jillian: yeah. rob: big meeting today at the white house. they are going to try to hash this thing out. jillian: we will see what happens. and we will have it for you tomorrow morning. "fox & friends" starts right now. have a good day. >> this is a humanitarian crisis. a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul. this barrier is absolutely critical to border security. >> we can secure our border without an ineffective, unnecessary border imawl. tries her hand at responding to the president's prime time address. >> presidents should be defending why we are funding such an agency at all. because, right now, what we are see something -- >> great news here deputy attorney general rod rosenstein is expected to leave his role in the coming weeks. >> this is going to complicate confirmation hearings for bill barr
because he would de facto be in charge of the russia probe. >> secretary of state mike pompeo could land in egypt at any moment. the top diplomat is expected to slam the obama administration middle east policy in a major speech in cairo today. >> this is going to be the best kay of my life my life live in new york city for a january 9th. it's a wednesday. welcome to "fox & friends." this is the post game show. brian: if you stayed up late and saw the president. then you saw as the "new york post" says dr. nos. we heard from the president and the democrats. it's very clear they are not going anywhere right now in washington. brian: might not be the best day of their lives. there is going to be a meeting in the oval office today with congressional leaders or excuse me the white house with the congressional leaders to say okay, now that we both spoke
to a national audience. what's changed? it looks like the democrat are digging. in we want to open up the government first. i thought the president did a fine job outlining exactly why we are in the situation we are in right now without being antagonistic but outlining the urgency of the matter. ainsley: he talked about the southern border being a pipeline for illegal drugs. the families he has met. held the hands of weeping parents because they lost their children toil legal immigrants and he detailed some of those horrific crimes. he also talked about the humanitarian crisis, the crisis of the heart and soul. steve: right. exactly. what the president was doing last night was making his pitch. both sides are really dug in. there is a new morning consult political poll out that shows more americans think there is a crisis than don't think. brian: 42% to 37%. steve: what the president is trying to do is get the people in the middle, the independence who have not taken a side yet to look at images like that and think is that a bad thing for the country?
who is right? would a southern border wall work or now as he referred to it a steel barrier or are we fine with what we have got? if you missed it, here is part of his nine minutes last night. >> america proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation. but, all americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal migration. our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs. ice officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal record. this barrier is absolutely critical to border security. it's also what our professionals at the border want and need. the border wall would very quickly pay for itself. the cost of illegal drugs exceeds $500 billion a year. for those who refuse to compromise in the name of border security, i would ask
imagine if it was your child, your husband, or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken. every member pass a bill that ends this crisis. brian: right now, there is not only -- there is a crisis at the border even though some democrats don't feel that way. the stats back it up. but, there is also a sense that with the shutdown happening it's going to begin to take a toll on a portion of the maybe hundreds of thousands of people that depend on a federal paycheck. so you have to wonder even though the president is going to have his way the irs is going to be funded. the returns are going to happen. even though he has gone out of his way to say the snap program is going to get funded others furloughed paycheck to paycheck. that's going to turn on the heat arguably on the president and trump administration than democrats. steve: ultimately those federal employees will wind up getting their paycheck
retroactively. ainsley: look at the numbers and why the president feels like the wall needs to go up as soon as possible. because he says between 2017 and 2018, there have been 100,000 arrests for assault, 30,000 for sex crimes. 4,000 for homicides. ice arrests over the course of a year. also, drugs seized at the border. he talks about what a probable this is from january to august of last year 2018. cocaine, more than about -- well, a little less than 48,000 pounds of cocaine seized. about 5,000 pounds of heroin. 283,000 pounds of marijuana. and 67,000 pounds of meth as well as 1300 pounds of fentanyl. steve: that last number right there 1300 pounds of fentanyl. you heard how powerful it is. apparently, according to stories i have read. 2 milligrams can kill a person. i was looking for the legalitlethality of it 120 pouns
seized in a nebraska state patrol raid 26 pounds could kill 26 million people. and this is 10 times that amount. ainsley: more americans are going to die from illegal drugs than killed in the entire vietnam war. brian: some good news, too. i think mexico is starting to see a problem. they are beginning, i know what you are saying, finally, to southern border. their southern border is bolstered up it will help our southern border. steve: maybe more on the northern border. brian: but their south. steve: a step in the right direction. brian: send hundreds of guards down there obrador who was not supposed to have cinergy with this president is going to try to make relations better between the two countries a great start. the most disingenuous statements you are going to hear the statements nancy pelosi keeps making about a wall offense that she voted for twice being immoral. the president addressed that directly last night.
those who suggest a barrier is immoral, why do wealthy politicians build walls, gates and fences arranged their homes? they don't build walls because they hate the people on the outside but because they love the people on the inside: the only thing that is immoral is the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized. steve: so there he is turning her words on her. nobody should be surprised that donald trump made that speech last night. some have said he was more presidential than they have ever seen him before. brian: lindsey graham. steve: it was his first oval office appearance. ever since he took that escalator ride three and a half years ago he has made illegal immigration central to his campaign. and now central to his presidency. meanwhile, the democrats in congress, a lot of them got elected because they said, look, sometimes getting done
from this republican-led house, and senate, so washington. a lot of house democrats are now with jobs because they said, okay, we are going to go to washington. we're going to get stuff done. fast forward to right now. they are not getting anything done. the president has actually compromised. he no longer wants a concrete wall. he will take a steel barrier. he is adding $800 million to help with the humanitarian crisis. and to help facilitate the kids and the families getting through. he has given, according to what we have heard from white house officials, a lot, but those two have not bundle. ainsley: no. they haven't. they said they wanted their voices heard. the president was going to get his time on prime time television and they wanted to speak as well and explain why the wall was immoral. chuck schumer and nancy pelosi came out and spoke at the podium. here is what they said. >> united states having failed to get mexico to pay for his ineffective, unnecessary border wall. and unable to convince the congress on the american
people to foot the bill has shut down the government. our efforts in congress our border is far more secure today, between 2005 and 2000, a vast amount of progress has been made on our borders and ports of entry. the progress includes 9,000 new border patrol field agents, over 630 miles of border fence that create a significant barrier to illegal immigration on our southern land border. brian: if you look at president obama's man in charge of border security, he says fence works. the numbers show that 90% of crossings go down when an effective fence or barrier is put in. for chuck schumer you just saw him talking 2009 how he is for the fence and need for a fence. border security. now you say we don't. he voted 8 separate times to build a barrier at the border. the president has changed what he is demanding it be made out of. if they would just stick with what they believed in the past, we wouldn't have
