3:00 am
as a giant display. the man trying to rip a fool attached to a security device and it all comes tumbling down on him. police are looking for him. >> jillian: also not the sharpest tool in the shed. rob: two examples of these dull tools. jillian: have a good day. ♪ steve: 6:00 in new york city we start this hour of "fox & friends" with a fox news alert. and an exclusive an up close look at the crisis at our southern border in the rio grand valley. brian: you have border agents fighting through rough terrain and a surge of 200 illegal immigrants appear prehengedded in just hours in front of our cameras. ainsley: griff jenkins watched it all unfold and he joins us now in mcallen, texas. griff? >> good morning, brian, ainsley and steve. i'm just feet from the border here in mcallen. the border patrol is stretched thin. they are overwhelmed. they are tired and they have had a surge of migrants that is unbelievable, topping
3:01 am
10-year highs. but when some of those migrants don't want to be caught, it hasn't stopped the dedication or drive of our men in the green uniform. watch. >> it's unbelievably difficult terrain. gloves torn. these men rushing through here. we found a group. this is the first one we found, just nothing but thorns, bushes, bugs, snakes, spiders. this is a spotlight you can see -- there they are. they have two more. >> both of them tried to run. this one here was hiding underneath this brush on my left. this one right here got up from the brush and took off running southbound. i was able to get him before he went that away. griff: this the brush right here where the last illegal crosser laid down and herman had to crawl in like this and go through these bushes and thorns. it's just treacherous. there are other challenges on the border. we h as you mentioned, brian, nearly 200 of the family units surrendering to
3:02 am
our agents. agent herman rivera, while we were having groups of 50 or 60 coming to us just a half a mile up or down the border to our east or west. we had smuggling efforts. won't stop coming. it was 12,000 in the last 12 days. yesterday we will find out what today's numbers are. they will be high again. we have the problem with where to put them. they can only take 3300 in the detention custody area here. they have got 6,000. the numbers are going the wrong direction. we wecht into the processing center yesterday, and saw just how hard they are getting hit. they have $12.5 million in their budget for the facility for fiscal year 19. and they have already spent that. they are going to need more money as well. this as secretary nielsen will make a trip today to humayuma, arizona. while some are fearing the president might shut the border down the president will travel to the border on friday to calexico, california, guys. brian: griff, we understand catch and release is back.
3:03 am
the a.p. reporting over the air in the new mexico sector letting thousands greyhound buses and go into the city because they have nowhere to put them. are you guys at that situation around there where people are just catch and release is back in full force? absolutely, brian. the processing center where we were at yesterday which is where they go before they are put into a detention center. there is space for 1500. they have 2400. i asked a woman in charge in our off camera briefing. i said what are you going to do with them? she said we have no choice but to release them. likely go to the catholic charities sister peopl pimentel. they don't want to churn them on the streets where they are vulnerable. the faster they are released and when they are reiss leelsed those who seek to not go through the proper asylum process who want to
3:04 am
get released they are calling back home and the imagine 234e9 and draw to make that 3,000-mile journey is growing stronger. ainsley: griff, what if they are caught with drugs on them? do they go to prison or detention centers, too where they are caught and released? >> case by case. but they will be prosecuted if they are smuggling. and the group we went in after, which took several hours, you should see our producer, a.j., is he covered in marks across his face because it's covered in stick thorns. evading capture they will be prosecuted and likely deported. woe thought there were 11 in there. we captured 8 of them. if you evade being apprehended you will be likely deported quickly. steve: all right. griff jenkins along with a.j. hall on our southern border in mcallen. thank you very much. it does sound if the president has been backing off i will close the border unless mexico helps he is
3:05 am
out. yesterday he actually praised the tougher mexico enforcement of our border rules. we had told you yesterday they were thinking about a plan b where they close the border but they let commercial traffic go back and forth. but here's the critical number. and that is during the month of march, when there were, you know, the suggestion is 100,000 migrants heading that way, only 90% of them went in places that were not the port. only 10% of the illegals were apertured at the ports. 90% went between the ports. in other words, if you close the ports, you close the road, that's going to have little effect on illegals. i think they realize that. ainsley: that makes sense. that's why the president is say going we close some of these borders and take the patrol officers and put them in the will dessert areas. brian: kirstjen nielsen is going to go to the border today and be there most of the afternoon and the president is going to san diego tomorrow and hopefully something comes out of
3:06 am
congress because that's where this thing is goings to be solved. the wall is a separate issue. meanwhile raúl ortiz is a chief rio grand valley sector and he talked to sean what he had seen. >> certainly experiencing a crisis. so far this sector has seen 141,000 apprehensions this fiscal year. just in the last 24 hours we have made over 1200 arrests. we seized 30 pounds of cocaine. 400 pounds of marijuana. all of us are stretched awfully awfully thin right now. we need to make some changes to the loopholes out there and deter this traffic from actually crossing. steve: speaking of texas. yesterday, about 15 miles from dallas in allen, texas. ice had one of the largest workplace raids they have ever had. they arrested 280 workers at a tech repair company. apparently they were working in the country with forged documents, something like that. they got tips from people who were working there. and they went in.
3:07 am
arrested 280 people. yesterday. ainsley: we told you yesterday that the house judiciary committee was going to be voting on whether or not the democrats really want to see the full mueller report unredacted. they want that classified information in their hands. they voted yesterday to authorize the subpoena so, they are subpoenaing or could be subpoenaing the doj to turn over that full mueller report. brian: don't worry about it if you are a mueller person or you are the attorney general justice department. because in 2012, they asked for the fast and furious documents from eric holder. they got them in 2016. and then you get all the documents. he was out of office by then. this subpoena that hasn't been issued yet but jerry nadler holds in his hand is likely going to do no good. flat out symbolism to appease his base, perhaps he would have to answer that under sodium pentothal. one of the things he is going to get, jerry nadler is the report and also a demand to speak to the attorney general. the attorney general has
3:08 am
promised to speak to them may 1st and may 2nd. this was a total show vote. steve: ultimately, jerry nadler who is the head of that committee, he says, okay, i have got the subpoena right here. and we will use it if we're not satisfied with what the attorney general releases. rudy giuliani was on with laura on last night and said this about how partisan politics have infected what's going on in capitol hill. >> i think they are actually proving that they are basically rabid, partisan democrats who should not be investigating something where you have to have some degree of objectivity and fairness. they have no regard for the constitution or the laws. the president actually can't have it all out, either. he can't override the law. he can't say okay, the grand jury secrecy doesn't matter. only a judge can do that under very, very narrow circumstances. these people are lawless. they are a joke. i mean, they there are laws
3:09 am
in this country. republicans get the benefit of laws. not just democrat. ainsley: rush limbaugh also weighed in on this. listen. >> this is going to be a real test of the american judiciary and our criminal, legal justice system. democrats are convinced that there is evidence of collusion. they think there is evidence in there. and they think that's what some of the stuff will be redacting. the democrats and nadler want every bit of salacious dirt and they want the attorney general -- they are demanding with this subpoena that he violate the law. there are people saying that this subpoena demanding that barr break the law and turn over everything is just a stunt. that nadler knows full well that barr is not going to turn this stuff over as he is demanding it. brian: unredacted as well. meanwhile, you know this was coming as we get ready to
3:10 am
get the 400-page plus mueller report. now we find out from investigators who are have a source owho did the mueller investigation "the washington post" confirmed the story. the "new york times" says that the summary is this: this is an excerpt from the article. the officials and others interviewed declined to flesh out why some of the special counsel's investigators viewed their findings as potentially more damaging for the president than mr. barr explained. although the report is believed to have examined mr. trump's efforts to thwart the investigation. what i should have read before that the investigators indicate that it is more serious than mr. barr lid on with his four page summary. steve: they didn't say how. brian: they didn't say how. some members of the mueller team are concerned that mr. barr created the first narrative of the special counsel's findings. the hardened before the views became public. this is mainly thought to be about obstruction, not collusion. steve: it's unnamed sources and how many times have the "new york times" gotten
3:11 am
stuff from the muellers wrong. it will be interesting to see when it all comes out. apparently the people who talked to the "new york times" and "the washington post" from the mueller team, they were upset that mr. barr didn't actually just take a look at their report because in each chapter there was a summary. and so why don't you just put our summary out? why did you have to do your own summary? they are steamed about that. although according to the department of justice which spoke to the "the washington post" yesterday, they said there was all sorts of stuff in the summary, including grand jury information, confidential stuff, things that cannot be released at this time. ainsley: it was anonymously sourced. very vegas. the people who worked on the mueller team. some of them are saying according to this article that barr's report was incorrect. brian: james comey what he did to hillary clinton. he said i'm not going to indict her but look at all the bad things she did. barr is trying to avoid that he is saying these are the conclusions, i'm going to leave it at that meanwhile,
3:12 am
11 minutes after the hour. jillian, great to he so you. jillian: good to see you as well. i love seeing you in person. get you caught up on news starting with a fox news alert. just moments ago officials releasing their first report on the doomed ethiopian airlines plane. cockpit recorder showing the crew performed all emergency procedures but could not stop the jet from crashing killing all 157 people on board. investigators still don't know whether to blame the boeing control system. this was the second deadly incident involving 737 max jets. they are grounded around the world. this is a wild story. a teenager claims he is a boy missing for seven years. police reportedly waiting on d.n.a. tests to confirm whether the 14-year-old is timothy pitten. he says he escaped from kidnappers and ran to get help. timothy was last seen at wisconsin water park with his mother in 2011. she killed herself and left a note saying her son would never be found. police now looking for two men in a ford suv with

