>> as border authorities struggle for migrants and their children, there are detention centers. no progress. hammering out immigration. live to south texas. leland: president trump slams democrats and the media for ignore the plight of hundreds of american families who have lost loved ones to violence, undocumented immigrants. >> and new tariffs on american goods, president trump says his tariffs and aluminum is leading to a major comeback for american jobs. and welcome to america's news
9:01 am
headquarters from washington. i'm kristen fisher in for elizabeth prann. leland: here on a weekend, we're glad to have you. a big news weekend. the president is on his way to las vegas, i'm leland vittert. a fox news alert. as you can see democratic congressmen holding a news conference outside of a border patrol processing facility in texas. one of the democrats on the tour there, congressman john garamendi of the state of california will join us with what he heard and saw, meantime, the trump administration is trying to figure out how to reunite so many of the kids who were separated from their families back with their parents. it's one of the many challenges this weekend. steve h harrigan on the ground near the border.
9:02 am
>> and they've been visiting custom detention centers. you can see them now coming before the microphones off to my left there to comment on the conditions they've seen throughout the day for the parents and children, detained illegally crossing the border. we've seen a stream of politicians come through the area yesterday. the two texas republican senators john cornyn and ted cruz. here is senator cruz. >> my hope is we'll see congress work in a bipartisan manner who ensure that kids stay with their paren parents. >> health and human services said they're putting together an emergency response team to try and speed up the reunion of children and parents, roughly 2000 children and parents still separated from each other, forcibly separated at the border. now, the reunion could be
9:03 am
complicated by the fact that some of those parents were deported almost immediately. so the effort to reunite those children and parents in some cases will be an international one. leland, back to you. leland: i've heard some parents have been without their kids for a month or more. steve harrigan on the border mcallen, texas, back to him as news warrants. >> all of this is going on in the border and president trump is about to land in las vegas. he'll be speaking and attending a meeting with the tax rebill, but that criessy at the border is continuing to follow him wherever he goes. he made not one, but two rare reverseals this week. he ended the policy separating families at the border and told congress to stop working on immigration reform until after the midterms. >> the president criticized them for pushing phony stories of
9:04 am
sadness and grief. yesterday he met with the families of so-called angel families, families that lost a loved ones in crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. he said they're permanently separated and the media doesn't give them enough attention. >> no major networks sent cameras to their homes or displayed the images of their incredible loved one across the nightly news. they don't talk about the death and destruction caused by people who shouldn't be here. he was 30 years old, i couldn't protect him because an illegal alien from guatemala with two felonies, one deportation, two dui's, he was protected. >> critics say the president is demonizing undocumented immigrants, painting them as disproportionately violent criminals when the data doesn't seem to support it. the cato institute released a
9:05 am
report of crime data of public safety, in texas people born in the u.s. are more likely to be convicted of a crime than immigrants who come to the u.s. legally or illegally. and children have been separated at the u.s.-mexico border since the zero tolerance policy began in may. a senior officials tells that 500 of those children separated from their families have been reunited and only separated for a period of an average of three days. quite a lot this week we've heard of two administration officials at restaurants in the area and faced protesters, angry about this administration's immigration policies. white house press secretary sarah sanders tweeted a little while ago she was asked to leave an establishment in lexington, virginia last night and we're working on getting more information from that restaurant as well as press secretary sarah
9:06 am
sanders. >> and i believe secretary nielsen and miller were confronted the a restaurants. leland: a new poll shows that immigration is not only a hot button issue in d.c., but for the midterms. and joining us from south carolina, good to see you, sir. we saw the tweet from the president saying that republicans are wasting their time trying to pass any type of immigration reform, do you agree with them? >> we are obligated to have an up or down vote. those who signed their name to the discharge petition, we'll honor what those names took off the list and have a vote next week. i think it's time now for us to stop politicizing it and i mean to have the little girls picture on time magazine with the president is not fair.
9:07 am
emotions have gotten-- rightfully show emotions are high. but it's time for us as a majority to come together and pass just the basics, as in funding the wall. leland: see, you bring up a great point, congressman. the republicans have the majority in the wall and anything, even the basics have been elusive. who is to blame for that inside your own party? >> bear in mind, leland, we don't have any support from democrats. 193 voted against tax reform. 193 voted against the goodlatte bill. now what we have to do is agree on just, again, the basics, funding the wall, e-verify, you know, end the diversity lottery. things that whatever we can agree to and have an up or down vote and-- >> congressman, i get what you want to have happen. i'm wondering given you have a majority in the house of representatives, you don't need a single democrats, you made the point. you were able to pass tax reform
9:08 am
and tax cuts without the democrats. what is the problem inside the republican party from getting done what you just said you want to get done. >> well, you've got to remember, every congressman, republican and democrats has different things that are important to them. as with immigration, you have some people that-- >> you're not willing to call out any caucus or individual you blame for the action? >> it's time to stop blaming and time for us to lead. leland: i'll turn it around. if it's time to lead, who is not leading who needs to lead within the republican caucus. >> we all need to get together as a caucus, which i think we will do early next week. friday we had a meeting and to try to iron out the differences and do just what you're saying, ask each individual congressman to come forward and say, what can we agree to. leland: but when you've got the president of the united states saying it's a waste of time,
9:09 am
that can't help the cause of trying to bring the republicans party and caucus in the house together, does it? >> well, i think he will sign-- a common sense immigration bill. leland: congressman, wouldn't it make your job a lot easier if the president was there whipping votes and trying to help you and your colleagues, as you pointed out, lead? >> when he appeared and my plane was delayed so i couldn't be in the meeting with the president last monday. i think he indicated his support for common sense immigration plan. what he's frustrated with, and all of us are, is to just talk about it and not have a-- something on the table. i'm for putting the basics that we agree with and make the democrats vote 'cause i don't think they want a wall. i don't think they want the end to the diversity lottery. i don't think ne want a merit-based system. leland: as you point out the democrats have voted against so
9:10 am
many republican proposals inside the house of representatives. you made that point earlier. as we started this segment, pew now saying that immigration is the singlemost important issue on the mind of voters come the midterms. are you worried, take your district, voters in south carolina say, look, the republicans even with a majority can't get anything done on an important issue. maybe it's time for the democrats to take the issue. is that a worry you have? >> not in my district, to say we're going to turn it over to the democrats who don't want a wall, who don't want an end to all the things we're against, diversity lottery, merit-based immigration, legally coming into this country for people from all over the world, but, no, i think we'll come up with something. i think we'll have a vote next week. and hopefully we'll get together. but the democrats, what have they put forward? for the last eight, nine years they haven't done anything, it's time for us to do something as a party, and to put aside
