Executive action on Immigration: Opponents prepare to fight

Republican Congressman Steve King from Iowa says President Obama has  no constitutional authority to take executive action on immigration that was laid out in a speech to the nation. Rep. King descried a wide variety of options to counter the President's plan, including a resolution of disapproval, censure and funding cuts.

Alberto Gonzales served as Attorney General during Pres. George W. Bush’s administration. He spoke with Anderson about ambiguities in the plan regarding Presidential power. He also said that he hoped that this will motivate the Congress to take legislative action instead.

Sources: Officer Darren Wilson is in talks to resign from Ferguson police force

The Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown is in the final stages of negotiations with city officials to resign from the police force. That's according to sources close to the talks. A grand jury could wrap up as soon as tomorrow, deciding whether Officer Darren Wilson should be indicted for the shooting. Anderson discussed the implication of these negotiations with defense attorney Mark O'Mara, who represented George Zimmerman and Paul Callan, a former prosecutor, who is now a criminal defense attorney.

Does the Ferguson grand jury have the last word when it comes to the indicting Officer Darren Wilson?

Law enforcement sources say the grand jury could reach a decision on whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson by this Friday. Missouri's Governor has already declared a state of emergency ahead of the expected protests.

While the grand jury's proceedings are going on behind closed doors, the grand jurors are not sequestered. It is possible they are aware that a lack of an indictment could incite a new round of anger and protest.
Anderson discussed the latest on this case with our CNN legal analysts, criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos and former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin.

Why wasn't Bill Cosby prosecuted for alleged rape in 2005?

One of the women who has accused Bill Cosby of rape is Andrea Constand. Back in 2005, she came forward alleging the comedian drugged and groped her at his house.

Bill Cosby has not been charged in connection with any of the rape allegations made against him. Constand settled a lawsuit against Cosby.

Former Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Prosecutor Bruce Castor made the decision not to charge Bill Cosby in that case.In a discussion that also included CNN Legal Analyst Sunny Hostin, Mr. Castor told Anderson he believed Constand's account, but did not have the forensics to back it up.

Parts of the Buffalo, New York area have already been hit with more than six feet of snow and forecasters are warning several more feet are on the way. Several people have already died in this storm. While, a pregnant mother who couldn't make it to the hospital in time gave birth in a fire house and others were stranded in the snow.

Chrissy Hazard was at home with her husband, a friend and seven children when a wall of snow broke through the back door and trapped everyone inside. She spoke with Anderson from inside the house.

Bethany Hojnacki went into labor during the storm and couldn't make it to the hospital. While her husband Jared was out in the snow, he ran into a firefighter who happened to be helping a stranded labor and delivery nurse. Bethany gave birth to her daughter Lucy Grace at a nearby fire house, then another stranded nurse arrived. She specialized in maternity and caring for newborns. Jared Hojnacki told Anderson his story and said 'God was really with the people who needed him.'
