TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

YOUNG, HEALTHY, AND NOT

ENROLLING WHY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION NEEDS MORE

MILLENNIALSS TO SIGN UP AND

SOON.

HOW DRONE TECHNOLOGY IS

CHANGING THE FACE OF MODERN

WARFARE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

AND WE'LL TAKE A TOUR OF TENT

CITY HOME OF TWO MILLION

REFUGEES.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

MORE THAN SIX MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE NOW ENROLLED IN INSURANCE

UNDER THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH

CARE PLAN WITH THE DEADLINE DAYS

AWAY, THE WHITE HOUSE HAS SEEN A

SURGE IN ENROLLMENT.

THE ADMINISTRATION HAS HAD

TROUBLE GETTING YOUNG AND

HEALTHY PEOPLE SIGNING UP.

JENNIFER WISHON EXPLAINS.

TWENTY-YEAR THOMAS LLOYD

WON'T BE WORRIED FOR A LONG

TIME.

THANKS TO 'OBAMACARE,' I AM

COVERED TILL 26.

THAT IS WHY THEY ARE NOT

SIGNING UP IN WHAT WAS SUPPOSED

TO BE A FINAL MOMENT, THEY PUT

ON A MARCH MADNESS FULL PRESS.

HI, WELCOME TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF BETWEEN TO FRIENDS.

THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN

WORKING OVERTIME TO WIN OVER

YOUNG PEOPLE.

TO GET THEM ENGAGED IN HEALTH

CARE AND THE PROCESS, YOU HAVE

TO CONVINCE THEM THIS IS

IMPORTANT FOR THEIR HEALTH AND

FINANCIAL WELL BEING.

DANIEL COX STUDIES THIS

GENERATION.

THIS GROUP HELPED PUT PRESIDENT

OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND

MILLENNIALSS SUPPORT A STRONG

ROLE IN GOVERNMENT.

ONLY ABOUT A QUARTER OF THOSE

ENROLLED IN 'OBAMACARE' ARE

BETWEEN 18-34.

PEOPLE LEAST LIKELY TO SIGN

UP FOR ACA ARE YOUNG AND WHITE.

IT IS MORE OF A POLITICAL REASON

THAN ECONOMIC REASON.

IT IS THE ECONOMICS THAT HAVE

THE WHITE HOUSE COURTING THEM.

IT IS TO HELP OFFSET THE COST OF

THE OLDER SICK AMERICANS SURE TO

DOMINANT THE HEALTH INSURANCE

POOL.

SO THE FINANCIAL OUTLOOK IS

VERY, VERY BAD FOR PEOPLE

ENROLLED IF THEY DO NOT GET A

SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF PEOPLE.

YOUNG HEALTHY PEOPLE HAVE

LITTLE INCENTIVE TO JOIN.

IN MANY CASES THEY CAN'T AFFORD

IT EVEN IF THEY WANTED TO.

ON 17 DIFFERENT OCCASIONS,

THE PRESIDENT SAID THEY WOULD

EXPERIENCE A REDUCTION AND

AMERICAN FAMILIES TYPICALLY

WOULD SEE 2500 DOLLAR REDUCTION.

NONE APPEARS TO BE COMING TRUE.

WE ARE LOOKING AT MUCH HIGHER

PREMIUMS.

SOME WILL BE HIGHER IF MORE

HEALTHY YOUNG PEOPLE DON'T SIGN

UP.

WHITE HOUSE HOPES IT WILL MAKE

UP FOR LOST TIME BY EXTENDING.

NO QUESTION WE GOT OFF TO A

BAD START AND ON IT.

CRITICS SAY IT IS A LONG LINE

OF EXAMPLES OF HOW THE LAW IS IN

DISARRAY.

PATRICE LEE OF GENERATION

OPPORTUNITY WORKS TO PROMOTE

ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR

MILLENNIALS.

PATRICE, YOUNG AND HEALTHY

PEOPLE NEED TO SIGN UP.

WHAT IS THE ADMINISTRATION'S

NEXT STEP TO TRY TO MAKE IT

WORK?

WE HAVE SEEN THE

ADMINISTRATION PUT ON A

DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO GET AS MANY

YOUNG PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.

