>> yes, the focus shifts to pornography deleted from the victim's xufrment what it could mean for jodi arias and her fate. it is it all "happening now". >> let's get to our top story. president obama on the way to nevada where he will promote his executive orders on immigration. welcome to the second hour of "happening now" on this friday. i am jon scott. >> i am shannon bream in for jenna lee. president the president ordered that the immigrants. the house will not stand idell and let the executive order stand. he gave no hint on what the republicans will do. >> wendall golar is in las
10:02 am
vegas. >> reporter: we are at the high school where the president obama pushed the clock on immigration reform in 2013. he announced the executive order ares in the face of bitter republican opposition and claims of overstepping the authority and threat to sue him or worse. the white house said he will revisit the action. he said criminals not children. and fellopes and not families who have been here for years. and the political and practical side will seal the deal. >> tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people is not realistic. anyone who suggests otherwise is not being straight with you. it is also not who we are as americans. after all, most of these immigrants have been here a long
10:03 am
time. and work hard and in tough low- paying jobs and support their families. they worship at our churches. >> the president's speech grew supporters to the white house. president obama hopes anything republicans will do may help his base. >> house speaker john boehner said the president made it impossible for trusting him. and they can't work together on other possibles. >> the president is taking action that he himself said are of a king or emperror and not an american president. americans want nothing more than both parties to focus on solving the biggest problems in our country, starting with our still struggling economy. >> reporter: speaker boehner filed a lawsuit against the
10:04 am
affordable care act and threatening one against the immigration order as well. >> lots of shoes left to drop here. >> charles kraut hammer said the president had a chance to get immigration reform. >> this is an obvious attempt to distract the republicans and enrage them and bait them in to something that will undo the victory on election day. this is a way to make the president relevant and central. >> turning to howard dean and edrollins. both are fox news contributors. general, has the president laid a delicious bait for the republicans they take it at their own peril. >> it depends on their reaction.
10:05 am
it could become that if they overreact by doing something. i don't think they will try to shut down the government or impeach him and things you hear from the party. if they avoid that and put a bill out there and pass it. and there is a bunch of different reactions and challenge it in court and it could get struck down in court if it is unconstitutional. i don't believe it is. it is how does the republican party react to this will determine if they took the bait and ran themselves in a problem or whether they come out showing they can govern. >> ed, do they play it cool. we know that boehner followed through on the lawsuit and it comes on the day after the president's speech. do they play it cool until they take over in january. >> they should do that.
10:06 am
i hope they follow the advice charles gave. what the president has done whether he is constitutional equipped to do part. the court has to step in and say he's not living up to the constitutional doubts. but the important thing for people to understand, it will not make the immigration system better. even with the 5 million not deported, 6 or 7 million has to live under cover. you created a double class and that will not benefit the country in any way shape or form. none of these people will be legal. and you are putting a burred know on on health care. and they will not be able to use medicaid or obama care and schools and communities and states will have additional financial burdens and i expect a suit from the governor of texas and florida to go forth.
10:07 am
the republicans ought to go wait until january. and the senate bill is dead. and everything starts from scratch and go after the things that matter. get the economy moving and tax reform and if immigration gets a bill passed take the time and take a year or two but don't know rushed by the action of the president. >> don't you think that the president as ed talks about the fallout and the ripple affect. you think he runs the risk of what the affordable care act. they were supportive but as people lose policies and premiums out. it sounds great up front to the people who want them, but there are real life consequences that play out in the last few years of his presidency if he follows through. >> it is a temporary thing.
10:08 am
i don't think it will have dire consequences because it is not permanent. the next president can sign it away and congress did supercede it. in that time they are not deported and whatever the congress passes with the new law that affects these people and we move forward. but there are going to be impacts in which a whole bunch of people who are not taking into account are pointing out. >> but there is going to be disappointment and a temporary status quo that congress, this is what the president didn't have the ability to do. to make the permanent changes and grant a path of citizenship. all of those things have to happen and still going to have the problem in the end of two years when the president is gp and someone comes to rewrite it.
10:09 am
>> a good chance for americans to brush up on the constitution. >> the powers of the purse and passing laws for congress and president enforces the law. and the important thing here is that it is not a short term fix. it will take a long-term effort and the republicans should not get distracted but move forward to get the economy started for the americans. >> and the democrats got a shellacing. and joe and ed, always good to see you both. >> there is growing debate on what immigration reform could mean for the economy. and the white house said the americans will benefit from it with gross domestic product expected to increase. and the administration said wages for native workers will increase.3 percent. and republicans and other critics fear reduced wages and

intelligence support activity and pentagon classified special mission unit. and a fox military analyst. the destruction of isil targets further limits the terrorist group's ability to project power and contact operations, are sounds good, doesn't it? >> sounds good, jon, and wish it was so. isis is continuing to consolidate and achieve gains in the areas they are working hard on. and indeed, the iraqi army had success against them, but it is rather limited. i talked to a friend in irbil and kurdisstan who said it is worse than we see in the news. >> isis is having success against the kurds. >> the kurds have not received
10:25 am
ammunition and the things they got are old weapons and the ammunition doesn't fit and they don't have enough to do counter battery type operations and going to be offensive against isil and they are watching from the front lines while isis is digging trenches and bunkers and reenforces themselves with people and ammunition. i love to see what we can do in air power. but in the height of the iraq war we ran 800 strike and the latest number is like 25 strikes a day. we are a long way from engaging isis and changing the dynamics of the battlefield. >> the resolve is not living up to its name? >> i don't think it is it, jon. and i don't take anything away from the men and women who are participating. the military would like to be

planning stages. they may be too busy continuing to figure out how to best fight against the u.s. air power and iraqi army and kurds. they have it on their plans to come to the the united states at some point and when they decide to do it, i don't think they will have trouble smuggling material or supplies to carry out an attack. there is plenty of things they could be doing in the united states and in all likelihood will. >> ominous thoughts. >> johnathon gruber calling the american people stupid. the story almost didn't come out at all. because the man who uncovered the information couldn't get anyone in the information to

10:37 am
from getting a nuclear bomb. iran claims that the nuclear program is peaceful. and the big incentive for iran is to get the west to lift the sanctions. the incentive for the obama administration is obvious. they would love to get some kind of foreign policy win under their belts. even secretary kerry said the u.s. wants a deal but not a bad deal. >> the latest word that we are getting the talks will continue through the weekend and the the consensus of analyst we spoke to came to this opinion, that there will not be a deal. some kind of face- saving announcement and then the decision to talk some more. back to you. >> all right. greg, thank you. >> the refalation that obama care architect johnathon grubber said the health care law passed

10:40 am
he was so motivated because of the negative impact on him and now that it is it heating up, he's staying out of the limelight and saying it is about something bigger and not him. >> we don't have a picture of him to show you. i have an audio recording. i asked him why? he said i will be a political target and people will dump on me. he's not a journalist and he is a citizen that came up with an important element of the obama care debate. >> even though the media has yet to join the party. what dow have on sunday? >> thank you for{. cheryl is on the program on sunday. and we'll talk to sarah lacy

i mitigating factor in the murder case? >> if i may. >> you still would. >> you contradicted yourself only with great love and affection, you believe he doesn't deserve the death penalty. i think this adds to the narrative and she saw him looking at pornography and he cheated on her and ignited her passion. and she slit his death and stabbed or whatever she did on him. it is a passionate aspect of the defense. >> you see that that's got got nothing to do whether the character of the the victim is a mitigating factor of the case. that's why he's so good. why can this woman introduce the evidence that shoes it was okay
