their mistakes and keep new yorkers safe. former president donald trump in a speech last night also condemning the recent attacks. >> it's a crime wave the likes of which we've never seen before. it's scary. people are afraid to walk down the streets of new york. and nobody gets prosecuted. >> reporter: in new york city, murders have increased 3% from last year and up 37% from 2019. shootings up 232% this year and up 104% from two years ago. assault is up nearly 6% from this time last year and about 3% from 2019. mayoral candidates including democratic nominee eric adams have expressed the need to bring down crime. on mid night republican mayoral candidate curtis sliwa called for more security. cameras after three separate women were attacked in a park in upper manhattan. >> this is just another sign of lawlessness and disorder that is

plaguing new york city. middle village is not the place that you would normally have ever had something like this take place. >> reporter: and when looking at these reports, city crime is not as high as it was in the early '90s, but it does show an alarming trajectory especially since many of these latest cases are innocent bystanders caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, jon. jon: some horrifying statistics there. alex hogan, thank you. hundreds of migrants continue to pour across our southern border today e decan spite triple-digit heat in some parts of texas. board patrol says about 350 migrants arrived at the border just this morning. bill melugin is live at the boarder in del rio, texas. bill. >> reporter: good evening to you. this is one of the biggest groups we have ever witnessed down here at the border, and keep in mind, you know, people were thinking that perhaps in the middle of this summer heat,
3:06 pm
late july here in texas, maybe this border crisis would start to slow down a little bit. from what we've seen on the ground, it looks like it's only getting worse. just take a look at what we witnessed today right here in del rio. sunday morning in del rio, texas, a large line of single adult men, mostly haitians, are walked through border fence by border patrol and taken into custody. they're part of a massive group of more than 350 that showed up here. one of the biggest groups we have ever seen. the migrants coming from all around the world, mostly haitians, some cubans and brazilians, even some from africa including this couple from ghana. she's a baker, he's an electrician, and they're hoping to get to hartford, connecticut, where they have friends. exclusive video to fox news shows the groups of migrants as they cross the rio grande early this morning from mexico. the perspective from the mexican city across from del rio where we witnessed a steady stream of migrants crossing while the
3:07 pm
river was running lower from. a drone perspective above they arrive here at the border fence several hundred strong, a scene we've seen play out every single day here this week. under the blistering summer sun and the texas heat, the migrants wait hours to be picked up by an overwhelmed and overstretched border patrol. all of them eventually loaded into border patrol buses and vans and taken away to processing centers. for these federal agents, this is repeated over and over every day with no end in sight. and, jon, we still have migrants showing up behind us right now as we speak. we still have migrants waiting to be picked up who showed up this morning. border patrol don't have the resources to get enough vans to pick everybody up at once. the administration is claiming that extreme progress is being made down here at the border. the numbers just don't reflect that. june number z were a 20-year record high, and just this evening the border patrol sector chief town in the rio brand

representativeses banks and jordan. republicans in congress accuse the biden administration of colluding with big tech n. a letter to surgeon general, they also accuse him of working with companies like facebook to censor americans and request documents about any communication the surgeon general has had with big tech companies. the biden administration says it is trying to combat covid misinformation online. our next guest just founded the freedom from big tech caucus to take on big tech. colorado republican congressman ken buck, member of the house judiciary committee, he's also the ranking member of the house judiciary's antitrust subcommittee. so in this scary covid time, big tech could be helpful? it could also be a weapon if used incorrectly. what to you see as the problem with the way some of these companies are operating right now? >> well, they're clearly
3:10 pm
censoring material, and they -- this is an ongoing situation where we don't know exactly what the truth is and what the best answer is. and the best thing we could do in america is to have an open and hively debate. -- lively debate. and for a group of people to suggest that covid didn't only nate in china or to suggest that masks should be used in a particular way without any debate, without any open discussions is a mistake. and i think for the biden administration to try to shut down discussion, it's disgraceful. i think people are making decisions right now about their own health, whether they want to take a vaccine, whether they don't want to take a vaccine, how they want to use a mask, who they want to associate with, when they want to go back to be work, when they want to, you know, engage in other activities. i think those decisions are only made with a broad range of information. jon: so talk about this freedom from big tech caucus that you have formed along with some other members of the house. what would you like to see?
