11:19 am
one of our top stories, unfolding humanitarian crisis continue on our seven border. federal border agents say they've been overwhelmed by the sheer number of migrants who continue to cross into our country. the number is steadily increasing for nearly a year now skyrocketed in february and march and the flow so far shows no signs of stopping. republican congressman of texas joins us, former mayor in texas, you know what it's like on the
11:20 am
front lines. the number of unaccompanied children from central america hit a record number last month. almost 19000, that's about 600 day they make a dangerous check and they're still coming, what actions would you like to see the biden administration take? >> i'd like the biden administration to actually listen to the folks who have warned them if they change their policy, is exactly what would happen if they were in the room when you talk to people like tom cotton or mark morgan, they were in the room talking to biden and advisors telling him if you move forward and opened the border, if you move forward on deportation, you will see a surge, expect to see drug and human smugglers in our country at record numbers so the idea that this is normal and it happens every year is completely else the biden administration was warned this would happen and they did it anyway. the numbers we are seeing
11:21 am
skyrocketed unlike anyone seen in history. look at the numbers already with illegal crossings in the month of march. estimated anywhere between 107 -- 250,000 people. compare that to this time last year, 30,000 people. but what i like to see them do go back to the programs we had, the policies we've had under the last administration to prevent the surges, they kept the kids with their families and kept them in the country in their country so they don't have to make the trek from mexico, they were sexually assaulted on the way, they want betrayed by coyotes and they were separated spent thousands of miles away from the family. that's what i would like. i'm sorry. >> the administration says they put out the message and say the border is closed others say that is not the message some of these
11:22 am
people are getting, they understand the administration for example is releasing into the country, 71% up from last month, 173% in terms of the family's month to month the administration says dispatching officials to talk to the countries and perhaps try to get money to deal with the problem. do you think that is enough? >> i do. eric: you're still there. >> absolutely not. what we saw again in the last administration, they already had deals with the other countries, but they would hold them until they were able to apply for asylum ripped up as soon as the biden administration came through. the rhetoric we are going to have open borders and we heard them loud and clear, human smugglers and drug smugglers. that's who they empowered,
11:23 am
millions of dollars and you look at the biden administration, they are the best team of smugglers they've ever had. they are enriching them and empowering them and unfortunately at the cost of not only citizens but all the other unaccompanied minors you see coming into the country. i saw kids squished into pods originally built for 250 people during covid, covid restrictions now had 5000, what i saw was not being tested for covered, customs and border patrol and protection doing the best they can with the resources they have. i also saw miles of the most exposed, patients who would normally be patrolling them had
11:24 am
to be pulled into deal with processing because of the search. areas where drug smugglers are coming in, human traffickers have access and all this was completely in control of the biden administration calls the crisis. it's heartbreaking, we're trying to do our best to show an exclusive what's going on, that's why you see so many republican congressman going down and showing videos. we wrote a letter, seeing the biden administration because of their failure to enforce title 42 which would keep people from covid from crossing into our borders and exposing our first responders to this terrible virus. what we are seeing is a double standard in telling the rest of the country we are at risk of shutdown, closing business, keeping kids out of school but the borders are completely ignoring. eric: the administration, title
11:25 am
42 as a reason to expel they say they are expelling adults under the public health restriction but it is on both sides, a terrible situation and your heartbreaks, especially for these young kids who have to go through this, this is what they face. >> we saw 5700 folks silly, not one was tested for covered. eric: that's a horrible situation. mayor of irving, texas, we'll see if something comes with the request as this situation shows so far no sign of ending. thank you for joining us today. arthel: pfizer said insights on kids younger than 16 as the cdc recommends all school-age kids return to the classroom fall, a look at the impact of the vaccine on children just ahead.

