homeless. it prohibits sleeping, sitting or storing items on public property your parks, libraries, schools and other facilities. people who violate the new law can receive citation. the city council approved the ordinance wednesday with a 13 -- two vote. >> it will be areas that i think have great concerns like parks and schools, entrances around businesses and locations around homeless housing solutions vardy put in our areas. reporter: critics question where the homeless would go after leading their encampment. they say there's not enough shelter to house them. it would be tougher homeless people who violate the new law to actually pay for a citation. >> to criminalize the homeless population. >> we are not criminalizing anyone for being homeless, we are helping them get connected to services and making our streets safe and clean and
1:11 pm
passable. what's hard to ask here? reporter: l.a. county sheriff alex villanueva set the ordinance doesn't fully stress la's mountainous homeless crisis. >> is a step in the right direction but they didn't go all the way. all they did is try to appease the public outcry without actually addressing the problem. reporter: outreach team to offer shelter and services to the homeless. the law goes into effect in 30 days. jillian: thank you. we will have more ahead on crime and america's biggest cities including sharp rise in murder rates when homicide detectives join us live later this hour. eric: the lone star state justice department in the state of texas over the latest order dealing with illegal migrants. he wants to stop transportation of migrants infected with covid.

walk back, greg abbott responding to the justice department after it sued the state for his order to have
1:16 pm
state troopers pullover and reroute vehicles carrying illegal immigrants. the d.o.j. claims the government is interfering with federal immigration law. he says it's within his authority because some of the migrants could be covered positive and wants to contain a potential outbreak. let's bring texas congresswoman beth, here to react. she's on the health transportation committee and in urban texas. oh boy, there's a lot to unpack so let's begin with, where do you think this is going? >> i think it's probably going in court. you see the governor and members of the state legislature trying to do everything they can to protect their state and the administration is doing everything i can from opening up the border knowing they were opening up the border, hundreds of thousands of people to come through illegally. those are not being tested, they are not wearing masks. we know for a fact some of them have covered and they are
1:17 pm
spreading it in the administration is doing nothing to prevent that. to contrast that to what you saw in d.c. this past week where you've got the speaker of the house threatening to arrest visitors and staff for not wearing masks. it two completely different messages the administration democrat sending out, it's a dangerous message and trying to do everything we can to work with texas to make sure we protect texas. jillian: we do here stories from these towns, stories of people saying migrants, once they are in the country placed in hotels regardless of their status are able to leave the hotels go into the communities in the restaurant and referred stories of people sitting at tables coughing. people in the communities are probably concerned. what are you hearing to people who say you lived there? >> i am hearing exactly that. friends of the border we've got people talking to us who said
1:18 pm
they don't feel comfortable being on their own property. people are coming over armed, gang members, potential terrorists crossing the border and don't feel comfortable on their own land and they don't see the administration doing anything other than feeding it. i note texas and government and others are interested in completing the wall. i wrote a letter to secretary mayorkas' last week saying you may not know this but the state sold land to the federal government with the understanding the land they were selling would be used to build a wall. this administration there not want to build a wall, the state office went back. i sent a letter asking why can't they get their land back? committed to making sure it's actually having an get we don't
1:19 pm
have our federal government willing to work with us. i will let you know i get answers to those questions. these things are still up in the air. jillian: in the meantime, it's fair to say they heavily republican site along the border but not just republicans. you know very well that texas democrat henry has been calling on this administration to do better and we have a quote here, a democrat administration, i've been very respectful about the administration and as i said, you have to listen to me, i want you to listen to the border communities and i want you to listen to the men and women of dhs and their families. why do you think the administration is not listening to a democrat than? >> i think they are playing politics, hell-bent on allowing people into this country illegally. i think their focus is more on outside countries and pretending that it's on our country.
1:20 pm
i think it's sad to have to have members trying to do everything he can to make sure the laws are upheld and being completely ignored. playing politics and the safety of our nation and honestly who got such a place that the majority of the americans are starting to open up this good. the of ministration of newport was doing reversing the policy to trump administration working in absolutely knew what was doing and did it anyway. it is 15 people working at the border if you go down there, it's not just for a photo op but i encourage whoever they are going to have as their border star that they go and talk to the members working with customs and border protection and talk to find out exactly what the issues are and where people are coming up on it having borders prevent them from coming over and allowing people to claim seven the first day in the country with three remain in
1:21 pm
mexico policy, it remained, kept them from coming into states. we have all of these conditions and people coming over without being tested and how is a result of hundreds of thousands crossing our border illegally, almost every month it's going to get worse before it gets better. jillian: we are running out of time that i want to get your opinion on this, lindsey graham have an idea on some what they think should lead the administration border response, listen to what lindsey graham has to say. >> bottom line, we are urging president biden to create a special position to bring order to chaos, put somebody in charge whose focus is just on the border and problems associated with it that would have great ability in the eyes of congress. i can promise you most
1:22 pm
republicans respect jay johnson. jillian: what you think about that? >> is important to get somebody whose focus on this and doesn't just take it as a joke. what's happening at the poor is serious and it's a humanitarian crisis. we need to sit down and listen and being willing to work with leaders are from across the aisle on solutions that will protect this country. i am optimistic but not necessarily as helpful as i could be that the administration will take it seriously. jillian: thank you very much for joining us. appreciate your time. eric. eric: it's been 46 years yesterday since the disappearance of jimmy hoffa. in the years, there have been many claims what happened to the labor leader and where he ended up authorities told our investigating information aired on our fox nations riddle.
1:23 pm
the search for hoffa was buried in a metal trough under an elevated highway in jersey city, new jersey. so we went there and guess what we found. >> it remains the greatest mystery in american history. what happened to jimmy hoffa? the legendary junior leader disappeared july 30, 1975. he was on his way to a meeting with mafia bosses in detroit. finding his remains would help solve the historic case. his father, paul pola and his dump in new jersey for the fbi suspected hoffa was buried. frank told fox nation office body was transported from detroit to the dump where his father bury him. >> you are saying your father buried jimmy hoffa? >> yes. my dad later in the years said he couldn't fit in the drum beat

