. this is amongst the most powerful of images we've seen so far. this is not a state occasion to the grandchildren, this is saying good-bye to their grandmother. >> at least 50 migrants have now been transferred voluntarily to joint base cape cord. they're going to have access to food, shelter, medical care, legal services. >> we are here today to tell governor desantis that he has to stop using our pain, our suffering and our desperation
for his political gain. >> it's hard to believe that a human being could treat other human beings like this. they're killing women and children in ukraine. >> there is clear evidence of torture, humiliating treatment of people. the world must react to all of this. i'm pamela brown in washington. you are in the cnn newsroom. ♪ >> a kingdom celebrates the life of its queen and a family mourns the loss of its matriarch. the queen's eight grandchildren came together to hold vigil as she lies in state outside westminster hall. tens of thousands of mourners wait to pay their respects.
as you can see, the line stretches for miles. the wait at times has surpassed 24 hours. right now the wait is around 17 hours. president biden and the first lady arrived in london last hour. they will be among the heads of state from around the world to attend the queen's funeral scheduled for monday. cnn's max foster has more. >> reporter: a steady tide of mourners pouring into the ancient westminster hall. it looks and feels like a pilgrimage. after hours waiting in line, a personal moment of thanks to the queen. >> we love you. >> reporter: king charles iii with his son prince william met them outside to the delight of those waiting. they queued for hours and came from across the united kingdom and the world.
security was tight. there was a phones down rule as well. a royal source told cnn it was so people can enjoy the moment with their new king. >> shake hands, enjoy it, make the most of it. >> reporter: the queen's youngest son prince edward also approached the crowds alongside his wife the countess of wessex. >> it's the right thing to do. i lots of different nations here. it's just lovely. >> it's a good day. everyone's being really positive. >> reporter: the king also made time to thank emergency responders ahead of the state funeral, which police say will be their largest ever operation. global leaders continue to descend on london for the big monday event, paying tributes and signing condolences at
lancaster house. >> she was our queen for almost half of our country's existence. >> reporter: they also lined up in westminster hall, paying their respects, some even sharing a meal with the king and other royals at buckingham palace. and then a somber vigil for the queen from her grandchildren that she helped bring up. prince william and harry both in ceremonial uniform. harry under special dispensation by the king, adorned with medals presented by the queen to mark her many jubilees and also his military service. the brothers bowed their heads at opposite sides of the coffin. their cousins stood firm, facing the crowds. a show of unity for the nation in mourning. in the words of princesses, a
loss of a beloved queen and a beloved grandmother. max foster, cnn, westminster, london. >> let's continue this conversation. cnn's richard quest is in london at westminster bridge. richard, people have waited a dozen hours or more, some nearly double that, and during that time could rarely sit down because the line keeps moving. as americans, we are astonished by that public devotion. tell us more. what are people saying there who have been waiting in line all these hours about why it's so important to pay their respects? >> reporter: it's both very simple to explain, gratitude, respect, dignity, and very difficult to explain. because unless you were born with it, you don't really get it.
