tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  June 24, 2018 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT

1:00 pm
journey along with you, tonight on united shades of america on cnn. we have more ahead in the newsroom sand it all starts right now. >> all right, hello again, everyone, and thank you so much for being with me this sunday. we begin with breaking news, a teenaged boy has been reported missing from a detainee facility in brownsville, texas. >> reporter: we don't know a whole lot at this point. right now, my colleague is working to get more information right as we speak on the ground. but police in brownsville tell polo that a 15-year-old has now been entered into the missing children date -- database. they say he ran away from the facility, i want to read a statement that southwest key gave to cnn just a few moments
1:01 pm
ago. as a licensed child care center, if a child attempts to leave any of our facilities, we cannot restrain them, we are not a detention center. if they fry to leave, we talk to them and try to get them to stay. we called local law enforcement and continued to work with them. police did tell p orollo that t have been searching the lakes and the streams around the area and they have not found any sign of him. they have put him in that missing child's data base. i'm going to be going on a tour of a safacility tomorrow mornin. we're going to go inside a tent city you have heard them talk about to see what it is like inside one of these facilities. this will be the third one i have been on at this point, there was a protest here this morning, most of them have put pressure on the trump administration to speed up these reunifications and stop this
1:02 pm
process. >> diane gallagher, thank you so much. in the meantime, the day yochao continues at the u.s.-mexico border, thousands of children are still waiting to be reunited with their parents as politicians battle out what will happen next and that includes senator elizabeth warren who was at a central processing center. warren left that facility that this is what she said. >> there are children by themselves. i saw a 6-month-old baby. little girls, little boys. there are mothers, with their babies and with small children, family units are together if it's a very small child. but little girls who are 12 years old are taken away from the rest of their families and held separately or little boys.
1:03 pm
and they're all on concrete floors in cages. there's just no other way to describe it. >> all of this coming after the donald trump administrati trump administration releases a plan to reunite servve severed families. white house correspondent boris sanchez is at the white house with the latest from the president on this. there is some mixed messaging still. on one hand the president reversing the practice of separating families, but still intensifying his rhetoric. >> reporter: the president in his speech to the republican nevada convention specifically mentioned a hint as to why he's continuing with his rhetoric. that was part of the reason he was elected. perhaps not a surprise, and today on twitter, he called on
1:04 pm
all immigrants to be deported without any sort of legal proceeding, a step we have not seen from this president before. previously he's used divisive rhetoric onni ismmigration. he talked about this idea if you showed mercy to these immigrants, they would take advantage offense you, but if you're tough, then you would be accused of not having a heart. here's some of his tweets. he writes, quote, we cannot allow all of these people to invade our country. when somebody comes in, we must immediately with no judges or court cases bring them back from where they came. our system is a good immigration of law and order. most children come without parents, our immigration policy is very unfair do all of the people who have come through the system legally or have been waiting online for years. and the president arguing that
1:05 pm
the system should whebe based o mer merit. they're calling these immigrants invaders, last week saying they were infesting the country. they're as a nuisance to the united states and secondly, the idea that he's not really sending a clear signal to congress as to what he wants them to do, juchtdst a few days, he -- this morning he's tweeting that democrats should be reporting that they should have to fix this. not exactly clear how house republicans specifically want to mo move -- one of them is going to come up for a vote this week that is, if it's not postponed
1:06 pm
for a third time, fred. >> boris sanchez at the white house, thank you so much. so the trump administration says it's working on a better da database to link parents with their children. one republican senator says he is confident the government has a handle on the situation. >> we know where every single child is, this is an issue that's gone out there, somewhat in some of the other media, that's not been responsible to this. it would be the asump th sumssu the administration has lost track of that. these are career professionals that work with the dhs. these are not political appointees, these are career folks, they know where every child is to be able to connect them to the parent or the relative that came. many of these children, we don't know if there was a parents or not. so trying to make sure that we're connecting the dots on this. >> so what ask the plan to reunite these children with their families? walk us through what has been
1:07 pm
released about this plan. >> reporter: yeah, fred, so let's start from the beginning, when the decision was made to separate these families which came as a result of the prosecution referrals that we have talked about now for weeks, what happened was once the parent was sent to the department of justice custody, the child was basically redesignated as an unaccompanied minor, and that's why they were handed over to hhs. once the decision was made, basically they were subjected to the same procedures and policies as a child who came here by themselves even though they were parent was with them and is now in government custody. now that that's happened these kids are in the care of hhs, their parents once they come back from detention, are in the custody of -- now it's the government trying to figure out how did they get those parents and children back together? and you can see that that's not really going to be easy given that they can't release that
1:08 pm
child to the adult detention center. so the adults are continuing to wait until the end of their immigration court cases which will decide what they will be deported or stair in the country. if they are about to be departed, the government is working on a facility where they can bring the children before they are departed and it's also up to the parent whether they want to be departed with their child. and if the parent is released, they can apply to hhs to be a sponsor to that child. they need to be checked out by hhs verifying of course that that is the parent and that process can take weeks. and in a lot of americans minds, it's as if the parents would go off for criminal charges and the families would be detained together. that's not what's going to happen, they either need be reunited before the parent is deported or before the parent is granted release. >> there's no planning as to how
1:09 pm
long it would take too say, process, or deliver on the court case of any number of these adults, right? >> well, it does happen fasterifaster i if the adult is continually detained, but there are court dockets for those who are in detention, and there are court dockets for to who are out. it does speed up the court proceedings a little bit. but there are of course -- >> weeks? months? >> reporter: it's probably more on the side of weeks than months and months than it would be if they were out. there's also paper work that immigrants can sign sort of voluntarily waving that they will be deported and it's easy to imagine that some of these immigrants are at least being offered the opportunity if they want to speed things up to go ahead and siege thogn those pap be voluntarily departed as well.
