him down. >> reporter: and ford was dazed but responsive when first responders got to him right after the plane crash. some witnesses say it's amazing ford didn't land in a more populated area we're on the edge of the golf course now but there are houses answers ss and people all around us from where ford crashed. he actually saved lives by having the aviation intelligence to land in an unpopulated area relatively unpopulated like a golf course fairway rather than on a street. >> from venice california. thanks. great seeing you. to the east coast, skidding off the runway at laguardia airport, a delta plane. 24 people suffered minor injuries. one of the passengers onboard spoke on the "today" show this morning. >> there's that moment where you don't know what you're going to hit. what's going to slow us down? will it be another plane? will it be the airport? you have no idea. and then i saw the rocks, and then i saw the water, and it's at that moment your mind goes
what happens if you go into the water? do planes sink? do they float? will i ever see my kids again. >> nbc's sarah dallof live at laguardia airport. what are the latest events this morning? >> reporter: officials looking a the a number of factors including weather. it was snowing at the time of the incident but the runway was just plowed and the pilots previously to land on the runway prior reported good braking conditions. that plane, you mentioned, was taken by crane to a hangar here at laguardia. it's going to be examined by the ntsb who will document all of the damage. meanwhile, operations are under way to get the airport back to normal, to reopen that runway. get traffic going smoothly. again, crews making repairs to that fence and that berm.

and developing this morning it may be frigid outside but the job market is heating up. look at these new numbers released just within the last hour. the labor department says nearly 300,000 jobs were added last month. more than expected and the unemployment rate edged down to 5.5%. here to break it down is cnbc's hampton pearson who joins us from the labor department in washington, d.c. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. both of those headline numbers, jose are real upside surprise. the expectation was for just 240,000 jobs. talk about a 5.5% unemployment rate you're kind of at the upper end of what the federal reserve considers to be full employment. a lot of that job growth was in
the private sector. 288,000 overall again, above consensus forecast. across the board. we saw professional business services leading the way. generally good paying jobs followed by retail and even construction adding about 29,000 jobs, despite the weather. and the expectation was, frankly, weather and layoffs in the energy industry due to those falling oil price was going to be drags on the employment report. so very strong report. when you look at the breakdown of that 5.5% unemployment rate the black unemployment rate 10.4 percent. hispanics 6.6%. asians, 4.0% about the same. no real change there. the final missing piece, however in all of this jose still no real signs of wage growth. up just 2% year over year. >> cnbc thank you my friend. good to see you. much more on the jobs report
from president obama"abrams & bettes beyond the forecast" -- president obama's top economist in about han houran hour. and hillary clinton, storing sensitive information even if it wasn't classified on her private server. no such provision against routine use for government work as long as e-mails are preserved. adds the department won't know for sure if rules were broken until they review all 55,000 e-mails. a traffic tank expected to take months the task. and tomorrow clinton speaks here in miami. meantime, clinton's potential republican rivals are preparing for a big summit in iowa. with me here as he is most fridays, political director and moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. >> good morning, jose. >> and talk about the hillary clinton controversy. will we still be talking about it six months to a year from now?
>> i think we are, one simple reason. congress' republicans in the majority and have subpoena power feel as if they're investigations into her, into benghazi which led to the public disclosure of his private e-mail system that the secretary built, they feel empowered and feel it legitimizes the investigation. what does that mean? it's not going away anytime soon, and if anything, could get expanded, and that alone will be a lingering legacy of this story that will hang around 6 months 12 months 15 months from now and at any moment could be a ticking press time bomb and at minimum, some leak or disclosure from one of these investigations will lead to some sort of one to three-day press distraction or worse, even if you want to call it a fishing expectations. in some they actually catch fish. >> so chuck, to be clear what's been going on in the last 247-of-24, 48 hours she wanted
all of her e-mails to be public. the state department says it could take months to look at the 55,000 e-mails. but those 55,000 e-mails, correct me if i'm wrong, were sent to the state department or were in the state department possession that hillary clinton in her server gave them access to. right? >> that's right. the question is it's not all of the e-mails that were in that server. it's what secretary clinton and her aides say were state department related, and so the question is does the i.g. or something else say you know what? a third party entity needs to be the decider on what is state department material and what isn't. and that's where there is murkiness to how these laws and policy guidelines are written. in you know did it intend to include any, if you're a government official, how much of your e-mail even private e-mail is part of the public record? and that -- that of course harks been a little unclear, but
i think one of the single questions that the secretary has to answer is the "why?" why did they decide that this was the way they were going to deal with e-mail, for any other reason other than to get around federal disclosure laws. was there another motivation? you weren't can't say security. state department e-mail was more secure than her e-mail. what other motivation, attorney get around the disclosure issue. >> chuck, talk about republicans. two leaders, jeb bush scott walker heading to iowa for the ag summit. received differently. jeb hasn't been's in iowa in what, three years? >> he hasn't. this is the first iowa trip and it's funny. we always refer to these gatherings of candidates as cattle calls. this one being on the issue, being on the -- >> ag topic of agriculture. more fitting than ever to call it a cattle call but i think, you know this is another gathering of conservatives. of iowa conservatives, and in this case we'll once again, will
