>> tragedy in texas, at least eight killed and hundreds injured at the astroworld music festival when the crowd surged toward the stage as travis scott performed. welcome to fox news live, i'm griff jenkins. anita: . molly: i'm molly line. so many were injured in a mass casualty event. and they were quickly overwelcomed. >> hi, molly, yes, such a tragedy at what was expected to be a fun and lively event. eight people were killed and many more were hurt.
take a listen to the witness's account of the chaos. >> this is sad, everyone-- this shouldn't have happened. >> an estimated 50,000 people were at this sold out two-day music festival in houston last night when the stampede happened. rapper travis scott was on stage and i'm told in a matter of minutes people started surging toward the stage and that's when the awful stampede happened leave eight people dead. >> the crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage, okay, and that caused some panic and it started causing some injuries. people began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic. >> there's not a confirmed number yet on just how many people were injured. i just got off the phone with a spokesperson for houston's office of emergency management.
she tells me more than 300 people were transported to local hospitals from the festival throughout the day yesterday for different medical issues and some were unrelated to the stampede for things like heat exhaustion, however, officials did confirm this morning that many of the victims from the stampede were tragically young. >> we transported 17 patients from the hospital. 12 of those patients were transported by houston fire department ambulances, five were transported by harris county emergency services, 11 of those that were transported were in cardiac arrest. >> the second day of the soldout music festival has been canceled. astroworld released a statement saying it's working to assist in any way they can and another press conference is scheduled to cover the incident for this afternoon at 3 p.m. central
time, molly. molly: thank you, christina coleman, surely a tragedy on the ground and they're trying to get to the bottom of it. with us to what might have led to the panic at astroworld, former fbi joint terrorism task force member steve rogers. thank you for joining us, christina coleman just confirming that we may have suspected looking at this crowd and the youth involved, and many of the victims that passed as a result of what happened on the ground were indeed young. i just want your thoughts on this. looking at what we know so far there was this compression, this surge toward the front of the stage, your thoughts. >> this is not the first time such a tragedy occurred at an event of this magnitude. lessons should have been learned from experiences. for example, i've always believed they should have reserve seating, everyone should have a reserved seat. they're not going to get up and rush toward stages like we've seen occur when people and thousands of people are standing. there has to be a better job
and having multiple points of entry, multiple points ever exit, keep it orderly and by all mean no fences. fences cause a tremendous amount of injuries and death as we've seen in the past when there's a mad rush, so, what are the lessons learned? what i just articulated to you and i believe this was the cause of just young people having a good time and things get out of control when we're young and once they're out of control, difficult to bring it back into control. molly: some reporting on the scene talked about an enormous amount of confusion of people trying to get away from the unfolding situation and you mentioned past events where you've seen similar things happen. it was this actual, three people were trampled at the same festival in 2019 and a report from earlier in the day there were a group of people that rushed to get in a specific entrance. what does it say about crowd control there on the ground? >> well, it's very difficult to control 50,000 people packed in like sardines in a can.
you know, the first thing that came to mind, our major league sports events, thousands, tens of thousands of people orderly going into the stadium, sitting down, orderly exiting, so there has to be again, as i said earlier, lessons learned on points of entry, points of exit, where they're going to sit. the first responders and police did a tremendous job, but unfortunately it was after the fact and they need to do things better, not our first responders, but those organizing the events, they need to do a better job at ak proactive rather than reactive. molly: this happened at energy park, live nation, travis scott, astroworld festival. sometimes open seating is referred to as festival seating. in many venues there's seating, but sometimes an area, up close to the stage called the pit, but a limited number of people allowed in that. a lot of concert goers are familiar with that as a sort of venue. but at the same time these types of big if he feels happen
all over the country and what separates one from another and what would allow this to happen at one place versuses another. >> what you said earlier, crowd control. you have to have a lot of security, a tremendous amount of security that will keep things orderly, but there's no way that you're going to be able to control 25, 30,000 people rushing towards the stage. i don't know if they checked for alcohol, drugs. we may find out there may have been some contributing factors to that, but i believe, and in the investigations i've conducted regarding similar incidents where there is a quick action, like rushing toward the stage and people are beginning to see others get hurt. their first reaction is to run, completely run, their mind is focused on getting out of that event and unfortunately it causes more death and injury. molly: the houston police chief said until we determine what happened, what caused the stage, we don't know, we'll
find out if there's anything criminal, we don't know. is it something potentially criminal that occurred here? >> well, i don't know. i don't believe so. i think the only thing that i would say is criminal maybe neglect on the part of those who organized the event. i for the life of me can't figure out why after these incidents are happening sporadically around the country, but as you said in 2018, that there wasn't more detailed information given to security, more security, more planning for exit and entry of any type of eventuallity. i can't figure that out other than neglect. that doesn't mean that that happened, but that may be something they look into. molly: steve rogers, thank you, the investigators down in houston still investigating. >> appreciate. griff: remaining in session late into the night, after the
outcome of especially the virginia governor's race and the house passed the trillion dollar infrastructure bill and the spending bill hangs in the balance. lucas tomlinson is covering all of it. >> hi, griff. after the disastrous withdrawal from afghanistan, flagging poll numbers and the bill would not have been passed without republican support. >> and puts us on a path to win the economic competition of the 21st century that we face with china and the rest of the world. it's going to create more jobs, good paying jobs, union jobs, and can't be outsourced. >> here is what's in the bill. $110 billion for roads, bridges and transformational projects. 89 billion public transit. 65 billion, access to high
speed internet, 50 billion to protect against droughts, floods and wildfires. and 13 republicans voted for it, six democrats against it, including the so-called squad led by alexandria ocasio-cortez, the progressive wing blocked the bill for months to force a vote on the massive social spending bill, a separate spending bill which will come after congress returns. moderate democrats wanted to wait for the budget office to provide a score on the spending bill. estimated 1.75 trillion down from 3.5 trillion. house speaker nancy pelosi reacted to the defections from her party. >> what's your reaction to-- >> the vote-- >> president biden says that the americans will start to feel the impact of the
