INJURED AND A SUSPECT AS WELL AS LAW ENFORCEMENT TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. >> Bill: TEXAS DEMOCRATS ABOUT TO HOLD A NEWS CONFERENCE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. THE ALERT AFTER THEY FLED THEIR STATE ON A PRIVATE PLANE OR TWO TRYING TO STOP A REPUBLICAN EFFORT TO STRENGTHEN ELECTION LAWS. TOOK A LOT OF SELFIES ALONG THE WAY. HERE TO TALK ABOUT IT TEXAS SENATOR TED CRUZ. HOW ARE YOU DOING AND GOOD MORNING TO YOU. A LOT TO GET THROUGH. SEE HOW MUCH WE CAN GET THROUGH IN THE NEXT COUPLE MINUTES HERE. GOVERNOR ABBOTT SAID LAST NIGHT ON LOCAL T.V. IN TEXAS I WILL CALL A SPECIAL SESSION AFTER SPECIAL SESSION AFTER SPECIAL SESSION UNTIL ELECTION OF NEXT YEAR. I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S THE FATE HERE. HOW DOES THIS END DO YOU THINK WITH LAWMAKERS LEAVING THE STATE? >> WELL, I THINK IT WILL END WITH THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE TAKING UP AND PASSING ELECTION INTEGRITY LEGISLATION. WHAT YOU ARE SEEING THE DEMOCRATS DO HERE IS A POLITICAL STUNT. I WILL SAY IT’S IRONIC AS THEY WERE GETTING ON THE PRIVATE JET TO FLY TO WASHINGTON, D.C. THEY ALMOST SURELY HAD TO SHOW IDENTIFICATION TO GET ON THAT
01:02
JET AND YET THEY ARE DOING THIS IN A FIT BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT MAIL-IN BALLOTS TO BE VERIFIED. DON’T WANT SIGNATURES TO BE VERIFIED. THEY DON’T WANT BASIC INTEGRITY STEPS TO BE STRENGTHENED IN THE STATE OF TEXAS. IT IS POLITICS AND THEY NEED TO GET BACK TO DOING THEIR JOBS. ONE WAY OR THE OTHER THEY WILL. ONE OF THE THINGS -- IT’S INTERESTING. ONE OF THE 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 GOT IS THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF THE LEGISLATURE, THE LEGISLATURE WAS REDISTRICTING THEN AND THE DEMOCRATS DID THE SAME THING. THEY FLED. THAT TIME THEY FLED FOR OKLAHOMA, THE HOUSE MEMBERS, SHORTLY THERE AFTER WERE ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO. THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE ASKED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, MY BOSS, DO I HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ARREST FLEEING LEGISLATORS, THE DEMOCRATS WHO LEFT TO BREAK A QUORUM. I DID THE RESEARCH AND THE ANSWER IS YES. UNDER THE TEXAS CONSTITUTION
02:04
THERE IS A PROVE ITION THAT EXPLICITLY GIVES 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 ARE GOING TO COME BACK AND A QUORUM AND I BELIEVE THE LEGISLATURE WILL DO ITS JOB AND PROTECT THE INTEGRITY OF THE ELECTIONS. INSURE PEOPLE CAN VOTE BUT INSURE WE DON’T HAVE FRAUD AND PEOPLE CASTING ILLEGAL VOTES. >> Dana: SOMEBODY HAD TO PAY FOR THE PRIVATE JETS. INTERESTING TO SEE WHO THAT WOULD BE. THEY DID FUNDRAISING APPEALS AS TO THE CLUE TO THE OTHER REASON THIS IS HAPPENING. CAN I TAKE YOU TO CUBA? TELL US ABOUT YOUR THOUGHTS THERE AND I WANT TO GET YOUR REACTION TO SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS. HE WAS RESPONDING TO OUR OWN PETER DOOCY ON HIS PAST SUPPORT OF CUBAN POLICIES WATCH. >> LAST YEAR DURING THE CAMPAIGN YOU SAID IT IS UNFAIR TO SIMPLY SAY EVERYTHING IS SAD IN CUBA. DO YOU STILL SHARE THAT
03:05
