and get a $300 pre-paid card. comcast business. beyond fast. a historic moment. eu leaders endorse theresa may's brexit plan that happened just in the last 30 minutes. one of latin america's biggest football rivalries is postponed after fans violently attack the other team. and the u.s. president wants asylum seekers to stay in mexico until their claim to process, and mexico says its stance is on mr. trump's plan. newsroom starts right now. brexit, we've been talking
2:01 am
about it for some time, as of 30 minutes ago, has passed a historic milestone. it was formally accepted by the european union. eu leaders gathered at the summit in brussels are expected to meet soon with the woman you see here, british prime minister theresa may. >> and for ms. may more difficult work lies ahead. the agreement has been condemned back in the united kingdom but the british prime minister says it is the best deal the you can c u.k. can get. she'll now have to lobby. following the story is cnn's erin mclaughlin. you were the first to tell us the news. how significant is this moment historically? >> reporter: this is historic moment, george, and i have a copy here of the counsel conclusion section one. it says the european counsel
2:02 am
endorses agreement on the withdrawal of the united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland from the european union. this is in reference to the 585 page legal document that is binding that they have now endorsed that essentially sets the terms for the separation from the u.k. -- before the u.k. from the european union. and section 2 of the council conclusions says the european council approves the political declaration setting out the future relationship between the european union and great britain and northern ireland. this was something negotiated rights up until really the 11th hour of today's historic summit. a political declaration setting the terms for the future trade talks between the u.k. and the eu. in section 3 of the council conclusions it gives thanks to
2:03 am
michael barnier, the unity of the eu member states really being seen as a critical in the negotiating process. we heard earlier from the president of the european commission jean claude-yunker who expressed his sadness this day had to come. >> i'm upset because leaving the european union is not a moment of -- but a moment of deep sadness. >> reporter: now, in the last few minutes or so we have seen the arrival of british prime minister theresa may. she is now expected to meet with
2:04 am
the eu 27 to discuss the next steps. george? >> so this went relatively smoothly, almost seeming to be a rubber stamp moment. the eu 27 coming together and again approving the deal as it stands now. but as theresa may heads back to the united kingdom there is an uphill battle certainly to get the british public onboard but also to push this deal through parliament there. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, george. this may have been somewhat of a rubber stamping exercise for brussels, but that is certainly not the case for theresa may as she takes this to british parliament where the arithmetic is not in her favor. we heard from boris johnson call the deal a historic mistake. members of her own party speaking out saying they will not vote for this deal. wave heard from the labor party
2:05 am
as well as the democratic unionist party saying she won't vote for this deal. there are lots of questions now as theresa may moves forward with this historic agreement and whether or not she can get it through parliament. it's looking highly unlikely. and if that does not happen, it is an open question, pretty much anyone to guess at this point at what will happen next. >> eren, live in brussels, thank you for the reporting. so here's what's next for brexit as it stands now. it now goes to the british parliament where theresa may does not command a majority. no one knows whether lawmakers in the u.k. will ultimately green light this deal or send everyone back to the drawing board. if british lawmakers agree to it the european parliament would then decide whether to give its blessing. whatever happens britain is set to leave the european union
2:06 am
march 29th next year. earlier ms. may tweeted an open letter explaining brexit. this is what she said. "as prime minister of the united kingdom i have from day one been determined to deliver a brexit deal that works for every part of our country. for england, scotland, whales and northern ireland. for our overseas territories like gilbralter, and also for the crown dependencies. ryan, yes history has been made there. and to hear theresa may in that letter it sounds everything gung ho from here, but i don't think that's the prevailing mood there, is it? >> that's absolutely right. theresa may poured her heart and soul into that letter. she has to. you've seen that in recent days
2:07 am
where she's been appearing on talk radio, giving newspaper interviews, she's really laying it all on the line. they knew this day was coming and they knew they have never enjoyed the prospect of brexit. there's a tinge of sadness when you actually have to put your names and signatures on the dotted line. >> and no one really knows at this juncture, now that they've made this step a little over 30 minutes ago, what it all means. someone says i believe it sounds like she's trying to be everything to everyone and it's really like nothing for no one at this point. >> reporter: yes, but we have to remember that theresa may is a survivalist at heart. she's always been able to weave and negotiate her way through difficult territories. she did that when she was the interior minister and she's done it from the day -- at the moment
2:08 am
the numbers are stacked against her. she doesn't have a parliamentary majority for this deal. she's attacked from within her party, outside her party and also the people who prop her up in government, the democratic unionist party in ireland. she's likely going to fail at the first hurdle, the first time she puts this to parliament. there will be a lot of pressure on those mps to fall into line behind theresa may. >> doesn't she have a few chances as she takes us back home, ryan? take us through that. >> reporter: yeah, that's exactly right. what we always hear is there's a deadline and then there's a new deadline that props up because things often happen at the 11th hour. in the case of the u.k. parliament it's really seen widely that the 21st of january is the deadline theresa may will
2:09 am
need to have made progress. otherwise parliament could then attempt to reseize control over the process and effectively say theresa may you failed at your negotiating job. we're going to take over either by appointing a new government or intervening ourselves directly. theresa may will probably take this to a vote probably in the second week of december, and if she fails she may come back for another round in the new year. >> and what if we get to march when this is the big deadline, if there is a deadline here. ryan, what if we get there and there is no agreement? >> reporter: well, then that is where the preparation plan comes into play. the eu has failure advance preparations and particularly those coastal states on the continent portrayed most heavily for the u.k.
