Mark Morgan Describes the Human Tragedy of an Open Border
"Talk to us about what you've seen just briefly of the human tragedy, especially children and young girls, if you have an open border. This isn't just a one off. This is part of the system. Yeah. This is another reason why I say secretary is the most dangerous man in this country, because it's not just about Americans that are dying every single day because he's the chief architect of these open border policies. But here's something you will never hear from them. Remember what he says that he's developed a safe and orderly and humane illegal immigration process. First of all, it's an oxymoron and second of all, it's a lie. First of all, in the first 20 months under this administration, there have been over 1300 dead migrants that have been found by this administration, shattering any record of all time. And that's just CBP. That doesn't include the dead migrants that local law enforcement is found. It does include the dead migrants in Mexico along the Darien gap on the journey. That number could be in the thousands. You'll never hear from that. That is an include that up to 30% of young women and children are sexually assaulted and raped on the journeys up here. I've talked to border trial agents who said they interviewed a girls as long as 12 years old that were in multiple times in the journey. Our sheriff lamb that I know you know, talk to how their deputies found a backpack full of pills and they asked a 14 year old girl what that is. Morning after pills, my mom gave them to me because they knew I was going to be raped and you'll never hear from this administration. The number of illegal aliens that once you get the United States, they also are forced into a life of trafficking. That is exponentially expanded as well. None of this you'll hear from this administration.

"If you had any compassion, you'd actually close the border and you'd build the wall. We're talking to a distinguished visiting fellow at the heritage foundation former commissioner of CBP customs and border protection Mark Morgan. Please join support heritage today heritage dot ORG. This is America first one on one. If you want to know if you need to know the truth about the border, my good friend Charlie Kirk has done something that the mainstream lying legacy media refuses to do. He went down to the border like I did with mister G a wild back to see a sheriff lamb and what's really going on, but this time wasn't just a short one day visit like we had. He has filmed a 6 part documentary called border battle. It has shocking footage, things you will never, ever see on the likes of CNN or on the pages of The Washington Post. You need to educate yourself and understand how this is a national security threat to all Americans, not just on the southern border, but all Americans watch today only available at Salem now dot com. It's Charlie Kirk, great American patriots film series, 6 episodes, get 20% off if you use my name. Go to Salem now dot com. It's where you can watch 2000 mules, use my name for 20% off the border battle 6 part documentary. I'm just curious, because I haven't asked you in the beginning, mister G and I who has a very good political sense. We looked at the abbot desantis busing migrants thing as a kind of cheap stunt, what difference does it make when you've got millions flooding across the border? But when it arrived in Martha's Vineyard and he saw the national God being mobilized to get him off and get him into a camp, what did you think of that little political play? So I thought, so I was kind of in the dissented opinion when first governor Abbott had it. I actually said it was genius. Oh, you did? I did. Because look, his goal was he knew that wasn't going to change what was happening in southwest border. But what he knew was that it was going to keep it in the top fold. And it was going to show the left that their hypocrisy. And just when I thought governor Abbott had done a good job, and then governor desantis goes, he just kind of won the ups him, right? By sending Martha vineyard. An area probably one of the most richest enclaves and the face of the planet, right? And part of their, they actually billboards as part of their mission statement saying, we welcome and everybody. They have it right there in the harbor. We welcome all immigrants. They couldn't, they couldn't corral them up fast enough and get them out of there so fast. Would have been a camp. Military. Military camp. So one, just a hypocrisy, but I tell you what. I did more interviews. And the 30 days following that, then I had probably 60 days. Sorry, what? If you got people to talk about the border. Even the mainstream media. So it was genius. Now let's talk about something that nobody in the mainstream media ever talks about. Even in the conservative media, they don't spend enough time. And it's super important to me. Morale. Is it dead? Is it gone? I mean, who would serve in the CBP or Einstein? I mean, how do these guys survive? You've got the contacts. Tell us what it's like to work there. My analogy and somebody may say, I'm mark, you shouldn't use a wartime analogy for this, but remember Black Hawk down. I remember after the bulk of the battle was over, and one of the guys, the soldiers, many heroes, was loaded back up to go back out and one of the sources said, why are you going back out there? He said, because the guy next to me, right? And that's really what you have, I think, with the border patrol now. They're getting up every single day, putting the badge on their chest just for the man and woman next to them. Just to do anything they can to somehow pick some crumb of ability to safeguard and secure this border because they know. Look, they've been used as political ponds, and they know it. They know every single tool authority and policy that was given to them on the Trump administration has been taken away. They know they've been relegated to a welcome and agency to a federal travel agency. They know they're not on the front line. They know they can not do their job to safeguard the mission. There's public and this country, but they get up every single day. The morale is the worst that's ever been. Real quick. 26 year veteran. Just getting up, looking in the mirror square in a way is uniform. And he said for the first time, he looked up after 26 years in the border troll and said, I just realized that I am now part of the world's largest smuggling organization in the world. That's right. Somebody said that to you. Well, thank you for doing what you do, Mark. Please follow us on all media platforms, social media. We are everywhere except the fascistic YouTube.

Who's Laughing at Us? Mark Morgan Explains
"It has been said no nation in the world except America has open borders. We're the only one. Talk to us about other nations, talk to us about what it was like working with the hemispheric nations. And what they must be thinking now, are they laughing at us? Are they scratching their head? Is Haiti going, okay, take all of the people that we don't want. We'll talk to us about other nations there regimes. And how it was working with them. So it's good. So there's two things that happen, right? So let's go with the ones that are outside even the western hemisphere. You know, a good one is Venezuela right now. I mean, they are laughing at us. So we've already got the reports, right? That they are, in fact, releasing criminals to come here to the United States. So remember when president Trump was saying on the campaign, even throughout his presidency, everybody said, oh, that's hyperbole. They're not sending their best is what he said, right? Exactly. It's true. Everything he said about the board of Sebastian was true. And now we have it, we also know that now middle easterns are using fake Mexican identification cards to try to get in. So the whole world is absolutely laughing at us

"We are following an administration that frankly dismantled our capabilities to address it. And so we are building it from the ground up. We lost four years of investing in the countries from which these individuals are migrating. Our safe and orderly systems were torn down. And so we're rebuilding them. Sometimes being a host of America first is a dangerous activity, especially when I play cuts of Alejandro mayorkas and I have Mark Morgan in studio because I can actually see the jugular vein in his neck extending and pulsating. It's the easiest way to make him angry. Mark Morgan, you were responsible for the border as the commissioner of customs and border protection under the Trump administration. When you hear that, when you hear man say, we inherited a system that had been dismantled and broken by the Trump administration. The only way I can translate that, I put it through my magic decoder ring for George Orwell, and I get yes, it was broken because the Democrats wanted open borders. That's the only way it makes sense. Am I right? Yeah, I agree with that, but I tell you. But he's lying. It's a complete lie and you're right. This is why I literally wake up every day angry and frustrated because not only did they dismantle and throw away the most secure border in our lifetime. If that's not bad enough, just as an American, I get because I know this border. And I know that we have the most secure border in our lifetime and a president Trump. And so I know that the secretary America's entire administration. Sebastian, they're just blatantly lying to the American people. There's way beyond D.C. swap. It's a lie. Because let's be clear here. This isn't a guy who was shining shoes two years ago, wasn't a guy who was, I don't know, an accountant, Alejandro mayorkas, was in a very senior position in the Obama DHS. I was born. All right, so he knows what he's doing. There's no way this is an accident, right? That's right. That's just like, look, I was chief of the United States border chart when he was deputy secretary. I worked for him. I could agree with him more. He knows he's lying, just like he knew he was lying when he was going after the horse patrol agents, right? And so, but here's the thing. So they always say that they inherited a dismantle system. But guess what? Do they ever follow up with facts or examples? They never do. But guess what? I say it's they who dismantled the system, but I followed up with facts that got rid of the wall system. They got rid of third country agreements with all three northern triangle countries. They got rid of the remain in Mexico program and they dismantle us through their enforcement. And also, I'm not going to use his name because I don't have permission to do so, but I was at an event where a guy introduced himself to me all the gentlemen who is an immigration court judge. And I just have to ask him, this is two months ago. I said, so what's it like now? I mean, do you actually evaluate? And he says, no, we're told to just push everybody through. Push him through. And then they are told to come back to the court on their own recognizance, which means what, Mark, what's happened that happens usually. They never show up. And that's another part of the lie. A lot of they'll twist all the statistics. They'll say, oh, no, that's not true. They show up. No, the truth is, they may show up for their original master hearing, and then that's it. Right. And the other thing, you know, asylum seekers, we know and talk about economic migrants. Look, to have a valid asylum claim, it means that you personally are the victim of state sponsored persecution because your involvement in protected class. It's not, you know, you've got a nasty neighbor. It means whether you're the wrong ethnicity, religion, political party. From the state from the state you live your in danger. Correct. That's legitimate. It's not you just want to climb the economic ladder. It's not you want a better house. That's a false claim. But yet we know, and this secretary Sebastian knows that the overwhelming majority of illegal aliens coming in are economic migrants and filing false asylum claims and he knows it. You keep on talking and my list of stuff that asks him just goes on and on and.

