(steve) also breaking right now... firefighters in southern california are also battling a brush fire. this one is happening in the hills around malibu. so far the fire has burned about 25 acres... its being fueled by a stiff breeze and very dry vegetation. at this time no homes are threatened. (vicki) two bills targeting the immigrant population now move to the senate. today the house passed - kate's law- named after a san francisco woman allegedly killed by an undocumented immigrant. the other bill deals with "sanctuary cities". the white house says these proposed laws are essential to protect u-s citizens - opponents say the legislation hurts communities and instills fear. kron four's terisa estacio spoke with people on both sides of the debate. kate steinle's dad testified
that as his daughter lay in his arms after being struck by a bullet while walking on pier 14 she said, help me dad. the 32 year old pleasanton resident died 2 hours later. ever since that fateful day - the family has rallied and fought filing a lawsuit against san francisco - and backing measures to toughen laws. and on this day, the house of representatives voted overwhelmingly to approve kate's law. bob goodlatte, virginia representative. when you can take criminals off the streets. when you can prevent things from happening like what happened to kate steinle in san francisco. aarti kohli, executive director asian law caucus. " it was a very unfortunate case, tragic case, this bill wouldn't change anything that happened in the case." aarti kohli is with the asian law caucus, an immigrant activist organziation. in the steinle case, francisco lopez sanchez - arrested and charged in steinle's murder sparked a heated debate. lopez sanchez- shown here in court is an undocumented immigrant. he had been deported multiple times and had just been let
out when he allegedly stole a gun and fired it striking steinle. his attornies have argued, he did not intend to kill steinle or anyone, but the case sparked more controversy about us immigration policy. kate's law calls for enhanced penalties for convicted and deported criminals who reenter the us illegally. kohli. this is just a long part of an agenda that is anti-immigration they want to criminalize everyone who is undocumented. terisa estacio, reporting. an they are not the only ways speaking out about this. "i think it is a complex issue." i am not sure this is the way to go. and while opionions varied on the topic of supporting kate's law, everyone was unanimous in their support of kate's family. this saturday - marks two years since her death. it is just horrible. in san francisco, terisa estacio
(vicki) the "no sanctuary for criminals act" allows the government to deny federal funds to sanctuary cities that don't cooperate with ice officials. several bay area cities are considered sanctuary cities - including san francisco. however, neither bill is likely to make it past the senate. "kate's law" was introduced last year and failed to get the 60 votes it needed. the "no sanctuary for criminals act" could be an even harder sell because it involves cuts to law enforcement funding.

conference with department of homeland security secretary john kelly. kelly explained the sanctuary cities law will withhold funding from communities where officers do not cooperate with ice agents. kelly: arresting a criminal while they are still in custody is always, always the best option, additionally failing to honor an ice detainer means that these criminals are out on the streets that much longer. supporters says the bills are part of president donald trump's promise to crackdown on illegal immigration, but others argue this would take money away from communities and hurt families. juan vargas (california) they want to penalize these poor mothers who want to reunite with their families because that's what they are trying to do in most cases when they get kicked out and come back. -on cam tag- brie this wouldn't be the first time we heard these arguments on capitol hill. under the obama administration kate's law died in the senate last year. in washington brie jackson ( pam ) in the north bay... petaluma police say, a 23-year-old man arrested for

