in california are putting law enforcements in danger just to score political points and specifically called out oakland mayor libby schaaf, who warned the community that an i.c.e. raid was coming. >> here's my message to mayor schaaf, how scare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda. >> reporter: he made his comment at the california association of californ association. >> it's not cpoa's role to endorse what the attorney general says, i think the attorney general has his viewpoint and he represents the federal government. >> reporter: plenty of strong opinions could be heard outside the hotel, protesters were outraged that the state is being sued and the attorney general came here to announce it. >> i think it's just a bully
tactic. we're definitely not surprised, but we're not going to, as the speaker stated, we're not going to stand here and just let it happen. >> reporter: organizers were pleased with today's turnout, since they just found out yesterday that the attorney general was coming. the protests were peaceful. the reaction to the attorney general's comments today was shift. >> leann, what did the mayor have to say about sessions specifically calling her out? >> reporter: let me just say this, that it was apparent to reporters today, larry, that mayor schaaf is not comfortable being in this position. during today's press conference, she said, quote, it was not my intention to get caught up in a national debate. now having said that, the mayor said she was defiant. he said oakland's agenda is a
thriving community, trump's agenda is bigotry and vindictiveness. now schaaf once again insisted that less than half of the people detained by i.c.e. during the most recent raid did not have criminal charges. jeff sessi and this is how she responded to the attorney general's how dare you remarks. >> how dare you vilify members of our community, by trying to frighten the american public into thinking that all undocumented residents are dangerous criminals. >> reporter: mayor schaaf also reveals that the oakland city attorney's office which of course represents her is now working with linda hague, the attorney for northern california
and i am being told by city hall that hague has offered her services to the city of oakland pro buono. >> so the question stands is who do you think will win the lawsuit, we did post that on abc7news.com/vote. >> it's 50/50 right now. keep in mind, this will likely be decided and appealed and decided and appealed before we get all the way ultimately to the supreme court. keep voting and we'll continue to check out the evening. governor brown called on attorney general sessions to apologize to california after today's speech in sacramento. >> this is completely unprecedented for the chief law enforcement of the united states to come out here and engage in a political stunt, make wild accusations, many of which are based on outright lies, that's unusual. >> governor brown also told
reporters shortly after the speech that sessions acted more like fox news than a law enforcement officer. you can hear more of the speeches by governor brown and attorney general jeff sessions, we have them for you on abc7news.com as well as the abc7 news app. in the meantime, president trump will make his first visit to california since being sworn into office. he'll travel to san diego next tuesday to inspect border wall prototypes. he's also expected to attend a fund-raiser in loons angeles. president donald trump is the first president to skip a visit to california during his first year in office. >> why has it taken him so long? he's been busy, creating jobs, defeating isis, i would be happy to name off some other successes, but that's probably enough. let's turn to the weather now, boy, does it look beautiful
behind us. but more rain is actually coming. >> taking a live look outside to our east bay hills, talk about a gorgeous scene outside, our meteorologist drew trktuma. >> live doppler 7, the satellite showing the showers well offshore at this hour. you kind of see the motion of the moisture, moving kind of in a north/northeast fashion. 66 in san francisco, 70 in freemont and concord, 65 that number in santa rosa. some light showers, the best chance is really along the north bay and along the coast. minimal if nothing will make its way into the south bay. later on this evening by 8:00,
probably a few light sprinkles around santa rosa. around 10:00, those showers trying to approach the city of san francisco. but as this front moves through in the early morning hours, it's really just going to fall apart. but we are tracking more chances for rain and when those chances for rain to fall over the weekend. now to a dramatic officer involved shooting in san francisco. >> gunshots rang out in the mission district late last night as police shot and killed an armed robbery suspect who was in the trunk of a car. it all started after two victims flagged down officers and they located the suspect vehicle at 21st and capp streets. >> capp street between 21st and 22nd street covered with dozens of evidence markers after an officer involved fatal shooting in the mission district captured on cell phone video.
