>> tucker: such a good point, and thank you so much. thank you for watching piers morgan on monday have a happy easter weekend and we hope you can hug the ones you love. will be back. ♪ ♪ >> welcome to this special edition of "hannity," i'm jason chaffetz in tonight for sean. moments we will have full coverage of the crisis at the rdsouthern border and the very latest on hunter biden but first we start with an update from today's horrific attack at the united states capitol. fox is now learning that an individual who is identified as a nation of islam follower on facebook named noah green intentionally rammed his car into two capitol police officera before crashing into a barrier. moments later green was shot and
10:01 pm
killed after he exited his vehicle andic lunged at police with a large knife. one capitol police officer, an 18-year veteran named billy evans, later died from his injuries. our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to his family. the entire capitol police forcee and the officer who is still in the hospital tonight, sadly this year, through just four months, countless police officers have faced life-threatening attacks. so far, more than a dozen have been ambushed and murdered in the line of duty. but instead of flatly condemning violence against police, and the attack that took place earlier today, congresswoman omar is trying to score political points tweeting in part, "the death toll would have been worse if the assailant had an ar-15
10:02 pm
instead of a knife." joining us now is illinois congressman rodney davis who is a ranking member of the house administration committee. had the honor and privilege of serving with the congressman back when i was in congress. thanks for joining us tonight. this is a hard night. i want to remind people that you are -- you were actually on the ball field, you were actually up to bat when scalise was injured and now we have this incident once again where the capitol police, one of them was killed. >> you know, jason, it's great to see you. i just wish it wasn't on such a tragic day. you're right. i have seen the bravery of our capitol police officers. david bailey, crystal griner, they went toward gunfire so the rest of it could run away. the heroes that protect the capitol, you knew when you were there, you still know them, they are the bravest of the brave and to see them, to see them hit today was just -- it was heartwrenching.
10:03 pm
>> jason: based on the briefings that you got as a ranking member which has jurisdiction over the capitol complex and capitol police what else can you tell viewers who are listening and hearing about this for the i first time? >> you know, the good news is, most of the information is out there. i just feel so bad for officer who perished. he leaves behind a family and these are the types of days we have to take a step back and realize that we can't keep separating ourselves. we've got to come together as americans. we've got to fight for our law enforcement officers to see them painted with a broad brush of corruption, onlyly leads to more like we saw today. >> jason: one of the lessons of today wasn't just what was happening at the capitol but it happens all across the country every day, those men and women that go out to serve our nation. one last parting thought. what do you want to say to america about law enforcement io this country right now? >> i want to say thank you. w
10:04 pm
when you see a police officer, thank them. let's not play politics like one of my colleagues did today who ironically, because of threats to her, has a security detail that travels with her 24-7. let's make sure we say thank you to every single person who protects each one of our communities because daily they go to work and we want them to come home safely. >> jason: congressman you represent 800,000 people there in the great state of illinois but i hopeun you get a chance to go to that service and thank all of america and represent all of us in thanking that officer and his family for his service to this country. >> i'll certainly do my best to make sure that happens. >> jason: thank you, appreciate it. we'll continue to update you throughout the night if more information about noah green and
10:05 pm
his motives becomes available but first letters turn to the crisis on our southern border where top democrats are doing anything they can to shift the blame and pretend like this crisis is not really a crisis. on twitter, congresswoman ocasio-cortez played cruz. you'll notice she's not at the border weeping in front of photographers while clinging to a chain link fence for a photo opportunity like she was in 2018. instead she's telling her followers that people are just pretending this is a new emergency. of course, the crisis at the border is now worse than ever before. migrant kids are literally stacked on top of each other in facilities operating at over 1,600% capacity. covid-19 and other diseases are
10:06 pm
spreading rapidly. we have video of babies getting hurled over the board wall by human smugglers thrown into the rio grand. this year 184,000 migrant children are expected to cross the border. many of them separated from their parents. make no mistake. it's y joe biden's policies and statements that caused this massive crisis, but he has no 'sregrets. watch this. >> president biden: look, the idea that i'm going to say, which i would never do, an unaccompanied child ends up at the border we're just going to let them starve to death and stay on the other side, no previous administration did that either except trump. i'm not going to do it.
