3:02 am
caravan. ainsley: look at all the numbers of the early voting states, the numbers are really high and in favor of republican us, more republicans are going to vote early or have been voting early than the democrats. let's talk about the caravan. steve: which one? because there now are two. this is a fox news alert. "wall street journal" talking about a second caravan currently in guatemala. 2500 people it looks as if they are headed to the same town in mexico where thousands were able to rush through that gate and into mexico. now, as for the original migrant caravan, apparently of them, in the last couple of days, 1700 of them, largely honduran have requested asylum. ainsley: in mexico. steve: and now being held in shelters in mexico. that is good for them. that he was what mexico and that's what the united states said. if you are interested in come to the united states or seeking asylum, pardon me, have you got to stop in mexico, do it one at a time. ask for passage there. and that's what they're doing.
3:03 am
>> the president was saying that there are middle easterners in this group. the vice president doubled down and said it's inconceivable that criminals are not part of the 7,000 in that original caravan. and now the dhs secretary, he is confirming this. this is what he tweeted out dhs can confirm individuals in the caravan gang members who have significant criminal histories. citizens of countries outside of central america including countries in the middle east. africa, south asia and elsewhere currently traveling through mexico toward the united states. brian: stats lead to another thing. we heard about this a week ago. if you wanting to know who is funding this, who is behind this, there is a lawmaker outs of office leading it he reportedly is being funded by venezuela. they are looking to create corruption and chaos here in america leading up to the election. if you are angry at donald trump, stats show you are doing the exact wrong thing madeira, head of venezuela.
3:04 am
people force to have had eat cats and zoo animals because they are so poor and corrupt. ainsley: because they are doing donald trump a favor, the republicans a favor? brian: yes. this is not a political issue but it has become one because the average american says as much as we feel for these people, we cannot be a social welfare program for every country in the world. it's not sustainable. logical. it used to be a group think among politicians. democrats and republicans.
3:05 am
apargetly one woman who was interviewed on television said that mr. fuentas had mentioned assistance. the tv anchors supposedly said that fuentas would pay the migrants food and transportation costs, which he now denies. and he was traveling with the caravan from honduras but when they reached guatemala, the organizer was actually detained and deported. he is back in honduras. brian: they smashed through the barriers in guatemala. it was basically like paper that cha just like they ended up blowing through mexico. there was more resistance there but they got through. ainsley: people in america are wondering what are we going to do? if they start coming here to the united states, how are we going to handle this many people. senator mike lee as well as senator chuck grassley wrote a letter to kirstjen nielsen, homeland security secretary and says we have got to do something about, this and we have an idea. this is rooted in precedent.
3:06 am
because in 2002, there was an agreement with canada saying anyone who seeks refugee status, you have to stop at your first country and then you have to seek asylum there they are saying we need to make this agreement. now that we're friendly with mexico and mexico's new administration started in a month said they are going to be sympathetic to these two migrants. kristin nelson you need to call to mexico they are seeking asylum in the first country and that would be mexico. brian: have you got to avoid the setup of america is on the border in camouflage, women, children, and beat up migrants just trying to get. in that is the image that we're being accurate to portray whe with the reality is. people would take that is america is a hard-hearted country. just a country protecting its border. steve: right. so far mexico has been able to convince 1700 largely hondurans to go ahead and ask for this. so that plays into the idea by these u.s. senators. meanwhile, as we look at
3:07 am
what is going on in this country and as we look to the south of us, donald trump has been very clear, got to stop the caravan. do you know who else? once upon a time had a very trumpian tone regarding this was our former president, barack obama. listen to this. >> we are a genius and generousd welcoming people in the united states. those who welcome them and employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law. we simply cannot allow people to pour into the united states undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country. brian: it seems very reasonable and logical. guess what hasn't changed, the issues. guess what has changed? leadership on the democratic
3:08 am
party. senator chuck schumer on the record talking about the need to enforce our border. you have harry reid during his hay day when he had darker hair talk about the lunancy of chain migration. and now all of a sudden the issues we all thought we agreed on are now separating parties. ainsley: the president took that video, barack obama video and he put it on twitter. steve: he did. ainsley: he said i agree with president obama 100 percent. president obama was right. we are a generous country. we want to welcome everyone. if dhs is saying we have proof that there are criminals in this group and just as the vice president said, it would be hard to believe, unconceivable to believe that out of 7,000 people you don't have some criminals in that group. you can't just let everybody in. as president obama said, it's disrespectful to the people who are doing it the right way. we are a country of laws and we have to follow the law. brian: as the caravan approaches and second one forms. >forms.
3:09 am
ainsley: there was a 30% increase last year from the year before. steve: griff jenkins has been posted this week in mcallen, texas. is he there once again this morning. griff, i believe you had a very busy day yesterday, didn't you? >> we did. good morning, guys. you know, in this sector, rbg sector they are apprehending 4300 illegal crossings a week. it's like having a caravan a week. we went up with the air marine operations division of cpp to get real perspective on how difficult this task is. watch. >> give you a brief overview of some of the challenges that the men and women of the border patrol and our state and local law enforcement partners face every day and try to secure this border. this border is unique. what most people don't realize are the challenges that geography portrays in itself. the river bends in many locations, mexico here. and this little strip is u.s. so got a couple in custody
3:10 am
and sees a few more. can't get to them because he already has his hands full. other agent running towards us. griff: those guys got caught and now we're looking for the other ones. >> there is a reason, griff, those people aren't running. they want to be caught. griff: know there is no place to put them so they will be caught and released. >> there is a lot going on here on the southwest border specifically that doesn't get captured there is a lot of good work being done by these men and women. we are not in charge of writing the laws. we are in charge of enforcing the laws. we do the best with the la technology and resources we have to try to secure the border to the best of our ability. griff: now, to be clear that caravan is 1100 miles where they are now south of me. this is the closest point to them on the u.s.-mexico border. officials pay very close attention to their movement, their arrival would complicate the challenges you just saw. steve: it could be weeks or even a month or two before
3:11 am
they make it griff jenkins live from mcallen. ainsley: seven churches temporarily housing migrant families. the pastor there said the gates have opened suddenly. i think we got 800 people suddenly. united church of christ in dtucson. brian: how people could not be in favor of reinforcing our borders is unbelievable. good morning, jillian. jillian: good morning, brian, steve and ainsley. president trump will be rallying for republican governor scott walker and senate candidate leah. walker is in a tight race for re-election while buckner is trying to unseat tammy baldwin. plump hold rallies in iowa and illinois later this week. florida's democratic candidate accused of accepting broadway tickets from fbi agents. records obtained by the tampa bay times a former lobbyist sent a text message mike miller and the crew have tickets for us for

