california legislature has enacted a number of laws designed to intentionally obstruct the work of our sworn immigration officers. >> reporter: a 45-page lawsuit filed by the department of justice takes aim in particular at three laws. one requires private employers to give notice before cooperating with i.c.e. another prevents police from tipping off immigration agents. the third stops i.c.e. from keeping detainees in local jails. >> california absolutely appears to me is using every power it has, powers it doesn't have, to frustrate federal law enforcement. so you can be sure i'm going to use every power i have to stop that. >> reporter: the case is likely to end up at the u.s. supreme court. in the same vein that the obama administration was able to get arizona's state immigration laws overturned in 2012. >> there is no nullification. there is no secession. federal law is the supreme law
of the land. >> reporter: the suit comes after i.c.e. raids across california that attorney general jeff sessions says were thwarted by oakland mayor libby schaaf thwarted. >> if the attorney general is playing politics with the very important issue, then he clearly put a target on california. >> reporter: from governor brown. >> jeff thinks that donald will be happy with him and i'm sure donald will be tweeting his joy at this particular performance. >> reporter: in fact, the president did not tweet about sessions' trip to california or the department of justice's lawsuit. in the newsroom, andria borba, kpix 5. >> an estimated 4,000 undocumented students are enrolled at schools in the uc system and the uc president janet napolitano had this message. >> our university police will not serve as surrogate immigration agents. our students should feel safe on our campuses.
>> meanwhile, house minority leader nancy pelosi weighed in tweeting out, the people of california will not be bowed by the trump administration's brazen aggression and intimidation tactics. we will fight this sham lawsuit. >> senator dianne feinstein added, saying california shouldn't be punished for shielding law-abiding immigrants from deportation. california will stand strong. attorney general jeff sessions also took aim at the mayor of oakland but kpix 5's christin ayers explains this morning mayor libby schaaf is standing her ground and lawyering up. >> it was not my intention to get caught up in a national debate. >> reporter: yet that's exactly where oakland mayor libby schaaf finds herself in a war of words with attorney general jeff sessions over her decision to warn oaklanders of a series of recent i.c.e. raids. >> here's my message to mayor schaaf: how dare you? how dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law
enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda? >> how dare you? >> reporter: her office says after an onslaught of sometimes harassing calls to the mayor's office in the aftermath of her warning, they have finally died down and security levels at city hall are normal. but online, hashtags like lock libby up are trending along with countless tweets like this one, oakland mayor libby schaaf must be indicted for obstruction of justice. news. was also a central topic >> you think that, for example, mayor libby schaaf of oakland ought to be arrested. i do. i have a bill to do that, it clarifies federal law to say if you're a state or local politician who ignored valid federal law, this has been the law of the land for a long time, then you yourself are a ffel loan and you ought to be thrown in -- are a felon and you ought to be thrown in jail. >> reporter: she lawyered up. a lawyer has offered free services although schaaf wouldn't say what they have discussed. >> it's attorney/client privilege. >> reporter: in oakland,
christin ayers, kpix 5. >> this morning, a majority of californians say the justice department's lawsuit is a bad idea. according to our exclusive kpix 5/surveyusa poll, 47% say suing california is the wrong move. 36% think it's the right move. our survey also found 44% of californians disagree with a law barring local police from notifying federal agents when an immigrant is released from jail or prison. here in the bay area, an overwhelming majority of people say local police should assist i.c.e. when it comes to suspects involved in crime. time check, 4:36. definitely a wet start this morning. >> light drizzle now and a nice afternoon. sunny conditions. it was sunny yesterday afternoon then those clouds rolled in. barely anything popping up
