3:04 pm
over the presidency back on january 20th. this was the first call, though, with palestinian president mahmoud abbas since joe biden became the 46th president. i want to go through some readouts of those calls from the white house first let's go with palestinian president abbas according to the white house, the president expressed his support for steps to enable palestinian people to enjoy dignity security freedom, and economic opportunity that they deserve in that regard. he highlighted recent u.s. decision to assistance to palestinian people including economic and humanitarian assistance to benefit palestinian in west bank and gaza as far as the conversation with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu updated him on high level u.s. engagement with regional part noarns this issue and discuss ongoing diplomatic effort and president noted this period of conflict civilians including children. he raised concerns about safety and security of journalist and
3:05 pm
reenforced need to ensure their protection. white house press secretary jen psaki out with a tweet early this morning we have comiewngted it directly to the israeli it is that ensuring the safety and security of journal ition and independent media is a a paramount responsibility the reason jon you're hearing press secretary and the president specifically talking about journalist that's because that building we've been showing images all day that house the associate the press al jay zero was leveled by explosion thankfully it was evacuated before the israeli struck but it was a close call. prime minister benjamin netanyahu office says prime minister updated biden on what israel has done so far and what country plans to do in the future according to netanyahu office he also said israel is trying to avoid hurting uninvolved people. the president has reiterated multiple times since coming to office he wants to seek a two-state solution jon something
3:06 pm
presidents for decades have wanted to achieve we'll see if president biden will did it that is ultimate goal of this administration you can bet president biden plans to follow this update from wilmington for the rest of the weekend. jon. jon: david spunt at the white house david, thank you. >> thank you. jon: bring in rebecca grant a national security and military analyst president of iris independent research dr. grant we've been talking a lot about the israelis and palestinians but we haven't mentioned iran in all of this and iran is a very large factor in what's going on right now is it not? >> iran is a huge factor. i see iran all over this from the call from the commander of talking to hamas, of course, it is iran who was supplied a lot of the missiles and missile technology for these ongoing strikes that we're seeing last night 200 missiles being tonight and iran trying to support hamas
3:07 pm
and trying to move the needle and see whether team biden is going put down strong work for middle east or not. mainly pressure on israel. jon: what kind of response would you like to see from the biden administration? i mean, they have implored both siding to step back and deescalate the violence. >> they have, and make no mistake team bides season trying to work this very hard there's been calls but we need to see something a lot stronger here that really goes to the root causes. i would like to see the biden team step back from talking about reentering that nuclear deal with iran. it's too bad that biden already released money to gaza and palestinian through u.n. to kuwait to have that over their head and we need a stronger response and a demanding for a cease-fire. >> but the biden administration seems to see it other way they're saying to palestinians
3:08 pm
look we gave you all of that money -- which the trump administration had withheld, now we expect your cooperation does it not work that way? >> it doesn't work that way. hamas and iran are trying to see if they can up their game in this region. i think hamas is doing these strikes in part to see how israel's iron dome really works. to pass some of that information on to iran, and this is really turning into a deepening crisis for biden. he also has flipped within the democratic party of those who are more assertive about palestinian rightings and those who were just under israel. really a deepening crisis i think for biden at this point. jon: quickly i want to play some of what benjamin netanyahu told his people about the ongoing, in fact, listen. >> you know and i know no country would tolerate this. israel will not tolerate this. and i want to thank president biden for his clear and
3:09 pm
unequivocal support. you cannot equate a democracy that values life with a terror organization that glorifies death. jon: he's thank the president there for his support, and pointing out the fact that -- you know, the indiscriminate launching of rockets, you know, is terrorizing his people. >> has an ironclad right to defense don't forget these are indiscriminate rockets several hundred a night and there may be as many as 10,000 more rockets in the gaza strip that hamas can launch a buy them they make them themselves they have a pretty deep arsenal so we need to see pressure for a cease-fire to end this tragedy. >> what about criticism at israels for hitting building that housed not only the ap but also al jazeera.
