that miss him and a lot of people i don't know who worked days and nights to make this happen. i would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. >> reporter: the suspect was in the us illegally according to the local sheriff who angrily denounced california's sanctuary laws which the sheriff said prevented him from being deported for previous dui convictions. >> this is a criminal illegal alien with prior criminal activity that should have been reported to ice. we were prohibited, law enforcement was prohibited because of sanctuary laws and that led to the encounter with officer singh. i suggesting the outcome could have been different with law
enforcement wasn't restricted, prohibited or had their hands tied. >> reporter: officer singh was started at 1:00 am wednesday morning after stopping the driver on suspicion of dui. moments later he radioed shots fired, i have been hit. he was a legal immigrant who had come from fiji where he was born, he studied criminal justice once he got here and spent 12 years in law enforcement, 7 of those with the newman police department. even took and paid for extra english lessons to help make himself better understood by his colleagues. the police department has just 12 officers, a close-knit family in the words of the police chief and a family that will never forget singh. >> we watch this case closely, thank you very much.
homeland security secretary kirstjen neilsen in el paso and 8-year-old guatemalan board was detained before dying in custody after two hospital visits. 20 multiple stations and substations operated by customs and border protection and meeting with the mps and other first responders, scheduled to move on to yuma, arizona tomorrow. judging from his tweets donald trump is keeping a close eye on the border as he stays in dc this weekend, lawmakers are out of town amidst this partial government shutdown. richardson joins us with the latest. >> too bad i'm not going live from hawaii. supposed to be here. there is no indication this arsenal government shutdown and this year. congress is mostly out of town, donald trump is still your tweeting we will be forced to close the southern border entirely if the obstructionist democrats do not give us money to finish the wall and change
the ridiculous immigration laws that our country is settled with. i do believe there was a congress and president who would approve. the president is threatening again to cut aid to honduras, guatemala and el salvador for failing to prevent their citizens from traveling illegally to the us border. the white house and democrats are a few billion dollars apart on funding for border security, donald trump insists on many for a wall. democrats say the wall proposal is immoral, ineffective and expensive. republicans are now trying to pin shutdown blame on nancy pelosi saying she's refusing to negotiate on wall funding to appeal to liberal house democrats and assure their support in her race for speaker. >> he does not have the votes. if she cut a deal with the president of any sort before her election on january 3rd she's at risk of losing her speakership. we are in this for the long haul. >> reporter: are public and are pointing to a story published in the washington free beacon claiming she's spending the shutdown vacationing at a luxury resort in hawaii, her office has
refused to deny the story. capitol hill teams and leaders from both parties haven't been seen lately on capitol hill. republicans say democrats of shutdown negotiation, democrats a the shutdown should never have happened, new york congress minute democratic caucus chairman jeffries tweets day 7 of the trump shutdown, republican told the american people hostage, we refuse to pay a $5 billion ransom note, in other words, take a hike, congressional leaders will give 24 hours notice to return to washington to vote on any agreement on the government. >> we will all be ready if it happens. let's bring in tonight's power panel, the border patrol council vice president and fox news political analyst caldwell, welcome to all of you. i went to play a little more of what the sheriff had to say
today, california has sanctuary state policies and makes his job tougher. is what he said. >> suggesting the outcome could have been different if law enforcement wasn't restricted, prohibited or had their hands tied because of political interference. why are we providing sanctuary for criminals, gang members? a conversation we need to have. >> first and foremost, prayers go out to the family, to the community. it is important in these times that you don't use a crime like this to demonize all undocumented immigrants. we want this murderer to have justice that is swift and harsh but that certainly does not mean there is a link of criminality
to the rest of undocumented immigrants. >> i don't think anyone thinks that. >> many republicans want that to be the case when the reality is undocumented immigrants in this country commit considerably less crime than nativeborn -- >> we are talking this one situation where according to law enforcement officials involved this man should have not been in the country, he had previous dui arrests, he came here illegally so in the case of this family and the slain officer we are talking about somebody that potentially the state's own policies allowed this to happen. >> i'm disappointed with the rhetoric on this issue, this is a safety issue, not a partisan issue. if we look at the pure numbers, 74% of individuals brought in by
ice in 2017, the with previous felony convictions we are talking about century city status of places like chicago and the state of california we don't provide any funding for those that ice may want to retain, they may want to detain those individuals, this is making our country less safe and something that i think two days ago on this network democrats have to own any criminality perpetrated by individuals that came to this country illegally because they refuse to negotiate with the president on border security so when you have a democratic caucus who refused to negotiate, when you have local elected officials who refuse to follow the trend that individuals are coming over here illegally and doing illegal activities they could possibly harm us citizens like we just saw. this is problematic and i'm so surprised at what you said.
