this video showing smugglers dropping young children just 3 and 5 years old 14 feet over a border wall and abandoning them in the new mexico desert. the border chief joined me now, thank you for taking time, when you saw this video what was your initial reaction and why have you released it? >> thank you for covering this story. for us these are the tactics we see from smugglers on the southwest border. when i saw the images provided by my staff i could not believe what i was watching. i was horrified. i was appalled to see that young child dropped like that from a 14 foot barrier to the ground in an area where it is so rocky and mountains and remote, the child for a few seconds didn't move so i was very worried until i started seeing her movement, then i saw a second child dropped off that barrier and the third item thrown over the fence
and they abandoned these children and ran up the hill and run away without caring for the welfare of those children or on the other side of that barrier. griff: the cartels behind this, you want to pursue these two smugglers but in terms of the bigger picture is this indicative? >> it is and i don't think -- i heard the comments of the secretary the other day so the department of homeland security all the way to the front line border patrol agents we all know these smugglers are very ruthless. they do huge exploitation of children and families to take advantage of a situation when it comes to human beings and it is inhumane treatment of a human being. you have been along the border
in el paso stretching from fort hancock, texas all the way to new mexico. there are areas where children are walking up to the border crossing where there is no barrier so why take these innocent little girls 3 years and 5 years old to an area in new mexico where there is a 14 foot barrier and drop them from the top of it when clearly there was another area where they were going to push these girls to the us side they could have walked through an open area where there was no need. >> in your 264 miles it is rough terrain and this is very telling. it captures the brutality of this crisis. let me ask you, there is the push factor in the northern triangle of poverty and violence, parents would consider allowing their children to make
this dangerous journey. what do you say to them? >> my intent with this video was to get this out there so that the parents with this arrangement of criminal organizations or other people that are encouraging this to understand when they turn over their children to people like this these people don't care about their well-being. they treat these children as a commodity in the moment they turn a child in, whether it is ecuador or guatemala or the triangle countries, the exploitation starts from that moment on throughout the journey. i wonder when i visited with these little girls, so concerned about them. i want to the central processing center where we are holding children and i wanted to see them. they were so talkative but i was
standing there and wondered if they were talking to me what kind of experiences they went through from ecuador that we don't know about. they were the ones being carried by these ruthless smugglers with inhumane treatment of the most vulnerable population. griff: a question on an unprecedented number of children coming across the border, one report, 180,000. are you hearing anything on what we might see this year? >> operators on the border, an overwhelming situation, and border regions are doing a phenomenal job. they are trying to keep up with the flow. we are going to surpass for the
el paso sector the numbers from 2019 and we had a surge situation of people coming across the border 182,000 people we ended up apprehending that year. griff: thank you for taking time. carley: headlines now mixed messaging, doctor anthony fauci undercutting rochelle rubin ski over rising covid 19 cases. >> i don't know if i would avoid the pending doom. carley: air travel guidance for vaccinated americans which could be issues as early as today. $2 million is how much britney spears may have to pay to cover

>> you saw the graphic failing our children, one of the biggest stories of the day is a fight to get kids back in the classroom. a year into the pandemic that fight is still going on and heating up in los angeles where a group of teachers have filed a lawsuit against the teachers union and the school district over keeping kids out of classrooms. they say their kids are being held hostage over a political agenda. here's a portion of that lawsuit just filed, united teachers los angeles use the tragedy of covid 19 as an excuse to extract conception based on its preferred personal and ideological policies by holding the education and future of children hostage. the teachers union was willing for teachers to remain out of the classroom and children including plaintiffs that supplemental, social and
economic consequences so these four parents are saying their children have greatly suffered by being forced to stay home for the whole year and one of the things the lawsuit says is whether teachers union is demanding has nothing to do with the pandemic. griff: every parent across the country when teachers unions have such a grip on the situation, not caring first and foremost about students mental and physical and academic health but in july here's a look at the demands teachers were demanding, defunding the police, housing for security for students, requiring business to expand paid sick leave, publicly funded charter schools and financial support for undocumented students. we spoke with several parents in los angeles over the past
several months hearing their frustrations. here's a clip of what they had to say. >> blame goes to governor newsom for empowering the teachers unions are instructing, the blame goes to governor newsom for not providing instructions and directions according to what he promised the state to reopen school safely. >> love of learning going down the tubes i knew that this was not going to work for our families. >> my kindergartner is in front of the screen. carley: the teachers union would say we are going to be back in classrooms by mid april, just a few weeks but that hybrid plan has younger kids going to school for 3 hours and all the kids going to school for a week and still on zoom with their teachers. they do not have a statement at this time, the teachers union did not respond. you know who is going to respond?

