12:00 pm
paul: welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot and we begin this week with a dramatic end to supreme court's term, justice kennedy announcing retirement wednesday giving president trump his second vacancy to fill and a once in a generation chance to cement conservative control of nation's highest court. 81-year-old stepping down after 30 years and setting confirmation bat until the senate just before the midterm elections. let's bring in wall street journal columnist and deputy editor dan henninger, bill mcgurn, alyysia finley and james
12:01 pm
toronta. what difference without kennedy? >> he was the most heterodox, has strong views on subjects but they don't always line up with the traditional liberal conservative, very much in favor of gay rights, free speech, whether liberal or conservative free speech and he was sometimes wild card. most likely new justice will be line up with the other four republican. paul: that could be the case, dan, it's interesting, if you look at first amendment juris prudence, kennedy was very strong, wrote the citizens united decision, for example, on campaign finance and free speech
12:02 pm
and there's no guaranty that his replacement even if so-called conservative is going to be as strong on first amendment or even on state rights. >> well, that's right. all of these nominees in supreme court, intelligent person have their own mind, they are able to identify whether they will vote most of the time with conservatives or the liberals but there's no real predicting and a lot of the issues have been in play, i think, the first amendment is going forward is going to be a big one as people begin to argue that the first amendment should give weight to things like speech in the last term justice gorsuch in one of interesting he said he would like to revisit fourth amendment on searches and seizures. he thinks it's unclear. the court ought to do house-cleaning there. it's a little hard to predict other than what james suggest probably the next nominee will align with conservatives, almost
12:03 pm
certainly. paul: alyysia, let's talk about politics, we have seen democrats react with horror, they are still sore over merrick garland approved in president obama's last year in office. congress confirm maryland judges in midterm years. >> i think that's right. kagen, justice scalia, several nominees from both parties had confirmed during midterm year. paul: filibuster is no -- >> you can blame harry reid for that in 2013 because he we wanted to pack the dc circuit so that they could reinforce the obama regulations. paul: that was for appellate courts. >> that's right. paul: with gorsuch nomination, the republicans decided to get rid of it for supreme court nominations but that's in part because the democrats opposed
12:04 pm
gorsuch. >> they didn't want to allow confirmation, you saw manchin, three democrats did vote but they would not have allowed trump to get any nominee on to the court. paul: they supported gorsuch and they wouldn't have unless the republicans had shown an advance that they had the votes to confirm. >> that's right. paul: democrats would have been a lot smarter to support gorsuch and retain filibuster for this nomination. >> absolutely, they have nothing going in. couple things, the fact that they are reacting so strongly tells us the supreme court looms too large in our life. paul: could not agree more, bill. >> personal believes for the law, that's a problem whichever side comes out. i think one of justice kennedy's great contributions, though, in those decisions where it went south was justice scalia's greatest memorable phrases about
12:05 pm
fortune cookies and so forth. but i think that the reason the supreme court, especially large for the left, their preferred legislature. they would rather work through and get 5 justices to put something through that couldn't make it through the democratic system especially on state by state basis and that's why they are so very upset at this. paul: james, our friends on the left are already saying this is going to be the end of abortion rights, the end of gay marriage, but i really do not see that happening even with a fifth conservative vote. i think certainly chief justice roberts will be very cautious about overturning any of these -- those precedents. >> i think gay marriage is here to stay. how would you undo all of the marital contracts entered into by the people all over the country. on abortion it's quite possibly that eventually roe versus wade
12:06 pm
will be overturned, it would take at least 6 justices, they will proceed cautiously. paul: i'm not sure conservatives on the court will overturn roe v. wade, it would be disruptive. dan, what do you think? >> i think that's right especially whereon roberts being chief justice, he's aware of the court's reputation, i think that part is overblown. make no mistake, the liberals are going to elevate this issue during the battle over abortion rights, women's rights, minority rights, health rights, they will try to make it a big political issue, problem is that could animate conservatives and republicans to turn out in november. i think the democrats are in a very, very tough spot with this nomination politically. paul: all right, thank you all, when we come back from free speech, a look at kennedy's legacy and how supreme court likely to change with his

12:10 pm
paul: ronald reagan appointee justice anthony kennedy was at the center of many court's biggest decisions over the last 3 decades casting the key vote in landmark cases involving abortion, affirmative action, gay rights and guns and campaign finance. editor-in-chief of the cato and i spoke with him about the kennedy legacy. >> welcome. let's talk about justice kennedy and legacy, you wrote this week while you end up agreeing where justice came out on a lot of cases, you disagree with the way he got there, explain that. >> part of the rule of law isn't just getting the right results but the reasoning matter, that's why the supreme court explained itself, so people can follow how the law develops, what it means, what the constitution means and justice kennedy didn't follow
12:11 pm
kind of conventional juris methods, the purpose of given law or anything in particular, people tried to evaluate, i certainly did how he got to the answer in a lot of different areas of law but often there was simple inscrewedability or the idea that civilized society doesn't pass laws that harm people, for example, rather than importing national right theory of the law or involving constitutionalism. i agree with him a lot. probably the most libertarian justice, that's allow bar, a bit of a black box as well. paul: i agree with you on the racial juris prudence, he didn't give clear guidance even though he was swing vote on university racial preferences but on the
