6:00 am
>> see you tomorrow. >> dana: we're awaiting a senate hearing on threats to the homeland. christopher wray and alejandro mayorkas are set to testify. he is expected to face tough questions on the border crisis after his visit yesterday to del rio, texas where over 10,000 migrants are living in poor conditions under a bridge. breaking news in the hunt for gabby petito's boyfriend. authorities are turning their attention back to a nature
6:01 am
reserve that brian laundrie visited. good morning, trace. >> trace: good morning everyone. i'm trace gallagher. the hunt for gabby's boyfriend is heating up as we await the completion of a body found in wyoming. investigators believe the remains belong to gabby petito. >> dana: after the f.b.i. completed its search of brian laundrie's parents. >> trace: we're learning more about the august 12th incident in utah that prompted police to pull the couple over. here is what a witness told 911. >> what were they doing? >> we drove by and the gentleman was slapping the girl. >> trace: he was slapping her? >> yes, we stopped. they ran up and down the sidewalk and proceeded to hit her, hopped in the car and they drove off.
6:02 am
>> jonathan serrie is live in north port, florida, with more on this. good morning. >> good morning. in that disturbing 911 call the witness clearly identifies brian as the aggressor. when law enforcement arrived at the scene to investigate gabby took the blame, even apologizing for being so mean to brian. among the responding officers was a female park ranger who says she could tell gabby was in a toxic relationship. in an interview with the newspaper ranger says quote i was imploring with her to re-evaluate the relationship asking her if she was happy in the relationship with him and saying this was an opportunity for her to find another path to make a change in her life. last sunday authorities discovered what they believe to be gabby's remains at a camp site in wyoming. autopsy is scheduled for today. at least 20 federal agents
6:03 am
serjds the home where the couple lived with brian's parents yesterday. they left with some evidence and the ford mustang brian had been driving. another warrant last week for a hard drive provides reasons for probable cause. they include phone and text messages between gabby and her mother during the trip. the search warrant states quote during these conversations there appear to be more and more tension between her and laundrie. the warrant describes an august 27 text from gabby's phone asking her mother can you help stan? i just keep getting his voice mails and missed calls. according to the warrant the reference to stan was regarding her grandfather but per the mother she never calls him stan. this morning police and the f.b.i. are resuming their search of the carlton reserve, a vast naik and alligator infested nature park outside north point where brian's parents told police he went
6:04 am
hiking last tuesday before he disappeared. finally, the attorney representing brian initially had a news conference scheduled for midday today. he abruptly canceled it. he told the "new york post" after speaking with the f.b.i. he decided a news conference was not in his client's best interest. trace. >> trace: jonathan live in florida. thank you. >> dana: for more let's bring in former assistant f.b.i. director chris swecker. why do you think that the lawyer after talking to the f.b.i. decided not to do a press conference today? >> i think out of abundance of caution he saw no value in doing a press conference. he represents the laundrie family, i assume, not just brian but the laundrie family. given this is now a federal crime and there is a proceeding or matter at hand by virtue of the federal search warrant
6:05 am
executed bar rules require that he be very circumspect in his comments. nothing to be gained by holding a press conference at this point. >> dana: my other question on this. yesterday we were told the police in the area had decided to call off the search in this carlton reserve. today they are back there searching. what does that tell you? >> i thought when they called off the search that sort of tell graphed that they did not believe he was in there. that perhaps the family had sent them on a essentially a red herring or misdirection and they decided that he was not there. it may be they have to really, really round this out and make sure that he is not in there. he hasn't done something to himself. that's not the kind of place you can live for an extended period of time. it is awful suspicious he decided to go on a quote hike after she was reported missing
6:06 am
and the gig was up. he had been at home for 10 days, had not reported her missing or anything and refused to talk. so all of that was suspicious. i think the f.b.i. is making sure that he is not in there somewhere. if he is not in there he is on the run. >> trace: i want to pick up on that. the whole concept yesterday of them ending the search and the f.b.i. starting to search the home seemed like it was a coincidence, you end one, start another. did you think it was coincidence or because they have gotten new information and they're dropping one and starting the next? >> they have had some very good discipline about not putting information out to the public at this point that might jeopardize this investigation. make no mistake, this is a homicide investigation now. i get ahead of the autopsy but all these facts and circumstances are piling up now and they are looking for evidence and a lot of different places.
6:07 am
that search warrant was executed, they now have a body, they now have a crime, they now have forensic evidence that may be in that house, might be soil from the crime scene or pollen from the crime scene. something unique to the crime scene or other digital evidence. but the presence of the f.b.i. now shows that it is a confirmation this is indeed a federal crime that happened on federal property in a national forest there and they are in hyper drive trying to gather evidence. >> dana: did they lose time then in terms of the federal investigation? here is a little bit of the search warrant from september 15th. i think you can explain to us that it was about the van, not necessarily about the home? >> it was about the -- there was a search warrant executed for the van on i believe it was the 14th. in the van they found a hard drive. they then had to go back to -- this was a state search warrant.
6:08 am
at this point there is a florida statute having to do with endangered persons and that's what they were using at the time. they searched the van and found the hard drive and got a search warrant based on an affidavit of probable cause to search the hard drive itself to gather up any files that are on the hard drive. later the f.b.i. comes in with a search warrant for the house. so the f.b.i. is basically taking over the investigation. as soon as that body was found they had a federal crime on federal property. now the f.b.i. has swooped and taken over the investigation. >> dana: thank you. we appreciate your time this morning. >> thank you. trace, with the -- when i found out that the press conference was not going to happen today, it made me wonder what all that lawyer had been told. i think that chris explained it well. he must have concluded that it was not in the client's best interest for them to have a press conference today.
6:09 am
all of us want to hear more. >> trace: i want to keep going back to this thing, dana. we'll talk to experts later. the whole concept of whether or not gabby was hit by brian laundrie or whether she was the aggressor because that's a big piece of this puzzle. and the police officer in question in the first part of his report intimates hit and then says the witnesses say she was not hit. why did the confusion happen on the ground in utah and what it means to the overall investigation? that's a key part. >> dana: i was thinking about the people that called 911 after witnessing what they say they saw. they did the right thing so people should be encouraged to continue to report things that they think are wrong. >> trace: was that information then given to the police officer who responded? we'll have that and more. texas governor greg abbott heading to the southern border today after asking president biden yesterday for an emergency declaration over the border crisis.
6:10 am
specifically the thousands of migrants who have now camped out under the international bridge in del rio. let's get to bill with more. >> as of last night, texas governor greg abbott says he hasn't heard a word from the white house or president biden over his request for a federal emergency declaration here. we'll show you why he is asking for it. take a live look from our fox drone overhead. showing this for days. you can see the signs and scope of this camp. sources telling me the population has dipped under just 10,000 people. still a heck of a lot of people who have been baking in the sun for several days now. border patrol sources telling me in the last 24 hours they have only processed 1,772 migrants. that's well short of the goal that border patrol set. they wanted to do 3,000 a day. they are behind on that. take another live look from our ground camera down here and i'll step out of the shot.
