"For to follow the facts we believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up and cover up that is how speaker Nancy Pelosi this morning prior to a meeting with the president that was supposed to be about infrastructure. I don't do cover-ups after hearing what Nancy Pelosi said, regarding presidential cover up President Trump, abruptly cancelled a meeting with Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer to talk infrastructure. They had both arrived here we have investigations like nobody's ever had before. And there's nothing we did nothing wrong.

And we were we made enormous progress in Bashur lighthizer, and I have literally spent the last six months, negotiating detailed agreement that would take up this whole book inconclusive, that's the finding after our three month investigation into the racist photo and governor Ralph north of nineteen Eighty-four medical school yearbook.

"Really appreciate your tons morning. Good morning. Happy to be here. So we wanna talk about this pilot program that was done in the beginning of the month at two locations along the border in mcallen, Texas, and Pasa, Texas. And we're you took cheek swab from people presenting as, as families, and you found that a third of the excuse me thirty percent of them. We're not families now. Did you only test people that you suspected of not being families or is everyone coming across with a child tested? No. This was not used as a screening tool. We, we did this specifically as an investigative tool to, to help the teams of investigators that are down there at the border working with border patrol to, to work through the, the fraudulent family problem. So it's, it's a technique that can be used when when. Rented. I'll tell you right off the bat. We had many cases where just the mere presence or the possibility of having a DNA test led to people confessing that, in fact, they were fraudulent family now is a family unit allowed to be say a step, parent and child. Is that a possible construction for quote unquote family unit? So the testing that we're using is, is looking at that direct parental relationship until the other kind of or guardian relationships are not considered. So there's a whole host of other levels of documentation that would need to be provided an investigative before we would we would make those determination and earning occasion. That you're going to expand the use of this in any way to try and sort of use it as a catchall for, for people who are claiming to be family units. So right now, we're working to expand the, the current project that started his only a two two and a half. Day pilot and to locations. We're looking to expand this to all the locations where we have homeland security investigations investigative teams and we're gonna continue to look to use it as as an investigative tool, and not in routine, general screening. So this would continue to be an expansion of, of what we just did a couple of weeks ago. So when you have a situation where the test comes back that they are not a family or you have someone who says, okay, you got me. I'm not I'm not the child's father or mother, what happens then do are they deported or they deported together? Does the child's day? How do you handle that? So this is what's, what's so good about this this deep investigative teams as we're focused on the criminality and the smuggling organizations that are behind these fraudulent family units. So we've, we've interviewed approximately eight hundred family unit and we've presented for prosecution total of two. Hundred and forty individuals for smuggling charges and other related immigration charges. Which is a pretty good number for for being operational for a little over four weeks. Yeah. Another great numbers, Derrick Derrick by the way dared banners. The ice current acting deputy director. I want to shift gears and talk about something that's local to us, which is the two teens were just charged with the murder of a fourteen year old girl and Prince George's county. They were in the country illegally last year. They were arrested on tempted murder charges. Your agency issued a detain our request Prince George's county being a sanctuary county ignored it released them. And now, they're now they stand accused of actually murdering a fourteen year old girl. What was your reaction when you found that, that somebody who sought to deport in the first place has now murdered murdered a young girl? Well, me sadly, those, those instances with have tragic consequences attached to them were were more than familiar with these types of cases yesterday. I met with. The team here at ice, the victims of immigration crime. And we were going through a number of ice, fugitive cases, not dissimilar from that, that you just mentioned in, in Maryland, where detainers were not honored, and people that committed serious crimes that resulted in the tragic loss of life or serious injury have fled. And we're, we're looking to locate them wherever they may be and bring them to Justice and hold them accountable for those series crimes. We're very familiar with us and it requires a lot more work on our end. But we're. Very dedicated to tracking these individuals down and, and holding them to account for their criminal activity. What does it say about the leadership of Prince George's counties concern about their own people when they're doing when they're releasing people end up becoming murderers? Well, I mean, I specifically I don't know. But this problem is something that we face across the country and ever leave increasing jurisdictions that don't honor ice detainers for any level of criminality. And so that we're going to have to work the process of from an investigative angle work with our international partners, our law enforcement partners to, to locate and apprehend and bring them to Justice here in the United States. Is there a problem for you to do your job? Is it hard for you to do your job, just because congress won't do theirs, but you have so many shakeups in the administration when it comes to immigration when it comes to is when it comes to DHS. Do you see this finally settling down? We know how the presidents expecting to name Ken coochie to some job at department of homeland security are things starting to finally jelly finally starting to get a team together. So the one thing that remains constant is, is the professional law enforcement officers of ice, nearly fourteen thousand of them from, from ERO HSI that are out there on the frontlines every day doing their job. And they're doing everything that they can to attack this crisis, specifically at the border, the criminality, the teary in, in the United States, addressing, opioids and MS thirteen and, and, and the, the human smuggling organizations that are exploiting children for profit. So we've got great leadership teams in place throughout the enterprise. We welcomed the, the expertise and the help of additional professionals to help bring all of our efforts together to have a greater impact. But they by day, the frontline people vice that are out there doing the job are, are, are at it. No matter what. Tell you, we're incredibly proud of the work. They do. Well, we are too. And thank you so much for the work you do. Derek Benner thank you so much for joining us, you it's eight forty four. Jonathan.

