1:00 pm
others might go home to their families. we are told that sam, the police dog will be retired so that they will not lose another member of that family. sam will now go be with corporal singh's wife and young son. trish reagins, next. >> police have arrested a man suspected of killing a police officer in newman california. authorities are saying the alleged gunman was in the country illegally. in the last hour, we just heard stanislas county sheriff adam christianson blamed the state sanctuary law protecting illegal immigrants for this officer's death. hello everyone, i am trish regan in for neil cavuto and this is a special edition of "your world." let's get to william la jeunesse. >> this morning officials arrested in the illegal
1:01 pm
immigrant, gang member and two-time convicted drunk driver in the death of officer ron singh. the sheriff of stanislaus city also confirming the arrest of two others who tried to cover up the whereabouts of national gusz arriaga. the sheriff also throwing gasoline on the already hot immigration debate, when he said it, and quote, you cannot ignore the fact that this could have been preventable based on his prior dui and outstanding active warrants. law enforcement would have been prevented from sharing that information with i.c.e. for those supporting the bill that would have prevented his deportation based on those prayers. he was stopped wednesday morning, and do you see some photos of him there. he came to the u.s. illegally
1:02 pm
from fiji and he was married with a 5-year-old son. that photo was taken christmas day. hours later, he pulled over a gray pickup truck for no plates, and radioed in short time later, shots fired, and hit. he let later died. singh joined the newman police department 11 years ago and was part of a family, not just a department. he worked with his k-9 partner, sam, and narcotics. the suspect lived at a local trailer park and was a farm worker. he entered illegally but we don't know the year. just last week in the neighboring county, the sheriff complained that he had to let a guy out and could not call i.c.e. hours later that man went on a crime spree and killed too. obviously with the situation and the national attention it has gotten from the president and others, this will enter the immigration debate over border
1:03 pm
security. >> so we now know that the suspect, i can tell you, entered our country through our southern border in arizona. that's part of the reason why arizona republican congresswoman debbie let's go says major changes really need to be made. she is living it every day there in her home community. good to have you there. what is your reaction to all of this and to the latest comments? >> it's a very sad situation that an officer had to die at the hands of any legal immigrants. it's just an example of why we need to secure the border and change our loose and lax immigration laws. >> what is it like there where you are in arizona? how do people feel overall about this and what is your concern about the trafficking that's going on right there in your backyard? >> you know, illegal immigration and stopping it has been the number one issue in arizona for
1:04 pm
many years and it was this election year, too. especially in my district. people are compassionate and that's why we have over 1 million immigrants, immigrants here legally. but they want people to follow the laws. they want to know who is coming across the border and they want things done lawfully. that is why when i was in congress, republicans pushed for changing the immigration loophole, so that it is not incentivizing these cartels to exploit children and women. this is a bad problem, and it's up to congress to fix it and i really hope that the democrats will come to the table and negotiate because this is about national security. >> it goes beyond, i think the wall. you need the wall, and i think for various reasons including the symbolism of it. it sends a message to anybody who wants to come here illegall
1:05 pm
illegally. you shouldn't underestimate that. what you are talking about is something on a bigger level and i think that this is something that everyone in the country, both sides could agree on, which is some major immigration reform. and yet the democrats because they are stuck on the wall because, frankly, let's face it. it's a political issue. they don't want anything that this president has promoted as really a signature issue, to seem as though he has succeeded. so because of that they are not moving forward on this meaningful immigration reform to get the good people in and keep the bad people out. >> you are absolutely right. i voted for legislation that i believe was a compromise and it would have funded border security and a border fence, but it also would have allowed daca recipients to stay here legally and to me, that was a compromise. but not one single democrat
1:06 pm
voted for it. last thursday, republicans in the house voted to keep the government open and also included about $1.5 billion and for disaster relief in california and florida. again, not one single democrat voted for it. then it goes over to the senate, and because of their 60 vote rule, they need democrat input. while the democrats have just been austin to obstinate. they will not come to the table and it's very disheartening. i hope that they do. >> now you are in the standoff, and the government is in shutdown mode. how long will that continue? >> i don't think anybody knows right now. i'm back in arizona and i came back last saturday night but i had my bags packed and i'm ready to go in case a deal is made and we can go back and vote for something that's reasonable.
