welcome to the memorial day weekend. elaine quijano in and a great lineup this morning. when it comes to movies, the idea of a "tomb raider" seems thrilling. in real life, it's having a profound effect on our archaeological heritage. why the problem may start here in america. we're also going to take you to cal navari, nevada, a small town for sale not far from the vegas strip. meet the remarkable woman who's run the town for a half century and show the one thing the new owner will not be allowed to change. and they range from professional-level athletes to the occasional fisherman. the best and worst presidents when it comes to athletics. that's ahead. first, our top story. new violence as donald trump brings his strict immigration policy to mexico's doorstep.
5:04 am
the presumptive presidential nominee campaigned in san diego friday, the busiest border crossing between the u.s. and mexico. outside the convention center where he spoke was one of the largest protests organized against him. about three dozen people were arrested when anti-trump demonstrators clashed with trump supporters and police. here's carter evans. >> reporter: hundreds of protesters marched in the street near san diego's convention center. >> donald trump has got to go! >> reporter: it began as a peaceful demonstration that included immigrant groups who disapprove of trump's tactics and rhetoric. >> going to build a wall! >> reporter: skirmishes erupted outside. police brought out batons when protesters tried to climb into a secure area where officers were monitoring the situation. at least one was arrested. that led protesters to throw water bottles at the officers. when the rally ended, the
5:05 am
racially diverse crowd began exchanging angry words. >> go back to mexico! >> reporter: emotions boiled over, then things became physical. >> my friend was attacked by this guy. i pulled one guy off. the next comes in. somebody socks me right here. is my nose broken? >> reporter: in california last month, anti-trump protesters burned an american flag and an effigy of the candidate. sentiments continue to flare due in part to a large hispanic population. on friday in san diego, protesters staged a sit -in. >> i don't agree with what the candidate donald trump has put out there. like the fact that he's using racism, discrimination. >> reporter: as the rally begins to wrap up, you see police in riot gear closing in on the crowd. they've told everyone that this is an unlawful assembly. everybody who remains here is here illegally and subject to
5:06 am
arrest. police moved in to disperse the crowd. inside, trump continued his fight to take california despite claims that a republican can't win the state. >> honestly, folks, we have leadership in this country especially at the top that is grossly incompetent. they don't know what the hell they're doing. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning saturday," carter evans, san diego. during an appearance in fresno earlier in the day, trump waded into one of california's biggest problems, its historic drought. in a private meeting with corporate farmers, trump said, "there is no drought." and that he can fix the state's chronic water problems that pits rural water districts and well-off farmers against environmental laws. he elaborated on the point at a campaign rally. >> i've heard this from other friends in california where they have farms up here, and they don't get water. i said, that's too bad. is it a drought? no, we have plenty of water.
