3:00 am
can't. i cannot go outside. it hurts me. and it hits me all the time that i miss christina so bad. test. we heard about it. we ran over here. we heard, reran. we're going to make it, dude. we're one of the finals. lebron is the man, dude. he did it. >> right next to the crossing, here are people who are crossing this recover to get from guatemala to mexico. >> i've been coming to this area for years. usually when i'm here the situation is bad. now the situation is very tense, very bad. i truly fear it's about to get a lot worse.
3:01 am
all righty. maybe the coffee isn't even made yet. doesn't matter. just lay there in bed and just rest. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. this is "new day" saturday. who says you cannot go home again. >> i'm trying to figure out what that guy was saying. did anybody else understand anything he said? >> we know he was talking about lebron james headed home after four years with the miami. he's going back to cleveland. >> you know that i love this. i'm a cleveland girl. i love it. >> come on, ohio. >> he will once again wear a cavalier jersey and return to his home state a little older, a little wiser but of course in time for the 2015 season. >> look at the fans that have scorned him. look at them now. he's the hometown hero again.
3:02 am
they lined up to buy lebron jersey, you know, since they burned them before. >> the calves owner, even he slammed lebron as selfish, called him disloyal. that's what he said at a summer game. last night he changed his tune. he said he and king james were ready to move forward again. >> lebron has grown up quite a bit. besides winning championships he's got two kids and a third one on the way. he's a grown man now. i certainly talked about the things i was embarrassed about and apologized that night. he talked about a few things and we got it out of the way real quick. >> rachel nichols has been covering lebron james since his high school days. she take as look back with us. >> even if you don't know what you're going to do, what have
3:03 am
you learned from the last time you switched teams that will inform how you handle things this time? >> you learn from your mistakes. if i'm in that position again i'll be able to handle it better. >> that was lebron james before the free agency circuit that's consumed the nba these past weeks. at the time he told me this decision wouldn't be anything like the decision back in 2010. back then there was the television show that earned the scorn of the nation. >> i'm joining miami heat. >> and broke hearts all over cleveland. >> this is the worst thing that could ever happen to cleveland. >> i hope he never winning anything in nba. >> but four years and two nba titles later, a much more mature lebron stuck to the approach he promised. a 952-word essay published in "sports illustrated."
3:04 am
remember the predictions he made of gaudy titles when he came to miami. >> not two, not three, not four, not five, not five, not seven. >> this time he was much more modest. i'm not promising a championship. wear not ready, no way. he also spoke from the heart noting these past four years helped raise me to who i am. it's a concept he had spoken to me earlier. how even though he was already 25 years old when he joined the heat, it was his first time away from home. >> i lived in my hometown of akron so i was in akron for 25 years. i didn't know how difficult it was to learn new streets, new culture, learn new people, be around different things that i hadn't been around. that was challenging. >> now he says that growing up process is what made he finally
3:05 am
understand his attachment and responsibilities to the place he grew up. cleveland fans haven't celebrated a championship in any major sport in 50 years and his loyalty to them earned praise from many corners, even the white house. >> i think it's a pretty powerful statement about the value of a place that you consider home. >> yes, this time around things are different. back in 2010 cavaliers owner dan gilbert posted a knew infamous public letter to lebron calling his departure a cowardly detail. now he tweeted, my eight-year-old son tweeted can i finally wear any lebron jersey again? yes, it does, son. yes it does. >> oh my things have changed. lebron's announcement on friday, a day of celebration.
3:06 am
fans were lining up on the streets, screaming and shouting, taking their shirts off all singing the praises of lebron james. >> my heart is just pounding right now. it's just a complete dream come true. thank you lebron james. i think you're going to bring us a championship. >> i'm excited for cleveland and the cavs. >> you realize when one place celebrates somebody else may be mourning, in miami specifically, a slightly different tone. fans understand i think why lebron had to go home but they're still going to miss him when he's gone. >> well, no worries. i don't think anybody in miami is going to start burning his jersey. >> four years with lebron, we're very happy. four eastern conferences, four
3:07 am
championships. we're going to be sad to lose him but we got to understand he's got to go home and i respect that. >> no reports of fans in miami burning jerseys. but look at this. some of the heat fans, they're not taking the loss well either. >> no, no. take a look at this. this was what happened as soon as news broke that the king was leaving. someone vandalized this championship mural. that was lebron's face that was painted over. the artist that painted the mural is actually happy that it happened. >> i spent two months in the hot sun painting this. you our idol. you really left us. i didn't do that but i totally agree with whoever did it. >> vashon ali joining us. i'm from cleveland, we fans are passionate people because we've
3:08 am
not always had a winning season, as y'all know. but we're always out there, right? >> cleveland fans. >> but that i think is why there was such a passion when he left and they were so unhappy. so what is the mood -- i mean we saw part of the mood. is that pretty universal? >> the mood is universal. people are very happy that he is back with the home team, the cleveland cavaliers. to say that the city of cleveland was buzzing would be an understatement. the cavaliers sold out of their season tickets in less than eight hours after lebron's announcement. phone lines were so jammed that the team had to redirect lines in the office to be used for ticket sales. the good thing is owner dal gilbert did not increase season ticket sales. phone lines weren't the only things jammed. so were the website selling the "forgiven" t-shirts.
