[buzzer] brian: my prediction is six months. i bet you happy forever. 20 years we will be back here celebrating the 20th anniversary or celebrate on their own. president trump will ask for $8.6 billion to build the southern wall and congress will ignore it. ainsley: the money part of next year's congressional budget expected to be delivered a few hours from now. steve: already hearing from democrats. griff jenkins joins us live from washington. you know what, griff? they are already talking
3:03 am
about another shoutdown. >> democrats don't like it already. won't be released officially for another few hours. a budget for a better america. promises kept, taxpayers first. take a look at numbers. 8.6 billion today tha total fora billion wall 5 about. from dhs and 3.6 from military construction. 722 miles of border barrier. reduction in nondefense domestic spending and overall achieves 2.7 trillion in spending cuts. but speaker pelosi and minority leader schumer are signaling they want to fight. in a joint statement they write this president trump hurt millions of americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall, which he promised would be paid for by mexico. the same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again. we hope he has learned his lesson. will the border battle begin again? larry kudlow says this. >> i suppose there will be i
3:04 am
would say the whole issue of the wall and border security is paramount importance. we have a crisis down there. yes, is he going to stay with his wall and border security theme. i think it's essential. >> white house omp acting director appears before the budget committee where the chairman is calling it dangerous. brian: talk about this wall, griff. there is going to be a wall this week that's going to disavow the president's push for emergency funding and the president is probably going to exercise his first veto this week. we are worried about this year and projecting next year how do you keep up with it? >> it's washington. there is never a dull moment. you never sleep. ainsley: thanks, griff. steve: what griff just detailed there the fight for the border wall and security, essentially, when you look at this "wall street journal" report that is out this morning, it makes the case what the president has been saying for a while. they got their hands on what they call a planning profile
3:05 am
from the border patrol. what it suggests is that they are expecting 180,000 migrant families by may. keep in mind over the last five months they have already broken the record for the number of migrant families arrested at 136,000. ainsley: that's more than the entire fiscal year of 2018. steve: exactly right. which was 107. ainsley: five months beat the entire year before. incredible. >> brian: families coming through. in the mix statistically you know there is ms-13 criminals coming through. and then you factor in a separate layer that is the need for additional security at the ports of entry because of the amount of drugs. i think democrats have to understand whether they are whispering in the hall or to each other or on the plane on the way home, they know this is a crisis. how long are they going to pretend that the president is on an island on this. he is not. and it's amazing that there aren't more sober people understanding that things have to be done in an emergency. they go home to their place
3:06 am
in washington. they go back to san francisco and they don't worry about it meanwhile border patrol every day is overwhelmed. ainsley: look at the numbers, there are about 51 to 58,000 they expect to cross our border, talking about families, cross our border illegally or seek asylum. that's for march and april and in may they expecting that number to go up to 70,000 when it gets warmer. it's based on historical trends. steve: the whole dynamic is it's politics. forget about security. nobody ever complained about border security per se before donald trump. and, of course, because he made it one of the capstones of his cane deas, they are not going to give him a nickel. brian: remember when the unaccompanied minors served during the obama years then it became a crisis. vice president biden goes down to the central americans countries and says what's going on over here? then all of a sudden it got
3:07 am
scoiched for a long time. the president is keeping a light on it pretend like it's my bad or political talking point but it's actually not. ainsley: democrats took south by southwest by storm over the weekend. cultural festival they have in austin, texas, very popular especially for the music community. a lot of people end up going to this. we had so many differential democratic presidential candidates took the stage and they wanted to be heard. there were eight of them. and then beto o'rourke and aoc, alexandria ocasio-cortez were also there. those two are not running but they probably drew in the biggest crowd according to some of the articles. steve: that's right. it's interesting. because a number of them because the trump campaign feels that they can win in 2020 if they run against, look, the democrats are now socialist and they stand for green new deal thing which they feel are losers to the electorate. however, when you look at some of the democrats at the south by southwest festival down in austin in weekend. they weren't pushing
3:08 am
socialism so much. here is a little bit of it. >> this idea of like 10% better from garbage. [laughter] it shouldn't be what we settle for. >> let's propose things that are true, that are honest, that are sincere, and that are realistic. >> bernie has to speak to what democratic socialism is. >> you are not one. >> i am not. >> what used to be, let's call it american capitalism for lack of a better word, it's not providing middle class people and poor people the security or the opportunity that it used. to say. >> if we compensate people under the constitution because we take their property, why wouldn't you compensate people who actually work property. >> we have to defeat defeating climate change the number one priority of the united states that. >> governor wants to make it priority of his own state whewhen he put a carbon tax
