a senior administration official tells fox news a president donald trump is expected to announce plans to end the program because of deportation reprieve to hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants. the program which is known as the allegations claim the four assisted and allowed an inmate to throw bodily fluids, including feces and urine, onto other inmates housed in a maximum security unit of the jail.linn and mcdermott were arrested for intimidation of a witness and assault under the color of authority. they're being held on a $135,000 bail. krause and sarcos were arrested for assault under the color of authority for a single incident in fall 2016. their bail has been set at $35,000. -- daca give us a reason behind trump doing this.
>> president obama did an executive order that started the dock a program. now trump during his running for president promised that he would get rid of daca. he's pandering to that. he said something interesting. he said now that i understand it. i am not so anxious to get rid of it. and i told us about a lot of politicians. they made a lot of promises when they did know what they were promising. he says now that when i understand that i met approach it with a kinder, gentler heart. and see what we can work out. what will he gain or lose ? >> what he would lose his deportation of 800,000 people. that could be the end result of it. and when you look to the
economics of that. those people are working. they're paying taxes. i am not a mathematician, but i've got to think that's in the billions of dollars of this country would lose if we do deport those people. >> people don't understand. california has the largest amount of daca recipients. these dreamers would stand to lose a lot if this program ended. if they are grandfathered in and that to you. would they automatically be deported. or their information turned over to immigration authorities. -- ? >> i think the president will look at this and say these are good citizens, most of them. i know they're gonna take care of the ones that have committed the crimes. those will be deported. iffy in this program. but if he doesn't. i think hills figure a way out to bring them into citizens. i think he'll in the program,
except for these 800,000 to 1 million. that were not gonna do daca anymore. when you apply for daca you give the government all your information. sophie gets rid of the program. they will know exactly where to find these people. and i'll have lots of information about them. so that begs the question. if you're not part of daca right now ? do you sign-up or say no i'm not giving my information to the government. because as he collapses out. dinner to come after me. so is gonna drive a lot of people underground expects of the government is a protect that information do these hundreds of thousands of dreamers have a legal case against united government -- states government. -- ? >> you sue the government ? are you can. but they have governmental
immunity. you really can't sue them. because they are protected by their immunity. saying we work for the government. and we have to do something. if you want to sue us it has to be criminal negligence. barring that it's very difficult to sue the government. some creative lawyer would have to think of something to do to block this. they may just delay the deportation. >> thank you michael cardoza our legal expert. it'll be interesting to see what happens. women tell you about san francisco's push to become the first city to offer safe sites for drug users to shoot up. us date lawmaker wants that to go away. take a closer look at president donald trump's tax reform plan. doesn't have a chance of
here to talk more about the plan is former chair of the republican party. so feel about the big announcement regarding daca ? >> it was done by an executive order. which was the wrong thing to do. it should be the consensus out of congress. each one of these executive orders that have been undone is legally the best thing to do. they need to build a better consensus and a fair system of immigration. there should be immigration reform, and i have a problem with getting rid of these executive orders that were done. this one was in violation of existing congressional rule. and it should've been in charge -- overturned in the courts. >> be challenges to it ? do you believe the trouble be successful on this ? >> yes in the courts. this is why republicans need to
get to a place where they are expanding the economy. when you're expanding economies much easier to fix obamacare, and immigration. it's easier to do this when they have jobs and when they don't. >> your minced -- mentioned obamacare what's your reaction to slashing that ? >> with a booming economy people would be getting a job. and health insurance in the private sector. it be easier to modify, change or get rid of obamacare. but by having a stagnant economy makes it harder to do the things. obamacare needs to be replaced. and the republic of the to get their act together and do it. we should not be extending it with that kind of funding. i favor what is doing. >> a lot of people believe that obamacare is beneficial to so many people out there. when you talk about getting job creation. and spurring the economy. you're looking at tax reform plans. do you like what you're hearing
from the president. and your actually be playing a role not ? but i do like what i hear from the president. for the last decade we have had growth under 2%. the 16 tax code and regulations or hurting the poor. not people have money. but the middle class and the poor need jobs. they need wage growth. 2% is not enough to do it. so what is holding back ? the answer is just like when president kennedy suggested tax reform. just like reagan did. and president coolidge. we need to take the burden off the economy. let it expand and that's were job growth will come from. >> do you think that's what he means by cutting the corporate rate down to 50% ? >> with the highest corporate rates in the world. to know what it was cut to 35, we let the world. now are trailing. i started a group called ca for tax relief. that i'm heading up, completely
voluntarily. because it's an important issue. this is an issue that is most important to me. we have to get the economy expanding so the people have a chance to get jobs and move up in the latter. >> you know that the sentiment out there is that trump is giving tax breaks to those the donated. those that have millions and billions of dollars per expecting over the needs of moving economy more than anybody ? the people without jobs. the people stuck in jobs where wages are growing. that is the last 10 years. if you like the last 10 years. and stick with the existing, not working tax code. if you want to expand the economy like kennedy wanted to do. you made a very simple. every dollar not a government is adult you can be in the private sector expanding and creating jobs. that's what this is about. that's why i'm starting ca for tax relief.org. we've got to change the system.
