7:07 am
and you were talking about, too, it's one thing to get tornadoes but the back-to-back tornadoes sent people scrabbling. >> these situations are never good. this one seems especially bad. the threat unfortunately is not over. tens of millions of americans at risk today from the south all the way up to the northeast. rob is out in central park tracking it all. rob, good morning. >> good morning, dan. you heard these storms are moving fast and they'll be expanding throughout the day to encompass a larger area. high density population. let's go to the maps and show you where the storms are, moving through alabama where there have been a number of tornado warnings this morning. there's snow behind this and more ahead of it well in the way of thunderstorms. this and a tornado watch is up for parts of alabama and the florida panhandle. that will be expanded as these storms push east from columbus into western georgia. we'll have several pockets of convection as this entire system, as it's growing in size, moves its way to the north and east. charlotte, roanoke, augusta and

7:09 am
bus migrants from detention centers along the southern border to so-called sanctuary cities. >> they want more people in their sanctuary cities. we can give them a lot, an unlimited supply. >> we'll do everything we can, to make sure that people who come to the city, whatever their immigration status is, will be treated fairly and with respect. >> reporter: an idea the white house dismissed on friday, saying it was, quote, floated and rejected. but hours later, the president contradicting his team and embracing the plan. the white house now launching a review on how it would work and how much it would cost. >> we're going through the process. we're reviewing everything we do lawfully. the fact is, we released them already in certain communities. what's the difference in releasing them a little further? >> reporter: as the president tangles with democrats over his immigration policy, the battle over his tax returns escalates. house ways and means chairman richard neal sending a second later to the irs commissioner
7:10 am
demanding the president's tax returns from the past six years. the committee setting a new april 23rd deadline. giving the administration ten days to hand over the returns after they missed the april 10th deadline. treasury secretary steve mnuchin dismissed the request telling reporters the deadline is arbitrary. >> i'm not aware if there's ever been a request for an elected official's tax return. but we'll follow the law and we'll protect the president as we would protect any individual taxpayer under their right. >> reporter: according to tax code, the ways and means chairman can request any tax payer's return and the treasury department shall furnish them. >> i'm under audit. that's up to whoever it is. from what i understand, the law is 100% on my side. >> reporter: white house chief of staff mick mulvaney signaling the administration will guard the returns. >> you believe democrats will never see the president's tax returns? >> never, nor should they. >> reporter: secretary mnuchin
7:11 am
says that the democrats are trying to politicize the irs to get the president's financial information and the democrats say they have no right to question their motivation because it's within their constitutional right. but both sides have made it clear they're ready to fight this all the way to the supreme court. whit? >> both sides digging in. tara palmeri at the white house for us. thank you. also in politics this morning, the 2020 race is heating up. in just a few hours, democrat pete buttigieg is expected to officially kick off his presidential campaign. abc's chief national correspondent matt gutman is in south bend, indiana with a look at mayor pete and the momentum he's building. matt, good morning. >> reporter: hey, whit, good morning. pete buttigieg making that big announcement today is the biggest nonsecret in politics. now, in elections voters are often looking for the opposite of the incumbent and pete buttigieg is offering himself up as the anti-trump. in his words, an intellectual,
7:12 am
laidback, gay mayor from the midwest, half the age of the president. >> let me introduce the mayor, pete buttigieg. >> reporter: the unpronounceable name now a household name. >> all eyes are on south bend indiana mayor pete buttigieg. >> pete buttigieg. >> mayor pete buttigieg. >> reporter: it's a candidacy full of firsts. first mayor to win a nomination. the first openly gay man in office. the first president under 40. the 37-year-old with the boy scout looks has cultivated quite a resume. harvard, rhodes scholar. oxford, mckinsey consulting firm. and a u.s. navy reserve officer. earning a medal for his counterterrorism work. he's been slightly vague on political platform. in his interview with george stephanopoulos, described his plan for medicare. >> a version of medicare, anyone who wants to buy into it buy into it. if people like me are right that that's going to be a preferred
7:13 am
option, that very naturally becomes a glide path to a medicare for all environment. >> reporter: as a devote episcopolian, he's gained attention for his fight with fellow hoosier mike pence. >> as he seeks to be that person to uphold the office he would do well to reflect on the importance of freedom of religion for every america. >> i'm not interested in feuding with the vice president. if he wanted to clear this up, he could come out today he changed his mind and say that it shouldn't be legal to discriminate against anyone in this country for who they are. >> reporter: last night i asked for an advance copy of his speech and i was told he's not written it out. even his own aides don't know what he's going to say. they tell me that he's been thinking about this for some time. it will be a speech in front of his hometown crowd here, right inside that old studebaker factory. no teleprompters. no prepared statements. so, in at least that way dan, a little bit like president trump. >> fair point. it may end there. matt, thank you very much.
