11:00 am
>> sandra: a fox news alert, the top republican in the house, kevin mccarthy, meeting with president biden after calling for dhs secretary mayorkas to step down or face impeachment. >> explain to the president what i saw. you can see the videos of these cartels literally shooting
11:01 am
tracers at our national guard. a woman hung because she did not pay the cartel. her feet cut off, put on fire. my expression to the president, too, was it is a different situation now it's become so bad we need to have our own military embedded with the border agents. >> john: on the left side of your screen, riot erupting at a migrant camp steps from the united states where mexican police are trying to clear out hundreds of venezuelans waiting to get into the country. and the right, migrants crossing a river into eagle pass, texas. pressure building on both sides of the border. title 42 set to end in just days. >> sandra: welcome back as "america reports" rolls into hour two. hi, john. >> john: good to be with you again, sandra. stark new warning from border agents who say virtually no one left to patrol the border as battling the cartels fills up 90% of their time.
11:02 am
>> sandra: against that backdrop, texas is suing the federal government now over how it enforces and pursues deportations. that case argued at the supreme court today and far-reaching effects. we will get first reaction from texas senator john cornyn. first this. brand-new at 2:00, over the years new york's push for whacky bans is the stuff of legends and late night comics laugh lines, plastic grocery bags, no which. big gulp was a no-no, crackdowns on soda, salt, cigarettes, any flavor of vapes, but the ban now on track to pass in new york does not have anybody laughing. what amounts to a crackdown on people who want to protect themselves and it could open the door t a convicted killer moving in next door. >> john: progressive city leaders say the proposal is about protecting people, the
11:03 am
fair chance for housing act is designed specifically to protect criminals and make sure they can get a second chance, or a third, or a fourth or, you know, goes on and on from there. it would prohibit landlords from running criminal background checks on people who want to rent from them. mayor eric adams supports the measure, saying nobody should be refused housing because they committed crimes in the past. even critics who support second chances and rehabilitation are furious over a bill they say goes too far. the question, since when does stabbing or shooting another person dead get a do-over. >> sandra: new york city councilwoman is one of the critics and will be joining us live with thoughts in a moment. >> john: alexis mcadams in new york city. any support for this measure? >> hi, john, it depends who you talk to. we did talk with some advocates
11:04 am
that say second chance is important for the people back on the streets looking for a place to live, but it's also backed by more than half of the city council so among those council people it is pretty popular. we are learning lots more about the controversial bill, convicted murderers, arsonists, you name it, they could get into the building with no background check. take a look at the paperwork, the fair chance for housing act, aims to stop housing discrimination for rental sales and leases based off of someone's arrest record or criminal history, but some landlords like kensha, they are fighting hard against this bill. gilbert was attacked by a tenant after she tells me she called the police to report him for animal abuse and said his apartment was a wreck. according to the rent stablization association which represents thousands of landlords in new york city, this bill helps criminals, not new yorkers. >> by eliminating that criminal
11:05 am
background check you can be blind sided by who you allow into the building. >> so landlords could still check the new york sex offender registry but nothing mentioned about out of state registries, important to point out here. so advocates are telling us large numbers of people with criminal histories already live in the city and just because someone has a criminal record does not mean they are not a good tenant. >> over 700,000 people in new york city have conviction records which is about 11% of the adult population. so there are people right now that are living in people's areas, faces and neighbors that have conviction histories, people have no idea about. >> so it's not just new to new york. at least two states and a few cities that have some form of fair chance housing laws, colorado, new jersey, san francisco, so the mayor here in new york city is expected to sign the bill. the office says no one should be denied housing because they were engaged with the criminal
11:06 am
justice system, plain and simple. people are talking about this, and more in a minute. but it's a second bill of its kind pushed through, the last one died last year, we'll have to see what happens with this one. >> john: live from the streets of new york city, sandra. >> sandra: let's bring in a republican new york city councilwoman speaking out against this potential new law. great to have you on set with us. first off, if you are a landlord in new york city and you want t know who you are going to, you know, let into a particular apartment and you want to know what their criminal background is, you can run a check and legally that landlord can decide not to rent to you? >> as of right now, yes. but the city council is now trying to pass this bill which would essentially create a new protected class. and what would that protected class be n criminals, people with arrest records because the purpose of this bill is to basically prohibit housing discrimination based on