2:10 am
the u.k. as well has been preparing but they're not as advanced in those preparations. you'll probably see some safety arrangements with things like raveiation. it's unlikely flights will somehow stop. but where you'll see real problems are things like border crossings for goods and the way to avoid it may be some kind of extension to the article 50 negotiation in order to achieve this brexit. you'll see cool, calm heads trying to find a way through those chaotic waters if the vote is successful in the british parliament and you haven't seen them try and flip the deal back to the parliament again. >> no one wants to see that happen, but who knows at this point. as you say theresa may is certainly a workhorse, so we'll wait and see what she can do when she arrives back home. thank you so much.
2:11 am
we appreciate your insights. >> thank you. and now to paris where it is morning. just hours after violent anti-government protests played out in the french capital. thuns of demonstrators took the streets of paris on saturday. some lit fires and setup barricades. the protesters are angry about skyrocketing fuel prices. cnn's jim bitterman is in paris and spoke with us earlier about what sparked the protests. >> it began a week ago. these were the protests brought on, what we call the yellow jackets, these are the vests all motorests are required to have in their cars for safety reasons, and it's very simple for people to join this movement just by going to their car and getting out their yellow vest. so a number of people have. according to the interior minister there were about 106,000 protesters today.
2:12 am
that compares to 250,000 or 80,000 last week. so in some ways the government had a success in that there weren't so many protesters out there. but in other ways the violence of this protest today was unmatched anywhere along the line. in fact, one of the most violent demonstrations the champs elises, and they were in fact 130 people arrested across france and about 42 people arrested in paris. so a violent day in paris. it seems to be over for now, but in fact we'll have to see how well it plays with the demonstrators going forward. jim bitterman, cnn, paris. >> jim, thank you. and the french president emmanuel macron lashed out at the protesters on twitter saying this. quote, thank you to all of our law enforcement for their
2:13 am
courage and professionalism. shame on all the people who assaulted them, shame to those who voluntarily assaulted citizens, and reporters, shame on those who tried to intimidate our elected. there is shame being felt in argentina because the biggest football rivals will face-off now sunday for the final match of south america's most coveted championship. that is after a day of violence from one team's fans. it forced the game to be postponed. people were already in the stadium. >> and on saturday river play fans threw projectiles at the rival team's bus inside the stadium. the team tried to shield themselves from the rocks and shattered glass. >> but they were injured. the captain required hospitals for their injuries. but despite the chaos a team members say the match organizers were pressuring them to play anyway. >> translator: the truth is this
2:14 am
is a situation where their obligating us to want to play the game. pablo, our captain just came back with a patch on his eye. they're obligating us to want to play this game. >> after the bus attack fans in argentina were frustrated and confused about whether the final team match would go on saturday as planned. >> near the stadium, and he described the intense atmosphere. >> everyone around boeka and where the stadium is located is absolutely disappointed the way today went. there was an instance of the bus coming through an in an extremy crowded place and it felt those things were poorly organized. at that point there was back and forth, complete madness. it was delayed, and eventually the game was called off. and i think the biggest thing to
2:15 am
mention here is because they're supported by 70% of the people in the country you really had people coming from hundreds of kilometers away just to witness this match. i would also remind everyone that on the previous match because of the rain it had be stopped and they had to delay it again on sunday. this will be the second delay on the second leg of the final, which is the final one which two teams are going to play two legs. and above all it's the biggest rivalry in argentine let alone south american history. this one is as dramatic as it could possibly be. >> we will see how the game plays out later on sunday. well, the future of the migrant caravan from central america is in doubt. confusion over u.s. and mexican policy leaves thousands in limbo at the border. the details ahead here.
