tv   The Ingraham Angle  FOX News  February 13, 2019 7:00pm-8:00pm PST

7:00 pm
timelines about when the murders happen her off by as much as a decade. >> sean: that's evil. we don't have time for mail. we will not be the destroy-trump media ever. let not your heart be troubled. laura ingraham. are you in new york? >> laura: no, i'm here. i was in texas. i love texas. i love it. >> sean: i don't want to play anymore. i'm sick of it. >> laura: rush told us we should move to florida. >> sean: i said to rick perry, i want to go to texas. i want to get a baby ranch. he said 4,000 acres? how about 100? i want to cows. >> laura: there are a lot of hannity fans down there. hannity, a lot of fans of yours down there barely met a lot of great people. >> sean: that crowd outside was massive. how they was not crowd? >> laura: we put the photos on twitter. i'm not -- you can see the
7:01 pm
picture. >> sean: is massive. >> laura: took my breath away. it takes a lot. it was unbelievable. >> sean: let's be honest. they heard that you were there. >> laura: great show tonight as always. i am laura ingraham. this is "the ingraham angle." back in washington tonight. we have a lot to get to. at any moment we are expecting the text of the actual border compromise, the bill that's going to drop any moment. we are awaiting word on whether the president will actually sign it. you're going to want to stay with us right through this hour. we're going to be analyzing it line by line for you. you've got to know what's in this thing. plus, the failure of the high-speed rail product in california. one of my favorite issues ever of perko. i've been tracking this for years. the latest in a long line of liberal pie-in-the-sky disasters. the angle will describe what politicians have lied to you along the way and what lessons
7:02 pm
you can take from this. and also tonight, the revenge of the "assman." why am i having to say this? we told you about this last week. a lot of you are interested in this. i have a question. are you celebrating galentines day? this is so disturbing. raymond arroyo is with us, a wild "seen and unseen." tonight. i want you to understand what is at stake in what's going on here tonight. no matter what anyone tells you, the so-called border deal is a complete abdication of responsibility by congress. it has nothing, zero, nada, nothing at the southern border. there's been a 290% increase in the number of so-called family units illegally crossing into america. just in the first four months of this fiscal year. as "the washington post"
7:03 pm
reported, "after surrendering to authorities, the families are driven to border patrol stations where they typically stated fear of deportation and a desire to seek asylum. in most cases, the families are released after a few days and assigned a court date. last month an unprecedented 59% of all border apprehensions were comprised of migrants traveling in family groups. well, what the post didn't tell you is that 90% of these migrants are not really eligible for asylum. but instead have been coached by immigration activists or lawyers or other family numbers or friends already in the united states, and their claims will ultimately be rejected by immigration judges. but it doesn't matter because most never show up for their hearings, and many during that interim period have children here. so then they're never going to be sent back.
7:04 pm
democrat lawmakers will invariably say that border crossings are down. they are not up. well, guess what. don't fall into that trap. that's irrelevant. it's a red herring. when 1800 adults and children cross illegally into the u.s. on monday alone, including two groups of more than 300 just in el paso, we have a full-blown border crisis. smugglers get rich. cartels infiltrate the caravans. hardworking americans get stuck with the tab. education costs, health care costs, housing, and court-appointed interpreters just to lay out a few budget items. of course, this could all stop tomorrow if congress did what it should do tonight. all asylum application should be filed outside of america. this itself removes the incentive to both storm border checkpoints and to cross illegally.