♪ steve: fox news alert. president trump is calling for congress to take action as the migrant caravan moves closer to our border. they are still 1,000 miles away.
3:18 am
next guest says the migrants are being used by the political left as a political weapon. here to explain is the editor of spike online brendon o'neil. good morning to you. >> hi. steve: you say we are witnessing the weapons of migration. how so? >> we are. we are seeing it around the world and seeing it in this case with the caravan. what the left and some democrats are doing is turning the migration issue into a weapon, into a tool with which to harm the trump administration. and i think that is a profoundly cynical thing to do. i think it's potentially quite dangerous thing to do. i think it could have destabilizing condestabilizing . of course, everyone has the right to claim asylum and the u.s. like all civilized countries will consider people's claim for asylum. what we have here is a political protest against the idea of american borders masquerading as a claim for asylum and that's a problem.
3:19 am
steve: back drop is two weeks before the congressional midterms and state midterms across the country. now you have got a lot of republicans saying we have got to do something about it our laws are broken. we have to change that democrats haven't helped us. democrats in congress who do not want to touch this with a 10-foot pole. they want to talk about healthcare which they think is a winner for them. >> that's right. i think what they don't realize is actually the question of borders is one of the great political issues of our time. and one of the great divides of our time, i think, is between people who think borders are important because that's how you have a nation state. and you can only have democracy whether you have a nation state. that's one side. the pro-borders side. on the other side you have people who think borders should be erased or borders don't matter or everyone should be able to come into a country is really striking that one of the key organize errors of the caravan is a group called people without borders. which i think speaks to that left leaning mind set that borders are insignificant. the democrats are missing a trick on what is a key political issue of our time.
3:20 am
steve: at the same time, going back to that barack obama sound bite we played a couple minutes ago where he said we are a compassionate nation. you see those people they don't have anything in the world except for what's on their backs. we are compassionate about that. at the same time you have to have some rules. >> you have to have rules. i have always been generally in favor of immigration. my parents are immigrants. moved from ireland to britain. i know how beneficial immigration can be. it has to be done in a democratic way and according to rules and laws. if it isn't, then you might as well erase borders entirely. if you erase borders, you erase democracy. that's the issue these people aren't willing to face up to. steve: a pleasure to editor of spike online. >> thank you. steve: what do you think about that? foxnews.com. when will vladimir putin and the president meet face to face again? we just fowngsd out. 13 days until the midterms. one of those candidates is going to join us in the march to the midterms.

3:26 am
brian: look how close this is right now mike cheryl has a slight advantage over you, a democrat. this was the republican -- mikey i should say. this was a republican seat. 488, you have 44. do your internals request that. >> it's a coin flip. so we turn out the vote. that's what we're doing focused on making sure republicans know this is a critical battle ground seat and we tell them what's at stake. do we want to continue to go forward and go back to the obama years where we get less than 2% growth and go forward with 4% growth go. forward with job creation. go forward with confidence and on the michelle or going to give into this dower perfordo youpessimism. brian: the second poll has you down 11% with kellyanne conway coming to stump for you and the president tweeting for you is there a party that says even though i'm in camp with the president being that in new jersey it's a tough slog, maybe i should back away.
3:27 am
>> no, no. listen. i'm going to agree with the president when he is right. i will disagree with him when i disagree with him. i will always put new jersey first. that's always what i have done and that's what we are doing in this campaign. in this campaign we are talking about cutting taxes and creating jobs. that's what the president has been able to do. brian: we reached out to sherrill, she has not responded. trump supporters and i'm say new jersey, too. we can no longer write off state tax with new tax plan. i feel like the president let me down there. what do you say to people. >> the salt dededuction cap i wanting to eliminate it or raise it created an economic boon in the country and been good for new jersey. complaining about the salt dededuction cap in that bill is like winning the world series four games to one and complaining about the one game you laos. you are still world champs. it's still a good bill. i want to work on fixing it the president is going to help me work on fixing it overall it's a good bill and been a real benefit to people in our district.

