early. brian: was it english. ainsley: it was not there was a translator. ainsley: welcome back from texas. brian: you will see in texas they are alarmed at this administration. they seem to be taking aim at texas i was able to spend a day with george p. bush and people in oil and gas who are worried about their future. ainsley: he might run for a.g.? brian: all but a done deal. no question that's his next target. steve: thank you for joining us on easter monday. 6:02 in the east. top story for the last number of weeks has been our crisis at the southern border. and through various ways we have been able to get images of what is going on regarding the children and the families. and there is reason they didn't want us to see them because the situation down there is dire. but, now when you take a look at the ice deportations and people who are being turned around, keep in mind, remember we told you that a couple of months ago
the biden administration announced 100 day moratorium on deportations. then, if ice is going to send somebody out of the country, unless they were a national security risk, they would have to actually, ainsley and brian, contact the front office in washington, d.c. and get an approval in writing to send somebody back. and they didn't for the most part. ainsley: it too much paperwork. by the time they finally get the paperwork and all the police reports, usually those people that they have apprehended are already let go into the united states. we are talking about people with some have criminal records. i was watching "fox & friends first" this morning and there was a thread was interviewed down in texas and she said i used to watch people come through my yard these illegal immigrants come through my yard in the morning when it was still dark outside. now we are seeing morning, noon, and night. they showed some compelling video we should get it an show it on our show of she's illegal immigrants going under her fence, cutting a hole in her fence. some of them jumping into her
backyard it looked like. brian: you mean the fence we paid for that's not being rebuilt? ainsley: looks like her backyard fence. brian: unbelievable. look at these numbers to steve's point on ice deportations. under trump november of 020 almost 6,000, december of 2020 almost 6,000. under biden, 5583. in february it drops to half that. keep in mind, too. looking at a march that's estimated that we have actually seen 171,000 migrants taken into custody along the border in march. and then you have 18,700 unaccompanied minors that number could be even greater. nearly double the 9450 minors from the month before. we have nowhere to put them. san diego facility, the convention center already maxed out. it could be maxed out some time today. and it's all because they said if you are an unaccompanied minor, can you stay. that's a go sign from the triangle countries and mexico this is your time to come to america.
when the facts of this story come out, it's going to be horrific. they are going to make sure it doesn't hit democrats by the time you hear about this horrific. barrasso and 1 other senators are not waiting for that they went and toured the facilities. they found a way to get on the inside and whether they got in there, they took some pictures and then this happened. >> well, we were told to delete the pictures, no one did. you have seen the video coming out of all of these kids crammed together under the foil blankets, huddling together and when you have 10% of them who are positive already, only allowed to be there for three days by law, you wouldn't want your own kids to be there for three minutes, but many are staying there for up to 10 tase. they are being tested the day that they leave and then those that have been tested positive are just kind of moved to one side of the courtroom. they have all been exposed and sent all across the country. that is the real tragedy of this. they are carrying it all around america. they are not being quarantined.
every one of them ought to be quarantined. ainsley: that is interesting. he said they are testing them as they are leaving and they separate them. they have already all been exposed at that point. and as you know, this virus doesn't really pop up. you don't show symptoms on 3 to 5 days afterwards on average. can woe pop the numbers up brian was. last month december of 2020 will look how many deportations 5735. now, look at the first full month under joe biden which was february of 2021, only 2500 or 2600 were deported at that point. so, more than double under trump in his last full month. and that's back in february when we look at the biden numbers. it's only getting worse because they are getting that message as you all were saying come on over, we will let you, in and once you step foot on american soil you basically can stay. steve: sure, brian and ainsley, to ainsley's earlier point about the coronavirus out of pa was so
barrassowhat is interesting abot is the fact that they do not test the people coming into the government facilities, they only test them when they leave the government facilities if they are going to another government facility. so they know which side of the auditorium to put the people in. which, when you look at the numbers, it clearly has become a super spreader event down at those particular detention centers. the thing about the hypocrisy regarding what's going on right now, is remember all the people a couple of years ago who were talking about the same facilities, with the chain linked enclosures they were referring to trump's concentration camps. now those people are oddly quiet. but it is much worse now because it is all happening during a pandemic. if the number one goal of this administration truly is to stop the flow of coronavirus, and to stop the spread, and to get us back to good health, this is a lousy way to do it by letting as
john barrasso just said these people who are infected just scatter throughout the country. ainsley: he also said, senator barrasso went on to say it's ironic. so much irony here that president biden want vaccine ids yet not looking for ids for illegals coming over. the testing is not what is he requiring all of us to do pipe brian they put out law to tighten up voter restrictions after the pandemic. it's been totally misconstrued and now finally the lawmakers, including governor kemp are coming out and trying to straighten it out. it is being totally misconstrued and lied about by beginning and not ending with the president of the united states. when he said it was jim crow on steroids, really, dating back to 1877 when lawmakers implemented a poll tax requiring would be voters to pay a fee? they're talking about a thing where you actually made people take a literacy test before voting. you are talking about a vote -- a sb 202 that all they do is say
you have 17 days of early voting. when it comes to voting locations, it doesn't end at 5:00 it. closes at 7:00. got to be open at least 7 hours. only thing they are saying that's different you can have no excuse absentee balloting. write down tax i.d., take a picture of your license. get a free i.d. from the state. can you send a utility bill in just so we know who you vote for, who you are voting for and you are actually belong and are qualified as a voter in georgia? it is totally misconstrued. didn't stop major league baseball for some crazy reason being absolute cowards pulling the game out of atlanta. why don't you just pull the braves out of atlanta and, by the way, you probably don't like texas' reforms it's similar. time to get the rangers and astros out. cecilia on the council of economic advisers chairperson, she talked about the economic impact doesn't really seem to care. >> it's a little early to judge what the economic impact will
be. but, they have a right to vote with their feet and to express their dissatisfaction with the laws. >> there is undoubtedly going to be a cost. i think that was the point that the major league baseball was trying to make. major league baseball will, however, move its game and workers at another place will benefit. you know, that is exactly the message that major league baseball was trying to send. these companies have the opportunity to vote with their feet and they are using their economic power to express their dissatisfaction. steve: so, what is curious about this, you know, at the all-star game to go to the will call window to pick up your tickets, you actually have to present i.d. isn't that delicious irony? ainsley: they are just deciding when it's right for them. steve: when you look at what they did in the state of georgia, they actually expanded the ability to vote. you know, do you have to show some i.d. or prove how are if
you are going to request a ballot, an absentee ballot? absolutely. and so do a number of other states. but, nonetheless, brian, you are absolutely right. there has been a lot of political propaganda. one thing that this movement has done down in georgia is the democrats have united a fractured republican party. brian: they have. steve: now the republicans are all together saying hey, wait a minute, that is not true. ainsley: good point. steve: the independents down in georgia are going, wait a minute, they're actually making it easier to vote so what is the big stink about all of this stuff? brian: read it. they should have read it. >> steve: well, listen, brian kemp, the governor down there, you know, for a while, it looked like he was going to face a primary challenge. that probably now is unlikely. because now president trump, who had said that brian kemp has got to go, president trump sounds like he is on his side. the president, former president has called for a boycott of major league baseball and has warned coca cola and delta both
based down in georgia that they could be mexico. ainsley: some of these legislators are say nothing more coke products in our offices. joe biden and his administration looked at all the new laws in georgia and though thought holy cow, we are going to lose votes. democrat -- now everyone is going to have to show an i.d. we are not going. brian: cheat? ainsley: slip through the cracks and cheat. when you have a mail-in ballot now you have to prove with your bill or license or i.d. who you are and so i think they said, well, let's find some things that we can make a problem so that we can protest this and we can make a big deal out of it. and that's when joe biden says, you know what? this says poll could say close at 5:00, the governor said that's not going to happen. polls have the right to stay open until 7:00. they're even adding saturday voting as well. get more opportunities to vote in the state of georgia. steve: that's why the president got four pin smoke gross. ainsley: president says they will close at 5:00 and you won't
be able to get further at 5:00. like anyone cares about that. that's what they're sticking. to say he did get four pinocchios and chris christie said is he lying. >> joe biden has broken his own rule and now is he lying to the american people. is he lying about this bill. is he lying to the american people about it to cause the raging fire he said he was going to put out. i'm very disappointed. brian: he went on to say about the water thing. you can have refreshments there. you just cannot do will election eeringing you don't want to walk up and give water with a trump shirt on. i wonder why he keeps saying the president over and over again a lifetime achievement why jen psaki keeps saying a lie over and over again. do you know what it does? it hurts the country. now, if a republican wins that state. they are not changing. republican wins that state look you changed the law.
