and he is going to come out. michigan state is headed to minneapolis. ♪ uptown funk. ♪ saturday night. ♪ don't believe me just watch. brian: saturday night. steve: this is more of a midtown funk than uptown, don't you think? we are midtown. brian: charging for midtown funk because there is going to be a congestion crisis. ainsley: talking about the budget in new york city. if you live here, you will be paying a lot more money. if you come here as a tourist you will be paying more too. brian: we want to tax you until you stop coming and people stop living here. steve: listen, by the way. if somebody tells you something today that just seems too unbelievable, don't believe it it's april 1st. april fools day, everybody. thank you for joining us live. ainsley: i hope we don't have anything planned. i remember taking that box off and brian was hiding underneath the table and scared me to death.
3:02 am
steve: what's going to happen the next three hours, you have to stick around to find out. we leave things off with a fox news alert. ainsley: president trump could shut down the u.s.-mexico border this week as the administration is cutting off funding to three central american countries are. >> it certainly isn't a bluff. you can take the president seriously. we are on track this month to close to 100,000. we have never seen a surge like this. brian: so here we go. desperate times, desperate measures. griff jenkins joins us live from washington to break it all down. hey, griff, if anyone knows the border and the problem, it's you. everyone seems to realize we are in a crisis. >> well, you know, it's story after story of more and more migrants coming when the president says he is going to close the border, he is not bluffing. bluffing acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney explains why. >> why are we talking about closing the border? because not for spite and not to try and undo what's
3:03 am
happening. but to simply say, look, we need the people from the ports of entry to go out and patrol in the dessert where we don't have any wall. griff: here are the facts. cdp says 40% of their agents are being diverted from the border security mission to care for family units and children. closing the border could have a heavy economic impact. warn it would affect $107 billion of cross border trade. these numbers, again, are targeting on pas for over 100,000 apprehensions for the month of march. as of last night, guys, my source at border patrol in just the rio grande valley sector alone for the past nine straight days they have seen more than 1,000 apprehensions per day. a caravan a day. most of them coming from an area known as the northern triangle, el salvador, guatemala and honduras. the president says he is cutting $500 million of aid to these countries. the president took a shot at
3:04 am
mexico and democrats are not doing enough saying the democrats are allowing a a ridiculous asylum system and loopholes as a main stay of our immigration system. mexico is likewise doing nothing. homeland security is being so very nice but not for long. visa program for 2500 migrants in southern mexico on a limited basis. you will remember it was shut down earlier due to overwhelming numbers across mexico's southern border. steve: it was. griff, you said tupper perfectly. we have been talking for a while, there a humanitarian crisis at our southern border. and if the president were to close our southern border, it would cause an economic crisis as well. because there are so -- there is so much that goes between our two countries. you know, the auto parts, that go to make the american cars that are built in mexico. all the food that is trafficking between the united states and mexico and central america; you know, there is a real good
3:05 am
possibility that if the president did close the border, it would disrupt the supply chains for car makers, it would trigger swift price increases for the grocery stores. impact layoffs. and impact a lot of the states that the president won in 2016. i think he knows it i think he knows that there would be economic consequences. and this is just a play to get mexico and the triangle countries to do something. because, it's up to them. ainsley: mick mulvaney was talking about the problems. he blames the democrats because they won't give him additional money and additional people. they won't change the laws. we had a panel on last week or the week before all women border patrol agents and they were saying we need more people. we need more agents. what they are having to do is take agencies from the port of entries and place them in areas like the dessert where there aren't any walls. they don't have the extra money to hire more people. brian: the county city manager said this to "u.s.a. today." it's staggering really. we have never seen anything like this before. the numbers don't lie.
3:06 am
they are expecting over 100,000 illegals this month. 65,000st last month. senator lindsey graham weighed in yesterday. what are we supposed to do? you have the mexican government allowing thousands of people walk all across mexico. mexico could help more. they should help more. the triangle countries, 70% of the people coming here illegally come from three countries. we need those countries to help more. so, if the president feels like that the only way to control this problem is to move the people from the port of entry to the ungoverned spaces where we need a wall, i will support him. i hope we don't have to do that. to my democratic friends. let's set down and change these laws that entice people that come here illegally. steve: good luck. brian: the president's tweem tweet over the weekend was 100 percent right. these are asylum laws that can be solved very quickly. they have to come together on this. the turning point was maybe jeh johnson when he said a couple days ago listen there is a crisis at our border.
