2:00 pm
>> arthel: the house of representatives preparing to vote on two republican backed immigration bills. the push to address the hot button issue is sparking division within the party. hello, everyone. i'm arthel neville. welcome to a brand-new hour inside america's news headquarters. >> eric: i'm eric shawn. paul ryan pushing a so-called compromise bill that would provide billions of dollars for border security and a path to citizenship for 1.8 million so-called dreamers. the moderate measure and a conservative bill do face an uphill battle in congress. the trump administration defending a crackdown on illegal immigration after a new report says that nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents at the border just in the past six weeks. >> sanctuary policies are terribly wrong and under president trump, the department of justice will not stand idly by while our laws are being
2:01 pm
nullified and undermined. we're taking every action we can take to push back. >> eric: the policy is causing growing outrage. we have more from washington. >> reporter: the president sticking to his guns when its comes to his immigration priorities. he plans to continue to enforce a policy that separates immigrant parents from their children at the southern border in spite of his publicly expressed hate for the policy. in a tweet this morning he puts the onus on democrats, writing democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the border by working with republicans on new legislation for a change. this, the day after he stunned republican leadership with a declaration on "fox & friends" that he would not support a compromised immigration plan months in the making. >> i'm looking at both of them. i certainly wouldn't sign the more moderate one. i need a bill that gives this country tremendous border security. i have to have that. >> reporter: the white house press staff went on defense and immediately clarified those remarks insisting the president will sign onto one of the two
2:02 pm
republican-led bills. frustration is ram panpant on capitol hill. >> he's using children, whether dreamers or children at the border, for political purpose. >> reporter: administration insiders say that by continuing to enforce this separation policy, the president's playing a long game. he hopes to ultimately force the democrats' hand and i crease the chances of reaching a broader compromise on immigration. the hot ticket items for the president include funding for border sciewrkts including the -- security, including the wall and curtailing illegal entries all of which his colleagues insist they've got covered. >> we've been working with the white house on this. i don't think it's been fully vetted with him yet and it contains all of the things that he mentioned in that interview that were important to him, all of the pillars. >> reporter: the department of homeland security releasing figures that reveal almost 2,000 children were forced into presentation from their parents during a period of only six weeks between april and may of
2:03 pm
this year. eric he. >> eric: thanks so much. >> arthel: fox news can confirm that president trump will meet with house republicans late tuesday afternoon to discuss immigration. this as the white house is now clarifying the president's earlier comments on the issue, saying the president fully supports both republican proposals in the house after saying on friday he would not sign a compromise bill. garrett teny is on the north lawn with the latest. garrett, what more are you hearing? >> reporter: in the back and forth that we had yesterday, the white house tells us it was because the president was referring to a separate immigration effort in the house to address immigration when he said i would not sign this bill. when it comes to the two bills that are going to be presented next week, the president does support both of those and he would sign either of those. that is an important distinction. the president's support is vital to any bill making its way through congress and becoming law. all along, house republican
2:04 pm
leaders have said they will only support a bill if it's going to become law and mitch mcconnell said he would consider bringing a bill to the floor if there is a chance at it passing and that it will clearly be signed by the president. now, this effort is important because immigration is also turning up to be an issue in the midterm elections and that is something president trump is very much pushing forward as well. arthel. >> arthel: democrats are taking aim at president trump over the separation of parents and children at the border. how is the president responding to those criticisms? >> for the last month the white house has been saying that the loopholes in our immigration system are a big reason why a lot of folks are still making their way to the border and crossing illegally and placing the blame on democrats for those loopholes, saying the democrats are not willing to come and make a deal on immigration that would close the loopholes and address a broader immigration policy.
2:05 pm
here's the president yesterday on "fox & friends." >> that's what the democrats gave us, and we're willing to change it today if they want to get in and negotiate but they just don't want to negotiate. they're afraid of security for our country. >> reporter: the practice of separating families comes as a result of the zero tolerance policy that the trump administration enacted last month. it entails that any person that is caught crossing the border illegally will be prosecuted and that is why these families are now being separated. the white house argues that congress and democrats can end that practice by reaching a deal on immigration to stop that, to close the loopholes and address some of the president's larger concerns with border security and immigration. yesterday, in pennsylvania, jeff sessions who enacted the zero tolerance policy defended the administration's actions on that front. >> our goal is to reduce and ultimately end illegal
2:06 pm
immigration. whatever you think about the numbers or what it should be, accomplished, we think it ought to be lawful. people should apply, should conduct themselves properly. we're not hostile to immigration. we're not against immigration. we're not trying to punish good people who want to come here in a lawful way. we simply are responding to the decent concerns of the american people that end the lawlessness. >> reporter: as we mentioned at the top, we want to repeat that the white house-dark fox news has learned from the white house that president trump will be meeting with house republicans on tuesday afternoon to discuss immigration. again, that's important because president trump's support of any of their bills is vital to it passing the house, making its way to the senate and having any chance of becoming a law. >> arthel: thank you very mucher joining us now for more on the legislation and the issue of separation of children from their parents, john krashaw.