3:18 am
>> hi, ainsley. ainsley: let's start with bernie sanders presidential candidate saying thousands will die if president trump gets his way. listen. >> if trump gets his way the cost of health insurance for you will be so high that people won't be able to afford it and thousands of people will literally die. is that true fact or fiction. >> fiction. bombastic claim making right now. is he combining two things. first of all, if trump gets his way, he will actually be decreasing healthcare costs. everything the trump administration is working towards right now is a decrease cost bernie sanders is talking about increasing access to everyone. you know what? you can't increase access without decreasing costs. if you do that you will get exactly what he is calling for in his medicare for all plan which is the canadian's version on steroids. you will get rationed care. we haven't that. look what's going on 50 to 75,000 canadians every year coming to the u.s. for their treatment. where is mic jag gear
3:19 am
getting his heart surgery from this week new york city. is he not a u.s. citizen. i don't think he is. he is not here full time people come to the united states because we have great access to care. president trump decrease the cost of care if you decrease cost you will increase access to care. just because he is not jumping on board the single payer plan doesn't mean people are being stripped of healthcare coverage. ainsley: that's good to know. senator chuck schumer on the president's politically motivated move. watch this one the potential consequences of this politically motivated room skyrocketing costs for families. massive increases in prescription drug spending for seniors on medicare. women charged more because they are a woman. seniors charged for because of their age. ainsley: fact or fiction? >> fiction here. let's be honest senator schumer likes to blame trump
3:20 am
for everything. the democrats are mad because president trump is getting rid of their sneaky plan of implementing single pair healthcare. working on lowering healthcare costs. is he taking the medicare high earners, increasing their cost sharing bear. he is reintroducing insurance plans. medicaid block granting counter the efforts to decrease the costs. what senator schumer is talking about the doj siding with the lower court saying that the aca is unconstitutional. this does not equate to stripping people of their coverage. what this does is lay as you clear path for the republicans to come up with their responsible replacement plan after the 2020 election. is he definitely lining his ducks in a row, president trump is, he is ready to take over healthcare as soon as that election is done. ainsley: okay, dr. saphier, thank you. i'm learning our fab blues producers did fact checking. mic jag gear duelship. >> good for him.