6:11 am
you can see the conditions that these folks are living in. it gets incredibly hot during the day here. up to 105 degrees and many of them have used whatever they can find here in the natural elements, sticks, plants, trash bags and they are putting them together to try to construct some sort of shelter to stay out of the sun as they wait and wait and wait to be processed. yesterday dhs secretary mayorkas visited the camp and got a tour and saw what was going on. he has a message for my migrants thinking about trying to cross. take a listen. >> our borders are not open and people should not make the dangerous journey. individuals and families are subject to border restrictions including expulsion. >> but texas senator ted cruz is not buying what mayorkas is selling. he released a statement saying until president biden, border czar vice president harris and
6:12 am
secretary mayorkas take full responsibility and reverse their destruction immigration policies that caused the crisis on the border del rio and other south texas communities with continue to bear the brunt of these political decisions. enough of the fought owe ops. -- fo*et owe ops. -- photo ops. the federal government was here yesterday. it was his texas state troopers who plugged the river crossing and had to do the federal government's job. abbott will be holding a press conference later this afternoon. >> trace: we are live in texas. >> dana: waiting to hear from the f.b.i. director and dhs secretary about national security and what is going the border. >> trace: we'll hear from president biden at the united

6:18 am
>> dana: f.b.i. director christopher wray and mayorkas will be at a senate hearing. joining us now is a member of that committee, wisconsin senator ron johnson. thank you for being here today. i want to talk to you about the border but first if we could talk about afghanistan and the threat that we possibly face. one of the things the administration has insisted the over the horizon capabilities will keep us safe. we know isis-k terrorists they were trying to get didn't happen. they killed an american ally and nine others including
6:19 am
children. here is what they said about that strike initially. >> our over the horizon counter terrorism capability was proven out. they identified the target, they took the target out and they are now in the process of identifying further targets to action. >> the isis targets that were taken out involved two individuals who were significant planners and facilitators for isis-k. >> the fact we've had two successful strike tells you our over the horizon capacity is working. >> we had good intelligence that isis-k was preparing a specific type vehicle and specific location. >> dana: the administration maintains over the horizon capability is sufficient. what say you? >> the only thing those strikes proved is their over the horizon capability was a complete and utter failure. the strikes need to be
6:20 am
investigated. i'm concerned they were initiated because of the chaos that was created by the biden administration policy and tragic loss of 13 american lives. they had to do something. they did that and 10 innocent people lost their lives. >> dana: in addition to all the other things you want to talk to the administration officials today, if you look at this poll fox news poll that just came out 55% of americans think that the threat of taliban control in afghanistan is a threat to the americans. do you expect them to be able to answer that today? >> it is a threat. that's the only answer that they can provide. we are in greater danger. this nation is in peril because of the policy decisions of the biden administration. it is incompetent. these people are incompetent. that's being kind to them. these policy failures, these rolling disasters are caused by their policy decisions. this is what they want. they want open borders.
6:21 am
they wanted the surrender in afghanistan. ignored all relevant advice warning them what would happen. they just pushed forward. i'm reminded what president biden said about joe biden. don't underestimate the way that joe can f things up. and he is. >> dana: let's switch to the border. right there on your screen secretary mayorkas is getting ready to testify in front of your committee and i'm sure that he is going to repeat what he has been saying that the border is closed. our southern border is closed. but we're looking at thousands of migrants who are huddled under a bridge in addition to all the others who got through and in august a record number of 208,000. what do you expect from him on the border today? >> he will try and put lipstick on the pig but he can't. we've been averaging more than 6700 apprehensions per day over the last couple months. what should be bombshell report
6:22 am
was a letter that just recently retired u.s. border patrol chief rodney scott wrote to our committee, to the heads of the committee and leadership of the senate that says secretary mayorkas and other appointees in dhs have provided incorrect information to congressional representatives and the american public. they are lying to us. to say that our border is closed is a lie. it is a fantasy land. they are denying reality. if they are denying reality to the point it's dangerous for this nation. chief scott talks about the national security threat. he says to think that well resourced terrorist networks and criminal organizations and hostile nations are not exploiting this is naive. he said he is sickened by the avoidable and rapid disintegration what was the most effective boshder security in our nation's history under the previous administration. this administration completely incompetent. this is his policy choice. this is a choice of the democrats.
6:23 am
they wanted open borders, now we have them. it is a huge national security and homeland security threat. >> dana: thank you for the preview from the republican side today. the hearing is about to get underway. thank you for your time. we'll follow it. >> have a good day. >> trace: fox news alert now. our team on the ground in afghanistan gets a tour of the kabul airport and an exclusive look at the u.s. military equipment left behind after the hasty exit last month. trey yengst is live in kabul. trey. >> trace, good morning. in afghanistan you see american military equipment overwhere. we're talking about billions of dollars worth of equipment left behind. some was destroyed, some wasn't. most of the american and afghan military equipment at kabul's airport was destroyed by u.s. forces before they left kabul. not the case for the rest of afghanistan. there are thousands of humvees, aircraft and other critical pieces of military equipment
6:24 am
left behind. now in the hands of the taliban. taliban intelligence officers courts us to kabul's international airport. afghan pilots ran away with helicopters. when we got control thanks to god they brought them back. the taliban now controls thousands of american made humvees, weapons and aircraft. although in the afghan capital u.s. troops did destroy an estimated 170 pieces of equipment before leaving. right now the taliban is explaining that american forces destroyed all of the displays and internal mechanisms inside the blackhawks before they left the airport. on the civilian sieftd airport domestic flights are starting to land. taliban tells fox news operations are running around 90% and international commercial flights could start next week as repairs are finished. >> in the islamic emotion rather of afghanistan all international airports are working now. the most destroyed airport was
6:25 am
kabul international airport by the americans. >> security remains the primary concern at kabul's airport. over the past several days there have been a number of isis bombing attacks against afghanistan against taliban targets. >> trace: trey yengst live on the ground in afghanistan. thank you. >> dana: search for gabby petito's boyfriend continues. texas now asking for federal help at the border crisis. is the white house doing enough to stop the massive surge of migrants? texas lieutenant governor dan patrick joins us next. >> the biden administration refuses to even pretend as though there is a crisis. there is chaos down there especially in the del rio sector.