2:07 pm
welcome, john. the president will go to capitol hill on tuesday to discuss the issue of immigration and the two bills, what do you expect could come out of the meeting? there's been >> there's been a s break down between congressional republicans and the president. thpaul ryan has been working to manage both sides of his caucus. the key for president trump is to convince the conservatives in the caucus that the measures that give daca kids a pathway to citizenship and offer that path for dreamers, that that's not a deal breaker for some of the more conservative members of the house republican caucus. >> eric: do you think they would change it to legalization as opposed to si citizenship. >> i think there is negotiating room. the conservative republicans will listen to what the president says. when he was on "fox & friends" on friday and left a little bit
2:08 pm
of ambiguity on where he stood on the legislation, it created an opening that paul ryan has been trying to close. >> eric: you see this as a chance for him to lay out what he wants to see and try to bring some of the more conservative members more to the moderate bill or more for the conservative bill. >> the president said he didn't support the more moderate bill. the compromised bill is more likely to pass the overall house, that's the one that trump is supportive of. he needs to say that himself. he can't rely on spokes people to do it for him. he also needs to make sure that a lot of moderates who aren't comfortable perhaps with the reduction in legal immigration that would be entailed in the compromised legislation. >> eric: there are a few changes. $25 billion, which is for his wall, which is basically what he wants, there it is, there's a path for citizenship right now, maybe as you said that would change for the 1.8 million dreamers and there at the bottom, end the diversity visa lottery system and the so-called
2:09 pm
chain migration. it seems that the president is getting a lot of what he wants. >> he gets border security, he gets a end to chain migration. he would be giving moderates something on the dreamers and he would give them something as well. so this is a compromise. this is what congress usually does. the problem is, a lot of the republican party is divided between themselves and the question is can the party stay united on this compromise package. >> eric: do you think it can? >> president trump is the key variable on this. he has the ability on tuesday after the meeting to get the party in line, to keep the conservatives on-board with the compromise and hope the moderates stay with the leadership. >> eric: the policy that's been separating children from their families, the outrage and controversy over this is growing. nancy pelosi will be at the border on monday, meeting with families whose children have been separated. this is being criticized. >> it's becoming a political
2:10 pm
problem for republicans to the point where the president is blaming the democrats for the issue even though it's jeff session whose is choosing to prosecute with the no tolerance policy. >> eric: it is the administration policy and he can change it with a phone call. >> that's right. this legislation is dealing with some of the kids who are separated. there's a huge political divide and i don't think democrats could support any policy that didn't deal with this issue en masse. >> eric: do you think this will grow? we see criticism, cardinal dolan and franklin graham has criticized the policy. let me read you what the american academy of pea ya pedis says about the policy. the doctor said i have seen this with my own eyes. separating children from parents contradicts everything we stand for add pediatricians,
2:11 pm
protecting and promoting children's health. highly stressful experiences like family separation can cause i reparable harm, detecting a child's brain and affecting short and long-term health. this type of prolonged exposure to serious stress can carry life-long consequences for children. do you see this then becoming a political issue when you've got democrats piling on and more criticism? >> it's a big political have your neavulnerability for presit trump and the white house knows it. franklin graham is criticizing the policy, saying it has to change, you know there's a division within the republican party ranks. president trump is trying to blame the democrats. the legislation could end up dealing with some of the policy that separates kids from families. i think the longer this lasts, the bigger political hit republicans will be taking. >> eric: one of the bills, at least this addresses that, so perhaps they'll have a bill at the end of the week hand that
2:12 pm
will put an end to the policy. we'll see. josh, good to see you, thank you. >> arthel: michael horowitz will testify before congress next week about his report on the clinton e-mail investigation. the 500 plus page document is a thorough review of how the fbi handled the probe during the 2016 campaign. president trump says the report exonerates him but he disagrees with its conclusion. >> well, the end result was wrong. there was total bias, when you look at peter strzok and what he said about me, when you look at comey, all this moves. i guess it's interesting, it was a pretty good report and then i say that the i.g. blew it at the very end with that statement. >> arthel: molly hinenberg is in washington. some republicans want to know why peter strzok still has a job at the bureau. >> republicans say they want to know what peter strzok meant when he said, quote, we'll stop it, referring to trump winning
2:13 pm
the 2016 election. in newly released texts between him and lisa page, they discuss the possibility of trump winning. here's a text from august 2016. page says -- he's never going to become president, right? strzok says no, he's not. we'll stop it. that's raising questions about lawmakers. >> he's the key player. he's the l central figure throughout this entire narrative, ran the clinton investigation, was the lead investigator on the russia investigation. he's the central character. i think those sequence of text messages are important. remember, peter strzok opens the russian investigation on july 31st, eight days later we have the text message that we saw in the report. we will stop trump from being president. >> reporter: fbi director christopher wray and justice department inspectser general michael horowitz will answer questions about this report on monday.
2:14 pm
horowitz testifies before the house oversight committee on tuesday. arthel. >> arthel: what are democrats taking from this report? >> reporter: at first they loved him but now democrats are pointing to the report as evidence that former fbi director jim comey tipped the scales against hillary clinton. the i.g. report criticizes comey for quote, ad hoc decision making in disclosing on october 28, 2016 that some of hillary clinton's e-mails had been found on the laptop of former democratic congressman anthony weiner who was married to a clinton aide. that bothers some democrats who say it helped donald trump win. >> he is the president of the united states. he was elected by the people of the united states according to the system and according to laws. at the same time jim comey did something on october 28th that caused public confidence to be eroded in hillary clinton's
2:15 pm
candidacy. >> reporter: the report calls comey's actions extraordinary and insubordinate in discussing publicly the clinton e-mail investigation in july 2016 and announcing she would not be prosecuted without clearing all of that with his supervisors. arthel. >> arthel: molly, thank you. >> eric: we are following breaking news out of moscow. at least eight people were injured when a taxi cab plowed into pedestrians near red square. the streets were crowded with tourists and visitors from the world cup. some of the victims are from mexico. one person is said to be in serious condition at the moment. police say the driver of the taxi jumped the curb and ran into the pedestrians and then he tried to leave the scene. authorities say he told them that he lost control of his car. right now it's not clear if it was an accident or intentional as police in moscow investigate. >> arthel: what's next for the fbi and justice department after the extensive inspector general report, how the current director
2:16 pm
of the fbi responded. plus, two kansas deputies shot and killed during an inmate transfer. how they're being remembered. (vo) at pro plan, we believe nutrition is full of possibilities to improve your pet's life. we are redefining what nutrition can do. because the possibility of a longer life and a better life is the greatest possibility of all. purina pro plan. nutrition that performs. the digital divide is splitting this country. we have parents who are trying to get their kids off of too much social media and computers, and then we have parents who would only hope

their children have access. middle school is a really key transition point, right. the stakes start changing. students begin to really start thinking about their futures. what i like about verizon's approach is that it's not limited to just giving kids new tools, it's really about empowering educators to teach in different ways, and exposing kids to more active forms of learning. giving technology is not a total solution. teaching technology, now that is. pwell, esurance makes finding thatthe right coverage easy. in fact, drivers who switched from geico to esurance saved an average of $412. that's auto and home insurance for the modern world. esurance, an allstate company. click or call.

2:19 pm
it was a pretty good report and then i say that the i.g.
