as a terrorist group, differently sending a strong tough message to iran tensions are high and we are willing to respond in a defensive posture. >> scary for everyone here at home because you wake up and you hear the word war and possibly going to war, what would be the straw that would break the camel's that? what would forces in that direction? >> intelligence reports came out of missiles targeting us troops. >> there is allegedly some video of that but the video has not been released. >> if that is so where they want to be more offensive there is a retaliatory a situation but the united states has a strong military,. we are stronger than iran. since they cut off the iran deal
we have a diplomatic communication with them. tensions are a lot worse in terms of trying to communicate with each other and what is going on here, it could turn into an escalation. shannon: what about the troops? what are their concerns when we talk about sending more troops over there? >> it is very concerning. we work in close proximity in this environment. it is definitely a concern. 120,000 troops there and reminds you of the bush time. when you look at the whole situation, differently a leak from a last resort of sending in troops of that scale.

shannon: heather: pat robertson making headlines for saying this about alabama's controversial abortion law. >> alabama has gone too far. it is an extremely. they want to challenge roe versus wade my humble view is this is not the case we want to bring to the supreme court because it will lose. heather: carly shimkus is here with mixed reaction. >> famous televangelist, fiercely pro-life but not on board with his restrictive abortion law because he doesn't think it will win. he is taking issue with the fact that doctors who perform
abortions could face 99 years in prison, it doesn't make exceptions for rape and incest. his opinion catching a lot of people by surprise. this twitter user says he doesn't think it is too extreme in principle. he thinks it is too extreme to what the supreme court battle, that making a distinction. this histogram post saying when pat robertson think that abortion law is extreme you know something is way off. another instagram commentor saying that robertson needs to reread the bible when it comes to god's word. murder is murder. he doesn't think this is a good legal strategy but a lot of folks who oppose this law by saying if he thinks it's too far then it has got to be too far. >> let's talk about kamala harris who is turning tables on joe biden saying he would make a great running mate.
>> i think people want to speculate about running mate i encourage that because joe biden would be a great running mate. he has proven he knows how to do the job. >> joe biden is way in the lead but kamala harris looking very confident flipping the script saying how about a harris biden ticket as opposed to a biden harris ticket. scott says someone should show her the pole numbers. you will make a strong team. this one says there is not a winning combination between all of the supporters there. another one entering the race today. we will have to wait and see about that. let's talk about this. we showed video of mick jagger dancing. this epic team. >> it is amazing stuff. it is incredible because he has open-heart surgery. about a month ago, 75 years old
and back in action. showing us how it is done. he doesn't look 75. >> i thought it was a joke at first. >> there was chatter in the studio. someone said that has got to be from a a few years ago but it was recently posted. >> i will go ahead and say getting ready for another tour. good for him. the time is 25 after the top of the hour. donald trump hours away from feeling his sweeping plan to overhaul immigration. our next guest tells us the white house work on that proposal, why he says democrats could get on board with the plan. stay with us. ♪ i'm in love ♪ i'm a believer ♪ i couldn't leave her if i
>> will come back. look at our top headlines this morning, half past the top of the are, the us has ascended all commercial and cargo flights between the us and venezuela. the dhs is political unrest and increased tension is posing a risk. the disputed government agreed to meet with the opposition party to discuss the country's crisis. new york city mayor bill diblasio is expected to announce his 2020 presidential run today. he would be the 23rd democrat to jump into the race for the oval office, he is expected to visit iowa, south carolina this weekend. donald trump set to unveil a new immigration plan telling fox news will focus on merit-based immigration making more migrants with specialized skills and exceptional students. here to react to the new plan is
research fellow at the hoover institute, jeremy call. thanks for joining us, appreciate it. you contributed the material to this plan. >> i don't want to overstate my role. some folks in the white house and more, folks in the immigration community but we will see when it is unveiled, we will move toward a focus on skilled immigration and that is very welcome from that perspective. what is more concerning to folks on the right is it is ultimately symbolic because democrats are not likely to go along with anything the administration says was we move backward from the raise act when we were cutting immigration to an opening bid but there was no immigration cut
eventually. shannon: let's look as we get into the pluses and minuses but look at a breakdown of the plan. the white house's immigration plan ends the visa lottery program and imposes new security measures at the border implement a merit-based admission system. some things it does not do is change the number of immigrants the us will allow to legally into the country every year and does not address illegal immigrants in the country or dreamers. it is the second attempt at immigration reform since the president has been in office. >> that is correct and i think they don't even try to touch the dreamer issue in this and that is fine. the move toward skilled immigration is great.
