>> welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. we're approaching the final weekend before the midterm elections in georgia's tight race for governor. it's getting national attention. former president obama will campaign there today for democratic candidate stacey abrams. >> he follows oprah, there's only one who hospitaled two rallies for abrams yesterday. vice president mike pence was also in georgia supporting the republican candidate for governor, brian kemp. nancy cordes is covering the georgia election and filed this report from college park, that's just outside atlanta. >> reporter: it's busy today because this is the last day of early voting before voters go to the polls again on election day. and polls show that this race for governor is a virtual tie, which is why democrats are hoping that oprah's unique get out the vote effort will make a difference. >> ya'll will make some history.

7:08 am
it entered mexico. the caravan is more than 800 miles south of the closest border crossing in brownsville, texas. it could also head to tijuana. it's not likely to reach the u.s. border until december at the earliest. >> the president is taking new steps to block that caravan from entering the u.s. he campaigned in missouri. suggesting border violence could be met with gunfire. the president visits west virginia and indiana later on today. as part of an eight-state swing in the final days of the campaign. major garrett covered last night's rally in columbia, missouri, and fired this report earlier today. >> reporter: good morning to you. the president hit the main midterm argument theme, immigration, tax cut and the supreme court. at times, the speech rambled. at one point, the president blamed news coverage of what he called maniacs. t he meant the
7:09 am
killed 11 in pittsburgh and the suspect now charged with sending pipe bombs to prominent democrats of blunting republican midterm momentum. back on immigration, the president called for tighter border security and offered some exaggerated claims about the migrant threat. >> you know, we called up the military because we're not going to let people come into our country, when you look at that, illegally, not going to happen. >> reporter: president trump told an overflow crowd in central missouri he would seal the southern border in advance of a honduran migrant caravan still weeks away. >> people have really gal vannize evan gal vannized over this. they have to come into our country legally and through merit, through merit. >> reporter: earlier at the white house, the president said he would use executive power to require migrants seeking asylum in the u.s. to apply only at ports of entry, not at the border where they can apply now. >> we're building massive numbers of tents and we will hold them number two
7:10 am
years rlier. >> these migrants are not legitimate asylum seekers. >> reporter: according to the department of homeland security, the number of credible fear or persecution or torture cases have also reached record highs in recent years. up by nearly 70% between 2015 and 2016. the president also said active duty soldiers would return fire if migrants threw rocks at them. >> we will consider that a firearm. because there's not much difference. when you get hit in the face with a rock. >> reporter: in a statement, the pentagon said it will not discuss hypothetical situation, but our forces always have the inherent right of defense. that pentagon statement went on to, quote, emphasize, that the military will support border patrol and not participate in any law enforcement activities. back on the president's asylum move, critics accused him of lying about the hardships asylum seekers actually face, while
7:11 am
trampling on u.s. law and international agreements, john. >> major, thank you. dan senor is the former adviser to paul right and mitt romney. he's been talking to members of congress about the immigration push. >> good morning. i think he ought to strip these issues apart. i think the caravan issue does raise legitimate policy issues. i mean, regardless of how it's been hyped. the reality is, if you look at what's happened in europe where you've had this massive migration crisis. no real effort to stop it. completely unsettled european politics. merkel has just stepped down in part because of the politics of this. >> from her party. >> right, which means she won't be able to run again. the idea we should have a serious policy to make sure that shouldn't happen here is legitimate. when thousands of people seem to be coming to the u.s., we need some kind of policy. my impression from a policy standpoint that's legitimate and
7:12 am
politically it's good. where i think the president went too far is on this birth right citizenship issue. for several reasons. one, it's unconstitutional. two, he said sort of in a flip way, not coordinated with anyone in the congressional leadership, i'll just do this by executive order. in response to a question from a report they're seemed to be goading him a little bit. it just conveyed chaos. and i think the biggest risk to the republicans heading into these midterms is not the president's policy agenda but it's the conveying chaos. and the way he's been handling some of the immigration issue reinforces chaos. >> what do you make of his attack on speaker paul ryan as it pertains to the birth right issue? >> so ryan had been campaigning. i think there's a very good chance republicans are going to hang on to the senate or pk up a seat. i think there's a very good chance the republicans are going to lose the house. if they lose the house, they're going to lose districts in new york state, in new jersey, california, in suburban virginia. and in these districts, which are basically suburban
7:13 am
districts, upper middle class districts, talking about a chaotic executive order to unearth a constitutional guarantee about birth right citizenship does not play well and ryan was in one of those districts when he was given the interview, when he responded to what the president said. ryan both believes it's a mistake. and he thinks it's bad for the members whose seats he's trying to save. he'sed in t in the middle of th 25-city tour right now trying to hang to the republican majority. i think the only reason it ends there is because the two of them basically have a good working relationship so neither wants to escalate. more importantly, the flurry of news events. i wake up every day. by 8:30, i'm exhausted. there's just so much going on. i thought we have five days left before midterms. my math is like 34 tweets. five, six tweets a day from the president. we're in this constant flurry. this little skirmish with ryan won't stop it. >> he tweets more over the

7:15 am
walkout were hoping that it prompted a bigger movement, but even they were surprised by the massive turnout. from the home of google headquarters in northern california, to new york and abroad, thousands of employees streamed out of their offices thursday in a show of solidarity. >> i want google to take seriously claims of people who were harassed and respond to them appropriately and not sweep them under the rug. >> reporter: the protest comes a week after a "new york times" investigation revealed google had given android co-creator andy rubin a $90 million exit package in 2014. that's despite accusations of sexual misconduct against him which the company deemed were credible. rubin has denied the allegations and says the compensation was exaggerated. employees called the case the latest example of aplicity and >> -- hold ourselves in such
7:16 am
high moral standards, our mantra of don't be evil. i mean, this to me is the epitome of evil. >> reporter: around the same time as the walkout, the google ceo acknowledged the anger and frustration. >> moments like this show we didn't always get it right so we're committed to doing better. >> reporter: walkout organizers have five demands. among them, no more forced arbitration. and an end to pay and opportunity inex wec betteroce for the turnt. incredibly touched by the friends and allies. it's one of the proudest days. >> reporter: google says over the past four years they have fired 48 people over sexual harassment claims. none of them were paid out. the company says it was also in support of yesterday's walkout. but business leaders point out these workers are not unionized so they don't have protection and walking out was a big risk.
7:17 am
bianna. >> a big risk but it was important. jamie, thank you. new york city police could share new evidence today in the mysterious deaths of two sisters from saudi arabia. cbs news has learned they may be ruled suicides. the body of the 23-year-old and 13-year-old were discovered bound together last week. jericka duncan is near where they were found. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. investigators are trying to retrace the movements of those sisters through the use of credit card transactions and video surveillance. now, a source tells cbs news that the sisters, who came here from virginia, actually came to new york city back in september. another source tells us that police are using a phone number belonging to the sisters to ping their whereabouts off local cell towers. now, they came to the u.s. from saudi arabia with their mother three years ago, were discovered last week bound together by duct