walker be more well-received than jeb bush? and it would be sort of the third or fourth gathering in a row where that would be the case, and you can't help but assume that that probably will be the case. >> gishen the medlines from "meet the press" for sunday? >> tackle email issue. talk about iran and isis as well. two senators one democratic dianne feinstein, republican lindsey graham. john lewis had a great interview with him already. we're going to talk about the selma anniversary and then curt schilling and claire mccaskill on sort of the coorsarsening of rhetoric and culture and what that means. both will be eloquent on that topic. >> chuck todd, pleasure. thanks for being with me. >> see you sunday. don't forget catch chuck this sunday on "meet the press" on nbc. check local listings and don't forget to set the clocks an hour ahead before going to bed saturday night. after the break, zoom through some of today's other top stories including a freight train carrying crude oil derailing in illinois and a

>> rashad robinson strengthening african-americans' voice. pleasure to have you with me. >> thanks for having me. >> what lessons from selma resonate in your mind? >> i think the lessons of selma is the sacrifice. the sacrifice that every day people made to stand up for their rights and the power that movement building can have that when people join together when they organize when they utilize strategies, how they can force those in power, political leaders, institutions, to change. you know, over the last several months, you know we have seen a lot coming out of our government, a lot coming out of the justice department and our president particularly around ending police brutality. i testified in front of the police reform board, none of that would have happened if not for the organizing of the young people taking to the streets. in many ways the lessons of selma are very real today. >> and you've talked a lot about the difference in the way social
action has changed. 50 years ago leaders like martin luther king jr. were crucial. in the days of social media are they some in way less important than in the past? >> leadership is important, and strategy is important. but our movement is changing. right? we're not so much in the age of communication and top-down organizing but very much in this age of participation, where we're all empowered, right, in different ways through technology. we don't have to wait for traditional sort of leadership or traditional filters to validate or stories. we can utilize social media and utilize these new tools to reach everyday people and tell our stories. that doesn't mean, though, that we -- we can have a movement without leadership or a movement without strategy. it just means that the type of organizing necessary today to get more people involved to bring more people to the table, is just going to look different. >> yeah. i want to ask you a little about the ferguson report. you've said that what came out was a direct result of protests
and activists keeping pressure on officials. can you draw a line from selma to ferguson? >> absolutely you can draw a line from selma to ferguson. where people took to the streets and said enough is enough, where there was this moment where it could have went away. ferguson could have been like many other cities where we had seen young, black people hurt or harmed by police and nothing was done. much the way that there were many cities during the time of selma that were organizing that were looking to sort of raise the cultural presence around the moment that was happening, but what was different about selma and different about fergsusonferguson, both the organizing and moment met at a crucial time and amplified something happening around the country. you know at the time selma was america. issues around what selma were not just happening in selma. they were happening throughout the south and throughout many cities in the north, and just like ferguson, when i looked at the report in ferguson i think
about the stories that i continue to hear from my members all around the country, the stories of injustice, stories of brutality, and when i listen to eric holder's report i kept thinking ferguson could have been many cities around this country. so to the extent that these moments that sometimes happen on the ground where a stip can be a flashpoint for a larger conversation, that's i think what we saw in selma and that's what we're seeing now in ferguson. >> rashad robinson thanks for being with me. appreciate your time. tune in to our special coverage of selma 50 years later all this weekend on msnbc. a fiery train derailment, top stories. a freight train loaded with crude oil derailed in northern illinois yesterday sending a giant fireball into the air. everyone within a mile of the explosion forced to evacuate. the derailment happened in a rural area so firefighters could only access the site by a bike path.

majority leader mitch mcconnell pull add way in would have let congress give a thumbs up or thumbs down to a deal. took it off the schedule when lawmakers objected to him fast-tracking the bill. the national security correspondent joins me pleasure to see you. >> great to be with you. >> how much breathing room is congress willing to give the white house right now? >> i think at this point, it's pretty clear that congress is going to let the month play out and see what happens by the time of this march 24 deadline. now, that's the time period to reach a framework agreement, and it's not clear to us yet that once that agreement is announced, assuming they can reach it that we will know enough of the details or even see a text that would enable congress to make a decision. but some of the big issues that prime minister netanyahu highlighted in his speech should be evident to us including how long the agreement would freeze iran's enrichment capability
what happens at the end of that 10 to 15-year period whether they would then be free to do as much as they want and then of course, the very big issue that nobody in the administration is really answering very clearly, which is will iran be required to answer all of the outstanding questions about its potential weapons work prior to having sanctions lifted. >> seems as though these negotiations are slowing down the program, not stopping it. maybe 10 15 years, you were saying, maybe restrictioning, but not intended to stop it. >> that's right. and the reason for that is that iran is a signatory to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. while many in congress don't like it members of the mpt a treaty written largely by the united states many decades ago, fundamentally have a right to peaceful development and enrichment of their own fuel.
