according to this chart increasing ever since he was elected. record-setting price of gas, one reason the president was asking saudi arabia to put more oil and they have implied. critics want the president to put more oil in the u.s. he called saudi arabia, facing u.s. policy comes as the president prepares israel next month to think the crown prince with a handshake and photo up for increasing oil production during go back from the left and right. a report biden's treasury secretary did not deport the enormous $1.9 trillion covered relief package which many say cost inflation crisis or exacerbated, janet yellen put out a statement saying the report is false and she always reported that. she said i was wrong about inflation earlier this week, three words you don't hear often. earlier this week the president and chair of the federal reserve, ramped up messaging campaign, some economists look at the declining labor participation rate is a reason to be cautious about the economy. >> you got a lot of people who

family units. a few hours ago we saw another group you can see in this video, a smaller group, only ten, a family of nicaraguans, three or chinese necklace nationalists, they said they left china and they are persecuted by the government. in the last 24 hours, we can show you how many migrant encounters that have been across the four top sectors, you see at the top rio grande valley sector, 1318, 15 more in del rio, el paso over 1000 in yuma in arizona, 346%, more than 4500 total in the last 24 hours in these four sectors. we had the opportunity to go into a migrant shelter across the river from me, you can see here there are more than 1500 migrants, the director there says there's more than 5000 mostly haitians on the streets
in the city and he said he wants the administration to send a stronger message to migrants who may be coming to border cities because of anticipation of title 42. he wants the administration to tell them not to come. >> the administration we have right now, all of the families suffering right now, we have families here on the border. >> a caravan leader in mexico confirmed to us 11000 migrants will start marching north. to bring it all home, 11000 that may be on their way monday, 4500 apprehended in last 24 hours, all will come with a bracelet the cartel gave them when they paid. it's numbered, organized, and assembly line efficiency and ultimately it means trumpets for
the cartel on the mexican side of the work. jon: unbelievable numbers. chris, thank you. let's get into this more, for public and senator marsha blackburn, you've heard the numbers in the senate, numbers he's reporting, your reaction? >> this is something we have expected to happen because the biden administration border policy has been open border. last year there were people from 160 different countries we've been hearing for weeks that the cartel who are global operations are bringing people from all across the globe to the southern border waiting for title 42 to be lifted and we are hearing about the shelters that are packed full and griff jenkins was saying people have bracelets, they are labeled and numbered, they are going to have to repay the cartel when they get here which means human
trafficking, sex trafficking, drug trafficking not in mexico but in the united states. it is imperative that we build that wall, keep title 42, keep remain in mexico and support border patrol who are working every single day to try to protect us. we are even hearing people from russia and ukraine coming to the southern border to get in the u.s. jon: we heard in the report a family from china walked across our border. your fellow republican senator marshall of kansas made a visit to the southern border. here's what he had to say about what he saw there. >> kansas is now a border state. we have people dying most every day now from fentanyl poising in almost every state and in the union is having people die from
fentanyl poisoning. what we saw is a humanitarian crisis. the humanitarian across the world, i've been to poland recently, this is one of the worst humanitarian crisis i've seen. jon: the worst humanitarian crisis he's ever seen. who at the white house thinks it's okay to let this continue? >> this is one of the most uncompassionate policies i've ever seen. every state is a border state, every town a border town. one of the sheriff's i was talking to said 80% of the drug save apprehended here in tennessee are fentanyl related. most of the drug deaths are sentinel related. most of the american drug overdoses are fentanyl this is not compassionate. you are giving the cartel control over these lives if you
do not stop them. because people are coming in, then forced in trafficking, drug trafficking, they are forced into labor gangs, they are also msn 13 gang, your seen crime on the street, when i talked to tennesseans, three big issues, inflation, crime and drugs. jon: we will get into inflation. >> i relate it to the open border. jon: i want to put out the total numbers of border encounters this fiscal year versus the previous fiscal year including end of the trump administration, the beginning of the biden administration, 1,296,000 roughly, so far in fiscal year 2022. than the previous fiscal year, 7,150,000 roughly, it is up 73% just this fiscal year, how can
