12:01 pm
me. you can see several hundred people with their signs in front of the i.c.e. offices. now, just before noon the crowd started marching this direction from jackson and battery with a banner that said no deportation, chanting their message. you can see that they have blocked off part of the street here. this is washington and samsung. the other intersection is blocked, as well. this is the banner people were carrying. they started painting a sign on to the pavement here. it says bay area united. this demonstration, this protest in response to an immigration operation conducted by i.c.e. in northern california over the past several days. representatives for immigrations and customs enforcement in san francisco say about half of the 150 people who were detained in the latest northern california operation either had prior criminal convictions or had been flagged for deportation. the other half did not. they were detained for being in the country without
12:02 pm
documentation, which as a first offense is a civil violation. i.c.e.'s acting director thomas homan warned in the past that i.c.e. agents not able to detain people would lead to collateral requests. >> these collateral arrests we feel are based on racial profiling and it's extremely disturbing, the things that people are being targeted, questioned, or detained for, based on the color of their skin or ethnic backgrounds. >> reporter: i.c.e.'s director blamed mayor libby schaaf for helping 800 people elude because of the warning she issued about an impending i.c.e. operation. >> what she did is no better than a gang lookout yelling police when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood, except she did it to the entire community. >> reporter: mayor schaff defended her actions. >> what i did was my job as the mayor of oakland and reflective
12:03 pm
of the values of the people that i represent. >> reporter: the group scattered at this protest today say they are concerned i.c.e. is trying to retaliate against the bay area in california and they are worried about the impact of those collateral arrests on families and children. >> it's a tremendous impact on that young person, that family, and it reverberates throughout the community. people are in tremendous amounts of fear. >> reporter: and back out here live, you are looking at one of the entrances to the i.c.e. office building on washington. the other is on jackson. on either side there are people who have formed a human chain to block the entrances. we have seen a couple of the immigration and customs enforcement vehicles have to be redirected on to another street and turn around. [ inaudible ] >> it appears we lost ally's live signal. you see a large group gathering in san francisco marching and chanting on one side, sitting
12:04 pm
in silence, arms linked on the other as this unfolds in san francisco. we will keep track of the protests, any traffic problems that may pop up. let's switch to our other big story today. the weather and what could be the biggest storm of the season heading our way? >> that's right, gasia. we have a potent cold front tomorrow. a lot of instability, that could keep the showers, the thunderstorms and possibly low snow levels in the forecast friday into the weekend. some of the highlights, some of the expectations, rainfall easily over 1 inch across most areas. in fact, a few spots topping 2 inches. winds gusting to 40 to 50 miles per hour. a wind advisory kicks up for the bay area for your thursday and the sierra will pick up significant snowfall. i've not used the word blizzard warning at all this year, but they have a blizzard warning that goes into effect for the lake tahoe area heading into thursday and friday morning.
12:05 pm
this is the satellite. lots of clouds already working their way into the bay area. a little bit of green up to the north. throughout the afternoon hours there is a chance of a few scattered showers developing especially after 3:00, after 4:00. the rainfall will pick up tonight. those clouds definitely moving in and starting to darken. so mostly cloudy skies across a good portion of the bay area for your early wednesday afternoon. look what happens. this is 4:00. we are holding on to the cloud cover. not much in the way of significant rainfall. that begins to trend upward later in the evening. this is 10:00 tonight. the rachel will be picking up. for the thursday morning commute we are expecting moderate to heavy rain first thing tomorrow morning. that is just the first of several waves that will move into the bay area over the next few days. we will talk about the unsettled weather pattern, the significant rainfall, and the sierra snowfall coming up in a few minutes. an emotional day in south florida as students from stoneman douglas high school return to class. more than 3,000 students returned to school for half day
12:06 pm
today with their schedule starting with the classes that were disrupted when the shooting happened two wednesdays ago, valentine's day. about 150 counselors, extra substitute teachers and therapy dogs were on hand to help students. the broward school superintendent says many of the students hugged and shared their stories. >> we know things will never, ever be the same, but we're going to try to make sure that we can figure out how to move forward. >> the superintendent also said 95% of the student body returned today. police presence was very high. hundreds of officers, both on and off duty, were around the campus. the mass shooting where 17 people were killed has intensified the debate over gun control across the country. >> the safest school in america right now. so as long as it's safe that way, i guess i'm okay. i think it will stay that way for the rest of this year with the significant presence and the efforts to strengthen and fortify it.
12:07 pm
it's still a scene of where my daughter, unfortunately, was murdered. yeah, there is something about that. it's hard to connect those dots and feel okay. >> the freshman building where the shooting happened remains cordoned off. the school hopes to have it torn down. at the white house president trump meeting with bipartisan members of congress, including just to his right outside of this picture california senator dianne feinstein in the discussion of guns and school safety. let's take a moment to listen in to the president. >> it's going to cost hundreds of millions of dollars all over the country. the door closes and now we can't get in. have to send a tractor through the walls. we have to be careful of that. and we have to create a culture that cherishes life and human dignity. so we can sit around, we are going to come up with some ideas. hopefully, we can put those ideas in a very bipartisan
12:08 pm
bill. it would be so beautiful to have one bill that everybody could support as opposed to 15 bills. everybody's got their own bill. but if we could have one terrific bill that everybody started by the people around this table, special people. these are the people that seem to be most interested, very interested in this problem, and it's a big problem. so with that i think i'd like to start -- maybe i'll ask john. you can start off and we will go back and forth. we will leave the media for a little while and they can hear us. but it's something that can be done. there is no reason for this. but again i really believe that those people, it's idealistic, it's wonderful, it's a beautiful thing. but if you think that somebody's going to be able to walk into a school if they feel they are not going to have bullets coming at them from the other direction, you are never going to solve the problem. i feel that. i feel that. i'm certainly open to suggestions. so, john, why don't you start?
12:09 pm
you've put in your fix nicks. >> thank you, mr. president, for getting us together and expressing your sincere concerns. >> the president starting a meeting with bipartisan members of congress, including just to the right off of this picture sitting next to him california senator dianne feinstein. you don't rarely see these two together at a table exchanging ideas, but here that is happening. of course, if you have been following the news in recent days, the president floated scenarios including arming teachers, raising the minimum age for purchasing a firearm, addressing mental health issues and improving the background check system. all of this talk might lead to action, hope many, in the wake of that terrible high school shooting in florida that left 17 people dead. we will bring you the larger points from the meeting. here at home in sebastopol increased security after a threatening message was written in a high school bathroom stall

12:11 pm
preventing future mass shootings. we are not seeing any video released by san francisco police during a community meeting to discuss an officer- involved shooting that happened earlier this month.