2:20 pm
blew it at the very end with that statement because when you read the report, it was almost like comey, he goes point after point about how guilty hillary is and then he says we're not going to do anything about it. the report, the i.g. report was a horror show. i thought that one sentence of conclusion was ridiculous. >> arthel: the 500 page report from the justice department watchdog on the fbi's handling of the clinton e-mail case is sparking heated reaction across the country. the fbi director, christopher wray, says the bureau is making changes and will hold employees accountable. >> the i.g. report makes clear we've got work to do. but let's also be clear on the scope of this report. it's focused on a specific set of events back in 2016 and a small number of fbi employees connected to those events. nothing in this report impugns
2:21 pm
the integrity of our workforce as a whole or the fbi as an institution. >> arthel: joining me now, a senior fellow at the heritage foundation and a former justice department official. hans, good to have you here. >> thanks for having me. >> arthel: we'll jump right in. what did the i.g. report say about the fbi and doj as an institution as a whole? >> well, look, that 500 page report is permeated with showing partisan bias and to use the words of the i.g., a gross lack of professionalism. and that shows a cultural problem inside the fbi. christopher wray says it was limb toad a small number of people. he may not have read the section for example where it says that dozens of fbi agents and officials disclosed nonpublic
2:22 pm
information about confidential law enforcement investigation to reporters and did so apparently in exchange for gifts like golf outings and tickets to sporting events. that shows a problem throughout the fbi, particularly not just among agents but also among the leadership. >> arthel: you're a former doj official. how many people work for the fbi? >> well, look, it's true that there are thousands of people that work for the fbi. but the fact that you had this generally widespread problem for example of leakage shows that there's a problem. >> arthel: we're talking about 12 people. he said there are thousands who work there. you heard christopher wray say they came to conclusions in the report but it does no way reflect on the department as a whole but i want to move on. i want to ask you, does the i.g. report render the mueller investigation biased, thus
2:23 pm
faulty? >> it raises big question about the mueller investigation. there's a line in the middle of the report where the i.g. says that it's unclear whether peter strzok's obvious bias caused him to de-emphasize the clinton investigation in order to switch to the russia investigation. that's just one little inkling of the kind of problems that it shows may be there with that russia investigation. >> arthel: does the i.g. report totally e exonerate the presidet from allegations being investigated by robert mueller? >> well, no, because it doesn't deal with that issue. but i think it raises a lot of questions about the mueller investigation and i think it raises questions about the fbi that people like peter strzok haven't been immediately terminated. instead, -- >> arthel: he's was taken off that investigation right away. >> yeah, but look, again, using
2:24 pm
the i.g.'s words, the gross lack of professionalism amongst the agents assigned to the clinton investigation including peter strzok, they should have been immediately terminated, not referred to to the bureaucratic office of professional responsibility. and i think that's something that congress frankly ought to demand. all of the fbi agents who engaged in unethical and unprofessional behavior in this case need to be fired and terminated immediately. that's a lesson that's got to be seen throughout the fbi. >> arthel: what does the i.g. report, hans, say about hillary clinton e-mails and her e-mail server? >> well, the i.g. is very careful to say that he's not substituting his judgment to look at the prosecutor y'all decisions made. but i think the report makes it clear that agents limited the investigation. there were lek to electronic des they didn't try to get from hillary clinton.
2:25 pm
they there were a lot of things they didn't do. they granted immunity when they didn't need to. they could have subpoenaed documents. they seemed to have gone soft in the hillary investigation, much different from the very hard stance they're taking in the mueller investigation. >> arthel: so you, again, a former doj official, you were there in the inside, you don't seem to have a lot of confidence in the departments now. what changed from when you were there and now? >> well, it's very clear that barack obama and under him eric holder and loretta lynch poll it sized the department of justice in a way it had never been before. >> arthel: how did they do that? >> they did that by allowing partisanship to come into the decision making on investigations and prosecutions and i think you see the same thing has happened to the. >> arthel: do you think they should have called off comey from going out a few weeks, a
2:26 pm
month before the election and give that extensive report on hillary clinton and then going, yeah, but all of that and then she's not going to be prosecuted. so it appears that the democrats at that particular time were sort of caught between a rock and hard place in not wanting to seem to tip the scales in favor of hillary clinton at that time. maybe they were trying to exercise fairness. >> the mistake that james comey made was it wasn't his decision whether or not to prosecute. the fbi's job is to investigate. that investigation goes to the attorney general. it's the attorney general that makes that decision whether or not to prosecute. so comey was insubordinate. he broke rules on how to handle a case. >> arthel: i appreciate you answering the questions. i apologize i didn't have the other side so i had to ask the questions myself. thank you for answering.
2:27 pm
listen, there's a lot to be parted out of this whole investigation. we'll be analyzing its for weeks and months to come and years, i'm sure. >> it's 600 pages. >> arthel: thank you, happens. there is more fallout from the inspector general's report. tomorrow, it's happening on fox news sunday, chris wallace will sit down with trey gowdy, the chairman of the house oversight committee. the show airs at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. eastern on fox. check your local listing for air times on your local fox steakses tooetoo. >> eric: president trump slapped new tariffs on china. beijing says well, we're going to respond. we'll take a look how this could hurt our tech industry. and there's tragedy to tell you about in the heartland. two sheriff's deputies shot and killed in the line of duty.