really light just south of los gatos. scotts valley, santa cruz mountains getting rain. i checked some of the totals and basically none of this is measurable just yet. so not expecting to see an increase in our rain totals. there was a little cell over san mateo. also near benicia you had rain coming through on 680. 6,000 feet elevation and above right around lake level and it's warm storm so we are not going to see any of that low elevation snowfall but you can tell there's plenty of rain coming down across the foothills but that's it. so this is the tail end of the storm that's bringing rain for pacific northwest, washington- oregon. they are getting all of it. we are just getting a few areas
of drizzle. you can see the wet roads. he livermore 51. we are looking warmer than yesterday. >> look at the rain on the lens behind you. right now we are dealing with slick conditions for drivers. so if you are getting ready to head out the door, be prepared for some slippery roads and we have reports of some standing water. this is a pretty common area that we see this -- some flooding in the roads or ponding i should say. this is right as you make your approach towards the lower deck of the bay bridge. so interstate 80 eastbound direction just before 4th street reports of some standing water in some of the lanes. do look out for that. you don't want to hydroplane. opener that, pretty calm making your way into san francisco. we have a little bit of a backup over at the bay bridge toll plaza in the cash lanes. no metering lights and no major backups. the hunt is on this morning
for a hit-and-run driver who killed a bay area teenager. it happened near alma drive in vallejo around 4 p.m. yesterday. police say that for some reason a gmc suburban rolled backward on the sidewalk hitting a pedestrian an 18-year-old girl. the suv overturned. the driver fled. anyone with information is asked to call vallejo police. we now have exclusive video of a deadly shootout between san francisco police and a robbery suspect who was inside the trunk of a car. the man's family tells kpix 5's joe vazquez, he was afraid of being deported. >> reporter: in this video obtained exclusively by kpix 5, a police officer speaking spanish repeatedly tells a robbery suspect to put both hands up. look what happens next. keep your eye on the right side of the screen on the trunk of the car. adolfo delgado. nats joe: why was he in the trunk? susana: he was afraid of being deported so he jumped in the trunk. track: family spokesperson susana rojas says delgado did not fire at police. susana: my belief and the family is that he did not shoot the gun. joe: and even though the shot looks like it came from the trunk? susana: the video doesn't look like nothing. it just sounds like there was an isolated gunshot and then a barrage of shots. and what i ha rces is tha >> here's the video again. it appears the first gunshots
are fired from the trunk of the car. police fire back. [ gunfire ] >> they were giving him instructions for 10 minutes before the bullets went off. they gave him a long time to get out and, you know, to -- you know -- they wanted him to live, i know they wanted him to live. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: police say they recovered a weapon from inside the trunk. two others were arrested uninjured. we saw a police officer being treated by paramedics but officials have not explained what happened to him. >> no justice, no peace! >> reporter: demonstrators marching through the mission district identified the man who was killed as 19-year-old jesus adolfo delgado. >> what happened? we want answers! >> why was he in the trunk? >> he was afraid of being deported and he jumped in the trunk. >> reporter: family spokesman susanna rojas says the family believes delgado did not fire at police. >> he didn't shoot the gun. >> reporter: even though the video shows it?
>> um, the video doesn't look like nothing. it just sounds like there was one isolated gunshot and then there were a barrage of shots. and what we -- what i have heard from multiple sources is that it was a police officer who shot first and then the rest of the police officers shot, started shooting. >> reporter: the shooting is being investigated by the district attorney's office and the police homicide division. a town hall meeting will be held within 10 days. joe vazquez, kpix 5. time now 4:41. imagine all this under water. it could happen. this morning, the threat from the bay area's sinking shoreline. >> this bay area trail is so popular, some say it's a safety hazard. we show you the potentially perilous path.
