>> a person in a zorro costume. >> it raises questions if there is a major event. how prepared are airports. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. the wait to hear donald trump explain his immigration policy may be over or not. overnight, trump tweeted i'll make a major special on illegal immigration on wednesday. his speech happens after a week of vesication of backing off the campaign. his team was on the sunday shows, but neither his running mate or campaign manager could give an answer on what trump plans to do with the millions of immigrants in the u.s. illegally. >> let's be clear. nothing has changed about his position. on dealing with illegal
immigration, he put this at the center of the campaign of the primaries. in his position and principles have been consistent. >> the one issue you did not address is whether or not the 11 or 12 million undocumented immigrants will be removed by a deportation force as you heard mr. trump say last november. is that policy still operative? >> you heard him describe there in his usual plain spoken american way was a mechanism, not a policy. >> how do they leave? do they self deport? or deportation force or something that helps them leave the country immediately as he previously said he would like to have happen. >> that is the question here, john. >> that is the question and he had an answer for the last 14 months, but now does not. now with less than a month to go before the first presidential debate and two months before the election, not much time to get
that message on immigration. let's get the latest from cnn's diane gallagher. >> reporter: john and christine, the first debate is a month away. officials say donald trump spent part of his sunday getting ready for it. they did debate at the trump golf club in new jersey. one topic is immigration. specifically what will happen to the 11 undocumented immigrants in the u.s. late sunday, trump announced a major speech this wednesday discussing illegal immigration. it will be in arizona which is key to the debate over what to do about it. of course, this follows last week where he gave contradictory answers where those have to be deported. saying he wanted a softening of his policy and some may see it
as him hardening on the issue. what trump is emphasizing now is after being elected, he will deport those not in the country lawfully and no path to legalization unless they leave and come back legally and pay back taxes. the issue is, should there be a force to deport those in the country illegally and whether they should leave the country. saying he wants it done in a humane way. politicians question exactly where he stood on those points and analysts say he was hurting himself by delaying the speech. mike pence defended trump's approach on cnn's state of the union. >> you see someone engaging the american people and listening to the american people. he is hearing from all sides. i promise you, he is a decisive leader. he will stand on the principles
that have pinned his commitment on illegal immigration in this country. that is what you will learn. >> reporter: all eyes on arizona for answers come wednesday. john and christine. >> diane, thank you. trump drawing fire for the way he recently appealed to african-americans. asking what the hell do they have to lose by voting for him. by making his pitch to largely white audiences. >> donald trump has not held an event in the black community. he has not gone to a black church as hillary clinton has done. he has not gone to historic black colleges. he has not met with the mothers of children who have been slain and killed from violence in this country. >> but late last night, trump campaign announced he will speak on a black christian television channel. that interview is set for 11:00 saturday morning. he has a long way to go with the
standing with polls. a wall street journal poll shows 1% with black voters. he tweeted about the tragic death of nba player dwyane wade's cousin. she was shot while pushing her 3-week-old baby. he wrote, dwyane wade's baby was shot and killed walking her baby. just what i have been saying. african-americans will vote trump. that drew condemnation of those accusing him of exploiting the matter. chicago police have now charged two men with murder in the death of wade's cousin nykea aldridge. officials say the brothers were shooting at a man who dropped off some women nearby. they say the brothers thought the man might be armed so they chased him starting shooting and
missed. hitting aldridge instead. cnn sat down with nykea's mother who spoke about her daughter's total devotion to her children. >> reporter: john and christine, it was moving having this conversation with diane. she wanted to celebrate her daughter's life. she was a fashionista. she loved to do her hair. she liked to write poetry. her life was about her children. >> she was trying to make a better life for her and her kids. that was the most important thing in her life. her kids. to make sure they got out of situations that she had been in. they tell each other they miss their mom. they want their mom. it just hurts to hear kids saying they want their mom and
their mom won't be in their lives anymore. only through spirit and pictures. that's the only way they know their mom for the rest of their lives. the only thing they have to go on is what they have. it is heartbreaking. oh, god. it is heartbreaking to hear that and raise her own children. i truly, truly from the bottom of my heart, i forgive them. i forgive them. i can't bring her back. i forgive them. i pray to god that they pray to god to ask for forgiveness for what they have done. they have taken a person's life senselessly. >> reporter: heartbreaking hearing the pain that mother is going through and remarkable through that pain she still has a message of forgiveness for the men who committed this crime. unfortunately, this is not the first time that diane has gone
through this grief. her oldest daughter was killed from gun violence ten years ago. john and christine. >> rachel crane, thank you. among the attention about aldridge's death, there is more gunfire in chicago. the police department says four people killed and 23 injured since saturday afternoon. chicago tribune reports 2,208 shooting victims so far this year. that is on pace to exceed last year's total. fed chief janet yellen prepped the world for a rate increase. yellen talked about rosy data and strong labor and housing markets last week. a solid jobs report this friday could determine if we see a bump in september or december.
ultra low rates propel stocks to record highs. it has been seven years without a recession. seven years. the central bank has been doing the bulk of the work so far. the next president will have to spend money to boost growth. many think government spending is too restrictive. they predict infrastructure could create jobs. trump and clinton propose spending on bridges and roads, but the house is reluctant to spend more. global markets are mixed this morning. u.s. futures are lower. a lot of people think whoever is the next president has to work with congress. >> a lot of people i have been speaking with are concerned if there is a recession. you cannot cut rates. >> a recession is inevitable. that is a business cycle. we have been expanding for seven years.

