4:07 pm
the jury of 9 women and 3 men will resume deliberations on monday at the courthouse in oakland. for more on all of this, we are joined in studio by legal and us, michael cardoza. michael, good to see you here. as always. defense attorney, the defense for those two men, they believe the longer the jury is out, the better that likelihood is for their clients. do think that will hold true? >> i don't know if it will but in a certain sense, the longer they stay out, the more it indicates there might be a juror or two or more that are disagreeing with the rest of the jurors because if they were certainly working in unison, they have had enough time to work through the law, they've had enough time, i think, to work for the fax . >> some people look at 5 days and the, well, that's a long time. how can i not reach a decision but you have dealt with a lot of trials. 5 days is in the grand scheme -- >> i've had them out two or three weeks.
4:08 pm
at some point, i can tell you, the judge and probably interest double is in response to the next time the jury sends a no doubt, she will bring them into court and say, all right, where are we? and she may ask, "what is the count. " don't tell me which way you're done. for example, don't say 9 guilty, 3 guilty, just give me two numbers, where are you and they may say, we are 8-4 and the question goes, can you reach a verdict? >> what does she want to hear? how close does she want the jury to be? >> well, she's got no real dog in the fight so to speak so what she wants to know is how close to a verdict are they because in a case of this magnitude, i guarantee you, any judge trying this will want to have the journey -- jury reach a verdict so they don't have to retry the case for number of reasons, one of which is the cost . >> let's talk about the possible outcomes we might hear
4:09 pm
once the verdict comes down . >> sure . >> obviously, there is a possibility that both men could be found guilty or both men found not guilty. is there a possibility that 1 defendant is found guilty and the other is found not guilty? >> absolutely. i know the lawyers talked about that during jury selection where you tell the jury, we have individual defendants. they are each entitled to your individual vote so you can vote 1 guilty, 1 not guilty, hang on one encounter a verdict on the other. there are all sorts of possibilities. they are individual defendants entitled individual verdicts. >> we get the signals, when a jury is out and you have tried to read the tea leaves, i'm sure many times in cases. >> i have never been right. i'm trying to figure out, what do they mean by that note. >> everybody is so sure until they are not but then the jury asked for an ipad to get a 3-d look at the warehouse itself.
4:10 pm
what does that say to you? anything? >> well probably, again, probably says they want to see how crowded it was. was it a fire trap. were there ways out. what exactly -- mike they see that they doubled is what they haven't seen. there was one trial when i was a prosecutor where the jury came back with a guilty verdict. i remember that jimmy lee was trying the case and jurors said, when we looked at the photograph, there was a footprint. nobody saw the footprint. the defense didn't. the prosecutor didn't. >> wow . >> it was faint in one corner and the juror, a juror short and bam! tilted like that because they knew the type of shoe the defendant was wearing so go figure. what are they looking for? i don't know but they might find something that everybody else overlooked . >> eventually. let me get your, we hate to predict but i like to and i don't want to put you on the spot but how do you think of this all plays out? >> -- depend on the tolerance
4:11 pm
of the judge. the judge could call the game at any time a week or two out. she could say, that's enough depending on the count. if they are close, they keep them out forever. they also have a blockbuster instruction that if it is like 10-2, they say, reverse roles. you argue with the other side to see -- so they do that type of thing in trying to come of that is why it is called the blockbuster, to bust them out of their position . >> and declare a mistrial is the last resort? >> except the defense will party after that one. they get a home trial, they will figure, depending on the count, because the judge, at the end of the trial them will ask, what is the count but tell me which way is going. 9-3 for delta, nine have into the other way and that will affect the d.a.'s decision on whether to retry this or not.
4:12 pm
you want to guess? i think it will find 1 guilty and 1 not guilty if not hang. we have covered it all now . >> we will see. obviously, we will await the verdict. michael cardoza, legal interest analyst. we appreciate you coming in. a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for bay women to explore the roots. the journey of more than 100 women to trace their families roles in the civil rights movement. trying to make a plan for airplane landings to be safer. congress has an idea they hope will become law. in weather, very temperatures, cooling-off coming up. we'll let you know if the cooldown continues friday.

4:27 pm
caught in the middle of the trade war crossfire. >> reporter: a rebound on wall street despite investor concerns about an ongoing trade dispute with china. worried of potential trade wars having long term economic impacts on global growth. there is plenty of uncertainty surrounding the future of trade relations with china and america. beginning september 1, the u.s. plans to impose new 10% tariffs on many chinese goods coming into the united states. affected products include consumer items like smart phones, laptops, clothing and toys. the tariff announcement has prompted china to suspend imports of u.s. agriculture. it is bad news for american farmers who rely on china for a large percentage of their business. one iowa corn producer says they are more than prepared to shift their goods overseas citing the spread of african swine flu among china's pigs . >> they have a hole in their supply of pork and they need that to be filled by someone and so we think the united states has got its best
4:28 pm
position to do that. >> reporter: chinese officials are reportedly discussing further ways to retaliate to tariffs without harming their own economy. they could decide to focus more on their own companies for various goods and products. china could also start relying on non-american foreign companies already operating inside the country. this issue could turned into a prolonged trade dispute leading to a dicey month on wall street. at the white house, edward lawrence, fox news. still to come, more about the extreme supervised road race taking place this weekend at the cinema roadway. some of the hundreds of workers detained during a large immigration raid in mississippi have been released. an immigration expert will weigh in on what is next for those suspected of being here in the country illegally.

