3:04 am
unquote, police account ability, is that right, david? reporter: three officials at the justice department are walking an incredibly fine line because they want to honor police departments across the country according to officials, but at the same time those not following procedure or following the law, the justice department pledges to take some sort of action here. as you mention declines in sign-ups across the country. read something from a spokesperson, mike nelian from the philadelphia fraternal order of police, representing thousands of police officers in philadelphia. he says it is the perfect storm. we're anticipating the department will be understaffed by several hundred members because hundred of guys are either retiring or taking other jobs and leaving the department. meanwhile congresswoman ilhan omar from minnesota says this coming week she will announce a measure to create a federal board that would investigate police misconduct, taking investigations from the local level. it would be similar to the
3:05 am
national transportation safety board, ntsb which investigates accidents. she told a local station in minneapolis, this will be a proactive board that does the work of our country. making sure the agents of the law are taking their oath seriously and the work they're doing helps communities feel safe. right now the department of justice, reporting on the past few days, investigating the minneapolis police department after thekying of george floyd. i'm told the investigation could take more than a month, even more than a year. back to you three. pete: david spunt, thank you very much. that was what i wanted for christmas, a proactive board overrun by ilhan omar. rachel: there are a still investigations she is still under. pete: true. will: the sort of double-edged sword it is when you come to federal funding, that they are giving local police departments money. they can take it away. we're looking this morning. not that much the feds give to
3:06 am
local and state police departments. we'll see how much influence should this get passed, should ilhan omar get what she wants, how much influence could they wield? rachel: i believe what i read, whatever the conclusions are, their investigations can be used in a court of law prosecuting. pete: interesting. over the show will was driving us hear. reading him the run downof the show like a sweet lala by all the way in. our next element, keith farrell, columbus, ohio, police president and the rise violence. >> we're hearing rhetoric, demilitarizing the police, taking away tools to make sure community safe. trying to stop us from hiring more police officers, and delaying police officer class. the trickle-down effect we're seeing in columbus, ohio, they set in their watch, 2020, highest homicide numbers in the history of columbus. in 2021 we're on pace to blow that out of the water.
3:07 am
pete: yep, bad trajectory across the board. rachel: what do you expect to happen? that is what will happen. a lot of law enforcement a grandfather and a son, grandson all become cops. a lot of cops are just not retiring, not encouraging their sons to go into the profession where they might have a legacy. who would under these conditions? what will happen in the end, you get what you have in latin america, unless you're rich, you can afford private security, that is how, when you defund the police, look at latin america, those are police forces that are not properly funded. some towns in mexico the cartels run them. how would you like your too be run by subcontract antifa to keep security in your town? that is the path we're on. will: to that point "the washington examiner" has an op-ed. cancel cult turf comes to the cops. here is quote from the op-ed, liberals signal virtue, want
3:08 am
woke points strip as much context out of the tragedies. the difficult of the facts into the narrative make these distortions. hating cops, willing to lie about them, is a virtue. white house, lebron james will be to signal that virtue. that is on the heels what happened in the columbus, ohio, on the mahkia bryant shooting. will: word with cancel culture is accountability. saw lebron james use it in his tweet. once you hear it once, you start to hear it time and time again, if you pay attention. the left doesn't want to admit it is cancel culture, it is accountability. time for accountability for you, for you, for you, that means go away, be quiet, sit down, don't say positive things about the police. as we were driving here, accountability is in coaching,
3:09 am
parentings. rachel: reimagining the police. these phrases end up becoming part of the language. pete: there was another program on last night, first of all headline from the "new york post" that caught our eye as well, here is the headline. said anti-race i am themed messaging hurts democratic pols, politicians, yale study finds. maybe they're finding, being woke and talking about anti-race i am which really sounds like race i talk doesn't help you at the ballot box because it doesn't meet most people where they're at in their lives. they have worked hard to move past race, treat people fairly. suddenly they're being told to reexamine it. maybe it does hurt them in the polls. will: bill maher, you started talking about another program, bill maher is increasingly unpredictable talking about the political climate. talking about the ideas, are they truly popular, or is the left running away essentially from where mainstream america's
3:10 am