5:07 am
what's wrong? we shove it out to sea. and i said, why? and nobody even knows why. and the environmentalists don't know why. they're trying to protect a certain kind of three-inch fish. >> trump was referring to the delta smelt, a native california fish that's on the brink of extinction. a debate showdown between bernie sanders and donald trump appears to be off the table. sanders is trailing hillary clinton in the race for the democratic nomination. he says he would still like to take on trump. >> trump is a bully, a big, tough guy. what are you afraid? >> trump initially said he would debate sanders to raise money for charity but that no tv networks were ponying up. the sanders campaign said it received two offers from television networks. for more on campaign 2016,
5:08 am
we've joined by a senior reporter for politico new york. thanks for being here, good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> donald trump has enough delegates now to clinch the gop nomination. do you think now there's going to be more pressure on republicans to fall behind him? for instance, speaker of the house paul ryan? >> paul ryan has made gestures to show that he's falling in line with him. whether it's a formal endorsement is another question. trump got here not by playing an inside game with party leaders and amassing delegates. he won this by going to the public and having a broad campaign. whether or not anyone formally endorses him, the question will be is anyone strong enough to stand up and actively articulate a reason to support him? that doesn't seem what paul ryan wants to do. >> now that trump has enough delegates, he's going to focus on states like new york and california which -- which haven't gone republican in more than 30 years. are these -- because of his
5:09 am
unconventional candidacy, are the states in play this time? >> in some ways, you can't rule it out. like you could look at the numbers, but what trump is doing is playing a psychological game with the clinton campaign by saying he's going to campaign. they have to decide whether or not to spend resources and make sure it doesn't happen. if you spend resources in new york and california, you have a harder time spending that money in the -- places like florida that you need to win. >> you have to take it from somewhere. >> let's talk about hillary clinton. that inspector general's report was critical. how do you think it will affect her campaign? >> the worst scandals are the wonz that reinforce -- ones that reinforce a negative stump stoo type. if you listen to donald trump, hillary clinton doesn't play by the same rules as everyone else, is a liar. here's an obama administration official saying, no, we did not give you authorization to do this. it feeds into the narrative. if she's going to avoid reporters and stop sort of
5:10 am
articulating a case against trump and being on the defensive, that's harder to convince voters that she's going to need in november. >> does she need closure in some way for her candidacy to thrive? >> it's going to be hard to imagine her making the case to voters if there are more legitimate voices throughout saying we never gave authorization to do this, and the statements that you said in past are not accurate. >> let's talk about upcoming primaries. what would it mean for bernie sanders' campaign if he were to win california? how would it play into the convention? >> this is shocking that it's the democrats that might have a more contested convention than republicans. nobody would have predicted this a couple weeks ago even. this is going to put her -- to put more pressure on sanders to support the party. if donald trump is gaining more support, if his allies and party are coalescing around him, how come democrats aren't? bernie sanders will face a tough
5:11 am
decision about what he's going to do. either put his candidacy first or the party first. >> if clinton loses california, that gives -- does that finally give sanders a case with superdelegates as he's been saying for ages? >> it's not going change the math in a significant enough way. he'll have to articulate why it's better for the party than for him. they're giving him a spot to help shape the platform, but is it going to change what dlots wi-- what delegates do? probably not. they have to give him something to help convince clinton in november. >> thank you very much for being with us. >> thank you. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" on cbs, john dickerson's guests will include senator bernie sanders. the memorial day weekend is expected to be a washout for millions of americans. the year's first tropical storm warning is posted along the south carolina coast. the rain hasn't started yet, but beachgoers near charleston experienced high winds and dangerous, rough surf on friday. and another day of heavy rain is
5:12 am
expected across parts of the plains. last night, a suspected tornado touched down in central wisconsin, knocking down trees and knocking out power in the town of bramden. the worst damage from the severe weather is in texas where at least one person was killed and three more are still missing. don champion is there. >> reporter: for the last 24 hours, rescue choppers have been plucking desperate people off rooftops of homes and submerged cars in several texas towns. near austin, there have been at least 75 people rescued. in brenham, rain poured down in buckets. more than 18 inches in a day's time. quickly rising water washed out roads and washed cars away. 21-year-old darin mitchell posted this haunting photo as water topped the roof of his truck. he wrote, "all i wanted to do was go home." a short while later, he disappeared.
5:13 am
after fields flooded in chapel hill, ranchers tried to save cattle by herding them toward the shore. homeowners only now just beginning to soak in the damage of flooded homes and fallen trees and branches. >> super scary. you don't know what to do. >> reporter: this entire neighborhood was cut off. the second nightmare a year. what are you -- second time in a year. what are you going do? >> i'm probably going to have move, and i don't want to move. for the latest on the severe storms and the tropical storm warning we go to meteorologist ed curran of chicago station wbb mtv. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we'll start with the tropical depression that we have. here it is, 250 miles southeast of charleston, south carolina. 35 mile-per-hour winds makes it just a few miles per hour shy of being a tropical storm. and we have the tropical storm warnings that are up here along the coast of south carolina. now we look at where we have a chance for severe weather.
