eric: heavy hearts for the capitol plus and for all those who care about our law enforcement officers across the country as we mourn an officer killed in the line of duty. officer william evans was killed yesterday after that man crashed his car into a barrier on the north side of the capitol complex. a second officer was injured in this incident. he remains in the hospital in stable condition. that attack sparking a lockdown and setting the nation's capital on edge. hello, everyone, and welcome to "fox news live." i'm eric shawn. arthel: hi, eric. hello, everyone, i'm arkansas shell neville. -- arthel
neville. police shot and killed the suspect after he got out of his car and lung ared at officers with a knife. today we're learning more about the suspect as investigators the dig through his life and social media searching for a motive. we have live fox news team coverage. mark meredith is at the white house with reaction from president biden, but we begin with lucas tomlinson, he's live on capitol hill. lucas. >> reporter: good afternoon, arthel. the capitol police spent over $500 million every year in security and employs over 2,000 officers, but apparently that wasn't good enough for the first green beret in congress who wants to carry his own weapon. >> i should be able to carry it up in washington d.c. this is a high profile target. we're obviously dealing with very emotional, polarizing issues at times. >> reporter: the suspect, 25-year-old noah green.
he rammed his car into two officers and then got out of the car and tried to slash one of the officers before being hot and killed. green was not on law enforcement radar. no ties to terrorist or extremist groups. facebook has deleted green's page but not before fox was able to grab some screen shots. green recently lost his job, a few years ago -- louis farrakhan once called hitler a, quote, very great man. officials noting the time of this grisly murder, good friday. construction crews busy fortifying the sense around the capitol, in recent days the outer fencing has come down. 2300 national guardsmen continue to stand watch after being extended for two months. many lawmakers object to the
deployment. expect security to be a big topic when congress resumes. speaker pelosi says capitol police should hire 850 officers. two of those officers stood the watch and stopped the suspect, tragically not before losing one of their own. arthel? arthel: lucas tomlinson, thank you very much. eric. eric: arthel, meantime, president biden saying he and the first lady are heartbroken over this attack. the president ordering flags at the white house to be flown at half staff as officials are keeping him updated on the situation. live from the north lawn of the white house with more. another attack on capitol hill officers. mark? >> reporter: good afternoon. president biden and the first lady are offering their thoughts and prayers for the family of fallen officer william evans. the president was at camp david when the attack happened yesterday, he's still there right now, but the white house released a statement last night. we send our heart felt condolences to officer evans'
family and everyone grieving his loss. we know what a difficult time this has been for the capitol, everyone who works there and those who protect it. tributes are coming in from all across the country. evans had been with the d. for the -- the department for the past 18 years. flags are flying at half staff both at the white house and at the capitol, continuing throughout the weekend. the white house says president biden received updates from his national security team while he was at camp david on the investigation. meantime, lawmakers from both parties are speaking out offering their thoughts, their prayers, their support. we've seen multiple statements released including from house speaker nancy pelosi: at a time of such suffering, no words are adequate. however, i hope it is a comfort to officer evans' family and the family of the other officer harm in the line of duty that so many are heartbroken and grateful for the officers' brave protection of the capitol. other house members also offering up support. >> i've seen the bravery of our capitol police officers.
