there. 76 degrees. the sun is coming out right now it about 57 degrees. they have harbor cruises, trolleys. you can watch the whams and go to the zoo. >> steve: my brother-in-laws live out there. if they were smart they would charge us. want to see us we will come up for 20 bucks. >> brian: as a species, i'm glad they're not aggressive except for the killer whale which they think is not labeled accurately. killer whale is not bad. a mislabeling that they can't shake. notice they try to say or can a now. >> ainsley: as long as they stay in that little pool now when sea world shamu stays in there. >> brian: i'm pretty sure they prefer the ocean. >> ainsley: watch those documentaries it breaks your heart. >> brian: talk about something that's breaking joe biden's heart even though he never discusses in public just one word answers. that is hunter biden, everybody knows about his crack addiction
3:03 am
and proclivity for liking hookers and that's one thing. people like to get sidetracked on his personal problems. no one is ever interested in his personal problems. that's sad for him and people can identify with that just about every walk of life some addiction. everyone understands it. what people don't understand is why someone whose drug alleged put out to seemingly represent the family in the most high stakes international dealings with the most dicey countries on the planet paper trail reveals and i don't think people contend with include joe biden -- excuse me hunter biden's dealings in ukraine, romania, russia and most of all, china. keep in mind, this is -- the biden people keep saying this is not a joe biden problem. this is a hunter biden problem. and his emails and laptop are authentic and he has his own separate probe. man, every day getting closer and closer to the answer that
3:04 am
everyone can't deny. >> ainsley: was joe biden involved? did he get money for his son's business dealings in china and moscow with burisma? >> brian: did they trade on his name? >> ainsley: exactly. fox news exclusive this morning. fox digital received emails allegedly from his laptop and they show that president biden wrote a recommendation letter to the some of hunter biden's chinese business partner back in 2017. >> steve: well, now, hold the phone. i remember when joe biden was running for president peter doocy asked him out on the trail have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings? and joe biden angrily responded, snapped at peter, no. >> ainsley: peter asked again yesterday, doubling down on. that was. >> steve: we will play that in be just a second. joe says i have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings and yet this is the new news. fox news digital discovered that in 2017, joe biden wrote a college recommendation letter for the son of one of hunter's
3:05 am
overseas business executives. the recommendation was for the son of the ceo of bhr, a man by the name of jonathan lee. here's the email. it said, gentlemen, please find the attached resume of my son chris lee. he is applying to the following colleges. brown, cornell, and nyu. and then they are also on the laptop is an email from the money guy for hunter biden eric sherwin, the president of rosemont seneca write back to mr. lee upper jonathan asked me to send back a letter recommendation letter that he asked his father. that's the part right there. he asked his father joe biden to write on behalf of your son. the original is .
3:06 am
>> ainsley: call andrew baits at the white house deputy secretary. he says quote we don't comment on the laptop. peter doocy is at the white house. he asked jen psaki again, listen. >> steve: action. >> a lot of stories about hunter biden surfacing this week. so to ensure the independence of the investigation, would the president support the appointment of a special counsel? >> well, first, the president halls never had a conversation with the department of justice about any investigations into any member of his family. he said that during the campaign and he will continue to abide by that so i point to the department of justice for any additional steps they would take. they would make those decisions independent limit. >> the president has said that he never spoke to his son about his overseas business dealings. is that still the case? >> yes. >> brian: you don't need a special counsel to go into this. we need a special counsel find
3:07 am
out if donald trump had dealings with russia and go around his attorney general and basically lose his job after the midterms. keep in mind. that letter is going to be revealing. did joe biden in that letter say come to my attention that one of my son's business associates has a son that seems to be very talented and qualified. i would love for him to take a seat away from american kid and put this chinese kid there instead and of course we will use chinese money will pay for that whole tuition so i'm sure that's more favorable for any of these elite institutions that cost over 70,000. in that letter i'm very curious if he says this is a letter recommended by my son or say i have had a chance to meet lay family. they are charming people. this is a very talented young man which, of course, that would mean he flat out lied. now, keep in mind, james gill larr said to tony bobulinski whatever you do don't mention joe being involved. only when you are face to face. i know you know that already. but they are just being paranoid. so you look at this devon archer
3:08 am
and other business associate on a golf course with joe biden and hunter biden. this is a lot not to talk about as a family. don't talk to my brother about international business and don't talk to hunter about international business when we are golfing and then when he flies down to mexico with -- in air force 2 to meet with hunter biden's business associates. i guess they didn't talk about business again. >> steve: well, it has been proven and there are photographs out there as well. brian, when you mentioned, you know, it would be great to see the letter from brown. brown won't release the letter. >> ainsley: know if he went to school there. >> brian: we will find out. >> steve: but there is photographic evidence despite joe biden saying i don't talk to my son october 2020, burisma executive emails hunter to thank him for introducing me to your dad dinner at cafe milano in
3:09 am
d.c. joe biden, hunter biden, the moscow mayor's wife. et cetera. 2015, joe hosted a group of hunter's mexican business associates at the vice president's official residence, observation circle in washington, d.c. and there's a picture of hunter and joe and carlos slim, one of the richest guys in the world. so when jen psaki and joe biden say that about his overseas business dealings. , it appears somebody is lying. >> ainsley: it doesn't make sense? who wouldn't talk to their child about business dealings and have pictures together with some of the business partners on the golf course at the restaurant. >> brian: nancy pelosi son also doesn't talk to his mother about business dealings. >> ainsley: this is a trend. >> brian: i will add this. how could -- these other media outlets come right to this joint john harwood the best example.
