implications, and it's a sign of america's medical innovation. paul: remarkable stuff. thanks. that's it for this week's show. thanks to my panel and thank you to all of you for watching. i'm paul gigot, we hope to see you right here next week. ♪ ♪ eric: hollywood shocked, saddened and searching for answers after that horrible deadly shooting on the movie set in new mexico that involves alec baldwin. the actor break his silence saying that the killing of the cinematographer on his movie with a prop gun was a, quote, tragic accident. authorities investigate what led up to the shooting as well as the problems on that set that had been reported. hello and welcome to brand new hour of "fox news live," i'm eric shawn. alicia: i'm alicia acuna in for arthel. details are now emerging in the
1:01 pm
aftermath of the accident. cinematographer hal halyna hutcs was killed. there are reports baldwin was told the gun was cold meaning unloaded when it was handed to him. there's also a report that several crew members walked off the set days before the incident to protest poor working conditions. actor dean cain says, in his opinion, it's apparent that strict safety measures were not followed. >> there's a really clear protocol when you have a firearm on set as, clearly, they weren't followed. it should never, ever happen. that's, like, rule number one that live rounds are kept out. eric: and lots of questions whether or not that production if was trying to save money. matt finn live in los angeles with more. matt? >> reporter: eric, we're learning more from the multiple 911 calls placed from the movie set of "rust" in new mexico where alec baldwin accidentally
1:02 pm
shot and killed a woman. one of the callers told the 911 operator that the two shooting victims were doubled over and alert after they were shot. here's some of the 99 11 calls. >> reporter: baldwin fired a gun that he was reportedly told was cold at the director of photography, hal that hutchens. she was shot in the chest and killed. director joel souza, standing behind her, was shot in the shoulder. he's expected to be okay. hutchins was reportedly advocating for more safety on the troubled movie set. her colleague said she had a very strong work ethic and forgave coworkers for mistakes. and we now know a search warrant
1:03 pm
was issued so investigators could document the film set, the warrant says baldwin's blood-stained costume and the prop gun was taken as we've, and the h.a. times is now reporting a prop gun misfired a new times on the movie set before baldwin's fatal shooting. baldwin was photographed after the tragedy looking distraught, and he has since tweeted, quote: there are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic stent that took the life of -- accident that took the life of halyna hutchins. i am fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred. and after the accident the abc show "the the rookie" has reportedly banned firing of real guns on their set. they'll use remember ca guns, and you have to wonder how many more might do the same. eric. eric: just tragic. thank you. alicia: among the many questions swirling around the deadly
1:04 pm
shooting, where do alec baldwin, the production company and the studio stand legally. joining me now is mercedes colwin, fox news legal analyst. mercedes, thank you for being here. we still don't know all of the facts, but from a legal standpoint where do you see this headed from a criminal standpoint and civil? >> well, there's definitely criminal charges, that could be at least a minimal investigation. number one is involuntary hand slaughter. and it's not -- manslaughter. and it's not really going to be alec baldwin because in new mexico there's excusable homicide. and under excusable homicide essentially if there's an accidental killing of an individual but ordinary care was used by the individual being accused of it, they're excused of the homicide. the focus may very well be the prop manager. what did he do in terms of, he or she do prior to handing the gun to mr. baldwin. did he exercise the sufficient care? because under the involuntary
1:05 pm
manslaughter charges in new mexico, you have to show reckless disregard for someone's rights who ultimately results in the individual's death. so all of that has to be investigated. but that's just on the criminal side. then you have the civil side. already it's being reported that it seemed like the set was not being done this a way, exercising the appropriate amount of caution to insure the safety of the individuals participating in the movie. that really rings very clear that there could be civil, a civil responsibility, civil case that will come out of it, a wrongful death case. but here's the rub, if everyone is employed by the studio, let's say it could be a worker's comp claim. but if mr. baldwin is, obviously, he's an independent contractor, he could be sued individually. the prop manager, unless the prop manager is actually an employee of the studio, then of course that would be swift under worker's compensation. but there will likely be some
1:06 pm
sort of civil action that comes out of it because at the end of the day, this was a horrible tragedy and someone died, ms. hutchins died. she was young, she was only in her early 40s. there will be so many years that, obviously, her family -- not only the fact that her while's lost her mother, but of course the husband as well. there could be multiple parties attached to it as well. alicia: and then we also have this report from the los angeles times that matt finn was reporting on in part, and it has some pretty damning information in there including that six camera crew workers walked off the job due to safety concerns, and there's this, quote: baldwin's stunt double accidentally fired two rounds saturday after being told that the gun was cold. a colleague was so alarmed by the prop gun misfires that he sent a text message to the unit production manager. we've now had three accidental discharges. this is super unsafe, according to a copy of the message
1:07 pm