thought is. here he was on hbo. >> you know the reason why advertisers in this country love the 18-34 demographic? because it is the most gullible. yeah. a third of people under 35 say they're in favor of abolishing the police. 36% of millenials think it might be a good idea to try communism. but much of the world did try it. i know millenials think that doesn't count because they weren't alive when it happened. but it did happen. so when you say, you're old, you don't get it, get what? abolish the police, border patrol and capitalism and cancel lincoln. i get it. the problem i don't get what you're saying or i'm old. the problem your ideas are stupid. rachel: your ideas are stupid. he is so right. you know, you mentioned, i was listening to what you were saying, i agree with you, pete, there is certain generation. i think bill maher hit on it, young people who have been
3:11 am
completely indoctrinated by these ideas. you can't blame them for not thinking communism, socialism, are not bad because their textbookses are literally scrubbed of millions of people who died from that evil ideology. they don't know, their history book is howard zinn anti-american history. pete: american history written from the soviet perspective. how evil we are. a old poll could be capture older generations are scared bit idea of woke cancel culture. young people iced to it, they have been marinated in it. that is mortifying. we'll turn to additional headlines before we talk more about talladega and this awesome race. including this. a man is charged in the shooting after 7-year-old girl at at chicago drive-through. marion lewis is facing 16 charges in connect, connection with jasmine adams death. he crashed his car on a highway,

♪. pete: welcome back to "fox & friends weekend." we remain live from talladega superspeedway. counting down to the geico 500 race today. also a whole bunch of other stories including this. the job network is ramping up pressure of mlb commissioner rob manfred over his decision to pull the all-star game out of atlanta. they have a times square billboard that will go up tomorrow, explaining the to it will take on small businesses as they're fighting to recover from covid-19 lockdowns. here is elaine parker, chief communications officer for the job creators network. elaine, thanks so much for being here this morning. you're going on the offense, hey, mr. commissioner, if you do this, move this out of atlanta to denver we'll call you out for it. are you hopeful maybe they reconsider the decision? >> thanks for having me, pete. we call them like we see them and the commissioner clearly has
3:18 am
all strikes, and no balls. we put up the billboard in times square. think about it. strikes one, gave into the woke crowd and misinformation about lies about the georgia voting law. two, he made the decision to move the game out of georgia, based on false information. third he cost the state $100 million mainly hurting minority businesses. we're here to demand he bring the game back to the state of georgia because three strikes you're out. pete: true, good point. you talk about the dem of course grays, atlanta, denver, we have a demographic who it would be affecting moving the game. in the city of atlanta, you have a 51% black population. the city of denver not even over 10%. when you move the business out with millions of dollars of economic impact you're taking away benefit of black americans in atlanta and shifting it to white businesses in denver.
3:19 am
>> atlanta, you mentioned 51%, there are nine times black-owned businesses in atlanta than in denver. as much as they are following all of this misinformation and perpetuating all of these lies they're actually hurting the very people they claim to be helping. overall small businesses in atlanta will be hurt. we spoke with minority-owned small business owner who has a limo business. he was very excited about this game coming to atlanta, getting his employees back to work and now he is not only worried about losing this, this event but future events that may not stay in atlanta, may decide to go elsewhere based on misinformation. pete: i'm glad, such knee-jerk nonsense from major league baseball. we talked about the small businesses impacted not to mention the voter integrity laws are more stringent in denver than atlanta. you can't make up the entirety of this story. i wonder if he ever admits his mistake.
3:20 am
giving him every opportunity to do so. real quick, elaine, this week will mark joe biden's first 100 days in office. it has been a tough 100 days for small businesses, from covid lockdowns to regulations. they're talking about increasing taxes. what, keystone xl pipeline, certain sectors being targeted. what is the your evaluation of small business in america in the first 100 days of joe biden? >> the first 100 days of the biden administration has been a declaration of war on small businesses. the policies out of this administration are rapid fire against small businesses. they're costing jobs, raising energy prices, making it harder to find workers and operate their businesses but by far, as you mentioned, pete, the biggest threat to small businesses is the increase in taxes and even the support of the "pro act," which frankly has so many negatives we're actually calling is the con act. million of small businesses out there structured as corporations and they will face a 33% tax
3:21 am
increase coming out of the worst pandemic we've ever seen. millions of small businesses shut down across the country. as they're coming out, we're starting to reopen, many states, you know, are open 100%, they're going to face these huge tax increases and they just, it is not fair. these, this is bad policy, hurts small businesses, hurts workers, hurts our economy. pete: well-said, elaine parker chief communications officer for the job creates network. thank you for your time. i can see why you're the chief communications officer. you're very well-said. appreciate your time. >> thanks, pete. reporter: got it. coming up mahkia buy ant's godmother will sue because of the death of her daughter. instead of going after police, we need to look at the foster care system.

