5:41 am
it is 5:41. if you're traveling through the
5:42 am
north bay, grab your umbrella. we are tracking showers through the evening hours. right now most areas of dry. 48 in dublin. wind speeds are call. it will be muggy out there. we are talking about 60s and 70s. i'll break down our next bigger rain chance coming up in just a bit. we're probably talking the same numbers as far as the speed. 65 in palo alto. here's 101. we'll show you what things look like on 101 in the city. all new for you this morning, a fire sweeps through a homeless camp last night in los gatos. this is video just into our newsroom showing the flames. i want you to listen closely. you can hear the fire popping. it happened 12:30 on highway 17 at the main street overcross. one lane was shut down while crews worked to put out the fire. it is back open now.
5:43 am
the cause of the fire is under investigation. no one was hurt. as you can see, it destroyed tents and several other items. 5:42. this morning we are learning another race horse died at the santa anita racetrack. it marks the 23rd horse death at the facility since december. the horse injured his right front leg and fell in a race on the turf yet. santa anita just reopened racing this weekend after being closed for nearly a month. the track is putting new restrictions in place. there are new rules on certain medications that can be given to animals. another bans the use of whips, exempt during races where safety needs to be ensured. well, two of the biggest names in the college admissions scandal are due to appear before a judge this week. felicity huffman and lori loughlin. more parents could be charged soon. federal prosecutors are looking to expand the case which features a newport beach college

5:45 am
through long beach, straight to mexico. so a trade deficit hard to calculate. we have a trade surplus actually. he said our detention are max said out. we will take no more illegals. if you come to the u.s. to ask for an asylum, you are not an illegal. you are not breaking the law. no doubt we have a crisis at the border. more people on the southern border that we can process. congress has taken no action so far. something needs to be done. the border is hard to define. does the president include airports, people and goods coming in on planes. cargo ships, cruise ships, vacationers? the bureau of customs and border has not been given that information. here's dick durbin. >> when the president says he's going to close the border, that is a totally unrealistic boast on his part. what we need to do is focus on

5:47 am
>> someone is in first place. marcus, you came in second there. >> i guess so. let's take a look at that. that looks horrible. but i did have virginia -- no, i didn't. i was like, oh, i did well in something. oh, well. >> what about you, mike? >> no, no, no. >> a lot of xs there. >> a lot of xs. >> how about kari? >> she got auburn. look at that. >> there you go. there's our scoreboard right there. >> why am i smile something that's ridiculous. it was a nice run. >> 1% of the brackets picked the final four. >> one analyst had three of the four. pretty amazing. >> wow, that's pretty good. >> i was impressed. there was a reason why he's an analyst. >> this is the year we probably