if democrat wins republican also say they still found a way to cheat. this creating doubt in election system foundation of our democracy. everything they complained about trump, joe biden is doing on steroids. this is not close to sick. it is not close to jim crow on steroids. and that's what i found so unbelievable. thankfully the pga is not leaving they're condemning. the tour's championship to eastlake has helped our partners transform neighborhoods into healthy. end the cycle of intergenerational poverty. the benefits that have led to changes would not continue if we simply walked a way from those in need. have any of the other companies read it? number two walked to baseball fans looking so forward to the season starting although small percentages can get in the stands outside of texas are not watching now. they are outraged about this move. and i don't know what this commissioner was thinking about
now he has brought politics in what a way that i didn't think was possible. >> ainsley: made a promise to that group. people have been getting their hotel rooms ready and businesses ready for the crowds come in. i heard lawrence jones say earlier that atlanta is the black wall street. he said this is going to hurt minority businesses. will. brian: stacey abrams doesn't want the boycott. steve: ilhan omar does want the boycott. ultimately what they are thinking about big play here ♪ jessly about georgia and not about the u.s. capitol. keep in mind, there are dozens of other states that are considering some sort of voting reform in the wake of how we voted during the pandemic this is a brush back pitch don't go do far or we are going to come after you. brian: so big of a brush back
pitch. steve: brian, it's been so effective in georgia look at the fallout there. if you are in texas or arkansas or another state that is considering some sort of elections reform do we really want to go that far. brian: 34 states are going to pass something. ainsley: everyone called for election reform after everything that happened during the pandemic. and what's the big deal if you have to show an i.d. if you are an american to vote for people who have making decisions for all of us and spending our tax dollars. steve: so, anyway, a busy news day as you can see. right now it's 6:16 here in the east. we welcome back from vacation jillian. jillian: good morning, good to see you. steve: welcome back. if. ainsley: pretty in yellow. jillian: begin with this story. dozens of inmates shatter windows during a prison riot in st. louis. some of them demanding court hearings for their cases. >> we want court dates. jillian: court proceedings have been delayed any city due to the
pandemic. there are reports that some of the inmates were hurt. it's the second disturbance in two month. crews outside of tampa are trying to plug a leak in a reservoir containing millions ofs gallons of toxic weather wae water. ron desantis has declared a state of emergency and preparing for the worst case scenario. >> what we are looking at now is trying to prevent and respond to, if need be, a real catastrophic flood situation. jillian: more than 300 mommy's are in need of evacuation zones. jillian: the texas rangers opening at full capacity for its home opener today. fans will be required to wear masks except when eating or drinking. the rangers are the only mlb team to alou fans at 100 percent. it comes as the braves nationals famous was postponed due to covid. the nats have yet to play a game this season after four players tested positive.

smear on joe biden comes from the kremlin. that's been clear for well over a year now that they have been pushing this false narrative about the vice president and his son. >> when you put the combination of russia, giuliani, the president together it's just what it is. it's a smear campaign. steve: okay. so there you have got politicians and you have got actual journalists talking about how the "new york post" story that fox news as well covered that hunter biden had a laptop dropped off at a delaware fix-it shop and there was all sorts of bad stuff on it. that "new york post" and fox news story was all made up because it was part of russian disinformation fed to us through -- brian: that's why twitter and facebook had to ban it and ban it and freeze you out if you actually retweeted that story including kayleigh mcenany retweeted it. steve: that's why no one touched that story. they wanted to make sure joe biden got elected. nonetheless cbs sat down and did
a softball interview with joe biden's son hunter and they did eventually bring up the laptop thing. and as it turns out, well, it could actually be his. listen. >> was that your laptop? >> for real, i don't know. >> i know but you know. >> i really don't know is what the answer is. >> okay. you don't know yes or no if the laptop. >> i don't have any idea. i have no idea. >> so it could have been yours. >> certainly there could be a laptop out there was that stolen from me. there could be that i was hacked. it could be that it was was religions intelligence it. could be that it was stolen from me. ainsley: he talked a little about his drug addiction, too. being praised on social media for being open about that and coming out. he did in his book he is talking about dating his brother who passed away his wife and he went to president biden and he said well, he was -- he wasn't president at the time. but he pressed his dad to give a public approval of that relationship and his dad actually did.
brian: this is pretty amazing. number one he knows exactly that it's his laptop. it even had a beau biden foundation sticker on it. it was his laptop dropped off with all his personal information. there is no doubt about it. it could be russian disinformation with all your emails and your stuff that you handed off? this is unbelievable. by the way, what about the wisdom of putting out a book in the first year of your dad's presidency bringing all this up again? meanwhile, his brother is doing some crazy stuff out in florida with another law firm. does anyone in that family have any sense that they have a relative in the white house that this could damage? ainsley: why bring all this up again? brian: unbelievable. last year they had an intervention he was so hooked on crack, last year they had an intervention. details of his dad and what can i do and he said all i thought about was as soon as i let go of my dad i'm going to do more crack. that's what addicts do. this was only a year ago. why is he taking a bow now as if
it's in his rear view mirror when anyone know with addiction this is coming right back around? steve: just the fact that he admits that it certainly could be his laptop after so many prominent figures. brian: i don't think he admitted it. steve: he said it certainly could be. ainsley: could have been his. could have been hacked. might have been stolen he says. steve: the point is it was john brennan, former cia director along 50 other intel people said this is obviously russian information disinformation. brian: russian. steve: "the washington post" the fact checker poo pooed it and politico referred to it as russian disinformation. so the question is will those news outfits suddenly, you know, they paid a blind eye to it. now will they what could be on it? you know, we were wrong. don't hold your breath. brian: the fbi has it. why don't you tell it. ainsley: they have had it so
long. steve the fbi never reveals whether a they're investigating. brian: stuck on one page looking for a password. ainsley: didn't find anything wrong. brian: nothing wrong. let's see everything. i'm sure the pictures will be fantastic for the biden family when they get out. >> steve: let's see what happens. now hunter says that atlanta certainly could be his and that's a 180 because peter doocy asked joe biden of a he was elected president, do you think that the stories about hunter were a russian smear campaign and joe biden said yes, yes, yes. and then he referred to peter as a one horse pony but that's. ainsley: what was that phrase? brian: the other word is tony blens did. you do with a teal with tony bobulinski. steve: i'm sure it's in his book.