♪. >> like that again. welcome back to "fox & friends weekend," live from talladega superspeedway. now to another story we're following. the mother of an ohio teen fatally shot by police after appearing to lung at another woman with a knife reportedly planning to sue amid multiple reports of 911 calls, seven, were made from the foster home in the last six months. as the death sparks unrest and anti-police protests in the country, our next guest says it is not the police who should be blamed here. christopher harris executive director of unhypenated america. she joins us now. thanks so much for being here, chris. the tragedy in ohio started long before that day, it appears. just for a moment on the facts of the case. mahkia bryant, a lot of people don't know details behind the scenes. she was living in a foster home.
3:26 am
apparently interaction, confrontation she was having with another young woman was another girl in the care of that same foster home. tell us what you know about the details that occurred that day. >> thanks for having me, will. this is just a tragic situation all around but we have questions about how did we even get here and when i started hearing about the fact that the mother, biological mother, hazel was about to sue the foster care system, you know, i'm just saying that is going to open up a whole lot of other questions. as someone, my wife are in the process of pursuing adoption, we've been going through all the studies what are the best ways to go about adopting kids. hey, should try fostering kids, it is a very convoluted process but i have questions, like, how did both her children end up in the foster care system? because i have been doing more research, you find out, the mother hazel bryant had two
3:27 am
daughters both living with miss moore, i believe the foster mother. there were questions about that. then i find myself, whoa, you have the wherewithal to hire an attorney and a public, pr representative, so you can go about suing but you couldn't take care of your kids? you start hearing stories about how the rest of the family, aunts, uncles, cousins complain about the situation, none of them were willing to take in the two girls. this led to a tragic situation. it was a failure on all parts, so much levels over a period of time, and i find myself sitting there, are we going to put all the blame on just the foster care system or how about looking at the other people who failed her like her immediate family? will: no doubt. first of all, chris, god bless you for you and your wife pursuing adoption. we all know literally the act of angels. quickly i have very little time, you have a lot of knowledge about this entire system. the foster care system has been
3:28 am
under a lot of stress past year. my co-host, rachel duffy, knows a lot about parenting told me about that. tell us about the foster care system. what it is dealing with during this time? >> i'm not an expert on the foster care system and stuff. we're going through the process, went to several seminars to find out. it is a very onerous process to go through. a lot of background checks you have to go through. my understanding is miss moore, who is the foster care mother, she had multiple other children come through her home. in fact it is my understanding that the two girls who showed up, the two girls showed up to celebrate who were previously fostered by miss moore and so they were there to help celebrate. those two girls got into an argument with miss bryant, mahkia bryant over the ted did iness of the home. that is what has been reported. this story appears to have spiraled out of control. who was at fault? i think no one knows and i don't
3:29 am
think it will come out until much further on until we get into court because there is a lot of questions that are going to have to be answered. the problem is, miss bryant lost her life as a result of things spiraling out of control. the cop is not to blame. son of a career law enforcement officer. the copies not to blame. will: to your point, many, many institutuions and systems failed this young lady before that moment that day. by the way the police were called to that foster home multiple times as we noted earlier throughout the past year. we should say we spooked out to the franklin county childrens services for a response. we have yet to hear back. chris, thanks for telling us about the system, sharing your knowledge this morning. >> thank you. will: coming up the return of racing to talladega is driving area businesses into full gear. alabama senator tommy tuberville joins us next as we continue "fox & friends weekend" live from the talladega superspeedway

think if our public health officials would show signs of feeling liberated, if dr. fauci were out and about as he should be without a mask i think it would send a strong message t would help. we have two extremes on the masking issue and two extremes on precautions or restrictions. reality we need to settle around selective masking policy. come flu season, if you have symptoms in future years, maybe you should be wearing a mask during those symptoms. the idea of all or nothing right now i think is affecting hesitancy. it is really a problem. rachel: one last question, we don't have a lot of time. why do you think dr. fauci and joe biden, president biden are not acting like they should givent fact they're vaccinated and they're not high-risk anymore? >> look i think they're trying to sort of react to the other extreme which is the denialism over the virus. it is still second quarter lating in parts of the country. we have to get to the point we're taking precautions of

grace coming up here on "fox & friends." pete: there is a capacity limit. very few masks in the stands. people coming out to watch the race. rachel: it is outdoors. pete: huge venue. rachel: it is the perfect sport to come back first. it is outdoors. it is. it is all american. pete: absolutely. rachel: we have another story on the border it keeps getting worse and worse. one of the concerns is the cartels that are, we basically ceded control of our border to the most evil people in the hemisphere, the mexican cartels and so we have mayor douglas nichols. pete: before we get to that. this new video is jarring people this morning this is from the border patrol in california a 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old boy being lowered down over the wall. it ended up being three adults, two kids, lowered about i a rope over 30-foot wall, presumably by
4:03 am
cartels and mules on that side. mother holding her 2-year-old child. rachel: imagine if anything went wrong. pete: holy cow,. rachel: that is happening multiple times a day. as you know, children coming across the border they don't get sent back there incentive to bring the child. pete: that's right. will: so many times of the story of illegal immigration is humanitarian story. certainly there is that element. this is illegal activity. when there is illegal activity taking place there is a criminal organization largely behind it. that is certainly the case when it comes to illegal immigration. rachel you've seen it. i saw it first-hand this is a cartel coordinated, cartel controlled illegal activity. yuma, arizona, mayor doug nichols is talking about the level of criminal activity at our border. >> the cartels are working. they understand the border. they're trying to control exactly the different crossings, whether it is people or whether it is drugs at, 7,000 to $15,000
