5:00 am
sunlight happens, that's okay. if it's windy, that's okay. life has a flow, go with it. >> this is video you will not forget. surveillance cameras at a mississippi gas station capture the moment this speeding white car -- watch this. >> oh, my goodness. >> -- crashes into that post and goes airborne. it hits a sign, goes airborne, nearly flips, goes in between the gas pumps. the driver walked away without injuries. >> the woman was going 100 miles per hour. she's been charged with driving under the influence. more than 2,000 children separated from their families and in legal limbo. >> we saw a lot of kids in cages. they are scared. >> they betrayed us, she said.
5:01 am
they told us they weren't going to separate us from them. we never imagined it would be so long. >> the second straight day, no officials to explain how children will be reunited with families. >> it's chaos. there's no clear plan back in washington. >> this is "new day" weekend with victor blackwell and christi paul. i want to wish you a good morning and thanks for being here. chaos, confusion, conflicting stories. soon, we will try to get answers. more than a dozen lawmakers headed to facilities like these where children have been sent after being separated from parents and families are held in limbo. >> it's been almost three days since president trump signed the executive order to stop the separations he started. almost 1800 kids are waiting to be reunited with their parents.
5:02 am
a senior republican aide says members of congress do not know what is supposed to happen next. laura sanchez was at the white house with the latest on what the trump administration is saying. we are going start at the border with polo sandoval where members of congress are heading this morning. polo, good morning to you. what are you seeing and expecting to see? >> yesterday, a visit from republican lawmakers. today, democratic lawmakers are traveling to the rio grande, considered to be one of the busiest for border patrol ab apprehensions. prosecutors here have seen a 266% increase in the prosecution of illegal entry cases. we have seen them in the past, but not to these levels here. where do the numbers stands when
5:03 am
it comes to the children currently being held by federal authorities? at this point, the numbers showing 2,458 children under 13 years old throughout the country in the care of the department of health and human services. 482 of those are children ages 5 and under. important to add context to the number. the 2400 number includes children separated from their parents and also the unaccompanied minors. that has been the constant issue of border patrol agents in texas have been struggling with since we saw the issue in 2014, that massive rush. that is why this facility was built in less than a month to try to accommodate the growing numbers. as we heard yesterday from the border patrol's top chief in the sector, they expect the numbers to get close to those numbers again. they are prepared. that is what we expect to share with lawmakers as they arrive.
5:04 am
guys? >> we appreciate it. thank you. boris, now to you. it's been three days since president trump signed this executive order. is there any guidance forthcoming as to how to reunite these children with their families? >> reporter: hey, kristi and cli victor. they put out a statement saying they were spearhead thg reunification but didn't give indication of where the families would be held, if they were going to be further detained and what they are doing with families currently crossing the border. there have been meetings, according to sources to sort out how to reconcile the executive order president trump signed on wednesday with the administration's zero tolerance policy that created the family separations. sources indicate that the president, himself, has not been part of all the meetings. perhaps that's why we have seen
5:05 am
confusion, contradictory statements and statements that had to be walked back by agency officials. the president is trying to change the narrative. he's trying to set the focus away from this political and humanitarian crisis. yesterday, he took the stage at a press conference or presentation with the families of people who lost loved ones in the hands of undocumented immigrants. the president made the comparison between the pain they feel and the separations his administration caused. listen to this. >> these are the american citizens permanently separated from their loved ones. the word permanently being the word that you have to think about, permanently. they are not separated for a day or two days, they are permanently separated because they were killed by criminal, illegal aliens. >> reporter: two quick notes, the president muddied the waters
5:06 am
further after weeks of saying only congress could fix the immigration issue, yesterday, he told republicans to stop working on a deal on immigration until after the midterm elections. secondly, the president is headed to nevada in an hour or so. he's going to take part in a fund-raiser for senate candidate dean heller and he's going speak to the nevada republican convention happening today. victor and kristi? >> boris sanchez, we appreciate it. thank you. joining me now, rebecca berg. good morning to you. >> good morning, victor, thanks. >> you have members of congress headed to look at the facilities along the border. what is the prognosis of the president saying republicans stop wasting your time for legislative action on this? >> victor, republicans, in spite of the president's tweet are working through this on capitol
5:07 am
hill. will they reach a legislative compromise that ultimately becomes law? probably not. the reason they are going through this exercise on the house side of the capitol is because you have these moderate republicans, in particular, who come from districts where this is a major issue and they want to show that they can moderate and reach across the aisle on immigration and forge a compromise. they were threatening to bring a discharge petition to the floor of congress, to the floor of the house of representatives to force this issue on house leadership. this is a way to overt that nuclear option and find a way to bring republicans together to find a compromise. so, this is really to help the moderates in the house republican conference go to the voters at home to say i have tried to find a solution to the issue. the president's tweets don't