the nation continue to sustain those numbers? >> you cannot continue this. what you are going to see if title 42 is lifted, 18000 people a day coming across that border. when i heard that number i was taken aback so i looked up the number in tennessee, 345, 90% of those cities have 18000 or fewer residents in the city. it's the equivalent of the population of a tennessee town coming across the border. your viewers, the population of different towns and cities in their state and get an idea of the magnitude that this is. as i said, they are forced to the cartel, the cartel are making money hand over fist and the american taxpayer is footing
the bill, the open border is responsible in large part for the drug and crime problem we are seeing in our communities and of course this is something that's costing our local sheriffs and police departments extraordinary amounts of money to deal with this. jon: it's also going to cost of those on the lower end of the wage scale because all of these new arrivals will look for jobs, willing to work illegally, willing to work for less money than many americans are in fact one of the problems the border presents. the biden administration says things are rosy, the president himself said this regarding the economy. listen to what the president said about americans feeling financially comfortable. >> families are carrying less debt, average savings are of, recent survey from the federal reserve found more americans feel financially comfortable in
any time since it began in. [two bells tolling] that confidence and comfort ability as part of the reason why americans apply to start more new small businesses last year than ever before in american history. jon: give us your reaction to what the president said? >> bless his heart. one thing is for sure, joe biden knows how to build back broke, i will say that because gas is $4.70 a gallon here in tennessee and in 2020 under president trump, same month, june, it was $2.17. that shows you what happened at the pump i'm at the grocery store, prices are up. you go to buy clothes or shoes, everything is up. people are stressed to the max. because they know things are out of control, spending is out of control. crime, the border and when you
talk about the issue of inflation and how it impacts families, they are beginning to say what is this going to look like? they are very nervous about what the biden economic policies hold for them. jon: a lot of disappointed americans seeing record prices at the gas pump which continued to increase right now. marsha blackburn, senator, thank you. coming up, we are tracking the first tropical depression of the hurricane season in florida, the tropical threat i should say. authorities are trying to pump nearly a foot of rainwater a flooded. we will take you there. plus the hotly contested report in senate primary in pennsylvania. we learn more about the credit company who suffered a stroke last month. ♪♪

democratic opponent tweeting that now that the primary is over, we'll make sure u.s. senate seat does not fall into the hands of the radical left by john federman, so much discussion about federman's house, his doctor spoke out about it publicly saying if he takes himself seriously, this time he will be fine and should be able to campaign and serve the senate without a problem. lots of eyes watching. this is set to finish by june 8. jon: a race to watch. alexis, thank you. the justice department indicted former trump advisor, peter navarro and two counts of contempt for defying subpoena from the january 6 committee. d.o.j. says he refused to be deposed or hand over documents. he faces up to a year in jail and $100,000 fine with each count. alexandria hoff in washington. >> navarro has taken issue with
the why and how of his arrest, he says fbi agents allowed him to go to the airport friday and wait until he was about to board a plane to put him in handcuffs. that afternoon the former trump advisor had his first court appearance after federal grand jury indicted him on criminal contempt of congress. he refuses to comply with the january 6 comedian committee saying since he worked as a trump white house, executive privilege applies to him and exam before the committee. >> there's no set law and the law means squarely toward my right to senior testimony immunity and president trump right to executive privilege. >> in an interview, he called possible prosecution domestic terrorism. he's doing house speaker nancy pelosi over actions of the january 6 committee calling the investigation panel illegitimate. with midterms bringing the possibility of republicans taking the house majority, he says the committee itself is
under a time crunch. >> i think the january 6 committee and democrats no the clock is ticking against them, one reason i think they are trying to move so quickly because if navarro is prosecuted for defying subpoena and the committee that issued the subpoena evaporates or dissolves the republicans can, i don't see how you continue to persecute the case. >> the second official, contempt steve bennet also fuses to commit. jon: alexandria hoff, thank you. if the justice department said yesterday it will not charge former trump officials mark meadows and dan with contempt of congress. generally six committee leaders call that decision puzzling and asking for more clarity from the d.o.j. this comes as the committee plans to hold its first public hearings on the insurrection in primetime starting next thursday. massive concert tonight,

