12:15 pm
to bin in poland but first to steve harrigan who is many kyiv with the very latest from there. steve? >> reporter: eric, that's the real area of concern that you mentioned, in eastern ukraine. it's there that ukrainian forces are fight against russian-backed separatests. two ukrainian-soldiers were killed on saturday, five wounded and a lot of shelling, which has increased dramatically over the past 48 hours. there are concerns that may be a pretext for a major russian are invasion. the russian-backed separatists have warned that ukraine could invade e. they've given no evidence of that and, of course, it would be highly unlikely that ukraine would invade given the enormous number of russian forces all aaround the worlder. in the meantime, the president here of ukraine, zelensky, has shown visible irritation at the repeated warnings from the u.s. about an impending, imminent russian invasion.
12:16 pm
here's zelensky. >> translator: it means crushing the national currency, money being taken out. can you live in that kind of country? can you have stability in that kind of country? no. >> reporter: he's certainly irritated about the effect those warnings are having on the economy. today more airlines announced they will no longer fly to ukraine until this has calmed down, and of course, the biggest show of force on saturday is when president putin oversaw ballistic missile exercises that can carry nuclear warheads. and as you mentioned the announcement that russian forces will stay in belarus, those exercises scheduled to end told. we expected to see those russian troops perhaps go back to their permanent bases, that's not happening. they're staying just two hours north of here. everything, back to you. eric: that is really close. steve harrigan in kyiv, thank you. arthel: well, by the way, poland not taking any chances to be president putin's new target, warsaw has signed a security
12:17 pm
pact with neighboring ukraine and great britain to strengthen cooperation as the net from russia is looming -- threat from russia is looming. mike tobin is not far from ukraine's western border. mike. >> reporter: and, arthel, many of u.s. personnel that was recently deployed here to poland ended up at this base. if most of them are prosecute 82nd airborne, some of them from the if 101, and given theistly of those soldiers and paratroopers in europe, their very presence is intended to send a message that the u.s. stands strong with its nato allies. their task is described as multi-mission capable. they may be assisting u.s. people, u.s. citizens who get in trouble here in this part of the world. they very well could end up adding manpower if the polish border gets overwhelmed with ukrainian refugees, and that is something that has the polish government very concerned. >> it would be very challenging for our country. we are aware of how big amount
12:18 pm
of ukrainians can reach poland after the invasion from rush russia. if we are creating our plan how to host those people. >> reporter: now, we visited a town right on the ukrainian/polish border. the people there are very scared. they fear that if russia takes over ukraine, that vlad a myrrh putin will just keep coming and keep taking more. we did not find a lot of affection for their ukrainian neighbors, and even if people did want to help, they fear that their numbers will just be too great and they won't be able to help. >> translator: in my opinion, we shouldn't take them in. the ukrainians are worse than the russians. >> translator: our town is too small. we don't have infrastructure to
12:19 pm
accommodate refugees. >> reporter: now, ukrainians have been immigrating to poland really since 2014 with the takeover of crimea and the destabilization of the eastern part of ukraine. so you do have some ukrainian people that are living in poland, so you would have some soft places and places that could absorb some of the refugees in the event that they materialize. but if they materialize in the numbers predicted, there will simply be too many. arthel? arthel: a potential, really complicated domino effect there. mike tobin in eastern poland, thanks, mike. eric: vice president harris is on her way back from that munich security conference where she met with ukraine's president zelensky and other world leaders, the vice president stressing need for a peaceful solution. >> we're talking about the potential for war in europe. i mean, let's really take a moment to understand the
12:20 pm
sentence of what we're talking about. -- significance. it is in the best interest of all that there is a diplomatic end to this moment. eric: a diplomatic end or there will -- will there be more? fox news contributor general keith kellogg joins us. is so, general, i mean, putin's got ukraine surrounded on three sides, he's now keeping forces in belarus. what do you expect? >> hey, eric. look, or eric, you know, one thing about putin, he's a riddle wrapped in an enigma. you never really know what he's going to do, but it's clearly an invasion force. you know, there's an old saying never bring a knife to a gunfight. well, it looks like he's bringing a cannon. he's got 75% of his army, he's got hundreds of aircraft, he's got missile systems, his air defense systems, he's got his field hospitals all arrayed around there. what i think is really interesting and i was watching the array of forces, he's now got his headquarters echeloned,