2:16 am
step up to the stage here. feeling good about that? let's see- most of you say lower a1c. but only a few of you are thinking about your heart. fact is, even though it helps to manage a1c, type 2 diabetes still increases your risk of a fatal heart attack or stroke. jardiance is the only type 2 diabetes pill with a lifesaving cardiovascular benefit for adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease. jardiance significantly reduces the risk of dying from a cardiovascular event... ...and lowers a1c, with diet and exercise. let's give it another try. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration. this may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, or weak upon standing. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, tiredness, and trouble breathing. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of ketoacidosis or an allergic reaction. symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, and difficulty breathing or swallowing. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems.
2:17 am
other side effects are sudden kidney problems, genital yeast infections, increased bad cholesterol, and urinary tract infections, which may be serious. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. so-what do you think? well i'm definitely thinking differently than i was yesterday. ask your doctor about jardiance- and get to the heart of what matters. - mwith the best ofodi, the prespressure cooking andsps, air frying all in one. with our tendercrisp technology, you can quickly cook food, juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. go from fresh to deliciously done in half the time. which means it may become the only thing you use in your kitchen.

2:19 am
just a short time ago into the today's summit. eu leaders are also committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure an orderly withdrawal, and they urged the british parliament to sign-off on the deal as well. mexico's incoming government denies that it reached a deal with the trump administration regarding migrants seeking asylum in the united states. "the washington post" reports that the purported deal would require the asylum seekers to stay in mexico while their cases are processed. it would effectively end what donald trump calls u.s. catch and release policy. right now thousand of migrants are waiting to file claims. the city's mayor has requested humanitarian aid to deal with the influx of people. on the other side of the border u.s. law enforcement officers are currently patrolling the area and conducting security exercises. in the meantime the u.s. president has repeated his threat to close the country's southern border.
2:20 am
our sarah westwood has more now on his reaction. >> reporter: after weeks of ratcheting up the pressure on mexican leaders to do more to help the u.s. with its illegal immigration problem at the southern border the president is hinting that he may have struck a deal with mexico that could force asylum seekers to wait on the mexico side of the u.s.-mexico border until their claims are processed by u.s. courts. the president tweeting on saturday, migrants at the southern border will not be allowed into the united states until their claims are individually approved in court. we will only allow those who come into our country legally. other than that, our very strong policy is catch and detain. no reletesing into the u.s. and then it goes onto say, all will stay in mexico. if for any reason it becomes necessary we will close our southern border. there is no way that the united states will after decades of abuse put up with this costly and dangerous situation.
2:21 am
the president has threatened to close the southern border before, though it's unclear how exactly he would do that. and the president has already attempted to make changes to asylum policy through executive action. just a few weeks ago the president attempted a proposed rule change that would have required migrants to present themselves at legal points of entry in order to request asylum. they would no longer be alieued to request asylum if they were caught trying to cross the border illegally. but of course a court blocked that executive action from moving forward. that's something the president has fixated on as he spent the week here in florida for the holiday. this deal would represent a major overhaul to the asylum system as currently anytime a migrant sets foot on u.s. soil they are eligible to request asylum, and often they are released from detention while awaiting a court decision on their case. that could take months, and the president has referred to that practice as catch and release. it's what he's described as a
2:22 am
loophole he wants to change, and he wants to pursue a policy that either forces those asylum seekers, again, to cross into mexico or continue to be held by immigration authorities until their cases are processed. sarah westwood, cnn, west palm beach, florida. >> let's talk more about this now with amy pope. she served in the national security counsel during the obama administration, and she's a senior fellow at the atlantic council. good to have you there. let's start with the last point that was raised in that report that we just heard, the u.s. president wanting migrants to either seek asylum at official ports of entry or to be prepared to be detained if they try to enter the country by any other means. how does this square with a ruling by a federal judge just recently temporarily blocking the government from denying asi asylum to those crossing the border at illegal ports of
2:23 am
entry. >> there are real questions whether this puts the united states in conflict to obligations of existing treaties, as well as the united states -- the people coming from honduras are fleeing some of the most violent cities in the world. the murder rates are high. there are very few opportunities for police to engage. they face real danger. we shouldn't assume that women women and children are walking from their home countries to the united states because they have something better to do. this is real danger that they're fleeing, and the united states has an obligation to evaluate their claims. >> i want to get to this other story that we're following, the incoming mexican government deinooide denying this report with "the washington post," keeping in mind this new administration doesn't take control of mexico
2:24 am
until december 1st. so do you take this denial at face value or could this simply be a way of kicking the can until they officially take over government? >> well, i think this reflects the fact that immigration in mexico is also a political issue. we learned when i was in the obama administration that working with mexico, partnering with mexico was the most effective solution to managing migration along the southern border. but that means that one needs to treat mexico as a partner. it's not effective to put any sort of agreement or partially formed agreements out into the public eye. it needs to be coordinated, and it needs to be done in recognition that mexico is a player here. you can't denigrate mexico or its government at the same time that you want them to work with you. >> the incoming interior secretary spoke on this. she said that mexico does not have any plans to become a third safe country for migrants, essentially that mexico won't be a waiting room.