5:14 am
a marginal chance from northern wisconsin all the way down to texas, damaging wind, hail, and especially to the north, the chance to see an isolated tornado or two as we go through the day. and now we look to indianapolis. tomorrow, the 100th running of the indianapolis 500. an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms as we move through the race tomorrow. warm temperatures around the nation today. 98 in phoenix. 90 degrees in new york. 90 degrees in orlando. elaine? >> all right. meteorologist ed curran of w wbbm-tv. more than a million and a half people will be flying this holiday weekend. new efforts are being made to get passengers through security as quickly as possible. kris van cleave is at dulles airport outside washington. >> reporter: good morning. the tsa said screeners found a
5:15 am
record 74 firearms at checkpoints across the country last week. the agency says 90% of flyers spend 30 minutes or less in the screening lines. this weekend, the lines could be longer. bring on the summer rush and fears of historically long gridlocked secured lines at airports across the country. already this year, american airlines says more than 70,000 people and over 40,000 checked bags have missed flights because of screening delays. >> the lines were long. we couldn't find the start of the line anywhere. definitely nerve-racking. >> reporter: at chicago o'hare, the second busiest airport in the country this weekend, lines were long but moving. a change from a couple weeks ago when more than 100 ended up sleeping on cots, stranded because of seemingly stagnant tsa lines. >> i got here at 3:00 in the morning. my flight is at 7:00. >> reporter: those who got to the buffalo airport early friday found the line to get into the
5:16 am
line for security stretched through the terminal. the memorial day weekend jumpstart a seasonal surge of more than 231 million americans that are expected to fliempt an -- to fly. 95,500 over last year. it comes as the tsa is struggling with a staffing shortage. >> we'll keep passengers moving this weekend. we're also going to keep them safe. >> reporter: secretary of homeland security jeh johnson on >> in the last several weeks we've converted a lot of part time to full time. we are authorized by dong pay additional overtime to deal with the increased travel volume. >> reporter: the tsa's in the process of adding nearly 800 more officers, redeploying screeners and k-9 teams to busy airports, all in an effort to keep up with the summer rush. anthony? >> kris van cleave. thanks. this morning, investigators are trying to determine why a

5:18 am
implications for public health. the findings will likely launch a new debate over whether cell phones cause cancer. dr. thomas brewly of the american cancer society -- >> it is game changing in that it's the first time that we have evidence that the radio waves from a cell phone can cause cancers. >> reporter: the fda says the majority of studies so far have not link eed cell phones with health problems. the head at duke university -- >> this is an incomplete presentation of information. when you do that, you raise far more questions about the validity of the results. >> reporter: it's worth noting the incidence of brain cancer has not increased in recent years despite the rapid increase in cell phone use. if you're concerned about potential risk, experts say you can keep the phone away from your head by using a bluetooth or headphones. for "cbs this morning saturday,"

5:27 am
the question is how successful? what he says or what the financial institutions say? >> the success is in properties that he owns and cash he has. he had $557 million in income last year. by any standards that counts as success. $557 million. he just filed last week the largest personal financial disclosure statement in the history of our country, outlining what those assets are. here's the problem with the statements -- here's the problem -- when you look at trump tower, a massive building here in new york, the option is to say it's worth more than $50 million. that's the highest category there is. if you look at the building across the street, it sold for $1.8 billion. he can't say that that's worth $2 billion or more which it is, it says $50 million. that's not a true accounting. >> you know this, one way to determine your wealth is to
5:28 am
