tv   New Day Weekend with Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  February 10, 2019 4:00am-5:01am PST

4:00 am
in the question of whether or not ralph northam should resign. with that, much brighter spotlight on justin fairfax in recent days. i stand here today to declare that i am a candidate for president of the united states of america. >> i certainly think the president is going to haunt her and go after her over and over on twitter. >> has anybody else worn black face in college? >> i have a question. what if the black face was just part of your costume of a black person? >> you see, tom, that is the exact kind of thing that we are looking for here today. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. good sunday morning to you. we start this morning with a political crisis in virginia.
4:01 am
vanessa tyson and meredith watson are two women accusing the lieutenant governor of sexual assault and rape respectively and now say they are prepared to testify at impeachment hearings. >> lieutenant governor justin fairfax denies the allegations and wants the fbi to investigate. he said in a statement the one thing i want to make clear i know then and today that the interactions were consensual. >> the governor northam says he is not going anywhere. a new poll shows the people are split when asked if northam should step down. last week he admitted to using black face to darken his face as michael jackson at a dance contest. cnn's caylee hartung is following the later. >> reporter: the leaders call for lieutenant governor justin
4:02 am
fairfax's resignation, he is pleading for due process. in a statement he released late saturday night, he calls for an investigation here. he asks for the first time for the nib to be involved and, again, he emphatically denies the allegations against him. in a statement, we heard a man trying to give context to two sexual encounters which he doesn't deny happened but which he says were consensual. a clear disagreement between a man and two different women about the nature of their sexual interaction. the calls for virginia governor to resign has quieted a bit. we have a poll conducted from "the washington post" from wednesday of this past weir to friday. before fairfax second accuser came forward, we learn that virginians are deadlocked in
4:03 am
whether their governor should step down in the middle of racially charged behavior in the past when he was a college student and wearing black face, 47% of residents of virginia are torn on that question. when you break the number down further, he has incredibly high support among african-american voters in the commonwealth. they supported him 58% to 37%, that is 58% of african-americans polled in favor of ralph northam continuing to serve as the governor of the commonwealth, while white voters polled much err more evenly split. "the washington post" wrote this survey is a snapshot of the competing and sometimes conflicting emotions in a state with a complicated 400-year history of racial division. >> kaylee, thank you. in his first interview since that racist photo surfaced, northam says he wants to spend the remaining time in office to
4:04 am
ensure that black virginians have the same opportunities as whites. northam said this. all righty. talking about the 2020 race and another morning and another democrat who is jumping in this afternoon. minnesota senator amy klobuchar is expected to join the race for the white house after elizabeth warren officially entered the field yesterday. klobuchar will likely make the announcement today and join more than half dozen people who have made an announcement officially and there are at least that many that are considering it. several of them are going to be campaigning today. senator cory booker and kirsten
4:05 am
gillibrand and elizabeth warren on the campaign trail today. >> this is the fight of our lives. the fight to build an america where dreams are possible and america that works for everyone. and that is why i stand here today to declare that i am a candidate for president of the united states of america. >> we will hear something similar likely from senator amy klobuchar. that means two more 2020 candidates this weekend into the race. more are expected to jump in after that. one democrat has been at this for about a year and a half now. look at former congressman john delany ground game.
