tv CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello CNN September 4, 2015 6:00am-8:01am PDT
you is truly impressive. is it not, carol? >> i was thinki ining the bad j are flying this morning. >> he's full of them. >> he's full of something. have a good weekend, guys. "newsroom" starts now. happening now on the "newsroom" the boy on the beach laid to rest this morning as we hear his family's story. . >> i did all in my power to safe them. i couldn't. >> the desperation out weighing the danger for thousands more migrants. where are they going to go? also, kisses, hugs and soon wedding bells in kentucky. a clerk denying gay marriage licenses, in jail this morning. but her fight isn't over yet. plus, jeb bush's fighting
words. >> when he attacks me personally or disparages my family, damn right i'm going to fight back. >> why he says donald trump cannot insult his way to the white house. let's talk. live in the cnn "newsroom." ♪ . morning. i'm carol kos tocostello. we're following breaking news on the economy. 173,000 jobs last month, fewer than many expected. still, the unemployment rate ticking down two notches to 5%. that is the lowest unemployment rate since 2008. >> what they mean is the labor market improved again in the most recent month in august. here's the perspective. not as robust as you saw earlier in the summer. that was a surprise for some people. but the unemployment rate, this is a headline basically to almost full employment again,
back to precrisis levels. the lowest unemployment rate since april 2008. when you dig into these numbers the sector growth was impressive and widespread. and you had growth and jobs at the higher end of the income spectrum. these are kind of numbers good for recent college graduates quite frankly and people who have a college degree. those are the jobs we're seeing grow. everyone's trying to figure out what this means for the federal reserve when it meets in two weeks. there's a lot of discussion about what this kind of job market performance is going to mean for the federal reserve. the u.s. economy is getting back on track and these numbers confirm that but not quite as strong as some had hoped. >> at least it's on the positive side. he has become the face of a humanitarian crisis, his small
lifeless body a symbol of desperation to flee war and poverty. these images capturing the promise and hope that has unleash aed a flood of refugees. the father of a two-year-old syrian boy watched him being buried alongside his mother and brother. everybody i was dreaming of is gone, he said. i want to bury my children and sit beside them until i die. his sister who lives in canada is haunted by his description and watching his son die. >> so he close his eyes and he let him go. he look around for his wife. she was floating in the water. it's like a balloon. he said you should see how she
looked. he said i did all in my power to save them. i couldn't. nobody else could save them. everyone in the boat tried to save their life. i told him, i'm so sorry. i shouldn't send you the money to go. if i didn't send you the money, you don't. and he said, don't blame yourself. i know you did to help us a lot. >> the refugees are find manage european countries overwhelmed and unwelcoming frankly. this is the seen near budapest. right next to them tensions are building in a standoff between police and migrants. refugees refusing to get off a
train and for morehours have demanded safe passage to germa germany. >> reporter: the standoff here just outside of butdapest right now continues. the migrants getting more and more frustrated. we've seen them stage demonstrations throughout the day calling for help from germany. saying they want to leave hungary as soon as possible. they don't want to stay here. they're trying to hold them back and trying to hold us back from speaking to them. nevertheless i was able to speak to one asylum speaker from syria who described to me how bad the situation is on that train. >> right now the situation is so bad inside. lot of babies. we have women. we have pregnant women inside. so many women.
no food, no water, nothing inside. we buy the ticket by our money. they don't wantto us to pass through here. why did they allow us to the buy tickets? why? >> reporter: you can see there the major frustration by the people who have been holed up there on that train for more than 24 hours, pregnant women and children as well. that situation is not going to resolve any time soon. the migrants are saying they're not going to leave that train until that border ard train goe germany. the only option is to get off the train, get on buses and go to a refugee shelter. they don't want to do that in
any case. those images so heartbreaking, even hard to stomach. it's important to show them because they illustrate the severity of this crisis. these photos also caught our attention. they show a mother gripping her baby lying across the train tracks. hungarian police try to pull her off. as the crisis worsens, so does the frustration with the global response. joining us now is cnn global affairs analyst. i want to read you something that the hungarian prime minister said yesterday. he seems quite heavy-handed frankly in these treatment of these migrants. he's forcing them into these fenced camps. this is what he said. he says we don't want to criticize france, belgium, any other country. we think all country versus a right to decide whether they want to have a large number of muslims in their countries. if they want to live together
with them, they can. we don't want to and i think we have a right to decide that we do not want a large number of muslim people in our country. your reaction to that? >> well, victor orban, has a long long hihistory of this rac rhetoric. he's not alone. there are leaders across the european continent. fortunately many of them are fringe elements. but they are often heard at times like this saying things that are frankly islamophobic and racist. hungary has economic problems of some magnitude and it is overwhelmed with the arrival of so many refugees. but this kind of language doesn't help. it would be much more helpful if orban would reach out for aide
and help from countries in the world and show some sympathy. after all, it was no long ago when people of the world were showing sympathy for hungarians. >> paint a picture for us. remind us why these people are fleeing syria and iraq. >> it's been -- we're in year five of a brutal civil war in which the regime of bashar assad helped by countries like russia and iran has essentially been slaughtering tens of thousands of its own people. 250,000, a quarter of a million people are already dead. on top of that, you have isis, which operates from its headquarters in syria. you have millions of people caught between a rock and a hard place, to use the old cliche. millions of them are refugees.
nearly four million are refugees outside the country. a million in turkey, a million in lebanon, a million nearly in jord jordan. these countries overwhelmed themselves. a million refugees is equal to a quarter of the population. the political instability that brings, these countries are over burdened and cannot any more. and the refugees arriving realize that. you just have to go to one of those camps and realize this can only be a halfway house. i cannot bring my family and leave them here. since they're not wanted by other countries that have money and should be taking large numbers of these refugees won't have them. where can they turn? they turn west.
