tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN July 3, 2019 1:00am-2:00am PDT
extreme overcrowding, prolonged detention, immediate attention required, damning findings by an internal watchdog as the border crisis spirals out of control. the president taking direct aim at the supreme court over a ruling on the census. he's vowing to keep fighting even though the census is already being printed. and one win away. the u.s. women's national team heading to the world cup final. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world.
this is "early start." it certainly is early, isn't it? i'm michelle kosinski. >> i'm dave briggs. the u.s. did it without their best player. >> gives everyone hope. >> terrific effort by the ust. wednesday, july 3rd, 4:00 a.m. in new york, 10:00 a.m. in france. we begin with the crisis on our southern border. a new and dire warning about conditions for migrants detained at the southern u.s. border. extreme overcrowding, prolonged detention, without proper food, hygiene, or laundry facilities, just part of what's laid out in a report by the department of homeland security's internal watchdog. the i.g. says these and other problems require immediate attention and action. the warnings prompted by unannounced visits from inspectors in early june. over the last few months, the growing influx of migrant families and children has led to longer times in custody and overcrowding at facilities intended to be temporary. >> the situation at the border grows more urgent by the day.
the border patrol now leading the search for a 2-year-old missing in the rio grande. monday the woman told agents she had lost her daughter crossing the river. this comes a week after the harrowing image of a man and his daughter who drowned trying to cross the rio grande. nick valencia has more on conditions at the border from el paso, texas. >> reporter: this new report by the office of the inspector general is based off of five visits to the southern border, principally in mcallen, texas. what's clear is how overcrowded the facilities are. in some cases, migrants don't have enough room to lay down comfortably on the concrete. according to inspectors in this report, the conditions in these facilities are so dangerous they pose a health and safetyif risk not just to the agents but the migrants in custody. half of the 8,000 detainees in custody in mcallen were held longer than the 72 hours which is required under law.
one-third of the children were also held longer than the law allows. dhs officials say they're doing the best they can with the resources they have. but to democratic lawmakers, some who visited the southern border this week, it's simply not enough. dave, michelle? >> thanks. florida congressman frederica wilson claims when democrats toured a migrant detention center in south florida tuesday they were only permitted to see a single classroom and an empty dorm along with supplies like soap and toothpaste. that's where the access ended. >> i asked to see the girls. there are 700 girls in this facility. i saw 30. when i tried to go into the dormitory that houses the girls, they said to me they were anyone take -- they were in intake and it might be dangerous. >> madeleine dean of pennsylvania became emotional when describing a meeting with detained migrant children.
she said members of the group shout that they were members of congress who were there to help. >> you know what they did? they passed a note under the floor -- under the door. and we got in trouble. the guard worried we were sending something. the children sent us a note out. and the note said, how can we help you? the children wanted to help us. that's inhumanity. >> new fallout from the facebook group of current and former customs and border patrol agents who joked about the plight of migrants. at exclusive interview with cnn, one agent claims he heard a supervisor making fun of dead immigrants. >> he was making fun of them. >> saying what? >> that it's just another life. he made a comment also regarding running over illegals. i'm like, you cannot run over
people. >> the u.s. border patrol chief says the words of those few individuals on facebook directly undermines the public trust. president trump taking a direct shot at the supreme court days after it ruled the 2020 census cannot contain a citizenship question. the president tweeting, "it's a very sad time for america when the supreme court of the united states won't allow a question of is this person a citizen of the united states." he also vowed to keep fighting to add the question even though just hours earlier the administration announced a census question would not be on the 2020 census. it was wilbur ross who originally ordered the bureau to add the question. yesterday he said the bury would print the form without it despite his disagreement with the high court ruling. it's billed as a salute to america.
but there are growing questions whether the president is planning a salute to trump. yesterday he claimed in a tweet that the pentagon and our great
military leaders are thrilled to be participating in a military parade. also sources tell us the president's political ally received some of the 500 vip seats. those tickets will grant entry to the areas closest to the lincoln memorial where the president will speak. remember the event is being held on the national mall, not a private space like the white house. that's not sitting well with former defense secretary leon panetta. >> if the president does -- the president does a great deal of harm by politicizing this event, i think the military, frankly, we have always taken the position, those of us that have been involved with the military, that we don't have to display our power to anybody. we're the strongest military power on the face of the earth. we don't have to roll tanks down the street. we don't have to roll troops down the street because we know that we are strong, and we can take on any enemy.
