12:00 am
welcome, in the united states and all around the world i'm rosemary church. >> i'm george howell following the breaking news this hourzv he on cnn in canada, here is what we know so far, six people are dead, eight others wounded after gunman opena fire at a mosque. this happened as the islamic culture center. >> two suspects have been arrested. the÷ú attack is being investigad as an act of terrorism. we'll want to get the latest now
12:01 am
who joins us fromht new york. we are learning more about this attack and we that you've got more informationç on those who were wounded. do we know any more about the two who were arrested. >> we don't, yet. and as officials are÷ú cautioni to not speculate as to who those two individuals are. we do though, rosemary, wiéndsses are describing this as coordinated attack. this gives us a little more detail as people follow what happen in thatç mosque, furthe details have not come out. we heard within the last half hour talk about the emotional news conference where auá9orities said six people were killed and eight people were injured, those injuries are described as critical at this point as those eight people are at ak(zhospital. if there's any good news out of this, we also learned in that
12:02 am
news conference that 39 people who were inside the mosque at the time of thev: attack were ae to escape unharmed, so that is good news. but again this is described as a coordinated attack at the time when÷ú people were praying insi of that mosque, families included. >> this has made many people very ymuneasy. the mayor there has been talking about this, what did he say and what is he planning to do to protect the mosque's there? >> of course any timeç there's situation where it is described as an act of terrorism this city goes on high alert. one of the first things they do is theyç get their special tea to sort of begin to circulate around the city, change their patterns up to protect areas t]. in this case there will be extra protection across the city, these are those terms that were by new york city aç few years o and they're specialized highly trained, heavily armed forces
12:03 am
that travel around the city at times like this. but the mayor, as youym said, d tweet standing in unity with the muslim community, saying, they'll protect muslims here in new york city,ht rosemary. >> keeping us up to date on this story. there were three, just after 3:00 in the morning in new york city, many thanks÷ú to you. we also have paula newton following it, we'll stay in touch with them. opponents of the trumpzv administration travel ban say they're gearing up for what could be long legal fight. president donald trump signed the executive order on february temporarily banç travel to the united states from seven muslim majority countries, now the white house is trying to clear up the confusion saying green card holdersç people with lawful permanent resident status in the u.s. will be allowed in but they'll go through extra screening if they're coming from one of thoseç banned countries >> homeland security officials say no one is now being detained
12:04 am
from the initial group who was stalked at u.s. airports,yhey have either been released or put on plane back home. there have been some international backlash as well, over the÷ú weekend, they told m trump, the ban on refugees may infringe on the geneva convention. >> the president of the united states pushing backç at criticm on this ban saying that he's trying to keep the u.s. safe. >> he also has sharp words for two trump republicansç who sai the ban likely will not improve u.s. security, more now from athena kojones. >> we're hearing from president trump justifying and defending this move restrictions in the face of criticism, including from some of his own party,ç i'll read to you part of his statement. he said, we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citiznz and voters. he added this is not a muslim
12:05 am
ban as the media is reporting. this is not about religion. =0me said his first priority wi always protect and serve our country, as president i will find ways to help all those who are suffering.ç that is the president responding. what's clear is that the white house is very much feels these moves are necessary. senior administration officials saidç the vetting process for screening people from these countries and refugees in general is inadequate to protect the çu.s.'s national security. so they believe they're taking steps that trump supporters, the people who elected him to office would applaud. but itko seems they are a bit taken aback by the criticism they're receiving, including from their own party by central republican senator johnç mccai of arizona and lindsey graham who put out a statement slamming this move. the president taking to twitter to respond to those two senators former presidential candidate john mccain and lindsey graham
12:06 am
is wrong. they are sadly weak on immigration. the two senators shouldç focusn their energy on isis, illegal immigration and border security, instead of always looking to start world war ÷úiii. so that is how the president is responding to a growing list of critics. >> and peopleç are voicing the outrage across the united states over president trump's travel ÷ú ban. >> in texas people gathered to the international rival of the dallas fort worth airport chanting "i be:)jve that we will win". >> protesters showed up in force at san francisco airport saying resist and refugees are÷ú welco here. and a stand with immigrants rally, that was held there in downtown seattle washington.zv more reaction from los angeles.