watch your tv right now. you can see what you can do and what you can't do. and it says what you can do eat in restaurants, watch movies in theaters, go bowling inside. shop in stores, work in offices, go to amusement parks, attend houses of worship. work out in gyms go to pools and attend outdoor events. what they can't do go to math class english science, history language class attend pe class outside. attend music and dance class in person and support emotional health. why was it important for you to get this message out and put it on twitter? >> we need to highlight what a preposterous situation we are in now in california. we were among the first states close our schools because of covid risks and at that point in time a year ago martha made sense. we thought that schools would be super spreaders. we have known for months that schools are safe places and we have opened our economy as covid rates are declined precipitously
in california, which is great. we have never had a mandate to reopen our schools. so as our economy is opened, as amusement parks and movies and restaurants are all open now, our schools remain closed. there is no requirement in california that the schools reopen. ainsley: the governor has said back in october his kids go private school so they are back in class. is he caught at french laundry. why do you think that he wants to open certain things but close our schools? why are amusement parks more important than our schools? >> well, i think he would like schools to open. it's just that he is not willing to expend the political capital to mandate that they open. he has given cash incentives to get schools to open. he put teachers in the front of the line for vaccinations. but that wasn't good enough. there are new demands by the teachers' unions, long standing labor grievances for subsidized child care and housing subsidies and shorter work days which are potentially all valid labor complaints but they shouldn't be
made on the backs of our children. and what we need to do, since the unions have basically refused to open k through 12 schools is to mandate that they reopen. we only have 8 weeks left in this school year. ainsley: does it all go back to money? they're going to make money from taxes on these amusement parks and movie theaters and things that are open. they are not going to make money on the schools. so why do they want to appease these unions? is it also going back to money because these unions, the teachers unions give these democrats money for their campaigns? millions for their campaigns. >> right. well, i think our economy is opening based on our covid rates. we have complex tier system that allows certain sectors of our economy to open based on daily case rates. and we have seen our covid rates really decline and so we have opened our economy. but, schools have been excluded from that while restaurants and bars have been allowed to open, schools are allowed to open but they are not required to open.
even though article 9 of california at a time constitution mandates the rights to unfettered access to education for kids, it hasn't been done even though we know it's safe and our covid rates tell that's we can do it. it is, i mean, there is certainly money in the politics. the pta, the california teacher's association has more than 300,000 members. they are -- make political contributions to gavin newsom. he does not want to lose their support. and kids are not voters and kids do not make political contributions. so there is not the same political pressure to open our schools as there has been to open our businesses. ainsley: dr. noble, thank you so much for taking time to come on our show this morning. >> thanks for covering this important issue. ainsley: you are welcome. we did reach out to governor newsom's office for a comment and we have not yet heard back. devastated by the biden administration's policies on climate change.

print. will: right. so the message is we will lie about your law. we will tell lies about you. we will attribute racist motivations to any attempt at the slightest protection for voter integrity even while you are expanding your voter access laws we will lie about you from start to finish and we know that corporate ceos are cowards and you will cave under the pressure of businesses like major league baseball pulling their games, events, promotions and money from your state. and do you know what, steve? they are right because corporate ceos have proven to be cowards and largely bent at the will, bent at the fear and threat of these types of activists. steve: but, ultimately, will, when corporations get involved in politics, with the polarized country, you are going to hack off half the country. i don't think that's good for the company. >> yeah, they are not being motivated by the bottom line. they are afraid. they are motivated by fear and losing corporate sponsors and
being afraid of being called a racist. it's the magic word in our society right now that forces anyone to bend to your will. anyone that looks at the georgia bill actually reads it or any of these provisions across the country knows it is not racist, it does not restrict voting access, it is not voter suppression. it is voter expansion. that's the truth. someone ought to tell the truth. steve: no kidding. it's actually easier to vote in georgia than it is in the state i live n new mexico -- new mexico.

the structure of florida being built by the state and using tax revenue to do it. now we are talking about an infrastructure bill in the united states that's going to cost the first of 2 the first one is going to cost about $2.2 trillion. you are not going to believe it. they are looking to pass it by memorial day. each nancy pelosi was saying hoping to get it by july 4th. hoping to get it passed by memorial day. steve: why wait. brian: find a way to do it without any republican support and it's all the pressure is going to be on the parliamentarian who is already getting pressure to say this is reconciliation worthy. steve: or, if the parliamentarian won't do that just overrule them. pete buttigieg the secretary of transportation says they have got to get going on this fast. because that's what the pose wants. listen. >> we know this is entering the legislative process hearing from both sides of the aisle. the president has a very open
mind but time is of the essence. we will look at these ideas on how to pay for it. look at ideas on where the investments ought to be, too. the president is hoping for major progress from congress before memorial day and we can't allow this thing to just keeping dragging on because the need is there today. steve: you know, so many republicans have said, you know, for an infrastructure bill there is not a lot of bridges and tunnels, actual infrastructure in it. when you take a look at the largest single line item, the number one most expensive thing is $400 billion over 8 years to create millions of healthcare jobs. and there is a big string attached by the white house. the white house fact sheet says the money will be tied to healthcare workers getting the ability to collectively bargain. in other words, they will have to union nice which suddenly puts them in whose pocket going forward for the next 8 years, that's right. joe biden, his plan is to be
president for 8 years. wouldn't that be handy? ainsley: raising the corporate tax 21% under president trump up to 28% under biden. what's interesting is that first bill, the covid relief bill only 9% went to covid relief. this one we are reading anywhere between 5 and 25% will actually go to infrastructure to your point. brian: right. 589 billion for workforce development. 400 billion for home and community based care for elderly and disabled. yeah, it's an important thing, how is that infrastructure? 650 billion for broad band i think that should be. then they have green energy and water upgrades and they have retrofitting homes and buildings. to, what, make the windows smaller, make them green friendly. steve: that's the green new deal, brian. brian: joe biden was the moderate that can get elected nobody with those severe left wing views would have gotten elected. but, if you pretend to be moderate and go ahead and implement those left whipping programs there is nothing can you do. one of those things that land