"If they bring they know if they bring a child with them that they basically get walked right into the country. Here you go. What would you like is can we get a pillow for you specific specifically, you like some canapes some cheese platter? So they come across. Everyone comes now as a quote unquote, family unit family unit being an adult with a child, and then you are a family unit. So the beginning of the month. They unrolled a pilot program, and they performed rapid DNA tests on immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the border with children who were not, there's now they get these sneaking suspicion when the interview them and they talk to them, and they, they ask questions, and they have to present papers birth certificates and things like that. And sometimes it just doesn't add up and so they have a hunch. So what they started to do in those cases was performed these rapid DNA tests, and they found. That about thirty percent of them were not related. They were fraudulent families. These were children that these people either were given because they're being sold to, to get people across the border. There are a commodity their families who sell the kids it to two coyotes in order to, to then sell them again or rent them out. Right. The mouse. They recycle them and take them across the border, and then it got a return them. They member, there was a story last month about a three year old who was found in the middle of the desert crying with a phone number written on his shoe. And thank goodness that that customs border patrol excuse. Me found them thank goodness that border patrol found that little child that was just left somewhere because I guess he wasn't used it wasn't necessary. Anymore was he had served his purpose and they found them so they take a cheek swab. And they do this rapid DNA test in some instances, they said, we're ice told. All the adults they would have to take the cheek swab to verify the relationship. They're like, all right. Not me. They're not really related. And they didn't take the DNA admit that this fraudulent in front. I wonder onto. Yeah. We kind of know how to the games play. I wonder I guess this will be a question for Derek Benner when we talked to many thirty five but I wonder if you couldn't just come in and just say, I'm the stepfather to this child, then they don't have a then. It's like you know, is it possible for you to sort of evade? I reason why DNA would matter because then at that point, you're not biologically related, but you still are the parent to that kid in that scenario that I'm inventing, right? Like, you know, because right now, we're hearing about all this coaching going on about people being told, what to say what's to stop somebody from coaching people who wanted to take advantage of our system from doing it in that way. Well, that's going to be the next step suddenly going to be here, as stepfather's or the kids adopted. You know, that's what that's going to be. It's like a game a whack a mole. There's something else that they're able to this pilot program. Only lasted for a few days early this month, and it was only used in mcallen, Texas, El Paso, Texas. And they found a thirty percent. Can you imagine what the real number is if it was only for a couple of days in those two locations? And found that it was thirty percent said that came out that they were not truly family. And those only suspected cases imagine how many through because they had papers and think about the disservice that fraudulent family units are doing to genuine family units, who are who have real claims of asylum. And the reason I say that because you mentioned mcallen, Texas his see these reports coming out now of the immigration detention center, mcallen is overwhelmed with flu there, the sickness is running through that mccowan detention center. Right now in such a way that they are quarantining people and they can't handle the flu outbreak. Of course, not NFC what some thirty percent of people are going to come in and have a fake family and the process. It's, it's it's out of control, and there's no appetite and Capitol Hill to fix it. We'll see they don't wanna fix it for obvious reasons. But a flu outbreak, something along, those lines, some kind of illness, outbreak at a detention center in mcallen plays right into the Democrats hands because then the media says another migrant is under