tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  October 13, 2021 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT

12:00 pm
shelves faster. i am joined by the executive director of the ports of los angeles and long beach. gene and mario. i apologize. the president of the international longshoreman's union, willie adams bring los angeles and long beach are home to the two of the largest ports in america and together these ports are among the largest in the world. best way to make that point is that 40% of shipping containers that we important to this country come through these two parts. today we have some good news to help speed up the delivery of goods all across america. after weeks of negotiation working with my team and with the major union retailers and freight movers, the ports of
12:01 pm
los angeles, the port of los angeles announced today that it's going to be given operating 24 hours a day seven days a week. this follows the port of long beach's commitment to 24/77 that it announced weeks ago. 24/7 system, what most of the leading countries of the world operate on except us until now. it's a key step toward moving our entire freight transportation and logistical supply chain nationwide to a 24/7 system. here's why it matters. traditionally our ports have only been open during the week monday through friday. they are generally close down at night and on weekends. by staying open seven days a week through the night and on weekends, the port of los angeles will open over 60 extra hours a week. in total, that will almost double the number of hours the port is open for business from
12:02 pm
earlier this year. that means an increase in the hours for workers to be moving cargo off ships onto trucks and railcars to get to their destination. more than that, the night hours are critical for increasing the movement of goods because highways, highways are less crowded at night. in fact, during off-peak hours in los angeles, cargo leaves the port at a 25% faster pace than during the day shift. so by increasing the number of late-night hours of operation and opening up for less crowded hours when the goods can move faster, today's announcement has the potential to be a game changer. i say potential. because all of these goods won't move by themselves. for the positive impact to be felt all across the country and by all of you at home, we need major retailers who order the goods and the freight movers who
12:03 pm
take the goods from the ships to factories and stores the step up as well. provide these private-sector companies, the ones that higher trucks and railcars and move the goods. on this score, we have some good news to report as well. today walmart, our nation's largest retailer, is committing to go all in on moving this product 24/7 from the ports to their stores nationwide. specifically walmart as much as a 50% increase in the use of off-peak hours over the next several weeks. additionally fedex and ups, two of our nation's biggest freight movers, are committing today to significantly increase the amount of goods they are moving at night. fedex and ups are the shippers for some of our nation's largest stores and they also ship for tens of thousands of small businesses. their commitment to go all in on
12:04 pm
24/7 operations means that businesses of all sizes will get their goods on shelves faster and more reliably. accordingly, according to one estimate, together fedex and ups alone move up to 40% of packages in america. up to 40%. other companies are stepping up as well. target, home depot, samsung. they have all committed to ramp up their activities and utilize off-peak hours at the ports so the commitment is being made today, a sign of major progress moving goods from manufacturers to a store or your front door. i want to thank my supply chain task force which we set up in june led by the secretaries. and the director of the national economic council. i want to thank them for their leadership.
12:05 pm
joe, i think joe has done one heck of a job, my special envoy on ports, working this issue with all the stakeholders for the past several weeks. i also want to thank you to coat port directors. in the mayors of los angeles and long beach for their long beach. their leadership. private company stepping up. i want to thank labor. willie adams of the longshoreman union, the teamsters, rail unions from the brotherhood of railroad signalmen. the association of machinists. sheet metal, air and rail, transportation workers union, known as smart. i want to be clear, it's an across-the-board commitment going to 24/7.
12:06 pm
it's a big first step in speeding up the movement of materials and goods through our supply chain. now we need the rest of the private sector to step up as well. this is not called a supply chain for nothing. this means terminal operators, railways, trucking companies, shippers and other retailers. strengthening our supply chain will continue to be my team's focus. a federal support is needed, i will direct all appropriate action. if the private sector doesn't step up, we are going to call them out to act. our goal is not only get through the immediate bottleneck but addressed the long-standing weaknesses on the transportation supply chain the pandemic has exposed. one of the reasons i think it's very important that we get the infrastructure plan past. my infrastructure plan. supply chain system is a most entirely in the hands of private
12:07 pm
business. the world has changed. prior to the crisis, the focus on lean, efficient supply chains. no buffer or margin for error when it comes to certain parts of having just-in-time. needing to make final product. our administration, just in time was the focus. we didn't have a pandemic and other things, brock and i. barack and i. we needed a broader view. the kind of shocks we have seen, whether it's the pandemic, extreme weather, climate change, cyberattacks and other disruptions. in fact, research tells us that a company can expect to lose over 40% of one year's earnings every ten years through supply chain disruptions.