u.s./kurdish rebels. we have more with nick paton walsh. good morning, nick. >> reporter: this how policy turns to pessimism. they thought a nato ally would send in to take the fight to as many for a long period of time. president erdogan making it clear they would fight isis and the syrian kurds with the same determination. it doesn't appear so. the violence is with the turkey forces advancing against syrian/kurdish forces. they would leave the key town and recently taken off isis, but they leave that and apart to not have occurred at this stage. now it appears we see syrian rebels with turkish support that the u.s. have been backing with
special forces and effective in the fight against isis. what a nightmare more u.s. policy. it has always struggled to find the right allies. it has two key people that need to work together and now they are fighting each other. that is vital in the key closing stage in the fight against isis. >> thank you, nick. tropical storms could be headed to florida and the carolinas this week. meteorologist pedram javaheri has the latest. >> good morning, john and christine. this is the time of year we watch carefully. not one, but four tropical interests over the last couple hours have popped up. tropical depression 8 and 9. the most imminent threat to land. you look and climatologically speaking, you see the peak activity across this part of the world. the main interests at this point

security screening and on to the tarmac. all of this because of loud noises. police say the official airport twitter account noted. also detained a man in a zorro costume. unclear if the two incidents, loud noises and people breaching security and zorro were the cause. >> that is low for l.a.x. >> what about the guys in the batman costume? it is l.a.x. investigators are trying to determine what caused one of the engines on a southwest airline to fail at 30,000 feet. that plane was flying from new orleans to orlando. passengers say there was an explosion. the pilots made a safe emergency landing in pensacola. no one was injured. southwest said it was a mechanical issue. the cornell university campus now the scene of a homicide investigation. police say a student from nearby

do they self deport? or a deportation force that helps them leave the country immediately as he previously said he liked to see happen. >> that's really the question here, john. >> that is the question that has been asked and not answered now for several days. with less than a month to go before the first presidential debate, time is running out for a clear message on immigration. with the latest on that from cnn's diane gallagher. >> reporter: john and christine, that first presidential debate is less than a month away and the campaign official tells us that donald trump did spend part of his sunday getting ready for it. we are told his advisors did debate prep at the trump national golf resort in new jersey. one topic is immigration. specifically what should happen to the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the u.s. that is still one dogging the trump campaign. last sunday, trump announced he will give a major speech this

