[laughter] ♪ >> the holiday shopping season officially on. shoppers spending money online and many stores. black friday shoppers not spooked by sticker shock as they generate nearly 30% more sales this year versus last, but the unknown of a new variant of covid-19 coming from southern africa has scared markets on friday and sparked travel the restrictions in the u.s. and around the globe. we're on the top of it all. welcome, everyone, i'm e. ward lawrence in for meehl -- edward lawrence in for neil cavuto.

new fears kicking off of an outbreak putting americans on edge. the president still on vacation in the home of a billionaire in nantucket, massachusetts. let's turn now to jacqui heinrich in that town. we saw the president yesterday, but what's he saying now about the new variant? >> reporter: hey, good morning to you, edward. despite holiday sales that were expected to climb at a record pace this year, national retail federation predicting up to 10.5% the global markets are reeling from the news of this new variant, and yesterday president biden announced travel restrictions from south africa and seven other neighboring countries will be imposed similar to those imposed by the u.k., more than a dozen other countries after they spoke with scientists about how fast new variant was spreading and also whether vaccines are effective against it. the president said the decision to hut down travel from south africa was made out of an abun
7:02 am
cannes of caution, but he -- abundance of caution, but he still spent afternoon shopping with his kids and grandkids. hehe also encouraged people to t vaccinated and booster shots. >> every american who's not been vaccinated should be responsible. number two, everyone eligible for the booster shot should get the booster shot. that is minimum everyone should be doing. i don't know, we always talk about -- i think it's patriotic responsibility. >> reporter: medical experts say the travel the restrictions will likely just slow down the spread, not contain it completely in part because the restrictions don't begin until monday. president biden said that was the advice of his medical team, and dr. apterny fauci -- anthony fauci tried to quell concerns virus could already be in the
7:03 am
u.s. >> of course anything's possible. there's no indication that there is right now. that's the reason why we're getting together with them to try and get the precise molecular makeup of it so you could actually test for it. and that's something that'll take a little bit to put the appropriate materials together to do that. but we are in very active communication with our south african colleagues, scientists. >> reporter: so today the president has no public events, but it's entirely possible he might wander out and shop around nantucket for small business saturday. he did release a statement yesterday talking about the importance of small businesses, and also he mentioned when he was out on black friday that he was not surprised or concerned about the response we're seeing in the stock market. edward? edward: thanks, stay warm out there. looks really cold. appreciate it. the new variant, infectious disease specialist is here.
7:04 am
what do we know about and about how infectious it might be at this momentsome. >> there are a lot of open questions about variant, but what we know is it was identified in south africa and seems to be spreading quite raply. we -- rapidly, we also don't know how much more transthe missable it is. there's a lot of bias in the early data that could take some time to sift through. we know it's in multiple countries including in belgium and the united kingdom, and the belgium cases were not linked to african countries, so there is some spread going on. a lot of questions need to be answered in the next couple of weeks. e. -- edward: how quickly do yu think we'll get those answers? >> we're getting some. the vaccines are able to protect against what matters,
7:05 am
hospitalization and death, but it's going to take some time to be able to know exactly how far spread it is, what those mutations, the behavior of the virus, how this variant fares against dell that and how it will do in more vaccinated countries. south africa's a place where only 25% of the population is fully vaccinated, so it's not a surprise that it may have aridsen there. arisen there. edward: dr. fauci is saying the travel ban with possibly will not contain this. is the travel ban a good idea? will it actually stop the spread. >> no, it's not a good idea. it actually penalizes countries for being transparent and talking about what variants they discovered and alerting the world. south africa deserves praise, not punishment. with a rapidly-spreading variant like this, it's not likely that any kind of travel ban is going to actually stop it from showing up. and there's no way to know that it's not even in the united states at this point because it's in the u.k., belgium, israel, hong kong.