>> 900 members of the d.c. national guard have been called up to help with traffic control and security. that's nearly triple the typical guard activation for the event. overnight the pentagon began delivering a pair of m-1 abrams tanks to the national mall for a small stationary display of american military might. cnn's barbara starr with more from the pentagon. >> reporter: it will be a very different event for the u.s. military which generally has not participated in national july 4th events. expect to see the chairman of the joint chiefs general joseph dunford. he has been invited by the president to attend. other senior officers on expected to attend, as well. but the big issue, of course, is the u.s. military wants to stay out of partisan politics. and if president trump's remarks veer into those partisan politics, expect to see those senior officers stay very quiet and not react. they do not want to be part of a
political event. so when people arrive on the national mall july 4th, what will they see in president trump's salute to america? there will be a flyover, some of the latest military aircraft, air force f-22s and f-35s. the plane that is used as air force one. the new marine one helicopter, the b-2 stealth bomber. there's also going to be a very small number of armored vehicles on the ground. dave, michelle? >> barbara, thank you. the president's big fourth of july bash will have a party crasher, though. the infamous 20-foot-tall balloon depicting the president as a baby in diapers. the national parks service issued a permit to the group, cold pink for the baby trump balloon to be displayed on the mall. regulations will prevent
the balloon from taking flight during the event. the group expressing its frustration says the permit is not in the location it requested
which is within the line of sight of the president's podium at the lincoln memorial. no one seems to know where mike pence abruptly canceled an appearance tuesday moments before air force 2 was about to take off. the vice president was scheduled to speak about the opioid crisis at an addiction recovery center in manchester. an advanced staff member told the audience there was an emergency, and pence would not be coming. the vice president's office is only saying there was no cause for alarm. one person familiar with the cancelation described it as a site issue. another said there was a problem clearing one or more of the people involved. the u.s. women's national team is headed back to the world cup. this time for the final. the defending champs beating england 2-1 in a hard-fought semifinal. cnn's amanda davis is live in france with more. and what a match that was. sorry about your team, though,a mannedned thoug-- amanda.
so sorry. >> reporter: sometimes in life you've got to put your hands up and say you were beaten by the better team, and that's exactly what i've got to do this morning. the usa deservedly celebrating a place as you said in a record fifth women's world cup final at the expense of my team, england. it was a game that had a bit of everything. there was shock and intrigue when megan rapinoe was left out of the starting lineup only for it to be revealed later she's suffering from a small hamstring injury. but no rapinoe, no problem. there was stunning quality across the board. the early goal. crystal dunn was a rock in defense. rose navelle was immense in midfield. then there was alex morgan on her birthday creating headlines not only with her goal, her sixth of the tournament, but also her celebration. she hasn't given anything away about what she meant by sipping her tea. she left us guessing.
was it a dig at a very english tradition? was it a reference to the boston tea party and july 4th week? regardless, it was a 30th birthday to remember for her. >> would you say it's the best birthday forever? >> i would say so. i mean, how can you beat this? yeah. >> reporter: what a night, as well, for goalkeeper alissa naeher, answering those who questioned her credentials in sensational form. she proved the match winner, she saved the penalty from england's captain later in the second half. it was as stunning as you would want a world cup semifinal to be. the usa know they'll be back here in the big one on sunday. later on wednesday we'll be finding out if it will be the netherlands or sweden who will be joining them. >> well hopefully rapinoe will be okay for the next one. even if it's just so that she can -- she can be there and play
for, of course, what will be the final win for the usa. sorry, amanda. so sorry, so sorry. did i -- didn't many do that. just a reaction. >> nice salute. >> reporter: i'm used to it as an england fan. >> thank you. should be a great world cup final. >> we'll have a cup of tea in your honor today. ahead, not guilty on the top charges. a navy s.e.a.l. acquitted of killing an isis prisoner in iraq could be a free man today. logy releases fragrance upwards and outwards unlike febreze. so now you can fill every corner with fragrance. upgrade to air wick.