MARCH MADNESS, LEBRON JAMES AND

COACHES TO DO ONLINE

ADVERTISEMENTS AND IF THE

BROSURANCE ADS OR YOUNG WOMEN

LOOKING FOR HOOK UPS.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND US.

WHAT THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND, WE

REALIZE 'OBAMACARE' IS A BAD

DEAL.

MILLIONS UNDER AGE 27 ARE

STILL COVERED UNDER THEIR

PARENT'S PLAN.

HOW HAS THAT EFFECTED THE

PROJECTED NUMBERS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN'T PUT

THEIR ADULT CHILDREN ON THEIR

'OBAMACARE' PLANS.

THIS IDEA THEY ARE ALL COVERED

IS ACTUALLY NOT TRUE.

THERE ARE A LOT OF FAMILIES THAT

CAN'T AFFORD TO DO THAT.

THE ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO

TRY TO REACH OUT TO THE YOUNG

PEOPLE AND THEY REALIZE THE RISE

IN PREMIUMS AND HEALTH CARE

COSTS IS NOT AFFORDABLE.

WE HAVE SEEN YOUNG PEOPLE LOSE

THEIR COVERAGE BECAUSE OF

'OBAMACARE.' STUDENTS AT

HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES IN

MARYLAND AND COMMUNITY COLLEGES

IN NEW JERSEY.

YOUNG PEOPLE REALIZE IT IS

COSTING THEM.

PATRICE, ARE MILLENNIALS

BECOMING DISILLUSIONED WITH

OBAMA?

THEY ARE EXPERIENCING BUYER'S

REMORSE.

LAST DECEMBER, HARVARD RELEASED

A STUDY LOOKING A PERCEPTIONS OF

MILLENNIALS.

THEY ARE SAD THE PRESIDENT

HASN'T DELIVERED ON WHAT HE

PROMISED THEM.

SOME WOULD REMOVE THE PRESIDENT

LOOKING SPECIFICALLY AT

'OBAMACARE,' 57% OF MILLENNIALS

DISAPPROVE OF 'OBAMACARE.' THIS

IDEA YOUNG PEOPLE ARE WELCOME TO

THE IDEA IS NOT TRUE.

WHAT THEY ARE WELCOME TO IS WHAT

THEY WANT TO SEE IF THEY GET

SOMETHING AFFORDABLE.

COVERAGE RESPONSIBLE AND

AFFORDABLE.

CONSIDERING THEY CAN'T FIND JOBS

AND SHOULDERING SERIOUS STUDENT

LOAN DEBT.

NO. 1 CONCERN IS FINDING A JOB.

UNFORTUNATELY THE PRESIDENT AND

ADMINISTRATION IS NOT FOCUSSED

ON THAT. OKAY.

PATRICE LEE, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

INSIGHTS.

59% OF AMERICANS DISAPPROVE

OF PRESIDENT OBAMA.

THAT IS THE HIGHEST EVER.

ONLY 41% APPROVE OF THE

PRESIDENT.

A BIG PART IS MR. OBAMA'S

FOREIGN POLICY.

57% DISAPPROVE ON HOW THE

PRESIDENT HANDLED UKRAINE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA MET POPE

FRANCIS AT THE VATICAN TODAY.

SOME OBSERVERS BELIEVE THE POPES

POPULARITY WILL BOOST THE

PRESIDENT'S SHRINKING

FAVORABILI

FAVORABILITY.

THE POPE IS AN OUTSPOKEN

SUPPORTER OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

ISRAELI AGENCY IS CHARGE OF

PLANS THE TRIP IS ON STRIKE.

WORKERS ARE DEMANDING BETTER

WAGES AND WORKING CONDITIONS.

STRIKE HAS ALREADY CLOSED 100

ISRAELI EMBASSIES AND OFFICIAL

FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS

WARNING IF IT CONTINUES, ISRAEL

WILL BE REMOVED IN MAY.

THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT IS

ASSURING THE POPE'S VISIT WILL

NOT BE DISRUPTED.

DRONES HAVE CHANGED THE

LANDSCAPE OF MODERN WARFARE.

MANY FOCUS ON DEADLY AIR

STRIKES, THE ISRAELI MILITARY IS

USING THEM TO SAVE LIVES.