12:12 pm
first amendment, for example, i think that he had actually a very clear sense of what was legal and constitutional under the first amendment, he provided the key vote, for example, he wrote the opinion on citizens united and had a lot of the first-amendment cases gone the other way, we would have a diminished free speech right. >> yeah, that's one of the exceptions that proves the rule that i was talking before absolutely, justice kennedy was not the swing amendment on first amendment cases, citizens united or other. the most free speech justice that we've had in quite some time, maybe ever. you saw that in several opinions that term this past week whether with the compelled speech with public sector unions or pregnancy centers. paul: let me push back again, if you want to describe kennedy's
12:13 pm
juris prudence, personal liberty that led him to social left on abortion rights and gay rights, on free speech and gun rights and property rights the right. that was consistency of the court of juris prudence, what do you think about that? >> you're trying to make consistent claims and i don't think it holds up. you mentioned property rights, he was one of the votes for the government, for the development agency that you can take property from a private business, individual and give it to another private actor and so, again, it's part of the contextualize issue areas, certainly he was for personal liberty in many ways but not in the way that libertarian, not in the way that cato or institute or scholars might like. he didn't apply national rights theory or any other way that you
12:14 pm
might describe like gorsuch, neil gorsuch, i think is dedicated to and so it really depends on how it fit into his view of the world in certain cases the structural protection be that federalism, separation of powers was important and he was a key vote on the obamacare case, for example, fully in line with striking it all down but in other examples, race versus gonzález, the federal government can regulate plants that you grow in your own backyard, medical marijuana. paul: all right, fair enough. there's inconsistency there. in the balance i would say he did strike -- he did tend to support cases that helped a clear definition of the separation of powers. but i want to talk about nile gorsuch, first year on the court, very important term. howhow do you think he did? >> i think he did really well. he very quickly has become my favorite justice. he's the only ph.d on the court
12:15 pm
and his approach is very philosophical, first principles oriented. you sauna his opinion in carpenter versus united states relating to whether the police need a warrant to get cell phone location data and although technically gorsuch was descending from the ruling against criminal defendant for the government, that was concurrence in all but name. he had technical reasons there but calling for a fundamental rethink of fourth amendment juris prudence not to be tied to 50-year-old precedent of reasonable expectation of privacy which after judge. he focused on property right aspect of fourth amendment, gorsuch looked at have you taken steps to protect your personal effects and papers, whether that's digital, contractual, property or otherwise. you can see that again and again in textual and first principle constitutional cases, he really wants to go back to that well.
12:16 pm
paul: one question about the future of the court after justice kennedy, a lot of people on the left are saying that roe v. wade, abortion rights in jeopardy. >> not roe v.wade. with john roberts becoming the median justice, which is the case we have another gorsuch, he's incrementalist and minimalist, i doubt that he would want sweeping overrulings of a whole slew of controversial precedents but he would be more likely to uphold restrictions, so some of the restrictions that have been overturned or struck down in the last little while on abortion and other things would be upheld without necessarily overturning some of these long-standing precedents. paul: gives state a chance to regulate a little more but upholding the fundamental right. thank you very much for being here. appreciate it.
12:17 pm
>> my pleasure. paul: still ahead blockbuster this week to banner supreme court term, from first amendment rights, public union workers to president trump's travel ban, our panel looks back at justice nile gorsuch's first year on the court and anthony kennedy's last. come here, babe. ok. nasty nighttime heartburn? try new alka-seltzer pm gummies. the only fast, powerful heartburn relief plus melatonin so you can fall asleep quickly. ♪ oh, what a relief it is!

12:19 pm
12:20 pm
12:21 pm
paul: even without kennedy announcement the supreme court this week wrapped up what can only be described as blockbuster turn. justices handing president trump a big one in travel ban an public sector a big defeat in order to complect fees. back with dan henninger, james taranto. >> janus alone is a big one. this is a huge victory. victory substance subsequently for the first amendment but it's a huge defeat for a lot of the democrat interest groups because they've used this money that they were able to coerced from people in politics. i think like wise the first amendment case in pregnancy
12:22 pm
centers in california not compel today give out information. the travel ban, i think the travel ban is separate category. anyone but president trump that wouldn't have been an issue. what's interesting about this with kennedy, normally he's known to be the fifth guy voting with the liberals on a case. 19-5-4 decisions and none of this -- paul: any other cases that you cite this year? >> i think the carpenter decision which came out last week where justice roberts sided with liberals in expanding basically fourth amendment to cell phone records and cell phone data and the way he did so was easy and will be extended and fourth amendment has never applied to third-party data, could make it harder for law enforcement and national security to do their job.
12:23 pm
paul: dan, what do you make of nile gorsuch's first term? >> i thought gorsuch began to establish himself as a clear and independent voice and as shapiro was suggesting in interview, nile gorsuch, a young member of the court, probably he will be joined by another young member of the court and some of these younger judges, i think feel that over the years the supreme court has become -- a lot of the law is unclear in areas like the fourth amendment, possibly in the first amendment as well and i think he's going to spend a lot of his time going forward being the voice of clarity about the constitution on the court and i wouldn't be surprised if the new judge joining him say amy, for instance, from notre dame if she's the nominee, appellate court in dc, will join him in that effort.