the los angeles angels making an emotional return to the diamond after the death of their teammate tyler skaggs. >> we send our deepest sympathies and condolences to his wife and his family, as well as to his angels teammates and the entire los angeles angels family. tyler passed away yesterday at the age of 27. >> players and fans observing a moment of silence before last night's game in texas. the angels' manager describing how the team is coping with such a devastating loss. >> we were able to talk about tyler and laugh about some of the stories and some of the goofy things he did, listened to
some of his music. so it was good. >> angels players wore skaggs' number 45 on black patches on their uniforms last night to remember their fallen teammate. they won the game defeating the rangers 9-4. decorated navy s.e.a.l. eddie gallagher found not guilty of premeditated murder and all the major charges against him for the death of an isis prisoner in iraq. fellow s.e.a.l.s offering conflicting accounts of gallagher's behavior at his military trial. two witnesses say they saw him fatally stab the victim. one altered his story for the first time on the stand. >> i was feeling like we're finally vindicated after being terrorized by the government that my husband fought for for two decades in the war on terror. he's fought every major enemy of the united states. he is a righteous and noble individual. we need afford the benefit of
the doubt to our war heroes who we send over there to fight these evils. >> the jury did find gallagher guilty of posing for a photo with a dead prisoner. that carries a maximum four-month sentence. he could get time served when he's back in court later today. quality, hard work, commitment, the stuff america was made of. without them there is no future. >> lee iacocca, legend in the auto industry, has died. for decades he was one of america's best-known business executives. the former chrysler ceo and ford president was also a master pitchman, appearing in a series of tv commercials telling consumers if you can find a better car, buy it. he's also credited with saving the number-three automaker, chrysler, from bankruptcy in the 1980s. before that at ford, iacocca developed the mustang. once asked about the secret to his success, he said "i hire people brighter than me, and then i get out of the way."
iacocca is survived by two daughters and eight grandchildren. he was 94. >> just represents the '80s in a lot of ways. >> absolutely. he's an icon. >> a shame the video looksly sold. makes me -- looks so old. makes me feel old. mourners lined up to honor september 11th hero luis alvarez. he succumbed to a 9/11-related cancer. in his dying days he spoke to congress in an effort to get first responders a permanent victims compensation funds. >> their families would love to have time with them and mine had time with me. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has indicated that congress will address extending the 9/11 victims fund. but when that will happen is unclear. alvarez will be honored with a key to new york city following an emotional appeal by fellow

check on cnn business now. after two failed attempts, president trump has put up two new selections for the central bank. christopher waller and judy shelton. trump announced his plans in a tweet tuesday, but it's unclear when he'll make the nominations official. waller serves as executive vice president at the federal reserve bank of st. louis. shelton is a longtime fed critic who has publicly supported trump's views on currency. in a paper last year she wrote, quote, we make america great again by making america's money great again. trump's previous nominees steven moore and herman cane withdrew after criticism. there's also a nomination for europe's top stop, christine lagarde has been tapped as the next president of the european central bank. an appointment that would make her the first woman to lead the
institution. last year "forbes" ranked her third on its list of the world's most powerful women behind only angela merkel and teresa may. putting his foot down without a nike swoosh on it, mitch mcconnell slams nike after the withdrawal of the shoe because of the american flag. the company had concerns it could unintentionally offends and detract from the fourth of july holiday. according to the "wall street journal," nike received a complaint from former nfl star colin kaepernick because the betsy ross flag represents a time when african-americans were enslaved. senator mcconnell doesn't see it that way. >> i hope nike releases these shoes or some other shoemaker picks up the flag, puts it on a pair of shoes, and starts selling it. i'll make the first order.
