3:00 am
these folks. thank you so much for joining us. >> thanks, lawrence. >> lawrence: jillian? jillian: you tossed it to me like there walls more it's over. only five seconds left. >> lawrence: one more day. jillian: "fox & friends" start right now. ♪ >> lawrence: the texas governor calls the shutdown a migrant facility amid child sex abuse allegations. >> the biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children. >> many critics of president biden's border policy is asking where is vice president haste? >> i'm wondering, is she still working on this? ?it's absolutely an issue she hs a lead on. i have no idea when she'll travel. i'm sure it will be soon. >> bill would raise the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%. >> it's not fair to the rest of the american taxpayers. >> your taxes are going up, big time. >> the masters will go on in georgia despite baseball's decision to yank the all-star game.
3:01 am
>> there have been calls for boycotts. those actions often impose the greatest burdens on the most vulnerable in our society. ♪ go back ♪ this is a moment ♪ tonight is the night ♪ we will fight until it's over ♪ we put our hands up like the ceiling can't hold us ♪ like the ceiling can't hold us. ainsley: that's a live look at miami, florida. good morning to you. it's nurse, y'all. where has this week gone? it's flying by. brian: right. i believe there is a curfew in miami. they have to listen to that at home normally without a pandemic they might still be in the clubs and lights start going on. that's pretty much the last song they play. steve: i think it's in miami beach. i'm not positive. for much of the rest of the city. i just looked, it is 70 trees there. 80 for a high. zero is the state income tax because i bring that up because they just jacked up the state income tax here in new york state, two whole points to 11% for people who are very
3:02 am
successful. brian brian new york state just got a huge payout for doing a terrible job during the pandemic from the democratic president. the same new york state so in order not to raise taxes even senator schumer said we gave you some mope. don't raise taxes. cuomo says yeah the more i think about it we should raise taxes. is he a genius. steve: same state that leads the nation in small business closures. ainsley: going to talk to a small business owner coming up. brian: give out trophies to everyone. steve: thank you for joining us on this thursday. heart breaking it agents rescuing two young siblings apparently abandoned near the border wall. ainsley: their apprehensions come as it will exploding to record levels. >> griff, it's gotten worse. >> it sure has. i get calls and texts all day long. brian, ainsley and steve. good morning. if you consider the geography, literally of the two examples you just gave from coast to coast from texas to california,
3:03 am
the border is on fire with daily reminders of the smugglers brutality, toddlers in the san diego sector, a 6-year-old boy, a 5-year-old girl rescued by agents alone, crying. their mother's name and number written on their arms it's the same sector where just hours later agents arrested a documented ms-13 gang member. now, in arizona, smugglers are using groups of children to overwhelm border patrol agents and divert resources away from single adult groups and narcotics and in texas, ground zero in the rgb 3111 apprehensions in a 24 hour period a 335% up crease from last year. this as the number of unaccompanied children in dhs's care and custody right now exceeds 20,000. the child shelter that is one of many in san antonio is now under investigation after sexual abuse
3:04 am
allegations prompting texas governor greg abbott to call for it to be shut down. the lieutenant governor there also blaming the biden administration. meanwhile, in washington, two weeks after vice president harris is tapped to tackle the migrant crisis still no plans for a trip to the border; however, vice president harris did tweet yesterday this: i spoke with president lopez obrador of mexico today to thank him on his cooperation of the migrants issues. i look forward to working with him to address the root causes of migration by improving the conditions of people in the reasonable, including southern mexico. that's important because as you remember from our past travels down to the southern border of mexico in where all the migrants are coming across see if we get mexico's cooperation. you are getting a trip from mayorkas. is he headed to el paso and mcallen today to be briefed by
3:05 am
the officials. it's his third trip to the border. brian, ainsley, steve? steve: all right, griff. a lot of moving part to this story. thank you very much. let's bring an expert on this tom homan fox news contributor and acting ice director. tom, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: right there at the end, griff showed that tweet that kamala harris put out where she said she spoke to the mexican president obrador and thanked him. is mexico cooperating? wouldn't they be stopping these people from coming into our country illegally? >> absolutely. mexico is not cooperating at the level they did with the trump administration. with the trump administration they had an agreement. also had an agreement with all three central american countries. the first thing joe biden did was kill those yeements. mexico did more controlling the southern and northern border. they welcomed the remain in mexico program. all of that was done away by joe biden in two days. mexico is not cooperating with
3:06 am
this country the way it should be. ainsley: tom, we keep seeing images of all these kids the latest this morning is the 5 and 6-year-old siblings that were abandoned put over the boulder rocks on the side of our country and had their mom's phone number and names written on heir arm and a note. we heard griff talk about the ms-13 gang member saw those other kids dropped over the gate a few days ago. the yemen terrorist suspects. then we are learning this morning san antonio, the governor, governor abbott wants to shut down the facility that's housing children because of reports of sexual abuse. family and protective services says that they can confirm three separate reports of abuse. here's the governor. we will get your reaction on the other side. >> these problems are a buy byproduct of hind's open border policies. this facility is a health and safety nightmare. the biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of
3:07 am
children. to end this abuse, the biden administration must immediately shut down this facility. the children who are in this facility should be moved to other federally run facilities where the federal government has the space, personnel and resources to ensure their safety. ainsley: tom, your reaction? >> the governor is exactly right. because here is what no one is talking about. the biden administration's contract with ngos who have no business running detention facilities. "the washington examiner" broke a story last night about the way thee contracts are being let. we have family residential centers that are licensed. that are run by contractors who work through ice who have pediatricians on site, social workers on site, child psychologists. these were built for vulnerable people, women and chirp. and they are practically empty because the biden administration calls them for-profit prisons.
3:08 am
so they would rather walk away from the state of the art facility, the gold standard for vulnerable people. they walk away from these facilities, leave them half empty and signing contracts with federal ngos? the person at ice ahead of now contract detention beds karen mcnulty ngo and advocate she is making the final decision all detention contracts over and above the experienced officers who actually run detention facilities who actually contracted with detention facilities for decade, she is making the decision and washington examiner just broke a story that some of these contract are being awarded to people who worked the biden transition team and biden campaign. they are going to companies like the endeavor $86 million for hotel rooms? that's 77,000 per alien when we have family residential centers who were built for the very same reason taking care of these children. it's ridiculous the -- if any congressman or senator is watching this show, i implore them to do a congressional investigation how these contracts are being awarded to these open border advocates who
3:09 am
have no business running these kind of facilities. brian: that's why texas is suing. they have got to be given heads up it's happening on their property and their land. don't worry, tom, you are overreacting. all those reports and minors crying alone without parents, that's no big deal because speaker pelosi says joe biden has got this. listen. >> the fact is that we're on a good path at the border under leadership of joe biden-president biden. we were in a very bad situation under the trump administration. brian: if you zoomed in you could have seen her laughed maybe in the background? is she kidding? is anyone buying that? >> look, nancy pelosi isn't smart at all. we all know that. she is probably the least smart congresswoman to ever be a member of congress. the bottom line is children are dying. children are being abandoned. 31% of women are being raped. cartels are making million. last march 33,000 apprehensions
3:10 am
this march 171,000. it is not under control. it's a mess, chaos built by the biden administration. and this was by design. this isn't by accident. this isn't mismanagement. this is open borders. this is what joe biden sold out. brian: the vice president was told hey, do you. this just like vice president pence would say hey, handle the pandemic response. she was given this opportunity to show what she can do and has shown that she doesn't want to do anything. she has made one phone call to mexico. she has not visited the border. she has been to connecticut on march 26th. why not? on the 27th to 31st back in washington. then to brentwood, california to visit her old stomping grounds. over to oakland and then to chicago to talk about infrastructure. is that somebody who wants to tackle a program -- a problem? >> i have a different opinion. i don't want her anywhere near this issue because she will make it worse. look, they don't want to fix this problem. let me tell you what they're trying to fix. mark my word this is happening. they want to get really good at
3:11 am
releasing people as fast as they can so there is no overcrowding. they will ignore the numbers. they will ignore the thousands a day. will. brian: that's why texas is suing them. >> absolutely. and they should be suing them. and more states need to sue them. this administration halls no intention of securing this border. they have no intention of enforcing immigration laws in this country. they have made that clear. they created this crisis and they get really good at releasing people so there is no overcrowding. steve: also getting really good at making sure nobody who works for the federal government tells the press about what's going on. you know, a couple days ago we heard that those two yemeni guys were stopped at the southern border. one of them had a sim card in there. they were on the terrorist watch list. and then they took counsel the press release so that people wouldn't know the details because of national security, tom. and this on the heels of the fact that republicans were able to pressure the cbp to admit that since october four other people on the terrorist watch
3:12 am
list have been apprehended. three other yemenese and a serbian. that makes six that we know of. it seems like the only way that they can go ahead and continue this ridiculous, it's not a crisis people is through censorship. >> absolutely. let me tell you something i talked to several people in command of cbp. i won't mention their names because they will be in a lot of trouble. that press release was taken down because it was bad press for the administration. steve: exactly. >> they said they didn't clear it properly through dhs. the facts of that press release remain the facts. it was an accurate press release. they upset the department because the department wants to control all press. you know, they don't want the men and women of the border patrol the chiefs out there talking to the media. they tonight want the truth out to the american people. so much for a traps parent administration. they are hiding from the american people the crisis on this border. that is a national security crisis. ms-13 members are come through. real quick, when i was -- we did
3:13 am
operation matador in phoenix you might remember that couple years ago arrested short of 500 gang members, minnesota most of them ms-13 members. 42% of the gang members arrested came in as a uac or family group. now try to get around border patrol 1,000 got awayser day because they tie the border patrol up with families. actually embedding themselves as uac and family group. that's why you are having fights at these facilities. that's why you had a sexual abuse at these facilities. the gangs and cartels are taking advantage of this humanitarian crisis and created a national security crisis for this country that the biden administration is simply ignoring. ainsley: so, a reporter did ask jen psaki about kamala harris, where is she? why is she traveling around the u.s. when she is in charge of the border and she is not down there? listen to this. is she still working on this and can you address the perception that she is kind of quietly backing off while secretary mayorkas is pursuing some trump era policies? >> first, i would say the vice
3:14 am
president was visiting chicago actually to talk about covid and the importance of communities getting the vaccine when it's available and accessible to them and so, while she was there, like many americans, she got a snack. i think she is allowed to do that. it is an absolutely an issue she remains committed. to say the northern triangle which i'm sure you are aware of is not the same as the border. ainsley: tom, i know you don't want her down there at the border, when you see all these images of these kids it's personal to you. you have been to the border. you worked down there for so long. this is a crisis without a doubt, and it's inhumane. >> it's absolutely inhumane. look, i have said it many times. you see these videos of a kid being abandoned and 9-year-old drowned the other day. there is a video yesterday of these children. that happens every day numerous times every day on that border. these border patrol agents are dealing with abandoned children, dying children, and, look, i have told my story many times
3:15 am
how many tragedy i have seen on the border. that's why i'm angry. this can be prevented. president trump had us on the right road. 70%, 80% decline illegal immigration killed in two weeks by this administration. brian: tom homan, thanks so much. this is not going away especially because the vice president was asked to handle it and she is deciding not to. she is busy. she has a lot on her mind. ainsley: what he just said can be prevent prevented. this can all be appreciated. steve: of course. brian: tom homan thank you very much. another story coming out what behind the scenes that led to the boycott all-star game by looked like corporate entity which led to rob man fred major league baseball moving the all-star game over to colorado. report that foxnews.com is running now lebron james, stacey abrams and reverend al sharpton directly and indirectly pressured major league baseball commissioner to pull this game out saying that the players eventually would refuse to play leaving him the sense that he
3:16 am
had no choice but to modify out stacey abe rams said i didn't mean for you to boycott atlanta to lose $100 million minimum that's exactly what happened. that's why lebron james came out and immediately tweeted how supportive he was that this pull-out took place of course it's not going to affect him. stacey abrams, of course, i guess is more powerful than the governor and then al sharpton it i didn't know he had a presence there but i guess his tentacles are everywhere. steve: one of the things about that story, brian, it says it's suspicious that stacey abrams is now saying look, i didn't want a boycott. brian: too late. steve: because, think about it, she essentially would be saying i'm sorry that i -- what my group was doing impacted the people who i eventually want to vote for me for governor. brian: too late. it. steve: we will see. ainsley: the masters is going on this week. steve: today.
3:17 am
ainsley: that's right. fred ridley, he is the augusta national chairman took over for billie payne back in 2017. they always do this pre-tournament press conference and of course he was asked about what was happening in georgia and what their plan was. listen to this. >> the right-to-vote is fundamental in our democratic society. no one should be disadvantaged in exercising that right. and it is critical that all citizens have confidence in the electoral process. there have been calls for boycotts and other punitive measures. unfortunately, those actions often impose the greatest burdens on the most vulnerable in our society. and, in this case, that includes our friends and neighbors here in augusta who are the very focus of the positive difference we are trying to make. steve: yeah. he also was later asked if he was for or against the law.
3:18 am
he said they would not be choosing sides on the georgia law. it's interesting. daily wire did a survey monkey survey. and 78% actually support georgia's voter i.d. requirements for absentee balloting and also they found that a majority, 64% of people who identified as fans of major league baseball, delta and coca-cola they said they are less likely to support companies and organizations that are outspoken about political controversy. they prefer people just corporations just to be quiet and sell. ainsley: i'm so glad they're not moving out of augusta the beautiful there. azaleas. the pimento cheese sandwiches. brian: tuesday a mainly meeting between those corporations to decide how they will act on the pressure they are getting threat of a boycott. so they're getting together
3:19 am
tuesday to decide how they're acting. they are getting pressured to protest other states and what they're doing with election reform. i guess their eyes are on texas. ainsley: all right. it's 18 minutes after the top of the hour. the white house wants to crack down on tax loopholes but the same loophole president biden wants eliminated is one he used for his own benefit. a look at the hypocrisy coming up next. steve: funny. ♪ [sfx: rainstorm] ♪♪ comfort in the extreme. ♪♪ the lincoln family of luxury suvs. (burke) phone it in to 1-800-farmers and you could get all sorts of home policy perks like the claim-free discount. ♪♪ go three years without a claim and get a discount.