1:07 pm
again, this has been going on for quite some time and in arizona, this is a hugely important issue. our lax immigration laws are creating incentives for people to come here, for people to bring their children here. >> i hear you and this is something that really does need to get resolved and it's coming to a head. i do want to go to bakersfield, california, because that is where the kern county sheriff donny youngblood is speaking right now. this is where the man was apprehended. let's listen in. >> giving him sanctuary in the house, any of those people are subject to arrest and we are committed to making those arrests if we can prove that someone helped him. >> so did those people help transport or -- >> i can't tell you exactly what their role is. this is still an active investigation, and i can tell you that we believe that we they were involved in harboring the
1:08 pm
suspect. >> we can have copies of this made which would probably better. >> during the arrest, how many people were in the home? >> there were five or six people in the home, some i believe may be children. [indistinct question] >> yes. >> a number of units were seen going north on 199 with lights on. did he leave the county on his way north? >> i'm not sure. as of about 45 minutes or an hour ago, he was being interviewed. he was in our handcuffs and they were going to replace them with officer singh's handcuffs and transport him to stanislaus county. >> approximately how long was he in kern county? >> when the sheriff called me
1:09 pm
last night, they had a pretty good idea that he was in the county. the information was, we believed he was headed to mexico and we wanted to ensure that that did not happen. because then there was a long process that occurs that's very cumbersome. >> [indistinct question] >> i don't have that information, whether this was a gang-related incident or not, so i wouldn't want to speculate that either way. >> were the people in the home related to the suspect, or with a family? >> they are related in the sense that they know each other but i don't know about the personal relationship. we are still early on in this investigation and this information was just handed to me a few minutes ago so that we could get it out to you as quickly as we could and to be as accurate as we could.
1:10 pm
>> how many people were arrested in that home? >> three other people were arrested. >> what were they in the home? >> yes. anybody else? the last thing that i will say to you is, when you use a firearm against a police officer, you can run, but you can't hide. this really proves the relationship that we have, not only in this county, and with my partners standing behind me, but throughout the state, that we are committed to providing public safety. and when you attack somebody doing an honorable profession, no stone goes unturned. >> one more question, is the photo that's out there the arrest photo? >> i haven't seen the photo so i
1:11 pm
can answer the question. >> [indistinct question] >> we do not release arrest photos. i haven't seen a photo of him but there is a photo out there. >> [indistinct question] >> no i cannot. any other christians? thank you all for coming. >> we were just listening to the kern county police sheriff who is answering reporters questions regarding the arrest of that illegal immigrant who killed a police officer. he did point out that they arrested him in a home with roughly six people there. it's not clear whether they were family members but they did know each other and he did point out that there were children in that home. that man was said to be making his way back to mexico in hopes of escaping authorities. so a continuing story obviously. we were just speaking to the congresswoman of arizona who said she is aggressively working to get the money for the wall.
1:12 pm
she feels strongly that they needed there in arizona because they are dealing with an influx of illegal immigrants. meanwhile, you have politicians all over trying to deal with this. right now the president says he is not backing down and he needs that money. so he is going to work aggressively and keep the government shut down until he gets it. let's go to hillary vaughn at the white house. >> the acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney says the democrats are not talking to the president. he said the president put his last offer on the table on saturday but democrats walked away. >> what we can't understand is the folks who are from heavily democrat areas, they are home and not talking to him. >> we made an offer saturday night and they got back to us last night and they said, we are leaving. no more discussions. discussions have broken down and we expect this to go on for a while.
1:13 pm
>> lawmakers were there before dabbling out and going home, but house minority leader spokesman says they have given the white house three different paths to end of the shutdown and the white house is the one that didn't take it. >> i think it's an embarrassment any time the government shut down, and this being no exception. we have to work at it until we get to the agreement where the majority say yes. and i think we had that. i told the president went off his meds and who knows what happened. >> while the white house waits for a counter offer, the president is threatening to shut down the southern border and call off trade agreements with mexico tweeting "i would consider closing the southern border a profit operation. we bring the car industry back to the united states where it belongs, and either we build and finish the wall or we close the border." the white house says the president canceled his christmas
1:14 pm
and new year's holiday and has been at the white house making calls and is doing work but most of the congress is out of office and some, like nancy pelosi, are on vacation in hawaii. trish? >> must be nice. something we haven't seen for stocks in quite a while, not a whole lot of grain for the whit white. did we just get news out of china which could be a green light for buying? plus more than 4,000 flight delays reported as severe weather strikes. if you are heading somewhere or heading home, we have what you need to know. don't go anywhere. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ and then, more jobs robegan to appear.. what started with one job spread all around. because each job in energy creates many more in this town.
1:15 pm
1:16 pm
i've always been amazed and still going for my best, even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin... i want that too. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. what's next? reeling in a nice one. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden sign of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner.
