5:02 pm
we are live on the campus of san jose state, i'm damian trujillo, nbc bay area news. >> thank you very much. today's ruling is a setback for california lawmakers who are fighting to offer health insurance to undocumented immigrants in california. if the court had upheld the president's plan more than half a million of undocumented immigrants could have signed up for medical and that is the state's low-income medical program. the state is awaiting a federal waiver that would allow undocumented immigrants to bypass through obamacare at full price. as we mentioned, the ruling will impact an estimated 4 million undocumented immigrants and in 30 minutes we're going to answer many of the questions about today's ruling. we're hosting a phone bank in conjunction with our spanish language partners at telemundo 48. it you have a question, this is the number to call, this is 1-800-548-4884. the phone bank will be opened from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. tonight.

death of justice antonin scalia who opposed affirmative action. justice elena kagan recused herself from this case. >> this was taken from my body. the five bullets ripped through my body. >> an emotional moment during an unprecedented protest over gun control on capitol hill. bay area congresswoman jackie spear brought along a horrific reminder of gun violence. one of the bullets that nearly killed her three decades ago. spear was shot when cult members at joanstown attacked her congressional delegation in 1978. the world watched her moving moment on the house floor via social media. lawmakers turned to live web stream when traditional media was shut down. scott budman is here with that part of the story. scott, they took it into their own hands. >> literally into their own han hands. safe to say many people outside of silicon valley learned about
5:05 pm
social media streaming when it was used over the last two days for the democratic sit-in over gun control. >> the video is jittery and sometimes people get in the way. that's because this footage from the floor of the house of representatives was streamed from cell phones when the mikes were turned off during a democratic sit-in to raise awareness about gun violence. >> for 25 hours we were streaming live video to outlets across the country. >> members of the house turned on their phones, broadcasting instead via bay area social media companies like periscope and facebook, streaming services that let people watch and comment. >> we saw the comment stream of people saying keep fighting. keep doing this. finally congress is standing up and doing something. >> periscope, via periscope calls it a watershed moment in its history. >> to show how periscope can

5:13 pm
and bizarre kidnapping in vallejo. matthew muller is charged with kidnapping a woman last year and it is a case that garnered national attention after police called it a hoax. nbc bay area's jodi hernandez was in court as muller's attorney tried to convince a judge to throw out the evidence. >> reporter: a lot hinged on today's hearing in federal court. matthew muller's attorney claimed a key piece of evidence was obtained illegally, but the judge didn't buy it. >> i was nervous most of the morning pip morning. i felt pretty good that the judge would go in favor and the uncertain they it would go the other way. >> reporter: that is how the family felt as the man accused of kidnapping denise haskins and drugging aaron quinn tried to derail the case. the cell phone muller left behind at a separate home invasion in dublin last june should never have been opened by
5:14 pm
police without a search warrant. the phone led investigators to evidence linking mueller to the vallejo kidnapping. >> it's a phone that mr. muller's that was searched without a warrant and phones are devices that are so personal to all of us americans. >> but the judge ruled muller gave up his right to privacy when he entered the dublin house illegally, leaving his phone as he ran away. >> it means they will put every piece of evidence they found into evidence and that would include the results of the search warrants and the searches of the apartments, cars and everything. >> they are relieved with the ruling and muller victimized the couple who they say are still traumatized. >> i don't know how you fully get over the trauma like that. >> i wish he would consider what he's done and come forthwith actually the truth and he has not done that yet. >> i asked muller's attorney if a possible plea deal is in the
5:15 pm
future. he said no, adding they'll be ready for trial when it starts in january. in sacramento, i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> jodi, thank you. >> one resident of ventura county says it was the smell of this black goo that woke him up this morning. cleanup is under way in the ravine, flooded with nearly 30,000 gallons of crude oil. it leaked from a pipeline carrying the oil to long beach. the pipeline company said the faulty valve is to blame. local authorities say they're lucky that the ravine is dry and no water is flowing. this leak is 50 miles northwest of last year's much bigger oil spill off the coast of santa barbara. federal investigators blame that spill on corroded pipes. the owner of the pipeline faces millions of dollars in fines and dozens of criminal charges. let's take you out live to moffett field. as you can see, the ground crew taking care of air force one, the president here for a
5:16 pm
three-day trip and of course, he'll be attending the global entrepreneurship summit and that is taking place at stanford and he'll be meeting with mark zuckerberg and attending a few fund raisers and people are excited to have him in town. >> it looks like when they bring out the staircase there and he's a few minutes to come off the plane and we'll monitor this as it happens as president obama is ready to get off air force one. if you want to get the most out of your charitable effort, help someone who is already helping others. >> this is a formula making a whole lot of good happen no matter how you look at it and it's something happening in san jose. garvin thomas has a community coming together to help out a remarkable man who is doing remarkable thing, garvin. >> if you had to go through the worst part of your life in order to get to the best is it still really the worst? chad bojorquez doesn't have an answer to that quite yet perhaps because the absolute best part of his journey, chad believes,