2:32 pm
>> eric: there are heavy hearts today in kansas as the sheriff's department mourns the loss of two deputies killed in the line of duty. we have the latest from los angeles now. >> reporter: right now they are trying to figure out how an inmate not only broke free from the deputies but how investigators say the suspect managed to shoot and kill two deputies. investigators saying deputy patrick rohrer and theresa king were transporting an inmate on friday from the courthouse back to jail. at some point the deputies were overcome by the inmate and then shot and letter died. the sheriff's department says they believe the suspect grabbed a deputy's gun and used it to
2:33 pm
kill both deputies. the mayor spoke earlier saying the deputies were an asset to the community. >> we must look to the sacrifices of deputy rohrer, deputy king, and believe what they believed. that the fight for goodness and truth and justice is worth our very lives every day of our lives and we must be ever-vigilant for the battle. >> reporter: rohrer and king were transported to a nearby hospital but their injuries were too severe. rohrer had been on the force for seven years, king served for 13. both leave behind children. eric. >> eric: the inmate who got ahold of the gun, what is his status? >> reporter: we're trying to get more information on that. but the other part, everyone is trying to figure out exactly how he allegedly got his hands on a gun in the first place and broke free. the sheriff's department said to
2:34 pm
the best of its knowledge the shooting happened in the secured gated area at the courthouse. they're telling us they believe that the suspect was handcuffed during the attack. >> from what i observed and what i believe the investigation will show is they followed procedure. so we always evaluate procedures but we did confirm that they did follow proper procedure. >> reporter: investigators say the suspect was also shot during the incident but right now is stable. the sheriff's department is organizing a candlelight vigil tomorrow night outside city hall saying the deputy's families need support. >> eric: just so tragic. >> arthel: escalating tensions between the u.s. and china over trade after president trump imposed tariffs on $50 billion worth of chinese goods and china announced it will do the same to u.s. products. the move is raising serious concerns in silicon valley. tom pakar from our san francisco
2:35 pm
affiliate has more. >> reporter: the president says he wants to lower the amount of money going offshore to pay for imports as well as try to return jobs to america. while many support that idea, many do not and say no one wins a trade war. from walmart to amazon, from wholesale to equipment dealers, importers of a huge range of targeted products and components will either have to eat the tariffs or pass them onto customers. whoever pays, the federal treasury will pocket the money. >> a tariff is a tax on american consumers. >> reporter: carl gordino says high technology overwhelmingly is dependent on imports and exports and it may lose both ways. >> what's amazing about tariffs is they're like a boomerang. we throw them and they come back and hit us in the head. >> reporter: besides having to pay more for what they import,
2:36 pm
high tech companies will lose overseas sales. >> they'll attack us back. when they put prices on our goods, then our goods are going to go up in cost. that's going to hurt every american family. it's going to hurt jobs in america. >> reporter: beyond tech, agricultural experts say for every three rows of soybeans planted in the us, one row, fully one-third of the entire harvest goes to china, 33 million tons. but at least 300,000 u.s. soybean farmers, let alone their employees, many farms and farm jobs could be lost, an economic boom for brazil and argentina. >> it would put some people out of business, including maybe ourselves. we can't just keep going without nothing. >> reporter: the weight category of aircraft the chinese targeted directly targets boeing's biggest seller, the kind of planes southwest airlines flies. the average price of a 737 is
2:37 pm
now about $115 million but it would climb to $144 million. that's $29 million more than comparable european airbus which china would likely buy instead. >> this is not just bad for business. this is bad for individuals and families. >> arthel: that is tom pakar reporting. thanks, tom. i'm going to speak to people in north korea and i'm going to speak to my people in north korea. i have a good relationship with kim jong un. that's a very important thing. i can now -- wait. i can now call him. i can now say well, we have a problem. i told him, i gave him a very direct number. he can now call me if he has any difficulty. i can call him. we have communication. it's a very good thing. people are shocked that this is the kind of -- they thought trump was going to get in and start throwing bombs all over the place. it's actually the opposite. >> eric: that's president on the white house driveway talking to
2:38 pm
peter doocy and the other white house reporters after he talked to steve doocy. he was talking bouts his planned phone call that's going to happen tomorrow with kim jong un. this of course follows the historic summit with the north korean dictator. secretary of state mike pompeo says a lot of work has to be done with the regime including being able to identify its nuclear facilities. >> we have a reasonable understanding. it is incredibly important that we get a full understanding of that as quickly as possible and as part of the efforts that will be undertaken in the weeks ahead. we will work with the north koreans to come to have a fuller understanding of that so that we can begin to execute together the commitments that president trump and chairman kim made. >> eric: we have a reasonable understanding, not a full one. we have the former national
2:39 pm
security advisor. this is where the rubber hits the road. are we going to get concrete moves, specific steps by the north koreans to open the nuclear sites to international inspectors and start the process as is pledged of denuclearization? >> that's the $64,000 question, eric. we've been at this for 25 years with the north. we've had lots of statements in the past that we're medded in hn that direction, a verified, complete, irreversible denuclearization and yet we never get there. the promise of what the president did this week is that he established this personal relationship with kim jong un. that's something dramatically new. but we still haven't yet actually advanced the ball on this goal that's most important to the united states of denuclearization. that's the challenge that secretary pompeo has got to get after and i think he needs to get after it very quickly.
2:40 pm
we've got to see some results on what we need from north korea sooner rather than later. >> eric: what would you like to see? >> well, i think the first thing we've got to -- i would like to simply see a declaration from chairman kim to his people in korean that at the end of this process with the united states, however long it takes, in exchange for viable security and economic guarantees from the international community, north korea will have no nuclear program whatsoever or ballistic missile program. after that, i think they've got to come clean with a full declaration of what they've got because as secretary bomb poi yow says we don't -- pompeo says, we don't know whether they've got 10 nuclear weapons or 60 nuclear weapons. that's the dramatic variance we have in understanding the full scope and breadth of this nuclear infrastructure that the north has built up. so we first have to have a clear
2:41 pm
understanding of what they've got, then we've got to be able to get in there with our inspectors to vair kne verify ir >> eric: should they provide a list in they've got nuclear war heads, production facilities, labs, ballistic missile manufacturing sites and launch sites. do you expect that they will actually hand that over or that it will be more of the same of their past behavior, they'll just spin and wait and delay, this old game, watch the red, watch the black, watch the red, watch the black. >> if history is any guide, that's exactly the path that we're headed on. that is the danger of the process we're embarked on now, that the north as in the past will simply play for time, they'll reduce their international isolation, and gradually they will begin with this charm offensive to erode
2:42 pm
the international sanction that's the chinese, the south koreans, the russians will all begin to drop off in terms of their enforcement of sanctions and then the north over time will be free and clear to continue to build up the nuclear program, all the while getting economic concessions. the hope of what the president has done is that they have got to deliver a complete and final declaration of the full scope of their nuclear program that the united states and our other partners internationally can fully verify with inspectors on the ground. that's the goal that we've got to achieve and we can't allow this process as it has in the past to simply drag on for months and months and months without satisfaction of key american concerns that is strategic decision has been made by kim jong un and communicated to his people that the jig is up and north korea in exchange for these guarantees from the west

its critics. smaller airlines and private plane owners say the technology will be too expensive. next gen also encompasses privatizing some air traffic control, now run by the faa. a proposal has some sceptics in powerful places. congress is now the main obstacle for the faa to give up control. >> absolutely. the faa needs a stabilized funding stream which they don't have today as as they start and stop programs. >> reporter: the funding stream in congress is too erratic for major changes like next gen. inside the air traffic conol tower in charlotte, douglas kennedy, fox news. >> arthel: for the golf groupies, ahead a live update on the u.s. open and a surprising look at who is still in the running and who is not. hey! we didn't have a homeowners claim last year so allstate is giving us money back on our bill.