12:08 pm
a longer-term view means we invest in systems that have more time built in and our ability to produce, innovate and partner with our allies. it also means companies throughout the supply chain like maritime, air freight, trucking companies reduce their carbon emissions and help meet our climate change goals. it also means creating and supporting good paying jobs. so folks want to build the skills and careers and make a decent living. more opportunities to join a union, especially for truckers. these steps are critical. they allow companies to pivot quickly when a disruption hits because they've invested in their workers, their workers' skills, and training up front to be able to adapt. we need to invest in making more of our products right here in the united states. never again should our country and our economy began able to make critical products that we need because we don't have
12:09 pm
access to materials to make that product. never again should we have to rely too heavily on one company or one country or one person in the world, particularly when countries don't share our values when it comes to labor and environmental standards. i have said before we are in competition for the 21st century. we are america. we still have the most productive workers and most innovative minds in the world, with the rest of the world is closing in and we risk losing our edge if we don't step up. in order to be globally competitive, we need to improve our capacity to make things here in america while also moving finished products across the country and around the world. we need to think big and bold. that's why i'm pushing for a once in a generation investment in our infrastructure and our people. my build back better act. these bills would transform our
12:10 pm
ports. billions of dollars for ports. highways, rail systems, sorely needed upgrades that would bring products faster and more efficiently the factory to the store to your house. let me be clear. we are proposing to make the biggest investment in ports in history. the bill would also make investments in our supply chains and manufacturing and strengthening our ability to make more goods from beginning to end right here in america. the bottom line, we have seen the cost of inaction in the pandemic, delays, congestion that affect every american. it's fully within our capacity to act to make sure it never happens again. it's going to take a little time. that we unlock the full might and dynamism of our economy and our people. that's what we are going to do. god bless you all and may god bless the longshoreman, rail
12:11 pm
workers, truckers and everyone keeping the economy going. may god protect our troops. thank you all so very much. >> reporter: lower gasoline prices. >> john: pausing to see if president biden would ask questions, h did not. the president addressing growing supply chain issues. shelves empty across the u.s. just-in-time for the holidays. with the president said is not really going to relieve any of the problems right now happening at the long beach and los angeles ports of entry. if we can show a shot, the problem is you've got 60 ships that are off the coast. waiting to be unloaded. you cannot load any -- unload any of those ships unless you get what's currently on the docks on trucks out of there. there is simply no room to put anything else. that's the problem. the president talks about ups
12:12 pm
and fedex. ups and fedex are not picking up from the los angeles and long beach ports of entry. walmart is. that would alleviate a little bit of this. the big problem of course is the truckers and the trains that take the step to market and there are not enough truckers or employees to be able to park this stuff away. let's bring in the white house roundtable. jeff freeman. he is the ceo of consumer brands association. jeff, i want to ask you, the president has said he has been working on this for months and months and yet the problem has never been worse. what is the solution? >> we've been in discussions with the national economic council. we appreciate the focus from the administration and i agree, the private sector is doing all it can to address the issues. we have a labor shortage in the country. we have too few workers, too few people driving the trucks and too few people in other aspects of the industry. we have got to figure out how we
12:13 pm
infuse more labor into this workforce. many thought that the pullback on these various unappointed benefits would do that. it hasn't done it yet. we've got to ask ourselves, how do we get creative and incentivize people to drive these trucks? some of the funds through covid really. incentivize truck drivers. do we need to look at very targeted uses of the national guard? we have problems at various bottlenecks. do we need to look at temporary visas? these are the questions to be asking because this crisis, as you said, is not going to resolve itself. >> trace: the president talks about opening the ports 24/7. he wants truckers to work 24/7. the overnight shifts cost money. to get the longshoreman to the docks, it costs money. getting these things open 24/7 is only going to push these prices even higher. inflation goes up. it's also a concern among a lot of people in the retail sector.