the care of. President trump. You know, that's that's how they will couch. Yes, Trump's fault, but he doesn't get credit for the economy. That's bama's. Right. You know what I mean, the second the kids in custody? Trump killed the kid. Yes, but Trump doesn't get any credit for the economy. That's Obama's doing you find this is how these things work. Yes, I'm so glad you've learned on my coaching is paid off just just one other story regarding immigration and we will speak with Derek Benner at eight thirty five. He's ISIS acting deputy director about this rapid DNA testing. But there's another story that's interesting. It comes out of Mexico and I thought this was so interesting. These there are women, a call themselves widows, the widows of Teke Pulkovo, and in this village in Mexico. You have all these beautiful really big houses stone, and they're may with Finestone facing. They're very well constructed. Nobody lives in them. They say the village is a ghost town. There's nobody in the street in the old houses are women old, folks, and children, and they are the relatives of the men who. Who sent money to build the homes, but never came back. So these are men who, who left back in the two thousands that early turned me the early two thousands of come to the United States and they send money back, but then they eventually start a new life in the United States. Stop sending money back and get remarried and just have another family in the United States in these women are actually issuing a warning to the women from the northern triangle from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, because that's where the immigration is really coming from. And these women are did an interview here and they said, because the migrants pay twelve thousand or more to travel through Mexico, then they pay a one thousand dollar fee to the cartels because cartels control the access to the border and the women in this interview said, I will tell the Central American women to take care of their babies. If your husband has money to make such a long dangerous journey this money should be spent on. On your children. If he has already left, you probably will not see him again except in defeat. Meaning he's only gonna come back if he couldn't get a job. I feel sorry for your situation. Tell your man that it is better to stay at home in his own homeland. The population of this city this, this, this village was growing, and it dropped from fifteen hundred in two thousand five to now a less than fourteen fourteen hundred to thirteen eighty six twenty ten and they say, some Central American regions are starting to see the same thing because a full one percent of the population of Honduras Guatemala, have moved to the US in seven months. One percent of the population. Mostly men. One region in Guatemala, one region of Guatemala lost. Nearly three percent of its population. It's amazing. Actually you see these photos from the border, where they have, like, sort of everyone who who has they would walk across the border. They immediately walking groups, right? Up to border patrol agents. They're fleeing border patrol. There are literally walking up to the border patrol agents and instantly saying the words, I claim a credible fear of violence or when I'm forever. I'm fleeing whatever they say, and then they've taken into custody, the lines of people are all, like adult men and children's standing right next to the kid, and these women wrote, this is a Washington time. She correspondent, Cynthia notes to the Washington Times that she sent to her husband, you said, you're only going for a year now, we're older child is already fifteen years old. I ask you to return to me. They're not returning. Guatemala gets twelve percent of its GDP from remittances on Dorrance. Get nearly twenty percent outsell Salvador over twenty one percent. This is according to World Bank statistics from twenty that's why they never gonna keep. Them home. And what does that mean to us that means that wealth in the United States is being sucked out of our country and being sent to other countries and not being used to energize in charge of our GDP, our economy. And meanwhile, people are actually taking jobs that people in the United States could have, but it, it's so positive because they contribute to society, thirty five Derek Benner from ice joining us, it's now, seven fifteen wwl, traffic,.

