9:03 am
the affordable care act. also overhauling the tax system. we will bring you the president's comments live as soon as he starts to address republicans there at the retreat. this is an important retreat to remember. this is the first one in a decade where both the gop controls both houses of congress as well as the white house. again, we will bring the remarks to you as soon as president trump begins to deliver them there at the retreat. here in the bay area, agencies that serve immigrants say president trump is creating a lot of fear. the canalla license serves the spanish speaking community. since election day, people have been afraid. he worries that many undocumented immigrants will go into hiding. >> that's what happens when this type of environment happens, people have a tendency to stay in the shadows. and other social problems appear with that, right. peoples are victims of crime. they may not want to talk to the police because they're
9:04 am
afraid. >> at last count, there were 40,000 latinos in marin county and half are undocumented. president trump signed an executive order to cut federal grants for sanctuary cities. there was a protest almost immediately on the steps of san francisco city hall. san francisco is one of four bay area sanctuary cities among hundreds of cities across the country that protect immigrants who are in the u.s. illegally. the mayors of san francisco, san jose, oakland and berkeley say they will take a regional approach to fight the effects of any federal funding cuts that may happen. you will find more on president trump's executive orders on there's also information about the president's call for a major investigation into possible voter fraud. just look for the politics section. president trump has said that he believes there was voter fraud during the november election. it turns out that three people close to him were registered in two different states.
9:05 am
his daughter tiffany truck, steve bannon and trees respect nominee steve. it is not against the law to be registered in multiple states but illegal to vote twice in the same election. groups concerned about voter fraud say multiple registrations make it easier to vote twice. for a second time in a week a car has gone off of the road into niles canyon creek. christien kafton joins us live from the scene in fremont with new info on what happened. >> reporter: we have new information about the driver in this case. first we're going to go ahead and show you the vehicle still here. i was just talking with keith, my photographer. and we're saying if anything it seems that the water level is getting higher and obscuring the car. the water is too high for crews to retrieve it this morning. a solo car accident around 5:00 this morning that sent the car into the water. crews arrived on scene. once they arrived, they found out that the driver had been able to get out of the vehicle
9:06 am
somehow on his own and make it to the shore, crawl up on to the niles canyon road and flag down a car. that car took him to a nearby 7- eleven where an ambulance took him to the hospital to be evaluated. this is a dangerous stretch of road. it appears that a drowsy driver may have been the cause of today's accident. . >> it's about 40 miles per hour when he actually fell asleep entering the curve. he woke up halfway through the curve. at that point he realized that he crossed over the double yellow lines, swerved to the right and lost control and ended up in the creek. >> reporter: now, as an accident in the creek on niles canyon road sounds familiar that's just because saturday it was another car with a woman that went into the water in the same area. crew wills begin searching
9:07 am
again for jada jenkins. they are hoping they are closer to finding her. jenkins collided with another car and plunged into the water on sunday. crews believe she was able to smash the window and was swept away. her car was pulled out on tuesday. you can see the water level is very high on that car. crews tell me that they believe it will be three to five days before they're able to try to pull this car out of the water. as we said, guys, the water is fast moving and it appears to be getting deeper over the course of the morning. retrieving the car will be difficult. >> thank you, christien kafton. let's bring in steve paulson. just looking at that live picture, a lot of creeks looking more like rivers. and we haven't had rain in 48 hours. >> many by the way. some are dropping but others seem to be rising a little bit. i'm not sure if they control that upstream or not. there is a series of dams along that stretch. we have breaks in the clouds. fog lifting a little bit.
9:08 am
still out there. everything is coming out of the northwest. you see the fog. cloudy skies for a while. now it is partly sunny. you can see everything is dropping down out of the northwest. these are quick movers. if this was a dry air, the system never would arrived. high pressure is really kicking in. the barometer around 3044. still we get the cloud cover. 40s on the temps. slight off shore breeze. nothing that much to write home about. cloud cover, cloud cover. it's about out of the picture right now. one more system will come in late tonight and tomorrow. but it's going to fall apart. it looks ominous but it will loss a lot of energy. thursday, friday and saturday, no rain. temperatures warming up sunday and monday. we will take this to the end of january on tuesday. tuesday night though, watch what happens on wednesday. we start to trend wetter on wednesday and thursday. i have seen the forecast updates from february 1st to february 11th.
9:09 am
they are wet again in the north bay. get the message out early even though it's five, six days away. nice weather into the weekend. we will take it. >> thank you, steve. flu season is turning out to be one of the worst. some hospitals in santa clara county are taking steps to prevent it from spreading. el camino and good samaritan hospitals in san jose are restricting children under the age of 16 to visit patients during flu season. children have a high risk of getting the flu and spreading it. at regional medical center, they're seeing twice the number of cases as last year. at el camino, three times as many. >> that's why we put the polys in place, to protect those individuals and everybody else. those who have gotten the vaccine, the vaccine was quite accurate this year. the duration of the symptoms and intensity are less. >> 14 flu deaths in california including the first in santa clara county in recent weeks. the bay area runs the gamut for best city for families to
9:10 am
the worst. an analysis by a company called apartment list. topping the study of 510 u.s. cities is flower mound, texas near dallas. vallejo was near the bottom at 507. cities were judged in categories of affordable housing and safety. there are a lot of people not happy with bart. passenger satisfaction rates are at the lowest level in 20 years. 30% of those questioned say bart is not living up to the standards they want. that is up 5% from two years ago. the biggest complaints are reliability, finding a seat and they want bart stations to be cleaner. bart officials face similar problems and always found a way to wants back. our question of the day to you is about that report. if you ride bart, what improvements would you like to see? if you don't ride bart, why don't you? rebecca b tweeted more trains,
9:11 am
cars, spaces, seats, fewer delays, and break-downs. more parking at stations. i often don't ride because i can't park mid morning. >> here, here. >> he doesn't ride because it is still not in san jose. when i travel and have a choice. >> angela: use cal trains because there are power outlets. >> it's not all bad. i have a reverse commute. seating is okay. >> we will keep checking your responses throughout the day and share them with you at 9:30. the hashtag is #ktvuthe9. the assault on a police officer in the parking lot of a 24 hour fitness that is now under investigation. one of the biggest decision in a high school student's life. the advice how to pick the best college that suits your family. also live pictures in philadelphia. president donald trump is expected to exit air force one any minute now. he has arrived in philadelphia at the beginning of a group

