2:06 am
regulate immigration asarely wi president's power. but justice sonya sotomayor says the pain and suffering it inflicts on countless families and individuals, many of whom are u.s. citizens. it marks an end to fifteen months over battles over a key part of the immigration policy. roughly one year ago the president tweeted this. the justice department should have stayed with the original travel ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to the supreme court. yesterday, he actually celebrated the justices' decision. watch this. >> tremendous success, tremendous victory for the american people and for our constitution. this is a great victory for our constitution. we have to be tough and we have to be safe and we have to be secure. at a minimum, we have to make
2:07 am
sure that we prevent people coming into the country. we know who's coming in, we know where they're coming from. you just have to know who's coming here. the ruling shows all of the attacks from media and democrat politicians are wrong and turned out to be very wrong. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell is celebrating the decision on the travel ban. neil gore sich's role in the ruling. famously blocked president obama from filling that seat after scalia's death in 2016 tha allowed president trump to nominate gorsuch. they confronted mcconnell and his wife, as they left an event at georgetown university. they played video of migrant
2:08 am
children crying after taken. asking mcconnell why are you separating families. second chao could be seen shouting back for them to leave her husband alone. migrant children taken from the government from mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, remain separated. in a hearing on prescription drugs yesterday, health and human services secretary alex they have custody of 2047 id migrant kids, just six less than they said saturday. he said that several hundred have been reunified with family members, as long as that person is not in detention. last night hhs says it is receiving separated kids if there's a credible question of jeopardy or criminality. he claimed it is easy to look at children in this exchange with democrats.
2:09 am
>> how many parents have been told where their kids are? >> every parent has access to know where their child is. we want to ensure. >> how many parents are actually told where their k are. you said they have access. this is just in my view part of the rosy responses the american people have been getting and it sure doesn't line up with the firsthand accounts parents that i hear from that desperately want to know where their kids are. >> there's no reason why any parent would not know where their child is located. i could at the key strokes, sat on the orr portal with basic key strokes within seconds could find any child in our care for any parent. >> so others say the process has been much more difficult and bewildering for families. here is gabe gutierrez speaking with the director of migrants humanitarian group in el paso.
2:10 am
>> how easy for migrants to hop on a computer? >> we are talking about people from rural communities in mexico or guatemala, central america. they don't have computers. they don't know how they work. they havet. they much less have capacity to look in databases. if they have some support, technical support and somebody is helping with that, i would believe it. >> how difficult has it been to match up parents with their children? >> extremely. seems there's no plan. it is very hectic. we have parents looking for their children. they're crying, looking elsewhere for help and support to know where are the children. that's another crisis on top of the crisis of being separated. >> we're seeing the first legal
2:11 am
challenge to the family separation policy. 17 states and district of columbia sued the trump administration in an effort to force officials to reunite migrant families, also led by washington state and all democratic attorneys general, claims the separation policy violates the fifth amendment, guarantees due process, equal protection and asylum laws. talk about some of this stuff. joining us, reporter for "the washington post," eugene scott. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so the trump administration feeling a blow to one of the policies when a california federal judge ordered families be reunited within 30 days in the wake of the zero tolerance policy. we still as you just heard do not have a lot of answers where some of the young kids are being held. how realistic is it considering the limitations that the families have? how realistic is the time frame for families to be reunited?
2:12 am
>> not realistic at all. one of the reasons we don't have answers on where many of the young people are compared to where their parents are is because the t administration appears not to know. we get mixed answers from people in the administration. and that's what happens when you implement a policy to separate families with no plan to reunite them. and that's what happened here. >> do we foresee some policy change happening if this goes and on and kids are separated from parents? >> there have to be for a few reasons. one, americans are demanding that. we're seeing push back both sides of the aisle, expressing concern how this will be resolved. furthermore, this is likely to become a big mid term campaign issue, those wanting to keep their seats in addition to actually helping these families have to work towards a solution if they want the support of voters. >> seeing the runup to mid terms, there are shakeups in the primaries across the country.