steve: we have got some quick headlines for you on this thursday morning. first up elon musk heads to court today the fec is claiming the tesla ceo violated a 2018 settlement deal. it required musk to have his tweets about the company -- car company approved before he starts tweeting them. well the feds say he broke it with the february tweet about incorrect tesla production numbers. the fec has hit musk for $40 in fines. actress lori loughlin and
3:25 am
flevment free on bail after appearing in boston court on wednesday. they are both charged in the massive college admission scandal. that didn't stop loughlin from smiling at the fans. >> lori, lori, lori, pay for my tuition. lori. >> dozens of parents are accused of paying bribes, thousands of dollars worth to get their children into elite colleges. that is some of the news, brian. brian: if lori is watching don't pay for that girl's tuition. that's what got you in trouble to begin with border state lawmakers doubling down on president trump's call for stronger security. >> the border needs security measures. i'm talking about a wall, a physical barrier. boots on the ground. technology, and surveillance. brian: and arizona would know. so while the fight escalates here at home, overseas border walls are going one very little fanfare. in pakistan, for example, officials set to border barrier with iran to keep people out. this after already building
3:26 am
a barrier on its border with afghanistan so why can't the u.s. do the same and does it work? here to weigh in todd benson senator for immigration studies. todd no, doubt about it when iran gets hit suicide bomber their fences go up. no doubt about it when you have no control over a tribal area the way to protect your people is to put a fence up. would l. that be effective? >> well, that's the problem with pakistan and afghanistan. it's a terrorist infiltration border nightmare between afghanistan and pakistan where you have the taliban and the haqqani network and al qaeda moving back and forth between those two borders for years and years. pakistan is finally putting up a very long, pretty stout wall between those two countries. it's going to be 1600 miles long. costs about $500 million. that should probably put a
3:27 am
pretty good end to the cross border pattern of travel there. brian: you also note in hungary they were worried about 400,000 illegal immigrants coming into their country. what they did was didn't wait for permission from the eu or anybody else, they put up a fence and wall and how effective has that been? >> that's right. i just came back from hungary. i visited that wall and toured it, in 2015 there was the migrant crisis that was, you know, sending millions of migrants from muslim majority countries passing through gunk hungary. hungary said we are not going to do this anymore. they had military put up 330-mile barrier in about four months and the statistics show that it went from 400,000 to, you know, 300. brian: overwhelmingly same results when israel did the same. they are worried about their border. next, us.
3:28 am
what could we do on a 2,000-mile border by picking the right areas with these steel slats that we have been considering? >> the fences that we have been talking about are not steel slats. the one between pakistan and afghanistan, for instance, is chicken wire, about 13 feet high with a lot of barbed wire. the one in hungary is mostly chain-linked with a lot of raiserazor wire just to give you an idea between 2006 and 2009. the united states is able to put up, i want to say, 400 about 550 miles of border in a pretty short period of time with vehicle barriers. it took a little bit of time, different kinds of walls require different kinds of installation. of course, we have legal
3:29 am
issues, imminent domain and things like that as well to contend with that. pakistan doesn't have to worry about. brian: right. >> hungary either. brian: bill clinton built some of the wall, george bush built some of the wall. barack obama built some of the wall and donald trump wants to finish the wall. that's the problem because his name is president trump. todd, thanks so much for joining us today. appreciate your expertise. >> thanks for having me. brian: all right. 30 minutes before the top of the hour. we move ahead. fox news will host a town hall tonight with former starbucks ceo howard schultz. todd piro is having breakfast with friends ahead of the big event in kansas city. todd? todd: good morning to you. it's a very todd heavy block here. one todd and then another todd. it's not about me. it's about the ladies coming up on "fox & friends." we will be talking about all the big issues of the day in light of this big town hall where they will be talking about the big issues of the day. if there is one common theme

