few minutes. >> thank you. >> an emergency intervention now. a judge steps in and halts part of president trump's executive order banning immigrants from several middle eastern country. this as people are detained at airports including sfo. last night's ruling is a temporary stay. it applies to immigrants with a green card who have just arrived in the u.s., who were already in transit as well. the stay prevents the trump administration from sending those people out of the country. most of president trump's immigration ban remains in place. on friday, he issued an executive order temporarily banning all refugees and denying entry for people from these seven countries, all are predominantly muslim. since then, protests and rallies have erupted alt airports across the country and right here in the bay area. inside the airports, people are being detained and questioned. hundreds chanted and cheered as word spread of a stay delaying

enforcement of president trump's executive order. one woman we talked to says her father, who lives in iran but has a green card, was detained for six hours in san francisco. >> he was really worried that they're going to send him back. he's not a very strong man. he's 80 years old. >> part of the legal effort to support individuals being detained. >> alongside protesters, attorneys and groups that support immigrants rights, earlier in the day, there was confusion about how customs and border protection was handling the order and who might be held. >> lieutenant governor gavin newsom and other civil rights activists showed up to show their support. they vowed to make sure people were helped and accounted for. >> people are happy to see me and pretty pissed off because they want me to go in and get the folks out. there's certain things i can do, certain things i can't do. >> we have been heartened during all of this to see hundreds of protesters come out and make
7:04 am
very clear that they stand with their muslim neighbors, that they welcome ref jow gees into their communities. >> activists and many in the immigrant community are celebrating the ruling that came down in new york last night. this is video of people rallying outside the courthouse in brooklyn. san francisco mayor ed lee commended the decision, saying as the son of chinese immigrants, i'm disgusted by the president's executive order to target the muslim community and ban immigrants from entering the united states. our country was built by immigrants in search of religious freedom and a life free of persecution and violence. these acs are a direct betrayal of those american values. hillary clinton also responded to the protests across the country. she tweeted, i stand with the people gathered across the country tonight defending our values and our constitution. this is not who we are. >> we mentioned earlier protests were happening at other airports across the country. that includes chicago's o'hare and jfk in new york.

released after 18 hours. he, an iranian, helped the u.s. military as an interpreter during the war in iraq. >>mer america is the grittest nation, the greatest people in the world. >> detention included a 12-year-old girl from yemen trying to yoin her parents and siblings in loss vattose. corg to the family, they're american citizens. >> i think the order is extraordinarily overbroad. it's drawing lines based on national origin and religion. and it's so sweeping that it's expecting people like a 12-year-old child who is simply trying to join her u.s. citizen family in the united states. >> chuck coppola, nbc bay area news. >> the president of the association of american universities also weighed in on the ban, saying we recognize the importance of a strong visa process to our nation's security. however, the administration's new order is causing damage and should end as quickly as possible.
7:07 am
>> the department of homeland security says it will comply with judicial orders not to deport travelers who were detained. president trump has not made any public statements about the judge's ruling. the president also signed three new executive orders. the first prohibits anyone from taking a job as a lobbyist for five years after leaving the trump administration. another pushes for the reorganization of the national security council and the homeland security council to better respond to new threats. and the last new order from president trump is a big one. he's asked his joint chiefs of staff to come up with a plan within 30 days to defeat isis. this brings mr. trump's total executive actions to 18. he's been in office officially for a week. >> our coverage continues on air and online. we will be following the court battle over the immigration executive order closely. our next newscast is at 5:p.m. we'll also be posted all the latest updates at nbcbayarea.com. much more ahead on today in

7:19 am
be warming up into the 50s. 53 degrees, and by noon, we should be at about 55 degrees. now, typically, we see highs in the lower to mid 50s for this time of the year, but yesterday, we did hit a high of about 60 degrees. and by 1:00 or 2:00, we will be climbing into the upper 50s for another shot at possibly seeing a high of about 60 degrees in san francisco. san jose also trending up, as we see the high pressure dominating in the forecast. we will continue to see these dry warming temperatures. at about 57 degrees by 12:00. 1:00 and 2:00, in the 60s, and san jose, expect a high of 65, 66 degrees. if you're making your way out to wine areas and of course, expecting to drink fabulous wine, you will do so in a lot of sunshine with warmer temps as well. 56 degrees by 3:00. fast forward to dinner time at about 5:00, and you're looking at about 61 degrees. so we definitely have had a chance to dry out following a series of storms, and this is
7:20 am
why. here's a quick check of that doppler radar. you don't see a lot of green on the map, which typically indicates rain. however, high pressure sitting over the san francisco yeah, and really all of california, all the way down to southern california, which is actually what's keeping us nice and dry and mostly clear. fast forward right now, the possibility of seeing some rain as early as wednesday night. it looks like these rain totals will be mainly sticking off to the north. if we fast forward through friday, the models have been kind of going back and forth in terms of rain totals, but right now, it looks like it's actually gone down. we're seeing anywhere between a half inch to just over an inch and a quarter for the majority of the bay area. not as impressive in terms of rain totals as what we have seen the past couple weeks. however, fast forward through about saturday and the majority of the rain totals stick to the north bay with palo alto, san jose, and livermore staying just below the half inch mark. let's take a quick check of the next seven days across the bay
7:21 am
area. another day of seeing 60s for today. fast forward through monday. 59 degrees. then by tuesday night, we start seeing a little built of that instability in the air mass and that's what brings the evening rain chances by wednesday. by thursday, we could wake up to an early morning slick commute. so you may want to take extra time, and then looking ahead, inland as well. look at this. we could be seeing a high of 66 degrees today. the 60s and that nice temperature area really sticks around through tuesday. fast forward through wednesday, we're still seeing the 60s, but wednesday evening, we should be seeing the return of rain, but 60s will be dominating through the end of tonight and into tuesday. >> thank you. you're watching today in the bay. straight ahead -- >> oh, yeah. you know, sometimes i sing. >> keeping the peace and keeping a tune. one local police officer's love of music brings him closer to the community he serves. it's today's bay area proud.