3:07 am
there is no question about it these numbers are really concerning. steve: yeah. brian: that gives democrats cover to say hey, we have no choice. after all the wall decision has been decided. whether you like it or not it's in the courts and it's actually being built. taking money and let them debate it in their committee meetings. the most controversial part for democrats was the wall. it shouldn't be controversial to stem the tide of illegals coming. in doesn't mean they are not great people. it means we have to set up a system makes it orderly to get in and out. steve: the problem is that would give -- democrats would be handing donald trump a win. look, not only did he get a wall, he also got a wins a well. you know, i think if i had to guess it, would be easier to gte mexico and the triangle countries, to do something than to get their own -- our own congress to get together on the same page. ainsley: we have to see. also in the news, the attorney general william barr said he is going to release the full mueller report in two weeks or sooner. the media is hitting him so hard for this. bria an: it't some of these headline's, fox said
3:08 am
why barr is delaying in releasing the report is unreasonable and unprecedented. politico said william bar can't hide the mueller report. brian: they said up an artificial deadline to deliver the 300 plus pages. tomorrow now. he said no, i will get it to you in the middle of april. doubling down is nadler no, i'm not backing off my date. you back off your date. he is not done yet. have you got to redact and care about people's security. there is portions of this just not going to be released as trey gowdy brought up earlier. i'm not going to break the law because jerry nadler is frustrated that he didn't get the outcome he seems to want to get and that's proof what he believes the president skyrocketing in russia. here is don jr. yesterday, who sat down with on media buzz and said listen this whole coverage has been so skewed and they got major things wrong especially on my trump tower meeting. watch. >> i think there were some
3:09 am
people that tried to actually be fair. when they were actually fair, you would see the other side just try to obliterate that they lost their following. they get ratiod to heck. it became a business model for most media to attack donald trump. and to buy into this narrative. and if you didn't, you upset a lot of the people and risked your career. you risked other things. they did a terrible disservice to this country, to journalism as a profession. i think they have done irreparable damage to the faith that the average american is going to have in terms of mainstream journalism. i think it's blight on our republic. on democracy, and on our constitution that's not going to come undone very quickly. steve: i think average american understands there have to be things that are going to be redacted. grand jury testimony, things that are controversial and classified. they are okay with that. democrats need some cover. they need to be able to say look, here is this 300, 400
3:10 am
page thing and a bunch of the stuff is blacked out. what secrets are they keeping from us. ainsley: the president feels vindicated though. he tweeted out last week fake news media going crazy suffering major breakdown zero credibility and corrupt. brian bine a lot of you concerned about tax souse move out of the high tax state. studio is here and we are coming to work every day. steve: let's move. brian: new york's idea to raise more rev my overstretched because social programs are too big and unwe wouldy. they decided they have ways to make ends meet. guess what cost all of us money in every way, shape, or form. steve: that's right. >> screen left the toll tax. that's the congestion pritszing, first in the nation between 11 and $12 per car. $25 per truck. a study says it's going to cost 133s dollars for each 18-wheeler hauling food and goods into manhattan. ainsley: you are going to get paid to sit in traffic. or you are requesting to pay. sorry, you are going to pay to sit in traffic. steve: if you can live here
3:11 am
you live in a nice house. brian: a mansion tax manhattan homes that sell for 25 million or more. steve: 2 million. brian: they will go elsewhere. you will have less mansion owner, the. ainsley: there is going to be an internet sales tax. if you shop at any store in new york you can't take your goods home in plastic bags. they are banned. steve: single use plastic bag is gone. you can bring your own recycled bag. they are going to charge you 3 cents per paper bag but then the locals and the mayor here has already said i'm going to tack 2 more cents on. nickel per paper bag. brian: here is how stupid this is when people come into the city, they are not doing it because they want to see a broadway show. they are going to deliver food, delivering goods, they're helping out to hotels, delis, bodegas, guess what happens? they have very little margin of profit. they have to jack up their food prices on every day blue collar people who want to get a ham sandwich or turkey sandwich with mayo or a wrap. they will charge more for
3:12 am
that, because it costs more to deliver that it will be cascading hit on everyone. and nobody gains. you get more money to pay into an abyss. steve: wrong. do you know who gains? florida. new yorkers are up here. why am i paying. brian: and texas. steve: paying so much in taxes. let's go to florida. anyway, what do you think about that? email us we are also on facebook. ainsley: jillian: i shouldn't have bought all those mansions. ainsley: when you commute you have to come into the city above 60th. jillian: that's right. ainsley: you don't get the tax. steve: or swim across the river. ainsley: take the train across the river. get get get you caught up on news. two marine pilots are killed in a helicopter crash during a routine training mission in arizona. the pilots were flying an ah 1 z viber at the air force station near huma. note be families before releasing the name of those

steve: president trump says the republican party will soon be known as the party of hurricane. so thi party -- of healthcare. taking a look how to make the system better for everybody. ainsley: president for foundation of research of equal opportunity obek roy.
3:18 am
thank you for being with us. >> ainsley, how are you? ainsley: i'm good. thank you. tell us about the healthcare system. what is broken first of all? >> a lot of things are broken. what comes down to at the end of the day is healthcare for america is too expensive for everybody. that's why so many people struggle with their bills. it is the federal government that has made it so expensive. steve: sure. my daughter has obamacare she can't afford to use it the premiums are through the roof. she never meets them. she winds out paying out of pocket. that's now how it's supposed to work. avic, lawmakers may be watching right now what could be done to fix it. >> first thing to know when the president campaigned for president and became president he promised his healthcare program we would have healthcare for everybody. there are plans out there to do that. bruce westman representative from arkansas put out a plan fair care act that tackles a lot of the problems with the healthcare system. again, the things that make
3:19 am
it so expensive. tackle high hospital prices, high prescription drug costs and high cost of insurance both for obamacare and other people who get insurance through more traditional means. ainsley: what can republicans do to actually become the party of healthcare? >> you have to tackle hospitals. high cost of prescription give people more control over their own healthcare dollars so they're not actually subject to all these regulations that drive up the cost of health insurance. both for people on obamacare and not on obamacare. steve: when bernie sanders and others say we are for medicare for all, it sounds great, but is that doable? >> well, what they're supporting is not actually medicare. it's a single payer plan that will be very different from the way medicare works today. you know, about half of every class that graduates
3:20 am
in 65 and gets on medicare today. they are choosing private insurance. they are not choosing government run insurance. the program called medicare advantage is the program where all the growth and medicare is bernie sanders plan would take that away from people. the real solution, i think the solution that republicans support, is one that builds on what medicare advantage does well, using private insurers to compete against each other so the quality of your coverage is better. ainsley: avic thank you for being with us. jane fonda protested the vietnam war. hanoi jane just got inducted into the national women's hall of fame. >> develop capabilities intended to contest our movement across all domains and disrupt our ability to project power. steve: retired general david perkins says he is absolutely right. is he going to tell us how we can return to dominance coming up next. good morning. ♪

general joe dunford wanting russia and china's efforts to dominate the u.s. could mean trouble straight ahead. >> china and russia have capitalized on our distraction in restraints by investing in capabilities specifically designed to challenge our traditional sources of strength. after careful study. the developed capabilities intended to contest our movement across all domains sea, air, space, cyber space and land and disrupt our ability to project power. brian: are we losing our competitive edge and did you sense some real concern there amongst our top brass? joining us now retired army four star general just retired and former commander of the u.s. army training and doctrine command general james perkins is back with us. great so he sue. >> great to see you as well. brian: general dunford said look out, everybody, watch out for what? >> general dunford nailed it on the head. they understand our adversaries, potential adversaries realized.
