TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

IMMIGRATION IN AMERICA.

DETAILS ON THE SENATE DEAL

EXPECTED TO BE VOTED ON SOON.

PLUS AN IMPROVING ECONOMY?

WHEN THE GOVERNMENT MIGHT STEP

BACK ON STIMULUS EFFORTS.

WE GO BEHIND THE SCENES WITH

MSNBC HOST JOE SCARBOROUGH.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM MARK MARTIN.

BIPARTISAN SUPPORT IN CONGRESS

TODAY.

AFTER WEEKS OF NEGOTIATIONS,

SENATE LAWMAKERS AGREED TO

INCLUDE ENHANCED BORDER SECURITY

MEASURES IN EXCHANGE FOR

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY.

REPORTER: FOR REPUBLICAN

LAWMAKERS INKRECREASED SECURITY.

WE DON'T HAVE CONTROL OF OUR

SOUTHWESTERN BORDERS.

REPORTER: SOME OF THE KEY

PROVIDERS, SO-CALLED SURGE

ADDING 700 MORE MILES ALONG

U.S.-MEXICO BORDER AND TRACK

ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING.

ALL OF AT PRICE TAG.

DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKERS, CREATING A

PATHWAY TO GET U.S. CITIZENSHIP

IS KEY.

THESE 11 MILLION PEOPLE PLAY

A VITAL ROLE IN OUR COMMUNITIES

AND NEED A PATHWAY.

REPORTER: A PATHWAY TO

CITIZENSHIP AS ADDED SECURITY IS

IMPLEMENTED.

SO-CALLED GANG OF 8 SENATORS

INVOLVED IN THE NEGOTIATIONS ARE

HOPING THE NEW SECURITY MEASURES

WILL PASS IT BEFORE IT HEADS TO

THE HOUSE.

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER.

ANY IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL

OUGHT TO HAVE MAJORITY OF BOTH

PARTY'S SUPPORT.

REPORTER: GEORGE THOMAS, CBN

NEWS.

FOR MORE WE TURNED TO YOSA,

SENIOR FELLOW AT INDEPENDENT

INSTITUTE.

GOOD EVENING.

IT IS A COMPROMISE.

IT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU COULD

PASS THE BILL AT THIS POINT.

A LOT OF BORDER SECURITY AS IT

WAS.

THE WHOLE FIRST SECTION IS ABOUT

BORDER SECURITY.

THROWS A LOT OF MONEY, CREATES A

NEW AGENCY, PLACES A STRONG

CONDITION FOR PEOPLE WHO WILL

TRANSFER FROM TEMPORARY TO

PERMANENT RESIDENCE.

CONDITION IS 90% RATE OF

SUCCESS.

YET THEY THOUGHT THAT WAS NOT

ENOUGH.

THEY HAD TO GO DOWN THIS PATH, I

GUESS IN ORDER TO GET THE

SUPPORT FOR THE WHOLE DEAL.

IMMIGRATION REFORM WILL

ACTUALLY BOOST THE ECONOMY AND

LOWER THE FEDERAL DEFICIT, DO

YOU AGREE?

TOTALLY.

NO QUESTION.

OUR RESEARCH INDICATES IN THE

WORST CASE SCENARIO, ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS CONTRIBUTE ABOUT 36

BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR TO THE

ECONOMY IF THEY BECAME LEGAL,

THEY WOULD CONTRIBUTE 100

BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR OVER A

DECADE, THAT IS ALMOST A

TRILLION DOLLARS, CLEARLY, THAT

IS A HUGE BOOST TO THE ECONOMY

IN TERMS OF HOW MUCH THEY WILL

CONTRIBUTE, OF COURSE YOU WILL

HAVE TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT HOW

MUCH THEY PERSONALLY WILL

CONTRIBUTE ALSO INCORRECTLY.

ANOTHER BY BOOSTING

PRODUCTIVITY, THEY WILL GENERATE

A LOT MORE REVENUE FOR THE

GOVERNMENT.

CLEARLY A LOT TO BE GAINED.

REPUBLICANS PUSHED HARD FOR

BORDER SECURITY.

WHY IS THAT AN IMPORTANT ASPECT

OF IMMIGRATION MEASURE?

IT HAS TO DO WITH THE

DYNAMICS WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

THERE IS ALREADY A LOT OF EFFORT

ON THE FRONT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SPENT 18 BILLION

DOLLARS LAST YEAR SINCE 1980, A

SUSTAINED EFFORT TO BEEF UP

BORDER SECURITY.