because suddenly we are deep in the heart of taxes, ainsley. ainsley: yeah. we are. and it's heart-breaking making us all want to move to florida, right, because our taxes are going up. steve: or texas. ainsley: yeah, yeah, yeah. our taxes are going up. all across this country this corporate tax is going to effect you even if you don't own a corporation. larry kudlow said it's very bad for our economy. he said and then your taxes are going to go up big time. and then there is much more coming when biden gets to the individual tax code and capital gains and small business. he said get ready for that made in america tax plan to raise $2.5 trillion, this is what it looks like. corporate tax rates going up to 28%. remember trump dropped it down to 21%. it tightens the tax code loopholes so if you find loopholes to save money for your family you don't have to give it to the government, joe biden wants to tighten that doubles the global tax rate to 21%.
3:25 am
brian: wants to get the world to aagree on one tax rate. good luck, janet yellen. europe matched us under donald trump now europe is going to be asked by janet yellen to up the global tax rate. forget it. i know that's what they are going to tell us to do. meanwhile, joe biden had this to say about those horrible corporations who find loopholes because they have tax attorneys. listen. >> new independent study put out last week found at least 55 of our largest corporations lose -- use the various loopholes to pay zero federal tax income tax in 2020. it's just not fair. it's not fair to the rest of the american taxpayers. we're going to try to put an end to this. brian: really? how dare you try to go around and pay less taxes as corporations? i mean, that's why you have attorneys who look at everything, loopholes exist. if people find them legally there is nothing illegal about
3:26 am
them. you want to close those loopholes. but guess who actually should be a little bit more upset with loopholes and the fact that they are closing? joe biden. pause it looks like he and his wife have saved up to $500,000 by finding corporations to hide their money in on speeches and other investments. he earned roughly 13.5 million. he set up a bunch of corporations totally legal to go around end and pay -- and save an estimated $500,000. so, while he sits there and says i'm middle class joe, i don't really relate to this type of allusion when it comes to taxes, he is really not middle class joe. he is boy am i rich joe and he is doing everything that he is claiming the corporations are doing. how does he get away with it? how are no questions ever asked of him about this? steve: it's interesting because it was at the -- when he was vice president with barack obama, barack obama wanted to get rid of this particular
3:27 am
loophole. and then when joe biden left the white house, as vice president, he started doing this. and what he did was he set up an s corporation because he would then put his money, any money he made with taxes and speeches would go through the s corporation. and people who own s corpses as they are known and a lot of people watching right now do that you can avoid paying in self-employment tax. and that is how it wound up being a half a million dollars of bonus in the pocket of the bidens. brian: i thought he was going to level with us? ainsley: congressman jim banks said do you intend to undo your hypocrisy and pay your taxes back to the american people? i doubt it. brian: precorporation and joe corporation to pay taxes. larry kudlow knows all about this. he set up the previous system and watching it being torn apart. >> today the tax man cometh with
3:28 am
all the phoney blown smoke blown various politicians in washington, my way of thinking is real simple. a $1.3 trillion corporate tax hike is a $1.3 trillion corporate tax hike. in other words, folks, your taxes are going up big time and there is much more coming when the bidens get to the individual tax code and capital gains and small business. get ready for that i think anybody with common sense would instinctively think that a gargantuan tax hike is bad for the economy. steve: okay. so that is what could happen. they could raise taxes nationally but, what we do know for sure and we mentioned this 28 minutes ago is here in new york state the legislature did pass the budget, which jacks up taxes on the most successful. now, 11% state here in new york city there is about 4% tax. that means 15% state -- oh, and ainsley is rolling her eyes because. ainsley: i know i'm paying my
3:29 am
taxes now. steve: 15% new york state and local taxes. down in. ainsley: painful. steve: showed you the picture of miami a moment ago. the income tax in florida. ainsley: zero. steve: so that begs the question after the pandemic, how many of those successful people who are going to wind up paying 15% in state and local taxes to new york are going to say, you know what? i really kind of like boca. ainsley: it's 6:29 here on the east coast. texas rangers are seeing a surge in illegal immigrants on their properties. now they say their homes are looking like war zones and president biden is making it worse. one rancher is going to share his story coming up next. steve: and as new yorkers push to have governor cuomo, congressman lee zeldin would like to help. is he going to join with us an exclusive announcement right here on "fox & friends" ♪ here i am ♪ rocking a hurricane

