10:07 am
been released on bail following a week of rikers island. jose alba appeared to be acting in self-defense after a man became aggressive in the store over and exchanged all of the head with his girlfriend. surveillance video shows the store clerk fending off the attacker before stabbing and killing him. progressive d.a. alvin bragg's office catching criticism for his treatment of jose alba and standing by with reaction but first we go to david lee miller live in new york city but the latest, david. >> rich according to court documents the convenience store clerk jose alba allegedly stabbed a man who attacked him at least five times. and the district attorney said this is a case of second-degree murder, his family including the mayor said he did nothing wrong. as you point out alba's supporters say a self of growing defense. the case, after seeing security camera video obtained by "the new york post" shows 34-year-old austin simon who was
10:08 am
inside with his girlfriend shoved alba. simon was on parole for assaulting a cop here they fought in much of the struggle is out of camera frame. alba returned home from rikers island jail after a judge reduced bail from $250,000 down to $50,000. prosecutors sought $500,000, but the reduction means "the people in conversation with the defense counsel on this matter to come up with bail package with mr. alba's contacts. the least restrictive to return to court on this serious matter." the d.a.'s office expressed before might not return to the previous scheduled trip to the dominican republic where he was born. and to surrender his passport and up to go to new york city and monitored electronically. mayor adams who made a private visit to the store valid support
10:09 am
for alba. >> and i think it is time for new yorkers and americans to start standing up for a people and follow the law. that is what i'm going to do. speak with the d.a.'s office as it still investigating alba's case. if convicted of second-degree murder, he will face 25 years in prison, rich. >> rich: david lee miller in new york, thank you. anita? >> anita: let's bring in republican new york congresswoman, good of you to come today. this is such a disturbing case that it really does seem like a case of self-defense. i want to put up the headline from "the new york post" on this. number one, you can see free jose. that is the sentiment coming from the newspaper, free jose. they think this whole thing has gone wrong. and then number two, and opinion quote coming from
10:10 am
"the new york post" and they say, "and the current environment, bodega and retail stores are open target for shoplifters and those seeking to hurt store employees. there was no fear or any consequences because the police have made these cases a low priority. it is truly shocking the d.a. has to prosecute mr. alba for defeing himself in a clear-cut case of self-defense. yet congresswoman alba charged with second-degree murder and thrown in jail at rikers island. what is wrong with this picture? >> what is wrong is this d.a. is so misguided and so backwards where he doesn't actually want to prosecute people who commit crimes, but now he wants to go after a law-abiding citizen who acted in self-defense, which is a right of every single american. the real issue that we are facing in new york city and new york state is the fact that people still embolden now, actually by the law put in place by the democrats to make sure
10:11 am
they can enter stores and take whatever they want without paying for it. and the hardworking citizens whose trying to run a business is the one who is suffering. we saw it during looting in 2021, we see it during the smash and grabs repeatedly. now in this case as well with someone thought they could come in and take a bag of potato chips and then came back to us hope the bodega owner when he said "no." >> anita: that was my next question, what is the message the d.a. alvin bragg is sending to other store owners? god forbid they get attacked or rubbed them their own stores. should they welcome the criminals and attackers and so they don't get in trouble with the law? >> that is exactly the message that woke d.a.s and lenient judges here in new york city and across america giving to the perpetrators. that they can go in the stores and take anything they want and they don't get punished for it. on top of that, if they happen to get arrested, they are
10:12 am
released back on the street because of new york's outrageous bayeux laws. you have to commit multiple robberies before they even take you seriously and hold you for a trial. so, it has become a joke. it is unfortunate that people like governor kathy hochul refuses the specifics of bail law and people keep electing these judges and prosecutors who are not serious about crime. >> anita: i want to turn quickly to the economy. pretty decent jobs report out today despite high gas prices, high inflation, choking people. let's look at the numbers, 372,000 jobs, 3.6% and holding yet, we have these numbers to contend with, inflation outpacing wages if we could put that up on the screen. average hourly wages up 5.1% but inflation 8.6% and inflation is winning. the economy sputtering along. congresswoman, your thoughts on this. >> it is a good thing that we
10:13 am
fought and stopped the build back better inflationary spending of $4.5 trillion from passing that joe biden wanted or it would be much worse. but he is desperately trying to convince americans that they call me as, but the problem is every single day come americans are hurting when they put gas in their tanks or trying to put food on the table or try to pay their rent or energy bill. so they know that they are not getting what they used to for the american dollar. they know it is because of inflation and the policies put whereby the democrats. they know they are paying high gas prices because the president evoked everything president trump has done that created energy independence in this country. now, he strategically is raiding our reserves when americans are hurting and sending it to europe and asia? this is completely backwards. the more people that go about everyday life, the more they know joe biden and democrats are lying to them about trying to convince them the economy is
10:14 am
doing well. >> we always hear from this administration the economy is doing great, but the poll show otherwise, right? congresswoman, thank you so much for your time today and happy friday. >> same to you, thank you, rich. >> rich: texas governor greg abbott ordering the state's national guard and state troopers to return those here illegally to the border. sources tell fox the horse patrol agents wrongly accused of whipping migrants have learned their punishment. we will go live to the border. >> the country's largest teachers union voting to spend thousands of dollars to dig up dirt on 25 groups that supposedly attacked gender identity and sexual orientation freedom in schools. parents defending education president calls it an enemies list. we will hear from that next. >> nea we are listening to you, the proposals that we have.