now, in an ideal world, one would say to the iranians look it's a lot cheaper to buy the fuel out on the open market and not have that capability yourself in the country, and then we wouldn't have to worry about whether or not you're diverting some of this to weapons work but that's not going to happen. so the question is, do you go prime minister netanyahu's route which is insist on an agreement you're probably not going to get to have zero or near zero enrichment, or try to buy some more time which has always been the way the united states has gained the iran program. >> and david, i want to turn to another issue. an article in the "times" today explaining how the obama administration strategy in iraq is increddingly depend on then iranian fighter. iran's involve in iraq was not coordinated with the u.s. but
something's going on and worrying not just israel but also worrying some arab allies of the united states? >> well, that's right. at the moment that the president made his declaration that we will not have boots on the ground that is combat boots on the ground it's fairly evident you can't beat the islamic state simply from the air. so somebody was going to have to take them on the ground. iranians have played that role. by saying we're not coordinating with the iranians i think what the secretary of state is saying is literally true but on the other hand we are very much depending on the iranians to do that ground action that the united states and its allies have chosen not to do. >> what an odd turn of events david. >> sure is. it sure is. >> thanks for being with me. appreciate your time. >> great to be back with you. >> thanks. turning now to immigration, and a new push from the white house as the president's executive action continues to hang in the balance. the administration is urging the texas federal judge who decided
against the actions to rule on its emergency stay by monday. the move comes as the states the judge sided with are urging him to reject that stay. meanwhile, confusion swirls whether or not the people who qualified under the president's actions can remain in the united states. joining me now in miami this morning, someone who deals with those real lives on a daily basis, executive director of the national immigration reform what a pleasure. >> thanks for having me. >> talk about this. a push by the white house saying to the judge, please deal with it by monday. if not it's going to new orleans? >> right. >> but then meanwhile, what's happening on the ground? >> well meanwhile, you have a department of homeland security that's funded by congress to fill 33,000 beds detention beds a month and deport up to 400,000 people a year. in fact today the american action forum released a new study showing that over 20 years, deporting or encouraging people to self-deport would cost the u.s. government anywhere between $400 billion and $600 billion over 20 years.
real dollars. the pressure is on the department of homeland security to implement new programs and on congress to fix the system. >> last week i spoke to the president about this. he was forceful on the ground seems as though officials are saying, at least for now we're not going to take the president's actions and put them into place, because it's in the courts. >> this is the thing. one of the actions that the president announced was a new program priority enforcement program, an effort to in esnens essence, slayerclarify. who is an actual threat to the united states. it's so large. secretary johnson has been stalemated almost with his officers in terms of moving the process forward. this new program. now the pressure again is on dhs to start to turn the wheels change the culture and the practices of our enforcement system so our dollars are focused on those who are here to do harm and not those contributing. >> seems to me, again, i know bureaucracies take long to
change. last september when secretary johnson announced among other things the end of secure communities, as we speak right here today in 2015 the practice of fingerprint sharing between local and state and federal officials continues. so really secure communities hasn't changed. the daca enforcement issue hasn't changed. what has changed? >> absolutely nothing changed. that is the incredible disaster that is our immigration system. and in fact you know who of caught in the middle? local law enforcement. >> tell me about that. >> local law enforcement across the country don't want to be in charge of enforcing a federal law. they want to trust and have the trust of everybody in their community. soon as they're the ones detaining and deporting somebody, that person won't report a crime, when the fabric of the local communities gets torn apart n. november. this issue continues today. what's it going to take? >> leadship from the administration and from the congress fix it legislatively and put in action these changes. >> always a pleasure. good to see you here in south

cord with our own abby huntsman. >> reporter: dear abby this is a message from your older, much more confident self. if i could have talked to you when you were in your awkward teen years i would have told you the only person you can be is yourself. >> joining me abby huntsman a quarter of the cycle. dear friend. >> almost good to be here. >> with the original video getting over 1.5 million views this campaign struck a cord around the world. why did it strike a cord for you? >> the message i had, be yourself. remember those awkward teen years when it feels like everyone else around you has it figured out and yet you feel awkward. you feel insecure. you sometimes experience bullying. but that's not the reality. so this campaign is a reminder to young girls to young people and really to everyone out there that ever feels insecure, you know, i was surprised to say the response i got to my video and rant about this yesterday was shocking. i mean everyone can relate to this on some level, and we think about this next generation
coming up with social media, and bullying, it has never been as bad as it is today. we have to do everything we can to empower young kids and remind them that they are great exactly as they are and talk to these bullies on internet to say, knock it off. it's really getting so bad out there. this struck a cord with me because i'm so passionate about this and think we can all relate to it. like i said not just young people. look what happened in missouri the man that committed suicide. the number through cause for death for young people is suicide, jose. this is so real. >> yeah. and this is as you say, also about building confidences as grown adult. right? how has your family dealt with some of the attacks its received being in the political spotlight? >> yeah. politics can bring out the worst in people. my mom experienced it when my dad was governor of utah. a guy create add blog all about my mom, wrote horrendous things like she's so ugly.
looks like a lawn mower ran over her face. your parents should be embarrassed. anyone who knows my mom wom say she's the most beautiful confident woman. she could not get out of bed for days. it was crippling to her and so hard to watch as her daughter, and even my dad had such a difficult time. she ended up finding who this guy was. he had a fake name of course as they all do, and put her arm around him when she found e him and said i'm not going to ruin your job. he was tuch teacher. had two jobs. don't do this to anyone else and do something productive. he was shaking. you never think you'll actually see that person. he wrote a letter. thank you, you have changed my life. >> abby, for the most part if there are no direct repercussions to these hallow people. >> right. >> seems like they won't change. we saw the case with schilling recently, but seems to me you said in the beginning of the conversation, so many people are
just so venomous so bitter so hallow. >> right. >> wondering if there's anything that, other than repercussions to their own direct little world will make them change? >> i think that's the way to start. curt schilling you mentioned, everyone's talking about it a reminder we all have experienced this. not only did he call out these people that were bullying his daughter, by name but he said where they worked what they -- where they live. that's the way to start. i think the most we can do right now, jose talk about it and have campaigns like you just showed on youtube with these videos reminding people it's okay to be yourself. we're all in this together and can relate to each other on this. i think that's the best way to move forward but as you said we are going to deal with this forever now with social media. people hide in their parents' basement, no one will know who they are. >> so important for all of us as a society to deal with these hallow people because it's really, the biggest problem is them. for their own lives. so hallow.

