7:04 am
more than a foot of snow. so we've got reporters all around the country in the storm's path in new jersey, philadelphia, new york and boston, too. jury riee jury rica duncan has more. >> reporter: the snow is pretty soft but coming down since about 3:00 this morning and it just continues to accumulate, at least six inches has fallen already. people are pretty much staying off the roadway as emergency officials are urged them to do. it's not just the snow we're talking about. we're talking about the wind as well, making visibility very difficult for drivers. bottom line, if you live along the east coast, you're bracing for a long snowy day. >> the plowing started early this morning. truck drivers are working to keep up with the thick snow blanketing the roads. >> let us guys take care of stuff. please stay home if you can. >> reporter: overnight temperatures plunged as the storm moved in and snow began to
7:05 am
fall. forecasters are predicting more than a foot of snow could fall in some places. the storm is expected to strengthen through the morning commute. >> don't be fooled by the warm weather. >> reporter: yesterday felt like spring in parts of the northeast. new york city peaked at a record 62 degrees. but with the conditions turning back to winter, the city's emergency management department is urging caution. >> we're going to be experiencing very fast snowfall. it could be up to three inches an hour. that will create whiteout conditions. visibility will be very, very poor. >> reporter: the national weather service is also warning the storm will create dangerous driving conditions from philadelphia to boston, a more than 300-mile stretch of the northeast. officials are telling people to travel in emergencies only. there are plenty of snowplows that continue to stay on these roadways. this is not the first time,
7:06 am
obviously, a community like this has been hit with a severe snowstorm. just last year they got 30 inches in one single storm. right now schools are closed, new jersey governor chris christie asking people to stay off the roads. >> jerikca, thanks. it was 60 degrees 18 hours ago. the heavy snow is creating treacherous driving conditions all across the northeast. here is a look from new haven, connecticut. philadelphia also has declared a snow emergency. tony dokoupil is there where about half a foot is expected. tony, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i don't know if you can tell where i'm standing. these are the very top of the philadelphia art museum steps. typically on a normal morning, you can see the entire skyline of the city. the sun has been up for hours. with this snowstorm you can barely make out two of those large buildings. it's amazing to contemplate that yesterday it was 60 degrees and sunny. there were people in shorts. as recently as 7:30 this morning
7:07 am
on the east coast there was no snow on the ground. suddenly, the temperature dropped, the snow got very heavy and i've got to tell you the city of philadelphia there and the region taking no chances. there are speed restrictions on the major highways. the majority of flights at nearby philadelphia airport have been canceled. schools have been canceled, government buildings are closed and salt trucks are working around the clock. 50,000 tons of salt put on the roads to try to get things back to normal. the forecast is now a now cast and it is snow. >> tony, thank you. the storm is causing chaos on the roads and paralyzing airports. about 3,000 flights to, from and within the u.s. have already been canceled today. according to kris van cleave is at jfk airport with a closer look at the impact around the country. chris, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. more than half the flights into the new york city area have been canceled. here at jfk that's around 500
7:08 am
and counting as this region is getting pummeled by a winter storm. now, all of the airlines canceled preemptively to get ahead of this storm, all the major carriers are offering to waive change fees for passengers flying to or from airports from the d.c. area up through maine and parts of canada. the nation's largest carrier, american airlines, planned to canc cancel at least 750 flights today. the biggest impact felt in airports in hub cities, including new york, philadelphia and washington. new york city-based jetblue canceled more than 700 flights in advance as well. delta put the number of cancellations around 350. southwest said roughly 250 have been canceled. that includes flights from the west coast. trust me. it's nicer where you are. the hope is to resume service after the storm, possibly tonight or friday. >> if you're scheduled to fly
7:09 am
today, you are not happy right now. thank you very much, kris van cleave. >> danielle niles of wbz is tracking this system. good morning, danielle. what do you see? >> a major winter storm is bearing down across the northeast. blizzard warnings from long island to the south shore and down to cape cod, near zero visibility through the afternoon. intensity picking up through this afternoon, two to four inches per hour. thundersnow already reported, will continue through the afternoon. it will end up become over a foot for most of eastern maine stretching back down into southeast new york. six to 12 inches in the blue. i wouldn't be surprised to see 14, 16, maybe even 18-inch amounts pop up south of boston. on the west coast, it's all about the rain. flood watches and warnings are posted from oregon back down to california. we're talking about a pretty active couple of days here with widespread areas of rain. amounts could top out over two
7:10 am
inches and parts of eastern california could see up to five in a few spots on the west coast. >> danielle, thanks. here is a look at the snow still piling up here in new york city. that's right outside the broadcast center. we'll continue to bring you updates on the storm throughout the newscast this morning. >> president trump faces new criticism from an unlikely source, his own supreme court nominee. judge neil gorsuch called the president's attack on the judiciary after a judge blocked his controversial travel ban demoralizing and disheartening. democratic senator revealed the comments made in a closed doosh meeting on capitol hill. major garrett is at the white house where the president is not letting up. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. as you suggested, the president's recent criticism of the federal court has drawn attention of supreme court nominee neil gorsuch and he was reportedly not impressed. as the federal courts continue to review the administration's travel ban, the president said the time for tighter security is now.
