the largest escape ever for federal police having to detain migrant caravans. the shelter's capacity is less than 1000 but there are 3000 being held, this as dhs sends a new request to the pentagon to send 300, 400 troops to the border. there are currently 5000 on the border, 3000 are active-duty, 2000 on national guard and a decision on numbers of not been made. they can operate on a support role and do not engage in law enforcement. one place they may be needed is the el paso sector where border patrol chief says it is worth running them. >> numbers keep going up at a faster rate and we have seen unprecedented numbers which is something new for us. this places manpower and resources from securing the border leaving few of us on the line. >> reporter: that secretary thing a 700% increase, donald trump says wall construction is
underway. >> we are building many sections of wall, under construction right now and i intend to have by the end of next year over 400 miles of wall with renovated a lot of wall already. >> reporter: the president tweeting yesterday he is proud of the hard work border patrol has been doing and is giving them arrays. rob: some in congress, the massive caravan heading for the border, arizona republican andy biggs says congress has to act now. >> high walls and when we hear 300,000 people are coming from mexico that is only the people we know. estimates are anywhere from 3 to four times that many getting in that we do not know, we do not have, can't ascertain the number and the cartel's control of who is coming through the border,
they are sending groups through and we have drugs and bad guys coming through in other places so i am glad mexico is providing that count. it is providing the closest count we are going to get from mexico. it is more than that who are making it through the borders. >> the department of homeland security said border patrol apprehensions will approach 1 million this fiscal year. >> massachusetts judge pleads not guilty for helping an illegal immigrant escape the feds. a joseph accused of oregon ice agents out of the courtroom to help perez escape out the back door last april. >> this is not about immigration. it is about the law. even the rich and famous. today i would add it must apply to the privilege and powerful. todd: lawyers call is a political witchhunt. he was caught by ice a month
after his escape. hundreds of college students amid the measles scare, ucla and cal state university issuing the orders after two students with highly infectious disease visited those campuses, some of the people were allowed to go home after approving they are vaccinated as the cdc claims cases that surpass record totals for the 21st-century. jillian: violent and powerful storms with across the south was a tornado in louisiana killing a mother and son. the governor issuing a statement urging businesses and homes completely devastated in southwest texas and good samaritans rushing to help a truck that flipped over in floodwaters. more thunderstorms and possible tornadoes are expected today. janice dean will be tracking them. a fallen hero will be laid to rest, hundreds giving firefighter and marine staff sergeant christopher sleptman a

jillian: later in a philadelphia fundraiser he spoke about restoring what he calls economic dignity and the middle class. listen to the president's response. >> the greatest economy anywhere in the world which it is. nobody is even close to us and that is because of the things we have done. when biden makes a statement talking about the soul people forget there was tremendous division during the obama administration, tremendous division. >> reporter: he is picking up endorsements from several current and former elected officials, you see the names on screen. a lot of people talk about this on social media, the former vp saying he doesn't want the endorsement because he wants to earn on his own merit. jillian: that statement got a lot of eyebrows going.
todd: until the 2020 election, who knew? jillian: joe biden talking less about the issues and more about the 2017 charlottesville rally. is that a good strategy? our political panel debates it next. todd: one call just changed everything, the guy in the pink suit, number one. the nfl draft coming up when "fox and friends" returns.