10:07 pm
>> jason: joining us now to respond is fox news contributor and former acting ice director tom horman along with fox news contributor charlie hurt. first of all, thank you for your service.ce d you know, serving our country. you just returned from the rio grande valley there and what were the people on the border patrol and those that are dealing with the crisis in real-time right now, what's going on and what are they telling you? >> first of all, the comments by president biden were disgusting. i have never seen a president make such claims against the men and women who serve in this country on the front line, who put their lives on the line every day for his country, for his information, border patrol save lives. w they saved over 4,000 lives last year and i was down at the re-grand valley for the last four days i started my career in the border00 patrol, they are great patriots. i can say right now they have lost respect in their president
10:08 pm
because of the comment he made that they didn't care about dying children. how disgusting. when the men and women jump into rivers to save drowning children and women, it's just incredible the commander-in-chief would say sufficient things. they also lost respect with the secretary of homeland security. every one i've talked to have lost respect. when he goes on national tv, there is no crisis, these men and women know different. in the 20 minutes i was standing with them nearly 200 family units were apprehended and while they are dealingng with 200 borr patrol told me now the drug cartels can freely run drugs though unguarded sections of the border. so men and women, they will continue to serve this nation and be brave while our leaders are sleeping in their bed at night, they are doing the best they can, god bless them. my heart goes out to them
10:09 pm
bbecause what i saw down there, jason, the only compassion i saw when i saw border patrol agent, a big border patrol agent kneel down to 57-year-old little girl who was crying and scared, he talked to her like a father, within two minutes he got her to ercrack a smile. he held her, he hugged her, even during covid these border patrols are treating theseel families with dignity and respect so shame on president biden for his comments. >> yes, that was my experience, too, the time that i've been down to the border. it's amazing the compassion and the toughness that they put into this. now, charlie, this is one of the greatnt super spreader even, you look at the video, you've got percentages of covid down there, and the biden administration refuses to even call it a crisis.t >> it's truly astonishing. you've got those great heroes that are working at the border trying -- not only trying to protect the border but literally saving lives every single day at the and then you have, you look around washington and you have
10:10 pm
these fundamentally unserious ridiculous people like congresswoman ortez, who if you remember a couple of years ago when she was down at the bordere trying to jin controversy for her own political benefit she was talking about how the migrants were drinking out of toilets. we later learned that the only reason she made that claim because she's happy to make up ridiculous stuff like this in order to score political points. but the other problem was, that her spanish is so bad that she misinterpreted what people apparently were telling her about what they were doing. so, you know, these people, she can get into these twitter fights with ted cruz and do her little comedy routine and try to be all funny and witty and harsh and all of this kind of stuff but at the end of the day, congress has a responsibility to protect our borders and to end crises like this, and people like ocasio-cortezng and people
10:11 pm
like joe biden who has been part of the problem for 50 years failed to do anything -- fix any of the problems and it falls to our border patrol agents to clean up their messes. >> jason: they can't even admit it's a crisis. tom, i think one of the untold stories here, if border patrol is taking these people in by the thousands and then they are released into the united states of america what are these people supposed to do for jobs, medical care, housing, school, ind mean, they never even talk or address these things. these people are here to stay forever, aren't they? >> yes. they release them on reconnaissance, which means when they get to their final destination, at taxpayer expense, i had seven migrant families that were just released from border patrol with government paid plane tickets to get to their final destination. when they get to their final destination because of the way
10:12 pm
