On Newswatch, May 10: Could evangelicals make or break immigration deal?, Pastor Saeed released from solitary confinement, and more. Read Transcript


TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" ARE

CHRISTIANS THE KEY TO

IMMIGRATION REFORM?

WHY SOME IN WASHINGTON SAY YES.

PLUS WHY THE IRS IS

APOLOGIZING TO SOME CONSERVATIVE

POLITICAL GROUPS.

AS THE WEATHER STARTS WARMING

UP, WE HAVE A WARNING TO KEEP

YOU AND YOUR KIDS SAFE THIS

SUMMER.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

IMMIGRATION REFORM ADVANCED IN

THE SENATE THURSDAY.

THERE ARE STILL PLENTY OF

POTHOLES AHEAD.

SOME ARE SAYING EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS COULD BE THE KEY TO

SUCCESS.

DAVID BRODY HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

DAVID: IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS

WE SHOULD HAVE A BETTER IDEA

WHETHER MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS WITH GET A PATHWAY TO

CITIZENSHIP.

OUR STAFF HAS BEEN WORKING

FOR DAYS.

DAVID: REPUBLICAN SENATOR

MARCO RUBIO KNOWS THE KINKS NEED

TO BE WORKED OUT.

IT IS NOT IDEAL.

IT IS TOUGH, FAIR AND

ENFORCEABLE.

DAVID: RECENT CLIMATE CHANGE

ON IMMIGRATION HAS BEEN

PROPELLED BY THE EVANGELICAL

COMMUNITY.

60% OF WHITE EVANGELICALS

SUPPORT PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP

AS LONG AS THERE ARE

REQUIREMENTS.

INITIALLY EVANGELICALS WERE

WAY BEHIND.

EVANGELICAL LEADERSHIP IS

WALKING IN TANDEM, WALKING AT

THE RHYTHM OF THE BEAT OF

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

DAVID: MANY GROUPS LIKE FOCUS

ON THE FAMILY ARE ON BOARD ITS

GOALS, RESPECT GOD GIVEN DIGNITY

OF EVERY PERSON AND RULE OF LAW.

THIS TABLE BRINGS TOGETHER

CONSERVATIVES LIKE MATTHEW

STAVER AND JIM WALLACE.

THEY ARE FOCUSSING ON HELPING

THE STRANGER AMONG US CITED IN

MATTHEW 35.

THE MESSAGE FROM EVANGELICALS

HAS BEEN LOUD AND CLEAR.

THE EVANGELICAL SUPPORT WANTS

TO BE PRACTICAL AND RECOGNIZE

THESE PEOPLE ARE HUMAN BEINGS.

DAVID: THERE IS A STUMBLING

BLOCK.

CENTERS ON LANGUAGE THAT COULD

BE IN THE BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW

GAY COUPLES TO SPONSOR THEIR

PARTNERS FOR U.S. RESIDENTS.

EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY AND

CATHOLIC CHURCH WILL NOT SUPPORT

A BILL THAT TURNS EFFORTS TO

REFORM IMMIGRATION INTO A

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE DEBATE.

THAT IS NOT GOING TO -- THE

MARKET WILL NOT BEAR THAT.

DAVID: SUCCESSFUL IMMIGRATION

REFORM COULD BE A POLITICAL WIN

FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

AT LEAST HALF THE HISPANIC

COMMUNITY IS PROGRAMMED TO BE

REPUBLICAN, THEY ARE RELIGIOUS,

THEY ARE PRO-LIFE.

DAVID: LOOKS LIKE A DEAL

MIGHT GET DONE.

ULTIMATELY THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE ARE -- WE'LL FIND A WAY

TO DEAL HUMANELY AND

COMPASSIONATELY WITH THE 12

MILLION PEOPLE HERE.

DAVID: DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

JACK LEW SAYS CONGRESS NEEDS

TO WORK TOGETHER BEFORE THE

COUNTRY REACHES THE DEBT CEILING

IN SEPTEMBER.

LEW SAYS EVEN THOUGH IT IS MAY,

CONGRESS SHOULDN'T DELAY.

THE UNCERTAINTY CAUSED BY

PUTTING THIS OFF IS NOT GOOD.

ANXIETY COST TO THE U.S. AND

WORLD ECONOMY PUTTING IT OFF TO

THE LAST MINUTE IS NOT GOOD.

PHIL KERPIN JOINS US NOW.

PHIL, TALK ABOUT IT.