>> right, they turn west to germany and other countries within europe. and also maybe the united states. and i just want to run this by you. some republican candidates running for president are blaming president obama thr this cris -- for this crisis. >> this is a result of the president's weakness. the president stands up months ago and says if assad uses chemical weapons on his people in syria, we will take him out. he drew a red line as president of the united states. then assad used chemical weapons on his people and he said never mind. the united states is the leading country in the world for freedom and for liberty. and we can't permit this. i don't relish the united states being the world's policeman. that's not what i want. but we need to be the world's leader. >> do you agree? >> it's empty rhetoric. he's not suggesting what he would do. look, a crisis as big as syria and what's happening in iraq, a monster as big as isis has many, many fathers.
there's a lot of blame to go around here. you can blame george w. bush. you can blame the obama administration. you should certainly blame bashar al assad of syria who's killing his own people. there's a lot of blame to go around. but the blame game is not going to help that little kid who washed up on the shores of turkey dead. nor is sit going to help the millions of people out there. this kind of rhetoric doesn't really advance the discussion, doesn't really help. right now these are people in dire distress. the world should be talking about how can we help them. >> thanks so much. still to come in the "newsroom," with this kentucky clerk behind bars the doors open for same sex couples to pick up their marriage licenses. alexandra field just talked to the very first couple to be able to do that. >> reporter: it's a historic day
toenail fungus? (crowd cheers) don't hide it... tackle it with fda-approved jublia! jublia is a prescription medicine proven to treat toenail fungus. use jublia as instructed by your doctor. once applied, jublia gets to the site of infection by going under... and around the nail. most common side effects include ingrown toenail, application-site redness, itching, swelling,
. >> police are still hunting for the gunman. police say the shooting was the result of a fight near the baseball diamond near the southern end of the campus. the funeral for joseph gliniewicz is monday. a home surveillance video may show the three men that kbli gliniewicz was pursuing. police have not yesterdt viewed video because they don't have the proper equipment.
>> reporter: good morning, carol. right now the only description that investigators have of these three suspects is very vague, two white males and a black male. image what crisp surveillance video could do. >> the video was turned over to us by a third party individual who was a police officer. and based on his description about what he was told was on that video, it matched the description of this two male white subjects and a male black subject walking past this camera. again, we don't believe in coincidences. however, we still don't know and can't verify exactly whether this video is relevant to the case. but at this point it's probably one of the most significant ones we've recovered. >> now, another significant development, the recovery of the officer's weapon.
now, authorities telling us that lieutenant gliniewicz was 50 yards from his cruiser. and that his gun was also recovered. now, they're being tight-lipped about all the other details. but a cnn source tells us that that gun was fired. as for lieutenant gliniewicz's fuel r funeral it's monday. a big development in rowan county kentucky. just last hour the embattled clerk's office issued its first marriage license to the first same sex couple. >> reporter: this is what the
c couple from this county have been fighting for. the county clerk here in rowan county has refused to hand out those licenses. she is in jail, but her deputy clerks are handing out licenses. the first same sex cup toouple obtain a marriage license in this county showed up as soon as the doors were open. listen to what they had to say. >> we've had supporters here since the beginning from this county, from this community. and there are people who have been here every day since the beginning of this, every day out here protesting. you don't really realize the emotional charge to it and the hate until you see it up front, you know, up close. but we're trying not to -- we just want to really go get our license right now. >> reporter: william smith and
james yates made their way through the throng of protesters to get their marriage license. they had been here five times before they succeeded today. the judge called five of kim davis's deputy clerks to the stand. five of them agreed they would issue the marriage licenses. the only deputy clerk who held out was kim davis's son, who is refusing to issue licenses to same sex couples. kim davis's attorney has said she cannot agree to th. today she remains in jail. >> how long might she have to stay in jail then? >> reporter: well, indefinitely, it seems, according to her attorneys. they are saying that she is here to fight the fight. the judge has said she can purge
herself of the order to remain in jail if she agrees to authorize if marriage licenses here or if she agrees not to interfere with the work the deputy clerks are doing. she ree's prepared to stay in j. it is her opinion that the state should take her name off of the marriage licenses. she would consider that a victory according to her attorneys and to her husband. that's certainly not an imminent possibility. the governor made a statement yesterday saying that according to the legislature here in kentucky they have given the responsibility of marriage licenses to to county clerk. he can't relieve the county clerk of those duties with an executive order. i should point out that while kim davis has been ordered by a
court to issue these marriage licenses, while she was in contempt of court and sitting behind bars right now, she is appealing her case to a higher court. . still to come in the "newsroom" donald trump is never at a loss for words. that is until he was asked about foreign policy in a radio interview. was it a gotcha moment?
replacing pipelines throughout the city of san jose, to provide safe and reliable services. raising a family here in the city of san jose has been a wonderful experience. my oldest son now works for pg&e. when i do get a chance, an opportunity to work with him, it's always a pleasure. i love my job and i care about the work i do. i know how hard our crews work for our customers. i want them to know that they do have a safe and reliable system. together, we're building a better california. i'm going to push back when he says things that are ugly, that i think will damage our brand, damage our ability to be successful. and i'm sure as hell when he attacks me personally or disparages my family, damn right i'm going to fight back. >> fighting words from jeb bush, threatening to hit back at donald trump if the front-runner attacks his wife and family. trump isn't just taking heat
from bush, he's also feeling the fire from conservative radio show host hugh hewitt. >> are you familiar with general solamani? >> yes. go ahead, tell me. >> he runs the quds forces. >> yes, okay. right. i think the kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by us. >> not the kurds. the quds forces. the iranian revolutionary guards, the bad guys. >> i thought you said kurds. >> no. quds. >> i'm sorry. i thought you said kurds. >> all right. so was that a gotcha question from hugh hewitt? let's talk about that. i'm joined by sabrina shaffer and amanda carpenter. amanda, was trump right? was that a gotcha question from
hugh hewitt? >> listen, it absolutely was not a gotcha question. people who are running to be commander in chief are expected to know about international relations and particularly our fight against terrorism. the fact he's turning this into a campaign once again against the media shows that donald trump doesn't like to be questioned on the issues. really there's no excuse for him not to be prepared for these questions. hugh hewitt has forecasted in multiple interviews on his radio show that he wants candidates to be able to talk intelligently about these issues. it just shows that donald trump doesn't have a serious approach to preparing for these important questions. >> hugh hewitt dug in and he had carly fiorina on his show. next he set up her interview by saying she has no idea what i'm going to ask her, but i'm going to ask the very same questions that i asked of donald trump. i want to play how carly fiorina answered his questions.
