8:03 am
i've got food and water sitting at the port but i don't have people to drive it to the stores. i said to the governor, what are you doing? he said we're literally asking anyone, bus drivers, commercial truck drivers, anyone who can drive a truck legally, who can help us, please, come. we need you to drive food and water to parts of the island that are so desperate. you can't get to all parts of the island. the governor told us yesterday he flew over an area where people still had signs on their roof, or what was left of their home, begging for help. rescues continue seven days after hurricane maria made landfall. the man running the operation here told us they have 10,000 personnel and have delivered aid to almost every part of the island. people have come to us. people in the u.s. have come to us and said i want proof. show me it's being done. we've asked fema, will you take us there and let us get video? they said yes. they promised us a trip today. we just got a note it won't be today. it will be tomorrow. only 30% of the hospitals on the island are functioning.
8:04 am
take, for example, the one here in san juan. here is what's happening in that hospital. only one floor, the icu, that has air conditioning. only two other floors have lights and adults and children have been grouped together. if you need surgery there, people are being prioritized by who is critically ill. who sort of tops that list. the mayor of san juan said hospitals, at least here in this area, are being run by generator power. according to mayor, if they run out of power -- diesel, there's a shortage of diesel. if they run out of power they're going to run out of life. >> david begnaud, thank you. praising his administration's response to the crisis in puerto rico, saying the governor has complimented his work. >> he is so grateful for the work we're doing. it's the most difficult job. it's on an island in the middle of the ocean. you can't just drive your trucks there from other states. and the governor said we are doing a great job. he thanked me specifically for
8:05 am
fema and all the first responders in puerto rico. >> puerto rico governor ricardo rossello is with us from san juan. governor, good morning. it's been one week since the hurricane hit. your island is still 97% without power, 50% without water. are you in the midst of a humanitarian disaster? >> it could go that way, but we're making every effort to combat that. we're in communication with the president, the administration and fema. this has been quite a challenge it's a disaster of unprecedented nature. you have to consider there's two category 5 hurricanes that passed the island in two weeks. keep the help coming. we recognize that everything is being done and we are here to
8:06 am
execute so people can get food, water. >> when do you think everything will be back? >> it's hard to say. after irma, none of the transmission towers was broken. and it took us about a week and a half to start getting up to 95%, 97% power. now just flying over, i saw several dozen towers completely destroye destroyed. >> governor, the pictures are heartbreaking. so many people want to help. what specifically do you need? and what do you want people to do? >> we need resources such as generators, human resource on the security front, brigades. we need truck drivers, believe it or not, and equipment those are the immediate needs that we're going to have. if you want to give food, supplies and all of those components or even donations,
8:07 am
you can call our hotline, 202-800-3133. >> governor, we also have heard an urgent plea for help from elected officials. our own david begnaud spoke to the mayor of san juan yesterday about her frustrations. >> here is what i will say. and you can believe it. we need to get our [ bleep ] together and help needs to get into people's hands now. not tomorrow, not later. no now. >> you heard what she said. she said now. people are dying. >> we're working on every front. it is clear we're getting resources here in puerto rico. the level of the devastation, as i'm sure she understands, is unprecedented. as soon as i finish this interview i'm going to one of the isolated areas in puerto rico to take food. about 40 of our teams are all around the island, making sure
8:08 am
we get water, food, fuel. the actions are being taken. we need more help. of course, we need more help. i am convinced that seeing the response from the federal government, seeing the response from the administration and reply from congress. senator schumer, rubio, on a bipartisan effort as well as others commit their support to puerto rico so we could have immediate aid right now and, really, a mid to long-term aid so that we don't collapse into a humanitarian crisis in the united states. >> governor rossello, thank you very much. >> thank you. god bless. federal contractors are working on version of the southern border wall. one of president trump's main campaign promises. the eight prototypes are being built in a remote area of san diego, california. in effect, builders are auditioning for the full

8:10 am
work and a better future. he says their agents need more help. >> having worked for 29 years along the border, it has been a constant evolution, arresting over half a million people, illegal entrants a year. >> by the way, the wall is happening, folks, okay? >> in alabama, president trump said the new wall will be done in six to seven months. few people agree with that. what he wants aesthetically. >> you need to have a great wall but it has to be see through. and we're looking at different samples already of see-through walls. and i think also, to be honest with you, a see-through wall would look better. >> eight prototypes will be built, each between 18 and 30 feet high and stretching 30 feet long. four of them using concrete and four built with alternate materials. contractors can work 24 hours a day for 30 days to build their version of the wall. acting chief told reporters in the end the government's choice
8:11 am
may be a combination of designs. >> these prototypes will only serve -- and won't do a single thing to protect our security along the border. >> reporter: representing 60 degrees that oppose the wall. >> nothing else than political theater at the expense of taxpayers. >> reporter: the prototype will cost about $500,000 a piece. right now, the president is asking for $1.6 billion to fund the new border wall project. so far, congress has not approved that amount, much less the tens of billions of dollars it will take to put his full version along the border in place. >> thank you very much. hurricane maria victims trying to leave puerto rico criticized delta airlines how they handled the crisis. ahead, the ceo of delta will