6:31 am
the carlton reserve in florida. the coroner in teton county wyoming expected to do an autopsy today in the body found in grand teton national park. it matches the description of gabby petito. we find laura engel outside of the coroner's office in jackson, wyoming. hi, laura. >> we've been told by the teton county coroner's office once they get the forensic pathologist in place coming from out of town here in jackson the autopsy will get underway. the office isn't open yet and we expect it to happen soon. as her family waits for answers some experts in the field are weighing in what the medical examiners will be looking for. >> how was this body depos ited? was she placed under rubble? were there cut trees that were placed over her like brush piles, this sort of thing. >> the injuries to her and to her clothing, whether her jewelry had been removed, did
6:32 am
it look like a fight had ensued. >> here in wyoming the criminal investigation into what happened in the days leading up to gabby's disappearance on her road trip moves on with rapid developments. newly released search warrant to obtain petito's hard drive and there was an odd text that read can you help with stan? i just keep getting voice mails and missed calls. now this text that came in on august 27th and was the last communication from gabby's cell was concerning to her mom because stan is gabby's grandfather but gabby never referred to him by his first name. a 911 call that led to the traffic stop of gabby's van with her boyfriend brian laundrie in utah was released giving more detail. >> what were they doing? >> we drove by and the gentleman was slapping the girl. >> he was slapping her?
6:33 am
>> yes, then we stopped. they ran up and down the sidewalk, he proceeded to hit her, hopped in the car and they drove off. >> okay. so we went back and listened to the police body cam audio of that traffic stop in utah and while many have wondered if the officers talked with the witness who called 911 on the audio, one officer says he did and is heard telling another officer the witness told him he saw brian shove gabby, not hit her. so a couple of discrepancies that we're working through. meanwhile back here we're waiting for the coroner's office to open and bring you details from him. >> dana: thank you. >> trace: texas governor greg abbott requesting a federal emergency declaration from president biden as the surge of mostly haitian migrants overwhelms the southern border. homeland security mayorkas visited del rio, texas where
6:34 am
thousands of migrants are camped out under a bridge in squalliad conditions. >> our borders are not own and people should not make the dangerous journey. if you come to the united states illegally, you will be returned. your journey will not succeed. >> trace: let's bring in dan patrick, lieutenant governor of texas. good to see you this morning. one of the big talking points for the biden administration they keep saying we're moving these migrants. moving them but we don't know exactly where. some are being flown out. some are being bused to other cities in the united states. and some are being released all together because of asylum claims. are you getting more specific information as to where these people are going? >> yeah, they're to the telling anyone the truths. number one they said they were sending in 500 agents to help. border patrol has admitted without texas help we couldn't have -- that hasn't happened yet because they have a hard
6:35 am
time getting agents. number two they say they are shipping them back to haiti. only single men and girls. 2,000 single men, 500 single girls. the other 8 or 9,000 they'll ship them to a city near you. i asked the reality of these questions. when they drop them off somewhere they have no citizenship, they won't qualify for a jobs. kids three grades behind in school. what are they going to do when ice drops them on the corner? this is a total disas tear. when he says the border is closed that's just a lie. and a joke. while i was at the bridge yesterday with lawrence jones of fox and meanwhile 2,000 people are crossing the border in mcallen? turn around and give me a break. here is what i said yesterday and laid this policy out and some people will criticize it. texas is already doing the job. i would like to hire all 8,000 or 9,000 border agents. give them a $10,000 raise and let them come to work for us
6:36 am
and we'll form a border force. biden won't have anybody to put down there and ask us to help we'll say yes. we'll guard the border. you stay out of it. that's the lieutenant governor, some big plan. that's not real. two years ago when i met with president trump in mcallen i said look mr. president. if congress won't give you the money to build the wall we will. i was criticized that's ridiculous. never happen. guess what? we allocated $2 billion to build the wall. we can take over the border patrol and they would rather work for us than joebds. the camp down there is the biden refugee camp that you would expect to see halfway around the world. a total disaster and not telling the american people the truth and we're fed up with it. >> trace: one of the reasons that president biden dismantled a lot of former president trump's policies said they were inhumane and were cruel and inhumane. look at what's going on right now. this is the epitome of cruel and inhumane what's happening
6:37 am
right there. >> 108 degrees yesterday in the shade. toilets stink like heaven. food is slight. it looks like a refugee camp from somewhere in the world. everything that biden touches is mystery. in afghanistan mystery for those people that couldn't get into the airport. misery for the families that lost 13 soldiers. misery for the people stuck under the bridge in 108 degree heat but mostly misery for american citizens in texas and around american crowding our healthcare system, our education system. bringing crime and drugs. i'm sorry, the border is wide open. when they tell you it's closed it is a joke. they won't admit it is a crisis. president biden, someone on your team is watching. why don't you come down to the border and see for yourself? if you think that's okay, the next coast guard plane that leaves put on 400 or 500 and send them to delaware where you were on the beach this weekend and see what the citizens of delaware think.
6:38 am
you won't even come down here. you won't dare do that. bring some to delaware and see what you think. >> trace: i want your take on secretary mayorkas saying it is not a crisis. it is not a crisis. this is a challenge. it is a heck of a khaej. -- challenge. >> he can't say it's a crisis. if you admit there is a problem you have to solve it. they haven't tested anyone. the president wants to vaccinate anyone in america but these 10,000 aren't vaccinated. they would have to admit 20 or 25% are positive and they have no place to separate them. bury their head in the hand. they put law enforcement as risk there. what if the 12,000 decided to revolt and run. we have 1,000 in the sector mainly to put a perimeter around them. they put our law enforcement in jeopardy and citizens in jeopardy and we in texas are tired of it. we'll hire the border patrol and take it over, mr. president. you don't care and you aren't
6:39 am
doing your job. >> trace: lieutenant governor, thank you for coming on. we appreciate it. >> dana: he made great points. yesterday peter doocy asked the press secretary where the vice president is. watch this. >> where is the vice president on any of this? isn't she supposed to be addressing the root causes of migration? >> absolutely. she has been addressing the root causes of migration by working with countries in the region to have the assistance they need and reduce the number of people coming trying to make the jurn eefs across the border. we've seen reductions in some numbers. that doesn't change the fact this is a challenging situation in del rio. >> dana: trace, it could be she is working all the time on root causes but you don't see evidence of that. no meetings or press conferences or anything like that. >> trace: root causes in places like haiti. reporters are talking to haitian immigrants. they're coming from brazil and chile.
6:40 am
nbc 20,000 in columbia ready to make the journey. not people fleeing from the earthquake in haiti. people who have been in brazil and chile for four or five years and decided to make their way north. >> dana: president biden set to address world leaders minutes from now at his first speech in the united nations general assembly. what comes next for the origins in the russia probe? karl rove on that coming up. >> the idea that democrat leaders in the clinton campaign could pay a lawyer to lie to the f.b.i. to try to interfere in a presidential election campaign. let's be clear. they were trying to rig a presidential campaign. that's why they customize your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. [ nautical horn blows ] i mean just because you look like someone else doesn't mean you eat off the floor,

>> trace: san francisco mayor breed responding to criticism after she was caught on camera dancing at a crowded nightclub without a mask in defiance of the city's indoor mask mandate. the mayor says she didn't need a mask because she was eating and drinking during the event. what? >> we don't need the fun police to try to micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn't be doing. we know what we need to do to protect ourselves. i got up and started dancing because i was feeling the spirit. and i wasn't thinking about a mask. >> trace: okay. >> dana: you remember the situation in chicago and we had that wedding in washington, d.c. amongst many other elected officials telling people they have to wear a mask but not doing it themselves. >> trace: yeah. that's exactly right. you look at the grammys and they talked about the whole concept of the people on the left saying you have to wear a mask unless it's us we don't really want to wear a mask.
