6-inches, up to a foot of total snow really piling up specially along the lakes, those are areas where i am expect to go see a little bit more snow. it's not just here,i can take you out west and we are tracking another system. you see the snow move through the area on tuesday into wednesday and you run out west, getting into the mountain area, into the rockies, we are talking about a foot to up to 2 feet of snow out west but a couple of systems we are paying attention to, guys. clayton: good, i was starting to think that it was getting to be spring. >> not yet. clayton: time is ten minutes after the hour, distrito federalling president trump, the say who became safe haven for illegal immigrants. health health al sharpton, did you hear about this in what he said about jesus that made social media explore in anger. clayton: idaho family getting a shock of their lifetime when a

ideology when migrants or refugees are coming in and i don't know that we have a grip on that. heather: how would you do that? >> asking people about the background and foundation of radical islam, some of the most well-known groups, whether they had association, in lebanon, a small percentage, 2% of people in refugee camps in syria lebanon, turkey, jordan have sympathies with isis after being displayed by the homes, so we must look into that. there's no harm and also in the muslim world, dubai security chief has welcomed this move, saudi arabia's welcomes the move, the countries that we are eliminating from immigration for a temporary moment are also banned from migrating for the same reasons. syrian refugees, i think, should be given the first priority, they are in most distress and for that there's no harm in looking at more intense scrutiny
in every way. we already do, their identities are known to authorities, international committee looks at vetting closely and helps other agencies. national refugee assistance program can also advise the trump administration, but it is a concern radical islam, islamism comes from destabilized, failed states, weak governments, this is where the ideology thrive and we must seek it. heather: the next question is vetting is just the start, what about assimilation in the here? >> here in the united states is tremendous surveys done by pews, muslim americans are more assimilated than anywhere else in the world. we are more likely to mary nonmuslim, we see as spiritual equals, we don't want law founded on a tenant from the quran to supercede or replace an american law. that's coming from believing
muslims in america. so when you're in the current that's the energy of america where most of your friends are not muslim, where you're broadly accepted, assimilation is a natural development, some communities are an exception. i think we need to learn from minnesota, a hundred thousand somalis are settled and they have been serious concerns -- heather: one of the seven countries. >> that's true. we are saying, as i learned about that from somali parents of american-born children that became radicalized. the somalia community itself is asking for help of radicalization. heather: you're not the only muslim that believes that extreme vetting is not a bad idea. why do you think mainstream media we are hearing the opposite. we had a poll that showed this morning, 57% of people agree with the extreme vetting?
>> i think the reasons are complex, first of all, it is not a muslim ban, it is a geopolitical ban, heather: 40 other countries. >> i think there was a real attempt, serious attempt to racialize all discussion around radical islam. that's dangerous. democratic party wants to portray itself as ms. immigration proponent, of course, america has built in immigration state. president trump is tightening up the border, there's no harm in that, but healthy, the politicization of making it a race issue is very dangerous and that's what we are seeing. heather: thank you so much for joining us this morning and certainly great to hear from you from your personal experiences. >> thanks for the opportunity. heather: clayton. clayton: thank you, guys, 19 minutes after the hour. anxiety and confusion, a university is offering counseling for college students who are upset over president trump's immigration order.

owners got a chance to meet with the president as he signed an order that that's would reduce regulations on business companies. >> this is small business and this is regulation, this would be the largest ever cut by far in terms of regulation. they will be controlled but it would be a normalized control where you can open your business and expand your business very easily and that's what our country has been all about. cheryl: the order is the most significant regulatory reform since the ronald reagan presidency, for every regulation created, who will be removed? that's one of the campaign promises. he removed funding for the creation of the regulation. handing a regulatory budget of zero for 2017. the military and national security and foreign affairs division is exempt from this. they will oversee this new regulations and we should say that president trump has signed more than a dozen xi cuetive
orders in first 11 days in office, guys, back to you. clayton: thanks, cheryl. now opening doors to transgender children. good morning, nick. thisis a big change for boy scouts of america, this new policy takes effect immediately, membership in cub scouts and boy scouts will be based on gender indicated on application. previously the organization relied on individual's birth certificate to determine eligibility toward single gender programs, in a statement of bsa, in part the boys of america is committed to identify program option that is will help us truly serve the whole family and this is an area that we will
continue to thoughtfully evaluate to bring the benefits of scouting to the greatest number of youth possible all while remaining true to core values outlined in the scout law. and mixed reactions from parents. >> transgender, that's fine. we welcome everybody, a happy family. >> it just would be confusing, it's already kind of a confusing society. it makes it more confusing for my children growing up in that type of environment. >> again, this new policy takes effect immediately. back to you guys. clayton: all right, nick, live for us in greensboro. heather: first the oscars and now the grammy's, stars boycotting the latest show. ♪ ♪ ♪ clayton: kanye west, justin
