6:07 am
it was rejected in a 54-45 vote so that means they were six votes short. eight republicans and eight democrats, independents, worked on the proposal that would have protected "dreamers" from deportation. i can say is the only deal i think that can make it is strong border and big daca. the bipartisan proposal is a template for the way forward. you might get change it some. but there's not going to be a round one that includes eliminating chain migration. there's not going to be a round one that doesn't have $25 l system >> you all i can say is that the only deal [ indiscernible ] strong border and daca and bipartisan proposal is a template for the way forward. you might change it some. but there's not going to be a round one that includes eliminating chain migration. there's not going to be a round one that doesn't have the $25 billion wall system appropriations. so that i know. and i don't know where we go from here. >> the bill would have also provided $25 billion to enhance border security but restricted family-based immigration and ended the visa lottery. the senate also rejected president trump's measure in a 60-39 vote.
6:08 am

6:33 am
preincident indicators and characteristics of active shooters. they will learn how active shooters typically choose their targets. they will also learn how active shooters typically choose their targets and what to do in the moments after the shooting begins. while teachers are forced to continue to go through these trainings every year, there's renewed calls for gun control here in california. a bill from assembly man phil ting would expand a current law which would allow loved ones to report someone and prevent them from getting a gun. it would expand that law to allow "anybody" to report someone they fear could be violent and including anybody, not just a loved one. it's the type of bill phil ting said may have stopped the parkland shooter from buying a gun. >> criminals by their definition don't obey laws. when you pass laws that simply restrict the right of law- abiding citizens, that does absolutely "nothing." >> you can't excuse violence or gun violence especially a mass shooting at a school. >> reporter: as of january 2017, california requires residents to register assault weapons including ar-15s but that prompted manufacturers to release a work-around before the bill passed including a ar- 15 model with slight modifications which makes that model legal.
6:34 am
it's going to be an uphill battle in california and anywhere to make changes to gun laws. meanwhile, teachers and administrators here at oakland unified school district will have to go through that training. it begins here at 9 a.m. in oakland. reporting live in oakland, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. and "cbs this morning" will have continuing live coverage from florida starting at 7 a.m. right after our broadcast. time now 6:34. gianna will tell us about the traffic problems but we can gaze at the beautiful sky there because it is gorgeous. not many problems weather-
6:35 am
wise. it's going to be a good-looking day. we don't have yesterday's wind. clear skies. also though contributing to the cool factor outside so it's brisk temperatures in the 30s and 40s this morning. here's the view that we love so much. sunrise in the next few minutes. high pressure is here and back. so it retreated and now it's making its comeback and that's why temperatures will feel good this afternoon and that's why we have clear conditions today. mostly sunny skies for your saturday as well and tomorrow temperatures will be warmer than today. but right now it is cool. 30s and 40s in the area. north bay valleys are at the freezing mark. livermore is below freezing. it's chilly. calm winds.
6:36 am
20s and 30s monday morning and tuesday morning. the winds and the cool weather will begin on sunday with winds up to 40 miles an hour as this system comes from canada. it's going to cause big changes for us. i'll track it for you coming up. we start off with a traffic alert. 101 in burlingame an overturned vehicle blocking two lanes. traffic is crawling northbound 101 right around poplar where this live shot is. woodside to sfo 41 minutes. again this is north 101 at anza boulevard. two lanes blocked for a little while longer so definitely give yourself some extra time. use 280 as an alternate or caltrain. that's your best bet to avoid delays as you work your way along 101. elsewhere, if you are headed along west 80 at powell street traffic is doing okay here, extra volume but delays aren't too bad along the eastshore freeway. metering lights are on at the bay bridge with a 19-minute drive time from the macarthur
6:37 am
maze over to the central freeway into san francisco. and taking a look at your mass transit, no delays for bart, muni, amtrak though is behind 11 minutes for train 521. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is in turkey this morning where he met with country leaders and held a joint news conference. he says that american and turkish aims in syria are the same. he added both countries will work together to defeat isis and other terrorist groups in syria. it is back to the drawing board for the u.s. senate this morning. >> they failed four bills last night on immigration reform which would have protected "dreamers" from being deported and jackie ward reports. >> reporter: a lot happened. so the senate is starting at ground zero this morning just as they thought they were going to make some progress on immigration reform. four measures were voted on yesterday and all failed. the one that came closest to passing was a bipartisan proposal. it would have prevented "dreamers" from being deported while also funding a border wall gradually. iowa republican senator chuck grassley presented a separate
6:38 am
measure based on president trump's priorities but 14 republicans and 46 democrats voted against it. 60-39. the least number of votes any of the four measures received. >> we ought to do something for daca kids. they were brought here through no fault of their own, brought here by their parents. so if you had years and years of people pleading with doing something of justification, humanitarian reasons and a compassionate way for the daca kids, it shouldn't take more than a week, when we have the president saying what sort of bill he would pass. >> the grassley measure would have made it possible for 1.8 million people to become citizens and would have provided $25 billion for border security and set new limits on legal immigration. the feds' next move is up in the air and the march 5th dreamer deadline is coming up.