3:00 pm
eric: and we start with a fox news alert as probig issues are on -- two big issues are on the front burner in washington, votes expected on two republican-backed bills, meanwhile fears of a trade war after the president announced plans to impose new tariffs on china prompting a tit for tat response from beijing. hello, everyone, i'm eric shawn. arthel: and i'm arthel neville. president trump taking aim at a familiar foe on immigration. democrats. tweeting: democrats can fix their forced family break-up at the border by working with republicans on new legislation for a change. this is why we need more republicans elected in november.
3:01 pm
democrats are good at only three things, high taxes, high crime and obstruction. sad. garrett tenney is live on the north lawn, and we'll tee up immigration first. >> reporter: the president made a lot of waves on friday when he suggested he would not sign a compromise immigration bill that the house has been working on for a couple of months with the support of the white house. the white house later clarified his comments and said that the president would support either of the bills that are expected to receive a vote next week in the house. that initial confusion though forced gop leadership to hold back on their efforts to rally support for those bills, and on "fox & friends" the president reiterated what he needs to see in an immigration bill in order to sign et. >> i need a bill that gives this country tremendous border security. i have to have that. we have to -- >> gotta have the wall? does that mean the wall? >> we don't have the wall, there's no bill. we have to have catch and release. >> reporter: fox news has learned president trump now plans to meet with house republicans tuesday afternoon to
3:02 pm
discuss immigration and to reassure them of his support for their efforts. now, that is crucial, to have the president's support here, because all along the goal has been to have a bill that can actually become a law. and senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has said he will not consider giving any bill that the house passes a vote in the senate unless president trump has indicated he will sign that bill into a law. arthel? arthel: hey, garrett, so what's the white house response to let's talk china now and these retaliatory tariffs from that country. >> reporter: yeah. well, on friday the president announced he was enacting $50 billion worth of tariffs on chinese goods coming into the u.s., and this is after china has been going on for several months now, rounds of trade negotiations with the u.s. to try to avert a trade war. china has now responded to these new u.s. tariffs by imposing $50 billion worth of tariffs of its own on u.s. goods. these latest talks though, they seem to have not been progressing to the extent that
3:03 pm
the white house would like, and that is why these new tariffs are comingnto place. yesterday president trump defended these aggressive moves by the u.s. in these trade negotiations. >> no, the trade war was started many years ago by them, the united states lost. >> you say we're on the losing end -- >> well, no, there is no trade war. they've taken so much. so last year $375 billion in trade deficit. we had -- with china. we had overall over $800 billion over a period of years, each year close to $800 billion in losses on trade. not gonna happen anymore. it's not gonna happen. can't happen. >> reporter: the white house was not caught off guard by these retaliatory tariffs coming from china and even before announcing these tariffs, the white house said it has already prepared another set of tariffs that it can enact if china moves forward with retaliatory tariffs, so more tariffs on the way for china. expect those in the next week or two at least.
3:04 pm
arthel? arthel: garrett tenney, thank you very much for that update there at the white house. meanwhile, the trump administration is receiving some criticism after a new report found that nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents at the border in the past six weeks. here's house minority leader nancy pelosi on the president's immigration policies. >> this is the first time in in this era that we've had a president that has rejected newcomers to our country. president obama instituted the daca program because congress had not acted. but president ronald reagan, in 1986 following the passage of the immigration bill, president reagan said congress did not go far enough, so he instituted his family fairness. arthel: joining me now is jeff mason, white house correspondent for reuters. jeff, if i could start with a couple of very basic questions to a very are complicated
3:05 pm
matter. how did we get here? [laughter] >> well, i would start by saying we got here by the fact that president trump made this a huge issue during his campaign, and it's been a big issue for a long time. i mean, president obama worked to try and do immigration reform while he was in office, president george w. bush did the same. president trump came in with a very, very hard-line view on immigration, and that was very appealing to his supporters, particularly his promise of a wall. and then to get to specifically where we are and the story we're talking about now with these children, attorney general jeff sessions about six weeks ago announced a zero tolerance policy for people who cross the border illegally, and that means that everyone is being prosecuted. and when parents come with children -- because they are about to be prosecuted, the children are being separated from their participants. arthel: dispersed about a hundred holding places -- >> yeah. arthel: not sure what you call
3:06 pm
them, holding places in about 14 states. so what can be done to correct the situation, and who can fix it? >> well, it depends a little bit on who you ask. the democrats will say you can just stop this policy, and that's true. i mean, the attorney general could decide to not have that 100% no-tolerance policy, and that would ease up those restrictions. the president has said, has tried to blame the democrats for the policy by saying that they're not cooperating with republicans, and democrats, in fact, are not big fans of the immigration bills that are coming up in the house of representatives next week. one of which does -- arthel: and, yeah, i want to put some of that up there that the president spelled out in a tweet recently. >> sure. arthel: because the president said, listen, he is willing to sign off on a proposal that has democratic support, and republican leadership support, as long as his border wall is paid in full by american
3:07 pm
taxpayers, catch and release is ended, family migration is done away with, the vista lottery -- visa lottery is stamped out, and merit-based immigration is implemented. where does this put internal negotiations between president trump, republican leaders in congress and those on the democratic side of the aisle? >> well, there's not a whole lot of negotiations going on with the democrats. the republicans are working on a couple of different bills. one is more conservative and has a smaller chance of getting passed. one is a more moderate version that is a compromise bill between moderates and more conservatives in the republican party that is supported and led really by house leadership. and that was where there was a little bit of confusion on friday during the president's interview with fox and friends, because he indicated he would not sign the more moderate bill. but as you reported earlier, the white house came out and clarified that he would. so in that bill, there are some provisions to address these children that would allow them to stay with their parents while
