2:22 am
anywhere from 39 different countries to america and border patrol agents expressed concern about the medical crisis we face and the national security crisis and they are doing their best, children coming in and what is interesting, the holding facilities, was intact capacity. they moved into hotels in port bliss to house the children to appear as if they weren't overcrowded so it is a national crisis and no other way to describe it. you cannot see pictures or have people talk about it, you have to be there to see it. it is very simple. stacks of steel paid for to complete the wall, contractors being paid.

2:24 am
can come to, even mexico will not take haiti and turkey, won't take the citizens from there but america will allow anybody to come in and it makes no sense and we are the point of no return. once they come to the country and you can't track them, last month according to border patrol we had over 160,000 that are in the country, don't know where they are or whether they are associated with gangs, how are you going to get them back across the border? you are not. they are in america on our payroll. it is a crisis, no other way to describe it. carley: just from the number of apprehensions at the border in march there was 170 - i want your reaction.

there was the guatemalan president said that president biden gave confusing messages on immigration. it seems everybody might be confused about the message. is there a solution? you said you have been there, the ranchers for border patrol. what is the solution? >> finished the wall, that would start to correct the problem. let border patrol do their job. that is not what they are trained to do and it is in the hands of the cartels. why is doctor fauci not down there? how do we control the different strains of the coronavirus? we are not. there is no social distancing for children or adults and to put them in hotel rooms, how do you supervise hotel rooms, don't have enough manpower to do that.

investigators searched paul florez's home and found items of interest on the property. 25 years later they found something that interested them and you say over the course of find you can't still connect to the person who previously belonged to? >> surely. if there was a piece of jewelry that is present that would be strong evidence that it was connected and shouldn't be present but the remain, the most important for the family, would like to get the remains to give a proper burial but the police investigation, the dna identification, sometimes after 25 years fingerprints are still good. that is important for the criminal investigation. jillian: the family of kristen smart released a statement yesterday, over 20 years we've