3:10 am
there is no proof this is bad for hunter the laptop is authentic. looks like an indictment could be imminent. there is no, no sense that joe biden knew anything about this. you have to suspend disbelief to think that for a second that they are not sitting in all their numerous saying how can i continue to pretend as if the president doesn't know anything about this? how can they do that every day? >> ainsley: here is the question. is hunter getting money in exchange for influence when you see that one of his business partners they are making a lot of money together. and then he says can your dad, who is vice president. write a letter on my son's behalf? >> brian: can i say yes, of course? he is getting money only because his dad is his dad. >> steve: here's the thing. yesterday when the white house issued that statement we don't talk about the laptop, that's kind of a new answer. >> ainsley: that's true. >> steve: then again yesterday it was revealed that the white house chief of staff ron claim d when he left joe biden's staff when he went to drum up money for the vice president's house
3:11 am
when joe biden was the vice president, ron klain asked hunter in 2012 to help raise $20,000 to maintain the vice president's residence. who did he contact? he contacted that eric guy, the money guy we just quoted who helped facilitate the letter to brown. he was money guy. if got the money to provide 10 different donors of $2,000 each to make sure that the vice president's residence was in good condition. so, in other words, now the chief of staffer at the white house has been linked to the laptop. so no wonder the white house says we don't talk about the laptop. this is pretty easy. >> brian: i don't know why hunter biden would want his dad to be. evidently hunter was a real push to get joe to run for president. knowing that this spotlight wouldn't be on this probe if he wasn't president. so, again, he ends up writing a
3:12 am
book about it think about the arrogance. he writes a biography and does a book tour where he gets a couple questions, one from jimmy kimmel is the laptop yours? i don't know. so it's so bizarre this guy's thinking. >> steve: remember, brian, after bo biden died, you know, joe was being ask. >> brian: that's different though. >> steve: joe took a time-out and said i'm just not going to run. so, at some point, some push came to shove and joe biden decided you know what? despite everything i know i'm going to run. >> ainsley: bo would want me to. sean penn opens up about meeting ukrainian president zelenskyy when russia's invasion began. >> it's extraordinary courage that's come up. it was in his eyes and it is clear to me that the ukrainians will win this. the question is at what cost? >> steve: exactly. sean penn's thoughts on the resilience of the ukrainian people as he spoke to sean

3:18 am
the kremlin or quote dissolve yourself all together. i hear you. >> ainsley: griff jenkins is live on the ground in lviv with the latest. griff? >> griff: good morning, ainsley, brian and steve. that's right. president zelenskyy had a very clear message for the u.n. security council saying that if they don't act that we can expect more of the same horrors we are seeing coming out of bucha and he lashed out at the world body for not doing more to hold the world accountable. watch. >> the u.n. security council exists and security in the world doesn't for anyone. this definitely means that the united nations is currently unable to carry out functions for which it was created. >> griff: steve, as you mentioned those sanctions are expected today. they include banning new investment in russia. increasing sanctions on financial institutions and new sanctions for russian government officials and their families. and at the pentagon they announced an additional 100 million in security assistance which means more of those javelins are on the way to the battlefield here.
