9:01 am
i'm eric sean, more and more lawmakers are calling for tougher action by the administration. president biden, though, defending this even though they rolled back some trump administration policies. critics are citing the person that the president has put in charge of the situation and that's vice president harris. >> she's in denial. president biden, he's in denial as well as as a matter of fact, she laughed at it the other day when a reporter asked her, are you going to get down to the border and that sarcastic laugh of hers, she doesn't plan on going down to visit the border because i think she would certainly get an earful from border patrol and many of those communities that live around that border that are -- are around that border because they see the humanitarian crisis. they see what's happening. eric: the biden administration, though, says it has a plan and taking action. alex hogan live at the customs

and border protection center in donna, texas with the very latest there. hi, alex. alex: hi, eric, happy easter, people around the world will be spending holiday with family but dozens of children in the center behind me will still be alone. there are 4,000 kids in this center that initially wasment for 250 people here in donna, texas. the children are split into 8 pods and separated by plastic dividers with more than 500 children in each of them. most are forced to sleep on the ground with gym mats and foil blankets. the administration says their approach is more humane than that of former president donald and the real problem stems elsewhere. >> the real crisis is in central
9:03 am
america. the root causes of immigration are and we need to help deal with that kind of violence and those economic problems. alex: critics especially along the border says the white house needs to do more. arizona governor doozy spoke about the talk he had with homeland security alejandro mayorkas. >> he tried to sign off by saying to me, the border is secure and i pushed back and i said, mr. secretary, that type of communication will ring with complete unauthenticity in the state of arizona. the border is not secure. alex: by law, children are not supposed to stay in these federal facilities for more than 72 hours but we know that only about 200 or 300 children are leaving at least this center every day. the white house is trying to open up new facilities and from we can see here, there's more
9:04 am
construction under way. this is a mile-long stretch on the property in the donna facility. we can see bulldozers and tractors that are setting up new tent facilities. we did try to go in. journalists are not allowed to go in and they didn't tell us specifically where the children are on this facility, however, again as we have heard from the administration, they are trying to find new ways and more space for them as we move forward. eric. eric: all right, alex, thanks so much in donna, texas even though the president says the border is closed, the ports do say that families are being released into the country with dates for their asylum hearings. meanwhile coming up, we will talk a lot more about this with mayor chris riggs of arizona, he's declared a state of emergency in the city because of the surge. he's warned that small city does not have a hospital or shelter that can handle the migrants and come summer, officials say they fear they may be finding bodies because of the increase. we will be talking to the mayor coming up on fox news live, arthel.

arthel: eric, thank you, tributes pouring in for fallen capitol police officer williams billy evans who died after he was struck by a car friday at a barricade outside the capitol complex. the 18-year veteran of the force being remembered as a dedicated father who was living his dream. we are also learning more about the suspect who believe shot and killed. lauren blanchard on capitol hill with the very latest, lauren. reporter: hi, arthel, well, it is quiet after friday's deadly attack. take a look at this. a small memorial is growing for the officer. flowers left behind for officer william evans, officer evans was an 18-year veteran of the capitol police. evans knew early on he want today protect the u.s. capitol. >> he want today make sure those who legislated had the protection they needed to make this country go forward and he
9:06 am
paid that price that no one should have to pay. >> the suspect 25 year old noah green shot and killed by police when he jumped out of the car with a knife after ramming officers into a capitol security gate. green appears to have acted as a lone wolf. green indicated he was a follower of the nation of islam and long-time leader louis farrakhan and investigation is on going. call on congress by the union that represents capitol police officers to once again beef up security and force numbers but so far lawmakers have not been on board with that move. >> i think we need to be looking at what our needs are. we need to be thinking about how we are gathering intelligence as it relates to the capitol and i think that's more important than the size of the force. reporter: and the flags as you
9:07 am
can see remain as half staff for officer evans. this is the second time a capitol police officer has died in the line of duty just this year, arthel. arthel: lauren blanchard, thank you very much for that report, eric. eric: well, arthel, president biden's $2.2 trillion spending plan does face some challenges on capitol hill. not only do many republicans call it a gigantic tax hike but to moderate democrats are also raising concerns over the eye-popping price tag as the country's deficit increases, it exploded you know during the last administration. the administration and president say it will put millions of members back to work as they recover from coronavirus pandemic. here is brian. >> we have a long way to go. what our plans says is let's keep the economy going and more job creation. that's a really good thick for the economy but also think to
9:08 am
