to unveil a brand-new immigration plan targeting the overwhelming backlog of asylum-seekers as administration officials call the situation at the border extreme. griff jenkins live in washington with what we can expect today. >> reporter: what we expect is the white house's push on immigration. the president signed into law and jared kushner along with stephen miller yesterday for a lunch meeting briefing them on the broad outlines of a plan in the works for weeks. few details were available but we expect to address border security and asylum backed laws and the past illegal migration which will change the latest currently done. after the meeting lindsey graham told reporters, quote, i don't think it is designed to get democratic support as much as it is to unify the republican party around border security. graham is holding a press conference at 10:00 to unveil his own legislation to address
the crisis at the border and we expect highlights of the plan to include addressing the much cited florez agreement that prevents officials from holding on 20 days, increasing it to 100 days and adding 500 immigration judges to wipe out the asylum backlog. that has 130,000 cases with an average wait time of 729 days. this comes as acting secretary of defense patrick shanahan says the president is deeply concerned that things are getting worse. >> he said i need better results. deliver more. the situation is extreme. fix it. that is why we are here. there has never been lack of commitment to fixing it. it is just with these trends and increases it is getting worse. >> reporter: you can hear more of the exclusive interview with shanahan later on "fox and friends". one note, it is unclear whether
graham's plan is similar or the same as the white house's but that will be clear later today or in the coming days. shannon: we will talk about that more later in the show. thank you so much. some other headlines, 6 people now confirmed dead in the horrific plane collision in alaska. the coast guard finding remains of two missing people overnight. ten people were hurt when a plane crashed near the town of ketchikan. passengers were traveling with the same cruiseship. the ntsb investigating what caused the crash. neither plane had cockpit voice recorders by the way. saying goodbye to the team hero killed in colorado school shooting, kendrick was gunned

good news. us and iranian officials insist neither country is seeking war despite growing tensions. mike pompeo says the us will only respond if it's interests are attacked. this comes one day after new york times report claimed the us could send 120,000 troops to the middle east. donald trump now dismissing those claims. >> we have not planned for that. hopefully we will not have to plan for that. we will send more troops than that but the story in the new york times, the new york times is fake news. heather: b-52 bombers have been deployed as a show of force to iran. donald trump and the ayatollah have made it clear that neither side want military conflict. senate armed services committee member tom cotten says the us
wants something else instead. >> we don't seek military action against iran. we want iran to change its behavior. stop supporting terrorism, stop -- if iran should lash out and provoke us we will defend our interests with a furious response. heather: it is a year since the with withdrew from the nuclear agreement, the white house maintained the maximum pressure campaign taking steps like designating iran's revolutionary guard corps a terrorist organization, reinstating all sanctions to drive their oil exports down to 0. a battle is brewing amid the 2020 presidential election. it is not right against left but the left -- peter doocy has more on the progressive resistance toward front runner joe biden. >> a popular democrat with dc
experience, the best way to change it and i'm not joking is to get donald trump out of that office. >> being challenged by a popular democrat without 5 months of experience. about climate change. >> i will be damned if the same politicians who refused to act then are going to try to come back today and say we need a middle-of-the-road approach to save our lives. >> reporter: progressives are upset a climate change advisor told reuters what we learned from the obama administration is less we find middle ground on these issues we risk not having any policies but biden believes the obama white house did plenty. >> i never have been middle-of-the-road on the environment. >> reporter: biden's eyes bleed in the polls didn't stop steve bullock from joining the field. >> i don't have the luxury of just talking to people who agree with me. >> reporter: he did that last year. a white house event on gun control. >> my approach as a gun owner.
>> reporter: his focus is on unseating trump. >> we need to defeat donald trump in 2020 of the corrupt system that lets campaign money drowned out the peoples voice. >> reporter: beto o'rourke is not far ahead. he has slipped from historic fundraising hall on launch day to 4.2% in the real clear politics average of polls. >> the trump campaign doesn't believe they have 20 different opponents. they brand them all as one. he likens the field to one big socialist organism with 22 heads. in washington, peter doocy, fox news. >> the strictest abortion bill is closer to becoming law. governor kay ivey will sign the bill after senators overwhelmingly passed it overnight. the law would prevent women from getting an abortion unless the mother's health is at risk.