3:19 am
and another gruesome discovery coming out of bucha, we have to warn our viewers these images again are graphic and disturbing. six charred bodies in a pile. one small enough to be a child. unblears what happened or who they were but visibly upset ukraine's interior minister on the ground in bucha had three words for vladimir putin. >> talked to vladimir putin when his forces governmental to hell. >> griff: meanwhile a will sobering assessment from general mark milley chairman of the joint chiefs over how long this war could last. >> i think this is a very contracted. it's years i don't know about decades but at least years for sure. >> griff: finally an uplifting video coming out of the war zone. ukraine's deputy minister tweeting this dog evacuated from bucha being returned to his
3:20 am
owner the ukrainian military facilitating that reunion. a bittersweet moment in a very, very tragic tough time as this war enters the 42nd day. brian, ainsley and steve? >> brian: of course, griff, as you know, the russian ambassador denies all of it. essentially thinks it's all a show. the ukrainians did it to themselves. maybe indicated that they are actors. does anyone in the world buy this? this is a slow rolling holocaust. >> no. they don't buy it, brian. in fact, ukrainians have distrusted russians from the very beginning when they first started by saying they were going to target civilians. we know that wasn't true. then when they said they were going to do escalate around the kyiv region and look at the destruction and massacre they left behind in bucha, and believe it or not, the kremlin pool note, which tracks the kremlin's activities, says just moments ago that the kremlin spokesman, dmitry pet cough put
3:21 am
out a statement talking to reporters saying that the russian authorities quote do not want to kill zelenskyy in that they consider their departure from the kyiv region a gesture of goodwill and look to restart those negotiations i mentioned zelenskyy the most popular person on planet earth now. sean penn the week before the invasion was in ukraine and got meet then, you know, he was the president but he was famous for being an actor in ukraine. what he saw unfold, sean penn during the initial was a guy who was an actor, a theatrical person and then being tested by being at war and leading a nation and it completely changed
3:22 am
him. >> ainsley: sean penn was over there shooting a documentary. in the middle of shooting this documentary, this war breaks out, and he has such a heart for the ukrainian people. sean hannity calls him up and says would you do an interview with me and he says man, i don't trust you. we disagree on everything. almost everything. we have opposing political views. and he. >> steve: only thing in common were the names sean and sean. >> ainsley: and their love for ukrainian people. they want to keep the dreams of the ukrainian people alive. he thought about it for a while and he said can we just talk about ukraine because we just disagree on everything. so he was on set with sean here in the fox headquarters last night. and it was such a moving interview because it gave all of us hope and fascinating to watch these two people on totally different political sides of the aisle come together for this cause. watch a little bit of this interview. >> sean: it was game on and so to -- in him i saw something that i have never seen before in
3:23 am
my lifetime. that, like i said, having seen him, yes, prepared for it, yes, hoping against hope it would not happen, but a man who had not yet been challenged with it's happening. and the next day i saw something that is a man but it's a man with the adrenalinized, the face of something that you see in you a of ukrainians we saw and talked to whether they were in uniform, out of uniform, school teachers, even children. this extraordinary courage that's come up. it was in his eyes and it is clear to me that the ukrainians will win this the question is at what cost? >> ainsley: you can hear his emotion. >> brian: went on to say mayor is going to run against him as
3:24 am
president. enough to he is fighting for him. the whole unified around them. we have to get aid to them it's got to be quicker. what we have already discovered in that area blackened body arms raised in supplication if they contorted with a horrible scream the skull of a mother had a bullet through its left temple. small blackened foot of a child that could be entang gel he gelled in the. and the russians are burning swastikas see into victims bodies. raped girls as young as 10 and sitting on the sidelines and we are having trouble -- we can't get # hundred javelins into this country. brett velicovich wrote me again this morning saying look we are sitting here in kyiv. we cannot walk around. they are not getting the american aid. so the pentagon can say whatever they want. they are not getting it nearly at the pace they need it. for mark milley say yesterday it's going to be a long war, no. you have to do what you can as part of a civilized as a guy who is chairman of the joint chiefs of staff of the finest military in the world to make sure it doesn't last a long time.
