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.

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.

Activists protesting companies working with ICE arrested at Amazon in Cambridge


and allies gathered at the
Holocaust Memorial Thursday
evening, protesting the
practice of private companies
professionally collaborating
with ICE. 55/ Yoni Kamensky 9:06
my grandfather had numbers on
his arm and somehow my father
votes republican and I don’t
know what to do with that
They marched through the streets of Boston during the evening
rush? NATS motorcycle ?a mile
and a half,
down Charles Street, over the
Longfellow Bridge, redirecting
traffic?before finally arriving at
their destination: Amazon’s
Cambridge headquarters. Puzzled employees trying to
leave work had to weave their
way
through the crowd now camped in
the lobby. Some, with police escort. Organizers with Never Again
Action, a nationwide group
formed two months ago say
private tech companies are
working with ICE, selling data
bases and software. :32 these tools are being used
to dehumanize entire
communities, to
create terror, to track people
and
round them up, put them into detention and then ultimately
deport them
NATS 24:09 and yes, amazon is
part of this crime Last year
Amazon
employees wrote executives a letter, detailing their concerns
about the relationship with ICE. :50 during the holocaust, IBM

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,

Pentagon signs off on more than $3 billion to build border wall


US. LOU: THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS HAVING ATROPHIC REPORTING. THE PENTAGON SIGNING OFF AND ALMOST $4 BILLION IN MILITARY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS TO BE TRANSFERRED TO BUILD 175 MILES WALL WITH THE BORDER WITH MEXICO. THE DEFENSE SECRETARY SAYS HALF OF THAT FUNDING COMES FROM PROJECTS IN THE UNITED STATES AND THE OTHER HALF FROM PROJECTS OVERSEAS, PRESIDENT TRUMP DECLARED A NATIONAL EMERGENCY IN FEBRUARY TO FREE UP THE MONEY

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.

New immigration rule restricts US citizenship for certain children


DEIRDRE: BREAKING NEWS. IMMIGRATION SERVICES RELEASING NEW RULES FOR CHILDREN BORN IN THE U.S. OR ABROAD TO U.S. CITIZENS. EDWARD LAWRENCE HERE TO BREAK DOWN WHAT IT ALL MEANS. EDWARD? REPORTER: YEAH, THIS IS A MAJOR SHIFT FROM THE ADMINISTRATION HERE. THE CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES SAYING NOW THAT CHILDREN BORN TO U.S. CITIZENS OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY U.S. CITIZENS. ALSO SAYING THAT CHILDREN COMING INTO OR PARENTS COMING INTO THE UNITED STATES JUST BASICALLY TO HAVE A BIRTH, THAT CHILD IS ALSO NOT AUTOMATICALLY A U.S. CITIZEN. THESE RULES GO INTO EFFECT ON OCTOBER 29th. BRAND NEW RULES THAT WERE JUST POSTED TO THEIR WEBSITE. IT CLARIFIES THE TEMPORARY VISIT TO THE UNITED STATES IS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT WITH THE CHILDREN COMING IN, THE TEMPORARY VISIT DOES NOT MEAN THAT CHILD THEN IS A U.S. CITIZEN. YOU HAVE TO BE IN THE UNITED STATES FOR SIX WEEKS OR LONGER IN ORDER TO CLAIM CITIZENSHIP AUTOMATICALLY TO THE UNITED STATES. SO A BIG CHANGE, SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR TO HARDEN THE IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Pentagon approves 20 more miles of border wall