12:24 pm
paul: james, what about the liberals this year? they won a couple of cases certainly with carpenter, what do you make of the divide that i think you see emerging between brier and kagen and sotomayor. >> we have seen it for a while. in the obama case 2012, kagen and brier joined conservatives in striking -- limiting the medicate expansion. this is something that we have been seeing for a while. sotomayor and ginsburg, seem to be about issuing creed in favor of vision of quality or what have you and it is an interesting divide, it's not entirely homoagain -- homogeneous. paul: she goes with chief justice to form majority as long as narrow decision.
12:25 pm
the baker got the right not to bake the wedding cake for -- >> or the administrative law case which she wrote 6-3 ruling with three liberals on the other side. paul: that's correct. in both cases you had narrow ruling, not a landmark ruling on the fundamental constitutional principle, do you agree with that? >> yes, master piece cake shop was kennedy ruling, reached middle ground result because he was balancing two values, gay rights on the one hand and freedom of conscious on the other. paul: any big take away, james, from you, any other take away? >> i think the biggest thing these two cases that came out this week, janus case on union agency fees and the case on crisis pregnancy centers. you cannot require people to say things that they don't believe and that was an important to be
12:26 pm
said. paul: dan, is the chief justice going to emerge as the swing vote, do you think? >> yes, i don't think there's any question about that and it's going to be remarkable because chief justice normally is not the swing vote and that puts justice roberts in a very powerful position both distributing cases and maybe deciding ultimately which way the court is going to go in the future. paul: you agree with that? >> i agree with dan and part of the reason chief he would like fewer 5-4 decisions even it's narrower and the chief has latitude about caking cases themselves so i think we will see interesting maneuvers, look, i hope at the end of the day it means that a lot of cases get to supreme court, should go back to the american people to decide. >> all right, thank you all, still ahead, the president takes on harley davidson after the motorcycle manufacturer announces plans to move some production overseas. so has retaliation begins for the trump tariffs, will other swing state industries follow?
12:27 pm
we will ask ron johnson next. >> so harley davidson is using that as excuse and i don't like that because i've been good to harley davidson.

12:31 pm
often times, it's a harley and the sound of harley is a little different, i have to tell you, thank you harley davidson. paul: that was president trump last year praising harley davidson as american icon. the president striking a decided different tone this week after the motorcycle maker announced it would move the production of europe bounds bike overseas, result of retaliatory tariffs enacted by the european union last week. tweeting tuesday that the move would be the beginning of the end of the company. joining me now is republican senator ron johnson of wisconsin, home of harley davidson's headquarters, welcome senator. so you're a businessman, you were before you got to the senate, you know what it takes to make money, what do you make of harley davidson's move of some production overseas? >> well, they are being
12:32 pm
competitive and we are facing tariffs on products into europe from 6% to 31% when they are facing raw material steel price increases because of the generalized tariffs on steel and aluminum. they can't sell their products, they are going to lose the markets, they will lose the sales and they would either lose workers here in wisconsin because they don't have the sales or they have the opportunity to produce these things overseas where they can buy steel at market prices and that could charge tariff going to europe. they are put in a horrible situation and i heard members of this administration talk about short-term pain for long-term gain and no doubt some of that short-term pain would be temporary but some immediate and permanent and this is one of the decisions. i talked to ceo of harley, maybe they could reverse decision but if this doesn't get taken care of, permanent loss of jobs and very unfortunate. paul: if you're making long-term investment decision in the tens
12:33 pm
of millions, maybe a hundred million dollars, you're not reversing that once you start to make that decision. >> paul, i also talked -- a woman came in with a group of people that supplied the trucking industry, he's been in the building for 20 years, $50 million worth of sales, she told me if this isn't fictioned in the next few weeks, she's out of business in 3 months. again, permanent immediate pain. paul: okay, some of your colleagues have been talking about trying to take back some of the power that congress has given the president on trade for many decades, bob corker was offering amendment on the senate to restrict the definition of national security under section 232, do you support the effort? >> i was one of the early cosponsors, i'm not sure we have to do it immediately but i think certainly over time congress must regain so much of the power and this is one of the areas in
12:34 pm
terms of tariffs. we need to reclaim that power. let's face it, we need an executive to negotiate trade deals but should be negotiated with full consultation and the deals should come back to congress for ratification and approval. paul: you know, senator i talked to colleagues about this, i would say that by far the majority of the republicans agree with you on this and yet your leadership has not wanted to have a vote, they did move one this week but blocked by democrats, brown on the floor, are more of your colleagues getting concerned about that and economic impact? >> sure because they also had businesses like i just -- whether it's harley davidson or one manufacturer who i can't name because they fear retaliation. 30,000 waivers have been requested by the commerce department of the tariffs, 30,000 situations where people are, again, experiencing the short-term pain, this is not republicanism, this isn't
12:35 pm
conservative economics when we literally have, what, now commerce department operating which business is going to succeed and fail. no, more and more republicans senators will be hearing from constituents and they are going to be hearing of these situation where is it's going to be immediate and permanent pain to long-term strategy. paul: so what recourse do you have in congress to actually make the president change course i guess other than speaking, any recourse you have? >> we really don't because even if we were to pass in senate i'm not sure it would pass through the house and certainly vetoed. i don't know if we would be passing measure with veto-proof majority. all we really can do is continue to point out the real-world examples of the immediate and permanent pain caused by this trade war. paul: all right, let me ask you a question before we go about the president's summit with vladimir putin, is it a good idea for him to meet with putin and what -- do you have any advice for the president?
