10:00 am
minister ahead of the funeral. join cnn from london live, as the country and the world remember queen elizabeth ii. the state funeral of queen elizabeth, live monday, here on cnn. that's "inside politics" and we'll see you tomorrow. hello. thanks for joining us. we begin with human beings shipped hundreds of miles to make a political point. florida's governor proudly taking credit to send two planes filled with migrants to martha's vineyard. local officials, volunteers, now scrambling to set up shelters for the estimated 50 people who arrived. this was the scene near the vice president's home in washington, d.c. two buses of migrants arriving there this morning, sent by
10:01 am
republican texas governor greg abbott. a surprise to the volunteers who raced to receive those people. some are families, men, women, and most that can't speak english, to defend themselves. as officials scramble to get them food and shelter. in new york, the mayor says his sanctuary city is nearing a breaking point with more than 11,000 asylum seekers dropped off there since may. we're covering each city and all of the angles here and the impacts of this escalating battle. we begin there on martha's vineyard. cnn's miguel marquez. we know you arrived there a short time ago. what do you know about the migrants there and how they are doing right now? >> they are doing well, given everything they are been through. everyone i have spoken to, i have spoken to about a dozen of them so far. they are all in san antonio, texas, yesterday morning. and then, they arrived here. we know a little about them.
10:02 am
there's about seven families among the 50 on the 2 planes. there's four children between the ages of 3 and 8 that are here, as well. and the planes arrive here at martha's vineyard, in about 20 minutes, the airport manager said. this is the st. andrews parish house across the street from the church here. this is where they have set up. the people that pulled together, there's five towns on this island. it's well known for the rich and famous that come here during the summer, there's about 20,000 people that are here all year round. and they are organizing to get all of this together. i want to talk about this to one of the organizers. larkin stalling. you are with the martha's vineyard community services. >> correct. >> you are helping out. what are the immediate needs you're meeting right now? >> now, it's housing, food,
10:03 am
legal support, medical support. and we have harbor holmes who is running this facility as we speak. have you had a chance to hear the stories and speak to some of the folks? all of them are claiming asylum of some sort, political or otherwise. they all are here and have cases in texas or one person said cincinnati, in a month or two months. >> we have a couple that i have spoken to that have cases coming up in new york in 15 days. boston, a couple in boston. and d.c. did we have one in california? >> all of this to say, this is going to be a logistical heavy lift. 20,000 people. you're here year-round, correct? >> yes. >> people think of the rich and famous on martha's vineyard.
10:04 am
50 immigrants. what sort of stress does that put on martha's vineyard? >> the truth is, of course, the fact that it came in such short notice. there's the stress. we have some incredible people here. harbor homes for the homeless. and social services and health and human services network. safety net. so, we've got the bodies to do this. the biggest problem was, the short notice. and that was obviously intentional. >> thank you very much. thank you for doing that work. amazing to see so many people coming together to try to help meet the immediate needs of 50 people. and then, at this point, they're not sure if more will be coming. >> there's a spirit of service that we're hearing there, miguel. i have a question, though. if you can provide some clarity. flight data shows that the mi
10:05 am
xwrant migrants are from texas. that's the entry point in the u.s. why was the governor of florida involved in sending them to massachusetts? >> it sounds like it was a high degree of coordination here. all these individuals that we have spoken to, and everybody in these groups say they all came from venezuela. they had a journey to texas, through mexico. all in san antonio. somebody came by and said, do you want an opportunity. do you want food? do you want a job? they put them on a plane and arrived here. that plane stopped in florida, stopped in north carolina, there were two planes. they stopped along the way. but it sounds like governor desantis, because florida has money, they freed up money to pay for the planes to come up to martha's vineyard. and obviously, that the buses at the vice president's residence, in d.c., were sent in by texas.
