ATTORNEY GENERAL IN SACRAMENTO VO/SOT

LIVE: CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY GENERAL JERRY BROWN SAYS AN ACCOMPANYING BUDGET BILL TO PROHIBIT CITIES AND COUNTIES FOR BEING SUED FOR NOT COMPLYING WITH NON EXISTENT GREENHOUSE GAS REGULATIONS WILL NOT CHANGE HIS APPROACH TO GETTING INVOLVED IN LAND USE PLANS THROUGHOUT THE STATE. BROWN SAYS HE INTENDS TO ENGAGE IN DISCUSSIONS WITH DEVELOPERS AND LOCAL LEADERS BEFORE FILING SUIT. IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA YESTERDAY, BROWN ANNOUNCED THE SETTLEMENT OF A LAWSUIT AGAINST SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY THAT HE HAD FILED.

SUPER: JERRY BROWN/ATTORNEY GENERAL/D-OAKLAND

SOT: (:39)

SAYS: "IN THE MEANTIME WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE ON WITH OUR WORK, THERE WAS NEVER A PROSPECT OF SUING TO STOP SOME TRANSPORTATION PROJECT. THAT WAS ONE OF THE SPECTERS CONJURED LATE AT NIGHT IN THE REPUBLICAN CAUCUS, SO IN EFFECT IT WON'T CURB WHAT I'M DOING TO FIGHT FOREIGN OIL DEPENDENCY BUT IT MADE ONE REPUBLICAN FEEL BETTER SO THAT WAS GOOD, IT WAS MOSTLY SOME KIND OF PSYCHOLOGY PROGRAM THERE THAT THEY NEEDED TO GET THE VOTE."

SUPER: SENATOR DAVE COGDILL/R-MODESTO

SOT: (:24)

SAYS: "THAT'S WHAT I WOULD EXPECT HIM TO STAY WE THINK THE REALITY IS VERY DIFFERENT AND WE'RE CONCERNED ABOUT HIS OBVIOUS WILLINGNESS TO GO OUT AND FILE LAWSUITS TO TRY TO MAKE PEOPLE ADHERE TO RULES THAT HAVE NOT BEEN PROMULGATED. WE THINK THAT'S UNFAIR, UNNECESSARY, QUITE COSTLY AND ISN'T THE INTENT OF THE LAW."

SUPER: FILE

VO TAG: BROWN CONTENDS REPUBLICAN SENATORS INSISTED ON THE BILL TO PREVENT CITY AND COUNTY LAWSUITS TO HOLD UP THE BUDGET WHICH WAS 52 DAYS OVERDUE BEFORE LAWMAKERS PASSED IT YESTERDAY.

SUPER: JERRY BROWN/ATTORNEY GENERAL/D-OAKLAND

SOT: (:15)

SAYS: "I MET WITH SENATOR DUTTON AND I TOLD HIM WE'RE GONNA SETTLE THAT SUIT, WE'VE GOT IT SETTLED, BUT THEY STILL WANTED TO JUST SOLDIER ON IN THEIR EFFORT TO HOLD THE BUDGET HOSTAGE AND GET SOME KIND OF FIG LEAF TO COVER THEIR SHAME I SUPPOSE."

SOT: (:10)

SAYS: "DISRUPTING THE CLIMATE IS NOT A LITTLE TRIVIAL ISSUE FOR POLITICIANS. IT'S GOING TO EFFECT YOU, YOUR CHILDREN, AND THE FUTURE AND I TAKE IT DEADLY SERIOUSLY."

SUPER: GEORGE ANDERSON/DIRECTOR/LAW ENFORCEMENT DIVISION

SOT: (:20)

SAYS: "SPECIFICALLY WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS HAVE AN INTEGRAL ROLE IN OUR OWN INITIATIVES FOR SUPPRESSING CRIMINAL ACTIVITY STATEWIDE, PARTICULARLY IN THE AREA OF GANGS, GANG VIOLENCE AND VIOLENT CRIME IN PARTICULAR MAJOR NARCOTICS TRAVELING. BOTH OF US HAVE WITNESSED FIRST HAND THE TOLL OF GANG VIOLENCE AND WHAT IT CAN DO TO OUR COMMUNITIES."

