kamala harris said if elected she will go after obstruction of justice charges. donald trump responding to that on abc. >> he is running for president, doing horribly, she is way down in the polls and i heard she made that statement. if i were running in her position i would make the same statement. there was no crime, no russia collusion. >> reporter: there is at least one democrat contenders standing out for saying no to putting a political rival behind bars. >> prosecuting past leaders and imprisoning them, something america has never fallen into and the way i would hope we would proceed. >> reporter: you won't see all 20 on stage at once. might be too much to keep up with but split over two different night. heather: it will be a big one, two nights, big debate.
some sad news. she has a great job, white house press secretary sarah sanders is stepping down. she will leave the administration by the end of the month to spend more time with her family, she has three of them. not clear who will replace her yet. her father, arkansas governor mike huckabee says she has enjoyed her time in the white house. >> one thing i can tell you she loves this president, she has been absolutely loyal to him and will continue to be. one thing she's looking forward to doing is to be able to set the record straight about what a remarkable person he is. heather: donald trump praising his longest serving press secretary. >> he has done an incredible job. we have been through a lot together and she is tough and she is good and she is a special person. she has been so great, she has such heart, thank you for an outstanding job and thank you.
heather: the president encouraged sanders to follow in her dad's footsteps and run for governor of arkansas. is that a good idea? the difference between right and wrong. nancy pelosi slamming donald trump for being open to opposition research from foreign governments. >> might want to listen. i don't think there's anything wrong with listening. >> you want that kind of interference in our elections? >> it is not information, it is information, i would take it. heather: nancy pelosi criticizing his moral character over those comments. >> it is so against any sense of decency that he does not know the difference between right and wrong. that is the nicest thing i can say about him. everybody in the country should be appalled by what the president said. this one borders on so totally unethical that he doesn't even realize it. heather: donald trump responding
to the criticism, i meet and talk to foreign governments every day. that i immediately call the fbi about these calls and meetings? how ridiculous. i would never be trusted again. finally did you see this? the toronto raptors make history by taking down a dynasty to win their first ever nba title. >> a new nba champion from toronto, canada. the champions. heather: the raptors surviving a nailbiter, the golden state warriors, 114-110 and then there is this. thousands of fans roaring in what is called jurassic park in toronto celebrating canada's first pro sports championship since 1993. probably still celebrating. in golf, justin rhodes leads the u.s. open after tying the record

leadership. big differences, i believe barack obama had a concern and compassion for these immigrants. it is not about what party you are in. it is about the people themselves. heather: julian castro claims the obama administration was more compassionate when it came to illegal immigration but is that really the case? tom homan joins us to set the record straight. we always enjoy having you with us. thank you for joining us. is he right? were things better for illegal immigrants under the obama administration? >> i agree with his first point, a crisis in leadership, leadership of the democratic party, that is where the crisis is because they've not accepted the crisis on the border. they have not given the president one offer of assistance or funded one power to take care of women and
children but it is in his party. as far as donald trump -- president obama being more compassionate, under president obama we went from 100 family detention beds, i, tom homan, bill 3000 more detention beds. they keep talking about the so-called cages which i don't call cages. heather: we have video of that up right now. heather: i have no problem with the facilities, you have to get children separated from unrelated adults. keep children away from unrelated adults. democrats want -- the cages which were both created under president obama. in fiscal year 12 the record number of removals of illegal aliens was 490,000.
heather: president obama actually deported over 3 million illegal immigrants during his entire time in office and was referred to as the deep order in chief. >> president obama took illegal immigration seriously at the beginning of his eight years and we did remove a lot of illegal aliens. he was doing the right thing, removing those illegal aliens, we were doing our job. not until later in his presidency we started talking about sanctuary cities, we couldn't put retainers on people in a county jail until they were convicted. things turned on the opposite side. let's not lie to the american people. heather: perhaps julian needs a history lesson.
immigrant rights groups asked the supreme court to delay the decision on the 2020 census question. what do you think about that? >> they don't want that to happen. they don't want the american people to know how many illegal aliens are in the country. i think there are more than 12 million people. i also think this is about power, votes, the electoral college. this is why they want illegal aliens here, they want them to be counted and not answer census questions, they want credit for all these people being here mostly in sanctuary cities which is what congressional seats are based on which leads to the electoral college. this is about them maintaining power, getting more power on the backs of people that aren't supposed to be here. if they are counted in the census it helps.
heather: a larger number of the electoral college. >> all about -- tony: for joining us. have a great weekend. time is 19 minutes after the top of the hour and sarah sanders out at the white house in the media wasting no time taking aim. >> he suffers from liabilities. >> i will not miss her. >> literally and figuratively will not miss her either. heather: they took aim at her the last three years so carly shimkus with reaction up next. ♪ you must not know about me ♪ you must not know about me ♪ i don't know what's going on.