with william la jeunesse and he is here on sat with me digging into this, william, what can you tell us? >> conservatives have been fighting this battle for decades. and every family regardless of where they live or much they make is eligible for about $7,000 a year and a voucher that could be used at any private, charter, or home school like this when you see in phoenix. >> arizona is a model for the nation l. what we have done with this legislation here is the gold standard for other states to take up and we will revolutionize our approach to et centric focused on students, not on an institution. >> governor doug ducey signed the bill on thursday allowing any of the states 1.1 million students to opt out of public schools. get the voucher, and go where they want. >> people know we need change and improvement in case of education and we know if we can empower people and empower parents, they will make better
10:21 am
decisions, especially better decisions than big government. >> teacher unions oppose the bill. they were expected to challenge the law by putting the issue to voters next year. they defeated a similar voucher program four years ago. >> with the vouchers, we can't really determine the students are getting a good education. there is very little academically or financially. our public schools, of course, we are accountable not just for testing but to parents and locally elected school boards. >> rich: it is true there's not a lot of red government tape but they have their own standards. the vouchers cost taxpayers about $4,000 less in the same student went to a public school and expect republicans to make this part of the messaging and midterms in 2024. >> anita: each family would get $1,000 to send their children to the school of their choice or how about a religious school. could they send them there? >> rich: they do qualify. >> i imagine other states will

start with that william la jeunesse, thank you so much, good to see you. okay, rich. >> rich: growing oppositional for teachers union effort to conduct opposition research groups opposing progressive agendas in public schools. nicole neily founder and president of parents defending education. she joins us now. nicole, thank you for joining us this afternoon. i first want to get you on what william la jeunesse was reporting on, this idea that the government is going to be giving parents nearly $7,000 to send their kids to private schools. you heard the opposition from teachers there saying there is no accountability at least with public schools. there is accountability through the public school, people elected. but there has always been opposition to this from many sagging it robs public schools of funding. what is your reaction to that? >> i think it is laughable the teachers union are claiming there was no accountability. let's think about who kept schools closed for two years
10:23 am
working behind the scenes at the cdc. in many cases, it will never be made up. it is impossible to fire teachers. and the fact that they are saying this program is unaccountable is absolute garbage. at the end of the day if parents are not getting what they want from the school, they will walk with their dollars somewhere else. that is accountability. right now parents are trapped in failing systems. most families are able to fend for themselves. >> rich: there is an actual education association large teachers resolution passed allocates $140,000 to create fact sheets on organizations that "actively work to diminish the students rights to honesty in education, freedom of and janitor and teacher autonomy." what is the practical effect of this mending, and how will it present itself in the classroom? >> sure, this is obviously

consent and without them knowing? we have tips of families that find out there schools have support plans. they are transition behind their parents back. parents don't have a right to this information. we know children do better with families involved in medical decisions, period's come up. here are the teachers union and administrators trying to get this a secret and cutting us out of that, i think this shows how out of touch the nea is with the concerns of average parents who love their children. >> rich: paul neely nicole neily thank you. anita all ahead while the pandemic is ongoing and you have years now have children out of school, schools largely reopen e classroom. there is a lot of makeup to do in schools now because of those years of lost learning. >> anita: there is. a lot of those parents who had their kids in public schools who had the means, they took them out of public schools and put them in private schools.

december we will explain what we know. these agents were initially cleared of any wrongdoing. cbp the professional launched a federal investigation. i am told by sources they found in violation and will accuse these agents of poor judgment and unsafe conduct and again, federal sources telling those agents receive proposals for discipline yesterday, which include suspension, unpaid suspension. we will have to wait and find out how severe that potential suspension is and waiting for that press conference at any moment. fitted with multiple times, you mentioned this off of the top yesterday texas governor greg abbott with an executive order that will allow texas troopers and national guard soldiers not only to apprehend illegal immigrants but bring back to the border and return them at u.s. force of entry. they will not be deported back to mexico but they will be