7:25 am
was just what he was looking for. his love of music. >> it's kind of always been a part of my life. my parents owned and operated their own business and i would go out on the weekends with my dad on house calls, and we would listen to country music. sometimes we would have a long drive, and we would just be sitting there, windows down, you know, singing country western music. >> colby continued singing as aer. even won a few competitions. but when his focus turned toward a career in law enforcement and raising a family, music kind of faded into the background. but not all the way. >> oh, yeah. walking the beat, i hum or whistle or, know, sometimes i sing. >> but what he did one night in november brought it back in a whole new way. he spotted a street musician, a regular downtown, and walked up to him. >> asked him, do you mind if i

7:44 am
less than a week after he assumed office, president donald trump issued an executive order on illegal immigration. it will deny federal funding to local governments that provide a safe haven for undocumented
7:45 am
immigrants accused of criminal activity. larry gerston joins us. before we get to that, we are looking at the second weekend of national protests against the president. the latest executive order will remind our viewers that barred syrian refugees indefinitely. it bars them from resettlement for four months and for 90 days, no entry for seven countries that are predominantly muslim. this follows up on the promises made in the campaign. >> trump supports should be happy because he's living up to his promises. friday, of course, sanctuary cities. friday night to saturday morning, this whole idea of keeping out muz -- basically muslims from seven countries in the middle east. there's more likely to come if he's going to continue living up to his promises. look for this week perhaps action on daca, that's 750,000 people, a third, 250,000, who live in california. look also perhaps this week for action on h-1b programs.
7:46 am
trump wants to redo that, which has silicon valley companies in a tizzy. what we're talking about is a very lengthy series of actions dealing with immigration affecting not only mexico, the middle east, the nation, but very, very seriously california. >> yeah, california and the bay area. this is really part of a suite of orders along the same theme. so let's turn now to the sanctuary order. what kind of impact does that have on undocumented people here in the state? >> like the rest of these, it's serious. serious in several respects. first because of the disruption to the potentially millions of people who live here and elsewhere without appropriate documentation. second, because of the financial cost. in california alone, if local jurisdictions refuse to cooperate with the request of the federal authorities to hand over undocumented residents, cities and counties could lose several00red million dollars in federal funds. trump is serious about that.

third, it gets to the question of over which government has the authority to remove undocumented residents accused of criminal activity. a lot at stake. >> criminal activity, touching on what you're talking about, why would anyone be against the federal government's effort to remove people who are accused of committing crimes? >> they might not be, but it really gets to the type of crime, vicky, the type of crime at issue as well as the outcome. the immigration and customs enforcement agency, we know them as i.c.e., of course, is charged with securing deportation for unauthorized resident involved in criminal activity. that seems pretty straightforward. in recent years, hundreds of local governments have committed to protecting those undocumented immigrants charged with misdemeanored like drunk driving or disorderly cult or petty theft. crimes far removed from terrorism or the threat to the nation. during the obama administration, i.c.e. was going to back off.

it's to concentrate on threats to the country, not just to anyone arrested. >> yes, but proponents would say crime is crime, right? how does this new policy change the immigration relationship between the government and our local governments? >> well, obama's policies have been changed by trump's executive order, which seeks to punish any local government that refuses to turn over arrested undocumented immigrants. whatever the crime, whatever the crime. deportation could also take place, listen to this, regardless of whether the undocumented resident is even convicted. so for some, trump's orders are a relief to those who believe any illegal immigration is just that and must be stamped out regardless of the crime to avoid unnecessarily government cost and protect us from would-be terrorism. opponent view this, as we see, as a senseless attack on individual liberties. meanwhile, local governments, wow, they provide the sanctuary

status areas, but the squeeze is on. the squeeze is on, and either they disband the sanctuary protection and save federal funds or keep sanctuary standing and face the loss of funds. a lot at stake. >> you said hundreds of millions of dollars really is what it boils down to. where do we stand right now? >> we're in the early moments. like the actions of the last 48 hours, right? we're in the early moments of this potentially monumental policy shift. already on friday, the mayor of miami-dade county decided to do away with the sanctuary policy. in order to avoid losing those federal funds. most localities,cluding dozens throughout california and several in the bay area so far, they have decided to ignore trump's executive order. at least for now. they believe the order is unconstitutional. we have seen friday and saturday's orders tested in court initially, right? they're hoping that because of earlier decisions of the supreme court, this will fall by the wayside as well. but make no mistake, make no mistake, this is high stakes

politics. and while we may not know the legality of this order for perhaps several years, millions of documented residents find themselves going underground to avoid any attention. that sets up potentially another series of problems. >> certainly, with what we're seeing this weekend and also with the sanctuary policy, a lot of lives hanging in the balance right now. >> millions. millions, including, don't forget, we have 2.7 million undocumented immigrants in california. that's one fourth of the total, so in this state, it's ground zero for all these policies. recent and forthcoming. >> thank you so much for your analysis. >> still to come on today in the bay, lunar new year celebrations continue across the bay area. how the san francisco zoo is honoring the year of the rooster. and a 44-degree mark right now, but expect to warm up, yes, into the 60s yet again. we're tracking sunshine and more rain that is headed towards the bay area.