"I'm going to just ask basic questions because you come on the show and we have a couple of segments with you usually. We can hit the burning issues of the day. The latest lies from Mallorca's, the latest, the 53 dead in an 18 Wheeler legal aliens, the Democrats don't seem to care about. But will you just do the basics for us? Your job as commissioner, the people who work for CBP, the people who work for ice who work for HSI Homeland Security investigations, there is a way to secure the border. This isn't voodoo. We're not guessing at this. We're not still working it out. Talk to us about the mission of Homeland Security of CBP. And the kinds of things that you did in the Trump administration that actually worked, explained to us border security Mark. Yeah. So look, the cousins and border protection, 62,000 strong, $15 billion budget. And they actually have a vast, very complicated mission. It's not just about border security, but it's also a counter terrorism national security mission. Going after transnational criminal organizations and facilitating lawful trade and travel. CBP a lot of people don't realize there's a second largest revenue collectors for the United States outside the IRS. Because all of the tariffs and all the things imported goods, you're managing that. Exactly right. From every land sea and airport in this country. So it wasn't just about southwest border. It was protected in this nation from any threats coming in from anywhere from outside the country. But obviously we're focused on southwest border. Sebastian, you're right. It's not complicated. Look, I don't want to overly simplify something, but it gets back just like the crime in the United States. It's about enforcing the rule of law, putting the correct layer of resources and policy in place so that the folks on the front lines can actually do their job. And look, that's exactly what president Trump was doing. So explain when you came in, what was the situation? And what did you do to make things better? Walk us through some of the big muscle movements. Big ones real quick. So a G remember June of 2019, we had a full blown crisis. Remember that June, in 2019, a 140,000 illegal aliens had entered the country. When we had a couple of things, one is we needed some infrastructure, right? Again, if you asked the board of control agents just like that clip, they'll say, look, it's a multilayer strategy of infrastructure technology and personnel. Anywhere along the southwest border, where that strategy, infrastructure of the wall, technology and personnel is implemented every single measure of success improve the border was more secure. So that's one thing we did. We turned up the bunsen burner on that and we started putting more miles of wall in. That was very successful. So let's stop there. The wall, not high-tech. This is in drones. Infrared, whatever. But it works, does it? It works. It's very simple. The actual just the act of steel and concrete going in the ground acts as a barrier. It slows down the cartels, it slows them down. So that we on the front lines are response time is more effective and are enforcement ability is more effective. Because they don't get to walk over whenever they want, right? Right, common sense, Sebastian. You don't have to be more security expert to understand that. And then at the same time, if you remember, there's a really bad lower decision called the floor settlement agreement. That said, if you're an unaccompanied minor or a family and you illegally enter the border, we can't detain you, boom. That was a birth of catch and release. When does Flores begin? So who brings in the Flores decision? I mean, it's a judge. It's a case. When is it born? Yeah, 2015 is when they started applying it to families as well as unaccompanied. And you tell me if I'm wrong, the issue here is, how do you know if it's a real family? That's exactly right. How do you know if it's a real minor? Because we've seen that before we saw the case in Florida. He said he was 17. He's 21 released and killed his sponsor. Families. We saw that all the time. We saw kids that were literally being bought, sold and rented to form a fake family because of the time. This is my kid, but actually was rented yesterday in Mexico for a thousand bucks. And smuggling it back and they rented again. And then please, this is secondhand, but it's from a very good source. My wife, who was the CEP. Thank you. The press secretary for Mark inside DHS. When she was working for you, didn't you guys do a preliminary kind of test run where you do genetic testing on these quote unquote families? We did. And you found a shocking number that they weren't related at all. Shocking. But I'll tell you what, it was shocking to the mainstream folks, but it wasn't shocking. You guys. Right? Right. So yeah, we applied rapid DNA. And we put resources from HSI, the Homeland Security investigations element of ice down there and we worked together. I can't tell you the numbers that we found of fake families. That's all gone away now. And so the issue was, then that's what a catch and release was born with families, right? That was your automatic passport. You show up as a family, boom, you're released in. We went to president Trump when we told him, look, we've got to stop this. This is creating the tsunami that we're seeing back in 2019. He said, well, that's dumb. How do we fix it? We got an idea, a remain in Mexico. Which means you can apply to become, you know, asylum seeker, which is certain standards or what have we can talk about that. But you're not going to do it in America where you can just disappear. Correct. You go back to Mexico, file a paperwork and you wait, correct? That's correct. Okay. And that, what? It was incredibly successful. And so funny, some of the other side to open border advocates. They actually use the numbers to try to say it wasn't successful. And this is what they'll say. Well, you know, you only enrolled about 60,000 people in the program. So was it that successful? I said, yeah, because 500,000 less came, right? Because they knew they weren't going to be because they couldn't get past the system. That's exactly right. One more thing that I have to address as the child of those who were actual refugees who escaped a political prison and who would have been shot if he was recaptured. That's my dad. Refugee is a special status. It's not an it's not somebody who wants a better job or to mail money back home. You have to have reasonable expectation that if you go back home, you're going to be killed or imprisoned, and also you have to apply for asylum in the first country or arrive in correct, correct. So the idea that 2 million refugees arrived is bogus. It's a complete lie. And it also is against international standards. And Sebastian want to submit to you. It's also the worst thing for the mine guard themselves. Because the migrant themselves, when they get here, they don't have any skills that don't speak the language. They don't understand the culture. International standard is if you're too refugee, what you really should want to do is find them a place in the region where their skills translate their culture translate. This is genius. So Christmas 6 years ago, I took my family to the Middle East. We went to Israel, but first we went to Jordan and we went to the biggest refugee camp in the Middle East, just to have a look for ourselves that Jordanian police officer who is a Muslim who is a Bedouin said, yes, our goal is to solve this problem closest to the community where they come from because they eventually want to go.