3:33 am
fox nation. go to fox nation to figure out more about it you are joining us today from los angeles. los angeles has certainly had an immigration problem in the past. what do you make of these democrats who back in the day were for essentially the same thing that donald trump is saying? >> well, democrats don't just hope, they will ensure that the migrant caravans of today are the voters of tomorrow. they are absolutely using these people as political weapons and footballs in order to get votes the detriment of not only americans but legal immigrants. it's about time we call them on it we repeat those sound bites that they said long ago and ask them why their position has changed? why do they now place illegal immigrants over legal immigrants and americans? it's about time they answer for that. ainsley: tomi, what needs to happen now when it comes to immigration reform? >> well, you know how i feel about a wall and physical barriers and it seems as though hillary clinton also feels the same way about a physical barrier to stop
3:34 am
people. listen, what we're seeing now with this migrant caravan is not a caravan, it's an invasion. we have every right to be able to protect our borders. and, yes, physical barriers do work. i have spent time with the border patrol. i have seen what they go through. although they have great technology, whether you have a physical barrier you are able to reallocate resources in other places where a physical barrier isn't possible. you are able to stop a lot of that illegal immigration. that first and foremost, you need to gain the trust of the american people and building a wall is a first step to do it. then we can deal with the people that are already here. that wall has to be first. brian: now, when democrats and republicans agreed on getting rid of chain migration, agreed to build the barrier and agreed that they should not is have full flat access to our country unimpeded he would still couldn't get immigration done. we are moving away from each other. mike pompeo, the secretary of state, made it clear this
3:35 am
caravan coming here unacceptable. >> to those who say this is a hard-hearted stance, let's not forget that the united states is a historically generous nation when it comes to immigration over 33 million people total are currently hire who are immigrated to this country legally. to those who want to come here, come here legally. legal immigration is the surest way to obtain the better life you are looking for here in the united states of america. from a security standpoint, there is no proper accounting of who these individuals in the caravan are. and this poses an unacceptable security risk to the united states. brian: tomi, here we are. this is the caravan. i don't hear a word from democrats. why? >> well, democrats have been able to effectively control this narrative that border enforcement, border security, law enforcement, immigration law is somehow bigoted and intolerant and
3:36 am
unfortunately, as i have seen many times when i have gone to west hollywood, which we know is really the bagsiathe bastion of liberalism. they don't want to seem intolerant so they won't say a word about it. that's the problem. the only person that can change that narrative is donald trump. i believe going into the midterms, i don't think this migrant caravan is going to hurt republicans or donald trump. i think it's going to make americans realize what's at stake and come out and vote for border security and enforcement. steve: you are saying that the president when he said earlier that the midterm is all about the caravan and kavanaugh. you are saying that's accurate? >> oh, absolutely. because, although the democrats believe that somehow this is going to help them with their emotional pleas, there are so many americans out there that are seeing this, that they feel like this is an invasion and slap in the face to the united states and our rule of law. they are are going to come out and vote against it
3:37 am
because, even in california, people are sick and tired of this. brian: tomi lahren one of your features i know is at the border on fox nation, right? >> absolutely. we spend a lot of time with those folks. you will see it on fox nation more in-depth. i'm so excited to show you guy what is we have in store. ainsley: we look forward to it thanks so much, tomi. >> thanks, guys. ainsley: we hand it over to jillian. jillian: neighbors watch in horror as historic church erupts in change. flames. 150-year-old landmark. they saw lightning moments before it caught fire. more than 100 firefighters rushing to put it out. thankfully no one was hurt. more incredible video. this time out of california. fire and smoke pouring out of this vintage world war ii era plane after it crashed on the highway. pulling it to safety before it burst into flames. pilot was doing a test run when the engine failed.

3:46 am
it was just too expensive to do the prescription pills and heroin just took me to an all-time low. ainsley: how long were you addicted? how many years? >> i wanting to say about seven, seven, eight years. ainsley: you got clean four years ago. >> yeah. >> ainsley: congratulations. now you are helping other people treatment center in florida what's it called? >> truth recovery center. brian: what does it do do you think attacking this problem? >> i think the bill is the step in the right direction. what it does is -- it gives people with medicaid the opportunity to get treatment because if i get 10 calls in a day, nine to ten of them are medicaid. my facility takes private insurance so i can't really help those people unless i do it on a scholarship basis. so this gives help to them at the end of the day, we are dealing with the largest public health epidemic that we have-i crisis that we have experienced. brian: you can't beat it on your only. i don't know nibble that really does. >> you can't beat it on your

3:48 am
long-term? this is going to cost us a lot of money. it's the largest public health epidemic in years. ainsley: people of all generations, all socialio economic background. >> yeah, everybody. it doesn't matter how are or where you are from. how you grew up. it happens to everyone and every family deals with it. brian: a program to throw out your medicine when you are done with your knee injury. you don't need it. get rid of it. don't leave it? >> of course. brian: number two is doctors being more responsible as to how they prescribe it? >> have to be more aware. they used to give this stuff out like it was candy and not be educated and not educate the patient as well, which is important. brian: kellyanne conway has done a tremendous job leading. this. ainsley: we'll talk to her coming up. jay jonas is the founder of the truth recovery center. if you want to get ahold of him where is it in florida. >> it's in palm beach county. ainsley: what could the democrats' platform. >> medicare for all. >> making public colleges

cory booker's idea. a thousand dollars savings account for foreign board kids and up to 50,000. >> you could get 50,000 by the time you are 18. what's that for? things like buying a house or paying for education or retirement. that sounds really nice. here's the problem. we already spend billions and billions of dollars to subsidize every single one of those things. the question i ask is if you want to help people buy a house or g.e.d. an education, why are we throwing all this money away with existing programs that aren't getting the job done and now you are talking about just layering more on. ainsley: why do they do this just for politics so that they can win but they can't actually follow through with it? >> if you are curie booker you want to take credit for helping people in ways they want to be helped. ainsley: that's a lie though. doesn't he know there is no money to pay for it? >> well, yeah. we can borrow it we can keep borrowing money. we have a huge deficit i don't think he cares how we

cost $30 trillion over 10 years when you talk about his medicare for all. if we're going to pay for that you are either going to cut the federal budget by 50% or see your taxes go up by 50%. either way, you're going to pay. brian: they want 56% for all the you were bracket and state taxes and local taxes. so you are basically bringing home $3 of every 10 you make. >> people love the idea of free healthcare until you tell them how it's going to work. and then they say i'm not so interested in the federal government getting more involved. i'm not so interested in seeing my taxes go up. make no mistake. every one of these programs taxes up. steve: like ordering a fantastic meal and at the end oh, there is the bill. >> all good until somebody has to pay for it guess who is going to pay for it. ainsley: call that lottery winner in south carolina. >> they can invest. ainsley: thanks. steve: this democrat is running for governor in florida. he has denied that he got tickets to see tickets on