independently of the fact we need to make this economy work for you all. steve: that was an al sharpton event last night. so people who would like to be president of the united states. tonight on fox news channel you will see former starbucks ceo howard schultz. he is going to be doing a town hall with bret and martha, starts at 6:30 tonight. you will be able to see it here right on fox. brian: he claims i will be on all 50 states despite having a party to back him. ainsley: in kansas city. watch it tonight. you see there 6:30. todd piro is in kansas city. he is having breakfast at the corner cafe. hey, todd. todd: hey, guys, good morning to you. they will be talking about the issues tonight. we decided to get a head start and talk about the issues today. big issue we are talking about amongst this table immigration. we begin with meanged. she works for the department of defense and she is frustrated with congress over immigration. why? >> congress needs to reform
3:35 am
their laws, we feel like on both sides of the aisle nobody is moving off of it to make any of these changes. we're the only country in the world where somebody can come across the border, have a baby, and all of a sudden the baby has citizenship. so it's very frustrating as a taxpayer that we end up paying out of pocket for these things. todd: the mainstream media says this is not a crisis. you disagree. why? >> absolutely. i mean, the number of people that are coming across the border, they just released some new numbers the other day. i mean, there are towns coming in to america and we're losing track of where they are going, what they are doing. are they tax paying citizens? are they going to lower the minimum wage rate? so there is just a lot of things that play into economics of the united states. and, yes, it's absolutely a crisis with the number of people coming over. todd: meansd, thank you for your time. wendy, also a federal government worker, you say secure the border by whatever means necessary. what do you mean?
3:36 am
>> so, you know, we elect government officials because they are supposed to have our best interest at heart as a country and protect our country. so i may not have the answers. i don't have all the information they have. but, i certainly depend on the government as a citizen to secure the border. so if that means build a wall. if it meaned a additional patrols or personnel, i just want the border secured. todd: wendy, thank you. connie works in customer service. you say you don't want a wall but something needs to be done. why do you say that? >> something definitely needs to be done. the wall, every prototype of the wall has been breached within a matter of hours. the wall isn't going to stop the problem, i don't think. but what i would support would be more work with the countries where living conditions are so bad that people have to flee to work with those countries to help them develop and also, to keep security tight and decrease the number of people that can come in. todd: connie, thank you for your time.

we're going back to wendy because we are here in missouri. about 60 minutes, 45 minutes some estimates away from steve doocy's alma matter, ku. university of kansas. they have an interesting class there called angry white male's class started in the fall. wendy got fired up about that when we were talking about it earlier. why? >> i don't understand the points of the class. you know, we have college kids get into debt every day in this country right now. so you are going to take a class on angry white males. it's not going to help you, i don't think so, in the professional world. i think it's going to increase feelings of hatred and anger in the country that we really don't need anymore of. and, you know, you can empower women in other ways other than tearing down men. right? we all need to build each other up and this class certainly doesn't help with that. todd: wendy and connie as well. jacques back to you. doocy. ainsley: all right, todd, thank you very much.

great report at the corner. ainsley: i can't believe they have a class called that. steve: who knew? ainsley: tonight in kansas city howard schultz is going to be sitting on the couch with bret baier and martha maccallum. if you want to know more about his platform. brian: the audience better brings their a game like jillian does every single day. jillian: every single day, thanks, brian. adults living in a compound where a dead toddler was found about l. not face the death penalty. charged with kidnapping the boy in georgia and bringing him to new mexico and refused to treat his seizures. the boy's father and four other suspects are also facing terrorism charges u they are accused of plotting attacks on police officers and government workers u a man hunts is underway for two skateboarders accused of extreme vandalism at presidential grave sight. surveillance photos show them defacing memorials for former president gerald ford and first lady betty ford at the ford presidential library in grand rapids,

existed obscure statute. law of the land a federal statute the chair of the house ways and means committee and/or meaning they don't have to act together the chair of the senate finance committee can ask for anybody's tax returns and the secretary, meaning the secretary of the treasury for whom the irs works, shall furnish them. they don't have to give a reason. the chair can get them, any amount of them, the president is right. he was being a little sass car stick why go back six years no, limitation and they don't have to give a reason for it. but they do have to keep it secret and controversial, that's the rub. they probably don't want to keep it secret and confidential and they have a way not to do it. do you remember when senator feinstein got her hands on 6,000 page report on torture, president obama said don't release it, even john brennan said don't release it went to the floor on the senate and released it with immunity. if these tax returns goes to the house ways and means committee and any member of congress gets them the tax

3:55 am
like americans are about as confused and struggling put branches of government as bernie sanders might be looking at a supply and demand curve from a economics 101 course. we need to start by identifying the scope of this problem. and here is really from a constitutional structure standpoints why it's so important. every constitution day i hear all sorts of people talking about bill of rights and how the bill of rights shut anchor of all that we are great. look, i love the first amendment. i love free speech. i love freedom of ledge. second amendment. it right to bear arms. in the homes. okay? what famously makes america great is actually not the bill of rights. justice antonin scalia the conservative icon on the supreme court for deck wadz was saying every continue pot can have a bill of rights. the stall inist constitution in the soviet union in 1936 purported to have a bill of rights. it's actually structure that dictates destiny.
3:56 am
so far we are not naming the three branches of government, it is the separation of powers, those three branches that secure liberty by diffusing power. it is our federalist sister of dual spheres of sovereignty between faith and federal government that secure power. so we need to start by identifying this problem. talking about why constitutional structure is so important. distinction n. contrast distinction to the bill of rights. steve: your mom's fourth grade teacher say they should start at second grade by the time they get to high school and college, it's too late. >> it's way too late. we have these many rogue come on campus reeking havoc, trying to shut down free speech. my boss at the daily wire ben shapiro faces this every time he speaks on college campus. we saw what happened with ben and his security team having to pay a half a million dollars even more than that so they could give a frickin' speech. this really is a problem. it needs to start way, way earlier than that i think second grade is totally appropriate. steve: and, of course, it's

