1:00 am
all right. where's my cocktail? hate can't keep protestors off the streets as thousands of people march against trump's immigration policy. plus, rescuers are picking up the pace in thailand as they zero in on where the missing football team might be trapped. and france and uroguay send the world's two biggest teams packing. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world, i'm anna coren, "cnn newsroom" starts right now. thousands of americans are calling for an end to the
1:01 am
government's zero tolerance immigration policy. well, that's because the trump administration's hard line approach has led to the separation of more than 2,000 migrant children from their parents after they illegally crossed the u.s. border. on saturday public rage against the practice reached a fever pitch. protesters held massive rallies in cities across the country. the biggest was in the capitol, washington, where children marched alongside their parents holding signs and chanting, families belong together. they're calling for families torn apart by the trump administration's hard line policy in the past few weeks to be reunited immediately. people from all walks of life raised their voices including celebrities and children of undocumented immigrants who face the fear of losing their parents to deportation every day. >> it makes me sad to know that children can't be with their parents. i don't understand why they are
1:02 am
being so mean to us children. don't they know how much we love our families? don't they have a family too? >> my 7-year-old son is here with me today, his name is egypt. and i couldn't even imagine not being able to find him. i couldn't even imagine being separated from him or scared about how he's being treated so this is all of our fight. >> i am here not only as a brand-new mother, as the child, the proud child of honduran immigrants, and not only as an american who sees it as her duty to be here defending justice, i am here as a human being with a
1:03 am
beating heart who can feel pain, who understands compassion and who can easily imagine what it must feel like to struggle the way families are struggling right now. >> some emotional words there. well, in downtown los angeles protesters gathered outside a u.s. immigration and customs enforcement building. that's the organization responsible for rounding up undocumented immigrants and catching people who cross the border illegally. a rising chorus is demanding that agency be abolished. well, meanwhile, several celebrities led their voices to the los angeles protest. singer, songwriter john legend sang a new song called "preach." ♪ everybody thought nothing real is happening because nothing is new ♪ ♪ and now when all is tragic, i
1:04 am
just feel sedated ♪ ♪ why do i feel numb? is that all i can do ♪ ♪ and heaven knows i'm not helpless ♪ ♪ for i'm only human >> and democratic senator camila harris spoke out against the detention centers that house migrant children. >> we are better than this. we are better than having these detention facilities that are prisons where we house mothers who have been ripped from their breast feeding children behind bashed wires. we are better than this. when we have children being housed in cages crying for their
1:05 am
mommies and daddies, we know we are better than this. >> and in chicago protestors encouraged each other to fight back against policies they think are injust. senator dick durbin told cnn's ryan young that the best way for americans to do this is to exercise their democratic rights. >> i'm asking people across the united states, voters, participate. be part of this election. don't stay home and curse the television. sorry, but come on out. use your citizen's right to vote. that's the most important thing. >> besides blaming the trump administration, demonstrators lay some of the blame for the separation of migrant families at the u.s. immigration and customs enforcement agency or i.c.e. as it's known. this was the scene in mccallum, texas, a town on the border where one of the agency processing centers sits. migrants there are being treated worse than animals.
1:06 am
>> well, for one, they're not animals because anybody who loves animals wouldn't even treat them the way the humans are being treated now. so for the president, make a difference. >> in boston, massachusetts, senator elizabeth warren told the crowds there that the agency needed to be completely remade. >> the president's deeply immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing i.c.e. with something that reflects our morality. >> and in portland, oregon, at least five people were injured during confrontations with police. demonstrators and federal officers have been clashing there all week. so much so that the i.c.e. agent
1:07 am
is had to shut down there. president trump is at his golf resort in new jersey. protesters were there, too, just a few miles from him. the white house is keeping quiet about the immigration rallies across the u.s. that might be because of other things on the president's agenda, one of those priorities being filling someone on the u.s. supreme court. boris sanchez has the latest. >> reporter: the white house not putting out an official on the record response saturday to our questions about the nationwide protests against the president's immigration policy. president trump himself did weigh in on immigration via twitter early on saturday morning bashing democrats writing that they wanted to abolish immigration and customs enforcement suggesting at one point that they are an open borders parties and drawing a line between the restructuring of i.c.e. that some democrats like new york senator kirs steen
1:08 am
