cup or about the size of a light bulb. so a puppy stuck in a hole for more than 30 hours is okay. >> good. >> we're happy to tell you. toffee fell into a 50-foot hole while playing with her foster family. rescuers tried lowering ropes, nets, even duffel bags to try to get her out. she's also deaf which made things really difficult for them. eventually, though, they were able to pull her out. they tempted her with sardines. >> food always works. >> and she wasn't hurt, believe it or not. ♪ this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good saturday morning to you. protests, rallies, marches are all planned this morning. hundreds of events across the country to demand an end to the trump administration's
immigration policies. >> demonstrators are pushing for an end to family detentions and the reuniication of the thousands of families separated. but the process has been slow. as of yesterday more than 2,000 kids are still in the government's care rather than with their parents. >> president trump is trying to shift this conversation on twitter this morning. you see a pair of tweets. the president trying to turn the debate into one about the validity of i.c.e. our team of reporters is covering the story from every angle. we start with diane gallagher in mcallen, texas. diane, what are you expecting? what are you told will happen there today? >> reporter: victor, you can really call this the center of it all. that's because just down the road from me in mcallen is the busiest processing center on the southern border. i toured it a couple weeks ago. the pictures from this facility are some of the ones that have galvanized people across the nation of those children inside those cages with their parents, those mylar blankets around them. them not knowing when they are going to be separated until the
point it happens. now i can tell you that in terms of the actual protest here, it's likely going to be quite modest in comparison to what you see around the countries in larger cities. part of that simply due to population but also in the time that we have spent in these border states and these border towns, we have seen weekly, if not daily protests outside processing centers, border patrol stations and the facilities that are keeping the children themselves. people who are demanding not only the reunification but for them to speed up the reunification and asking the government to let them know what the original plan was to begin with. there's a lot of frustration in these communities here. and they want to express that a little later today at about 3 1/2 hourks, we should see the to let them know they are not happy with the way this is being handled nor the way these families are being treated. >> diane gallagher, thank you. cnn correspondent paolo sabd
sandoval is in new york where protests are getting ready to start there. >> the message will be simple here. something we've watched and heard for the last week in previous demonstrations and that is end this longstanding practice of separating families and the end of president trump's zero tolerance policy. the same message i heard seven days ago when we saw the small but passionate groups of protesters. here today, this group will be coming together, various pro-immigrant groups and unios.s they'll be addressing that particular message. going back to what we saw a week ago, saw how passionate people are. it will be interesting what that main message will be today from the crowd as they come together in the big apple. >> we appreciate it. thank you. >> cnn's jessica schneider joins us from washington where the main protest is scheduled to start in hours. what are the numbers you're hearing about potential support
that this rally is going to get? >> we're expecting thousands out here, victor. and it will all be anchored right here at lafayette park. it will kick off at 11:00 a.m. this here it's really a symbolic spot. lafayette park just across the street, the north lawn of the white house there. so just across the street from the white house. of course, the president himself not here in washington this weekend. the president is up at his golf club in bedminster, new jersey. but still the thousands who are expected here are expected to get that message to the president that they do not agree with his separation policy. they do not agree with his immigration policy. so all of this will kick off at 11:00 a.m. on this stage. we're expecting some of the featured speakers. we're expecting the actress america ferrera. also the "hamilton" creator lynn manuel miranda. so they'll all gather here at lafayette park for that rally at 11:00 a.m. and then they'll take their protest to the streets.
they'll march up pennsylvania avenue headed toward the capitol building and then gather at the national mall trying to get their message not only to the president but also directly to congress as well. victor and christi? >> jessica, thank you. dozens of civil rights organizations are involved in the protests, including amneftsy international, the anti deafination league, the southern poverty law center. moveon.org is one of four lead partners sponsoring the events. our next guest is moveon.org's executive director of civic action. thank you for being with us. first and foremost, what did you see? what did you hear that prompted you to take this on? >> oh, goodness. well, you know, my good friend who is one of the champions in congress on this issue actually called me early on a saturday morning less than two weeksing -- exactly two weeks ago today and said what we are doing here? we need to be in the streets. we spent the weekend scheming together along with our close
friend as parents, as people, as women. we couldn't stand by and just allow this horror to happen. so we put out a call on monday, less than two weeks ago, thinking maybe we might get a couple hundred protests around the country and we've been overwhelmed and so honored to see the response. there will be 750 rallies and protests and marches around the country today. not just in our biggest cities, although, yes, there, but also in lubbock, texas, and wichita, kansas, and a 700-person town in minnesota calls lanesboro that has an event. they're meeting on the local ball field. this is something different than we've seen in a long time. it's not left and right. it's right and wrong. people are standing up and saying families belong together. we need to end this horrific practice of separating children from their parents. we need to end the internment camps for families being planned on military bases as we speak.
