Alright Steve Gregory and is with us on I am in a Hey, look Atyou, buddy buddy. Alright, so big, huge celebration yesterday with the Los Angeles Lakers. Well, it started out kind of like a celebration and ended in civil unrest. What do you mean? Well, Immediately following the championship in downtown Los Angeles at Staples Center. Ah, few 1000 people were gathered outside, as the LAPD calls them revelers, right and things were going pretty well. Then, all the seven they started throwing Traffic cones. Why not cars? Ah, glass bottles at police officers, rocks of police officers started kicking in plate glass windows of nearby businesses and starting trash the trash inside of trash cans on fire, And then it all kind of devolved from there, which point LAPD declared a order to disperse. Very few of them complied, and the rest of them went and damaged more than 30 buildings and businesses around right, including the Torching oven empty a bus after they went and vandalized and broke all the windows and painted by the way spray painted Kobe's name all over the place, including the windows being broken. A lot of people are spray painting Kobe's name in his daughter's name all over the place. What a night and I seem to recall 10 years ago, the same thing happening after the Lakers won I will also remember the King's winning the Stanley Cup and being there for the same exact thing.

And you don't know if you replaced tires recently about the manner they expensive. Very God Almighty. Yeah, but it was pretty crazy. I don't think elope. Honestly, Tim, I don't think LAPD were ready last night. I don't think I don't think they expected that to happen.

"Joined now by Bob more a freelance reporter covering the border for the Washington Post and Texas monthly thanks for coming back on the takeaway, Bob, thanks for having me. So let's start off with Mark Morgan tell us again who Morgan is. And what experience he's bringing to this role. If he is confirmed Mark Morgan is longtime FBI official, including some tours of duty on the border region. He was the special agent charge in the L Paso FBI office in the Obama administration. He was the first person not from the ranks of the border patrol to be appointed chief of the border patrol was really rocky ten year, the border patrol union opposed his appointment because of the Obama administration basically appointed him to try to disrupt culture at the border patrol. They and so as soon as Trump took office in January twenty seventeen Morgan which was forced to resign. Fine. But in the last few months, he has been a very vocal supporter of many of Trump's border initiatives. And I think obviously, the Trump administration is counting on being able to say, hey, this guy from the Obama administration to sort of minimize the objection Democrats, certainly in his appearances on Fox News and FOX business in the last few months, Morgan has taken on this sort of tough role supporting the wall and supporting Trump's other initiatives, especially with with Lou Dobbs who sort of seems to be that time Trump's defacto VHS secretary sick. A look at the broader implications here ice is also expected to start conducting D N A testing to see if migrants are actually related to the families that they are coming to the southern border with I'm curious about this Bob is this a legal within. International statutes of asylum and refugees. And if so who is in charge of regulating this. Certainly you wanna make sure when when kids are crossing the border that they're they're in safe circumstances. There may be steps short of DNA tests. There are obviously privacy and legality issues. The administration swears for example, that it's going to dispose of the DNA records and not maintain them. But as with everything, you know, the the administration is sort of regulating itself here and has made itself largely immune from congressional oversight last week. The Trump administration also asked for four point five billion dollars in emergency funding for migrants who were detained at the southern border. Where does that funding stand and are Democrats likely to approve any of it? There's two big buckets of money in there. One is for humanitarian relief and the other is four detention Democrats in the house in particular are likely to support the humanitarian efforts to provide. The comfort and safety to the migrants as they're being processed. They're less likely to approve of the other part, which is to essentially build more detention space. So that they can hold people who are coming across. So you'll have Democrats supporting one piece of this. But I don't see the Trump administration just signing off on a humanitarian aid package. They're going to want some additional enforcement in terms of detention beds. So what republi just headed toward another standoff on on border issues between the democratic house and the Trump administration. But I mentioned earlier one theater is who's the sixteen year old what the boy who died last week while he was in the care of US, health and human services. What do we know about his case where we're still waiting to to understand the cause of death in some ways this is similar to the two children who died in border patrol custody back in in December. In that they got very ill and died. It's particularly remindful of the case of Philippeville Gomez who died in Alamogordo New Mexico in that he got sick was taken to a hospital that discharged from the hospital and sent back