>> we know that the general, the quds force has been a powerful tool of the iranian regime to sew conflict. we also know that the quds force is responsible for the deaths and wounding of american soldiers. we also know that the quds force has been in syria and a whole bunch of other countries in the middle east. >> so there you have it, sabrina. carly fiorina had no problem answering questions about the quds. >> not at all. one of the things i like most about carly fiorina is that she doesn't pretend she's been working in foreign policy for the last few decade. but she's willing to do the homework. all of this is reminiscent about sarah palin where people were very enthusiastic about her. but then people found out she wasn't going to do the heavy
lifting. carly fiorina has demonstrated she is. and our range of issues from women in the workplace to foreign politicicy she's willin tackle them all. >> if you could jump in here, what i think is really interesting about carly fiorina, as ceo of hewlett-packard she actually had a close working relationship with the cia. they needed a whole lot of servers during 9/11. she's actually been immersed in this in a way that i don't think people know about. >> it's interesting because the next debate is coming up on september 16th. carly fiorina is likely to be a part of that debailoute on the stage as donald trump.
>> i definitely think this is an opportunity for carly fiorina. something important to keep in mind is when it comes to foreign policy, republicans no longer sort of own that issue the way they have in years past. in fact, republicans and democrats are very much head to head on foreign policy. so the ability to get up there on the 16th and define one's foreign policy and demonstrate to the public that you have a real grasp of these issues and a vision for america's foreign policy is very effective and important and that's something i think a lot of political commentators will be watching as well as american voters. >> and i suspect, amanda, that donald trump will have more of a policy than i'm going to hire a general macarthur type. >> i think there's going to be a very interesting dynamic. if you remember in the first debate she essentially rose to
the top of the polls by attacking him. this will be the first time they are on together. she's gone after him for the way he talks about women. we could have some interesting exchanges coming up. >> will joe run? vice president biden says he will not hesitate to make a run for the democratic nomination. but there is one holdup. biden says it's whether or not his family is up to the grueling task so soon after the death of his son beau. >> the factor is, can i do it, can my family undertake what is an arduous commitment that we'd be proud to undertake under ordinary circumstances? but the honest to god answer is i just don't know. >> biden has run for president
twice before, both times dropping out early. all eyes on wall street this morning. the opening bell just rang moments ago. right now it's not looking so good. the dow is down 200 points on the heel of that new jobs report. 173,000 jobs added in august. and unemployment rate down to 5.1%. that's the lowest rate in years. i think people expect the fed rate to go up soon. >> reporter: wall street not very happy about this report. not because they think it's bad. it's because they think it's too good. look beyond the fact that that 17 5,000 number actually missed expectation. the unemployment number at 5.1%,
almost down to prerecession numbers. you see that wage pressure is building. that means that wages are beginning to go up. and the way wall street sees it is that for the fed wages, they've been flat in this country for a long time. that's been a thorn in the side of the fed. one of the things holding it back from raising rates. this report shows that wages are under pressure. the fed may be more inclined to go ahead and pull the trigger and raise rates in september. and there's a lot of skepticism about whether or not that is a warranted move at this point. no one really knows what's going to happen in the end right now. that meeting coming actually two weeks from now. we will know for sure what the fed is going to do. right now you're seeing the gamble, wall street placing their bets on the fact that the
fed will go ahead and raise rates. but wall street could be wrong. coming up in the "newsroom," it's hard to imagine what this little migrant boy went through. but my next guest says it could have been him years ago. his story, next. did you know that meeting your daily protein needs actually helps to support your muscle health? boost® high protein nutritional drink can help you get the protein you need. each serving has 15 grams of protein to help maintain muscle, plus 26 vitamins and minerals including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones. boost® high protein is the #1 selling high protein complete nutritional drink and it has a great taste-guaranteed! help get the nutrition you need everyday with boost® high protein. join the club at brandpower.com.

