Democratic presidential candidate beto o'rourke in mississippi today// he says he wanted to hear the stories of families impacted by last week's ice raids first hand// courtney ann jackson has a glimpse into the visit// "thank you so much.

I'm so gla i met you."

Much of beto o'rourke's interactions with families were out of the view of the cameras as his campaign didn't allow them inside the store.

But when asked what he would say to mississippians who might ask if he would come here if not for the raids--- "i'm here because of thes raids.

I want to make that very clear.

Wherever donald trump is terrorizing and terrifying communities, i'm going to be there.

Wherever he's trying to keep people down, i'm going to do everything i can to lift keep people down, i'm going to do everything i can to lift them up.

I'm going to tell their stories."

We learned that many of the families had both parents working at the plant---on different shifts.

One man tells us his wife is still detained and he's not sure what he and his children should do.

"he doesn't have any famil here.

It's just his wife and him.

And he says his children want to stay.

His children want to stay.

It all depends what happens with his wife."

In his conversation with the tienda owner---"miedo" or fe in spanish was a word repeatedly brought up.

They say many community members are fearful to leave their homes.

"so many of those mothers i there said they feel like there's an attack on hispanics.

And i just came from el paso, tx where there was literally a massacre of 22 people because of fears of a hispanic invasion."

O'rourke says he isn't fundraising while in the magnolia state but is trying to learn from organizers how to best direct resources to the families.

"it was another dot that we'v got to connect for the american people.

That massacre in el paso did not happen in a vacuum.

This raid did not happen in a vacuum.

There is an attack on immigrants."

Beto o'rourke has tweeted several times today about his platform on items like gun control but his conversations in canton were narrowly focused on providing better resources and supports for immigrant communities like those he was in// aircraft produced at the columbus airbus plant will support customs and border protection missions// senator cindy hyde-smith announced today the award of a 59-point-1 million dollar contract to build light enforcement helicopters for the department of homeland security// the l-e-h aircraft will be used for border surveillance and law enforcement missions// you may remember last summer, a similar contract was approved to build seven helicopters for border security// those aircraft were also built in the golden triangle// first look stinger first look friday night: mainly clear and quiet.

When we come back we take a look at á3 days of peace and musicá 50 years later... 50 years ago this weekend, hundreds of thousands of people descended on a farm in upstate new york for a music festival that became an iconic moment of the sixties.

Kenneth craig looks at how woodstock is being remembered.

In my darkest hour& arlo guthrie returned to bethel new york for the 50th annivesary of the woodstock music festival.

An estimated 400- thousand people showed up for the original 3- day concert featuring some of the biggest acts of the late sixties.

A new documentary called "creatin woodstock" looks at how the original plans for the festival quickly morphed into something else.

It's a free concert from now on michael lang i can tell you who made it a free festival, the audience made it a free festival.

I mean there was no way we were going to get those crowds out of that field and back in through gates that didn't exist.

Despite the rainand overcrowding, woodstock didn't become a disaster.

Instead - it became a defining moment of the late- sixties counterculture.

Santana woodstock is about energy on cbs this morning, carlos santana - who performed at the festival - said woodstock is more than the music.

How these people were able to coexist with unity and harmony// 36:53 that's what we're still talking about woodstock a half century later& the show lives on as one of the greatest moments in modern music history and the site iteself& now listed on the national register of historic places.

Kenneth craig, cbs news, new york.

Wipe to vo and while the crowning moment of the 60's counterculture is being celebrated, members of the woodstock generation are mourning the passing of one the era's iconic actors.

Peter fonda died this morning at his home in los angeles..

Fonda, the son of hollywood legend henry fonda, became a movie star in his own right after writing and starring in the 1969 counter- culture classic áeasy riderá..

Fonda began his career with small parts in movies and television, but his collaboration with terry southern, dennis hopper, and jack nicholson in easy rider cemented him as an anti- establishment hero.

It also earned him his first oscar nomination..

He won a golden globe for best actor in 1997's ulee's gold his official cause of death was respiratory failure due to lung cancer.

Peter fonda was 79..