infrastructure bill in the next two to three months. >> lucas tomlinson, thank you very much. >> now, for more on biden's spending bills, and the republican from wisconsin, brian style. thank you for taking time on saturday. you had a late night and a big speech at the white house, the president saying he's confident this is going to be great for all americans. your reaction? >> president biden and nancy pelosi continue their radical expansion of the united states government. what we need to do is get the government out of the way, get workers back to work. we see significant investment in this most recent bill in things like the green new deal, the federal government building charging stations and this is from an administration that continues to pun initial private sector investment. we need to remember that joe biden killed the keystone pipeline on the first day he was in office. and he wants expansion and another bill passed that continues to march toward the radical expansion by pelosi and
biden. griff: congressman, 13 on your side of the siel voted for this. some from the midwest, from ohio, from michigan, and illinois, and then some in the northeast and new york and new jersey. why didn't you join them and really, what do you make of them crossing the aisle? >> i was disappointed to see this bill pass, disappointed there was some that crossed the aisle in this direction. i think this is a significant expansion of the federal government, now we need to double down and focus on the social spending bill that's coming before us. republicans need to hold firm against the next move by pelosi and biden as they work to dramatically increase the size, scale, and scope of the federal government. griff: let me play the devil's advocate. isn't $110 billion for roads and bridges an investment that benefits wisconsinites? >> it's appropriate to invest in our aging infrastructure. we need to be targeted. there are billions of dollars
in this bill for green new deal ideas. the federal government should not be involved in building electric charging stations. why were gas stations built where they were? private sector investment. this administration continues to punish the private sector and private sector investment just like they killed the keystone pipeline. we need to be working to get the federal government out of the way and allow the american worker to get back to work. griff: i want to specifically direct your attention to something that president biden said just a while ago and that's, he says this bill will help make us more competitive with china. how do you see it? >> it is important to invest in our roads and bridges, but again, this bill goes on a bill government spending spree. the american public is already being punished with the run away spending in washington d.c., we're experiencing higher prices day in and day out. the next bill coming before us is the plan to pay for it. they're planning to raise taxes
on americans and all are taxed by inflation, they clobbered every american and particularly low income workers and seniors on fixed income. griff: and you're about to have this fight all over again next week, the build back better social spending bill which we are told pays for itself by the president and democrats, but yet, the moderates in the democratic party holding out to get na cbo, congressional budget office score to see exactly where things stand. what do you anticipate happens? >> speaker pelosi and president biden created the lie that this bill costs zero dollars, we're finally going to get to know the actual number. there's going to be trillions and trillions of dollars of new government spending. and they're coming after the american public to pay the tacks, to pay for it. everyone is going to foot the bill for this bill when we see the impact of rising prices. you already see that when you go to fill up your car at the gas station, when you pick up
groceries and pretty soon when americans go christmas shopping, every american is going to be left footing the bill of the radical expansion of the government by pelosi and biden. griff: i've got 20 seconds left. what impact to you see the election in virginia this past week. >> i think in virginia and new jersey, enough spending in washington d.c. we want to rip the bandaid off covid and get our lives back and we continue to see nancy pelosi and joe biden not understand the american people. griff: congressman bryan steil, we'll see you when we have the next bill. molly: on the other side of the aisle we bring in democratic congress woman, thank you for joining us on this saturday afternoon. we appreciate it. >> of course, happy to be here with you.
let's talk about that infrastructure bill. it took a while to get it over the finish line and now it's gotten there in the late night vote and the president holding the press conference today. your colleague from the other side of the aisle called it a radical expansion of the federal government, that from the republican of wisconsin. your thoughts as it's just passed? >> there is absolutely nothing radical about investment in infrastructure. infrastructure has long been a bipartisan priority. it's been voted on in the house and the senate. and getting an infrastructure bill done and getting an investment of infrastructure of this size was the goal of president trump. but it took president biden to get it done and families across the country are going to see the benefit in new roads and bridges and clean drinking water, expansion of broadband so they can access digital learning and all of the resources on the internet. this bill is a good bill that's going to help families across
the country. and i'm excited that we can get it done last night. molly: infrastructure tends to poll fairly well and it's done in a bipartisan manner and 13 republicans that came across the aisle to make it happen. now we're focusing on the same thing, the build back better act and while infrastructure tends to be something where there's compromise and a lot of discussion of compromise around, there social spending effort looks like it might be the tougher challenge, and yet, it seems like there's some confidence on the democratic side that a deal has been made. the president saying that he doesn't negotiate in public, the president saying he's confident he'll have the votes to pass the build back better plan. your thoughts as that becomes the next challenge? >> i'm feeling very confident that we'll pass the build back better act and i have to tell you when i'm talking to my constituents regardless of their political background, if they have have kids they are struggling to afford child care right now. if they take medicine, they're
having a hard time affording prescription drugs. while my colleagues in washington don't want to support the bill, this is in my district and across the country. molly: you've been tweeting about this and congratulating your colleagues for moving forward on this issue at all. you talked about in your recent tweet the 300,000 jobs and the civilian climate corps, historic investments in clean energy. when there's such a challenge getting republicans to cross the aisle on infrastructure, how will you get those republicans over the line when you're talking about build back better act? >> well, because the build back better act is using a proceed called budget reconciliation, i'm sure your viewers have heard more about than they ever know, we only need democratic votes to be able to pass it. i think there are some republicans who might be interested, given how important child care and the expanded child tax credit, which is a tax cut for middle class families is for folks in their district, but the fact of the
