tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  June 18, 2018 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
>> that's just the picture on his twitter feed. anyway, thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. fair, balanced and unafraid of, the stories dumb like a story hosted by sandra smith tonight starts right now. >> fifa a breaking news on the border battle and the policy to separate immigrant children from their parents. >> the united states will not be a migrant camp, and it will not be a refugee holding facility. it won't be. >> the trump administration doubling down tonight insisting it is simply enforcing immigration laws already on the books and a calling on congress to fix it. good evening everyone, i'm sandra smith. late this evening, christian nielsen appeared in the white house briefing room to clarify the misinformation about the unaccompanied illegal miners
4:01 pm
being held in detention centers. >> 10,000 of those currently in custody were sent by their parents with strangers to undertake a completely dangerous and deadly travel alone. we now care for them. we have high standards, we get them meals, education, medical care. his videos and tv's, i visited the detention centers myself. >> this as democratic lawmakers spent the day on the weekend touring those facilities that officials say could house up to 30,000 illegal children by august. >> i want to say to the president, we have 0 tolerance for your neglect and your policy of separating children from their parents. be one we have a big lineup for you tonight. hazard explains the same thing happening under the obama
4:02 pm
administration. then, we'll find out what's really happening on the ground at our southern border. we begin tonight with chief correspondent john roberts at the white house come up with top story. alderweireld good evening to you. all of this goes back to april when the united states was adopting a zero-tolerance policy with people who are entering the country illegally. basically the policy states that anyone who called crosses the border at places other than a port of entry will be subject to criminal prosecution and arrest. that means any children they arrive with will be separated from them while they are in custody, much the same way as if you were to commit a crime in the continental united states for the same reason. administration officials say they were simply enforcing the law. laws that other administrations basically ignored because it was politically unpalatable to
4:03 pm
enforce them. that provides greater border security including loopholes and immigration laws, and the president says, whether it be arresting people or changing the law, the united states cannot afford to do anything. you can't allow that to happen in the united states, not on my watch. we have the worst immigration laws in the entire world. nobody has such sad, and such a bad, and in many cases, such horrible and tough cases that you see about child separation. just remember, a country without borders is not a country at all. >> enforcing the kind, claw has created a huge backlash for the white house, some republicans
4:04 pm
and democrats critical including former first lady laura bush. she wrote, i live in a border state and i appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries but this zero-tolerance policy is cool. it's immoral and it breaks my heart. the democrats argued that the white house, the president and the administration using children as pawns to try to make congress make immigration reform. i asked kristin nielsen about that earlier today. you are calling on congress to change the law, that's the message here. they say you are using children as a leverage to try to get them to take legislative action. what do you say to that? >> i say that's a cowardly response. it's totally within their power to make the laws and change the laws. >> president obama said it allows too many people to enter
4:05 pm
the country illegally and many of them are using children as a way to get into the country. if you come across the border with a child, you will be treated differently. that all ended in april and the message does not seem to have gotten out because as kirstjen nielsen said earlier today, 50,000 plus people have been entering the country illegally over the last three months, each month. there's been a 400% increase in the number of so-called family units crossing the border. >> sandra: tom roberts, thank you. up next we have a henry cuellar. thank you for joining us tonight, if you could, respond to what you heard of there from the homeland security secretary as she took the microphone of the white house to try to clarify what appears to be a lot of confusion as to what is happening down at our border.
