7:03 am
with more on this allegation against joe biden. stephanie, good morning. >> reporter: dan, good morning. a former nevada politician says she was initially grateful and flattered that former vice president joe biden was supporting her campaign for lieutenant governor back in 2014. but she says by the end of an event, he made her feel uneasy, gross and confused after she says he kissed the back of her head. this morning, we're hearing for the first time from the woman accusing former vice president joe biden of inappropriately touching and kissing the back of her head five years ago. >> at that point it wasn't joe biden. it was the second most powerful man in the country, the vice president of the united states of america is touching me and kissing me and smelling my hair. >> reporter: lucy flores, a former nevada politician says the encounter happened right before she took the stage at a campaign rally. she came forward with her allegations in "new york" magazine friday. >> what do you do? who do you tell? it was awkward and disturbing and weird. but at the same time, it doesn't rise to the level of what most people would consider a very
7:04 am
serious transgression. >> reporter: in a statement to abc news, biden's spokesperson said neither the vice president nor his staff recall what flores describes or got the impression she had been uncomfortable. in a statement released this morning biden state quote in my many years on the campaign trail and in public life i have oftened countless hand shakes, hugs support and comfort. not once, never did i believe i acted inappropriately. if it is suggested i did so i will listen respectfully. it was never my intention. this isn't the first time that biden has come under scrutiny for his behavior around women. in 2015, biden put his hands on stephanie carter's shoulders, whispering in her ear during her husband's swearing-in as secretary of defense. but the flores' allegations comes as biden considers a possible run for president of the united states in 2020. democratic presidential candidates are now reacting to her claim.
7:05 am
>> i believe lucy flores, and joe biden needs to give an answer. >> we need to live in a nation where people can hear her truth. >> reporter: so, why is she speaking out now? well, she says hearing biden's potential candidacy for president discussed without much talk of his past as it relates to women became too much to keep bottled up. several staffers including women are coming to biden's defense. one former staffer tweeted she never felt uncomfortable the way he treated her. whit. >> the former vice president will certainly be answering more questions on this moving forward. stephanie ramos, thanks so much, in washington for us. we want to move on to the immigration battle. president trump ramping up the pressure this weekend on that threat to close the border in just a matter of days. abc's tara palmeri is covering the president in florida and joins us now from west palm beach. tara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. president trump has threatened
7:06 am
to close the border before, but he says he'll do it this time. but his decisions to cut hundreds of millions of dollars of aid to three central american countries for not doing enough to stop the migrant flows is one of his most severe actions yet. president trump taking drastic measures to stop the surge of migrants crossing the u.s./mexico border. >> mexico is going to have to do something. otherwise, i'm closing the border. reporter: the president announcing that he's cutting off humanitarian aid to honduras, el salvador and guatemala, three countries that are the primary source for migrant caravans. >> we were giving them $500 million. we were paying tremendous amounts of money and we're not paying them anymore. because they haven't done a thing for us. >> reporter: according to u.s. customs and border protection, the number of illegal crossings has risen. 76,000 migrants were stopped at the border in february. 40,000 of those were families. federal officials say march is on track to surpass those figures, with an estimated 95,000 migrants.
7:07 am
the cbp announcing that 40% of their guards have been diverted from the border to process some of those families. >> we'll keep it closed for a lodge time. i'm not playing games. mexico has to stop it. they have people coming right through mexico. >> reporter: while president trump unverifiably claims that illegal immigration has led to rising crimes, democratic candidates offering a more inclusive message. >> we are safe not despite the fact that we are a city of immigrants and asylum seekers. we're safe because we're a city of immigrants and asylum seekers. >> when a mama picks up her baby and flees violence and death threats, the united states listens. that's part of what we do. it's part of who we are. >> reporter: the state department announced that it will work with congress to suspend aid already allotted to these central american countries for 2017, 2018.
7:08 am
overnight democratic law makers are saying they're ready to fight it. dan? >> tara palmeri, thank you very much. so much to talk about here. let's bring in jon karl who's going to be hosting "this week" later this morning. he's right there in d.c. jon, good morning. let me start with this threat to shut down the border. given the gigantic potential economic damage that could be caused by closing this huge border, do you think that's a risk the president is ready to take? >> reporter: dan, this isn't the first time he threatened to shut down the border. he threatened to do it back in december and did not do it. but you're correct, the economic risk is tremendous here. $1.7 billion worth of goods cross back and forth over that mexican border every single day. so there's a lot at stake. there are a couple things that are a little odd about this threat. the biggest one is that secretary of homeland security kirstjen nielsen had just this week praised mexico for helping the united states deal with this issue.