matter is, i'm confident that when we get the cbo score back, it will show that this bill is deficit neutral and we will have the full votes of the democratic caucus to get it done. molly: let's talk about how democrats have voted, and republicans voting against it and the squad progressives, six who voted against the bill. what do you do to pull those six in on the build back better plan and what stops them from pushing a progressive agenda that many moderate democrats won't want to vote for as they look collectively to the democrats what would potentially be perceived as another political victory? >> look, the build back better act as it's currently written, an it's being scored by cbo was a long process of negotiation between all members of the democratic caucus. and it wouldn't have gotten to the place that it is without full buy-in from our whole
caucus and without the leadership of president biden, who has been tireless in making sure that he's talked to all of us and that we all understand what's in the bill, feel good about it and are ready to vote for it as soon as the cbo score shows it will be deficit neutral. molly: there's some touting of a swift timeline on this, congresswoman sara jacobs, thank you on a saturday afternoon, we appreciate it. >> of course, thank you for having me. molly: tomorrow bill hemmer filling in for chris wallace, he will be with james clyburn and liz cheney, check your local listings for time and channel. and howard kurtz, the race in virginia and what went wrong for democrats when it comes to education. griff: a fox news alert, you're looking at marine one arriving
in delaware, the president and first lady taking the short trip from washington to the rehoboth beach, delaware as he finished speech this morning after the passing of the infrastructure bill. we will get the latest if he makes it of any remarks. president biden speaks out and a controversial plan this morning, the plan to compensate migrants who had family members separated during the trump administration, we'll tell what you he had to say next. once upon a time, at the magical everly estate, landscaper larry and his trusty crew... were delayed when the new kid totaled his truck. timber... fortunately, they were covered by progressive, so it was a happy ending... for almost everyone. ♪♪ three times the electorlytes
>> you said last week that this report about migrant families at the border getting payments was garbage. >> no, i didn't say that, to demonstrate, you said everybody coming across the border gets 500 $450,000. >> the number is what you had a problem with. the number i was referring to. >> okay, sure. >> here is the thing, if, in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration you coming across the border whether it was legal or illegal and you lost your child, you lost your child, he's gone, you deserve some kind of compensation, no matter what the circumstance, what that will be i have no
idea. i have no idea. >> that was president biden this morning in response to a question from our own david spunt on reports that his administration will pay migrant families separated at the border. now, let's go live to our fox fly flying over la joya, texas and mostly there's a thousand a day and we're watching the migrant caravan in southern mexico moving up through the central part of mexico. now we're told and this is certainly an area where they could possibly end up although the last caravan of two years ago ended up near where steve harrigan is live in del rio, texas. steve, what are you doing? what's happening there? >> griff, you can stand here
pretty much on most days, seeing small groups of five to 10 cross over each day behind the hills behind me and walking through the river. and the team in la joya, a lot of discussion on the biden administration paying out to some from the trump administration, families separated from their children and heard explanations, different explanations. originally president biden saying reports of potential payments of $450,000 were garbage. two days later the biden administration clarifying that, saying the president was comfortable with potential payments to migrants, if that would indeed save taxpayers money and recently with david spunt, the president seeming to make the case that payments are in order, but no specific amount. that amount could prove to be large, numbers of more than
3,000 families involved, a class action lawsuit by the a.c.l.u., and more than a billion dollars from the psychological payments. and we're seeing steady crossings, the drone team capturing a number of people crossing in la joya, crossing from venezuela, a group of several dozen ready to be processed, two people in latter stages of pregnancy, taken by van. most migrants expect to be processed and released on the same day. back to you. griff: steve harrigan, mentioning the criticism of the payments, stay tuned we'll have more in the next hour with national border council

>> the latest jobs report showed that 531,000 jobs were added last month. the fed said this week that rising inflation is likely here to stay and could lead to more economic uncertainties. joining us now to discuss it, the advising partner and research fellow at san diego school of business and also the host a podcast from ann arbor, michigan, mitch, thank you. i want to get your reaction, 531,000 jobs added, not too bad . is the u.s. economy's engine roaring now? >> i wouldn't say roaring.
the gdp number, gross national product name shows we're slowing. the number is not too surprising. let's remember the middle of september we cut off the supplemental unemployment benefits so the incentives for people not to go back to work disappeared so people, no surprise, started to look for jobs. and the growth in the government, very, very encouraging, there's 10.4 million job openings in america and only 7.7 unemployed so we certainly still have a lot of disruption in the labor market. griff: add into the inflation aspect, you're right, mitch, the unemployment rate dropping from 4.8 to 4.6. if you look here at this, you see inflation up 5.4% compared to wages just up 4.9%. what impact does that have? >> well, that's exactly it. and if you look at why we have
inflation, part of it is because of all of this labor disruption, i would refer to it as a root cause of inflation because we have a service economy. if you can't find workers and you have to pay more, the restaurant i went into said we'll pay $16 an hour for servers because they can't find them. as you continue to pay for workers, that is baked in the meal you have, and that's a vicious cycle. when inflation is raising more than wage gains, that's for all americans. griff: and hearts and minds follow. they say look at places where they're paying more, places skyrocketing. you see the car and truck rental, up 42.9%, gas, obviously we're feeling that every single time woo get in our cars. hotels, not a good sign we're about to enter the holiday season. pork, steak and ribs, up 9%. i had a steak, not sure how
much more i paid for it. milk and eggs up as well. this is a problem, mitch. >> and just to underscore that, you mentioned hotels going up. the wage gains in hotels are over 10%, 11.4%. just for workers to work in hotels so that has to be reflected in the price of the room night that you stay in. so some of the supply and demand for whatever it is, a room, but a lot of it's also the underlying costs that end up getting passed along to the consumers. i think if you look at it, we're not too far away from the midterms, i think it's going to be a major issue in the fed shrugged off earlier says it's transitory, temporary, and now that it may be here for a while. griff: in the private sector, some sectors are hit by the inflation, oreo's, wheat
