tv Fox News Night With Shannon Bream FOX News June 7, 2018 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT
away from washington, d.c., but that is the street. about three or four blocks of my we are right now. they are anticipating the locals out and they would make the stanley cup tonight. i don't want to jinx it. 4-3 right now. shannon bream and "fox news @ night" we will try to get through that traffic. >> shannon: it's going to be tricky getting home tonight, laura. hopefully we have something to celebrate. thank you very much. we begin with a fox news alert. we've got major breaking news tonight. the man tasked with overseeing security unclassified information for the senate intelligence committee has just been indicted and arrested. amid allegations that he leaked multiple reports, including one from "the new york times." during that time the committee was investigating russian interference with the presidential election. plus, reaction to speaker paul ryan's comments on the spygate controversy from our judiciary chairman bob goodlatte. paul ryan is taking you to the president's unconventional diplomatic style, earning praise
from a world leader. and a i.c.e. raid with moloch. we'll talk to a gubernatorial candidate, and a few will say in response to those charges. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night." i'm shannon bream in washington. we're learning more about president trump's expectations for the singapore summertime how he plans to negotiate with north korean leader kim jong un. we've got team coverage. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is here with no developments from the doj and fbi investigation. but we begin with the chief national correspondent ed henry and north korea. >> good to see you. president trump is taking the peace process further than his predecessors, republican or democrat, yet, he is still taking heat. critics pouncing today on his comments in the oval office when he said he was already well prepared for the summit in singapore so he doesn't have to prepare that much anymore because he thinks it's about "attitude" and a willingness to get things done. democrat chuck schumer quickly tweeting this attack, "with
icbms and nuclear warheads in the hands of north korea, the situation is far too dangerous for seat-of-the-pants negotiating." that criticism leaves out the fact that schumer back the obama administration approach are north korea, which handed of the problems of the trump administration from both intel officials saying last year that kim jong un was able to miniaturize nuclear warheads that fit inside missiles that could or potentially reach the united states. in contrast, the president got high praise today from the japanese prime minister shinzo abe, who said he was encouraged by the president's fresh approach to the process, including his sensitivity to the japanese government's desire to get a resolution during these talks to the japanese citizens who were abducted by north korea decades ago. in contrast, the media has given a president little credit for moving the ball forward. it will be hard to get north korea to denuclearize, which is why the president try to lower expectations. he reminded the media one meeting will not end years of tension. the president's lead attorney in
the russia probe, rudy giuliani, gave a speech in which he said after the president wrote that letter canceling the summit, kim jong un "got back on his hands and knees and begged for the meeting." top officials of the white house stressed that giuliani was not speaking for the administration of foreign policy. the president tried to be more diplomatic in the rose garden, as he declared he has high hopes of kim and eventually visiting the white house, may be mar-a-lago up, but stressed he will walk away if kim does not do nuclearize. >> we have the potential to do something incredible. for the world. i am totally prepared to walk. it could happen. maybe it won't be necessary. i hope it won't be necessary to walk. speak of the president added him and kim may sign an agreement and the korean war. he would like to see normalized relations between the u.s. and north korea. breaking tonight, boris johnson, foreign secretary in the u.k., there was a leaked audiotape of similar marks he made, he said
he is increasingly admiring of donald trump and he said that he believes that there is now a method to what he calls his madness. some of his approaches to these negotiations around the world. interesting comment from the u.k. tonight. >> shannon: it sure is. ed henry, thank you very much by the president's fresh approach north korea has plenty of experts. his unconventional style of backfire. retired four star general in fox news sr. strategic analyst, general jack keane. good to see you, sir. >> good to see you, shannon. >> shannon: the president says it's about attitude, a willingness to get things done. he's not worried about the preparation. we know he's been briefed, he's got he's got an unconventional way of getting things done. >> first of all, i know for a fact that he's been well briefe briefed. over and over and over again by his advisors, so much so, they were supposed to go to can david this weekend, and secretary pompeo said, we don't need to do it. i think what the secretary is kind of sang to him, we don't want to over prepare you, and we certainly don't want to keep
giving you briefings to make us feel good. this is about you. i think they have a totally different approach. the secretary explained to some of that to us today. he said normally, there's a diplomat build up to a major summit for heads of state, and that is not what we have done here. what we are really expecting, we are going in there with our head of state, our leader, who is ready to make bold, positive, decisive decision based on the information he has at hand. it truly is a semite in every sense of the word without a lot of staff preparation of each other's staff in setting the agenda. i think the opportunity here is pretty significant. secretary pompeo said two other things today. eddie hadn't said before. kim jong un told him that he wanted to know it denuclearizing. i think when you go back to the number of weeks, that is what
