joined by griff jenkins in washington. >> good morning. i am sitting in for the amazing todd piro and it is so exciting to the vehicle for fourth of july. one nation, under god, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. this is certainly one of the holidays that i think america should rally around because it is an important one and when -- a lot of people already partying. >> ashley: absolutely. and i was able to go to one of the biggest fireworks shows in the country. it was on long island, new york. we will be showing you some of that. some of the highlights. we also have dennis been on coney island because she will be judging the product eating contest. the next few hours are going to one-stop shopping. we have some news to get to. >> griff: let's get right there. president biden is set to
deliver his seventh fourth of july address -- second fourth of july event. >> ashley: his approval ratings are thinking. and just a few months before the midterms no less. market is live in washington with the details but happy fourth of july. >> reporter: happy fourth of july. i wish we were in nashville. people are having a good time on broadway. the president is due back this afternoon for the official white house so patient and more critics are slamming to person for the state of the country under the country under the fourth of july, the president since there has been some extra ordinary progress. you look at the polling, voters may not feel the same way. the latest survey finding that only 39% of people approved of the president's job performance down sharply from a year ago. take a listen to what the president also had to save one year ago. >> president biden: of the past two years, we have lived through some of our darkest
days. now i truly believe. >> mark: when it comes to the economy, the president is. >> brooke: their a positive spin on things. he wrote that we put america in a position to tackle the problem of inflation. the problem is republicans in congress are doing everything they can to stop my plan to bring down costs. the inflation rate is up sharply from when depressed and took office. however, other countries including u.s. allies are dealing with inclusion as well. voters in this country more likely -- what is happening at home. some political pendants confirmed it could also expel major trouble for democrats dystopic. we heard from -- if democrats are able to salvage they will need unforced errors by republican candidates and very shallow recession. the white house insists the recession is not and met --
inevitable. the point that that every local and implement rate as proof that the economy remains resilient even with inflation. griffin, carly. activity. >> carley: thank you. democrats are continuing to backlit with the president but an intense to run for another term former obama dhs secretary says the president should make his plans known before november. >> i know that joe biden has made up his mind to run in 2024. i'm sure at some point that he will have the conversation with his family. my advice would be unconventional. if you are not running to make that announced her -- announcement sooner rather than later. >> carley: kamala harris said biden was running that she would be is ticketmate. she ended up walking back to comments days later modifying
them. and kevin said america would that if it from a new faces on the ticket there. >> a turning point elections that are before us matter more than it may be most in our lifetime. but ultimately, we have all been around washington enough that we should not ask a bunch of prospective candidates to read that white paper and sometimes i think our best view is thirsting for new ideas. the country, the citizens of the country now that we are on the wrong track 75% of them, even at a time like now with full employment, the country is on the wrong track. consumer sentiment. so there has to be a bottoms up movement and hopefully this gives just a bit of a positive framework to think we can do this. >> carley: major headline. a new u.n. report reveals that u.s.-mexico border is deadlier than any other land crossing in the world to.
>> griff: as the investigating could use the dhs as a country is facing intense criticism for making a shocking suggestion about who is to blame for that tragedy. brooks is here to tell us more but happy fourth. >> reporter: hey, good morning. happy fourth of july to do both. secretary of hunter mayorkas up in to claim migrants for that tragic incident. listening to this. kick. >> secretary mayorkas: we continue to one people not to take the dangerous journey. we saw so tragically in san antonio, texas. one of the possible tragic results of that danger security and so many people don't even make it that far. in the hands of exploitative smugglers. >> reporter: those 53 people are not the only migrants to lose their lives trying to edge of the united states purchased last year, at least 728 people died printed enter the u.s. from mexico. front of the 493 have been
killed so far this year. participants our southern border deadliest land crossing in the entire world. these figures come from a new report by the international organization for migration which the united nations agency that provides services and advice to both governments and migrants. the author of that damming report writing, the number of deaths under united states mexico border last year is significantly higher than in any year prior even before the covid-19. yet the number remains an under camp. andy biggs illustrated just how bad this crisis is by posting this footage from the southern border. watch this. >> after 4:30 in the money, still. you can see behind me and that little group 150 folks right there. and is it is being overrun. anything in the detention center
in the process. they will release these folks into the interior of the country. >> brooke: the international organization for migration says more than 1200 people died while migrating throughout both north america and south america and 2021. carley, chris? >> griff: early on this fourth of july, thank you very much. you know, carley, down at the border last week, i spoke with the governor of how the crisis is impacting america. >> it has never been worse because the numbers are higher than it has ever been. we are not thing to resident list -- lift a finger to do anything about it. the president has abetted one of the state -- actually get many of the states, all of the what a state. it is. >> brooke: and the former director of ice joins us now. jonathan karp thank you for giving up early.
