6:01 pm
force to better understand this problem. the mayor said that's a no for him. >> we know what the problem is already. we don't need a task force. >> reporter: ferrell said instead the d.a. and police need to partner up. >> they always need to work closely together. they've had different relationships over time. we need our da's office and court system to be strong. >> it's shocking how big of problem this is the thieves are emboldened to do it in the middle of the day on a busy sidewalk and get away it. >> reporter: o'connor said he did not mean to attack the mayor by sending out this tweet. he just wanted to get his attention. he was certainly successful in that endeavor. he said he would like to see police get more resources to tackle this problem because there's so many in this city. something needs to be done. >> since the mayor isn't willing to support the d.a.'s whole task force thing does that mean the whole idea is dead in the water? >> reporter: not necessarily. it certainly does not have any
6:02 pm
support or a lot of support. i shouldn't say any support. it doesn't have a lot of support right now inside city hall, but that could change. the d.a.'s office is hoping the new administration would support this and that could change the conversation. >> susie steimle at city hall, thanks. breaking news, federal immigration officials just released new information on sweeping arrests across northern california, our ken bastida live in the newsroom right now with i.c.e. calling out oakland's mayor. >> i.c.e. agents have been busy since sunday. that's even after word of their enforcement activities leaked out. we now know they have arrested 150 people for violating immigration laws. that number includes one arrest in bay point and another in san francisco. i.c.e. agents also arrested a north bay construction worker, snapchat video capturing the arrest of armando nunes salgado at his home in napa. kpix5 has learned that nunes salgado has a pretty dangerous
6:03 pm
past. he was once on i.c.e.'s most wanted list for charges of assault with a deadly weapon. this evening i.c.e. is directing some of its fire toward oakland mayor libby schaaf. saturday she sent out a warning about the impending raids. the mayor said she got the information from credible sources and it was her duty in her words to tell the public as a mayor of a sanctuary city. the i.c.e. director slammed the warning saying 850 illegal aliens and public safety threats remain at large in the community and i have to believe some of them were able to elude us thanks to the mayor's irresponsible decision. unlike politicians who attempt to undermine i.c.e.'s critical position, our officers will uphold their sworn duty to protect public safety." now there is also a question about whether the mayor violated any laws with that warning. this evening i.c.e. is saying that it increased the
6:04 pm
risk for its officers and we called the mayor's office for comment on that. we'll have more on this story throughout the evening. >> ken, thanks. rape survivors in santa clara county say they are being victimized all over again by the justice system. kpix5's maria medina is live in san jose with a new push to clear the backlog of these rape testing kits. maria? >> reporter: that's right. a county supervisor wants all backlogged rape kits processed by the end of this year and it's all because of one woman. >> there are 400,000 rape kits that have not been tested in this country. >> reporter: when valerie stinson watched a movie recently, she had no idea she would be behind a huge change in her community. >> i'd seen the film i am evidence. >> right now my name is on a box on a shelf. it has never been tested. >> reporter: the movie exposes the number of untested rape kits in the u.s. valerie went on a mission to find out just how many sat on shelves in the
6:05 pm
south bay. >> i was surprised that there really hadn't been much reporting done on that and so the absence of information was a concern. >> reporter: so valerie e- mailed santa clara county supervisor cindy chavez telling her something needed to be done. >> and i got a response within a few days. >> her name is valerie and i wanted to say a very special thank you to you. >> reporter: today less than a month after the e-mail supervisor chavez asked the board to consider making significant changes in the processing of rape kits. first, getting all untested kits through the lab by year end and future kits within 30 days. >> anything we can do to alleviate their suffering, we should absolutely do. >> reporter: right now in santa clara county valley medical is the only place victims can get tested. the board also talked about offering other locations for survivors. all this change started with one woman's e-mail. what would you like to say to the rape victims who you're basically giving a voice to?

6:07 pm
educators do voluntary work for free or at a reduced hourly rate which include tutoring before, during lunch and after school and so on and those types of things would not get done. >> reporter: the district has offered teachers a one time 1 1/3% bonus, but they say i it's not enough to keep pace -- say it's not enough to keep pace with the bay's high cost of living. the district said it's the best they can do without breaking the bank and the two sides need to make sure they find responsible ways to balance the budget while increasing compensation. i'm confident in the power of fremont unified staff working together." the teachers union hopes just the threat of work to rule will encourage students and their parents to put pressure on the district to break the budget impasse. >> we would not jump into something like work to rule immediately or without careful consideration. >> i believe that teachers in general don't get paid enough,