an impasse right now. and as the president mentioned last night within 45 minutes we would have a deal. and nancy pelosi twice voted to build a barrier at the border. what changed? steve: it sounds like what's going to happen the president is going to have lunch with senate republicans today. then is he going to meet with chuck and nannies i think 3:00 this afternoon. then he says it sounds like is he going to fly to texas tomorrow. he is going to be negotiating with the democrats for a couple of days. then if they are inflexible, he will, according to somebody close to the president and "the washington post," apparently is he going to declare a national emergency and end the shutdown. he did not mention ending the national -- a national emergency last night. brian: 5. $7 billion will get you 200 miles of barrier. meanwhile, 10 minutes after the hour. more breaking news. fox news alert. steve: deputy attorney general rod rosenstein expected to step down in the coming weeks according to the news this morning from abc. ainsley: comes around the same time the president's
nominee for attorney general takes office. brian: been such a smooth tenure. griff jenkins live in washington. hey, griff, why now? >> this is breaking want fox news can confirm that the man overseeing the mueller investigation as you mentioned deputy attorney general rod rosenstein will depart in the coming weeks. around the time that his -- the president's pick for attorney general william barr is confirmed. this comes as rosenstein's rocky relationship with president trump has shown no signs of improving the president has not shied away from it attacking his deputy ag who took over the russia probe after attorney general jeff session recused himself. rosenstein sought to president. however, we hear there is no indication at this point that rosenstein is forced out. rather doj officials told fox news that rosenstein also considered this to be about a two year appointment, and he wants a smooth transition to the new attorney general. i can tell you as well that
william barr has an important meeting today. he will meet with two key senators critical to his confirmation. he will sit down with chuck grassley the outgoing chairman of the senate judiciary committee and lindsey graham the incoming chairman. now william barr's confirmation hearings are expected to begin next tuesday, guys. but, this story just breaking right now as i talk to you. it wilrewill give you more as we get it. rosenstein has been talking to the white house with these plans in the last few days. steve: the shock is that it turns out after all those stories we heard he is not getting fired. sounds like going on own terms. always sounded like a two year term about two years time to move on. brian: i don't see it affecting the barr confirmation he was in charge of it anyway. they were going to take it away from rod rosenstein's anyway. it's in whitaker hands right now because is he acting. ainsley: 12 minutes after the hour.
embattled sheriff scott israel was slammed for his response to the parkland school shooting. reports are swirling that he is going to be suspended. governor ron desantis is set to make that call. he is coming in and talk to brian and set the record straight next. brian: not halloween why is this guy dressed up as a giant. you are not going to believe it. ♪ i would do this for you ♪ baby i'm not moving on. ♪ love you long after you are gone. ♪ for you ♪ to help you maintain balance and help keep you active and well-rested. because hey, tomorrow's coming up fast. nature's bounty. because you're better off healthy.
♪ >> this is a humanitarian crisis, a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul. this is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the american citizens we serve. to every member of congress pass a bill that ends this crisis. steve: there you have got president trump last night making the case for border wall funding in his first ever oval office address. but, will bringing his message directly to the american people help bring the democrats to the negotiating take. they are there but they are not budging. joining us now to discuss is newly sworn in governor ron desantis. he joins us live right now from tallahassee. good morning, governor. >> good morning, steve. steve: i know you did not see the address live because
you were in attendance at your inaugural ball, congratulations by the way for that and you did watch the tape replay though. what did you think? >> i thought the this the was very effective. when you think of the president trump, you think of the big trump rallies. you think of him firing off on twitter. he has been effective at both of those. i think he has showed he can be really effective in that one-on-one straight to camera oval office address. he made a number of really good points. i think he should probably do more of that going forward. because i think it was very well done. steve: well, he also at one point said that folks watching, if they feel that it is a crisis at our southern border, call your member of congress. she used to be a member of congress. you know what it's like for the staff to get thousands of calls after something like that. it comes down to this though. is there a crisis on our southern border. because chuck and nannies essentially said yesterday that he has manufactured a crisis. he is telling a lie. >> well, s so here in florida
we are looking at ways to combat the opioid epidemic. steve. >> as you know, most of those opioids, the fentanyl coming in the street opioids over the southern border. china sends it, the cartels then bring it across. i want to stop illegal immigration but, to me, fighting the drug epidemic, i mean, that would really, really make a huge difference. so there are certain things i can do as governor in florida and we'll do. but, man, we really need to stop the product from coming into our country. steve: do you think the president should declare a national emergency? >> you know, i think in just a normal sense i think there is an emergency. i wasn't even aware of some of these provisions of law in terms of from the dod, so i just have to look at it but i mean, clearly, this has not only been a persistent problem but something that has seemed to have gotten worse over the years first president that wants to address it in a good way. steve: meanwhile there is
some news you have been mentioned a lot in the last 24 hours. apparently the sheriff in scott israel sheriff at the time of the parkland shooting has been telling staff that he is getting suspended over the response you could make the call. what's going to happen? >> right, in florida the governor has the ability to suspend local officials for incompetence, for misfeigns for neglect of duty. we just had a few days ago a report from the marjorie stoneman douglas commission over 400 pages. i have read a lot of it and i will continue to read it basically it was really troubling to read some of the things that could have been done to prevent one of the most awful tragedies we have had. we are going to end up -- we will make an announcement on that probably by the end of the week. steve: we'll stay tuned for that brand new governor of the great state of florida ron desantis, thank you very much. >> thanks. steve: 20 minutes after the top of the hour. after president trump
addressed the nation last night democratic congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez slammed ice implying the agency calls death. tom homan used to lead that agency. he is here with reaction. appointment no matter who you are, it's important to go for an annual check-up, and when you do remember to be open and honest with your doctor about how you're feeling. because how you're doing emotionally, affects your physical health - and vice versa mr. danson, would you mind? i love doing this thanks, but i just need you to fill out the medical history. that's embarrassing go in for your annual check-up, and check in physically and emotionally cigna. together all the way. do i have to do the age part? okay

really defending why we are funding such an agency at all. because right now what we are seeing is death, right now what we are see something a violation of human rights. brian: joining us with his reaction is the former ice director fox news contributor now tom homan, tom? this must just have you steamed. >> you know, it's incredible. i mean every time she opens her mouth she is wrong. supposedly she went to cleaning in boston. she must be an embarrassment to that institution. she needs to do her homework. meanwhile no child tied in ice custody it was border patrol. they did everything they could do to save that child's life. you want to blame somebody tore death and custody. blame the democrats that caused these loopholes. when you talk about human rights violations does she realize ice has arrested and removed hundreds of human rights violators in this country including nazis and people that commit war crimes in certain parts of europe?
