collins and lithey said anythin this nomination? >> reporter: just putting out statements that they'll consider the nominee. this is not the most conservative candidate that the president could have gone with so he may win over the republican moderates. and if that's the case, the republicans may be able to do this all by themselves. happening today, more than 50 young immigrant children separated from their families at the mexican border are expected to be reunited with their parents. the children impacted by the deadline are all under the age of five. they've been held by the government for weeks now. a federal judge rejected the administration's attempt to keep detains the families in

united states. >> he said there's no word on when the two girls will be goin to talk about the weather. and it felt wayou. >> too dang hot. and i just heard from robert, one of our viewers, who lives in livermore with no air- conditioning. he agrees with me, too dang hot. >> it's july, what do you want? >> i want a cool july as well. >> it looks pretty warm to hot. the next couple of days should ratchet down a little bit. the tropical moisture which went crazy. lasvegas, southern california desert. and over to yuma, a massive dust storm. it was impressive. it was all over twitter. we do have some of the cloud cover in the santa clara valley. not a lot. a system to the north is preventing that.
