over the weekend. hopefully they can get to that in those cities. back to you guys. steve: ashley, thank you very much. over the weekend saturday and sunday in new york 1 people wounded, three killed. one of the stories and not all the stories and this is a the first time we have ever seen where there has been get away scooters involved in this coordinated attack. but over the weekend as well. police officer who was assigned to and there is the get away scooters right there. an officer who was specifically assigned to gun violence was shot by a gang bangser with a gun. gang banger 25 times be before arrested. he probably would have killed the guy had his smith and wesson ♪ jam-packed. this guy 29 times, 8 felonies why was he on the streets in the "new york post" today on the op-ed page talks about how it's these prosecutors and judges who go you know what? let's just let them out. that's the cover of the "new

3:06 am
outrage when whether it's a particular intersection in manhattan, there are shops and stores. whether it's times square. that's where you get the outrage from the public when it is these type of occurs that occur nightly. there were 18 people shot on saturday in new york city. when these type of crimes that occur nightly around the city and the lesser known parts, you don't hear about it. the democrats in charge in this state have changed the bar on the tolerance level on what we can accept as far as violence in new york city. steve: that's the key. what level of violence are people willing to accept? nobody wants any of it. but, i will tell you. what every time i get out of a taxi on the streets of new york city, i wonder, i look around and i think am i going to be able to get to the building? am i going to be able to walk over to starbucks or to dunkin' donuts. pete: next thing i think about is not get hit by the new bike lane. steve: got to be watching that
3:07 am
going that way but they come this way. ainsley: traffic is going becoming a big problem in, no. they took up some of these streets. pete: it's true pack of your head. ainsley: watching around you do think about it outdoor restaurants in new york. my friend in atlanta thinks about it every time she and her husband go out to dinner. steve: no kidding. at this point it's not like anybody stopping going out for dinner people have been cooped up so long. ainsley: move on with your life but it's always in the back of our minds. steve: so is covid because we are still not out from underneath the pandemic. last week the government really screwed up their messaging because on tuesday they came out, the cdc came out and said do you know what? forget about the fact that we said if you got the vaccine you would never have to wear a mask again. now you are going to have to wear a mask again. essentially what they were saying so many unvaccinated people and delta variant is so contagious everybody has got to put the mask back on. then the next day "the washington post" ran alarmist
3:08 am
piece talking about how contagious it was. pete: totally misleading. steve: it didn't cite any science. it was apparently part of it based on the 4th of july event up in province town, massachusetts where a lot of people who had been vaccinated got sick. ainsley: got this delta variant. hospitalizations are up. 97% of the people who are hospitalized are people that are there with covid. they did not get vaccinated. but, you are right. to your point the people who got vaccinated we were told to get vaccinated you can take your mask off. that's why a lot of people didn't. now we are all wondering are our kids going to go back to school. are we going to be on lockdowns again. dr. fauci was talking about this on some of the weekend shows. he says he disagrees that masks are a choice. he wants you to wear your mask. watch this. >> i don't think we're going to see lockdowns. i think we have enough of the percentage of people in the
3:09 am
country, not enough to crush the outbreak, but i believe enough to not allow us to get into the situation we were in last winter. but things are going to get worse. a person's individual, individual decision to not wear a mask, not only impacts them but of course if they get infected even though they say it's my decision if i get infected i will worry about that. but the fact is if you get infected, even if you are without symptoms, you very well may infect another person who may be vulnerable. who may get seriously ill. so, in essence, you are encroaching on their individual rights because you are making them vulnerable. pete: fauci may make the case that masks shouldn't be a personal choice. he can say that all he wants his credibility is minuscule. people are going to make their own choices. that includes schools for kids. that includes restaurants that
3:10 am
you go to. the only place that i absolutely have to wear a mask at this point is the airport. i can't tele port to los angeles. but, otherwise, if businesses start requiring it, i think people will stop doing businessbusiness at those busin. that's a personal choice. steve: danny meyers decided this past week only vaccinated people will be allowed to eat in the restaurant. and apparently so many people are worried about the delta variant and everything, they want to be around other vaccinated people. in that particular case is good for business. pete: could be. ainsley: not a personal choice. everyone should be masked up he is saying. individuals telling you you have to be masked. there are rules for thee and not for me. we are seeing that again in the d.c. area. the behavior d.c., you can see her there.
3:11 am
someone at this wedding took a picture of her without her mask on just a few hours after she said everyone has to wear masks indoors. she did outdoor wedding first and went inside for reception and she was caught without a mask. pete: bunch of statements mask up d.c. we are masking up again. she went to a party the night before taken effect. hasn't taken effect yet. now we get these new images of a wedding. this comes alongside all the other examples of this is the party the night before the mask mandate with dave chapelle. do they really believe the guidelines they are asking the rest of us to follow? it doesn't look like. pete: her office put out a statement and said saturday jule officiated a roof top ceremony in the adams ceremony followed by indoor dinner. the mayor wore a mask indoors in compliance with the mandate. the ventricle could you staff
3:12 am
worked to create a safe environment for the staff and guests. can we put the picture back up where she is inside following the rules? now, a wider shot of that -- there is a wider shot that shows six people. and nobody is eating. you know, they say that if you are eating or drinking you don't have to wear the mask. in that everybody is looking one direction. >> one guy is wearing a mask. steve: there is one guy. probably looking at the head table a speech going on. nobody looks like they're eating or drinking. for the mayor's office to say she was fine except when she was eating or drink she go removed it looked like nobody is wearing the mask right there. apparently somebody from "the washington examiner" says i want to talk to the mayor about not wearing the mask her security detail kept the reporter away from the mayor. pete: i see. it recall she has security detail not, you don't. supposed to be the police.