3:10 pm
>> we have seen that before back during the 2014 war, and 24 and others reported that hamas had put a rocket launcher near a building with international jowrnlgists. no question in any mind hamas set this up as apartment of their propaganda ploy tragic good thing that the israeli defense forces did notify the building occupants. we want press safe but hey this is hamas who set it up for prop propaganda. jon: national security and military analyst rebecca grant, thank you. >> thank you. jon: colonial pipeline says system is back up and running one week after a cyberattack caused it to shut down but gas stations in many states are still without fuel as drivers eagerly await deliveries. we have fox team coverage with laura ingle stanging by on long island in new york on high per gas prices but we begin with jonathon serrie live.
3:11 pm
jonathon. >> we've been watching a lot of activity at this tank crop pulling up and offloading supply from this facility right next to the colonial pipeline. they then drive this supply to area gas stations. that process takes time. so does the flow of fuel on the pipeline itself which can be as slow as five miles an hour on some sections and then, there's the wild card of whether panic buying will continue. >> and we want to remind the public that it will take a few days to fully return to normal. urge people in affected regions to only buy the gas they need so that we can help speed up the process. reporter: florida picialgs are investigating the cause of an suv fire that started shortly after driver filled four fuel containers and then put them
3:12 pm
back in his hummer one injured but refused treatment. in georgia, governor brian kemp extended state of emergency through next saturday georgia temporarily suspended its gas tax and raise the the weight limit on trucks transporting fuel more than 40% of gas stations in georgia, virginia, and south carolina are out of fuel according to the gas buddy. the figure has gone up to 68% in north carolina. but it is even higher in the nation's capitol. 81% of gas stations in washington, d.c. are without fuel and indication of the lingering effect of this pipeline shutdown caused by a ransomware attack. jon back to you. jon: unbelievable jonathon live in georgia, jonathon thanks. it is not just the south if you live in the northeast, you could be paying more at the pump as well. some fear that fallout could last longer than expected. laura ingle has more from
3:13 pm
rockville centre, new york. laura. >> hi jon, people are talking about the price of gas here certainly there's not a lot of problems here in new york right now. but as jonathon just reported, there is a lot of concern moving forward as people are making plans and we've all seen these lines, these long lines of people trying to get gas in some of the hardest hit states after the colonial pipeline cyberattack rush panic hoard gasoline having ripple effect on top of the up and down prices of gas that has left many uneasy and some drivers have short vital commuting plans, say they're needing to adjust routs and timing with all of the uncertainty in the air states are still working on getting fuel from the tankers to the grounds and into customers cars. >> it is going to take a while for things to go back to normal so we're still expecting this to be -- like this for the next two weeks at least.
3:14 pm
maybe three -- >> well, president biden has said this is not going to be like flicking on a light switch. though, president biden predicts a region by region return to normalcy this weekend and into next week. and past three months national price of gas has gone from $2.52 to $3.40 that's over a 20% increase in just 90 days and here in new york republican lawmakers are trying to convince governor cuomo to suspend gas tax while the democratic state lawmakers here are prptionz agrobust carbon tax that could significantly raise gas prices something that cuomo said is not the right thing to do for now. and so for now people are working on just topping off their tank as they make plans for may includes memorial day holiday. jon. jon: laura ingle from long island, new york, laura, thanks. well the fbi says the ransomware gang known as dark side was group responsible for cyberattack that forced the
3:15 pm
shutdown of the colonial pipeline. the question is, was the russian government involved as well? rich edson has that story from the state department. >> we do have strong reason to believe that the criminals who did the attack are living in russia. >> president biden says fbi believes russian president vladimir putin and his government was not involved in cyberattack that distabled colonial pipeline so former secretary of state says administration should still hold the kremlin accountable. >> they need to do more than talk to the russians. they need to impose real cost and russians need to fix that problem if it emanated from there we know they can do so and fact they have not certainly implicates what took place there. analysts say groups like those that shut down colonial pipeline often operate with permission or help from foreign governments like russian and point to russian government cyberinfiltration into multiple
3:16 pm
