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.

Brandon Judd slams dems for backing sanctuary cities


AND MURDERERS WHO SHOULDN’T EVEN BE IN THIS COUNTRY.>>>A CALIFORNIA SHERIFF WANTS IMMIGRATION REFORM CLAIMING SANCTUARY POLICIES ALLOWED A VIOLENT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT TO GO FREE AND THEN LATER SHOOT ONE OF HIS DEPUTIES. MERCED COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE SAYS GUADALUPE LOPEZ HERERA WAS IN THEIR CUSTODY IN JANUARY, BUT BECAUSE STATE LAWMAKERS LIMITED THEIR COOPERATION WITH I.C.E., DEPUTIES COULDN’T TURN HIM OVER FOR DEPORTATION. THE SHERIFF HAD THIS TO SAY.>>OUR IMMIGRATION POLICIES NEED TO BE REVAMPED BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO HAVE MORE OF THIS SITUATION HAPPEN. WE KNEW AHEAD OF TIME THAT THIS GUY’S POTENTIAL FOR VIOLENCE WAS THERE. LOU: JOINING ME NOW, THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL BRANDON JUDD. GOOD TO SEE YOU. THE SHERIFF MAKES A POINT. IT’S A POINT WE HAVE HEARD MADE OVER AND OVER AND OVER IN THIS COUNTRY. SANCTUARY CITIES, ARE WE EVER GOING TO GET IN CONTROL OF THOSE SANCTUARY CITIES?>>WELL, I THINK THE ANSWER TO THAT IS OBVIOUSLY YES, BUT IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOMEBODY THAT IS NOT THE TYPICAL POLITICIAN. IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOMEBODY FROM THE OUTSIDE WHO IS WILLING TO STEP UP AN CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO. — AND CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO. THAT IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THE AMERICAN PUBLIC VOTED SO HEAVILY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. SO MANY PEOPLE FLOCKED TO THE POLLS BECAUSE THEY WERE TIRED OF THE STATUS QUO. THEY WERE TIRED OF TYPICAL POLITICIANS TO LET CHINA MOVE INTO THE BAHAMAS. THEY WERE TIRED OF TYPICAL POLITICIANS THAT ALLOW ILLEGAL ALIENS TO CROSS OUR BORDERS JUST ABSOLUTELY UNFETTERED AND RELEASE INTO THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE TIRED OF POLITICIANS THAT ALLOW FOR THESE SANCTUARY CITIES. LOU: YEAH, YOU WOULD THINK, BUT APPARENTLY CALIFORNIA IS ONE OF THOSE PLACES THAT WILL HAVE — I DON’T KNOW — THEY MAY DEFEND THE SANCTUARY CITIES TO THE DEATH OUT THERE. IT IS PECULIAR TO ME THAT A STATE THAT RICH AND SEEMINGLY WITH CITIZENS THAT SMART CAN BE THIS DUMB. IT’S JUST EXTRAORDINARY WHAT THEY ARE ASKING THEIR PEOPLE TO PUT UP WITH. BUT I WANT TO TURN REAL QUICKLY TO MONTGOMERY COUNTY.>>CERTAINLY. LOU: BLAMING THE CONSERVATIVE MEDIA, THE WHITE HOUSE, TOP IMMIGRATION OFFICIAL, BY THE WAY, FOR DRAWING ATTENTION TO A NUMBER OF SEXUAL ASSAULTS, RAPES, BY ILLEGAL ALIENS, SEVEN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, ALL OF THEM FROM CENTRAL AMERICA, AND THIS ELRICH IS GOING NUTS BECAUSE THE MEDIA COVERED IT, AS IF HE WANTS THEM TO COVER UP THE CONSEQUENCES OF THESE FAILED BORDER POLICIES, THESE FAILED IMMIGRATION POLICIES AND SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES.>>YEAH NORMALLY WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE THE FACTS ON YOUR SIDE, WHAT YOU START DOING IS YOU START NAME CALLING. YOU START TOSSING OUT XENO PHOBIA. YOU START TOSSING OUT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS RACIST. THIS CITY COUNCILMAN, HE HAS NO LOGICAL — I’M SORRY, ARGUMENT TO WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON, BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS IF HE WAS ACTUALLY WILLING TO ACTUALLY DEBATE CUCCINELLI, HE WOULD LOSE MISERABLY WHICH IS THE REASON WHY HE WON’T. LOU: HE WON’T. THERE’S ANOTHER MATTER TOO, INTEGRITY AND COURAGE, YOU DON’T TALK LIKE HE DID AND COME UP AGAINST A GUY LIKE CUCCINELLI.>>CERTAINLY. LOU: IT’S PREPOSTEROUS, BUT THE ARGUMENT THEY POSSESS IS SO PREPOSTEROUS, YOU WOULD BE DELIGHTED THAT IF JUST ONCE ACCIDENT TALLY THEY WOULD ACCEPT A CHALLENGE LIKE CUCCINELLI. SUSAN COLLINS, MITT ROMNEY, MIKE LEE, BRANDON, QUESTION THE PRESIDENT’S AUTHORITY TO USE NEARLY 4 BILLION DOLLARS TO BUILD A BORDER WALL. NOW, ROMNEY AND COLLINS AND LEE FANCY THEMSELVES SMART FOLKS. HOW COULD SMART FOLKS NOT BE AWARE THAT EVERY ADMINISTRATION IN THE RECENT ERA HAS ACTUALLY HAD TO REPROGRAM FUNDING AND HAS DONE SO AND THAT UNDER A NATIONAL EMERGENCY, WHICH THIS PRESIDENT DECLARED, IN FEBRUARY, IT’S ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL TO RESPOND, AND THAT IS WHAT HE’S DOING.>>YEAH, THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS SO DISAPPOINTING TO ME, TO SEE REPUBLICANS FIGHTING AGAINST OTHER REPUBLICANS, INSTEAD OF STANDING BEHIND THIS ADMINISTRATION AND WORKING WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION, TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC. INSTEAD, ROMNEY AND LEE, SENATORS ROMNEY AND LEE, WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS THEY ARE LOOKING OUT FOR THEIR OWN STATE, RATHER THAN THE WELL BEING OF THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES. WE’VE GOT BEHIND — THE DEMOCRATS THEY ALL VOTE IN BLOCKS, YOU ALWAYS SEE THAT, YET REPUBLICANS ARE CONSTANTLY INFIGHTING WHICH IS WHY IT’S SO HARD TO GET — LOU: ROMNEY IS A BITTER LOSER FOR THE 2012 ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT. HE HATES THE FACT THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WON AND KEEPS WINNING AND NOW IS A HISTORIC PRESIDENT AND HE’S A HISTORIC LOSER. THAT KIND OF PETTY ENVY ON HIS PART IS NOT THE STUFF OF CHARACTER AND CERTAINLY IT APPEARS THE NATION AVOIDED A REAL DISASTER IF WE PUT THAT — ANOTHER PERSON OF HIS CHARACTER INTO THE WHITE HOUSE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AWFUL. MIKE LEE, HE SUPPORTS SENATE BILL 386. HE’S PUSHING THE BILL TO PROVIDE FAIRNESS FOR IMMIGRANTS RATHER THAN FOR AMERICAN WORKERS. HE WANTS MORE H 1B VISAS, DOUBLE THE AMOUNT. IT IS AN ASSAULT ON THE NATIONAL INTEREST, ON THE AMERICAN WORKER, OUR MIDDLE CLASS, AND SUSAN COLLINS, WHO I ABSOLUTELY COMPLIMENT, CONGRATULATE AND THANK FOR STANDING WITH JUSTICE KAVANAUGH AT HIS CONFIRMATION, BUT MY GOD, WHEN IN THE WORLD IS SHE GOING TO WISE UP AND FOLLOW THIS PRESIDENT?>>WELL, THE GOOD THING IS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO THE COMPLAINTS OF THESE THREE REPUBLICAN SENATORS. HE’S GOING TO PUSH FORWARD. HE’S GOING TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH HIS PROMISES, AND HE IS GOING TO SECURE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE’RE SEEING THAT RIGHT NOW. WE’RE SEEING HISTORIC DROPS IN ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION RIGHT NOW. LOU: RIGHT.>>IT IS STRICTLY BASED UPON PRESIDENT TRUMP NOT ACCEPTING NO FOR AN ANSWER, AND HE CONTINUES TO PUSH FORWARD, AND HE’S DOING IT BECAUSE HE CARES ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THAT’S WHY HE’S DOING IT. LOU: DO YOU THINK TONIGHT WOULD BE THE APPROPRIATE TIME TO INFORM THOSE THREE SENATORS, COLLINS AND ROMNEY AND LEE THAT THEY MIGHT LOOK TOWARD THE JUDGMENT OF THE SUPREME COURT, WHICH RULED THAT THE TRANSFERS OF SUCH MONEY AS THE PRESIDENT IS APPLYING TO THE BUILDING OF THAT WALL, TO RESPOND TO A NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND TO SECURE THE BORDER AS BEEN APPROVED BY THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES? DO YOU THINK THEY MIGHT HAVE TAKEN THAT INTO CONSIDERATION BEFORE THEY STARTED BRINGING THEIR NONSENSE DISLOYALLY SO? IT WAS A RHETORICAL QUESTION, BRANDON.>>THANK YOU. MIKE LEE WAS A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE IN UTAH. LOU: WAS HE REALLY?>>HE KNOWS ABOUT THAT. LOU: HE MUST JUST BE A — [INAUDIBLE].>>HE MIGHT BE, BUT AGAIN, IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO ACCEPT — LOU: I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT — TO BE CLEAR, THE LAST PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY THAT I WORRY ABOUT IS THE PRESIDENT STANDING FAST FOR PRINCIPLE, BECAUSE HE’S THE ONLY ONE I SEE IN THIS COUNTRY, RIGHT NOW, IN GOVERNMENT,