correct that the house and house leadership had the opportunity to vote to extend the moratorium and there were many, a handful of conservative democrats in the house that threatened to get on planes rather than hold this vote. we have to really just call a spade a spade. we cannot in good faith blame the republican party when house democrats have the majority. steve: and speaker pelosi adjourned for recess on friday before the moratorium ran out and blamed the republicans but it's clearly the democrat because the democrats who hold the majority couldn't figure out what to do. pete: there are enough sensible democrats who say you can't just continue extending eviction bans forever there are landlords out there. there is rent to be paid there sun employment money that's out there. and ultd 3459ly what it is it is socialist democrats who want those covid protocols. steve: more, more, more. ainsley: we watched her interview and we're going to play a clip of this. you might want to set this up. landlord in brooklyn.

talked to robert redfield, he said that satellite photos in september of 2019 showed increased traffic to hospitals and medical facilities in the area before long, we're going toned up calling this covid 2018. and there is also evidence of issues of not just lab leak because that's become a more and more suspicious. what was going on in the lab? we're trying to get to the bottom of this. could the viruses there have combined genetics? could have they have been run through humanized mice. we always think of science fiction was something done with genetic editing it could have been the way the virus was grown in the lab and leaked out of the lab. all of this bears further and further investigation which president biden has promised us but, of course, it's right now not across the aisle in terms of the investigation ainsance we were led to believe that the first cases were seen in the wuhan area november of 26rbg 19. you are saying september before

rapid act is livestock loss, crop loss and damage. perimeter fence replacement. damages to physical structures and property loss. you know, it just seems, brent, if the administration is going to say okay, we're going to go ahead and let these people come across our southern border that they would also come up with some cash directly to help you folks out. instead, they are saying, do you know what? there is extra money in the covid fund. just take some of that because there is so much of that. >> yeah. well, right now, they're bringing covid, too. our jail system right now in our county is basically locked down because the jailers and everyone in it has covid from all the inmates. steve: that's something. you were talking earlier about are personal safety and some people have had to hire people to help them out with personal security. when you go out on your property, which is right there on the southern border, do you feel safe at night?
3:46 am
not at all. >> we don't even feel safe during the day. if you don't have a gun with you, you are taking chance. and it's sad that that's reality we live in today. but, you know, we have the laws. [broken audio] we don't need new laws. we need a president who actually enforces the laws on the book. sad day in american history we have to force our president to act and enforce the laws on the peculiars. steve: what we have seen, he has no intention of doing that part. his policy. we have heard from the secretary of homeland security. the strategy is, woulding. and according to you, part of the strategy is damaging texas landowner's property along the way. >> very true. >> we have true. and not only dang to us, as landowners, the migrants coming over, too. you know, it's damaging them. they are being left out. the cartels are absolute control of both sides of the border right now. they have no control of the border. there is no border.

3:54 am
we are not currently set up to meet the requirements as of january 1st. and i don't believe a lot of producers are. not only given the fact of the capital requirements to adjust our systems accordingly, also as it relates to the animals that we have in our herd as of right now and whether they are actually compliant as well. pete: wow. it sounds like you are not alone, glenn. just 4% of hog operations nationwide. 4% currently comply with california's new rules and 15% of all pork consumed in the u.s. is consumed in california. it's a huge market. and only 4% of the country is able to meet it you said capital requirements. you are saying you will have to spend millions if you want to change the way do you your pork production. is what you are doing right now inhumane? that's the implication of this law? >> well, this requirement, this ballot initiative was led by animal activists.
3:55 am
and it certainly seems to me and others that the animal activists mislead hardworking californians really on the backs of animal welfare and kind of this my evidence at this that grows in today's consumer where their food actually comes from. they did that like the wolf wearing sheep's clothing in the approach how they did that it's really kind of an agenda of veganism and anti-meat to the cost perspective, yeah, i mean, for us to convert our system, and mind you, pete, the rules, the actual requirements of the rules still have not been full-timized yet. they are looming to a deadline here come the first of the year. would cost the industry, if we all converted would run hundreds of millions of dollars for what really will not in our opinion, do anything to improve animal welfare, to certainly improve

environmental stewardship. worker safety, as well as food safety. in fact, in some cases it, actually backs those initiatives up after deck casdz of progress across pork production. pete: as for consumers in california and i would presume across the country it, just means bacon and all pork products are going to get more expensive, right? >> yeah. that's correct. we would estimate that you could see initial prices up as high as 30 to 50%. but i think what's most important to note here, particularly in california and this is true in other part of the country is pork is a desired cuisine and by a lot of diverse population so african-americans, asian americans, certainly the hispanic population. they use pork as a staple of their diet in their house. pete: it's a great point we have to leave it there. we are out of time. thank you for enlightening this morning we appreciate it let's save the bacon.

