7:03 am
the latest republican presidential debate revealed sharp policy divisions among the candidates. unlike the last prime time debate, they did not complain about the questions. and the focus this morning is on their answers. >> some of the biggest disagreements of the night centered on immigration. candidates also argued over tax cuts, military spending, and u.s.-russian relations. major garrett is in milwaukee where the debate took place. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. after the debate, even campaigns certain their candidates had won, that means all of them, conceded nothing on-stage fundamentally up-not t dsup-end race. how do skilled politicians catch the front-running first timers? donald trump clashed with john kasich and jeb bush on dworgt i will -- on deporting illegal immigrants, an issue that has already divided the republican
7:04 am
field. >> for 11 million people? come on, folks, we all know you can't pick them up and ship them back across the board. it's a silly argument. it's not an adult argument. >> reporter: trump dismissed kasich. >> i built an unbelievable company worth billions of dollars. i don't have to hear from this man. >> reporter: and gave bush a chance to speak. >> thank you, you're so generous. they're doing high fives in the clinton campaign when they hear this. >> reporter: marco rubio and rand paul sparred over military spending and federal deficits. >> how is it conservative to add a trillion dollars in military expenditures? >> i know that the world is a safer and better place and america is the strongest military power in the world. >> reporter: ted cruz, who like rubio is gaining on trump and carson, unveiled a plan to eliminate five federal agencies
7:05 am
but named only four. >> five major agencies that i would he felt the irs, the department of commerce, the department of engine, the department of commerce, and hud. >> reporter: carson briefly confronted questions raised about parts of his life story. >> thank you for not asking me what i said in the 10th grade. i appreciate that. >> reporter: carly fiorina, looking to regain momentum, argued she is better equipped than trump to handle russian president vladimir putin. >> i got to know him very well because we were both on "60 minutes." we were stable mates. >> i would not be talking to vladimir putin right now, although i have met him as well, not in a green room for a show but in a private meeting. >> reporter: and trump drew audible boos when fiorina followed the lead of others to claim a piece of the conversation. >> why does she keep interrupting everybody? >> reporter: one point of clarification on trump and putin. they did not meet in a green
7:06 am
room at "60 minutes." of their interviews for the newsmagazine merely ran side by side. fiorina did meet putin at the site of an economic conference in asia in a setting she once described as a green room. >> thanks, major. florida senator marco rubio is with us from milwaukee. good morning, senator. >> good morning, charm heave. >> you participated in the debate last night. there was much talk about immigration and a debate about deportation. some suggested you might have wanted to weigh in more on that because you oppose deportation. should you have? >> i don't oppose dworeportedin people that are criminals or that have been in this country for long time. we have to have a realistic policy. but you do any of that, the first step is you have to bring illegal immigration under control and prove to the american people that that's happened. then you have to modernize your legal immigration system.
7:07 am
only after you've done those two things can you move to the third step, which is to conduct background checks on everyone who is here illegally. if they're criminals, they have to leave. if they're not, they have to pay taxes, they have to pay a fine, they have to learn english, and they get a work permit. that's all they'll have for at least ten years. i have the most well-defined plan when it comes to immigration. it's an issue we need to confront as a country. my position has been well stated and repeatedly stated. >> senator, let me ask you specifically, the administration appealed to the supreme court yesterday to block the deportation of 4 million immigrants after a court of appeals upheld an earlier injunction. i know you know about this case. are you for deporting those 4 million immigrants who are the parents of many legal residents here? >> this is a tough issue because you're talking about human beings and real lives. the flip side of it is you're talking about the law. this country has a right to have immigration laws and it needs to
7:08 am
enforce those laws or it doesn't have laws. no one has a right to immigrate illegally to the united states. i live this issue every day, i see it. i live in a majority immigrant community. my parents were immigrants. my wife's parents were immigrants. all my neighbors were immigrants. we have to have laws. >> understood, senator. but can i clarify your position on that? you would see the 4 million plus immigrants deported? >> we need to enforce our law. i do not support darpa. we need to begin to enforce our immigration laws in this country or we don't have immigration laws. america is entitled to have laws and to enforce them. >> senator, a lot of your superiors we supporters were giving you a way to go for your commercials during the debate where jeb bush
7:09 am
was praising you. what is your relationship like with jeb bush? >> i am close. i admire him greatly. i have tremendous respect and affection for him as a person. unfortunately over the last few weeks he's chosen to attack me. i'm not going to change my strategy and reciprocate that. i'm not going to change who i am or the campaign i'm running because of someone else's strategic decisions in their campaign. we're going to continue to run a campaign that is realistic about our challenges but also optimistic about our opportunities and our future. ultimately that is the way to win this nomination and be elected president. >> there are new questions from the miami-herald about your use of a state party credit card. they're detailing that it was used more than once. how do you explain that? >> we've explained this more than anyone cares to know. this is a small -- this is a bureau down in florida of one newspaper that's obsessed with the story. bottom line is we have revealed all the documents. people can see it all. it's there. it's not a big issue.