david bailey, kristin greiner, they went toward gunfire so the rest of us could run away from it. 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 really heart-wrenching. >> reporter: here at the white house we have not seen any noticeable security changes since yesterday's attack here in washington, although there's been a lot of debate about what security is going to look like going forward not just with on capitol hill, but also here at the white house, whether or not there would need to be more fencing, more security. right now no changes announced. eric? eric: a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that our law enforcement officers across the country face. mark, thank you. arthel? arthel: well, the u.s. capitol, eric, the police are thanking people for their support during a time of terrible loss tweeting this: the u.s. capitol police department is deeply grateful for the support we have received there around the world. we wish we could respond to each
one of you. please know your sympathy is appreciated beyond words. joining me thousand is ted williams, former d.c. homicide detective, defense attorney and a fox news contributor. ted williams, i want to start with this, first of all, let's talk about the toll this takes on police officers in general, and in this instance on cap police officers. -- capitol police officers. within three months a mob stormed the u.s. capitol, killed an officer, injured officers, led to the suicide of another officer and now yesterday a guy drives a car into a couple of officers, killing officer billy evans, hospitalizing the other. how does this compound affect the force? >> well, arthel, first of all, thank you i want to offer my deep condolences to the family of officer billy evans, an 18-year veteran, this hero. morale was already at an
all-time low as a result of what took place on january 6th. as a matter of fact, most recently there was a vote of no confidence in their leadership on the capitol hill police department. and when something like this happens, police officers, especially capitol police officers who knew officer evans and respected him, there's torment inside them. and what has happened is police officers all over the country, unfortunately, are feeling the effects of what took place on good friday, one of the holiest days on the christian calendar in washington, d.c. here yesterday with the death of officer evans. arthel: e yeah. and, ted, if there was no way that this suspect could have been flagged or no way to alert his deadly attack yesterday, i mean, how grow protect capitol officers? >> it is very difficult.
you're right, there was no way -- noah green, the alleged killer here, was not on anybody's radar screen. it appears from everything we know that mental illness may very well be one of the factors here. this was a young man who had graduated in university there in virginia. of he believed that that the fbd cia was controlling his mind. at one point he went to botswana, was there for a while, came back, was living in virginia with his brother. and his brother had said even the night before he died, he was under some mental stress. so the authorities are having to look into all of that as a part of their investigation. arthel: and then meanwhile, you know, without turning it into a a fortress, how do you protect the capitol building and the
people who work inside? >> you know, that's the $64,000 question, arthel, because the bottom line is the capitol is the people's capitol. this is where for years people have been able to go in and out without having these kinds of incidents. and as you know, after january 6th they put up a fence and had razor wire. they took some of that down, and as a result of that, you had these barricades in the ground that worked in this instance, in this incident. it's going to be very difficult. they're going to have to take another look at it. i know federal armorially, i'm sure -- [inaudible] arthel: should there be consideration to reorganize the capitol police department, maybe
adding more personnel but also adding a formidable intelligence arm? >> general russell has in his report, i understand, said that the capitol police should be enlarged and that there should be more members. and i really think that they the should be more members up there. and also, what they also need is a very strong chief of police that the men and women believe in up on capitol hill. apparently at this statement, they don't believe that they have that person. arthel: interesting. and as investigators try to piece together, again, why and and how this happened, we mentioned a little bit of this, but how will the mental health component -- or if the suspect acted alone or part of a group -- factor in? plus his posting of fearing the cia and fbi? >> well, all of that becomes part of an investigation meaning that they are going to have to do a forensic back print.
they're going to go back, they're going to know everything about him, family, friends. and at this point, it looks like there was some leaning toward the nation of islam. they're going to be checking to see if there's some kind of a connection there. they'll try to find out a motive and why that target, why the capitol. and that may never be determined since this man is now dead. arthel: and then really quickly because i have to go, you just mentioned earlier, ted,s that the brother mentioned that his brother, now the dead suspect, you know, was acting out of order, if you will. so, you know, is that a cry for people to -- what do you do? i mean, not everyone who has mental issues ends up killing someone. so how would a relative or friend respond to something like that? what do you do? at what point do you alert law enforcement? >> well, you are absolutely
right. there are a lot of mentally ill people in this country, and they don't go and attack the capitol. the brother could have monitored it. if he felt authorities could have been involved, he could have called them, but i don't think at this point even the brother knows from all we know that this man was going to attack the capitol. what i'd simply say, all mentally ill people would not attack the capitol. arthel: it's a complicated issue, it's a very sad story. ted williams, thank you very much for your expert analysis. >> thank you. arthel: eric? eric: arthel, now to the latest on the southern border. you know, "the wall street journal" today is is reporting that border agents have arrested more than 170,000 migrants crossing the border illegally. last month alone, that marks a 15-year high x. they say it's a significant jump from the month before, february. so this all comes as we're now getting a closer look at those two sisters from ecuador.