the longer term of where the investment that is we could make that would really drive not just more job growth but better job growth. eric: mark meredith is standing by on the north lawn of the white house with more on the administration plans. hi, mark. mark: eric, good afternoon. happy easter. president biden is calling on congress to think big and spend big when it comes to funding a project that will be tied to infrastructure, housing, social programs. 2 trillion-dollar spending bill being presented has a lot under consideration including 600 billion for transportation. a lot of money going to housing and schools in government facilities as well as power infrastructure. >> this is a once in a lifetime moment. i don't think in the next 50 years we are going to see another time when we have this combination of a demonstrated need, bipartisan interest, widespread impatience and very supportive president who is committed, by the way, not just to the infrastructure itself, but to the jobs we are going to create. >> some democrats want the white
9:09 am
house to spend even more money, more than $2 trillion. mean time republicans say they're against this idea because of what it could mean for the impact on future job growth with the economy. there was some new job numbers that came out on friday indicating where the economy stands with 916,000 jobs added last month. the unemployment rate taking down from pandemic highs. >> what the president proposed this week is not an infrastructure bill. it's a huge tax increase for one thing and it's a tax increase on small businesses, on job creators in the united states of america. mark: now president biden says he's going to invite republicans from capitol hill here to the white house to talk about his plan but we have not been told yet who is going to be invited or when and the president is spending his easter holiday at camp david and due back here tomorrow and eric, we know that he will hold one event looks on wednesday tied to the spending bill. eric. eric: mark, thank you so much.

arthel: florida governor ron desantis declaring state of emergency in one county easter sunday, hundreds of people in manatee county, millions of gallons of toxics, possibly radioactive material from an old fertilizer plan, officials warns the pond retaining wall could collapse at any time. arthel: stretches of highway near the leak have been close today traffic as crews work to control the leak and secure the
9:18 am
pond. eric: imagine that after a year of pandemic shutdowns are finally able to enjoy a meal at your favorite restaurant when protestors suddenly start smashing the place. that's what new york city police is happening. demonstrators raging against the capitalist system targeting diners and vandalizing eateries in new york city. the exclusive upscale bar bought restaurant and nearby japanese spot were set upon by rowdy demonstrators. they are calling for social justice, breaking windows and causing other damage. police say there was -- there were no arrests in this attack. suspects on parole behind two vicious street attacks in the city, one on an asian american woman you see there and another on a jewish family strolling with their infant in a park, well, they say they were out on parole. critics say the increase in
9:19 am
crime and lawlessness in the big apple and other cities is a result of breakdown in the criminal system. republican candidate for new york city mayor. >> when i become mayor, you're not going to have this kind of crime in the streets in the subways and you will not have ethnic racial attacks. we are going to return funding to the police. we are going to refund the police and allow the police to go out there and do the job that they were trained to do which right now they can't because they are handcuffed. eric: new york city councilman joe borelli, emergency management, councilman welcome. nypd post videos and more and more of them, diners out on weekend night, this happened last thursday and these protestors swarm the restaurant. they go inside with bull horns and they're chanting and in some cases patrons have been injured when they are just out for a quiet evening. what is this happening? >> and they really are only
9:20 am
turning away people that are probably progressive, if they're eating in fancy upscale manhattan restaurants and being turned away from the causes that the social justice warriors purport to be spousing. i don't know how one can call yourself a social justice warrior when you're actually destroying the property and employment location of people who have been struggling for an entire year. it's so sad, eric, but it's unsurprising what's going on in new york city after a year of devolving of our police department and our -- our criminal justice laws. eric: this comes as the new york city council has taken some what they call police reforms such as removing qualified immunity from officers. the supporters say this leads to a more police department and basically the police will be at a disadvantage, what do you think? >> well, they are. it's not just one particular law. you start two years which
9:21 am
reformed the bail law that put people back in the street and less officers than we did at our height years ago and ended immunity and placed criminal liability on them for doing as much as wrestling perhaps with the perpetrator. these are all the steps which alarm viewers is that this is what happened when you have one party rule at any city or state and the only solution to this unfortunately as curtis indicated, elect more republicans than democrats to office. if you don't want crime rising in your city, i would suggest pushing back on them as hard as you can. take my example, take your example and look at your own city. eric: democrats disagree on that issue. let's look at nationwide. crime is spiking. here in new york murders up nearly 12% since defunding
9:22 am