some said he was hurting himself by delaying the speech. mike pence defended trump's approach. >> you should see a ceo at work. someone engaging the american people and listening the american people. he is hearing from all sides. i promise you, he will stand on the principles that have under pinned his commitment to end illegal immigration in the country. that is what you will learn. >> reporter: all eyes will be on arizona for answers come wednesday. john and christine. >> we will see if the answers do come. trump has been talking a lot about issues involving african-americans asking them in his words what the hell do they have to lose by voting for him. but maybe making his pitch to largely white audiences. >> he has not gone to a black church. he has not gone to historic black colleges like hillary
clinton. he has not met with the mothers of children who have been slain and killed from violence in the country. >> overnight, the trump campaign announced donald trump will speak to african-americans on a black christian television channel. the interview is set for saturday morning at 11:00. still, trump has a long way to go to improve standing among african-american voters. a pew poll showed trump has 2% support among african-americans. the wall street journal poll is 1% among black voters. over the weekend, donald trump really invited more controversy when he tweeted about the tragic death of nba player dwyane wade's cousin nykea aldridge. shot while pushing a stroller in chicago. quote, she was just shot and killed in chicago walking a baby. african-americans will vote

the exchange next year. that is according to a new study by the kaiser foundation. a pull back could mean one option in counties. that would give americans far less choice this year. companies like united health care and aetna say they lost money through the exchange. smaller companies have shutdown. the marketplace was designed to hold down prices by creating competition. a smaller number of insurers means those who remain may raise premiums. a structure problem. italy right now in grief over last week's tragic earthquakes. towns demolished. people still unaccounted for. search is still under way. we will talk about the rebuilding effort next.
new developments this morning in italy where an earthquake struck last week killing at least 281 people. the focus now shifting from rescue to recovery. the focus is whether or not to rebuild in the mountain towns. we have frederik pleitgen live in amatrice. >> reporter: of the 281 people killed, 230 were killed here alone. i want to show you what is going on. this has turned from a search and rescue to a recovery. crews believe there are at least three to ten bodies there. there is a famous restaurant where there are a few bodies still in there. they cannot get to them simply because the scene is as you see it right there. you are seeing some of the crews are actually starting to tear
down some of the houses that have been badly damaged. the reason for that, john, that with every aftershock that happens here, over 1,000 aftershocks since the initial earthquake. some houses are in danger of coming down or destroyed. that say big threat to the search crews working. they have to make that environment safe for the guys working there. at the same time, the local population, survivors, still traumatized by what happened. scared of the aftershocks. mourning those killed. almost every family in the town was affected. there are some, however, who are saying they will carry on with their lives. there was a wedding in the ruins of a church. they had it outside the church. they said this earthquake has done so much damage. we want to show there is life here as well. there are people who are trying to defy this situation, but at the same time, still very, very difficult for many people. many people very scared and sad at the same time. trying to pick up the pieces.

winds on the shores. look at the energy into the gulf of mexico. water temperatures in the mid-80s. on the coastline, 90 degrees. that is the warmest we have seen. the center of circulation for the storm is tropical depression 9 sitting across cuba. the forecast guidance on this will take the storms to the north and eventually push to the east. we take thursday night around tampa and north to the big bend of florida for a strong tropical storm. it doesn't look like it will get to hurricane strength, but things change. guys. >> we will watch that closely. cbs news man charles osgood is calling it a career. he is about to turn 84. he made the announcement at the close of the program he hosted for two decades "cbs sunday morning." >> some of you heard rumors i won't be hosting the broadcast much longer. i'm hear to tell you the rumors are true. it has been a great run, but after nearly 50 years at cbs,
including the last 22 years here at "sunday morning" the time has come. >> charles osgood's last broadcast is september 25th. you can still see him on the radio doing the osgood file. they had quite a run on that show. >> they have. that voice. his cadence. good luck to you. beyonce showing why she is queen bey with an epic 15-minute performance. she won video of the year for "formation." britney spears considered lack luster during her come back. critics calling it under whelming. kanye west took to the stage for a four-minute speech. he compared himself to steve
