temporary worker i have. ice has no record of him leaving the u.s. nor extending his visa after it expired. another officer in that incident bone nit toe chavez was injured in the leg. acting ice director john torrez said this shouldn't have happened. >> any time a law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty is this a tragedy. even more sendsless when done by someone who shouldn't be here in the united states. >> this comes as ronald vitiello visited. cdp have no more space to hold them in the sector. in the rbg, the sources tell me they have apprehended more than 1,000 illegal crossers every day this week since last saturday. think about those numbers for a second. this is essentially a caravan every day this week and they don't know where to put them. steve: exactly. griff, thank you very much. jedediah: thanks, griff.
3:04 am
steve: keep in mind some people on the political left who say look, no crisis. last month in february, the coldest month of the year, which is historically the least traveled across our southern border. 76,000 people were detained getting into the country. that's enough to fill up metlife stadium. ed: each "the washington post" and "washington times" were admitting in the last couple days this was 11-year high in terms of the crossings. the key that you mentioned a moment ago democrats keep calling it a manufactured crisis. steve: oh, so it's a crisis now? ed: maybe they have to eventually dropped the manufactured part and admittedly say it's a crisis. steve: they thought it was a stunt with the caravan. jedediah: key here we have families coming out sons, daughters, relatives who have died at the membersy of these people who they are saying shouldn't have been here to begin with we had a woman on this week whose son was decapitated by illegal immigrant. when you have these stories come to the forefront makes statistics much more real. that woman said i want these people deported they are not
3:05 am
supposed to be here and not properly vetted. as a result these tragedies are happening. ed: a.p. said border patrol is overwhelmed something the president has been saying months and months and months and now reached the mainstream media. many of the leading democratic contenders are simply not listening. they are still saying a, it's not a crisis and b,we don't need a wall. watch. >> we do not need any walls, $30,000,000,000.2000 miles long. 30 feet high. it will not be built on the international boundary line which is the center line of the rio grande river. that wall will be built well into the interior of someone's ranch, someone else's farm. someone else's home. you and i will be forced to take their property to solve a problem that we do not have. steve: you know, he very clearly at the beginning of that sound bite we do not need a wall. it wasn't until donald trump came along that anybody ever said you know walls don't
3:06 am
work. of course that's what they say now. and they are very expensive. no problem here beto o'rourke who just lives a couple of miles from the border with mexico in el paso said. meanwhile, they's talk more about 2020 politics. and it has been very clear that our situation, our relationship with israel has become politicized and, of course, apec is that annual convention they have very supportive of israel clearly. mousavi came out with series of tweets asking candidates to skip aipac because it's not in their. jedediah: some have decided they want to align themselves with move you have buttigieg, former stan antonio mayor. julian castro, gillibrand, kamala harris. inslee, beto o'rourke, bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. remind these people what works in a primary doesn't
3:07 am
always work in a general elections. you will be held to account for this. we have a long-standing relationship being an ally with israel. move is a highly progressive organization. i would be very careful about this move. ed: meanwhile, aipac is this important group liaisons with israel and the united states. it's been largely bipartisan or nonpartisan. steve: until. ed: until the years of donald trump being in office. all of a sudden the democrats are trying to please move on as you say. it's not a mainstream media organization. it's a far left organization. other thing is think about where we are contexturally a couple weeks after ilhan omar this democratic congressman had this whole issue nancy pelosi had to deal with anti-semitic remarks. democrats claimed with that resolution watered down they were trying to turn the page and have new realities relations between u.s. and israel and not have this episode continue. what do they do next? whole bunch of 2020
3:08 am
contenders avoid aipac. steve: move said don't go so a bunch of them aren't. john hickenlooper is the great governor of the state of colorado. ed: former. steve: he was on cnn's town hall a couple of nights ago he has said something that's gotten a lot of attention from the mainstream media. watch this. >> >> i just heard a statistic recently that about 80% of american kids consider themselves as just plain old americans before they enter high school and about two thirds of them about halfway through college become hyphenated american. steve: that was the wrong sound bite. that is not the former governor. that was sean mcfarland at the american enterprise institute talking about his experiences training young men and women. who is mr. hickenlooper.