we actually arrest a lot of human rights violators. she ought to be saying thank you. she is from new york. ice agents have arrested and removed thousands of criminals from the streets of new york. that were released from jails that she supports. so, a thank you would be nice rather than misinformation that she always puts out. steve: as have you said in the past. ice agents are simply enforcing the laws that congress enacted. if you have got a problem with it, go to congress. there is something else that caught our eye this morning, tom. that is the center for immigration studies has done an analysis, and they figured out the cost of each illegal immigrant here in the united states. over a lifetime it's $82,191 per lifetime, per illegal crosser. which is actually more than the annual median income here in the united states which is $61,000. and the argument and the president has made this in the past if we could stop the illegal immigration the wall would essentially pay for itself by stopping the
people who are a drain on society. >> absolutely. i said it the other day on the network. $5 billion is nothing. this wall will pay for itself in a matter of a couple years because less illegal immigration means less detention costs, which is ice's budget is $8 billion a year. less detention costs, less immigration court costs, less circuit costs. let social services being used by illegal alien families that come in. because, remember, the illegal families come, in they have u.s. citizen child the first thing they do is get in social services. the cost of illegal immigration it's as high as $120 billion a year. the wall would pay for itself just from the cost savings of illegal immigration being slowed and decreased. ainsley: they also say in that study if they bring in children and grandchildren it can cost americans anywhere between 94,000 and $104,000 per illegal immigrant over the course of their lifetime. i know you sat down with the president before his oval office address. what did you guys talk about. >> i had a meeting -- i had
a meeting in the white house and, you know, i talked to the president pretty occasionally. my thoughts to the white house were this. i said, you know, i'm glad the president is doing the address to the nation. nancy and chuck refuse to listen to security briefing by the secretary. senate confirmed secretary. wanted to give him a state of address on what's going on on the border. they refused to hear the data. so i said on this network the president needs to go straight to the american people and give them the data that chuck and nancy refuse to hear. because this data is real. this isn't a manufactured crisis. i mean, we have seen the caravan. and i just -- i implore to sheriff with the american people the facts and talk about effectiveness of the wall. i think the president did a great job last night. i think the rebuttal by democrats was embarrassing to say this is a manufactured crisis. we all saw the caravans. i mean we have heard the children that died. we have seen what's going on on the border. to say it's manufactured is ridiculous.
brian: tom, every time they say that these barriers, these walls, these fences don't work, they are really calling you a liar, what you have done and seen up close personal they both do work. you can't both be right. what are your thoughts for that? >> thank you for that. that's one thing that stopped me last night. she said it once. schumer said it twice. ineffective wall. so either they are outright lying about this or not reviewing the data that's available. every place a border has been built every place illegal immigration has went down and drug smuggling has went down. care about border security. everything they said about improving technology at the port of entry which is important. but then talk about what happens between the ports of entry the one thing she said they are going to fund innovation to detect unauthorize dollars crossings. what the hell is that? she can't even say the word illegal alien. she can't even admit to the fact that entering this country illegal little is a crime. it's not an unauthorized crossing it's a crime.
we don't want to detect it. we want to stop it. the way you stop it is with a wall and with additional border patrol personnel. when the caravan was rushing the border they would be standing in mexico today if it wasn't for the men and women of the border patrol standing there. brian: playing politics. tom homan, thanks so much. >> thank you. brian: meanwhile, straight ahead, this video you won't believe it. a highway sign falls and crushes a cancer in the middle of the road. steve: my goodness. >> how that driver was able to survive. >> on this national law enforcement enforcement appreciation day. we were honoring. a panel of officers here to tawngeght the issues that are most important to them coming up next. ♪ only in america. ♪ people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar

general rod rosenstein expected to leave his role at the doj in the coming weeks. ainsley: rosenstein is overseeing the mueller probe in fact appointed mueller in that probe for the last two years. could this mean big changes for the special counsel? brian: here to weigh in is the constitutional law professor himself jonathan turley. is this a big surprise? >> i'm not that surprised. he wanted to make sure that the report was completed and he is going to be leaving around the time that many of us expected, at least party of the report if not the entire report to be given to the justice department. i was very critical of his appointment of mueller specifically. not his appointment of a special counsel. and also his failure to recuse himself. but, you also have to give him credit. he has been a steady hand at justice. very difficult times. and i think that he wanted to stick around to guarantee that this report crossed the finish line. and i think that's going to happen.
ainsley: we thought he was going to step down when jeff sessions did and whitaker was appointed as the acting and thought he would at the step down then and he didn't. he stayed on. are you saying you think the report is complete. >> i think the report is largely complete. many of us expected the report to come out sometime at the end of the year beginning of the new year. there is some time that will be needed by congress. they are losing runway if they want to take off from this report. time is of the essence for congress. they have a two-year clock running. steve: jonathan, over the last year or two, you have been on the channel a lot talking about the different things. we need answers to this and this and this. and mr. mueller is not necessarily looking into everything. the hope is, and you have suggested in the past that the inspector general, mr. horowitz at the department of justice is going to incover a lot of the stuff that we have always wanted the answers to. with democrats in charge of the house now, do you think that's still going to happen? >> i think it will.