3:25 am
because the longer they stay even though they lose every battle the more innocent people are going to be murdered in the most horrific way possible every day. you can imagine what this country is going to look like in three years if it's the mark milley game plan of how it's going to play out? that's unacceptable answer. >> ainsley: both seans last night agreed we need to get the middle to them and missiles to them and sean penn says ukrainians will win this war. at the end of the interview sean kept his promise. they just talked about ukraine. they shook hands. >> steve: very good. more later. in the meantime carley is with us now. carley, big storm down south? >> carley: that's right. we will pick it up right there with a fox weather alert. a massive storm system battering the south leaving at least two people dead in texas and georgia. dozens of tornadoes reported across the region carving out a trail of destruction. a tornado warning in south carolina's capital sending state
3:26 am
lawmakers scrambling for shelter in the state house basement. today more than 45 million people are under enhanced severe weather threat as another powerful storm begins taking shape. some students at the university of buffalo are using intimidation tactics to try to cancel a speech by lieutenant colonel allen west. they ripped down fliers and are planning a campus protest this week. colonel west joined "fox & friends" earlier to call out the students hypocrisy of a accusing him of racism because he is a conservative. watch. >> this is part of this whole mindset that your skin color defines everything about your ideology and if you don't agree with the progressive socialist left ideology then you are not seeing this. >> carley: did he not know if the students would or could face repercussions for destroying leaflets he will speak despite their efforts to shut the event down. and tiger woods set to practice again today at augusta national golf club where the masters is
3:27 am
set to t off tomorrow it comes after woods makes a major announcement about his possible participation, watch. >> as of right now, i feel like i am going to play as of right now. >> do you think you can win the masters this week? >> i do. >> carley: woods' incredible come back following his potentially career ending crash in february of last year. he was in attendance for the annual master's championship dinner. the tradition has been running since 1952. how about that? i'm sure brian you have a lot of thought on it and everything else. >> brian: if he is able to play the next four days. if he makes the cut and plays the next four days i think greatest achievement ever if you talk to these medical doctors that say they can't believe is he walking. >> steve: that's the hard part. thank you very much, carley. >> carley: you are very welcome. >> steve: hitting the ball is not as hearted as walking. there are no golf carts at augusta. if he played, it will be the

3:34 am
illegally. and unless they broke a law here, we don't know what they are doing when they come to the border. it could be ms-13, we know pop plating long island. 1.7 million undocumented migrants have been apprehended over the last year. the numbers are so far dramatically higher this year. let's bring it to you, bonnie. what are you seeing in front of you and what do you fear as title 42 is set to evaporate in one month? >> you know, we're talking about people being dropped off on buses but the thing that we see where i live is we have no border patrol present. so another byproduct of all of this is there is a lot of foot drug traffic. and this is basically left on its own because the agents are otherwise processing or transporting so we see on almost a daily basis guys from across mexico, backpacking drugs

4:14 am
collusion was real. you know what? john durham could be on to something. the big question is how far will the department of justice let him go? >> ainsley: his report also claims that sussmann exploited his access to sensitive data to get trump dirt. >> brian: what happened from there? our attorney general was forced to step aside as special counsel was launched and for the next two years. forget about donald trump. our country was put through this russia turmoil that sidetracked us from major issues. a to z from our own economy to our own international relations and what might have been able to be done with russia in the meantime because everything went on ice because of this. >> steve: america deserves an explanation what happened and it sounds like it could be getting closer. >> ainsley: it's been years. we are ready to get this information. >> steve: absolutely. >> ainsley: hand it over to carley for headlines. >> carley: certainly do. got an update on an important story we have been following out of california. sacramento police arresting a new suspect in connection with last weekend's deadly shooting

4:33 am
intelligence this morning says they're experiencing heavy fighting and russian shelling. >> brian? >> brian: all right. thanks, griff. i have a million questions but i will get to you later. i want to bring in chris christie now, form everywhere new jersey governor all over this story. governor is, that okay the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says this is going to last years? how many more children has got to be assassinated or pedestrians walking on the street? how many more nazi signals have to be burned into bodies before we say this war is over? we don't have this type of time. >> no. look. brian. this is why the biden administration blew this right from the beginning. they should have armed the ukrainians and continued to do what the trump administration was doing in arming the ukrainians and ramped it up even more. we knew the russians were coming. they have been saying that for more than a year. yet, they didn't arm the ukrainians and now trying to rush through it too late. as a result, we are seeing thousands and thousands of people killed in ukraine, it's a disgrace. >> brian: as they uncover more and more of these cities, as
4:34 am
they retreat to try to secure the south and the east, they are going to see more horror. including the murders of a mayor and her family, 50-year-old woman. was killed and buried with her entire family. right in front of what was the governor's residence. i mean or the mayor's residence. this is a moving ongoing holocaust in 2022. i thought we swore this would never happen again. >> well, we did. and that's why we have to do even more than we are doing now to let the ukrainians be able to defend themselves, to be able repel the russian invasion. we have to be giving them those migs. >> brian: not there yet. >> aircraft that they want. we interest to do that, brian. if we don't, the russians are going to continue to do this. >> brian: they have got to stop taking natural gas immediately. we will discuss that. but i want you to hear this exchange and we will expand from here. the hunter biden laptop is real. we knew that. most clear thinking people did.