subpoenaing of robert mueller's report. they don't trust the four page summary of what is in it. jerry nadler is not going to demand that the department of justice turn it over immediately. he is going to wait to see what mr. barr, and the department of justice release, you know, by the middle of april as they go through the -- just under 400 pages, apparently, of the mueller report. ainsley: democrats voted to authorize the subpoena. he says i have got the subpoena. i'm going to see what the redactions and the final report, if we are not happy, then we can subpoena to see the whole thing. here is jerry nadler, he is the chairman of house judiciary. >> we are giving the republicans the opportunity to debate and vote on subpoenas which is different -- which they didn't give us. we are going to work with the attorney general and and for a short period of time. if that doesn't work out if a very short order we will issue the subpoenas. we are not willing to let

4:09 am
indicate that there is potentially more damaging information than a.g. barr let on. that, according to people who know investigators. they did provide summaries for the 300 plus page report. a.g. barr did not use them because they included grand jury information as well as top secret information. so that's why they wrote their own page summary which assistant a.g. rod rosenstein signed off on. steve: meanwhile in other political news, the president got a big win yesterday. the senate and once again along party line votes, they decided to use the nuclear option. and because the president has had so much trouble getting his members of the cabinet and judges confirmed, what they have done now is rather than that 60-vote rule, they have gone back to a simple majority is all it's going to take. rather than 30 hours of debate, down to two. ainsley: right? these are the lower level
4:10 am
judicial and agency nominees. they used to be able to sit there and drill them with questions and have 30 hours. steve: 30 hours. ainsley: now they have lowered it down to two. steve: unbelievable. ainsley: all the democrats in the senate oppose the move. here is mitch mcconnell, republican majority leader, versus senate minority leader chuck schumer. watch. >> our colleagues across the aisle have chorve to endlessly relitigate the 2016 election. rather than actually participate in governing. this problem goes deeper than today. we're talking about the future of this very institution. and the future functioning of our constitutional government. >> two hours for a lifetime appointment is unacceptable. two hours for a lifetime appointment with huge influence on people's lives, is unacceptable. it's ridiculous. brian: he only has himself to blame by doing nonstop

four corners offense that used to be before the 30-second clock in college basketball. they have put it to the point where after two and a half years donald trump can't get judges confirmed. can't get people into their spaces. you have people who give up their jobs, expose themselves to extensive background checks who just wait in the hopper for their day to get confirmed. or even rejected. it doesn't happen. schumer delayed it to the point where action had to be taken. he waited two years. i actually think it's great for democrats, too. if a democratic president wants somebody in their place, they should not be dragged out and we should not be playing short in order for people to play political games. it hurts the country. ainsley: that's right. steve: big win for the president as he tries to put people in jobs. all right. 7:11 now in new york city. ainsley: and jillian has headlines. jillian: let's get you caught up on new zealand shooting the alleged shooter in the christ church terror attack will be charged with

4:26 am
border agents in the laredo sector. and they gave me a look on, you know, the speculation is this a crisis or is it not? well, you hear from the horse's mouth, take a look. >> there has been a lot of reports about the crisis. is it really a crisis? >> yes. there is absolutely a crisis on the border. without a doubt there is a national security crisis, there is a humanitarian crisis. and there is what we like to call policy crisis. the humanitarian crisis you see every day, it's all over the news. it's a number of family units and children coming across, giving themselves up to border patrol. and the reason why they do that is because the -- they know the laws that we have today will allow them to stay in the united states. from the transcriminal organizations. they are very organized. they are very smart. they always know what law enforcement is doing to try to stop their criminal activity. so they know that loophole in these laws. out of approximately 170 miles of border in laredo, we have 30% of that that actually has a road that we can drive on that's
4:27 am
on the border. and that's not one solid road. it's five miles here. then you get a 10-mile break and another five miles. it is very difficult for us to know how -- what is coming across our border if we can't drive on our border. the situational awareness, as far as technology. our cameras that we currently have cover 30% of our area. so we have situational over 30% of our area. 70% of 170 miles that we are not sure what's coming in and what's coming across. >> as you can see the river is right there. that's mexico on the far south side and we are standing on a road in the united states. it will take you about, you know, four, five, six seconds to do this 40-yard dash to get into a vehicle. >> and then off. >> and either off into the neighborhood or around the other way. or they can just go right into these houses that are right up here and stash houses which are deplorable conditions that they are stuffed into without any food, without any water for days at a time. this is where the kidnapping happens. this is where being held for