7:05 pm
secondly, the law must be changed to allow for immediate border turn backs. in other words, you come here from honduras or guatemala and you are sent immediately back, which is what we do now with mexicans across illegally. third, one illegal border crossing and you're out. you are back home, and that means back to zero tolerance. meaning once we caught you, you are deported, and you may not apply to return legally to the united states. that would have a powerful deterrent effect. people want to come. maybe they will actually applied to come legally. finally, prosecute more adults for child endangerment. american parents, they are thrown in jail for letting their kids walk home from school alone, let alone putting them in situations where they don't have proper food or water. so why do illegal aliens get special treatment? dragging kids through very dangerous territory, the desert, food, water, limited, cartels,
7:06 pm
coyotes, people who prey on them. that's irresponsible. those are just a few of my ideas. what are yours? congress? what are you going to do? here now, mark morgan, obama's former border patrol chief, louise, former communications director for the dnc and dan bongino, fox news contributor. mark, you've been at the helm of an important agency and all this. what did i leave out in my prescription? >> my first reaction is, you can drop them like -- from a border security perspective, this proposal is an absolute failure. they didn't listen to the experts on the tools and resources, they have absolutely rejected it. one thing i want to add that's important in the american people nine to understand what they are doing with i.c.e. beds. think about this, this proposal reduces the i.c.e. beds, and i'm
7:07 pm
not a mathematician but reduces the i.c.e. beds, as you pointed out, illegal immigration is skyrocketing. you don't have to be mathematician. what does that mean? catch and release 2.0. they're going to have to release them. >> laura: they are codifying catch and release, dan bongino dan bongino. i know there are a lot of republicans out there try to put a good faith on all this because they love the president and they wanted to be successful. but i say tonight, they are failing this nation and they are failing to enact the trump agenda. then they put him up against a wall saying you're going to shut down the government. this was planned to go this way all along, in my view. dan. >> laura, the president has been candid. he set himself yesterday in the cabinet room business was a bad deal but what is he going to do? here's the problem, laura. we are dealing with a political party and the democrats that's given up on america completely. they have committed to the destruction of our borders, our economy, with his green new farce and all this other stuff out there. we are having ridiculous arguments like "the walls were?
7:08 pm
"these aren't sane arguments. we are not dealing with an rational party anymore so we have one party committed to the destruction of the country as we know it, and another party not all republicans but a good swath of them, let's be candid, who have abandoned the president and by complete cowards. they afraid of the media. what do you want the president to do? the guys in a corner. he is sitting there fighting the swap sometimes, almost entirely by himself. it's embarrassing. >> laura: luis, i want to go to you. people say americans against the wall. okay, i was in el paso, texas, . this was underreported. you could see it when our overhead shots of the crowd. it was at least 50% hispanic. there were people from central america, mostly mexicans but other parts. people are third and fourth generation american hispanic-american. i was at trump's rally. i was covering it and broadcasting. it dwarfed beto's. he had a good turnout but it wasn't anywhere near trump.
7:09 pm
i was there, not here in washington. but this is what the new polling is saying. fox news poll just out today for support for the border wall up 3% from last month. so now it's up at 46%, september it was 39%. but what people are hearing, i think, as well, trump wants to build a wall from sea to shining sea. he's never said that. he wants to build a wall where wall makes sense. why, when we see it all the fraud and abuse in washington, d.c., why wouldn't people want to come to our country legally say good, we want to make you feel more secure about your country. if a wall makes you feel more secure, fine with us because we are going to come legally. >> i'm glad you said that. there isn't a good legal system. all the president has done so far as action made it harder for people who do want to seek asylum to actually find that, and is legitimate violence and incredibly big violence at a very difficult environment for people who really are fleeing their homes to come to the border. i agree with you, what you said
7:10 pm
earlier. let's create point for them to be able to request asylum along the way and let's assign more judges to be able to adjudicate those cases more quickly. speedway can agree on that. >> we can do that. promise a wall for 2,000 miles and here's the reality -- >> i have a civil question. are we a country? we are a country, right? what does a country have? a thing called sovereignty. can we determine who comes in and out? he won't answer that question. you will not answer that question. god-given rights. >> they are not coming here to sit by the pool. they are coming here to work. >> laura: you can't say when everyone is coming here to do. >> george w. bush himself. we do thank you. that was a big success. dan. >> they are being given jobs by industry that are not getting
7:11 pm
fined under the trump administration. speedier i'm happy to find all those industries. dan, kevin mccarthy tried to sum up the situation building on the political situation that this president finds himself in. let's watch. >> the president is getting a victory there baby are trying to illuminate the beds. may the same cap we have before. what really is is not providing the 5 billion. one-tenth of 1% of the whole budget. this bill is a down payment. the president's bill other avenues that he can use to get the rest of the money, and finish it. >> laura: dan, hold on one second. mark, i want you and then i want dan. >> he shouldn't have to result to level two and three. congress should do -- 230 miles. it's not sea to shining sea. it's a false narrative and you know it. 230 miles is all they are asking from the experts. the beds, right now i.c.e. has 49,000 people. the experts are saying we need 52,000 and congress as we will give you 42. it's a colossal failure.