4:35 am
and it keeps lingering more and more, closer and closer to the president of the united states. listen to this exchange. >> is there any concern that they're not going to be necessarily seen as being able to make the decisions independently if the white house chief of staff is out saying that the president is confident his son did not break the law? >> that's something the president has said and certainly we would echo. in the same answer to that question, peter, during an interview this week on abc, ron klain also said the justice department is independent and they will make their own decisions. >> the president has said that he never spoke to his son about his overseas business dealings. is that still the case? >> yes. >> brian: right. do you see what happened today in the "new york post" today -- excuse me, fox news exclusive, it's in the post as well. it looks like joe biden has been asked by the chinese business partner of hunter biden to write a letter of recommendation to get that chinese business man's son into nyu, cornell, or
4:36 am
another distinguished. >> steve: brown. >> brian: or brown university. so does it still seem separate to you? >> no, look. this is very simple, brian. you know, the justice department cannot be able to do this in an independent way when the president and his people are saying some of the things they are saying. >> she should be absolutely silent on this issue instead they are saying the things they said publicly that you just talked about. it calls into question people's feeling about whether or not the attorney general appointed by the president of the united states can truly be independent in this regard. and, by the way. we know what the democrats would be saying if this were going on in a republican administration. and so what we need is to get to the bottom of it and let's face it, the media has been complicit in this. the mainstream media, i talked about this on sunday, "the washington post" and the "new york times" and others turn their heads to this controversy during the campaign. because they didn't want this to
4:37 am
interfere with their narrative that joe biden deserved to be elected president. and, you know, now all of a sudden they are saying well the "new york post" was right. you know, when they messed around with this, brian, you know what happened. the "new york times" got a pulitzer prize and the "new york post" that was right, they actually got banned from twitter. this is where we are right now. and we need to get to the bottom of it and get to the truth. i think, you know, that's the only way that the biden administration survives this. >> brian: i just know the reporters know that they were told to stay off that story. and i saw that in their face when you confronted them on sunday. the "new york times" and "the washington post" should be ashamed of themselves. and someone should go out and talk about that. i know you are also getting ready to possibly run for president yourself. i know you are trying to help other people get elected and have a big midterm. barack obama was asked yesterday in his first visit back to the white house in years, what the democrats should run on in the midterms. listen to this. >> mr. president, what do you say to democrats worried about the midterms?
