouri -- chairman of the missouri republican party. let me start with you ed, do you think that was funny? >> yes. i think it's comical, united states senator that wants to run for president. think she's very won't and she's doing something so odd. it'som funny in the sense that it's sad. elizabeth warren kind of takes things to the bottom. as long as she and the democrats doing things like that and yelling the russians. the american people are not distracted. the morning shes, did that, trup was in wisconsin saying buy america and hire american. >> dana: that's really good point. she is out there -- she has a
new book out. she's making the roundeds on all the televisions. do you think a comments like this hurt her or she trying to gin up support? >> in this environment, those comments don't hurt. look at our president, he made his name during the campaign calling elizabeth t warren pocahontas. he made his name attacking people and johnn mccain. this doesn't hurt. i think that's a sad commentary. i don't think it's funny. i don't think you should go on national television disparage the president any more than sitting president or candidate should disparage the senior senator from the state of massachusetts. they are both wrong. we need to elevate this kind of discussion. this is a very serious threat we're dealing with north korea. this kind of rhetoric doesn't help. she's on an entertainment show. >> dana: i understand a jill
bahar is a comedian. it gets little too close to the me. for i do worry about stability in america. things have changed and maybe we take that seal off and get it back on. >> well, i think geanie is right. i agree with her. the democrats and republicans denounce elizabeth warren. it's nuclear power. this isle the cuban missile crisis. let's beg clear, elizabeth warrn is shilling a book. she's on "the view" for one reason in not because reelection is up for grabs in massachusetts, these running for presidentec in 2020. the great news for republicans is that if democrats continue to put up people like warren and sanders, yell russians are coming and insult people and a laugh on "the view" out in the places, you grew up in colorado. out here where people, america heart of the country, we are not fooled. trump is on the side of the
people. these people in the swamp up there are making jokes on "the view." >> dana: it is interesting. i wonder if the democrats can continue to understand why they lost in the election. buy america hire american effort whole marketing campaign spoke to the example voters that came out to vote for him. they do have to have some self-reflection. they do have to move forward. i think they are trying to do that.re you know, i'm glad ed and i can agree neither the president nor the senior senator from the state ofth massachusetts, should be engaging s in this kind of rhetoric. the americanhi people, whether n the middle of the country deserve a lot better. you don't -- we should be focusing on the american public.
that's what democrat and republicanst do. bipartisan meeting of congress people to call pocahontas again. it's absolutely unfortunate. think we should -- >> dana: if i can put you both on the spot with theory. that's a book that came out tuesday. elizabeth warren's book. in january, i predicted that senator al franken would position hymn to try -- himself to try to run in 2020. elizabeth warren got a book out. guess who has a book coming out enday of may, al franken? do you think that's a possibility? >> for sure. the f democrats know there's no bench. hillary cleared the bench by not allowing the party to grow. it's wide open. paris thinks he'llll run for president. elizabeth warren and franken thinks they're good with the media. they're yuck it up.
trump is much more masterful than these guys at communicating to the working americans. >> dana: my prediction, al franken. >> i think al franken will run. you'll see andrew cuomo take a shot. >> dana: if that happens, i will be 3-3 on my predictions on new year's eve. better keepn watching. thank you very much. directly ahead it's the high holiday for marijuana users everywhere. new polling shows a remarkable shift on legalization. geraldo joins us with his thoughts next.
a holiday for marijuana enthusist. legalization is all time high. 61% of americans want it to be legalized. marijuana is turning into mull billionaire industry. it'sit not without downsides. joining us now to analyze is geraldo rivera. i would just say no kid. nancy reagan's program, just say no. iki was eight or nine. i believed it. if my brain were an egg, that would be my brain on drugs. i never did it. i'm trying to understand the case for legalization. >> you're one the few people in the building that has not tried pot. >> dana: in the country. >> i remember turning on my mom and dad at one point. the fact is that the vast
majority of people are in favor of the legalization. 88% of americans believe that medical marijuana should be appropriate. 61% think it should be legalized. it's spreading like wildfire. you mentioned the fastest growing business. it's the fastest growing business sector since dot-com. it's growing 25% a year. it's $7 billion, over $20 billion by the year 2021. it is fact of life. 26 states now have some kind of legalization, either medical marijuana or legalization. colorado, washington, oregon already legal, california, massachusetts, maine, nevada have passed laws that make it legal. it's spreading. it is inevitable. only fly in the ointment is the mixed signal from the trump administration. >> dana: a friend of mine live in colorado. my cousin is in the business.