they were processed out, not really being processed with no court date they automatically qualify for work authorization, with the unemployment rate where it is in the united states, these people are competing for some of the same jobs that unemployed americans are. and they are here to stay. if you look at the data, less than 3% of the people ordered removed have left. hundreds of thousands have been ordered removed by an immigration judge and they ignore the order. what happens to those hundreds of thousands? they are going to get amnesty under biden's plan. these people are here to state. they gutted ice and they took the authority from ice away to remove illegal aliens. they have to commit a serious aggravated felony before ice can remove them. these people are here to g amnn. >> jason: i remember when i was in congress we conducted a hearing and found there were 60,000 instances of where there were people that were here illegally committed a crime, got quitted of a crime, and instead of deporting them the obama-biden administration
10:13 pm
released them back out into the homeland and a good percentage of those went on to commit more crimes. it is a crisis and it's about time that this administration admits out loud that it is a crisis of their own doing and they figure out how to solve it because donald trump had lactually solved this. thank you so much, appreciate you joining us. tonight, while the crisis at the southern board has no end in sightoi we do have god news to report on the ongoing pandemic. according to the centers for disease control vaccinated people can travel safely withind the united states, and remember, there are now three approved vaccines, which will soon be available for everyone across the regardless of age or preexisting conditions. well, except in vermont. if you're under 50, you can only get the vaccine in vermont if you "identify as a person of color." meanwhile, a few weeks ago, on cnn, the former president of planned parenthood turned cnn
10:14 pm
medical analyst bashed states for relaxing their lockdown measures. see, according to this medical analyst, if people get their freedoms back how would the biden administration force them sto get a vaccine? watch this. >> we need to make it clear to them that the vaccine is the ticket back to pre-pandemic life and the window to do that is narrowing. you were mentioning about how all of these states are reopening. they are reopening at a hundred percent and we have a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to that status because otherwise if everything is reopened then what's the carrotd going to be? how are we going to identify these people to actually get the vaccine so that's why i think the cdc and the biden administration needs to come out a lot bolder and say, if you'ret vaccinated you can do all of these things. b otherwise, people are going to go out and enjoy these vaccines
10:15 pm
anyway. >> jason: yes, i got the vaccine, my wife got the vaccine but someone might want to remind cnn in the united states of america, freedom is bequeathed from god, not from the government, chose to do it but if my neighbor decides not to do it, that's their business, not cnn's business, not joe biden's business, not kamala harris's businesses. joining us is one of our favorites, dr. ben carson. i think i'm going to call you doctor, i think that's a higher calling than secretary. thank you for joining us. >> gets to be with you. >> when you see this medical analyst react and say, hey, we better coerce these people into taking this vaccine or we're just not going to give them their freedoms back. how do ha you react to that? >> well, it's distressing because america is a place that people came to from all over the world because they wanted to be free.
10:16 pm
and what we should be doing as far as vaccinations are concerned, is convincing people, let's use the data and sit down and explain things to people so they have a full understanding, and then let them make a decision. that's always been the strong point of who we are as a nation. and we seem to be moving very rapidly toward, you know, putting our foot on people's necks and demanding how they must act and if they don't act the way we want them to, we cancel them or we do some other thing. this is totally antithetical to the principles of the founding of this nation. and people need to get alarmed about it and people need to start talking about it and doinl something about it because, as
10:17 pm
ronald reagan says, you know,sa freedom is never more than a generation away from being lost. >> jason: it's so true. i think when you're analyzing whether or not you want to elect somebody in the public office you need to get to the root of their principle about what they belief the proper role of government is because if they don't get that right then they get the answer to these things totally wrong. now in vermont they are saying that you need to be a person of color or you -- you don'ty get o get into that line. how do you react to that? >> well, you know, this whole identity politics stuff is poisonous. if martin luther king, dr. martin luther king were here today, he would be absolutely offended. he wanted people to be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin and here we are doing everything we possibly can to separate people on the basis of race, religion, gender, whatever things that we can find, instead of the united states, we're working the divided states.
