As New York City continues to receive busloads of migrants from the southern border, the city is trying to figure out how to shelter them. Fox's Nate foy reports. The Bronx parking lot will soon be the city's first migrant tent facility. It will be big enough for 1000 migrants. And the mayor's office says they've received 13,600 migrants so far from Texas. And with the shelters straight in the city, this is meant to ease that burdens. The migrants will come here directly from the port authority. They'll be given food water and medical help, but this will be a short term solution for migrants traveling alone. Families will get a bit more privacy with different accommodations. Migrants will stay here for between one and four days before moving elsewhere like possibly a hotel room, and mayor Eric Adams addressed concerns that migrants are being treated better than homeless New Yorkers. Florida democratic senator Jason pizzo telling cavuto live why he requested an emergency injunction to keep the state's Republican governor from flying more migrants out of Florida. Governor Ron DeSantis recently had a plane of Venezuelan migrants transported to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. I wouldn't be filing a lawsuit for injunctive relief if 48 people were here in Florida. I wouldn't have a challenge to it would have standing to have a challenge. And this is simply the economics and vital critical resources that we're spending outside of the state of Florida for political purposes. Meanwhile, a dog in Florida, who's the victim of animal cruelty, gets the happy ending. The dog was placed in a plastic container and thrown off a bridge at Orange County sheriff's deputy was able to rescue the dog after 30 minutes of crawling through brush and scaling a 15 foot wall.

"All right, thank you, Nathan. It is 6 O 7 on Wall Street. We bring in Michael Barr now to find out what else is going on in New York and around the world, good morning, Michael. Good morning, Amy, New York City health officials believe 5 people have died in a Manhattan nursing home of legionnaires disease. The outbreak over the past year took place at the Amsterdam nursing home in morningside heights. Authorities say four deaths have been confirmed to be connected to legionnaires, officials are investigating the 5th death. Florida governor Ron DeSantis is being sued by a state lawmaker for allegedly wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars in state funds to fly dozens of Venezuelan migrants to Martha's Vineyard Massachusetts in what critics have called a political stunt that tricked vulnerable immigrants. Florida state democratic senator Jason pizzo from Miami also asked the court to stop Santa's from transporting any more migrants to other states. Meanwhile, desantis says about $10,000 paid to an aviation company to fly migrants to Delaware has not been put to use. He was vague though about payments for sending migrants north. The policy is, we want to voluntarily transport away from Florida so that we don't have to bear the cost. And there's a vendor that is doing that for us. Governor desantis made his comments at a news conference in Miami dade. Voting has begun in Moscow held regions of Ukraine on referendums to become part of Russia. Ukraine and the west have denounced them as shams without any legal force. The referendums follow president Vladimir Putin order to have partial mobilization that could add to about 300,000 Russian troops to the fight. Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, William Taylor says Putin is looking for ways out of the war now that Ukrainian advances have made peace talks less likely. He's running out of soldiers. He thinks by instituting this draft or this call up, he may be able to replace these soldiers that he's losing day after day on the battlefield. Former ambassador Taylor spoke to ABC. NASA plans to slam a small harmless asteroid as an experiment. A spacecraft named dart for double asteroid redirection test will zero in on the asteroid Monday in ten on slamming it head on at 14,000 mph. Scientists say the impact should be just enough to nudge the asteroid into a slightly tighter orbit around its companion space rock, NASA scientist Tom statler. At the end of the day, the real question is, how effectively did we move the asteroid and can this technique of kinetic impact be used in the future if we ever need it to? NASA's Tom statler says the asteroid is about 6.8 million miles away.