things, sour patch kids and i have the list goes on and on. and i have an individually wrapped sour patch kid, and maybe i can only get a single instead of the box. >> think of it, the dollar value meal has now become at mcdonald's, the $3 value meal. and at chain restaurants, they may keep the price the same, but the steak may be two ounces smaller. after a while you can only do it so long. what happens in economic theory, the consumer pushes back and stops consuming and that slows the economy. we've talked about stagflation before. that's what happens when you have a lot of inflation, the economy ends up slowing down because the consumer won't pay the higher price. griff: and that's not a good thing. mitch rochelle, perhaps next time you're in washington we'll share a three-ounce new york
strip, hopefully not. >> go blue. griff: and peter morici at the university of maryland professor joins us to discuss the supply chain prices. molly. molly: after years of pushing every development on the russia investigation, this week the mainstream media ignored the latest event that the fbi arrested a man based on special council. a look at the key source of the steele doesier. >> the inassignment of igor danchenko, intertwined with the investigation of president trump in russia, washington post said in the lead story, allegations cast new uncertainty on past reporting on the doesier by news organizations including "the washington post." yet despite the enormous media attention to the russia
investigation, including the doesier, the nbc, abc, cbs evening newscast ignored the indictment. he was charged with lying to the fbi about salacious allegations against trump and allegedly fed some to charles dolan, a former clinton administration official. the fbi said it launched the russia probe before seeing the steele doesier, in a wire stamp investigation for carter page, the bureau used the doesier's claims. fox news covered the story extensively. >> there were red flags from the dossier from the beginning. and christopher steele was working for what was funded by the clinton campaign. >> this report comes in the
midst of a concerted attack on christopher steele himself from republicans in congress, they're alleging that he was basically peddling false information. >> last night she slammed the case. >> the indictment is designed to smear christopher steele's intelligence reports as things that were deliberatery made up and concocted by rascally democrats. >> and the steele dossier may seem like a footnote in what once dominated national politics. and now that it's discredited, many in the media have lost interest. >> joining us for analysis, fox news contributor, andy mccarthy, thank you for i think jo joining us this afternoon. you had a chance there to
listen to howie who unfolded what we saw for years. and there's somewhat of a disclosure of information, the media has gone away. what are you seeing from the latest as durham continues his work? >> i think as far as the investigation goes, where we're probably headed is to a narrative report at the end. i don't know how many more criminal charges there'll be. i know there's been some sense that this was a moving up of the chain by the prosecutor to more flashy targets, shall we say, but i don't think that's the case because if you're going to make a big case here, it would be like the big fraud on the court case or big obstruction of justice case and what durham's last two indictments figure was that the fbi was duped. since they're the ones who ultimately supplied the information to the court, i don't think you're going to see a big prosecution of people who
were involved in the government. i do think you'll get a big narrative report that will mainly focus on the clinton campaign and the fact that it generated and then peddled this information and i think it will look harshly at the way the fbi performed. molly: when you talk about duped. the special counsel durham indicted igor dachenko, and the steele dossier and warrant to spy on the trump campaign. and denying that the info included in that dossier came from a democratic operative. what do you make of the charges against him and what we're learning now, and specifically when it relates to, we already have some idea where the funding came from and now hearing that the sourcing may be linked to democrats? >> well, i think that's an
important thread of it. because a lot of the information that danchenko got he got from a clinton operative. to be fair to charles dolan, who is the one who has been identified as the person who is described in the indictment, it looks like he-- dandenko took bits and pieces from what he got from dolan and by the time he and steele finished with it and in the dossier, it was explosive information when what he was given was not explosive information. but i think the most important thing, as far as the public is concerned and what we should be taking away from this is when the fbi goes to the fisa court to get a warrant because it's not a normal criminal case where some day the defense lawyers will get to look at what they did, the only due process an american ever gets is when the bureau goes to the
judge because there's no proceedings after that. and the problem here is what they bring to the court is supposed to be what they call a verified application, which means they're supposed to corroborate the information before they go to court and here, even though danchenko is the main source, they don't talk to him until four months after they're in court when they're on their way to getting the second 90-day warrant. so you have the problem of the information in the dossier is on its face outlandish and then they didn't do the basic things that you're supposed to do to corroborate information before you bring it to a judge. molly: and we have wonder if democrats are concerned as we begin to see some indictments coming and what durham's next move will be. andy mccarthy, thank you for joining us and sharing your insights. >> my pleasure, thanks. molly: crocking-- cracking down on out of control

>> the federal aviation administration has referred 37 unruly passengers to the fbi for potential criminal prosecution amid a sharp rise in incidents on flights this year. fox news senior correspondent laura engle has more. >> hey, griff, unruly passengers are no longer banned from the airlines they cause problems with. passengers who threaten violent behavior could receive civil penalties and prosecution. the f.a.a. reporting this week it's referred nearly 40 cases of passengers behaving badly since august to the fed after disruptions began to soar this year. the agency working with the justice department saying it's developed a process to continuously hand over a list

what witnesses are describing is a terrifying -- incident, a crowd of 50,000 people here for a two-day music festival. and when travis scott took the stage a little after nine, the crowd started surging forward to the stage. witnesses said they had a hard time breathing. and when some people started passing out, it was a nightmare trying to get them out or even get help in. but then, around 9:30, things got worse. one witness said it was like watching a general -- jenga tower tall over. >> i witnessed somebody unconscious struggling to get help. people weren't caring enough to, like, make a path. even if you wanted to get out, it was a struggle because it's you and then person next to you wanted to have fun. the person across wanted -- it
was everybody for themselves. >> reporter: an investigation is now underway to figure out what caused that deadly surge that claimed the lives of eight people. officials say more than 300 people were treated at a field hospital throughout the day, 17 taken to the hospital. and of those, 11 were in cardiac arrest and had to have cpr enroute to the hospital. one of the victims is just 10 years old. >> our hearts are broken. i mean, people go to these events looking for a good time, a chance to unwind, to make memories. it's not the kind of event you go to where you expect to find out about fatalities. >> reporter: day two of this festival has been canceled, but investigators are asking anyone who saw what happened or has video to send them in to police, help them figure out exactly what happened here.
