As we head into Independence Day celebrations, Jane Pauley looks at some data on the holiday.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – President Trump says he’s happy that he signed an executive order to stop immigrant families from being separated; calling reports to the contrary “fake news.” Trump was not happy about a report in Monday’s New York Times that said he “groused” about signing the executive order. “The executive order is great. It’s something I thought we had to do. We want children staying together,” the president said in a joint appearance with the King of Jordan. “There was a false story, fake news , in the New York Times, just the opposite… I was just saying yesterday before I read this phony story in the New York Times that I was very, very happy that I signed that.” The Department of Homeland Security says it has reunited 522 children with their parents, however there are more than 2,000 children still separated and in shelters. The House is expected to take up a broad immigration reform bill, but it appears unlikely it will get enough votes to pass. Republican leaders are expected to then shift to a narrower bill focused on keeping families together when they are detained at the border. “The President has made clear: we are going to continue to prosecute those adults who enter here illegally,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said. “We are going to do everything in our power, however, to avoid separating families.” Despite the current controversies over immigration, the President’s base is holding strong. A new Gallup poll says he has a 90 percent approval rating among Republicans.

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and two other water districts that agreed to fund the California Waterfix tunnel project announced today the formation of a public agency that will be charged with its design and construction. The MWD, which serves as a major supplier of water to the Los Angeles region, along with the Santa Clara Valley Water District and the Zone 7 Water Agency in the Bay Area, formed the Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Joint Powers Authority, or DCA, which will hold its first meeting on Thursday. “Our mission to modernize California’s primary water delivery system took another incredibly important step forward today,” said Jennifer Pierre, general manager for the State Water Contractors. “Northern and Southern California public water agencies have united in a partnership to efficiently and responsibly advance the construction of one of the most important infrastructure projects of our lifetime. We anticipate several other public water agencies to join the DCA in the coming weeks and months.” The MWD board voted last year to contribute $4.3 billion toward the WaterFix project, then voted last month to increase its investment to $10.8 billion, providing the remaining funding of the $17 billion needed to build the full two-tunnel project after some other major water agencies declined to invest in it. The California WaterFix project is designed to divert water from the Sacramento River as it enters the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and carry it to existing federal and state pumping stations in the southern part of the delta through one or two 35-mile tunnels. The California Department of Water Resources also announced that it has created the Delta Conveyance Office, which will oversee the work of the DCA. During the Thursday meeting, the DCA Board of Directors will consider entering into a management partnership with DWR. “Thoughtful decision-making, transparency and a commitment to public participation will be central to the mission of the DCA as it assumes responsibility for building California WaterFix,” Pierre said.