television announcer: ...is ending soon. ♪ mattress discounters ♪ back now to the monthly jobs report released this morning. employers are on a hiring surge. nearly 300,000 jobs added in a frigid february. the unemployment rate 5.5%. lowest in more than six years. african-american jobless rate remains in double digits five
points higher than national average. latino rate 6.6%. bring in jason furman. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's talk about the headline numbers. jobs that are amazing. 51,000 in professional construction, 29,000 health care, 24,000. what does it tell you about the job market? >> i try not to look at any one month. what's remarkable here we have had 12 straight months of businesses adding more than 200,000 jobs per month. haven't seen that happen since the 1970s. it is the longest streak of job growth on record. 60 straight months. and this year started off at the same fast pace we saw in 2014. so overall continued very good news for the job market. >> and at the same time i am seeing negative reaction to the report from wall street because
investors seem to be concerned wages remained flat. what's it going to take to get the wages up? >> well wages are up strongly in january, they were up a little more in february. so they are building on the inflation adjusted gains we saw in 2013. >> not very strong. >> but absolutely we need more. that's why we need to raise the minimum wage. we need to invest in education, which matters over the long run. we need to continue to strengthen the economy, with steps like investing in our infrastructure. pretty much the president's entire economic agenda is about raising wages, helping middle class families. >> as you mentioned a second ago, this new jobs report finds 6.6 million people working part time because they can't find full-time work. that's a problem, isn't it? >> we continued to see the rate of part-time employment fall. if you look at the broadest measure of labor market
underutilization, u 6, includes part timers it has fallen by more over the last year over the last month than the official unemployment rate so that's a group that's being helped by a stronger economy. but you're absolutely right, we are not all the way there yet, we are not out of the woods. we have to continue strengthening this economy. >> and then you and i always talk about that there's the african-american unemployment rate more than double what the national average is and hispanic unemployment also very high there, you see the breakdown. 10.4% and latinos 6.6%. something that just doesn't change that much. >> it is frustrating and it is unacceptable. it does change though. the overall unemployment rate has come down 1.2, 1.3 percentage points in the last year if you look at african americans or latinos, their unemployment rate has come down by substantially more than that in the last year.
a stronger economy is translating into gains for all groups. the problem is they were starting for decades from such a worse point economically that even with the big gains you're still left with a situation that's unacceptable that we need to do a lot better on. >> jason furman thanks for walking out from the white house. it is filled with snow. i wish i could share that in common with you, but we are at like 80 today. thanks so much. appreciate your time. >> thank you. as we take a turn on "the rundown," what went wrong on the runway. investigators are trying to figure out what caused a delta plane to skid off the runway, look how close it was to the water. we are getting a live report. and remembering selma 50 years later. kristin will kerr is there, and i talk with james clyburn next on msnbc. o be asked is "what is it that we can do that is impactful?"

jose diaz-balart. welcome back to "the rundown." starting this hour with the weather. still freezing across much of the country. old man winter may finally be making an exit. meteorologist bill karins joins me. >> i can tell you something positive for the first time in two months. >> we are hoping. >> start with the crazy numbers, overachieving snowstorm from yesterday and record cold this morning. this one was the most impressive snowfall total. lexington, kentucky 17 inches that's a two day snowfall record not in march, all time. ever since they have been recording stuff. that's how significant it was. that's why we had crazy pictures with people trapped on the roads. this morning to add to insult one last arctic blast. some areas it was the fourth coldest they were all winter. the most impressive the pittsburgh number. pittsburgh was at negative three
degrees! that's the coldest, jose they have been in march in recorded history over 100 years. crazy stuff. chicago had a record low, lexington, nashville, new orleans, down to 31 degrees. >> dallas look at dallas. >> dallas 23. they had four inches of snow which is still on the ground. let's talk about positive stuff here. the weather pattern is switching this weekend. we are getting a break from everything. finally all of the warmth here in the west will start to head to the east. it will be slow going to take a little bit but on its way. notice over the weekend, 53 in oklahoma city. going through the weekend, that warmth continues to move in. 60 in st. louis, 46 in d.c. atlanta at 62. finally back toward where you should be. by sunday there's two feet of snow on the ground, it will take awhile for new england to warm up. it is like trying to warm up the freezer. 41. that's a start. this is what we wanted.
we wanted a week of quiet, wanted temperatures to slowly warm. we want to avoid historic flood because there's 24 inches plus on the ground. if i was going to draw a line on the map, i have to say that two foot snow line goes like this. we need to melt that slowly. looking way ahead, we have seven days then looks like a big rain storm comes out of the gulf goes up to the north. we have seven days to get rid of the snow to avoid record breaking flood. >> thank you. have a good weekend. don't forget to spring forward this weekend. president obama is expected to leave for south carolina tomorrow, where police attacked civil rights protest ors. he talked about the legacy of selma. >> it didn't just open up the
doors for black folks, wasn't just about black folks, it was about america and who we are, and the legacy that then opened the doors for americans with disabilities and latinos and asian americans and women. and that's a legacy we have to be proud of but we have to understand what that spirit was about. it wasn't just about one race it was about who all of us are. >> nbc's kristin welker in selma, alabama. good morning kristin. tell me what you're seeing and what we are expecting in the next day or so. >> reporter: jose good morning to you. you can really feel the energy building in selma as this community and as the nation prepares to mark the anniversary of the march here in selma. people have started to arrive by the bus loads. people have been flying in to selma to mark this momentous occasion. to remind everyone what this was about, this was a march for voting rights for african
americans, and in large part it started march 7th 1965 when hundreds of demonstrators tried to cross the bridge behind me. they were beaten by troopers with tear gas, night sticks some were trampled by troopers horseback, dozens seriously injured. wasn't until several weeks later they were successful at marching from selma, 54 miles, to montgomery. that's when martin luther king spoke, he gave a memorable speech about voting rights civil rights. i spoke with debra montgomery who was 19 years old when she traveled here all the way from minnesota to join in the march for civil rights and for voting rights. she reminded me yesterday about why she had to be here 50 years ago. take a listen to what she had to say. >> were you scared? >> you know what everybody asks me that question. i was 19 and we thought we were going to live forever.
