daca victory by the way and democrats are nowhere to be found. they are nowhere to be found. ♪ ♪ ♪ because i'm happy ♪ clap along if you feel like a room without a roof ♪ because i'm happy ♪ clap along if you feel that happiness is the truth. steve: i'm just happy i was able to get into work. rachel: i'm happy i made it out of wisconsin. steve: we wound up with 2 feet of snow at my house. brian: are you kidding? steve: 2 feet? >> imagine this, 1, 2. that much snow in front of my house. brian: almost hit our cameraman chris chulo. steve: he was celebrating a birthday earlier this week. rachel is here. we know had you trouble getting. rachel: 2 feet of snow is a tuesday in wisconsin. brian: they don't shut for anything. rachel: they shut it when it
3:02 am
gets below like 20 or something like that. then they go okay. brian: a little too cold. rachel: yeah, get a little too cold. steve: we don't each do that. thank you very much for joining us. we have got busy stuff. boy, speaking of busy. jeff sessions was busy yesterday. he essentially went out to california and dropped the hammer on california lawmakers and said. >> thank you. steve: you're welcome. he said you cannot pick which laws you are going to enforce and you have got to side with law enforcement. brian: i don't remember a time when we have seen a state against the government like this until you have to go back in history. california almost from the day president trump was elected has been taking him on all issues. when he said we are going to crack down on illegal criminals in our midst. i have an idea. we will be the first sanctuary state. game of on. yesterday, dueling pressers.
3:03 am
>> california, we have a problem. the california legislature has enacted a number of laws that is designed to intentionally obstruct the work of our sworn immigration officers. that's why the department filed a suit against the state of california to invalidate these unjust laws and to immediately freeze their effect. for example, the mayor of oakland has actively -- has been actively seeking to help illegal aliens avoid apprehension by ice. so here's my message to mayor schaaf, how dare you. how dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda. i fundamentally believe at my core that we should not further endanger the lives of those who risk everything for us because some officials want to violate the law in promoting an agenda that the american people reject.
3:04 am
brian: it also -- have you got to set a precedent. everybody, every time you don't like what a president does or an administration does you are going to defy it whether it's something with the e.p.a. or it's okay to go through legal processes. but to spit in the face of the president and the administration, i give the attorney general credit. rachel: absolutely. a lot of democrats in california are really upset about what he said. by the way, he also invoked the civil war which really ticked off kamala harris. let's take a look at what democrats are saying about sessions speech. >> this is really unprecedented for the chief law enforcement of the united states to come out to california and act more like fox news than a law enforcement officer. this is a political stunt. it's not about the truth. it's not about protecting our state. it's about dividing america. >> i think jerry brown is absolutely right. this administration and jeff sessions in particular, have
3:05 am
clearly put a target opt back of california and california is going to fight. they are playing politics and they are playing politics with california. this attorney general is doing that and is he going to lose. steve: oh, come on. they are not going to lose. of the federal government has a great case u it is the federal government that enforces the immigration laws of the united states of america. it's not every state gets to pick and choose. states don't get to decide what laws they are going to enforce. just to think that these politicians think that they care more about illegals in their state than the safety as jeff sessions said our law enforcement. and the rank and file people on the ground is extraordinary. rachel: it's not a winning message. we saw earlier in the year in january when they tried to shut down the government in order to protect dreamers. the american people said listen, you have got to put us first. it was a bad political move. they had to crawl out of the hole they put themselves in. moving into the mid terms. this is a bad message.
3:06 am
have you got ca kamala harris preparing for a run for president. a lot of people looking at california going this is where the democrat party is going. it's going further, and further left. brian: 3,000 miles away is where they get a push back because you don't have any republican party doing anything substantial in that state. they have been really destroyed from the times when richard nixon and ronald reagan were governors there. and pete wilson. now they have just been roughshod. and when you look around and you see how high their taxes are. when you see the huge homeless problem. when you see it was brought up last night on tucker's show. the exodus from san francisco in particular to a state that makes more livable wage and more livable lifestyle like in las vegas. that is what is happening. michelle malkin, who is on here all the time, talked about illegal immigration. she was talking about this in 1998. and sees it coming to a head now.
3:07 am
>> for jerry brown to call jeff sessions and donald trump's accountability for their actions a stunt, there is no bigger radical open borders clown car than the one that is filled by these democrat politicians. jerry brown, who declared the state a sanctuary state with his wrath of 10 different bills. prevent employers and land lords and stipulates and law enforcement from cooperating to make sure that that state is safe. sanctuary cities are outlaw cities. sanctuary mayors and sanctuary governors are outlaw governors. and we need to do more. we need to do more than just hold them civilly liable. they need to be criminally liable. they need to be kicked off from behind their bully pulpit and put behind bars. steve: there are a number of people who have called for the mayor of oakland to be jailed for the obstruction of justice.