10:06 am
so, clearly, there is some organization here. one interesting thing, as well, when the planes arrived here, there were vans waiting for them. sounds like a charter company may have done that. otherwise, they had about 20 minutes notice that planes were coming. and not until they got off the plane did they realize these were migrants from other parts of the world. back to you. >> miguel, thank you. we know you will continue to talk to people and do your work that you're doing on the ground. to washington, d.c., where the latest round of buses from texas, governor greg abbott showed up outside of vice president harris' home this morning. did these migrants know they were going to d.c.? >> ana, some of them knew they were coming to washington but not to the home of the vice president, here at the u.s. naval observatory. there were volunteers and nonprofits set up to receive them at union station. about four miles down the road, where most of the buses have been dropping off. there was this confusion and scramble this morning when
10:07 am
suddenly, there were about 100 people, some of them families with children, stranded on the sidewalk behind me. in some cases, holding garbage bags of belongings, not knowing where to go or what to do. some of the people started to figure out they were part of a political stunt. governor greg abbott of texas, tweeting out these migrants were sent to the vice president's backyard, as this message about president biden securing our border. and we also spoke with one of the migrants who had made a long journey with his wife, all the way from venezuela, who talked about that road and winding up here in d.c. >> we didn't know where we were going to get to. only the bus left us here. and they didn't tell us where we were. but they left us here. long, a 40-day journey. i had been from venezuela to here. this crossing is very difficult to bring the child here. it's eight days of jungle,
10:08 am
through the darian jungle, something extremely difficult. >> the 100 people have been moved to a nearby church. they are getting services and resources as they figure out where they need to head next. >> we know, it's costing the taxpayers in texas, millions of dollars for them to bus and direct these migrants to these other states and cities. thank you, gabe, for your reporting. i want to head to texas and the southern border, ground zero on this crisis. let's be clear. my understanding is, most of the migrants are being bussed to sanctuary citiesrendered at the border and claimed asylum. can you help us better understand where the people are in terms of immigration process? >> you know, a lot of the
10:09 am
individuals. a lot of them are into the country pending immigration proceedings. this is video from eagle pass. this is what happens. we've seen it many times along the u.s./mexico border. mi grant migrants cross the rio grande. from there, they are taken to processing facilities. title 42, that allows immigrants to return to mexico, is in effect. i talked to them in mexico. now, many are allowed into the united states. and once they're processed by border patrol, they are taken by border patrol, to places along the u.s./mexico border. i've been to many of the border towns and talked to many of the migrants at the respite centers. to be clear, this has happened for years. this is not new.
10:10 am
it's happened for many years. many of the migrants have been here over the years and that's where we talk to them. i was there a few days ago. i was able to see the documents that a lot of the migrants were given by customs and border protection. they have documents that were stamped patrolled into the united states. allowed to come into the united states. that, in these respite centers, that's where the abbott buses are waiting for migrants there. and migrants that want to go to the northeast, to new york, to d.c., to chicago, are then allowed to get on the buses and go on their way. here's the key. so many migrants i talk to are excited and elated that these buss are available because they're free. the migrants do not have money. a lot of them are here for
10:11 am
economic reasons. a lot of them do not have money to get out of the border area and into their destinations for family ies across the country. what the buses are doing, courtesy of the taxpayer, is getting them closer to that destination. >> and numbers are surging at the border. i don't think anyone would argue it's texas' responsibility alone, to care for every migrant. the state only started sending buses to democrat-led cities earlier this year. i wonder what did texas do previously? >> you know, texas, for years, has focused on the enforcement, on the law enforcement on the border. and it is something that the governor has, including abbott, put it in the past, they focus of filling in the gaps of security, where border patrol can't because of surges of different points in time that we all covered. what's changed, and this is the
10:12 am
interesting and fascinating part of this. what has changed is the cost. who is paying for this? that story i was sharing with you, where migrants are taken to respite centers and pr from the they go to places across the country. before governor abbott started to offer the buses, the migrants would pay for the bus tickets themselves. their family members across the country would send them money to the border and pay for these bus tickets or plane tickets. it was coming from the pockets of the migrants or family members. what is different now is that the taxpayer is now paying for it. it's being politicized. that's what is different. that's what is what we are seeing across the border. i can have a little more time here, anna i can have a little more time here, anna, because the word is
10:13 am
spreading in mexico. the cartels are using this as a way to encourage migrants to cross the border. i just talked to an organization, a nonprofit, a respite center. the director of the respite center said that migrants are arriving to the u.s. asking about abbott's buses. a few weeks ago, i interviewed the dhis secretary. i said, what i'm hearing from people, from a sheriff, is that the cartels are using this information to encourage mi xw migrants to cross the border. is that the intelligence you're hearing? and what he said, that is not the intelligence he has, to be clear. but he said, it wouldn't surprise him, ana, if that were the case, because that's what human smuggling organizations do. that's what criminal organizations do. they lie and they take advantage of migrants. and in this case, migrants were wanting to come to the border for a better life. >> right. now, they're the victims on both sides of the border it sounds
10:14 am
like. and it sounds like the actions being taken by the texas governor are backfiring, that that is potentially surging more immigrants to come or migrants to cross the border there. thank you for covering these different pieces of a much larger, complicated story. here in new york, the mayor says, the system is nearing its breaking point. since may, city officials estimate nearly 12,000 asylum seekers have arrived here. 8,500 living in city shelters right now. and mayor eric adams is vowing to keep the city open. >> it doesn't matter if you came here on the mayflower or the bus at the port authority, you deserve the dignity and respect that this city continues to show. we're going to have open doors to them, not close the doors in their faces, like we're seeing in other parts of this country.