4:06 pm
>> henry: i'm here at the border and i spent a lot of time with a water patrol folks today. keep in mind that, from the public part of 2017 until now, these kids unaccompanied with no parents have come into the lower rio grande. 14,500. so there's no separation involved because they came in by themselves. the family units that came in on the last five weeks for example, about 1100 of them have been separated. 700 them are now with hhs and another 436 of them were temporarily separated, but they are back with the families because they were taken over to be charged in section 2325 which is coming into the united states without documentation. so we are talking about a small
4:07 pm
amount. >> sandra: so you are down there and witnessing what's happening, and trying to tell us about that. so what are you asking for? what do you want to see done? democrats are pointing the finger at president trump and his administration for what is happening. >> keep in mind, they came in the first time without documentation. that means it is a misdemeanor the second time, the first time it becomes a felony. this is a 1950 law that ronald reagan, nixon, bush, obama, they never carried this out. they carried it onto a civil process. so they are saying they are making it a criminal aspect. >> sandra: what that would be about what the homeland security secretary said today, she's faithfully enforcing the laws enacted by congress. we thank you for your time this
4:08 pm
morning, and we appreciate that you are trying to get down there to see what's happening. we have now with us, ronald botelho. everyone is looking at the situation down there including the president and saying, this is awful. and no one wants to see this happen to any children in this world. it is happening, but kirsten nielsen says they are enforcing the laws on the books and calling on congress to fix this. what do we need to know about what is happening down at that border that you witnessed on your duty every day? >> we are seeing this marked increase since the spring, since spring started. 50,000 people every month for the last three months. it's a huge increase in families and children coming unaccompanied. we have to find a way to make this border safer. we are being distracted by this
4:09 pm
humanitarian mission. we could refer all people across the border illegally, and we started to do that. that's what we are seeing being played out now. >> sandra: kirstjen nielsen makes her case. we are not sticking out families. if you are seeking asylum, go to the point of entry. she stuck by that message and showed up at the white house to address the press. she said that nick occurs if the adult is a danger to the child or if the parent is wanted for prosecution. are those the only reasons for which a child is separated with an adult or parent with them? >> that's correct.
4:10 pm
those are the only circumstances by which they would be separated, for the child was in danger or we could not prove the familial relationship at the port of entry. if they make those claims they would not be separated. >> sandra: the numbers are staggering. when you see christian nielsen saying this is up to congress to fix it, democrats are saying that this is trumps no pulp down like. this is obstruction to forming these three major loopholes in the immigration system that christian nielsen keeps talking about. what do you see that needs to happen, what do you say to congress to fix the situation down there? >> we have been advocating to deliver on the presence and promise for border security and we are asking for these loopholes to be closed. we stood up, the family detention center temporarily and they strive that holding their people until they got their due
4:11 pm
process momentarily. people thought there would be a consequence for this illegal activity. people can be held into the hearing and go through a due process that would allow people that will qualify for asylum to get it and then if those who didn't would be removed. >> can you leave us off at the thought of these children? right now, health and human services to take in the kids that have been separated has taken about 250 children per day in recent weeks. they expect to be taking about 250 kids in each day for the next two months. they could be carrying for 18,500 more children by the end of august we are told and hhs was already holding 11,500 children, which means it could hit 30,000 by august. can you tell us something about how these children are being cared for in these facilities? >> i have been to the shelters
4:12 pm
and they are very well appointed. medical staff and dental staff. there's a schoolhouse on-site and medical professionals, it's clean and neat. they get three meals per day, and it's probably not an ideal place for them to be but it's nice for kids while they are placed with the family member in the united states. most of them don't stay more than 30 or 40 days. >> sandra: it is a debate that rages on. thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. this is a fox news alert. we just learned that the house judiciary committee tends to issue a subpoena for peter strzok. at byron york and john summers here in the news that is just in. plus, the hearing on the hill.
4:13 pm
>> mr. mccabe, who is insubordinate, gets referred from prosecution, but mr. comey isn't referred by gets to keepge his pension and his book deal. some advisers have hidden and layered fees. fisher investments never does. and while some advisers are happy to earn commissions from you whether you do well or not, fisher investments fees are structured so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. fisher investments. clearly better money management. one second. barely enough time for this man to take a bite of turkey. but for cyber criminals it's plenty of time to launch thousands of attacks. luckily security analysts and watson are on his side. spotting threats faster and protecting his data with the most securely encrypted main frame in the world.