3:09 am
resolution it failed. he wants to do it for the country. the other one is congressman julian castro he was talking about reparations and then you have elizabeth warren saying i'm not for socialism but i do want to pay for preschool. i do want to pay for college. i do want to pay for healthcare single payer. they don't want to use the term says bernie sanders has to respond to that. ainsley: new harris poll out it looks at what generation z and when millennials like. it's amazing young americans embrace socialism. 50% prefer living in a socialist country. steve: that's really something. brian: 100 percent probably don't understand what that means. steve: they like the idea because bernie sanders has made it very popular over the last period of time. generation z are the people who were born in the mid 1990s through the early 2,000s. 37%, a little more than a third of the people going to
3:10 am
vote 2020. ainsley: that is a big number. steve: it's gigantic. look at socialism vs. capitalism 61% prefer socialism which is extraordinary, you would think. the top three voting issues for people who are in generation z mass shootings. racial equality and immigration policy. now, jerry seib worked with the university of kansas with me back in the day. "wall street journal" associate editor he says look, if the democrats get too radical that's not going to help them in 2020, watch. >> centrists in the party are going crazy what happened in 2018 was republicans, soft republican suburban women in districts that donald trump carried in 2016 moved over to our side. these were moderate voters that won the house back for us in 2018 in states like pennsylvania and minnesota and virginia. and those are the people we have to go after and they
3:11 am
are not going to be won over with a socialist message. they are moderates and those are the people who will make the difference in 2020. steve: it's the people in the middle. the moderates, the independents. the persuadable. the people who realize medicare for all sounds great until you start to tally it up and where are we going to pay for that? ainsley: top individuals, healthcare, terrorism and national debt. when you are a candidate who do you appeal to the younger ones who want this, and this, and this or the older ones. brian: the line of the day has to be governor hickenlooper. he should be proud of he was a self-made success story. i don't know what happened to him. 11 minutes after the hour. hey, jillian. >> jillian: we have a fox news alert. let's start with this. boeing's new 737 max 8 jet grounded by several airlines and the chinese government overnight. the model crashed for a second time in five months in ethiopia over the
3:12 am
weekend. 157 people were killed. 8 of them americans. boeing has postponed plans to unveil a new 777 model that was scheduled nor week. president trump's former lawyer could face a perjury investigation after several inconsistencies surfaced in dramatic capitol hill testimony. >> i imagine that chairman cummings with end up referring him. that's my guess. when chairman cummings says something like i'm going to nail tout cross. he means it i have seen him in action. evidence is not going to let this go. >> cohen's lawyer insists he told the truth to the oversight panel. he starts a three year sentence in may for lying to congress. a hero's welcome for more than 50 veterans returning home from honor flight to vietnam. >> great being with all the other 50 veterans it was fantastic time. >> like all brothers we finally got what was due to
3:13 am
us. >> vets returning to wisconsin and thousands of cheering people after the two week trip. they toured the battle grounds they fought on decades ago. it's believed this is the first honor flight from the u.s. to return to vietnam. ainsley: that's amazing. normally the honor flights take to you washington, d.c. and to the memorials this was to vietnam. steve: they finally got hero's welcome they did not get back in the 1970s. thank you, jillian. coming up on this monday morning ocasio-cortez blasting president reagan's policies. watch this. >> how special interest has pitted white working class against brown and black working classes. reaganism. steve: what would president reagan have to say about that? our next guest worked by reagan's side for years you will hear from her coming up. brian: born to be wild. the new harley for kids.

3:18 am
working class americans against brown and black working class americans in order to just screw over all working class americans is reaganism in the '80s when he started talking about welfare queens. brian: okay ocasio-cortez telling us at a festival in texas how she really feels about former president ronald reagan and fdr by the way. next guest worked with reagan and author of the president will see you now here to weigh in is peggy grandey former assistant to president reagan. peggy. how do you feel about the president's policies were racist when he talked about welfare queens. >> that's just ridiculous. if you looked at what happened to black america and to the working middle class under our first african-american president barack obama, we see that what she is talking about is just a crazy byproduct of the indoctrination of political leanings in the educational system. it's no longer based on learning a byproduct of what's happened in the
3:19 am
school system lately. so, you know, it's crazy to think that niece ideas are not only being touted by her but being followed by so many others. they say when you are young if you are not a liberal you don't have a heart. if you are not a conservative when you are older you don't have a brain. so, we may be able to give her a pass but there are so many people following her. brian: i don't know. if she was 39 she would be running for president and probably winning. >> she absolutely would be. brian: meanwhile, when it comes to moderates, don't even bring that up to her that's worse. listen. >> moderate is not a stance. it's just an attitude toward life of like we have become so cynical that we view meh, or eh, or cynicism as an intellectual superior attitude. and we view ambition as youthful naivete.