3:08 am
the attorney general for the great state of california xavier ba serra said yesterday we are in the business of public safety. it's not deportation. tell that to the family of kate stein. it keeps coming back and donald trump when he was running for president, kate stein was murdered at that time. he said look, this is the kind of sanctuary city san francisco is. do you want to see that going forward? jeff sessions has made it very clear this administration doesn't want that to go forward and would like to turn the clown car around to use michelle malkin's words. rachel: let's remember, the president ran on this. he won on this. they are presenting it's anti-immigrant message. jeff sessions made a good point on his speech, listen. rewarding people who come here illegally actually discriminates against those immigrants who come here legally. i think it is really important for the republicans, for the administration to make that
3:09 am
distinction. we saw that last night jorge ramos was on saying immigrants commit less crime. what he is doing is conflating illegal immigrants and legal immigrants to get that number. and it's going to be important for republicans to make that distinction. we're not anti-imgrant. we are anti-illegal immigrants and felons coming here illegally. brian: tom fallon expressed his outrage that that mayor would tip off would-be illegals before ice could act in california, which they are doing despite the fact that the local law enforcement has been told not to cooperate. steve: we said jeff sessions was busy. not only was he in california he released a statement saying that the department of justice has announced that they will finally, after six years of legal wrangling will release the fast and furious documents that eric holder
3:10 am
worked for many years to keep from the american public. keep in mind, because eric holder would not release those to the house oversight committee, he was held in criminal and civil contempt of congress for not turning them over. and then barack obama, then just as they were about to vote for criminal contempt against eric holder, he invokeddicsive privilege. said you don't get to see those. now, this administration, through the department of justice and six years said we are going to see them. brian: gun running scheme. they cents guns into mexico. these drug cartels are going to use them and be able to track the guns. that was the hair brain theory it got brian terry killed. kent terry joined us a couple years ago and said about time to see those documents. listen. >> we need to find out the truth exactly what happened, how it happened, why it happened. we need, mr. trump, president trump, to unseal the documents, reverse
3:11 am
executive privilege so we know what happened and that we can hold the people accountable that are responsible. there needs to be accountability. there needs to be justice for my brother. he deserves it. he spent 22 years serving this country as a law enforcement officer, a marine. and that's what he deserves u. brian: he's about to get it. let's see what that paperwork says. it's days away. jason chaffetz will be out shortly. he was oversight committee. he got so frustrated with the attorney general jeff sessions because he didn't want to release it for some reason. he said no. that's party of the reason jason chaffetz is here and not in washington. if nothing is going to change with the attorney general i have got to get out of here. rachel: unbelievable. finally have a republican administration. we know that the scheme not only hurt the brother and killed the brother of terry, but it also caused a lot of death in mexico. those guns were used to kill mexican citizens. it became almost an international issue. it's unbelievable that jeff
3:12 am
sessions would say no, i'm thought going to release these documents. brian: let's go get the news now. jillian, have you been poised -- jillian: yes, i'm ready to start with the headlines. start with the weather. extreme weather. a monster nor'easter causing a travel nightmare canceling thousands of flights and leaving cars struck across stuc. we actually saw thunder snow. [thunder] jillian: in just a few minutes we will talk to janice dean who is tracking yet another possible storm. the coalition of the uss john mccain that left 10 sailors dead was caused by a sudden turn. brand new report by the singapore government said the turn cents the american warship into the path of an oil tanker. just weeks before that the

brian: a fox news alert now. and it's not good. we are learning the police officer shot in missouri was sent to andreas that did not match the initial 911 call's location. when they got there, the suspected shooter opened fire. and now there are fears that
3:18 am
the officers were indeed ambushed. clinton police officer christopher morton was killed. rachel: it's the latest in what has already been a deadly for law enforcement. 14 police officers killed so far. steve: what's happening to this nation? here now is a member of the tulsa department's gang unit and analyst for live ph.d. shearkt larkin joins us live in new york. >> good morning, guys. steve: what's going on. >> alarming number for officers killed by gunfire so far this year. it's a wide range of things. there are incidents like this and 911 call responding to disturbances, they are doing investigations on auto theft was one of these situations. one of the things that sticks out to me though of the 14 officers killed or these 14 incidents where officers were killed by gunfire and five of these incidents multiple officers were actually shot. brian: there's no fear about shooting an officer. in fact, i'm stunned to see at this time last year five
3:19 am
officers killed. now we're up to 14. >> right. brian: last year 35 killed, way too high but it's half of what 2016 was was the last year of president obama. the tone seems to have changed about the fear and respect that officers used to have. >> you know, that is something. i have been a police officer 21 years. i have tell you everything from testifying in court to just out on the street in your daily interactions with people. the respect for police officers has changed. and it's scary at times. there are over 57,000 officers assaulted in 2016. you know, the numbers show 25 to 30% of those officers were injured. that's nearly a record high. rachel: that's really too bad because that's got to affect recruitment as well. at an academy speech he said anyone who kills a police officer should get the death penalty. do you think that would help. >> i don't know if it would help but i agree with it
3:20 am
someone who purposefully kill as police officer, the death penalty should be used for that's definitely one of them. steve: these are very sobering statistics. i imagine when an officer gets dressed in the morning first thing he thinks about i have got to put on my vest today. >> as we were talking a few moments ago. 1970 averaging over 100 officers a year killed by gunfire. luckily with advances in technology and better medical training by officers. bullet-proof vest a policy for most agencies for officers to wear nowadays, that does keep the number lower. any officer killed in the line of duty by gunfire is too many. steve: thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: travel safely back to tulsa. brian: that show is awesome on the weekends. >> thank you, i appreciate it. brian: the baltimore mayor just bused thousands of kids to antigun march and this morning she is defending her decision. rachel: medical break