4:06 am
he is taking his 14th trip to new hampshire on monday. joining us is former maryland congressman john delaney. welcome. >> thank you. >> reporter: i want to start with policy so we don run out of time for that before we get to the horse race. let's start what we heard from cortez introducing a new green deal net zero gas emissions and guaranteed jobs and health care and access to green space. it's supported by many of your competitors in the race for the 2020 nomination for democrats. you stopped short of supporting it. explain why and what your position is on it. >> so i definitely support the energy that it's brought to the debate, the fact that it's shining a spotlight on an incredibly important issue, global warming. an issue i've done a huge amount of work on. but i do think what we should be doing is focusing on solutions that we could get done right away, because the problem with
4:07 am
global warming is the time is of the essence and we have to start doing things immediately, which is why my plan is rooted in this kind of bipartisan carbon tax bill that i introduced in the congress last session, the first bipartisan carbon tax bill to be introduced. i think it shows we can build a coalition to get something done on climate right away, which is incredibly important. and i worry if we put out impractical goals we lose our ability to build the coalitions we need to get something done on climate right away. this has been a huge issue for me and the congress and we move the ball forward really far and i think we are in a position where we could actually get something big done, which would be a carbon tax that would fundamentalliy change the tragically of this issue. i think when you tie health care and other things and you set forth goals that aren't practical within a reasonable amount of time, that you lose
4:08 am
your ability to keep the coalition together. >> is that what you believe the green deal does? that is sets goals that are not practical in the next ten years as it sets up? >> yeah. i think the goals that it sets forth the next ten years are not, in fact, practical. they are ambitious goals and i applaud that and excited about the energy that it's brought to this discussion, but in terms of solving problems, which is what my campaign is about, which is actually getting people in a room, bringing people together and actually solving problems, i've shown that there is a way to do that on climate and we can get something done that will really start moving the needle and i worry if you push the goals to a point where they are not realistic, that you lose the kind of support you need to actually get something done. in other words, i'm more about action and progress than i am about just talk on these kind of issues. >> let's talk about getting people in a room and getting together on a solution. this conference committee on border security, you supported a
4:09 am
comprehensive immigration deal with a citizenship path. do you support what is reportedly on the table, which would be $2 billion for a barrier, if that is what this conference committee reaches, if it does not include, as part of this package, those that path to permanent citizenship for dreams and for tps recipients? >> i support doing something smart on border security. my opinion is get people in the room who know about border security and they will likely come back with recommendations that are mostly focused on technology solutions and additional personnel. if their recommendations include additional barriers, i would be supportive of that. i want to get something done on the dreamers. we have 1.8 million dreamers in this country. i think they go to bed every
4:10 am
night worried about whether or not they will be deported and i think this is a real moral issue for us as a country. so i really have been insistent upon trying to get dreamers taken care of as part of border security. but if you're doing border security on its own, then we should listen to the experts, we should allocate an appropriate amount of money and listen to the experts and accept their recommendations. >> if the experts suggest to the conference committee they support $2 billion for barriers, which we heard from the speaker that she would support $1, then you would support that compromise? >> again, i have a hard time imagining the only thing coming out of the conference report is barriers. i don't think that is what we are going to be looking at. >> i don't expect that is what they are talking about either but that would be part of this package for border security. let's talk now about the race. let's talk about the politics here. this is the most diverse field for a nomination ever. several women, a man of color
4:11 am
and women of color, and pete buttigieg who is gay. are you willing to pitch yourself as the nominee in such a diverse field to a party that is fully embracing diversity? >> i think embracing diversity is what we should be doing as a country. i think our leaders should reflect broadly the american people. i think diversity is one of the great strengths of the democratic party. my candidacy is real solutions to solve problems and focusing on the future. all of these changes in the world with technology, et cetera, having a profound effect on our world and we need to be focused on what we have to do to create a more prosperous and just future for our citizens. my campaign is also focused on bringing us together and restoring a sense of unity and common purpose. that is a very unique message
4:12 am
and much more of a centrist message. others are trying to solve problems and bring people together and restore a common purpose to our nation and what my campaign is about and i think will ultimately distinguish me from all of those terrific people i'm running against. >> john delaney, good to have you. >> thank you. the financial squeeze this tax season, are you feeling it? refunds are falling an average of 8%. we are going to talk about that. plus many in the hip-hop commune are rallying behind the release of 21 savage. we will talk to the high profile attorney that jay-z hired to help free this artist. a caravan of migrants are at the u.s./mexico border and in

president trump is heading to el paso, texas, tomorrow. he will host a rally to drive home his message for a border wall. >> at the same time, o'rourke will lead a march through el paso. cnn white house reporter sarah westwood is following the very latest. that sounds like it could get a little dicey, sarah. >> that's right. we are likely to see two very different narratives being pushed in el paso tomorrow night.
4:25 am
one is a call to action from president trump to address what he has described as an urgent security crisis along the southern border. he is trying to build support for his border wall as he considers using executive action to try to tap into federal funds to build it. and el paso is an interesting bill clinton dr backdrop to make that. it's an inaccuracy that beto o'rourke is likely to point out when he hoedslds a competing ra across the street at the president's event and he calls at the time march for truth through el paso before president's event. o'rourke said there is no security crisis at the border. he has described the wall as racist so those messages are certainly going to clash.