7:10 am
we're moving on. it really is a silly story. they can continue to write about it, but as i said, the republican party never paid any of my personal expenses. the records detail the few times there were personal expenses, we paid for them directly to american express. this was all audited by the republican party, looked at by the federal elections commission. we've addressed it and moved on. >> you said the cnbc debate was a missed opportunity. was this one? >> no, this was a substantive debate. i hope all the other ones will be like that. >> senator rubio, thank you for your time this morning. "face the nation" moderator and senior political correspondent john dickerson is at drake university in des moines where he'll moderate the cbs news democratic presidential debate on saturday. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. >> do you think this last debate moved the needle for any of the candidates? >> reporter: i don't think so. it didn't move the needle up for
7:11 am
those who needed to have it moved up, particularly jeb bush. i think if you are of the view that marco rubio and ted cruz will probably face off in the final contest, i think both of them had strong moments last night, as far as republican voters are concerned. but there was nothing that donald trump and ben carson, the two frontrunners at the moment, they didn't do anything spectacular. but their support is pretty solid. and so it will probably stay where it was before the debate. >> for those keeping track, ben carson spoke the least and only when spoken to. what does that say about what he's trying to accomplish here? >> reporter: well, he was never the most exciting or flamboyant candidate on the stage ever. and so his support and his rise comes from somewhere else. it comes from voters who take a reading of him and like him for other kinds of qualities, as opposed to donald trump, who of course has that more energetic personality. so i think for ben carson, he will continue to have that relationship with voters and kind of continue going along on his lane.
7:12 am
he's not the kind of person where we'll look to him in debates. i think the challenge for him will be, if there is ever another -- an opponent who raises the idea that basically he doesn't have it on the issues and tries to use the debate format to do that. but we haven't really seen anybody take that to him yet. >> who had the best night, do you think, john? >> reporter: i don't think anybody had a super standout night. i think ted cruz had a couple of very strong moments on immigration, defending basically the laws of america, saying anybody who thinks if you want to uphold those laws, you're anti-immigration. marco rubio and rand paul had an exchange over defense in which paul was able to energize his voters by talking about the principles of conservativism. carly fiorina had a couple of strong moments. i don't think there was a real breakout, which is one of the reasons why it feels like the race will continue along the
7:13 am
path it was on before the debate. >> john dickerson, thank you. watch john moderate the cbs news democratic presidential debate saturday night at 6 pacific time here on cbs. nine people on board a business jet died when it crashed into an apartment building yesterday. it sparked a massive fire. the plane was approaching the akron-fulton international airport at the time. don dahler joins us from the site this morning. >> reporter: good morning. the business jet crashed into this neighborhood 3:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon. it had taken off from dayton on its way to akron, a trip of about 38 minutes, when it slammed into an apartment complex down the street behind me. the medical examiner waited until daylight this morning to go into the wreckage to look for evidence as well as recover the bodies of the nine victims. >> it looks like we have a plane into a house, heavy fire. we have a lot of wires down.