>> there is the link between criminality and undocumented immigrants. shannon: let me bring art in here. we are talking about this case and what happened here. a lot of folks say both parties bear the blame come both have been in control of the white house, the senate and the house and have not gotten this fixed. you know firsthand what is going on at the border. she has been there many times before but congress, it is up to them to fix this regardless of which party is in control, they don't seem to be able to get it done. >> being an illegal in this country and the security of the nation's borders has nothing to do with what political party you
are in first and foremost. this is a horrific terrific incident that happened with this officer dying and it is 100% because of sanctuary cities, 100% because you create a magnet for these individuals that like to break the law which just by the fact that you are illegally in this country you are already a criminal plain and simple. people say he's just illegally in the country, not a criminal, is illegally in the country, that makes mcconnell. it is at the hands of any single individual, politician or whoever it may be that support sanctuary cities. >> democrats take over the house in january, they will refund the government, they were not have funding for the wall, that goes to the president, he won't sign anything that doesn't have funding for the wall. where does this standoff end? >> one place we can go from here is revisit the policies we saw in the obama administration that
focused on criminals that were here undocumented and how to put in smarter policies to target them and get them out of the country. when we look at how this administration is dealing with immigration and throwing out mothers who have been here for 20 years with no criminal record and anyone they coming contact with, that takes away the focus. it would be better to focus on those criminals and get them out. >> this is part of what you do as border patrol. you've seen this firsthand. what is the reality? he became known as the deep order in chief turning a rain so many people. it wasn't positive for a lot of people who supported president obama but we know the policies of turning people back and denying asylum are not new. why are they treated differently now? >> because these people care
more about being angry at president than they do the united states and american citizens. that is what it is, the way i see it. i have skin in the game. i'm out there in the field arresting these individuals and it is easy to monday morning quarterback it behind the desk. donald trump has done everything possible to make sure this country moves forward and there is border security and that is the reality of the entire situation. he is a president that has reached out to national border patrol council committees on point with everything he says and everyone needs to get on the same page because it is getting frustrating to see so many people that don't care about the american public or our borders and border security and even with this shutdown i have skin in the game. we don't know when or if the next paycheck will come. i've been misquoted in some of
the media or some of my words have been twisted and i can tell you the national border patrol council which i'm part of fully supports the president and the shutdown if that is what the president is asking for. >> to your same question to him, the reason we see nothing being done, democrats have seen, our latino brothers and sisters coming in as a power base for them. in 2006 barack obama sat on the floor of the senate we needed to secure the fence and 26 democrats voted in favor of it, they talked about border security in a positive way back then but now latinos are going to be the new major minority, they are seeing this as a power block for them so they might as well support anything that will keep them. >> republicans have control of
the white house, the house and senate for the past two years and their base wants to know why they didn't get this done. >> that is a very good question. we didn't have the votes in the senate. similar to that you have to work with democrats. trump offered a deal in daca, they wanted to keep the issue alive for the midterm elections. >> reneging on the deal. with daca he renewed on so many deals. if the president is about making deals you have to be a man of your word. he sent mike pence out to vote for him and reneged on that deal. how can you get to a place of compromise and understanding of the president can't even keep his word on this issue. shannon: he asked for a lot more than that. they are offering compromise