release your tax returns. >> your taxes -- tax returns on a yearly basis don't tell you what you're worth. they show your income. mr. trump showed what his income is. $557 million last year. he has a massive cash flow. very little debt. less than 2% or 3% of his overall net worth. he's worth $10 billion. look at the properties he owns, doral in florida, new york -- >> the question is this -- your tax returns show what you pay in taxes. it shows what you do in -- what you make this charitable contributions -- >> as a businessman to his family, to his corporation, he is going to pay the smallest amount of taxes possible which i think the american people also understand. every deduction possible, he fights for every dollar. that's the mindset you want to bring to the government. >> no one be grudges that. it's not the question. the question is, is transparency oh a man who is one of the two people most likely to become president. ,,,,,,,,

nothing on the highway says american more than the muscle car. going all the way back to the original ford mustang of 1964. sporty vehicles with powerful engines have been favorites on and off the race track. >> muscle cars are more sophisticated these days, but they're still meant to go fast. what happens when things go wrong? new crash tests provide some answers. here's kris van cleave. >> reporter: they are american icons. symbols of freedom and the open roads. >> the need for speed. >> reporter: muscle cars like deangelo smith's dodge challenger. what is it about the muscle car? >> live the sound of the roar you get when you're driving it. when you ride inside or it's
5:31 am
riding past you, it's something you'll always notice. >> mustang. >> reporter: for decades, they begged drivers to go fast. now we're seeing how dangerous that can be. none of the cars received the national highway safety's highest ranking. >> we haven't tested them before because we haven't thought that the population is necessarily interested in safety. they should be. >> reporter: ford mustang scored a good rate thanks to optional avoidance technology, when tested at the front end hitting a simulated pole at 50 miles per hour. the chevy lacks crash avoidance technology and struggled some on roof strength, key to preventing injuries in a rollover crash. the dodge challenger managed only an acceptable score, earning lower marks for roof strength and its performance in the small overlap crash test. in the crash, the dash pushed back, trapping the test dummy.
5:32 am
>> the damage in the foot well was so bad that the dummy's foot had to be unbolted from the leg. this would have been serious leg injuries for a real person. >> reporter: ford calls this its safest mustang ever, pointing out to received five stars in the government tests. chevy and dodge did not comment on the iihs report. kris van cleave, cbs news, washington. >> still love those cars. those are concerning results there. >> yeah. it's important to have that information because of the high rates of speed for those vehicles. important. drone pilots take notice. a new sheriff is taking flight to keep unwanted aircraft out of the skies. we'll show you the plan to use eagles to take out potentially dangerous drones. >> first, here's a look at the weather for your weekend.

5:36 am
time for "morning rounds" with chief medical correspondent jon lapook and cbs news contributor dr. holly phillips. first, a new study uncovers an alarming trend in colon cancer rates. a new study finds the number of colon cancer cases in people under 50 rose by more than 11% over a decade. for people over 50, the number
5:37 am
of cases dropped by 2.5%. >> this comes as a recent report helped answer a question that troubled oncologists. why some with colon cancer survive longer than others. >> reporter: two years ago at age 48, lisa glasgow had surgery for what was thought to be an early stage colon cancer. >> it had spread across my body. so at that point they staged it stage-four colon cancer, not in the terminal sense, but in the f facfact it moved. >> reporter: later it returned prompting another round. >> today's the halfway through mark. the side effects are hitting me harder than last year. >> reporter: her cancer started on the right side of the colon, more deadly. the study of patients with advanced colon cancer found those with tumors on the right side survived an average of 19 months compared to 33 for those with tumors on the left side. dr. richard goldberg is an
5:38 am
oncologist with the ohio state university comprehensive cancer center and co-author of the study. >> this data shows that we ought to think differently about patients depending on where their cancer arose. >> reporter: patients with cancer on the right side tend to have fewer early symptoms and are often diagnosed later. one reason -- benign right-sided polyps can be harder to spot during a colonoscopy. many are obvious like this that looks like a mushroom. polyps on the right tend to be flat, increasing the odds of being missed and eventually turning it to cancer. >> when i go to clinic, i'll be thinking rights side, left side. different treatment. >> what does this mean for treatment ultimately? >> that different treatment he was talking about was the suggestion in this study that it's possible that certain types of chemotherapy work better on the right side of the colon, if you have cancer this, than the left side. and that we'll need more studies. i think for people at home, the take-home message is we talked about that right side of the