listening. i think they made up their mind on his speech before listening to the merit of it as well. that's how this radical environment happens. that's how this polarization happens when people make up their mind on people and not issues. ainsley: democrats once for a barrier and now against it they are only against it because they want to go against the president? >> that played a large part in it when president trump proposes something before waiting to see what is in the proposal. this all stems from the lack of rule of law. we don't ever teach rule of law to young people anymore. go to college campus now not talking about the importance of defending our laws and now we have talked that you can ignore certain laws, entire policies, really if they don't make you feel good. ainsley: why was it important for you to go to the campus to do this and what was the campus and school's reaction. >> i think it's important because we have to bring if outside ideas and universities and all of america should be a marketplace of ideas where you hear both sides and make um your mind for yourself. that hasn't been ahappening. that's wife we do this campus reform to get people

law enforcement appreciation day. we're showing our appreciation by inviting our law enforcement officers on to the our fox square. brian: fox square has never been so safe. steve: i'm pretty sure there'll be no pickpockets or any type of crime happening on our square. so because it is national law enforcement day, if you see a man or woman who wears the uniform to keep us safe, go up to them and say thank you very much for what you do. ainsley: we should do it every day. especially today. steve: the president of the united states was on television last night, he talked for about nine minutes, he was followed by chuck schumer and nancy pelosi who gave the rebuttal. essentially, the president said there is a crisis at our southern border, and then chuck and nancy said there is not a crisis, it's manufactured. where are we now? well, the president has been making the case and will continue today when he has lunch with congressional senators on the republican side and then tomorrow he's going to fly to texas, he's making the case it
is a crisis. he's trying to make sure -- the most likely thing is he's probably going to declare it's going to be a national emergency. he did not mention that last night, but according to people close to him, that is the most likely option. bruin brian that would be bad. brian: that would be bad. next thing you know there'll be a democrat in office, and they'll say, well, climate change is a crisis, and here are the stats that show fish are dying. i just think that will be another legal fight, and then nothing gets done as the courts mull this through. ainsley: listen to the president last night if you missed it. >> over the years thousands of americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands more lives will be lost if we don't act right now. our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs. i.c.e. officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal
records. i've met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration. how much more american blood must we shed before congress does its job? some have suggested a barrier is immoral. the only thing that is immoral is the politicians to do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized. when i took the oath of office, i swore to protect our country, and that is what i will always do, so help me god. steve: there you hear the president, he really painted a picture of danger and death at our southern border and said it was a crisis. so going forward, what the administration's going to do over the next couple of days is they're going to say, look, this is a big problem. there are dem carrots who, in -- democrats who, in the past, have
said let's fund a wall, but now they don't. when a lot of america sees images like that, they think there's a problem there. and the fact that the president is at loggerheads with democrats over this because this is one of his central issues, his base loves to see him fighting. brian: but his base is not going to get him reelected, he's going to need more, and that was the meaning for the address last night. it was to get the general audience, as much as we think cable news controls the world, there's still a small section of people who have tvs. so last night everybody that had a chance to watch and listen. the president wants $5.7 billion to get another 200 miles of wall, 750 border patrol agents, 2,000 law enforcement personnel, 52,000 detention beds, and he wants to talk about it, but all democrats want to talk about is end the shutdown or no negotiation. ainsley: when you think about how hard you work, you're waking up this morning, you're trying to put food on the table, many
people go to jobs they don't like, and then you look at the numbers. you're spending about $can 80,000 -- $80,000 over the court of one of those illegals' lifetime to keep them here. you're working hard to pay for them. then you look at the numbers of people who are doing illegal drugs here, the president highlighted that last night, and then you hear him talk about, he said imagine if this were your child that were killed by an illegal alien. we hear kate steinle's parents, the fire chief parents in knox absolutely, tennessee, we heard about officer singh in california this weeking or last week, and talked to his family. many of you contributed to pay off his mortgage. he will never be there to see his little boy grow up. the president highlighted the air force veteran in california that was raped, murdered and beaten to death with a hammer by an illegal alien, the georgia alien who killed his neighbor, beheaded him. he talked about the ms-13 gang
members in maryland who killed a 16-year-old girl. you hear that and you wonder why nancy pelosi and chuck schumer are saying it's not a crisis? look at the video, look at the numbers. steve: when you look between 2017 and 2018, the number of arrests that i.c.e. made, they arrested 100,000 illegals for assault. they arrested 30,000 for sex crimes and 4,000 for homicides. 4,000 for homicides, which is extraordinary. and then you talk about the drugs, look at the cocaine. close to 50,000 pounds came over. about 5,000 pounds of heroin. over a quarter million pounds of marijuana. methamphetamine, 67,000 pounds, and fentanyl, 1300 pounds. two milligrams can kill a person. meanwhile, the u.s. chamber of commerce has sent letters to congressional leaders in the white house. they say, hey, reopen the
government, but do this: combine border security with a daca deal, which is what some republicans and democrats have said, and then the afl-cio with richard trumka, which represents a lot of the federal workers who are currently furloughed, they want the shutdown to end, but -- and this is key -- the big union does not want the democrats to give a nickel for the wall. brian: they're upset about the shutdown. they're talking at each other, not to each other, that's the frustration. senator lindsey graham's going to offer legislation thursday or friday that will have a pathway for daca and have all the legal reforms needed as well as money aside to build this barrier which the president has given in on but is not getting credit for. the he'd like to see these guys come together on some type of deal. tom homan was with us earlier. the experts say a barrier works, politicians say it doesn't. where does the rubber hit the road? listen. >> i think the president did a
great job last night. this isn't a manufactured crisis. i mean, we've seen the caravan, and i just, i implore to share with the american people the facts and talk about the effectiveness of the wall. every place a border barrier has been built, every place, illegal immigration has went down. to say it's manufactured is ridiculous. steve: the president went on television last night to sell america. is it working? i'm sure there's going polling coming out in the next 24 hurs or so. we're going to talk to sarah sanders, white house press secretary, in about 20 minute ifs about what the white house does next. we know the president is meeting with chuck and nancy today at 3:00. will anything happen? don't hold your breath, but you never know. brian: he's got to secure his caucus first, and that's part of the reason to visit the senate side, yesterday was the house side, so make sure there's not going to be much break. anne ames in the mean tile, jillian has some headlines for us. >> reporter: a police officer

>> my fellow americans, there is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. for every member of congress, pass a bill that ends this crisis. steve: president trump making a historic speech, it lasted about nine minutes from if the oval office, pushing for congress to approve a border barrier or at least talk about it. they're not talking about it. congresswoman liz cheney joins us now to react. congresswoman, welcome. i'm just wondering if anything changed from last night's address. what do you expect's going to be different today? >> well, i think the president did a terrific job of laying out both what the nature of the crisis, it's a humanitarian crisis and a national security crisis. the other thing that has not gotten enough attention is the fact that the white house has put on the table specific details about what the resources are needed for. and the democrats continue to refuse to negotiate. you know, we're in a situation, as the president said last night, i thought one of the most important points he made was we
can resolve in the in a 45-minute meeting. you saw chuck schumer and nancy pelosi last night try to explain and try to spin what's actually happening here. this could be resolved in a 45-minute meeting, and i think the american people want it resolved. so we stand ready to negotiate. brian: congresswoman, the word is that the time is not on your side, that democrats gain the more people don't get paychecks because president trump said it's my shutdown. what do you think? >> i just think that's political games. we know that the most important thing we've got to do as elected officials is secure the border, keep the nation safe. and we're not going to be part of the, you know, playing partisan games here. we're going to make sure we do what's nets. we're standing with the president. we had a great meeting last night with vice president pence, and we're going to stand with the president on this one. brian: you know, looking back at bush 41, you had a sense of america was and do the respect we had towards politicians. and then you see this movie that no one saw, vice, on your dad and, basically, christian bale made it clear he compared
studying to play your dad as looking into studying to be satan. what is your reaction to some people who are going to think that's real history? >> well, look, i would just say that christian bale finally had the chance to play a real superhero, and he clearly screwed it up. i'm, obviously, incredibly proud of my dad, very proud and honored to be his daughter, and i haven't seen the movie. we're in a situation where we've got really important work to do to get the border secure and to make sure that the democrats stop playing games, come to the table. you know, i frankly don't understand how it is -- especially today on law enforcement appreciation day -- that they're taking the position that we ought to shut down i.c.e., have open borders, and they won't do their job, the job the american people elected them to do. so we are in this fight to make sure we do the right thing, we're going to continue to do that and stand with the president. brian: i think the american people want you guys to negotiate, and right now the democrats are not negotiating. >> that's right.

