tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN July 3, 2019 2:00am-3:00am PDT
have a struggling -- help a struggling summer season? "spider-man: far from home" estimated to bring in $125 million over the six-day holiday opening. good news for a season down roughly 9% compared to last year. multiple sequels including "men in black international" and "dark phoenix" underperformed, and "toy story 4" couldn't match the high expectations. even if "spider-man" doesn't save the dave, there's still time -- save the day, there's still time to recover. the highly anticipated reboot of "the lion king" opens july 19th. experts say it could be the biggest movie of the year. thanks to our international viewers for joining us. have a great rest of your day. for our u.s. viewers, "early start" continues right now. 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. a legend in the auto industry has died. we're remembering lee iacocca. and one win away. the u.s. women's national team heading to the world cup final. good morning, welcome to "early start." i'm michelle kosinski. >> i'm dave briggs. today we'll find out who they'll play in the world cup final. wednesday, july 3rd. 5:00 a.m. in the east. we start on our southern border. a new and dire warning about conditions for migrants at the 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. over the last few months, the going influx of migrant families and children has led to longer times in custody and overcrowding at facilities meant to be temporary. >> the situation at the border grows more urgent by the day. the border patrol leading the search for a 2-year-old missing in the rio grande. on monday a woman who just crossed the river into text told agents she had lost her daughter on the way. of course this comes just a week after that terrible image of a man and his daughter who drowned trying to cross the rio grande. nick valencia with more on conditions at the border from el paso, texas. >> reporter: dave and michelle, this new report by the office of the inspector general is based off of five visits to the southern border. principally in mcallen and weslico, texas. what is clear from images emerging 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 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 dhs officials who 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? >> okay. thanks. 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, 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 in
intake, and it might be dangerous or contagious. >> there's also new fallout from that facebook group of current and former customs and border patrol agents who joked about the plight of migrants. in an exclusive interview, an agent claimed he heard a supervisor making fun of dead immigrants. >> he was making fun of them. >> reporter: 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 that secret facebook page directly undermines the public's trust. a new cnn poll does show about three quarters of americans consider the situation at the border a crisis. that's up from less than half in january. 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 each though hours earlier the administration announced the citizenship question would not be on the 2020 census. it was commerce secretary wilbur ross who originally ordered the census bureau to add the question. yesterday he said the bureau 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 allies 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. so 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 and control the security. that's nearly triple the typical guard activation for the event. overnight the pentagon began delivering a pair of 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 are 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. cleat complete with cell phone. 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. there's something strange surrounding mike pence. no one seems to know why me abruptly canceled an appearance in new hampshire onitudes. moments before -- on 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, but an advanced staff member told the audience there was a, quote, emergency, and pence would not be coming. the vice president's office is only saying there was no kauds for alarm -- no cause for alarm. quality, hard work, commitment. the stuff america was made of. without them there is no future. >> lee iacocca, a legend in the auto industry and bestselling on author, has died. for decades he was one of america's best-known business executives. the former chrysler ceo was also a master pitchman appearing in a series of commercials telling consumers, quote, if you can find a better car, buy it. he's also credited with saving the number-three automaker from bankruptcy in the 1980s which got him on the "time" magazine cover, "detroit's comeback kid." before that at ford iacocca developed the iconic mustang.
asked about the secret to his success, he said, "i hire people brighter than me, and then i get out of the way." he's survived by two daughters and eight grandchildren. he was 94. not guilty on the top charges. a navy seal acquitted of killing an isis prisoner in iraq could be a free man today. pampers is the first and only diaper with three extra absorb channels. they stay up to three times drier so babies can sleep soundly all night
has been excellent. they really appreciate the military family and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today.