the analogy i'll give you that's only just occurred to me, when you talk about the american dream and what the american dream is and what it means, this is something innate that americans are brought up with from the get-go. the american dream, anyone can do it, anyone can make it. a foreigner like myself who's lived in the states many years off and on, i can academically understand the american dream, but i can never internalize it in quite the same way that we would now say about the monarchy, the queen, the whole royal family. we were brought up with it. we have been i suppose people would say inculcated with it. i wouldn't say that. it's a constitutional monarchy. the short answer is that it's just the way it's done. we love a good queue. we love making small talk. we'll chitchat about rubbish to our neighbors and we'll all be in it together, the dunkirk
spirit. that's what it's about. >> i bet there are a lot of new best friends after waiting in line for that long with total strangers. by the end of it, you imagine they have become good friends. i want to talk about the fact that king charles and prince william greeted people standing in line. how significant was that? >> reporter: i think it's incredibly important, because what's happening is they're making it up as they go along. obviously as the day went on, charles was meeting diplomats, heads of state, heads of government, commonwealth le leaders. but they are responding to what they see as the enormous outpouring of affection for their mother. so yes, i think king charles throughout the week has been to northern ireland, wales, scotland. he's obviously in england. and this is a bonding ceremony. this is a bonding time between
monarch and sovereign and subject and citizen. that's what's happening at the moment. tonight it's going to be 53 degrees in london, 53 fahrenheit. i think one of the key points is that they're going to have to stop the line, because the lying in state comes to an end at 6:30 on monday morning. now you've got to work backwards. so the line is 17 hours. you've got to work out 17 hours back from 6:30 monday. they're going to have to say to people, i'm sorry, you can't line the join because if you do, there won't be time for you to get through. >> now's the time to hop in that queue, as you put it. richard quest, thank you. migrants flowed to martha's vineyard who claim they were misled. florida's governor vowing to
send more and new york's mayor saying his city is nearing a breaking point. 50 migrants were flown to martha's vineyard this week from texas unannounced. florida's governor, whose budget paid for those flights, said more will be coming to northern cities. >> the legislature gave me $12 million. we're going to spend every penny of that to make sure that we're protecting the people of the state of florida. these are just the beginning efforts. we've got an infrastructure in place now. there's going to be a lot more that's happening. >> athena jones is following the developments. there are concerns in new york as well. tell us about that. >> reporter: well, that's because there's been an unprecedented influx of these new arrivals in the last several weeks. we're talking about nearly 12,000. 8500 of which are being housed in the city's shelters. of course, new york is already struggling to deal with people who ordinarily need shelter that didn't come from outside of new
york city. the mayor has said in recent days that the city is nearing a breaking point. they are now considering every option. among those options is temporarily housing migrants on cruise ships. this is not a final decision that's been made yet, but it's something the city is looking into. because they can't stand up shelters to house folks overnight. the mayor telling wcbs in an exclusive that they are expecting to add 38 more emergency shelters to the 23 emergency shelters that the city has already stood up to help migrants. they're also being offered a variety of services through a welcome center. you see there several numbers. these are by no means comprehensive but thousands of migrants having been sent from texas to washington, d.c., new york and chicago. arizona you see a little bit under 2,000 to washington, d.c. then you have 50 that were sent from texas to martha's vineyard. those migrants have now been all
voluntarily transferred to a joint base cape cod. that's being used as an emergency shelter. they're also being give wraparound services, food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, mental health and crisis counselling and the like. but the civil rights attorneys who were working with the folks there in martha's vineyard as they were getting ready to move over to cape cod, one of their main concerns was the lack of coordination, the fact that these migrants showed up there without prior notice. listen to more of what one attorney had to say. >> they were lied to again and again and fraudulently induced to board the planes. they were told there was a surprise present for them and that there would be jobs and housing waiting for them when they arrived. this was obviously a sadistic lie. not only did those responsible for this stunt know there was no
housing and no employment awaiting the migrants, they also very intentionally chose not to call ahead. >> that lawyer also said that some of the migrants they spoke with were due in court. they were meant to make appearances in immigration proceedings as soon as monday, but in towns and cities thousands of miles away from where they are now in massachusetts, so as far away as tacoma, washington, or san antonio, texas, where these flights originated. the lack of coordination is one of the reasons you're seeing officials slamming these moves by red state governors calling them cruel and inhumane and political ploys. this is a potent political issue for these governors, because republican voters in surveys, immigration is one overf their issues.