you see that video of them being dropped at night over the border wall by the smugglers. those two young girls left to fend for themselves. alex hogan live on the border in la jolla, texas, with the very latest. hi, alex. >> reporter: hi, eric. border patrol agents have called for more help in terms of manpower and technology, technology being one of the key components of securing the border. in our coverage here outside of mcallen, texas, one thing that really has marked the skyline for if us is -- for us as a point of reference is a tethered aerostat radio system. the blimp is filled with cameras that scan the border. it can go up to 10,000 feet to observe possible suspicious activity and intercept. potential narcotics shipments. the technology can detect aircraft, vehicles or boats and, of course, people depending on its location. it's just one to have many resources here along the border e, the kind of technology that was used in order for agents to
find that 3 and 5-year-old, those girls who were dropped 14 feet from the border wall this week. the technology captured their fall as well as the smugglers who ran away, leaving them alone in the middle of the night. they are now safe. fox news obtaining exclusively this photo of the little sisters in u.s. custody. now, here is a look at this area from the our fox news flight team where we're seeing massive influxes of migrants in recent days. on thursday apprehensions increased here by 313% since this time last year. as critics of the administration demand better resources in this part of the country. >> and if we continue in the same track that we are going today, we are probably going to surpass at least for the el paso sector the numbers from back in 209. >> reporter: -- 2019. currently, there are more than 18,000 children who are in u.s. custody. now, we're learning that 80% of
those kids have a relative who lives here in the u.s., and 40% of them have either a parent or a guardian. to at least a hopeful sign that some of these children that are in facilities, erik, will be reunited with their families soon. mark: yeah. they said they're sent here with phone numbers written on their arms or pieces of paper with their relatives here in the states in order to be united with them. all right, alex, on the border. thanks so much. arthel? arthel: major league baseball pulling the all-star game out of georgia after pressure in response to the state's new voting law. now some are calling italy pockily city based on -- hypocrisy based on some of baseball's other relationships. governor mike huckabee, there he is, he joins us next with his take. ♪ ♪ be ready for every moment, with glucerna. it's the number one doctor recommended brand that is scientifically designed to help manage your blood sugar.

arthel: major league baseball pulling is all-star game from atlanta over georgia's new voting law. the league saying,s quote: we proudly use our platform to encourage baseball fans and communities throughout the country to perform their civic duty and actively participate in the voting process. fair access to voting continues to have our game's unwavering
support. let's go to steve harrigan live in atlanta with the very latest. steve. >> reporter: arthel, the commissioner of major league baseball said he made this decision after talking to clubs and players both active and retired. he said in the wake of georgia's new election law which he said restricts access to the ballot box. now, there's been a sharp response to that from georgia's republican governor, brian kemp, who says this is another example of cancel culture. >> georgians and all americans should know what this decision means. it means cancel culture and partisan activists are coming for your business, they're coming for your game or event in your hometown, and they're coming to cancel everything from sports to how you make a living. >> reporter: the reactions are coming in from all sides. former president obama tweeting: congratulations to mlb for
taking a stand on behalf of voting rights for all citizens. there's no better way for america's pastime to honor the great hank aaron who always led by example. here in georgia, the situation not so simple. a number of prominent democrats coming out and say they oppose boycotts of i any kind. here's the democratic senator, johns ossoff. jon ossoff. >> we absolutely don't want to see any boycott of our state. we want business and investment and events and, indeed, it's the rapid economic growth and development of our state that's driven political progress here. we want to see that continue. >> reporter: so the game will not be here july 13th. it's not clear what city will host the summer classic. eric and arthel, back to you. arthel: okay. i'll take it right here, steve harrigan. thank you very much. >> the thing that's unfortunate about this, the atlanta braves organization doesn't support this change. they're very upset about this. they're upset for their fans and their small business owners that
are at truist park that were looking to have big crowds at the game. that's who this is going to hurt. eric: that's georgia's governor brian kemp criticizing the mlb criticizing the misguided decision. he defends the election law saying it's been misconstrued, corporations taking public political positions. so is this a new trend? for this, former arkansas governor mike huckabee, fox news contributor. governor, always good to see you. do you think -- the border now, i mean, it's affecting baseball and policy. is this something that corporations are going to be taking public positions on all sorts of issues? >> it's one thing to take a public position, but they ought to be informed. they're going to still support things in new york. new yorks has less ballot access than georgia disease. i think don't have -- does.
