9:02 am
show you some of those countries. those protests sparked here at dulles airport and airports across the country. people from those countries within hours of that executive order being signed were either being turned back at points of them bar kags or detained once they got to the u.s. we talked to some people. there are stories behind those numbers. there was a woman here last night waiting for a nephew. >> i am very, very concerned. i'm an american citizen. i've been here in this country over 30 years. all my daughters are here, born here as citizens. so is my husband, who's here over 40 years. we are the fabric of this society. i am very concerned, and i'm going to tell president trump, rescind your executive orders. they' g

9:04 am
and security of the american people, end quote. they also say that the u.s. government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety. now, the federal judge issued the order last night after lawyers for the american civil liberties union filed a court petition on behalf of families from the ban tned countries. >> we asked the judge to hold everything in place. we believe this executive order is clearly unlawful, but we said to the judge we understand she may need time to figure that out to block the removal of everyone nationwide who's been caught up in this unlawful executive order. she agreed. the government may not send anybody back until she finally rules. everyone now who came is safe. >> and we know there are a lot of moving parts to all of this. we're going to do our best to give you the four things to know about thev
9:05 am
first, president donald trump signed that executive order, as you know, on friday. it puts that 120-day hold on entry of refugees to the united states and indefinitely suspends the entry of syrian refugees. the order also suspends entry for 90 days from iraq, syria, iran, syria, somalia, and yemen. now, second things get stickier. yesterday a federal judge in new york issued an emergency order temporarily barring the u.s. border agents from deporting people from those seven countries. third, the judge's action is important because foreign-born u.s. residents who could have been barred from re-entering the united states under the immigration order have been allowed back into the country. finally, something we've been seeing at dulles international are people with temporary restraining order papers. they were granted by a u.s. district judge and require all
9:06 am
permanent legal u.s. residents to be permitted lawyers, as is required by federal law. meanwhile, president trump says his immigration crackdown is not a muslim ban. he was asked about his executive order yesterday, specifically whether the government was prepared to implement it. here's what he said before many of the protests we saw erupted overnight. >> we're totally prepared to work it out very nicely. you see it at the airports. you see it all over. it's working out very nicely. we're going to have a very, very strict ban, and we're going to have extreme vetting, which we should have had in this country for many years. >> now, you can expect the president's executive order to be a big topic this morning on "meet the press." moderator chuck todd will have an exclusive interview with virginia senator tim kaine. chuck is going to join us for a live preview here in the studio at about 10:15. and there are two protests planned for today in response to that travel ban.

9:18 am
different points of view. that's the way he's run his businesses, i understand, for years, which is take the counsel of many different folks, weigh the option, and the decision is his. >> reporter: but as trump's team settle into place, white house veterans say turf wars are inevitable. >> it's highly unlikely there's going to be a power play going on because there always is. i don't care how you structure it or allocate the management of office space. even closets on the first floor next to the oval office are viewed as an office opportunity. >> reporter: already real estate is at a premium with the oval office the center of power. on one side, a small office traditionally for the president's personal secretaries and aides. on the other, a newly formed corridor of influence. the big corner office reserved for the chief of staff, reince priebus. the top deputy traditionally serving as the president's gate keeper, guardian of his schedule. next door, steve bannon.

9:20 am
to nice weather. adam said it was nice yesterday. i thought it was a little nice. it wasn't that bad. those winds died down earlier than i anticipated. as we continue through the day, i think we're going to start to see some snow showers moving into our region after about 4:00 or 5:00. i know we've got a few flurries out there right now. not going to amount to much. there is some snow showers out there right now. if you're headed to go skiing, lucky you. my goodness, they're getting lots of snow up there by wisp and into white tail. today, as we said, increasing clouds. we have some snow and rain showers on the way. then scattered lights snow showers tomorrow. temperatures a little chilly, stuck in the 30s. we've made it to the 40 degree mark here in the d.c. area. 45 is where we'll top out today. that's well above that freezing mark. again, we're going to see rain and snow showers this evening. most of the day going to be dry with the exception of the few flurries we're seeing out there right now. we'll zero in on them. you can see them coming through