commissioner with george p. bush here what he is said what he saw in that bill and how it effect the states. >> a lot of people didn't like president trump's attitude. they didn't like some of his tweets. and they probably liked his policies. but now you are seeing 60 days, 90 days, 120 days in the different america they have and the difference in policies. do you think they are realizing how good they had it. >> absolutely. i think america is waking up saying we didn't sign up for this. this is not part of the package that biden promised. what you see in terms of the stimulus plan very small percentage devoted to actual cody relief. now we are looking at this infrastructure bill our estimate shows only 7% devoted to roads and highways and actual infrastructure. 400 billion for home care and community care. give me a break. this is false advertising. i think the american people are waking up to it. steve: well, roy blunt, who is a republican senator from the great state of missouri, he said yesterday, that republicans
could get on board with an infrastructure bill if it was closer to $615 billion. brian: absolutely. steve: then you could have buy in from the republicans if the white house would promise that they would pay for it another way other than, to your point, ainsley, than raising the corporate taxes up to close to 30%. put republican plan right now at this point is to, if they're going to go through with this $2.2 trillion bill to sit on the sidelines so that the democrats are saddled with those tax rate increases and a government spending spree like we have never seen. ainsley: it's so expensive. remember they were up in arms when president trump wanted to spend i think it was 200, 300 billion. enough to they want to spend trillions of dollars on this. brian, that was a great interview. tell the folks at home what you were telling us during the commercial break about how the different states, federal land what's. brian: oh, just real quick on oil and gas and will have a little bit later just so you
know if you are a texas company can you invest in other states. so what they did is a lot of people in west texas, they go in place like new mexico and when you say there is no more federal drilling and exploration wyoming and new mexico are full of federal land, 35% even more in wyoming. it isn't just a minor pause. you basically have stopped the industry. do you know who high fives? russia and opec. i never thought that was in america's best interest. but that's for a little bit later in the show. steve: and more with the land commissioner coming up at 8:25 i do believe. ainsley: said probably going to run for a.g. more to come. brian: no question. steve: meanwhile, let's talk about it looks as if there is a glimmer of light out in california. the teachers are apparently ready to return to work but, and it's a big but. they say we still need some sort of free healthcare. ainsley: child care. steve: child care. thank you very much. in san diego, in san jose and
sacramento, they have approved bringing the teacher's children into the classroom. in los angeles what they're saying we will go to the classroom but first we have got to stay at home until we are given the money to pay for child care. so you have got to subsidize our child care, which they say was a big problem even before and a lot of parents are going, wait a minute i work at a grocery store i'm a frontline worker or i'm in healthcare and nobody made those kind of deals for me. they see that it is completely uneven. ainsley: this is mya daniels, she is a los angeles i couldn't know find teacher and she has this online petition calling on the school board to offer support. she want them to pay for the child care. yes, we know healthcare and essential workers have faced these challenges all year; however, a competition to the bottom is not in any of our best interest. we do not want anything, we don't believe everyone is
entitled to employer support for children and families. so, first they wanted to be able to bring their children to work. and the union said and the businesses said yes, you can do that bring your kids to work. they can zoom or they can do their online classes from the office. that's fine since you don't have child care at home. and now they are saying and taking it a stepping further and saying we want our child care paid for. if you ask parents there, they are saying oh my gosh, we were so close to reopening and now there is something else that they are requesting. steve: there is always something else. ainsley: always another hurdle. the parents are giving up and saying we don't even know if this is ever going to happen. brian: by the way it's already april. usually school wraps up in june. i believe and you would know better, ainsley. don't they get paid or as much as every state in the union? think about south carolina? think about florida and how much they get in california. ainsley: if you are a union teacher you tend to make more. i don't know all of this. i know in my family my mom was a teacher for 33 years.
my sister has been a teacher for 23 or 24 years. they are not unionized. so, they get paid a small salary but they do get health benefits and state benefits when they retire after x amount of years and that's wonderful. that's been helpful with my mom with what she has gone through with her healthcare. but, in new york, the teachers make, i want to say they make on an average maybe 30,000 in south carolina, depends on if you have your masters or board certified. up in new york i am hearing y'all would know better six figures, right, at least 100,000. steve: in some cases that certainly is the case in new jersey where i live. ainsley had a great interview with jeanne noble associate professor of emergency medicine out in california. and she put together it was a tweet? ainsley: she did. steve: showed what teenagers in oakland california and san francisco can and cannot do. so, ainsley, i will tell you what, you read what the teenager can do and i will do what they
cannot do. ainsley: they can he'd in restaurants. >> they can't go to math class. >> they can watch novembers theater. steve: they can't go to english class. ainsley: they can go bowling inside. steve: they can't go to science class steve: so there is a lot you can do but there's a lot you can't. brian: yeah, california a mess. this governor something recalled on top of that. so, we will see where that. ainsley: plus his kids are in school. brian: right. his kids are in private school. all right. ainsley: we have a soundbite from that interview. steve: we do. brian: do you have it with you. ainsley: dr. jeanne noble. pick it up out of my bag. steve: i have the app. >> he is giving cash incentives
to get schools to open. he put teachers in the front of the line for vaccinations. but that wasn't good enough there are new demands piatt teachers' europes, long-standing labor grievances for no subsidized child care and shorter workdays which are all potentially all valid labor complaints, but they shouldn't be made on the backs of our children, the california teacher's association has more than 300,000 members. they are -- make political contributions to gavin newsom. and kids are not voters. and kids do not make political contributions. so there is not the same political pressure to open our schools as there has been to open our businesses. steve: so for a while it was we are not going to go back to school until they change the ventilation. and then we are not going to go back to school until we get vaccinations and now it is we are not going to go back to school in some cases until we get subsidized child care.
