>> we are going to talk to our constitutional expert about that in a couple of minutes. in the meantime, the death of kate in san francisco. it was a powerful symbol about the need for stepped-up border security. >> legislation and her name is moving forward. >> reporter: the house of representatives passed two bills this afternoon cracking down on illegal immigration. kates law would impose mandatory minimum sentences on criminals who ran toward the united states after being deported. >> the time of letting our first criminals back in the country over and over and over must stop. the process begins again today. >> the legislation before us would not have prevented that tragedy. as the cato institute has said, the alleged shooter did not and have been san francisco due to
lax border security. in this case shows the opposite. in recent years, border patrol caught him every time he attempted to cross. >> you may recall she was walking with her father in the city when she was shot and killed. sanchez was arrested in the shooting. backers of the bill said he should never have been in the us since he had been deported five times and seven felony convictions. the house passed a separate bill targeting sanctuary cities. >> it is beyond my comprehension and local officials and state officials sworn to uphold the laws of the nation would actively discourage outright prevent law enforcement agencies from upholding the laws of the united states. why they would set public funds aside to pay for legal representation of illegal aliens who are also lawbreakers

and saying if somebody had a bona fide relationship with either an organization like a public university or a family member, but the supreme court didn't define close family members. the state department issued guidelines that wanted to effect . the state of hawaii has filed the challenge with the federal judge who had the case in hawaii previously saying the definition is too narrow. there are oddities to it. grandparents aren't included but stepsisters are included. your mother-in-law is included but not your brother-in-law. hawaii says -- wants to say that's not clear when it issued its order. >> what if the federal judge in hawaii says you are right? >> the judge could write his own definition of close family members. that would go to the ninth circuit. and it would happen to the supreme court.
we are going on the fly because i just heard about this. i wouldn't be surprised if a federal judge in hawaii said the supreme court has this. it issued the order and you had better file this application with them to seek clarification. >> i have a two-part question. the state of hawaii issued a challenge. does the guideline still go into effect? a dozen hold it up from taking effect? >> that's great. -- that's great. in any event, probably what would happen is they might widen the definition. in the moment, we are going ahead with but the state department issued. >> do you think any other state could follow suit?>> that is where one case started. i suppose you could do the same thing would be virginia because that is the counterpart case in
front of the supreme court. those are probably the places to do it. the one i was expecting was an organization who wanted to bring in refugees would want to say we also have a bona fide relationship with somebody and it is unfair that relationship wouldn't count. those might be coming along as well. >> there are people impacted by these nuances. what do you see happening? >> we will have confucian. anybody who currently has faces from one of these countries is fine. they can come in and get on an airplane. people who are within the current -- the new current definition. let's say you want to come to be with your mother. that would be all right. map to show documentation to get the visa. with these countries, you can't fly into the u.s. and be
admitted. you have to get a visa and show documentation in the home country. it will cause some confusion. some delays. we aren't going to see the chaos we saw the first time in the airports because this time the government has been more careful to say we aren't canceling thesis at the border or something. it will take place but more out of sight. >> this happens for 90 days than the supreme court hears the full case in october. >> that's right. state republicans are considering preserving some tax increases from obama. under the current version of the healthcare, most tax hikes would be repealed. gop leaders are weighing whether to keep some tax increases in place. they include an almost 4% hike on investments by wealthier americans. some moderate republicans want

the best he can say about the former hunters point naval shipyard. for many years it had a secret laboratory in sight for the study of activity. like treasure island, hunters point was a study point for ships that survived bomb points. the navy paid for cleanup and testing before turned the base over to the city of san francisco. >> since 2006, virtually every step of the radioactive cleanup at hunters point was a fraud. soil that was radioactive was pulled out of the ground and put right back into hunters point. 20 times the health level that the navy said. the navy and the city is planning to put houses up where we know it took place. >> i am concerned that people are going to get sick and die.>> reporter: environmental is offered to back this up
claiming the navy, state, and regulators and the soil remediation company that they accused of submitting false documents that the claimant met legal and safety standards. the environmentalists filed a petition with the government to take the license away. in a statement, the company said it emphatically does nice the allegations made by individuals of the news conference that it engaged in a cover-up of fraud on the hunters point a full shipyard and there is no basis for these claims. >> they viewed those of us that were professionals to find the radioactive material to ignore it. >> i don't want my grandchildren to stay a. >> reporter: the bottom line is this. at the radiological information on contamination in the ground is flawed or fraudulent, the question ultimately comes up,
should we be building anything here at all? housing? commercial? without knowing what took place and where to place, the cleanup is compromised. we are still waiting to hear from the city and the navy. less than a day after bart, the agency was put to the test. with our crime reporter henry lee found out when he asked for video of an attack on a train. military veteran said they got sick after being exposed to dangerous chemicals during the time during the service. they say they need medical help.

