3:02 am
you could have been in the background. brian: we thought we would have a deal to talk about this week. we might or we might have one that implodes. that's where we are heading. so optimistic on friday. steve: were we? brian: senator shelby and the others 17 other bicameral. bipartisan coming up with a border agreement. we thought we were focusing on the wall. instead we are focusing on beds as well. steve: that's what we said on friday beds and border security structure. they didn't even get to that what it all comes down to now is the democrats are trying to limit the number of detention beds. in other words, now, think about it if you arrest somebody, if you are ice, and you arrest somebody, if you are going to arrest somebody, you have got to have a bed for them. so really, the administration is steamed at the democrats because they are telling the administration how many people they can arrest, ice, in a year. and they want to cap it at 16,500. ainsley: what's interesting is if you look at prisons across our country, people
3:03 am
are saying we don't have enough bed. have to let people out that have the shorter offenses. here on the border we have enough beds. republicans want to pour the money out so the criminals don't come in our country. they have the beds. democrats are saying we don't care if you have too many beds. we want to limit the amount. brian: we thought we were foe kissing on they are at 1.3. this house was. the senate had 1.6 billion for the barrier. trying to see if a number between the 5.7 the president wants and the 1.3 is what nancy pelosi said. they are greg close to 2 billion and then they spring this push on ice. remember, they said they wanted to abolish ice? and they got so much backlash did the democrats and they pulled back from that? they are slowly trying to abolish ice. and they are trying to do that by diminishing their impactfulness and allowing people they would normally detain to stay in the general population. roughly 40,000 beds. they want to cut it back as
3:04 am
many as 35,000, maybe less. steve: they are trying to cap it at 16,500. the president, i am told, will not agree to limit the number of criminals that ice is allowed to arrest. if there is a shutdown, and it is a real possibility on this monday morning, there will be a shutdown because the administration will not allow the democrats to put a number on the number of people ice can arrest in any calendar year. it's not about beds. it's the number of people who can be detained. that's what it all comes down to. ainsley: it could be a shutdown on friday. steve: absolutely. ainsley: folks negotiating say it has completely broken down. border committee democrats are behaving all of a sudden irrationally. not only are they not only unwilling to give dollars for the obviouslily needed wall. they overrode the recommendations of the border patrol experts. but they don't even want to take murderers into the custody. what's going on?
3:05 am
brian: a march showing duly very popular people in texas. the president and broker. ainsley: they are upset with him saying at the state of the union the wall works in el paso. brian: which it did. steve: we had the acting chief of staff mick mulvaney sir late yesterdasigh r. circule government still might shut down. nonetheless, he is emphatic. that wall is going to get built. >> our attitude at this point is we will take as much money as can you give us and we will go off and find the money some place else legally in order to secure that southern barrier. this is going to get built with or without congress. >> is the national emergency, declaring an national emergency still on the table. >> absolutely still on the table. this is not the precedent. this is the law. certain things every president must do in order to trigger the rights that he has to sort of move money around. brian: he might be able to get some other money from
3:06 am
something else to get it there. ainsley: instead of pulling the emergency switch. the president said this is what the democrats want. they have want to take the focus and distract what's happening in virginia. they would love another shutdown so it makes him look bad and he is saying that many people in the democratic party really want to knowing united states and they want something done but he feels like the leaders in the democratic party are stopping it. brian: something happened. senator mike lee came out over the weekend and said i talked to the president and he essentially said i take 2 billion. you get me 2 billion. i'm all right. keep in mind. between all the regulations and all the forms and getting everybody up to speed, they are just starting on the 2017 money now. so they get about 50 miles out of that you get 2 billion. there is seven months left in the fiscal year then you get another 2 billion. next thing you know you are getting close to halfway done knowing there is only a finite amount of people to build the barrier. steve: 2 billion figure is one that's floating around. i heard they are not even close to 3 billion. apparently the talks have broken down. there is no suggestion when
3:07 am
they are going to start again. as to an agreement regarding the amount of money that would build a fence or a wall or barrier they didn't even take that up. this number of ice detention beds is a nonstarter. ainsley: seems like a tactic doesn't it. brian: i can't believe the democrats would give up their ability to govern to nancy pelosi. i mean, clearly she is pulling the strings. she is making senator schumer look like a shoulder for her. all these other people in negotiations and tim ryan was actually talking, twhi maria over the weekend. he had no idea that there was even an issue with bids at the border. where did this come from? where did that come from. ainsley: a lot of republicans felt that over the weekend. another stall tactic. something else to bring up. california very progressive state as you know. gavin newsom is the new governor there climate change, income inequality. you knower with stands. he accident like all the troops on the border. he is saying that he possibly might pull 400 troops that rah signed to duties there on the southern border of california.