ainsley: when the unions give you millions of dollars to get rio elected you do what they say not what they are doing. brian: big checks to all these schools where is that money? should be until you open you don't get a dollar. that's not going to be the way it is. ainsley: guess who pays the price. brian: the kids. steve: the kids absolutely. texas rangers expecting a full house at today's home opener in texas. brian: do you think they will get it? filling the stands to full capacity is this indeed 2021. ainsley: how exciting is this? dan godwin from our fox affiliate down in dallas is he live at globe life field with what we can expect. hey, dan. >> good morning, guys. yes. the texas rangers are in indeed doing something this afternoon that no other major league teams are doing. they will be playing their home opener before a full house. the rangers think they may well have a sell-out for this afternoon's game against the toronto's blue jays. the team says when texas governor gregg abbott lifted all
restrictions on capacity for texas businesses, they decided to go ahead and sell all of the seats for this venue, a little more than 40,000 fan also still be required to wear masks when they are in the stadium except when they're eating or drinking. and social distancing will be required when fans are at the concession stands, walking around the concourse, the perimeter of the field and when they're entering the stadium. there will be plenty of hand hand sanitizer and all transactions in the stadium going to be cashless. the team says the retractible roof on this new stadium will be open today and whenever it's not raining for the forefirst few months of the season. going forward, the team says it will be selling as many tickets for home games this season as the public wants, but crowd size is going to vary widely after we get past today's home opener. reporting live at globe life field, arlington, texas, back to
you guys. brian: we are so jealous. all capacity unbelievable. thanks so much, dan. appreciate it. steve: progress. brian: let's hope. i was at a knicks game with a thousand people it might have as well been empty. ainsley: it was good to be there. brian: i had to whisper sometimes during time-out so they could hear each other. ainsley: jillian upstairs with headlines. jillian: let's begin with this story. the head the capitol police warning the deadliest attack could be exodus. the force is already struggling with staffing adding, quote: i have had many younger officers confide with me they're actively looking at other agencies and departments right now. officer billy evans died after he was rammed by a car. suspect noah green was shot dead. his family told "the washington post" they believe he was mentally ill due to head trauma from playing football. in a fox news exclusive, we are learning what a missing

schumer and fauci and whitmer and newsom and the whole -- they take this same playbook and when i was in congress it became as clear as day. they take a crisis. they spin it up. they sell it to the media. the traditional media plays along with it. think about the obama-biden stimulus. $787 billion. less than 10% went to roads, bridges and highways. $1.9 trillion stimulus, guess what? less than 10% goes to actually fight the coronavirus. now they have another stimulus bill. oh, it's going to be about infrastructure, less than 10%. do you see the pattern here? they do it on guns, they do it on religion. we have a whole chapter about how they are going to steal elections. rigging elections for a generation. they have been planning this stuff for years and that's what we illuminate in the book. steve: so the book, you can pick it up in your store, tomorrow can you preorder it right now. they never let a crisis go waste. plus as if that is not enough,

dollars on local accommodations, transportation, entertainment and recreation. this would have been a big boost to cobb businesses and helped with recovery efforts after the covid-19 pandemic. ainsley: cobb county says that price tag is somewhere in the ballpark, no pun intended actually pun intended of $100 million, that's how much they stand to lose here. joining me now is alfredo ortez the executive director of the jobs creator network jacob shepard cobb county chairman. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> good morning, ainsley. >> when you hear that and hear what cities have made in the past, for instance k4r50e68d in 2019, 56 million. washington, d.c. in 200,168,000,000. miami the year before 70 million. san diego 80 million. that has to just leave a pit in your stomach considering you work in tourism. >> yeah. it absolutely does. you know, and, ainsley, representing small business owners across the country and especially here in georgia, of
course, they are barely making it out of the coast crisis out of the pandemic and now they are faced under the biden administration with potentially higher taxes, a higher minimum wage, more red tape and regulations and now this. i mean, this was an opportunity that my understanding and i'm glad you had the commissioner on as well is goings to cost upwards of $100 million of economic damages and impact to the state. these small business owners especially in cobb, i mean, a lot of these are minority owned businesses that are really looking forward and desperately needed this kind of revenue instream. and all because quite frankly there was a misinterpretation or understanding or outright lie of a law passed here in georgia on voting right. the about the line that law makes it easy to vote and hard to cheat. now we have ceos that quite frankly are taking that and perpetuating these myths or lies quite frankly that that led to the pull out of the mlb.
very disappointed. i expect that out of politicians and political talking heads and operatives like joe biden or stacey abrams but i just dent expect that out of our ceos and corporations that i think should be held to a higher standard and need to be held accountable because they owe it to the public to speak to the truth. ainsley: jason it comes town to voter i.d. tough show your i.d. to vote. signature verification if you are voting in person or if you are mailing in your ballot. what's unfair about that? that seems just like common sense. >> if does to me common sense approach to keep the ballot safe. if you vote in georgia you need to be ensured that your vote is going to count and no one is going to try to steal your vote. the common sense approach that really secures the election for everyone, republicans, democrats and independents. this bill has been so maligned with disinformation and misinformation campaign by stacey abrams, the president, and democrats and allies in the media that these ceos are basically making decisions on a
falsehood. mlb should be interested in stealing the bases not supporting stealing votes. ainsley: that's right. if you went to that game you would have to show your picture i.d. to pick up your tickets at will call. tough show your picture i.d. when you walk into joe biden's house in washington, d.c., the people's house. so, i don't understand why you hunt have to show your i.d. when you are voting just so we have voter integrity and we also have competence in our election results. guys, thank you so much. i'm sorry you are losing mlb did you want to say one more thing, alfredo. >> what did the voters of georgia say "the atlanta journal constitution" asked voter i.d. end of january 75% of those actually polled supported an, in fact, two out of every three black voters support it and 90% of people making under $25,000 right, the two very groups that supposedly stacey abrams is all worried about support voter i.d. so, there is no reason why the mlb should have pulled out.
we deserve an apology and quite frankly we ask the mlb to reverse their decision. >> exactly. ainsley: maybe they will. pga is sticking by their guns they are staying. >> good for them. >> thank you ashley, good morning. ainsley: you are welcome. coming up with migrant facilities overrun and border patrol overworked, the pentagon is now approving a third military base to house migrant children. congressman darrell issa is begging cbp officers not to quit their jobs. he going to join us next. before nexium 24hr, anna could only imagine a comfortable night's sleep

officers not to quit. california congressman darrell issa joins us now. congressman, i would feel there will be a need to express appreciation for them but do you get the indication there is going to be a mass exodus soon? >> oh, there already is. we are seeing is anyone who can retire is retiring. many are applying for other federal jobs. it's a demoralizing time and it's only going to get worse. you know, every time they find these remote facilities, that's more people within the system. within, you know, the most challenged systems which border patrol and ice that find themselves basically guarding people that shouldn't be in the country, certainly shouldn't be sitting on old retired world war ii military base re-purposed to hold these people and not since the haitian boat lift have we
seen this kind of volume of people being placed on military bases. steve: sure, now, as you know, congressman, it's all hands on deck down there. they need everybody they have got in the border patrol but then at the same time, the directive comes out from the federal government last week hey, anybody in federal government who would like to volunteer and go and care for some of the children and things like that, we could use you down there. so, are that just speaks to the fact that it is a crisis, but they are not looking for people trained in border patrol, it's kind of like we will just take anybody. we will just take a body to come down and stand next to these people. >> well, you know, it doesn't take a trained border patrol agent to basically say come on, get in the bus, and let's move you into america. and that's what's beginning to happen. the border patrol, with a rare exception of some high valued targets and a few recognized drug people for the most part they are, asked to be part of a welcome mat.
there is no question at all. i have been at the border. by the way i have been at camp robert and you want to talk about an old base. it's an old base. but, you know, basically what's happening is under president president trump. [alarm] >> under president trump. steve: we have to go? brian: that sound like an emergency. >> no, under president trump, there was all this complaint about how we were using the national guard. well, you ain't seen nothing yet. roberts and the further use of federal troops is going to only continue to spin out as we probably will exceed 200,000 so-called refuse fees in refugf migrants coming north. caravans that are absolutely forming to come north that are going to dwarf anything that we have seen before.
ainsley: congressman, thank you for everything you are doing out there. keep an eye on it and keep us informed. i know we are seeing this in the police departments, too. they are worried about getting killed on the job and being falsely accused and getting sued. some of them are doing early retirement as well. thank you for all that you do. >> a tough time. steve: now you can call that person back.

