charles. william. william: texas border agents reporting arise in nationals trying to enter the u.s. on the southern border, border security is national security, border agents in the el paso sector aggressive 45 national nationalities to date, great job. intercepting five migrants from turkey entering illegally. agents have been exhausted, people from mexico, south america central america, now eastern europe and elsewhere. let's bring in for congresswoman, a member of the house, security and agricultural economic disparity committees, i want to show statistics here we have from 2021. when president trump left office, 78000 apprehensions a month as you see now, president biden wrote to 209,000 setting new monthly records so do you on the gop around the white house
1:10 pm
basically a year now, almost like you're talking to three blind mice, they don't want to see or hear or talk about it, what are you willing to do to get a plan to solve the problem at the southern border? >> happy new year, first of all. you are right, it's a where's waldo administration, no one can be found and no one wants to take responsibility. you have vp harris who's done close to nothing, secretory mayorkas supply personally have questioned three times in congressional hearings who said he thinks they are doing their job. data shows again pointing to the fact that no, the border is not secure. you cannot have a secure nation
1:11 pm
unless you have secure borders and if you don't have secure borders, you are not in a safe sovereign nation so what we have here is a crisis, a border crisis and as we have seen throughout the years, what this administration has done turn every town into a border town in america. we have long had a plan to secure the border and we have tried multiple times, all of which nancy pelosi stopped on the house floor. she refuses to acknowledge there's a border crisis happening. her colleagues don't go to the border because they don't want to see what we all know because it is against their narrative. the gop and republicans, when we take the house back in november, we will have a plan ready to go come january when the 118 congress starts and that's important because we have all said it's necessary to win the midterms. william: the house, senate and white house and even the house, you have any leverage? second, what is your -- what are you going to do?
1:12 pm
the president doesn't want to do it, you won't get any. >> and that's the thing, we think there is great opportunity to take this on as well, having that balance in washington is critical, ultimately what i think americans want so we can put forth legislation, restart the process of securing the border by continuing construction of the wall already appropriated. william: may i ask you, if you have any leverage? is there anything you are willing to give up to get what you are talking about? >> at the end of the day, when you take an oath, you have to uphold the laws and border security is national security. the fundamental role of federal government is national security, democrats don't want to get along on that, that's on them but when you have the majority, we will be passing legislation sending it to the present desk and if they veto it, that's on his hand. we know he's a trafficker and chief completing the cycle or
1:13 pm
cartel. william: the only problem is, a 20-dollar job almost anywhere. bringing in immigrants from around the world, it's hard for you to turn off the jobs magnet when we, people are offered a job from east africa or south african, you can't fight that. >> that is the thing, we've been encouraging folks, the of administration has been encouraging folks to come illegally because it's reported. when you have 90 billing dollars just this year alone authorized to go to increased kat foods program where you don't have to show any proof of citizenship or legal status, it's a free-for-all, you're basically saying we want to give you free stuff so who wouldn't want to come here? that's one of the most apprehended nationalities along the southwest border, romania, it's a global issue, not just a triangle country issue so we
1:14 pm
have three states to the fullest extent and get partners in mexico to cooperate. we have leverage their, we need to make sure title 42 stays in place, cdc director. bureaucrats are elected, they work for the people and congress needs to exercise their authority to hold the administrations and the agencies and check. william: we will be talking about it all this year. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you so much, happy new year. julie: global supply crisis sparing no one, not even ikea. house impacting these giants and what ikea plans to do about it. ♪♪