SUPER: SENATOR DAVE COGDILL/R-MODESTO

SOT: (04:23-:43)(:20)

SAYS: "WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE AMOUNT OF REGULATION ON LAND USE, WE'RE THE LEADERS IN THE NATION IN REGULATION AND THE COST TO PROVIDE HOUSING IT'S ONE OF THE REASONS HOUSING IN THIS STATE IS SO EXPENSIVE IS BECAUSE OF THE INTERFERENCE AND THE REGULATIONS WE PUT ON DEVELOPMENT."

SUPER: SENATOR RAY ASHBURN/R-BAKERSFIELD

SOT: (07:55-:24)(:29)

SAYS: "I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY DOUBT THAT THIS IS A POLITICAL MOVE BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO TRY TO MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF ON GLOBAL WARMING. FILING LAWSUITS FOR REGULATIONS THAT DON'T EXIST GETS HIM IN THE NEWS AND TAKES A STAND ON GLOBAL WARMING. BUT WHAT IT DOES FOR THE PUBLIC IS UNDERMINE THE CONSTRUCTION OF OUR HIGHWAYS, REPAIR OF OUR BRIDGES AND THE REPAIRS TO OUR LEVEE SYSTEM THAT ARE ESSENTIAL FOR THE WATER SUPPLY IN OUR STATE."

DEPORTED WOMAN'S SON VO/SOT

LIVE:

CARETAKERS OF THE EIGHT YEAR OLD BOY WHOSE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT MOTHER WAS RECENTLY DEPORTED RESPONDED ANGRILY THIS MORNING TO QUESTIONS REGARDING THE APPROPRIATENESS OF THE BOY'S PUBLIC APPEARANCES. EIGHT-YEAR OLD SAUL ARELLANO'S MOTHER, ELVIRA ARELANO, WAS DEPORTED TO MEXICO FROM LOS ANGELES ON SUNDAY BY UNITED STATES IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS.

SUPER: TODAY/ STATE CAPITOL

VO: (:30)

ELVIRA ARELANO HAS BEEN FIGHTING HER DEPORTATION FROM THE UNITED STATES SINCE 1997, TAKING REFUGE INSIDE A CHICAGO CHURCH FOR THE PAST YEAR BEFORE GOING TO LOS ANGELES LAST WEEKEND TO LOBBY CALIFORNIA LAWMAKERS TO CHANGE IMMIGRATION LAW. PUBLISHED REPOTS INDICATE SAUL WAS UNCOMFORTABLE WITH REPORTERS AT A NEWS CONFERENCE YESTERDAY IN SAN JOSE. ON MONDAY, HE WAS DRIVEN FROM LOS ANGELES TO TIJUANA TO VISIT HIS MOTHER BY HIS GODMOTHER, EMMA LOZANO. BEFORE THIS MORNING'S PRESS CONFERENCE IN SACRAMENTO, A REPORTER ASKED SAUL IF HE WAS HAVING FUN GOING AROUND SEEING THINGS, TO WHICH SAUL TWICE REPLIED "NOT REALLY," HE WAS LATER COMPELLED BY LOZANO TO RECITE A STATEMENT TO REPORTERS. STATE SENATOR GIL CEDILLO SAYS SAUL'S SEPARATION FROM HIS MOTHER INDICATES THE PROBLEM WITH CURRENT IMMIGRATION LAWS.

SUPER: SENATOR GIL CEDILLO/D-LOS ANGELES, ET AL

SOT: (3:48)

SAYS: "THIS IS NOT SIMPLY POLITICS, AND IT'S NOT POLLING, AMD IT'S NOT ABOUT WHAT'S POPULAR. THIS IS REALLY ABOUT THE CORE OF OUR FAMILY VALUES."

REPORTER: "BUT, BUT THESE CHILDREN OBVIOUSLY ARE NOT ENGAGED IN WHAT'S GOING ON HERE TODAY. SO, DO YOU SUPPORT THE USE OF CHILDREN AS POLITICAL PROPS?"

SAYS: "THE EXPRESSION OF THIS EFFORT, AND THE DIVISION OF THESE FAMILIES, IS A STORY THAT NEEDS TO BE TOLD TO ALL OF AMERICA. BECAUSE I DO NOT BELIEVE, AND I THINK THE, UH, THE, I THINK IT'S INDICATIVE, AND IT'S BEEN INDICATED THAT AMERICAN FAMILIES DO NOT SUPPORT THESE POLICIES. SO IF AMERICA KNOWS THAT THE SLOGANS AND THE JINGOISM IS RESULTING IN CHILDREN BEING SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS, I BELIEVE AMERICANS WILL NOT SUPPORT THAT. BUT AMERICANS DO NOT SUPPORT THAT."

