nearly 19,000 unaccompany migrant kids in the u.s. former health and human services secretary doctor tom price will join us shortly with reaction but first, alex hogan reporting from the border city of mission texas. alex. >> hi jon i'm standing just south of the border wall that has yet to be finished but this is the real border separating the u.s. from neighboring country mexico. the rio grand river also the final stop for many of the my fleeing in hopes of making it here to the u.s. now, we know that over the weekend we saw already migrant families that did arrive. we have drone video of that a large increase of migrants rifing here apprehensions expected to have exceeded 1 70,000 in march that would be a 15-year high. many say that they're fleeing home countries devastated by poverty and lack of opportunity. the white house attributes
influx of migrants to a crisis in central america. critics, however, say the administration needs to do more. this week republicans and democrats did come together to draft a bill that would create a $1 billion fund for the department of homeland security and other agencies. well of the technology that is available to agencies here in the rio grand valley, there's a tethered radio system that is a blimp that can go up to 10,000 feet. that scans the border for aircraft, boats and, of course, people who might be traveling and of that technology, something that is remarkable is that that's the kind of technology that was able to capture the video of the two girls a three and a five-year-old girl who were dropped 14 feet over the border wall there with -- smugglers leaving them alone. well fox news did obtain a photo of the girls who were safe in u.s. custody their mother lives in new york. estimates that as many as 184,000 kids will cross the
border alone this year, that would be the highest number on record. 8 % of them have a relative in the u.s. 40% of cases have a parent in the country. now our crew here in texas has seen hundreds of people within the last day who have crossed alone and many of them frustrated, exhausted when they finally arrived here now to help some of those families, especially the ones carrying children, there are more facilities that are being open just the latest is in southern california. these pentagon just approving that request from hhs today. jon. jon: alex hogan from texas. alex, thanks. so number of unaccompany migrant children from federal custody soaring to nearly 19,000 with no signs that the surge headed for our border is slowing down at all. here to talk about it dr. tom price former hhs secretary -- as well as former congressman from the state of georgia.
i want to put up numbers on screen doctor price. customs and border protection is holding 5,381 children. health and human services your former agency holding 13,359 that's as of yesterday. what is the white house doing? >> well, clearly this is a very sad situation and it is all preventible and that's the important take home message for the american people this is a direct result of the policies or actually the lack of policies under this administration. as your report said 170,000, 170,000 crossing border illegally just in the month of march that's a 15-year high you have all of these kids 18,000 kids -- currently in position of the united states right now. 13,000 plus have been shelter in over 5,000 of them with cdp. this is a crisis of incredible proportions and again very sad
because it is all preventible and all you have to do is go back to the policies of the previous administration, and that would solve this problem right now. >> is it also about economic advancement is it their parents wanting them to have a better life? why are so many of them coming? >> well they're coming because of the president has said that he isn't going to do anything about them. they -- and you don't have to take that from me if you just ask the individuals coming across border why are you coming now and they will say that president biden has told them that they can stay. so this is a clearly -- again a direct result of the policies of this administration. and the statements out of this president and vice president. and haven't talked about health consequences of this. it is at least 10% of the children that are covid positive that are coming across border illegally right now. and likely is meant as much more than that. in addition to that, many of these individuals are being released into the united states without getting tested at all.
and there's no transparency, huge lack of transparency from the administration so it is hard to get that information. again, very sad, and a direct result of the policies of this administration. >> kim was the former acting director of health and human services during trump administration he saw a surge of migrants during that time period. but this one he says is different. listen. >> the last time there was a month this high it was almost completely adult males. and overwhelmingly mexican, so the logistics of that situation were much easier than what they're contending with now where they've set up a system intentionally that makes it -- incentivizes people pushing their children across border unaccompanied -- >> you have to wonder the thinking that goes through the minds of the parents who are
allowing or sending their children into this country with absolutely no support. why are they doing that? >> well they know, that, that report was absolutely spot on. they know that america is a compassionate country. they know when these kids come across that they'll ultimately be freed within the -- within the country. and so they know that that is an opportunity that their kids will have to come into the united states. this is -- again, this is a direct result of the policies of this administration. it didn't happen before because the previous administration said don't come across we're going sending you right back home so the parents did the responsible thing then. and didn't allow their kids to come across. jon: we are still arguing about so-called dreamers many of whom were adults now. most of them probably. they came across the border or came into the country illegally with their parents generally. years ago -- and now there are some 11 million of them, and you know they're kind of living in the
shadows and kind of not nobody knows exactly what is gong to happen to them. we're creating an entirely new generation of future dreamers here, aren't we? >> you're absolutely right. so the consequence of this aren't just the short-term they aren't what you do with kids in next two to three weeks next two to three month what is do you do in next 15 to 20 years with these individuals these children who are going to be in the united states? and they'll pull at our heart strings like current dreamers do. that's not -- that's not to say these are bad folks but what is happening is that this administration hasn't put in place appropriate policies to prevent this from happen, and that's their responsibility. that's one of their core responsibilities and they're failing terribly on it. jon: former congressman from georgia what do you think of the major league baseball boycott of your state and, you know, coca-cola other company delta airlines talking about, you know, pulling out, pulling