but more importantly, we were on a purpose, a mission. that's what we came for. it was a mission. if that meant we had to give up our life to do that i was willing to do that. >> you were willing to give up your life? >> i was willing to give up our life if it was going to change our country and issues and policies that were effecting my people. >> reporter: now, montgomery also told me that given the tensions between minority communities and law enforcement, given the recent supreme court decision in 2013 which effectively gutted the voting rights act, she feels as though she's still marching today. looking ahead to tomorrow president obama will be here he is going to speak, he is going to talk about the significance of being the first african-american president, the fact that he stands on the shoulders of the people who marched here 50 years ago, but he is also going to talk about work that remains. he will likely reference the voting rights act, tensions between law enforcement and local communities. he is going to be joined by
former president george w. bush as well as about 100 members from congress republicans, democrats, civil rights leaders, thousands of people who will be here in selma to mark this moment 50 years ago that changed the shape of this country. back to you, jose. >> kristin welker thank you so much. great to see you. bring in democratic congressman, third ranking democrat in the house, james clyburn. pleasure to see you. >> thank you for having me. >> president obama said that selma isn't just about african americans, that it opened the door for all types of people. tell me what selma means to you. >> well selma means a whole lot to me the fact of the matter is i was a 25-year-old, well really only 24 when the march took place back in 1965 25 years old when voting rights act was passed in august of that year. and i was part of snick, along
with john lewis and many others and we were really trying to bring the country to a place where we could begin to work together to build a more perfect union. and i think the president is right. selma is much more than about black people it is about this country living out the true meaning of that edict of building a more perfect union, being able to pursue happiness, and those things were not happening in the south, and i grew up in south carolina. so we were challenged tremendously to do something about it. when bloody sunday occurred it was after as you know the '64 civil rights act, but voting was not included in that act. housing was not included in that act. in fact it didn't even apply to
the public sector. a lot of people don't realize when we passed the civil rights act of 1964 the unemployment discrimination part of that was only in the private sector. cities and states and counties were still free to discriminate and did so until 1972. so we were putting building blocks in place. now, what has recently happened after the passage in 1965 of the voting rights act, we are now seeing the supreme court rip one of those blocks away. so if you take one block out of the foundation you could very well start the whole thing to crumble. so i am hopeful that when we leave selma tomorrow that we will go back to washington democrats and republicans, and work together to put things in
place that they have already introduced to restore the effectiveness of the voting rights act because we know from state legislatures more than 20 of them we still need that oversight to make sure people have voting rights. >> congressman, you talked about the need for young people the message of selma and so many other messages in the civil rights movement to get to young people. do you think that's getting through? >> well the president is here in south carolina today. i will be greeting him at the colombia airport in two hours. he is going to benedict college. he is meeting with boys and girls clubs, the big brothers big sisters, and my brother's keeper initiative in south carolina to say to them that as young people college students young adults you have as much
responsibility to force issues in this country as the young people did 50 years ago. we shouldn't be celebrating 50 years in retrospect. we have to be proactive as we go forward. >> congressman, thank you for being with me. pleasure to see you this morning. >> thank you so much for having me. >> tune in for our special coverage of selma 50 years later, all this weekend on msnbc. today at noon co-founders of black lives matter will join us for a twitter chat on the 50th anniversary of selma. tweet your questions with #msnbcchat. now to new york a few hours ago the delta jet that skidded off the runway at the laguardia runway was moved from the crash site. 24 passengers had minor issues when it crashed through a chain-link fence before stopping feet from icy waters. sarah dal off is live there.
