3:06 am
we're a stronger country as a result of immigrants. no one is arguing that point. that is not the point to make when you're talking about stopping human trafficking and drug trafficking at the border and people who are breaking the law being incentivized to come over. that sounds like a great talking point to go out on the campaign trail. beto is out there talking it up. but that's not what's happening. you want to talking about legal immigration, let's have that conversation. he's not anti-immigrant he's talking about lawbreakers, many time who are criminals who are not being vetted properly and there's not a proper means by border patrol agents to try to take care of them. >> it's never illegal immigration, it's immigration and trump is anti-immigrant. when you look at the stats, most of these folks seeking asylum

joining me is need ryan. what's your reaction as someone who worked for president bush nchts thi.>> this is absurd to . and i also add to this, i had a grandfather who was a landing craft commander at d-day. i find in equating those massive sacrifices of 9/11 and d-day with their pet political agenda, many times driven by scientists who are on government grants as patrick moore pointed out. the climate crisis is a fake crisis. to equate those with the massive sacrifices with is unconscionable. the thing that's amazing is show shrill they're getting as the green new deal is tanking and continuing to lose traction with the democratic party. >> interesting point you make.
3:19 am
the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell brought it the green new deal and yes he did it without hearings. but you couldn't get the democrats to vote for it. they were running for the hills. doesn't that tell us why aoc are pushing big taxes and all of the rest to deal with climate change her own party is not there. >> they're no thereto. in fact again i would point out to people it was 57 to nothing every democrat voted gen against or voted present. they didn't have the guts to stand up for it. aoc says the world is going to end in 12 years and many don't have the guts to vote for it. socialists like aoc, everything they're bushing whether it's green new deal, all socialism, they're pushing this and they realize that most americans will not accept soacial socialism uns

3:26 am
wead. you say it starts with the lbj. >> we've had wars with mexico. lbj in modern times 1963, in 1969 nixon shut the border down and the "washington post" praised him for it. 1985 ronald reagan facing a similar problem shut the border down. he felt mexico had to be punished to be brought into line to help with the drug war. and then for all purposes the border was shut down after 9/11 by george w. bush. it wasn't literally shut down but almost. it was slowin slowed to a crawl. >> when you hear president trump talk about shght down the border does that shown like a good strategy? >> in my humble opinion donald
3:27 am
trump is a leader. a gutsy guy. it's what has to be done. donald trump is the art of the impossible. we've had all of this money going to central america to try to stop the traffickers and in some countries in central america the governments have become the narco traffickers and they're making different money by flooding our country with immigrants who will send back money to their re relatives in their country for hard currency. it's a real problem and we have to have those countries involved. >> in modern times we've gone through a lot. you rattled off lbj, nixon, reagan, george w. bush. what is the best comparison to what the president is proposing today? >> i think ronald reagan.
3:28 am
his point is they were covering up the murder and the government itself was involved and reagan was saying hey, we're not going to have this. he got into their pocketbooks and mexico cooperated. it was a bit of a turning point for a while. it's like sweeping an oas with a broom to deal with drugs. >> do you have any suggestions as ho how to handle the public relations. of course this will be tainted as president trump doing something that's never been done before, a catastrophic anti-immigrant measure. how does he present anytime a way that the american public realizes it's not unprecedented and it may be the only recourse at this point? >> i don't know. you've got the corporations that sponsor the national media making money off of this. they want cheap labor. they don't want to pay taxes that's why billionaires supported hillary clinton 20 to

1 in the last presidential election. so it's an uphill battle. but somehow the american people seem to be able to see through some of the his stair ya o his r the national media. that's the only hope he has. and twitter might work a little longer. >> his ability to project his perspective without a filter is certainly incredibly important and an an advantage that these previous presidents didn't have. >> that's right. >> doug wead thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> aoc has her own explanation of why she's criticized so much. >> nay nee they need to find anr woman to prop up and become a lightning rod. >> she may want to focus on the voters. next up, why her constituents are turning their backs on her. a veteran's heroic act to save the american flag goes viral.

