field. houston astro fans astro players. you never want to throw that back. you got to keep that thing. todd: you want to keep your channel locked to fox news channel because "fox & friends" starts right now. bye-bye. ♪ ♪ working for a living ♪ working for a living ♪ working for a living ♪ living and working ♪ taking what they're giving ♪ because we're working for a living. steve: the man who is singing that song is actually in front of stage right now. phil vassar a moment ago. he is going to be our summer performer during our all-american summer concert series brought to us by our friends at sandals. ainsley: sandals. pete: famous dave's

3:02 am
pete: this comes just hours after president trump confirmed the attack himself. steve: aishah has any here to break it down. >> are in a bizarre twist the country is now denying that a strikedown even happened in a tweet the country's deputy foreign minister says we have not lost any drone in the strait of hormuz nor anywhere else. i'm worried that u.s. has has shot down their own uas by mistake. well, the president has a different story. local time thursday an iranian drone was spotted within 1,000 yards of a uss boxer warship in the strait of hormuz. the drone apparently egg poured in order repeated calls to stand down. that's when marines took it down on their own. they used this that you are looking at right there on your screen. specialized electronic jamming equipment. and now the president is calling on the rest of the world to help protect the
3:03 am
gulf. >> this is the latest of provocative by iran against vessels operating in international waters. jillian: of course this is refueling sentences after iran shot down a u.s. drone on june 20th that it claims crossed into territory lines. and the country also on sunday captured a foreign tanker from the uae claiming the crew of 12 was smuggling oil. demanding release saying iran must cease this illicit activity and release the crew and vessel immediately. the state strait of hormuz is incredibly important only sea passage way for a good chunk of the world's oil. steve: all right, aishah, thank you very much. pete, you are a military man. explain to me why iran would say wait a minute, all of our drones returned to home base. they didn't shoot anything out of the sky? pete: because they are not held to accountability. of course if one ever our drones was shot down some colonel somewhere is held
3:04 am
accountable to somebody else. pete: they have to save face. they would never admit this type of a situation they will use their propaganda to say what they want to say. we know the truth, they know the truth. this was coming. they are feeling the pressure right now. we can take steps to continue to say we're the big dogs in the neighborhood. ainsley: we sent out several warnings according to reports and used electronic jamming some say to bring it down. steve: we showed that device. pete: give them every chance. they continue to be provocative you shoot it down. steve: iran is in trouble now, the ambassador to the united nations was in new york yesterday. he said the united states is trying to starve our people and deplete our treasury. part of the sanctions. general jack keane said that's all part of the president's maximum pressure strategy, which is working. >> the leadership in iran is back on their heels literally for the first time that i have ever seen.
3:05 am
and what we need to do is not overreact, be patient, because strategy we have in place is working. and we don't need to go up the ladder of escalation with the iranians in a way that they would love it take us there. we have to be careful about what we are doing. our strategy, our offensive strategy is working. and don't fall in to a provocation trap that they are setting for us. pete: yeah. the president hasn't fallen for that. steve: of course, iran has all their drones. we didn't shoot down. ainsley: that's what they're saying. we shot down our own. pete: they are always straight up. ainsley: yesterday on the hill there was a big grilling that dhs secretary kevin mcaleenan was there face the house oversight committee. all the democrats on that committee really just beat them down about what is happening down at our border. listen to a montage that we put together of the chairman, elijah cummings, along with some of the other democratic leaders, some of those progressives. >> i guess you feel like you
3:06 am
are doing a great job, right? is that what you are saying? >> we are doing our level best in a very challenging. >> what does that mean? what does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces. >> conditions in our custody. you want to codify those positions. >> you want to keep them longer. it's been very clear from this administration you want to keep kids longer. >> we want to keep families together through an immigration proceeding. >> by keeping kids longer. >> do you think that the policy of child separation could have contributed to a dehumanizing culture within wcbp that contributes and spills over into other areas of conduct. >> we deno have the a dehumanizing culture at cbp. this is an agency that will rescues 400,000 a year end errant actor with we do not believe there is a dehumanizing culture. steve: one of the things did he say, and this was a statistic i read this morning "the washington post" that caught my eye. he said that fewer than
3:07 am