9:11 am
differences. you know, the old saying don't let perfection get in the way of progress. that's what i think hopefully we will not do and we'll come up with just the basics. put it on the table, and let's vote on it. leland: hope has been an interesting policy here in washington by both parties. good to see you, sir, we appreciate it and we'll check in with you next week to see if it actually happened. >> thank you, leland. leland: thank you. kristin. >> let's take a closer look at what exactly is causing so many migrants and their families to flee central america and the numbers tell you everything you need to know. of the roughly 32,000 unaccompanied children that crossed the border over 1600 from guatemala, honduras, el salvador. migrants with children, 59,000 families and once again, over half of that are from guatemala followed by honduras, el salvador and mexico. joining me now is genevieve wood
9:12 am
the senior communications advisor with the heritage foundation. genevieve, yeah, the numbers speak for themselves. el salvador has a homicide way 80 per 100 inhabitants and the poverty rate. no wonder they want to leave. >> and the triangle by mexico, honduras-- and this is why they're in the bad rate. if you look under the obama administration, what did we do. we cut the defendant of defense and part of the funding cut there was money used to go into those countries, into mexico, and try to fight off the drug wars, so we're seeing now that we didn't do that and in cases like maritime drug trafficking coming in we were not able to stop 25% of that coming into the country because we cut the
9:13 am
department of defense. myself and those at the heritage foundation, sometimes foreign assistance is not spent correctly, but we're reaping bad benefits of what we didn't do. >> explain for folks who don't really know, what is happening in these countries that is causing these kinds of ridiculous homicide and poverty rates? let's start with el salvador and put some of the numbers up for you so you can kind of see, there we go, that 80 per 100,000 inhabitants homicide rates. you have gangs many times running these countries and the gangs running the countries. even though they do, and have governments involved, smugglers and cartels, they're taking their own people and getting those people who are desperate saying i'll pay you money to get me to the u.s. and what we don't have is mexico coming in and helping. you see in mexico right now as you have seen the elite care little about the poor in their country. because of that you see a
9:14 am
leftist nationalist kind of movement coming up and they're not willing to cooperate with the u.s. they don't want to stop these people in their country and they want to help them get in the u.s. and we're seeing them showing up on the southern border. >> in terms of the u.s. aid and what the u.s. is trying to do to stop or help these people before they get to our border. the numbers, guatemala 16.5 million, 9 million from honduras in u.s. aid. 72.7 million to el salvador. is this money being spent properly? >> in some cases we need sending more in these cases to make sure to tackle the problems. honduras, for example, they have, when it comes to airplanes, awn aeronautical unit used to fight the drug war at one point in the obama administration, we're not going to let you work with israel to get that aircraft fixed. and sometimes they're wrong thinking about policy, and we can be working much closer with these countries so that the problems are contained there and
9:15 am
beginning to be fixed mr., so that people don't feel like they have to flee their country, but let's also be clear. some people do need true asylum, but not everybody showing up on our border truly needs asylum. if they did, they could ask for it at port of entries the proper way, but that's not what they're doing. >> even if the u.s. would do what you're saying they should do, it would take years to fix this problem if not decades. >> you're absolutely right and that's why laws matter and why it has to be clear to those south of our border and north of the border, there's a proper way. that's not just about catch and release and letting people come across the border frankly like the democratic wants to do what it's about, saying we have laws and we need to fix the system that's merit-based and clear how you get into the country and do it the proper way, if you don't you're not going to get to come in and stay.
9:16 am
>> that's a debate that's going to rage on on capitol hill. thank you so much. leland: much more on the immigration debate all weekend long on fox news. fox news sunday, chris wallace's interview with mike mccall. check your local listings for final and channel. tomorrow, 11 a.m. media buzz, we'll take a closer look at the coverage of the immigration debate, including an interview with former white house communications director anthony scaramucci. and a fox news alert out of south carolina, where a congressional candidate there is now in the hospital and recovering after a serious car accident. we're told a wrong-way drive hit katie arrington's car last night in south carolina. arrington's campaign says she has a fracture in her back and several broken ribs and emergency surgery. we'll have to undergo additional surgery and hospitalized for at least two weeks.
9:17 am
president trump tweeted about arrington today, my thoughts and prayers are with representative katie arrington of south carolina and including all of those involved in last night's car accident and their families. you might remember that the president endorsed arrington in the primary against sitting congressman mark sanford. we're told the driver of that other car that hit arrington's car died. >> and coming up, we'll be speaking with congressman john garamendi from mcallen, texas where democrats have gathered to see the immigration crisis firsthand live. and flood waters in texas, is there any relief from the rain? and another dropped from the u.s. and paris, harley motorcycles. and find out what president trump is tweeting about it. >> they put tariffs on certain
9:18 am
countries and certain industries, very unfair to the united states. to your bumper, cause.... i don't think enough people heard about your big day. but nothing says "we got married" like a 12 ounce piece of scrap metal. yo! we got married! honk if you like joint assets. now you're so busy soaking up all this attention, you don't see the car in front of you. and if i can crash your "perfect day", imagine what i can do to the rest of 'em. so get allstate, and be better protected from mayhem. like me.
9:19 am
man: it takes a lot of work to run this business, but i really love it. i'm on the move all day long, and sometimes i don't eat the way i should. so i drink boost to get the nutrition i'm missing. boost high protein now has 33% more protein, along with 26 essential vitamins and minerals. and it has a guaranteed great taste. man: boost gives me everything i need to be up for doing what i love. boost high protein. be up for it.
9:20 am
9:21 am
>> the president's call for the expanded use of family detention along the u.s., mexico border is getting some serious pushback
9:22 am
from democrats. earlier today, congressman john garamendi was at the facility in mcallen, texas. welcome. >> good to be with you and with my 25 colleagues who came down here to see what's going on and try to figure out a way to solve a very, very serious humanitarian problem. kristin: have you seen any improvement since president trump stopped the policy of separating families at the border? >> there's no doubt that his order of zero tolerance created a huge humanitarian crisis separating children from families and they're dispersed across the nation and a serious question do we really have the capability to rejoin these people. it's good that the president rescinded his policy. the immediate effect was that the processing that was underway prior to his rescission led to parents and children being
9:23 am
separated. the border patrol here was able-- once that was in place, a thousand back together. that's good news. nonetheless, we still have a zero tolerance policy which is going to create enormous problems into the future as the government tries to figure out what to do with a whole set of people that have become criminalized because they tried to enter the country illegally. now, if the courts were open and people could enter appropriately, then we could probably not see the kind of problem that we have now and certainly had in the past. >> so, there would be that so-called republican compromise bill. it will likely be put up for a vote next week. and it could potentially deal with a lot of these issues. is there any chance that you could see yourself voting for it? >> well, not in this current form. now, it's being changed offer the weekend and hopefully changed to the better, but there's some very serious problems in there, in that bill.