reform started. minneapolis up 46%. of course, they had the horrible situation of the killing of mr. george floyd as well as protests. in portland, up 270%. in chicago this weekend alone, 19 people, 19 have been shot this weekend and one fatally. how do cities get a handle on this, joe? can the genie be put back in the-- the bottle and get safety back on the streets and protections and security that urban dwellers have had recently? >> that's what we are seeing, devolving of police and police opportunities to intervene with suspects. we have the playbook. the playbook was done in new york city in 1990's under major giuliani and subsequently under mayor bloomberg. they had a proactive police department that used tools and tactics to go out there and make arrests and arrest people and be visible and be highly
9:23 am
problematic areas. we have basically -- we trained ourselves purposely. the democratic party and politicians in new york have purposely restrained our police department and they are shocked, they are shocked, eric, that hate crimes are rising because there's more opportunities that -- that systematic criminals, repeated bank robbers getting out on bail reform and go back to robbing the banks. we are not surprised that what the consequences are of these reforms but it just seems like only some of the progressives happen to be surprised. eric: well, the city officials would say that policies such as stop and frisk and other issues were discriminatory and unfairly targeting the minority community, but it's a fact that many of the minority communities were the ones suffering with the most crime. meanwhile, speaking of targeting that asian american attack that was caught on the surveillance video. there's the woman going to church and she gets kicked and
9:24 am
pummeled by the suspect. this suspect, brian elliot of 38 year's old, murdered his mother, con vic of murdering his mother, was let out on the streets with what's called life-time parole, joe, what is life-time parole and how do you monitor somebody for a lifetime? >> new york has decided to make parole laws and ability to release convicted criminals easy under the tenure of andrew cuomo. remember, it is him who appoints the overwhelming majority of members to the parole board. people that we should be trusting to make decisions whereas if you killed your own mother, perhaps there should be a very high standard of whether or not you should be returned to the streets. so, again, this is one of those scenarios where it's not surprising. the mayor of new york touted that we have the lowest population on rikers island. i would be happy for him, but
9:25 am
not corresponding to a reduction in crime and not corresponding to a reduction in this sort of street crime that opportunist like the hate crime perpetrators have used to do a horrible things to asian and jewish and many other new yorkers. eric: finally, rikers is the city jail. what should other cities do? what's your message, you know, to try -- how do you balance the legitimate needs and concerns of some with the other concerns about maintaining public safety? >> well, eric, you actually mentioned about stop and frisk and i think most republicans and most police officers even in new york would admit that the use of stop and frisk was becoming too much. it was coming to the point where, you know, people were being routinely stopped and frisked for almost no reason. now, that's a good reform. on the opposite end we ended units like the anticrime unit which used to go out and try to find gang members to stop and
9:26 am
frisk. so it's always the solution seems to be too extreme and the pendulum seemed to have swung too far back for our own good. eric: if you are in new york city and you see group chanting with the bull horn, you better get the check really fast and maybe call the police. councilman, good to see you, thank you. >> thank you. eric: arthel. arthel: thank you, hunter biden speaking out for the first time since his father became the president. hunter on a tour to promote his book on very public struggle with substance abuse but also getting questions of federal probe of final dealings overseas. details of all of that coming up next. plus a small town in arizona north of the u.s.-mexico border declaring emergency after migrants per transported there. reaction from the mayor straight

>> there's a current department of justice investigation into your finances. >> yeah. >> what is it about can you say anything more? >> i can't. i can say this that i'm cooperating completely and i'm absolutely 100% that at the end of the investigation that i will be cleared of any wrongdoing. eric: biden on federal investigation. the president's son sat down for a wide-ranging interview ahead of the publication of his new memoir, beautiful things. problems and struggling with addiction. he was asked as you heard about the investigations that he faces and those allegations that surfaced during the campaign. aishah hasnie on what he said. aishah: hunter biden appears to
9:32 am
be 100% clear on some things and other things not so clear including whether or not it was him that dropped off the now infamous laptop to that delaware repair shop. watch. >> and you didn't drop off a laptop -- >> no. >> to be repaired in delaware? >> not that i remember at all. at all. so we will see. aishah: last fall the new york post published emails from that laptop revealing alleged meetings set up between his father then vice president biden and an executive from the ukrainian company barisma. hunter devotes an entire chapter in his book to his relationship with that company writing, there's no question my last name was a credential but asked that he work with a u.s. law firm to ensure that he complied with ni corruption laws. in the cbs interview today hunter acknowledges that the laptop could be his but could also have been stolen or hacked. he also addresses his relationship with his brother's
9:33 am