7:12 pm
>> laura: dan, this last-minute trickery that they always engage in is when you really have to look closely at what that's -- that's why we are waiting for this to drop. there is always golden nuggets tucked in the language of the bill. they tried to do that with the amnesty in 2013. that flamed out. we've got a look at a very carefully. i don't like to cram through, rushed through to the last minute. got to sign it or you're going to shut down the government. it's an irresponsible abdication of duty. everyone on capitol hill who was supporting this thing has got us in a situation should be ashamed of themselves. i'm sorry. i'm so angry about what they did here. >> no, you should be, laura. my suspicions are that the poison pill will be limitation construction of the barrier and it will be what the democrats want which is no barrier at all. it will be like a 3d hologram barrier. the republicans need to sign a
7:13 pm
quickie cr. when this bill is out there to give them enough time to look at this thing because laura, you nailed it. they will apsley be some poison pill in one quick thing, mark is actually right. luis, with all due respect, you came in with talking points and that's nonsense. nobody has advocated in this bill for a sea to shining sea -- you are just making that up. you literally are making it up. mark is right. 230. no, it is a 200 -- that's not what's happening now. [all speaking] >> laura: so you want them to do the wall? i'm confused. the democrats promised -- >> we need a conference instead of measures. this is exactly what this compromises. it's democracy. democrats and republicans working together neither side is when you get all at once. it's going to work towards providing some fencing but also providing other measures that are important. if you do -- >> laura: why should we -- why should the american worker have to work two jobs so they can
7:14 pm
send their kids to public schools that are teeming with kids. classrooms are already overcrowded, and now in fairfax county, virginia, prince william county virginia, they are overcrowded classrooms and teachers are trying to do te dealing with 17 languages in fairfax county spoken by children coming in. i love languages. they are wonderful. but that's a huge burden on the regular working person. who is busting your every day to put food on the table. >> doing nothing about -- let's give them a legitimate way to come with there jobs available and let's give them away to apply for a sign without creating these fake crises. >> another talking point. >> laura: 1800 people coming to the border, crossing the border illegally with kids just on monday is not a crisis question marks to about is the fact that -- you want a wall built, it's going to take years
7:15 pm
to build it. it's not going to be built tomorrow. what we could be doing is working with those countries to make sure -- >> laura: we are going to talk about -- i think -- we reached some agreement. i think we actually reached some agreement on one point and that is where people should apply for asylum. the president i hope is listening to this. i think you for joining us. luis, mark, dan. fantastic. >> you have thousands and thousands of people coming from guatemala, from honduras and el salvador. and they march up through mexico. by the way, if we didn't have walls in those areas, in some cases that we put up in many cases where we reinforced, in many cases where our great military helped us with barbed wire, you would have people pouring in. they don't pour in. >> laura: that was the president of the other night spelling out the dangers that are involved inside these caravans.
7:16 pm
that make their way from central america through mexico to our southern border. tonight in a "the ingraham angle" exclusive, we have word that yet another caravan is forming. one that our next guest says could be the biggest yet. running is now exquisitely, guatemalan secretary of intelligence mario sort us. [speaking spanish] good to have you on. what do we need to know? you have been warning about this for years actually. a lot of people think about central america, i've been there a lot, as you know. spent a lot of time in el salvador and guatemala. why can't we get more help from our friends in guatemala or el salvador or honduras? why allowing people from honduras, you are letting them through and they are making their way to mexico, why? >> thank you for having me, laura. i think it's not completely correct to say that we are just
7:17 pm
allowing them through. guatemala signed with different countries of central america, a treaty that allows central american citizens to flow freely through central american territory. however, we have been under the condition that -- >> laura: there is the guatemala-mexico border. >> they report at the border. this is a different situation. what happened, a violent overpowering of our police forces and of our border. unfortunately, the organizers of this caravan put little kids, babies, women and the elderly at the front and started pushing them against the police forces. we need to take care of their human rights, of their dignity, of their lives. obviously we have had to -- the lives of those people, those innocents, or allowing them into our territory. we did and effort and president more or less ordered security forces to set up different checkpoints. we ended up returning more than
7:18 pm
6,500 hundreds back to honduras that were illegally in guatemala in these caravans. >> laura: you arrested hundreds isa suspects. they were not part of that caravan. it was erroneously reported that they were arrested in guatemala? >> these are special-interest aliens. >> laura: it's reported as isis. these are people from countries -- >> suspicious aliens, some with possible links. terrorist organizations. >> laura: that's a lot of people in guatemala that you sent. is there a concern at all that through the caravan other people can slip in? we know ms-13 has slipped into the caravan, and many cartel forces have made their way into caravans in mexico because that's where the reports are. >> those are parts of the threats and risks that come with the caravans.