[000:21:58;00] if there's one word that described it, it was this. chaos. >> trump misstated the size of his inaugural crowd and mischaracterized some of his past statements about the intelligence community. >> by the next day, he was making claims so far unsubstantiated that more than 3 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election. >> and he also started a war of words with mexico that sewed plenty of confusion about trade and our relationship with our neighbor to the south. >> trump used executive actions on imgrarks on health care, and on trade. but his skirting the truth meant that trump's message in his first week was very muddled. >> and it doesn't help the white house inadvertently started a meme that describes trump's pension for circulating information that isn't necessarily true. that term, alternative facts. and still to come, the biggest names in hollywood and trophies up for grabs.

and even though it only has half the headroom, half the closet space and a half bath, it's a full house to the wilsons. because they have fios, the only 100% fiber optic network with uploads as fast as downloads, their half house has full internet. cable only offers upload speeds that are a fraction of their downloads. now you might think it's a little odd that the wilsons have a half house, but they think it's a little odd to pay for uploads that aren't up to speed. get 150 meg internet with equal uploads and downloads, tv and phone for only $79.99 per month online for one year. cable can't offer speeds this fast at a price this good.

9:30 am
>> reporter: well, number was anywhere from 40 to 60. we don't know if they're still being held or not. but that judge's restraining order would have some effect on that. taking a look at the terminal here where the arrivals come, it's not unusual to see signs at an airport. of course, the signs here are a bit unusual. that one there is offering legal assistance to folks who may need help getting back into the country. this is of course since that restraining order was put on by that judge. take a look. protests were here yesterday. a big one yesterday afternoon. we're expecting another later today. those seven banned countries, people coming from those countries have had trouble getting to the u.s., either being detained on that end of the trip or turned around or detained once they get here. maybe 60 people were at one point detained here at dulles international airport, but the protesters came out in support of them and in opposition to that executive order. one of the people who were here yesterday was senator cory booker. take a listen.

9:51 am
temperatures around 40 right now. yes, that is above that freezing mark. well above that freezing mark. so we're really not looking at much accumulation tonight. but we will see some snow showers by the end of the day. also some rain showers. we're seeing some snow flurries out there right now. you can see most of our area -- man, if you're skiing, it looks good out there today. here we go. we've got a few snow showers, flurries coming through the northern shenandoah valley. then we also have a few snow showers that moved down to southern maryland, now over the bay. it's just some rain because of the warm air temperatures over the bay. so again, we'll have some isolated flurries as we continue through the morning. temperatures topping out in the mid-40s for daytime highs. more rain showers and snow showers after about 4:00 tonight. let me go ahead and take you hour by hour. this is 5:00. here are some of those rain showers down to the south. a few snow showers coming through. then it kind of breaks up. we could have one or two as we continue into the evening but
9:52 am
highly isolated throughout this evening. be slick tonight. just a little on the wet side perhaps for those areas that get a little snow and rain. temperatures will continue to drop overnight. about 32 degrees at 3:00, 4:00 a.m. that's when i think we can have some accumulation on the roadways with this snow coming through. again, that's right before the morning commute. we could have a few delays tomorrow. i'm not expecting cancellations. winds will pick up after noon tomorrow. that means some more scattered snow showers but no additional accumulation through the day tomorrow. so let's break it down. tomorrow's temperatures are going to be in the 30s. most areas seeing under an inch. a dusting to an inch of snow. that is it. it is going to be blustery tomorrow afternoon. so it's going to feel like we're in the 20s. leave yourself some extra time for that morning commute because there could be a few slick spots with that temperature under that 32-degree mark. blustery tomorrow afternoon. decreasing clouds as we get into tuesday. windy on tuesday. look at that temperature. i think we'll deal with that. 50 degrees. maybe a few rain showers north on tuesday. otherwise, pretty quiet as we
9:53 am
head through the week. we could have anotherst week. not confident on that just yet. we'll have to watch that. still a long ways away. be careful tomorrow morning. >> we'll see how your confidence builds throughout the week, lauryn. thank you very much. it is not the super bowl, but kirk cousins gets to hit the gridiron today. the next challenge for captain kirk as he enters the off-season. it's 53. 9: right when i walked in the door of bassett you could tell the quality was there. the quality of what we do is phenomenal. it's perfect. it's beautiful.