i want to get right into these numbers and the deaths of migrants at the border. they have been tracking these things since 2014. when we had this tragic 53 died in san antonio last monday, i started digging into whether or not they are reporting migrant deaths. and they are not. they have not done it since donald trump was present and look at work to hundred 47. there are 518 not including the 53 so far this fiscal year. why does this administration one to hide this from us? >> well, again, they are always try to you know, hide what is going on, you know, distract from the issue because they know they have caused this issue. they have been everything they can to encourage illegal immigration. and i don't think governor abbott went far enough because this is something the administration -- it is even worse in that. they have created the issues.
they have encouraged this illegal immigration. they want to hide the most horrific aspects of intricate which are the deaths and as the summer heat up, we will see more of this and you'd play some of the country mayorkas' comments and it is standing. the way they are claiming that migrants and everything else. you don't see any sense that they are going to take weak spots ability. or that they are going to change policies and at least. >> carley: president lopez obrador will be visiting president biden on july 12th. the president will have an opportunity to talk about the southern border with him. what should our president stated the mexican president to try and stem the flow of illegal immigration? >> jonathan: well, i think -- but i think he should tell them to support as can to prevent that migrants from crossing into mexico because most of these are not mexican citizens. they are from central america and other countries. so mexico could do a lot to stop this.
but the mexican president i'm sure the retort would be every policy that you have instituted has encouraged illegal immigration. have made it clear that once an olympic -- illegal immigrant gets into the united states, they will not be deported with the exception of the most extreme circumstances. the issue is not mexico. it is our policies here every single thing -- every single thing they have done. making it harder to enforce the law. that is what this is that is what is causing this issue. it is not in mexico problem. it is not a problem with any of these other countries. it is what we are doing here and if he actually wants to change this, he could look internally and change it pretty quickly. >> griff: that is a great point, jonathan park the supreme court ruling in favor of the biden administration to give them the green light. what green light. what do you think will be the end result? will it increase the number of
migration that surging numbers work will include at least decrease it and help get it under control? >> jonathan: well, it certainly is going to increase the numbers because the biden administration was butting to end a policy that would keep people training asylum in mexico and not release them into the country to stay primly. but they have no intention and they do not even believe these are asylum-seekers or legitimate asylum-seekers, which, you know, secretary made kroskin of gave up the game is great when he is saying don't come well, if he is saying, why he's the spicy saying don't come? if? if they are fleeing persecution and torture from the country? because they are now she knows the coast these are not legitimate asylum-seekers. this will encourage more people to come and they -- the entire time, they say, once you get here, we will not depart you. you will receive every benefit making citizens get and you will
not even -- even criticizing illegal immigration is off-limits according to this administration. so it is going to increase. it is going to get worse. we will have more deaths at the border and they will continue to blame other people other organizations, but it really is on them and they need to take some responsibility and take this issue seriously. >> carley: the governors of maryland and virginia are demanding -- and provide security to supreme court justices. after the supreme court's top ranking security officials requested law-enforcement put an end to those protests outside justices' homes. governor hogan's director of mutations and he responded to the supreme court marshall singh amid all this, our state and local law enforcement agencies have been on front lines every day protecting these communities and you say that this whole situation is a missed opportunity for the president to lead. how so?