4:04 am
a person, it is a business to these traffickers. so when it is a business that brings billions of dollars a year to them you will see them try to exploit every angle, every weakness, every policy that is in place along the border at this time. we really, really need congress to jump in and do the immigration changes that have been decades in coming. the federal government needs to take it head on. we can't just address the humanitarian issues which we need to do. we need to make sure those who do need protection can get it, but we also need to cut the flow off. pete: talking about cutting the flow off. by the way, the wall pictures, that is the wall working. interdiction mechanism. not 100% effective all the time but it slows down the flow. the flow is real. people are be walking in. he mentioned the reasons this is happening. kamala harris as we know famously put in charge of our
4:05 am
humanitarian connection to these countries where migrants are coming from. that is not the border. that on your screen, not kamala harris's job, talk to the triangle countries to figure out why people are coming. 30 days ago she was picked to figure it out. she will have a zoom call with head of mexico. they will talk about migration. one of the things they will talk about it, in all seriousness, mexican president talked about, how do you stem the flow of migrants. part of it is planting trees in guatemala and el salvador so farmers there have more of an incentive to stay than to leave. so tree planting is the big idea right now this administration is leading with as a root cause to prevent people from coming. is that going to work? rachel: it is really interesting. not only the plan doesn't even make sense, we'll have you plant, america you will pay for all the tree planting.
4:06 am
pete: we're paying for it. rachel: pay expanded program beyond mexico into central america. plant all the trees. they will stay there by the way if you plant trees we'll provide you with a special pathway to u.s. citizenship. doesn't make any sense. either the tree planting will keep you there or give you a pathway to citizenship to the united states. the whole thing is bizarre. i'm so glad the mayor of yuma is out here talking about you know, what is happening at the border because it is border communities like his are being so impacted by the cartels, by the loss of jobs because of the border wall and because of the resources in their communities that are absolutely being strained with illegal immigration. will: to another story for you this morning. this one i believe is at the core of the american debate. might be the most important story we're having today, because it defines who we are. the american experiment is bid on individual rights, individual freedom, defining you according to your character, your principles, your soul. increasing to look at members of
4:07 am
group and how that group may define you a group of parents are pushing back on this anti-racism training going on in our schools. this is the mom i'm talking about. start looking at us through the lens of our skin color through group affiliation. some parents are starting to do as this infiltrates our school system. give you a quote from harvey goldman to the manhattan school, neither i nor my child have white privilege, nor do we need to apologize for it. to suggest i do is insulting. to suggest to my 9-year-old child does, it is child abuse, not education. parents are starting to push back, i want to be blunt about this, racist training in our schools. rachel: absolutely. here is another parent from a country school. she writes, i don't fit into any of those buckets, any of those race buckets. i think it is wrong to be teaching kids socially constructive race categories. it is destructive ideology, teaching children to be
4:08 am
pessimistic and full of grievance, rather than being optimistic, full of gratitude. goes against all the values i was raised with. many out there feel as i do, this is a movement with a lot of people. pete: well-said this is public school parent, education advocate telling the "new york post" also, i've been called a karen. they tried to pressure me not speaking up. it can be very stressful, physically, emotionally, mentally. it feels like a mob is descending on you, calling you a racist fighting for the kind of education you want for your children. it is really nasty. i've seen it ruin lives. will to your point the first parent you read, said i don't have white privilege. i can recognize people are treated differently in different times. teach it, talk about. but that doesn't mean my kid the sins of 100 years ago are on my child who is going to your school. that is racist when you treat him differently like it was racist before. will: there is a movement winning in this country to cure past race i am by instituting
4:09 am
present and future race improgress on half a century, back to viewing each other as individuals, we're moving away from that. i'm telling you this is not the core of who we are as americans. rachel: i totally agree. you bring up the word americans. when you vilify being an american, when you say that our history, that we're systematically racist, that america's history is racist, who wants, you have a bunch of kids, who wants to be an american? we have to unite around something that we all have in common. that is being an american. when we completely vilify that word, then we have, then we have tendency to resort to these categories. obviously people who have an agenda pushing it. pete: for sure, for parents the fight is multifaceted. people have kids in different places in different types of schools. in your school that is woke how can you put the administrators on the defensive, that is your
4:10 am
role. how do you change the school your kids are in? this is good to see in the "new york post," parents speaking out f we recapture the territory it will have to go a lot further big time. the left has completely captured the whole pipeline how it ends up in curriculum, the textbook. you can't reverse that one complaint to a principle. we have to create our own ecosystem. rachel: i saw this very early on, will and pete, when we grew up with the idea of the melting pot. i started to see that they were talking about the salad bowl instead of the melting pot. that was huge shift from the way we were raised to just be -- pete: i like soup a lot better more than salad. rachel: that is true. will: chris, who was with the discovery institute, he is the director of it, is talking about the whole push, called critical race theory. probably getting pretty familiar with that term, critical race theory for schools. he was on "watters' world," here is what he had to say.