9:24 am
it doesn't really deal with the underlying issues that present themselves here at the border. we know that we have to have a rational immigration program. people want to come to america to improve their lives, that's good. some have skills, some don't, but both have a role here in the united states. that's not dealt with here. there's an example, melania's parents couldn't come here to join her because of the provisions in the law on friday. and it deals in part with the policy that the president put in, the zero tolerance policy, but it doesn't go to the heart of the matter and it doesn't-- excuse me, it doesn't deal with the daca issue in any rational way at all. kristin: i've heard so many criticisms from republicans about the--
9:25 am
so many criticisms from democrats about the president's plan, but i still haven't heard a good democratic alternative. what alternatives are the democrats putting forward to this? >> well, first of all, we need to separate out the individual issues and not put them together. certainly, the daca situation is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with. a clean daca bill that took those who came here as children and processed them and allowed them a clear path to be in the country needs to be clear. that's not in this about bill. kristin: what about the issues of families being detained at the border. >> families have been detained at the border and unaccompanied children detained at the border. we need to determine whether they're here under a policy that they were in harm's way back in their country or not. if they were in harm's way back in their country, then there is an international program to deal with those people who would
9:26 am
become refugees and allowed to stay in the country. and in the united states. right now that whole policy is up in the air, as the president clamps down on some of the reasons why a person could claim that they were in harm's way back in their country. so we need to really be clear about what is the criteria to allow people to enter the country. right now, we heard this morning about 80% of the people that claimed that they're here because they're in harm's way back in their country. they're sent back to their country after the adjudication process. >> final question, congressman-- >> yes, go ahead. kristin: one final question, i want to make sure to get to this i'm running out of time sure. kristin: one thing that bothered me were an allegations in a class action lawsuit, said that some children were abused and forcibly drugged while in u.s. custody and and this lawsuit was filed after the president's zero
9:27 am
tolerance policy became into effect and a lot of these were long, long before in the obama administration. regardless what happens on capitol hill. what are you in congress doing to make sure the children are safe in u.s. custody? >> well, first of all, 25 of us are here just for that purpose, to try to understand what's going on. and clearly, these children that crossed the border by themselves, and we saw seven, eight-year-olds who crossed the border by themselves, they are in harm's way trying to get here and crossing the border. once they're here it is our obligation to make sure that they are safe. i think that there's a real effort on the part of the border patrol and others to make sure that happens, but when you have the numbers that we're talking about and you have the dispersal of these children all around the nation, there is a very high probability that something bad is likely to happen.
9:28 am
so we as human-- go ahead. kristin: to make a long fix, it's going to take some sort of congressional action and see if you can cut a deal. >> we need to work together. kristin: absolutely. thanks. leland: up next, breaking down president trump's reversal on child separation. what changed his mind and republicans and democrats, as you just heard, agree the immigration system is broken. so why can't they pass reform? >> i am ooh -- i mean, it breaks your heart to realize people because of violence and circumstances they live in their home country, that they feel it's necessary to risk a dangerous trip from central america.
9:29 am
to most people, i look like... ...most people. but on the inside, i feel chronic, widespread pain. fibromyalgia may be invisible to others, but my pain is real.
9:30 am
fibromyalgia is thought to be caused by overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i'm glad my doctor prescribed lyrica. for some, lyrica delivers effective relief from fibromyalgia pain, and improves function. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions, suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worse depression, unusual changes in mood or behavior, swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects: dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who've had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain i can do more. ask your doctor about lyrica. if you're elligble, you could pay as little as $25 a month.
9:31 am
you shouldn't be rushed into booking a hotel. with expedia's add-on advantage, booking a flight unlocks discounts on select hotels until the day you leave for your trip. add-on advantage. only when you book with expedia.
9:32 am
>> president trump continuing to threaten tariffs on allies and adversaries alike.
9:33 am
he's speaking in las vegas in a couple of hours. the rhetoric sparking fears on wall street and main street of a trade war that could put cold water on what is now a roaring u.s. economy. gillian turner, more with the latest rounds of tariffs and threats of reciprocal tariffs. kristin: exactly, the european union announced a 25% tariff on major american goods, steel, blue jeans, motor bikes. it's the latest escalation in an ongoing transatlantic trade spat. they say it's retaliation for the president's decision earlier this month to tax steel and aluminum airport. the president threatening to ratchet up the stakes. based on the tariffs long placed on the u.s. ang companies and workers by the european union, if these tariffs and barriers
9:34 am
are not soon broken down and removed we'll be placing a 20% tariffs on all of their cars coming into the u.s., build them here. the president's long insisted in the system of global trade, the u.s. gets the short end of the stick, even making ending so-called bad deals with north american, asian and european allies a center piece of had his campaign. in a campaign meeting thursday, he made clear this issue remains a priority for his presidency and even got in a jab at his predecessor. >> this should have been taken care of a long time before my administration came into being. but for some reason, for 25, 30 years nobody ever looked at trade deals. they're out of control, how bad they are. >> but the commerce secretary adopting a more diplomatic tone this week. >> we had tried very hard to have good negotiations before the steel and aluminum tariffs were put on. >> the president's critics say the administration should have tried much harder before
9:35 am
imposing a new tariff's regime on long time allies. >> it's also frustrating to watch as the administration's trade moves seem more like knee-jerk impulses than any kind of carefulfully thought out strategy. its most obvious accomplishment on trade so far is sewing a lot of sowing a lot against us. >> and the approach on trade. secretary ross is in the midst of review of automobile imports and expected to announce new policies later this summer. in a few weeks, the u.s. will look into taxing billions in goods from china. leland: thank you. how does this affect you and your pocket book at home? next hour, we're going to break down how the tariffs and the threat of a trade war will help
9:36 am
some manufacturers in the united states, but could stick all of us with higher prices on everything from cars to washing machines. >> well, g.o.p. leadership is promising a vote on the house floor next week on the so-called compromise immigration bill even after president trump told them to stop wasting their time just a few days ago. garrett tenney has the latest on this. whiplash. >> 180's all around. there's not a lot of optimism that this compromise bill will be able to pass. this bill has been moved around a couple of times and pushed to next week when house leadership found it had less support than another immigration bill that failed. ahead of the vote and a few days after pushing republicans to pass an immigration bill, he tweeted, republicans should stop wasting their time on immigration until after we elect more senators and congressmen, and women in november. dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades
9:37 am
old program. we can pass great legislation after the red wave. and democratic lawmakers aren't budging here either and are blaming this crisis solely on the president. >> he is taking infant children hosta hostage, wrenching them from the arms of their parents, traumatizing them perhaps for life for the purposes of forcing us, apparently, to make an agreement that we think is bad for dreamers, bad for our immigration system, which needs to be fixed. >> despite that lack of support from democrats and the president, this morning, house majority whip steve scalise says republicans are not giving up on trying to fix our immigration system. >> we're going to keep trying to get it done. democrats want to walk away from this table. right now, we're not there,
9:38 am
we're not there. there's a lot of work being done over the weekend by every different faction on the republican side, from our most conservative members all the way across the spectrum trying to find a way that we can come together. >> it's important to remember that even if house republicans are able to overcome these hurdles and pass an immigration bill, it only gets more difficult in the senate where they will need at least some democratic support for them to pass and that's not going to come easily. kristin: no, it's not. to use one of the president's favorite phrases, we'll see what happens. garrett tenney, thank you. leland: the president trying to change the conversation on immigration by bringing the families of those killed by illegal immigrants to the white house. will it work? to focus the attention on the democrats.