I host the morning answer with my friend grant stinchfield in Los Angeles for Salem radio on AMH 70, a.m. 5 90 the answer also a frequent guest here on America first. You can usually hear me Wednesdays in the 4 o'clock eastern hour talking about crazy California and boy. It sure is crazier by the minute. But such a nice honor to be filling in for my friend Seb, who, by the way, is up to some really interesting stuff today. That's where he is. He's going to be telling you on social media a little hint as to what he's been working on. So make sure you're following step on all the platforms at Seb gorkin, of course, watching this program on the Salem news channel. Now, the southern border is out of control and has been under the watch of the Biden administration. It's gotten so crazy that states have had to act themselves to try to fix the problem. And Arizona's governor Doug ducey tried to put up temporary barriers along the border. The Biden administration said that he had to remove them. And, well, he responded by filing a lawsuit against the Biden administration here to unpack all of that with us is Mark Morgan. He's a visiting fellow border security and immigration center for the heritage foundation joins us right now. Mark Morgan, welcome to America first. Jennifer, thanks for having me. Now, it is unbelievable because under president Trump and you were you worked under president Trump in his administration. Customs and border patrol. The border was at least by and large secured. We were actually maintaining a border. We had a stay in Mexico policy in place the Biden administration has wiped all of that out so much so that states like Texas have been shipping migrants to try to get some attention to the problem. There are already been 2 million people that they know about that have been encountered during the fiscal year of 2022 at the border. And now the governor of Arizona is trying to put up just temporary barriers to protect his state, especially in the Yuma sector, and the Biden administration says he can't do that. If we, if these states can't protect if the federal government can't protect them, then the states have to protect themselves and they shouldn't be getting this pushback from Biden. Yeah, Jennifer Zachary, right. First of all, I was proud to serve under president Trump as a commissioner on CBP. And this is what I always say is that we had the most secure border in our lifetime. And this administration came in and intentionally unsecured the border. Like you said, I can say that they dismounted the system, but yeah, I could provide you facts of what I mean by that one. They stopped the wall system construction. Two, as you said, they stopped the remain in Mexico program. Three, they stopped this sign on the cooperative agreements. We have with all three northern triangle countries, and they have restricted ice from doing their job by lawfully deporting people. And what has happened? Of course, we have the crisis. You said, this fiscal year, 2.7 million people on this fiscal year. If you include the God of ways under the first 21 months of this administration, over 5.5 million illegal aliens have either tried or successfully entered this border in 21 months. And what's their answer when state step up to fill that void is they actually try to stop the states from securing the border of which this administration refuses to do. I mean, we're literally living in an alternative world, Jennifer. It is, it's just unbelievable. It makes you feel like it's an assailant in a sad asylum. If they are not going to fix the problem at the federal level, then they shouldn't stop the states from doing it. I've heard that Carrie Lake if she gets elected to governor in Arizona says she wants to declare an invasion and she would be well within her rights to do that. As you mentioned, 2.7 million this year, 5 million in total, this is just two years of the Biden administration. How much more can our country withstand? Yeah, that's exactly right. Look, and I've heard the same thing from Carrie Lake. And I hope she wins. Because she understands that border security is national security. She understands that illegal immigration is not a victimless crime. She understands that as illegal immigration skyrockets, especially to millions, millions and just 20 months is that that pulls very limited resources off the front line, leaving the border wide open, unsecured, uncontrolled. We've literally handed operational control over to the cartels and she knows just like governor Abbott knows, that means criminals, drugs and that potential national security threats are pouring into this country every single day all day long. And look, I really hope the viewers right now refer to the constitution, the constitution is very clear Jennifer, you're spot on, that if the federal government fails to do their constitutional duty to protect the states, the states have a self help remedy clause in the constitution that they can protect themselves and I hope that's exactly what the governors on the border do..

John Fetterman's Campaign Seeks to Lower Expectations
"Federman. His campaign just yesterday issued a press release, suggesting that, you know, they want people to lower their expectations on what John fetterman is going to do tonight. So they're already worried that, you know, listen, I'm not going to make fun of a guy who has a stroke. But the problem is, the guy had a stroke and he's not at this point, and I don't know if he can. If you can't debate your opponent and carry Lake nailed his two in Arizona, debating is your job audition. Your auditioning to the voters to show them that you are capable of doing your job when you go to the U.S. Senate. This isn't an audition for a job at Twitter after Elon Musk fires everybody at the end of the week. When he takes sulfur possession of it, this is a job that you want people to vote for you so that you can represent them and worry about their needs, not game shows or any of this other stuff. So I think fetterman is going to have a tough time tonight. I'm not rooting against him. I hope he does well. But the bottom line is when your campaign is worried, even though they got this whole thing straightened out where he's only going to have one debate, early voting is already underway. And if he fails tonight, the media will still carry water for him. The Philadelphia inquirer and all of the media info will just pretend that doctor Fraser was being mean to him or he's an ableist and all of this other stuff. And you're right. They have the same thing. Everybody's a racist. Everybody's far right. Anybody with common sense is far right to these people now. It's insane.
Tony Bruno Shares His Thoughts on Gov. Ron DeSantis
"Talk about Florida because desantis is a head now. Some polls have him up ten points. So what did you think his performance was cool calm and collected last night? I thought he did really well in his debate. How are floridians taking his performance as governor? Well, it's interesting. It depends on who you listen to. Now, obviously, the media here is also far left for the most part. The major newspapers, they're all the same in every big city, filling my hometown here in Florida. It doesn't matter whether it's Orlando or Jacksonville or Miami. I mean, they're all going to just endorse Democrats no matter what, no matter how bad they are, the same thing in PA and Philly my hometown. But I think most people here can see it. They can see what Ron DeSantis, I think they're mad that Ron DeSantis is doing his job. Imagine that there's a disaster and the governor does his job and does it well and they're mad because the Senate needed a hurricane to show that he's working for Florida. No, he didn't. That's just saying how myopic these people are. How they think that a guy who's doing what he's supposed to do and has done an amazing job in less than a month is somehow a bad guy. And it's a ridiculous.
Steve Hilton: It's Not Enough to Have the Right Ideas in Politics
"That was clear from what happened with Liz truss is that in politics and in government, it's not enough to have the right ideas. You've also got to have proper preparation professional implementation and good communication to sell your. And with Liz trusts, she had the first part, I completely agreed with the idea that she set out, which very clearly in her leadership campaign, the equivalent of the primary for the leadership of the Conservative Party, where she said, look, we've had too many years of stagnant growth, a low growth, low productivity economy. We've got to get growth going, got to cut taxes, cut regulation, we're out of the EU, we got Brexit done. That's great. But now we've got to make the most of it. We've got to make the most of the freedoms that we have. Now that we've left the EU. And that was completely correct. Couldn't agree more. But then the way she announced it and implemented it just suddenly taking everyone by surprise, the actual substance of what she announced. In fact, wasn't that much of a surprise. If you look in the details of the announcement, the biggest new thing that she announced, which was a cut to the higher rate of tax, not a huge amount when you look at the overall impact of her mini budget. But it took the markets by surprise they weren't expecting it to colleagues in the government weren't expecting it. And it all unraveled incredibly quickly and I'm afraid she paid the price for just poor a poor rollout, which seems unfair and it seems crazy, but they are. Now the problem is, will the new prime minister Rishi sunak go in the same direction of a pro growth economy? He was the one that was pushing one of the worst single measures that she actually decided to reverse, which was an increase in business taxes, which to me seems completely insane.
