6:02 pm

6:04 pm

6:06 pm
is looking into this. melissa colorado joins us from the oakland airport with more. melissa. >> reporter: well, guys, i.c.e. says the last chartered flight took off from this airport back in october of last year. we just heard from city council member rebecca kaplan who says she's reaching out to the leaders of the port of oakland to confirm if that's true and most importantly to get to the bottom of why this was happening in a sanctuary city. while oakland's mayor libby schaaf was warning the public about a looming i.c.e. raid last year, i.c.e. was shuffling undocumented immigrants in and out of oakland international airport. that's according to flight information uncovered by the bay area news group. >> i feel like that's very unfortunate and misleading. i feel like people should be aware. they should know about this. >> reporter: the report claims i.c.e. chartered thousands of flights for eight years, dating back to the obama administration. 27,000 people took off from the airport and were deported. the other 16,000 were moved around to detention centers far
6:07 pm
from the bay area. >> surprising and disappointing. >> reporter: council member noel gallo says the port of oakland which oversees the airport, must have known this was going on for years. gallo says the flights took off from the airport's north field, which is where private jets land and take off. >> it was a private deal between the private airline and i.c.e. >> reporter: the port of oakland does not report to the city council but gallo points out the mayor nominates the board of commissioners. speaking of the mayor, her spokesperson says her office is looking into this activity to understand and address it. >> we're preaching all these sanctuary this and that and this and that, blaming donald trump. but anyways, we need to be held accountable as well. >> reporter: now, we still don't know why i.c.e. stopped chartering those flights out of oakland international airport, but an airport spokesperson says if those flights do resume they are looking into other options. that's the latest here in oakland. i'm melissa colorado, nbc bay

area news. >> melissa, thank you. a call for immediate action after the latest pedestrian death in san francisco. the victims a husband and wife visiting from the fresno area. it happened at o'farrel and taylor right near union square. the rented tesla ran a red light, hit a mini cooper, which then plowed into the couple, killing the husband and critically injuring his wife. sfpd says they're looking at everything including whether that tesla was in autonomous mode. right now they'll only say speed is a factor. this is the couple that was involved, the victims. san francisco supervisor matt haney is calling for changes including more time between when a light turns red and when the pedestrian walk sign turns on. >> what happened with this situation is that as soon as one went to red the other one goes to green and the result is that if someone is a little late and breaks the law and crosses the red they're much more likely to hit somebody. we can change that across our
6:09 pm

6:10 pm
>> reporter: just down the street police say the couple tried repeating the act at another store. this time the woman tried diverting the merchant's attention while the man went in the back supply room. fortunately, the owner had an alarm that sounded and confronted him. >> and the hope is that we can put this information out to the public and get a lead on who these people may have been and basically send the message that we don't tolerate that type of behavior here. >> reporter: danville police and the chamber of commerce are now doing their best to spread the word. they say the bad guys need to know the danville community's on its toes. shop owners say they won't be easy targets. >> they'll be sorry. everyone's going to know. they'll be caught. in the end. >> jodi hernandez reporting. up next at 6:00, accused of stealing money from his own parish. the odd and unexpected way officers made the discovery. plus, bold and ambitious