9:39 am

9:41 am
9:42 am
>> we've been talking about immigration all day, all week it seems and joining us with more insight on the issue is steven nelson, he's a white house reporter for the washington examiner. steven, we saw two major
9:43 am
reverseals by president trump this week. we usually don't see that from him. he's stopped his immigration policy of separating families at the border and told congress not to work on immigration reform even after he went to capitol hill to tell them to work on it. so has it hurt him? >> it would seem to because it was a clear reversal after calling for congress to act. and he ends up doing it himself. we'll see how that works out in court, but, really, what remains to be seen is whether he can force congress to do anything about this matter. it seems rather unlikely. congress has trouble doing much of anything and particularly on this very controversial topic. it doesn't seem particularly likely. kristin: so why do you think president trump keeps kind of stepping on his own success? he was getting a lot of praise after the singapore summit and north korea, getting a lot of praise about the economy and then he enacts a policy like this, that becomes this controversial. why does he keep doing this?
9:44 am
>> well, president trump thinks he can really make a success auto -- out of this. he often stakes out an extreme position in hopes o brokering a deal, really, that that is something he likes to talk about, making a deal. i'm sure he was more optimistic making a deal on this than was warranted and we'll have to see how he tries to salvage momentum and push this in the direction that suits his interests. kristin: well, clearly, some of these policies were very popular with his base, but not with a lot of americans, certainly folks here in d.c. we've seen, really, almost an unprecedented hostile against republicans this week. secretary nielsen was confronted while eating at a mexican restaurants and the staple with steven miller and a tweet from the press secretary sarah huckabee sanders, last night i was told by the owner of the red
9:45 am
hen restaurant in lexington to leave because of potus, and it says more about her than about me. i always do my best to treat people, including those i disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so. >> and the red hen restaurants, and nielsen being chased out of the restaurant. and steve miller was called a fascist while eating at a restaurant. kristin: and some congressmen have said that steven miller should resign, i don't think that's going to happen, but what do you think? >> it doesn't seem like it, miller has been able to stay longer than other white house aides and stay out of the drama of the white house so i don't think it's likely that trump is going to be firing him. kristin: no, and he works well behind the scenes. what about, final question, jacket gate. we want you to weigh in. was there a hidden message or not? >> well, president trump says it
9:46 am
was a diss to the media. i don't know that we've heard directly from the first lady. we'll have to wait and see. >> it was a busy week for congress and we'll see if congress tries to vote op comprehensive immigration. leland: and the governor in north carolina, and warren faces mcmaster on tuesday and he joins us to tell us why mcmaster needs to go. >> i've known donald trump and a friend of mine. you're a good man, but you are not donald trump-- paying too much for insurance that isn't the right fit? well, esurance makes finding the 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.

>> well, this tuesday, voters in new york, maryland, utah, colorado, oklahoma and mississippi will head to the polls as primary season continues and voters in south carolina will head back to the polls. with the republicans candidate for government incouple henry mcmaster and john warren are competing in a runoff election. leland: and mike pence stumps
9:51 am
for mcmaster today and the president heads south on monday. and painting him as the president's man in south carolina. >> henry mcmaster-- >> as a nation we're on the cusp of prosperity. we finally have a president in the white house who believes in the people of our country. leland: mcmaster's opponent john warren joins us from the streets of myrtle beach, south carolina. appreciate you being with us, sir, thank you. >> good afternoon, glad to be here. leland: afternoon to you. i don't need to tell you this, the president's got long coattails in south carolina. it was his tweet that helped knock off a sitting u.s. congressman in a primary election. how are you going to combat the vice-president and the president, air force one makes an awful lot of noise when it comes to town. stumping for your opponent? >> well, the president is very popular in south carolina and i can assure you that this is not

a referendum on him. south carolina supports the president. i support the president. but this is a referendum on governor mcmaster and his failed leadership. he's been partnered to a criminal for 30 years in richard quinn, who is a chief consultant. we're ready for a change here. we're ready for someone with competence who is going to represent the taxpayer and that's why i'm running. leland: i've heard that accusation before and in one of your sound bites and a lot of your interviews you say people are tired of the corruption. that's a pretty serious charge. are you actually saying the governor himself is corrupt? and if so, what evidence do you have? >> i'm saying that a lot of people that surround themselves with the governor are corrupt. we've had four legislators since 2014 indicted who have resigned in disgrace. three of the four share the exact same chief political consultant as the governor, and we have a criminal investigation going on right now. so we don't know what's going to happen. so we've got to have new blood.