3:08 am
steve: well, is he expected to do it. keep in mind it was last year that jerry brown the previous governor, went along with the administration, the trump administration, and installed 400 to our southern border. now newsome is going to pull them and assign them to other things, unclear if the federal financing for the troops will continue if they are redirected. but, right now they are currently being paid by the federal government. it looks like about 100 are going to go help fire suppression efforts, another couple hundred would go towards antidrug enforcement. brian: that's what you vote for, california. new mexico always feels very similar to the president's push for borders. so we wil -- border security. people get a vote? i wonder if the people in san diego border communities. steve: it's a sanctuary state. they get to vote on it every time they go to the ballot. brian: residents of san
3:09 am
diego i imagine don't feel too amenable to the lack of security. steve: something in southern california as well is los angeles at the staples center last night they had the big grammy awards. and there was a surprise towards the beginning of the show. yes, indeed, that is former first lady michelle obama. she appeared during the opening with issue wil alicia ka jada. talking about the effect music had on their lives. ♪ ♪ >> from the motown records i wore out on the south side to the who run the world songs that fueled me through this last decade. music has always helped me tell my story. music shows us that all of it matters, every story within every voice, every note within every song. is that right, ladies? >> yes.
3:10 am
>> yes. >> yes, michelle. >> yes, it is. brian: michelle obama got a huge applause. for 15 or 20 seconds couldn't get through it a tribute to her. her book is also number one. leaving a lot of people including the drudge report is she getting set to run? although she has been very emphatic. jo like politics. my husband dragged me into this. i am not running. she is still somebody still extremely popular. steve: last night was not very political. however, if you were watching the opening act, which was gigantic. a huge set. about 100 people running all over the stage. there was a guy. ainsley: rick j martin to the left and the singer. >> sitting right there on a bench or just a chair a guy holding the newspaper that says build bridges, not walls. speaking of build the wall, joy villa, remember, she is the one who had the make america great dress
3:11 am
previously. last night she wore the build the wall dress. ainsley: she made her annual statement there on the red carpet. that's what the back looked like. build the wall. if you look closely on the shoulder pads on top of her shoulders she had barbed wire. build the wall dress with her maga make america great again purse. it's not about race. it's about protecting people. women are being sexually assaulted. thousands of children are being exploited. 70% of heroin is brought in through mexico. that's why she wants the wall. >> she was not the only one with a maga message. had you singer ricki rebel wore a keep america great again jacket as you can see right there. he has been an active supporter of president trump. although he has faced considerable backlash according to variety especially considering that he has been an add advisor voyeur cat for lbgt rights. brian: demonstration with socialism or green new deal. i didn't see any. too bad. ainsley: they ran some skits

3:19 am
what do we need to know about her? >> well, first of all, she began describing herself as a native american at the age of 35. she began checking the box. she was a teaching assistant, teaching instructor at second tier law school in texas. when she began checking the box. suddenly she is tenured law professor, first at the university of pennsylvania and then at harvard university. and then after she completed her mediocre rise to the top, she decided to rejoin the white race. steve: howie, she has said, she has made it very clear over the last 10 days, look, i never did that to advance my career or anything like that. that's what she claims but it doesn't bear up under scrutiny. it's pretty clear that has been doing this for a number of years. you talk about the rigged system, steve. as a harvard professor, she was able to buy
3:20 am