4:04 am
that are forecasted it will definitely strain the resources we have. we will do the best with the manpower we have and stem and control this. >> now, in this sector, chief manuel padilla tells me. heaviest trafficked in the nation. 51% is family units and unaccompanied children in 2018. but he says in just this first month of 2019, it's at 64% for family units and unaccompanied minors. a growing trend that he thinks is troubling, guys? steve: absolutely. griff, thank you very much. meanwhile, also troubling as we keep an eye on that large caravan that is heading our way. they did take yesterday off simply because the day before one of the migrants riding on a truck fell and was killed. they took the day off and parked in one particular town where the lals brought
4:05 am
out food and water and provided toils. everybody who wanted to make a phone call home. ainsley: putting blankets on the ground. president got a lot of heat for saying some of these people in the crowds were criminals. some were from the middle east. the vice president doubled down on that and said it was inconceivable there were not illegals in caravan. they have deported five, six times from the u.s. then dhs tyler hole ton, the homeland security press secretary. he actually says the president is right, guys. gang members or people with significant criminal history are a part of this group. this is what he tweeted out. he said we can confirm that there are individuals within the caravan who are gang members or have significant criminal history. brian: look at the stats. steve: countries outside of central america including countries in the middle
4:06 am
east, africa, south asia and elsewhere are currently traveling through mexico towards the united states. so, when the president was in the oval office and he invited the reporters in and he said i have got great information, apparently that's what he was talking about. brian: i would say this, too. if you just talk to people on the most. if you look at the average. they say 20% of the people who try to pass through our borders have criminal records. let alone 7,000 people maybe more now that have gathered together to march to our border. stats say that's the case. ainsley: you have a heart for them. you see the moms with their babies, of course, you feel for them and realized how blessed we are to live in this amazing country and have the lives that we have. there are a lot of people that are waiting in line to get into this country and are doing it the right way and have done it the right way. we have to vet them and make sure that criminals aren't coming into the country, drugs aren't coming. in. brian: keep in mind they say 85% are young men under 30 who are marching here.

that story we read in the "the washington post." not going to apply for asylum. simply wanted to come in the united states and get jobs. we had brendan o'neil with us. he is with spike online, thank you very much sabrina in my ear. he had an interesting point of view. he said that this particular caravan and migration toward our southern border is being used as a political tool that we have never seen before. >> i think what the left is doing, what some democrats are doing are turning the migration issue into a weapon, into a tool with which to harm the trump administration. that's a profundly cynical thing to do. quite dangerous thing to do. destabilizing cons sequences. what we have a political protest against the idea of american borders masquerading as asylum and that's a problem.
4:08 am
brian: how to stop the caravan i thought would be the issue. did i not think we would have an issue should the caravan be allowed access through our borders simply because they are there? in fact, if you look back just a few years ago it wasn't long ago key democrats in total agreement with the president in 2018. if you look back when they were emerging as politicians. using what i think was logic go look back at what barack obama said in 2005. ainsley: he said you you can't let everybody in the country, that was 2005. that's how democrats felt then. they changed their minds now. the president tweeted out yesterday saying i agree with president obama 100 percent and then he put this video up we are a generous and welcoming people here in the united states. those who enter the country illegally and deploy them disrespect the rule of law and they are show being disregard for those who are
4:09 am
following the law. we simply cannot allow people to pour into the united states undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country. brian: the question is has president obama, now that he is former president obama changed his mind? and if so, why would you? that is a blatant statement, a fact which seems logical. almost no reason to go through it on c-span he did. he is on the record. why would any democrat go against their leader? steve: politics. we have not heard many prominent democrats weigh in on the caravan because this is -- you know, the republicans feel it's a winner for them. they feel it's healthcare so they would like to change the subject. as we said at the top of this hour, it t. is just 13 days away from the midterms. brand new associated press headline says this. senate slipping away as

4:19 am
look like business as usual. steve: joe donnelly been in the senate for a while, he voted against judge kavanaugh's confirmation to the supreme court we haven't really heard him talk about the caravan. what is your opinion regarding that? because a lot of top democrats are reluctant to even go there because they prefer to talk about healthcare. >> well, and i think healthcare is the most important issue that i'm seeing out there. but border security is as well. here in the hoosier state, border security and cost of healthcare and actually folks worried about social security and medicare being found when they need it. the caravan looks frightening. when you see what looks like annual armada headed your way in a brazen way that looks like it's going to try to breach the border. it's somatic we have not put any discipline on the border. a lot of problems are associated with it. thank goodness president trump is taking it seriously. and i like the fact that he
4:20 am
is going to draw the line here. that you can't march forward and intend to blast through the border. i think it's going to be an interesting to see how it all pans out. i think it's going to be the defining issue in terms of what we do with border security. ainsley: you are surging. only two more weeks to go. i know your opponent voted against kavanaugh, right? >> he did. from that point can you measurable it in our internals and some other polls, we have built, i think four to five point lead. that was the catalyst. i think it also exposed kind of an ugly underbelly to how the other side litigates any issue. it's mostly on kind of demonizing and, you know, just trying to tear down. i think the public is really starving for some real solutions not to where you are trying to tear folks down. steve: have a solution two weeks from yesterday. mr. brawn, thank you for joining us live from indianapolis. >> thank you. ainsley: thank you. we did reach out to joe

4:26 am
national border council patrol counsel in arizona. art, this is not a surprise to you. use this opportunity to alert america what our border patrol is going through now in 2018. why it's more challenging than even 2017. >> the truth of the matter is, that the numbers went down just on president trump's rhetoric alone. what hasn't changed is we haven't come up with any new policies. and we have the same leaders running our agency that ran it under the obama administration. and they just don't seem to have the same sense of urgency as the president does. that's what's upsetting. brian: look at the numbers. ainsley: why are we seeing more numbers. 90,000 increase from last year because we are not separating families. >> not enforcing the immigration laws that we can enforce. catch and release is still going on. if you have criminals coming into our country and you are not enforcing laws against them, then there is no reason for them to stop being criminals and breaking
4:27 am
our laws. that's what it comes down to. you have to have consequences. with no consequences, the criminal will continue to be a criminal. ainsley: art, isn't that the law though? we have to catch and release? >> you know, there is other waves that they could go about it, however. they can put immigration judges. they can putt the asylum officers there at the border so they can really inspect these people's cases and as they see that, you know, a lot of them are not, you know, true asylum cases we return them there. that can be done. but, you know, until something is done similar to that or we get a little bit more serious about it, it's not going to stop. and that's what's frustrating. and like we said before. with rhetoric alone, president trump lowered of the numbers and the agency milled the mark and it's because the same leaders that were there before are still running the agency now. brian: border apprehension of unaccompanied minors gone up 50,000 already 41 went up in 2017. here is why i don't blame
4:28 am
border patrol and/or anything about enforcing or the current people; in 2009 we reapproached what we were doing with illegal immigrants crossing the borders. we identified the mexican crossing as the problem. so it stopped. but when senator feinstein puts together this law that favors central and south americans, they flood in. and then you have the flores amendment that says you can't hold somebody for more than two months. that is essentially law that says catch and release. what do you want them to do? >> honestly, think about it. if people are allowed to break into your home, and the local pd is not going to arrest them and the local pd is not going to detain them and pretty much give them a slap on the hand and say hey, don't do it again and they will continue to breaking into your house and continue breaking into your house. if you don't enforce the laws, if you don't take border security serious, if some of our leaders within our own agency are too busy