6:47 am
>> dana: terrible. president biden set to address world leaders next hour in his first speech to the united nations general assembly coming as he faces multiple foreign policies crises from the messy exit and botched drone strike in afghanistan and angering france because of a nuclear sub deal with australia. karl rove. with the new joe biden administration america is back. what does it mean am is back? is america back in america or somewhere else? we don't know. it's an understated way of complaining about the biden administration, karl. >> absolutely. afghanistan you got, you have the aussie sub. you left out the travel ban rules for europe which got changed without a heads-up to the brits who left them out their dangling and today there will be another thing to create controversy. the president has arranged to have a meeting with world
6:48 am
leaders on what more can we all do to confront the pandemic, particularly getting vaccinations into places like africa that where only 6% of the population is vaccinated and the rest of the people in the meeting, a lot will be saying wait a minute, you've just reduced the vaccine supply by going for a third shot for americans. when are you going to do your part? and so the president has a little bit of a problem here. a lot of people believed him when he said america is back and promised multi-lateral consultations and it just hasn't happened. >> dana: he plans to talk about climate change. we know from experience the media will definitely look favorably upon those type of headlines. is it enough to con strins the rest of the world that america is back? >> he has some fundamental problems here. he angered a lot of people. some i understand. the australians cut a bad deal with the french to supply them a fleet of submarines by the time they got built would be obsolete and easily detectable
6:49 am
by the chinese and limited range. the australians did the right thing and came to the united states and great britain and said could we cooperate with you in your submarine programs that is nuclear, quieter, simpler, submarines with more distance they can travel but they angered the french. it seems to me like they could have found a way to broach the subject at an appropriate time and let them know it would happen instead of just making them irritated. afghanistan is a problem. travel ban is a problem. the vaccine issue will be a problem. it all stems from the ham handed way in which the biden foreign policy apparatus has treated our allies. >> dana: another story the russia collusion issue used to be the democrats favorite topic. i don't know if it will be the case much longer. andy mccarthy wrote this. democratic plot to steal the white house, anatomy of a political dirty trick and
6:50 am
included the flow chart. andy mccarthy helpfully points out that where all this staertd. did it start with hillary clinton who pays the law firm who pays fusion gps who goes to christopher steele and the f.b.i. and media getting down to sussman, the one who was indicted by the f.b.i. basically informing the f.b.i. about this issue. in some ways you can imagine hillary clinton is going to have to break her silence on this. >> absolutely. in the indictment it turns out sussman is meeting with the f.b.i. saying i have no advertise with anybody. i'm a good citizen coming forward but reporting back to the communications director and research director of the clinton campaign on his conversations with the f.b.i. interesting when robby mook and others are brought forward and to have say here is what sussman told us and what we did with that information? this will be ugly and we now know this isn't the only part
6:51 am
of the clinton campaign that helped bring about this fraud but it is an important element of it because sussman is the guy who gets to go tell the f.b.i. and then the f.b.i. says this is very serious, we'll look into it. and then he goes back and immediately gets reported to the press that trump is under investigation by the f.b.i. which is the purpose of his visit with the f.b.i. >> dana: right. very interesting. everyone should check out the "new york post" piece by andy mccarthy. >> really well done. >> trace: progressives with a flip-flop on evictions now pushing for some tenants to get the boot. what's behind this surprising move? the search for gabby petito's missing boyfriend resumes after the f.b.i. searched the home where she lived with the

6:57 am
hill to protect vulnerable renters from eviction. there is one group supporting the landlord who will evict renters who do not get the vaccine. hillary vaughn with more. >> if you can't pay your rent that's okay. if you want to keep your health choices private, you shouldn't have a place to stay. at least that's what some progressive groups are supporting after a florida landlord came out and said he is not allowing existing tenants to renew their lease or allowing new tenants to move in unless they show proof of vaccination status. he has 1200 rental units in florida. he told the "washington post" this, quote, i have the obligation and the duty to protect my workers and tenants. you don't want to get vaccinated, you have to move and if you don't move, one must move forward with eviction. that put the landlord at odds with the governor of florida ron desantis who enforced a
6:58 am
vaccine passport ban which means alvarez could be hit with a $5,000 fine every time he asks tenants or prospective tenants to show proof of vaccination tenants. even though people protested people getting evicted but progressive political organization tweeted this to its followers backing the landlord's right to evict. retweet if you support the landlord's move. senator warren and bush will bring the federal eviction moratorium back to life by keeping renters safe act empower hhs and cdc to decide if an eviction would lead to the spread of a disease and stop tenants from keeping kicked out if they don't pay. we'll ask the senator and congresswoman today if it also applies to kicking people out that are not vaccinated. >> it's a good question.
6:59 am
live on the hill. thank you. >> dana: it's interesting the "wall street journal" wrote about this today basically saying how renters made out in the pandemic. i'm not saying that rent shouldn't have been covered for these people but what happened is there was so much aid given that it shows renters credit scores increased by 16 points during the pandemic compared to 10 points for homeowners with mortgages. what happened, people that could afford their rent were using that rental relief not having to pay rent in order to pay things like student loans. the supreme court did strike down president biden's executive order and looks to me it probably is the fairest thing. >> trace: i talked to a guy who owned a couple of properties a couple months ago and he said neither of his tenants were paying and he is when did the landlords become the villains and apartment renters? he didn't get the whole setup. >> dana: hillary vaughn was reporting is also very interesting. when do the progressives
7:00 am
actually want to help renters and this issue of a vaccination? i'm for people being vaccinated but i don't understand why a landlord needs to make sure somebody in their apartment in their own home would be vaccinated. >> trace: very true. >> dana: there is a fox news alert now. a live look at the united nations general assembly. we're moments away from hearing from president biden. this is his first address there since taking office and the speech comes as the president faces multiple crises on his watch including the botched afghanistan withdrawal, a surge in migrants at our southern border, covid pandemic as well as our ally the australians being angry. we'll bring you live to the speech as soon as it begins. trace, one of the things about a speech like the one biden is about to give is that there is never any applause usually. so it is very often be very silent in there. that should not necessarily surprise anybody, trace.
