2:00 am
welcome to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and around the world. i'm kim brunhuber. ahead on "cnn newsroom," these are live images from london where in the coming hours th queen's grandchildren will hold a public vigil by her coffin. we'll take you to the line that stretches for miles. the white house reacts as republican governors say they won't stop sending migrants on one-way trips out of their states in to liberal strong
2:01 am
holds. and signs of torture, the u.n. says it will send a team to ukraine's recently liberated town of izium where a mass burial site has been discovered. ♪ the late queen elizabeth will lie in state for just two more days before her state funeral begins monday morning. that is not much time for the hundreds of thousands of people still waiting to pay their respects to the beloved monarch. the queue to pass by her coffin stretches for miles along the river thames with people at the very end being advised their turn to say good-bye might not come until tomorrow. later today some near the front may witness the queen's eight grandchildren hold their silent vigil at her coffin.
2:02 am
the queen's four children, king charles, princess anne, prince andrew, head their silent vigil on friday. this is a meticulously planned event and customs and traditions dating back centuries. and kate, first to the lineup, all these people who have come to see the queen, they expect some 2 million people, some waiting in line for up to 24 hours. are you surprised by the number of people coming and the dedication they are showing especially given how the debate these days is all about the relevance of the monarchy? >> yes, good morning, kim. i mean, i was really thinking when i initially heard that the authorities here, the queen was going to lie in state, as has been the case for her father, grandfather and great
2:03 am
grandfather george vi, v, and edward the 7th, but not queen victoria, that the queen would lie in state, that the estimates before 2200,000 people and i really thought that was conservative considering how many people i'd seen in the few days after the queen passed away coming down to buckingham palace, huge amounts of people. and i've been down there to the line, i've been chatting to the people in the line. and they really are such good spirits. it is a tough war because you are saying they were waiting for 10, 12, 24 hours. and yesterday they closed the queue said you couldn't join it and you had to cuequeue up agaio join the queue. and they said we want to pay our respects, she's been on the throne for 70 years and she's been the only queen i've ever known, that is what a lot of people have said to me. and also it is such a big moment in british history, such a huge moment in british history.
2:04 am
we have a lot of people i've been chatting to from all over the world. from australia, knew zealand, canada. the longest reigning monarch and we'll never have another queen of again. so it really is an end of an era. and there are questions about the monarchy and i think that there will be increasing questions in the reign of charles iii. but this is about the queen and the huge amount of affection and affection she inspired. >> absolutely. let's look ahead. what is to come today and tomorrow ahead of the funeral itself? >> the funeral as you were saying is on monday, the state funeral. state funerals are only for monarchs and so we only -- only for reigning monarchs. we did have one for winston chur
2:05 am
churchill, but that is the only one for a nonroyal. so the state funeral monday will be the first one since 18th century in westminster abbey. they are usually in saint george's chapel where harry and meghan got married and duke of heedinburgh had his funeral. and so this is reflecting that the great love for the queen. and i think it is very poignant she was crowned there, now she ends her reign there. but it also reflects how many people from across the world are coming. there are huge amounts of people already in the capital, you can't get a hotel room at all. it is really impossible to get a hotel room. and the prime minister of australia is already here, prime minister of new zealand is already here. we're expecting president biden at some point. and this is a moment we're expecting to be the biggest global event ever, hundreds and hundreds of people from heads of state from all over the world. we're expecting empoeror of japan, all the queen's
2:06 am
relations. and in the leadup to it, it really is a case of preparation. we're seeing a lot of -- a lot of people in the queue are fortunate to see some of the rehearsals that the servicemen are doing preparing for the funeral on saturday and sunday. and we're having the line continuing until 6:30 monday morning. so at 6:30 monday morning, that is their last chance to see elizabeth lying in state and then the state funeral and then later on after the ceremony in westminster abbey from 11:00 to 12:00, then she goes to windsor and buried with a private ceremony for the family. and she will rejoin her husband prince philip and her father, mother and sister who are all buried in saints fwot. george's. >> and the pageantry that we've been seeing and will see, for some people especially outside the uk, it may seem excessive
2:07 am
and archaic. what purpose does it serve now? >> the pageantry of monarchy that we've seen with charles given a speech, the pageant friday of the beginning of the monarchy and we'll see great pageantry at the coronation, that is really an insight into our constitutional mechanism. we don't have a written constitution and we have the monarch as mutual head of state, but we don't have a written constitution actually saying that. so really the sets of pageantry, all these ceremonies that seem rather archaic, they really are the underpinning of our constitution. they underpin the monarch as mutual head of state. and the pageantry we'll see, what that is particularly a commemoration of the queen's role as head of the armed forces, queen victoria wished to be buried as a soldier's daughter and the role of the armed forces was much increased
2:08 am
during queen victoria's funeral in 1901 and that has continued. so we'll see the great role played by the members of the armed forces and as well as those in service industries and monarchs and heads of state from across the world. the great pageant friday for elizabeth ii's funeral reflects how she is one of a long line of kings and queens and how she did have this great impact on the world stage. 42 times around the world, the most traveled monarch that we've ever had. and in terms of her efforts towards diplomacy, she talked about fldiplomacy and that is wt she always wished for, and great respect that she inspired not just in britain but across the world. and it is on monday going to be a day that we'll never seen again. we'll never see a state funeral like this for a monarch who has been on the throne for 70 years and our last queen in my lifetime. >> absolutely. listen, we really appreciate the historical perspective. kate williams in london, thanks
2:09 am
so much. and coverage of the queen's funeral begins on monday right here on cnn, 6:00 a.m. in new york, 11:00 in the morning in london. some republican governors in the u.s. are vowing to send more migrants from states at the southern border to northern cities run by democrats. florida governor ron desantis flew dozens of migrants to massachusetts on thursday apparently without notifying officials there. migrants have since been taken to a military base for shelter and humanitarian support. the flights took off from san antonio, texas, stopped to refuel before continuing on to massachusetts. similar to the move started by the texas republican governor who has sent thousands of my grant by bus to northern cities.
