10:01 am
ever seen us arrive at the wall here many del rio. this is what's left of the group, probably a couple hundred left to be picked up aft the buses and vans have picked up parts of this group. it started as more than 350 in total. take a look at this video exclusive to fox news from the mexican side of the rio grande as these migrants started crossing over early this morning. this perspective is from the river bank on the mexican city directly across from del rio. this is where the migrants gather in the morning and walk right across the rio grande, typically when the river's running at its lowest. many of them fly into the city of monterey, then they take a bus up here and, as you can see, they walk across the river and end up right here. a take a look at this video from a drone, again, border patrol saying this was a group of well over 350. they arrive here at the border gate, the border fence, whatever you want to call it.
10:02 am
it's not the trump border wall, that's been patchy in this area, the construction was never finished, but they all group up here. these folks are coming in from all over the world. we talked to people from haiti, from ghana, from colombia, from brazil, from africa, from senegal. it's all over the place, no longer just those northern triangle countries that kamala harris said we need to focus on the root causes. and on the other side of the river bank, they're leaving passports all over the place. one couple from ghana, the woman was a baker, the man an electrician. they left in january, flew into brazil, they crossed into bolivia, mexico, then up here. they're heading for hartford, connecticut, where they have friends. back out here live, all of them have different plans, they're coming from different places, and the surge is not slowing down at all. it's the middle of summer out here, brutally hot. it hasn't slowed down right now. they're coming in all over the
10:03 am
place. we've seen groups like this every single day this week and to wrap it up here, also concerning that i.c.e. is reporting that 30% of their detainees are refusing the covid-19 vaccine while they are in federal custody, this as the number of migrants testing positive for covid-19 is surging down in the rio grande valley, surging by more than 900%. send it back to you. mike: bill melugin all over it from the southern border, many thanks. for more we are joined by texas attorney general ken paxton. welcome, general. >> good afternoon. mike: the great state of texas has begun arresting illegal migrants and charged them with trespassing. typically the responsibility of the federal government, how is your new approach going? >> so it's, you know, slow at first. we're beginning this process. we've been forced into this. governor abbott just started this process, and he's been forced into it because the federal government as you see, as your reporter just showed, they are not doing the job, and
10:04 am
they have no interest in doing the job. they continue to invite people to cross the border to the detriment of this country and even maybe to the detriment of some of these immigrants. mike: your state has also issued a disaster declaration similar to what happens after a hurricane. how is that approach going? >> well, and i understand exactly why the governor does it, it gives more power to local authorities, to law enforcement to do things, and i think that's how the process works for the state in getting more resources to that area. the governor has more access to resources and financial resources by declaring the disaster and, clearly, this is a disaster for our state. mike: the aclu is arguing it would be illegal to arrest people based on their immigration status. is this going to be a fight decided in court? >> i would not be surprised. i mean, the aclu doesn't have to live along the border and deal with the crime, the drugs, the sex trafficking. so we're dealing with this best way we possibly can given the
10:05 am
fact that the federal government is ignoring -- not just ignoring the problem, creating it. mike: obviously, the texas lawmakers who left the capital and came to washington to draw attention to the issue of voting rights bills in texas didn't want to be part of the voting there. the latest is a couple have gone back home to texas. what's the latest, in your view? >> so i don't think we still have a quorum. we're certainly hoping for a quorumming at some point because what they're doing is preventing other legislators from voting which is what they claim they care about. so at some point they'll have to come back. they live here. they don't want to live here, they're going to have to come back. eventually we will have an opportunity to have the democratic process work and have all legislators represented and voting. mike: it's interesting, i covered the texas legislature early on in my career, and i know those folks all have other jobs. they just are lawmakers temporarily. you would think that they would need to get home back to their a
10:06 am
day jobs, no? >> no. it's -- legislators make $600 a month. i was in the texas house and senate for 12 years, and so this happened to us back in 2003 where the democrats took off because they didn't want to do redistricting, and it's a financial hardship on legislators who have jobs like i did, who have families, who can't go on vacation with their families during the summer but particularly financial crisis because they can't necessarily afford going on month after month without going back to their jobs. mike: it sounds like some of these democrats are planning to camp out here in washington until august 7th, the end of the special session that was called by the governor. are they only delaying the inevitable? is the governor just going to call another special session this fall? >> that would be my guess. i wouldn't be surprised if he calls it right away. given the fact we need to get this done, some of these issues are extremely important including selection integrity and some of the -- election integrity and some of the other issues. it would not surprise me to see it the very next day or soon
10:07 am
thereafter. yes, i don't understand the end game here given that the governor can call them back. mike: are you expecting legal fights once those bills are passed basically challenging those new laws in court? >> is -- absolutely. they do every time we pass an election integrity bill. we fought redistricting for eight years, we won that. it typically is a wrong process, but there's nothing wrong with the legislature passing laws in texas, and they can't be undone by a few legislators who didn't like the way it turned out. mike: thanks so much for your time, sir. >> have a great day. mike: from gasoline to the grocery store, many of us are feeling the pinch of rising prices caused by inflation. our alex hogan has more. hi, alex. >> reporter: hi, mike. an alarming trend especially for those already pinching pennies. it means that you'll likely to have to pay even more for system of those favorites like lay's

