u need it. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ eric: well now it's up to the democrats' next move, a pending vote on president biden's historic social spending measure, that will come in the next week or so, this as he is set to sign the historic $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that the house passed on friday night. the president is praising the package as a way for our country to rebuild and stay competitive with other nations like china. p republicans are slamming the amount of spending. can the president's party overcome its divisions to pass the even bigger social spending package that's round two.
9:01 am
hello, welcome to flawrve. "fox newslive." i'm eric shawn. arthel: hello, everyone. i'm arthel neville. according to official political analysis, it wasn't pretty. still the friday night lights showed a win for president biden and his plan for the country, speaker nancy pelosi unhooked the infrastructure bill from the larger spending package and 13 republicans helped get it past. passed. here's white house chief of staff, ron klain. >> i do think the voters sent a message on tuesday, they wanted to see more action in washington, wanted to see things move more quickly and three days later congress responded passing the president's infrastructure bill but a lot of work went into getting us there over the past few months. i don't think the election along put it over the line. what put it over the lines was president biden starting back in april putting it before the country, working with democrats and republicans in the senate. arthel: lucas tomlinson is live
9:02 am
in delaware where the president is spending the weekend. >> reporter: good afternoon, arthel. the president's will next turn to the other massive spending bill, the social spending bill. one of his top advisors thinks there's enough votes to pass it. >> we're optimistic we're going to get it done and the truth is we need to get it done, we need to get it done. the 17 nobel prize winning economists said it will ease inflationary pressures, help with the supply chain and i vest in human capital in this country all at one time. >> reporter: after passing 1 infrastructure bill, up next, getting the rest of the president's massive economic agenda passed. senators joe manchin and kyrsten sinema will likely play leading roles and will be the deciding votes in the upper chamber, a $2 trillion social spending bill looms when congress returns later this month. the more than 2,000 page bill contains new spending on
9:03 am
healthcare, education, the climate and new tax laws. many republicans are weary of the price tag and think it could cost the american taxpayer much more. >> they were at 1 point of 75. now -- 1.75. now they're over $4 trillion. that happened tuesday. they're going to come back before thanksgiving and try to cram this through, at least through the house. it will then have to come to the senate and we're going to do everything we can to stop it dead in its tracks. >> reporter: that $4 trillion estimate comes from the economists at wharton. some critics are worried about inflation. arthel. arthel: thanks, lucas. >> there is absolutely nothing radical about investment in infrastructure. infrastructure has long been a bipartisan priority. it was voted on in a bipartisan way in both the house and the senate. and getting an infrastructure bill done and getting an investment in infrastructure of this size was a goal of
9:04 am
president trump. eric: that's california congresswoman sarah jacobs, a democrat, stressing the bipartisan nature of the infrastructure bill vote. six members of the progressive democratic so-called squad, they voted against it and only 13 republican house members backed it. our next guest was not one of them. he says it will cost american taxpayers just too much. congressman jay openopi, serves on the house budget committee. you're on the budget committee, that means you know budgets and the cost of things. we all have to do a household budget. what do you object so strongly about this bill? >> well, i think households across america are already suffering the effects of inflation. everything from the cost of commodities like bread and meat to the cost of gasoline, my constituents are paying over $20 more to fill the gas tank in their car to go to work than they were a year ago of everyone across america is feeling these effects. any economist will tell you that
9:05 am
deficit spending is dangerously inflationary. that's why we're sew wary about enacting what will be the largest spending package in the history of our country without getting a score on how much the spending will cost from the congressional budget. eric: the president says this will lower inflation. do you buy that? >> no. actually. this is part of the disagreement that we're having in congress is the majority is saying, hey, look, the joint committee on taxation has scored this and it's going to not cost a dollar. it's not going to add a dollar to the deficit. and unfortunately we know that this is a partisan committee. this is the joint committee which means the senate and the house of together, the majority controls both so they're relying on a score that they themselves wrote. whereas we've got the wharton analysis released last week that says that at a minimum this will increase the minimum by over $300 billion and in the programs that are enacted in the package do not sunset as scheduled and we know that they rarely do they
9:06 am
will add owe over two and-a-half trillion dollars to the deficit. that's a stunning number and illustrates just the gulf between what the democrats are saying and what we believe. eric: the democrats keep on saying it's zero cost. the president says he's not increasing taxes on people who make over $400,000. this will be zeroed out. so you're saying that's not true at all. >> no. and what we're saying basically is, look, it would be -- withoutwaiting for the congrl budget office to do its job and score the cost of the bill. our rules require it. the congressional budget act of 1974 requires the cbo to score bills like this and house rule 13 our own rule in the house of representatives requires us to wait for the score before we vote. wall we're saying is let -- all we're saying is let's wait for the score. no score, no vote.