12:36 pm
>> well, on sunday i'm fly to go moscow myself and i'm going to join the delegation of, i think, 4 or 5 other members of congress. we need to be talking to -- to all of our adversaries. russia has 7,000 nuclear weapons, their aggression is destabilizing so many areas of the world. i sure wish russia was no worst than friendly rival as opposed to unfriendly adversary it is right now. i'm for talking to people and try to turn down the heat and try to find areas of cooperation. paul: okay, are you worried about any kind of a deal, for example, crimea or eastern ukraine to russia? >> absolutely, we need to address russia with strength and resolve and real cooperation, same thing is true with north korea as well. we have to treat both of these adversaries through position of strength and resolve. paul: all right, good luck on the russia trip. thanks for coming in. when we come back, stunning upset in new york primary oust a

paul: a stunning defeat tuesday for the fourth ranking democrat in the house. new york crowely top candidate to replace house speaker nancy pelosi was defeated by a 28-year-old new comer, alexandria ocasio-cortez, organizer for the bernie sanders campaign and a self-described democratic socialist. we are back with dan henninger, allyisa finley and kate
12:41 pm
bachelder odell. so allysia, how did she do it? >> she ran on progressive platform, sing-payer health care and abolishing ice which is exactly a new one here. paul: immigration enforcement. >> immigration and customs enforcement and she went down to the border, made issue of the family separation policy and meanwhile crowely really took race for granted. 10 to 1 funding advantage but i don't think he saw this coming. paul: if he had 10 to 1 funding advantage he spent a lot of money on the race so he must have thought that there was a real contest here, has the district changed, was there allow turnout? >> there was high progressive turnout and i think especially among young people, she did really well with area where you have young millennials moving in and they really thought, we need
12:42 pm
to have generational change and she played to, you know, identity politics, puerto rican, campaigning against the white middle-aged man. paul: we have a real problem these days. kate, what message are the democrats who are back in congress going to take from this? >> well, it's interesting, paul, there's been talk back and forth in democratic party about whether this is aberration or sign of larger problem for democrats, right, i tend to think that there are unique characteristics to this district and how it's changed over the past 20 years since crowely started representing that do make it unique but also really energizes the movement and cortez said in victory night that they need a whole caucus of democratic socialists and i think she's committed to making that happen. paul: and ocasio-cortez, she will put scare on so many other democrats because even if there
12:43 pm
are characteristics of this district, unique characteristics, that doesn't mean that they will still not say, hey, i don't want a primary that this will happen to me. >> that's right, paul, i do think victory is probably a little bit overstated. i think joe crowely lost touch with constituents but the liberal press is suggesting this will have big implications in the house of representatives. they're arguing that nongy pelosi who would be speaker if they won in november is old and her number 2 from maryland is a white male and this means that the house is becoming more diverse, meaning more women and more minorities and even suggesting that nang you pelosi could face a challenge say from a member of the black caucus. paul: kate, do you think this signals more polarization in the house if the democrats do take control in november which i think there's a very good chance they will. >> oh, absolutely, paul. i mean, some things she's
12:44 pm
proposing are things really want but some are afraid to commit to like large tax increases to fund social security but the only thing i'd ask of her list of policy items was a one-time large student loan forgiveness round. some of these things will get more attention as that problem becomes more acute and i do think this is just going to create a crack-up. paul: you know, it's interesting, allysia, you follow california politics and new york state politics and you see the governors of new york state cuomo very different now, 8 years when he ran as moderate and gavin, democratic candidate for california now much further left. so this primary suggests, i think, it's indication, another indication that the democrats are moving left. >> i think that's right. you also have to point the janus case, one of the reasons, cuomo moves left to gain public union
12:45 pm
support. there are other cultural shifts in the party pushing especially with the resistance to president trump. paul: now, dan, you know, a lot of republicans say, well, they are moving too far left, this is going to cost them elections, that's what the british said about jeremy corbin and almost won the last election. >> yeah, the republicans cannot rest on laurels now, they will take fight to democrats, they made highly rhetorical arguments about stalling part of health care system, inequality and these are argument that is the republicans will have to address, they can't assume that the democrats are self-destructing, that's not going to happen. paul: thank you all, when we come back a compromise immigration bill goes down in the house as they debate over borders taking ugly turn, would the left's rhetoric help or hurt them in midterms? >> good morning.
12:46 pm
>> good morning! or actually -- >> or actually. >> bad morning. >> bad morning. for psoriasis, 75% clearer skin is achievable with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and for psoriatic arthritis, otezla is proven to reduce joint swelling, tenderness, and pain. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. otezla may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. tell your doctor if these occur. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment.