ran some happens. this is where the rapes happen. and they are put in these deplorable conditions. as you can see, what we are facing a 40-yard stretch. there is nothing to slow them down in any way. there is vegetation everywhere. we don't have the situational awareness. we don't have the impedence and denial. and then the response and resolve, well, we have that but we have about 10, 15 seconds of it. we need more. >> this is why you say you need all parts of the border wall system for this to actually work. the camera right here. >> yes, sir. >> we were talking about this earlier when we were in the eyes room. showing us everything right there. so, you got the camera there to detect sometimes what's going on. how long does it take you to get here? >> that's just it. if we don't have enough personnel working this area and one guy assigned to maybe a two mile radius. if we are on the other side of that area, it could take us five minutes to get here. if it takes us five minutes to get here, i guarantee you they will be be either in a house or vehicle on their
4:29 am
way somewhere into the united states. ainsley: lawrence are they able to patrol -- excellent job by the way. are they able to patrol the entire sector 100 percent of it or do they need more manpower? >> they can't. because they are responsible for the entire laredo sector. but they can only confidently patrol 30% of that that means 70% of the border is open. part of the reason is because there is only so much of the road. they will notice some things on camera. they will get hits on things, they just can't get to them. this goes back to the resources and when you -- these agents are by themselves. you know, most beat coming you will see them having a partner. a lot of these agents don't have a partner out there. they are by themselves. they strap a gun to their hip every single day and they want to go home to their families as well. brian: yeah. >> being put in difficult situations. brian: lawrence, you answer this question. i don't want to lead the witness. but are you going to tell me it seems that a barrier wouldn't help them do their

4:46 am
because obamacare is problematic and constitutionally unsound. and i think they are going to have a good case in the fifth circuit of the supreme court. republicans shouldn't be afraid of that the president is right to stand with the states. he is right for the united states not to defend obamacare's constitutionality because it's not constitutional. and i think republicans shouldn't be afraid of it we have the solutions that the american people want. we want prices of healthcare to go down. we want healthcare for all americans. we want healthcare for all. and instead of these false promises by democrats like medicare for all which would cost $30 trillion. bernie sanders is out on the campaign trail every day criticizing the current broken healthcare system and he is right that it's broken. it's broken because of government intervention. it's broken because costs are going up and people can't get access to insurance or healthcare. and his solution is the 32 trillion-dollar medicare for all solution. the president is giving republicans a second chance to do what they promised to do and repeal obamacare. the president is leading, we need congress to now get in the game and stand up for healthcare for all americans instead of this broken

system we have today. brian: listen, i sat here at this very place and talked to different lawmakers and experts. we know you couldn't keep your doctor if you wanted to keep your doctor and you couldn't keep your plan. we know deductible is too high. looks like most studies show over 50% of american people want obamacare to stay because they may be in some cases they don't know what will replace it taking something away from somebody is a lot different from when you passed it. so how do you plan to overcome that? >> >> i will tell you people in texas are still very frustrated with you obamacare in terms of what it is doing in terms of cost, lack of ability to get the doctor of their choice. the regulations that are making it difficult for their families. so our solution is simple. we want to make sure we have direct primary care so you can go to doctors. we want to make sure you have health savings accounts. we want to have affordable insurance you don't lose when you go job to job. we want to have health sharing organizations that defray the cost. and by doing all of that we can guarantee people will have healthcare and we can protect people with
4:48 am
pre-existing conditions through things like high risk pools. and if we do that we will get the cost of healthcare down. brian: right. >> everybody in america can have healthcare. the false notion of pre-existing conditions is that we are mandating people get insurance coverage through obamacare that's broken and unaffordable. that's the problem. so republicans just need to stand up and talk about the things the american people want, which is affordable, high quality healthcare. brian: i know. you know nothing is going to get done before 2020 the president has admitted that. for you personally this hittings home because you dealt with cancer. what did you see in that system as you battled for your life that made you so adamant to change things? >> well, i'm glad you asked that i am a cancer survivor. i had hodgkin's lymphoma. i had a 4 month old daughter and barely 2-year-old son. i was blessed to go to md anderson and get great care from a doctor down there. what i saw was important for people to get access to healthcare. go to the doctor of their choice. and importantly gave me a commitment to want to get back into public service to make sure all americans can
4:49 am
have healthcare. we have got to get out of this broken notion that insurance is the answer and government is the answer when you want to be able to go to the doctor and be able to pay for the services you want to get and then allow the system to be able to step into the breech when people lose their coverage. very small percentage of the system who don't have coverage under medicaid, medicare or employer provided healthcare or in the private market. we want to make sure we increase options not decrease them. we want to lower prices not increase prices. that's the goal of what we want to do in healthcare. brian: name two democrats that will work with you? >> well, i don't know about which democrats will work with us. i mean, there are some great folks. henry cuellar in texas and other people. at the end of the day, what we can do is come together and present a vision that the american people will get behind. that's the goal, the president of the united states is doing that and republicans on the hill need to follow the president. brian: congressman, i stapsd, the people you are dealing with want to find out what the president's bid to buy the buffalo bills consisted of. they are not looking to