7:01 am
>> trace: it is important when you go down the list, karl rove made a couple of good points. when you go down the list and talk about afghanistan and the problems at the border, you talk about this submarine deal with australia and new zealand, you can see the president walking up to the podium now. you talk about these deals. he has a lot on his plate and you wonder how much of it he will blame on the previous president. >> dana: here is president biden. >> joseph biden junior president of the united states of america and to invite him to address the assembly. >> president biden: mr. president, mr. secretary general and fellow delegates. all those who dedicate themselves to this noble mission of this association. it's my honor speaking for the first time as president of the united states. we meet this year in a moment of intermingled with great pain
7:02 am
and extraordinary possibility. we've lost so much to this devastating pandemic that continues to claim lives around the world and impact so much on our existence. we're mourning more than 4.5 million people. people of every nation, from every background, each death is an individual heartbreak. but our shared grief is a reminder that our collective future will hinge on our ability to recognize our common humanity and to act together. ladies and gentlemen, this is the clear and urgent choice that we face here at the dawning of what must be a decisive decade for our world. a decade that will quite literally determine our futures. as a global community, we're
7:03 am
challenged by urgent and looming crises if we can seize these opportunities. will we work together to save lives, defeat covid-19 everywhere? take the necessary steps to prepare ourselves for the next pandemic, for there will be another one. or will we fail to harness the tools at our disposal as the more virulent and dangerous variants take hold? will we meet the threat of challenging climate we're all feeling already ravaging every part of our world with extreme weather? or will we suffer the merciless march of every worsening droughts and floods, more intense fires and hurricanes, longer heat waves and rising seas? will we affirm and uphold the human dignity and human rights
7:04 am
under which nations and common cause more than seven decades ago formed this institution? will we apply the core ten either of international system including the u.n. charter and the universal declaration of human rights as we seek to shape the emergence of new technologies and deter new threats? or will we allow these universal principles to be trampled and twisted in the pursuit of naked political power? and in my view how we answer these questions and this moment, whether we choose to fight for our shared future or not, will reverberate for generations yet to come. simply put, we stand in my view at an inflection point in history. i'm here today to share with you how the united states intends to work with partners and allies to answer these
7:05 am
questions and the commitment of my new administration to help lead the world toward a more peaceful, prosperous future for all people. instead of continuing to fight the wars of the past, we are fixing our eyes on devoting our resources to the challenges that hold the keys to our collective future. ending this pandemic, addressing the climate crisis, managing the shifts in global power dynamics, shaping the roles of the world on vital issues like trade, cyber, and emerging technologies and facing the threat of terrorism as it stands today. we've ended 20 years of conflict in afghanistan and as we close this period of relentless war, we're opening a new era of relentless diplomacy and development aid to invest in new ways of lifting people
7:06 am
up around the world. of renewing and defending democracy, approving that no matter how challenging or how complex the problems are going to face, government by and for the people is still the best way to deliver for all of our people. as the united states turns our focus to the priorities and the regions of the world like ind dough pacific that -- we'll have cooperation through institutions like the united nations to amplify our speed and progress to deal with the global challenges. a fundamental truth of the 21st century, within each of our countries and as a global community, that our own success is bound up in others succeeding as well. so deliver for our own people
7:07 am
we must also engage deeply with the rest of the world. to insure that our own few uture must work toward with partners toward a shared future. our security, our prosperity, and our very freedoms are interconnected in my view as never before. and so i believe we must work together as never before. over the last eight months, i prioritized rebuilding our alliances, revitalizing our partnerships and recognizing there are essential and central to america's enduring security and prosperity. we have reaffirmed our sacred nato alliance to article 5 commitment. we're working with our allies toward a new strategic concept that will help our alliance better take on evolving threats of today and tomorrow.
7:08 am
we renewed our engagement with the european union, a fundamental partner in tackling the full range of significant issues facing our world today. we elevated the quad partnership among australia, india, japan, united states to take on challenges ranging from health security to climate to emerging technologies. we're engaging with regional institutions to the african union and the organization of american states to focus on people's urgent needs for better health and better economic outcomes. we're back at the table in international forums especially the united nations to focus attention and to spur global action on shared challenges. we are reengaged at the world health organization and working
7:09 am
in close partnership with covax to deliver lifesaving vaccines around the world. we rejoined the paris climate agreement and are running to retake a seat in the human rights council next year at the u.n. and as the united states seeks to rally the world to action, we will lead not just as an example of our power but god willing with the power of our example. make no mistake, the united states will continue to defend ourselves, our allies, and our interests against attack including terrorist threats as we prepare to use force if any is necessary. but to defend our vital u.s. national interest including against ongoing and imminent threats. the mission must be clear and achievable. undertaking with informed consent of the american people. and whenever possible, in partnership with our allies. u.s. military power must be our
7:10 am
tool of last resort, not our first and should not be used as an answer to every problem we see around the world. indeed, today many of our greatest concerns cannot be solved or even addressed through the force of arms. bombs and bullets cannot defend against covid-19 or its future variants. to fight this pandemic we need a collective act of signs and political will. we need to act now to get shots in arms as fast as possible and x panned access to action again, tests, treatments, to save lives around the world. and for the future, we need to create a new mechanism to finance global health security. that builds on our existing development assistance and global health -- and a global
7:11 am
health direct council that is armed with the tools we need to monitor and identify emerging pandemics so that we can take immediate action. already the united states has put more than $15 billion toward global covid response. we've shipped more than 160 million doses of covid-19 vaccine to other countries. this includes 130 million doses from our own supply and the first of a half billion doses of pfizer vaccine we purchased to donate through covax. planes carrying vaccines from the united states have already landed in 100 countries bringing people all over the world a little dose of hope as one american nurse termed it to me. a dose of hope direct from the american people and importantly
7:12 am
no strings attached. and tomorrow at the u.s. hosted global 19 -- covid-19 summit i will be announcing additional commitments as we seek to advance the fight against covid-19 and hold ourselves accountable around specific targets on three key challenges, saving lives now, vaccinating the world, and building back better. this year has also brought widespread death and devastation from the borderless climate crisis. the extreme weather events that we have seen in every part of the world and you all know it and feel it, represent what the secretary general has rightly called code red for humanity. the scientists and experts are telling us we're fast approaching a point of no return in the literal sense.
7:13 am
to keep within our reach the vital goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees selus every nation needs to bring their ideas to the table when we meet in glasgow. in april, i announced the united states ambitious new goal under the paris agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the united states by 50 to 52% below 2005 levels by 2030. as we work toward achieving a clean energy economy with net zero emissions by 2050. my administration is working closely with our congress to make critical investments in green infrastructure and electric vehicles, to help us lock in progress at home toward
7:14 am
our climate goals. and the best part is making these ambitious investment isn't good climate poll syracuse it's chance for each of our countries to invest in ourselves and our own future. it's an enormous opportunity to create good-paying jobs for workers in each of our countries and to spur long-term economic growth that will improve the quality of life for all of our people. we also have to support the countries and people that will be hit the hardest and that have the fewest resources to help them adapt. in april, i announced the united states will double our public international financing to help developing nations tackle the climate crisis and today i'm proud to announce that we'll work with the congress to double that number again, including for adaptation efforts. it will make the united states the leader in public climate finance.