4:03 am
sworn immigration officers. so that's why the department filed a suit against the state of california to invalidate these unjust laws and to immediately freeze their effect. for example, the mayor of oakland has actively has been actively seeking to help illegal aliens avoid apprehension by ice. here is my message to mayor schaaf, how dare you. how dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda. i fundamentally believe at my core that we should not further endanger the lives of those who risk everything for us because some officials want to violate the law in mo promoting an agenda the american people reject. steve: a lot of american people are saying why does california have the agenda where they do give people who are in the country illegally so many -- so many
4:04 am
standards that the average person, you know, who is in the country illegally probably would not get? keep in mind. it was the president of the united states, i think it was two weeks ago, suggested that maybe we'll remove the ice agents from california. and the border patrol agents because the state is not helping us out. then the president tweeted out. i believe it was last week, that maybe we're not going to fund that little part of the california wall until we get the funding for everything. people are going why isn't california enforcing the law of the land? because when it comes to federal immigration, it's the federal government. it's not the state government. rachel: if you are a state you can't make your own currency and own military. you can't do your own immigration laws where the united states of america you don't do that you have a lot of chaos. when california allows violent criminals to remain in their state and evades the ice coming in and arresting them. that effects other states. those violent criminals can cross over to arizona and
4:05 am
utah and beyond. so that's why we have the federal government in charge of immigration. brian: illinois is watching this close. if the government is not successful here. they are going to be doing the same thing. governor jerry brown of california, and senator kamala harris who by all accounts is getting set to run for president, even though she has only been in position as a u.s. senator for about a year or. so they both weighed in. they see this as an opportunity to grandstand. watch. >> this is really unprecedented for the chief law enforcement of the united states to come out to california and act more like fox news than a law enforcement officer. this is a political stunt. it's not about the truth. it's not about protecting our state. it's about dividing america. i'm sure donald will be tweeting his joy at this particular performance. >> i think jerry brown is absolutely right. this administration and jeff
4:06 am
sessions in particular have clearly put a target on the back of california and california is going to fight. they're playing politics. and they are playing politics with california. this attorney general is doing that and he is going to lose. brian: he is not going to lose that's kamala harris who by the way governor jerry brown a little disrespectful. of the president calling him donald? steve: maybe they are really good friends that we simply don't know about. so many people saying after last week when oakland, california mayor essentially said hey, this is your warning. if you are in the country illegally, th the ice guys, i have heard are going to be coming through in a raid. people are going wait a minute. you can't really do that. that's why some people, members of congress are talking about she should be jailed for obstruction of justice. people are all across the country are saying what is happening in california? why did they do that? >> such a good question and trying to figure out. it's good politics in california. it's not great politics outside of california. steve: it's not good law. >> it's not good law.

we are entering into a midterm year. we have a president that the left really wants to take out of office. and if the democratic party wants to take a lead from california, it's just not going to work. it's not going to work with the democrats. they need to win back in the rest belt because american people voted for this president, including many democrats on this issue. steve: donald trump ran on law and order. and clearly, as we saw yesterday, the guy from the home office, the attorney general said you're breaking the law, california, have you got to stop. prescribe brian i'm not too sure that the people of california, if given a vote, about making allowing illegals to stay and allow the borders to be open, would actually vote against that i think many people are supportive of what the president or government is doing because it's not a stretch to enforce the law. tom homan is acting director of ice. he has operations in motion now to pick up a lot of those -- people who have overstayed their visas, many of which are dangerous and we will see where he stands
4:08 am
about trying to pick up the 600 he missed when the san francisco mayor tipped off aillegals. steve: we told you about how the department of justice has been looking into the dossier and whatnot. and members of congress as well. and so, up on capitol hill, devin nunes said to former obama administration officials. have you got until a certain period of time to answer this question like 20 questions. i think the deadline was last week. they have extended it to tomorrow. however, as we heard from congressman nunes last night, the doj and the fbi fought so hard to hide who paid for that dossier, which we know were the democrats. listen. >> we had a pretty good idea that the dossier was somehow connected to the clinton campaign because it was just made no sense that, you know, who else would go get that kind of dirt? it was just -- and it was so
4:09 am
outrageous, i mean, anybody at first glance would look at that and just reject it out of hand because nobody is going to give any american 19% of the russian gas company which would be worth billions and billions of dollars. just on the fails of it it looked totally phoney. i will tell you what did amaze us was the fight that the fbi and doj knew about it because they had told us otherwise. and in the fight that they put up, in order for us not to find the truth, we had to eventually, as you know, take fusion gps to court in order to get their bank records so we could figure out who, in fact, was paying them to put together the dossier. brian: so much has been contradictory. now it comes out that steele never even went to russia. these are accounts of people that he hired whose names we don't know and he comes back without being able to verify it himself. he is convinced of it and then he starts marketing it and gets frustrated when the fbi doesn't push it forward.