1,000 children have been separated from 450,000 family units that have come into the country since october. so, 450,000 family groups since october, fewer than 1,000 separated. but it does not include the children who came with relatives, who are separated under longstanding policy to safeguard against human trafficking. pete: yeah. speaking of dehumanization. who has been dehumanized? it's been the ice agents and border patrol agents whose motives are being impugned every single day. 4,000 people rescueside a fact. we know that's what they done 00 border to save kids, to save women. to say save men who make this dangerous journey. it's all disingenuous. very rich for congress to be preaching to these guys after congress' total inability to get anything done. ainsley: you can't complain about an election and didn't go to the polls and vote. in this situation they are complaining about something, these ice directors or these homeland security directors
3:08 am
have gone to congress time and time again and asked them for money. pete: exactly. ainsley: finely a week ago or month ago they did give them $4 billion. he did say yesterday that is working. we appreciate that money. that is helping us expedite. this buff he said time and time again i have asked y'all for money and y'all didn't give it. why are y'all complaining? steve: look, you have a problem with these laws that interest on the books. change the laws, you're congress. tom homan, former ice directors was on the channel last night, talking about how congress handled the crisis just about five years ago versus now. >> i put it right on the feet of congress. the secretary and border patrol has been telling them for months we are beyond capacity, we need help. give hhs money to we can get people into appropriate facility. congress sat on it. i didn't hear any of these people yelling back in fy 14, fy 15 we had the same exact situation on the
3:09 am
border and they quickly gave money and that's when we built 3,000 family detention beds. that's when we built the so-called cages. i mean, it is night and day how they're reacting today compared to how they reacted back in '14 and '15. pete: when there was a crisis much smaller under the obama administration, congress did the appropriate thing and funded it to deal with it. but when it happens during president trump's ear remarks the resistance races uraises up and says you can't do that. steve: it has nothing to do with trump, nothing. pete: that's what they say every singer gel day. will. ainsley: robert perez is going to be on our show at 8:15 and we will ask him these questions and get his reaction. pete: this guy has been there on both sides of the coin. double standard every single day. steve: it's stark. we heard from the president yesterday about the rally the night before normal north carolina where at one point the crowd for over 10 seconds was chanting "send
3:10 am
her back, send her back." referring to congresswoman omar. yesterday the president made it very clear that he said that he was not happy with that and tried to stop it. listen. >> i started speaking very quickly. it really was a loud -- i disagree with it by the way -- but it was quite a chant. and i felt a little bit badly about it. but i will say this. i did and i started speaking very quickly. but it started up rather fast, as you probably noticed. >> so you will tell your supporters never to -- >> -- i would say that i was not happy with it. i disagree with it. but, again, i didn't say that they did. but i disagree with it. >> but they were echoing what you just said in your first tweet they should go back. >> i think if you examine that you will not find it but i disagree with it. pete: in every argument and i have been on vacation this past week. steve: didn't miss anything.
3:11 am
pete: every time i turn on the tv or read a newsletter about it trump made racist remarks yet he has never yet once invoked race he pointed out if you don't love the values of our country maybe you should go somewhere else. they make it about race. trump doesn't make it about race. ainsley: the rale was more than an hour. an hour and 30 minutes. he had a lot to say. if you watch a lot of networks. if you watch the media and listen to the democrats they picked out that one phrase that the crowd was chanting, criticizing. steve: the u.s. senator from the great state of florida marco rubio went on twitter posted this video on how certain members of the media and democrats are playing a very dangerous game with this outrage. >> the hypocrisy, the self-righteousness, outrages people, too. and on top of it, you have these four members who are americans no, one should question that they are fully as american as me or anybody else, but they are also political bullies. they go around attacking
3:12 am
people, calling other democrats just like southern segregationists but when you hit them back it's because they are women of color. it's absurd. people are tired of this game. tough immediately respond. pick a side between these two. it's a game i'm not going to play. it's distracting us from the important things that this country needs to be focused on and i'm not playing this game anymore. pete: the minute you realize they are going to call you a racist whatever you do. it's liberating. call me whatever you want to call me. i love this country, i love the flag. i'm willing to defend it and they walk back into identity politics good for rubio to say hey, we are not playing that anymore. ainsley: anyone you talk to are sick of all of that they are sick of the politics. they want our lawmakers to focus on the issue. many people are saying these problems on the border would be solved. pete: oh, they would be in 15 minutes as the president has said. easy. but the resistance. steve: chuck schumer is taking 10 u.s. senators down to the border today. will he have a different opinion when he comes back?
