7:04 am
the most controversial was signed last night. the order suspends all refugees from entering the u.s. while the administration tightens the screening process for refugees, especially those from muslim countries. >> the aim is to limit the rise of islamic extremism, but it's spreading widespread outrage. minority leader chuck schumer tweeted last night there are tears running down the cheeks of the statue of liberty tonight. errol barnett is in washington with our story. good morning. >> good morning. in response to president trump's latest executive action, the u.s. refugee agency issued a joint statement calling for equal treatment of immigrants regardless of nationality. while mr. trump's move may be alarming to many, he is fulfilling a key campaign promise. in his first visit to the
7:05 am
pentagon as commander in chief, president trump announced and signed two executive actions. >> we want to ensure that we're not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. >> one action will suspend immigration from specific countries to prevent the entrance of islamic terrorists and implement what he calls extreme vetting of immigrants. >> i'm establishing new vetting, measures to keep radical islamic terrorists out of the united states of america. i don't want them here. >> the order puts a 120-day hold on all refugees settling in the u.s. and a 90-day hold on entry of visitors from countries of concern like iraq and syria and blocks all syrian refugees indefinitely. in a television interstru, president trump said he'll prioritize, quote, persecuted christians. >> they've been horribly treated. if you were a christian in
7:06 am
syria, it was impossible, at least very, very tough to get into the united states. if you were a muslim, you could come in. >> earlier at the white house president trump hosted his first foreign leader, british prime minister theresa may. >> i think the prime minister, first of all, has other things that she's much more worried about than mexico and the united states relationship. >> in a joint press conference mr. trump was asked about his hour-long phone call with mexican president enrique pena nieto. >> it was a very, very friendly call. >> the two have been publicly feuding ore who will pay for the proposed wall along the u.s./mexico border. >> we're going to renegotiate our trade deals and renegotiate other aspects of our relationship with mexico. in the end i think it will be good for both countries. >> the president was also asked about his apparent desire to develop a close relationship with russian president vladimir putin. >> putin and russia, i don't say good, bad, or indifferent. i don't know the gentleman.
7:07 am
i hope we have a fantastic relationship. >> pressed about keeping ining sanctions with russia, he hasn't talked about it. >> we'll look at ideas with the country that won't necessarily happen. >> later today president trump will have a phone call with president putin for the first time since election night. he'll also speak with leaders from japan, france, germany, and australia before signing more executive orders, the context of which is still unknown. alex. >> errol barnett in washington. thank you. for more we're joined by "washington post" national correspondent philip bump. good morning. >> good morning. >> the president issued a flurry of executive orders. not necessarily consulting with the cabinet. how enforceful are these? >> setting aside whether he
7:08 am
talked to the cabinet officials, whether he talked to legal. they're essentially preece press releases. some like this ban on immigration probably run against existing law and it's not clear whether the homework was done to see whether this is something that can actually be put into force. >> is this essentially a muslim ban? >> it's clearly a crackdown on scary countries. >> what he says are scary countries. >> exactly. in quotes. this is an attempt to fulfill the promise to his base that he was going to keep people from places that make people nervous coming into the united states. again, it's not clear whether this can be enforced. the united states used to have a policy on immigration. it was overturned in 19et 5. it's not clear whether it will
7:09 am
withstand the supreme court. none of the countries that the hijackers were from are on the list of banned countries. he had comments about president putin. good, barksd he's indifferent. he'll take a call from him with mike pence there. what will we hear? >> it will be interesting if we hear anything back from the call. one of the things under consideration is whether or not he'll roll back sanctions. trump has said -- his team has said essentially they want to reach a deal where they roll back sanctions and cut back. they're working with them in the islamic state. it's pretty clear putin would rather be having this call with trump than barack obama. >> this is one place he's getting resistance within his own party though. >> that's exactly right. there's not a lot of places
7:10 am
where they're butting heads. >> what about obamacare. we have reports in the post and the times that there's real fractious debate inside the republican party about what's going to happen if they repeal the law. >> i think the classic phrase is -- they always wanted to repeal obamacare. it's a great talking point. but now you have a lot of people who are very sick and need good coverage. how do you provide it for them while making it affordable to everyone el. it's not clear there's an easy answer. it's easy to say but they've had trouble figuring out what that answer might be. >> as we saw, the president had a face-to-face meeting with the british prime minister. what came out of that meeting? >> not a whole lot, which is good for president trump. the bar is very low when it comes to diplomatic interactions. the fact that there was not a blowup means it's as good as it could have gone. meanwhile mexican president,
7:11 am
enrique pena nieto, it's been a rocky week. are we going to be in a trade war with mexico? >> it's possible. i don't think anyone thinks there's much leverage assuming wall gets built. but nafta is a bigger deal. there's a lot of political support to renegotiate nafta but i don't know that this bluster is going to get the job done. united states is an economic power. >> all right. philip bump, thanks very much. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" john dickerson's guests will include john mccain, arizona senn nor and also keith ellison. a large crowd from across the country filled the streets in washington for the annual march for life. it's the largest anti-abortion demonstration. jan crawford has more on the march and how it will loom over president trump's nomination to the u.s. supreme court. >> reporter: for the 44th year

