superstar j.j. watt begins to spread some of the $18 million in donations he has helped raise. plus, a bizarre death and investigation at this year's 70,000 strong burning manifest val. msnbc live starts right now. zbloor good morning. we begin with breaking news overnight. that's rattling millions in the united states, including hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants. politico is reporting that president trump will soon halt daca. undocumented imbrants arrived as children. the president is expected to make an announcement on tuesday after wrestling what to do on the issue for months. here's the president back in february. take a listen. >> you are going to deal with daca with heart. i have to deal with a lot of politicians, don't forget, and i have to convince them that what i'm saying is right. >> and the president's decision
comes as up to ten states threaten to sue the administration if the program is not canceled by tomorrow. with nearly 800,000 daca recipients already shielded from deportation since the program started in 2012 the ramifications could be massive, impacting those so-called dreamers. reaction has been fierce and immediate. facebook ceo mark zuckerburg and former rival hillary clinton to actor george takai. lawmakers of all stripes are voicing their concerns, slamming his president for his yet to be announced decision. let's go to -- who is standing by for us. talk to me more about this. >> i can tell you that political reports saying that daca will end with a six-month delay. now, what the president is doing is giving congress enough time to pass a law if they want to keep that program going. now, politico is also reporting that president obama will break his silence and speak out over social media if this announcement does happen. critics of daca say that the
president doesn't have the legal authority to write immigration law. they applaud dismanltsing daca. >> one good thing. >> one good thing. >> we have to make a whole new set of standards. when people come in, they have to -- >> you are going to split up families and deport children? >> no. we're going to keep the families together. we have to keep the families together. they have to go. they have to go. >> what if they have no place to go? >> we will work with them. they have to go. >> the center released a statement saying this is child abuse under the guise of political policy -- or public policy. they say it's inhumane. those are comments echoed by a dreamer i spoke with here in maryland. he graduated high school, college, worked construction throughout, paid fines to be in
the daca program. got a chemical engineering degree, and now he could face deportation if this program ends. >> a lot of futurists certainly depending on this announcement. north korea released pictures of kim jong un inspecting what it claims is a hydrogen bomb that can be launched by an intercontinental ballistic missile. president trump called north korea a rogue nation whose words and actions are very hostile and dangerous to the united states and defense secretary mattis said this. >> we are not looking to the total annihilation of a country. namely, north korea. as i said, we have many options to do so.
>> nbc in beijing for us this morning. janice, it's going to be an emergency u.n. security council meeting held today 10:00 a.m. certainly all eyes on this situation. a very tense situation at the u.s. taking this very seriously. what's the latest from your end? sflo today there's the suggestion by some officials in south korea that north korea could be readying another ballistic missile test. they say there's evidence that preparations are underway. now, south korea has been responding today with bombing drills at dawn today. they were simulating ballistic missile strikes on north korea's nuclear testing site. they say they will continue with other drills. what is key is that this appears to be happening independent of any consultation with the united states. there has yet to be a phone call between president trump and
south korea's president. yesterday president trump took a swipe at president moon suggesting that his policy of appeasement just won't work, so there appears to be a very badly timed rift between the u.s. and south korea. >> any company doing business with north korea would not be able to trade with the united states. this is directed at china. the main patron for north korea. it's unclear whether china will exercise some of the moves that it can. namely, cutting off oil shipments to north korea because, of course, they don't want to trigger regime collapse, which could mean thousands of refugees across the border and geopolitical rebalancing in the region. >> you can't help but think kim jong un is trying to push as far as he can to see really what he can do here because it seems like one provocation after another. we'll have to wait and see what unfolds in the next couple of days. thank you. as texans recover from
harvey's devastation, donations from across the country continue pouring in. first to wisconsin where 26 cheese companies are sending over 27,000 pounds of cheese to the largest food bank. next, nfl star j.j. watt who a week ago set out to raise $200,000, but managed to amass over $18 million in donations for flood relief. the houston texan hasn't started using that money quite yet, but he, his teammates, and other volunteers unloaded semitrucks loaded with food, water, and other supplies, giving it to storm victims. in washington steve mnuchin is pressuring congress to raise the government's debt limit, arguing that not doing so could endanger nearly $8 billion in federal relief aid for texas. >> our first concern is that the state gets money, and to do that we need to make sure we raise
the debt limit. authorities have lifted the evacuation order in crosby, texas. another chemical plant that exploded multiple times. last night the plant's owner purposely burned the remaining trailers there to prevent any more explosions and make it safe for residents to return. >> are there still people that are having to sleep there overnight? how is everybody handling the fall-out from harvey? i believe it's been ten days after the beginning of that storm. >> yeah. it's been not long, if you can believe it, yasmin. the american red cross told us about 32,000 people in texas remain in about 200 shelters across the state. the american red cross also told us they serve so many meals. half a million meals. they ploid supplies for 85,000 people, and those numbers are staggering, but really when you think about the scope of hurricane harvey, it is not at
all surprising. here at the george r. brown convention center, which was the massive mega shelter that was set up here in downtown houston in the days after the storm. over the weekend they told us they had about 1,700 people here. that is down quite a bit when you think about the fact that they had more than 10,000 here just earlier last week. that is some good news. now, as far as some of the evacuation orders are concerned, the mayor had put in an evacuation order to the west side of houston. about 4, 600 dwellings. that remains in place. as you mention, arco chemical plant, that evacuation notice lifted. >> it's good to see the volunteers that we've been seeing video of and pictures of helping out there as well. we want to turn now to sarah rosario who is standing by in houston. sarah, i remember having covered hurricanes in the past.