former bart police chief gary gee said the cameras on bart trains may not prevent all crimes but the footage after the fact can help solve crimes. in the past two thirds of the cameras on bart trains were de coys. >> the fact that now all the train cars are equipped with cameras are not only operational, but can also record and store footage that can be retrieved and used as evidence. it's a vast improvement over having in video whatsoever. >> as it stands, only cameras on bart station platforms and parking lots can be viewed in realtime. many writers we spoke to said they had no idea the cameras on trains aren't instantly accessible. >> it doesn't seem very safe to me. it's not a deter enter to anything happening in realtime. >> i think that there should be live recording all the time on the train. you never know what could happen. tons of people get on and off the train every day.
>> bart will be getting new trains at some point that will be out fitted with cameras that can provide live feed but for now all cameras are not live. >> how can you tell what train car you're in? they want you to know that if something happens. >> reporter: the number of each train car is outside and inside. if you are attacked and a victim try to remember to see what car you're in. >> i've ridden bart a lot. i've never had an issue. how big a problem are assaults on bart trains. >> reporter: they're fairly rare, but they do happen from time to time. this one happened late at night. bart is not immune to such big city crimes, its e especially when it goes through much of the dahir adan. so common sense prevails -- bay area. so common sense prevails. >> thank you. a report issued today found that more than half the hate crimes committed in the u.s.

enough to make him sick. it is officially toxic. in the 1960s, the base tested agent orange and mustard gas. . used -- risks the army never told him about. >> it was a lot of really deep holes and there was water in them. our can teens were empty because we were marching all day and we had asked if we could fill our can teens in that water there and the drill sergeant said yes. >> reporter: he has a 2015 medical document from a neurosurgeon at the va hospital. she wrote he was exposed to agent orp, pcb's and possibly radiation. the doctor responded to our inquiries about her diagnosis to only say she no longer worked at the va hospital. the va benefits office told him he
doesn't think his health problems came from his service. after world war 2, military men were sent to witness the greatest most destructive weapons of the time, atomic bombs. >> you close your eyes like this, you could face the bomb blast but you weren't supposed to see it. >> reporter: he served on a navy fleet in 1946. he says he was one of the lucky ones not commanded to go into the blast zone. >> they were on a ship out maybe ten miles away from the actual blast during the bomb drop, but they were sent back in the next day when this radiation was everywhere on the ship, in every crack. and then there was the guys that were sent in to wash down the ships to try to get rid of some of the radiation to make it safer for nor guys to go in. that was very poorly handled. >> reporter: he says over time
his fellowship mates started succumbing to different cancers. today at 92 he has had a host of different mel noem as. while he's not seeking compensation from the va, he says others should get it but they are not. the atomic test veterans are often denied. >> i think they should be get camp sayings right from the start. there was a lot more agent orange drops among the troofs. >> reporter: for him, he says he can no longer work, but he says the va will only list him as being 30% disabled. he wants to be taken seriously that his sickness came from his service on american soil. >> you're constantly in contact with the ground, you know, constantly breathing the air that was so toxic. >> both veterans want to know why va doctors never tracked their exposure after service and
would like to see more research committed for testing veterans for harmful radiation or chemical exposure. they say his neurosurgeon may have sek lated on his ex -- speculated on his ex you don't remembers. -- exp. a homeless couple arred in connection with the death of their little girl. coming up, why investigators believe the heat played a key roll in what happened.

