2:05 am
single thing he said in the speech. it's as though he believes unity means surrender and it's our job to surrender and that the 74 million americans who voted for trump, which by the way is massively more than ever voted for any republican before in history. todd: as for the former president's political few churks he told the washington examiner he will do, quote, something but not just yet. carley: all right. less than a week into joe biden's presidency, a second migrant caravan is already reportedly set to leave for the southern border today. todd: jackie ibanez joins us live as a majority of americans say they want it stopped. >> reporter: good morning. reports say the caravan is leaving from honduras despite calls from the biden administration to reconsider. guatemalan tv reports at least 3,000 migrants will meet before crossing into guatemala, entering mexico and heading towards the southern united states. this follows a migrant caravan

2:07 am
the changes are causing concern in the law enforcement community. arizona sheriff mark lamb joined us earlier to weigh in. >> this will cause a lot of problems not just for us in law enforcement in arizona and across the country, it also causes problems for our partners in mexico and guatemala. they'll have to deal with the caravan as well. it's because we are presenting to them we have weak immigration policies. >> reporter: meantime, a new poll says 60% of americans want this caravan stopped at the border. guatemalan media reports a caravan of migrants has been scheduled to leave el salvador for our border on february 14th. carley: thank you. todd: a fox news alert. an unlawful assembly declared in tacoma, washington after protests turned violent. >> [crowds chanting] todd: reported antifa protesters demanding that inmates be freed from a local

democrat-less america. carley: and next, is there more proof of big tech's push to curry political favors in washington, that story coming up next. ♪ it's still rock and roll to me. ♪ straining, and bloating, again and again. no way. more exercise. more water. and more fiber is the only way to manage it. is it? maybe you think... it's occasional constipation. maybe it's not. it could be a chronic medical condition called ibs-c, and time to say yesss! to linzess. linzess works differently than laxatives. it helps relieve belly pain and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements. do not give linzess to children less than six and it should not be given to children six to less than 18, it may harm them. do not take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe, stop taking linzess

>> look at the first week of this administration, it's russia, china, our adversaries who are benefiting. it's america last. remember what he said less than a week ago about unity. none of those actions have taken place. carley: putting america last, house minority leader kevin mccarthy slamming president biden for signing a slew of executive orders reversing several key trump administration policies. todd: as president biden pushes a message of unity, congressional leaders say his actions are purely partisan. congressman james comer joins us now. you don't think this is very unifying either, do you? >> absolutely not. the president can talk about
2:15 am
unity. but right off the bat he goes and by executive order gets rid of the keystone pipeline project, he rejoins the paris climate accord, he tries to double the minimum wage. these are issues that republicans have fought for because republicans have been focused on the economy and on the first day in the first hour of the job he does all of this without consulting with republicans, without committee hearings and he spooks the private sector at a time when we're trying to get americans back to work. carley: president biden is going to sign more executive orders this week, reversing some of former president trump's policies including reversing the transgender troop ban, rescinding the mexico city policy which has something to do with federal funding for places that provide abortions, establish a task force to reunify migrant families and reverse asylum system policies. what are some of the ramifications of these policies that concern you? >> well, it's. leland: it just looks to me
2:16 am
like -- it just looks to me like it's an american last policy. an american first policy, it would he focus on getting people back to work. it would focus on getting kids back in school. it would focus on vaccine distribution. these are issues that unify americans. if the president was sincere in his speech, he would try to he focus on issues that unify, not divide. and to begin with his very first bill that he sent to congress, it's a bill that gives amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants here in the united states. there's not a more divisive issue in congress than amnesty. and we've got -- we're a country of rule of law and to reward people that are here illegally to bypass people who are trying to get to this country legally is very disturbing and is very questionable why the president would start with issues like this that divide us. todd: let's drill down a little
2:17 am
more into the why on the immigration idea. his package faces steep odds on capitol hill. let's go through some of the highlights of it. that 100 day pause on deportations of illegal immigrants is definitely the thing that stands out. then you have the various pathways to citizenship, you have you that $4 billion aid package for central america that we talked about last hour. and then of course increasing the number of green cards. but the biggy for many trump supporters, halting construction of the border wall. if democrats are so pessimistic that this is going to go through, is biden putting this forward to say hey, progressives, i tried, giving himself political cover with both sides of his party? >> obviously, that's what he's going to do, there are a lot of moderate democrats that can't support that. you've already said on the show this morning an overwhelming majority of americans are opposed to more migrants coming from other countries into the united states illegally. we have a very high unemployment rate in america. we need to focus on getting
2:18 am
americans back to work. we need to focus on as i said earlier, getting kids back to school. we can't handle an influx of millions more people coming into this country. it's just not a good time when we're fighting covid and we have a lot of problems that we need to focus on, focus on america first. so these are the issues that republicans want to focus on, this what is we've been he focusing on over the past four years during the trump administration. we want to try to work with president biden. there are issues where we can come together and move america forward but starting with amnesty, that's not a good place to start in congress. carley: really quickly here, would you be willing to sign onto something more modest, maybe a pathway to citizenship for dreamers in exchange for border security. >> in exchange for border security, i think we would all be open for that. we want to make sure our private sector has jobs that can only be filled by guest workers by migrant workers. there are opportunities to come together. but the way the president has
2:19 am
started is a no deal, no go. todd: congressman, always a pleasure to have you on the program. thanks so much. check back in with us soon. still ahead, month after month of on and off riots have portland riots saying enough is enough. carley: one man with the coalition to save portland says antifa is a criminal enterprise and it's time that everyone recognizes it. he joins us next.