3:26 am
what we do better than everybody else, we can deploy power. we can sustain and it we operate across all domains. air, sea, space, cyberspace, land. like nobody else does. so you can see a lot of investment, specifically by russia and china in areas that would prevent us from operating and synchronizing those demains which is right before i retired the command i was with we put out a new operational construct called multidomain operations to make sure we maintain dominance. brian: what are you talking about, areas? >> domains operate like air, land, domain, cyberspace, space. what we have to do is not just bookend ourselves into one domain but operate across all of them and synchronize all of them together. brian: he went on to say. he says that china and russia are capitalizing on our distractions and restraints by investing in capabilities specifically designed to challenge our traditional sources of strength. we over the last two years put 750 billion plus into
3:27 am
military. aren't we trying to stay ahead? >> where we are working very hard at it. when our nation invested in the military, it was kind of like three big pots of money we are trying to balance. i think general dunford's, you know, dealing with that as specht of it that you have your force structure, people, healthcare, salaries. then you have training. you have to keep everyone trained and modernization piece. that's what we are focusing on the modernization piece. brian: you said we also need private sector. they have to help out with innovation. set up better systems to allow our innovators to innovate. that's what we do better than china and russia on their best day. >> exactly. we innovate better than everybody else in the world. just about everybody else copies it and they steal better than anybody else. we have to change our focus of innovation. during the cold war we would innovate to create a differentiation known problem. we would differentiate from russia. now we have to change our innovation to increase the rate of innovation.

we have to nor quickly get new technology to the field more quickly updated. we can't have you heard the term third generational fighter, fourth generational tank it would take a generation to update it we have to be much faster. brian: this thing they have going now. china wants to get their influence. how much does it concern you that italy said we told italy not to get involved and they're getting involved? how much does it concern you that we told poll land not to take this chinese 5 g company -- have to take this company on and they did anyway? >> well, they see a great strength of the u.s. is our access to world markets as well as access to political systems and we have great allies, just recently deployed, i believe, six b-52s to europe as a show of strength. do interoperational exercises while they are being based in europe which means we have political support there getting fuel, things like that. they are trying to mimic
3:29 am
that and get some kind of coalition support there as well. brian: they don't have the moral base we have. they are coming in and trying to bribe people where we have a history with them. i hope our allies are smart about it. we cannot tell them what to do. we hope they make the right decision. >> again, that is what we have going for us. we are a trusted ally and are a tested ally. we have been there during the worst of times for them. i think that has always played to our benefit. brian: is he a retired four star general getting used to the word retired. you have to pick out your clothes now. >> all new stresses, brian. brian: you are home building a house over in new hampshire. grate to see, general, hopefully we do this regularly. i know you are still following general dave perkins. this picture with joe biden with ash carter's wife making the rounds again what really is going on here. this morning she is setting the record straight. president trump threatening to close the border. this week maybe as soon as today over this migrant surge. is that the right move?

