robertson said last night the state has gone too far. jericka duncan has more. good morning to you. >> good morning. it will face extensive legal challenges, but there's growing momentum to capitalize on the support's first solid conservative majority in decades. >> all human life is precious. >> reporter: alabama's governor kay ivey signed the most restrictive abortion ban into law on wednesday saying it is time for the supreme court to e revisit roe v. wade. >> where is the money coming for support, people who aren't ready to be mothers or who aren't financially stable to take care of a child. >> you can't defer protecting the lives of unborn children because of cost. >> it is a law designed to end roe versus wade for good.

>> we all hope roe will be overturned. it is designed the day it is signed to go into effect to save the lives of women and children across this state. >> while states are passing some of the most restrictive legislation the country has seen in decades, other states are counteracting with laws protecting abortion rights. a very, very divisive issue. the governor said no matter which way you feel about this, she realizes this is not enforceable right now. she alluded to that in what she said in her statement. she knows this is something that's going to face a lot of legal challenges. we've seen it before. with this being the most restrictive we have seen they are expecting a fight. >> it's chilling for a lot of people. thank you. president trump says there is no infighting in the white house over iran. he's frustrated with advisers who want the u.s. to take strong action against iran. administration officials will
brief congressional leaders today on the threat they see to americans in that region. david martin is at the pentagon with more on this story. david, good morning to you. >> good morning. u.s. officials insist they have hard evidence on the threat from iran including pictures of ballistic missiles loaded on iranian boats, but until the trump administration produces some of this intelligence, there will be ntestions about how this confrontation began and where it is headed. >> we believe that escalation of tension in the region is not in the interest of anybody. >> overnight in tokyo, iran's foreign minister criticized the u.s. for unnecessary provocation. >> iran will not be the party beginning the escalation, but we will certainly defend ourselves. >> back at home, lawmakers on both sides are demanding details on the specific threats. >> i have no idea what threats are beyond what i read in the paper. >> we should be getting a
briefing and we should be getting it before there are more developments. >> it's a series of blind escalations without any endgame. >> reporter: there's also skepticism among u.s. allies including the iraqis in part because some of the intelligence originated with israel. but u.s. officials insist tips from israel have been confirmed by american intelligence. this threat is real, a senior state department official told reporters. democrats raised the specter of the 2003 invasion of iraq when the u.s. went to war on the false belief that saddam hussein was hiding weapons of mass destruction. >> we were falsely led into a military engagement in iraq which is one of the biggest mistakes we have had in foreign policy. >> but the american military build-up continues. a strike group headed by the "uss lincoln" has now arrived in waters south to the entrance of the persian gulf. norah?
the president is set to unveil a plan for big changes to the nation's legal system. he's repeatedly denounced the rush of migrants to the southern border. in today's speech, the president will focus on people he believed should come to america. ben tracy is at the white house with details. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president wants a merit-based immigration system. a senior white house official tells us this is the most detailed immigration plan ever put out but it is what's not in the plan that makes it dead on arrival on capitol hill. >> i don't think most countries are giving us their finest. >> reporter: on wednesday president trump sounded a lot like candidate trump. his attacks on the nation's immigration system are the same because so far he's been unable to change it, even when the republicans held both the house and senate. >> it's a tough issue. we'll see how it plays out. it's a good faith effort on their part. >> reporter: now, staring down re-election, the white house has
a new plan, one unlikely to get through congress. >> i'm not encouraged, i hit to say that. >> reporter: the president is proposed a merit-based immigration system that assigned points based on specific skills, education, income level, and if they speak english. this would largely replace the current system in which green cards are awarded mainly based on family connections and a lottery. the president's plan would also increase border security including wall construction in high-priority areas. jared kushner, the president's son-in-law, has designed the proposal, and has been trying to sell it to republicans on capitol hill. >> you're going to have to get democrats in the room. >> reporter: it's a nonstarter for most democrats because i does not address the issue of undocumented immigrants including so-called dreamers who came to the u.s. as children. it also doesn't fix the problem of families who have been separated. >> i'm skeptical as to whether he truly wants to deal with immigration reform. >> reporter: i asked white house press secretary sarah sanders
why the proposal doesn't include issues like undocumented immigrants and the dreamers. she said those issues were intentionally left out because in the past they have been too divisive. >> thank you, ben. the crowded democratic presidential race has one more name in it. new york mayor bill de blasio has announced he is running. in a video he promised to put working people first and called president trump a bully. de blasio makes it an even two dozen, 24 candidates for the democratic nomination. in our next hour ed o'keefe looks at the list of 2020 challengers. >> well, people have lots of options. isn't that a good thing? the cause of a dramatic helicopter crash in the hudson river near manhattan is still a mystery this morning. video shows the chopper spinning out of control and slamming into the water yesterday afternoon. the pilot managed to escape and is okay. david begnaud is near the scene with more on what happened
david, good morning to you. >> reporter: gayle, it's raining out right now. tourists were out. a lot of people thought the helicopter pilot was trying to do a stunt before the chopper plunged into the water. crowds of people were watching. the helicopter was clearly in distress, spiralling in the air and then just dropping from the sky. >> i thought he was doing some tricks. i thought it was a private ride and he was doing tricks. >> the pilot had refueled. he attempted to leave and reposition it to land again and it came down. >> reporter: the pilot eric morales deflated the yellow pontoons to keep the chopper from sinking. a nearby ferry picked him up. >> he was hanging onto the side. we approached him slow and asked if he was okay. >> reporter: the chopper went down about 150 feet from the
heli-port where it was supposed to land. police say morales was the only one onboard and he walked away with just a cut on his hand. last year a sight-seeing chopper owned by liberty helicopters crashed on the east side of manhattan. that helicopter sank when the pontoons didn't deploy properly. five people on board died when they couldn't break free from their safety harnesses. so the national transportation safety board is going to investigate what happened here. there was substantial damage, but, again, the pilot got away with just a cut on his wrist. >> he's lucky indeed. david begnaud in the rain. thank you, david. a deadly midair collision in california is also under investigation. two crop dusting planes were seeding rice fields when they crashed about 20 miles north of sacramento. the wrecked planes were found hundreds of feet apart. one plane was split into pieces. the pilots of both planes were killed.
georgetown is expelling two students connected to the college admissions scandal. this after one of the students filed a lawsuit against the university. his father pleaded guilty last week to paying $400,000 to secure his son's admission. now, he admitted to falsifying his son's application to say that he was a tennis recruit. adam said he knew nothing about the fraud or anything his father had done. the lawsuit claims the school wants to unfairly punish him and the university has denied him due process. georgetown says it does not comment on pending litigation, but each student was given multiple opportunities to respond and provide information. this story is tough because adam is claiming the school should have known that he didn't play tennis. they should have looked at his records and known he should not have been on the team. that's galling for a lot of people to hear that.
>> the amount of money and the failure to accept responsibility for wrongdoing. >> even though he says he didn't know his father was involved, you think most people would just go away quietly. that's not happening here. the dallas catholic diocese is defending its response to sex abuse claims against priests after police raided several of its properties. officers searched so-called secret archives yesterday. church officials are accused of impeding an investigation. nikki battiste shows us the dramatic developments. good morning. >> john, good morning. in dallas the diocese named 300 of its priests who had been accused of sec abuse. they raided because they say the diocese hid information from investigators. >> i stand confident that we are doing what's right. >> the bishop says they have
cooperated but dallas police still seized boxes of evidence from secret archives at three locations. this investigation began last child sex abuse after local priest edmund perez became public. now more victims came forward with claims against other priests. >> detectives are investigating at least five additional allegations of child abuse against other suspects. >> according to affidavits obtained by cbs news, police say they questioned the diocese about missing details from a file in a in a 2004 case. only after that did the diocese reveal that 51 payments had been left out which included one victim's claim of sex abuse. the diocese provided those pages three weeks later. the raid is the second in texas in just six months. >> will those name be on the list? >> reporter: in november cbs news began investigating daniel
denardo for allegedly covering up abuse. >> i would request to do this at another time. >> we've been requesting for we would love to sit down. >> at another time, yes. >> do you have anything to say to survivors and victims. >> as a survivor, it's huge. >> following this latest raid, monica baez who said she was abused as a toddler in the '70s by her priest offered hope to other survivors. >> don't let them win. don't let the perpetrator take your life over. they will have justice in one way or another. >> the five priests accused of child sex abuse in the affidavit are no longer in active ministry. the dallas police department told cbs news no arrests wither made in the raid, throw is an active arrest warrant for ed mundo perez, but he's on the run. >> i applaud the work of the prosecutors and law enforcement officials. >> that's incredible.
>> thank you. great reporting, nikki. thanks for staying on top of this. a fleet of jeeps surrounded a church to honor a student killed during a rampage in colorado. the stage was decorated with all the things he loved. a kayak, a machine build by the robotics team too. the 18-year-old died after tackling an attacker in the classroom last week. witnesses say it was his bravery that saved lives. >> i remember the story david begnaud did earlier this week when he spoke with his parents and the dad saying how proud he was of him. on one hand he wishes he would have turned and gone in the other direction. that's their only child. the more you hear about this story and this young man it's heartbreaking to hear. he's being remembered and that's a good thing. this morning tiger woods is getting ready for the 101st pga championship. ahead, a look at his comeback