3:13 am
we will let you know on monday. pete: will we get some tears from crying chuck? we might. i don't know. ainsley: jillian is here she has headlines for us. happy friday. jillian: we do start with sad news here. a community is remembering an arkansas sheriff's deputy shot and killed in the line of duty. officers and friends holding a solemn procession for mike steven last night. the 20-year veteran shot did while responding to a welfare check. >> it's emotional. every time you see it. you know, because it can be one of your officers, within of your friends. could be you. it's the stark reality of what we do. he laid down his life for another and he paid the ultimate price. jillian: the suspect was shot and killed. steven was also a u.s. army veteran. he leaves behind a wife. he is the 25th officer shot and killed in the line of duty this year. two fdny heros who responded to the 9/11 terror attacks have died. richard driscoll now the 200th new york firefighter to die from illnesses linked

>> hey, bernie, let me save you a lot of time and effort, bernie, you missed your time. it got taken from you four years ago, bernie. steve: well, he was a folk hero on the far left in 2016. new polls may suggest that bernie could be losing some steam right now. new polling in new hampshire has bernie in fifth place he lives one state over from there meanwhile a new online survey has sanders dropping to third behind biden and warren. did bernie just miss his time. author of "still winning" still selling out there charles hurt. what's going on with the poll numbers. >> bernie sanders had his moment in the spotlight. and it's most unfortunate for him. think about it. he basically won the nomination last time. steve: right. >> by all accounts. it got completely stolen
3:21 am
from him by the dnc and the clinton campaign. steve: as the president has said of course it was donald trump the businessman there, the system was rigged against him. >> yeah. you know, i'm always amazed. this is a guy that spent his entire career in real estate, doing business deals. steve: right. >> he has a remarkable knack for politics. and for hasn't capping politics which, of course, is why i wrote the book. it's astonishing. his -- he is more accurate than a lot of people that have been in politics their entire careers. steve: yeah. something delicious, i heard somebody describe it, that is going on with the bernie sanders campaign. that is he is out on the stump and he is talking about $15 federal minimum wage for everybody. and now let's take a look at "the washington post" headline. labor fight royals bernie sanders campaign as his campaign workers are demanding $15 hourly pay the candidate has proposed for everybody else.
3:22 am
>> it is truly delicious. pour some syrup and powdered sugar on it, maybe a few raspberries. i don't want to mix it up with the vegetables. but it so delicious. socialism is great as long as you are paying with other people's money. the second you run out of other people's money and you have to start paying it's not so great. why people call him red line bernie. steve: take a look at the statement from the campaign manager to the "the washington post." bernie sanders is the most pro-worker, prolabor candidate running for president. bernie and i both strongly believe in the sanctity of the collective bargaining process and we will not deviate from our commitment to it. he mentions that because the employees are unionized on the bernie team. >> according to his philosophy the way he would treat businesses and individuals in america, he would say that they -- if they did what he is doing, he would say that they hate the workers. so, i kind of have a hard
3:23 am
time taking their lectures and wagging their fixers at the rest of america. steve: tell us a little more about the book still winning why america went all in on donald trump and why we must do it again. >> if you look at donald trump doesn't always get to pick his opponents, although is he very good at highlighting the ones that he wants to highlight. but, you know, when you look at the array of democrats that are lined up right now, it's really, really hard to imagine how, free healthcare for illegal aliens, open borders, you know, ninth month abortions. this is what the democratic party is talking about. and you know, if these people would get out of washington and talk to regular people, i'm talking about the democrats. if they would talk to democratic voters, i don't think that sells in the democratic party let alone the broad mainstream of america. because of that you know, i think i do believe that donald trump is still winning. i think that as it stands right now, he is going to win again.

recognized for prosecuting someone in her own party. senator elizabeth warren is now adding preferred pronouns to her twitter page. presidential candidate putting she and hers in her bio. seems she is following castro's lead who also lists his gender pronouns. ainsley down to you. ainsley: we are talking about the bachelorette, thank you so much. controversy erupts during the season of the bachelorette over the role of faith and intimacy before marriage. >> if you told me you are having sex or had sex with one or multiple of these guys, i would wanting to be going home 100 percent. >> um. >>um if that is something you are not going through, i'm going to continue to grow the relationship and move on. ainsley: shortly after bachelorette hannah browne, she sentsd her suiter, luke parter how see there back to georgia. todd starnes the author of
3:29 am
the upcoming book, culture, jihad and luke's family on his radio show and joins us now with more. the book is called culture jihad and had you will luke on your show. there was a word missing. >> sure did. >> they there are so many of us watching this show and there is always that guy that we wonder why is she keeping him around? he was kind of that guy. listen, i love him, is he a christian. i love that he is bold about his faith. wasn't a good match. and we will get into that a little bit. what did his brother say was happening. >> first of all, i never thought i would be talking about the bachelorette on national television but you never know, who knows. look, the brother says that abc intentionally edited out a lot of the key moments that made him look like a jerk that made him look like a pathological liar. you are absolutely right. this guy has just been really torn up on blogs and on social media. but they say that they believe that abc intentionally did this when