that. that's in new york. but picks up where new york does. >> when they decided to reimagine it, then crime is going out of control. shootings happened, people being stabbed. can't go on a subway anymore, look, brian, no one has been more outspoken against when justice needs to happen. when people's civil liberties are violated. and, unlike some people, i'm consistent on the issue. i oppose the state when they abuse your power. whether it's law enforcement or overregulation in communities. but, it comes to a point where government's first role is to protect its people and right now the communities aren't safe and so something has to be done, an alternative has to be presented to the people. no one wants to not be able to walk the street or their kids to be able to walk the school. it's happening in this city and seattle. track it now, it's not just, you know, are a violence issue. it's a drug epidemic that are in these communities, homelessness crisis. it all overlaps. it's one big cluster you know

this easter monday, you know, this is the day historically they have the white house easter egg roll but this year it's virtual because of the pandemic. perhaps the headline though, for a lot of people on easter monday is lent is over, whatever i gave up i can resume to maybe having that glass of wine when i'm making supper at night. brian: but not before work. ainsley: [laughter] steve: why? brian: okay, sorry. ainsley: let's bring in louisiana senator john kennedy, recently joined the gop delegation on tour in the border facility in donna, texas good morning to you, senator. >> good morning. ainsley: if you look at these number, deportations they are in arrests of illegal immigrants in the u.s. have fallen sharply under biden's watch. if you look at the numbers let's take last december. that was the last full month under president trump. there were 5,735 i.c.e. deportations. now, look at february. that full month, that was the
first full month under biden , 2,590. brian: but just less people coming here that's all. ainsley: right, right, more people coming and fewer arrests. what do you think about that? why is that, and what's your reaction? >> sometimes when people act like they don't care, it's not an act. i think president biden just doesn't care. i think he plans on admitting between two and 3 million illegal immigrants into our country this year. we had hints of that in his campaign. brian: future dreamers. >> true, but also, just letting people in illegally at the border. this is dangerous. the border patrol told me that at least people from 55
countries have already come in. steve: wow. >> people from all over the world are getting to mexico and flooding in. number two, it's very expensive. many of these folks will go on welfare, particularly if they can make it to a sanctuary city or a blue state. it puts downward pressure on wages, and it undermines illegal immigration which most americans support. now, in further evidence of what i just suggested, the president has put vice president harris in charge of trying to combat the illegal immigration. there's some confusion. she says she doesn't want it. the president says she's got to take it, but no disrespect to the vice president. i know her well and i respect her, but she believes in open borders. making her the illegal immigration czar as i said the other day is like making el
chapo the drug czar. brian: right and by the way they are sending a special en view to the northern triangle areas of guatemala between aprid katie: tobin, the director for transborder security will be there as well as another guy named envoy sanuga, so they're going. why is it taking two months and why isn't the vice president going? evidently she was working the phones over the weekend. is that enough? >> well if all they do is take billions and billions of american taxpayer money and give it to the governments of the northern triangle countries, they might as well throw it in the dirt because that money is going to be stolen. it'll never make it to the people. now, if what the envoy is going to do is talk to the governments in the northern triangle countries and say look, we can do this the easy way or the hard way. we're going to setup processing
centers in your country and allow people to apply for refugee status in your country, and adjudicate the claims there. they're not coming into the united states, and if you don't do that, then we're going to make you an offer you can't refuse. that's what trump did, but i don't think that's what they are going to do. i think they are just going to take billions of taxpayer money, and give it to the governments which are going to promptly steal it. steve: oh, man, you know, the biggest thing on your agenda for right now in the senate and the congress as well, senator, is the fact that it looks like this gigantic $2 trillion infrastructure bill is heading your way. the big question is will any republicans be on board? the $2 trillion trade, probably not but pete buttigieg, the secretary of transportation, listen to this , senator, he says the boss wants this done
fast. >> know that this is entering a legislative process where we're going to be hearing from both sides of the aisle and i think you'll find the president has got a very open mind, but time is of the essence. so, we'll look at these ideas on how to pay for it. we'll look at ideas on where the investments ought to be too but the president is hoping for major progress from congress before memorial day, and we can't allow this thing to just keep dragging on, because the need is there today. steve: speaking of today, senator, today in the new york post on the op-ed page they talk about how the single biggest line item of money in that particular infrastructure bill, not for bridges or tunnels but it's for millions of healthcare jobs because there's strings attached to it. the white house memo of understanding says the money will be tied to healthcare workers getting the ability to collectively bargain. in other words, you want the money, you're going to have to join a union. >> well, let's go to lala land
for a while. this is not an infrastructure bill. if you think this is an infrastructure bill you probably better stay away from sharp objects. this is a green new deal. brian: yup. >> welfare, and repirations bill. being charitable less than 10% of the bill is devoted to infrastructure, and we don't even know what the projects are. you know who picks the projects? speaker pelosi, senator schumer, and president biden. now one need not be clairvoyant to see that their projects are going to end up in new york and california and blue states, so there you have it. you've got a political slush fund, and you can say and maybe even believe that two plus two equals five, but just because you say it doesn't make it true. the correct answer is four. this is not an infrastructure bill. it's also outrageously expensive
there is no free lunch. you don't get one now. they are going to pay for it through more debt, and higher taxes. ainsley: let's talk about what's happening -- >> now will they work with us? i hope so. ainsley: they say they will. >> i'll do old man backflips if they will work with us but i don't have my hopes up. ainsley: they say that they will , we'll see. mlb moving the all-star game out of atlanta because they changed the election laws there. it's going to cost that area about $10 million according to the tourism industry. i'm sorry, 100 million, and this is cecelia rowsey, talking about the economic impact and she's a biden advisor. >> it's a little early to judge what the economic impact will be , but they have a right to vote with their feet, and to express their dissatisfaction with the laws. there is undoubtedly going to be a cost, i think that was the
point that major league baseball was trying to make. major league baseball, will, however, move its game, and workers at another place will benefit. that is exactly the message that major league baseball was trying to send, that these companies have the opportunity to vote with their feet, and they're using their economic power to express their dissatisfaction. ainsley: the reason they are doing that is joe biden is out there, spreading misinformation. some people are calling him a liar. listen to chris christie. >> joe biden's broken his own rule, and now he's lying to the american people, george. he's lying about this bill. he's lying to the american people about it, to cause the raging fire he said he was going to put out i'm very disappointed. ainsley: what's so wrong with having to show a voter id, to vote in-person, and what's wrong and to vote if you're mailing in your ballot and what's wrong with having signature verification? isn't that fair? >> i think it is.