4:10 am
does it like an activist himself meeting with the media. there are some huge problems with that anyone who looks at the addendum at the bottom and thinks they were transparent with that fisa judge isn't paying attention. the democratic national committee, along with hillary clinton's campaign paid for this and then you might put in i believe it's valid. and then the judge can make his own decision. but, until we see the fisa documents, it's all up to conjecture and posturing. rachel: where are these fisa judges? if i were a fisa judge and been provided this incomplete information, i would be angry. i don't understand the system enough, they are upset. steve: listen. it's all secret. we are probably never going to see you any of that stuff. to nunes' point, it looks like the department of justice, when they have provided documents to members of congress and whatnot, they have redacted them so significantly, it does look like they are hiding some stuff. rachel: let's not forget former director james comey went back in early part of the administration, back in
4:11 am
january, he told president trump about the dossier never told him who paid for that dossier. brian: one thing, jillian, you are about to do the news. i have heavily redacted it. there are some things in there top secret. try to make it smooth. there is going to be huge black marks in the teleprompter. jillian: don't do that anymore? brian: last time. jillian: slide justice one time. brian: it's national security. jillian: talk about the weather, guys. steve, you felt it, i know a lot of people around the country are still digging out. let's get to that extreme weather. a monster nor'easter causing a travel nightmare canceling thousands of flights leaving cars stuck across several states and snow still falling in massachusetts. some areas seeing more than 2 feet of snow. it's crazy. hundreds of thousands of people without power for reasons like this. take a look. a downed power line bursting into flames right near a home. the east coast may get hit with another storm next week. yikes. a fox news alert. we're hearing the moment three missouri officers were shot responding to a 911

video games are plainly not the issue. however, that sentiment is not shared by everyone. and while no one is casting blame on the games themselves for the recent shootings say in parkland, florida for example. white house officials think having this conversation now is important. >> does he think that video games are too violent? >> it's certainly something that should be looked at something that we want to have the conversation about. >> i'm hearing more and more people saying the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people's thoughts. >> that was the president of the united states just last month, perhaps tipping his hand just a bit ahead of the conversation. one important for the american family. for now we send it back to you. steve: bring in dana loesch nationally syndicated radio host of the dana loesch show also she is a spokesperson for the nra. dana, good morning to you. rachel: good morning, dana. >> good morning, everyone. hey, rachel.
4:36 am
steve: the florida state legislature has passed some gun control bills. the bill creates, among other things, a risk protection order allowing police to confiscate guns of people who are involuntarily committed under the baker act or pose a violent threat to themselves and others and also has a guardian program where certain members of teaching staff or faculty might be able to carry guns. what's your reaction to what florida has done? >> well, you know, i always support school districts and teachers and parents coming together to determine how to best address their school security issue. and this is something that schools all across america are going to have to determine on a case-by-case basis. i would caution everyone that there is no one size fits all for schools when it comes to security because every school is different. locations are different. parents and teachers are different u some teachers may feel more comfortable than others training and carrying in school and, of course, you want teachers, if they want to carry, if they voluntarily want to, not something that should be
4:37 am
mandatory. they go in for training and feel comfortable doing that at school, then that should definitely be something that's available to them. and, also, getting rid of gun-free zones. once again, i want to throw the statistic out that since 1950 to july of 2016, 98.4% of mass shootings, these mass casualty incidents have taken place. steve: right. >> in gun-free zones. this is one thing that we immediately first need to get rid of is this idea that creating soft targets and making people defenseless somehow keeps them safer. brian: right. let me just add. >> the nra believes -- go ahead, sorry. brian: here are some other things that florida put into play that the governor might have a problem with. he has a few days to sign or not sign. he is against allowing teachers and staff to be armed after 140 hours of training. he is against raising the rifle age to 21. he says a three-day waiting period. funding school officers in the training. and he wants to give police as steve mentioned, more
4:38 am
power to seize weapons and banning bump stocks. so, florida came out strong. the governor doesn't like two entle o elements of this. do you look for him to pass this? would the nra be in support of that. >> i'm not exactly sure what he is going to do. i know the nra has come out already and we have issued a statement opposing increasing the age to purchase long guns simply because a two-year period doesn't solve psychosis. furthermore, you would be disenfranchising. rendering defenseless a lot of individuals out there who live alone who are young adults. it seems insane to me and to millions of nra members by the way, many of whom are young adults, also, it seems crazy to put their liberties on the chopping block after the stem mick failures of government. for crying out loud, the fbi, the acting deputy director david bodick came out and briefed members of congress saying yes, the fbi did fail to follow up on two tips and saying yes they did