reviewed by the times. so, mercedes, where does a text like that take things? >> well, that's going to be in the civil action. i mean, certainly they're going to look at that and say you knew or should have known that this was a dangerous prop. there had already been misfires presumably is with that similar gun that was used here or other guns that were available to the actors and crew. there is obviously a very big problem with the safety of those guns and yet nothing was done. so that is clear evidence that a plaintiff's lawyer can use on behalf of ms. hutchins family when they sue -- presume by there will be some lawsuit that comes out of this. they will use that to say you knew that there was a dangerous, it was a dangerous set, there was danger in the guns itself, and nothing was done to secure those guns to insure that nothing could happen. and, unfortunately, now this is the result of it. alicia: and when we're talking
1:08 pm
about an accident or possible negligence and you have alec baldwin here who's not only an actor on the set, but also a producer, and then we have the production company, i mean, does alec baldwin, is he, like, more vulnerable legally if he's a producer as opposed to an actor? >> well, it could be. i mean, it really depends on all -- there's so many contracts that are involved in the making of a movie. so there's multiple layers, there's multiple contracts, multiple parties, multiple entities. it's anybody that employed ms. hutchins would probably fall into that worker's comp like i talked about earlier, but anyone outside of that could be listed as a direct defendant by ms. hutchins' family when they will sue. it really will depend on with respect to the contract and presumably if alec baldwin is actually producer, he may very
1:09 pm
well be the person who contracted all the individuals there including ms. hutchins or the prop managers. but a lot of focus is going to be on this prop manager, what was done prior to handing the gun to mr. baldwin and what safety procedures and precautions were taken on the set. and you're exactly right, alicia, there's so much evidence that a lot of safety was at risk, and if there's any evidence of a deviation of standard of care, that's clear and con sliping evidence that there's -- convincing evidence. alicia: just really feel for this family that has lost a wife and mother. mercedesing colwin, thank you so much. >> my pleasure. eric: meanwhile, the autopsy coming back inconclusive for the cause of death for brian laundrie. his remains were found on wednesday in that florida wildlife reserve. it's not known if he killed himself or perhaps fell victim to one of those wild swamp alligators. charles watson is in front of
1:10 pm
the laundrie's house. hi, charles. >> reporter: hi, eric. forensic anthropologieses will take a look at the remains and try to determine when and how he died. that is the path that's being taken after, as you mentioned, an initial autopsy came back inconclusive. on wednesday the fbi confirmed they found human remains and personal items belonging to brian in the swampy environmental park. law enforcement had been searching the area for brian for more than a month as he was considered a person of interest in the murder of his girlfriend, gabby petito. at the laundries' north port home, we've not only seen people showing town see the gabby petito memorial, but we're also seeing people stop by to pay their respects to the laundrie family. the makeshift memorial honoring gabby continues to grow by the day as people continue to add signs, pictures and american flags to honor the 22-year-old. and while that memorial gets
1:11 pm
larger, so does the outpouring of thoughts and well wishes for the laundries who have received a number of flower bouquets with respect for the death of their son brian. one woman says she worked with both brian and gabby and said people should reserve their judgment. >> the world needs to know they're not bad people. he head a mistake. made a mistake. only god can judge you. >> reporter: meanwhile, there are a lot of questions about what the laundries knew, if anything and when, after brian's remains were found the morning they rejoined the search for their son in a once water-logged area that they had previously flagged to police. the family attorney dismissed claims and conspiracies that the family planted evidence or knew where to find brian as baseless. >> coincidence may be an appropriate word, but at the end of this tragedy, chris and roberta, you know, knew he went
1:12 pm
to the reserve, they knew his mental state when he went there. >> reporter: and, eric, no word yet if the funeral service will be held for brian laundrie. we have spoken to the family's attorney who tells us his body will be crematedded. eric: and that photo behind you of gabby on the lawn just heartbreaking and haunting. alicia? alicia: the border crisis reaching an all-time high in fiscal year 2021 with more than 1.7 million migrant encounters. according to new numbers from customs and is border patrol. bill melugin is live at the southern boarder in hoya, texas -- la joya, texas, with more. >> reporter: that's exactly right. look, we already have record-setting, hi to have call numbers, and even so we have yet another massive group of migrants in a caravan heading here as we speak. take a look at this wild video out of mexico shop this morning showing thousands of those my
1:13 pm
grants in the caravan literally forcing their way through mexican security forces who are trying to set up a roadblock. that was national guard and federal police. you can see they just run right through them, kind of like a hot knife through butter, and they just continue on their way could be there. again, thousands of migrants in that caravan just leaving tapachula this morning. this group planning to head to mexico city first, then head towards the u.s./mexico border. but this is an incredibly well organized caravan. the leader, an activist who basically said it's the biden administration's policies that are enticing migrants to try to get to the u.s. board, and he's going to help lead them there. there were some beans that the migrants were holding up one of which said joe biden for all. this caravan forming, i would add that tens of thousands of migrants are on their way to the border this week.