3:09 am
they sold out of their inventory in two hours. the company printed 2500 additional t-shirts last night. now the city of cleveland has not won a title in a major professional sport in 50 years but hopes are high with lebron back and johnny manziel vying for the quarterback position for the browns. the city has some star power they can capitalize on. and to add to an incredible week, it was announced that cleveland will play host to the 2016 republican national convention. it's been one of the best weeks ever for northeast ohio. >> if you had to rank those three, where the gop convention would fall on the list. >> cleveland is a sports town. >> absolutely. >> 50 years you said since a championship and now they've got basketball with lebron james, you've got manziel. would one of these guys be the
3:10 am
ticket, be the key? >> lebron james will win a championship before johnny manziel. they've got the number one pick in wiggins. they're vying to get kevin love. we will see. i think they're closer to a championship than the browns are. >> that's all right. we know it. we just love them any way. >> that's what real fans do. >> we're not fair weather fans in ohio. >> what are you saying about miami fans? >> i'm not saying that either. i don't have experience in miami. i have experience in cleveland. >> so we've talked about lebron and a lot of people are celebrating. we've got to talk about the crisis in the middle east because more than 115 people now, according to officials in gaza, killed there. now hamas militants are warning the airlines don't glie to
3:11 am
israel's main airport. >> more words from the white house to undocumented immigrants who are in limbo here in america.

here those? those are the air raid sirens ringing out in tel-aviv and israel aez people literally run for cover from incoming rockets. >> and this is what it looks like to be across the border in gaza. israeli air strikes have pounded the region. 121 palestinians have been killed and israel says the strikes won't stop until the rockets cease. >> wolf blitzer and his crew had to run for cover. wolf is in gentleman rus lem right now. wolf. >> reporter: i've been coming to this region for many years. usually when i'm here the situation is bad. i'm here usually covering bloody conflicts. though i did have a happy experience in 1994 when i was
3:16 am
cnn's senior white house correspondent. i covered the signing of the israeli jordanian peace treaty. but now the situation is very tense, very bad and i truly fear it's about to get a whole lot worse. israeli attacks and armored vehicles are poised to move into gentleman ga za. there will be many casualties on both sides if that happens. millions of israelis have been living in fear, fear of hearing those afl air raid sirens blast out. i've encountered a few of those experiences over the past couple of days when i drove down south to the border with gaza. but as bad as the situation is on the israeli side, it's a whole lot worse in gaza. that's a small area with more than a million and a half palestinians crowded in. finding a way out f this awful mess won't be easy.
3:17 am
everyone seems to appreciate that. what's so sad is that israeli and palestinian leaders, they've had opportunities over the years. they would have a wonderful coexistence if that long elusive peace process could get off the ground once again and both sides were willing to make the necessary compromises. unfortunately, right now that seems oh so unlikely. wolf blitzer, cnn, gentleman je >> israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says there's one way to stop the fight. >> i know you're in jerusalem. what is the situation like there and at the border with gaza at this point? >> reporter: alluding to the
3:18 am
ceasefire or me likelihood of that. i would say it's extremely unlikely. on the ground it seems the exact opposite to be developing. watch this space. overnight we saw more shelling from the air, from air strikes of gaza by the israelis. we saw more rocket launches from gaza into israel. so as far as the situation on the ground is concerned, it is tense, it is confusing and the reality on the ground, christi and victor, is that people are dying in gaza. it's very, very disturbing picture. for the israeli side no deaths but clearly injuries as well. as far as jerusalem is concerned, things here relatively quiet. it's a functioning city and continues to be so. when you get the sirens, people run for cover. but there's an iron dome shield set up around the city and
3:19 am
certainly the incoming rockets that have reached jerusalem have gotten to open ground or been shot out of the sky by the israelis. here relatively peaceful. but things outside of jerusalem are very frightening. >> let's talk about the warning from hamas to airline to stay away from the main airport there in israel. tell us more about what we know about that and what that implies. >> reporter: yeah. this was some sort of 24-to 36 hours ago and a couple members of cnn staff have come in over the past, what, 12 hours sore so. one member of the staff just telling me before i came to air with you that he came through the airport only a few hours ago and it is a functioning airport. he didn't see any cancellations on the boards. he was aware of that story. and certainly the u.s. airlines that we've contacted are aware of that threat. but say they are continuing to
3:20 am
fly. so we'll keep up today on that story and any for information we'll bring to our viewers. so far as we understand this hour, the airlines are still flying in and out of tel-aviv. >> becky anderson in jerusalem this morning. thanks. let's talk about the border crisis because as that worsens, a obama official goes to the border to worn undocumented women and children we will send you back. a texas man accused of killing members of his family collapses in court as the judge reads capital murder charges against him. you'll see more of this play out. f provokes lust. ♪ it elicits pride... ...incites envy... ♪ ...and unleashes wrath. ♪

3:24 am
humanitarian crisis. but a gridlocked congress, well they are not biting on president obama's request for nearly $4 billion in crisis funding. >> arizona senator john mccain asserted that the republicans will not sign off on the money and that the only way to end the crisis is to close the legal loophole that drew these immigrants north in the first place. >> semistair johnson toured that federal facility and we want to hear more about the -- he's asserting that in these detention centers, they're not humanitarian enough. and for the mothers that some of them come with but but many come by themselves. >> it's a stopgap effort and it's been explained by the obama administration to deal with the flood of people arriving from mexico.

