why immigrant families would be afraid to fill out the census questionnaire. >> the state of california is suing the federal government to block plans to ask respondents in the 2020 census if they are citizens. other states like new york and massachusetts hope to go to court as well. >> this is something that has been part of the senses for decades and that the department of commerce wanted to add again . >> they believe it will scare away immigrants from answering leading to an undercount. but the trump administration says it will help all minorities and in order to enforce the voting rights act for the government needs a better account of who is old enough and eligible to vote. >> we have concluded that the voting rights act enforcement are asking the question that outweighs other issues. >> the census count is actually required by the constitution, but do you have to answer. >> they are only entitled to force you to answer one thing.

4:11 pm
on the american community survey was sufficient for the data need. i don't think it was proposed ever before to move it into the main now shorter census. >> i understand it was there in the 50s but for the last 60 years it has not been on the short form question has it? >> it was only a single form in the 50s. as soon as there was a long form or survey the question went on to the long form for the survey. >> i think the question is now appearing largely because the senses has become increasingly contentious and people are eager to see whenever they can but i think this is unfortunate for the professional work that the census bureau endeavors to do.
4:12 pm
>> unfortunate that the question is on the form or unfortunate that the lawsuits are moving forward?>> both. i think it's unfortunate to move this question on to the main census form at this very late date. the census form has already been carefully tested and the census bureau is embarking on a full end-to-end testing of the whole census so it's a very late to upset the basis of the census at this point. >> i guess the big concern for an undocumented immigrant is that if they feel they are answer this truthfully that immigration will hunt them down and try to kick them out of the country do you think that is the fear? >> the senses truly is confidential, these fears are unfounded. they are mistaken but the fears are out there and in the interest of some people they
4:13 pm
encourage them in the political arena but the census bureau does not share the data. we can expect that if the question goes on and is appears , it is going to frighten people. it may reduce response and it might encourage false sensors and we might get poor information about citizenship. >> we are all encouraged to fill out a form that we are not required under law to fill out the form and we're also not rick wired to answer every question on the form are we? >> we are required to answer that. >> all we are but these laws have not been aggressively enforced. >> if we skip a question do we get in trouble? what would happen? >> nothing would happen is item non-response and the census bureau has procedures for trying to minimize the damage.
4:14 pm
>> since you are saying that this information is not shared and people are to believe that then you encourage everyone to fill out every question. >> why is this a big deal? it has to do with federal funds being distributed not filling out the forms as money we're not getting. >> that is money we're not getting but even worse, the census is used all through industry and business cut down to your local school board, the local area data is the basis on which supplemented with the american community survey, school boards make format -- forecast of how many schools they will need and businesses need them of where to put their business. the whole economic fabric of our stay in the country really depends on an accurate census. >> very important information

4:20 pm
say you have to understand how the vehicles work they shoot lasers often radars off so just because it was night when the pedestrian was killed the in theory the vehicle should have seen her and stopped in time. >> do you know if the drivers are required to look up at all times? >> the idea is that they have their hands very close to the wheel to grab control and they are looking at the road for potential hazards were signs that the vehicle doesn't understand the scenario. the drivers we have talked to talked about the state of readiness they are in. it can be quite stressful, the trade-off is it is also hard for a human to pay attention all the time especially when the car is handling everything okay. >> how does the uber affect other car companies trying to test the technology with this accident? >> we seem companies like toyota
4:21 pm
announced they are suspending testing during this phase and then we see companies really double down and push forward on the advanced effort to put robot cars on the road. >> do you think they will be the first ones to get self driving cars on the road? >> if you listen to what they say and hear what everyone else is saying it seems like way mo is the best positioned to deploy commercial fleet. they aim for later this year they are ready have the hands- down there i was down in tempe and i saw the vehicles on the road. >> what you think about the deal with jag wire -- jaguar cars, this is a good deal? >> there are many layers, you

4:28 pm
>>i think you are seeing an increasingly move of bad judgment by russia. when we see these espionage tactics taking place right here at the heart of the un we cannot have that.>>reporter: most of the expulsions are coming from the u. s. and the european union. 60 diplomats in the u. s. were given a week to leave the country. the consulate in seattle must close by april 2. >>i think the government believes that these people were engaging in intelligence operations against our country and that it was appropriate that we force them to go home. >>reporter: russia says they are not involved in the attack but obviously the u. s., uk and several other countries do not believe that statement. calls continue for facebook ceo mark zuckerberg to testify before congress. we will speak with an expert on what answers lawmakers are seeking. new details about the