>> governor ron desantis is saying this is just the beginning. we're going to be tracking this for a while, it seems. thank you so much. crews battling wildfires in california have a new concern, windsle tha that could gust up miles per hour. the mosquito fire in northern california has scorched 72,000 acres since igniting a week ago. firefighters are hoping rain from an upcoming storm will help slow the fire. >> reporter: these are such strong winds they can spread the flames and pick up embers and spread them, creating spot fires. that creates even more work for firefighters that are already trying to get a handle on this fire. we talked to the cnn weather team. what they said was that at the
moment we're seeing 10 to 15 miles an hour for the wind. but at sunset it can get to 25 and 35 miles an hour. that's when it gets concerning. that's when it could guess dangerous even for those firefighters because of the wind and how it can change very quickly. unfortunately, this fire has already destroyed more than 71,000 acres and there is still work to be done because it's only 21% contained. they do expect progress over the next couple of days because of that rain. after we get the wind, we are expecting the rain sunday into monday. that could be extremely beneficial for those firefighters. there are assessment teams also out there trying to figure out exactly how many structures have been destroyed because of this fire. we do not have an updated number, but we know crews are out there working around the clock, doing everything they can. some of these evacuation orders are being lifted, so authorities
are asking people to pay attention to the orders, because you may be allowed back into your home as we get that rain. overall, the rain is very beneficial for the fire season, because experts say that it can slow down this ongoing fire season. it's not going to stop it completely, but it will bring some relief. it won't stop it because even in the next couple of days we're expecting temperatures again to increase. california in general is very dry because of that drought. it's not completely out of the woods, but it is helpful. we have a lot more to cover for you tonight on cnn newsroom, including new details about what russian troops are doing in ukraine right now. i sit down with the ranking republican of the senate foreign relations committee. what senator james rich says about putin's war. plus, as the nation gets closer to the midterm elections, there is a new push to encourage

investigators will go to the sites as soon as possible. a u.n. source tells cnn that war crimes investigators may follow later. ukraine says some of the bodies recovered show signs of torture there as well. western defense officials and analysts announced today they believe russian forces in ukraine are setting up a new defensive line in the northeast. cnn's ben wedeman has the details. >> reporter: pam, ukrainian forces continue to gain more ground in the kharkiv region, although it must be said at a slower pace than in the last two weeks. now, russian forces are trying to dig new defensive lines in the areas they still control. the governor of the kharkiv region says his priority at the moment is to reestablish basic services, things like water, electricity and heating in the newly liberated zones. efforts continue to exhume more bodies in the mass burial site.
ukrainian officials are slowing journalists what they say were russian prisons, complete with torture rooms. this area continues to come under russian bombardments. early saturday morning here in the city of kharkiv, russian missiles slammed into an industrial site outside the city and in a nearby town a russian artillery barrage, according to ukrainian officials, killed an 11-year-old girl. >> we were just telling you about the torture going on in ukraine. as russia's war on ukraine approaches the seventh month there's growing concern about what president putin is capable of in the face of defeat. i sad dowt down with jim rich, top republican on the foreign relations committee. here's what he said.
>> putin made a horrible mistake when he started this. i don't know who he's getting advice from, but i think somebody told him this would split nato. it is not split. >> you have to wonder, does putin realize how much ground he's already lost in this war that has been retaken by the ukrainians? >> putin has lost this war. when i say that, i say that his objective was to march in, occupy the country, set up a puppet government and have ukraine be a lot like belarus or just a thinly disguised state of russia. that's over. it hasn't happened. i can tell you after talking with these people, they will fight in the streets with broom sticks if they have to. the russians will never, ever occupy that country. >> how do you see, though, this illegal invasion by russia? >> we've got history to look
back on. there's been a few wars over history, probably thousands of them. they end when one or both parties fight to the point of exhaustion. then they sit down and talk and get a resolution. that's probably what happens here. i have to tell you, though, that neither side is even close to that point. the ukrainians are not giving up. putin has not weakened their resolve. he has very much steeled their resolve. there's a long ways to go. i think it's going to be russia that's going to have to make decisions as to how far they want to go. they've had 100,000 casualties. another great loss for putin was the great myth that was out there around the world, was the might of the russian military. i mean, it's been stripped bare.