IT MAY SEEM TO MANY PEOPLE STILL

THAT IT HAS BEEN GOING ON.

THE BILL IS VERY, VERY STRONG ON

THAT.

AGAIN, I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT

TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE CANNOT

SIMPLY SEAL OFF ALL THE BORDERS

COMPLETELY IN THIS DAY AND AGE.

IF WE GET THE RIGHT POLICY, WE

ARE GOING TO GET A BENEFIT, NOT

ONLY ON THE ECONOMY AND CULTURE,

ALSO IN TERMS OF BORDER

SECURITY.

PEOPLE WILL BE COMING IN

THROUGHOUT LEGAL CHANNELS AND A

LOT LESS PRESSURE ON THE WHOLE

APPARATUS LINKED TO BORDER

SECURITY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS FOR YOUR INSIGHTS.

THANK YOU.

HUNDREDS GATHERS IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR NATIONAL

HISPANIC PRAYER BREAKFAST.

*

PARTICIPANTS PRAYED FOR THEIR

COMMUNITIES, NATION AND OUR

LEADERS, CLERGY ATTENDED THE

EVENT OFFERING PRAYERS.

WE SPOKE WITH SENATOR REID.

WE ARE HOPING BY JULY 4TH THE

SENATE WILL HAVE AN AGREEMENT.

WE SPOKE WITH LEADERS OF THE

REPUBLICAN HOUSE, MR. CANTOR AND

LEADERSHIP TEAM.

IT IS OUR HOPE AND PRAYER WE

WILL HAVE IMMIGRATION REFORM.

VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN

SPOKE INVOKING THE BIBLE AS HE

SPOKE ABOUT IMMIGRATION.

ROMANS 2:12 TELLS US REJOICE

IN HOPE.

BE PATIENT IN TRIBULATION.

BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER.

I CAN'T THINK OF ANOTHER

COMMUNITY THAT ROMANS DESCRIBES

BETTER THAN YOURS.

ES PRAN SA IS THE LARGEST

FAITH BASED IN THE COUNTRY.

FBI SAYS IT IS USING ARIAL

DRONES IN THE U.S. ONLY ON

STATIONARY TARGETS.

FBI DIRECTOR TOLD CONGRESS THE

GROWING USE OF DRONE

SURVEILLANCE CALLS FOR DEBATE ON

HOW AND WHEN THEY SHOULD BE

USED.

CONCERNS ON AIR SPACE AND THREAT

TO PRIVACY SHOULD BE ADDRESSED

AS DRONES BECOME MORE OMNI

PRESENT.

SCARY WORD.

MUELLER SAYS FBI IS DEVELOPING

GUIDELINES FOR DRONE USE.

HE ADDED TOPIC IS WORTHY OF

DEBATE AND PERHAPS LEGISLATION

IN THE FUTURE.

GOOD NEWS FROM THE FEDERAL

RESERVE, CHAIRMAN BEN BERNANKE

SAYS U.S. RESERVE IS IMPROVING.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

REPORTER: FEDERAL RESERVE

BOARD BEN BERNANKE IS OPTIMISTIC

ABOUT IMPROVING U.S. ECONOMY.

THE FED WILL TAKE A GO SLOW

APPROACH CONTINUING THE STIMULUS

INCLUDING PURCHASE OF 85 BILLION

DOLLARS WORTH OF BONDS EACH

MONTH.

AS THE ECONOMY CONTINUES TO

IMPROVE STIMULUS EFFORTS SCALED

BACK.

CONTINUE TO TAKE MEASURED

STEPS ENDING PURCHASES AROUND

MID YEAR.

REPORTER: UNEMPLOYMENT

REMAINS HIGH AT 7.6%, THE RATE

COULD DROP TO 6.5% NEXT YEAR.

BERNANKE SAYS HOME CONSTRUCTION

AND SALES HAVE BOOSTED THE

ECONOMY.

HOUSING SECTOR WHICH HAS BEEN

A DRAG IS OBVIOUSLY A SUPPORT TO

GROWTH.

IT IS NOT ONLY CREATING

CONSTRUCTION JOBS AS HOUSE

PRICES RISE, INCREASED HOUSE

HOLD WEALTH.

MAKING IT MORE COSTLY TO BUY

CARS AND HOMES.

MORTGAGE RATES ALREADY HAVE

RISEN HALF A PERCENT AND HAVEN'T

BEEN THIS HIGH IN A YEAR.

PERSPECTIVE FIRST HOME BUYERS

WANT TO GET IN BEFORE THE RATES

GET HIGHER.