10:10 am
but we can get it done. and the infrastructure bill, as your guy pointed out, is not the bernie bill, not the kind of reckless spending and taxation that democrats want to do. >> we're down to the last couple of items, and i think you're going to see a bill monday afternoon. >> reporter: the president trying to chip in as well drumming up support saying we can deliver for the american people on an infrastructure deal that creates good paying, union jobs, jobs that a give families breathing room. let's get it done. the president on twitter last night. last week senate reflips blocked effort to move -- republicans blocked effort to move debate on the bill, many arguing it was not a good idea to move forward at that point. among those that are still not thrilled with the way the process has worked out, south carolina republican senator tim scott. >> it's amazing when we have a vote in the senate on a procedural vote to move to a bill that you haven't seen. the days of actuallying having the pass it to know what's in it has to be over. that is not in america's best

interest, to literally have blank pages on a multitrillion dollar spending plan that doesn't seem to be negotiated on either side. >> reporter: while the senate looks like it is going to be moving forward this week, mike, there are still a lot of questions about what the house is going to do. we heard from house speaker nancy pelosi who insists they will not take up the infrastructure bill until the senate deals with that so-called human infrastructure, that much larger $3.5 trillion spending package that republicans are standing firmly against. mike, timing here very important, and it's still unclear when this could all reach the president's desk. white house officials told me in the past they thought it would be in the fall, but as we've seen in the past, those deadlines can shift quite a bit as this debate rolls on. mike: especially when lawmakers start smelling recess. mark meredith live in will ming

10:17 am
now. thursday night patrons were just enjoying dinner about a mile from the white house when shots were fired outside of a popular restaurant. many innocent people were caught in the middle of the gunfire. d.c. police chief robert contee says he needs more boots on the ground and the court system needs to step it up and, work in favor of law enforcement. chicago is another large city with a serious crime problem. the courts there are backed up by at least 35,000 felony cases. right now the state's attorney for cook county handles both cases in the county and the city of chicago. mike, i was in chicago thursday and friday, i sat down with kim fox, the top prosecutor known as the state's attorney there for the five, plus-million people -- five-plus-million people in cook county. there's currently a proposal by local leaders to move some of the nonviolent crimes from her office to a city court. >> the fact of the matter is we

have an unrelenting gun problem in chicago, and i cannot look to the people that i serve and tell them that we're spending more of our resources going after petty offenses that can still be dealt with than we are going after gun violence. and that's what my priority is. >> reporter: lawmakers from both sides of the aisle back here in washington, d.c. continue to work work on police reform. while it may be a little bit stalled right now, one of the lead negotiators -- senate tim scott of south carolina -- says the plan is still in the works. >> when you demonize police officers, when you defund the police and you start talking about this war on police and prosecution and not on crime, you're going to have a reduction of forces. and if you tell officers that their personal liability is on the line, it is a bad decision. >> reporter: negotiations are still underway, senator scott and his democrat counterparts hope to have something done before the august recess. mike?

