for everybody, for good guys and bad guys. >> reporter: no one knows for sure if farook and his wife had help from worldwide terrorist organizations when they planned and murdered 14 people. why they picked this target or if more attacks are planned. but investigators think farook's iphone, which was found inside this suv, after the couple's fatal shootout with police, could hold the answers. >> we still have one of those killers' phones that we have not been able to open. it's been over two months. we're still working on it. >> reporter: a federal judge has ordered apple to help the fbi break into farook's encrypted phone. apple would have to write special code that would disable a security feature that erases the phone if too many incorrect passwords are tried. that would let the federal government launch a so-called brute force attack in which every possible password combination would be used until the phone is unlocked without losing the data. some apple customers are siding with the company. >> everywhere we're being forced to give up more and more in the name of "security."

handed over will be protected. >> less than eight people who will have access to the information. >> reporter: she says they will be overseen by a court- appointed monitor. in the meantime, parents have until april 1 to opt out their kids' information from the data dump. but for now, parents are divided. >> i can see where that would be very helpful that the information is shared. >> i would have concerns about it. >> reporter: the department of education got back to us late this evenly and said it opposed turning over any and all personally identifiable information but when we asked why it won't just turn over the requested information without names and socials, a representative said, quote, i don't have a good answer for you. meanwhile, statement lawmakers announced new legislation today that will prevent schools from collecting those social security numbers to begin with. bottom line they don't need them. you don't have to give them to a school. but often times they are requested on forms and parents automatically fill it out. >> or do like the last four numbers. >> there's no reason to give them any of it, frankly. if it's not required, then always opt not to provide a
social security number and in this case, the nonprofit is saying we don't want that. we don't want the names. just give us the redacted information. >> good point. thank you. well, this afternoon, pope francis is showing his support for migrants or his last day in mexico. he is saying mass in a border town where many mexicans have tried to get into the united states. cbs reporter adriana diaz is in mexico city. ♪[ music ] >> reporter: pope francis became the first pope to visit the mexican border. in juarez across from el paso texas, the pope met with prisoners. later he says mass before 200,000 just 50 yards from the u.s. border. people started pouring in before dawn to get a good spot. >> hey, papa! >> reporter: some came on foot from texas. more than 50,000 people crossed this border between el paso and juarez every day. some want to see the pope but won't risk leaving the u.s.