7:19 pm
think about ms-13, they have been weaponize. these innocents have been weaponized as political tools of the socialist movement throughout latin america. >> laura: political activists are pushing these caravans? >> right. >> laura: this group, pueblo sin fronteras in the united states, they have one lead organizer, he's an individual who's a problem and he's been, i believe he was arrested down there in mexico and they are part of the coaching squad to coach everybody to say they have a credible fear. why is central america being depopulated? >> it's not so much depopulated. like i said, these leftist activists with the purpose of undermining conservative movements in the united states and in our countries, are weaponizing these people in need, offering them a false
7:20 pm
opportunity in the united states. they are falling for it. >> laura: what about this other caravan? what can you tell us? >> it's missing. it's coming through the colombian jungle into panama. >> laura: colombian jungle? it's coming from south america? >> south america to -- >> laura: any venezuelans hooking in with this caravan? >> some. mostly cubans and africans. >> laura: 30,000 strong? >> that's their purpose. how many people they want to put together. again, it's another caravan forming with the same intent, being coached by people, being weaponize, like i said, by the leftist movements. >> laura: this is an american commentator. this is what he says about our wall and whether there's any crisis. let's watch. >> history will really frown on the republicans. you gave one instance. how about sending troops down
7:21 pm
when there's no caravan coming? sending american troops down literally like tinker toy soldiers, and we can go on and on and on, and a standby into me, you know, you see what you what you get with trump. >> laura: okay, so he was talking with the caravan, not the wall. no caravan. there are no caravans? >> probably they are watching the wrong channel. you need to watch fox news more. >> laura: [laughs] there's no caravans. no crisis. do you see it as a crisis in guatemala with people coming through? >> it definitely was a crisis for us. we had to deploy over 3,000 strong police officers, military, emts, first responders throughout the borders trying to stop the illegal flow of migrants. we had to check on them and make sure -- >> laura: we are going to keep checking with you, but we've got to work together, our countries, to get this to stop. thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> the president would love to
7:22 pm
meet president trump to find solutions. >> laura: less than a week after the greener deal was rolled out to disastrous effect, california scrapped another obsession, there absurd high-speed rail project. i'm going to tell you all about it in "the angle" next. i'm worried about my parents' retirement. don't worry. voya helps them to and through retirement... dealing with today's expenses... while helping plan, invest and protect for the future. so they'll be okay? i think they'll be fine. voya. helping you to and through retirement.
7:23 pm
i'm a fighter. always have been. when i found out i had age-related macular degeneration, amd, i wanted to fight back. my doctor and i came up with a plan. it includes preservision. only preservision areds 2 has the exact nutrient formula recommended by the national eye institute to help reduce the risk of progression of moderate to advanced amd. that's why i fight. because it's my vision. preservision. also, in a great-tasting chewable.