1:19 pm
supply chain crisis. i'm known for affordable prices ikea issued the following statement, unfortunately not for the first time higher costs have begun to affect the global economy, we have to pass parts of the increased costs on to our consumers. let's bring in university of maryland economist peter, thank you for talking to us. ikea is a go to for so many people, not only is it affordable, even college students rely on it heading off to their freshman year of college. the prices are going to rise an average of 9% stores around the world for the foreseeable future, how long is this going to last? >> i think the price hikes are permanent, the question is if there is additional hikes. supply chain problems will continue into 2023 and 2024, it's not just computer chips, it's basic stuff like paint and varnish is, things of this
1:20 pm
nature. supply chain is brittle, is under invested in 2020 when things were at the worst and we are building the chain, it will take many years. >> inflation has skyrocketed we know, strong demand for products, global supply chain, bottlenecks but as a result americans are paying higher prices for literally everything stables, food, gas, 6.8% rose in 2021 compared to the same month one year earlier, marking the largest one month increase since 1982. it's not something the administration can be proud of, what is your prediction for the year ahead and what is president biden going to do about it? >> before you can fix a problem, you have to admit you have a problem in the federal reserve said inflation can go back to 2%. the treasury department expects the inflation to go back at 2%, they are basically wishing and hoping the problem will go away.
1:21 pm
increasing flows through los angeles is nice but we have a shortage of truckers, we can't find people to do trucking, a lot of it is pandemic relief, people stay home and they have chosen to stay at home. they have to acknowledge some of the things they are doing create inflation. childcare initiative would likely increase the top cost of childcare by about 80% and reduce availability. i don't know how it increases participation of women in the workforce for lowest price but the white house said the program will lower the cost of childcare, that's an absurd statement to make. >> what an absurd statement to make is the fact that the white house has come away from admitting there's inflation in the first place. >> exactly, right after thanksgiving, the cost of a thanksgiving dinner, not only
1:22 pm
where turkey is not available in large enough supply, prices were up in quality was very poor in some cases but we have to go to several markets on occasion weekly to find certain items. popcorn, we couldn't find popcorn for one week, absurd. >> i know, i was trying to find baking soda the other day, i was trying to attempt to cook in the kitchen and fortunately that saved me and i'd never did make my cookies this year. as far as inflation and the president, let's talk about the fact that truckers, shortage of truckers are responsible for getting goods, from one side of the country to the other, vaccine mandate for men and women making deliveries sitting alone delivering goods. if you put, issue mandate, what
1:23 pm
will it do to the trucking industry? >> we won't have enough truckers, the folks are independently minded even if they declined to get vaccinated, they will say are not going to because i'm told to do it. truckers are a rare breed out there in the road for many hours, many are entrepreneurs and own their own rig, they don't like being told what to do. my feeling is this will exacerbate the problem. same thing at the port of los angeles and long beach, it's the warehouses, if you look at an iphone, the number from the factory in china, it's rather large. if you look at the component, it's another multiple set of links, along the way people won't get vaccinated, people who catch covid where they don't have access to vaccines and so forth, it's a problem. people should be vaccinated but
1:24 pm
why does mr. biden say if you want to get government vaccinated, if you want to get medicare subsidy, you have to be vaccinated. the answer is it would cut into his electoral base and he's not interested in this, the mandates are targeted under trump supporters and he knows that. >> university maryland chief, thank you for joining us and happy new year. >> happy new year. william: first time i heard back. a listers and countless fans mourning the loss of ready white. a look back at her legendary career next. ♪♪

devastating wildfire in the boulder, colorado area has called on thanks to some snow but for those looking to recover losses and homes, winter weather can hurt as much as it helped.

jeff paul is live with the latest. >> major updates coming in today from authorities surrounding this wildfire, we now know three people are missing, originally that number they say was high as five, they resolved two cases, elderly people they found that were okay but these three people still missing come from homes burned down to the ground so they fear they could possibly be debt and bring cadaver dogs in tomorrow to search the premises. the other big headline is they say authorities say they are getting a tip, they've received several tips in executing a search warrant, couldn't go into detail about that but that's related to the major headline update, the number of homes burned to the ground, close to 1000 and hundreds of others damaged so we are starting to learn more about this as things go on and look behind me, you

can see this is just one of the many homes destroyed in the fire and right now folks are trying to get back into the fire damaged neighborhoods like this one but authorities say it too dangerous. however, we did get a chance, to coincide a neighborhood and this is what we have. >> still little fires are burning throughout neighborhoods here, you can smell the smoke, you can hear the word crackling, the snow blanketing the damage, it's nothing to hide the devastation the community will be feeling for months on end. the massive wildfire began thursday destroy close to 1000 homes, tens of thousands of people forced to evacuate some still cannot return home to see if it's still standing. the other concern is the frigid cold temperatures and snowy
1:31 pm
weather with temperatures dipping to ankle digits, folks are worried about pipes freezing and if they return home and find they have frozen, they will have burst pipes on their hand so another disaster but despite difficulties, people are in shock of what transpired in a man matter of hours. >> for 35 years i walked out my front door and i saw beautiful homes. now when i walk out, i walk out my front door, this is what we see. >> the sheriff saying three people missing, they fear they could have died in the wildfire but even still, miraculous the number is even higher given the amount of damage and how the fire swept through. william: incredible to go from drought two or 3 feet of snow and the number of houses in a 24