elevated president trump's optimism that this could turn out to be something special. the second thing i thought he said, the security is important, he wants to bring a security package to the senate and ratify it. put it in perpetuity for future presidents to uphold. >> shannon: so much criticism from both parties during the negotiations in iran deal. democrats and republicans thought it was something that could have amount to a treaty. they wanted to vote on it. it's more easily undone. if it's a treaty, that is different. lawmakers again from both sides of the aisle saying they want to have a chance to act on it was the president put something together. some interesting fox news polling numbers today on this issue of north korea. while north korea ever give up their nukes? only 28% say yes, 60% say no. also in our polling today, president trump and kim jong un, who gets the better deal if they have a meeting? the president came out on top in this bull market. people think the president is capable of crafting a good deal. they don't believe north korea will give of the nukes, there.
>> the conventional wisdom is that they will not. the opportunity is there. kim jong un is a very young person. he's got 40 plus years in front of him, and is kind of coming to the forefront that he really is interested, very much in his future, the future of his family, those elites around him, and the status quo, and other words, staying where we are right now, with one crisis after another, that is not he wants. so we'll see. i do think that there is some realistic opportunity here. i think he is going to come in their facing president trump physically, intimidating person, absolutely full character and personality himself, probably going to feel a little bit insecure. i wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't ask for a one-on-one meeting to break the ice a little bit. i think the meetings want to have a lot of people in them. if you look at the meetings he's had with pompeo and with the moon, he has one guy there with
him. that is probably what he'll ask president trump to do. >> shannon: unless something changes, it's next week, we'll be watching closely. general, thank you very much. we'll have extended coverage next week. hopefully you'll join us for that. this is a fox news alert. the fbi has made an arrest in a long-running leak investigation. you know, they promised to do this. the attorney general and president. the former director of security for the senate intelligence committee who was to handle or classified information, james wells, has been indicted and arrested. he's accused of making false to all my statements to the fbi while they were investigating weeks of classified information. some of those apparently allegedly occurred nicely until committee was investigating potential russian interference in the presidential election. wolfe has charge of lying about his contacts with three reporters including through his use of encrypted messaging apps. the senate intelligence committee chair and vice chair say they are cooperating with investigators. meanwhile, "the new york times" reporting tonight that the doj
secretly seized emails and phone records from reporter ali watkin. they said the information seized predated her work there back when she was at buzzfeed, and that "fbi agents approached watkins seeking information about a previous three-year romantic relationship with james a wolfe. the senate intelligence committee's former director security. they were investigating unauthorized leaks. he's got a court hearing tomorrow. we'll follow it. the data set for the release of the long the long-awaited inspector general report on the fbi's handling of the hillary clinton email investigation. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is following new developments tonight. >> shannon, this letter from michael horowitz to the senate judiciary committee anticipates the reports released on the 14th with a public hearing for her over horowitz can defend the finding four days later. the original mandate focused on the clinton email case, but the congressional hearing suggests it may be broader. this comes as the push and pull over another set of sacred
government records intensifies. >> just after midnight, a senior justice department official told reporters that doj would offer congressional leadership, known as a gang of eight, another briefing and access to fbi confidential source records, monday or tuesday next week. requested by house intelligence committee devin nunes, working alongside oversight committee chairman trey gowdy, the records and are subject to a congressional subpoena. they are expected to shed more light and allegations and fbi confidential source contacted drum camping aids in the early stages of the russia case. multiple congressional sources told fox the documents were promised this morning but the justice department backed out. house speaker paul ryan. >> what we are asking for and what we require, and we expect, is the corroborating documents that back up that oral briefing. and last night, they could have brought her to us today and they chose to do it next week. it doesn't help. speak of the justice department official acknowledged the records are not available to lawmakers at the last session
