2:04 am
almost 19 years as we work with our allies to destroy -- it is time to give our brave warriors in syria a warm welcome home. my administration is holding constructive talks with a number of afghan groups including the taliban and. the hour has come to at least try for peace. >> reporter: democrats and speaker pelosi sat silently for much of the speech, democrat women wore white in a sign of solidarity for women's suffrage but even they rose to their feet when the president noted that 58% of new jobs under his economy were filled by women. jillian: a wild moment. rob: stacy abrams delivered the democratic response to the state
2:05 am
of the union. the former georgia gubernatorial candidate calling other president to recognize the country's diversity. >> even as i'm disappointed by the president's approach to our problems, i still don't want him to fail but we need him to tell the truth and to respect his duties and respect the extraordinary diversity that defines america. jillian: abrams was not the only one reacting. for bernie sanders called on donald trump to unite the country. >> when you are president, you bring our people together. that is what a president is supposed to do. in an unprecedented way that is not what this president is doing. he is trying to divide us up. rob: bernie sanders, possible presidential candidate slammed the president for failing to address the middle class.
2:06 am
jillian: fox news alert, donald trump demanding tougher border security during his state of the union address as thousands of migrants waits across into the us. >> the lawless state of the southern border is a threat to the safety, security and financial well-being of all america. i have ordered another 3750 troops to the southern border to prepare for this tremendous onslaught. rob: griff jenkins is live on the ground in mexico with the caravan, the democrats hated it when he brought up the caravan last late. what is going on? >> reporter: i will tell you who else isn't a fan of the caravans, the mexican officials here who have to deal with this. you see the mexican army, the military police, state and local
2:07 am
officials trying to keep things under control. the migrants have settled in but if you look inside, they spent a lot of resources because in that shelter you see them separated into family units, women and children on one side, on the other mostly all men. they are giving them blankets, resources that take time. the mayor here says he can do this for two or three months but not much more. he's worried about more caravans that are on the way that will start later this week and next week. i asked what solves this? here's what he had to say. >> it would be better if democrats and republicans, the us government and mexican government and honduran government, everybody worked together to put on the table something that will resolve this. that would be much better. >> reporter: border patrol officials on the other side
2:08 am
continuing to do preparations, training exercises, they are doing a show of force but we got a rare visit, tom came to work with his counterpart and wanted to find out what is in this caravan. listen. >> every time, you have a criminal element in the group trying to cross the river. we are getting ready for that. >> reporter: meanwhile, some of those 12,600 migrants that got their official temporary asylum are on their way north. officials worry they will come here and add to this crowd of 2000. rob: our next guest has seen the immigration crisis firsthand in texas. jillian: joining us to react to the immigration message is congressman michael burgess, appreciate you being here. the president not wavering on
2:09 am
his message. what do you make of what he had to say last night? >> i thought the president did a great job, wonderful job in the chamber. it is tough to get up in front of congress, both houses, the joint chiefs, the supreme court, diplomatic or, a lot of trappings that go along with it. the president rose to the moment and delivered a pretty powerful challenge to all of us, asking us, now is the time to soar, to achieve new heights on the border. maybe i didn't expect he was going to come forward with an emergency plan that would fund the barriers he talked about for so long. it is premature because the conference committee is still here, less than two weeks to come up with something but i have to believe the president made preparations and will deliver, he put his hand up and said he would complete the
2:10 am
process of providing a barrier at the southern border that was promised some years ago. rob: barriers, they are bending a little bit. in this negotiation and on this topic, conflating the idea into this country with illegal immigration, they don't even like to say illegal, they like to say immigrants, when republicans are talking about illegal immigration. >> the people who feel they have to leave where they live for a better life, i get it. something that sets us apart from where they are is the belief in rule of law. if you say your laws don't matter and we will do what we want they are likely to come into the same problem they left. the reason they are coming here because of the respectful rule of law, because of the fact
2:11 am
there is opportunity in america we shouldn't do anything that destroys that, the process of bringing them here. several times at the border, in central america, that is a dangerous trip people are tasked to make and it is not humane to stand by and encourage more of that behavior particularly when it involves young children but it is not the right thing to do. heather: listen to what the president said last night, it has the us being in a corner of energy. >> we have unleashed a revolution in american energy. the united states is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. for the first time in 65 years we are a net exporter of energy.