US needs to eliminate birthright citizenship: Andy Biggs


BULLET. THERE ARE SWEEPING CHANGES IN THE CONCEPT OF CITIZENS AND NOWN CITIZENS GIVING BIRTH INSIDE THE U.S. A REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN FROM ARIZONA THAT COULD SEE CHANGES BECAUSE OF THESE POLICY CHANGES. ANDY BIGGS. THESE CHANGES PRIMARILY ARE MET. I KNOW THEY AFFECT OUR CITIZENS OVERSEAS. BUT THE REAL THING IS THEY WANT TO STOP BIRTH TOURISM. THAT’S WHEN YOU HAVE PREGNANT VISITORS, NOT RESIDENTS. VISITORS COMING HERE TO HAVE KID SO THEY BECOME U.S. CITIZENS. I WANT TO PUT UP THE RULE CHANGE. WE HIGHLIGHTED IT. A U.S. CITIZEN BORN IN THE U.S. GENERALLY MEETS THE RESIDENTS’ REQUIREMENT AS LONG AS HE OR SHE CAN PRESENT EVIDENCE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT HIS OR HER MOTHER WAS NOT MERELY TRANSITING THROUGH OR VISITING THE U.S. AT THE TIME OF HIS OR HERB THE TIME OF HIS -R HERB THE TIME OF HIS — HERB THE TIME OF HIS — HISB THE TIME OF HIS — HIS OR HER BIRTH. THAT MAY CHANGE BIRTH TOURISM.>>IT MIGHT GET TO SOME BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP. IT’S BECOME AN INDUSTRY FOR SOME PLACES TO SEND MOTHERS, EXPECTANT MOTHERS HERE AND THEY STAY HERE FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AT A TIME. THAT DEFINITION OF WHAT IS TRANSIT. THAT IS GOING TO BE CRITICAL IN DETERMINING HOW EXTENSIVE THIS CHANGE IS. I’M NOT SURE IT’S AS GREAT AS MOST OF PEOPLE ARE THINKING. DAVID: ONE WORD CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. EXPLAIN HOW THAT HAPPENS.>>TRANSIT. IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY OF CALIFORNIA, THERE WAS A LADY THAT WOULD COME IN A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE HER BABY WAS DUE. SHE WOULD HAVE THAT BABY THEN RETURN TO MEXICO. THAT BABY HAD RECEIVED BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP. SOME MIGHT SAY THAT’S JUST TRANSIT, BUT ON THERS MAY SEE YOU IT’S FLYING IN AND HAVING THE BABY MOVING FROM AN AIRPORT TO A HOSPITAL TO HAVE THE BABY. DAVID: I’M LOOKING HERE. IT LOOKS AS LONG AS HE OR SHE CAN PRESENT EVIDENCE THAT HIS OR HER MOTHER WAS NOT ONLY VISITING THE U.S. MAYBE THEY CAN TWEAK IT MORE AND MAKE IT AIRTIGHT. BUT YOU HAVE GOT TO APPLAUD THE DIRECTION IN WHICH IT IS GOING, NO?>>BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP HAS BEEN A DRAW IN THE UNITED STATES AND WE ARE ONE OF THE FEW COUNTRIES THAT HAVE IT YET. WE NEED TO ELIMINATE BIRTHRIGHT CERTAIN SEASONSHIP. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE COME HERE LEGALLY. AND THEY CAN OBTAIN CITIZENSHIP. WE ARE A COUNTRY THAT WELCOMES LEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO COME IN HERE. IT’S THE OTHER ISSUE WE SEE A LOT OF THAT I THINK THEY ARE TRYING TO GET AT HERE. DAVID: I’M LOOKING AT THE CHANGE IN THE ASYLUM RULES AND THE NEW WALLS AND FORTIFICATION OF THE WALLS GOING UP. I’M SEEING SIGNIFICANT CHANGES AND FOLLOW THROUGH ON THE PROMISES PRESIDENT TRUMP MADE TO SECURE OUR BORDER.>>THE PRESIDENT WANTS A SECURE BORDER. HE UNDERSTANDS. IT’S LIKE WE HAVE A LEAK IF OUR HOUSE. WE SHOULDN’T BE PUTTING UP DRYWALL AND PAINT UNTIL WE FIX THE LEAK. THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN A BIG HELP LATELY. AND THE M CAN PV PROGRAM HAS BEEN A DETERRENT. IF WE WERE CERTAIN TO EVEN 40s REMOVAL OF NEARLY A MILLION PEOPLE WITH REMOVAL ORDERS, YOU WOULD SEE I THINK AN ALMOST STAND STILL OF PEOPLE TRYING TO GET INTO THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY. DAVID: I WANT TO GO TO ANOTHER STORY. YOUR JUDICIARY COLLEAGUE JERRY NADLER IS IN HOT WATER BECAUSE A LEGAL FILING MADE BY DEMOCRATS MONDAY SAYING THEIR IMPEACHMENT PROBE STARTED MARCH 4. BUT THE MUELLER REPORT DIDN’T GET TO A.G. BAR UNTIL MARCH 22 AND IT WASN’T RELEASED UNTIL APRIL 18. DID THE DEMOCRATS DECIDE TRUMP WAS WORTHY OF IMPEACHMENT WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE OF THAT?>>JERRY NADLER SINCE HE BECAME CHAIRMAN, I THINK THAT WAS HIS GOAL. BUT HE NEVER TOOK ANY OFFICIAL POSITION. I THINK THERE IS A PROBLEM FILING WITH THE COURT SAYING WE HAVE THIS OFFICIAL INVESTIGATION, A SERIOUS INVESTIGATION GOING ON. THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING BUT HARASS THE PRESIDENT WITH THEIR HEARINGS. BUT HE DID NOTHING ACCORDING TO THE RULES OF THE HOUSE AND THE CONSTITUTION TO ACTUALLY GO WITH IMPEACHMENT. IF YOU WANT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, START THE PROCEDURE. DAVID: I’M WONDERING, YOU ARE ON THAT COMMITTEE. ARE YOU GOING TO START A PROCEDURE TO SANCTION YOUR CHAIRMAN FOR SOME PART OF THIS?>>YOU KNOW, WE MAY NEED TO LOOK INTO THAT. WHAT HAPPENED IS HE SENT TWO CONFLICT MESSAGES. ONE THING WE KNOW FOR SURE IS THEY WANT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT. BUT THEY WANT TO HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. THEY DON’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING OFFICIAL BECAUSE IT’S GROSSLY AND HIGHLY UNPOPULAR WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. DAVID: WHAT KIND OF SANCTION WOULD YOU ENVISION?>>I THINK WE WOULD SAY IT WOULD BE A CENSURE-TYPE THING SAYING YOU DID SOMETHING WRONG. ADMIT IT.