jillian: good morning, we are back with headlines now starting with a fox news alert. 8 people are hurt and one person missing following an explosion at an ohio paint plant overnight. the moment of the columbus blast was caught on camera. two people are in critical condition. the area around the factory was evacuated over concerns of dangerous materials inside the building. police escort the body of fallen capitol officer billie evans to a virginia funeral home. the 1-year department veteran was killed last week when a man rammed his car into officers who were guarding the capitol. the suspect noah greene shot and killed by police. green was supporter of the nation of islam. group leader louis farrakhan mourning his death saying he would have been a star in the refresh your recollection of our people. congress will pay tribute to officer evans and his sacrifice next week with a lying in honor ceremony in the capitol rotunda.

tiger woods february crash was caused by excessive speed. the los angeles county sheriff says woods was driving around 8 miles per hour in a speed limit zone of 45 miles per hour. the sheriff believes weeds accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes causing him to lose control. woods will not face any charges or traffic citations because there was no evidence of distracted driving or impairment. is he recovering from severe leg injuries. that is a look at your headlines, brian, send it back to you. brian: right. didn't learn much from that press conference. thanks, jillian. 25 minutes before the top of the hour. texas rangers seeing increase in the number of illegal immigrants showing up at their door steps looking for help. but not all journeys from a happy ending. one rancher says he has found body of migrants over the years as they got lost. that rancher joins us from texas. whit, thanks for joining us. what's the reality on the ground as it relates to your ranch
3:36 am
today? >> good morning. how are you, brian? brian: good. >> yes. it's a -- brian: i think we will get him back it looks as though we had such a clear picture and for it to disappear like that i get the sense we will get him back. some times you just have to walk up to the monitor and hit the side of it. this is some of the b roll we are seeing. this is some of the things that we see right in the vicinity at the border as we effort to get whit jones back. he says it feels like a war zone. ranchers are seeing that. they are feeling it. and that's why he came on to talk about it. he also says there is an interior second border that a lot of snuggling issues happen there cross the interior and get by whatever barrier is there. what you are seeing now teens who get those aluminum foil jackets and capes get on buses and then they seem to disappear. meanwhile, that rancher, whitt
3:37 am
jones, joins us now. whit, we will try it again. what do you see on your property on your ranch? >> so, what we see, brian, we are a little bit north of the river. brian: got it? >> the border with mexico. what we end up seeing is we see and typically what we hear about on the news is people crossing that border. but essentially there is another border that is about 50 miles to the north and we call it the interior check system or the interior check point. so, once all these people get across the river, they then now have to make another journey across to this next. brian: kind of like a second border interior border. and you say one of your neighbors found about 100 body over the years on their ranch.
3:38 am
what ages are they? what are they up to? >> no, that's correct. we have seen bodies. we don't find this many. it's all based on where you are geographically located and how people travel and where you are as to where the body are found. we find more like two to three. i mean, i don't know, that's still enough. brian: absolutely. >> some people are finding up to, are you know, like you said, a neighbor of mine has been finding close to 10 a year for the last 10 years. brian: so you say that these are men between their 20's and 40's never qualify for asylum. >> right now it is. brian: right. >> right now it is, brian. it's not always that way. in fact, right now we're seeing hardly any children or women because of everything that's going on on the river, those people aren't having to make this journey. they are being, you know, they

steve: but that's just a cartoon, isn't it? let's bring in marc morano the executive director at climate depot.com. so, mark was monty burns right all along to combat this thing we need to somehow block out the sun? >> >> well, according to the best and brightest we have today including from harvard, he seems to be right this is a redo of the 1970s. before fossil fuels caused global warming, fossil fuels caused global cooling and the ice age in the 170s they were worried that our fossil fuel pollution was blocking out the sun creating global dimming and the next ice age and they wanted to put black suit on the artic to melt the ice. they suggested using nuclear energy to melt ice. so they were trying to geo engineer the climate back in the
3:55 am
1970s and here we have come full circle now trying to do it the other way by essentially cooling the planet instead of trying to warm it. steve: global cooling, global dimming, global warming your head start spinning. ultimately you see this as a way to lobby for, wait for it, the green new deal. >> if you read this "new york times" article and see who is behind it people like bill gaetz is behind this solar engineering they say we need substantial funding. first of all the national academy of science which approved this is literally almost 100 percent dependent on government funding and has gotten involved in lobbying for science projects in the past. a quasi political organization. that's number one. number two, all throughout this they are saying this proposal is so radical, so risky we don't know the side effects but, mankind isn't reducing our emissions enough. we are being forced to do this risky radical experiment on our planet and so the implication is
3:56 am
if we would only reduce our emissions, we need to embrace the green new deal. we need to embrace it so we cannot alter and dangerously experiment with our planet. steve: well, let's see what they do. it is unusual idea from a cartoon. marc morano, it must not be too bad because i hear the birds chirping from your live location out there. >> that's right. we don't know if they will still be chirping after this. you know, bill gaetz, some people are terrified to think of him as their doctor. think of bill gaetz as mother nature. that may be more scary. bill gaetz is a big funder of this as well. steve: mark, thank you very much. >> thank you, steve. steve: lee zeldin with a big announcement coming up next. ♪ but, my home of my dreams needed some work. sofi was the first lender that even offered a personal loan, and i didn't even know that was an option.

