political goals. secretary of defense chuck hagel was slow to sign off on the releases. which created tension inside the white house. syria is one of the released detainees. his attorney spoke to us via skype. >> why do you think he's been released now? >> unfortunately as is often the case with guantanamo, the prisoners end up being effectively hostages to u.s. partisan politics and had nothing to do with him. every single u.s. agency with a stake in national security affairs has signed off on his transfer and his certified that he poses no threat to anyone. >> reporter: upon their arrival the men were believed to have been examined at this military hospital. uruguay has no mosque. the country of 3.3 million is home to only about 300 ms. limbs. uruguay's president is himself a former political prisoner. this brings the total number of detainees left in guantanamo to 136. 67 of the men have been cleared for release or transfer. but they remain in limbo until
the u.s. finds a country that will take them. don daler, cbs news, new york. three good samaritans were killed in the florida everglades. eight other people were rushed to the hospital. here's what happened after sunset last night. a driver hit a black bear on a two lane road. and then three people got out of another car to help. they were run down and killed by a third car. the drive who are hit the bear in the first place was not hurt. right now in the felt means, a powerful typhoon is bearing down on the capital of manila. hours earlier, big waves and 100-mile-per-hour winds ripped through coastal communities in central philippines. and at least 21 people are dead. the same region where 6,000 people were killed from last year's typhoon haiyan. this time, nearly a million people were moved to safer grounds. super bowl 50 in santa clara is still more than a year away. but the host committee is already working to make a difference. it's kicked off its charity campaign to raise $150,000 for bay area food banks.

then remains just kind of slow and go out to the duction texas. we also had -- dublin interchange. the metering lights were turned on a half hour late this morning. going to the bay bridge expect bigger than usual backups. and of course the east shore freeway is in the red. but the accident san pablo dam road is not helping that commute either. up to nearly 50 minutes. that's huge for this time in the morning from the bridge to the maze. if you're traveling through the sunol grade. southbound 680 just very slow. probably some fog in this area as well. coming out of pleasanton and all the way down into sunol like i mentioned. golden gate bridge the marin county commute gets two thumbs up. no major issues right now between san laugh jell and the golden gate bridge -- rafael and the golden gate bridge golden gate bridge. an interesting week with roberta. one of the biggest storms in the last decade is poised in position to move into the bay area beginning late wednesday afternoon in the north bay and then spreading across the entire area through friday night. all the computer models
completely agree and so does brian hackney that we have heavy rain moving this way. right now hi-def doppler radar is reporting a smattering of light rain showers around clear lake and also from yucaipa along highway 101 to of lynn. other than that, you'll just need the umbrella north of the golden gate bridge. we have mostly cloudy skies. and we do have some areas of dense fog in throughout the tri- valley and also santa rosa where visibility is about a half a mile. livermore currently 50 degrees and oakland in the mid 50s. sfo, now reporting delays one hour 12 minutes on some arriving flights due to the low ceiling. again, light showers north of the golden gate bridge. heavy rain and wind by thursday and friday. here's futurecast. and again just slight rain showers today. otherwise mostly cloudy and southeast winds at 15 miles per hour. here comes wednesday, wanted to call in the 72 -- computer model observation. so you can get a good idea on the precipitation and that's the leading band coming in in the overnight hours on
thursday. both commutes will be virtually affected and by the times this said and done, six inches of rain in the wettest locations and one to three inches across the urban areas, on top soft so much rated soil. -- of saturated soil. 73 degrees today in gilroy. wow unseasonably mild conditions. here's the extended forecast. brace yourself and get ready and bring in the lawn decorations for thursday, friday. wind up to 50 miles per hour. all right, thanks roberta. and we do agree by the way. 18 states are suing president obama over the recent action on immigration. >> with more on the case is legal and political analyst melissa griffin caen. >> i checked the morning and now 20 states. at least 20 states have signed up to be part of this lawsuit. there are almost all from the east coast from alabama to maine. they got together to file the lawsuit against the president because of his recent
immigration actions. now as a reminder the president issued an executive order to allow undocumented persons who have lived here for at least five years and who have children who are here legally to avoid deportation. the lawsuit says the president is nullifying laws that were passed by congress. when he did this. the u.s. constitution says that the president shall and i quote -- take care that the laws be faithfully executed. according to the lawsuit, the president isn't faithfully executing certain laws. in fact, they say he's torpedoing the laws and they cite to a law that requires the deportation of undocumented persons. there's another law that says that if you're undocumented and you have a child who is a citizen, you have to go to your home country and wait ten years for a visa. those are the kind of laws they're saying the president is not taking care to execute. as a result, they claim that we are going to experience another humanitarian crisis like the one we had earlier this year if the executive order is allowed to take effect. >> well, other presidents have issued executive orders on the
subject of immigration. so how is this different? >> well, in papers filed by the plaintiffs in this case, they say that this scope of obama's order is bigger than anything we've seen before. prior to this the biggest law enacted by congress forget executive orders, through the legislative process only affected 2.7 million immigrants. and obama's order will affect four to five million immigrants and just can't do something bigger than what congress has ever done. >> so you're saying it's up to 20 states who are suing him now? >> yes. >> what are the states saying will happen if this all goes through? >> they say that -- you're right. bring a lawsuit you have to show that you're going to be harmed right? you have to prove that there's going to be a pain that you're going to experience. and in? case the states say that once other nations hear about this new program, the border is going to be flooded with people trying to come here. they say it's going to you know stretch their social services and that's going to be the problem. >> so where do we go if here? >> the obama administration actually did a lot of research before they issued this
executive order. so they feel that they're on legal solid ground. however, the case was filed in texas. and a judge in texas might be more friendly to the plaintiffs. and the states here. we'll know in a few weeks whether the judge will put a hold on obama's immigration order or whether it will go ahead and go into effect while this all gets litigated. stay tuned. >> thank you. more violent protests in berkeley. and more businesses damaged. coming up, we'll give you anen close look and talk to a -- up close look and talk to a protester. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