businesses out of georgia? >> yeah i can't think of anything much more irresponsible than this, and not because there aren't appropriate differences on policy. but the fact of the matter is, that this -- this action has been taken based upon distortion and lies. things that just aren't true. the bell that was passed is similar to bills in multiple other states. there are 35 other states that have exactly the basically xeangt exactly the seam kind of legislation that has gone through -- gone through their state and many states that have the same kind of treatment of absentee ballots for id. as i mention 35 states georgia has expanded. the length of time for early voting, and so -- the problem is that it is just not based upon fact. so people are reading the headline it is they're getting little briefs of they thinks that aren't accurate and they're championing something that is actually gong to hurt other individuals. and you have to ask yourself
which state is good enough? which state -- has all of the policies in place that the people on the left want and desire? and if that only place we can now play an all star game and if all star game isn't any good why is major league baseball team good and should atlanta braves omgoew somewhere else this is exactly what mob rule looks like and it is less than democratic small d. >> dr. tom price good to have you on. >> thank you. jon: just into fox news florida governor ron desantis declaring state of emergency in manatee county after a leak at a wastewater pond there state officials say leak was detected yesterday at a facility in piney point about 30 miles south of tampa. about a dozen homes in the area have been e vangted over concerns that a reservoir could collapse and unleash a flood of toxic water. officials are working to safely

memoir and answer could now cast doubt on president biden priest claims that the laptop was parts of russian disinformation or a smear campaign. last fall the new york post published e mates from a laptop dropped off at a delaware repair shop among those e-mails a thank you note from an executive at the ukrainian company burisma for allege meeting set up with hunter's father then, of course, vice president biden. shop owner cannot say for sure that it was hunter bide whon dropped off that laptop but the oner says he did turn it over to the fbi and some believe hunter biden not denying in this interview that it is his laptop, says everything. 50 intelligence official who is falsely accuse post of pedaling russian disinformation and many others in the media who echoed things like that without actually looking into what we have found and doing any reporting of their own they all need to eat, i'm sorry --

deal with i challenge no question about that. but the added burden of race and racism and discrimination, those two things are unique to moms of color. so that's what we're -- what we're testing. reporter: the 400,000 coming from the county won't go to mothers directly but will be used to help with job training and other support services. even so critics say this use of public funds is illegal and demoralizing. >> if you or someone who is not favor race it is discouraging your government pirlgs are saying you don't matter as much to us you don't count. and we're not going to consider you for this program. and it is i think it really is discouraging. it is discriminatory. >> county program comes on heels of another race based move in even son, illinois the chicago suburb voting to pay reparations to black residents in the form of housing grants first program of its kiengsd in the u.s. and a similar idea is being
debated in rochester, new york. mayor lovely warren has suggested leveraging revenues from legalized pot to pay reparations there. back here in county conservative groups say they're going keep an eye on this upcoming program that will benefit only mothers of color and say if a poor white mother feelings harmed by being excluded she could have legal standing to file a lawsuit in federal court. in south toledo, california, thanks. more mixed messaging from the cdc the agency says americanings fully vaccinated can travel but still need to take precaution so exactly what does it mean for those who have and have not been immunized against covid-19 one of our political contributors weighs in next. is hal. this is hal's heart. it's been broken.

well good news on the vaccine front as millions of americans are getting a shot each day. the nation is getting that much closer to herd immunity. the cdc said friday nearly one-third of americans have received at least one dose. and more than half of those people have been fully vaccinated infectious disease expert anthony to fauci says ths has good news for those traveling again. >> there are certain things that you don't have to do for example you don't have to get tested before and after you travel except if the destination requires it. and you don't have to quarantine yourself when you return from travel for example, internationally. jon: despite new travel guidance, public health officials are still urging those who have been fully vaccinated to keep taking precautions like wearing a mask and social distancing. let's bring in dr. janet medical officer and fox news medical contradict tore you have treated
an awful lot of covid patients yourself. doctor, what about that if you've been fully vaccinated, this is an argument that dr. fauci got into with ranked paul senator ranked paul on floor of the senate. why do you need to wear a mask after you've been vaccinated? >> well good evening jon. the reason why we want to wear a mask even after you've been vaccinated been at least two weeks sense last vaccine is because we've got to remember, for example, johnson & johnson is only 72% effective. moderna, pfizer 90% effective it can significantly protect you against symptomatic disease, and it can drastically reduce your risk of transmission to others. but it is not a hundred percent with johnson & johnson a 28% chance that you can pick up the veers and spread it to others so it is temporary and that's why they say when you're out in public if you're traveling, if you can't physical distance, then just wear your mask because we only have about 20% of americans that are fully vaccinated. though until we can get that