1:17 pm
ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you. >> trish: here's something we haven't seen in a while, some good news. a positive week for stocks. we like it. the nasdaq and s&p 500 up after a wild and volatile week of trading. it's all coming out with china allowing u.s. rice imports for the first time ever. maybe a bit of a thaw in those trade tensions. could that get stocks back on track as we head into the new year? we are watch, asking our market watchers. good to see you all. jim, starting with you, what are you thinking. but let's not forget the economic fundamentals are pretty good. >> economic fundamentals are pretty good. things are going pretty smoothly
1:18 pm
there and retail spending is on the upswing after many years of doing nothing. business spending is still pretty good, with coincident economic indicators, all pretty strong. so the economy is doing pretty good, we will probably have a 2.4% gdp quarter which is not as strong as the first six months, but it's still a pretty good quarter. and we are going to have the end of tax selling, which is now officially -- what we have maybe another half day, but it's pretty much over now. >> is that what some of the reasons we have seen this downside? >> and people held them over two or three years and, they were having capital gains where the market wasn't doing anything. so we had some tax offset. then you overlay that with the
1:19 pm
fed that pretty much fit the bed and many people's eyes when they came out for the december meeting, and the press conference which didn't help either. we have what seems to be a presidency that seems to be more unpredictable than we thought in the first place. >> trish: let me get over to alan for a second because jim just brought up the fed. here's what i would say about that. sometimes there is too much of a concern or focus on the fed, but if our economy is strong and we are doing well, i think we can handle a quarter point. it may not be ideal but we can handle it. what i don't think we can handle is maxine waters going after all the banks as she has promised she will. we don't want to hear more of this rhetoric from the likes of nancy pelosi and we don't want more investigations that are on the road to nowhere, but that is what we are going to get.
1:20 pm
but could the house a change ie leadership affect the markets? >> i focus more on price than politics which is hard to do these days. we made new lows and made a higher weekly close so that's positive. and we are 7% off that bottom. higher interest rates, we are at extremely low levels at 2.5%. >> trish: you are not worried about the quarter-point move here or a quarter-point move there? >> no. i think that issue could be set aside and we could focus on what's important. we are looking for about a 14% earnings growth. >> so who wants to complain about that? there's a lot of fundamental economic growth going on and it looks like we will continue to see a rise in quarterly earnings. so why is everybody breaking
1:21 pm
out? >> everyone is freaking out probably by the reasons you mentioned. the democrats are taking over the house in january so are they getting rid of the tax cuts in place for regulation? i think the market is scared about that. i'm still bullish in the market for 2019, but you see a lot of selling for many, many reasons. i definitely think that people are taking profits or selling out of their losers because they don't know what to anticipate with 2018. long term, i do believe that the market makes brand-new long-term highs again, but i called in a new year's eve rally. we fallen off so much in the last two weeks that we will not even come back neutral before where we started and opened on the year which was about 24,800 for the bout mike dowell. the market is trying, but we are really running out of time.
1:22 pm
>> trish: i commend you for watching the show and thank you so much for commending my opinion. good to see you, thank you so much. blizzards, flooding, freezing rain, you name it and it's all out there. we will catch you up on this crazy weather, stay here.
1:23 pm
1:24 pm
1:25 pm
>> trish: oh, my gosh, this is not good. we are learning that there are already 5700 flight delays right now so if you are going anywhere this weekend, flying anywhere this weekend, it could be challenging. wild weather is going on throughout the country right now and rick is here to give us an update on all of it. >> so it gets a little bit better this weekend but today was rough, yesterday was really bad. the cold air has settled in
1:26 pm
behind this storm with abrupt blizzard conditions across parts of the northern plains and it's really warm across the east with a warmer side to the storm. temperatures have dropped here as you can see since yesterday, 26 degrees cooler in kansas city than we were 24 hours ago. new york city's 18 degrees warmer than it was 24 hours ago and that's all part of the stor storm. big delays in airports, and the roads have had lots of problems with flooding. we had over 11 inches of rain overnight in louisiana and it's a very slow moving storm with a lot of moisture. that combination remains for flooding as well as all of the rain that we have seen this year. atlanta is now the second rainiest year we've ever had, and, here's how this plays out. this moves on through for the most part overnight tonight and
1:27 pm