"We believe it. Now, I will say this. There is a warning on the cover of the pamphlet. Oh my. Which it feels like they're kind of like trying to spirit of a good trigger warning here. Probably should have been above the title. But it says warning truth reveals evil hearts. Please suppress any hatred or violence you may feel dot, dot, dot. Oh my God. Wow. These poor persons. That is genuinely impressive to me. Our in your God sucks, our God's better. No, don't be a dick about this. Yeah. And then has a couple says a couple more things on it. And then down at the bottom, it says, learn why Jesus is the one true God of Native Americans. I guess so. Jesus isn't God. Well, he's part of the Trinity, according to these people, probably. Trinitarian ism isn't even in the Bible. No. I'm shocked. This doesn't change how they believe. But they do believe that okay, fine. Fine, Jesus is a God, divinity of Jesus. That's fine. You can have whatever belief you want. It's all bullshit. It's what they believe, right? Yeah. The leaders of the reservation, they issued a statement. And in it, they say, the ability to practice the faith of our choosing voice our concerns and address our problems is based on one underlying principle respect. While the president and the council adhere to the oglala Lakota constitution's Bill of rights, the president and council also have an obligation to ensure that the colonizing principles of the past are not asserted against the Lakota people again. Yeah. And with that, they're asking this group to please leave, it's a little more complicated apparently mission center, whatever, is sitting on property that they do own the deed. They do hold the deed too. But they might just have to stay there. So they have a mission like they have a church within the reservation somewhere or maybe immediately Jason or I don't know how. I don't know how they're specific reservation is set up and all of that. But yeah, they're there. And they're focus is the Lakota people and they're sitting there and they can not imagine why they're being discriminated against discriminated against. Yeah. When they come in just guns ablazing against the culture and history and traditions of this people who very rightly are concerned about the white outsiders. Now Frank. What? The bottom of their own pamphlet says, hey, you don't get to persecute us about this. And yet they're getting persecuted. It says it right on the bottom of the pamphlet, Frank. I mean, I know. Imagine how big a dick you have to be. To think that it is okay to plop yourself down in somebody else's territory. And then just start printing up literature about how shitty their religion is and how they need to join your religion. That's missionary. That is, that is some missionary work. That is the whole point. You are buying the land. Owning the like if you're just traveling around distributing hate speech, you know, like they do, that's one thing. But buying the land. Having a building. It feels stronger. I know, I know. At least they bought the land, I guess. We didn't just take it. I hope they overpaid. Oh my God, that is amazing. Yeah. Okay, well, I'm gonna let's stick with the asshole theme and go to Arkansas. We've talked about Arkansas state senator Jason rapert before. This is the dickhead that put up the ten commandments in front of the in front of the state capitol and there was a whole kerfuffle about that. There's a new thing that's happening. Rapert, who is who was an avid Christian. As a lawmaker. Okay. Obviously, because he put up the ten commandments. He started blocking there was pushback from atheists on his social media, et cetera. And he started blocking them. Well, it turns out that if you are a government official and you have, you know, you have that kind of you have accounts, you have social media, you don't get to block the people that you are meant to be serving. Oh. You have to, you have to just sort of take it. Okay, right. Like if you're being abused. That's where I was going to come in and yes. So yeah, okay, that makes sense. And that's a good thing. Okay. Yeah. You literally have to engage with your constituents. That is, that's your job. And so, and so the American atheists, along with some of the people that were specifically singled out, are suing rapert. Okay. Now, there's a delightful little twist to this, which is that gave up his seat to run for, I think, lieutenant governor. Okay. And then