3:34 am
left brandon judd along with retired ice director fox news contributor tom homan and former ice agent mark kelly. good morning to all of you. >> good morning. steve: brandon, let's start with you. do you think it's a good idea for the president to close the southern border? no doubt there is a crisis there. should he essentially just say you know what? we are closed for business now? >> it sends the right message it let's mexico know if they do not actually do something, if they don't play their part, then we are going to stunt their economy, basically. look. there is a lot of trade that goes through those ports of entry. if you shut down those ports of entry that's going to hurt mexico's economy. if you punch somebody in the pocketbook, you are going to get a reaction. steve: right, going to be a price because it's going to punch us in the pocketbook. >> it is. we can make that back up. again, you have to do -- these wilthese are extraordinary times and we have to take extraordinary measures. steven miller a great policy advisor for president trump is actually proposing a initiative. i have an op-ed in the "washington times" that explains what this initiative is we can do it
3:35 am
with our current laws. as long as you train the border patrol agents to be a asylum officers to do that credible fear interview. we can get them through the process right now it takes about two to five years to deport somebody. if you train border patrol agents to be asylum officers and interview initially, we can get the deportations done in 10 days, rather than two to five years. steve: that's great. tom, you are a little tougher than brandon is. you say close it now. >> i say, look, that's what makes this president such a great president. is he going to do whatever he can to secure this nation and protect the american people. and he has done it look, he has tried to stop asylum seekers from entering illegally between the ports of entry the ninth circuit shutt that down. do declared an emergency. even some in his own party to do it. now he will close the border down. president reagan did it over the death of one d.e.a. agent which is a tragedy. how many citizens have died at the hands of criminal aliens. 70,000 overdos deaths last year from opioids that come across that border. this president is going to
3:36 am
act. i think he is doing the right thing. as brandon said earlier, yeah, it's going to hurt. these pipes of actions are necessary to secure the border. congress is letting this president down. conditioning has failed the american people for three decades to secure this border. this president made a commitment to the american people. i will do what i can to protect america. he is doing exactly what he elected him to do and doing exactly what a president should do. steve: as a former ice guy you know enemy cases the agent's hands are tied because the laws need to change. it seems like -- the president is probably more likely to get mexico and the triangle countries to do something before he can get his own u.s. congress to agree to change the law. >> that appears to be the case. and you clearly i defer to tom and brandon have a lot more experience on the border. i think it's obvious to anybody that there is a problem here. there is a huge problem. national security problem. and there has to be action taken. and, to me, closing the
3:37 am
border might be drank method, but i think we may be at a point where we need to be drastic. steve: brandon, why is it if we could do what you were talking about earlier in 10 days and deport somebody in 10 days. why aren't we doing it? >> it's a new idea that just came up. we were looking within the laws, again, steven miller was digging deep into the laws. what can we actually do under current authority that isn't going to take congress. let's take congress out of the process. we already have authorities on the book. let's work within those authorities and get what we need to get done. if we actually do it, then we will be able to end catch and release once and for all. that's the magnet that invites people and draws people across the border illegally. if we get rid of that imaginmagnetwe will stop illegal immigration. >> i agree with brandon 100 percent. there is other things we could be doing we are not doing. i said it ice needs to get out there and do nationwide
3:38 am
operation. look for family units. due process at great taxpayer expense and ordered removed. nine out of 10 claiming asylum at the border do not get relief because they have fraudulent claims of asylum. they do not qualify. once a federal judge removes that order. ice needs to order. what's happening in central america, it's a win-win. did you go to the united states, 10% catch and win your case. 0% don't win the case. they are not coming home. it's a win-win. we have to show consequence. the reason i'm so adamant about this i did this three and a half years ago. >> we did an operation. we sent a plain full of family units back home. the crossings went down. we showed there is a consequence. there has to be a consequence. >> i'm sorry, we deport a lot of people in be a stent shah. if they are not there to be removed in the country. disappear into the shadows of society, which is what they do. the moment they get released they take off those bands that they have that is supposed to track them and disappear. they get deported in absent
3:39 am

10,000 illegal crossings stopped in 316-mile section of the long mile border. the major concern now. agents being divert dollars from the border security mission to care for family units and unaccompanied children. most of them coming from the area known as the northern triangle, you see there. el salvador. guatemala, and honduras. the president cutting $500 million of aid to these countries until they do more. is he not bluffing about closing the border.
4:03 am
and the white house is blaming democrats. >> we need border security and we will do the best what we can with what we have. the democrats won't give us additional money and additional people. more importantly, they will not change the law that is acting as this giant magnet for people from south and central america to come into this country. >> but closing the border could have a heavy economic impact. you see there the u.s. chamber of commerce warning impact $1.7 billion of daily cross border trade. the president also, by the way, is blasting mexico for not doing enough. this as mexican officials say they are revamping their humanitarian visa program on a limited basis in southern mexico starting today. it was shut down earlier this year because of overwhelming numbers, guys? brian: griff, thanks. those are startling numbers, too. when you see that mexico is our third leading trading partner in the entire world and we, last year we had $611 billion in trades and goods in just 2018. so it's going to immediately impact both countries, with

yobutthe president is saying i'm not getting cooperation with the democrats. i can't get momentum towards changing immigration policy in this country. i'm going to have to send a message to other countries. ainsley: they need more manpower and that's why they are going to have to possibly take border patrol agents in the port of entries and put it in the dessert areas where there aren't any walls. i was reading article homeland security official said illegal immigration super highway flowing through mexico. a super highway. steve: okay. so what are we going to do you? look at those images right there. and they are heart-breaking to see those. but something has got to give. we had a great panel on about a half an hour ago. and brandon judd, president of national border patrol council had a great idea that apparently originated with steven miller who is one of the president's advisors. and that is when these people are stopped in the united states by border patrol agents, if those border patrol agents were actually trained to be asylum officers, and start the asylum process, that
4:05 am
would speed things up like nobody's business. here is brandon judd. >> we can do it with our current laws. as long as you train the border patrol agents to be asylum officers. right now it takes about two to five years to deport somebody. if you train border patrol agents to be asylum officers and give that credible fear interview initially, we can get the deportations done in 10 days. steve: he said one of the reasons steven miller likes that idea is because you don't have to go to congress and ask them to change the laws. these are things the federal government can do right now. brian: all right. meanwhile, the other major story happening around the country is healthcare. when the president was going to visit the republicans in the senate, he went over to the cameras and said we are going to be the party of healthcare. because this is texas, court case, that is going to look at the constitutionality of obamacare, and he believes that we should stop defending obamacare. it wasn't our program. we don't like it. even though repeal and replace failed, as a government, i don't want to defend it anymore. therefore, the thought was it could fail and if it goes
4:06 am
up to the supreme court, it will be deemed unconstitutional. therefore, we will have nothing. now, a lot of democrats saw this as an opening and say my goodness they are going back to repeal and replace, a disaster for them. and the president says no, i got rick scott who is going to help me out. senator barrasso is going to help me out. come up with own plan. game on. steve: in fact, senator scott friday revealed a transparent drug pricing act which would reduce the cost of prescription drugs. he also announced an amendment that would prevent people with pre-existing conditions from losing their coverage. already you have a u.s. senator who is doing his best to try to get this ball moving. ainsley: a lot of republicans, conservatives and people on obamacare say it's too expensive. and they have lost their doctors, those promises were not met. senator bernie sanders was on one of the sunday shows yesterday. and he was saying -- he has a warning if the administration or if republicans get rid of obamacare. listen to what he says will happen to americans.