1:14 pm
that caravan now on the march, and as you can see, mexican security forces really not offering a whole lot of resistance. now, earlier today former u.s. border patrol chief rodney scott was on fox news. he basically said the administration's strategy is not working, something's going to have to change. >> there were known terrorists that crossed the border. i've made that clear to congress. i've asked them -- this is a direct result of this administration's policies. you can't stand on the border with a smirk on your face and say the border's closed, the border's secure, we have a plan. >> reporter: and then take a look at this tweet that the u.s. consulate put out last night. they're warning their people there that they need to shelter in place because of cartel gun battles versus the mexican government. the mexican city is directly across from the u.s. city of brownsville in southern texas. there were some serious gunfights going out on out there last night.
1:15 pm
the cartels had actually set up roadblocks which could lead to further fighting, so pretty startling that that gunfighting is having to lead to people sheltering in place there. and that is directly across the border from an american city. back to you. lynn liver so scary. -- alicia:. bill melugin, thank you. eric: democrats sending in big names to help terry mcauliffe in virginia including former president barack obama. polls show this closely watched governor's race is neck ask neck. some say it could be a clue for which party will win in the midterms. we're live from from old dominion straight ahead here on "fox news live." ♪ behind neuriva plus. unlike ordinary memory supplements, neuriva plus fuels six key indicators of brain performance. more brain performance? yes, please! neuriva. think bigger.

governor's race. high profile democrats are heading to the state as mcauliffe is shown in a dead heat with republican glenn youngkin with just over a week until election day. mark meredith is live in richmond with more. hey, mark. >> reporter: good afternoon. terry mcauliffe is counting on the biggest names to try to fire if up debate and help him out in what's turned out to be a very close race. former president had a lott to say, very eager to to be back out on the campaign trail helping out terry mcauliffe here at virginia commonwealth university. it was interesting to hear the president showing his full support for mcauliffe but also bashing the republican in this race. although the former president made it clear he sees this as a race that goes beyond just virginia especially going into next year's midterm election. >> i believe you right here in virginia are going to show the rest of the country9 and the world that we're not going indulge in our worst instincts, we're not going to go back to the chaos that did so much damage, we're going to move

1:22 pm
what we must do: we will win -- >> reporter: youngkin will continue on the trail this weekend. he's going to be holding multiple rallies tomorrow including in newport news and chesapeake. we're going to be on the ground to show you that side of the campaign. we are expecting more of these events. as for terry mcauliffe, he's got a big one on tuesday, an event with president biden in arlington, virginia. mcauliffe has campaigned with the president before earlier in the summer, but we have seen the president's approval ratings drop in recent weeks, and we're waiting to see whether or not that issue could cost mcall police officer this race that's getting closer by the day. alicia: mark meredith, thanks. eric: well, the national school boards association are now apologizing for the wording of the letter it sent president biden last month about fired-up parents and the threats of violence at some contentious school board meetings we've been seeing across the country.

1:34 pm
24/7 operation, adding more licensed truckers. there's a lot of ways that we can make it better, but there's no magic wand. eric: yeah. there are a bunch of ways also as you just mentioned in terms of truckers. flexport, a billion dollar company, the ceo has some suggestions. let me run these by you. he says, thurm one, change the zoning. get this, zoning in l.a. and long beach you can only stack containers two high. he says make it six high. deploy the national guard and army trucks to get her trucks in there, the white house, you know, putting cold water on that for now. use government land for those containers to get the ships and containers off and hopscotch trains for shorter hauls. right now if they put a container on a train and go from the port of los angeles to dallas, 1,500 miles, no. hopscotch them short tore get the train off, to get the train back, to get the containers on
1:35 pm
the train. this just seems like a logistical nightmare especially when you have this type of backup this 40, 50, 60 ships sitting like a parking lot out in the pacific. >> yeah, eric, yes, those are all ideas, but we have a major infrastructure problem in this country. the engineers' report gave us, like, a d over the last few years on how well the u.s. infrastructure's working, whether it's ports or trains or next generation g, s or national -- gps or national electric grid. we've been having these issues for a while. we've had a need for a national infrastructure bank. we know why we have these issues logistically, but what's happened today is 100% driven by the pandemic, right? we're talking about literally trade ended, manufacturing ended, you know, the consumer was on the the sidelines and then all of a sudden, boom, everything opened up, and i think -- no one could be ready for it. we're not alone in this.