WELL THE DEBT CEILING WAS

SUSPENDED EARLIER THIS YEAR AS

PART OF THE DEAL THEY STRUCK IN

CONGRESS TO RESEQUENCE THE

FIGHTS AND DEAL WITH CONTINUING

RESOLUTION AND SEQUESTER BEFORE

THE DEBT DT.

THAT ENDS ON MAY 18TH.

DEBT CEILING WILL BE BACK

FORMALLY IN AFFECT AND TREASURE

WILL PAY THE BILLS AND MANAGE

THE FINANCES.

DEFICIT SITUATION HAS IMPROVED

IN PART BECAUSE OF THE SEQUESTER

AND ECONOMIES FINALLY BEGINNING

TO RECOVER A BIT.

NOW THERE IS BREATHING ROOM.

LOOKS LIKE WE ARE NOT GOING TO

REACH THE ABSOLUTE LIMIT UNTIL

FALL.

SHOULD AMERICANS BE CONCERNED

WE KEEP REVISITING THE DEBT

CEILING FIGHT?

I THINK SO.

THE FACT THAT QUESTION CONTINUE

TO RACK UP DEBT IS COMING IN, IN

TAX REVENUES INDICATES THEY HAVE

MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS ON

SPENDING THEY HAVEN'T GONE FAR

ENOUGH AND NEED TO DO MORE TO

BRING SPENDING IN LINE SO THEY

DON'T KEEP BORROWING MORE.

HOW DOES THE DEBT CEILING

HURT THE WORLD ECONOMY?

ANY THREAT FROM THE REST OF

THE WORLD HAS MAJOR SHOCK WAVES,

MAJOR IMPLICATIONS

INTERNATIONALLY.

WE ARE THE KEY ENGINE OF GROWTH,

GLOBAL GROWTH WHEN JAPAN AND

EUROPE REMAIN EXTREMELY WEAK.

ANY THREAT YOU HAVE A

CRISIS-TYPE SITUATION IN U.S.

HAS INTERNATIONAL IMPLICATIONS.

MARK, IF WE DON'T GET DEBT AND

SPENDING UNDER CONTROL, THAT HAS

GLOBAL ECONOMIC IMPLICATIONS AS

WELL.

SOLUTION ISN'T RAISE THE DEBT

CEILING AND BORROW MORE.

IT IS LET'S HAVE A DEAL THAT

CUTS SPENDING AT THE SAME TIME

WE ADDRESS THE DEBT CEILING.

ALL RIGHT.

PHIL, HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND.

YOU, TOO.

DID THE IRS ATTEMPT TO

SILENCE THE TEA PARTY?

TODAY THE IRS ADMITTED IT

SINGLED OUT TEA PARTY GROUPS

APPLYING FOR TAX EXEMPT STATUS

POINTING AT LOW LEVEL WORKERS IN

CINCINNATI.

HEATHER SELLS EXPLAINS.

REPORTER: DURING THE 2012

ELECTION -- APPLIED FOR STATUS

UNDER THE TAX CODE.

MANY RECEIVED AN UNEXPECTED

BARRAGE OF UNUSUAL AND TIME

CONSUMING QUESTIONS RANGING FROM

MEMBERSHIP LISTS TO BOARD

MEMBERS RESUMES.

TEA PARTY GROUPS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY PROTECTED AND ACLU TOOK

THE CASE CALLING THE IRS ACTION

UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND SMACKING OF

MCCARTHYISM.

THESE CASES THAT SUPPORT OUR

POSITION, PAT, DATE BACK TO THE

1950S.

NAACP LINE CASES.

THEY WANTED MEMBERSHIP LISTS,

DATA, WHO DID YOU COMMUNICATE

WITH.

SUPREME COURT SAID THAT IS

INTIMIDATION.

NOW LOUIS LEARNER IS

ADMITTING WRONGDOING.

SPEAKING AT AN AMERICAN BAR

ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE SAYS THE

IRS SINGLED OUT TEA PARTY OR

PATRIOT IN THEIR APPLICATIONS.

THE IRS ASKED FOR LISTS OF

DONORS WHICH VIOLATES ITS OWN

POLICY.

SHE CALLED IT INSENSITIVE AND

INAPPROPRIATE.

THEY INAPPROPRIATELY TARGETED 75

GROUPS.

TEA PARTY GROUPS SAY IT WAS MORE

THAN INAPPROPRIATE.