4:07 am
>> if trump gets his way, the cost of health insurance for you will be so high that many people literally will not be able to afford it thousands of people will literally die. that's trump's health insurance plan. brian: what bernie sanders wants to do is get rid of obamacare, too. that's not good enough. he wants medicare for all. if you look at the stats, the democratic party is divided. half want medicare for all virtually and just about 30% want obamacare just improve it so the republicans might be wise to let the democrats eat -- beat themselves up and kind of sit back. we know this. everyone agrees kids on the planeplan until 26 very popular. -- how you do it the most interesting part of this. the democrats are flatout divided where to go. ainsley: we have private insurance. bernie sanders if his plan is passed, you will no longer get to do it. the government will take care of your insurance. the problem with that is your daughter is on obamacare and you talked about how expensive it is.
4:08 am
steve: the deduct tillable. ainsley: what's her deticket deductible. steve: between 5 and $8,000 a year. ainsley: she never reaches that she is young. steve: never does. democrats instead of talking about obamacare they are talking about medicare for all. that is very popular. a brand new reuters poll came out and said 70% of americans support that idea. they like that idea. 85% of democrats like it. and 52% of republicans do. however, republicans like florida senator rick scott says that that is not going to be the be all, end all for americans. watch. >> we do know that medicare for all, what senator sanders is all in on is going to ruin our healthcare system. >> let me clarify. >> also ruin private insurance. brian: medicare for all means medicare for none. when your private insurance goes out the window and we will all be victim -- everyone happy with the way the v.a. is working? we will have that for the entire nation. if you like the way britain
4:09 am
waits six months to have a broken arm looked at? congratulations that will be coming our way. republicans would welcome that fight. avik roy was on here earlier. he is one of the deep thinkers when it comes to healthcare. he talks about where we are going to be heading. a lot of things are broken. but what it comes down to at the end of the day is healthcare for newark is too expensive for everybody. that's why so many people are uninsured and some people struggle with their bills. federal government over 70 years that has made it so specific. have you got to tackle hospital monda monopolies which have a big problem driving healthcare costs up. have you got to cover the high cost of prescription drugs which the trump administration is doing a lot to tackle. give people more control over their own healthcare dollars so they're not actually subject to all these regulations that drive up the cost of health insurance. steve: so, ultimately, it becomes what, exactly, is the president's plan? will these republican senators come up with something? brian: no.
4:10 am
steve: remember, it was the democrats who won the house by just simply -- they didn't really have a plan. what they simply said was republicans want to take away your healthcare. and it worked for them. the pres we're going to be the party of healthcare, better be a pretty good plan. brian: mitch mcconnell said when he heard that can't wait to see the president's plan. we are not coming up with it and rick scott and tom barrasso seemed to be somewhat blind sided by it. here is where the president is smart again. he understands the number one issue for the voters for midterms is healthcare and doing nothing is a strike against him. he says go get something done, guys. it's not enough just to stay the status quo. ainsley: let us know what you think hand it over to jillian who has headlines. jillian: we are following a number of breaking news stories. fox news alert. major delays at airports all across the nation right now. several airlines grounding planes for a system-wide outage. just moments ago the faa releasing this list of impacted carriers that

outreach to alyssa milano. and i had some things to say. i think it's pretty outrageous that she focused on the tax incentives than she did on women's rights and abortion. making money of the morality issue. to me it's always going to be about morals over money. ainsley: she talks about the heart beat bill being so evil what's your opinion about that? >> i'm sorry, say that one more time? ainsley: she said that the heart beat bill is so evil. what's your reaction? >> my reaction is that i don't know how you can believe that protecting an innocent life is rooted in evil. you know, she had more to say, like i said, about the money than she did women's reproductive rights. if that's her issue, then why isn't she speaking on that instead? ainsley: unplanned had 50,000 followers on twitter
4:27 am
disappear. a lot of fans, conservative activists were following and then all of a sudden their following disappeared. twitter was saying they weren't suspending these folks on purpose rather it was linked that your twitter account or "unplanned" the movie's account violated twitter's rules. what are your thoughts? >> i think it's outrageous. i have never experienced anything like this in my life. it's incredibly suspicious, given that we were suspended then reinstated, then relost followers. then we have people saying they can't follow. then my own account was unfollowed from the movie. i couldn't even follow my own movie. i don't know of any examples of this happening to more liberal accounts. i don't know if it's ever happened to planned parenthood. it seems to me like they would just verify the page. i don't understand it's not rocket science. ainsley: twitter, we did hear back from twitter we enforce the twitter rules for everybody impartially regardless of background and political affiliation. it might have back fired on
4:28 am
them because now you have more followers than did you in the beginning before they started disappearing. >> yeah. the response from people on twitter has been pretty incredible. as well as the response to the movie in general. the critic's scores are 5050 and the audience score is well above 90%. we got a plus cinema score. people are really, really speaking out for the movie. ainsley: for people who want to see the movie and not familiar with it tell us what it is about. >> planned parenthood is the true story of former abortion and clinic worker abby johnson. she'll worked at planned parenthood for 8 years. was one of the youngest directors in planned parenthood's history. and it was in her eighth year that she assisted on an ultrasound guided abortion and what she witnessed changed her life forever. she saw the humanity of the child in the womb for the first time and shortly after that she left planned parenthood and has become one of the most pro-life advocates of our time. ainsley: it's a tough topic but something we have to talk about.
