carley: a few weeks ago texas rangers rescued a 6-month back baby that was thrown into the rio grande river and smugglers broke the baby's mother's legs. mom and baby are okay. two ways you can get into the country, one is over the rio grande river and the other is through the border wall and one of the first things president biden did was halt construction of the border wall fence and these holes in the border wall have become they facto highways for migrants to come across. take a listen to reporting from california yesterday. take a look. >> reporter: there's another large group that came through the gap. we can get there in a second. right up on the top of that ridge those people about 5 minutes ago, we are going to go backwards were coming through this gap in the fence that

police department, dealing with all kinds of issues, dealing with the call they handle on a daily basis and now handling more calls involving illegal aliens. griff: you saw tom is being coldly and cruelly dropped over the barrier, a snapshot of how ruthless these cartels are and you interviewed a victim of the cartel. >> absolutely right. that video, people have complained illegal alien, being brought into the united states. the cartels are involved in human smuggling making a lot of money.
and the victim was kidnapped. and and they blocked in his vehicle, remove them, taken to locations and so often, constantly threatening to kill him, 5 days after his family paid half 1 million us dollars. and they are involved in that and involved in that type of activity. griff: a migrant told me about
another incident similar to the kidnapping of an individual was held until the family paid but in the larger scheme of things officials tell me that nothing crosses the border without the cartels knowing about it and having full grasp of it. speak to that if you could. >> it used to be just smuggling drugs but they are into everything. if somebody is not involved in that particular cartel and they want to move something across the area they have to pay taxes. they have lookouts, on a daily basis watching the activity of border patrol agents on the border so they know what is going on on the border. >> janice: they have a tight

the us and the uk and the way i took it he was saying he didn't believe her. that was an attack on her character, not her race was where do you see this going to 20 years down the road. silencing these, do you see this getting worse? >> it is absolutely chilling. figures like megan realize we get banned from polite society. we need to keep this pressure on. racism, sexism and megan markel unleashed ludicrous times to oprah winfrey, the archbishop of canterbury, to say they did not get married three days before, that is an untrue claim like
many, that the queen was not going to bestow on prince archie because of the color of his skin. absolute rubbish. when i look at media coverage, fox news, the new york post confident enough to run through stories around megan and harry, the correspondent to cnn was canceled online by a group that operates on behalf of harry. carley: and debate the word debate and the thought of debating someone is a thing of the past if this continues. you are speaking out on the air, thank you for joining us, appreciate it.

years later is out on the streets. >> this is happening in radical cities and states like ours in new york where the policies in place are allowing individuals with criminal records who have been convicted of serious crimes like murder and rape to be released onto the streets. this particular case it was governor cuomo's appointed parole board that allowed this individual to be released after being sent and 16 years to life after 17 years was put back on the street, living in a homeless shelter after committing a heinous act against people blocks away. this is an example of how the mayor and the governor is taking our city and destroying it, taxes are increasing and crime is skyrocketing in this policy as well as bail reform, released many dangerous people onto the
street including those with extensive criminal histories and repeat offenders but also it is a sentiment crime, you can get away with it in new york city because they have crime in the half the nypd by one sixth. they decriminalized quality-of-life crimes that attract larger crimes to communities and taking away the immunity police officers had when acting in department guidelines, the city no longer has their backs so this is very problematic and step-by-step, city council and the mayor trying to dismantle our police department and people should be concerned because the unity they passed at the city level trying to bring the same policy to washington. we just voted on a bill the other day, that tried to make it federal law. people around the country should
be concerned about public safety. carley: a lot going on with governor andrew cuomo. he was offered $4 million. we wanted to know what he received for that book. he was offered $4 million for his pandemic response book. your reaction to that year. >> that is outrageous, the governor was concerned about writing a book instead of actually putting together a plan to deal with the pandemic. this was right in the throw of it, not like a few years later, he was right in the middle of it and still in the middle of it and our economy has been heard by arbitrary guidelines, small businesses are struggling, children still not in school, the u.s. navy comfort ship at that time at our sure and yet he is still putting them in nursing
homes, thousands of deaths. it is unbelievable he is getting away with this. frankly they should take the book off the shelves and this guy should be prosecuted for cover-up, should be prosecuted for underreporting the figures to the public and not being transparent, threatening lawmakers along the way. carley: thank you for joining us. the scramble to get migrant children out of craft federal facilities but american foster kids in limbo. foster parents watching the state making room for more migrant children. they explain next.

the property owned by the friends of jude in washington, seattle. now, you know, they told us we need to vacate so they can accommodate unaccompanied children and they are doing this for to maximize their resources. which is something i yanged what he means to me maximize profits. and make room, you know griff griff edmundo, let me clarify for our viewers the home you are being kicked out of is actually owned by this group, the friends of youth, it's technically a facility just now they are re-purposing it, if you will,
for the migrant surge, the friends of youth put out a statement on tuesday that says this: the family voluntarily entered into an occupancy agreement that provided them a home with free rent and paid for utilities while the agreement stipulate 30 days notice, the family was originally given 45 days notice, which was extended to 60 days. upon being offered further extension, the family declined. the agreement in place with this family is not a traditional rent/lease agreement and therefore does not fall under the eviction moratorium. so that's what they say. that's their position towards you. but, how is this impacting you? how do you feel about this? >> i don't know what to think about it really. we have four children and two of them are youth at risk need to
be watched 24/7. they kicked us out of the house in the midst of the pandemic. we couldn't find a place. we couldn't just -- it wasn't possible for us to find a place to go big enough home for six people, four children and two adults. and plus these children they cannot live in one bedroom with other children. they have to be in one bedroom by themselves. and they know it. they know what they did. they send the throughout looking. griff: well, edmundo, we have to leave it there. thank you for tell your story. keep us posted. >> thank you. carley: tattoo buccaneers super bowl. caption a man of my word when we