12:21 pm
and what he has is he has a breakthrough headquarters, and then he's got an expoiation headquarters. he's backed one behind the others. others. you rarely see that. you only see that if they need to have a significant expansion of their effort, and that looks like a rather major invasion going forward. when you start a war, look, you're getting the war genie out of the bottle. it's really hard to put that genie back in the bottle. it's always easy to start a fight, not easy to end one. i'd say they need to figure out how to do conflict resolution because, unfortunately, that window opened with the end of the olympics and also this is the eighth year anniversary of putin going into crimea. so he's a big guy on anniversaries, so i think the window's wide open for him going in right now. eric: can you explain what it
12:22 pm
means by having the top brass, basically, that shows you that he could be -- or he is prepared for an invasion and it's not bluffing. >> well, the reason -- first of all, putin doesn't bluff. he never has. he's a very strong -- i don't think he understands -- real well because he's only had one assignment in the kgb. what i'm talking about is east got his headquarters back one behind the other, and that is always when he decides to do a major offensive, that's what the russians to when they want to fight. you go, oh, boy, there's a reason he's doing this. so he's aligned his forces exceptionally well to fight. and when you look at the array of forces he's got, he's going to provide ukraine, if he goes, a multiple set of problems because they're coming from all directions. they're coming from the northwest, they're coming from the north, the east, the southeast and the south. so he's going to cause a lot of problems for ukraine when he goes in, more problems than they
12:23 pm
can solve. and first thing you're going to see, you're going to see some kind of cyber attack which is going to blind their forces and then an attack by special operations forces to decapitate the ukrainian government, in other words go into kyiv and take the government dispowrntion then he's going to send an exceptionally large amount of forces into ukraine, more forces than they can handle. i think it's going to be bloody but brief. eric: crimea, they thought they would roll over. that went for a decade, and the ukrainians are vowing to fight back. do you think this could drag out as a ger april rah -- guerrilla war and putin could bite off more than he could chew? >> yeah, eric, he is, to me. if he goes to the western part of ukraine, then i think he's got a big problem. but i think if he is smart and fights as he should fight if he's going to go in, then he goes to the eastern part of ukraine, the one-third that is basically russian-speaking, and he's got a huge area on the mean pa river.
12:24 pm
if he puts out one of his flanks and fights from the mean pa river to the east, i think he's going to be in pretty good shape. then he's got to go into conflict resolution, turn to the u.n. and say, okay, now what are with some -- this is not a nato fight because there are no nato forces there. ukraine is not a member of nato, so article v doesn't apply, an attack on one is an attack on all. is so they're on hair own, and it's unfortunate because they're facing an overwhelming amount of forces in the russian army. eric: the clock is ticking. the secretary of state meeting with sergey lavrov next week, perhaps on tuesday. we'll see, if anything, if the diplomatic window is still open or if putin's going to slam that shut. lieutenant general keith kellogg, thank you for your insight. as always. >> thank you. arthel: eric, here at home the white house is urn pressure to fix the nationwide supply chain crunch. we're going to explain how a piece of the new infrastructure

♪ arthel: conservative groups are calling for border states to taken matters into their that own hands in dealing with the surge of migrants. new numbers from border patrol show migrant encounters last month were double what they were in january 2021 when president biden took office. senior correspondent casey stegall is live on the border in la jolla, texas, with the latest from there. >> reporter: hey, arthel. fiscal year 2022 is what we're looking at here, obviously. it began last october, actually, for u.s. customs and border protection if, so is data has only been publishedded so far through the edge of january. and when you look at four months of figures already in the books, more than 643,000 migrant encounters have been recorded at

the southern border so far this year. compare that to almost 285,000 for the same period in 2021. the number of family units caught crossing up 717%. the number of unaccompanied minors has jumped 137% according to the feds. meantime, texas governor greg abbott says his state will continue for the long term with border enforcement, filling in the gaps left by the feds. >> texas is already allocating just for the next two years more than $3 billion for the state to step up and secure the border. part of that money is being used to fund 10,000 national guard. >> reporter: now, yesterday in the el paso sector agents identified what's called as a body carrier. hay say they safely removed 41 grams of fentanyl from inside the smuggler's body. will you see the picture.

