On CBN Newswatch, July 19: Why did Trump give Iran a pass?, Assisted suicide becomes legal in Washington D.C., for now, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

ONE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

CAMPAIGN PLEDGES WAS HE

WOULD RENEGOTIATE OR

DISMANTEL PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S NUCLEAR DEAL WITH

IRAN.

HE HAD THAT CHANCE THIS

WEEK BUT PASSED.

DALE HURD EXPLAINS WHY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP WAS REPORTEDLY EAGER

TO DECLARE IRAN IN BREACH

OF THE NUCLEAR DEAL BUT

WAS TALKED OUT OF IT BY

TOP CABINET MEMBERS AND

SECURITY AIDES, WHO RUSHED

TO THE OVAL OFFICE TO

PERSUADE HIM.

TRUMP AGREED TO LET THE

ISSUE GO, BUT ONLY UNTIL

THE DEAL COMES UP FOR

REVIEW AGAIN IN THREE

MONTHS, AND ONLY AFTER

LAST MINUTE CHANGES THAT

WOULD DISTANCE HIM FROM

THE DEAL.

HE POSTED HIS AGREEMENT IN

2015 TO LIFT SANCTIONS ON

IRAN WAS THE STRONGEST

DEAL EVERY NEGOTIATED.

IT IS A GOOD DEAL, A

DEAL THAT MEETS OUR CORE

OBJECTIVES.

THIS FRAMEWORK WOULD CUT

OFF EVERY PATHWAY IRAN

WOULD TAKE TO NUCLEAR

DEVELOPMENT.

Reporter: BUT

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND

MEMBERS OF HIS CABINET

REPEATEDLY SAID IT IS A

BAD DEAL, AND IT OPENS THE

DOOR FOR THEM TO BUILD

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

AN UNCHECKED IRAN HAS

THE SAME POTENTIAL TO TAKE

THE PATH OF NORTH KOREA,

AND TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE

WITH IT.

Reporter: BUT THE

WHITE HOUSE HAS DECIDED TO

LET THE DEAL CONTINUE FOR

A WHILE, AND IT SLAPPED

NON-NUCLEAR SANCTIONS ON

IRAN TUESDAY.

IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY

TRUMP WILL AGREE TO

CERTIFY THE DEAL AGAIN

WHEN IT COMES UP IN TWO

MONTHS.

AND SOME THINK TRUMP'S

BROADER VIEW ON IRAN WILL

MARK A MAJOR SHIFT IN

RELATIONS, AND A MASSIVE

INCREASE IN U.S. PRESSURE

ON THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP ALSO PROMISED TO

REPEAL AND REPLACE

OBAMACARE, BUT NOW THERE

IS A CHANGE OF PLANS.

THIS COMES AS THE BILL

COLLAPSED IN THE SENATE.

REPUBLICANS SAY THEY ARE

NOW SIMPLY GOING TO REPEAL

THE BILL.

President Trump: I'M

CERTAINLY DISAPPOINTED.

FOR SEVEN YEARS I'VE BEEN

HEARING REPEAL AND REPLACE

FROM CONGRESS.

AND I'VE BEEN HEARING IT

LOUD AND STRONG.

AND WHEN WE FINALLY GET A

CHANCE TO REPEAL AND

REPLACE, THEY DON'T TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF IT.

Efrem: MITCHELL

McCONNELL PLANS TO HOLD

A VOTE EARLY NEXT WEEK TO

REPEAL THE BILL.

BUT THREE REPUBLICAN

SENATORS HAVE ALREADY SAID

THEY'LL VOTE AGAINST THAT

AS WELL.

PRESIDENT TRUMP DID INVITE

ALL G.O.P. SENATORS TO THE

WHITE HOUSE TODAY FOR

LUNCH.

THEY'RE GOING TO TALK

HEALTH CARE AND THEY'RE

GOING TO PLOT A PATH

FORWARD.

> THE "WASHINGTON POST"

REPORTS THAT ASSISTED

SUICIDE IS LEGAL AND

AVAILABLE IN WASHINGTON,

D.C. FOR THE TIME BEING.

THE LAW TOOK AFFECT ON

MONDAY, A WEEK AFTER A

U.S. HOUSE PANEL VOTEDED

TO REPEAL THE CITY'S

"DEATH WITH DIGNITY ACT."

DOCTORS CAN BEGIN THE

PROCESS OF PRESCRIBING

LIFE-ENDING DRUGS TO

TERMINALLY ILL PATIENTS.

