    KQED NEWSROOM [#446H] 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.
    Guests:
    *Dolores Huerta, President, Dolores Huerta Foundation
    *Peter Bratt, Director, Dolore

    Washington Week [#5710] President Trump stunned Washington this week when he bypassed Republicans and struck a deal with Democrats to raise the debt limit and fund the government for three months. Conservative House members expressed their frustration to ousted Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who took aim at House Speaker Paul Ryan's leadership.
    *Did the president go rogue and sell out the GOP? Has the Republican Party been thrown into permanent disarray or can the warring factions mend their ideological differences?
    *Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that provided legal protections for as many as 800,000 undocumented people who came to this country as children. Mr. Trump chose to delay the phase out of the Obama-era program for six months to give Congress a chance to enact a fix, but the president has sent mixed signals to "Dreamers" about their fate if no compromise can be reached.
    *Robert Costa will discuss Trump's relationship with Congressional leaders and its impact on the legislative agenda with:
    *Michael Scherer of The Washington Post
    *Yamiche Alcindor of The New York Times
    *Nancy Cordes of CBS News
    *Jeff Zeleny of CNN

These refugees escaped Vietnam after the end of the war, but were rejected by all countries in which they sought asylum. When all refugee camps in Southeast Asia were closed, the stateless refugees chose to stay in Thailand illegally, holding onto the hope of finding a new home. Over the last 25 years, the stateless Vietnamese have lingered in the shadows of Thai society dodging authorities with one hope in mind: to find a country that would accept them as its citizens. duration 56:40   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