7:13 am
trump's short list of three. >> you said on several occasions roe v. wade is the worst abomination in history of constitutional law. a, do you believe that as of right now? >> i do. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news pryor's nomination is unlikely after senate republicans warned about a possible repeat of his 203 appeals court battle. >> i believe that not only is the case unsupported by the text and structure of the constitution, but it has led to a morally wrong result. >> reporter: supreme court advocate jay sekulow. >> if you stake out a pro-life position -- >> reporter: pennsylvania's thomas hardiman who has been less forthcoming about his

7:38 am
screenings? >> they should know it can save their life, first sand foremost? because we can pick up cancer at an early stage and treat them, pick up precancerous or abnormal cells and treat them. the death rate has gone down 50% primarily from the pap smear, so the recommendations are starting at age 21. women should begin getting pap smears every three years. above 29 from 30 and above to 65, they should start getting pap smears and the hpv test every five years or pap smears every three years and most women can end screening around age 65. there's no screening for anal cancer or another caused by hpv. even if they get the vaccine, they still need to get tests because it doesn't protect against all forms. >> that's an important note. what should people know here? >> tara kind of implied it. they should know cervical cancer
7:39 am
is caused by a virus, the hpv virus. there's a vaccine against it. recommended for both boys and girls, males and fee mals. yes, males can get it. not only can they spread it to women, but they can get it in the anal region, the tongue, tonsils, back of the throat. it's recommended for both boys and girls starting at age 11 or 12. you may say, wait, why so young, they're not sexually active, but it's most ee februaryive when given at that young age. it can be given as early as age 9. >> wow. interesting. up next, baby monitors that can track the vital signs of infants. the sensors can be hooked onto clothing such as socks and send health information straight to a parent's smartphone. however, a report published this week in the journal of medical association raised serious questions about their effective bs. tara takes a look. >> 7-month-old jordan sell spent

7:42 am
able to avoid regulation in that way, but yet they make claims like we can help make sure your baby is still breathing which plays into parents' fears and anxiety. the doctors we spoke to ahave been very clear. there's skin breakdown from things too tight. we don't know about the indirect harm. how many of these are going to lead parents to go to the hospital and get their babies tested with blood tests and admitted. the fears and worries it brings up in parents. and then what if they don't practice safe sids techniques that work because they're falsely monitored. >> that sounds dangerous. smart devices aren't going anywhere so how do we get to the point where doctors and nurses are actively discussing this stuff? >> i think we do need more. you don't jump into a technology because it's available. you talk about infants and babies. did we ask for this, by the way? >> we got it though, didn't we?
7:43 am
we sure got it. >> all right. doctors jon lapook and tara narula. thank you very much. up next, is it a credible claim. president trump said voter fraud kept him from beating hillary clinton in the popular vote, but with no elected state officials backing the charge, is the investigation warranted and where would it lead? you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

but no evidence of fraud. >> and some of those folks who have double registrations may be in the trump white house. >> yes. there have been some news reports of that. >> professor, president trump tweeted about a new study showing 3 million votes cast illegally on friday. what do we know about that report? >> we know nothing about that report actually, what the data is, where the evidence is, what states it may have occurred in, what do we mean by illegal voting. the authors of that study have pretty much kept it close to the vest and said we have a study and here's what it shows but normally when you have a study. you produce the study and you share with other people to give them a chance to poke holes in it. that's the way knowledge advances. people come back and say this makes sense, this doesn't. they're not doing anything like that with that so-called study. >> what would an investigation into voter fraud look like? >> it's hard to say. there actually have been investigations into voter fraud, quite a number on the bush administration was very concerned about this in the time
7:49 am
of the 2004 election. they tasked a number of their u.s. attorneys to bring a specialty focus on this. they weren't able to find any cases. and indeed the criminal division of the justice department which looks for this over a ten-year period between 2004 and 2014, they didn't find any. the kind of things they found, it covers a lot of ground. it generally means somebody's showing up at the polling place and saying i'm somebody who -- i'm falsely claiming to be somebody who's actually registered there. there's almost no evidence that that ever happens. it's hard to pull off a major fraud that way. it's too obvious. sometimes individuals make mistakes and they think they're registered and it turns out they're not. sometimes the administrators make a mistake. you register under your full name and sign up with your nickname or leave out a middle initial and that it's not the same person. >> 31 states have voter i.d.
7:50 am
laws. are we headed to a national policy on voter i.d. laws and what are the implications of that? >> that might be one thing the administration is pushing for. the photo i.d.s. many need to prove in some sense to prove who they are and live in the district of where they're voting. you can satisfy that sometimes with a signature match, with a rent or utility bill. the more stringent rule is to have some government-issued photo i.d. that was a fairly uncommon requirement about ten years ago. it's primarily in states with republican governments. >> the problem is there are a lot of people who don't have i.d.s or a driver's license. thanks for being with us this morning. >> my pleasure. going back to the future more than six weeks after it was published, george orwell's novel "1984" is sighing a surge in

