make sure the safety of the other 324 million americans was put first. i don't see how that is a big problem. >> tonight, it is becoming increasingly clear tens of thousands of people directly impacted by the new policy. of the nearly 60,000 who had their visas revoked, thousands are already here in the country, they will not be deported but if they leave they will not be allowed back in. and there are tens of thousands more overseas with visas already in hand who would have been allowed in, but no longer. abc news, the white house. president trump met with his business advisory council this morning and at that meeting, tesla ceo elon musk apparently asked about his executive order. take a look, according to cnbc, musk talked about the order and said he would object to the order which tonight as we told you has been put on hold by a

a six-month ban on the iraqi program after two iraqis came to this country and were radicalized and the master minds because of the boling green massacre. it didn't get covered. >> it didn't get covered because it did not happen. there never has been a terror attack of any kind there, what did happen, which abc news first reported was an fbi sting that caught two iraqi refugees on this undercover tape convicted of trying to send weapons to iraq for attacks on u.s. soldiers there. the two had managed to get into the country even though both had known ties to al qaeda. >> if you're asking my opinion i would say the system failed. >> reporter: the arrest of the two men now in prison said to a six-month drastic curtailment and overhaul of the iraqi refugee program in 2011. but it all happened in this quiet town of 60,000 without incident, without bloodshed, without massacre. today on the front page of the boling green daily news, one

game. warriors had seven players on the roster, the move opens up a roster spot for golden state, that spot will go to weber, a 6'2" guard. he can get up the d-league player of the month, he is known technically as a defensive specialist, had a coue of short stints in the nba last season with nba and miami, and new england and atlanta, among the prop bets you can make, how many commercials peyton manning will be in. number of times giselle will be shown on tv, and number of times mattie ice will be shown, julio jones, bothered by a toe injury but bill belichick knows they got to stop julio. >> he does everything well and brings an element of toughness to the position i would say is extremely high, a very
competitive tough player and i have all the respect in the world for him. guy is one of the top players in the league. >> there is another super event this weekend. and this is what it will look like. i don't know if you have ever been to super cross, it's wild. we'll be to the oakland coliseum on saturday, they're racing rain or shine. the racer cole zeally gave us a look. >> i'm one of the racers, our team, we have a pretty big team, actually,wo semi trucks, nobody really gets to check this out. so this is a little bit more special. it's very rare to have anybody in here, really. i mean, let alone with the camera. basically like an entire race shop back here. so everything is labelled, organized, everything has got a place. everything has a bar code. i mean, we got basic stuff, and graphics, stickers.
bunch of spare parts. these are just cables, like auto cables, clutch cables, here is a pretty expensive part, these are our foot pegs, they're full titanium and weigh next to nothing. they're actually $2500 for a set, very expensive. once i load a bike with these peggins i was like i got to hav them. all right, so you have seen our truck, which is very rare. we'll be here all day tomorrow, come check us out, we're doing autographs from 11:30 to noon, come say hi, you can look at the outside of the rig, hopefully see you guys. >> that is fun abc 7 sports brought to you by toyota. all right, thank you larry and thank you for joining us to the, i'm ama dietz, for larry, and dan and
