of this administration to maintain family unity including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources. the order continues, it is unfortunate that congress' failure to act and court orders have put the administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law. >> we get the new developments now from ktvu's alyana gomez. she is live in our newsroom tonight. alyana. >> reporter: mounting pressure from the world and even the first lady, president trump reverses course to stop family separations at the border after initially blaming democrats and calling on congress to fix it. >> we are going to have a lot of happy people. >> reporter: with the stroke of a pen, president trump signed an executive order retreating from his hard-line stance and ending the separation of children from their families at the southern border. he said the "zero tolerance"
6:01 pm
policy will remain in place but going forward children will be allowed to stay with their parents as adults face criminal prosecution. >> we are going to have strong borders but keep the families together. >> reporter: this latest move ends part of his immigration strategy that sparked widespread outrage and was condemned by the administration's democratic opponents, but many republicans, as well. >> i have never, never seen the shape of the country it is now. and it has to stop. >> reporter: all this comes ahead of a possible vote thursday on two gop immigration bills in the house, although neither bill appears to have the votes needed to pass. >> under this bill, when people are being prosecuted for illegally crossing the border, families will remain together under a dhs custody throughout the length of their legal proceedings. >> reporter: many questions remain. detaining children with adults for longer than 20 days violates the 1997 flores
6:02 pm
settlement which could instantly draw litigation from civil libertarians and immigration groups. the justice department says separating families could resume if they don't get relief from that 20 day cap. also the reunification process for separated families is unclear. the department of health and human services says more than 2300 minors were separated at the border from may 5 through june 9th. many have been transported to holding facilities thousands of miles away. the "new york times" quotes an hhs official who says, those existing cases will not be grandfathered in and the children will not be immediately reunited with their families. according to the "associated press," babies and other young children are being detained in three tender age shelters as they're called in texas. many of the children there are under the age of 5 and the order the president signed today says officials will now identify facilities that can hold parents and children
6:03 pm
together while their legal cases are considered by the courts. >> thank you. bay area congresswoman jackie speier says the president's executive order does nothing to address the 2300 children who have already been separated from their families. we spoke to her this afternoon on the "four on 2". >> what the president should have done, could have done and didn't do was tell his attorney general to recall the "zero tolerance" policy that he imposed back in april. >> "zero tolerance" policy is still in effect and coming up at 6:30, we'll take a closer look at what that means for immigrant families going forward. joining us now is our political analyst brian sobel. in practical terms, how big a deal is this what the president did today? and in the scheme of things, this really doesn't do anything to fix our massive immigration problem. >> it doesn't fix the immigration problem but it's one of the few times that you have seen the president really reverse course and do it very quickly. he was receiving a considerable amount of heat
6:04 pm
not just from democrats but from republicans who are coming up on the midterm elections and don't want this to be showing up in campaign brochures. >> so in a nutshell, does this stop families from being separated at the border? >> for now. but the biggest problem is that this is not a long-term solution. and until congress can meet and make something happen, we are going to have this thing kicked down the field over and over again through executive orders and other means like that, which is not a permanent solution. >> brian, it does seem sometimes like democrats are saying it's all the republicans' fault, republicans are saying it's all the democrats' fault. everyone is just yelling back and forth at each other. and in the meantime, nothing gets done and you have thousands and thousands and thousands of people whose lives are affected by that. >> absolutely. and i think this -- this sort of behavior by congress, which has been going on for a long time, is unconscionable when it deals with human beings like this. it -- it -- the fact that people can't walk across the
6:05 pm
aisle and find some compromise, which is the whole idea behind the congress, is unfortunate and needs to be fixed. >> there are two bills coming up for a vote tomorrow. does today's executive order give either of these bills any traction? >> you need 218 votes to pass the bill and i don't think there are to pass either bill and that's what we get out of washington, d.c. at this time. so unless they are changed before a vote, they will go down in defeat. >> almost seems like now is the time to act. and if they don't have enough votes now, with all of this going on, especially seeing the pictures of these kids, so much emotion, protests all across the country, if they can't get something done now, whattake? >> you don't know. but one thing is true. the republican party, the democrat party, they are not monolithic things. there are within those parties all kinds of viewpoints. so if you just said, hey, republicans, why don't you all vote for something, you have a
6:06 pm
lot of republicans who won't. democrats, vote for something. a lot of democrats who won't. that's why you need that compromise that we keep talking about that we're not getting right now. >> all right. brian sobel, thank you. several major airlines have asked the trump administration not to use their planes to transport immigrant children who have been separated from their families. american airlines said its flights were used to transport migrant children to detention centers across the country. the airline said it was unaware if that was the case saying it provides travel services to the government through contracts. united airlines, frontier airlines, southwest and alaska airlines have all made similar requests. a bay area couple has raised more than $13 million to help reunite immigrant parents with their children. charlotte and dave willner are former facebook employees. they had originally set a goal to raise $1,500 with their campaign on facebook. yesterday at this time, the total was around $5 million. as lat check, they have raised 13-point --at last check, they have raised $13.2 million for the refugee and immigrant center for education and legal services based in texas. it is the largest single