3:20 am
brian: i'm confused but i will try to grab on to something there. >> wow. brian: moderates are what? >> well, ronald reagan famously said it so well when he said, you know, liberals are not ignorant, they just know so many things that aren't so. and we see that playing out famously on the left right now. they are in love with this idea of socialism, it's virtual reality. >> it's this allusion and not based in any substance or fact. in fact, we see overwhelming evidence on the contrary especially playing out right now in venezuela. the true danger in what they're talking about is knot the danger of what they are telling us, it's the danger of what they are not telling us. and if we take the bait of freebies and government control, the hook is there underneath. brian: thanks, peggy. >> by then we are going to be all in danger. one generation left from extinction. brian: very well put i appreciate it time for the moderates to speak up to the meh description. >> absolutely.

emergency department vice chairman at nyu wynn up there hospital. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: you are an expert these shows consult with you. can that happen? >> it is. pacemakers internal defib black lives matter, insulin delivery systems and even, you know, infusion system are electronic devices computer based. put it into perspective they are not looking to kill them unless they have nefarious attack against that person. not a high value target. theoretically it can happen. companies put safeguards in place. you upgrade opportunity system firm ware, software. people try to stay one step ahead. ainsley: so scary. play a scene from grey's anatomy. can you live without a heart? watch this clip. >> okay, wait. let me get this straight. you removed her heart? >> yes. >> and she can live that way like, what, like a vampire?

>> usually you would connect a ventricular system-to the heart. >> dr. aultman attached to devices to her blood vessels. this machine now pumps the blood through her body which is basically a miracle. >> on the show she lives without a heart for six weeks. is that possible? >> yes. the device are there to help people who are getting ready for a cardiac trans plant and their heart is malfunctioning so this assists the heart. they are not living without a heart. the heart is there it's external device helps keep the heart pumping until they can get the transplant. ainsley: here is a scene from the resident when power goes out at the hospital. watch this.

3:34 am
curious point of view. the big question is will democrats accept that in congress or just continue with their own investigations? that looks like the tact right now. let bring in dan bongino former cop and secret service agent and author of spy gate the attempted sabotage of donald j. trump which deals with this topic. do you think there will be a reckoning of the media and democrats if mueller doesn't find any collusion? >> no. sadly, steve, i don't think it will change anything. you know, the media has embarrassed themselves in this case. one of the biggest scandals of the whole spy gate, russia gate debacle has been the media's roll in propagating enaggrandizing the american public into thinking any of this was true at all. there is no there there. do you realize no one has produced a scintilla of evidence justifying this investigation outside of the fake dossier to this day? >> nobody. nobody has produced that. the media is the one who advanced this story.