San Diego homeless population drops to 6 percent in 2019


STUART: THERE IS A HOMELESS PROBLEM. HOMELESSNESS PROBLEM, IN CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES, SAN FRANCISCO. THEY HAVE SEEN THEIR HOMELESS POPULATION GROW EXPONENTIALLY RECENTLY. BUT IN SAN DIEGO, IT’S A DIFFERENT STORY. WE HAVE THE MAYOR OF SAN DIEGO WITH US, KEVIN FAULCONER. YOUR HONOR, WELCOME TO THE SHOW. GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>GOOD MORNING. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. STUART: YOU HAVE BEEN SAYING, I BELIEVE, THAT THE HOMELESS POPULATION IS DOWN, I THINK 6% IN YOUR CITY YEAR ON YEAR. TELL US HOW YOU DID THAT.>>WELL, IT’S DOWN 6% COUNTY-WIDE. IT REALLY IS ABOUT CHALLENGING THE BUREAUCRACIES THAT HAVE BEEN ENTRENCHED IN THE STATUS QUO AND DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY. ONE OF THE THINGS WE’RE DOING IN SAN DIEGO THAT I THINK IS REALLY HAVING A DRAMATIC EFFECT OF GETTING PEOPLE OFF THE STREET IS WE HAVE ESTABLISHED BRIDGE SHELTERS WITH HELP AND WRAP-AROUND SERVICES, A CENTER THAT’S HELPING CLEAN UP OUR STREETS AND SIDEWALKS AND REALLY, A SENSE OF AN OVERALL ATTITUDE THAT SAYS A SIDEWALK, A TARP OR A RIVER BED IS NO PLACE FOR A HOME. STUART: THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO PICK UP ON. I WOULD IMAGINE THAT THE ACLU, AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION, WOULD HAVE GIVEN YOU A VERY HARD TIME ABOUT DENYING PEOPLE THEIR RIGHT TO SLEEP AND STAY ON THE STREET. DID THEY GIVE YOU A HARD TIME?>>YOU ARE ALWAYS GOING TO GET FOLKS THAT WANT TO PUSH BACK BUT I SAY TO SOME OF THOSE FOLKS, WE ARE GIVING PEOPLE HELP AND SUPPORT. THAT’S WHAT THESE BRIDGE SHELTERS ARE ALL ABOUT. WE ARE ALSO GOING TO ENFORCE OUR QUALITY OF LIFE FOR OUR HOUSES AND OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. YOU WANT PEOPLE TO GET OFF THE STREET. WE NEED PEOPLE TO GET OFF THE STREET, PARTICULARLY THOSE THAT HAVE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES OR SUBSTANCE ABUSE. SO PROVIDING THE HELP, THE WRAPAROUND SERVICES IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT BUT ALSO, AS I SAID BEFORE, THE ENFORCEMENT THAT SAYS THIS IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO ACCEPT AND THIS IS WHAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO ACCEPT. STUART: HOW MUCH DID IT COST? CAN YOU GIVE ME KIND OF A BUDGETARY NUMBER ON HOW MUCH IT COST TO GET YOUR HOMELESS POPULATION DOWN?>>WELL, I TELL YOU, WE ARE SPENDING MORE MONEY THAN WE EVER HAVE BECAUSE WE NEED TO. WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO IN SAN DIEGO. STUART: ARE WE TALKING TENS OF MILLIONS, SIR? I HAVE TO ASK.>>YES, WE ARE INDEED, STUART. I WILL TELL YOU, IT’S MONEY WELL SPENT. I JUST SIGNED OUR BUDGET YESTERDAY, OVER $3 BILLION IN SAN DIEGO, AND ONE LINE ITEM ALONE FOR HELPING TO CLEAN UP OUR SIDEWALKS, REMOVE TRASH, IS $10 MILLION. I FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THIS. I FEEL PASSIONATELY ABOUT THIS. THAT’S HOW YOU HAVE TO RUN A MAJOR AMERICAN CITY. WE CARE ABOUT THE CLEANLINESS, WE CARE ABOUT OUR ENVIRONMENT AND WE CARE ABOUT GETTING PEOPLE OFF THE STREET AND ENSURING THAT THAT’S HAPPENING. STUART: I KNOW SAN DIEGO VERY WELL. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL CITY. IT’S ALWAYS 72 DEGREES AND SUNNY. IF I’M GOING TO BE HOMELESS I’M COMING TO YOU. SERIOUS QUESTION. CALIFORNIA IS A SANCTUARY STATE. YOU WELCOME ILLEGALS INTO THE STATE. HOW DOES THAT — HOW DO YOU BALANCE THAT WHEN YOU’VE GOT A HOMELESSNESS PROBLEM? I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT ILLEGALS ADD TO IT.>>WELL, THERE’S A WHOLE HOST OF POLICIES THAT UNFORTUNATELY HAPPENED AT THE STATE LEVEL BUT WHAT I TRY TO DO IS FOCUS ON WHAT WE NEED TO BE DOING IN SAN DIEGO. AGAIN, YOU HAVE TO HAVE POLITICAL WILL. YOU HAVE TO SAY HERE’S WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO. STUART: ARE YOU A SANCTUARY CITY?>>WE NEVER HAVE BEEN. NO. STUART: WHY NOT?>>WE TAKE THE BALANCED APPROACH THAT I THOUGHT WAS RIGHT FOR SAN DIEGO AND RIGHT FOR THE STATE. STUART: YOU ARE OFF BASE WITH THE REST OF THE STATE. EVERYWHERE ELSE IS SANCTUARY CITY.>>WELL, I THINK WE’RE DOING THE RIGHT THING. STUART: ARE YOU DOING THE RIGHT THING?>>WE ARE HELPING PEOPLE, WE ARE HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR OUR ENTIRE CITY. WE SEE THE RESULTS THAT IT’S WORKING. STUART: ARE YOU A REPUBLICAN?>>I AM INDEED. STUART: THERE YOU GO. WHY DIDN’T YOU SAY THAT FROM THE GET-GO? YOUR HONOR, COME ON.>>WELL, LOOK, I APPRECIATE THAT. BUT SOME OF THESE THINGS I THINK ARE COMMON SENSE. IT’S NOT ABOUT PARTISANSHIP. I’M TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND SHOW IN REAL RESULTS AND I THINK PEOPLE ARE REALIZING THAT. AS I SAID BEFORE, WE HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO BUT WE ARE HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. STUART: YOU’VE GOT A LOVELY CITY. I’M GLAD YOU’RE PRESERVING IT THAT WAY. IT WAS AN HONOR TO HAVE YOU ON

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.

DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen resigned. Did Trump ask her to?


S&L DON’T MISS A MOMENT IT HAVE IT THIS MORNING FIRST OUR TOP STORY DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY KYRSTEN NEIL SON REPLACED BY U.S. CUSTOM BORDER PATROL COMMISSIONER KEVIN, PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED ABOUT IT HE SAID THIS, MORE APPREHENSIONS AND ATURE AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER THAT IN MANY YEARS BOARLD PATROL AMAZING. COUNTRY IS FULL. SYSTEM HAS BEEN BROKEN FOR MANY YEARS DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS MUST AGREE TO FIX LOOPHOLES. NO OPEN BORDERS, CRIMES AND DRUG, WILL CLOSE SOUTHERN BORDER IF NECESSARY, WRITES THE PRESIDENT. MEXICO MUST APPREHEND ALL ILLEGAL AND NOT LET THEM MAKE A LARGE MARCH UP TO UNITED STATES WE WILL HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE THAN TO CLOSE THE BORDER AND/OR INSTITUTE TARIFFS OUR COUNTRY IS FULL. WRITES THE PRESIDENT JOINING US NOW FOX NEWS ANALYST ANDREW NAPOLITANO AND GOOD TO SEE YOU THIS MORNING. LOOK I KNOW THAT NEIL SON WAS ON THE OUTS WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN THAT CASE FOR THE LAST SIX MONTHS OR SO. BUT FOR HER TO STEP DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF WHAT REALLY DOES LOOK LIKE A MASSIVE CHAOS SIGHS AND CRISIS — THAT IS A HEAD SCRATCHER TO ME.>>SHE TOLD HER THEY HAVE TO LEAVE ON THE SPOT.>>NOW? I AGREE WITH YOU. IF THE SITUATION IS AS BAD AS THE REPORTS WE’VE BEEN GETTING SOME FROM OUR COLLEAGUES WHO HAVE BEEN DOWN THERE AND YOUR HUSBAND MAY KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS THAN WE DO. RACHEL, IT’S A CRITICAL TIME AND I WOULDN’T HAVE ASKED HER TO GO BUT HE HAS HER OWN PLANS HE WITHDREW NODGES OF WHAT IS A STRONG PERSON VIDEO IT WASN’T TOUGH ENOUGH.>>I THINK THAT WAS PART IT HAVE AND THE VIDEO IN THAT JOB.>>RIGHT. BUT I THINK IT’S A — AN INAPPROPRIATE TIME FOR HIM TO FIRE BUT HE KNOWS MORE, MORE THAN I CAN POSSIBLY KNOW ABOUT THIS, AND YOU SERVE WHEN YOU’RE IN THE CABINET, YOU SERVE WITH THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT. YOU GO TO THE OVAL OFFICE AND SUNDAY NIGHT EXPECTING THE PLAN THAT NEXT FOUR WEEKS YOU’RE WORKING YOU LEAVE YOU’RE OUT OF A JOB THAT’S WHAT HAD THE — WHAT IT’S LIKE.>>WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS? BECAUSE BEEN RUMORED TO — THAT HE WANTED HER OUT, SIX, EIGHT MONTHS AGO. WHAT I FIND INTERESTING IS WHY NOW IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CRISIS BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY WILL NOT — WHY TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF CONGRESS NOW BY FIRING HER OR LETTING HER GO ORP MOVING HER ON IT IMPLIES THERE’S SOMETHING THAT DHS SECRETARY CAN DO TO SOLVE THIS CRISIS OTHER THAN WHAT SHE’S ALREADY DOING. THE PROBLEM IS IN CONGRESS . THE PROBLEM ARE THE ASYLUM LAWS THAT NEED TO BE CHANGED.>>RIGHT. IT IS NOT HER. I WOULD HAVE KEPT HER THERE AS A VERY, VERY STRONG ADVOCATE FOR TYPE OF LEGISLATIVE CHANGES THAT PRESIDENT WANTS. BUT HE WANTS SOMEBODY ELSE ON THAT JOB AND HIS PREROGATIVE.>>AND PRESIDENT SAID LAST WEEK, THAT HE WAS GOING TO TRY THAT HE’S GOING GIVE MEXICO TIME TO STOP THE FLOW OF MIGRANT AND DRUGS INTO THE COUNTRY THEN IT WOULD BE CAR TARIFFS THEN IT WOULD BE CLOSING THE BORDER. BUT I WOULD ADD THIS. YOU MAC THAT ECONOMY WORSE, THAT ACTUALLY INCREASES THE PROBLEM OF PEOPLE TROYING TO GET TO THE UNITED STATES.>>S THAT THE ARGUMENT NOT SURE OF HIS NAME MACK THAT’S THE ARGUMENT HE MADE UNDEROATH BEFORE CONGRESS. WHEN HE SAID WE NEED TO CONTINUE FOREIGN AID TO THESE COUNTRIES SO THAT THERE’S SOME AT LEAST A SAFETY NET AND ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL SAFETY NET DOWN THERE AND LESS INCENTIVE TO COME NORTH SO HE’S ON RECORD UNDER OATH DISAGREEING WITH PRESIDENT SAKE ARGUMENT THAT DAGEN WAS JUST MAKING.>>I THINK PRESIDENT IS BACKING AWAY FROM THAT THREAT TO CLOSE THE BORDER. HE’S HEARD FROM ENOUGH PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND I THINK, THAT — THE MASSIVE IMPACT.>>JOHN AND TED CRUZ SAID TO HIM, YOU KNOW TWO OF THE REPORT RSERS TWO OF THE CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS YOU CAN’T DO THAT. IT WOULD BE TOO HARMFUL TO THE ECONOMY . THIS WOULD COST HUNDRED OF THOUSANDS MAYBE MILLIONS OF AMERICAN JOBS.>>THAT’S WHAT HE WAS DOING WHEN HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WELL I’LL GIVE THEM TIME AND MEXICO TIME TO STOP THE FLOW OF DRUGS AND MIGRANTS THEN I AM USE TARIFFS BECAUSE HE IS IN HIS OWN WORDS TARIFF MAN. WHETHER THAT WOULD WORK OR NOT BUT THAT WAS A WAY TO BACK OFF IMMEDIATE CLOSURE OF THE BODE FOR SURE.