and we need to end this zero tolerance policy or zero humanity policy it might be better known. we can be better than this as a country and today i'm so inspired to see all the people who will come out to make this happen. >> a lot of people are watching and thinking we need to secure our borders. can you just give smus claus so clarity here. this is more a protest for human rights, for humanity than it is political. would that be safe to say to some degree? >> i think if you asked someone on the street, is it a political question whether we should tear babies out of their mother's arms? they'd say that's a moral question. and this moment is a moment of moral outrage. we are calling for the end of family separation, for the reunification of the thousands of families which have been brutally separated. we know the longlasting traumatic effects on children of being forceibly separated from their parents and we'll hear today in washington from a holocaust survivor who was separated from her parents in that era from a survivor of the
japanese american internment camps. and others who have experienced that trauma and can speak to it firsthand. this is a moral moment. >> those stories really wake people up maybe, if they aren't quite sure what they think necessarily about a particular issue or they are able to see it in a different light. with that said, because you've got 750 protests, and you were able to do this in two weeks, it tells -- it says a lot. illustrates a lot about the support you have. what is your most realistic expectation of the impact that you expect will be had by the end of the day? >> any one protest, anyone knows that showing up on the streets doesn't change the policy in the here and now or doesn't pass the new law or elect a new candidate to office. what it does do is it -- today, together, wearing white, people around the country are going to be wearing white when they show up. they'll be bringing water because it's hot in many parts
of the country. they'll be bringing their sunscreen. when we show up today, what people are doing is sending a resounding message to all of our decisionmakers, to our fellow americans, to everyone that we are here. we are not going away. we're standing up together to say that families belong together. and free. and we're making sure that this moment of horror in our country doesn't continue on our watch. not in our name. >> have you heard from any lawmakers? >> we've had tremendous leadership from representatives like jayapaln others. i'm hopeful this is a moment where our elected officials will see the grassroots explosive energy around the country and meet the moment. i should say, though, that the policy that is creating this crisis could be ended tomorrow by president trump. it's a crisis that he created. he could undo it. we don't need the forceable separation of children and their families. we don't need endless and
indefinite detention of families. we don't need the zero tolerance, zero humanity policy at our border. he created these policies. he could end them tomorrow. maybe from the golf course if he so chose. he could end those policies and end the horror and trauma he is inflicting on families in the united states, in 2018, right now. >> anna, we appreciate you being here today. thank you very much. take care today. >> see you on the streets. we're getting new images of the deadly scene in annapolis where a gunman shot and killed five people who worked for the "capital gazette." a video captured the moments when police raced to evacuate those workers from the building. watch. >> hands up! hands up! to the right. to the right. here, here, here.
>> put your hands up. straight across that parking lot. keep your hands in the air for me. straight to this guy right there. >> this way. over here. straight ahead. >> is anybody hurt? >> keepi your hands up. >> this way. this way. >> more new video now. this is of the suspected gunman jarrod ramos being carried away by police in handcuffs. now ramos appeared in court friday. the judge cited his potential danger to the community. the widow of one of the victims, rob hiaasen spoke to cnn. >> rob hiaasen was my best friend, and he was that for a handful of others. you don't need a million friends, just really good ones. and he was always there for people. and a confidante when folks needed it.
and someone ready with the wry little joke at just the right time. >> hundreds of people turned out last night for a massive candlelight vigil honoring the shooting victims. and this morning, today's front page of the "capital gazette" is here. the headline reads "suspect swore oath to kill." and we'll talk more about this in just a moment. was able to take care of my family while i was overseas serving. it was my very first car accident. we were hit from behind. i called usaa and the first thing they asked was 'are you ok?' they always thank you for your service, which is nice because as a spouse you serve too. we're the hayles and we're usaa members for life. see how much you could save with usaa by bundling your auto and home insurance. get a quote today.