3:35 am
brian: yeah. very interesting. terry moran is right. and the mueller report comes out and it says the things that the russians did but cannot link it to the trump campaign already adam schiff has shifted the goal post or moved the goal post because he says, well, the president never really submitted to an interview. so, unless he submits to an interview of robert mueller, we don't really know what happened so. again, we get the answer to the quiz and we find out the test is different. >> that's a great analogy, brian. that's -- you are making my point. exactly what i was telling steve. this isn't going to change everything. when you understand that the media has already committed that they have to take down donald trump no matter, what their behavior is never going to change. one of the things i want to get across here is, the reason this scandal is so devastating is when you understand that this was never, this opposition research into donald trump and this whole russia hoax thing, this was never an information gathering operation, right? that's what standard opo
3:36 am
research is. i'm running against you for office. i want to find out your history, bad votes, if you had some kind of criminal contact and i want to use it against you. that's not what this ever was. this was an information production operation on donald trump. in other words, they committed to the narrative in advance. donald trump is a russian spy. go get me information that figures this out. when you understand that one key point, this entire case makes sense. ainsley: let's talk about anti-hate resolution. liz cheney was interviewed and asked about it she says by the democrats not naming ilhan omar in that resolution that they're predictinprotectingher. listen to. this the thing people need to be focused on here is that the democrats in the house of representatives and even some of the democrats themselves are completely frustrated with the fact that the leadership is -- they are protecting her. you know, this isn't just being silent. they are protecting her by failing to put a resolution on the floor that named her and that strips her of her committee assignment. instead they put a
3:37 am
resolution on the floor which she went out and said this is a tremendous victory for me. now, if we are not going to be in a position where you say the kind of language that she has said again and again and again is absolutely unacceptable and has no place in our discourse, then those people who won't condemn it are enabling it. ainsley: do you agree with her, dan? >> yeah. how embarrassing for the democrats? brian: unbelievable. >> you had one job. to condemn teasm. anti-semitism. how hard is. this representative omar made grotesque comments you have to read them yourself. i don't need to summarize them. check them out yourself. they are out all there for everyone to see. easy to do all had you to do was condemn them. kellyanne conway had a great tweet don't you find it odd that the media out there attacked this covington kid for sitting there and saying nothing and invented a story yet you have tweets on the record by a member of congress openly
3:38 am
anti-semitic, grotesque comments, nobody should be making in a position of power and they do the opposite for ilhan omar. they try protect her. i mean, it's really horrible. brian: it got worse on friday in a politico magazine story she said you know that whole obama hope and changes thing it's a mirage. she said basically his policies aren't any different than donald trump's he is just smoother operator. so, let me see aoc turns on fdr. omar turns on obama. who are they -- what party are they actually in? >> listen, brian, you've got to remember. evidence revolution, oid logical revolution in human history bedrocked in state power and not individual liberty has always been cannibalistic as always turned on itself every time you are never pure enough. it always leaps from one extreme to the next. i want a 60% tax rate. i want 80% tax rate. hell, i want everything.
3:39 am
i want more immigration. i want open borders. i want the whole world to come to the united states. we can give them all benefits. you are never pure enough in a state power revolution. this thing is going to end very, very badly for the democrats if they don't get a hold of this quickly. steve: all right. let's see what happens. dan, thank you very much. all revved up down there in palm beach county. >> even with the time change i'm still revved up. you can't keep this guy down here. brian: if you do say so yourself. go get them, dan. steve: 20 minutes now before the top of the hour. jillian joins us with a story out of michigan. jillian: good morning. a teenager falls off a hotel balcony and dies during spring break. falling seven stories to his death on a trip to cancun, mexico with his friends. an autopsy and toxicology test are being done to determine the michigan's teen cause of death. investigation into what led to the fall is underway. the woman clawed by a jaguar as she tried to take a

3:48 am
what restaurants may have a political bent. we are not looking to try and find restaurants that are conservative or pro-trump our aim is to get politics out of local businesses, local restaurants and make everyone feel comfortable when they go out. steve: okay. so i have seen this described as yelp for conservatives. scott, on the conservatives that are deemed unsafe and that one right there is safe, what went into saying they are not safe? >> users can review the local businesses and restaurants just four quick questions, yes or no questions. number one, does this location serve all customers regardless of political beliefs? will they protect their customers if they are under attack by others in the restaurant? there is a conceal carry question. does the location have a political presence in their social media? again, we are trying to get
3:49 am
politics out of these businesses. we want businesses to understand that there is no money in politics. and we are working to call them out on it. people just want to go out and eat. they just want to go out and shop. let's not mix the two. there is a general unease among conservatives and we want to make sure everyone is safe out there. this is our third app. for 63 red. we are building a suite of conservative tools. three are available today. we have a total of six planned between now and the end of the summer. and a lot more planned between now and november 2020 elections. ainsley: okay. i know the server crashed because have you gotten so much attention. steve and i just downloaded it. internet word pizzato if you want to find a pizzato restaurant in your neighborhood. very clever. >> absolutely. and thank you and we are a little bit frustrated by that. that's really not our standards. we are looking to increase server capacity. bear with us a little bit. we may have a little bit more trouble today. steve: scott wallace joining us today from oklahoma city.