>>WE HAVE A BACKUP OVER WEEKEND OF TRUCKS FOR MILES BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO HAVE BORDER AGENTS TO PROCESS THE TRUCKS COMING IN. THAT’S BECAUSE THIS –>>CENTER IS BUSTED. STRESS IN THE SYSTEM RIGHT THERE. WHAT DOES THAT DO IT? RAISE THE PRICE BECAUSE THEY CAN’T GET THERE IN A TIMELY MANNER.>>THAT HAS IMPACT ON AMERICA’S ECONOMY.>>BUT UPSIDE WHAT HE HAS DONE BY MAKING THE THREAT IS HE’S BROUGHT ATTENTION. YOU SHOULD INTERVIEW THE DEMOCRAT YESTERDAY WHERE WAS SHE FROM I COULDN’T, MICHIGAN WHO SAID THIS WAS THE CRISIS, WE NEED A WALL, AT LEAST IN SOME AREAS SO YOU’RE SEEING CNN EVEN AND DIFFERENT MEMBERS ON THE DEMOCRAT SIDE FINALLY AGREEING THAT THIS ISN’T MANUFACTURED.>>WOW. IT IS TRUE. YEAH. CERTAINLY LOOKS LIKE A CRISIS YOU KNOW IT IS FUNNY TO SEE LIKE CNN GO DOWN THERE LIKE IN THEIR FACES. IN TERMS OF HOW DANGEROUS IT APPEARS.>>YEAH. AND SAYING LIKE IT IS NO BIG DEAL UP UNTIL RECENTLY.>>RIGHT. RIGHT. ME ASK YOU COMPANY PAYING 12 MILLION AS PART OF A SETTLEMENT FOR SHARING CUSTOMER INFORMATION WITH U.S. IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOM ENFORCEMENT I.C.E.>>I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THIS UNTIL YOUR PRODUCERS ASKED ME TO LOOK AT IT BECAUSE A CASE WAS SETTLED BUT THIS WAS ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON. SUING MOTEL 6 IN BEHALF OF 80,000 CUSTOMERS MANY OF THEM — AND NATURAL BORN AS THES SOME OF THEM IMMIGRANTS SO MUCH THEM UNLAWFULLY PRESENT BUT THE GOVERNMENT COME KNOCKING ON THE DOOR THEY HAVE TO HAVE A WARRANT AND CAN’T GIVE PRIVATE PERSONAL INFORMATION OUT ABOUT PEOPLE WITHOUT THAT WARRANT. WARRANT MEANS THAT A JUDGE HAS LOOKED AT THE EVIDENCE AND HAS DECIDED IT IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO HAVE THIS EVIDENCE THAN THAT PRIVACY BE RETAINED AND THAT THE BURDEN IS ON THE — INTELLECTUAL RESUME NATION OF THE JUDGE OPPOSED TO — HEY CAN YOU GIVE US THIS STUFF WHICH IS APPARENTLY WHAT’S BEEN GOING ON SO I’M GLAD THE LAW — USUALLY I DON’T LIKE THESE LAWSUITS I’M GLAD LAWSUIT WAS BROUGHT, AND I THINK THAT RIGHT THING WAS DONE. NOW WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE 12 MILLION? I DON’T THINK THEY’RE GOING TO FIND THOSE 80,000 PEOPLE I THINK THAT’S GOING TO BE COUGHERS OF THE TREASURY OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON. SO IT WAS A TRANSFER FROM ONE TAXPAYER SHEET, I.C.E. TO ANOTHER TAXPAYER SHEET, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON.>>I REPORTED YESTERDAY THAT DEVIN MUÑIZ HAS EIGHT CRIMINAL REFERRALS THIS IS WEEK WHAT COMES OUT OF THAT? I DON’T KNOW SOMETIMES THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL ALWAYS LOOK AT THEM, AND DIFFERENCE TO THE SOURCE, A MEMBER OF CONGRESS.>>EVEN LENGTED OFFICIALS SENDS YOU EIGHT REFERRALS YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.>>YES. IT DOESN’T ALWAYS MEAN THEY’RE PROSECUTED CASE OF ONE OF THEM INVESTIGATING IN THE CAVE AND INVESTIGATING HIM ALREADY.>>BUT HE’S BEING CRIMINALLY INVESTIGATED THEY HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THAT PUBLICLY AND CASE OF THE OTHERS I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IF THERE ISN’T ALREADY AN INVESTIGATION BUT THERE’S SO MUCH CONTROVERSY AND HARDLY HEARD OF THEM TWO YEARS AGO.>>PETER STRZOK, PAIGE STRZOK MCCABE BAKER EVEN COMBNY. I WOULD BE SURPRISED THERE’S NOT SOME PRELIMINARY TYPE OF SCRUTINY GOING ON.>>AND THEN THERE’S THIS FEDERAL JUDGE WEIGHING IN ON CVS ETNA DEAL HEAR FROM WITNESSES AGAINST THE ACQUISITION OF THE INSURANCE GIANTS.>>THIS IS WRONG AND THE JUDGE IS FRIEND OF MINE AND I’M A FAN OF HIS AND FAN OF HIS BECAUSE HE’S FEARLESS AND OFTEN DOES RIGHT THINGS THIS WAS THE JUDGE THAT APPROVED THE AT&T TIME WARNER MERGER THIS WAS SUGGESTED APPROVED CVS ETNA AND GETTING COMPLAINT FROM AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION. THEY WANT THEIR LOBBYIST INTO A COURTROOM TO TESTIFY. WHO CARES WHAT THE AMA THINKS. IS THIS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY? DOES THIS VIOLATE THE ANTITRUST LAWS? IT DOES NOT VIOLATE THE ANTITRUST LAW THAT’S HORIZONTAL IT DOES NOT IMPEDE COMPETITION AND ENHANCES COMPETITION AND LOWERSES PRICES THE TYPE OF MENTIONER THAT JUDGE SHOULD APPROVE. SMG IT IS A CONSUMMATED TRANSACTION. ALREADY DONE SO WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN NOW? WHY TAKING LIVE TESTIMONY FROM PEOPLE THAT DON’T EVEN HAVE A STAKE IN IT, IT HAS ALMOST LIKE HE’S OPENED UP A COURTROOM TO ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO WALK IN AND SAY WHY SHOULDN’T I DO THIS AND LET THEM SAY IT. PREDICTION THIS WILL BE APPROVED.