4:38 am
>> brian: tell your story. you got a great story to tell. do they? >> i want them to follow barack obama's advice and we will get the same results we got in the midterms in 2010 and 2014 when he was president. romped by the republican party. here is the story they have to tell. $5 a gallon gasoline. run away inflation at the supermarket. critical race theory in the classroom. crime on the streets that is rampant in american cities. a porous border that people are pouring over now, pour even more if they continue to change policy and revoke title 42 and an awful withdrawal from afghanistan and slowness in terms of defending the ukrainians. tell that story and the republicans are going to retake the house, the senate and we're going to have more than 30 governorships. and, their biggest target in this entire race is governor brian kemp down in georgia and let me tell you right now, he is going to be reelected the

4:44 am
of some judges there in texas for emboldening criminals. harris county texas constable mark herman joins us now from the houston area. constable, good morning to you. >> will hi, good morning. >> steve: this is a big step, why did you decide this is important that your deputies are armed with ar-15s? >> it's a safety issue. not only for our community but for our deputies to know the law enforcement tool that we felt we needed to roll out and, again, as you mentioned, it's because of a lot of the failed policies that here in harris county, i mean, just in three years, harris county has went to almost the top murder rate in the united states because of these failed policies. and we know it is basically these policies have emboldened these criminals to where they're, you know, i think there was like 150 citizens that were
4:45 am
killed by individuals out on bond. and now they are attacking law enforcement. we had two deputies killed just last week. one with the sheriff's office and one with the constable's office. and it's very important for us to be able to adequately protect our communities. >> steve: sure. you know, you are down in texas. it's one thing i'm sitting here in new york city. and we have been talking for a while about how the woke -- the policies bail reform here in new york state have made it pretty much a revolving door. it's almost impossible to get arrested and then put in jail unless you kill somebody here in new york but down there in texas you are saying the same thing is happening as well. because there is little or no consequence for people doing things wrong because of some judges in your neck of the woods, right? >> absolutely. and i will just tell you, you know, if it wasn't for governor greg abbott and lieutenant governor dan patrick, law enforcement here in texas would
4:46 am
be in big trouble, especially in the bigger counties. it's -- the criminals down here are emboldened, they are getting out of jail before our deputies are even finishing their paperwork. most of the time when they get out there is little or no bond whatsoever. they just release them back out. >> steve: i'm sure one of the reasons that you are taking this measure to arm your people with ar-15s is because it was not that long ago your people were attacked by a bad guy with an ar-15 and your guys were outgunned. >> yeah. certainly deputy atkins was unfortunately killed back in october of last year. he was with two other deputies who were also shot in the same ambush. one of which is still in the hospital today on dialysis. is he paralyzed. he will never walk again. you know, the criminals have these rifles, so will we. >> steve: constable, exit question. what else the reaction from local folks there in the houston area about you doing this?
4:47 am
>> look at my social media platforms. they love it they say it's about time. i have had other law enforcement leaders from houston call me and say, mark, i'm going to start doing the exact same thing and putting more weapons out on the street to better protect our communities and, look, let's face it, at the end of the day, that's what it has come down to, criminals, the only thing criminals understand is strength against strength. and law enforcement is more powerful. >> steve: there you go. joining us from texas constable mark herman. thank you very much. good luck. >> thank you. >> steve: you bet. it's a dozen minutes before the top of the hour. janice is inside because it's raining outside. >> janice: very grateful and so is my hair because it is raining cats and dogs out there in new york city. look at this. heavy rainfall along the i-95 corridor this is going to clear out in the next couple of hours but then we have got this next storm system is going to move. in we got 6 to 12 inches of snow

4:56 am
part of that starts with having faith and believing that god i do believe in the palm of your hand. just give god something to work with and it's amazing what he can do. >> ainsley: i love that i don't know if you have ever heard of that today is friday but sunday is coming. it's so powerful and i know you preach about that. talk about how you ended up being thrust on to i want to say the stage or at the pulpit to run lakewood church. i know you had your sunday sermon and your father passed away tragically a few days later. >> yeah. you know, ainsley, i never dreamed i would be doing this i worked behind the scenes doing the television production. but, like you said, the first time i ever spoke from the pulpit was six days before my father died. never dreaming i would be doing this i was just doing it to make my father proud. he would ask me for all those years. but he passed that next friday, six days later. and i felt like i was supposed to step up and pastor the church. i took that step of faith. never dreaming that it would

take the individuals to the bus station and put them on buses and they are released wherever they want to go in our country. >> steve: the way they set it up and our cameras have been outside that bus depot a number of times and what dhs has done as we follow the people in, they put up tarps so that you can't see them inside, that is a parking structure, where they are doing the stuff. they come out, go across the street and have athlick charities and other ngo's and organizations and those people then give each of these migrants, give them a welcome bag and apparently a government-issued telephone. the whole issue now and this is what the dhs is going to say, well, you know what, we're letting them into the interior of the united states, we are tracking them with cell phones, they have the gps thing in them. bill said no way to stop them
5:12 am
from tossing them, they know that essentially the phone that uncle sam gave them is tracking them. if you are in the country and don't want uncle sam to track you, you throw it in the garbage. >> brian: on monday agents apprehend migrants, on tuesday, roma, 36 unaccompanied migrant children. other rio grand saw 527, overall 1.7 million have come across illegally and have no interest in stopping, they don't build a fence or bolster the border patrol or talk about border patrol unless there is a fake horse patrol ipsdent they want to investigate and make sure someone is held accountable. title 42 is puts in place during the pandemic to make sure people turn around, single males during the pandemic. sorry, you are not vaccinated, we are in a global pandemic,