3:30 am
he this found out that he was a truly devout evangelical christian. that they decided early on to make this guy the villain of the show. and everything they did, you know, again, made him that bad guy. ainsley: let's hear from his brother. you talked to him. >> that's right. ainsley: watch. this ridiculed and called a misogynist and all these things standing on a biblical christianity. so, again, back to the basis of this conversation, i do believe that they slandered luke based on his beliefs and his christianity. ainsley: okay. on the show he says he used to be a wild boy and no longer anymore. it's been years since he slept with a woman. and she said but are you calling me -- she says i'm a christian, too. she says i have slept with someone, i have asked for forgiveness, but are you condemning me? are you judging me. a lot of people felt he was being judgmental. people thought he was being manipulative but he was
3:31 am
bullying the other guys because they showed the scenes she doesn't get to see what he is like with the other boys. can't have you both? he made the choice and is he looking for a certain type of woman. she has made a different choice and she is looking for a certain type of man. why do we have to vilify him for this? >> well, of the family says that early on that hannah, who is the young lady on the program, she made it clear that she was one of those individuals who wanted to save sex for marriage. so, the family believes that luke was actually led on here and that all of those video clips that indicated that she wanted to be that kind of a person were actually left out which made it look like he was a very judgmental person. at the end of the day, when you hear some of the things that she said when she dropped that bombshell about the wind mill and the extracurricular activities going on there, i think it's very clear that there was -- there were some shenanigans going on. ainsley, we have to understand something, this is abc television. i glit upcoming book
3:32 am
hollywood is not friendly to evangelical christians. abc has a very ugly track record when it comes to evangelicals. the word here was psychopath. remember what joy behar said on "the view" about vice president mike pence and people who talk to jesus being crazy, being psychopaths. so i think there is probably more to this story. ainsley: okay. the brother did want to set the record straight on who his brother really is as a person. listen to this. >> i want people to know that if anything, i want to be more like luke. luke loves. he loves and he cares for people and he has a heart for jesus and he wants to share the biblical truth of jesus to people. i'm proud of luke. i am proud of the way he conducted himself. he stood for biblical christianity in opposition against this cultural christianity of i can be a christian and believe whatever i want to believe about god based on my own ideas and not what god's word says. ains eyewitness she tweeted this out she said luke, time
3:33 am
and time again jesus loved and ate with sinners and laughed. time and time again he rebuked saints that judged. where do you fall, luke? what is your reaction, todd? >> i think at the end of the day, if you are going to call yourself a devout christian, then you need to follow christian teachings devoutly. and clearly, by her own acknowledgment admissions she has not done that i think that took luke by surprise. early on he was told she was that kind of a person. so i think he was going into whatever kind of relationship he wanted to have with a very distorted view. again, this goes back to what else did abc leave out? and this is a reality show. and as we all know reality sometimes is not the truth. one final thing here, ainsley. luke has been getting death threats. the family has been -- the entire family has been receiving horrible death threats and attacks on social media just
3:34 am
outrageous. ainsley: the truth is, if they did edit it and took out some of the things that would have made him. they didn't put out the whole conversations. we don't really know wanted what. we don't really know who he is as a person. this is a reality show and she gets to make a choice. it would be terrible if he is truly a good person and they have ruined his reputation just because he is a christian. >> i suspect that's exactly what abc did. because this guy is a christian and they wanted ratings and that's low down and despicable. ainsley: say a prayer for everybody involved here. >> amen. ainsley: bless his heart. he is probably going through a hard time right now. thank you so much, todd. you can get his book because it comes out september 10th what's it called? >> "culture jihad." ainsley: thank you. something president trump said. cue the outrage. >> i think that policy comes from a place like white american nationalism. >> donald trump has embraced this rhetoric of racism and xenophobia. >> what they don't know is they are reacting to

from a place of like white american nationalism. >> donald trump has embraced this rhetoric of like racism and xenophobia not beneficial to this country. >> this administration totally has not done anything moral. >> this is really awful. >> the only problem is the comments that they're reacting to are from president obama in 2014. >> even as we are a nation of immigrants, we are also a nation of laws. undocumented workers broke our immigration laws. and i believe that they must be held accountable. that's why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80%. that's why we are going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security. steve: okay. so how did they react when they found out that it wasn't trump and it was obama. here with more is campus reform cabot phillips. good morning to you. >> thanks for having me on. steve: you red this statement and said this is from a president. they did the math and