bill mcgurn and kate bachelder odell. kate, why did the immigration bill failed so miserable? >> it's a good question, paul. there are a lot of authors of the failure, one of them was president trump who did not go out and campaign of the bill to try to get it passed. there are other authors too like the freedom caucus who have moved the goal post on what they are interested in getting in exchange for deal on daca and whose on bill goodlatte bill failed on the floor. but the democrats have been cynical about this discussion as well? paul: they want an issue, they think it will help turn out voters, any chance of anything happening on immigration between now and election for example on family unification of the border in. >> the republicans have been working on a bill on that it's not clear where trump is on signing it at this point and that's one reason why it's delayed an not come to a vote or

introduced but -- so i don't see much opportunity unless there's change. one thing that we were discussing is when voters know that both parties are being cynical about having political issue instead of resolving a real problem for young adults who some of them are in the military, i think that's when they start to vote for people who are more radical. paul: dan, where does that leave the moderates, so-called moderate who is were pushing discharge petition to would give legalization for dreamers and also have tougher border security, leaves them high and dry. >> i would say it leaves them on the bubble paul, that's why they wanted the vote. had this incident down at the border with separating mothers and fathers from children not happen, i don't think this would be a big issue in november. it is now and the issue is there are between 20 and 24 republican who is are in very tight battles for their seats, these are not sure republican seats and they have to wonder whether moderate, independent voters in their
12:52 pm
districts are going to punish them for what has happened in the border, that's why they wanted this vote so it's going to be an issue in november for about 20 republicans. paul: both parties, trump seems to think it's a good issue, republicans, democrats think it's a good issue for them. we have seen breakdown of civility on immigration. it's more por alized than ever. what do you make of this call to harass -- >> well, that's the one thing that could turn from the democrats to republicans. i don't think people want to see that. it's intractable in the sense. there are republicans that don't want any compromise because they feel would give path to citizenship or amnesty right, however you define it. paul: deport -- >> live with status qo rather move inch on this correction. democrats allow them to call republicans racist, that benefit -- the status quo does benefit
12:53 pm
the democrats that way and i think that now we've reached a point where it's hard to get any deal before november. paul: you saw, dan, where nancy pelosi and chuck schumer, democratic leaders in congress they basically said, knock it off maxine waters, i don't think that helps us to have call for harassment? >> the question is can the democrats control left, moderate left are in mass protests, invaded restaurant in washington, d.c. where homeland security kirstjen nielsen was having dinner, went to her house, this sort of thing makes a lot of voters uncomfortable. they they it raises the law and order issue and the democrats, i think, they want the protests, they want opposition but they don't want that kind of violence beneath surface. >> i believe with dan entirely except i would say this, what's shocking is how many democrats
12:54 pm
don't condemn what maxine waters is saying. now a lot of people are afraid of her in her own party. paul: what do you think has the advantage on immigration in november? >> i think it hurts both parties but i think it will hurt republicans worst and i think republicans understand them than a small island of them. paul: they are the party in control and haven't solved the problem. all right, we have to take one more break. when we come back hits and misses of the week. there's little rest for a single dad, and back pain made it hard to sleep and get up on time. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid, plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. i'm back. aleve pm for a better am.

1:01 pm
now. >> to know that children can't be with their parents. this is evil! your motion keeps this working. you can choose to stop this. >> agony that these kids face forever is not temporary it is forever! remember in november, that the end to these cruel policies starts with us. >> you can see that raw emotion. jeff paul is covering a big rally in los angeles. good afternoon. >> good afternoon ed. thousands of people talking to the parking downtown la. and this is only getting larger. if i step out of the way you can see there are all sorts of signs out here. have chanting and music. this group is protesting against the separation of
1:02 pm
immigrant children from parents. this is one of hundreds of rallies firing up from coast-to-coast. rallies are pushing for three things. reunite families now, and the family detention and end with they say is inhumanity. celebrities and politicians today lending their voice as they demand better treatment of immigrants and an end to splitting families apart. >> america at its best is big, beautiful and diverse. like our great city of los angeles. it is not small, it is not petty, and not exclusive. we will not relent, we will not retire, we will keep fighting because we are better than this. >> folks are hoping to turn all of this energy from rallies like this into votes in november. they are set to move this rally from here they will march down the street there are nearby detention center where they believe immigrants are being held. >> thank you for the report. they are ready saying in
1:03 pm
remember in november that this is about politics but let's keep it rolling. el paso, texas. protests are also happening. this is a hotspot for controversy surrounding immigration. today's rally happening about 40 minutes from where some separated kids are being sheltered. what are you seeing casey? >> this was fascinating because this is a multifaceted rally. because of its proximity to mexico.behind me is the port of entry and the bridge that gets you from el paso into juarez, mexico. you have protests happening here on the u.s. side and a crowd of 100 or 150 people. one of the smaller crowds we have seen with protests againsa the country. they met with protesters and warez. and they will be coming back to the port of entry later back to
1:04 pm
el paso. for the state being primarily the epicenter of the issue as we said, the crowds estimated at a little more than 100, 150 people. not nearly as large as other cities but you have to remember, there have been countless protests in this region on almost a daily basis for about two weeks. all with pretty much the same plea or message. >> the message i want to send is that this country is a country of immigrants. [inaudible] >> it has to stop. this is inhumane. we will vote them out. >> meantime, plans to move forward to open additional temporary housing facilities for children and adults caught crossing the border illegally.