1:36 pm
so, yes, some of these different ideas could be helpful, but those are not going change things in a one week or two week basis, being able to pile up a few more cases. we're short tens of thousands of truckers. we're short, you know, different industry and service -- i mean, people who are sitting on the sidelines employment wise because they want better wages and benefits. there's a whole slew of things that are going to take time to work out of what happened over the last 18 months. eric: the president of the teamsters speaking out about that in terms of wages and benefits for truckers to hire more truckers. finally, bob, you just mentioned the infrastructure bank that you testified a year ago, look, we're talking about the infrastructure now with the president's, you know, trillion dollar bill. what did you testify about a decade ago, and what does this country need to do to stay competitive with china and all these other nations that have some infrastructure far advanced, believe it or not,
1:37 pm
beyond ours? what is bob wolf's solution and prescription to try and get us back up to where we should be. >> well, i don't think we're going to be able to catch up that quickly. the first thing i would do is pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill, that's $1.2 trillion. that should be passed immediately. that's the physical part of infrastructure, but it includes, you know, getting wi-fi and computer capability to rural areas, it includes an increase in -- capability, it looks at next generation gps, it looks at the whole electric watery discussion -- battery discussion that we all should be having as we move to a more climate-resilient type of environment. you know, what i was saying back then are the same things we're saying today, but back then it was a couple trillion in needs, today it's four trillion. it doesn't get better. and i remember that governor rendell once said you'd hate to see a sign don't go over that

1:39 pm
polls have them neck and neck. so let's bring in a political and investigative reporter for the washington examiner. sara, thank you so much for being here. before we get started, i'd like to it up some recent fox news polling. first, on the top issues among registered voters. you can see inflation and higher prices at the top with 87ing tolled by political division and health care. but then comes what schools teach at 73% as a top issue. and then we can look at top issues for parents. 80% said what schools teach. how does this kind of concern play out in the virginia race and more broadly heading into the '22 midtermses? >> this issue is a huge winner for glenn youngkin. there was a recent cbs poll that found that among those voters rated schools and curriculum as their top issue motivating their vote. glenn youngkin led those voters by 20 points.
1:40 pm
mcauliffe is in a really bad position when it comes to this issue not just because of the gaffe that he had a gubernatorial debate where he said he doesn't believe parents should be telling schools what to teach, but because his party is completely on the offensive when it comes to critical race theory and mask mandates in schools. democrats don't really have a satisfactory answer to parents who are concerned about those things, and republicans are have really been able to seize that opportunity and fill that gap. you know, if you talked to republicans earlier in the summer about how glenn youngkin's campaign was going, you heard complaints that there was not really animating it, and he was running strictly an establishment campaign focused on jobs and economic growth at a time when joe biden was still polling relatively well on those issues. the political backdrop has completely shifted since the summer. biden is underwater nationally, he's underwater in virginia, his
1:41 pm
party is not popular, they're not able to get anything done, and the schools issue has drawn a lot of attention to something youngkin is really on. so the star it is are aligning for young job kin in a glue state. alicia: we have this national school boards association apology, the loudon county school board, a lot of apologies going around, but when i saw these number, i was thinking about all the parents around the country who were at home sometimes during the remote learning and what they saw and heard coming at their kids coming on their computers is something that they didn't like. >> that's right. and in virginia this is really the perfect nexus of a local and a national issue. you see a lot of republicans starting to emulate the strategy that youngkin has pursued in virginia. loudoun county is really the ground zero for this movement of parents who are showing up at school boards and demonstrating against liberal curriculum policies and if also covid mandates that they feel are an
1:42 pm
overreach. and youngkin has taken advantage of that, but it's not just a local issue anymore if, it's a national one. i think a big mistake mcauliffe made was he tried to nationalize this campaign. he made it all about national issues and trying to do so to motivate democratic voters. right now the national picture is really unfavorable for democrats, and youngkin has kept the focus on virginia issues. you don't see him bringing in national visioners the way mcauliffe did. youngkin's focused on himself, on virginia, so mcauliffe's strategy of trying to make this about a broader ideological argument seem like it may have backfired in the final stretch of the race. liver herb sarah west -- alicia: sarah westwood, thank you so much for joining us. eric: well or, president biden admits gas prices will not come