5:08 am
address it and that is at the root of the discussions on capitol hill. >> you mentioned vulnerable members of the party in congress. i want to play, in a moment, congressman mike kaufman, one of those running in november. >> absolutely. >> he mentioned stephen miller, the point person in the white house on this policy, but also the travel ban at the beginning of the administration, arguably, each rollout was fumbled. we remember the people at the airports protesting on how to execute each program. here is the congressman. >> stephen miller advised him on the border, on this recent problem in terms of tearing families apart. the lack of understanding of the significance of how that played out has his fingerprints on it. so, i think the president is in need of an adviser. >> calling for miller to step
5:09 am
down or be fired. is that plausible? he survives the other problems with his trying to execute immigration policy. what is his -- is he vulnerable now? >> as you know, the president doesn't take the advice of his own white house advisers, so unlikely he will listen to mike on personnel issues. i'm so glad you raised mike kofman in particular. he is one of these republicans, in a very competitive district. cnn rates his district as a toss up and not only a toss up district, but among them the highest proportions of daca recipients and daca eligible children. this is a district where immigration, in particular, is going to be an issue that hits home for people. people have a personal
5:10 am
connection to the issue. you can point to a number of toss-up districts in california, florida, new jersey. that's why you see moderate republicans speaking out. their careers, essentially are on the line and they are feeling the political heat on the issue. >> rebecca berg, thank you for helps us understand if next week is going to start with less chaos or confusion than the last one ended. again, thanks. >> thanks. one immigrant mother's desperate search for her son, amid the confusion. we'll introduce glou a moment. dozens of organizations are reaching out to help families separated at the border, including the project. the president joins us next to tell us what they are doing to help. the european union hits back, putting tariffs on 3 billion worth of u.s. goods. how are you going to feel that impact? we'll talk about it.

5:15 am
well, despite the administration's claim that 500 families have been reunited at the border, the status of thousands more is unclear this morning. one immigration lawyer representing families inside a detention center says this reunification could take a month. >> my understanding, there's no process set. they are in the process of figuring out the procedure. i was told it might take a month for the reunification to happen. the people inside the jail had no idea that was a possibility. they are getting information from the news. they had no idea. >> in the meantime, health and human services has 2,000 children in their custody. ed spoke to one detained mother, that is desperately trying to find her son. >> senior? >> reporter: the call came from
5:16 am
south texas. on the line, an unidentified immigrant from honduras, separated from her son 11 days ago after crossing the rio grande illegally. i asked her how she is feeling. not good at all, she says. it's a trauma we will never forget. all the mother's here, as well as the kids. the truth is, we never imagine third-degr ed this would happen. i asked how they were separated. they betrayed us. they told us they weren't going to separate us. we never imagined it would be so long. they have denied immigrants have been misled in anyway. >> there are things you can do to help out with the children. >> reporter: from inside her south texas law office, jody goodwin is trying to find 22 children. she represents 25 undocumented immigrants that have been
5:17 am
separated from their children two weeks. >> most don't know where their kids are? >> none of them know. i don't know where their kids are. they have tried calling the numbers provided by the government, but that hasn't worked. three of her clients have spoken to her children. >> it's not a system you punch in a parent's name and pop up a child's name. it doesn't exist. >> highly frustrating for them. >> very frustrating. each time i see them, you know, they ask, any news? do you have any news? >> there have been a number of emotional reunions between separated families, there are many families struggling to connect over the phone. the department of homeland security says there is not a publicly accessible data base to check the shelters. dhs says the adult detention centers have phones where the parnlts can call their children. the immigrant on the phone says
5:18 am
she is in the wing of a detention center with 70 other mothers trying to communicate with their children. i asked her what message she would like to world to hear. she says, president trump, for one second, put yourself in our place, the only thing we want is for them to give us our children back. government officials say the reason the children's data base isn't widely accessible is security concerns. there are hundreds of undocumented immigrants detained for weeks. i spoke with one central american man who has been detained nearly three weeks. his greatest concern is worrying about the anxiety, uncertainty and confusion that his daughter must be experiencing because of this separation. cnn, brownsville, texas. >> in the midst of this confusion, organizations are reaching out to families that have been torn apart.
5:19 am
one is the texas civil rights project. their president joins me now. thank you for being here, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> we are hearing hhs does not have a publicly accessible data base when thinking of pairing children back to their parents. the government says 500 van paired back. do you know how those 500 got to their parents? >> no. no, we have no information about that. as you mentioned, for the past six weeks, our lawyers have been on the front lines in south texas working with families. to date, we have interviewed 381 parents and we have no knowledge that any single one of those parents has been reunited with their children, nor have we been given information about the process for reunification. >> can these children help you find their parents? we're trying to understand what you are dealing with right now. >> right.
