put the safety and prosperity of our country first and foremost."we're talking about a universe of 109 people. there were 325-thousand people that came into this country over a 24-hour period country. 109 of them were stopped for screening. keep this in and just in... we are learning more details as to why acting attorney general sally yates ordered justice department attorneys to ánotá defend president trump's executive order on refugees. yates...who was appointed by president obama... says she is not convinced that president trump's order is lawful, or that its defense is consistent with the department's obligatiúon to quote "always seek justice and stand for what is right." her directive will be in place until she leaves the department, which will likely happen once the senate confirms senator jeff sessions, president trump's pick for attorney general. happening now... demonstrators are gathering at airports and schools across the nation... for a third day of protests over president's trump travel ban. students, professors and officials at the university of oklahoma were out voicing opposition to president trump's new immigration

"i'm from berkeley but my father is from iraq"uc berkeley student deena mufti says president donald trump's executive order banning travel to the u.s. from seven predominantly muslim countries is having a direct impact on her family in iraq"so a lot of my family members have names that sound middle eastern and they're a little bit nervous to travel, my aunt is coming back from toronto and she is just wondering how long it is going to take her"any additional wait time for travelers to enter the united states is an inconveinience that will allow for extreme vetting over the next 90-days according to president donald trump "protection of the nation from foreign terrorist entering into the united states"however this cal student says iraq should not
be on this list of countries banned from traveling to america because of the current military alliance between the u.s. and iraq"a lot of iraqi's have died in the name of the united states to help and try to fight and support and for this to happen is really disrespectful and ruining a lot of lives"clearly by signing the executive order president trump does not see it that way. for the president, national security comes first...even if that means some iraqi allies disagree with how he is trying to protect the country... on the cal campus in berkeley haaziq madyun kron4news and stay with kron four as we continue our coverage of the travel ban and subsequent protests. be sure to download our mobile app... and we will alert you if there are any issues at airports or other places. the kron4 mobile app is a free download for apple and android devices. several airlines are promising full refunds to travelers caught in president

7 quick work of it7 though it was private propertythe demolition was a city project. this pile of debris is getting smaller and smaller.just this morningit was a 20-unit apartment complex at 310 esplanade avenue.but more than a year ago, the city of pacifica deemed it uninhabitable due to coastal erosion."we're stepping in to protect the public safety."the owner of the building went bankrupt in 2015and though it was his responsibility to take care of the dangerous building, he never had the means to.last month, the city said the complex would have to
come down."it was stable enough that we didn't feel like we had to hurry and rush the demolition any more quickly than we already were." so the city is footing the 330-thousand-dollar billso the building doesn't have the chance to plunge into the ocean below.you can see in the video from our helicopter partnership with a-b-c seven news how close the apartments were to the edge.in fact, the excavators had to stay 40 feet away during the entire project. the contractor has also been trying to protect the ocean. "what they did is they had their own drones taking a look at any debris that might have fallen down. just a precaution."now, the city is looking for grants to help shore up the bluffhoping to prevent the future demolition of anything farther inland. "definitely we'll do everything we can to protect the street, because the street and all the infrastructure within the street is the responsibility of the city."as for the third of a million dollars the city spent on the project"we're still working through the courts to try and get reimbursed, but we still don't know what to expect." soon you can expect to see large gravel on the slowly shrinking lot.where people's homes once stood. the project should wrap up in the next two to three days.the city has no expectation that anything else will be built here.live in pacifica, spencer blake, kron four news.

can do is articulate 'this is who we want to be and here's the type of people we're looking for." whether you agree with the hire or not, lynch is here to stay. the 49ers...have offered patience and security to their new gm...by reportedly signing him to a 6-year-contract. which should be enough time to build that championship culture, jed york has been looking for. 'we're going to strive to create a culture where everyone is working together. i think that's one of my strengths, something that i've done throughout my career is i've had an ability to bring people together." the next step in this process is securing a head coach. falcons offensive coordinator kyle shanahan is the presumptive candidate, but the niners can't officially hire him until after the super bowl. he is also expected to be signed to a 6- year-contract. coming up next, we're now less than a week away from super bowl 51. how the city of houston is gearing up to host the

it was packed, i've seen pictures of it. we had extra bleachers filling every nook and cranny with people.the stadium was built in 1950, predating houston's most iconic sports venue, the astrodome by 15 years. aside from upgrading the bleachers from wood to aluminum, and removing the north endzone for a new training facility, the stadium is as it was 67 years ago.16:00:42some of our fans harken back to the day when they were five-years-old, six- years-old, coming to a game here, and now they've got grandkids that they're bringing to games here. not much has changed.along with hosting the super bowl, rice stadium was also home to the houston oilers in the 60s. it's hosted high school state championships and provided the stage for kennedy's most famous speeches.go to the decade and do the other because they are easy, but because they are hard.i think it's the city. i think it's important to rice university as a whole. i think it's why it sits hasn't been you've seen a places do. that only to the to the city.things full hosting the week as they prepare for sunday's game ... time for a check on weather.... hope you've enjoyed the nice weather over the last few days......because we're headed for another stormy spell...

need to fill. his deep pockets were suppsedly lined up to make up the difference... to get the stadium done. the raiders promised 500 million dollars, another 750 million is supposed to come from public money thanks to a vegas hotel tax. with the total cost at about 2-billion dollars... another player was needed. adelson was thought to be that player...but he seemed to want an ownership stake in the team...and now...he's moving on. it apparently has to do with the lease proposal the raiders submitted last week. he sent out this statement: "it was certainly shocking to the adelson family. we were not only excluded from the proposed agreement; we weren't even aware of its existence." what this adelson development means for the raiders to vegas deal remains to be seen. the raiders have indicated
they might have another funding source lined up. but if you are the city of oakland tonight or a raiders fan... you probably feel like you are back in the game...and there's renewed hope the silver and black will stay in the bay. steve and pam. happening tonight: a march is planned for a dublin girl who vanished on her way home from school 28 years ago. ilene misheloff was 13 years old at the time. it was 28 years ago today she left wells intermediate school for an ice-skating lesson. ilene was last seen walking along san ramon road and amador valley boulevard and has not been seen or heard from since. this is video of one of the marches from a couple of years ago. they are held every year and retrace her route. it is set to start at 7 p-m at the school. it's day one of the