the democrats who oppose whatever the administration goes, moving much more toward a canadian style merit-based system, democrats are fond of policy north of the border but we are really doing a bunch of sensible things and my concern as i would love to see something where we say we will have a big increase but we could have a net cut by eliminating some of this unskilled and extended family unification so we are not talking about parents and their minor children but uncles and grandparents and things like that, not getting an automatic green card. >> this on the heels of lindsey graham's immigration plan, we got the details of that yesterday and in his plan he says migrants must apply for asylum and an embassy in their home country or in mexico, returns unaccompanied minors to their home countries and assigns 500 immigration judges which we are sorely in need of. what do you think of his plan? >> it is interesting given the
source, two different views and immigration judges. it is something similar to increasing judges at one deck and then trump came back and said what we need to do is fix the issue so that we don't need these judges but given where we are it is useful for us to increase the judges. it is absolutely useful to force folks to apply for asylum in places where they should come in their home country of mexico, that is what the law said they should be doing. the asylum laws are being horrifically abused. >> either way it all comes down to whether democrats will vote in favor of anything the administration suggests. we will see what happens this time around. we appreciate it.
have a good day. the state department may have tried to target donald trump after he already won the 2016 election. judicial watch obtaining an email exchange from bruce ohr, and article links suggesting a russian gave money to donald trump's campaign to which ohr replied hope we can get something going, we will take another look at this. british asked by christopher steele had a connection to a russian businessman. that man happens to be the alleged source for the anti-trump dossier. donald trump signing an executive order escalating the cyber security battle with china. 74 countries deemed national security threats along with technology giant huawei.
the trump administration says the company is a threat in the race to build new 5g networks. huawei fire back saying, quote, restricting huawei from doing business in the us will not make the us more secure or stronger. instead this will serve to limit the us to inferior yet more expensive alternatives leaving the us lagging behind its 5g deployments. under 2020 paul has joe biden and double-digit lead over donald trump in pennsylvania which is biden's home state. biden has a 46% advantage. in 2016 donald trump was the first republican to win the keystone state in 30 years. joe biden remains the clear front runner of the 22 declared presidential candidates but dana perino says biden's popularity
will soon be tested. >> he is vulnerable on a couple things. one, he started reacting to alexandria ocasio cortez because she is needling him. i would ignore her if i were in the biden camp but he is going back at her. it doesn't look right. i also think the opponents are playing nice right now. everybody -- they are going to start attacking him. he hasn't faced one negative ad but you study to see kamala harris. what did you do? she went after him about the crime bill and she is vulnerable on crime issues herself. the internecine warfare, we will see if you can keep that obama glow and the numbers as high as they have been. >> biden has set up his first round of fund-raising events with new york city's biggest donors. that will happen next month we are told. right now the trump campaign will give away the one
millionsth m aga had signed by the president himself. the team is sending an email to supporters thing anyone who contributed tuesday would automatically be entered in a raffle. the hat will be hand delivered to the lucky winner by the president at a trump rally. pretty exciting for a fan of the president. 29 minutes until the top of the our. a new study saying when it comes to safety on the roads bigger is better. which models are best to protect you and your family? >> what is on airplanes? >> i don't disagree. >> new audio reveal the heated confrontation between pilots and boeing officials in the weeks before the second deadly 737 crash. why wasn't everyone on the same page?
the fcc taking steps to stop the influx of unwanted calls that most of us deal with every day all hours of the day. tracy carrasco here with the plan. >> there could be a light at the end of the tunnel because these robo calls seem to keep going. last month alone there were 5 billion calls made in the us, 15 calls for every american on average but the fcc announcing they will vote in june whether to allow phone companies to establish call blocking services as default. the phone companies would be allowed to block these calls for consumers without us having to sign up for any special service. the second proposal goes even further, greater customization. consumers would be allowed to have the carrier block any calls not in a contact list.
that does seem extreme but many people would agree these robo calls are out of control. the fcc says 60% to 70 billion robo calls are expected to be made in 2019 alone. shannon: let's talk about this next story, small used cars are the most dangerous and one in particular. >> bigger might be better when it comes to buying a vehicle, especially use one according to new research. they looked at data with the national transportation safety administration and came up with a list of vehicles on your screen marked with the most fatalities. topping the list, sub contacts, mitsubishi mirage, chevrolet corvette, honda fit, kia force, chevrolet spark, mitsubishi standing behind your vehicle saying no two crashes are the same, the vehicles need regulations and safety standards.