Fade to break spx we have one week until the high school season kicks off...until then, there are plenty of area school jamborees to help tide you over..

Let's start things off in amory... panthers taking on tupelo.... hunter jones doing what he does best..buying time with his legs..finds will mccomb across the middle for the first down..panthers drive would stall golden wave turns up the heat...david hayes rumbles into the endzone for the games first touchdown...and later in the quarter..tupelo threatening again...ole miss commit jaycob horn takes the handoff...races in for the touchdown... tupelo with the strong showing....28-7 the hatley jamboree...home team tigers taking on booneville... blue devils with the rock....nice run by davian price...making people miss..hatley pokes the ball out...but the blue devils able to fall on it..

That'd bite the tigers..because the very next play..john daniel deaton steps up..launces a rainbow deep down field....finds hunter ellis for the touchdown!

Blue devils win the jamboree 14-0 booneville running it back..taking on itawamba ahs... indians strike first....isiah chandler makes one man miss..racing down the right sideline...tackled just short of the endzone... but the thunder to chandler's lightning, anthony dilworth punches it in for six.....indians up 7- 0 booneville trying to answer...fourth and short....prince bounces one outside...blue devils would settle for three... indians pick up the win 14-3 louisville amped up hitting the field to take on philadelphia for their jamboree 1st quarter.

Quarterback camden sanders hands the ball off to michael foster who cuts upfield for a first down.

Same drive, jah- quez tims takes the toss right, cuts back left, and carries the ball for 25 yard gain setting up the wildcats in the redzone.

Then at the 1, sanders takes the quarterback sneak across the goal-line for a touchdown giving louisville an early 6-0 lead.

The wildcats go on to win by a final of 14 to 7.

The high school football tour checks-in with the lafayette commodores in 2018, the dores felt like they had what it takes to go all the way...and now after falling short, they enter this new season hungry for more ááábillboardááá the more motivation the better.

At least, that's how the lafayette commodores are approaching the 2019 season..

After falling to west point in the second round of the playoffs and finishing the 2018 season, 9-4, the dores graduated 25 seniors leaving plenty of motivation on their plate.

While some might see it as an obstacle, head coach michael fair welcomes the challenge saying that the program he's been building over the past few years makes the turnover easy to handle.

Fair: "we had a lot of goo players behind those guys that were just waiting on opportunities and they're about to get one friday night.

So, i think our seniority relies on the offensive and defensive line but we also have randy anderson coming back who's started for us the last two years at quarterback.

So it's always nice to have him back and i think we have enough pieces around to hopefully take the load off a little bit."

One of the big pieces returning for lafayette is going to be at the line.

The dores return all five offensive lineman from last year and 3 of 4 defensive lineman as well.

That component, fair says should be a major key in finding success.

Fair: "that experience i something you really can't get anywhere else.

They've been through some tough battles.

We played west point tight a couple of times last year and we felt we were knocking on the door.

We're playing such a tough district that we feel the line of scrimmage is so important."

That final game of the season against west point has stuck with lafayette through the off-season.

The dores fell short off a third round berth by just one t-d.

Now, it drives the team to make necessary improvements.

Levi lott, senior ol : "wes point put us out.

So we just messed up on about two plays right there.

This year we've really worked on executing them better.

Just looking at the little things better.

We're going through each play more seriously.

Just making sure we're going in and making our right steps.

Tavion prather, senior dl: "working on our tackling working on our gaps and all the other stuff.

" lafayette will get another shot at west point come mid- september but the dores know to get there they first have to get past week one.

Lott: "we work our opponen each day.

We want to beat our opponent each day.

We don't know what they're doing so we just have to focus on ourselves.

We have to win the day every day here at lafayette."

Fair: "what do you do ever day from that last game to this coming friday night?

That's all that matters.

We don't talk about playoffs or championships or anything like that.

We really just talk about today and are we taking advantage of every single day.

I'll be honest with you this team has done that as well as any team i've coached.

We never talk about week two we always talk about week one.

So we put a lot of importance on it.

We hope were 1-0 and you can't win them all if you don't win the first one if i've heard that before."

Lafayette gets its season started on the road against cleveland cental on august 23rd.