monday night just after 10:30 p.m., san francisco police say two armed robbery victims flagged down officers in a marked car and provided a suspect vehicle description, a black honda civic. >> they asked him to put his hands up. >> reporter: after one shot fired, officers telling the system to show his other hand, that they were going to shoot at him again, then this. [ gunshots ] >> shots fired. shots fired. >> reporter: the suspect died at the scene. police say a mannhand gun was located in the trunk of the vehicle. the investigation continued well into wednesday afternoon, the black honda with it's back windows shot out and paper plates was towed. a woman identifying herself as the victim's cousin --
>> we're ready for some accountability, something needs to be done to stop the killings. >> reporter: san francisco police have not confirmed how many shots were fired, but bullets hit cars, and homes. police asked to search through cook's apartment, his apartment windows were shot out. >> there was a bullet fragment in my apartment. which is very spooky, wondering what would have happened if i was there. . >> reporter: one neighbor who did not wish to be identified said he believed the use of force was justified. >> he was not complying with what the police were telling him. >> reporter: police say a third suspect in the car was also detained. in san francisco, melanie woodrow, abc7 news. >> this is the first officer involved shooting of the year for the san francisco police. last year there were 6. a trial began today for a san francisco police officer known as the hot cop of the castro. he's accused of running away after hitting two men with his car in the city. now abc7 news was inside the
hall of justice when chris coors walked into court. investigators say coors hit the two men with his personal vehicle and abandoned the car on broadway in november of 2015. coors was offduty at the time. before that, coors generated a social media following while walking the beat in the castro. caltrans says it's investigating how a small fire started yesterday in some netting under the western span of the bay bridge. sky 7 captured some incredible video of a fire boat shooting water into the air trying to douse the flames. you see the water hitting vehicles before the westbound lanes were shut down. wild weather moving through the northeast and it's having a big impact on travelers right here in the bay area. we'll have the details. plus, could soon be a lot more water front water, the warning about rising sea levels and the bay area land that could
make things worse. and "7 on your side's" michael finney is taking your questions as we speak on facebook, post those questions with the #askfinney. >> let's get a live look at the afternoon commute. starting with the sky way in downtown san francisco, trying to get to the lower deck of the east bay. folks coming off the bridge on to 101 south. that's actually movin
the ross spring dress event. it's here. where you'll find the perfect dress at the perfect price. whether you want to stand out from the crowd or dance the night away. from a weekend getaway to that special celebration. if you want to save big on dresses for every occasion, you've gotta get to the ross spring dress event, on now. ♪ you're gotta go to ross. immigration law is the promise of the federal government, it's in the
constitution. your refusal to apprehend and deport those, especially the criminal element effectively rejects all immigration law. it's a rejection of law. >> that was attorney general jeff sessions this morning in sacramento. there was so much rhetoric in the immigration sanctuary debate. we're going to try to cut through all of that right now. our guest is usf law professor bill hain, as well as a member of the police commission, so well qualified on both sides of this issue. let's start with the law here, this sounds like a case that's going to go all the way to the supreme court, but how long might that take? >> reporter: well the process start to finish in filing a lawsuit and going through trial and then going to the court of appeals and then ending up in the supreme court if that, would probably take at least three to four years. >> with appeals all along the way, correct?