4:39 am
get enough information from one of those tips that they should have acted through their miami field office and didn't. we are talking about punishing innocent, unless, unless of law abiding gun owners for the failures of government to enforce the laws that exist that would have prevented this tragedy. rachel: despite those failures the nra right now is being seen as the bad guy in this situation. in fact, the connecticut governor just called you a terrorist organization take a look at this. >> the nra as it exists today is a far cry from the nra that 1999 said teachers shouldn't be -- shouldn't carry weapons in schools. or between in the 1990s also said we should have universal background checks. they have in essence become a terrorist organization. steve: so are you a terrorist? >> i mean, i'm a mom. i have kids. i mean, we are dealing with homework issues late last
4:40 am
night. maybe making my kids get all their homework done makes me some kind of terrorist. i can't take seriously anyone who says that they're coming to this conversation. i cannot take their claims in good faith genuinely or seriously at all when they decide to insult and smear millions of law abiding americans. one of the things i'm asking for parents who are nra members or law abiding gun owners to do. shoot a quick video. upload a video on social media using the #nra parents to explain why they carry and why they are not terrorists. i'm tired of people questioning mothers and fathers and saying that they love their firearms more than they love their children. one of the reasons that i i have a firearm is to protect my family. brian: right. >> is to protect my kids. honestly, you know, guys, let's be real in my mind i'm like 7-foot tall, 400 pounds. in reality i'm 5, 6 and 125. i want to defend my family. i'm not going to be shamed for it by the connecticut governor or anyone else that wants to smear me or anyone
4:41 am
as terrorist because we disagree with him and we have a different way of protecting our family. brian: you are not against universal background checks though, right? >> like the ones that failed in california or the ones that have failed in colorado? i mean, do i believe that one of the things that we need to do is make sure that states are reporting fully and accurately, which they are not doing, all of their criminal convictions to the national crime information center for knicks to check when someone purchases a firearm. nra and wayne lapierre came out strong on this actually longer than i have been able to vote really to make sure this system works accurately. i want to, again, the political class could fix this tomorrow. they could fix it today. say look these states need to report this into the system. real quick note because i know everyone brings up prince vs. the united states. that was a case that was about the federal government forcing the states to implement and administer a system by the federal government it doesn't prevent states from reporting convictions,
4:42 am
people are dangerous to others who have been convicted a court of law. sending that to. in ncic. prevent dangerous criminals from purchasing firearms. we need to come together to make sure that system works. rachel: thank you, dana. you are not a terrorist. >> thank you so much. no i'm not and neither are you, rachel. steve: reaction with what happened down in florida. now with reaction to what happened here in the northeast and the big dumping we got yesterday snowwise here is j.d. >> we saw incredible amounts of snow, close to 3 feet in the interior sections of the northeast. let's take a look at it i have updated snowfall totals. in new jersey over 26 inches there. i mean, over 2 feet in a lot of areas. if you are by the coast, around the coast, that's where we didn't get a whole lot of snow it really depended on where those heaviest bands set up. we are still getting snow across new england. on the back side of that we could get a few snowflakes across the great lakes. now, of course, everyone is like what is happening this weekend? here is the gfs model.
4:43 am
this one unfortunately brings the potential for another nor'easter sunday into monday. it comes close enough to the coast that we are going to have to worry about it. however, the other model that we look at in terms of where the snow goes is the euro model. this is the european model. this one shows an offshore event. this is the one that we like, but we have to take both of those into account. and we will keep you up to date. this will be a sunday, monday event. winter ain't over yet my friends. steve: we like offshore events. >> we do too. steve: janice, thank you. janice: you got it. steve: one democrat says ice has too much power. what does the top ice guy think? thomas homan live the next hour. brian: housing market is hot again. industry expert says the rebound far from over. what else can we expect? the property man, bob massi up next ♪ living in america ♪ when i received the diagnosis, i knew,

4:48 am
you go and talk to your town ahead of time to see how much your taxes are going to go up? particularly, you know, if you live in the northeast or florida or california where taxes can be high. you don't want to fix up your house and suddenly boom, where did this bill come from? >> boy, that is a great question. absolutely. any kind of remodeling you do to your home, did you go to the tax office and see how it effects you. the other thing, steve, that happens real quick is the fact that a lot of people remodel their homes and they don't use licensed contractors, that creates problems in the future when you go to sell your home. absolutely go to the assessor's office and say i'm adding a thousand square feet or a simple remodel no addition to square footage, you don't have to do that. steve: you are sitting in las vegas right now. that was ground zero during the housing market. >> it was. steve: bubble burst for foreclosures. >> yes. steve: there are still a lot out there, aren't there? >> there are still foreclosures that are happening. people that basically are sitting in their home that haven't been foreclosed on.