AND THE D.C. HEALTH

DEPARTMENT ALSO LAUNCHED A

HEALTH SITE WHERE

PARTICIPANTS CAN REGISTER

TO PARTICIPATE IN THE

PROGRAM.

PATIENTS MUST BE OLDER

THAN 18 WITH LESS THAN SIX

MONTHS TO LIVE IN ORDER TO

BE ELIGIBLE.

> UNDER PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S ADMINISTRATION,

MEDIA LEAKS ARE COMING OUT

AT A RATE OF AT LEAST ONE

A DAY.

THAT IS A FINDING FROM A

NEW REPORT ON THE

COMMITTEE FOR HOMELAND

SECURITY AND GOVERNMENTAL

AFFAIRS.

ERIC GONZALES TAKES A

CLOSER LOOK AT HOW THE

LEAKED INFORMATION IS

POTENTIALLY DAMAGING OUR

NATIONAL SECURITY.

SO HELP ME GOD.

CONGRATULATIONS,

MR. PRESIDENT.

Reporter: FROM THE

DAY OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

INAUGURATION, MAJOR

NEWSPAPERS HAVE PUT OUT AN

AVALANCHE OF INFORMATION.

THE U.S. SENATE REPORTS AN

UNPRECEDENTED CAMPAIGN OF

LEAKS IS TAKING PLACE AT

CAREER GOVERNMENT

EMPLOYEES AIMED AT

SABOTAGING THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION.

IT COULD CONSTITUTE

CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.

I THINK THE

UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF

INFORMATION COMPOSES OUR

CAPABILITIES AND NEEDS TO

STOP.

Reporter: JOHN

BRENNAN SPOKE OUT AGAINST

THE LEAKS OF CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION TO THE PRESS

DURING A HOUSE SELECT

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

MONTHS AGO, BUT THEY'VE

CONTINUE.

THE NEW SENATE REPORT BY

THE COMMITTEE ON HOMELAND

SECURITY AND GOVERNMENTAL

AFFAIRS EXAMINED MEDIA

LEAKS FROM JANUARY 20th

THROUGH MAY 25th,

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S FIRST

126 DAYS IN THE OFFICE.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

FACED 125 LEAKED STORIES,

A LEAK A DAY, DAMAGING TO

NATIONAL SECURITY.

UNDER STANDARDS LAID OUT

IN THE 2009 EXECUTIVE

ORDER SIGNED BY THEN

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.

THE LEAKS FLOWED ABOUT

SEVEN TIMES FASTER UNDER

PRESIDENT TRUMP THAN

DURING BOTH PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND PRESIDENT BUSH

DURING THE SAME TIME.

78 LEAKS CONCERN THE

RUSSIA PROBES, WITH MANY

REVEALING CLOSELY HELD

INFORMATION, SUCH AS

CLASSIFIED INTELLIGENCE

REPORTS, F.B.I.

INTERVIEWS.

AND THE LEAKED STORIES

WERE SOURCED TO EVERY

POSSIBLE PERMMITATION.

AND ONE STORY CITED MORE

THAN TWO DOZEN ANONYMOUS

SOURCES.

MANY TIMES THE LEAKS WERE

CRITICIZED.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT

THE PRESIDENT TAKES MORE

SERIOUSLY THAN THE

SECURITY OF THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

THE STORY THAT CAME OUT

TONIGHT AS REPORTED IS

FALSE.

THE PRESIDENT AND THE

FOREIGN MINISTRY VIEWED A

RANGE OF COMMON THREATS TO

OUR TWO COUNTRIES,

INCLUDING THREATS TO CIVIL

AVIATION.

AT NO TIME -- AT NO TIME

WERE INTELLIGENCE SOURCES

OR METHODS DISCUSSED.

THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE OF

FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

THIS IS AN ISSUE OF LEGAL,

SWORN OATHS AND

RESPONSIBILITIES, AND THE

PEOPLE THAT ARE VIOLATING

THEM, WHO ARE SORT OF

PORTRAYING THEMSELVES AS

HEROS, IT'S WRONG.

IT'S ILLEGAL.

AND IT'S HURTING THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Reporter: DR. STEVEN

BUCCI WAS AN ARMY SPECIAL

SOURCES OFFICER, AND HE IS

CURRENTLY A VISITING

FELLOW HERE IN WASHINGTON.