"Which ages me just a little bit but like we knew that this was going to happen When the moment that they decided to leak get evacuate last. That was going to be it. That was going to be the timer on the time bomb. And i'm sorry it's really at this. Point is nobody's fault. It just had to be it just had to happen. It sucks and it's messy and it's ugly surrendering and withdrawing is always a gli. Yeah the us. Withdrawal from south vietnam was ugly. Yep there's a reason why the. Us dill hasn't withdrawn from south korea. Japan germany you had to leave a long enough for them to demand that you'd leave your on their own accord 'cause it's like if you try to withdraw before then you're just gonna get your ass handed to you but the the if you stick around long enough to become the villain. Hey then leaving is a good thing. The us backed. Afghan government asked the us to leave yet. They didn't want us to stay past the august thirty first deadline. No like this was yeah was all according to plan any. I don't wanna talk about it anymore. Move onto something else. Yes arkansas. State senator jason. Robert is the state senator from a state other than idaho. That we talk about. The most sees awesome. Oh boy so federal judge. Kristine baker has set a september eight contempt. Hearing four mr robert and the satanic temple. She is considering holding both in contempt of court. Okay i want to hear the story here. Okay so in two thousand eighteen and yes. There was a long time ago but remember. There's a pandemic that really screwed up the court system just like everything else and our idea of time. Yeah several private citizens and arkansas sued secretary of state john thurston because he oversees the state capitol grounds which held a ten commandments monument claiming that it was the establishment of religion. Right in the course of the case these satanic temple joined the plaintiffs as an intercessor and jason robert and his american history and heritage foundation got sucked under the case because he was the sponsor of the bill and the foundation that he runs paid for the construction and installation of the monument. There's a shock the plaintiffs have asked for and the judge has agreed. They have a right to the name of who wrote the bill and the donors that paid for it right because if it's going to be on public grounds state ground good to now and they're digging into that so at this point they don't even know who paid for it No it was a semi religious nonprofit. So rapper isn't claiming that they don't have the documentation or that the court doesn't have a right to the documentation just that he doesn't have access to it to which the judges saying you're the president of the foundation. Get the records from your people. Yeah you absolutely do your name all over it. And we're about to prove it in response. Robert and the secretary of state's office have been trying to get access to the satanic temples. Actually this is specifically. The state of arkansas is trying to get access to the yanic temples tax filings because they are making the claim that the temple is actually a profit making enterprise and has joined the lawsuit in the interest of making a profit to drum up donations and make make money for lucien greaves and the other leaders of the temple. Okay okay cute. The satanic temple is saying that those tax filings are irrelevant because they're an intercessor to the case for intervening in the case. Not the plaintiff. Not the main. Not not one of the main plaintiffs. They're just helping out right. Well they're their taxes a bear beyond the up and up. They're going to be intervening on anybody. We should probably is. Yeah but i don't know whenever. I hear some conservative nonprofits. Say crap like that. I'm like oh what are you heidi. It sure doesn't look good. Doesn't look good for the temple. Just don't even it for the satanic temple. Jason rapper to be getting pulled into the same contempt of court. Hearing is really bad form. Yep they are yeah. It's kind of hilarious. This is like a tragedy of comedies or comedy of tragedies. I don't know how that goes but it's like oh man somebody messed up and that one little mistake is gonna trickle down and snowball until something like this happens. Yeah also jason. Rapper hates the judge. Take it personally. Hates this judge because he keeps getting sued. She keeps on getting the cases and she keeps ruling against him so awesome. She has ruled in favor once. And that was over a case where Three legal shit. He was blocking people on his social media accounts and he claimed qualified immunity as a legislator. she agreed with him but then allowed the case to proceed any way. Oh ouch he is actually claiming in this case. Also as far as who wrote the bill. He's refusing that information claiming legislative privilege. It was him obviously. No no no absolutely not. Oh it's he didn't write the bill that allowed the ten commandments. What's in what's the name of. There is a group that we've talked about a whole bunch of times. Oh they do take ma'am stuff all over the country. Yeah okay. yeah they write the bills. They supplied the funder. The the donors they just need somebody to sign off on it. They just need somebody to take the fall. I mean sign off on somebody to sign the bill and.

Longtime foreign policy analyst Aaron David Miller is with us now. Good morning. Good morning. Now where do you stand on the U. S withdrawal?

And, frankly, um, extrication believing? Is not the standard by which you want to judge the political and military performance of probably the most consequential, uh, actor on Earth.

Most of that, with the exception of killing Osama bin Laden and weakening Al Qaeda have all fallen flat. And the majority of the country. Afghans remain poor and disenfranchised.

It's just not the picture that Americans hope to see, and it's going to remain a poster child for the president. Highly politicized, warm, I suspect, um largely by Republicans and critics of the president. As to why we should not have withdrawn. There are also a lot of Afghans who bought into these ideas that the Americans brought with them that the country should be more democratic that the country should be freer, particularly women who have gained rights over the last couple decades. What does the United States so two Afghan civilians who had like women who had no rights under the Taliban?