two weeks ago, adding, "the department and fbi are prepared to brief members on certain questions specifically raised by the speaker and other members. the department will also provide the documents that were available for review but not inspected by the members along with some additional material." at his weekly news conference, the speaker said he supports the congressional investigators and expressed frustration. >> it shouldn't take a speaker of the house to get involved every one of these times to get the department of justice or any department in the executive branch to comply with congressional oversight requests. >> democrats dismissed the president to spy allegations and offended special counsel robert mueller. >> there is no evidence of a spy. collusion, less way to find out what mueller finds out. everyone should leave them alone, let him get to the bottom, and hear what he has to say. a speaker the house intelligence committees' ranking of the justice department offer was --g russia case. "the further disclosure or investigative materials of the next bookable. the doj is now reinforcing a president it will have to live
with whether the congress is in republican or democratic hands." a former justice department official said it comes down to powerful competing interests, robust congressional oversight versus the departments need to protect ongoing investigations. shannon? >> shannon: catherine herridge, thank you very much. speaker paul ryan's comments at the fbi acted appropriately with regard to surveillance and investigation of potential russian interference in the presidential election are getting mixed reaction. here's democratic minnesota senate candidate richard paynter on tucker tonight. >> tell me why it's not spying. >> they've already talked about this, paul ryan, representative gowdy, richard burr in the united states senate intelligence committee -- >> i'm asking you, why is that not spying? >> they have seen irrelevant information, including the classified information, which i have not seen. >> shannon: we should point
out that senate judiciary committee chuck grassley seeking more information from the fbi and how it uses informants. let's talk about it with house judiciary chairman bob goodlatte. create a happy with us. i saw the announcement today that in the coming days, you've set a date for hearing on the inspector general's report that will get next week on the investigation into hillary clinton's emails. there's a lot of investigating going on. what are you looking to learn from the inspector general's report? >> this is a very important report, we've been waiting for a long time, was promised earlier in the air, april, may. we are hopeful that we will finally see it, because it will answer a lot of questions about how the federal bureau of investigation and the department of justice handled the investigation into matters related to former presidential candidate and former secretary of state hillary clinton and contrast that with how they conducted the investigation and are continuing to conduct the investigation into the so-called
trump-russia collusion, alleging collusion between the trump campaign and russia. it's going to be very important to see this because, in my opinion, what we have seen from the strzok-page text and others, and incredible bias between how they handle v's two major matters, we can't go into another presidential election and have the world's premier law enforcement organization conducting themselves that way. reforms are underway, personnel changes, we've got to get to the bottom of the facts, and the inspector general will help us do that. >> shannon: are you concerned, some lawmakers are, and the president certainly has, this inspector general's report has been delayed. we know there are a number of stakeholders they get to see it, they have their chance to comment, and the inspector general could modify the report. are you worried about that or do you think it is running as normal course? >> that is why we will hold the hearing. we'll see the report, have the opportunity to interview the inspector general, both the judiciary committee, and the oversight committee, with trey
gowdy chairs, we hold a joint hearing, and we'll delve into not only what is in the report, and a classified setting, and for the portions that can be unclassified, and a public setting, but also ask about the process and any questions we have about who saw this, any changes they may have recommended. >> shannon: that is probably what he has been investigating, so many questions about the modifications of our james comey, than fbi director, came up with the wording, what was changed. i'm sure those things will spell out. you have a chance at those questions. >> we are looking forward to it. >> shannon: i want to ask you about this meeting behind closed doors today with the g.o.p. on the house side, talking about the matters of immigration. it's gotten to a very tense level, it sounds like to those of us on the outside. the competing interests about what is going to be done about speed 11, forcing something to the fore. what happened this morning? >> we had something that has been long overdue. we've been asking for a meeting
of our conference on the city, and is now come to a head because of the discharge petition, because of pressure from also freedom caucus member members, and it's a good thing that is coming to a head, it's not a good thing if we go into a discharge petition process because we could get a very unbalanced bill that doesn't reflect what the president needs and what the majority of the american people want in terms of enforcement of our immigration laws, while also doing something for daca, which is what the bell i've introduced along with mike mccaul and raul labrador and martha mcsally, the cheers of the homeland committee, and that was the focus of the discussion this morning. tell mike of the entire conference. we had many members to speak up and i think it was very productive. i think it is leading toward the consensus but we are not there yet. >> shannon: congressman steve king, a fellow republican if yours, said every one of the bills he saw has amnesty in it. he just wants to see a bill that does not have amnesty.