4:16 pm
>> sandra: this is a fox news
4:17 pm
alert. moments ago the house judiciary committee announced it will subpoena peter strzok. that's the fbi agent removed from the russian probe after the discovery of those anti-trumpet texts that he exchanged with fbi lawyer lisa page who was also his lover. if strzok were to testify, something's attorney indicates he's willing to do, it couldn't impact that by his probe and congressman joins us now. thank you for your time tonight. what do you think of this news? he's officially been subpoenaed to testify. >> i knew he was going to appear one way or another. we invited him to appear voluntarily or be subpoenaed. he originally said he would, and now he's been subpoenaed. he's a central witness in volta hillary clinton email investigation and of the trump-russia collusion case that
4:18 pm
became the special counsel matter. it's important that we have him appear and explain these text messages as well as his actions taken in both of these matters. so i'm excited about the fact that he will eventually appear and either answer questions, or assert his fifth amendment rights. either way it will tell us a lot about peter strzok. >> sandra: of course we have all had the chance to see and hear this text messages by now and we know that there was anti-trumpet bias in those text messages, and a lot of it. however, the ig report found that there was no evidence of this used in decision-making. >> i think the inspector general equivocated a little bit from the written word. he clearly acknowledged that peter strzok had an astonishing level of bias.
4:19 pm
he also today indicated that in at least one instance, peter strzok allowed that action to influence his bias as it relates to the recovery of 100,000 emails on anthony weiner's and huma abedin's laptop that were not supposed to be there. so i thought he opened the door today to the idea that bias really did impact both of these very important investigations. so you know, we all want the opportunity to get to the truth. i think that peter strzok's credibility ultimately will impact not just the hillary clinton email matter, but the trump/russia investigation. sandra, the most important thing you understand is that peter strzok was the person of the fbi put in charge of investigating donald trump. the guy who hated donald trump is much as anyone who's had not
4:20 pm
a single american should vote for him and talked about getting him impeached once he became president was the one collecting evidence and formulating a plan against donald trump. so he needs to, and account for the things he has said and the things he has done and we are going to make him do that one way or another. >> sandra: does at a and surprise you that peter strzok still has a job at the fbi? obviously he's been pulled off the case, but he still there. >> i think we are all at a loss as to why he is still at the fbi. the best way that chris wray can defend the 13,000 agents, many of them were very good at brave men and women that go every day to khabarovsk country safe, is to hold accountable to really
4:21 pm
bad actors, and at this point in time, there's no question and at the astonishing level of bias and hatred cannot be justified and explained. >> sandra: that was not just for the president and his administration but trump supporters as well as we revealed in this text messages. thank you for coming on the program. the bad news for the fbi does not end there. the agency was arrested by lawmakers, and at times by the doj inspector general during a fiery senate hearing earlier today. >> there is a serious problem with the culture at fbi headquarters. >> it just seemed to be a culture of impunity, where the rules did not apply. >> i can't believe that this happened to my fbi. >> i can't think of something more concerning when a law enforcement officer
4:22 pm
suggesting or they were going to use their powers to affect an election. >> john summers, communication directors for senator harry reid. byron, you and i have spoken a lot leading up to that hearing today, what did you make of that culture of the fbi? >> now you had republicans making their case that and that you are discussing that with congressman radcliffe. clinging to the conclusion that michael horowitz did say that he did not see any documentary or testimonial evidence of bias in the specific decision, whether or not to prosecute hillary clinton. but basically, horowitz did say there were tons of tons of bias here and republicans took it from there. >> sandra: john, this is the
4:23 pm
