count that out and you can't count out the ruthless ambitious this woman has appeared she will take the chance that she has. >> exactly. we will be watching it, great to see as always.ng thank you for joining us and we will be back next sunday on "the next revolution" where it will be televised. ♪ ♪ >> todd: a 15-year-old shot and killed as chaos erupts in the streets of washington, d.c. the gunshots coming through celebration and a crowded juneteenth event sending three others including a police officer to the hospital. you are watching "fox & friends first" on this monday morning. i'm griff jenkins. >> carley: i'm ashley strohmier and todd and carley have the day off. a night of fun ending in an act of violence that claimed the life of the teenage boy. >> he was screaming out for his mom.
1:01 am
and nobody was able to help him, it was like it bothers me. and i think here i never thought it would have been in d.c. >> ashley: jackie ibanez to live with the details about the shooter, jackie. >> the shooting taking place i'm permitted juneteenth event washington, d.c. the eyewitnesses were next to the police officer and the scene was pure chaos. listen. >> i was sitting next to a cop and shots rang out he did not want to stay down. he proceeded on. we were trying to enjoy ourselves, the crowd running back and forth. >> ashley: the police officer one of at least three people injured in the shooting. a 15-year-old boy was killed as the police tried to break up the event after two fights broke out in the crowd to. >> mpd number shut the event them because shut the event down because it appeared the event was unsafe.
1:02 am
there were several people injured as a result of their legs or ankles being trampled as they tried to run from the area. when you have large gatherings in a dense area, all it takes is one person to introduce to a situation that makes it deadly. >> ashley: more than 100 metro police officers on the scene during the event and called coachella and described as advocacy festival amplifying the culture of washington, d.c., up say the officers recovered a gun before the shots were fired up you washington, d.c., mayor muriel bowser slamming justice and calling for justice. >> we have a child who was killed today at an event that did not have any proper planning here at the chief and i will continue to make sure we have the resources we need on these corridors and all of our corridors, but we need some accountability here. >> according to the d.c. police chief officers did not fire a single round during the incident.
1:03 am
no arrests have been made so far this morning, griff and ashley. >> griff: ashley, thank you very much. now let's bring in former federal prosecutor jonathan fahey who served in the homeland security and the trump administration. thank you for getting up early for us. here we are, another senseless act of violence, young boy killed and it's not an isolated incident and the district. violent crime up 12% and homicide 13%, robberies 33%. what do you make of this? >> it is a tragedy, but sadly, this is predictable that things like this will happen and continue to happen. i think to your point about the homicides going up, i think you said 13%, that is already up over last year, which was a 20 year high. so the crime rate is skyrocketing. what we really see out of this is no one is taking the crime
1:04 am
issue seriously. the police cannot recruit in d.c. and i think the numbers are a couple hundred below where they want to be but they cannot get the police to do the job because of the anti-police movement which frankly led by this administration in washington that everything is anti-police pro criminal instead of locking up criminals who are attacking police. more will happen as the summer heats up. it is going to be bad. it is time to change policies and time to take those crime issues seriously. >> ashley: jonathan, several legal firearms recovered during this early in the night and one firearm had extended magazine. then you heard muriel bowser said there was no proper planning for this. do you think that if there was upper planning for this, this could have been avoided? >> i don't know what she really means by what proper planning would be because even if this event had been planned or
1:05 am
permitted doesn't mean somebody couldn't go in there and commit a crime. so i'm not sure exactly what she has in mind or what normally is done in these situations, but it doesn't seem to make that much sense to me. the issue is crime and criminals and muriel bowser is not taking the crime issue seriously. she presided over this massive crime increase and always trying to find other things to blame it on other than not enforcing the law or not prosecuting criminals. >> griff: jonathan you talk about muriel bowser, there is a primary here in the district tomorrow and four king four candidates running for mayor. may your are running for a third term in the four candidates asked a question in a questionnaire, two of the four . muriel bowser said yes. are the cities like washington not willing to take it seriously to give the police the tools they need to get this crime under control?
1:06 am
>> yeah, the short answer is yes but they are not willing to adjust. they are not willing to go back against anti-police movement that is frankly dominated the democratic party. even when muriel bowser and i'm not sure who the other candidate was that said they will increase the police were fronting or whatever it is, the issue is supporting the police, not funding the police. we've had this anti-police movement accusing the police unfairly of being racist and the whole system being racist and relieved that makes it impossible for them to do their job effectively and also impossible for them to recruit new police officers. so the short answer is yes, they are not willing to treat this issue seriously. and unfortunately, we will see more tragedies like we had this week and because of it. >> ashley: let's talk about the biden administration is exploring ways to bus illegal migrants to u.s. towns hours away from the border. i want to read this quote. this is a letter to alejandro mayorkas and brought
1:07 am
to my attention scouting out locations in texas for the release of illegal immigrants here at the welcoming community but totality has not volunteered for this mission nor are they responsible for the burdens of the border crisis. what do you think is going to happen because when you see small towns like this in comparison to dallas or houston, this will put a lot of stress on the smaller communities that are probably already having issues as it is. >> yeah, you are exactly right. and you really have to marvel at the commitment this administration has with his open borders policy and speaking about not taking issue seriously. the strength this will put on communities when you look at health care. when you look at education and other issues, it is tremendous and it seems like the department of homeland security just wants to operate as basically a
1:08 am
service for illegal immigrants. you come to the border and the city of your choice with a free phone. it is really just astonishing that with all that has happened that again just like the crime issue they will not reverse course because so committed to open borders agenda. they will do everything to encourage people to come here illegally. ends and the sad thing about this, there is so much attention on processing illegal immigrants and very little attention put on preventing terrorist from coming through, preventing drugs from coming through and other things that affect the safety of the well-being of the community's. >> griff: that is a great point. there have been 50 criminal migrants intercepted at the border that hit the terrorist screening database. i want to ask you as we run out of time jonathan come as a former director of i.c.e., the abolished i.c.e. slogan campaign. but i ask you now what has transpired in the last 17 months
1:09 am
of the biden administration, has i.c.e. essentially abolished? >> in a lot of ways, yes, because they are disgorged every respect from enforcing immigration laws. every policy makes the orders to my card or four's immigration laws encouraging more illegal immigrants and use salty issue issue recently with the border patrol agents and this administration has been clear if anyone wants to enforce immigration laws, they will be punished and their careers will be harmed. that is the message they put out there. isis prevents them from doing their job because again so committed to open borders they don't care about the consequences and consequences to communities, consequences to public safety, by way of terrorism or other crime. it is really astonishing that they won't take this issue even slightly seriously. but i think in some respects,
1:10 am
i.c.e. is not able to do their job and they don't want them to do their job which is really sad to. >> ashley: jonathan a lot to discuss this monday morning but we appreciate you getting up early with us, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> ashley: now today in california, that the public mourn the loss of two killed in the line of duty. officer joseph santana lost their lives in a shooting after confronting a suspect in his hotel room. on saturday, there was a big turnout at a vigil with their sacrifice. and two decade veteran of the force. santana was just a rookie officer. the police posting for a father's day tribute to the fallen heroes. both leave behind a wife and children. the d.a. george gaskell given the light sentence for prayer charge and allow him to be on
