xfinity xfi. so powerful, it keeps one-upping itself. can your internet do that? tbhurnl priority would be more discussion of what's tweal in the bill as opposed to this topline figure which itself is misleading of 3.5 trillion. it doesn't really represent anything it is just weird shorthand that's been used, in fact, billion itself will not cost 3.5 trillion in theceps that it will be entirely or
2:15 am
partly paid for. >> well washington post columnst you see down playing calling that 3.5 trillion dollar price tag misleading. joining us now with his reaction is fox news contradict tore joe concha what was misleading about that 3.5 trillion spending there? >> great question. [laughter] here's the deal. to use biden term, that's true it is not 3.5 trillion. it is misleading it is more leak 5.5 trillion, 6 trillion when you look at all of the gimmicks that are in there. in other words there are programs that are in place that are supposed to expire in two, three year an once you put a program in place once you give people something it is very hard to extract that from them. obamacare being an example right once the government gives you something then you can't say we're not going give it to you them. so to that -- that statement to be said on a show like reliable sources
2:16 am
ironically enough labeled is completely nice leading, because when you say well it is completely paid for. no one can exactly explain how that -- again this is trillions of dollars guys this is not billions but trillions a number that people can't get number around. how do you pay for it well we tax rich. you can tax rich all you want. you can't pay for 3.5, 5 trillion dollars just by taxing the rich alone. everybody pays for this and one way or another guys. >> joe president biden said earlier last twheek it is already paid for so he's -- banking on the media echoing that, and he really needs this win. he needs the human infrastructure and the infrastructure plan to pass because then he can campaign off of it. if he doesn't get this win, so to speak, but passes something he shows he gets they thinks done then yes i guess yuck say i'm making your life better in
2:17 am
one way or another to the american people if it fails and thr a very good chance that it could then you're looking at a biden presidency that's over because progressives will turn on them because thepght that human infrastructure part absolutely in this. and also you have moderate republicans who voted for actual infrastructure part which roads and bridges an power grids and so on so if you don't pack this then everybody is mad at the biden here's administration, and the 2022 med terms enalready are basically passing the torch to the republicans in terms of the house and senate. then joe biden has absolutely nothing to run on then you look at other they thinks they thinks going on in the world it is a complete mess. jimmy carter would beg for this administration opposed to what joe biden has offered at this point. >> when you talk about the border and this, covid cover biden issued new policies to distract from multiple crises

i would say, deplorable, unacceptable. we are having to use essentially veterans, folks that have -- were previously in the military and anything like the signal app. or the what's app. to get vudz to coordinate their release to get them out of afghanistan. carley: it's tragic i can't believe it's always been a month these people, especially the afghan interpreters, they were helping the united states and we just left them high and dry and now the taliban is saying that they are going back to their old ways of executions and amputations. they are openly admitting that. so, what are afghans saying who are currently living under taliban rule? what are they saying to you about what their life is like right now? >> well, they are scared. they are scared, carley. because they are just waiting for that proverbial knock on the door when they get taken out. and a family member executed. we saw this past weekend just a couple days ago how the taliban were hanging four bodies up on cranes to give a lesson to
2:48 am
everybody. it is a horrifying experience. you know, you read back in the old books of what beginning gus chan and what some of the other folks did that's happening in present day afghanistan. you live in fear all the time of being selected out and either being executed or, as you pointed out, named in one regard or the other. it's a terrifying experience. and what we're see something we went into that country and we had people that were sympathetic with the cause of freedom of what americans stand up for. and now those individuals are being hunted down and we gave the afghans their names. we gave the folks. we gave the taliban their names. and so they have a list to go by to hunt down these individuals. and us leaving them behind in addition to obviously our americans behind is horrible. carley: i'm sure i speak for many americans, you know, in thanking you and your office for doing this we cannot forget these people despite the fact that time is passing. their lives are still very much in jeopardy because of taliban
2:49 am
rule. got to get to this because congress is busier than ever this week trying to pass the infrastructure plan and then the $3.5 trillion human infrastructure bill. nancy pelosi wants to do both. she called there a time of intensity. we got about 30, 45 seconds left. do you think both of these things will pass this week? >> well, it's very interesting because the moderate democrats, those who actually have an understanding of what this massive inflationary project will be and then the progressive democrats simply, in my opinion don't understand math are battling out. and pelosi has said she would not bring something to the floor without the votes. she won't have any republican votes because this is essentially giving away the future of this country. you know, they have defined infrastructure as anything they want to do in their democratic wish list it will be very interesting to see if they have any defections this week. carley: all right. congressman greg murphy, we will be watching. thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much, carley.