anna cabrera is live. >> reporter: this has been convert into a temporary housing facility for some of the undocumented immigrants. you go inside, i's not what you would expect for a holding facility. it felt more like a college campus when we had a chance to look complete will dorm rooms, bunk beds, desks, television sets. they showed us the bathroom area. private shower areas. they also showed us some of the toys that the children here have access to, your typical bats and balls, hula hoops, stuffed animals. there are more than 400 women and children who have been brought here in texas as they await deportation or an immigration trial. this is a facility that's been established. some 3600 acres is the whole training center and the women and children have free rain but they're monitored very closely
3:26 am
and nobody is allowed to leave until their fate is decided. homeland security jay johnson spoke about that on friday. >> i think it's fair to say that a good number of them were surprised that they were being detained. i think they expected to be apprehended and simply let go into the interior and they're surprised that they're being detained and sent back so quickly. >> reporter: in fact we've learned this center open on june 27th and now secretary johnson says they have the first group that will be deported here next week. now they've established a better position, the goal is to turn the legal cases much more quickly, the goal is two to four days of when they arrive here. of course some cases could take a little bit longer. >> all right. thank you. well the cdc revealed some safety lapses at at atlanta lab

3:33 am
reports of damage of injuries from that attack. >> the israeli military has called on 30,000 reservists to heal. beef up the security. we want to talk about this with retired lieutenant general mark hurdly. how likely is some compromise or ceasefire in. >> i don't think it's likely right now. it's an escalating situation. this occurs ever few years between israel and gaza and hezbollah in the north. the war with the north and the western part of israel is something that occurs on a daily basis. it's just gotten significantly harder right now. >> let's talk about the likelihood of another possibility. we know from the prime minister that these 40,000 troops have been called up and it's a possible that there would be a ground offensive.
3:34 am
what do you think? is it just possible, is it probable or is it almost certain? >> i think it's very possible. it's certainly not certain, victor. i think there's a lot more than the israelis are looking to coordinate and hoping that hamas will stop the rocket launches, the extensive rocket launchers that they've been doing for a long time. if you look at the trend lines, this is occurring all of the time in israel, just been beefd up recently. israel has to deal with this. what wolf death with early, running for cover, that's a daily occurrence in israel. i think from the standpoint of 0 potential attack into gaza, it's very likely. you have to get rid of not only the supplies of rockets and that's estimated tens of thousands of them, but also the means to launch them. >> okay. we're looking a the some of the rocket ranges here, you know, 75 kilometers so we can see, you
3:35 am
know, really how expansive this can get. let's listen, though, to something israel defense forces spokesman said this week about israel's military strategy and we'll talk on the other side mpl we're trying to take out the rocket launching capabilities. we're trying to strike the command and control facilities of hamas. this is a clear design crafted mission. it's not something we're just doing out of a gut reflex. >> let me ask you, general, is this strategy working? >> well, it's not working extremely well, but i think you've seen in the past, christi, that every time israel counters the rocket launchers, there's a period of that where the israeli civilians are living in much more severe condition. you mentioned the rocket ranges as well. this is something that the
3:36 am
military has watch for several years and it's continued to grow with the introduction of other types of missiles that have been sent, smuggled into gaza from syria and iraq. this is something that the israeli military and cabinet faces all of the time. and every once in a while they have to ensure that the security of their people becomes more tangible. and unfortunately that takes destroys the systems that hamas uses. >> let's talk about that, general. you mentioned hezbollah. what's the potential that israel will have to fight in this iteration of the fighting there, both hamas and hezbollah at once? >> i don't think that's very likely, victor, because the rocket launch yesterday was a stray one. i was harassing fire, which is what the northern troops call that on the leb niece border. they deal with it. it's not targeted fire. it's just rockets and in some

3:57 am
pressure for their team, their country, that whole thing. i can't imagine what it's like to prepare for that. we have to ask a professional about that. >> yes. we're joined by someone who knows what it's like to play when the world is watching. the legendary goal keeper gary bailey. >> very expected for tomorrow's game. it's massive pressure. not your normal soccer match. that the sort of stuff you play 60 times a year. you're used to it. this is once every four years, you're representing your count friday. even the seasoned professionals are sitting there thinking tomorrow is a big game. i hope i don't mess up. i hope i don't let the country down. >> how do you psychologically get ready for that? >> it's not easy. there's a number of steps about it. i've got a program that i use when i teach businesses, stuff i've learned from the spot myself having played in cup finals knowing what it's like

3:59 am
>> i'm asking, how do you focus on the noise, not just the noise in the stadium but the noise in life? >> you get used to it. these are the greatest players of the world. they're under the pressure all of the time. they're used to the noise and the situations. what they're not used to is representing their country in a world cup final. it's only once every four years. the majority of these players will not get another chance either because they're two old or the chance of these teams making the next world cup are very small. this is their one chance for their country to become amongst the greatest. >> you talk about your speaking for businesses. what is one tidbit you can give all of us in general in life itself about reaching our goals? >> energy, which i think is so important for business. in sport we always watch what we

eat. we're healthy eaters, training all of time. i don't see that enough in business. it's about being energetic and being able to get through the day. adapting is very important. it's the one thing we saw brazil not do in the semifinals. instead of adapting to the circumstance, they got obliterated. team, we us, not me and i, it's us we. that's what you need. >> gary bailey it has been so fun to have you here. >> one country, germany or argentina. >> everything can happen but you've got to favor germany. they're a great team. as the team, they're the best. >> gary bailey's choice, germany. >> thank you for starting your morning with us. morning with us. >> "new day" starts right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com it's a good day for

cleveland. it's a good day for cleveland fans, lebron, wiggins. not doing anything is frankly not an option because it will require us to simply run out of money. >> they're speaking refuge from organized crime, despicable gangs. >> it's a really unfortunate situation and it definitely casts a shadow on the sex industry. don't even look at the clock. we're going to help you out here. 7:01 is the time. hopefully you can relax, get a little r and r this morning. >> get yourself a drink if you need it. i'm victor blackwell. nad saturday and it is a "new day" in cleveland, ohio. you can stretch that out to ohio, illinois, the entire midwest celebrating because lebron james is coming home,
4:02 am
hanging up the miami heat jersey. once again donning the color of the cavaliers. >> cavs fans were in the mood to celebrate, lining up to buy any kind of lebron jersey they could, especially after they burned them all the last time. as many tickets as they could gap their hands on. season tickets reportedly sold out within hours of lebron's announcement. >> those ticket holders are going to need the new jersey especially after burning them in 2010 when king james announced he would ditch his home state and head to miami in search of an nba hit. martin savage has a look back. >> i hope he never winning anything in miami. >> four years ago cleveland's anger at lebron james spilled out into the streets. after seven seasons as the city's favorite son, it was this announcement now infamously known as the decision that rocked cavaliers fans.
