4:01 am
good sunday morning to you. thank you for sharing your time with us here the state department is telling cnn this morning the trump administration to cut off aid to three central american countries. >> >> el salvador and guatemala and say they are setting your migrant caravans to enter the u.s. >> we were paying them tremendous amounts of money and we are not paying them any more. because they haven't done a thing for us. >> the government of honduras responded blaming the move on, quote, contradictory policies from the u.s. >> custom and border protection says several detention centers are well over capacity. the city of brownsville, texas, for instance, is averaging 300 people per day being released by federal authorities. we have a team of cnn reporters covering the story this morning. cnn correspondent leyla santiago
4:02 am
in austin, texas, and sarah westwood is near mar-a-lago. but natasha chen is live for us in mcallen, texas. good morning to you, natasha. what are you learning this morning from where you are? >> good morning. we are at the hidalgo port of entry mere mcallen. 30, 40 miles from us we were talking to the city of brownsville city manager yesterday about the fact that they have any seeing customs and border protection drop off migrants for the past couple of weeks in their area just because of the overflow problem. the facilities exceeding capacity. at first they were seeing about 50 people a day for the first week and a half and then the city manager tells me that recently that is really ramped up. they have been averagie ining 3 people per day. the city of nonprofits are helping these people contact familiar members in the u.s. and
4:03 am
get bus tickets to go on to other parts of their journey. this is a very challenging problem for them. at the same time president trump is threatening to close the border if mexico does not stop all illegal immigration coming from the south side and a real issue for people living in border towns like where we are. we met some folks yesterday who were going back and forth at this port of entry here on regular business and going to see their families. they say a lot of them work on one side and live on the other. here is one man carlos flores who we talked to and he was on his way to a dentist appointment. >> there is a lot of old citizens of the united states that go over there for their medication being cheaper over there than over here, insulin. whatever it is. i just saw some open from here getting their fillings at the dentist the other day. imagine a lot of people will be toothless after this. >> reporter: he is an american
4:04 am
truckdriver. he told me he cannot afford health insurance in the united states and why he goes over to mexico for the dentist and buys his family's medications over there because they are cheaper. a lot of people are concerned fountain border closes that would deeply impact their daily lives. >> natasha chen, thank you. >> he makes several campaign stops through his home state of texas, democratic presidential candidate beto o'rourke is focusing heavily on border and immigration issues. leyla santee ago iago is follow candidate and live in austin this morning. >> reporter: good morning. beto o'rourke waking up also in austin back in texas where he is really comfortable. his home turf. he has his eyes set on the nation's capital, specifically the oval office. he had three stops here for the official kickoff of his campaign, but let's back up just a little bit. remember, just two weeks ago, he
4:05 am
announced via social media that he wanted to have a presidential bid in the 2020 campaign. he went to iowa. he went to wisconsin, nevada, south carolina and a lot of the questions that he had driving the conversations in those town halls now driving the issues that he is talking about in these speeches, including, of course, no surprise, immigration. listen to what he had to say. >> let's remember that every single one of us, including those who are just three or four blocks from here, detained under the international bridge that connects us with mexico behind chain link fence and barbed wire, that they are our fellow human beings and deserve to be treated like our fellow human beings. >> reporter: he start in el paso in the shadow of the southern border where he was born and where he grew up.
4:06 am
el paso. but through the three stops, el paso, houston, and austin, he didn't directly address president trump's threat to shut down the border. he only said that trump must be defeated. and when it comes to the issues, while he listed off things that are important to him, he really didn't go into detail as to how he would achieve that. i keep thinking about a conversation i had with a voter in south carolina who said, okay, he has identified the problem. i like that but how will he identify the solutions? what should we expect next? well, after texas, he heads to new york, d.c., and back to iowa. >> leyla santiago in austin, texas, for us this morning, thank you. the president is tweeting that immigration laws could be fixed in less than an hour and then vote. >> joining us near west palm
4:07 am
beach is sarah westwood. he says this could be easy. democrats have control of the house but one would argue or expect it would have been easier when republicans had it. >> that's right. republicans did have two years to try to pass some kind of immigration reform. they did try. they did not do so the first two years of president trump's time in office. heading into this next week, trump is clearly fixated on the situation down on the border starting friday. he started issuing those threats again to shut down the southern border all or part of it. it's not the first time we have heard him threaten to close the border. he did so in a tweet in december but the first time he is attaching a deadline to it. he says might do it as soon as this week if he doesn't get more cooperation from mexico. the administration wants mexico to do more to stop illegal immigration into the u.s. here is what president trump wrote yesterday.