apparently, i haves not been. i hear her place is fabulous. other friends of mine say that the rise in homelessness is taxing the system. there are way more pot related car accidents. they have this increase. kids in the hospital because of access to marijuana whether it be accidental or higher thd content. >> i have not seen relabel statistics to back up any of those negativee downsides. as with the end of alcohol prohibition, there's a time when people have to learn exactly when they get high. you never go to work high. >> dana: pot smoker should stot be jerks. maybe people be accepting. he's pro legalization. >> i have to say in the
attorney. for him to say that marijuana is only slightly less awful than heroin it's really so factually incorrect. inpeople to know that in the 1970s that was my decade, i was on the board of the national organization for the reform of marijuana law. >> dana: i bet you guys had great meetings. >> it was a very high functioning successful group all of use in our own way. what happened is, then you had aids, happened and cocaine happened and lot of other things. very seriously. the reagans game in and just say no. big adverse response to all drugs, pot got swept up. this evolution that i thought would happen much more rapidly was put off. now slowly, -- >> dana: are you little to share
about the ski industry? i thought that was interesting. >> i just came back. skiing, beautiful resort. you know it well. there are four big pot shops in town. they don't stick out. they're like the pubs. they're subtle. they are discreet. this is revitalizing the colorado ski industry. people aren't going to utah anymore. utah weree attracting lot of attention. now colorado who has been reinvigorated and aspen and places you knoww and love are nw because of this other aspect of it. the fact that it is legal and appropriate. >> dana: i'm trying to get there. >> you don't booze in public. it's the same adjustment that people have to put -- >> dana: chipping away at my opposition. thank you. coming upit next a judge who was
book eggment tonight, the ou >> dana: and the back of the book segment tonight, the outrage of the week. gonzalo curiel, the federal judge accused of bias by then candidate trump laster over his mexican heritage will seek a highly controversial case over a dreamer who was deported to mexico. joining is now with reaction, jeanine pirro. you don't think there should have been any sort of comment about the judges heritage, right? you've artie said that. speak out one of the things that you can't do, what you should into its right of the fact that we already have free speech is that criticize a judge because you never know when ano judge's name coming out of the wheel again and those random assignments. >> dana: you are nice to
everyone on your way out because you don't know who you meet on your way down. >> that's right. i remember when i was a judge that my name would be on the wheel and a then you get the random assignment at the wheel just stopped at that name. this is an example. i have to tell you this. i truly believe that a federal judge, even though whether he was fixed to handle those cases are not, is going to recognize that he's above all of this other stuff. he's going to dig deep into who he is and make a decision based upon that. >> dana: i feel like judges must have a camaraderie sort of like press secretaries do like you understand it's a tough job and you don't criticize each other and you try to look out for each other. >> you don't criticize each other, and you commiserate with each other, and you follow the law. it.et that's one of the reasons judges want to hang out together because you really can't be involved so much in the policies of what's going on in the world. you have to step away from it. >> dana: in this case, he is going to hear a very specific case as we talked about last night on the show about a previously protected dreamer who
was either deported or went to mexico and tried to sneak back and picked up again. there is a distinction, i think it was listened to by the judge, there also is this question about should dreamers have this full protected status?th or is there a line across if there is criminal activity? can they be deported? >> i think it's very clear that the laws are meant to be enforced, and that's one of the reasons thatth donald trump was elected. that's what people want. donald trump has kind of a long wind of general kelly, this is a tough issue. they came k here, they didn't ak to come here, they came here. this is the only country they know. so we are going to give them the status, deferred child status. but it's on an actual protection against deportation. recognize that you have to follow certain requirements. one of the requirements is that you have tole get clearance if you're going to leave the country. so we issue a thing right now is did this individual go back to
mexico without the free clearance, or was he part of a catch and release, which makes no sense at all that he was caught in california and then brought back to mexico and had to stay back in. it makes no sense. >> dana: let me just ask. if you were brought here as a 2-year-old child, so you group your whole life here and now you are whatever age. you did som can you be deported to a country you never knew? >> yes because you have -- you are not considered a citizen. you were brought here illegally. i won't even touch the issue. >> dana: but you don't even knowt that country that you came from. >> that's not the test. the law is very clear as it relates to citizenship. at least being born here. so the fact that you are told and given the benefit of the doubt almost by even president trump who said this is a veryy tough issue, general kelly, they both said we are going to deport you if you are and again come a come a threat
to national security. >> dana: all right, judge. i loved it. thank you.u. that's it for us to make your things are watching us. i am dana perino. tucker carlson is next. ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." the other, day, another apparent attack. isis is taking responsibility tonight for a shooting on the champs elysees in paris. a lab report from europe in a moment but the daily mail's katie hopkins will be here to discuss the growing danger of prospect confidence. first the war over president trump's immigration policies continues tonight. want a manual at montes an illegal immigrant was deported in february. he's doing. he should have been protected by dhaka, federal programs devised by the obama administration. the big