"mark morgan" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"It's the president and your backing of the president's open border policies. All right, let me ask you, Mark, because I know you still continue to spend a lot of time on the border. The agents down there love you, Tom Holman, Ken cuccinelli, these guys that are still, we're working for Trump, still working for America today on their own time to try to push this country in the right direction, get this immigration system under control. You were just down on the border. Can you tell me what it is like for the men and women working the line, can they even work the line? Or I've called them welcome patrol. And I don't mean the besmirch that they're good name. I know they're law enforcement officers, but it seems to me that's all they are now. Welcome patrol, not border patrol. Grant, you're right, and you're not dispersing them actually. I've seen a coin. That's virtual seal on it on the back. It said, welcome, welcoming patrol. It was done by motorcycle agent. That's just a manifestation of their frustration. Look, it was a couple of months ago where a border charger reached out to me and said, look, he was getting ready for morning like he has every morning for the past 26 years. He was very proud to be a board of foliage and as he looked up in the mirror to finish scoring away his uniform. He said he realized for the first time that he's now the part of the largest world's world's largest smuggling organization that's out there. And for the first time, he was not proud to be a member of the organization he served for 26 years and not because it's anything that they've done is because of this administration's policies that are not allow them to do their job. Look, the reality is, there are large areas along the southwest border grant for 80 to 90% of border control agents are pulled off the front line. They're pulled away from the national security mission. They're relegated to administrative jobs, hospital watch, transportation and processing. Meanwhile, they know that by doing that, they're literally handing over operational control to the border where a whole host of basset of complex threats are coming across the border and making their way to every state in this country. Mark in about 30 seconds if you can because they're coming up on a hard break here. You know, you talk about being part of a smuggling ring and really it's because they're enabling Biden administration and their policies that are enabling the border patrol to allow this stuff to happen, which is why they're part of this ring. Is that right? 30 seconds. Yeah, that's exactly right. And they know that by being pulled off the line, the border is wide open, the cartels own it. We know drugs are coming in, killing Americans. We know criminals are coming in, murderers, rapists, gang members, and we know there's an exponential increase our national security vulnerability. And every single board of tools it and there's nothing they can do about it. Yeah. Look, Mark Morgan, I appreciate all the work that you're doing down there. And I mean it. I know you and your other buddies, I mentioned Tom Holman and Ken cuccinelli still work and really, really hard. And we appreciate it. I know the Biden team doesn't, but we do, buddy, thank you for coming on today. Back at you, brother. You got it, my man. All right, folks. I want to get a little later in the hour. Coming up next hour. I want to get to the Trump rally. Some great stuff. We're going to have some highlights from that. Customer service mean anything to you. I've got a little story that happened to me over the weekend. I want to run it by you. This is bizarre, man, what happened, but I'm going to run it by you and get your take on it. That when America first continues. I'm Sebastian gorka, this is America first. Let's get back to the show with grand stinchfield. Ah, thank you so much, doctor Jean. It is a pleasure to be sitting in for you this afternoon. Look, I want to get to the bottom of this Trump case, this Mar-a-Lago raid was it a legal seizure of documents. We know that. It's clear president Trump clearly has the ability to decide what is classified and what wasn't when he was president, cash Patel has already said on numerous occasions. He heard the president declassify this stuff. I believe there's no legal authority to go after president Trump, but that doesn't mean anything to the left. They know that. They know they can wrap the president up in these legal quagmire as they ultimately wage a war, a political war of persecution, reign it down upon him. One of the things that I have been so blessed with is that as I have become more and more involved in conservative politics, I've surrounded myself with fighters from doctor Sebastian gorka to Jim Jordan and of course my next guest. All my Friends are these unbelievable fighters and I'm so proud to call them friends and of course I'm talking about alena haba, which is president Trump's one of president Trump's members of his legal team..
Mark Morgan on What It's Like to Be a Border Patrol Agent Under Biden
"Ask you, Mark, because I know you still continue to spend a lot of time on the border. The agents down there love you, Tom Holman, Ken cuccinelli, these guys that are still, we're working for Trump, still working for America today on their own time to try to push this country in the right direction, get this immigration system under control.

Grant Stinchfield Details the Mexican-American Border Crisis
"About immigration, we've got a crisis on our hands. We've been saying this now for the last two years, president Trump had us moving in the right direction by no means do I try to tell you that we didn't have an immigration problem, even when president Trump was in office. We most certainly did. But we were on our way to correcting that problem between building the wall between remain and Mexico between getting Mexico to help us with the immigration and stem the flow coming out of that country. We were on our way. And we had made great strides. Now, kiss it all goodbye. And so to make a point and I think they've gone above and beyond making their point. Governor desantis and governor avid in Texas, desantis and Florida has sent these migrants to Martha's Vineyard to Chicago to Philadelphia, these left wing liberals, limousine liberals, as I call them, cry foul, they say that it's a chaotic scene that there's a crisis, do you know what it's like and Del Rio, Texas? These are little tiny towns. They can't handle this. Oh wait, Martha's Vineyard's a little tiny town too. Apparently they couldn't handle 50 migrants compared to the 15,000 every day that we see in Del Rio, Texas.
Grant Stinchfield and John Solomon on the Leadership Failures of J6
"Get back to the show with grand stinchfield. Well, I'll tell you what it is such a pleasure to be sitting in for my good friend doctor Sebastian gork I always enjoy being in the studio talking to you as well. All of you out there. And one of the things I love is when we have great guests on this program, which doctor Sebastian gorka always has great guys on. One of my favorites used to come on my newsmax show all the time, of course, is John Solomon from just the news, who's been breaking so much news over the course of so many years, but John Solomon is great to have you on the program. Great to be with you, grant. Great to be with you. Now I'm going to try this. The audio is a little shaky, but let's give this a shot. So John, January 6th, you have been beyond many on top of everything surrounding January 6th, the leftist play on the political prisoners that they've been holding all these things. It looks like they are now going to reconvene the January 6th committee in Congress. In October, just in time for the November elections. Is this some kind of October surprise that they're doing another ploy? Well, I think it exposes once again what people have thought about the January 6th committee, which is political first in public interest second. They've been driving politics from the beginning. This is all about attacking Trump nation. And not about getting to the root issues that should matter to the American public. Like, how did a $600 million police force get overrun by a group of old guns on January 6th? We don't have any answers to that. After 9 11, we learned from the failures of 9 11. The January 6th committee isn't interested. Last week I broke a story. There were as many as ten capital police whistleblowers have come forward saying, we had all the intelligence to prevent January 6th, but we didn't create the plan. The resourcing, the mindset to defend the capitol that day, that should scare all of us, because those problems haven't been fixed.
