2:01 am
one thing we are concerned on illegal immigration, is the economy. shutting down the border with third largest trading partner would have a pretty massive impact not in actual trade but psychological damage it'll do. there's a lot of other ways that we can handle this. >> we have fox team coverage on this, jeff paul following the situation at the border from west coast news room but we begin with ellison barber who is reporting from west palm beach near the president's home at mar-a-lago, ellison. >> good evening, rick, yeah, president trump is not backing away from threat to shutdown the u.s.-méxico border even though some members of his own party say it would be a bad idea, in a new tweet, president trump said, quote, méxico must use strong immigration laws to stop many thousands of people trying to get into the usa, detention are maxed out. next step to close the bored. president trump threatened to close the southern border in the past but he never actually did it.
2:02 am
he also never set any sort of time frame for when he potentially would shut it down, he talked about before government shutdown in december but yesterday he offered a time frame saying it could happen next week. >> if they don't stop them we are closing the border, we'll close it and keep it close for a long time, i'm not playing games, méxico has to stop it. they have people coming right through méxico. very likelihood that i will close border next week and that'll be fine with me. >> senator dianne feinstein says the president needs to stop with ridiculous threats and senior senator from california said méxico is the united states' third biggest trading partner accounting for $1.6 billion in two-way trade each, trade would crash to screeching halt. border patrol says u.s. immigration system is at breaking point, many migrants are families coming from central
2:03 am
america. president trump has previously cut northern triangle, guatemala, el salvador and honduras. yesterday, mr. trump said he did. >> right now we have two big caravans from guatemala. i've ended payments to guatemala, honduras and el salvador, no money goes there anymore. we were giving them $500 million, we were giving them tremendous aid, we stopped payments to honduras, to guatemala and to el salvador. we were paying them tremendous amounts of money and we are not paying them anymore because they haven't done a thing for us, they set up these caravans. >> president shutting down southern border is rare but not unprecedented. in 1963 after president kennedy was assassinated, president johnson and u.s. immigration services temporarily shut down the southern border stopping people coming and going from the
2:04 am
country to try and find kennedy's killer but one thing is that méxico was on board with that, she issued orders of their own as well, here in this situation with this latest threat, méxico is not on board with it. today many people are questioning the legality of potentially closing all of the u.s.-méxico border as well as having questions about what that might entail with things like air travel would be included, impact american citizens who are abroad, so president trump has not offered additional details on that and neither has the white house, rick. >> ellison, thank you. the president's threats, cities near border bracing as some democrats acknowledged the situation at the border needs to be addressed somehow. >> by anyone definition, by any measure, right now we have a crisis at southern border. according to commissioner of cbp, there were 4,000 apprehension in one day alone this past week and were on pace
2:05 am
for 100,000 apprehensions on southern border this month. that is by far greater number than anything i saw on my watch. >> jeff paul in west coast bureau with more on this, jeff. >> rick, this could compromise a $1.7 billion a day we trade with méxico according to u.s. chamber of commerce, the group also says it would be, quote, an unmitigated economic debacle that could threaten 5 million american jobs. the real impact should be felt in places like the super market where some of produce often comes directly from méxico, those being able to travel between two countries results could be devastated from san diego all the way to south texas. >> the president to come in, there's no order coming in and there's no jobs and that would devastate the economy here.
2:06 am
>> now, this is all happening after homeland security secretary kirstjen nielsen asked all dhs agents to go for emergency funding, migrant families trying to illegally getting in u.s. is giving them no choice but to directly release many of them. agents say they could hit hundred thousand arrests in march, the highest monthly total in a decade but in california arrests are up nearly 700% and in last few months governor newsom blames the president. >> legal asylum seekers being dumped in the bus stops, dumped in the streets while people are circling. >> in its international trip as governor newsom plans to visit central america next month to learn about immigration and its problems firsthand on the ground
2:07 am
and in regards to the president, talking about closing the border, méxico's foreign secretary wrote on twitter, méxico doesn't act based on threats and also saying méxico is the best neighbor the u.s. could have, rick. >> 700% in los angeles, thank you. democratic presidential candidate across texas today, kicking off his grassroots campaign in his hometown of el paso serial your today hoping to boost support in campaign in growing field of 2020 contenders, live in el paso, claudia. >> good evening, rick, the former texas congressman fired up the crowd of more than a thousand people who gathered here in downtown el paso and for about 45 minutes he touched on the familiar scenes like the need to battle climate change and universal health care and he also called for comprehensive immigration reform.
2:08 am
>> if you are really serious about security, we have a golden opportunity with republicans, independents, democrats alike to work on comprehensive immigration reform to rewrite this country's immigration laws in our own image with our own values and in the best traditions of the united states of america. >> and it was a busy day for some of the other declared democrats running for president, in iowa the state farmers union organized forum to hear from 5 contenders including elizabeth warren, amy klobuchar and julian castro, while gabbard made first visit to los angeles. recent polls show all the presidential hopefuls behind o'rourke and he's either third or tied for third behind bernie sanders and joe biden. and tonight the former vice president is sending off allegations that he kicked