fbi. the american people look on from this and if they want to have full confidence in the fbi. that needs to be restored to come up will it? >> i certainly hope so. first we have to remember what we are talking about, it's a handful of people not the entire agency of 37000. it's sad to see this department having the baby thrown out with the bathwater on this one because, as byron just said, most people are hardworking people who work to keep the american people safe. i don't think anyone would consider the fbi a and abolisht of liberalism. in fact if you ask anyone around who they are voting for, they will tell you it's trump. so while there may have been a culture issue that needs to be investigated, that's not something that could be applied to the entire fbi. if there's one thing that came out of this hearing, it is that there was no deep state conspiracy orth plot against the president or his campaign. and i'm sorry that republicans
4:24 pm
don't like it. but conclusions do matter. if we are going to trust the inspector general who is supposed to take this nonbiased approach, then who do we trust? >> sandra: i want to get byron to respond to that because i know when i spoke to you earlier. earlier, we were talking about peter strzok and whether or not he was officially going to testify. now not only to see peter strzok up there and answering questions to members of congress, but finally hear the stories. i mean this could be very revealing testimony. >> exactly. first on the issue of it being a handful to the people in evolved, maybe there was a handful of people but unfortunately they included the director of the fbi, and that the director of the fbi and thd investigator. very important handful. now lawmakers have been trying for months to get this to
4:25 pm
happen. i think it's going to be a lot more than just biased questions about peter strzok. remember, he actually led the trump-russia investigation when it was in july of 2016 all the way through may 2017, when he joined the molar investigation r investigation. some lawmakers will say, we know that you don't like trump. how did this investigations start? trial, i can tell about george papadopoulos. tell us about the trump employee seeking information. tell us about seeking informants. there's a lot that lawmakers want to know them. >> sandra: his lawyer said he is willing to testify, he will not plead the fifth. do you expect his final word to
4:26 pm
you, john come to be revealing? >> i hope the one of the first things he does when he gets up there is provide an explanation to the american people and an apology for what he has done about crack casting the shadow on the fbi. the reality is, you can talk about bias and what led up to the investigation starting, and, you have to trust that he's doing the right thing. at the end of the day, evidence matters. let's not lose sight of the fact that 13 russians were indicted as a result of this process so this investigation matters, it's important and we should let it go on. >> i think that evidence is what the inspector general talked about today. he had seen the bias and the text but not that the evidence played out in the decision-making of the investigation. john and byron, thank you.
4:27 pm
still to come, with the midterm elections moving, the democrats are getting desperate. >> there is an infernal raging in washington. but here in the land of 10,000 lakes, we know how to put out a fire. >> sandra: and a firestorm of backlash after the republican chairwoman said it would be a mistake for candidates to not support our president. ronna mcdaniel will be her explicitly to explain. plus the southern poverty law center admits that it wrongly named a person to its extremist watch list. we have that coming up next. >> they know they have this wrong but they are being stubborn. they are trying to save their own face of this, and they are they would recognize they made a huge error, but it would be too

4:32 pm
august defensive war game. that comes one week after president trump agreed to suspend u.s. military drills on the region as part of a deal with north korean leader kim jong un. developing tonight, some vindication for a man unjustly targeted by a controversial organization. the southern poverty law center is issuing an apology, a retraction and a settlement to islamic reformer majeed new lawg and putting them on a extremist muslim watch list. >> has a major victory for him for a few weeks reasons, it helps to rehabilitate his reputation as a former islamic extremist who now argues for a peaceful vision of islam, and that will help his foundation continued their fight against anti-muslim victory.
4:33 pm
the statement said, although we may have our differences, they are most certainly not anti-muslim extremists. but critics fear the apology and pay payout may not be enough claiming that the splc has a history of attacking people and maligning their name. splc added him to the hate list. he has argued that splc is putting credibility and security at risk. when the conservative christian family research council was added to the hate list, a gunman walked into the frc headquarters in d.c. and shot a guard. the government pled guilty saying he wanted to intimidate opponents of gay rights.