PEOPLE ARE THINKING IT MAKES

A BIG DIFFERENCE.

REPORTER: EVERY 1% MAKES IT

10% MORE COSTLY.

MONTHLY PAYMENT ON A 500,000

HOME WOULD INCREASE $239. IT

WOULD COST $200 A YEAR TO

REPLACE THEIR VEHICLE.

AMERICANS WILL EARN HIGHER

INTEREST ON SAVINGS ACCOUNTS AND

CD'S.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

UNITED STATES MILITARY MAKING

ITSELF PRESENCE KNOWN NEAR THE

SYRIAN BORDER.

18 NATIONS COMING TOGETHER IN A

SHOW OF POWER.

FIGHTER JETS, TANKS THAT SENDING

A MESSAGE TO SYRIA THAT FORCES

WILL INTERVENE.

THERE IS SOMETHING THAT WILL

PROTECT US.

THERE IS NO TIME LINE HOW

LONG U.S. TROOPS WILL REMAIN IN

THE AREA.

IRANIAN COURT CONVICTED A GROUP

OF CHRISTIANS FOR BEING A PART

OF A HOUSE CHURCH.

AMONG THE OTHER CHARGES,

PROPAGANDA AGAINST IRANIAN

REGIME, DISRUPTING NATIONAL

SECURITY, AND SPREADING

CHRISTIANITY.

THE MEN WERE SENTENCED TO 44

MONTHS IN PRISON AND WOMEN AND

SON, WOMAN AND HER SON EACH

RECEIVED SUSPENDED TWO YEAR

PRISON SENTENCE.

COMING UP, HOW ONE YOUNG

MISSIONARY OVERCAME HIS

DISABILITY TO REACH A NEW

GENERATION.

WELCOME BACK, GROWING UP WITH

MISSIONARY PARENTS, STEPHEN KUNG

L SUFFERED FROM AUTISM.

YOU'LL SEE IN THIS REPORT FROM

INTERNATIONAL MISSION BOARD, HE

HAS EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS.

HE TELLS US HIS OWN STORY

STARTING WITH HIS CARTOON

CHARACTER.

STEBUNA.

HE WAS HAVING A CALL FROM THE

LORD HE MUST GO TO A FAR

COUNTRY.

AT THAT TIME HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

THE MEANING WOULD YOU SAY EXCEPT

THAT HE HAD TO GO LEARN THE

LANGUAGE AND GOSPEL AND GET A

NEW ARMOR.

DIFFERENT ARMOR REPRESENTS

GROWTH.

I STARTED DRAWING MONGO WHEN

I WAS 16 YEARS OLD.

NOT SO I COULD BECOME FAMOUS OR

RICH.

MAIN PURPOSE IS THAT CHILDREN,

TEENAGE

TEENAGERS, AND A LOT OF PEOPLE

WOULD KNOW THEIR CREATOR.

IT REMINDS ME OF MY CHILDHOOD

AND HOW GOD HAS HELPED ME TO

GROW.

EVER SINCE I WAS LITTLE THE

DOCTORS SAID I WOULDN'T SPEAK

ANOTHER LANGUAGE BECAUSE OF

AUTISM.

A LOT OF AUTISTIC PEOPLE ARE

NON-SOCIAL.

THEY WOULD NOT THINK THE WORLD

BELONGS TO ALL PEOPLE OR GOD.

THE STEPHEN YOU ARE SEEING NOW

HAS A DIFFERENT VIEW, HE SEES A

LOT OF PEOPLE AND LIFE IS ABOUT

SERVING THE LORD JUST LIKE THE

LORD CAN HEAL THE BLIND, THE

CRIPPLED WALK, SO CAN THE LORD

WITH PERSON WITH A DISABILITY,

THE PERSON THAT CAN'T SPEAK MUCH

CAN SPEAK FIVE LANGUAGES

FLUENTLY.

I WOULD NEVER IMAGINE I WOULD

SPEAK JAPANESE AND BECOME A

MAJOR PART IN THIS CHURCH.

IN JAPAN.

HERE IN JAPAN, I WORK AS A

VOLUNTEER MISSIONARY TO A

FILIPINO-JAPANESE CHURCH.

I WORK NOT ONLY AS A TRANSLATOR

FOR THE PASTOR BUT TEACH ENGLISH

TO THE CHILDREN BUT HELP THE

YOUTH IN THEIR MINISTRY.

I PLAY A BAND IN THE CHURCH.

I AM THE KEY BOARD PLAYER.