4:26 am
meanwhile, back in washington, negotiators are nearing a deal that could fund president's border wall. sources say that negotiators are settling around $2 billion to fund some kind of barriers along the border. obviously, that is less than half of the $5.7 billion that trump requested but it's more than the $1 house speaker nancy pelosi offered for the wall. so neither side really getting what they want out of this compromise. trump, nonetheless, going after democrats on twitter last night writing -- now we don't know if the president will support that deal emerging from conference. he has not given a lot of clarity as to exactly what kind of agreement he would support. but we know we will see more of this rhetoric, attacks on democrats and building up support for his wall at this
4:27 am
rally tomorrow night. >> sarah westwood, appreciate the update. thank you. there is deployment of texas national guard arriving in texas along the border. >> they are being sent to eagle pass, texas, to help secure the border crossing where a anxious group of migrants wait on the other side. cnn is there. >> reporter: security in eagle pass continues to be, in a word, intense. this is where we are allowed to stand when it gets to evening hours. normally, we would be allowed to go down to the banks of the rio grande which is about a quarter of a mile away. this is a public park. at nighttime it's considered we might be a danger to law enforcement. our lights or our presence could be a distraction. it's one indication of how life has drastically changed in this community. the texas border of eagle pass
4:28 am
is being invaded. state and local and federal authorities and military personnel have flooded this usually quiet community on the banks of the rio grande. look at that. it's a combination of customs and border protection vehicles and texas state troopers all lined up literally side-by-side, all nose phasing towards mexico. then if you take a look at across the rio grande on the other side of the border, just recently, we have seen this -- mexico authorities now lined up facing exactly the opposite direction. eagle pass's mayor is grateful but also a bit taken aback. >> we are extremely appreciative of the work they do but this is something that is unprecedented. >> reporter: law enforcement patrolling vehicles on atvs and bicycles and even horseback. helicopters monitor from above, while high-powered air boats prowl the shallow water of the rio grande. a security search is in response
4:29 am
to arrival of 1,800 migrants on the other side of the border set to have their sights on seeking u.s. asylum. president trump has declared such caravans a national security threat and uses them to justify a border wall, painting asylum seekers as invaders, as he did in his state of the union speech. >> as we speak, large organized caravans are on the march to the united states. >> reporter: federal authorities fear a potential repeat of last november's chaos near san diego when tear gas was used to drive back migrants rushing the border area. >> wow! >> reporter: thursday, border patrol agents were in riot gear on one of the town's two public bridges to mexico. bridge defenses are being beefed up. >> part of our preparations including insulation of temporary imimpediment measures
4:30 am
on our bridges. >> reporter: so far, authorities say no caravan members have crossed illegal into the u.s. local leaders credit not just the american show of force but also a new stepped-up effort by the mexican government to keep the caravan members under control. but processing 1,800 asylum seekers will take months. this is not a short-term fix? >> it doesn't seem like it but my officers stand committed. >> reporter: no one at eagle pass can tell you or show you how this showdown will end. the security in this community is only going to increase because come monday, the first members of the texas national graur guard will be showing up, adding to a force of what is already almost 2,000 law enforcement officers.