Ben Carson defends removing illegal immigrants from public housing


DOW INDUSTRIALS. WE’RE DOWN 50 POINTS.>>>NOW THIS, HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY, BEN CARSON, WHOA, HE WAS GRILLED, HE WAS GOADED I SHOULD SAY ON THE HILL YESTERDAY. WATCH THIS.>>OMWI.>>AMWAY?>>COME ON, MR. SECRETARY, I ASKED YOU THIS LAST YEAR. YOU ASKED ME TO BE NICE TO YOU AND YOU TURNED TO YOUR STAFF. OMWE. YOU HAVE A OMWE DIRECTOR. WE WROTE YOU A LETTER ABOUT IT AND, OMWE. OFFICE OF MINORITY WOMEN AND INCLUSION. STUART: HOLD ON A SECOND. WE’LL GET TO THE SECRETARY IN A MOMENT. THAT WASN’T ALL FROM YESTERDAY. CHECK OUT THIS EXCHANGE.>>I WOULD ALSO LIKE YOU TO GET BACK TO ME IF YOU DON’T MIND TO EXPLAIN THE DISPARITY IN REO RATES. DO YOU KNOW WHAT AN REO IS?>>AN OREO?>>NOT AN OREO. REO. R-EO.>>REAL ESTATE.>>WHAT DOES O STAND FOR. THAT IS WHEN A PROPERTY GOES INTO FORECLOSURE. STUART: BEN CARSON WAS BEFORE HE WENT INTO POLITICS ONE OF IF NOT THE BEST BRAIN SURGEON IN THE WORLD. AND THEY WERE TALKING DOWN TO HIM. BEN CARSON HIMSELF IS WITH US NOW. WOULD YOU RESPOND TO ALL OF THIS, PLEASE SIR?>>YES. IT WAS, FIRST OF ALL, IT WAS 3 1/2 HOURS OF TESTIMONY. SO YOU CAN SEE THAT SOME OF THE NETWORKS ARE ONLY INTERESTED THOSE KINDS OF SOUND BITES THAT THEY CAN USE TO RIDICULE. YOU KNOW THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS, I WAS HAVING DIFFICULTY HEARING HER. OF COURSE I’M VERY FAMILIAR WITH FORECLOSED PROPERTIES. AND WITH REOs. I HAVE READ EXTENSIVELY ABOUT THEM. NEW ABOUT THEM, EVEN AS A TEENAGER. THERE WAS A LOT OF BLIGHTED AREAS IN DETROIT WHERE I GREW UP BUT WHAT IS INTERESTING, YOU KNOW, THAT WE, WHEN A FAMILY GETS INTO A PROBLEM WITH THEIR MORTGAGE AND IT IS BACKED BY OUR AGENCY BE WE GO THROUGH A LOT OF PROCEDURES WITH THE BANKS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY DON’T GET FORECLOSED UPON. IN A FEW CASES WHERE THEY DO, OBVIOUSLY WE’RE ABLE TO SELL THOSE PROPERTIES VERY QUICKLY. AND THE, REO PORTFOLIO, JUST OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS, HAS DRAMATICALLY DECREASED BY TENFOLD. YOU KNOW, 65,000 DOWN TO 6500. SO I SUSPECT WHEN KATY PORTER WAS AN EXPERT IN THIS AREA THINGS WERE VERY DIFFERENT. THAT IS WHY I INVITED HER TO SPEAK WITH OUR STAFF THAT DEALS WITH THESE SO THEY CAN BRING HER UP TO DATE. MAYBE SHE WOULD THEN BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON.>>I THINK THEY WERE HAVING A GO AT YOU, MR. SECRETARY. ALSO AT THE HEARING YESTERDAYER ACCUSED OF FAVORING AMERICANS OVER ILLEGALS IN PUBLIC HOUSING. I JUST WANT THE AUDIENCE TO SEE THIS. ROLL THAT TAPE PLEASE.>>THE D IN HUD DOES NOT STAND FOR DEPORTATION. I’M AFRAID THAT A RECENT PROPOSAL OF YOURS WILL BRING NOTHING BUT DESPAIR. I FIND IT DESPICABLE, THIS IS A HORRIBLE PLAN. YOU WILL RIP APART FAMILIES AND BE THROWING CHILDREN ON TO THE STREET. WHAT IS YOUR PLAN TO TAKE CARE OF THEM?>>IF YOU READ THE RULE CAREFULLY YOU WILL SEE THAT IT PROVIDES A SIX-MONTH DEFERRAL ON REQUEST IF THEY HAVE NOT FOUND ANOTHER PLACE TO LIVE. AND THAT CAN BE RENEWED TWO TIMES FOR A TOTAL OF 18 MONTH, WHICH IS PLENTY OF TIME FOR CONGRESS TO ENGAGE IN COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM. STUART: AGAIN, MR. SECRETARY, YOUR RESPONSE?>>WELL, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE OBLIGATION TO FOLLOW THE LAW AND, SECTION 214 OF THE HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ACT OF 1980 SAYS SPECIFICALLY THAT THE HUD SECRETARY MAY NOT SUPPORT HOUSING FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT HERE LEGALLY. SO, WHAT THEY’RE ASKING ME TO DO IS VIOLATE THE LAW. THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE THE LAW. BUT WHAT IS REALLY INTERESTING IS HOW THEY TRY TO MAKE THIS EMOTIONAL ARGUMENT ABOUT CHILDREN. THESE ARE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ARE FOR LATE-TERM ABORTIONS. WHO TAKE A CHILD WHO IS VIABLE OUTSIDE OF THE WOMB AND WILLING TO SLAUGHTER THEM. NOW TELL ME HOW IS THAT CONSISTENT? STUART: I CAN’T ANSWER YOUR QUESTION. I’M JUST APPALLED THAT THIS ATTEMPT TO JUST GET AT YOU AND TALK DOWN TO A MAN OF SUCH ACCOMPLISHMENT OF VIEW, AS YOU. I’M ALMOST OUT OF TIME, MR. SECRETARY, BUT I’M GLAD YOU’RE ON THE SHOW TO REFUTE THAT RUDENESS THAT I SAW SO OBVIOUSLY YESTERDAY. LAST WORD TO YOU, SIR.>>IF YOU READ SAUL ALINSKY RULES FOR RADICALS, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY’RE DOING. LOOK AT RULE 5, RULE 13. THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW THEY’RE BEING USED. STUART: FASCINATING,