deals, they will have nothing until nancy pelosi's speaker so one week from today maybe we will have this conversation again and see what is happening. thank you all, appreciate your time. the florida sun sentinel publishing a bombshell report on the school shooting massacre in february of this year, unprepared and overwhelmed. the paper goes on to report two decades after columbine and 5 years after sandy hook educators and police still weren't ready for parkland, surveillance video on nicholas cruz in the beginning moments of the master telling another student you better get out of here, things are going to get messy and pulls out the ar 15 to begin shooting, the video shows deputy scott peterson, the school resource officer the only armed lawmen on the campus, reportedly failed to go inside the building despite shots being fired. he ordered a school lockdown instead of ordering deputies
toward the building, later revealed in this report that offices, quote, may rush toward gunfire rather than shall according to policy in broward county. pushback on one of donald trump's nominee for key federal agency by a member of his own party. we will tell you why senator blakely is trying to block the nominee because of what he says is a religious freedom issue. and the family research council tony perkins weighs in on why this nominee is so controversial. i forgot. chevy also won a j.d. power dependability award for its light-duty truck the chevy silverado. oh, and since the chevy equinox and traverse also won chevy is the only brand to earn the j.d. power dependability award across cars, trucks and suvs-three years in a row. phew. third time's the charm... they seem to be the very foundation of your typical bank. capital one is anything but typical.
>> shannon: republican se >> republican senator mike lee taking a stand against one of donald trump's nominee's? federal agency. the controversy has flown under the radar in the middle of the government shutdown but to the right and the left are big issues at stake from traditional marriage workplace discrimination.
why he is blocking his own party's nominee. >> the eeoc is there to protect people's of all rights in the workplace and she's not new to the agency, she's been a commissioner since 2010, receiving support from democrats and republicans, donald trump renominated her to her poster year ago, she's defending her name, he's willing to do what he can do to make sure she is out of a job. >> i object to her confirmation. >> mike lee is clear he wents the commissioner out overconcern on his stance on religious liberty and is prepared for a fight. >> the federal government should never be used as a tool to stamp out religious liberty. that principle is so central to our nation's founding and human happiness itself. it is so important we have to stand behind it. miss feldman once to deny exactly that.
>> the first and open the gate commissioner who was quoted in a 2006 article as saying she had a difficult time finding any case in which religious liberty should win over sexual liberty, she claims she was misquoted and put out a written statement of his position. senator lee and others may feel they kept a rabbit opponent a religious liberty off the equal employment opportunity commission. they are wrong. it is true that they have insured that someone who cares deeply about both religious liberty and lb gt rights won't be protecting those interests from the perch of the eeoc but i have thought for the civil rights of lb gt people, religious people and others for years. i won't be stopping now. she went on to tell fox news in an email senator lee refused to meet with me when i asked to do so. perhaps that is why he does not know what i actually believe. in 2009 she defended religious liberty. >> i have a deep understanding
of religious practice and a deep-seated tolerance for religious difference. >> reporter: washington democrat senator patty very says she must be confirmed for the sake of millions of employees across the country. >> because of the objection of a single republican senator it is possible the eeoc will be unable to conduct its most critical work. >> reporter: lee says he will continue to fight to protect religious liberty, concept he believes the eeoc should welcome. >> who is she to decide whether someone should be permitted their own religious beliefs because those beliefs happen to conflict with a particular political worldview. >> reporter: in an email tonight she told me her father was a proud rabbi, she said he would be very upset to see the way she is being portrayed in the media with the situation going on. shannon: we will keep an eye on
it. her commission expires new year's eve if the senate doesn't do something and they are not here. >> millions of people around the country if she is not in. >> joining us now attorney perkins of the family research council to talk about this. welcome. i want to play more of center early's critique. here is the senator. >> she has written that she sees a conflict between religious belief and lb gt liberty is a 0-sum game where a gain for one side and held a corresponding loss for the other side. i see no reason that should be the case and that is incompatible with our nation's long tradition of pluralism and religious freedom.