i guess for, for nadler. he came out and got a opinion even though he is not going to use it, listen. >> we are giving the republicans the opportunity to debate and to vote on subpoenas which is a different from, they didn't give us. we will work with the attorney general and, for a short period of time. if that doesn't work out, then a very short order we will issue the subpoenas. we're not willing to let the attorney general, who after all is political appointee of the president, make that, substitute his judgment for ours. steve: clearly the democrats do not trust mr. barr's four-page summary. they're saying right now even though as brian pointed out earlier this will wind up adjudicated, it will take a very long time. it is all to try to change the narrative because mr. barr came out and said no collusion, no obstruction but the democrats are saying really? let's see it.
5:07 am
ainsley: devin nunez, top republican on the intel committee, he calls out the hypocrisy. listen. >> the hypocrisy here knows no bounds with all that said, people should be leery only receiving what i call the mueller dossier. partisans wrote this document. what i'm not just interested in receiving the mueller does say, i want all the information fed into this, i'm sure like everything we dealt with over the last two years, there will probably be a lot of fake innuendo in the mueller dossier. brian: wow. that is what is going on as the president tries to get through his first term, the other example he would say of presidential harrassment, especially after going after his financial records. ways and means says they want six years of his tax returns. please tell us how that makes america more safer, better, more prosperous? steve: "new york times," barr understated mueller findings.
5:08 am
investigators call report more troubling for the president than it was portrayed. toward the end of this story on the front page says, officials and others interviewed declined to flesh out why some special counsel investigators viewed findings potentially more damaging to the president than mr. barr explained. ainsley: jillian has been showing you video of joe biden not apologizing, he didn't say i'm sorry but just saying, explaining, why he, he says he will be more mindful of how he treats women. steve: i get it. ainsley: yes. i was trying -- social norms are changing, politics always been about making connections. so that is what i was trying to do. i will be more mindful about respecting other's personal face. brian: smelling their hair, grabbing their shoulders, hugging them tight. three more came out yesterday saying the way he acted with them was unacceptable. steve: joe biden has not yet

[laughter] >> really?

martha show. brian: one thing noteworthy about the joe biden situation as the investigation grows about what his son may or may not have done with his investments with ukraine and china, is the fact that barack obama and michelle obama have not come out and said hey, i don't know who he will vote for but he is a great guy. this is the time barack obama has to help his guy out. not a word from him. that is as sounding. steve: he said he would not endorse anybody in the primaries. brian: just to say he is a great guy, i never knew hugging was an issue. barack obama has to say it or he thinks joe biden is inappropriate. i don't know. ainsley: 11 minutes top of the hour. jillian has headlines. jillian: let ate guess started with the fox news alert. intense fighting right now following a deadly taliban attack in afghanistan. the terror group attack ad government headquarters, killing 20 afghan troops and police officers. people worry more people could be killed.

she is not alling running out of office. she told "people" magazine never say never but that i'm looking for others for leadership. down to you, steve. steve: thank you. many california sheriffs departments are protesting that state's sanctuary law. 68 out of 169 local law enforcement agencies were not in comb pliance with the law. california's senate bill 54 which restricts them from assisting i.c.e. our next guest is one of those sheriffs. he calls the sanctuary law a dangerous, slippery slope. joining us is sheriff scott jones of sacramento county sheriff's department. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: why is it a dangerous slippery slope? >> anytime you have legislation that is a is one law enforcement agency can't cooperate with another law enforcement agency is dangerous. each law enforcement agency has a station or mission they do don't overlap.
5:26 am
they coincide and work together. like saying we couldn't cooperate with the fbi, dea or secret service. it is dangerous. steve: the law is sb 54, known as the california values act. >> right. steve: essentially what they do, they codify don't cooperate, local municipalities with the feds because immigrants, migrants here in california have certain rights. that's what they were trying to do with that particular law but why are you saying, sheriff, you're not going to follow it? >> well, first of all i got to make it perfectly clear. everybody is following it. this report is nothing more than social activism trying to advance the law. they have air of credibility out of oxford study out of san francisco. the author is the person that developed sanctuary policies for san francisco. we see how well that worked. the project manager is involved in that activity. this is san francisco based advocacy project. every agency is complying with sb 54 but there are still some things we can do.
5:27 am
there is really two aspects to the sb 54. community cooperation, which we really never done with i.c.e. to enforce immigration laws. the piece that is unique to the sheriffs is the jails. we have to be able to cooperate with i.c.e. in our jails because we don't know what they know. we don't know what people they know about and their criminal histories. and the law allows us to do that. most sheriff, including me, cooperate with i.c.e. to the extent that is permitted by sb 54. this study doesn't like that. they want to see that changed. but there is nobody not complying with sb 54 at least in the sheriff's realm in california. steve: one of their findings, they say 41% of sheriff's departments are using legal loophole to publish release dates of illegal immigrants i.c.e. wants. is that accurate? >> well, i would argue that with the term loophole, which has kind of a negative connotation. steve: sure. >> one of the things the specifically the law authorizes any information that is available publicly can be shared
5:28 am
with i.c.e. so although we have always included release dates on our public websites, most sheriffs departments have, i'm sure that has caused some of the sheriffs to be introspective about what they released to the public and maybe expand that. reality we don't have the luxury of being able to advocate for a world we don't have to be responsible for. we have to keep our constituency case. in my case that is million 1/2 people. we have to do everything we can to not to create more victims and keep our folks safe. that may mean we may have to change our practices in compliance with the laws that are set. we're working with the law as it is written. steve: you're working with the law as it is written, but as you said at the same time you don't like the whole sanctuary state business? >> i don't. when you have across the board some blanket policy there are people slipping through the cracks. i like aspects of it, don't disapprove of aspects, community enforcement which they used to
5:29 am
enforce it, but as sheriffs and folks that run corrections elsewhere we have to allow i.c.e. to cooperate. that is where the bad guys are. why let them out having to go into the community to cause danger to the officers, families of folk they want? we already know where the bad guys are, sometimes very good guys. we should be able to cooperate with the extent we can with i.c.e. to carry out their mission inside of our dale. that is the objectionable part of sheriffs in california. steve: joining us from sacramento, california, a sanctuary state. sir, thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: 8:29 here in new york city. president trump will travel to california tomorrow to get a first-hand look at the border crisis. white house press secretary sarah sanders is here with a preview coming up next. yday dies very acidic. it can cause damage to the enamel. with the new pronamel repair toothpaste we can help actively repair enamel

