the order, put the administration is sticking by the orderer and crashing down on border security is something that candidate trump talked about time and time again on the campaign trail. >> i am told by the officials that anyone who has been detained, if there's no further threat, and they're not dangerous to this country, they can expect to be released in due course, as most of them have already. >> reporter: some democrats in congress are talking about crafting legislation to overturn this ban. of course that would require some republican buy-in, and it's not clear that's going to happen. well, california's senator diane feinstein is working on legislation to strike down president trump's executive order. yesterday she tweeted:

dave and pam, good morning to you. let's take a look at what we have now. northbound 101, as you drive from gilroy to san jose, not a bad commute. it continues to look very good, all the way up through into san jose. no major problems here. traffic also looks good as you drive on 17, getting over the hill into the valley. let's move along to some live pictures of interstate 880 at the coliseum. not a bad drive at all. it is a nice-looking drive all the way up into downtown oakland. if you get on the road early, you should have a very knives commute. bay bridge toll plaza is filling in a little early today. look at that. traffic is not quite stop and go yet in most of those lanes, but it is for for some. let's go to steve now at 5:18. a very good monday morning. a lot of high clouds came in yesterday afternoon and evening, and they continue a little bit this morning. i think they have is thinned out a little bit. a -- i think they have thinned
out a little bit. coast and bay look to be warm today, maybe tomorrow, as well. the higher clouds will give way to mostly sunny skies today. high pressure still holding it's ground. boy did it ever over the weekend, some high barometer readings. i can't bend my neck high enough to see it. half moon bay, 55? is that right? you're darned toothin' it is. -- tootin' it is. tootin' monterey says 39, but i know there are other 40s

will start to come back into wednesday, thursday, maybe even friday, as well. there's a huge disagreement for the weekend. one system -- one forecast model has more rain on sunday, one does not, so let me tackle that as we get closer towards the end of the week. nothing that we can't handle, but we get a break from the rain. oops, one more to show you. this is the timing on this. we're okay monday and tuesday, and then wednesday, we start to get some clouds in here, but rain stunt arrive until really late -- rain stunt arrive until really late -- rain doesn't arrive until really late. temperatures in the 60s. if you're on the coast, get the sunscreen out. seriously, about 70 today down near santa cruz. rain wednesday and thursday. let's just leave it there for now. >> steve harvey got it right this time around. coming up, who he announced as

yesterday thousands filled the departure and arrival gates. that protest temporarily shut down service in parts of the airport. activists say they goring to continue their protest because of customs and border protection they say may still be holding people across the country, or not allowing those detakenies to have act access to attorneys. >> there are people who are detained at secondary inspection all the time, even before this executive order, who are either at -- interviewed, asked if they want to withdraw their request for admission, will be to give up their resident status. there are people who get taken into secondary inspection because they are seeking assee allium and want to have a credible and fair interview. so there are a number of reasons that people would get into secondary admission. what is unusual about this executive order is that it is designated -- separating people
by nationallalties. >> reporter: for his part, president trump today issued a statement defending the order, readling in part: -- reading in part: now, for our part, we will continue to stay here at sfo to see if there are further protests today, and if they do arise, whether they could impact travelers. >> all right, christien, thank you. time is now 5:35. there is some support for president trump's order. aubrey huff expressed himself on twitter. he tweeted: >> huff then took aim at the protesters, saying:

what they call her lack of knowledge about public education and possible conflict of interests. steve bannon will now have a regular seat is at security meetings, and that shook up the traditionalle make-up of the national security council, diminishing the role of the military and intelligence leadership. according to the washington post, the director of national intelligence and is the joint chiefs of staff will only attend the high level meetings when the topics of discussion relate to their responsibilities and expertise. >> delta airlines says 110 flights have already been canceled today because of a systemwide outage that started yesterday. the airline canceled more than 150 flights yesterday, leaving a lot of people stranded. delta is is warning that more than cancellations are possible later today, as the airline works to get everything back to
