1:22 pm
governor. he added if an official charge is filed would likely be a misdemeanor so i'm not asking to litigate the case here with this criminal conduct complaint. however, what is your stance? >> thank you for having me here to talk about this important issue. i would say it's important and it's good that law enforcement and district attorney's counties where many of these disturbing allegations have taken place are taking it seriously the district attorney i represent westchester in the assembly as well, they are doing investigation it is important the victims are able to find peace and justice, the governor get due process, it's important for people to know this criminal investigation in the criminal proceedings should be running now concurrently with
1:23 pm
what we are doing in the legislature fighting for impeachment. a lot of my colleagues and majority in the senate to pass several months from up there calling for the government to resign. there calling for the governor to resign, it's not going to do anything. he's the only one with power to resign. i have the power to impeach and i think it time my colleagues and assembly exercise that power and remove the governor. arthel: the governor is still fighting. one of his attorneys held a lengthy briefing. >> for the majority of the witnesses interviewed, they were not transcribed. this would become, if you accept the report as is, without giving him evidence, i tell you that an irresponsible and new standard for impeachment. arthel: investigation by the
1:24 pm
attorney general's office was tainted by politics. what is your reaction? >> i think that was predictable, we knew the governor's office would respond that way. i did hear the president of united states say resign the top chair resign for a moment but the governor might have the common decency to think it through and do the right thing and resign. the response and defense from his lawyers yesterday on the governor's website that shows he's going to be completely defiant and shows his strategy. i think they misrepresent misrepresent the facts themselves and rightfully responded to the accusations and the other thing with impeachment, specifically powers for rule of governor, that in itself includes a portion of due process. if the governor wants the case,
1:25 pm
he's going to be able to do that in the senate and as far as the criminal proceedings, can have concurrently like i said earlier, the comments lawyers made were directed at the last agree just allegations in the ag report which they provide enough evidence in that report. i read it in for them dismiss that, i think that is responsible but the big important things like a trooper, they barely even talked about that. i think they were unprepared to talk about it. arthel: that stood out to me as well yesterday. this was released yesterday and it shows 70% of your response governor cuomo to resign as you discussed, the governor on the same page but how much time does the governor have to continue to find these calls for resignation
1:26 pm
before he is called to the senate. you think it will get to the. >> i think it could. with everyday he was defiant, i think it's getting to where the assembly speaker and top elected officials are using losing credibility by the minute. he even declared i was a couple weeks ago -- that's an extreme amount of power for the, and he still has that power today. he's shown he's willing to intimidate lawmakers so we shouldn't delay any further but if he doesn't, the assembly majority is going to be compelled to act. i'm doing everything in my power arthel: quickly. >> they put a deadline for him to respond evidence by the end of next friday, my belief is
1:27 pm
immediately schedule us to consider a vote on impeachment. i was tough on it today and five months ago but ultimately, we are outnumbered in the new york state legislature. the speaker has a tremendous amount of power and we need to convince him and i'm hopeful we can get this done before the end of the month. i want to get it done now and before i lose you, impeachment is important because as disgusting and offensive as some of these allegations are in the attorney general's report, there's a lot of other things impeachment investigation and assembly looked up. all of those things because the vaccines are. arthel: so the bottom line before we go, there is definitely a lot of wrong ones at the governor so it's going to be interesting to see this

conundrum he finds himself in. new york state assemblyman evan thank you for joining us and we'll have you back on as the story continues. thank you. eric: on the southern border, the border cities and communities have been dealing with the migrant prices for months. some of them are forced to shelter hundreds of covid positive migrants. migrants carry coronavirus, lawmakers in congress demanding action coming up, we'll talk to one of them new mexico. she has the bill she says will protect us. ♪♪