turkey. this heartbreaking and disturbing photo shining a spotlight on the severity of the crisis. the family's story just one of minute. for dr. chung, all of this hits close to home. he fled communist vietnam with his family when he was just three and a half years old. after several weeks in a journey that included pirates and dehydration and little foods. today he runs a private medical practice in colorado with his wife. in addition to being a fullbright scholar, he's also a father. the members of his family hold 21 university degrees. he joins me now from colorado springs. >> thank you for having me, carol. >> you have such an incredible story. i do want to get your thoughts on the picture of that little
boy washing ashore in turkey. what went through your mind? >> the body of the lifeless toddler face down washed up on the beaches really chilling to me, because that could have been me. his family fled out of the desperation and they took to the sea. in 1979 my family fled communist vietnam. i was only three years old. we were packed in a little fishing boat, our family of ten with 83 other refugees. we had no food, no water and we were drifting aimlessly in the south china sea. we were dehydrated and he were dying. my family had a different outcome because a ship rescued us and we were eventually relocated to the united states. >> was it just luck that you guys ended up in the united states? >> it was really the
compassionate response of this amazing country. i believe that americans are a generous and compassionate people. and i believe that we're also action oriented. because when we see a human crisis, we want to do something about it. and if you look at my story, you'll see it's really the individual acts of courage and generosity that's made all the difference. sometimes when we look at these problems and we look at it only as a political or legal problem, it may seem so large and overwhelming that we don't know what to do. but in my story you'll see that individuals can make a big difference. today in refugee camps there are organizations like world vision that are rescuing families just like mine, just like those that you see on tv. and beyond that, it was a small church in fort smith, arkansas that opened up their hearts and sponsored my family. and all along the way from my journey from a refugee to an
american today, there were strangers who gave my family money, food and water. and their acts prevented my story from ending anonymously in the south china sea at the age of three. >> you take a look at what's happening in hungary where they're rounding up migrants and putting them in fenced areas and telling them to stay there and slowly starve because they're not getting much food or water, or go back to those war torn can you be the -- countries they're trying to desperately to escape. your thoughts? >> my family when we made it on the beaches of malaysia in 1979 we were essentially imprisoned on that beach and forced to march on the scalding sand. i was three years old. my mother was pregnant and she
suffered a miscarriage and almost died. eventually we were towed out to see by the malaysia authorities and left to die. when you think about this as a political problem, in fact it's a human tragedy. when we're able the look at refugees and see the face of a child, i think that's where we need to start to solve this issue. >> dr. chung, thank you so much for sharing your story with us this morning. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. still to come in the "newsroom," a dangerous interruption to a match at the u.s. open. who sent this drone crashing into the stands?
i'm caridee. i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most of my life. but that hasn't stopped me from modeling. my doctor told me about stelara® it helps keep my skin clearer. with only 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses... ...stelara® helps me be in season. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and increase your risk of infections. some serious infections require hospitalization. before starting stelara® your doctor should test for tuberculosis. stelara® may increase your risk of cancer. always tell your doctor if you have any sign of infection, have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths. do not take stelara® if you are allergic to stelara® or any of its ingredients. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems. these may be signs of a rare, potentially fatal brain condition. serious allergic reactions can occur. tell your doctor if you or anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. in a medical study, most stelara® patients saw at least 75% clearer skin
reckless endangerment and reckless operation of a drone. it was seen floating into the stadium from the east before slamming down into an occupied area of the stands. the match had to be halted as the authorities investigated. jean casarez is here with more. we're lucky there were no people sitting in the seats. >> i know it. picture this, last night u.s. open, louis armstrong stadium in queens, new york. the u.s. open, right? it's going on and all of a sudden this drone hits in the southwest area of the stadium. luckily, as you can see, where no one is sitting. we don't know the weight of that, but what if it hit somebody, right? >> or the tennis players. >> they had to stop the game. panetta actually won the match. she said afterwards she thought it was a bomb. she told the associated press with everything going on in the
world, i thought, okay, it's over. that's how things happen. can you imagine? so anyway, 1:00 this morning they actually arrested a new york city teacher. he's an employee of the new york city department of education, daniel verly. 26 years old. they have charged him with reckless endangerment and then some local law ordinances. reckless operation of a drone. >> i didn't know there was such a charge. >> i didn't either. keeping up with technology, right? and reckless operation of a drone outside of a new york city park where you can actually use them and in an undesignated area. so he is out now pending his first court appearance. >> interesting. jean casarez, many thanks. still to come in the "newsroom," tom brady is a four-time super bowl champion but his biggest win may be the one he scored in court over the nfl. so what's next?
woman: when a student understands a concept for the first time. man: when the students get it. man: their eyes get big, the lightbulb pops on. woman: "i got it, i think i got it!" they light up. it's like magic. woman: this is not just a job. woman: the rewards i get are... priceless. man: we help kids grow, and that's part of the rush of teaching.
the nfl firing back this morning. league officials say they plan to appeal a judge's decision which nullifies tom brady's four-game deflategate suspension. despite the potential appeal, brady will suit up for the new england patriots' opener next week. but someone will be noticeably absent, and that would be the commissioner, roger goodell. he often attends big games and the season's first game featuring the reigning champ with typically qualify. rachel nichols joins us now with
the latest. is it a snub by the commissioner? >> look, this is the first time, carol, in the near decade that roger goodell has been commissioner that he won't attend the nfl season opener. his office said that it was because he didn't want to be a distraction. i don't know. i think maybe all the patriots' fans that are going to be there maybe had something to do with it as well. we are not exactly sure, but the visual is pretty amazing. look, this is the season opener of the nfl. it's also where the super bowl champions are going to raise their banner. now, before yesterday their quarterback, their star, tom brady, wasn't even going to be allowed in the building for that. his suspension meant he couldn't be on the grounds of the stadium. now he's going to be there cheering along with the crowd and it's roger goodell who won't be in the building. >> interesting. very, very interesting. something else interesting, i understand you have a special coming up this weekend? >> absolutely. i'm co-hosting with hall of fame quarterback dan marino, can't get any bigger than that, so that's going to be fun. we have some big interviews,