1:33 pm
on january 17. let's bring an fox news entertainment reporter, ashley, haven't seen you in forever, happy new year. >> happy new year, julie, great to see you. julie: we used to work together many years ago so it's a nice reunion. literally one of my all-time favorite shows growing up, i used to watch with my grandmother and mother but you don't even have to grow up watching to know who betty white is and was, it's an example of how she reached so many generations. >> so many generations and that's what you are hearing now, so many stories and memories shared. just her career, iconic characters she created, longest career by a female entertainer, her comedic timing, her way of being sweet and raunchy simultaneously, something only betty white could do.
1:34 pm
her positivity on and off screen, people felt like they knew her. they got to know her, she has this charm about her. you didn't have to grow up knowing the mary tyler moore show are golden girls so if you haven't watched it, go watch your character, every scene she was in, every wine she delivered was amazing the 2010 snickers commercial went it became viral, the viral sensation, the campaign to host saturday night live and hot in cleveland, that was a hit series, her third hit series which is incredible to have three and one career. she was only supposed to be a guest in a pilot on that and then she went on to do the show. the movies, the proposal with ryan reynolds and central sandra bullock, you again so she's on the big screen and small screen and costars sharing their thoughts, ryan reynolds said she managed to grow very old but

somehow not old enough. sandra bullock set people magazine from a she's going to have a thought, and hot dog, betty writes famously favorite meal and be okay being sat so such a tmendous loss, such an icon but so many stories and people sharing so much love today and there's going to be a film, the movie is supposed to premier and it still will generate 17th to celebrate her life and producers say it will go on in hopes it will provide a way for all who left her to celebrate her life. >> or close friends said i don't think betty feared passing because she wanted to be with her most beloved husband, alan. it was with alan she lived in her oceanfront home in carmel and that's where she wanted to live the rest of her life but unfortunately she had to go back
1:36 pm
to los angeles county because she did have at home care and apparently more convenient for her but she lived her very best life, an example to us all. i know betty white, which she would be turning 100 on january 17, she'll be having the best birthday party hosted for her in heaven. she is a real classic. thank you. >> absolutely. thank you. william: hospitalizations of children for covid-19 are reaching new highs. the omicron variant surges across the u.s. next, a closer look at the numbers. ♪♪

1:42 pm
hospitalization and death, children tend to be the least vaccinated group in the country and because of that, the virus is going to find them and some have underlying conditions like asthma or immunosuppression about put them higher risk for hospitalization. what remains true, children are generally not going to be hospitalized with this and i think we have to separate children's hospitals testing positive because everyone is getting tested in hospitals so sums are admitted with covid but not for covid. >> 14% of five to 11-year-old and 50% of 12 to 17 -year-olds but there's controversy right now about natural immunity, whether you get delta or omicron, children and adult should also get boosters, shots one and two, and the booster even if they've received or have been infected, do you agree or disagree? >> when it comes to boosters, the clear benefit in those above
1:43 pm
the age of 65 and those with high-risk conditions, i can imagine a child with asthma or underlying conditions needing a booster because when it comes to boosters, the threshold is preventing serious illness, hospitalization and death and it's not something healthy people are going to experience without a booster. i work in a hospital, people are lacking first and second dose was taking up hospital beds, not people flocking boosters surgery they should have a targeted approach to boosters and preventing severe disease because i think think to prevent mild illness in helping people isn't a good use of the vaccine and gives you a transient benefit for a period of time and we need to focus on first and second doses in the american public not vaccinated. william: with the breakthrough infections we are seeing, are we really just trying to just stay out of the hospital? >> i think that is the main goal we have to keep in mind because that's what flattening the curb was about. we talk about covid, it's going
1:44 pm
to be ubiquitous, something everyone will be infected with, the key is to be infected when it tamer and doesn't put you at risk for hospitalization so infected with covid is after being fully vaccinated, this will be a seasonable respiratory virus we deal with year in and year out and the goal is to make it a defined version of itself antibodies and antivirals but there is no escape, it doesn't magically go back to back so we have to take think about sustainable approaches no we can't get the risk down part of people are not dying and that is a win for the vaccine, a win for all. william: we are looking one in eight being vaccinated, this will just mutate on so basically everyone has it is not what you are trying to say? it's not going to be stopped? >> right, there are four coronavirus causing 4% of hold.
1:45 pm
this is following that pathway, evolving traits to get around immunity, immunity provided by infections and transmit highly immunized populations so it will settle and probably 60 coronavirus was just like the others before. william: thank you very much. >> thanks. julie: democrat closing out the year with even more retirements, could the party lose its majority in the midterm? a rush to the exit continues. we will look at that, next. ♪♪
