1:02 pm
right now so if tropical storm hit, there could be another catastrophe and residents who evacuated are not being allowed to go back in to collect belongings before the demolition, too dangerous. officials tell us they are using a camera looking for any pet might be trapped and so far, no animals have been found. more than one week after the collapse from rescuers are intensely searching schematically 24 hours a day, a maximum number of people who can work on the piles are out there. we spoke one on one for the firefighter part of the search and rescue teams and she says she has hope there could be a miracle, big machines removing large chunks in humans coming in with shovels and hands. >> debris sifting through my hands from where looking for bodies but also human remains which we have been finding a lot of so that's all things we need to verify and look through, we just can't wrap entire pieces of rubble and just remove it

1:05 pm
terrain hitting south florida and gusty winds that's when you can see problems even as the storm center is over surfside or any locations, process the winfield into monday morning, you are seeing stronger winds along the south florida coast so of course this is a system we are going to track closely the next couple of days. >> you said we will have a better idea sunday night to see exactly where it's going to go. thank you so much. and we will have much more about search and rescue efforts and what role the weather could play with surfside, the mayor charles will be with in a few minutes. ♪♪ home and security alejandra merrick is set to travel next week to discuss shared priorities with counterparts back. this comes as migrants from the region continues to make a dangerous journey for the southern border.

1:08 pm
tool. who knows who argue for those who get over the wall, the wall is meant to slow them down, it slows them down, it's a small wall and then they can make an arrest. >> what you are looking at right now is the unfinished border wall being built during donald trump's presidency, as soon as president by came into office, you can see the construction came to a halt and that's why greg abbott says he wants to build his own wall. the question that will be what kind of lawsuit the governor will take over the law professors told us you can expect to potentially end up in supreme court as a state right in feds issue. back to you. >> thank you. california almost problem is growing and in some cases

1:18 pm
governor desantis and he and i did read agreed if the building is a problem, we need to eliminate the problem as soon as possible so i reached out the mayor and rest my concerns and i think coming around to the idea possible in the best interest of everybody from a logistical who goes from historical sites close to getting people out of the you have so many people in there right now, the investigation met we don't have so many people in there right now, the building and so has the building to the north and there are no buildings to the west, the direction in

which the building collapse with regard his equipment to move out, of course. we are flooded with resources so they will have to be repositioned but as far as residents go, we don't have that issue. >> in terms of the investigation, we have seen allegations of neglect, we have videos taken from first hand account from folks who were there and now we have new york times report who talked to an engineering talking about this construction of the building basically the birth of the structure, and engineer saying they confirmed the amount of steel used to connect concrete slabs below parking deck might be less than the project initial land specified so you have this
1:20 pm
one building and questions but you also have multiple buildings in your communities, how far back you go when looking at plans for the building surrounding the area to ensure, other folks who live in area in the community, they are safe? >> i've directed my staff.every scrap of paper related to all the buildings, get them scanned and up on our website for everybody to reveal. you might see them before i do. the steel columns are a big issue, very close by less than one block away built by the same developer probably with the same materials same plans and since we can explain why the children just fell down, i've written a letter to the resident offering alternative housing options several of them have taken up the offer so we are going into that building in particular and we got our engineer from we are going to do a deep dive in the systems, we are going to can the

radar, infrared high-tech equipment to determine the amount of steels in the columns and that's going to be undertaken in the near future, days and the information will be compiled, since obviously within the next 30 days we should have a good idea of whether the amount of steel structure substandard or adequate. >> i do know mayor, you and the mayor of miami-dade are doing we can get this done as soon as possible and we should mention the national institute of standards and technologies are also there. this is the same oversight team the world trade center collapse and they are there in surfside, how is it that the team is working with your team? >> i've met with the director and his assistant was going to be staying here doing the work.

mayor, has been phenomenal, she's had a huge weight on her shoulder and has performed admirably. the governor desantis has been incredible, he's been here almost every day coming down from north florida, two centers happened excellent, rick scott text me everyday and says you need anything, don't call me back but i want to make sure you are okay. we have schultz and other u.s. representatives here, it is amazing that we don't have a resource problem, we have a lock problem. we spent playing with rain from a fire's, delays by structure moving now a hurricane so it's been challenging for us and the families but in the end we never stop, just keep going and we are going to keep working until every single person is pulled out of that rubble.

