to sanctuary cities. is this practical or political? >> well, i think the way he did it is political. the irony is if we're going to deal with this crisis, refugee crisis at the border, ironically this is actually part of the temporary solution. it's notten like the one in miami. we asked other cities and states to help out as you relocate folks. somalis were relocated to minneapolis, things like that. ironically, it is part of a temporary solution. but it is sort of the way the president went about it made it seem as if it's being weaponized and done in some odd punishment kind of way. if he means it as part of a large solution, i think there will be a bunch of states and governors and mayors willing to help out on this. >> big picture question, which you can. chuck. senate republicans seem to be drifting away from president trump. think about the national declaration emergency, refusal to appeal obamacare, rejection
of nominees. what is it? is this more about questionable policies or fears about their own re-election chances? >> the answer to that is yes to both. they don't like how he's gone about this. they're making it difficult. they've got their heads handed to them on pre-existing conditions. health care is very frustrating to them. i do think this, the decision so sack everybody at dhs really has irritated some senate republicans that normally don't push back as hard on this administration. even mitch mcconnell is calling for bipartisan meetings with pelosi almost without the president to deal with this. it is possible that the president's rhetoric and sort of this where every solution he has is just a hammer, that that might break some senate republicans, at least on this asylum issue, alone. you we will see. we have said it before, larry. they talk like they're upset but
they vote differently. >> chuck, thanks very much. good show coming up. chuck will have an interview with kellyanne conway and exclusive discussion with washington governor and county jay ainslie at 8:00 right after our newscast. larry will be back in 40 minutes, right, for our weekly political segment. we will dig deeper into president trump's latest border plans. we look forward to seeing you and hearing your insight. larry, thanks very much. we will turn now to gun violence and a personal message demanding national action. students and activists met in burlingame. some were from parkland, florida where 17 students were shot to death last year. jackie speier joined them and talked about ways to reduce gun violence in the united states. she said congress has an obligation to make common sense federal laws that require background checks to own a gun. she said congress is paralyzed because the national rifle
association has too much influence. >> as we move across america, we have turned into a killing field. 40,000 americans are killed every year, and it's got to stop. we are the only industrialized nation that has this bloodshed that goes on in our neighborhoods. >> millennials replace baby boomers in congress. >> fire at the coachella music festival had fans running from the flames. fire broke out in a mobile shower unit, we're told, at the festival's camp browned around 2:00 start morning. campers poeted this video to twitter. one shower unit was destroyed, another one damaged. coachella kicked off friday. more than 100,000 people attend the southern california event each year. they have good weather down there? >> it's always hot. but i think people who go to coachella are fully aware of

♪ i've slain your dreaded dragon. for saving the kingdom what doth thou desire? my lord? hey good knight. where are you going? ♪ ♪ climbing up on solsbury hill ♪ grab your things, salutations. coffee that is a cup above is always worth the quest. nespresso. tis all i desire. did thou bring enough for the whole kingdom? george: nespresso, what else? about bussing asylum-seeking immigrants to sanctuary cities until their cases are heard in court. >> welcome back. president trump asked about buffing immigrants to sanctuary cities until their cases are heard in court. it could be even years until an immigration judge rules. nbc bay area larry gurstin
stkwroeupjoins us. >> the more innocent explanation is to relieve congestion brought about by the asylum seekers at border cities are tens of thousands are stored, housed, if you will, until hear dates. but that's another one. the more sinister interpretation would center on the president using them to embarrass democratic members of congress from the sanctuary cities with the hope of getting democrats to support more strict immigration policies. such a move would double down on a frustrating issue he can't manage to control, leaving would-be asylum seekers pawns in the political chess game of sorts between the president and congress. >> if you can't control it, why focus so much on it. >> well, the answer of course depends upon one's interpretation of the whole border situation. it's never easy. buff the president defines the problem as protecting americans
from teeming numbers of gangsters, murderers who seek to ruin the country. he argued that the would be asylum seekers are not genuine and they threaten the well-being of our culture. his critics have another approach. they say the border crisis stems from the cruelty endured by the citizens of hon tkouduras, guat, el salvador. 60% of whom are families have come to the united states with a hope of having safer lives. so depending upon one's political values, the border crisis is about unwanted people ruining our country or desperately threatened people seeking a safe haven. >> this is a guy that voters took from the business world, the outsider, and then injected him into the swamp in washington, d.c. so a guy who is so focused on the economy, brings this business background, why focus so much attention on an
unfixable problem and lavish so much -- i don't know what the right word is -- so much on illegal immigration. >> are accept especially since the economy could be his, excuse me, trump card, congress is going really well. that's a very good question. a couple factors come to play here. first, from the day donald trump came down the escalator, right, we all remember that moment, to proclaim his candidacy for president, he focused on illegal immigration for america's wi a'. second, the president has made it not only a primary goal but a focal point for his re-election. look, forget what the calendar says, forget about this day. for this reason alone, we're in the midst of the trump re-election campaign. and that takes us to the third factor. the president believes if he doesn't put a stop to illegal immigration, he will disappoint his base and jeopardize his re-election. so it all gets wrapped up.
>> so you are saying this works with the people he needs the most. >> yeah. >> where do we go from here? >> now we're getting into uncharted territory, as we off do here. every time the president plays the immigration card, illegal immigration card, he feeds his base. no doubt about it. but the more important thing is, does he chase other people away? he stands in the low 40s, not enough to live in 2020. what we don't know is to what degree those who view the policies as harmful and unkind are so upset with the president they will just support opponents who favor more humane policies for people seeking freedom and asylum. that's why the president is playing a dangerous game. he's already expressed support for splitting up families at the border, closing down the southern border altogether, and declaring a national emergency over funding his border wall. each step would have serious repercussions constitutionally and politically, which is why all the moves may have an impact
on the 2020 presidential election. chris, the campaign is now. we may not know who the democrat is but it is full bore. >> what are the chances that he focuses on this now but then he moves on to something economic and focuses on that and allows immigration to be swept under the rug. >> his advisers told him record low unemployment. tout this. tout this. the economy is going great. but he is fixed on this because he believes this will be the cornerstone of his success. >> everybody will be watch stphrg there you go. >> larry, thank you very much. the lack check of weather after this. pdates and your complete forecast so you are ready to get out the door and take on the day. plus - the latest headlines from the bay area to capitol hill. join us monday morning for today in the bay from 4:30 to 7.