4:03 am
>> i'm going to take my talent to south beach and join the miami heat. a few days later in miami lebron was given a heroes welcome. and had some brash predictions for how many championships he'd help win for miami. the feat he failed to do in cleveland. >> not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven, we believe we can win multiple championships. >> the cavaliers owner perhaps channel lenging the rage of his team's fan base in a strongly worded letter called lebron's move heartless and callous. that betrayal went beyond lebron's time with the team. he was one of them, born and raised in nearby akron. he was so come innocent in high school that "sports illustrated" dubbed him the chosen un. >> he's the best high school basketball player i have ever
4:04 am
seen. >> espn made the unprus dented move of televising his high school basketball game. he skipped college and went straight into the nba and was the first player chosen in the draft. >> the cleveland cavaliers select lebron james. >> and it seemed like fate when we was picked by the cleveland cavaliers. his last four seasons with the miami heat have helped cement his legacy as the dominant player. the heat have reached the finals every year and won two championships. but with the heat's loss in the finals this year and some of his tee teammates past their priems, there were hints that james was eyeing a return to cleveland. in cleveland it was deja vu all over again but this time the chosen one would return. writing in "sports illustrated" in northeast ohio nothing is given, everything is earned. you work for what you have. i'm ready to accept the
4:05 am
challenge. i'm coming home. >> martin savage live with us from cleveland this morning. i mean, four years, there's a huge difference from dan gilbert what he said in that letter that he said, you know, our kids should not want to grow up to be this guy and now he's telling his son, yeah, you can put the jersey back on. >> reporter: what letter? it's like, i don't remember any letter. i don't remember anybody burning jersey. i don't remember any of that. that's all ancient history. i was awakened this morning to this incredibly loud explosion and the rumbling of the earth and it was like lebron just arrived here. it wasn't, it was the demolition of a nearby bridge. but it shows you, it's been quite a remarkable week for the city of cleveland and the return of lebron james.
4:06 am
what many people comment on is the let for of course there could be some debate as to how much of it he wrote himself and many believe that he did. it captured the essence of what many people in this city have always valued about this area. and it's that letter of his that stands out, not the one that was posted four years ago by an angry owner. >> there is definitely forgiveness alive and well in ohio today. >> martin sarchl there for us in cleveland. >> so you know, when we talk about how people are ready to forgive and forget, as he said, it's hard to forget cavaliers' owner dan gilbert, what he said years ago but now he's ready to move forward. let's listen to some of that. >> lebron has grown. quite a bit. he's had the winning championships. he's got two kids and a third one on the way. he's a grown man now. and you know what? i certainly talked about the
4:07 am
things that i was embarrassed about and apologized about that night and he talked about a few things and we got it out of the way pretty quick. >> all right. my future is something everyone is looking forward to, that's what he says. fans took to the streets yesterday screaming and yelling and singing the praises of lebron james. but one man's gain is another man's loss. of course in miami, at least one fan lashed out in anger. look at this mural. they're not happy to see him go. they blacked out his face as he's there with the other members of the team, the miami heat. we'll see how many of theme are back next season. >> let's dig deeper into this decision. >> what does it mean to hear james is coming back home because of his desire to give everyone there a championship. he could have stayed in miami, made more title runs there, could have played snir in the world.
4:08 am
hey, bob -- bob can't hear us? we're having an audio issue? >> we'll get him back. >> it's so fun to see what is going on in cleveland. what a big week for them, the gop convention going to be there. >> in 2016. we'll work on the audio issue. we'll get him back, and we'll get you back. quick break. we'll take a moment and be right back. vo: this is the summer. the summer that summers from here on will be compared to. so get out there, and get the best price guaranteed. find it for less and we'll match it and give you $50 toward your next trip. expedia. find yours. live in the same communities that we serve. people here know that our operations have an impact locally. we're using more natural gas vehicles than ever before. the trucks are reliable, that's good for business. but they also reduce emissions, and that's good for everyone. it makes me feel very good about the future of our company.

so we worked out the audio issue. we were talking about lebron james returning to the cavaliers. and we have the beat reporter at the news herald in ho m. >> what was your reaction and did you expect it? >> reporter: well, i don't know if we can expect something like that. everyone was on pins and needles for a couple of days waiting for him to make his decision. but this might be the first time ever an athlete of this magnitude has chose to come back to cleveland. this doesn't happen here for us and this was a very big day, perhaps the biggest day in sports history.