2:12 am
jillian: you serve on the house energy and commerce committee, what did you think of what he said? >> a great day for this country to stand up and say that but i remember democrats talking in 2006, and 2007, decrying the fact that america used to be the major exporter of energy and now we are the number one importer of energy around the world and in 10 years the situation has changed. summer of 2007, for dollar, $5 gasoline prices, one of the things that upset the economy. it is a good day. american energy is number one in the world, number one producer, net exporter of energy, that is on the plus side. rob: thank you for your time. 12 minutes after the hour, donald trump praising america's progress in defeating threats
2:13 am
abroad, but what about domestic? jillian: no gang member in the country illegally target with murder. our next guest calls this a national emergency, we are coming right back.
2:14 am
i was on the fence about changing from a manual to an electric toothbrush. but my hygienist said going electric could lead to way cleaner teeth. she said, get the one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's gentle rounded brush head removes more plaque along the gum line. for cleaner teeth and healthier gums. and unlike sonicare, oral-b is the first electric toothbrush brand accepted by the ada for its effectiveness and safety.
2:15 am
what an amazing clean! i'll only use an oral-b! oral-b. brush like a pro. minimums and fees seem to your typical bank.n of capital one is anything but typical. that's why we designed savings and checking accounts
2:16 am
with no fees or minimums. this is banking reimagined. what's in your wallet? >> today we have liberated virtually all of the territory from the grip of these bloodthirsty monsters. time to give our brave warriors in syria a warm welcome home. jillian: the president praising the military for progress in the war on terror in defeating isis as the administration ways a possible troop withdrawal in syria and afghanistan. rob: here to react to the president's address, former u.s. army intelligence officer brett fell a covert -- when it comes to what to do in the middle east, the president is in the
2:17 am
minority here. what do you think of his plan? >> it is interesting especially after relating to his foreign policy towards isis. he is right to say our regional allies need to step up their game. our soldiers fought long and hard, we spent trillions of dollars, lost thousands of lives and he's right when he says people in the region need to step up their game. when donald trump took office, 20,000 mi. of terrain between iraq and syria that ice is controlled, they have largely been defeated and leading into the speech, a lot of people assume there would be a different deal, he was wavering a bit on the syria pool out he has been talking about, he did it, he stood strong and people need to understand just because we are pulling troops out of syria does not mean counterterrorism operations stopped and he touched on that in the speech last night. we have the billy to break the sovereignty of syria at any
2:18 am
point because we have guys in iraq and the kurdistan region operating with the kurds and the airbase which is like if we need to conduct airstrike operations. as it relates to iraq, not the same thing as the iraq scenario where we wipes our hands clean. we need to conduct counterterrorism operations against iraq and have people in place to destroy the remnants of ice is going forward. jillian: is another summit coming up, the president said the 20th in vietnam, some people argue there has been progress in north korea because they haven't launched any missiles. the other argument is there is proof they are still building over there. what do you make of what is going on in north korea? >> there's a long road ahead but look how far we have come.
2:19 am
the fact is donald trump focused on the piece and stability of the reason, hostages returned home, nuclear tests halted, haven't had a missile shot off in 15 months. i think just going to this meeting in vietnam in february the president has to work with kim to refine the timetable and get an understanding of what the arsenal looks like so our intelligence personnel can compare that but we have come a long way. the north korean regime once two things, regime preservation and economic modernization. they don't need to be convinced of the economic modernization part, that's why they created the nuclear arsenal in the first place. when you look at the rhetoric that has taken place, a simple negotiation. donald trump, for all this to work, has to convince kim jong
2:20 am
un that he can give up his nuclear arsenal but preserve his regime in the process and that matters here. rob: we should say there is no evidence that they want to do any of that. let's talk about ms 13, the president vowed to never abolish ice, some people running for president said that's what they want to do. >> the threat is still real with ms 13. we saw a shooting in the subway. this is a national emergency, threat that goes hand in hand with border security and when you look at ice, a law enforcement organization, they've taken flak across the board. more than any law enforcement organizations and we for doing their job. you see an organization like ms 13 operating and you hear about these ice arrests where they arrested a lot of illegal immigrants it is more important than ever to get a handle on it.
2:21 am

2:32 am
florida. before we ask about the state of the union, what makes this play so special, 55 community for retired military. thank you all for your service. the state of the union, we begin with you, what did you think of it? >> i thought it was one of the best speeches trump has made. i liked when he said -- peace and legislation, no war and investigation but nothing will happen unless congress and act these laws, that is the important part. >> reporter: thank you. what about you? i guess your name is gary based on the name tag. >> pretty good guess. i thought the speech was very good. he made a serious attempt to bring the country together and bring congress together. i really liked the guest he had, the way he interfaced with them, very personal.