[ dogs howling ] seriously? embrace the mischief. say "get pets tickets" into your x1 voice remote to see it in theaters.
heather: donald trump praising sarah sanders after announcing her departure from the white house. >> she is a special person, a very very fine woman, she has been so great, she has such heart, she is strong but with great great heart and thank you. heather: not everyone feels the same. carly shimkus is here with all of the reaction barely out the door and they have started with her. carley: she has been with the president and the beginning and he wants her to run for governor of arkansas so we will have to wait and see but the president's camp is praising her. ivanka trump saying in and instagram's first, she has been here since the campaign, we love her dearly and are grateful for the amazing job she has done.
are in c chairwoman calling her a fighter tweeting sarah sanders has been a gladiator for the cause against daily attacks from the mainstream media. thank you for your service to america and the president. sanders time as pressing there has been marked by accusations of lying, the mueller report revealed she was not truthful when she said countless fbi agents supported the president's decision of firing james comey. former acting fbi director andrew mccabe happy to see her go. listen to this. >> i will not miss her. >> the first to ban her tape. i literally and figuratively will not miss her. >> he suffers from liabilities. her tenure has been fraught with sex, lies and videotape. >> i don't want to sound rude or flip but good riddance.
heather: michigan congressman rashida tlaib posted a simple tweet, two words, bye-bye. heather: i can't imagine being in that position, the pressure. >> single hardest job in the administration. heather: three kids at home. carley: i am sure she is really looking forward to it. heather: townhall on fox news, bret baer and martha maccallum and julian castro asked by a woman in the audience about her social security number that was stolen by an illegal. here's what he said. >> i have had my social security number used by an illegal immigrant, he was caught and released on his a recognizance never to be heard again. >> rich or poor, no matter the color of their skin what their background is, people commit crime. crime happens. >> he went on to say anyone who commits a crime should be
punished but the point of his answer was to criticize how asylum-seekers are detained. have you responded to that? some folks on twitter not satisfied with that response. he did answer the question and the answer was no and a twitter user says illegals don't just happen. illegals are drawn by leftist democrat policies and agendas. sounds like the question was about sanctuary cities and surrounded a little bit. >> the crime would not have happened had he not been in the country. heather: fox news alert, tensions at a boiling point. attacking two tankers, where does the conflict go from here. look at that footage.

visit alz.org to join the fight. .. heather: fox news alert, tensions boiling over with iran because of what you are looking at after the us directly blames the regime for attacks on two oil tankers in the gulf of oman. >> these attacks present a clear threat to international peace and security, no economic sanctions, the islamic republic to attack innocent civilians, disrupt global oil markets and engage in nuclear blackmail. heather: iran denying responsibility calling the
attack alarming but this video claims it shows an iranian boat and the crew removing and unexploded mine attached to the side of one of the tankers. you to react, colonel rob manis. what do you think? did iran do this? >> there has always been one aggressor in the middle east in the last two decades and it is the nation of iran. there is no doubt about it, they are the ones that have the technical skills and equipment and military forces and they don't normally give their proxies this capability. heather: their foreign minister saying they were not involved. here is a tweet, the us immediately jumped to make allegations without a threat of factual or circumstantial evidence. it is clear that the beating is
moving to plan b, sabotage diplomacy including shinzo abe covering up economic terrorism against iran and this is all planned out, part of the economic sanctions to ruin iran. >> iranian bluster when it comes -- they are brave and shouting death to america but when it comes to stepping up and admitting when they have done something like this which is very egregious and obviously intended to sway prime minister abe and donald trump and meetings with iranian's it is absolutely ridiculous. heather: why would they do this at the time that shinzo abe is meeting with the ayatollah? >> these people don't know anything, the moment you act in a moment of weakness they go
ahead and strike. they want to set the stage to know they have the power, it is their part of the world and they always said they own the strait of hormuz in the persian gulf and the united states navy and our allies ensure freedom of navigation and international waters for several hundred years and will continue to do so. heather: this comes on the heels of an attack that injured 26 civilians connected to that. >> they are acting through proxies for decades killing americans in iraq and syria, saudi arabia and all the countries around the area where we had forces and allies, the yemeni war, the main arbiters of providing the resources that keep us going. >> what is the best course of action? >> the president and his team
are executing navigation operations more aggressively. a good move for them to deploy the turn option forces like the b-52 bombers and put the abraham lincoln carrier task force and we could respond appropriately. obviously the iranian did not attack american forces or american vessels and we will continue to operate freely and ensure that others can operate freely in international waters. if i were the president i would make sure those forces are acting in the strait of hormuz in international waters. >> to actually evacuate those ships, one of which was a japanese ship, thank you, appreciate it.