ONE OF THE LARGEST

ORGANIZATIONS, TEA PARTY

PATRIOTS REJECTED THE APOLOGY,

CALLING IRS ACTION AN OUTRAGEOUS

ABUSE OF POWER AND CALLING ON

CONGRESS TO INVESTIGATE.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

JORDAN SEKULOW, JOINS US.

THE IRS IS SAYING THERE IS NO

POLITICAL MOTIVE.

HOW SATISFIED ARE YOU?

INTERESTING TODAY WE HAVE THE

APOLOGY.

WE REPRESENT 27 CLIENTS HERE.

NOW 15 WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO

RESOLVE WITH THE IRS HERE IN

D.C. THERE WAS A BAD POLICY

WHERE THESE GROUPS FROM AROUND

THE COUNTRY, 27 GROUPS IN 18

DIFFERENT STATES.

THEY ARE TRYING TO BLAME THIS ON

JUST CINCINNATI.

THESE ARE QUESTIONS THE SUPREME

COURT SAID UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

DO YOU HAVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH

FAMILY MEMBERS ELECTED OFFICIALS

THAT ARE NOT ALLOWED.

NOW WE LEARNED WITH THE APOLOGY,

GOVERNMENT, OBVIOUSLY THE IRS

KNEW OF THE PROBLEM, THOUGH THEY

ISSUED THE APOLOGY, WE HAVE

THOSE OTHER 12 CASES PENDING

INCLUDING 8 UP FOR REVIEW RIGHT

NOW, A COUPLE THAT ARE STILL

WAITING A YEAR AND A HALF TO GET

RESPONSES BACK FROM THE IRS.

JORDON, WHY DO YOU THINK THEY

CAME OUT NOW?

THEY GOT THROUGHOUT ELECTION

CYCLE.

THESE GROUPS WERE APPLYING AND

STARTED REPRESENTING THEM IN

2012 WELL BEFORE THE ELECTION,

MARCH, MORE THAN A YEAR AGO.

MOST DIDN'T GET ACTION UNTIL

AFTER THE ELECTION.

THEY SAY IT IS NOT PARTISANSHIP,

THINK ABOUT THE WORDS THAT WERE

FLAGGED TEA PARTY, AND PATRIOT.

YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT PRIMARILY

99.9% OF THE TIME CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS.

IN FACT THE IRS LEAD ON THIS,

SHE SAID, LOUIS LEARNER, SHE

WASN'T GOOD AT MATH IN A PHONE

CALL TO REPORTERS.

THEY WERE PUSHING HER TO SAY

WHAT OTHER GROUPS COULD BE

TARGETED?

SHE DIDN'T HAVE AN ANSWER.

HARD TO BELIEVE IT IS NOT

POLITICAL.

WILL YOU CONTINUE IN FEDERAL

COURT?

WE ARE DEMANDING TODAY THE

IRS HANDLE THIS NOW.

THEY ADMITTED WRONGDOING, WE

HAVE 12 OTHER CLIENTS WAITING.

THEY SHOULD BE APOLOGIZING LIKE

THEY DID TO THE PUBLIC.

THIS IS FRIDAY.

THIS IS WHEN THEY ISSUE THESE

APOLOGIES.

NOW MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

WE STILL REPRESENT OUR CLIENTS.

THEY HAVE TO TAKE THE ACTION,

THE IRS, WAYS AND MEANS

COMMITTEE, GOVERNMENT AND

OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE, MITCH

MCCONNELL, ALL CALLING FOR

INVESTIGATION ACTION AS WELL AS

ERICK CANTOR.

IRS IS FACING A NEW LEVEL OF

SCRUTINY.

JORDAN SEKULOW, THANKS.

MINNESOTA COULD BE THE NEXT

STATE TO PASS GAY MARRIAGE.

SENATE IS EXPECTED TO PASS IT

NEXT WEEK, GOVERNOR MARK DAYTON.

SAME-SEX WEDDINGS COULD BEGIN

FIRST OF AUGUST.

ONE YEAR AGO, PRESIDENT OBAMA

APPROVED GAY MARRIAGE.

COMING UP, PRINTING GUNS, THE

3D TECHNOLOGY MAKING IT

POSSIBLE.

A GANG OF CRIMINALS MADE OFF

WITH 45 MILLION DOLLARS FROM ATM

MACHINES IN 27 COUNTRIES.

BEING CALLED THE BIGGEST ATM

CYBER HEIST IN HISTORY.

THEY WITH DREW LIMITS ON DEBT

ACCOUNTS AND CREATED DEBIT CARDS

AND DRAINED MACHINES.