10:15 am
>> the executive director of the new york immigration coalition. mayor adams says, new york's crisis is nearing a breaking point. is that how you would describe it? >> thank you for covering this. we as a city in new york and the state of new york, have responded in situations, that we will be a welcoming city. new york has welcomed refugees for centuries, from europe, the caribbean, from the former soviet union and asia and africa. immigrants have been integral to keeping us fed during the pandemic and revitalizing our upstate cities. what we're seeing right now is simply despicable and cruel on behalf of governor -- texas governor abbott and recently last night, what florida governor desantis is doing, which is playing politics with
10:16 am
people's lives. asylum seekers is escaping violence, persecution, and government collapses. and folks are using individuals, people, who are seeking refuge in this country, in a horrific way. new york has responded to support the influx of people to provide them with a welcome dignity. shoutout to organizations on the ground. team tlc, new york city, that has been holding it down, as well as groups like the new york immigration coalition. yes. our shelter system has been, in need of reassessment for the past 20 years. not just because asylum seekers have come here. we had a housing crisis for 20 years. it's not an issue that has been impacted by asylum seekers. yes, they are going into a system that isn't the best. but it's somewhere where folks
10:17 am
are able to get a bed to put their head on. >> we just heard from rosa, i heard the reaction that you are sharing in terms of the outrage. and you called it cruelty. others have said they are treating human beings like cargo. and the other hand, saying in terms of her own conversations with some of the hmigrants, man are grateful to get on the buses to get to other parts of the u.s. in terms of your own conversations with the migrants arriving here in new york, what are you hearing from them about their journeys and their ultimate goals and where they are trying to get and what they are trying to accomplish? >> it's not that we're condemning governor abbott and others who are sending buses or planes to other areas in the u.s. simply because they are helping transport people. that's not the case here. they are using asylum seekers as political pawns in their game.
10:18 am
they are not doing it humanely. people are being transported with little or no food, little or no water and little medical treatment. that's what the condemnation is geared towards them. we're seeing people continuing to show up. many people are not understanding that they were being sent to new york about 30% of people now earlier on, it was much more. you know, intending not to come to new york city. we're seeing folks continue to get -- you're going to be relieved when you're welcome in a dignified and respectful way. you had to do this journey of almost 3,000 miles on foot, to be treated in such a horrible way in texas. it is a sense of relief. for people that didn't want to come here, another set of angst and anxiety and i don't know how you get to the next place. >> and new york is not a cheap
10:19 am
city. it's not easy to navigate. there's new challenges ahead for those folks. murad sprsz awawdeh, i appreciate your time and your service, and thanks for joining us this afternoon. economic crisis seemingly av averted. rail companies have struck a tentative deal with the union workers steering the nation clear of a strike that could have crippled the fragile supply chain. the biden administration helped broker after 20-straight hours of negotiations. they got to this end point. and vanessa is in cleveland for us. president biden spoke on this a short time ago. what is he saying? >> president biden took a victory lap in the rose garden. the administration was integral in getting the unions and the rail lines to reach a deal before this friday deadline that would have sent 60,000 rail
10:20 am
workers on strike. president biden tasked marty walsh with making sure the two sides reach a deal. walsh was with the negotiators during this 20-hour marathon. our colleague said that president biden placed a call around 9:00 p.m., urging them and impressing upon them how critical it was for them to reach a deal, in order to not inflict economic pain president biden praised all sides, saying it was a win for all sides, including americans. and reminding that the rail workers are front line workers. >> during the early, dark, uncertain days of the pandemic, they showed up so every american could keep going. they worked tirelessly, to ensure that families got the
10:21 am
deliveries they needed during these difficult few years. they earn and deserve the ben benefits. this is a great deal for both sides in my view. >> now, it is up to union leaders to take this agreement back to members and sell it to them. the union leaders would not have agreed if it was a bad deal. they believe it's a home run deal, they told us moments ago. it will be the union members in a couple weeks will vote yes or no, on this agreement. >> i can hear the sigh of relief out there. a key player now cooperating, according to a new report. donald trump's right-hand man in the white house, mark meadows has complied with a subpoena from the justice department. what that could mean for the january 6th investigation. and bad news if you're trying to buy a home right now.

