2:30 am
welcome back, everyone. i'm alex witt alongside louis burgdorf. we're starting off with the top stories. as we follow breaking news out of canada where six people are dead following a shooting at a mosque in quebec city in what the country's prime minister is
2:31 am
calling an act of terrorism. officials from the city's police department say two suspects have been arrested in connection to the attack. eight other people were also hurt. and delta airlines is flying around the u.s. again after a system outage forced all domestic flights to be grounded for about two hours last night. about 80 flights scheduled for today have been canceled. so delta is telling customers to check their flight status ahead of time. last week a computer program forced united airlines to ground all domestic flights. and the trump administration is trying to clarify part of the controversial travel ban that had some green card holders detained at the airports despite being permanent residents. last night john kelly released a statement declaring, quote, entry of permanent red dense in the national interest. but added where information suggests a serious threat to public safety, those residents will be treated on a case-by-case basis. let's go back now to our top story, the attack on the mosque in quebec. and msnbc foreign correspondent
2:32 am
ayman mulhadin is live from the studio with more on this attack. >> reporter: details are still coming in, but obviously this is being considered by the prime minister of canada as an act of terrorism. what we have learned so far from both eyewitness accounts, our partners in canada as well as the police in quebec, it seems that two gunmen entered the mosque around evening prayer times. at that time, there are about 100 or so worshippers in the mosque engaged in that prayer. and it is customary that men were praying on the lower floor, women on the upper level. the shooting took place mostly on the lower level where most of the victims were, including some children according to eyewitnesss. at that point, two of the gunmen managed to escape. two of them were apprehended later by police. one further away from the mosque. we no e that the police had checkpoints and a perimeter around the area trying to find out more. but obviously, strong condemnation coming from political leadership and security officials.
2:33 am
we are also learning terms of color, one eyewitness said they were shocked to hear about this. now officials have not come out to say this was as a result of anti-islamic sentiment. but at the time what we're hearing at this particular point, we're hearing from an eyewitness who is saying they were shocked that something like this could happen in their community given the fact there was a close relationship between the mosque and the community and the city of quebec. >> and no discrimination thus far of the suspects, ayman? >> reporter: nothing yet just something anecdotely. but police have not confirmed the motive at this time. >> aman, thank you. we'll see you again on "morning joe." and alex, senate democrats are voicing criticism over donald trump's executive order banning immigrants from seven predominantly muslim countries. chuck schumer grew emotional yesterday vowing to introduce legislation to rescind the order. >> this executive order -- was
2:34 am
mean-spirited and un-american. it was implemented in a way that created chaos and confusion across the country and it will only serve to embolden and inspire those around the globe who will do us harm. >> an emotional senator schumer there. now in a tweet, senator bernie sanders called trump's executive order an ugly stain on everything this country is supposed to stand for. and elizabeth warren said democrats will take the matter to court. >> we will not stop fighting until this executive order is tossed in the dust bin of history where it belongs. >> and democratic lawmakers are expected to hold a rally on the steps of the supreme court later today in response to president trump's executive order. in a letter to her colleagues, nancy pelosi said house and senate democrats will gather to demand that the president
2:35 am
withdraw the order. and yesterday reince priebus chief of staff to president trump noted the need for greater scrutiny on visas and floated expanding countries currently under the ban. >> it doesn't seem like the administration did anything to kind of soften the blow of something it believes strongly in. >> there's no reason to soften the blow. you need to pull the band-aid off, john, and start the process of protecting this country from another san bernardino, which, by the way, was a person that did have a valid k-1 visa, which was a spousal visa, came into the country and then committed a horrible crime in california. >> the husband was a u.s. citizen, right? >> but she was on a spouse visa. but that goes to your first question -- >> from one of the seven countries? >> maybe you're right to expand the countries. >> will that be coming? >> just like the people in kentucky planning an attack in kentucky and president obama
2:36 am
suspended that program. >> in 2011. >> in 2011. valid visas are great, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't be subjected to further questioning. >> just to clarify, tashfeed malik move d moved. steve bannon has seen his role elevated on the principal's committee while the director of national intelligence and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff have seen their roles diminished, only attending where issues pertaining to their responsibilities and expertise are to be discussed. some national security stalwarts were disappointed by that event. susan rice wrote, this is stone cold crazy. after a week of crazy.
2:37 am
who needs military advice on intel to make policy on isil, syria, afghanistan or dprik? some republicans are sharing her concern. >> i am worried about the national security council, who are the members of it and who are the permanent members? appointing mr. bannon is a radical departure from any national security council in history. remember karl rove when he sat in on one? and axelrod when he was supposedly -- look, that is role of the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff that has been diminished i understand within this organization. one person indispensable is the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff in my view. >> the director of central intelligence and the dmi and the
2:38 am
chair of the joint chiefs of staff. i think pushing them out of the national security council meetings, except when their specific issues are at stake, is a big mistake. >> well, what they have done is modernized the national security council so that it is less bureaucratic and more focused on providing the president with the intelligence he needs to make decisions. >> and steve bannon, what does he provide? >> he's a formal naval officer and understands the geopolitical landscape that we have now. >> so he's giving military advice in there? >> no, part of this is analysis. the data comes in and how we synthesize the data to make the best decision for the country is not just about intelligence, but about the intelligence and the analysis that comes out of that. having the chief strategist for the president in those meetings who has a significant military background to help make, guide, what the president's final analysis will be is crucial. >> the white house is standing by its statement on holocaust remembrance day but didn't specifically remember jews that were killed.
2:39 am
instead, it offered generic victims, survivors and heroes of the holocaust referring to, those who died and to make sure it never happens again. but never mentioning the 6 million jews massacred. they called it an unfortunate omission while the president said there was deep chagrin and pain against donald trump. this is what happened on "meet the press" yesterday. >> everyone's heart here is impacted by the memory of that terrible time. and so for the record that's the case. >> does the president regret -- >> we don't mean ill-will to anybody. >> does the president regret? not acknowledging the pain -- >> we acknowledge it. we acknowledge the horrible time of the holocaust and what it meant for history. >> but whitewash jews from that statement.
2:40 am
>> i'm not whitewashing anything. >> yes you did. >> i'm telling you now that's the way we feel about it. and that it's a terrible time in history. obviously, i think you know president trump has dear family members that are jewish. and there's no harm or ill-will or offense intended by any of that. >> so you put a religious test on muslims and you try to scrub reference to jews in the holocaust remembrance. i think all of these things are happening together. when you have the chief political adviser in the white house, steve bannon, who is connected with a news organization that traffics in white supremacy and anti-semitism, and they put out a holocaust statement that emits any mention of views. we have to remember, this is what holocaust denial is, either to deny that it happens or any
2:41 am
haul caolocaust deniers say the that jews were not targeted. the fact they did that and the test in the executive orders against muslims on the same day is not a coincidence. >> the holocaust was about the jews. there is no proud way to offer a remembrance of the haul cast that does not reflect that simple, awful, world-historical fact. to universalize it to all those who suffered is to scrub the all ka holocaust of its meaning. the president could announce his pick for supreme court today or tomorrow speeding up an announcement that was expected for thursday. in and interview late last week, the president said he almost decided on a pick and gave a hint on the candidate's ideology. >> i think evangelicals, christians will love my pick. and it will be represented very, very fairly. >> tonight democrats will rally
2:42 am