9:07 am
and president biden, if you say that this will not add a single dollar to the deficit, then prove it. the way you prove it, is you wait for the score. eric: the president says it's going to create jobs and massive spending in terms of programs and private jobs, he said yesterday we should start seeing that about two months from now. let's take a look at some of what the bill does. it provides billions of dollars for roads and bridges and funding for public transit, rail funding, clean energy, high speed internet. rural areas need that. of course you've got the climate change issues. sewers, electric grid. look, how do we stay competitive with china? how do we keep up with what those other nations are doing when some of our bridges and roads are falling apart and some people out in the rural areas of the country can't get broadband. the democrats say we need to stay competitive and this is the way to do it. >> i think we all agree we need to stay competitive. what we disagree on is what the definition of infrastructure is. so talking about broadband for a
9:08 am
moment, when you talk about building broadband infrastructure, had that is infrastructure. if you're subsidizing people purchasing broadband, that is not infrastructure. if you talk about electric vehicles, charging stations, yes, infrastructure. purchase subsidies for electric vehicles, not infrastructure. this is the gulf between what conservatives believe and what progressives believe in terms of the social spending that's going to keep us competitive internationally. eric: speaking of progressives, i mean, the squad, ilhan omar and ocasio-cortez, i mean, look, they voted against it. i mean, that was kind of surprising. they don't think that it's enough. >> yes. and you know what, if i was a moderate democrat, i would be furious. even after the moderates bent over backwards, gave the progressives everything they wanted, even after they were forced to sign that humiliating letter, adds mitting even after the cbo scores it, if the score
9:09 am
doesn't match, they'll continue to work on it, even after all of that, the progressives and the squad voted against the bill. if i were a moderate, i would take that as permission to vote against the reconciliation bill. i would. eric: someone's calling you, telling you that they see you on tv tell them to hold on. finally just for a quick second, the president yesterday wrapped up his news conference saying that we should see some of the results of this bill in the next few months and he said he has the interest of the american people at heart. here's the president talking about that. >> i really had faith in the american people. i know they're divided. i know how mean it can get. i know there are extremes on both ends that that make it more difficult than it's been in a long, long time but i'm convinced and let the american people know they that we're committed to enhancing their ability to make their way. eric: does this enhance the ability of the american people to live a better life or are you
9:10 am
more concerned about the implications, the consequences of it? >> well, the wharton analysis says it does not. the wharton analysis says it actually diminishes our gdp and that's what i think the american public want, they want prices and inflation to get under control, they want good paying jobs. they want to be able to go to the grocery store and buy their thanksgiving dinner at about the same price they paid last year and they want a shot at the american dream and unfortunately this socialist spending package that the democrats are pushing does not put us down that path. it puts us down a path that failed all over the world where socialism takes over and fiscal discipline takes over. eric: congressman, he represents the great state of california, good to see you thank you for joining us on "fox news live" today. arthel. arthel: well, eric, the biden administration has until 5:00 p.m. tomorrow to respond to a federal appeals court putting the president's vaccine mandate
9:11 am
for large companies on hold. the ruling came yesterday in one of multiple red state lawsuits against the mandate. alexandria huff is live in in washington with the latest. hi, alexandria. >> reporter: hi, arthel. the biden administration plans to fight the ruling which came out of the fifth circuit court of appeals in louisiana. the state's attorney general praised the decision, writing wg president will not impose the mandate without the checks and balances accorded by the cons constitution. the ruling halts the requirement for workers with more than 100 employees that was set to go into place january fourth with fines for companies that don't comply. >> employers were gearing up for the mandate. this does give them probably some extra time. it depends on how the courts rule after this. most employers are grateful for that extra time because there's a lot that's involved in operationalizing this. >> reporter: so far, the attorneys general in 11 states
9:12 am
have filed lawsuits challenging the president's covid vaccine requirement. on friday, kansas' democratic governor came out against the mandate, in a statement she said this, quote, i don't believe this directive is the director the most effective solution for kansas. the biden administration plans to fight this decision, citing past rulings in favor of the requirement. >> if osha can tell people to wear a hard hat on the job, be careful around chemicals, it can put in place simple measures to keep our workers safe. >> reporter: when the u.s. surgeon general was asked if the mandate could be extended to smaller companies in the future, he said, quote, nothing is off the table. arthel. arthel: alexandria huff, thank you. and we're going to have more on the biden vaccine mandate with former arkansas governor mike huckabee a little later in the newscast. eric: well, houston police are opening a criminal probe into the horrific tragedy at the music festival that turned deadly friday night. eight people were killed.