9:53 am
we need a businessman, a conservative and a marine to go in there and change south carolina for the better. leland: let's talk about some of the issues that you're going to have to deal with. one thing that affects south carolina, perhaps disproportionately is tariffs and the reciprocal tariffs being placed because of president trump's policies. are you going to be able to stand up to the president and say, the tariffs might be good for him, but they're not good for south carolina? >> i think the president's done an amazing job with tax reform, with getting a supreme court justice, with winning the cold war in korea. one area i would disagree with the president on is tariffs and governor mcmaster has disagreed with the president on that issue. and we have so much industry. i with as in somerville and they import steel because the american steel industry is not
9:54 am
up to code and not up to par and tariffs hurt people in south carolina. leland: as you noted, governor mcmaster who calls himself a friend to president trump's. president trump is going there to stump for him, wasn't enough to change president trump's mind. what would you do differently to protect people in south carolina from the tariffs you just said were no damaging? >> well, i mean, he look forward to working with president trump come january, when i'm governor, and i think i'll have a great working relationship with him. leland: okay. >> when you look at my-- when you look at my resume' with compared to governor mcmaster, i'm the businessman, he's the career politician, this is his eighth statewide race. leland: mr. warren, i appreciate that, but what arguments are you going to take to the president that are different than the arguments that mr. mcmaster, quote, unquote, his friend took, and why should the president then listen to you? >> well, i think what i'll do, i'll try to show president trump the industries that are affected with the tariffs. i expect to have a great
9:55 am
relationship with him and that's what leaders do. they share ideas, they actually show evidence and that's what i'm going to do as governor. leland: all right, mr. warren, we appreciate you being with us. i know it's going to be a long, hot slog to the finish line on tuesdayment we wish you luck and invite you back anytime, sir. >> i appreciate it, thanks for having me. leland: great having you. good luck. kristin. kristin: coming up, president trump says american steel is coming back thanks to his tariffs on foreign imports. we'll talk to a trade expert on what exactly this means for new u.s. jobs. plus, we're going back to the border and going to get the very latest on the struggle to deal with thousands of migrant families. steve harrigan is outside the detention center in mcallen, texas. >> democratic lawmakers have been touring detention centers here. we'll hear what they have to say coming up next. ♪

restaurant in virginia last night because she works for president trump. we reached out to sanders and the owner of the restaurant. we have not heard back. officials say 2300 children have been separated from their parents at the u.s./mexico border since the administration began the zero tolerance policy in may. a senior administration officials tells fox news that 500 children have been reunited with their parents and that on average they were separated from their parents for about three days. one thing the president's executive order did not address is the reunification process. as we heard from steve harrigan a minute ago, that has led to a number of questions from lawmakers and advocates as to how it will actually happen and what the timetable is. >> leland: it certainly seems like the kids who were separated for a short period of time, it's easier to reunite with their parents than those who were separated for a while. allison barber at the white house. allison, thank you. >> kristin: from immigration to trade, tensions continue with
10:05 am
china. more retaliation against trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum and yesterday more than $3 billion in tariffs were slapped on the u.s. products in the european union. president trump quickly responded friday morning with a, warning leaders of a 20% tariff on all european built cars imported to the united states. jillian turner joins us with the details. >> reporter: the european announced a 25% tariff on american products like blue jeans, motorcycle, orange juice and bourbon, totaling $3.4 billion. it's the latest escalation of a raging transatlantic trade spat. the e.u. claims this move is retaliation for the trump administration's decision to tax european steel and aluminum exports. the president threatened to further ratchet up the stakes. based on the tariffs and trade barriers placed by the e.u., if they're not soon broken down and
10:06 am
removed, we'll be placing a 20% tariff on all of their cars coming into the u.s. build them here. the president long insisted that in the system of global trade, the u.s. gets the shortened of the stick. even making ending the so-called bad deals with north american, asian and european allies a centerpiece of his campaign. iin a cabinet meeting thursday, he made clear this issue remains a priority for his presidency and each got in a jab at his predecessors. >> this should have been taken care of a long time before my administration came into being. but for some reason, for 25, 30 years, nobody ever looked at trade deals. they're out of control, how bad they are. >> reporter: the president's critics in the senate, however, say the administration should have been more strategic. >.>> it's frustrating to watch e
10:07 am
administration's trade moves, seem more like knee-jerk impulses than any kind of carefully thought out strategy. >.the most obvious accomplishmet on trade so far is bringing a lot of chaos that united allies and china against us. >> reporter: wilbur ross insists there were serious efforts to resolve the dispute with europe. >> we had tried very hard to have good negotiations before the steel and aluminum tariffs were put on. >> reporter: the administration's moving full speed ahead with its take no prisoners approach on trade. secretary ross is reviewing car imports and is expected to announce a new policy later this summer. in two weeks the u.s. will begin taxing $34 billion of goods from china. >> kristin: thanks, jillian. >> leland: here with more about how this affects you, senior
10:08 am
fellow with the peter son institute for international economics, chad boun. let's start with this. we're hearing stories about how these tariffs are beginning to affect u.s. businesses. we had a candidate for republican governor of south carolina saying that this is really going to kill the south carolina manufacturing industry. how long until the average american family feels the effects? >> i think it depends on what kind of tariffs we're talking about. president trump started by imposing tariffs on solar panels and washing machines. >> leland: let's take the ones we know about right now. >> you can already see for washing machines, prices have gone up because there's less competition. the ones he imposed on steel and aluminum, those will take longer because they feed into everyday products whether it be automobiles or other goods. >> leland: you listen to the administration and when these tariffs were first announced, wilbur ross brought on a can of soup and said it's only a third
10:09 am
of a cent or whatever of aluminum in the soup. don't worry about it. is that what we're seeing in washing machines or is it a little more? >> it may be that in a can of soup but it's going to be a lot more in a product like washing machines or automobiles where steel and aluminum -- >> leland: what are we talking about, dollar value? >> could be hundreds of dollars of additional costs for these companies. it could potentially hit consumers in their pocketbook. >> leland: when you say potentially, free traders will tell you tariffs are just a tax on those imposing the tariffs, meaning the american people. is that accurate? >> yes, and i think you're going to start to see that not only through higher consumer prices, but also as the companies are making these products, they're going to continue to make the automobile producers they're going to have to do other things to try to keep costs down. so i think it may ultimately impact workers who may not be able to see the wage increases they'll want to get because companies are trying to keep other costs down to be able to sell the products. >> leland: the president and his team will tell you whatever pain will be endured because of the