4:11 am
>> turning education into activism. at the philadelphia elementary school how to simulate black power rallies. celebrating angela davis. celebrating, black communism. 87% of those students don't know how to read, write, basic proficiency by the time they reach middle school. the total complete failure of the educational system to get them towards academic success, they're shifting blame, injecting politics into the classroom. shifting the blame to white supremacy. shifting the blame to systemic racism, absolve themselves of failure and channel rage, frustration of students into of the american system. will: you know, rachel you said something a moment ago i want to follow up on. what this is about at its core being an american. human beings are at the very core tribal listtic. we join groups. we want to be part of something. american experiment, part. of this country which sees us as
4:12 am
an idea, if you deny that group, deny that idea, people revert to really basic groups and tribes that is what they're pushing back toward. rachel: this is rooted in cultural marxism. when you do, you can understand how to fight this. that is marxism. pete: experiment with america, totally unlike anything tried on the planet. rachel: it is exceptional. pete: turning to a few additional headlines as well this morning, officers shooting and killing a man who was wearing body armor avraming his car into a police cruiser. the man stopped suddenly on sunset boulevard before reversing into the cruiser. he got out with one much his hands tied behind his back and began counting down. officers fired when he began to move his hand. unclear if he had a weapon or any other device. the case is under investigation. churches are allowed to hold sunday worship today at 100% capacity in new mexico. i want to cheer but it is so sad. rachel: so sad you have to say

mask. pete: you don't have a history of those kinds of complications, anything like that, ultimately? what did you feel at the end that caused you to go to the track? could you even get oxygen? >> i mean i felt like it was very difficult to breathe. everything went blurry. then i couldn't really, i just fell. i think it was definitely oxygen deprivation that had a big play in that. pete: absolutely. coach, 800 is an impossible race. i couldn't run an 800 right now if i tried, let alone with cloth mask on your face not allowing you to breathe. it is insanity. >> it is really difficult to understand the concept having kids run with masks. at the schools we understand the mask is a critical strategy reducing covid, makes sense within the school buildings in relaxed atmospheres but when a kid is running at max velocity
4:29 am
they need it to get through the race, something like an 800 is near impossible to run at maggie's level on the track. we warned the osa, oregon school athletic association, that this might happen. knowing how maggie how tough she is, how driven she is, she will run beyond pain. this was beyond pain. she didn't have enough oxygen to make the last few meters. she went down, it was a scary scene. pete: have you seen anything like that, not only break the record as a junior but did it with a mask on? >> it is unbelievable, actually. as you think about it, you think about the respiratory rates of runners running her speed, her level, you and i talking here we breathe 15 breaths every minute. she is going 40 to 60 breaths every minute. not only can she not breathe effectively, can't get rid of
4:30 am
the carbon dioxide within that mask when she is breathing so fast. i never seen anybody that proved what she has done. proves a level of toughness she has to get through that. but at the same time should we put kids in that situation? we're lucky she didn't hurt herself horribly. we're very lucky. pete: we are lucky. whether it is a respiratory system or physically collapsing at the finish line. you mentioned the oregon school activities association. here is part what they said. we've been communicating with the governor's office and ohs for weeks seeking an adjustment to the mask mandate to allow students not wearing masks participating outdoors in contact sports. let's hope common sense prevails at some level and soon. i imagine, maggie, do you have meets coming up as well? >> yes we have several meets coming up. pete: i got to believe you don't want to try that again with a mask on in light of that what happened already. you have to keep reaching out
4:31 am
here. they have to. especially on track-and-field outdoors. wear it at the starting line. then after you win, maggie, but during the race is insane. it really is. maggie, coach, thank you so much. keep us posted. >> thanks. pete: appreciate it. what a wonderful young lady. back in business. will and i take a look at the big boon for area restaurants and stores as fans return to the superspeedway.

