deal with violence. anything to deal with sex offense. >> meaning anyone charged with a felony will stay in jail. it's yet another chapter since san francisco became a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants. in november of 2009, laws were loosened for undocumented workers who drove without a license. if they are stopped, they are allowed time to find someone to drive their car and avoid getting it towed. since then the number of tows has dropped dramatically. >> the policy is illegal. >> howard is the former chair of the san francisco republican party. he says he is fine with legal immigration but believes this time the sheriff has gone too far. >> you have no right to be in the country to begin with, so they don't have the right -- the same rights as i do or you do to get out of jail free
card. >> reporter: this move by the sheriff is a direct swipe at the federal secure communities immigration act. we aren't alone. there is a statewide effort, a bill is going through the california legislature that is authored by tom amiano and just as wednesday, illinois opted out, this seems to be a trend. >> all right grace lee in san francisco with the latest. thank you grace. the elite navy seals team got a personal thank you from the president today. visiting troops in kentucky and he told them job well done. and he told 60 minutes their safety was his top priority during that raid. >> you had to decide, this was your decision whether to proceed or not and how to proceed. what was the most difficult part of that decision?
>> if i send them in, can i get them out? and a lot of the discussion we had during the course of planning was how do we make sure there's backup? how do we make sure there is redundancy built into the plan? that's point number one. >> you can see steve's entire interview with the president this sunday at 7:00 here on cbs 5. president obama also thanked other troops just back from afghanistan for their service. >> hello fort campbell. >> he told the troops that because of the incredible skill and courage of countless military professionals, the terrorist leader who struck america on september 11 will never threaten america again. everyone knew it was coming, but today al-qaeda vowed revenge on the united states for bin laden's death. on an islamic website, the
terror network called on muslim people in pakistan to quote, rise up and revolt. though it doesn't make any specific threat. we already knew that the seals came home with a treasure- trove of intelligence taken from bin laden's compound and tonight we are learning just how much. 2.7 -- that's a lot. bob ore breaks it down. >> since 9/11, al-qaeda's number two has been just as illusive as osama bin laden. but now an intelligence source has documents recovered in the raid on bin laden's compound have revealed positive intelligence that is helping the u.s. narrow down potential locations. the information is creating new leads and they are likely on the run. this is not as easy as going to an address, the source said.
the unprecedented hall of evidence confirms that bin laden to the very end was right at the center of the al-qaeda network and plan. scrolled notes spell out a spectrum of plots. sources say the terror leader dreamed of another 9/11, targeting major cities and infrastructure targets on key american holidays. there's no evidence that any of this produced a concrete plot. but analysts are digging into a massive volume of captured intelligence. sources say the navy seals grabbed 2.7terabytes of data. 800 hours of video, or 600 million pages of computer text. >> cia is working as fast as possible to find intelligence to identify solid targets and the u.s. is poised to strike again. bob ore cbs news washington. >> police say a career burglar
turned a foreclosed and vacant home into a storage place for stolen goods. the stash was at a home in oakland's monteclaire neighborhood. officers hauled away two truckloads and there's a lot of stuff left behind. a realtor knew the house was for sale and called police after finding lee craigo there. he and his pregnant wife and child were renting the place. >> we thought a family was moving in and we were happy. >> police say that they found goods from at least ten different burglaries. he is arguably one of the most famous and richest 20 somethings in the world. mark zuckerberg, founder of facebook and tonight our first look at the relatively modest house that he just bought and what the purchase could mean
for property values in that neighborhood. >> the titans of industry may portray images, but billionaires living beyond bling. like this $70 million home built by oracles larry ellison or this seven bedroom 24 bathroom bill gates hide away so massive it has its own online virtual tour. when it was leaked that fellow billionaire mark zuckerberg bought a home, the world expected a mansion. instead, he bought this refurbished five bedroom, five path in palo alto for $7 million. and tabloids started wagging. >> mark zuckerberg leaving his new house. >> complete with polls, did zuckerberg get ripped off? absolutely no. >> there is a trend going on right now. what we are seeing in our area, we have basically newly minted high level executives. >> the palo alto real estate
agent says zuckerberg's purchase is a sign silicon valley is hiring again. >> google is continuing. >> and who are they hiring? >> this is a younger crowd and they like to be in the mix. >> late 20 somethings who would rather walk to local bars and host backyard barbecues by the pool and that's exactly what zuckerberg got. they are also paying cash anywhere from $2 to $12 million. that's driving up palo alto real estate values. >> as long as prop 13 stays in effect, we are okay. >> zuckerberg's new neighbors worry about the spike in prices, but listen at how they plan to capitalize off the newest celebrity on the block. > we'll start having more garage sales because we will get this traffic coming by. >> in palo alto, robert lyles cbs 5. it is a tail of two economies in one country. the u.s. added nearly a quarter
million jobs last month. why at the same time the unemployment rate increased. this dog helped save the little girl and got her name canine of the year. but now why prejudice against this hero dog is stopping one family from getting their lives back together. >> she's not going nowhere. it's the world's first smart pill bottle. how it helps anyone remember to take their daily meds. why it can save billions in healthcare costs. coming up next. [ banker ] mike and brenda found a house that they really wanted.
it was in my sister's neighborhood. i told you it was perfect for you guys. literally across the street from her sister. [ banker ] but someone else bought it before they could get their offer together. we really missed a great opportunity -- dodged a bullet there. [ banker ] so we talked to them about the wells fargo priority buyer preapproval. it lets people know that you are a serious buyer because you've been credit-approved. we got everything in order so that we can move on the next place we found. which was clear on the other side of town. [ male announcer ] wells fargo. with you when you're ready to move. thousand jobs in april. and yet unemployment rose from 8 - point - 8, to 9 percent.
the u.s. economy gained 244,000 jobs in april and yet unemployment rose from 8.8 to 9%. now here's how that's possible. unemployment numbers come from two surveys. the payroll survey asks businesses and governments to report how many people they employ. the household survey asks people if they are unemployed and if they are looking for work. people who are not looking for work are not considered unemployed. do you sometimes forget to take your medicine? do you worry weather an elderly parent took their heart medication and so on. the new technology helping patients remember to take their prescription drugs. >> takes medication for high blood pressure, but with no symptoms it can be tough to remember that daily dose. >> sometimes i say, did i really take it this morning? >> now don knows for sure

osama bin laden's compound. they are the elite of the elite and the fittest of the fit in the u.s. military. david martin tells us very few who try to become a navy seal actually make it. >> navy seals are known as super fit, super tough with a little rambo thrown in. the seals who killed bin laden operate on a whole different level, literally. they are what is known inside the pentagon as a tier 1 course, reserved for only the highest priority targets like bin laden or a loose nuclear weapon. >> they are the force to be called away first. >> a best seeling author was the first commander of what came to become seal team six. a counterterrorist force founded in the wake of the 1980 failure to rescue americans held hostage in tehran. >> it's been 30 years they have been practicing and doing counterterrorism missions. you really have a well oiled machine when you send them out.

and failure. seal team six goes into every one of them the same. >> stone professionalism. controlling your emotions. the difference from being afraid and being a warrior is controlling that fear and using it as a tool and accomplishing the mission. >> the 40 minutes those seals spent on the ground at bin laden's compound were 30 years in the making. david martin cbs news the pentagon. well she's a hero with credentials, but she can't get a place to live. >> i'm not willing to give her up. they won't let me rent with her, then i'm not moving, period. >> why the dog named canine of the year is being forced to live away from the family she risked her life to save.