11:07 am
somebody's arrest record. so if this bill was to pass, landlords will now be stripped of a right to check the criminal background history of a potential tenant. >> sandra: and the landlord has the discretion, right, to say this popped up and it could be a criminal background and they can decide on their own whether or not to admit them into that apartment, does not mean that necessarily they are denied that dwelling, correct? >> correct. >> ok. so, if they decide that you can no longer run a criminal background check, what do you believe that does to neighbors who will no longer have the ability to know, not that they can do that right now, but a landlord cannot decide who then can live in there, if it is a criminal background on someone they will no longer know. >> i think it creates an extremely unsafe situation for new yorkers, for tenants and landlords. i think they aing to cripple the landlord, the big guy. what they are going to be doing if they pass the bill, crippling
11:08 am
tenants. grandmothers, grandchildren, little kids, women, men, you know, they'll be living right next door to murderers, rapists, and they could be actually in proceedings, in criminal proceedings right now and landlords would not be allowed to check that. >> sandra: is it true the new york city public housing is exempt? >> exempt, how hypocritical. >> sandra: those who defend this say they are all about second chances, and you heard mayor adams saying no one, because they have been in the criminal justice system in the past should be denied housing. well, this is the society, andre west, associate vice president at fortune society, alternatives to incarceration. >> take away from the bill that when we think about people's quality of life, those particularly who have been released from prisons and jails conviction history, one major indicator of stability for them is having housing. having the conviction does not
11:09 am
predict whether someone will be a great tenant. >> sandra: he says having conviction does not predict in anyway at all whether someone will be a great tenant. to that you say what? >> look, we are all about second chances, and we are not against giving people second chances, end though who may have criminal record history from the past. but this bill will totally strip landlords right, there could be a murderer or the rapist in the building and the liability is on the landlord to keep the tenants safe. >> sandra: do you believe this will stand? an eye hope not. >> and important for a landlord to decide who gets to live in the buildings. what would you suggest then, what would you suggest for those who have been incarcerated, a criminal background, suggest a landlord can deny them housing, one major indicator of stability for those who have been released
11:10 am
from the prisons and jails is for them to have housing, so what do you suggest for them if you say a landlord can decide they cannot live in a dwelling. >> we can have that conversation. but this bill is not about second chances, it's about completely stripping the right of the landlord to check, and we need a conversation about those people and needs to be a process. but cannot just allow anyone with a history or current proceedings to just move in. >> you think about the financial background check to go through in the city to get an apartment, and it is rigorous. they want to know everything. got bad credit, you are not getting through the door. but a criminal background is ok. >> and it's ok for them, if it's not ok for them, why is it ok for anyone. >> sandra: back to that point, the public housing in new york city, they can still run a criminal background check and
11:11 am
decide who lives in the dwellings. >> john: how does that make any sense? that the city gets to do it, but private landlords can't. >> sandra: and happening at a time where crime is running rampant in the city and residents here have been fleeing, they don't feel safe, and they would like to see the city is doing something to help keep them safe. this is a move in the opposite direction. >> you pointed out at the beginning all the whacky bans that new york city has undertaken, from soda to salt. add to the list. >> indeed. we will keep watching that. border agents say they are scrambling to prepare for title 42 to end as texas goes on the offensive. the governor has declared an invasion and the state is suing the federal government. that case at the supreme court today and texas senator john cornyn is here. he was there, he'll join us live next.
11:12 am
>> john: actress alyssa milano, people mocking her. >> i open twitter like i'm so scared something is going to come out and hit me. oan from ne. it's called the newday 100 because it lets veterans borrow up to 100% of their home's value. not just 80% like some typical loans. that extra cash can make a huge difference in these times of skyrocketing prices. here's more good news: home values have skyrocketed too. that means even more cash! take out an average of $60,000 to pay down your high-rate credit card debt, consolidate your second mortgage, personal loans, and car loans, and lower your payments by $600 every month. best of all, there are absolutely no upfront out-of-pocket costs with this loan. and even if you have credit concerns, give us a call. the va has granted newday automatic authority
11:13 am
to make our own approval decisions. when lenders say no to a veteran, newday can say yes.