5:25 am
custody. >> reporter: a chicago family one step closer to justice this morning, following the arrest of a suspect in the killing of that beautiful little girl, 7-year-old jaslin adams. 18-year-old marion lewis facing 16 charges including first degree murder in connection to her death at a mcdonald's drive-through last weekend. police arrested him after he crashed his car while trying to escape. he tried to carjack a family's vehicle at which point officers shot and arrested him. they are looking for other suspects in her killing. >> you can run but you can't hide. we are going to bring you to justice for this crime. the adams family deserves nothing less. >> reporter: jaslin shot six times including once in the head. her father was hit in the chest and seriously wounded but has since been released from the hospital of.

police have not yet revealed a motive. a small memorial has been set up at the mcdonald's he featuring pink balloons and toys. lewis is also charged with three counts of attempted murder, aggravated vehicular hijacking and aggravated assault of a police officer among other counts. he's scheduled to appear in court in the coming hours. will, back to you. will: thank you, rachel. thank you, todd. former president bill clinton seen smiling with jeffrey epstein and ghislaine maxwell in the white house in never before seen images. they were picture together during a 1993 reception. this comes to light as a new accuser steps forward against epstein and ghislaine maxwell pleads not guilty to new sex trafficking charges. here to react, host of crime stories, nancy grace. ghislaine maxwell is facing new
5:27 am
charges, new accusations and the ages range from 14 to 18, meaning what age the accusations reportedly occurred. what can you tell us about what's going on with ghislaine maxwell. >> ghislaine maxwell is set to go to trial this summer but with the advent of two new felony counts including a new accuser who says she was just 14 years old at the time that she was sex trafficked by ghislaine maxwell, so jeffrey epstein could molest her under the guise of her being a masseuse. who has a 14-year-old girl masseuse, number one? what jury is going to believe that? so these two charges have been tacked onto the other charges. it's called a superseding indictment. a lot of people have conspiracy theories as to why the state is adding these two charges now, a few months before trial. you know what? my response, why not? you've got this accuser, the
5:28 am
state can make out the case. she's being tried for facility t tating some weird -- facilitating some weird, sinister upon. ponzi scheme.according to the v, ghislaine also molested them. she didn't just recruit them off the playground. she took part in molesting them too. but the reality is, these little girls are finally getting their day in court. my question is, why not add them? all these nefarious theories of why the state tacked on the charges, guess what, they're probably true. so they're going to trial. will: we started to see ghislaine maxwell in some of these court appearances, she looks a lot different. it seems to be -- i know you talked about this, you looked into this or talked about this, it's a familiar trial strategy. you've seen it happen before, nancy. it's got a purpose. >> can i ask you a question? why are all the headlines about

ghislaine maxwell has gray hair? do i care if ghislaine maxwell is getting gray hair? she can't go to her $400 hair salon to get her hair done behind bars? i care about this new little girl, a 14-year-old girl, sex trafficked. yes, ghislaine maxwell looks thinner. according to court reporters and legal eagles that were in court, yes, she looks thinner but she's healthy. to hear the defense, she's gray and frail. so what. remember the menendez brothers who dressed like college freshman and the defense attorney would brush their shoulder. scott peterson came in looking like a golf pro. oj simpson tried to pretend he had rheumatoid arthritis.