their prowess on the battlefield has just been stripped naked. it's not there. here they are, quote, a super power, i guess only because they have nuclear weapons, fighting a cou country, 125 million people fighting with sticks and stones. the russians are losing. you got to remember these things wax and wane. putin will respond. i'll you what. his conscience is an amazing thing. i said all along that at some point in time in the not too distant future he's going to be playing checkers with adolph hitler in a very different place. it's hard to believe that a human being could treat other human beings like this. he's stolen these young men in his country into the meat grinder every day and they're killing women and children in ukraine. like you say, what makes him
think the way he does? this is what happens when you have an autocrat and one that's been in a power for a long, long time and has absolute power. he can do this. >> do you have that concern still that putin could just say, you know what, i'm losing so bad that i'm just gonna -- >> you said still. i never had it in the first place and i don't have it now. he knows what the situation is there. you know, the use of a nuclear weapon would change dramatically the world in very short order. there's two things i'm convinced he's not going to do. one is use a nuclear weapon. the other is to attack a nato country. he's been very careful not to do that. those are a couple of really smart moves on his part. >> and coming up, i talk to senator rich about what it might take to bring americans britney griner and paul whelan home from russia. and you're in the cnn
newsroom. long lines in london still at this late hour there as mourners pay their respects to queen elizabeth ii, including today her grandchildren. what do these moments signal about the future of the monarchy? we'll discuss, next. but, at upwork, we found her. she's in prague bebetween the ideal cup of coffee and a truly impressive synthesizezer collection. and you can find her right now (lepsi?) on upwork.com (lepsi.) when the world is your workforce, finding the perfect project manager, designer, developer, or whomever you may need... tends to fall right into place. find top-rated talent who can start today on upwork.com listen, i'm done settling. because this is my secret. i put it on once, no more touch ups! secret had ph balancing minerals; anit helps eliminate odor, instead of just masking it. so pull it in close. cret works. get ready - our most popular battery is even more powerful.

westminster hall. the lines have stretched for miles. at one point the wait grew to a jaw dropping 24 hours. sally bedell smith is with us. she's the author of the book "elizabeth the queen." sally, you expected there to be very long lines. did you expect the sheer scale of this outpouring of love, though? >> well, it is hard to get your head around. i thought from the very beginning that this would be sort of an emotional earthquake and that so many people would be drawn to london to say good-bye to her. you know, she was the object of not only massive admiration, but love. you could see those expressions of love in what people were saying along the queue, the fact that they were willing to endure
last night very cold temperatures to persist. it wasn't enough for people to see it on television. they wanted to experience it. they wanted to be in that majestic hall. they wanted to just bow, courtesy or genuflect or whatever way they wanted to pay tribute to her. i mean, it's the most extraordinary outpouring of affection and admiration, i think, that we have ever seen and may never see again. i mean, i knew it was going to be big. i think also it's quite mesmerizing to watch the live feed of the queues and how well behaved everybody is. it's sort of a cliche that the british are so good at walking along in queues and being patient. the queen was a very patient
person. she was a very tolerant person. she was modest and humble. there's a lot of pageantry and panoply surrounding all this lying in state and certainly the funeral on monday. but i think we're reminded by there's a sort of modesty and humility in the people who are coming to honor her. you had somebody like david beckham. he could have sneaked in the line at any moment, but he waited for 12 hours. i think it was sincere. i don't think it was a publicity stunt. i heard some member of parliament said you can come and take a place with me. there were so many people from all walks of life, from all over the world. a woman from peru was interviewed the other day. they're just afrom everywhere, all ages. it's incredibly moving to see how deep the affection is for
this woman. obviously she was appreciated in her lifetime. to think the platinum jubilee was only three months ago and we had all these crowds in a much different mood. you know, she's somebody who saw huge crowds for her entire life. there was a moment right after her coronation when she and prince phillip were in australia. prince phillip wrote a letter to her mother and said, the adulation is just overwhelming. then the queen mother wrote back and said, how humble making it is to know that you are the vehicle through which love of country is expressed. that sort of gets to the nub of what the queen was. she knew that people admired her