7:14 am
>> reporter: the private charter flight ended in flames in this akron neighborhood. >> all of a sudden this plane just dropped out of the sky. people were not walking away from it. >> reporter: the owner of the hawker 800 jet said seven passengers and two crew members were on board. >> we haven't been able to get any answers. we've been up all night. >> reporter: she says her sister, diane smoot, was killed in the crash. >> it was the first trip she had made with the executives. she was very excited. and the tragic thing is, the plane had all the executives for the company on it. i don't know if there were any left in the office. >> reporter: the flight left the dayton wright brothers airport at 2:13 p.m., bound for akron, a 36-minute trip. the plane crashed 4 miles from the runway at the airport. >> it sounded like a bunch of ammunition going off. it kept popping. you can hear it popping. >> reporter: witnesses told
7:15 am
emergency dispatchers the plane kids telephone and electrical wires, then slammed into the apartment building. >> a plane just crashed. >> it started to turn. the wing hit a bunch of lines. it just went straight into them. >> reporter: its fuselage came to rest in an bankment behind the building. the fire burned for hours, making the initial investigation difficult. >> this is a very complex situation. and it needs to be done very carefully. and everything needs to be documented well. >> reporter: no one on the ground was hurt. this man said the building that was hit was the place his friend called home. >> he had just left his apartment to go buy groceries. by the grace of god he wasn't there. >> reporter: the cabin of the jet is largely intact although badly charred. they're hoping to locate the flight data recorder to give them some clue why this happened. this morning tens of millions of americans are in the path of severe weather. heavy snow is falling in
7:16 am
colorado. many drivers could face whiteout conditions. many in the northwest could face a wet and window day. meteorologist danielle niles of our sister station wbz is tracking it all. >> good morning, everyone. blizzard warnings are in effect. they'll be measuring the snow in feet by the time the day is done. a threat for severe weather today in a lot of the mid-west, back down to the southern planes. it's a greatest in portions of southern iowa, illinois, and missouri. damaging wind gifts and potential for tornadoes the biggest threats. >> danielle, thanks. this morning the two largest daily fantasy sports sites are fighting back after being ordered to shut down in new york state. the new york attorney general, eric schneiderman, sent both companies cease and desist orders. the companies are blasting his
7:17 am
decision. our vladimir duthiers spoke to the attorney general. vlad, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. daily fantasy sports were exempted from a 2006 law that band online gambling after claiming the contests are a game of skill. with recent accusations of insider trading, investigators and legislators are changing the rule book. >> this is the fantasy football season. this could change it all. >> reporter: it's a crackdown on daily fantasy sports, largely unregulated game play, after new york's attorney general ordered the two biggest fantasy sports companies to stop accepting bets in the state. >> daily fantasy sports, which we've been looking into over a month, we've concluded is not some new version of fantasy sports. it's really just a new version of online gambling. >> reporter: on tuesday he sent notices to draftkings and fanduel organized the online companies to cease and desist.
7:18 am
fantasy sports, the company responded, is legal under state law. draftkings called fantasy sports a game of skill. "we strongly disagree with the reasoning in his opinion and will examine and vigorously pursue all legal options." it could further implicate major sports which have investments in daily fantasy sports. major league baseball has an undisclosed stake in draftkings and the national basketball association has an undisclosed stake in fanduel. >> it could create a lot of drama going forward. it's going to cue thing up for a lot of other states that have been looking at this at the same time. >> reporter: six other states have declared that fantasy sports is gambling. but new york state has more daily fantasy players than any other. last night on twitter, both companies asked daily fantasy
7:19 am
fans to sign petitions against the order. >> there's a lot to play out right now, because, you know, this will be challenged in court. in the meantime, it's a pretty crushing blow for these companies. >> reporter: draftkings and fanduel have five days to respond to tuesday's notice, although draftkings is had they in boston, it's unclear how the order will affect fanduel, which is based here in new york, gayle. >> thank you, vlad. did a school district go way too far responding to the latest sexting scandal? students are suspended for having a video they never even asked to receive.,,

a communication professor goes after journalist at a university of missouri protest. >> you need to get out of here. do you think this is funny? could you please move, like i asked you to move minutes ago. >> ahead, the calls for that professor to be fired and the fiery debate over free speech. >> the news is back in the morning right here on "cbs this morning." right here on "cbs this

7:38 am
how? you should have told a responsible adult that something was wrong. now, when you look at the process -- >> who is going to do that? >> especially young students. >> yes. >> if you have a good strong code of conduct that is part of school. schools have codes of conduct if you see someone cheating you're supposed to tell on them. the idea is share responsibility. >> i think seeing someone cheating enters a child's mind where they know that is wrong. receiving a video and gathering around together at the lunch hour and giggling about it, i don't know if it goes through their head that it's wrong. >> but it should. maybe that is the problem. if you're getting a video of a woman or a young girl in a compromising situation, shouldn't be that alarming? >> exactly what the school says. what the school says is that to the parents, don't be angry with us, the school. you ought to be look at what is going on in your households. if you're going to prosecute a kid for something like this, then it must be knowing.
7:39 am
if you possess these selfies or other videos that are naked of children, well, then we have to know that you know what it is. it wasn't inadvertent. it wasn't unintentional. >> what about the two 14-year-old boys who sent this? what charges could they face? >> they are facing charges two of them and plus a misdemeanor. they facing a felony of promoting the sexual performance of a child and also disseminating indecent material to minors. >> do you think the kids should have been disciplined by the school? >> i think there is some degree of discipline that would be necessary if, in fact, they have shared. >> no. if they received this should they have been disciplined. >> yonts. >> should they have report it to the authorities? >> they should have reported it to the authorities. >> should they be disciplined? >> i don't think they should disciplined in the sense of discipline. they will go off to college and college says if you ever been suspended and then why?
