for some celebrities to take shot at the president. "fox & friends first" starts right now. ♪ ♪ heather: good morning, it is a beautiful day because you're waking up after all, that's a good way to start. you're watching "fox & friends first" on monday morning, brand-new week, i'm health ir childers, thank you as always for starting your day and week was. days of war, another possible government shutdown, white house indicating all options are on the table, griff jenkins live in washington with the very latest, good morning to you, griff, glad
you woke up this morning. >> i woke up to sleet. the democrats want to cap cutting beds from roughly 40,000 to 35,000. republicans want to increase the number by 12,000, president trump weighing in on twitter yesterday. the border committee democrats are behaving all of a sudden irrationally, they have recommendations of border patrol expert, they don't want to take murderers into custody, what's going on, this as the deadline for government shutdown is this friday and the white house is not backing down. >> i'm not in a position to say the president will absolutely sign or will not sign, some things that we simply couldn't agree to so the government shutdown is technically still on the table. we do not want it to come to that but the option still open to the president.
>> now, there's optimism of a deal, john tester said they just have to stay focused. >> almost every negotiation out there gets bumps on the road but as long as we stay focused in a bipartisan way to get this done i'm hopeful we can get this done. >> now the president travels to el paso for a rally, look at the number of apprehensions of family units in el paso sector alone, soared more than 1500% from 1,523 in january, 2018 to 25,210 so far this year, i suspect we will hear more about that tonight, heather. heather: yeah, absolutely. griff jenkins live for us, thanks griff as always. beto o'rourke is also in el paso for a dueling rally against the president. >> we will meet live and hate with the true and vision for the

bill that reduces the number of bed spaces available to hold violent offenders, what kind of a trade-off is that? i would advice the president to take near 2 billion for the wall, sign a bill that would give you that much money as a down payment and find the rest of the money on your own, declare national emergency if necessary. i don't expect him to do that deal if you have to trade off bed spaces because that is incentivizing more illegal immigration by reducing bed spaces, it's really making the country far less safe. heather: laura ingraham will talk exclusively with president trump about the border standoff following el paso rally, tonight at 10:00 p.m. in the ingraham angle. jam-packed field of democrats running for president got even more crowded over the weekend, todd piro on the 2020 hopefuls.

[cheers and applause] >> i have family, i have friends, i have maybes and i have all of you. >> all this comes amid report that klobuchar had such a bad wreck over treatment of staff that a number of potential staffers withdrew from consideration to manage her campaign, in response klobuchar told reporters, yes, i can be
tough and push people, i have high expectations for myself and high expectations for the people that work for me but i have high expectations for this country. klobuchar not the only one trying to rally support, cory booker, crises crossed iowa for first time as presidential candidate this weekend promising to pull a divided nation back together instead of negative rhetoric, missing opportunity gabbart canceled over travel politiccations. heather: keeps on growing every day. thank you so much, todd. >> no problem. heather: one hopeful is slamming president trump suggesting that he might be in jail by the next election. >> by the time we hit 2020, donald trump may not be president. in fact, he may not even be a free person.

increase of 84% in terms of apprehensions tat border. >> it's a human tsunami, that's what we catch, god knows what we didn't catch. we are fascinating the numbers caught how about those that escape. heather: something else that you pointed out to me that america actually does provide more than 1 million illegal immigrants with lawful immigration status every year. >> lawful immigrants. we admit green cards to a million plus lawful immigrants, these are aliens who come legally, they are given green card and placed on pathway to the united states citizenship, more than rest of the world combined. we naturalized hundreds of thousands of new citizens every year more than the rest of the world combined. we spent 14 billion approximately on customs and border protection to conduct inspections at ports of entry and prevent unexpected entry of people and cargo. heather: so it's not about not allowing people to come into the united states --
>> correct. heather: we can't repeat this enough because you don't often hear from mainstream media, it's just about people who are trying to break the law and come here illegally. >> and enter without inspection, nonsense they entered undocumented, listen, a bank robber doesn't make undocumented withdrawal, the point of the matter is the wall would not prevent anybody from entering just require anybody to be inspected, vetted, this is common sense, this was what 9/11 commission talked about. heather: tell us about that. >> immigration and border security was identified by 9/11 as key issues where we aretist attacks were concerned. not just mexican border, visa proteses, incredibly you have democrat party saying let's get rid of it altogether.
we can't arrest only those with criminal history. we have to have integrity to the immigration system, i can't understand how democrats are looking to america -- heather: i want to talk about el paso, you have been to el paso, the president going there tonight. beto o'rourke and his group, not a problem there, the president saying that it is. >> absolutely a problem. el chapo guzmán is on trial and the jury is deliberating case, one of the issues is how there were safe houses on both sides of the border where drugs and weapons were being smuggled into the united states. in el paso. cuidad juárez is one of the most violent in méxico, from my hotel i can see police cars going responding to murder. heather: the only two things