2:25 am
clearly this in response to the pressure that government is under from both migrants and the u.s. government. >> there is room for mexico to play more of a role here. there's no question. one of the key issues that we faced when i was in the last administration was working with mexico to increase its own capacity to evaluate people who were seeking asylum or seeking refuge in mexico. but the truth is their capacity to do that is still fairly limited. so any solution needs to be done in conjunction with the united states, putting increased political and actual pressure on mexic mexican resources will backfire on the president and is not a long-term or sustainable solution here. it will further politicize the issue and really exacerbate the problems both countries are facing. >> this goes back to what we both talked about, again the federal courts have made a decision here, and the president did tweet recently migrants will need to stay in mexico until their asylum claims are
2:26 am
processed and would need to close the border he says if necessary. all of that seems in line with this alleged deal between the two nations. >> the question of closing the border is a very loaded one. when the united states relies heavily on the transportation that's going back and forth across that border, trade, people, business, the impact on the united states would be extremely detrimental, and taking any kind of action like that would be disproportionate to the effect of anyone seeking asylum. i mean, we're talking about couple of people who are desperate, fleeing circumstances we can't imagine in the united states. so taking action that would further harm the u.s. and mexican interests does make a whole lot of sense here and is not the way i would advise this president to take this threat. >> amy pope, we appreciate your time. thank you. >> thank you. the u.k. is now one step
2:27 am

2:31 am
quarters to meet with those ministers after the deal was accepted. we'll take you live to brussels in just a momentch. a usual second match of the football championship in argentina was postponed after one of the teams was attacked on saturday. fans through projectiles at the rival team's bus on the way to the stadium. two boca players were treated in the hospital. carlos was detained in japan after a nissan investigation. he's accused of hiding millions of dollars in personal income and using company assets for his benefit. the ebola outbreak in the democratic republic of congo is growing. now 184 people have died from ebola since august. officials are concerned it could spread to neighboring countries.
2:32 am
we are monitoring events in brussels. history in the making, and we are hoping to soon see and hear from the british prime minister theresa may now that the european union has accepted the brexit deal she negotiated. after gaining that endorsement she arrived at eu headquarters and went inside to meet with those heads of state. >> the prime minister may feel some relief that the agreement was accepted, but most of the eu leaders expressed sadness about the situation. now mrs. may, of course, faces the daunting task of trying to get a skeptical parliament to go along with it. something many mps have said they won't do. our erin mclaughlin first broke this story live for us, that the leaders had accepted this deal and she joins us again now. quite a historic day, but one that many people didn't want to see happen, erin, but here we
2:33 am
are. >> reporter: it's definitely the sentiment being expressed here in brussels today, natalie. essentially what the european counsel has done is formally endorsed via counsel conclusions to documents. one of the documents is 585 pages long, a legally binding document, the so-called divorce deal that lays out the terms for which the u.k. will leave the eu in march of 2019. the second document endorsed by the eu 27 is a political declaration laying out the terms of the future relationship for the future trade talks expected to happen once the u.k. leaves the eu. also included, though, in the council conclusions were nods to eu's chief brexit negotiator thanking him for his efforts throughout this process.
2:34 am
but it was a somber tone today at this council as the eu leaders arrived. we heard from the president of the european commission jean claude-yonker say this was a sad moment for the eu and a tragedy. we also heard from the dutch prime minister say we're all losing in this process. take a listen to what he has to say. >> nobody winning, we're all losing. but given the complexity, it's acceptable. >> reporter: theresa may has arrived here at this summit. she went straight in, did not stop to give any remarks at the press point. we understand she's now briefing the 27. according to eu officials, they are discussing next steps. natalie? >> and we know when she goes back to the u.k. that december may be a pivotal month. what is she up against, erin?