4:49 am
not as many as there used to be. the other thing that concerns me, steve, a lot of loan modifications are maturing this year. that means their payments are going to double. there has been increase notice of default in las vegas. that concerns me. so, there is going to be some problems. but, overall, i think, if the mortgage rates stay okay, i think we will be all right. that's another thing we have to watch for are the interest rates. steve: all right. we will. bob massi, vegas. >> take care. steve: two top republican congressman demanding a special second counsel over fisa abuses. is it going to happen and when, perhaps? jason chaffetz has a pretty good idea. he is come up live in about 10 minutes u a missile is coming. if you thought that alert -- if you got that alert, would you know what to do? our next guest is a green beret and he says you better have a go bag.

5:04 am
enact ad number of laws designed to intentionally obstruct the work of our sworn immigration officers. so that is why the department filed a suit against the state of california to invalidate these unjust laws and immediately freeze their effect. mayor of oakland has actively, has been actively seeking to help illegal aliens avoid apprehension by i.c.e. so here's my message to mayor schaaf. how dare you? how dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda. fundamentally believe at my core that we should not further endanger the lives of those who risk everything for us because some officials want to violate the law in promoting an agenda that the american people reject. steve: how dare you. >> this is one of the best things that the trump
5:05 am
administration is doing. remember in the obama administration more than 80,000 times they had people that were here illegally. they were entangled in the legal system. convicted of a crime. instead of deporting these people, president obama released them out into the public. now you have the trump administration, again doing what they said they would do, working to deport them. the mayor of oakland giving heads up to the criminal element, this is the criminal element. i would think the house, senate, judiciary committees, should yank her up, raise the right hand and learn everything about that case. they could do that in two weeks time. don't need to go through the lawsuits. issue a subpoena, get her up in washington, d.c., and have the democrats defend why they are pro-illegal alien criminals and anti-american i.c.e. officers. rachel: move away from the policy for a second is. you're a politician too. what is the politics of this?
5:06 am
how does it work out for the democrats? the president won on problem i missing to enforce immigration laws? >> in california it is so different, they are catering to the illegal immigrant population. it makes no sense in terms of putting america first. makes absolutely no since. they're catering on a political sense but it is fundamentally wrong. you can't do this. the supremacy of the federal government, they have the jurisdiction on immigration. brian: all right so on this in particular i'm not sure that the people of california are being well-represented by their representatives because i think they don't want aing magnet of illegals setting up tent cities in all the major cities while their tax dollars are going through the roof. i'm sure if they did a plebiscite it would go differently. some people pointed out during president obama's rein there was scott pruitt, attorney general in oklahoma defying the president on environmental laws.
5:07 am
is there any difference here? >> places like utah where i'm from, idaho, are fastest-growing states in the union. they are fleeing out of california. they don't want to live in these type of situations. high taxes and allowing the illegal immigrant population to thrive. they're protecting the criminal element. we're not talking about a lady trying to help her son make a better life. we're talking about criminals. brian: go over to something you're very familiar with. trey gowdy, buddy, took your job, want as second counsel. doesn't look like jeff sessions wants to do that. listen. >> i have appointed person outside of washington many years with the department of justice to look at allegations that the house committee members sent to us. we're conducting that investigation. steve: they're thinking about it. >> you have an attorney general who can't do his job. president trump and american people deserve a fully functional attorney general.

5:10 am
improperly stuff comes out. >> he is right. lee zeldin is exactly right. one of the better members in congress i like. speaker of the house has to take control. the speaker is in charge of the select committee. it is in charge because the speaker gets pick personally each person on the republican side of the aisle. nancy pelosi personally picks to the other. they bring this to the floor of the house, if they have evidence of somebody actually leaking should discipline that person on the floor of the house. brian: something you're familiar with. "fast & furious." so frustrated with attorney general sessions would not release document what is eric holder knew, what the department of justice knew under eric holder. now the documents are going to be released of the put that in context for us. >> a year ago i met with attorney general sessions. he would not release these. he would continue to let a lawsuit going forward. don't you find it interesting when the department of justice issues a subpoena, they expect
5:11 am
compliance immediately or you go to jail maybe get fined. when congress issues a subpoena such as issa on "fast & furious," or devin nunez, the department of justice, we'll consider it, maybe we'll think about it. they never did comply with it. rachel: former member of congress himself, he would give that kind of respect back to the institution. >> no. rachel: what is wrong with that? >> i spent an hour with him. i was shocked. there were a whole list of things including "fast & furious." we sent out a tweet. we worked with them. the terry family made a big deal about this. within 48 hours there was a change. they still have to go before a judge and get her to agree, both parties agreeing to release documents subpoenaed nearly seven years ago. steve: ultimately a year ago when you went to talk to attorney general jeff sessions says i can't do it, how much was him and how much was the deep state which you talked about a lot? >> the deep state is alive and well but attorney general sessions was not willing to

wrong address. one of those officers, christopher morton, killed at the scene. a gunman opening fire on them when they arrived at an address 15 miles away from where a 911 call came in. is now under investigation. the gunman is dead. new warning for travelers, weeks after a bomb ripped through a ferry in mexico, youer remember the video leaving seven americans hurt. they received a information about security threat but not specified whether it was related to the blast. u.s. government employees banned from traveling in the area. if you're traveling to mexico the u.s. state department urges you to review the safety guides. you can find that link on our website, that is look at the headlines. brian. brian: get this, two florida teens were arrested for getting high, taking a joyride in a stolen truck after police got a tip from one of their moms. here is what she had to say about her decision. >> i want him to take responsibility for his actions and i want him to stay out of
5:24 am
trouble. i want him to turn his life around and that is why i did what i did. i didn't have to think about it. if he does it again, i will call the cops again. brian: wow, what do you think about that, parents? would you call the cops on their kids if they're misbehaving like this? best-selling author of, your kids are your fault, larry winget and we have a specialist. larry, first off, good move for the mom. >> must be sad to admit to yourself that your so inept as parent your only option to call the police to come out and do your parenting for you. you have to think about the consequences. she said she wanted him to take responsibility and state out of trouble. when she calls the police, there is a chance he will go to jail, have a record and get in some real trouble as a result of that. it is not a good option for her to do at this point. brian: doctor, she is obviously, we don't know the whole history of her, obviously someone lost control her kid. >> larry i totally disagree.