the incoming attorney general nominee bill barr. sources also say he long thought of his tenure as a two-year position, but it comes as rosenstein's rocky relationship with president trump has failed to show any signs of iming proving. and the president has not shied away from attacking his deputy attorney general publicly. however, abc news, who originally reported this story, says there's no indication that rosenstein is being forced out. there's no official comment from the white house yet. hopefully, we'll learn more. meanwhile, barr is set to meet with two key senators today who will be critical to his confirmation. he'll sit down first with chuck grassley, the outgoing chairman of the senate judiciary committee, and lindsey graham, the incoming chairman. barr's confirmation hearingses begin next tuesday, guys. steve: thank you very much. meanwhile, let's go out west where it is 4:25 in the morning in california, and their new governor, gavin new many, just taking the of office, and he's already inviting illegal

crazy idea starts in california and heads east. ainsley: california grabs are okay with this? -- khan januaries are okay with this? it's not common sense. it's okay for people to come into our country, they get to take home their cash, send it home to their family in mexico or wherever they are or keep their cash, meanwhile, every other tax-paying citizen in california has to pay for them to have health care? >> you've got it right. i think the thing that frustrates me the most is our politicians don't have to live the consequences of their policies. jerry brown has retired off to his 2,50-acre state, there's no ms-13 gang members living nearby. maxine waters lives in a $4.5 million mansion. gavin gavin newsom, his kids are in schools that are safe. how can we live that? they don't have to live these
consequences, so they don't care. steve: and it wasn't just sanctuary for all who were in the golden state. mike, listen to this, here is the new governor of california talking about not california, but the white house. >> here in california we will prove that people of good faith and firm will can still come together to achieve big things. we will offer an alternative to the corruption and the incompetence in the white house. steve: and when you hear things like that, where he's taking a shot at the president, you wonder is this guy running for president of the united states? yesterday here in new york, mayor de blasio announced health care to everybody. >> oh, or it's a race to as far left as possible. the state of california already has sued the trump administration 38 times. right? so california's the leader of the aunt-trump resistance -- the anti-trump resistance, and that's going to ramp up moving forward here.
about the health care for illegals, the california budget ten years ago was $890 -- 80 billion. today it's over $200 billion, and health care expenditures in california are $450 billion. that's two and a half times the entire budget of california to pay for everyone's health care, and that doesn't even include illegal immigrants' health care which make up a large portion as well. the top 1% already pay half of the income tax in california. there's no way we can possibly fund this. steve: oh, yes, there is, they're going to raise your taxes! >> well, that's it, but there's not enough money to possibly do that, but that's never stopped these progressives. brian: mike, what you do, people leaving are going to be more of a tax burden on ones who stay. which is a shame, because it's one of the most beautiful states we have. >> thanks, guys. ainsley: white house press secretary sarah sand orers joins us live with rod rosenstein's departure, that's coming up next. steve: plus, forget about

expected to cost $100 million a year, so who's paying for it? i think we know the answer. ainsley: here to weigh in is host of very nebraska and company, fox business channel, stuart varney. >> a, taxpayers are supposed to pay for this. b, if you believe $100 million a year will cover 600,000 illegals in new york, you're living in cuckoo land. it's going to be far more than that. brian: not only that, he wants to run for president. everything's free, free, free, but he will realize, if you show up, you don't have any papers, that means if you're all around, i'm going to go to new york city, it's time for free health care. >> i think you've got to sign up to start, you've got to sign up to get into this new health care coverage club. it's not like you just come in from san francisco or something and say, here i am, help me. i think you've got to sign up to start with. but looking there's all kinds of questions here. number one, why should american citizens living in new york city pay for the health care of
foreigners? why is that? they're here illegally, why do we have to pay for them and their health care coverage? steve: stuart, you know the argument is new york city pays more when the illegals and others go to the emergency room. that runs up a big bill that's going to be less. >> yep, i understand the argument, but the question, the moral question remains why are americans being forced to pay for illegals, the citizens of other countries, just because they're in new york city? ainsley: what's the answer to that? because we're all scratching our heads too, that's the million dollar question. >> well, you are just being harsh and mean, aren't you? how dare you refuse to treat innocent, suffering people who just happen to be illegals. how dare you do that. you, madam, are harsh. ainsley: aren't they make money though?

lawn. sarah, good morning. we know the president's going to meet with chuck and nancy and other top republicans and democrats later today, around 3:00. last night it was so clear, the president is fighting for the wall, and they are fighting against it. it just doesn't look like either side can budge, or they're going to look bad. >> it's actually more than that. the president's fighting not just for the wall, but he's fighting for border security. he's fighting for the protection and the safety of every american citizen. and the fact that the democrats want to continue to live in denial and pretend that things that are coming across this border that bring harm to people
in this country aren't happening, it's frankly, sad, it's ridiculous, and i think you saw that on full display last night in their response to the president. ainsley: yeah, what did you make of nancy pelosi and chuck schumer? they came out, and they were standing behind that podium, and chuck schumer said he thought that the wall was unnecessary. but if you look at what he said back in june 24th, 2009, he said we need to create a significant barrier. so why the change of heart? is it just because they want to go against the president, they don't want to win for him? >> i can't find a single other reason other than they want to fight this president on every single thing. they care more about playing politics than they do about protecting americans. i think what we saw last night was, frankly, pathetic excuse. if this is the face and the future of the democrat party, i think things are looking really good for republicans. but what our focus here is making sure that we get border security. we've laid out a very clear proposal and, in fact, in that
proposal we list things that the democrats wanted us to do, demonstrating our willingness to work together with democrats. they said they didn't want a concrete wall, so we made it a steel barrier. they requested specific types of technology to be included at ports of entry, we put that in our proposal. we have shown our willingness to work with them, now they have to show that they're willing to do their jobs and do something other than fight this president. brian: sarah, do you get the sense that friday the president's looking at as a real deadline? because that'll be the second time people miss their paychecks, and there's a real urgency between the address yesterday, and now the specific demands are out there. to you get the sense that something's going to change by friday? >> we sure hope so. the leadership will be at the white house later this afternoon, and it would be great if democrats demonstrated the same type of willingness that we have to actually get the job done, to do what they were elected to do. they all took an oath to uphold