4:29 am

steve bad news, major flight delays nationwide as the number of airlines i believe right now five have grounded flights for system wide coast-to-coast outage. brian: these are live pictures inside dallas airport where travelers are unsure they will take off. ainsley: live fours. >> we are talking about
4:33 am
thousands of travelers stuck at the airports right now as these major airlines try to get things back online as quickly as possible. so, southwest tweeting moments ago, take a look at this. we have received word that the problem has now been resolved while we always aim for smoother sailing we appreciate you hanging in there with us. here are the major airlines impacted by. this southwest, united, jetblue, alaska, and delta. the faa says the outage impacts every airline using the system called arrow data. this, of course, is just awful news for travelers as several airlines recently scrambled to rebook passengers after the grounding of their boeing 737 max planes that happened about march 14th. that is ongoing as investigators figure out what caused an ethiopian airlines jet to crash also last month killing all 157 people on board.
4:34 am
now we were expecting to get an update on the cause of that ethiopian airlines crash today, actually. but that announcement has since been postponed. so we are going to stay on top of this story and bring you the very latest as we get it. steve: thank you very much for the latest. let's now bring in dan bongino fox news contributor, former new york city cop, a secret service guy. author of spy gate the attempted sabotage of donald trump. mr. barntion, goo bank, good to. good to see you. we are so reliant on software and technical glitches can screw everything up. >> yeah. and as you can see, the impact is pretty dramatic. especially when it's a piece of software apparently as we heard in that last report used so widely by these various companies out there. you know, there was another story i read recently as well. they are having some issues with some older g.p.s.
4:35 am
systems as well that may impact some air travel because some of the g.p.s. was not expected to be around as long as it was. so, it definitely makes most of us think twice sometimes. brian: dan, let's go to another area of your expertise that's what's going on with this whole russia investigation. chuck todd had me scratching my head yesterday when he said lindsey graham should consider recusing himself because it was john mccain that handed the -- that said hey, lindsey, i just got it dossier, what do i do with it? lindsey said give it to the fbi because of that. listen to this line of questioning. >> given the fact that senator graham admitted he was sort of involved in the process or at least knew of the process of how the dossier got to james comey from senator mccain and he read it actually before it got to comey, does he have recuse himself from this investigation on your committee or not? >> [laughter] >> do you think lindsey graham would recuse himself from any investigation?
4:36 am
i can't imagine it. brian: do you believe this? a guy determined to get to the bottom of this and chuck todd is seemingly doing the work for democrats. >> well, chuck todd always does the work of democrats. is he a democrat activist posing as a media operative. you know, what's really puzzling about this entire case is there were so many obvious conflicts of interest. not stretches like this. well, lindsey graham you knew john mccain, you had a cigar with john mccain one time you were buddies. so of course you need to recuse yourself. that's a ridiculous request. when you look at the democrats thought rod rosenstein was their guy. rod rosenstein writes the memo that fires jim comey and signed fourth fisa to spy on the trump team and democrats never ask for a recusal from rod rosenstein. what about adam schiff, brian? he actually met in aspen with the guy, glenn simpson whose company was working for hillary clinton. brian: i know.
4:37 am
>> who produced the debunked information used to spy on trump. but there have been calls for recusal from him. this is just the absolute height of hypocrisy. chuck todd should be embarrassed by that question. that's a joke. ainsley: attorney general said he should release the report by april 15th. the headlines this morning over the weekend unreasonable. they are trying to hide the report. what's your reaction? >> they are not trying to hide the report. you know, i think they want it released before mike flynn's sentencing. i think they have got a lot to hide. here's the real question. you know, i have been working all weekend. that's probably why i look a little tired today. seriously up all night on a show today that's probably going to blow your minds. brian: your podcast? >> oh, yeah. there is something really really suspicious going on, guys. based on evidence, this isn't some nonsense stuff pulled out of the air. the real question now i think the democrats are running from. is what was bob mueller up
4:38 am
to for 675 days? guys, it's becoming increasingly clear that bob mueller knew as early as june of 2017 a month after he was appoint i believe no later than july of 2017 that this collusion thing not only was a hoax, but was a major spying scandal by the obama administration yet continued to investigate. and mike flynn is a big part of this whole thing. steve: and, in fact, the president has made it very clear he wants to go to the very origins of the mueller reported and try to figure out the fisa stuff. so republicans and this could actually be what you are talking about, are trying so hard to get all these documents that launch things released to the public. >> steve, think about, this right? in just common sense terms. if you found out in july of 2017 the entire case, bob mueller that is you are investigating is a complete total hoax based on the dossier not a scintilla or shred of evidence other than the dossier ever been produced that the collusion scandal existed, right? wouldn't you wrap it up and
4:39 am
tell the american people. >> yeah. >> that's not what happened. look what happened in july withouwithin a few days, george papadopoulos' house is raided? you are investigating a hoax. why are you arresting people. that's the question. brian: absolutely. michael flynn never got along with the obama administration. he didn't like the way they are getting intelligence to the president. and he got fired. and he basically. >> the iran deal, brian, that's the kicker. brian: he thought it was terrible. >> he thought it was awful and the obama administration couldn't stand him for it. steve: what a tease for the dan bongino podcast download it today. mr. bongino, thank you very much for joining us live. >> thanks guys. good to talk to you. jillian: we have been following this tragic story for a couple of days. vigil for college student murdered after getting into the wrong car thinking it was her uber. samantha josephson's dad making an emotional plea.