SO FAR LIVING IN JAPAN, I

LEARNED TO DEPEND ON THE LORD

MORE THAN MYSELF.

I LEARNED HOW TO LOVE OTHERS AND

RESPECT OTHERS.

MOST IMPORTANT THING OF WHAT I

HAVE HAD TO OVERCOME IS EXCEPT

WHO I AM AND WHAT I AM MADE FOR

BY THE LORD.

I WAS MADE TO SERVE THE LORD AND

TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT CHRIST AND

TO SHARE THEM THE TESTAMENT OF

HOW GOD HEALED ME, PEOPLE THAT

HAVE DISABILITIES CAN HAVE THE

HOPE OF SERVING THE LORD.

NOT ALL OF US WERE MADE THE

SAME.

THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING NEVER

GIVE UP.

NEVER LOSE HOPE BECAUSE GOD IS

MOVING IN YOUR LIFE.

AND THAT IS WHAT STUBONO SERIES

IS ABOUT.

AMEN.

NEVER GIVE UP HOPE.

IN OTHER NEWS, CHRISTIAN

MINISTRY, EXDOES INTERNATIONAL

IS CLOSING THEIR DOORS AFTER 40

YEARS, THEY TRIED HELP GAY MEN

AND WOMEN IN THERAPY.

IN AN ANNOUNCEMENT, EXODUS

PRESIDENT ALLEN CHAMBERS

APOLOGIZED FOR PROMOTING REPAIR

TIF THERAPY.

I AM SORRY SOME OF YOU SPENT

YEARS WORKING THROUGHOUT SHAME

AND GUILT YOU FELT WHEN YOUR

ATTRACTIONS DIDN'T CHANGE.

YOU CAN READ THE ENTIRE

STATEMENT FROM ALLEN CHAMBERS AT

OUR WEBSITE CBNNEWS.COM.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

MSM --

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT DAVID

BRODY WENT TO NEW YORK CITY TO

GET A CLOSER LOOK AT THE MAN

BEHIND THE ANCHOR DESK.

ON THE SET SCARBOROUGH IS A

BREEZE.

I USE TO BE FRIENDS WITH

Y'ALL.

ON MSNBC, JOE SCARBOROUGH.

SOMETHING HE MAY LAUGH ABOUT.

HE IS FIGHTING BACK.

THEY ARE BULLIES, PUNCH THEM

IN THE FACE AND THEY BACK OFF.

BEING CRITICIZED HE IS USED

TO.

HE HELPED DELIVER A BALANCED

FEDERAL BUDGET.

NOWADAYS HE SPEAKS ABOUT

RELIANCE ABOUT GOD ALL MIGHTY,

SOMETHING HE BELIEVES IN

WHOLEHEARTEDLY, GREW UP AS AN

ACTIVE SOUTHERN BAPTIST.

FAITH IN THE GOD THAT WAS

REVEALED IN THE SERMON ON THE

MOUNT PERFECT ANECDOTE TO THE

MEISM OF ALL TIME.

RESIGNED FROM CONGRESS AFTER

ONLY SIX YEARS BECAUSE OF

CHALLENGES.

ONE OF HIS SONS, ANDREW HAS A

SLIGHT FORM OF AUTISM, OTHER,

JOEY, EMOTIONALLY NEEDED

WASHINGTON, D.C. FATHER AT HOME.

HE SAID I NEED YOU AT HOME.

THE FAMILY COUNSELOR SAID YOU

CAN COME TO PENSECOLA OR YOUR

SON CAN GO TO WASHINGTON, D.C.,

IF YOU DON'T DO THAT SOMETHING

NEEDS TO CHANGE.

I TELL PEOPLE IT WAS THE HARDEST

DECISION, BUT THE EASIEST.

TODAY HE IS DEALING WITH A

DIFFERENT ISSUE BEING THE

PUNCHING BACK FOR CONSERVATIVES

ON THE FAR RIGHT.

I HAVE COMMITTED THE SIN FOR

NOT JUDGING PEOPLE FOR WHAT THEY

BELIEVE.

IT DRIVES THEM NUTS THAT HE

IS CHUMMY WITH MANY IN THE

PRESIDENT OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

JESUS DIDN'T HANG OUT WITH

THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS OR THE

PEOPLE THAT PATTED HIM ON THE

BACK, HE HUNG OUT WITH THE TAX

COLLECTORS AND OTHERS HAD

CONTEMPT FOR.

HE BREAKS PARTY RANKS.

