Hi everyone I'm Laura Ingraham in for bill -- -- thanks for watching us tonight.
Immigration reform and the Boston bombing that's a subject of tonight's talking points memo.
If members of the gang of -- push comprehensive immigration reform well you've heard them repeat this tired line.
We must do something because this system is broken.
But just this system is broken is it remove responsibility from politicians who refuse to enforce the current lives.
And also individuals who willfully break them.
But Mexico yesterday the president off teleprompter by the way -- said that we shouldn't get -- down on border issues.
-- -- on both issues this that's like somebody was serious about -- -- And by the way CBS news reported this week that illegal crossings and one border area have nearly tripled since January.
That means the promise of amnesty is a huge magnet.
Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani told me last week on the radio that enforcement provisions in the proposed bill will not work.
Especially since Homeland Security chief Jan -- -- tunnel can -- most of the requirements.
Now suddenly Marco Rubio has gone from saying that the bill contains the toughest border controls ever to.
It might not pass the senate if it's not strengthened.
Meantime immigration and customs enforcement announced today that effective immediately.
It will track student visa holders to make sure they're actually enrolled in school.
Of course they were shamed into doing that is because of the revelations that two of the Boston bombers pals violated student visa requirements.
Oh and by the way.
Remember the national security entry exit registration system that was supposed to give extra scrutiny for visa holders from countries with terror ties.
Well in 2011 team Obama ditched it.
So this is not broken but the politicians here are and that's the memo out now on the top story tonight the latest in the investigation into the Boston bombing.
-- -- John Nance has reportedly told the FBI that he and his brother -- Allen had originally plan their attack for July 4.
But they moved it up the patriots -- because they finished building the bombs ahead of schedule.
Fox News also confirmed that the -- believe the bombs -- assembled inside his brother's Cambridge apartment.
And that of course -- raise new questions about the dead suspects -- widow Kathryn Russell.
The female DNA found earlier this week on bomb parts does not match hers.
But Russell is claiming -- -- not -- anything about the bombs that were built inside that tiny apartment.
Russell reportedly has stopped cooperating with authorities.
Now are culled from the outset that O'Reilly said -- -- to be investigated.
Talking points believes the wife of slain terrorist temelin.
-- may have may have some exposure here's -- Remember authorities are searching for the bomb us for days before their pictures were released and even that.
Did the wife Kathryn Russell alert defense did she do -- thing.
Joining us now from Boston is Boston -- columnist Michael Graham.
And Boston Herald managing editor Joseph joined now good to see you guys are -- let's start with you.
First of all.
Let's go to the July 4.
Revelation that that was really their target date -- moved up the timing of the attack.
Because they have to say where are pretty efficient putting together the bombs potentially a lot more people could have died on -- on July 4 if they carried out that -- Oh definitely -- at the hatch shell that's our open -- Theater right on the Charles River hundreds of thousands of people all packed together.
So it it's just chilling to hear that chilling.
You know Boston Marathon tens of thousands of people packed together on -- -- street at the finish line so.
To this this plan is -- deadly.
And developing every day.
And Michael let's move on to the wife of the dead suspect -- on.
-- -- apparently was working long hours.
As a job as a -- gators something while he's.
He stayed calm taking care of the baby and building the bombs like if they take care that they hate and kill the baby and an -- and the bombs and and one around.
And yet we really know what she said to authorities whether she's really cooperated that much for the authorities very little is known about that.
We'll do -- -- they were also on the dole.
Of any BP benefits he was getting guys -- benefits are so there's tons of money -- in there.
And the idea that she -- I don't care -- she's only coming on the sleep for a few hours -- night.
You help small apartments aren't Cambridge like New York is like the old -- park a lot about our office was so small that many smaller than adultery.
There's no way -- up and around six or seven boxes of pressure cookers and -- -- what -- here and don't forget that we we've got a lot of reporting has been contradicted later on but consistently.
Accounts are that she contacted her husband after his photo hit TV she didn't contact the cops should contact the -- she contacted her husband.
-- -- -- Concern that political correct -- Might in some way and -- this investigation and the president kind of goes out of his -- not to.
Mention -- Jihad or -- an Islamist sensibility.
Anti America deeply anti American.
-- feelings of these immigrants into the United States.
And and is a sense especially the Islamic community that.
And it's been too much pressure on not -- -- wife.
Yea she's not accused of committing any wrongdoing.
So why imply or infer that she somehow knew about this.
But it's just two points it to respond to that well one is -- -- theme in this story is no one made the call no one made the call.
Doesn't matter what religion you are two people die people were -- no one made the call secondly.
We there is we we we found today -- congressman told us that Tamil land when he went over to Russia.
He did get in and get in touch with people on the jihadist side who -- radicalized him there was a boxer from Canada who went over to -- and got killed.
So that is a -- that is now part of this investigation that's what happened.
And Michael the president at when he addresses he talked about the self.
I -- on in his brother's brother was just the poor victim.
And president and say that that's we heard a lot of people report right but -- we have to -- got concerned about self radicalized.
People in the United States that's -- -- also jumping the gun right here remain self radicalized I know that means.
I get -- but what I saw -- doesn't mean yeah I moved myself over to that it stands we're -- -- radicals.
And it handled myself back to love Massachusetts like -- my local mosque in got a shouting matches of my fellow Muslims I.
-- myself to the web where watch videos from the American who was killed in Yemen.
But -- the the it mom saw it coming so -- like -- and that he was taking in all the radical information was coming to him but it's really -- on the real sense of betrayal here.
But I hear from my regular season from my column readers about.
People come to Russia -- believe violence in the come to Cambridge what happens.
Some of them choose to pursue violence against us we have as well for us as we go because wanna help people -- interest rates by using the well.
To what the fund terror we bring Kazakhstan's let's face big study in a trailer park back in the mountains become a UMass Dartmouth what they do.
They know someone was involved in a terror attack on America to kill people.
And they hide evidence on his bat they don't that -- help us out a little bit in the country that welcomed them.
And you know it's a sense of people gaming the system obviously.
Ends up having some spillover effect into the immigration debate because we do have that issue with student visa holders.
And Americans are struggling out there enough -- why exactly are we giving benefits of people lined up betraying his country and didn't really ever.
Buy into our system of values and really -- into.
Our understanding of these basic first principles of the rule of law and so forth and people are really upset about that.
You're right -- that's a key we gave this family that's a sign our family -- hundred.
Thousand plus dollars that's a lot of money.
EDT cards food stamps now grants tuition help and then they turn around and say this country's thanks well.
It just that it happens very examine -- -- reexamine tally all of us I appreciate it gentlemen thanks so much and up next on her.