10:18 pm
and a house divided against itself cannot stand. it is the most ridiculous policy, w and i hope that the state of vermont will very seriously reconsider, and we need to start looking at our population in terms of who needs what. and working on the basis of need rather than on the basis of superficial identifying qualities. >> jason: well, doctor, i thank you for your service in the trump administration, and probably even more importantly, your service saving countless lives in your time as being a doctor. so thank you for joining us tonight on hannity. we do appreciate it. >> thank you for what you're doing and i hope everybody will recognize that we have to do this together. >> jason: amen. appreciate it. thanks, doctor. coming up on this special edition of "hannity," the left is once again disguising their

♪ ♪ >> jason: welcome back to this special edition of "hannity," law and order in america. democrats are eager to go on another reckless spending spree. this time under the guise of infrastructure with a price tag north of $2 trillion. but less than 10% of the spending actually goes to roads, bridges and highways. despite biden touting this package as prioritizing upgrades
10:24 pm
to our nation's infrastructure, of course, this is nothing new for democrats. remember in 2009 the biden-obama stimulus package, it promised repairs for roads and bridges, remember in st. paul the bridge had collapsed and killed people, hey, we've got to fix those, guess what, only a fraction of the $787 billion ever went to those repairs. it was less than 10% and in the recent covid relief bill, $1.9 trillion less than 10% went directly towards attacking the virus. see the pattern here? billions and billions were allocated to far left partisan pet projects and democrats are saying the quiet part out loud that they want to pay for this spending bonanza with more tax increases. that's right, americans. you get to pay more. just listen to congressman cleaver pushing for a gas tax hike because he says most
10:25 pm
americans don't even know what it is anyway. have a look. >> i and probably many others would like to see the gasoline tax raised. as you know, that has been talked about for decades, and unfortunately, americans have become so accustomed to high gasoline prices, i would challenge anybody, looking at your show, to go out and ask 10 people how much they pay in federal gasoline taxes they can't tell you. >> jason: yes. so you can't tell anyway's so it couldn't bede clearer. democrats are on a quest for power. at all costs. they want trillions in more additional spending. not to improve the quality of your life but to turn their far left fantasies into a reality. it isn't about roads and bridges andif highways. it's about implementing economy-killing climate measures.
10:26 pm
it's the green new deal with lipstick on it. that's what they did. they put lipstick on that pig and they wanted to change the way it goes. reorganizing society in their vision and centralizing government power in washington, d.c. joining me now for reaction is radio talk-show host larry elder, along with fox news contributor lisa booth. both have things to say on this. larry, i think you get a sense of my opinion about this. what's yours?>> >> you know, jason, if the democrats really want to improve things, really want to improve things they would be doing something about education k through 12. in virtually every major city in america, in the inner-city k through 12 education is absolutely lousy. there is a program in washington, d.c. called the scholarship hope program. i'm sure you're familiar with it and barack obama tried to shut it down. the democrats always try to shut it down. black parents are
10:27 pm
oversubscribing on it. you have zero percent of kids that can do math at grade level. in california 75% of black kids can't read at proficiency. and the math scores are even worse. we're not having any discussion about decades long basically encouraging women to marry the government to the point now where 70% of black kids are born outside of wedlock and when you're born outside of wedlock you have a much greater chance of dropping out of school, being poor, going to jail, and we're not even having a discussion on whether the war on poverty has encouraged the destruction of the nuclear american family. >> jason: well said. amen. i totally agree with that lisa, to larry's point, we're not talking about school choice. things that will actually change the trajectory of people's chfuture. senator scott's -- this is really the green new deal that they are trying to resell
10:28 pm
because they couldn't sell it the other we figured out how to rebrand it. let's call it infrastructure. >> it's a clever game, isn't itt and it works. you're right. this isn't about infrastructure. this is about the green new deal when less than 6% goes to highways, bridges and roads. the covid bill wasn't about covid when less than 10% goes to thcovid. hr-1 is a partisan take over of an election system but it's a clever game because it disguises these policies and they are able to lie about it but they have to lie about it, jason, because look at the last time democrats tried to pass a big climate change policy. it died in the senate in 2009 when democrats had 59 seats in the senate and theyas couldn't t it done. so they have to lie about it because what would actually happen if americans really knew what was in some of these pieces of legislation? do you think americans would support the largest tax increase in a generation to pay for
10:29 pm
hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies for electric cars or retro fitting houses? do you think they would pay forn these policies that move us away from affordable energy here in the united states? of course not, jason, but they are allowed to lie about it because the media are active tsparticipants in a disinformatn campaign and that's the trouble. that's the rub. that's the issue we're facing as americans right now, is the truth isn't allowed to prevail when democrats have the monopoly on the flow of information to us and the american people. >> jason: you're absolutely right. i've got toet tell you, it's ony going to continue to get worse and worse. i think what they do is they make these packages so big and so ominous, that you can only talk about the top line issue and they do have a compliant