what are you learning about how this happened? >> reporter: good morning, jose. we are learning about how it may have happened and hearing from passengers aboard that flight and their fears as they watched the frigid waters get closer and closer. one woman in the front of the plane, felt unprepared for what possibly was coming. worried she might never see her family again. today those passengers 127 of them on board, a lot of them saying they feel very lucky, very blessed. and the port authority is praising the pilot's work. >> i think the pilot did everything he could to slow the aircraft down. obviously the pilot and co-pilot good efforts were reflected in the fact there were only minor injuries. >> reporter: meanwhile, you mention that crane coming to move the jet off the runway it has been taken to a hangar at laguardia where the ntsb will document the damage to it. they will also be retrieving flight data and cockpit voice
recorders, a lot of factors they will look at in the investigation, including of course whether it was snowing at the time of the incident. however, airport managers say the runway had just been plowed and that pilots of two previous flights right before that delta flight say braking action at the time was good so it should be very interesting, jose to hear what comes out of this investigation. >> sarah, thank you so much. good to see you. in california, another plane crashed with a lucky landing. actor harrison fordree covering at a hospital this morning after crash landing a vintage plane he was flying onto a golf course. he contacted air traffic control immediately after realizing something was wrong. >> 53178 engine failure, with immediate return. >> ryan 1778 runway 2 clear to land. >> hallie jackson is near the crash site. what's the latest on harrison ford's position? >> reporter: he is expected to make a full recovery
hospitalized in fair to moderate condition. went through surgery, had a nasty gash on the head and broken arm, but expected to be okay. his son says he is battered expected to be fine. kind of an amazing scene. we are in front of the golf course where he crash landed. a couple hundred feet away, row of houses and ford managed to land on a spot not populated. a couple of doctors were playing golf behind me were able to rush to his aid, help him out, get him to the ambulance. we spoke with tom haynes who will has flown with him in the past. >> harrison is meticulous in his flying, does extra training more than required by the faa. i have seen him do incredibly thorough preflight of helicopter before flight in a helicopter very cautious and capable. >> reporter: witnesses say it is
lucky ford was able to land here. spoke to one man probably saved some lives, jose. >> do we know how this happened? obviously an engine failure, but any more information on that? >> reporter: you know, you understand that ford had taken off from santa monica airport not far from here when there were engine problems. folks in the area reported hearing the sound of the engine and sputtering then nothing as the plane began to glide through the air, that's when he crash landed. faa, ntsb are now investigating. but because it was a vintage plane from world war ii era, there's no black box. some aviation experts say this investigation could take longer than usual, maybe up to a year. >> hallie jackson, thanks for being with me. good to see you. coming up two huge events that will heat up the 2016 race for the white house. the clintons take the stage in miami, and hillary's growing e-mail controversy, and republicans head to iowa for a

hillary clinton will have opportunity to address the e-mail controversy if she wishes to tomorrow night. the former secretary of state headlines an event for clinton global initiative in miami. this morning, the state department is hitting back at reports that allege clinton violated state department rules using her personal e-mail for government business. senior official tells nbc news they will not know if rules are broken until they complete a review of 55,000 e-mails, a process expected to last months. it is all fodder for republicans eyeing the white house. candidates are flocking this weekend to states crucial in the general election.
joining me now, mark ka putin oh and benjy sarlin. mark, start with you. hillary clinton sent an e-mail saying she wants the public to see all her e-mails. how is this going to play if she doesn't confront this one way or another soon? >> well so far it hasn't helped her very much if you look at all of the headlines and you look at the tweets even people on the left seem to be disappointed with hillary clinton and the way she handled this. perhaps there are better explanations, so far those haven't come out. it certainly appears as if there was a policy at the state department that you aren't supposed to use private e-mails in this way, and she seems to have done it perhaps 55,000 times. we would be eager to hear her explanation, and i doubt she's going to do it at this event though. why step on your own headline. this is supposed to be a feel good event to tout the global
initiative. i have been one of the people riding the line whether to announce campaign structure early or not. here is a good example of perhaps why she should. then she would have an organized capacity to be able to respond to controversies like this which so far seem to be hot and consuming her time. >> benjy, serious contenders haven't brought this up too much. why is that? >> i think you would hear two explanations for this, depending who you ask. if you ask republicans, they say they shouldn't weigh in a lot. the press is going after hillary clinton hard for this. there's a drip drip of additional stories every day. why let her frame it as partisan instead of skrult knee. quite a few republican contenders have had e-mail controversies of their own or engaged in similar behavior using private e-mails themselves. jeb bush released thousands and thousands of e-mails from his
time as governor but those were also on a private e-mail account. >> that he controls. >> with a private server. in addition, scott walker when he was milwaukee county executive, his staff there used private e-mails to discuss official business which led to a three year probe of their behavior. as democrats see it don't want the camera turned back to them. >> mark what did you want to say? >> oh, i am still here. can you hear me? >> i'm sorry, i thought you wanted to say something. i think you were doing an audio check. >> i did. this has been mentioned about jeb bush that he used a private e-mail and that's true. having covered jeb bush during that period of time. >> still does. >> he does. but he began using e-mail when e-mail was first coming in. while he did use it kind of for public business he did disclose many of the e-mails. he has selected what are publicly available now. florida law allowed the steward of the e-mail to make that
selection, decide what's private and what's not. the big difference here is that it is not against florida state policy for a government employee to use private e-mails to conduct public business. >> she used that until she came out of office state department didn't have that policy until she came out of office? >> that's a good question. there are some reports, including politico concerning who was allowed to use private e-mails in what capacity. >> and benjy, scott walker leading the gop in a new poll, you write how he iseshe is expected to sign a bill weakening public unions in his state. >> it is a broader trend for scott walker he has been pushing further and further to the right ahead of the 2016 presidential election, giving him an ironclad resume as a strong conservative contender. in this case set to sign right to work legislation, restricts private sector unions makes it
more difficult to add new members. something that's common in a lot of red states blue state like wisconsin with a long history of powerful labor activism it is more of a shock. what stands out, something that scott walker said for years he wasn't planning to do. everyone knows him for a fight with public sector unions in 2011 which led to his recall election. after that he toned things down wasn't planning to move on with further anti-union legislation. so this is one of several fronts he has moved to the right recently. he also came out for a 20 week abortion ban, something he had not done in the past and renounced past interest in a possible path to legal status for undocumented immigrants saying he made a mistake, no longer believes in that. >> thank you for being with me this morning. appreciate it. >> thank you. up next going to zoom through some of the other stories making news including nasa's dwarf planet mission. a major breakthrough in space