fox news correspondent at large. good morning to you. >> hi, ainsley. >> president tweeted out this. the democrats are allowing a ridiculous asylum system and major loopholes to a maintain of our immigration system. mexico is likewise doing nothing. a very bad combination for our country. homeland security is being so very nice but not for long. what do you think about that, cutting funding for those countries? >> first of all i'm just back from the worst-timed vacation in broadcast history. i wish i was here last week to gloat with you all about the collusion illusion. there is emergency at the border. i think the democrat was adopt that word if the president had not adopted it first. the people under the underpass taken by federal authorities to a more humane holding area. there is no doubt, jeh johnson is right. there is a crisis at the border. the question, what do you do
5:05 am
about it. it is easy to be compassionate and easy to be outraged at these scenes but the question is, what is the solution? the president now has said, he will take the draconian step of closing the border, the entire border, including the ports of entry. that would be enormously disruptive on both sides of the border. businesses will suffer, millions and millions of dollars in lost revenue. i think it will be even more chaos than we have now, in terms of cutting off all aid to affected countries in central america, you know i've said on the program before that i think the key to the border lies in the home countries of these desperate people, desperately poor people. we have to improve conditions in their country so they don't make the dangerous trek and flood over our borders, disrupting everything and upsetting everyone. brian: here in jeh johnson over the weekend saying something a lot of democrats will have a

5:07 am
the mexico they have to stop this trespassing on their own national territory. there needs to be a summit between the president of the united states and president of the republic of mexico and affected central american nations you have cited, guatemala, el salvador, honduras. they have to get them in the same ran, say listen, you have a responsibility to your own citizens. this is not the answer to your problems. you can't send all of your problems to us. mexico must do something to stop this transiting. i understand his frustration. i just urge prudence when it comes to the harshest blows, closing the border will affect so many innocent people, so many legal people i don't think it is worth it. >> i think you're trite. he is talking tough to get them to the table. that would be great. we'll see what happens there. meanwhile, geraldo, on friday, alexandria ocasio-cortez was talking about the threat of climate change and she made a comparison to the worst terror

congresswoman. i'm filled with admiration and respect for her. i love her exuberance. i love her youthful exuberance, that she talks truth to power. i covered 9/11. 9/11 changed all of our lives for the worst. sent me off to war. we lost so many thousands of our gis, so many 10 of hundreds of thousands were affected in negative way. people with diseases from 9/11. you cannot compare an act of nature, however exexuberant your rhetoric to an intesting mass murder of the american people. maybe compare it to pearl harbor, that is what it is like. to put hurricane maria, a fiasco, not so much of the federal aid but of the corrupt, criminally corrupt local utilities that allowed power polls to rot, did not clear the trees. 70% of the power was out before
5:10 am
hurricane maria hit, because of hurricane irma that hit the month before. we love her that she is my homegirl from the bronx. three of my grandchildren live in her district. i cannot say enough how fresh the breeze she has brought but in this case her exuberance has gone a step too far. it is insulting to the victims of this terrible mass murder that happened downtown manhattan and in washington and the field in pennsylvania and for shame. let's control the rhetoric. you have much more effective when your facts match your eloquence. ainsley: geraldo rivera, thanks for joining us. >> okay. thank you. steve: all right. 8:10 in new york city, jillian joins us with another fox news alert. reporter: two marine pilots killed during a helicopter crash during a rue taken training mission in arizona. they were flying a ah-1 viper

ainsley: straight to a fox news alert. president trump threatening to shut the southern border as soon as today. steve: the president just two minutes ago tweeted this, democrats working with republicans in congress can fix the asylum and other loopholes quickly. we have a major national emergency at our southern border. get 'r done now. brian: is the right move we need to get action on the border shutting down the border? here to weigh in, gop senator marsha blackburn. senator, this will hurt people on both sides, president wants to send a message, both sides of the border, americans and mexicans. >> until we close the southern border, a every town is a border town, every state is a border state, drugs, human sex trafficking, gangs, all there on the southern border. so the president is right about this. mexico needs to secure their southern border to end entry into mexico and, then we do need to do some things there, getting, border patrol, what they need to do their job.
5:18 am
steve: sure. the president to his point in the tweet accurately says, look, the problem essentially is the laws. >> that's right. steve: the reason the laws are messed up because of the way people in congress wrote them. if the democrats came together with the republicans, they would give him a win. so that the is last thing they want to do. >> which is so unfortunate because this is a national security emergency. this is a national emergency. brian: who can you team with on the democratic side? who could you walk over to say can you address this like adults? >> brian, i will tell you, every democrat should come forward to work with us, because this is in our interest to secure it, to get, stop the drugs coming into our country, to stop the sex trafficking, to stop these gangs. this is something that needs to be done because they continue to come across the border until we get that barrier, they're going to put their foot on u.s. soil, say asylum. and our border patrol is
5:19 am
overrun. now i met with the u.s. cis director on friday and one of the things that he told me is, how difficult it is, they do not have the resources they need, whether it is the dhs or i.c.e. or u.s. cis, they don't have the resources they need. the border patrol reassigned 750 agents in february, took them away from the border, moved them to dealing with the migrants. so what happens then? all of the cartels, which are big business, they know where the border agents are going. so they go five mails down the border. they're running drugs in. ainsley: frustrating as citizens , to watch what is happening f we go out of the country, we have to come back in, show a passport. these are allowed to walk in. president said we won't pay for these three countries, we vent won't pay anymore because they haven't done anything for us. do you agree we should cut off
5:20 am
funding? >> i agree with that. this is a national emergency, the border needs to be secured. mexico needs to work with us. we neared to hear with gaut maul lakes i hear guatemala wants to work with us, but nicaragua and el salvador give us a stiff arm, is that correct? >> we need have all of them on the table to work with us. this has to stop. i asked how the morale was with our border patrol. it is very low right now. you can imagine going out every day to do your job. you do not have the resources to do your job. you can't get a border, additional agents or technology. it makes it tough. steve: we're hitting critical mass. something has to give. senator, thank you. >> good to be here. steve: 8:20 in new york city. some liberal mayors in new york city want police to stop charging people with petty crimes for jump be turnstiles.