the constitution, to protect the people of this country. let's hope they get serious about it and we see some of that this afternoon. steve: okay. and he's going to have lunch with congressional republicans up on capitol hill, then tomorrow he's going to go to, we believe, mcallen, texas, to survey what's going on at the southern border. he's making the case that there's a crisis down there. and last night while he did not, sarah, mention declaring a national emergency at the southern border, that certainly remains an option. the big question is how likely, given the fact that that -- if he does that, it could probably reopen the federal government. >> certainly still an option, something that's on the table, that's something that we are looking at. but at the end of the day, the best solution to fix this problem is not just a budgetary issue. we have legislative fixes that need to take place, and we need congress to help us do that. so we're hopeful, again, that they'll get serious about doing their jobs and work with us to accomplish these things. brian: sarah, also there's some
other news. rod rosenstein, the report -- and fox confirmed it -- will be resigning in the next two weeks. what could you tell us about that, and what's the president's reaction? >> i know the deputy attorney general has always plannedded to roughly stay around two years. i know he has a great deal of respect for the new nominee for attorney yen, mr. barr -- general, mr. barr, and i think they have a great relationship. i haven't spoken to the deputy attorney general myself, so i'll leave any announcements for him or the president to make when they want to do that, but certainly i don't think there's any willingness by the president or the white house to push him out. my guess is that he is making room for the new attorney general to build a team that he wants around him. eans iowans sarah, there was some discrepancies with some numbers. you had said border officials detained 4,000 suspected terrorists last year, and the customs and border patrol revealed the real numbers, and only six people on the security
watch list were detained over six months. we wanted to ask you about that. why the inflated figure? >> i should have said 4,000 at all points of entry, not just at the southern border. the bottom line is whether it's one, four, fourteen or four thousand, one terrorists coming into our country in illegal fashion to do us harm one too many, and we have to take every step possible to prevent that from happening including protecting our most vulnerable points of entry. and we know that to be the southern border. we have to do what is necessary to protect our border, to protect the people, and that's exactly what president trump has done, and that's exactly what he laid out in his speech last night. steve: all right. sarah sanders joining us from the north lawn. another slow news day, sarah -- [laughter] thank you for joining us live. >> thanks

>> give them a hug. brian: shake their hand. ainsley: feed them breakfast. brian: president of the united states made history yesterday first time since he took over two years ago he addressed at the oval office. we have a crisis at border. we have to change our hours. first and foremost we have to get border security. i backed off a wall. will include a barrier, steel slots, steel wall or improved fence. i have to get this done. what did he accomplish in that ten minutes? did he move the needle at all? >> that will be the question ultimately because both sides are dug in. democrats in the house say nope, we'll not give him a dime. look i ran on this i promised my folks a wall. now it is not build the wall. now it's a steel barrier. in fact last night, he said, okay it is not a wall anymore. it's a steel barrier. i'm doing that to compromise with the democrats. including the $800 million for
humanitarian to process men, women and children at the southern border humanely and safely. these are things that democrats asked for. but so far, we'll know more at 3:00 this afternoon after chuck and nancy meet with him. right now doesn't look like they're able to get off the mark because both sides are dug in. ainsley: goes hand in hand. saying law enforcement appreciation day. the president paid tribute to ronil singh's family and to him who made the ultimate sacrifice. but he was killed by a suspected illegal immigrant. the president remembered him last night in his address in california. he talked about the air force veteran in california was raped, murdered, beaten to death by a hammer by an illegal alien with long criminal history. he talked about a georgia illegal alien charged with killing beheading his neighbor. ms-13 members in maryland, unaccompanied minors. they were charged with stabbing and beating a 16-year-old girl. this is a crisis at our border. look at the images.
brian: president brought up couple things. here are the facts. here is the hypocrisy, eight times chuck schumer voted to build a fence and twice nancy pelosi did. you have got to be kidding. the experts all say it works. five billion is a drop in the bucket considering the size of our budget. he took on nancy pelosi's comment that building a barrier is immoral. listen. >> america proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants who would enrich our society and contribute to our nation, but all americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal migration. our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs. i.c.e. officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records. this barrier is absolutely critical to border security. it's also what our professional at the borders want and need. the border wall would very
quickly pay for itself. the cost of illegal drugs exceeds $500 billion a year. for those who refuse to compromise in the name of border security, i would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband, or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken. to every member of the congress pass a bill that ends this crisis. steve: right. there he was talking about the words that nancy pelosi has used where it is an immorality. chuck schumer called the wall unnecessary. the both of them essentially called the president a liar last night, two minutes after his speech. this is, this is a manufactured crisis, not an actual crisis. but when you look at the tape, we've had producers put together a little chuck schumer from last
night, with some chuck schumer from back in 2009 and you wonder, are those the two same guys? watch this. >> the president of the united states, having failed to get mexico to pay for his ineffective, unnecessary border wall, and unable to convince the congress or the american people to foot the bill, has shut down the government. most of our efforts in congress our border is far more secure today. between 2005 and 2009 a vast amendment of progress has been made on our borders and ports of entry. the progress includes, 9,000 new border patrol field agents or 630 miles of border fence. that created a significant barrier to illegal immigration on our southern land border. brian: obviously with great eye contact still today, senator chuck schumer was for it. now he is against it, because president trump was president. steve: who thought standing them
up in the hall would look good? brian:th trying to change it. everyone's retort to the president's address, usually at state. union alls falls short. but it was horribly choreographed. president looked comfortable especially a guy not used to giving speeches to 100 million people. but senator lindsey graham brought up the fact this week he will offer legislation, he will have them vote, a lot of these people are still in the same jobs on legislation voted for in the past. they will take old bills, put them forward. i put up the daca thing they put up a year ago, give us 25 billion. we build the wall and you get the daca fix. steve: we had sarah huckabee sanders on with us about an hour ago. she looked at hypocrisy about what number of democrats said then as opposed to now. she said it comes down to one word, politics. >> the president is fighting not just for the wall but border security. the fact that democrats want to
live in denial and pretend things are coming across this border that bring harm to people in this country aren't happening it is frankly sad, it is ridiculous, they care more about playing politics than they do about protecting americans. we have shown our willingness to work with them. now they have to show they're willing to do their jobs and do something other than fight this president. ainsley: that is what tom homan was saying too. we had him on at the beginning of the show. he was the i.c.e. director at one point and he said it is so frustrating, we were out there, i was one of the border agents out there. i heard the men we need the wall. the president is trying to do that. he is listening to people sacrificing everything. americans are down there on the ground, leaving families to go and protect all of us, they need the wall and it is really frustrating he said when democrats are not supporting it, when they said they would, support it in 2009. now they're not, all because of political reasons. brian: either tom homan is lying or the democrats are lying.
