tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  December 28, 2018 4:00pm-5:01pm PST

4:00 pm
>> bret: one week, hard to believe. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight and every night in 2018. we look forward to a great 2019 i had to. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and still unafraid. happy new year. "the story" hosted by ed henry starts right now. >> hope to see you in 2019. breaking right now, police officers ronil singh shot and killed by someone here in the u.s. illegally has now become an angel family. >> is not coming back. but there is a lot of people out there, and a lot of
4:01 pm
law enforcement people that i don't know that work days and nights to make this happen. i would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this happen. >> ed: it so difficult to watch. i've interviewed some of the relatives of other angel families and they tell me that they want the public to know this is an example of families being separated forever compared to the temporary's family separation at the border that the left has attacked the president about again and again. >> i'm sorry for those that are being affected. but look at my family and thousands of other angel families that are permanently separated and permanently affected by the lack of keeping sovereignty of our nation. >> i met henry come in again for martha maccallum. here's what we know about the man accused of gunning down officers singh on christmas night during what should have been a routine dui stop. 33-year-old gustavo perez arriaga is a mexico, in the u.s.
4:02 pm
illegally. he was arrested twice before and yes, as known gang affiliations, often using different aliases. authorities say he was trying to flee to mexico after the shooting. and we have learned his brother and a coworker have also been arrested for attempting to mislead the authorities. arriaga's stunning rap sheet has infuriated officials. sheriff adam christianson is bluntly pointing the finger at california sanctuary laws which limit their operations with federal immigration authorities. sanctuary policies again that the president has repeatedly railed against. the sheriff tonight is demanding answers and flatly declaring if this illegal immigrant had been deported or previous dui arrests. officer singh, a legal immigrant, would still be alive. >> this is a criminal illegal alien with prior criminal activity that should have been
4:03 pm
reported to i.c.e. law enforcement was prohibited, because of sanctuary laws, and that led to the encounter with officer singh. now let's go back to ron, an immigrant. immigrated here lawfully and legally to pursue his american dream. he achieved that goal. in his dream was taken from him. no, you shouldn't politicize it, but we have to have a conversation about restrictive distillation that puts our communities at risk. >> ed: you can hear his brother sobbing. here now, dave waltz, and francisco hernandez. good evening, gentlemen. >> thank you mr. henry, thanks for having me. >> ed: when you hear the brother they are sobbing and the sheriff saying flatly, this officer's should still be alive,
4:04 pm
what goes through your mind? >> mr. arriaga came from mexico to arizona, but of course he came to california because in the end california is a sanctuary state. officials at the local level tell him basically, we will protect you from deportation. not only do you not have to worry about being deported but we will protect you from that. the l.a. county sheriff himself came out and said it, he will forcefully remove i.c.e. from l.a. county jail. what more do you need to hear? support for california politicians, for criminal aliens, is through the roof and it's got to stop. i have a client whose fiance was killed by a guy who was deported a five times and arrested for five felonies. he came back, got drunk, smashed into this beautiful young woman and killed her. it's a hung jury that's being
4:05 pm
retried in january for murder. >> ed: horrible tragedies one after the other. and cisco? >> bottom line, no one can oppose the federal government or immigration customs enforcement. they could have picked them up anytime. have you seen this guy's rap sheet? >> now you are interrupting. deporting him would not have done anything. he would have been backed back because -- >> so the court would not have done anything? >> i will let you respond, but you just said deporting him would have done nothing. the sheriff, who knows better than you and i, said this. now i will let you react but let's listen to the sheriff. >> it could have been preventable. then under sp 54 in california, based on two arrests for dui and some other active warrants that this criminal has out there, law enforcement would have been prevented, prohibited, from
4:06 pm
sharing any information with i.c.e. about this criminal gang member. ladies and gentlemen, this is not how you protect a community. >> ed: francisco, answer him directly please. >> that is an absolute lie. when you book somebody into the jail, the fingerprints go through the fbi and immigration and customs enforcement. a city, county, a state cannot block the federal government and this guy should be serving a life sentence in federal prison. what do you mean the sanctuary city? you are correct, this tragedy should not have occurred but even if you build a wall right now, that would have kept him in but not out. >> so how was he not supported? why wasn't he deported, number one, and number two, how dare you call the sheriff a liar. he's in this community -- >> he is lying that immigration couldn't have picked him up.