we are also watching a week storm across parts of new mexico. blizzard warnings in albuquerque right now but take a look at what comes over the weekend. we see this continued flow of moisture across parts of the southeast, so a very gloomy one. anywhere north of the tennessee valley, you are okay. the pacific northwest, more moisture comes in. take a look at where we are windshield wise, that's really cold canadian air and sometimes you think that will invite across a lot of the u.s., rho it retreats and we get those temperatures going back a little bit better. one last thing, times square new year's eve is not a cold one this year. temperatures into the mid 40s and rain, which will feel cold if you are standing out there for that long. >> at least it's not below whatever. and some travelers will be
1:28 pm
heading to times square for new year's eve where new york city is getting ready for a crowd of 2 million people. fox news 'o'brien janne joins us right now with more on how the city is preparing for it all. >> the new york's police department spends all your training and preparing for new new year's eve here in times square and here on monday night, some 2 million spectators will be standing out here for up to 12 hours to watch the ball drop and usher in 2019. the new york police department has taken all the security measures one could imagine. and sniper teams, nypd drone and canine bomb units. roads will begin to close at 4:00 a.m. on monday and then they will move in sanitation trucks and police vehicles strategically placed in and around times square to prevent a vehicle from ramming into the crowd. sniper teams will be placed throughout where crowds will be standing and they will have a
1:29 pm
360-degree view of times square. they will be paying special attention to the 35 hotels in the area and looking at anything suspicious there. these are drones and weather permitting they will be flying this unmanned aircraft for the first time. this copter will fly from the roof of times square and it will be tethered to a power source line, equipped with a live camera and thermal imagery providing a close-up view of the crowd below. also new this year, they will be using explosive odor pursuit dogs. the nypd started using these types of dogs in november. this is 6-year-old german shepherd officer frankie and his handler. frankie especially trained to be able to sniff out explosives from 70-yard plus away and hunt down where that explosive is coming from. again, that is in defense of a
1:30 pm
potential suicide bomber. that's what rick said about the weather and i'm really happy it's not going to be negative 4 degrees like last year. the bad news is, for those folks out here in the rain, you cannot bring an umbrella. they love to make it as hard as possible for folks to stand out here. >> trish: that makes sense. thank you so much. those drones are pretty cool. house democrats are reportedly beefing up staff to launch probe upon probe, to president trump when they take over. but do they risk going overboard? we will debate it. also central american countries where these caravans are forming, are they risking their foreign aid right now? the new threat coming from the white house. we will see you right back here.
1:31 pm
1:32 pm
>> trish: we told you about stocks rallying for the first positive week this month but it turns out that we are still on our way down from the all-time high we hit earlier this year. we will be back in 60 seconds, i will see you here. adjusts to keep you both comfortable. it can even warm your feet to help you fall asleep faster. so you wake up ready to make your resolutions, reality. and now, the queen sleep number 360 c4 smart bed is only $1299. ranked #1 in customer satisfaction with mattresses by j.d. power. plus, 24-month financing on all beds. ends new year's day. sleep number. proven, quality sleep.
1:33 pm
>> trish: a new report that democrats are hiring a team of lawyers for likely investigations into the trump administration when they take over control of the house next week has hit. is this what we are going to see? come next year, from the dems? chump campaign advisor, rochelle ritchie, kelly jane torres. good to see you all.
1:34 pm
i hope not, medicine. it's a complete distraction for the country, and the democrats seem to like this kind of thing for political reasons. >> you know i think very similar to what we have seen in the media, they lay their hate for this cause for a judgment or what they are doing in the position they were elected to do. one of the things that concerns me the most is when we look at the subpoena power, or the quotes for nancy pelosi saying, it's a great arrow to have in your quiver for negotiating other subjects. that's very concerning and something i think we need to watch moving forward to make sure that they don't use the subpoena power in an inappropriate way just because i hate our president. >> with that backfire? you worry at some point, they will backfire a little here.
1:35 pm
>> i think it's no surprise but democrats are hiring a staff to new counsel to possibly look into donald trump as far as tax returns or his relationship with russia. and that's -- >> isn't that why he's there? >> that's democratic members of congress and it really the republican members of congress are there to protect our democracy, not to protect an investigation necessarily. but i do think that the democrats have to be careful. they've only talked about impeachment in certain circumstances and you have to be careful with the impeachment word. americans are split on the idea and they don't control the house, and the senate. in order for impeachment to happen obviously they would have to have two-thirds of the vote from republicans and i don't think they will get that. i think they have to be very careful with that. >> trish: they are spinning their wheels into nothingness.