10:30 pm

10:35 pm
of course, it's all being amplified by the partisan media. just listen to the outrageous comment from one far left pundit on msnbc. >> but they are trying to say they are coming after you, white people, what you love, your way of life. it's immorally and economically bankrupt agenda and it's an attack on the vote. if the politicians can't win the fair way they have got to rigge the rules to make it harder for eligible citizens to vote. that's their only play left, trying to scare white voters and trying to make it harder for black, white an brown people to vote. this is a targeting of black voters who rose up in georgia to give the democrats a majority. >> jason: now we're learning tonight that the major league baseball will be caving to the mob and essentially paying the ransom. moving the all-star game out of atlanta. a move supported by president biden. joining me now for reaction along with fox news legal
10:36 pm
analyst jarrett is outnumber co-host and attorney emily -- thank you for joining us. emily, i'll start with you. you're a sports fan, and i see yothese companies succumbing to this rhetoric that's false information and then making corporate decisions that are, in the case of atlanta, going to harm the people of georgia by pulling out major league baseball and the all-starr game out of atlanta. >> that's exactly right, jason. the people who end up paying for this are those that were employed by the event that they are pulling out. it's those communities that depended on the retail, on the support by's crowds, et cetera. it's exactly what we saw when hollywood decided to boycott georgia and the irony is that there are states with far more draconious election laws. they are laying out their social justice line. what about the 1.5 million corporations and entities that are headquartered in delaware that enjoy the law that is
10:37 pm
protect their corporate interests there and yet in delaware they don't have the 17 days of early voting that this preserves in atlanta, right? or the accommodation laws. it's totally asinine, and let's back up for those ceos for a second ofar these corporations. apple, for example, enjoyed a 57% sales increase in china. there is no mention of the human rights abuses there. delta, which claims that they are the most china-friendly-u.s. airline,en and, in fact, both apple and coca-cola, those ceos, they lobbied against legislatioe that would prevent chinese manufacturers from importing goods to america that relied on forced labor. where was their human rights and social justice platforms then? they are absolute hypocrites. >> jason: yes, greg, i guess part of the rub on this, this
10:38 pm
whole discussion is that when you have the president -- multiple times, i mean, at least more than once, i should say, that suddenly, you know, they are dealing with information that even the "washington post" is giving four pinocchios to, greg, how do we can combat that when you have the ceos and the traditional media just regurgitating it as if it's total fact? >> you've got to be smart about major league baseball didn't read the new georgia law. i read it. i re-read it today. it doesn't say what they claim it says. they are just mimicking democrats and the liberal media and especially joe biden and what he's saying, and his lies have been egregious. for example, he said voters will -- the voting polls will close at 5:00 p.m. in georgia under the new law.
10:39 pm
no it won't. in fact, just the opposite. they actually -- spanned the number of hours. i don't know where joe biden gets his information. he's either seriously misinformed, deliberately lying or his brain is so scrambled he has no idea what he's saying. the "washington post" fact checker gave him four pinocchios. so what did biden did? he went out and repeated the exact same thing. now he's up to eight pinocchios. msnbc and other liberal organizations they keep reairing the lies. the truth is, the vast majority of americans, 72%, are in favory of things like voter i.d., which is prevalent in so many blue states, even joe biden's home state of delaware. i never heard him complain about that. and in georgia, a majority of african-americans are in favor
10:40 pm
of voting i.d. they have no problem with it. and by the way, you don't have to have a driver's license. you can get for free, just asking for it, a voter i.d.o in fact, you can even just use the last four digits of your social security number. so this is cancel culture run amok. >> jason: we want to bring in fox news contributor and civil rights attorney leo torell. leo, we're thrilled to have you. leo, 2.0 is impressive. i've got to tell you, it's impressive. it would be interesting if georgia had simply copied the delaware law and made it their law, because delaware is far more "suppressive" so when you hear these stories and you see these things about what governor kemp is doing and what georgia is doing, is that racist? >> let me think about that. no, buthi see, here's the game. the democrats play the race card. i want america to hear this. there is no jim crow law in georgia or texas.oc
10:41 pm
it's a lie. it's a big lie, and you know what we need to do? republicans and i need to challenge it. call them on it because it's a big lie. but here's the problem, jason. no corporation wants to be accused of being a racist so that's why delta, coca-cola, that's why all of these companies they cave in because they don't want the accusation. we have to call these democrats on the lie because you're right. they are repeating the lie over and over again but i want this message to be heard, to all those left wing networks. cnn, msnbc, you're lying to the american people, systemic discrimination does not exist but it's accomplishing what they want because the lie needs to be challenged, and you know what? i have no problems challenging them and calling them on it. there are no jim crow laws in period. >> jason: well said, leo.