Armed smugglers escort migrants to border, surveillance video shows


TRISH: WE HAVE BRAND-NEW VIDEO RELEASED BY BORDER PATROL SHOWING SMUGGLERS AND FULL TACTICAL GEAR AND MASKS CARING LONG GUNS AND AK-47 ASSAULT RIFLES ON OUR SOUTH BORDER. THEY ARE ESCORTING A GUATEMALAN WOMAN AND HER 8-YEAR-OLD CHILD UNDER A BARRIER. TAKE A LOOK. RIGHT INTO THE UNITED STATES RIGHT INTO OUR COUNTRY THROUGH THE WOMAN AND THE CHILD IMMEDIATELY TURNED THEMSELVES INTO BORDER PATROL AGENTS AND WE CAN ASSUME THEY WILL BE RELEASED WITHIN 20 DAYS BECAUSE A CHILD IS INVOLVED. ASSAULT RIFLES, CHILDREN, SMUGGLERS, EVERYTHING YOU JUST SAW YOU KNOW WHAT? IT POINTS TO A TOTALLY BROKEN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, A TRUE CRISIS. MY NEXT GUEST HAS LONG SAID THESE KINDS OF INCURSIONS OR ATTACKS AT THE WOOD ON OUR SOVEREIGNTY AS A NATION TO JOINING ME RIGHT NOW CHAIRMAN AND “FOX NEWS” SENIOR STRATEGIC ANALYST FOUR-STAR GENERAL MAC KING. GENERAL WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE SOVEREIGNTY ISSUE. WHEN I SAW THIS VIDEO EARLIER I THOUGHT ABOUT THE COMMENTS YOU MADE ABOUT YOUR CONCERNS TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT OUR BORDERS ETC.. THESE ARE PEOPLE WITH AK-47s THAT THEY ESCORT THESE PEOPLE INTO OUR COUNTRY. WHAT IS YOUR REACTION TO THAT? THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN THE CARAVANS. WHEN YOU SEE PEOPLE ARMED AND A SOPHISTICATED — SOPHISTICATED GLEE ARMED AS THEY ARE SO LUCRATIVE BUSINESS. THERE ARE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN EIGHT TO $10,000 A HEAD THAT THEY GET TO DO THIS KIND OF WORK AND THE CARTELS AND THE CRIMINAL SMUGGLERS ARE SO ALARMED EVEN THE POLICE WILL NOT INTERFERE AT THEM. THEY HAVE A FREE WRIGHT ALL THE WAY TO THE BORDER. AS WE SPEAK THOUSANDS ARE ENTERING THE UNITED STATES EVERY SINGLE DAY AND NOT BEING HELD IN DETENTION BECAUSE THE DETENTION CENTERS ARE OVERWHELMED AND THEY ARE JUST GOING INTO THE HEARTLAND OF THE UNITED STATES WHEREVER THEY WANT TO GO. THAT’S HAPPENING EVERY SINGLE DAY NOW EXCEPT THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS THE MEXICANS FINALLY STARTED TO INTERVENE AT LEAST FOR SOME OF THE CARAVANS. TRISH: WE ARE SEEING THAT BUT LET’S NOT FORGET TO GIVE MEXICO A LOT OF MONEY AND WE HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH IF YOU GO BACK SEVEN YEARS THE AVERAGE MEDIAN $300 MILLION A YEAR. MAY NOT SEEM A LOT IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS BUT 300 MILLION IS STILL A FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT NUMBER. THAT IS SUPPOSED TO HELP THEM PATROL THIS BORDER SITUATION. SUPPOSED TO HELP THEM DEAL WITH THE DRUG TANKS ETC. SO WE DON’T HAVE THE DRUGS COMING HERE BUT GENERAL I WONDER IF YOU ARE QUESTIONING THAT RIGHT NOW. DO WE NEED TO RETHINK HOW MUCH MONEY WE ARE GIVING, WHEN WE GET THAT MONEY AND WHETHER WE SHOULD GET THAT MONEY AT ALL GIVEN THAT MEXICO AND IN RECENT EFFORTS AND I APPLAUD THEM FOR THAT BUT THE REALITY IS MEXICO REALLY HASN’T STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE ON THAT.>>THEY HAVE A VERY LONG WAY TO GO. WHAT THEY BENEFIT FROM ARE THE MULTIBILLION-DOLLAR TRADE INDUSTRY IN THIS COUNTRY COME THE PEOPLE WHO COME HERE EVERY SINGLE DAY TO WORK AND RETURN TO MEXICO WITH THE MONEY THAT THEY MAKE SPEND IT ON THE MEXICAN ECONOMY. THIS IS A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR THE MEXICAN ECONOMY. HERE’S WHAT REALLY NEEDS. GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR ARRESTING PEOPLE AND DEPORTING THEM ON CARAVANS BUT WE NEED FEDERAL POLICE TO CLOSE THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF BEARS AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE LIFE FORCE TO DO IT AND THE RIGHT CONTROL MECHANISMS TO DO THAT AS WELL AS STOPPING THOSE WHO MAY TRANSIT AROUND THAT IN SOME WAY LIKE THEY ARE DOING TODAY. ADDITIONALLY WE OUGHT TO BE INVOLVED WITH THEM WITH THEIR — FBI AND OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES TO GET THE MESSAGE TO SHUT DOWN THE CARTEL TRAFFICKING AND THE SMUGGLERS WHO ARE INVOLVED IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THAT HAS GOT TO STOP AND ONCE WE START TO DO THAT THEN THE INCENTIVE TO COME THROUGH MEXICO WILL BE REMOVED. OF COURSE WE HAVE SPOKEN MANY TIMES ABOUT WE NEED MORE RESOURCES ON OUR SIDE OF THE BORDER TO BE SURE BUT MEXICO PLAYS A KEY ROLE HERE TO DISINCENTIVIZED PEOPLE TO

Texas is pledging nearly $1B for border security: Abbott


NEIL: NEW YORK CONGRESSWOMAN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ IS UNDER A WHOLE LOT OF FIRE FOR REMARKS COMPARING THE SITUATION ALONG THE BORDER AND HOW I.C.E. IS TREATING FOLKS WITH CONCENTRATION CAMPS. TEXAS GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT IS IN CHARGE OF A BORDER STATE AND PLEDGING $1 BILLION TO HELP IN THIS CRISIS. GOVERNOR, I HAVEN’T HAD THE CHANCE TO GET YOUR TAKE ON WHAT SHE SAID SO THIS IS MY CHANCE. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHAT SHE SAID?>>FIRST OF ALL, WHAT SHE SAID IS COMPLETELY OFFENSIVE BUT THAT POINT ASIDE, IT’S ENDEMIC OF WHAT WE ARE SEEING FROM THE DEMOCRATS IN WASHINGTON, D.C. ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS TALK ABOUT THIS. THEY DON’T WANT TO FIX IT. THE PROBLEM ON THE BORDER IS NOT GOING TO BE FIXED UNTIL DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE STEP UP AND AUTHOR AND PASS BILLS THAT FUND BORDER SECURITY, THAT FIX A BROKEN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, THAT FIX THE BROKEN ASYLUM SYSTEM. THEY NEED TO STOP TALKING AND START VOTING AND PASSING LEGISLATION. NEIL: SO WHEN SHE COMPARES HOW THEY ARE TREATED IN YOUR STATE ALONG THE BORDER TO CONCENTRATION CAMPS, SHE’S REFERRING MAYBE WITH HYPERBOLE HERE THAT THEY’RE NOT TREATED WELL. YOU HAVE BEEN TELLING A LOT OF FOLKS THAT’S JUST BOGUS AND THE PROOF IS YOU INVITE CAMERA CREWS TO SEE HOW THEY ARE DOING AND ALL THAT, BUT THAT’S THE PERCEPTION. HOW DO YOU COUNTER THAT?>>WELL, LISTEN, PEOPLE LIKE AOC WOULD BE COMPLAINING IF THEY WERE IN THE RITZ-CARLTON. THE BOTTOM LINE IS WE HAVE PEOPLE COMING CREWS OU PEOPLE COMING ACEWS OU PEOPLE COMING ACROS OU PEOPLE COMING ACROSSOU PEOPLE COMING ACROSS OUR BORDER ILLEGALLY FROM AROUND THE ENTIRE GLOBE NOW. THIS ISN’T JUST FROM MEXICO AND CENTRAL AMERICA. IT’S FROM CONGO AND OTHER PLACES ACROSS THE ENTIRE GLOBE. THE REASON WHY WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE COMING ACROSS THE BORDER IS BECAUSE OF OCASIO-CORTEZ AND HER PEERS IN THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES NOT PASSING LAWS TO FIX IT. IF THEY DON’T LIKE IT, THEY ARE THE ONES WITH THE AUTHORITY UNDER THE CONSTITUTION TO STEP UP AND PASS LAWS. SO IT DOESN’T DO ANY GOOD FOR THEM TO COMPLAIN. THEY ARE THE ONES WITH THE POWER TO PASS A LAW. IF SHE DOESN’T LIKE IT OR DEMOCRATS DON’T LIKE IT, PASS A LAW AND FIX OUR BROKEN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. AS YOU POINTED OUT EARLIER, THE STATE OF TEXAS IS HAVING TO COME OUT OF POCKET ALMOST $1 BILLION OF OUR STATE TAXPAYER MONEY TO SECURE THE BORDER, TO DO THE JOB THAT OCASIO-CORTEZ IS SUPPOSED TO BE DOING HERSELF. NEIL: THE MEXICANS ARE PROMISING TO BEEF UP AND ALREADY ARE ALONG THEIR SOUTHERN BORDER, PARTICULARLY GUATEMALA. ARE YOU HOPEFUL BETWEEN THAT AND THE COMMITMENT TO BE A THIRD PARTY, THIRD COUNTRY OF DESIGNATION, RATHER THAN THE UNITED STATES FOR A LOT OF THESE MIGRANTS, THAT THAT WILL LEAD TO AT LEAST, YOU KNOW, LESS OF A GROUNDSWELL OF MIGRANTS GOING TO YOUR STATE, CROSSING THROUGH THE BORDER?>>YOU KNOW, IT IS A VERY POSITIVE STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO SEE THIS MEANINGFUL COOPERATION BY MEXICO, BECAUSE IT WILL LEAD, HOPEFULLY WILL LEAD THE A REDUCTION IN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COMING ACROSS THE BORDER ILLEGALLY. THIS IS A GOOD STRUCTURE FOR US TO WORK WITH, BECAUSE THE ASYLUM LAWS THAT WE HAVE IN THE U.S. ARE BROKEN, THAT REQUIRES THE U.S. TO HAVE TO HOUSE PEOPLE WHO COME ACROSS HERE, SO IF THERE ARE THESE METHODS WORKING IN COLLABORATION WITH MEXICO THAT WILL REDUCE THE FLOW OF MIGRANTS ACROSS MEXICO, THAT WILL REDUCE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COMING FROM MEXICO INTO THE U.S., THAT SHOULD LEAD TO BENEFICIAL EFFECTS WITH REGARD TO REDUCING THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COMING INTO TEXAS ILLEGALLY. THAT SAID, THIS PROBLEM IS NOT GOING TO BE FULLY SOLVED UNLESS AND UNTIL CONGRESS STEPS UP AND STARTS USING THE POWER OF THE CONSTITUTION GIVEN ONLY TO THEM TO START PASSING LAWS THAT FIX A BROKEN ANTIQUATED IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. NEIL: GOVERNOR, WE RAN OUT OF TIME. I DO WANT TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE HELP YOU ARE HOPING TO PROVIDE TEXANS ON THE REAL