4:04 am
and freedoms and safety. it's the deadly nursing home order and cover-up. janice dean has been absolutely fantastic. you have been covering it well. it's all of these scandals of abuse. it's the covid testing preferential treatment to his family at private residence with state department health officials. front of lab priority access for getting those tests done. listen, on so many different levels, everyone is coming to the conclusion whether you are republican, democrat, anywhere in between that this guy has been there too long. it's time to go. this is the first time in my entire life that we have had one party democratic rule in new york city, albany and d.c. and they're all doing their part to destroy their levels of government. we have to -- we can't get complacent. everyone is frustrated. you want to do something about it while people flee. let's stay here and fight and return new york to its glory but it's a combination of all of these factors. ainsley: is there a way? we have so many new yorkers that
4:05 am
are moving to florida. so many people from california moving to texas, why? because they don't pay a state income tax. and people can save money, put more money in their bank accounts, send their kids to college, are feed their kids. steve: better weather. ainsley: exactly. is there any way we could do that in new york have no state income tax? do you plan to lower taxes at least to help these businesses that are really hurting? >> we absolutely have to. people are fleeing. the geniuses up in albany think they just raise the income tax rate for new yorkers and now they are going to pay their fair share. what you actually did for many because they are hitting their breaking point and they are fleeing. essentially you just lowered their income tax rate to zero because they are not going to be giving you any money whatsoever. people are more mobile than ever. it's not just those that are hit with this tax increase. it's the family that has to get started either in their mom and dad's basement on long island or they can go buy a single family home in north carolina. it's the senior who has spent their whole lives in new york.
4:06 am
they want to stay. their family is here. but then can't afford to so they are heading down south. on so many different levels it's the quality of life. it's the cost of living and i love this state. i'm still here. you are still here. we need to turn it around and people are going to flee every single day until we do. brian bine we have had a republican as governor george pataki a while ago. have to work with democrats military background and to be existing in new york you have to work with democrats. have you done all those things. we will see if there is enough republican support, enough democratic anger to get you to that position but i know no one is going to run harder. congressman, congratulations on that move. now the real work starts. can we talk to you about the news. >> yeah, let's do it. brian: here is griff jenkins. he is going to bring us heart-breaking images what's happening at the border. remember, a lot of those kids at the border end up on long island in lower, working class schools and they never talk to a new

4:08 am
greg abbott to call for it to be shut down. watch. >> the biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children. to end this abuse, the biden administration must immediately shut down this facility. griff griff rio grande valley sector 3111 apprehensions in a 24 hour period on tuesday. that's a 335% up crease from last year. across the country coast to coast in san diego's sector that 6-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl rescued by agents. they were alone and crying. their mother's name and number was written on their arms. now, remember, that's the same sector where literally hours later agents arrested a known ms-13 gang member and it comes after we saw the second yemeni man on the terrorist watch list arrested near calexico, california. now, former ice director and fox news contributor tom homan was
4:09 am
on "fox & friends" earlier. here's what he had to say. >> this ♪ out of control. it's a mess, a chaos, built by the biden administration. brian: right. >> there is by design. this isn't by accident. this isn't mismanagement. this is open borders. griff: today alejandro mayorkas will travel to mcallen to see it firsthand. it's his third trip to the border. brian, ainsley, steve? steve: thank you very much. let's dial back in new york congressman from new york lee zeldin. i have been hearing with the crisis given the fact that there are so many people coming across the border, every state is now a border state. it was just last week we showed people other heart breaking images that were hard to watch of the two little children, the 3 and 5-year-old from ecuador who were dropped by smugglers on the ground off that 14-foot wall. as it turns out, their mother was in new york, your state. so those kids are heading to
4:10 am
this state. this is a problem to try to figure out how to handle all these people coming in. >> big time and i hate to say it but it's going to continue to get worse. why? because the biden administration is trying to two different narratives. one is they want to say there is no crisis. or, two, they want to say there is a crisis and it's all trump's fault. and the fact is that this started in a way with the way that joe biden ran his campaign but from day one, stopping border wall construction halting deportations putting forward a policies to have a path for citizenship. to release people into the united states without dates to report back to court. hotel story and the big cost that came with it. so, on so many different levels, the policies are incentivizing this. i have compassion for people who want to legally pursue the american dream. steve: sure. >> for people who want to cut the line and their first act is coming in illegally, i think we
4:11 am
need to have a backbone have a rule of law to strengthen our borders and have interior enforcement and as you pointed out well on network is that we have seen here on long island ms-13 members coming across the border, they end up in new york, people end up suffering from violence from, drug trafficking, human trafficking, sex trafficking, it has lives, consequences on americans in so many different ways, tough stop it at the border. ainsley: remember those two girls out on long island, they used a machete to kill these two girls walking in a neighborhood. nancy pelosi she says we are heading in the right direction though. listen to this. >> the fact is that we are on a good path at the border under leadership of joe biden -- president biden. we were in a very bad situation under the trump administration. ainsley: what do you say about that? she is the speaker. she is your colleague. brian: it's going great. >> and it's a reminder that between nancy pelosi, steny hoyer and james clyburn the 2022
4:12 am
three members of the house democratic leadership the top three members of house leadership they have been serving in the house of representatives for over 100 years. it's time to go. we need to bring in new blood, new ideas because you have people like speaker pelosi who is just a dishonest hack on stuff like this. and i hate to say it, but what we need is for people to be honest about what's happening because the crisis will only get worse until someone like speaker pelosi listens to some of her texas democrats in her delegation who say, hey, listen, there is a crisis. i see it in my district and you better do something about it because it's coming to your district if you don't stop it. brian: i mean, you have two democratic county executives right now. but they see the problem. they know that these ms-13 kids, they pretend to be kids. they enroll in school that's already overtaxed and overcrowded and they will go and create havoc and put that gang culture into these working class communities and it all starts at the border. and it's not a matter of democratic or republican.
4:13 am
it's people refusing to do anything but play politics. what i think is really scary is that they decided to raise taxes, despite getting a government handout here in new york. and it's now, if you accept this morntion you cannot decrease taxes in your city. guess who is not getting a big bailout? business owners, 30% of which are out of business for good. they came on and talked about how disillusioned they are with where we are at right now as a state. listen. >> $2.1 billion going to illegal immigrants while only a billion dollars of relief is given to hard-working a small business people that have been hit the hardest. in the state that was hit the hardest. it's an embarrassment and we should be ashamed of what our state government has done here in new york recommendation i feel betrayed. i feel betrayed by our governor that he has let us down and he has turned his back on us. he needs to take care of his own
4:14 am
first and then worry about others. something he doesn't know how to do. he has no respect for us. brian: congressman, your thought? >> yeah. you are hearing it from people all across the entire spectrum. you can have a conversation with a whole bunch of democrats they will complain about their kids not yet fully back in school. there are a lot of democrats in new york city complain about rising crime in their neighborhood. defund the police movement. not supporting law enforcement enough. people upset that their favorite restaurant isn't yet open, is dying, maybe even out of business right now. so from the tax policy to the public safety to the attacks on our freedoms, we're seeing a weakened governor because of all of the scandals, the loss of life, the cover-up, the investigations, but it's been impacting us in many ways and it's time for us to do something about it. that's why i'm running for governor of new york. my website zeldin for new york.com. i just posted an announcement video there as well. everyone everywhere across this state has to come together as
4:15 am
new yorkers don't just get in your corners and republican on democrat, red on blue. that's not how to turn things around. it's by us all working together because you have a lot of people who are watching from all across america this morning. they tune in every morning. they see what's happening in florida and texas, places where you have lower taxes, more freedoms. you are taking care of business. more prosperity. and then from california to new york, you have these other states where these governors, the government control and the far-left agenda is destroying these states that were beacons of hope and freedom and the american dream. it's really sad but that's why i'm extra motivated to want to too something about it. steve: all right. he would like to change his business card from congressman to governor lee zeldin. lee, thank you very much. ainsley: thank you. >> thank you, all. brian: he has a shot at long island, upstate new york, he has to find a way to get votes out of the city where we're. steve: there is a lot of frustration with parents
4:16 am
regarding the reopening of the schools and everything else given what mr. cuomo has done plus the 30% small businesses closing businesses. a lot of businessmen suddenly are looking for changes. ainsley: yeah. speaking of schools in san francisco. there was a school board meeting held over zoom and a student called in and she announces herself in this cheery voice and then she gets down to brass tacks. her name is zoey, a senator of a local high school she is furious. they can't get it together. there is all this infighting they can't get it together to open these schools. listen to. this i'm just here to honestly ask the board of education to pull it together. i would really ask all of you to examine why you are here and think back on why you chose to run for the board of education. and the only answer to that question is it be -- to fight for students. it feels like it's falling apart. brian: exactly. you have to go ahead.
4:17 am
if you do this, you don't do it for the money, you do it because you want to give back. all they do is fight with each other and they stay out of school and the kids sit on the sidelines this on zoom. same school that wanted to rename they wanted to rename all their schools and grammar schools and get rid of lincoln and paul revere and dianne feinstein and george washington because they were horrible people who weren't woke enough. so that was what they did. they later would throw that in the trash bin. i love that that senior spoke up. steve: she is a reporter for her high school newspaper. brian: good. steve: she said the school board is like a run away train, she said. aside from the fact that our news yesterday regarding the renaming of the schools, which they're going to put up until the fall when kids are back. brian: good. steve: keep in mind, it was the city attorney of san francisco that sued the school board to reopen the schools. she would like to be back at school where she belongs, she says. ainsley: fights for the students, 23409 the unions. put these kids back in school.