asked its allies to cut oil imports from iran by november. president obama appointed two supreme court justices in his two terms in office. now with anthony kennedy's retirement, president trump wants to get two before his first round of midterms. this weekend, president trump says he will -- or possibly will meet with potential supreme court picks. he plans to announce his choice in a little more than a week. on the list, five people with at least one woman. the president says they will not be asked about abortion or gay rights. >> are you looking for somebody who would overturn roe v. wade? >> well, you know, it's a great group of intellectual talent, but we really, you know, they are generally conservative. i'm not going to ask them that question, by the way. that's not a question i'll be asking, but it is a group of very highly talented, very brilliant, mostly conservative judges.
i won't be discussing that because i think it's inappropriate to discuss. so i won't be discussing that. >> joining me to discuss, carrie sarahvino. she also is a former clerk for justice clarence thomas. welcome to the show. let's start here. the president says he will not ask potential picks about roe. essentially the president doesn't have to, right? the list from which he's working has already been vetted by conservative activists, the federalist society has weighed in. are there any concerns based on the names and faces you're seeing about the pro-life bona fides? >> i don't know how many of them would rule in this case. and that's true even many of the supreme court justices. we know their approach to the law and their judicial philosophy which is look at the text of the law and take it very seriously. look at the constitution, honor
that. abide by that. but i think the president is exactly right. you should not ask them how they'd rule in a specific case whether it's roe v. wade or any other. they need to have a philosophy where they are approaching each case fairly and not with prejudice. >> the president said in that snippet from air force one that he won't ask about lgbt rights. he won't ask about roe. but i want to play a couple exchanges after he was elected. part of his cbs interview where he's asked about those two issues. watch and we'll discuss. >> do you support marriage equality? >> it's irrelevant because it was already settled. it was settled in the supreme court. it's done. >> so even if you appoint a judge -- >> it's done. you have these cases have gone to the supreme court. they've been settled. i'm fine with that. >> are you looking to appoint a justice who wants to overturn roe v. wade?
>> here's what's going to happen. i'm pro life. the judges will be pro-life. they'll be -- >> what about overturning -- >> there are a couple of things. they'll be pro-life. having to do with abortion, if it ever were overturned, it would go back to the states. so it would go back to the states -- >> some women won't be able to get an abortion. >> it will go back to the states. >> they'll perhaps have to go to another state. >> so on the issue of roe v. wade the president there has nuanced, some would say muddled answer. on same-sex marriage it's already been decided. it's settled law. first on same-sex marriage. are you satisfied with that answer from the president in the context of choosing potential next pick? >> the president is right. the case has been decided. and each of these judges is -- whoever the nominee is, he or she is going to be looking at each case on its merits and deciding it based on the law and text of the constitution. so, you know, i think it's very
unlikely in today's world that we'll see that issue come back again so soon before the supreme court. this is mostly really scare mongering. people going, oh, no, everything is going to change. when you look at justice gorsuch last term, he voted most any of justice with justice kennedy and vice versa. what we've seen coming from this president so far is actually a justice that mirrors as closely as anyone on the court justice kennedy who he is replacing. i predict this next nominee will be a gorsuch 2.0. someone who is going to have a similar approach because that's what we've seen in the last one. someone who, again, it's the same qualities of the experience they have, the fairness in the listening to both sides. that's something that characterizes all of the potential nominees on this list. >> why is the same-sex marriage decision, which just celebrated its third anniversary a couple days ago, settled law and roe v. wade is not potentially? >> i'm not sure what the president was thinking when he
decided to characterize those two differently but, obviously, as a constitutional matter, they stand in the same place. the same principles would apply to both cases. >> your group has a new ad out that tells people to contact their senators to tell them to stand with whomever the president announces next monday. who are you focused on here? potentially those republicans who we heard from susan collins, she said he's looking for someone who respects precedent on roe v. wade or potentially those trump state democrats, donnelly, heitkamp, manchin who looking to november may have to consider voting for a second time now the president's nominee to the court? >> well, i think as senator collins voted for justice gorsuch. what she's also said is we want someone, above all, who will be abiding by the constitution and laws. that's who you'll see out of this nominee. in particular this year, it's important to look to those ten
democrats in red states that went for trump and are up for re-election. they have to decide, am i going to vote for someone i can tell just by looking at the list, this will be someone qualified, experienced, talented and who has broad bipartisan appeal because they'll be a fair and even-handed judge? are they going to vote for that person or align themselves with the far extreme of their party to try to draw those votes? i don't think -- that may play well in california and massachusetts. i'm not sure that plays as well in indiana and montana, west virginia, missouri, those kind of places. >> carrie severino, thanks for being withes. another u.s. ambassador just quit the state department. reportedly over president trump's policies and comments about european allies. james millville jr., the ambassador to estoneio, announced his resignation yesterday. he's a career diplomat and is the third ambassador in the last year to exit the state department early.
