president trump: today's supreme court ruling just coming out, a tremendous success, a tremendous victory for the american people.(ken) the u.s. supreme court is upholding the president's travel ban in a 5-4 ruling. but not everyone is calling it a victory.(pam) this case involved the third version of the travel ban which has been in effect since december. natasha chen explains how we got here. today the supreme court ruled 5-4 that presiden't trump's travel restrictions on people from seven countries will stay in effect. president donald trump: thng shows that all of the attacks from the media and the democrat politicians are wrong and they turned out to be very wrong and what we're looking for as republicans, i can tell you is strong borders, no crime. the policy restricts nationals from iran, north korea, syria, libya, yemen, somalia...and certain venezuelan government officials ...from entering the united states. but this travel ban is very different from the first travel ban issued in
january of 2017.mass protests followed at various airports across the country, lawsuits were filed, and the ban was blocked.in march 2017 - a second travel ban was unveiled - and blocked again. the trump administrtation released the most recent version of the travel ban in september of last year.in december, the supreme court allowed this newest version to take effect pending appeal. the state of hawaii - as lead plaintiff - argued against the ban, saying one - that the preshad overstepped his authority.and two - that the order violates the constitution's establishment clause- which bars the government from favoring one religion over another.at issue are some of the comments then candidate- trump made during his campaign - "donald j. trump is calling for a complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states"but today - chief justice john roberts said the travel ban fit quote "squarely within the scope of presidential authority." in washington, i'm natasha chen reporting.

be the result of sewage spills. soti think i've seen signs out here that talk about the algae but i haven't seen anything that's mentioned sewage.the grand jury report notes that the most likely source of the sewage contamination is probably aging sewer lines that are damaged or overwhelmed during big rain storms. the report also conlcudes that east bay regional parks and oakland public works need to do a better job of communicating with the public.in a statement tuesday, regional parks said "the park district has received the grand jury report and takes public health and safety very seriously. when notified of a city of oakland sewer system overflow, the park district immediately closes the lake, posts signage, and tests for water quality. the lake is only reopened once safe according to california state health and safety standards."the grand jury report also reccommends that sewer repair crews and third party contractors who work on sewer lines, recieve additonal training and keep detailed records of their work.