9:13 am
apparently crushed to death when the crowd surged towards the stage. 50,000 people were there. now at least one security guard says that he was stuck with what they think was a syringe, that syringe may have contained drugs. eric tenney live in houston with the latest on this unfolding situation. garrett. >> reporter: yeah, eric. this is now a criminal investigation and officials say at this point they're not taking anything off the table including the possibility that drugs may have been involved. investigators are aware of at least several instances during the show where medical personnel treated fans with a medication for opioid overdose including one incident involving a security officer. >> we do have a report of a security officer, according to the medical staff, that was out and treated him last night, that he was reaching over to restrain or grab a citizen and he felt a
9:14 am
prick in his neck. when he was examined, he went unconscious, they administered narcan. he was revived and the medical staff did notice a prick that was similar to a prick that you would get if somebody's trying to inject. >> reporter: it's too early to say what kind of role if any this played in the stampede itself, though, since dozens of folks who were there talked about how hard it was for anyone to breathe, given how tightly packed everyone was as the crowd pushed forward. this story has just become all the more heart breaking as we learned how young the victims are. the youngest were 14 and 16 years old and the others were in their early to mid-20s. as of last night, 13 people were still in the hospital and of those five are under the age of 18. rapper travis scott who organized the music festival and
9:15 am
was on stage when the stampede occurred. posted a video saying he is devastated by what happened. >> you know my fans, my fans like -- my fans really mean the world to me and i always just really want to leave them with a positive experience. any time i can make out anything that's going on, i stop the show and help them get the help they need, you know. i could just never imagine the severity of the situation. >> reporter: here outside the music festival, a makeshift memorial started to form as folks also line up to go back inside the concert grounds to see if any of their belongings that got lost in the madness friday night were recovered. we are expecting to get another update on the investigation sometime later today and we'll of course keep you updated on what we learn about that. eric: a night of celebration and joy that turns so horribly tragic. garrett, thank you.

eric: it turns out there will likely be some type of payment to migrants whose families were
9:20 am
separated by the trump administration. the aclu and others are suing the federal government as a result of those trump administration policies. reports say the white house was considering shelling out as much as $450,000 to each migrant. president biden says they do deserve compensation but he does not say how much. >> that's for the justice department to decide. if it shows that it saves taxpayers money, if it rights a wrong and the justice department determines there is compensation that should be paid, that is an independent justice department. eric: steve harrigan live on the border covering the situation there. he's in del-rio, texas with the latest on all of this. hi, steve. >> reporter: eric, that debate over potential payments to migrant families who crossed over into the u.s. illegally under the trump administration and whose families were separated continues and it is really heating up. the biden administration officials say that there will
9:21 am
likely be payments but how much those payments are is really up to the justice department to determine. here's an exchange from fox news sunday. >> we don't talk dollar amounts. that is the department of justice. the question about whether it is an incentive to come across to the united states to be separated from your child so that you can get paid is an absurd assumption. >> there will be a settlement and from this administration, that dollar amount to be determined, am i clear on that? >> no. i want to be clear about this. we do not tell the department of justice what to do. the department of justice is an independent agency. >> reporter: as that debate continues, more migrants continue to cross over here into texas each day. fox news went along with officers from the department of public safety in texas as part of operation lone star. they detained a number of men who were on private property on
9:22 am