11:14 am
11:15 am
well, we fell in love through gaming. but now the internet lags and it throws the whole thing off. when did you first discover this lag?
11:16 am
i signed us up for t-mobile home internet. ugh! but, we found other interests. i guess we have. [both] finch! let's go! oh yeah! it's not the same. what could you do to solve the problem? we could get xfinity? that's actually super adult of you to suggest. i can't wait to squad up. i love it when you talk nerdy to me. guy, guys, guys, we're still in session. and i don't know what the heck you're talking about.
11:17 am
>> sandra: nervous students returning to the classroom this week. dan springer continues his reporting from moscow, idaho. any movement on the ongoing investigation as the students return to campus? >> yes, sandra, we know they are working on the case, they promised they are making
11:18 am
progress but information has been locked up and so if they are close to an arrest, they are not talking anyone about it, and the dean of students doesn't get more information than we are getting. we did get, by the police station this morning, a lot of activity there. but then we were told that it was just a daily briefing. so not arrest imminent. we are also seeing a lot of police on the university of idaho campus, providing security. there are moscow police officers, state police and a private security company that usually just works big events on campus. i'm told they are providing guards 24/7 now. university officials said student security is their number one priority the last two weeks of the semester. administrators don't know exactly how many students have returned to campus but good to see that many did feel safe enough to come back. the rest of the students allowed to finish up online. one thing is clear. this dramatic event has changed the campus and the people
11:19 am
forever. >> definitely a harsh reminder how challenging this world can be so it's definitely changed people, it's changed me, i know it's changed many of our students and faculty and staff. it's pulling us together as a community, we are feeling that love and support from across the world. >> memorial service for the four victims has been moved inside the football dome on wednesday for two reasons, really. it's too cold outside and they expect a large crowd, not only of students but also faculty and other people who live here in moscow to be a good way for this community to heal and really celebrate the lives of these students even as they continue to pray that the cops catch this killer so they can feel totally safe again here in moscow. back to you, sandra. >> sandra: an update on the ground there in idaho for us, john. >> john: changing gears now to the border crisis, which is even closer to a boiling point. with title 42 just weeks away
11:20 am
from ending, and pressure building on both sides of the border. unrelenting waves bringing with them a related crisis just as serious. deadly blood of fentanyl and other illegal drugs, numbers hard to believe. texas senator john cornyn joins us in a few minutes but team coverage on the ground in texas and washington, d.c. casey stegall starts us off live in eagle pass, texas. migrant processing centers getting full again? >> yeah, john, they are. sources tell us the one primarily located in this sector has gotten so busy that now at times they are starting to divert migrants over to the el paso sector, to be processed and put into the system there. eagle pass here and around dell rio recording more than 9300 migrant encounters in just the
11:21 am
last week. that includes close to 3300 known got-aways, 19 large groups, and four criminal sex offenders. speaking of those got-aways, in other words those who successfully cross into the country illegally and evade law enforcement, that is what frightens them the most because it pertains so much to our national security. >> it's not what we arrested, what worried me is what got away and had no idea what was coming across, i think it's the worst i've seen it in least the last 35 years. >> venezuelan migrants clashing with mexican authorities in juarez after their makeshift camp was shut down and cleared from the riverbanks there. the same place where migrants have been congregating since last month waiting for the expiration of title 42 next month so that then they could be
11:22 am
so close to the u.s. that they could then cross once it expires. john. >> john: and the expiration on the 21st of december, and dire predictions from what will happen after that. casey stegall, as always, thank you. sandra. >> sandra: now to washington, immediate war against fentanyl, alexandria is live in washington. little debate, alex, it's coming over our southern borders. what did the biden administration say they are doing about this? >> sandra, it's interesting. we have heard from the white house, more fentanyl seizures means they are doing their job. republicans say, though, the numbers only reflect the tip of a growing iceberg and that the death toll in this country is the real indicator of what's making it in. earlier today president biden met with congressional leaders as we know, including house minority leader kevin mccarthy, who is hoping to be the next speaker. >> we had an in-depth conversation about the security
11:23 am