2:13 am
what are some that could have lasting effects? >> what we saw in new york, what could be the youngest woman to represent a district in congress, and going against a very establishment candidate who was as we know looked at as future successor to nancy pelosi. it is telling where the base is. it is not a huge surprise, seeing people with frustration from the left with those representing them. when you go to the right, mitt romney's win was not a big surprise, but it did speak to the desire by some republicans to see the party move from trumpism into something more establishment and for lack of a better word civil. >> i think it is telling with the new faces, young blood in

welme back. i am yasmine vossoughian with louis bergdorf. president trump is celebrating a major political victory after
2:30 am
the supreme court ruled to uphold his controversial travel ban. the order upheld is a far cry from the one ruled out amid the confusion and turmoil of theear. justice correspondent pete williams has more on this. >> reporter: after a year and a half of confusion, chaos at u.s. airports for those caught up in the first travel ban. repeated smack downs from the courts and the white house, the court says the latest one can stand. the supreme court upholds trump travel ban, president trump tweeted, led by john roberts, they said it is legal as presidential act to protect national security. an important difference that this one was based on review of how well more than 200 countries do in fighting terrorism and verifying identity of visa applicants. it restricts travel from five muslim countries. iran, libya, somalia, syria, yemen. the ruling notes the president's
2:31 am
anti-muslim statements in the campaign and in office. >> donald j. trump is calling for total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> reporter: they said apart from religious hostility, it is based on legitimate concerns for the country's safety and that's what counts. >> the justices said because the travel ban raises an issue of national security, they're not going to get involved in figuring out what the tweet means or campaign statement means. >> reporter: in a blistering opinion, soto mayor said it was motivated by an moss tee for the group and calls it gravely wrong. >> the federal courts forced the president to refigure the policy. >> reporter: it is a defeat. she wanted to get her relatives
2:32 am
here. >> my grandparents and auntsnd uncles in libya can't come. i had a wedding planned last week, they weren't able to attend. >> reporter: it is a legal victory for president trump and an important statement from the supreme court on the extent of presidential power. the court upheld the travel ban, in spite of president trump's ant anti-muslim statements. a federal judge ordered them to reunite families. 2,000 are still separated according to health and human services. all this after president trump called for increase in border wall funding and spoke about what he called the insane requirement for due process. >> we have the worst immigration laws in the history of the world, okay? it's a joke. people can't believe it. other countries look at us and
2:33 am
say how is that possible. somebody touches our land, we take them to a court, to a judge. they want us to choose 5,000 judges. how do you choose 5,000 judges. go to the barbershop, make them a judge. they want 5,000 judges more. it is crazy. other countries, it is called i'm sorry, you can't come in, you have to leave. this one we have judges. it is a hodgege of laws put together over the years. we have to change it. it's so simple. it is called i'm sorry you can't come in. you have to come in through a legal process. you don't have to see a judge. >> it remains unclear what the president is referring to when he says 5,000 judges. the u.s. has about 330 immigration judges. there are proposals to double that to about 750, but 5,000. yesterday, attorney general
2:34 am
jeff sessions made light of the child separation crisis spurred by the trump administration policy at the border. hundreds of protesters gathered in downtown los angeles where he was speaking. two dozen members of clergy linked arms, sat side by side in the street. police led them away in handcuffs after they refused to disburse. inside, sessions spoke at a conservative legal group and defended the policy that separated children away from parents as the audience clapd and applauded. >> rhetoric we hear has become radicalized. we hear views on television today that are on the lunatic fringe frankly, what is perhaps more galling, the hypocrisy. these same people live in gated
2:35 am
communities, and events you have to have an id to hear them speak. like a little security around themselves. if you try to scale the fence, believe me, they would be even too happy to have you arrested and separated from your children. >> lot of parents and kids separated wouldn't find that funny. back with us, eugene scott from "the washington post." good to see you again. let's talk about the supreme court upholding the travel ban. the president sees it as a win. it is a watered down version of the first one put in place. the president didn't necessarily agree with when it was watered down at the time. do you think that this win could embolden trump on immigration? >> absolutely.
2:36 am
he will view the ruling as something that affirms his immigration policy and philosophy, when it comes to those seeking american citizenship or being here from countries that he views as problematic. when he was on the campaign trail, he was vocal about the idea that some countries and nations had such a fundamental problem when it came to national security that their inhabitants shouldn't be in america. i'm sure he will point to the ruling as justification for the idea. >> trump is not backing down his call for safer borders and the wall, the famous wall of president trump. he said he needs to help secure that. he asked congress for more money, and that he already asked for 25 billion that he wants. what is the likelihood he would get what he's asking for here? >> i mean, if this is a president that's increasingly attracting support of republicans in the party, but republican lawmakers have
2:37 am
consistently been vocal about lack of support for a wall, at least overall because how costly i could be to the american people and how inconsistent with the original pledge to have mexico fund such a project. in addition to the fact that he is not going to get democrats on board, despite on-going pressure from the right that perhaps democrats can see on this issue. they can get the immigration plan passed they would like to. >> good to see you. >> thank you. despite sharp critique of the special counsel's actions in the paul manafort case, a federal judge ruled indictment against the former campaign chairman should stand. the president and his allies seized on the remarks last month. that question if bank and tax fraud charges were outside of the special counsel's scope of authority. in fact, here's the president praising judge ellis shortly after the remarks were
2:38 am
published. >> so just when i'm walking on the stage a highly respected judge in virginia made statements. it says "the wall street journal," says judge questions mueller's authority to prosecute manafort. judge ts ellis who is really something very special i hear from many standpoints, he's a respected person. >> in his opinion filed yesterday, judge ellis, a reagan appointee said it was clear that bob mueller followed the money from pro-russian officials to manafort. the judge added no interpretive gymnastics are necessary to find it falls within the authority given by special counsel by the deputy attorney general. the president hasn't said whether he still thinks the
2:39 am
judge is quote, something special. manafort's trial begins next month. faces a separate trial in washington in september. marged with witness tamplanth, is awaiting both trials in jail and appealing that decision. for someone known to tell untreats now and thu un -- untruths now and then, trump made 103 false claims last week, an average of 15 per day. that shattered the previous one week record of 60 from back in march. president trump makes an average of 101 false claims a month. still ahead, one former vice president speaks out on president trump's constant attacks on america's allies, plus a frightening scene for airline passengers at one major american airport as a man in his underwear comes running across the tarmac.