10:34 am
we just heard from bill melugin. they are being accused of poor judgment and unsafe conduct. there will be unpaid suspension up to 14 days. but what exactly, in your opinion, did they do wrong question what >> so, this is sog that often happens. they will go through the criminal investigation and break it down. the administration will look into it and see what went wrong. we are going to have to who wait and see what those repercussions are going to be. but the bigger picture is, we would not be speaking about this today. we would not have press conferences or anything if it wasn't that the president of the united states came out and pretty much made the agents valence without the investigation having even been started. and i think that is the bigger
10:35 am
problem here these individuals were having to go through the entire process and reviewing others in the executive branch who is the head of the executive branch. you have to look at it, and he's the boss. if he is saying these agents are going to pay, something has to be done. it puts other individuals in a corner and say, now we have to come after these agents even if we don't find anything. we will have to wait and see what the investigation will show but at the end of the day, the problem is that. you can't go out there and put a public statement outcome especially as the president of the united states and make individuals villains without seeing all of the evidence to begin with. >> anita: so images taken during the incident. we have images and video show border patrol agents on horseback trying to block the migrants from coming to the u.s. in one case grabbing the shirt of a haitian migrant appear at the office of inspector general declined to press criminal chart seems they are not off the hook yet. it sounds like you are saying,
10:36 am
they are going to be punished just for the sake of being punished. i don't want to put words in your mouth, but what is this doing to morale among border patrol agents who are already fighting such a tough battle at the border? >> look, the morale is already down in the down spirit this is just, you know, that extra that shows the people that are in charge really don't have your back. when they go through a fine-tooth comb on something that is an incident that has been reviewed and that they have seen. okay if they go back and say, there was something in training that was different from i understand it. you can go back and say, hey, look, that is all understandable. but to come after the agents with discipline, especially when it is something about losing money and coming off of the line, having days off, something permanently going to be on individuals records. i think that is just, honestly, that is overkill. and it just shows nothing more than a witch hunt. >> anita: we have an
10:37 am
opportunity to hear from the agents in question here? will they opportunity to react to whatever the punishment is going to be? >> so, the way the process works is once they give any type of discipline that they want them to receive, then we will review the national border and review it and see and prepare an oral reply within the agency. then at the end of the agency, they will look at the case, look at the replay and what stands and what doesn't stand or lower the charge or whatever it may be. so, it is still going to be a little longer process, but at this point, we will have to wait and see exactly what they are trying to discipline them for. >> anita: all right, we will hear something in the next few minutes here. art del cueto, thank you for your time. i really appreciate it. >> thank you. >> anita: so, rich, we are waiting for a press conference

11:10 am
hawaii. why is that important? you have hypersonic missiles. those things travel. the chinese mock nine and for people out there that is 2 miles a second. we have no defense against them. why is that important? a range of 1500 miles that can create a huge orc to the battle or see assets towards china. they continue to grow militarily and they have more military capital than we have total ships in the u.s. navy. so they continue to grow and they continue to threaten taiwan. it is no small thing. when you penetrate air defense identification zone, another country, that is a threat. they are a silent partner with russia in the u.k. as well. >> rich: i want to get quickly to president biden right now who is speaking about foreign prime minister alba. he is signing the condolence book right now that appears to be the japanese embassy here in washington, d.c.
11:11 am
the president biden doing so. you know, general, we were going to talk about this and you mentioned off the top of the segment. the prime minister who was assassinated last evening, really one of the few american allies my top ally with japan to maintain such a solid relationship with president trump. it was a good personal relationship and the relationship between the two countries remains solid at that time. what did he mean to the u.s. japanese alliance? >> well, it was huge to the united states and that alliance, it was very pro-taiwan. very pro-u.s. trying to change the constitution of japan to create from self defense force to a military force. he is aggressive lee and very conservative, very aggressively moving to japan in this current century. he knew that china was a great risk. i will tell you, the chinese fears and have always feared
11:12 am
japan. they have been one of the major competitors and alba was supporting the united states. and in japan as well. he's just been a great friend and a great person. i was fortunate enough to meet him a couple of times. a great sense of humor. he loved to golf with president trump. overall, a good man, a good politician and it's a real loss to the world and a real loss to the region. >> rich: the importance of japan becoming more of a focus in the last administration and this administration. to confront the issues with china. and that relationship -- i want to get back to that conversation very quickly. when you look at what the united states is spending militarily, it spends more than i think the next nine countries in defense. but you are the value that china is getting and spending in the previous segments. u.s. spending $20 compared to china's $1 and certain metrics of efficiency. impeding certain weapons in the united states. but what is the u.s. doing
11:13 am
wrong? >> part of it is the reason is they are stealing all of our technology. when i was out in the business world, we were a threat from china stealing the technology. they continue to do it. we know for a fact they have stolen every senior weapon system that we have in the inventory. they have been able to penetrate our systems and get some of that information either through contractors or through straight draft pier they operate much differently than we do. we have to understand that began to grow. part of our problem, honestly, rich is the fact we spent 20 years focused on the middle east. 9/11 wars we call instead of focused on china. and what is happening in the ukraine and europe, very important. we need to focus in on china peer that is our greatest adversary pier that will be the adversary that we will see ten, 20 years with the roof of their military and growth of economics as well. if something we have to keep an eye on. >> rich: i want to ask about ukraine as well.
11:14 am
how much has that been a distraction? the u.s. pivoting to a show for a decade and not completed that pit of it. how much is ukraine drawn from the attention? >> a lot, rich and that is my fear not only monetarily but militarily as well. we are spending a lot of money there over $50 billion there and close a satellite that we have is the brits appear at the u.k. only $8 million. but we keep focusing strategically and westerly in that region. and i know ukraine is important but we need to make that pit of it, hard pit of it until the europeans, look this is in your backyard. we will be there to support but we need to move somewhere. we are the greatest adversary growing daily, weekly and monthly basis. that is china. we have to do that thinking hard strategically. i don't see this administration doing it at all. they seem to be running around and think it is a strategy and it's not. they need to pivot towards them. >> rich: keith kellogg,