4:08 am
now customs and border protection says the status kuo status quo is unsus ttainable a the facilities are overflowing as they are not able to handle the number of people there that are crossing into the u.s. and many of these families and children seeking asylum. cbp is calling for congressional action to fix immigration laws. president trump echoed that message yesterday in a tweet when he wrote -- now the state department
4:09 am
announced this weekend that it would be cutting funding to three central american countries guatemala, el salvador and honduras and something president trump is threatening to do. this comes as cbp says it's on track this month in march to apprehend more people than any month since 2008. so, clearly, the situation on the border getting worse with his threat to close the border and with the state department's decision to sever aid to those three countries. the trump administration clearly moving closer to a dramatic response. >> sarah westwood, thank you. joining us now, cnn political commentator and political anchor at spectrum news, errol louis. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's start here with the threat to close the border this week, potentially. is there an explanation from the
4:10 am
administration or any of the republicans on the hill who support this? how this is expected to stop the tens of thousands of people coming between ports of entry seeking asylum? i mean, what then does the president do when a week, a month goes on and the tens of thousands of people continue to come? >> yeah, it's more of a talking point than a strategy, victor. we do something like 1.5 billion dollars a day worth of commerce through that southern border. to close it down would hurt u.s. companies, cost u.s. jobs, create a whole lot of confusion. something like 500,000 people who legally pass through the border in texas alone every single day. so you'd be inconveniencing a whole lot of people. it's a great talking point, however, and you hear the president say at his rallies and elsewhere because it sounds as if he is going to threaten to get tough with the central american countries and with
4:11 am
mexico. the fiction, of course, is they could stop this problem because you're exactly right. if tens of thousands of people walk up to the border other than capturing them, and maybe detaining them' exporting them not a lot you can do. whether there is legal commerce going or not, the people will continue to come most likely. >> when the president sent troops to the border, if there is a criteria that is met that calls it a crisis to send them what then is the criteria to retreat to pull them away? 35,000 was enough to say we need troops at the border. now it's 70,000. what then the response from the administration? let me get to the funding of sending aid to honduras and guatemala and el salvador. is there a constituency in the congress for this funding? are there enough republican senators who would like to see this money continue to go to
4:12 am
those countries to stand up to the president to fight him on this cutoff of aid? >> you know, it's a great question, victor. it's hard to be sure where they are coming from as far as their understanding of the relationship between that aid to these, what i would call sending countries and the flows of migrants that are coming from these countries, these desperate families that are trying to get out of instability and insecurity in central america. it's something like 2% of the entire foreign aid budget that goes to these countries. if you were to bump it up, we have actually seen examples in the past in countries like colombia where substantial aid, as well as assistance can security can stabilize the situation in those countries so that they stop sending refuges and migrants to the united states. i don't know if that is understood or believed by the republican majority in the senate. if they don't think it's going to work then they probably will try to cut back. these are stingy amounts.
4:13 am
i have to tell you when you're talking about tens or -- $10 or $20 million to a country, the amount of pain and misery that could be alleviated by substantially ramping that up is not even a rounding error in our budget and, yet, it doesn't really get talked about that way. it's always talked about will there be a wall and will there not be a wall and will we shut down the border as if there were simple solutions out there. >> it seems to contradict what we just saw and heard from dhs secretary kirstjen nielson and signed an agreement with the leaders of honduras and el salvador and guatemala. let's put up the quote. now take that money away, how do
4:14 am
you hold that line of addressing the root causes if you withdraw the funding? it seems this kind of came at the last minute and each the dhs secretary did not know. >> exactly. look. again, it's more politics than policy. the politics sound great when he says on twitter, of all places, i'll shut down the border and, you know, harm or inconvenience hundreds of thousands of people at a possible cost of billions of dollars if you don't do what i say. on the ground the situation looks a lot different. it's good that the whole homeland security secretary was there trying to draeaddress thet causes. if they don't get some kind of aid down there, what we are seeing is a regular sort of seasonal bump in migrants fleeing these countries because it's going to get really, really hot pretty soon and then you won't be able to sort of walk your way all the way to the u.s. border.