2:24 am
attorney, billy lynn, said it correctly, these are riots. when you allow riots to go unchecked for months and months, this is what we can expect. we've seen the powder keg explode in the northwest over the weekend, not only with what's happening in portland, but tacoma, seattle. it's wearing on everybody and you're right, how much more of this can we take? todd: it's not just scary images on your screen. there are financial impacts involved here. take a look at this. this is since the end of may. $4.8 million in physical property damage there in portland. $18 million in lost business revenue. and $6 million in police overtime. this doesn't come cheap when the cops have to be there at the ready all the time. is there enough of a reason at this point for businesses and residents to stay? >> well, what you're seeing is actually a lot of them are leaving. there's a local news outlet this
2:25 am
past week that wanted to talk about the -- that covid is the reason why businesses are leaving but in the downtown corridor you see corporations, small businesses, restaurants and people moving out of portland at an alarming rate. you're right, how much more can we take? you talked about the amount of money that it's costing our city but what we haven't really seen is the impact of the loss of income, the loss of live ability that portlanders are actually going through. todd: what does portland need right now? >> what we need is a new top cop and our top copies currently our mayor and -- cop is currently our mayor. he's not qualified to do his job. we need a commissioner that is not a politician, whose sole job is to come in here and re-establish liveability, re-establish an area of lawlessness and really give us what we need and that's
2:26 am
liveability and peace back in the city. todd: i don't know if you can see the video we're showing, they're burning a biden flag. it just shows that republicans, democrats, are the target of a lot of the folks there in the pacific southwest. something needs to be done to stop it, otherwise you'll lose an entire region. thank you, sir. carley: the time is 26 minutes after the hour. president biden's decision to torpedo the keystone xl pipeline project is leaving a lot of americans out of work. congressman brian styles says hundreds of wisconsin residents are losing their jobs. he joins us next. plus -- ♪ carley: would you look at that? a star is born. the high-flying floor routine going viral, coming up next. ♪ i throw my hands up in the air sometimes. ♪ saying ayo, got to let go.

carley: good morning. welcome back. republican lawmakers warning that president biden's executive order stopping construction of the keystone xl pipeline will be devastating to thousands of americans who were ready to work on the project. todd: one of the lawmakers joining us now is wisconsin congressman brian stiles. when you think keystone xl pipeline, you think of the dakotas and nebraska. how does the decision hurt your district in wisconsin. >> tough night with the packers losing in wisconsin. what really stinks, joe biden on day one killing thousands of jobs, hundreds of those from the state of wisconsin. wisconsin, we build things, we make things. men and women from the state of wisconsin were working on the keystone pipeline and on joe bidens' first day in office they got laid off because of a decision of joe biden looking to the far liberal left. we need to get this reversed and if joe biden is not willing to do it, congress is going to need
2:31 am
to act. carley: 11,000 u.s. jobs expected to have been created by the keystone xl pipeline in 2021. what are those people going to do now? president biden says he wants to give them clean green energy jobs but those jobs won't be up and running for a few years. what will those people do in the meantime? >> i spoke to the men and women who were directly impacted by this. a job in the future is not a lot of solace for someone that received a layoff notice on joe biden's first day in office. it doesn't pay the grocery bill, doesn't cover the rent or the mortgage. we need to have him reverse this decision immediately. if he isn't willing to do it, congress is going to have to act. todd: do you get a sense that the underpinning of a lot of this is that, oh, n a few years oil and gas are going to be done when in reality, let's take a step back and say that ain't happening any time soon. >> it's also completely a false
2:32 am
narrative that this oil and gas isn't coming to the united states. it's coming. it's just going to come by truck or by rail. a far less efficient and far less environmentally friendly manner than bringing it on a safe an thoughtful pipeline from canada to the united states. this makes us more dependent on russia and the middle east, more dependent on veins way l we need a -- venezuela. we need a north american secure supply of energy for our needs here in the united states. carley: canada is still going to be pumping that oil. they're just either going to ship it off to other countries or bring it into the united states by train. so what do you think killing the keystone xl pipeline really does for the economy or for the environment, rather? >> i don't think it does a lot for the environment. i think it does a lot for the far liberal activeists that joe biden is pander to. we need to reverse this decision immediately. we need to allow these men and women to get back to work. this is private sector
2:33 am
investment in infrastructure. it's exactly what we need right now when so many people across the united states are looking for work. the last thing we need is joe biden taking his pen and killing thousands of jobs on day one. todd: it will be curious to see if this potential lawsuit by canada to force this is going to happen. definitely pay attention to that. sir, i'm sorry about the packers. but again, when your defensive coordinator decides to have a horrible scheme there, you're going to lose. not rogers' fault. >> two minutes left with the football, you've got to go with the touchdown. you can't kick a field goal. it doesn't hurt as bad as the men and women that got laid off by the aca shun of joe biden on -- action of joe biden on day one. todd: thank you, sir, have a good one. carley: meantime, republicans pushing for looser done laws after purchases skyrocketed in 2020. lawmakers in nine states are