1:05 pm
the fort bliss army post right here in el paso, up the road from where we are, will be one of the new locations. and then goodfellow air force base in san angelo, texas. that will be another bid with the first minors expecting to be here in july. this to accommodate the most dhs request tasking the pentagon to accept 2000 migrants within the next 45 days. logistics now being worked out on that. a moving story. >> thank you for staying on top of that for us. democrats calling to get rid of the immigration and customs enforcement agency. we know that as i.c.e. the president sat down with maria bartiromo and exclusive sitdown interview and told her it is simply never going to happen.
1:06 pm
>> a 28-year-old socialist that just beat out joe crowley says abolish i.c.e. and get this, more democrats are getting in line with that. gillibrand today saying we need to abolish i.c.e. >> hope they keep thinking about it because it will get beaten so badly. you know these are the guys that go in and take ms-13 and they take them out because they are much tougher than ms-13. like by a factor of 10. and you get rid of i.c.e., you have a country will be afraid to walk out of the house. >> earlier on "america's news headquarters" we asked about the democrats latest push. this is what was said. >> it is just crazy! to first of all, there is she saying abolish i.c.e. to she sing open borders. just tell the rest of the world come on through and then once you get here, the laws don't pertain to you. >> rejoined number dave brown. and a republican political
1:07 pm
consultant, -- singleton. dave, i would like to start with you. a growing number of democrats in office, these are not just outside pungency and whatnot priebus sinners like gillibrand of new york thinking about running for president is saying what next? what do you do to protect the borders to make illegal immigrants are deported? this is not new. we've heard candidates from many offices call for abolition of any number of federal agencies. rick perry of course the department of energy wants to
1:08 pm
call for the abolishment along with the irs, department of education and other agencies for the broader point is this. people are rightly very angry. they are very angry with the crisis at the border preclude angry with the fact they are still over 2000 children who have yet to be reunited with their families. with no meaningful plan to reunite them. when they say abolish i.c.e., they are underscoring the broader crisis that the president has brought by virtue of his immigration policy. >> okay i give you a chance. but i'm sorry, what does abolishing i.c.e. and going after the federal agents partially trying to help us and protect us? what does it have to do with kids at the border? you can say the president has a ready signed an executive order. we can debate that all day but if you want to abolish i.c.e., what is next? will be out there to protect us? >> let me try different way then. i.c.e. was created 15 years ago. before that it was ins. the idea that we would not want to have a broader conversation about whether or not agencies that are enforcing immigration laws is responsibility but there is a broader issue. what is the presidency to build the wall? at one point the campaign where he say all mexicans are rapists? >> that is not what he said.
1:09 pm
that is misquoting the president. >> fine, but when you say -- >> you just said and it is wrong. >> it is an easy way to bring relief abroad side of challenges and problems we are seeing on the border every day with kids being separated. >> what do you think? >> appoints one of the biggest problems i think the democratic party has. you're saying democrats go further and further to the left. they're becoming more progressive. that is a problem because most of the american people are not that far left. if you get rid of i.c.e., what agency is going to protect the border? what agency will protect the security of the american people? it's a fundamental question that individuals advocated for this cannot answer so they go into november democrats risk by going for the left isolating key minority constituents, minority constituents by the way, who particularly
1:10 pm
african-american women, african-american men, hispanics were traditionally conservative people that may say you know what? the rhetoric is too far left me. i may not necessarily vote for a republican but i'm deftly not going to vote for a democrat. >> and i pressed dave a moment ago. i want to press you. the present was tweeted about i.c.e. and immigration reform. made a claim that house republican billy mentioned, there are a couple that went down in flames, frankly. he said he didn't really push republicans i was not really lobbying. i seem to run but actually, if you fact check, and never push the republicans the house, the vote for the immigration bill either the conservative bill number one or two because it could never have gotten enough democrats as long as there is a 60 vote threshold in the senate. i've released many prior to the vote and we need more republicans to win in november. is not a little revisionist history? the president a few days earlier was talking about, and there is also trying to get rid of the filibuster rule for legislation which senator mcconnell says is simply not going to happen. the present went up to capitol hill a week or so ago and was lobbying a republican to pass
1:11 pm
the bill. so i see try to rewrite history? >> to the second point i will start there first. i am a bit cautious to change rules in the senate because let's keep in mind, we want control the senate forever. at some point democrats will and if we change the rules now, we should be mindful that democrats will do whatever they want to do under the guidelines that we have created essentially. so i'm very cautious and skeptical about that. number one, there are about 20 or 24 republicans in the house who are running in district considered moderate districts. those individuals need something to be able to go back to their voters and say look, we intended to pass legislation here. we tried, democrats did not work with this honesty we are not giving them, it would hurt republicans i would argue going into november. >> looked at dave and. you're the president saying with a series of tweets that chuck schumer, the senate democratic leader will block anything anyway. but in fairness, you and i both know that the republicans in the house, have the majority and they couldn't pass
1:12 pm