4:02 am
southern border this year. ainsley: in one hour the president is expected to unveil his 2020 budget asking for $8.6 billion for the border wall. brian: they will debate that 8 months and won't give it to him likely. griff jenkins is ahead. griff: i just got off the phone with a official told me stunning startling numbers total number of family yiewngs coming across our border fiscal year 19 will exceed that of the combined total of the last three years. this year they anticipate or project more than 180,000 will come, mostly all from you central american countries in these family units. they expect 51,000 to 58,000 this month alone with this traditional seasonal spike they could be looking at as many as 70,000 in may. those are numbers that are not as the administration said are sustainable. remember we also mentioned last week that mexico's secretary of interior said here in washington at think tank that she thinks as many as 700,000 central migrant
4:03 am
families could cross their southern border. this projection comes as the president will unveil that 2020 budget. if n. a few hours look at the numbers here 8.6 billion total for the border wall of which 5 billion comes from dhs, 3.6 billion comes from defense and military construction it will complete 722 miles of border barrier. also includes 5% across the board reduction in nondefense domestic spending and achieves overall 2.7 trillion in spending cuts. speaker pelosi and minority leader schumer are signaling a fight saying the president should have learned his lesson last time but white house advisor larry kudlow says he is ready for a fight. >> i suppose there will be. i would just say that the whole issue of the wall and border security is of paramount importance. we have a crisis down there. yes, is he going to stay with his wall. and is he going to stay with the border security theme. i think it's essential. >> here is something to watch for. the white house omb acting director is going before the house budget committee
4:04 am
tomorrow. you will see these projected numbers standing in contrast with the request for the 8.6 billion, guys. brian: there is clearly a crisis. thanks, griff. i'm more worried about this year's debate with the emergency declaration there is going to be a vote and the president is going to have to veto the vote of disapproval for the special money that he needs 3.6 billion, especially, that's going to give him over 8 to finish the barrier or at least do about 100 miles of the barrier. going to vote on that in the senate. probably at least 10 republicans going to vote against the president. but there won't be 20 so they won't be able to override his veto. let's worry about this year first. ainsley: that's happening. steve: jaw-dropping his lead story was that they are expecting more families to enter the family illegally attempt than the last three years combined. ainsley: can you believe that? steve: the number of single immigrants coming across the border has been dropping for a while. now there is such a surge if
4:05 am
families, particularly texas. ainsley: speaking of texas. that's washington. we are talking about the budget. down in texas is that cultural festival called south by southwest. you probably heard of it. a lot of musicians go down there in austin, texas. a lot of these individuals that want to run for president or are running for president were speaking there. and alexandria ocasio-cortez not old enough to run for president, she also was on stage, got a huge crowd. and this is what she said about ronald reagan's policies. calling his policies racist. >> well, i think a perfect example of how special interest and the powerful has pitted white working class americans against brown and black working class americans in order to just screw over all working class americans is reaganism in the '80s when he started talking about welfare queens. is he painting this like really resentful vision of
4:06 am
essentially black women who were doing nothing, that sucks on our country. that's not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist rat caricature. steve: she also said fdr's new deal which helped dig the united states out of depression whites over minorities. when you combine that with her comments about ronald reagan, brian had a great interview with peggy grande who used to work as executive assistant to ronald reagan and she had this observation about the former president's policies and what aoc said. >> it's crazy to think that these ideas are not only being touted by her but being followed by so many others. you know, they say when you are young if you are not a liberal you don't have a heart. if you are not a conservative when you are older, you don't have a brain. so we may be able to give her a pass but there are so many people who are following her. brian: put down moderates.
4:07 am
they are the worst. they are meh which means you are nothing. you are in between. you act like moderates are insuperior. there are a lot of moderates that might have delivered the house to democrats. without moderates the democrats would still be in power with the leftist principles that she portrays never would have gotten a seat out of california and seats out of texas. ainsley: according to new poll the moderates are looking for a candidate that's more moderate. they are not in favor of these socialist policies. talking about this poll out of michigan. it was an emerson college poll. they asked people who is going to win the primary. do you know who they all chose? the number one at least? joe biden who is not even in the race yet. loolook at that 40%. steve: joe 40, bernie 23. kamala 12 and elizabeth warren 11. those are the only four in double digits. the older the voter gets the
4:08 am
more likely they are to vote for joe biden. ainsley: bernie won. steve: he has been vacationing down in saint croix with his family 95% in. ainsley: getting the vacation in before he has to run. steve: they say the announcement is imminent although the apparently the biden team is planning on some sort of launch in april. brian: a couple of things. planning on april. already rolling out some clips because he has been doing this since he was 28 years old. he has been speaking out about policies for the last 40 years. one of which about segregation. he will have to explain. he have to exchange his -- explain for many democrats his position on the crime bill in the 1990s. also going to have to back up 8 years of president obama's foreign policy. he have an interesting road to hoe. before he gets shots from the right he has to overcome them on the left.