error. polls show 60% of likely iowa caucus-goers may change their as for their second choice, iowa democrats picked harris followed by warren and mayor pete buttigieg. on the issues the polls suggest we'll likely hear a lot about health care, climate change, and immigration. many of the candidates will be spending the holiday week on the stump in iowa. and we cannot wait to see a chris cuomo interview with joe biden starts airing here friday morning. >> yes to that. >> that will be good tv. he's been relatively hiding from the national interviews. and chris focuomo is a tough on. >> all of the questions about the controversy. we have editor and publisher of "inside elections," political analyst. good to see you, sir. good morning. we want to talk about 2020, the quinnipiac looking at biden, sliding biden, i know i'm good at this -- >> the campaign should thank you for that later. >> biden's down 8%.
and who else? kamala harris, the riser, up 13 points. what's your broad takeaway? were people supporting biden based on a memory and once they were faced with the actual biden they weren't so thrilled with what they saw? >> i think his support was more than just name i.d. i mean, there are many democratic primary voters who have known joe biden for a long time. i think they appreciate what he's done, including being vice president to president obama. i think there was -- it was deeper than name i.d. but it also is not an impenetrable lead that he has right now. i'm excited about this point in the race because we were so quick after the debate that we have to declare a winner within just a couple of minutes. now we know what some actual primary voters think. that's most important, particularly in iowa. and that's why the poll i think should be concerning for vice president biden because there's been movement including with senator harris and senators
warren. but it should be concerning for senator bernie sanders who is dropping -- bernie sanders doesn't have the advantage of being the only one talking about his messages. like what he did in 2016. there are 10 or 12 candidates that are talking about his same issues. and i don't know that he can recover if he continues to lose support. >> i have to say, though, when you see these numbers shifting dramatically and it's kind of like, whoa, kamala harris, how much of this do you think is just the excitement over the new person who is strong going up against bide senior citizen and if this was all about that debate performance, how much do you think biden can turn it around in this performance about to happen with chris cuomo? >> reporter: michelle, are you exactly right. i think we still have a long way to go. we're going to have more twists and turns. i keep coming back to october -- september/october of 2015 when ben carson was surging in the polls. he was even with donald trump, even pulling ahead of donald trump in some national and some
iowa polls. that was just a couple of months before iowa. carson finished fourth in iowa, barely registering in new hampshire. you know, i think there are going to be more candidates who have a surge or an opportunity. it's who can after you get a surge, can you build on that and kind of have a new foundation for your campaign. i think that's key for senators harris and warren right now. >> to the border, and shameful is what the conditions are according to the new york daily news. brutal pictures that we showed earlier. but the politics is interesting because the country does now feel this is a full-blown crisis. it is now three quarters of the country according to our own cnn polling that says people consider it a crisis. and the number i focused on is the democrats who have said it is. 70% of democrats said it's a crisis. up from 23% in january. now, that is for different reasons.
democrats feel it's a crisis because of the humanitarian conditions at the border r. they vulnerable, the 2020 candidates, given that their stance now is decriminalizing border crossing and giving them health care? >> yeah. i've been trying to think a lot politically about what's amiss here. and i do think that the two parties are focused on different parts of the problem. democrats are going to those centers and facilities, they're trying to figure out how to improve the conditions. republicans in the white house are saying don't come at all. we shouldn't -- these people shouldn't be coming here at all. and i think both of those are problems. but i think the two parties are not willing to solve the -- you know, what the other side sees as an issue. that's where i think we're missing each other. moving forward to the general election for the presidential race, depending on the nominee, there's a potential for this to be a liability for democrats. if you're one of the candidates who said not only should we not have any new -- a new wall, there shouldn't be any wall or any barrier, we shouldn't
criminalize or shouldn't penalize people who are coming across the border illegally. i think that is a potential liability for democrats. >> it issue not going away. good to see you, sir. have a happy 4th. >> happy 4th. if we haven't pumped c.c. enough, here's one more reminder. you don't want to miss former vice president joe biden sitting down with chris cuomo starting 6:00 a.m. here cnn. should be a fantastic interview. quality, hard work, commitment, the stuff america was made of. without them there is no future. >> lee iacocca has died. for decades he was one of america's best-known business executives. the former chrysler ceo is also a master pitchman, appearing in a series of tv commercials telling consumers, quote, if you can find a better car, buy it. he's also credited with saving the number-three automaker from bankruptcy in the 1980s which got him on the cover of "time"

the s&p 500 closed at 2,973 points tuesday. the highest level ever. stocks are doing well, but they could be doing even better if it weren't for trump's trade wars. experts say the s&p 500 would be at 3,100 points if you took out all the days where trade affected the market. there are still underlying worries about the global economy. the temporary truce between president trump and president chi chi did not cancel tariffs -- president xi jinping did not canc cancel the tariffs on goods imported from the european union. nevertheless, trump tweeted earlier tuesday that the economy was, quote, the best it has ever been. 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 allies received some of the 500 vip

suffering from a slight hamstring injury. but no rapinoe, no problem. there was some stunning quality across the board. kristen press with the early go. crystal dunn was a rocking defense. rose lavell was immense midfield. then alex morgan on her birthday creating headlines not only with her goal, her sixth of the tournament, but also her celebration. she's not 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 for her to remember. >> to say it's the
best birthday ever? >> i would say so. i mean, how can you beat this? yeah. >> reporter: well, what a night for goalkeeper alyssa naeher. answering those who questioned her credentials in pretty sensational form. she approved the match winner
really. she saved the penalty from england's captain later in the second half. it really was as stunning as you'd of wanted a semifinal to be. i felt privileged to be there. despite the results. the usa know they'll be back here in the big one on sunday. and later on wednesday, we'll find out if it will be the netherlands or sweeten joining them. -- or sweden joining them. >> i love your british graciousness. and we will have a cup of tea in your honor today. we'll be right back. this is rick blomquist. his life is pretty comfortable. then, he laid on a serta and realized his life was only just sorta comfortable. i've been living a lie.