it's very devastating. >> nay neighborhood called friendswood where it's labor day, but it's far from a holiday here in southeast texas. clean-up from harvey is just beginning. i'm in a neighborhood where most of the neighborhoods around me look like this with debris piled high along the streets here, but many people don't have any homes to return to. >> in the wake of hurricane harvey deadly floodwaters in southeast texas are finally starting to recede. leaving displaced homeowners with a mounting mess and heart break. >> 24 inches. it doesn't matter. >> reporter: while many, like
walter simmons, are salvaging what they can, others have nowhere to go. >> you have to take one day at a time. you can't say. you can get back. >> as debris piles high along streets, the damage is widespread, and the need is great. in cities like beaumont, texas, many are still without power. masses wait in line for drinking water as the military ships supplies in. >> taking a live look outside here. you can see just some of the things that people have piled here along the streets.
local officials say their concern will be to find housing as soon as possible. reporting live in houston, sarah rosar rosario, back to you. >> people have a long road ahead here. wishing the best for them. it's very emotional process. i believe they're likely going through that right now. thanks so much. we want to turn to nbc meteorologist bill karins. harvey is behind us. >> the trends over the weekend have been bad. i have nothing but bad news to spread to areas of the caribbean. this is a strong storm. it's category three. it's a major hurricane. this one is going to be near a lot of land areas over the next couple of days. let's get into the new advisory. just out from the national
hurricane center. hurricane irma. now you can see the eye here right there as the eye much the storm. when this is the islands here, there's puerto rico, and as we go through areas, the virgin islands. the latest stats, 150 miles per hour. it's still ticking south of due west. the whole trend over the weekend has been a little southerly, and that's why we don't think the storm is going to escape harmlessly out to sea. that looks very, very unlikely at this point. here's the brand new forecast path. look how much further south this is. the entire island of puerto rico is in a cone of uncertainty. we're going to come near antigua. the virgin islands, it's a close call. that's a 140-mile-per-hour storm. you don't want to get this that core. the whole northern portion of haiti and dominican republic, and then it's near cuba by the time we get through early saturday morning just south of the bahamas, and then at that point it's dangerously close to south florida too. the biggest word of advice, everyone in south florida, is get your preparations in now. all of our computer lines are in excellent agreement that the storm could get somewhere in the
bahamas and then as we go through saturday into sunday, it begins to pull a little bit further to the north. all of the east coast of florida, west coast of florida, and even south carolina and georgia, this is going to be a close call sunday, monday, tuesday. we'll hope something changes in this forecast. it looks like we're going to have another big hurricane very close to the united states and lower 48 as we go through sunday, monday, tuesday, and then puerto rico on wednesday. >> really hoping that that irma can sort of take a right turn and go right back out to sea. >> looks like another billion dollar disaster. >> just can't catch a breath this hurricane season, it seems. thanks. >> howe university came into saturday's football game against unlv as 45 point underdogs. in the final minutes howard took a 43-40 lead with a touchdown by quarterback kalen newton, but vegas, they couldn't answer in their last possession. howard walks away with the huge win and the college football record for biggest points spread