a ranch. only one of those men decided to run. it turns out he was a relatively well-known gang member with a long criminal history. the officers examined his tattoos before transporting him. back to you. eric: all right, steve. thank you. arthel. arthel: thank you. for more on this right now brandon judd joins us, he's the president of the national border patrol council. brandon, thanks for being here. now, before i get your take on how the president is handling this payout controversy, i want to know, is there a lesson about immigration policy and procedure that's being overlooked? i mean, while cracking down on illegal immigration, separating children from parents, can't can happen again. or we end up trying to ward off lawsuits. is there a take-away? what is it. >> this is a really simple issue and can be solved overnight. it can be solved with the striking of a pen. the problem is, is any time we
9:23 am
release people into the united states pending a hearing that they're not going to show up to, we're going to have tons of people cross our borders illegally. it's that magnet that draws people here and as long as that magnet exists, people are going of to continue to come. if we hold people in custody, pending a deportation or asylum hearing, people stop coming. that was proven under the migrant protection protocols. this administration unfortunately did away with everything that president trump did that was in fact beneficial to border security and because they did away with all of that, they opened the flood gates and we're in the biggest crisis we've ever seen as far as border security goes. arthel: given that some of the things former president trump did were effective, i was asking about what wasn't effective and that was the separation of migrant families. but let me continue so you can finish your thoughts on that. i mean, there obviously needs to be a clear message that you do not get a payday if you cross
9:24 am
the border illegally. however, if you disagree with the $450,000 payment or whatever it's going to be to separated migrants, should the u.s. make good on what turned out to be a disastrous deterrent. >> that's going to be for the courts to decide. but let's be clear. we wouldn't be discussing this if president biden wouldn't have called the report garbage several days ago. all he had to do was be forth coming to the american public and he wasn't forth hadcoming to them. the dollar amount might be different but the fact remains, there were -- they are in discussion for payments to these families and president biden could have come out and he could have told the american public that and he didn't. arthel: and so that's my point, you know, there is -- i guess they're trying to ward off lawsuits. so that's what i'm asking you. you're an expert in this as the be president of national border patrol council. how do you avoid getting here in the first place? >> yeah. i'm concerned with anything that this administration says right now simply because they haven't
9:25 am
been forthcoming. they're not telling the american people how many people are released into the united states or how many people are crossing the border illegally or how many people we take into custody every day have criminal records. they're not forthcoming with the american public and the american public has a right to know exactly what is happening and until the administration is in fact forthcoming with all these things, we have reason to be atthis -- skeptical on anything they tell us pertains to border security and the payouts to families, the family separation, let's be clear. families get separated all the time. if i shoplift in target and a i have a child with me and the officer takes me into custody, they will take the child away from me for that period of time. the reunification process he's has to take place and a lot of families that haven't been
9:26 am
reunified with their children, they haven't come forward to claim those children. there's a lot that isn't being reported properly and the mainstream media continues to try to make it an issue and point the finger at president trump, when in reality, when we look at his policies, he drove illegal immigration to 45-year lows. we were able to go after the criminal cartels, go after the criminality, try to stop the drugs from coming into the united states because the illegal immigration were driven to 45-year lows. now we have this explosion and it's simply caused by biden policies. arthel: you're right, it's a complex situation. i want to ask you, is the trump administration stay in mexico policy the answer? are there other layers needed to fortify sustainable closure to illegal border crossings? >> it's one of the answers. the clear answer is simply you must hold people in custody pending any sort of immigration proceeding. whether that's asylum, whether that's he deportation.