dream home last summer, they never imagined this would be their reality. 19,000 buildings were reduced to ash in the camp fire. melted metal, plastic, and wood, creating this toxic mix that officials say six months later has contaminated the town of paradise's water pipes.di they have tested positive for elevated levels of cancer-causing benzene. >> if my kids get cancer i will never forgive myself. >> reporter: they say it was either water meters or toxic air in the fire that was sucked into the system. >> we've tested about 500 service lines at this time and about 30% have come up with contamination. >> reporter: kevin phillips and his team are testing the water along 173 miles of pipeline to find out which sections need to be replaced. that alone could take two years. for now the water is unusable. >> the process we're facing is monumental. it's something that there's no
game plan that's been written for it. >> it's definitely difficult to have a standing home in paradise right now. at times i wish it was gone. >> reporter: massive water tanks are their lifeline for cooking and bathing. how much is this costing your family? >> $200 to $300 every few weeks. >> reporter: farmers say they'll soon stop reimbursing them for the fill-ups. they say you get one more refill. i say it's contaminating. but that's not our policy. we tell our girls, no more baths. try to do two minutes. >> reporter: this family also relies on their water tank. >> we don't want to take chances with our babies. for us it was a really big peace of mind. we wanted some security. >> reporter: securing safe water is also key for paradise businesses and schools that hope to eventually re-open. there were about 1,200

