2:01 am
the latest could pay you just to exist. "fox and friends first," we exist right now. ♪♪ jillian: showing like a dancer. todd: it sounds familiar. jillian: not going crazy, that is the bailable. you are watching "fox and friends first". todd: we start with the $100 offer president biden is making his push to vaccinate americans as mask mandates go into effect. jillian: republicans march
2:02 am
maskless in defiance of speaker pelosi's rules. >> we have come a long way since the president said this on the fourth of july. >> today we are closer than ever to declare independence -- independence from the deadly virus. >> reporter: federal government employee or contractor must show proof of vaccination or face rigorous testing, where he mass, social distance and limit their travel. they don't like calling it a mandate at the white house and are sensitive to going backwards. >> reporter: you made it sounds like losing the mask forever. >> that was true at the time. i thought people getting vaccinated, new variants came along. they didn't get vaccinated, it spread more rapidly and more people got sick.
2:03 am
>> reporter: biden is directing the military to require vaccines. reimbursing small businesses, for ages 12 and up. the country returns to mask mandate including on capitol hill where some refusing to wear a mask can be arrested. capital police saying officers should not arrest any member for failure to wear a mask but any person who fails to comply or leave will be subject to an arrest. house republicans outraged marched from the house to the senate floor in protest yesterday. >> the lunacy that speaker pelosi is trying to get people arrested if they are vaccinated without a mask but on the senate side without a mask, maybe covid knows it needs to stop when it gets close to the senate chamber. >> reporter: they are demanding
2:04 am
the cdc release the data behind the mask mandate reversal and calling out the capital physician doctor brian monahan for not wearing a mask while briefing house members about the new mask mandate. finally what about a return to lockdowns? at the white house, they will listen to the science and cdc. todd: we talked about it this confidence that we love you and hope you have a good weekend. jillian: federal employees being told to mask up migrants are not. the white house deflecting questions about covid positive border crossers being released into the us. todd: governor greg abbott takes action. >> reporter: deflection came from the deputy press secretary after being asked why vaccinated americans are being told to wear a mask and positive border crossers let loose in texas. here is the response. >> cvp provides ppe from the
2:05 am
moment they are taken into custody and migrants are required to keep masks on at all times. if anyone exhibit signs of illness they are referred to local health systems. >> reporter: governor greg abbott signed an executive order restricting ground transportation of migrants at risk of having covid 19 into texas communities that allow stopping of any vehicle with suspicion of the violation. merrick garland is threatening legal action against the order and for abbott to rescind it garland says the order is dangerous and unlawful. the border would jeopardize the health and safety of noncitizens in federal custody and families and communities. the order directly interferes with implementation of federal immigration law. top house republicans lay down a proposal for the border wall to stop the migrant crisis.
2:06 am
>> to resume and complete what donald trump initiated for border wall construction and second is to enhance border technology. we have tremendous technology not being properly utilized and the third is to have more boots on the ground. >> reporter: vp harris released her 5 point plan to combat the crisis, the root cause identifies and coordinates action to improve security governance, human rights and economic conditions in the region. harris followed that up by saying it won't be easy and progress will not be instant but they are committed to getting it right. jillian: we will talk about kamala harris in a second but let's start the conversation in texas, the governor, elected officials, border agents in texas, everybody, even residents have been trying to say we have a problem. we need help fixing this and it
2:07 am
seems nothing is getting done. we talked the border patrol agents, we have the acting ice director on later in the show to give his opinion on this but listen to what the governor has to say about in his words the president caring more about those coming into the country as opposed to those who are already here. take a listen. >> i have a job to protect the safety and health of the people of texas and that includes now preventing president biden from importing covid 19 into texas and the united states. it shows the biden administration cares more about people who are not residents of america than he does of the residents of america. >> we talked to residents on the border communities and a lot of them say i am scared and need to protect my family. you have some people wanting to put up their own money to build that wall in texas and that in itself says a lot.
