Zero eight zero eight one zero follow me on Twitter. Send me your tweets. I what a day are coming up in about twelve minutes. We've got David Katz. Former assistant United States attorney. To talk about the constitutionality about this new national aid -mergency as declared by the president of the United States of America. Congressional correspondent for the New York Times nNcholas fan does is gonna join me as well. And a little under thirty minutes. What happens next? And I wanna take your calls too. Because this was a wild morning at the rose garden with the president declaring after five minutes of prefatory statements, which was really odd. If it's a national emergency went you immediately go in I don't know like presents beforehand. And say all right. Here's what's going on. Folks. We got a problem. We're being run on the cartels. The Zayd is moved into Texas, New Mexico. Arizona they have taken over territory in the southern United States of America. Oh my God. We have a foreign power who has invaded. We have a national emergency. I cannot wait for congress to act, although in that case, congress would actually act in a very rapid fashion as we saw after nine eleven, and if it was very bipartisan coming together to authorize use of military force to go after the terrorists. But here we have no such thing. The facts are very clear and simple. The facts are very clear and simple. Crossings on our southern border was over one point six million in the year, two thousand it's been steadily down had some little bumps up steadily down slightly up now about three hundred ninety thousand weight one point six million in the year, two thousand three hundred ninety thousand now you see what that trend line looks like right down dramatically. Okay. The drug enforcement agency itself. Customs border protection DA have shown it is seven in eight seven eighths of the illicit drugs coming into the United States. Come through the ports of entry seven eighths. Interdicted by the coast guard. I that aren't interdicted beforehand seven eighths, according to the DA and the Trump zone, DNC BP mind, you come through the ports of entry. And I mean, shall we continue the crime rate of people who are not native born as lower etcetera, no way diminishes angel moms, and what has happened to them that in no way diminishes what happened to the Stanley family that in no way changes how we feel about anybody who has been a victim of a crime in any way, shape or form. But the facts are the facts, and yet the president chose to ignore all the facts admitted as such in the speech today at the rose garden admitted as such. And is going tomorrow Lago this weekend while there's national emergency seeing if there's a national emergency would you go tomorrow Lago to go play golf? Go hang out with your pals, drink and cavort. No, typically, not if there's an actual emergency. And actual which is is not Trump himself admitted. I wanna play a little clip for you from this morning's, I don't know what you call. This thing that happened at the rose garden national emergency declaration moment, where President Trump himself. Yeah. President Trump himself said. Different ways. It's not that urgent. But he wanted to make listen to his actual words around this take a listen this from this morning at the rose garden. This is the president of the United States of America talking. I want to do it faster. I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn't need to do this. But I'd rather do it much faster. And I don't have to do it for the election. I've already done a lot of wall for the election twenty twenty. I couldn't I didn't need to do. It this way. I could well, then it's not a national emergency. Boy, are you in trouble. When you go to court get a fair, shake, they'll give you a fair shake. They'll give you a fair shake, and you're gonna lose you're going to lose like a loser. You're gonna lose like the sixteen Republicans who ran against you as a twenty sixteen Republican primary. That's the way you're gonna lose. You're gonna lose all the way through the supreme court. Because as we found there's gonna there are limits to what you're going to be able to do let's take this a step further, though, what are these facts, he uses I do we have time to listen to that that exchange with Jim Acosta and the other reporter followed up take take a listen to this. Because this was the most amazing thing this was after he was done. He was taking questions from reporters on unbelievable how he admits. I just make stuff up and throw it out there. He essentially admits that take a listen. Yes. Jim acosta. Thank you, Mr President. I wonder if you could comment on this disconnect that we seem to have in this country where you are presenting information about what's happening at the border calling it an invasion talking about women with duct tape over their mouths and so on and yet there's a lot of reporting out there. There's a lot of crime data out there. There's a lot of a department of homeland security data out there that shows border crossings at a near record low. But it still undocumented immigrants eight meetings. Lower levels shows undocumented criminals are undocumented immigrants committing crime at lower levels than native born Americans. What do you say, you don't you don't really believe? That's what you really believe it. Federal I believe I believe in facts and statistics. Let's go. Let me ask you this. What do you say to your critics who say that you are creating a national emergency the year concocting, national emergency here in order to get your wall? What do you think you think I'm creating something ask these incredible women who lost their daughters in this sons? Okay. Because your question is a very political question because you have an agenda your CNN your fake news. You have an agenda the numbers that you gave a wrong take a look at our federal prison population. See how many of them percentage wise? Are illegal aliens. Just see go ahead and see. It's a fake question. Yes. Go ahead. Thank you, Mr President just to follow up on that you unifying crime reporting statistics numbers from your own border patrol numbers from this government show that the amount of illegal immigrants are down. There is not violence on the border, and that is most islands and there's not as much violence. Six people finish the please let me finish a question weeks ago. Twenty six people were killed. I understand what you're mile away from where I went I under. I was there. I understand. That's not the question. The question is do we forget about that? No. I'm not forgetting that. I'm asking you to clarify where you get your numbers because most of the DA crimes reporting statistics that we see show that drugs are coming cross at the ports of entry that illegal immigration is down and the violence is down. So what do you base your legs come on? Let's go. Seconds. You get one you get one. Wait, sit down sit down could you? Please. You get one question. I get my numbers from a lot of sauce like homeland security. Corner right from homeland security are a disaster. And you know, what else is a disaster. The numbers that come out of homeland security Pearson for the cost that we spend and the money that we lose because of illegal immigration, billions and billions of dollars a month, billions and billions of dollars based on and it's unnecessary. So your own government stats are wrong. Or you know, I use many stats could. With us. Let me tell you you have far worse than the ones that I use. But I use many stats, but I also use any homeland security. Our next women many many many, we don't know what the stats are. Nobody's ever heard of them. But yeah, I mean, I use many our right? What is this going to look like constitutionally, how do we move forward legislatively? This is such a weird situation to be in former assistant US attorney, David Katz joins me next for one five eight hundred eighty eight ten I know it isn't true truth.
