afraid of taking elevators. rob: who are these kids? jillian: we had to cut out some words out of all those stories and now we have all this time. have a good day. rob: bye. steve: this is a fox news alert. the situation at our border now being compared to the worst kind of natural disaster. listen u. >> this is one of, if not the biggest crisis this country has faced in a decade. we're not treating this like a massive cat 5 hurricane disaster. brian: kirstjen nielsen heading to the border today to get a first hand look again. ainsley: griff jenkins is live in mcallen, texas with the latest for us. griff? >> ainsley, brian and steve. i'm back on the border. let me tell you it is just as intense if not more than i have ever seen since i have been coming down here. we just found out today that there have been five criminals arrested in this
rio grande valley, three gang members. two of which the ms-13 identified as. two sex offenders, one for sex acts with a minor. but when a.j. hall and i left the airport within just an hour of leaving the airport driving down to take a look at the border we got into the many arrests that were going on. take a look. >> not an hour since we have been landed we came down to the border to see what's going on. you can see already the military helicopter up there, national guard supporting border patrol has just made this apprehension. we're looking through the slats. this is a temporary wall that stops illegals just about a quarter mile, half a mile to the direction you are looking. this fence stops them from coming into mcallen. this is just indicative of what is showing up. hour after hour day after day. it just keeps coming. and overwhelming you can see the manpower that it takes. obviously the eyes in the sky helping on this
apprehension. guys, behind me is the mcallen point of entry into mexico in the rbg sector. here they average 1,000 plus a day for about the last 10 days or more. two days ago they had 1400. we'll get to last night's numbers here early this morning. but the problem here is what to do with these people. the facilities can only hold about 3300 illegal migrants that have been taken into custody. they have more than 6,000 right now. so if you pull agents off this border in the areas where it's really vulnerable and have them process these family units which are surging and you clear out 1,000, let's say by releasing them into the public, the other 1,000 are coming tonight. speaking of releasing tout public. they're taking it to the catholic charities of rbg. sister has says she has never seen anything like this. listen. >> those numbers have been so different and so high in comparison to any other year before that.
it's unbelievable the number of individual families that have been released in such great numbers. >> and as you mentioned, brian, secretary nielsen now coming down just west of us to el paso. there they are seeing a surge of 1700 percent in family unit apprehensions. i have been in contact early this morning with some of the agents out on the line. they say they have been very busy tonight. guys? steve: griff. i have a question for you. during your live shot. i saw a number of truck goes through there. you know, the president has threatened mexico that unless they stop people he is going to shut down the border. now apparently they are talking about a plan b where they would shut downtown border to everything except commercial trucks. how many people would that impact there in mcallen, texas? >> well, it would be tremendous, steve. because trucking is a major issue. here we had a trucker come down here about an hour ago and ask us, because we are a news crew, whether or not
trucks were still allowed to come through. they heard the rumor the one in laredo west of success not open to trucks. the trucking industry is tremendous here in texas. it is to the tune of $187 billion of goods moved by trucks here in this area and the local papers are talking a lot about that because they are concerned rightfully so that the president will be forced to close the border if mexico doesn't do more to stop the surge that we're seeing down here right now. brian: griff, we know there was like 70,000 plus last month in february a&e apprehended. we know it's going to be over 100,000 in march apprehended. does that include people that we miss? is there a calculus on average how many we don't get? >> we have no idea but you talk to the bp officers here. they say there has got to be even more than ever because of the processing. remember, brian and ainsley
and steve, what people have to realize is that a decade ago when we had these similar numbers, they were mostly from mexico and they were sent back the same day because you just send them back right across this border. now they are from central america. they are women, children, family units. they have to be put somewhere. they have to be dealt with so the only way to do that is to pull officers off the border security mission and put them into processing and so everyone that this arrest tonight. the day shift today, they will have to deal with processing those people. steve: sure. >> and not sitting on that b the long answer is we really have no idea how many are coming across that aren't being caught. we know there are a lot. sister says by the way in the last couple weeks she has gotten 10,000 or more released to her little tiny catholic charities here and that's just one snapshot of what's happening on this 2,000-mile long border. ainsley: thank you, griff, for your report. the president said it would have a negative impact if he had to shut down the border. we were hearing stories about all the avocados our
country depends on that comes from mexico. it would have a negative impact out o. but our security is more important. congress can fix this in 45 minutes. get rid much chain migration, catch and release and i have lottery and. so judges. brian: right now majority in the house and majority in the senate draw up exactly what you want. democrats are beginning to realize this is not a man made crisis. this is not trump responsible nor problem the wall is spravment start debating it and put people on the record on whether they see it's a problem. there are some democrats like beto o'rourke who say things that just make no sense like illegal immigrants make us stronger? steve: nancy pelosi wants to put everybody on the record because apparently she had a meeting last night in the speaker's chambers where they are considering putting up for a vet every member of the house a resolution that would condemn the president's call to shut the border. of course, it would be symbolic. they are essentially daring the republicans to oppose
the president's signature issue. it would reaffirm trump's immigration policies are not in the economic interest of the united states. that's what they are trying to say. so they are trying to say okay, you republicans and you democrats. let's vote. who is for shutting the border? every democrat is going to vote no. how many republicans though? they are trying to put republicans on the official record to figure out whether or not they do. ainsley: they are condemning the president for doing this he is not the first president to do this. if you look back in 1963 lyndon b. johnson did that after jfk. richard nixon about it in 1969 operation intercept. ronald reagan did it in 1958 with camarena. george bush did it in 2001 after 9/11. >> brian: $1.000000000 of services flow back and forth daily. a long shutdown between the two countries could lead to a recession in new mexico and the u.s.
do it on a smaller basis. you mentioned freight and walking lanes. the other thing what the president is saying is i will do whatever it takes to secure the country even if it hurts us economically because my first job is security. that's called leadership. and if republicans don't go with it i get that too. the president has a different responsibility. steve: he has a big stick. he is negotiating with mexico. unless, unless do you something about the problem at our southern border, i'm going to do it. meanwhile julian castro who is running for president, what he would like to see is he would like the federal government to remove section 1325 which makes illegal entry into the united states a federal misdemeanor and has ever since 1929 u it in other words, he wants to decriminalize breaking the law and breaking into the country. >> i'm not buying into the b.s. that basically says that little children and mothers who are desperate and fleeing desperate
circumstances are a national security threat to our nation. i said we should decriminalize people who are coming here, crossing the border. steve: he says that the law has been weaponized simply to target immigrants and, of course, he is running for president and would like to decriminalize those crossings. ainsley: his blog post is immigrants seeking refuge in our country aren't a threat to national security. migration shouldn't be a criminal justice issue. brian: my question to you is what's more important social programs for americans, public schools for americans or illegals who come here and need english as a second language. need to be given public school. need to be given tutoring help, social programs to prop them up. i'm sure they are fine people. just ask themselves what is more important should be a priority the american people and children in overcrowded classrooms already. they have written checks in texas for $2.4 billion of texas taxpayer dollars to help out the border in three years. 800 million to schools.
and they are overburdened because of the illegal immigrants who should be allowed to come into our country. ainsley: lindsey gram says i have talked to these guys on the border. they said they need more marijuana power and they are for a border wall. it's easy for us to sit here in new york far away from the border. we have gone down there. the president is going down there for his sixth time this week. talking to the agents to find out what they need to make sure they are safe. steve: they have done the surge. they have already removed 535 blue uniform cpb officers to help with the asylum claims. >> if you want to find out what's really happening, talk to someone who is actually living through this and has gone through. this a former gang member and he was on with laura ingraham last night had some pretty powerful things to say. listen to this. >> it's a real, actual problem that we're having. and it can't be overlooked like 100 percent with the president and the choices that he is making. to secure that border if need to lock it down. you see that people, you
know with good hearts want to come in here and pursue a dream. in these caravans, i can tell from you being in meetings in the past, when i was active in the gang leadership, that there was plans. there was an agenda. and in these caravans, you are going to see a lot of ms-13, a lot of 18 street. you are going to see a lot of gangs. they are going to try to get in here. that's the bottom line. brian: not just out border cities, ainsley. they dump these illegals in areas and president obama did it with those unaccompanied minors in working class areas without telling mayors or governors. next thing you know you are sitting there and your kids come home and from school and there is 10 extra kids in the school and they don't speak english. that's what happens. they fan out across the country. steve: all of those things that we are talking about this morning require them to change the law and to the earlier point, will congress do something? before an election year, don't hold your breath. all right. ainsley: let's hand it over
to jillian who has headlines for us. hi, jillian. jillian: that's right. good morning to you and good morning to you at home as well. a fox news alert. thailand flying the doomed ethiopian airplane followed protocol moments before the crash. the pilots turned off the flight control system that was automatically pushing the plane towards the ground before it crashed killing 157 people. it was the second deadly incident involving 737 max jets. they are now grounded in several countries around the world. history made in chicago overnight. the city electing first black female and openly gay mayor political newcomer and former prosecutor lori lightfoot ran a campaign on shutting down government corruption. >> out there tonight a lot of little girls and boys are watching. they are watching us. they are seeing a city reborn. a city where it doesn't matter what color you are, where it doesn't matter who