4:12 am
>> lebron, he's not making any championship promises like he did when he went to miami in 2010. but what do you think? does he have the roster surrounding him? is everything possibly right lining up for the cavs to win one? >> reporter: it's kind of hard to predict a championship with this team. they are a contender right away because of lebron. he's the best player on the planet. he does have a supporting cast that's pretty good. but they don't have playoff experience. right now lebron and anderson are the only players who have appeared in a playoff game that's on the rosters. but there's a lot of emerging talent on the team. >> we've been talking this morning about cleveland itself. i've from the cleveland area and i always say the fans there are so passionate and they're so loyal. but beyond the game, what does lebron coming back mean to the
4:13 am
community there? >> reporter: well it means, you know, everything to the city. just like i said before yb you just don't have people wanting to come to play in cleveland, especially players like this. this team is ready to take the next step and it's goings to be a very interesting watch this year as they become one of the better teams in the eastern conference. >> so let's count this down now. the cavs have lebron, the browns have manziel. based on what you know, much more than we know about those two teams, who wins a championship first? >> reporter: well, it's hard to predict that. the browns are going to be vastly improved i think this year, and it's a little easier maybe to win on the nba level. there's only five players on the court at one time. i would say the cavs. >> all right. >> all righty. >> bob finnan going with the cavs before the browns.
4:14 am
thank you so much for spending some time with us this morning. >> reporter: thank you. >> we got to take a serious turn the crisis in the middle east. listen to this. >> i was driving after we left that gas station we were driving on a major street, major highway not far from the border with zba gaza and all of the sudden we heard the sirens. cars immediately stop right in the middle of the street. everyone gets out their cars, the doors are open and they run towards the closest bunker, the air raid shelters that are all over the place. you run in, get inside a bunker, you wait at least five minute, ten minutes for an all clear and then you go back to your vehicle, the coores are wide open, everyone gets in and they leave. it's a pretty tense situation, i must say, especially the closer you get to gaza and this area where i am right now is very close. >> of course that was cnn's wolf
4:15 am
whether it zer getting out of harm's way. >> and he's okay, which is the important thing of course. but this is what it looks like when a rocket does hit its target. take a look at that. in this case, a gas station in southern israel. >> and it looks like an all-out war zone. israeli strikes turn homes into smoking rubble. 121 people in gaza have been killed. nearly 1,000 people have been injured. >> let's bring in becky anderson. she's in jerusalem. we know that israel is saying it's preparing for all options, becky. does that mean that we are about to see israeli ground troops go into gaza? >> reporter: we don't know that for sure but an israeli official told me the goal is to bring about the end of these rockets. and he went on to say that we won't risk hamas going quiet
4:16 am
only for them to reemerge. it sounds very likely that this is going to ratchet up some. you've seen evidence of what is happening in gaza as a result of these air strikes. you've also seen the result of the rocket attacks from gaza into israel. this is a real mess. it's ten. but the reality on the ground is something we've got to remember. behind all of the statistics about how many air strikes have been operated by israelis and how many rockets have been fired by ma has is the picture on the ground for the israelis, thankfully nobody has been killed in this conflict to date although there have been injuries. but nearly 1,000 injuries. and rocking on towards 200 dead in gaza, the grime reality is absolutely awful on the ground. we were talking to the executive director about an hour ago of a hospital on the border inside
4:17 am
gaza. this is a hospital which is a clinic. they've got patients they can't move. they monitor them all of the time. they had four warnings from the israelis yesterday and one rocket attack on that hospital, the executive director tells me. there is now a human shield of international activists, including an american, a brit, couple of swedes who are providing a human shield which one aseems will be complicated for the israelis going forward. a long-winded answer to what was a very specific question, i know, christie. it's unclear at present but things certainly look as if they're ratcheting up at a this point. >> you mentioned this human shield around this facility trying to make it i guess more difficult for israelis to fire into that area and you mentioned the disparity and injuries and no deaths in israel. is there international pressure on israel to stop firing into
4:18 am
gaza considering that there is no iron dome over that area and there is no way for people to be warned? >> reporter: you're making a very good point, victor. to remind our viewers, the iron dome is the shield, the mobile shield that the israelis use to shoot down any rockets that are incoming from gaza. nothing of that sort of course in gaza itself, no shelters. when the call comes from the israelis, that will be a telephone call to a gaza house hold, they just have to get out. the international pressure has been there. netanyahu said on record that he will resist any international pressure to hold operations p. t it's his spnt to protect them from the rocket fire and as long
4:19 am
as it continues, the israelis will continue to fight back. we've heard from the international community. the u.s. expressing support for the israelis. at this point, no bowing to international pressure from netanyahu. i think we should hear from him if not today, sunday. it is now the afternoon in israel here, 20 past 2:00. expect more from the israelis to come both in rhetoric and in action, i think. >> all right. we'll stand by for that. becky anderson reporting this morning. thank you. meanwhile as the immigration crisis unfolds, the political firestorm is heating up in washington. president obama wants almost $4 billion to deal with the many facets of the problem. we'll tell you what republicans are staying to that. plus this alleged escort is now charged with murdering a google executive. but it doesn't end there. police think she might have killed before.

4:24 am
address the crisis that's happening. right now the struggle for congress is to hash out exactly what that will look like and which side will have to give in more. as u.s. officials struggle to contain the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the u.s./mexico border, the obama administration is begging congress for help. >> not doing anything frankly is not an option because it will require us to simply run out of money. >> reporter: asking for nearly $4 billion to temporarily shelter tens of thousands of immigrants, many of them unaccompanied minors, send them home up a step up border patrol. >> these children are seeking refuge. they're seeking refuge from organized crime, despicable gangs, vile human traffickers. >> reporter: both sides agree there's a humanitarian crisis but leading republicans have this ultimatum. >> i've talked to a number of my colleagues who are republican senators. we will not agree to the
4:25 am
additional funds, the $3.7 billion, most of which is to care for these children and provide the facilities until we can assure the american people that it's going to stop. and unfortunately that is not in the president's request. >> reporter: mccain and his arizona colleague jeff flake are calling for faster deportations of children caught at the border and asking for increased aid to their countries with arguing that's the only way to drive the message the united states won't tolerate it any more. now this crisis is becoming a jumping off point to restart the case for comprehensive immigration reform. >> all we have to do is get the republican leadership in the house to say we'll finally let a vote take place. we know there are votes sufficient to pass a bill that would give aus common sense fix. >> reporter: despite momentum to take action, democrat
4:26 am
congressman warning -- >> everyone wants a quick fix. at the end of the day, the likely scenario is nothing happens. >> reporter: in addition to that mccain-flake legislation we talked about, also texas senator, a republican, is introducing another piece of legislation. there is a lot of momentum for something to happened. >> i saw that we heard from a top republican senator, john mccain. what are the leading democrats saying? >> reporter: well, it's interesting what we're hearing from some of the members who represent districts along the border. there are nine border congressmen, eight of them are democrats and on our air in the past week some of them have been quite critical of the obama administration. wan vargas said to me that he hasn't heard much from the white house and he's been surprised by

>> jennifer gray, thank you. all right. let's turn now to the latest development of the death of a georgia toddler left in a hot car. paypal says it will refund all of the donations to a fund-raising campaign. also this week the child's father justin ross harris was fired from his job at home depot. as for the child's mother, leanna harris, she's hired her own lawyer and left georgia. let's talk about this with mo ivory and jose baez. thank you both so much for being with us. hoe say, i want to start with you first. i mean, you were involved in one of the biggest cases we've seen in the u.s. one of the most polarizing cases and you won. if you were part of justin ross harris's defense right now, what would be your biggest concern in
4:35 am
terms of what you see as the biggest obstacle for him at this point? >> well, i think the biggest concern right now is having him convicted before he's had his day in court. i think that's a huge concern of the defense at this time. and i think that's something they should be looking out for throughout this ordeal. so that's step one when you're answering a case like this. your client is already presumed guilty despite the fact this man may have been an excellent father throughout this child's life and with one tragic accident or mistake, his life has been turned upside down and he's under the microscope and being criticized heavily for a lot of his conduct, some of which may be explainable, some of it may not be. >> mo, we know wood stock police, they're now in communication, having contact with the cobb county detectives who are leading the investigation to find out if any of these conversations, the
4:36 am
sexting, if there was any improper involvement in their community. we know that he went to a park there, according to the detective. what's the impact of that investigation and all of the salacious elements on the main objective here? >> well, i mean, going to wood stock and finding more out about the sexting and the activity he had there, whether the person was was communicating with was under age or of age is part of collecting the evidence. if they find something that's outside of their jurisdiction in cobb, they're going to go to that place and figure out if he has any connection. it's all about the fact finding right now. it will impact what happens at trial and what will be allowed to be introduced. i do agree with jose. he comes from a very defense background and i obviously feel that this man murdered his child. but i do understand what he's saying that h is presumed gl right now by the court of public opinion but that is not the court that is going to be trying him. we do have to sit back and
4:37 am
continue to talk about what we're finding. but we do have to wait for the trial to know what exactly we're going to find out about what the totality of the case will be about. >> let's talk a little more about that. mr. baez, there are three points i think that this people have heard that are hard to erase. you can't unring a bell. he exchanged nude photos with women the day that his son died, that he viewed websites that advocated against having children and other websites that detail how people die in hot cars. if that is all admitted as evidence, how do you sever that image of this man with the image of a loving father? >> well, it's very difficult, but i can tell you, i don't think the sexting has anything to do with this case. in fact the only purpose it would serve would be to tarnish this man's image in front of the jury. whether that was a decision that sexting has snog do as to whether he decides to kill his
4:38 am
child, i don't see the correlation there. i realize this prosecutors will try and make that. i think what they need to do -- the defense will need to, first, probably have this man evaluated both psychologically and neurologically. we don't know if he had any neurologic conditions that may impair his memory. if he's the type of individual who loses his keys all of the time, has possibly left the child in the car before and probable has this some type of issue where he's extremely forgetful and you can show patterns of that, it might make it much more reasonable for someone to conclude that, look, this is an individual who forgets things all of the time and perhaps this was an accident. >> okay. >> i think the statement from the wife at the day care center that he left the child -- he must have left the child in the car might go to reinforce that. >> i wanted to ask a question
4:39 am
but your facial expressions tell me you don't buy that. >> with all due respect, this is the biggest garbage aye ever heard. he didn't forget to sext six women while his child was in the car. absolutely it's going to be -- it does have to do with what the activity was going on in his life and why that could be crucial to why he wanted to get rid of his child. >> absolutely not. >> i think it absolutely matters. >> there are single fathers throughout this country who love their children and just because he's a bad husband has nothing to do with whether he's a good father. so every father hates their child as well as their ex-wife. >> you walk out to the car and you automatically in ten minutes sexting six women. at no point does it dawn on the
4:40 am
job, oh my gosh i left my child in the car. it's going to be important. >> you don't know this man. we're sitting around here acting like we know him. >> we are sure learning a bunch of things about him. >> if this has nothing to do, as you say, with the question of if he intended to leave his child in the car, and we would not be talking about this if this weren't released in open court, why don't they waive the probably cause hearing and move to band. do you think the defense attorney knew about this because there's no discovery about this. >> they wanted to see what the prosecution's hand was. and anytime you get to see the prosecution's case ahead of time, it help you prepare for it. that teej cli, it's important to have that type of hearing to see what you're dealing with. >> do you think the defense attorney knew about all of this? >> i think there's certainly a good chance that he did. you have access to your client. and if you're doing a thorough job, you're going to ask your client about all of these things
4:41 am
and hopefully your client is being honest with you. if not, it's going to be a valuable lesson to teach your clientd, hitting him over the head saying see, look what happens when you don't tell me everything. it's extremely important to the defense of a client. >> we didn't have enough time. maybe we'll be able to work it in somewhere. thank you both so much. coming up later this morning at 10:00, we're going to be speaking live to two friends of accused father justin ross harris. so when we talk about not knowing this man, hopefully they're going to help us know a little more. >> as much as we can. so this is disturbing too but in a totally different way. if you work at a desk, have you heard this, all day, you've got to watch our next story. apparently sitting can be more harmful that you think, specifically for you waistline. if you're going to the gym, if

sitting at work puts you right back where you started. >> that's depressing. dr. dave montgomery, cardiologist at the paid month heart institute here in atlanta joins us. okay. so we know we probably because of work sit too much but come on. i mean, i suite my tush off in spin class for an hour. are you telling me i have to go for two to make it matter? >> it's unfair, isn't it? but everybody should listen to this. this is changing the game for us, isn't it? what we've understood over the last decade or so is that the shift in perspective about exercise is that there's a real distinction between too little exercise and too much sitting. as you know if our society, a large number of americans are actually sitting for a lot of time, 50%, 60% of our waking hours. if we assume that americans will sleep for eight hour, 50% to 60% of that time you're sitting,
4:47 am
screen time, writing, meetings. and we know now that that causes real card ya metabolic problems, heart dsz, diabetes, obesity. >> i used to work out before the show and then come and sit and do this show for five hours all for not, i guess. what -- i can't pedal while i'm at the desk. but what can people do if they can't avoid the sitting? >> there ruz this whole community afoot of treadmill desk people. not efb can do that. there are different things you can do right here at the desk. you can get up because it's the breaks in the sedentary period of time, that 60% to 70% of time that americans are having that is going to reduce your cardiac metabolic risk. go over to your coworker's desk, go the long way to the rest room. but stuff like people who write for example, i've got to sit at a desk. there's an app for that. you can use a voice dictation app on your phone to write a
4:48 am
paragraph or two, send it to yourself for editing. a lot of us do social media at work. we're not supposed to but we sometimes do. >> i don't know what you're talking about. >> not you. so you might say okay if i'm going to take a quick break, i'll stand. even standing adds on to the amount of calories. one minute of light exercise, standing, light walking can decrease your calories. >> so if i'm sitting for an hour, if i know that i'm going to be sitting for three hours, i get up and take a two-minute walk, that's helpful. >> multiple times. >> i want to talk about this big study out that found that the lack of exercise is the main culprit for america's obesity epidemic, not overeating. did it surprise you? >> i did a little more digging and over that same period of time, believe it or not, the amount of fast food that we eat -- that's intuitive. the amount of fast food that we
4:49 am
consumed over that same period of time is the same. that goes against what people are thinking. the thing i want to point out is we've got to make a distinction between population based data like this and data, you know, in an individual person. because while on a population level we're not eating more calories per se over the 20 years -- if you go further back we are over that 20-year period and we've redesigned our environment so that we don't move. on an individual level your weight is still the balance of the amount of calories and the type of calories that you take in and the amount of energy you expend in exercise and activity. >> you took me on bit of a ride there. we us down and now i'm back up. yardologist dr. dave montgomery. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> this is another store rewe've been talking about this week.

5:03 am
which i understood. i just went over there with a couple of my staff members. we drove around the facility. it looked just like a military barracks on a military base. except this time there was a chain link fence all the way around it and no access points. the chain link fence was obscured with cloth so nobody could see in or out. we made an effort to find a gate with a gate guard. all we wanted to do was talk to the person running the facility. we finally drove around and we saw somebody peering through the cloth. we stopped the car and asked if i could talk to the person who runs the facility. they said i could come back on the 21st of july. this was on the 1st of july. i explained i was a representative of the people and make sure that the gentleman who runs the facility understands
5:04 am
that. they came back and said we are not taking any advivisitors unt the 21st of july. i said i needed to talk to the gentleman. he came out and said sorry, no access until the 21st of july. i said you do understand i'm a represeetitivresent representat people and this is federal property. it seemed i would have access here. >> congress member, what did you expect to see? what is your concern that is happening in the facility? >> my concern is that of many people which is we have heard stories of tragedy. a lot of the children have gone miles and they have been trafficked, whether it is drug trafficking organizations that are human trafficking now, whether it is the coyotes.
5:05 am
there are stories of once the children end up in these, i guess, organizations that are trafficking humans, whether they are coyotes or other organizatio organizations, organized crime, there are stories of massacres. there are 70,000 to 100,000 dead bodies in northern mexico as a direct result of the open border on the south side of the united states. these people are being trafficked. there are stories of death and stories of course, abuse and human trafficking. all i wanted to do was visit the facility and talk to the medical professionals and try to understand the situation. as a member of congress, i want to be able to solve this problem. i can't solve it if i don't know what is happening on the ground. the concerns here are very real. this is a humanitarian crisis. we all agree on that.
