this is the "cbs overnight news." >> welcome to the "overnight news." i'm tanya rivero. thousands of general motors workers will have little reason to celebrate this holiday season. the automaker announced it is eliminating about 15,000 jobs and closing production plants throughout the midwest. president trump says he's not happy with the restructuring, but gm says sales are down and it's already lost about a billion dollars from president trump's tariffs. kris van cleave reports. >> reporter: at the white house today, president trump said he called general motors head mary barra to express his displeasure over gm's plan to shutter five north american plants. >> i spoke with her when i heard they were closing.
i said, you know, this country has done a lot for general motors you. better get back in there soon. >> reporter: facing slumping sales, general motors will stop making six underperforming said dance by the end of next year, idling plants in michigan, maryland, and ontario, canada, costing nearly 6,000 factory employees and 8,000 salaried workers their jobs. more than 300 could be laid off from this gm plant in white marsh, maryland. josiah fowler got his job through his grandfather, who worked at the plant for 50 years. >> the bad thing is to get this news on the day after we come back from thanksgiving. so being with our family and our friends, and then come back to work or wake up in the morning and hear this news. it's not easy for everybody. >> the cuts are the largest since gm was build a out by taxpayers during 2008 financial crisis. they come as steel tariffs administration have cost the automaker a billion dollars. the marketplace is also changing. >> more and more people are buying these taller crossover suvs. so general motors needs to make some drastic shifts to its
product lineup to make sure it's well prepared to sell the cars that people want the buy. >> reporter: the layoffs are a blow to president trump, who promised this during a 2017 visit to ohio. >> i said those jobs have left ohio. they're all coming back. they're all coming back. don't move. don't sell your house. >> reporter: democrat tim ryan represents an ohio congressional district, home to one of the closing plants. >> they got a bailout from the american taxpayer and then they screw americans a few years later. they get a huge tax cut. their profits are through the roof. >> reporter: wall street at least seemed to like the news. gm stock closed up nearly 5% today. the company still has to come to an agreement with the united auto workers union before it can close any plants. the uaw is pledging to fight. tens of thousands of thanksgiving travelers are still trying to get home after blizzard conditions grounded planes and m
all that foul weather is now moving east. dean reynolds has the story. >> reporter: a driving snowstorm in exactly the wrong spot at precisely the wrong time put the brakes on weekend travel. chicago's o'hare international airport was in the middle of a post thanksgiving heartburn that left thousands waiting in vain for a way out of the whiteout. >> it's more than frustrating, actually. >> reporter: tracy falco tried and failed to reach florida. >> it's over an hour wait just to try to rebook your flight. >> reporter: stories of the ditched, dented and demoralized in the midwest were a good primer for what to expect as the storm lumbered east into new york and new england where inooding could become ianotstol in illinois, calls for h >> the flakes were as big as your hand. >> reporter: 45 to 50-mile-an-hour winds made
interstate 80 in iowa next to impassible, while the force of those winds was vividly apparent on lake michigan. and remember, this is only november. things are still not back to normal here at o'hare, and wind and weather delays are now being reported at airports at newark, boston, and new york city, but a tense calm has descended on the largest border crossing in the hemisphere, the one that links tijuana, mexico, to san diego. over the weekend about a thousand frustrated migrants tried to storme esere forced back with tear gas and rubber bullets. some of those migrants now say they are giving up and just want to go home. mireya villarreal has the latest. >> reporter: in a matter of minutes, the trickling stream inside the banks of the tijuana river turned into an overflow of
migrants rushing towards the border. on the u.s. side tear gas and rubber bullets were fired by u.s. border patrol agents after they say a group threw projectiles at them. 59 migrants were arrested. estela from honduras says she was shocked to see the response at the border. so it's a day later, and the crowds are gone from the border, but the border patrol agents, they are still here, about a half a mile down from me. also, this concertina wire is all new. and agents tell us the migrants came with tools, wires and carpet to try and get through this barrier. today president trump refused to waver on his immigration policies. >> here's the bottom line. nobody is coming into our country unless they come in legally. >> reporter: migrant here is in tijuana say they are fleeing violence and poverty. today mexican federal police stand ready to use force to keep migrants away as nearly 6,000 of them sit and wait at a shelter..
