Trump suspends tariff threat, criticized for immigration deal with Mexico


COUNTRY. STEVE HARRIGAN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LELAND: ALL RIGHT, DEMOCRATIC RESPONSE ALL OF THIS WE EARLIER HEARD FROM REPUBLICAN, IS BEEN JOHN ROSE, WE BRING IN NEW JERSEY, SMITH, MEMBER OF HOUSE AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE AND THE BLUE DOG COALITION, NICE TO SEE YOU, SIR. AS ALWAYS, APPRECIATED. YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE PROBLEM SOLVERS COALITION AS I UNDERSTAND IT. PROBLEM SOLVED HERE FOR THE PRESIDENT? HE HAS GOT BIG AGREEMENTS FOR MEXICO TO DO STUFF TO TRY TO STOP THE FLOW OF MIGRANTS. AND NO TARIFFS, WHAT IS TO COMPLAIN ABOUT?>>I’M NOT COMPLAINING. IN FACT, IT MAY BE A LITTLE BIT OF AN UNUSUAL ELECTED OFFICIAL AND UNUSUAL CONGRESSMAN THAT I DO NOT TAKE PLEASURE WHEN SOMEONE ELSE FAILS, PARTICULARLY IN OUR GOVERNMENT. BECAUSE QUITE FRANKLY, IF THE PRESIDENT FAILS AT SOMETHING, THEN WE ALL FAIL IN THE COUNTRY. THIS SEEMS TO HAVE WORKED OUT. MEXICO SHOULD BE PART OF ANY AGREEMENT THAT WE HAVE. MEXICO SHOULD BE HELPING, MEXICO SHOULD BE PART OF THE PROCESS. THEY HAVE STRONG BORDERS THEMSELVES, THEY UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF HAVING A BORDER AND I THINK THE FACT THAT THEY ARE NOW UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT IT TOO IS HELPFUL. THIS WHOLE IMMIGRATION SITUATION FROM BEGINNING TO END HAS MANY PIECES TO IT. I BELIEVE THAT ALL OF IT COULD BE WORKED OUT. FOR THE FOLKS THAT ARE HERE AND UNDOCUMENTED, FOR THE DACA FOLKS, DREAMERS, AND ALSO FOR THE OPEN BORDERS, WE NEED TO DEAL WITH ALL OF THESE ISSUES AND IN A COMBINED WAY. MOST OF ALL, WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE A BETTER IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. THAT IS NOT A REPUBLICAN — LELAND: EVERYONE AGREES THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM, CONGRESSMAN. THE QUESTION, HOW TO GET THE ANSWER AS YOU POINT OUT, YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON THIS IS SHALL WE SAY, UNUSUAL. IN FACT I’VE NOT HEARD THEM DEMOCRATS SO FAR PRAISE THE PRESIDENT FOR HOW HE HAS DEALT WITH THE SITUATION VIS-C-VIS TARIFFS, MEXICO AND IMMIGRATION. IT BEGS THE QUESTION, WOULD YOU SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT GO TO THE BRINK AGAIN AND DO SUPPORT MEXICO TO THE BRINK WITH CHINA RIGHT NOW? ON TARIFFS, AND TRYING TO GET A BETTER DEAL FROM THE CHINESE AS WELL?>>EVERY SITUATION IS DIFFERENT. YOU HAVE TO EVALUATE THEM INDIVIDUALLY. THERE ARE THE DEMOCRATS I THINK WE SHOULD DO SOMETHING. SOME OF THE FOLKS IN THE BLUE DOGS, SOME OF THE FOLKS IN THE PROBLEM SOLVERS TEND TO BE MORE MODERATE. HE JUST CANNOT HAVE OPEN BORDERS WHERE ANYONE CAN COME IN ANYTIME. I LOVE IMMIGRATION, I BELIEVE IN IMMIGRATION. I BELIEVE IN LEGAL IMMIGRATION. AS FAR AS CHINA IS CONCERNED WE DO HAVE TO PLAY HARD BECAUSE CHINA WITHOUT QUESTION WAS TO BE THE NUMBER ONE POWER IN THE WORLD. AND AS YOU KNOW, THEY MANIPULATE THEIR MONEY AND THEY HAVE TECHNOLOGICALLY STOLEN A LOT OF WHAT WE HAVE. AND THEY HAVE CERTAINLY BEEN A FORCE HAS BEEN DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH AND I THINK THAT WE HAVE TO SHOW THEM THAT WE ARE PLAYING FOR REAL. THAT WE WANT TO BE FAIR AND WHAT WE ALWAYS SAY, FAIR AND OPEN TRADE. I DO NOT WANT THE UNISYS ALWAYS GET THE SHORT END OF THE STICK.>>THE PRESIDENT SAID THE SAME THING. HE IS GONE CRITICISM FOR THE DEAL MADE WITH MEXICO TO AVOID THESE TARIFFS AND THAT THE LANGUAGE FROM THE MEXICANS LEAVES A LOT UNSPECIFIED IF THEY’RE GOING TO TAKE NEW AND DRASTIC MEASURES, THEY’RE GOING TO DO ALL OF THE THINGS BIT A LOT OF ADJECTIVES, NOT A LOT OF HARD FACTS AND FIGURES OTHER THAN 6000 TROOPS TO THE BORDER. DO YOU THINK THIS SHOWS STRENGTH TO THE CHINESE? DOES IT SHOW WEAKNESS AS THE CHINA PROBLEM SORT OF DWARFS THE MEXICO PROBLEM AS IT RELATES TO THE ECONOMICS OF THE COUNTRY?>>EVERY TIME WE SHOW STRENGTH, I THINK THAT IS ALWAYS GOOD IF IT IS –>>WAS A SHOWING STRENGTH OR THE PRESIDENT CAVED?>>NO, I MEAN I THINK IS SHOWING STRENGTH. AND I THINK WHETHER IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO WHEN TEDDY ROOSEVELT SAID SPEAK SOFTLY BUT CARRY A BIG STICK OR JFK, WE HAVE HAD, REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTS THAT HAVE UNDERSTOOD AT TIMES, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA MUST SHOW WHAT I WILL CALL INTELLIGENCE STRENGTH. YOU HAVE TO BE THOUGHTFUL BUT WE HAVE TO SHOW THE STRENGTH. THIS IS A REAL ISSUE. CHINA AND RUSSIA ARE REAL ISSUES IN THE WORLD AND REALLY AND TRULY WANT TO MOVE FORWARD AND WANT TO BE THE POWERHOUSES OF THE WORLD. QUITE FRANKLY I THINK IT IS THEIT SHOULD BE. LELAND: CONGRESSMAN, WE THANK YOU. WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE ON THE AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE WE HOPE TO GO TO THAT. NO MATTER WHAT POLITICAL PARTY PEOPLE ARE IN. WE THANK YOU FOR JOINING US PUTTING ON A SEAT WHILE IT IS NICE AND SUNNY OUTSIDE. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THE REST OF THE DAY.