3:11 pm
i mean, how could a handful of members of congress take on some of the most powerful companies in the world? >> what i'd like to see is i'd like to see our antitrust laws enforced, our antitrust laws updated. i'd like to see five bag to9ings -- googles, seven facebooks and nine twitters. i'd like to see competition in the marketplace. we need to make sure that we level the playing field and let the small players get a foothold and make sure that they are able to compete so that we don't have the kind of censorship. when we look at cable tv, newspapers, talk radio, we don't talk about censorship. we may have bias on one side or the other, but we don't have censorship. and not only a monopoly can censor like google and facebook and amazon and apple, and we need to make sure that those companies have competition so that that information about whether it's covid or a presidential election or other
3:12 pm
issues get out before the public. jon: but not to be defending of facebook, isn't one of the appeals of, for instance, that operating platform that i can go online, i could join facebook, and i could reach anybody, anywhere in the world who is also part of that platform? if you break it up, doesn't that ruin some of the allure? >> well, i'm not talking about breaking up, i'm talking about allowing competition. you can also e-mail everybody in the world right now because we have a number of different e-mail options, and we should have a firm of different facebook options. and when that happens, it actually makes the marketplace stronger because you don't have one group deciding what is politically correct speech. jon: all right. let's talk about something else, the infrastructure package that is working it way, we understand, through the house of representatives. here's what nancy pelosi had to say about it a little bit ago.
3:13 pm
all right -- >> what she has just said is entirely counter to what president biden has committed to and what the senate is doing, which is a two-step process. the infrastructure bill has nothing to do with the reckless tax and spend extravaganza that she's talking about in terms of what reconciliation as she called it. so, no, i'm not happy with what she said because it's inconsistent with the agreement that we have on a bipartisan basis. jon: that, obviously, ohio senator rob portman answering nancy pelosi's suggestion that the house is not even going to consider the infrastructure bill until it gets out of the senate. your thoughts on that argument. >> well, i think we're getting a lot of mixed messages. at first we heard it was going to be done through reconciliation which is a budget gimmick that allows the democrats to pass something in the senate with less than 60 votes, and now hearing that the infrastructure package needs to be beefed up even though in the senate it's being negotiated in
3:14 pm
a bipartisan way. i think nancy pelosi's unsatisfied with it, she's not going to put it on the floor until there's more money spent. how much more money can americans hand? we have inflation right now at levels we haven't seen in a long time. we have spending, we have people not willing to go back to work because they are getting supplemental money. we have a number of issues. i don't think this infrastructure bill is timed at the right time. and it certainly isn't going to be popular among republicans in the house if it is a huge, another huge spending bill. jon: it seems like, you know, the mar gins are -- margins are very close. 50-50 in the senate republicans and democrats. democrats have a few, a small extra number of seats in the house. would this not be a time to be bipartisan, to try to to get both parties onboard and prove to the american people that you
3:15 pm
can actually get with legislation passed? >> it is absolutely time to be bipartisan, and that is not a word that is in nancy pelosi's vocabulary. it's unfortunate, but the way she is handling this january 6th commission, the way she's handled a lot of other issues just don't demonstrate her willingness to work in a bipartisan manner, and it's unfortunate. because when it comes to the people's business, when it comes to the priorities that americans are demanding -- getting out of this covid economy, getting back up and running, dealing with issues like infrastructure, education, the crime problem that we have in this country right now, people are demanding bipartisanship. and it's time that congress acted that way. jon: congressman ken buck, republican of colorado. congressman, thank you. >> thank you. jon: in the west, the weather is helping firefighters just a bit as they battle some of the nation's biggest wildfires. what officials say is still a long road ahead, plus this --

3:28 pm
>> reporter: after months of back and forth negotiations, it appears the senate is this close to a deal on infrastructure. this would certainly be a major legislative win for the white house, and the president himself is urging congress to act. this $1.2 trillion proposal would help rebuild roads, bridges and airports, it also addresses climate change and economic disparity. it does spend significantly less money than what the president originally called for, but lawmakers insist it's a deal both parties can embrace. >> president trump's proposal was for $1.5 trillion in infrastructure, ours is about $579 billion over five years. so this is the right thing to do. it's been totally bipartisan from the start. >> reporter: while the senate appears to act, house speaker nancy pelosi says infrastructure will have to wait. she's demanding the senate also pass a much larger spending bill costing more than $3 trillion tied to democratic priorities for so-called human infrastructure before she'll