of the border and the fentanyl coming across killing our younger generation. >> killing a younger generation. synthetic opioid is the leading cause of death for people 18 to 45 years old. this weekend incoming chair of the house oversight committee, congressman james comer, said it would be the crime fighting focus. >> number one priority with respect to crime in america for republicans is going to be the fentanyl crisis. we talk about terrible gun crimes in america, but over 100,000 deaths because of fentanyl pouring across our border which is unsecured right now. that's going to be the top priority for republicans come january. >> homeland security officials noted they have seized as much fentanyl in the last two months as they did in all of 2019. sandra. >> sandra: alex, thank you. >> john: the supreme court hearing a major immigration case this morning and our next guest was on hand for the oral arguments. texas senator john cornyn joins
11:24 am
us now, a member of the senate finance and judiciary committee and select committee on intelligence. so today's case was the attorneys general of texas and louisiana challenging an order from alejandra mayorkas to prioritize certain illegal migrants for removal, while leaving millions of other illegal migrants in the country alone. what issue do you have with that? >> well, congress has spoken and said particularly in cases where migrants have committed aggravated felonies they must be detained, and the word shall is actually used. and the court was struggling with the argument by the biden administration that shall did not really mean shall because there would be too many, it's too hard, we can't do it, and i think this is a really important case because the biden administration has run up the white flag when it comes to
11:25 am
enforcing our border. you talked just now about the fentanyl crisis, 108,000 american lives last year alone, i'm sorry, all together, 71,000 of those were fentanyl deaths, and millions of people coming across overwhelming our capacity to distinguish between economic migrants, the valid applicants for asylum, or people with criminal records, sex traffickers or drug runners. so, it's out of control and the biden administration is fighting it every step of the way. >> john: what's your sense of what way the court may good on this, based on what you heard at oral arguments this morning? >> well, it's hard to say because there are so many different issues in play. part of this has to do with the administrative procedures act, others withstanding, others with this language that i mentioned a moment ago, so it's a complicated topic but in essence what happened is secretary mayorkas issued a memorandum that undercut the congressional
11:26 am
mandate or requirement that violent criminals be, shall be detained and said there's too many of them, we can't do it. and arguing that they can cherry pick when to enforce a law and when not to enforce a law. that can't stand. >> john: part of what he said in the memo justifying leaving the vast majority of people in the country illegally alone. guided by the fact the undocumented noncitizens subject to removal have been contributing members of our communities for years. they include individuals who work on the front lines in the battle against covid, lead our congregations of faith, teach our children, back breaking farmwork to deliver food to the take and contribute in many other meaningful ways. that almost sounds like de facto amnesty. >> well, it's the biden administration essentially saying we ought to grant amnesty to anybody and everybody who comes across the border and that is not what the law says. and they refused to enforce the
11:27 am
law. why you have heard speaker to be mccarthy say that investigating mayorkas, the secretary of homeland secretary, is going to be one of the first things up in the new republican house. and it needs to be, because they simply have refused to enforce the law and they make this argument that we need people and we do need legal immigrants in this country. we are one of the most generous in the world but don't need the open borders policy of the biden administration, what we are seeing now. >> john: do you support the possible move by house republicans to impeach mayorkas if they did, and they were successful, it would land on your doorstep, likely not go anywhere. >> not a lot of tools available to the congress. i think they need to conduct an investigation, they need to build the record and remind people about all of the failures of secretary mayorkas and this administration, and demonstrate where he is -- has violated his
11:28 am
oath to uphold the constitution and laws of the united states. once they do that, if they do do that, then of course it would come over to the senate for trial but they need to take it in a deliberate, methodical way and open investigation so the american people can see what we see here in congress. >> john: they are promising that will be one of the first orders of business in the new congress. good of you to be with us, thank you. >> thank you, john. >> sandra: fox weather alert, a troubling sign of what is to come to millions of americans. a triangle of storms across several states, spinoff devastating tornadoes. we'll bring you the latest on that storm's path. >> john: air force one touching down in michigan moments ago as president biden looks to tout his economic agenda and even take a victory lap over falling gas prices.