2-million-dollar mansion in cambridge with an interest-free loan from harvard university. now that seems kind of rigged to me. and she also talked about the expensive cost of hire highr education. this a woman who taught one course at harvard law school for $350,000 a year. so she is worth upwards of $10 million. now. and, you know, it's just amazing that she is -- that she can go out there and make she's statements, talk about hypocrisy. apparently it's true that you know, there is going to be more opposition research coming out on her. this one in texas is not the end. steve: i will tell you what, her rollout has been a disaster over the last couple weeks. howie carr joins us today from boston. thank you very much. his new book "kennedy

these horrible charges against fairfax are true he needs to go as well. ainsley: let's go back to what do you call it the way back machine. steve: the way back machine. ainsley: he said on cbs that virginia needs someone that has empathy and a moral compass. is this empathy and moral compass? listen to this. if a mother is in labor can i tell you what would happen. the infant would be delivered. the infant would be kept comfortable. the infant would be reiss success at a timed if that's what the mother and the family's desired and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. steve: so those are his comments the week before the blackface story emerged. and, yet, i think maybe a quarter of the media outlets are talking about that story where he talks about well, first the baby would be delivered and then the mom and the doctor would have a conversation about what to do with the baby. amazing.
3:27 am
>> yeah. yeah, steve, you know, the cardinal sin northam made according to the democrats, not according to us who advocate for life throughout is northam was honest about what late-term abortion really looks like. and the image he painted was so devastating that a lot of these media activists who don't want to tell the truth about what late-term abortion really is found this to be absolutely devastating. i want -- i want to ask this question, it's serious. i get that a lot of proabortion activists are turned off by it but it's a serious question now that the window has been moved significantly by the radical left. how many breaths do you have to take now before you are safe from thought deadly legislative pen from some on the left? how many? how many days do you have to be alive now before you are safe from these people on the left who have moved the window into now a conversation about what northam spoke about which is unquestionable infanticide. steve: it used to be the conversation was at what point does life begin?
3:28 am
how do you define a life? what is he explaining is the baby is born and then after the baby is born, then you figure out what to do. >> steve, the conversation once was about safe, legal and rare referencing abortion. because i think democrats understood being proabortion was never going to fly in mainstream america. that's now completely gone. we have a law up in new york that i saw a poll. even 44% of pro-choice individuals don't like the new late-term abortion law up in new york. this is not in any way a mainstream position. brian: right. just real quick. on these what adam schiff said yesterday. we don't have much time. he said yesterday is he going back into president trump's business career to look for anything that might affect any decisions he would makes a president. since when? this is not benghazi or white water. those are incidents that they wanted to investigate. they are having just a wide
3:29 am
swath look at a 50 year business career. how is that acceptable? >> well, it's accept to be adam schiff because he is the sleazy es member of congress. is he a discredited third rate conspiracy theirist who has absolutely zero credibility and the difference between the investigations under president obama is benghazi had evidence. there were four body bags. theist actually admitted to targeting citizens. the targeting of james rosen and others actually happened. we have the legal documents. adam schiff is inventing crimes. he has no evidence. brian: unenable. h>> he is sleazy. that's what he does. ainsley: vows to investigate as long as it takes. steve: elections have consequences he says. dan, have great week. >> thanks, guys good to see you. ainsley: good to see you too. president trump heading to the border as lawmakers battle out a deal in washington. next guest's daughter was killed by illegal

3:35 am