mike: david spunt, thanks very much. joining us now to discuss crime across the country, daily caller editorial director and host of wmal's mornings on the mall vince coglianese and fox news contributor jessica tarlov. excuse me, welcome to both of you on this sunday. >> thank you. mike: it strikes me that washington, d.c. always has had a crime problem. jessica, is the difference this time the that it's happening in trendy neighborhoods? >> it certainly makes a difference that the people who are, first of all, on television talking about these things, reporters like jim acosta from cnn was actually on the restaurant when this happened are going to be amplify being it. and listening to the d.c. police chief who i thought did a magnificent job that there's a problem on the -- breaking down that there's a problem on the streets and in the courts. this is happening everywhere. eric adams in new york city just won the mayoral primary because he was talking about crime, and
10:20 am
people care about that in black and brown communities and also in white communities. it's a citying wide problem here. chicago, st. louis, we're going to talk about that, and i think the loudest voices are onboard talking about it including president biden and vice president kamala harris who invited police chiefs to the white house to talk about how we can better address these issues. mike: vince, the police chief here in d.c. is candid about a shortage of officers. is that the result of high profile people publicly criticizing law enforcement? >> well, demonizing police and right here in washington, d.c. it was pretty famously done when you had mayor muriel bowser write black lives matter on the street leading up to the white house, and when people further printed defund the police, she left it for months and didn't want to mess with it. i think the message they've through their so-called police reform bills that they've
10:21 am
succumbed to a political moment where they have demoralized officers. and the end result is we've seen hundreds of d.c. police leave the force over the last year, and that's coinsided with a dramatic -- coincided with a dramatic uptick in crime. needlessly demonized the people they're now turning to looking for men to bring safety to the streets. mike: what can they do to address this problem in so many great american cities, jessica? >> i think they need to help amplify the voices that matter, the ones that are on the streets with these people. the police chiefs who are there, the white house, the mayors who are now top to bottom concerned about this issue, are them out there talking about it and also putting forward, hopefully, this bipartisan police reform bill that we can all get behind. senator tim scott has been waiting a long time to be able to do something like this. making progress there is important. but to to what vince just said about how muriel bowser, sorry,
10:22 am
the mayor of d.c., black lives matter doesn't mean that blue lives don't matter, and that's not what people in america think today. the vast majority of police officers understand that black lives matter. it's about treating every single person in this country with dig dignity, respect and equality. doesn't take anything away from police officer. i don't want to see them demonized, but i don't think that's fair to -- >> the organization is an unserious organization that has no regard, ultimately, for black lives, and here's why i say that. the numbers support it. among unarmed black men who were killed last year at the hands of police, 17. the number of black people killed in homicides, 8600. black lives matter never tock those deaths seriously -- took those deaths seriously, and democrats politicians signed on to that, demonized these cops and chased them off the force. the people committing the crimes don't believe there are consequences the their a actions. that is a terrible state is for us to be in.
10:23 am
mike: all right, jessica, you made reference to senator tim scott and police reform. let's play this clip. >> that's one of the reasons why we've never been negotiating on qualified immunity for the individual officer. it's just bad policy, i won't support it. things like the chokehold and 1033 which is the militarization of police, those are things we can negotiate on. no-knock warrants, we can make them better and more transparent. we're making progress on those issues. mike: so, jessica, the senator says conversations are ongoing today, tomorrow and beyond. he sounds pretty hopeful. your thoughts on police reform on capitol hill. >> i'm hopeful too. can you imagine if we got infrastructure week and police reform week in one week before folks headed off for the august recess? i would encourage them, obviously, to work through their vacation time on such a pressing issue that a matters, obviously, to their constituents but also bigtime in terms of midterm elections now that crime and gun violence are topping the charts for independent voters which
10:24 am
neither party can win an election without the support of. mike: vince, your thoughts on police reform, do they get it done? >> i think it is entirely possible, but i think it's a lower priority than prosecutor and judicial reform. bad guys need to know there are consequences. the cops were there when naya courtney, 6 years old, was killed two weeks ago, the cops were there quickly, but we have a system that does not support them. mike: many thanks, have a great sunday. >> thanks, mike. mike: active wildfires burning in california, a closer look when we come back. ♪♪