7:06 am
that's what happens. and these travel bans just are counterproductive, and they give people this kind of sense of security that this is going to help stop this from coming here when it's likely already probably here at a low level, and it just sets a bad precedent for transparency when it comes to variants. this is what a country like south africa gets in return for being vigilant about variants. edward: so should i go to the store this weekend and shop for the holiday season or how concerned should i be? >> right now if you're a fully vaccinated individual, you can kind of go as your risk tolerance supports. i think what we're seeing is there might be some more breakthrough infections, but you're still protected against hospitalization and death, at least based on the early cay that. so i don't think that should change your behavior as a fully vaccinated individual. if you are not vaccinated, this is another reason that you should get vaccinated because that's how you protect yourself, and it's likely we will see cases here. hopefully they don't surge, but this is a reason to get
7:07 am
vaccinated so you can go about your life with minimal risk. edward: doctor, thank you for your time this morning. that certainly helps alleviate some of the fears. now, those who are, you know, fighting these covid fierce as shoppers hit -- fears as shoppers hit the stores sales are boosting higher than last year, let's dig deeper into how this covid variant may play into shoppers' thinking. dan geltrude and irs wealth montana david ragland. ladies first. traditionally, this is one of biggest shopping weekends of the year. this year is a little different. we're seeing cpi inflation about 6.2% over past 12 months, that means shoppers might not be finding the deals when they go out for black friday. are those deals still out there? >> the deals are out there. you know, i was looking through some data last night checking out some of the web site that
7:08 am
had last minute black friday deals. of course, they're trying to offload a lot of the electronics especially from last year's models and last season. so you're going to get discounts. those big flat screen tvs that maybe were not, you know, not the newest model, also things like housewares. i think the doctor was saying how the risk old -- tolerance, it's really all about accepting risk tolerance. a lot of shoppers right now, most of them have gotten their holiday shopping done prior to this week. i was looking at data from oracle, and they were saying about 28% of people are still, have not shopped. so that's a pretty low percentage compared to past years where people were kind of sprinting to the end and trying to get those gifts for everyone. e. ward: right, so i want to bring dan in here. according to mastercard, black friday sales, retail sales were
7:09 am
up they're saying 29.8% versus 2020. so i wanted to ask you, does this news of a variant play into the holiday shopping weekend we? >> well, i think it does. as people hear about this now, will it have people hold back for the rest of the weekend and push them to do online shopping instead? well, i hope not for the sake of small businesses with today being small business saturday. so is i hope people are are going to go out and support small be businesses which really got hit harder than anyone else related to covid. let's hope it goes down that road. but it seems to me that a lot of people were starting their shopping much earlier this holiday season to try to get around all of the supply chain challenges. so we're going of see what happens for the remainder of this quarter. last quarter retail stores were doing very, very well top the line. it's going to be how we go about
7:10 am
these last couple of months to see how the retailers perform. edward: david, i wanted to talk to you about the markets here. so we know this tanked the dow yesterday. a shortened trading day, no less, down more than 900 points. what do you tell your clients about investing in retail at this time as many look to make money off the boost in sales that traditionally happen during this holiday period? >> well, they actually came down dramatically on wednesday and thursday already, so you're seeing this buy the rumor, sell the news. and because of this variant coming along now, obviously sales may be impacted because it's all about what we think and know and fear. and fear is the great component that may reduce the eventual shopping that's going to happen next week, the week after. what we've got to be careful of is see how far down this move in the markets take us.
7:11 am
is it a momentary reset? then people feel better and spend more. obviously, if the market continues down the rest of the weeks before christmas, that's going to have a negative impact on shopping which is gone to have a negative impact on our retailers. edward: we're showing some of those down companies. so in an exclusive interview, i asked the atlanta federal reserve president about the potential impact of the variant on this economy. he's a potential voting member next year. here's what he had to say. >> each successive variant the economy has slowed down, but the amount of slowdown has been less. so if this new variant has the same or a similar type of trajectory as the delta variant did, then we'll see some slowing, but it should not be as much as what we've seen during delta. edward: dan, what do you think? we have a lot -- we don't have a lot of information about omicron yet. a quicker bounce? >> with well, let's hope so.
7:12 am
and, look, we have to get used to -- covid is going to be here for a very long time if not forever, so we have to message our economy around covid much more effectively which means we can't just shut things down. we have to learn how to keep everything going. business as usual to the greatest extent possible. but just be mindful that covid is out there. stay practical. edward: and hitha, is this pushing people more online or, to dan's point, will people get out there and support businesses? >> consumers were already going online. i think the way consumer has been shopping has been changing, and the fact that we keep having the rise of this variant, you know, it's just cementing that consumer behavior. but i do want to mention, i mean, this is small business saturday, small businesses make bulk of their money during this period especially if they're
7:13 am
dealing with product during the holiday season. so there's data that came out from metawhich was former -- metadisease which was form -- meta which was formerly facebook, the last time they did this study the it was 24%. so small businesses, there's a real bifurcation here. the large businesses, the big box retailers are going to be just fine we keep having these variants come up, and the small businesses are really going to struggle. that's what i'm concerned about -- [inaudible conversations] be able to bounce back. edward: yeah, i want to bring in david here, 15 seconds left. the e6789 u.'s closed its borders already, the u.s. is going to do that too. with the futures ahead moving money into the nasdaq pandemic stocks, do you see the downturn continuing to happen? >> i think we may have a couple more percentage points, but i think that's about it. we talk about how each successive variant we go down less in the market, and so i
7:14 am
think a couple more percentage points is certainly possible, but we set -- edward: all right. thank all three of you. we're going to move on now with this. before you hit the roads and the skies this weekend, fox weather's here to tell you about the potential delays. and 'tis the season for gift giving or smash and back in, a startling trend which some critics are blaming on -- [inaudible] season's greetings from audi. qunol is the number one cardiologist recommended form of coq10. qunol has 3 times better absorption than regular coq10. the brand i trust is qunol. my retirement plan with voya keeps me moving forward... even after paying for this.