3:30 pm
golfers. meanwhile, dr. anthony fauci hinting the cdc might change its guidelines to again recommend masks for those who are vaccinated. he says the policy change is, quote, under active consideration. let's bring in johns hopkins university professor of public health, dr. marty makary, also the author of the new book "the price we pay" and a fox news contributor. so we got the vaccines, we were told once you got advantage is i nateed -- vaccinated, you didn't have the wear masks anymore, now washington may be going back the oh direction. can you explain, dr. ma a carry? what's going on? >> well, jon, i think some people have gotten the false notion that we should see complete elimination of the virus. it's going to be here for decades, probably for the rest of our lifetime. it'll circulate as a seasonal flu, and that's what happens when we get high levels of population immunity. remember, we've got 95% of senior ises in america now -- seniors in america now with
3:31 pm
immunity, and habit half the unvaccinated have natural immunity. with adults, 70% have vaccinated immunity. so what you're seeing right now is power of immunity is a downgrading of the infection down to a very mild common cold or an asymptomatic infection. that is not something that should alarm us,es that is part of season isal viruses that circulate are each year. jon: so here's dr. fauci on these mask mandates that might be coming back. listen. >> if you look at what's going on locally in the trenches in places like l.a. county, the local officials have the discretion, and the cdc greece with that ability and discretion to -- and capability to say, you know, we're having a lot of dynamics of infection, so even if you are vaccinated, you should wear a mask. jon: so what do you think about that, dr. makary?
3:32 pm
americans are, frankly, pretty tired of wearing masks. do we need to keep wearing them? >> i'd love to see the data. right now it's an unknown. we're in uncharted territory. what we do know is the people susceptible to the more highly contagious delta variant -- by the way, it's about twice as contagious as the previous u.k. variant -- those are at risk people with no immunity. that's a small section of the united states, and right now they have chosen not to get vaccinated at their own individual risk. asking every american to change their lifestyle for their benefit is not something where i think there's political will in those parts of the country and what you're going to see is places that like to go from an advisory to a mandate, and they tend to be in areas with high population immunity already, not the areas where there's low vaccination rates where we're seeing the outbreaks right now. jon: there's something of a surge in hospitalizations underway. if we look at the
3:33 pm
hospitalizations for can covid compared9 with the previous calendar week, they are up 39%. but the good news is that number of hospitalizations is still lower than any point since at least august of last year. the delta variant seems to be the problem right now, but overall the news is pretty good regarding covid. >> well, that's right. remember, we went from a very extremely low level of hospitalizations for covid to a low level. and when you have a starting baseline rate that's so so low, you can describe an increase of, say, 10-20 hospitalizations, that's a 100% increase. but the reality is the increases we're seeing are in no places forcing hospitals to close down other services or elect we've surgery, and they're in very specific areas of low vaccination, five states contributing to 50% of new cases. and remember, a lot of hospitals are still routinely testing
3:34 pm
everyone who walks into the door. your more likely to light up with a positive test with the delta variant. jon: you had a "wall street journal" piece this week that talked about the vaccination of children, and you call it a misguided effort, i think, from the cdc to push vaccinating children. why? >> well, it may be that kids could benefit from a vaccine and from a vaccine that's dosed differently than the current dose which i believe is probably too high of a dose, the two-dose regimen. a study in israel showed one dose was 100% effective in kids. but the data that they're using to put masks on them and push vaccination is bad data, and that's something they should be doing a better job at given that they've got 21,000 employees at the agency. we've really converted from being pro-vaccine vaccine to
3:35 pm