gillibrand is calling for. no word from people near the president's property. some 3 or 400 protesters gathered at a library near the president's property. we do know the president has kept busy this weekend. he initially told reporters on friday he would spend the weekend interviewing one or two nominees for the court. the white house on saturday night put out a statement saying the president was continuing conversations with allies and with white house counsel don mcbegm mcgann over the possible replacement. we should note that president trump on friday told reporters that he had dwindled down an initial list from 25 names to just 5 though he would be
1:09 am
interviewing with 6 or 7 candidates. the boris sanchez, cnn, traveling with the president, bed minister, new jersey. let's bring in scott lucas who teaches international politics in england. he's the founder and editor of e.a. world news. let's start with the incredible and emotional scenes across the united states, tens of thousands of people taking to the streets to protest donald trump's zero tolerance immigration policy, especially separating those more than 2,000 children from their parents. there's been silence from the president, which isn't surprising, but is it likely to have any impact on the administration? >> oh, yes. first you have the rallies. this isn't tens of thousands, this is hundreds of thousands so this is not just a one off. you will see this as a continuing expression of
1:10 am
concern, not only over the immigration policy, the detention of children, the separation from parents but even wider than that, that is the attitude of the president, his administration towards people of other races which we have seen vividly in the past year. their attitude towards people of other religions, such as musl s muslims. their attitudes against other people, like women. donald trump wasn't silent. he was extremely rattled by this. it was on twitter where he put out a series of let's be clear here, false tweets, saying things like, for example, all his critics want open borders. untrue. saying that his administration's zero policy, forget about the children, they have liberated towns from the ms-13 gang. untrue. saying that he had no opinion on the votes on immigration in congress this past week. untrue. in other words, the trump strategy is clear, that if the white house gives you no official comment because it wants all those people to go away, trump is going to try to
1:11 am
shift this to the idea of as he has said in the past, that undocumented immigrants are animals, that we need no legal process for them and that therefore those people who have ral ried yesterday, will rally tomorrow and next month, they're illegitimate. they have no cause to rally against him. >> that tweet that he made, he really deflected from the real issue which is, of course, his hard line immigration policy and was saying that he obviously defended the performance of i.c.e. and attacked democrats as pushing a radical left agenda to a polish i.c.e. i mean, it's not surprising that he deflects this is what he'd do, this is what he does, but really is it going to appeal to his base? yes. but to everybody else, it's just more noise from the president. >> there's three elements here. let's keep this in mind because
1:12 am
it is a day-to-day contest and we, in fact -- it's been going on since trump became president. one is you appeal to that supposed base. if you said 30, 35% of americans, you support the president, his administration no matter what they do, two, it's to keep others confused. in other words, you put out a lie in the morning and they've done this over many issues, including the economy this past week. you put out the lie in the morning and while the rest of us are trying to say, no, this is actually what happened, later ott in the day they'll say, maybe we misspoke, trump will speak about something else. thirdly, they'll try to divert your attention away from the starting point issue and let us remember, the starting point issue is that this administration dlib ber ritly, deliberately took children from parents. they deliberately took them from hurri hurriedly made cages.
1:13 am
they're likely to be there for months because the priority of donald trump is not to reunite famili families, it is not to apologize. it will be blame the media, blame the democrats, support me your president. whether it works is not just a question of an election in november, it is a question of what happens week on week on immigration and the other issues and the united states. >> well, let's talk about the reunification of those families because obviously the president, he underestimated the rage. he then buckled to that pressure last month and signed an executive order to now keep those families together in detention centers albeit indefinitely, but reuniting those children, it seems like a logistical nightmare and something the white house did not plan for. >> anna, first of all, let me be clear here. donald trump didn't buckle when he signed that document which, you know, suppose 1dly is an order. there's been a reduction of
1:14 am
children held in the past week is 6. in other words, there have been very few efforts that have been successful if pursued to reunite people. in part, that's because of the chaos. in part it's because some parents have been deported while children were left behind but i repeat in part let us be clear, it is because donald trump and his attorney general jeff sessions and his white house advisor steven miller don't want the families reunited. that's not their priority was because the idea was you break up the families and it is a deterrent to others who try to cross the border, even if they want to claim asylum. perhaps they will try to apply to the courts and bring them together to the detention centers, so, in other words, they're not buckling. they're actually doubling down. >> absolutely horrifying what is going on. scott lucas, thank you very much for putting that all into perspective for us.
1:15 am
well, coming up, looking for life in the darkness. why thai rescuers think a missing youth football team could still be alive. that's still ahead. plus, mexico goes to the polls amid the deadliest year on records. why politicians and journalists are in the cross hairs.