2:10 am
but i saw it begin to bend. what we are now doing allowing the aca and the justice department is not defending the laws to have united states. this is a first in history. the justice department is not supposed to be partisan, they are supposed to be defending the laws of the united states. >> ray bogan has more on this. >> rick, good evening, it was a big week for president trump's healthcare policy, first in courts, federal judges ruled against the administration in multiple suits, that includes striking down medicaid work requirements, the administration also announced they would no longer defend the affordable care act in court saying they agree with the texas court ruling that it's unconstitutional. senator susan collins said she was against the administration's actions. >> if the administration is supposed to be aca include provisions to have law that do need to be fix, the answer is

2:12 am
nearly 400 page report but democrats are standing by their deadline of this coming tuesday for its release. president trump's attorney rudy giuliani says the full report will not offer anything incriminating. >> democrats are making absolute fools out of themselves. i mean, the report is clear as it can be, exoneration, i was a prosecutor for 18 years, i have seen letter it's clear, you can't quite reach the result what we have, probable cause to get indictment, all the other things, we can't prove a case, exoneration. >> david has the latest from washington. >> good evening, the clock is ticking, attorney general barr is working as quickly as possible to get report out, nearly 400 pages, redactions to cover sensitive information. barr says it will be sent to congress by mid-april, however, democrats are furious, they want it by april 2nd, that's a few

2:24 am
with update to mcat. >> i think it's imperative that pilots see the different screens in cockpit set-up, how it works, the response of, hey, don't worry about it, watch the video is the wrong answer. >> even before the ethiopian crash pilots complained about insufficient training and being unfamiliar with the 737 max controls, two pilots wrote in federal database, quote, it shouldn't be hard to figure out what i'm looking at and also the fact that this plane requires such jurying to fly is a red flag, but boeing would be hard pressed to call for a simulator training not one of the airlines in the united states even owns a 737 maximulator, boeing said there wasn't a need, boeing has not finished training package and faa has not yet approved it but regulators in other countries are already bucking the faa saying they will do
2:25 am

2:26 am
saying that there are enough changes here that maybe it's time to consider training. >> i think so. jackie, thank you. communities facing a long road to recovery after devastating flooding across the midwest, we take a look at the economic toll, watch this. >> i'mi'm not going to apologize for loving this country and being someone who benefited from free market. >> that wasn't my question. my question was whether you called the president -- i understand that, but called the president a foreign agent of the russians and i'm wondering -- seems to disavow that. >> have you read the report? >> no, but neither have you, right? >> despite robert mueller not finding evidence of trump-russia collusion, some democrats doubling down on claims, what it means as we await for the