number one, i think president biden has done the country a great disservice by not telling the truth about this bill. i mean, either he's lying or he's lost. number two, the commissioner of baseball is mr. ron manfred. he's just made baseball a blue sport. brian: he did. >> i don't get it. i don't get it. i mean, his attendance is declining. if it were my job i would try to be adding fans. the only thing i can figure is mr. manfred is part of the managerial melite, the entrenched politicians, the bureaucrats, certain members of the media, the academics, the corporate phonies who think they are smarter and more virtuous than the people they make money off of and as best as i can tell, mr. manfred just wet his pants in delight at the
chance to virtue signal here and all he did was make major league baseball a blue sport. i don't get it. brian: right and watch it move to new york where it's even more restricted than georgia's changes. it's unbelievable. he didn't read the bill. it's lazy, and it's cowardly, for them to do that, but here is the other thing. >> i was just going to say, what my democratic friends want, they want two things. they want no id and they want to be able to ballot harvest. brian: tough. >> you know, that's going to undermine the integrity or the perception of the integrity of every single election. we will go through every time what we went through last time, and it's just foolish. i don't understand, and if you don't agree that you shouldn't
have to, that you should have to present an id, you're a racist. go ahead. brian: i'm just saying compared to jim crow, a democratic initiative from the 1880s, is so outlandish. jim crow on steroids, jim crow had a poll tax, a literacy tax, it was a way to keep african americans from voting or minorities from voting period. this has nothing to do with that , and, go ahead. >> i was just going to say my guess is, when you go to pick-up your season tickets for major league baseball, if anybody is still buying them, at least on my side of the aisle, my guess is you have to show an id. brian: yup. ainsley: you do. steve: final topic for you, senator. for months before the election, mainstream media would not touch the hunter biden story, and just in the month before the election
, there's that story about the laptop showing up at the shop in delaware. new york post broke the story, fox news broke the story as well hunter biden was asked about it by cbs over the last couple of days after everybody on his side said do you know what? that's just russian disinformation, not true, now as it turns out hunter says yes, could be mine. listen. >> was that your laptop? >> for real, i don't know. >> i know but you know. >> i really don't know what the answer is. >> you don't know yes or no if the laptop was yours? >> no idea. >> could have been yours? >> of course certainly there could be a laptop out there stolen from me that could be that i was hacked and could be that there was, that it was russian intelligence, it could be that it was stolen from me. steve: so senator, now he says it certainly could be my laptop, but before the election, it was nope, it certainly was russian disinformation. >> well, i don't know mr.
hunter biden. i do know that his father allowed mr. hunter biden to send the message to the world that american foreign policy can be bought like a sack of potatoes and that's wrong. number two, i don't know why he is released this book, right now one point of view is that he's trying to send a message that he is not responsible for anything that he does because he's an addict, and that's an interesting point of view. i do believe addiction it's a crippling disease, but i also believe in free will and personal responsibility and i don't think you can be absolved of everything you do wrong in this world, no matter
whether you're an addict or not or how you're feeling or what somebody did to you, because you say that it's not my fault, i can't help it. i don't think that's a defense in a court of law. brian: does this help his dad? >> i don't see how, but i think it probably helps him. i mean, the impression that i kind of get from haven't read the book, want to be fair, but i've read excerpteds and seen the news reports and the message he's trying to send is that i'm not responsible for anything that i do because i like cocaine and heroin, and that's a pretty different view of the world in my judgment. it certainly has nothing to do with personal responsibility. brian: but again he's trying to make a profit off it isn't he? >> yes, he's going to make a lot of money.
steve: well let's see if any of that stuff turns out to be bad for him, the book comes out i think tomorrow. senator, thanks for coming out today. >> thank you, folks. ainsley: thank you. okay, jillian has headlines for us. jillian: good morning that's right and we begin with this. happening today, the man accused of killing four people including a 9-year-old at a southern california office complex will be arraigned. the suspect will appear from his hospital bed. last week he was charged with multiple counts of murder and attempted murder charges. the suspect was shot by police and remains in critical condition. >> a portland school weighs whether having a tree as its mascot is racist. the high school is on track to change its mascot to the evergreens but the vote was postponed over concerns that trees are tied to lynching. a vote is set for next tuesday. the high school was just renamed to honor famous black journalist ida b. wells barnette , was originally named after president woodrow wilson. >> a california veteran with disabilities is reunited with

ainsley: congresswoman aoc might be one of the most outspoken democrats but some members of her own party don't want her support. at least three house democrats have reportedly returned or declined donations from aoc's campaign. so, is this a sign the party is ready to reject the far left before the mid-terms? here to discuss this , publisher of the federalist and fox news contributor, ben domenech. >> good morning. ainsley: why would you think they were running those donation s? >> look i think in the last go-
around in 2020 we really saw how much republicans were invest ed in trying to make the entire democratic party stand up beside the democrat socialist who become such a loud voice within their coalition, and this is not in anyway an in accurate frame. when you look at the policies being put in place, they frequently are, the donees that are being advocated for by aoc and by others who share a lot of her socialist- minded views, this is something though they've been able to separate in part because of the reputation of someone like joe biden, as being someone who was not particularly socialist-minded. the problem is those socialists are now flush with cash, they are spreading it around because they want to try to hold on to the power that they have within a democratic majority, and i think that in this case in particular, what really surprised the number of these democrat members is that they didn't have a warning from the national party leadership that aoc was going to be giving them money, money that could
really be used against them when they are renting for re-election in campaign ads that will probably run across the country, tying them to the radical policies that aoc favors. ainsley: why does she have so much power or why nancy pelosi, democratic leadership, why are they so fearful of upsetting her >> well, i think to a certain degree, there were so many moments in the past couple of years where you saw nancy pelosi asserting her leadership within the conference and then there be moments where the democrat socialists kind of get together and say do you feel in charge? and i think that that's something that we saw play out time and again when it came to a lot of different policy priorit ies. i think looking back, for instance at the censoring of ill am omar, and the whole way that played out that's a good example of the kind of power they we'll within this coalition and they do represent a very significant portion of the democrat base, a younger portion trying to pull the party much farther left on a host of different issues.
ainsley: those progressive view, everything is free, guaranteed wages, healthcare free, retirement free, college, paying off student loans and pre-k. government-healthy food how can a country ever afford all of this? >> well we can't, ainsley but even more than that i think we should understand what's going on with this new radicalism because it's not just the things that you mentioned. it's paired with an identity politics approach that says it's going to be about equity but really it's about reasserting and rebalancing what they view is being policies that should be based on race, based on the ethnicity of the people that we have in this country, in ways that we have not seen historical ly with these types of programs. it's a very dangerous proposition but it's one that we're only going to see more of in the future. ainsley: if you don't jump on board you're canceled. ben, thank you so much you can listen to ben domenech's podcast , or wherever you downloaded your favorite podcast

flew down to talk -- brian: i think i got it now, so i had a chance to go down there thursday, they don't have a direct flight to midland so i stopped in dallas and hopped over to midland and spent the afternoon with george p. bush talking about oil & gas workers, also his political future, take a look. when president joe biden hours into taking office signed an executive order, killing the exel pipeline here in texas they knew they were going to be in trouble and this is texas and texas fights back and that's exactly what they did with the texas defense task force led by land commissioner george p. bush. >> we're already in the courthouse indifferent parts of the country fighting some of the wreckless policies we've seen from the left so we're excited to bring the fight back. brian: but he comes out and says goodbye xl pipeline and he says oh, yeah when it comes to drilling on federal land we're going to pause that. how does that resonate in texas? >> well it's sends a very dangerous message to our state.