2:50 am
have great day. carley: you bet. you as well. time now for the good, bad and the ugly. first the good the powerful portraits are a tribute to the 13 service members who made the ultimate sacrifice in afghanistan. they were sent to us by proud american graham a grandmother from new jersey who hoped to give them to their loved ones. we asked tine what inspired her work? she said she's sketches were a way to show support and connect with the gold star families. god bless her. ashley: a be propane tank explodes at the texas motor speedway. watcher.

. ashley: mayorkas admitting that' number of will crossed over the border have already been released into the u.s. carley: ken paxton filed a lawsuit against the biden
2:56 am
administration for not obeying the remain in mexico policy. he joins us now. i thought the supreme court ruled the biden administration would have to reinstate remain in mexico. what's the hold up? >> good morning. you are exactly right about. a month ago had a great ruling they had to reinstate the stay in mexico program to stop people from coming in the country and disappearing as they waited for their hearing for years. we filed another lawsuit asking the court to give some type of deadline and allow us to do some discovery so we know exactly what is happening in country as opposed now to all of us are in the dark. ashley: i want to get to this. this the haitian migrants processing status. it says 12,400 have -- cases heard by immigration judges. 5,000 being processed by dhs and 3,000 are in detention. my biggest question of this story that we are talking about in particular, you know, the migrants that were released into the u.s., they were given a notice. they have to show up for court.
2:57 am
how can would he be certain that they are going to show up to court and that this process can continue from auto legality standpoint? are. >> you know, you ask a very good question i don't think we know the answer. to say i think a lot of these people do not show up. that's been the process. that's what president trump was trying to stop. we have a history for decades of people coming, in claiming asylum when they really don't deserve it disappearing into the country and never showing up for their hearing. that's the problem. that's what trump was trying to stop he did stop. and now the biden administration has moved that policy away in violation of federal law. and we're trying to stop them from doing that. ashley: and to follow up on that has the biden administration said anything as a remedy for this or what they plan to do? is there a number they expect for people to show up? this is concerning. they just let these people, these migrants across the border and just trust that they're going to do the right thing. >> yeah. i think this is very personal. they have been doing this from the beginning. they vin varietied as many
2:58 am
people in as could come. and then they allow them to come in and they disappear into the country. this is completely in violation of federal policy. exactly why we sued and why the court said we were right. i think they will say it again. the biden administration just continues to ignore the law and continues to ignore court directives. ashley: a.g. paxton what about border patrol on horseback. they are under investigation. president biden says they are going to pay. they are going to pay for what they did. did they lose their jobs? >> you know what? i feel very bad for them because i think they are trying to do their best with no help from the administration. with no support. and the reality is they are just doing their job. i do not think that these border agents are acting in the wrong way. i think they are doing their jobs under very difficult circumstances. ashley: and we have heard this soundbite from mayorkas 1,000 times i feel like since it happened. but, in it he said our borders are not open and people should not make a dangerous journey. obviously people are not listening to this. what is the state of texas doing
2:59 am
or what can you do to try and prevent people from coming across the border illegally? >> well, what he said it couldn't be more false. i think we all know from the day that the biden administration came into office they basically said come and we won't deport you. so you can see the numbers have gone up over 300 percent in a year. so this is purposeful. and this idea that they are trying to stop illegal immigration is just false. we are trying to do our best by suing the biden administration. the governor has tried to send some of these people back, we have been sued under that. we are trying to do our best. at the same time, we feel like the federal government is working against us. >> sir, the bottom line this morning alejandro mayorkas was on with chris wallace yesterday. he said they're negotiating with mexico to try to figure out a way to remain in mexico. it sounds like we have got about 15 second left you think the administration is dragging their feet. >> yeah. that's exactly. why can't they just start the program, stay in mexico program started very quickly trump.
3:00 am
they can do the same thing. they are stalling. they don't want to stop it. all right, texas attorney general ken paxton thanks for joining us this morning. we appreciate it. ashley: have a good day. >> thank you, have a good day. carley: it was already a busy monday. a busy week in congress and the border. so many stories to get to but right now "fox & friends" starts. ♪ ♪ 17,000 that weren't deported how many have been released into the u.s. >> i think 12,000 it could be even higher. >> secretary mayorkas and president biden they are in dereliction of duty. >> the shutdown show down is on. >> speaker pelosi eyes to vote on a massive spending plan. >> it is going to change our lives. may destroy our jobs and lifestyle. >> a memorial service for gabby petino as family and friends remember the 22-year-old. >> you are going to leave here today. i'm asking that you guys be inspired by the way she treated