>> republican governor doug doocy of arizona retaliating against nike ordering the state to revoke a financial incentive package for the company to build a plant outside phoenix. in a twist, georgia lore, the mayor of goodyear where the plant is to be built, says she will honor the deal with nike. new fallout from the ground in the boeing 737 max fleet. american airlines becoming the first to cancel a route, eliminating its direct flights between dallas and oakland. american, united, and southwest have each canceled hundreds of daily flights due to the worldwide grounding of the 737 max in march following the two fatal crashes. american says the dallas-oakland route will be dropped beginning friday and through at least september 3rd. well, i wonder if that's just the beginning of that. >> well, hopefully this plane is back in the air late this summer. we hope. it looks like. the visuals matched the report. the homeland security watchdog

weslico, texas. what's clear is how overcrowded the facilities are. in some cases, migrants don't have enough room to lay down comfortably on the concrete. according to inspectors, the conditions in these facilities are so dangerous they pose a health and safety risk not just to the agents but also to the migrants in custody. here's some other things that stand out from the report -- half of the 8,000 detainees in custody in mcallen were held longer than the 72 hours which is required under law. one-third of the children were also held longer than the law allows. we heard from officials who said they're doing the best they can with the resources they have. but to democratic lawmakers, some who visited the southern border this week, it's simply not enough. dave, michelle? >> nick, thank you. florida congresswoman frederica wilson claims when democrats toured a migrant detention center in south florida tuesday they were only permitted to see a single classroom and an empty dorm. along with some supplies like soap and toothpaste. that is where the access ended.

just hours earlier the administration announced the citizenship question would not be on the 2020 census. it was wilbur ross who wanted to include the question. he said the form would be printed without it despite i disagreement with -- a disagreement with the high court ruling. stocks could be doing better if it weren't for trump's trade wars. according to the bank of america merrill lynch, if you took out all the days where trade affected the market, the s&p would be at 3,100 points, a gain of more than 4.5% that investors are losing out on. still, the trade optimism is driving the s&p higher. the average closed at 2,973 points tuesday, its highest level ever. despite record highs, there are still underlying worries about the global economy. the temporary truce between trump and president xi didn't cancel tariffs that were already affecting the economy. there's also the threat of new
tariffs on $4 billion worth of goods imported from the european union. nevertheless trump tweeted tuesday that the economy was, quote, the best it has ever been. a short week for investors. the stock market closes early today and is closed tomorrow for independence day. now to the 2020 presidential race. former vice president joe biden and senator kamala harris are campaigning head to head in iowa today. as new poll numbers show harris and senator elizabeth warren sol i fewing their status as top -- solidifying their status at top candidates. there is room for error. polls show 60% of likely iowa caucusgoers may change their mind before the vote. >> asked for their second choice, iowa democrats picked harris followed by warren and mayor pete buttigieg. on the issues the poll suggests we'll highlight -- we'll likely hear about health care, climate change, and immigration. many will be stumping in iowa. jeff zeleny with more from
washington. >> reporter: former vice president joe biden heading back to iowa today, but no longer as the commanding front-runner in the race. the last time he visited last month. he will be joined on the campaign trail by senator kamala harris who's been gaining ground after her debate last week in national polls, as well as in a new iowa poll. she's about neck and neck with elizabeth warren but has overtaken bernie sanders. now most of these democratic candidates will be on the ground in iowa over the next several days campaigning for the early caucus-goers. seven months from today is the date of the iowa caucuses, next february. a lot can happen, no question. we are seeing the top tier of the race solidify. and all of those top-tier candidates will be in iowa campaigning. pete buttigieg, as well, making his case to voters. even though joe biden and kamala harris will not cross paths directly, they'll be at different parades, meeting with different voters. there is no question at all. both campaigns will be eyeing one another as they're making their way here. they'll be campaigning
throughout the weekend. joe biden also going to south carolina over the weekend. also joined by senator harris. you're getting a sense of what this dynamic is going into what is a critical month of july. leading into the next four weeks before the next debate here on cnn in detroit. dave and michelle? >> all right. thanks. a cnn exclusive you don't want to miss. former vice president joe biden sits down with chris cuomo. see it starting friday morning at 6:00 a.m. only on cnn. all right. to sports, the u.s. women's national team headed back to the world cup final for the third straight time. the defending champs beating england 2-1 in a hard-fought smi final. amanda davis live in france with more. good morning. really england had their chances, though. they had the goal called back because of offsides. then they had a penalty kick, two huge moments in a great match. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dave.