>> reporter: her response, it is out of context quote that suggests i believe there is a 0-sum game between religious liberty and lb gt rights and lb gt rights must always prevail no matter what. that is not my position and never has been. i care about religious pluralism in our country even if that means protecting religious organizations whose views i disagree with, that is the point of pluralism. what is getting lost in translation? >> you have to put it in context. she spoke at the family research council, i invited her to speak on the panel and she made comments reflecting the collision between religious freedom and sexual liberty and she then suggested she saw religious liberty would lose but she's also the architect of the employment nondiscrimination act which repeatedly refused to pass. this is literally sacrificing the first amendment on the altar of sexual liberty in his him and
she was unable to get better congress so barack obama appointed her to the eeoc. couldn't get her through the senate when harry reid was majority leader so he did recess appointment, she was subsequently, after harry reid changed levels were only a majority were needed for presidential nominee, she has been controversial even to her own party. she has taken positions that are 180 ° from the trump administration when it comes to religious freedom. and so i applaud mike lee, i spoke with a number of times about this case and applaud him for taking a stand in defense of religious liberty. sheer fact in your of the past, the morocco -- barack obama euro hostility to religious freedom, we don't need her on the eeoc leading that commission forward. >> you know how this works. the president has the opportunity to appoint members, 5 members of the eeoc to represent his majority party but he goes to the democrats for their nominations and
suggestions on the other two members. she the current sitting member of the commission so he is following up with what democrats want which is to keep her there. there is this issue as we talked about with david that her commission expires, clearly it doesn't appear there is any way they are going to. mitch mcconnell, senate majority leader could force a vote. here's what they say. americans need a fully functional eeoc to combat dissemination and sexual harassment in the workplace and the anti-lgbt queue views should not stand in the way of those seeking justice under the law. mitch mcconnell should abide by president and told the full senate vote on the nominees with fair-minded voices will prevail. do you think he should do that? >> i don't think he should. you have to look at the advantage he has as a returning member of the commission. i serve on the federal commission. those existing members influence new members. the eeoc lined up in federal court against the trump
administration's own department of justice on the redefinition of terms such as sexual discrimination and what sex means where this is furthering the lawlessness of the obama administration were the unilaterally changed the terms of the antidiscrimination law and the 1974 title vii as it pertains to employment. they unilaterally redefine those terms, she's doing that by bureaucratic fiat so i think mitch mcconnell would be wrong to move forward with this. mike lee is taking the right position. i don't think the president is pushing this. it was giving the democrats what they want, chuck schumer wanted her. i think she needs to be off the commission. shannon: i know exactly how much power the eeoc wields and you have to ask questions about congress, how much power has been delegated to federal
agencies because they don't answer to the people, they are unelected and have quite a bit of power. we will keep an eye on it and track it and have senator lee here in the new year to talk to us about it in the new year. happy new year. up next, big tech in the closet, congress expected to face off against social media, new regulations and potential oversight on content and privacy when lawmakers get back in the new year. >> they can't just say they trust us, we got your back. >> look at the winners and losers on capitol hill, congress's 2018 year in review. chad program by the numbers when we return. gy touches so many industries, it supports 10 million u.s. jobs.