LIZ: LET’S GET TO THE INDEPENDENT WOMEN’S FORM. NEW DEVELOPMENTS AT THE BORDER. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SUPPORTERS ARE SAYING HE’S TRIUMPHING OVER GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY. 15 MILES OF BORDER WALL BEING BUILD WITH THE PENTAGON FUND.>>YOU ARE SEEING THE EXPANSION OF THE WALL WHICH IS A CAMPAIGN PROMISE, AND ALSO A SYMBOL OF OUR TAKE OUR BORDER SECURITY SERIOUSLY. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE REGULATORY CHANGE IN THE FLORES SETTLEMENT, IT’S BEEN A SMUGGLERS’ DREAM. FAMILIES TO STAY AGENT WITH CHILDREN AND ALLOW OUR IMMIGRATION TO PROCESS THE CASES RATHER THAN HOPING THEY WILL COME BACK. LIZ: CALIFORNIA LEADING 19 STATES AND D.C. TO STOP THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.>>I’M NOT SURPRISED. WHEN YOU CONSIDER A LOT OF THESE FOLKS WERE WRINGING THEIR HANDS OVER THE SEPARATION AT THE BORDER AND TREATMENT OF CHILDREN AT THE BORDER. THIS WOULD KEEP KIDS TOGETHER WITH ADULTS, HOPEFULLY THEIR PARENTS. ALL THESE LEFT-LEANING POLICY MAKERS. IT’S ABOUT ALLOWING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AT THE BORDER AND THESE PEOPLE WILL EVENTUALLY TURN DWROIRN SUPPORTERS. IT’S A POLITICAL PLAY BECAUSE NATIONAL SECURITY IS AT RISK. LIZ: 432,000 ILLEGAL FAMILY MEMBERS IN CUSTODY THE LAST YEAR. LOTS OF PUNCHES ARE ABOUT TO BE THROWN IN THIS ELECTION CYCLE. THEY ARE SAYING HE’S NOT STABLE. THAT MONMOUTH SHOWED A DROP. HE’S BEHIND ELIZABETH WARREN. IS HIS ELECT BUILT TAKING A HIT?>>ABSOLUTELY. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE PERCENTAGE POINT DROP AMONG KEY DEMOGRAPHICS. AMONG THOSE WHO ARE NOT COLLEGE EDUCATED. THEY MAY HAVE VOTED FOR IF THE * TRUMP AND THE BLUE COLLAR WORKERS HE’S HOPING TO WIN BACK. THAT SHOWS PEOPLE ARE NOT AS ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT VOTING FOR JOE BIDEN. YOU SEE ELIZABETH WARREN PUTTING OUT POLICY PROPOSALLING LEFT, RIGHT AND CENTER. I DON’T AGREE WITH ALL HER PROPOSALS OOSMTION BUT PROPOSALS,OOSMTION BUT PROPOSALS, BSMTION BUT PROPOSALS, BUTTION BUT PROPOSALS, BUT SON BUT PROPOSALS, BUT SHE BUT PROPOSALS, BUT SHE IUT PROPOSALS, BUT SHE IST PROPOSALS, BUT SHE IS PUTTING SOMETHING OUT THERE. LIZ: JOE BIDEN HAS A BROTHER PROBLEM. JAMES BIDEN IS BEING SUED ALONG WITH TWO HEALTH COMPANIES CLAIMING THAT HE TOLD ONE HEALTH COMPANY THAT QUOTE, THE PSYCHIATRIC CHAIR MODEL WILL BE USED BY JOE BIDEN AND HE COULD FULFILL A CONTRACT BETWEEN THE HEALTH COMPANY AND LABOR UNIONS.>>THIS IS NOT HELPFUL FOR THE CAMPAIGN. ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF BIDEN’S FAMILY MEMBERS TRYING TO USE HIS INFLUENCE AND POTENTIAL PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN TO BE ABLE TO ENRICH THEMSELVES FINANCIALLY. AND IT’S NOT A GOOD LOOK. IT’S UNETHICAL. WHETHER THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT IS ANOTHER STORY. BUT I DON’T THINK THIS IS WHAT THE CAMPAIGN WOULD NEED RIGHT NOW. LIZ: BIDEN’S SON HUNTER ALLEGEDLY USED HIS FATHER’S POLITICAL CONNECTIONS TO GET A $1 BILLION PRIVATE DEAL WITH A CHINESE STATE-OWNED BANK AFTER HE FLEW WITH THIS FATHER ON BOARD AIR FORCE ONE TO CHINA. THAT’S THE AQUEUE SAYINGS, BIND FAMILY MEMBERS TRYING TO EXPLOIT AND PROFIT OFF JOE BIDEN’S CONNECTIONS.>>IT’S SAD, THOUGH. HE’S TRYING TO RUN A CAMPAIGN AND BE IN OFFICE AND HIS FAMILY MEMBERS ARE DOING WHAT THEY ARE DOING. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THIS. BUT I FIND IT INTERESTING. I CHECKED OUT SOME OF THE LEFT-LEANING MEDIA SOURCES AND THERE IS NO MENTION OF THIS. THIS HEADLINE IS NOT EVEN MAKING THE ROUNDS. IT SUGGESTS TO ME THEY ARE TRYING TO KEEP THIS STORY BURIED BECAUSE THEY WANT JOE BIDEN TO BE THE INEVITABLE CANDIDATE ON THE LEFT.