>> most people, including the president, have called for doing something appropriate for the daca recipients. however, we have to -- that's one pillar of president trump's four pillars. the others, they also have to be met. securing the border, closing the loop holes on amnesty and other aspects of illegal immigration, interior enforcement, and also making sure that we are moving toward a merit-based immigration system by ending extended family chain migration and the visa lottery. those are all things that we are working on. how you do that for the daca recipients is the key to that. if you don't have a special pathway to citizenship, and other words, something that only they can have, something they are eligible, but anyone who has followed the law is also eligible for it, i think that is a much more acceptable course of action for the vast majority of our conference.
and for the american people. >> shannon: got to get to do hundred 18. we'll see what you can put together that can get there, go through the senate and president. a lot of hurdles. chairman, thank you for joining us tonight. before singapore, there will be quebec city. the president planning on sticking to a hard line with the likes of emmanuel macron and trudeau. will our francophone friends fight back or fold? a live report from quebec. also, brand-new fox news poll, stunning approval ratings, and deprives moves in the generic midterm ballot. chris stirewalt is here to break it down. and this is a scene from downtown d.c. where fans of the washington capitals hockey team are celebrating their first stanley cup victory, defeating the vegas golden knights 4-1. it won't be easy to get home tonight in d.c. congrats to the caps. helped himt so he could get home safely.

>> shannon: battered by trump. trump attacks. those are the kind of headlines coming out tonight is the president prepares to meet with allies in canada. creative course on the docket, just before heading to the singapore summit. the g7 meeting is being cast as a showdown between friends fed up with a belligerent president fixated on butchering the rules of global free trade. so what is going to happen? class as correspondent kevin corke life from quebec. how are you, kevin? >> i'm doing good, always great
to be with you. the gloves are off. that appears to be the best way to describe the move just hours ahead of the official beginning of the g7 summit, about 90 minutes from where quebec city is. i would say this because the president on twitter espousing charging that he has been unfair to longtime allies by looking for more tariffs, in his effort to rebalance u.s. trade with our global trading partners. let me take you to twitter, he is not mincing words. let me just put it that way. the president saying the following: "prime minister trudeau is being so indignant bringing up the relationship of the u.s. and canada have had over the many years, and all sorts of other things, but he doesn't bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy, hurting our farmers, killing our agriculture." please tell prime engines are and president macron that they are charging the u.s. massive tariffs to create nonmonetary barriers. the e.u. trade surplus and the
u.s., $151 billion. canada keeps our farmers and others outcome i look forward to seeing them tomorrow." let me take you inside the numbers. there are so massive tariffs on american goods imposed by the canadians. do you want to bring terry here? there goes that tariff, the president was mentioning. 270%. sausage, almost a 70%. and it's not just the food, it is sometimes the things you used to create other foods, and even down there at the bottom, you see table linen. 18% of terror by the president predict all my biggest critic has been prime minister justin trudeau, who is promised to hit the u.s. with $16 billion in tariffs in response to new visa that the u.s. is imposing on steel and aluminum. fudge national economic council larry kudlow thinks the bluster will dissipate. >> president trump talks to prime minister trudeau a lot and continues to do so.