number higher, just continue to practice with this safety guidelines of physical distancing and wearing your mask until we can get more americans vaccinated especially with the variants that we see emerging the u.k. variant bra disel i can variant that are creating these spikes in some of the states like michigan, rhode island, new jersey, here in new york, as well we're seeing up nick number of cases most likely because of the variant. >> the moving average of, you know, 7-day covid cases back on march first was about 4.3% of the population. now it is about 4.9%. why is that if we're vaccinating so many people we've got a third of the country vaccinated, why is the number of cases on the rise? >> it is creeping up a little bit and this for several reasons. number one travel, we've got the spring break we've got easter, we've got memorial day coming up. the travel then the concern for the variant remember the u.k., variant the b117, 50% more
contagious and 60% more lethal so seeing increase of number of cases in certain parts of the countries and in younger population as well. and on top of that we're seeing almost a 30% increase in hospitalizations and those in the ages between 20 and 29. because of the variants that are emerging, so that's why it is important to continue to vaccinate as quickly as possible as many american as possible and that the same time wear your mask when you cannot physical distance until we can get numbers up. jon: i want to put ow you mention that u.k. variant i want to put on screen if we can get it up there. the numbers from the states that are most affected seeing the most of the u.k. variant. florida shows a little over 2300 cases, michigan at 1200, colorado at almost 900, california at 800 and massachusetts at 712. you said that that is -- very contagious and also very
much more impactful very often very much often fatal. >> that's why i think it is a great idea to expand vaccine eligibility to the younger population. i see in some states they're opening it up to age 16. if you're 16 years old pfizer is a vaccine that you can receive as early as 16 with moderna as early as 18 that's why support that we're expanding eligibility of the vaccine to the younger population because they are the ones who we're seeing it now, and they're ones who are spreading it. but if we can continue at the pace that we're going now with about 3 million vaccines daily and everyone try to get that number up, then we're going to be headed in the right direction hopefully reverse the upward trajectory that we're seeing in in over half of the country right now. >> we vaccinated or at least -- at least a third of the country roughly 31% has at least one dose of the vaccine. how much more how many more people do we need to vaccinate
before you reach that herd immunity that basically causes the virus to die out because no it can't find any hosts. >> well historically we want about 70 to 90% of the population to have antibody protection. and you get that either with vaccine or have having naturallily acquired disease. but i think it is important to not just focus on vaccinating americans i think it is also important to have a protocol in place where we can potentially thoroughly identify and detect disease in community so that we can prevent any outbreaks like we see for example in michigan or rhode island, or in new york, we want to prevent outbreak we want good surveillance we want good viral genome sequencing and we want to continue vaccinating as many as we can. i think collects this will help us get to concept of herd immunity a lot faster. jon: i want to put up a slide of trials underway young people many this country. pfizer has been shown to be 100%
effective for children ages 12 to 15. under -- 12 pfizer vaccine is still in trials. moderna -- is also in trials for under 12 and 12 to 17 years old but you're saying that it is -- the vaccines are proving to be effective among younger people and that's going to be a necessary part of the program. >> yeah. i think so jon. you know kids, children they do contribute to the pandemic and they play a role in herd immunity as well we have 4 million children we know that have tested positive for covid although they not get sick they can become sick and they can transmit virus as well they can transmit it to their parents, to their siblings. so they do contribute i think it is a good idea to get the children vaccinated. especially teenagers, they tonged transmit the virus more so like adults do. now under age of ten not as much but between ages of 12 and 15 pfizer found that every one of the clirn that received actual
vaccine did not pick up covid. so those were really encouraging findings i'm hoping within the next few weeks -- we'll get fda approval and maybe even start vaccinating young folks in the summer time so they'll be ready for school back in the fall. glonl that will be a welcome relief for million of parent in this country. doctor, thank you. >> thank you, jon. jon: fema funding is being used to house the homeless in major american cities. it started under trump administration when the pandemic began, but now the biden administration is expanding the plan. and springer explains. >> in the year before covid hit homeless in seattle jumped more than 6% in nearly 12,000 people. according to the latest report from housing urban development, most are intense on sidewalks and city parks. some are just a few feet from a middle school. the problem is only gotten worse during the pandemic, despite
billions of dollars being spent by big cities to move thousands of homeless people from group shelters to their own hotel rooms. it is a program started by president trump run by fema, and now being expanded by president biden. >> moving people who were experiencing homelessness who are high risk of contracting and becoming very ill or dieing from the disease -- it is -- it is the right thing to do for the community, for the country and for the individual. >> biden invoke staff to increase reimburse from the 75% to 100% and extend it through the end of september. officials in san francisco which is spending nearly 20348 million dollars on hotel call it game changer to save city tens of billions of dollars but critics say reresponding to national disasters, trying to solve long problems. >> the problem existed long before covid ravaged the country.
federal government shouldn't be addressing problems that they have had for many, many years. >> we're not straightforward with the american taxpayer when we -- when we say we're responding to pandemic and many other things that have nothing to do with covid-19. >> in addition to the fema reimbursement program, the 1.9 trillion dollar american rescue plan gives cities $5 billion too spend on homelessness, and many are advocates that money be used to buy hotels to turn them into permanent homeless shelters. in seattle dan springer, fox news. >> prosecutors issue an arrest warrant for the owner of a truck involved in yesterday train crash in taiwan. new details on the investigation, next when we look at the stories from around the globe. ♪ ♪i've got the brains you've got the looks♪ ♪let's make lots of money♪