NO CUSTOMER ACCOUNTS AFFECTED.

SEVEN PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ARRESTED

IN THE CASE.

AUTHORITIES PREDICT WE'LL SEE

MANY MORE CYBER CRIMES JUST LIKE

THIS ONE.

CRAZY SCARY.

IT IS.

3D PRINTING IS

REVOLUTIONALIZING THE WAY WE DO

THINGS IN THE U.S.

A TEXAS MAN'S 3D CREATION HAS

A GOVERNMENT STEPPING IN.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM REPORTERS ON HOW

3D PRINTING MAY HAVE JUST GOTTEN

LEE THAN.

REPORTER: 25-YEAR-OLD LAW

STUDENT CODY WILSON HAS BEEN

WORKING ON IT MORE THAN A YEAR.

HIS GROUP DEFENSE DISTRIBUTOR

CALLED LIBERATOR.

IT IS MADE FROM THE $8,000

PRINTEDER.

HE RELEASED THE BLUEPRINTS

ONLINE.

BUT THE STATE DEPARTMENT BLOCKED

THE COMPANY CITING INTERNATIONAL

ARMS CONTROL LAWS.

CHUCK SCHUMER ARE CALLING FOR 3D

PRINTING GUNS TO BE MADE

ILLEGAL.

A TERRORIST, SOMEONE MENTALLY

ILL, A FELON CAN OPEN A GUN

FACTORY IN THEIR GARAGE AND ONLY

THING THEY NEED COMPUTER AND A

LITTLE OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS.

LAWMAKERS WORRY THEY WOULD BE

UNTRACEABLE.

ADVOCATES DISAGREE.

THEY WOULD SET OFF DETECTORS.

PRESSURE INVOLVED IN FIRING A

BULLET COULD PUT TOO MUCH STRESS

ON THE EXTERIOR.

THE BLUEPRINTS WERE DOWNLOADED

MORE THAN 100,000 TIMES.

THEY CAN'T PRODUCE THE DEVICE

BECAUSE OF LAWS AGAINST

PRODUCTION OF SUCH WEAPONS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, LOOK AT HOW TO KEEP

KIDS SAFE IN HOT CARS.

HERE IS AN IMPORTANT STORY

FOR EVERY PARENT,WEATHER WARMING

UP AND COULD MEAN DANGER FOR

KIDS ACCIDENTALLY LEFT IN HOT

CARS.

IT IS ONLY MAY, ONE CASE

ALREADY REPORTED.

LORIE JOHNSON LOOKS AT WHY THESE

DISASTERS HAPPEN AND WHY

TECHNOLOGY CAN PREVENT THEM

REPORTER: MAY 25, 2011.

THIS FAMILY DIDN'T KNOW IT BUT

IT WAS THE LAST MORNING WITH

THEIR DAUGHTER RAY RAY.

I TOOK HER TO THE CAR WITH

BRETT.

WE BOTH TOOK HER TO THE CAR SET.

REPORTER: SHE FELL ASLEEP AND

BRETT FORGOT SHE WAS THERE.

DAY CARE WAS 300 YARDS, I

DROP HER OFF, CIRCLE BACK AND

CONTINUE ON.

I TOOK A RIGHT INSTEAD.

SO OUR TRAGEDY RESOLVING

AROUND ONE WRONG TURN.

MY BEST GUESS IS THAT WHEN I

MADE THAT RIGHT-HAND TURN, MY

MIND WAS ON AUTO PILOT.

I AM NOW DRIVING TO WORK.

IT WASN'T UNTIL I PICKED

BRETT UP FOR OUR LUNCH DATE HE

REMEMBERED HE COULDN'T REMEMBER

DROPPING HER OFF AT SCHOOL THAT

DAY.

I SAID TO MY WIFE, I THINK

RAY IS IN MY TRUCK.

BY THAT TIME IT WAS TOO LATE,

RAY RAY HAD BECOME ONE OF 300

CHILDREN TO DIE AFTER BEING

FORGOTTEN IN A HOT CAR IF YOU

THINK YOU WOULD NEVER FERG

FORGET ONLY A BAD PARENT WOULD

DO THAT, THINK AGAIN.

SAD TRUTH IS ANY OF US COULD

DO THAT.

PSYCHOLOGIST MITCHELL SAYS

OUR SHORT TERM MEMORY ONLY HOLDS

SEVEN ITEMS AT A TIME.

MY SHORT TERM MEMORY IS A

GLASS, SOME HAS TO COME OUT.