7:18 am
the mall owners appears to be that it is less jarring that suddenly being faced with a mob ripping whatever they can from shelves and kiss play cases. display cases. in the los angeles area, the apparently organized groups of robbers have targeted nordstrom stores and cvs pharmacies among others. the owner of l.a.'s grove shopping mall which was targeted this week blames in part the introconduction of prop 47, a law that -- introduction of prop 47. >> i think it's a manifestation of weak leadership, i think it's a manifestation of some really bad decisions that our leaders made. it's a manifestation of deciding we're going to defund the cops. >> reporter: prop 47 was passed in 2014, and according to the public policy, while there was an immediate increase in shoplifting incidents from an average of around 8,000 per month prior to prop 47 to more than 9,000 per month in early
7:19 am
2015, the number dropped back to pre levels by 2016. but the new surge is undeniable, and before spreading south to l.a., it began in the san francisco area last weekend with luxury stores like louis vuitton and nordstrom being targeted. >> i used to go to san francisco every christmas and go do the maw city's thing -- macy's thing and the skating and the puppies in the window. i don't want to go now. it frightens me, seeing the news. >> reporter: officials say they are cracking could be and charging those they arrest with felonies. >> the charges include everything from looting, grand theft, burglary, possession of stolen property, firearm possession, commercial burglary and more. >> reporter: but while some arrests have been made, the simple fact is that hundreds have been involved in the robberies at malls like the beverly center behind me here, and so far only a very few have been caught. edward? edward: yeah, unbelievable,

7:24 am
tom dupree said there's a reason we're seeing more of this. so, tom, what is it in? >> well, i think there are a couple of things at play. the first is a lot ofties and towns have basically reclassified retail crimes as sort of saying from felonies to misdemeanors. so the penalties for a lot of this conduct has been relaxed. i think the other thing that's going on is we see a lot of prosecutors who don't necessarily make sensible charging decisions meaning even when they apprehend one of the perpetrators of these crimes, they might be inclined to make lesser charges, just a theft charge as opposed to other charges that could be warranted by the evidence; breaking and entering, weapons charges and the like. that's the other thing going on here. edward: so no feeling of punishment. so we've all seen the video there. i'm not aware of any shoppers actuallying with injured as -- actually being injured, but it takes a toll on security for shoppers. do you feel like this'll keep people away from high-end stores and department stores just by looking at? >> we're already seeing some

[laughter] on these zoom calls. you're just looking at some of that amazing video, we're seeing if we can get him back, but as always, technology causes some issues. these smash and grab robberies are just crazy. now, you were saying, tom, you were saying on this point -- we do have you back finish it's already having an effect on the shoppers' psyche? >> it is. and, look, law enforcement's job is to make society safe so that people can go out and do their holiday shopping in safety without fear, without concern they're going to be overrun by these gangs of smash and grabbers. edward: so it took a long time to get here. last year you had current president saying nothing for about three months over the summer, the same with the house speaker in california, representative the maxine waters who was telling people to get in the faces of other people if they saw people at restaurants.
7:26 am
then you had elections for district attorneys who ran on a softer approach. obviously, people feeling the consequences. it wasn't a fast buildup to here. how quickly can we handle this? >> yeah, that's the scary thing, is that there is a lot of talk in the political atmosphere about let's relax penalties and let's get in people's faces and that sort of thing. and i think this is a direct consequence of that sort of rhetoric. i think when people lose respect for the law, they don't fear capture or punishment, this is the sort of thing that you see. so i think all politicians would be well advised to make sure we have stiff sentences in place and prosecutors would be well advised to take these crimes seriously with the gravity that they deserve and apprehend and prosecute these individuals who are committing these crimes. edward: now that i have you, i want to switch topics a little bit. on the heels of the deadly attack in walk shaw, wisconsin, a group of -- waukesha, wisconsin, listen to this. progressive congresswoman rashida tlaib being asked about her plan.

is to that. edward: you had darrell brooks used the same car to run over his girlfriend, he gets $1,000 for bail, turns around and uses that that car to mow down people watching the parade. where's the accountability for the judge or the d.a.? >> yeah, that's absolutely stunning. the more we learn, the more horrifying it is. the fact is this guy never should have been allowed out to walk the streets to assault someone, multiple people with his car. the prosecutor, judges should have known he was a danger to society, he never should have been let out on such low amount of bail. edward: yeah, thanks. former deputy assistant director tom dupree, it's just shocking. more to come on that story. coming up, the u.s. warning russia it may be about to invade a european ally. we'll have the latest on vladimir putin emboldened with quiten in office -- president biden in office. but first, u.s. restrictions on

7:38 am
edward: yeah. with we separate domestic and flying international ily. so when you're talking about new restrictions, domestic travel will basically not be affected. >> no, nothing domestically. it's really just inbound travel from those eight countries in south africa. botswana, south africa, beautiful places, fantastic destinations to explore. so you're definitely going to be restricted. you can't come into our country, can't go into any of the e.u. countries, so it's not going to affect americans per se, but it's going to create more fear. that fear's going to prevent people from getting out, andst going to perpetuate this we had the mu variant a few months ago, remember that? what happened to that? that's what -- edward: i want to bring in another topic with you, this is important. i want to ask you about the faa's concerns about the 5g potentially interfering with safety on planes. want to make sure we have time

about russia's military buildup near the ukraine, this as a new report says the u.s. has shared intel with our allies that shows russia is prepared for a rapid push into ukraine should they decide to invade. let's look at the u.s. response so far. retired air force lieutenant general david natula joins me now. russia's moved more than 100,000 troops to the ukraine. how should the u.s. respond? >> well, ed, our own secretary of defense, lloyd austin, told the pentagon news conference last week that he's not exactly sure what russia's president putin is up to, and then he went on say that we'll continue to call on russia to act responsibly and be more transparent on the buildup of these forces around ukraine. now, that's fine, but with respect to your second question, the issue is how should the u.s. respond. it's not just going to be u.s.,
7:51 am
it's also going to be our allies. and the fact of the matter is right now the administration's mulling its options to deer the the kremlin -- deter the kremlin including serving military advisers and new weapons to kiev. so this kind of an aid package which might include helicopters, mortars, air defense systems is probably the first step that you're going to see from the administration and nato in response and an attempt to deter putin. edward: that's interesting. the ukrainian ministry has warned russian forces could attack in late january, early dependent as we move to the end of the year, the first of the year, words will not get hem to back down, will they? you said we might move some forces or some advisers in. should we move forces into ukraine or more forces into ukraine? >> well, this is an issue that becomes very complex because
7:52 am
it's complicated by the fact that ukraine is a former participant of the soviet union. -- part of the soviet union. it's not a member of nato and, therefore, the defense has no formal defense treaty obligations with ukraine. at the same time, u.s. and ukraine did sign a strategic defense framework just this past august that reiterates the department of defense's continued support for ukraine's right to decide its own foreign policy free from outside interference including nato's, its own nato aspirations. and frankly, that's one of the things that has russia kind of tied up in knots here because they certainly don't want to see ukraine joining nato. edward: right. no, exactly. and on friday president biden said this, you know, i'm concerned. look, we sport ukraine's territorial integrity, and we
7:53 am
reject anything remotely approaching that, talking about the an invasion. the is he just basically saying stop or stop again? and is this a factor of biden possibly looking weak on the global stage? >> well, i will tell you this, the way this this is unfolding s russia's testing the west. there's no doubt about that. putin is probing for weaknesses, and he may attack if an opportunity presents itself. at the same time, russian authorities understand that any attempt to occupy ukrainianer story would -- territory would face widespread opposition many russia and trigger wide-sweeping western sanctions that could batter the russian economy. so it's not all in one direction. putin has to weigh all of these issues. but again, i'd reiterate that the messy and chaotic withdrawal from afghanistan by the biden