"Of mornings on the mall. Joining us now is is acting deputy director, Derek Benner, Derek. Thank you so much for joining us the morning. Thank you for having me. Besides all the obvious problems at the border, the big one that the administration is trying to tackle is this idea of the loophole that they know if they bring a child within that they basically walk into the country, and they're they're home free. That's being advertised in the media down in the northern triangle countries. It's also being a advertising. Newspapers radio ads are being taken out with all this information in it. So you have to combat them you have found fake families. We know that children are being recycled in other words smuggled back across the border back south. So that they can be used again, this is child smuggling and you want to stop it. So you're talking about a DNA tests now on the children coming across to make sure that these people truly are a family. What are the details and is permission based? So you're you're actually correct on on all points. This is a definite crisis at our at our southern border with this phenomenon we've released over one hundred sixty thousand families that have crossed and smuggling organizations have as they do take advantage of these loopholes both in our immigration laws in in also in our capacity to address the crisis, just by the sheer numbers. So we've deployed specialized teams of special agents forensic interview specialists in victim assistance specialists to look at this problem from the criminal investigative standpoint, really attack the smuggling networks that are exploiting the legitimate families that are presenting claims at the border. The DNA pilot is is another of tool set among. Other tool sets that we use in our investigative processes to help us to make those final determinations of as to whether the family presenting is is fraudulent or or legitimate. So what's the what's the typical way to do this? If it's not DNA. So typically we would use like in any smuggling investigation. Whether it's narcotics or human trafficking or human smuggling, the interview process law enforcement information systems. Yeah. Law enforcement observations examination of documents. We specifically in this instance, have said forensic document specialists. So these these folks are scientists they've been trained on on documents. All right or the world when you look for you look for discrepancies in order to establish this. So when so when you say family units because we often get we get the data each month. And it's like how many family units have crossed the border does that mean genuine biological family? Or are people who have sort of faked the process included in that data so both and so just to give you a sense in the last two and a half weeks of the cases that have been referred to our investigative teams. We've seen about a thirty percent occurrence of fraudulent family unit. So these are adults and and miners that have presented with fraudulent documents or fraudulent claims of actually having some sort of parental or family relationship. In many cases, we've seen where even the miners that are being presented as minors are not minors. In fact, there they they're adults as well. We've seen that supported by fraudulent birth certificates and other documents from the northern triangle. So is it possible to just do it as a policy on the on every everybody coming across the border where the kid just do it. And if they know that I think it will test DNA test. Yeah. I think it just cuts down on them even trying to do it even trying to get across because they know oh, the jig is up. It's not just going to be if they're suspicion because they can take their paperwork, then maybe better than they were already doing it now. So so we're starting with a pilot to to look at how this process works and see if it's valuable tool for the investigative process in order to not only deal with the fraudulent family unit at hand. But also look at dismantling and disrupting the smuggling organizations that are that are profiting from this finan, right? So as we evaluate during this pilot, we will be able to make some determinations on what the next steps might be in this in the use of this tool in in a more. Broader fashion. We we still have a lot of work to do in that space. And so we're approaching it kind of incrementally. At this point. We're talking to is acting deputy director, Derek Benner, a Derek I'm Mike I have an interest in finding out what the president means when he said recently that we are beginning to send some of the legal immigrants who are arriving in our borders to sanctuary cities. I believe he said this now on two occasions. What is the status of that? Are we sending illegal immigrants, the sanctuary cities, and where we sending them, and how are they getting there? So I mean immigrants are I mean, these folks are are transporting themselves to sanctuary cities. So if you look at the number one hundred sixty thousand people released as the border in some occasions to our NGO partners and other cases, not I mean, they're making their way to sanctuary cities and other places in the interior. We're not currently resource appropriately to to you know, expand any of that capable. Ability for us. So if they're transported for detention or immediately removed and the other option at the moment is released. But I think, you know, the the the critical point here is that thanks where cities are a significant poll factor for for these people to make this trip and create these fraudulent family units thinking that if they can get by frontline DHS law enforcement personnel at the border, then going to a sanctuary city will somehow reduce their potential for being a dentist and ultimately removed. I still think you should handle little travel, brochures, listing all the sanctuary cities to make it easy for them. Derek benner? Thank you so much for joining us. We appreciate your time. Thank you very much. You're listening to the best of mornings on the mall five to nine Monday through Friday, only one.