we are expecting an update from officials this afternoon around 3 p.m. local time and, of course, we'll keep you updated. griff: garrett tenney live in houston, thank you. for more on this tragedy in houston, let's turn to fox news contributor, civil rights attorney and former d.c. police detective ted williams. ted the, what do you make of what has happened? you heard there from garrett tenney reporting that the authorities are asking for these videos, asking for any inpulmoput on what happened. -- input on what happened. >> yeah, griff, this is certainly a sad turn of events at an enjoyable festival there in houston. first, i would like to offer my condolences to the families of the eight that have died or that have been confirmed as being dead there in houston. but i would have to believe, griff, that they're going to have to treat this as a criminal investigation.
from what we've been told, there were 50,000 people in this venue. and you have to ask yourself the question, how -- what kind of security did they have in place. were there fire marshals involved. there are just so many question marks that have to be asked and answered in regards to this incident. i can tell you, griff, that in november of 2019 at a travis scott concert there in houston, there was another stampede in which individuals were injured. so clearly, i think the authorities should have been on notice of the possibilities of this kind of incident. griff: clearly, there's a liability component here particularly if there was a precedent. but you think about the possible criminal charges, what would be a criminal charge? what would that look like? how do they determine in a group of 50,000 who to charge?
>> well, what they're going to have to do is to work backwards, griff. they're going to try to get as many videos as they possibly can to try to determine what, in fact, was the cause of this incident. did someone say something that caused the stampede. did someone do something that caused the tam period. stampede. all of those things have to be looked at or they have to determine was the venue itself with 50,000 people there, should that have happened. so i've seen in the past and you have also because you and i have covered a lot of these, griff, where promoters themselves have been charged in these kinds of incidents. griff: good point. and you and i are old enough, ted, to remember back in 1989 overseas at that soccer match, liverpool, you had some 90 something people lost their lives. it was a terrible situation, and
they had built these pens to separate fans. they thought they had a solution. obviously, it did the not work, and we actually, if we look back in the history in 1979, there was a big who concert where people lost their lives. back then they determined what they should do is not have fest call seating, not have -- festival seating, not have general admission. do you think, ted, as they examine what happened, charges aside, that it will change, perhaps, concert venues and what promoters can do in terms of the audience they're able to hold? >> griff, there's always that possibility. i think you're going to see a lot of monday morning, excuse me, quarterbacking here to try to determine what should happen in these large vep -- venues when they're having these large con effort ises. but -- converts. but because in november of 2019 they were aware that there could
have been incidents of this nature, you would have thought that in houston they would have taken additional precautions. and that's certainly going to be part of the investigation going forward. griff: all right. ted williams, we will keep up with you on this investigation. as you and i know, these cell phone videos may be key to it. ted, thank you very much. molly? >> my pleasure. ♪ molly: with political pressure building to show they can get something done, democrats took a historic procedural vote before finally passing the $1.2 trillion infrastructure spending bill. we have lucas tomlinson who's joining us live from delaware where president biden is spending the weekend with more on how things are shaping up. >> reporter: good afternoon, molly. president biden is calling this a once in a generational opportunity to fix the country's aging infrastructure. the bill wouldn't have passed without republican support. >> for all of you at home who
feel left behind and forgotten this an economy that's changing so rapidly, this bill is for you. the vast majority of the thousands of jobs that will be created don't require a college degree. this is a blue collar blueprint to rebuild america, and it's long overdue. >> reporter: here's what's in the will. $110 billion for roads, bridges and transformational projects, $89.9 billion for public transit, $66 billion for railways, $65 billion for clean energy transmission and another $65 billion to expand access to high-seed internet. the bill passed 228-206 late last night, just before midnight. 13 republicans voted for it, 6 democrats vote against it. so-called squad led by alexandria ocasio-cortez led the way, recall that democrats only have a 3-vote majority in the house. democrats' progressive wing had blocked the infrastructure bill for months to force a vote on the other massive bill, that
social spending bill, which will now come after congress returns the week of november 15th. but republicans are firing back today the saying this infrastructure bill is not what's been advertised. >> the we're going to do infrastructure, let's do infrastructure. less than 10% of it, $110 billion, goes to, quote, surface transportation. and of that, $70 with is public mass transit leaving 3 or 4% to go to roads and bridges, traditional things that americans, you know, really desperately need in their communities. >> reporter: president biden says americans will start to feel the if effects of the infrastructure bill in the next 2-3 months. molly? molly: lucas tomlinson, thank you. griff? ♪♪ griff: well, supply chain strangled by trucking shortages, add rising inflation, and this could add up to be one of the most expensive high school day season -- holiday seasons ever.
charles watson is lye in savannah, georgia, with the latest. hi, charles. >> reporter: hi, griff. there's certainly plenty of frustrations here at the savannah port. you know, they've been trying to to get goods in and out to where they should be quickly, but with so many supply chain challenges clashing at once, it's a hard task. one of the wig issues being -- big issues being a lack of space to hold all of the new and back dated cargo often showing up to the savannah port at the same time. reports the ships sit off the coast for days until the port finds space to unload the cargo on the ships. bad news, of course, for hearn manufacturers who according to the institute of supply management are waiting a record 92 days to get the raw materials they need to assemble their products. we spoke to the manager of a trucking company here in savannah who tells us she's got the people to move containers, but logistical issues including
broken chassis are further slowing operations at the port. >> they go and go into the port where the turn time normally takes an hour to an hour and 15, it's taking 4-5 hours to get one container out. it's extremely frustrating. most of my guys would be able to the turn today, we're lucky if we get five out now. >> reporter: and the georgia ports authority believes it has a fix there for that, recently g a contract that would outsource some of the port's operations to a newly-formed company called gateway terminals which will handle container term untilessings -- terminals, truck gates. it would also add space for an curl 1.2 million 20-foot containers by 2022. but for now, the port is working through the backlog and seeing some improvement mainly in containers sitting at the port. that number has decreased by at least 60% from this time last
month. griff? griff: charles watson, braving a downpour in savannah, georgia, for us. charles, thank you. molly? molly: a lot of moving pieces there. joining us now to discuss the economic implications of inflation complicated by the supply chain crisis is former chief economist at the u.s. international trade commission ask and university of maryland professor peter morici. thank you so much for joining us on this saturday. a lot to talk about. let's kick off with sort of the things that we're seeing happening on the ground here in washington. president biden has been touting those solid jobs numbers when hay came out and now also -- they came out and also the passage of the infrastructure bill. there's $42 billion for airports and ports, there's some money in there that theoretically would help move things from place to place. your thoughts on where we stand right now in the midst of supply chain crisis. >> well, nothing can be done immediately in terms of the technology of the ports, but our ports are lagging.