expensive than obamacare. and much more usable. brian: so, what will it look like when it's released in 2020? our next guest knows. we are going inside that plan to make america's healthcare better ♪ ♪ sometimes, the pressures of today's world can make it tough to take care of yourself. but nature's bounty has innovative ways to help you maintain balance and help keep you active and well-rested. because hey, tomorrow's coming up fast. nature's bounty. because you're better off healthy.

government has a one size fits all program. steve: um-huh. >> we want states like texas to be able to do what texas thinks is right and do what new york thinks new york thinks is right. we want those states to compete on a level playing field. we think when you do that texas cost also probably go down because there are conservatives there that know how to do competition. new york might have a different story. this is the environment we want. steve: i get the benefit for what you are talking about. the democrats are, many of them running on medicare for all. >> yeah. steve: which sounds great because if you don't have it, it's for everybody. really, it's single payer. but people don't understand that they hear medicare for all and i kind of like that. it seems easier than your plan. >> right. but then you tell them the second thing which is that when you do medicare for all, taxes are going to go up on american families. and. steve: not talking about that. >> right. so no one is going to say that right? no one is going to say that medicare polls well. if you do medicare for all everyone is going to pay a significantly higher tax
burden. not only are you doing that families are going to have less choices. you only get one choice, right? and that's issue u. steve: plus, there are a lot of variables, you don't know whether or not doctors and nurses will say i will work for 40% less which i would have to under medicare. >> that's the problem. we think that actually the democrats are making a pretty fro profound mistake here by making medicare for all their centerpiece. what you are seeing in the democratic party and see in the primary the candidates in the primaries are going to trip over themselves to go as far as left as they possibly can on the primary. that's the dynamic that's going to be at play. for us it's really important that we are talking about this issue in terms of what we care about. our mistake as republicans, was that we didn't take about this a lot in 2016, which is why we failed in 2017. there was no mandate on that issue in terms of what to do going forward. the president is leading us into a mandate here. steve: let's see what happens. tim chapman from heritage action. thank you very much. >> thanks for having me.

out of jail. she tweeted in part, quote: solitary confinement is torture. chealings is being tortured for whistle blowing. she should be released. the former army intelligence analyst is behind bars after refusing grand jury testimony. ainsley? ainsley: okay. thank you, jillian. his progressive agenda includes amnesty for illegals and the green new deal. but despite limited experience, the media is singing praises for this democratic hopeful. his name is pete buttigieg. >> he is disarmingly charming. he has got this like, you know, almost like an innocence about him but at the same time, he is an intellectual. >> everyone that interacts with him is just blown away by him. >> he is on fire. >> there is no dirt on this guy. like nothing. usually candidates have some skeletons somewhere. even his skeletons are singing his praises. ainsley: but will all the hype translate to actual votes? here to debate this is capri cafaro and former national
justice director for the 2016 bernie sanders campaign tezlyn if a garr row. ladies, thank you for being with us. >> good morning. >> good morning. ainsley: is he the future of the party? capri, let's start with you. >> i think he is part of that story for the future of the democratic party. i was one that was a mayor pete fan all the way back in 2016 when he ran for chairman of the democratic national committee because i do think that he has a knack of being able to focus on the kitchen table issues while balancing that with a message of embracing, you know, diversity and inclusiveness. i also think that, you know, as someone who is outside the beltway who is an outsider. who is also a veteran. who is a problem solver, you know, as someone who serves at the local level, and, of course, is a fellow midwesterner i think he brings really unique things to the table. i appreciate is he a road scholar as well. and the fact that he raised $7 million is basically an unknown shows that he is someone that is making a mark whether he actually gets the nomination or not.
i think that he is certainly registering in the national landscape for the democratic party. ainsley: tezlyn, what do you think? is he just popular for the moment? is it move over, beto, he is here to stay? >> well, i don't know. obviously in 2016 i supported senator bernie sanders so, you know, people doubted him in the beginning and he obviously, you know, took over. but i also am a americaner i grew up in oklahoma city. i'm a veteran myself. that doesn't mean that automatically, you know, that his issues resonate with me. i do agree that he bricks some diversity to the table. but he's not the only one that's going to bring diversity to the table. there will be over 20-plus candidates. i think democrats will make a fatal state if they make him the chosen one whether that's him or beto or anyone else. >> i tend to agree with that and thanks to the folks on the bernie camp because of the unity commission, you know, in eliminating things like super delegates, it's anybody's game in 2020.
>> absolutely. ainsley: we have a little ways to go. we will continue to follow that joe biden, we are wondering if he is going to get in especially after all these allegations. two more women have come forward of unwanted touching. lucy flores is one of those. i understand, tezlyn, you know her. tell us about her. >> absolutely. this is the first time i have said this on national tv. i think it's very important. you know, vice president joe biden you should know that lucy flores is a fraud. i myself worked at her at our revolution when she was on the board and i have an eoc claim naming her filed against our revolution naming lucy flores as someone who was racist, who also implemented retaliation. she told me that if i didn't do what she told me to do that i would suffer the consequences. so i think it's really important that joe biden knows that, you know, i don't question what happened between her and him that day. i wasn't there. but i was there when i worked with lucy flores and had an opportunity to see her in action. and i'm the only one, this is very important, the only one that has legal
documentation on her retaliation. she has a long list, a long history of her picking the perfect timing quote, unquote on speaking on these issues. the difference between lucy and i is you, i spoke up immediately and took legal action and she waited for five years. i'm happy to have that conversation in long form. this is the first time i have said it over the last year. i have been very quiet about it now that she has been compelled to speak up, i too am compelled to speak up to say lucy flores is a fraud. ainsley: wow, something we haven't heard before. capri, what about the other women. >> what i have seen is nothing that rises to the level of disqualification as speaker pelosi said and just hearing what my colleague just said about, you know, flores, i'm really incredibly taken aback by this. i think that democrats need to not sabotage themselves. we need to come together regardless of hot nominee is and we certainly shouldn't be disqualifying folks before they get into the race just because we want to eliminate them. and frankly, you know,
republicans are very afraid of joe biden as well. we need to let the system play out. certainly if there are more, you know, salacious allegations. joe biden like anyone else needs to be held to account. right now we shouldn't be undermining, you know, someone who could beat president trump just because there is a select few, you know, maybe on the progressive side that don't want to see him win. ainsley: it's a different time now compared to 2016. so much has happened. we will continue to follow that and see if it becomes an issue for him, tezlyn, capri, thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: it's been nearly 50 years since we landed on the moon. new book looks at how jfk puts his legacy on the line to make that happen. the author joins us next. ♪ fly me to the moon ♪ let me play among the stars ♪ let me see --