>> absolutely. this is not something that's going to be resolved overnight. >> all right, bill, police in sanctuary cities say they need these laws protecting undocumented immigrants because crime would go up and arrests would go down in those communities if people are fearful, they may get deported for reporting a crime or testifying. based on your experience with the san francisco police commission, do you feel that's a valid case? >> absolutely. san francisco police chief and police chiefs across the country understand that when immigrants are in fear, they don't report being victims of crime or being witnesses of crime. and we saw that actually a year ago when the trump administration first announced that it was going to start conducting sweeps and raids, reporting of crimes actually went down in certain communities and certain zip codes and so pit's a legitimate concern on te part of the police. >> do you see a compromise
anywhere here where, yes, we detain and deport undocumented immigrants who commit crimes, but we're still able to protect those people who are law abiding citizens with jobs, who are paying their taxes. in some cases, we have seen people who have served in our military, fought for our country and still get deported. how do we get a compromise? >> i think the governor really did try to work out a compromise. he actually was not happy with the original version of what's called s.b. 54, which is what mr. sessions is going to challenge the so-called state sanctuary ordinance. the first version of that did not have carveouts that satisfied the governor. those carveouts somebody's been convicted of very serious violent crimes, those folks actually will be turned over to i.c.e. so that was a very difficult debate that went on, a similar
kind of debate went on in san francisco when mayor ed lee was alive and two or the sanctuary ordinance was modified. this is not about letting somebody out on the street with a proven track record of being a violent criminal, that's not what's going to happen under these laws. >> short answer because we're up against the clock here, but we're asking our viewers who do you think is going to win this case. you have more expertise than the rest of us. how do you it plays out ultimately? >> ultimately the sanctuary ordinances will be upheld. this is not about regulating immigrants, it's about public safety. >> professor, thanks very much for your time. >> some great perspective there especially from him and his point of view and when we take a look at how everyone is voting at abc7news.com, you can see the
percentage is staying the same here, just about half of who will win this lawsuit, people saying the federal government, 48%, and people who say the state will win, 52%. >> it's very complicated. >> so much debate. >> but we're going to continue to take your votes and monitor them and show them all the way through our newscast tonight at 6:00 p.m. shifting gears now, it looks like adult film star stormy daniels says she wants to set the record straight about the relationship she had with president trump in 2006. the suit claims the agreement is not binding because mr. trump never actually signed it. daniels attorney says there is no question the president knew about this agreement. >> the idea that an attorney would go off on his own, without his client's knowledge and engage in this type of
negotiation and enter into this type of agreement quite honestly i think is ludicrous. >> michael cohen paid stormy daniels $130,000. today the white house denied the claim against the president and claimed the case had already been won in ash strags. nancy pelosi donated some items to the smithsonian national museum of history today. she handed over her burgundy dress she wore when she received her gavel as speaker of the house. pelosi says she was humbled that her colleagues had the courage to elect her as speaker. >> we need the voices of all women, we need their courage and their strength, because when women succeed, america succeeds.
>> pelosi's dress joins sally ride's dress suit. and do you see what's a little bit different here? mcdonald's, a mcdonald's franchise near los angeles has flipped up the golden arches upside down to make it a w. there are about 100 other restaurants will turn their signs upside down to mark they are owned by women. drew, we do have some rain coming? >> and that was the same storm that got us feet of snow in the sierra. now it's on the east coast, burying them in snow. right now it's warm, a little bit of rain, but it's after dark for most. live doppler 7 will show you that rain is still off the coast. live doppler 7 showing you that

showers and the best chance of this moisture is really going to be in the north bay and around the coast. minimal if anything would fall in the south bay, if this storm system just fall it apart as it crosses the region. 8:00 later on tonight, showers very light in nature, just beginning to fall around santa rosa. as we advance the clock towards 11: 11:00. you notice the showers still light in the north bay and beginning to approach the coast and parts of san francisco. and then overnight, as that front moves through, it just really falls apart. you see the moisture just evaporate, the cloud cover stays in place, and we will have a dry commute tomorrow morning. in terms of total rain with this storm system, very light in nature. future track of rainfall shows the highest amount will be in the north bay, generally less than a quarter-inch. but you look inland, likely ending up with nothing out of this system. so your 12-hour planner, a lot of cloud cover early on, you're dry in the morning and more sunshine by the afternoon, and
once again, temperatures will be on the mild side with most spots in the 60s. 68 in concord, going for a high of 70 in san jose, 64 the high in santa rosa. the accuweather 7-day forecast, we'll show you morning clouds will sweep out to sunshine tomorrow afternoon. friday will be mainly dry, there is a chance at night there could be a shower in the south bay. but the best chance for everybody will come on saturday night, a system that's a 1 on the storm impact scale. those mild temperatures hang around until early next week and then another chance of rain. the man accused of francis mcdermocdermott's oscar statue.