they're not as automated as they could be. in cases, union contracts have something to do with that. the local governments also limit what you can do. in the video you just showed, you saw containers stacked 6 or 8 i high. at the port of long beach, it's limited to 2, and they made a special crisis. you can't build warehouses and the necessary machinery to move products around. and so we've got a lot of local resistance to modernizing our ports, a lot of union resistance. and i'd like to see mr. biden try to cut through all of that because the president can make a difference in areas like that. molly: let's talk about what we're facing here, the holidays just around the corner. that's what a lot of americans are are thinking about, they're feeling kind of threatened, will they be able to get the things they'd like to have, and some of the things on those containers are probably holiday-specific. toy manufacturers are saying a 6-8 week delay, consumer
electronics in short supply, and 71% of voters have noticed out of stock on the shelves, we all have something we went looking for, and it just wasn't there. what would you say to the average consumer who's very concerned about this? >> i think the trick is to get out and shop early if you're going to do -- shop online, you should be doing it now, you know, not the end of november. you know, to plan ahead, effectively, and to have -- to think broadly in terms of what you're going to give your relatives and friends for gifts. have several options in mind because, simply, there might not be enough on the schells because they can't get them in the country. they're is stacked up in china. the other thing is not just the shipping. there are factories that are shutting down in asia because of covid, workers that won't go to work, governments that are shutting down and quarantining. so it's the very random s and it's not something you can generalize about too easily. molly: when you talk about the shipping containers and these goods made overseas, is there a silver lining here in america? is time for us to once again
take stock of where we're getting the things that we need? >> well, yes. for the last four or five decades, i've heard nothing but just in time the, wage arbitrage, you know, costs create global webs for manufacturing. what we've learned from all of this is it's very brittle. it's easily broken birdies corruption in places, and it only takes one nail, one shoe, one horse, one cannon, and the battle is lost, so to speak. well, businesses are rethinking that. they're starting to bring supply chains back home. and, you know, with the kind of automation we have today, the wage advantage they have in asia with wages also rising there means that production could be brought back home if people start or thinking about it. so my hope is, is that -- and we're starting to see some focus in that direction -- start bringing the production back here. after all, we buy it here, why not make it here? molly: peter morici, thank you so much. we still these those american truck drivers too to get it from

♪ molly: thousands of migrants continue to make their way through mexico as biden responds to new questions about possible payments to migrant families separated at the border. steve harrigan is live in del rio, texas, with the latest on this. steve. >> reporter: molly, there have been multiple explanations and attempts to explain from the biden administration just what the policy is on payments to migrants. on wednesday president biden dismissed as bashage reports -- garbage reports beginning in the "wall street journal" there could be payments of up to $450,000 to migrant families who were separated at the border under the trump administration. two days later, the white house changing taxes saying the president was, in fact, comfortable with payments to migrant families, but no specific amount given. just a short time ago, fox's own david spunt pressed president biden on where he stands on payments to migrants who cross into the u.s. illegally.
>> reporter: you said last week that this report about migrant families at the border getting payments was garbage -- >> no, i didn't say that. get it straight. i said everybody coming across the border gets 500, $450,000 -- >> reporter: the number was what you had a problem with. >> now, here's the thing. if, in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration you coming across the border whether it was legal or illegal ask you lost your child, you lost your child, he's gone, you deserve some kind of compensation no matter what the circumstance. what that will be, i have no idea. i have no idea. >> reporter: so with this third clarification of the week, it appears president biden is in favor of payments to migrants but has no idea as to the amount being paid. that amount could be tied, some estimates it could top potentially a billion dollars, but they say lawsuits could cost
even more than that. we're talking about numbers of more than 3,000 children and families separated from each other under the trump administration. the aclu launching a class action lawsuit in 2019 use accusing the u.s. of psychological trauma on both children and parents who were separated from each other. even the idea of any potential payments has already drawn sharp criticism from a number of republican lawmakers. molly, back to you. molly: steve harrigan, thank you. griff? griff: for more on the cry -- crisis at the border, we're joined by national border patrol council president brandon judd. brandon, i want to jump right in. you heard that clip in steve harrigan's report, the president scolding our own david spunt when he was clarifying that he's not looking to pay specifically $450,000, but yet alluding to the fact that fay intend to pay -- to pay someone.
