good morning, america. new overnight, new executive order. president donald trump weighs his options after that new setback in court over his controversial travel ban. >> we'll win that battle. we have a lot of other options including just filing a brand-new order. as the president focus on diplomacy this morning, the calls for michael flirn to be suspended over a phone call. what did he tell a russian diplomat. immigration ring. the roundup across the country targeting certain undocumented immigrants. abc's jim avila has an exclusive interview with the new homeland security secretary. >> men and women of i.c.e. and homeland security are doing this completely legally. plus, the underground tour into the winding tunnels reportedly used by drug
smugglers asmuggl smugglers on the u.s. border. earthquake hitting the philippines in the middle of the night. buildings crumbling. bridges broken and runways ripped open. hampering the rescue efforts. and caught on camera a school bus filled with high school students slams into a van and flipped on its side. >> seemed like everything was in slow motion. >> the latest on the injured this morning. hey, good morning. happy saturday. let's look at mar-a-lago, the president is waking up with powerful guests in residence. the prime minister of japan and his wife. >> looks so peaceful and beautiful and trump and prime minister abe in the white house on friday engaging in a very long handshake right here. they got a whole lot of people talking on social media. this morning, in florida they will be golfing together's mar-a-lago. >> t p
domestic concerns including big questions about how to proceed after repeated setbacks in court over that travel ban. could the president simply draft a new executive order here? >> that seems to be a likely option. meantime, questions about a key white house figure, national security adviser michael flynn. were his contacts with the russian ambassador illegal? we have team coverage and kick it off with abc's david wright who is outside mar-a-lago. hi, david. >> reporter: hi, paula. hi, dan. on the way down here, president trump hinted that a do-over of the travel ban is a strong possibility after those setbacks in court. the white house is regrouping here this weekend over rounds of diplomacy and golf. as air force one touched down here in palm beach, president trump insisted he's not deterred by his losses in court over the travel ban. >> we'll win that battle. but we also have a lot of other options including just filing a brand-new order on monday. >> is that your plan. >> could very well be
like to keep you -- you know, i'd like to surprise you. >> reporter: the white house says any new order would have a much narrower scope by suspending new rinks from the self-countries on trump's list. anyone already cleared would be allowed to keep their visas. but the administration is still plotting its court strategy too. one senior official tells us all options are on the table. among them, the possibility of an en banc review. an 11-judge panel reconsidering the unanimous ruling by the three-judge panel of the appeals court this week. meanwhile, the president is focusing on diplomacy. >> on behalf of the american people, i welcome you to the very famous white house. >> reporter: talking trade and defense with japanese prime minister shinzo abe. and sharing such a long handshake the prime minister flinched.
earlier in the day trump flinched over taiwan. in a phone call with his chinese counterpart trump reassured the chinese finally that the u.s. will honor the one china policy. thereby averting confrontation but according to many, appearing weak. >> let me pick up on that. this morning "the new york times" as we know a fafrning punching bag for the president reported that analysts are saying trump handed china a victory and sullied his reputation with its leader as a tough negotiator who ought to be feared. is trump perhaps seeing that the world is more complicated when you're in the oval office than when it is out on the campaign trail? >> reporter: maybe. the chinese will certainly see this as a victory. here the two leaders squared off over an issue of crucial importance to china. their man stood his ground, trump blinked and according to one expert, he'll come off looking to china like a paper tiger. dan, paula. >> more to come on this. thank you.
facing another simmering story. the national security adviser michael flynn is under fire over a conversation he had with a russian diplomat before the inauguration. did they discuss u.s. sanctions and was that against the law? abc's gloria rivera has the latest from our d.c. bureau. gloria, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, dan. this the latest in what has been a strained relationship between the u.s. and russia. it all started after former president obama imposed sanctions on russia for meddling in the u.s. election. now the national security adviser is under fire for his interactions with russia after that. this morning, top democrats on the house intelligence committee are calling for national security adviser michael flynn to be investigated. some suggesting he may not be fit to serve. president trump claiming to be unaware flynn is under renewed scrutiny for a pair of december phone conversations with a russian diplomat. >> i don't know about it. i haven't seen it. what report is that? >> reporter: trump n