12:14 pm
>> representing all aspects of the industry, our concern is around wednesday, thursday, friday. how do we keep the shelves stocked? on average we are looking at 7% out of stock on store shelves. right now it's about 15%, it's about double. consumer demand is up 9% year-over-year. we are focused on keeping the shelves stocked. we need help to do that. we need help from the administration. we need to look at where these bottlenecks are in order to do that. higher prices are coming. higher prices are in the market. what we can't have his empty shelves. that's where our number one focus is. >> trace: from bob, former home depot ceo and chrysler ceo. he said this and i want to get your reaction. >> doesn't solve the problem telling people to buy early for christmas or buy a chest freezer
12:15 pm
and stock up on meat and poultry. we are at tin tin cupping for oil when we were energy independent. natural gas is going to be short if we have a cold winter. it perpetuates the problems. >> trace: he makes a good point. the president was saying we need to make more goods in america so we can be self-sufficient. yet we were almost on the verge of being self-sufficient in the energy sector before all of these changes were made to go against what president trump put into play. he saying yes we need to be self-sufficient in certain areas and not when it comes to energy. >> to the white house's credit, i haven't heard many leaders talk about supply chain. it's an issue that was piped up during the covid crisis. we are glad to see an extended focus on supply chain. our country needs that focus. we welcome it and we are pleased to see it. on the other hand, we don't need
12:16 pm
to be encouraging people to buy now and created unnecessary panic. we need to resolve problems. the port issue running 24/7 is a step in the right direction. look at trucks. too few truckers. tens of thousands too few to get product to market. in the roundtable today with the white house, the leaders of the railroad industry talked about open capacity on the railroads. how do we move more product? we need more federal coordination. the federal government needs to be a partner in the supply chain in a way it hasn't before. let's hope today is a first step in that direction. >> trace: right now it's taking from asia to get shipping containers from asia to the united states, 80 days. double what it took about ten months ago. how much do you think that will change under this new plan by the president? >> the jury is out. the point is the system is resilient. the point is this system is doing everything it can but the system is strange. we think back to the early days
12:17 pm
of covid and the demand that was there. what i hear from our ceos is that the strain on the system is greater today than it has been at any point. the urgency to address it and put the plans in place, it needs to be done yesterday. we welcome it. it will help improve things or on the margins but it's a complicated situation and it's going to take a multitude of solutions and we are hopeful the white house, the broader administration, is going to be a partner with us. i will leave you with one thing. the infrastructure bill that has stalled on capitol hill is absolutely critical. if we want to get past problems like this, we've got to make these investments in our nation's infrastructure. what we are seeing today is the result of not seeing that for many years. >> trace: your critics saying you can upgrade the ports until you're blue in the face and it's not going to alleviate what's happening. great of you to give us your insight. we appreciate it. thank you. president biden honing in on a major choke point,
12:18 pm
southern california. dozens, 60 of these cargo ships are sitting off the coast waiting to be brought into dock to unload. they are holding billions of dollars of merchandise with nowhere to go. that's where we find william la jeunesse in long beach. >> trace, those 60 ships, that represents about 1 million containers. they're waiting for weeks off shore, waiting to get some dock space to unload their cargo. the three vessels here, it takes three to five days to turn those around, get the containers off, strip them, and then put on empty containers and go back to china which is roughly about a two to three week trip. the problem as we know, as you mention, it's basically they don't have the capacity to stack more. they are already three stories high waiting for the trucks and truckers to pick them up. so the president said they're
12:19 pm
going to add a third shift from 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. the longshoreman will be here working 24/7 and the truckers. the gates will open and they can take those containers off. the president says the efficiency has increased by about 25%. secondly, the major freight haulers, ups and fedex, they are going to utilize these hours as well as retailers walmart allegedly according to the president. 50% of their cargoes going to be moved in those off-peak hours. home depot, samsung. experts tell us it will help in the realignment of bringing u.s. ports to what the europeans and the asians are already doing, 24/7 schedule. >> when you consider the supply chain. the only way you're going to see efficiencies and fluidity across the system's of every segment of the supply chain realigns. we are taking the first step. the administration's
12:20 pm
announcement today is a major step for the supply chain and the transition to the future, 24/7 operation. >> the point is, which you've already kind of covered, unless the warehouse is -- unless they're willing to take the stuff at all hours and you have retailers being able to basically realign themselves with the hours these guys are going, what is happening is is you have to bring an empty container to get a full one and the truckers are saying that's not possible. there's a shortage of carriers. trying to get everyone on the same page, it isn't easy. the president saying he hopes this will be the spark, if you will, to make it happen. >> trace: one link in the supply chain breaks down and the whole thing breaks down. william la jeunesse live from long beach. the other big crisis confronting president biden, another month
12:21 pm
of inflation on the rise. it goes hand-in-hand. you've got inflation, goods, as prices for things like groceries, gasoline, vehicles, rent. all going on. what you need to know next. social >> i can't make a prediction for you. that we're going to solve every issue tomorrow or next week. we are not