4:04 am
leak. now there is more, you know, they have looked at some evidence that showed that apparently there was -- sorry about that. there was at that brand new building a move to fix the air conditioner and the air handlers and the water treatment. pete: brand new. ainsley: what happened, fox news got ahold of this new congressional report. and it says months before the covid outbreak, in the wuhan lab, that they requested bids from major renovations air safety and waste treatment systems. pete: interesting. ainsley: sorry to interrupt you. the labs were only two years old. they are wondering why this looks suspicious. pete: you buy a house you shouldn't having to be renovate it two years later out of the gait. this report from the house foreign affairs committee lays it out. such a significant renovation, ainsley, to your point so soon after the facility began operation appears unusual. all raise questions about how
4:05 am
well these systems were functioning in the months prior to the outbreak of covid-19. steve: right. what do we know about covid? it's a pets pier tore thing. it's spread by my air requesting into somebody else's lungs and nose and everything else. i mean, over the last month, we have learned so much about viral loads in noses and stuff like that. a year ago we didn't know any of that stuff. we were busy watching everything down with really strong clorox wipes because we thought you could get it that way. no, but when you put this with the other stuff, it's just another circumstantial evidence that suggests it was a lab leak. remember, those three lab workers who got so sick at that lab they had to go to the hospital. and, you know, china says yes, cold and flu season. that's probably what it is. , we can't locate the records or anything like that. plus, the world military games were being played in wuhan in october of 2019. and, you know, there was not great attendance, and what we
4:06 am
have heard is apparently an illness was sweeping through that crowd. ainsley: there were 9,000 athletes participated in that represented about 100 different countries. so when you talk to your friends, i'm sure you have heard this some of your friends will say didn't really come to america until january of 2020. steve: that we know of. ainsley: that we know of. now, if you talk to some friends they say i think i had it before that i lost smell and taste. didn't know what it was. just thought it was a bad flu or whatever. so this just begs the question did this start in september? did it start in october in wuhan and they never told us anything? pete: we don't know. i have heard of the same. i want to know why i have never been invited to the world military games. not prepared to compete. in wuhan. i'm glad i didn't. steve: if they are letting out bids, ghidz cents of 2019. you know, that would have to be a problem for a long time. it's a government agency.
4:07 am
it's like it hadn't worked for a year. ainsley: does this mean, steve, they thought it was spreading and they needed to change the systems back in september? or did they think that it spread because the systems they had in place were not working well? steve: these are great questions to ask them but they are not providing any answers. pete: few answers from dr. marc siegel earlier in the program reacting to new report on the wuhan lab. listen. >> why would a lab that's only 2 years old suddenly have issues with waste treatment and air safety, air safety with respiratory viruses in that lab? and, also, he reported, why is the wuhan military games a ghost town? in other words, there were no fans, much as we have seen here in september of 2019, ainsley? and people were reportedly getting sick at those games and people came from other countries to those games. and, you know, also, when i talked to robert redfield he said that satellite photos in september of 2019 showed increased traffic to hospitals
4:08 am
and medical facility in the area, before long we are going to end up calling this covid 2018. pete: can never forget this was derided by the health bureaucrats and social media folks as an absolute conspiracy theory for months. people were banned. for suggesting that it could have been a lab leak. you couldn't say that you were banned for saying that remember, that when they tell you something else you can't say has to be banned. ainsley: hopefully we will have answers in a few weeks, the deadlines about to expire. remember joe biden tolded intel committee to your point earlier we need to find out the origins so they are investigating it. steve: you know what? we could know within a month. and then what will the president do if it jumped from the lab and they covered it up and they knew about it for months before it spread around the world. what will joe biden do in, you know, in response to that because, clearly, try china knows exactly what happened. pete: they do. ainsley: let's talk about what's
4:09 am
happening on the border. family room video shows 1,000 illegal immigrants held by border patrol. pete: it comes as biden administration proposes spending millions in taxpayer dollars on legal services not for you. but for illegal immigrants. steve: griff jenkins joins us live from the white house. griff, these are images that the administration does not want us to see and the only way we are able to provide them is we have got a drone. pete: that's right, steve, pete, ainsley. good morning this latest video plus a tweet by border patrol chief lays bear the cheer magnitude and undeniable emergency crisis at the border. you are looking now at the fox drone footage shot here. largest group of migrants ever seen under the bridge ground zero in the rgv. we estimate this is over 1,000. it is the same place, steve, where back in march middle of march, we broke this story with this leaked photo of a large group under that same bridge,
4:10 am
now, after more than four months, being slammed every single day the rgv chief brian hastings tweeted this over the weekend saying the days of line watch operations are few and far between. last week's apprehensions stabbed at more than 21,000. as agents continue to do their best, #honor first. that is an admission that they transporting and processing illegally crossing migrants that the border patrol can no longer perform their fundamental duty of protecting our border. add to it that 900 percent increase in covid positive migrants detainees in that sector, now you have the border patrol union vice president that sector rgb chris cabrera a sundaying the alarm. >> we are releasing people out the door day in and day out with actual positive tests for covid and more just keep popping up. griff: this after the white house released immigration plan last week proposing congress make available $38 million on