2:08 am
todd: thanks for that threat by merrick garland, the nation's top attorney, he is ignoring the fact that under the rules of state sovereignty the feds set a baseline and you can go above that. you can't get below that. let's not label it immigration because immigration is federal. what greg abbott is doing is focusing on the safety of individuals and in order to do that he is dealing with the immigrant search, the migrant surge, he's allowed to do that under the laws of state sovereignty. jillian: let's get to kamala harris, the latest poll numbers show she is underwater. look at her favorability rating, 46% favorable, 48% unfavorable july 24th through 20 seventh and democratic strategists telling the whole those numbers have the party concerned about the midterms. right now she has potential of doing more harm than good for some of these candidates. my sense is she will raise a lot
2:09 am
of money and go to some specific district but they will have to be very strategic with her. todd: we are seeing fear leaking out from democratic operatives. a couple weeks ago it was americans don't seem to like crime. americans want to be safe. that's not helping democrats as we look ahead to 2022. now the kamala harris situation, 18 jobs, she's doing none of them well and people are starting to realize that and she proposes is 5 point plan to stop the root causes in underlying countries, shut it off at the border, you don't have to worry about the underlying countries, deal with it in time, you can do both. the fact that she's not doing both is understandable why if you're a congressperson in a border state, arizona, texas, you're like i don't want you campaigning. jillian: we had on fox news democratic officials in some of
2:10 am
these states who say there's a problem. this is not a 1-sided thing at this point. todd: it is an american thing. jillian: another reminder, former acting ice director will join us later this hour. todd: to tokyo we go. the fifth straight american woman to win olympic gold in the all-around gymnastics competition. the last american to do it cheering on her teammate, simone biles. jillian: team usa racking up more metals, teammate and friend in the women's 200 meter breaststroke final. the us has the most metals total with 41 so far. when it comes to gold china leads and japan with 15 as the us trailing behind with 14. todd: ever try the breaststroke? i did. jillian: like one summer i

todd: did you see this? a new york times op-ed questioning americans principle and basic democratic right to voting. jillian: it argues there is no good reason you should have to be a citizen to vote. fox news contributor joe concha, i will not go to another country to vote for something. do you get it? >> you are not running to new zealand to vote in their elections. jillian: i could change my mind. >> the tea leaves our grace, 24 hours -- this is an opinion piece, not in the news section
2:16 am
and opinions -- we've all got one and by and large they stink. the new york times greenlighted this speaks volumes. here you have what the end game is for many democrats on illegal immigration where you have 1.1 million people already entered the country illegally this year alone and that is for people to enter this country, illegally vote, tipping the scales of power for the democrat party because the 2020 presidential election is a prime example. states like georgia decided by 10,000, arizona 12,000, wisconsin one percentage point, pennsylvania michigan very thin. you are talking about donald trump right now. the disconnect between the time to the american public for pushing this because 80% of voters support voter id that you are a citizen here, you live here in this op-ed says it doesn't matter who you are or if you are paying taxes, you can legally prove your here, give

anyone and everyone the right to vote. at some point you expect an op-ed from the time saying let's allow all high schoolers to vote on those on death row because that seems to be where this is going. jillian: drugs and alcohol. will: that is why you're at home. todd: you did the 30,000 foot view. let's read part of this piece, quote, washingtonians love to complain about taxation without representation but for me and fellow noncitizens it is a fact that we submit to unquestioning year after year primary after primary presidential election after presidential election. does the offer not understand that would allow every person in the world to vote in our elections and the insane consequence that would mean. if you have 8 billion people that undermines the vote of the 330 that exist in the country now.