4:09 am
ainsley: why do you think that was happening in that state though they loved bernie and now leaning more towards joe biden. so why the change in that state? brian: bernie was beating hillary. this is a totally different race now. steve: when you look at the fact that there is about a dozen people running. some of their views are so far to the left joe biden people aren't sure where he is of course, joe biden is moderate compared to bernie sanders. bernie sanders a couple of years ago he was way out there and he was asked over the weekend up in new england how his ideas were considered inconceivable a couple of years ago and now look how far everybody has come. watch this. >> those ideas that we talked about four years ago that seemed so very radical at that time. well, today, virtually all of those ideas are supported
4:10 am
by a majority of the american people. all of those ideas inconceivable never happened, bernie or what are you smoking? [laughter] that's another issue that was considered to be too radical. [laughter] brian: he is getting big crowds. he certainly knows this stuff because he believes this stuff. however, in his life as you look at his resume he has accomplished nothing. he has never put a policy forward. he has never run anything successfully. what he has done for run for president and been a socialist. if i'm a democrat i'm going he is not even in my party and he is using the whole apparatus of the democratic party. ainsley: free. everything is free. brian: unbelievable. steve: the kids like bernie the people over 30 like joe biden there is a big item today in the "the washington post" that talks about how trump's campaign is going to be gigantic. $100 million so far in campaign war chest. they believe that the
4:11 am
democrat shift to the far left on the green new deal and medicare for all is really going to help them. and the key to success is they are targeting 23 million key votes in the states of florida, ohio, michigan and wisconsin. they are going to have a million volunteers. a lot of people who have shown up at these rallies which are going to kick off in battleground states very, very soon. that's their way to win in 2020. brian: it will be finish the wall and keep america great. and the president can't wait to get started. he got briefed on it over the weekend. of the thing that he has got to do is find a way to get women back and find a way to get moderates back expand his base. that's his goal. ainsley: let us know your thoughts on that topic it was. meanwhile hand it over to jillian. jillian: update on story we have been following. ethiopian state media reporting that the black box from that doomed ethiopian airlines flight has just been recovered. 157 people, including eight americans were killed when the boeing 737 max 8 jet

4:18 am
have investigated it because we want to get it right. maybe cnn can learn from that. >> cnn set to be sued for more than $250 million as early as today over its, quote, vicious and direct attacks on the covington catholic high school student nicholas sandmann following the clash on capitol hill. brian: here with more of the fallout is beverly hallberg of the independent women's forum. you say that the attack from cnn was even worse than the "the washington post" in what way? >> well, when you look at cnn and the platform and the reach that they have they were able to cover this story for 48 hours straight with a faulty narrative claiming that nick sandmann of course this minor, this young man wearing a maga hat was using racist language and being very disrespectful and mocking to the gentleman who was standing in fronts of him. so, when you have this much coverage, it's very hard for cnn even when they get the story right to do right by this young man. and that's the problem with incorrect reporting is that retractions and corrections rarely get the same amount
4:19 am
of coverage so i think this lawsuit is a huge wake-up call to news outlets to try to get the story right. because this is damaging to some people's lives when they get the story wrong. ainsley: beverly, he sued "the washington post" for 250 million. does he have a case in both of these suits and will he win them and how much will he get? >> i'm not sure how much he will get. i'm not sure if he will win. i think a lot of people are wondering why he is suing for so much. i will leave it to the lawyers to determine that but, i do think when it comes to the news outlets, i'm hoping what this does cause is for even those who say free speech is very important. i agree that's an important right that we realize it comes with accountability that when it comes to news outlets they can't report things that aren't true. and i think just right now in this day and age there is a rush to put stories out there. brian: no kidding. >> to not do investigative reporting. so i'm hoping this -- can we say, put the fear of god in journalists throughout to realize they could be sued if they don't do due diligence. brian: i want you to hear what linwood said about nick
4:20 am
the person. >> cnn couldn't resist the idea that here is a guy, a young boy with a make america great again cap on. they go after him and maintain it for at least days. they were vicious, it was false. nicholas was collateral damage. the war that cnn is waging is against the president of the united states. brian: he says they should have taken two days to describe how they got the story wrong and how they got it wrong. final thought? >> retractions never get the same amount of coverage. unfortunately this young man was caught in the crossfire i'm hoping this lawsuit does help him rebuild his reputation because he will forever be googled if you google his name with racism and, of course, that's going to ruin his future. ainsley: it's going to hurt him when he tries to get a job or get into colleges. thank you so much. >> thank you. brian: ground breaking case, a doctor sentenced to life in prison for selling the opioids that led to a patient's death. is that fair? a doctor, a lawyer, and a police sergeant discuss it all. ainsley: she might be the luckiest lady alive.