>> let me first address what president biden said, is and i cannot tell you how upset i am. when he talks about outrageous behavior, the number of people he has let into this country. javier cuellar is dead. he will not be reunited with his children and his wife, and that was because president biden let in a man who claimed to be a 17-year-old child. we have people crossing the border every single day that we believe, as border patrol agents, we believe they are older than minor, than the minor age. yet this administration cons to let them -- continues to let them go, and that is outrageous. president trump drove illegal immigration to 45-year lows. he set this administration up for success. this administration got rid of all of those programs, and now we have complete and total cay gross at the border. see see large migrant caravans coming up through mexico all the
time,, and that's just what we see. what is crossing the border every single day, we have between 5-6,000 people crossing the border illegally, illegally, every single day. that's outrageous. i didn't have griff and, brandon, in your nearly 25 years in law enforcement working at the border, what impact will the message have that migrants believe that should they come and cross the border illegally, they could be financially compensated? is. >> it's just another magnet that is going to draw people to cross our borders illegally. public safety is extremely important to the american public. we just saw it in minneapolis. we saw it in seattle. public safety is important, and this president continues to ignore what the american public wants, continues to ignore or the safety and security of the children as drugs continue to flow into our country because criminal cartels are able to exploit the policies that this administration put in place are. it's just another magnet. anytime we talk about rewarding
people for violating our laws, we're inviting more people to cross our borders illegally. griff: as you know, i was just in the caravan a week ago. one of the journalists i was with was documenting it, he stayed a little longer, and this past week on november 4th, some of those migrants got into a physical confrontation with the mexican national guard near the traditional route that the a migrants took this 2019 to get across from eagle pass. you're seeing them right now, this is the footage that oscar shot. and really all the national guard did is let 'em pass. what does that tell you? what do you make of what you're seeing? >> what is happening is these people are emboldened. they're emboldened because our policies are telling them there's going to be no consequences to our laws. and that's carrying over into mexico. and that's why you're seeing these people completely and
totally disregard the laws of mexico as well. it's not just the united states, it's not just mexico, it's honduras, el salvador, peru, all these countries that people are working up through, they're ignoring their laws because they know that the law in the united states means nothing. and if it doesn't mean anything in the greatest country in the world, why would it mean thinking in mexico as well? that's what is so concerning about this chaos, about this border crisis. and the fact that this administration will not even define what is taking place on the border clearly shows that they don't care what's happening, they don't care about the american public. they want to only pander to their political base, and that's what they're doing. griff: brandon, you were talking about the president's comments, the outrageous behavior of the past administration. we were just showing on the ticker below the fact that there is more than a thousand children -- i reported in the caravan, 1256 children under the age of 7. there's 65 women pregnant, 3 of whom were eight months or more, i met them so this caravan and
this tragedy on a humanitarian level is something i've never seen, and i've been covering this for more than a decade. yet this administration wants to own a more compassionate approach. do they not understand? >> this is the least compassionate approach that i have ever seen in my 24 plus years in law enforcement. i've never seen anything like this. and what it does is it takes a toll on the border patrol agents. when we go out and we patrol the border and we come across these unaccompanied children, these 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, 5-year-olds, 7-year-olds, and they're by themselves and they're scared, they've been abused by these criminal cartels, and they're being abused simply because the policies here in the united states are inviting them to put themselves in the hands of these criminal organizations. this is inhumane. it's the most inhumane administration that i have ever seen as it pertains to border security. it's just flat out wrong. griff: brandon, as you're
looking live at our fox drone team flying over the rgv sector, ground zero, in just 15 seconds, talk of the provision in this next build back better bill. what impact would that havesome. >> again, that's just another magnet. anytime you talk about amnesty, you're going to see more and more people cross the border illegally. we cannot talk amnesty, we have to -- we always have to put the horse before the cart. griff: national border patrol council president brandon judd. brandon, thank you for taming tyke. molly? -- for time. molly? molly: an investigation into school safety after ignoring and belittling a father whose daughter was abused on campus, next. ♪ ♪
claims in their virginia schools. let's go to our reporter, alexandria hoff, who has the latest on this. >> reporter: the superintendent announced he believes all an man story reporting protocols were followed, but to be sure, they have an outside law firm conducting this investigation. superintendent scott ziegler refers to this review as, quote, only one step this moving forward to help heal our school community. the loudoun county school district in virginia has been in the spotlight this year for heated debates over curriculum and school policies. that all came to a head this fall after it was revealed that a teen girl reported being raped in a bathroom by a male wearing a skirt. the loudoun county school district reported the assault to the sheriff's office. meanwhile, that male student enrolled in another high school in the district where he was once again accused of sexual salt. in that first case, a juvenile court judge found him guilty, the second is still penning. last month -- penning.
last month ziegler issued an apology. >> my heart aches for you, and i am sorry we failed to provide the safe, welcoming and affirming environment we aspire to provide. >> reporter: the new governor-elect, glenn youngkin, made a major push for parents to have a say over what happens in schools. he accused the district of covering up the first assault report. youngkin has also called on the loudoun county school board and superintendent to resign. molly? molly: alexandria, thank you. well, exit olds show to the economy -- polls show the economy and jobs before the top factors in this week's election. some are motivated by critical race here to and police reform. joining us now to discuss is independent women's voice senior policy analyst kelsey bolar and rebel communications ceo laura fang. ladies, thanks so much for joining me on a saturday
afternoon. what we really want to talk about are the upcoming midterms. republicans are predicting a red wave as we get closer to those midterms by the day. pretty soon we'll start to hear more candidates coming forward in the9 days and weeks ahead. but to use this overused analogy, the canary in the coal mine for the democrats. what do you think they were really trying to say to democrats, laura? >> well, i think the lesson is, number one, we've got to change the environmentals. people have to start feeling better about the economy, and we saw progress late last night with the infrastructure bill moving forward, nancy pelosi and president biden moving that forward, and and it looks like there's going to be success with the commitment from moderates. really with the absence of -- on the legislative agenda, what fills the void? crt, fears. same fears, by the way, that president trump and the republicans tried to stoke in 2020. now with tiers about the economy
and dissatisfaction about the pandemic, they landed, those planes landed. that said, when the weather changes, if the economy gets better as it looks like with that jobs report it is improving, look for democrats to do better because they'll be able to talk about infrastructure, childcare and, ultimately, jobs and things americans really care about. molly: kelsey, it's a little risky for democrats to be too dismissive of things like concerns parents have brought forward when it comes to education, when it comes to crt as they look ahead to the midterms. >> right. what happened in virginia wasn't a case of republicans stoking fear regarding what's happening in our public education system here, it was a case of sincere concerns amongst parents, and the democrats' local school boards constantly denying them. we heard president obama go as far as to accuse parents of fake outrage when we know now there
are very real repercussions of these instances whether they regard students' physical safety here in virginia when they are going to school or whether it involves what they are being taught and exposed to inside the classroom. and the longer that democrats continue to be this denial about these concerns and not just be in denial, but threaten to investigate parents who speak up at local school boards as domestic terrorists, call voters who vote for a change racist and white supremacist, the more at risk they're going to be as we head into the midterm elections and beyond. you know, this might be, bode well for republicans regarding the smearing of voters who voted for glenn youngkick as racists -- youngkin as racists, but it doesn't bode well for our civil society. molly: laura, when it comes to crt, there are a lot of reports
that argue it doesn't exist this virginia schools when, in fact, these parents who became very involved in their children's education as we're all zooming from home, they're seeing curriculum, activities and exercises, they're taking part in their children's education, so is it risky for republicans -- for democrats to not acknowledge parents and to be dismiss we've in a sense going forward? >> well, i mean, i don't -- i think, you know, aside there terry mcauliffe's gaffe, i don't think that's happening. i do think that you're correct, holly, crt doesn't exist this virginia schools which means those fears were stoked. this is an old playbook going back to lee atwater. in the 2016 election we saw it done about crime. oh, they're going to take away your -- they're going to build apartments in the suburbs, they're going to destroy the suburbs. this type of fear mongering is how republicans traditionally shepherd white well back into the fold when hay stray to the democratic side.