Ocasio-Cortez calls for cuts in aid to Israel


BUSINESS. MARIA: THAT’S THE QUESTION YOU HAVE TO ASK. I’M GOING TO TURN NOW CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS MADE BY CONGRESSWOMAN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ. THE FRESHMAN LAWMAKER TAKING HEAT FOR SUGGESTING CUTTING MILITARY AND ECONOMIC AID TO ISRAEL SHOULD CERTAINLY BE ON THE TABLE, SHE SAID. JOINING ME RIGHT NOW IS RETIRED FOUR STAR GENERAL, FOX NEWS SENIOR STRATEGIC ANALYST, GENERAL JACK KEANE. ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO SEE YOU. YOUR REACTION TO THIS?>>WELL, FIRST OF ALL, WE PROVIDE ABOUT $4 BILLION IN AID TO ISRAEL. THAT’S MORE THAN WE PROVIDE TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON THE PLANET. BUT CLEARLY, SINCE ISRAEL WAS FOUNDED IN 1948, IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THEY ARE THE ONLY DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND CERTAINLY OUR HERITAGE IS TIED TO ISRAEL AND OUR VALUES ARE TIED TO ISRAEL. AND SIMPLY WITHIN THEIR BORDER, THEY HAVE A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION, HAMAS, WHO WANTS TO DESTROY THE STATE OF ISRAEL, NOT ONLY DO THEY NOT RECOGNIZE ISRAEL BUT THEY WANT IT GONE. AND THREATENING ENCROACHING ON ISRAEL EVERY DAY ARE THE IRANIANS. THAT IS WHAT SYRIA IS ALL ABOUT IN TERMS OF THEIR STRATEGIC ANCHOR POINT. SO CERTAINLY IS IT APPROPRIATE FOR CONGRESS TO DEBATE OUR FOREIGN AID PROGRAM AND ARGUE IT OUT BASED ON THE MERITS? CERTAINLY. THAT SHOULD BE DONE. MARIA: YEAH.>>FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, THAT IS MONEY VERY WELL SPENT AND I THINK OUR VIEWERS, OUR TAXPAYERS, HAVE ASSURANCE THAT HE PROVIDING ASSISTANCE TO ISRAEL ON AN ANNUAL BASIS IS IN THE U.S. NATIONAL. MARIA: YEAH. AND NOT TO MENTION ISRAEL IS OUR BIGGEST ALLY IN THE MIDDLE EAST. LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THE BORDER BATTLE, GENERAL. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOUBLING DOWN ON THAT THREAT TO RELOCATE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS INTO SANCTUARY CITIES. DEMOCRATS ARE SPEAKING OUT. THEY’RE SAYING IT’S ILLEGAL TO DO THAT.>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE LEGALITY OF IT. NOT MY LANE, MARIA. BUT I DO THINK THAT CLEARLY THIS IS A CRISIS ON THE BORDER, AS WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR WEEKS. 4,000 PEOPLE CRASHING THROUGH THE BORDER EVERY SINGLE DAY AND WE DON’T HAVE THE RESOURCES TO BE ABLE TO PROCESS THEM AND HOLD THEM PROPERLY. WE DON’T HAVE THE JUDGES TO BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH THE SITUATION. I UNDERSTAND THERE’S 800,000 WAITING TO BE PROCESSED IN THE SYSTEM. I THINK A LOT OF THEM WILL NEVER SHOW UP, CERTAINLY, FOR THAT FINAL PROCESSING BEFORE A JUDGE. WHERE TO SEND THEM, I’LL LEAVE THAT UP TO DHS IN TERMS OF LOGISTICS INVOLVED AND THE EXPENSE INVOLVED IN THAT. BUT CLEARLY, AS EVERYONE WHO IS AN EXPERT ON THIS HAS SAID, WE NEED A CHANGE IN LEGISLATION TO STOP THE ASYLUM SEEKERS BEING INCENTIVEIZED TO COME TO THE COUNTRY. NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, WE’VE GOT TO WORK WITH MEXICO BECAUSE THEIR DRUG CARTELS AND THEIR TRANS NATIONAL ORGANIZATION, HUMAN TRAFFICKERS, ARE ASSISTING IN THE MIGRATION OF THE PEOPLE FROM THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE, THROUGH THE MEXICAN SOUTHERN BORDER, TO THE UNITED STATES SOUTHERN BORDER. THIS NEW ADMINISTRATION IN MEXICO HAS GOT TO CLAMP DOWN ON THAT AND IF THEY NEED OUR ASSISTANCE, LET’S GET IN THERE AND GIVE THEM SOME ASSISTANCE IN DOING THAT. AND ALSO, AS BEST I CAN UNDERSTAND, DESPITE THE FACT THAT A WEEK OR SO AGO WE WERE SAYING THE MEXICANS ARE DOING BETTER, THEY STILL HAVE NOT EMPLOYED THEIR FEDERAL POLICE TO THEIR SOUTHERN BORDER. MARIA: OKAY.>>AND I BELIEVE THAT’S ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS. MARIA: WHICH IS WHY THE PRESIDENT SENT TROOPS TO THE BORDER. U.S. TROOPS. GENERAL, IT’S ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO SEE YOU.