4:11 am
legal services for migrants. with each attorney costing at least $2,000 based on a heritage foundation study roughly only 7500 migrants would be covered. now, i just corrected in guys with a source of mine in the rgv they tell me yesterday's apprehensions were 3002, a 655% increase from this time last year. i said look that up, how many migrants were apprehended in where we saw that drone footage over the weekend friday, saturday, sunday, it's 8144. pete, steve, ainsley? pete: staggering numbers, griff, we were told it was supposed to go down because of the summer heat and we have seen the opposite. griff: it has been consistently one of the slowest months, july, august, it's too dangerous for the too treacherous migrants to come through 100-degree heat and face all the challenges they have. it is doing anything but. in fact, they have not dropped below 8,000 in the number of detainees they are holding in
4:12 am
that sector. meaning, pete, that they can't process them fast enough in addition to the ones that are being caught and released. that is why we saw in recent days, the administration reverse their untoo long of the trump policy on expedited flights for migrants that cannot be excelled under title 42. steve: griff, thank you very much. pete: even that was a small number, unfortunately. steve: when you look at numbers of people under the overpass the reason they are under there it provides shade on a very hot texas day. you know, those people then will be processed and then the federal government will transport them somewhere in the united states at taxpayer expense. we have wondered where all this money is coming from that is, you know, handling this crisis on our southern border. and now we are hearing that the administration essentially is using a lot of covid money to answer some of these problems as well. in fact, down in texas, there is
4:13 am
a bipartisan push to provide $300 million in unused covid money to farmers for the damages they sustain on their property by the migrants who, you know, break through their fences, let their livestock loose and things like that. ainsley: that's exactly right. they say their fences are being broken by the migrants they have to quickly repair them so the livestock doesn't escape and walk out onto the interstate and disrupt the traffic. they say it's a daily struggle. representative tony gonzales says texans shouldn't have to be responsible for the losses of the biden border crisis. these farmers and ranchers need the money. use the code money to reimburse them. pete: okay. so as we see a lot of great covid protocols there. ainsley: yeah, right. steve: it's outdoors. pete: at the same time. steve: lollapalooza. >> asking for covid to walk across our border with that
4:14 am
paying money to not build the border wall. and paying people to fix the fences because they won't solve the problem at the border. i believe we had representative august pfluger as well as a couple of ranchers from texas on the program earlier. take a listen to what they had to say. >> these folks that are giving me a call are saying, look, we have got houses that are being broken into, barnes that are being damaged, and some cases there were trucks that were being stolen, fences being cut. livestock runs the risk of getting out. >> it is a threat simply because of the trash and stuff that the people leave behind them that these cattle ingest and once they ease them, they can't digest them. >> we need a president who actually enforces the law on the books. sad day in american history we have to force our president to act and enforce the laws on the books. steve: that last fellow is the county attorney for kenny county down in texas. he was telling us that he personally is leak a lot of
4:15 am
people in his neck of the woods where they have to hire security to keep them safe. i have said do you feel safe going out at night? he said i don't feel safe going out during the day. and he told one of our producers yesterday don't feel safe going out during the day unarmed. so you have got to be packing heat. pete: other side of that process are mexican cartels who control that we are facilitating it now with the government paying to push illegals all across the country in the middle of the night. ainsley: it's thought rancher's responsibility not only to hire their own security but also fix their own property. because of what this administration is doing. steve: because, what we heard from him was, and you dumped on this a minute ago, ainsley, and that is if the migrants rip a hole in their fence and they're raising cattle and one of the cows goes out on the road in the middle of the night and a car hits it, they are going to sue the migrant? no, the guy who own as the cow is on the hook for the damage to
4:16 am
the car. and if somebody gets killed, oh my goodness. ainsley: let's talk about what's happening in washington state. they have a major homeless problem there. and there is a little girl. she is 7 years old. her name is elsa. she has been setting up this lemonade stand on a park property. rutger hill park. pete: for years. since. ainsley: since she was 4 years old. pretty famous out there. the mayor goes and buys a cup of lemonade for a dollar. she got excited because she sees this car pull up. she thinks this is a customer it turns out this is a park ranger that said we are shutting you down even though you are raising money for gospel mission there. everett gospel mission. raising known help the homeless problem. steve: well, ainsley, they had to shut her down because one of the neighbors complained said that little 7-year-old kid is selling stuff without lance. you can't do it on the state property. ainsley: that's a cheerful, wonderful neighbor. pete: here is the kicker. that park is full of homeless people sleeping there and
4:17 am