UNMANNED ARIAL STRIKES.

WE HAVE COMMUNICATION WITH

THE GROUND TROOPS TO TALK

DIRECTLY TO THE FORCES AND GIVE

THEM THE RIGHT PLACES TO GO OR

FIRE OR HIDE IF NECESSARY.

THE ISRAELI AIR FORCE CALLING

OFF AN AIR STRIKE BECAUSE

PALESTINIAN CHILDREN ARE PLAYING

SOCCER BY THE INTENDED TARGET.

CAPTAIN N IS A DRONE OPERATOR.

WE HAVE HIDDEN HIS IDENTITY FOR

SECURITY REASONS.

IT IS TO DISTINGUISH

TERRORISTS FROM CIVILIANS.

MOST OF THE ENEMY TECHNIQUES

HERE IN THE REGION IS TO OPERATE

FROM SICILIAN AREAS.

WE DON'T WANT TO HURT CIVILIANS.

DRONES ALSO CAPTURE ALL THE

ACTION ON VIDEO.

THAT LEVELS THE PUBLIC RELATIONS

PLAYING GROUND WHEN THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY ACCUSE

IT OF WRONGDOING.

WE CAN SEE CLEARLY, ISRAEL

CAN SEE EVERYTHING YOU COULD

THINK THAT YOU WANT TO SEE.

I COULD DISTINGUISH IF THE MAN

HAS A RED SHIRT OR SMOKING A

CIGARETTE OR SUNGLASSES OR A

HAT.

IN 2012, ISRAEL LAUNCHED

PILLAR DEFENSE IN RESPONSE TO

ROCKET ATTACKS FROM INSIDE THE

GAZA STRIP.

MUCH WAS CAPTURED BY DRONES.

INSTEAD OF WHAT YOU HEAR, THE

ISRAELI ARMY USED IS BEING USED

ONLY FOR LOGICAL AND SAFETY

MEASURES IN COMBAT.

HERE WE SEE PALESTINIAN

ROCKETS LAUNCHED AT ISRAEL AND

BECAUSE A MOTORCYCLE ENTERS THE

ROAD.

CAPTAIN N SAYS MORALITY ALSO

COMES WITH A PRICE.

WE CAN'T REALLY HEAT AND

DESTROY THE TARGETS AND THE

PEOPLE WE WANT TO DESTROY.

WE CONSIDER THE POPULATION AND

PEOPLE AROUND THOSE KIND OF

TERRORISTS.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JUDAEAN DESERT FLUCHLT NEW

BAD WEATHER HAS GROUNDED

SEARCH PLANES AFTER A SATELLITE

SPOTTED 300 SATELLITES OBJECTS

BY SATELLITE.

MALAYSIAN OFFICIALS SAY IT WENT

DOWN IN THE INDIAN OCEAN.

U.S. CONGRESS IMPOSING

HARSHER SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA OVER

ANNEXATION OF CRIMEA PENINSULA.

THAT COMES AFTER UNITED NATIONS

ASSEMBLY -- MEANWHILE UKRAINE'S

PRIME MINISTER IS MAKING AN

APPEAL FROM THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY.

WE NEED TECHNICAL SUPPORT TO

MODERNIZE IT AND BE READY, NOT

JUST TO FIGHT, BUT BE READY TO

WIN.

LAST WEEK U.S. AND EUROPEAN

UNION IMPOSED TRAVEL BANS AND

ASSET FREEZES ON TWO DOZEN

OFFICIALS.

VISA AND MASTERCARD PULLED THEIR

SERVICES FROM SOME RUSSIAN

BANKS.

COMING UP, DIGGING THROUGH

THE MUDDY DEBRIS, HOW RECOVERY

CREWS ARE STILL WORKING AT THE

SCENE OF THE DEADLY LANDSLIDE.

FRANTIC SEARCH TO FIND

SURVIVORS OF A DEADLY MUDSLIDE

IN WASHINGTON STATE CONTINUES.

AT LEAST 25 KILLED AND MANY

STILL MISSING AS A SMALL

COMMUNITY PRAYS FOR A MIRACLE.

SIX DAYS AFTER A MASSIVE

COMMUNITY -- A CATASTROPHIC

LANDSLIDE.