(catherine) the president's tweet is fueling mounting, bi-partisan criticism...with critics say it's more proof that he lacks the temperament for the oval office.. shortly before the msnbc show "morning joe" ended today... president trumpused twitter to taunt the co-anchors. but he's being blasted for using unusually personal and crude terms aboutmika brzezinski.. the tweet referred to low ratings.... referred to
joe scarborough as 'psycho joe'...but then, aside from calling brzezinski "low i-q crazy...." he described a meeting with her in which he claimed she was "bleeding badly from a face-lift." at the white house today...aides insisted the president is just punching back against critics.. susan sanders - i don't think so. i think the president has been attacked mercilessly on personal accounts by members on that program and i think he's been very clear that when he gets attacked he's going to hit back. rep. paul ryan, r- house speaker: obviously i don't see that as an appropriate comment. we're trying to keep discourse civil and this isn't helping to do that. paul ryan is just one of a number of republicans who are criticizing the president. others, like senator susan collins tweeting that "this has to stop." meantime, a new poll shows that 69
percent of americans think the president's useof twitter is "reckless and distracting." pam and steve? meanwhile, president trump is set to meet with russian president vladimir putin. the meeting is supposed to happen next week... at the g-20 summit in germany. russia has reportedly been the one pushing for the meeting between the two leaders. it is one of several meetings with world leaders... planned during the president's trip. the agenda has not been set ... but it may be difficult to ignore the cloud hanging over the white house... with multipe investigations into russias meddling with the 2016 election .. and the possible ties between russia and the trump campaign. a hot air balloon had to make an emergency landing in the middle of a downtown santa rosa street this morning. this is video of the landing.. you can see some cars had to swerve out of the way of the balloon. it happened just before 10 a-m in the santa rosa plaza.. there were at least two people on board...luckily no one was hurt. there is no information yet on why the balloon had to make the
landing. (pam ) well, the 4th of july is just a few days away. fireworks are already on sale across the bay area ... but that might not be fun for everyone. (steve) yeah, while most people love fireworks our four legged companions probably do not. in burlingame, the pennisulla humane society is hoping to help pet owners keep their dogs calm during this noisiest of holidays. kron 4's charles clifford has that story. nats4th of july fireworks can fun for people, but they're not much fun for pets. . . especially dogs. explosions and flashing lights don't remind them of america's independence day.sotevery year around this time the peninsula humane society sees a dramatic increase in the number of dogs being brought in off the street. these are usually pets that were left in a backyard and then got scared when they heard fireworks.sot

(catherine) we knew things were bad.... now senator dianne feinstein is warning that this year's wildfire season could be more severe than last year... she's pointing to the fact that nearly 30-thousand acres have already burned. this is one of the latest fires - which is on the camp pendleton marine corps base and in neighboring san clemente... it was only about 10 percent contained earlier today...but at least it's been moving slowly. crews are protecting nearby neighborhoods and there are no evacuations yet. statewide - feinstein says millions of trees died during the drought years - and that couldlead to a "catastrophic scenario." other fires include this one in los angeles county that got dangerously close to hollywood hills and burbank homes but has since been knocked down. california's largest fire covers nearly 10 square miles and is in riverside county....it's now
86 percent contained. pam and steve? (pam) a man has been arrested after trying to move into a house in san rafael ... that was still up for sale.. deputies with the marin county sheriff's say, a realtor called them .. reporting two suspicious people trying to move into the house.. when police confronted them, one suspect... now identified as francisco reyes, who you see in this picture.... ran away.. deputies learned reyes was also wanted out of sacramento for a probabtion violation. with the help of alert residents in the area, deputies were able to find reyes .. he was taken into custody.

"premiums are up 120 percent, deductibles up through the roof,"while toomey's on board with repealing and replacing obamacare, at least nine republican senators say they won't support the current bill.
that's forcing republican leaders to reconsider cuts to medicaid.deputy white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders says the trump administration supports efforts to tweak the bill.i didn't listen to all of it but not sure she said thisi think were always looking for ways to add flexibility, and something to be considered. this week most of the focus has been (is) on the handful of republicans not supporting the health care bill.but oregon senator ron wyden tells me, he and his fellow democrats aren't even (wouldn't use 'even' seems editorial) being asked to participate in health care reform. "i think this administration is making a huge mistake in not wanting to work on healthcare and taxes in a bipartisan way, the way you get results is to have a bi-partisan coalition" fellow oregon senator jeff merkley tells us its not clear when a vote will happen.however he says americans can bet when senate majority leader mitch mconnel does schedule a vote.