11:22 am
punishment for these agents? >> good afternoon to you. cbp wrapped up a press conference a short time ago where they announced initially after a ten month investigation, they found no evidence whatsoever that any haitian migrants were whipped or struck by these horseback patrol agents. however, they identified four agents targeting for discipline accusing these agents of unprofessional conduct and working in an unsafe manner. they are identifying one of horseback agent with a say use derogatory language during this incident and allegedly worked his horse and an unsafe maneuver around a child near a ramp. they identified several other horseback agents who they say were using "the threat of force to drive migrants back into the rio grande." those agents have now been notified of potential discipline. i'm told by multiple federal sources, those agents receive
11:23 am
those disciplinary actions yesterday. they include unpaid suspension up to 14 days. take a listen to what the cbp commissioner chris said a short time ago when it comes to the allegations of whipping, that false narrative. take a listen. >> we found no evidence for the border patrol agents involved in this incident struck any person with they are rains intentionally or otherwise. and you will remember days after the incident happened last september president biden got up to the podium and talk to the american people where he falsely accuse these agents of "strapping people." what he saw horrified him and he promised, "there will be consequences. these people will pay." the commissioner was asked about the comments. did they add political pressure to the investigation? he said, "no, he didn't. investigators worked independently."
11:24 am
these agents were whipping people, cbp said that narrative was foals. maxine waters was saying those images were worse than what we saw during slavery and alejandro mayorkas said it was a horrible image and president biden said those agents were strapping people and there were consequences. it appears they are trying to have consequences on the agents but not for whipping migrants appear they will go after them for unprofessional work conduct and working in an unsafe manner. again i'm told by federal sources, unpaid suspensions are on the table with his potential discipline. the border patrol union said they will defend these men vigorously. i'm told these agents will have a chance to respond to the allegations and they will be able to fight them if they decide to do so. i will send it back to you. >> anita: i don't think the commissioner could have been in a clear, bill, no evidence of intentional whipping or striking haitian migrants. so, there you have it.