REPORTER: "SO THIS CHILD IS BENEFITING FROM BEING TAKEN AROUND THE COUNTRY, PUT IN FRONT OF CAMERAS?"

COLEMAN: "I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE. BUT I'M GOING TO TELL YOU THIS. THE, THE WAVE OF HATE AND RACISM IN THIS COUNTRY, THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE LIKE YOU TO CALL THESE CHILDREN ANCHORS, AND THAT TODAY, AFTER ALL THE TEARS THAT HE HAS SHED, AFTER ALL THE TIMES, AND ALL THE SUFFERING, AND ALL THE, THAT HE HAS HAD TO GO THROUGH, FOR YOU TO SAY HERE THAT'S HE'S UNINVOLVED IN THIS PROCESS, ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND? HAVE YOU LOST YOUR HEART? IS THERE NOTHING HUMAN LEFT IN YOU, THAT YOU CAN BE SO INVOLVED IN THIS WAVE OF POLITICAL HATE, THAT YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT A CHILD IS, OR WHAT A HUMAN BEING GOES THROUGH? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?"

REPORTER: "SO HOW IS THIS CHILD, SO HOW IS, SO HOW IS THIS CHILD BENEFITING FROM BEING PUT ON DISPLAY LIKE THIS?

COLEMAN: "IF YOU, IF , IF ,IF..."

REPORTER: "HOW IS THIS CHILD BENEFITING FROM THIS DISPLAY?"

COLEMAN: "FROM THIS DISPLAY?"

REPORTER: "YEAH."

COLEMAN: "THIS CHILD IS FIGHTING FOR HIS MOTHER, AND FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE. AND THIS...THIS IS THE ONLY SALVATION HE HAS. YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TWO DAYS AGO? HE SAT THERE, JUST LIKE HE DONE WHEN HE WAS FOUR YEARS OLD, AND HAD 15 ARMED AGENTS RIP HIS MOTHER AWAY FROM HIM. THAT'S THE TRAUMA, THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT."

REPORTER: "AND, PUTTING HIM ON DISPLAY TODAY IS GOING TO MAKE THAT BETTER."

COLEMAN: ,...AND TODAY, HE'S FIGHTING BACK, AND FEELING BETTER, AND WITH FRIENDS, AND DOING WHAT HE'S SUPPOSED TO DO."

LOZANO: "AND FEELING THE SUPPORT AND LOVE OF THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM. NOT EVERY CHILD HAS WHAT SALVITO HAS. SALVITO HAS THE SUPPORT OF HIS CHURCH,

REPORTER: "SO LITERALLY PROPPING HIM IN FRONT OF A MICROPHONE, SO LITERALLY PROPPING HIM IN FRONT OF A MICROPHONE, FOR, TO, TO RECITE A MESSAGE IS GOING TO BENEFIT HIM HOW?"

LOZANO: "EXCUSE ME SIR..."

COLEMAN: "MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL, BROTHER, MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL. YOU'RE IN TROUBLE."

SANDOVAL: "TEN OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDRENS, RIGHT NOW, ARE IN PRISONS, ALREADY, WITH NO MOTHER, WITH NOTHING. YOU KNOW, AND THEY DON'T HAVE THE SUPPORT, THE OPPORTUNITY THAT THESE COULD HAVE. AT LEST THEY HAVE THE SUPPORT OF THE FATHER AND THE MOTHER, AT LEAST.."

LOZANO: "...YOU TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN. IT'S WHY THEY CHOSE TO FIGHT THE RACISM THAT THEY BROKE THE LAW. THE LAW IS BROKEN. EVENT THE PRESIDENT ADMITS THE LAW IS BROKEN. BOTH PARTIES ADMIT THE LAW IS BROKEN. EVERYBODY ADMITS THE LAW IS BROKEN, BUT TO ENFORCE THE LAW, THEY USE YOUR TAX DOLLARS, MY TAX DOLLARS, TO PUT 15 AGENTS ARMED TO FOLLOW AND ARREST A WOMAN AS IF SHE'S A TERRORIST, LIKE SHE'S BIN LADEN. BUT YOU THINK WE'RE DOING SOMETHING WRONG. WE ARE JUST BRINGING TO LIGHT, SO PEOPLE CAN SEE THE TRUTH. THAT IS WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. I THINK YOU NEED TO EXAMINE YOURSELF. THANK YOU, AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS FROM YOU ANYMORE."