5:25 am
you don't know anything about this mom. you don't know what she has been through. you don't know if this happened seven times. she might be at end of her rope. she may be at point where she had no other choice. sometimes only way for the kids to get help for them to actually get into the system and have it sanctioned by the court. brian: does the system help, larry? >> well i love that get into the system. you know they put him into the system and we've just seen way too much evidence when a kid gets into the system he gets thrown in with real criminals and get in real trouble. he might get hurt, might be abused. i would think long and hard before i ever call the police. a 17-year-old kid that is out of control was out of control at 1months old. the lesson for every parent out there, is to get if in control of your child. impose consequences so they learn good behavior from the very beginning. brian: you say doctor, parents
5:26 am
are enforcing bad behaviors and may not be aware of it what do you expect? >> if you enable your child, keep giving them what they want, don't allow them to experience natural consequences of their actions, you are reinforcing the behavior and you are in a way encouraging this type of a situation. brian: right, consequences, larry you're all about consequences. isn't this is the consequence you're talking about? >> well natural consequences. he and i agree on this, absolutely. consequences do drive behavior. i just think that there were some consequences that could have been imposed other than calling in law enforcement. what do you want law enforcement to do? it is not the job of the police to come to your house, saying little johnny, you shouldn't act that way. you need to mind your mommy. you know better than that that is not their job. their job is to arrest people when they break the law. if you're ready for your child to be arrested and go to jail, that is the consequence you want to impose, then make that your choice. brian: dr. bober, hopefully i
5:27 am
will not have to deal with this i would never call the cops because in the system they're not looking to give you a warm hug and rehabilitate you like if i went to your office, right? >> i don't think it is the first step but it may be a step in the process of other opportunities have failed. brian: the other thing thaw worry about, larry, single-paint families, they might be in a situation working two or three jobs. you know what? it is very hard to be a very good parent if you're not there, leaving food out for them to eat and coming home at 10:00 at night. what do you do in that situation? >> you get some help from outside. you have to have friends, relatives, somebody else involved to make sure you're doing a good job. still staying in control of your child. if you have to do whatever it takes to make ends meet i understand that. remember priorities though, your kids should be your number one priority. you have to be there to parent them, regardless of what else is going on in your life. brian: or else the state will
5:28 am
raise them or jail them. obviously these kid, stealing a car, don't really know many people with that type of mind-set. larry, dr. daniel bober, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. brian: next on the run-down, back to politics. kamala harris says the trump administration is giving i.c.e. too much power. >> i.c.e. has a purpose. i.c.e. has a role, i.c.e. should exist, but let's not abuse the power. brian: acting director, tom homan think about that? is he abusing his worker. visit walmart worker and now the whole world with this national anthem performance. in a chevy truck. and now, you can too. see why chevrolet is the most awarded and fastest growing brand the last four years overall. current competitive owners can

5:32 am
california and act more like fox news than a law enforcement officer. this is a political stunt. it is not about the truth. it is not about protecting our state. it is about dividing america. i'm sure donald will be tweeting his joy at this particular performance. >> i think jerry brown is absolutely right. this administration and jeff sessions in particular have clearly put a target on the back of california and california is going to fight. they're playing politics and they're playing politics with california. this attorney general is doing that and he is going to lose. steve: let's bring in tom homan, acting director of i.c.e. he joins us from our nation's capitol. mr. homan, what do you make of the governor of the great state of california and their freshman senator? >> i watched the press conference yesterday. the governor is plain wrong when he says i.c.e. has access to the jails. they're to the releasing criminal aliens to the street. last night the california
5:33 am
sheriffs association, his own sheriffs, released a statement last night, i want to read one sentence from that statement. this is from the california sheriffs. we oppose sb 54. the bill is enacted containing significant liables which include restricting our communication with federal law enforcement about the release of wanted, undocumented criminals from our jail including gang members and other serious offenders. his own sheriffs are agreeing with i.c.e. and doj are saying. rachel: attorney general jeff sessions said that the mayor of oakland was endangering the lives of agents and i assume some of these sheriffs as well. what do you say? >> absolutely. she let the criminal aliens that we had targeted for arrest, gave them advance notice law enforcement was coming for them. many criminal aliens were not apprehended because of that warning. i can't put specific number on that but a lot of criminal aliens were to the found because they were given advance warning
5:34 am