SENTIMENT NOW THAT THE PEOPLE SEEM TO BE -- >> I SUPPORT THROUGH LATIN AMERICA AND EVERYWHERE THE RIGHT TO PEOPLE TO WANT A DECENT ECONOMY AND POLITICAL FREEDOM. >> Dana: SENATOR. >> IT’S INTERESTING BERNIE SAYS HE SUPPORTS THE RIGHT OF PEOPLE TO PROTEST. YOU KNOW WHO DOESN’T SUPPORT THAT RIGHT? THE CUBAN COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP THAT BERNIE SUPPORTS. RIGHT NOW THE CUBAN THUGS ARE ARRESTING PROTESTORS AND THROWING THEM IN JAIL AND CLUBBING THEM AND BEATING THEM. THIS IS NOT NEW. FOR DECADES THE COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP IN CUBA HAS COMMITTED MURDER, TORTURE AND INCREDIBLE ATROCITIES. AS YOU KNOW FOR ME IT ISN’T JUST A THEORETICAL MATTER. MY FATHER WAS IMPRISONED. MY AUNT WAS IMPRISONED AND TORTURED BY CASTRO. MY FAMILY LIKE SO MANY MILLIONS OF OTHER CUBAN FAMILIES HAVE SEEN THE BRUTAL OPPRESSION OF COMMUNISM FIRSTHAND. I HAVE TO SAY WATCHING THESE
04:07
IMAGES AND WATCHING CUBAN PEOPLE IN THE STREETS RISKING THEIR LIVES. WHEN YOU STAND UP AND PROTEST IT IS ONE THING TO WAVE A FLAG HERE IN THE U.S. WHERE YOU AREN’T RISKING YOUR LIFE. THERE THEY ARE RISKING IMPRISONMENT AND DEATH AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE STAND WITH THE PEOPLE OF CUBA AND I HAVE TO SAY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN TERRIBLE ON THIS. THEY PUT OUT A STATEMENT SAYING THIS SHOWS THEIR RIGHT TO PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY. NO, IT SHOWS A COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP TRYING TO SILENCE THEIR SPEECH. THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION CLAIMS THE PROTESTS ARE ABOUT COVID. THEY WANT MORE COVID SHOTS. NO, THESE PROTESTS, THEY ARE YELLING FREEDOM IN THE STREETS. THEY ARE YELLING DOWN WITH THE DICTATORSHIP AND WAVING AMERICAN FLAGS. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SYMBOL OF FREEDOM THE AMERICAN FLAG IS ACROSS THE GLOBE. 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. >> Bill: YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT
05:08
THE BRAVERY. MORE THAN 40 CITIES THROUGHOUT THAT COUNTRY. WE HAVEN’T SEEN IT MORE THAN 60 YEARS AT THIS LEVEL. GOT TO RUN HERE. YOU WANT TITLE 42 WHICH DEALS WITH IMMIGRATION ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER, IF YOU HAVE COVID YOU CAN’T COME INTO THE COUNTRY. IS THAT GOING TO LAPSE OR NOT, SIR? >> WE’RE HEARING CONCERNING REPORTS THAT THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION INTENDS TO END ENFORCEMENT UNDER TITLE 42. THAT’S THE LEGAL AUTHORITY THAT ALLOWS YOU WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHEN THEY COME TO EXPEL THEM QUICKLY BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC AND THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION IS MAKING NOISE THEY WANT TO END THAT. I HAVE INTRODUCED LEGISLATION THIS WEEK TO MAINTAIN THE PROTECTIONS OF TITLE 42. THERE IS STILL A GLOBAL PANDEMIC. MANY AMERICANS HAVE GOTTEN VACCINATED, I’VE GOTTEN VACCINATED. A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING HERE ILLEGALLY HAVEN’T. AS WE SEE NEW VARIANTS OF THE DISEASE WE HAVE SEEN THE DISASTER OF JOE BIDEN’S OPEN BORDER POLICY PUTTING A HUGE COST ON MY HOME STATE OF TEXAS, AND NOW THESE GUYS WANT TO MAKE
06:09
IT WORSE AND RELEASE ESSENTIALLY EVERYBODY WHO COMES, TITLE 42 HAS BEEN HAVING EFFECT WITH REGARDS TO SINGLE YOUNG MEN WHO MAY BE COVID POSITIVE AND IF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION RELEASES THEM AS WELL, IT WOULD BE PUTTING POLITICS AHEAD OF PUBLIC SAFETY AND PUBLIC HEALTH. I THINK IT WOULD BE A SERIOUS MISTAKE.