SCOTUS allows Trump to enforce new restrictions on asylum seekers


HEARING THAT OCASIO-CORTEZ OVERSAW. IT GOT PRETTY HEATED. BEFORE WE GET TO YOU, KEN. LET’S SHOW THE VIEWER RASHIDA TLAIB RIPPING INTO THOMAS HOMAN.>>MR. HOMAN AS A FELLOW AMERICAN I WHAT YOU TO KNOW YOUR CONTRIBUTION AS ACTING DIRECTOR OF I.C.E. UP THIS ADMINISTRATION WILL BE REMEMBERED AS ONE THAT WAS RUTHLESS, I HUMANE TREATMENT OF ASYLUM SEEKERS. THE AUTHOR OF THE SEPARATION POLICY AND NOW THIS SICK, PREVENTING SICK CHILDREN BEFORE THIS COMMITTEE SEEKING LIFE-SAVING MEDICAL TREATMENT. LIZ: NOW WATCH TOM AS HOMAN FIRING BACK.>>IN MY 34 YEARS I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH HATE TOWARD A LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY IN MY LIFE. YOU WANT TO ABOLISH IT. WE ARE ENACTING LAWS.>>YOUR TAME HAS EXPIRED. LIZ: FACT CHECK.ORG SAID UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION THERE WERE FAMILIES SEPARATED FROM THEIR CHILDREN. AND ISIS SAVED WOMEN AND CHILDREN FROM SEX TRAFFICKING WITH, CAPTURED ENOUGH DRUGS TO KILL THE AMERICAN POPULATION TWO TIMES OVER. HE’S FULLY RIGHT. HIS JOB IS TO FOLLOW THE LAW, THE FACT THAT HE WAS BEING CRITICIZED BY THE CONGRESSWOMAN FOR DOING THAT, IT’S NOT SURPRISING THAT’S WHAT WAS HAPPENING. SHE IS IN CONGRESS, IF SHE WANTS TO DO IT, SHE SHOULD DO IT. LIZ: THE SUPREME COURT HANDED PRESIDENT TRUMP A VICTORY RULING THAT THE ADMINISTRATION CAN ENFORCE ITS RESTRICTIONS OVER ASYLUM SEEKERS. YOUR TAKE ON THAT?>>NOT SURPRISED AT ALL. THE PRESIDENT HAS THE AUTHORITY TO RESTRICT THE ENTRY OF ANY CLASP ALIEN HE VIEWS DETRIMENTAL TO THE COUNTRY. HE HAS A DISCRETION AS IT RELATES TO ASYLUM AND REFUGEES. HE ACTED UNDER HIS AUTHORITY TO DO THAT. I’M NOT SURPRISED THE SUPREME COURT STRUCK DOWN THE BAN ON THE NATIONWIDE INJUNCTION. LIZ: THERE ESTIMATE THAT 600,000 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WILL CROSS THE BORDER THIS YEAR. EVEN TULSI GABBARD IS CALLING FOR WALLS AT THE BORDER.>>WITHOUT SECURE BORDERS WE DON’T HAVE A COUNTRY. WE HAVE TO HAVE SECURE BORDERS. THIS IS NOT TRUMP’S WALL FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA. IT’S ABOUT WHAT MAKES IT IN SOME PLACES IT MAY MAKE THE MOST OF SENSE OR A PHYSICAL BARRIER IN PLACE, IN OTHER PLACES IT WON’T MAKE SENSE. LIZ: TULSI GABBARD IS SOUNDING LIKE SENATOR BIDEN.>>WE DO NEED BORDER SECURITY. WITHOUT IT WE ARE NOT A NATION. EVERY OTHER NATION IN THE WORLD HAS SOME TYPE OF IMMIGRATION POLICY THAT MAKES SENSE. WE ARE LOOKING THAT. AND SHE IS RIGHT. WE DON’T NEED A WALL ALONG THE ENTIRE BORDER. WE DO NEED SECURITY. WHETHER THAT’S THROUGH TELLING OR A WALL. WE NEED SOMETHING.>>LET’S SHIFT GEARS. IN CALIFORNIA THEY ARE CONSIDERING A NEW BILL TO GIVE FREE HEALTHCARE TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS OVER 65 YEARS OLD. WHAT’S YOUR TAKE HERE?>>IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO ME. I DON’T KNOW WHY THEY WOULD DO THAT. IT WILL COST THEIR TAXPAYERS A LOT OF MONEY. WE ARE NOT GOING TO DO THAT YOUR OUR STATE. YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE COMING HERE ILLEGALLY AND INCENTIVIZING THEM TO COME. AS SECRETARY HOMAN TALKED ABOUT. WHEN YOU DO THAT YOU CREATE OTHER PROBLEMS LIKE HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND DRUG TRAFFICKING. LIZ: WE WERE WATCHING PARTS OF THE HEARING WAITING FOR DEMOCRAT REACTION TO THE CRIMES COMMITTED BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ON AMERICAN SOIL AND THE LACK OF WHAT MANY SAY IS JUSTICE. WE HAVE AN EIGHTH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT ACCUSED OF RAPE IN MARYLAND AND AN ILLEGAL ALIEN WHO WAS SENTENCED TO SIX YEARS IN PRISON. WHERE IS THE DEMOCRAT REACTION TO THIS?>>APPARENTLY THOSE ARE INCONVENIENT STORIES. THE PROBLEM IS THERE ARE SO MANY OF THOSE STORIES. I WISH THE DEMOCRATS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO SOME OF THE VICTIMS’ FAMILIES, PEOPLE WHO LOST LOVED ONES.