10:10 am
tariffs it's worth it. we heard the president talk about the trade deals are out of control, quote, about how bad they are. does he have a point? >> i don't think so. certainly not in terms of the strategy. most of the tariffs that the trump administration has put on so far are on economic allies, canada, europe, japan, and not on china. and those are the countries that you want to have working with you on dealing with the fundamental underlying problems that we have out there in the world, which potentially is china. but right now they're not willing to. they're not able to politically. in fact, they're being forced to retaliate against the united states, impose tariffs on u.s. exports. >> leland: we had a fellow who owned a distillery on. he said the price of his bourbon in england was going up 25%. you mentioned china. that's something that a lot of people in congress had to say about as well. marco rubio last night on tucker, take a listen. >> any of the key technologies that china is targeting, under
10:11 am
made in china 2025, it's a blueprint to dominate the world of artificial intelligence, biomedicine, we shouldn't transfer any technology. that's the core of the fight with zte. it's a small company compared to huawei. huawei is a bigger problem, which is their big tel telecom. that's the primary thing we will do is say you can't sell or transfer any technology with them. >> leland: the president and his team say these tariffs are part of the way of tightening the thumb screws on china. is there a way to tighten the thumb screws without tariffs? >> yeah, i think the problem with this $34 billion worth of tariffs that they're talking about imposing in early july is they don't actually target china. it's mainly going to hit american companies, other japanese, korean companies. >> leland: what is the way to force china's hand when it comes to their trading practices and their economic practices? >> i think there may be some elements on investment, tackling the problems, the challenges of china's intellectual property
10:12 am
theft, concerns there. it's not going to be through tariffs. we're going to end up hurting ourselves more than we actually end up hurting china at all by thinking about tariff as the solution to the problem all >> leland: all right, chad, it was nice to see you. thanks for your expertise. >> kristin: 100 coffins have been moved to the dmz to collect the remains of u.s. soldiers killed during the korean war, that began more than 50 years ago. the returning of the remains is a sign of good faith from the north korean regime following u.s. suspension of military training exercises in south korea after the trump/kim summit earlier this month in singapore. the pentagon called the joint exercises with south korea defensive in nature while the president called them provocative during the singapore summit, agreeing with kim jong un. >> leland: coming up, crews surveying the damage left behind after severe flooding sent hound dreads running from their homes in texas.

there's even a better chance for those isolated tornadoes tomorrow as the system kind of comes together, moves farther to the north, at least where the boundaries are and all the conditions sit. this is looking in portions of kansas for your sunday. this is a better chance of seeing some of that severe weather which, again, includes the large hail, the damaging winds and at least the chance of some isolated tornadoes there for the plains states. the other story across the country, it begins to be brutally dry in the desert southwest. we have elevated fire danger as we talk about low humidity in some of the states with winds getting up to 30 miles an hour. that spreads the fires. we're talking about portions of northern california where they battled some fires for the last year or so. there are plenty of weather stories out there that folks need to pay attention to the rest of the weekend. >> leland: you'll be paying attention to it for us. >> adam: yes, i will. >> leland: adam, thanks. >> kristin: can i explain about the humidity here? doesn't so man seem like that's. >> leland: go ahead.

10:21 am
sarah sanders says this image is misleading, tweeting this. quote, it's shameful that dems and the media exploited this photo of a little girl to push their a jen da. she was not separated from her mom. the separation here is from the facts. dems should join potus and fix our broken immigration system. now, time magazine added a correction to the original story but the publication says it still stands by its cover. they say it captures the truth of the administration's child separation policy and in a statement time said in part, quote, the june 12th photograph of the 2-year-old girl became the most visible symbol of the ongoing immigration debate in america for a reason. our cover and our reporting capture the stakes of this moment. another tweet being panned this morning as racist by some critics is from former governor mike huckabee who tweeted a
10:22 am
photo of ms-13 gang members, what appears to be ms-13 gang members with tattoos and no shirts and he tweeted this statement, nancy pelosi introduces her campaign committee for the takeback of the house. this past week, alabama country musician philip mccain apologized after he was fired from his band and received death threats for posting a facebook status in which he said he would volunteer to shoot people when they approach the border. kristin. >> kristin: that was a lot of controversy. thank you for clearing it up for us, brian. >> leland: much more on this and the continuing coverage of the immigration debate tomorrow on media buzz, howie will speak to former white house communications director anthony scar new -- scraramucci, 11:00 a.m. eastern. >> kristin: when we come back, what the immigration fight over family separation means for the midterms and president trump

>> kristin: president trump will be speaking today at the republican state convention in nevada shortly. you'll see it here live. it's trump's second trip to the state since taking office. he will be in campaign mode, rallying his base as the gop push to protect its majority in washington by winning key races in the battleground state. dan springer joins us live from las vegas with all the details. hey, dan. >> reporter: hey, kristin. we're expecting air force one to touch down here in las vegas within the next half hour. then the president will come
10:28 am
over here to the hotel. he will have a short fundraiser and then be the keynote speaker at the gop state convention for the nevada party and from there he heads over to a round table discussion. there he will talk about tax reform. we can expect to hear a lot about the economy and especially the turnaround in nevada which last year led the nation in job growth with a rate of 3.3%, more than double the national rate. trump will also make this a campaign stop for nevada senator dean heller. he's widely considered the most vulnerable republican in the senate. trump lost nevada two years am it's a state with a large and growing hispanic population. a survey done in mid-april had the president with a 39% favorability rating in no have danevada.heller said he's happye linked to trumps job performance. >> we're talking about the tax code, the job creation, the fact
10:29 am
that there were 30,000 new jobs a month, year after year, here in the state of nevada because of the successes of the tax bill. i'll tell you, it resonates. >> reporter: heller's on poach t is jackie roseen. that same poll showed roseen with little name recognition but virtually tied with heller at 39%. rose n is going to make immigration a major issue, already out with an ad hammering president trump forceps prating families at -- for separating families at the border. we can expect to hear a lot about immigration from trump today. the question is, what will happen state-wide in november and country-wide in the midterm election. >> kristin: thanks so much, dan springer in las vegas for us. >> leland: now perhaps we get answers or some opinions. a new poll says immigration even
10:30 am