2:10 am
>> reporter: while residents of martha's vineyard cared for the group of venezuelans sent to the island on chartered planes courtesy of ron desantis, a group of venezuelan and latino activists gathered in miami to lash out. >> he has to stop. we demand him to stop using our pain, our suffering and our desperation for his political gains. >> this is a political stunt that is the lowest common denominator of human decency. >> reporter: this son of cuban exiles and former state representative from miami says at this point it is not clear yet if desantis has angered the reliably republican base of cubans and venezuelans in florida. >> from what i've heard, they haven't mentioned it, which is probably the fact that they don't know how to deal with it.
2:11 am
so there probably will be a negative side to this. this may be the step too far. >> reporter: governor desantis vows to keep as many migrants out of florida as possible through his relocation program. >> i got 12 million for us to use and so we are going to use it and you are going to see more and more, but i'm going to make sure that we exhaust all those funds. >> reporter: florida is home to the largest populations of cuban and venezuelan immigrants fleeing social dictatorships, but there are deep divisions in the communities. >> there are venezuelans who are hardcore trump supporters. and basically these are folks that believe that there should be a hard line on everything. >> reporter: for several months, texas governor greg abbott has put more than 11,000 migrants on some 250 buses with some going to cities with democratic leaders like washington, d.c., chicago and new york. texas division of emergency management figures show it has
2:12 am
cost the state more than $12 million. abbott has repeatedly appeared on fox news to showcase the busing program. >> most of america has not really understood the magnitude of the problem that we have on the border until we started sending these buses up to new york. >> for any politician that uses this issue in the way these two gentlemen have, it is the worst kind of cynicism is that we have in politics today. >> reporter: and this former democratic state representative from the texas border town of eagle pass, his home overlooks the rio grand into mexico. he says if there is a political price to pay for these political stunts, abbott and desantis haven't experienced it yet. >> a lot of people who criticize abbott and desantis and say what they are doing is inhumane and not right. but do you think for the average voter out there it matters? >> i think it may not. >> reporter: a university of texas and texas politics project
2:13 am
poll this week found that abbott's busing of migrants has about 52% of support among texas voters includeing 50% support among independents. >> the response they got which is what they wanted. what are you doing, why are you sending them here. that is what they wanted. >> reporter: and governors of texas and florida say they will continue to do more of the same. ed lavendera, cnn, there is. catherine cole is executive director of granny's respond, an organization that had vow indicates for asylum seekers crossing the southern border and she is joining me from british columbia. thanks so much for being here with us. so as someone who has been dealing with migrants who have been essentially dumped in cities like new york and d.c., i just wanted to start with your reaction to this latest stunt by florida's governor. >> i think it is cruel. it is heartbreaking for these
2:14 am
people because unless there are people on the ground like grannies respond and tlc, these people would just be wandering around the city not knowing what do. or where to go or how to eat. so it is cruel if you are going to send them somewhere, you know, give them the means. sort out the means before you just dump them. >> your group was one of the first that rallied into action to help when this first started happening. but take me back to the beginning of the group. why is a group of grannies getting involved in immigration issues? >> because during the summer of '19, a friend of mine had the idea to just put a bunch of grannies on a bus and go down there because a lot of friends were upset about the separation of families at the border. and all of a sudden, we had a caravan of 30 people from the
2:15 am
beacon, new york area, new york city, and we wound up as 200 people at the border. and we got familiar with all the volunteer and ngos at the border, immigration attorneys, everyone involved. and out of that came the awareness that there was a great need for these people traveling from the border to wherever their sponsors or families were to replenish diapers, formula, everything. >> so those are people who came across, but now tell me about that first bus load of migrantses that was actually sent to new york. it sounds like your group was pretty much on your own as that bus load was arriving. >> that's right. and fortunately we had one of our volunteers that day also on my board of directors and she is a retired nurse and she happened to spot a young girl 12 years old who looked not quite right. found out that she hasn't had
2:16 am
her insulin for four days and could have died and she got her immediately to the hospital. saved her life. so you know, you have situations like this. medicines are taken at the border it from people as are their papers, documents, so they are only given their asylum paper and that is it. >> so the migrants when they arrive, i mean, they must have been disoriented to say the least. and we saw in martha's vineyard it sounds as though they were misled and lied to. so what state are they in when they arrive and do they have any idea what is going on? >> some do, some don't. my lead in new york city, team tlc, tells me that some of the buses, the people come off looking pretty together and pretty oriented to what is going on. and some buses, they look disheveled and very tired, extremely hungry. so it really depends on who is sending them up from where.
