1:15 am
>> welcome back, homeland security secretary kirstjen neilsen closing meetings with the new foreign minister as both nations work toward a solution to the migrant crisis. mexico's left-leaning administration can work with immigration hardliners in donald trump's cabinet, why can't congress follow suit? here to debate is political director of the republican party of texas, thank you for joining us, let's begin with you.
1:16 am
why can't they work with donald trump if it seems mexican officials are willing to try? >> frankly they don't have the votes to get meaningful legislation does lose several members are leaving, they don't want their records to be known as the last vote was based on the border wall for donald trump, democrats have little to no motivation to compromise with them, not including the border wall. donald trump is adamant he gets $5 billion for the border wall but they don't have the support they need to get anything done. heather: they need tween 9 democratic votes to pass the spending bill which has been pushed back to december 21st, so right before christmas. what is your opinion on it? >> and so we have a permanent solution we are going to
1:17 am
continue to see these fights over temporary fixes and mexico will not be supportive of helping to pay for any immigration or border security and democrats could use this as an opportunity to stall because they will get control of the house in january and that will make it harder for the president to get his funding but we could have avoided the situation we are seeing at the border, heading 2013 the republican supported schumer's proposal which would have meant 40,000 additional border agents serving on the border. >> let's take a look at what mexico's foreign minister had to say, leaving the mexican embassy in washington, very productive conversation with the team the daily serves our country in the capital of the united states of america, gratitude in recognition to them.
1:18 am
>> i think that is part of the plan in mexico, to try to be productive with america. 80% of mexican exports are to the us, they cannot ruin their relationship with donald trump so early in the administration. he holds a lot of economic power over that country so it makes sense for them to want to discuss it with donald trump, with the new mexican government. >> some of the things they said, they are prepared to find jobs at factories at the border, also infrastructure projects in the south. something they have not ruled
1:19 am
out is a fake third country option which would be an arrangement with the department of homeland security, they prefer that here, which would require migrants to seek asylum in mexico instead of the us. >> the issue is these people should not have to flee their homes in order to feel safe in their community. they should be able to stay in mexico or wherever they live and enjoy a happy, safe life. i think we cannot open our borders and make a solution to this. we have to find a way to help these people in the country they live, no one should walk 200 miles with their child to have an economic opportunity. at some point the united states has to hold these countries accountable and say you need to make sure your people are okay and safe and they don't have to come here to have a happy life. heather: we appreciate you joining us. the time is 20 minutes after the

1:31 am
allies. the us pulled out of the 2015 iran nuclear deal and impose sanctions earlier this year. the head of the cia is heading to capitol hill, to brief a small number of senators behind closed doors, on the death of jamal khashoggi. she will discuss saudi arabia's role in the murder. officials on both sides of the aisle concerned about her absence during the session with mike pompeo and mattis last week. french president emmanuel macron will suspend tax hikes over protests over the climate change agenda. he will announce the suspension later today after weeks of violent protests throughout the country as protesters pool out of a meeting with government officials. ambulance drivers joined the
1:32 am
movement using dozens of emergency vehicles to block the french national family building, protesters called for his resignation. vladimir putin will not be stepping on american soil anytime soon. potential trip to washington is, quote, out of the question according to russian state media. donald trump extended an invitation when the two world leaders met for a summit in finland over the summer. the president canceled a meeting with vladimir putin at the g 20 summit last week over russian aggression against ukraine. the chinese scientist behind genetically edited babies is missing. his former employees report his arrests is not true, he has not been seen since last week. chinese government officials called for the scientist to stop his work calling it illegal and unacceptable. the first gene edited babies were born last month and there's another baby reportedly on the way. gene editing is banned in the us.