2:36 am
>> i thought it was a psychotically incoherent speech with cookies and dog poop. >> restrung right-wing stuff. there were moments of whiplash. >> the president at this moment did not mention climate change and even a sentence is frankly a disgrace. >> he represented someone with no attachment to anything he says. >> stacy abrams, a candidate in the state of georgia. >> everything else he said will be overshadowed by the fact he said there cannot be investigations. rob: we are not surprised the media is not crazy about the president. here to weigh in is the founder of turning point usa. what do you think? >> totally overreacting. they could have written response to the speech before he gave the speech, working on the talking point before they knew what he would talk about. what bothers me is van jones who advocated for the president's
2:37 am
prison reform bill. he was in the white house working for an admirable cause and to instantaneously come with that response shows the entire left cares or about political power than making america better and stronger and the results are indisputable. you saw people in the audience woven into the narrative of how america is a better place, stronger place today before donald trump became president and the media, so focused on trying to destroy this president and happy the president had an uninterrupted time to lay out. >> the right form to bring up investigations. >> i don't mind the way he did it.
2:38 am
here's the thing. look at his perspective, the president lays out amazing accomplishments for the betterment of the american people, record blow black unemployment and latino unemployment, something the president should talk about even more and what has he met with? he's not met with at least applause from democrat to say they support the community but with contempt and anger from them and silly investigations going after his family, going after his personal life, no accountability for robert mueller. my opinion, i appreciated it. remember what he said before that, reckless or senseless wars which is something democrats oppose and they want to oppose anything donald trump supports which they support ending reckless wars. rob: there is a lot of obstruction.

2:45 am
we have a problem with china, cultural change. we put in place mechanisms that require balance change which is a negotiating point to reduce the trade deficit of $250 billion. there are ways of getting this done. i have known him for 20 or 30 years, a very talented man who understands the nature of the problem. negotiations are always veiled. jillian: stacy abrams had words for the president and her rebuttal last night. >> salary truly equaled economic security. instead families hopes are being crushed by republican leadership that ignores real-life or doesn't understand it.

jillian: donald trump highlighting the crisis at the border in his state of the union speech. rob: chip roy brought brandon judd as his guest to the address and they join us now, thanks for coming on, the president stuck it to the democrats say you guys voted for barriers in the past, you know they work, cut the nonsense. >> i was delighted to have brandon with me as a representative of the wonderful men and women who protect the border every day, the president was 100% correct in focusing on the need to secure the border. in the rio grande valley last week, my friend dan crenshaw, we have a daily caravan, 430 people across the border each year, we will only apprehend 200,000 because we don't have the resources given to border patrol they need. 90% are captured and released. the cartels have operational
2:52 am
control of the border, using people as human shields to move across, using little girls to get sold into sex trade and this is what democrats are defending in the name of compassion. the president was 100% right about fences, they work and we need to get busy securing the border and hope the president continues to hold that line. jillian: stacy abrams mentioned the administration putting people in cages yet we know this to be true of the obama administration as well because of photos that came out a couple months ago were from the obama administration. where is this messy getting lost in translation? >> when we are dealing with politics, if we were honest, we will say what happened in the obama administration, putting the unaccompanied minors in detention facilities it was worse than it is today. we have been given a lot more resources than we had in the obama administration.
2:53 am
our agents themselves were bringing in formula, toys, the administration wasn't providing what we needed to take care of these children so when you look at that if we are honest with ourselves, we are in a better situation than we were under the obama administration unless we play politics. rob: the president pointed out hypocrisy of democrats voting for barriers in the past but also politicians in general living far away from the problems created by this situation. >> no issue better illustrates the divide between america's working-class and political class than illegal immigration. wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls
2:54 am
and gates and guards. rob: what did you think of that line? >> i loved that line, nothing better illustrates hypocrisy of the left than living in ivory towers wanting to pat themselves on the back for opening borders windows open borders, the 10-year-old or 11-year-old girl i saw friday who came across the border and came from honduras endangering their lives and might get sold into sex trade, 54 people in a stash house in houston having to pay their debts back to the cartel, making $130 million on the backs of human trafficking. it is unconscionable in these democrats want to pat themselves on the back for being compassionate and it is wrong, the president is trying to do what is right for the united states and the migrants. >> i love that he painted a picture for the american public. when he says these will be congressman are living behind
2:55 am
these walls and gates themselves he painted that picture for the american public to see and again this was going out to everybody, this wasn't just a small segment of people on one network, this was to everybody. he was able to make the case to the vast majority and if you look at the ratings of the state of the union last night, across the board it was received very well because he was able to make the case to everybody. >> 90% of the traffic in the rio grande valley coming through the western sector where we have fewer fences and fewer physical barriers we do have fences, less traffic. rob: the number dropped 90%. a great show last night, appreciate the time. 55 after the hour. we want to know your thoughts on the president's peace. jillian: your comments are pouring in and we will read them next.