5:13 am
turn around. that was not strictly enforced, but it was there and gave 175,000 people a reason to stay in mexico because you couldn't come across, now title 42 evaporates next month and democrats are beginning to say this is not good. >> ainsley: these are the democrats who are opposed or very concerned about title 42 being evaporated. you can see six senators, that are democrats, three in the house are democrats and they are worried because their states are affected. >> brian: some of these are mark kelly, where has he been? should be leading like kyrsten sinema. john tester says i'm supposed to be moderate, i am upset about it. joe manchin seems to always do the right thing and henry cuewell, lar has some out strong
5:14 am
on the border. >> steve: they are politicians, they will do what is plate cally smart. >> brian: they say they are for the people. >> steve: they are still politicians. the people who matter are lives who are impacted. the fact you need to know when they stop with title 42 thing, they are suggesting that 18,000 people stream across the border everyday. where are those people going to go? 18,000, that is bigger than selina, kansas was when i was a little boy, i believe. like one selinea coming in everyday. it adds up. ainsley talked to folks living in the communities impacted by this mass migration and here is what they had to say about what is going on. >> know what people are getting off that bus, people are coming across this land and we don't know who they are.
5:15 am
we can't take care of homeless people here, it upsets me we are willing to bend over backward for people from other countries and can't take care of our own american citizens. >> we see on almost daily basis, guys backpacking drugs through our community into our cities. >> it is clear the biden administration does not care about the safety of the american people nor immigrants. >> brian: border area, the theory was 2008, if you want hispanic votes, do not be strong on the border. that is 100% wrong, donald trump figured that out. cuellar and gonzalez, same thing, citizens say you are ruining our lives by allow thanksgiving to happen. >> steve: yesterday on this program, we ran video from the day before of mayor adams in new york and he was unveiling new digital billboards that are
5:16 am
going to be run down in florida trying to get people who are live nothing florida to move to new york, where there has been a gigantic exodus over the last couple years. he was talking about down in florida, they have parental rights bill or the don't say gay bill, you can see on the poster. he is thinking because here in new york city he said, you can say anything you want, people will move from florida to new york city, where it is drizzling and raining. >> ainsley: didn't take ron desantis long to respond, listen. >> new york is telling people come to new york from florida, they are wasting taxpayer money doing that, i don't know why they would do it. they say you can say whatever you want, they are the ones that will force a mask on your face and muzzle you in public, which they did for a year and a half and didn't have the constitutional right to do and they just fired somebody who was criticizing the mayor for
5:17 am
masking the toddlers, they still make toddlers wear masks in new york. that is just so fundamentally wrong, but that is what they are doing. if you speak up for the kids, they fire you from your job. no wonder why they are having problems. >> ainsley: i love the guy behind him cracking up laughing, that is ridiculous. violent crime is on the rise in new york and showing no sign of letting up machlt jority of voters said their family would be better off if they fled new york city. respondents, agreed with that statement. that is up 12% more say they should be leaving new york compared to a year ago when they were asked same question. >> brian: they didn't need to advertise, let people live their lives through the pandemic and zero taxes and better weather and the freedom that was exhibited, not many people say,
5:18 am
i got to send my kid to school to learn about gender identity in first, second and kindergarten, they think that is a positive to get peep toll move out of florida. >> steve: so many new yorkers have moved, i know so many peep whole have moved to florida, listen, if i could do this job from florida, we would. they have this great big studio here with really nice air conditioning and a couch and so we're here. >> ainsley: what state lines up with your views, what do you want your children to learn and how do you want them to grow up. >> steve: i like the tax idea. >> ainsley: i do, too. >> brian: 18 after the hour, a woman who pays her taxes. >> i certainly do, i can't confirm on air. a few more days. start with fox weather alert, a massive storm system battering the south, leaving at least one killed in texas and one killed in georgia. dozens of tornados reported across the region carving a

>> ainsley: a fox news alert, russia's war in ukraine enters 42nd day, heavy fighting encircles mariupol and ukraine calls to remove russia from the un security council. alex hogan joins us live. >> ukrainian president zelenskyy says he is using his speech to speak for residents who no longer have a voice. he addressed leaders urging russia be removed from the un
5:26 am
security council. >> the un security council exists and security in the world doesn't for anyone, this means the united nations is unable to carry out functions for which it was created. >> world condemnation as more footage comes out. we have blurred some images, it is quite graphic of charred bodies of civilians set on fire, one was small enough it appears it might have been a child. the images leaving interior ministry partially at loss of words. >> putin and his forces -- >> go to hell. >> the u.s. is expected to slap russia with another round of sanctions today like the eu did yesterday. in france, sweden, germany, spain and portugal, kicking out russian diplomats. six million are internally displaced and four million fled
5:27 am
the country as the war stretches to week six. general mark milley warning it will not end any time soon. >> i do think this is protracted conflict measured in years, i don't know about decades issue but years for sure. >> ukraine says in mariupol, the eastern city contested for weeks, rubbing likely putting pressure on ukrainian forces trying to get them to surrender. people remain trapped. the city of kyiv is under increased humanitarian pressure where food is running out. ainsley. >> ainsley: so hard to watch the images, thank you for reporting on it, be careful. new op ed, next guest argues west must kreen putin like the war criminals they are.
