"The National Guard is called out to deal with all the refugees fleeing bad conditions in their countries to come to the U.S. by way of Florida. In an executive order, the Florida governor calls on the guard to deploy planes and helicopters to help deal with what he says has been about 8000 migrants encountered off the Florida coast since August, many trying to make it through the Florida straits. He directs Florida police and other agencies to supply resources to local governments as they respond. The move comes nearly a week after local officials reported at least 500 migrants arrived in the Florida keys over new year's weekend. I'm Scott Carr.

Our firsthand look at the southern border. I'm Pam poso. Fox News, President Biden is flying to El Paso, Texas, it's his first visit to the border since being elected president. There's no doubt that there is a problem at the border. And President Biden recognizes it and it's common sense. We need to secure the border, but also have the humanity. House Democrat ro Khanna, Republicans have been pleading with the president to stop there. For two years, they had the house. They had the Senate. They had The White House, why in the world why in the world didn't they get an immigration solution? Joe Biden refused to visit the border when they controlled all of government to talk about any type of solution and they've allowed now frankly a situation where we no longer have a border. House Republican Jim Jordan both men on Fox News Sunday. Republicans now control the House of Representatives and tomorrow could be another big day speaker Kevin McCarthy was narrowly elected after making a series of concessions to conservatives.

There has to be accountability in our system of government, especially in the House of Representatives, but House minority leader hakim Jeffries of New York said on a NBC's meet the press. If members don't like a speaker, it could undermine many issues. Help the safety and the well-being of the American people. It may undermine national security and a robust defense.

