it. >> from the border security perspective this proposal is an absolute failure. they not only didn't listen to experts on the tools and resources they needed but have rejected that. one thing that is important to understand, ice beds. this proposal reduces the ice beds. i'm not a mathematician, reduces the ice beds, legal immigration is skyrocketing. you don't have to be a mathematician. catch and release 2.0. they have to release them. jillian: democrats were slammed for trying to reduce the number of ice beds as a means to abolish the agency. rob: first responders for a fallen nypd detective, his body is home to long island. the 19 year veteran brian simonson will be laid to rest wednesday. simonson was shot and killed by

singapore shutdown american energy, describing it as a high school term paper that got a low mark. >> nobody likes it when the press is after you. imagine what the president said. oregon voting to stop cooperating with the fbi joint terrorism task force. supporters say the task force targets left-wing activists and is an effective. this the's police chief objected think it would hinder investigations. >> we may be walled off from day-to-day information, protecting the community. >> reporter: after the 9/11 terror attacks, signed back up after 2015. jillian: milania trump will warmhearted children's hospital, the first lady will participate

unveiled to lawmakers and their scrambling to read it before later today. rob: $1.4 billion, for 65 miles of border barriers. is that enough for republicans to back this and avoid the shutdown at midnight? jody heiss joins us to explain. this bill, i don't think anyone will have time to read it. >> that is exactly correct. it came out when we were all in bed asleep, we are waking up in the morning getting going finding out we have 1200 pages worth of bills in front of us which we have not seen and democrats made a promise this type of thing would not happen, 72 hours before being called on to vote on a bill but this bill was done behind closed doors
meaning negotiators don't know what is in it and we are expected to vote on it today. i cannot go there. heather: let's look at the main points, 55 miles for fencing, and border security programs as we discussed at reduction in ice detention beds and $400 million in humanitarian aid or detained migrants. the point, what do you see as problematic, what do you like in it? >> this is a drop in the bucket, what we are facing on the border. we have a president of the united states trying to do everything in his power to secure the borders and secure the same deal to the american people, and failing under the leadership of nancy pelosi and the democrats, they are unwilling to negotiate in good faith and this does not come close to addressing the real
problem. rob: some in the gop say this is a down payment on the wall and they will get more in september when it is up for negotiation. i want to talk about the ice detention beds because both sides were claiming victory on that, democrats pushed for a reduction but republicans say they will have as many reduction beds and detain as many as they have in the past. >> you can push back and forth like a ping-pong ball who is getting the victory on this. what is the need on the border for agents dealing with these individuals day in and day out? they need the ability to apprehend these individuals and hold them in custody as long as needed. we are dealing with criminals and folks that need to be detained. none of them should be released into the country and that is the fear i want to make sure does not take place.
jillian: knowing what the president wants, if this were to happen would he sign it? >> i don't know. we will wait and see. the president is committed to doing what he can to secure the borders. this is not come anywhere close enough to doing that. congress yet again as i mentioned a while ago has failed miserably. if the president, seems to me he's left with no other choice but to take action on his own and if he chooses to do that i would support him. heather: numbers we got that are interesting. when you take wall out of the equation and show what people want at the border, 66% of people are all for some kind of barrier at the border. that is a pretty solid number. if you are a republican or the president does this show he shined a light on the issue by showing border patrol agents say they need a barrier, he pushed public opinion.
>> no question about that. in my district it is 83% the we need a barrier of some sort. we all know barriers work and that is the issue, isn't it? we want a safe and secure border. it is ultimately although there is more involved than a wall it is also true that you cannot ultimately have a secure border if you don't have some sort of barrier keeping bad people out. the american people understand that and once it. heather: you look at the numbers, 56% oppose the president bypassing congress and declaring a national emergency to build the wall, some people wonder if he even finds this would he still declare a national emergency? >> ultimately the question is not the president bypassing congress with congress bypassing the president, congress bypassing constitutional responsibility to keep our borders safe. that is the issue.
what the american people want is not compromised. they want security. the president is on the right side of this issue. congress and the leadership of the democrats on the wrong side of this issue and it is time to secure the border. how difficult is there for democrats to understand? rob: maybe move that money around, see what he does. heather: you have a couple hours, thank you for joining us. >> have a great day. rob: 1100 pages to read, 20 minutes after the hour, donald trump demanding california's read -- return billions of federal dollars from a disaster of a high-speed rail project that failed at this point but the governor is not budging. >> with all due respect i have no interest in sending back 31/$2 billion of federal funding allocated to this project to donald trump.
internet that puts you in charge. that protects what's important. it handles everything, and reaches everywhere. this is beyond wifi, this is xfi. simple. easy. awesome. xfinity, the future of awesome. heather: gavin newsom derailing plans for a high-speed train from san francisco to la. the president calls this expensive project a green disaster. jillian: here is more on the move to abandon the project. >> our goal is to give 80% of americans access to high-speed rail. >> reporter: president obama gave california $2.5 billion in federal tax money to build a bullet train.
the understanding it would travel from la to san francisco in 2 hours and 40 minutes. that is not going to happen. will the trump administration go after california failed to perform? too early to tell but government gavin newsom helps to keep the project on life support so he won't have to repay those billions despite donald trump. >> with all due respect i have no interest in sending back $3.5 billion in federal funding that was allocated to this project to donald trump. >> reporter: the money already spent or appropriated. not only to san francisco but it stretch of central valley not 500 miles but 100 miles, skeptics told governor jerry brown the train cannot be built. he promised, democrats and unions supported it, cost overruns and lawsuits made the project unrealistic and unsustainable. >> the current project as
planned would cost too much and take too long. there has been too little oversight and not enough transparency. >> reporter: those hoping for faster travel between the cities, the private sector may be the answer. elon musk is testing hyperlinked transport station, underground pods and the promise of a trip under 45 minutes. in los angeles, fox news. rob: the question is will the federal government get that money back? jillian: the state needs to pay it back to help fund a border wall. >> reporter: it got too expensive as travel times are too slow, ticket prices were double what you would pay for southwest airlines. it became very apparent they promised something of a couldn't deliver. they said they would have this project with all this private money and investment, it wouldn't cause taxes to go up. they haven't gotten a penny in private investment. the federal government put $3
billion into it and now they are in breach of agreement with the federal government. i think the federal government should ask that money back and use it to build the wall. jillian: gavin newsom says claims the project has been canceled are fake news. rob: he is so indignant. it is not trump's money the way he makes it sound, it is our money, $3 billion, he doesn't want to give it back. jillian: 31/$2 million is allocated that and it is not going to happen. rob: nice to be a politician. double trouble for delta airlines, violent turbulence rocking one flight in midair and flames and smoke filling another. >> you can see the people who aren't belted in hitting the ceiling. rob: how the airline is responding. jillian: can a multibillion-dollar drug fortune pay for the border wall? a former texas prosecutor joins us to break down how he thinks it can be done. ♪