HE SAYS PEOPLE SHOULD

STILL BLOW THE WHISTLE ON

A POLICY OR PROGRAM GONE

AWRY.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE

GOVERNMENT INTELLIGENCE,

HE SAYS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

HE SAYS THE GOVERNMENT TO

CLAMP DOWN AND STOP THE

LEAKING OF CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION TO THE PRESS

WITH PUNISHMENT.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

RECENTLY BROUGHT CHARGES

AGAINST A FEDERAL

CONTRACTOR WHO IS REFUSED

OF REMOVING CLASSIFIED

MATERIAL AND MAILING IT TO

A NEWS OUTLET.

BUCCI SAYS THEY ARE ALSO

BREAKING RANKS WITH THEIR

COLLEAGUES, MANY OF WHOM

GO INTO HARM'S WAY AGAINST

ENEMIES AND OTHER

TERRORISTS AROUND THE

GLOBE.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

D.C., ERIC GONZALES, CBN

NEWS.

Efrem: TODAY IS A BIG

DAY FOR CBN NEWS.

OUR WASHINGTON BUREAU IS

LAUNCHING A NEW LIVE

SOCIAL MEDIA-DRIVEN

POLITICAL PROGRAM ON

Facebook LIVE, AND IT'S

CALLED "FAITH NATION."

*

Efrem: HOW COOL IS

THAT.

JOINING ME NOW TO TELL US

WHAT WE CAN EXPECT FROM

"FAITH NATION" IS DAVID

BRODY.

SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU.

THANK YOU.

Efrem: THE SHOW

TACKLES TOPICS WE'RE TOLD

NOT TO BRING UP AT THE

DINNER TABLE, LIKE FAITH

AND POLITICS, ESPECIALLY

THOSE COMING TOGETHER.

WHAT WILL VIEWERS BE ABLE

TO SEE?

THAT'S RIGHT.

ISSUES THAT RELATE TO

FAITH AND POLITICS.

THERE ARE SO MANY ISSUES

THAT RELATE TO FAITH AND

POLITICS, BUT BEYOND THAT,

IT IS AN INTERACTIVE

PROGRAM.

AND IT IS AT 12:30 EASTERN

TIME.

IT WILL BE STREAMLINED,

AND PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO

INTERACT WITH US AND THE

GUESTS ON THE SHOW.

THE FIRST GUEST WE'LL HAVE

ON WEDNESDAY WILL BE SEAN

SPICER, THE WHITE HOUSE

PRESS SECRETARY FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE.

AND WE'LL HAVE -- IVANKA

TRUMP IS LINED UP.

THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF.

WE HAVE TREMENDOUS ACCESS.

WE REALLY DO.

THE LORD HAS BLESSED US

WITH HIS ACCESS.

AND WE HAVE TO DO

SOMETHING WITH IT.

AND IT CAN'T JUST BE FOR

INTERVIEWS.

IT HAS TO BE A WAY TO

FUNNEL THIS OUT TO THE

AUDIENCE.

Efrem: IT IS

DEFINITELY A DIFFERENT DAY

IN WASHINGTON, ESPECIALLY

FOR US HERE AT CBN NEWS.

IN TERMS OF ACCESS FOR THE

EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY,

WHAT CAN GUESTS AND

VIEWERS, AND THOSE WHO

SUPPORT US, WHAT CAN THEY

EXPECT BECAUSE WE HAVE

THIS ACCESS NOW?

I THINK THEY'LL EXPECT

US BEING ABLE TO CUT

THROUGH THE CLUTTER OF ALL

OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA

TALKING HEADS THAT ARE OUT

THERE.

IT IS RUSSIA, RUSSIA,

RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO AVOID

THE TOPICS OF THE DAY, BUT

WE'RE NOT GOING TO JUST

DELVE IN THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE SURE

THAT THE AUDIENCE HAS A

VOICE.

AND THAT'S REALLY

IMPORTANT.

AND THE ACCESS REALLY

GIVES US AN OPPORTUNITY TO

TELL STORIES.

IVANKA TRUMP WILL BE ON TO

TALK ABOUT HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

WE'RE ABLE TO REALLY JUST

KIND OF MOVE THE BAR

FORWARD.

AND WE WILL HAVE A

SEGMENT -- AMBER C.

STRONG, ONE OF OUR

WONDERFULLY TALENTED

REPORTERS IN D.C. WILL

HAVE A REAL OR FAKE NEWS,

AND WHAT IS IT?

