hours ago. so i don't know what's happening here. >> no sir, that's not the point. >> kpnx i 5 reporter is live at the airport on the 4-our ordeal. >> you can hear the frustration on the voice of the pilot. imagine what it was like to be a passenger. they knew what much less, they were flying from while hard to san francisco. it got bogged out so they had to be diverted to oakland and here they got diverted to the tarmac for four hours. one of the passengers was so frustrated he threatened to go through the emergency exit and that's when the sheriffs department had to be called. >> children crying, it was terrible. >> reporter: the pilots were announcing that they were leaving but then the aeromexico plane kept sitting on the airport at the oakland international airport. the cabin got increasingly hot. >> it was hot, kids recline,

mark passengers were allowed to disembark in oakland. most tell me that they were called but some had anxiety attacks as it got very tense toward the end with very little communication from the airline about what was going to happen next. >> what upsets me is that they don't give us any explanation what happened. >> reporter: and we also reached out to aeromexico but have not yet heard back from them. i should mention, liz that the two men were pretty quickly released this evening. >> now joe we know when we fly domestically passengers have a certain set of security measures for them and for their own protection and is called the passengers bill of rights. what kind of rights do you have aboard an international flight? are they the same? >> right, the passengers bill of rights say that you cannot have more than a 3-hour delay keeping people in the tarmac. after the 3-hour machiavelli people out and asked him what's
going on. for international vice it is 4- hours. and they came right under the 4- hour mark. and you can see how frustrating that is, to get that that mark. >> all right joe, thank you. take a live look outside down town walnut creek, i hope you enjoy the break from the rain because it's not last much longer. our chief meteorologist paul deanno is in the center with that, paul? >> we have more coming before this time tomorrow. between now and then we have a dense fog alert and all east bay, inland valleys and the entire central valley including sacramento, davis south of fresno. visibility will be less than one quarter of a mile. let's look at the radar which is dry now but won't be for long. tomorrow morning we go cloudy by tomorrow morning with showers building offshore and a wave of light to moderate rainfall over the entire bay area, just in time for the
evening commute tomorrow. so rain and wind will be about a 3-4 on a 10 scale. and that will be the highest late in the day tomorrow. very sloppy drive home for workers because of that rain. the first of several weather systems to move in, we will talk about which one date looks to be the dry day of the next seven. tonight the government shutdown is now the second- longest longest ever. if he goes past saturday it will be the longest one ever. take a live look of the capitol tonight as the stalemate continues , tonight the white house wants to use money that was allocated for disaster relief like buyers and hurricanes to build the border wall. last fall president trump promise to help rebuild california communities destroyed by those wildfires. now he says he wants the army corps of engineers to look at using the billions in that emergency funding for the wall. instead. it's money that congress has already approved to fund
projects in california, puerto rico and elsewhere. i asked the governor today can the president do that? >> the answer is unequivocally, absolutely he cannot. if he wants to threaten now just california and based upon that statement i imagine those that were devastated by the hurricane and put that money toward a fifth century solution on a wall when he hasn't even spent the money congress appropriated last year for a wall, then we are at a whole another level of concern with the president of the united states. >> had a lot to say, you can see my entire interview with governor newson on our website. tonight the president has laid the groundwork to declare national emergency to build a wall. mr. trump surveyed a spot near mcallen with border agents on
duty. he says that the southern border is being overrun by migrants, drugs and human trafficking. >> we are going to get this straightened out, hopefully the democrats are going to come to their senses. >> i have the absolute right to declare an emergency. the lawyers advised me, i'm not prepared to do that yet, but if i have to, i will. >> meanwhile on capitol hill today there was no sign of compromise. house speaker nancy pelosi described yesterday's meeting at the white house where she said the president slammed his hand on the table and stormed out as a premeditated force. >> not only was the president unpresidential, surprise, surprise yesterday in his behavior. i think the meeting was a set up so he could walk out. but i'll say just that. >> today, air traffic controllers rallied at the us capitol demanding and into the stalemate. also tonight the aviation industry has a dire warning for all of us. anybody who flies the skies may be less safe now because of
this partial shutdown. an array of unions and professional groups have sent a letter now to the president saying "the shutdown is hampering our ability to function effectively." we are at san jose international with more on the travel troubles, maria? >> reporter: this is the first day that air traffic controllers did not get paid and of course they are worried about paying their bills, but they are also warning travelers that we could see delays that we saw in the 2013 government shutdown which happened when up to 6500 planes per day were delayed. chris arrived at the airport today an hour late. >> we just sat on the tarmac. >> reporter: and she blames the government shutdown. >> you're going to see shutdowns and delays on the magnitude you saw in 2013. >> reporter: in fact, the association of flight attendants and the association of professional flight attendants says that is right.
>> you've seen delays if we don't have enough people, you can't work the same number of airplanes. >> reporter: one traffic controller who didn't want to be identified told us they are not allowed to leave during the shutdown and are working overtime. he also claimed some planes are not being inspected. a union that represents thousands of flight attendants wrote a letter to the president saying "are members of the traveling public are flying within the system that is less safe and secure as long as the shutdown continues" >> we are highly paid professionals that will ensure that the people that get on those planes are safe. but that margin of safety degrades if we are distracted. >> reporter: uses many will resign of the shutdown continues because they simply can't afford to survive in the bay hour without a paycheck. this puts more pressure on air traffic controllers who are left and causes a ripple effect throughout the country. >> we operate the safest most efficient airspace in the world. and to use those people as political pawns over government funding is wrong. >> reporter: and a spokesperson
for the faa released a statement saying in part, "we are allocating faa resources based on risk assessment to meet all safety critical functions." but that brings us to the other aspect of the story. engineers for the traffic controllers, those who fix their quote equipment they are being told to stay at home and training for new traffic controllers has come to a halt. live in san jose maria medina, kpix 5. of course we will have the latest on the government shutdown on our kp x5 morning news and that starts at 4:30. google search sued for covering up alleged sexual misconduct. what warmer executive is accused of sex trafficking. he's been called the button- down bandit. how was well dressed crook pulled off grand threat. and could become the most expensive divorce ever. the reports that tonight that amazon's jeff bezo is leaving

message from shareholders to google's parent company alphabet. the lawsuit filed today argues that the tech giant turned a blind eye to sexual harassment and rewarded highly paid men. instead of disciplining them, the company protected them. >> the rewarded people with enormous amounts of money. they let them leave as if they were heroes, and no one ever openly talked about what was being specifically covered up. >> reporter: the complaint states that andy rubin who created the android mobile software is alleged to have engaged in human sex trafficking, paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to women to meet in ruben's own words owned by him. the complaint states that rather than firing him, he received a $90 million exit package, even after an internal investigation found hex sexual harassment claims against him credible. >> we have asked for a lot of changes in the corporate governance at google.