into custody, and then got worse than than wind up bound up dying that happened with with both of these kids in that that raises some questions that I think they're looking at on what kind of pressure government agencies are putting on a health professionals to to quickly turn turn these kids around. There's certainly a cost for the government when they have kids at a hospital, and you also hear increasing complaints about how we're tying up resources by having government officials taking these kids to hospitals. So I think it bears looking at the C why this child who was taken from mcallen, Texas to Corpus Christi. Which is a couple of hours away. So that it could be treated at children's hospital than turned around and and sent back into custody. I think that that bears looking at let's talk a little bit. Also about the remain in Mexico policy you've written extensively about this. Is it working? It's part of a broader deterrent strategy, which is the entire Trump focus, and that's to make things as uncomfortable or as miserable for people crossing the border as they can. So that the world will eventually get out to Central America. Don't don't come here. So I I'm not sure how we gauge whether policy is working or not certainly the Trump administration in the last couple of weeks has really ramped this policy up as of two weeks ago, there'd been about three hundred four hundred cases of people in El Paso who'd been returned to sit at WADA's across the border to wait, while their asylum cases were heard in the past two weeks that jumped up real quickly. Sixteen hundred. So you're seeing this real pressure being brought in Fatah's, that's really straining the social services available there. We are seeing an increased number of people not showing up to their first hearing after they're supposed to come back from what is into the United States. That may be an indication that people are giving up their cases and going home because they don't want to be stuck in WADA's, which is a very dangerous city, and and they can't work there. And I think that's part of the underlying strategy that the administration is employing what this policy is to have people essentially abandoned their asylum claims because I it's it's too difficult to navigate through. We also know that people who are being sent back to Mexico now at least in Paso are being given court dates for October. So they're looking at a way of at least five months in Mexico before they can even have their first hearing in US immigration co. So this really bears watching for a couple of reasons one you have a potential humanitarian crisis developing in these northern Mexico border cities. And Secondly, we're still waiting on the ninth court of appeals to rule on a request for an injunction that would temporarily blocked this policy that's been pending for several weeks before the ninth court and they haven't acted yet. And what about Mexico in all of this? I mean to say that in what is and other cities. There will be a backlog of migrants waiting for their day in US court. How is Mexico faring here the official position from the Mexican government is that this is a unilateral action by the United States. But of course, there's really no such thing on the border. And so there's a wink nod agreement between the two national governments where president Lopez over door in Mexico is accepting of this policy now, but at the local level in the communities that are taking on these Mike. Parents. They're really easy prey for for criminal organizations. And so one of the things that's come out in immigration courts, as these people come back for their first hearings is that they're being subjected to kidnappings robberies assaults a couple of examples of attempted sexual assaults child snatching. So Mexico's not gonna tolerate this forever. And so it'll be that bears watching as well. And of course, just to round out the conversation here Bob last week. The Trump administration released a memo asking for rule changes to the asylum process. What are these new rule changes and how far have they gotten? They're all sort of proposed rules right now. So they have to go through the rulemaking process, and then Delaval certainly be subject to legal challenges. But again, all of this is part of a broader package of deterrence efforts where? Where the administration just believes that if they make an inconvenient or uncomfortable or more difficult for people to to apply for asylum than the word will eventually get back to Central America, and people will won't comment in the numbers that we're seeing. Now, the point that all that MRs of course, is that underestimates the conditions in the home countries that are essentially forcing people to migrate right now. And it's very difficult to see what the United States could do that would be so uncomfortable or so punitive to to migrants debt that they wouldn't keep coming everything. The administration is done on the deterrence front so far has failed to stem this tide. I think we'll probably see a slowdown in the next couple of months, which is somewhat traditional as the weather warms up. And that may give the president some comfort that things are working. But I think it it would probably be a false sense of comfort. And then as ten. Drop in the fall, we might start to see the return of the migratory trend. So this is a story for the long haul for sure. Bob Moore's the freelance reporter covering the border for the Washington Post.