shouldn't be. steve: pete, there are so many people complaining about the homeless people sleeping there. it's like wait a minute, one person complained about the little girl who is selling lemonade. we have all complained about the homeless people and nobody is doing anything about it. ainsley: where are your priorities, people? steve: there is one other delicious irony here. when i think kingtv out in seattle was doing the story talking to the family, yeah, this naked homeless guy walks behind the family and grandma goes come on, let's go. pete: unbelievable. here is the grandmother, her mother is sherri la main the little girl's grandmother says we have people come through here swinging weapons. something is wrong to this picture. need a better response to what is dangerous. leave the little kids alone for heaven's sake. let them have their lemonade stand. homeless people stay. ainsley: it is crazy. steve: between that and they're getting rid of bacon, what the
4:18 am
heck is happening? >> bacon! pete: i think we have the picture. there are still some lemonade stands allowed on the east cossments. steve: really. ainsley: you did. that's right. pete: there were the advertisers up the street. and customers, wonderful people, had to teach the kids how to greet adults properly, customer service, and because of inflation it was $2. steve: i know probably because of covid, the glasses are kind of metered out a little bit. pete: no, poor organization. they did a great job. ainsley: really. could you how much money did they raise? pete: a lot. they are giving half to charity. half to charity and divided really we did all of this for $17? steve: that's like my daughter when she first went to work she comes home two weeks later she gets the first check and she said dad, do you know how much they take out in taxes? yes, i do. ainsley: and then she became a
4:19 am
republican. '. steve: she is too young to be political. ainsley: hearing all these young people democrats get that first paycheck and they see how much money is taken out and you change your ways. steve: it's a lot. hats off to the heg set kids. pete: they didn't get shut down this time. steve: carley, they are down the shore. your family is in jersey. can you ever have a lemonade stand? carley: i did. we should have that little girl outside fox square to sell lemonade. steve: de blasio would shoved shut her down. ainsley: would new york shut her down? carley: not on our watch. we also have to goat headlines here as crime is surging across the country. manhunt underway for two gunman who opened fire on a crowded new york street. the mass shooter fired at a group of people standing outside a queens laundromat. police say 10 people were shot. three of those were the intended target. the rest were innocent bystanders. >> there was, as i can most

paycheck from the federal government. the 3.5 trillion. with you, when you look at the 1 trillion that's being considered right now, there is so much to it, you know, you wonder what -- it looks like they are going to spend 21 billion on environmental remediation, whatever that is. they want to spend a billion dollars on reconnecting communities. i don't know what that means either. do you feel, congressman, confident that this money will be well-spent? [laughter] >> is that a joke? absolutely not. i'm not confident that money is going to be well-spent. tell me a time washington ever spent something well. just last week tried to vote onn the they couldn't spend the money effectively and get it to people. if the government can't spend 40 billion how is it going to a trillion. still trillions of dollars unspent from the coronavirus

5:04 am
this story with that leaked photo you're seeing on your screen there, a large group under that very same bridge. now, for perspective, more than four months later, they have been getting slammed every single day. in the last 24 hours, in the rg v, a source tells us, they've had 3,002 encounters an increase of 655% compared to last year. add up the entire weekend total friday, saturday, sunday, 8,144 migrants, illegally crossed. now, over the weekend, the chief in that rgv sector, brian hast ings also tweeted this saying the days of line- watch operations are few and far between. last week, apprehensions stand at more than 21,000 as agents continue to do their best, # honorfirst. it's a stunning tweet, guys because it's an admission that they are so overwhelmed with transporting and processing migrants they can barely fully execute their fundamental duty which is protecting our border.
5:05 am
add to this that 900% increase in covid-positive migrants we're seeing in the rgv, and you've got the border patrol union vice president in that sector, chris cabrera sounding the alarm. listen. >> we're releasing people out the door day in, day out, with actual positive tests for covid and more just keep popping up. griff: this after the white house released their immigration plan last week which proposes congress make available $38 million on legal services for migrants but with each attorney costing at least $2,000 based on a heritage foundation study roughly only 7,500 migrants would be covered. so, let's do a little bit of math. i just told you over the weekend more than 8,000 migrants in the whole plan, well it covers 7,500, well that would barely cover one weekend in the rio grande valley. pete, steve, ainsley? steve: so griff, if those are the numbers the government is
5:06 am
releasing, is there some feeling that if that's the number they are given there's probably a larger number they aren't telling us about. griff: well, the number, steve, that matters, every single border patrol agent will tell you is with this massive numbers that we know of that are surrendering under the bridge as you look at here we don't know the got-away. that matters because that unknown number could match what we're seeing under that bridge, so if you had 1,000 people we didn't know about coming into the country who wanted to evade being apprehended for whatever reason, you got a problem and now we do know at least among those that were caught more than 7,800 migrants this fiscal year were criminal migrants meaning they were convicted of a crime in the united states in a prior time. steve: great point, griff thank you very much and speaking of the got-aways, how many of people, you know, they weren't screened by anybody, walking right in, with covid.