i think the bilateral meeting that are scheduled between the two is a really good thing. i think they'll walk through a lot of these issues. i have no doubt that the united states and canada will remain firm friends and allies, whatever short-term disagreements may occur. >> larry kudlow in the briefing room. don't forget the president will meet with emmanuel macron early sometime tomorrow ahead of the official opening here and he'll leave the summit a few hours early, heading to singapore with just a little bit more wind in his sales perhaps. shannon, back to you. >> shannon: kevin corke, north of the border. breaking tonight, brand-new poll members from fox news strong momentum for democrats ahead of the midterm election. at the same time voters seem to be worming to president trump a little better met his handling of the economy to the negotiations with north korea. the president's overall job performance rating taking up 45%. it was 44 in april. "politico" tweeting out,
"trump's approval rating matches those of former presidents, barack obama and ronald reagan in june of 20101982 respectively." let's break it down the fox news politics editor and editor of the halftime report, chris stirewalt. good to see you tonight. >> poll numbers. >> shannon: below poll numbers. let's talk about the generic midterm, who will you vote for in your district? democrat or republican candidates? now it says 48% will go with democrat, 39 would go with republicans if it was held today. >> one of the reasons i'm always telling everybody to chill on the generic ballot numbers, they've been remarkably consistent. there -- this one goes out at eight, nine points, quinnipiac had a poll out that had it at ten. and it has bounced around between may be four, five, and may be eight or ten at the top end. but we had an average of about a six-point advantage for democrats. that is enough to take the house
back. that is enough. it could come down to a seat here and a seat they are, if the democrats blow it, if they don't take the house back by the climate has been consistent. republicans do their voters a disservice when they hype up phony baloney poles, when they find it on line poll, and -- and they'll shout to the heavens, oh, look, it's closer than we thought, and then it isn't. the truth for a republican and republican voters, they've got to accept the fact that just like it was for barack obama in 2010 and ronald reagan in 1982 , the either type cycles, tough times. except for george w. bush. >> shannon: you are working up of 9/11. >> this is the norm. you know that americans love? divided government. everyone says they want things to happen, they want things to get done but what they really like our checks and balances and holding people in line. >> shannon: polls are not always right. the left seems worried because of what they have seen in some
of these recent primaries. david ferris running the mic writing an opinion piece says, analysts think the democrats chances of retaking the house are no better than a coin flip. this in itself is stunning. democrats should clean up a number terms, instead, they are barely muddling through. democrats, you have this. if you blow it within and the ability to sustain a brawl for more than six months, rest assured, you will be replaced with other lawmakers who can." some on the left are worried. they're not feeling good. >> i don't know this guy. goodness, gracious. you should be replaced, if you can for all. look at what democrats did on tuesday. they picked a centrist moderate candidates who can win in moderate districts, new jersey, iowa, new mexico, california. they are doing the things they need to do. what the liberal base in the democratic party wants, though, is brawling. they want barbaric yachts in the face of donald trump and screaming and howling and all of those things. that is not how you and mike at midterm election like this.
the way you win a midterm election this is by finding issues on which you can go against the administration on the party in power and say that we will be just as republican -- we will be a check on obamacare, the democrats have to figure out what their issue is and push hard. >> shannon: people are happy about the u.s. economy. 59% say they optimistic versus 45% saying pessimistic. on election day, it was tied at 49-49. they feel good about the president. that's the right sought if you are republican. spoke with numbers are ticking down. the republicans have to sell this economy. they have to keep selling it and talking about it. get the focus on the tax cuts. >> shannon: the poll shows i when it comes to the economy, people do trust republicans over democrats. there you go. we'll see you again soon. go caps. >> go caps. >> shannon: more than 100 illegal immigrants in a i.c.e. raid and an ohio business. jeff sessions says he's not shedding tears. what about former congressman
adam putnam? running for the republican nomination for governor of florida. after coming under investigation for what some say was his supportive amnesty for illegal workers on farms and businesses, he's got a new plan and allow him to answer those charges tonight. that's next. ♪ well, that seems fair. we didn't use it. wish we got money back on gym memberships. get money back hilarious. with claim-free rewards. switching to allstate is worth it.