7:15 am
with our added support together with increased private capital and other -- from other donors, we'll be able to meet the goal of mobilizing 100 billion dollars to support climate action in developing nations. as we deal with these crises we're also encountering a new era, an era of new technologies and possibilities that have potential to release and reshape every aspect of human existence. it's up to all of us to determine whether these technologies are a force to empower people or to deepen repression. as new technologies continue to evolve, we'll work together with our democratic partners to insure that new advances in areas from biotechnology to quantum computing and 5g artificial intelligence and more are used to lift people
7:16 am
up, to solve problems and advance human freedom, not to suppress dissent or target minority communities. and the united states intends to make a profound investment in research and innovation, working with countries at all stages of economic development to develop new tools and technologies to help us tackle the challenges of this second quarter of the 21st century and beyond. we're hardening our critical infrastructure against siesh attacks, disrupting ransomeware networks and working to establish clear rules of the road for all nations as it relates to cyberspace. we'll reserve the right to respond decisively to cyberattacks that threaten our people, our allies or our interests. we will pursue new rules of global trade and economic growth to strive to level the playing field so it is not
7:17 am
artificially tipped in favor of any one country at the expense of others. and every nation has a right and an opportunity to compete fairly. we will strive to insure the basic labor rights, environmental safeguards and intellectual property are protected. and that the benefits of globalization are shared broadly throughout all our societies. we'll continue to uphold the longstanding rules and norms that have formed the guardrails of international engagement for decades. that have been essential to the development of nations around the world. bedrock commitments like freedom of navigation, adherence to international laws and treaties, support for arms control measures and reduce the risk and enhanced transparency. our approach is firmly grounded and fully consistent with the united states mission and the
7:18 am
values we've agreed to when we drafted this charter. these are commitments we all made and that we are all bound to uphold. as we strive to deal with these urgent challenges, whether they're longstanding or newly emerging we must also deal with one another. all the major powers of the world have a duty in my view to carefully manage their relationships so they do not tip from responsible competition to conflict. the united states will compete and we'll compete vigorously and lead with our values and our strength. we'll stand up for our allies and our friends and oppose attempts by stronger countries to dominate weaker ones whether through changes to territory by force, economic coercion, technical exploitation or disinformation but we are not
7:19 am
seeking -- say it again, we are not seeking a new cold war or a world divided in the rigid block. the united states is ready to work with any nation that steps up and pursues peaceful resolution to shared challenges, even if we have intense disagreements in other areas. because we'll all suffer the consequences of our failure if we do not come together to address the urgent threats like covid-19 and climate change or enduring threats like nuclear proliferation. the united states remains commited to preventing iran from gaining a nuclear weapon. we're working with the p5 plus 1 to engage iran diplomatically and seek a return for jcpoa and return to full compliance with
7:20 am
iran does the same. similarly, we seek serious and sustained diplomacy to pursue the complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. we seek concrete progress for an available plan with tangible commitments that would increase stability on the peninsula and in the region as well as improve the lives in the democratic people's republic of korea. we must also remain vigilant to the threat of terrorism poses to all our nations from emanating from distant regions of the world or in our own backyards. we know the bitter string of terrorism, the bitter sting of terrorism is real, we've almost all experienced it. last month we lost 13 american heroes and almost 200 innocent afghan civilians in a s terrorist attack at the kabul
7:21 am
airport. those who commit acts of terrorism against us will continue to find a determined enemy in the united states. the world today is not the world of 2001, though. the united states is not the same country we were when we were attacked on 9/11 20 years ago. today we're better equipped to detect and prevent terrorist threats and we're more resilient in our ability to repel them and to respond. we know how to build effective partnerships to dismantle terrorist networks by targeting their finances, support systems and countering their propaganda and preventing their travel as well as disrupting imminent attacks. we'll meet terrorist threats that arise today and in the future with a full range of tools available to us including working in cooperation with local partners so that we need not be so reliant on
7:22 am
large-scale military deployments. one of the most important ways we can reduce violence and enhance security is by seeking to improve the lives of the people all over the world who see that their governments are not serving their needs. corruption fuels inequality, siphons off a nation's resources, spreads across borders and generates human suffering. there is nothing less than a national security threat to the 21st century. around the world, we're increasingly seeing citizens demonstrate their discontent and seeing the wealthy grow richer and richer tairking payoffs and bribes, operating above the law, while the vast majority of the people struggle to find a job or put food on the table, or to get their businesses off the ground, or simply send their children to school.
7:23 am
people have taken to the streets in every region to demand that their governments address people's basic needs, give everyone a fair shot succeed and protect their god given rights and in that chorus of voices across languages and continents we hear a common cry, a cry for dignity, simple dignity. as leaders, it is our duty to answer that call, not to silence it. the united states is committed to using our resources and international platform to support these voices, listen to them, partner with them to find ways to respond and advance human dignity around the world. for example, there is an enormous need for infrastructure in developing countries. with infrastructure that is low
7:24 am
quality or feeds corruption or exacerbates environmental degradation will contribute to greater challenges for countries over time. done the right way, however, with transparent sustainable investment in projects that respond to the country's needs and engage their local workers to maintain high labor and environmental standards infrastructure can be a strong foundation to allow societies and low and middle income countries to grow and to prosper. that's the idea behind the build back better world. together with the private sector and g-7 partners we aim to mobilize hundreds of billions of dollars in infrastructure investment. we also will continue to be the world's largest contributor to humanitarian assistance bringing food, water, shelter
7:25 am
and lifesaving aid to millions of people in need. when an earthquake strikes and typhoon rages or disaster anywhere in the world, the united states shows up. we'll be ready to help. at a time when nearly 1 in 3 people globally do not have access to adequate food, just last year, the united states is committing to rally our partners to address immediate malnutrition and to insure that we can sustainably feed the world for the decades to come. to that end, the united states is making a $10 billion commitment to end hunger and invest in food systems at home and abroad. since 2000, the united states government has provided more than $140 billion to advance health and strengthen health systems and we will continue our leadership to drive these
7:26 am
vital investments to make people's lives better every single day. just give them a little breathing room. as we strive to make lives better we must work with renewed purpose and end the conflicts driving so much pain and hurt around the world. must redouble our diplomacy and commit to political negotiations, not violence, as a tool of first resort. to manage tensions around the world. must seek a future of greater peace and security for all people of the middle east, a commitment of the united states security without question and our support for an independent jewish state is unequivocal but i continue to believe that a two-state solution is the best way to insure israel's future as a jewish democratic state living in peace alongside a viable sovereign and democratic palestinian state. we're a long way from that goal at this moment.