retreat for republicans. talking about strategy, also certainly we will touch on the fact that he signed a number of executive orders in his first few days. we see here the president exiting air force one, giving a brief wave to the crowd. this begins his three-day retreat in philadelphia. along with his senior advisors. we're also mentioning the fact that mexico's president has said we are not going to visit the white house after donald trump said you will pay for the wall. we will stay on top of the live pictures and the president's address when we come back. ?q
9:13 am
9:14 am
9:15 am
the organization works with parents and students. you say it is all about fit. this guy went to cal. maybe cal wasn't right for me. >> so many great universities in the united states. over 3,000 four-year universities. maybe it's not a great fit for your son or daughter. >> how do you know it's a great fit? you can do the tours of the campus. how do you tell. >> it is one of the toughest decisions for a young person. when you see kids applying to 20 to 25 universities which is up significantly from when you went to school. >> i think i applied to two
9:16 am
schools maybe. >> i will say something that has not changed. i remember my first day at cal i walked into wheeler hall there was a class of a thousand freshman for a big class. no one is going to hold my hand here. if you're a student who needs more individual attention, you go to a different school. right. >> i think that's exactly the point. there are students who learn better in smaller institutions. some learn better in bigger institutions. some want the sports. some want arts and drama. >> some have financial concerns. >> the cost of education, tuition has outpaced any commodity. it has risen 1,200%. we're getting news that the uc will break its six-year freeze on tuition and increase 2 and a half percent today. >> do you see a lot of patients pressuring their children to go to the college they attended. i went to stanford. you're going to stanford. i don't care what you say. >> a lot of patients would love
9:17 am
to see their son or daughter go to the school that they went to. i think a lot of parents are also like the brand. what is the most brand out there. what we tell kids, brand should be one of the components in which you consider where you're going to go to school. i will tell you if you look at u.s. news and word report and look at the rankings, rankings have nothing to do with output in terms of education. so we have to be thinking holistically where our kids will do well and get a job afterwards. >> a follow-up question to the cost of education. is it even worth going to college? do you get students asking you that? there are people creating their own companies especially in the bay area. why do i need to go and get in debt. >> fundamentally, education is an important journey for most young people. you look in silicon valley, there is definitely reason to think about other options. gap years. and the whole uncollege
9:18 am
movement which peter thiel saying i will give you money not to go to school. it is not there yet. but what is the best fit for you. >> a lot of students, a lot of people my age say i wish i would have applied myself to more scholarships. there is money to be had out there. sometimes you undersell yourself. i could never get into harvard. maybe they were look for you because they have skills that they need. >> $30 million of financial aid goes unused every year. there is money out there. frankly we're scared about the big tuitions at the private institutions. it is the private institutions that have the most money to give. down in los angeles, lmu, places like santa clara, something like 60% of the students are receiving some form of aid there. >> i was going to say you're talking about aid and financial burden. i have to mention i am a proud product of the junior college system. i grew up in livermore and went
9:19 am
to community college and transferred to san diego state. san diego state is one of the big marquee schools but it worked for me. >> and the realities of the community college system in california still provide an excellent education and a great opportunity to move to a four- year university. the challenge that we have seen as the job market has become tighter, more and more people going back to community college and getting your classes are harder. still community college is a great opportunity for a lot of kids in the bay area. >> i agree. i was one of them as well. >> college of marin. >> yes. >> appreciate the conversation. coming up on morning morn the -- mornings on 2 the 9. why the japanese chose president trump for a dog despite the comments about women in the past. details on fan fest and changes that you need to keep in mind. with the xfinity tv app,

9:25 am
say. >> we don't have anything to do with what the raiders are doing. we wish them the best of luck. they have a desire for a new stadium as well. our search and our focus is completely separate from theirs. >> okay. and then you said the free food trucks. what else can fans experience at jack london square on saturday. >> free player autographs and photos, opportunities with the players. the world series trophies with stompers. q and a sessions. we have a great kids interactive area. we will have memorabilia sale. everything is online at >> thank you. >> baseball season. >> i like it. >> we have more information about fan fest on look for it in the web links section under the mornings on 2 tab and find it on our ktvu mobile app. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, super bowl sunday is less than two weeks away. that could mean maybe some sick

9:32 am
it was definitely like really rough. i had two years pretty much having lots of foot issues and injuries and constant pain and being able to skate through those tough times were very hard for me. but i spent early this season working out my boot problems with the new boot company advantage skates. they really helped me out. and i also really need to thank my coaches, tammy gavel and nicholson. they helped me so much. i really owe it all to them for my success this year. >> karen, are you out on the ice every morning before going to school? give us a snapshot of your daily schedule. >> yes. i get up around -- since i home- school now i can sleep in a little more and i'm very thankful for that. but i'm still -- i'm a senior in high school. and i still have a lot of school work. it is definitely very hard for