1:25 pm
the big question now is what lies ahead for afghanistan, there real concerns the afghan government may not survive long after u.s. troops leave, even civil war should the government fall. the telegram gains in the country, very much putting afghan forces under pressure and the group welcomes the rest withdrawal from backgrounds and much depends on whether afghan security forces and hold their ground against the telegram and coming months as the rest of u.s. troops leave the country. anita: thank you for that report. alicia: president biden spending time in michigan today trying to drum up support for bipartisan infrastructure package as the house passes a spending plan of its own. jeff weighs in on all of this, next. ♪♪

1:35 pm
station in manhattan for tombs under the hudson river, why did you file against that? >> because of so many other reasons. they will take a good idea or something that has some value stuff and other kinds of stuff into the bill. number one, it not going anywhere, it's just a messaging bill. senate cats have already said clearly they do not agree with this deal. start with trucking, goods and services across the country, it is going to cost more for travelers because there are new prohibitions in this bill for trucking. what's wrong with the bill, we are going to be on our knees the chinese communist and slave labor more than we ever were because we are going to need even more government and minerals and electrical parts of

the bill and we didn't put anything in the so we could find our own by chain and make our own supply chain, china china controls the congo at 95% so again we are hurts. undocumented people who live on the border illegally in makeshift small towns in this bill are going to get infrastructure. we are not hoping to build abortus, we are not helping the men and women's who work for law enforcement after literally putting their lives on the line but we are going to pay for infrastructure undocumented books. >> , and for confused, this paves the way for larger infrastructure bill and that's what i keep hearing about $.2 trillion infrastructure
1:37 pm
bill, right? members caps on around, that is one of the bills. the president of huggins and democrat have bipartisan meeting which never happens with this bill, it wasn't one bipartisan bill and they worked out a bill that is not 50% green new deal, this is 50% renewed young stuff, they worked out a deal that would deal with, they haven't done yet but roads, bridges, broadband, what we know is really important to everyone. bottom line, our country, wrote are falling apart and bridges are falling apart, the dams are strong and get we are fooling around with messaging bills which are most of it does nothing but hurt. by the way, it increases redtape, it's going to take longer and cost more to get infrastructure done. every man, woman and child is an
1:38 pm
american will pay more this bill actually became law. anita: what happens to it in the senate? >> it gets blown up and goes nowhere. i guess the okay with the bill has to be at least majority of it is good so they have their own ideas and want to get real infrastructure done for real americans and this is another example of the tremendous disconnect between americans who are mainstreet and what happened in washington d.c. anita: the democrats want to use reconciliation biden said he wants it to be voted on by september, the larger package, do you see that happening? >> it could if we work in a bipartisan way but we are not going to do reconciliation and not spend on the second bill he wants, $6 trillion.
1:39 pm
we are expanding inflation, i don't know where the president buys his hotdogs but are mainstreet, maybe he's got good deals, maybe he can give everybody shopping advice but the bottom line, everything is costing more, gas is 1 dollar more a gallon and a lot of businesses struggling, they don't even seem to know that because they can't get employees because unemployment rate went up and there are a lot of people making more money by staying home. that is not americanism. anita: prices are going up on african. infrastructure wants to be done so we are going to watch this and see what happens. thank you so much for spending time with us today. >> have a great july 4. anita: you too. the white house depending kamala harris and staff after reports of a toxic dysfunction work environment in her office. that next.