the mother's health was at risk. >> she says it's time for the supreme court to reconside reconsider roe versus wade, the ruling that established a constitutional right to an abortion. already this year mississippi, ohio, kentucky and georgia have passed new laws to ban abortions once the fetal heartbeat is detected. most women don't know that soon if they are pregnant. president trump says he decides how the u.s. deals with iran and rejects reports of conflict with his national security team. administration official also brief congressional leaders today after lawmakers in both parties demanded to see evidence that iran's actions are putting americans at risk. iran's foreign minister accused the u.s. overnight of escalating tensions in the region unnecessarily, that includes sending "abraham lincoln" to the persian gulf with a long with bombers and other military assets. >> the u.s. acted on intelligence showing iran is gearing up for possible attacks against americans. the president says he will talk about iran with switzerland's

33-year-old rachael deltondo was gunned down in the driveway of her parents' home in alequippa, pennsylvania just outside of pittsburgh. multiple leads but no arrests made. many blame the lack of arrests on an understaffed police department. >> reporter: just over a year ago, on mother's day 2018, 33-year-old rachael deltondo was shot several times at close range, just outside her home. her father, joe deltondo, was asleep by the side door, when he heard the shots. >> i miss her walking in the door. she was our life. she was our life. >> reporter: rachael's death is the ninth unsolved murder in the city of alequippa, pennsylvania, although there appear to be plenty of avenues for police to investigate starting with
21-year-old sheldon jeter. rachael's mother, lisa. >> he was obsessed with her. he told me he's in love with her. >> michael santacol 'and i represent sheldon jeter. it's fair to say he's a suspect but there is a cast of characters that all could be considered suspects. i would say her fiance is a possible suspect. >> i'm frank cotropa, ex-foeian say of rachael deltondo. >> reporter: why do you think people think you were involved somehow? >> we had a long relationship. >> she told me a long time ago her ex-fiance was going to kill her. >> reporter: frank i'm going to ask you directly, did you have anything to do with the death of rainle deltondo? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: rachael told her parents she was cooperating in an ongoing investigation by state police into alleged corruption in the alequippa police department, and that she had received death threats. >> she was afraid of the police,
deathly afraid of police. she said they're falling ollowi. >> reporter: joe percent value was assistant chief of police when rachael was murdered. do you think that anyone in the police department was involved in any way? in rachael's death? >> you never know. alequippa is a small community with new york problems. >> erin moriarty joins us at the table. that was a great sound bite. >> it's a cautionary tale how important it is to have a functional police department. you can't solve or prevent crime if you don't, number one, have a functional police department, and have people who have faith in the police department. >> well, so here's whey don't understand. why was the local teacher involved in a corruption investigation of the police department? >> we were kind of surprised by that, too, and it's not clear what she knew but there was no question she was talking to state police and the state police have been investigating allegations of corruption within the police department, within the city.
she then said she was being followed by police officers. she did get death threats, texts like "you won't live to see the end of 2018." she didn't. and so i think people think that there could have been a hit, but then the d.a. says no, no, this is not a problem of what she knew, but who she knew, that this was a crime of passion. if you had a really functional police department that was still working on it -- >> how dysfunctional were they? >> right, in less than a month after she was murdered, there were three police chiefs, in one week, sorry, three police chiefs in one week, and in fact, they turned over the investigation into her murder to the county. >> are they any closer to finding rachael's killer? >> if you talk to the d.a., they are, but it's been a year and usually dan tena tests don't ta full year. that's what we're told is the holdup. >> you can feel and see the parents' pain. sad story for them.

each week, so they're not, we're not technically ahead in scripts. they kind of like to see how the story lines go, so a lot of people over the years were like what's going to happen over the next three episodes? our writers didn't even know and they'd play it by ear. we were like a week ahead, barely a week ahead of airing and it's kind of what worked for our show. >> i'm curious about your next chapter. johnny's friend said he has the biggest heart, one of the smartest brains. >> he does. >> and he's a really good musician. >> oh, waldon got into your ears. >> johnny, what's yours, kaley? >> i started my production company a year and a half ago and a lot of stuff in development. i'm enjoying the producing hat. a new path for me. >> quickly, johnny, i'm afraid, we have our own next chapter to get to. >> all right, mine's coming. don't worry. >> i got to tell mine. you didn't get to tell yours. >> ladies first. >> stay tuned. thank you so much.