AND SHE'LL SAY, HERE IS

THE REALITY OF WHAT

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

Efrem: I LOVE IT.

NOW, "FAITH NATION" WILL

ALSO BE DRIVEN BY

ENGAGEMENT.

HOW IS THAT GOING TO WORK?

David: THERE ARE

TENS OF MILLIONS OF FOLKS

WHO GET THEIR NEWS FROM

Facebook, AND SO WE HAVE

TO GO WHERE THEY ARE.

AS WE'RE SPEAKING, WE'LL

HAVE AMBER AND JEN KENNEDY

ON THE SHOW AND JENNA

BROWDER WILL BE ON THE

SHOW.

IT COULD BE DIFFICULT.

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME,

EFREM.

BUT THAT'S WHAT WE'RE

GOING TO BE DOING.

WE'LL BE ENGAGING WITH

THEM, AND THEY'LL BE ABLE

TO ACTUALLY ASK QUESTIONS

AS WELL TO THE GUESTS.

IT'S GOING TO BE VERY

INTERESTING.

IT IS DIFFERENT, BUT

SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY

LONG OVERDUE.

Efrem: AND EXCITING.

I WOULD NOT BE A GOOD

JOURNALIST UNLESS I ASK

SOMETHING THAT IS NOT

SCRIPTED.

THERE IS A BOOK THAT DAVID

BRODY HAS A HAND IN ON OUR

PRESIDENT.

David: DON'T CUT

THIS PART OUT OF THE

INTERVIEW, PLEASE.

IT IS CALLED "THE FAITH OF

DONALD TRUMP," A SPIRITUAL

BIOGRAPHY, AND IT IS OUT

IN FEBRUARY OF 2018.

PRAY FOR US.

I'M CO-AUTHORING IT WITH A

MAN BY THE NAME OF SCOTT

LAMB.

IT IS A LOOK AT DONALD

TRUMP'S RELIGIOUS ROOTS,

AS IT RELATES TO HIS

MOTHER AND FATHER.

AND IT LOOKS AT HIS FAITH

JOURNAL AND HIS WORLD

VIEW.

AND WE HAVE A FEW

BEHIND-THE-SCENES STORIES

HERE THAT I CAN'T EXPOSE

HERE.

BUT WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD

TO IT.

IT WILL BE OUT SOON.

CHECK YOUR LOCAL

BOOKSTORE.

Efrem: WE'RE LOOKING

FORWARD TO IT.

David: THANK YOU,

EFREM.

Efrem: BE SURE TO

CHECK OUT "FAITH NATION"

ON CBN'S Facebook PAGE,

12:30 EASTERN TIME.

THAT IS AN ILLUSTRIOUS

BUNCH.

David: WE LOOK

SERIOUS THERE.

WE ARE NOT PLAYING AROUND.

Efrem: I LOVE IT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, DAVID.

David: THANKS,

EFREM.

Efrem: AND COMING UP,

SHE IS AN ACTIVIST,

CONSERVATIVE, AND A MOM,

AND SHE IS CALLING FOR

"TEEN VOTE" TO BE PULLED

OFF STORE SHELVES.

FIND OUT WHY MILLIONS ARE

JOINING WITH HER, WHEN WE

RETURN.

Efrem: A GROWING

SOCIAL MEDIA VOICE KNOWN

AS THE ACTIVIST MOMMY

WANTS "TEEN VOTE" MAGAZINE

PULLED FROM STORE SHELVES

BECAUSE OF AN ARTICLE

INSTRUCTING CHILDREN HOW

TO DO SODOMY.

PARENTS ARE OUTRAGED AND

ARE JOINING HER CALL FOR A

NATIONWIDE BOYCOTT.

Charlene: THIS IS HOW

ELIZABETH JOHNSON

RESPONDED TO THE TEEN VOTE

ARTICLE, "EVERYTHING YOU

NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ANNUAL ANAL

SEX, HOW TO DO IT THE

RIGHT WAY."

SHE TOSSED PAGES OF THE

MAGAZINE INTO THE FIRE.

DON'T LET YOUR KIDS

READ GARBAGE.

Charlene: AFTER

POSTING THIS ON Facebook

TO HER 300,000 FANS, IT

ALSO CAUGHT FIRE WITH MORE

THAN EIGHT MILLION VIEWS.

AND SHE ALSO LAUNCHED

"OPERATION PULL TEEN

VOGUE."