throughout the school system. they're also pushing, you suggest, critical race theory which essentially says that america and this is broadly, america is fundamentally racist. right? >> that's correct. steve: okay. so,. >> but they don't -- i'm sorry, steve, go ahead. steve: no, go ahead. >> they don't stop there, right? it's one of these things. it's always a moving target because they deny critical race theory then they say well, we are working with equity. and then it's culturally responsive framework. they keep moving the goal post at the end of the day it all means the exact same thing. steve: well, we have got a statement from the school board they said what you are seeing are snippets of much longer classes and lessons with no context, they say. the interim superintendent has never denied that critical race theory is discussed at loudoun county public schools. what he has stated is that students and staff are not indoctrinated into any school of
4:38 am
thought or philosophy. the school has not adopted a uniform equity curriculum but does have a cultural responsive framework. >> right. steve: you say despite that statement the students are being indoctrinated? >> yes. i mean, i think his statement is absolutely ridiculous because not ever have we questioned whether or not crt was being discussed. we have always said it's being taught in the schools. so that's just a play on words as far as i'm concerned. and then the other side of the coin is they are not up doctrineating or trying to change the thought or philosophy of our students and teachers in the school. has he not seep these two videos that came out? i mean, one was in the same daily caller article and then there was one just a couple weeks ago. steve: yeah. >> what he is trying to do is deflect with different terminology and it's not a discussion, right? they are teaching it. but that's the answer that they give all the time we're not doing it. and they will not address the

question and one of the things we are call for is for them to step up to the plate, hold a town hall, answer the questions and if i am flat out wrong i will apologize but i can promise you that i'm not. and we demonstrate every day this type of material that they're pushing in the classroom on our students and teachers. so he is factually incorrect. he is just tap dancing. steve: well, you would think that your call for a town hall is reasonable. you know, if they are putting out statements about it, why not have a discussion? >> well, exactly. steve, you are in the news so you are a lot more in tune with things than i am. i don't recall a school district being in the news cycle for 30 days straight, at least. steve: yeah, no kidding. >> virtually in the last three weeks a news story every single day. do you think you could come up with something better than we are not discussing critical race theory or we are not teaching it when we're providing evidence. this evidence, by the way, is coming directly from the school

we have really have made this point several times and president biden knows it. that open borders don't work. and they are exposing our citizens to more transnational gangs, the violence in our communities, more drugs pouring into our communities, sex and human trafficking out of control. and national security threats. and so we want the people of this nation along with the sheriffs to mobilize and let the president know that it's not okay to put his politics and this is a reckless effort on his part to put his politics before the safety and security of the people of this nation and our efforts to keep our promise and our oath to keep them safe. steve: sure. sheriff, you just mentioned national security. and the reason you mention that is because the border patrol took down a press release that announced that they did stop two guys from yemeni -- yemen who were on the terror watch list, the no fly list. apparently they have also admitted that since october they stopped four others. so that's six that we know of
4:47 am
are national security risks. ultimately. and this just proves that republicans have been right all along you have got to be careful on our southern border because bad guys could come on in with the migrants. >> steve, you are right. it goes back even further. this is the shame of all of this on the part of president biden. he and his dhs secretary were briefed and had meetings when he was vice president down in washington. steve: right. >> they know what open borders were doing to the people of our communities in regards to national security and that's not the first group that's come in. this has gone on for a lot of years. it's been reported on by you all and others. this president has chosen, again, to put his personal, political agenda before the safety and security of the people of this nation. there is nothing more fundamental than to be able to support the fundamental protections of our people. that's our obligation, our foremost obligation and to undermine sheriffs and our law enforcement partners at the state, local and federal level

is not okay. it's not what we're about and they should uphold their oath. ainsley: just making your jobs harder. if you look at the numbers back in 2018, we're going to look at the march numbers for these years. 2018 in march, just more than 50,000 encounters at the border. then the next year it went up double 103,000. then donald trump built the wall, the number went down to 34,000 last march. and then this march it's back up. estimated the numbers haven't come in for the month of march yet, but they are estimating it to be 171,000. what is president biden's agenda? why does he want this? >> well, it's clearly because of politics. because anyone who understands what your fundamental responsibility is when you take an oath and make a promise the people and you ignore that and expose them to greater dangers, simply to advance a political agenda speaks to the fact that he is plays to the progressive groups that are pro-illegals at

4:56 am
country. but they understand that but as it goes and i say time and time again, the ultimate goal is to gain control utilizing these measures. not necessarily to keep people safe because these measures don't do anything to keep anybody safe. brian: the way you attack a problem look at the problem, examine if there is any consistencies and see if there is something can you do legislatively. for example, look at the last 10 shootings or last two shootings, is there any consistencies there as a gun owner you could see hey, let's work together to solve this so the lunatics don't get guns? what do you see? why didn't they do this? >> well, i wouldn't be surprised if they actually did do this and study this and then came to a conclusion and realized this doesn't fit our agenda. because anybody who sees these shootings can immediately -- the vast majority of mass shootings happen in gun free zones vast majority of these shooters got their guns legally. so, what piece of legislation or law are you going to create to stop these kinds of things
4:57 am
except to put the people, the food people with firearms in a position to better or easily protect themselves when stuff like this does happen? like getting rid of gun free zones. they never entertain that thought. everything they do with respect to the gun control issue is based around how do you further restrict the right, making it harder for good people, it's always a punishment for the good people never anything that's actually designed to empower the good people to fight against bad people. brian: yeah, he is going to announce his head of atf at the same time announcing all of this. also talking about ghost guns where i understand that you can go order parts and put together a gun on your own, no serial numbers, can't be tracked. have ghost guns been addressed? >> i honestly think that the whole ghost gun issue is a red herring. all it is designed to scare the public who really doesn't truly understand this issue at finite level and get them to agree with anything that you say. think about it vast majority of criminals get their guns illegally on the black market anyway or stealing their guns. why are we having this
4:58 am
conversation when it doesn't do anything to actually make brian: right and they always talk about it's not listed here but what president biden has brought up before we got to get rid of assault weapons. your stand on that? >> i absolutely disagree with that. why are we even talking about this to be honest with you with respect to the biden administration. less than 1% of gun deaths in this country are the result of a r-15s which they falsely classify as assault weapons but i can demonstrate and show you tons of cases where people have used ar-15s to protect themselves. why are we even having this conversation? if they are being genuine about it we'd be talking about handgun s because over 80% of gun deaths in this country are committed by way of handguns so it's not about what gun does what. let's get to the root cause of these issues and deal with them but it's a lot easier to just say do you know what? let's just punish the good people and restrict people's rights with legislation because god forbid they roll up their