a philadelphia officers killed, a dwarf planet. philadelphia police in mourning after one of their own killed in the line of duty. officer robert wilson eight year veteran of the force, was shot and killed during an attempted robbery thursday. the officer and partner were in a videogame store when someone tried to rob it. two suspects are in custody, one wounded is also hospitalized. in argentina, ex-wife of the prosecutor found dead says her former husband was killed. she hired a team of experts to
investigate his death. the team concluded that he was murdered and his body moved to the bathroom. he was found dead in his bathroom on the 18th of january, a day before he was supposed to testify about explosive accusations against the president of that country. he was accusing the president being involved in a secret deal with iran to cover up the country's alleged role in 1994 bombing of a jewish community center in buenos aires. and to a milestone in space. after seven years in orbit, dawn is set to arrive at the dwarf planet series between mars and jupiter. series discovered more than 200 years ago. believed the planet was once home to life may no longer be so. one of five dwarf planets, first to host an orbitting spacecraft. life there? don't know. we are going to find out. a blockbuster jobs report

what's remarkable here is we've had 12 straight months of our businesses adding more than 200,000 jobs per month. haven't seen that happen since the 1970s. it is the longest streak of job growth on record. >> that was president obama's chief economic adviser last hour on "the rundown," talking about the strong jobs report. labor department says nearly 300,000 jobs were added in february. the unemployment rate edged down to 5.5% lowest number in more than six years. let me bring in injury odd bernstein. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, jose. >> a strong start for the new year. can this continue do you think? >> i do think it can continue and in fact i think the way to
look at the monthly numbers is to smooth out the bips and bops due to statistical noise and look at longer term averages. the average in the past six months we have been adding around 290,000 jobs per month on average. if you extrapolate that over the course of a year that's 3.5 million jobs a year and that's a nice clip. >> no. listen while the national employment rate is lower, we need to point out five points higher for african americans, a point higher for latinos. how do you close the gap. we talked about this a lot. the fact that it is inching south, but boy, look at the number for african-american employment. it is a big number seems to be slow in changing. >> i think that's right an important. i was writing about that last week. here's the thing. when the economy sniffles disadvantaged workers catch pneumonia. when it improves and improves at a faster clip they tend to
disproportionately see gains. if we can actually get this economy continuing to move toward what's full employment and we are not there yet, we will see real gains reaching minority workers. one area where we still see a bit of weakness is on the wage side. wages are growing. >> absolutely. but listen it has been slow and continues to be slow. as a matter of fact, wall street is reacting not as well as maybe one could expect with the numbers because precisely the slow wage growth. >> exactly. so here's the thing about wages. they're rising 2% year over year. that's the case about five years. you may think steady as she goes, right? not really as the job market tightens and the unemployment rate falls, you expect to see wage growth accelerate to pick up speed. we haven't seen that. what we have seen is inflation go far down. so your paycheck is going a bit further in real terms. the absence of wage growth is
still a bit of a dark spot. >> good to see you. thanks for being with me this friday. >> thank you jose. in boston testimony resumes in the bombing trial monday packed with raw emotion. tears were flowing as bill richard talked about a horrific decision for any parent. he had to leave his dying son martin to save his daughter who lost a leg in the blast. he told jurors i just knew from what i saw there was no chance. i nguyen my head i needed to act quickly or we might not only lose martin but we might lose jane too. bring in boston globe columnist donte ramos. >> thanks for having me. >> what a gut wrenching statement. what kind of impact does this kind of testimony have? >> it is certainly for the better there's no testimony scheduled today because it's almost too difficult for jurors to process the intensity of bill
richards' testimony, repeated day after day after day. the thing to understand is the prosecutors are operating on two tracks in a way, they're on one hand emphasizing the mass scale of this event, which goes beyond the three deaths that appeared at the finish line there were a lot of injuries there was chaos, massive law enforcement mobilization. it was a mass event. they're trying to emphasize that. at the same time, they're also emphasizing the human scale, the individual decision making that went into all of that and it multiplies the emotional effects of it. bill richards' situation was probably the most harrowing of anyone but multiply that times all the people out there on the marathon course and it gives you a sense of the level of panic that people experienced and that's the image that the prosecutors are trying to
create. >> i just read that again, and tough to even get it out of your mind, you think about this parent with two kids knowing one is gone and, you know -- >> what was extraordinary about bill richards' testimony was his poise, the level of composure that he managed to maintain in that situation. it is hard to imagine anyone else doing the same thing. >> and during all this dramatic testimony, tsarnaev no emotion, right? >> he's not shown much emotion. the defense also having conceded essentially the guilt phase of the trial has not been really inserting itself very much and it is unclear how that will play out the next couple weeks of the trial. >> thanks for being here. >> thank you. >> i didn't mean to cut you off man. go ahead. >> what i was going to say is you know just the stage craft of a trial, i don't know that we should necessarily look at it in
those terms but it is not clear how this will all play out if witness after witness goes on unchallenged and you just have this long parade of misery that's played out. >> donte, thanks. good to see you. >> thank you. >> want to bring in former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney, host of "the docket" on msnbc shift. pleasure to see you. >> hi jose. >> i was talking to donte, this issue of the father making that difficult choice right, incredibly emotional testimony. we also heard from jeff bauman yesterday, he lost both legs in the blast. what's the prosecution strategy in presenting the witnesses the way they're doing it? >> the prosecution strategy is to get the jury to sympathize and relive the bombing. the judge has been criticized that the prosecutors are being allowed to introduce a lot of evidence that is horrific and in
legal terms basically inflames the jury. donte's point is a good one. will we see a parade of witnesses without cross examination? that's a concern. >> the fact is this stuff happened and these stories are true stories that have effected so many people. the defense yesterday tried to limit testimony with some of the witnesses, didn't they? >> exactly. and jose that's a good point. there's something called cumulative. you can't keep having the same witness say the same thing. but what the prosecution is saying is no, no, no, no, no. these are different witnesses with different injuries and different vantage points and they bring different fact testimony to the trial. >> thanks for being with me. >> always a pleasure. >> catch her show on shift.msnbc.com. turning to one of hollywood's most successful funny guys no ordinary comedian, many consider him a comedic genius.