they don't have as many options for weekend voting as does georgia. so i don't understand the high horse that some of these executives live off of and the way that they seem to make generalizations. i'm wanting a real journalist to pin them down and say specifically what is it in the georgia law that you find so objectionable. because when joe biden tried to criticize it, "the washington post" of all people gave him four pinocchios and said it wasn't true. i'd like to know, is facebook and twitter going to suspend joe biden's account for putting out election misinformation like they did donald trump? if they don't, then we know we're living in a duplicity of rules in this country, and we know that we are. eric do you think this was political pressure? i mean, mlb reports that big names would boycott the game if it was held in atlanta. do you think that's part of the issue?
and what do we do about it? >> it's time for people to push back and stand up. i was so glad to see the people in georgia, the governor and some of the legislate to haves, are standing up and pushing back. now, if there's something legitimate they can point to in the law and specifically say, look, this is really bad, well, then do it. but do it in the context of when that law is being debated and discussed, voted on. they wait until afterwards, they were all fine with it until it got signed, and then some people raised some sand about it even though they couldn't tell you what it was they were unhappy with, and suddenly these corporations cave. but these are the same corporations that don't say a word about their businesses in china where uyghur muslims are being slaughtered over there. and i just find that hypocrisy to be utterly unacceptable. my feeling is, eric, it ought to be simple. these companies and corporations if they're selling soft drinks
or ap airline -- an airline seat, tell me the seat. don't try to be my conscience unless your going to be consistent with it k a lot of these businesses just look utterly ridiculous pretending that they care so much about some issue in georgia, and they don't care about the billions of dollars that they're making with the communist chinese party that is using slave labor and slaughtering the uyghurs. eric: yeah, we're going to talk about china in just a second in the mlb, but let me pick up on something locally, closer to home, that's the effect on businesses. critics say the law's racist, they say it's another jim crow. supporters say that's not true at all, but here's what the atlanta braves saying themselves about this. they want the game there. this was neither a decision, nor our recommendation. unfortunately, business employees and fans in georgia are victims of this decision, and the mayor of atlanta, keisha lance bottom, she says boycotts
will hit the metro atlanta area the hardest and have a ripple across the state. small businesses and everyday working people will suffer. it is the not too late to right the sinking ship. she wants the law changed, but she also as you point out was concerned about the effect on her constituents. >> well, it's not going to affect these ceos and their lifestyle one iota. not at all. but it will affect parking lot attendants and selling hot dogs and sodas up in the stands, it'll affect the people who are taking the tickets and the ushers. it'll affect a whole lot of working class people who have been hit in the teeth by a yearlong lockdown, and now they're getting kick in the teeth again by board members and ceos who will never see the effect of just crushing hard working, decent, honest people in atlanta. eric: that's the local situation. you mentioned china. the mlb just signed a whole new
contract to stream the games in china as well as throughout the asian area. they're trying to grow in china, and they have games in cuba, an exhibition game a few years ago in cuba. you know, critics are saying, look, this is in the new york sunned today, by what standard of logic does major league baseball play an exhibition game in communist cuba or red china while refusing to play in georgia? the answer, of course, is money, yanking the all-star game out of georgia was a cheep gesture. chai -- cheap gesture. how's that for backbone as the red chinese suppress voting in hong kong. double standard? >> it's the not even close call on that. i mean, how many voting precincts are open in cuba or china on an election day? oh, that's right, eric, they don't have an election day. they don't get to make those decisions. that's what's so absurd about this. and i think the people of
america ought to give major league baseball a great big gift when they have the all-star game, make sure they have the lowest rated all-tar game in the history of -- all-star game in the history of the united states and say to them, we're sick of this. don't lecture us, don't pretend that you're so morally superior when you're going over there and making billions of bucks off the cubans and the chinese. we're not that stupid. we see through it. eric: former governor of arkansas mike huckabee calling mlb out, not even a close call, he says, on this issue. governor, always good to see you. thanks so much. >> thank you, eric. eric: arthel? arthel: well, the cdc with new travel guidance for those who are fully vaccinated as air travel hits numbers not seen since the start of the pandemic. dr. marty makary is up next. ♪ ♪
arthel: the cdc issuing new guidance for people who are fully advantage is city nateed saying they can now travel safely within the u.s. however, it also points out travelers should still follow safety measures like wearing a mask and social distancing. this comes as air travel is picking up. the past screened more than 1.5 million -- the tsa screened more than 1.5 million passengers at airports yesterday, the highest since the beginning of the
