>> reporter: tracy falco tried and failed to reach florida. >> over an hour wait just to try to rebook your flight. ok reporter: stories of the ditched, dented, and demoralized ht the midwest were a good primer for what to expect as the storm lumbered east into new york and new england, where flooding could become an issue. an interstate was shut down in kansas, and another stood still in indiana. in illinois, calls for help to a.a.a. were up 59% from a month ago. >> those flakes were as big as your hand. ( laughs ) >> reporter: 45 to 50mph winds 0ade interstate 80 in iowa next te impassable, while the force of those winds was vividly apparent on lake michigan. and remember, this is only t vember. things are still not back to normal here at o'hare. and wind and weather delays are hew being reported at airports at newark, boston, and new york city. but despite the problems, the t.s.a. set a record yesterday,
screening 2.7 million passengers in one day. jeff? >> glor: wow. all right. dean reynolds, thank you very much. mexican police said today they took steps to keep central american migrants from storming the u.s. border in tijuana as more than 1,000 did yesterday, according to customs and border patrol, in an effort to win asylum in the u.s. these are images from the confrontation as the migrants were pushed back. a.reya villarreal is in tijuana. tt reporter: in a matter of minutes, the trickling stream sside the banks of the tijuana hiver turned into an overflow of migrants rushing towards the border. on the u.s. side, tear gas and rubber bullets were fired by u.s. border patrol agents, after they say, a group threw projectiles at them. 69 migrants were arrested. estella from honduras says she was shocked to see the response rd the border. so it's a day later and the
crowds are gone from the border, but the border patrol agents, they are still here, about half amile down from me. also, this wire, this is all new. agents tell us migrants came with tools, wire, and carpet to ory to get through this barrier. today, president trump refused to waiver on his immigration tlicies. p here's the bottom line: erbody's coming into our country unless they come in nggally. le reporter: migrants here in tijuana say they are fleeing violence and poverty. today, mexican federal police stand ready to use force to keep migrants away, as nearly 6,000 of them sit and wait at a shelter. over the last month, nearly st000 have signed up to ntluntarily return home. karina guttierez, mother of three from honduras, arrived at the shelter two weeks ago. she says they can't return to her country. jeff, conditions inside this shelter are quickly r teriorating. right now people are frustrated. we've seen families sleeping in
tents, families sleeping on the ground penned up with barbed wire fencing. one local worker told us if the oederal government doesn't step in to help, things will quickly get out of control here. >> glor: okay, mireya, thank you very much. the president also pushed back pday on a "60 minutes" investigation that found his administration's policy of separating immigrant families at ng iborder began much earlier and impacted many more children than first reported. paula reid spoke with the president about this at the usite house. >> reporter: president trump responded to the "60 minutes" s"port by repeating his claim that president obama also separated families. >> reporter: the trump administration's zero tolerance policy was different. unlike under obama, where some
adults with children were not prosecuted, the trump administration prosecuted all adults who crossed the border illegally. they were separated from their children, who could not be held in adult jails. >> if you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you. and that child may be separated from you as required by law. >> reporter: "60 minutes" "6tained a document from the department of homeland security that said, "child separation pagan nine months earlier than the administration acknowledged." and while the white house says more than 2,600 children were detained under the policy, "60 minutes" reported at least 5,000 teildren have been separated from their parents since the beginning of mr. trump's administration. former homeland security official scott shuchart, who served in the trump and obama ofministrations, told "60 minutes" that experts inside the government were not consulted. >> if they had come to you, what would your office have said? >> we would have advice on the way that needed to be done, on the record keeping that needed to be done, and our advice on
that wasn't sought out, and when we tried to provide it, it was ignored. >> reporter: the department of homeland security issued a ftatement denying that it adopted a policy of separating families as a way to deter people from coming here illegally, but former attorney general jeff sessions had publicly said the policy was supposed to be a deterrent. cbs news also issued a statement today saying, "we stand by the facts in our story." jeff? >> glor: paula, thank you very much. the president hit the campaign trail today for the one last time in this election cycle ahead of tomorrow's senate run-off in mississippi. ed o'keefe is following this owgh-stakes race. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: president trump threw his weight behind republican senator cindy hyde- smith today in tupelo, hoping to add to the republican majority in the senate. >> cindy is so important, so respected, we got to send her back. >> reporter: but hyde-smith is under fire for racially-charged comments recently caught on camera. >> your comments offended a great number of people, cindy.
eo we already have-- >> reporter: no you haven't. video from earlier this month shows her alongside a supporter joking that if he ever invited her to attend a public hanging, sie'd sit in the front row. >> for anyone that was offended by my comments, i certainly apologize. >> reporter: a photo also surfaced from 2014, showing hyde-smith wearing a confederate army soldier's hat. race has always been factor in mississippi politics, but today another reminder of the state's sioubled past. two nooses were found on trees at the state capitol in jackson, hung by critics of senator hyde- smith. the democrat in the race, mike rpy, focused-- not on the nooses-- but on hyde-smith's words. >> they were harmful and hurtful, and they were-- they were hurtful to the millions of people in mississippi of goodwill. >> reporter: mississippi voters ery the controversy around hyde- smith's comments is on their mind. >> cindy hyde-smith, though, i find to be objectionable and a relic of the old bad south. >> reporter: this political
stuff is getting ridiculous. i know what she is saying. ohe did not mean it in a black or slave issue. i mean-- it's not fair. >> glor: that was ed o'keefe reporting on the ground in mississippi. from mississippi now to mars. this is the first picture today from nasa's insight lander. the specks you see are dust on the camera lens from mars. the spacecraftadin to the surface of mars. here's jamie yuccas. >> touchdown confirmed. ( applause ) >> reporter: nasa engineers felt pure joy after waiting through seven minutes of nail-biting terror. from new york's times square, to
the jet propulsion lab outside los angeles-- ( cheers and applause ) people around the country cheered the completion of the more than 300 million mile insight journey to mars. >> it's really cool. ( laughs ) >> reporter: first a picture of a dirty lens and this tweet from nasa: claiming the insight spacecraft was home. it guided itself into mars' thin atmosphere at more than 12,000mph. and eventually landed using a parachute and retro rockets to slow its descent. the success is sweeter when you consider only 40% of 44 missions to mars worldwide accomplish their goals. project manager, tom hoffman. na absolutely. the science of this literally is ground breaking for insight. we have a probe that's going to f, hopefully, 16 feet into mars. first time we've done anything other than scratch the surface. he reporter: mars and earth were shaped at the same time,our ios ago. nasa hopes to learn more about both by digging deep into the red planet's core.
>> what we're going to learn is sltimately how safe is mars for human activity, and where is it safe, and when is it safe. >> reporter: this is a full- sized scale model of the spacecraft. now that it's landed, there is even more work to do, like collecting data on meteors and mars quakes. neff, that will determine if it's ever safe enough for humans it travel to mars. me glor: kind of makes me want o go on the insight there, jamie, you should jump in if you get a chance. that's pretty cool.