4:34 pm
>> we often associate violence with far right neo-nazis or is a realistic g bodies. but it's leading to violence and it needs to be checked. when you make lists of people in this way, they end up being murdered. >> throughout this pattern of attack, retreat and then apologize, the law center isn't exactly lifting at stature. three years ago the fbi deleted splc from its list of repeated hate crimes. >> sandra: trace gallagher, thank you. here with more is mark key sin, a scholar fox news contributor. i know that this is something that you have been following for quite some time and to remind everyone from trace apparently's is reporting as well. this list was intended to serve as a resource for journalists.
4:35 pm
it was deleted shortly after he filed this suit. was this a long time coming? >> the idea that he has a anti-muslim and he was a bribe to three prime ministers, and it's named for a muslim convert that funded the first mosque in the u.k. in 1989. who was recently on a televised debate where he defended the proposition that islam is a religion of piece. so to equate him to the ku klux klan which is effectively what they did his absurd. they took on suing the two ku klux klan and now they've run out of klansmen and so what they're doing is going after people whose political views they disagree with and who tended to be conservative.
4:36 pm
they put together this shoddy list and besmirched the names of people. >> so its readers and the splc has issued an apology and agreed to pay $3.4 million. is that apology and that payment enough? >> it's a start. for example, last year "abc news" ran a story and this is one of the big problems. because of their history, a lot of the news organizations treat them as a serious organization. they ran a story saying jeff sessions gives speech to anti-lgbt hate group. if you read the story they were citing the southern poverty law center and the alliance defending freedom. that's a conservative group of lawyers that just one a case in the masterpiece cake shop case. they are not the ku klux klan. and they keep doing this. they did this to the family
4:37 pm
research council where somebody saw that information where they went in and shot somebody. it's not just defamation but dangerous. >> do you expect more lawsuits? >> i hope so. people seem to be intimidated by this organization because of their history. but now maajid nawaz has shown that if you take them to court and threatened to destroy their livelihood and their funding, they will back off and now they will be more careful about using this power in the name of theirs that they built many years ago in a good way to attack people that don't have anything to do with anything like the ku klux klan. >> nine if you've been a big part in following that story, so thanks for that. still ahead, do you see anything wrong with the message on this billboard? wait until you hear why they were ordered to be taken down? that's coming up. thoughts come up more and more
4:38 pm

my symptoms were keeping me from being there. so, i talked to my doctor and learned humira is for people who still have symptoms of crohn's disease after trying other medications. and the majority of people on humira saw significant symptom relief and many achieved remission in as little as 4 weeks. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. does it look like i'm done?yet? shouldn't you be at work?

4:43 pm
mcdaniel, chair of the republican national committee. good evening tio. >> ronna: good evening, great to be here. and, if you could clarify, and it's probably the least threatening person you are going to find but, it's something i'm seeing and hearing as i travel around the country. i want to see our candidates supporting our president because our president supports us. he's helped usher in 3 million new jobs, record unemployment. isis is on the run, and you are seeing our economy booming. that's why they voted to put him in office and that's why they want to see him keep these majorities and have candidates that are supporting the agenda. >> sandra: it so it is that the winning strategy heading into november to embrace the president and his policies? >> and, to embrace the policies.
