Today in Reno, like in many cities across the nation, protestors spoke out against President Donald Trump’s announcement that he will be ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. Attorney General Jeff Sessions also announced that Trump is giving Congress six months to find a legislative solution. KUNR reporter Stephanie Serrano has more. 

There have been multiple local protests, including one in front of the Federal Courthouse Building and another on the UNR campus.

The White House has stated that President Trump will announce his decision about the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on Tuesday and Nevadans are reacting. KUNR reporter Natalie Van Hoozer has more. 

Those with DACA lived in the U.S. illegally when they were young, and the program protects them from deportation. Maria Toca entered the U.S. on a visa, but it expired before she gained legal status. She was the first person in the nation to receive DACA. Today in a Facebook video, she voiced her concern about the possible end to the program.

President Donald Trump made quick work of his most recent trip to Reno, staying for only an hour and 23 minutes. But in that time, the president delivered a rather sedate message to veterans of the American Legion. 

In a speech that lasted less than a half hour, President Trump called Congress to take greater steps to improve services and support for veterans and their families.

Residents living in and around the Truckee Meadows gathered in Downtown Reno Monday night as part of a vigil to honor the victims of last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

But as Reno Public Radio’s Paul Boger reports, the remembrance was something akin to a rally against white-nationalists.

UPDATE: 1:30 p.m. Thursday, July 27, 2017

Governor Brian Sandoval is directing leaders of the Nevada National Guard to make no modifications to the state's policy regarding whether transgender soldiers and airmen can openly serve.

Acting as commander-in-chief of the state guard, Sandoval says he has requested information on what protections the state can put into place to support individuals already serving.

Nevada currently has one openly transgender service member.

Just one day after President Donald Trump's inauguration, thousands of demonstrators from Northern Nevada and Eastern California took to the streets of Reno calling for solidarity against the new administration. As Reno Public Radio's Paul Boger reports, protestors say they will fight for equal rights, income equality and the environment. 

 

Marching down Virginia Street, peaceful protestors held signs with messages like "love trumps hate," "my body, my choice" and "women's rights are human rights."

Many of Donald Trump’s comments about women made waves during this year’s presidential campaign.

Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick sat down with a local therapist who specializes in gender and human sexual issues to discuss Trump’s language on the campaign trail.