everything that has made america is at stake. i'm announcing my candidacy for president of the united states. jillian: using the charlottesville tragedy is part of the presidential announcement video. was this the right message to connect with voters? that's the question a lot of people are talking about. here to debate that, minority leader and political analyst gianna caldwell. thank you for joining us. we start with you. what was your reaction when you saw that video? >> i thought immediately joe biden was running to be the divider in chief instead of uniter in chief. as we know charlottesville was a hurtful experience for many americans including myself. i don't think donald trump said the right things when it comes to charlottesville. however when it comes to joe biden, ignoring the pain of the
situation and the mood in which charlottesville opened, to use that experience as an emotional tool especially directed to where the group impacted by it, african-americans, was fairly disgusting. and for an individual who can be impactful in this race and potentially when i was disappointed with that. jillian: a lot of people share that sentiment. it seems there are two trains of thought. some say this shows he's willing to go head the head with donald trump, willing to battle. a lot of people say, this is from a clergyman who protested the whites the premises in charlottesville and a lot of people have the sentiment. how much charlottesville and our dramatic footage seems to be motivating and framing joe biden's candidacy one might think we would have received a call or visit in the past 20 months first. a lot of people feel they are being used as ponds. >> nobody wants to be used as a pond in that regard.
joe biden obviously is trying to frame his campaign. he mentions in this video about the soul the nation. it seems a choice between hope and fear and good and evil and the thing i find fascinating about this where joe biden may have made a mister. i have always been a joe biden fan but one of the most compelling arguments for joe biden has been he could connect with donald trump voters, he's a straight shooter but what he has done in this because he is making a choice between good and evil he also by extension is basically saying trump supporters, you are on the side of evil. how is he supposed to get those people back on his side if he is lumping them with the narrative that he's trying to paint in
this? jillian: joe biden had a lot of support. right now people are we are not sure about this rollout. >> it is the unique approach. i have known joe biden's campaign manager, an ohio native, for 15 years and the best of luck even though i'm a ryan supporter in this race but i would love to know from greg's perspective what the thought was behind this because i do think he's trying to say i will stand up to donald trump and this is about the soul of the nation but was charlottesville the right tool to convey that? i'm not sure. >> a microcosm of what the democratic party has been advocating in terms of getting african-americans involved, reparations, knowing if they were to win the united states presidency there would be no reparations.
many tools in which they elicit to spark this desire in african-americans to rally behind the democratic party i find to be disingenuous and certainly not something that will be meaningful impact for for african-americans. we care about having money in our pockets and making sure our families go to the best schools possible, elementary, high school or college. when you think about those issues the democratic party is misfiring using these symbolic areas that dig into race and the rules of racism on our country. they will have a hard time with that cell this coming election. jillian: let's talk about the, quote, 15 minutes of fame. nothing it's a few minutes of fame but there was a lot of hype around beto o'rourke and now a lot of hype around pete
buttigieg. who has the staying power, someone we are not talking about a someone like pete or beto? >> maybe more candidates will enter the race at this point. it is anybody's game. the words of my former boss who says people -- polls don't vote, people do. that being the case we know polls fluctuate and change and it is all about who has staying power and what resonates with people overall. jillian: who has staying power? >> biden and bernie have name recognition. they have staying power in that regard but my congressman, tim ryan of ohio, if he has an opportunity to get in the spotlight through townhall or whatever it is possible, he has an opportunity to connect with trump voters that crossed over focusing on kitchen table issues. i call him a gen x joe biden.
on foxnews.com, if he gets a chance to get exposure he could have some traction. heather: thank you for your time, have a good weekend. todd: we still have more than a year before the election. the of ventures are in the end game. >> we lost, all of us. we lost friends, lost family, we lost part of ourselves. >> already on track to be the largest movie opening in history but is it worth your money. ♪ ♪

people who spent so much time and money on these first 21 films and the storyline of infinity, that film ended with josh brolin's character snapping his fingers and wiping out the universe. he is -- a gigantic purple villain in the movie but an amazing performer, that is where infinity more leads you. the so now the of ventures remaining trying to take them down. that is where the storyline is. that's all i will say. you are seeing the repercussions because a lot of the avengers disintegrated. what you are seeing here is not end game but we are reviewing end game and this is an absolute master class in juggling dozens of characters, dozens of storylines seamlessly.

have an event film back in the day. 5 out of 5. this is a movie, please, anybody out there don't spoil it for people. i don't understand how people get happy about making - spoiling films. keep it to yourself, let audiences experience it for the first time. it is wonderful film. alan silvestri did the music to back to the future. we are lucky this movie exists. jillian: thank you very much. have a good one. todd: north korea handing the us a medical bill for otto warmbier's care. jillian: shocking details about what happened before he came home next. state of the art technology makes it brilliant. the visionary lexus nx. lease the 2019 nx 300 for $359 a month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. when a nasty cold won't let you sleep,