too, including with quarterback peyton manning. manning's name actually came up in all this deflategate mess as well. this was because tom brady's e-mails were vetted in the investigation, and in one e-mail he's actually trash talking to his father about how he's going to outlast peyton manning in his career. manning's longevity has been such a big topic. he's 39 years old. when i interviewed him, i asked him how much longer he's going to play because some people think he should hang it up after this season. look what he told me. how much longer do you see yourself playing? >> yeah, it's hard to say. you know, i don't have -- i'm not able to predict the future. i'm looking forward to playing this season and then, you know, like always, i think you have to kind of assess things at the end of the season, but i certainly hope to be playing next year as well. i still enjoy competing, and i think as long as you can compete, you can help a team, i
think everybody wants to keep doing it. if you can do it into your 40s, you know, all the better. but right now i feel good, and i want to keep playing as long as i do feel good and as long as i can still help a team. >> you know, of course, an e-mail was recently made public in which tom brady told his dad he'd ultimately win that friendly rivalry between you two. what was your reaction? >> tom sent me a text, he apologized my name was brought up into this. it was no harm, no foul. it was an unnecessary apology. tom and i have had a good friendship throughout our careers and we'll continue to have a good friendship long after we play. so i really didn't give it a whole lot of attention. >> now, after all this happened, peyton said he didn't even really consider that trash talk from tom brady. i asked peyton what his own trash talk game was like. he said somewhere between poor and very poor. so he's not much of a trash
talker either. >> he's such a charming guy, isn't he? >> absolutely. >> he's awesome. rachel, thanks so much. i appreciate it as always. as we get ready for the regular season, tune into cnn's pro football preview with rachel. she'll be joined by co-host dan marino and special guests like peyton manning and pete carroll. that's sunday afternoon 3:30 eastern right here on cnn. the next hour of cnn "newsroom" starts now. happening now in the "newsroom," the boy on the beach laid to rest this morning as we hear his family's story. >> i did all in my power to say them. i couldn't. >> the desperation outweighing the danger for thousands more migrants. where are they going to go? also, kisses, hugs, and soon wedding bells in kentucky. a clerk denying gay marriage
licenses in jail this morning, but her fight isn't over yet. plus, jeb bush's fighting words. >> when he attacks me personally or disparages my family, damn right i'm going to fight back. >> why he says donald trump cannot insult his way to the white house. let's talk live in the cnn "newsroom." and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. he has become the face of a humanitarian crisis. his small lifeless body the symbol of desperation to flee war and poverty. this image made the world stop and pay attention, and these images capturing the promise and hope that has unleashed a flood of refugees across much of europe and into danger. a few hours ago the family of the 2-year-old syrian boy watched him being buried alongside his mother and 4-year-old brother. they, too, drowned. the family -- the father of the family, the sole survivor, returned with them to syria, the war-torn country they were try
so desperately to escape. everything i was dreaming of is gone, the father says. i want to bury my children and sit beside them until i die. his sister in canada who was awaiting their arrival is haunted by his description of watching his son die. >> so he closed his eyes and he let him go. he looked around for his wife. she was floating in the water. it's like a balloon. he said you should see how she looked like. he said i did all in my power to save them. i couldn't. nobody else could save them. everyone in the boat tried to save their life. i told him i'm so sorry. i shouldn't send you the money
to go. if i didn't send you the money, you wouldn't go. and he said don't blame yourself. i know you did it to help us a lot. >> the migrants are finding many european countries overwhelmed and unwelcoming, frankly. this is the seen year budapest, hungary. desperate migrants asking where is the world? and next to them tensions are building in a standoff between police and migrants. moments ago huh garian police began pushing migrants back on a train where they have been holed up for more than 24 hours. the migrants are demanding safe passage to germany. frederik pleitgen has witnessed it all and he joins us with more. hi, fred. >> reporter: hi, carol. yeah, we witnessed that scene unfold. what was going on basically throughout the better part of the morning was that these migrants who were on the train which has been stationary here at the station for well over 24 hours now were obviously very angry, very frustrated.
she started speaking to us and then what the hungarian police did is they took another train to block the view towards the train that the migrants were on and then sent in i would say a little over 100 riot police to secure that train. what they have done, we actually have pictures of that right now because we're overlooking the scene. they pushed all the migrants back on the train. they seem to have sealed all the windows as well. we saw the riot police running around there. now it appears the standoff is going on there right now and continues to go on and it appears as the riot police are not letting anyone off the train anymore. as you can see, that entire platform is now full of police officers where before the migrants were at least allowed to mingle. they were allowed to go outside because i have to say, it's very, very hot and sunny here today, so people were, of course, very hot, very weak. many of them very frustrated, but throughout the course of the morning they've been talking to us. they've been asking us for help and that was certainly something that many of the authorities here didn't like. so now what they've done is,
again, they've blocked our view and brought in these well over 100 riot police to then seal off these rail cars. we're waiting to see what happens next, whether they're going to maybe storm this train or whether or not this train might be going somewhere else. right now it really is up in the air, but the standoff has certainly once again escalated within this tragic situation that's unfolding all over europe, carol. >> all right. frederik pleitgen reporting live for us near budapest, bung gahu. craig is with the united nations human rights office leading the work on migration issues. he joins us live from geneva, switzerland. welcome, craig. >> thanks, carol. good to be here. >> nice to have you here. why is hungary treating these migrants like this? >> we think this is a part of a greater failure which, indeed, is global, but certainly is manifest very strongly in europe at this moment. a failure to really develop migration policies that are based on the one hand evidence,
the real situation on the ground, and the other hand the values and norms of international law. this really is what happens, we believe, and it's happening in so many countries when migration policy is determined on the basis of base politics, lowest common denominator politics, and let's face it, sometimes a great deal of xenophobia, hatred, and racism makes its way into the mix as well. there is no migration crisis in europe just as there is no migration crisis in the united states, for example. this is just a massive failure of empathy, a failure to look at the evidence and come up with solutions that work, and it's a fill you're of migration governance from hungary to the opposite side of the country. >> i can understand what you're saying. i'm going to read a quote from the hungarian prime minister. we don't want to criticize any other country. all countries have the right to decide whether they want to have a large number of muslims in their countries. if they want to live together with them, they can. we don't want to.