3:09 am
let's try it again. here is the sound bite that's gotten a lot of attention. governor, some of your male competitors have vowed to put a woman on the ticket, "yes" or "no," would you do the same. >> again, of course. how come we are not asking more often the women would you be willing to put a man on the ticket? ed: i think his real point was why do we continue to assume that a man will be at the top of the ticket and a woman has to be asked and you are going to pander rather than picking the best person man or woman? why not think about maybe a woman will actually win the democratic nomination again and that it will be a man that will be number two. instead, just the opposite is happening. many on the left, many in the mainstream media are going after hickenlooper like he is the bad guy. watch. >> john hickenlooper's answer about the possibility of a female running mate sparking backlash. >> i don't know what the heck he was talking about.
3:10 am
there are a lot of democrats feel women haven't been given just due. when hickenlooper says things like that he is basically dismissing those concerns. [laughter] >> craig, i don't even know how to reply to that 45 presidents have been men. i mean i think that speaks for itself. >> it's just one of those answers that you really groan at. i certainly did when i saw it i think i'm going to send governor hickenlooper a copy of those place mats with all the president's faces on them that are all men. jedediah: as a woman. i didn't groan at it great answer. don't pick me because i'm a female. pick me because i'm the best person for the job. pick me because i'm going to pick a woman vp. that does not necessarily make you qualified nor does it make the woman the best person for the job just because she is a female. for women out there, a lot of women in the voting base a lot of this insults us. just a heads up. steve: most extraordinary
3:11 am
thing he revealed this week he told an audience that apparently when he was in college he took his mother to a porno movie didn't realize what it was she didn't want to get up and lee. at the end she said something like there is pretty good lighting. [laughter] ed: what? he should be facing more backlash for that than not saying maybe a woman will be president and man will be number two. jillian, what do you have to say? jillian: some things should be kept to yourself. good morning. get you caught up on breaking news we are following. overnight, two american service members are killed during an operation in afghanistan. their identities have not been revealed and it's unclear how they died. they are the third and fourth american service members killed this year. right now there are around 14,000 u.s. troops supporting afghan soldiers in their fight against the taliban. also breaking right now, a multi-billion-dollar order for boeing 737 max jets is
3:12 am
cancelled. indonesia's airline pulling its order for jets. this comes as two 737 max jets crashed in ethiopia and indonesia. boeing has been causing extra for safety features that will now become standard on 737 max jets. the models have been grounded in several countries including the u.s. president trump making history recognizing israeli control over the golan heights. the president tweeting, quote: after 52 years it is time for the united states to fully recognize israel's sovereignty over the golan heights which is of critical, strategic and security importance to the state of israel and regional stability. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is deeply grateful for the support. he will visit the white house next week. and plenty of heart-stopping action in the first day of march madness. there always is, right? 12th seed murray state pulling off big upstate over
3:13 am
market. florida gators beat nevada 70-61. wildcats surviving a scare from st. mary' saint mary 61-57. a crushing loss. scoring late and then right there hugging his coach. he missed the whole season because of an injury. so that was one of those nice moments that you like to see even though they lost. that's still a moment that they will have. steve: hadn't they won just like first game ever. straight ahead on this friday, if you can't win, just change the rule. politics 101 according to some democrats. >> get rid of the electoral college. >> i think there is a lot of wisdom in that. >> the popular vote has been diminished. jedediah: why is the electoral college so important? our next guest has a history lesson come up. ed: thought you heard the last of hillary clinton's emails? think again.

