With the end of the fiscal year coming this Saturday lawmakers must work on a funding extension or risk a government shutdown. GOP leadership in the House is hoping to pass bills that would put them in a better negotiating position with a Democrat-controlled Senate without angering the right flank of the party. Key issues such as funding for the War in Ukraine as well as the border crisis headlining the negotiations. Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) is the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee. Sen. Wicker joins Mike Emanuel on the FOX News Rundown to discuss the negotiations, the border, the War in Ukraine and more.
Illinois has become the first state to eliminate cash bail with the “Pretrial Fairness Act,” after lawmakers in the state criticized the current system for disproportionately affecting minorities and those not wealthy enough to afford bail. With cashless bail, prosecutors now have to request detentions, and judges must use their discretion to jail people awaiting trial to keep violent criminals off the street. However, critics of the law say posting bail is an incentive for people to show up for their court dates. Former DC Police Detective, defense attorney, and FOX News Contributor Ted Williams joins the Rundown to explain why he breaks down the debate over cashless bail and fears that this amended justice system could favor criminals over law-abiding citizens.