the grammys postponing its nomination announcement in honor of george hw bush. it was scheduled for tomorrow morning but will now take pl. friday instead so it does not conflict with the 41st president's state funeral. the grammy awards ceremony is scheduled for february 10th in los angeles. nearly 2/3 of illegal immigrants estimated to be living in the united states, 2 thirds currently on welfare and you guessed it, the american taxpayers footing the bill. a number comes from census analysis compiled by the center for immigration studies we talk and millions of illegal immigrants cash in on programs that are supposed to help americans in need? here is ned ryan. thank you for joining us. does this surprise you? >> absolutely not. what a staggering to me, 63% of
1:34 am
households are on some form of welfare. if they've been here longer than 10 years ago to 70%. it is costing the american taxpayer $116 billion a year, when you look at education, welfare, all the things we are doing to fund illegal immigrants being in the country. i wrote for fox news yesterday, really asking, when it comes to the border wall some of the left and some of the right say we need to accept immigrants. it is our moral responsibility. what about our moral responsibility for the american taxpayer? the humanity of my children in the future of the country of the humanity of the american veterans, wire they are not adequate be taken care of a given the respect they need? we need to ask questions of republicans and democrat leadership because we got to this place because of an unholy alliance between democrats and republicans and we have a broken immigration system and open welfare system we are looking at a grim economic future.
1:35 am
heather: grim numbers so you can see that because this brings it home, we mentioned 63% of noncitizen household, 50% of naturalized citizens and 30% of native households. >> the other thing to look at in dealing with the immigration system, we have to deal with chain migration, 728 million in the last 10 years. by a 2 to one advantage favoring the democrat party because they want more welfare programs. you see people coming not necessarily to work or economic opportunity but to take the welfare system which the american taxpayers funding and one of the questions we need to ask is what happens when mass automation hits? they are going to be thrown out of work, put to the streets but we have to put them on the social welfare system and the
1:36 am
only way is by life coaching draconian taxes for you and me and our children and at that point it is not a free society. heather: we don't want to see protests like paris. let's look at what donald trump had to say. we would save billions of dollars if the democrats would give us votes to build the wall. either way people will not be allowed into the country illegally, we will close the entire southern border if necessary, also stop the drugs. if we got funding for the border wall which chuck schumer said he would pony up 1.6, that is not for the physical wall itself but border security. donald trump once $5 billion and -- >> not enough. 43-25 billion to get a fully funded physical wall in many places as possible and the rest of the border secured the best we can. pretty amazing how democrats changed their tune including chuck schumer who voted for funding for the wall and border security and you have seen a lot of change not just because of
1:37 am
funding the hard left, the grassroots. heather: who is in office, who is the president. >> and realizing with chain migration and other things, it will get them political power so you look at democrats they are doing this for political power and republicans on the broken immigration system doing it for short-term business game. heather: delay on purpose. which should anchor americans. >> i made this argument in the fox news piece, deeply immoral for any leader, republican or democrat to prioritize the humanity of other people besides the american taxpayers american voters should be prioritized, deeply immoral, we need to start calling them to account not only in elections but constantly talking to them saying this is a winning issue. if you look at the never 62% of people think we need to reduce the numbers of illegal immigration. immigration is a winning issue, why donald trump got elected, republicans need to take a look
1:38 am
at this and appraising, we need to do this in a responsible manner and secure the border and take a hard look, coming into the country, how we address that in a responsible way. heather: border security, china, two huge issues he ran on. we will see what happens. on, people will enjoy it. 20 minutes until the top of the hour, neither snow nor rain can stop them delivering your packages but the u.s. postal service pressing paths this week for a big reason and a good reason. donald trump's administration has been, quote, criminal from the start. a brand-new swipe from alexandria ocasio-cortez.

>> records about meetings between a law firm working with the clinton campaign and general counsel james baker after the doj failed to respond to the watchdog group's freedom of information act request last month. we appreciate it.
1:49 am
between general counsel james baker and the perkins couey law firm. >> that is correct. there is a specific report that james baker testified to house investigators that he had an unusual request or visit with a lawyer who happened to representative democrat national committee, and hired fusion gps and all that led to the fusion gps dossier used a target team trump. baker says it was the usual request and at the meeting he conveyed documents about the russia probe and some computer devices that had something to do with russia hacking. the law firm said the meeting wasn't about a representation to
1:50 am
the dnc and clinton campaign, it raises questions about the collaboration between in an unusual way the top lawyer for the fbi. >> what explanation to share this information? >> they testified it was about russia so this is on top of the dossier going into the fbi and the doj in numerous ways used by the obama administration, the trump administration on behalf of mueller to spy on the trump team. >> would mueller have been aware of this activity? >> i presume so. one of the reasons we have difficulty finding out about
1:51 am
this collusion is the mueller special counsel operation benefited from the difference between the dnc and clinton campaign, fusion gps which by its own admission used russian install sources to dig up dirt on donald trump and the fbi and doj, the final renewal of a fbi essay warned signed by rosenstein. >> why is that not been released in its entirety, donald trump said he was going to do? >> the president said he was convinced to kick it to the department of justice inspector general. we are still waiting. it is urgent the president release this information. those who looked at the f i asked a warrant application says it is more scandalous than what is in there. >> another scandal, jerome corsi said he hit a criminal complaint, the special counsel sought to get false testimony from him.
1:52 am
>> he thinks he has been truthful with the special counsel, he is being pressured to say things that aren't true and that is deeply disturbing. the problem for the special counsel, these individuals like jared corsi get caught up in the investigation and jerry says i have tried to be forthright, i haven't lied. they found emails that suggested by testimony made good faith, was not accurate and accusing me of perjury and it is not the case. heather: we have seen it happen with other people. >> you know what is interesting here? these folks would ever be here but for the connections to the trump campaign. in the case of corsi the 6 ° of kevin bacon connections. he is holding as a witness,
1:53 am
trying to cooperate and facing jail time. i don't blame him for yelling about it. heather: comey in a closed-door hearing on capitol hill on friday, and exonerating hillary clinton by finishing the investigation. we talked about this before and what should republicans ask him? >> they should ask him about why he told congress just before the election, evidently they reviewed the emails and why and how he took fbi memos on donald trump from the fbi, and to get the mueller appointment going. and ask about this use of the
1:54 am
clinton dossier and what peter stzrok was up to and why he ran investigations out of his office as opposed ordinary course where you had local offices in the fbi or elsewhere in washington dc running investigations. james comey is at the center of the storm, under investigation himself, this is a serious issue and i wish they questioned him earlier, but republicans are about to lose control. >> do you expect equal treatment for james comey if it is determined he lied as well? >> know. i don't. some of these folks are protected and unless there's a radical change in outlook for the fbi, i want an investigation done. not sure there's anything being done in terms of investigating these. to target the trump team. heather: thank you for joining us and appreciate you and your