yeah, it was an epic semifinal. but ultimately england's lionesses were topped by the u.s. queen who showed they were the top-ranked in the world, the reason others are calling a benchmark. even without megan rapinoe, ruled out with a minor hamstring industry. the u.s. side dominated. it was a very much case of no rapinoe, no problem. once again the usa were lightning quick out of the box. they scored for the sixth time in six games inside the first 12 minutes. this time it was veteran of over 100 who impressed who set the defending champions on their way, followed by birthday girl alex morgan as she keeps up her campaign for the golden boot award given to the top scorer. again, there's controversy over the celebrations after all that criticism, you may remember, for being overboard in the usa's
opening trashing of thailand. then carly lloyd's subtle golf clap against chile. this time morgan stopped for tea. was it a dig at an endlish thatdition or -- endingliglish tradition, we don't know. it was up to alissa naeher to book the usa in a record fifth world cup final. >> just meant a lot to me to have, you know, through this whole thing my teammates have had my back. i've had theirs, and it was just kind of a culmination of that. >> reporter: such a moment for naeher having faced criticism as to whether or not she's up to the job to stand between the sticks and the u.s. goal. it was as stunning as you'd have wanted a semifinal to be. the usa know they'll be back in
the big one sunday. rapinoe expects to be back, too, later on wednesday. we'll discover if it will be the netherlands or sweden joining them, dave. >> you're right, though. the bigger question is is rapinoe back for that final. can't imagine anyone will keep her off the pitch. thank you, great job reporting. >> thanks. i wanted to ask if she was offended by the tea drinking. >> everything is made of the team's arrogance. it's confidence. they're having a good time. >> it's sensitive. >> if you know alex morgan which i happen to have interviewed on occasion, she's not taunting. they're celebrating. they're a confident, fun team watch. who cares if they're arrogant? >> raw emotions there, but hey, great. >> it was a pleasure to watch. >> it was great. giving birth is painful enough. an epidural may help, imagine if a tube got lodged in your back, next. ningredientsen that fuel five indicators of brain performance:

more protests expected after police break up demonstrations by members of israel's ethiopian community and their supporters. the protests stem from the death a young man from ethiopian or inat the hands of a police officer. we have more. what is the scene like right now, orrin? >> reporter: there are more protests scheduled for today, not only in jerusalem or tel aviv but basically across the entire country. this starts on saturday night when police say an off-duty police officer came up to a park in a city in northern israel and saw two people arguing. at some point he felt his life was in danger and opened fire, shooting and killing a 19-year-old ethiopian. that then led to the protests you're seeing here. police have taken that officer into custody because there have been questions and speculation about whether the officer's life was in danger ads the investigation continues. you can see on the streets here the anger in the ethiopian
israeli community. they have for years felt like second-class citizens and that bubbled to the surface with the shooting and killing. more protests scheduled across the country. in the course of these protests, police say there were molotov cocktails thrown. cars burned. protesters tried to break into police headquarters in a number of locations. and that, of course, is where police drew the line. according to police, 111 oars were injured -- officers were injured and 136 protesters were taken into custody. dozens of them injured, as well. those numbers alone make this the biggest protest we've seen across the in the 4.5 years that i've been here. and that gives you a sense of the anger bubbling over in the community that we're seeing here. michelle and dave, there are more protests scheduled for this afternoon. we will certainly be there and even more protests scheduled throughout the weekend. this is not a problem going away quietly or quickly. >> thanks. okay, back here, seattle children's hospital has closed all 14 of its main operating rooms after a patient died from