back by popular demand, chad program is here to break it down by the numbers. >> 2018 marks the end of one of those were times republicans control the house and senate, good time to take stock of what the gop did and didn't do. take the longtime gop promise to repeal and replace obamacare. after one failed attempt house republicans muscled through their own healthcare measure which then died in the senate was republicans reengineered the nation's tax system for the first time in 3 decades. gdp topped 4% in the second 1:45,018 for the first time in four years. economic average, 3% for the first time in 13 years was nevertheless political observers blame the tax law for republicans losing house seats in new york, new jersey and california, residents can no longer deduct high-level local
taxes from the federal taxable. was never addressed and infrastructure bill and bills to fund the border wall and provide pathways to citizenship for some daca recipients, the president had this message for those republicans during a press conference. >> that will be a great election point for us. i told them do what you want and ultimately we will come to something and perhaps after the election or before but as of this moment democrats are not going to vote for anything because they are resisting or obstructing, okay, thank you very much. >> there were bipartisan successes. democrats in the house and senate finally got together on a long-awaited reform of the nation's criminal justice system. the law dominates vendors were sentences, gives inmates better training to reenter society ready to work. lawmakers approved a major bill addressing the nation's opioid crisis and even though part of the government is closed the senate moved at its fastest
clipping decades on annual spending bills which is why this is a partial government shutdown. congress worked out the details on 5 of the 12 appropriations bills months ago. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell often declared the senate is in the personal business confirming two supreme court nominees including the knockdown drag out fight over brett kavanaugh, 32 circuit court judges, 51 district court judges. we all learned in fifth grade congress is designed to pass law. the founders created congress to stop law. consider this. lawmakers introduced 13,549 bills this congress, 338 became law, that is 0.02%. 229 bills became law in the last congress and not bill destined to become a lot to fund the quarter of the government now held in limbo during the spending fight on the border wall.
>> we will see what 2019 brings. when it comes to cybersecurity, a year in review might highlight billions of people affected by data breaches or questions over bias in social media content and jillian turner report some in congress hope 2019 might bring more oversight and online security. >> members of commerce are using the partial government shutdown is an opportunity for two big cyber battles in the new year. first up, regulating big tech. both sides of the aisle have their sites set on the big 3 social media company, facebook, twitter, google and youtube. >> they are second fiddle to the europeans protecting privacy of their folks more than we do. >> we have to but the rules of the road in place, they can't just they trust us, we got your back. >> not everyone wants the same thing, democrats want social media companies to get rid fake news faster than they did in 2016 to avoid foreign election interference was republicans want to hold the big 3 accountable for anti-conservative bias, one thing they can agree on, both
parties want new legislation on the books before the 2020 campaign season kicks off. another issue most americans probably haven't heard much about, data encryption was republicans want legislation that forces tech companies like apple to decrypt data when national security is at stake. they are taking cues from rod rosenstein who is keeping this is when the spotlight rebuking tech companies that refuse to decrypt their data for investigators. companies are in the business of generating profit. i don't blame them for considering law enforcement other safety concerns but what is good for a technology company isn't necessarily good for america. democrats are protecting americans privacy, they worry if investigators can access any encrypted data they want todd: abuses in the future. 2018 was a tough year for social media platforms and their uses, breaches of facebook, twitter and google alone resulted in 619
million user accounts and that is a conservative estimate. he is hoping to thousand 19 is more secure. >> new laws for the new year. tonight's real news roundup. starting january 1st washington state will begin imposing fines on people who try to pass off ordinary pets as service animals, maximum penalty, $50. in california judges will be able to decide who gets custody of a pet during a divorce proceeding, judges will take into account who takes care of the pets and feeds them. tougher gun control measures go on the books in illinois including a 72 hour waiting. go on all gun purchases. the new law will allow family members are police to ask a judge to temporarily remove guns from someone they think is a threat to themselves or others. in tennessee women will be required to get an ultrasound

continues healthily. >> reporter: donald from made the decision to pull out of syria following a call with his turkish counterpart, the former us ambassador to syria under the obama administration supports donald trump's decision to pull out. northeastern syria would not have enabled washing to and leverage any important concessions from damascus, toronto or moscow. syrians, not us troops and stabilization teams can reverse that. we would do well to be humbler about our abilities especially in the face of sustained, widespread regional hostility. the start of theory's civil war, bashar al-assad no longer feels isolated, gulf states opposed to his work coming back to damascus. marine announced it will reopen its embassy in syria, one day after the united arab emirates did the same. us officials tell me there are no plans to withdraw any americans from syria. complete withdrawal from the country could take months.

