Topics and Guests for August 17

Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

It’s creating a crisis on the border and forcing states into emergency action. What is it? And should you be worried? Mitch Geiger, director of operations for Arizona's Minutemen — the volunteer border patrol group, weighs in.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (search), D-Vt., goes on a tirade against President's Bush pick for Supreme Court justice. And he's not the only one. So do Dems really have an issue with Judge John Roberts or are they just looking for a fight? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Jay Sekelow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, and Bill Press, a radio talk show host and former chair of the California Democratic Party.

And, does a lifetime tracking device for paroled sex offenders violate their rights? We'll get the legal lowdown from Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