5:07 am
pete: exactly, and if you don't have more personnel, or more emphasis which of course we don't have under joe biden, then we saw in one of those tweets the line watch, the people actually on the border preventing those got- aways. they're busy under the overpass, with under the bridge, with potentially covid-infected illegals there so there's less people manning the border as more illegals surrender. it is an absolute crisis and we were told this summer it was supposed to go down because of the hot weather and instead it has gone up, everything this administration has done has facilitated it. ainsley: kind of does make sense because it's warm outside they can travel. it's not cold conditions. pete: it's so hot usually in those places, that it dips down. steve: that's why they come in the winter. pete: well now they are coming in summer because the borders wide open. ainsley: all these ranchers we've interviewed so many in texas and they are saying they come on to their property, cutting holes in their fences, worried about livestock getting
5:08 am
out, one rancher said he has to constantly monitor it 24/7 because they doesn't want his cattle to get out and walk into the streator escape and then he loses money there as well so you have one congressman in there leading thes" actually, bipartisan to spend that covid relief money, $300 million of it to fix things like this , the fences on these rancher's property. steve: because it's dangerous. one of the fellows we talked to, brent smith, is a texas rancher and he sustained $65,000 worth of damage to his property which is, you know, not reimbursed by companies or anything like that he says he is afraid to go out on his property unarmed during the night and even during the day. nonetheless here is representative august fluger, one of the people behind this bipartisan $300 million bill, and lynn allen, another one of ranchers earlier right here on the channel. >> these folks that are giving
5:09 am
me a call are saying look, we've got houses that are being broken into, barns that are being damaged and in some cases there were trucks being stolen, fences are being cut, livestock have run the risk of getting out. >> it is a threat simply because of the trash and stuff that the people leave behind them, that these cattle ingest, and once they eat them, they can't digest them. we just need a president to actually enforce the law on the books and it's a sad day in american history where we force our president to act and enforce the laws on the books. steve: keep in mind, for every one of those cows that gets loose, if they get hit by a car, you know, the owner of the cow is responsible, even though the migrant cut the hole in the fence, and if that cow is lost forever, or goes to somebody else's property, that rancher is out a couple hundred bucks. ainsley: it's just not an american message saying we don't care about ya' all, we

care about people not american citizens coming over, we'll protect them but not you and that's why you've got lawmakers saying hold on a minute, we do care about our ranchers who feel completely abandoned we've interviewed them and that's one of the words one of the ranchers said during an interview. pete: you have the same feeling when it comes to covid. look at the underpass. how many protocols are being followed and how much screening is being done. steve: but it's outdoors. pete: okay but you're cramming people together putting them on buses, putting them in hotels lose total accountability. ainsley: paying for their lawyer s. pete: maybe there's testing who knows. meanwhile, folks like dr. fauci are hitting the sunday shows saying you, even if you're vaccinated, need to be wearing a mask, because if you don't, you're infringing on other people's rights. here is dr. fauci yesterday. >> i don't think we're going to see lockdowns. i think we have enough of the percentage of people in the country, not enough to crush
5:11 am
the outbreak but i believe enough to not allow us to get into the situation we were in last winter, but things are going to get worse. a person's individual, individual decision to not wear a mask, not only impacts them because if they get infected even though they say it's my decision, if i get infected i'll worry about that, but the fact is if you get infected, even if you are without symptoms, you very well may infect another person who maybe vulnerable, who may get seriously ill, so in essence, you are approaching on their individual rights because you're making them vulnerable. steve: and people are so frustrated, because the administration flip flopped. they said if we got the shots we would not have to wear the mask but now the president flip flopped and he came out and said well things changed. the science changed. actually, on tuesday, when they
5:12 am
announced okay, everybody has to wear a mask, it wasn't based on science that they told us about. it was just some incidents including something that happened up in provincetown, massachusetts over the 4th of july. a lot of people who have been vaccinated got sick, and so it's because of the super contagious nature of this new delta variant ultimately what the experts say is if you've have the vaccine, you have a lot of protection. pete: yes. steve: it's not foolproof, but you're up in the 90s so if you haven't had it, get the shot you'll be protected but you got dr. fauci saying everybody has got to wear the mask, and what he's not saying is it's to protect the unvaccinated people. protect yourself. get the shot. pete: the study you're talking about though talks about case load, so it is the delta variant is very contagious, but when you actually dig down into the number of hospitalizations and deaths of vaccinated people, it's tiny in that particular case that they cited.