welcome to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> and i'm alex wagner. coming up this hour good americans save a life as they help a man in a horrible wreck. see how they work together to prevent tragedy. today is lunar new year. the countdown is under way with a television show that's describe as the biggest show on earth. and see how a chain of novelty stores is trying to turn students into novelists. it's changing the way thousands look at education. but first our top story this hour, president donald trump has issued a series of executive actions this week. on friday he signed his 15th executive order that temporarily bans refugees from certain
8:01 am
muslim majority countries. the executive order puts a four-month hold on all refugees settling in the u.s. it halts for 90 days the entry for visitors from countries of concern such as iraq and syria. it also blocks all syrian refugees in definitely. >> mr. trump said the idea is to limit the rise of so-called islamic extremism, but the order has outraged groups ranging from humanitarian organizations to democratic members of congress. minority leader senator chuck schumer tweeted last night there are tears running down the cheeks of the statue of liberty tonight. we're joined by the ceo of an internationgtional refugee comm.
8:02 am
his op-ed piece criticizing president's order appears this this morning's "new york times." good morning. >> good morning, alex. >>ing that have paymented a menacing picture. your organization knows and works with these folks whochl are they? >> half the refugees arriving in the united states are under the age of 14, so a lot of them are kids. many of them are coming from war-torn areas. we work in syria, in somalia, in some of -- in afghanistan where many people are local and are supporting american troops and have been and have a right to come to the u.s. we work abroad with those people, but we also work in 29 u.s. cities where the u.s. almost has a historic commitment to be a haven for people flee g fleeing. they come here for political reasons or cuba is a very good example. we've settled ourselves about 60,000 cubans over the last 50
8:03 am
years. so refugees are fleeing persecution. they're not seeking a better economic life but save their own lives. >> david, you write there's a myth for saving refugees. what do they have to go through? >> that's the only point. i can explain the actual truth of the situation. it takes up to 36 months for a refugee to get through the vetting process. the average is around 18 months. they have to prove to 12 or 15 different agencies including cia, that they say who they say they are, they're going to be safe and productive citizens in this country. ice a tough process including biometric testing and the onus is on the refugee to say who they are. it's tougher to get to the u.s. as a refugee versus any o'route. >> that is critical information. one of the provisions in this consecutive order gives preference to religious minorities. do we not -- do we not accept a
8:04 am
fairly equal share of muslims and christians, for example, whamd does a religious test actually mean? >> that's a very good point. 45% are christians, 45% are muslims, so it's more or less 1-1. the grounds could be religious persecution. it could be political persecution. many are thinking if i'm political persecution, why should it be less. i met an iranian, he was a christian from iran. the majority of iranians who resettle here are christians. yeah. >> david, we're cutting basically from the 110,000 to 50,000. what's going to happen to those 60,000 people? >> 60,000 people are in limbo now. some are literally waiting to
8:05 am
get on plains. they've been through the process. they're told what part of the u.s. are you going to be left in. one of the saddest things is obviously the immediate situation where they're stuck in refugee camps or terrible urban conditions around the world. but there's also a bigger point here. america's historically been a lead over the humanitarian system. both in terms of its welcoming of refugees and in terms of its overseas age. now that's lower than some european countries and there's another important point. the propaganda gift is the people who would do damage. there's nothing isis wants more than to be able to say to muslims around the world, look, we're the people who protect you. america will never give you haven. that's one of the most dangerous things. >> it's a shocking message to send around the world. david miliband. thank you. on friday president trump welcomed the first foreign leader.