>> what's your question? >> i mean it, just shows the hypocrisy in politics of one person can say something five years ago and next thing you know it doesn't apply to them anymore. >> wow. i think you could adistrict a mother teresa quote. many college students would say that's evil coming from a place of hatred. very sad to see how intent people are in-posing everything he does. shows how quick the left is radicalized on immigration. five years ago what every person could agree is reasonable deporting people who have broken the law again and committed a crime now it's considered racist. rhetoric of the left to the point you are either pro-illegal immigration or you are anti-immigrant. that's a false dichotomy and false decision that many college students have been given and leads to this kind of rhetoric on campus. steve: cabot, quick exit question. on the average campus, somewhere -- let's say on the east coast of the united states, what percentage of the students like donald trump and what percentage
3:44 am
don't? >> well, it's incredibly hard to find out when people talk to me across the board they oppose him. i think a lot of that is because of the social pressure. they look around and see what happens in when people come out in support of him. they see the threats and violence that comes against them. i think there are a lot more students on college campuses that are willing to stand up or that do support president trump and what he is doing with the country but are afraid to stand up. and that's why it's so important for us to make sure the people are bold on campus, to empower young conservatives on campuses, let them know they are not alone and let them know it's okay to stand up and have a contrary opinion. those opinions should be welcomed on campus because that creates a ebb environment of debate. pete: president obama in 2014 could not get nominated in 2020. steve: based on his word. pete's pete's based on his word and his plos. ainsley: jillian has

pete: as you know well, especially from watching this channel, we just commemorated the 75th anniversary of d-day. now an american flag, that flew on the leading ship invading utah beach on the normandy coast is back here in the united states. the flag shot -- was shot through by german machine gun bullets and tattered by the wind. it was presented to president trump in appreciation of the u.s. liberation of europe in world war ii. watch. >> amid treacherous german mind fields, raging winds and rough seas the lieutenant and his crew led 19 waves of american troops that very dangerous beaches. through it all this flag proudly above the waters. it's my honor to welcome this great american flag back home where it belongs. pete: very cool. joining us now is dutch art collector burk craig and u.s. ambassador to the
3:54 am
neither alans pete hoekstra. burt, let me start with you. you purchased this flag at auction big amount of money. you were motivated to do so. why? >> well, when i saw it at first i was amazed at this piece of american history what's coming for sale given my emotions with liberation and the fact that we lost family members during the bombing raids and the liberation of europe. i knew i wanted to possess and it safeguard it for the future. steve: absolutely. there is even german bullet holes in this flag. when you see someone from another country, from another continent still today remembering the sacrifices of those men and what they did, how does it resonate with you. >> it's phenomenal. my parents were liberated by allied troops. they lived in the northern part of holland allies and
3:55 am
the americans made to liberate them. we have an american cemetery in the netherlands. every memorial day, every grave is adopted by a dutch citizen. they are adorned with flowers, 4 or 5,000 people show up for the memorial day service. they love america they think we are great and appreciate everything we have done. >> burt, it's heart-warming for an american to do that that it's still remembered today. why did you feel like the flag needed to come back to america? >> well, it's a piece of cultural heritage from the united states. you know, it was at auction. everybody could have bought it. i bought it. and, you know, i did it for the right reasons. i feel that i'm temporary custodian of the flag. it doesn't long in the netherlands it belongs in the country where the heroes came from. the heroes came from the united states to free europe. it needs to be here. it needs to be in an institution to tell the story about the liberation and the sacrifices made for
3:56 am
it because many young american soldiers gave their lives for the freedom of europe. so that's what i wanted to make sure that story behind that flag is told to generations to come. pete: mr. ambassador, do you feel like there are more folks than we know who are still appreciative today in europe of what was done? >> there is no question about that. because not only do they appreciate the efforts for liberation, they also benefited from the marshall plan, burt and my parents both were provided the opportunity, you know, my parents emigrated, started a small business, lived the american dream so absolutely the dutch and many other europeans have not forgotten the sacrifices that we made. pete: mr. ambassador, ambassador hoekstra and burt cray thank you for your time and love of freedom. we appreciate you both. >> thank you. pete: still ahead, rush limbaugh is your big show this friday edition.

capitol hill, there he is in front of the house oversight committee. so many questions. >> they were screaming at him. steve: of what is going on on our southern border. he made it very clear crossings are down which is good news, but that is in part because of hot weather and also the crackdown by mexico, but he made it very clear it is a crisis. pete: yes. he talked about how it is a crisis but one that could be averted if only the people sitting in want from of him, the members of congress would fund the required facilities and other. steve: and change the law. pete: change the law so they can do their jobs and untie their hands. none of these kids and families. he has acknowledged they are overwhelmed. he got yelled at. ainsley: they each get a few minutes, five minutes, i think. so yesterday elijah cummings the chairman of this committee and rasheda tlaib, aoc and others progressives hammered him. watch this. >> i guess you feel like you are doing a great job,
4:03 am