office talking about the caravan. kellyanne conway, counselor to the president of the united states, she joins us from the north lawn. kellyanne, so much has been made of this caravan of about 7,000. now it sounds like there is a second one that is parked in guatemala. and i think there is 2500 there. what is going on? >> well the caravan is a symbol of broken promises and failed policies by the democrats. every single democratic senator has signed onto the feinstein idea for open borders. and as have you president obama fecklessly and recklessly trying to take credit for the trump economy. he ought to take credit or blame for what we are seeing at our southern border. they did absolutely nothing to curb the influx of illegal immigrants coming over this border. look, i'm, you know, equal parts compassion and titanium. i will tell you that i fear that many of the honduran nationals were promised things that won't be delivered, given, i think, promises that can't be

fulfilled boy the coyotes charging them so much money or other folks not telling them what a treacherous journey this could be. you see the news statistics show that over half a million people try to cross the border illegally last year. and we have this increase in families trying to cross over. but we don't always know that they are family units. you can have one male grabbing someone else's kid and pretend go ahead they are a family unit. i'm very concerned even one of those happens. you know well it's happening. the child smuggling and drug smuggling. we have a right to know who is coming into our country. democrats don't act. they went for all the fops down at the southern border a couple months ago. they are completely radio silent on this. secretary pompeo is absolutely right. we are the world's most generous nation. 33 million people have immigrated here legally. many we all know and people should try to do that
4:36 am
legally. brian: senator schumer talked in the past about the need to stop illegal aliens from coming in here. senator harry reid talked about the idiocy of chain migration how ridiculous it is. barack obama in 2005 talked about you can't just walk into our country unincumbered because it's not fair to people here. what happened? did people not know vcrs were rolling that we knew where they stood? what changed? >> it's delicious. do you know what changed? donald trump got elected and got elected overwhelmingly in some states because of issues like this. he is saying that we're a sovereign nation. we need physical borders. and we need to know who is here. you can imgrate legally. and, also, this president has been very forth right for over three years now talking about not just the people coming in illegally but the drugs that are pouring into our country. 90% of heroin coming into this country comes through
4:37 am
our southern border. we have increases in cocaine coming. in now, fentanyl. folk he is, mark it down. learn the word fentanyl responds cybil for 30,000 american deaths just last year. it's coming in increasingly through our southern border and being manufactured? china. talking president poison coming into our communities through the southern border and this needs to stop. this is a failure of the democrats not to act. the president, my boss last january in the cabinet room for one hour on live tv said he would do a deal on the dreamers. he wanted to end chain migration, end the vils is a lottery system. get that wall built and he would do a deal on the dreamers. the democrats never thought he would make good on that. he called their bluff yet again. they walked away from the table never to be geraldo of again. ainsley: kellyanne, if you look at the caravan how long it will take them they will be up to our border in a few weeks. know senator chuck grassley and mike lee we have a copy the letter here to kirstjen

nielsen with homeland security. they have a solution. they said like we have done in the past in 2002 with canada, maybe this would work with mexico. require the migrants to stop in mexico and seek asylum there and mexico would have to agree to do that? will it work. >> mexico has been very cooperative here and i want to make that clear. they have offered to i have think grant temporary visas or asylum there as i understanding it, many in the caravan are pushing forward and refusing that the majority of them it's estimate you had are economic migrants. not those that have a of asylum. that's very instructive too to my other point. we have to try what's been tried in the past. at least you have republican senators like the two you just mentioned trying to solve the problem. you have got democrats out there running for 2020. they have done absolutely nothing in 2018 to secure our borders. to keep us drug-free and safe. they all voted against tax cuts that are stem a little oustimulatingour economy.

blue collar wages are up. wages for everybody are up. unemployment is down. optimism is surging. the stock market, the fundamentals are still strong under the trump economy. did you see kamala harris yesterday? she was at some college in iowa for an event and about 12 people were in the picture? 12? it's like can i invite you over for dinner tonight and have more people. do you know why? because they are trying to sell things that nobody is buying. why isn't she at the border saying, folks, let's come in legally. i agree with president obama from 2005. i think every candidate should be asked do you agree or disagree with president obama from 2005. he is out there trying to take credit for a trump economy. you know what? to quote obama from 2004. he didn't build. this he didn't build that economy. president trump did and everybody knows it. steve: democrat would rather talk about healthcare because they think that's a winner for them and not immigration. >> they are wrong there, too. 20 million americans, it's

we're getting more of the fentanyl out of the country. let me say one last feature in this. our u.s. postal service now must provide to customs and border protection for every package coming into this country, including from china and mexico, advanced electronic data. that's going to cut down on these illegal stuff like fentanyl coming in here. brian brian you are doing great work too. the president asked to you lead and did you. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. steve: what's coming up, ainsley? ainsley: 2016 was so stressful for millennials some of them claim they have ptsd. joey jones actually surveillance from ptsd. lost both of his legs serving our country. is he here with a reality check for millennials coming up. steve: economy is booming for president trump. president trump says that may be enough to crash the democrats' blue wave. stuart varney says the numbers don't lie. he has the numbers next. ainsley: hey, stuart. how are you ♪ more than a feeling ♪

