UC President Janet Napolitano, President Obama Takes Action on Immigration, Assemblywoman-Elect Catharine Baker (#207H) Duration: 27:46 STEREO

University of California President Janet Napolitano
Hundreds of students staged raucous protests this week as the University of California Regents considered lifting a three-year freeze on tuition hikes. UC President Janet Napolitano called for up to 5 percent tuition increases over the next five years. The move put Napolitano in opposition to students, and Gov. Jerry Brown, who argued against the plan. It was approved by the U.C. Board of Regents on Thursday with a 14 -7 vote. Napolitano speaks with Scott Shafer about her vision for UC's future.

President Obama Takes Action on Immigration
Up to five million undocumented immigrants could qualify for protection from deportation under President Obama's executive action announced on Thursday. The move could have wide-ranging impact in California, home to nearly a quarter of the nation's undocumented immigrants. According to the Migration Policy Institute, 22 percent of the immigrants without legal status in California have been living in the U.S. for at least twenty years. And 83 percent have been living in the country more than five years.