OUR BRAINS CREATE FALSE

MEMORIES.

IN THE SHORT TERM MEMORY,

CHECKLIST OF THE THINGS WE HAVE

TO DO.

IF WE ARE GOING THROUGH OUR

MENTAL CHECKLIST AND SOMETHING

DISTRACTS US AND PULLS OUR

ATTENTION, MIDDLE OF A THOUGHT I

AM TRYING TO FIGURE SOMETHING

OUT, THEN OUR CHECKLIST, WE MAY

HAVE CHECKED OFF ON OUR LIST

SOMETHING WE HAVEN'T DONE.

FORGOTTEN INFANTS ARE BEHIND

THE DRIVER IN REAR FACING CAR

SEATS.

IF ANYONE HAS EVER SEEN THAT

IN A CAR, IF YOU ARE THE DRIVER,

YOU REALLY CAN'T TELL IF THERE

IS A BABY IN THE CAR SEAT OR

NOT.

IT IS NOT LIKE THE HEAD STICKS

ABOVE THE TOP, IF IT DOES, THEY

ARE IN THE WRONG CAR SEAT.

LOTS OF THINGS TO PREVENT

THIS FROM HAPPENING TO YOU.

EVERY TIME YOU GET OUT OF YOUR

CAR, LOOK IN YOUR CAR SEAT.

PUT YOUR PURSE, COMPUTER OR

BRIEFCASE NEAR THE CAR SEAT.

PUT THE TOY UP FRONT WHEN THE

BABY IS WITH YOU.

BRETT AND CHRISTY CAME UP WITH

RAY RAY'S PLEDGE FOR DAY CARE

PROVIDERS.

SHOULD THE CHILD NOT ARRIVE,

THEY WILL CALL ONE OR BOTH

PARENTS UNTIL THEY FIND OUT

WHERE THAT CHILD'S WHEREABOUTS

ARE.

EVEN NASA GOT INTO THE ACT

WHEN CHRIS EDWARDS INVENTED A

CAR SEAT ALARM.

NUR NEW WE HAD A LOCAL INCIDENT

WHERE A CHILD DIED.

THIS IS MY WAY OF DEALING WITH

IT.

THE CAR SENSOR ACTIVATED BY

THE WEIGHT OF YOUR BABY IN THE

SEAT.

ANOTHER SENSOR GOES ON YOUR KEY

CHAIN.

IF YOU WALK AWAY WITH YOUR BABY

STILL IN THE CAR SEAT, YOUR

ALARM GOES OFF.

EDWARDS CALLS HIS INVENTION A

SIMPLE WAY TO SAVE LIVES.

PARTS ARE VERY INEXPENSIVE.

READILY AVAILABLE.

EASY FOR A MANUFACTURER TO MAKE

A PRODUCT OUT OF THEM.

OTHER DEVICES LIKE THIS ARE

ON THE MARKET.

RIGHT NOW IN CONGRESS, A PUSH TO

REQUIRE MANUFACTURERS TO INSTALL

THIS LIFE SAVING TECHNOLOGY.

OUR VEHICLES CAN TELL US IF

WE LEAVE OUR HEAD LIGHTS ON SO

WE DON'T HAVE A DEAD BATTERY, IT

IS MORE IMPORTANT SO WE DON'T

HAVE A DEAD BABY.

RIGHT NOW IT IS UP TO THE

PARENTS TO PUT AS MANY SAFETY

MEASURES IN PLACE AS POSSIBLE.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

ISRAEL ANTIQUITIES AUTHORITY

REVEALED A 2,000 YEAR OLD

QUARRY.

STONES WERE USED TO BUILT --

MAMMOUTH STONES TO CONSTRUCT

PUBLIC BUILDINGS AND EXPAND

TEMPLE MOUNT.

JERUSALEM DISTRICT ARCHAEOLOGIST

SAYS IT IS TRUE THEY ARE IN THIS

QUARRY.

ISRAELIS CELEBRATE REUNIFICATION

OF CITY IN 1967 UNDER JEWISH

SOVEREIGNTY.

I WANT TO GO THERE SOME DAY.

YOU HAVE BEEN THERE.

I HAVE BEEN THERE THREE TIME.

RUB IT IN.

YOU COULD HAVE JUST SAID I HAVE

BEEN THERE.

IF IT IS TRUE, IT IS NOT

BRAGGING.

[LAUGHTER].

I HAVE BEEN TO THE HOLY LAND AND

YOU HAVEN'T.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK
