restaurant in front. some were underneath the communion table at a church. they were able to get out. everybody wishes they had more morning. >> haley, tell me about the effort to get to the people that are trapped. the sun is getting ready to set there. that means looking for injured extremely dangerous, you have gas lines and electrical lines that you can't sigh. what is going on? >> absolutely. they have power lines and i'm looking at two on the trucks. they are going to assess the power lines ahead of me. it's a dangerous situation when the sun sets. everyone is trying to be as careful as possible, trying to get the people out. >> haley with our affiliate in mississippi. thank you so much. let's bring in now domenica davis in the weather center. i understand this storm system is not done yet?
>> no. we have several more hours. you can see the tornado watch boxes fill up. the threat has moved into the ohio valley, tennessee, kentucky up to illinois and missouri, that is what we're looking at. new lines of storms out to the east and you have associated tornado warnings with them. there are three areas of concern right now. the three lines, one you can see one from missouri into illinois and down to the south in the alabama area we are looking at some warnings that are going to be up for at least the next half-hour. here is what we have now. the yellow or thunderstorms, you can't rule out the severe thunderstorms because the hail has been so big with this system. there have been reports of golf ball-sized hail but egg-on sized hail. that is going to cause serious damage. the storms have a history of not only causing a lot of damage but big rain makers. so flooding is also a concern.
we'll continue to monitor the situation and check in at the bottom of the hour. one positive, from a couple of hours, the watch boxes have gotten a little smaller. >> yes. thank you so much. arizona's controversial immigration law one day old. >> it took billions and bailouts from taxpayers at the worst of the at the height of the worst recession in decades. new e-mails from goldman sachs boasting making about tons of money as the nation's housing market tanked. tonight, more on those damaging e-mails and why goldman says it did nothing wrong. plus... outrage and vows to challenge the arizona's new law targeting immigration. >> we can't stand idly by add

proof of citizenship on the spot from anyone they suspect is undocumented. opponents said it could lead to racial profiling but arizona, home to 460,000 illegal immigrants, those that support it say it's necessary because the federal government has failed to secure the border. casey siegle has the story from phoenix. >> reporter: the fight could just be the beginning. this the toughest immigration reform law on the books in u.s. history. though it's hard telling how long it could last considering the court battles are already brewing. let's go to the video of arizona governor jan brewer signing bill 1070 yesterday. things got pretty heated between several hundred protestors outside the state house. opponents are concerned that it could lead to widespread racial profiling since it allows the
police to question the person's immigration status if they have reasonable or probable cause that they are in arizona illegally. >> it kind of opens the door for racial profiling. this isn't an issue that just affects the immigrant population but anyone -- like, how do you define what reasonable suspicion is. >> reporter: the governor says to prevent racial profiling, she is ordering the arizona police training agency to develop new guidelines for teaching officers how to properly enforce this law. brewer also believes she was forced to do something drastic because she doesn't feel the feds have done enough in terms of securing the southern border in her state where a wealth of drugs and humans are smuggled into the united states everyday. >> we cannot sacrifice our safety to the murderous greed of drug cartels. we can't stand by at kidnappings
and violence compromise our quality of life. >> reporter: the mexican senate is outraged over this, voting unanimously for brewer to veto the law. to be continued out here in arizona. interesting because that is what people have talked about, what will it do to our relationship with mexico. >> you heard casey talking about the white house wging. president obama calling the new law misguided ander irresponsible and they are taking a close look at the law to see if it violates civil rights. but also saying they must do more to address the situation at the national level. traveling with the president, wendall, this new crackdown can survive some momentum in congress. >> reporter: that momentum could
come at a price. republicans believe that the harry reid is pushing immigration reform to the top of the agenda to win hispanic votes for himself and other democrats this november. south carolina senator lindsay graham says he will grop his bill if it's moved ahead of it. he agrees that states are acting because the federal government failed to do so. >> our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsible built by others. that includes for example the recent efforts in arizona that threatens on undermine freedoms that we cherish as americans, and also the trust between police and communities that is crucial to keeping up that faith. >> they are afraid they will be reluctant to report crimes as a
witness. i know that the president is set to be at a memorial service at some time so for the people that died in virginia from the mine explosion. what are we learning about that? >> he is going to west virginia to celebrate the 29 lives that were lost. here he'll meet privately with family members and deliver the eulogy. he will not dwell on the poor state of mine safety in the country. he believes the disaster was a failure of management. he said also it was a failure, quote, of oversight and laws written with loopholes they allowed unsafe conditions to continue. president ordered inspectors to check out other mines with poor safety records and review how the health and safety administration operates. thank you so much. >> a whole lot of attention on
e-mails by a senate committee investigating the financial meltdown. top executives at goldman sacks claim their firnlt made money from the housing collapse. that they profit, at least for a time, from betting those packaged bundles would lose value. the ceo saying in one e-mail dated from november, 2007. of course we lost money, but then we made more than we lost because of shorts. shorts just to ex explaining, are a bet that a security will lose value. goldman is responding to the e-mails saying the senate panel cherry picked the e-mails from 20 million pages of documents that giold man provided. on tuesday other goldman executives are scheduled to testify at the senate on the heels of charging goldman with defrauding investigators. charges that goldman denies.
with us is gary and he is a fox news business contributer. hello, gary, good to see you. first of all, why do the e-mails so important. do they point to a crime? >> potentially. one 9 big things on wall street you never want to bet against your client. goldman was betting on mortgages doing well and now shorting the same products. it's a totaled ethical violation and could rise to some criminal activity that is for the frogs decide. >> while americans were losing their houses, goldman sachs made money and that makes them a prime target for the current administration? >> look, this is political and also public relations now. they are in a public relations war for their supposed good name. big issue is you have people losing tons of money.
destroyed their accounts, one thing the housing market and mortgage market. here is goldman sachs selling products they gave to their hedge fund that knew they would go down, shorted those products and i have to kel you what goldman says, that is not going play well on wall street. i don't think it's going to play well on capitol hill on tuesday. >> we'll see as they begin to testify. gary, thank you very much. four days after a massive explosion on an oil rig off the coast of louisiana, giving up their search for survivors. and coastguard called up the cleanup effort even though thousands of barrels are leaking into the gulf of mexico. what we are learning on this and a killer caught on tape. a killer caught on tape, but police say he did and why they say the video could help bring him to justice. that is just ahead.