IN THE ARTICLE, THE AUTHOR

ANSWERS HYPOTHETICAL

QUESTIONS TO EXPLAIN ANAL

SEX, AND SAYS SOME

DESCRIBE AN EXPERIENCE

THAT CAN BE DESCRIBED AS,

QUOTE, "DELIGHTFUL."

I WAS SO OUTRAGED WHEN

ONE PARENT GAVE ME THIS

ARTICLE.

I COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT I

WAS READING.

THE WORST PART ABOUT IT IS

HERE YOU HAVE ADULTS

PEDALLING THIS SEXUAL

INFORMATION TO MINORS, TO

CHILDREN.

Charlene: JOHNSTON IS

NOT ALONE.

AS COMMENTATOR MATT WALSH

ALSO STRONGLY CONDEMNED

THE ARTICLE.

THE LEFT WANTS NOTHING

MORE THAN TO TURN YOUR

CHILD INTO A SEXUAL

DEVIENT, HE WRITES.

NOTHING MATTERS MORE TO

THEM THAN CONVERTING YOUR

CHILD INTO THE RELIGION OF

SELF-IINDULGENCE.

IT MAY BE TOO LATE TO MOLD

YOU INTO A LONELY SEX

OBSESSED FREAK, BUT YOUR

DAUGHTER, SHE IS RIPE FOR

THE PICKING.

JOHNSTON SAYS IT WILL TAKE

ACTION TO SAVE THE NEXT

GENERATION.

GO TO YOUR LOCAL

LIBRARY, GROCERY STORE,

GAS STATION, AND SEE IF

THEY ARE CARING TEEN

VOGUE.

AND SPEAK TO THE MANAGER

OR THE OWNER AND ASK THEM

TO PLEASE NEVER CARRY TEEN

VOGUE AGAIN.

THIS IS OBSCENITY.

THIS IS PORNOGRAPHY, AND

THIS NEEDS TO BE PULLED

FROM THE SHELVES.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: WE'RE HEADING

TO A COMMUNITY IN ALASKA

THAT HAS BEEN REVITALIZED,

ALL BECAUSE IT HAS OPENED

ITS DOORS TO REFUGEES.

SEE HOW THE PEOPLE THERE

ARE HELPING IMMIGRANTS

BEGIN AN ENTIRELY NEW

LIFE.

WE'VE GOT THAT STORY

COMING UP NEXT.

Efrem: REFUGEES ARE

FLEEING FROM TERRIBLE

SITUATIONS ALL AROUND THE

WORLD, BUT THEY'RE FINDING

FEWER AND FEWER PLACES

THAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY GO.

YET EVEN AS MORE AND MORE

COUNTRIES ARE CLOSING

THEIR DOORS, AMERICA'S

LAST FRONTIER WANTS THE

WORLD TO KNOW IT'S WIDE

OPEN.

CAITLIN BURKE BRINGS US

THIS STORY FROM

ANCHORIDGE, ALASKA.

Caitlin: THEY FLEE

PERSECUTION, POVERTY, AND

WAR, WILLING TO LIVE IN

DANGEROUS REFUGEE CAMPS

ACROSS OCEANS IN OVER

CROWDED BOATS.

THE GOVERNMENT

IMPLEMENTING THE ETHNIC

POLICY.

AND THEN FORCEFULLY

DISPLACED THAT POPULATION

OUT OF THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: THE LATEST

GLOBAL TRENDS REPORT NOTES

FROM 2015 ALONE, VIOLENCE

DROVE MORE THAN 15 MILLION

PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMES.

THAT'S MORE THAN THE

ENTIRE POPULATION OF

FRANCE.

INSTEAD OF DEVELOPING

BETTER PROGRAMS, THAT

RECOGNIZE THE HARDSHIP AND

THE DIFFICULTIES ARE THE

REASONS FOR PEOPLE TO

FLEE, BARRIERS ARE

ERECTED.

AND SOMETIMES THEY ARE

LEGISLATIVE BARRIERS.

Reporter: HE RECENTLY

REPORTED THAT THE

SPORTSCENTESPACENEEDED TO PROVIDE THESE

PEOPLE HOMES FAR OUTWEIGHS

WHAT IS GIVEN BY THE

GOVERNMENT.

BUT BEHIND THESE NUMBERS

ARE PEOPLE AND FAMILIES,

TORN FROM THEIR LIVES,

THEIR HOMES, AND DRIVEN

INTO EXILE.

HERE IN ANCHORIDGE,

ALASKA, THE CITY IS

WORKING ON NEW POLICIES TO

HELP IMMIGRATE THE

IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES

WHO RESETTLE HERE.

YOU CAN WALK THROUGH

ANY STORE, DOWN ANY

STREET, AND NOT KNOW HOW

MANY DIFFERENT LANG WAGES LANGUAGES

YOU JUST HEARD.

FOR US, THAT HAS GIVEN US

SUCH A -- CERTAINLY A VERY

DIFFERENT VIEW FROM WHAT

PEOPLE WOULD THINK THEY

WOULD FIND IN ANCHORIDGE,

ALASKA.

Caitlin: IN 2016, THE

CITY WON A GRANT FOR

INCLUSIVENESS FOR

IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES.

WE WANT TO FIGURE OUT

WHO WE'VE GOT, AND HOW DO

WE WORK WITH BUSINESSES,

WITH GOVERNMENT, AND THE

UNIVERSITY, TO MAKE SURE

WE'RE GIVING THEM THAT

OPPORTUNITY TO SUCCEED.

Reporter: THE

ANCHORIDGE LAND TRUST IS

FOCUSED ON REDOING ONE OF

THE MOST DIVERSE

NEIGHBORHOODS.

WE HAVE LITERALLY

PEOPLE FROM EVERY CORNER

OF THE EARTH IN THIS ONE

SMALL FOOTPRINT.

PEOPLE ARE COMING TOGETHER

TO CALL THIS ONE PLACE

HOME.

THE CITY IS WATCHING AND

THE NATION IS WATCHING HOW

IT ALL WORKS.

HOW IT WORKS -- WHAT DOES

HARMONY LOOK LIKE?

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES?

WHAT DO PEOPLE NEED?

Caitlin: IN ITS

EFFORTS TO TRANSFORM

MOUNTAINVIEW, THE LAND

TRUST ASKS A LOT OF

QUESTIONS, AND THEN TAKES

ACTION ON WHAT IT LEARNS.

MOUNTAINVIEW IS ALWAYS

SEEN AS A LAST RESORT

COMMUNITY.

PEOPLE WOULD STAY ON

AVERAGE HERE A YEAR TO TWO

YEARS.

SINCE REVITALIZATION IS

NOW TWO TO FIVE YEARS.

OVER THE PAST FIVE

YEARS, WE HAVE RESETTLED A

LITTLE OVER 700 REFUGEES

HERE IN ANCHORIDGE.

Caitlin: LISA TOLD US

ABOUT SPECIFIC CHALLENGES

THAT REFUGEES FACE WHEN

THEY FINALLY FIND A SPACE

TO START A NEW LIFE.

ON AVERAGE, A REFUGEE

RESETTLING IN THE UNITED

STATES HAS BEEN DISPLACED

FROM THEIR HOME FOR AT

LEAST 17 YEARS.

IMAGINE THAT.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO

HAVE A HOME WHERE THEY

COULD LIVE, WHERE THEY

COULD SAFELY SEND THEIR

CHILD TO SCHOOL, WHERE

THEY COULD HAVE A JOB AND

SAVE MONEY, FOR A VERY

LONG TIME BEFORE THEY COME

HERE.

Caitlin: C.F.S. HELPS

WITH LANGUAGE, JOB SKILLS,

AND SURVIVING THE HARSH

CLIMATE.

HARI RESETTLED HERE IN

2009, AND HE QUICKLY

LEARNED ENGLISH AND FOUND

A JOB, DETERMINED TO BE

SUCCESSFUL IN HIS NEW

LIFE.

REFUGEES WORK VERY

HARD.

ONCE THEY GET A JOB, THEY

WILL KEEP THE JOB.

THEY HAVE A STRONG

DETERMINATION THAT I HAVE

TO DO SOMETHING.

I HAVE TO COME UP FROM THE

BOTTOM LEVEL.

Caitlin: GOING

FORWARD, ANCHORIDGE WILL

CONTINUE TO EXPLORE WHAT

MAKES ITS CITY A PLACE FOR

PEOPLE TO COME, STAY, AND

SUCCEED.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

ANCHORIDGE, ALASKA.

Efrem: DOORS OPEN TO

PEOPLE IN NEED.

AND I CAN'T HELP BUT

BELIEVE DOORS OPEN TO

BLESSING AS WELL.