todd: do you remember when the media told us that the crisis on our southern border was made up by president trump? >> folks the president has manufactured one heck of a political crisis. >> donald trump is manufacturing a national security crisis. >> some question if there is a crisis at all as the president has claimed. >> it's a manufactured crisis. >> this is a manufactured crisis. >> a manufactured crisis. now it's president biden's turn to handle the surge as it reports say a second caravan is on it way. how will the progressive president handle this? >> here with her take fox news contributor rachel campos-duffy. the person in the last clip was the current press secretary for the biden administration. question for you, rachel challenge not so manufactured anymore is it. >> no. the crisis is even more important. remember, we have covid now. which wasn't the case when we were covering all these caravans during the administration. so here we have a situation where donald trump had effectively, very effectively
2:56 am
negotiated a remain in mexico policy while people's cases were being adjudicated. because if they were adjudicated in the united states. people would stab into the united states. so now changing that policy creates a very serious health crisis because we will have people who disappear into our country who have not gone through the proper health, you know, tests and examinations that we need to make sure that we protect americans. remember, think about it. we have americans on lockdown. >> we are destroying our economy. we are destroying people's businesses. their american dreams. we are throwing millions of people's health, mental health and wellness into question. you know, we have such a crisis in that. and at the same time, we have open borders. no lockdowns for people coming into our country illegally. it doesn't make any sense. jillian: yeah, you know, people who push for more lenient imforeign relation policies they say they are doing it in the name of compassion and people who want stronger borders are
2:57 am
heartless and cruel. i'm sure you have heard that argument before. how do you respond to that line of attack? >> well, first of all, as we covered many times over the last several years during the trump administration, little children are often the victims of this, you know, human trafficking during, you know, when you have these rules that are so loose. also, what about compassion for american workers? this is a time when so many americans are unemployed because of coronavirus, because of these lockdowns. and they -- and now biden administration thinks it's okay for, you know, thousands, if not millions of people who come here illegally and take those jobs because make no mistake, when people come across the border, looking for work, and they come illegally, they are not looking for jobs as journalists. as, you know, politicians. they are coming to take the low wage jobs that many americans need right now to put food on

the table. todd: meantime, rachel, the "new york times" is being absolutely excoriated will biden most religion justly observant president in 50 years. mr. biden's policies it those of pope francis who has sought to turn the church's attention to immigration policies and migration. what was your reaction? >> several. notice, look how they took the topic of human life and just, you know, usersed it down to the it term sexual politics. we are talking about human life. that's what we are talking about with abortion. and they just said well that's just sexual politics. more importantly, the "new york times" covering faith and religion reporting on faith and religion is like a vegetarian reporting on steakhouses. they know nothing about it. they mock people who cling to their bibles, who put faith at the center of their lives.
2:59 am
and in the case of joe biden, joe biden can say whatever he wants. he can say and he may very well be telling the truth when he says i'm personally against abortion, which the catholic church says is an intrinsic evil human rights issue of our time. he is not just any catholic a very powerful catholic. our faith says he has a responsibility to stop this violence, to stop abortion. and he hasn't. joe biden with all the -- has chosen power and money over being a good and faithful catholic over defending innocent life. and it's not just abortion. on the case of he was the vice president, went after the little sisters of the poor. anyone who had a conscious objection to it and then during covid the democrat party prioritized walmart and strip clubs and many things over church. over saying that it wasn't essential. so there is a lot of problems with the "new york times" weighing in on this.