sleeves and do the hard work necessary to actually deal with the underlying issues with respect to gun violence in this country. brian: we'll see what they say. the president wants to do something on this , it's probably a non-starter so see what he could do from the oval office. colion noir thanks so much. final hour of fox & friends starts right now. >> from "coast to coast", from texas to california, the border is on fire. >> this country is mobilizing that ebola borders don't work. exposing our citizens to more transnational gangs. ainsley: san antonio, the governor, abbott, wants to shutdown the facility that's housing children because of reports of sexual abuse. >> the biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children. >> your governor is exactly right. the biden administration's contract with ngo's who have no business running the detention facilities. >> many critics of president biden's border policy are asking where is vice president harris? >> i'm wondering, is she still

, saying this. i spoke with president lopez of mexico today to thank him for his cooperation on migration issues. i look forward to working with him to address the root causes of migration by improving conditions for people in the region including in southern mexico. so, no plans for vice president harris. no plans for president biden to go to the border, but dhs second my orcas will go down there and travel to el paso and mcallen in his third trip to get briefed by these officials tweeting, text ing and calling me saying they've never seen anything like this before, ainsley, brian, steve? steve: griff thank you very much the president and vice president don't need to go. they've seen pictures, they watch the news and know what's going on. just about 15 minutes ago we had on a sheriff from the commonwealth of massachusetts. he had signed a letter along with 275 sheriffs from 39 states urging the president to stop playing politics at the border.
5:05 am
here is the sheriff. >> open borders don't work and they are exposing our citizens to more transnational gangs. the violence in our community, more drugs pouring into our communities, human trafficking out of control and now national security threats and so we want the people of this nation along with the sheriffs to mobilize and let the president know that it's not okay to put his politic s, and this is a wreckless effort on his part to put his politics before the safety and security of the people of this nation and our efforts to keep our promise and our oath to keep them safe. steve: wonder if the white house will write-back to the sheriffs. ainsley: i'm telling you what is heartbreaking too when you're reading about what's happening in san antonio texas, the governor there, governor abbott wants to shutdown one of these facilities and this is why there are allegations inside that facility of sexual assault, understaffing, the kids not being fed enough food, and covid -positive children not being isolated from others and family protective services is
5:06 am
involved. hhs is involved. family protective services says they have confirmed there's three separate reports of abuse. so that, when you know what's happening to these children inside some of these facilities, and then you see these heartbreaking images of kids being thrown over the wall, they don't have their mom with them, they are by themselves, they are three and five years old and this morning we wake up to see the images of that five and six-year-old that are siblings they come in with their mom's phone number on their arm and a note in their hand with their mom's phone number on it and they contacted the mom and trying to maybe get them re connected but they are checking out those kids to make sure they are in good health. these images and then to know that ms-13 gang members are coming through, the yemen terror suspects coming through those are the kids from this morning. brian: and here is what's amazing is you remember the out cry, that donald trump is not humanitarian and he's not treating people with respect, and the aoc coming out saying they are drinking out of toilets we showed you pictures, we're watching kids get dropped off 2u
5:07 am
kids streaming, crying. ainsley: not humane. brian: where is the outrage from senator elizabeth warren? what about former senator kamala harris? what about all of the protest in front of buildings? where is the outrage and other media outlets on the humanitarian crisis solely caused by the rhetoric and the indifference from the current president of the united states? 14 days without a press conference, from a vice president, that got the portfolio of the border, and then they changed it two days later saying no she's going to focus on the other countries. do you know what she's done? made one call to mexico. got the president on the line, take your time. its only been six weeks of hell. greg abbott has had it. the governor of texas has been ignored. he has not been informed, and now, he's getting reports of what's going on in their facility in san antonio, and he had a presser yesterday. >> these problems are a by product of president biden's open border policies.
5:08 am
this facility is a health and safety nightmare. the biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children. to end this abuse, the biden administration must immediately shutdown this facility. the children who are in this facility should be moved to other federally-run facilities where the federal government has the space, personnel, and resources to ensure their safety. steve: so the state of texas is going to investigate that facility. senator john cornyn has called on on the inspector general of the department of homeland security to investigate. the white house says they will investigate those allegations, ainsley, and they are shocking that you made repeated, that have been made, but here is the thing. the white house said okay we're going to investigate but we don't see any reason at this point to close the place down, and why is that?
5:09 am
because they got no place else to put them. ainsley: tom homan was on our show earlier and he really explained how these facilities, how they choose these facilities this is a non-government organization facility. he said there are government facilities that have people ready and on standby to handle this , that have been trained to handle this but these ngo's are not trained for it and he said these kids are the ones that are damaged as a result. listen to tom. >> here is what they're talking about. the biden administration's contract with ngo's who have no business running these detention facilities. the washington examiner just broke a story last night about the way these contracts are being rub. we have family residential centers that are licensed run by contractors who work through i.c.e., who have pediatricians on site, social workers on site, child psychologists. these were build for vulnerable people, women, and children, and they're practically empty because the biden administration
5:10 am
calls them for-profit prisons so they would rather walk away from the state-of-the-art facility, the gold standard, for vulnerable people, they walk away from these facilities and leave them half empty and they are signing contracts with fellow ngo's? brian: so what i find fascinating is that kamala harris is supposed to lead this. can you imagine if mike pence just said oh, mr. president you want me to lead the pandemic recovery? i don't think so. that's really what the vice president told the president, they can try to spin it any other way i don't buy it, but i was wrong. there was some out right expressed on the left from national figures. it was illan ohmar, she tweeted out when word leaked out they might finish the wall that leaves huge gaps she tweeted that it's shameful and acceptable for the president to continue the construction of trump's racist wall, but what's going on here with the children and facilities and to burning hotels and the sexual assault allegations that you just heard from the governor doesn't really get her twitter feed, meanwhile
5:11 am
where is kamala harris? all you could have found her in new haven, connecticut for four days was in washington d.c., time to move in. ainsley: and you name the place and i'll tell you what she's doing. brian: washington d.c. ainsley: moving into the renovated naval observatory. brian: april 1-4. ainsley: she was in brentwood, california celebrating easter with her family. brian: over to oakland, california. ainsley: she was meeting with gavin newsom and talking to him and supporting him during this potential recall election. brian: wonder if she would help him pack up at all they did such a great job in san francisco there and april 6 she was in chicago talking infrastructure. ainsley: visiting a bakery. steve: look at that, so, you know, i think over the last couple of weeks, this has started to leave a mark, where people are asking the questions. okay, put her in charge of the root causes, but she seems to be more interested and this is a narrative, in decorat ing the observatory where she and her husband will live, rather than actually addressing it. and i think that is why she got
5:12 am
on the phone yesterday with the president of mexico where afterwards, she thanked him for his cooperation on migration why would she thank the president of mexico for all the help? we just got 170,000 people crossing out of his country into our country illegally, so why didn't she say to him, hey, thanks it was only 170,000, it could have been so many more. steven nelson, whose a writer and reporter, for the white house, down for the new york post was in the briefing room yesterday and asked about the vice president's travel over the last couple of weeks and why she wasn't at the border and i don't think jen psaki liked that question. >> is she still working on this and can you address the perception that she's kind of quietly backing off while secretary mayorkas is pursuing into trump era policies. >> first i would say the vice president was visiting chicago
5:13 am
actually to talk about covid and the importance of communities getting the vaccine when it's available and accessible to them and so while she was there, like many americans, she got a snack. i think she's allowed to do that she's absolutely an issue that she remains committed to. the northern triangle which i'm sure you're aware of but is not the same as the border. brian: like an action shot of the vice president looking at the speaker phone, while i guess talking to the mexican president good thing she's in charge of things. so, by the way you might want to say can we redo that deal that president trump cut where you put marines on your southern border and yet a remain in mexico policy. let's change gears and talk about the boycott in georgia which in many ways is blowing up some revelations that have come up that led to rob manfred pulling the all-star game july 13 out of georgia and sending it over to colorado. it turns out that lebron james and his surrogates along with al
5:14 am
sharpton as well as stacey abrams pushed the commissioner to pull the game out, why? because he says the players were going to boycott so he goes okay , i'm out. really? there's no signs that the player is going to boycott. we don't even know whose in the game yet. i don't really think the players even speaking in one unified voice doing this thing called playing baseball so lebron james , who credited baseball for doing this , but interesting stacey abrams panicking because they lost at least $100 million worth of revenue to atlanta is saying well i didn't mean for you to pull out, but she started it with her poll-tested term jim crow 2.0. steve: yeah, and ultimately given the fact that $100 million will not be going to those vendors and the small businesses in atlanta with the all-star game there, and instead the governor of colorado says i think we're going to we stand to take in $190 million. thank you very much, major league baseball.
5:15 am
and stacey abrams realizing the backlash of all of that money out of her state because in a couple of year, ainsley, she's going to need those people who are being harmed by this decision to leave the state she's going to need them to look for her. ainsley: can you imagine having a business there being so excited, you're about to make a lot of money for your family, and then they pull the plug on it? thankfully the master's is staying. the master's is going to stay in augusta. alveda king was on our show earlier and she lives in atlanta and she's against all of this boycotting. listen to this. >> to make decisions based on what you call jim crow and you don't even remember what jim crow was. we were fighting to be identified, to be recognized equally as citizens. you takeaway our identity and you say you don't need an id. why do you need an id. they should have done something in my opinion to at the last election to make sure that people had opportunities to be
5:16 am
identified. we fought against jim crow insisting, give me my identity. see me as a human being equally and people want to steal your identity and convince you don't even need an identity? ainsley: she was talking about using id's when you have to vote and that's what a lot of people are complaining about in georgia it just prevents people from the election, from people lying. steve: a lot of states have id requirements. ainsley: how great is her point. she said we fought to have an identity. jim crow was trying to takeaway our identity. we fought to have i dent it and she said i am proud to holdup my id and be an american and go and vote. steve: daily wire did a necessary and a lot of people are okay with asking for id. about almost 80%, 78% support georgia's voter id requirements for absentee ballots so 80% of america thinks that's okay. brian: right. steve: what's going on? brian: you know what i thinks
5:17 am
okay tossing it up to jillian. hey jillian. jillian: i gladly accept good morning. let's begin with a fox news alert. you heard it here first. republican congressman lee zeldin officially announcing his run for new york governor right here on fox & friends. excell of zeldin told us the main reason behind his decision. >> to save our state, andrew cuomo has got to go. i'm all in. we're all in, losing is not an option and we have to turn things around. jillian: zeldin says he wants to return new york to its former glory. he's the first republican to challenge governor andrew cuomo. >> another fox news alert, eight people are hurt and one person missing following an explosion at an ohio paint plant overnight the moment of the columbus blast was caught on camera. two people are in critical condition. the area around the factory was evacuated over concerns of dangerous materials inside the building. >> police escort the body of fallen capitol officer billy evans to a virginia funeral home
5:18 am
the 18 year department veteran was killed last week when a man rammed his car into officers guarding the capitol. the dead suspect, noah green, was a supporter of the nation of islam. the group leader mourning green 's death, saying in part, " he would have been a star in the mission of the resurrection of our people." congress will pay tribute to officer evans and his heroic sacrifice next week with a lying in honor ceremony in the capitol rotunda. >> celebrity zookeeper jack hanna is diagnosed with dementia the beloved tv host is known for bringing exotic animals into americans living rooms. >> i watch this. >> the 74-year-old family revealing he will be stepping away from public life, write in in a statement, his condition has progressed much faster in the last few months than any of
5:19 am
us could have anticipated. those are a look at your headlines and devastating news for the family. wish them well. steve: indeed, and jack has been on this program probably close to 50 times, and so we're all thinking about him. brian: one of our best guests ever. ainsley: i know. 19 minutes, thanks jillian, 19 minutes after the top of the hours, house minority whip steve scalise is leading a delegation to the border and he will join us with what he expect s to learn about this growing crisis. brian: plus the countdown is on , first a look at the brand new fully electronic, electric i should say, hummer, ev coming up >> ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪

5:24 am
brian: do you believe these pictures? unbelievable, two siblings just five and six years old saved by border agents all by themselves. the latest in the surge of minor s abandoned at the border. the rescue comes as apprehensions explode to record levels. these are the people that turn themselves in but according to nancy pelosi, joe biden's policies are really working well >> the fact is is that we're on a good path at the border, under leadership of joe biden, president biden. we were in a very bad situation under the trump adminitration. brian: well the good news for her is most of her constituents are homeless without cable tv, know the to hear that sound bite. house minority whip steve scalise is leading a delegation to texas for a firsthand look to see if nancy pelosi is actually right, so how the biden policies working at the border? does she believe what she just said, congressman? >> brian, i don't know how she could even say that with any credibility because if you talk to anybody on the ground, and talked to a lot of people on the
5:25 am
ground, it is beyond a disaster. what they've done, not only to these border towns, the mayors you hear them democrat and republican, expressing outrage over what president biden created. joe biden created this crisis, but the child abuse and neglect that's going on, it's not just the 20-plus day trecks that some of these young kids are taking 10 years old in many cases over a third of the girls are being sexually assaulted or raped along the journey and then they get to the united states and you see how they are being treated not given proper food and shelter being put next to somebody six inches apart with covid. all this is going on on the border you can see why vice president kamala harris either doesn't want to have this dumped in our lap because joe biden created a mess and is asking to mop it up or else she's in over her head. either way, it doesn't bode well for the united states. our allies around the world surely mexico had worked with president trump to come up with a good plan to remain in mexico
5:26 am
policy, but think about this too , brian. you've got now at least six people on the terrorist watch list that have been caught. they won't tell us how many more , no doubt there's many more that have come across our border this isn't from central and south america. this is from middle eastern countries, other nations where they have people on the terrorist watch list that know there's a poor southern border and if you want to come and do harm in america, it's free reign. it's open season, and this is dangerous for america, and it's even more dangerous to these kids that president biden's policies have encouraged to come across and make the tech and get sexually assaulted along the way. brian: when you look at joe biden's approval ratings they are pretty high when it comes to the 1.9 trillion because we don't have the money and now he wants 2.2 trillion people get money out of that. when it comes to immigration it's in its 40s. i don't even know how four out of 10 people think this is going well. you want to solve the problem. there are democrats that want to
5:27 am
solve the problem like gonzalez. congressman, is this something you can do at the legislative level and get to the secretary mayorkas to close the gaps in the wall, to cut a deal that works that was working with mexican, to deal with the triangle countries because this is really causing a problem in america, let alone what's going on in these facilities. these people are not getting papers that are being brought through like a revolving door. what can you do? >> yeah, and look there's bipartisan interest in solving this , i think more and more members recognize that it's a crisis. you see henry cuellar, a democrat as well as others that are expressing outrage with president biden's decision to create this but you don't have to reinvent the wheel. the remain in mexico policy was working maybe just because donald trump came up with it, joe biden can call it his own idea, and then redo what president trump did that was working with mexico. mexico was not only defending our southern border. they were defending their own southern border and paying for it and it was stopping that
5:28 am
flow of migrants. they can't even handle this surge that's coming across our border and they are taking over military bases, the dallas convention center, all of them are getting overrun, and the people on the ground are telling you they can't control it. its got to stop. joe biden needs reverse this deadly devastating policy. brian: you know as bad as things were president trump never told border patrol don't talk to people. he never told the officials, the sheriffs not to talk to people. they have been hushed border patrol, the only thing they can do is allow, tell you the story and then you could tell it here. so we look forward to getting your impressions when you're done. congressman, thanks so much. >> great with being you, brian. thank you. brian: coming up straight ahead the countdown is on in just minutes we'll bring you an exclusive look at the all electric super truck, i'm talking about a hummer ev. grady trimble live from michigan , grady? reporter: brian, here it is, right here, the hummer ev suv. not a gas guzzler anymore, we'll