right? is that what you are saying? >> we are doing our level best in a -- >> what does that mean? what does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces? >> the conditions in our custody. you want to codify those positions. >> you want to keep them longer. it's been very clear from those conditions you want to keep kids longer. >> we want to keep kids policy together through immigration proceeding. >> you want to keep them longer. >> do you think that the policy of child separation could have contributed to a dehumanizing culture within cbp that contributes and kind of spell spills over into other others of conduct? >> we do not have a dehumanizing culture at cbp. >> okay. >> this is an agency that rescues 4,000 people a year that is committed to the everybody they react with and don't believe there is a dehumanizing culture. steve: here is the thing. we had jeh johnson former will head of the homeland department he said that these laws that everybody has a problem with right now
4:04 am
loopholes have been the law of the land for a very long time. the only way to fix it is for congress to work with the white house to do something. but he also admitted right now the rhetoric is so strong coming from the president and from congress, you know, i don't think is he confident anything will get done. but clearly it has to. ainsley: did he talk about some of the numbers. when the president said we are not going to separate families last fall, in october, he said that the numbers have really changed. for instance, since october the vast majority of families stayed together out of 450,000 families, fewer than 100,000 children are without their parents. only reason those are without their parents is because of healthy and safety concerns. he says. pete: they are not doing it arbitrarily. ainsley: not like thousands and thousands. pete: absolutely not. that's what you would think if you are listening to this so-called mainstream media. i would have to ask elijah cummings, do you feel like you are during a great job? because you haven't delivered on anything that the border patrol needs or
4:05 am
comrade cortez when she says you are dehumanizing. when you say you need to abolish ice and you are dehumanizing the very people forced or who get up every day, put on uniform in a dangerous job and rescue kids and enforce our laws. if you don't like those laws, change them. but that's not what they want to talk about. they want to yell at a member of the trump administration. ainsley: just a few months ago said it was not a crisis. steve: aoc also asked mr. mcaleenan about some of the personnel in that department that have said some very inappropriate things about her, their status and he made it sound like they are in trouble right now. sounds like they are suspended. as they look into it. we are are going to have the cbp deputy commissioner robert perez on with us about an hour from right now. pete: good that the visits to the border have happening. i believe it's chuck schumer and a number of democrat senators. steve: today. pete: will be on the border. the frustrating part they
4:06 am
never give benefit of the doubt to any folks down there. cortez talked about people drinking from the toilet when everybody knows that's a boldface lie of what was happening. if you are going to see it, be honest about what you sees a opposed to try to find a way to spin it. ainsley: are you saying there is fake news out there? pete: maybe. steve: i think it's politics. ainsley: the president always talks about that and these are some of the headlines that would lead to you believe a certain script or certain narrative of this story. i will read you some of these. chicago tribune immigration officers o'hare in chicago detained three children who are u.s. citizens. congresswoman calls it kidnapping of children by our government. steve: that sounds terrible. ainsley: chicag"chicago sun tim" three children released at o'hare after being detained by feds 12 hours. also sounds terrible. steve: it does. ainsley: abc news three kids detained after undocumented parents were too fearful to pick them up. steve: here is the actual story. apparently three children, who were born here in the
4:07 am
united states, flew from mexico into chicago. and they were being accompanied by a woman who had a note that said i authorize this woman to travel with my kids. and customs said, you know what? you are admissible. we are not going to allow you to leave the facility. ainsley: we don't know why. maybe she didn't have a passport. pete: proper visa. steve: they called it admissible. but, nonetheless, they said you have got to have the parents show up. the parents didn't want to come. the mother didn't want to come because she thought it was a trap to deport her. because she had heard about, you know, the raids and things like that. so, she didn't do it until somebody -- some lawyers got involved. there was a u.s. congresswoman jan shakowski had landed at o'hare. she went over as well. it's all because they were traveling not with a parent but with somebody that had a note written by one of the
4:08 am
parents, apparently. it's okay to travel with my kids. pete: turns out our officials have to go by more than a note on a piece of paper. this is what customs and border patrol said in a tweet to clarify. said there are false reports circulating that cbp is detaining three u.s. citizen children at o'hare. the children are alive -- arrived with a mexican citizen that was deemed admissible as steve said. by law, they recollected only -- by law. pete: i missed the emphasis. by law, they could only be released to a parent or legal guardian. their mother has picked them up without incident. ainsley: once again, congress, if you don't like that law, then you can change it. steve: jan schakowsky the congresswoman who got involved, she said i feel that it's kind of kidnapping of the children buyer our government and i am really fed up. they have created a situation they didn't have to be. i'm so resentful for this. pete: talk about loaded language. steve: it's the law. ainsley: what if someone
4:09 am
took your child to another country, wouldn't you want authorities to call you and say hold on, what's going on? where are you? what's the real story? pete: kidnapping, kidnapping of children. protocol. that's the rhetoric we have got. steve: that's the story hifnsd the story. ainsley: all right. things are heating up because the election is right around the corner. pete: big corner. ainsley: the announcement has been made for the next democratic debate. so many candidates they have to decide it. so, on tuesday, not next tuesday, the following one, in 10 days, tuesday, july 30th, here's the list of who is going to perform or be on stage in that debate. steve: they will be performing being. ainsley: two big ones bernie sanders and aaron. pete buttigieg, beto o'rourke, amy klobuchar, hickenlooper, bullock, delayne, ryan and williamson. you have the two most hard leftist bernie sanders and elizabeth warren did not face off last time it will be very interesting. on night two, you have cory booker and hulaian castro