11:26 am
the president seems to no longer feel any sense of restraint to be accurate or even fair to the justices who he'd announced as extremist. but that justices then talked about the history of abortion including the early law governing abortions in england and the united states. that is entirely untrue. the majority -- but also the president is focusing on rights already protected. he talked about protecting the right of women to travel interstate across borders. that is already protected. that is like saying i will protect men from indentured servitude. like been there and done that. this has already a protected right. in fact, justice kavanaugh said in his concurrence there are certain easy questions. he was trying to cut off this sensational claim and said i'm
11:27 am
of course, women can cross borders to conduct any type of business, particularly medical needs. and he is one of at least two, including chief justice roberts views it that way. i suspect more conservatives would sign onto that pier there is a majority on the docks court that says that is protected. where i think the administration is going to get into difficulty, they follow through on some of these calls. there are a lot of activists raging or talking about a type of rage gap. they don't feel the president is furious enough. and i think he tried to fill that gap today, but they want him to go forward and actually be more aggressive in using federal resources to support abortion services. that can get him into trouble with the hyde amendment. that can get him into trouble with congress. i'd amendment is a long-standing
11:28 am
amendment to prohibit federal funds for abortion services. he was a young supporter of the hyde amendment. as a senator he voted repeatedly to refuse for or. which made his comments to dave particularly curious. >> this is something in a number the left have been criticizing in the white house not prepared for this to happen. not only a leaked opinion and plenty of people saying with ruth ruth bader ginsburg died, this would come down the road but do you think the white house didn't prepare or there is no options or very few options for them to roll out? >> well, i think it is the latter appear in the white house is fully aware that the court just sent this issue back to the state. that is where this issue belongs. it did not say how people should decide the abortion question. it simply said that when they decide, that is the right to do
11:29 am
so in the states have already spread across that spectrum. you have states like colorado supporting right of abortion all the way up to birth to a 9-month-old baby. you have got others that are eliminating the right to abortion except to save the life of a mother. most people fall in the middle, which is interesting but the president said, by the way about extremism. recent harvard poll shows 72% of the people give support limited 15 weeks or less. and only 10% support of this type absolute definition of abortion that has been coming from the democratic leadership and represented in states like colorado. >> rich: jonathan turley live this afternoon, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> rich: anita. >> anita: so if the presidents abortion action a hail mary attempt to rally the pace common

midterms? democrats are frustrated with the presidents performance. let's bring in fox news host brian kilmeade. brian, always good to see you, especially on friday. you always have your finger on the pulse of the american public. a very good jobs report out today. i've heard some analysts 800,000 more than expected. but everything else seems to be going south. let's take a look at a couple of polls talking about the president's approval rating. his recent monmouth poll shows most of the country 88% of americans believe the country is on the wrong track. brian, that is not just republicans but a lot of democrats too, right? >> absolutely and always great to see you, anita. is there anything you can't do? but now at least we are in the studio together kind of. first off on president biden he keeps saying good job numbers today. there has been a lot of people hired since he took over.
11:31 am
but pretend as if he doesn't know coming out of a pandemic was only necessary to go to work and everyone else was told to stay home and get paid anyway. so i think we should start with some fact base truth in hey, i know we were coming back but exceed expectations, 3.6% is even better appear this is what i can do to bring down inflation rate. that is the number one issue. when he talks about abortion, overseas to the g7, which i understand was preplanned. he could have waited a day and address his base, perhaps, to take some action. but the supreme court decision as john brought up was telegraphed and written in february, leaked in may. they could have had a plan. most today, jonathan, was based in myth. so he was saying he was going to do things based on a strategy that is not going to happen. nobody will be hunted down for a background check to find out if
11:32 am
you had an abortion to be prosecuted. nobody is going to say don't use contraception. don't marry somebody in your race. nobody is going to have a problem if you actually relocate. this is abortion going to the state. that is it. so the president going in ridiculing the supreme court doesn't have anything to do or play into the fact jeff kavanaugh can't go to dinner. he had to leave the back of the steak house because protesters were outside if you are not only is his family harassed at home, but they can't go out to eat. don't tell me the president of the united states does not play into that. above all, the democrats if you see these numbers, they feel takes way too many days off and schedules way too much. he will take another two days off. >> anita: a lot of people thought it was in bad taste the president to go overseas and criticize the supreme court. appearance on now, the president assigned this executive order tt
11:33 am
access for women across the country, but you look at the polls and we have another one we can bring up, abortion is number five on the list of concerns people have pure look at this inflation 33%, gas prices, the economy, everyday bills, and then abortion. so, you know, they are making this a big plate in the midterm spirit but it seems like these other issues, kitchen table issues are far more important for more people at this point. >> a couple of things are happening as i look into the camera. you and i depend on the teleprompter. we kind of depend on our writers. his staff is terrible. they know these troubles if they move too far away, they put a line. they know the president of the united states will do exactly what he said he was going to do. he actually outlined and repeat the line. so at some point, either incompetent or tried to destroy him and embarrass him on a
11:34 am
regular basis. number two about what you said to them if you talk about roe v. wade going to the states and it's not radical and you have an opinion, but if you go and say "they are taking away your freedom and it is male dominated white society to tell women what to do with their bodies," they will put you on a registration and put you in jail and abortion in the state and then you come back to a state that doesn't allow it. all of this stuff is not true. so they create these scenarios to motivate people to do what he said at the end of the speech and that his vote. you don't have to insult us by inflaming us as if you had a speech written on madison avenue to market or advertise here they should be -- they should be impervious to all those things. the president of the united states is flailing. there is no mission statement, there is no game plan, no action plan, and there is not a lot of energy. and i thought one of the best