"Can I got your tongue Call for a ball and call 877-381-3811 right now for Mike Levin. All right, that governor desantis started his briefing. We're going to go live right to it. That's the only way on Santa bell and captiva island. So the operations to help people there have been mostly by air. In all told search and rescue operations, it started in the wee hours of the morning. As soon as the winds died down enough to where it was safe, you had coast guard assets. You had urban search and rescue teams. We've had the National Guard out assisting people. There have been more than 700 confirmed rescues and there's likely many more than that that will be confirmed as more data comes in. People have been rescued from places like Fort Myers, Fort Myers beach, sanibel, Marco island, as well as the barrier islands in Charlotte, county, obviously there was a lot of calls coming in as the storm was really raging yesterday. People who did not evacuate were hunkered down. There was storm surge, there was a lot of apprehension, understandably when initially the first responders came this morning. People would wave them down, whether they were by helicopter boat or high water vehicle. Now what they're finding is on places like sanibel, most of the residents are just waving. Thank you for coming, but they say that they're fine. And that they're staying put now. I think that there's going to be issues with being on some of those islands because they're not going to have services like we expect for quite some time given the limitations of transportation, but nevertheless, that's a sign that some of the folks who did ride it out are stabilized in their home. They are first responders are doing targeted searches, just going home by home, checking to see if people are okay and then responding to specific reports if they're missing loved ones. There will, of course, be many more rescues that are added to the tiller. Now we absolutely expect to have mortality from this hurricane that are just caution people. There's a process by where that is confirmed and I know the people have said certain things in terms of confirmed that will be made a parent over the coming days. But I think the things that have been said out there, that is not something that has been confirmed at this juncture. Of course, we have thousands and thousands of people on the ground working to restore power, opening the roads, bringing in food and water and restoring communications, talking with local folks and Lee county, probably the biggest immediate hurdle that they're facing is their county water utility, had a big water main break. That is necessary to be fixed in order to provide basic water services for the residents of the county, so they have been working to troubleshoot it. They requested the state to enlist federal support to help diagnose and potentially fix the problem. So we worked with fema and Gracia and the Army Corps of engineers came in. I mean, they came in pretty early. I think Kevin called them maybe like three in the morning. They were in Southwest Florida from Jacksonville by early this afternoon. And so they're helping to diagnose and hopefully be able to remedy that. But that's going to be something that's very, very important for the county to get fixed. In the meantime, we are assisting healthcare facilities to provide working water because they need that to be able to take care of their patients. So we're shuttling water from Lakeland into healthcare facilities. Right now they're about 20 trucks en route with 60,000 gallons of water for a total of 1.2 million gallons of water. And I think they have been able to fix some of the water ish one of the three hospitals has actually been able to fix the water problem there. So that's good news. Poor Tampa port Everglades. The fuel is flowing in to some of our major ports. And so you're seeing a lot of fuel now flowing throughout the state, more than 330 thousand gallons of fuel have already been moved into southwest Florida. I actually saw a couple of the gas stations open in the Fort Myers area when we were there today with this fuel, the state of Florida. Efforts, and we think the remaining you can put it back up in Florida will open between sometime tomorrow and sometime on Saturday. There's been a massive amount of supply staged. We're also bringing more into the region, more ambulances, more food water and ice, more generators, more actually we're bringing in two full service mechanical shops to help to repair and maintain emergency vehicles, which they're in rugged conditions when you're going through water and others, bringing in more tarps, bringing in kits for parents of infants and toddlers to give them ten days worth of support and bring in more high water ladders. Now as of 6 p.m., there are 2.6 million approximately reported power outages through throughout the state of Florida, and that was anticipated so far compared to this morning, 200,000 accounts have been restored in Southwest Florida, 28,000 in Lee, 62,000 in Sarasota, 14,000 in Collier, 33,000 in manatee, 12,000 in Charlotte and 44,000 in hillsborough, have been restored of course. The pre staging for this was over 42,000 linemen. So they're there on the ground really in different parts of the state, but particularly in Southwest Florida. When they first got in there, of course, they're looking to see what is the damage. How much of our infrastructure has been has been destroyed, how much of it has held up and I can tell you when we were in Charlotte, the reports were generally positive that a lot of that infrastructure had been able to weather the storm. You still have to work, obviously, to reconnect the power, but in some areas you may need to rebuild from the ground up and other areas where the infrastructure maintained integrity, you would be more just trying to re hook everything. So that's a 24/7 process. So if anybody sees some of the utility trucks pulled over somewhere and maybe someone getting rest understand they're working constant shifts and everyone's on the clock the whole time and they don't actually ever have a time where people are not working. So we really appreciate that because we understand how important it is for folks to have those basic services resume. Of course, damages to cell phone towers, a particularly in places like Lee county, the telecom companies have brought in, they earmarked a hundred cell phone towers being set up and many of those are being set up in Southwest Florida. I've been able to speak with CEOs of both AT&T and T mobile while there have been damages. A lot of their infrastructure has weathered the storm fairly well. So while there may need to be repairs, they feel good about getting up service. And I know some people do have service in those areas and we were able to see that. F dot had more than 1200 personnel in the ground and I'm happy to report the road situation is by and large really good. I think if I was just talking with Kevin before we came out here, if we were here yesterday at like noon thinking about what the road situation would look like, I think we thought that there would have been way, way more roads that were blocked by debris, of course we did have the sanibel. I mean, there are issues, but there is also a lot of roads where the traffic is flowing on I 75 without a problem. And most of the other roads are doing really well. Sunshine skyway bridge has reopened. And so we were happy to see that. Most school districts throughout the state will be reopening either Friday or Monday. Obviously Lee and some of those areas may be a little bit different calculation for them. We're thankful that fema has activated individual assistance for floridians who have been affected by this storm if you are in need of help recovering, visit disaster assistance dot gov or call

Roger Schulman: It's Too Late to Evacuate

"I was talking, we were asking, I was asking you about evacuation, I know governor desantis said it's essentially too late now to evacuate. Why is that? Is it just because of the rapidly deteriorating conditions? That's exactly it. If somebody gets stuck, there's no way to safely rescue them. The flooding can be bad. They've shut down the skyway bridge, which is the main bridge between the Tampa Bay Area and Sarasota manatee, which means people can't get over that. The winds are much higher now and around noon we're expecting this thing to actually hit with the very high winds. So if somebody gets out there, gets stuck, they're going to be in the middle of it, so better to stay where they are as dangerous as it is to be outside in the elements themselves.