and i think we have the right to decide that we do not want a large number of muslim people in our country. so does that mean he's eventually going to send these people back to syria, back to iraq? >> i think it's very telling when you have politicians making statements so directly xenophobic and racism. it's what really is behind the problem that we're seeing now. migration is a fact of life for all people, including for europeans. there are about 28 million european citizens who migrate out of europe every day. a dozen or so european countries where you have more em grants than immigrants. and yet what we're really seeing here is a bush pac nback not ag migration in general or refugee this is particular but really against groups of people identified as on a basis of their race and religion. it's not acceptable, and not acceptable under international law. >> a lot of penal look to the united states to times of crisis. a reporter asked donald trump, one of the men running for
president in this country, if he's open to allowing syrian migrants into the united states. let's listen. >> should we be letting some of those people into this country? >> so horrible on the humanitarian basis when you see that. it's like incredible what's going on but we have so many problems and the answer is possibly yes, possibly yes. >> okay. so he says possibly yes. do you think at some point the united states will be expected to take in some of these people? >> well, i think the united states has an obligation to admit refugees under the 1951 convention. it also has obligations to respect the human rights of all migrants regardless of their status or where they come from. i think really what's important here is you see a slight shift in the debate. you know, it's very easy for politicians to use xenophobic rhetoric and sound like the hardest hardliner when it comes to admitting people in need from other countries. but now it's become more
difficult this week, and i think we have to say that the absolute horrific tragic of aylan kurdi and his family and thousands of others who have died in the m he had mediterranean has pulled back the curtain that has been put up by politicians and others that have been trying to demonize and paint migrants and refugees as somehow being horrible creatures, waves of invaders or interlopers, and when people see the body, the broken body of that small child on the beach, aylan with his small fragile hand, he's pulled back the curtain, and no politician it seems to me can challenge that image with xenophobic rhetoric and get away with it as perhaps they could have only a week ago. >> craig, thank you so much for joining me this morning. i appreciate it. it's being touted as a significant new lead in the hunt for those three men accused of killing an illinois police officer. footage taken by a home security
camera that police believe may show the three men suspected of gunning down that beloved officer. but so far exactly what's on that video camera has remained a secret. rosa flores is in fox lake, illinois. so why has it remained a secret? >> announcer: good morning. that vizio is their most promising lead. the only description we have of the suspect comes from the radio exchange lieutenant gliniewicz had with police dispatch and there we learned these three suspects are two white males and a black male. that is very, very vague. so now we have the surfacing of this surveillance video which authorities are hoping will give these cop killers a face. >> the video was turned over to us by a third party individual who was a police officer, and
based on his description about what he was told was on that video, it matched the description of two male white isn' subjects and a black subject walking past this camera. again, we don't believe in coincidences. however, we still don't know and i can't verify exactly whether this video is relevant to the case, but at this point it's probably one of the most significant ones we've recovered. >> and as you might imagine, this community still on edge. there are about 100 agents in this region that are sifting through video. other videos that have been turned over, following leads, looking for clues, trying to figure out who these three suspects are, and, carol, we've also learned that on monday the funeral for lieutenant gliniewicz will take place at about 10:00 a.m. eastern. there will be a viewing and then later that afternoon he will actually be laid to rest, and
he's a father of four and also a husband. carol? >> rosa flores reporting live for us this morning. in sacramento, california, police are hunting for a gunman who killed one college student and wounded two others at sacramento city college. classes resumed today at the school which was on lockdown yesterday as police went from classroom to classroom looking for the shooter. one student remain this is the hospital with serious wounds. a third student suffered a minor flesh wound. police say it grew out of an argument in which one person pulled a knife and the other person pulled a gun. still to come in the "newsroom," will he or won't he? vice president joe biden has a lot to say about whether he'll enter the race in 2016.
and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
an event in atlanta. >> unless i can go to my party and the american people and say that i'm able to devote my whole heart and my whole soul to this endeav endeavor, it would not be appropriate, and everybody talks about a lot of other factors, the other people in the race and whether i can raise the money and whether i can put together an organization. that's not the factor. the factor is can i do it? can my family? >> vice president biden says he's still gauging his family's emotional energy to join the race calling it the most important factor in his decisionmaking process.
with me now to talk about this, cnn politics reporter jeremy diamond and susan fereccio from "the washington examiner." thank you both for being with me. so jeremy, mr. biden, he appeared at a synagogue. he was speaking to jewish leaders about the iran deal. at times he kind of sounded presidential as he talked about that deal. >> yeah. definitely. and the interesting part is that this speech was billed as him defending the iran deal, selling it to the jewish community, but he took a long time to actually get there. before that he was touting the administration's record on foreign policy, everything from gaining momentum against isis to other key foreign policy issues, and all the while touting his movement in those decisions saying -- playing up his role in boosting the pro-israel community, saying he takes a backseat to no one when it comes to israel. it was definitely interesting as vice president biden is
considering a 2016 run to hear him tout the administration's record and his involvement, his role in that record, successes as he would call them. >> and susan, you heard joe biden mention money because, you know, he's not worth $10 billion like donald trump. he can't run without raising money, and he's way behind. so is it feasible he could catch up? >> he says it is but in reality hillary clinton has a massive head start. she's already raised $47 million in the first quarter. she has rounded up many of the big donors, but there are some who are a little nervous given her situation with the benghazi hearings and her e-mail server controversy. there are those out there who are saying, hey, we need to have a backup plan or maybe they want to look toward another candidate with bernie sanders catching up with her in the polls. so i think biden is correct in that it's viable for him to be able to round up the money to be able to do this. it would be really hard though, carol, and he's running out of time. he would really need to make a decision quickly, and i thought that speech yesterday, as jeremy
said, he was touting the administration and his role in that, but i got a mixed signal from him. he sounded like he was trying to decide if his own heart would be in this effort, and it doesn't sound like he's made up his mind yet. >> susan ferrechio, jeremy diamond, i have to cut it short because we have breaking news out of hungary. let's go live to budapest because the migrants there have just decided to walk to the austrian border, forget about the train. you can see arwa damon walking with these migrants. arwa, what can you tell us? >> reporter: carol, there are thousands of people, most of them refugees from the war in iraq and syria, who a short while ago decided that they weren't going to wait any longer. they were not going to wait for any sort of political decision. they were not going to wait for anyone to come to their assistance. they were simply going to try to
walk to their final destination, and that is first off the border between hungary and austria and then if they have to, they say, onwards to germany. pretty much everybody who was at that budapest train station just waiting decided to pack up. parents have been carrying their children on their shoulders. others have been walking. you see some of thaem carrying bottles of water. this has been heartening because the hungarian government and security forces have been fairly hostile towards the migrants. these bottles of water were handed out to them by ordinary citizens, people who were so upset by what they were seeing. many of them upset at the fact their government was treating these people like this that they came and met them on the highway, handing out water to them. people say that they've already walked so far. they've come so far across europe that if walking is what it's going to take to get them where they want to be, then,
fine, that is what they're going to do. it does seem as if this may have taken the police a bit by surprise. they have not been able to stop this flow of humanity, and we are on the main highway that links budapest and vienna. instead, they have set up something of a security barrier. the police are walking alongside them making sure that cars do stay a fairly safe distance away, but it's all fairly dramatic when you think about it. when you think about the desperation that drives someone, especially a person, a parent with little children, to just keep walking, and when you think about the fact that these people want nothing more except just to get out of hungary and have this chapter that so many of them say was filled with such misery and inhumane treatment to be over. >> it's a long way to berlin though, arwa. a long way to germany. that's thousands of miles.