5:28 am
douglas murray is here to explain. good morning. tell us about your op ed and what you mean by that. >> what is clear, russia forces withdrawn faster than they expected to and haven't been able to cover up their crimes. we have seen footage like we have from bucha outside kyiv and other towns and elsewhere, where they just left bodies out on the streets, we've seen people shot in the head, people bound and shot and this testimony of russian soldiers, drunken russian soldiers kicking down the doors of houses and finding women and rapeing and murdering them. ukraine mp released unshowable piece of footage of woman tortured and murdered by forces and had a swastika scowered on her back. this is presumably part of putin's lie, he told his
5:29 am
soldiers they are going to a country run by nazis. people commit war crimes under diluted ideas that vladamir putin pumped out. he is responsible for this. his forces are responsible for this. these are sorts of crimes we hoped we would not see in the 21st century happening in ukraine. >> ainsley: when you hear general milley saying this could be years long war, i'm not the expert, he is. can we sustain this? can they sustain this? will the ukrainians win? >> i might not be the only person who says what general milley says with a pinch of salt after afghanistan. that is one problem, we in america have become suspicious of our militarys leaders and that is a shame there are many great people in the u.s. army who know what they are talking about. it could go any way, depends if vladamir putin can sustain a prolonged war.
5:30 am
the russian people are pretty good with dealing with what comes their way. i believe what has happened are war crimes, the person responsible is vladamir putin. it is the kremlin that started this and now of course the west and countries like america have a choice, should we make russia pay even more? now of course there is moral problem with this, which is the war zone that is happening in this ukraine, do we keep arming ukraine to make the russian defeat more crush something we could do. it depends whether or not the ukrainians are willing to go along with that. whatever happens, russia under putin cannot be treated like a normal country after this. zelenskyy claiming russia could be thrown off the ushg n security council is a neat idea, the security council has been a flawed organization from the get go. start to talk about reorganization of the security
5:31 am
council and you open up all sorts of problems, why should china be on it, for instance. i'm not sure that is the way. more and more sanctions definitely. sanctions of putin's family is happening more. giving more ammunition to make sure the russian military defeat is as humiliaing as possible should be our goal. >> ainsley: the interior minister said putin should go to hell. >> he is right. >> ainsley: still ahead, he's back, tiger woods returning to golf just in time for the masters. clay travis will join us live on tiger's hunt for the sixth green jacket coming up next. ♪ ♪ ♪

5:38 am
consider how serious his injuries were in the car accident outside of los angeles, it is just hard to believe he will be able to walk eight or nine miles all over this course on thursday, friday and make the cut. if you believe that he is going to make the cut, though and maybe you want to get your bets in in new york. 45-1 at fox bet that tiger woods is going to win the masters and all of us remember that iconic walk up to 18 when tiger woods won in 2019. it is one of the great masters moments of all time and it is going to be a ton of people getting ready for the start of spring, i know you guys in new york and certainly people in the northeast and in the midwest who are ready for the cold weather to be gone, you look down at the blooming azaleas in augusta and it represents a new birth and