4:48 am
>> absolutely. the i.d.e.a. ablght stands for y when i was bullied, because tourette's syndrome which is what you call an invisible disability, you can't see it, but the i.d.e.a. act not only protects people from disabilities from quote unquote of being bullied or abused by a teacher, but it also is what a child can disabilities have to fall under to get an iep. individualized education plan. that's how you get accommodations. so when i heard about the college scandal, the first thing i knew was oh no, they have pretty much used the i.d.e.a.

act in a way that is horrifying. everything i've fought for. it's unfathomable. one of the hardest things is watching these parents, able to do it, i'm also watching the reactions of the people in the disability community. and these parents have stolen the very strongest thing that keeps us going, which is they've stolen a lot of hope. it's already a fight to get. >> i want to thank you. we have to wrap on time. thank you for coming here and sharing your special story and fighting so hard for something that is passionate for so many people in light of how some of these issues have been abused by those who don't have disabilities and have taken things away from those who deserve them like extra time and what not. thank you so much. you have inspired so many, myself included. thank you.

jeh johnson, who was the homeland security chief for one barack obama, he's admitting what the president has said for a couple of years now: it is a crisis. pete: and why has the president been saying this? because he's been talking to the border patrol agents, he's been talking to d.h.s., been talking to mayors and getting facts on the ground so one particular quote caught our eye from usa today to this point. the mcallen city manager, roy rodriguez -- talking about a guy who's right on the front lines -- said it's staggering, really. we've never seen anything like this before under a title of trump threatens to close border. so as the looming -- as the border crisis continues and the threat to potentially shut down the border these mayors, city council members, are saying it's happening in my community right now . jedediah: the numbers are actually astounding when you look at them. 100,000 arrests, 1,000 average arrests a day, 162,260 total border apprehensions in fiscal year 2018. ed: it's even worse because some
5:04 am
days it's a thousand. that might be the average but even again jeh johnson a democrat has been saying there have been some days recently where i tell you, 4,000 a day. pete: i don't mean to correct, but if you go back to that full screen, that's just in one sector. that's just in the rio grande valley sector, which makes the jeh johnson comment fit because there's other places it's happening as well. and mcallen is in the rio grande valley so you've got -- i've been on that section of the border, on that border talking to border patrol agents. where they have a wall they're able to control the flow of people. you see the problem of asylum being thought. that's where unchecked illegal immigration happ.ns jedediah: stats aside we've been showing the footage of that as well so it's very hard to understand how i could ignore, a the stats, b, the voices of the people on the ground, in the border patrol. c, kirstjen nielsen has been out there. you could sayoc, she's part of the trump administration. but listen to the border patrol and look at the footage shown on the news of people swarming the border.
5:05 am
this conversation about asylum seekers and are people abusing that system, this is a very serious issue, and if you care about the national security of the country and you care about people who live in those towns right by the border, american citizens you have to look at this seriously and at least acknowledge -- pete: do you -- just yet beto robert francis o'rourke officially launched his presidential campaign, had three stops in texas. he doesn't appear to be listening or looking. he said this in el paso yesterday. >> we are safe not despite the fact that we are a city of immigrants and asylum seekers. we are safe because we are a city of immigrants and asylum seekers. ed: and look. if you are seeking asylum, legitimate, absolutely, and we've got to go through the process. i think among other things the president is saying there are so many seeking asylum now it's hard to sort out for the border payroll who are simply trying to do their job. who is legitimate and who is not
5:06 am
not? who is trying to hide in there and use the fact that there's an overflow of asylum seekers who may be legitimate and take advantage of that -- terrorists, drug dealers, the rest. jedediah: for me it was very important that jeh johnson came out, though. he was on can a view owe yesterday. undersecretary to obama. remember because he comes from the obama administration people who are not inclined to listen to the trump administration mube giving him a second look. >> by anyone's definition, by any measure right now we have a crisis at our southern border. according to the commissioner of cbp there were 4,000 apprehensions in one day alone in past week and we're on pace for 100,000 apprehensions on our southern border this month. that is by far a greater number than anything i saw on my watch in my three years as secretary of homeland security. pete: ed, you, you and i saw him in the lobby before he talked with neil cavuto, this is common sense, it's obvious. ed: for not playing politics and
5:07 am