5:13 am
it was a very very low number and so it's a classic left wing argument the same thing with the reason why you have to wear a motorcycle helmet. why can't i make the choice for myself? because down the line because of healthcare costs and other things you should wear a helmet because of other people, as opposed to trusting people enough to make their own choice. ainsley: and nationally if you look at the people who are hospitalized, 97% of them are people that were not vaccinated. pete: that's right. ainsley: numbers have gone up because of how contagious this delta variant is. a month ago daily cases were under 10,000 and on thursday 80,000 new covid cases. steve: these are the latest numbers according to the wall street journal. with the vaccines, you get the shot, 88% protection against getting sick with symptoms. 96% effective against hospitalizations, and deaths, and that ultimately is what prompted so many people in the initial wave to get the shot it's like get the shot you won't die. i will say this. i was at walgreens picking up a
5:14 am
prescription on saturday and i have never seen one person getting a covid shot there until saturday. there were four people lined up so do you know what? i think the administrations messaging, which was terrible last week, freaked a lot of people out and now they are getting the shot. ainsley: yup. pete: we'll see. well speaking of again covid and rules that they want to impose on the rest of us. steve: and bad messaging. pete: and bad messaging let's bring in washington d.c. and the mayor there bowser, who put out over the weekend on friday, d.c. needs to mask up because of the cdc and the delta variant. ainsley: even if vaccinated. if you're over two years old. pete: exactly right. she not own only held a party for herself for her birthday before that requirement kicked in but that photo there, i'm confusing everybody, this one is from her birthday party but the one we just showed before that was at a wedding on saturday after the rules went
5:15 am
into effect where she was presided over the wedding which was outdoors and then the reception afterwards in that photo was indoors, and steve as you pointed out, if you're eating you don't have to wear a mask but she doesn't appear to be eating. steve: nobody at that table appears to be eating. here is the , we already know about some mask mandate hypocrisy that hasn't even happened yet and there's the picture nobody is eating in that. barack obama, this week, is celebrating his 60th birthday and coming up next weekend at martha's vindicated yard at his $12 million house he's invited 500 guests including george clooney, steven spielburg, oprah winfrey, they are all coming. they are required to have had the vaccine and they'll be tested, but it was just yesterday, the director of the nih said big parties should be avoided. so they already know they are going to take a lot of heat for having this gigantic lavish party and so they've apparently, they are going to have a covid
5:16 am
coordinator on hand to make sure everybody has it but nonetheless , it's another one of those things where, you know, you've got this very famous family going to flaunt the rules even though the commonwealth of massachusetts, the governor said he recommended that vaxed people wear masks when they are around, in that state, but also, don't have a big party. and they are going to do both. ainsley: we as you know, we're not here to debate whether or not she should or shouldn't wear a mask. the point is she's telling us we have to wear a mask if you live in that area in d.c. which is just like what gavin newsom did. pete: nancy pelosi. ainsley: nancy pelosi with the hair salon thing, gretchen whitmer and her husband trying to get the vote out when nobody else was allowed to we keep see ing this over and over and it's such a double standard, rules for they and not for me that is the problem. pete: indeed and i don't think people will take it. barack obama is a great example. he's saying i'm going about my
5:17 am
life. you may give me this guidance, i can make decisions for myself which is really all anyone asks for is make things optional. give us the choice. we have the information. get the shot, don't get the shot wear a mask don't wear a mask make your personal choice based on good information. ainsley: don't tell me to get vaccinated and then take off the mask and then tell me because i'm vaccinated now i have to wear the mask again. steve: but the science says, and we said if you had the vaccine, you are almost 100% protected. pete: but what they never talk about, steve -- steve: everybody at that party will be vaccinated. pete: they never talk about natural immunity either. it's a real thing if you've had covid, you talk to doctors that in some people believe it's even more robust than the vaccine. why is that never talked about at all? steve: my feeling is they don't want to talk about that because that would mean people would say i've had covid or i thought i had covid so i'm not going to get the vaccine. they want everybody to get the vaccine. if you were watching the press conference from the podium in the white house on friday, every answer to every question was, we
5:18 am
want everybody to get the vaccine. so ultimately that's the track they are going down at this point, after a very bad week of bad messaging from the white house, nih. pete: it's about people ignoring it. ainsley: schools starting next week, two weeks and throughout the country schools will be opening up through september. pete: now the teacher's unions are saying oh, maybe we'll try to open up and they are going to mask our kids back up again. forget about that. steve: but it's up to your local school board to decide. pete: let's hope so. ainsley: carlie has headlines for us. reporter: good morning, guys we'll start your headlines with the biden administration offer ing a new lifeline for afghans who help the u.s. military. the state department offering refugee status to afghans who do not qualify for the special immigration visa program. president biden has faced pressure to help at-risk citizens from the taliban amid the u.s. troop withdrawal. >> thousands are under evacuation orders in northern california, as the dixie fire

ainsley: two university of massachusetts students are challenging their school's covid vaccination requirements with a federal lawsuit. the students say they are required to be fully vaccinated to return back to campus violate their constitutional rights. joining us to explain, u-mass junior hunter harris along with his attorney ryan mcclean. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. ainsley: so, hunter, i know you're suing because you want to return to the classroom, but you don't want to get the vaccine, so, tell us what are your
5:26 am
options? will you be able to zoom or do you have to apply to a new school? >> well, i most likely will be able to have online classes but i feel discriminated against in that i won't be able to experience college the way everybody else will while they have the vaccine. ainsley: so ryan does he have a good case here? what if you have a religious problem with taking the vaccine or a pregnant woman and you want to wait until your baby is born? >> well in terms of the policies it really doesn't specify other than medical and religious and some disability exemptions to the vaccine. there really wasn't anything specific to pregnancy. do i believe it's an unlawful policy? i do, but i couldn't speculate as to what the judge and the federal court will do but i do believe there's strong claims and in terms of religious exemptions, massachusetts as a matter of law allows for
5:27 am
religious exemptions to these vaccines if you do hold a sincerely held religious belief against it. ainsley: hunter what's your reason for not wanting to get the vaccine? >> well i simply, at this time, i'm going to first say, that i am not an anti-vaxer, i never have been and i never will be, before anything goes out of the way for that, but my reason why i'm not taking it or i'm hesitant is because there's a lack of transparency at the moment that the information is never consistent with our government and the science, the cdc, the w. h. o., the white house, they all give different answers to the same question. it just the specific vaccination has not been around long enough for me to feel comfortable taking it yet, and i don't feel that i should be subject to these draconian policies that the school is mandating which is unprecedented and i don't think they have the authority to do so ainsley: and we don't have full approval from the fda yet.