>> jonathan: well, you know, this is a great opportunity and you talked about it before. with us up in court ruling -- in the present an opportunity to show he is the president of the united states. that he is a leader. he cares for all of the citizens but he is not just a party bus. and he could recognize the legitimacy of the supreme court and also this is a legitimate debate in this country and just delegitimize one side of this debate is really stunning. but it really is -- it is, like you said, a missed opportunity to be a leader because he is a leader for everyone. and the fact, the supreme court is asking the state supreme court marshaled to protect the justices, they are releasing because the federal government is not doing its job and it is amazing to me that they want to step up. they have endorsed this behavior of protecting outside of the sprinkler justices' homes. and these supreme court justices, they have families. they have neighbors and they
have no care whatsoever because they want the proto-stamp protesting and because whether or not it is this ruling or other rulings, this ruling does this really does template these justices and it intimidates other judges as well and is really disgraceful that he can't step up and lead. the department of justice can't step up and enforce that law. they won't even discourage people from protesting outside of these homes and they are leading into the governors. thankfully the governor of virginia and maryland are taking the issue seriously and protecting the supreme court justice victims. >> griff: the justices will soon be on their break. we will see if these protests end organ under control. jonathan fahey, thank you for being here and thank you for your service to our nation as well. >> jonathan: thank you. >> griff: an american hero, herschel willie -- wendy williams will

there have already been almost 300 flight delays in nearly 100 cancellations. the average price of a gallon of gas coming in at $4.8. back to you guys. >> carley: ashley strohmier, take it so much. did you see this? jeff bezos going after president biden for telling gas cavities to lower their prices. writing in part, it is either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics. measures county counsel spokesman john kirby says maisels is off base. >> anybody knows he is plainspoken, and he you exactly what he is thinking and in terms that everyone can understand. i think we obviously take great exception to the idea that this is somehow misdirection. the president is speaking honestly with the emergent people. about what he is trying to do.
>> coming to her boss' defense considering that the billionaire ceo does not understand basic market dynamics. gas stations make no more than 225 cents once their costs are factored in. the president should start taking accountability for his actions. >> it is insulting to the office. he is dishonest. he is not taking credit for his failures. keep shut down the keystone pipeline. he has basically destroyed economy because he sold his soul to become president. he has double down on punishing americans. at all costs. he is not suffering. but american people are suffering. he put the american people last. he put the democratic party first and that is why we are suffering. >> carley: reporting, the legal standing hesitate a steep slide since last year. a big part of that is the president's dismal approval

>> first, it is an honor to be here today. and i want to wish america happy independence day. this is the best nation in the history of the world. i hope and pray for many more holidays. you know that this is not guaranteed. it requires a lot of work. that our citizens will remember the brave men and women who helped keep this nation free. i think really the president's message gets to the bottom line here and it is the fact that the problem in america today is an effective leadership in clear politicians and issued -- usually an effective system that is hurting not only this but americans four. taking our country in the wrong direction. 76% of america believes it is going the wrong direction. he made those comments before the huge debacle in afghanistan. the in action in the ukraine. and all of his economy
decisions, his decisions to hurt our energy sector and more importantly, he has really hurt the safety and security of americans both at home and abroad. this is the real problem that we need to start reading dedicating ourselves to our values and our principles embodied in the declaration of independence and in our constitution and we got to get back to god family community country. >> carley: country is facing so many problems from high inflation, high gas prices, high crime. what does dependent need to do -- the president need to do to address these issues rather than just make excuses? >> don: first of all, he needs to take responsibility and accountability for his actions. he has demonstrated poor leadership and my u.s. senate opponent has been with him 100% of the time. we have a congress that can't get anything done for america to help our economy, to stop the
spending, and to make america safe and secure. this is a huge problem. and taking responsibility and accountability as a leader is the number one thing that you need to do. this is a leadership problem. everywhere i go in that granite state, people are worried about who is going to lead us in the future. this is a great holiday and we should all remember why it is a great holiday and all of the sacrifices that our country has made to get here. but right now, this country is heading in the wrong direction and if it continues, this could be a real problem for america freedom, let that liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. >> griff: such a good point, general. and a recent fox news poll text only 39% of americans have pride in this country. and it troubles me. does that trouble you? how do you turn that around? >> don: it really troubles me. and the reason is we don't have
a national dialogue on god, family, community, country. we don't have political leaders that can stand up and talk about our values and principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. our god-given rights. these things that make this country great. we need to look at our preamble of our constitution, those 52 glorious words that set this country up for success. every single one of those lines is in jeopardy today. it is a simple be looking at that and saying, hey, we want to become a more perfect union. we will need to do this. if we want to establish a justice and ensure tranquility, we have to do this and they are not doing that. they seem to be doing the opposite which is very concerning to me and that is why we need change. >> griff: brigadier general don bolduc thank you for your service. and your message. have a safe and happy fourth.