Guest Host Grant Stinchfield: Joe Biden Is Dementia-Ridden
"About this disastrous 60 minutes interview that Joe Biden did last night. There's a reason why he put this off. He just is not good on his feet at all. I mean, the man is dementia ridden. I am confident of that and he does not have a mental acuity capable of keeping America on the right track. And you add in really bad policies being pushed by him and his party. It's a total recipe for chaos in America, which is what we're seeing. Now, last week I swear, you correct me if I'm wrong. I watched Joe Biden wear a mask. I know I saw him just last week wearing a mask. Now we know it is ridiculous right now to be wearing a mask. They didn't work, by the way. And I have plenty of evidence to back that up.
Guest Host Grant Stinchfield Talks About Biden's '60 Minute' Speech
"I'm very proud and excited to introduce our guest host for today. Grant stinchfield. Well, thank you so much, doctor gene, is always great to be sitting in your chair, sir, and it's always a great pleasure to be along with you this afternoon. Very big show. I guess you could say it was a very big weekend, if not just looking at the 60 minutes interview that Joe Biden did with Scott pelley. And I'll tell you what Scott pelly had said this interview was like two years in the making. He'd been trying to get this interview and The White House kept putting it off and putting it off. Well, we saw why firsthand why The White House would want to put this interview off. In my mind, and I know you know that I was going to say this. But this interview was a disaster. This interview could potentially get us into World War three with China. So there are so many aspects of the bungling of the 60 minutes interview that Joe Biden managed to do. But I want to start first with what probably is the most important. Was that Joe Biden turned his back on a long-standing policy in the United States that we would have strategic ambiguity with our stance with Taiwan and China. Now, we are watching firsthand our economy collapse before our very eyes. Nothing has changed since Joe Biden has taken over as far as our reliance on China for everything. Going to war with China. I promise you, would be an absolute disaster. Now, I was fully thinking that Joe Biden is in the tank for China. So then why then would he threaten war with China if China was to invade Taiwan? And make no bones about it. Joe Biden said in no uncertain terms. That we would use military force to stop China if they were to invade Taiwan. Now, does he mean that? I mean, this is a man who calls himself presidents. The man who occupies the Oval Office, whether we like it or not, he's the guy, they call commander in chief.
Sebastian Talks Hunter Biden With Breitbart's Emma Jo Morris
"She is the political editor for the conservative juggernaut breitbart dot com Emma Joe Morris. Welcome back to America first. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. Dumb question, naive question. Hunter Biden's story ever going to end. No, never. And it's actually only going to get worse because the Republicans are coming into power and God willing and, you know, if they have any sense, which I'm sure that they do, they're going to look into this because, you know, this story that we're talking about today. We're talking about eugen Ming, who had that was the subject of the time story that Biden told his son, you're clear. You Jin Ming is charged for bribery, and this is the same person who was involved in the CEFC deal with hunter where we saw the infamous line 10% for the big guy. So, you know, it's just more confirmation that not only was Joe Biden aware of his business dealings, not only was he talking to him about them which he denies. But again, this guy's has been nailed on
Nick Searcy Describes His Latest Film 'Terror on the Prairie'
"But now we're going to talk about your brand new adventure. It's scary. It's a western. It's from the guys at the daily wire. Tell us about terror on the Prairie. Well, terror on the Prairie is a great old throwback western. It's like a Sam Peckinpah movie. It's bloody and, you know, it's all about revenge and families and it's a terrific terrific ride. But it's a really a big step forward for the daily wire. It's important for conservatives to start making popular entertainment. And that's what the daily wire is trying to do. And this movie with Gina Carano, who, of course, was the actress that was famously canceled for no good reason by Disney. Is the star of the movie and is her first venture with them. And it was an honor for me to be part of it. I'm actually the title role. I'm the terror. You're the bad guy, right? Your hat should be black not why you're wearing the wrong hat. Well, I'm a good guy in real life. So all

"mark morgan" Discussed on The Larry Elder Show
"All right, welcome to the Carl Jackson show podcast. I'm honored to have our guests with us today. Mark Morgan. Mark, listen, I gotta start off by telling you, obviously I love your work. I love what you're doing, not enough of people who are paying attention to it, in my opinion, which is why we have you on today, but I can remember when Trump hired you, I sat there and I thought, oh my God, this is a guy that used to work under the Obama administration. We're in trouble. And I was completely wrong, thank God. So I do appreciate what you've done over the years to keep America safe, so that's some of the stuff that I want to talk about, how do we get America back to in our borders back to a secure place. But let me start here. Let me start here, Mark, because some of the things that I've been reading, I've been looking through headlines. I've been reading some of your past interviews. And what we see at the border is absolutely daunting 2.4 million illegal aliens crossing our border in a span of one year May 2021 to this past may. The last year, Trump's administration, you guys had it down to 626,000 or so crossing and that was during COVID. How frustrating is it for you to know the work all of the work that you guys put in to secure our border to slow to slow the flow if you will to see what's happening now? How frustrating is that for you on a personal level, first and foremost? Caused a great question. I get asked all the time. Be honest with you, it's very frustrating. But if I can address your fears when I came in as the commissioner of CBP after serving around the Obama administration, I think there were a lot of people that had your concerns. But here's the challenge. I've been doing this for 35 years. I've served under 6 administrations, both Republican and Democrat. And for those of us who have had similar careers, it's not about the right or left. It's about what's in the best interest of this country. And that's what's driven me my entire career, and that's what drove me as the commissioner at CDP. And so look, the reality is, under the Trump administration, we have the most secure border in our lifetime. And we were making it more secure every day. This administration comes in, not only dismantles that as you just illustrated by one staff. But here's another thing that's equally as frustrated me as they did everything is that there are lying to the American people. I mean, Carl literally, every time secretary mayor goes opens his mouth, especially during testimony, that when it comes to southwest border, it's a lie. Yeah, this is so frustrating to me too because we want to be able to trust our institutions and when we know we know these people are flat up lying to us. It just makes it feels overwhelming, Mark. I mean, let me ask you this. I think you've somewhat answered, but let me ask you, what's happening at the border and your opinion? Is it intentional? It is, in my opinion. It is, and here's why. Look, first of all, secretary Marcus, I keep going back because he's the chief architect of this administration's open border policies. He's a smart guy. He served as the deputy secretary when I was chief of the border patrol. He knows the border. He knows the issues right now. He gets the same reports now that he did back his deputy same reports. I got his chief and as the commissioner, he knows, let me give you one step, for example, 800,000 got aways. That's 800,000 known got aways, illegal aliens that have broken our southwest border and made their way to every town city and state. In addition to I'm sorry to interrupt Mark, but in addition to the 2.4 million that we're speaking of. That's correct. It's apprehensions. The 800,000 are the God ways. But Carl, I'm planning to interrupt me because a lot of people get confused and don't understand that. There's people that broke in and because border tour resources are pulled off the line to be rally really a federal travel agency for that illegal aliens, 800,000 got aways known. The border agents will say it's more than that. This secretary knows that. And he knows, so he knows our border is wide open. He knows operational control has been handed over the cartels and large areas of southwest border. And among that 800,000, he knows there are murderers rapists pedophiles and a national security vulnerability. Yet he will tell the American people that our borders are closed and he has operational control. It's a flat out line. Okay, so here's another thing that's been frustrating to me, Mark. I don't see enough Republicans out on this issue. I really don't understand why there isn't, I don't care if they alternate with a camera in front of the southern border. Is there a reason why they're not showing up in your opinion? Because I don't expect the left to secure the border at this point. It's obviously intentional, but