federal agencies and systems and long standing campaigns to provoke the west. >> it is descrurk and undermining democratic societies. particularly in this case, the united states they also benefit from the intelligence value that impact on critical u.s. infrastructure would give them if the government wanted to do that if we were involved in conflict operations. >> the president says lust hamper these organizations ability to operate. while these cyberattacks accelerate, the biden administration like its predecessor left to figure out how it can get companies to bolster their own cyberdefense and how the u.s. government can prevent these attacks. >> i would just note that there's a real sense and no deterrent. president biden is expected to meet with president putin next month in europe. biden says he plans on discussing are colonial pipeline attack with the russian president. part of a growing list of octave

border patrol agents overwhelmed by those crossing southern border local law enforcement trying to step in to help but are they enough to handle ongoing surge? alex hogan is live on the border in del rio, texas, alex. >> hi jon agents here in dell rio stopped 450 people today but an increase presence of mexican marines just on the other side of the water has decreased crossings specifically right here which is a very common thought that we've seen not only just this week but in general. however, today it is not deterred everyone from crossing including one man with quite the journey. >> one lone traveler arying on u.s. soil from cuba after one year on the road carrying nothing more than his clothes a backpack mom name tattooed on

3:32 pm
there has been a 400% increase in the number of apprehensions compared to last year. most of the people are arriving from the northern triangle, of course, honduras el salvador and guatemala, however, specifically right here there's a sharp increase of those arriving from venezuela and cuba. jon. jon: alex hogan live on the border alex, thank you for more on this bring in new york republican congressman nicole member of the house transportation and infrastructure committee, as well as the house foreign affairs committee. staggering numbers there as reported by alex hogan a 400% increase in apprehensions and that doesn't tell us how many people escaped apprehension congresswoman. >> that's absolutely correct, obviously, that was very emotional for me as my mom is a cuban refugee herself but what we have to understand is that when my mother came here there were protocols in place that
3:33 pm
were followed right now there's no protocol there's no process it seems it is an open border and gotten completely out of control and i visited there -- about a month ago. and saw first hand that our cvp agents are being overrun by the cartel and smugglers that are bringing these individuals and making about half a billion dollars a month doing it. so it is a very dangerous situation. it's not just a humanitarian crisis but a national security crisis and i've urged president biden personally after the "state of the union" to address this issue to return back to the protocols that were put in place by president trump. he has stepped flow of the illegal migration yes we are working together to try to modernize and streamline our immigration system. but we can't do any of that if we do not stop the legal flow that is occurring right now. >> what is it at the biden administration that has them
3:34 pm
not -- continuing i guess to look the other way as it migrant surge goes on? >> no it is that they have advocated their responsibility to secure our nation's borders. because we know and they know at this point that the cartels are running the show and is a complete criminal enterprise that is operating this way. and as they're diverting tension of the cvp, there's actually a bunch of other nefarious activity at the open part drug trafficking, sex trafficking and so this is something that has to be addressed it can't continue to ignore this. this is a very dangerous situation for everyone involved. those migrants who are being transported, the american citizens who live in our community and the cost that it is coming to not just to the american citizens. his answer has been so far to give more money to corrupt governments in honduras and guatemala and that is something
3:35 pm
that should be concerning. but just today they announced they want to give another $2 billion to house these my migrants remember we have american cities across our country that are -- that are unfortunately suffering greatly with homeless epidemics we have american citizens struggling seniors that are continuing to try to make ends meet, and the amount of wasteful spending that is coming from this administration all they have to do is rollback the executive order he put in place in january 20th go back to the migrant protocol that were put in place by president trump and return cooperation with the three nations to our south, that we're cooperating under trump administration to stem the flow. jon: another executive order that president made soon after taking office was to stop oil and gas leasing on federal lands. we saw with the colonial oil pipeline shutdown this week that this nation is on the razors edge when it comes to fuel supplies. do you think that this crisis
3:36 pm