[cheers and applause] and everybody -- >> a growing number of democrats still reigl reeling at the 2016 loss looking ated head at 2020. ed: why did the founding fathers feel this election system was so popular and what would be the imoccasion if democrats drug it down. jedediah: here to explain is historian doug. >> thank you ed and jedediah. jedediah: remind why the founding fathers thought this was so important. >> checks and balance and to give everybody a vote. we could have the mainstream media in hollywood and silicone valley all just go to a ballroom at the ritz carlton in santa barbara, california, lock the doors, pick the president and the country would be at peace. but the people in the rest of the country get to

3:20 am
jedediah: doug, real quickly, what are the odds it could happen? >> it's not going to happen. this is back to 2016. first it was comey's fault. then it was the russians fault. now it's thomas jefferson's fault. it's the u.s. constitution is the problem. ed: the founding fathers had a bit of wisdom and sometimes people don't want to listen but it's there doug, we appreciate you. >> thanks ed and jedediah. jedediah: add social security among the things democrats want to hand out to illegals. will it work? we will debate it next. ed: what happens when ron burgundy shows up to call an nhl hockey game? >> you don't mind if i bite into this burrito. shot a goal. he scores. put that baby to bed without a diaper. steven could only imaginem 24hr to trenjoying a spicy taco.burn,

3:25 am
after claiming illegal imgantz should having seas immigrants should have access to social security. >> you must have the right to pay into social security. steve: okay. the right to pay into social security. now she is clarifying those remarks at her rally last night in vegas. >> you let the 10, 11 million people who are here now working now begin to buy into social security. pay into social security, pay into taxes, pay their fair share and over a 10-year period they will earn their way into citizenship. steve: all right. so, here with the debate on whether or not illegals should get into the social security program, we have got immigration attorney francisco hernandez who joins us from dallas and senior policy director with the conservative partnership institute rachel bowvard:
3:26 am
kirsten gillibrand has made the suggestion when she was a senator she has not proposed this in the senate but now that she is running for president she thinks this is a great idea and i bet you do, too. >> well, if you really look at the age of our population, the number of people that are going to be drawing social security in the very near future is going to drive social security broke unless we get some new contributors. it makes sense if they are going to pay into it. sure, it's the same contract that anybody that was born here has. we need people to start contributing to social security. mind you, there is still about 700 billion suspense fund within the social security system that we can't touch because it's been -- it's contributions from undocumented immigrants over the decades and decades and decades and that money is just sitting there and we can't touch it because we don't know who it belongs to. we ought to at least give them a chance to start paying into for retirement.
3:27 am
steve: he says the social security system is broken and if we had all these new people paying in maybe it would survive. >> what's interesting is that some illegal immigrants do pay into social security. the irs allows this. they don't tell ice about it and the system is still going broke. the trustees tell us social security will be bankrupt by 2034. ultimately the issue here is that we're talking about illegal immigrants paying into social security. we're not dealing with the crisis at the border. and the issue there is unless we get it under control, we have to stop incentivizing people to come here or we are never going to fix this. steve: kirsten gillibrand made it clear this is essentially the pathway to citizenship. this is something that has needed to be addressed by our congress for decades and, yet, and here's a member of congress who is saying, look, you make me president and i'm going to do my best to do. this she hasn't done anything regarding this as a sitting senator from new york state. >> oh, sure. listen. congress has been chickening
3:28 am
out for 19 years now. steve: yeah. >> not dressing the issue because it's a juicy political issue. we need a scapegoat to promote our politics. we have had democrat congress. we had republican congress in charge for six years. that could have passed any laws. no matter what. and they are not going to. so that is true. paying into social security doesn't get you citizenship or legal residency at all. as i said about is about 700 billion-dollar suspension fund where the irs and social security system has been receiving these payments. and we can't even touch it because we don't know who it belongs. to say. steve: rachel, i will give you the final word. >> i think dealing with this issue is the equivalent of -- rome burn the more we incentivize people come here, crisis at the border. sexual assault at the border. more drugs coming across the border. we will never fix the problem if we don't invent advise people. we need to fix the border first. >> we could fix it by not

4:02 am
unfit for office it was time for him to goened he a wanted a special counsel. now james comey is flip flopping. let's take a look at what he said then and we will tell you how he has changed. >> i woke up in the middle of the night on monday night because it didn't dawn on me originally that there might be corroboration for our conversation. there might be a tape. my judgment was i needed to get that out into the public square. i asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. didn't do it myself for a variety of reasons but i asked him to because i thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. steve: look what happened? jedediah: guess what? maybe there has been a little change from james comey. in a "new york times" op-ed he now writes even though i believe mr. trump is unfit to be president of the united states. i'm not write for mr. mueller to demonstrate is he a criminal. i'm also not rooting for mr. mueller to clear the president. i'm not rooting for anything at all exception that the special counsel be permitted to finish his work.