felony. in 2018 he was arrested for aggravated assault and put in jail. they released him on bond without notifying ice. thus, he went and had a drinking spree. he ran two red lights and killed my daughter as she was crossing the street in a crosswalk. brian: he kept driving, didn't he? >> he kept driving. he dumped the vehicle. he threw the beer out the window. he lied to the police saying that the vehicle was stolen, and that he tried to get his father to tell the police that the vehicle was stolen. they later convinced him and he told the truth that he was driving the vehicle after he had five or six beers. ainsley: dan, you have a lot of democrats mad at the president because they said at the state of the union that he wasn't truthful what was going on down there in el paso. he said the wall has made el paso safer. i know you have been a 45-year resident of that area. what are your thoughts about that. >> i have lived here for about 45, 50 years. and the wall is a great
3:36 am
deterrent to illegal immigration. before the wall there was a guy named sylvester ray yes, sir. he placed border patrol agents every 100 yards. before hold the line, el paso was a dangerous place because i was raised here. we had about 50 cars stolen every week. close to 500 a month taken down into what is to chop shops. mr. were gangs in the school and drugs flowing across. i remember doing my student teaching on the playground as a p.e. coach. i saw two agents chase down three illegal immigrants on the play ground and tackle them. this is back before hold the line and back before the wall. steve: got to be so frustrating for you, heart breaking for you because this man was in the country illegally. but, at the same time, he was arrested after he was deported and had he been turned over to ice. this may never have happened to your family. what are you going to tell the president tonight because is he going to pull you aside. you are going to have a conversation.
3:37 am
>> i hope. so i would like to do a shoutout to president trump i'm 100 percent behind him on his deal on the wall in securing the border. he also needs to look at cutting off all the money for sanctuary cities. because all that does is let these illegal aliens back into our society to commit more crimes. and i know president trump has looked into the eyes of angel dads and angel moms like me. he knows the pain. he knows the hurt that we have been gone through. he knows the suffering that is being caused to the american citizens. my question for the house and congress is, you know, my daughter was hit and she was so badly hurt that they wouldn't even let my wife and i identify the body. her legs were broken in 8 different places. she had five skull fractures. she had 10 broken ribs and a picturepuck punctured lung. she died at the scene. that's something i have to live with and my family has to live with every day. if ms. pelosi and mr. schumer's daughter or
3:38 am
son were hit and killed by illegal alien. i guarantee you fund would go have been there months ago for this wall and security for our border. brian: beto o'rourke doesn't see it that way. he is having a rival rally and a march. >> yeah. beto, you know, it's funny because he is representative of the el paso area. he has yet talked or called out to me, ms. escobar has yet called out to me. they don't mention anything about the protection of the american citizens here but they advocates the rights of all these illegal aliens. ainsley: dan, you told our producers amanda was a 28-year-old teacher, a wife. my world, and a baby girl thaglue that held our family together. i'm sorry you are going through. this god bless you. >> god bless you very much. thank you very much. i appreciate you having me on. steve: thank you, sir. brian: dan ferguson, missouri will be there with the president tonight. hey, jillian. jillian: following a story out of missouri. get you caught up with this.

3:47 am
company on the fox business network stuart varney. >> the lessons they could learn should they wish to learn it is that if you want to grow your state's economy and you want to keep high income earners in your state, you cut taxes. that is a lesson which democrats are extremely unwilling to make and to learn. asa hutchison, in arkansas, looks at his immediate neighbors and sees that they have got lower tax rates than in the state of arkansas. sometimes people will move from arkansas across the state line to take advantage of lower taxes. what does he do? he lowers taxes in his state. keeps people in, grows his economy. now, this is a message. it's a debate going on nationwide at the moment. because in high tax states, new jersey, new york, california, we have been through this before. steve: right. >> taxpayers, despite tax reform, are going to end up paying a lot more in tax and getting far lower refunds.