4:15 am
it will continue until and unless the united states gets its act together. whether the white house and the senate majority can figure this out, i guess, is the question on the table. >> despite what some believe should happen at the border, close it or not close it, has he put himself in a position now giving it a deadline which he has not done before when he threatened to do this that he has to some action considering the numbers that are still coming in or people who are requesting asylum that he'll have to take some action and closing at least a portion of the border this week? >> yeah. he can close some of the ports of entry. let's keep in mind it's not as if -- it's often portrayed as if there is some wave of people trying to elicitly enter the country. they are actually looking to come to the ports and present themselves for arrest detention and processing asylum application or something else. so he can close a couple of of the ports and it's going to harm all of the wrong people, meaning it will be people who wanted to come to the ports to surrender
4:16 am
themselves rather than cross illegal as well as people with legal ability to enter the country. let's keep in mind, there are u.s. citizens. the reason you can't close the border is u.s. citizens have a right to return their own country. you can't sort of blindly turn them away. you actually have to process people whatever their claim may be when they show up at the border. the president will make some kind of show of closing some ports and inconveniencing a lot of people but the actual border will not be shut down. >> the question with the people with the legal visas who want to come into the country and do they come between the ports to enter the country? a lot of questions and probably some lawsuits if the border ports are closed. errol louis, always good to have you. >> thank you. people are grieving this morning for a university of south carolina student. she was murdered after a night out with her roommates. what police are saying and a

classmate as well. the chicago police say they stand behind the professionalism of the detectives who worked on the jussie smollett case. we will tell you what else they are saying next. - [woman] with my shark, i deep clean messes like this. this and even this. but i don't have to clean this, because the self-cleaning brush roll removes hair, while i clean. - [announcer] shark, the vacuum that deep cleans, now cleans itself. has been excellent. they really appreciate the military family and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today. how about letting your hair down a little? how about a car for people who don't play golf? hey mercedes!

4:24 am
eddie johnson, back at the time of smollett's arrest saying smollett slapped everybody in the city of chicago across the face. he is angry about this but stresses police have a job to do and this perhaps is already wasted enough time now. whether jussie smollett ever pays that money is an open question. he has another five days to pay it and if he doesn't, he has been told that he may be pushed and prosecuted by the city's law department to pay that money. interesting to see how that plays out. and, also, whether this investigation ever happens. kim fox says she welcomes it. she clear thinks she has done nothing wrong. guys, back to you. >> all right. nick watts, we appreciate it. thank you very much. there are two celebrities now who are joining this growing outrage over a new law that seeks to punish adultery and any gay activity by way of death. the law, which is set to take

4:30 am
this morning, 2020 candidates are addressing the unwanted kiss allegations involving former vice president joe biden. listen to this. >> i read the op-ed last night. i believe lucy flores and joe biden needs to give an answer. >> i believe lucy flores. we need to live in a nation where people can hear her truth. >> former nevadan politician lucy flores seen in this picture with the former vice president and actress eva longoria alleges that biden grabbed her shoulders, inhaled her hair as she said it, and gave her a kiss on the back of her head in 2014. flores says that the alleged
4:31 am
kiss made her feel uneasy, gross, confused. >> biden spokesperson is responding with this statement, quote. back with us to discuss is cnn political commentator errol louis. vice president has talked about -- he has talked about what he wished he could have done during the anita hill hearing, during the confirmation of clarence thomas.