one buy spent 50 years in law enforcement. been at border countless times than they offer will be, just not bringing politics. you tell the people in tijuana there is not a crisis. look what happened on christmas, new year's eve night. watch what happened on christmas. you've seen this happen over and over again. the thing that changed everything were these caravans. not just one. there is another coming through mexico now. ainsley: and if the president, wrote that letter to congress. he talked a lot about the statistics. one that caught my eye. one in three women coming up to our border through central america and through mexico are assaulted. one in three. steve: all comes down do you think it's a crisis or not? the president does. the democrats do not. the president also said. i will be interested to hear by end of closing today, how many people actually took the president's advice. call your member of congress. how many people pick up the phone and call congress, hey look, i live in your district.
i want you to do this. how many people are going to call, it is a crisis. do something about it. or you know what? i'm with the democrats. i don't think it's a crisis. brian: eminent domain will be issue. some of people with farms and ranches, don't want a wall i get it. 30 plus during the bush administration. there are areas not challenged. it could be built right now. this money is not a lot. you heard chris coons show he is for it, somewhat open to it. joe manchin is somewhat open to it. hopefully moderate voices on the left get together with voices on right and get something done. right now they're tacking at each other, not to each other. democrats, belief, that if this goes past friday, all the pressure is on president trump. ainsley: they will have their third meeting today. nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, the president, or president's administration. we'll keep you posted. steve: we will indeed. sarah huckabee sanders did say the option of declaring a national emergency on our

country, many whom are bringing in drugs, many of whom are criminals as president pointed out last night. one of the smartest things the president said on the campaign trail, many times since you don't have a border you won't have a country. we could secure the bored per but we haven't many years. he is trying to get the necessary tools and necessary funding to secure the border. i think it's a crisis. he is completely right to call it that. the idea it is manufactured is manufactured. it is made up. there is real problem down for a long time. steve: democrats yesterday, last night, said essentially it is manufactured, let's open up the government we will have the conversation which is amazing that will never happen. what about the political damage to the president. if it exceeds the previous longest shutdown, given the fact it is only a partial government shutdown, how much damage for him. >> i'm not sure there will be much if any damage to the president for a couple of reasons. one is, the american people
sadly have gotten used to this. the government has been shut down several times before. it is political theater. they know that the first time it happened in a big way in the mid 90s. gingrich-clinton shutdown, it was shocking, maybe freaked people out a little bit. nowadays it has become in a way passe. as you point out it's a partial shutdown. most people have not noticed a change in the daily lives. they are not sure, what is shut down, what is still working. their lives go on. their jobs go on. all the things they have to do go on. the third point is the administration really has been careful about saying federal workers will all be protected and they will get paid back. people will not ultimately be hurt by this. steve: exit question, one word answer, does the president cave? >> no. steve: there you go. michael anton, thank you very much for joining us live. straight ahead, scott walker just wrapped up eight years as wisconsin governor did a 600 million-dollar surplus.

local government saved billions of dollars. we balanced our budgets with surpluses an as you mentioned put $8.5 billion more into the hands of hard-working people of the state. brian: governor, would that happen if you offered free health care to illegal immigrants and everybody else? >> not at all. i think americans, certainly here in wisconsin we want people to focus on the taxpayers and hard-working people of our states and country as a whole. i appreciate the president for focusing on the very thing he ran on. a lot of folks in washington get worked up. washington is 68 square miles surrounded by reality. you talk to people here in wisconsin and across the country they want political leaders to follow through on promises they made. certainly what we did, why we are pleased to finish with a such a big surplus and such a big turn around, more people working in wisconsin hand ever before. why the economy is humming and the nays. why it is so critically important for the president to hang tough and follow through on promises he made. steve: refreshing that your
state was in the green while so many are in the red. out, i believe it was on monday the new governor of california, gavin newsom said hey, we're a sanctuary state. we'll provide sanctuary for everybody. yesterday in new york city, mayor de blasio said, okay we'll spend up to $100 million to make sure everybody in new york city has health care including those in the country illegally. when you were governor how did you handle illegal immigration? >> from our standpoint we said, for example, my predecessor tried to give drives licenses to people who didn't have legal documentation. that is contradictory. how can you do something like that? how can you provide in-state tuition. you're sending a horrible message to violate the laws of this country, to violate the laws of this state and so we said very clearly, we believe this is a nation of laws. certainly a nation of immigrants. we want people, heck, we got more jobs than people in the state right now. i want people to come here.
i want people to come here legally. i think that is very much what the president and others are pushing in washington. certainly what many of us as governors are pushing in our states along the way. it is an interesting contrast. one of the democrats biggest stars these days is pushing taking $7 out of $10 some people earn giving it to the federal government. that is outrageous. we cut taxes almost $8.5 billion, yet revenues went up. why? because when you put more money back in the hands of job creators and back in the hands of everyday men and women in your state and country those dollars go back in the economy. we've seen in places all around the world socialism has failed, when you get the government involved in the economy like that, you're dooming everyone to a worse off economy. steve: sure. >> we've seen our economy improve. that is the stark contrast. we have to talk about those issues, otherwise particularly young people will fail -- brian: governor, what about you? what is next for you? are you thinking about running
again or joining the administration? >> i told the president best thing i can do for him is be in the private sector. i will help chair the vice president and president's re-election campaign in wisconsin. four years from now, governor or u.s. senate, if ron johnson decides not to run again. i don't think at 51 i'm done yet. would be nice to be in the private sector for a while. speak out with the president's speech last night which i thought was a great contrast between responsibility and two people in particular in response being political and hypocritical. i think the american people can see through that. i want to be a part of making sure that we keep this president and this administration intact. ainsley: scott walker, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, guys. brian: now they filled the packer coaching position, that wipes out another position for governor walker. would be natural fit. ainsley: 29 minutes after the top of the hour. this video is insane. a highway sign falls on top of the car in the middle of the road. how the driver was able to survive.

brian: i think they're done. round of applause for these guys. how good are they? [applause] big salute to law enforcement today. new jersey state police pipes and drums of blue and gold. people here in new york think they're little better than the ones in new jersey. we'll debate that. this is big salute to law enforcement. if you're out on the plaza we're thinking about you. time to turn it over to the panel about their thoughts. wide right, chief richard buss sy. lisa parker and james hunt and joseph impopuse. all those in the background ainsley will be there. chief, chief since 2010, because you're all chiefs, served since 2010. what is the issue in 2018/19 most on your mind? >> trying to develop situations where we can continue to relationships with our community that we've had all along.