12:32 pm
police any minute now, but i just want to show you this area a few days ago had dozens of semi trucks and other vehicles in it. now you can see police have taken control of wellington street. this was essentially the first lawyer that trucks were blockins were locking -- blocking. and you can see all the way up the hill there were several more trucks blocking traffic all the way past parliament building here on wellington. while police have cleared all of it, now they are in control of this area blocking traffic and blocking really anybody from from if even walking into this area except for them and for media. some people watching the tactics of police over the past couple days have been critical of it saying they used too much force than they needed to to get protesters out of here. and specifically the prison oversight agency in canada is looking into two instances that took place over the past couple of days. the first was on friday, the
12:33 pm
first day that police started really moving into this area. and that's when a woman was allegedly seriously hurt by a horse because mounted police were moving into this area. the second has to do with an incident that happened on saturday and what police call less lethal ammunitions which refer to things like gas canisters, tear gas canisters as well as rubber bullets. so police are looking into both of those instances to see if they used too much force in those cases to try to get protesters out of here. there's also criticism of prime minister justin trudeau who, as you know, invoke ised the emergencies act at the beginning of this week. police say that was instrumental in being able to clear the protesters, but a lot of people say the standards were not met to invoke that emergencies act which has never been used before. we learned from federal authorities this weekend, eric,
12:34 pm
that they froze 76 bank accounts with about $3 million in them as a part of this measure to crack down on protesters here. eric: and the woman, the canadian reports say she's 49 years old, and they are investigating that incident. grady trimble on the street in ottawa. grady, thank you. ♪ ♪ arthel: >> two months ago the president launched a multi-agency effort to support access to quality truck driving jobs now and in the years ahead. secretary buttigieg will sign the charter document for the women of trucking advisory board which will address challenges facing women in trucking such as barriers to entry, workplace harassment, mentorship and more. arthel: the white house last week talking up progress in retearing america's ailing trucking -- repairing america's ailing trucking with new
12:35 pm
programs. retirements have hit the trucking industry hard, by the way, leaving it short nearly 80,000 drivers. the supply chain crisis has shown us that truckers, including women drivers, help form the backbone of our economy. let's bring in ellen voya, president and ceo of the trucking women association. ellen, mice to have you back. give us an update, how is trucking recruitment getting better? >> more women are coming into the industry, but we were thrilled that in the president's bipartisan infrastructure bill that there were actually two diversity initiatives included. and as the press secretary mentioned, one is called the women in the work force act, and that's to create a women in trucking advisory committee. this was introduced by senator moran in kansas, and so i asked my start, tammy baldwin, to
12:36 pm
sign, it was very bipartisan, and then my congressman, mike gallagher, into dis'sed it in the house as well, and it was signed into law. we should be hearing in the coming weeks who will actually be serving on that committee. arthel: that's great when you have bipartisan cooperation. of course, you advocate for female truckers, you encourage women to get behind the wheel. how's your true recruitment going with your company? >> actually very well. more and more women are coming into the trucking industry. during the pandemic a lot of women who worked in service areas lost their jobs. so if they were in hospitality or working at restaurants or conferences or hotels, a lot of them lost their jobs. and they saw that the trucking industry had jobs, and they're not going away. and so our big push is to tell women that they can do this job job, and they can do it well, and they can make the same amount of money as men.
