The deadline for Congress to come to a decision about the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has come and gone with no clear solution. The 700,000 recipients are living in a continued state of uncertainty. Our reporter Camille Stuyvesant recently spoke with a local DACA recipient about her experiences.

When President Donald Trump ordered an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, last fall, he told Congress to pass a replacement by March 5, 2018. That did not happen and now those protected by the program could soon be eligible for deportation.

Some of Nevada’s Congressional leaders are responding to possible changes in federal immigration laws. Reno Public Radio’s Natalie Van Hoozer has the story.

On Friday, the federal government shut down. Part of the reason was that lawmakers were unable to work out a deal on the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program. Among the lawmakers who voted against a spending bill because of the lack of action on DACA, was Nevada’s Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto. She spoke with our political reporter Paul Boger about that vote.
