6:31 pm
a tornado took direct aim at may field, kentucky, and this is how randall reid saw it on the job at shelby auto moitive. >> holy mackerel! there goes that! holy shoot! oh, my goodness! >> pelley: more frightening scenes are on the way as the system heads east. manuel bojorquez is on the trail of the twisters. >> oh, looka that! look at that! >> reporter: the tornado that touched town in mayfield in western kentucky late this afternoon seemed to slice through part of town, kicking debris into the air. >> oh, my god! >> reporter: it's the same system that produced this. >> oh, no! it's hitting that farm! >> reporter: the deadly tornado that roared through garvin county, oklahoma monday. today, the national weather service said it was at least a category ef-3. that means the violent vortex that uprooted trees and flatepped homes had winds up to 165 miles per hour.
6:32 pm
daylight revealed the damage stretches for miles in parts of southern oklahoma. lisa buckner's home in winnewood was wiped off its foundation. >> everything's gone. everything. >> reporter: her 76-year-old neighbor is one of two deaths here. he did not have a storm shelter. buckner had this one built three years ago. when you had that cellar put in there, did you ever think you'd have to use it? >> no, no. not really. but it was there for security. and it saved my life. >> reporter: destruction like this has prompted oklahoma's governor to declare a state of emergency in 15 counties. scott, may is the prime month for tornadoes here, and there is a chance of severe weather again later this week. >> pelley: manuel bojorquez, thank you very much, manuel. now, we'd like you to see an important cbs news investigation into the exploitation of the most vulnerable people on earth. we've been telling you about the
6:33 pm
five million syrians on the run from their civil war, and the u.n. estimates that more than one million of them are children. they've risked death to reach turkey, but holly williams has discovered refugee children pressed into sweatshop labor for little more than 50 cents an hour. >> reporter: in a textile factory in istanbul, workers toil over sewing machines. but look closely because these workers are children. filming with a hidden camera, we found scores of factories using child labor in turkey. most, perhaps all of the children, from syria. some told us they were as young as 11, refugees from a war now easily exploited. a turkish worker on the minimum wage earns around $450 a month. a syrian child working 12 hours a day earns as little as $160.
6:34 pm
at a school for syrian children in istanbul, these boys, aged 10 to 12, are just beginning to learn to read and write because until recently, most of them were full-time workers. how many of guys have worked? wow. the school's founder, shafik suleyman, told us he offers free tuition to encourage parents to send their children back to class, but sometimes that's not enough. parents aren't earning enough money to feed their families. >> no. so they have to-- they've been forced to send their kids to work. >> reporter: out of desperation. >> yes. yes. they've got no choice. they have to send their children. >> reporter: leyla akca is a psychologist who treats syrian child refugees and their families and told us many factories prefer to hire children over their parents.
6:35 pm
>> you can overwork the children, and they're not going to be oppositional. they're not going to ask for their rights. they don't know their right so, they're just going to work like slaves, and it's easier to keep them as slaves than doing it to an adult. >> reporter: turkey has taken in around three million syrian refugees, spending billions of dollars to shelter and feed them. but while they're safe here, there's very little stable work and not much hope of building a future. that's why so many syrians have risked their lives in rickety boats to reach europe, but now the european union has promised turkey nearly $7 billion in return for its help stopping the refugees, and the crackdown has worked. for syrians, the door to europe has slammed shut, but the factories that prey on them appear to be operating with impunity, and hundreds of thousands of syrian children in turkey are growing up illiterate
6:36 pm
and powerless to change their fate. holly williams, cbs news, istanbul. >> pelley: the flight of refugees from syria led donald trump to call for a temporary ban on muslims entering the united states until, as trump put it, we find out what's going on. well, one of the world's most prominent muslims believe that's trump has no clue what's going on. here's mark phillips. ( applause ) >> reporter: sadiq khan was apparently not the sort of muslim donald trump had in mind when he announced his proposed ban. >> hello, london! >> reporter: khan has just been elected mayor of london, the first muslim mayor of a major western capital. so would he, like all other muslims, be band from the u.s. under the trump plan? not necessarily, trump told the "new york times" in an interview. "there will always be
6:37 pm
exceptions." sadiq khan has now told donald trump what to do with his exception. >> i think donald trump has ignorant views about islam. it's not just about me. i don't be the exception to be allowed to go to america. >> reporter: and he doesn't want to take lessons from donald trump on how to deal with islamic extremism, either. trump's way, khan says, is the wrong way. >> and my concern is he's playing into the hands of extremists who say it's not compatible to be western and to be mainstream muslim. i think london showed last thursday it is. >> reporter: sadiq khan was elected with the largest majority any london mayor has ever won, and this despite having to defend himself against the claim he was sympathetic to extremist views. khan said his opponents' campaign was run "right out of the donald trump playbook." normally, scott, foreign politicians stay out of american domestic politics, but sadiq khan has made an exception.
