it is ineffective, they say. what is another plan the democrats have to seal the border up without a wall? do they have any plan outside of a barrier along the border? >> you can't just put up a regular barrier. you have to put up a wall. fences don't work. the thing with a wall is walls go 20 or 30 feet into the ground which disrupts tunnels. you don't just settle alien traffic or migrant traffic but also going to disrupt narcotic operations including thousands of thousands of tons of opioids that will make it across the border, supply and demand with opioids, that -- heather: they should be harping on when you talk about how many people are killed by these drugs, that should be the number one priority.

administration's cuts and regulatory reforms but democrat sets to regain the house in january could that change in 2019? here to answer that, george washington university's regulatory center and former administrator of the office of information and regulatory affairs, thank you for joining us. let's look at these numbers, billions in following deregulatory action. $12.5 billion, the department of labor, interior, transportation and the epa, those are some big numbers. >> they are. it is important to think about, this is a result of the president's pledge when he took office to eliminate two regulations for every new one they issue and offset the cost of new regulations. that led agencies to
dramatically reduce the flow of new regulations. it is important to distinguish the stock of regulations. >> what do you see when democrats take control of the house? >> that will change things. we are going to see much more oversight than regulatory agencies seen during the last two years. but also getting rid of existing regulations is what the agencies are doing now and that takes more work than slowing down the pace of new regulations would you actually have to write a rule to get rid of a rule so agencies are starting hard work developing the record, doing the analysis, getting public comment before they can issue something. jillian: the regulations from president obama and donald
trump, significantly different numbers. looking at the 1800 for donald trump and 3100 for president obama. what is the difference? >> it is influenced by the president's directive for agencies to offset the cost of new regulations, they want to issue a new regulation. they have to weigh it against what can i get rid of to do that? we have seen a dramatic reduction in the introduction of new regulations. you showed those statistics but even going back to 1993 much fewer regulations than any previous president. jillian: what will the year mean for what donald trump is able together with these regulations? what does it mean for 2020? >> the regulations that actually changed existing rules, things like epa and the department of
transportation, fuel economy standards, they tried to reverse last-minute regulations that would keep fuel economy standards, into the future. they are bound to be litigated, department of labor regulation that they finalized hard to be litigated so we should watch for those agencies efforts to issue final regulations to deregulate and how they fare in the courts. they haven't fared that well in the court so far. >> thank you for your time, appreciate it. busted at the border, suspected gang members arrested and violent crimes they are accused of committing. remember that? they were screaming and crying when donald trump was elected. why millennial's are turning to