saying look, i'm someone who served in a democratic administration but i looked at the same facts that president trump is looking at and actually the facts have gotten worse. great to jeh johnson for speaking out. jedediah: my question is will folks in the media who tend to lead toward favoring the obama administration, you know, badgering president trump, will they look at this and say wait a second, it's harder for us to take this stand when you have someone from our team saying.it pete: there aren't the facilities for it so people are being released even earlier in the hope so they show up for a hearing that many never show up for. it just compounds the problem. ed: so democrats have spent a long time not listening to the facts that president trump has presented about the crisis at the border. they've also ignored the president tweeting, talking publicly for months and months now about problems that the f.b.i., the justice department and all the rest in terms of how the entire mueller investigation started, what went on in terms of abuses of power. suddenly now that parts of the mueller report have trickled out and we found out there was no
5:08 am
collusion conspiracy and that they are not going to pursue obstruction of justice, ruud was on justice with judge jeannine last night saying it's time to look at the democrats. it's time to crack down on those abuses. watch. >> what are they doing this for? somebody made this up, jeannine. somebody conceived this and they superimposed it and then they went out to try to prove it and we have to find out who's the brains behind this. i think we need a justice department investigation of who tried to perpetrate a fraud on the american people. >> why haven't we heard about, or from, christopher steele, the people from fusion gps, glenn simpson, all the people -- >> they should all be in in jail jail. why is mccabe running around selling his book when he should be in jail for perjury? why is ohr and his wife -- he should be in jail for and maybe bribery. ed: mccabe of course a reference to andy mccabe who is on his
5:09 am
book tour saying the president might be an agent of russia. he said that before we got the facts. jedediah: i had ruud on the show yesterday and i brought up the obama administration. i said you have to ask, what did president obama know, what did he know about the start of this investigation? what did he authorize? these are all valid questions. as we now find out, what was the justification for this lengthy investigation to begin with? pete: the justification of the lengthy investigation should have been the fact that mueller mueller's scope should have included that, if there was a ruse or a hoax to create, then that's part of -- in fact, that's part of empowering russia russia's influence or the perception of their influence on our process. it's all fed into it. well, there's still folks clinging to the mueller report. the chief clinger himself is eric swalwell, what's it called, collusion clinger. that's not my phrase. that's from joe conchy yesterday on our program. he's saying even though the mueller report is out he wants to see more of it. he's going to subpoena the un unredacted version of that report. listen. >> if william barr refuses to release it full and unredacted,
5:10 am
will the democratic leadership subpoena it? will adam schiff subpoena it? >> yes. the president is outnumbered now in that the voters gave us, you know, a balance of power over these abuses of power. they gave us that subpoena power this past november. so we'll subpoena it it. but we're also confident that if we have to go to the courts because of the judicial precedent that exists through watergate -- ed: a lot of that is false. eric swalwell clinging as you said -- jedediah: for dear life. ed: -- to keep what is a false narrative alive. joy reed there at msnbc starts the question: "if the attorney general refuses to release an un unredacted version." no one believes it's sensible for the attorney general to release an unredacted version, the whole report. there's grand jury material in there. it'd be against the law to put that out there, we've heard that again and again. and there also may be -- we haven't seen it yet -- but sensitive classified information about the russia-u.s.
5:11 am
relationship, what they were doing. so to say that you have to release the entire report is nonsense. jedediah: you got to wonder if the desperation will ever end. the 2020 campaign manager, he went on the record and talked about the left holding on to the russia collusion. take a listen. >> they have sold this narrative so much and so many congressmen and people in the media and so many people have done so much to try to sell this like it was fact when there was zero fact, zero fact of collusion. i don't know if there's a tactic that's directed to, hey, you lied about this, you lied about that. but look. i think it does show what the democrats are capable of. i think it shows the false narrative they're doing. i mean, i completely think that they're willing to lie 100 percent for anything because they can't fight this president on policy. pete: later in the program we'll talk about a new washington post poll that shows that 60% of democrats don't believe mueller. that means that 60% of americans say, "no, no, no, this whole report" -- ed: they used to say mueller is the greatest thing since sliced bread. jedediah: the key line there was that they can't beat the president on policy.
5:12 am
key. when the economy is doing well, when you have people wanting a secure border, they don't know what to do. what are they talking about, late-term abortion and endorsing it and president trump and investigating him. that's really all i've heard from them as of late. and open borders. ed: we'll have live guests talking about all these big issues. jedediah: big headlines for you. this man in a nathaniel owens is charged with kidnapping a south carolina student. she got into the car he was driving thinking it was her uber-. hunters later discovered her body in the woods near her home. police found blood in the car. josephson was a senior at the university of south carolina. a decorated navy s.e.a.l. is moved out of solitary confinement av his brother made this plea on fox & friends yesterday. >> i'm almost in disbelief because it's been a seven month fight. he has been tragically behind bars in that terrible place and