4:44 pm
good things are happening in this country. we have more people entering the workforce and veterans are being taken care of. lots to run on four republicans and these are things that propelled donald trump. we are talking about issues that are really important to americans and every republican should embrace that because that's how we will win and keep the majority. >> sandra: it seems some still on the left, democrats, are choosing that anti- anti-trumpe message. he also happens to be george w. bush's former ethics lawyer. he has put together this ad depicting trump as a dumpster fire. watch this. >> some people see a dumpster fire and do nothing but watch the spectacle. some are too scared to face the danger or they think it will benefit them if they let it keep
4:45 pm
on going. others shrug and say, all this talk of a dumpster fire is just fake news. there is an inferno raging in washington. we would know how to put out a fire. >> ronna: they have focused on this realist and stand up to the president. they are resisting better pay, and a stronger economy, so many good things or have been at this country, the democrats are refusing to acknowledge it. they should be embracing these things. so are you going to vote for the party of no, resist and obstruct or are you going to go to the department that has actually done things for this country? we have seen republicans turning out in higher numbers and democrats on these various
4:46 pm
current policies in ohio and north dakota. but beyond that we are delivering and making people's lives better. >> sandra: really quick i want to play this, cory stewart, republican candidate. >> >> those of us who have tied ourselves to president trump. we are going to increasingly win as we get closer to november. i think that by that point we will have a red tide because of the popularity of president trump. >> sandra: clearly embracing the president and his policies, and he has what some see as controversial past. i hadn't seen whether or not the rnc is supporting him as a candidate. so obviously, we support the nominees of states across the country, but we are going to be in the most battleground states, the states where we can pick up senate seats. we also are looking at states
4:47 pm
and other states that president trump wanted. >> so as your support force cory stewart? >> we are not in a statewide for a virginia or new jersey or minnesota, we are going to be monitoring those races and we have to show that they are competitive. >> sandra: thanks for coming on the show tonight. president trump threatened to hit china with $200 billion in new tariffs. we have those new details, the next. plus why this billboard is being called a quote anger provoking. the man behind the message, pastor robert jeffords is here. battery in your smart lock?

maybe not. maybe you could trust you won't have to actually talk to your neighbor. are you watching the game tonight? or... could just trust duracell. ♪

>> sandra: this is a fox news alert. news on the escalating trade dispute between the u.s. and china. president trump has just directed moments ago the u.s. trade office to prepare a brand-new tariffs on $200 billion in chinese goods. the presidents sighting quotes unacceptable policies, and he
4:52 pm
declared earlier today that further action must be taken to encourage china to change its unfair practices. so the president is making this move tonight and directing the administration to identify and u.s. stock markets today. a triple digit plunge ended tonight and we watch the stock index futures, they are down triple digits again so we will see where all this goes as we start off the week. more news on trump and a traitor. faith under fire in texas, this billboard taken down after a dallas newspaper columnist and the mayor took offense with the message. the sign was put put up to promote pastor robert's upcoming event. but the big offensive part was the words. here is robert jeffers, pastor at first baptist church dallas.

pastor jeffers, thank you for being here tonight. so what was the issue with this billboard? >> well apparently they wrote the scathing article about this message's calling me a bigot saying america is a christian nation. this sermon is simply my recounting of the historical evidence of the christian foundation of our county. they also said it was divisive and, 24 hours later at the billboard company called us and cited that the dallas morning news article saying they were going to pull down the billboard. sandra, i want to make it clear. we are not trying to propagate a message they are comfortable with. our argument is with the mayor of dallas, he does not have the right to weigh in on this to disparage our church and directly or indirectly influence the billboard company.

one thing the supreme court made clear to weeks ago and the wedding cake case is, the government has to remain neutral. >> what does this say to you that you are asked to take the billboard down, what does it tell you about things today? >> it shows me the hypocrisy of liberalism, whether it's the dallas morning news or mayor rawlings. and sandra come up that phrase, america is a christian nation is actually a quote from the first chief justice of the supreme court and through supreme court rulings. so this is hardly an un-american or divisive idea. >> has it come down, the billboard? >> i think so but we have another billboard company that has put up to to replace this.
4:55 pm
>> sandra: we will be right back. a bachelor. and that's how he intended to keep it. then he met the love of his life. who came with a three foot, two inch bonus. for this new stepdad, it's promising to care for his daughter as if she's his own. every way we look out for those we love is an act of mutuality. we can help with the financial ones. learn more or find an advisor at we can help with the financial ones.

>> sandra: tonight's quote of the night from president donald trump who, earlier today, laid out his vision for american dominance in outer space. by announcing this addition to our u.s. armed forces. >> president trump: hereby directing the department of defense and pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. that is a big statement. we are going to have the air force and we are going to have the space force. separate but equal.
5:00 pm