that is what was in play in virginia, and it will happen again. let's talk about one more environmental factor that benefited republicans which may not exist in 2020. they needed president trump to stay off of the stage -- molly: there's one more thing i want to get to -- >> so there were a lot of parents that would argue that crt was taught in virginia schools -- [inaudible conversations] >> toni nebraska morrison is not crt. molly: i want to move to the defund police issue as well because that seemed to have had an impact on tuesday. very quickly, did it have an imimpact on tuesday, and what are the messages going forward as various candidates start to make their play for the hid termsesome laura? >> well, i think all of those issues had an impact. you have to look at it and say, yes. that said, when you're having a conversation about the economy, about childcare, about the things that are going to help women and families like a mass e child tax credit to help middle class families pay for that expensive childcare, when you talk about career paths and jobs in the hundreds of thousands for
their children, then that's a conversation that's going to bring them back home to the democrats. if we're talking about these narrow issues, if we -- if that void is created, the democrats don't succeed, they create space for the conversation we saw this virginia. but we saw progress last night. i think you're going to see those two bills pass and the conversation be very different a year from now -- molly: kelsey, on that defund police issue, laura's arguing there's other things the democrats are going to want to focus on. your thoughts what it meant for the democrats from this last election, moving forward. >> defund police has been a massive movement that the left has championed. and it's -- this whole time they've been living out an alternative the reality. we though that this is not a popular policy among voter, specifically voters who it threatens to have the most impact on living in inthey are cities. they want more police, not less. i think it's yet another example
of the left not listening to voters and going ahead with their far-left, progressive policies that are threatening our economy and americans are waking up to it. we're being gaslit by the left telling us these policies aren't really affecting us. i can tell you as a virginia mom, these things are happening in our very backyard. it's having an impact. voters are waking up to it and, you know, that spells trouble for democrats moving forward. molly: kelsey, laura, thank you both for joining me this saturday afternoon, appreciate it. >> thank you. griff: molly, as more americans plan to fly for the holidays, will a new crackdown on unruly behavior make the skies friendlier for travelers? next. ♪ ♪ packed with protein plus 21 vitamins and minerals we nourish them with carnation breakfast essentials. because today could change everything.

you're an army veteran, served in iraq. what are your thoughts this coming veterans day and particularly as it relates to hiring our heroes? >> thanks so much for having me. i think there's a couple of things that veterans never really get rid of. one of those being their dedication to service, and the other being the desire to do good in the world. so for me, being able to tell veterans about this amazing program that hiring our heroes has made available, i was able to take part in a fellowship program which offered me 12 weeks of a paid fellowship to be able to pivot my career from time in human resources to a technology career. so for me to be able to tell other veterans, transitioning military and also military spouses that these opportunities are out there for them is really invaluable, because it gave me the opportunity to change hi life and pivot my career into
something that i'm really enjoying doing right now. griff: eric, tell us about this program and why you did it, why you started it. >> well, you know, the u.s. chamber of commerce started this program back in 2011 really to address the national crisis of veteran unemployment. we hosted over 800 hiring events in the first three years, but as we've grown as an organization, we've also found that veterans and military spouses are strategic assets that businesses can't get enough of from a work force perspective. so we started to really leverage our broad reach across communities, across bases to really help service members like jerilyn, this and military spouses get the training, get the skillet sets concern skill sets, get the connections with employers to help them find those long-term, meaningful careers they so richly deserve. griff: talk to me about the challenges, everyone is having
challenges coming out of this pandemic, but specifically for veterans that are trying to transition to use their skill sets after their monorabble is service. talk to -- honorable service. talk to me about the challenge veterans are facing in finding jobs. >> yeah, so i think it is a challenge sometimes for veterans to be able to really explain how the skills that they've acquired in the military, how those translate into a very valuable skill set for organizations. programs like hiring our heroes helps set veterans up for success by helping them translate those skills. and once again, giving them the opportunity to be a part of fellowships where they get hands-on training in real world situations. so you can step out of that knellship with a full-time -- fellowship with a full-time effort like i did with hi company, or you can find employment at another, another company. that sees the value that we as veterans and military spouses bring to communities.
griff: eric, you can see the web site, hiring our heroes.org. in just the 20 seconds we've got left, what's next for this program? how will you continue to help the veterans? >> well, we're going to continue working on those that these the host help, and so our underrepresented communities, but importantly, let's not forget about our military spouses on veterans day and the hard work and their sacrifice. during the pandemic they hit a high of 38% unemployment, so we have a lot of work to do on that front, and we're committed to making that happen. griff: we've got to leave it there. hiring our heroes.org. thank you for your service. that's all the time we've got there, and that's all the time for these two hours.
