>> reporter: immigration and customs enforcement is latest begin a nationwide sweep of illegal immigrants who face court orders to leave the country and some democrats are suggesting work arounds to fort ice. >> it is not the same as a search warrant. if that is the only thing, agents do not have a legal right to enter a home. if ice agents don't have a warrant signed by a judge a person may refuse to open the door and let them in. >> in a hearing scheduled about children in detention centers. jillian: we will talk about that coming up. have a good weekend. democrats declaring victory over the president abandoning the

>> we are not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship status of the united states population. we are pursuing a new option to ensure complete and timely count, i will ensure an executive order to put this very plan into effect immediately. heather: the president outlining his to get an accurate count of us citizens without using the 2020 census. is this a win for the president? former deputy assistant for policy and economic development under the trump administration doctor gavin clarkson joins me with more. thank you for joining us this morning. >> glad to be back on. the 20 what is the president talking about? these other avenues, this new option, other methods to determine citizenship and will it work? >> the objective is to try to find out who is a citizen and
who is not. what the president is doing is bringing the power of the federal government in terms of different databases they have to figure out the people counting the senses, who is a citizen, who is here legally, who is here illegally so the objective is to get a complete and accurate census, to use that for things like deploying ice resources. the goal is to have the most accurate picture of the population which is what the constitution requires under the enumeration law. heather: how do you do that if the citizenship question is not on the census? >> they will get identifying information from the senses and match that with other federal databases to answer the question without asking the person. sometimes the person might lie. they might say i am a citizen when they are not. they might say i am here legally when they are not whereas this
way by matching the databases as a former computer scientist make sense to do it this way, the democrats and radical open borders left will try to delay the process beyond the time the senses can be printed. this way they may have won the delaying action but the census and commerce department will have accurate information about a simple question. how many of the united states are actually citizens. heather: is a matter of logistics and not legality and i'm wondering as you talk about it, seems like it will be very involved, will it cost more money to do it this way? >> i would have to see more details about the specific data but i don't anticipate it will cost substantially more money. the supreme court said it is perfectly acceptable to ask about citizenship. the president's team would have won and the attorney general said they would win this chase. the problem is it would take too
long. heather: you are running for u.s. senate from new mexico and as such, you know about the immigration problem. the new york times reporting about these nationwide ice raids set to begin sunday, originally came from the new york times that it would be 10 major cities, we can pull that up for you but these are people who have gone through the court process, the court process, they are living here illegally, correct? >> these are people who had their due process was a federal judge issued a deportation order. i don't hear democrats talking about rule of law because they don't like this outcome. these are people who had their day in court and they said you need to leave the country and they are defining the rule of law by illegally remaining. bill: nancy pelosi at the top of the show, what about democrats
telling them how they can get around this? >> it is unconscionable they would try to help people define the rule of law. you hear democrats saying illegal aliens had children in the united states who are citizens and that is also wrong. as a tribal member i can tell you i'm not a citizen because i was born in the united states. it took an act of congress in 1924 to make me, my parents and tribal grandparent citizens under the indian citizenship act of 1924. anybody who tells you the 14th amendment guarantees citizenship for anybody born in the united states is wrong. heather: thank you for joining us. we will see if this goes down on sunday and we will be reporting on it. thank you. have a great day and a great weekend. time is 20 minutes after the top of the hour, a tragic end to the search for missing kentucky mother as her heartbroken father

the trouble. huge amounts of rain, huge amounts of flooding and we are expecting the same thing with the storm, helps to explain the urgency of the president's tweet when he urged people on the gulf coast, quote, it is imperative, imperative that you heed the direction of fema, state and local officials working here fo years below sea level. it is the big easy as people call it. let the good times roll is the philosophy of the city. a lot of people are reticent to leave their homes because of potential for looting. they want to take it easy, they like being where they are and think it will pass. it is one of the reasons governor john bell edwards is employing people to make sound decisions. >> it is not too late to put your family in a better position. have a game plan.
this is a serious storm. the way the national weather service is describing it is life-threatening flood potential. that are to get everybody's attention. >> reporter: the city is proud of the fact it has the capability of being able to extract more water than any other city in the world. it has 120 pumps, each of which are capable of removing 1000 ft. of water per second. we are told all the two of those pumps are operational. it can move an inch of rain water within an hour and after half an engine of rain water for every subsequent hour but they readily acknowledge we are expecting 10 to 20 inches of rain and they cannot keep up with that. there will be flooding, how much we don't know. we will be watching. heather: katrina, memories fresh and everyone's mind.
