illegal immigration, while also turning up the heat on democrats. >> the democrat agenda is the agenda of the extreme far left. they've gone crazy, folks. they've gone totally loco. republicans are the party of all americans. >> despite the tough words, democrats aren't shying away from the fight. nbc's kristen welker has the latest on oprah's trip to atlanta. >> you get a vote! and you get a vote! and you get a vote! >> reporter: the o factor. oprah winfrey electrifying voters in georgia for democrat stacey abrams, knocking on doors. >> hi, oprah! >> reporter: hosting a pair of town halls supporting abrams who could become the country's first female african-american governor. >> nobody paid for me to come here. nobody even asked me to come here. i paid for myself, and i approve this message.

[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: do you see her as someone who helps you energize specifically women voters, voters of color? >> i think that oprah energizes everyone. >> reporter: winfrey's visit comes as abrams is locked in a razor-tight race with republican brian kemp. democrats accusing abrams' opponent of using his office,
secretary of state, to purge thousands of minorities from the voting rolls. kemp has vehemently denied any voter suppression. the vice-president stumping for him. >> i'd like to remind stacy and oprah and will ferrell, i'm kind of a big deal, too. >> reporter: oprah usually stays on the political sidelines. endorsing barack obama in 2007 and hillary clinton in 2016. still, oprah didn't miss a chance to take a not so subtle swipe at the trump-era politics of division. >> and i know it's easy for a lot of people to feel that you have no power against those injustices. but this is what i'm here to tell you. this land was made for you and me. [ cheers and applause ] >> this land was made for you and me. that's not just a song. that's the truth. >> reporter: hoping that message will help make history. kristen welker, nbc news, decatur, georgia.
>> president trump's heated immigration rhetoric is now the target of two federal lawsuits. both were filed on behalf of migrants and alleged the trump administration is violating the rights of asylum seekers by aiming to block the caravan from entering the u.s. meanwhile, the department of homeland security released a fact sheet about the caravan overnight, which includes a number of alarming claims. citing mexican and guatemala officials nearly 300 people in the caravan have violent criminal records including known gang membership. a claim president trump seemingly hinted at during his rally in missouri. >> these are tough people. these are not angels. these are not little angels. these are tough people. and when we're not letting them into our country. they're not coming in illegally. [ cheers and applause ] >> nbc's blayne alexander joins us from d.c. with the latest. blayne, immigration certainly looks like the republican's midterm strategy, doesn't it?
>> reporter: melissa, that is certainly what president trump is trying to bring to the forefront. keep in mind, president trump himself is not even on the ballot this election cycle. but yet he's crisscrossing the country, making himself and immigration a central issue. and in recent days, we've seen him announce or at least float the possibilities of making several policy changes. first, he talked yesterday before leaving for that campaign rally, he spoke at the white house and talked about plans to sign an executive order that would essentially make it more difficult for immigrants to seek asylum. saying unless they come to legal ports of entry at the border, they would be turned away and denied asylum. now, that's one thing he says he plans to sign next week. the other, of course, he's been talking about is revoking birthright citizenship. it is something that he doubled down on during that rally last night. take a look. >> democrats want to continue giving automatic birthright citizenship to every child born to an illegal alien, even if
they've been on our soil for a mere matter of seconds. because of this crazy, lunatic policy that we can end -- that we can end. >> reporter: now, keep in mind that is something that is protected by the constitution, melissa. so, if the president were to go after that and try and do something to change that right or take away that right, it would likely face a lot of legal challenges ahead. back to you. >> blayne, thank you. >> a texas officer is in critical condition this morning after a four-hour standoff with a sex offender. it started at a dollar general in la grange just west of houston. officers approached a man for failing to register as a sex offender when they tried to arrest him, he resisted, so they tased him. that's when he pulled out a knife, cutting one officer in the hand and fleeing to a nearby hotel. he then barricaded himself inside and shot at police, injuring one. after four hours, the suspect was arrested. >> it has been a horrible week at school bus stops in this country with a series of
tragedies involving children on their way to school. there were two more accidents on thursday, bringing it to four crashes that have left five children dead just this week. here's nbc's kristen dahlgren. >> oh, lord have mercy. >> reporter: terror at a school bus stop in tampa. >> i didn't know which kid to help because there were so many laying on the ground. >> reporter: witnesses say a speeding car slammed into five children and two a sultdults, lg one child in critical condition. the driver now in custody. one at four school bus stops in just days. in central pennsylvania, a 7-year-old killed in a hit and run. the driver never even stopping to help. while in mississippi, this man is now charged with aggravated assault after a 9-year-old was struck and killed. and in indiana, a community is mourning three siblings killed this week crossing the road on their waybus. that driver also facing charges. some 25 million students nationwide ride a school bus, but experts say getting on and off can be the most dangerous
time. especially this time of year, right before morning. so reflective clothing or back packs can help, and teach children to line up away from the driver will stop. a deadly lesson learned the hard way for so many this week. kristen dahlgren, nbc news, new york. >> newly released dashcam footage shows the dramatic moments when milwaukee police rescued a toddler from a burning car. police initially tried to pull the car over for a routine traffic stop last week. but instead, the driver led them on a high-speed chase through a residential neighborhood. the car eventually crashed into a tree, catching on fire, as police caught up to it. officers broke the windows to try to rescue the passengers and that's when they discovered the child. >> there's a baby in there. >> good samaritans helped the officers pull a 2-year-old out of the back. she suffered a broken leg and
bruised lung. the girl's mother who was driving was also rescued. but sadly a third person died. one person has been charged. >> one halloween costume got a thumbs up from a former first lady. we told you about 3-year-old parker curry in march when her awe struck reaction to michelle's portrait in washington went viral. yesterday mrs. obama tweeted, you nailed it, little parker. i love t. >> she sure did. kidney stones didn't stop the world's greatest gymnast simone biles from making history. she won her fourth all around title at the world gym nasa ticks championship in qatar and is the first female gymnast to do so. she did get off to a rough start, though, falling twice on vault and balance beam, but her routines were so difficult that she still had a lead over japan's may morikami. after her win biles apologized to fans on twitter for giving them a heart attack. >> with a kidney stone, by the way. >> yeah, she's so good and.

they look comfortable. >> they sure do. canada has already burned through its supply. the pot shortage does not stem from production issues but a result of slow licensing procedures. quebec closed its government-run shops three days this week and online stores can't fill their orders. the canadian government said 300 people have added to speeds up the licensing and get back to a high supply. >> well, there was a massive walkout across the country and around the world at one of america's most prominent companies. google employees revolting over the treatment of women, including the handling of workplace sexual harassment. we get more now from nbc's jo ling kent. >> reporter: thousands of google employees told their bosses, time's up. >> we demand structural change in the name of transparency, accountability, and equity. >> we're walking out toport women and to protest the way this company has handled sexual harassment. >> reporter: the protests follow a "the new york times" report