I do respect I expect Republicans to stand up to this nonsense or at least to point it out so that we don't get this idea that listen America is secure. The border is secure. It is absolutely not. I live in Orlando, Florida, Mark. Let me tell you, write down the road from me. It's not a bad neighborhood by any stretch of the imagination, but you drive down a mile, there's typically a couple of homeless people, same ones, typically on the corner, 5 or so alternate where they're asking for money. They're not there anymore. You know who's there? A couple of illegal alien families now that are sitting on both of the corners. I drive down another mile or so just east of me and there's a couple of more families and I'm sitting here and I'm thinking this isn't contained at the southern border in the western states anymore. Yeah, so a lot to unpack there. Everything you just said, I couldn't have said it better myself. You really don't need me. You got it, you're well informed. Look, this is one reason that we say what happens on the border doesn't stay at the border. And it's why we say every state is a border state because what happens at the border makes its way to every state in this union. Look, let me give you an example. The 107,000 drug related overdoses that we experienced in our 12 month period in this country. Keep in mind, that's more deaths than Americans died in all the terrorist attack that Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam wars combined. Wow. And a 12 month period. The leading cause of death in this country from 18 to 45 years old is fentanyl and where does 95% of the fentanyl come from? The southwest border. So let's go back to your republic. So we know the Democrats, they've shown, they're not going to secure the border. And we understand that for politics and ideology, where the Republicans. Let's keep in mind, I'm going to Trump administration. The first two years, he had The White House, the House and the Senate, and the Republicans failed to pass a single piece of meaningful legislation, had they about 80% of what's happening right now through executive order policy wouldn't have been able to be done. And where are they at right now? I agree with you, Carl. Let me give you one example. The FBI, just in the past few weeks, made it public that they disrupted a terrorist attack that was geared to assassinate a former president former president Bush, of which they were going to smuggle in additional terrorists through the southwest wide open southwest border. Where is the outrage? How is this a Republican or democratic thing? This should be 24 hour wall to wall news coverage that we just prevented a terrorist attack that was going to come across the southwest border. And then let's not forget, let's go back to it. We just talked about 800,000 gallons. In my opinion, it's not a hyperbole to say the next terrorist attack could potentially already be in the United States. Oh man, that's so well said and I love the way and again reading through an interview that you gave earlier with John Solomon. I love the way you put it basically if this were if we were to have a terrorist attack a hundred or so thousand people killed. Everybody would all of a sudden pay attention. But we're talking and we are having that attack occur with the illegal immigration and the Mexican cartel essentially controlling the United States border when we have so many people that are dying of drug overdoses and one thing Mark that's very peculiar to me is the fact that so many of the deaths that seem to be occurring and the areas that are hit are oftentimes Midwestern towns even where it probably some of those people are more, let's say Americana and perhaps people that would end up in our military serving our nation proudly saw sit there and think China and all of these other places are getting exactly what they want. They are killing United States citizens with the help of Joe Biden and the far left radicals in the Democrat party. So Carl, again, that's right. Look, try to what we know is originally they were actually sent in fentanyl itself to the United States through international mail express consignment. You know, myself and the drugstore, we actually went over to China. And over the years, we've made a pretty good progress to reduce that. Well, what did China do? They just adjusted their tactics. Instead of sending fentanyl directly to the United States through express consignment international, they just started sending a precursor chemicals directly to Mexico, who hired their own chemicals, a chemist and created super labs, and they're making their own synthetic drugs. And that's what's so frustrating to me. It's like pick a state. It doesn't matter. Vermont, New York, Montana. If you have a if you have an overdose of fentanyl, Carl, I guarantee you that fentanyl came from the southwest border. But when we talk about it and here at the local news, we talked about this public health epidemic of fentanyl and we talk about all the deficits causing, but they never connected to the southwestern. And that's what's so frustrating.
Sebastian Is Joined In-Studio by the Love of His Life Katie Gorka
"This is a very special interview. Why? Because I get to share with you my love of my life and to talk about the incredible work she's been doing, not only in the administration as a presidential point to the problem of Homeland Security, then the press secretary for customs and border protection where you worked with Mark Morgan, who's a huge supporter of the show. And then now, as senior fellow at the heritage foundation for civil society, but let's begin at the beginning. I've known you for quite some time. Yes, you have. And we met in Eastern Europe in Romania. I was working for the Hungarian government defense ministry after the fall of communism. You were working for a New York think tank helping in the democratization process in Central Europe. Share a little bit about your journey because when I met you, allegedly, there were only two charities you gave to. And 8 charity and a gun control chat. And gay men's health crisis. Gay men's health crisis and gun control ink. And I think your life has changed somewhat in the last 26 years. Yes, it has. Why? Talk to us your journey and how you look at this nation we live in now. Well, I think the important thing is that so many young people who got a terrible education overall, I did not understand this country at all. I did not love this country. I would not say I was a patriot. I remember growing up in a part of Long Island. I remember maybe when I was about 6, a 4th of July parade with the streamers woven through my bike spokes and the good humor ice cream and that's kind of the last act of patriotism. I remember, because you go to school, I mean granted, this was a while ago, but let's say this would have been, you know, I was growing up in the 70s. It was not a great time to be an American.

"I got to ask one last question, Mark. And this has flown by. We could do this for hours, follow this man to work, go to heritage, join today the conservative mother trip that's heritage. Why is this administration? I mean, you've been working this for decades now. Why do you think they're doing this? Because as somebody pointed out, no nation on earth does it. No nation, even the richest, like Switzerland. Opens the board and says, anybody is welcome and you can get away with coming here illegally. What's the real reason? Yeah. And knowing when you do that, you're going to navy impact every aspect of our nation's public health safety, national security, right? So they are legitimately putting our country in danger. Why? I see really two things going on. One is a perceived political benefit. Remember, illegal aliens are counted as part of the census. Right, so even if they don't vote for you, you got it. You're going to be able to redistrict and get more votes, especially in Democrat states if that's where they end up. So it's just warm bodies that are used to apportion congressional seats. That's a huge point, yes. It is the second part of the political aspect is they believe that every single alien they find a pathway to citizenship is going to vote democratic. So you have a duality of the public issue, but then it's something that I've seen when I started off 35 years serving this country that have never seen is you've got an infusion of the politics that we just described, but also ideologues. I've never seen so many ideal logs infused in the federal government. Correct. That's exactly right. And I think secretary mayorkas is the top of the list. Yeah, that's right. He does not care Sebastian about anything. He doesn't care about the second third order negative impacts the country. He only cares about pursuing his personal ideology. That's it. I'm not a manager. I'm not a leader of men. I've always been a bit of an iconoclast, and I don't do well with authority. But the idea of being the head of an agency of any size or any team, how many people at DHS over 240,000. 240,000 and then going to work in knowing that everything you're committed to is going to hurt not just the country, but the people working under you. I don't know how a human being does that. One word answer to this, president Trump comes back if people like you and Tom Holman are brought back into the fold. Can this be fixed? Absolutely can. Look, we already did it. In part, we just have to pull the truck playbook off the shelf dusted off, reinstitute it and we're halfway there. It's been done already. It can be done again, dear Friends. We need people like Mark Morgan to be cloned. And we'd need him back in government..