tried to get 1 million illegal immigrants from central america, a 900,000 backlog, it is not a manufactured crisis, how to fix this problem. heather: lindsey graham releasing his immigration bill calls for sweeping changes to the current system and its loophole. joining me to weigh in is ronald colburn. we appreciate it. we have been hearing about these backlog numbers, 1 million immigrants coming in. the main points of the immigration bill. preventing people from seeking asylum at the us border and instead apply for asylum outside the us. the us would hold migrant children for 100 days, and 500 new immigration judges which we were told repeatedly we need.
your overall thoughts on this plan? >> absolutely agree with those points. i've not read the entire language yet but just a month ago on fox i hope to somewhere there was a sequestered of good language and could be legislatively past to help this situation and i'm glad to see senator graham taking this on. shannon: can it be legislatively past? that's the problem we run into over and over. >> he will face a challenge. it is a threat and the risk at the border right now. it is untenable and it should be a bipartisan interest and the parties are fighting it out. i hope they can find a solution. heather: i don't see how it is not bipartisan interest when we look at these numbers. these were just for april. the southwest border total
apprehensions, look at 2019, 109,000 compared to numbers in the past, 2018, just over 51,000 and then it goes down from there. the numbers are overwhelming. back to what we were talking about in terms of asylum and those seeking asylum. you have some information on that as well, legitimate asylum-seekers. >> statistics show 7% of those crossing illegally into the united states and attempting to claim credible fear asylum were or refugee status actually qualify. the rest are taking advantage of the chaos being released into the us but that is different from 10 years ago when 90% plus return to their countries after attempting to enter illegally. now they are all being released
into the us including some that may be carrying communicable diseases because incubation periods are longer than the mandated holding periods. heather: this marriage scam that was released yesterday would cost $70,000 per marriage. that is the scam part of it. 276 indictments, they faced 10 to 30 years in jail. >> i'm pleased to see law enforcement taking down a large and complex organization. these are criminal organizations. this is been going on for 6 decades by criminals but now the international committal organization is running and controlling. 50, $70,000 is a lot of money. that is what the smugglers are getting for what they call asylum from the middle east and
southeast asia and eastern europe, $50,000 apiece easily. bill: marriage scam and the scam where they are using children to use children to try to get across the border. thank you for joining us. we will see what happens with lindsey graham's plan. moments ago the state department ordering non-emergency government employees to get out of iraq right away. according to the us embassy. the secretary of state visited baghdad last week to give assurances the us would support the nation despite tensions with neighboring iran. all emergency us government employees told to leave iraq. us citizens being told not to travel there as well. more on that breaking development. 19 after the top of the or, one week before the team defends the

indication but they may not have viewed it as significant. heather: it is not reviewed which were hacked but those election officials have been codified. this is not the first time we are hearing of a russian breach in florida in 2016. democratic senator bill nelson warned russia had penetrated voter registration system is but governor rick scott denied the claim. >> i never want to say there is no more threat because it is something. >> reporter: this announcement amid mike pompeo's first trip to russia as secretary of state and he warned the russian foreign minister against any meddling in the 2020 elections. heather: donald trump junior will testify before the republican-controlled senate intelligence committee. the president's and agreeing to sit down for a limited session behind closed doors. lawmakers threatened to hold him in contempt after he refused to