12:37 pm
arthel: that's good us -- because that's not always the case, unfortunately. do you have any insight on the supply chain easing up? how many more truckers, male and female, would need to be hired nationwide to ease the supply chain slowdown? >> well, i wouldn't just say that they need to be hired, they need to be e towned. we have a lot of drivers who leave because they're tired of the lifestyle, they're tired of being treated by either shippers, receivers, law enforcement or, you know, customers, they aren't getting the kind of respect that they really do deserve as skilled worker. and so we lose a lot of drivers especially at first when they realize what the lifestyle is like. however, 83% of women who come into the industry do so at the urging of a family member or friend, so typically women know what the lifestyle is like and have less turnover. so women make great drivers, have less turnover and actually have been town to be safer
12:38 pm
drivers as well. arthel: so i'm curious many closing here, you mentioned that some people are kind of -- the retirement levels are up because they're kind of sick of the conditions. how is that changing though? i know you said that women kind of know what they're getting into on the front en, how do you change that for, i guess, more men who are saying they're done with it? how can you repair the working conditions? >> well, the companies are trying to have -- [inaudible] they're trying to get drivers home more by having more local and regional and putting the long distance loads on rail and ship them from california to new york on a train. so they're trying to get drivers home a lot more. they're trying to have better equipment and also raising driver pay a lot. in the last year some companies have increased pay three times. so a lot of things are changing to make it a more desirable career, but we're all for that. arthel: okay. yeah, definitely. ellen, how do you pronounce your

12:44 pm
democrats have not seen numbers like this since 1992 when 41 house democrats decided to retire. 13 republicans so far have announced vacating their seats. let's bring in white house reporter phil westman on this. what does this mean for the democratic party when when you're seeing these defections total private sector or just saying i'm out of here? >> it means the democrats are reliving the nightmare of republicans in 2018,s and the gop has zero sympathy. if you look at 2018, you had 34 republicans who headed for the exits early. what happened? democrats retook control of the lower chamber. now you've got 30 democrats who are headed for the exit, and that means the democrats not only have to play defense, they have to rebuild by finding new candidates and play defense at a moment when the president's approval ratings are low and historical trends don't favor them. so this could be a rough november for democrats. erin everything why are we
12:45 pm
seeing this trend? is it politics? is it redistricting? is it making more money? >> it could be a mix of all three and certainly there are some on the left who are saying the conventional wisdom that the map necessarily favors republicans, they're saying that might not be true and that perhaps the median voter might be to the left of joe biden and losses could be mitigated. that said though, i think what we are seeing right now is that the unifying factor of the democratic party up this the last election day was donald trump. president biden, he ran on a number of things, certainly, but his message was i'm going to be the guy who's going to replace trump. and since he's been in office, he has kept a tenuous peace between proifgs and moderates, but with an agenda stalled in congress, i think what we're seeing right now is perhaps more animosity, more tension, and there's an argument over what is going to be the animating animosity, more tension, and principle of the left. at least for now you've got 30 house democrats who aren't ready to stick around for that fight.

november. and i think that, you know, it's going to be very difficult for president biden, for house speaker nancy pelosi to come up with a unifying message, one that isn't just, all right, well, let's keep donald trump from the -- eric: and quickly, do you think republicans are take the house? >> historical trends seem to indicate that they will. certainly the president's approval ratings aren't going to be doing democrats any favors. republicans, you know, unless they screw this up and, certainly, that might be possible of doing that, but, yes, it seems like it's going to be a red november. eric: okay. real clear politics white house reporter phil wegmann. always good to see you, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. eric: of course. arthel: it has been nearly two years since the coronavirus pandemic began here in the u.s. one aspect of the virus continues to baffle scientists, why some people lose their sense of taste and smell after being affected. as dr. marc siegel explains, genetics could play a big role.