Donna Brazile to Lou Dobbs: This is a migration crisis


CAMPAIGN FORMED ANY SORT OF AGREEMENT WITH RUSSIA. JOINING US TONIGHT IS DONNA BRA STILL DOILL DONNL DONNABRAZILE. GREAT TO SEE YOU.>>IT’S BAN LONG TIME BUT I HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU. LOU: YOU BETCHA AND I HOPE THE SAME FOR YOU. I KNOW UP WITH THING. WE’RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME ISSUES THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT ALL THOSE YEARS AGO.>>I REMEMBER. LOU: AND THE FIRST IS WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A DEMOCRATIC PARTY THINK IT’S DOING REFUSING TO SECURE THE NATION, THE NATION’S BORDERS AND TO TAKE CONTROL OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.>>FIRST OF ALL, YOU KNOW, GOING BACK TO 2006 WHEN GEORGE BUSH WAS PRESIDENT, 2013 WHEN BARACK OBAMA WAS PRESIDENT, DEMOCRATS, ESPECIALLY DEMOCRATS IN THE SENATE HELD VOTES, THEY WERE STRONG SUPPORTERS OF BORDER SECURITY, ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY THAT PROTECTS THE BORDER, ADDED MORE BORDER AGENTS TO INSURE MORE BORDER AGENTS TO ENSURE THAT THOSE WHO WERE CAUGHT WERE APPREHENDED. WE CAN COME UP WITH AN APPROACH TO SECURE MEXICO’S SOUTHERN BORDER. AS YOU KNOW, ONE FIFTH OF THE PEOPLE CROSSING THE BORDER ARE ACTUALLY APPREHENDED. BUT I DON’T PAINT PEOPLE WITH A BROAD BRUSH. THIS IS GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE MORE TIME FOR THE PRESIDENT TO MAKE SURE THAT CONGRESS WORKS WITH HIM AND THE VICE PRESIDENT WHO IS SITTING DOWN WITH MEXICO’S OFFICIALS, HE’S BEEN TO CENTRAL AMERICA. WE’VE GOT TO BE MORE AGGRESSIVE IN DEALING WITH THE CRISIS DOWN IN MEXICO. LOU: WELL, HERE WE ARE WITH A NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND THE CRISIS. YOU MENTIONED 2006. 2006 AND ’07, THE PERIOD IN TIME IN WHICH COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM IT WAS THEN CALLED THE KENNEDY-McCAIN ACT. WHAT BLEW THAT UP WAS CHAIN MIGRATION, FAMILY MIGRATION, IF YOU WISH, EXTENDED FAMILY MIGRATION, AND THE RESULT IS WE ARE, ACCORDING TO THE LATEST STUDY, RESPONSIBLE STUDY, SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 22 AND 30 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN THE COUNTRY. WE DON’T HAVE ANY MORE TIME. AND THE WAY WASHINGTON, AS YOU WELL KNOW, KILLS ANY SOLUTION IS TO TRY TO MAKE THE PROBLEM EVER LARGER. WE HAVE A SECURITY PROBLEM AND WE NEED TO SECURE THE BORDER. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT, AS I DO, THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO PAY A HEAVY PRICE, WHO ARE THE, BY THE WAY, THE RINO REPUBLICANS GOING TO PAY A HEAVY PRICE IN 2020 FOR NOT SECURING THE BORDER.>>LOOK, I KNOW THAT IMMIGRATION IS A BIG ISSUE, BIG TOPIC OF CONCERN. MANY AMERICANS CARE ABOUT IT. WE’RE GOING TO TRY ON THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY SIDE TO GET THE TALKS BACK ON THE TABLE. WE GOT TO HAVE A COMP HENCE UF APPROACH TO IT, LOU. WE CAN’T DO A BAND AID AND CALL IT A WALL AND GO HOME. THIS IS A MIGRATION CRISIS. THESE ARE HUMAN BEINGS RUNNING AND FLEEING VIOLENCE. THEY’RE LOOKING FOR SAFETY. AND YES, I KNOW THE DRUG CARTELS AND OTHERS ARE SMUGGLING. LOU: YOU CAN’T JUST SAY YOU KNOW THERE’S A LITTLE DRUGS. THERE’S 70,000 OPIOID OVERDOSE DEATHS IN THIS COUNTRY EVERY YEAR BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF METH AM METHAMM METHAMPHETAMINES, MARIJUANA, COCAINE, HEROIN, FENTANYL ARE CROSSING THE MEXICAN BORDER.>>SOME ARE CROSSING THE BORDER IN PLAIN VIEW. I’M NOT MINIMIZING THE RISK. I’LL NOT MINIMIZING THE DANGER. I’M SAYING THIS CRISIS THAT WE’RE FACING TODAY IS NOT GOING TO GET ANY BETTER AS LONG AS WE’RE JUST, YOU KNOW, CALLING PEOPLE NAMES. WE GOT TO — LOOK, CENTRAL AMERICAN LEADERS — LOU: FIRST ONE CALLING NAME BY THE WAY IS THE LEADERSHIP OF THE REPUBLICAN SENATE. DONNA BRAZILE, GREAT TO SEE YOU. I’M GLAD TO SEE THAT WE’VE REACHED SUCH AGREEMENT OVER THE YEARS.

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.