welcome back. joining us from washington with a look at axios a.m. national political reporter for axios, jonathan swan. good morning to you. talk to us about axios' one big thing today. >> ahead of the potential summit between donald trump and vladimir putin, i interviewed four senior officials from nato member nations. there was very consistent concern across all of these
2:56 am
officials about the summit. and the main concern was very starkly illustrated to me by poland senator and secretary of state anna maria anders, is that putin will charm donald trump into giving something away and their summit will be a much warmer affair than the nato summit where members are expecting donald trump to beat them up about not paying enough. >> i got an email that putin is going to be meeting with bolton as well today. in moscow from russian state media. what do you make of this new development? >> i only found out about two minutes ago. your wonderful producer sent me the email. i haven't had time to process this. but look, we know how important the negotiations are for this
2:57 am
summit. they're negotiating over timing for the summit. location, and what's on the agenda. when i've spoke ton officials who have been in touch with the white house, foreign officials and they say the white house has been very vague about what they want to accomplish in this meeting. and part of that is because the view that certainly these foreign officials have gotten from the white house is that donald trump mself doesn't know what deliverables he wants to achieve from this meeting. his view is just get me in the room with the guy. >> it's like a precursor, as we saw with pompeo, meeting with the officials before the meeting in singapore. >> let's talk about the primary from last night. the shakeup, the loss by democrat joe crowley, a major democrat there thinking he was going to take over pelosi's spot. obviously that's not happening now. whose seat is safe here going forward? >> well look, nobody's clearly. this was a race on nobody's radar. nobody's radar. hard, seasoned political

reporters were melting down on twitter last night. you could almost see the steam coming out of their heads. and no one thought this was possible. he was in line potentially to replace nancy pelosi for speaker. what it shows, i think is that the progressive energy is overtaking the democratic party and we talk about an identity crisis. it's very clear where the energy and the momentum is. it's on the left of the party. and remember, this is a 28-year-old, the person who beat joe crowley, latina socialist who campaigned to get rid of immigration and customs enforcement agency. i mean this is, very, very clear where the energy in the party lies. >> she seems very surprised by her win i got to say, it was quite an unbelievable loss for crowley. do you think there's going to be a renewed talk about a change in the democratic party's leadership? >> well i don't know about renewed, it's a constant talk. i mean almost any new candidate who gets interviewed on
2:59 am
television is asked will you support nancy pelosi for speaker. think this group of leadership, they're old, let's be honest. they're very old. and there's a hunger among a large proportion of these younger members for generational change. so these questions are not going to go away. >> i quickly want to touch on a new poll out this morning from axios and survey monkey. how has trump's presidency impacted republicans' trust in news organizations that you've been seeing from this poll? >> this poll is stunning. i mean we're publishing it this morning in axios a.m. 92% of republicans of and republican-liening voters, believe that the news sources purposely report fake or false or misleading news. let that sink in. >> we'll be reading axios a.m. in just a little bit. can you sign up for the newsletter at signup.axios.com.

i'm yasmin vossoughian alongside louis burgdorf, "morning joe" starts right now. i have put in place a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry. on our southwest border. if you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you. and that child may be separated from you as required by law. >> the american people don't like the idea that we're separating families. we never really intended to do that. >> the rhetoric we hear from the other side on this issue, as on many others has become radicalized. we hear views on television today, that are on the lunatic fringe, frankly. and what is perhapsore galling is hypocrisy. the same people live in gated communities, many of them and are featured at events where you have to have an i.d. to even
