israel's two main parties are virtually tied for the number of seats they have in parliamt last night both of them actually declared victory. we are at blue and white party headquarters of benny gantz, who took to the stage and called himself israel's next prime minister. but not long after benjamin netanyahu took to the stage at his party headquarters and said he was declaring victory. he had fireworks and all. but here's the thing, neither of these parties have enough seats in parliament to create a government on their own. so the tough part begins, a coalition must be formed. at this point it appears benjamin netanyahu's likud party has the pathway to do that. he would rely on support from ultra orthodox rate that govern.
7:07 am
and this further push to the right, this swing to the right here inl only have an impact on local domestic policies but also world affairs and certainly a path to peace here in the middle east. palestinians have already expressed concerns over the last-minute campaign pledge made by benjamin netanyahu to annex settlements in the west bank. that is, of course, quite controversial because that land is seen by most of the world as occupied territory. norah? >> more there seth in tel aviv, israel, thank you. the trump administration is laying out details of its tough new strategy on immigration. a senior immigration official said the white house wants the right to detain migrant children longer and make it harder for asylum seekers to get work permits. new government figures show more than 103,000 people were apprehended at the u.s./mexico border in march. more than 92,000 were between

ports of entry. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. the white house driven by re-election impulgses see two outcomes. one, the hardline policy makes matters worse, more detentions and suffering and congress seeing all of this is forced to act. or congress does not act, the president runs generally against bemtway obstruction or democratic resistance and keeps immigration issue politically alive. >> we have the worst laws of any country anywhere in the world. >> reporter: the president is leaning hard right and seeking re-election daylight. in a now-deleted video on twitter, mr. trump turns the table on race and discrimination showing the immigrants bias elites. >> they want open borders, pouring into our country. >> reporter: the president is looking are for more spending on larger detention facilities without congressional approval.

schools about the measles epidemic. tony, thank you. actress lori loughlin and more than a dozen others accused in the college admission scandal face new and more serious charges this morning. prosecutors indicted 16 parents yesterday, including loughlin and her husband designer massimo giannulli and money landering and fraud charges. that is in addition to the previous charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud. we reached out to their attorneys but did not hear back. 13 of the 33 parents charged in the original indictment, including actress felicity huffman, agreed monday to plead services mail fraud. rki kliema following the case. good morning. >> good morning. >> what messages are they sending to the folks who are not pleading guilty? >> they are saying you had enough time to enter a guilty plea and show remorse and contrition and you didn't. since you didn't, we're giving
7:17 am
you another charge. now, while i say that, this is not a vindictive prosecution. what this is is appropriate prosecution from people who are serious about their case because this case started by means of complaint, capital c. a complaint means you can get arrested on a charge that is written. but that's not the end. because within 30 days the government must go to a grand jury and return an indictment or the complaint gets dismissed. none of these facts are new. none of the story has changed. >> doesn't remorse and contrition really matter? you look at the way these two high-profile women are handling it. one seems textbook perfect. one seems textbook really, really wrong. what's your take on that? >> my take on it is we have exactly the two extremes. felicity huffman has been in fact pitch perfect. he's looked ashamed. she's looked stricken from the very beginning and accepting
7:18 am
responsibility. accepting responsibility and saying she really wants to get this done and over with because she knew she did wrong. in addition, she had two kids. she just did this with one child. lori loughlin on the other hand, two children, two $250,000 payments alleged and goes into the court, goes into boston, signs autographs, smiles with those pearly whites, goes up to the prosecutors, the temerity to go up to a prosecutor and shake three prosecutors' hands -- >> why is that wrong? >> why is that wrong? they are your adversaries in a court of law where decorum is important. this is a woman -- may not be the true facts but it certainly is the appearance -- who looked like she feels that she can buy her way out of a jail sentence. that is not going to happen hematter, doesn't it? >> critically from beginning to end. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> you have more to say? >> can i come back tomorrow!