heather: the statue of liberty museum opening its doors after two years of construction. the $100 million project featuring the original torch right here in new york city. we get a sneak peek. >> the statue of liberty is an american icon welcoming 20,000 visitors to her island a day but capacity research and limited free to just 5000 people meaning most miss out on the museum inside until now. >> 25,000 people on the island, we really wanted those 80% to have as rich an experience as possible. >> that will be available to all visitors to the island with a new statue of liberty museum
officially open with three calories telling the story of the statue. >> how it got here, what it means, how it became a national symbol. over 130 years it has been in existence. >> reporter: construction crews have spent three is moving artifact like the original golden torch to the new structure. >> we wanted to honor the statue. that was differential to it. the hope is this would feel it almost grew out of the ground. shannon: visitors are welcomed with a film on the statue of history and then a gallery meant to re-create the sculptor's workshop. it features an interactive component where visitors can take a photo and choose words they associate with liberty. the image then goes up on a bigger wall about becoming liberty. >> an area we call the inspiration gallery. we hope visitors will be inspired. >> reporter: and educated. heather: the time is 15 minutes until the top of the hour.

time today here with you to take executive action to ban the import of assault weapons into our country. >> the 2020 presidential hopeful pushing views executive orders to clamp down on constitutional rights. do voters want that? thank you so much for joining us, we appreciate it. i start with you. is this what voters want? >> what we've seen through the mass shootings, protests, rallies, some effort to crack down on gun violence. about 20 million a are 15s in america, 4 million are imported from other countries. the second amendment ensures the right of every american to keep and bear arms, not for other countries to dump weapons on our shores. this is a very reasonable gun reform effort that will help not only gunowners, not only help
the community but help gun producers not to have to compete or cheat for foreign knockoffs flooding the market. heather: antonio? >> trying to use that argument for constitutional rights but the second amendment says we have an individual right to keep and bear arms and he is using big government which he loves in order to keep people from having access to all different type of arms. weather made in america are not that a the issue. she is directly attacking our second amendment right, rights that are god-given, not constitutionally given, constitutionally protected. think she's going to be president and use executive order to restrict that, that is what american voters don't want. they see this rhetoric by democratic party.
how many times have we heard from the anti-gun that no one coming here to take your guns. seems more and more policies that are supposed to be about protecting americans, empowering citizens are restricting our options more. heather: the proposal would ban imports of assault weapons, mandatory background checks, it would revoke, would have the ability to revoke licenses and prosecute gun makers and sellers and close the so-called boyfriend loophole. what we were just discussing is it is a constitutional right she is talking about with this executive order. >> absolutely. i am a second amendment person. i have more guns than antonio does, ar 15, all sorts of guns.
the point is what ends up happening is cheap foreign knockoffs flooding the market affecting price of guns, allowing people who cannot afford a firearm to buy these cheap knockoffs. >> is it correct to try to fix that issue with an executive order? >> what we have seen becomes even the most reasonable, this is a reasonable effort at gun manufacturers would support, you have to have some action for congress to want to act. if you want to restrict, these are not as safe as american-made or as reliable as american-made, do not protect the community as well as american-made firearms. i'm surprised about constitutional period. >> is that the heart of her reasoning behind the executive
order? >> i think it is very cute that he automatically thinks he has more guns than me. native texan here but second of all of course kamala harris is wanting to push this because this is something on her agenda. most people know that in 2019 up to 22% of gun owners are women and even more so than that, the fastest growing group of the gunowners are women. we are saying we want to protect our second amendment rights. i'm a black woman thing we want to protect the second amendment rights. whole campaign is based on race and gender. if you want to protect black women, protect people that look like me, make sure you listen to what they are progressing and what they are saying is we want to protect ourselves and protect people around us and don't do anything to restrict our access
to do so. shannon: we have just begun with the campaign so we will see how it transpires from here. thank you for joining us, appreciate it. the time is 8 minutes until the top of the are. you think you had a bad day at work? it pales in comparison to this. the window washers hanging on for dear life as their basket swings wildly in the wind in the car so dirty this driver got find. police responding to the fast food fueled ride and they are not loving it. ♪ that's a blazer? that's a chevy blazer? aww, this is dope. this thing is beautiful. i love the lights. oh man, it's got a mean face on it. it looks like a piece of candy. look at the interior. this is nice. this is my sexy mom car. i would feel like a cool dad. it's just really chic. i love this thing. it's gorgeous. i would pull up in this in a heartbeat. i want one of these. that is sharp. the all-new chevy blazer. speaks for itself.