So these these folks are scientists they've been trained on on documents all right for the world, and you look for you look for discrepancies in order to establish this. So when so when you say family units because we often get we get the data each month. And it's like how many family units have crossed the border does that mean genuine, biological families or are people who have sort of faked the process included in that data so both and so just to give you a sense in the last two and a half weeks of the cases that have been referred to our investigative teams. We've seen about a thirty percent. Occurrence of fraudulent family unit. So these are adults and and miners that have presented with fraudulent documents or fraudulent claims of actually having some sort of parental or family relationship. In many cases, we've seen where even the miners that are being presented as minors are not minors. In fact, there they they're adults as well. We've seen that supported by fraudulent birth certificates and other documents from the northern triangle. So is it possible to just do it as a policy on on every everybody coming across the border where the kid just do it. And if they know that I think it will test DNA test. Yeah. I think it just cuts down on them even trying to do it even trying to get across because they know oh, the jig is up. It's not just going to be if there's a suspicion because they can take their paperwork, then maybe better than they were already doing it now. So so we're starting with a pilot to to look at how this process works and see if it's valuable tool for the investigative process in order to not only deal with the fraudulent family unit at hand. But also look at this mantle and disrupting the smuggling organizations that are that are profiting from this phenomenon right? So as we evaluate during this pilot, we will be able to make some determinations on what the next steps might be in this in the use of this tool in a more. Broader fashion. We we still have a lot of work to do in that space. And so we're approaching it kind of incrementally. At this point. We're talking to is acting deputy director, Derek Benner, a Derek I'm Mike I have an interest in finding out what the president means when he said recently that we are beginning to send some of the legal immigrants who are arriving at our borders to sanctuary cities. I believe he said this now on two occasions. What is the status of that? Are we sending illegal immigrants, the sanctuary cities, and where we sending them, and how are they getting there? So I mean immigrants are I mean, these folks are are transporting themselves to think I cities. So if you look at the number one hundred sixty thousand people released as a border in some occasions to our NGO partners and other cases, not I mean, they're making their way to sanctuary cities and other places in the interior. We're not currently resource appropriately to to expand any of that case. Ability for us. So if if they're transported for detention or immediately removed than the other option at the moment is released, but I think, you know, the the the critical point here is that thanks to our cities are a significant pull factor for for these people to make this trip and create these fraudulent family units thinking that if they can get by frontline DHS law enforcement personnel at the border, then going to a sanctuary city will somehow reduce their potential for being identified and ultimately removed. I still think you should handle little travel, brochures, listing all the sanctuary cities to make it easy for them. Derek benner? Thank you so much for joining us. We appreciate your time. Thank you very much. It's.

If there are no delays the trip can take us little as three days smugglers are offering the express bus route is a faster and less dangerous alternative to the big highly publicized caravans, Derek Benner is executive associate director of homeland security investigations. There's an opportunity to provide a smoother faster more well-planned movement than just starting out walking and taking thirty to forty five day journey through all the different countries across all the different borders, Julio traveled from San Salvador to ios precisely to. Avoid the caravans which I've got on them, which I think Wednesday have mutual rolling Leona along. With the caravan comes lots of crime and lots of problems across with two or three people, and we'll get where we're going and try not to attract any attention Julio knows he needs to sneak into the US undetected or he risks being quickly deported migrants who bring a child within. No, they won't be detained a policy that infuriates President Trump if they ask for asylum. They'll usually be released into the US with a notice to appear and immigration court. That's how the years plan. He's also from San Salvador headed to the states with his wife and three kids he and Julio declined to give their last names. Coming up. President Trump has to defend his nation, but the United States for us is like a mother mother who looks out for these small countries that we come from. But why now why the current surge of migrants US officials estimate the apprehended more than one hundred thousand crossers last month? The most more than a decade. I put this question to own little apar-. He's a prominent businessman in the region of Gus. Yes, ideas, he says he knows lots of people lately who've gone north Lara's. What the says people here through social media that Trump is cracking down in if they don't go to the US now they might not be able to go tomorrow while he's talking he steers his pickup to avoid the giant potholes on the highway along the rugged watermelon border. Got it. How do you like our roads? Look at our sad reality. He says potted I blame state leaders for stealing money. They're supposed to use to maintain the highways in bring services to remote villages. He says it's all part of a corrupt system that perpetuates poverty and allows rampant gang violence, and that's what's driving watermelons out of their homeland. I wanna know get get Mr. Trump can close the border whenever he wants to lintel apart concludes. But the people will keep crossing they have a lot of desire to overcome and get ahead. John burnett.

Jeff Brumfield reports it was done in the name of science this scene in the control room here on earth with tents. So very few people are sitting down. They're all standing up. That's the webcast from Japan space agency. Scientists and engineers were communicating with the spacecraft known as Haya Busa to it's currently somewhere between earth and Mars studying a small asteroid. The team watched is it released a copper disc filled with plastic explosives towards the asteroid then quickly maneuvered to a safe position. Then the explosives fired sending the disk flying into the asteroid surface. And I saw some smiles in applause, but one lawlessly is perfect herald cuddly juniors researcher Rohan university here in the US who collaborate on high abusive to he says, the explosive projectile was basically. Designed to dig a hole. The purpose of it is to move materials on the leaper death up to the surface. So it's not an open act of aggression against another planetary body. Absolutely.

So the precursors to what earth was made from and thought they could teach us a lot about the planet's past even perhaps the origins of life here after the dust settles high abusive to will study the crater created by today's explosion, it may even land and take a sample. Eventually it will return samples to earth where scientists like Connolly can study them to learn more about how these asteroids,.