american moon shot. john f. kennedy and great space race and he joins us now. doug, i did not know. i thought kennedy said to himself. what's the hot issue. i thought i would do the space thing. he is almost linked from his early day from buck rogers to the moon in 1960's. >> that's right. he was born in 117 in brook line, massachusetts and aviation was the big deal. he was a child that benefited from the wright brothers of 1903 or charles lindbergh in 1927. mainly during world war ii his brother was a naval aviator. he died trying to take out rocket facilities in germany. v 1, 2, 3, parts and facilities. kennedy gets very committed to beating the soviet union after beating world war ii. sputnik is the key moment the soviets put up first satellite and john f. kennedy builds his political career on saying we have a space gap with russia and we are losing the missile race with russia. brian: and the fact is it is a fact. he criticized eisenhower because eisenhower did not want any part of any space
race and here's this young 40-something senator who says we got to get this going. we have got to get going quick or we are doomed. >> you know, ike created nasa in 1958. irch hour wanted to do an incremental approach to space exploration. jack kennedy's favorite word was leapfrog. let's do something big. let's go really 235r. that leapfrog was going to the moon. when kennedy was giving these speeches about why we choose to go to the moon the technology wasn't there to land neil armstrong. kennedy was basically saying invent it. and the reason was because in world war ii fdr built the grand colley dam and. eisenhower created the interstate highway systems, saints lawrence seaway. kennedy was saying what's the big thing, my new frontier agenda should be and he decided that man space and going to the moon by the end of the decade was the ticket. brian: satellite technology, too. satellites and serious radio. everything like that. he was doing that so what he did is goddard started it
and then we get some german scientists and when the german -- when the nazi germany fell, we grabbed a lot of thieves guys. and soviets grabbed a lot of these guys and it was off to the races. how did we get ahead after sputnik? >> we grabbed warner von brawn with operation paper clip. he was hitler's genius rocket tier. von brawn had created the v 2 missiles. starting to reign on london. lucky the war ended because they were getting perfected. we brought most these nazi rocket tiers to forklifts el paso. by 1950 huntsville, alabama, they started building and perfecting rockets. the moon rocket, the saturn five was built by warner von brawn the great engineering outs of huntsville, alabama. brian: amazing, what did it mean for us. they knew marketing back then. they were selling us in magazines and getting us excited and 4% of our g.d.p. was going to nasa. >> you know, brian, that's the key point. nasa was a very effective
advertising agency. you never see a government agency promote itself the way nasa did. james webb from north carolina got into the oil business in oklahoma, webb runs nasa. it's unbelievable how he can get the astronauts in life magazine or on national geographic spread. cbs news with walter chron cite was regularly covering these launches. when jack kennedy recognized once may 5th, 1961 when alan shepard goes into space. tv rating bonanza. then grist ham goes up. tv ratings. scott carpenter. the whole country kind of got space crazed and they said we can make the moon. it became bipartisan. there were times funding almost dried up, but it never did. alas, this summer, on july 20th, will be the 50th anniversary we landed on the moon. brian: so important to see how we got there the momentum behind it and how we won.
kennedy wasn't able to see it lbj picked it up and nixon finished it off. american moan shot is out. congratulations, another masterpiece. >> thank you, brian, i appreciate it. brian: best of luck. jillian, would you tell me what else is happening in the news because i was talking. jillian: because you asked so nicely, brian, of course i will. let's talk about this story sad one we have been following. funeral services held today for the south carolina college student stabbed to death after getting into a car she thought was her uber. samantha josephson's dad speaking out at vigil in their hometown. >> he was a monster, right? what he did was i don't want anybody else to go through it as a parent. nothing that you would ever want to do. you don't want to go through. this. jillian: a bill has been introduced in south carolina that would require ride share drivers to have an

university here at new york state demanding the school remove a thomas jefferson statue on their campus claiming the founding father institutionalized racism. our next guest is a student at the school who launched a counter petition to response. he said the statue should stay. joining us now hofstra university student and campus reform.org correspondent newly meanted. jonah caldwell. >> good to be with you. steve: i remember there were protest as year ago and the school decided he is going to stay. >> exactly. last march, around this exact same time a big issue about this. and we made the counter petition. i made the counter protest and we had meetings with the administrators and after three months of debate they decided that the statue was going to stay up. now all of a sudden it seems to be an issue again. but, i believe this issue has already been solved seeing as how they already decided they wanted to keep it up. steve: right, you say it's better to keep him up because you say it's better to acknowledge that what happened in history then to pretend that it never did.
>> right. so i'm a history major. so i love history and i study it very closely. thomas jefferson was a great man. he wrote the declaration of independence. he instilled many of the ideas of freedom and equality we use in our society today. we also have to acknowledge that we had the past history of slavery we look back and say it was horrible today but at the time it was normal. steve: you say acknowledge that. put that out there. >> right. acknowledge that part of studying history is looking at the whole picture. not just part of this. if you remove the statue, you remove the conversation about it you remove the history about it. the only way that we could move forward from the past is talking about history and acknowledging things happened while also looking at the greater picture and seeing all the good that he did. steve: okay. so don't pretend it never happened. just tell the whole story. >> right. steve: okay. hofstra university did put out a statement they say after conversations a year ago that the variety of stakeholders about the jefferson statue on campus, hofstra university's president announced in may 2018 that the statue will remain where it is. that's exactly what you
wanted, isn't it. >> right, exactly. i think it's a great place for people to see it and think about thomas jefferson and freedoms he instilled for our society and to have that conversation started right there. steve: all right. richard caldwell, thank you for joining us live. >> thank you. appreciate it. steve: meanwhile, 11 minutes before the top of the hour. 2 million people saw him get married on television. jeremy and audrey loloff are sharing their secrets to dating and love. they are going to join us. ♪ with your arms around me ♪ i only wish that you could see ♪ ♪ to inspire confidence through style. ♪ i'm working to make connections of a different kind. ♪ i'm working for beauty that begins with nature. ♪ to treat every car like i treat mine. ♪ at adp we're designing a better way to work, so you can achieve what you're working for.

little people big world. sharing sharing sharing details of story new book a love letter life. here with more on their book jeremy and audrey. >> good morning, thanks for having us. steve: what is a love letter life, jeremy. >> a love letter life we like to compare it to, you know, we think everyone's love story should be intentional, should take time. love stories in nature, relationships in nature aren't very convenient. there is no back space key there is accepting and moving forward. and quite honest resemblance of a love letter. we say love letter life is a pursuit of that journey that intention. steve: a better story? >> a better story, exactly. ainsley: audrey, you have all been married almost five years. 18 month old little girl at home. seen your life highlighted on the show little people big world. we're happy that you wrote this book. for people out there who are struggling what's your advice? how do you get through it. >> the main thing i think, we want to inspire people to
pursue creatively, date intentionally and love faithfully which is the sub250eu8g9s of the book. we share a lot of stories in this book things we struggled with. our story with all the imperfections and flaws. and we like to tell people, like, you know, we are on the journey we are young obviously still in the early phases and we are learning. but we feel like there just wasn't a lot out there for people like there wasn't a lot out there by people like us that are kind of in it with them for our generation. steve: let's talk about some of the things from the book. for instance, not an island. what does that mean? >> yeah, not an island. so we believe in integrating instead of isolating. like people our age nowadays specifically social media they get into these relationships and next thing you know it's like they are on this island. having people, friends and family speaking into your relationship is a massive sign of health and growth and mentorship and there is just so much there. >> we allow that in our marriage today but also in our dating relationship, friends and family to either raise green flags or red flags for our relationship. >> people say no such thing
as shortcuts in life i disagree there are. it's told to you by people who have seen and done that. steve: i have heard raising red flags. never heard of a green flag. how many times did you get a green flag. >> all around. that was one of the things that encouraged us in our dating relationship. >> strangers would pay for our meals and affirm us, hey, like thank you for what you are doing? what are we doing? steve: was that because you were on tv. >> maybe: didn't lead on to it. ainsley: the show was great and saw you get married. we hadn't heard your story. great to read the book and learn that sharing and not being on an island and integrating part of your family. when you try to live this life by yourself and just the two of you and isolating your family it's not going to be successful. >> definitely, yeah. one thing we try to get across in the book or i guess the inspiration as well for the book is everything in life successful seems to have a mission statement, goals, and, you know, a team
effort. and so like why don't our marriages? everything successful has an agenda, a strategy, a system in which it works or call it a board of directors if you will, not an island, it's like why aren't we doing that with our marriages? marriages can be so powerful and so awesome for not just, you know, the two people in it but also society by and large and it's like why aren't we being intentional? >> the world and evil will try to break up family. so i think it's wonderful that you are writing a book of how we can make our lives and our families and our relationships better. >> that's the plan. ainsley: god bless you. steve: the book is out now. it's called a love letter life. jeremy and audrey roloff. steve: good luck. >> thank you. ainsley: okay. still ahead, newt gingrich, mollie hemingway and sean spicer are all here live. ♪ ♪ cal: we saved our money and now, we get to spend it - our way.