7:54 am
administration may, in fact, embolden putin, and that's why he's test thing us. edward: and on that, reports the u.s. might use the next nato foreign ministers' meeting against russia and all this takes time. so does this really show the russian president the u.s. may not be leading on this, and will this have implications for china and taiwan? you mentioned how we left afghanistan. >> yeah. it's a complex set of questions that the current administration is dealing with. and you raise an excellent point. this is been so much focus on china, china, china that the american people tends to forget that the united states has an extraordinarily wild and income -- wide and encompassing national security strategy that involves all elements around the world. so when you hear people talk about, well, you know, we spend more money on our defense infrastructure than the next x
7:55 am
number of nations, that's because our national defense strategy is one that aims to seek peace and stability around the entire world. and what that means is we have to be the engaged around the world. so, yeah, what we do and how we act in this situation with respect to russia's threats will have an impact in terms of what goes on in china and related areas in the south china sea. edward: and i wanted to get in quickly. in the last 30 seconds or so, five u.s. lawmakers went to taiwan sort of in defiance. is that a show to the chinese government that, hey, the u.s. is not going to back down this time? >> i say defiance, it's a -- i mean, we are a free people. and those folks have every right to go wherever they want to go. so it's not defiant. it's reiterating the fact just like freedom of domain operations where we fly in
7:56 am
international air space or sail in international air space. we can go where we want to go. that's the whole point, is we embrace a free world with domains that are unencumber by dominant dictatorships like the one that's led by xi in china. edward: right. yeah. thank you, lieutenant general, thank you for your service to this country. really appreciate that. thank you. >> you bet. have a great day. edward: you too. still ahead, holiday travelers hit with high gas prices, president biden releasing some of our emergency oil reserves. will it help? and texas taking action to head off a massive caravan, another one, headed to the border. we'll have a live report from texas.

>> new and dangerous covid mutation named omacron remembering havoc on census security around the globe. president biden imposing travel restrictions and calling for more americans to get vaccinated. this new variant crippling the stock market yesterday as americans deal with soaring gas prices and supply shortages as the holiday shopping season start. jacqui heinrich traveling with the president investigating all of this. jacqui. >> president biden was not surprised or concerned about the response in the stock market but he did encourage americans to get vaccinated and get their booster shot saying there's a whole lot that we don't know about this variant. >> we are going to be cautious, make sure there's no travel to and from africa and regions except for american citizens who
8:01 am
are able to come back, but we don't know a lot about the variant but that it is great concern and spreads rapidly and i spent half hour this morning with my covid team lead by dr. fauci. jacqui: holiday sales expect today climb at record pace this year. increase of up to 10 and a half percent. also in lesser notice news, president biden after releasing barrels in the nation's emergency stock oil to reduce price, that plan called for boosting the government's royalty rate but it notably did
8:02 am
not recommend stopping new leases to address the climate crisis that's, of course, something the president campaigned on. all eyes have been on news of the virus. dr. fauci quelled concerns that it may be in the u.s., he wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. >> i would not be surpriseds if. we have not detected it yet but when you have a virus that is showing this degree of trance transmissibility and you're having travel related cases in israel and other places, ultimately going to go essentially all over. jacqui: travel restrictions imposed by the white house came about quickly. they were announced in pretty short order but they don't take effect until monday and causing medical experts that it would considerably lessen their benefit.
