appeared unfazed by the growing opposition. >> we actually had a very good day yesterday in terms of homeland security. some day we had to make the move, and we decided to make the move. >> aer president obama is chiming in on the controversy. his spokesman released a statement saying he fundamentally disagrees with faith discrimination and he added that he's heartened by the level of engagement taking place across the country. critics of the order are questioning why those particular seven countries were singled out. that's right. they say the terrorists who launched attacks inside the u.s. actually came from other nations that did not make the list. abc's brian ross takes a closer look. >> reporter: president trump's ban somehow misses the very countries that have produced the terrorists responsible for the deadliest u.s. attacks. none of those killers came from any of the seven countries on his list, libya, sudan, syria, iraq, iran, yemen, and somalia.
the 9/11 hijackers came from saudi arabia, egypt, lebanon and the united arab emirates. none of them on the list. the wife in the san bernardino terror couple came from pakistan, not on the list. the husband american born. the boston bombing brothers came from the russian republic of dagestan, also not on the list. david muir asked the president about the missing countries last week. >> reporter: let me ask you about some of the countries that won't be on the list. afghanistan, pakistan, saudi arabia. >> you're going to see. you're going to see. we're going to have extreme vetting in all cases and i mean extreme. and we're not letting people in if we think there's even a little chance of some problem. >> reporter: the white house said other countries could be added if necessary. >> it's a 90-day review period, and if you've got other countries, please let us know. >> reporter: refugees from somalia, which is on the list, were involved in two terror attacks last year at a minnesota mall and at ohio state university, but in each case, only the attacker died.
the president's supporters also point to how the obama administration drastically curtailed the flow of refugees from iraq for six months in 2011. that came after the fbi discovered two iraqi refugees connected to al qaeda had made it into the u.s. and were plotting attacks from their new home in kentucky. >> u.s. military officials tell abc news that the seven countries on mr. trump's list are among the places the military believes isis fighters fleeing the battlefield may try to hide. brian ross, abc news, new york. >> questions are growing about the egalt of president trump's travel ban. legal experts divided whether the courts will find it constitution. on the one hand, federal law gives the president broad powers to control immigration. opponents argue the ban appears to violate the constitution's bar on religious discrimination. already washington and massachusetts are signaling they will challenge the ban in court.
>> we're just hours away from finding out who trump will nominate for the supreme court. >> he willnounce his pick to be replace antonin scalia at 8:00. p.m. tonight. sources tell abc news he has narrowed down his choice, to judge neil gorsuch, a harvard law grad, judge thomas hardiman sits on the same court as the president's sister. the man suspected of opening fire at a mosque in quebec is charged with six counts of first degree murder in the attack and abc's lan nab zack has more. in a show of international solidarity with the victims of the quebec attack, the eiffel tower in paris went dark. canadian authorities now releasing the name of the suspect alexandre bissonnette, believed to have acted alone. >> we can't express our sadness. >> the quebec cultural center remembered their fellow members killed on sunday. this man asked that the six dead
be remembered as members of the community. they had wives, children, families. prime minister trudeau said the act of terror committed against the muslim community was an attack against all canadians. >> we will mourn this devastating attack and we will heel together heal together as one community, as one country, and as one family. >> reporter: investigators are piecing together the details of the fatal shooting attack that left six people dead, eight more injured. investigators are saying little about the motivation. >> we know that this horror has been based on intolerance and hot red towards one spec community. it's too early to say exactly what kind of message these people, horrible message they wanted to send. >> reporter: president trump spoke with canada's prime minister and offered up the support of the united states. one other thing, according to the white house spokesman, both men agreed on the need to let the investigation play out and not rush to any judgment. >> thank you, lana. a big shift in policy for the boy scouts. it now appears or it will now
allow transgender children who identify as boys to be scouts. the organization says it made the decision to begin basing enrollments in its programs on gender listed on the application to become a scout. the boy scouts had previously held a policy that relied on the gender listed on a child's birth certificate. >> five homes in the hills above los angeles have been evacuated after a mudslide. it buried two power poles and took down power lines knocking out electricity to the neighborhood. at least three homes were damaged but officials think the area is stable now though they are keeping an eye out overnight. in northern california, crews have knocked down a 20-unit apartment complex which had been hanging on the edge of the ocean. residents have moved out about a year ago because of the danger. you can see it right there over the cliff. neighbors on the block now fear their houses could be next to go, given the continued erosion. pretty scary for anyone living in that neighborhood.
they could have missed an opportunity. people stare at webcams looking at traffic intersection or even a puddle. imagine the kind of webcam traffic they could have gotten for people waiting to see what happened at the complex. they could have used the money from advertising on the cam to reimburse whoever owns that building. >> i'm going to say something it's silly. forget it. i was like you could try to pretend you're pushing it over. forget it. anyway, your idea is much better. webcam. >> i think we should move on. coming up, count down to super bowl sunday. last night was super bowl media night's kickoff. we call it opening night. we found out fun little tidbits about the falcons and pats including favorite pickup lines, favorite karaoke songs and then austria. into women of "the >> mean highway, women of "the bachelor" are dialing up both the heat and the drama. see what's being called the lamest group date ever.