6:38 pm
in a presumed contest between donald trump and hillary clinton, khan says he hopes she thrashes him. >> pelley: mark phillips at the house of parliament tonight in london. mark, thanks. well, hillary clinton might have a chance to thrash trump if he doesn't begin winning the financial back of his party and the support of its leaders. major garrett tells us that today, trump was tormented by the ghosts of campaigns past. >> well, it is great to be back in the welcoming embrace of washington. >> reporter: senator ted cruz returned to washington today after ending his presidential bid a week ago. cruz declined to back his party's presumptive nominee. will you endorse donald trumply or do you rule that out entirely? >> there will be plenty of time for voters to make the determination who they're going to support. >> reporter: trump, whose views on trade, immigration, anderation the minimum wage bucked g.o.p. ideology, can only find lukewarm republican support on capitol hill. on thursday, trump will meet
6:39 pm
with house speaker paul ryan, who has withheld his endorsement. he'll also talk with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. do you share some of your colleagues' anxiety about what donald trump means to your party as the presumptive nominee? >> he's won the nomination the old-fashioned way. he got more votes than anybody else, and we respect the voices of the republican primary voters across the country. >> reporter: new york house republican and trump ally chris colins is trying to change minds. collins holds weekly peteings to persuade rank and file republicans trump is their ticket to victory. >> we're moving people along, some very easily, some very quickly, others, what's the message? >> reporter: do you have people who are curious and want to be persuaded or curious and still very reluctant? >> we have some of everything. >> reporter: interviews with nearly a dozen congressional republicans showed gradual, begrudging movement toward
6:40 pm
trump. scott, that evolution was driven more than anything else by survailz today show trump running neck and neck with hillary clinton in florida, ohio, and pennsylvania. >> pelley: major garrett on capitol hill. major, thank you. it's not just trump hillary clinton is running against. bernie sanders refuses to say die, and tonight, democrats are voting in west virginia. here's nancy cordes. >> now, secretary clinton says my idea is too big. >> reporter: in stockton, california, today, sanders took on clinton as if they were neck and neck. >> we have a chance to end up with a majority of the pledge delegates. >> reporter: it's a slim chance that would involve him winning an unprecedented two-thirds of the remaining pledged delegation. still, his hot streak this late in the game is bad optics for clinton. >> she's the one who's proven she can get it done. >> reporter: so today, her campaign started airing ads again in the next state up, kentucky, after pulling them to
6:41 pm
save money. >> learning how to you swaddle a baby, you know, that's an art form. >> reporter: at a daycare in lexington, kentucky, clinton laid out her plan for new federal subsidies to cap child care spending at 10% of family income. the proposal is aimed at winning over the kind of progressives who are still stuck on sanders. do you envision all these families will get these subsidies, including wealthy families. >> well, it will be a sliding scale like most programs are, but i think that a lot of the cut-rawfs too low given the costs that families are facing and given, particularly, the high cost of child care. >> reporter: clinton notes she had her own late surge in 2008 winning six of the final nine contests before conceding to president obama. his vice president, joe biden, said today for the first time, scott, that he is confident that clinton will eventually be the party's nominee. >> pelley: nancy cordes for us tonight. nance, thank you.
6:42 pm
there's an important development in a story we brought you last month. victims of lead paint poisoning had told us that they had been tricked out of millions of dollars in settlement money. well, today, maryland's attorney general sued several finance companies, and he sat down with one reporter, anna werner. >> this set of circumstances makes my blood boil. >> reporter: for maryland attorney general brian frosh, the conclusion, after a seven-month investigation, is clear: >> it looks to me like sophisticated and very aggressive folks targeting the most vulnerable people in our society, people who are poor, people who are cognitively impaired, and people who are young and unsophisticated. >> reporter: he's now suing access funding and related entities, alleging they duped at least 74 victims of lead paint poisoning in baltimore, people like crystal linton, who
6:43 pm
suffered lead poisoning as a child and was left functionally illiterate. to safeguard her future she received a $630,000 settlement. but after getting fliers from companies promising quick cash of course lynton sold her future payment stream, then valued at $408, 000, for just $66,000, some of it to access funding. do you feel like you understoo understood-- no. >> reporter: how it worked? >> no. >> reporter: so you don't know how you signed away your money essentially? >> no. >> reporter: just like that, her money was gone. >> it hurts. >> it was exploitation in its worst form. >> reporter: the attorney general says $17 million in payments to victims vanished. now, through the lawsuit, he's trying to get their money back. what would you say to people who say, "hey, you know, what? these people are adults. they made their own decisions to sell these settlements so that's
6:44 pm
life." >> sadly, that may end up being the case for many of these people. >> reporter: attorney earl nesbitt is with the national association of settlement purchasers and represents some of those companies in court. >> it's very unfortunate what happened in maryland, but it would be, i think, a mistake for anyone to judge the entire industry or every transaction about what happened in an isolated place involving a particular funding company. >> reporter: do you trust when the industry says, "well, it's only in maryland." >> i would be astonished if it were only happening here. >> reporter: we reached out to principals from access funding but have not heard back tonight. but in previous court filings, the company called the attorney general's allegations incorrect and scurrilous. the company says it made disclosures and these were voluntary sales, all approved by the courts. and, scott, the company claims it actually lost money in its two years of transactions. >> pelley: anna werner with
6:45 pm
the exclusive. anna, thanks very much. still ahead, breaking news tonight in the death of prince. and. >> now, let me ask you this, where's the weed at? >> pelley: do deadly crashes rise where weed is legal? when the the cbs evening news continues. kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a