brian: how would this work? if they don't come to an agreement. does ice get starvesd any way because no new money comes in. >> there -- they are so far to the left. they ought to just go home at this point. there is going to be no agreement. i think the president, i think he will either shut it down. is he going to declare an emergency because he knows what's going on. i have spoken to him. this is a nonstarter. i mean, i don't think if one republican on this committee agrees to this they ought to be fired. in 34 years i have done this job this is the worse by far that the democrats ever put on the table to stop enforce immigration law. one of the democrats last night said ice has to stop arresting law abiding immigrants and concentrate on criminals. first of all ice don't arrest law abiding immigrants. we arrest people here illegally. look at what ice did. they arrest our criminals. you can't incarcerate jails.
4:36 am
sanctuary cities. it's ridiculous what's going on. steve: unclear when the talks are going to resume. apparently they haven't even figured out what the number for the wall would be. so stay tuned with that meanwhile, tom, the guy who runs the gallup poll jim clifton has a quote out there that got us to scratching our heads. says 42 million asylum are watching to determine when and how is the best time to make the move. this suggests that open borders could potentially attract 42 million latin americans. 5 million planning to move in the next 12 months say they are moving to the united states. that's a wake-up call. >> why wouldn't they? if there is no consequence or deterrence, criminal organization cartels are getting fat with money. the democrats are helping them. they don't need a p.r. campaign. they have the democrats doing it for them. when you can't detain somebody and you can't, you know, hold somebody to see a judge why not? i mean, there is no
4:37 am
consequence. that's why this president is trying to end it. he is trying to control the border. brian: getting push back everywhere whether trying to end sanctuary cities or build a border. incredible. politico had this story. the border patrol is in a recruiting crisis right now. is it a worry of yours that will be an ice crisis soon, too. >> ice has never had much recruiting because i hire a lot of border patrol agents. i think the border patrol, the problem is, these men and women put their lives on the line every day. they see half a congress that don't support them, you know, when you hear the talk that democrats are doing right now, it's hard to go to work every day and put your life on the line knowing that the democrats don't think illegal immigration is a problem. they said yesterday that concentrate on criminals those entering the country i will lylely ice shouldn't look for them. got to be frustrating for the men and women. they put their lives on the line every day. it's got to be a morale buster after a while.
4:38 am
ainsley: is it frustrating for you though to know the republicans had a chance they were leaders of the house and the senate and republican president why didn't anything get done then? >> well, first of all they never had the 60 votes. they are not going to get -- so far to the left. but it's frustrating to me as i sit there. my last nine years in the agency, i dealt with congressional appropriate yarts, i know the games they play. so, obviously when they put this on narp week they forgot about me. i'm not going to shut up. when i look at what they put on paper even ice says oh my god i have never seen this so far to the left. they are pulling the curtain back and i think it's going to hurt them in the long run. america is not going to put up with this. steve: the president has made it very clear with his twitter machine, he has been telling everybody what they're up. to say let's see what happens regarding some sort of an agreement. >> we got the best president. we have the right president at the right time. he has done more in two years than most presidents has done in 8. i got full faith in him. is he not going to give into this. he won't give into this.

4:47 am
vaccines i needed. i went interest from there and it blew up. steve: didn't you get advice from a nurse who told what you to get and then because you were 18 you went and got the shots, right? >> yeah. so i went to the public health department at n. my local town and i spoke to some of the people there. and they were very kind and they gave me information. i spoke to a family physician and from then on i went and made an appointment and a few months later i had about five vaccines i have more coming this month. ainsley: what did your mom say? did you try to convince her. you told our producers there was misinformation out there and that's what made you want to become vaccinated. what did your mom say? >> yeah. we had spoken a couple times in the past. and she would speak very vocally again about how vaccines cause autism and they cause brain damage and that misinformation isn't out of malice. people that have that opinion don't mean to spread that misinformation to hinder people's health it's to protect people.