to a cnn exclusive report. mark meadows has complied with a subpoena to the justice department ain its january 6th investigation. he turned over the materials to the house select committee, which included thousands of texts and e-mails. if you watch the committee
10:27 am
hearings, you know meadows was very much a part of the testimony we heard. >> i said, how long is he going to carry on with this stolen election stuff? where is this going to go? and at that time, meadows caught up with me and said, i think that he's becoming more realistic and knows that there's a limit how far he can take this. >> leaning against the doorway and said some information conversations through mark, sounds like we're going to go to the capitol. he didn't look up from his phone and said something to the effect of, there's a lot going on. but i don't know. things might get real bad on january 6th. >> i remember pat saying something to the effect of, mark, we need to do something more. they're literally calling for the vice president to be hung. and mark had responded something to the effect of you heard it,
10:28 am
pat. he thinks mike deserves it. >> the senior legal analyst is here with us now. elliot, meadows is the highest ranking trump official who has responded to a subpoena by the d.o.j. what could this mean for the investigation and for trump? >> mark meadows is a pivotal figure of this investigation. he was chief of staff. he was with donald trump's side, in the weeks and months leading up to. and on january 6th, he was the insider's insider. about a year ago now, the house january 6th committee, subpoenaed mark meadows. and he compliyied sort of. he turned over text records showing key players, republican elected officials, media figures, top trump advisers all going through mark meadows talking about january 6th and the plan to steal the election. one example, jim jordan, representative, texted mark meadows. vice president mike pence should
10:29 am
call out all electoral votes he believes are unconstitutional, as no vote at all. meadows said, i pushed for this, not sure it's going to happen. meadows complied until he stopped and told the committee, i'm done. the committee referred him for contempt over to the justice department, which decided not to prosecute mark meadows criminally. the subpoena we're talking about now, that is a criminal grand jury subpoena from the u.s. department of justice. you cannot defy that. if you do, you will get locked up. we'll see if d.o.j. wants to get more than the information he's given to congress and get all of the texts and testimony for mark meadows. >> given his role and a white house official during the trump administration, what about executive privilege. >> executive privilege is meant to comply between the communication of the president and the chief of staff. it's not automatic. the courts will ask, was this a legitimate policy discussion? was it something that needs to be confidential? or on the other hand, was this conversation relating to
10:30 am
wrongdoing or criminality? if it's the latter, it won't be protected by executive privilege. d.o.j. may be teeing off that fight with mark meadows. >> let's pivot to the mar-a-lago documents. the investigation that the d.o.j. has asked the judge to pause her order on the special master and said they may appeal that special master ruling today, right? what happens next? >> moving parts here. two weeks ago, the judge said we will have a special master. we will have an outside independent person. looks like they settled on this senior judge, who will take all 11,000 documents to mar-a-lago, review the documents and take out anything that's privileged, executive privilege and send the rest on to d.o.j. however, d.o.j. then essentially appealed. they said, judge, with regard to 100 of the 11,000 total documents -- we're talking about 1% here, but the most important ones, the classified documents. the d.o.j. said to to the judge,
10:31 am
we want you to stay, pause the order on the documents. we need them right now on our investigation. we need to make sure the intelligence community can use them. and the d.o.j. said to the judge, we give you until thursday. if you don't decide by then or decide against us, we will appeal from the district court, where we are now, the trial-level court, up to the 11th circuit court of appeals. we could see a ruling from the judge today, maybe she'll agree to put on hold the 100 classified documents. if she was, d.o.j. will be potentially satisfied. and she may tell the d.o.j., tough luck. i'm sticking with my potential order. >> she doesn't have a deadline to respond to them. she gave them a deadline for their next move. we'll have to see who moves first. >> judges don't love being given deadlines by prosecutors. i would have never tried that. we'll see how she reacts. >> thank you, as always. as the world says good-bye and pays its respects to the queen, we are getting new details about her funeral, just

home buyers beware. mortgage rates have jumped again. they are now 6% for the first time since 2008. during the great recession. rahel, bring us up to speed about why this keeps happening. and could the rates keep going up? >> it's happening because of something we talk about so much. inflation. the fed, the federal reserve has raised interest rates four times. and the fed doesn't set mortgage rates. but they're influential in mortgage rates. i want to take you down to mortgage rates and show you where they have been over the last year. it has been a steady climb higher. we're above 6.6%.
