(vicki) ice agents could soon show up at courthouses to make deportation arrests. federal immigration officials say the move is to capture convicted criminals and gang members. (grant) joining us now to talk about the new guidelines... is san francisco district attorney george gascon. federal immigration authorities have formalized the practice of sending deportation agents to federal, state and local courthouses to make arrests, dismissing complaints from judges and advocacy that it instills fear among crime victims, witnesses and family members.wednesday's directive from u.s. immigration and customs enforcement said it will enter courthouses only to capture
specific targets, like convicted criminals, gang members, public safety threats and immigrants who have been previously deported or ordered to leave. family, friends and witnesses won't be picked up for deportation but ice leaves a caveat for "special circumstances."the policy, signed by ice acting director thomas homan, says immigration agents should generally avoid arrests in non-criminal areas of the court, like family court and small claims, unless it has supervisor approval. (grant)
nearly 8-thousand marijuana convictions dating back to 19-75 are eligible for re- sentencing... or could be completely thrown out. on wednesday, san francisco district attorney george gascon annouced the process will now be much easier... those convicted will no longer have to come in or file any paperwork. for thousands of people, re-sentencing could mean a chance at a new life. the d-a's office estimates it will take up to a year to
chemicals it considers ápossibleá causes of cancer. acrylamide-- created when coffee beans are roasted-- is considered one of them. a lawsuit filed in los angeles targets companies that make or sell coffee. according to the suit....the defendants failed to warn coffee drinkers that they may be exposed to the chemical.(grant) the suit seeks to impose fines and force the companies to post warnings. coffee companies say the acrylamide levels in coffee should be considered safe under state law. they also say the health benefits of coffee outweigh the risks. (grant) coming up... hear how the warriors are responding to the rumors... that lebron james could join them on the court next season.
would be interested in meeting with the warriors this offseason. mark carpenter...joins us to break down this unlikely, but not entirely impossible scenario. what's going on mark? after what happened with kevin durant, we should know better by now that anything could happen. lebron james...is set to become a free agent this offseason and it's widely thought he'll be leaving cleveland. áif he does, he'll have several options in front of him, but until yesterday, áno one saw golden state as a possibility. and it seems, even kd doesn't think that is going to happen. "bullsáát, bullsáát. but you know, in this league, it's just like a couple years ago with me coming here. nobody would have thought that so, it's part of me as a basketball player, let's just worry about basketball. but on the other side, it's a business as well." but lebron james...joining the team that's defeated him in the
finals in two of the last three years...seems pretty farfetched. first off, it's unknown if the warriors...would even want to do that transaction at all. bringing over the three-time champ and four-time mvp would entail...creating at least 25- million dollars in salary space...áand most likely parting ways with klay thompson, andre iguodala and several other players. durant understands why some would be interested in this, but he's not willing to entertain video game scenarios. "it's fun to see that suspense, but we are just getting away from the real game. you know we getting away from what really matters and that's just looking at ball and getting better. so moreso, people just enjoy that type of stuff and i get it. it's also just going to make our game bigger, but i don't know if we want to grow it that way, you know what i mean." and here's another reason why a move like this would not be easy. "he's gotta get number 23 from draymond." it's also worth mentioning the warriors have the highest payroll in the league. as of now, there has not been any reaction from
lebron james himself.

the warriors have argubly one or if not the best roster in the n-b-a... with four all-stars. to think lebron james would join steph curry and kevin durant this offseason would seem to be a joke rather than a reality. according to an espn report late last night... james would listen to the warriors if they create a max salary slot to sign him in free agency. golden state at this moment is looking to add the cavs star to their roster. lebron, who doesn't have a great relationship with owner, dan gilbert and with the team's recent struggles... is expected to decline his player option of over 35-million dollars. warriors forward, kevin durant is not buying the lebron rumors. "bullsáát, bullsáát. but you know, in this league, it's
just like a couple years ago with me coming here. nobody would have thought that so, it's part of me as a basketball player, let's just worry about basketball. but on the other side, it's a business as well." "he's gotta get number 23 from draymond." if the warriors end up pursuing lebron... he would take a pay cut to his standards. lebron wouln't make more than 25-million dollars. it would be nearly impossible for the warriors to keep all four all stars. klay thompson or draymond green would need to restructure their contracts.