this is the president's first california visit since taking office. >> why it's taken so long? he has been busy creating jobs, defeating isis, remaking the judiciary. >> he is the first president since eisenhower to not visit california in the first year in office. this morning, there's a threat along the coast. a new study says the bay area shoreline is sinking faster than expected. kpix 5's betty yu shows us the areas that could soon be in the flood zone. >> reporter: sea levels are rising around the bay area due to global climate change. at the same time, some areas along the coast are sinking. that's according to a new study out of uc-berkeley. it found that more of the bay area could be under water by the end of the century than previously expected. >> the map shows the area that's going to be under water. >> reporter: the report
published in science advances found the most vulnerable spots are san francisco international airport, treasure island and foster city. >> areas are more susceptible to sinking because they are built on landfills that's compacting. water is being squeezed out of the rock and that continues for many, many decades. >> reporter: the professor of geophysics used data collected over six years to create these projections. at sfo, for example, water will cover about half of the airport's runways and taxiways by the year 2100. parts of foster city including the areas near the san mateo bridge are threatened by flooding then. uc-berkeley research found that treasure island is sinking at a rate of a half inch per year! by contrast, sea level rise is climbing at 1 to 2 millimeters per year! bergman says his estimates don't take into account extreme
weather events so the effects could be even worse. >> that's terrifying! that's scary! >> reporter: jackie kim owns olive's restaurant in foster city where she lived for 22 years. >> been here for so long. i'm sure there's always remedies of, you know, how they will fix it. >> reporter: in san francisco, betty yu, kpix 5. let's check the forecast. >> it's going to be wet. so just not too much, not too much to see much ponding going on. enough for umbrellas and windshield wipers. some green showing up here in some areas. there's a few areas that -- it's a light drizzle that doesn't show up on hi-def doppler. right now east of lexington hills and north of boulder creek, scotts valley just a very, very light amount of drizzle that's coming through across some of the mountains and then san leandro just moved over the bay towards you. so you're dealing with a little rain but it's also moving fast. so once it gets there, a few
minutes later it's going to be moving out further east and here's what we just noticed it was raining in bahia and now it's moving further east probably towards fairfield. there's a wisconsin wind advisory for lake tahoe up to 55-mile-an-hour gusts so don't go out on the lake. here's the view from our kpix 5 roof cam. definitely see that drizzle out there and yes on the roads. it is wet in many areas. temperatures are warm for this hour. 54 in concord. 52 in oakland. we are usually in the 30s and 40s and now the 40s and 50s. as they set this into motion by 6:00 this morning it will wind down and be less of a drizzle and some areas the clouds will even break up.
you may see sunrise in the south bay. cloudy skies around 11 a.m. by 1 p.m. it will be sunny for the afternoon and there may be another area of pop-up drizzle this evening. but it's mostly going to be done early this morning. so not much more rain after 9 a.m. then friday morning we could get very, very light drizzle as well and that pretty much will be the story through the weekend. we're talking very light scattered showers throughout today through sunday. today our temperatures 60s around the bay. today's storm is impacting washington right now and that's why we're just seeing drizzle south of the actual system. that's what we're dealing w sun clouds later on and then by next week, that's when we are going to see a few more storms arriving. so we could get heavy rainfall low elevation snow and gusty conditions all next week starting monday night. but this round we are just
going to deal with very, very minimal rainfall. no measurable precipitation at all. by monday things will dry up and then our next system will be tuesday. over to you. i had to use my windshield wipers a couple of times on the ride into work this morning. nothing too severe but i did have to have them on. right now slowdowns westbound 580 the usual direction westbound. we see yellow and red and you can see that it's about a 26- minute ride now between 205 and 680. so for all of our "super commuters" out there, things are busy. heading into castro valley okay along 238 over towards 880 there. you shouldn't have any trouble. your ride continues to look good on southbound 880 commute direction towards 84. about 10 minutes. so easy drive times. we are in the green across the san mateo bridge in both directions and if you are heading over to sfo your ride
along 101 looking okay. here's the eastshore freeway making your way towards the macarthur maze. no big backups yet as you approach the maze there. but you will see some brake lights over at the toll plaza. no metering lights just yet. that will be coming up here shortly. hat's a check of your traffic; over to y ou. jaclyn, thank you. navigating streets and sidewalks in san francisco is bad enough as it is with all the bikes and scooters. now one supervisor wants to keep things from getting worse. supervisor aaron peskin is worried about dockless transportation. it allows customers to rent a bike or scooter through an app and essentially drop it anywhere when they're done. peskin fought to make sure dockless bike companies get permits to operate and now he is introducing a measure to do the same for motorized scooters. a trail in the south bay is like a racetrack it's so popular. some say it's a safety hazard. maria medina is in mountain view. >> reporter: the speed limit may be 15 miles per hour -- >> clearly they don't do that.