"Is America first one on one with me, your host Sebastian gorka from his strategist to president Trump and member of the Defense Department's national security education board. That was the individual responsible for your security for the Homeland Security of this nation. Alejandro mayorkas secretary of the Department of Homeland Security being asked by congressman chip Roy, a very seemingly technical question but I think you get the gist. Do you the man who has the responsibility have operational control of the border and Majorca said yes. I know somebody who thinks very differently on the topic served honorably this nation in multiple facilities in and out of uniform, including commissioner of customs and border protection in the Trump administration. He's in studio, none other than the heritage foundations and fairs commissioner Mark Morgan Mark. Welcome in studio. Thanks for having me, Sebastian. I could see the your neck arteries expanding as you were listening to that cut. We'll get to that in a second for those who see you everywhere. Speaking truth fully about what's happening on the border, but who may not know everything you've done in your past before you got to be the commissioner for CBP. Tell us all the different ways you've served this nation, give us a little summary of Mark Morgan's history. I appreciate it, Sebastian. Look, I've served this country for 35 years. I started off. I listed in the United States Marine Corps on his 19, later became a commissioned officer in the Marine Corps. I was a police officer for the Los Angeles Police department. I served over two decades in the FBI, and I was also chief of the border patrol before I later became active director of ice and then acting director of customs and border protection. God bless you, thank you for all the service actually given that you have that Leo background as well in a municipality. I'm going to talk to you about those issues later in our hour. But let's talk about that clip from trip Roy. Operational control, whether it's in the military sense of a battlefield or a carrier group or the border. What is operational control really mean Mark Morgan? Yeah, so look, in this case and the term, it's in the 2000 secure fence act. So I really encourage those that are watching listening to show. Take 5 minutes of Google that. It really is, they've got that term from an old military term, right? And it means just what it means. And just what it says, operational patrol, in this case, a linear miles of a border means, you have 100% control of what is coming into our country from the borders. It's very clear. It doesn't say some. It doesn't say most. It says all. And so when the secretary said all, it was an abject lie. Sebastian, and he also did a lie on top of life because he also said the secretary of 2019 20 would have said the same thing. That's a lie too, because I was a commissioner there. And this is what I used to always say. When I used to ask that question, because I knew what the definition is by law. And I would never say we had operational control. What I did say, what the truth is, is that under president Trump, we have the most secure border and our lifetime and every single day the border was getting more secure..

"We're back with heritage senior distinguished fellow. You can join heritage with heritage, Mark Morgan, former commissioner for the Trump administration for CBP. He served in the military. He's served in the FBI. He has, well, he is, 'cause marines never really retire. There is no such thing as an ex marine. So gonna get your response Mark. This is Oliver North another great marine who had something to say about people in the military being punished because I guess their body isn't their body anymore. Cut 11. Well, if you start discharging people that we need in the service, right now, the army is paying the maximum premium that they can to recruit people into the United States Army. This is not the time to be throwing people out of the army just because they would not take this vaccine. I don't see how that improves readiness whatsoever. And Congress had to stand up and say, you can't do it. We reported last week air force officer officially reprimanded on her record by her commander because despite being allergic to the vaccine, she she's not allowed to say I can't take it. So as a former marine as somebody who has served this nation for decades, your reaction to these policies from the Biden administration. Yeah, I tell you what. I'm right with former lieutenant Carl Oliver North. I think he's right on this. I think it does not enhance our readiness. I think it erodes the readiness. And I got to tell you, I know these individuals. Some of these have dedicated ten, 15 years of their life, all of us in faithful service to this country. They sacrifice a lot. Their families have sacrificed a lot. And this, at the end of the day, some of them have served in a war zone, have sacrificed so much and this is what they utilize to kick them out of the military. It's nonsensical. It's talk about unpatriotic. Yeah, absolutely. An outrage, something has to be done about it, especially after the Supreme Court decision. Let's talk about the FBI as decision to go after the January 6th so called rioters and the comparison with what the attorney general has done with regards to parents across the nation. Is there going to be a point at which somebody pushes back and says, we're not going to use the national security division against parents who haven't committed a crime Mark? Yes. Look, I really appreciate this question again. 20 years in the FBI, this is somewhat challenging for me to talk about, but another aspect is not because I do believe that it's moments like this that define leadership. And so my question has been, as we talked about a few minutes ago, where's the leadership? Where is director ray? What DoJ when the AG came down with this nonsensical attack on parents and related to school board, where was the director director of the FBI to get on national TV and unequivocally push back and tell American people restore the trust and make sure that they knew that there was no way under his watch that the FBI would be utilized for political purposes. Hard stop. He should have done that. It was a defining moment for his leadership. He failed to do so. Yeah, that's, I mean, just imagine that such an amazing scenario you just described, if ray, I mean, I know he wouldn't, as a former special agent told me he's been basically hiding under his desk since he became the director. If he'd said the administration, this is not right. This is not why the FBI was created, and I'm not going to do it. That could have sent an incredible message through the whole bureau to everybody who says there that finally we may be able to tack back to where we were and to win back the support of the American people. I've actually dedicated the next episode of the gold care reality track to just how broken the FBI is so guys.

Calvin Robinson and so much more wherever you are, whatever you're doing, stay on this channel. All of us here today understand an eternal truth. Every child is a precious and sacred gift from God. Together we must protect cherish and defend the dignity and the sanctity of every human life. When we see the image of a baby in the womb, we glimpse the majesty of God's creation. The majesty of God's creation, incredible words from the only serving president of the United States to ever address the march for life in person. I was there listening to my former boss an incredible moment and just speaking the truth about the precious and sacred gift that is every child. We are on the cusp of the march for life. We will not see Joe Biden at that event celebrating the unborn. It is perhaps we are perhaps on the dawn of a new age when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable in our society and from the Hosea initiative we are delighted to have in studio. None other than Terry beatley, Terry, welcome back to America first. Hey Sebastian, I'm glad I'm back on. Thank you. So are you excited with this case in front of the Supreme Court with roe V wade potentially being overturned? I know we can't tempt fate, but we have faith. So tell us about how you are feeling right now in the battle for the unborn. I'm very encouraged. I'm super encouraged. I mean, we do have the chance of overturning roe V wade and all that means is the issue finally comes back to the states. This is important. This is not banning abortion in America because the Supreme Court can't do that. It just does what should happen in this nation. The decision goes back to the states because we are republic of states. And then what happens? And then what happens is I call it the battle for education. And here's the beautiful thing is the abortion issue can not maintain status quo in debating it, because logic, because truth, we can shine lighten all the dark places. So abortion will not stand, but at least it's going to be, it'll collapse due to education and enlightenment when people understand that we've been duped from.