REMEMBER WHEN REPUBLICAN

GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE WELCOMED

PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR A HURRICANE

PHOTO OP.

SCARBOROUGH HAD NO PROBLEM.

CHRIS CHRISTIE WAS DOING HIS

JOB, YOU KNOW WHAT, HE SHOULD BE

SALUTED FOR IT.

ADDING MORE FUEL TO THE FIRE,

NEWTOWN MASSACRE.

FOR THE SAKE OF MY FOUR

CHILDREN AND YOURS, I CHOOSE

LIFE AND CHANGE.

THAT STOKED THE FLAMES WHEN A

GUY WITH THE STELLAR NRA RATING

CHANGED.

IT IS NOT A GUN PROBLEM.

IT IS A PERSON DOING THAT.

ANY BATTLE HE HAS WITH THE

RIGHT IS ABOUT HOW TO WIN

ELECTIONS.

HE CONTENDS THOSE SIDING WITH

SCREAMING RADIO TALK SHOW HOSTS

WON'T BE PART OF THE WINNING

TICKET.

MOST OF THESE GUYS COULDN'T

BE ELECTED DOGCATCHER.

GETTING AN AUDIENCE ON RADIO AND

WINNING ELECTIONS, COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT THINGS.

THE MILLIONS LABEL HIM A

DREADED RHINO.

I MAYBE A RHINO IN 2013, I AM

FOCUSSED ON WINNING.

RONALD REAGAN WAS CONSERVATIVE

IED LOGICALLY AND MODERATE.

WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WE HAVE

HAVE TO REACH OUT TO PEOPLE THAT

DON'T USUALLY VOTE REPUBLICAN.

SCARBOROUGH CALLS OUT THE

OTHER SIDE, TOO WHETHER IT IS

REPRIMANDING TOP DEMOCRATS.

BARACK OBAMA, NANCY PELOSI,

ARE OUT OF TOUCH.

ANSWER MY QUESTION!

SCARBOROUGH WILL CALL OUT THE

MEDIA WHEN THERE WAS INITIAL

RELUCTANT TO LINK BOSTON BOMBING

TO TERRORISM.

CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THEY WERE

RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS LIKE

MCVEIGH, WE WOULD STILL BE

HEARING IT TODAY.

I WATCH FOX NEWS.

IT IS LIKE I HAVE JUMPED INTO A

WARM SWIMMING POOL.

ACTUALLY THE WATER ANALOGY

WORKS WELL TALKING ABOUT 4:00

A.M. WAKE UP CALLS AND GRIND OF

MORNING TELEVISION.

I FEEL LIKE I AM ON THAT

RAFT.

IT ALWAYS KNOCKS ME BACK.

IT HASN'T STOPPED HIM FROM

HOSTING A VERY POPULAR MORNING

SHOW.

INFLUENCERS WATCH THIS SHOW.

THEY DO SO BECAUSE OF BEING A

RECENT CONSERVATIVE ON A LIBERAL

NETWORK.

THAT PLAYS OUT ON ANOTHER STAGE,

HE LOVES PLAYING THE GUITAR.

HIS IDOL?

PAUL MCCARTNEY.

HE WAS THE SANE RATION OF THE

BEATLES.

AND OH, BY THE WAY, THAT IS

EXACTLY THE MESSAGE SCARBOROUGH

IS TRYING TO PREACH TO HIS

CONSERVATIVE FRIENDS.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, NEW YORK.

THE GLOK BLOCK.

WHY ONE NEIGHBORHOOD IS REFUSING

TO DIAL 911.

AN OREGON GRANDMA TAKING

MATTERS INTO HER OWN HANDS AFTER

THIEVES RAN OFF WITH HER

PROPERTY.

SURE, I WOULD HAVE CAUGHT

HIM.

FOUNDER OF NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

GROUP CALLED GLOK BLOCK.

A ROBBER STOLE A STATUTE FROM

HER FRONT YARD.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE HE WOULD

BE SO BRAZEN.

MY STATUTE TODAY, CHILD

TOMORROW.

GLOK HAD A BETTER RING.

IF YOU COME IN MY HOME, I

WILL SHOOT YOU.

WHEN I KNOW YOU DO THE RIGHT

THING, YOU PUT YOUR LIFE IN

DANGER.

MORE THAN A DOZEN OTHER

NEIGHBORS HAVE JOINED.

DON'T MESS WITH THAT

NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO

SHASHAWNA OUR PRODUCER, IT IS

HER LAST DAY.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, PRAY FOR

YOU.