I SERIOUSLY DOUBT ANYONE WHO

LIVED THERE KNEW THERE WERE

SLIDES.

HUNDREDS OF RESCUE CREWS USING

DOGS, HELICOPTERS, BULLDOZERS

SCOUR THE HILLSIDE.

WE CAN REPORT 90 PEOPLE ARE

CURRENTLY MISSING OR UNACCOUNTED

FOR.

NEW ARMY OF ORDINARY FOLKS FROM

NEIGHBORING TOWNS HAVE COME TO

HELP HANDING OUT FOOD, CLOTHES

AND BLANKETS.

THEY CAN COME HERE TO PICK UP

THINGS, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

NO TICKETS OR WHATEVER.

WE KNOW YOU ARE DISLOCATED,

WE'LL DO WHAT WE CAN.

SO MANY STILL MISSING.

-- OUR COMMUNITY IS

DEVASTATED.

IT IS SUCH A LARGE THING AT THIS

POINT, WE ARE GOING TO NEED

HOME.

MOMENTS OF JOY WHEN RESCUERS

SCOOPED UP THIS FOUR-YEAR-OLD

BOY STRANDED ON A MOUND OF

DEBRIS TO AMAZING STORIES OF

SURVIVAL OF ALL ODDS.

I LOOKED OVER ONE SHOULDER

AND ALL THE TREES WERE GOING

LIKE THIS.

WITH EACH PASSING HOUR, STILL

THE PRAYERS AND VIGILS FOR A

MIRACLE CONTINUES.

MAYBE SPRING BUT WINTER

WEATHER STICKING AROUND, UP TO

TEN INCHES OF SNOW IN NEW

ENGLAND, WIND GUSTS UP TO 80

MILES PER HOUR.

BOSTON'S NEIGHBORHOOD, TWO

FIREFIGHTERS DIED WHEN HIGH

WINDS SENT A FIRE WALL RUSHING

THROUGH THIS FOUR STORY

BROWNSTONE.

WE SACRIFICE OUR LIFE FOR THE

CITY OF BOSTON.

THIS LATEST ROUND OF COLD

CONDITIONS ISN'T UNUSUAL.

APRIL SNOWSTORMS ARE FAIRLY

TYPICAL IN NEW ENGLAND.

UP NEXT, HOW ONE GROUP IS

WORKING TO BRING HOPE TO THOSE

FORCED TO FLEE THEIR HOMES IN

SYRIA.

COUNTRY OF JORDAN IS

PREPARING TO OPEN ITS THIRD CAMP

FOR SYRIAN REFUGEES.

WE ARE DOING IT BECAUSE WE

HAVE INCREASING NUMBERS OF

SYRIANS ACROSS THE BORDER, CLOSE

TO 800 LAST NIGHT.

THIS IS WHAT WE ARE EXPECTING TO

CONTINUE FOR THE MONTHS TO COME.

TO PROVIDE HOUSING FOR

100,000 REFUGEES.

THIS NEW CAMP DIVIDED INTO FOUR

VILLAGES AND ACCOMMODATING 1500

PEOPLE.

EVERY VILLAGE WF A MEDICAL

CENTER, PLAYGROUND AND SCHOOL.

JORDAN HAS 600,000 SYRIAN

REFUGEES.

THAT GROWS BY ABOUT 600 PEOPLE

EVERY NIGHT.

IT IS NOT JUST JORDAN SEEING

INFLUX OF SYRIANS MILLIONS

FLEEING FOR THEIR LIVES, MANY

COUNTRIES ARE RECEIVING REFUGEES

AS WELL.

A LOT ARE CHRISTIANS.

IN TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT, GARY

LANE BRINGS US THIS STORY OF ONE

CBN PARTNER AND WHAT THEY ARE

DOING TO HELP VICTIMS OF THE

SYRIAN CIVIL WAR.

REPORTER: ANOTHER SYRIAN

GOVERNMENT BARREL BOMB EXPLODES

ON REBELS -- INNOCENT CIVILIANS

LEAVE THE COUNTRIES IN DROVES.

MOST SEVERE SINCE WORLD WAR II.