5:20 am
right. it's an excellent question and, unfortunately, only the government has it has answer to that. the reality is, these families were separated, the parents were put into immigration proceedings while the kids were put into detention. i presume that the government has some easier mechanism than we do to put everybody back together, but, unfortunately, that information has not been shared with us. >> i want to listen here to another gentleman who spoke with brooke baldwin from the texas civil rights project. she was talking about how are you going to identify the people and get them together. listen to what he said. >> one of the things we heard earlier on, one of the ways they were going to keep track of getting together is they would take a picture of them, a parent and a child and use that as an identifier for the future. >> any of these pictures that he
5:21 am
says were taken as an identifier to help reunite these families? >> no. again, we have seen no concrete steps that the government is taking for reunification. i'll know that our organization has gotten an outpouring of concerned citizens contacting us and people volunteering dna tests and data base help and all sorts of assistance. that's wonderful, but i think the really important thing to remember is that the trump administration manufactured this crisis and they have the tools and the information to get us out of it and they have to do it quickly. they have to come forward to the american people with a plan to reunite these families quickly and safely. >> do you have a sense of how many families are still coming across the border and how many children are being added to these detention centers?
5:22 am
>> so, we don't have a sense of how many families are coming over. what i can tell you is that in court on thursday, there were 17 parents separated from their children. that happened right before the executive order, but none were prosecuted, all were released. now, we don't know what happened after release and how they are, if or how they are being reunited with their kids. their criminal charges were dropped. on friday, in court, there were no parents there, which suggests the administration stopped prosecuting families claiming violence or parents claiming violence. we don't know what's happening to people now. >> marco rubio visited a detention center in florida and he said he was not allowed to speak to the children, but workers were doing the best under the circumstances. i believe that you have seen these detention centers. are you confident these kids are
5:23 am
safe? and why would a senator, we understand if they don't let the media in or something, but why not allow a senator into the detention centers to talk to the kids to have a better understanding of what needs to be done. >> i don't know why they wouldn't let in a senator. as i mentioned before, this entire process has been extraordinarily opaque. what we are seeing on the border, in addition to the heart break and anguish of the families is massive confusion and chaos. there's been no explanation given. i think that what you are describing is part of this pattern. i don't know if it's a lack of a plan or i don't know if processes are hidden. i don't know what that is. i do think this is why we all have to demand more transparency and immediately. >> we have had a lot of people say there doesn't seem to be a plan. a senior republican said that to cnn a couple days ago. i want to review the president's
5:24 am
tweet real quickly. he said republicans should stop wasting their time on immigration until after we elect senators and congressmen in november. democrats are playing games and have no intention of doing anything. we can pass legislation after the red wave. is there time, in your opinion, to wait until november? we are five months out from that. to have some sort of solid immigration plan in place. >> let's be clear, the trump administration has a political interest in distracting the american people from this human rights crisis. in reality, we have a pre-existing system for dealing with families fleeing violence. we have an asylum system and immigration courts. that system was already processing these families. what's new and what was completely in the hands of the trump administration and is still is this zero tolerance
5:25 am
policy whereby, families are not put into the immigration system, they are thrust into the criminal system and treated like criminals. that put into play the family separation and now thoughts that maybe will be building detention centers to hold families for the long term. none of this is necessary. the trump administration can simply stop it. >> we appreciate your insight. thank you for being here. >> thank you. the european union is hitting back at u.s. tariffs, putting tariffs on $3 billion of u.s. goods. feeling the impact of the trade war, midwest farmers. what makes this simple salad

5:28 am
when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. my favorite role so far? being a non-smoker. no question about it. talk to your doctor about chantix.