three from honduras arrived at the shelter two weeks ago. she says theca her country. people in mississippi go to the polls today in a runoff election for the u.s. senate. the incumbent republican, cindy hyde-smith, is expected to defeat her democratic opponent, mike espy. this despite her statement about wanting a front row seat to a hanging, among other things. ed o'keefe reports. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: president trump threw his weight behind republican senator cindy hyde-smith today in tupelo, hoping to add to the republican majority in the senate. >> cindy is so important, so respected. we got to send her back. >> reporter: but hyde-smith is under fire for racially charged comments recently caught on cam race, your comments offended a great many people. >> we already have. >> no, you haven't. >> reporter: video from earlier
long a reporter, joking that if he ever invited her to attend a public hanging, she would sit in the front row. >> for anyone that was offended by my comments, i certainly apologize. >> reporter: a photo also surfaced from 2014 showing hyde-smith wearing a confederate army soldier's hat. race has always been a factor in mississippi politics, but today another reminder of the state's troubled past. two nooses were found on trees at the state capitol in jackson, hung by critics of senator hyde-smith. the democrat in the race, mike espy focused not on the noose, but on hyde-smith's words. >> they were harmful and hurtful, and they were -- they were -- they were hurtful to the millions of people of mississippi of goodwill. >> reporter: mississippi voter says the controversy around hyde-smith's comments is on their mind. >> cindy hyde-smith, though, i find to be objectionable and a relic of the old bad south. >> this political stuff is getting ridiculous. i know what she said.
the more you move, the more it works. degree®, it won't let you down. the more you move, the more it works. know what turns me on? my better half, hors d oeuvres and bubbly. and when i really want to take it up a notch we use k-y yours & mine. tingling for me, warming for him. wow! this holiday season get what you want take prilosec otc and take control of heartburn. so you don't have to stash antacids here... here... or here. kick your antacid habit with prilosec otc. one pill a day, 24 hours, zero heartburn.
this is the "cbs overnight news." >> president trump is threatening to close down the entire southern border of the united states to battle what he calls an invasion of central american migrants. like many of his orders on immigration, that promise will likely face a challenge in federal court, just like the one ordering the separation of children from their migrant parents, which mr. trump had to quickly withdraw. how was that supposed to work? scott pelley has the details for "60 minutes." >> reporter: this is a department of homeland security arrest warrant issued during the child separations last spring. the target of the arrest is a
3-year-old named emers. tell me about the moment that emers was taken away from you. >> translator: his father ever told us i never thought they would separate him from me, but an immigration agent said you're going to be separated. your son is going to be taken away, and then a judge will decide what will be done with you. emers and his father crossed the border illegally, but presented themselves to the border patrol and requested asylum. the father says he was shot in the back in honduras, a country at war with gangs and drug cartels. as asylum applicants, they're permitted by law to stay until their hearing, usually in two or three months. before, most asylum seekers were released at that point, but under the trump administration, they were arrested and charged with a crime.
because children can't be incarcerated, emers was sent to a foster family in michigan. >> you're going to separate families in the pursuit of an immigration policy, it was irresponsible to push that on top of a system that wasn't prepared on the back end to allow the families to be reconciled later. >> reporter: scott shuchart was surprised by the new policy, even though he worked at homeland security headquarters at the office of civil rights and civil liberties. he told us the order was so abrupt, it bypassed the usual review. if they had come to you, what would your office have said? >> we would have had advice on the way that needed to be done, on the record keeping that needed to be done, and our advice on that wasn't sought out, and when we tried to provide it, it was ignored. >> reporter: what do you mean by recordkeeping? >> making sure we knew where everybody was at all times so they could be put into contact and reunited later. people were removed to other countries without their being good records of what adult went
with what child. >> reporter: that's what we found in this homeland security internal investigation. it says one border station made no effort to identify and reunite families prior to their removal from the united states. the dhs inspector general says the agency was not fully prepared and struggled to provide accurate, complete, reliable data on family separations. the report found that incompatible computer systems erased data that connected children with their families. >> i don't know what part of your soul has to be missing to say we'll take an infant from its mother with no provision about how they will ever get back together again. they might never see each other again? >> reporter: cecilia munoz handled immigration in the obama administration as the director of the domestic policy council. she says even though apprehensions at the boarder have been trending down for a decade, many administrations
struggle with the patchwork of u.s. laws that require border security and protection of asylum seekers. you know better than most that there are people watching this interview who are saying they shouldn't have come. >> we have a broken immigration system. i've been working on this, in this policy area for 30 years. i'll be the first to say we have a broken immigration system. the question is what we do about that. and we lack the political will to fix it. and we will continue to create crises, crises of our own making until we fix it. and that's on us. we live in a democracy. we all know -- no matter how you feel about immigrants, including the people who don't like immigrants, we all agree this thing is broken. >> reporter: when the trump administration made the decision to separate children from families, what responsibilities did they take on, in your estimation? >> they issued an order without consulting with the agencies who were responsible for carrying out that order. we take better care of people's
effects when we send them to jail than we took care of the children we took from their parents. and that's because these decisions were clearly made at the top and pushed down to the agencies without thinking through the ramifications, and without thinking through the potential harm. >> i was having trouble sleeping at night. >> reporter: psychiatrist dr. pam mcpherson and internist dr. scott allen were also caught offguard. they too worked for homeland security inspecting government detention facilities. they were already concerned about the poor quality of health care for a limited number of children in custody before the new order. >> there was an episode where children in a mass immunization program were immunized with the wrong dose, adult dose instead of child dose because the providers at the facility weren't used to working with children and didn't recognize a very common color coding that would denote adult versus pediatric vaccines. >> reporter: they have been writing reports of poor
pediatric care in federal custody for four years. when they heard that thousands more children were going to be cared for by the government, some of them in tent cities. >> this is what caused us great concern with the disclosures that this policy was going to be ramped up and rapidly expanded. well understood that that action would create an imminent threat to the harm and safety of children. >> reporter: dr. mcpherson, what were your concerns in the mental health field? >> i had concerns about the trauma that the children could experience, about the cumulative traumatic stress that could lead children to have delays in developmental milestones, difficulties with their memory or thinking later, difficulties forming relationships and regulating their emotions. >> reporter: 3-year-old emers, the boy with the arrest warrant, was placed by the government with a foster family in michigan for 73 days.
