4:18 pm
is under way. excitement is high for this year's catch after a disastrous season last season that didn't start until march. that's when warmer than usual ocean temperatures led to a huge alga bloom that contaminated crabs with acid that was toxic pushing the system back five months. >> it is so wonderful that these guys and gals can get out on time and get us our thanksgiving crab and they are clean and beautiful and i can't wait to see the boat this afternoon. >> now, there is some acid showing up in parts of the northern coast which means at least for now authorities are banding crab fishing on the sonoma line. the high cost of housing is causing people to move out of the state. the number of people leaving california for somewhere less
4:19 pm
expensive. >> a lot of locals are not surprised by this new data. for example, we are here in the cammian neighborhood and a three bedroom house that is only 1500 square feet is selling for almost one million dollars. the real estate data firm core logic found that for every home buyer coming into california there are three that are selling their homes. the sellers are moving completely out of the golden state. they found between 2007 to 2014, 600 people left the state of california and turning to state more affordable. one homeowner is thinking about moving to colorado or north carolina. >> i have four kids. we have been talking about leaving because we realize that when our kids graduate, they can't survive. they literally will be living with us until they are 35

4:27 pm
and his policy proposals and found that many of them violate the constitutional rights. freedom of speech and freedom of religion and our protections like due process and equal protection. my biggest message to the president-elect donald trump would be this. he needs to change course on a number of his policies, otherwise the aclu will see him in court. an. >> so what is going to be the a c lu primary focus. one issue off the bat that you will try to target. >> if there was one issue i don't think we would have the kind of outpouring and support. it is a number of issues. his statements to band moslems is not only discriminatory but goes up against the 1st amend principle of freedom of religion and he might try to address that up in some other way but he has made it clear that he wants to keep moslems
4:28 pm
out of the united states. his proposal for mass deportation will lead to all kinds of racial profilings and the list goes on. i am picking two. the statement that president- elect donald trump has made and the policies he has put forward. he needs to adjust them and adjust them quickly because he will face not only the aclu but the constitution of the united states that is a check on that kind of abuse of power. >> thank you so much from the aclu. still to come. a group of first graders write letters to president-elect donald trump donald trump. those letters went viral. we will see what the head of that elementary school coming up. you will want to see what some of the 1st graders have written to the president-elect donald trump. >> and protests over the presidential election and where

4:30 pm
4:31 pm
to bring about change. in the days after election protests broke out including the bay area notably in san francisco and oakland. in some cases the demonstrations turned to destruction setting fires and damaging police cars. one of the protestors at least
4:32 pm
in oakland was sarah missner and she is here with us. first of all, the protests, what is it that you are hoping to accomplish by protesting after this election? which was won fair and square by donald trump. >> i first have to say -- i want to make a shout out to the folks that have taken to the streets. it is a real sign that we are not going to stand for this stand for the growing wave of facism in the united states. a big shout out to the people that were out this morning and resistance to the dakota pipeline. and especially to all of the youth that has been out in the last couple of days. i specifically was at the protest and the students both middle school and high school has put on from the oakland school for the arts and was filled with such hope. >> what do you think will happen over the next days and months. will this die down? a lot of people think it will die down? >> i think it is important to
4:33 pm
put in context where we are at. we are in the standing in the dakota pipeline and also to the largest national prison strike in u.s. history. of course black lives matter. >> haven't there been issues for decades. >> yes. all of the movements are connected in the resistance to the state and becoming gal vonized against donald trump. >> i want to talk about vandalism. people are disgusted. libby shaft said are you kidding me, you are vandalizing the city of oakland. we are disgusted by the election results if you look at the polling results, why are
4:34 pm
you hurting innocent shop owners and businesses in the city of oak land. what do you have to say to that? >> i live in oak land and when this issue comes up i am reminded of martin luther king. he says riot is the voice of the unheard. >> and wasn't martin luther king a proponent of peaceful demonstration. >> of course. we have to put it in the context of the great movement that is occurring in the thousands taking the streets and engaged in long term action to change the materiality of their communities. >> don't you lose people that you have potential sympathetic people that are out there and when they see vandalism they write you off. >> of course and i don't think that we should fixate on single acts of this. thousands of people around the lake this last weekend and they held hands and they said they would be in solidarity with the color and community. i think this is a one symbolic
4:35 pm
act and we have to remember that this will take lifetime movement to resist capitalism and to resist the types of policies. >> if donald trump comes out and says a lot of the stuff that i said on the campaign trail was something but now that i'm here i want to da verge towards the middle, will you give him a chance or is this all-out war? >> i think that we always have to seek out to seek the root causes of violence in our community and i think donald trump is of course going to concessions in order to divide the working class communities of america and instead i think we have to be careful and we can buy into this idea of the good protester and bad protester narrative and we can buy into this idea that will make small concessions to abandon the people in our community that are most marginalized and the people of color and immigrants and transpeople and instead we will have to do work. and we are all going to have to
4:36 pm

4:43 pm
feed and thought the teachers were feeding them anti trump stuff and this is what they came up with. give us a sense of the discussions preceding the letters and where did the kids get the ideas from. family, accommodation schools. >> our family is diverse and we have a diversity of families and that is much like schools across the u.s.. and we are not not a one class population. our entire class population doesn't feel one way so the teachers were not feeding anyone when it started and our teachers are professional enough to remain neutral and their role is not to create clones in any one direction or the other. and honor student voices and to