8:03 am
rich: is anyone saying inflation, should the president cut vacation short and come back to the white house. jacqui: we haven't heard talk about that yet and he might enjoy small business saturday and seems he's enjoying holiday vacation. thank you. rich: releasing oil from the reserves is expected to be a temporary fix. a look at long-term solutions to lower gas prices, let's ask fox news contributor and price future senior analyst phil flynn and dan, so welcome, gentlemen. i want to start with phil flynn here. i drove the work today and last night i filled up and oh, my god, the cost surprises me every time. triple a says the gallon stayed about the same yesterday from
8:04 am
today. the oil selling off yesterday with shutdown fears, one of the largest one-day drop since apri. will gas prices come back down, phil? phil: they will. if you look at the wholesale gasoline prices with the drop yesterday they fell about 25 cents but make no mistake about it. it really didn't have a lot from the release of strategic reserve. it really had about the fear of this new omicron virus that's spreading like crazy and it's a concern. it's the fear of big drop in demand but are we way ahead of ourself? i think we are. we drop off the equivalent in price of seeing demand drop by 4 million barrels a day. if that's the truth, we've gone from a 2 million-barrel a day deficit to 2 million-barrel a day overnight. we will see how things play out tomorrow. we will have post traumatic selloff syndrome next week. people will be scared to step in
8:05 am
at least right away even know every expert in the world will tell you at least at this point that selloff was way over done. rich: interestingly and it takes a while for them to come back down. dan, i want to ask you, let's say this is not a knee-jerk reaction, when the first billboard musical awards happened and mc hammer and janet jackson won that. would this translate to the rest of inflation, do you think? >> i think if gas prices continue to come down, edward, you're going to see that triple through and hopefully we will see some drop in pricing, however, all of the issues that we have right now related to inflation are not just isolated to fuel costs. obviously we know that we have employment issues, we simply don't have enough workers and that is causing a huge problem and bottlenecks all over the
8:06 am
world related to the supply chain. so let's have our fingers crossed that fuel prices will come down and we have a chance of getting some relief as far as inflation. ed: david on friday we saw big selloff over the past 12 months, fuel oil, heat your home, do you think we will see the cost of what people buy to heat their homes, will that come back down or energy prices just snap back? >> to me i think this is a short-term blip on the price of heating oil and gasoline. i mean, this is a fear-based reduction just like we had a fear based reduction in the market, the market still 23% on the s&p, we look at oil prices over the last 6 months and they've gone up dramatically hitting a peak around $80, so this is a short-term. we had a short trading day, we have very few people trading over this period of time. it's not a professional market so to speak on those shorter
8:07 am
days, so i think that we -- what we have to be understanding is it's always based upon supply and when supply gets reduced, prices go up and we saw that we live in a global environment now and it was a global reduction in possible demand that was bringing down prices. ed: phil same question to you. i see you nodding your head. will they snap back, would energy prices snap back or will we see barrels drop next week? phil: i think they will snap back but i don't know right away. people are stunned and scared. i've seen this happened and seems like it always happens on thanksgiving. i don't know why oil prices don't like thanksgiving. i could go back over the years. we always get the overdue selloffs. my bet is about the virus and opec. opec meets next week. they may respond in drop in price offset what they fear could be a big drop in demand and if they listen to the market, they will cut production and prices are going to go right
8:08 am
back up. ed: jeez, david, as an individual investor, do i want to get into energy stocks then or in investment because the prices are up? >> well, energy stocks have gone up dramatically. one of the leading sectors this year of the market has already moved, so again we go back to buy the room or sell the news. we are now at levels where we were pre-pandemic on some of our oil companies. now we also have to look at some of the investments that these oil companies are now making. will they go to future highs when we look at exxon, vp, spending billions of dollars not for drilling, not for production, but for alternative fuel services. we used to say drill biby drill. ed: last word, last 15 second. individual or small business owner, how do you investigate
8:09 am
your expenses going forward, do you need more cash on hand? >> cash on hand is always a good thing. cash is king when it comes to small businesses and businesses overall because you always rely on your cash flow. as far as investing it, i mean, we certainly don't want to have that just sitting in the back getting virtually no interest. you want to retain cash and at the same time you want to look at opportunities to deploy it as well. ed: thanks, guys, phil, flynn, david, we will have to leave it there. i appreciate it. you know, gee from packed roadways to unfriendly skies now as millions of americans start heading home for the holiday weekend. the tsa says it has stopped an alarming number of people with firearms at airport check points this year. alexandria hoff in dc with details. >> you know, it is not illegal the fly with a firearm but there are specific rules that travelers have to abide by. first of all, a gun definitely cannot be in a carry-on and
8:10 am
should never be loaded. 20-year high in number of weapons confiscated. last holiday travelers scrambled to jackson airport when passenger who had been pulled aside for secondary screening lunged for the loading gun causing it to discharge, that man is still at large. amid the holiday rush on tuesday, tsa boise airport in idaho found loaded handgun. on thanksgiving give tsa new england posted this tweet that agents discovered this loaded 357 magnum containing 5 rounds inside of a women's carry-on bag. 16 firearms has been detected at boston logan airport so far this year. it's happening all around the country and tsa is warning that passengers need to know the policies before heading to the airport. >> if you are traveling, for

8:16 am
have passed similar laws. the majority of new york's foreign born residents come from dominican republic, china and mexico. earlier a this week a few dozen supporters of the legislation rallied outside of city hall. >> the people that are taking care of our meals and driving the cars that we get into and making sure that we keep our city clean, they deserve a voice at the ballot box and that's exactly what this is going to do. the proposed legislation comes as a record number of immigrants are trying to enter the u.s. some opponents of the proposed bill say it diminishing the incentive for pursuing citizenship and gives immigrants undeserving say in local issues. >> this bill allows people who have lived here for a total of 30 days, literally a month to weigh in on the city's elections, the future of new york city, the amount of debt we leverage and the amount of spending that we do and the amount of taxing that we have and, again, these are people who live here for literally a 30.