pandemic. here to talk about this, dr. marty makary, professor of public health at johns hopkins university and a fox news medical contributor. good to see you and good news, dr. makary, for those who have been fully vaccinated. however, listen, with the potent variants, can a fully vaccinated person feel protected on an airplane for several hours? >> yeah, arthel, this is something which is not getting enough messaging out there. we need to let people know that the vaccines are 100 effective against all the variants in preventing death and serious illness. those are really the outcomes we're interested in. so just remember you've got no protection for the first ten days, it takes a couple weeks to kick in, and by the time you're at four weeks, you're good to go. arthel: okay. so i'm safe on the plane if i'm fully vaccinated with my mask on. got it, check one. what if you've only got one of two vaccinations? what can you do, who can you be around and how this. >> so it varies with different medical opinions, but if you
look at the data, it's pretty clear that that protection at four weeks is 92%. the one dose is 92% effective for the mow moderna and pfizer vaccines. now, we till want people to get the second dose, but you can feel pretty good about your risk profile at four weeks and, as a matter of fact, the u.k. really focused just on first doses. ten people have first doses for every one person that has the second dose in the u.k., and in the u.s. it's 2 to 1 is, so first doses do work. arthel: and now that 20 to 30-year-olds are being hospitalized with covid, is this because of the more infectious variables, and should this encourage people to get vaccinated? >> i think it's just a function of the fact that more young people are getting infected. if you look at the numbers nationally, what we're seeing driving up the slight increase or the persistent infection rate is young people. these are people who most often have asymptomatic infection or
mild infection, but the pandemic is not over, and if you have high risk, if you have risk factors, those are the folks that are ending up in the hospital, and they should continue to be very careful. arthel: right, but now you've got -- this is new to me, and i've been following this pretty closely, i believe, but now that you're having more people in their 20s and 30s in the hospital. i mean, i'm asking again, should they be more willing to get vaccinated? >> absolutely. look, they should get vaccinated, everybody should get vaccinated. but remember, these numbers that we're seeing among younger people getting hospitalized is simply the expected proportion of the overall group that's had thing infection that has risk factors, and we've known for a long time that those are the ones who get sick. for example, with kids about 220 kids in the u.s. have died under the age of 18, almost all with a chronic condition. those are the folks that need to be very careful or get their vaccine ahead of others. arthel: so in the midwest and
northeast you've got public health officials sounding the alarm about a sharp rise in new covid-19 cases in children. for instance, in michigan there has been an increase of more than 230%, that's more than doubled. in the past month and a half, this is among infants through 9 years old, again, they're saying this is due to the more infectious variants of the virus circulating in classrooms, at parties, through sports. so how do you tackle this, dr. makary? >> well, i would reiterate what president biden actually said a few days ago to remind people that the pandemic is not over. a lot of people have a lot of pent-up giddy and they're dying to get out there, and that's why we're seeing travel right now. people are acting as if it's over. remember, while we have got most high risk and most older americans protected now with the vaccine, young people are still vulnerable, and we've got really two pandemics, one among older folks and one among younger folks. we're winning with one, and we
still have persistent infection in the other. arthel: and the two do not live in separate worlds because if you've got young people becoming sick and spreading disease as in asking having coronavirus, that affects everybody, yes? >> that's right. and that's what we're learning from israel. what they found is when you get about 50% of the general population vaccinated, the age of distribution, younger people get a conferred immunity at a certain level. we've got about a third of our adult population vaccinated, so people need to be careful for the next month or so. arthel: should we continue wearing masks? >> yeah. for indoor public areas regardless of whether you've been vaccinated, we want everybody to wear a mask in an indoor public setting. it's just too hard to enforce a partial mask policy. outdoors you can do whatever you've want and interact with folks with your normal life. arthel: dr. marty makary, if
you're at your home right now, it's a spectacular backdrop, and i'd like to be invited to the next party. just saying. >> you're invited to my fourth of july party. arthel: i'm there. [laughter] thank you very much. eric: you've got to be vaccinated for that. in any event, hunter biden has been speaking out promoting his soon to be released memoir called beautiful things. president biden's son has been discussing his problems and struggle with addiction and addressing the controversy about his job with that ukrainian energy company, burisma. remember that? aishah hasnie live in new york city with what the first son is saying. >> reporter: hi, eric. yes, that moment is creating a lot of buzz right now. at first hunter biden appears to try to dodge the question, and then later he acknowledges that that laptop could be his. watch. >> it could have been yours. >> of course, certainly. there could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me.