7:27 pm
overburdened aviation system. and everybody stands to benefit. >> we are making to achieve the goal through the development of high-speed rail projects that will extend eventually all across this nation. >> laura: and in 2011, obama transportation secretary ray lahood appeared with an array of democrat darlings to sell the high-speed snake oil. >> 35 states have accepted high-speed intercity rail money. >> if there's more money made available, they are ready to get in. when you look at the budget with them, we hope we can turn into a transportation bill $550 billion over six years. i don't know of another time in the history of transportation any president has been so bold to put forth such a plan in such a big vision. >> laura: yeah, he had blurry vision. okay? obama's 2009 stimulus bill dangled billions to states to get them to invest in this high-speed rail. well, now a lot of states
7:28 pm
smartly turned down the seed money, knowing full well that the final cost could be a lot more. it could be double or triple the original projections. they didn't want to be left holding the bag. but two of the most reliably democrat states in america, hawaii and california, gladly took the money. california received grants of $3.5 billion to connect san francisco and los angeles, meaning 100-plus miles of high-speed rail had to go through the central valley's beautiful farmland. as with so many liberal pipedreams, a myriad of problems dogged the project from the start. the original cost projection for the san francisco to l.a. track was $45 billion. but soon the estimate jumped to $77 billion. now, two years ago, the "los angeles times" diagnosed the situation accurately, saying "the california system is being billed by an independent
7:29 pm
authority that has never built anything. and depends on a large network of consultants and contractors for advice." even after five years of effort to buy property, the rail authority selects 25% of the parcel for a 29-mile stretch from majuro to fresno and just over half the parcel needee central valley. and another fun fact. he keeps getting better. to achieve their nirvana of high-speed rail, democrats were even willing to throw their other religion under the bus: environmentalism. huge opposition to the project developed from greeny acts and farmers. that led to mungo delays. my friends, this was a joke from the start. the only people who benefited were the countries that bought our debt to fund it and the consultants who lined their pockets, selling it as a panacea
7:30 pm
for congested roads. now, this is no different though from so many other unnecessary d liberal projects that require billions to fund and just end up driving us further into debt. i think of vermont's idea for this and will bear dream in 2011 before it ended basically beforn governor peter shulman realized it had become too costly to implement and then he just call the whole thing off. who can forget obama solar energy grants? solyndra and automotive to name a few. there were five defaulted loans that american tax payers were on the hook for as a result of that boondoggle. none of these examples of waste, fraud, and abuse ever mattered to the phonetics on the left. their goal of their green new dale, oh, my god. what is that tell us? it tells us they are actually doubling down on all the failures of the past.
7:31 pm
in fact, yesterday, california governor gavin newsom lowered expectations for the project. kind of yanked it from hundreds feet. he kept insisting that he won't return the $3.5 billion that his date wasted on this nightmare. >> abandoning the high-speed rail entirely means we will have wasted billions and billions of dollars was nothing but broken promises, partially developed commitments, and lawsuits to show for it. with all due respect, i have no interest in sending back $3.5 billion of federal funding that was allocated to this project to president donald trump. >> laura: well, shazam. isn't it a neato trick? newsom is basically shutting down huge parts of the high-speed rail project, but he's keeping all the money. moments ago, we had a tweet-off. the president telling newsom and california that he wants the money back for the american
7:32 pm
taxpayers. and newsom responded in the last few minutes that this is california's money, "we are not giving it back." typical liberals. they say it's their money, others, money is there money. it's the taxpayers money, gavin. think of all the congressional democrats who tonight are opposed to spending $5 billion on a wall that will help the entire country. something that can actually be built under budget and will actually be effective. radical congressmen juan vargas who by the way represents areas in the extreme southern portions actually even opposing the measly $1.375 billion mortar deal saying we shouldn't give him a penny for his wall. it was a political stunt. it's a total waste of money. waste of money coming from california. what a travesty.