too will examine allegations surrounding flynn's december 29th call to ambassador sergey kislyak. "the washington post" first reporting the two discussed sanctions imposed by former president obama that same day. >> it's sort of sets up this idea was there a quid pro quo offered even before president trump had been inaugurated. >> reporter: officials confirming to abc news the issue was discussed in the con tech that the incoming administration might review the sanctions imposed over russian interference in the presidential election. as recently as wednesday, flynn denying the sanctions came up at all. now saying he doesn't recall the topic coming up but isn't completely certain. >> i have talked to general flynn. none of that came up. >> reporter: others in the trump administration had repeatedly denies any talk of it. >> there was one call to talk about a conference in syria on isis and setting up a call between president putin and president trump. >> reporter: on friday flynn reportedly making
to smooth things over with vice president mike pence. >> what i can confirm after speaking to him about it those conversations that happened to occur around the time that the united states took action to expel diplomats had nothing whatsoever to do with those sanctions. >> reporter: all right, so, gloria, mike flynn who was part of the incoming administration at the time in december, so he has discussions with the russian ambassador. some may be wondering why is this potentially a big deal? it was part of the transition of power. >> reporter: pence has yet to comment on flynn's reversal. both were at the white house for the visit from the japanese prime minister. why important? two stands out. there is a law that prohibits civilians from engaging with politicians to influence policy. but i'm also told observers find it odd because flynn as the former director of the defense intelligence agency would have
texts were being monitored. so, why then flip-flop on what was said? paula. >> certainly a lot of questions remain, gloria, thank you. we want to move to an abc news exclusive. the new homeland security secretary, john kelly, paying a visit to the mexican border. our jim avila injoed him for a look at the underground tunnels in california that reportedly are used by drug smugglers. all of this as federal agents hold immigration raids across the country. >> reporter: is this the deportation force candidate donald trump spoke of in his campaign for president? across the u.s. and several major american cities, isis agents are conducting what they call a surge, picking up and deporting undocumented immigrants with criminal records including mothers and fathers who have raised children here. >> they called me in at 7:00 a.m. telling me that my father was being deported and he got captured. >> reporter: immigration groups claim the criminal records include nonviolent felonies such
as fake social security cards, and duis where no one was injured but the new homeland security secretary-general john kelly who accompanied isis agents on raids friday in san diego before touring a border tunnel told me everyone deported deserved it. are those the bad ombres that the president you and he feel need to be returned to mexico. >> after being picked up and ported they're the right people. the men and women of isis and homeland security are doing it legally. >> reporter: he defends the price of the border wall now estimated between $0 billion to $25 billion in an internal homeland security document seen by reuters. are you convinced that it's still of value, taxpayers will get their money's worth with a wall. >> i don't know what the alternative is. the drugs alone are costing americans $250 billion a year. >> reporter: worth it, kelly says, even though a wall will not deter the tunnels dug beneath. this tum is about 90 fee
and about 4 football fields long. now, i'm 6 feet tall and i can nearly stand up straight in it. >> no single wall will -- physical barrier will stop everything. it's got to be backed up by people. >> reporter: the trump administration delivering on its promise to crack down on illegal immigration even if it's expensive and even if it splits families living here for years. for "good morning america," jim avila, abc news, along the border in southern california. >> fascinating, jim, thank you. we move on to the breaking news this morning. a powerful earthquake hitting the philippines in the middle of the night. there are deaths and injuries and frantic rescue efforts happening as we speak and abc's bob woodruff is in the region. bob. >> reporter: good morning, dan. yeah, this morning, these rescuers are now combing through the rubble from friday's devastating earthquake. a 6.5 in magnitude the quake just struck in the surigao dell norte provin s
the night and centered near densely populated urban areas. it tore through the homes, leveled commercial buildings and gas stations and sent chunks of concrete from apartments crashing down on cars below. much of the city is still without power and response teams from the national government are rushing more than 8,000 emergency food packs to families in the harder to reach areas. survivors from the city are now making their way back to damaged homes and businesses. now, experts are saying that the quake was likely triggered by the philippines fault, part of that highly active zone known as the ring of fire which makes seismic activity a somewhat routine part of life for countries along its edges. this morning with visibly shattered roadways and massive cracks, running through the airport runways, engineers are assessing the damage and preparing for possible aftershocks.