it could be that i was hacked. it could be that it was, that it was russian intelligence. it could be that it was stolen from me. >> reporter: that exchange is part of a rare sit-down interview with cbs, and hunter biden's answer is now raising some questions about president biden's previous claims that the laptop was part of a russian disinformation campaign or a smear campaign. last fall "the new york post" published e-mails from a laptop that was dropped off at a delaware repair shop. among those e-mails, a thank you note from an executive at the ukrainian company burisma for an alleged meeting set up with hunter's father, then, of course, vice president biden. the shop owner cannot say for sure if it was, in fact, hunter biden who dropped off the laptop, but the owner says he did turn it over to the fbi. >> 50 intelligence officials who falsely accused the post of peddling russian disinformation and many others in the media who
echoed things like that without actually looking into what we had found and doing any reporting of their own, they all need to eat crow, i'm sorry. >> reporter: yeah. and, eric, hunter biden, of course, in his memoir said that he would not take the burisma job again, but he insists that it was not unethical. eric? eric: thanks so much. arthel? arthel: a plan to help low income mothers in one community drawing heat for what some say is discrimination. we'll have the details of that for you next. ♪ ♪ tual — they customize my car insurance so i only pay for what i need.

and i've only had a handful of times over the past year that have been in person, and they've been extra essential to me. otherwise it's been online every sunday for us in our household. i think when people can go back and see fellow believers, to hear sermons in person, i think it becomes even or much more retch to them. but i think -- rich to them. something we've taken for granted. eric: that's for sure. you've written your best selling book and you have your series. how has faith, how has that affected you and helped you in the struggles that you've had in your life? >> you know, last year i was writing this book during the pandemic about these 6 women. hyde -- 16 women, he'd heard a lot of these stories, and i thought, my gosh, these don't need one thing added to them. i just am so thankful to have an opportunity to put them together in this book and share them with other people because these women went through great loss, through heart ache, financial struggles,
chronic illnesses, things everybody can really relate to in the past year, but you could see god working this all of their stories. finding strength in that. i was really encouraged in the process of researching and writing the book, and that's what i hope it'll be to other people. these women are not perfect if, they're flawed just like we are, they make mistakes, they get off track, but you can still see how god redeems all their stories, and i think that's all something we need to hear, a bit of encouragement. eric that is true. you don't often here that much about -- hear that much about women of the bible. what do you think the greatest lessons are from them that we all can take? >> there are great lessons of leadership. i think about deborah in the old testament, the leader of the entire nation of israel. there's a great account of her leading them into a battle that nobody thought they would win, but she trusted god. strong leaders but humble people who pray faithfully and ask for god's help. of course, mary, the mother of
jesus, and mary magdalene, too, who's a central part of the easter story. she was there to see christ at the resurrection of the tomb, and she became essentially the first christian evangelist or witness there. there's a lot of redemption, and i think that's something that we all need to infuse boo our life -- into our lives. there are good days coming ahead. i believe that. eric: i believe too that. that too. plan to go in person tomorrow? >> tomorrow is still going to be online for us. i think one more sunday of that and then we'll be ready to go. but hi husband has gotten very good at putting together our home communion with our own joyce juice if crackers, so we try to be as faithful as we can. i think easter sunday will be at hard home for us one more -- at home for us. eric that's terrific, and we'll be back soon enough. of shannon, great to see you. >> thank you, eric.