4:37 am
visitors overstay a visa and nothing more than that. a person like that does not need to be detained and caged and a person like that has been present in this country for decades who has a known face and known address should be allowed to be at liberty and deal with his case. >> so why do you believe he is being held? is it bauls of a broken system? because of celebrity, because of an error? what is your explanation or understanding of why? >> it's certainly a broken system, right? we have, again, a young man who came over here as one of the many dreamers who has led a productive life that employees many people that give back to his community so that is not the type of person we want to rip off the streets and put in a cage. certainly that speaks to a broken system. but there is more, because he actually was cooperating with his lawyers, he was applying for a proper visa. he had a visa application pen d pending and acting in good faith and bureaucratic delays that
4:38 am
made that visa not issued in time. >> correct me if i'm wrong, his visa expired in 2006. he has a pending visa application but that is pending only four years so nearly a decade in the middle there where he was in the country illegally with no pending application. was he wrong, has he been wronged by the press or was he just wrong? >> well, i'm glad you asked that, because i think we have to take a step back and picture this young man coming over here as a first grader and growing up in atlanta and trying to find his way and finding his way through the arts. only as he became an adult did he start to understand process, did he understand, you know, how to engage lawyers, how to apply for a visa, how to go through the process. so i guess you're right. when he was 14, he didn't think to himself i need to go down and stand in some line or go through some process. once he became an adult and took
4:39 am
responsibility for his life and its direction, he ban to work on this process and he has done so in good faith. >> if he is released, do you expect that he will be permitted to stay in the country? >> yes. >> why? >> well, we have a lot of different avenues in place to try to make sure that he remains here and he is a productive member of society. he has got good moral character and a lot of different aspects that an immigration court can look at in determining whether somebody is allowed to stay in the country and all of them weigh in his favor. he has got three young children, he is a father, he is a performer, a philanthropist. again, he employs many people here and a benefit to the community he lives in. >> when you talk about a benefit to the community he lives in, as a congressman is calling for his release as well and when this news initially broke last saturday going into the super bowl, there were reacttions ion
4:40 am
coming out. having born in the uk but he was so connected to atlanta. then it seemed to me things shifted where people started to have a conversation about immigration and a more serious conversation. why do you think that this story line, as it is, has taken a turn? >> well, a lot of the credit has to go to him. he's beloved in the music community and i think people feel a connection to him. what we saw is humanity overrunning the momentary blitz of negative pressure. i think people start to realize and start to picture that there is a man who should be at the grammys tonight but, instead, he is locked in a cage in a situation which many others have not been and should not be and other civilized countries would not be. i think people start to picture, you know, a young man who is in jail whose children are wondering where he is and they start to realize that this is a problem, that this is a problem in this country and that it's a

4:49 am
facing because of the scrutiny she is under. josh kubalk, is with us now. a senior writer of "vanity fair." what do we know about the five women, first? >> we don't know a whole lot. we know a little bit about they gave some identifying details. one is a friend from l.a., one is a former co-star, one is billed as a long time confidant but we don't know much more about that about their identities. >> i want to talk about the most persistent rumors out there and what they encounter. the public war, of course, between her, her father, her what do we know about the fact the press says that meghan is against both of them, that there's this huge feud. truth to that? >> yeah, i mean there have been rampant since she married into
4:50 am
the royal family, her father thomas with whom they haven't spoke in quite a long time and then her half-sister samantha and her half-brother thomas jr. she hasn't had communication with any of them in quite some time, but the father and half-sister have spoken to the press quite a bit. samantha likes to use twitter to communicate her feelings about what's going on with meghan. so there was a lot of controversy around the wedding itself because thomas did not attend the wedding. he had a heart attack in the week leading up to it. and these five friends in the "people" story as you pointed out come to meghan's defense and say meghan really was trying to get in touch with her father leading up to the wedding. she didn't hear from him. she hasn't changed her number. he knows how to reach her. so she, i guess, seems very distraught by it all and the
4:51 am
friends say she's upset because she was a beautiful daughter and wants to be on good terms with her father but he hasn't made that possible. she sent him a letter over the summer to try to communicate some of this and he wrote back asking for a photo op which she sort of saw as the final straw. >> yeah, no doubt. >> let's also discuss we have to talk about this, dutchess megha and her sister-in-law kate. rumors they are feuding, that they don't like each other. what do these friends say about this relationship? >> there was a big report that came out in the lead up to meghan's wedding she made kate middleton cry. a tiara related controversy that was related to asking for the right tiara and then there was something about princess charlotte's fitting that related in tiaras. so, yeah, there have been lots of reports about how they're getting along. the friends don't address kate

by name or anything about their specific relationship but she's been portrayed as a demanding boss, this diva-like character and that cannot be farther from the truth. that she's this wonderful person to work for. she put up an ice cream stand for people who work there and she, you know, has a box full of hand warmers to give out to the security guards outside. that she's kind of really embraced this life and, you know, she's very -- sees people eye to eye. she gets down to talk to people. so they talk about her as a very magnanimous, giving person who is very present in the moment. >> josh duboff, we appreciate you being here. >> thanks. really appreciate it. >> victor? >> complete whiteout conditions and a state of disaster. we have new video coming in of the dangerous winter storm slamming parts of the country.