♪ pete: chicago prosecutors dropping all charges against jussie smollett following his alleged hate crime hoax setting off a firestorm across the country. in chicago police now planning a protest at the prosecutor's office tomorrow. here with more as one of those protesters, martin pride, second vice president of the fraternal order of police, chicago lodge 7 7. martin, thanks for joining us
5:18 am
this morning. update our viewers on where we are on this case right now. >> well, right now we're still in sort of a media frenzy about it. miss foxx, kimberly foxx published a difficult to understand explanation of what she did in the chicago tribune. doesn't make any sense. it doesn't address the key issues. and so that's -- we're -- we're grateful that the federal authorities are going to look into it. we believe that it's very important to find out what happened here and we're going to look at our own legal options to get this case back into court and back through the legal process, which is what -- what it should have done to begin with. pete: i know police in chicago are outraged. they felt like preferential treatment, back door deals. kim foxx, the prosecutor, wrote it in the chicago tribune on friday. vote wrote "claims that the
5:19 am
outcome of this quote as quote exonerated him are simply wrong. he's not been found innocent so why isn't smollett in prison or at least on trial in my office felt that the likelihood of securing a conviction was not certain." she also went on to see she's open to an independent or outside review of this. your reaction to that? >> well, i mean, what is it, then? he's not resolved, it is resolved? and not likely to have a conviction? what does that mean? i think i could probably find five or six hundred detectives in chicago and as many attorneys and former prosecutors who would laugh at that statement. i mean, the evidence seemed overwhelming. and, you know, prosecutors aren't supposed to just toss in the towel for arbitrary reasons. you know, if you have evidence, you have a good investigation, you go forward with it. this is a hate crime.
5:20 am
hate crimes, you know, have to be legitimate. they're important legislation to protect people from terrible crimes; so it's nonsense. pete: it could have been distracted potentially many man-hours of pursuing other things for the chicago p.d. you feel like she's running effectively against the chicago police department. why? >> yes. well, because this is the tip of the iceberg. there's other scandals that we've complained to federal authorities and said they need to -- she's let people out of prison on murder convictions that we think were baseless and she should not have done so. these were horrible murders. she vacated the convictions of a spanish covert gang member from 20 years ago. why is a prosecutor vacating 20 20-year-old convictions of a gang member that will allow him to take in the country? pete: martin we've got to go. keep us updated on this case.