6:09 pm
>> reporter: as the motor case passed, the crowd's attention turned from the passing dignitary to the scuffle between the officers and that man.that's when a witness and police say someone in the crowd threw a bottle at the officers. >> the hard part about the video is it doesn't show how quickly the crowd turned hostile and violent toward the officers that were on scene. >> reporter: in this video you can see one of the officers holding his shoulder after being hit by that bottle. one officer was hit in the head another in the leg. one of the officers was taken to the hospital to be evaluated and has since been released. the man who was wrestled to the ground is being evaluated at an area hospital with minor injuries and is under arrest with a series of charges. at this point, san francisco police are not releasing any information about the man they arrested as a result of that scuffle. police also looking for whoever threw that bottle or bottles at them following that scuffle. that investigation is ongoing. christien kafton, ktvu fox 2 news.

6:16 pm
dollars of merchandise. they probably needed a way to do that. but also, keep people distracted from calling the cops so probably that's why they dressed that way. >> reporter: i reached out to at&t today asked about store security. officials either declined to comment or didn't respond. one more note, police are still trying to track down the customer helped by one of the suspects. >> henry lee in our newsroom, thank you. now to san leandro, where police are searching for suspects in the city's first homicide of the year. the investigators say a fight broke out among four people at about 11:00 last night in the parking lot of the washington plaza shopping center on washington avenue downtown. two men had stab wounds. one victim died at the scene. the other was taken to the hospital with critical injuries. san leandro police are looking for two men described as persons of interest in the case. detectives tell us they
6:17 pm
collected surveillance footage from nearby stores that could be helpful in their investigation. but they say there is little indication what led up to that fight. >> witnesses just reported it as a fight between four individuals. there was nothing seen or heard prior to that. >> all we know is what we heard on the news that it was a violent stabbing. what would cause that kind of violence for a kid that was so mild-mannered and respectful? >> grief-stricken relatives prayed and hugged at the crime scene this morning. they say the victim was 25 years old, funny, kind and hard working and not the kind of person to get into trouble. all righty. just looking over at one of the live cameras in the studio. you can't see it now but i was seeing that fog shrinking down a little more which is an indicator that things will be warmer tomorrow and then significantly warmer friday, saturday and even into sunday,
6:18 pm
especially in the inland bay valleys. cooler at the coast. highs today in some areas about the same as yesterday. inland spots were a couple of degrees cooler. but then tomorrow, these areas -- all this inland area turns into upper 80s and low 90s. and then on, um, friday, all these areas turn into mid-90s and upper 90s. then on saturday inland areas turn into low 100s, upper 90s. so you get the idea, it's going to heat up. saturday is the peak of the heat with inland valleys experiencing heat in the triple digits most likely, our inland valleys, which we -- it's not -- doesn't appear to be a record-setting type of event as much as just haven't seen a lot of it because we haven't had a lot of hot days in a row. plant and pets will need extra water and the take it a little slower mainly on friday and

saturday. it will be cooler on sunday. there's fog along the coast. and it's getting pinched down like i said. i'll show you that picture next time you see me. but you can see where the fog is getting pushed down. that's an indication that things are beginning to heat up. tomorrow you'll notice it. you'll really notice it on friday and saturday. instagram today unveiled its new long form video service. it's called ig tv. the app's focus is programming from creators on the platform. and the content starts playing as soon as users open the app. the expansion announced today will increase instagram's from one minute to 10 minutes for videos. it's seen as a challenge to youtube. officials working to clean up a troubled bart station. >> they deserve the right to feel safe and we are going to make that happen. >> up next, the new police patrols just announced to combat drug use at the station. >> another san francisco giant went down today with an injury. but for the first time this week, the giants and marlins