on top of the record search of the southern border, many communities are dealing with arise a number of covid positive migrants. migrant encounters of the border steadily increased over the last
1:33 pm
few months but the numbers are expected to surpass 200,000 for july. the biden administration is extended the trump era title 42 policy. expels some migrants to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. cities say they're still being covered migrants in the communities. our next guest has a bill called the shield act to make title 42 permanent to protect americans from covid. new mexico republican, long part of the border. congresswoman, welcome. what were the shield act do? >> it's a great bill that would codify title 42. that's the public health order that president trump putting that allows regions to expel them illegally mexico or canada so they do a process from the water and immediately do it and
1:34 pm
i was put into play because of this pandemic. under this administration they are only allowed to use title 42 about half of the time so we could codify this into law and use it, there's no doubt it would help safety and welfare of the american people. eric: they were even going to drop it a few weeks ago and then they reduced it because of the influx? >> i don't know but it's a great topic talking points but let's be clear, they are not using title 42 hunt family unity and only using it on about half of the unaccompanied minors who coming in let me explain this, even with title 42, they were able to expel 170,000 people but we still see between 270 -- 280,000 families into the country and are expelled or tested for covid-19.
1:35 pm
eric: just over 100,000 a month, 751,000 but as you say, family units are not, do you think those are enough? >> i think they are a lot higher because none of these figures of the garlic, none of them are making their way across the border and let me put it in perspective, we know by the numbers over 1.2 million illegals have come into our nation and 21. only a total population of just over 2 million so looking at half the state population have made into the country illegally. eric: and there were questions about how many. they've had to set up tents from about 7000 came in last week. the city officials their claim 1500 migrants who have covid or tested positive were released and put in hotels and released into the community.
1:36 pm
what does that do migrants have covid and the federal government justice, they hand them over to an ngo who supposed to protect them but that doesn't happen. >> and here is the thing from you don't have to live in a border state to have the border problem because we are pushing people into the interior of our nation and this is what i think most americans are getting tired of, the double standard because this week we are hearing about mast mandates, mandatory vaccinations and all the while allowing thousands and thousands of people into the country with not even a test for covid so you can have the double standard. you can't close the door on a huge crisis of the border while at the same time holding american people to a different standard of living. it doesn't make sense if they are truly serious about protecting americans than the very first thing they have to do is close the border. eric: people have to get process
1:37 pm
before that happens. it's not just the migrants, heroic border agent, earlier we had -- he said 80 other border agents have tested positive for covid, 1150 of our brave border agents right now are quarantined because they have covid. here is the situation. >> the vast majority of people trying to get away you get right because we don't have the manpower to cover. we have very few people in the field because we are all babysitting or sick. eric: we are all babysitting or sick. a final reaction to the. >> we put great strain and i applaud the efforts of the men and women on border patrol, they are keeping border states as they can with the resources they have and that's why i've sent a letter for the third time asking to deploy national guard troops down to the border to help
1:38 pm
alleviate some of the stress and under manned areas of our border, they just don't have the resources and there's no reason we shouldn't take it more seriously. protecting americans. eric: have you had a reaction to the letter? >> yes, our government is not the mood to help. they do not see a crisis, there were batter play the game of politics and hold the double standard on americans than actually take action and save lives. eric: but the government is not here to respond to that but clearly there is a dire situation occurring especially with migrants coming in testing positive. thank you for joining us. >> you're welcome, thank you. arthel: doctors in the rest are sounding the alarm about a rise in children testing positive for covid. coming up from will speak to a doctor and a hotspot about what he is seeing in his hospital's

arthel: what is to blame for the surge in kids getting and what can parents do to keep dealt children healthy? let's bring it position in chief and chief academic officer at the children's hospital in new orleans. thank you very much for joining us. what stands out most to you in terms of the number of children and extent of their infection? >> certainly we are seeing more children hospitalized with covid than we had over the past 18 months. the hospital today is 13 children, four in the pediatric intensive care unit. half of these children are under the age of two sets affecting not just adolescents but infants and toddlers as well. hospitalizations are the tip of the iceberg, a tremendous amount of community transmission. thirty days ago on the about 1% of the children we tested in our
1:46 pm
clinics were positive for covid-19 two weeks ago it rose to 7% and today is between 15 -- 20%. arthel: and how -- i'm sorry, those are astounding numbers, how do you treat those children infected with covid? >> we do it the same way our adult colleagues treat those who are seriously ill. they have respiratory manifestations from pneumonia, they require supplemental oxygen and in some cases mechanical ventilation and a variety of medications. arthel: is not more difficult on a tiny long? >> children are maybe more resilient than adults, they tend to be healthier. very few of the children with covid have serious underlying medical conditions. most of them recover and they
1:47 pm
recover completely. we know relatively at last about the late effect of covid particularly the delta variant and with something we are concerned about but in general where the acute symptoms are concerned, they will resolve over time in the vast majority of cases and the children will recover. arthel: that is good to hear because of course parents are worried about potential long-term effects caused by the vaccine but again he said the children mostly fully recover but we don't know long-term effects of the covid infections. what about the vaccines, we know long-term effects? >> the vaccine is approved for adolescents 12 years and older. the data we have from clinical trials that have been done have shown to be very safe among adolescents. of course we don't have five or ten years of experience but
1:48 pm
given any vaccine medication has risk-benefit calculation and certainly i think most of us in the field feel in the case of vaccines for adolescents and young adults and others the benefits of the vaccine in terms of preventing serious cases of covid far outweigh any risks identified today. arthel: understood. the government instituted a statewide indoor mask mandate including schools and children five and older. his prolonged mask wearing dangerous to children and how many continuous hours of mask wearing could cause medical harm to children? >> we don't have any evidence that mask wearing is harmful to children at all.
1:49 pm
certainly all things being equal we'd love to go without masks but given contagiousness in particular of this delta variant of the virus, masks are about the best measure we have. we know masks can reduce likely hood of transmission of the virus and of course social distancing, spacing is another approach but with low vaccination rates we have in louisiana about 37% of eligible occult are vaccinated. about all we've got to mitigate transmission occurring at this time is masks and social distancing so i was fully supportive with the governor's mandatory mask order, both are there to educate kids and we want the kids to go back to in prison but with schools have to keep it safe and that's about the best we can do at this time. arthel: you do a great job in