♪ brian: all right, here we go. straight to a fox news alert. the situation at our border now being compared to the worst kind of natural disaster. >> this is one of, if not the biggest crisis this country has faced in a decade we're now treating this like a massive cat five hurricane disaster. ainsley: no breaks for border agents. fox news cameras were right there and they were busting illegals crossing into the united states. steve: griff jenkins saw it all. he joins us live from mccallen, texas. you have been talking to us all morning. griff: an agent stopped by here a few minutes and said busy overnight. several large groupings of note. one woman that told the agents she was 8 and a half months pregnant had some pain, maybe it was contractions. an agent then had to drive her to a hospital, an american hospital near here,
maybe we will find out more about what happened there. one thing it's been a very busy night and a busy week. 1,000-plus apprehensions a day for several days. you've had here in this area some arrests as well. three gang members, two of which are ms-13 members. two arrested for sex -- with sex offenders histories. that's just a four day stand. unbelievable these numbers overwhelming the system here. they can only hold about 3300 of the illegal crossers and they have got more than 6,000 right now. they have to release them into the public and mostly they are releasing them to the catholic charities of the rio grande day valley to sister norma pentell who has never seen like this. and they are being exploited by the cartels. listen. >> i'm certain that traffickers. exploiting the families guiding them to make money from them. i'm sure that is happening.
griff: meanwhile folks here are nervous on the texas side of this border. mcallen's port of entry behind me because of the fact that mexico is texas' biggest trading partner to the tune of $187 billion of goods a year. president trump saying he is still willing to put security over trade, if it comes to it. but he says if mexico gets their act together, perhaps he won't have to. here is what the president said yesterday. >> i'm ready to goes close it if i have to close it. mexico, as you know, has been starting to apprehend a lot of people at their southern border. >> now, when you talk about the, quote, crisis, you have the humanitarian crisis because some family units are coming, women and children whereas secretary nielsen will visit today in el paso, they are seeing a near 1700 percent increase in family unit apprehensions from this time last year.
guys? steve: all right, griff. griff, that's one of the reasons why we heard that they were going to do this. they were going to surge some people who work for the border patrol from different ports to go and help with the asylum claims. i read in the "the washington post" this morning that 545 blue union formed cbp officers are now helping border patrol agents process the central american and mexican claims, right? >> exactly, steve. so, if you have got 1,000 a day. we don't have last night's numbers. but the day before was 1400, the night shift takes in 1400. they have got to be processed in an overwhelmed system. that means the daytime guys can't be out on this border and we just told you there have been five criminals arrested in the last four days. and who knows how many narcotics and other contraband could be coming through. you have a real problem whether you have to take an agent off the line and take a pregnant woman to a hospital. or to attend to these family units being dropped off to the catholic charities. someone has to do it.
and that is the real crux of what is overwhelming the system. brian: also, griff, what i think is astounding, there is over 1,000 positions on border patrol still open right now. that they have not been able to fill. >> well, i will tell you, they need to fill it because the guy that stopped by and told us said how are you doing? he said to me, quote: we're really stretched thin. ainsley: wow u it's amazing griff, because the democrats you hear, they are not supporting the wall, they are not supporting putting more people down there on the border. and every time you talk to someone who works on the border or someone that is in charge down there. they all say the same thing that they need more manpower. griff: you know, that's right, ainsley. whether you see this through a political lens or not, data doesn't lie. it's simply a shear issue of numbers. and these numbers, which are going to top, we think, 100,000 for the month of march, that's why you saw
the bipartisan of jeh johnson, president obama's dhs secretary saying 100,000 is undenialably a crisis. brian: griff, thanks so much. we will check in with you again. what i find really astounding and a credit to the president. the president is all about the economy. is he always talking about trade. he says, listen, i will blow up the whole trade deal we have. i will hurt our economy in the short-term because i was hired first and foremost for security. he is concerned about security at the border first. and even though republicans have every right too say oh my goodness what's it going to do so to it auto industry. how is it going to hurt the will. first and foremost safety matters which went into why george w. bush closed down the border after 9/11. ainsley: the president said it's going to have a negative impact if i shut down the border. but, security comes first. you have some of these candidates. howard schultz on the couch yesterday. he is saying he doesn't want to cut off funding to these countries, the central american countries. the president said yesterday honduras, guatemala and el salvador we pay you hundreds of millions of dollars and that money is not going where it's supposed to and you are taking advantage of
the united states. steve: the president is making a threat to new mexico do something about all these people streaming into our country. that's why he suggested he will close the border. however few because there would be such a dire economic impact on the united states. they said it could halt all car manufacturing in a week. it could impact 1 million jobs because all -- a lot of the parts for every american automaker come from mexico and central america. a lot of them come there. so now what they are doing is talking about a plan b. where they would stop everything on our southern border except commercial traffic. trucks and trains would continue to bring food into the country. brownsville alone 700 truck as day. and, do you know what in the president has god be advice from people like mitch mcconnell. he said it would be potentially catastrophic. he said i hope the president wouldn't be doing that john kennedy the senator from the great state of louisiana said it would cost the president ounited states 1 to $2 billion every day if he
shut the border. brian: you think is a catastrophe. the data doesn't lie. not to them. some democrats, at least the ones you are about to see think the president is making it up. >> president trump must stop holding american people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis. >> this president just used the back drop of the oval office to manufacture a crisis. >> big scam of the whole address is that there is a crisis. there is not a crisis. >> notion that we have a crisis there, security crisis is salute nonsense. >> some question if there is a crisis at all as the president has claimed. >> there is not a crisis at the border. it's a manufactured crisis for the president to get a political win. >> this artificial crisis of the president isn't going to justify his appropriating money for a wall that congress is unwilling to give. steve: um-huh. they don't want to give him a win, so they say it is a manufactured crisis. brian: so dated maybe they have changed their minds now. steve: good one. ainsley: here is dan patrick, he is the texas
lieutenant governor. he says there is a meltdown at the border. >> the meltdown is happening on the border. it has never been this bad. even jeh johnson, the former dhs secretary under obama said at the highest level they had 60,000 people apprehended in one month. we'll break 100,000 or be near 100,000 this month. that's the projection. right now, with secretary nielsen having to push so many border patrol agents to these hot spots, it's leaving us a little thin in other areas. that means people could easily be pouring over in no man's land as i would call it between these checkpoints. ainsley: the president said when he is talking to some these democrats, when they are behind closed doors that they agree with that, that they agree that there is a crisis. steve: sure. ainsley: when it comes to voting they don't want to go on the record. brian: push something out specific today. put it out four or five things you could change about our asylum rules. forget the wall.
the wall is a separate issue that would change things at the border and send a different message to those central american countries. steve: the house democrats want to do a resolution. it could be very shortly where they would make every member of congress on the -- in the house of representatives go on the record whether or not they support the president closing the border. clearly, immigration is going to be something that the president is going to be running on in 2020. something else he would love to run on is the green new deal by aoc. the president last night was at the national republic can congressional committee dinner, and had this to say about freshman congresswoman and her idea from new york. >> the green new deal done by a young bartender, 29 years old. [laughter] a young bartender, wonderful young woman the green new deal. the first time i heard it i said that's the craziest thing. you have senators that are professionals that you guys know that have been there for a long time, white hair,
everything perfect, and they are standing behind her and they are shaking, they are petrified of her. they really believe this stuff. we have to do something. don't do it too early, please. don't kill it because we want to be able to run against it. if they beat me with the green new deal, i deserve to lose. [laughter] true. brian: talking about senator markey who co-sponsored a deal i don't know if he read but nancy pelosi hasn't gotten behind. on behalf of long line of bartenders, i'm pro-bar tenders being smart though. i will say this. bartender aside, the president is having some fun with that because democrats won't run from that. ainsley: is he basically saying she doesn't have as much experience as the people who have been in office for a long time. steve: i would look for the president to be talking about that right through election day 2020. it's 7:10 now in new york city. jillian joins us with a fox news alert. >> that's right. good morning. let's start with this news that we are following. in thailand, flying the doomed ethiopian airlines plane following boeing's emergency protocol moments

