laboratory. president obama's surprised decision on immigration rules is dominating political debate. effective immediately, people younger than 30 get a two-year deferral from deportation if they arrived before age 16, lived here for at least five years, be in school, have graduated or be a u.s. veteran and have no felony convictions. president obama calls the new rules fair and just, but republicans argue it is amnesty. the real world effect of these changes make a huge difference in the lives of thousands and cnn's nick valencia has one story. >> the change in u.s. immigration policy announced friday could impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. paula is one of them. >> i'm fighting for my case and

facing deportation in september. i asked her about what she thought of the president's announcement. >> this is a temporary fix. until congress can come up with a more permanent solution, until democrats and republicans can work together to come up with a permanent solution. but as long as congress is on a deadlock, this is what the president is doing to give at least undocumented youth who have been here a long time a chance to get work permits. so this gives us hope, if anything. >> her hearing is set for september. naturally, she's hoping to be able to stay where she grew up, and that is in chicago. always outspoken on immigration issues, the man nicknamed america's toughest sheriffs has been known to lock homes with the white house. but sheriff joe arpaio says he knows why the president made his

come to meineke now and get a free ac system check. meineke. we have the coolest customers. so this topic really got us going, a topic for you to chew on tonight at the dinner table. god, does he exist? more and more young people doubt he does. or she, as well. a new survey asks the question, i never doubt the existence of god, agree or disagree? 68% of people 30 or under say they never doubt god's existence. what gives here? why the growing doubt? joining us now is jessie galiff, an atheist, and hemet mesa, the
4:13 pm
editor of the so what is an atheist? a person who denies the existence of a supreme being or beings. so jessie, i'm going to start with you. why do you -- first of all, i'm going toe ask you about that poll. why don't you believe? >> personally, i don't believe i was brought up in a secular household. i wasn't introduced to religion, i was taught morals without belief in a god or gods. it wasn't until i went off to college that i was exposed to other world views. i wanted to understand what people believed and became involved with the secular club. that's what more and more secular clubs are finding. >> hemet, why don't you believe? >> sure. i was raised in a religious family, but when i started questioning my faith for the first time in high school, i realized that not only did my faith not have the answers, but
4:14 pm
no faith had the answers. and like jessie said, when i went to college, i had the chance to explore that and wanted to become an activist in that area. >> you guys, both of you realize that you're the reason for what just happened, many people don't want to send -- or they're worried about sending their kids off to college because they'll become nonbelievers. i'm just being honest. jessie, how do you explain that survey from pew that shows there are less and less that believe or doubt the existence of god? >> i think that this is something we can all agree on in society that we should examine our beliefs and explore what we actually believe and why. and on campus, in colleges, even high schools and increasingly online, people are exposed to different world views and come in contact with challenging beliefs, challenging ideas. and people are brought up in an age with the internet. they're finding online
4:15 pm
communities, friendly atheists or other people who they can talk about and talk about their doubts. so the milenials in particular are able to doubt in a safe place. >> hemet, how is it that you can't believe in god? what is going on here? to be in this country, you have to believe in something and most people are christians in this country. what's wrong with you? it's the deterioration of this country. and people are being indoctrinated into secularism. >> we're asking people to think and question their faith and doubt their faith and pew survey said that's what they're starting to do more of. what they're finding is you can be good without god and you don't need a religious structure to make that happen. >> okay. it's important -- did you want
4:16 pm
to weigh in on this, jessie? >> yeah. i think something hemet said about the idea that you can be good without god. a real problem for these young americans who are starti ining experience doubt, there are all these stigmas, so erasing the idea that morality requires religion will go a long way. and our students are doing that. they're doing community service projects, helping rebuild houses in katrina, organize soup kitchen activities. because compassion is a human thing, not a religious thing. >> so it's important to note this, i think. you were just going to mention on line, hemet. this decline among young people under the age of 30, is it safe to say technology may be playing a role in this, for instance the
4:17 pm
onset of the internet allowing people to explore more? >> you can fact check what your pastor is saying in church. if you have doubts about your faith, there are communities online and increasingly on campuses and high schools and college where you can explore that without the fear of backlash. that's what we want to promote. we want people questioning and doubting. >> you guys, man, stirg up trouble. jessie, hemet, thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> thanks, don. >> thank you. tonight at 10:00, we're going to dig deeper. if more people continue to question the mere existence of god, decades from now, could that mean people just will stop believing? i'm going to play devil's advocate, so to speak, tonight at 10:00 eastern. the results of an election on the other side of the world could affect your bottom line and whether you get a loan for that new home or car. choosing the right schools for your child's early education

can affect not only after-schooling but job choices. steve perry told us and picking the right charter school. >> i know that a charter school is founded privately. and i want to know what is the best way to research a charter school that best fits my family's needs? >> all charter schools are not private. some are run by the district, in fact. some are run by teacher's unions. but in te vent you're asking how do you pick the best one for you, i don't think that you can do the school justice by researching it online. you have to walk through the school and make sure it feels the way you want it to. go during the school day, not just when they have open houses. you've got to get to know the people in the academic community, watch how they go from one class to the other. the arts program is important to you. if they have sports or not. ask the questions important to you. so put together a list and visit