vaccine fanaticism, and the cdc misrepresented data on adolescent hospitalizations that i described in the piece. jon: dr. marty makary, thank you. >> thank you, jon. jon: in northern california thousands of homes are being threatened by a massive wildfire. the dixie fire is the largest wildfire in california so far this year. more than 190,000 acres are have burned, more than 10,000 homes could be in danger. christina coleman is in los angeles with the latest on that. christina. >> reporter: hi, jon. dangerously hot and dry conditions are fueling fire danger here in california and throughout the west as these out of control fires continue to burn, destroying homes, forcing thousands of people to evacuate. it's it's treatmently tough on many families -- it's extremely tough. the dixie e fire in northern california grew even larger today after it merged with another fire. it's the large wildfire in the state right now. it's destroyed at least 16 structures and threatened nearly

leadership that has gone on now for half a year. the filibuster debate has tied up the congress, has occupied much of the media. and yet all along president biden has not changed his view from when he was a senator. as a senator, he ve is healthily opposed efforts to get rid of the filibuster as did then-senator obama, as did chuck schumer before he was majority leader. and so the difference between those individuals and president biden is, in fact, he is president now. i mean, we demand something more from a prime president, from leadership. you can't wait for polls to give you cover. and instead he lets this raging, divisive debate continue, and it was very disappointing. not surprise, buddies appointing that it took -- but disappointing that it took so long. jon: you write about about that in your piece in "the hill."
3:44 pm
his support for the filibuster, that position was with less surprising than the timing. this is the six month mark of biden's inauguration, but he just got around to telling his party that he does not support efforts to kill the filibuster. why not do it from day one? >> well, that's part of the baffling aspect9 of this. -- aspect of this. president biden came into office and said that he want withed to unify the country. this was a way to extinguish with some of these flames, to direct his party to more useful and productive efforts. but instead, he let the fire rage for six months. he's done the same thing with packing the supreme court which he once referred to as boneheaded. but then he refused to state his position during the campaign, he still refuses to give his position. and i'm afraid the only conclusion you can reach is that this is a lack of political courage. you know, president biden has been extremely flexible in his positions as a politician.
3:45 pm
he tends to go with the polls. but he is now president of the united states. we need something more than someone when's watching the polls for the right moment to state the right thing. jon: a number of democratic senators have said over the years that the filibuster was important. now majority leader chuck schumer is among them. then-senator joe biden wanted to keep the filibuster, and an illinois senator named barack obama wanted to keep the filibuster. but there have been efforts to water it down. senator mark warper, democrat of virginia -- warner, says that all of this watering down may have actually hurt the process. listen. >> i would wish we wouldn't even have started this a decade ago. when the democratic leaders actually changed the rules, i don't think we'd have the supreme court we did if we still had a 60-vote margin on the filibuster. but we are we are, and the idea
3:46 pm
is somehow to protect the rights of the minority in the senate. we're going to cut out rights of minorities and young people all across the country? that's just not right to me. jon: so, again you know, the votes seem to change or the positions seem to change depending on which party is in the majority. >> well, the problem with senator warner's explanation is it's completely incoherent. i mean, the thing is either you support the filibuster rule to force come prohis, or you don't -- compromise. you tonight say i support it except in those areas where i really don't want to see to it used against me. the whole point is, of course, compromised. and there's perhaps no better time for such a rule. the senate and the house are held by razor thin margins. in the senate it's 50/50. they're relying on the vice president. and how is it the smallest margin in decades? so this is actually a time when the filibuster rule would seem
3:47 pm
to make sense to get all of these hyper. partisan individuals to have to compromise whether they want to or not. jon: and that is what the senate is supposed to be, right? the teacup -- i'm sorry, the saucer that cools the spilled tea of the house. >> right. it's supposed to be the world's most deliberative body, but it's not. it looks a lot like the house in the last six months. and, by the way, joe biden was never viewed as a senator who was commanded by principles. he hardly stood out in that way. it was almost charming, the fact that he never really claimed to be driven by high principles. he was a politician's politician. and many of us liked him because he would get things done. the reason he supported the filibuster before is that he's the ultimate tactician. he knows what's needed to get things done. some so this is a circumstance where you would think that that