7:09 am
she had just worked out what she called an historic agreement with el salvador, honduras and guatemala to deal with the issue. now, you have the president saying he's going to cut off aid to those countries and threatening to close off the border. it remains to be seen if he follows through with this threat. but it would undoubtedly have big economic repercussions. >> high stakes there. let me loop back to the story we began our show with. this allegation against the former vice president joe biden, he appears to be on the verge of announcing that he's running for president. how damaging is this allegation? >> reporter: i think this is potentially very damaging. you're already seeing his, you know, some of his competitors, or potential competitors if he gets into the race, 2020 candidates, saying that they believe lucy flores and also, you have to look at biden's own words. when he was talking about the kavanaugh allegations and he addressed this issue of when women make allegations, he says,
7:10 am
the default position is you believe the accuser and that's what a lot of his democratic competitors are doing. i think it's a significant issue and one he's going to have to address much more directly than he's done so far. >> this could shake-up an already very -- let's just say exciting race. jon karl, thank you very much. we really appreciate it. >> i want to remind everybody, jon has a big show this morning. he'll go one-on-one with the acting chief of staff at the white house mick mulvaney. democratic senator amy klobuchar discussing her 2020 presidential campaign. coming up later this morning on "this week" right here on abc. also this morning, pope francis wrapping up his trip to morocco with a mass and a meeting with local clergy on this sunday. on saturday, a security scare during welcoming ceremonies, when a man with something in his hand, possibly a note, racing up to the car.

7:12 am
actors are weighing in on the controversy. this morning, new fallout in the real-life legal saga surrounding actor jussie smollett. his attorney mark geragos claiming on "the reasonable doubt" podcast it was the prosecutors who proposed a deal to do away with the case against the embattled star. >> they approached us about dismissing it, and not the other way around. >> reporter: it comes as state attorney kim foxx fiercely defends the surprise decision to drop that 16-count indictment. writing in the "chicago tribune" my office believed the likelihood of securing a conviction was not certain. >> it's hard for people to realize that justice takes many forms. this is a form we utilized in this case. >> reporter: foxx who recused herself early in the investigation after exchanging text messages with smollett's close associates stressing the move wasn't a sign of the actor's innocence saying, he's not been exonerated and he has not been found innocent. but the dismissal of charges against smollett straining the relationship between prosecution and city officials who maintain smollett staged a hoax and owes
7:13 am
the city $130,000 for the high profile investigation. >> welcome to the 50th naacp awards. >> reporter: amid the last tumult, the actor a no-show where he was nominated but didn't appear for his role in "empire." chris rock slamming smollett while presenting an award. >> they said no jussie smollett jokes. yeah, i know. what the [ bleep ] was he thinking? you're jussie from now. you don't even get the you no more. the you is respect. you don't get no respect from me. >> reporter: meta golding standing by her co-star. >> we all love and support jussie. we just want this to work out for the best. what's fantastic is that the charges have been dropped. >> the police chief incensed by the dropping of those charges saying he stands by the work of detectives and the conclusion of the grand jury. the state's attorney said she welcomes an outside
7:14 am
nonpolitical investigation to see how her office handled this case. >> yet more to come on this story, no doubt. erielle, thank you very much. we do want to turn now to the stunning revelation from the lead investigator hired by jeff bezos to find out who leaked his private data to the "national enquirer" regarding his alleged affair. gavin de becker saying, several experts concluded with high confidence that the saudis had access to bezos' phone and gained private information, end quote. adding, the investigation has ended and his findings have been turned over to federal officials. now to a shocking death in atlanta. a 19-year-old man accidentally knocks on the wrong apartment door and is gunned down. abc's zachary kiesch has more. >> a person shot. responding on with apd. >> reporter: a teenager is dead and his neighbor is behind bars. charged with murder. witnesses say the whole thing was set off when a new resident at this apartment complex in atlanta allegedly knocked on the wrong door by accident.
7:15 am
his mother still in shock. >> he simply went to the wrong door. he knocked. that's when a guy came out and did what he did. >> reporter: banks a 19-year-old was dropped off around midnight. police say the driver of the lyft pulled up to the wrong building, about 40 yards from where he intended to be. but banks, a new resident and on the phone with his girlfriend at the time, didn't notice. >> i just heard faint voices and a gunshot. i heard him yell and i heard all the fear in his voice. he was just, like, i'm sorry. i'm at the wrong door. and the man was, like, no, you're not at the wrong door, and he shot two more times. then it was silent. >> reporter: police say after realizing he knocked on the wrong door, banks was leaving when 32-year-old darryl bynes walked out of the apartment on to the balcony and shot the teen as he walked down the stairs. bynes was arrested and charged with murder. the shooter's family claims he
7:16 am
fired his gun in self defense raising questions whether the shooter could be protected by georgia's stand your ground laws. >> i don't see any evidence that would justify the suspect walking out on to his balcony and shooting the victim, not once but multiple times. >> reporter: this morning, banks' mother is still trying to make sense of it all. >> it's one of the hardest things that a mother could do is bury their own child. >> just a tragic event. now, banks' mother said her son made a mistake but was a hardworking young man that brought joy to those who knew him. the alleged shooter is in custody. and there's an active police investigation going on. lots of questions here. just a devastating situation for that family. >> we're sending our best to the mother this morning. wow, awful. >> can't help but think of that family. thanks, zachary. we do want to show you video now of this dramatic rescue off the gulf coast of florida.