"Live now to the press conference downtown LA about this domestic terror plot. Chief of Los Angeles Police Department, Michael Moore. Chief Robert Luna, the Long Beach police department. NCIS special agent charge Garrett wall. Captain Darren Harris, Los Angeles County sheriff's department and Lieutenant Thomas Giandomenico feel the criminal complaint. Charging a San Fernando Valley man with plotting terror attack designed to inflict mass casualties at a political rally that took place in Long Beach this past Sunday. The complaint charges. Mark Stephen Dominica Domingo's the twenty six year old resident of recedo with a felony offensive providing and attempting to provide material support to terrorists Mr. Domingo's the United States army. Former United States army soldier who served in Afghanistan. And also a recent convert to Islam. Mr. Dominguez was scheduled to make his initial appearance today at two o'clock in federal court here in Los Angeles. Members of the J TTF specifically special agents with the FBI and officers of the Los Angeles. Police department arrested Mr. Dominguez Friday night after he finalized plans to conduct his terrorist attack. He was taken into custody after you took receipt of what he thought were pressure cooker bombs, and after he traveled to Long Beach to survey the site where he intended to wear his intended victims were to congregate. Mr. Dominguez had requested the construction of improvised explosive devices, which he planned to use the attack he allegedly purchased several hundred three inch long nails to be used as shrapnel specifically because the nails were long enough to penetrate, the human body and puncture internal organs. But fortunately, the I E DS that he planned to use more actual bombs. They were hurt devices provided by the FBI that posed no danger to the public. There were delivered by person. Mr. Domingo's flaw was a confederate. But who was in fact, an undercover law enforcement officer. I want to emphasize that there is no ongoing threat to the public related to this matter. There are no known co-conspirators Mr. Dominguez was under constant surveillance by authorities as he prepared his attack. In short. This is a case in which law enforcement was able to identify a man consumed with eight and bent on mass murder and stop him before he could carry out his attack. Nevertheless, the criminal case outlines a chilling terrorism plot that developed over the past two months and targeted innocent Americans that he expected together this past weekend. At times. Mr. bingo, said that he wanted to kill Jews as they walked to synagogue. At other times. He said he wanted to kill and target police. Officers attack a military facility or or attack crowds at the Santa Monica. Pier. He even wanted to murder a neighbor, which she could which he said could serve as a prelude to a much larger attack. All of these plans were related to Mr. Domingo's, stated belief in violent jihad and that Americans should pay for attacks on Muslims around the world. Following the attack at two mosques in New Zealand last month. She wrote quote, there must be retribution unquote. Earlier Mr. Domingo wrote quote, America needs another Vegas event, unquote, referring to the two thousand seventeen mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed fifty nine people. Mr. Dominguez repeatedly spoke about becoming a martyr at one point. He said he would pledge allegiance to ISIS if they managed to create a presence in the United States. The criminal complaint describes how the FBI learned of Mr. Domingo's online support for violent jihad and his aspirations to conduct a terrorist attack in the Los Angeles area. In response. The JT TTF introduced an undercover source who had a series of meetings with Mr. tobacco and recorded conversations to document is plants the terror plot culminated with plans to bomb innocent people causing dozens of deaths and serious injuries as detailed in the criminal complaint over the past week. Mr. Domingo finalized, his plans and took specific steps to implement the terrorist plot. He drove to multiple stores to purchase the nails that were to be placed inside the eye and made sure they were delivered to the purported bombmaker further offering to buy additional parts for the I if needed. Inspected remote control devices that he hoped could be used to detonate the bombs from a distance. He even considered a backup plan to target another political rally in the case that the primary target Long Beach was cancelled or delayed, even as he lamented that the backup site was in an open location, which would impact which would minimize the impact of the blast. According to court documents, Mr. Dominguez carefully considered implementing the plan specifically saying he wanted to sleep on it for a few days. He then gave the final go-ahead last Thursday and the dummy bombs were delivered Friday evening during a final meeting with two hundred cover operatives Mr. dimicco received instructions on how to detonate devices he believed to be bonds, and then he drove to purported confederates to Long Beach where they walked around the area of the planned rally to find places to plant the bombs for crowds would likely gathered in order to inflict the maximum number of deaths. He was arrested shortly thereafter. This case demonstrates the value of the joint terrorism task force in the cooperative efforts of federal and local law enforcement agents, six diligent work by the FBI was the first step in uncovering and ultimately disrupting a terrorist plot that had the potential to cause significant bloodshed. From there all levels of law enforcement worked together to uncover. And disrupt. The plot that sought to do significant damage to the people of the United States. Well, we always have to remain vigilant. We can always all sleep a little bit better knowing that the FBI in our local law enforcement agencies are working around the clock to keep us safe. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to all of our law enforcement officers for stopping this terrorist in his tracks. Thank you at this time. I'd like to turn it over especially charge Ryan. Yeah. We're listening to a news conference from the US attorney's office. They have arrested a guy that they say was planning a bomb attack on a political rally in the Long Beach over the weekend. This is a good day for law enforcement too often police officers in agents responding to attacks on vulnerable groups, whether innocently attending a concert attending classes or praying in their respective houses of worship it's not inconceivable that I'd be standing here today beginning my remarks by offering condolences to victims of a horrific attack. But not today this word attack can be attributed to the excellent law enforcement efforts by many departments assigned to the joint terrorism task force. I'd like to say up front behalf of all the partners undertake TTF that we have no information suggesting there isn't any known credible threat to south southern California. For the past month or so since establishing that Mr. Domingo post a credible threat to any number of targets. We have conducted surveillance around the clock thoroughly investigated insured intelligence with our partners. Investigators expertly crafted and undercover scenario took ten evidence and to safely take dimicco into custody. Well, we can't get can't discuss all of the aspects of this case at this time because of the ongoing investigation, I can tell you that you can be proud of the joint terrorism task force and the law enforcement professionals at all levels of the government who collectively reach successful conclusion. Some of the partners should contributed to a great deal of resources to me up here on the podium today. They were partners in this case from inception in contributed significantly sources. Resolve this investigation. Some of the young people in cases like this or the line agents. Detectives the bomb technicians surveillance teams technical teams analysts in the mini others who manage the various moving parts since the minute the JT f- established a credible threat. To the to the defendants intentions, we covered them twenty four seven at no time where we in the dark. We thoroughly investigated as the undercover case was built and saw evidence of any potential assistance. He may be receiving physically financially or otherwise. I'd like to speak briefly about the motivation while there's a great need a great deal of detail in the criminal complaint. That will inform you I will point out the we are continued to process the an exploit his digital media and Connecticut interviews of associates close to him. Through the process will paint a clear picture of what motivated, but this time we believe he was conducting attack to weaken the United States and retaliate against Americans for what he perceived to be violence incurred by US actions around the world. It dish in the defendant expected expressed a desire to retaliate for the New Zealand attack defendant claimed he would swear allegiance to ISIS if they formed in the United States in praise the leader of ISIS L Baghdadi recorded conversations with the source talked about attacking churches, Jews police and military officers. It's not always simple to put an ideology into a distinct category, particularly when you're dealing with an alleged criminal behavior. And in many cases, a perverted view of the world and twisted interpretation of religion. Enclosed like to provide an update on the investigation following the arrest Friday evening by the FBI swat team. Investigators conducted a search of the subjects residence and vehicle during the search three of the known firearms belonging to the subject, we're located including a century arms. Wassenaar arrangement. AK forty seven style rifle a Tulsky corruption SKS semi-automatic rifle and as a STA and forty-eight both actual additionally J TTF, investigators found ammunition, high capacity, magazines and numerous large fireworks these items were seized as part of the digital evidence. And the fireworks were turned over to the special agent bomb technicians in the firearms were turned over to FBI firearms destructors for further analysis. We're releasing a photograph of Domingo in the event anyone has information that might assist the JT in this investigation, bingo with an active duty US army infantry. Assigned to Fort Campbell Kentucky, and then spent time in the military. He was deployed deficit Afghanistan for four months in the fall of two thousand twelve he's twenty six years of age and a resident of Reseda agents have reviewed online post in which the Mingo described his support for violent jihad and his aspiration to conduct an attack in the Los Angeles area. Anyone with information relative to the allegations? We're announcing today urged to contact joint terrorism task force. We can be reached twenty four hours a day at three one zero four seven seven six five six five. Thank you. I'd like to introduce chief Michael Moore, Los Angeles Police Department.

Fortunately, unlike TV shows, we work on investigative site won't bring evidence together in our intention.

The Phoenix field division is Mike de Leon talking about this. This guy. This is smile. Hamad subject was not known to the FBI prior to this incident. Today, we have not identified any additional threats associated with this subject this investigation. So that's good. So they they refer to him as an h v e homegrown violent extremist in here. Once again is the special agent in charge of the Phoenix feel office. So the FBI HP several challenges to law enforcement, namely that their attacks can be planned and executed in a matter of hours and days instead of weeks and months. Okay. So who radicalized this guy we talked to a former senior CIA officer Dan Hoffman yesterday. This guy is accused of consorting with ISIS. The challenge with ISIS is really twofold. First there's the issue of. Geographic space and much has been made in recent days about how we have decimated ISIS caliphate in in Iraq and in Syria, which is true. But the this extremist group carries on with some significant throwaway inside or space, and what they're trying to do is make contact and recruit disaffected individuals all over the world, including our own country. So it's a it's an ongoing challenge for us. Yeah. He means not just for the intelligence community, but for local law enforcement, and I liked it. He kind of set me straight on this because I wanted to laugh at this guy is smile Hamad because I see this guy for yesterday my sharper point commentary. I said this guy brought a knife to the gunfight. But before that he brought rocks to a gun fight. You know, how do you take a guy like that? Seriously. Really? Yes. This guy didn't really show a whole lot of forethought and wasn't very sophisticated. Kate. But what he was doing. The takeaway is that here's somebody who was radicalized and it can happen in cyberspace. And that's the challenge again for state and local law enforcement. So you don't know what they're capable of that. That's the scary part about the lone. Wolf HVAC? I'm gonna start using it because it makes it sound. Like, I really know a lot about terrorism these homegrown violent extremists. I've through the years had contact with some folks who do what's called control sec control security, and they try to point out these terrorist accounts on social media to the social media sites like Twitter, for instance, ISIS is all over Twitter. And I happen to know this person who I promised to keep anonymous, and they actually are a civilian law enforcement intelligence analyst and they spend their nights at home on Twitter, finding ISIS accounts and and going.