Brandon Judd: Mexico is becoming true border patrol partners


SUPREME COURT RULING IN FAVOR OF THE ADMINISTRATION’S ENFORCEMENT OF RESTRICTIONS ON ASYLUM SEEKERS TRAVELING THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY LIKE MEXICO. IT REQUIRES THEM TO SEEK PROTECTION THERE INSTEAD OF IN THE U.S. THE PRESIDENT LINK IS A BIG WIN FOR THE BORDER. LET’S BRING IN BORDER PATROL COUNCIL PRESIDENT BRANDON. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. HOW DOES THIS IMPACT IMMIGRATION NUMBERS AT THE BORDER?>>THIS IS A MAJOR WIN BUT NOT SURPRISING. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE DECISION THAT WE ARE ONLY TWO JUDGES, WE KNOW THAT THE SUPREME COURT IS MADE UP OF FOUR LEVELS AND FIVE CONSERVATIVES. YOU ONLY HAD TWO OF THE LIBERAL CONTINGENTS THAT OPPOSE — I’M SORRY, THIS IS GOING TO DRIVE THE NUMBERS DOWN. WE SAW THAT IN APRIL 2017 WHEN WE HIT 45 YEAR LOWS UNDER TRUMP. IT WAS PREDICATED UPON THE FACT THAT INDIVIDUALS THOUGHT THEY WERE TO BE HELD PENDING THIRD DEPORTATION PROCEEDING IF THEY NOW CAN’T ENTER THE U.S., CLAIM ASYLUM AND GET RELIEF FROM THEY ARE JUST NOT GOING TO COME TO THE U.S. THE LOOPHOLES THEY WERE EXPLOITING, WITH A MAGNET THAT DREW PEOPLE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. NOW THAT THE MAIN THING IS GOING TO BE REMOVED, LESS PEOPLE WELCOME.>>THE PRESIDENT RECENTLY SET IN MEXICO, THREATENED MEXICO WITH TARIFFS IF THEY DO NOT DO SOMETHING ABOUT IMMIGRATION AT THEIR BORDERS AND MEXICO AGREED. I WANT TO ASK YOU WHAT MEXICO HAS BEEN DOING TO HELP THE SITUATION OUT? HOW HAVE THE NUMBERS GONE BECAUSE OF THAT?>>AND THREE SHORT MONTHS, WE DROPPED IN APPREHENSIONS BY NEARLY 100,000. IN MAY OF THIS YEAR, THE BORDER PATROL, NOT THE PORT OF ENTRY FOR THE BORDER PATROL ALONE APPREHENDED CLOSE TO 133,000 INDIVIDUALS. IN AUGUST, WE WERE DOWN TO, RIGHT AROUND 51000. YOU THINK ABOUT MEXICO HAS STEPPED UP, THEY ARE BECOMING TRUE BORDER SECURITY PARTNERS AND THIS IS THE FIRST PRESIDENT IN MY CAREER THAT I’VE EVER SEEN GET MEXICO TO ACTUALLY STEP TO THE PLATE AND DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO BE PARTNERS WITH THE U.S. AND TRYING TO SECURE BOTH THEIR COUNTRY AND OUR COUNTRY AS WELL.>>THIS IS A BIG WIN FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. YOU ALSO SEE THE LEVEL OF IMPACT WHICH IN RESPECT TO LEGAL DRUGS CROSSING THE BORDER AND OTHER ISSUES WE EXPERIENCE AT THE BORDER IN TERMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING?>>THIS IS ACTUALLY GOING TO HELP. ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE FACE IS, WHEN YOU HAVE ASYLUM-SEEKERS COMING ACROSS THE BORDER, THEY TAKE UP ALL LOT OF OUR RESOURCES. WE HAVE TO DEPLOY RESOURCES TO THE AREAS WHERE THEY CROSS THE BORDER. WE TAKE THEM BACK TO OUR PROCESSING CENTERS AND PROCESS THEM. AS ALL TAKES RESOURCES AND WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT THE CRIMINAL CARTELS, THEY FORCE THESE ASYLUM SEEKERS TO HIT US IN CERTAIN AREAS AND WHEN WE TAKE OUR RESOURCES OUT, IT CREATES ARTIFICIAL GAPS IN THE BORDER AND ALLOWS THE CRIMINAL CARTELS TO CROSS THEIR HIGHER VALUED PRODUCTS. OPIOID OR ILLICIT DRUGS THEY ARE ABLE TO GET ACROSS THERE PRODUCT. NOW THAT WE ARE REMOVING ASYLUM-SEEKERS, IT’S GOING TO BE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR CARTELS TO GET THERE PRODUCTS ACROSS THE BORDER.>>THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. THE QUESTION OF LEGALITY, YES, THANK TEMPORARILY IMPOSE IT BUT THEY RULE WHETHER IT’S LEGAL OR NOT, IF YOU LOOK AT THE REQUIREMENT, YOU NEED TO ALLOW COMMENTS, DID YOU THINK THIS COULD BE STRUCK DOWN?>>NO, I DON’T. IF IT WAS GOING TO GET STRUCK DOWN, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN STRUCK DOWN IN THE END. ONE OF THE JUSTICES I BELIEVE IT WAS RUTH BADER GINSBURG, SHE QUESTIONS LEGALITY BECAUSE OF THE PUBLIC REPORTING. NONE OF THE OTHER JUDGES FOUND THAT SO I DON’T THINK IT WILL GET STRUCK DOWN. IF IT IS, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT WITHIN THE LAWS TO DETERMINE HOW THEY ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT AND ENFORCE THE LAWS AND THE COURTS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE DIFFERENTIAL AS LONG AS THEY DO NOT GO OUTSIDE THOSE LAWS. I DON’T BELIEVE THEY DID GO OUTSIDE WITH THAT NEW ROLE.>>THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US AND THANK YOU FOR DOING ALL YOU DO TO PROTECT US. YOU TALK ABOUT THIS, THERE’S STILL FEWER IMMIGRANTS COMING IN, THINK ABOUT HOW IMMIGRATION HAS MADE CENTURY, ALL IMMIGRANTS, DO YOU WORRY ABOUT PERHAPS SOME OF THE GREAT WORKERS FROM THE GREAT INNOVATORS THAT AREN’T ABLE TO COME IN BECAUSE OF THE WALL OR RULES LIKE THIS THAT MAKE IMMIGRATION DIFFICULT?>>WHEN YOU LOOK AT LEGAL IMMIGRATION, WE ARE ALL FOR THAT. WE ALL WANT LEGAL IMMIGRATION. WE WANT THESE GREAT MINDS TO COME HERE. WE WANT THEM TO DO IT LEGALLY. WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AS FAR AS THIS, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. PEOPLE WERE CROSSING THE BORDER IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW.

Commerce Dept. announces new steel tariffs on China, Mexico


LIZ: WE HAVE SOME BREAKING NEWS AND I DO WANT TO MARK THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS AND THE S&P AND WHERE THEY STAND RIGHT NOW. WE DO HAVE THE DOW UP 216, S&P UP 28. HERE’S THE NEWS. THE U.S. COMMERCE DEPARTMENT HAS JUST ANNOUNCED IT IS IMPOSING PRELIMINARY ANTI-DUMPING TARIFFS ON CERTAIN STEEL COMING IN FROM CHINA AND MEXICO. SPECIFICALLY, IT IS, I UNDERSTAND, THE KIND OF STEEL THAT IS USED IN BIG STRUCTURAL EFFORTS HERE. A 141% DUTY ON THE STRUCTURAL STEEL AND A 31% DUTY ON MEXICAN STRUCTURAL STEEL. SO CHINA GETTING HIT THE HARDEST HERE. AGAIN, A TARIFF OF 141% ON INCOMING STEEL USED FOR BIG STRUCTURES FROM CHINA. THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT SAYS NO CANADIAN FABRICATED STRUCTURAL STEEL HAS BEEN DUMPED IN THE U.S. MARKET SO IT ESCAPES THIS, BUT THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN OPEN TO SAYING QUITE CONSTANTLY THAT THE U.S. STEEL INDUSTRY HAS BENEFITED FROM THIS WHILE STEEL STOCKS ARE MOVING HIGHER AT THE MOMENT, WE DID KNOW OF COURSE THAT U.S. STEEL HAD CLOSED A PLANT IN AUGUST AND THEN I BELIEVE JUST BACK IN JULY, THEY HAD LAID OFF ABOUT 200 OTHER WORKERS IN GARY, INDIANA. WE ARE WATCHING WHAT APPEARS TO

