the super bowl ad already winning praise and criticism. the message that has some calling to boycott the king of beers. good evening. thanks for joining us on this sunday. i'm tom llamas. and we begin tonight with president trump just a short time ago attacking the legal system for refusing to immediately restore his travel ban. a federal appeals court denying that request. president trump at mar-a-lago, attacking the judge, saying he's putting the country in peril. and mr. trump telling homeland security to check people very carefully at the airports. the president also raising eyebrows with his comments about the actions of russian president vladimir putin, suggesting u.s. leaders aren't so innocent. top republicans breaking with the president on the issue. and david wright starts us off. >> reporter: tonight, a legal showdown with tearful repercussions.
>> i didn't know how long it would take me to see my mother. >> reporter: families, torn apart by trump's abrupt targeted travel ban, racing to reunite. not sure how long the door will remain open. today, trump warned, "i have instructed homeland security to check people coming into our country very carefully. the courts are making the job very difficult." the fate of trump's controversial policy, shutting the doors to visa holders from seven predominantly muslim countries, is now in the hands of the ninth circuit court of appeals. overnight, the appeals court rejected the administration's plea for an emergency ruling that would have reinstated the executive order. but a three-judge panel is set to review the issue tomorrow. the department of justice argues the federal judge in washington who lifted the ban improperly second-guessed the president's national security determinations, overstepping his judicial authority. democrats are pushing back on that.
>> the president is not a dictator. the framers of our constitution wanted a strong congress for the very reason that most of these kinds of things should be done within the scope of lawmaking. >> reporter: but trump appears to see it differently. tweeting today, "just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. if something happens, blame him and court system. people pouring in. bad!" even some republicans are expressing discomfort about the tone the president has set, especially with that tweet disparaging "this so-called judge." >> i'll be honest, i don't understand language like that. we don't have so-called judges, we don't have so-called senators, we don't have so-called presidents. >> reporter: there's also mounting criticism of this exchange from trump's interview with fox news' bill o'reilly. >> do you respect putin? >> i do respect him. >> do you? why? >> well, i respect a lot of people. that doesn't mean i'm going to get along with him. >> putin is a killer.
>> there are a lot of killers. we've got a lot of killers. what, you think our country is so innocent? >> reporter: senator marco rubio blasted back. "when has a democratic political activist been poisoned by the gop, or vice versa? we are not the same as putin." vice president mike pence insists there's no moral equivalency. but he told george stephanopoulos there's good reason to improve relations with moscow. >> russia has a common interest in confronting radical islamic terrorism and especially isis, and if we have opportunities to work together, i think the president is looking for an opportunity to begin that relationship anew. >> reporter: tonight, the president is hoping for a few hours' break from it all. he told o'reilly he'll be rooting for tom brady. >> so i'll say the patriots will win. >> by how many points? >> by eight points. >> reporter: trump says he likes both teams, but brady is his friend, and he said, you got to stick up for your friends. >> david, this fight over the
travel ban could affect the president in other ways. namely, his pick for the supreme court? >> reporter: that's right. democrats have already signaled they'll have some tough questions for judge neil gorsuch. they want to know, does he believe in checks and balances? does he believe in an independent judiciary? and in the context of this legal fight, that could put him at odds with the president. >> let's bring in kate shaw. what happens next, and is this case headed to the supreme court? >> well, right now this case is in front of the court of appeals. since friday night, the ban has been on hold. the trump administration is asking to let the ban go back into effect. if they lose the court of appeals, that could happen very quickly. the court of appeals could rule as quickly as monday night or tuesday. if the trump administration tries to get the supreme court to intervene, it would take five votes to prevail.
you could see, the fact that there's an eight-member court could really work against the trump administration. >> kate, thanks so much. the legal battle over the president's travel ban triggering a race against time for thousands of visa holders. many rushing to board planes flying to the u.s. worried that the executive order that kept them out could be possibly restored. here's eva pilgrim, with a family caught in the ban for eight days. their father, working alongside the u.s. military in iraq, as they struggled to make it to america. >> reporter: tonight, these first steps on american soil for the family of five who almost didn't make it. we met fuad sheref suleman, his wife and three kids eight days ago in the airport in cairo. exhausted and frustrated, just after they had been pulled off their flight to new york. >> this is my wife and this is my little daughter. i was denied the boarding flight to jfk. >> reporter: suleman worked with the u.s. government in iraq as a
translator, putting his life on the line. it took two years to get approved for special visas for him and his family. their original flight ended up being scheduled for just hours after the travel ban went into effect. >> i sold my house. i quit my job. my wife quit her job. and kids left school. all these, and i paid $5,000 for the ticket. all went down the drain. >> reporter: they had no choice but to go back to iraq and move in with relatives, where we spoke to them on the phone. >> kids left school. i don't know what to do. but still i am very optimistic, very optimistic. i will come to the united states. >> reporter: then a couple of days later, the good news. they could travel after all. there were tearful good-byes at suleman's father's house. and then, saturday, they boarded the plane again on their way to their new life. >> we have been cleared to travel to the united states after getting so much support and help.
>> reporter: tonight, suleman says that long journey is now a part of his story. >> never surrender. fight for your rights. so i fought for my rights and i succeeded. >> reporter: eva pilgrim, abc news, new york. >> eva, thank you. and next tonight, a major break in a murder case making national headlines. police announcing an arrest for the death of the female jogger killed near her home in new york city. saying dna evidence and a 911 call made two months before her death led them to the suspect. here's adrienne bankert. >> reporter: tonight, the face of a suspected killer. >> why would you do this? >> reporter: 20-year-old chanel lewis, greeted by angry neighbors screaming, "murderer." karina vetrano was jogging on a trail when she was raped and strangled in queens, new york, last august. vetrano's mother, relieved an arrest has been made. >> the demon must get his justice.
>> reporter: detectives followed hundreds of leads in an exhaustive search. just last week, they approached lewis for a dna test that they claimed tied him to the crime scene. >> karina helped us identify this person. she had the dna under her nails. she had touch dna on her back and there was more dna on the cell phone. >> reporter: since being taken into custody, police say lewis has given them more details. >> lewis was interviewed by detectives, and made detailed incriminating statements and admissions. charges are now pending. >> reporter: in a chilling twist, police say that last may, months before the killing, a 911 call was made complaining lewis was behaving suspiciously in the same park where the murder took place. her father taking comfort that a suspect is now in custody. >> i'm not going to say it's a good day, but we can move forward now. >> reporter: vetrano was jogging just blocks away from her home near here when she was killed. lewis, now facing murder charges. his father saying he's extremely
surprised, and that his son has always been more likely to be a victim than a perpetrator. tom? >> adrienne, thank you. overseas, new developments in the terror attack near the louvre in paris. police say the suspect is refusing to speak with investigators. he was shot in the stomach, lunging at soldiers with two machetes. his father is accusing soldiers of using brute force. insisting his son is not a terrorist. back at home, to the west, the deadly fall into an icy ravine in southern california. one hiker killed, four others hurt. sliding 300 feet down the side of a frozen mountain. here's marci gonzalez. >> reporter: a treacherous rescue -- >> the victim's right here. >> reporter: in the mountains near los angeles. >> use caution. ice in the area. >> reporter: four men and a woman, hiking at a 7,000-foot elevation saturday, suddenly sliding 300 feet down the ice. of this steep slope.
