(CBrief) – Gianno Caldwell, a Fox News reporter, pressed Republicans and Democrats on the rising crime rates nationwide, but only Republicans wanted to talk about it.

But when he approached Democrats they were not as willing to talk, like New York Rep. Jerry Nadler who said he was “in a rush right now.”

“We just want to talk about the crisis that is impacting our country with crime across the nation,” the reporter said as the representative got on an elevator and attempted to avoid the camera.

“I can’t do it now,” the representative said.

“Congressman Nadler, can we set up a meeting with your office and have a discussion?” the reporter said.

“Uh,” the representative said. “Maybe. I’m going to be pretty busy.”

When he approached Senate Majority Leader and New York Sen. Charles Schumer he got more of the same.

“Senator, any reaction to the crime crisis in America?” he said. “Crime is up, sir. There’s a crisis. You have any reaction? You’re a leader, I would think that you would have a reaction to what’s going on in the country.”

“Thank you,” the senator responded as he got in his car.

But Democrat Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley may have had the most ridiculous response.

“Any reaction to the rise in violent crime across the country which is impacting students?” he said.

“I mean our work on student cancellation is a direct response to what I would consider to be policy violence,” she said.

And when he confronted Democrat Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on it she would not answer him.

“Any reaction to rising crime in America?” the reporter said as the representative stayed silent.

“You supported the defund the police movement that led to a rise in crime,” he said. “Do you have any reaction? Any reaction? No reaction? It impacts your citizens.”

But again, she did not respond.

The issue is a personal one as, in June, Caldwell shared tragic news over the weekend that his younger brother was shot and killed in Chicago.

Caldwell, who joined Fox News in 2017, has been a rising star at the network and has been featured on many of the top programs.

He broke the news on Twitter.

“Yesterday was the worst day of my existence,” Caldwell wrote. “I received a call informing me that my teenage baby brother was murdered on the south side of Chicago. Never could I have imagined my baby brother’s life would be stolen from him. Please keep my family in your prayers.”

Caldwell is looking for answers after his 18-year-old brother was fatally shot.

“What I’m looking for right now is details from the police to discover who it was that murdered my brother,” Caldwell, a Chicago native, told Fox News Digital. “My baby brother never had a chance.”

When asked if he had a message for the perpetrators involved in his brother’s death, the Fox analyst said he wants them to “turn themselves in” and be “brought to justice” but added that he also hopes “they can be rehabilitated.”

“Then one day, whenever they’re out of jail — if it’s not for life — maybe they can turn their lives around and give hope to other young men if there is any hope of rehabilitating them,” Caldwell said. “I would never want to see any street justice or violence against the people who even murdered my little brother. But I do want them brought to justice. And, as a Christian who believes in forgiveness, who believes that there is a second path for people who could do something like this, all I want from my little brother, Christian, is justice. That’s it.”

Christian was the youngest of the nine siblings and had just turned 18 this year, Caldwell explained.

“I was like his dad because he never knew his father. So my three youngest little brothers, I considered — they were my kids. Those are my sons, so I took care of them. I financially supported them and still do my family,” Caldwell said.

“I never, ever, ever thought that my baby brother, just turned 18, would ever be in this situation. We’ve never had anybody murdered in our family, and we’ve been through very, very tragic things,” he said. “God has always shielded each and every one of us, so I can’t understand how this happened. I’m trying to get the details to understand fully what’s going on here.”

“Christian loved sports, spending time with friends, traveling, and “he loved his big brother,” Caldwell said.