widow, acknowledging that people, yes, were confused by it. >> to me it's not something that is difficult to explain because it came out of a -- a real overwhelming grief and that grief turned into a hope for a love that maybe could replace what we lost. and it didn't work. aishah: eric, he also addresses his serious addiction which is primary subject of his memoir including a 13-day vender and, of course, his father then vice president biden intervening to try to save his life, eric. eric: all right, that book called beautiful things. aishah, thank you. arthel. arthel: one city in arizona declaring a state of emergency over the surge in migrants
9:34 am
crossing the southern border. 60 miles from the mexico border. this as preliminary data suggests customs and border protection is on pace to have encountered more than 111,000 migrants along the u.s. border, the southern border there in march alone. right now we will bring in the arizona chris riggs, mayor riggs, thank you for joining us. i want you to tell us about the state of emergency that you declared last week. what prompted that? >> it was a total of 16 people, 6 from venezuela and one from chile. we basically have nothing to help the people. we have no resources, we have no ngo's. border patrol dropped them off and immediately left and we were left with trying to find shelter
9:35 am
for them, trying to find transportation to take them to the shelter. our insurance carrier will not let us use town vehicles to transport them, so we actually had to borrow two vans and from there myself, my wife and two volunteers were able to drive them to a shelter for -- so at least they have a roof over their heads and something to eat and after that realizing that we needed help and i wasn't getting it from the state, i wasn't getting it from the federal government, so the only other option was to declare state of emergency for the town to try to get some help in order to deal with these people and at this point, senator sinema and senator kelly have stepped forward and assured us that we will not be getting anymore drops here in gila bend. they are working very, very
9:36 am
toughly to ensure that that doesn't happen. even to the point that they are transporting them themselves. arthel: well, that was a lot there and i'm glad that you -- your state of emergency prompted you to get immediate action from your senators, so that's great, great, great. meanwhile, i know it's not over so i do want to find out from your vantage point, from your vantage point, you're 60 miles from the border, what's the most immediate fix in your estimation to stem the flow of migrants? >> the immediate fix would be to ensure that you get the border closed, into an area that border patrol for sure has a check with them to ensure that they are receiving the necessary help when they come to this country.
9:37 am
arthel: let me jump in just so -- so right now it's my understanding they -- these migrants are being, quote, received, they are being contained in these holding facilities, not the best situation as -- >> no. >> arthel: as has been reported. that's what's happening now. what do you think -- that doesn't seem to be working. we are showing pictures in the conditions that they consumer that's not working. what do you think should really be done to fix this? >> we are probably going to ensure that they remain in mexico until their asylum can come through. we probably need to send immigration judges down to the border directly so that they can meet with these people and process them quicker. arthel: okay, and i don't know if the judges are on the way or down there but it seems that you have some good ideas, again, because you are right there. do you think that you'll get a
9:38 am
chance or would you like an opportunity to meet with vice president harris when she goes down to the border? >> absolutely. i'd be happy to meet with vice president harris. arthel: great. great. that's what it's going to take, you know, everybody to work together to try to fix this issue there. >> absolutely. arthel: mayor, i really appreciate your time mayor riggs, thank you very much for joining us and good luck to you and your city. >> thank you. arthel: thank you. eric. eric: arthel, some are saying that major league baseball is being hypocritical after commissioner pulled the all-star game out of atlanta over georgia brian kemp's signing of the controversial election bill into law. critics including the governor himself where mlb is headquartered requires an excuse for absentee mail voting while they say the new georgia law does not, but others are taking issue with that law. christina coleman live with more on whether the all-star game is
9:39 am
going to strike out, hey, christina. christina: major league baseball pulled all-star game out of atlanta over georgia's new election rules. this is the best way to, quote, demonstrate values as a sport. but just the week the deal signed a deal with tencent, communist-backed company, one of china's largest tech firms and dropped nba games in 2019 after the former houston rockets general manager showed support for democratic activist protesting against beijing backed crack-down in hong kong. >> major league baseball, they don't want to go in georgia which has a pretty expansive early voting rules, now mandatory weakens thanks to this law but happy to do business in china which regularly persecutes people. christina: mlb is headquartered in new york, a state that has fewer early voting days than
9:40 am
allowed in georgia. new laws expanding early voting and shortens time for runoff elections and has new guidelines for mail-in voting. critics call the new rules voter suppression. major businesses like coke and delta condemning them meantime supporters of gop-backed legislation say laws are fair and will help improve voter confidence. despite the controversy, people on both sides of the i'll agree that pulling the all-star game out of atlanta is going to have a huge financial impact on local businesses. >> it's devastating. it's devastating to the city and devastating to many businesses, mine included. it seems very unnecessary, very punitive and counterintuitive to what we are trying to do by reopening. christina: major league baseball finalizing a new host game for