ACCORDING TO THE UNITED NATIONS,

MORE THAN TWO MILLION SYRIANS

REGISTERED REFUGEES AND MOST

LIVE IN TENT CITIES LIKE THIS

ONE IN NORTHERN IRAQ.

FIGHTING BETWEEN ISLAMISTS

FORCED THIS WIDOW AND HER

CHILDREN -- U.N. GIVEN THEM FOOD

AND BLANKETS AND BLACKS MONEY

FOR FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.

IT IS NOT JUST NORTHERN IRAQ.

REFUGEES STILL COMING IN HERE,

THIS CAMP IS ONLY SIX MONTHS

OLD.

MANY OF THE SYRIANS LIVING IN

TENTS HAVE YET TO REGISTER WITH

THE U.N.

THEY ARE TURNING TO CHRISTIAN

GROUPS AND OTHERS FOR HELP.

THEY ARRIVED JUST DAYS BEFORE WE

MET HIM.

THEY WERE BOMBING AND WITHOUT

ELECTRICITY AND WATER.

THEY ARE KIDNAPPING CHRISTIANS.

IT IS A VERY BAD SITUATION.

HE NOW LIVES WITH HIS

BROTHER'S FAMILY.

TOTAL OF 13 PEOPLE CRAMPED IN

THIS SMALL TWO-ROOM APARTMENT.

FREE FROM THE MILITANTS.

THEY ARE TRYING TO KICK ALL

THE CHRISTIANS OUT OF THE

COUNTRY.

A CHRISTIAN FRIEND OF MINE

WORKING CONSTRUCTION.

THEY KILLED HIM AND STOLE HIS

TRUCK.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY COMPASSION

OR MERCY FOR US CHRISTIANS.

GROUPS LIKE CBN PARTNER,

HEART FOR LEBANON ARE SHOWING

MUCH COMPASSION FOR REFUGEES.

THOSE LIKE YOUNG MOHAMMED.

HIS FAMILY SET UP THIS TENT IN

LEBANON.

IT LEAKED.

A HEART FOR LEBANON PARTNER

CONVINCED THEM TO LIVE IN A

SHE

SHED.

HE IS A GOOD BOY.

HE WANTS TO GO TO THE SCHOOL.

YOU ARE 12 YEAR?

PAKISTANIAN EDUCATION

ACTIVIST TOURS THE SYRIAN

REFUGEE CAMP IN JORDAN.

SHE AND OTHERS WORRY HIS

GENERATION WILL LOSE ACCESS TO

EDUCATION.

IN 2012, A TALIBAN TERRORIST

SHOT HIM AS SHE RETURNED HOME

FROM SCHOOL.

YOUNG REFUGEES NEED MORE THAN

EDUCATION, FOOD AND HOUSING.

MANY LIKE 13-YEAR-OLD HAMID

DESPERATELY NEED MEDICAL CARE.

HE WAS BORN WITHOUT FULLY

DEVELOPED LEGS.

ONLY ONE BONE?

STEAD OF TWO BONES.

IT DOESN'T ATTACH CORRECTLY DOWN

HERE.

THAT IS NOT HOW A TIBIA IS.

NOT ONLY DID THEY PROVIDE HIM

WITH A COMFORTABLE MATTRESS, BUT

ARRANGED SURGERY.

HE MAY EVENTUALLY WALK.

WHEN WE FIRST MET 18-YEAR-OLD

FARAGE HE WASN'T WALKING.

HE NEARLY DIED WHEN A ROCKET

EXPLODED IN HIS LIVING ROOM.

THE FALL BROKE HIS ARM AND HOT

SHRAPNEL TORE INTO HIS CHEST AND

BACK.

HE IS DOING BETTER NOW BECAUSE

OF CBN PARTNER HEART FOR

LEBANON.

I ASKED IF HE WOULD LIKE TO

RETURN TO SYRIA TO BE A FIGHTER.

HE WOULD PREFER TO WORK IN THE

CLOTHING INDUSTRY.

HE WANTS AMERICANS TO PRAY FOR

HIM.

PRAY THAT GOD WILL HEAL ME

AND I WILL WALK NORMALLY.

PERHAPS ONE DAY ALL THE WAY

FROM LEBANON BACK TO HIS SYRIAN

HOME.