9:27 am
they must be held in custody. if we release them, if the catch and release program is perpetuated, we're going to see illegal immigration explode. that's exactly what has happened. arthel: and do we have the resources to do that very thing you're saying. >> we do. arthel, what we saw under the migrant protection protocols -- everybody's going to say it costs too much to hold people in custody. the moment you start doing that, people stop coming. all we have to do is hold the initial people that crossed the border illegally, hold them in custody. now people won't be willing to give cartels thousands of dollars if they know they're going to be deported back to their country. they're going to stop coming. it's going to be a net positive to the federal government as far as money goes because we're not going to be in the same situation over and over and over again. arthel: you're saying pay the money upfront, have the resources to secure the border or you pay on the backend which could be worse. brandon judd, thank you very
9:28 am
much. >> thank you. arthel: eric. eric: arthel, a federal court, have you heard about this, stopping president biden's vaccine mandate for private companies. republicans blasted it as government overreach but the administration says the mandates are legal and they will be upheld. we're going to ask former arkansas governor mike huckabee about that. there he is, standing by. the governor and the mandates when we come back. our retirement plan with voya, keeps us moving forward. hey, kevin! hey, guys! they have customized solutions to help our family's special needs... giving us confidence in our future... ...and in kevin's. voya. well planned. well invested. well protected. >> man: what's my safelite story? my my livelihood. so when my windshield cracked... the experts at safelite autoglass came right to me... with service i could trust. right, girl? >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪

arthel: city leaders in portland voted to cut millions from the police department after the protests following the death of mr. george floyd last year. now the city is facing a sharp rise in homicides and a severely understaffed department. christina coleman is in los angeles with more on this. christina. >> reporter: arthel, portland is dealing with a public safety cries sigh since the defund the police movement, the homicide rate is at an all-time high, police staffing a record low and
9:33 am
officer morale is down. take a listen to what portland police sergeant kevin allen told me about how the department shifted limited resources to investigate the city's mounting number of homicides. >> in the past year we've seen more p homicides than we have in our reported history. so we've transferred some investigative resources, mostly detectives, to homicide to try to keep up. but when you are robbing peter to pay paul, something suffers. >> reporter: thefts for robberies, four days ago thieves stole a truck with the owner clinging to the ladder mounted on the vehicle, the suspect was driving recklessly with the owner on the roof, streaming for help. police were able to arrest the suspect, another example of the brazen crimes committed in portland. the sergeant says criminals are emboldened because they know police might not respond for
9:34 am
hours due to a shortage in officers. >> right now the they're getting over 100 cases a month of robberies and they have five detectives. so you do matt had, there's a lot of cases that don't get you attention. >> reporter: since last year, more than $26 million has been cut from portland's police budget. 84 sworn positions have been eliminated. at least 160 officers left the department since last july, citing low morale and burnout. although portland pd is authorized to have 916 officers, they only have 788 on staff. portland's mayor is surging city leaders to approve $5 million for the police department. the police chief says 11 million of would be ideal to accommodate the city's public safety needs. arthel: christina coleman, live in logs angeles, thank you. >> they say socialism is when the government controls the
9:35 am
means of production. right now we've got a be president imposing vaccine mandates across america, telling job creators and business owners that the government knows better than they do. i'd call that control over your means of production, a clear and dangerous step into socialist governance. >> people thought we might be able to stop it, the government on steroids, overreach by the biden administration. this administration is out-of-control, steam rolling over constitutional norms, over the limitations on the executive branch. eric: those are some republicans on capitol hill, criticizing the president's covid vaccine mandate. this as the federal apeels court put out -- appeals court put it on hold, giving the government until 5:00 p.m. tomorrow to respond to a challenge to the regulation that workers at larger businesses can vaccinated by january 4th or they have to face mass requirements and submit to weekly coronavirus tests 59 work.