immigration reform even before it got to the senate. >> i appreciate you noting that. i was in the senate as an aid in 2013 from the past bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform. i said this before on fox and i'll say it again. i think the path is still the same. i think we need to go back to fundamentals. we found a way to overcome our divisions on democrats and republicans coming together in 2013. we found a way to pass with overwhelming majorities in the senate a bipartisan approach. let's have reasonable people come to the table but be willing to actually engage in a dialogue and negotiation. it is not something we have seen to date in the house. >> is an actual thing we said today. reasonable people need to come to the table. so far we have not seen that. we'll see if we get after the midterms. gentlemen, thank you for coming
1:13 pm
in. shifting onto another big story. the vacancy upcoming on the supreme court following justice kennedy and the announcement he will retire effective july 31. the president says he plans to nominate a new justice on july 9. monday after 4 july. one day before he leaves on a trip to europe. it could set in motion a senate confirmation vote. he hopes before the midterm elections. >> i think we're going to have tremendous support. the supreme court, i'm going to make my decision on the monday after july 4. it is a great group. >> gillian turner is one washington with more. >> president trump facing one of the most consequential decisions of the administration. >> outside of war and peace, of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of the supreme court judge. if you get it. as you know there been many presidents that never got a choice.>> he says he plans to pick someone who can serve on the bench for decades p but it is not stopping him from making the decision quickly. he plans to announce his pick on july 9 in time to get a senate vote on his nominee before the november midterm election. >> you should be able to work our way through the confirmation process sometime before early fall.
1:14 pm
hopefully. in time for the new justice to begin the fall term of the supreme court. >> some of the fiercest opponents are not prepping for battle.>> people arising appeared donald trump is not king. no one message to the supreme court without going through the united states senate. and in the united states senate, everyone has a vote. >> the million dollar question now on lawmakers minds? the landmark roe versus wade supreme court case. set president for legalized abortion. >> you can ask a judge how he or she, a judge nominee, how he or she would rule on a specific case. it is inappropriate. but i did get a sense from them on whether or not they respect -- >> democratic leaders are still
1:15 pm
saying and laura ingle mitch mcconnell and the judiciarycomm stole the president obama obama 's chance to appoint a judge. -- it is time for them to reap what they have sown. >> gillian turner, thank you. and the possible reversal overturning of roe versus wade could become one of the most pressing issues for the president the next pick for the court. >> are you going to ask your nominees before hand how they might vote on roe versus wade? >> that is a big one. and probably not. they are all saying don't do that. you don't do that, you shouldn't do that. but i am putting conservative people on. and i'm very proud of neil gorsuch. he has been outstanding. his opinions are you know, so well-written and so brilliant. and i'm going to try and do
1:16 pm
something like that. but i don't think i'm going to be so specific. >> join now live we have a former clerk for justice kennedy. welcome, sir. >> thank you for having me on. >> appreciate it. let's start with roe versus wade. the president actually in the third and final debate moderated by our own chris wallace at fox, chris started all in the supreme court and asked about roe versus wade. the president said he will actively try to overturn it but says he expected two or three pics on the supreme court and would pick pro-life justices. the president said at the time if you check the transcript, that he thought automatically, we would eventually see roe versus wade overturned. do you agree with that? >> no, i think the comments that you just play were correct. no perspective justice should be asked or would answer question about whether there going to vote in a particular case. it is much more important to inquire into the judicial philosophy. which will impact views in the area of law and on a more broad
1:17 pm
level. i also think it is the better, longer term view. because issues of the day, justice could serve in the court for 40 years. 30 years. they don't know what the issues will be in 20, 30 want to know that you will have a judge who will be a justice, who will follow the rule of law and apply a consistent, accurate judicial philosophy. >> your point of over the course of 30 or 40 years, you may nominate someone a think is leaning one way on roe versus wade or an immigration case or anything else. and over time their thinking we assume that with a justice of the court that people thought would be conservative and they turned out to be moderate or liberal. >> right. i think that is why it's important not to focus on what an individual will vote on any particular case. even though you feel strongly about a particular area. it is important to have somebody with the right principles, because regardless of what issues come up over 30
1:18 pm
or 40 years, they are getting more right than wrong if you have the correct principles. >> on that point then, the president has been pretty transparent. 25 people, men and women he said if i get these pics, this is a list i'm picking from. is there one or two people that you think the viewer should be focused on? the stand out to you who is a former clerk to justice kennedy. one or two? >> as a former clerk for kennedy and focused on some of the other former clerks of justice kennedy on the list. two of them have been discussed in the media as being on the even shorter list. judge cavanaugh and -- there are other justices currently being considered, judge amy barrett is one that folks are talking about. but again, the president said he will be interviewing about five or six individuals and he will be making a decision it looks like one week from monday. >> we will see minimansion -- w

1:33 pm
to make up the difference. prices are too high. he has agreed. some say the move is part of a plan to help further isolate iran. there's a lot of protests there right now. and place of economic and political pressures put on the nation. oil prices recently jumped at the white house announced zero-tolerance sanctions against iranian oil importers. the associated press reported they talked about the market and the stability. but the country did not mention 2 million barrel mark set by the president. we'll have to see all of that how it pans out. >> we're going to talk about ukraine, syria, elections. and we do not want anybody tampering with elections. we will be talking about world events. we will be talking about peace. >> that is the president aboard air force one on his way to new jersey last night speaking of what he copes to accomplish with the russian president, vladimir putin. the two are set to meet face-to-face on july 16 in