5:34 am
it's decked out with all sorts of off-road capabilities, and as you would expect as well, it's great for highway driving too. if you take a look inside, you can see a little bit of the features on the dash there. it has hands-free driving technology that lets you over take cars on the highway without the driver's hands even being on the wheels, and it can go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds thanks to its three electric motors. one of the more unique features about this vehicle is called crab walk. let me show you a video of what that looks like it's where all four of the wheels rotate diagonally in the same direction at the same time and the car can essentially move horizontally. i talked to the head of gmc who tells me that when this hits the road in early 2023 it'll be one of the first large electric suv's to do so. listen. >> the incredibly fast product development cycle, two years, fastest we've ever developed a vehicle, gives us that advantage
5:35 am
but it's not just being first to market. it's what the vehicle is and as they say, it's a truly revolutionary vehicle. reporter: and when you think of hummer you don't necessarily think of an electric vehicle but general motors says by reviving an iconic brand like this they hope it makes the public more comfortable with electric vehicles. >> we just flipped the script and made it zero emissions, electric vehicle, with that capability. i think a lot of people's minds got changed, so yes, i think there will be an adoption process and that adoption process to electric vehicles will speed up as we go through this decade. reporter: you might have already seen this one, this is previously unveiled. it's the hummer ev electric truck. this will actually be on the roads later this year, should mention the price tag on these, above $100,000 for both models, but as time goes by, general motors will be releasing more models and the starting price on some of those will be
5:36 am
as low as $80,000. steve, ainsley, brian? steve: that is so cool, and 800- horsepower? i know a corvette is like 500 that's amazing. but grady, also, because it has a 6k power station, you can plug things into it, or you could use it to charge up another electric vehicle, right? reporter: yeah, you can and actually one other thing that i wanted to mention that i didn't before is that all four of these roof panels actually can be removed from the vehicle, so you have essentially an open-air ride and since there's no engine in the front, it's essentially another trunk. you can lift this up and store it all in there, so a lot of cool features with this vehicle. ainsley: that parallel parking i'm terrible. i like how you just slide into the space. steve: grady thank you very much live report from michigan. all right, meanwhile coming up, philadelphia's district attorney is facing a tough re-election battle over his progressive

5:40 am
5:41 am
ainsley: crime is on the rise in philadelphia and critics are pointing to the progressive policies of their district attorney. the city's police union is urging republican officers to switch parties, to vote against
5:42 am
da larry craftner in next month's primary as his own party refuses to endorse him. we can give you some of the numbers. crime in philadelphia is up 32%. in 2020, they had 98 homicides and in 2021, there was 129. then shooting incidents in 2020, 674 and in 2021, 902, up 33.8% and then shooting victims, 2,020 , 359 and in 2021, up to 498. that's up 38.7%. so, guys what's happening in this area? the democratic committee voted not to endorse the incumbent larry craftner because of so many of these crimes going up. let's bring in john mcnesby, the president of the philadelphia fraternal order of police. good morning to you, john. >> good morning. ainsley: so you're asking people if they're republicans asking your officers if they are republicans to switch so that they can vote for the other person. why is that?
5:43 am
>> well right now, we have, most of our members are republican. we're having them switch over to vote in the primary and we're switching them right back, right after the primary. that's so we can get as many votes as we can. if we have officers switch, their families switch, their relatives switch, anybody we can to make sure we knock this guy off come may 18. ainsley: and you want them to vote for carlos vega. why do you like carlos better than larry krasner. >> carlos is a career prosecutor. he was let go under the reign or the wrath of larry krasner. he's experienced, he's very wele s about the people in the community, unlike his opponent. ainsley: why are all these crimes going up there? >> well we have, there's these people on the street doing this and there's not a whole lot of them but they know there's no repercussions. they know if they are caught, nothings going to happen. there's a catch and release program here in philadelphia.
5:44 am
just this past week, we've had a number of homicide homicides, we're over 130 for this year alone, on pace for a record again this year, which is something you don't want to lead the league in. we've had a number of shootings this year, again, kids, everybody, but again, there's no repercussions, no fear, they know nothings going to happen to them. we just had an officer shot last night. we're waiting today to see why the person was out on the street he cut sweetheart deals behind the scenes. he lets people out of jail, and some people need to stay in jail , and that's not happening here in philadelphia. ainsley: his campaign did send us a statement and they said we are unsurprised to see the fop throwing a hail mary begging republicans to change their resignation to vote in the democratic primary, in a desperate attempt to regain relevance. it will not work, the people get to choose and they know that
5:45 am
larry krasner fights for them. what's your reaction to that? >> well guess what? i wish he keeps taking this , if he keeps taking this as lightly as he is we're going to be fine come may 18. the fact is is that he has, he just blows people off. he has no respect for the community. no respect for victims of crime, and i guess a year or two ago it was just the fop out there screaming about this and now, it's in every part and every neighborhood and every part of the city, so people are catching on to this. they realize that it's not safe to be here in philadelphia, and it's not safe while he's sitting in the seat of the district attorney and we need to make a change. ainsley: real quickly are your officers on board with you? >> absolutely. we've got about 9,000 people switched total and hopefully, we'll get that up by the deadline, and carlos is out there working the streets, he's working the neighborhoods, out there connecting with people and that's what we need. ainsley: okay good deal. thank you so much, john, for what you do. thanks for your service.
5:46 am

5:53 am
>> its been very challenging. you know, the main goal what we do at wwe is to put smiles on people's faces so it's kind of hard when we don't have fans there physically but we have had the dome which provides us with virtual fans but wrestlemania was april 10 and 11 will be the first time that we're having fans back and have 25,000 fans each night, we're following safety protocols so we are keeping everyone safe but entertaining everyone. the fans put a smile on our face and going to be amazing to hear the cheers and the boo's and just be able to feed off of them and it's going to feel like a family reunion. steve: indeed, are they going to make you wear a mask or anything like that? what are the safety protocols for the actual wrestlers? >> well we always do social distancing, masks are always required even for the fans, we want to provide masks at the door, there's a cashless concessions, back stage we follow all safety proto protocols we always sanitize everything, and then when we're out there, of course, we're out there in our wrestling gear but following all safety protocols

to keep everyone safe. steve: right and this will be historic. your match will be historic won't it? >> yes! i'm facing sasha banks who is the smackdown champion and she calls herself the best, i'm call myself the strongest, fastest, and the quickest and the best and it is the first time that two african american women are having a title match at wrestlemania so we're definitely creating history on april 10 at raymond james stadium. steve: that's great. how did you get into this business? i know you were at the university of tennessee on the honor roll, you ran track. how did you wind up in this ? hello? bionca? can you hear me? i don't think you can. all right, anyway, we had an audio problem. like to remind you though, watch bianca in the special wrestlemania edition of smack down, tomorrow at 8:00 p.m.