3:08 pm
in dhs custody, but it would not necessarily allow them to continue staying with them once or if they are prosecuted by the department of justice. so the democrats have come out and said that's unacceptable, and that's not enough. arthel: and, by the way, the president is going to speak to house republican leaders and other members of congress on the republican side tuesday afternoon. so we'll definitely have the report on that meeting for you. >> it'll be a big week in the immigration -- arthel: very big week. meanwhile, we're circling back to the start of this particular segment, jeff, when we popped up th president's, his early -- most latest tweet. i ask you, why is president trump claiming that these are the consequences of a law and a democratic law? >> well, i think what he's referring to there is that he doesn't feel that the democrats are playing ball, as it were, or cooperating with republicans in reform and in working towards a new immigration system that would bring the things that he has promised as a candidate and
3:09 pm
since being president. and that's his way, basically, of sort of casting the blame on the opposition party. and the democrats, of course, reject that. arthel: so is immigration overhaul such political poison nothing will get done between now and november 6th for the midterm elections? >> well, i think the fact that republicans are working so hard on it right now suggests that they are concerned that it will be very difficult for them politically in november if there isn't something done. a, you've got this issue with the children which is getting a lot of attention and is boiling up around the country, boiling up in the white house press room last week. also you have the issue of daca which is the program that helps young so-called dreamers stay in the country without being deported -- arthel: jeff -- >> all of those things could be politically difficult for republicans in november if they don't address it. arthel: and very quickly, what is going to happen to those children in short order, do we know? >> the children that are being separated from their parents? arthel: yes.
3:10 pm
>> i can't tell you any more than has been said. i mean, as far as i know until the policy changes, then they are, they are in government custody. i know that they have said that the kids will be reunited with other family members in the u.s. if that is possible, but i certainly can't say how all of the children are being addressed. arthel: but also now it's my understanding that the administration is wanting to have fingerprints from these potential, the family members that the kids may be unified with. is so that may discourage some people to even take those kids in. so it still remains a complicated issue. is that your understanding? >> well, i can't tell you about the immigrants -- excuse me, about the fingerprints, but i can say that is certainly part of the strategy, is to discourage people from illegally crossing the border. and this is from the perspective of attorney general sessions and others a major deterrent. arthel: and he made that very clear when he made his announcement in arizona.
3:11 pm
>> he sure did. arthel: thank you. >> my pleasure. eric: the department of justice inspector general, michael horowitz, he will testify before congress next week about his investigation of the clinton e-mail probe. the 500-page document reviewed how the fbi handled that investigation in the heat of the 2016 campaign. and, you know, it raised plenty of concerns and questions but concluded there was no political bias in the official actions by these three people. but there was bias against then-candidate trump revealed in more anti-trump text messages between lisa page there on the right, the fbi lawyer, and agent peter strzok there on the left. molly hennen burg live in -- henneberg live in washington with more. >> reporter: michael horowitz will testify before the senate judiciary committee on monday and the house oversight committee on tuesday. fbi director christopher wray will join him on monday. in part of his report, horowitz said political bias didn't influence the bureau's work, but
3:12 pm
he still referred five fbi employees for investigation after discovering messages like these from the day after the 2016 presidential election. it was between people who worked at the fbi. i am numb, i can't stop crying. that makes me more sad is, like, what happened? you promised me this wouldn't happen, you promised. and they went on, i am so stressed about what i could have done differently. >> don't stress, one of that mattered. the fbi's influence, i don't know, we broke the momentum. and all this troubles republicans and democrats. >> the fact that you had fbi agents who were making political commentary back and forth, lady justice is supposed to be blindfolded, right? well, in this case that blindfold was off, and there are are people playing politics inside the fbi against donald trump. >> reporter: still, kucinich the -- says the fbi also hurt the democrats' chances of winning this 2016 when james
3:13 pm
comey disclosed that some of clinton's e-mails had been found on the laptop of former democratic congressman anthony wiener who was married to clinton aide huma abedin. eric: meanwhile, republicans want answers about one specific text from peter strzok? >> reporter: well, there's a number of them, but this is a new text meaning not previously released between fbi agent peter strzok and former -- now-former fbi lawyer lisa page who were having an affair and communicated using their work phones to hide that affair from their spouses. strzok reassures page prior to the election that trump would not win with. he wrote, quote, we'll stop it. one gop congressman wants to know more about that. >> there's some key questions like, number one, why is peter strzok still employed at the fbi? all the other major players are gone. comey's been fired, deputy director mccabe fired, lied three times under oath. jim baker, former general
3:14 pm
counsel was gone, was demoted before he left the fbi, lisa page was demoted, she's left. comey's chief of staff has also left. why is peter strzok still there in light of what we learned from the i.g.'s report. >> reporter: congressman jordan says strzok was the lead on the russian collusion investigation in 2016 and then sent the quote, we'll stop it text, eight days later. eric? eric: all right, molly, thanks so much. arthel? arthel: we have a fox news alert are. with security at the world cup already ramped up in russia, there was a scare after a taxi plowed into a crowd near moscow's red square injuring at least eight people. bryan llenas is in our new york city newsroom with the details. >> reporter: hi, arthel. the interfax russian news agency is reporting the taxi driver is now telling russian police he fell asleep behind the wheel, causing his car to go onto a busy sidewalk, mowing down pedestrians at the red square in
3:15 pm
moscow. eight people are injured, two of the injured are mexicans. the streets of moscow are festive and packed with viewing parties and world cup fans from everywhere. these are photos from the scene, but horrific video online shows the taxi driver coming to an almost complete stop before it swerves to its right, accelerating onto a sidewalk, hitting pedestrians for five long seconds before the car stops. and then the driver just runs out of the cab as about a dozen bystanders chase him. the driver was detained. he's a citizen of the former soviet remix of kyrgyzstan, and he told police it was not intentional. russian authorities have opened a criminal investigation and are characterizing it as a traffic accident. witnesses find that hard to believe. >> translator: i have the feeling he did it deliberately, because he was in the traffic jam with the cars going really slow. how can you lose control of the