but, obviously, at the end of the day, this is about the american people seeing the full report and making sure that we understanding fully what happened as russia interfered with our elections. brian: senator ernst, you agree waiting a week is okay? does the subpoena baffle you, too. >> well, i'm not sure about the subpoena, brian. but i do think that the american people have the right to understand what is in this report and i do think it needs to be released as well. brian: all right. you have some exciting news. working together is exciting for most americans. you are doing this for the green alert. we know about the silver alert and amber alert. what about the green alert, senator hasan? >> well, we know that so many of our veterans who sacrifice so much for our country come back having suffered emotional or mental trauma. as a result, we are losing some of our veterans to suicide, about 20 a day which is far too many. so, what this bill would do would be establish a commission at the federal level to help states develop
best practices to develop their own green alert system. so when an at risk veteran goes missing, we have a system that we could deploy to find them in those critical first few hours. brian: i understand commission together for health and human services transportation and veterans affairs to really attack this. so, you have commanded people in the field who have come back safe and then committed suicide. how will this address that. >> well, this does address it because we see that veterans sometimes are active on social media and then they just all of a sudden will drop off. and it causes concern amongst their buddies and having experienced that, you know, we know we need to reach out, we need to find a way. if green alert helps us connect with those veterans, find them when they are in a time of crisis, i think it's really, really important. and as you said as a combat veteran, i have seen this many times over. the iowa state senate just passed a green alert bill unanimously in my home state. so, i hope that we can lead the way and set the example.
brian: senator hasan, will i see this on the street signs and highway like i see amber alerts? >> well, what we are going to see is states sharing their best practices. wisconsin has a system already. we know that iowa as senator ernst has just said has their system in place. we just want to make sure that whatever makes sense in the state that is deploying the system we can find at risk veterans quickly and get them to the assistance they need. i'm incredibly grateful to veterans like senator ernst for their service, for their sacrifice and, you know, our job as civilians is to build a country ever worthy of that sacrifice and this is one step toward that. >> absolutely. brian: any time democrats and republicans are the working together worthy of our time and especially working for our veterans. senators, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thanks, brian. brian: 10 minutes before the bottom of the hour. we showed you this crazy video. illegal immigrants jumping over a fence and running through the backyard. the homeowner says it's not the first time it's happened. she joins us next.

backyard. and they were in my backyard for 20 minutes. steve: oh my goodness. could you tell what they were doing there? >> no. i didn't have cameras where they were. but they were on the side of our house. steve: right. >> they were waiting for border patrol to clear away so they could continue on their journey. steve: you don't know if those are people in the country illegally though, do you? >> well, because they were running, i would assume that they had crossed the border like everyone else does and are just heading north. steve: um-huh. because you are so close to the border in your neck of the woods local authorities say if you see something, say something, call us. you either called the local police or you call border patrol. when you did, what did they say? >> you go straight to dispatch. they ask what your calling about, where you're located. and they usually send border patrol agents out to check out what's going on.
steve: right. >> on a good day. steve: and i understand the border patrol agent you spoke to said after he looked at the video said i think they are runners. what are runners? >> well, the manner of the illegals coming across the border has changed a little bit. on years past they were on their way trying to get north and infiltrate into the community. now they don't have to do it. they simply have to wait at a roadside and get picked up and then they are processed. the fact that this was a large group and they were running was a little bit out of our norm. like last night we had a group that was pixd up and it was 10. so this was nearly double the size of what would normally be coming through our community. steve: okay. so i think the authorities refer to them as border evaders. so 16 in your yard and 10 in the neighborhood. your gated community last night? >> yes. steve: unbelievable. and one of the reasons, bonnie, you find this
troubling is because you spend a lot of time in the neighborhood alone, right? >> yes. yes. i mean, we have a great neighborhood, and i don't feel threatened in any way. but when they come into your backyard and they're by your bedroom window for 20 minutes that's disconcerning for me. steve: absolutely. bonnie, there is a national debate going on right now. the president says it is a crisis at our southern border. a humanitarian crisis. some democrats. >> it is. steve: some democrats say it is not. what do you think about the idea of a wall? if there was a wall between you and mexico, what do you think about that? >> well, it is -- i believe that will slow down the traffic. it will be more controllable. i think we need it. and it's just a matter of getting it through.

become keg. steve: a kag party. ainsley: maybe win over millennials. >> that might be one way to break loose. brian: he has two slogans going. finish the wall and keep america great. >> i think is he a little bit caught now because is he going to run correctly claiming credit for the best economy in a half century. it's hard to say let's make america great again if you have already made america great. but keep america great may work. could also run on don't let the other side destroy it which would be a pretty good slogan, too. ainsley: the president ran on the wall and cracking down on illegal immigration. he seems to be trying to do that. he says congress is holding him up. that congress could fix this in 45 minutes if they would get rid of chain migration, catch and release. visa lottery and. do you agree with the president when he says he could shut down the border. >> no. i think that the
consequences to the economy, to our relationship with mexico, to millions of families would be absurd. i would strongly urge the president not to try to shut down the border. we have so many people every day who go back and forth. we have so much economic goods on both sides. it would truly be a mess and it would frankly mess up the very economy he is proud of. you would have tremendous side effects from closing the border. steve: well, newt, julian castro running for president on the democratic side, he suggested yesterday let's decriminalize border crossers. he said this on msnbc. listen. >> i'm not buying into the bs that blaskly says that little children and mothers who are desperate and fleeing desperate circumstances are are a national security threat to our nation. i said that we should
decriminalize people who are coming here, crossing the border. steve: currently, under section 1325, it makes it illegal for people to enter the country illegally, it's been a federal misdemeanor since 1929. is it time to change that, newt? >> look, i think you have to give him credit for being honest. he is for open borders. the truth is the democratic party is the open border party. they would welcome any number of immigrants. they would l no longer be illegal because the border would be open. if you look worldwide i think the gallup world poll estimated you would probably have 165 million people decide to come to the u.s. if the border were open. so, you know, everybody in the country who thinks it would be great to have everybody on the planet who wants to come here show up, that would totally change everything. it would change our health
system it would change our tax structure. it would change the very nature of our culture. we have been a very open country with legal immigration. but we have expected people to become americans. once you open the border totally, you have no idea 10 years from now what kind of country you are going to live in. brian: absolutely. follow up real quickly on this. jay johnson comes out and says catastrophe and worse he has ever seen. some democrats saying that away from the camera say julian castro, would you go back in as speaker whether majority or minority and try to put something together? republicans should put something out there that democrats would vote on or not vote on. this is a legitimate catastrophe. data doesn't lie. would you do that today? >> yes. and i think both on the house and senate republicans ought to offer a common sense reforms. i have always said they ought to be offered individually not as -- you can't put together a big package. brian: right. >> because different pieces kill each other.
put together five or six common sense practical stepping, force them to a vote in the house if necessary, use a discharge petition. but it's absurd. the woman you just had on. why should americans have to have people who are here illegally outside their bedroom window for 20 or 30 minutes in the middle of night? why should that be part of being an american and the president on this issue is, i think, entirely right as commander-in-chief to say we have to get control of the border. ainsley: so democratic senators are now joining with some these house democrats with a bill to eliminate the electoral college. the amendment is being led by senator brian schatz from ohio and supported by dick durbin, dianne feinstein and kirsten gillibrand of new york who is also running for president. can you believe this? what do you think about it? >> >> look, i think if you want to set up a single nationwide count so we could have the palm beach story
nationwide then you could have the maximum for democrats to steal the election and the maximum percentage for democrats to have illegal immigrants voting. it's a terrific idea. i think anybody who believes in having a totally corrupt nationwide system ought to be in favor of it but if you think it's better to have a decentralized system and by the way, i want to see these candidates for president go to iowa. brian: yep. >> go to iowa and new hampshire and explain why they think in the future no presidential candidate should worry about any place except new york and california? brian: i know. the president should say that right away good luck in new hampshire with that stump speech. we hope to make you old news. steve: they are trying to say look he shouldn't be president because he lost the popular vote he only won the electoral college. newt, thank you very much for joining us live today. ainsley: thank you. >> good to be with you. steve: always a pleasure. brian: all right. meanwhile, it's always a pleasure to toss over jillian who is always poised