a santa rosa priest has reportedly confessed after stealing more than $100,000 from parishioners. tonight we're hearing he probably won't spend a day in jail. nbc bay area's mark matthews is at the church in santa rosa where father diaz was the priest. mark. >> reporter: you got it right. he stole money from this church according to the bishop of santa rosa. and now even though there are bags of cash in evidence the police have not arrested him, the d.a. does not have a case to investigate. father oscar diaz is 56 years old. he's been a priest for 25 years. and this church in santa rosa is just the latest of eight in sthoema and mendocino counties where he has been in charge. in a letter to parishioners yesterday santa rosa's bishop wrote, "it is now absolutely clear from solid evidence that he, father diaz, has been systematically stealing from parishes and parishioners for at least the past 15 years." >> oh, damn.
6:15 pm
you can't believe it, you know? it's unreal. >> reporter: some church members had not heard until we told them today. others were in church when the bishop's letter was read. >> the people i talked to were shocked but they also feel like i do, he's a good man and we're all human. >> reporter: according to the church, the theft of more than $100,000 only came to light because father diaz was in an auto accident on june the 19th. this is reportedly where it happened, at 101 and river road. paramedics rushed to the scene. they found father diaz's hip was broken. he was taken to the hospital. what paramedics found inside his car were bags of cash, more than $18,000. diaz reportedly told them it was his salary. they were suspicious and called the police. church officials were called. they found $10,000 in $100 bills inside diaz's office. then they went to his home and found $77,000 more, much of it
6:16 pm
still in donation bags ready for deposit, money that had been placed on collection plates during church services. now, if you or i stole 100 thousands, we'd likely be facing charges. but not oscar diaz. not yet anyway. the piche p says investigators told him that the bookkeeping at the churches where diaz was officiating is so screwed up they can't tell how much money was donated and how much was taken. the bishop is advocating for mer mercy. the individual parishes he stole from may be able to press charges. but right now the bishop says this public exposure may be the toughest punishment that father diaz faces. reporting from santa rosa, mark matthews, nbc bay area news. >> difficult for all those parishes. thank you, mark. you might have received it. pg&e customers are finding something new in the mail. the utility is sending out a notice. here it is. it's part of its bankruptcy
6:17 pm
filing and intended mostly for victims of last year's deadly wildfires. the notice warns if you believe pg&e owes you money you must now file proof of your claim by october 21st. the morning commute turned deadly after a driver tried beating an east bay train across the tracks. sky ranger flew over the collision in livermore. shortly before 8:00 a.m. the driver of that white car tried beating an ace train across the tracks. now, the force of the train brand the car around this telephone pole. an ace train spokesperson says the train was actually slowing down at the time of the crash and the crossing barriers were down. the driver was killed instantly. nobody else was hurt. well, the goal is as big as the trains involved. caltrain says it wants to make its service run on a bart-like schedule, meaning a train every 15 minutes along the peninsula. today caltrain unveiled its ambitious plan and the huge bill that would come with it. nbc bay area's ali wolfe is in san jose with the details and some of the concerns.
6:18 pm
ali. >> reporter: well, raj, caltrain wants to eventually run eight trains per hour on the tracks during the peak of the commute. and that's six more than they run right now. now, getting there, though, is going to take electricity and a lot of money. as the bay area grows, so do commute times. >> it's not very easy. >> reporter: caltrain riders are already feeling the pain. >> it needs to be a little bit more like b.a.r.t. in some ways. >> reporter: in the next 20 years caltrain expects ridership to triple to about 180,000 people a day. >> recommending a vision that can be delivered incrementry. >> reporter: today the transit agency held a virtual town hall meeting on youtube to outline how it hopes to accommodate that growing crush of riders. >> we are looking to increase our service up to about eight trains per hour. >> reporter: express trains every 15 minutes during rush hour. more trains for off-peak hours and integration with other big projects like high-speed rail. >> i think whether or not you ever use cal train or not,
6:19 pm
having the service is a benefit to the community. >> reporter: cal train is already planning to go all electric by 2022, something critical to this proposal. they also say they're going to need about $25 billion and they're not entirely sure where it will come from. >> how we hope to pay for that is through a number of resources, including grant funding, you know, hopefully a dedicated sales tax at some point. >> reporter: caltrain rider jane clark is ready for change even if it's slow. >> things take forever here because there are so many counties involved. i understand that. but yeah, i think they have to work on it. >> reporter: and the next step is this proposal will be presented to the caltrain board. then the community will have a chance to weigh in at various meetings that will be held. and if history's any guide, there might be some opposition. reporting live in san jose, ali wolf, nbc bay area news. >> ali, thank you. likely a lot of opposition along those peninsula communities. watch out for this pigeon. a bart station escalator's been
6:20 pm
out of service over weeks because of the pigeon. she made a nest with two eggs at the 24th and mission station in san francisco. by federal law crews are not able to disturb an active nest. so they waited and watched that nest every day. after a few weekends the three birds flew away. yes, they hatched. the escalator is still out of service because final repairs and a state inspection still needs to happen. back to the pigeons, you can't mess with mom and the two eggs. >> no, no, no. >> glad everybody's safe and they've flown away. okay. let's talk about our forecast. nice weather outside, and it's going to heat up, jeff. >> yeah. numbers going up anywhere from about five to about seven degrees as we head throughout this week. certainly some of the hottest weather we have seen in a long time. let's bring you in to that microclimate forecast tonight. and we do want to give you an update on the canyon fire. right now 90 degrees. winds not that gusty out of the northwest at 10. it's helping the firefighters, at least 55% contained. right near the pleasure cove campground. started earlier today.

right now at 6:30, squaring off against the squad again. president trump is ratcheting up attacks and taking another jab against four female freshman lawmakers.