Pompeo discusses IP theft and the crisis on the U.S. southern border


THE BURGER CHAIN GEARING UP IN A SERIES PREMIER GAME OF THRONES, THE LATEST MARKETING EFFORT FOR THE SHOW. STRIKING A DEAL. DONALD TRUMP ANNOUNCING A MONUMENTAL TRADE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE US AND CHINA COULD BE FINALIZED WITHIN THE NEXT FOUR WEEKS BUT HAS NO PLANS FOR A MUCH-ANTICIPATED SUMMIT WITH THE CHINESE PRESIDENT FOLLOWING DAY THE INTENSE NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN WASHINGTON AND BEIJING. ENDING YESTERDAY WITH AN OVAL OFFICE MEETING BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND THE CHINESE VICE PREMIER, THE PRESIDENT SAID THE PROPOSED DEAL WILL COVER ALL BASES INCLUDING A CULTURE, TECHNOLOGY AND IP THEFT. JOINING ME IN A FIRST ON FOX INTERVIEW IS THE SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO. A PLEASURE TO SEE YOU.>>NICE TO BE WITH YOU. MARIA: THE IP THEFT ISSUE IS SOMETHING WE’VE SPOKEN ABOUT BEFORE. HOW DO YOU CHANGE SOMETHING THAT IS INGRAINED IN A COUNTRY’S CULTURE? DO YOU THINK THE US WILL COME UP WITH AN ENFORCEMENT MECHANISM TO PUT IN PLACE SO THE CHINESE KEEP THEIR PROMISES OF NOT STEALING FROM THE WEST?>>THIS IS A CHALLENGE. THAT’S WHY NEGOTIATIONS HAVE TAKEN AS LONG AS THEY HAVE. DONALD TRUMP FOR THE FIRST TIME CALLED OUT CHINA FOR THIS THEFT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF US DOLLARS STOLEN BY THE CHINESE OVER THE PAST DECADES. DONALD TRUMP IS ADDRESSING IT. THE WORK THAT IS BEING DONE IS ABOUT THE ENFORCEMENT MECHANISM. WHAT IS IT YOU DO THEY DON’T LIVE UP TO? THE CHINESE ENTERED DEALS BEFORE WHERE THEY DIDN’T FOLLOW THROUGH AND THE MISSION STEVE MNUCHIN AND AMBASSADOR LIGHTHIZER HAVE IS TO GET THIS DONE IN A WAY THAT AFTER THE DEAL IS DONE AND THE SIGNING CEREMONY AMERICAN COMPANIES CAN COUNT ON THE FACT THEY DO BUSINESS IN CHINA WITHOUT SUBSTANTIAL RISK THERE IP WILL BE STOLEN AND IF IT IS THEY WILL HAVE A TOOL TO RECOVER FOR THEIR LOSS. MARIA: THE PRESIDENT IS USING TARIFFS AS LEVERAGE.>>YES, TO GET THEM TO COME TO THE TABLE AND TAKE SERIOUSLY THE FUNDAMENTAL OBLIGATION FOR ENGAGING IN COMMERCE WITH THE AMERICAN BUSINESS COMMUNITY AND AMERICAN CITIZENS. MARIA: WE ARE TRYING TO DO A DEAL WITH A COUNTRY THAT IS ABSOLUTELY THE OPPOSITE OF OUR CULTURE. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES IN CHINA TALK ABOUT THIS POLICE STATE THEY HAVE CREATED IN TERMS OF ROUNDING UP CHINESE MUSLIMS, SAYING IT IS FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND YET THERE ARE OFFICERS WITH GUNS AND BARBED WIRE AROUND THESE VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTERS FOR MUSLIMS.>>A LONG HISTORY OF CHINA NOT ABIDING BY ITS CONSTITUTION, PEOPLE CAN IMPRESS IS THEIR FAITH. CHINA’S OWN CONSTITUTION. YOU TODAY THEY ROUNDED UP CLOSE TO 1 MILLION MUSLIMS, IN ONE PART OF THEIR COUNTRY, TREATING THEM HORRIBLY. THEY SAY THEY ARE REEDUCATION CAMPS BUT THEY WON’T LET PEOPLE IN TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON, VERY LIMITED ACCESS TO THIS. I MET WITH SOMEONE IN MY OFFICE. MARIA: THE SURVIVORS OF THE CAMPS.>>SOME OF THEM HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS IN THOSE CAMPS. ONE OF THEM AFTER OUR MEETING HAD HIS AUNT AND UNCLE TAKEN TO A CAMP IN CHINA. THIS IS THE KIND OF THING THEY DO TO IMPACT HIS BEHAVIOR. TO IMPACT HIS BEHAVIOR HERE IN AMERICA. IT IS UNACCEPTABLE. THEY NEED — HIS MOTHER IS IN A CAMP AS WELL, NEEDS TO GET HER US PASSPORT BACK. THESE HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES ARE TRAGIC. THEY ARE HISTORIC AND DONALD TRUMP IS TAKING ON THESE CHALLENGES. MARIA: IS THIS PART OF THE DISCUSSION IN TERMS OF THE NEAR-TERM TRADE DEAL? WHAT IS THE DISCUSSION WITH THE CHINESE IN TERMS OF THE BROADER ISSUES, NOT NECESSARILY A QUID PRO QUO ON THE TRADE DEAL.>>THE TRADE DEAL HAS ITS OWN DIALOGUE TAKING PLACE BUT IT IS AGAINST THE BACKGROUND OF BROADER ISSUES, CHINA’S USE OF TECHNOLOGY IN A WAY THAT WILL PUT AMERICANS AT RISK, TECHNOLOGY FROM HUAWEI BEING PUT IN PLACE ACROSS THE WORLD, A COMPANY THAT IS CLOSE TO THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT AND WILL DO WITH THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT ASKS IT TO DO. WE HAVE SOUNDED THE ALARM URGING NATIONS SECURITY APPARATUS FROM AROUND THE WORLD NOT TO PUT THIS TECHNOLOGY, THE CHALLENGES WITH CHINA ARE MANIFOLD AND WE APPROACH EACH OF THEM SOMETIMES IN SEPARATE SILOS BUT OFTEN AS PART OF A BROADER CONVERSATION, ASKING THEM TO ENGAGE IN TRADE AND CONDUCT AND HUMAN RIGHTS AS HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVITIES THAT ARE CONSISTENT WITH VALUES AMERICANS HOLD DEAR. MARIA: WHEN YOU CAME FROM YOUR EUROPE TRIP WHICH WAS AN IMPORTANT TRIP WHEN YOU WERE IN POLAND, WE TALKED ABOUT HOW YOU WERE GETTING PUSHBACK FROM EUROPEAN NATIONS, YOU BROKE NEWS ON THIS PROGRAM WHEN YOU SAID WE WOULD BE FORCED TO SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH THOSE COUNTRIES THAT ARE USING HUAWEI TELECOM. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON WHAT ITALY HAS DONE SIGNING A MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH CHINA. THAT MAY NOT INCLUDE TECHNOLOGY AND TELECOM. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON CHINA’S RELATIONSHIP WITH ITALY?>>THE ITALIAN FOREIGN MINISTRY, THE CELEBRATION OF NATO’S 70TH ANNIVERSARY AND WE HAD A CONVERSATION ABOUT THIS. EACH OF THE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES INCLUDING ITALY IS WORKING ITS WAY THROUGH THIS PROBLEM. THEY HAVE BECOME AWARE OF THE RISKS TO THEIR OWN PEOPLE NOT ONLY DIRECTLY FROM THEIR TECHNOLOGY BUT THE RISKS AMERICA WON’T BE ABLE TO WORK AS CLOSELY WITH THEM, SOMETHING THEY OFTEN COUNT ON AND DEPEND UPON. WE WILL SEE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES TAKE THIS THREAT VERY SERIOUSLY AND WE WILL MAKE REAL PROGRESS PROTECTING CITIZENS FROM THE THREAT OF CHINESE SURVEILLANCE STATE, CHINESE TECHNOLOGY INSIDE THESE NETWORKS. MARIA: THE WORLD WANTS TO GET INTO CHINA. 1.4 BILLION PEOPLE WANT TO SELL TO THOSE CONSUMERS BUT THERE ARE REAL RISKS HERE. IS THAT UNDERSTANDING, THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN ITALY AND CHINA DOES THAT EXCLUDE TELECOM? DOES THAT EXCLUDE TECHNOLOGY?>>I DON’T KNOW THE DETAILS OF THE AGREEMENT. WE WANT TO TRADE WITH CHINA TOO. I WANT TO THRIVE AND FLOURISH AND ENGAGE IN CONGRESS, WE HAVE A DEEP ECONOMIC RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM THAT ARE OF REAL VALUE TO AMERICAN CONSUMERS. THIS IS DONALD TRUMP’S TRADE NEGOTIATIONS. HE WANTS THAT TO BE FAIR AND RECIPROCAL. HE WANTS AMERICAN BUSINESSES TO HAVE A FAIR SHAKE WHEN WE DEAL WITH CHINA, NOT HAVE TO WORRY THAT IF THEY DO A DEAL, THEY WILL GIVE UP THE THE CORNER OF THEIR BUSINESS. MARIA: THE PRESIDENT MADE A BIG DEAL OF THE FENTANYL AGREEMENT WITH THE CHINESE, THAT THEY ARE GOING TO PROMISE THAT THEY ARE GOING TO CLASSIFY ALL CLASSES OF FENTANYL. LET’S WATCH THIS CLOSELY AND TELL ME WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE. I GUESS THERE WAS ONE ISSUE THAT FENTANYL IS USED IN A LOT OF THINGS INCLUDING FERTILIZER. HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE FENTANYL IS NOT COMING OVER THE BORDER? IS IN THIS THE SYNTHETIC PRECURSOR FOR OPIOIDS?