7:14 am
matt gutman on the ground in indiana. lot to talk about, let's bring in our chief anchor george stephanopoulos who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. so, i mean, you've been around, i don't want to date you, you've been around politics for a minute. >> you just did. >> that was me doing it on purpose and trying to hide it. you've watched candidates come and go in big, crowded fields. i was thinking this morning about lamar alexander in 1996, wearing his plaid shirts. everyone thought he was the hot thing in a minute. obviously dole took it. do you think this lamar alexander in 1996 or barack obama in 2008? >> yogi berra said it's hard to made predictions, especially about the future. what do we know about pete buttigieg? he brought his way on to the debate stage. he's rising in the polls, guarantees he'll be in those all-important first debates that start this summer. right there that gives him a leg up. he'll have enough money to make it at least through those early primaries because he's building
7:15 am
this online presence. and i think what we have seen so far, he has thought about this a lot. he knows what he wants to say. he knows how to communicate his ideas and he knows how to do it in a way that appeals to the democratic base without -- often without turning off those who might be on the other side. he's got a lot of skills. whether he can all the way, nobody knows. he's certainly got some momentum. >> another point of contact with trump is both of these people came out of nowhere in crowded fields. let's talk about immigration. you've got the president's press secretary sarah sanders on the show tonight. i imagine you'll talk about this plan to bus immigrants to sanctuary cities. before we came on the air, we talked about this article in the associated press this morning that makes the point this plan, the winners could be the migrants. they'll end up in place where they're protected from the feds, where they're welcomed. given that, do you think this is truly a serious plan? >> the president is clearly pushing it. the department of homeland
7:16 am
security has rejected it at least twice apparently in a phone call with the president and the former secretary of homeland security kirstjen niels nielsen. the president is driving this forward. as you point out, it seems to run counter to the policy that the president wants. it would actually encourage more migrants to stay longer, to come and put down roots. he seems to be acting on the idea that this is punishing cities run by democrats. that's the mindset he's coming at this from. whether he can get this done, whether it can be paid for, whether it's legal, all big questions on the table. the president seems to be driven on this right now. >> well, i'm interested to learn more on your show this morning. thank you very much. reminder, george has a big show, as discussed. he'll go one-on-one with the white house press secretary sarah sanders. plus, democrat congressman tim ryan on jumping in the 2020 presidential race and facing pete buttigieg among others. that's all coming up on "this week" on abc. george, thanks again. speaking of 2020, senator cory booker officially launching his candidacy for president with a hometown kickoff in newark, new jersey, the former newark

7:21 am
after he won his first masters title. >> there it is, a win for the ages! >> reporter: when he became the youngest to do so at just 21 years old. tiger isn't out of the woods yet. he's two shots off the lead. if he wins it will be his first major in nearly 11 years and it would put him one win away from tying the all-time pga record for tour wins. that record is currently 82 held by sam snead. tiger's right on his heels. he's never come behind to win a major, but there's a first time for everything, right. fans are certainly hoping so. >> anything can happen. thank you. >> diane, thank you very much. we do have a break in the decades' old murder case involving the area of the texas killing fields. how groundbreaking technology has now identified two women killed more than 25 years ago plus a carjacking leads to a high speed chase and a shoot-out. how one sheriff's deputy came within an inch of losing his
