What Happens After Israel's Temporary Cease-fire?

Families are rejoicing after many innocent people taken hostage by Hamas were released as a result of Israel's four-day ceasefire that was declared last Friday. President Biden has said his goal is to keep this pause going to allow for more hostages to be released and humanitarian aid to enter Gaza. However, many are afraid Hamas can't be trusted to keep the peace. On the Rundown, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-NY) explains how she believes Hamas may "manipulate and abuse" the opportunity Israel has given them with this ceasefire and why this likely will not lead to a sooner end to the war. She also discusses the recent car explosion at the U.S.-Canada border and how it echoes the need for better security at our northern border, the fight over government funding in Washington, and how the migrant crisis continues impacting her state.