1:36 pm
>> so she makes a very good point, in that, they are going to need to thread the needle. they want to appease the base and of course they want to be themselves and the way they do that is by attacking the president. at some point american say, this is getting ridiculous. we have nothing from mueller, no proof of russia collusion but you are selling a narrative that you which is true. and because of your behavior, are not going to vote for a democrat? >> i think a lot of people vote for their member of the house of representatives, and, they are trying to get rid of them by any means possible. does that mean they then spend less time on say come up
1:37 pm
medicare for all and abolishing ice? and i.c.e.? i have mixed feelings. most people don't want a doubling. that's a doubling of democratic bureaucrats in washington and i'm not sure that's why people the democrats to congress. >> where does it lead them ultimately? i guess if they generate a few headlines out of it which is their goal in the mainstream media, but other than that i do think that people are getting fatigued by the whole bit. >> you know with everyone and their brother, i think it would be very unwise for them to go after the president for no reason as many people claim they are doing now. that's direct, identifiable and quantifiable results. going after the president with investigation after investigation would not be a great use of taxpayer money or time. those people are elected to produce results and that's what
1:38 pm
they should be doing if they have hopes of staying in office or may be rising to a higher office in the future. >> one of the concerns that everyone has right now is that washington is just broken. i mean, flat broke in. because of this division and because everyone is pursuing something for political reasons as opposed to reasons that are substantive, or bogged down in a situation where nothing is getting done. just look at it, the government to shut down. >> obviously washington, d.c., is divided. but let's be clear, the mueller investigation is not over and from the last report, we have seen two things as far as chump being called the individual one and, this alleged meeting that was supposed to happen between trump and putin which would have resulted in phenomenal. >> that report is not great. i spoke with kimberley strassel who's been all over this from the very beginning and she
1:39 pm
really poked holes in the sourcing of that story which are relevant and it's something that would have come out a whole lot earlier. anyway, i'm sure is fascinating for the democrats to stay on this trail. i just wonder if it is in fact destructive for them ultimately. we will see. >> were there any takers? we will talk about it oh!

>> trish: is it time to say adios to sears? anyone who wanted to buy the troubled retailer out of bankruptcy had until 4:00 p.m. eastern to place their bid. where there any takers? it doesn't sound like it. jeff flock is in niles, illinois. it's too bad, sears is such a part of american history. >> you said it, trish. we've been checking the fcc website and staying in touch with's ears. they have been tweeting some sales, the auto center tweeted a few things and, twitter has been blowing up. so many people tweeting about sears. this is a sears store that closed, and before today is over it may be all of the sears closed. hundreds have already been closed and it may be that all of them are closed.
1:43 pm
there was a potential for a bid by eddie lampert, off the fellow who a ceo of sears and at some quite critical from his tenure thought about a bid from him. he needed to secure financing but at this point it seems clear, unless there was an extension in this, but he has not secured it and will not, and that means liquidation for all of sears. the company announced an additional 80 80 stores today d be closed whether there was a bid or not, and now it appears more no bid and no more sears. what can i tell you, the amazon of its day replaced by the amazon of today and, sears no more. the sign is still up on this one, but that may be liquidated soon as well. trish? >> trish: all right, thank you very much. jeff flock. meanwhile president donald trump renewing a threat to honduras,

♪ >> trish: president trump calling to cut off all aid to honduras, guatemala and el salvador over lack of help dealing with illegal immigratio immigration. honduras, and el salvador are doing nothing for the united states but taking our money. word is that a new caravan is forming in honduras and they are doing nothing about it. we will be cutting off all aid to these three countries, taking advantage of the u.s. for years. former democratic congressman brad miller with more on the
1:48 pm
issue. more aid from anybody who is willing to take some kind of role in stopping the caravan? >> the money is not going to the governments for the most part. the vast majority of the money we have provided to foreign aid -- it goes to the united states i.c.e. program or through charities, ngos like catholic relief services. it's not funding provided to those governments. the circumstances in those countries are desperate which is why people want to leave. we have not in the past come down hard on countries for trying to keep their people in. >> trish: up but currently we are not coming down on them either. >> trish: we are not coming down on very many of these countries who would give hundreds of billions in aid to to try to make sure they actually improve circumstances there, so these caravans don't form and start.
1:49 pm
>> again, the money is not going to the governments but the aid directly to the people of those countries. >> trish: the government does have a role industry beating the money. so the government has a role in all of this. and you are talking about hundreds of millions of dollars that our taxpayer dollars, the idea of being, if they can't get their act together, these governments can't embrace a better system of government that is more equitable and actually ensures that the proper people are going to be getting the right kind of aid. why are we giving them money in the first place? >> i don't think the money is going through the government. it's largely administered by our own government. i traveled on congressional delegation since a decade i was in congress and i saw these work. they do it directly. >> trish: regardless, this is still a government, sir. in each of these various