♪ ainsley: get this. there is only one blockbuster video store still standing in the world. it is in bend, oregon. we find kristina partsinevelos from our sister network in fox business. i understand a lot of tourists are globing there. reporter: not right now. because it is very early. we were here yet evening t was packed with people going into the store. this is officially the last one in the world. there was one in perth, australia, they called this store yesterday to wish them luck. now officially the last one. it has been around since 1985. very, very familiar place. they have the popcorn ceilings
5:25 am
in there. new dvds in there as well. everything seems the same. even smells the same. at its boom, blockbuster had 9,000 locations around 12 countries with annual revenue of almost $6 billion. so, you're seeing people come in here, not just tourists but locals alike. listen in. >> we live, like three blocks from here. we come here at least weekly. right now we're going through all the marvel movies for the kids until the next one comes out. we're here at least once a week, totally thrilled to have it. reporter: that is just one example after local. we spoke to a lot of people, including the manager sandy. she told me the reason why the store is still profitable, you have the locals don't necessarily want to just have to continuously browse on netflix. they want to come to this location where you can get brand new releases. she goes every single tuesday to get them at a local store and she gets them shipped here.
5:26 am
then you've got tourism in bend, oregon. it is constantly growing a lot of people travel long distances to travel this location, given the last blockbuster in the world. i admit, i felt nostalgic. i worked at blockbuster for a year. everything, down to the computers is exactly the same. we'll be here all day in bend, oregon. ainsley: we love the story. it takes us all back. we have memories of blockbuster. thank you very much, kristina. head over to brian. brian: 26 minutes after the hour. mayors in liberal cities telling cops to stop busting people for petty crimes like weed possession or turnstile jumping. in new york city, one of the turnstile numbers was a murder. they had been looking for him ever since. are the cities running cities into the ground by not tracking down on crime, or letting go on the little stuff do they focus on big stuff? we have former nypd officer,
5:27 am
darren pour cher. stop the squeegee guys, stop every little crime, you stop the big crimes. where do you stand on this? >> i absolute hi agree with it. i was a cop back in the '90s back in new york city. one of the things rudy giuliani and police commissioner bratton tout was the broken window theory. this was introduced back in 1982py kelly and wilson. was criminology theory that focused on lower level offenses. when you lock people up for lower level offenses they're not as apt to commit larger offenses much we're seeing receding from mayors like bill de blasio and what happened to san francisco. that is horrific. taking quality of life back where it was in the 70s, 80s. we need to move forward. setting a definitely dangerous precedent. brian: you noticed the big difference in the city right now, what we see on daily basis.
5:28 am
in san francisco, they decriminalized shoplifting for under $950. you're willing to take something if under 1000 bucks you will be okay. seattle's mayor asked courts to vacate all misdemeanor marijuana possessions and convictions before the state, before the state passed that law in 2012. so, these little things, they say help them focus on the big things. what about that concept? you take your, your resources, push it towards bigger issues? >> we're setting a bad precedent here in new york. as you look at the recent budget proposed to pass, one of the things they're focusing on is the elimination of bail for low level offenses like such as misdemeanors. this is who are risk. we're setting a bad example for our youth moving forward. one of the things that i always look back at, when we look at the progress of reduction in crime, what we've accomplished here in new york city it really should have set a benchmark.
5:29 am
it did set a benchmark in terms of stats. but unfortunately we're seeing regression for places like seattle. here in los angeles i see the same thing happening here. chicago, the same holding true in chicago and also san francisco. so we need to tout our successes on what, what we've done historically and see, we can see the success as something moving us forward to a better quality of life. unfortunately these liberal mayors are just not getting it, brian. brian: also experienced men and women walk the beat on daily basis. they know it is wrong, forced to look the other way. dr. darrin pour cher. thanks so much. >> thank you, brian. brian: lack of law and order, do you have a problem with that? let us know. breaking right now, thousands of travelers stuck at airports thanks to a major tech glitch. an update next. forget the big mack mcdonald's unveiled the mac pickle, is this good news or bad news for cue --

ainsley: they say now the problem has been resolved but people are still to be delayed for the rest of the day and how long does something like this carry into? will it cause delays tomorrow too? >> typically takes about 24 hours before they get all of the data lined back up. this really is the digital age of flying. so we can expect many times these things can happen. but the great thing about the nation's airlines they usually can turn this around in 24 hours but very inconvenient for flyers. that is really what you're seeing delays taking place in airports. airports operations cannot stand when this happens. this all resides to the bottom line of revenue. steve: costs them money. oliver, thank you for joining us. whenever stuff like this happens we turn to explain what happened. you did just that. ainsley: call the airline. brian: when we need to turn to news we turn to jillian. jillian: i won't make you wait.