>> shannon: there is a battle brewing tonight in northern ohio as activists, community leaders, and lawyers mobilize to provide legal aid to 114 undocumented immigrants. detained during a i.c.e. raid in a garden center earlier this week. as we focus to spotlight and the trump administration's about to crack down on the illegal immigration. trace gallagher is tracking the story. good evening. to speak with a massive i.c.e. operations app and in the sandusky, ohio, on the shores of lake erie. 114 illegal immigrants taken into custody all worked out two locations of the same flower and garden company. the operation began with an inspection of the company's
employee records, where immigration and customs enforcement agents found that well over 100 of the documents were suspicious. many of the illegal immigrants taken into custody could not face charges of identity theft and tax evasion. the feds say the workers might also be tied to supplying cheap labor to various businesses in ohio. the arrested immigrants are now in i.c.e. the tension facilities in ohio and michigan to be processed. local activist said the raids resulted in children's being stranded. many of the founding members are working with local advocates to get both information and legal representation. last month attorney general jeff sessions made it clear he has a hard time feeling sorry for those who break the law. watch. >> you don't get to gain a competitive advantage in this country by having large numbers of illegal workers who working for you. i am not shedding tears about
that. you don't get the benefit from being in this country and look around the world and find the cheapest worker you can find. >> the ohio operation came two months after federal agents arrested 97 illegal immigrants at a meat processing plant in rural tennessee. at the time, several rights groups said that was the largest workplace raid in decades and now the ohio operation is even bigger. i.c.e. acting director thomas homan says these workplace inspections are meant to send message to businesses across the country, that the administration is going to protect jobs for american workers. finally, it should be noted the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border has skyrocketed. there were 2100 more minors caught crossing the border illegally and may then in april. the number of unaccompanied minors cut coming into the u.s. this may was 329% higher than it was last may.
to the trump administration has implemented policies to separate kids from their parents when they are caught crossing the border illegally. shannon. >> shannon: thank you very much. our next guest is very familiar with just how tough it is to get something down on immigration on capitol hill. his conservative critics say during the time he was here he supportive measures they equate to amnesty. after stints in congress and as florida's agricultural commissioner, adam putnam is now running to be governor of florida. great to have you with us, sir. >> greetings from your old stomping grounds in tampa bay. >> shannon: i love it. seventh generation fluorine, always interested in what happens down there. always interesting in the broader sense of debates about immigration. i know you come from an agricultural area in central florida. one of the tile thanks to square for a lot of people, making sure there are workers for those businesses and making sure they are here legally. i want to play something from one of your former colleagues,
congressman dennis ross, republican from florida. >> i've been told that is something we will do later in the future, been here long enough to know that the teacher never comes. i want to see this happen. i'm holding out on signing a discharge petition until i can get some public guarantee that we will take the guest worker program that helps not only our egg communities, construction communities, and service communities. we needed to. >> shannon: how do you balance all of those interests? >> i think congressman ross is absolutely right to make sure that there is a total solution. president trump has led the way with his pillars plan. secure our borders, reform the chain migration, particularly on extended family, and the visa lottery program, and bring a permanent solution to daca. you know from your time in florida that the guest worker program is a legal mechanism to meet the needs of the tourism industry, the construction
industry, agriculture industry, and people are tired of waiting on washington. washington just fails to deliver a solution to our broken immigration system and that is why i was thrilled to be joined today by law enforcement and sheriffs as i rolled out my secure florida plan, which includes the safety and security of florida with reestablishing that to secure communities progm that president trump reinstated. in other words, the state of florida should have that relationship with i.c.e. because florida taxpayers are sick of paying tens of millions of dollars a year to feed and house and in our prison system, criminal illegal aliens who ought to be in the custody of the feds and not to be deported. >> shannon: your critics have said, and politifact checked a number of things that you voted for or supported with comments about some kind of legal path to either citizenship or residency, legal permanent residency, green
cards, those kinds of things, for people here illegally. they call it amnesty. have you evolved on that? would you say it is not amnesty by your definition? >> i've never supported amnesty. i have supported fixing the problem and securing our borders. i hope that washington will finally, not that we have a republican house, senate, and a president, building to do something about this, i hope they will bring a fix to this problem that has been plaguing our country now for a long, long time. in the meantime, though, i want to wait on washington, and as a for governor of florida, we put out a very specific plan, secure florida first. that is why i have been endorsed by sheriffs, and that is why i have been endorsed by law enforcement because law enforcement in florida recognizes that my plan and record is one that will keep floridians safe, and avoid the type of sanctuary cities and sanctuary states that had the
mayor of philadelphia doing a dance and it is exactly what california is doing and unfortunately, it is what are some candidates for governor here in florida would like to see. that won't happen on my watch as governor of florida. >> shannon: as you well know, florida's a very diverse estate with different interests, and obligations, and different populations, and i know you have a lot of folks to appeal to and talk to during the primary season. we'll watch it and be down there in florida to cover some of these races, including yours. commissioner, thank you for joining us. >> we look forward to having you back home. >> shannon: as the immigration debate heats up, a staggering apart from the doj says more than 20% of federal prisoners are immigrants at most are reportedly known or suspected to be in the u.s. illegally. our panel debates those claims next. ons. like an "unjection™". xeljanz xr. a once-daily pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well enough.

