There are reports that President Trump plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has given hundreds of thousands of young immigrants a reprieve from deportation. We’ll look at how recipients have been preparing, along with the role of immigration in Arizona’s economy. Afterwards, we’ll discuss how many Americans — especially millennials — aren’t using their vacation days, and then explore the rise of Asian-inspired night markets in Southern California.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