"And has salt water truth and in corrosive elements. You have to imagine that the the structure itself the integrity is going to, you know, have accelerated deterioration is compared to something that's built 30 miles inland somewhere high and dry. How concerned are other residents in Surfside and and maybe even in surrounding towns and cities, counties about their high rise potentially being at risk. Are you hearing that from your constituents? We are. I mean, we are You know, I probably represents 15 cities like you know, and I have all of Miami Beach. I have always Surfside. I have all of Sunny Isles Beach. They Harbour Island, South Harbor, North Bay Village. Real condo intense and have the majority of my district or condo structures. I live in a condo with, you know, with my family. Um, but, you know, we're really trying to impress upon people is not to be, um, You know, we don't want to create sort of any hysteria. Now you have to balance it politically. I think the mayor I think county Mayor has done a very good job of saying we're immediately going to be addressing buildings are the same. Age and height and so on and so forth at the same time, not trying to trade to Syria. If you're in a building that was built the last, you know 25 30 years completely different construction schedule because Hurricane Andrew itself in 92 also change the Florida building code extensively. So you know there is a voluntary evacuation, even though the sister building of you know if you're living in that building like this can happen here as well. However, the superintendent of the building for many years that collapsed I told a local reporter that there was always water intrusion. He always constantly, you know, trying to maintain and replace pumps to get the water out of the out of the parking space with bubble. However, his counterpart at the sister building said he was always your phone dry. Um, so you know, Mother nature underneath climate change. You know, whatever the contributing factors, you know, people should not. It's not be hysterical, obviously very easy to say that What we are hearing is, you know when headlines for the media sometimes it's my building safe. You know, there are a number of issues I will. I will tell you that climate that we're in a building collapsing like this is an extraordinary event on the good way, obviously, But you know, there are more protein factor is whether it's mold or mildew, or, you know things collapsing inside of the unit is far more of a danger right now, the people's health and my safety I'm joined by Florida State Senator Jason Pizzo. You can follow him on Twitter. He's done just a fantastic job updating the community and everyone really on what's happening down in Surfside at S E N pizzo again. That's his Twitter handle when it comes to this particular building that collapsed. Did you ever hear anything about issues with that building? Are you hearing from constituents and residents or former residents? That maybe there were more red flags than perhaps we've known over the years are realized. One of the one of the issues in the dynamics that play with association with board members, especially is kind of self policing it away, and they don't have a heightened duty or obligation that extends beyond the basic by the history obligation. It's sort of like a mutual company, so to speak. You know if there's a lawsuit, the resident you know, sometimes saying lawsuit there's little incentive outside of having general concern of reporting these things. But we have not done a very good job of establishing a structure where notice. You know, Certified or actual notice, uh, to another government entity itself. Remember, these are volunteers. All association doesn't matter. Super luxury, or you know, or, you know, lower income. Whatever it is. These are voluntary position. There really is no sort of public duty like there is for elected officials and a lot of the stuff that we filed on as it relates to condos over the past couple years Legislature Seeks to heighten sort of duty and obligation. Now, most of the complaints we get we get complaints every single day by email by text by boat Ball to our office is used typically related to the production of records or finances or election issues. I left up Inside of associations. Now, if you have an association that wants to retain their position, you know almost in perpetuity until the Legislature the wisdom to put caps on over 10 years, But if you want these people to remain in these people want to remain in position. They're going to artificially suppressed association. I'll give you a perfect example. You have the time. A couple of years ago we had yet again It looked like it was a perennial thing, but I was fairly new. But the issue came up of the retro fitting and installation of what sprinkler system in older buildings over a certain height. You know they were just not compliant or the code at the time didn't require it. And there was for life safety issues. What seemed like a legitimate push to to mandate that you retrofit buildings with sprinkler system because certain ladders can't reach that high people are building, however. You have to balance that with Well, you had associations that you know, sort of artificially like I said, Suppressed association peace for so long. They were not fiscally responsible. They did not put enough away in reserves and when estimates came out in the middle of session as to what this would cost The average condo person looking at 10 $12,000. And you have the elderly, You know, constituents on fixed income and all of a sudden you get settled at assessment. It's like, all right, I have to Legitimately ask myself Do I want to be the legislator? That both? No on this bill, and then doctor did someone's grandmother dies in an apartment fire? You know you don't wanna be in that position. However, the the more realistic and instant kind of detriment is going to be the thousands of people who it's cost prohibitive to go ahead and retrofit the building and what seems more sort of realistic and the practical result of of making a mandate like that is going to be displacing people out of phones they can no longer afford. In the effort of saving somebody. Now, nobody ever wants to go through that balancing tricks. So Brian when I'm really looking at for all of these things, whether it's a tightening of sort of re certifications of making it more comprehensive, accelerating the timeline from 40 years 20 years Right now. This re certification process is only applicable to Miami Dade and Broward County, not to the 65 other counties, especially the coastal ones, which are most concerned, but the actuary Add insurance company who ensure these buildings. It is nourished to their benefit to really know the physical plant the structure of the buildings that they're ensuring and if they if they believe At these inspections, you know, you know warrants either having to raise the premium there. Actuaries and engineers tell them you know their fatal flaws and buildings and stuff like that. That.

"Arkansas governor. Asa hutchinson on tuesday signed into law legislation banning all abortions in the state a sweeping measure that supporters hope will force the us supreme court to revisit its landmark roe v wade decision but opponents vowed to block before it takes effect later this year. The republican governor had expressed reservations about the bill which only allows the procedure to save the life of the mother and does not provide exceptions for those impregnated in an active rape or incest. Arkansas is one of at least fourteen states.