3:16 pm
wheel, push the gas and drive into the crowd in. >> reporter: now, this incident comes just a day after the u.s. state department issued a travel advisory urging americans to reconsider traveling to russia for the world cup because of the heightened danger for terrorist attacks. the state department warns americans who do, well, they choose to go -- if they do choose to go, they may not get the help they expect. this is part of the statement, part of this advisory. quote: due to the russian government-imposed reduction on u.s. diplomatic personnel in russia, the u.s. government has reduced ability to provide services to u.s. citizens. more than 88,000 americans have bought world cup tickets in russia, that's the second most of any nation, only second to the russians. arthel. arthel: bryan llenas, thanks. eric: there's a new crackdown on illegal immigration. the steps one european country is taking. we'll tell you about that. plus, that trade dispute that's escalating between us and

3:23 pm
you didn't talk about this but i want to ask you. if this is a negotiating tactic, is it a good one? can it be effective? and where's the risk? >> yes. and primarily, i do think it is a negotiating tactic, and that's why i think it's actually a very good idea because i think that for too long china has very much been using trade and and economic goals very much as part of a larger part of its foreign policy. and it's very much been using it as an overall national strategy. and i think that is primarily what has made china, frankly, that has been china's advantage and what has allowed china to grow so rapidly and really challenge the united states. certainly, what has allowed china to become the second largest economic power. and really challenge the united states. arthel: yes. and as you well know, china is,
3:24 pm
you know, trying to become the dominant, dominate the technology sector. and that's what president trump is trying to put a stop to. >> exactly. arthel: big picture, how will this affect u.s. relations with china immediately and then in the short-term future? >> well, i think certainly what it's done is walk the leadership of china up. and it has certainly startled beijing. most certainly china was not expecting this. and china's reaction is, obviously, to react immediately. china certainly was prepared for it in the sense that it had a strategy of short term, immediate reaction. now it has responded, so this is the so-called tit for tat. and i think that this is the test case. we will simply have to see what will happen. now we are in this game of chicken. i think everybody's characterizing this as a war. i simply, frankly, don't think that's necessarily helpful, to
3:25 pm
call this a war. we can call it that if we want to, i don't think that's help. essentially, this is what china has been preparing for. for china, this is part of its strategy. arthel: yeah, well -- >> that's right. but for us i think this is our test case. and if we have the guts to stick with it, i think this is what we should be doing to see exactly to test china, to see if china itself can also continue to play this game. i think, frankly, the chinese system may be too fragile to stick with it and really to -- i think that the united states, frankly, is probably strong enough to withstand and to really stay with it. arthel: so is there a geopolitical risk or reward at stake for the u.s.? >> well, the risks are very high, certainly. but if we can stick with it, then the rewards are also very, very high. arthel: and, of course, we don't know exactly what's going to happen because you have got the potential fallout, real-life impact on soybean farmers.
3:26 pm
what could that possibly be? >> well, of course. with trade there are always winners and losers. and i think that is always the risk. but that's exactly the point. i mean, look, the united states -- we are a very rich economy, and we've become very rich economy precisely through trade. but so has china. china has become rich precisely because it has opened up. and if china had stayed a closed economy, it would not nearly be as rich. i mean, president trump just returned after meeting with north korea, and that is exactly what president trump has offered north korea. open up and you too can become rich. arthel: so let me -- >> that's precisely the point. arthel: i want to jump in with a final question for you, doctor, because you said you believe for the u.s. the rewards can be great to stick with in the situation. listen, the tariffs don't take effect until july 6th, so what's next? short answer for me, please. do you think this is going to escalate or get resolved? >> well, again, we simply don't
3:27 pm
know. but it will escalate if china decides that it is willing to take the risks by really going hardball, and it's going to withstand all of the pressure is and it's going to continue to escalate. but if china backs down, then i think the rewards will be very, very high for the united states. meaning that china will back down and begin to change its behavior, and i think that's what president trump is trying to get china to do ultimately. arthel: so you're are saying the u.s. is in a position of strength. we have to leave it there. thank you very much, d.hwang. >> thank you. ashing. eric: major fighting in yemen. we'll take a look. plus, tragedy in the heartland. two sheriff's deputies paid the ultimate price following a deadly confrontation while they were transfer aring an inmate. since my stroke, he hasn't left my side.

3:33 pm
deputies, killing them both. >> from what i observed and what i believe the investigation will show is they followed proper procedure. is so we always evaluate procedures, but we did confirm that they did follow proper procedure. >> reporter: they a also say this happened in a secure gated area at the courthouse and believe the gun was possibly taken from one of the deputies. to their best knowledge, investigators believe the inmate was cuffed at the time. eric? eric: and how is the community reacting tonight? >> reporter: well, the kansas city, kansas, mayor says both deputies will not be forgotten and that they are heroes who died protecting their community. but there's also an overwhelming sense of shock being that it happened in a usually secured area of the courthouse. investigators saying deputy patrick rourke and deputy teresa king were transporting the suspect and somehow were overcome by the inmate. deputy rohr had been on the force for seven years, king served for thirteen years.
3:34 pm
both leave behind children. >> t.k. and patrick gave their lives for us, and they did so fully aware and willing to do so. >> deputy king and deputy rohr did not just offer to us a total gift of themselves yesterday, they did it each and every day that they stepped out into our community. >> reporter: the sheriff's department is organizing a candlelight vigil for tomorrow night outside of city hall saying right now the deputies' families need support. eric: a reminder of the sacrifices of our nation's law enforcement officers who every day and every hour protect us. thank you. arthel? arthel: indeed, eric. well, saudi-led forces seizing control of an international airport in a rebel-held port city in yemen. the airport is a major strategic prize in the western part of that country and a gateway for humanitarian aid.