4:07 pm
homeland security picked him up and the federal authority should have picked him up. he should be serving a life sentence in prison already. >> they are releasing these guys without telling ins and i.c.e. the sacramento politicians don't want guys like mr. arriaga jailed or deported, they want their votes. that's why it's happening on a national level and you know it, francisco. it's all about power. >> david, you made your point. >> the federal government does not need a city or state to honor their detainer, they can go pick him up anytime they want. it's a courtesy, it is a committee to the state and the city. >> i have heard you make this
4:08 pm
case, and in practice, when i'm trying to get at is that the sheriff on the ground is dealing with the murdered police officer and is saying you are wrong. this is not at henry. are you telling me that the sheriff who is dealing with an officer, who by the way left behind a widow and a 5-year-old son -- >> why did the sheriff let him out in the first place? he has a duty to withhold the constitution and they shouldn't have let him out. >> hold on francisco. he was convicted of 1 dui -- >> ed: you are talking over each other. >> he had one dui and wasn't deported, convicted of another dui and wasn't deported and was suspected of committing another dui, was being chased and he didn't want to get caught from the third dui so he shot and killed the officer. that was his solution. he came to america not for a better life or to work hard for his family like a lot of immigrants do but to live a life
4:09 pm
of crime. >> ed: francisco, a final point. >> you are right about that, he should have been in federal prison, -- he failed to do his job. >> this sheriff says that he was blocked essentially -- >> who blocked him? he's the top gun in the county. who will block the sheriff, the top gun in the county? who blocked him, a city council member? seriously? he's covering his up behind didn't turn them over to federal authorities. >> he didn't have anything to do with not notifying the federal authorities at all. you can notify the federal authorities. it's a federal government, they don't have to listen to. >> when the jailers don't do it, the guys don't get picked up. >> they are his employees. >> ed: it we will not solve this tonight. this is a big problem in this
4:10 pm
country and we are trying to get at it. let's now go to the republican who represents the state of california where all this has been playing out. he's joining us from washington, and obvious the congressman you know better than i, there's still a battle going on between the president and democrats on the hill about funding for the wall. first of all, how do you solve this problem when you have some people in the country as you just heard saying that the sheriff who says of the sanctuary policies are to blame is a liar? >> francisco, i don't know if he's a liar but he saying things that aren't true. the fact is that when i came into office 18 years ago, the county of orange, north of san diego, already had a program. and this was under bill clinton, had a program where they formally not only honored the detainers but they also allowed ice to come in and evaluate people to find out whether they were unlawfully in the country
4:11 pm
because at the federal determination. so that they then could be held, even if they were only in for a dui. since then my state has systematically stopped that kind of activity and that's what sanctuary means, you do not ask if they are illegal and you do not cooperate. and so these sheriff's hands are tied by california state law, and it's been a fight and it's a fight that quite frankly citizens are losing. >> ed: we will get to democrats in a minute but i want to let the president off the hook. in the campaign obviously he talked bluntly about a big beautiful wall that was going to be paid for by mexico. now he's talking about a $5 million down payment that's being paid for by taxpayers. then he says maybe it will be a fence on a wall, then he tweeted, it has to be a wall or i will shut down the border.