now to today's's top stories. president trump has signed an executive order meant to end the controversial practice of separating children from their families at the u.s. border. pressure has been growing for the white house to take action. today's order means the families that cross the border illegally will be detained but held together while the adults are prosecuted. >> we are going to have very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together. i didn't like the sight or the
6:29 pm
feeling of families being separated. >> it is not clear though tonight what will happen to the more than 2,000 children who have already been separated from their parents. the secretary of health and human services said his department will start reuniting children with families but made no commitment on how quickly that would happen. ou're watching ktvu fox 2 news at 6:30. the trump administration is not backing down from its "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting everyone who crosses the border illegally. so as rob malcolm explains, the president's executive order is not likely to end that controversy. >> we're going to have a lot of happy people. reporter: after insisting only congress can solve the problem, the president signed the executive order designed to keep migrant families together. but what really happened here? >> children will continue to be held. i suppose that you could say it's a victory of sorts for political sentiment in the sense that the children will not be separated from their parents. >> reporter: there's little compromise says this professor. >> okay. we're not going to separate the children from the parents. but we're going to detain you
6:30 pm
for a long time together. and, um, and in order to get the authorization to detain you for a long time, we're going to go into federal court and have a previous agreement modified. >> reporter: that previous agreement was a ruling from a federal judge who in 1997 ruled that family detention violated the 1997 flores settlement which says that federal authorities must detain children in the least restrictive setting possible and should generally favor a policy of releasing them. conditions at the facilities have been rumored to be deplorable. barbara lee will be among 20 members of congress mostly women who will be visiting a detention facility friday in texas with no guarantees they will be able to have a look. >> it's been on and off that we could actually get in and --and --and see. we heard from homeland
6:31 pm
security today about some strict two-week requirements requests to get in. so we want to go down and see the children. we want to see what is actually taking place. of course, secretary nielsen of homeland security, she couldn't really give us any information. and so we want to see for ourselves what the conditions are, what's going on with the children, what's going on with their parents and what we can do to help stop this really barbaric kind of policy. >> reporter: this statement from representative ro khanna representing the 17th district of california: will be rob, ktvu fox 2 news. -- rob malcolm, ktvu fox 2 news. there were protests in sacramento today. demonstrators gathered outside
6:32 pm
the district court where white house attorneys and california's attorney general sparred over california's sanctuary state laws. the three laws passed last year, two of them limiting cooperation with immigration agents, the third allowing the state to inspect detention centers operating under federal government contracts. the main thrust of the federal government's argument is that the laws are an effort to interfere with immigration law enforcement. >> we anticipated that the federal government would sue us and that's why i crafted the measure that would not violate any type of federal law. we don't interfere with federal immigration policy. >> a judge heard arguments today and took no action. no matter the outcome, the case will probably be appeal to the ninth circuit. there's growing concern in contra costa county about soil being dumped at a landfill and whether it's potentially radioactive. residents started asking questions after learning that soil samples tested from the hunter point shipyard in san

6:46 pm
>> it's going to warm up especially into the weekend with temperatures into the triple digits so some big numbers showing up in the bay area as we get going here on the weekend. the high pressure is beginning to build in. as it does, the lid will come down impacting air quality and fire danger. it's starting now. i can see the marine layer pinching down a little bit. the story through the next couple of days will be this. saturday is the hottest day. sunday is still pretty hot. but it starts basically tomorrow warming up maybe 5 degrees inland and then boom friday, saturday big spikes and then it levels off on sunday. so when i say big spikes, we'll see 101 in places like antioch. 101 in fairfield. this is on saturday. sunday those temperatures will drop back down to 96 and 97 but still very warm. highs from today, highs tomorrow will be a good 5
6:47 pm
degrees warmer than that. so there's the fog along the coast. it's squishing down. it's not way down right now but it's down from where it was last night a couple of hundred feet and that's the have ben u cue. there you go. so let's see. 7:20 to the north tower. right? yeah. just over the north tower. so these are about 720 feet high and then the other night we were looking at sutro tower which is coming up on 1800 feet counting the mountains so the marine layer here is probably less than 1,000 feet or 1,000 feet and last night it was about 17 or 1800 feet so it's beginning to pin. saturday pinch. strong high pressure over the weekend and warming in the inland bay valleys. fog is scoured away with this pattern. the fohigh pressure one in the west, one in the east, they do their thing, which is what they haven't been doing very effectively this spring and

early summer. they really have been sort of just somewhat stationary. they haven't been hanging out. they will entrench themselves tomorrow and last really through saturday and sunday and then a cooldown. this will be one of our warmest runs of weather. these are the forecast highs for tomorrow. the warmest runs of weather, really this season so far where we are going to see three to four days of 90-plus degree temperatures in those inland bay valleys. so that brings up the fire danger. that brings up the air quality issues and stuff like that. none of it is unusual or unheard of. we haven't been seeing this pattern this season much. so it will this weekend. it will be hot barbecue weather in the livermore valley on saturday and sunday. you know how it is. >> i like how you showed us the fog levels dropping. >> tells you everything you need to know. you just look to the west and what happens. >> that's why i live in