4:30 pm
under don't ask, don't tell. are you surprised the pentagon would be holding an event like this? >> i would say i'm more pleased than surprised. we expected them to do this professionally, but they are demonstrating in quick order that lbgt service members are part of the team. they still have more work to do on benefits and other things, but they are moving forward faster than some would have predict. >> jonathan, they released a video with secretary panetta. let's listen to it for a bit. >> diversity is one of our greatest strengths. and during pride month, and every month, let's celebrate our rich diversity and renew our enduring commitment to equality for all. >> okay. you know some of the organizers of the pentagon event and it sounds like the secretary will likely be there. how important is that? >> i think the general council, jay johnson will be there. it's very important that top
4:31 pm
level leadership of any department attends different pride events, because there's two very important audiences. one are lbgt members of a department, because they realize hey, we're cared for part of the team. but the other are other members of any department that get to understand their colleague's history and periods of adversity they've gone through. especially in the military, cohesion and leadership are defined by understanding those around you, so you can lead them better and be a closer team with them. >> you wrote an article, jonathan, that paranoia at the military would discover your secret eats you from within. for gay service members, is that all gone now? >> i think i know the answer to that. there are still people that are still closeted and still concerned. >> correct. everybody is different. but each action chips away at the fear that is unnecessary.
4:32 pm
so that's why secretary panetta and everybody else's actions were very important. again, there's much more to do, but this is an important step and one of many that i'm sure to follow. >> it's very interesting going to the white house christmas party this year and having members of the military active coming up to me saying thank you, thank you for what you did, thank you for coming out. and already are working in the military and if the military is working, they didn't understand why gay people could not be in the military. i think it would be amazing if all americans could go to the white house or a military event and listen to gay service men and women of this country. talk about how proud they are to be a member of the military and not have to live in secret anymore necessarily. >> the funny thing is, some folks will find out, wow, this person is just like everybody else and i'm proud of them for the same reasons that they and

4:37 pm
from within. when you had former -- the head of the military, once he left office, he said we have to re-evaluate the situation. then came admiral mike mullen. i think that was instrumental in terms of the president articulating a need for change. to have the chairman of the joint chiefs endorse it, that changed a lot of attitudes and i think it was one of the key reasons why this transformation has taken place so quickly. what i would like to see, when you ask the question of whether or not the defense secretary, secretary panetta should be there at the celebration, the answer is yes. so should the chairman of joints chief and the head of every agency that deals with the agency. >> why is that? >> it's important from the top down that you send the signal. this is the rule of law. this is equal treatment under the law. this is a fundamental human right and we're going to see
4:38 pm
that that right is enforced strictly. i remember when president george w. bush gave his address and said we cannot champion in essence the cause of freedom while carrying the baggage of bigotry. same thing is true as far as sexual preference. you cannot fly the flag of freedom while you carry the baggage of bigotry. it's really important that those at the top send the signal all the way down through the channels. this is a rule that's going to be strictly enforced. any attempts to harass or intimidate will not be tolerated. and you have people like that young captain who served two tours in iraq, one in afghanistan. so you have gays, lesbians, others who are in the military who have -- they're citizens, they're patriots and they're prepared to fight and die for this country. >> putting their lives on the
4:39 pm
line for this country. the way you sound, what you're saying, we've come a long way and it's only been less than a year since don't ask, don't tell was dropped and you're not surprised that an event like this is being held at the pentagon at all. >> i think it's long overdue. i think it's important. when you see that hatred still prevails in parts of the country, there was this report of a young boy, a teenager who killed himself because he was being bullied. at the heard of every bigot is a bully. bullies ought to be exposed and shamed. we have to look at individuals for who they are, what they contribute to us as a society. and as a fundamental human and civil right, not allow this kind of bullying and discrimination and bigotry. that's what we have to speak out against. >> and we are. the land of the free, home of the brave. thank you, secretary cohen.

4:45 pm
but what were the burglars really after? no one really knows for sure. but lamar walldren says he's found new evidence that explains the why behind watergate. >> it all went back to 1960 when nixon wins the vice president and had been running a close election against senator kennedy. to get an edge in the lek sthun, richard nixon pressured the cia to work with the mafia to assassinate the new leader of cuba, castro. >> there has been speculation that then vice president nixon was trying to lay the ground work for that, but you uncovered new information about it. >> right. it was nixon who pressed for that. he was eisenhower's action officer for cuba. nixon thought if castro died before the election, the public
4:46 pm
would stick with the vice president. but the mafia was not able to assassinate fidel. some of the same mafia members also contributed to a $500,000 bribe to richard nixon on behalf of the campaign and to stall abindictment against jimmy hoffa. the fbi and the justice department have records about that cia/mafia plot and records about that $500,000 bribe that involved some of the same mobsters. >> so when you talk about this blot, it sounds incredible, but there's a name attached to this, johnny rizelli. who was me? >> it was the key guy, the key mobster in the plot. he was the chicago mafia's man in hollywood and las vegas? he was like the deal maker, the fixer. he would broker casino deals to
4:47 pm
howard hughes. he turned to his boss because they had the connections to get fidel killed. they also donated to that $ 500,000 mafia bribe. so nixon had those two big secrets. no one has within able to connect those to watergate, but we have brand new documents that connect the mafia and johnny rozelli to watergate. >> his personal files were released this week by the fbi. why do you think he helped those reporters? >> those files show clearly that for almost three years he had been a very upstanding, by the book fbi agent and supervisor and high fbi official. he fully expected when hoover died a few weeks before the
4:48 pm
watergate break-in, he would become fbi director. but nixon knew the fbi had secrets he did not want exposed. so instead of mark felt, who would be the logical predecessor, nixon chose a political guy that he could trust, patrick gray. mark felt was very resentful. >> it's all in a new book called "watergate, the hidden history." iced tea, he's talking hip-h hip-hop, gadgets and guns. ...the mickelson exxonmobil teachers academy... ...and astronaut sally ride's science academy are helping our educators improve student success in math and science. let's shoot for the stars.