4:55 am
that it is a dramatic and blatant misnomer across the board. when you peel back the layers of the onion, these men and women had trauma as a child. they had a divorce. they had things that happened in their social lives with the people they care about before they ever went to war. war kind of rips that scab off and reveals these things. we have a lot of people diagnosed with ptsd that never went to war. what i'm getting at is this misdiagnosis. let me take that banner and put it on to my own life. creeping into our civilian lives as well. you now have people claiming to have post-traumatic stress disorder because they feel discomfort and uncertainty. what these people felt might be self-imposed stress disorder but it's the give length to a bad hair day. it's not the equivalent of putting your buddy into a bag. not equivalent of trying to save someone's life and watching it slip away in the middle of combat. we don't understand what the mind goes through in combat yet. we think we do. the pendulum has just swung in a different direction so now we blanket this disorder
4:56 am
when, in fact, it's much more deeper than that to have someone dishonor and really take a shot at those men and women who are suffering because they don't enjoy trump's rhetoric is really kind of disgusting. ainsley: what is your message to these students that are claiming to have ptsd that didn't go to war, that haven't seen their friends in body bags? >> absolutely, listen. you can take your study, your degrees, your entitled opinion and claim whatever you would like. what this country needs are men and women of strong mind and strong faith. that's who serves this country and fortunately those are the people who truly have suffered from ptsd. but thankfully they are strong enough and we believe in them enough to get them through it men and women recover daily from disorders of post-traumatic stress and simply being upset over an election in my opinion doesn't rate something like that. brian: joey jones, thanks so much. appreciate it. >> absolutely, thank you. ainsley: is there a second migrant caravan on its way up to the border?

5:02 am
penetrate america's borders, have a flesh life or up to no good, whatever, they are in guatemala, honduras and el salvador. it is not so much the message up front but the message sent behind you. this is the message from people worried about the borders. steve: the president tweeted seven minutes ago this. those who want to advocate illegal immigration, look what happened to europe over last five years. a total mess. they only wish they had that decision to make over again. he goes on. we are a great sovereign nation. we have strong borders and will never accept people coming into our country illegally. so what the federal government is trying to do, we're trying to work with mexico to make sure that if those people are in mexico illegally, mexico realizes that and they process them. if you are here and you want, not refugee status, you want to
5:03 am
apply for asylum, do it in mexico. so far according to "the wall street journal" apparently 1700 in the original big caravan have done that but the other 5000 have not. ainsley: right. they're coming up to the united states. the president was saying there are some criminals mixed in the group. the vice president doubled down on that. the dhs confirmed that. he tweeted out they are gang members with significant criminal history. some are countries outside of central america, middle east, africa, south asia, elves where. a lot of moms and babies men that want to work for families to send money home but in addition to that there are criminals as part of this group. brian: i talked to sarah carter yesterday in guatemala. she didn't see any babies. walked up a baby carriage, it was somebody's luggage in a baby carriage. she is not saying there isn't any and most everybody she saw

5,000, $10,000. as they move through the areas that have a lot of crime and violence, there is safety in numbers. so there is some suggestion this is just the tip of the iceberg. brian: i will add something else to this. we have seven million open jobs, all the farmers need a lot of workers. there are guest worker program is being implemented. nobody is saying there isn't opportunity. nobody is saying that there is not opportunity there. there is system to be reformed, updated, ebb pa dieted, this will help everyone. allow refugees to come in undocumented, illegal aliens creates another underclass. there is homeless problem in san francisco and in los angeles and san diego, that goes directly some back, some believe, i'm one of them to their sanctuary status. the magnet goes out to our country. then it goes to sanctuary cities. they live on the streets in squalor. who benefits. ainsley: democrats agree with you, many used to. president obama at one point
5:06 am
saying when he was a senator that we've got, we do have a heart for these people. we still have to know who is coming in. you just can't let everybody in. the president, he went back to his recorded vhs tapes pulled one of them, put it on twitter. wrote on top of the twitter account. i agree with president obama 100% and link i had to this video from 2005. watch this. >> we are a generous and welcoming people here in the united states but those who enter the country illegally, and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law. we simply cannot allow people to pour into the night undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country. brian: that is a little hard-line for my taste. who is that? is that barack obama?
5:07 am
steve: that is barack obama back in the day. so that's why the president of the united states, i agree with him 100%, which this president has not done very often. according to "the washington post" yesterday it said they had a reporter with the caravan and they were suggesting that most of the people who are in the caravan, the big one right now, they're not going to come to the united states and go through the port and ask for asylum. they plan to try to sneak across the border and just get a job, according to "the washington post" because they have done that before. we were talking yesterday about some of the guys who have, are in this current caravan have been deported six times but they keep coming back because of the jobs. they're not looking for a asylum. they just want a job. brian: that is where business is responsible to have an e-verify system, so the businesses would be just a culpable if they're caught working for them. e-verify would show they are undocumented, they're illegal aliens, and that business gets

people aren't running. they want to be caught. reporter: no there is no place to put them and they will be caught and released. >> there is a lot on the southwest border specifically that doesn't get captured. there is lot of good work being done by these men and women. we're not charge of writing the laws. we're in charge of enforcing laws. we do our best with the technology and tools and resources to try to secure the border to the bets of our ability. reporter: steve earler, you mentioned whether there might be more caravans? the sector chief of the border patrol, hector padilla. should they succeed getting up here on it border, it will definitely lead to more zare vans. guys? steve: thank you, griff. griff used the word caravan. ainsley and brian about an houring a talked to art del cueto. he had this operation about that term. >> if you don't enforce the
5:11 am
laws, if you don't take the border laws serious. if some of our leaders are too busy at banquets, taking pictures instead of coming up with a plan this will continue. we had the same issue with a caravan coming through in april. you move forward where we're at today. it is is not a caravan coming through. it is an invasion. no plan has been set. nothing has changed. brian: this guy, whatever is going to happen has to be bipartisan. we never get out of the blocks with any of this. the frustration on the border, their hands are tied. ainsley: art said only two percent of catch-and-release show up for the court appearance. brian: most of people that show up, other than mexicans, otms. mexico problem has been solved. central, south america are getting a different message that is the issue. with the 20-day amendment, they have to be let go. steve: it's a broken system. let's hope they do something about it.