4:03 am
i have no idea whether the special counsel will conclude that mr. trump knowingly conspired with the russians in connection with the 2016 election or that he obstructed justice with the required corrupt intent. i also don't care. ed: he doesn't care after two years? really? jedediah: come on. if you believe that i have a bridge to sell you. that is ridiculous. steve: why would that be? maybe fast forward to today how many indictments have there been or people convicted regarding the trump-russia collusion thing. yeah, there haven't. and what about the obstruction of justice thing? ed: see what mueller has. steve: we would have known by now. come on it's washington, d.c. ed: here's the thing. chris hayes on msnbc a couple nights ago said can we trust the mueller report if it doesn't find collusion? wait a second, you have been among the people pumping up the mueller report he might have the goods. we heard adam schiff say two years ago there was
4:04 am
evidence. that's what schiff said there was evidence of collusion. two years later we are still waiting. maybe that's why some in the media are flip flopping because it's not fitting their narrative. jedediah: they did the same thing with james comey. first they hated james comey because how he handled hillary clinton and then they loved james comey because he doesn't like trump. they will love and hate mueller based on how much information he has that's negative on president trump. steve: only stuff we have heard about and i know the republicans make this their talking point only collusion we have seen with between the department of justice and the fbi and the democrats. keep in mind. all of this seemed to have started with this dossier that was essentially an oppo research paper funded by the democrats after the republicans originally started dirt on donald trump. and then just the fact that it was shopped around by a bunch of people in washington. will you please just look at this? and eventually it landed at the fbi and department of justice got involved. keep in mind. ladies and gentlemen, ilisa pagd
4:05 am
doors said they could not prove there was collusion before the mueller appointment. when mueller is talking about how he gave his notes to his college friend, so they would start a special counsel it wasn't for collusion because they had no evidence. it was for obstruction. fast forward now, there's no evidence we have seen of either. jedediah: now, of course, democrats when they talk about collusion the next word that comes out of their mouth is impeachment. we have interesting poll numbers from cnn on support for trump's impeachment. in december of 2018, it was at 43%. march of 2019 it had dropped to 36%. steve: seven points. ed: look among democrats. jedediah: december 2018. 80%. march 2019. 68%. each among democrats this has dropped. now, i think it's because people are looking and saying, look, a lot of same people say i originally supported. this i wanted you to look into this. sure, if there is collusion with russia it's legitimate.
4:06 am
now many have signed on and said you know what? it does look like a witch-hunt. ed: which is why the democrats should have signed on to it maybe the president shouldn't have been calling it a witch-hunt. if the mueller report ends up not finding corruption or collusion he might end up saying hey, mueller did a good job. steve: people are hopeful at the end of the process we hear from the inspector general and department of justice whether or not any corners were cut. whether or not there were any influences politically. we know that mueller fired strzok and page essentially from the investigation because of perceived bias. ed: the text messages that showed they didn't like the president and they are the folks who were investigating him. interesting because you have got this whole pack of democrats. it's a list of baker's dozen or so still growing in there trying to get the president's job. one of those folks is john hickenlooper the former democratic governor of colorado. he said something that almost sounds like common sense at the cnn town hall a
4:07 am
couple nights ago and yet, there has been a freak-out on the left. listen. >> governor, some of your male competitors have vowed to put a woman on the ticket. "yes" or "no," would you do the same? >> again, of course. but how come we are not asking more often the women would you be willing to put a man on the ticket? steve: he said afterwards he was trying to make the point that, too off, media discounts of a chance of a woman winning by asking such questions of men. they never ask that question or at least maybe i missed it but women i know feel that is a form of discounting that they are less likely to win the nomination. that is what i'm talking about he went on to explain. jedediah: he was actually he elevating women in his comment. they might have to be on the top of the ticket and figure out if they want me on there. it is crazy. we have a montage of media attacking him. take a listen. >> john hickenlooper's answer about the possibility of a female running mate sparking backlash.