4:26 am
jonah spill borg in the middle and former sergeant. jonah, you have a personal story have you seen it upclose. >> i have seen it upclose and personal it is very scary, steve. as you mentioned we have an opioid epidemic in this country. and when a doctor prescribes opioids to a patient without careful enough monitoring, you can almost guarantee that that patient will get addicted. the problem is unless there is court intervention when you send somebody to rehab, they can walk in the front door and walk out the back. there is nothing that keeps them there. so they don't get well. tragedy occurs. steve: doctor, she had a family member who was overprescribed something for pain, that's how it always starts. but when you look at those numbers, close to 50,000 people died last year because of this? >> it's crazy. and said to be even more this year. it's not getting any better. steve: what about this particular doctor?
4:27 am
i know you feel it's important not to punish doctors who are doing good but then again, there are a few bad apples out there who make things worse. >> there is bad players in every field. and you will find that there are some doctors that do take advantage of it but, for the most part. doctors want to do the right thing. and in this article he even states he wanted to do the right thing. i'm not so sure about that. the way it's presented. but, you know, we are trying our hardest with the tools that we have got. steve: all right. steve, apparently this guy, according to the feds. postdated prescriptions and wrote them without a medical need or legitimate examine in return for cash. it just sounds like he was just in the bi in the business f giving pills to anybody who wanted them. >> he was. we are seeing this more and more. when president trump ran he promised he would address the opioid crisis. he has addressed the united states attorney general's to address it and prosecute it we are seeing a much greater enforcement. we had an arrest back in the fall of 2018.
4:28 am
they arrested five doctors, and two of the doctors responsible for issuing a million pills per year. steve: is this punishment excessive? life in prison, doctor? >> i don't think so. in this particular case, i don't think so. i think what he did was egregious. i think selling prescriptions without examining a patient is wrong, no matter what in any field in any case. when you are selling prescriptions to patients who they know these doctors know are desperate. and will pay anything. these doctors have patients lining up out the door. steve: which is pretty scary. we were talking earlier about the increased use of fentanyl which is killing a lot of people. you said that people who are hooked on this stuff look for the guy who sold the stuff that killed somebody because they want to go to that guy because he has the good stuff? >> yeah. they will go to dealers whose clients have overdosed. clients, i call them clients, who have overdosed.

5:34 am
that is not time enough to see a judge. they know that he will be detain ad few days, be released. look at families from central america, look at data on the books, 92% of central americans who claim aaisle up are from the border won't get relief from the government. they don't show up to court, don't file in court or lose cases. until congress closes loophole you will see them coming. i said last week, i.c.e. needs to do a nationwide operation. look for the family groups and adults who have had due process at great taxpayer expense, ordered removed by a judge. we have to execute those orders. if we don't, those orders mean nothing there is no integrity of our system. i did that three years ago. that resulted immediate decrease in crossings on the border. we have to show central america we're serious about enforcing our laws. brian: you doesn't need congress to do that. does kirstjen nielsen decide i.c.e. is empowered to do that?

4,000 people that the border patrol saved that were found dying in the desert. they don't talk about that. before i recently retired we have nine to 12 deaths in custody. but we have 350,000 people from third world countries, many have never seen a doctor coming into our custody, so they're in bad shape. unfortunate anybody died, but nine to 12 is pretty good number compared to new york state. aoc, likes to yell about people dying in i.c.e. custody, her own state has three-times as many deaths in custody and they deal with 90,000 people as i.c.e. does. 1/3 the deaths a lot more people coming through the process. when i was in i.c.e., we spent half a billion dollars for medical care for illegal aliens. the numbers are sad but i think our medical program in i.c.e. is better, we have less deaths, name a state, penal institution, any other problem we beat most of them. steve: that son the southern border. yet, tom, watch this, this is a bit of a nbc news report, says