10:32 am
covid cases. for example, mississippi, alabama, arkansas we're seeing a spike. so it's important to protect yourself especially if you have any harvest medical conditions, if you are suffering from diabetes, heart disease, if you are undergoing cream turn, you're -- cream therapy, you're more -- chemotherapy, you're more vulnerable. mike: covid also have been having an inpact at the olympics, two world class golfers, bryson dechambeau and jon rahm was to represent spain, rahm had to drop out of a tournament he was winning the first weekend in june when he tested positive, then we're told he got vaccinated and tested positive again? what do you make of it? >> yeah, it's so disheartening to see our athletes or anyone, for that matter, test positive. and this is because of the delta variant. it's a lot more vir you leapt, it's a lot more contagious, and it has made our vaccines slightly weaker. now, our vaccines still work,
10:33 am
they're good enough to keep you off of a ventilator and to keep you from passing away, but they're not 100%. and because it's so contagious and more virulent, you carry a thousand times the viral load of previous strains, and that's why we're seeing these further breakthrough infections. that's why it's still so important if you haven't yet gotten your vaccine, it's not too late. go out and get it, protect yourself, wear your mask if you're not vaccinated because we are seeing it spread not just among the unvaccinated, but also among the vaccinated even though a majority of those who are hospitalized and who have passed away from covid are those who are unvaccinated right now. mike: do you to worry the asthmassing talk and the talk of breakthrough infections may convince those who have been reluctant to get vaccinated to do nothing in. >> i hope not. americans are smart, and they can understand that the primary goal of the vaccine, again, is to keep you from being hospitalized and to prevent you from losing your life.
10:34 am
it can still really be very beneficial. again, most of my patients who tested positive -- which is just a small number -- had mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. so the fact you can still offer a lot of protection, and it's still important that we go out and get that. if you have questions or concerns about the vaccine, speak to your health care provider. we have data that shows that it's safe, it's effect i have, and it can prevent a lot of long-term complications as well. mike: then there's the question of how long the vaccine will last in us, whether we'll need booster shots. i've heard some folks a say perhaps an annual booster, perhaps a once a decade booster. have you seen any good research on the need for boosters at some point? >> yeah. so whenever the level of antibodies decrease, that would be an indicator that a booster might be beneficial. and boosters, we to this all the time with all kinds of vaccines like hepatitis, mumps, measles,
10:35 am
rubella. if your level of antibodies decrease, it's not a bad idea to have a booster. pfizer is currently working on a booster, and right now we see boosters being given to weakened immune systems or seniors in israel. if you have had an organ transplant, if you are undergoing chemotherapy, if you have diabetes or heart disease or a senior, you're probably going to be first in line to receive a booster, and that will offer you more protection against the variant. hopefully, moderna, pfizer, for example, will be able to modify and tweak the vaccine to target these more virulent strains like the delta and lambda strain that is coming out. mike: there, you're great on tv, but we all realize you have a day job. i'm wondering what the surge in cases, what these headlines are doing to you and others on the front lines who are dealing with covid again. >> thank you, mike. i have to be honest, it's exhausting, you know? i saw 7 a 5 patients yesterday -- 75 patients. the day before, 65.
10:36 am
so we're working very hard or to try to take care of our patients as best as we can in the community. we ask that patients do their job. be responsible, protect yourself. if for any reason you cannot be vaccinated, if you're allergic to any of the ingredients, then wear your mask becauses this is something we can combat and defeat together. we did it before, but then this delta variant came around. the fact that we have less than 50% of americans vaccinated and maybe about a third that have natural immunity, it's still not enough. we need to educate on the importance of getting the vaccine to protect your loved ones and your community. mike: great advice there, thank you so much. for sites near you, head to you can also find that link are on our web site, the debate over critical race theory heating up in the wake of a report with a

learn the social skills necessary to become a productive american citizen, that that's all white supremacy. and i agree with senator, with the former secretary of education, this is not a mistake. the people who biden put at the top of the department of education were both pioneers of critical race theory in education in their respective roles. miguel cardona pioneered the first effort in america statewide critical race theory ethnic studies high school course, cindy martin put all of her teachers through a training inspired by abolitionist teaching network's founder patina love which accused them of spirit murdering black and brown students. how were they doing that? well, by doing all the things schools should do, requiring them to learn to read and write if to behave well. so it's a profoundly damaging ideology that has been directly injected into school system leadership discussions all across the country, and i do not

believe -- mike: they're against troubled kids getting suspended from school, they also have a big beef with school uniforms. you mentioned clearly they have some high-level support within the administration, so some believe they regret getting caught. >> it's hard to think that when it's not an isolated incident. as you guys covered a few months ago, the biden administration signaled they wanted to fund curriculum inspired by the 1619 project. they kind half backed down after you have enough americans complained. but they're also putting forward for the assistant secretary for the office of -- who has used that office not to protect student civil rights, but to use her position in order to enforce new left-leaning social ideologies on schools and colleges. she was asked the other day after she testified do you believe that it violates student civil rights to segregate students by race, and she would
10:47 am
not answer. do you believe it violates students' civil rights to treat students differently by race, she would not answer. this is not an isolated incident. the department of education fortunately has limited power to direct directly affect what goes on in classrooms, but they've shown every sign of using every tool at their disposal the push this ideology on school sos. mike: the white house and department of education were quick to distance themselves from atn, but when you get something sent to you from the department of education to random school districts in america, there has to be some impact. and this information was out there since april until we reported on it this week. >> no, absolutely. and it's important for every parent in america to know that just because the information is no longer part of the document doesn't mean it hasn't been seen or incorporated in conversations. school districts and states have already been required to submit their plans for what they're doing with covid leaf funding. and as they -- relief funding. and as they had those
10:48 am
discussions, this was front and center in the documents. that will not change, and so it's important that everybody, every parent in america who's waking up to what's really going on in the classroom approach your school board, your principal, your superintendent and is ask them are you putting any of the money you're getting if the federal government into, quote-unquote, diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism? they won't say critical race theory, right in they never admit to it. mike: right. >> but it goes by different names and parents, unfortunately, have to play catch-up and guard dog at this point. mike: max, thanks so much for your time have a good day. georgia authorities have taken a suspect in custody in a case regarding the murder of a child. how they were able to close in on the case next. ♪ ♪ to their medical appointments. that's why i started medhaul.