4:32 am
he talked about the implications of the crime bill. but this is a statement from a third-party from a spokesperson talking about the vice president and it says i don't remember that and it's not an apology. he is going to have to do more than this, will he not? >> exactly right, victor. he also has to worry about other women will come forward. this is not the kind of thing you can just kind of laugh off. the late night comedians have had fun at joe biden's expense over the years. you can go online and find these youtube compilations of him at various swearing in ceremonies and other occasions and being a little bit handsy and a little bit creepy and want argue by inappropriate but nobody has called it out in a specific way the way lucy flores has and it really puts it front and center and it's something that the biden camp is going to have to figure out, especially if he does, in fact, announce, because things are different than they were not only in 1994 and things
4:33 am
are different than in 2015. he is going to have to, i think, do a little bit more than say i don't remember it, although it might be legitimate. that is just the start of the conversation. >> because it is a different time, errol, do you think we will see a different joe biden if he does enter the race than we have seen in the past? >> well, if he wants to appeal to the base of the democratic party, it starts with women. you know? it includes especially latino women who are a sizeable portion. you know? you're going to have to try and work this out. he has to have people come forward and vouch for him and have sort of character witnesses and he has to talk about this issue in a way that makes it real for him personally. what is tricky is anybody can reel off the policy propositions of making sure that harassment is detected and punished and deterred. it's him personally that he is going to have to sort of step forward and explain himself to an audience that a little bit more skeptical than it was just a few years ago about i meant no
4:34 am
harm or it's all in good fun or nobody complained so i thought it was okay. those kind of explanations just don't fly any more. >> i want to switch gears to a poll regarding the mueller report. a poll in "the washington post." 53% of people polled approve of how mueller handled the investigation. 30% disapprove. 59% believe russia tried to influence the outcome of 2016 u.s. elections. the 31% do not. we keep talking about president trump having a 30% base and this is what stood out to me. both of those -- both of those polls would indicate that, would they not? >> yeah. look. there is this base there. you got to remember on the day he resigned in disgrace, richard nixon had something like 24% support, right? so there are always going to be people who support even at a very unpopular president. even if facts are known that would lead people so day this
4:35 am
person did not really serve in office. i think we would all agree that is where nixon was at the very end. so, you know, what people think about this unseen report, i think, really is going to -- mostly reflect where the country is and the country seems to be in a place where 30% to 45% support the president. >> where do we go from here kind of thing. 46% believe president trump admitted a wrongdoing and 46% believe he did not do so. that is a pretty good middle split there. is it valuable enough for the democrats to further investigate the president on this matter or is it time to move on? >> the democrats will have to. i mean, the democrats who control the house of representatives, they have a constitutional duty to do something not only with those numbers but with the report. the report, when we see it in its final form or whatever form makes its way on congress is going to serve as kind of a road map. again, comparing it back to the nixon era, the special
4:36 am
prosecutor gave congress kind of a road map of here are some real problems that out there and not necessarily crimes that can be prosecuted in a courtroom but awe is the congress, congress has a constitutional obligation to investigate and to take appropriate action and that, you know, could be anything from censor to expressions of disapproval and up to impeachment. >> it's honor to say the assessment how the investigate ended and the findings, not one of the persons who respond to do that poll has actually seen the report because nobody has. >> nobody has. >> when that comes new -- out in april maybe that number will change. >> let's keep in mind at the ends of the day, victor, what people think about the facts doesn't change whether or not the facts exist. >> change the facts.
4:37 am
when you think about them -- yeah, they don't change. >> errol louis, thank you for staying with us. >> thank you. jeannine pirro is back on fox news after her controversial marks about representative omar and she is aiming at president trump's critics. making my dreams a reality takes more than just investment advice. from insurance to savings to retirement, it takes someone with experience and knowledge who can help me build a complete plan. brian, my certified financial planner™ professional, is committed to working in my best interest. i call it my "comfortable future plan," and it's all possible with a cfp® professional. find your certified financial planner™ professional at i must admit. i had a few good tricks to help hide my bladder leak pad. like the old "tunic tug". you know it, right? but i don't have to, with always discreet. i couldn't believe the difference.

4:42 am
i don't know. >> fox suspended her but danny publicize it and punished her and didn't talk about it in the press but she was off for tweaks and unusual move. the reason it matters it's one of the president's favorite shows. it's a fox news presidency. he was angry that judge pirro was not on the air defending him and supporting him. on pirro's first day back, here is what rudy giuliani had to say. >> it's an honor to be with you again. >> oh, thank you. >> you know what i think of you and your entire career. >> thank you. >> oour a crusader for justice. >> thank you. >> putting it on thick this rudy giuliani on behalf of the president and this is a cycle that exists between the president and his favorite shows. he defends them and they defend him and on it goes. they were calling for pirro to come back and she showed up at a rale for him a few months ago.
4:43 am
she is back on the air and when you listen to her rhetoric and rhetoric from her colleagues you can hear how extreme and radical it is. she demanded behind bars justice last night for the people she believes created this hoax about russia and trump and that is really extreme rhetoric but the kind of in the president's ears and he likes to hear and now one of his favorite shows is back on tv. >> before we let you go, "saturday night live" brought back alec baldwin and robert deniro. >> this gets him tweeting that government should look use regulating comedy. here it is. >> as for conspiracy or collusion, there were several questionable incidences involving the president's team but we cannot prove a criminal connection. >> no collusion, no digity and