5:19 am
don't want to support the border wall. how do you do it? >> it is simple. build the wall, enforce the law. not only is funding to build the wall, think about the caravan, think about the protection you have, more importantly what does it do in there? it enhances our ability to remove the ms-13 gang members. it ends sanctuary cities. it has "kate's law." but think for a moment, we're worried about the caravan coming but i'm more worried what happens on november 6. if we are not successful on november 6, think what it would mean with a nancy pelosi as speaker? how large would the caravan start on the 7th? >> she said mow the lawn, if you want border security, mow the lawn. >> exactly. think about how many people are coming. more importantly they want to end i.c.e. in her own home city, san francisco's allows illegals to vote in school boards. i put a bill up. it is also inside of this bill, to condemn that action.

a highly contagious virus killed six children in new jersey. the virus sickening 12 other children at a rehab center that provides long-term care for medically-fragile children. symptoms include the common cold, sore throat and fever. the health department blames this outbreak on hand washing deficiencies at the facility. ainsley. ainsley: thank you, steve. with just 13 days to go before the midterms, turnout is expected to be unprecedented. many democrats i anticipate they will do especially well among suburban women. our next guest says don't assume all women will vote democrat. explaining in a new op-ed it will be trump and the gop at that will prevail. author of the alpha female's guide to men and marriage. suzanne, thank you for being with us. good to see you again. >> good to see you too. ainsley: so many women say they feel like the president is targeting women and some of the name-calling, some of the rhetoric, but you say not so
5:26 am
fast. why? >> so there are basically two takeaways from the article. the first that trump does not discriminate in any way when he responds to attacks made against him. whether you're a male or a female, black or white, old or young, as we have now seen from several years of watching him, his mo is to defend himself against this attack that comes his way. i don't even think he sees where the attack is coming from except the attack. that is who he is. the idea that he specifically targets women just doesn't hold up. that is one of the points i was making in that article. the second one, which is a little bit more important is, that you know, we all heard this adage that our best traits are often sometimes our worst traits. and i think that what we're dealing with trump, with you and me. we all have aspects of our personality that in one domain might serve us very well, in
5:27 am
another not so much. with him this is a person who has very strong personality. he is very direct. he is politically incorrect. he doesn't care with people think. this is very unusual in a president. you know, we're used to people being very pitt call and pandering special interest groups, especially feminists. since he doesn't do that. he is a target. ainsley: we have this "fox news poll." this is really interesting. if you talk to his campaign they would probably say he needs to improve with suburban women. when we took the poll, fox news asked what would be your preference, we were asking suburban women. 56% of suburban women said they would vote democratic. 37% said they would vote republican. what does president trump need to do be more attractive to the suburban woman? >> i'm not sure so much he can do, what you as a voter, what you as a voter can choose to focus on come november. we're dealing here with a personality versus policies f you're somebody that is, why i
5:28 am
quoted heather mcdonald in the piece who called trump a painful dilemma because most people are in agreement that they like, at least people in favor of him like the policies. what he is doing is clearly working but they don't like the personality so much. they're grappling with that. so come november what we're dealing with is, what is it that you're going to focus more on? the fact he has the personality that you don't care for, or are you going to focus what he is doing which is clearly working? just to go back to the whole concept of these two different traits, it is really important understand, really important to understand that we all have this in us to be in, to have this personality that is helpful in one area and not in others. because you can't get everything you want wrapped up in one person. we like that in a president but we're not going to be. that is what my last book is about because it is ironic and all about personalities and how strong women can be very effective in certain areas an domains but in personal lives
5:29 am
and relationships it can be problematic. that is really similar what we're seeing with trump, these two sides, these two areas. ainsley: all right. suzanne, it is a great article. thank you so much. we appreciate you being on. >> thanks for having me. ainsley: you're welcome. former attorney general eric holder firing up his supporters just weeks ago when he said this. >> when they go low we go high. no. no. when they go low we kick 'em. that is what this new democratic party is about. ainsley: wait until you hear how he is now explaining those comments. plus this democrat is running for governor down in florida but he is facing big questions how he got tickets for the show "hamilton" on broadway. his opponent, former congressman ron desantis joins us live next. ! ! new sesame-ginger shrimp is here, too. but hurry in, endless shrimp ends november eighteenth. olay total effects.