38-year-old father died of heart attack after riding through the skull island attraction, the family said the signing was warning the ride through king kong's natural habitat, people with heart conditions shouldn't risk it, there wasn't a sign in spanish. the other case, new york times suing account when you court with the right to curse at players and flip them off. they say their first amendment rights were violated by five police officers after they flipped off giants players and told them they blanking suck. these are giants fans, they were angry their team was losing, you are the jury. marjorie and david bruno, thank you for joining us tonight. we just showed a little video. they were at the game, yelling at their own players because they were so mad they were losing this game. the police say they warned they needed to call down and quit cursing, the language, the
flipping them off, they end up getting arrested. let's get into a little bit of this was a report afterwards, the santa clara police department and patrick flynn, one of the plaintiffs in this case was belligerent, intoxicated and violating the stadium's code of conduct and then said patrick flynn had been warned about their behavior, they were being ejected from the stadium when they became uncooperative and physically resistant and refused to leave their seats. >> talking about issues of drunkenness, that in and of itself there's no first amendment violation. slipping off to the players, the first amendment says all speech, this is as follows a particular exception is protected. the interfered with that speech
with the arrest. you have to look at whether the limitation of that speech was justified by the fact they wanted a safe environment. i don't think they can show that it fell into one of the exceptions that is excluded from freedom of speech. it is not inciting a riot. it is not criminal speech. it is not obscenity in terms of the law's insanity, not pornography of any of those things so they have a decent case. shannon: part of their complaint, the force used against the plaintiffs was excessive, unreasonable without cause and was elaborate in difference to their health and safety. one guy over one of the railings, plaintiffs suffered by leader, physical pain, emotional distress and deprivation of constitutional rights. going through this they also talked about the fact that one
of the guys was taken into this holding area, put into a body wrap, for 30 or 40 minutes, immobilizing him. this really ratcheted up quickly. >> they have better claims about injuries and the way they are treated by police than the first amendment. getting to the first amendment, this is a private place, private stadium. the officer in the stadium, code of conduct prevents these people from acting unruly. security can detain, take them out, ask them to leave, they are allowed to do that. on the injuries, police have to act reasonable. i am sure the police officers will be, they were resisting, that is what they were charged with. when someone is resisting it is not a good scene, doesn't look good. i've seen it on video. this one i didn't see particularly. that is going to be the perspective. shannon: i get crazy at football games myself but never arrested. this is the case at the themepark i want to work
through. the family attorney suing universal says it is not a crazy request to have signs in different languages, it is quite basic, you're asking for international travelers, this is a mecca for tourism, central florida, a very basic thing that should be followed for the safety of patrons. >> i disagree they legally have to do it. is a good idea? yes, it is a good idea. to file a lawsuit and claim this orlando themepark was negligent in not posting spanish, i disagree. the fact of the matter is 72 million visitors came into orlando theme parks outside the united states from all different languages, not just spanish. in addition they had an english warning and pictures that went with that. not just spanish. pictures were probably enough to give this guy notice. he was going on the ride anyway. shannon: final word on this case. >> for me it is simply an issue
of whether they had a duty of care. what is the point of having a c interact with it. the fact is there were 41 million spanish speakers in the united states, there are over 1 million who come in from outside countries mostly predominately spanish-speaking countries. it is not a 1-off that a place like universal studios or a themepark like this one would have a spanish sign for these kinds of warnings especially if it is a health risk. safety is a safety issue for everyone, not just english speakers and addressing this issue that they should have it in both languages. shannon: marjorie and david, thank you for making your arguments. we put it to the jury, let us know what you think at fox news
night or shannon bream, thanks, guys. tonight we end on a somber note. we would like to pay tribute and say farewell to bree payton who has been a guest on our program, close friend with her lead writer who like so many other people today is devastated by the news that this beautiful 26-year-old woman, brilliant and smart, suddenly passed away today in san diego, she was a writer for the federalist news site, her family, friends and colleagues are shocked at her death, possibly h1 and one flu or meningitis was involved, our prayers are with her and friends and family. they set up a scholarship fund that will go towards those supporting young rising christian leaders. we remember bree tonight. because energy touches so many industries, it supports 10 million u.s. jobs.