1:10 pm
>> there are those who voluntarily con sended -- how many cases are there like that that remain. thank you very much, appreciate it. >> reporter: thank you. >> so will immigration be the defining issue for both parties heading into the midterm election. plus dem nonstrators take t the streets again to protest the death of an unarmed teen abler. as mourners gather this hour to pay final respects. it's all about the double ii's with xiidra...

1:15 pm
house. take a listen. >> the children can be taken care of quickly, beautifully and immediately. the democrats forced that law upon our nation. i hate it. i hate to see separation of parents and children. >> if you're smuggling a child, then we're going to prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you probably as required by law. if you don't want your child to be separated, then don't bring him across the border illegally. >> are you intending for parents to be separated from their children, are you intended for them to be separated? >> that's offense. why would i be for a policy that does that? >> when you prosecute the parent for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away. we want to keep families together, very important, i'll be signing something in a little while that's going to do that. but we're going to keep the families together.
1:16 pm
i didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated. >> the american people don't like the idea that we're separating families. we never really intended to do that. >> so intentions are clear, or are they not? where will the trump administration immigration policy go this week? here now to discuss, cnn political analyst and washington bureau chief for the chicago sun times, good to see you both. julian, what does this demonstrate that there are so many different messages and inferences from a policy practice, not a policy, not a practice, but back pedalling all that from this administration in one week. >> well, there's been a lot of zigging and zagging, but overall, i think the administration's position is actually pretty consistent, they want to take a hard line on immigration, undocumented immigration, they're also pushing to curtail legal immigration, this has been a
1:17 pm
theme since the start of trump as politician, and i think they're continuing to followthrough. all they did was pull back from the family separation policy. the rest right now remains intact. and i don't think he's moving away from that, just listen to the speeches. >> and lynne, while the president had the executive order ending the separation of families, there's still not much clarity on bringing separated families back together again. >> i think this is gotten lost in the discussion. but the trump administration has a big question and the competency in which they even carried out their own policies, they just think, this administration could not even devise a system, once it wanted to start the stepped up zero tolerance policy, making sure that if you separated children from parents, that you got the equivalent of a receipt and a
1:18 pm
chain of information so that each child is tagged with something, with proper information so that no matter where they go, they could easily be put together with their parents and visz verce versa, yt don't see this essential piece of recordkeeping,competency, is there's so much uproar, you can't have the debate of this policy reilike it or not, when there were no proper procedures for separating parents. >> and the travel sbban, when i was announcement sand executed, it was clear that there wasn't a clear procedure, everyone wasn't on board and it was a mess. so here we are again and it's a year and a half later. >> with the difference that you have children in these facilities that don't seem properly fit to take them or
1:19 pm
their devices. or we're taking taxpayer money in new york, chicago and other places to put kids here and that's certainly not the kind of thrifty approach even to government administration that you would expect from an administration and a president who brags about his administrative competency. >> a lot of observations from people even in the entertainment industry. comparing the immigration situation to the internment camps that his family was put into in the united states during world war ii. take a listen. >> it is repeating itself, but it has gone to a new low with donald trump. when we were incarcerated, our families were intact. my parents were with me. but in this case, it's come to a chilling low where babies are torn away from their mothers and
1:20 pm
placed in separate internment camps and now that donald trump has rescinded his zero tolerance policy, the children are being scattered throughout the country making it even more complicated to reunite the families, so this is a new low in american history. >> jjulian, will it be recorded as a new low for american history? >> it will certainly be a new low, it will fall in the basket of things the country has done that don't really sit well with our democratic values and which people look back on and say i can't believe we allowed that to ham. you're seeing that reaction right now. this is part of what's energizing many democrats. at the same time, we have to remember, the overall policy is still in place in terms of cracking down at the border and it has a lot of support from
1:21 pm
republicans. so i don't know if we're moving away from this moment as dramatically as some think. >> and lynne, president trump is continuing to bash democrats, you know, despite his backtra backtracking the immigration issue, tweeting this morning, democrats, fix the law, don't resist, we're doing a far better job than bush and obama, but we need strength and security at the border, we can't have all of these people breaking into our country, strong borders, no crime. a consistent mantra from what we heard from president trump on the campaign trail? >> it is, unfortunately, it is not true. democrats and republicans, i thiit was in 2013, they had a deal in the senate, they couldn't get nit house. so when you hear the word compromise in this discussion, take a weary step before you buy it, because what the compromise is just trying to find an
1:22 pm