attorney john durham weeks ago to look into the origins of the russia probe. that makes at least three open investigations outside congress into the 2016 election cycle. here's attorney and legal affairs reporter for the washington times, thank you for joining us. let's begin with the latest one that has just begun. he has been looking into it for weeks now. the us attorney in connecticut, john durham, investigating the origins of the russia probe. what can you tell us? >> he is somebody who was unanimously confirmed and investigations under bill clinton, bush and obama and mixed results, some resulted in charges, and resulted in charges of two former fbi agents. someone who isn't hesitant to
bring charges if necessary and that will give conservatives and trump supporters a little relief who wondered what is going on with this. how did this get started? some members of congress coming out of different committees, saying there are questions about how the fisa application was signed off on using the dossier, any aspects related to that and whether there were crimes committed. >> notice republicans the democrats to be happy too. and democrat and republican presidents on the line. >> he has bipartisan support. heather: the next one, john huber in 2017, he is separately investigating the russia probe. >> part of his investigation. we learned he was appointed by
jeff sessions in 2017 to look at how the fbi and investigators handled the probe into hillary clinton and the clinton foundation and whether there was any wrongdoing "go -- quid pro quo type situation with uranium one and whatnot the we learned about during the 2016 campaign. a lot of people wondering where is he and what is going on with the investigation? haven't heard anything. there is speculation the new us attorney looking at how the investigation into the trump campaign got started because we have a new attorney general. heather: going a little further, hillary clinton foundation, the last one, michael horowitz, the
doj inspector general investigating wiretaps, also underway in terms of the latest investigation. >> he is the one who brought us the information about the page and stzrok texts. a lot of lawmakers have a lot of faith in this. he doesn't have the power of a prosecutor. what we have now with durham is a grand jury. and something horrible it is not able to do. heather: he is aware of what horwitz discovered and that is why we take the next step. we know horowitz and anything he found is supposedly expected to be reported back in may or june. >> we can cross our fingers on that. thank you for joining us. 20 minutes until the top of the
hour. as trade talks continue china's new tariffs are hitting the us farm bill. >> having a little squabble with china, we've been treated unfairly for many decades. the piggy bank everybody likes to take advantage of and we can't let that happen anymore. heather: farmers will eventually reap benefits of the trade deal. our next guest says american agriculture needs to see progress now. ♪ signed sealed delivered ♪ i'm yours ♪ easy. it's having-a-walrus-in-goal easy! roooaaaar! it's a walrus! ridiculous! yes! nice save, big guy! good job duncan! way to go!

purdue pharma denies the allegations. donald trump says the trade war with china is just a little squabble but farmers are caught in the middle. how does this impact them? here to explain, illinois farm bureau vice president brian duncan. thank you for joining us so early this morning. >> thank you for having me on. heather: i don't know why i have a cough today. [coughing] heather: if you could just begin while i deal with this issue. and let us know for people at home how does this directly impact you as a farmer? excuse me. >> my wife and i operate a livestock farm in northwest illinois, corn and soybeans and
what we see happen with the trade war, we are seeing tariffs and retaliatory tariffs not just in china but mexico as well made corn and soybeans as well and other countries and other countries in china, mexico and canada looked elsewhere for agricultural products and that directly impacted prices on our farm. heather: very troubling. apologize, my coughing fit is now over. let's look at what donald trump has to say on how he benefits farmers. patriot farmers will be one of the biggest beneficiaries of what is "happening now," china will do is the honor of continuing to buy our great farm product is the best but the country will be making different things on a very high china by. this money will come from the
massive tariffs been paid to the united states for allowing china and others to do business in the us. the farmers, for many years their time is now. what about that? >> there is a lot in that, isn't there? when he talks about doing a massive commodity by the us government i need to know what that looks like. there seems to be some difficulty in the process that would undergo. that being said farmers are to the point they would welcome the discussion of any sort of package or help. we had hoped last week, last friday the chinese trade talks were successful and there would be a by that would cause a lift in commodity prices to help us on the skid we have been on since the trade war began but last week didn't end as we hoped
and farmers are looking for a win. as far as the other parts of that statement there is a lot to unpack. don't know if we have time to do that. heather: when you talk about hoping there is a positive resolution for farmers especially -- this is a family farm. you have two of your children actively involved in the operation of the farm. >> absolutely. what we worry about long-term is if supply chains are rerouted, if china makes investments in other countries this could have generational consequences for family farmers and countries source their products from other nations. china could make large investments in south america or
mexico and simply bypass the united states and that would be generally usually -- generationally - heather: counterintuitive to what the president says he wants which is american workers, american farmers out there successfully doing what they need to do. we appreciate you joining us. >> thank you for having me on. heather: have a great day. they say focus on the journey, not the destination. >> all right. >> did you watch anything last night? heather: where you are going can make all the difference. the worst airport in the country just revealed. ♪ the latest innovation from xfinity