But you can't be afraid to develop a thesis. It's part of the job part of the gig. And as I see the story break on Friday. I'm like, oh, that's incredible. Because she would have been in captivity for eighty eight days. So let me go to the early part of when she made her escape. Number one. She had the character and the wherewithal if everything proves to be what it is. She had the character and the wherewithal and the strength to survive for eighty eight days, regardless of what J Patterson was doing to this girl. She had the will to survive. That's a very very good thing. She decides she's going to get the hell out of there. She decides she's had enough. I gotta make a break for it. I think now's the time. Again, if the story fleshes out for what it is. So she finds a pair of oversized shoes. She put some clothes on and she gets out of the building. And she starts running. And she finds a woman walking her dog. And she says, I'm Jamie clause this man kidnapped me, and this man shot my mother and father. Okay. So now, this woman knows exactly the name, Jamie. Claus knows exactly what it is knows exactly what it's tied to and knows exactly what the circumstances work. And this woman had the courage to say, okay, come with me. This woman know, whether or not the perpetrator was chasing, the kid the woman know, whether or not J Patterson had an eye on the both of them at this point. Does this woman know whether or not she's in harm's way. She didn't worry about that. Has she took this young girl? She took Jamie, close to another home. And the homeowner opens up the door and says, oh my God. You're Jamie clause. Let's him in the house makes phone calls notifies law enforcement. And and now the second part of the story now develops. Now, I go back to the press conference that they had in northwest Wisconsin on Friday. And I didn't want to be the fly in the ornament. I didn't want to be the wet rag. I didn't want to be the person to put a dent in the joy in the happiness. But you have a gathering, and Barron, Wisconsin. You ever get together? And it's every member of law enforcement who was involved in the case it is the sheriff. It is the FBI special agent charge involved. And it is the the newly appointed attorney general let me work backwards here on that list a little bit. And I would love to get your take on that press conference. Within minutes. I was highly uncomfortable. And I was highly uncomfortable as a detective who's been involved in situations like this where more times than not the outcome is not happy at all. In fact, any investigation that I've been a part of or observed firsthand, it's never been a happy outcome. One hundred percent have been very very sad. And I'm watching this press conference. And I'm like my mother God that doing it again. And I discussed this with a few prominent law enforcement officials, and it's David Clarke explained to me some time ago. It's going to the sound of the boom, and everybody's got to respond and and. Let's put it this way. I had a very lengthy conversation when Vicki mcanuff some weeks ago, she hates NYPD press conference conferences, she hates the and a few other journalists that I know feel the same exact way because we give you nothing. We give you an ladies and gentlemen in law enforcement involved in that one force. But guess what there's a double homicide attached to this investigation. Did you not forget that? Did you not forget that? This guy gets representation. Do not forget his mouthpiece. Who may not have been assigned. Jeter appointed yet gets to listen to all the discovery. That's on television and imprint and on on digital. Did you not forget that?.

They've been part of it for eighty eight days. They didn't come here Monday and telling you come back and Friday, they worked every single day of the week on this case, it was there's tremendous effort by these people behind me. This is a this is a team and you guys department. So thank you. Here in Patterson. There yesterday. There was no one else in the home. Where he was arrested. I'm not sure if back into that. A word was awarded Mr. passion, get arrested. He was just down the road from residents. Yes. Looking for. No, I don't believe. So at this point as you confessed to leave, you know, the answer to that. The suspect. I don't know the answer to that question. Either. I don't know the answer that question did he does he own the house, and I don't know the answer to that. Jamie. Jamie was inside the home repair. I don't know the answer.