agreement on republicans, if you truly wanted a solution, like it or not, you have to bring enough democrats in the house to the table to make up for the various factions among the republicans in the house no matter what the deal is, and the same goes for the senate, of the majority matter, that's a true compromise, he's negotiating in a sense with himself. he's not recognizing that there are people, if you want the votes, to do it. there's only two numbers that count in this discussion, 218 in the house, 60 in the senate, get to those numbers you have a bill. >> and this legacy is shaped by highs and lows. >> i think many people will put in this a category like the ban early in his administration that
1:23 pm
really reflect some animosity to certain parts of the population that appeal to very hard line politicians in the electorate. but republicans control the house and the congress and to blame democrats right now is not really accurate. this is part of president trump's legacy and no one else can claim it. >> julian, lynne, good to see both of you, thank you. the immigration crisis also has hollywood stars speaking out and also getting involved. last hour i spoke with west world star evan rachel wood about what she is seeing in texas. you had an opportunity to visit a shelter, were there children, were there parents inside that shelter? what did you see? >> i haven't been able to get into one of the detention centers, but i did visit a shell terry where families are resting
1:24 pm
while they're being processed and sort of waiting to hear what their fate will be, there were families there, children as young as 2 years old, some as old as 8. i played with them for hours and they were smart, funny, and intelligence and very desperate to play. their parents were very scared, i didn't notice any -- there was only one mother around, and it was mainly men and boys. so i don't know where the women are. they were scared and tired and they needed suppliesupplies, so dropped off supplies to them this morning. >> what did they tell you they anticipate is next? what did they know what was around the corner or what are their worries about what they
1:25 pm
don't know that's a around the corner after this processing? >> i don't speak the language, i mean we really just communicated with our eyes and with gestures an i really spent most of the time playing with the children. it seemed like that's what they needed in that moment and the parents needed a little bit of relief so that's how i spent my morning, and they definitely needed medicine, a couple of children were sick, and so anybody that can donate shoes, socks, underwear, medicines, you know, basic human needs that you and i need on a daily basis is what they're needing right now so that's what we did this morning. and we're waiting for the services for antwan rose, after demonstrators took to the streets for a fourth night

1:31 pm
lamo lamont, you've been detailing about the protests, tell me about your experience last night. >> last night, i had a real good experience of protesting. just being there and being on the front line, just -- on the side i had a great feeling about myself. the rain came down, i didn't think about stopping. but it was just a real good experience going out there and being able to do that. >> as a football player, you know, with opinion state, you are the face of, a face of the campus, of the football program. do you feel like you are taking a risk by also being an outspoken activist? >> yes, i do agree with that,
1:32 pm
because not a lot of people have the same perspective i have. a lot of people would think that i -- everybody has their feelings, do think that -- i do speak out, but i do have a voice and i won't be silent. but i stand up. there is that part of people who -- under the video outpost. >> you've taken an active stance against police brutality as a whole, putting out a youtube video, in fact, in support of nfl players kneeling during the national anthem. we want to play a portion of that. >> this isn't just a flag protest or a national anthem ban, this is what our country was born on, something the
1:33 pm
president has lost sight of. i'm with kap, i will sit for injustices. >> and this shooting of antwon rose and so many other occurrences across the country, were really the impetus of the taking to the knee. but we know that it's also been, you know, misconstrued, the intention has been misconstrued, it has been applied to different circumstances across the country. why have you made it a point to try to underscore what you believe the meaning behind the taking to the knee is all about? >> because what our country was born on, what our flag--vigilan flag--vigilance, perseverance, i don't understand how you can say the justice part, we're not
1:34 pm
getting all the time. the worst thing that has happened, the people who are killing these innocent people are on paid leave instead of getting fired. i feel like something needs to change. i feel like -- that's why i'm out there, that's why i try to do what i can do. >> lamont wade, thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. still to come, as the u.s. supreme court prepares to rule on several key cases including the controversial travel ban, one looming question could change the future of the court. will there be a retirement? we'll discuss next.

the u.s. is getting ready to receive remains of troops from north korea. about 100 wooden transport cases are being sent to the dmz in preparation for the exchange. most of the remains are believed to be u.s. service members who died in the korean war. u.s. foreign affairs correspondent elise labbot joins us now, president trump has been talking about the return of those remains, so is this part of the agreement with kim jong-un? >> reporter: that's right, that came out of that joint statement between president trump and kim jong-un on their june 12th summit. this will be one of the more tangible sides of the agreement between president trump and kim jong-un. there's a lot of principles in that statement, but we haven't
1:47 pm
seen any concrete actions in terms of the denuclearization between president trump and kim jong-un that president trump talked about in that statement. so you have about 200 sets of resolvi resolving -- remains set to be turned over to the united nations. the u.s. believes that a lot of those could be the remains of u.s. soldiers, they could also be some of the allies that fought los angelalong with the during the korean war. the u.s. believes as many as 5,000 missing remains from the korean war could be u.s. servicemen. so that could be in the coming hours, there hasn't been an official time, but the equipment is ready on the dmz, the demilitarized zone, for those remains to be repatriated. >> and that agreement appears to have come from that summit,