5:06 am
the question is -- go ahead. >> i was going to say, congress member bridenstine, we are grateful you will join us tomorrow once you get into the facility to let us know what you saw and how you feel about what is going on there. we want to thank you so much for your time and look forward to talking to you again tomorrow. >> thank you so much. i look forward to joining you. >> thank you, congress member. let's bring in now cnn contributor dan astrepo. >> dan, thank you for being here. first of all, what is your reaction to what you heard from congress member bridenstine. >> the congress has a role to play here. the failure to see the facilities and see what is happening firsthand is important. this has to be done in a way so it doesn't disrupt. we had a debate of whether the president should or should not have gone to the border. part of the reason he does not go is he is disruptive wherever
5:07 am
he goes. that balancing act is what needs to happen here. there is a lot on congress' plate with the administration request for funding. congress has a role to play here and making sure it is done in the way that doesn't disrupt. it can be win-win. >> if you can help people understand why that 2008 law was enacted that treated children from mexico differently than children from central america and now all the discussion about overturning that and going in the other direction and treating all children the same. >> it is from non contiguous countries. canada and mexico are treated differently. we don't talk about canada much in the context. the management of flow. you had a steady state of 10,000 kids a year from mexico show up over the years. there was less evidence those kids were trafficked by human trafficking networks. the different set of rules put in place so border patrol agents
5:08 am
could assess and decide if any trafficking was going on. if there was, those kids got processed. if not, they could be returned much like any other mexican, adult mexican can get a return quicker in the administration. there was more evidence of human trafficking among central american and other folks away from the united states and arriving in the united states illegally. the idea was to give them more process and a chance for the system to determine if they were victims of human trafficking or migrants or some sort of other set of claims. as a result of that 2008 law, what you have is the lag in time among central american kids in particular that as they arrive in the united states, they get put into immigration system that is overwhelmed. that immigration system takes sometimes 18 months to two years for folks to have a hearing and
5:09 am
determine if they have valid claims. if they don't have valid claims, these kids get sent home and deported. if they have valid claims, they stay. the lag has created noise in the system, if you will, and people think they have a better chance of being able to stay in the united states two years or longer, which is creating some of the incentive for the movement of people. i say some because it is important to remember, people from the three countries from guatemala, honduras and el salvador are migrating south. they are going to nicaragua and costa rica. that has everything to do with the dangerous situation these folks are facing. dangerous and poverty they are facing. >> quickly, we just have a couple of seconds here. why not repeal the law to allow the children to apply for asylum? >> there is still trafficking going on here. that is why i think the administration is looking for more discretion to be a bit more
5:10 am
flexible here. we have to get the balance right between the nation of law and compassionate nation. >> dan restrepo, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> thanks, dan. >> a lot of people watch this and doesn't matter which side of the line they fall on with immigration policy. they want to know what to do for the children. some of them are 4 or 5 or 14 or 15. if you want to know how to help, you can find the organizations to support that offer food and medical care and support on the ground. go to cnn.com/impact. find ways to help. let's talk about the air strikes that continue in gaza and our own wolf blitzer got caught in the crossfire. >> you can hear the sirens that just gone off. we are told to get to a shelter. we are running. >> wolf weighs in on his

5:51 am
>> this is a really elusive and dangerous fugitive. one reason this show will be so important, he is our first fugitive and very different from "america's most wanted." we dedicated the whole hour to catching shane miller. shane miller has a rap sheet a mile long. married a naive trusting woman. he was a domestic violence abuser. she tried to go to a shelter to get away from him. she went back. she was somehow hoping he would change and he rewarded her coming back by murdering her. police say he shot her and shot his 5-year-old and 8-year-old daughters to death. as you know, i'm the father of a murdered child. i just can't stand anybody who would hurt a child. shane miller, when they went looking for him in probably northern california's biggest manhunt ever, they found he had
5:52 am
a bunker. he was not supposed to own guns. he had 44 assault rifles in the bunker with over 1,000 rounds of ammunition. he is wanted for murdering his wife and gorgeous two daughters, he is dangerous. he could pop up and kill anybody. if you rub him the wrong way, the small town is terrified where he committed the crimes. this guy needs to be off the streets. >> let's play a clip quickly from the show. one of the most chilling moments of this first show is that 911 call from the night of the murders. let's listen here. >> 911. your emergency. >> hello? >> on the evening of may 7th, 2013, our dispatchers received a 911 call from the miller residence. the phone, there was no
5:53 am
conversation, but they could hear what sounded like a person crying on the phone and then the dispatcher referred to hearing loud bangs. [ indiscernible ] >> our dispatchers knew something was wrong at the scene. >> your a parent. i'm a parent. i cannot get over what this must have been like for that mom and her children. that is what is most jolting. that he killed his wife and two little girls. you talked about it briefly. help us understand the danger factor with this guy. >> here is a big man who is a coward. a narcissitic coward.
5:54 am
you can split up. you can get to see your children. who decides this marriage is not working. she is going to leave me so i will kill her, but i will shoot my 5-year-old and 8-year-old. i bet the call was coming from the 8-year-old girl while he was beating and shooting their mom. this man should not be able to breathe another breath before coming in to trial. this family is devastated. this is not a man who needs to be out there. he is baffled cops. he is cunning. he is smart. he could be in mexico. he was a drug dealer. this could have terrible consequences and i am praying and hoping people will tune in. you will see a great show. that is part of it. i hope that somebody -- i know he is getting help somewhere. i know he is somewhere. he is too much of a coward to kill himself. that would have been the right ending to this story. somebody will know something. god forbid nobody is helping
5:55 am
him. i want to say to that person, shane miller can turned around and shoot you in the face if you make him mad for one second. if law enforcement finds out you are harboring him, you will go to jail. do the right thing and take this monster off the streets. >> "the hunt with john walsh" airs right here on cnn tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. let's go to cleveland where all is forgiven. ♪ cleveland rocks >> the town and team welcome being back lebron james with open arms. >> he won two championships in miami. can he deliver one for the cavs? fingers crossed. ♪ cleveland rocks moderate to se crohn's disease is tough, but i've managed. ♪ i got to be pretty good at managing my symptoms, except that managing my symptoms was all i was doing. ♪