"Marc morgan of the trump administration now the heritage foundation and with a fair mark. Let's focus we've done one hypothetical with regards to the refugees. Enough ghanistan could have exploited by jihadists. Let's talk about the obvious thing. If i'm a bad guy if i'm going to read team what the bad guys thinking and what they're preparing to do with a border regime is literally being dismantled since you were running it and since president trump started the wall. Find a bad guy. And i didn't get onto one of our c- seventeens. I'm just going to get myself to mexico and walk across the border and do terrorism here in in america is that is that out of the question. Nos nasa basha getting to look at intelligence community. If those there'd be an honest will tell you the same thing. Here's what we do know. All the rhetoric this ministration though saying that one terrorist organization how the fighting with one tears organization. That's all bunk because reality is all the terrorist organizations now fully operated freely in afghanistan. Have all one thing in common their hatred for america and their unwavering commitment to do us harm remains and so they're going to continue as they happen looking for every single vol- ability to do that mission to do us harm and right now. One of the biggest vulnerabilities that this country has is our southern border. You know let me give you just real quick because a couple of staff because forty fifty percent of resources have been pulled off the line to process the two hundred twelve thousand. Were getting every single large air. The borders are wide open. Unsecure this fiscal year alone estimate. I'm being conservative. Three hundred and forty thousand. God always think about that sebastian. Three hundred forty thousand. God always illegal aliens that made a passer frontline defense and made their way into this country every town city state among them are criminals gang members etc. But also keep in mind with support of that. Is we've apprehended a hundred digital from one hundred forty different countries and this year. Fourteen apprehensions of folks beyond the fbi's terrorist screening database. Think about that that that impacts every aspect or natural health national safety and our national security. It should be terrifying but monk. Shouldn't we call all of these people got away because if cb if if the agencies that catch people who don't have a criminal record that we know of give them money an id card and a plane ticket boston then they're all kinds of ways. Yeah he's the best point you know right now. You're pretty somebody they have. No documents whatsoever border patrol. The they come on. There's no way that they can legitimately verify who all these people are. Our silver lisa in the communities never heard again sebastian. You're absolutely right. We don't know enough about these individuals that were intentionally and willfully aloun in in our country and then we have the unaccompanied minor issue as well at the children that you mentioned in the break especially you are talking to right now just came out just that that under this administration specifically hhs health and human services who are responsible for the resettlement of unaccompanied minors they can't for almost forty percent of the unaccompanied minors that have been released in the united states. That equates about forty five thousand unaccompanied minors. And i'm smoking a little bit because this is just another example of the lies and hypocrisy coming out and ministration but what is not funny is what's happened. Those forty five thousand. We know that this administration just like an afghanistan. they have traded speed for substance in the vetting process. The vetting process almost non-existent. Now they're getting kids to sponsors as fast as they can not doing proper betty and now the results are they. Don't know where forty percent of margaret we've we do know there's a good percentage of them the end up being traffic and that is. What is the most inhumane thing this country is doing. This is the point. That you've got alejandro. My yorkers at the head of the saying the system is working. It's working so well that forty five thousand unaccompanied. Minors cannot be traced by this administration. It is a disgrace and inhuman heritage. Foundation's mark morgan. I'm sebastian gorka. God bless you.

"The refugees not only stock at the kabul airport but landing here in america being whisked away from dulles airport to who knows where. Let's talk to somebody who has something to say about the issue former commissioner for the customs and border protection agency now with the heritage foundation. Mum morgan welcome back to american. I thank sebastian. For having me. I gotta go straight for the jugular. We are hearing again and again and again from alejandro llorca. Dhs from the state department. Today from anthony blinken that they have a rigorous vetting process for the over one hundred and twenty thousand afghans who have being flown out on our military flights. I just how do you do vexing for example for a person who has no documents. And whose data isn't on any system we own. Can you explain the wizardry of this administration to me now. Jackie sebastian. Look you just what you just talk about. Common sense look a couple of things. We that are factual based not spending misdirection. Come from this administration. First of all the military commanders. Their their mission is very clear from the white house. It was all about fast fast fast. Get people on planes as fast as possible. Look i've been serving this country for thirty five years. I've been involved in operations. Where fast took precedent over other things. When that happens things fall through the cracks. There is no doubt that people getting on that plane that we knew. Virtually nothing about sebastian. It looks the factor detail in this. We've already heard about people got onto planes that later. They found derogatory information that they were connected to the taliban they were connected to isis here in dallas. We had an afghan refugee that landed in dole's in america that was actually deported. Previously convicted being convicted of rape it goes on and on and real quick. Here's another spin and misdirection that they're giving the american people right now. The majority of individuals from afghanistan come here are not those v applicants or holders the ones that risked their lives to help american citizens their general refugees we know even less about them and general application process for sl sl beat it takes months if not over a year to do proper vetting. Extensive that multi step procedure. And now. they're able to do that. Dais not believe it. It's just not true. And what happens if if somebody had this is just a hypothetical but if the majority of these people are in fact not. Siv's not former interpreted just somebody who said i'm going to america. I'm gonna get on that plane and we find out. They don't meet the requirements for asylum for refugee status. We'll give them back to the taliban ghanistan so what happens then. Mark it exactly sebastian. I mean said it better myself in. That's the commonsense approach. Look i. I know you talked about this. We're the most compassionate country in the face of the planet. That's what makes america great. I also believe we have a moral obligation to take care of those that actually took care of our uniform personnel in afghanistan. But that doesn't mean that we should be devoid of all common sense. Look we also have a responsibility to make sure we have an extensive robust betty process. So here's a here's a thought for them. Slow down slow down the afghans. Now that have left and they're in third countries like rammstein. Jeremy they're out of the meat harm's way slowdown mixing. Vetting processes done there before one afghan steps flipping american soil. How about that for an option. I love it but let let me run a hypothetical. Pass you. Tell me if this is looney tunes or whether this is in fact highly likely hundred. Twenty four thousand people. I think that we've flown out of kabul thousands of roy d. here in the united states other of the so-called lily pad locations in partner countries on on on a basis or their basis. What if there is a guy ten guys or one hundred guys who were fighters for some militia warlord in a specific province. We never caught them in during operations in afghanistan therefore that name that biometric data their fingerprint don't exist in any database that we have access to but they fall thought for whatever reason. Whoa there are planes flying to america right now from kabul. I'm going to get me onto one of those planes. That individual is welcomed by off forces. Because that's what they've been told to do that. Packed onto one of those c- seventeens flown to dulles airport. And that given that status of parolee. Or what have you given the temporary. Id card and as the state trooper. I heard from was instructed. Virginia if they leave the concourse and the group that that is escorting them you on not to stop them. You're not to impede them. They are allowed to go wherever they want by themselves. We have we. We just allowed into america. A member of the taliban. Is that hypothetical. Impossible is it crazy. Nossa bashan it's not an hope your listeners. Paying close attention everything you just said is absolutely possible and let me use secretary meyer. His own intelligence group. That said just last week that they cannot rule out the possibility that you just described. Those are their words not mine. Think about that and again in afghanistan. There is no way that they were properly vet improve. Look the taliban. We don't think they could exploit just as you described. Think about it. They were able to pull off the worst terrorist attack against american soldiers over a decade. You don't think they could have got some false documents real quick and border one of the c. Seventeen leaving every forty five minutes and they chaotic rush to get afghans out of i. Of course that's poss- i have to ask you. We've only got one minute left in this segment with you. But as a former marine i i need to ask you your reaction to what happened the attack on your fellow marines. Look that's why. I'm wearing a united states marine corps pen right now so batch and i'm gonna continue wearing that look i i hate to second guess. Military leaders on the battlefield. So i'm not gonna do that. But what i am to do. A second guessed the president united states and this administration who gave them the order to carry out what was really a chaotic horribly done evacuation. I hold this administration responsible..