>>IT IS. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE, THE COMMITMENT PRESIDENT 11 A MAC MADE WITH IMPORTANT. NOW CHINA NEEDS TO FOLLOW THROUGH. WE ARE SEEING ADMINISTRATIVE PROGRESS. WE HOPE THEY DELIVER ON THIS. THE PRESIDENT IS AT THE BORDER TODAY. ONE ELEMENT OF THE CRISIS DOWN THERE, WE SEE IT IN THE HUMAN SUFFERING DONALD TRUMP IS FOCUSED ON IT. IS ALSO FOCUSED ON NARCOTICS, DRUGS, GET ACROSS THE COUNTRY, FENTANYL FROM CHINA IS TRAFFICKED THROUGH MEXICO ACROSS THAT BORDER, ONE MORE REASON WE HAVE TO GET CONTROL OF THE CRISIS ON THE BORDER TODAY. MARIA: LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THE BORDER. THE PRESIDENT IS PLANNING TO CUT HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN AID TO THREE CENTRAL AMERICAN COUNTRIES AND RETALIATION FOR WHAT HE CALLS THE LACK OF HELP IN CUTTING THE FLOW OF MIGRANTS TO THE US BORDER. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THIS? EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA, HUNTER IS VERY WEAK COUNTRIES, FOREIGN ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS ARE CRITICAL FOR THEM. IS THIS GOING TO WORK? IS THIS ANOTHER THREAT? HOW SIGNIFICANT IS THIS?>>MANY OF THE ILLEGAL CROSSERS TODAY WHO ARE COMING ACROSS THE BORDER ILLEGALLY TODAY ARE COMING FROM THE THREE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES, GUATEMALA, HONDURAS AND EL SALVADOR. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THOSE COUNTRIES, STATE DEPARTMENT, DHS, TWO PIECES TO THEIR RECORD, WHAT IS ARE THEY WILLING TO HELP US, ARE THEY WILLING TO STOP PEOPLE FROM LEAVING THE COUNTRY, THE SECOND IS CAPACITY. WE’VE GIVEN THEM HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO CREATE THE CAPACITY FOR THEM TO DO SO. THEY HAVE NOT DEMONSTRATED THE WILL. THE WILLINGNESS TO ENGAGE IN STOPPING THESE CARAVANS FROM COMING ACROSS THE BORDER. OUR MISSION BY TELLING THEM THIS AID WILL BE CONDITIONED ON THE CHANGE IN THEIR BEHAVIOR, TO CONVINCE THEM THEY ARE TO HAVE THE WILL. THEY NEED TO WORK AT IT. WE WORK WITH THEM TO BUILD THEIR CAPACITY TO DO SO BUT WE HAVE NOT YET SEEN ENOUGH DEMONSTRATION OF THEIR COMMITMENT TO PREVENTING FOLKS FROM CROSSING INTO MEXICO AND MAKING THIS DANGEROUS TREK ACROSS MEXICO AND COMING UNLAWFULLY INTO THE UNITED STATES. MARIA: THERE ARE A LOT OF PUSHBACKS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION BECAUSE THE NUMBER OF APPREHENSIONS ARE SOARING. WHY HAS THE NUMBER INCREASED SO MUCH? HIS WORD GETTING OUT THE POROUS BORDERS, LET’S GO THERE NOW AND MAKE OUR FAMILIES LEAVE.>>IT IS ALWAYS ABOUT INCENTIVES. WHAT IS THE RISK, WHAT IS THE COST AND WHAT IS THE OPPORTUNITY WHEN THEY COME INTO THE UNITED STATES, WHAT IS THEIR OPPORTUNITY VERSUS WHAT THEY ARE FACING WHEREVER THEY LIVE WHETHER THAT IS MEXICO OR THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE. MEXICO TRIED TO KEEP THEM IN MEXICO BY PROVIDING FORMS OF VISAS, THAT CREATED A FURTHER INCENTIVE FOR THEM TO LEAVE GUATEMALA OR HONDURAS OR EL SALVADOR AND GO TO MEXICO AND THEN THEY REALIZED THEY WANTED TO MAKE THE TRANSIT INTO THE UNITED STATES. WE HAVE TO CONTROL THE BORDER, DONALD TRUMP WILL TALK ABOUT THE TOOLS AT OUR DISPOSAL. WHAT WE ALTERNATELY NEED IS CONGRESS TO CHANGE THE LAWS SO THAT WE CAN RETURN THESE INDIVIDUALS WHO AREN’T HERE PROPERLY UNDER ASYLUM BACK TO THE COUNTRY FROM WHICH THEY CAME. MARIA: THE PRESIDENT IS USING EVERY LEVERAGE POINT HE CAN, TALKING ABOUT TARIFFS ON CARS COMING OUT OF MEXICO. THOSE THAT CONTRADICT THE US MCA DEAL? WE HAD SENATOR O HERE WHO SAID I WILL SUPPORT THIS DEAL. I KNOW A LOT OF DEMOCRATS HAVE COME ON THE PROGRAM AND SAID WE WON’T SUPPORT, THE PRESIDENT IS TALKING ABOUT NEW TARIFFS ON CARS FROM MEXICO.>>WE ARE TRYING TO CREATE THE CONDITIONS AT THE BORDER THAT WILL KEEP AMERICANS SAFE, THAT WILL REASSERT AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER AND THE PRESIDENT IS USING EVERY TOOL IN HIS KIT. HE IS TRYING TO CONVINCE CONGRESS TO TAKE THIS THREAT SERIOUSLY. WE’VE SEEN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS FROM BOTH IDA THE AISLE ACKNOWLEDGE THE CRISIS, THAT WE ARE IN THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE COMING ACROSS THE BORDER EACH DAY WITH NARCOTICS AND TRAFFICKING AND PERSONS COMING ACROSS THE BORDER. ONCE THEY RECOGNIZE THE CRISIS WE NEED THEM TO CHANGE. THESE ARE SIMPLE CHANGES TO THE LAW. THEY COULD DO THEM TODAY. THEY NEED TO MOVE. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO STAND FOR THIS, DONALD TRUMP IS USING EVERY TOOL IN HIS KIT TO CHANGE THE INCENTIVES, CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR TO REDUCE THE RISKS IN THE UNITED STATES. MARIA: THE PRESIDENT IS USING THE TERROR THREAT QUITE EFFECTIVELY WITH THE CHINESE. DO YOU EXPECT THE PRESIDENT WILL LIKELY LEAD THOSE TARIFFS IN PLACE THAT ARE CURRENTLY THERE FOR CHINA?>>I THINK HE IS HOPING WHAT HE GETS IS THE REAL DEAL. UNENFORCEABLE DEAL NOT JUST ON THE AMOUNT OF TRADE TO MAKE IT FAIR AND RECIPROCAL AND IMPORTANT COMPONENT BUT TO PROTECT FROM ILLEGAL THEFT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, TECHNOLOGY, TRANSFER THAT IS FORCED. IF HE GETS THAT DEAL I’M CONFIDENT THE PRESIDENT WILL SAY THAT IS FAIR. OUR TARIFFS ARE EQUAL, WE ARE OPERATING IN A RECIPROCAL TRADING ARRANGEMENT, LET’S COMPETE AND HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN OUR COUNTRIES. MARIA: ON THE IP THEFT, THE WHITE HOUSE ECONOMIC ADVISOR LARRY KUDLOW SAID THE CHINA IS FINALLY ACKNOWLEDGING THE ISSUES AROUND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THEY ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE THEY WERE CONSISTENTLY DENYING THAT THEY WERE STEALING.>>IT IS A GOOD FIRST STEP. DOESN’T SEEM LIKE MUCH TO ACKNOWLEDGE SOMETHING THAT IS PATENTLY TRUE THE WE’VE KNOWN ABOUT FOR DECADES BUT NO PRESIDENT WAS PREPARED TO TAKE ON. THERE ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM THAT THIS IS HAPPENING IS A GOOD FIRST STEP BECAUSE’S AND THAT IF THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENING, WON’T ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS HARD TO FIX AND IMPOSSIBLE TO ENFORCE. THEY MADE REAL PROGRESS, STILL WORK TO DO. WHY THE PRESIDENT SAID WE DON’T HAVE TIME TO RESOLVE THIS BUT THE TEAM IS HARD AT WORK AND WE HOPE CHINA IS NEGOTIATING IN GOOD FAITH TO GET TO THE RESOLUTION. MARIA: HOW WORRIED ARE YOU ABOUT THE AGRICULTURAL SITUATION, THERE IS SWINE FLU GOING ON, THE FACT THAT CHINA PRODUCES AND CONSUMES 50% OF THE WORLD’S PORK AND 20% OF THEIR HOGS ARE DISEASED?>>IT IS A REAL CHALLENGE FOR CHINA. A REAL RISK THAT THEY WILL HAVE A SUPPLY SHORTFALL. WE HOPE FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO SELL IOWA HOGS AND HOGS FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. MARIA: THEY HAVE 100 MILLION DEAD HOGS TO DISPOSE OF. I WANT YOU TO STAY WITH US. YOU’VE BEEN DOING SUCH AN