12:25 pm
>> trace: have you noticed prices keep going up? they jumped in september. the biggest annual increase in 13 years. a federal reserve official predicts the price spikes may last longer than many federal officials originally expected. edward lawrence with more pain >> the fourth straight months that the cpi is above 5%. 5.4%. match that with the average hourly wages, going up over the past 12 months 4.6%. that gap means you might be making more about the cost of the stuff that you buy is going up more than the money you're making. the atlanta federal reserve president in the first federal reserve president is a inflation is not transitory. he says it will not be brief. the white house cannot guarantee when inflation will get under control. >> i would note that we have
12:26 pm
seen a decrease over the course of time and that still evident if you look month-to-month with the data that came out this morning. between the second quarter second quarter an end third quarter, monthly inflation increases have decelerated. >> people feel that the year-over-year increase, the backlog and ports in california plays an impact. the rising gas prices. the pandemic shutting down plants. the former home depot and chrysler ceo says he believe inflation will get worse from here. >> look at the situations. they are not getting better. you talked about the airlines. it's not getting better. we need to be aggressive. we have the capabilities, the willpower. somebody has to make a decision to fix the problems. >> federal reserve president says he -- federal reserve chairman says he sees the bottlenecks indication it's getting worse rather than
12:27 pm
better. we'll see what effect these actions from the white house have on it. >> trace: edward lawrence, live at the white house. thank you. let's bring in fox business anchor david. i'm sure you saw it the president said. he got a chance to give us a supply chain elixir and then he got a plug-in for his multitrillion dollar infrastructure bill. he says that's the fix. that's the remedy. listen to senator roger marshall this morning. >> people are not only mad. they are panicked about inflation. big spending and more borrowing is only going to add to inflation. what president biden is doing, the policies to make the labor shortage worse is only going to drive inflation up more. >> trace: do you think we can spend and borrow our way out? >> the congressman's right. it's like pouring gasoline on a fire, not water.
12:28 pm
inflation is a tax. let's start there. the president famously said he wasn't going to tax people making under 400,000. it's a tax on the people smack in the middle class and the poor as well and thus they have stuff paid for by the government. it's a tax we pay for government spending money they don't have. the way it works specifically is that the treasury issues this debt and the federal reserve has been buying about 60% of all the debt issued by the treasury. the way they pay for it, the bonds, the ious, by printing more money. that's why we have this huge, vast amount of cash. inflation is too much money chasing too few goods. we have too few goods because of the supply chain problems that we have been talking about and the labor shortage we have. we have too few goods, not making enough stuff and we have too much money because the fed has been printing money in order to pay for the debt. >> trace: in the old days, do
12:29 pm
you remember sonny bono? when he was a congressman, he would say. if sonny bono gets it, everybody gets it. he said i drive down the street and i see gas prices going up, i'm always angry at the guy who was in charge. somewhere somebody in charge is not doing the right thing. gas prices continue to go up and people viscerally get it because they see it on big billboards every day. >> i love the mamas and the papas. i loved sonny bono. i loved even more milton freeman who could explain inflation very well in ways that everybody could understand. if you have a lot of things, and individual price of each one of those things cost less. if you shrink the amount of things you have and we see it now again with this supply chain shortage. the reason, one of the reason prices are going up is because we have fewer things and
12:30 pm
therefore that makes the value on particular things worth more. you have some members of congress who have this crazy theory. modern monetary theory that a lot of the socialists have bought into in congress. people like aoc. since you can print as much money as you possibly want. it's not going to affect people's lives. that's how we can pay for things. that's nonsense. i used to cover emerging markets. latin america, eastern europe, stuff like that, i did it for "the wall street journal." every time we had politicians saying this that you could print money, whether it's hugo chavez or whomever. they would end up with hyperinflation. we have inflation now. it's bad enough that people's wages, as you mention, wage increases are being killed by inflation. if your a working american, saving less money because your cash is worthless. we could go to a worthless cash if we have hyperinflation. if you believe you can just print as many as you want
12:31 pm
without any consequences, that's where we are heading. that's very dangerous territory. >> trace: talk about worthless cash. social security has gotten a big boost, the biggest cost-of-living increase in 39 years. 5.9%. analysts for senior citizens league said "over the past 21 years, cost-of-living increases have raised social security benefits by 55% but housing costs rose nearly 118%. health care 145%." you think that you are getting a raise. you're actually getting a pay cut. >> if you're working american or somebody depending on social security to pay your bills, you're in trouble. you're in real trouble. the only thing that's going to solve this problem is for more productivity, getting more people into the workforce, making it easier for companies to do business and cheaper for companies to do business. this administration is going in the opposite direction. about to increase taxes, making
12:32 pm
it more expensive to produce everything. >> trace: david, always great to see you. thank you. let's not forget about the border crisis. fox obtaining leaked documents revealing how many illegal immigrants have been released into the united states under president biden's watch. next.