who benefits from that ? the rich. apple doesn't pay corporate taxes. switches is have any chance of getting through congress ? >> absolutely. because the rap republicans now know that their job is on the line. if they try to run on no tax reform. no economy and no healthcare changes. they're gonna lose their jobs. >> thank you tom. will follow you in your new efforts to push that tax reform with the new group based here in california. think is much we appreciated. a new law promises to help sub prime more quickly. the rapid dna test allows processing samples in less than two hours picking up press conference in pleasanton they said the dna law will solve crimes and identify
perpetrators much faster. >> of the former prosecutor i'm excited about what this could mean. to clear rape kit backlogs, and make sure that criminal suspects are arrested. in that we are not releasing them when they may have hits or connected to other outstanding cases. so this will go a long way to make sure that victims get the justice they need. >> the rapid dna bill will clear people who were wrongly accused. senator weiner was in support of opening injection centers. >> thanks for having me. we have a terrible opioid crisis throughout this country. including san francisco.
in our city we are not alone. we have a lot of people who are addicted to heroin. or other drugs. tourists shooting up in public. there shooting up on our sidewalks. and on people's front porches. in playgrounds and parks. we find syringes on the ground. which is a safety hazard. these people, they need a healthy. and putting them in jail is not to make them healthy. that doesn't solve the drug problem. and so what we are learning to do which is being done in europe and canada is having supervised spaces where people can come in. who are going to be shooting up. and we will have a safe space
to do it. not on the street. not in front of someone's house. not a part. but a safe supervised environment. the goal of course is to get them into treatment. and by having them in a supervised environment, we can connect them with those services. and get them into recovery. it is a proven successful method and worldwide there's never been a case of someone having a fatal overdose and a supervised injection site. >> your goal is to get them into recovery. is it more about making them less visible on the street. or are we helping them by giving them a place to inject. >> one goal is to get people healthy and into recovery services. another goal is for people not to be shooting up on our streets. not for the people's houses. and if someone is going to shoot up. keep in mind people are not that choose to shoot up at safe injection's sites they're gonna do it anyway. we want them to not overdose.
and not be harmed or died. so being in a supervised injection site is gonna make it less likely there can overdose. silver various reasons this is a good idea. and that's why it's been so successful in canada and in parts of europe >> do you believe that you can get support for this bill. and if so what is the next step ? >> it passed the state assembly a few months ago. which was terrific. and we even got a bit of republican support for the bill. i think we have a state -- shot in the state senate. we done with the governor's position is. but we hope that he'll supported. because he's been a real advocate for using health strategies instead of criminal strategies. >> thank you for talking to us. as you promote ab 186.

ordered russia to close of consulate in san francisco and two diplomatic m annexes in new york and washington. what is is all about ? rex tillerson says this is about retaliation. >> that's a typical situation when you have this kind of [null]-for-tat of expelling diplomats. russia expelled the 700 diplomats a few weeks ago. the sort of thing is not that unusual. but we haven't seen this kind of thing with russia since the cold war >> what is a sadie about the
current climate. -- ? >> we seem to be moving into a new cold war in many respects. it is particularly disappointing for those of us in san francisco. because the russian consulate has been here in the city since 1852. it is the longest running consulate in the entire united states. goes back to the time of the czars. even during the cold war when there was expulsions of diplomats. that didn't take place. we are looking at an unprecedented level of tension. we are we'll see how the russians respond. whether they will expel more diplomats or still decide the score is even. and let's cool things down but see what happens next.
>> so when we go from here ? >> clearly there is some real issues between the united states and russia. involving their occupation. and of course there to look at double standards of where we have interfered in other countries elections and the like. but given the importance of these two great powers, i hope that cooler heads will prevail. interestingly trump was not that interested about that expulsion. but the state department took it very seriously. we will see what happens. it clearly given all the attention, the two sides are
going to have to learn to get along better. >> professor always a pleasure to have you on. think you. a lot of people seem hays outside that there was a fire in their backyard. >> yes the fires up north. the northerly wind transports that smoke to the bay area. yes the on healthy air quality today. the levels will go up before tomorrow's well. here's a live camera. we look at this camera from san francisco and say that's fog and haze. no fog out there. that's the smog -- smoke coming in from the north.