AG Barr making major changes to immigration courts


MILLION CASES. JOINING ME NOW, NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL VICE PRESIDENT. ART, GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN. HAVE WE FINALLY FOUND A WAY AROUND SOME OF THESE ASYLUM RULES THAT HAVE BEEN SUCH A LURE FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION?>>WELL, I MEAN, THIS CERTAINLY IS SOMETHING HUGE THAT IS GOING TO HELP, AND I WILL ADD, NOT ONLY IS IT SOMETHING THAT HELPS STOP THESE ASYLUM CLAIMS, BUT PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT DETAINING THESE INDIVIDUALS LONGER, BUT WHAT IT IS GOING TO DO, IT IS GOING TO GIVE IMMIGRATION OFFICERS THE TIME TO TALK TO THESE PEOPLE AND DETERMINE WHO IS AN ACTUAL GUARDIAN OF THESE MINORS AND WHO IS NOT. DAVID: GREAT POINT.>>YOU HAVE GOT TO REMEMBER, THE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION IS BRINGING THESE KIDS KNOWING HEY WITHIN 20 DAYS, WE WILL BE RELEASED, SO WHAT’S HAPPENING IS THEY ARE USING THESE MINORS AS PAWNS FOR THEIR CRIMINAL GAME. WE DON’T KNOW IF SOME OF THESE KIDS ARE ACTUALLY RELATED TO THESE INDIVIDUALS. THIS GIVES IMMIGRATION THE EXTRA TIME SO WE CAN FIGURE OUT IF THESE ARE LEGITIMATE NOT ONLY LEGITIMATE ASYLUM CLAIMS, BUT WE NEED TO SEE IF THEY ARE LEGITIMATELY FAMILY MEMBERS, AND THAT IS IMPORTANT. I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYBODY WOULD AGAINST IT. TO BE AGAINST SOMETHING LIKE THIS MEANS YOU REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT THESE CHILDREN. DAVID: IT IS EXTRAORDINARY THAT THE LEFT HAS KIDNAPPED THE WHOLE IDEA OF COMPASSION. THEY SAY, YOU KNOW, THEY’RE THE ONLY ONES WITH THE COMPASSION, YET, I THINK IT IS VERY UNCOMPASSIONATE — IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF COMPASSION TO ALLOW CHILDREN TO BE PUT IN THE HAND OF SMUGGLERS, SMUGGLERS WHO ARE NOT RELATED TO THEM.>>DEFINITELY, IT HAS CREATED A MAGNET TO ALLOW THESE INDIVIDUALS, ONE, TO BREAK OUR LAWS, TWO, TO MAKE FALSE CLAIMS TO ASYLUM AND DEFINITELY IT’S PUT KIDS AT RISK. THANK GOD THAT WE HAVE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX, THAT ARE GOING FORWARD WITH THIS AND REALISTICALLY THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GET THE CREDIT THEY DESERVE, BUT NOT ONLY ARE THEY STOPPING FALSE ASYLUM, THEY ARE SAVING A LOT OF KIDS’ LIVES AND THAT’S IMPORTANT. DAVID: LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS GETTING INVOLVED IN THIS. WE HAVE A TERRIFIC ATTORNEY GENERAL RIGHT NOW WHO IS OPERATING ON SO MANY FRONTS, BUT ONE OF THOSE FRONTS IS IMMIGRATION. HE WANTS TO APPOINT TOUGHER IMMIGRATION JUDGES. APPARENTLY THERE HAVE BEEN JUDGES THAT HAVE BEEN PERFECTLY OKAY WITH A MILLION CASES BACKLOGGED IN THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, BUT THERE ARE OTHER JUDGES WHO ARE MUCH TOUGHER, WANT TO SEE THAT CLEARED OUT. WILL THAT HELP?>>I MEAN, I DON’T SEE IT AS THEM APPOINTING TOUGHER JUDGES. I SEE IT AS THEY ARE APPOINTING JUDGES THAT WILL BE EFFICIENT AND GET THE JOB DONE, AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT DEFINITELY NEEDS TO BE DONE. THE AMOUNT OF BACKLOGGED CASES IS JUST RIDICULOUS. AND I THINK THE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS HAVE EXPLOITED THAT, AND THEY’VE USED THAT TO THEIR ADVANTAGE, KNOWING FULLY WELL THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS WILL BE JUST CAUGHT AND LEASED IN THE COUNTRY — RELEASED IN THE COUNTRY. DAVID: OF COURSE THEY HAVE. BACK HOME AND WHAT INNOCENT U.S. CITIZENS ARE GOING THROUGH AS A RESULT OF SOME OF THIS CRISIS, NOT ONLY THOSE ON THE BORDER, BUT ONCE THE ILLEGALS SPREAD OUT AND DO NOT ACTUALLY GO BACK TO THE CORRIDORS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO AND SETTLE ELSEWHERE. A LOT OF THEM ARE CRIMINALS. NEW DATA FROM THE DOJ ON FEDERAL ARREST OVER ILLEGALS, OVER A 20 YEAR PERIOD, I WAS UNAWARE THAT 64% OF ALL FEDERAL ARRESTS WERE OF NON-U.S. CITIZENS. 64% WERE NON-U.S. CITIZENS.>>AND WHAT’S RIDICULOUS IS YOU HEAR INDIVIDUALS THAT THEY WANT TO MAKE UP FOR THAT, AND THEY SAY WELL, WE HAVE CRIMINALS IN THE UNITED STATES. I KNOW WE HAVE CRIMINALS HERE. BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN WE NEED TO START IMPORTING ANYMORE. WE’RE NOT AGAINST IMMIGRATION. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE CLEAR ABOUT THAT. WE’RE VERY PRO-IMMIGRATION. BUT WE’RE PRO-LEGAL IMMIGRATION. THERE’S A RIGHT WAY TO DO THINGS, AND THERE’S A WRONG WAY TO DO THINGS. DAVID: YOU DON’T WANT CRIMINALS COMING IN, AND YOU WANT PEOPLE COMING IN WHO ARE GOING TO BE WORKING HARD AND WHO WE NEED. THAT’S ANOTHER REASON WHY WE’VE GOT TO GET TO A MERIT-BASED SYSTEM, A SYSTEM WHERE WE’RE ABLE TO DECIDE WHO COMES IN AND WE DO HAVE JOBS AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH PARTICULAR SKILLS, TRY TO MATCH THOSE PEOPLE WITH THOSE JOB NEEDS THAT WE HAVE.