7:33 pm
it's the new and improved, more socialist democrats with their hands on the reins of power in 2020. you can bet your bottom dollar that we are all going to be hurtling down the tracks to fiscal ruin and feeling a bit like this. >> what are you doing to my mam mama? >> laura: it will be just like that, and that's "the ankle." coming up, last week we brought you the urgent case of a man with an unfortunate last name who was denied a license plate bearing that name. well, he must've been watching because we have an important update for you. raymond arroyo is here with that and a lot more in "seen and unseen" x

>> laura: a brand-new independent investigation revealing tonight that nick sandmann and the rest of the covington catholic students did nothing wrong at the march for life. the maga hat wearing student made headlines when the media left is freaked out jumped all over them after this video showing sandmann smiling with the native american left-wing activist nathan phillips got in his face, banging the drum. if the media had bothered to do any homework, be responsible in any way, they would've realized that phillips was full of it. behind the scenes video we played on "the ingraham angle" " >> do you think sir, you
7:49 pm
should've walked away. >> that's what i was trying to do. we were surrounded. we couldn't go right. we couldn't go left, back. >> though mr. phillips later claimed he was trying to get to the lincoln monument, he bypassed the most direct nonassertive pathway went straight to where the covington boys were standing. >> laura: after initially adding to the pile on, the covington bishop and the dioceses soon realized that they too had unfairly tarred these kids. that was unbelievable. to make amends, they hired an independent team to reach their conclusions. get a load of the wasted resources that came as a result of jumping to conclusions. for coinvestigators who spent a whopping 240 man hours on this case. they watched 50 hours of videos, interviewed 43 students, send multiple requests to interview nathan phillips, which went ignored, and sat for six hours outside of phillips' home. after all that, the report concluded "we found no evidence of offensive or racist statements by student to mr. phillips or members of his
7:50 pm
group." all this as a result of a leftist mob who wanted so badly to ruin the life of this white kid because it fit their preferred narrative. i would hope that there are some lessons to be learned here. stop jumping to conclusions. take a breath before you tarry everybody with the worst pejorative. unfortunately we know all too well, though, that the mob wonders move on on to the next target. also tonight, the chung family fighting back against a new york attorney general, leticia james, who they claim is on a mission to destroy them. >> i believe that this president is incompetent. i believe that this president is ill-equipped to serve in the highest office of this land, and i believe that he is an embarrassment to all that we stand for. we will join with law enforcement and other attorneys general across this nation in removing this president from office.
7:51 pm
>> laura: [laughs] attorneys for the trump foundation, the president has three oldest children wrote in the filing today "new york attorney general teacher james ran on an anti-trump campaign where she expressed grave antipathy and animus towards mr. trump, refer to the president as an illegitimate president has vowed to use every area of the law to investigate trump and his business transactions and that of his family." here now, former u.s. attorney joseph digenova. all right, joe. do the trump's have a point? >> they do indeed. leticia james, attorney general of new york, both in her campaigning and her rhetoric since being elected by the people of new york state, god help them, has, with her inflammatory, unprofessional, and unethical language and conduct, has created for herself unethical bind. everything that she does now will be against the public interest because she has created
7:52 pm
the belief in the public mind that she will abuse her power in order to accomplish your goal. that is a disgraceful message for a public official with law enforcement power to ascend to the people of the state of new york, and i hope the people who elected her paying attention to the embarrassment that she is bringing to this office. this is like comey squared. if you can put in your mind a dirty cop coupled with a woman who, i think her language so awful, for a law enforcement official, attorney general of the state, i think that trump family has great, great motions against her activities and the lawsuit if she files any. >> laura: she kind of reminded me a little bit in the early stages, the freddie gray death in baltimore. wasn't the city attorney there? went ballistic early on. backed off a little bit. >> very, very inflammatory comments. >> laura: poisoned the well.
7:53 pm
>> police, community. that's exactly what leticia james is doing. it's an embarrassment. members of the bar should be filing complaints. >> laura: she's pushing back on any criticism. two days ago saying... >> as the attorney general, i found the facts and evidence. my first amendment rights as an attorney general. we need to make sure we investigate all cases whether it involves the trumped foundation or any other case. >> laura: >> this is childish. when you're watching is an adolescent who happens to be the attorney general of the state of new york. some of the most embarrassing public statements you could ever have mouthed from someone with a law degree. she doesn't lose her first amendment rights. wow, there's a showstopper. we're going to follow all the facts in every case. that's not what she was saying before. she's an embarrassment of the state of new york.
7:54 pm
>> laura: what about manafort? the obama appointee, district court judge, couldn't have picked a tougher judge in his case to oversee? this was a revocation of a plea agreement basically saying that he lied to special prosecutor and others. >> it's a very, very difficult situation for mr. manafort. we don't know whether the judge is right or not. the problem in a situation like this is she has all the power. you can do whatever she wants. that's what the courts of appeals are for. she's abusing her power. we will find out. if she's right, god help paul manafort. but she could be wrong. no federal judges are perfect. believe me, after watching what the fisa court didn't do and how they were snookered, i would be very careful about paying homage to federal judges these days. >> laura: anyone doing business overseas in these murky waters, it's always, you're always skating a little close to the line. >> the justice department investigated this for two years and decided not to prosecute anything. and then mueller picked it up