jillian: welcome back. look atop headlines. the text of the border security bill has been released. it includes $1.3 billion in wall fund again $1 billion for technology upgrades. a vote is expected on capitol hill but the president says he will need to review it for the, quote, landmines before signing up. rob: paul manafort's the deal is void. foreman trump campaign manager made false statements to the fbi. he will be up for a harsher sentence next month is manafort's attorneys say he did not lie. jillian: a hospital advantage most significant gun-control billing years.
it would require background checks for transfers in the us, the house judiciary committee debated the bill for 9 hours before voting on it. it is expected to be voted on by the full house in the next few weeks. rob: fbi asking for help identifying the woman in these chilling sketches. samuel little through the sketches in his jail cell, he says he killed all of these women. little is serving a life sentence after being convicted of 3 murders. he says he has killed 90 women across the united states over the past four decades. of confirmed little would be one of the deadliest killers in us history. jillian: the illegal immigrants accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, stuffing her body in a suitcase and dumping it. they veer da silva is in portugal, he admits to dumping
valerie rice's body in connecticut but insists she died from a head injury. of convicted in her killing he could face the death penalty. rob: students at the center of this final confrontation in washington dc have been cleared of wrongdoing. jillian: an independent investigation found no racist or offensive statements by the covington catholic students. they were widely criticized after coming face-to-face with native american activists at the march for life rally. the agency concluding, quote, the statements we obtained from students and chaperones are remarkably consistent and the statements are consistent with the videos reviewed and there was a lot of video out there. rob: senator ted cruz doubling down on his calls to have el chapo pay for the border wall. >> the department of justice estimates of the global worth of el chapo's criminal network worldwide were roughly $14 billion. that means we could do this without spending a penny of
taxpayer money. those billions that el chapo has were made traveling -- trafficking across the border. it is right because of gotten gains go to fixing the problem and stopping the next traffic. jillian: is this a legal possibility and how would it work? we are asking texas county attorney, thank you for joining us, in that interview last night ted cruz went on to say i don't know if this will happen but what do you think? is it possible? >> it is possible. it happens all the time. donald trump has called it an interesting idea describing the el chapo act, $14 billion in proceeds seized from his drug cartel and use it to pay for border security. criminal as that forfeiture is used by the department of justice all the time. they put them in a fund with wide latitude to use that
although not on this scale but it is commonly done and perfectly lawful. rob: it is possible. i have another question. i would assume mexico probably wants this money as well. he was a terror in that country who killed so many people. what -- do they have a say in this? >> they wouldn't. the action is done by the department of justice connected to criminal prosecution and the conviction of the drug kingpin. this elegant out-of-the-box proposal by ted cruz is not just el chapo but future convictions from other drug cartel members to fund border security and build a wall. jillian: how long would this take? is this something we would see in the near future? >> the elegance of the bill, it is only a 3 page bill, simple proposal that would designate these funds to be used for this purpose.
the power exists with the department of justice once they see these funds to put them to law enforcement type purposes. the length of time is how complicated it is to unpack the criminal empire of el chapo and find his assets and to seize them but once they are seized and captured and put in the asset forfeiture fund they can be directed by the department of justice and put to a just use. these funds have come from decades of terror on the american public from the drug empire. rob: fascinating you say mexico wouldn't have a say in this country those assets are in that country but we shall see. thank you for your time, appreciate it. jillian: 36 after the hour, critics holly out donald trump for a golf simulator at the white house. rob: what they didn't tell you

kill off all the cows, fire had a better chance of success. another twitter user says spot on. i ask of the cows are willing to work. the -- don't know how popular it is. a room size golf simulator. >> donald trump installed a new off simulator in the white house, sounds pretty bad considering it is on the heels of a report about all the executive time he is taking but in the body of that report you learn he replaced the one put in place by president obama and paid for it, $50,000 of his own money, not as bad as one may think that what is funny how donald trump, president obama, they golfed a lot and even on the golf course they golf at the white house, dream come true.