10:42 pm
i've got to tell you, my personal opinion, i don't think major league baseball is moving out of atlanta without the tacit approval and behind the scenes maneuvering by the white house. that's my personal opinion. we'll see how it plays out and i'm fascinated to see where they go and lets compare their state laws to georgia'sho new state ls and we'll see who is actually more abouthe giving voters the right to express themselves. legal, lawful, and verified voters. that's what should be happening. thank you all for joining us tonight. leo, greg, and emily, we appreciate it.t. coming up, overwhelming evidence, despite it, hunter biden still refuses to claim ownership of his infamous laptop. watch. this it's amazing. the biden administration is now planning to reenter nuclear negotiations with iran. ric grenell, reaction coming up next.

post" was kicked off of twitter and social media accounts for reporting the truth. we have a crisis going on in washington, d.c. because a whole bunch of people don't want to pay attention to the truth and they think that we don't notice. but the reality is, jason, that there wasn't a single piece of intelligence that said the russians were responsible for this laptop. that's a made up lie, and also, it was made up three weeks before the election. we had 50 former u.s. officials and intelligence officials who signed a letter three weeks before the election and said, don't pay any attention to the laptop because it's russian disinformation. that's a lie. that's the classic example of manipulating and politicizing intelligence for partisan gain.

they did it. the biden administration did it. i don't understand why people in washington, d.c. who say they are journalists aren't asking these questions. we're not going to be able to have the same powerful country if we have a media in washington, d.c. that continues to pedal lies and is disinterested in the truth. >> jason: when you have social media companies, you know, also suppressing that information, even having the discussion, you're right, every one of those 50 former intelligence officers, count them as political pundits spinning things for purely political gain. appreciate it, ric grenell. i want to turn to morgan, wrote an important piece in the federalist how the biden administration is totally changing what the trump administration did to make sure iran never gets a nuclear bomb. >> ric, ambassador grenell, is also part of that effort. we had a maximum economic pressure campaign for overor the years in the trump

administration, and what's being reported this week, what the state department has said today is that they are going to be attending a meeting next week in europe with people with the signatories of the jcpoa. so why is that important? that's important because iran has done nothing in the past few months since this new administration took power to deserve sanctions relief or to deserve the united states entering some sort of deal. and i think what's fundamentally happening here is you're seeing that this administration does not appear to understand how much the middle east has changed in the past four years. we had four peace deals between arab states and the state of israel. of course, ric grenell, negotiated the deal between kosovo and israel as well and so the region has fundamentally changed, but this new

administration, because all of their political appointees obama in the administration, they seem hell bent on repeating what they did four years ago without realizing how much the middle east has changed, and importantly, what isep iran doing? we have a dead american in iraq on president biden's watch which happened because of the proxies, the shia proxies, and they have them attacking the u.s. embassy and other u.s. installations in iraq. we see civilian airports, civilian airports in saudi arabia, that are attacked by houthies, and there is absolutely no reason to give them any sort of sanctions relief. >> jason: iran listens to strength. peace through strength. unfortunately that's not what's happening in this biden administration. thank you both for your service to this country.