millville's resignation coming amid growing tensions between europe and the trump administration ahead of next month the nato summit. it only adds to the current list of vacancies in the state department. there are 60 open ambassadorships right now. the president has nominated people for 19 of those spots. still to come -- massive protests are planned across the country today against president trump's immigration policies. congresswoman jayapal will be rallying again today despite being arrested thursday for unlawfully demonstrating. she's with us next. and a comedian prank calls the white house and ends up talking to president trump. and that's not even the craziest part of this story. e toothpastes prevent bleeding gums. if you spit blood when you brush or floss you may have gum problems and could be on the journey to much worse. help stop the journey of gum disease. try parodontax toothpaste. ♪

so glad to have you back with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. hundreds of protests are planned across the country today against president trump's immigration policies. look at the map. this is where they're located. social justice groups evare demanding the administration end detention policies and all family separations and reunite families previously separated. the main event marchs through the streets of d.c. and ends in front of the white house. >> lawmakers are among the thousands protesting the trump administration's zero tolerance immigration policy. our next guest was 1 of 575
people arrested thursday at the capitol for unlawfully demonstrating. we have washington state representative pramila jayapal with us. thank you for being with us. i want to start with you, if i could, the president this morning is tweeting and slammed the democratic push to abolish i.c.e. "i.c.e., you are doing a fantastic job of keeping us safe by eradicating the worst criminal elements. so brave. the radical left dems want you out. next it will be all police, zero chance. it will never happen." so with that said, i want to clarify what your position is and what your hopes are. do you want to abolish i.c.e.? >> here's the thing. right before i.c.e. was established, which is a new agency. it's only been established in the last many years, there was enforcement of immigration laws. and after i.c.e. is changed as an agency, there will be enforcement of immigration laws. what we've been saying is i.c.e. has become a rogue agency.
it has no accountability. no transparency. it takes the hundreds of millions of dollars that the federal government gives to i.c.e. and it actually contracts out to private, for-profit contractors who have no accountability to the standards that are supposed to be maintained, to all of the conditions that we as congress set. so the position that we have been holding is we need a redo of where these enforcement functions lie. and we need to build into any new structure the ability for i.c.e. as an agency or whatever the new agency is to be accountable back to congress. and i think that is very important because we need a humane agency and an agency that is going to utilize taxpayer dollars well instead of contracting out to for-profit private companies that literally are just about making money but taxpayers could be paying a lot less for this. >> so where do you think enforcement needs to lie, as you
said, in regards to keeping the border safe in a humane way? >> well, the bill that we are in the process of drafting now actually sets up a commission and says let's look at these alternatives for how we can get these functions done in a way that is humane because the american people have been outraged at finding out that this is how we're holding people. and isis turned into a mass deportation force. it's proving to be counterproductive for local law enforcement in cities across the country who are saying one of the key things we need to do to keep communities safe is to build trust with all the members of our communities. and i.c.e. is coming into our communities and making our job difficult. police chiefs, law enforcement officials across the country have been continuing to say this. so we will create a commission that will actually look at the alternatives for how we want to do this. and with keeping in mind that we want it to be humane, cost
effective and we want it to be accountable and transparent, something that i.c.e. is not today. >> you're getting ready to get to the street again today in the protests. after your arrest on thursday, i'll read to our viewers one of your tweets in part. june 30th, we're putting ourselves in the street again. how do you anticipate it will be different today than it was on thursday? >> well, this has been a momentum building effort. almost three weeks ago, i went to the federal prison just south of seattle where over 200 immigrants from the texas border had been transferred. and i heard the heartbreaking stories of mothers being separated from their children, in detention over a month. hadn't seen their children. and i started telling these stories about why they had left and who they were and heartbreaking about how they wept. didn't even know where their children were. that has transformed into o
outrage across the aisle. republican, democrat, independent. this is beyond politics. people have seen the united states government is putting people in cages and asylum seekers in prisons. they realize this is not who we are. so this protest two weeks ago when i called the organizers and we together kind of formulated the idea of an opportunity for people to really come out into the streets, mass outrage. this is keeping it at the front of the agenda. it's letting the president know that he can pick up the phone today and end this zero tolerance, zero humanity policy that he implemented. and it is making it clear that we as americans, whatever our political beliefs, have certain rights and wrongs. that's what this is about. you don't put kids in cages. you don't separate breastfeeding babies from their mothers. you don't put asylum seekers in prison. we're calling for an end to that today. i think it is about the pressure.