7:27 am
we must never allow ourselves to give up on the possibility of progress. we cannot give up on solving raging civil conflicts including in ethiopia and yemen. where fighting between warring parties is driving famine, horrific violence, human rights violations against civilians including the use of rape as a weapon of war. we'll continue to work with the international community to stress for peace and bring an end to this suffering. as we pursue diplomacy across the board, the united states will champion the democratic values that go to the very heart of who we are as a nation and a people, freedom, equality, opportunity, and a belief in the universal rights of all people. it is stamped into our dna as a
7:28 am
nation and critically it is stamped into the dna of this institution, the united states. we sometimes forget a quote the opening words of the universal declaration of human rights, quote, the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world. the founding ethos of the united nations places the rights of individuals at the center of our system. and that clarity and vision must not be ignored or misinterpreted. the united states will do our part but we are more successful and more impactful if all of our nations are working toward the full mission to which we're called. that's why more than 100
7:29 am
nations united around the shared statement the security council adopted a resolution outlining how we'll support the people of afghanistan moving forward, laying out the expectations to which we'll hold the taliban when it comes to respecting universal human rights. we all must advocate for women, the rights of women and girls to use their full talents to contribute economically, politically and socially and pursue their dreams free of violence and intimidation, from central america to the middle east to africa to afghanistan, wherever it appears in the world. we almost call out and condemn the targeting and oppression of racial, ethnic and religious minorities. whether it occurs in china, northern ethiopia or anywhere in the world. we all must defend the rights
7:30 am
of lgbtqi individuals so they can live and love openly without fear whether it's chechnya or cameroon or anywhere. as we steer our nations toward this inflection point and work to meet today's fast-moving cross-cutting challenges let me be clear. i am not agnostic about the future we want for the world. the future will belong to those who embrace human dignity, not trample it. the future will belong to those who unleash the potential of their people, not those who stifle it. the future belongs to those who give their people the ability to breathe free not those who seek the suffocate their people with an iron hand. the authoritarianism of the world may seek to talk about the end of the age of democracy but they're wrong.
7:31 am
the truth is the democratic world is everywhere. it lives in the anti-corruption activists, the human rights defenders, the journalists, the peace protestors, on the front lines of the struggle in belarus, berma and everywhere in today in the brave women of sudan who with stood violence and oppression to push a dictator from power and work to defend their democratic progress. it lives in with a mandate to fight graft to build a more inclusive economy. it lives in the young people of zambia who harnessed the power of their vote for the first time turning out in record numbers to denounce corruption and chart a new path for their country. and while no democracy is perfect, including the united states, we'll continue to struggle to live up to the
7:32 am
highest ideals to heal our divisions, that we face down violence and insurrection, democracy remains the best tool we have to unleash our full human potential. my fellow leaders, this is a moment where we must prove ourselves the equals of those who come before us, who envision and values and determine faith in our collective future built our united nations, broke the cycle of war and destruction, and laid the foundations for more than seven decades of relative peace and growing global prosperity. now we must again come together to affirm the inherent humanity that unites us is much greater than any outward divisions or disagreements. we must choose to do more than we think we can do alone so that we'll accomplish what we must together.
7:33 am
and ending this pandemic and making sure we're better prepared for the next one. staving off climate change and increasing our resilience to the impacts we already are seeing. insuring a future technologies can empower human potential. not a source of further strife and oppression. that will determine what the world looks like for our children and grandchildren and what they'll inherit. we can only meet them by looking to the future. i stand here today for the first time in 20 years the united states not at war. we've turned the page. all the unmatched strength, energy and commitment will and resources of our nation are now fully and squairl focused on what's ahead of us, not what was behind.
7:34 am
i know this, as we look ahead we will lead. we will lead on all the greatest challenges of our time from covid to climate, peace and security, human dignity and human rights but we will not go it alone. we'll lead together with our allies and partners and in cooperation with all those who believe as we do, that this is within our power to meet these challenges, to build a future, it lifts all of our people and preserves this planet. but none of this inevitable. it is a choice. i can tell you where america stands. we will choose to build a better future. we, you and i, we have the will and capacity to make it better. ladies and gentlemen, we cannot afford to waste anymore time. let's get to work. let's make our better future now.
7:35 am
we can do this. it's within our power and capacity. thank you. and god bless you all. [applause] dana: president biden wrapping up a 35-minute speech on his first speech to the united nations general assembly as president. i want to bring in marc thiessen and trace gallagher is still with us. marc, one of the things i noticed right away he talked about covid, to climate and covid again and then climate. moved on to talk about human rights, terrorism, a mention about north korea, china and iran, especially iran on the nuclear weapons issue. says they will not get a nuclear weapon and at the end he said i'm the first president in 20 years to speak to you when our country snot at war. your thoughts on all that. >> we've talked about this before. i've written speeches for president bush and one of the things we've talked about is
7:36 am
how it really is important for a speech to be effective the words need to match the actions. if there is a disconnect between the words and actions it is ridiculous. the difference between his words and actions. he talked about a new era of relentless diplomacy. if he is looking at the audience he is looking at boris johnson, prime minister of great britain whose phone call he didn't answer for 36 hours whoo kabul was falling. a guy who the sunday time of london calls him sleepy joe and said we'd be better off with donald trump. the leaders of france, germany and canada and nato allies who pleaded with him to extend the deadline to get the national out and he refused forcing them to leave their citizens behind enemy lines because they couldn't stay beyond the u.s. commitment. the president of france who just recalled his ambassador from the united states for the first time since our alliance
7:37 am
was forged in 1778. he is looking at our adversaries and looking at china whose leader is taunting taiwan using our afghan withdrawal as proof that we won't come to defend them. looking at north korea and russia and all these other countries. north korea that launched the missile on the anniversary of 9/11 and the day the taliban inaugurated its new government. when you say things, words matter. president's words matter. if they aren't backed by action and not the same with the actions he is taking they become a joke. >> trace: i think i want to pick up on that. a couple things i noticed he did talk about putting a lot of people's feet to the fire. the taliban will have to live up to their human rights. iran will have to go nuclear free. china's feet to the fire. we've seen none of that so far and yet that seems to be the pitch for the future.
7:38 am
>> yeah, i agree. i'm here. he talked about improving the lives of people across the world. how can the president say that when he just confined the people of afghanistan to unspeakable tyranny? no dignity for the people of afghanistan. sending kids to school. now about afghan girls where the taliban isn't allowing them to go back to school? the cry of dignity and our responsibility to answer the call. he pushed them into tyranny. it is frustrating to watch a president mouth words that are different from his actions on the global stage. >> dana: this will get headlines. he said he will work with congress to double the public financing for international development on climate in developing countries.
7:39 am
and you know, there might be a good use for that, right? but we are about to see the democrats try to pass a $3.5 trillion bill here in the united states. how much will be left over to these -- to do these projects around the world? >> and they can't even seem to come to agreement on it. they are literally in -- have a gun to their own heads. they can't pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill the president agreed to and the senate agreed to in a bipartisan fashion. they can't get it out of the house because they hold it hostage for a dl* 3.5 trillion bill that will never get passed. if you look at the biden presidency we go from disaster to disaster to disaster. august was the worst month of his presidency. in the september we have the border crisis, we have the french pulling their ambassador and all these terrible things happening and he can't get his
7:40 am
agenda through on capitol hill. >> dana: i noticed that in a column you have coming out august was bad but could september actually end up being worse? hard to match that. we thank you for your time and watching the speech with us, marc and all your comments. thank you. >> trace: thank you, marc. meantime the f.b.i. resuming the search for gabby petito's boyfriend after his t raid on his florida home. today's search is in a massive florida wilderness area infested with gators and snakes. carley shimkus is outside the laundrie family home in north port, florida. >> trace, good morning. yesterday the north port police made the surprise announcement they were calling off the search for brian laundrie at the carlton reserve. that's where laundrie reportedly visited one week ago today before going missing. and this morning north port police made another announcement, the search for him is back on.