i think these relationships are essential to our success. the continuatino of the relationships and changing of our role in society that we're working with everybody, we're being seen in a proper light is absolutely essential to what we do. brian: just not locking people up? building a better community? >> absolutely. that is the least thing on most of our people's mind. brian: chief lisa parker, manchester township. served chief 29 years. what do you like to see changed, what do you like most about your job? >> i like many aspectses about our job. if you think about it, we get paid to help people. my job as chief of police i have to serve too. first i serve men and women that work under my command. it is important to me to make sure they have the proper tools commence rate with their position to serve their community. i serve the community much like chief busby said. that i have contacts with the
community, maintain relationships with the community, that i have transparency and develop relationships and solve community issues. it is part of my job. i love it. brian: sometimes you see the numbers of fatalities of officers serving, getting shot, sometimes not surviving especially today when respect doesn't follow the uniform, it must be particularly agonizing. dr. richard celeste. former somer set police chief and head of the academy. what the is greatest challenge for these people behind you that serve? >> again working with the community. handling the day-to-day functions of the job as the chiefs indicated it is not all about law enforcement. law enforcement is a small portion of what all these officers do on a daily basis. brian: right for, that is a good point. if you walk through penn station, 90% of the time giving directions, posing for pictures, doing some other things. james hunt, retired, new york
dea agent in charge. you retired two months ago, right, james? as you look how things might have changed since you first broke in, what is the biggest difference? >> biggest threat to the country as far as narcotics is the fentanyl opioid epidemic. the cartels are pushing this poison across the southern border at a record rate. so dea and drug law enforcement that is biggest challenge. brian: for longest time, how will we beat crack. people go to inner cities or run-down communities. that is not happening anymore. >> crack really died down but opioid epidemic, heroin, fentanyl, is record pace. it has never been like this ever in the country. amount of users, hardcore addicts and adults in the country is at record levels. brian: the president recognized that. we'll see if programs are in place to stop it. he is optimistic. he is trying to. joseph, you're an nypd sergeant. president of "blue lives
matter." 13 years of experience. we've had you on a lot, talking about the pushback against law enforcement. sadly because of so many fatalities among law enforcement, what are your thoughts today? what should we keep in mind, what do you hope changes in the 2019? >> i hop the politics changes, like ronil singh, officer as lives. brian: ronil singh was gunned down by a illegal immigrant in california. >> people don't realize it cost people their lives. they're doing this for the right reasons. we're not being villainized like on the front page of the paper and news. a lot of politicians think they can go up to tell officers to do their job with little or no experience. they're not coming out to hurt anybody. they want to do god's work very best they can. brian: chief busby, do you find it harder to recruit people? >> young people have a lot of options today. unfortunately vitriol directed against our profession isn't always fair. and young people, especially of
this generation, base their reflections an own fairness and equity. police frankly aren't always treated fairly. brian: right by the one person that always treats, special thanks to commissioner kelly. they have he gave me these cufflinks. they have been my best friends. ainsley, working in the crowd, fine men and women serving in uniform. little cold on plaza. ainsley: we're grateful to them. listening to some of their stories. tell you were shot on the job, rights six years ago? >> yes. ainsley: had to learn to walk again, shot in the leg. tell me what happened? >> i was chasing a burglary suspect. he turned around while i was chasing him, he shot me. i had to learn to walk again and my family and nassau county police department and members played an important role. that is why i'm standing here today. ainsley: god bless you. you're a hero. tell me your name first of all. >> kirsten lorenzo.
ainsley: what area do you patrol? >> long island. ainsley: bazel area. >> not the bazel. ainsley: sorry i'm learning about long island. tell me what you did. you saved someone from burning building? >> yes. ainsley: what happened? >> three people on routine patrol. i noticed the working house fire. the house was fully engulfed in flames. i asked a witness on the sidewalk that was her home. she said no, but two elderly people lived inside of it. ainsley: wow. >> when i saw two vehicles in the garage, i saw the front door was open. so i new people were inside. so i entered the home and i was able to pull out the two elderly people and their aide. ainsley: when you put your head on your pillow at night, do you remember that? do you think this is all worthwhile? >> oh, yes. ainsley: thank you for what you're doing. god bless you. tell me about your story, sir, you were hit by a drunk driver, what happened? >> patrol new year's eve 2018 i
was struck head-on by a drunk driver. i was in the hospital for a month. had about six or seven surgeries. so, thanks again to my department and everybody that supported me. ainsley: did you think about getting out after that? >> i haven't given it a thought yet. i'm currently, trying to get back to work as soon as possible. ainsley: why do you serve? >> i serve the public, growing up i always wanted to be in law enforcement, to help everybody else out. ainsley: thank you, god bless. man, tell me your name. >> [inaudible] ainsley: what area do you serve? >> nassau county, manhattan sixth precinct. ainsley: why did you decide to do it because it's a dangerous job? >> something i always wanted to do, something always made fee me good. i just love it. ainsley: one more. because you saved someone's life. tell me about that story. >> yes, ma'am. a year ago myself and my partners, officer brian and officers pagano, responded to man standing on a ledge

prison. that angel mom, julie golvich join us with a strong message. good morning to you. >> good morning, steve, thank you for having me. steve: in that sound bite the president was speaking directly to you. >> yes. i appreciate he continued to focus on the families that have lost members to illegal alien crime. steve: indeed. this particular man who murdered your son had been deported four times. he had been in prison. he, people knew all about him, but nonetheless he was still on the streets. when you hear chuck schumer and nancy pelosi last night saying that the president has manufactured a crisis, to sell this wall, what's your message to those top democrats? >> it may seem manufactured to them because they're sitting safely behind walls, but for those of us out in regular america we are victims, we are prone to the victimization of illegal aliens and crime.
steve: when nancy pelosi says a wall would be an immorality, what do you say? >> that is absolutely ridiculous. we have walls everywhere in this country. we have walls protecting country. we have walls protecting the homes. morality cannot ascribed to things. that is absolutely ridiculous to hear that. steve: what do you make right now the congress and president are at loggerheads? the president is dug in. he wants the money to build a steel barrier. he described it last night, but democrats seem intent not giving him one darn dime. >> it is absolutely ridiculous and for people to understand the money we're talking about, if you bring home a paycheck every two weeks for $1000, we're asking for one dollar to build the wall. and if you want to do all 25 billion, we want $5. the rest of the year's paycheck would be yours. asking for that amount of money, talking about your money, how the budget looks. it is ridiculous to comes to this. steve: julie, we're coming up on
the fourth anniversary this month about your son's death. tell us a little bit about spencer? >> spencer was my only child. wonderful person. very intelligent, fund-loving. he had friends of all ages, all looks, all persuasions. he, he had great friendships and people liked him a lot. he had over 1000 people come to his funeral. he was a small business owner. he had 10 employees at spencer's guitar shop. he started that when he was 22 years old. just an overall great person. and, this country, this world has lost a lot when my son was murdered four years ago on january 31st. steve: indeed. >> to somebody who was a criminal, a criminal allowed to walk around this country. steve: julie, i know you fought for him when he was alive. he would not be surprised you still continue the fight. thank you very much. >> thank you. and thank you. i just want to call out officer,