personally, but she also knew what she represented. >> yeah. well said. sally bedell smith, thank you so much. >> you're welcome. >> cnn will have live coverage of the state funeral of queen elizabeth ii beginning monday at 5:00 a.m. you are in the cnn newsroom on this saturday. the nonprofit carter center is out with their five principles for supporting democratic elections. found out which secretary of state candidates have signed onto this. up next, we're also going to talk to the center's ceo about that effort as an alarming number of republican politicians still lie about the 2020 election. ed car vending machines and buying a car 100 percent online now we've created a brand new way for you to sell your car whetether it's a year old, or a few years old we want to buy your carr so go to carvana enter your license plate answer a few questions and our techno wizardry calculates your car's value and gives you a real offer in seconds

year. a new cnn analysis found more than half of republican senate nominees have raised doubts or rejected the election's legitimacy. by sewing distrust in our elections, these very candidates may actually be making them less secure. take a listen to this warning from a nation's top election security official this week less than two months before the midterms. >> we are facing a workforce problem as these stories of the threats and intimidation are shared, people who would normally be poll workers on election day or work at a voting center or maybe work at a ball lballot processing center are taking that step back and saying, i don't know that it's worth my life. >> what can be done to bring down the temperature? my next guest is fighting to do just that. paige alexander is the ceo of the carter center in atlanta. this week it launched a bipartisan initiative to help
restore trust in our democracy. hi, paige. thanks for coming on. so first off, just tell us about this initiative and why it is so important. >> sure. thanks, pamela. well, the candidate principles were trusted election initiative is a cross partisan effort to really encourage candidates, political parties and voters to uphold five core doctrines of democratic elections. integrity, nonviolence, security, oversight and a peaceful transfer of power. so while it's an initiative of the carter center, it's backed by more than 50 organizations and institutions all across the political spectrum. they are essentially basic principles that encourage support for civility and fairness in our election process. they truly represent a minimum standard of behavior that americans expect to see from candidates seeking elected office, which are supported by people across the political
spectrum. >> we know that hmore than half of senate candidates that are republican have at least raised doubts about the legitimacy of our elections. another analysis found it likely that election deniers will become a majority in the house next year. what are some of your concerns? >> our government's legitimacy really relies on the consent of the governed. these efforts to sew discord around the elections, even poll workers have become victims of violence and intimidation. this isn't how elections are supposed to work, especially in the nation that invented modern democracy. it's a concern. we're trying to find ways to do this through a bipartisan and nonpartisan effort to allow
americans to have a voice. >> in atlanta's fulton county, where the carter center is located, leaders have apparently been un able to find qualified candidates to take over after the elections officer resigned. >> i also want to read a statement about a video that i'm sure some of you have seen circulating. the worker has been accused of discarding a ballot. he was merely discarding a list of instructions that had been put into one of the envelopes. it was taken and uploaded to a twitter. he is currently in hiding, because he's had threats. he's had to shut down all of his social media and all of his personal information was released. >> i mean, is this where we're heading now? how do you convince someone to
work on an elections board when you see that? >> i mean, these dynamics have the potential to undermine the very foundation of our government. now more than ever we really need good people to run elections, not those who are politically susceptible to disinformation. in fulton county alone, we have a hiring target of 2,000 poll workers. in dekalb county, our second largest county, a hiring goal of 700 workers. it's a concern that multiple states have reported shortages of poll workers and retention issues affect not just election day poll workers but the longer term technical staff that keep elections going. these people are truly critical to the security of our elections. >> i want to ask you, democratic operatives have been under fire this election season after deciding to help prop up some of the more anti-democratic and extremist candidates with the idea that they will be easier to defeat in november.
does it concern you to see that sort of tactic being used by the side that claims to be concerned about protecting democracy? >> the sintegrity of our elections is the ultimate goal. politics are politics. that's not an area -- i think the support should be done for the candidates that we want to lead us and not against those that we don't. >> paige alexander, thank s for coming on. >> thank you. you are in the cnn newsroom on this saturday night, 52 days away from midterm election night. a surprise appearance for georgia governor candidate stacey abrams highlights just how key that state will be, next. ♪ does it get better than not parallel parking yourself? ♪ alexa ask smartfeed to feed the dog. does it get better than feedining your dog from 50 miles away? yes... it does. at buick we see a future that's even better.