heather: welcome back, look a top headlines this morning for you, president trump heading to el paso, texas for make america great again rally. he will be met with some opposition, though, presidential 2020 candidate beto o'rourke will also be in el paso for a dueling rally against the president's border wall. and just a few days before another possible government shutdown, border security talks appear to have hit a snag, key democrats and republicans acknowledging that negotiations are stalled with democrats
demanding wall money be withheld until republicans agree to cut funds for ice. democratic virginia delegate is expected to start impeachment process today against lieutenant governor justin fairfax, accused of sexually assaulting two women, he has called on fbi to investigate the claims, meanwhile ralph northam refuses to resign over black-face scandal. well, the wave of political scandals among virginia's top democrats are putting pressure on the left to maintain the moral high ground even when it comes to scandals within their own party but with both governor and lieutenant governor, calls to step down, president trump predicts that virginia voters will turn to gop in 2020, is he right? here to debate lauren and democratic political commentator jonathan harris, thank you for joining us this morning, we appreciate it. >> good morning.
heather: jonathan, i will start with you, what do you think of virginia, let's start again generically? >> they will need to figure out a way to handle this and get out and if they can it will be long forgotten. we have to let the investigation play out. i think that's fair, with northam he should have long since resigned. i said before, that's issue on both sides. heather: lauren, what's your take on this? >> we are not the party of women or there's no space for black americans and the republican politics and have this within their own party and not even remotely, none of them are stepping down, they are sticking in and northam interview yesterday with cbs was just mind
blowing to watch that he's a doctor and so he would be able to heal this. they need to step down as quickly as possible and that would be the path that i would recommend especially if i was the 2020 candidate. heather: do you think if they do not this makes it more plausible for republicans to take virginia? >> yeah, absolutely. i don't see how virginia voters can, they would withstand this, it's mind blowing that this is happening to the democratic party party. heather: does this put democrats in danger of virginia? >> may put democrats in danger in virginia but difficult for the right to get in moral box if you don't ask trump to step down for racist comments, he has tons of sexual abuse allegations, i think you to play that equally on both sides, so if you're going to ask -- heather: fairfax from what i understand first of all is now accused of rape back
at duke university and president trump has never appeared in black face. >> right, no, i'm saying if the issue abuse allegations trump has been accused of sexual abuse and if it's racism, trump has made litany of racism right after elizabeth warren. >> i'm confused of the definition of racism. black face is absolutely in a different category than poking fun at elizabeth warren for her claims of being native american. >> is it different than saying that mexicans are murderers and rapists and criminals and a few of them are good people, that a mexican job can't do his job because he's mexican and trump wants to build the wall, racism is pretty clear and it's something that happens on both sides but if you won't call trump to step down, why are you calling -- heather: i don't believe that he was talking
about all mexicans, the majority of illegal immigrants trying to cross into the border when he made the statement? >> the thing it's still racist statement so i think that's why people question at least on the right the reaction, there are tons of stories like this that came from conservative right and no calls for people to step down, steve king questioning what's wrong with being white supremacist has not stepped down, something that happens on both sides, you have to be equal in the way you're asking to play out. >> he has been removed from committee, do i think the republican party has made strong statement with king that they will not stand for rhetoric anymore, so the democrats need to do the same thing in regards to their virginia democrats. heather: seems to be changing every day and we will certainly see what happens on the front today because as you said the interview with cbs yesterday with northam was quite something to see. we will see if that changes things, lauren, jonathan, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. heather: thousands of teachers

investigation into whether the story was politically motivated, now claim the paper's parent company american media is threatening to publish additional intimate photos unless he publicly denies the story was a political hit job. blackmail, american media says it is journalism. well, fox business for you, filing your taxes early this year is not paying off, the irs says returns are down nearly 10% in the first filing week, tracee carrasco, sister network fox business with why there's less cash to go around. great to have you back, tracee. tracee: according to early statistics refunds are down 8.4%, that's a difference of $2,035 down to 1865, difference that people are seeing in tax refund the first week that the irs has been keeping track, of