5:36 am
manifesto. he wants to abolish i.c.e. he won't cooperate with the federal government. so florida would have more crime under andrew gillem. that would be disasterous for our state that undercuts everything we're trying to do economically with the environment, you name it. steve: a lot of immigrants making florida their home. what do you make of this caravan in mexico that is headed our way? we have not heard from mr. gillum regarding this, i don't believe. >> obviously a sovereign country can't just have people plowing across its border. i think the president is right to take it seriously. i don't think we can countenance that. andrew has open border policies. he basically said that is what he wants, he wants florida to be a sanctuary state and have sanctuary cities. when you do that, obviously folks come in, we don't no hoe they are, but it's a wet kiss from the drug cartels they move the product in from china, fentanyl driving opioid crisis.
5:37 am
that is not good for anywhere in the country. obviously that stuff finds its way to florida. brian: andrew gillum was from tallahassee. his intellect is strong after the debate performance. one thing is clear he is under fbi investigation. we have some details now. turns out an fbi under cover agent tried to offer him "hamilton" tickets. he took it. he did have a explanation that his brother gave it to him but that doesn't seem to be playing out. >> no. in fact he, i asked him directly, we had a debate sunday and he said he pays for everything. has never taken anything. well then the documents that came out showed just the opposite. that yes, this undercover fbi agent posing as a contractor trying to do business with him as mayor with the city of tallahassee, he is the one that gave andrew the "hamilton" tickets. andrew lied to the folks of florida. but also the fact he is getting, he claims he is not under investigation. why the heck would law
5:38 am
enforcement send an undercover agent to line his pockets if he wasn't under investigation? of course he is. he has violated florida law by accepting those gifts, not just that, but this luxury vacation to costa rica. the documents also show he didn't pay for that. lo and behold the lobbiest that took him on that trip to coast can reek can, he turned around and gave the lobbiest $2 million in city money to build a restaurant. that is local corruption looks like. brian: congressman, here is the moment from sunday's debate. >> the question is, did you pay for the "hamilton" ticket or did the uncover fbi pay for the "hamilton" ticket? did you pay to stay in the villa in costa rica? where are the receipts? you have not proven you paid for anything. that is the problem. >> here is direct answer. i don't take free trips in anybody. i'm a hard-working person. i know that may not fit your description of what you think people like me do but i worked hard for everything that i have gotten and in my life. i don't need anybody handing me
5:39 am
anything for free. steve: congressman? >> well, obviously the documents that were released come down on that statement like a ton of bricks. the fact of the matter is, he was getting things for free and not just that. look, it is not just that he got something for free. i don't like getting things for free as a person but when you talk about this was connected to his role as mayor. these are people looking to influence him, who had business before him. so he is putting money in his pocket effectively, then turning around doing the bidding of the same people who are giving him this stuff. that is wrong. ainsley: if he is, if he is telling the truth when he says his brother gave him the "hamilton" tickets. steve: he thought it was the brother. ainsley: is that allowed? you're allowed to get free things from the family, just not from someone else? >> exactly. if the uncover gave the tickets to his brother to give to andrew, that would be no difference. we know what happened. that is why he so evasive.
5:40 am
he lashed out in the debate because he knew he was not on the right side of the facts here. what we have to keep holding him to the fire. the media has not done very much on this finally this came out because of a subpoena request in the ethics investigation into andrew. steve: tampa bay newspaper is doing that a lot of local outlets in florida today. not exactly when you want it to drop two weeks out before the election. mr. desantis the president tweeted support for you. he added more stops before the midterms. is heading back to the sunshine state? >> i think so. you know obviously the white house will announce and trump's campaign will announce when they want to. but i think you will see him here the you saw that texas crowd. i think you will see similar enthusiasm for here in the state of florida. brian: congressman some say you're good at defining what gillum will do, raise tax, that nature, you're not saying good enough job what you would do.
5:41 am
what is the difference between you and governor scott? >> we're coming in at a different time. rick came in with economy in the tank. i'm coming in with the economy going. so what i want to do is capitalize off that, recruit record investment into florida so we expand our economic base, finance technology, manufacturing, that is more high-paying jobs. also we had persistent problems with our water resources. we have to clean the water, make sure we restore the everglades and stop toxic algae. i'm in a unique position to do that. i stood up against some of the biggest interests in florida to do the right thing. i'm only one of the two of us will be able to get that done. that is an issue on the forefront of a lot of floridians minds. steve: a lot of people are worried about the red tide and green algae. thank you very much for joining us live. >> thank you. steve: we did invite andrew gillum on the program to answer the charges and talk to us. declined. brian: i will talk to ron a little more on the radio shortly

senator ted cruz was accosted last month at a d.c. restaurant. over the summer homeland security secretary kirstjen nielsen was shouted down having her dinner as well. our next guest has a warning for all the protesters, saying these kind of tactics could put people in screaming in danger. former secret service agent, executive director of the federal law enforcement officers association, patrick o carroll joins us live from d.c. good morning to you. >> thank you, steve, for the opportunity to talk about this increasingly dangerous situation facing secret service and other federal agents on protective details. steve: why is it increasing? >> what is happening, a couple things they're getting opportunity to get some press attention. so obviously protesters are using that. but i think the thing that worries us mostly is that when these political figures show up in restaurants or other public occasions phone calls are made, crowds gather, and often times
5:47 am
there are loud and abusive. you suggest phone calls are made, so they're tracking the whereabouts of prominent republicans? >> that apparently is what is our concern on it is, that when a couple goes out, a political couple goes out to dinner and within 15 minutes there is a large crowd there, obviously there is a network there that is advising when and where people, political figures are. that is a concern. steve: what is your warning to somebody who might be considering something like this? they certainly have the freedom of speech. they can express themselves in public as they want. as long as it is safe. >> obviously a good example, steve, would be about a week ago a family member was, or members were on an airplane. everybody gets off the plane except for one person. that makes the agents on board thinking that this is unusual. we kind of called it the
5:48 am
swimming upstream. it's a clue that something could be happening. so anyway, their attention level goes up. the person jumps up reaches into their pocket and an incident occurs that could easily happen in a restaurant with any of these crowds, push and shove, whatever, escalate into a use of force situation and the agents present would have to make an arrest. steve: i think in that case where the members of the first family were on that airplane, the one person was left behind, it was a member of the media who wanted to ask them a question about khashoggi or something like that, and, i think the secret service was right there and stopped him from getting any closer, right? >> yes. what happened was is the person stood up, reached into their, allegedly stood up, reached into their pocket, at that point there the agents antennas were up, they were concerned. they stepped between the protectee, the individual, and neutralized situation, fortunately it turned out to be a good warning the reason why we're on this morning these type

of incidents are starting to increase. we want to warn people, don't do it. steve: because you're worried about violence? >> of course we're worried about violence and the safety of the people that secret service and other federal agents protect. steve: it is an important job. a tough job. patrick o'carroll, thank you for joining from us our nation's capital. >> thank you. steve: straight ahead on wednesday the purple heart foundation is teaming up with necks and tires for a special mission. they will honor one of our heroes giving away a sports car, the one behind them. find out you how you can help. first, sandra smith joins us. >> good morning, steve. wednesday morning from "america's newsroom," top of the hour, a live report from the white house on the caravan of migrants as he they had toward the u.s. border. what the president is now saying. plus midterms, 13 days away now, what early voting is telling us. reports now of 155 possible cases of a polio-like illness