above the economy is issue number one for the midterm elections. so does it make sense for republicans and democrats to make a deal or stay in their corners and blame the other side? joining us now to discuss, radio host wade smith and garland misson. nice to see both of you. wade, do republicans have an exposed flank here if they can't get something done, given how much the american people want immigration reform? >> it's one of those situations where democrats had their opportunity when they had the super majority back a couple years ago. republicans i would like to see them get something done but going into the midterms, democrats just want this as an issue that they can campaign on and if republicans get it done, they get it done, great. if they don't, it's another year of elections. >> leland: garland, to you, it seems as though we have republicans digging in their heels. democrats though also are digging in their heels. there's not a lot of appetite
10:31 am
for compromise. you agree with wade that it's better as a campaign issue? >> i think the democrats know that traditionally the incumbent party is kind of swimming against the tide going into the midterms and the republicans have the majorities in both houses so they have to make the case of what they've accomplished. so far, they seem to be arguing or the president seems to be arguing, hey, our majority isn't big enough which is still admission that they haven't gotten the things they wanted to get accomplished. the democrats i think have the upper hand. >> leland: clearly republicans haven't gotten everything they wanted done done. let's take a listen to some of the rhetoric coming from both sides. tucker carlson last night with his thoughts on those calling republicans evil. take a listen. >> the thing about pure evil is you can't reason with it. you can't negotiate with pure evil or reach some kind of compromise with pure evil. pure evil can only be destroyed by force. given that, it's not surprising
10:32 am
that the left is now mobilizing to harass, fire and if necessary physically attack anyone who disagrees with them on immigration because the other side, again, pure evil. >> leland: and we saw evidence of this continuing last night. the tweet this morning from sarah sanders, it's shameful that democrats and the media exploited this photo of a little girl to push their agenda. she was not separated from her mom, separation here is from the facts. dems should join potus and fix the broken immigration system. she tweeted she was asked to leave a restaurant last night because she works for the president. she said she left and then secretary nielsen also protested and forced to leave a restaurant, take a listen. >> shame! shame! shame! shame! shame! shame! shame! >> leland: really, these are the tactics of the democrats? >> i think ultimately what it's
10:33 am
going to come down to is this. when we get to the midterms, it's not going to be about the conversations about the policy, it's going to be about whether the republicans can get a policy through. so right now the people who are the angriest and the people who are acting out the most, they're going to be there and they're going to be voting but they only get to vote once. who can get -- can the republicans get legislation through and convince the independents and the people who aren't out there in the street or who aren't doing the over-the-top things, that's who they're going to have to focus on. they're going to have to ignore the people who are kind of the mosmost outlandish. >> leland: it's more difficult to ignore the people who are the most outlandish. does this play into the republicans' hands? it seems like it may motivate undecided voters back to the republican side. >> it definitely will push voters back to the republican side with the way that nielsen's getting treated, with the way sarah sanders is getting treated. republicans love sarah sanders. democrats may not like her. they may not be able to stand
10:34 am
her. republicans think of her as a sweetheart. she's fighting for donald trump every day. the reason we're in this situation is because the policy beforehand was 20 days in a detention sender for a family, -- center for a family, you're released. this can't stand. whether or not the republicans get something passed, it's not going to change the fact that the republicans will win in the midterms. >> leland: garland, you get the final word. >> if we recall back to 2010, under obama, the democrats had a majority in both houses and they weren't able to produce as much as most people who hav would ha. they kind of have taken a beating. the republicans are talking a lot. they've got the majority. if they don't produce, they'll pay. >> leland: do you worry the kind of rhetoric we're seeing now pushes sort of moderate or undecided republicans back to being hard core republicans when they see how people are being treated? >> i do believe that that kind of rhetoric is unhealthy..
10:35 am
i don't think it changes the voters. >> leland: really. >> i think the people that are going to vote republican are going to vote republican. the people that are undecided are looking at the issues. >> leland: why do you think there are not democrats calling out fellow call them progressives, call them whatever you want, for this kind of personalization and the rancor and i hav vitriol that we're seg now, is there no line for democrats. >> we used to call it on the left obama derangement syndrome. i think we have trump derangement syndrome. i think some people are emotionally triggered by donald trump that they're making bad decisions and they're acting in way that's are unhealthy for our society. i don't think it's a new phenomenon. >> there's a line, it's the party line for democrats. that's the only line for them. >> leland: gentlemen, we appreciate it, both of you. wade, garland, good to see you guys. thank you.

>> kristin: that was bruce willis sacrificing his life to save the world in the movie armageddon in 1998. if the movie were made today it may be one step closer to reality because this week president trump directed the pentagon to do something that hasn't been done in over 70 years, create a new branch of the military. the space force. he says it's needed to counter growing threats in space, not just from asteroids but from
10:41 am
adversaries like china and russia. what would a space force do and what's the chance of congress approving it? joining us to hopefully answer some of these questions is doug levaro. doug, thanks for being with us. what exactly would a space force look like? what would it do and do you support it? >> first of all, kristin, i absolutely support it. i think it's the right idea. many of us have been working on this for many, many years and it's -- i'm glad that president trump finally saw the way to make it happen. >> kristin: what would it do? what would it be? >> it's a great question. it's undefined. it would take over the role of what the air force does in space today but probably so much more. i think everybody knows we have a missile defense agency. we don't have an actual service responsible for missile defense critical for the nation. that would probably become a responsibility for the space
10:42 am
force. >> kristin: would the space force be like this to the air force on would it be a totally separate entity? >> to be defined. certainly folks have talked about a space corps being part of the air force. that was legislation proposed two years ago, a year and-a-half ago. it's likely that in the future we're going to need a separate space force. whether or not we do it in one step or two steps is i think really the question. >> kristin: the space core proposal that came up about a year ago, the idea behind that was similar but it received a lot of opposition from president trump's own defense secretary, jim madis. he said i oppose the he creation of an additional military service. a lot of people in the pentagon don't like this. why? >> i think it was in general mad mattis' quote. a lot of people see it as
10:43 am
unnecessary bureaucracy. >> kristin: why do you see it as not? >> the question is it unnecessary bureaucracy. the army made the argument against the air force. to truly reach the potential that we want for space force, you need people who exist just for space. and this is really the cultural -- a cultural extent of the question. it's more how do you create a force who is focused on defending the united states' interest from, through and in space and we don't have that today. and we need it. >> kristin: especially now more than ever. the dangers are greater now than they've ever been before. what are they they. >?>> i think as most listeners probably know we've seen anti-satellite tests from the likes of china and russia over the last 10 years, china blew up their own satellite in 2007.