ed: as the migrant surge continues at the southern border the white house reportedly going to rei state former president trump's remain in mexico policy. fox news senior correspondent casey s teigel with the story. >> not long after president biden assumed the office, hours in fact, he reversed president trump's policies for end of past summer and administration officially ended it they thought for good that is until a court was asked to step in and the judge ruled the program be reinstated. this as the record surge of migrant crossing the southern border illegally into the u.s. continues. the data showing no significant signs of letting up. all the while space to house and progress those seeking asylum has been hard to come by and the system has been overwhelmed. the official announcement is expected from the white house
8:22 am
reportedly as early as this coming week, plans to reinstate or at least a mirrored version of former president donald trump's controversial policy which requires migrant to wait outside while claims are pursuit. the only difference with president biden's spin on it, now the migrant would be offered a covid vaccine before being released from u.s. custody and then sent right back over the border. logistics of how that all would happen unclear, however, there have been reports that the feds would do a slow rollout with this. for brownsville, texas, el paso, here in texas and then san diego in california as the first 3 cities and later additional border patrol sectors could eventually and will be added. meantime, a major critic of president biden republican texas governor greg abbott has deployed an additional or says he will deploy soon an
8:23 am
additional 10,000 either state troopers or national guard units combined. now keep in mind that's already in addition to a number of assets that have already been deployed as part of what governor abbott called operation lone star which has been to assist federal agents that have been overwhelmed at the southern border. so additional help he has largely blamed president biden for this border crisis, edward. >> as you heard casey just say texas governor greg abbott not waiting for the administration to fix the mess. he's deploying 10,000 state troopser and national guard members as another caravan heads to the u.s. so lieutenant, chris oliveras with the texas department of public safety is now joining us. appreciate for your work down there first of all. second of all, would this be enough? >> thanks for having me. i could tell you right now the
8:24 am
thousand that is we have deployed as far as national guardsmen and state troopers to the southern border have been effective. it's been an effective strategy to what we are doing to try to secure the border. we have made thousands of arrests. we have seized thousands of drugs and as far as currency just from the past 3 weeks, $1.6 million of currency that was making its way south to mexico to supply the cartels. we talk about mass migration, as far as reinstatement of the remain in mexico policy that still remains to be seen. we are ten months into the crisis and i can tell you the criminal organizations, smuggling organizations are profiting from the crisis and i can tell you it's difficult for them to sit back and close up shop. it's not going to happen. they are making millions and millions of dollars a week off of human smuggling, remains to be seen how effective the policy is going to be -- it's going to take place as far as the current crisis goes. ed: 1.6 million of the illegal proceeds that they were trying to bring back to the cartels. wow, that's a lot of money.
8:25 am
how upsetting is this, the fact that federal government has largely ignored the situation on the southern border and it's falling under your shoulders? >> well, i could tell you right now that at least as far as the state agency goes, as far as texas dps the morale for state troopers at all-time high. we have tremendous support from governor greg abbott and texas legislators and state leadership because we have the resources to take care of the problem but the issue is that the federal government is stepping in and they're not allowing us to do our jobs because there are certain areas especially federal property that we could in the take enforcement action because the federal government does not want us to take enforcement action. that's what the american people need to understand. we have resources and assets to secure the border but the question needs to be asked the federal government why you're not allowing texas to step in and take care of the crisis if you're not going to do. ed: exactly. there were 164,303 encounters in the southern border and that's
8:26 am
more than doubled from october of 2020. numbers like these, is that playing into -- it is playing in the president's approval rating. fox news poll shows 59% of registered voters disapprove about the president's handling of the voter. 59%. major failure of the federal government, how do you in your opinion quickly stop the caravans from coming? >> well, it's the messaging. i can tell you that right now. the messaging from day one from the federal government has been come to the border because you will be released into the country and that's why we are seeing the mass migration taking place. the numbers have not decreased. the data shows that. as long as the messaging is still out there and also the criminal organizations benefit from the messaging and they will continue telling illegal immigrants to make it to the border because you will be released into the country and when they see that, friends and family have made the journey and they are released into the country. they know that's going to take place and not only that, but
8:27 am