who she was. the way it usually works here in the city of chicago you have a big name and you get a big seat in politics. lori lightfoot didn't have that. so many people were saying who is this woman? what i can tell you that last night during her victory speech she addressed the elephant in the room. she talked about the segregation of the city. how your zip code determines the education oftentimes that your kids receive. and she also addressed public safety and unity for all, growing the city's dwindling population and continuing economic growth here in the city of chicago. her slogan since those signs hit the front lawns and ads hit tv bring in the light. she often referenced the word change. i think that's really what the city of chicago was seeking. that is why they voted her in office. that's what she did along with tony break winkle. there is no denying that the two strong women have changed what the face has been for the mayor of the city of chicago. lori lightfoot garnered 47%
of the votes. the race was called shortly after the polls closed. the former prosecutor acknowledged the issues of segregation that still exists in the city and the fact that she is openly gay. take a listen. >> out there tonight a lot of little girls and boys are watching: they are watching us. they are seeing a city reborn. a city where it doesn't matter what color you are. where it doesn't matte matter hw love, just as long as you love. >> and in less than an hour and 30 minutes. lori lightfoot will be here. that's why i'm outside of this train station. she will be here greeting those people who voted or didn't vote for her this morning. this will be her first stop. then she will head over to jesse jackson's operation push. live from the city of chicago, tia youn ewing fox 32

full service restaurants were forced to reduce employee hours and 36% cut jobs in 2018. our next guest owns several restaurants and a catering company here in new york and says the wage hike is hurting his bottom line. butch, the president of the dover group in new york and joins us now. you have restaurants all over this area. >> yes, i do. ainsley: and concession stands. how did this effect you the law changed december 31st, you had to start paying all your employees at least $15 an hour. >> minimum wage and became a very big challenge now. have to figure out ways not to reduce staff. we don't want to raise prices and hurt the customer. so ultimately you lose jobs. and people lose their hours on their paycheck and it became very costly to us. ainsley: your waiters are also busing tables and preparing food. >> you have expediter or a food runner, a busker, wait staff. now it just goes from wait staff to the table. three people lose hours and that's no good. ainsley: when i heard your story i used to wait tables.
it's stressful enough because i used to wake up with nightmares did i forget someone's appetizer if i had to do that and bus the table and prepare the food in the kitchen. something is going to fall through the crack. >> you drive through the area some stores for rent some restaurants. they can't afford it and stay in bismts sad they worked hard their whole life to get to this point in their career to have to close because minimum wage is raised. ainsley: calculate this for us, $15 an hour 40 hours a week. >> $600. >> times the number of weeks. >> $31,200. kids are coming out happy to get that as starting salary and getting minimum wage and more money to start and reduces the jobs for them they don't work, they stay home. ainsley: survey of expectations for 2019, 53% of limited service restaurants expect to cut jobs. 75% expect to reduce hours. when you heard this new law, that you were going to have to pay your employees $15 an hour, what was your reaction? >> we had to figure right
away how to make this money back. cut down concession sell hot dogs and soda. ainsley: shut those down. >> they are closed. those are done. those people lose jobs. younger children come out of high school or college we're not going to hire them. we can't afford to have them there how much more can you charge for basic food? people go out and spend $100 years ago. $100 doesn't mean anything anymore. ainsley: governor cuomo is his statement. increasing the minimum wage puts money in the pockets of hard working new yorkers creates more demand for local businesses and increases economic activity. do you agree? >> no. ainsley: why? >> if he wants to run for president he should be running a business. he is trying to run our business. people losing hours so they're making less money. they might make less money instead of working 40 hour in a shift. cutting people out. and there is no more little jobs or little parties. we don't do them anymore. it's done. ainsley: thank you so much, butch. this effects a lot of our
to turn their unsold seats into amazing deals, sports fans are seeing more away games. various: yeah-h-h! isn't that a fire hazard? uh, it's actually just a fire. priceline. every trip is a big deal. ainsley: straight to a fox news alert. the situation down at our border being treated like a natural disaster. listen. >> this is one, if not the biggest crisis this country faced in a decade. we're now treating this like a massive cat-5 hurricane disaster of. steve: u.s. border patrol agents busting illegals coming into the united states in front of fox news cameras. brian: griff jenkins saw it all the minute he landed. live in mcallen, texas. hey, griff. reporter: brian, we literally got numbers from last night,
preliminary numbers, 1200. that is 12 straight days of 1000 plus apprehensions. when we landed at the airport yesterday afternoon we drove straight to the border. we were in a helicopter and look what happened. you can see already the military helicopter up there, national guard, supporting border patrol just made this apprehension. we're looking through the slats. this is a temporary wall that stops illegals just about a quarter mile, half a mile to the direction you're looking. this fence stops them from coming into mcallen. this is just indicative of what is showing up, hour, hour after a day, hour after hour, day after day, it just keeps coming. you can see the manpower it takes. eyes in the sky helping on this apprehension. the reason why they're coming is the catch-and-release policy. they have had 12,000 in the last
12 days, guys. they can only hold 3300 in the capacity. they're holding more than 6,000. what they're doing immediately releasing them, dropping them after places like catholic charities of rio grande valley to the sister norma. doing it by bus, dropping off, 300, 500, it is something she says she never seen before. listen. >> those numbers have been so different and so high in compare to any other year before that. unbelievable the number of individual families that have been released in such great numbers. reporter: it is not just families. we know from friday, saturday, sunday, monday, there have been five criminals arrested. three were gang members. two belonging to ms-13. two sex offenders. fies. steve: griff, i'm confused, people apprehended, 1200 last night, how many are making and a
asylum claim? i thought mexico would keep a lot of those people in mexico until their day in court? >> well, the problem is, steve, a great number of them are claiming asylum, because they come over to surrender. some run like we saw. they're pretty much all claiming asylum. before they get sent back to mexico, they have to be processed here. our capacity to hold them, process, find out who they are, where they are from is overwhelmed. they have no place to put the people, many of them family units and children. so they're releasing them to the catholic charities. they're given a date to appear. they don't show up for court. ainsley: many of them don't. thank you so much, griff. steve: another busy night on the southern border. 1200 right there. ainsley: the president says he doesn't want to close the border he says there will be a negative impact but if it is necessary to keep our country safe he is willing to do it. listen. >> i'm ready to close it if i
have to close it. mexico as you know, as of yesterday they're starting to apprehend people at their southern border, coming from honduras, guatemala, el salvador. they're really apprehending thousands of people. the first time in decade that this has taken place. it should have taken place along time ago. mexico has the strongest immigration laws in the world. nobody has stronger. i guess some have the same but you can't get any stronger what mexico has. they say they will stop them. let's see. they have the power to stop them. they have the laws to stop them. brian: they were picking up, they picked up 1000 yesterday. they might have changed their point of view because they have been very lax, although a caravan is heading our direction. mexico may be getting the message the president will fulfill the promise to shut down the border unless something is done. ramifications would be tremendous. $1.7 billion worth of services flowing back and forth daily. the auto industry would be
crippled in about a week. 12 straight days, both companies could be put into recession. president is saying security over economics any day. my main job is to keep us safe. right now this border is not safe. steve: in the sound bite we played with the president in the oval office, he said of mexico, let's see what they do. in other words, this is many are like he is negotiating again. he said unless mexico does something to stop the surge of people across the southern border i'm going to close, i'm going to close our border. of course behind the scenes at the white house apparently they're talking about a plan b which would close the border to everything except commercial traffic, so that trucks, trains could continue to bring auto parts through, all sorts of things back and forth. we would not have much to the horror of many people an avocado shortage in for days. brian: talk about the mueller probe if we can. i thought attorney general barr was pretty clear. hey, i'm going to come down
may 1st, may 2nd, testify to the house and second. couple weeks he will be able to give the mueller report out. he has to make sure it is security cleared, grand jury testimony is redacted, i will hand it to you. that wasn't good enough for the house. april 2nd is the real deadline. we'll subpoena the entire report. doesn't seem like any democrat understands that the conclusions were made in five-pages. now they get the whole report. a lot of people do not agree the summary is accurate. ainsley: they're voting today. probably will pass because the democrats hold the seven-seat majority in the house but they're voting to subpoena the mueller report. the full report unredacted. steve: we all want to see it. they should release it, but here is the thing, what happened yesterday was democrats set a deadline of yesterday to release the mueller report and the department of justice ignored it. now, they're just finishing up, they're trying to take out stuff. apparently jerry nadler said yesterday, he is the guy who runs the judiciary committee, he
said, he is planning to work with the attorney general to minimize redactions and will only issue the subpoena if necessary. now what is interesting about this, there are a lot of democrats who are using this as a political issue saying we don't trust william barr's summary. so we want to see the whole thing. in fact that is what the former attorney general, eric holder says. listen to this. >> you look at the letter trying to figure out how much of this is barr, how much of this is mueller. how much is based on the mueller findings. but i think it all points to the fact at the end of the day congress, the public will have to have access to the mueller report. brian: wow, it is amazing how you feel now that you're a private citizen as opposed to deputy attorney general the starr report was coming out. the "washington examiner" did incredible job digging up eric holder march 1999, the exact date. he said this about the starr report. although legitimate concerns the
american people have right to know out come of officials the reporting requirement goes goes against most traditions and law enforcement and american ideals. when the shoe is on the other foot it is a different standard. ainsley: when he is democrat he didn't want full report release and when it is republican he does. steve: there are certain grand jury testimony, certain confidential things that they simply cannot by statute include, whatever they can include we need to see everything that is legal. brian: i agree with the president, no matter what happens with the 400 pages they bill say not enough. what about the underlying documents? there are over a million you know lying documents. steve: whatever was redacted. brian: they will want a million more besides the redactions. ainsley: kim strassel said they will take a little bit here, little bit there, change the narrative. brian: the american people are interested less and in the
mueller report. you can do this with the washington game. more and more people, candidates know it. americans are tuned out to the mueller report, especially the 400 pages come out. ainsley: what a waste to vote on this. waste of taxpayers dollars to do this, the report is coming out according to william barr in a few weeks anyway. steve: stay tuned. it is 8:09 in new york city, jillian joins with us fox news alert. jillian: you're making me, nervous. brian: you think i will fall? i have apple care. i feel like i'm living on the edge. jillian: good morning. we have serious news to get to. pilots, flying doomed ethiopian airlines plane followed boeing's emergency protocol moments before the crash.

