    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.

    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#822H] Big Business and Climate Change Earlier this month, President Trump formally withdrew the United States from the 2015 Paris climate change accord, in which 195 nations agreed to voluntary steps to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases released by burning gasoline and coal - emissions that cause global warming. Some of the strongest opposition to the move in the U.S. came from business leaders, who had urged the administration to stay with the accord. In the wake of Trump's decision, announced in June, hundreds of companies, including retail behemoth Wal-Mart and candy maker Mars, re-pledged to meet fossil fuel reduction targets recommended by scientists. The companies say the tactics will ultimately lower business costs and ebb the effects of climate change on supply chains. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Stephanie Sy reports on how some big companies are leading the way to combat climate change, with or without government action. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE
