And his mother would put on the green jacket fourteen years ago after his last victory at a gas that no one has ever gone that long. Between mastered winds eighty know people will be talking about this today. Number two the White House that the controversial plan to bus migrants from the southern border. To so called Sanctuary Cities is on the table a proposal has already been rejected twice by Homeland Security by the white house Press Secretary is here Sanders. And they're now doing an extensive review because president trump. Likes the idea mayors and cities that chose not to cooperate with the immigration officials say they'll welcome the migrants.

The final season of the HBO mega hit again last night but don't worry no spoilers here. High demand on HBO's streaming service and on Hulu reportedly caused problems. For some fans HBO denies there were any server issues others got a head start watching thanks to DirecTV which could get million leaked to the episode. More hours early now the top nineteen trending topics on Twitter overnight all nineteen related to the show. Very union count during the show is high but the body count was surprisingly. So that. You have to wait till next Sunday it's not to get the whole season at once and that's that's turning some yes it is. Wore a low lots more to talk about it. Singing our way into Monday because they're Smart and America all of it. The crews back. The big big big. Okay yeah the big today. That big should the big today the big curls the big and it drove her back. Even now I I've I rival G on the curls with a little. And now he did can it looks really good and that way ending he wanted to free the curls. As best he could since there are new apparel and Barron's news now that we gave young Friday Friday ahead of game of drones premiere yesterday which so many peep. Well we're talking about everybody everybody I will watch. A couple as the few to victory there that's that HBO no spoilers here right wants violence and we're gonna have a lot of fun talking about it ha but first we're gonna get to that big development story over the weekend the White House. Defending a controversial idea to bus migrants detained at the border to so called Sanctuary Cities like San Francisco. Now the plan was already rejected twice for president trump wants to revisit the idea Democrats claim it's illegal. And they accuse the president of using humans as pawns ABC Serena Marshall has the new. Good morning Serena. And it today good morning now let's get step back here on and where exactly we are in this plant disease the White House has gone back and forth on whether or not as women they're looking now when it first came out this is something they wanted to do. At first they looked at in November during the election and then in February during that standoff over border while finding. The White House telling us and they it was something that came up bright and they quickly rejected it as it not a real situation that they were going to embrace then the president came out not only tweeting about it is speaking out saying it's an idea that he likes. Now the White House is saying is something they're exploring as an option here's this here's Anders had to say on this week. What this is an option on the table I mean that we talked about. A number of different things over the last two years that we'd love to see happen. Certainly this wouldn't be our first choice because. Ideally we would be dealing with a massive influx of illegal immigrants coming across the border the crisis that we have both from a national security and humanitarian standpoint. Is it Democrats would step up and help the president fix the laws. This all could go away we wouldn't be having this discussion and that would be the best thing for the country. And that would certainly be the best way to solve this crisis and sings this problem and we don't wanna put all of the burden on one or take border communities. And Democrats have stated time and time again they support open borders that supports Sanctuary Cities. So let's spread out some of that burden let's put it in some of those other locations. If that's what they want to see happen in are refusing to actually help fix the problem. I can't today there are a lot of questions about this plan of first and foremost is it legal now the White House Hussein and the president has treated today is absolutely legal but according to some of the reporting we have it doesn't president was looking at specifically moving in these migrants to Sanctuary Cities a political rivals. Now that's something that the federal government could it do targeting political rivals of course. I'd buy it they're looking at spreading this out all over the country that's another big question how to funds and of doing it Democrats are saying absolutely this is not legal an assassin and we should be focused on screen this is fascinating because I know the mayors of some of those so called Sanctuary Cities they're saying hey look sent. We will welcome the migrants with open arms but they claim that the president is using them as human pond and it seems almost. Counterintuitive to what the president wants to do because it's like if they come over the border. You you move this density cities were they're being welcomed with open armed. That is seems like incentive for more MP tells us unless it's them being deported which the president wants. Yeah exactly the eyes of the president wants these people eventually deported our member a lot of these folks are claiming a silence and I have to go through the court cases in order to actually have that claim process that can take years. So what the White House is doing because along the border all the detention facilities are maxed out is there of returning to that policy to the president has derided over the years of catch and release. Essentially taking some land processing them releasing them into the interior and tell other court cases processed. Now the president wants the bus these folks a Sanctuary Cities where you are a 100% right those Sanctuary Cities actually. Do when they intend to make it harder to deport people because what they're doing is or not complying with waste containers they're saying that you don't hold this person. Longer than what ever we pick them up for that I need an arrest warrants not just a request to hold them because that's putting at a added. And need on our community as seeking funds from our community and a make it less likely. For and they get immigrants to report crimes so how actually worked of the president's overall goal of deporting these people as big. Question it's something that the White House hasn't quite answered at. Three before you go. I am going back to the White House whip latch on and the responsiveness and in the present it then it first White House saying we were not for this it was taken off the table quickly and the president goes I'm not a good idea. I'm curious did this come from the media coverage of it first being reported out in print and then. All the media jumped on it and said this was something that the White House is thinking about. And the White House says no within the president who was an avid news watcher Steve that it says it. We should go back to the. I can't get so that leaves you wondering what out what kind of places us but other Republicans then because Howard they gotta support this went again. It seems like a goes completely against what their goal. It's now. Well the White House whiplash has not something where not exactly used slowdown here the president has Canada history undermining his own administration officials speaking points now. Going back when this was first floated apparently in November remember it was the mid term elections immigration was a hot topic and of course they're the dealing with this influx of migrants the southern border than in February. That's during the government shut down during that standoff a reporter while openings both kinds administrations as they quickly shut this down because according to some sources DHS officials the lawyers within the Department of Homeland Security said. It's a legal we can't do that bed then. When this story broke the president seen it as you mentioned it was all over the news stations and they said you know what I liked that idea let's explore as of now they're trying to see if there's a way they can do it legally and with these border towns in the 1980 Sanctuary Cities. Not who new mayors and governors eggs that are up saying okay ascent MR away. Or trying to call it a political win for both sides. Yeah we'll see if that happens and the White House what lies were all being fitted for neck braces. That's easy he can't add color. How clear through my Fred. Other shrubs growing warts as his reelection campaign is expected to announce that it raised more than thirty million dollars the first three months of the year. That is more than any of his predecessors race this early in the race that I'm campaign says it average donation was about 34 box. And it's set a goal of a billion. Dollars that cigarette politics people would a judge has formally kicked off his presidential campaign after saying for months it is time for a new generation of leadership.

Essentially yet so we handled walking through an intersection and they please let's fight units of its camera right so now is that it puts as an invasion of privacy that's the question and it.

On the far right fins pop T now of the social Democrats they got seventeen point 7% of the bags. The far right Finns party got seventeen point 5%. Two point 2% of of the of the difference. In the diet now what's gonna happen now is that the social Democrats are gonna have to have some. Very tough tools to try and figure out if they can make a coalition with some of the other policies. A bunch of bodies have so that they will not pay they will not join. The from the far right fins in any kind of coalition. Say that's going to be checking up in the coming days but look this is really interesting because you know we took a lot about Europe. Increasingly. Veering towards the far right rising far right parties across Europe and here we could see unless doing leads old. Of Finland for the first time in many years but I've got to say that these elections are important because Finland is -- take up the day European Union presidency soon.