7:11 am
>> terrorism is a far greater threat than the people of our country understand. >> reporter: president trump's startling words about potential attacks came amid his continued criticism of a federal court order halting his temporary travel ban. >> courts seem to be so political, and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what's right. >> reporter: the president's legal jousting did not extend to supreme court nominee and federal appeals court justice neil gorsuch. >> i'm very proud to have picked judge gorsuch who i think is going to be an outstanding member of the supreme court, outstanding. >> reporter: on capitol hill gorsuch told democratic senator richard blumenthal he considered mr. trump's recent comments about the federal judiciary disheartening and demoralizing. asked about the judge's
7:12 am
sentiment, south carolina republican senator lindsey graham said i think that was probably an honest answer, good for the judge. as for the order, white house press secretary sean spicer says terrorism concerns validate the move. >> there's at least 20-some-odd people through the last ten years who have come into this country and been convicted or charged with acts of terrorism. >> reporter: the white house says represents people who have targeted or intend to target americans either ian side or outside the u.s. many are naturalized u.s. citizens who later become radicalized. moments ago on twitter president trump took on this controversy about judge gorsuch's remarks and tweeted as follows, let me quote it directly. senator richard blumenthal who never fought in vietnam when he said for years he had, major lie, now misrepresents what judge gorsuch told him, question
7:13 am
mark. anthony, the president does not assert it was a misrepresentation, just leaves the question hanging out there. >> major, thank you. some senate democrats say judge gorsuch's criticism of the president may not be enough to get them to vote yes on his nomination. jan crawford looks at the context behind gorsuch's remarks. jan, good morning. >> good morning. in an interview after their meeting, blumenthal suggested gorsuch's concerns weren't going to be enough to sway his vote. he suggested gorsuch should make his comments publicly and more explicitly. this all comes in the wake of president trump's recent tweet where he slammed the so-called judge, as he put it, who suspended his temporary travel ban. but it is highly unusual to see a nominee criticize the president who nominated him. what makes this even more unusual, it is nothing new to see a president complaining about the judiciary. president obama berated conservative justices who were sitting right in front of him during the 2010 state of the union address.
7:14 am
president clinton suggested at one point he would ask a lower federal court judge to resign over one of his controversial decisions. in fact, one president, franklin delano roosevelt tried to change the entire composition of the supreme court because he was so unhappy with its rulings. that is why you're seeing some outside groups suggest this is nothing more than a ploy for the cho chous to show gorsuch might be independent. >> interesting point, jan. senator jeff sessions is about to be sworn in as u.s. attorney general this morning. alabama's governor chose state attorney general luther strange to take his seat in the senate. sessions resigned overnight after his nomination was confirmed. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the final hours of a tense debate. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. now that sessions has been confirmed, that's eight cabinet positions down, about a dozen to
7:15 am
go. each fight over confirmation seems to get more bitter than the last now that sessions is leaving the senate, he had advice for the battle-scarred senators he's leaving behind. >> in the future, maybe the intensity of the last few weeks would die down. >> reporter: in what now passes for bipartisanship, one democrat joined every republican in voting to confirm sessions for attorney general. sessions urged his now ex-colleagues to treat other nominations be less heat than they did his. >> denigrating people who disagree with us i think is not a healthy trend for our body. >> reporter: the rest of the senate is not in the mood for healthy discourse. >> the democrats are angry and they're out of their minds, foaming at the mouth practically. >> reporter: the decision by republicans to bardem krat liz wealth warren in the sessions' debate drove sides further into their own camps.
7:16 am
democrats say she was silenced. >> leader o'connell owes senator warren an apology. >> reporter: lindsey graham said she had it coming. >> the bottom line is it was long overdue with her. i mean she is clearly running for the nomination in 2020. >> i don't understand how he can say that. >> reporter: claiming senator warren broke an obscure rule when she read a 30--year-old letter. >> mr. sessions used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens. >> the rules are very clear that you don't impugn another senator. >> reporter: forward wren, the ensuing drama has some upside. >> you did send out a fund-raising letter shortly after all this happened. how much have you raised off of this? >> i don't have any idea. but i'll tell you this. lots of people have now seen coretta scott king's letter. i think it's more a part of our
7:17 am
living history again. >> reporter: more drama coming today. the senate is going to be debating the nomination of georgia congressman tom price to be secretary of health and human services. democrats say he wrote legislation to benefit some of his investments while republicans insist he obey the law. protesters fighting the deportation of a 36-year-old arizona mother tried to block a van from carrying her away. police arrested seven protesters rallies in mesa, arizona, on behalf of the woman. she was reportedly arrested under a 2013 judicial deportation order. the order was not enforced during the obama administration. president trump has set a stricter policy. don dahler is here with what could be the first in a new wave of deportations. >> good morning, guadalupe reyes was arrested yesterday during her annual check-in with immigration officials. she'll reportedly be sent back to mexico, a country she left as
7:18 am
a teenager 21 years ago. protesters banded together to block an immigrations and customs enforcement ban near phoenix arizona. locked inside, a 36-year-old mother of two who lives in arizona illegally. reyes was reportedly convicted of a felony in 2008 for using a fake social security number. she served six months in an i.c.e. detention center. in 2013 a judge ruled she had no legal standing to remain in the country. but on appeal, she was allowed to stay with regular check-ins. when she showed up at this immigration office wednesday, she was taken into custody. under president obama, nearly 3 million people were deported, but minor offenders like rayos were given a pass. recent executive orders broadened the definition of a criminal alien to include undocumented immigrants charged with any crime.
7:19 am
the family and supporters say her arrest is a direct result of the president's crackdown. her two u.s.-born children, including 16-year-old son angel say they're heartbroken. >> no one should ever have to be separated from their mother. my mom is my everything. she's always there for me. no one should ever have to go through this. >> i.c.e. officials say she's being deported because of a 2013 court order. her lawyer says her original arrest took place during a workplace raid they argue was unconstitutional. and, therefore, she should be allowed to stay in the country. gayle? >> thank you, don. circus performers plunge 25 feet from a dangerous high wire act. ahead, the mishap that seriously hurt the entertainers working