1:34 pm
finland. let's bring in peter durrant, president for the center for european policy. good to see you peter. >> good to be back, thank you. >> will get to the critics in a minute. there've been many critics of the president especially on his relationship with putin. he says dating back to the campaign he thinks is better u.s. russian relations and will make progress with what i just mentioned, iran, for example. but also more importantly, syria. do you buy that?>> i think the president, when he goes to helsinki, he can bring very fair message to putin. he can say, russia can have a normal relationship with the united states but russia has to act first and show it is serious. russia can do that by fooling -- pulling its troops out of ukraine. it shows that russia series about a normal relationship with the us. >> and putin has shown notes on
1:35 pm
he was to pull them out. is that a reasonable expectation? >> well, right now i think he wants a summit with the president peers so that he can show he is still a great power. this is an opportunity for the president to speak to his guns and pulled -- hold the line. no interfering and elections and not pressuring allison here.if vladimir putin does those things a normal relationship is possible. that is what we will see in helsinki.>> i mentioned the -- no evidence still of collusion as the president says over and over again. he would have to admit it is a bit awkward to be having this summit in the middle of the robert mueller investigation. yes? >> more important than that, russia is not just aggressive towards our system. also with our allies in europe. when the president goes to brussels to confer with our allies, he is going to be in a
1:36 pm
room full of people who are also threatened by russia. this is important and it is an excellent step for the president to speak with allies first. so that they know he is not going to do any deals over their heads. nothing about them without them will have to be a big focus for him when he goes to brussels. >> perhaps you're mentioning brussels, the nato summit before he goes to the one on one deal with putin. let's go back to what happened in canada at the g7. which used to be the g8 but russia got kicked up for this will happen with you crampy will keep your scorecard to keep track of all this at home. my point is that the president at the g7 said maybe it should be the g8 again. as you suggested upset the european allies. there is this idea around the world that maybe the president is trying to split the alliance with the european allies because it lifts vladimir putin
1:37 pm
on the world stage. you buy that? >> actually don't. because i look at the policies like everyone else but you can see a distinction between what the president has done for more president obama did. we see good things like more money for american troops in europe. policy that pushes back against vladimir putin pipeline politics in europe. there a lot of substitute things that should give allies heart. the big question is, what happens when vladimir putin and president trump are together in helsinki? i expect putin will try to flatter trump. he liked to establish that good, personal chemistry without the heads -- with other heads of state. but donald trump will have to hold on what america's fighting for. >> we covered this when he said at the time, i believe that putin was the prime minister. president obama said, in early 2012, after my reelection, transmit this message to vladimir that i will have more flexibility after i get reelected. to maybe do some deals.

just like democrats forget about that coziness that the obama administration had with russia. >> that is correct. in fact, that is exactly what the president is doing. establishing his policies. the key for president trump in helsinki is to tell putin, i'm not good to offer you a reset. i'm not going to offer you one-sided deal like obama did. until you show you are serious about a real relationship with the spirit of the president can do that, then vladimir putin will respond to strength. this is the only thing he truthfully understands. >> real quick i have 15 seconds.we mentioned syria. what's a reasonable expectation when the president says he wants help from putin in syria. this has dragged on. is there something he can get out of the summit? >> if we can find a way to turn the dial of conflict down in syria, i think it could be positive. the important point for president trump to remember is not to give away the store in exchange for promises or empty promises from vladimir putin.
1:39 pm
no one-sided deals will have to be the key. >> in fact, a retired general said putin may want to get u.s. troops out of syria. certainly assad wants a map of the job is not done. progress has been made the general says. in terms of destroying isis. but isis still has remnants in syria. how important is it for president trump to hold the line and say, we are not completely pulling out of syria? we have to first destroy isis. >> when it comes to syria, president trump has defended his line. he defended his positions. i think we could expect some positive conversations about anti-terrorism. about turning the dials of conflict down in syria. if we come out of that summit, this meeting i should say, in helsinki, with an understanding that regard, i think it is a win. the key is, no one-sided giveaways but that is what putin is looking for and trump

1:49 pm
is room to perhaps persuade her. >> the media spends a lot of time talking about civil war and the republican and the party of trump, republicans are not standing up to him. very little has been written about the trouble in the republican party. and -- who has got a very aggressive leftist agenda. is there some trouble on the democratic side? it is a safe seat we should be clear democrats are likely to hold. i don't want to make it seem like they will lose that but there are pockets of the country it seems, where that kind of agenda may backfire in the general election. >> it could, but it remains to be seen how much of a shift to the left the democratic party is actually and four. chelsea manning of course just left her attempt to win in maryland. certain areas could be more left-leaning but there certainly is friction in the democratic party and perhaps that there is trouble with the