4:10 am
and others but the top two are joe biden and kamala harris. remember what happened last time they got together. the way that apparently cnn decided how to stack these two decks, because there are so many candidates, they had to do it over two nights. any divided everybody into one of three tiers. and then they would pick a certain number out of each tier okay out of tier 1 the people in the double digits, okay. they are going to go here. they're going to go there and that is the lineup for those two. ainsley: bill de blasio is the second night on wednesday. pete: that will be interesting. because publicly, bernie sanders and elizabeth warren have been very kind to each other. we will see if they start to try to pick at each other at this debate. steve: i bet this next topic comes up at the debate because bernie sanders has made it very clear when he
4:11 am
is campaigning he would like to see a federal minimum wage of $15 an hour. yet, the height of hypocrisy. it turns out that he is not paying $15 per hour to his field hires on his campaign. pete: what? steve: and they want $15 an hour. but his campaign says, look, they're unionized. there is a collective bargaining deal already on the table. pete: details. ainsley: they are using his own rhetoric against him now. here's a flashback of what he has said about minimum wage. >> the working class of this country is sick and tired of working longer hours for lower wages. >> we have got to raise the minimum wage to a living wage. [cheers] >> we have got raise that minimum wage to $15 an hour. >> we should raise the minimum wage to a living wage, 15 bucks an hour. when i talked about it four years ago, people said i was a little bit nuts on that
4:12 am
one, too. pete: this is amazing. steve: apparently somebody on the campaign actually heard him same wait a minute, we are not getting $15 an hour. ainsley: if you were going to say that you would think how much am i paying my people? campaign staffers fleeing, poverty wages. many are barely surviving financially. can't exsm us to build the loudest grassroots campaign in history it's not easy. steve: bernie says one thing out on the trump but does another kno-ho-co another thing. charlie hurt, has a new book out, says that irony is delicious. >> truly delicious. pour some syrup, some powdered sugar on it and maybe a few raspberries. socialism is great as long as you are playing with other people's money. the second you run out of other people's money and you have to start paying for it, it's not so great. according to his philosophy the way he would treat businesses and individuals
4:13 am
in america, he would say that they -- if they did what i he is doing he would say they hate the workers. i have a hard time taking their lectures and wagging their fixers at the rest of america. pete: what did it take 15 or 20 minutes for him to change this policy? i don't know how you run a campaign on $15 and collective bargaining prevents you from giving your own people -- it's rich. steve: maybe he can't afford to pay them $15 an hour or he would have to let some people go. does that sound familiar? ainsley: that's what the small businesses are saying. pete: the bernie model doesn't work at $15 an hour. ainsley: or pass the cost onto the voter. steve: how would that work? pete: he will by raising your taxes if he wins. it all makes sense. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us. jillian: we begin with a fox news alert. iran saying the u.s. did not shoot down its drone in the strait of hormuz. comes hours after the president trump says the uss

>> united states will the right to defend our personnel and interests and calls upon all nations to condemn iran's attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation and global commerce. steve: there have you got president trump yesterday in the east room calling on world leaders to act after a u.s. warship apparently destroyed an iranian drone in the strait of hormuz. trump says the drone came within 1,000 yards of the uss boxer and apparently ignored repeated calls to stand down. now iran claims what are they talking about? we didn't lose any drones. here to weigh in is former u.s. army special ops and strategic advisor to white fox defense bretve. >> bret: velicovich. apparently we didn't shoot it down with a missile or anything we got some sort of a sonic device, right. >> exactly. first let me say that i am thrilled to hear we conducted some sort of military action against the
4:21 am
iranians. it's about time we really have, for the most part, they haven't been held accountable for their action. that's really emboldened the iranians. it's made them look at us a bit weak because we simply haven't done much to stop them from a lot of their hostility and it's given them the opportunity to conduct even more aggressive actions. and what a lot of people don't realize is that the iranians have been flying drones nearly 24/7 along the straits of hormuz with the whole intent of looking for targets of opportunity to strike. and so they are using these explosive laden drones to strike oil tankers and they have shown the propensity to do that within the last few months. they have actually hit oil tankers in the past. the marines here had a system, it's great that they actually employed it in this case because they potentially saved lives here from an iranian drone that may have actually struck that ship. steve: sure. it does go to show you that
4:22 am