6:53 pm
drama. alan hanson has been playing so well, fouls this ball, x- rays of his shin are negative and it's a knee contusion. the rest of the day, the giants go up on the marlins with a five-run 6th inning as it was miami leading 1-0 on the ground rule double by brandon belt that ties it. belt went three for four. hunter pence even gets into the act with a shot to right. he had a couple of hits in four tries. giants lead 3-1 and the beat goes on. gorky hernandez with his only hit into right center field, two runs score. and the giants are off and cruising you figure for a rather routine win. didn't turn out to be that way but this is a funny moment. nick huntley a catcher trying for a double! he has catcher legs and then he has to run some more. not often a catcher has to go all the way to third base. he does wind up safely there. scored the giants' last run. and the teammates getting a
6:54 pm
kick out of it. marlins came on with two in the ninth. giants squeak it out. like bash brothers 2.0 for the a's again as they go down to san diego and it's the long ball. in fact, they had 7 home runs in a two-game series. let's get it rolling with franklin barreto came into the game with an 0.71 batting average. that's not good. three-run homer there. 424 feet and the bullpen is loving it and the beat goes on. josh begley getting some play now as the backup catcher. that's his first of the year. the 3rd inning about 425-ha in footer there. his ninth. 5-0 lead. and, as a matter of fact, in that 3rd inning, they go back to back, matt olson hit one out gone
6:55 pm
and on the mound don't forget the pitching, too,. he is 4-1 now with a 2.41era with one run in the victory today and had the strikeout ball rolling, as well. what you're noticing the world cup games the cream of the crop really stepping up. three of the games today ronaldo perhaps the greatest of them all off a three goal game does it again, fourth minute with this one going to work out of nowhere with the header. watch the replay. this takes an incredible amount of athletic ability! >> oh, my gosh. >> just bull it in there. 1-0 portugal winning. do not try this at home, ladies and gentlemen! look at this lighter. >> oh!! >> this is prior to the iran same game, 54th minute, diego finds the back of the net.
6:56 pm
the defender actually knocked the ball off costas. that's his third goal and spain wins 1-0 over iran. as you take a look at the goal right there. and happy spaniards. meanwhile, it's uruguay and saudi arabia. their great player luis suarez star of the team 23rd minute, uruguay from the corner, carlos sanchez whipped it in and suarez will score here the game's only goal for uruguay and school is out again in uruguay like we showed you last week. they are loving it! they beat saudi arabia 1-0. inn that one. and we do have some time to "check this out"! as we bid you farewell this evening, cardinals and phillies, hernandez deep and watch the great catch by the female fan right there going up, kind of a dangerous grab but man, she made it look
6:57 pm
good. and she wants to watch the replay there. davis hit in the shoulder by the pitch and just keeps it in motion. a little cartwheel there from the former a, former giant rajai davis taking it in stride. you want to see a good baseball throw right here, guy trying to tapping, medium deep in right field, jason heyward has his man. chris taylor of the dodgers is out. >> beautiful. >> the cubs shut down the dodgers 4-0 this afternoon. >> and some great play here. this is kind of nonchalant as jose iglesias makes the catching back to the infield, that is a lot harder than it los angeles. you saw the great catch made by a fan? here's the not the way to do it catch by the fan. oh, man. he didn't get the ball. ball. >> he is all right. >> is he you later. good night. -- see you later.

is anyone else troubled by the spider-man theme song? why would it trouble you? it's, like, your third favorite cartoon theme song. it is, right behind ♪ do do-do do-do, inspector gadget... ♪ ...and ♪ teenage mutant ninja turtles ♪ ♪ heroes in a half-shell others: ♪ turtle power! however, the spider-man lyrics posit that "spider-man, spider-man does whatever a spider can." yeah, so? i can think of many things spider-man can't do that a spider can. one: crawl in your ear and die. two: legally leave guatemala without a passport. three: have sex with a spider. can we change the subject? spiders give me the jeebie-jeebies. it's "heebie-jeebies." i know, but that sounds anti-semitic. anyway, i was thinking we could have a little film festival tonight.