12:07 am
>> protesters here at the represents a small sliver of the number of protesters who are here earlier in the day, but as you can see the crowd is still they are making their displeasure known about this executive order. we were told by an immigration lawyer that÷ú there are still se people who are in detention, people who are still detained. but we have been unable to fe authorities. we did hear about one person who was released who was in custody for about 24 hour that is we're told that border patrol went through her phone, lookingsat her photos, also going through her luggage before letting her go. that is just one of the stories that we have heard. as you can see, from this crowd 0j9 me about what has happened and you have a number of lawyers also on the ground trying to assist those who may be impacted by÷ú this executive order, but given
12:08 am
now that we have still a number of protesters here on the ground, it is clearym they don' plan on going anywhere any time soon. cnn, los angeles. >> the u.s. senate top democrat is among thoseç denouncing the immigration order. chuck shumer visibly emotion, said tears runs down theç chee, he vowed to get the president's order overturned. >> this executiveç order was mn spirited and÷ú un-american. it was implemented in a way that created chaos and confusion across the country and it will only serve to em bold÷ú and inspire those around the globe who will do us harm. it must be reversed immediately, senate democrats areç going to introduce legislation to over
12:09 am
turn this and move it as quickly as we can and i, as your zv senator, from new york will flaw, scrap -- claw, scrap and fight with ever fibernb of my being, until these orders are overturned. >> we told the story that a five-year-old who was detained forp hours waiting to to be reunited with his mother on his birthday. you know, families who were separated, some plans that were cancelled. but earlier kellyan.q] conway a counselor said the airport detentions are "small price to pay for the safety of çamerica" >> i was stopped many times, weren't you after 9/11. i didn't resemble or share a name or be a part of÷ú any conspiracy, this is what we do to keep the nation safe. this whole idea they're being separated and ripped from their families it's temporaryç and is
12:10 am
circumstantial whether you were some of those 300 some who are on the aircraft, as opposed to the overym 3,000 children who b more separated from their parents who perished on 9/11. >>p extremist could use this travel ban as propaganda to recruit more followers. in the meantime leaders across the middle east and beyond are v reacting to this travel ban. let's go to instanbul turkey that's live this hour. s this being perceived around the world. what are you hearing from different nations about what's happened here in the united states? eorge, it really depends on which nation it is when it's one of these seven nations that were targeted in this travel ban,ç there's been some strong words coming from sudan, we've heard them say that this -- they regret this decision and theyp say that there were warm
12:11 am
relations or warming of relations between sudan and the united states, that could be in jeopardy now. u)jt from yemen, who said this will only support terrorist and it's those division, there's no justification for it. some really strong words, they actually called in the the intersection of the u.s. in -- that is the swiss ambassador, they called him in to talk to him about this. said it was discriminatory. they said it was no legal justification for this. and so these countries very mucú angry. if you look at other countries in the region, pretty quiet right now. a lot of them probably don't want to attract theç higher of president trump, we know that when someone says something out against him, then he usually responds÷ú harshly, but we did
12:12 am
hear from the turkish deputy prime minister, he said that refugees welcome in turkey, the world's largest zvrefugee hosti country. wide range of statements there and nonstatements. >> ian, what has been the impact q people? i'm sure you've spoken with people, you've heard stories yourself for people who are impacted by this, you know, many of these people just innocent peoplesgoing about their way being held for hours detained for no reason? >> reporter: it's an interesting thing. aúx=u talk to a lot of people have experienced this or who are afraid of going back to united states or what this means for them. all of them have doneç everythg they needed to get a visa, to get a green card. they did everything legally. they pay their taxes. they're productive members of ym
12:13 am
society. some of these people are doctors, they're scientists and there's this bedrock principal of the united states, thiszv persumption of innoncence that you are innocent until proven guilty. a lot of them say we didn't do anything wrong. an the united states and yet we're being treated as criminals. and so this has really effected them. and you just haveç to look at what the deputy prime minister of turkey tweeted out. there are a lot of talented people. there are people work for techy companies who are doing research in different medical fields speaking to one person who is of iranians defense, hisym wife or his fiance can't meet them so they can't get married because she's in iran. she has the proper pa paperwork to go to÷ú the united states. he's from iran he has all the proper paper but they can't meet to get married. a lot of stories there, george. >> çcnn international

12:39 am
long ended up being hasu! some the same ideas. but ideas that pretty interesting one could say, for example, guar"váeed everyone in the country 750 euros whether they work or not that will replace unemployment and others things that people could get. so he's got some ideas like that and very appealing to the left and the voter now in the general election have azv pretty clear choice all the way across the line. they lose fairly far çleft. and they have the right candidate and extreme candidate. so they have a broad spectrum of candidatesç to choose from and there are still a couple of months left. >> certainly marine -- seems to think that the win that donald push for into the front.