will create any reason for change in that approach of the administration? >> yeah. the cancelation of the pipeline as well as the cyberattack it was -- certainly l the reason why we're seeing these skyrocketing price at the gas station it is one of many problems that we're seeing as a result of the policies put in place for this administration. the idea that they're paying individuals more to stay home than to return to work -- discouraging people to be productive citizens is having a major issue on our supply chain. we're seeing tremendous increase in cost everything from lumber to agricultural to gasoline. and if you look at new york they want to double gas tax increasing to a dollar per gallon so really, really dangerous policies that we're seeing the reckless borrowing and spending we're seeing from biden administration is also leading to inflation which is contradicting factor as well so all of this --
3:37 pm
all of these executive orders that he's put in place and is first 100 days -- have led already we're seeing results of that. and i'm hoping that they're going to pay attention to this and try to reverse some of these things you know just because you don't like president trump doesn't mean you should be reversing policies that were actually working that we're leading to low unemployment ppg that were actually leading to cost of goods and gas going down. so i think it is very reckless. i don't understand it. but i certainly urge the white house administration to attack a second look at some of these policyings and revisit the need to have domestic production and invest in cybersecurity and other infrastructure projects that's where the money should be going that's what we should be talking about when we talk about infrastructure investment not all sorts of things that has nothing to do with transportation or infrastructure. >> we noted that you're on transportation and infrastructure committee in the house. a number of republican senators met with president biden this week. they didn't announce any agreement apparently they
3:38 pm
presented their sort of wish list. their ideas for what the president could do in terms of infrastructure and what republicans in congress will go along with. where do you see the bill going that the president -- the proposal that the president has put forward that two trillion dollar infrastructure bill does it have a chance of passing the u.s. congress? >> well, certainly not with bipartisan support and i don't believe it has a chance of passing even with just democratic support at this point unless they look to change rules as they did with the pandemic relief package. look, i think that transportation infrastructure is the one area where we could pass overwhelmingly bipartisan support package. but the president has to be serious about working with us and also standing up to the radical left who have tried to hijack this proposal and turn it into a radical, you know, green new deal that aoc and socialist movement is pushing.
3:39 pm
so if he's really serious about coming together we can certainly pass something. it would probably have to be focused on true infrastructure roads, bridges, tugs, airports, ports making sure that we solidify our infrastructure like the pipelines so we make sure that what we saw happen last week does not ham again and broadband i know that many of the members are interested in as well that is what we believe should be the focus right now. because we need to number one, keep cost the spending of this bill down. and number two, we just need to make sure that we're actually doing what we're supposed to be doing with the taxpayers expect for us to upgrade modernize our existing infrastructure. jon: new york congresswoman nicole, congresswoman, thanks. >> thank you. jon: the top county prosecutors are taking a stand against california's new rules that could make tens of thousands of prison inmates eligible for early release including violence

3:45 pm
state's new inmate sentencing guidelines. they say that new regulations are insensitive and unfair to crime victims and their loved ones. >> some of them are just devastated their emotions are raw to learn that the person that healed their family member can now get out and way more easier time a fraction of their sentence it can be devastating to them and if i guess my question is why didn't she take public input before you did all of this? >> sacramento d.a. ann marie schubert says rule lead to particular crime under california's voter approved proposition had 57, the state has wide authority to make sweeping changes to its prison sentencing structure. so on april 30th, with very little public notice, it was announced that new emergency regulations will be in place which can award additional good credits to 76,000 inmates including nearly 20,000 serving life sentences credits, used to
3:46 pm
potentially shorten their sentences. schubert says it is wrong for the state to approve new guidelines as emergency regulations. chief says there was no emergency to warrant this. and that by claiming this as an emergency, the state was able to bypass public comment on the controversial changes. >> we want public input before they institute these drastic changes. that's what we're asking for. there was no emergency. they imposed them on friday at 3:00 without any real notice. and now we just want an opportunity to be heard on behalf of public safety and crime victims. >> the department of corrections released a statement saying in part proposition had 57, which voters overwhelmingly approved in 2016 gave them the authority to submit regulations to provide additional opportunities for incarcerated people to receive good conduct credits as allowed by statute. emergency regulations are a result of that voter mandate.

3:48 pm
