pretty controversial because maliki did not inform the united states, it was not well coordinated so these comments from the defense secretary, general david petraeus, frustrated with maliki. no one was with me except dana because she remembered i had been on the record at 5:00 am that morning, saying president bush stood behind the prime minister. that must be pretty special. jillian: thanks for waking up early and joining us and sharing those memories and the life lessons, we really appreciate it. >> charles krauthammer passing away at the age of 68. his wife robin and his sunday and your.

path to citizenship for dreamers, doesn't allow children to be separated by dhs and cuts chain migration. what was in the compromise bill, the difference would offer dreamers merit-based visas and a path to citizenship doesn't allow children to be separated by the department of homeland security. i will start with you. does this happen next week? >> and interest in fixing the problem. it goes further than what is going on in congress. it is not a priority issue for him but finding a comprehensive fix. he had an opportunity to correct this and address daca it not put that ridiculous policy in place. and the issue to deal with.
>> democrats had a supermajority, did not act on immigration. the core issue of theirs did nothing. this is a political issue, they would rather play to the base but republicans had to have a good argument, poised to make a good argument the democrats don't do anything on this issue, we secured the border, fix daca, end chain migration and do the things republicans talk about doing. and sell tax reform, these things, and when counted it yet. shannon: even if this doesn't advance we are still making progress, is that enough? >> one of the most intractable issues for the republican caucus
because they do not agree on the core tenets of pathway to citizenship even for the dreamers. i think they will bring it back up and try to force some votes to muster support. i don't count this, it will come back next week. jillian: yesterday we saw milania made a surprise visit to the border where she visited one of the facilities housing the children who were separated. and what is your opinion? >> i will repeat something on the back of the jacket, i don't give a damn about this. i care about the 2300 kids that
were separated from their parents by this ridiculous policy her husband implemented. that is what i care about. i have no interest in talking about her exterior accessories. it is a waste of time discussing it and we should focus on figuring out how to get kids back to their parents. jillian: we agree on this? >> that we don't care? if it is not this democrats will find something else to be outraged about. we have seen many controversies, anytime i worry about the republican base being energized i look to the first lady being attacked and say republicans will turn out. heather: bit of an agreement. appreciate it. >> what is next? dogs and cats coming together? a school going soft on their kids? one district voting to end class

>> 3000 college administrators lashing out at the trump administration over the border separation controversy calling the move child abuse. why is enforcing our laws considered abusive? here is lawrence jones. i went to get to the open letter from educators first. to punish these parents reflects cruelty and overzealous prosecution of the law in order to garner political points. to punish these children is tantamount to government sanctioned child abuse. >> i remember the when they were decimating the community and the bottom line is a lot of laws i don't like in this country, you can work to reform the system or play on the sidelines and that is what they are doing. i would like it to be a more consistent on what they find