>>THE SIMPLEST WAY I HAVE EXPLAINED IT TO PEOPLE, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE AISLE, OR THE LEFT SIDE OF THE AISLE, WHEN YOU ARE AT HOME, YOU WANT INDIVIDUALS TO KNOCK ON YOUR DOOR, AND YOU WANT TO MAKE THE DECISION ON WHO YOU ALLOW IN YOUR HOME, AND WHO YOU DON’T, YOU WANT INDIVIDUALS BREAKING THROUGH YOUR WINDOWS OR COMING IN UNANNOUNCED. THAT’S WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO. WE SHOULD HAVE IT AT OUR NATION’S BORDERS. DAVID: THAT’S A GOOD ANALYSIS. THE CBP WASN’T APPARENTLY COLLECTING DNA SAMPLES FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. THAT WAS A PROBLEM WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS WHO, WHO IS RELATED TO WHOM, WHETHER A PERSON HAS A BACKGROUND OR JUST GETTING THE DNA SAMPLES SO YOU CAN TRACK THAT PERSON IF THEY DO GET INVOLVED IN CRIMINAL ACTIVITY. IS THAT CHANGING NOW?>>THAT SHOULD BE CHANGING, AND HONESTLY, A LOT OF THESE CHANGES THAT ARE HAPPENING, YOU KNOW, I SOUND LIKE I’M CHEERLEADING, BUT THE HONEST TO GOODNESS TRUTH IS, WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT’S CARING ABOUT THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT’S CARING ABOUT AMERICAN CITIZENS AND MOVING FORWARD, I HOPE IT CONTINUES, BUT WE’RE VERY GRATEFUL RIGHT NOW. WE’RE IN A POSITION RIGHT NOW WHERE WE CAN’T TAKE A STEP BACK, AND AS I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES BEFORE, ILLEGAL IS NOT A RACE. STOP MAKING IT ABOUT RACE. DAVID: ABSOLUTELY.>>WE ALL NEED TO START BEHAVING LIKE AMERICANS. DAVID: ABSOLUTELY. WE’RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THAT LATER IN THE PROGRAM, BUT TO PUT THIS IN A RACIAL CONTEXT IS ABSURD.

Several states challenge Trump admin ‘public charge’ rule


SEVERAL STATES ARE TAKING LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THE TRUMP MINISTRATION PUBLIC CHARGE POLICY THAT WOULD DENY GREEN CARDS TO APPLICANTS THAT RECEIVE LONG-TERM PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. LET’S BRING IN FORMER OVERSIGHT COUNCIL AT THE DHS AND THE SENIOR SENIOR ADVISOR AT THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION MIKE HOWELL. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US. JUST TO BEGIN, HOW IMPACTFUL DO YOU THINK THE NEW POLICY WILL BE AS IT’S ROLLED OUT?>>I THINK THIS IS THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL ACTION OF THIS POLICY. AND PERHAPS THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL ACTION IN MANY DECADES FULL IN FOREST AND CARRIED OUT IT HAS MASSIVE IMPLICATIONS FOR THE INCOMING LEGAL POPULATION AND THOSE ALREADY IN THE COUNTRY.>>WE TALKED TO BEING FULLY ENFORCED WHAT YOU THINK THE LIKELIHOOD IS OF THAT. IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE AMOUNT OF ICE TO ACTUALLY REMOVE FOLKS. THEY HAVE MADE IT BIG POLICY OF THOSE TO LIMIT THE CAPACITY OF ICE TO THE EXTENT OF THOSE NUMBERS THEY ARE ABLE TO GET HIGHER. THERE IS MORE SPACE FOR FOLKS TO BE REMOVED.>>AGAINST THIS IN GENERAL. BROADLY FROM FOLKS THAT ARE RUNNING TO THE WHITE HOUSE. ADVOCACY ORGANIZATIONS AS WELL AS LAWSUITS. THERE IS SOME MULTITUDE OF STATES MORE THAN A DOZEN FILE INCLUDING ROBERT SANTOS. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION MESSAGE IS CLEAR IF YOU ARE WEALTHY YOU ARE BLOCK YOUR REPORT YOU ARE NOT. IT FORCES THEM TO SACRIFICE AS THEIR DREAM FOR FOOD OR ROOF OVER THEIR CHILDREN’S HEAD. I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO THE ACTUAL RULE. LIKE A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT’S HAPPENING. THERE IS STILL AN ALLOWANCE FOR ASYLUM. AND HUMANITARIAN CASES AND ASKING FOR IMMIGRANTS TO BE WEALTHY. TO NOT BE RELIANT ON THE LIMITED SOCIAL SERVICES OF THIS COMPANY ARE RESERVED FOR AMERICANS. SPEAK TO WHY YOU THINK THE ROLL OUT NOW. IT HAS ROLLED OUT A NUMBER OF POLICIES. SOME HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED BY THE COURTS. WHY NOW?>>IS A GREAT QUESTION. THIS IS THE DAY ONE PRIORITY AT DHS IN THE DIRECTION OF THE WANTED TO DO IT RIGHT. THEY PUT IT THROUGH A VERY ROBUST PROCESS. IT TOOK WELL OVER TWO YEARS TO GET WHERE WE ARE NOW BUT NOW WE ARE VERY SOLID LEGAL FOUNDATION AND CAN SURVIVE A MYRIAD OF CHALLENGES. IF YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE LOSSES THAT ARE COMING OUT OF CALIFORNIA AND THE FAR LEFT, THEY ARE REALLY MAKING A VALID LEGAL CLAIM THESE ARE POLICY OBJECTIONS. THE ADMINISTRATION IS A GOOD LEGAL FOOTING BECAUSE OF THE DELIVERANCE OF NATURE THAT THEY TOOK. BQ ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THEY TOOK. IS RELATED TO RACISM. BUT SPECIFICALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THIS POLICY NUMBER OF IMMIGRANT ORGANIZATIONS HAVE COME OUT AND PUSH BACK. AMONG THEM THE NATIONAL IMMIGRATION LAW CENTER. SHE WRITES IF YOU ARE NOT WHITE AND WEALTHY YOU ARE NO LONGER WEALTHY –DASH WELCOME WELCOME IN THIS COUNTRY. YOUR RESPONSE TO THIS IS SOMETHING TO RATE IMMIGRANTS. FROM OTHER COUNTRIES.>>I WOULD ENCOURAGE HER TO READ THE RULE. IT IS A RACIALLY NEUTRAL RULE IT DOES NOT CARE WHAT COLOR YOU ARE. IT APPLIES TO PEOPLE ACROSS THE BOARD. I’LL SHOW YOU, WHEREVER YOU WANT. IT IS RACIALLY NEUTRAL IS SIMPLY ASKING THE IMMIGRANTS WHO WISH TO COME INTO THIS