the industry directly employs 400,000 texans and indirectly employs over 1 million. we will lose 120,000 jobs if the federal lease policy stays in place the rest of this year alone. brian: what about next year and the year after? the jobs are going to multiply exponentially or just disappear >> they will unless we do something about it and that's what we're doing in texas we're going to visit with small business owners that felt the personal pain of what it means to let go of workers. >> we've lost 40-50,000 jobs here locally in midland odessa. brian: who were you thinking when you saw president biden open up those books and sign those executive orders? >> what hit me significantly was the fact of thinking about all of the assets that i had operating in new mexico and having the conversation of you guys are going to have to move to west texas or you're going to have to go find something else to do. brian: so immediately, that book opens, he signs a signature and they are out of a job. >> it was significant, like that. brian: do you think that they understand these are people,
with jobs? >> they don't. >> i got laid off the 1st of august, was without work for four and a half months. i was slated to go up to the key stone. >> set to go to the xl pipeline >> yes, sir. >> we were hoping everything would pickup, once covid eased off and we got slammed in the gut again, when mr. biden come in and knocked out 11,000 jobs the first day in office, it's easy to say just go find another job but when you're the head of a household and that other job you do pays you half as much as what you're used to? that's not quite as easy as it sounds. brian: your message is just let me work? >> yeah, just let us do our job brian: so george, now i'm going to get a chance to see what it's like working on a rig? >> absolutely it's going to be the best training facility you will find. brian: should we go in? >> safety first. this is a pumping unit. brian: what are we looking for? >> oil & gas, oh, yeah, there will be oil & gas mixed together coming out of this and natural
gas coming out of this one, they co-mingle into a flow line and go into production. brian: wow. >> this is just a tiny fraction of what all goes into your typical oil field. brian: right and i found out you need workers. >> absolutely we do. brian: what happened? >> when it slows down and people get frustrated and leave the industry they say they are never coming back and they don't brian: but you say these are great paying jobs? >> absolutely it pays over $125,000 per year. brian: and you do make money? >> oh, yes, absolutely. brian: so you've had this job for a while. when you got hit with that freeze, did you sense there was some people on the left that were almost happy about it? >> absolutely they laughed at the misfortune of a red state but the reality is that what it messaged to people in our state is we need to produce more energy. brian: you also have a border issue on top of that. >> communities on our border dealing with this incredible in flux of not only unaccompanied children, but illegal immigrants that are coming across, we're tired of the federal government not stepping up to the plate, and accepting their
responsibility in this effort. brian: matthew mcconaughey wants to run for governor. he's thinking about it getting into politics what advice would you give him? >> maybe he needs to continue to think about it. brian: what do you say about people who think your party is fractured? >> there's nothing more unified than joe biden and kamala harris after a few years of left wing progressive ideas everyday americans say this is enough. brian: does that make you want to seek another position? >> i've been privileged to serve as land commissioner for the last six years but we need to do leadership in this high state-wide executive role. brian: you're hoping to run for >> i'm taking a very serious look at attorney general. brian: when would you make that decision? >> well right now as i mentioned we're so focused on fixing the winter grid, pushing back the overreach, working on during this legislative session but ex present an announcement very very soon. brian: as i mentioned before he's not afraid of green energy, texas has huge wind farms 20% of their energy comes from wind, they are second in the country with solar, so they understand
the balance, they are all for the environmental thing. here is the other thing they do. you ever hear about well there's an environmental impact. what's the environmental impact here? it turns out their enemies, the green movement, will find some type of grass or insect or horney toad to decide they have to be preserved so therefore you can't drill here and they go to court and delay and delay and delay and people lose more and more money while pressuring the banks not to lend and invest and they are trying to slowly crush the fuel industry. you know what happens? we just end up getting oil & gas from another country or from op ec or from russia. ainsley: did that man end up getting a job? brian: he does not have a job as of friday, he doesn't have a job but trying to jump on board. steve: as for george p. bush, he might have another job, stay tuned good interview, brian. brian: thanks. steve: meanwhile let's go way out to the west coast, portland police officers leaving in drove s after months of anti-

officer, fox news contributor secret service agent, dan bongino. dan, none of this should surprise you, correct? >> no, no, listen, folks. this is only a mystery to liberals, who i don't know if their skulls are extra thick, if they're lined with vibranium or led, how is this a shocker to anyone, let me get this straight , let's coddle the criminals and treat the cops like crap and wonder why the cops are leaving, i mean to the listeners out there do you ever wake up in the morning if you're sane and say how do liberals wake up in the morning and look in the mirror confused by this? oh, my gosh, we treated our cops terribly, and we're coddling the criminals allowed to run wild in the middle of portland and all of a sudden the cops don't want to work here. what a shocker. how did that happen? but that's liberalism for you, it's a forest fire. steve: meanwhile, before the election, fox news, new york post talked about the hunter
biden story, the laptop and everything else. it was pretty much avoided by the mainstream media until this weekend, when cbs did an interview with hunter and the good news, dan, listen to this , hunter didn't do anything wrong. >> i can say this. i'm cooperating completely, and i'm absolutely certain, 100% certain, that at the end of the investigation, that i will be cleared of any wrongdoing. all i can do is cooperate and trust in the process. i don't think i made a mistake, in underestimating the way in which it be used against me. steve: used against him, so didn't make mistakes with his taxes and he says that laptop at the fix-in shop in delaware certainly would have been his. >> yeah, okay a couple points number one this is a grown man,
not a child so can we please, not you guys but can we please stop in other media outlets referring to this , to joe biden 's kid, this is a grown man , okay? secondly, what kind of a father puts this guy, their son, in charge of these international deals with enemies of the united states, knowing he has a drug problem? can someone answer me that question, tell me how lunch bucket joe is such a great guy again and third we're not sure it's the laptop hey look at this do you know what it is it's not my notes for today's show here is the hunter biden receipt for the laptop, here is hunter biden's signature for the laptop , here is where it's billed to hunter biden. the laptop for the receipts that had pictures of hunter biden with hunter biden's confirmed e-mail, where hunter biden dropped the laptop off. is anyone going to ask, here it is, guys. the receipt. that's the receipt right there. i even printed one for myself, everyone can do it. this media person could have asked that question, so is hunter biden's laptop signed by hunter biden billed to hunter biden with pictures of hunter
biden, with hunter biden's e-mail, but gosh, whose computer could that possibly be! ainsley: dan what happens next? does this investigation just die because the fbi had the laptop years ago, and we haven't heard much about it. >> listen, i'm sorry. i gave up on the justice department a long time ago, i'm sorry. show me evidence otherwise if this was donald trump jr.'s laptop with pictures of donald trump jr. signed by donald trump jr. and billed to donald trump jr. , he be in a federal prison right now for 25 years for selling the country out to china, but because it's hunter, no you do interviews and sell a book on it. you want me to have faith in the justice system? the justice system is blind, to democrats. the republicans their eyes are wide open it's disgusting. brian: he has the audacity to do a book tour while his dad's president and he has so much controversy and now he's chronicling it, and that was just his first interview.
>> i was in my garage this morning, brian and i heard you say another great point either you or steve said and then the brother, joe biden's brother is out there too. brian: in florida. >> filming video it's amazing. these guys have no shame at all. they are all wonderful lunch bucket joe he's one of us. he ain't one of me. he maybe one of you, but he ain't one of me. what kind of guy sends his kid out there to do this , think about tax. brian: the same guy that just said it was jim crow on steroids that flat out lied. we have to re-examine what's going on here dan thanks so much look forward to your show today. ainsley: still ahead the teen that brought fox nation cars to the daytona 500 track is shift ing gears to a new patriotic partnership on new military heros first let's check in with bill hemmer and dana perino. >> bill: you as well, ainsley and the boys down there. >> happy easter monday to everybody. we are not quite sure what we're doing no i'm kidding we have a big show, we'll talk to a woman from georgia.