2:18 am
>> sometimes i think in our world we just read the headline. when you read this entire piece it is scary to think about what is being proposed. you could have those from other countries coming in and impacting the election and leaving. this is dangerous stuff. they have not endorsed a republican presidential candidate since 1956 yet they are the paper of record so this shows where they are in terms of how they align with the far left democratic wings, not the moderate democrats who may disagree with this. jillian: do you think this point we are putting too much weight on opinions? everyone has one and they are out there for all to see. nowadays because there is so much, you read some opinion pieces like that and makes you
2:19 am
scratch your head. why is this out there? i don't know. >> it is labeled an opinion in the opinion section. what we see with media and so many people tell pollsters is they don't trust it anymore because they can tell the difference between what is supposed to be opinion it was supposed to be a news program, look at cnn and prime time and anderson cooper, chris cuomo and don lemon as anchors, they are partisan opinion makers, activists. in cuomo's case and lemon's case, yet they are called anchors and they will tell you we are just seeking truth and giving the facts, you're giving your opinion and that is where everything is convoluted. todd: once it gets out in the ether are no matter how inane the idea is someone will run with it and another person will run with it and something like this could take hold and we are in for a world of hurt and we see it over and over again. i want you to have a good weekend.

on average covid deaths as we did when we dropped the mask mandate. my state in indiana, we have less covid cases and covid deaths than when we dropped all of the mask mandate and the restrictions as well. if you follow the science, there is no logic here. here's what i learned in washington, d.c. in my service over four years when democrats have control, they love the power that comes with it. they want you to wear a mask forever, they take pleasure in forcing restrictions on your lives. that's exactly what this mask mandate is. it's coming to a town -- it start on capitol hill but these democrats want to push these mask mandates and restrictions all other the country again. it makes no sense. there is no science to back it up. todd: quickly, if there is any good news for you, congressman, can you officially remove nancy pelosi off the christmas list this year in light of recent events and save yourself a stamp. you want clarity whether it comes to the white house when it comes to masks i don't know if you are getting it from biden

when you see this. watch. >> maybe the best way to start is significant part of the country you wouldn't have to take one of these off, you don't have to put one on like in my home state of delaware because people got vaccinated. they got vaccinated. >> that's really confusing. he is talking about wearing a mask not wearing a mask. jillian: don't have to because they are vaccinated. todd: how is the average american supposed to dissect all this, this mixed messaging? >> they can't. too difficult to digest. the cdc has put out recommendations that say one thing one day. something very different the next day the american people are -- they have given up on following our nation's leadership on all of this because it's too confusing. no one is more confusing than president biden on all of this. americans want to move forward. they understand that with covid brings challenges, but the science backs up dropping the mask, quit masking our kids in schools, lift the mandates on
2:59 am
businesses and let america get back on track. don't hold us back. that's what democrats want to do they want to hold us pack and remask us and shut down businesses, shut down schools. that's what's coming from these democrats at this point because they love the power that comes with these mandates. jillian: we want to get your opinion on this real quick before we go. house republicans have a new call for wall construction contracts in the new border security plan and qui bring up graphics here to show you this. under president biden's weak leadership this border crisis knows no limits weak border security. that is said by congressman john katko, with that being said there's was ms-13 gang member arrested ranch in southern texas. what needs to happen now. >> every state is a border state at this point and governor abbott in texas called on all the states to help him build wall, we had this $22 billion block grant program that many of us support brian babbitt from
3:00 am
texas is leading the effort that would give states resources to build the wall since the federal government has fallen flat on its face. todd: congressman jim banks, you have had a busy last couple weeks there on capitol hill. we appreciate you getting up with us. thank you so much. have a great weekend. jillian: thank you. >> good to be with you. todd: have a good weekend. jillian: i keep forgetting it's friday. i'm so thrown off. todd: we can tell you "fox & friends" starts right now. >> freedom comes responsibility. >> as the president you said if you are fully vaccinated you no longer need to wear a mask. >> no, i didn't say that. >> if you have been fully vac sin nayed, you no longer need to wear a mask. >> u.s. capitol police are threatening to arrest any visitor or staffer who refuses to wear a mask. >> nancy pelosi is totally off the rails and she has gone totally nuts. >> senators come to agreement on infrastructure package progressives say the price tag should be higher. >> squad member cori bush pointing to issues of race. >> is this the bipartisan
