became one of 800-thousand daca recipients, which gave undocumented immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally.sot daca did provide a lot of economic security to a lot of young peopleword that president trump plans to end the program comes as no surprise to valenciano who now works for california's immigrant youth justice alliancesot sandy valenciano/daca recipient 34-40 obama never did anything to secure this program so we knew it was just a matter of time. still the end of the program is of great concern to valenciano, especially as it relates to another daca recipient, her sister who has 4 kids.sotfor my sister the impact is a lot more because my sister has a lot to lose if this program were to be taken away it's losing her security to be able to provide for her

shortly after the flames broke out.this is all happening near the eagle ridge golf club in gilroy.that is where we find kron 4's j.r. stone. j.r., are crews making any progress? (j.r.)they certainly are. this fire is only 10 percent contained but it has not burned any structures and it is not nearly as close to homes tonight as it was last night. behind me you can see some of the firetrucks that are out here. these crews aren't going anywhere overnight.today was a busy one. helicopters and planes were used to drop both water and fire retardent on the flames and the areas that are smoldering near the eagle ridge golf club. i could see the smoke from this fire in san jose. 100 acres have burned. at one point today crews said it was at 130 but after some of the haze and smoke cleared they determined it to be a 100 acre fire. this video was shot by a neighbor from her backporch. that is how close people were to these flames. since last night the fire has gone in the opposite direction of these homes. that neighbor said she saw teens running from the area after the fire started.it
