this is why he did that, why he won. the american people rejected more of this, more blood on politicians hand, the democrats want this issue politically more than they want a solution and that is a factor. if i was advising this president i would say tell mitch mcconnell to go nuclear. national security issue, simple majority of the senate for border security. rob: the president asking congress to provide $5 billion next year to start building that wall along the southern border. donald trump approving a disaster declaration of hawaii braces for hurricane lane. incredible video showing a weather plane flying directly into the eye of that category 4 storm with winds of 150 mph. also some stunning video of the hurricane, that is the plane flying into the storm and video

from a campaign or personal funds and the president was the one who directed the payments. >> members of his campaign, members of the trump organization all document that the money was paid before the election and prosecutors brought charges that mister cohen was motivated for political reasons to pay hush money and mister trump is named as the person who directed and coordinated it. >> reporter: he mentioned sharks, democrats on the wasting no time blasting the president as a co-conspirator with talk of impeachment and calling for brett kavanaugh's supreme court nominee hearing to be postponed. >> this nomination is now tainted because the president who nominated him, brett cavanagh, implicated in a criminal conspiracy. >> he did not drain the swamp, he made it more rigid and more fetid. there is a cesspool around this president. >> reporter: chuck grassley says

we went to have a debate in which our universe is universe of real accomplishment and their universe is a universe of essentially trying to block everything and i think if we communicate that correctly we will win by a huge margin. rob: in order to impeach the president democrats would have to flip 24 republican seats in the house in november and then still have a much tougher process remaining in the senate after that. not easy to do. a bombshell revelation that jurors in the paul manafort trial talked about the case before they were supposed to. one of the jurors commented on the weakness of paul manafort's defense, his attorneys tried unsuccessfully for a mistrial. one of the jurors revealed to fox news that a single juror prevented manafort from being found guilty on all 18 counts. >> we all tried to convince her to look at the paper trail, laid

legal immigrant charged with the murder of mollie tibbetts had a fake id and social security number and worked in iowa for 7 years. jillian: we need tougher vetting, the executive director of conservative hispanic society here to react, thanks for joining us. what do you make of the fact he had this stuff on him claiming to be someone else and able to work for years? >> no big surprise. we have a complete underground in the united states that has grown up in the last 40 or 50 years of individuals being able to scan the system once they are in. my belief is he should never have been allowed to get into the united states to begin with to present his phony papers. i know our businesses have some culpability here but the exclusive responsibly in my mind rests on the 535 individuals in that congress and any particular president at any given time and it seems for the first time in my memory we have a president committed to stopping illegal immigration. i just wish the rest of congress would get on board. rob: i want to harp on one
thing. the social security card, he had a social security number. how is that possible? even if you have somebody who died, the name won't matchup. how does that work? >> reporter: my understanding, a press conference with the owner of the farm in question, it was alleged he was misrepresenting himself as whoever that social security card belonged to. i recall some years back the social security administration putting out a memo, over a decade ago, 9 million social security guards in this country that didn't match the individual they were supposed to be with. at the same time our federal government was saying we have no way of locating illegal aliens in the united states, it is complete rubbish. we have not had commitment to stop this. i like what the president said.
we have a young lady separated from her family. i see no protests from democrats or republicans. that shameful statement from elizabeth warren yesterday as she pivoted from the loss of this family to say the real tragedy of illegal aliens being separated from their children as they go through the legal system and forget in america we don't punish children when their parents break the law. jillian: what needs to be done about all this? >> i wish the republicans would actually live up to their hype for a change. it was suggested mitch mcconnell actually get serious and bypass the obstructionist democrats and get something done for the american people for a change but right now it seems most of washington dc, the entirety of the democrat party and alarming number of republicans are arrayed toward rights to come to
the united states. i really think there ought to be a concentration on finally stopping illegal immigration and reforming legal immigration. it can be done with a proper commitment. rob: interesting when you look at it, talking amnesty for illegal immigrants in this country you are watching so many areas near this country, this crisis in venezuela, the country exploding and a real cartel and violence problem in mexico and other central american countries coming up through mexico, if you open the borders it could be a land rush. with all -- >> it already is a land rush. the excuse used around the world saying there is oppression, coming to america a huge draw,
that doesn't necessitate that you have the right to do so. we need a set of legislators on both sides of the political aisle put american citizens of all races, colors and creeds first before the needs of individuals, once they establish that we have secure borders and start to legally put people into the united states that we can that things like what happened in iowa don't happen again. jillian: appreciate it. 19 after the hour, raging flames more dangerous thanks to verizon. the cell phone company coming under fire for putting firefighters lives in jeopardy. rob: the sky is the limit for this 90-year-old. how former president george hw bush inspired an epic birthday celebration.
