7:44 am
they say they want lawmakers to pass a series of bills for more affordable housing. one of the measures would ask voters to approve a $4 billion bond. the money would help to build housing for homeless, seniors and veterans.>> working families living in their cars, we have a crisis. >> until the dynamic at the local government level is changed and they become more accommodating to housing we will fall short of what we need for working-class people to afford a home. >> california governor jerry brown has to sign off on the proposal. if he does it could be on next year's ballot. the talk about the housing crisis and the reason why this is moving so slowly, despite big pressure, david chiu is here. this was supposed to be voted on last weekend it wasn't. is at the hike that has people? were new regulations that would require smaller cities to build more affordable housing whether they wanted to or not? >> it has worked for -- were to remember this is the first time in many years that the
7:45 am
legislator is grabbing -- grappling with housing and folks were surprised they were taking on a significant topic at this point but the reality is we have millions of californians struggling to pay the rent with the highest number of homeless folks on the streets. san francisco and the bay area has been the epicenter. legislature knows we need to act and we're coming to terms with what a package would look like. >> that package would include a bond which we would put out there which is basically we would pay it back with taxes. that money would go to what? >> it we go to a wide spectrum. it would go for build affordable housing and help build workforce housing. veterans and the spectrum of needs that we have. a bond is money for a few years but not much longer. >> it is geared towards the affordable end of the spectrum. >> it does create incentives to bill workforce housing. the middle-class folks who haven't been able to find
7:46 am
housing options. >> that is the group that is left out. in san francisco for example when you are a supervisor and approving apartment complexes you would say we will have a certain amount set aside for low income. that would rise the price for the rest of the units in the building and we would have rich people and people that weren't and the people in the middle with no place to go. >> that's right. when you have teachers and nurses and firefighters driving hours to get to work in different cities, we need to address that. in san francisco and california we also try to figure out how to build more housing not just at the low-end of the market but at all parts of the market. we need to streamline the housing to make it build faster. >> the second part would be a $75 fee on most real estate transactions aside from home sales. if i was refining -- refinancing, i would pay 75. on a 30 year mortgage that is a

7:48 am
gentrification. you guys are proposing densification. making new communities more dense. >> we are in the midst of the most intense housing crisis. we have millions of californians suffering and we have to build housing at every level of affordability and doing that means putting housing in different cities and not just san francisco and san jose but all cities and towns between us. that will require change.>> with you like it or not the governor says. this has controversy. raising taxes is never good and never easy. telling suburban communities what they will have to do. is that what lawmakers are stalling on? >> when we are in our districts our lawmakers see homelessness on streets and hit we hear from constituents who can't pay the rent or are being forced out.

8:13 am
policy. protesters are already making their views down. people in texas held a rally to celebrate a partial victory because a judge blocked a state law designed to get police more involved in immigration enforcement. there is a big concern about the state of dac a. it enables undocumented immigrants who came as children to avoid deportation. >> i am scared and nervous.>> the president plans to announce on tuesday whether he is keeping the program. cbs said president trump already decided to end it. house speaker paul ryan and other republicans are urging him to hold off. a number of entrepreneurs and business leaders from across the country have written a letter to president trump calling on his intent to preserve dac a. joining us to talk about the future of the aca is mark sonja from the east bay.
8:14 am
if the president decided to keep the program there's no guarantee it would stay in place. 10 attorney general's are saying they will file suit to overturn it. >> it could be out of his hands if they file a lawsuit. the threat is they would. it would force his decision led by the attorney general of texas. >> what we have is this entire idea of allowing children who were brought here illegally by their parents to remain because this is the only country they know. this is an emotional issue. even republicans are concerned about this. for these kids that are here. it's going to be crisis time and what is congress going to do because you guys make the call in immigration law. >> bipartisan bills that would make it legal. so the threat would go away. if the lead bill is in the senate it is by a democrat from
8:15 am
illinois and senator lindsey graham. >> you have bipartisan support so if the president does do away with the program or if the courts -- do you think congress will pass? >> it would be good if they did. this was triggered by the inability to pass. two sessions ago there was a bipartisan bill with eight republicans and four democrats and never got a hearing in the house that would've taken care of this problem and also -- >> why is it tough to get to the house. why does the house not want to talk about it if house speaker paul ryan who is the head of the republicans says we don't want to end the program. why is it hard to get anybody to hear it. >> because house republicans in my view are controlled by very wealthy donors outside who don't want this to go through and have funded a lot of information disinformation. >> a lot of corporations want the wealthy people -- immigration is we have businesses want to have that supply of the workforce.
8:16 am
>> if you look at the history, wealthy donors and white house chief strategist steve bannon, they thought this was a wedge issue and used it to drive people to vote for the candidates and a lot of people in the republican caucus don't want to be record. >> a lot of democrats don't want to put limits on future immigration because this would require to say that if you got here before 2012 you would be covered but people subsequent to that, we have to drive line. >> the problem is congress doesn't function as majority parties do. i have been the majority in the legislature in california and you set the rules. they don't want to have a vote. democrats have different opinions and i think immigration reform is past. you have over 800,000 kids here that were brought by parents and didn't do anything wrong. 217,000 here. they don't know -- they don't have family in mexico. are you
8:17 am
to put them back and they are all contributing.>> the solution is congress doing it right. and my history on this issue is that i have republicans that say we don't want them here and i have democrats who say we don't want to put limits on people coming here. >> congress is dysfunctional and that is largely in the hands of the majority party. put the bill up and have committee hearings and what senator mccain wants and people are held accountable. >> democrats got together with parts of the republicans and they would be the majority. >> republicans adhere to the hassett world. if they don't bring a bill up unless they have majority vote in the republican caucus. speaker boehner left because the idea of working together is prohibited by the rules in the republican caucus. >> do you think this is enough to bust up the hazard rural? >> i would hope so.
8:18 am
that is why elections are there. >> if there is enough pressure from the public the polls say that 78% of americans think this is unfair with what they are trying to do and if there is enough pressure hopefully they respond and congress will work and people held on the record and voting for or against it. >> when you say this is what they are going to do are you talking about the president or the courts? we have -- this is a gap in law. we are unable to pass a law and the president signed -- the problem is still there. do you think there is a solution? >> yes. we had a bill two sessions ago and he bill right now that would make this legal. the majority party has to let the bill be heard and people are held accountable. that is the problem is you have the majority were party --