4:08 am
>> i don't know what the heck he was talking about. there are a lot of democrats who feel that women haven't been given their just due. so when hickenlooper says things like that, is he basically dismissing those concerns. [laughter] >> craig, i don't even know how to reply to that 45 president have been men. i think it speaks for itself. >> it's one of those answers that you really groan at. i certainly did when i saw it i think i'm going to send governor hickenlooper a copy of those place mats with all the presidents' faces on them that are all men. >> they are missing the point. you had cory booker about a week ago and say i'm going to pick a woman. all these women are running and one of them is going to be my vice president. that to me is worse because he is assuming a man is going to win the top spot. steve: axios had a story yesterday that apparently joe biden's counsel of advisors are considering stacey abrams who had run for governor down in the great state of georgia.
4:09 am
that they would essentially preannounce before the convention, months before, which is the standard that she would be the ticket. ed: it would add a woman and someone younger and she is black. they are saying this would really balance things for biden. jedediah: don't pick me because i'm a female. that's the most condescending thing can you do. pick me because i'm the best woman for the job. are you going to pick a woman just because she is a woman? no. there are plenty of capable women out there that can do this job in a brilliant way. don't assume just because it's a woman they are the best person for the job. steve: one of the women running for president is elizabeth warren. you know, famously, elizabeth warren has taken some flack for her roll-out announcing her d.n.a. results and whatnot. last night, on the daily show, trevor noah actually took a shot at elizabeth warren and we wanted to play it for you this bite on this

4:35 am
for allah. that was their life's ambition ultimately are surrendering and now in refugee camps. whole other issue what you do with these guys. a testament to this president unleashing our military to crush identifies. steve: when he was running for president he said look, i'm going to make it a priority. isis got started on barack obama's watch. and. ed: they were the jv team. steve: junior varsity city team. he said he would do it. and people go yeah, sure. we have been trying and it's not working. what did he do specifically with his military commanders to get us to the point today where they are pretty much extinct. pete: loosen rules of engagement. push our advisors closer to the front lines. so they are not pulling triggers necessarily but they are right there with the guys that are. which has an emboldening effect. steve: they are able to use our technology. pete: they can use our technology and air support and ar artillery and weapons. our guys are right there with them as they move to the front line very different than being an

4:48 am
but he handily says there is no good way to fix it. it's a disdain a lot on the elites have in middle america. >> it's sort of shocking that it's sort of still there. maybe they haven't learned since 2016. look back at what krugman wrote on elections day a couple years ago. there turned out to be a huge number of people, white people he writes, living mainly in rural areas who don't stai share at all our idea of what america is about. for them it did about blood and soil. about traditional patriarchy and hierarchy. >> he sees people in the abstract. he doesn't see people as humans in a place and that talked about blood and soil. what he is objecting to is people who love the place that they are. and i think, again, what gave -- what the reason that trump won the primary is because when he said the american dream is dead. and this is what i write about in my book alienated america. when he said the dream is
4:49 am
dead. that resonated for people who has looked around at the place they love and said this used to be great. i want my place to be great again. and for a person like krugman who says you can just move out to another place, you can just change your suffering isn't real they don't see that as a legitimate desire my hometown i want it to be thriving and to have strong community institutions. ed: real quick, what does this mean for 2020? are democrats throwing up their hands and saying we can't get rural america? >> there is a lot of them are but iowa caucuses means a lot of them have to try. sherrod brown was the guy who had the most interesting stuff to say the senator from ohio. he dropped out. a lot of these people, i think you are going to see kamala harris and a lot of these people run against the deplorables. there is a couple guys maybe pete but the gay an but buttigi.