5:28 am
ryan, in some schools, i know they require kids to have a flu. i know that happened a lot in the schools here in new york, and they just don't want other kids to get the flu they want everyone vaccinated to send our kids to school. do they have a valid argument with that because couldn't they say the same thing about this vaccine? >> right. so you know the flu vaccine is actually approved the fda and it's actually fairly benign when you look at it and sort of i should make a point, hunter and cora hads are not the only two involved. i was hired by the family freedom endeavor group that is fighting for college students with this mandate and fighting for parents and families. i've dealt with hundreds of students just in my area and i know there are other groups as well, but as for this safety of others, i do understand generally, these vaccines are mandated by the individual state 's public health department , its not been
5:29 am
mandated by massachusetts. public health, i'm unaware of any state that's mandated this no governor has mandated in any sort of emergency powers that these vaccines be mandated for the citizens, so i do believe it's outside of what the schools authority is to do, and we're now actually seeing studies and even in massachusetts there's a cape cod study 74% of the people hospitalized were vaccinated, so we don't even know what the efficacy of these vaccines. ainsley: hunter have you thought about applying to another school >> i have but i really don't want to. i want to go back to what i had. i really do. ainsley: right. guys thank you so much for fighting, standing up for what you believe in, and for coming on. >> thank you very much. ainsley: thank you. we did reach out to the university of massachusetts for a statement and we did not hear back. coming up, after facing coast to coast pressure from progressives and activists house speaker nancy pelosi is now calling on the white house to extend the federal ban on evictions. newt gingrich says this type of government handout is a recipe

5:35 am
at her own party for letting it happen. >> the house and house leadership had the opportunity to vote to extend the moratorium , and there were many, frankly a handful of conservative democrats in the house that threatened to get on planes rather than hold this vote. pete: now, house speaker nancy pelosi is demanding joe biden act, saying, "action is needed and it must come from the administration" that's why house leadership is calling on the administration to immediately extend the moratorium. fox news contributor and our friend speaker newt gingrich is here to react. i can't say words today, mr. speaker, i'm not sure why, but we're glad you're here to cleanup the mess for me. what do you make of this mess on the democrat side of the aisle? their socialist members want this moratorium extended, speaker is saying she doesn't have the votes. >> well look, i think, start with there's no amount of money that left wing anti-americans
5:36 am
wouldn't spend. there's no amount of money you could give people that they think is too much and if you were to ask aoc what's the most somebody should get , she couldn't possibly give you an answer. you ask her, whose going to pay for all of this? it's a fantasy, so we're in a situation right now where we're on the edge, i think, of significant inflation, because the governments spending far more than it's taking in. it is putting dramatic inflationary pressure on the economy, and every american will end up being poorer because of the policies of the left wing democrats. pete: so mr. speaker whether it's unemployment supplemental, whether it's extending the mortgage on evictions, it almost feels like things that changed under covid that were meant to be emergency measures folks like corey bush who you see on your screen right now, they want them to be permanent.
5:37 am
this effectively feels like the socialist have their moment to keep the gravy train going. >> you know, ronald regan used to say that he once thought that democrats spent like drunken sailors but he concluded that was smearing sailors, because democrats spent far far more than drunken sailors, and i think that we're just back to the old democratic party. they will give money away to everybody, they will give money away to them under any excuse. the idea they have a $3.5 trillion bill on top of a $1.5 trillion infrastructure on top of all of the emergency covid money, there is a point where the system starts to break down, at two very different levels. one nationally, the question of inflation and how do you handle the debt but the other is personal. what signal are we sending the people? don't go to work, don't pay your debts, don't pay rent, wait for aoc to bail you out. that's a very bad social signal

segway, but david horowitz has this theory and it explains why the democrats have essentially become pro-crime. he calls it the democrats are the anti-communist. people wonder all the time, why is it democrats will support iran if they throw people who are gay off buildings? how is it democrats are pro- crime and it's because you have communists and that's largely become the radical left and then us, we're the anti- communist, and then the democrats who hiatus so much they become the anti anti- communist so if they are like hey we like law and order and they are like we're pro- crime. crime is great. we love it. i'm serious. you read horowitz's material and it explains the left, like how can they be so stupid? you think to yourself, right, you have smart people on this panel. it's not that they didn't know when they dump broken windows policing there was going to be an explosion of crime. guys let's not pretend that no one here treats our audience