plastic easter eggs with bible verses around different places around campus and then what happened? >> we went out, put our eggs out, had a lot of fun doing that but we posted about the event on a facebook group first as well as social media apps and all these students knew we were going to be doing it and they decided to start a game where they were saying whoever could throw the most eggs away would win the game or whoever did that -- even had college democrats vice president partaking in this saying he would stomp eggs. it was chaotic. the outrage was pretty horrific.
carley: somebody says time to stomp some eggs. another person writes time to do a capture the egg challenge. another student says whoever finds and throws the most away wins a prize. do you know why some of these students are so angry over this? >> i honestly don't know. this has been pretty common theme in my group does any activity on campus, trying to disrupt it. we had an abortion memorial last semester, i really think a lot of it has to do with it is a public university, very liberal here and the students don't know how to interact with differences of opinion, they are going to obstruct events calling us names and threatening us and wants us to be silent because they don't know how to deal with people -- carley: easter egg hunt was inclusive because you don't have to be a christian to read a bible verse or any religion to
respect somebody's religious celebration which is what you were trying to do. sorry that happened to you. appreciate you coming on this morning. griff:'s morgan taking a dig at his former employer on april fools' day tweeting update, the archbishop of canterbury's confirmation, talking a load of old flannel in her oprah interview, itv joins up me in britain, and i decided to accept. the nation's prayers have been answered, see you monday. morgan left the show after sparking outrage saying he did not believe megan markel in her interview with oprah. morgan will discuss the controversy in an interview with tucker carlson on monday all the on fox nation. carley: that is one to watch.
siege from drugs and gangs and violence is, you can stop this and you can stop it cold. griff: that's from april of 2018 and it's been a long time since we have heard a president talk about securing our border and our country. but now montana has taken a page from the trump playbook with a new bill to ban sanctuary cities. carley: joining us live congressman matt rosendale. tell us about this new sanctuary city ban that's happening in montana all the way up north? >> yeah. well, we may be a northern border state, but we are experiencing problems from the southern border as well. i'm really proud of my former colleagues there in the legislature. i used to be the senate majority leader that worked together with governor jim forte and able to house bill 200 recently to ban sanctuary cities. i have been having discussions with our team, if you will, months ago, recognizing that we were going to have this problem
on the border and that's why one of the first pieces of legislation that i proposed in congress was to pay us a bill or bring forward a bill, no tax breaks for sanctuary cities. so to address the investment money that that these sanctuary cities were basically receiving from investors and the federal government was giving them tax breaks on that funding. so we're trying to attack this all fronts if we possibly can. griff: congressman, this bill, h.b. 200 targets tax exempt status on municipal bond. why would that curtail the crisis? >> so h.b. 200 they pay us at the state legislature, that's to prohibit all sanctuary cities. the bill that i brought forward in cock is no tax breaks for sanctuary cities. if the sanctuary cities cannot get investors to buy their municipal bonds, then they are not going to be able to fund their sidewalks, their streets, their water systems, their sewer systems. i found out while i was in the
bond title legislation that's critically important fund to have access to. and if we can cut those funds off, we can curve that are activity if you will from these sanctuary cities. there is 11 sanctuary states across the country, and 180 sanctuary cities. these folks are incentivizing the cartels to continue these trafficking issues that we're doing right now as we are saw on the border. i saw chavez the border patrol chief this morning that spoke with you about the young children that are being dropped across the border and as she explained, that's probably the bear minimal that the struggle and hardship children are going through as they travel north through the triangle countries. that's what gets lost in this whole conversation. that's just how bad people are being treated as they are on their way to our country. carley: congressman, your colleague, senator joe marchen was just at the southern border yesterday. now he is calling for widespread
immigration reform with a passive to citizenship. but he is also saying that maybe there should be a 90 day moratorium on immigration so that we can start processing these people correctly. how do you think that idea is going to play on capitol hill? >> i don't think it will play on capitol hill. i'm came out and recognized that. the fact are that the border was in good shape when the biden administration took over. it has declined dramatically since that time, and it is clear that it's going to get much be, much worse if he continues on those policies. we have got to put the policies back in place that kept the border safe and secure. we have to have the remain in mexico policy back in place. we have to continue the construction on the wall. then we can start having conversations about what to do with immigration. but, amnesty is not the answer. the democratic party already brought through two amnesty bills and rammed them through the house. that is not the answer.
right now we have hundred of thousand of people each month that are coming into our country. and we don't even know where they are going to be located. they are not processing them in a fashion that allows to go to a court hearing to find out if they are actually jingle bell for asylum. and so they are being released into the country with no court date and let's get straight, this is not immigration. immigration -- migration leads to you believe that those folks are going to rush to their country of origin. this is immigration. once they get here, those are folks are going to stay whether they say here legally or illegally they are going to stay. griff: yep. congressman matt rosendale, thank you for taking time this morning. have gadd weekend. carley: thank you, sir. >> thank you so much. carley: all right. we have got to leave with you this story also out of montana. take a look at this, a man on his horse giddy up through a convenience store. griff: the store though not finding it as funny as the rest of us, posting on facebook
politely asking customers to dismount their horses before going inside the store. the post reading in part, quote we will be glad to welcome you back, sir, but next time no horsing around, please. speaking of horsing around, carley, it's been great hanging out with you. "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ >> has the white house considered beefing up border security now that there is video of a 3-year-old being thrown over? >> are you concerned more about the kids' safety or kids getting in. >> i'm appalled that the democrats are allowing there to happen. >> some of georgia's most prominent corporate leaders are criticizing the state's new election law. >> this legislation is unacceptable. >> these ce os are full of crap. georgia is trying to make sure everybody can vote legally. >> republican pushing back against joe biden's massive spending plan. >> this provide more subsidies for electric cars than it does for roads