things are tense in that part of the world. i mean, the people of iran are hungry because the sanctions have kicked in. the president's maximum pressure campaign is working. their economy is in free-fall and now, you know, yesterday they said we didn't lose a drone but then again they have also come out and said yeah, and we didn't attack those tankers, either. >> right. bottom line is iranian leadership are a bunch of liars. they are full of deceit and especially the foreign minister who has recently come out and basically said that there were no drones in the area at all. so i definitely trust the u.s. military in this case. but what is so interesting about this particular case here is that not even a single shot or missile was fired to take it down. there was a system on there known as basically light marine air defense integrated system which has a counter drone technology piece of that which basically has radar and cameras that are scanning the area basically creating a virtual bubble around these ships to determine if there is a friendly or
4:23 am
hostile drone threats in the area. and it's simply used rf jamming to block that signal from my understanding to knock that drone out of the sky. those rut systems that a lot of these naval ships are having to use because you never know if the iranians are going to conduct a drone strike. steve: sure. and at the very least, you don't know if it's armed you, but it is an eye in the sky so that the iranians with review targets of opportunity. >> that's the biggest problem. it's one thing to have drones flying around the persian gulf conducting surveillance. it's very difficult to determine if these iranian drones are up there just conducting standard surveillance or if they are up there ready to conduct a strike. you don't have the opportunity to do that. you have to make split second decisions. we are talking about this drone only 1,000 yards away from this ship. they absolutely had to make a quick decision to take it down and we better be safe than sorry. steve: all right. bretvel voyeur kitchenbrett vels

4:31 am
party captured by leftist is embracing anti-semitism. >> this resolution is probably not going to get a vote. but it's still probably going to shift the direction of the party. the house was probably going to vote on a resolution condemning boycotts of israel. and i think part of the agenda here is to make a deal where they let that one die and they let this one die. so they are just not going to say anything about -- pete: the house was going to vote to condemn the bds movement and anti-semitism. instead this gets proposed and they do nothing. have we lost a bipartisan consensus of the support of israel. >> i think we saw that already in response to ilhan omar's anti-semitic comments about the jews brainwashing america and about dual loyalty of politicians who support israel instead of passing a resolution they were going to pass a resolution to condemn anti-semitism in the house they couldn't. they had to make a rests lucien to condemn everything bad. pete: it's amazing. ilhan omar when she was running said she did not support bds on the campaign now she goes into congress and shows her true colors.

5:20 am
what is the pervasive culture of customs and border protection an agency i've been a part of over 26 years. we are a culture of front line agents, officers, men and women, who have already affected 4,000 rescues, risking our own lives for the sake of rescuing people who find themselves in danger trying to more often than not illegally cross the border. we are a culture of looking out for every time that we have to protecting our communities, protecting our citizens, from gangs, gang members, drug traffickers. we are a culture filled with brothers, sisters, fathers, daughters, who make sure we conduct and carry ourselves with utmost professionalism, along with every bit of focus on the national security mission that we have. i'm absolutely proud of all of our front linemen and women, how they look to adhere to our core values and live up to those

steve: congress and the white house have to come up with something. given the political nature of everything now i wouldn't hole my breath. we heard the president talk a lot about new border wall is being constructed at this very hour. what is the very latest official update on the construction or reconstruction of the border wall? >> well, we just hit a major milestone, steve. we now have built over the last 2 1/2 years, just over 51 miles of new, enduring capability along our southwest border, primarily in southern california, in the area of el paso. we're continuing to build all along south texas, along southern california. we will soon building in yuma arizona as well. steve, it is really important for viewers to understand, while we're dealing with the humanitarian crisis, nearly 40, 50% of our agents diverted to focus on humanitarian mission. this infrastructure, the wall, along with technology we're deploying along the border, now
5:23 am
more than ever critically important to pursue and maintain that border security mission. we have people who are trying to evade capture, criminals, gangs members, drug traffickers, otherwise, that we have to absolutely are paying attention to, doing our very level best to make sure we apprehend those people, keep them out of the country. the wall is a critical part of that part of our mission. much. steve: before you go democrat from new jersey, cory booker, a senator introduced a bill to block i.c.e. and cpb officers from wearing the word police on their uniforms because as his bill says, when the word, when i.c.e. agents display the word police on their uniforms, they blur the line between local law enforcement and immigration agents and confuse immigrant communities. if the police come to your door, they can go into your house, but i.c.e. cannot. he would like to see i.c.e. not
5:24 am
wearing slickers and uniforms that say police on it. what do you think about that? >> well, steve, look, i'm not familiar with the particulars of proproposed legislation but let me tell you this, police is a universal understood moniker that any and every law enforcement agency literally around the world utilizes. what it provides for, just like the uniform that i'm wearing right now, is an awareness. safety and security, awareness, not only for agents and officers outperforming their duties but the people in our community as well. so i would caution people before they make any changes in that, particularly before our safety and security. steve: robert perez, the cpb deputy commissioner. we thank you very much for giving us all the answers live from d.c. thank you, sir. >> thank you, steve. steve: coming up, lara trump is here. what does she think about the next debate lineup with the democrats. so stick around.