back and forth on the money for the border wall or border barrier of some or -- sort, told negotiation was 1.3 billion to 2 billion far short of what he was originally demanding, but now they are stuck again, what is going on? >> well, we met with the president last week with members of freedom caucus and one he's committed to getting the wall built, interestingly 25 billion-dollar price tag, now down to 5, as mick mulvaney said, he will get it built, drug money is one pot that the dollars can come from, but this president has bent over backward to placate the democrats and placate those who don't want the wall and open the government back up, they knew all along it was involved money, it's a
nonstarter if they don't get money for the wall. heather: only one side seems to be negotiating, you mention the 25 billion-dollar total, right now 1.3 to 2, let's take a look at what president trump tweeted on the democrats not negotiating, he said the border committee democrats are behaving all of a sudden irrationally, not only are they unwilling to give dollars for needed wall, they overwrote recommendations but they don't want to take murderers into custody, what is going on and what is he talking about there? >> well, what he's talking about is what i saw when a group of us went to the border, went to arizona and met with the agents, we talked with them and the drugs, the rainists that -- rapists that are coming across the country and not agree on something as simple like the wall, it shouldn't be point of discussion, heather, and unfortunately it is and i appreciate the president
sticking to his guns and he will get it done and the wall will be built at some point whether it's through national emergency or whether it's hopefully they'll come to the table with 17-member panel. heather: you mentioned the national emergency, thereon what hillary clinton had to say if it's national emergencies. >> i think you should call national emergencies unless it's true a national emergency. he's frustrated because he can't convince his own party to support his request. heather: you know, interesting to hear her say, no national emergency when repeatedly i myself have talked to people down there living on the border from new mexico to texas and arizona and all of them say it is a very real issue that they are living through. >> she just hasn't been to the border, what do you call caravans of thousands of people coming across the border and when you hear the agents, border
patrol agents saying -- there's not enough personnel to track them down and, you know, when we were there one jumped the fence and they went and apprehended him and comment was let a drone try to actually catch illegal alien and it's -- we were congressmen the agents have seen in 15 to 20 years, it's sad to say the least. heather: the number is not slowing down. we have estimated 5 million latin americans plan to go move to the u.s. next year, they are overwhelmed there at the border. i do want to talk you briefly about your neighbor state north carolina, local sheriffs there wanting to ice out or -- they want ice out of north carolina through series of unwanted immigration raids.
we can tell you 200 people in north carolina rounded up within the last week. >> yeah, and, you know, what's sad, heather, is for them to publicly come out and say they are not working with the ice agents, you know, they are all in this to protect the public and believe it or not coming across the border illegally is a crime, you just don't do that and i think the sheriffs are trying to placate the left-wing base and it's like you would never hear the marines say they're not going to cooperate with the army or vice versa and why they are doing this in charlotte with borders on my county that i represent is unheard of in my mind. heather: two largest counties in north carolina as you say the sheriffs campaigning on this to get elected and involve controversial 287g program to explain to people at home, local deputies would shut database on inmate to see if they're in the
country illegally and then they would be held by ice, they can be detained and begin deportation proceedings if they have some sort of criminal charge against them, correct? >> exactly. the 48 hours is just the agents that do two things, it takes time to get to a particular location because they are understaffed and secondly when you're dealing with somebody suspected of being and illegal alien, you have to try to get the documents on something they know very little about, so why they would not cooperate is again, playing politics and you shouldn't play politics with this serious of a subject and hi lights the facts that we have to do something to stop it and to get a handle on it. heather: yeah, you're not cooperating with ice in the jails, now you have ice on the streets trying to do round-ups, in the process people that don't have people with no criminal records are being round up.
thank you so much for joining us, we hope that they come to some sort of agreement before friday midnight, that's the deadline. >> i hope so, but, again, the president is sticking with it and he will get it built one way or another. heather: thank you very much. >> my pleasure. heather: 5 minutes until the top of the hour, the firefighter melting hearts everywhere, more of the adorable video going viral and taking hangry to new level, what took a woman to smash restaurant windows with a bat
heather: take a look at this, firefighters rescue dog from burning home performing cpr to save its life, california home owner thanking them. >> i'm thankful for the firemen and saving him, he's my best friend. heather: pup is doing much better, we can tell you no one else in the home was injured. now time for the good, the bad and the ugly, up first the good, california fire department welcoming newest and youngest recruit, firefighters responding to burning shed when 2-year-old jackson put his own fire fighting gear and ran out to help, the firefighters taking time to show him the ropes. heather: very good.