this was his reunion with his mother. she is saying "i'm your mother, hon honey." "what is wrong with my son?" in an interview, gladys told us it felt like he wasn't my son anymore. it felt like a nightmare, like i was dead. she says since detention, emers has been withdrawn and moody, and from that day until today she said it's been very difficult to deal with him. >> when a child looks to their parent for comfort and the parent's not there, the child quits looking for comfort.
once the child detaches, they can have life-long difficulties forming relationships. >> reporter: emers' father told us he was separated from his son without notice. after a court hearing, he went straight to detention, without seeing his son to say goodbye. homeland security's inspector general found parents often did not understand their children would be separated and they would be unable to communicate with their children after separation. >> it became such a horrific scene that they started telling the parents oh, your child is just going to take a shower or just going to get some medical treatment, and then the parent would never see the child again. >> reporter: lee galent is an attorney with tricanivil liberties union. in july, he convinced a federal judge to order the reunification of the children. but when the government realized it lost track of many of the parents, the trump administration told the court reuniting the families was the
aclu's problem. >> the government took these children away from their parents and then deported hundreds and hundreds of the parents without the children. a judge said these parents need to be with their children, and the government said well, if you want to find the parents, we don't know where they are. let the aclu look for them. >> and you can see the full report on
super emma just about sleeps in her cape. but when we realized she was battling sensitive skin. we switched to tide pods free & gentle. it's gentle on her skin and out cleans the other free and clear detergent. dermatologist recommended. it's got to be tide. you ok there, kurt? we're about to move. karate helps... relieve some of the house-buying...
president trump says he doesn't believe a new government report on climate change. it says climate change is already wreaking havoc on the u.s. and will only get worse in the coming decades. the report from 13 federal agencies warns of more destructive western wildfires, longer heatwaves in the southeast, and more powerful atlantic hurricanes. tony dokoupil is at a farm in versaill versailles, indiana which is already struggling. >> reporter: while it might seem a little odd to cover global warming in a heavy coat, but here in the midwest the concern is not just higher temperatures, but a large and costly increase in precipitation. what you're looking at here is a field of ruined soybeans too wet to harvest, and the farmer you're about to meet says he has lost 20 acres this way, all a casualty he says of climate change. >> it's like chewing gum. we're just too wet.
>> reporter: jim bent says he doesn't need a ph.d to know things have changed. >> when we have a rain event we're not getting an inch, we're getting 2 and 3 and 4 inches. >> reporter: too year his soybeans are the 6-year-old farmer says all this rain isn't just bad luck, he believes it's climate change. >> it doesn't take a sign to note you've got a problem. that's what i'm experiencing. >> reporter: and scientists agree. in the fourth national climate assessment issued friday, 13 federal agencies warn climate change will reduce midwest agricultural productivity to levels of the 1980s. andrew light, one of the reporters says evidence humans are causing climate change sun deniable. >> the part of the country that is going to get worse fast southeast actually the midwest, which is the breadbasket of america. >> reporter: the rest of the country doesn't fare much better. a report says sea levels around the u.s. have risen about 9 inches. by 2090, rising seas could cause
$118 billion in property damage every year. ys lonr than they did in the 1960s. by 2090, outdoor workers could lose $160 billion in wages from extreme heat. in 2015, wildfires burn in order than 10 million acres. that's larger than the state of maryland. as recent wildfires like the camp fire have left california devastated, the report warns of hotter, dryer conditions in the west. >> towards the end of the century, you could see the united states economy losing hundreds of billions of dollars every single year and tens of thousands of americans dying every single year because of climate change. this is all avoidable at this point. >> avoidable in theory. president trump has said that man made climate change is a very expensive hoax, and last year he pledged to pull the united states out of the paris climate accords. that's a global agreement to actually do something to slow global warming.
now the authors of this report, a report put out by the trump administration oddly enough s >> dr. stanley: remember this: cannot change the laws of god. when he has visited you in some form of adversity and he brings you through that, that's like he has increased the strength of the foundation of your life and your faith in him.