10:45 am
that's twice where we were a year ago, when rates were 2.8%. and twice what we were at the beginning of this year, when the average 30-year was at 3.2%. to put this in perspective, let's say you want to buy a home for $$390,000. you put 20% down. a year ago, that would have cost you about $1,300 a month. that same home, same price, same downpayment, but at 6.02% interest, you're paying almost $600 more per month. this is why affordability has become a real challenge and why we have seen activity really plummet for new homes. it has become increasining more expensive to buy a home. and there's a lack of a supply in the market. >> hang tight on that. let's talk about better news, i guess you could call it. jobless claims, new lows and consumer spending looking a little more positive?

>> encouraging news, certainly. jobless claims is our weekly look how many americans are looking for unemployment. and the number we got was 213,000. that's lower than economists were expecting and lower than the week prior. so, clearly, companies holding on to those workers they fought so hard to get over the last few years, as we dealt with labor shortages. and on the retail sales front, retail sales are on the surprise, too. they increased over the last month and over the last year, 9.1%, as we saw a strong spending for auto, cars, restaurants and people hang out in the summer and summer activity and hang out at restaurants. >> we know there's a lot of summer travel. rahel, thank you. listen to this, the founder of patagonia is taking the climate crisis fight to a new level by giving away his business, essentially. the outdoor apparel company will be largely in the hands of a nonprofit and it will make sure that the profits, about $100
10:47 am
million, go to protect nature and bioverdiversity. let's bring in bill weir. this seems very outside the box. >> this is a very outside-the-box ceo we're talking about. i'll give you a little life lesson. in 1968, he climbed into a volkswagen van with friends. among them doug thompsons who founded north face and espirit. and he founded huge parks down in south america. his idea was let's save as much of the planet as we can from the ravages of capitalism. he looks s he's going to design new form of capitalism. earth is the only shareholder. extracting resources and turning it into wealth, he wants to take the profits and put it into the
10:48 am
source of all of our wealth, our livable planet. >> it's so interesting. and he never wanted to be a billionaire. this is a guy that has significant money that i assume could make a real impact. however, we're talking about the climate crisis. this is a global problem. what kind of impact could $100 million a year actually have? >> you know, it's a drop in the bucket given the scale, the enormity of what needs to be done out there. it's all how you spend it, right? he has, patagonia has over 1,000 different grass roots organizations that they send grants to and support. they hope the customers will not just buy their stuff but support these, as well. this is bird watchers or people protecting parks or regenerative farmers or fishermen, trying to get a coalition of people who love the outdoors and depend on it, to think about consumption in a different way. that can have as big an impact as throwing at a carbon capture
10:49 am
idea. >> maybe it will lead to a trickle-down effect with other people. maybe it starts to snowball. >> at the same time, to be realistic, we're living in the age of fast fashion. garment factories in asia, hugely polluting operations. they take enormous water to feed the demand for instagram fashion that's in a landfill 50 minutes later. culture has to change before you fix climate change. at least how we think about life as consumers. but it is a bold move. and it also will give him an opportunity, some are saying, there are tax advantages. it allows him to do advocacy spending without disclosing where the donor is coming from, if he wants to get into politics and advertising that way. we'll see. >> thank you, bill weir. >> you bet. >> so interesting to talk about walking the walk, not just talking the talk there. 1 1/2 years is a long time to be on mars. what did nasa's perseverance

. it's been on mars for a year and a half, so what has the perseverance recovery found? nasa now sharing. let's bring in kristin fischer. what do we know, kristin? >> ana, the perseverance rover has collected 12 samples and the most recent samples that this rover collected contain the highest concentration of organic
10:55 am
materials. organic materials are the building blocks of life and what you see here is a video that nasa just released during a press conference. this is nasa's jet propulsion laboratory which runs this rover. what you're seeing there is the jez row crater delta. you can even see some of the wheel tracks right there in the distance. that is where the rover came from. it's traveled about eight miles in 18 mods, and now it's in this river delta a place that scientists believe used to be a river. it's all dried up now, and ran into a lake. that's where they're trying to get the rock samples from. let me just read you to some of the things that these scientists are saying. they're saying these are exactly the kinds of rocks we came to investigate. the data is matching the expectations. right there you can see three holes where the perseverance rover actually drilled into the ground of the surface of mars and then extracted those rocks.
10:56 am
you can see exactly what that looks like. right there. that is the sample inside the drill of the rover, just an incredibly complicated thing to be able to do. so ana, i just want to be clear, this is not proof of life on mars. this is not even proof that life once existed on mars. it is simply very good probability, high probability -- >> fascinating stuff. >> -- that if those samples come back to earth, the proof could be in there. >> thank you so much, kristin. that does it for us today. thank you for being with us. the news continues right after this. lami andnd pepperoni! it's the dreamam team of meats. i've still got my uniform. it's subway's biggest refresh yeyet. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