Appeals court sides with Trump administration on asylum rules


GRIFF: WELCOME BACK IT WAS A WIN FOR THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AS THE NINTH CIRCUIT OF APPEALS FOR NOW WILL ALLOW THE PRESIDENT WANTS ASYLUM POLICY THAT LIMITS REQUESTS TO MOVE FORWARD. THE RULING, HOWEVER, MAKING IT SO BORDER OFFICIALS IN CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA WILL NOT BE ABLE TO APPLY THE NEW RULE AGAINST ASYLUM SEEKERS WHILE AGENTS IN TEXAS AND NEW MEXICO CAN. ACTING CBP COMMISSIONER MARK MORGAN JOINS YOU NOW TO REACT. GOOD MORNING, MARK. I WANT TO ASK YOU HOW WILL THIS IMPACT THINGS? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU IN THE OVERALL GOAL OF TRYING TO SECURE OUR BORDER?>>WELL, I THINK WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS JUST NOW COMPLICATED THESE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS ARE. SO, SOMETIMES WE GET ENJOINED NATIONALLY AND THEN IN THIS CASE WE WERE INITIALLY AND THEN WE HAVE A PARTIAL VICTORY WHERE WE CAN INSTITUTE THIS PARTIALLY. BUT, IN THOSE STATES, TEXAS AND NEW MEXICO WHERE WE CAN INSTITUTE THIS NOW, THIS WILL BE A GAME CHANGER. IT WILL ALLOW US TO ABSOLUTELY INSTITUTE AN INITIATIVE NOW WE TRULY BELIEVE WILL HELP STEM THE FLOW OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. GRIFF: COMMISSIONER, IF YOU COULD CHOOSE WHAT TO ADD TO FURTHER HOPE YOU CONTROL THESE NUMBERS, WHAT WOULD YOU REQUEST? WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN?>>WELL, THE FIRST THING WE HAVE BEEN SAYING, GRIFF, YOU AND I HAVE TALKED ABOUT A LONG TIME IS WE ARE DOING GREAT STUFF WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO AND THE GOVERNMENT OF GUATEMALA. THEY STEPPED UP IN UNPRECEDENTED WAYS TO LOOK AT THIS AS A REGIONAL CRISIS. IN SOME WAYS IT’S A GAME CHANGER RIGHT NOW. AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT’S NOT A DURABLE, SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION. WE STILL NEED CONGRESS TO GET TOGETHER TO PASS MEANINGFUL LEGISLATION TO ADDRESS THE LOOPHOLES IN OUR SYSTEM. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY WE’RE GOING TO TRULY ADDRESS THIS CRISIS. GRIFF: WELL, SPEAKING OF ADDRESSING THINGS, COMMISSIONER I HAVE GOT TO ASK YOU. I TRAVEL A LOT. I DO NOT LIKE TRAVEL DELAYS THERE WERE INCIDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY FROM JFK HERE ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE WEST COAST, YOUR SYSTEM CRASHED CAUSING HUGE LINES, FRUSTRATED PASSENGERS FOR CHAOS, FOR IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS WHO WERE UNABLE TO PROCESS PEOPLE. CAN YOU SEE HERE IN NEW YORK. YOU CAN SEE THE UPSET PASSENGERS. WHAT HAPPENED?>>SO, IT’S FRUSTRATING. AND WE ARE JUST AS FRUSTRATED THAT HAPPENED. WHAT WE CAN SAY IS WE HAVE NO INDICATION THERE WAS ANY INTENTIONAL HACKING OR ANY CRIMINAL ACTIVITY INVOLVED IN THIS. THIS IS STRAIGHTFORWARD COMPUTER GLITCH. ON THE GOOD SIDE WE HAD OUR TECHNICAL RESPONSE TEAM THAT GOT ON IT IMMEDIATELY. THEY RESTORED THE PROGRAMS. GOT THEM BACK ONLINE ACROSS THE BOARD. WE ARE STILL INVESTIGATING EXACTLY WHAT THE ROOT CAUSE IS. WE ARE FRUSTRATED TOO BUT WE ARE GOING TO TRY TO GET BETTER TO MAKE SURE THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE. GRIFF: ONE MORE TOPIC, COMMISSIONER, I WANT TO GET. GOOGLE WEIGHING INTO POLITICS PRESSURING THE COMPANY TO NO LONGER WORK WITH ICE AND BORDER PATROL, YOUR REACTION, SIR?>>THAT KIND OF RHETORIC IS FRUSTRATING. IT’S ABSOLUTELY IRRESPONSIBLE. IT’S MISINFORMED. IT’S NOT FACTUAL AND A LOT OF THAT IS STRAIGHT OUT LIES. LET ME TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHAT THE TRUTH IS I JUST RETURNED FROM EL PASO WHERE I TOURED 175,000 SQUARE FOOT FACILITY TO HELP WITH OVERCROWDING. IT’S ONE OF SEVERAL ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST BORDER. WHAT THE TRUTH IS AND WHEN THEY WALK IN THERE, THEY ARE GOING TO SEE THAT THESE FAMILIES AND CHILDREN ARE RECEIVING THE HOT MEAL. THEY ARE GOING TO SEE CHILDREN SETTING IN FRONT OF FLAT SCREEN TVs WATCHING CARTOONS. THEY ARE GETTING MEDICAL ATTENTION. THAT’S THE TRUTH. THIS KIND OF RHETORIC IS IRRESPONSIBLE, RECKLESS AND IT’S A LIE. GRIFF: THANK YOU ACTING COMMISSIONER. I HAVE SEEN IT MYSELF. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

TRISH: YOU KNOW JUNE 10 IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. JUST A FEW DAYS TO SHOW WILLINGNESS TO STEP UP. AS YOU SAID, YOU KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE TARIFFS, NOBODY DOES. THEY ARE NOT GOOD FOR US AND OUR ECONOMY.