the president has been calling out those four lawmakers for more than a week now. >> also, lawmakersre waiting for the testimony from special counsel robert mueller, and president trump says he might be watching wednesday's testimony. it will be broadcast, by the way, live on most of the major networks. >> nbc's craig boswell has the latest. >> reporter: president trump today on the highly anticipated testimony from former special counsel robert mueller. >> no, i'm not going to be watching. probably. maybe i'll see a little bit of it. >> reporter: the president attacking democrats for bringing mueller to the hill. >> all they care about is a phony investigation. >> reporter: mueller will be questioned for the first time wednesday since releasing his report on russian interference in the 2016 election. >> and there is an awful lot of material within the report that the american people are not familiar with which they really need to be. >> reporter: democrats want to ask mueller whether the president obstructed justice but know from the former special counsel's statement in may he's a reluctant witness. >> i do not believe it is appropriate for me to speak further about the investigation or to comment on the actions of the justice department or
6:31 pm
congress. >> reporter: republicans consider the russia report one-sided and are equally anxious to question mueller. the president's feud with four congresswomen of color entering its second week today calling the lawmakers known as the squad a racist group of troublemakers. >> yeah, i'm not going nowhere! >> reporter: representative rashida tlaib pushed back against the president. >> you are all the squad. trust me. if you support equity, if you support justice, you are one of us. >> reporter: attacks on the lawmakers and mueller's testimony, topics both sides hope help win them voters in the 2020 election cycle. craig boswell, nbc news, washington. >> our political analyst larry gersten joins us now. one question about the squad here. he continues to go at them. a poll today suggested the republican voters really don't mind as much as of course democratic voters. so will mr. trump continue to go at them? >> absolutely. as long as he feels like he's mining it and getting something out of it, he will. look, what he's trying to do is say that the squad is
6:32 pm
representative of the entire democratic party. >> which is in theory going left. >> well, it maybe going left but not over the curb. the squad is certainly the most left, if you will, of the democratic party right now. both domestically and in terms of international affairs. and he gets to use these people as sort of like the standard. even though there are a lost moderate democrats out there. >> but he's putting these four women as the face of the democratic party. >> face. that's right. and as long as he can do it he will because he's preaching to the choir. the republicans are lock-step with trump. 90% or more of republicans like what this president is doing. so given that, he has no reason not to do this. >> what did bill clinton say? it's the economy stupid. and right now economically by most measures we're doing pretty well. >> the economy is good for most people. most people. democrats would say those at the bottom have not profited. but yes, for most people. that is singularly his best argument, by the way. but this one right now he feels is even better. >> let's talk about wednesday.
6:33 pm
robert mueller will be testifying before congress. is this important? are we going to see or hear anything new or is it going to be a regurgitation of the mueller reports? >> it's hard to know. on the one hand justice sent mueller a report saying listen, stay right there, don't go outside the parameters of your report. they've admonished him, so to speak. what will he say? it's hard to know. you've got to remember a couple of things here. mueller is a process person, to use your words. he's a discipline person. he's a former soldier. he listens to the rank and file as well as the people above him and he stays in line. he may like to say a lot of things. if the democrats can get him out of the box they may get something out of it. but if they can't get him out of the box they're going to walk away very disappointed. >> any impact on the presidential race come thursday? are we going to forget about this or will there be a lasting impact from here until november of 2020? >> this has the potential to reframe the race. if in fact the democrats can get mueller to sate things that were written, you're looking at a movie now instead of a book.
6:34 pm
if they can get him to say that, this happened, there were obstruction issues, we almost indicted but we couldn't because, blah, blah, blah, if they can get him to say what's written even, it will help them. but if mueller decides to say it's already there, i don't want to add to this, the republicans are going to walk away very happy and the democrats may have lost their last chance to make anything out of this. remember something. this whole idea goes to impeachment. if they can get enough support for impeachment, guess what? over the last four weeks the idea of impeachment has gone down. 21% now versus 27% just a few weeks ago. so the democrats have to somehow reverse it. and if they don't they're going to have a lot of political mud on their fingers. >> very interesting. wednesday we will see. thank you, larry. now, we were talking about what's going to happen on wednesday. stay with us for our complete coverage of the testimony. begins wednesday morning. our coverage right here on nbc bay area begins at 5:30 a.m. in puerto rico ten straight

days of protests hit a peak today with the takeover of the island's largest city. check this out. hundreds of thousands of demonstrators closed the largest highway and overwhelmed the capital city of san juan. they're demanding the resignation of governor ricardo rossello. over the weekend the governor said he won't step down but he won't seek re-election. that's not appeasing the crowd. >> we want you out. you did enough. we still don't trust you. if you still have any respect for the island, resign please. >> demands for his resignation started after allegations of corruption, also a leaked online chat the governor had with staff members where he insulted minorities and the poor. unnerving claims today from iran. the country says it's arrested 17 of its own citizens for spying for the cia. and some are sentenced to death. iran says cia handlers trained the accused and gave them foreign passports.
6:36 pm
secretary of state mike pompeo and president trump are dismissing iran's claims. >> i read a report today about cia that's totally a false story. that's a lie. they put out propaganda. they put out lies. >> experts say it could just be propaganda and lies because clashes with the white house seem to have caused iranians to become obsessed with friction between their country and the u.s. a settlement and a data breach that impacted nearly 150 million people, but there is a catch to this. today the federal trade commission announced a global settlement with equifax that will pay up to $700 million to those who were affected by the breach in 2017. here's the catch, though. proving you were affected will be very difficult because the stolen data has never been found for sale on the dark web. if you have a strong paper trail, you can be given 25 bucks per hour for up to 20 hours that you spent trying to get reimbursed. >> these are strong measures that send a powerful message
6:37 pm
about the responsibility to those entrusted with private consumer information. >> for all of those details now, including if you're eligible for reimbursement, you can go to our website at some new fire equipment for the south bay doesn't involve hoses or shovels but it's vital in modern firefighting. last year santa clara county fire crews made national news when helping out during the mendocino complex fire. it won the sympathy of many people when a cell phone contract, their service was cut off. these firefighters, their service was cut off by their carrier verizon. today the county became the first to get $4 million in state funding for new satellite communications system. it's nicknamed moses. the m in moses stands for mobile. it can quickly provide cell service or wi-fi to them and thousands of customers. and because it's portable it can go to remote areas. up next, paying for not just that cup of coffee. the plan to charge people in san francisco for using a disposable cup.
