On Monday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose fretted over a “contentious new agreement” to start deporting Middle Eastern refugees from Europe back to Turkey, despite the protests of “human rights groups.”

In the report that followed from Greece, correspondent Holly Williams blasted the move: “What happened here today at the port in Lesvos is extremely controversial. That probably explains the heavy police presence, the cordon that we and other journalists were held behind, and the fact we were not allowed to speak with the people who are being loaded onto boats.”