4:48 am
we had conversations about that. and i tried to give her as much evidence as i had. and had hasn't gotten across yet but i'm hoping eventually it does. steve: the worry, ethan, is you have three younger siblings. >> i do. steve: your 16-year-old sibling wants to be like you and wants to get the shots. but, your mother is not allowing that at this point, right? >> that is correct. >> so what's going to happen? >> well, as of right now, because legally he needs the consent of my mother to receive those vaccinations is he planning to pursue that once he turns 18 like i did. ainsley: how are things. you know your momma loves you and like you said it's not out of malice. how are things with your mom now. >> they are actually great. we have had multiple discussions as this news cycle has progressed and we have spoken about my views and her views and how i still love her despite disagreeing with her even publicly. this issue is more important than accidentally hurting someone's feelings for just disagreeing with them. you know, and reaffirming

alessandro talk about this more. first off, isn't it a no-brainer if somebody is in ms-13 and has pa charge they would be tossed out? >> definitely a no-brainer, brian. this policy of sanctuary cities is definitely hurting our community. i live in queens where the attack took place. affected my family. we don't walk on the streets. people like this shouldn't be allowed to walk in the streets. brian: manny, i.c.e. knew about i am, new york city knew about him, they were not coordinating with each other. why? >> new york city has a sanctuary city policy makes it difficult for i.c.e. to cooperate with nypd. there is lack of cooperation with pressure from the may. brian: this new congresswoman, the ms-13 guy perpetuated the crime and with this mayor? >> absolutely aoc, mayor de blasio, governor cuomo are calling for i.c.e. to be abolished this is crazy. governor cuomo called i.c.e.

republic and then we can worry about people coming to this country legally. brian: manny, she seems to miss that there was a crime on a platform in district she is from, she is more concerned with illegal's rights. >> absolutely. her comments are reprehensible. i think it is reckless. we need to support i.c.e. we need to support trump. we need to support initiatives to make new york city safer. residents in queens are in middle of a war between ms-13 and 18th street gangs. that is dangerous. i want to make sure it stops. brian: can cops stop it? does nypd need i.c.e.'s help? >> definitely. they have to work with agencies in charge of this kind of behavior. they can help us out in new york city to get rid of these illegal immigrants so we can walk the streets safely. brian: thank you very. much. coming up ahead, new york and virginia sparking heated debate easing restrictions on late-term abortion. three abortion survivors are here to share their personal

saving you time, so you can keep saving the world. >> kids: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace ♪ ♪ melissa: controversial legislation to ease restrictions on late-term abortions. center of fierce nationwide debate. allowing abortions up until the baby as you dues bait. the legal lines continue to blur. i'm joined by three abortion survivors, here to share their amazing, incredible personal stories. we have melissa odin on the end. founders of abortion survivors network. josiah and claire sitting next to me. we've been talking during the commercial break.
5:33 am
their stories are pham nollnal. tell us what happened. how you found out about your life story? >> i was 14 when i found out my story. i'm adopted. have been blessed with an amazing family. knew i had been born prematurely. here i was born 14 years old, to have my own adoptive mother, tell me, you survived an abortion. it was absolutely devastating. ainsley: you found your mom later? >>s it has been a lifelong journey. >> i didn't find her until i was almost 30. ainsley: she didn't know you survived. >> she didn't. ainsley: how is that possible? >> she was told that day, it's a monster, don't look at it. don't look at it. she didn't know if it was a little boy or girl in the final step of saline abortion. i have been blessed to be united with her. we first started communicating six years ago. she is one of the greatest supports alongside my family. ainsley: wow that is incredible.
5:34 am
josiah, tell us your story. >> i was adopted from south korea into a family of 12 kids. when i was 13, my adoptive parents told me how my birth mother had a a curetage abortion. that is the type of abortion where the doctor goes into the mother's womb and ripping the baby apart and brings them out in pieces. that is why i'm probably missing an arm today. she had procedure at two months. realized that i was still alive the abortion failed. at that point i was born later on october 7th, 1995. placed with an adoption agency and lived in adoption home a year before i came over to the states to live with the family i grew up. ainsley: your mother had an abortion. you survived. how is that possible. >> my birth mother was 13 years old she found out she was pregnant with my. she was in 8th grade. her mother said she was not
5:35 am
ready to be a mother. she took her to a local abortion clinic. she had a dnc surgical late-term abortion five months along in her pregnancy. they told her, her life would go back to normal. few weeks went by, things were not back to normal. they told her her abortion had been successful, but she was still pregnant, one of twins, that she didn't know she was pregnant with had survived. she actually sought out a second late-term abortion in kansas. because of the risk of infection. they were not able to do that. so i was born six weeks later. ainsley: you also have met your biological mother? >> i did. i actually didn't find this out until i met my biological mother. i had a lot of physical complications growing up. i was in body casts for two years because i had dislocated hips and clubbed feet mr. the abortion procedure. we didn't know why. until i met my birth mother and found out about her abortion.
5:36 am
ainsley: i want to play a sound bite. you probably all heard it, the governor of virginia. listen to this. >> if a mother is in labor i can tell you exactly what would happen. the infant would be delivered. the infant would be kept comfortable. the infant would be re sus stated if that is what the mother and the families desired. then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mothers. ainsley: josiah in your mother lived in virginia and you were born, she didn't want you, she tried to have an abortion she could still decide to take your life after birth. how do you feel about that? >> it is really sad to hear that. but it is not surprising to hear that when we live in a country that has arbitrary criteria for what defines personhood. so abortion is legal in the first trimester, the second trimester. the next step is not the third trimester. right not right after they're born? this brings to mind, this
5:37 am
reminds us the reality that people are people at conception. we should care about their personhood then, at conception. not past they're born because this is what we're left with when we have those kind of arbitrary criteria for personhood. ainsley: i look at all of you, thanking god he spared your lives. when you watch the women cheer behind andrew cuomo in new york, when he signs the legislation, that you can have an abortion up until the very last second, you see the world trade center lit up in pink, what is your reaction? >> it is shocking to me that people no longer in our country care about what is true and, right. we know that a baby is what is in the inside of a mother's womb based on medical technology and science. so we just hope that, you know, because people can see our faces and see that we are people, we are human, we do grow up to be someone some day, that people will realize that those women do
5:38 am
not speak for women like me. so i would ask those people where were my rights as a woman? what were my rights in the womb. ainsley: melissa, you were not supposed to live. here you are living. you're a public speaker. you go out and you give life and redemption to a lot of women all over the country. what's your message to people who are having to make a decision? what is your message to those governors that signed this legislation? >> those governors i would say echoing claire's sentiments. this is a human rights issue and in a world that decry as women's rights where were claire's rights, where were mine? where are the rights of little girls of their lives ended by abortion today? without the right to life there is no other right that comes? for someone who is facing that decision about an abortion, i want people to know they're not alone. so many women are coerced, forced, don't know what resources exist for them in
5:39 am
their communities. they are completely unsupported. so i want women to know there are resources available in every community. they can always contact any of us. you're never alone. ainsley: i love to honor those parents that adopted all three of you and all of my friends, you know, anyone who adopted a child, i have a friend who adopted a little girl. i hate it people say i'm adoptive parent. i want to be a parent. she has a biological parent but i am the mom. tell us your story about your parent, making the same mistake. josiah, tell but the family that brought you into their home? >> i'm actually the son of a pastor of worship at a southern baptist church in oklahoma. my parents, they have 12 kids but they adopted 10 ever us. what caused them to adopt us is the gospel. the fact that they have been changed by god to love others. his work in their life then causes them to love those around them. gives them pro-life conviction
5:40 am