4:12 pm
how do democrats negotiate with democrats? >> almost 20 years ago, then duncan hunter, congressman hunter, began building a fence. he's building it with military reserve personnel and that made our border the safest border, not only the busiest border but the safest border with mexico. whether you use a metal fence or a wall, as long as it gives the border patrol the ability to safely navigate and get to an area without being swarmed or overpowered, it works. so fence or wall, the president is right. what you need is a barrier, and it is what they have been begging for four years. you have people on that will talk all kinds on both sides,
4:13 pm
and they have men and women who stay on the ground and they will all tell you what they need. >> i want to get to the california democrats. this officer was gunned down on christmas night, and she said i'm writing to express my strong concern about children detained and brought border patrol custody. then on thursday another tweet, read my letter calling for a hearing on the deaths of two young children and border patrol has to this month. we must know more about the care and treatment of these kids. she has tweeted absolutely nothing about this officer being gunned down by an illegal immigrant in your state and in her state. and quickly, ted lieu, a congressman and one of your colleagues as you know how to whole series of tweets attacking the president about the wall, saying he doesn't know what he's doing. i sent a tweet saying, the killing of police officer ron singh, have you sent any tweets
4:14 pm
or full statements on the police officer killed in your home state? if he responds later, he hasn't responded to me, why are democrats in your estate not even saying we are sorry that this officer was killed by illegal immigrants? >> they've made a decision that open borders and the policy of it works for them politically. what's really sad is the fact that you have to be compassionate on both sides and supporting law enforcement, having an orderly system, that all is how you all save lives on both sides. the fact is for decades, anywhere you have better border security, you save lives, not just border patrol agents and mice, we save lives of those immigrants. i think that's important and i think anyone who doesn't do both is missing the point. to be compassionate is to have security and an immigration policy that allows people to
4:15 pm
come here illegally. >> congressman darrell, i appreciate you coming in. at least one branch of the military backed up president trump and cnn claims, he was signing hats for soldiers in iraq. so why are some democrats still accusing him of politicizing his visit with the troops? that's next. for each job exxonmobil creates, many more are created in the community. because energy touches so many industries, it supports 10 million u.s. jobs. ♪ ♪

>> ed: well, the attacks on president trump's visit to iraq and continue tonight after that impromptu signing of memorabilia, some hats with troops, and the airport says there's no rule against airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president. but some democrats are still not backing down. >> it was entirely inappropriate for the president to visit our troops and talk about a highly controversial issue, and blaming democrats for shut down. >> joining me now is democratic congressman john garamendi, at senior member of the house armed services committee. so nbc news kicked some of this off and i want to show you the first headline that they had a period. tuesday on christmas day, trump becomes the first president since 2002 not to visit troops at christmas time.
4:20 pm
poorly timed, since he was basically almost in the air at that point on the way to iraq. they have since clarified sort of to say the trump becomes a first president since 2002 not to visit troops on or before christmas. congressman, are some critics of the president just spitting here is because of trump derangement syndrome? >> i don't know about that, but i'm glad that the president did go. whether he should have gone sooner or later isn't material. the fact that he did go is important. presidents have traditionally done that, at least recent presidents, and that's all good. hopefully that will provide some moral support for the troops that are there. >> ed: it when you say you haven't heard about the syndrome, you have folks at cnn raising questions about why in the world was a president signing hats, that somehow this might be a violation of the military rule. then of course we and others have found pictures of barack obama in 2008.
4:21 pm
he was on the campaign trail and then visited the troops. he was signing autographs and it was a nice thing to do for barack obama. donald trump does it and somehow it's the end of the world. >> it's not the end of my world, it's not the end of donald's world and it's not the end of the troops' world. go ahead and sign the memorabilia, there is no problem with that. there are some questions i think legitimately raised about the attack that he made to the troops about democrats. i think that was inappropriate, certainly supporting the troops. we all do, democrats and republicans, but that's another issue. signing hats, signing memorabilia, assigning plaques, i have at it. >> ed: last point on this but your question about the politics and talking about the wall in front of the troops, did you raise similar objections and then president obama is on the way out of office. he talks to troops and a farewell address and a tax president-elect trump about the
4:22 pm
travel ban and a whole host of other issues. why was it okay for barack obama? but somehow donald trump does it. and you are saying it's political. and i don't think it's particularly appropriate, and during that particular time of year. they should make it political, either way. whether obama did it or jumped at it. either way it's not a good thing to do. and one of your democratic colleagues, and there is going to be a ransom that will be required, pay it. it's the right thing to do because we are never going to be able to overcome the 60 votes in the senate.