allow banks to miss it could replace cash. >> they can no longer be targets for criminals and quite frankly, canvas businesses are easy marks. >> banking has passed the house times hit a roadblock in the senate mainly from democrats holding out for federal marijuana decriminalization. >> i will lay myself down and do all i can to stop easy bank to allow the corporations to make more money office as opposed to focusing on. >> latest efforts to pass safe thinking active to a bill designed to make the u.s. more competitive china. republicans see the obvious disconnect so pot shop will likely remain all cash and among the most dangerous dangerous place to work. ♪♪

president biden reportedly is frustrated with aids for walking back his public statements. nbc news reports the president is unhappy about a pattern that developed inside the west wing, he makes it clear only to have aids rush to explain he actually meant something else. the so-called cleanup campaign he's told advisors undermines him and smothers the authenticity that fueled his drive. joe concha joins us now, fox news contributor. joe, can you blame some of the white house staffers who have to try to clean up the sometimes confusing statements from the president? >> i think you mean when the president says that we will
respond if the russians use chemical weapons on ukraine and therefore we are going to use chemical weapons or we will defend taiwan if the chinese attacks, does that mean we are going to engage china who has a standing military of more than 2 million militarily and nuclear weapons? you can understand by the white house staff has to clean things up but if the president really means what he says that he's the commander-in-chief and therefore should tell his staff when i say something, i mean it and no ambiguity whatsoever, you should not step in and therefore make me look bad by saying i'm trying to say something i'm not actually saying, i don't need clarification but he's not doing that. if he's frustrated, he should talk to his staff and talk about that but it's amazing the president talks about how he's
mystified by his poll numbers in terms of being in the 30s and 20s on some issues yet you got to look at it's not a matter of messaging when you have for instance, inflation at 1.4% when this president took office and now it's that 8.3%, that's six times increase in inflation, you can't spin the fact that gas prices have now doubled since the president took office. you can't spin the fact that crime in terms of officers targeted more than ever before and we are seeing criminals are so brazen in city after city in this country, you can't spin that anymore. it's not messaging, it's what people feel and see and they know what's going on. jon: i am extremely happy my four children are all grown not in need of baby formula anymore because that's another issue with this white house. peter doocy asked the president
new spokesperson wednesday and her response i think you can only call a dodge. >> who's the person in the west wing after six or eight weeks that this baby formula shortage was finally something somebody should tell the president about? >> i have to go back to the president -- >> somebody at the white house to say this could be an issue that requires -- >> i don't have a timeline on that. >> yes, he's satisfied the the president is satisfied with the fda's response. we don't know a great deal about what the president is thinking because he himself has had a press conference or even a one on one with the reporter and what, four months? >> we are talking about the super bowl, february 13, rams singles and now here we are in the summer and the president in
an election year mind you, the guy who got more votes than anybody in history is not being put forth in terms of doing interviews one on one with anybody at this time and it tells you they are not confident he can get the type of answers that inspire confidence in the america people if he gives answers that are forthright and they have to clean it up like we talked about. with baby formula, that is one topic, one issue parents at home, particularly mothers who may have voted for joe biden or a political or saying i don't buy this, i can't believe i cannot get baby formula for my kid in the same thing with gas prices if you want to drive to the store and buy food, it's more expensive, that will cost you a ton of money. the bottom line is in november, i'll leave it here there's a red tsunami coming because inflation
or gas prices, you can't get baby formula, things you can't spend and therefore the american people will say we need a different direction and those are things this administration seems to be many days late and many steps behind. jon: it seems like the president might want to sit down with a reporter and explain what he's going to do about those problems. joe concha, thanks. a major announcement from shakira as we go around the globe next. ♪♪