>> trace: no word from the white house on border control documents revealing the mass scale of migrants into the u.s. more than 160,000 illegal immigrants have crossed the and been allowed to stay in a span of about six months. bill melugin broke the story. he joins us from la joya, texas. good afternoon. >> traits, good afternoon. what these leaked federal documents provided to us show is that within the last two months,
12:37 pm
more than 70,000 illegal immigrants have been released into the united states by the biden administration. take a look. border patrol report the kind of gives a snapshot of what's going on across different border patrol sectors. here's what it shows. take a look. since august 6, the biden administration has released 31,977 illegal immigrants into the country on parole. that gives them temporary legal status and also allows them to apply for work permits. there are strict conditions. under federal law, it's on a case-by-case basis. for urgent humanitarian needs or significant public benefit. take a look at this video. former u.s. border patrol chief rodney scott. he tells us he has major concerns with the biden administration did about 32,000 of these payrolls into months. it's supposed to be specific
12:38 pm
criteria. he told us in part "i believe the administration is misusing parole authority. the sheer number of pearls being granted brings into question the review and approval process. i don't believe i have more than five to ten paroles in the year. when i did, i ensure that the alien was monitored continuously. and detained or removed as soon as circumstances allowed. which he said he did five to ten and you have the biden administration doing 32,000 paroles. i reached out to dhs for a response. they declined to provide a formal response. they referred us to cbp. those officials tell us "per rolling individuals from border patrol custody on a case-by-case basis and enrolling the heads of households of family units into alternative detention programs as well as conditioning parole on removal proceedings provides mechanisms to require family
12:39 pm
units released from cbp custody to report to i.c.e. within the specified time frame." the other thing that the documents showed, they have released more than 95,000 immigrants into the country. notice to report. please show up to an immigration office within 60 days. they have released about 40,000 illegal immigrants since august 6 on their own recognizance. one other thing. on one single day last month, september 28, the federal government release 128 legal immigrants into the country without any method of tracking them whatsoever. i asked the feds. they did not give me an answer. send it back to you. >> trace: people hear about this and that's why they come north. bill melugin in texas. thank you. america's crime crisis in chicago. 40 people, 40 people shot over the long weekend. another dozen on tuesday alone including a teenage girl who was

the news conference. this is addressed to mayor lori lightfoot and i'll get your response. >> mayor lightfoot, we want you to put together a task force to catch the shooters that are shooting our babies. just like you caught the looters, you can catch the shooters. were asking that you put together a task force and put these kids on tv just like you did. we saw kids that did the looting downtown. we want shooters off the street. >> is there a sense from your perspective that the mayor, city leaders are not doing enough to address what's become this absolute tragic crisis in chicago? >> there would definitely mayhem here in chicago. i sympathize with the young lady who was just on. the mayor is going to have to realize they are going to have to deal with grassroots organizations.

united legion one nation has a blueprint in effect and incident spending so much of the taxpayers money and hundreds of thousands trying to get tactical units out and putting more money into the blue, we need to start dealing with those who are already out here doing it. that's the only solution. but our babies. before they go on a crime spree. gains are being funded by the drugs. that's their backbone. that catch them before they have to get to the age where gang bangers grab them to sell drugs. we're not going to have to -- we're not going to be able to go backwards. the mayor making a ridiculous comment. let's deal with the problem. >> trace: talking about 14 people shot yesterday. 40 over the weekend. 2800 so far this year.

the question that i would have is why are people not screaming from the rooftops. why are there not protest every single week in chicago on the south side, trying to figure out a way to remedy the problem? >> there's so much going on. the media doesn't get everything. definitely parents, other people, their activists, other organizations that are on the front lines that are just tired of being tired. they are making noise. they are out here. it's going to have to come from those that are are already started their organizations. >> trace: mike tobin mentioned that the number of shootings has gone up. the number of police has gone down. "the times have changed. the streets have no discipline anymore that's what's happening. people have no consequences. if they do something, they feel like no one can tell them what to do so it's easy for them to do anything." is that part of the problem, pete? >> let me just say at the street