4:23 pm
his point being the president wants the money for the wall. why won't you and other democrats negotiate with him and give him at least some of that money, so you can give him a permanent fix on daca. >> i'm all for compromise, particularly if that's a permanent fix for a daca, all the better. one thing about the $5 billion is, on the armed some comic services committee as i am and also on the transportation infrastructure, we require the government agencies to tell us precisely what they want the money for her, not just generally for a road or in the airport, but rather exactly where it's going to be and how it's going to be spent. i think the president owes that to the congress. if he has $5 billion for border security fences or walls, tell us exactly where it is, so it's going to be built. i think that's appropriate for any president to do. >> ed: you have a reasonable approach there, but nancy pelosi said that chuck schumer seems to
4:24 pm
want to cut the deal. but nancy pelosi doesn't want to cut the deal with the president along the lines that you just said. why won't your leaders in the house say to the president, okay. give us something and we will give you -- maybe you won't get 5 billion but you will get some of the wall. >> i asked pelosi staff about this and the word i got back is the white house is not communicated anything since that meeting in the oval office that went viral. so yes, there needs to be discussions and my understanding is, in fact i know, i got the memo today, offered three different ways to solve this problem. any one of those three ways she was willing to do and they did include money for border security in one way and the other was simply to pass the existing appropriation bill with the exception of homeland security, keeping not for additional debate. >> ed: congressman, we will see if they finally come together. we appreciate it, happy new year. >> happy new year to you, too.

♪ >> ed: president barack obama closing out the year with an annual list of his top movies, books and songs of 2018. his favorite music picks range from jazz classics to printheads. also some eye-popping choices including "i like it" from rapper carty b and a song from beyonce and jay-z titled something we can't show up, essay on the show. we have tammy bruce and richard fowler, both fox news contributors. good to have you both here. now in the interest of full disclosure, richard and i have talked about this off the air, i should note that to be fair, in the favorite books of 2018, the president has a lot of choices," a long walk" by nelson mandela,
4:30 pm
and "why liberalism failed" and "how democracy died." the former president doing some deep thoughts. what stuck out for you, tammy? >> he has made a tradition of this, he's done this every year. i think for a lot of people these lists can be virtues signaling. like look at what i'm doing. or, i'll look at what you should be reading. a lot of people on the list especially with the music are friends of the obama so you can't blame them for that, i suppose. but i think that when i grew up, a favorite teacher of mine said that, while it's great to read for pleasure and important to do so and, to read to reinforce or expand your understanding of your own point of view, it's particularly important to read things that you know you will disagree with so that you hear other arguments. and you can also refine your own point of view. >> may be on that, ben rhodes,
4:31 pm
the national security aide to come his book is on the list. i noticed tucker carlson's book is not on the list. >> shocker. >> i'm not shocked by that at all. but here's the thing. we talk about music all the time in the green room and, it's such a good song and barack obama is not alone in his like for the song. this song was the sixth most extremist song on apple music globally. so around the world, people love carty b and they like the song. because it just makes your head bob because everybody likes it like that, right? >> and it confirms that barack obama is hip. >> i also thought it was interesting and appropriate that at the top of his list of books you must read was of course, shall obama, the former first lady, her book which has been a runaway success. but that brings me to the next little list. gallup does this thing, who is
4:32 pm
most admired? michelle obama tops the list of women. you can see, it's very divided, and melania trump's at 4%. what stuck out for you? >> does list every year, what's interesting is hillary out the top spot for 17 years. it's more of a popularity of the media list at the time, a random phone call to i think about a thousand people and you can choose whomever you want. generally what you get are people who have been positively portrayed in the media and are in the media a lot. she is coming off of her book tour so it's not that surprising. but as you noted, it's 15%, so it's not an deep analysis of who the majority of americans admire. but it does tell you who they have been portraying positively up until this point, which was hillary. that means for some reason,
4:33 pm