3:35 pm
>> reporter: iran and saudi arabia, which is getting some help from the united states, are in a proxy war in yemen. on one side of the9 battle you've got those saudi-led forces working together with the government of yemen which has been in exile and also getting some assistance from the u.s. in terms of targeting and refueling for saudi aircraft. they're trying to take that airport. on the other side, you've got the iranian-led forces. they're working together with the houthi rebels. they've held that airport for a good while, and they want to continue to do so. why is it so important? well, strategically, obviously, it's important for the war in yemen, but it's also where 70% of the food in the country comes through. think about that. two out of three people in yemen -- and this is a country of 27 million people -- rely on humanitarian assistance and food that comes through that anticipate. and aid groups are concerned that if there is a lull or a pause in that food getting through because of protracted
3:36 pm
fighting, that will mean more hunger. >> we are very fearful that any kind of blockage of the free flow of humanitarian food, also commercial stocks of particularly food and fuel could have a major impact on people who are already highly vulnerable. >> reporter: the worst humanitarian crisis in the world right now is in yemen. 8.5 million people -- that's roughly the population of new york city -- are on the verge of starvation there. arthel? arthel: ryan, thank you very much for that report. eric? eric: wow. well, in his new book three days in moscow, bret baier takes a role played by the former president, ronald reagan, in bringing the cold war to the end and subsequent collapse of the soviet union. bret focuses on that fourth and final summit between president reagan and mr. gorbachev. there's a special hour highlighting those three

explosions and huge plumes of rising toxic gas. eric: president trump, we are told, will have a phone conversation tomorrow with north korean dictator kim jong un. this, of course, follows their historic summit trying to rid the regime of nuclear weapons. the president did say that another issue was discussed during their meeting, that of human rights. but critics are saying human rights should have been more prominent during the summit and that the president was not tough enough on kim's horrific human rights abuses. here is how he responded about that. >> you have spoken so passionately about the circumstances that led to otto warm beer's death. >> yeah. >> in the same breath, you're defending kim jong un's human rights record. >> you know why? because i don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family, okay? >> well -- >> i don't want to see it, i don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family -- >> how can kim love his people if he's killing them?
3:44 pm
>> i can't speak to that. i can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement, it's great, and it's going to be great for them too. eric: so what are those abuses? professor walter hatch joins us from colby college in waterville, maine. how would you rate the human rights record of kim jong un? >> well, first, thanks for inviting me on, eric. i would say that the human rights record in north korea is perhaps the worst of any country in the world. it's truly atrocious. eric: any country? the worst? >> yeah. i can't think of another that has a worse human rights record. this is a country that has up to 200,000 prisoners detained at any one time in four different gulags around the country. people are executed right and left for being political dissidents or simply not being sufficiently loyal to the regime.
3:45 pm
kim jong un has had his uncle executed, he's had his own brother murdered. this is not a nice regime. eric: yeah, talk a bit about prisons. we have some pictures of those. they're called concentration camps, and there are even reports that if your grandfather defied the regime, defied kim's grandfather, three generations of a family could be imprisoned for their whole lives in these political prisons? >> that's one of the most remarkable things. it's not just individuals, but entire families are detained. and during these interrogations that are conducted, torture is routinely used. women are raped. again, this regime is extraordinarily bad in its human rights record. and there's an official policy of discrimination, the policy that the north korean regime uses identifies particular
3:46 pm
groups -- christians, landlords, people who are seen as somehow advantaged are under especially close surveillance. but, in fact, everybody is surveilled closely in north korea. all -- if you're lucky enough, and very few people do have access to telecommunications or the internet -- all of those kinds of communications or electronic activity are routinely monitored by bureau 27 of the state security. this is a regime that takes no chances with its people, that brooks no dissent or even mildly questioning behavior. finish. eric: state department had a pretty shocking report. let me read you some of that. it says the government engages in, quote: killings, forced labor, torture, rape, forced abortions and other sexual
3:47 pm
violation. forced labor and mass mobilizations, reeducation through a labor example camps, etc., etc. many of the country's human rights abuses underwrite their regime's weapons program, and it continues by saying that includes the force labor and those mass mobilizations, reeducation at the labor camps and and overseas labor contracts. thousands of north koreans are sent abroad every year to work in slave-like conditions earning revenue for the regime. how do we address this? does the president raise this further, stronger in his conversation tomorrow with kim, or should it be raised on a lower level? you know, he says primarily the goal is dealing with nuclear weapons, but what should we do trying to change this behavior? >> right. well, this'll sound odd coming from the director of a human rights program, you know, at colby college, i direct the oak institute for human rights. but i actually agree with the president, with president trump on this, that human rights
3:48 pm
probably should not be front and center of these negotiations. we're trying, after all, to broker some kind of peace agreement or disarmament plan, trying to persuade kim regime to improve its human rights record, i think, would not be fruitful at this point. eric: do you think -- >> on the other hand, i just don't understand the kind of discourse or rhetoric that's come from our president where he's praised kim jong un as smart and talented and funny, has said that he has the best interests of the north korean people in mind, that he loves his people, that he wants to take care of them. these kinds of statements are patently false, and i don't think they do anything but legitimize one of the world's most brutal dick a today to haves -- dictators. eric: and finally, otto
3:49 pm
warmbier, the young man who was basically murdered in prison. should the president or the administration at some point bring that case up? it is close to the president's heart, we are told, to prosecute the killers of otto warmbier? tell kim to prosecute this young man's murderers? >> again, i hate to sound cold, but i'm not sure that it makes the most sense right now to put otto warmbier's case on the table. we could also, i mean, this is what prime minister abe of japan has been pushing for, is talking about the almost 20 people from japan that were abducted, actually kidnapped from japan by north korean intelligence in the late '70s and '80s. i mean, there's so much that a united states president could insist on, but i think that needs to come after some kind of movement towards normalization of relations between these two
3:50 pm
has ill countries -- hostile countries. eric: professor walter hatch of colby college, thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much. eric: perhaps they'll focus on the nuclear issue right now, as you say, and eventually get to the human rights issue and see if there is a change in their behavior. thank you. >> that would be great, yeah. arthel: interesting. we're going to come back and talk about some of the biggest names in golf getting bumped from the u.s. open. yep, we're live on long island. ♪ ♪ your insurance rates skyrocket after a scratch
