the meantime these texas democrats about to hold a news conference in washington d.c there's the alert after they fled their state on a private plane or two trying to stop a republican effort to strengthen election laws it took a lot of selfies dane along the way here to talk about it texas center ted cruz senator how you doing and good morning to you sir got a lot to get through we'll see how much we can get through in the next couple of minutes here governor abbott said last night on local tv in texas he said i will call a special session after special session
00:30
after special session until election of next year i i don't know if that's the fate here but how does this end do you think with lawmakers leaving the state well i think it's going to end with the texas legislature taking up and passing election integrity legislation what you're seeing the democrats do here is a political stunt and you know i will say it's ironic as they were getting on their private jet to fly to washington d.c they almost surely had to show identification to get on that jet and yet they're doing this in a fit
01:01
because they don't want mail-in ballots to be verified they don't want the signatures to be verified they don't want basic integrity steps to be strengthened in the state of texas this is at the end of the day politics and they need to get back to doing their jobs and one way or the other they will one of the things you know it's interesting bill one of the very first assignments i ever had back 17 years ago when i was newly appointed as the solicitor general of texas one of the first questions i ever got is the speaker of the house of the
01:31
legislature the legislature was redistricting then and the democrats did the same thing they fled that time they fled for ardmore oklahoma the house members and then shortly thereafter for albuquerque new mexico and the speaker of the house asked the attorney general it was then greg abbott my boss he said hey do i have the authority to arrest fleeing legislatures these democrats that have left to break a quorum and abbott and turn asked me i did the research it turns out the answer is yes under the texas constitution there's a provision that explicitly gives
02:03
the speaker the authority to arrest fleeing house members that provision is copied word for word from the u.s constitution and so this stunt is going to fail they're going to come back there's going to be a quorum and i believe the legislature is going to do its job and protect the integrity of elections and sure people can vote but also ensure that we don't have fraud we don't have people casting illegal votes all fascinating so we'll keep an eye on that of course somebody had to pay for the private jets uh interesting to see who that would be and also
02:33
they did fundraising appeals last night which might give you a clue as to the other reason that this is happening in the meantime can i take you to cuba and tell tell us a little bit about your thoughts there i do want to get your reaction to senator bernie sanders he was responding to our own peter ducey on his support past support of cuban policies watch last year during the campaign you said that it's unfair to simply say everything is bad in cuba do you still share that sentiment now that the people there seem to be
03:03
well i support throughout latin america and in cuba and every place else the right of people to protest for a decent economy and for political freedom senator well it's interesting that bernie says he supports the right of people to protest you know who doesn't support that right the cuban communist dictatorship that bernie also supports right now the cuban thugs are out there arresting protesters they're throwing them in jail they're clubbing them they're beating them and this is not new for decades the communist dictatorship
03:35
in cuba has committed murder has committed torture has committed incredible atrocities and and then as you know for me this is not just a theoretical matter my father was imprisoned and tortured by batista castro's predecessor my aunt my theosonia was imprisoned and tortured by castro so my family like so many millions of other cuban families have seen the brutal oppression of communism firsthand and i gotta say watching these images watching cuban people in the streets risking their lives when you stand up in
04:06
protest it's it's one thing to to wave a flag here in the u.s where you're not risking your life there they are literally risking imprisonment and death and and the american people stand with the people of cuba and i gotta say the biden administration has been terrible on this you know they put out a statement saying this shows their right to peaceful assembly no it shows a communist dictatorship trying to silence their speech and and the biden administration claims these protests are about kovid they just
04:37
want some more coveted shots no these protests they are yelling libertad they are yelling freedom in the streets they're yelling down with the dictatorship and they're waving american flags what what a beautiful symbol of freedom the american flag is across the globe and and yet joe biden and kamala harris can't seem to figure out why that freedom is important and why those people are standing up and risking their lives well you're exactly right about the bravery in more than 40 cities throughout the country i don't think we've seen it more than 60 years at this
05:08
level uh final topic gotta run here you won title 42 which deals with immigration on the southern border that if you have coveted you cannot come into the country is that going to lapse or not sir well we're hearing concerning reports that the biden administration intends to end enforcement under title 42. title 42 is the legal authority that allows you with illegal immigrants when they come to expel them and expel them quickly because of the pandemic and the biden administration is making noise they want to end that i've introduced
05:39
legislation this week to maintain the production protections of title 42. listen there's still a global pandemic many americans have gotten vaccinated i've gotten vaccinated but a lot of the people coming here illegally they haven't and as we see new variants of this disease we've seen the disaster of joe biden's open border policy it is putting a huge cost on my home state of texas and now these guys want to make it worse and release essentially everybody who comes title 42
06:08
has been having effect with regards to single young men who may be covet positive and and if the biden administration releases them as well it would be putting politics ahead of public safety and public health i think that'd be a serious mistake see where it goes senator thank you please come back ted cruz thanks hi everyone i'm brian kilmeade i want you to do me a favor i want you to click to subscribe to the fox news youtube page this is the only way that i know for sure that you're not going to miss any great commentary any great news bites any great interviews coming your way on fox you