♪ steve: georgia's governor, brian kemp is expected to sign the state's heartbeat bill which would ban abortions after a heartbeat is detected. some in hollywood are threatening to boycott tv or film production in the state of georgia. georgia state representative, jenny earhardt sponsored the bill. she joins us live in atlanta. >> good morning, steve. thank you for having me. steve: what would the heartbeat bill do? >> essentially the heartbeat bill in the state of georgia provide protects for unborn children, at point detectable human heartbeat is discovered. we recognize that those unborn babies to be distinct individuals, living human beings worthy of protection in the state of georgia but the bill goes a step further than that it recognizes personhood of that
child, which is an important distinction to make in terms of protecting that unborn child. we place great value on human life in georgia. i am very proud to represent a legislature, and a governor, governor brian kemp willing to take the bold steps to protect the unborn children, those georgians, who in our opinion have every right to live, work and prosper in the state of georgia. steve: what the heartbeat bill does changing the law. currently you can have a abortion up to 20 weeks. this would back it down to something like six weeks. that is one of the reasons there are a number of celebritys who are threatening to boycott georgia over the heartbeat bill. what is your reaction to their concern? >> georgia currently, number one state in the country for doing business. we enjoyed that wonderful distinction for six years in a row now. so we place a tremendous value on our film industry, our movie industry here in georgia.
we love the fact that that has played an important role in us being a pro-business state. i can say that i do not believe some of the vocal movie stars and people in the movie industry have been more vocal represent the entirety of the film industry. we are very pro-film state. however we're very pro-life state. i do not think the two things are mutually exclusive. steve: okay. >> i can tell you we've seen activism, shall we say agitation around the capitol the past month. steve: there are certain instances where an abortion is necessary. there are carveouts in the law, right? >> absolutely. that is also an important distinction. this bill is a compromise. it does not overturn roe v. wade. what is does balances the rights and interests of the mother with the rights of that unborn child. it is a balance. and in speaking to the balance and needs of the mother we have
recognized those important distinctions which in the case of rape or incest, in a situation where the mother's health is in question. certainly the case whether or not that baby is medically viable and able to live outside of the womb. recognizing those things are important to upholding the rights of those women, we have included that language in the bill. steve: by the fact that you have moved, the number down to six weeks, essentially that is when you in your legislation are suggesting that personhood starts, right, at six weeks after conception? >> exactly. yes. i mean for centuries the heartbeat has been a discernible intangible indication of life. the absence after heartbeat indicates death. the presence of a heartbeat indicates life. that is what this bill is attempting to do. that is what we're seeking to define, how we are seeking to define personhood. as i said, as relates to the movie industry and film industry. i have been at capitol for all
of three months. i have seen a couple of folks down from the film industry at the capital. we don't believe they represent the entirety of the industry. they come to georgia because it is a wonderful place to work. we hope they respect our political interests, our moral direction in our state. steve: very good. ginny earhardt freshman representative in georgia. thank you for joining us, telling us your story. >> thank you for having me. steve: you bet. what do you think about that? email us at email@example.com. we're also on facebook. the media admits there is a crisis at the southern border, just not the crisis you would expect. >> u.s., listen to this, would run out of avocados in three weeks. >> the move could be particularly tough for you avocado lovers out there. steve: mollie hemingway joins us next. ♪