welcome back to "cnn newsroom." here in hong kong the city is marking the 21st anniversary of its return to china from brittain. hong kong's chief executive, carrie lamb, attended a flag raising ceremony. lamb pledged to be accountable to beijing and hong kong. under her leadership the one city, two country act. beijing has been encroaching on
1:20 am
the return. more than a week on thailand is not giving up the search for a football team. divers are closing in on a spot where the team may have taken shelter. it's believed the 12 boys and their coach were trapped in a flooded cave system last weekend. this has sparked an international rescue effort. some of the waters now have receded and rescuers are pushing on. we're covering the story from india. we're joined from new delhi. we heard from the governor earlier today and he said that there's a multi-pronged attack for rescuing this team. tell us more. >> reporter: so there is, anna. looking at a number of ways of trying to get into this cave network. it's quite vast. ten kilometers in northern thailand to find the boys aged 11 to 16 and the coach who is 25. they've looked at the possibility of entering by the mouth of the cave and exiting from there.
1:21 am
the problem there is that the flood waters have accumulated over the last few days, a lot of rain has receded, but the cave themselves, there's a lot of leftover water and mud and that's complicated that. they're entering a different way, surveying chimneys that they hope might allow them to get inside the network. that hasn't proved very successful so far. they're looking at drilling draining channels and drain the water out and make it easier for the rescue teams to operate that way. they've looked at the possibility of drilling directly into the wall of the cave to get inside. that's very complicated. this is very, very thick, heavy rock. a number of options being looked at. yesterday a team of divers making progress and due to the slight letup in the rain to the elevated area where they hope the kids and their coach might be. anna? >> nikol, the dangers and the risks to those divers who were trying to navigate this labyrinth of the cave system,
1:22 am
tell us a bit more about that. >> reporter: many risks, anna, absolutely. so the fact that there is all this flood water is mixed up with mud, quite muddy, quite dark in there. there are concerns about oxygen. the diving teams that you referred to earlier that are making that progress to this elevated area, they are working their way there with oxygen tanks installed at 25 meter intervals. this is to protect them. extra oxygen tanks are brought in. the rescue team, the whole effort, has gradually over a week -- the team went missing last saturday. the team is becoming larger and larger. now we have a thousand rescue people there. thailand, u.s., china and australia. everyone involved in trying to locate these 12 boys, their coach, find them and hopefully evacuate them. yesterday they conducted evacuation drills to be ready in the event that they do find
1:23 am
them, how to get them out. so they're pressing on to try and find them and to hopefully get them out. anna? >> we know this has obviously captured the nation's attention. their hearts and their prayers. but we also saw some images today from the divers and on the oxygen tanks messages like, please find them soon and bring the team home, that being the football team. incredible, incredible images and just remarkable that they are still continuing eight days on, nikol kuma, thank you for the update. meanwhile, in mexico yet another journalist has been killed as the country prepares to head to the polls. jose gud da loop pay chan has been killed. his death came two days before the voters elect a new president and some 3400 state and local officials.

1:25 am
more than 20,506 have been killed. others have gone missing. it's a gruesome trend sending some to take their chances at the border. >> translator: it's more dangerous where i live. it's more dangerous there than in comparison to what could happen here at the border. >> translator: well, in all truth, i am scared. i have come with my family to see what happens. in the end, we're going to give it a try. >> reporter: locals say widespread corruption has created a vacuum for cartels and organized crime to proliferate. >> translator: a lot of businesses are closing down because there's no security. the owners are scared they will be kidnapped or murdered over the payment of extorsions. >> translator: many companies have had losses this year. robberies with grocery store owners, with people in the food industry take place from three to four times a week depending on the company. >> reporter: sunday closes a brutal campaign season.
1:26 am
132 candidates or politicians have been murdered since last september ahead of an election where thousands of seats are at stake. mexico security crisis is a central issue with the most high profile voices calling for more accountability. >> the stakes are pretty high. this is a moment to overturn things, and i don't want to go into my 40s thinking that i am going to have systematic violence, systematic impunity in my government. there are four main candidates for president. former mexico mayor. another one from the national action party. there's jose antonio meade from the ruling party and an independent. the winner will serve a single six-year term.

1:31 am
trump administration's zero tolerance immigration policy. the policy led to the separation of thousands of undocumented children from their parents. mr. trump ordered a halt to the family separations last week. protesters say it's taking too long to reunite families. north and south korea have reopened a maritime communication channel for the first time in a decade. north korean leader kim jong-un and south korean president moon jae-in agreed to reopen the channel in the summit in april. they say the channel is used to prevent accidental crashes in the yellow sea, also known as the west sea. a free syrian army says there's no cease-fire in dara after peace negotiations failed. dara has been on the government bombardment since earlier this 3407 month causing tens of thousands to flee.
