Episode #446H

KQED 9: Fri, Sep 8, 2017 -- 7:00 PM

In the wake of the Trump administration's Tuesday announcement that it is ending the Obama-era DACA program, we look at several perspectives on immigration policy. Dubbed DACA for "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," the program allowed young, undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children to obtain temporary work visas and avoid deportation.
*Congressman Jeff Denham Central Valley Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) supports the DACA program, but says Congress should craft a more permanent legislative solution.
*California Attorney General Xavier Becerra California Attorney General Xavier Becerra plans to sue the Trump administration for its decision to rescind DACA, which he says will cost California's economy a billion dollars and hurt roughly 200,000 DACA beneficiaries living in the state.
* 'Dreamer' Robert Nu?ez Like many DACA beneficiaries known as "Dreamers," 23-year-old Robert Nu?ez has been able to live, study and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation. Nu?ez came to the U.S. as a toddler from Mexico and just recently graduated from UC Berkeley with hopes of working as an immigration attorney.
*The name Cesar Chavez is synonymous with farm worker rights, but Dolores Huerta, the woman who co-founded the United Farm Workers union with Chavez, is much less known. The new documentary, Dolores, aims to change that by highlighting the critical role Huerta played, and continues to play, as an activist and civil rights leader.
*Dolores Huerta, President, Dolores Huerta Foundation
*Peter Bratt, Director, Dolore