parameters to prevent workers from playing. some of the children of those arrested now left homeless. they are unsure of when they would see their parents again. >> reporter: >> -- -- >> a lot of people here have no record. they been here 12 to 15 years. with no record. just working and taking care of their families. >> reporter: i.c.e.'s acting director defended the arrest . >> these are not victimless crimes. illegal workers create vulnerabilities in the workplace by presenting false documents to obtain illegal employment. >> reporter: those detained were brought by bus to a military air hangar to be process. some will be deported and some will be released wearing ankle bracelets.
4:33 pm
for more on the sweep and what comes next, we are joined by bill hing, professor of law at usf. thanks for joining us. a lot of families in the ball right now. some children without one or both parents but half of those detained were released for humanitarian factors. what does that mean in this case? >> well immigration authorities always have the discretion to determine whether or not somebody is a flight risk and so if they feel that someone will show up when they are supposed to show up then they have the authority to release the person on their own recognizance or with an ankle monitor and it sounds like that is what they have done in the circumstance if they feel their is a lot of them, maybe have to 300 that have been released under these types of conditions . >> for those still detained, what is the likelihood they will be deported? >> it depends upon whether they were already had a hearing. there is a mixture, from what i gather, of the backgrounds of these various people. some apparently, have never had any immigration encounters
4:34 pm
before. those folks have a right to a hearing and so it depends upon their circumstances. if they have lived here more than 10 years and they have got a citizen child who is very ill, they might have a chance of something called cancellation removal. others who may have already had a hearing and or did not show up at hearing and got ordered in absentia, if they didn't show up and got ordered by an immigration judge to be deported, those folks could be out of here very quickly if travel documents can be arranged for them so it depends upon whether or not the individual has had a deportation hearing or not . >> and a lot of those cases, we know that some immigration attorneys always say those without orders of deportation did not know about the hearing because they did not show up because they did not know. is that actually accurate?
4:35 pm
>> that is pretty common. in fact, at the clinic we have at the university of san francisco, we have had a couple clients that were not given adequate notice. they were not told of the right date or time or the notice was sent to the law -- wrong address and the government screwed up and in those circumstances, you can make a motion to reopen the case and if the judge believes that notice was inadequate, then the person has a right to a hearing. so it really depends upon the circumstances. >> and when you talk about the families, children and we heard the girl begging for her father to be released, is there a possibility that maybe some of these families could maybe apply for an assignment claim or is that out the window at this point? >> if they have already had a hearing, it is going to be very difficult unless they can make a motion to reopen that they did not get adequate motion. however, in order to apply for asylum, there is a rule that you have a 1 your window. you have 1 your to apply the time you entered. unless there has been a severe change in circumstances in your
4:36 pm
home country, that is going to prevent you from applying for asylum if you missed that 1 your window. >> okay and in terms of what happened, i want to be clear. this is different than what is happening on the southern border where migrants are coming across and being detained for long periods of time. can you explain about how there is a difference in the two types of enforcement, what is happening? >> what happened in mississippi is labeled "interior enforcement" there was an investigation of immigration violations. at the border, it is folks that were apprehended either trying to cross illegally or presenting themselves at the port of entry and saying they wanted to apply for asylum. that is border enforcement. those individuals are subject to arrest as well and incarceration. i was at the clint, texas facility in mid june that was exposed in the media and those folks are in a different situation. those children that were
4:37 pm
detained, were also undocumented at the border. whereas the children that we saw in the video at the opening of the segment our u.s. citizen children, children that are not subject to deportation. their parents may be and incarceration but not the children in mississippi. >> before we let you go, i want to know your thoughts. do you think this is the start of more enforcement we will see in other states? >> i do, immigrant rights advocates have been bracing for this and the immigrant communities themselves in the bay area has been ready. there has been noyer rights presentations across the board. a rapid response network and all of the bay area, if folks see immigration raids happening, there are rapid response members that can be called and there will be immigration attorneys that show up right away . >> bill hing, professor of law

4:43 pm
your leg looks like it is scraping the ground. you don't touch the ground, do you? >> we do but we actually have elbows letters and knee sliders and you lean over because the further you are able to lean over, the more you are able to turn the motorcycle and that is what creates the fast lap times. >> all right. you are sort of a local guy from northern california, right? look you up in the sacramento area? >> yes, i grew up in roseville and my dad and grandfather and uncles raced motorcycles, or on the dirtbike side and they got it be into it on the at an early age. raced in europe and sign with yamaha and have been with them since 2012 racing per we have had good success together. >> reporter: you have had a lot of success. you are a 3 time moto america champion. that is pretty good. congratulations on your success. what you think sets you apart from the field? what are you doing differently? is it the bike when you ride, is it you co-ops douglas?, is

4:46 pm
the circuit. it is tight and twisty. not too many places to rest and honestly, not one of the fastest tracks we go to. we go to tracks where we get over 190 miles an hour but here we are maybe 160 or so which is still pretty fast. >> fast enough for me. before we wrap, you know think the folks are thinking about this at home. there must've been times you lost control of one of those terms. what is the worst crash you have had? >> man, i've had, quite a few but luckily i got a really good set of sponsors, helmets and all kinds of things to keep me safe. some of the best quality protection you can get so i mean w >> that is why you are standing here now . >> yes . >> you want to say to the kids, wear a helmet, right? but that is for sure . >> we really appreciate you stopping by . >> thank you . >> cameron bouvier will be racing this weekend at sonoma raceway . >> the only thing missing is you getting on the bike and trying it out but i know you won't dare. >> did you say that off-camera,