7:31 am
i think a lot of brackets look like james corden's. very nice. welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things you should know. at least three. president trump plans to sign two executive orders today aimed at speeding up oil and gas projects. the executive action will make it a whole lot easier for american energy companies to build oil and gas pipelines and harder for state agencies to intervene. it will also give the president sole responsibility for approving or denying those pipelines. the move follows the president's decision last month to issue a new permit for the long-stalled keystone xl oil pipeline. the state department is using a new indicator to mark the countries with a threat of kidnapping or hostage taking for u.s. citizens. about 35 countries have been identified using the "k" label, including many in africa and the middle east, along with the philippines, russia, and turkey. it's part of an effort by the
7:32 am
agency to reduce kidnapping incidents overseas. the move comes just days after an american womand re in uganda. the fda has approved a new drug for osteoporosis in post menopausal women that may help restore bones without breaking them down. in clinical trials, a monthly injection of the drug increased patients' bone density in their spines by 15%. the fda says the drug should not be used by patients who have had a heart attack or a stroke in the past year. the nation's top pediatricians group is pushing for a recall of a popular baby product linked to dozens of reported deaths. consumer reports says that fisher-price rock and play sleeper is tied to the death of at least 32 babies. this includes infants who rolled over and suffocated while in the seat. the american academy of pediatrics urges parents to stop concerns grew.duct immediately.
7:33 am
janua jan, good morning. this is scary stuff. >> it really is and sad. this fisher-price rocker, like this one, is the phrase "all night long." the company says parents should stop using the product once the baby is able to roll over. if that happens, they can suffocate. that is a risk some parents say is not clear enough, and this product, they say, is too dangerous to be on the market. >> he was the best thing that ever happened to us. >> reporter: ezra overn to wton the pride and joy of parents evan and keenan. >> i felt like my purpose finally came to me. this is what life is for. >> reporter: in december 2017, keenan says he placed ezra in a fisher-price rock and play sleeper at bedtime. when keenan awoke, he said he found his 5-month-old son face down and unresponsive. >> i picked him up and he was like a doll.
7:34 am
e was hard, and his face was blue and his nose was pushed in. >> reporter: the couple say they called 911 and began cpr before arriving at the hospital. >> i didn't want to believe it at that moment. so when they told me he was gone and i saw him for the last time, it just was the worst day of my life. >> reporter: ezra died three days before christmas. his parents blame fisher-price. >> they're supposed to be about safety, but that wasn't the case. >> reporter: fisher-price says the rock 'n play sleeper meets all applicable safety standards and adds it's essential that the product warnings and instructions are always followed. those warnings, which are also sewn on to the device, include a suffocation hazard and an advisory to stop using the product once an infant can roll over. last week, fisher-price issued an alert with the u.s. consumer product safety commission reducing the recommended age limit from about 5 months to 3. >> we do not believe that is
7:35 am
adequate. >> reporter: consumer reports' rachel peachman said the magazine found deaths linked to the sleeper of babies younger than 3 months. >> it's a risk for babies of any age. there's no circumstance where this is a safe environment for babies to sleep. >> reporter: the overtons say they want to help other parents avoid a tragedy like theirs. >> when you think about ezra now, how do you think of him? >> i think of him as a superhero baby. >> superhero baby? >> we think of that all the time. i just knew he was meant for some big purpose. i think of him as being the stopping point to having this product out there. so he's going to save a lot more babies and families this type of devastation. >> well, the overtons say they had no reason to suspect the rock 'n play sleeper was dangerous. they got it as a hand me down from a neighbor. the american academy of pediatrics recommend babies sleep on firm, flat surfaces.
7:36 am
anthony. >> this is just heartbreaking. >> it is. jan, before you go, i know we keep talking about fisher-price, but other companies make this little rocking thing. does this recall, do you think, apply to all of them? is there something specific with the fisher-price? >> this has been specifically -- and the recalls are recommended by the american academy of pediatrics, it's been specific to fisher-price, but the pediatrics organization also says that parents really shouldn't use any of these kind of devices because the baby should be kept flat and not with all this padding around them because if they turn over, you know, it could suffocate them. so i think it's a broad warning, but the proposed recall is pretty specific to this one company. >> all right, jan. >> i so, so feel for the overtons. they did nothing wrong. nothing wrong. >> that's what's heartbreaking. >> hopefully this is a good reminder and will save people's lives. >> jan, thank you. a debate over the hit song "old town road" is raising quons abt diversity in country music. ahead, why one of the biggest names in country music is addin

good morning to you. we are tracking new traffic issues this morning. one of them, good news it's the opposite of the commute direction, but it's causing a serious problem. this is northbound 101 just north of tiburon boulevard. just a few moments ago, they opened up a couple of lanes, but they had the entirety of northbound 101 shutdown. this is until 12:30 for emergency construction. my guess this is a landslide because it was loose on highway 101 earlier.
8:58 am
further south, another 280 accident northbound 280 at race street. one lane is blocked. it's slowing things down as you're making your way out of the south bay. and it is still pretty slow and go on the nippets. a beautiful day ahead with sunshine across the bay area. warm, spring-like temps and breezy. here's a live look from our treasure island camera. it's shaking. northwesterly winds, 10 to 12 miles per hour this morning. as we head through the afternoon, increasing 20 to 30 mile-per-hour winds in spots. temperatures mid to upper 60s to mid to low 70s. daytime highs running 3 to 6 degrees above average for this time of year. 65 in san francisco. 69 in oakland. and fremont. 71 san jose. windy for tomorrow, but dry through the next several days.