>> reporter: -- but many stevens creek trail users say bicyclists go much faster. michael and his wife walk this trail almost every day and they say they have almost collided with speeding bicyclists. >> they get really close, the bicycles. they get really, really close. >> reporter: one of the complaints is that the trail is so narrow in some parts that if someone wants to go around me, they have to pretty much go on the other side. >> there's probably four or five feet. that's not wide enough. if they don't have -- >> reporter: somebody just went around us here. stevens creek trail sits next to google, microsoft, restaurants, theater and shops. it's essentially become a commuter path for people going to and from work. >> sidestep them sometimes. sometimes you have to. >> reporter: does it get busy here? >> yes, it is. >> reporter: this woman walks the trail several times a week and says she has witnessed a cyclist crash into a pedestrian. one cyclist told us sometimes he will see law enforcement making sure they are abiding by the speed limit.
we reached out to the city to ask what more can be done before you have yet to hear from them. it's a trail of trials and tribulations for some who feel stevens creek is getting a bit too crowded. >> it's a beautiful trail. it's just you can't do both. >> reporter: in mountain view, maria medina, kpix 5. time now 4:52. mcdonald's is flipping the golden arches. the statement restaurants across the country are making this morning. >> and a creepy outburst gets a fix. why amazon needed to tone down alexa's laughter. you could save energy
people. we are a few degrees above average. morgan hill your afternoon highs 70 degrees. los gatos 70, as well. over in the east bay temperatures in the upper 60s. san ramon 68. dublin 69. san francisco's high today 64 degrees. and up further north a little bit cooler in u sky yeah, lakeport temperatures in the low 60s. jaclyn? we are tracking an accident along northbound 880 just past washington avenue. it's not blocking any lanes. looks like the car smacked into the center divide but you may see some activity as you are heading through san leandro and then a little further north we are tracking some delays due to some overnight roadwork. speeds dip down to 35 miles per hour heading into oakland. so do be prepared for a few slowdowns. some new restaurants are coming to mineta san jose airport including chik-fil-a, shake shack and trader vic's. the san jose city council approved a contract to expand the airport's dining options. the great american bagel and a new craft brewery are also coming to mineta. this morning, a mcdonald's in los angeles county is
flipping more than just burgers. this restaurant in lynwood has flipped its iconic golden arches. look at that. it turned the logo upside-down to make a w. this is in honor of international women's day today. about 100 other restaurants across the country are expected to do the same for the day. amazon says it's releasing a fix for a creepy flaw with its virtual assistant alexa. [ laughing ] >> social media has been buzzing with reports of spontaneous laughter from alexa-enabled devices. amazon said the device had mistakenly been hearing the phrase alexa laugh. so from now on users will have to ask alexa, can you laugh? that should prevent any unintended giggles. we both have one. >> i have one but it's unplugged and if i ever heard the alexa laugh, it would be in the trash. >> gotcha. >> it's scary. >> i love my alexa. you can play everything, you can turn off the lights. but i haven't heard it laugh quite yet.
i'm going to keep it. >> it's creepy. it's 4:56 right now. the fight over sanctuary laws in california is headed to court. why leaders say the feds have no case. >> reporter: and now a war of words between oakland mayor libby schaaf and attorney general jeff sessions. i'll have those details coming up.
and i'm kenny choi. let's start with a live look outside... rning rush is good morning, everyone. it's thursday, march 8th. i'm michelle griego. >> i'm kenny choi. let's head outside take a look at the conditions on this thursday morning. i kind of forgot which day it was. >> it's almost friday! >> wow, yes. the countdown begins! a live look at some of the traffic in san jose. on the right 101 near the trimble exit. things looking good there. jaclyn of course will have your full recap of what's happening on the roads. and on the left, shot of the bay bridge. you can see a little bit of condensation on the lens there i think. we had a little wet start this
morning. >> drizzle on my windshield. >> had to wipe it off a little. that's all we're dealing with. not too big of a rainmaker, not even any measurable precipitation yet but just enough to be a nuisance out there and yes you will want to take your time, make sure you are safe on the roads. 50s in the area now. feeling comfortable but yes, a little damp out there. here's a look at hi-def doppler. you can see it's very minimal rainfall throughout our area. we are noticing cloud coverage but you will also get a break in the clouds later on especially. so just east of san jose, milpitas, right along the mountain range there's a light drizzle not turning into snow like we saw last week at all because is