11:34 am
>> john: president biden arriving in michigan, pushing his agenda dogged by criticism allowing chevron to drill in venezuela while pledging no more drilling at home. the econ panel, about you 1st grade -- grady trimble. >> if you look at the fuel sector including oil and gas and coal, it's lost about 30,000 jobs from 2020 to 2021, 3% decline in a single year. the workers who were supposed to
11:35 am
build the keystone pipeline don't understand why the biden administration is pulling the plug on oil and gas projects here at home, while letting chevron drill in venezuela. >> that's probably one of the most frustrating things to me as a worker, you know, in this country, is we are not going to get a lot of oil from them at the beginning but it's the willingness of the administration to invest in another country to help build back their infrastructure, get them up and going. but i guess when you support socialist ideas you support socialist countries. >> since president biden took office, he's been promising more than enough green energy jobs to make up for the loss of fossil fuel jobs. but few of those jobs have actually materialized and if you look at green jobs over the next decade, the bureau of labor statistics says the number of new jobs added will be relatively small. those are their words. by 2030, the sector will create only about 18,000 new jobs
11:36 am
between environmental scientists, solar panel installers, and wind turbine combined. a far cry from the 10 million clean energy jobs president biden has promised and the keystone pipeline workers we have been talking to, john, have not heard a word about what green energy job might be available to them right now. >> all right. and in the years ahead, we'll see what, if anything, might be available, too. all right, grady trimble, thank you. sandra. >> sandra: jackie deangelis, brian bremberg, thanks to both of you for being here. we have a lot to get to. first the exchange with peter doocy and john kirby at the white house yesterday. i'll have you guys dig into this. >> why is it the president would rather let u.s. companies drill for oil in venezuela than here in the u.s.? >> that's not an accurate take on the president's view.
11:37 am
>> earlier this month he said no more drilling, there is no more drilling. >> president has issued 9,000 permits for drilling on u.s. federal lands, peter, nine # thousand of them being unused. there are plenty of opportunities for oil and gas companies to drill here in the united states. >> sandra: plenty of opportunities. wait, rewind to president biden, i'll let you talk -- >> i like this. >> sandra: an important set-up. this is november 6th, the president. >> no more drilling, there is no more drilling. i haven't formed any new drilling. >> sandra: brian, go. >> put your money into drilling when the president says no more drilling? i mean, he made it pretty clear here that 9,000 number is a distraction number. it means nothing because that permit is not good unless you put a ton of money into developing the well.