5:26 am
too few." >> well, apparently he's ignored the facts. that is after all what i found is the message that democrats ignore reality, deny the facts because the facts are this: the bottom half of the income spectrum are seeing their wages grow twice as fast as those at the top. why? because of trump's free market policies. we have historic low unemployment for african-americans and hispanics. this is the best economic time on record. 71% said that in the cnn poll that the economy's in good shape shape. so if beto wants to take an economic message, by all means please bring that to us. we are ready and equipped at the trump campaign. ed: jason, what about that? >> i think one of the economic messages that both is talking about is paying teachers more. we have teachers who have to drive uber, who aren't able to make ends meet. he's talking about health care, which in many cases the trump administration is tried to cut health care. this is gonna be hurt our economy, hurt people, put people into bankruptcy and he's saying that we need a change and i
5:27 am
think that he and many of the people on the lofty are sending the right message to the american people. ed: first i want to tress you, jason, on this idea, when i asked you about the economy and what beto o'rourke is saying, you said he wants to pay teachers more. but what about caylee said, the substance? wages are going up for people. how can you and beto o'rourke and other democrats claim the economy is not helping people, when we have record low unemployment for african-americans, hispanics, others, and wages are going up for folks? >> well, again, ed, you know, we're going to disagree on why our economy is going well. we know that there's -- ed: are wages going up? yes or no. >> there are many projections that say that we're headed actually in the wrong direction and saying that we're going to shut down the border is going to hurt our economy even more, it's going to hart farmers, it's going to hurt dairy farmers in california. so the president i think he benefits from, you know, some economic trends that have been happening even before he was president. and he's going to actually hurt us in other ways. ed: he's been on the job for two
5:28 am
years. caylee, i'll give you a crack at that but i also want to press you on health care 'cause jason made a point that the president president's approach to health care may backfire and your chance to respond. >> sure. there you go again. democrats denying the facts. jason said president trump is restricting health care choice. absolutely not, because of president trump finally consumers have access to cheaper short-term plans, association health care plans, prescription drugs, consumers save $26 billion last year because of trump. democrats want to go the way of socialist medicine to have fewer choice, less access to care, higher costs. for a decade we've had disaster under obamacare, health care costs increasing. this year premiums are leveling because of president trump and free market policies. there's more to be done but eliminating insurance is not the answer. ed: there's a point there about kamala harris did call for the end of private insurance. you've got others calling for medicare for all. how you going to pay for all
5:29 am
that? >> i think there are many ways to pay for it. number 1, we know that just by eliminating the paperwork you're going to save $400 billion per year. so there are -- ed: wait a second, paperwork is going to get you $400 billion? >> it absolutely is. fact check me. i'm absolutely certain about that. ed: what else you got on health care, then? >> you know, of course president trump, he doesn't even have a plan. he's talking about eliminating obamacare but has nothing to back it up. and about 20 million people are going to lose their health insurance. and that's -- >> that's false. how many americans are going to lose your health insurance when you eliminate private insurance? you want government takeover. you want a governor take over insurance. look at canada, look at the u.k. look at the wait times, look at the number of people who have died waiting for care. let's not bring that to our shores. let's allow competition across state lines, bring down costs
5:30 am
and let the american consumer choose, not the federal government choose who gets health care, when, and how. ed: jason, last point. >> everyone should get health care. that's what people on the left are talking about. instead of us choosing -- >> sure. we agree with that. >> -- and 20 million people losing their health care, which is what the trump administration and caylee's side are advocatin. >> that's just false. ed: does the the president have a plan, caylee? >> absolutely he has a plan. opening up the free market. i'm saying opening up the free market, allowing competition across state lines, choosing like the model of graham-cassidy graham-cassidy. it's -- ed: we'll see the details in the days ahead. appreciate you both coming in. the president is threatening to shut down the border. we've been talking about that, but the media melting down. >> what donald trump through twitter is doing is threatening to just close the border and essentially blaming mexico. ed: an expert weighs in on the impact of the border when you've

jedediah: kelsey bolar is a senior writer at the heritage foundation. welcome, kelsey. the media coverage has the rule been something to behold when it comes to the border. what do you think of the latest? >> what's frustrating is when the media does decide to finally cover the crisis happening down on our southern border, they do it with an anti-trump agenda. it's like a game to them where they cover the border crisis when they can somehow attempt to twist the story to make it out to seem that this is president trump's fault the way migrants are being treated when the fact is president trump and the trump administration have been screaming to congress doing everything in their power; so would argue too much in their power, to bring all the attention in the world to the lack of resources they have to deal with the massive number of migrants who are coming on a daily basis. we saw this week over 4,000 migrants in one day.