>> reporter: it is, and when you say that to them, i don't know if you can pan over, there's a woman who is walking with her little baby, walking this entire way. they've already come thousands of miles. they started their journey remember in turkey. they took a boat across the aegean. in some cases across the mediterranean. they then walked through greece. they walked through large chunks of macedonia and serbia. they walked across borders. they have camped out in forests. they have slept in the streets. so for them, they say that given everything that they've been through, they will do it. they will do this walk, carol, if that is what it is going to take for them to finally get to the europe that they've always imagined it because so far, they say, the experiences that they've been through, that cannot be europe. they cannot accept that a part of the world that upholds human
rights, that upholds and respects an individual's dignity would have treated them like this, and they are so determined, and look at another person carrying these kids on their shoulders. so determined, especially the parents, that they're going to give their children that life that they believe their kids deserve. a life that doesn't exist for them, carol, back in their homelands. >> all right. arwa damon bringing us some powerful pictures out of budapest, hungary. those people saying they won't let the trains leave the station so gets what. we're going to walk to the austrian border, maybe walk all the what i to germany, we just want a safe place for our children and a chance for a new life. arwa damon bringing us some powerful pictures this morning. i'll be right back. so what about that stock? actually, knowing the kind of risk that you're comfortable with,
i'd steer clear. straight talk. multiplied by 13,000 financial advisors it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. if you struggle you're certainly not alone. fortunately, many have found a different kind of medicine that lowers blood sugar. imagine what it would be like to love your numbers. discover once-daily invokana®. it's the #1 prescribed in the newest class of medicines that work with the kidneys to lower a1c. invokana® is used along with diet and exercise to significantly lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. it's a once-daily pill that works around the clock. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose weight.
invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis. stop taking and call your doctor right away if you experience symptoms such as rash, swelling, or difficulty breathing or swallowing. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time.
and good morning, i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. a historic day unfolds in rowan county, kentucky. this morning the embattled clerk's office there issued its first marriage license to a same-sex couple, the pair i talked with yesterday. you see them there. the clerk had blocked their license and defied the u.s. supreme court ruling. well, the clerk responsible for that wakes up in jail this morning. cnn's alexandra field is outside of the clerk's office in morehead, kentucky, to tell us more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. a lot of kim davis' supporters are here outside of the county clerk's office while she is in another county's jail, but at the same time there are also marriage equality advocates who came out for the day. they had been waiting forever since the supreme court ruled in
june that marriage equality was the law of the land. we spoke to william smith and jim yates who said they came to this clerk's five times to get a license but they were denied that license ever since kim davis ordered her staff not to issue marriage licenses following the decision. today they came back for the sixth time. we talked to them just before they went inside. >> we've had supporters here since the beginning from this county, from this community, and there are people who have been here every day since the beginning of this, every day out here protesting. you don't really realize the emotional charge to it and the hate until you see it up front, you know, up close, but we're trying not to -- we just want to really go get our license right now. >> and yates and smith did just that. they successfully obtained the license making them the first same-sex couple to get this license in rowan county. it happened because while kim
davis has said that he will not sign these licenses and she will not authorize her clerks to, a judge asked five of her deputy clerks to agree to issue these licenses. there is a sixth deputy clerk, kim davis' son, who said he will not issue the licenses. kim davis was given the opportunity to get out of jail after a judge ordered she be put in jail for contempt of court refusing to follow the order to issue the licenses. she was given the opportunity get out if she agreed not to interfere with the licensing process, but he attorney said he could not guarantee his client would do that. so today she remains in jail. >> alexandra field reporting live from kentucky this morning. thank you. also this morning, family and friends will soon say their final farewell to a slain texas officer. visitation is expected to begin at the top of the hour for sheriff deputy darren goforth. he was shot to death a week ago as he pumped gas into his police cruiser. in the meantime, a motorcycle ride held in honor of goforth began just moments ago and the
texas governor, greg abbott, is a issuing a statewide call to stand with law enforcement. cnn's ed lavandera live in houston. good morning, ed. >> reporter: good morning, carol. well, it will be an incredibly emotional scene here in the city of houston as the sheriff's department here lays to rest one of their own, deputy darren goforth. we've already seen an incredible turnout of officers from around the state and around the country coming here to way their respects. incredibly emotional. the service will not last particularly long, about 45 minutes to an hour, and i think some of the more poignant moments will become the sheriff of the department will be speaking, but also two other officers, close friends of darren goforth as well will be giving their memorials at the service. and then afterwards it will be some of the most emotional scenes you will probably see throughout the day. a wall of honor coming out here of the church, leaving the church, and then the motorcade
to the burial plot which is just several miles away. and what is expected to happen is an outpouring of support throughout the community. people expected to line up across the street to watch the motorcade go by on the way to the burial plot. so as you mentioned, the governor of texas will also be here at the memorial service. he issued a statewide stand with law enforcement pledge throughout the state of texas and many people heeding that call, wearing blue and urging people to turn on their car lights if they're driving around wherever they're driving around at 11:00 this morning central time. he spoke yesterday about just how important this memorial service is. >> asking every citizen in the state of texas to wear blue. if you are on the road at 11:00 a.m., if you would turn your flashers on for one minute. collectively, we're going to send a tidal wave of support across the state of texas to the men and women who keep our community safe.