11:38 am
>> sandra: hold on, hold on. lease and permit are two separate things. just because you have the lease does not mean you have the permit. >> exactly. put a bunch of money in a well that may or may not produce anything and you need to produce for a very long time with a president who says no more drilling? is that where you are going to put your money? i don't think so. >> i want to speak about this venezuela thing, a lot that i think people are not understanding here. administration doesn't think that this is going to be taken well by people and obviously the perception has not been good. president biden did not care when he went to opec to beg the saudis, they refused him and cut production, he's going to venezuela, a dictator and saying we are going to drill there, the dirty oil, we are going to let you profit from this. and if you don't comply with demands we'll be able to pull the plug and that's what they want to do. short-term potential opportunity
11:39 am
to be able to fill the supply gap because they are getting so much heat for it but they want to have a rip cord and pull it when they want to. if they were to say to oil companies go invest, a lot of outrage about that if they actually did it to drill on these 9,000 leases and were told they could not do it. that's the dynamic. >> sandra: the very simple message from the white house, what do you mean, they can drill. this president, they are saying has approved 9,000 leases during this presidency. well, neil crabtree, former keystone xl pipeline workers, on "fox & friends" reacted to kir di saying there are permits available, drill, baby, drill. listen. >> there's a huge difference between the government making leases available and actually issuing the permits. may be 9,000 spots we could drill but the same administration making the leases
11:40 am
available also control the permits and right now the permitting process in this country is, it's ridiculous. a dozen different agencies their hands in it and any one of them can shut you down at any time. >> sandra: makes a lot of sense. >> and when environmentallists sue to get them blocked, does the biden administration fight that? oh, no. you die by 1,000 paper cuts and the biden administration knows that, they are happy to tout the 9,000 number but don't tell you about all the other hassles that they give energy producers in the country, that's a reality, then they turn to venezuela and say why don't you do it. guess what, the green lobby apparently does not care about dirty oil coming out of venezuela. >> sandra: one thing charles payne brought up, great, increased oil production -- we need to refine that into gasoline and we are lacking refinery capacity in this
11:41 am
country in order to continue to supply the energy and the capacity that we are demanding. >> and add to that, all about infrastructure and getting the oil around. you can take it out of the ground but if you can't move it through pipeline, can't take it to a refinery and turn it to gasoline, it's worthless and we have not made those kinds of investments. oil companies are terrified they will spend billions of dollars that go down the drain, he said i want to kill the fossil fuel industry. >> sandra: we played the tape. good to have you here, thank you very much. >> john: tape lives on forever. if you live in the south, hunker down. tornadoes, flooding, into the overnight hours. lower mississippi valley will likely get the worst of it. fox weather's max gordon is live in jackson, mississippi with a story from there. what's the word so far, max, from the emergency officials in this state? >> yeah, emergency managers are saying now is the time to
11:42 am
prepare, the time to be monitoring local news, the radio, of course your fox weather app. and know where your safe place is. we are already seeing tornado warnings popping up, right now we are in jackson mississippi and things are not too bad so far. gusts of winds, very cloudy, overcast, but might say now is the calm before the storm. we are looking at the possibility of long track tornadoes, destructive winds up to 80 miles per hour, and hail the size of tennis balls. all that is possible. emergency officials say today people all over the southeast need to be on high alert, especially those living in mississippi. >> we are actually concerned about the whole entire state. we want all in mississippi to take this weather very seriously because anyone is at risk for a tornado, especially today throughout the night, and i think the nighttime portion, that is what worries us the most because you know, some people may be asleep, some may be travelling. >> emergency managers say have
11:43 am
the notifications on loud so they wake you up in the middle of the night if a tornado passes through. and have shoes and other clothing in your safe place if a tornado does strike during the middle of the night. >> john: looking at the little weather radar on my iphone, a significant patch of storms j out of louisiana toward natchez and into jackson. what size potential tornadoes are they expecting the storm system might produce? >> yeah, we are seeing anything from ef-3 on up. this is very serious. we are seeing a lot of energy here in the atmosphere. it does not feel like november in jackson, mississippi, 74°, a lot of energy and strong storms and strong tornado potential. >> john: the storm system is headed directly where you are.

>> sandra: the pentagon releasing a startling new report on china's military build-up, warning beijing's nuclear arsenal is growing at a record pace as it seeks to challenge the u.s. as the world's top super power. rich has the breaking details from washington for us. so what did the report reveal about china's nuclear ambitions, rich? >> sandra, the pentagon says china could have 1500 nuclear warheads by 2035, and what a senior official says accel eratd
11:50 am
arsenal. and record says in 2020, dod estimated china's operational stockpile was the low 200s. this stockpile has now surpassed 400 operational nuclear warheads. by 2030, dod estimates the prc, people's republic of china, around 1,000 operational nuclear warheads, fielded on systems capable of ranging the continental united states. pentagon says last year china launched 135 ballistic missiles for testing and training, more than the rest of the world combined. >> the challenge here is the more proliferation there is, the more concerning it is, the more destabilizing to the region it is. so certainly we would want to ensure from a regional global and regional stability standpoint that we can maintain an open dialogue. >> also highlights china's
11:51 am