mid city criticism apparently the border crisis vice president kamala harris, political report among her office staff, sources claiming the toxic culture starts at the top. here's the headline political, not a healthy environment, kamala harris is correct with the scent another report says some democrats are raising concerns over just how viable candidate and vp could be in the 2024 presidential race. joining us now, sarah, political reporter at the washington examiner. thank you for being here today before we get started, i want to listen to what jen psaki said on this issue. >> i will say the vice president is an incredibly important
1:45 pm
partner to the president, she has a challenging and hard job she has a great supportive team of people around her but other than that, i'm not going to anymore comments on the report. >> officially the white house doesn't seem to want to talk about this too much but how big of an impact do you think this is having? >> i think the reason why the reports are getting so much scrutiny is because they are viewed the lives of kamala harris as the successor for president biden and potentially that could happen sooner than you would assume her typical president because joe biden's age is so advanced and there is speculation that perhaps 2024 he may not run for reelection kamala harris is viewed with a lot more scrutiny than she what otherwise, the president widely affected to run for reelection and state in office for eight years. it is part of a pattern we've seen with kamala harris since the democratic primary.
1:46 pm
stories of dysfunction on her staff being prepared for things she should be prepared for followed her since the democratic primary and her campaign which was highly anticipated at the time, imploded before many other confederate because of back dysfunction so i think this is indicative of our problems the biden team knew they were taking on when they added her to the ticket. she brought a lot to the table electorally so she was a smart choice in that regard but look at the fact that the biden teams surrounded her with aids that were originally on the biden campaign promise she didn't bring a lot of her original staff with her into the vice presidency and i think that's because the biden people knew there was dysfunction in her office and wanted to head these problems off. >> how much does this reporting about the ongoing in her office and organization or disorganization, how much does that impact what her job as vice president, how much of an impact does that have?
1:47 pm
>> in terms of for job and what she's doing, in a lot of ways president biden set her up for failure. he's handed her a lot of issues that are thorny and have given him trouble with progressives so by putting post on her plate, he's giving her a tough time already despite the fact that she comes to the table with pre-existing problems so for example, when biden was getting a lot of criticism from the right and the left on mismanagement of the border crisis increase in illegal aggression i was a result of biden's undoing a lot of the trump administration policies, he put on her plate and by was an unavoidable battle because there was no way the biden administration was going to pursue the policies proven to work in the situation and another thing biden put on her plate that was difficult was the voting rights, a bill in the senate always doomed to fail. there's no right now compromise i could possibly get to the
1:48 pm
senate that so divide has the filibuster intact. as long as biden put these difficult issues on her plate and asking her to take them on, he's doing her no favors and that doesn't set her up for success in 2024 either. >> you have a biden senior advisor saying he told an interviewer that this whisper campaign is designed to sabotage her but you are saying is boss is the one put this on her plate and is the one who is actually sabotaging her, is that what you are saying? >> the fact that she has these issues in her portfolio doesn't help but a lot of the problems are adherent to kamala harris because we have heard these criticisms dating back to the early days of her primary campaign. the fact that she was unprepared and in particular that she's not good on her feet. we saw the on the campaign trail when running for president, she wasn't prepared to answer questions at her from reporters being unscripted so it is not
1:49 pm
just biden's fault in that regard. >> we always want to talk about it. sarah from the washington examiner, thank you for joining us. anita: 60 years after president eisenhower left office, one of his presidential claims planes is back in the air. more on how the bird is taking flight again. next. ♪♪

it not different systems munication equipment for air force one's i was told it's still a stable safe airplane. in the 1950s, helicopters reliably get but resident eisenhower wanted a plane to fly to his ranch in gettysburg so he asked generals to find him a twin engine plane so they put a bid and the air force bought five of them but the planes we got to see is the last one of the five still flying today. >> back in the 50s, helicopters were not reliably get so eisenhower wanted a plane to fly down to his grandson gettysburg he told his generals to find a twin engine airplane to land on the grass strip that's reliable and safe. >> many of the instruments inside are still original and i got an up close look.