>> reporter: so, carol, you're already seeing that tidal wave of support the governor is talking about here. as you have seen already, several thousand law enforcement officers from around the state of texas and around different parts of the country showing up here this morning to start paying their respects to darren goforth. >> ed lavandera reporting live from houston this morning. i'll be right back.
i'm angela, and i quit smoking with chantix. for ten long years i was ready to quit. but i couldn't do it on my own. i needed help and chantix was there. and i did it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. i never thought i would be a non-smoker and i'm so proud.

and native americans building on the momentum that has him nipping at hillary clinton's heels in the polls. suzanne malveaux tracked him down in des moines. good morning, suzanne. >> reporter: good morning, carol. they're feeling the burn as they like to say here in iowa. he does have a number of events today. we're talking about latino round table, an event with american indians, involves two stops in creed aedar rapids later today. had a chance to catch up with him one-on-one and talk about things. i have to tell you, carol, he hates to talk about the horse race. he'd rather about the issues, expanding social security as well as providing tuition-free education, things like that, minimum wage. we talked about those things but he also did acknowledge the reality of where he is in this campaign, weeks away, months away from the iowa caucuses and that is how does he translate these big numbers, these big crowds into people who are going to vote at the iowa caucuses? >> we are growing much faster
than we have the infrastructure to organize, so what we are doing now is hiring a lot of people. we have now dozens of people on the ground here in iowa. great crowds are wonderful, but that does not necessarily translate into votes. >> reporter: so that is his biggest challenge now, carol. how does he do that? he really has to build the infrastructure on the ground to make that happen. we also heard as well he refuses to talk about hillary clinton's e-mail troubles. that is something he does not want to put on his plate, so he really didn't address that question, but what he did do when he talked to the crowds, carol, it's very obamaesque. haf covered obama in 2007 and 2008 in iowa, it's the same phrases. he's talking about political revolutions. it's not about me, it's about you, changing the world, changing the country. i asked him about that. i said you sound very much like obama especially to the folks in iowa hearkening back to those days. do you think you're alike in that way and how are you different? here is how he responded.
>> after he got elected he had the illusion, the mistake, of believing that he could sit down with the republicans and just work out some good compromises. that was never going to happen. the only way that we change life for the middle class in this country is when millions of people become actively involved in the political process. no president can do it alone. >> reporter: carol, it was a huge surprise when obama took the state in the iowa caucuses and so it's interesting to see how these crowds are responding to him and the one thing that obama did have was he had this amazing campaign structure, grassroots structure on the ground. that's what bernie sanders says he has got to have, he has got to accomplish that in the weeks ahead. carol? >> suzanne malveaux reporting live from des moines, iowa. ied explosions in the sinai peninsula injuring four u.s. soldiers. the soldiers are part of a
multinational peacekeeping force supporting a treaty between egypt and israel. u.s. officials are increasingly worried about security in the region and israel is calling on egypt to get tougher with jihadi groups in the area. a new york teacher faces numerous charges after police say he crashed a drone during the u.s. open. the drone was seen floating into the stadium from the east before slamming down into an unoccupied area of the stands. tennis match was halted as authorities investigated but was eventually completed. and this isn't something you actually want to run into. a king cobra on the loose right now in orlando, florida. the owner seen here says the venomous snake escaped from his age after a tree limb fell on his house during a storm. a group of experienced snake handlers are now searching for this snake. i hope they -- oh! shock and disbelief in the small town of millis, massachusetts, where a
24-year-old part-time police officer is in deep, deep trouble for making up a story that he had been shot at. police now say the officer shot at his own vehicle which caught on fire after crashing. bob ward of boston affiliate wfxf says local residents were stunned when they learned the truth. >> we have determined that the officer's story was fabricated. >> reporter: shocking news in millis one day after police swarmed into town ordering a shelter in place looking for an armed suspect who shot at a cruiser causing that police vehicle to crash and burst into flames. police now say it was all a lie. the 24-year-old part-time police officer who claimed he was a victim will soon be fired and will soon face charges. >> i know for myself i still am very upset and don't know exactly how to feel right now except i'm concerned for the other members of the department.
>> reporter: the news sending shock waves through the small town. the police are saying the cop made it up. >> no. seriously? >> reporter: yeah, seriously. >> how is that even possible? >> reporter: and that's what police are trying to figure out. millis police, state police detectives spending the entire day scouring an area off forest road looking for more evidence. they never found any. when the ballistic report came back they determine the only shots fired came from the police officer's own weapon and the mysterious man in the pickup truck the officer said opened fire on him police say never existed. it's almost too much for people in town to take in. you saw the cops around here, the helicopter, the s.w.a.t. team. >> from almost every town. >> reporter: and now you hear it's all fake. >> that's kind of crazy. >> kind of crazy is right. that was bob ward reporting from boston affiliate wfxt. the officers' name will not be made public until he's formally charged. still to come, ivanka and ma lan ya, are they donald's trump

donald trump may seem like a one-man show, but it could be two women in his life who wield some of the biggest influence. brian todd has more for you. >> reporter: he's been scolded, cornered, has taken the toughest jabs on a highly charged campaign topic. >> you call women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals. >> reporter: donald trump later appeared to blame that on fox's moderator megyn kelly's hormones, democrats pounced.