the continued pressure and the outrage that people are going to be channeling into the streets today. i'm inspired by every single american and every small town and big city that is coming out today to say this is not who we are. we need this policy changed immediately. >> i want to ask you about maxine waters. she has advocated for pressure as well. she got some pushback based on the way she did it. how is the pressure you want to exert to see changes different from hers, if at all? >> we have a long history of peaceful, nonviolent protests in this country. and you've seen it from everything from the vietnam war until today. and i think that it is very important that we think about freedom of speech, freedom of protest. the ability for americans to say when they disagree with the government. that is what distinguishes america from other authoritarian, totalitarian regimes. so this today people coming out into the streets, wearing white
for the suffragettes, for peace, for the ability to reunify families and keep families together. it's essential to really putting our hands, so to speak oth, on e moral arc of the university. >> congresswoman jayapal, thank you. do take care out there because it's going to be hot. >> it's going to be hot. bring your sunscreen, water and we'll see you in the streets. >> thank you so much. this is a genuine security situation at 35,000 feet. president trump makes a phone call from air force one to someone he thinks is a u.s. senator. turns out he's a comedian. how could this happen? a former member of the national security council who understands the security behind all of this joins us next.

you know what i'm saying? >> yeah. well, we will talk to you about it. >> how did this happen? how did it make it all the way to the president? here is national security analyst samantha who served on the national security council under president obama. welcome back. obviously, something that should be in this process to vet these calls either was not there or did not work because he got through to the president. can you identify what that is or tell us what the process is to make sure the person on the other end of the line is who they say they are? >> this is funnier than a "saturday night live" episode if the national security risks weren't so big. there are so many hoops that anyone goes through typically to get on the line with the president. so, for example, i've been on air force one. you send staff with the president specifically for issues like this. so if a call comes in to the white house. now, obviously, a call from a u.s. senator doesn't go through the white house switch board.
it will go through the situation room or chief of staff's office. but a call comes into the white house and that call is typically routed to air force one and to a staff member with the president typically from the chief of staff's office or the office of legislative affairs. in this case, who tries to vet who the call is coming from because, keep in mind, there are a lot of prank calls that come into the white house every day. but good staffwork means you're checking to make sure that who is on the other end of the line is authentic and also that the call is worth the president's time. >> i'm going to ask you about something else the president is tweeting gh ining about this mo. that is i.c.e. do not worry or losior spirit. you're doing a fantastic job of keeping us safe by eradicating the worst criminal elements. so brave. the radical left dems want you out. next it will be all police. zero chance. it will never happen. this is coming as i.c.e. agents sent a letter to hhs secretary
and in that letter, they were advocating that this portion, this element of i.c.e. is dismantled because it's essentially sounds like they're distracting them from their jobs of transitional criminal organizations getting them and facilitating cross-border crimes that are impacting our communities. how significant is it that you've got people in i.c.e. advocating to dismantle a portion of it? >> it's quite significant but this is the president doing a distraction campaign again. he uses phrases like the woft criminal elements again to describe, i think, illegal immigrants when we know just as a matter of fact that immigrants do not represent a higher percentage of violent crime in the united states. i would much rather see the president tweeting about things like gun violence which killed another five people this week. that's what he should be focused
on. and the fact of the matter is that any resources that i.c.e. is devoting to separating children from their parents at the border to this child abuse that's being continued at our border, they are not spending on things that are actual threats to the united states like transnational criminal networks or the things that are killing americans when they are coming across the border. the president is focusing on the wrong enemy. that's what the i.c.e. staff was getting at. >> the president is focusing, you say, on the wrong enemy. but there are several high-profile democrats who are focusing on i.c.e. as well saying it needs to be re-imagined or reorganized. do you have a view on that, the prioritizing of i.c.e. and its functions and if there should be significant changes? >> i think there's always room for healthy debate on how various government agencies can do their jobs better. and i.c.e.'s mandate has -- was defined several years ago. their responsibilities may have
shifted. and particularly in light of the crisis that we're having at the border, all of the government agencies that were part of this process to take children away from their parents should be looked at. at the end of the day, this was an executive branch decision by the president of the united states to pursue a policy. let's take care of that issue right now. re, night these families and then review how these agencies could function better. >> samantha, always good to have you. >> thank you, sam. coy wire is here as well talking about soccer superstars everywhere you look apparently today. >> exactly right. trending number one on bleacher report.com it says get hyped for the world cup. the knockout stage is here and it's win or go home time for soccer's two greatest players messi and ronaldo. both in action today. a preview coming up.