he recently won the louis xivth award. and ronan farrow recently spoke to him as part of our seven days of genius coverage with new york's 92nd street y. >> i am not a genius i am not that smart. that's why i am stoned and don't say big words in the movies i can't even write a smart, witty character. >> joining me now, ronan farrow. good morning. good to see you, buddy. >> good to see you, jose. thanks for having me on. >> did he finally admit he is a genius? >> he is so smart and thoughtful about the changing media landscape, he has been so massively successful, basically father of the modern bromance, but been cancelled by just about every network. dealt with the ups and downs of ratings, told him i wouldn't know about that. he talked about this netflix
project, they're attracting new writing and directorial talent and he is too gracious to talk about himself as a genius but he talked about his personal heroes. talked about james brooks garry shandling who he learned so much from marx brothers and talked about bill cosby, one of his personal heroes. he has taken a real stand on cosby. take a listen to this. >> he is an important symbol for accomplishment and people that want to tear that down but there is a line after 20 rape accusations, you can say maybe he's not the best symbol. >> maybe time to speak up. >> maybe we don't need him, have other people we can look up to. >> interesting take there. taking a stand. >> ronan, such a pleasure to see you, man. >> always a pleasure jose. >> watch that full interview,

and director of operations for the victory group. thanks for being with me. jimmy, start with you. why hasn't the clinton camp been ahead of the e-mail story. could she have done something differently? >> i will readily admit this is optically not the best way to go about it. however, i will say this. we know that hillary clinton released 50,000 pages of e-mails. we know the state department, she has instructed state department to release all her e-mails. what we also know is there's a double standard here. this is my bigger problem with the entire picture, not that the clintons are secretive, not transparent, it is that there's a double standard. we know jeb bush released 10% of his e-mails. not 90%, 10%. clinton will release 100% of her e-mails. we know this is going to be a fact. but jeb bush released 10%. why is there a double standard? people will say jeb bush was governor of florida, not secretary of state. guess what what we know of 10%
of the e-mails he did release, there were people's full social security numbers in them. if that's not a data breach security breach, i am not sure what is. if you're going to run for president, let's hold everyone to the same standard and then we can have a conversation a legitimate conversation about e-mails. otherwise, it is a complete and total clinton bashing, 1990s pottery barn moment and bores me to tears to be brutally honest. >> on the republican side, let me read you what cheryl mcdonald, retiree who voted for both bushes there. she says i am finding out they did some things we got stuck with. i do not want to see jeb bush run. he turns me off. how does he break that image in what will be a crucial visit this weekend? >> i think coming off his run at cpac jeb bush is coming out as the frontrunner candidate who comes off very real very easy
to relate to by other candidates. as long as he does it again, i think he will be fine. >> you know he does have the fact that you know for example, i am sure she is not the only one, this voter who supported both bushes says i think there's, bush i don't know enough is enough. is that something he is going to have to fight you think consistently? >> yes, but no more than another clinton is enough clintons. it is just kind of a done argument at this point in my opinion. >> so jimmy, on the democratic side, heard jimmy fallon joking about the race obviously it is a joke is there a plan b for the democrats or should there be thoughts of a plan b now? >> first and foremost hillary clinton hasn't declared she's running for president, i hope she does and i hope she wins i think she will looking at the electoral map. i don't disagree that the idea
that we have bushes and clintons, is there somebody else out there, per se. i am okay with that. you know what the american people like per se they like people to run things well. what we do know is under bill clinton we had unprecedented economic growth, we had job growth, surpluses, remember those neat things surpluses, i am okay with clintons being in the white house. i am totally okay with that. i don't buy the idea of bush or clinton fatigue. i don't. i don't think the american people do either. >> the fact is jimmy, that hillary clinton and jeb bush weren't the president. haven't been the president. >> that's right. that's right. >> pluses and negatives of family members, you know you can't really attribute it to them. >> no, you can't, but honestly i think from 1789 to now, men have run this country. i would like for maybe a woman to try. i think they would do a dad gum good job of running american businesses running american homes, and not for profits and things like that.
why don't we put in a woman and see how she does. if carly fee or even a thinks she can run and win, put her up. i would like to see hillary clinton pommel her. >> the republicans don't have this issue of you know enough people running or thinking about running. almost all them are running to iowa this weekend. how does someone like scott walker shake up against santorum and huckabee? >> we saw that scott walker had a huge win with this right to work state bill that's going through probably today in his state. i think that makes him for right now, has potential to put him in the lead among other republicans. that argument plays well to the base and i think we will probably see a spike in his campaign for at least a little while, but he has a lot of potential. i think this is going to help him. >> ashley jimmy, thank you both for being with me. >> thank you. up next check this out. a land where cats outnumber
