looking at our live camera from 101. yesterday we couldn't see this shot either. there were low clouds, fog as well. >> what a difference a day makes. a san jose teacher is on paid administrative leave after supposedly telling students that they would be deported because donald trump was elected president. that teacher works at oak grove high school. >> that's where we find "today in the bay's" kris sanchez to explain what students are saying this morning. kris? >> reporter: good morning, laura and sam. we'll start by saying we did reach out to that teacher. we do know who that person is. we're not identifying that person at this point. wanted to get their side of the story, but they did not respond back. here is how a student describes what happened last wednesday, the day after donald trump's election. it was an on campus rally at oak grove high school the day after the election. the student who does not want to be identified told us she and her friends chose to sit out the
national anthem they say in protest of trump's rhetoric and his position on immigration. that student then says the teacher asked them to stand and when they didn't, she got frustrated and said this. >> good luck with being deported now that donald trump is president. you guys have it better here than you will over there. i was shocked and angry because i never thought i'd hear this coming from a teacher. >> reporter: we did reach out to the east side union high school district and they will only confirm that there is a teacher on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation. no charges have been filed, likely because this would not be considered a crime. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." 4:33. also happening today, it's not a question of the but when. san jose city council will debate a timeline for raising the city's minimum wage. it's part of a regional south
bay plan to raise wages $15 by 2019. 13 cities in santa clara county endorsed the plan back in june. it would outpace the minimum wage job in the same amount of years. san jose is the largest of those cities. it would impact about 250,000 workers. >> catch them while they're fresh. the commercial dungeness crab season is officially open for part of our coastline. the crab season opened south of marin county. it was supposed to open to the sonoma-me sonoma-men do seen know line as well. last year crab season was delayed by some four months after crabs tested positive for the same toxin. the recreational crab season has been open for about two weeks at this point. a pivotal decision made over marijuana laws in one east bay city after a four-hour-long debate. the oakland city council did
