breaking right now on "nbc 10 news today," the travel ban still on hold, this as a federal appeals court denies an emergency bid by the trump administration to bring it back immediately. not one of our area's finest. that's why police in the lehigh valley say they need your help to find this alleged cop imposter targeting women on the road. call it an aerial attack. it seems birds are leaving their mark on just about everything in trenton. city leaders say they have a plan to take their town back. good morning. this is "nbc 10 news today." i'm rosemary connor. it's 10:00 on this sunday. plenty to talk about. let's beginning with
meteorologist krystal klei who is tracking chilly temperatures outside. we're slowly going to warm up. >> it was so cold yesterday. in the afternoon we only hit a high of 36 degrees: 36 in philadelphia. obvious we'll be warmer today than we were yesterday. that was our afternoon temperatures. now looking at warmer temperatures. vineland at 37. 39 degrees already in atlantic city. allentown 31, mt. pocono, 25. we were in single digits at this time yesterday. it's colder than it truly is outside. a lot of us in the upper 20s to low 30s. you want the layers, but you're not going to need as much bulk as you did yesterday. the clouds are picking up through out the entire area. they'll linger throughout most of the day.
a little more sun later in the afternoon is possible. this is really the focus. today we're warmer, clouds different than yesterday, breezy in the afternoon. the next big change is the temperatures continuing to climb into your workweek. we'll talk about how high they go and when rain returns across the region. a federal appeals court rejected the trump administration's emergency bid to reverse a temporary block on the president's travel bid. we know there's a hearing tomorrow on all this. it began on friday when a federal judge halted the ban on immigrants and refugees from seven mostly muslim countries. that's when visa holders began rushing to board flights bound for the u.s. mr. trump has been reacting on twitter. one of his tweets reads, the judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. bad people are very happy.
nbc 10's matt delucia is live at philly international and has new details about a local family trying to get back here. matt? >> rosemary, the decision this morning basically allows people with valid visas to continue coming to the u.s. some of the folks will be the assali family. we just got this photo within the last 30 minutes or so. it shows the family making their way to the united states. you might remember this family tried to get here to philadelphia international a week ago. they were turned away and told to go back to syria. there were protests here in the arrivals hall as a result of that. now folks like them, their families and others are very happy about this decision, but others are also angry about it.
reunions like this one happening at airports across the country. families waiting for loved ones left hanging in the balance. >> it was really frustrated. i was in line when he signed the order. >> the president's executive order had been in effect for a week until a federal judge put a temporary stop to it friday night. since then, airports like philly international have reopened to visa holders and refugees from the seven countries in question. the question now, what's next? >> it is confusing and scary. >> reporter: the justice department has until 2:59 eastern time tomorrow morning to file a response to today's ruling. president trump is not happy. neither are his supporters. >> we need to address what we have in our country first. i think it's necessary. it's dangerous for americans. we want to feel safe in our own homes. >> for now, a rush to u.s. soil, not knowing if or when they would get another shot. >> i hope this nightmare ends
soon. that was nbc's matt delucia reporting. demonstrations continue in our area during president trump's first 100 days in office. 2,000 people took part in the march for humanity in center city. the group was protesting president trump's travel ban. now, aside from the traffic troubles, philadelphia police tell us that the march was peaceful. in fact, philadelphia police inspector joe sullivan with the police department's homeland security, he thanked his force on twitter and tweeted a vp visit, two large demonstrations and marches, zero arrests and zero negative incidents. very proud of my officers. let's head to connecticut where the leader of an anti trump protest is under arrest. you can see demonstrators blocking a highway in new haven. state police say the protest delayed an ambulance. that forced paramedics to
perform a procedure on the patient inside the ambulance instead of inside the hospital. the protest organizer is accused of inciting a riot. this weekend in west palm bea beach, florida, hundreds marched to the president's mar-a-lago resort. the protest focused on a range of presidential actions and orders taken since inauguration last month. the travel ban will be the top issue on nbc's "meet the press." that comes up in about 25 minutes. earlier this morning, i talked to moderator chuck todd about this battle and whether it's headed to the supreme court. take a listen. >> i don't see how it doesn't, unless -- there's one way it doesn't end at the supreme court. that's if the trump administration sort of takes a sober look at the current judicial landscape. the state of hawaii became the latest to file suit.
there are multiple suits, even if they win one in one place, they could lose in another, creating almost the need for the supreme court to make this final decision. >> chuck will be talking exclusively with house speaker paul ryan and house minority leader nancy pelosi, plus talking live to vice president mike pence. it comes your way on "meet the press" this morning at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. in camden county there are still no charges, no arrests in the death of a 2-year-old boy. this weekend nbc 10 obtained the 911 call in the unsolved homicide case. the call gives us the frantic moments that led up to the toddler's death. take a listen to this. >> he's dying, please. >> county officials released the call to nbc 10 yesterday in response to an open records request. the november call came from a nanny in pennsauken. she told the 911 operator the toddler in her care was throwing up blood. the boy ended up dying at some
point after that eight-minute call. the prosecutor's office in camden county is handling the case. again, to arrests. police in lehigh valley need your help. they're trying to find a man posing as an officer. police say the man pictured here pulled over a woman in lower saucon township claiming she had a brake light out. the woman realized the man was not a police officer and drove off. the same speck was wanted for a similar incident in south white hall township. police say the man was driving a white suv with a red and blue emergency light flashing on the dashboard. new from trenton, watch where you walk. birds are making a mess of just about everything. take a look at this video just into nbc 10. the trenton mayor's office says the migrating birds are a constant issue, leaving the signs everywhere. the city has plans to use