hillary is not at the top spot because the media is not portraying her in the same fashion. >> let's talk about the book for just a minute. it's the number one selling book of the year and remember, the book came out in less than a month and it's already sold 15 million copies. michelle obama on this book tour is not selling out small bookshops or starbucks coffee shops, she's selling out arenas. and that's because the book talks about what everyday women go through. infertility, marriage counseling, dealing with children. thing is that every day women go through. >> so that leads to the question, when you talk about filling up arenas, clintons tried to do that themselves and they had a hard time, they were going to groupon to sell tickets. michelle obama didn't need to do that. she keeps saying she will never run for political office but now she is the most admired woman according to gallup. could she run for office? >> when she was first lady, her
4:34 pm
number one mission was, what can we do to impact the lives of women and girls? this book is about the same thing. i think for the rest of her life, she will commit to how we can impact women and girls not only in the united states but globally. >> i also don't know -- i think they are enjoying their life. i think they are enjoying it more now than they were when they were in the white house. mrs. obama expressed on a few occasions how she did not like that environment. so why would she want to go back into an environment when they have tremendous influence right now in most mediums, and she can have an influence and continue to do what she wants to do in the popular framework without having to deal with the swamp. >> i think tammy is right. and there's one part of the book where she talked about that. she talked about the day that the supreme court decided to legalize marriage and the jubilation outside of the white house and all she wanted to do was be part of it. so she snuck out of the back
4:35 pm
door so they could be with the people. nobody saw them but they were outside as the white house was lit up with a rainbow which speaks to who she is as a person and why this book is the number one book in the nation this yea year. >> same-sex marriage, we should clarify that. >> ed: up next, congress is recruiting lawyers. it's a sign that democrats are deciding to go all in on investigating president trump when the assumed power in the house next week. we have more on that, next. >> president trump: if they've been us this investigation fatigue. it's been a long time. i have nothing, zero. you know why? because there is nothing. ♪ new robitussin honey. because it's never just a cough.

>> ed: it tonight democrats say they are hiring, and it could signal where they are headed when the house comes in next week. democrats are recruiting lawyers with experience in "administrative law, oversight work, and executive branch of investigative counsel." so will it be investigations or legislation? joining me now is a member of the house judiciary committee. good to see you congressman. a couple nights ago we had the former dnc chair at window on and he insisted to me, look, his advice to his own party is, legislate, don't just investigate. do you by that? >> i buy that he said that.
4:40 pm
and kind of like jim carrey would say, somebody stop me. that's after every aspect and every decision. i had my friend john garamendi on before me, and he is my friend and i hope that doesn't kill his political career. but it would help if trump would just say exactly where he wants the wall and what he wants. i seem to recall that the obama administration had billions of dollars to build a wall, a virtual wall, and janet napolitano said, we are not going to use it. and, if we don't put money out there for a while, but a note of
4:41 pm
encouragement, we took a stand. unfortunately it was after we lost the majority. but it bodes well and it's inconsistent with the keep feeding the rope and they will hang themselves. but i told him once, you said feed him rope, and, they have used it to hog-tie us. >> they have said they are not going to legislate. when asked seals and others talk about a canon of subpoenas, 85 different areas that they want to go after the president on, do they think this will be all about democrats on the attack? >> i'm telling you, they won't be able to help themselves. the democrats once were big on privacy rights. and when they saw how important it was for google and some of these internet providers to support the democrats, they don't want to do anything to
4:42 pm
make them mad and it's amazing how they backed off some of the things they use to agree, i could believe in, being anti-orwellian. they are not anymore, but they are going to do the investigations. they are out there hiring like crazy, lawyers, they are coming in and helping with subpoenas. it is healthy to have oversight investigations and i think republicans didn't do enough of them. but you don't need a colonoscopy after every minor decision and i think that's where they are headed. >> ed: michael cohen has been under the microscope -- >> he needed a colonoscopy. >> ed: while we believe that that for another program. that was picked up in the area of prague and 2016 which he has vehemently denied. a reporter went on msnbc and
4:43 pm
said this. >> did your sources see the interceptions themselves or are they passing along information from other people? >> of the sources, yes. government sources, and some of the sources are people who told us that they have trusted intelligence type sources that they get information from. >> have you seen the intercept? >> no. >> were you able to see anything to corroborate these sources? anything that would give you further evidence? >> i wish we had to. >> they do this major story and it now appears that sources were second or third hand. >> and we now know that dossier prepared by steel, he hadn't been to russia in years. we don't know how third or fourth or fifth or hearsay it