4:32 pm
own users following the disclosure that data from some 50 million people made it into the hands of a political consulting group linked to the trump campaign. that firm, cambridge analytica, also accused of violating campaign laws in several countries. a whistleblower testifying at a british parliament committee hearing describes the business model as modern-day colonialism. >>it is a company that goes around the world and undermines the institutions and countries that are struggling to develop that institution. there is a lot of reason why i find it problematic. >>reporter: this testimony comes as facebook finds itself in more legal trouble back home. the company is now the target of a consumer fraud lawsuit filed late monday in cook county illinois. >>we want to know how many people in illinois who are facebook users had their information exposed because of this breach. >>reporter: on capitol hill
4:33 pm
there are growing calls for facebook ceo, mark zuckerberg, to testify before congress. the house, energy and congress committee plans to hold a hearing and some lawmakers are discussing regulations on social media to make sure this does not happen again. >>social media search engines, that component of the ecosystem on the internet has not been transparent in how they protect privacy. >>reporter: british lawmakers are also inviting zuckerberg to testify before parliament but acknowledged tuesday it is unlikely to happen. mark zuckerberg has reportedly agreed to testify before congress after pressure from lawmakers as reported by cnn money. according to reports facebook sources say that he will testify quote, within a matter of weeks. his team is planning a strategy. for more on all of this we are joined by david levine. >>first off, tell us if you are
4:34 pm
surprised that he will go before congress or reportedly go before congress since he turned down the request to talk to british lawmakers. >>he cannot turn down a request from the united states congress because he could be subpoenaed. british parliament cannot subpoena him unless he were to show up in london or in the uk. to say yes that i am going to come, he said yes before they forced him to come. the real question is what will happen in the hearing, what kind of questions what they ask him. >>that is the question. what answers do they want to know? >>remember this is going to be theater, number one. bringing in mark zuckerberg means that the cameras will be there and members of the committees are going to have a chance to preen and pound the fifth and say how could this have happened what do you intend to do about this. really what will be interesting is to see how well mr. zuckerberg is prepped and coached and practiced for this
4:35 pm
hearing. i think we have all observed that he is maybe not the best in the world at spontaneous interviews. it is a little hard for him. he is used to scripted situations and it will be interesting to see how well facebook can prop him up and make him look good in a congressional hearing. it is a very tough form to be in. >>this is a hearing on data privacy. do we think that if regulations are put into place, is that a punishment for these companies or is it protection for these companies? >>it depends on what the regulations look like. on the one hand it might be punishing in the sense that facebook's business model has all been about scooping up the data of all of us, i am on facebook, i am even a shareholder, a little one, but i am there. scooping up your private data and selling it, when you hit
4:36 pm
like or say happy birthday, all of those things is valuable information. if the regulations mean it will be harder for space -- for facebook to collect that data and disseminated and allow apps to use that information it will be harder. on the other hand if it is regulations that they can live with and if the lawyers work with congress then it might be a situation where they will have regulation but it will force them to get more consent from all of us when we use facebook. but it will then protect them legally down the line. >>this case is the tip of the iceberg. what are the other legal exposures? >>number one, i am sure that there are a number of lawsuits from shareholders because the price of the stock has tanked since all of these revelations. there will be suits around that. there will be suits, state lawsuits, based on fraud claims that consumers and users of facebook were defrauded.
4:37 pm
the ftc is also a big player because facebook signed a consent decree with the ftc when they got into trouble regarding privacy seven years ago. it is not at all clear whether facebook was really adhering to what the decree required. it had a $40,000 per violation penalty and so the potential is that the damages could be enormous. the ftc is looking into this, we do not know where it will go, that is also a big thing that is facing facebook. getting mark zuckerberg ready for a congressional hearing is hard, getting ready for all of the lawsuits, that is enormous. >>we know that he will be at the hearing and we will see whether or not the ceo of twitter and google also go to the hearing as well. we appreciate your time. thank you for joining us. more than 100 people
4:38 pm
gathered outside and alamo elementary school to show support for the school and the students. the colorful display of rainbow flags and umbrellas was in response to a protest planned by members of the westborough baptist church. that group is based out of kansas and known for picketing with anti-lgbt signs at military funerals and other events. people in the trinity learned that they were coming to alamo. they organized a rainbow umbrella counter demonstration. some members of the group sang in celebration when the westborough picketers finally left. >>there is no anger or hate back, there is none of that aggressiveness, it is just a really celebratory, joyful, loving group of people. >>a member of the westborough

4:44 pm
campaign aimed at protecting wildlife especially seals. it is called leave seals be. they want people to know if you come across a steel or a seal pup on the beach, do not get too close. >>the most important thing is if you're out on the beach walking and you see an animal, give it distance. they are wild animals and it is important to leave them alone. if you think the animal is sick or distressed or skinny, give us a call rather than trying to intervene. we have professional training and a lot of ways that we can work safely with animals. >>the marine mammal center says they have rescued 70 seal pups since the beginning of march. that is largely due to the rainy weather which is causing conditions off shore causing pups being separated from their mothers. things are looking hotter.