7:41 am
this time they'll be moving in from the venice side which is an entrance west of where they were originally searching. but yesterday all of the action was right here at the laundrie family home some 20 f.b.i. agents swarmed the property. they were seen carrying out what appeared to be boxes of evidence and also towed a silver mustang, brian's parents say he drove to that reserve before going missing. we were expected to hear from the laundrie family attorney today but he canceled the press conference overnight. a search warrant released monday reveals gabby's mom began to fear the worst when she received an odd text message from her daughter on august 27th that reads quote, can you help stan? i just keep getting his voice mails and missed calls. that reference to stan was regarding gabby's grandfather but she never calls him by his first name so mom now thinks it wasn't gabby who sent that text
7:42 am
message. today, trace and dana, is an important day because an autopsy will be conducted on the body believed to be gabby petito so we'll learn more about the cause of death later today. >> trace: those results will be key, carley shimkus live for us in florida. >> dana: a new indictment putting a 're learning about efforts to spread false store eefs between donald trump and russia. as chaos at the border spirals out of control the department of national security is asking for help. >> the borders are not open and people should not make the dangerous journey. individuals and families are subject to border restrictions, including expulsion. so they only pay for what they need. woooooooooooooo... we are not getting you a helicopter.

>> trace: texas governor greg abbott heading to the southern border today after asking president biden yesterday for an emergency declaration over the border crisis. specifically the thousands of migrants who have camped out under the international bridge in del rio. let's get to bill live in del rio with more. bill. >> good morning. we're at del rio international
7:48 am
airport now. this is a u.s. coast guard airplane which has just been loaded with dozens of illegal immigrants who will be repatriated to their home country. look at this video we shot a short time ago. border patrol bus pulled up to the airport. border patrol agents started taking migrants off the bus, loading them into the aircraft. put their luggage on first and then they all marched in a single file line onto the aircraft. what was interesting about this is you'll see in the video it was not just single adult men who are being returned to their home countries. we saw family units. we saw what appeared to be small children and kids. so typically what we saw yesterday here at the airport were only single adult men. as you can see behind us now kids and family units appear to be going back as well. send it back to you. >> trace: that is a change. bill, thanks. >> dana: let's bring in lieutenant christopher ol --
7:49 am
ol vair ez. >> there were 15,000 migrants under the bridge this weekend. state troopers mobilized at a moment's notice we deployed hundreds of state troopers to the bridge and able to secure it and contain the surge of migrants coming across that day and since then we haven't seen any other groups trying to cross into the country illegally from that area. we have contained it with state resources. >> dana: the thing is as the lieutenant governor was speaking about earlier, this is not a state responsibility and your governor is asking for federal government help for an emergency declaration. what would that help provide? >> that would help provide more border security and more funding. not only for state agencies but for local agencies and county agencies. they need the help as well. they are being affected by the crisis as well and the entire e
7:50 am
country is being affected by it. the current administration needs to step in and do something about this crisis. it is out of control and we talk about it every and since the beginning of the year. there is no action from them. so the state of texas is having to step in to fulfill those needs because we have to protect our citizens. we have to protect the border communities and the entire country. >> dana: one of the things bill just report evidence is that in contrast to yesterday it looks like there were some family units including women and children who were being deported. that seems to be a little bit of a change from yesterday. do you know anything about that? >> i can't confirm that as far as whether they're actually being flown to. but they are transporting migrants throughout the day and throughout the night at the bridge and from right now there is approximately 9,000 migrants left under the bridge right now. there is progress being made since saturday from the number of 15,000. they are processing migrants.
7:51 am
all the federal resources that have been deployed are processing. right now it is state resources that are securing the area. >> dana: there is a humanitarian problem here obviously. people need food, water, they need access to facilities that would allow them to take a shower or even be able to go to the bathroom. you don't have any of that there. the federal government is not providing that. how is that happening there under the bridge? >> that's correct. i'm telling you, dana, the situation down there is horrible. you see these kids that are there laying on the ground in the dirt. the portable bathrooms that they have are at capacity and trash in the area. it is happening because of the failures of the current administration not implementing
7:52 am
stricter immigration policies. >> dana: you've provided some really interesting details especially the fact there is no help for the people of texas to be able to help the people who are there and no doubt that is weighing on everyone's minds. thank you so much. we'll stay in touch. >> trace: bad situation. up next digging into the special council report into the russian origins probe. the new questions about the clinton team's role in pushing a collusion narrative. whoo hoo! ensure, with 27 vitamins and minerals, now introducing ensure complete! with 30 grams of protein. veteran homeowners. the newday two and a quarter refi ensure complete! is the lowest rate in their history. two and a quarter percent. just 2.48 apr. newday's holding the line on rates so veterans can save thousands.

>> trace: special prosecutor john durham's indictment of michael sussman, attorney for hillary clinton's campaign raising questions about her possible role in triggering the trump/russia investigation. david spunt live with more. >> it's a 27-page indictment. while it may contain only one charge of lying to the f.b.i. on behalf of sussman. that's the allegation. it is providing somewhat of a roadmap where the special counsel john durham may go with his investigation. sussman last friday is a cybersecurity attorney who durham said went to the f.b.i. on behalf of the clinton campaign to expose a tie between donald trump and the kremlin. john durham says sussman did not disclose the clinton campaign tie when providing information to the f.b.i. but billing that campaign. he is just one piece of the
7:59 am
puzzle. hillary clinton knew sussman and denied any wrongdoing when it comes to concocting false stories about the president, former president and russia. on october 31, 2016, days before the election she tweeted computer scientists have uncovered a covert server linking the trump organization to a russian-based bank. mark he elias. fusion gps in turn hired christopher steele the former british spy and the author of the debunked steele dossier and used for the probe into the trump-russia investigation. no comment from mark elias at this time. et could submit something to attorney general merrick
8:00 am
garland and then the attorney general at the department of justice could decide to release it to the public. it could be a few more months. we don't know how long john durham is going to take. >> trace: david, thank you. >> dana: that story, there is a lot of sticky wickets in that story. we'll follow it. always good to be with you. "the faulkner focus" is up next. here is harris. >> harris: we begin with a fox news alert. the united states on the world stage as president biden addressed the u.n. general assembly last hour and came face-to-face with our closest allies around the world. when you check the facts, and you know we do, it is a very tough time for him to try to do that right now. i'm harris faulkner and you are in "the faulkner focus". president biden faced a litany of problems and catastrophes foreign and domestic going into his speech today. the military's botched drone strike in afghanistan is on the list and put our reputation further in