all right. bob woodruff, thanks for reporting. back at home a terrifying accident. all caught on camera involving a school bus. that bus loaded with high school basketball players and cheerleaders, look at this, on its way to a game in illinois. it slams into a van and then flips over on its side. abc's adrienne bankert has more from school bus depot in new york for us. hi, adrienne. >> reporter: hello to you, paula. yes, it's video like this from this weekend from illinois that leaves you as a mom or dad breathless. and it's crashes like these, one of two close calls this month that has a lot of legislators paying attention, all caught on camera. a near tragedy caught on camera. a school bus flipping onto its side with 31 eye schoolers on board. watch as the driver of this vehicle allegedly under the influence pulls out in front of the bus, the bus smashing into the van flipping on its side skidding across the roadway before finally coming to a stop hund
>> seemed like everything was in slow motion. i was thinking, you know, please don't tip over and you could tell that's what was going to happen. everybody ended up on one side of the bus. >> reporter: five students rushed to the hospital are later released. >> we're very fortunate to have walked away. >> reporter: this crash not even the first caught on camera this month. last thursday in ohio, video captures the moment these students were tossed out of their seats when their bus crashed. while none of the students were seriously hurt according to the national highway traffic safety administration there are 135 fatal bus crashes every year. only six states require all school buses to be equipped with seat bells but some regulators say buses are extremely safe and the cost of $2,000 to $5,000 to equip each bus with belts would mean millions of dollars for school districts. and it's important to
those 135 fatalities we mentioned most of them are occupants in other vehicles, not students on board school buses. but 17 states have considered legislation that would require buses to have seat belts just this year and just this week, utah rejected a measure requiring those seat belts all because of the cost. dan and paula. >> yeah, state legislation but so many wondering why there isn't enough federal mandate for this. adrienne, thank you for this reporting. this is a question that so many people have and a topic that's not going away any time soon. even one death is one death too much. >> you have looked into it extensi extensively. a lot of other news and over to dr. ron claiborne. >> i knew that was coming. >> yeah, it was one of those mornings. >> good morning to you, dan and paula. diane and robert. good morning, everyone. we begin in south carolina where lawyers for dylann roof want a new trial for him and are asking a judge to throw out the death penalty that was imposed on roof. the lawyers filing a motion in fede
federal trial and whether roof's crimes are punishable by death. roof was convicted and sentenced last month for killing nine african-american churchgoers in 2015. in washington, d.c., a rough start for the new education secretary betsy devos. protesters physically blocking her as she tried to enter a d.c. public school on friday. she did eventually make it in. devos was confirmed this past week by the u.s. senate but only because vice president mike pence cast tiebreaking vote. the first time that has happened. a chicago police officer who fatally shot a baseball bat wielding 19-year-old african-american man and his neighbor in 2015, he will not face criminal charges, prosecutors saying there was insufficient evidence to show that officer robert yalmo was not acting in self-defense when he shot quinn tan joe legree. legree allegedly charged on a staircase swinging a bat and bettany jones also killed in the
mike i wilitch owner of the detroit tiger has died. the businessman who most called mr.

very nice of him. >> good guy. >> good luck with his baseball career. >> i think every mom wants their daughter to marry him. >> only one can. >> only one can. >> at a time. >> at a time, right. >> before we talk about the legal ease of that topic let's -- >> wise move. wise move. >> mineral, washington, an area that's no stranger to mudslides, had one last night or yesterday and highway 7 was shut down. a lot of rain out west, california getting its share of it as well. mariposa county seeing a lot of flooding in that region and also a mudslide along i-80 between sacramento and truckee shutting down this roadway so there you go and we're looking for the rains to start to dry out. a look at that. thankfully drier air moving in but mountain snow moving in as this system begins to push inland and we're looking for drier weather which is going to be good. for the northeast a little pulse of snow, 1 to 3, 4 inches in spots and this is going to

thanks for getting up early. >> good morning. >> first and foremost durant returning to oklahoma city for the first time. do you expect there to be emotions on both sides? >> well, without question. they're going to boo him. you're going to have some people that cheer him because he's such a great player and was so charitable to the community here no doubt but at the same time because that have greatness it just hurts that much that he leaves, particularly when you consider the fact that he had just got this team to within one game of an nba finals berth and departed for the team that actually beat them. >> he's got to win a title with golden state otherwise it's all for naught. the other major story, charles oakley who spent ten seasons with the new york knicks was arrested, handcuffed and escorted out of msg this weekend. it was a stunning scene. the team owner saying he has been banned from returning to madison square garden until he gets help. oakley tweeting he'll hold a press conference next week. how messy is this situation? >> well, it's always
because we're talking about the knicks here who are disfunctional as they come. but in the end what it comes down to is "a," charles oakley should not have handled himself the way he did in terms of the physicality that he was exerting but, "b," you would like to think that the new york knicks as an organization considering the fact that is a guy attached to the glory days would be treated with more respect than they have shown him so it's incredibly unfortunate that it's regressed to this point but it's hardly surprising when you are talking about the new york knicks and in particular james dolan. >> yeah, they're not doing so great this year. but you spoke quickly with oakley this week. what are his sentiments? >> well, he's disgusted with it. he doesn't understand why the new york knicks have are taking these measures. i believes he supports the franchise. he's always supported them and has spoken out because of their inept play and think they're holding something against hi

disappointment there. >> i mean, i ordered daisies and look what showed up here. it's a mess. so, why is that? why is it thaw order something and you don't get what you -- >> many times you think you're dealing with a local florist but it's an order gatherer. they take orders over the phone and collect a fee and then they farm out the job but the local shop that gets it might not have that type of flower or that color of flower or the fees were so great that they didn't have enough money to make a nice bouquet so substituted. >> how do you make sure you're dealing with a local shop and not an order gatherer? >> it's really tricky because these order gatherers use many different names. if you do an online search for a city and florist you can find a company that's based in another city or even based in another country. so it can be tricky. >> what's your advice. >> well, you have to do your research and find a real bricks and mortar local florist and check the review, make sure they're reputable and call them directly and eliminate the
middleman. ask what's in stock and give them your price range, they can make a nice arrangement and you'll get more flowers because you won't be spending 10 to $25 on fees. >> might be a little extra work but less money and worth your time. stephanie, thank you very much. really appreciate it. we'll be right back with "pop news." keep it here.