9:36 am
the biden administration says the law will eventually be upheld, the solicitor general saying the department of labor is confident in the authority to issue the emergency temporary standard on vaccination and testing, osha has the authority to act quickly in a situation where they find the workers are subject to a grave danger and a new standard is necessary the to protect them, so says the government. mike huckabee, former governor of arkansas joins us now. governor, 26 states including yours, arkansas, have filed suit against the mandate. what's your take about the mandate that is stopped at least for now. >> forgive the cynic in me, i wonder if it's such a grave danger, why are we waiting until january 4th. shouldn't it have been implemented yesterday? that's the first thing. i'm reminded of the scene in a few good men, when asked about a grave danger, he said is there any other kind? i don't know if there is any other kind. if it's a grave danger,
9:37 am
implement it immediately. why do it after christmas? why is it that because we have a very intense market that we're going to get through christmas and then we're going to impose what i do believe is unconstitutional. in part because you have bureaucrats making decisions outside of the legislative process. if we're not going to use the legislature, then let's send congress home. let's just quick wasting so much money on having them to meet year-round in washington. let the bureaucrats run the whole country. they darn near do it anyway. they shouldn't be doing it. that's why we elect people to the senate and house. they ought to be making these decision, not bureaucrats. eric: the surgeon general, you make a point, just said -- he defends the mandate as, quote, necessary. so one would think, look, 750,000 of our fellow americans have died, coronaviruses is still out there, people who were vaccinated tremendous number who are unvaccinated end up in the hospital and have died, and are
9:38 am
dying. at the same time, wouldn't you think there would be more of a warp speed so-to-speak to try and get something done on this? >> well, that's the whole point. but they seem to be more interested in the political science than in the medical science. eric, i've been vaccinated. i felt it was a great idea for me and i have no regrets whatsoever about that. and i think most people should be vaccinated. but here's the other thing they are not taking into consideration. we've got hundreds of thousands of americans, millions in fact, who have had covid. fact is, they're better protected than me according to all the studies that have come from places like israel where they've done an intense study that the people who have natural antibodies and immunity are better protected than the people who have the vaccine but there's no allowance for that and my question would be why not. if the issue is to protect us from covid, then we're going to be protected from natural antibodies. it seems like the issue is
9:39 am
making sure that somehow the government has control over every single americans. that's troubling. i wish it would be a troubling issue for people on the left and the right. because i don't care who is running the government, they don't need to be mandating things that they truly don't understand and in which they change their own rules every other week. eric: they also say those who have immunity have less immunity than if you get the vaccine at the same time but you do point out about government control. look, control, you've got polio, if you drive on the right side of the road, you're not allowed to drive on the left, you're going to have a head-on. there are regulation that's the government puts in for health purposes to protect public health. so some would say if you don't want to have a vaccine, fine, that's your right, but then wear a mask at work or agree to weekly testing. >> well, i think it's a little bit different when you say driving on the right side of the road because then you endanger other people who are abiding the law. if i'm vaccinated, the person
9:40 am
who is not vaccinated really is not a big threat to me. the covid issue is a threat to them for not getting vaccinated or not having antibodies. but i respect that people have a choice to do crazy things. i don't ride motorcycles and if i did, i certainly would use a helmet. but there are people who like to ride motorcycles and they don't like to use a helmet. and so we allow them to do that. people get to make some choice as americans. it's part of the liberty we enjoy. if we want to have the government being our mom and dad and kind of wet nurses through our entire adult lives, we're going to live a very different kind of experience than americans have up until now. eric: finally, i mean, is it okay from your point of view that either you get vaccinated or if you're not vaccinated that it is appropriate for government or your employer to tell you to wear a mask and submit to weekly testing? >> i think that's an employer decision. one thing i disagree with some
9:41 am
of my fellow americans about, i'm a free market guy and private sector guy, so if the employer makes this decision, i've got no problem with that. that's an employer's right to make. where i have a problem with it is when the government starts telling the employer to do something that is going to be very costly and cumbersome and a suddenly you have even additional cost hoisted upon that employer and right now people are barely making a living as it is. when they talk about the grave danger, is there a more grave danger than someone losing a job because some pencil neck bureaucrat in washington decided to just go completely all out and here's something i'd love an answer for. the other day rachel walensky, the head of cdc could not even tell us how many people in her own agency had been vaccinated. so it looks like if they're going to impose rules on private sector americans, they might want to start by imposing them
9:42 am
on the people in government bureaucracies. eric: i'm glad you're vaccinated. i'm vaccinated. just got my booster. and i would urge all of our viewers if you can to get vaccinated. this is a deadly pandemic that is not over yet. governor mike huckabee from little rock today, thank you, and thank you for your advice. >> thank you, eric. eric: of course. arthel. arthel: the trial of three young men charged with killing 25-year-old ahmad arbery is set to resume tomorrow. we have a live report from georgia coming up. it sure is. and i earn 5% cash back on travel purchased through chase with chase freedom unlimited. that means that i earn 5% on our rental car, i earn 5% on our cabin. i mean, c'mon! hello cashback! hello, kevin hart! i'm scared. in a good way. i'm lying. let's get inside.
