5:09 pm
time in solitary confinement. the abuse claims against the juvenile center are detailed in federal court filings that include a half dozen sworn statements from detained teenagers. and this comes amid additional accusations that some other immigrant children in federal custody are being administered drugs against their will. the center of investigative reporting says a private shelter south of houston was forcing children to take drugs that made them dizzy and even incapacitated. a lawsuit filed in federal court alleges employees at the shelter told some children the injections were vitamins and that they could not see their families again unless they cooperated. the shelter has not responded to the charges. vandals made a statement overnight about immigration policy. they changed a billboard that had drivers doing a double- take. take a look here. it's a sign along i-80 in emeryville. it was changed from we make junk disappear, to we make

5:11 pm
um, it was just too good. >> reporter: we spoke with the artist by phone who was to remain anonymous. all we know is they are part of a group called in decline, an artist collective that's been creating what they claim is protest pieces for 17 years. this is video posted online by the artist themselves. it shows a sophisticate operation to take down the junk billboard to tell their message. >> empowerment is a huge tool especially in times like these, knowledge is power. >> reporter: it captured the attention of the mayor who tweeted this photo saying, quote, regardless of how it got there, it reflects our community's belief that hashtag families belong together. a sentiment shared by some, others just can't ignore the fact that vandalism is illegal. >> it's inflammatory. for sure. and personally, i don't like inflammatory things because they tend to just make people

5:16 pm
big down payment on the much, much larger liability. reporter: in the required public filings for setting aside $2.5 billion to pay for wine country wildfires, pg&e was duty-bound to explain it to current and future shareholders. >> this charge is related to only certain wildfires and reflects the low end of the range of estimated losses related to the devastating wildfires that affected northern california in 2017. >> we determined that we met the requirements to record a liability for 14 of the 16 fires. >> reporter: not included yet the tubs and atlas fires. cal fire hasn't finished investigating and for which pg&e could have a lot more liability. >> at this point, we are unable to reasonably estimate the high-end of the range. >> reporter: amanda is a bay area attorney whose firm represents 250 burned-out wine country homeowners. >> it's a positive thing. it says that pg&e is recognizing that it is liable and responsible for these