>> that's what i would like to do. i have absolutely nothing to hide and i think a lot of things are coming out with respect to the other side and i have a lot of confidence in the attorney general. >> president trump backing attorney general william barr's decision to release a redacted version of the mueller report to the public by mid-april and the president says the white house doesn't have to see it first. welcome back to fox report, i'm rick levanthal in for jon scott, lawmakers are waiting details of the investigation as democrats question the special counsel's decision to defer to the attorney general on the question of obstruction. let's bring in john busse, fox news contributor, democrats clearly not moving on now after this mueller report came out and found no evidence of collusion,
2:32 am
they are now focusing on lack of conclusion on obstruction, is that fair for democrats to focus on that one point? >> yes yeah, for 2 years we are waiting for mueller report, we are still waiting for mueller report. we are still waiting for the report to be in hands of republicans and democrats and congress to evaluate. the democrats are saying, look, mr. barr is the attorney general but he's appointed by the president, we can't count on him to judge what's in the report, mueller specifically did not exonerate the president on the issue of obstruction of justice, he also said he didn't find sufficient evidence to carry forward a prosecution. but where does that leave him and where does that leave the investigation? that's a big question for congress at this point. >> well, and we've heard from republicans who say they want to shift to investigate the investigators, look back how the whole thing started and why, perhaps people in power wanted hillary clinton to win and not president trump and maybe that's how this whole thing launched.
2:33 am
>> yeah, the upside of what we know about the mueller report so far is that there was not collusion he found between the president, his campaign and russia. the downside is that there's still this ambiguity of the obstruction issue and there's delay in getting the report to congress. there's a discussion of redacting things, congress is not going to want that. it's also going to want to get the underlying testimony and all the underlying testimony that was in the report, that's also something mr. barks arr -- barr. >> is this sour grapes, people are waiting for mueller report to indict the president and it didn't, they are seizing on the one question mark and not moving forward? >> i think that's a position that republicans have taken that they are just dragging this out, the downside of this is that not a lot is getting done in washington, you're coming in the 2020 campaign, a lot of issues are on the table, this may be in
2:34 am
certain regard kind of a good thing for the democrats that they're not going to have to pursue impeachment but we don't know that. this hasn't been resolved. until the question of why mueller did not specifically decide whether or not there was obstruction, until that's decided, maybe as soon as the report comes out it's evident in the data, it's evident in all of the evidence that's presented. >> well, one person who is very fired up about this is rudy giuliani who is, of course, the president's attorney and here is what he had to say. >> they create these false impressions to the american people, they are like dishonorable salesmen, it's ridiculous to say to the american people, barr is delaying because he wants to delay. he's delaying because it is very difficult, i don't know if it's 200 pages. >> 400 pages. >> very difficult to put out 400 pages and all the legal
2:35 am
restrictions. >> is it fair to say that if there was evidence of obstruction that mueller would have revealed it? >> maybe. and maybe that's why he decided not to carry forward the prosecution, maybe it's kind of self-evident now but in the summary that barr put forward, he quoted mueller as saying, i can't carry forward the prosecution but i also can't exonerate it. this is the president's lawyer, this is the job of rudy giuliani to put the toughest spin on it. look, this is going to be resolved in a couple of weeks, barr is going to put as much forward as much as he feel comfortable. congress will not be happy with what he has put forward. maybe they'll be subpoena, ken star did get judge to release testimony to congress, same thing happened during nixon-watergate period, sooner or later we have the data and we understand why mueller decided the way that he did. not until then do you get resolution and that's the problem with the mueller report
2:36 am
so far. is that it did not put this thing to rest. >> well, there's been a lot of reactions to this and one of them came from donald trump, jr. who wrote op-ed in real clear politics, he calls the russia gate conspiracy a clown show and writes every president deals conspiracies, my father had to deal with media to spread false information about him in a failed attempt to overturn his election. your reaction to that, sir. >> i don't know. it's not the kind of son that you would want to have, look, you know, the law is the law. let's see what the lawyers ultimately decide, what mueller -- what mueller puts forward, what barr decides and all the lawyers in congress decide to actually focus on.
2:37 am
>> isn't this what this was supposed to be, didn't the lawyers decide and we don't have a decision in. >> we don't, we don't from mueller and that's the problem, that's the issue. i think that that gets clarified in the next few weeks. >> okay. >> a lot of culmination about it. this begins to die down hopefully soon. the decision becomes clear and the presidential campaign goes forward talking about issues and not about the mueller report. >> and maybe congress gets on with the business of the american people. >> a lot of it. a lot of it to do. >> john bussey from the wall street journal, thank you very much. the midwest with widespread devastation after the record flooding there, the damages are estimated upwards to $3 million already and the threat may not be over yet. adam. >> hey, big cold front sweeping across the country, pops right out at you, if you look at east coast, gorgeous day, new york city 64, all the way back to dallas, 54-degrees, the warm and cold air meet you typically get

2:39 am
attention, been such a soggy six weeks, we see the heaviest rain now moving across ohio river valley, ohio, pennsylvania, all of that closed down in mississippi river and they are still dealing with flooding, these are the flood advisories across large portions of the country, upper midwest, but all of this eventually has to work its way down to mississippi and everything here highlighted in green, flood warnings and watches, flooding still issue, as we take a look at temperatures, it does cool off a little bit, sunday and monday but it is spring, bouncing back, the roller coaster of spring is underway. >> a lot to keep up with, adam klotz, flooding is having ripple effects, higher gas prices weeks before summer driving season, madeline rivera has this story.
2:40 am
>> starting to see, giving people to assess destruction of floods that inundated the region but the consequences go beyond the heartland, people across the country could feel the pinch of the pump. >> it is going to impact pocketbooks and impact our environment. >> the problem lies with the transportation of ethanol commonly made by corn, shipped on key rail lines, it's blended with refinery made fuel but railroad tracks have been damaged from the flood. >> they can't get it to the market, 15% destruction. but companies like union, with no specific timeline as to when they'll be back up and running. >> there's a handful of ethanol facilities that are temporarily halted or have certainly reduced output. >> valero in texas market, switched to nonethanol
2:41 am
balloonedded this week. >> we are seeing direct reflection of shortage of ethanol in ethanol prices being escalated in the market. >> still others say there's no need to be alarmed just yet. >> it's our hope that the ethanol that's in storage in the gulf coast region and in across the nation is going to be sufficient to -- to tie those markets over until the rail lines get reopened and things get back to more normal operating conditions. >> as railroad companies work to restore service, the u.s. army corps of engineers to repair levies, can be completed within the next 6 months, in parksville, missouri, madeline rivera. >> a couple of states having their say on single-use plastic bag and the controversy can be coming to a convenient store near you.