5:17 pm
is still ahead of him. >> he seems motivated to keep going. >> born with a muscular disease that required 14 surgeries by the age of 10, young chad's future looked bright. he graduated high school in just three years and was accepted to study film at usc. it was there, though, that some future demon first got their hooks in chad. >> pretty depressed and pretty lonely using substances to fill that hole. >> it was the beginning of a downward spiral that left chad living on the stress of santa cruz for four brutal years before realizing he did have the strength to fight his way back into society. >> i had survived an experience that not everyone does and that was pretty empowering. >> chad is now a project director for the downtown streets team, a non-profit with a tremendous track record of getting homeless off the streets and into housing and jobs. still, the amount of good chad
5:18 pm
can do here is limited by the amount of time he is spending here. hour upon hour relying on busses and trains to get to work sites all over the south bay. >> in the morning i could be in palo alto and in the middle of the day. >> sorry about that technical problem. it was just getting good. >> he's all over the place. jeff is relying on busses and trains to get where he's going and hours he could be using helping homeless people, they heard his story and one woman organized an effort. they raised $78,000 and just gave him the check the other day to go towards getting his van and getting him equipped and father is a father of three. you can imagine what this means to take his family around and to be more e if interwith work and be more with the homeless work and that's how doing work with him. >> and highlight so many other
5:19 pm
people that use those modes of transportation and the issues they have. thank you, garvin. all right. take you back outside and we're talking our beautiful weather here and let's bring in our meteorologist jeff ranieri for the president who is arriving a mountain view. >> those clearing skies across the bay area and temperatures warming up a few degrees and we are in store for hotter weather in this upcoming weekend. let's get the microclimate forecast in san francisco. we have little in the way of fog and winds out of the west at 28 miles per hour and that's a colder wind and that's why it's 67. hotter in the east bay at 83 and the south bay coming in at 81. if we head into the forecast, mostly sunny to partly cloudy start and sunny skies in the south bay and right through san francisco, we can expect 55 degrees. we have been tracking this area of low pressure throughout the past 24 hours and this dropped our temperatures out of the 100 and that's going to exit off to
5:20 pm
the east as we head throughout tomorrow's forecast. make way for this area of high pressure to build in and that does have hotter air associated with it. as that area of hot high pressure builds in we will see dryer winds out of the north and that's what's going to help to increase our fire danger as we head throughout the next three to four-day period. with the dry winds and warmer air in place we have an increased fire danger. the spot that will see the highest fire danger through saturday and sunday is where the drought is the worst. that continues to be across contra costa and alameda counties currently under a severe to extreme drought at the moment. as we get a look at your microclimate forecast for tomorrow we'll be close to 90 and not quite there in san jose. sunny skies and for the peninsula, and san francisco starting to feel the heat up. ing for the north bay and the trivalley, we have isolated '90s. my warmest temperature at oo'92
5:21 pm
and the weather does get hotter and we change up and go a degree or two warmer and i'll put this in the low 90s for the south bay and san francisco, and i'll track more of this and i'll have more at 6:00. ch p.m. >> let's take you to moffett field. president obama has gotten off air force one and on the tarmac and speaking to dignitaries as he makes his way through san francisco. as you can see now he'll pull out and he'll walk toward the group of people. about 100 people gathered to shake hands and say hello to the president. >> it's good to bring the entrepreneurship summit back here. we have the inaugural one, and coming back here, the president said it's very important to create new ideas and thought processes and business opportunities for america. >> this is all a nice sight as he comes over to the throng of people here. you will see the slow walk over here and about 100 invited guests here at moffett field and
5:22 pm
they, of course, had to clear security and get there a couple of hours ago as well as the journalists that are on site. this is what they're waiting for, that hello from the president. >> it's neat to see and heading into the city where we will see a lot of security right now that is being set up inside of the intercontinental hotel and there are streets blocked off and as you said, waiting to say hello to the president who just landed ten minutes ago. he will get on marine one, the helicopter and go into san francisco and he'll spend the night at the intercontinental hotel. we're back in a moment. as we mentioned...the president
5:23 pm
5:24 pm
5:25 pm
i want to get to our lye pictures there. that is president obama in moffett field. air force one touched down 10 or 15 minutes ago. he is posing for pictures and a lot of vips that were invited to greet the president and he will presumably hop onboard marine one and the helicopter flying to chrissy field in san francisco where he will spend the night
5:26 pm
and tomorrow mr. obama will be on the stanford campus addressing the global entrepreneurship summit there at stanford. imagine being in a driverless car and suddenly you're in a situation where the computer has to choose where either putting you at risk or putting those outside of the car at risk. what would you want the car to do? the research shows that people want self-driving cars to save as many lives as possible in that situation, but they also want a car that makes protectioning themselves the top priority. what got government forced automakers to minimize overall casualties over the passengers' safety? many said they would not buy such a car. >> these are all of the debates we'll have for many years. >> for sure. >> we're back in a moment. stay with us. right now president obama is