pfizer is asking fda to approve emergency use of its covid vaccine for children ages 12 -- 15. data showing shots are one 100%
11:31 am
effective in the age group. if approved, the vaccine could be available in less than a month. the cdc says all school kids across the country should be back in classrooms by fall. doctor freda fisher joins us now, certified in pediatrics and internal medicine. i want to take a step back first, based on what's currently known, what does covid due to an adolescent body? >> many children asymptomatic but not all children. of all kids being hospitalized, one third are admitted to the icu so children and adolescents can get a respiratory illness and they can even get long-haul or the long covid we talked about such as brain fog, poor concentration, blood clot, neurological problems to adolescents are not immune to covered. arthel: i'm going to have you answer this question, i'm sure parents want to know, why should parents allow their 12 -- 15
11:32 am
euros to get covid vaccine? >> is an excellent question and this is why, we have long known children can be a source of transmission the variance arrived, they find children especially the ones in care, they are increasingly spreading covid and spreading it to their parents and grandparents tend to get sicker. we now have to study, it is amazing looking at 2260 children between 12 -- 15, they've got the placebo versus the real pfizer vaccine. eighteen got sick and all were in the placebo group to what does that mean? the vaccine is one 100% effective in children 12 -- 15 if we get the children vaccinated face-to-face school will be safer. less transmission of the virus closer to her community that we need. children make up about 24% of
11:33 am
the population so without them, we are not likely to get over this pandemic so the vaccine is safe for children according to the data and research, parents let the kids the vaccinations. arthel: should parents be concerned about adverse effects from the vaccine down the road? >> according to this data, children have the same side effects profile as an adult so they have some of the immediate side effects like sore arm, some got a little feverish or chills but long-term we don't have the actual answer but thus far, it looks like long-term effects we expect from the vaccine adults, which at this time were not predicting, you would expect in children so basically it looks like the vaccine just as safe for 15-year-old as it is an adult is a robust study where we've looked at over 100,000 adults and now millions of adults have gotten the vaccine is now it's looking like safety
11:34 am
and side effect profile and our children. arthel: i want to talk about adults now, the parents of these children we are talking about and that brings me to shingles. what is shingles? who gets it, how you catch it? should they get the same shingles vaccine? >> that's such a good question. shingles is nobody's friend. it's a reactivation of the chickenpox virus so if you have had chickenpox or even the vaccine in some cases, years down the road you can get shingles which is a painful infection that affects one side of the body on the skin, it can be painful nerve like and you get a blister and some shingles can get a debilitating neuralgia which causes severe pain. good news is that we have a safe vaccination for shingles and if you get the vaccination, it's over 90% effective you likely will not get the shingles. the people who should get the
11:35 am
vaccine are over the age of 50, if you're 50 and older, you should get it and shots of two doses, two to six months apart, it's a dead vaccine so you have no chance of getting the shingles from the vaccine so you don't want the shingles, you should get the vaccine. arthel: so if you get the vaccine, he said there are two so once i get the double dose in the appropriate time, is that it will do i keep getting a shingles shot? >> that's it. two months apart, you have over 90% chance of being a man, even older people, and 70s, it is great. there was another vaccine that came out in 2006 before this one and that was only about 50% effective and even 40% in older people but the one the cdc recommends so if you have had chickenpox or even the vaccine in your and older or
11:36 am
immunocompromised, definitely is recommended you get the shingles vaccine. arthel: okay, i keep hearing and seeing commercials, i'm going to ask what is this? what should i do about it? i want to wrap up, another 30 or 40 seconds with you and i want to go back to the kids. the cdc says listen, pretty much most if not all kids school-age kids will be back in the classroom come this fall, i know you said you recommend parents have their kids vaccinated for covered, the vaccine is safe. do you think a little off topic but kind of not but i want to go, do you think much like you have to bring whatever vaccination papers to school, do you think the covid vaccine should be on the list, included on the list, my child has been vaccinated? >> that is a tricky topic because right now the vaccine only has emergency use
11:37 am
authorization and they have not gone through the full two years after you receive the second dose. it's difficult to require they've done it so right now what i recommend is scientists, physicians and healthcare providers just keep pushing and pushing the evidence and reality we are in a real pandemic, we've had over 80000 cases a day, we've got death continuing, variance on the rise so i hope people take a community perspective and responsibly and that they get the vaccine. down the road once we receive a general authorization that i do believe likely there will be requirements much like measles mumps and rubella and all these vaccines we've been getting all our lives but right now with just having the eua and not even receiving the children yet, i think we just have to make best recommendations for the community and go from there. arthel: thank you for delicately
11:38 am
answering that delicate question, appreciated having you on and we look forward to next time. >> thank you. ♪♪ eric: supreme court blocking covers restriction on religious services in california. the latest, the number of rulings that have gone against these measures. 524 ruling that happened last night, justices looked at governor gavin newsom's orders that have limited home-based religious worship and bible studies and prayer meetings at home. more on the impact of this and what the ruling said. reporter: the ruling specifically impacts religious gatherings inside private homes like bible study classes or prayer meetings and in that vote, the supreme court basically unassigned order that lives california's restrictive nonsecular get-togethers in private residencies. the majority of the opinions say
