nature this is, and throughout the day today we'll see less rain with just anywhere from .1 to .2. some sunshine in san jose. sunny breaks here and there. and we'll look for a kind of mild to muggy afternoon. heavier rain to the second half of your weekend. i'll time that out for you coming up. >> thank you, lisa. breaking news out of the east bay. police are investigating an early-morning shooting that left one person dead. it happened just before 1:30 this morning near maybell avenue. the victim was taken to the hospital but died. thousands much people expected to take part in a protest against president trump's travel ban. as first reported by our partners at hoodline, they say the protests will target racist and exclusionary executive orders. president trump signed the order last friday banning travel from seven predominantly muslim countries into the u.s. nearly 10,000 people say they
8:02 am
will attend the protest event. organized on facebook. they plan to gather at 3:00 at civic center plaza. the state department said it will comply with the judge's order reversing visa applications following president trump's travel ban, which means visa holders from the seven countries can fly to the u.s. once again. last night a federal judge in washington issued a temporary restraining order blocking the order after that state's attorney general filed a request calling the ban harmful to state's residents and economies. trump said the opinion of this so-called judge which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country is ridiculous and will be overturned. >> the law is a powerful thing. it has the ability to hold everybody accountable to it, and that includes the president of the united states. >> white house press secretary sean spicer issued this statement saying, at the earliest possible time, the department of justice intends to
8:03 am
file an emergency stay of this order. and defend the executive order of the president, which we believe is lawful and appropriate. abc 7 news reporter sergio quintana has the story. >> reporter: julia wilson has been helping coordinate volunteers at the airport since last weekend when massive crowds turned out to protest president trump's executive order. the restraining order had immediate implications. wilson showed me the e-mail she had been exchanging from a syrian refugee in syria. >> i feel strongly of upsupport, i will finally see my wife and son. >> reporter: the white house quickly vowed to challenge the judge's restraining order. but it's not clear how long it will take to work itself out in court. >> i'm not sure whether they would hold a hearing. they would probably ask for briefs to be filed very quickly.
8:04 am
i would think this order would stay in place at least over the weekend. >> reporter: the federal restraining order is just one of many filed. this woman has been unsure about her future here. >> this is going to further affect my studies here in stanford, because i'm from yemen. >> reporter: yemen is one of the primarily seven muslim countries mentioned in the travel ban. central california man and his 12-year-old daughter are scheduled to fly to san francisco tomorrow after being stranded for a week because of the executive order. ahmed ali, a u.s. citizen, went to east africa to bring her daughter back after she received her immigrant visa. they were denied entry to their plane home last week. but sfo officials directed the airline to let them board the plane headed to sfo tomorrow afternoon. there is some confusion in
8:05 am
the muslim community this morning following the ruling. katie marzullo has that part of the story. >> reporter: this gathering at the muslim community center in santa clara was intended to help immigrants navigate the new travel restrictions. word came of the temporary restraining order putting a halt to the ban. >> we're all excited. >> reporter: hussein is from yemen. he has dual citizenship. he's supposed to go on a business trip in two weeks. >> even though i hold a u.s. passport, my family are kind of worried that i might get held up in the airports for longer hours and they do not want to think about the possibility. more than likely i will cancel the trip. >> it's not that the judicial order is unclear, it's that it's unclear whether that will be honored, and unclear whether or not that will be properly enforced, because of genuine misunderstanding or some other confusion or deliberate disobeyance of the order.
8:06 am
>> reporter: this man's mother is still in the refugee camp. he's saving money to bring her here. >> it's been a while. >> reporter: hope tempered by uncertainty. in santa clara, katie marzullo, abc 7 news. >> stay on top of this fast-moving story with the abc 7 news app. get breaking news updates as they happen. salvation army has put up 19 seniors forced out of their homes by a fire in san francisco's chinatown. it started yesterday morning at pacific and stockton streets. one person was hurt. seven businesses were damaged. the city's disaster relief fund will help those business owners. new details on a couple found dead in berkeley last month. acute carbon monoxide poisoning killed valerie and roger and their two cats. police found them inside their

8:08 am
>> one of the things we're looking for in advertising is breaking through the noise, breaking through the clutter. these adds don't so much sell you a product as an emotion. they sell you an ideology. >> reporter: ideology is the theme millions of face as they rock the super bowl this weekend. where ads like this one tackle social issues. >> what do i tell my daughter. >> reporter: audi's ad features a young girl racing and a resonating message. >> it's all very much in the public conscienceness right now. >> reporter: showing an immigrant's struggle and ultimate success. >> it's definitely political. they just don't want to say it. >> reporter: in the east bay, abc 7 news. lisa's here. who's ready for some more rain. >> yeah, but probably won't care too much about tomorrow, a lot of super bowl activity. it will come late in the day. a break in san jose.

8:32 am
stop to it immediately. nationwide. >> reporter: no word on whether the white house will appeal. the justice department saying in a statement it looks forward to reviewing the court's written order and will determine next steps. in a virginia court, a justice department attorney said more than 100,000 visas have been revoked. >> the number 100,000 sucked the air out of my lungs. >> reporter: the state department said the number of people who had their visas revoked is actually about 60,000. but amid the fallout from images like these, families reunited after being detained at airports across the country, the white house initially focused on a much smaller number. >> we had 109 people who were temporarily detained. they're all in. but they were temporarily detained to make sure that the safety of the other 324 million americans was put first. i don't see how that's a big problem. >> reporter: it is becoming increasingly clear tens of