prosecutors and police pushing fingers at jeffrey epstein who skipped the court mandated check-in for eight years. that according to the new york post. epstein was ordered to report to a manhattan courthouse after 90 days after registering as a sex offender but he never did. the report comes as a lawyer for two of epstein's accuses slam labor secretary alex r costa's deal with the financier. >> after that private 1-on-1 meeting it is clear victims were never told there was a signed agreement between epstein and acosta for federal prosecution. heather: he pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking charges on monday. the house judiciary committee voting to authorize subpoenas to 12 key witnesses in the mueller probe. donald trump's son-in-law and senior advisor jared kushner, former attorney general jeff
sessions and former deputy attorney general rod rosenstein. this comes ahead of robert mueller's series of hearings on capitol hill and according to the washington examiner nancy pelosi warning democrats to steer clear of drama. do you think that will happen? iran, let's talk about this, iran targeted a british oil tanker in the persian gulf, the latest sign of aggression from the rogue nation. is donald trump's maximum pressure campaign a reason for the new escalation and what does this mean for the us? here to discuss is the president of security studies jim hansen. thank you for joining us. what about this latest escalation? >> a clear sign that iran has not gotten the message. this was reportedly in response to the seizure of the tanker
that was taking iranian oil which is for didn't. now we have iranian faster boats harassing attempting to commandeer tanker in the strait of hormuz again and the only reason it didn't happen, the only reason we are not watching british hostages on tv is they have a warship escorting it. that is not a good enough thing to do. we can't escort every warship. heather: the british warship intercepted it. the american aircraft flew overhead. are they just trying to provoke the us? >> they are trying to show they will not be bound by the standards they are supposed to adhere to. i don't know how you start negotiations with someone who is willing to try and create a hostage situation and attack tankers. at some point the us or the brits or whoever is in the area needs to turn those iranian faster boats into flotsam and jetsam to let them know that is
not acceptable in the modern world. heather: hopefully things will de-escalate in that area. switching gears, you were at the white house social media summit yesterday, social media discrimination against conservatives, that was the key topic. what do you think of what transpired yesterday? >> it was very productive. the president brought leaders in congress have a cabinet and others together and we talked about what concrete steps we can take to stop tech giants from using their monopoly power to conduct viewpoint discrimination and we asked the president was he willing to use the investigative powers of some of the federal agencies to look into this and he said that is on the table. when the tech giants come in, to go and talk, bringing in facebook and twitter and google and youtube, to say you need to show us what you're doing that is causing this and show us what
you're going to do to stop it. we don't want government intervention. we wanted level playing field in the spirit of free speech. heather: here is something else the president had to say. >> i notice things happening when i put out something, a good one that people like, good tweet, take it down and it goes up, does anyone know what i am talking about? heather: lots of folks the what he is talking about. final word on this. >> tech companies have tremendous power, they built a tremendous product and we respect free-market capitalism but when you have a monopoly on a vital thing like information you need to treat everyone fairly. heather: jim hansen, great to have you with us, have a good weekend. the time is 20 minutes until the top of the hour, donald trump will need swing voters to come on top of the 2020 election but who are they and i democrats
>> the house will vote on renewing the victims compensation fund, if it doesn't pass, victims only have until december 2020 to file claims. $1.4 billion, the latest settlement related to the opioid crisis today. and addiction treatment medication will pay the us government the record amount of the government accusing the company of fueling the opioid
crisis by making false or misleading claims to promote the drug and drive up sales and it is also a type of opioid. swing voters played a pivotal role in donald trump's historic 2016 victory but who are those voters and could they hold the key to a democratic victory in 2020? deputy assistant to george w. bush, brad blakeman, let's look at this. the preliminary battleground state, arizona, florida, but what i want to take a look at, where the 2020 democrats are campaigning and out of this list only two potential battleground states, iowa and new hampshire. why are they only campaigning in two of the battleground states? >> those are the first state of
the union that have caucuses and primaries so they are looking at the selection process. they are going to go to tried and true base to gain the nomination, and have to improve messages to a broader audience including swing voters and independents. >> what the swing voters? >> they identify as a party but don't necessarily vote and a knee-jerk reaction with republicans or democrats, and association. they know where they are with micro-targeting, he is going through this before but he knows where his votes came from last time. the challenge is to keep those votes. >> the approval rating so far in
the top battleground states, new hampshire, wisconsin 46%, michigan 44%, pennsylvania, florida, 44%. looking at those numbers, good or bad? >> the president gets knocked out every day by 24 democrats running for the nomination including the liberal media, who gets his head knocked in every day, doing great and especially when you look at his record and these polls don't mean very much. if i were the president i would not be losing any sleep. i would be happy where i am because that is a good indicator where it is going to go and based on what we know, it turns on the economy and the economy cannot be going better. heather: can't pay attention 100% to polls the last time around.
when it comes time to get those swing voters they seem extreme this year talking about free healthcare for illegals, open borders, and will that attract swing voters? >> democrats are making an irreversible left turn. today they want to be identified as democratic socialists. america isn't going socialist in 2020. there base is so out of touch with the general population, which elects presidents. i don't think people will be for open borders, and raising taxes. the economy cannot be doing better. the middle class is not getting fair share.
every sector of this economy is doing well. good luck to them. if they make their left turn to be selected they will never be elected. heather: the dow closing at a record number again yesterday. thank you for joining us, appreciate it. the time is 15 minutes until the top of the hour. an incredible coast guard bust, on camera. how these brave service men are able to race down a submarine to catch the criminals inside. look like a movie. ♪ we're the slowskys.