1:32 am
they're refusing to let in anymore refugees. back to our top story this hour, the immigration debate in the united states. a hard line stance on immigration has been a big rallying point for trump supporters since day one of his campaign. cnn's ed lavandera went to the u.s./mexican border to find out if supporters are still standing by. >> with that kind of introduction, there's no guess that this is the topic. he's a staunch trump republican and credits the president with taking a tough approach to border security. >> with president trump we have someone who is making a serious attempt to enforce rule of law and enforce order law and enforce our sovereign border with mexico and get ahold of the
1:33 am
situation. >> reporter: christina garfield has lived along the border all her life. she comes from a family of democrats, but she, like trump, sees a threat in the flow of illegal immigration. >> my biggest concern with the people that are coming over our borders is safety. safety is a huge deal down here. >> reporter: trump is far from popular here in texas where most of the zero tolerance policy attention has been focused. he only won 28% of the vote, but there is an undercurrent of conservative latino voters who kind of defy conventional wisdom. they're unphased by trump's rhetoric that undocumented immigrants are, using trump's words here, invading the country. >> he doesn't sugar coat anything. i think the people of the united states appreciate that also. i don't think it's a bad thing. >> reporter: when you hear people talk about the way he talks about this, it comes off as racist to them, what do you say to that? >> yeah, well that's their
1:34 am
problem. they say what they want to say. it's a free country. they can believe it. >> reporter: this is the president of the county's young republican chapter. he walks us through the produce distribution warehouse where he works as the manager. he says the president needs to compromise. >> when you hear families being separated, zero tolerance family. we're the party of the family of faith and freedom and you think about families being separated, it doesn't look very civil. >> reporter: hernandez is also exhausted by trump's divisiveness. >> there are some things that he says, you have to cringe and be like, ah, how am i going to defend that. >> reporter: you're tired of sticking up for him? >> i don't get anything for having to stick up for him. >> or mr. donald j. trump and -- >> reporter: there are plenty of trump supporters willing to fight that fight, even in south
1:35 am
texas where there aren't many around. ed lavandera, cnn, mccallum, texas. president trump's political base may not be as unshakeable as it sometimes appears. some farmers in iowa who supported him in 2016 now say his trade policies are causing them very serious financial harm. this could spell trouble for the president's party in november's mid-term elections. cnn's nick white has our report. >> reporter: dark clouds over an island soy bean field. >> i'm worried. >> reporter: what about eye owe juan farmers? >> it's anxious times. yeah, no doubt about it. >> reporter: because in april china slapped an extra 25% tariff on imports of american pork. >> the pigs you're probably talking 2 to $300 million impact already. >> reporter: that's just iowa. now china is threatening something similar, soy beans.
1:36 am
the two largest economies on earth locked in a trade war largely over intellectual property in the tech industry. >> we get punished, we as agriculture, so to speak. that was a good one. >> reporter: iowa gets hit hard. one of the top soy bean producers and the top pork producer. >> did you vote for president trump? >> yes, i did. >> reporter: you voted for president trump? >> yes, i did. >> reporter: i have to come to iowa -- but his tariff laidened policies might now hit his base hard. chinese motives are veiled but now they're blatantly targeting states like iowa. iowa congressman rod blank now among the most vulnerable republican incumbents in the mid terms. >> people get more vocal as it gets more painful, but we're going to try to be patriotic. >> reporter: is there a point when eye owe juan farmee w iowa
1:37 am
trump? >> yeah, there is a point. >> reporter: when is that? >> i wish i knew. we might be there. >> reporter: the details remain unclear. >> a lot of the stuff he's done is good. right now with the trade negotiations going on, ask me in six months because it's painful right now. >> reporter: right now he stands to lose over half a million this year alone. nick roy, cnn, iowa. a few hours ago canada officially fired the latest shot in the global conflict over american trade tariffs. the imposed tariffs totaling $12 billion. canada's foreign affairs minister says everything from maple syrup to orange juice and whisky. canada's duties are four times larger than new european duties. they are retaliation for president trump's tariffs on
1:38 am
exported canadian steel and aluminum. canada says the u.s. move is illegal and will harm canadian industries. >> and we will not back down. i cannot emphasize enough the regret with which we take these counter measures. we are acting very much in sorrow, not in anger, but the u.s. tariffs leave canada no choice. the world's largest naval war games are happening near the hawaiian islands. rimpac brings together dozens of ships and submarine, 200 aircraft and 25,000 troops from 25 nations. u.s. military relations say the games are about building relationships. china is noticeably absent and beijing was disinvited. china is holding its own competing naval drills. coming up, extreme heat hits