former obama d.h.s. secretary jeh johnson said it used to be a bad day when he was dealing with 1,000 people crossing the border border. so it truly is a crisis, and it's frustrating to watch the media cover it as if this is somehow president trump's fa.lt pete: they almost do it accidentally when they're fair about it. the usa today today talk about trump possibly shutting down the border and said "texas overwhelmed by migrants." you see reporters standing in front of border gets a as if they're getting the ground truth truth. in reality oftentimes the border patrol agents, those agents themselves are never talked to. >> right. and what we really need the media to do right now is to go down there in person and report on what's happening down there, including the criminal organizations that are smuggling children and women across the border. where's the #metoo movement for all the women and girls that are being assaulted and raped as they cross the border? this is a humanitarian crisis happening and, you know, conveniently the media ignores that part. jedediah: do you think that jeh
5:48 am
johnson coming out and speaking and sort of backing up the fact that it is a crisis for the president, do you think that changes the media dynamic in terms of how they cover it? because this is, you know, their guy, this is someone from an administration they respect and admire. does that change the way they cover this at all? >> i hope it does. that certainly was a big moment from my perspective and it was certainly needed. he's someone who has been there dealing with this and he's saying, hey, we need to get past the politics and realize this is actually a crisis. and the president of the united states no matter who he or she is can only do so much. it is really up to congress to address this crisis. and democrats consistently are trying to avoid talking about this, and the media really needs to press them. "well, what would you do to solve this?" because republicans -- president trump have proposed solution after solution, and democrats, all they want to focus on is collusion delusion. pete: that's right. kelsey, you pretend like the

displaying signs of meningitis, what else are you to do in a situation like that? >> right. right. i think that's what is so often frustrating to health care providers and law enforcement when stories like this go public and it's very alarming to see police knocking down a door and removing children from a situation. but what i want the public to understand is you're only seeing such a small portion of what the story is that's going on. and we fiercely, fiercely defend patient's rights to privacy. so with hipaa laws, health care providers cannot come forward and tell the complete story of what led up to making that decision, along with d.c.s. when they're getting involved in these cases, we can't come forward and tell public what's really going on. ed: you were raised in an anti- anti-vaccination household. talk about what you learned, your personal transformation and how that has led you to become an advocate. >> right. i was just raised in a community that was very concerned about

vaccines, and so as i became a pediatric nurse practitioner and really reviewed the evidence for myself, that's when i started changing my mind. and, you know, cases like this are scary because when a child comes to us with 105 degree fever, the differential diagnosis for a child that's not vaccinated is very scary and alarming for serious illnesses like meningitis. you know, this child with meningitis, it can kill children in 12 hours or less; so time was absolutely of the essence, and that is why this health care provider had to legally report this case to the authorities and that's when the authorities intervened. jedediah: i am empathetic with parents who are concerned about the bundling of vaccines, concerned about some of the by-products in vaccines, and are concerned about parental rights and worry that what's going to be next, are they going to mandate a flu vaccine and i'm going to have to give that to my

kansas secretary of state kris kobach joins us to react. kris, thank you very much for being here this morning. so part of the plan is potentially to shut down the border but also to cut off aid to these three central american countries. why? >> the president was absolutely right, and the reason, pete, is that the governments of these countries have been willfully looking the other way, as over time, tens of thousands in each caravan but hundreds of thousands year after year are leaving these countries and coming to the united states. why are they looking the oh -- the other way? because they don't have a welfare safety net like we do. so they come up here and send money home to their relatives in the form of remittances. meanwhile, we the taxpayers have been paying, writing big checks in the form of foreign aid to these governments who are injuring us, and finally president trump has done what previous presidents should have