to take in the children, make them their own. just as god made them his children, they make them their children. ainsley: claire, how about yours? >> i was adopted by a couple that weren't able to have children naturally. and so i also have a sister who is adopted. they just side that, when they went to the doctors, there was 1% chance of them having children naturally. so they knew the other way, to have children was through adoption. god created our family. i owe my parents so much credit for the way i was able to respond to my birth mother when she told me because they raised me on love and grace and forgiveness. so all three of us have forgiven our birth mothers because we know that they had no idea what they were getting into when they had an abortion. and so, there is so much hope and healing after abortion. >> it is not about condemnation. we hear your stories. just amazing how god has huge
5:41 am
plans for all of y'all when you weren't even supposed to be here. it is incredible. we'll end this with your story about your parents. >> my mom and dad were a lot like claire's. they struggled with infertility for 15 years. they were foster parents. they adopted my older sister from another family and adopted me. no matter what they told me my life would be like, i faced multiple disabilities. ainsley: look at you. >> that is the power of love, right. this is what love does, it saves lives. brings us to life. after 15 years of infertility my parents had a biological child of their own. ainsley: wow. i hear that a lot. our assistant here, her parent were told they couldn't have kids. they went down to south carolina to adopt kids, she found out on that trip she was pregnant with twins. with three little once. we love you elizabeth. powerful, powerful stories. because god spared your lives, there are five kids between

5:46 am
print. michael goodwin is a "new york post" columnist, fox news contributor. he joins us live. no doubt about it, starting with the president's state of the union on tuesday, that was not a good, optically, not good for the democrats. >> right. you know, steve, my point in the column not so much the president's sanity but it is that you cannot blame him for all the craziness on the left. you mentioned the way they behaved, the women, especially behaved at the state of the union address. they wouldn't stand for anything, except when he recognized them. this, this kind of sullen, grumbling feeling about everything, whether secure borders or not socialists, no interests in any of that. no interest in low unemployment among african-americans. but, oh look, we have more women. oh, great, that is us. you see what is going on in virginia. you see what is going on in new york, with the taxes and the spending. all of this is of a piece that
5:47 am
there is this irrational reaction to everything trump says and does as though everything wrong in america is his fault. but these are, these are issues that have nothing to do with donald trump. these are democrats own doing. they are digging their own holes in these states. steve: you mentioned the tax situation, for instance here in new york you talk about how even though florida has one million more people than new york state, they are able to run that state, which is a know-tax state for your state income tax, able to run the state on half the money we do here in new york. >> you don't hear floridians claim we have terrible services here. steve: they're great. >> they don't say we need more government. new york, it is never enough, no matter how much with spend, so many needs unmet. you have every year ratcheting up of spending 3, 4, 5%. now you have this outward migration of people who are sick of paying these high taxes and
5:48 am
seeing the city decline, the state decline and it is fascinating. new york's population has hardly grown in about 25 years. relative to other states. steve: right. just look at that. would you say in the runup to the next election we'll hear a lot of the president saying remember in the old days when we had republicans running the house and we were able to get stuff down and now look what is going on, where i know you don't like to use the word trump derangement syndrome but there seems to be a lot of that going on? >> sure. i think that has become a excuse for democrats, is that, take the abortion laws, for example, you were just discussing with your other guests. it is very much about now, trump has appointed conservative justices to the supreme court. let's go crazy. let's promise abortion on the demand up to the date of delivery. let's raise taxes because the president is cutting them. the president wants to build a wall. let's be for open borders. on and on and on. you have this thing.
5:49 am
he is for capitalism, let's be for socialism. this is an extreme overreaction. it makes the president look like an adult. looks like he is sensible compared to this. but, it is not something that he has done. they're doing it to themselves. steve: read all about it on the pages of "the new york post." michael, thank you very much. >> thank you,. steve: steve this powerful video is going viral. a 6-year-old girl battling cancer is sworn in as an honorary police officer. that brave little girl, the chief who helped fulfill their dream, thumbs up, they join us next. check in with sandra smith for a preview of coming attractions. >> good morning, everybody. latest on the political crisis in virginia. governor northam still resisting calls to step down. what is happening with all that. nothing off the table when it comes to immigration talks. the latest from the white house as a deadline quickly approaches. the democrats identity melt-down. the latest on 2020. lara trump will be joining us on