5:39 am
colon. that's where the polyps tend to be flat and much more difficult to see. and more deadly potentially. so if you're at home and you're about to get a colonoscopy and they want you to do the prep, nobody wants to do it and everybody complains, but you have to do the prep. here's the thing -- i'm a gastroenterologist. when you look, if there's debris, it can cover the subtle, flats polyps. to help yourself, do the prep. it beats chemo. moving on, a deadly week on mt. everest put a spotlight on eye condition familiar to mean when -- on a condition familiar to many in the high altitude states, altitude sickness. what is it? >> altitude sickness is a term that refers to a whole constellation of symptoms that happen when we go from low altitudes to high altitudes quickly. at higher altitudes, there's lower air pressure. and ultimately, that makes your body have to function with less oxygen temporarily until the
5:40 am
body acligets used to it. it can cause nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, sleep difficulty, and in severe cases, fluid can build up in the brain and lungs. >> what's behind the more severe cases? >> when you're talking about going to 17,000, 18,000 feet like at the base camp, going to 19,000 at the summit of everest, you're talking about a whole different story. it's interesting in terms of the moon of oxygen in the blood. it's 21% in the atmosphere at sea level. when you go up to mt. everest, it's still 21% oxygen in the atmosphere. what's different is the barometric pressure. could be like half of normal at the base camp. that means barometric pressure, think about it as the force to drives the oxygen from the outside from your lungs to the blood stream, heart, brain, and rest of the body. what happens when you get up really shy there's less of a -- really high is there's less of a
5:41 am
force driving oxygen into your system. when the barometric pressure drops, that means a storm is coming. if there's a storm, the barometric pressure could drop further. and changes that happen suddenly on top of the mountain can make a difference between life and death for these climbers. >> holly, most of us are not kalamazooer, but a lot of people could be traveling to high-altitude areas s. there a way to prevent altitude sickness? >> there are techniques. it's ideal to go up slowly. 1,000 feet at a time. there are some medications, acedamolizide make you breathe faster so you're taking in more oxygen, staying hydrated is important. one of the things that i think is unique about altitude sickness is not only is it a little bit hard to prevent, but it's hard to predict who will get it and when. a couple of months ago, i went with my family. we went to colorado. from here in new york city which is just above sea level, right, we're at 33 feet above sea level, we went up to 7,000 feet
5:42 am
in colorado. i got sick. my older daughter got sick. my husband and younger daughter were fine. we were drinking water, trying to do what we could. sometimes it's the roll of the dice. >> it's interesting. different genes get turned on and off when people get used to height. there's a study, dr. robert roche in colorado is doing a study on this. that could help explain why some people who are able to do fine at altitude and others can't. >> my husband and younger daughter have the magic genes then. >> all right. finally, complain all you want about your busy schedule. according to one study, it might be helping your brain. researchers tested more than 300 people aged 50 to 89 on cognitive functions including memory, reasoning, and mental quickness. they also asked them how busy they were. and according to the researchers, the busier they were, the higher they scored.
5:43 am
>> i mean, this to me goes along with so much of what neurolog t neurologists have said for a while. try to as we age do mind games. memory things, crossword puzzles, whatever you can to keep the mind stimulated. now it seems just being busy may is the same effect. >> you don't want to be a busy body, but you want to have a body that's busy. >> very good. i like that. i'll write that down. all right. with that, thank you both. doctors jon lapook and holly phillips. next, drones can be intrusive or dangerous. watch out when an eagle-eyed master of flight is on patrol. it has claws. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." isn't this fun, living like the pioneers of olden times? i hate the outside. well, i hate it wherever you are. burn.
