"FOX & Friends"

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff (search) concedes the U.S. government's southern border control efforts must be strengthened. What’s the government’s plan? We’ll ask National Border Patrol Chief David V. Aguilar.

And, we’ll get an update on the emergency on our borders from someone who is on the front lines of the border crisis: James Johnson, whose family's 87 year-old cattle ranch shares a fourteen-mile border with Mexico.

Then, Michael Graham (search) was fired from his job as a radio talk show host in Washington after he linked Islam with terrorism on-air.