>> shannon: attorney general jeff sessoms said there should not be any illegal immigrants at present because they should not be in the country in the first place. the government says it has about 57,000 immigrants in its presence as of december 31st. it suspects or knows that most of them are here illegally. joining us now to talk about it, curtis lochner, senior columnis. i'm afraid of putting your two together on this topic. here we go. this is what the attorney general sessions inside. every crime committed by an illegal alien is by definition a crime that should've been prevented. it's outrageous that tens of
thousands of americans are dying every year because of the drugs and violence brought over our borders illegally in the taxpayers have been forced to pay millions of dollars to incarcerate tens of thousands of illegal aliens. isaac? >> they are trigger points. the logical point in the moral point. let's look at the logical point in the numbers that sessions is using. we know for a fact that only about 10% of the incarcerated population are in federal custody. the other 90% of state and local. he's talking about federal prisons, 30% of federal prisons, it's about 4% of state and local presence, 90% of the incarcerated population. so overall, we are talking about documented and undocumented together, collectively, immigrants make up about 7% overall of the incarcerated population, so statistically, what that means is whether you are in a federal prison are not federal prison, statistically, you are less likely to commit a crime in this country if you are an immigrant.
maybe we should take the immigrant population about them in charge in washington and figure out how to fight the crime endemic amongst the native born. >> shannon: i think kurt will explode. go ahead. what we know for me -- from the statistics, they are here on drug charges, either smuggling drugs, dealing in drugs, that kf thing. >> gosh, i thought they were all aspiring valedictorians, shannon. >> shannon: some of them are. >> in federal prison? >> shannon: speed but not of tht other immigrants. >> migrants and immigrants can be valedictorians. >> come isaac. apparently we've got to import a bunch of immigrants to do the time american convicts won't i am tired of this whole thing being treated of some imposition by american citizens when they demand to choose and pick who comes into their country. this is a democracy. this country belongs to us.
and these people disrespect us by coming here illegally, by disrespecting our laws, by breaking them, by coming here, and committing crimes! i'm not anti-immigrant. my beautiful immigrant wife is in the next room over. she came here legally with her family, built a wonderful life. immigrants are an important part of american culture. but it's a big lie, the big lie we have been fed is that every immigrant is wonderful. they are not all wonderful. there are crimes being committed, and the people paying the price are american citizens citizens, -- >> they are more likely to be law-abiding citizens the native-born. you can't argue with that. it's my mathematical. >> let's assume you are correct -- >> it's math. >> shannon: timeout. lots of isaac talk for a minute. >> it's math, statistics, published by a number two, there were two aspect of this. one, the logical aspect, the
second is the moral aspect. this is the part where believers in this country, when i say believers, people of faith, christians, will have to struggle with their conscience if they want to stick with president trump with brian and mcconnell and against the lessons of the bible, against the lessons of jesus in the new testament -- >> are you jesus splaining into me? >> shannon: we are not talking about abraham. we are talking about the people behind these numbers. quickly, kurt, we got to go. >> coming here to pick oranges at cuts rates florida is not something that jesus opined. >> shannon: those aren't the people that we talked about. we are talking about the people behind bars with crimes. we got to leave it there. we are talking about people who have committed crimes. gentlemen, goodbye, i love you.