♪ jillian: good morning and welcome back. quick headlines out of washington. 2020 hopeful kamala harris wants dreamers to work on capitol hill. she is sponsoring a bill lifting a ban on daca recipients getting intern jobs and apprenticeships. she said they should be allowed to work for their country. stephanie murphy says, the idea the greatest democracy, the
greatest capitalist system in the world we're having casual conversation about socialism offend me. of the murphy the first vietnamese-american congresswoman, calls herself a proud capitalist. ainsley: many in the media con to say there is no crisis down at the border but guess what they're concerned about? an avocado crisis. >> the u.s., listen to this, would run out of avocados in three weeks if president trump shuts down the border with mexico. >> the move could be particularly tough for you avocado lovers out there. >> according to the data from the u.s. department of agriculture it, would be three weeks before avocados run out in this country. ainsley: here to weigh in senior editor for "the federalist," mollie hemingway. >> great to be here. ainsley: great to see you. the president said there would be negative impact if he has to close the border but more important is national security. do you agree? >> this media coverage shows, some people look at the border
crisis they're worried about rule of law, they're worried about national sovereignty, the humanitarian crisis or drugs flow over the border. those are very serious concerns, also economic impact from a possible shutdown, that is serious. whether the media gets breakfast with avocado toast instead of pressing issues, shows how unserious they are about the big issue. ainsley: reports shows almost half of our veg business, 40% of our fruit comes from mexico. i understand the president's issue and his stance on this do you think he should shut down the border? >> i'm not even sure about that but the idea behind shutting down the border there would be two issues there. one there are some people flowing over the border, there are so so many people flowing over parts of the border that are not currently guarded they need shut down entry to monitor those areas and drug flow. you want to have a little bit of hurt so people are incentivized to do something about the
situation. that is true not just in this country but other countries. facing economic consequences for not taking this problem seriously, not doing enough to stop it is one of the ways you make people care more about it. in this country where we should be most concerned there are things our legislatures should be doing, closing loopholes. we have laws that incentivize trafficking children. having children come as unaccompanied minors or people coming with children they get a free entry into the country. these are things our lawmakers should be worried about right now. ainsley: why aren't they, molly? >> for a lot of people, a lot of elite people don't face negative consequences of a porous border the way the rest of the country does. this is really a bipartisan problem going back decades. we have known these problems were coming. we've known this crisis is looming. we don't have very serious people making tough decisions to enforce rule of law or spend the money or change the laws necessary to change the situation. and even the fact that there is humanitarian crisis or other
props does not seem to motivate people. if avocados motivate people, then maybe it's a good thing. ainsley: they need the avocado toast, molly. >> i'm a big fan of avocados, tequilas, lime, but there are bigger issues. ainsley: me too. great to see you, molly. >> thank you. ainsley: when will republicans unveil the health care plan? president trump says after the 2020 election. >> we have to get back the house. you know what? you will win back the house. i think one of the strongest things you have, because people don't like obamacare. we forgot it. ainsley: is that the right move? sean spicer on that subject combing up next. ♪ great news, liberty mutual customizes... uh uh, i deliver the news around here. sources say liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need.

of elections, you know what? that will be a campaign issue up to 2020 and after that, it will be something a new republican majority house and senate will vote on. is that a good idea, to kick it way undo the can, way down the street? >> it is not that far down. three things. one, you get clear impression this is something he cares deeply about in terms of health care. he understands how personal to people that they love. two, he understands that obamacare is a disaster. three, clearly, now he understands the political nature of this, in terms of the runaway that you need. we tried this at the beginning of this white house. steve: didn't go well. >> we came up one vote short. brian: but you had no plan. a skinny repeal is no plan. >> at the end of the day look, there is no second place. you didn't get it but i think the president recognizes we need the house and senate completely lined up. it will never get through a democratic senate or democratic house with nancy pelosi at the top of that. he is right to make it a
campaign issue. we need to lay out a full plan for the american people, contrast what we will offer, what they will offer. we'll offer lower costs more accessibility. how people will be allowed to keep their doctors. those are all things that health care is very personal decision. either you gotten sick or loved one. i understand that i think the president wants to get it right. that is the right call. brian: evidently lost the house, according to kevin mccarthy, lost 60 points on health care. one issue carried the day for democrats is health care. the president is right you just don't have the votes -- >> point i made at the beginning is important. there needs to be a runway for something like this. not like tax reform. when you tell people cut taxes, great, get it done. with health care because it serves personal you need to go out to explain to people what is happening. change can be very, very scary, especially whatp people went through with obamacare. a ton of promises weren't delivered upon. if you do this, make sure we do it right, build a grassroots
coalition, go out to sell the change that will happen. explain to people how it will be better to them. make sure we have enough time to educate and listen to the american people what is going on in health care, how we can do it right. ainsley: life or death. health care is so important to people. why it is different than taxes the you're right. let's change gears. the media fawning over mayor pete. the mayor of south bend, indiana. his name is pete buttigieg. >> he needs a name. beto, robert francis o'rourke should give him a cute name. >> montage of all the anchors trying to pronounce his name. listen how the media is fawning over this guy. >> he is disarmingly charming. got almost like a innocence about him but at the same time he is intellectual. >> everyone that interacts with him is just blown away by him. >> he is on fire. >> there is no dirt on this guy,
like nothing. usually candidates have some skeletons, somewhere, but even his skeletons are singing his praises. steve: people are sing his praises. a lot of people don't know what his agenda is. so the producers put together some of his agenda includes the much talked about green new deal, wealth tax, single-payer health plan, amnesty for illegals, packing the supreme court. so that is something ha i don't think a lot of people realize but at the same time, he raised a lot of money. >> he has not even announced yet, right? he hasn't announced yet, raised over $1.7 million. there are over 15 candidates that have jumped in already. they will will be a flavor of te week. they will go from one to another. think about the contrast that you have. one he is exploding on social media, in the polls, biden and sanders, the two white device leading the polls. when it comes to social media interactions, the amount of
chatter going on, he is up at the top. another candidate, yang is up there. the democratic party is really interesting when you look at the disparity between who their candidates are, right? you have the total amount of experience in washington, biden and sanders who have been in the senate a long time. you have these neophytes. the question you ask yourself, what is the party searching for? one hand one week they want the guy has never done anything, barely got elected, 37 years old. on other hand 70 plus-year-old crowd who has been in washington forever? you will see churn in the democratic party in weeks to come, everyone of the debates, town halls, somebody will rise and fall. this is speed dating for democrats. love somebody one week, dump him and find the next individual. brian: there are so many to speed date 17. real quick is joe biden dead in the water with the problems with his son and china and ukraine and now four women? >> you referenced this. this connection that he has to ukraine. his son was onboard of company
allegedly doing, potentially doing some deals to help grease the skids. that will become a bigger problem for him because it really goes to the heart of this idea of a swamp an corruption that president trump has tapped into through his campaign. i think he will have a hard time coming out of the gates. it took him two years to get to this point. hard to get to the edge of that cliff saying i don't want to go. even if he gets off i think it is sad. he had this distinguished career, watch him go down in flames is -- brian: he tried twice, went down in flames twice. >> he rehabilitated himself. my guess end of the day, right now these two issues converge, he doesn't get in. ainsley: shows how quickly things change in politics. i think he missed his chance. >> we'll see. president trump would probably still beat him last cycle too. he knew that. there is a reason he didn't get n i think president trump would beat him this time. steve: going back to the previous topic about mayor pete

treat people as disposable. think about standard minimum wage. when the raise minimum wage, business has to raise price of products. who gets hurt there? poor households. more poor households have more than one person working minimum wage. i would have two people working $13 an hour, instead of one making $15 an hour that is the consequences. if i'm a business person, i want to be able to reward great workers. in this sense, you reward bad workers and punish good workers. brian: unless you give them a raise. that cuts into your margin. >> but that gets back to raising prices though, right? the bottom line, if you want to talk about people being disposable. her idea of standard minimal wage, snuffs out the ambitions of the person at this company who could excel. why would i excel if the person who is not working hard gets the sail pay that i get? ironically, if they were talking
about erasing these sort of standards, letting people go in and excel on their own merit, that would actually have more potential. steve: ainsley interviewed a guy whos ha a bunch of restaurants in the new york city area, he said the whole minimal wage thing destroyed the workforce the they had a lot more people working for them until this kicked in. suddenly he let all these people go. ainsley: he shut down concessions. they sell hotdogs. i can only -- steve: needs to start 7-dollar croissants. >> i think her former boss had to close the business down because of higher minimum wages. even in new york city, these schemes no longer allowed to tip or putting in communal thing. if someone gives you excellent service, they should be rewarded. all you're doing rewarding minimal effort. brian: charles, isn't the equation that since so few jobs you have to pay more for talent at any level and that is the way the economy will raise wages as
opposed to government artificially raising wages? >> we're in the midst of that right now. we are in the midst of that right now. this is almost becoming a moot conversation with respect to $15. you may start hearing $19 minimum wage. the fact of the matter, our economy is so strong right now, that the lower households, the lower earning households enjoying biggest races. something came out last week that blew me away. right now wages are growing across this country, more people are sharing prosperity than anytime since 1966. steve: that is amazing. >> how amazing is that? that is how it works. steve: the place that was closed, a union square coffee shop i'm told. >> all right. great, thank you. brian: all right, charles. ainsley: coming up next. check the makeup bag, that mascara and lipstick it could be expired. steve: they expire? ainsley: spring cleaning tip you probably didn't even know about coming up next. brian: before bill hemmer checks up the makeup bag i have to toss