unscheduled landing in downtown santa rosa today. >> it landed at the intersection of south a and first streets. there were 2 or 3 people on board and no one was hurt. they say it was clear that the balloon operator was trying to find an open spot to land and trying to avoid trees and high power voltage lines that are nearby. >> they were probably trying to avoid the high voltage lines on the other side of the building here. it is a little bit unusual. i've been to the festival a couple of times. so hot air balance oons aren't really something new to me but being in the middle of town down -- downtown is something different. >> reporter: sr place tell us they were a -- santa rose a police tell us they were aware of the balloon coming down. >> how beautiful when you see them over the distance. >> have you ever been in one.
>> years ago for washington. it is scary trying it see one land. >> have you ever been up in one. >> no. have you. >> one time. >> i knew that was coming. >> it was so different from anything. >> i bet. you know what's interesting about the boolness -- balance oons, the story how -- balloons, the story how bad that could have gone. you have the ability to go up or down. you can't steer, you're using prevailing winds they go up early in the morning wher atmosphere is pretty benign. if the wind comes up a little early, there is a lot of variables in the atmosphere that could affect you. they're just going up and down and trying to get the wind at different elevations. you don't have a ton of control. that's what i like about it. the usual highs from today, a little warmer -- right on
yesterday or maybe a degree warmer. then the fog along the coast. we're heading to friday now. this week flew by. there is fog in the broad more district. twin peaks. fog down to the valley and pacific a. it is foggy -- pacific a. there will be fog at the coast the next couple of days. which is exact le what happens in july, which is where we're headed here. july 4ththth coming up on fuse. right now temperatures are running about -- july 4th coming up on tuesday. right now temperatures are running about average. it's come -- we had massive cooling sunday, monday, tuesday, but now it's pinched down a little bit. that profile, when you see thashgs you can tell a lot about
the weather. tomorrow morning in san francisco cloudy like this morning. lunch time it's 60 degrees, cloudy like today. tomorrow, friday afternoon, mostly sunny, a little breezy, like today. these days are been the most similar day-to-day to day that we have had in a long time. we're warming up a degree or two. there are subtle changes. it's very subtle with the marine layer and the fog. just enough to tweak temperatures inland a few degrees. 63 in pacific a. that's the high for tomorrow. it's within of those things like a hand blieder, it's all about the weather. >> it's also weird being in a little bascetta little high up. >> where were you, do you remember? >> i think it was back in rhode island that i did it. ten years ago today the
iphone went on sale fofr the very first time -- sale for the very first time. >> three things, a wide screen ipod with touch controls a revolutionary mobile phone and a break through internet communications device. it was 2007 and stove jobs predicted the company was making history with its new device. the. phone sold for three 99 dollars and people were willing to wait hours in line -- three 99 dollars and people were willing to wait online for one -- three nine nine dollars and people were willing to wait online four hours to get one. >> there were enough cameras to make a president blush. it went on that way for a number of years after that. ipod was coming out of the ipod
era. . when he actually a nonesed this, it was a surprise. here is this device that can do all of these things in one pack ij. he was holding one and he showed out it worked, but when you got down on to the floor, that was the interesting thing. it was like people walking up to the alter. in that period of time, steve jobs went from being a genius to a god. after that a year later came the app store, the application store. there are currently a million applications that you can get on the apple itunes store. they have been downloaded 130 billion times and the developers made $70 billion off of apps. it changed the world. >> we keep seeing newer and newer versions coming out, slightly different changes. i remember the first one, you had the internet, you could text. there was no flash and of course the cameras keep getting better. where do you think we're going in the new direction as we keep
seeing advancements with these amazing devices. >> i think these are ultimately going to become very much a part of our medical labs. there are going to be ways for us to be self monitored whether thes' stuff implanted in us or it's kind of the electronic vibration that is we give off. i think that's going to be a huge part of the future. i think we are going to have much much quicker access. which is to say these things operate pretty fast but they are going to operate super lightning speed to the point where people complains, oh, this thing taekz forever. it is a remarkable thing in my lifetime. super sonic flight, space flight, the coming up the personal computer, the internet and the smart phone. those are the big five in my life. >> he really did change the world. >> thanks, tom. still to come, celebrate the forthth of july with hot dogs