messaging as far as incentivizing those they claim were separated from the previous years, incentivizing with $450,000 a head, that's not going to resolve the current crisis. it's going to make it worse and continue to escalate and that's what we are seeing. >> i want to ask you about this, we are dealing with a new variant of covid. on pace more than a million people to cross the border illegally and that's more than the populations. how many crossings do you believe have covid do we know and it's a health risk, isn't it? >> it is a health risk. that's one thing that we don't know. that's the scary part of it. we don't know the illegal immigrants were released that weren't tested for covid. the vast majority weren't especially in del rio when we had the situation with the haitians, over 12,000 released into the country. again, we don't know how many were tested for covid. that's a national health issue not only for the state of texas but for the entire country so that's one thing that we need to be concerned about as this
8:28 am
crisis continues to happen. ed: sure, last 30 seconds, lieutenant, what about offering them vaccinations, we are hearing the biden administration will allow them to have a shot before they go back to the remain in mexico policy. will that just bring people -- more people to the border that want to get that shot? >> you know, that's what we foresee. that's what i believe is going to happen. i think that should have been taking place from day one when you're releasing thousands of immigrants into the country. you're not testing them for covid and we are still at the -- at the height of this pandemic where we are see stilling covid spreading throughout the country. that should have been taking place from day one and continue to motivate the illegal immigrants to make the journey because now they will be covid tested and as long as the crisis taking place, i can tell you right now lawrence, they will find ways to smuggle i willingal immigrants into the country. ed: thank you, lieutenant

8:34 am
others into maybe hey, look, i don't want to face this in the next election, is that partly what we are going to see? >> if you talk to house democratic leadership what they'll tell you number churn and burn and there's nothing to see here but you mentioned that that number is at 17 right now and you've got to think that a lot of these incumbent democrats over the holidays as they're away from washington, d.c. and spending time with their families, they are thinking about the future and they are wondering to themselves, am i ready for another uphill reelection slog, not like the ones that i may have seen in the last two or four or six years but instead at a moment when things have really changed, when party orthodoxy is moving further and further to the left. i think that some of these incumbent democrats are wondering, do i have it in me to run again in a year that historically is probably not going the favor my party. ed: so you talk about that, the policies moving a little bit
8:35 am
further to the left, why the democratic party as a whole not looking at this and saying, wait a may not, maybe we want to alter some of the spending plans or reverse some of the policy decisions? >> yeah, it's a good question. one would think a turn would is happened after virginia when you saw glenn youngkin triumph over terry mcauliffe and over democratic establishment and celebrities. if you look at the race, they brought everyone in from former president obama to the current president. they had all of the heavy hitters there and that couldn't move the needle for them. you would think that that would be sort of a wake-up moment perhaps but instead you've seen president biden not listen to joe manchin and kyrsten sinema and not really moderate. i think that that may be a reflection of the fact that democrats are saying, look, we are probably going to have to deal with republican congress next year. we might as well get what we can while the get asking good. ed: of those 17 some of them in
8:36 am
moderate districts so what you're going to be left with is a more progressive democratic party, right? >> yeah, and that's a really good point because those, you know, those democrats who are from more moderate districts, a lot of folks who came in 2018 and they came in on focusing oh kitchen-table issues, came in promising to be a check on president trump or to generally just be a moderate voice that speaks for their district. but instead what we have seen is that the conversation that's happening in dc is much more progressive. it's much more moving towards the left and i think that some of these democrats are thinking to themselves, well wait a minute, the electorate never favors the party who controls the white house, it's already going to be difficult, add to that, though, the increases in illegal immigration, the increases in inflation if virginia is an indication, a fact that a lot of voters seem to be rejecting anything
8:37 am
progressive right now. ed: before you go, remember when president biden bashing former president trump about banning travel over u.s. covid fears in january of 2020. listen to this. >> in moments like this, this is where the credibility of a president is most needed as he explains what we should and should not do. this is no time for donald trump's record of hysteria, xenophobia and fear-monger to go ed tolead the science. >> well, it's a very different moment. we know a lot more about the virus than we did in january 2020. that's the soundbite that will haunt the current president because with the omicron variant there was little time spent between realizing that this was something that could be perhaps
8:38 am
more dangerous than we had seen before and the administration saying, no, we are ready to ban travel from south africa and 7 other african nations. that might be the prudent choice but i think that his past statements, those are going to provide a little bit of a hiccup and i think republicans are certainly going to make him pay for that flip flop. ed: lives on the internet forever. thanks, appreciate it. so here is something that all homeowners are giving thanks for this year, their home's value, we will investigate if this is a bubble or not next. ♪ ♪ ♪