5:30 am
it's all an act to make the jury feel sorry for her, so the 14-year-old girl, one more thing, that's not all, she pled guilty -- not guilty to these charges but do you know her bond hearing is going up to the court of appeals? that's one level below the u.s. supreme court for pete's sake because the judge keeps turning down her bond application. they're taking it all the way. i would not be surprised if this woman gets out on bond and disappears. will: the image crafting starts the minute you walk into the courtroom. you don't want to look like an elitist social ite who potentially lived up to the accusations. you can hear nancy grace talk about this on crime stories available on fox nation. good to see you this morning. new video shows another terrifying scene at the border. two young children are lowered over a 30-foot wall. you've got to see this video. former acting dhs secretary ken

welcome. >> thank you, rachel. rachel: of course. they're going to have a retirement party for the superintendent. the original invitation said 10 people can come to that. meanwhile, promise canceled and graduation is limited so a family like you, you have five children, not everybody can go to the graduation. >> that's definitely the case. we parents felt like the district took a page out of the marie antoinette playbook and said let the seniors eat case, two guests total which means most kids can't include the immediate family in the graduation ceremony, one of the big events in their life. no prom. but we're also okay with going ahead and having a reception with food, busses transporting guests in so everyone in close quarters on those busses, to celebrate our retiring superintendent which we think it's great. we would want to celebrate our
5:48 am
graduating -- or our retiring superintendent but we also as parents don't understand the double standard, why the district has certain things that are okay for the adults in the district and then the kids' interest in the district are getting entirely overlooked for the seniors. rachel: you know, jennifer, i have a son who didn't get prom and didn't get graduation last year because of the pandemic. it's hard to believe that a year later we're facing these kinds of restrictions still. but i just think as a mom and we share that in common, i just feel like the pandemic has just revealed something about our schools, which is that across the board from ache demicks -- academics to the important marker moments for kids, that kids have been put last in this, that the needs of teachers and administration have taken precedence over our children and they've been the real victims this year. what do you say to that? >> i 100% agree, rachel, and i know this is kind of your former background if i understand it
5:49 am
correctly here in arizona. rachel: yes, it is. >> so as parents, our primary job obviously is to look out for our kids' well-being and we want to be a team. we want to be a team with our school district. we want to be a team with the people who we trust, who watch out for our kids' best interest. and exactly what you said, as we have gone especially through the last year and looked at a lot of the decision making that's come down, none of it has been with reference to what is best for the kids, for their growth, for their development, for their emotional, physical well-being. it has very much been an entirely different conversation than anything you would expect from an industry that's in charge of educating and supporting our children into adulthood. rachel: i know what it's like to have to bring this to public attention and so, you know, you're a brave mom and you're fighting for your kids and you're fighting for a lot of

of april. u.s. border security, how do people view, how do voters view our border security compared to 2018? look at those numbers. 46% of americans say our border security is worse than it was in june of 2018. anybody who is saying better, probably wants open borders. interesting to see, the american people certainly responsive to the reality of what is happening on the border right now. rachel: couple weeks ago a "qunnipiac poll" came out. which group is most dissatisfied what is happening at the border? hispanics. that makes sense. they're the largest population living along our u.s. border, hispanic-americans. if you think about it, it was sheriffs, the mayors of these border towns and border communities who were first raising the flag saying, we have a problem on our hands on, they have been trying to get joe biden to get down to the border along with his supposed border czar kamala harris. will: what i got to see this
6:04 am
past week the reason the people living along the border who are on the front line saying this is a crisis, this is a problem because it's a quality of life issue for them. directly impacting literally their backyards. that would lead to an insurge in polling numbers, 30 points, increase of 30 points people who believe we're worse off today. right there on the screen is some new video footage as well of a 6-year-old and a 2-year-old being lowered over the border wall in california. those are 30-foot walls. pete: look at that, holding on to the back of a non-related adult male. who knows who is doing the transferring. probably the cartels. rachel: that is exactly right. joe biden was elected the cartels basically changed their business model to go from drugs and weapons and a little bit of smuggling to now a lot more smuggling and children, sadly are the ticket in. they are like the new dope, they literally have been saying.
6:05 am
pete: we are living in visual area. videos released by the cpb what is happening in the reality on the border. what is the central problem kids. kids are the ticket. defacto policy separating kids from the parents. they are the golden ticket if you want to stay in this country. mayors, local officials have been bearing the brunt of this. the yuma mayor, douglas nichols talked about, you mentioned the cartels, what they're doing with this. take a listen. >> the cartels are working and they understand the border and they're trying to control exactly the different crossings, whether it is people, whether it is drugs. at 7,000 to $15,000 a person, it's a business to these traffickers. so when it's a business that brings billions of dollars a year to them, you're going to see them try to exploit every angle that, every weakness, every policy, that is in place along the border at this time. we really, really need congress to jump in and do the
6:06 am