10:44 am
and we are not prepared for that. we have been existing in a world since at least 1992 where space has been a sanctuary for u.s. forces. that's not the future. >> kristin: couldn't the space force potentially violate the outer space treaty which the u.s. signed onto, said we wouldn't militaryize space? how do we not violate that and then prompt a greater arms race with china and russia in outer space. >> many people misunderstand the outer space treaty. it doesn't prohibit war in space. it restricts the moon and other bodies for peaceful uses but it does not say outer space. the major signatories at the time, the u.s. and soviet union were using space for military purposes. >> kristin: i stand correctly. this week defense secretary mattis said the space force would be used for defensive purposes only. we'll see. final question, capitol hill, this all hinges on whether or not congress would approve this. do you think congress will?
10:45 am
>> i do. as you know, the house has been supportive over the last two years. chairmanrogers has outlined the problem and several solutions for this over the last several years. the senate has been questioning it. but they also know that we're broken in space and we need to do something. with the president's endorsement, i think this will go forward. >> kristin: when you have trump supporters at one of his rallies chanting space force, space force, that probably gives congress a little push as well. >> exactly right. >> kristin: this has to be an exciting time. >> it is exciting. thank you so much. >> leland: still ahead, protests in london now two years after the brexit vote. more on the fallout, what it means for us at home. and saudi arabia is going to allow women behind the wheel, lifting their historic ban on driving. >> i would like going places, i love traveling, i would love going by myself, so if you know
10:46 am
driving, there's no need to depend on someone. now i have to depend on my father to go anywhere. when i study, i don't have to depend on someone. i can go by myself. healthier pet in 28 days. purina one. natural ingredients, plus vitamins and minerals in powerful combinations. for radiant coats, sparkling eyes, and vibrant energy. purina one. 28 days. one visibly healthy pet. the first survivor of ais out there.sease and the alzheimer's association is going to make it happen. but we won't get there without you. visit to join the fight. i'm still giving it my best even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'm up for that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk
10:47 am
better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. so what's next? seeing these guys. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you.

>> kristin: more than 70 people have fallen ill after a norovirus outbreak swept through a u.s. cruise ship, a holland america ship that was docked in alaska friday. it's expected to make more stops before returning to seattle next month. there are more than 2,000 passengers and crew on-board. no thank you. >> leland: we all remember the brexit vote, the u.k. voting to leave the european union. they're still in the e.u. and now almost two years later thousands are in the streets demanding a refe referendum ovea final exit deal. kitty logan is live in london as protests continue on the anniversary of the vote. >> reporter: up to 100,000 protesters out on the streets today, what is essentially a pro-e.u. march. organizers say more people are starting to have doubts of the final outcome of brexit.
10:51 am
these demonstrators are calling on the government to hold a public vote on the final terms of the brexit deal, two years after the vote to leave. those details are still being hammered out with the e.u. many protesters say while they expect the outcome of the referendum two years ago, they want a say in how britain leaves the e.u. and those details are still unclear. once they're determined, they will be subject to a vote in parliament. people here in this protest say the public should also have a say in that decision because they fear the company could be worse off if the wrong deal is done. there are of course others amongst the crowd who don't want brexit to happen at all. the issue of brexit is as device i've now as it was on the day of the referendum. there was a pro brexit demonstration in london today. it was somewhat smaller. supporters backing britain to leave the e.u. are not happy about the progress of
10:52 am
negotiations and they're pressuring the government not to compromise. all this uncertainty is making some companies pretty nervous. on friday, the airline manufacturer airbus said that if britain leaves the e.u. with no deal, it may consider relocating elsewhere, a cost of 14,000 jobs. two years ago the vote split 52% in favor, 48% against britain leaving the e.u. but in that referendum, the terms of any exit deal were not made clear and that, leland, continues to be a sticking point with brexit. >> leland: some tough decisions for theresa may coming up. kitty, thank you. >> kristin: right now in california's mountains there's an effort under way to build a state of the art facility for america's wounded warriors. trace gallagher gives us a closer look. >> reporter: former marine staff sergeant ronnie himinez has faced steeper climbs. after being hit by an i.e.d. in

afghanistan five years ago, this one is significant because he never thought it would happen. >> you never lose your will to fight. for me, that's the biggest thing. >> reporter: he's after all a marine, see always faithful, als inspired. >> it's adapt and overcome things they tell you in the marine corps, adapt and overcome. you don't forget these things. >> reporter: he says without the wounded warriors programs, many injured vets would resign themselves to stay inside a dark room, missing the light of day and the lift of their comrades. julia shram is a former army ranger, injured on patrol in el salvador in 2001. he was told he would never walk again and 51 surgeries later here he is, walking and climbing. >> oh, man. >> we try try a lot harder thae average person does. >> reporter: he is anything but
10:54 am
average, which is evident when you see the high bar he sets for himself and others. >> there's a lot of people in the programs that think they can't and they look at me and they go if he can do it, then i can do it. it pushes you. it doesn't let you sit there and feel sorry for yourself. it gets you up. >> reporter: up is the place former marine captain sarah betenkor wanted to be, specifically flying a co helicopter. brain inflammation and paralysis lefteleft her grounded until no. >> i thought i couldn't go rock climbing. i can't move my legs. i told the program directors i want to try it but it's not going to happen. >> look how high you are. >> reporter: her trek to the top was a personal best. roy crowdie serves as a remindser that warriors have been sacrificing for centuries. his injury came last century, in
10:55 am
korea, when he lost his leg to a land mine and now he has 85 years of perspective to pass along. >> my purpose is to come back for the others. i'm not doing it for myself because if i'm not rehabilitated by now, i never will be. >> reporter: this center is being built with zero federal dollars. it would give our injured veterans recreation, rehabilitation, and education all in one spot. they have sacrificed a lot for us, maybe we could sacrifice for them. it is woundedwarriorsma'a, great cause. >> kristin: great cause and a great part of the country, absolutely beautiful up there. we are awaiting air force one landing in las vegas. president trump is about to be landing to give a speech, the new nevada republican party state convention and he will -- >> leland: then he's got a round table about tax reform. we heard from dan springer
10:56 am
earlier that much of this is focused on the senate race in nevada that the gop thinks is possibly a vulnerable seat. we'll hear from the president about immigration. this is something he'll have to deal with all the way through the midterms. obviously live coverage of the speech today just about one hour from now. >> kristin: i'm sure immigration is going to be a huge focus of that speech as well as much as he wants to probably talk about the economy and tax reform and his big tax cuts. >> leland: we've seen some of these round tables occasionally get off topic, every once in a while. >> kristin: just a little bit. >> leland: something that never gets off topic, "the journal editorial report," they're up next, live coverage of president trump as it happens. alright, i brought in new max protein