2:35 am
>> reporter: yeah, well, the next steps in all of this, natalie, are really fraught with uncertainty, whether or not theresa may will be able to get this deal now endorsed by the eu 27 through parliament is an open question. and looking at this point to be doubtful when you consider what played out yesterday in belfast. we heard from boris johnson at the party that's really seen as holding the keys to her government. really critical seats for her. boris johnson telling that party conference that the brexit deal before them is a historic mistake and essentially arlene foster, the chair of the eup agreeing. it's that kind of concern we're hearing from remainers and democrats alike, concern this
2:36 am
will get past westminster, and if that happens it's really an open question in terms of what happens next. theresa may crossing this critical barrier in-terms of getting approval from the eu 27 for this deal, but getting it through westminster really is entirely another matter. >> right, a pivotal step today but still much uncertainty. thank you, erin mclaughlin live for us in brussels. we're learning more about the christian missionary who lost his life while trying to convert one of the world's last remaining isolated tribes. >> john allen cho wrote in his diary he tried to communicate with the members of the tribe on the tiny island even after he was shot. we get more about it from cnn's pablo sandoval. >> reporter: this is one of the oldest and most isolated tribes in the world and authorities say they're responsible for last week's killing of missionary
2:37 am
john allen cho. this archive footage provides some of the few existing images of the tribe that live in complete isolation on the tiny island of north sentinel. according to officials cho illegally paid fisherman to take him to the ipland hoping to convert the tribe to christianity. according to journal entries left with it feisherman and shared with "the washington post," the 26-year-old wrote i hollered my name is john, i love you and jesus loves you. he was then reportedly shot at by a member of the tribe with an arrow. the next day he made a second attempt but never returned. the fisherman he hired later reported seeing his body buried on the beach by tribe members. his last entry reads you guys might think i'm crazy in all
2:38 am
this, but i think it's worthwhile to declare jesus to these people. god, i don't want to die. in 2006 the same tribe killed two poachers who had been illegally fishing near their island. the island believes the native's decision to remain isolated should be respected. >> somebody comes, they have no idea what he's coming for and why. i think it's far more self-defense than it is murder. >> reporter: on social media his family wrote, their son loved god, life, helping those in need and had nothing but love for the sentinelese people. all they can do is wait and find out if and when their son's body will be recovered. now in afghanistan with a record drought some families are forced into unthinkable decisions. sell their child so the rest of the family can eat. that exclusive story is ahead.

2:43 am
than 450 people are still unaccounted for. the camp fire has destroyed more than 18,700 structures, and that includes almost 14,000 homes. off the coast of massachusetts at least 170 sea turtles have died in the past three days due to extreme cold weather. the environmental organization that recovered them blames climate change. the group says it managed to rescue 54 cold stunned turtles, which you see here. these turtles will be slowly warmed up before their released to the wild. the northeast mahas been plunged into colder than normal weather. >> there's some hypotheses and assumptions but currents showing the shifting jetstream patterns. the jetstream drives our weather
2:44 am
patterns across the world, so what we're seeing is warmth bre being brought further north and cold being brought to further parts of the south. the northeast has been plunged into very cold air for this time of year. we're coming off a cold thanksgiving in many locations, records broken and in fact smashed by over 20 cities alone. and that of course what they're saying is relating to the death of these sea turtles. so the cold air in place across the northeast. temperatures this morning, it is chilly out there. it is below where we should be this time of year, but not as cold where we were a couple of days ago. if you really want cold you just need to head to the midwest and the plains because we have a full on blizzard today and still in the middle of autumn, but it is looking more like winter. there's the storm evolving. we have over 30 million
2:45 am
americans under some winter weather advisory, warning. and that shading of red is a blizzard warning. parts of kansas, and northwestern sections of missouri, that's where we expect conditions to be worse today. if you're traveling along interstate 70 or 80, these thoroughfares are very popular. this is an area that is heavily trafficked, and unfortunately with winds at 35 miles per hour, heavy snow dropping visibility under a quarter of a mile for three hours or more we meet the definition of a blizzard. look what it's gotten in its eyes, chicago. morning commute there is going have a heavy snowfall. and 6 to 12 inches of snowfall for that region.
2:46 am