immigration changes that have been decades in coming. the federal government needs to take it head on. we can't just address the humanitarian issues. which we need to do. we need to make sure those who do need protection can get it, but we also need to try to cut the flow off. will: rachel, pete, i like to do my best to understand what the other side, anyone who might disagree with us says on these issues on this and largely what you're having is complete ignoring of the issue, not talking about it. the other response this, is partisan, this happened under the previous administration. you're focusing on it with a democratic president. that defies what is happening on the ground, listening to those with first-hand knowledge. we see the numbers spike. we know the numbers are spiking. i know the sheriff, we see numbers spike tenfold. this is happening. the american people by the way recognize this. you're seeing polls what we saw,
6:07 am
people recognize it is getting worse. rachel: the sheriffs have been telling me, i was in arizona, spoke to border patrol, sheriffs, they said they have never seen anything like this in 40 year careers. this is absolute, not just a spike, it is, it is, they said it is not even a crisis. it is chaos. we interviewed ken cuccinelli, former acting dhs acting secretary and this is what he says about the biden administration why they're doing nothing to stop this crisis. >> we're seeing the cartels and the smugglers use the same tactics because this administration isn't changing anything. they aren't actually doing anything, planting trees doesn't count to stem the flow of illegal immigration. so we're going to keep seeing this, that is the story here. we're going to keep seeing this until this administration actually takes step to interdict the flows and to return people back to their homes. the reason they're not doing it in my view is because they want
6:08 am
it. they want this inflow. you and i see a crisis. they see voter registration line. pete: straight up about it. also mentioned planting of trees. kamala harris, 33 days of border czar, whatever she is doing not visiting the border, she is having a zoom call with the president of mexico. one of the proposals, if we plant trees in countries where migrants are coming from. ken cuccinelli who was agriculture secretary in the state of virginia, takes 40 trees for trees to bare fruit. this is inhumane. rachel: this is environmentalism, the trees? by the way we're solving the border crisis. pete: perfect non-solution. will: something dead serious, we talked about it earlier in the program, the fundamental ideal to be an american, judged as an
6:09 am
individual, get away from tribal differences put aside racism we have a movement afoot in the countries being taught in the schools that is the antithesis. focusing on anti-race imwhat we know is a reversion to racism. looking through our prism, skin color. there is pushback. parents in some of the schools, for example, in new york city pushing back underground. give you an an example. harvey goldman. he wrote first and foremost neither i nor my child have white privilege neither do we need to apologize for it. to do is insulting. suggesting to my nine-year-old child she does is child abuse. that is definitely not education. rachel: oh, my gosh, that is child abuse. this is another from a parent telling the "new york post," i don't fit into any of those race buckets. i think it is wrong to teach socially constructive race categories. it is destructive ideology,
6:10 am
teaching children to be pessimistic, full of grievance rather than optimistic full of gratitude. it goes against all the values i was raised with. many out there feel as i do, this movement has a lot of people. pete: not just elite private schools but public school parents and education advocate talk tock "the new york post." i've been called a karen. they tried to pressure me not speaking up. it can be very stressful, physically, emotionally, mentally. feels like a mob is descending on you calling you a racist for fighting for the kind of education you want for all children. it is really nasty and i've seen it ruin lives. this curriculum is divisive. it is racist as you pointed out, will. it makes kids feel bad for immutable characteristic they can't change. parents have to do even more than talk to the "new york post." they have to be fighting back. good to see a start here. rachel: it is good to see the start. it is also causing kids to hate
6:11 am
each other, be suspicious of each other. why do we want that in school? it is just so outrageous. i spoke earlier to the what he said, vivek ramswamc. >> there is a new form of racism spreading like wildfire. it is anti-white racism on its face. tells white kids they have inherent privilege and need to confess their sin. that antiwhite racism is triggering a new form of anti-black racism which is spreading across the country like wildfire. we have a vicious cycle where kids are taught not to see the content of their character but on the color of their kin skin setting back 60 years of progress for the civil rights revolution. it is sick and needs to end.
6:12 am
pete: carol swain talk as lot about that. rachel: she is a amazing. pete: grew up in poverty, cast canceled by academia for being conservative. she studied the white supremacy movements are horrible. what do you have happen to emphasize race, people back into their corners for every direction. rachel: we have so much interracial marriage. pete: we were so close. too close. will: not anti-white racism, there is racism against african-americans as well. you were born a victim, nothing you can do about it, one of the most disabling things. this is racism against everyone. rachel: there is power in it. the victim has the power. this new paradigm that we've created. will: turning now to a few additional headlines for you, starting with this, a former medical examiner is facing investigation after testifying in shoaf derek chauvin trial. he david fowler served as
6:13 am
maryland examiner in 2002 to 2019. he testified that george floyd died of cardiac arrest. another medical examiner concerned problem. ing maryland's attorney general review of people who died in police custody when fowler was the state's chief medical examiner. california may lose a congressional seat for the first time in history. it comes as the census is expected to report a decline in the state's population when its data comes out. california's population growth dropped .06%, the lowest since at least 1900. if that is the case the golden state would drop from 53 to 52. meanwhile, texas, florida, arizona could gain house seats because their population are growing. now this, jeff burton gets his first xfinity series win in talladega yesterday. >> there is no sunshine. we have lost the entire track.