5:30 am
hope saturday morning has been good to you so far, although it's only 8:30. >> 8:30 is good enough. the european union put tariffs on $3 billion worth of european goods. >> joining mexico, china and canada, hitting back at trade moves made by the trump administration. caught in the middle, farmers in the midwest. >> reporter: dark clouds over an
5:31 am
island soybean field. it might be a message in that. >> i'm worried some. i'm concerned. >> reporter: what about hog farmers? >> anxious times, no doubt about it. >> reporter: in april, china slapped 25% tariff on imports of american goods. >> the pigs you are talking 200 to 300 milli$300 million impact. >> reporter: that's just china. now soybeans. it's locked in a trade war over intellectual property. >> we get punished, we, as agriculture, so to speak. >> reporter: iowa is hit har hard, a top soybean producer and hog bproducer. did you vote for president trump? >> yes, i did. >> reporter: right now, it is
5:32 am
hard. chinese motives are veil. mexico now, blatantly targeting tariffs at states like iowa 10% on pork. iowan congressman, now among the most vulnerable incumbent republican in the midterms. >> we'll get more vocal as it gets more painful. we are going to try to be patriotic. >> reporter: is there a point iowan farmers abandon trump? >> yeah, there is a point. >> reporter: where is that point? >> gosh, i wish i knew. i wish i knew. we might be there. >> reporter: the president pledged farmers. the details remain unclear. >> a lot of stuff he's done is good. right now, with the trade negotiations going on, ask me in six months because it's painful right now. >> reporter: right now, he stands to lose $500,000 this
5:33 am
year alone. >> now, president trump is threatening to put a 20% tariff on cars imported from europe. that's in response to the european union's tariff on $3 billion worth of american goods, which is in response to president trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum coming from europe. here to talk about what this could mean, this back and forth, former trump economic adviser, welcome back. >> good morning. >> now we have the threat on tariffs, a threat of tariffs on eu autos. i'll get it together. cars coming in from europe and the president tweeting, build them here. >> the largest bmw plant is in spartanburg, south carolina. what is the president talking about and trying to do? >> you are right, a lot of bmws and foreign cars, toyota and so
5:34 am
on are made here. that's a great point. look, i listened to the segment on what's happening in iowa. that was a state carried by donald trump when it was carried twice by barack obama. one of the ways donald trump won those states is his trade message of getting tough with china and other countries was very popular with mid western voters. ultimately, what donald trump would like to see is more of them buying wheat, cotton, pork. donald trump believes the trade laws have not worked in america's favor. i happen to be more free trade oriented than he is. i think he has a point. a lot of countries imposed higher tariffs on american products than we imposed on them. >> you are right, the president won iowa on his economic message. do you think he would have won iowa if the formers knew it was going to cost them real dollars
5:35 am
and cents? >> i think this is going to work out. china is going to make major concessions in the next few months. they are going to have to. then we are going to come to sensibility with respect to the europeans, canada and mexico. let's not forget, at the end of the g-7 meeting -- >> what do you see right now that says freer trade? the tariffs on the long list of items doesn't look like freer trade. the president is now adding the tariffs. >> good point. right now, you are seeing a tit for tat situation where the countries are retaliating. that's not going to work for them. they need access to american markets. there's two situations. i have a lot of uneasiness of picking a trade fight with europe and candidate. i'm all in with getting tough
5:36 am
with china. my point is, it's a fact these european nations have higher tariffs on american products. donald trump says that's not fair. a lot of american workers agree with him. why should we open up our markets and when we try to sell our pork and cotton and bourbon and blue jeans across the ocean, they put up big high trade barriers. that's not fair to the american worker. >> the way you are phrasing it, there were no tariffs on imparts here in the u.s. the president talks about the dairy tariff in canada. the u.s. has tariffs on peanuts and tobacco. it's not as if the u.s. didn't have tariffs before. >> that's true. hold on, though. >> go ahead. >> that's true, we have tariffs. my point is their tariffs are two to three times higher than
5:37 am
ours are. all the countries have value added taxes, 10% or 15%. tariffs on american goods are paid at the border. americans are at a disadvantage. at the end of the g-7 meeting, donald trump put on the table, why not go to zero tariffs. get rid of them. that's the ultimate free trade solution. we are not moving in that direction. i'm hopeful it comes down to lower tariffs, not higher. >> i don't know if let's stop shooting each other, that argument is supported after you fire a shot. >> let me ask you this question, victor. >> we have to wrap up quickly. >> we have a large trade deficit. the point that donald trump made, that resinated with voters. the current situation isn't working for us. year after year after year, we are running the trade deficits. countries like china continue to
5:38 am
steal intellectual property. how is that free trade? >> that is an argument many people who disagree with the tariffs agree with you on. the country has to get a handle on the theft of intellectual property in the u.s. is the trade war the best way to get to china when you are attacking the eu and canada and mexico. >> good point. >> especially when nafta is going on. we have to wrap it there. >> i agree with you. i would like to see isolating china. >> we have to wrap it up there. >> take care. >> you, too. >> ahead, a car goes airborne right into a gas station. you are going to see it all, and more. we'll tell you what happens. stay close. try new alka-seltzer pm gummies. the only fast, powerful heartburn relief

this week cnn anchors have been telling extraordinary stories of people in organizations making a difference. a special series called "champions for change." did you know, here in the united states, 41 million people have to choose between putting food on the table and paying for other basic necessities. >> that's a reality that is unacceptable to our dr. sanjay gupta. he wants to know what can be done to solve the problem. >> i didn't believe it. it starts with these adorable children. four out of five kids in this classroom are food insecure. not sure when or if they will

5:46 am