1:25 pm
ground penetrating radar uses radio frequencies to scan underground and see the unseen. when we hit, multiple frowned shapes that the technician says is metal. the half-moon images piled on top of each other, exactly where and just like what frank said we'd find here. barrels and the drum holding jimmy hoffa. >> something that's metal. >> we found several round shaped metal objects buried here, some on top of each other which fits him exactly into this is another spot here which is the round shape of what could be barrel. exactly where frank pointed out to dan right here. saying this is where jimmy hoffa is buried.
1:26 pm
>> for now, the land remains as it is. it's illegal for fox nation to pick up the barrels so the mystery of what happened to jimmy hoffa remains until law enforcement digs up what we found. for more, watch our episodes of the search for james hoffa on our streaming service, fox nation. eric: shocking to see round what we were told was metal buried right now, still there under the skyway in jersey city on the ground penetrating radar scan. several sources do back up what frank said in the washington author investigative journalist who frank first told about this spot, he says it's the best information he's ever heard about the case. meanwhile, the fbi told us as with any missing person investigation, the fbi is committed to locating mr. hoffa. throughout the nearly six years since his disappearance, people

then started a been in the water. authorities are trying to keep everybody's safe as people flock to the beaches the summer weekend. live on lido beach in new york. that it wasn't a goldfish that fit the lifeguard. [laughter] reporter: you've got that right and there's a couple of those shark sightings and was been talking to people all day long. a lot of people say they know about shark sightings. they are not nervous, their right to proceed with caution may enter the surf especially if they've got their kids with them but the shark sightings this week have happened close to shore up or down this sand here on the south shore of long island have come about the same time shark sightings started happening in the same spot last year. once again nassau county officials fired up chuck patrol unit giving the watters among the south shore of 111 for veins or underwater activity i would signal the need to blow the whistle for lifeguards to get swimmers to shore.

1:45 pm
just want to be careful and be aware of your surroundings in one big thing everybody says in terms of advice is if you are going to swim out in the water, be sure not to get into the dish when there's fish gather together and you see birds on top of the water, that's when you don't want to go there because otherwise he might be mistaken for baitfish. eric: oh man especially with that shark, i'm so glad they say that, but to. be safe on the water. stay on the sand last month. jillian: i do not want to be mistaken as a baitfish but for mark, but bring in a shark researcher and cinematographer on the documentary sin which was viewed earlier this month and stars in it farm director, good to see you. we heard laura talking about what to look out for if you go into the water but maybe this is a dumb question but what if
1:46 pm
you're out there if you do see a shark? >> i would tell people first not to panic. majority of sharks out there don't pose a lot of risk to humans. the ones who do normally don't want anything to do with us the best thing is just to back up out of the water and give the animal space. right now around this time of year is just getting warmer and we are seeing more shark activity but the visibility is not that great. there's a lot of turbulent water it is good to keep an eye on your surroundings and snow they can't see very well and you want to be able to see them. stay away from ducks, don and people fishing on the coast. you delete that attracts watters to them. how you saw in the report a guy catching a shark, it's like bait in the water he usually does that so keep clear of them and be shark smart.