2:17 am
it is a mixed bag. some of them intends to come to new york, some do not because their hearings are scheduled in different states far away. we've had to reticket a lot of people and we only operate on funding. >> and the governors are making this argument maybe not sincerely, but they would say, well, maybe they are better off in these big democratic cities where they get plenty of support. >> they are not getting plenty of support from the cities. that is a fallacy. the cities are not prepared for this. new york city did some organizing with us, but now they have stepped back and put -- the mayor eye off's office of immig fair, we organize some had things with them but now they have turned it over to the emergency management.some had ts with them but now they have turned it over to the emergency management. we're really the ones doing the work on the ground. it is the nonprofits.
2:18 am
and we've partnered with many other group on the ground to help feed these people. we have a group called rethink food. we've organized with them. they deliver -- and other glifr gr groups as well -- full meals so we can feed them. they haven't eaten. they have been on a bus for 45 hours and they come to us. they have nothing. they need food, they need sanitary items, female products. water, you know, everything they need. they just have nothing. >> it is a huge need and obviously it will continue as these republican governors get plenty of political mileage for these stunts. and they have said certainly that they won't stop. so we wish you and your group all the best as you try to deal with this growing problem. catherine cole, thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. investigations are under way after discovery of a mass burial site in ukraine and ukraine says

to hear how patient most folks have been considering some might not see the queen until tomorrow. what have they been telling you? >> reporter: it is remarkable to see just how many people have shown up, is been waiting overnight for hours and hours. this queue stretches for miles down the river thames, all of these people waiting for their chance to enter the palace of westminster which is just across the river to pass by to pay their respects to the queen who is currently lying in state in westminster hall in the palace of west minister. i have to say it has been quite cold overnight, they have been waiting as you said, the queue near or at capacity for the last 24 hours. and every so often, it will be stopped, people recommended not to try to travel into this area to join the queue because there are just so many people. and this is of course a large scale security operation. there are several volunteers, about 1,000 at least stewards,

2:36 am
because of course we're ushering in a new royal era. king charles iii. and there has been conversation and debate around the monarchy's place in modern britain, this is a very different time to when the queen first descended to the throne. and we're facing various crises at the moment, not least the cost of living cries crises. people who are not traveling to westminster, but outside of the capital we've been speaking to the people about their thought on the monarchy and many say that they think it is time for the royal family to modernize. deeply admired and widely revered, queen elizabeth leaves behind a towering legacy. drawing mourners in the thousands to commemorate her life. >> we just wanted to pay our

leader of one of russia's most important trading partners has openly rebuked vladimir putin over the war in ukraine. during a televised meeting in uzbekistan, narendra modi said now is not the time for war. it is the latest sign that even nations with strong ties to moscow are questioning the invasion. earlier this week putin acknowledged that china's leader also had concerns about the war. ivan watson is joining me with more. so after getting luke warm support from president xi, the meeting with modi didn't go as well as putin might have hoped. is that fair to say? >> reporter: i think so. i think the kremlin was hoping to illustrate that vladimir putin is not as internationally isolated as some of his critics
2:44 am
would argue at this meeting of the shanghai cooperation organization in uzbekistan. but it was clear that he didn't have some of that swagger that we associate with the russian president at this meeting. in fact, when he did sit down with the indian prime minister, he received a lecture of sorts urging him to follow a path towards peace. take a listen. >> translator: it is not an era of war and i have spoken to you many times over the phone on this issue that democracy, diplomacy and dialogue are all the things that make it clear to the world that in the coming days, how can we move on the path of peace. >> reporter: and putin himself addressed that he knew that the indian prime minister had concerns about russia's prosecution of this destructive war in ukraine. and he had to make a similar admission when he sat down face-to-face the previous day with chinese leader xi jinping
2:45 am
saying hey, i know you have questions and concerns about ukraine. and that is all the more striking when you consider that the previous time that putin met face-to-face with xi in beijing in early february before launching this invasion of ukraine, at that time both leaders declared a friendship with no limits. seven months later, you heard no full throated endorsement of the kremlin's military adventure in ukraine from this chinese friend. there is clearly unease about how the war is going. despite this, in his public comments, putin also claimed that his military plan in ukraine would not change despite recent military setbacks for the russian military, that the goal was still toas he put it to capture the eastern donbas region of ukraine and that he insisted that there was slow and
2:46 am