ainsley: he told us on the couch that he is not for cutting off funding to the central american countries let's bring in white house press secretary sarah sanders. the president will head to calexico tomorrow. why did he decide to take the trip, sarah? >> one the president wants to show the progress we made on the border wall. there is section there that is finished. he wants to be able to see that he wants to show a lot of people first-hand exactly what is taking place at the border. he will get a briefing when he first arrives there from a number of law enforcement officials, the cpb folks, people on the front lines, there on the ground, get real time update from those individuals. he wants america to be able to see that, his presence and folks in the media that will be traveling with him will get a chance to see some of the things that are going on the ground, hear from the people dealing with this crisis, day in, day out. steve: couple days ago when the
5:35 am
president threatened to close down the border some people thought, he is just negotiating with mexico. he is saying unless mexico does something i would shut it down. that would be economically, we heard disasterous but has he walked away from that or are things going better with mexico where you're seeing some progress there? >> it is something the president is certainly still keeping that option on the table. as he said, a number of us talked about over the last several days this is certainly not the president's first choice but democrats at this point, their unwillingness to do anything has left the president with very little options. thankfully mexico has stepped up over the last few days. they are working with us to do more to stop more people coming into the country illegally. steve: what are they doing? >> for one, they helped, added large number of additional checkpoints before they get to the border in mexico. they're stepping up the number of individuals that are waiting for their asylum claims in the
5:36 am
united states to be processed. they're holding those individuals in mexico instead of the united states while that takes place up to 300 a day. so there is a lot they are actually doing helping this process but at the same time, it is not going to be enough. congress is eventually going to have to get serious about protecting our country, protecting the americans. yesterday a few works spent a lot of time talking about a minor breach at mar-a-lago, but not talking about thousands of people pouring into the country really putting national security at risk and it is irresponsible the way that is ignored by democrats in congress. this president is not going to allow that to continue. if he has to close the border he will, but that is certainly not his top choice. there are some basic things that congress could do, starting with allowing unaccompanied minors to be returned reunited with their family. the fact that a unaccompanied
5:37 am
child can come to this country, we do not have the ability to legally return them back home to be reunited with their family in their home country is absurd that is simple fix that would drastically not only reduce influx we're seeing coming across the border but it would stop the exploitation of these children through human trafficking, through the cartels, through the coyotes using these kids to come across the border. it is absolutely absurd and frankly it's dangerous and it's mean and cruel what democrats are doing by not fixing that basic law zoo that we can actually help these kids to protect them to reunite them with their families. brian: i would love to see a democrat say 100,000 a month is too many, 76,000 in february is too many. like to see some response to video they have been able to show. proves the president is 100% correct saying this is crisis at the border. just hard to imagine a counterargument. meanwhile on the mueller report
5:38 am
"the new york times" making headlines late last night, out this morning some on mueller's team unnamed, report was more damaging than attorney general barr revealed. what was your reaction? what is the president's reaction to that? >> i think it is same one we've had all along. democrats continue to show day in day out they're nothing but sore losers. at some point they have to realize that they have been beat by president trump in the 2016 election. they're getting beat by him day in, day out. on issues that actually matter and, i think they're a sad excuse for a political party right right you now. at some point they have to decide they want to govern, change thanks, make america better, join the president in those efforts. ainsley: mitch mcconnell set up a vote in the senate, it did pass make the confirmation hearings shorter. right now every single person goes through the confirmation hearings faces 30 hours of interrogation and discussion.

5:40 am
every single person he put forward. steve: sarah, the president asked the senate to adopt "the nuclear option," simple majority on variety of things for the last two years. finally mitch mcconnell saying you know what, simple majority on these confirmation hearings, that is okay with me. >> look he decided enough is enough. and it is time to allow these people -- at the very minimum they deserve a vote up or down. the idea they have their lives put on hold for a year, sometimes more, while they wait to go through the process, it is completely unfair. that is not how government should function. democrats are really an embarassment. brian: i would think any president has to get his people in place, background checks, take place, two hours i think is fine. sarah, real quick president, asking ways and means, has within their power to get a president's tax returns. they want six years. do you think the president will allow his tax returns to be taken, audit or not?
5:41 am
>> as the president said yesterday, while his taxes continue to be under audit he doesn't anticipate that changing at any point anytime soon. and therefore, doesn't have any intention to release those returns. let's not forget, brian, the president filled out hundreds of pages in a financial disclosure. you can see a broad range of president's business investments, all of the different financial interests through that extensive, very exhaustive financial disclosure form you have to fill out in order to work in the government, in order to run for president. he has done that. it gives you a very good picture just how successful he was as a businessman. i think it should answer all of the questions that anybody might have about his financial dealings. steve: exit question, will the president go to the white house correspondents' dinner just around the corner? >> he hasn't made a final decision. steve: sew might? >> i will let him do that.