by the mayor, which increased public safety issue in her area. we have criminal aliens walking around the commune now in hiding because of her warning. brian: tom, here is something else. i imagine when you became a sanctuary state, you become aing magnet. so your job gets harder in a state that doesn't want you there or at least the governor and some people in the apparatus don't want you there. >> absolutely. when you call yourself a sanctuary city, dangling a carrot which will cause more illegal immigration. they will see more illegal immigration in the state of california. it is more than just enforcement issue. more people will die trying to come to this country because they think they can get to a state or city where they are shielded from immigration enforcement. it is wrong on many different levels. brian: the senator from california called out your agency. listen to what she said about what i.c.e. does and what they're doing. >> i.c.e. has a purpose. i.c.e. has a role. i.c.e. should exist but let's not abuse the power, let's not extend it to areas that were are
5:35 am
not, posing a threat to the safety and the public safety of these communities. it is unnecessary and frankly, this administration has decided they will scapegoat communities, throwing red meat out to their base while at the same time picking the pockets of the taxpayers of the united states with one trillion dollar tax bill benefiting big corporations. it is a lot of distraction. brian: you're abusing your authority? >> you know what a shame? we're not abusing our authority. we're enforcing the law. kamala harris needs to understand is her facts. 89% of everybody we arrested last fiscal year, nine out of 10 aliens did have criminal history. when we look at california specifically, the last operation in los angeles, 88% of those were criminal aliens. i tried to meet with kamala harris dianne feinstein three separate occasions last three months what i.c.e. is doing, they canceled everyone of meetings. they don't want to know the
5:36 am
facts. they want to play political game, put smoke and mirrors up what i.c.e. is doing. she is wrong. steve: governor jerry brown yesterday said basically going to war against the state of california. is the federal government, tom, going to war with california? >> no we're not going to war in california. i've gotten numerous emails from the citizens of california thanking i.c.e. for what we are doing. look, we are enforcing immigration laws. kamala harris is not asking the fbi or dea or any other law enforcement agency to ignore laws they are supposed to force. we're prioritizing enforcement of our laws. make something clear. there is no prerequisite alien has to commit a crime when they get to the united states to have the law enforced upon them. we enforce immigration law. that is our job and sworn oath. we'll do it without apology. steve: can i ask you a quick question how did this sanctuary city business start? who thought it was good idea, okay we'll enforce that law but
5:37 am
not enforce this law? >> i don't know how it started. we they were not talking to victims of illegal alien crime. talk to a few parents who lost their children to illegal criminal aliens. they ought to talk to law enforcement. law enforcement across the ranks. street officer, they don't support the sanctuary legislation. i just read a statement from the california sheriffs association that we're against this bill. they tried to get the, convince the governor not to sign it. he still signed it. look, sanctuary cities, bottom line, you can't argue this, this is public safety threat, it is an officer safety threat. i asked doj to review what is going on in california. they reviewed it. they decided to sue. rachel: director homan, there is effort on the part of the governor, kamala harris to conflate, say you nice are out there arresting a guy in a restaurant or a grandma. can you talk to us specifically about any cases that you know of that these are actual violent or
5:38 am
criminals or felons? >> yes. actually i have a list in my hand people we arrested during the latest operation. let me read a few of the people we arrested in the latest operation. aliens with numerous criminal convictions for aggravated assault with deadly weapons. murder. lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14. child molestation. cruelty against wife. cruelty against child. numerous burglaries, batteries. these people are public safety threat. these are people tar getted during the operation we took off the street. oakland mayor and congressional representatives would send me letters thanking me for removing public safety threats. rachel: i don't think enough citizens in california know the list exists that needs to get out there. steve: mr. homan you were talking a week or two ago after the mayor of oak lan essentially warned the illegals, criminal element that there might be some raids, that you were considering obstruction of justice charges or some sort of charge against
5:39 am
the mayor. what's the status of that right now? >> doj is reviewing that. i do not know the status of it but one thing i want to make clear for these congressional representatives and governor and mayor who says i.c.e. should be focusing on criminal aliens, in fact we are. like i said, nine out of every 10 arrests last year were criminals. if you want to focus on criminals, let me back in the jails. kill sb 54. before they are released back into the community to reoffend against the very immigrant communities they live in. there serious about that. brian: difference from the people running california than people live in california. a lot more support you than you believe with the positive yesterday. >> i agree 100%. rachel: child sexual assault criminals in the home of the start of the me-too movement. i think that, these politicians might want to get at least that
