President Obama will announce executive action on immigration in a primetime address on Thursday. His remarks are eagerly anticipated by millions across the country, including families here in Sacramento.

Gloria Casillas came to the United States 10 years ago where she met her husband and had a 6-year-old son who is an American citizen. While waiting for immigration reform, her biggest fear was getting deported and separated from her son.

The president's impending executive action brought relief because it meant she would be able to drive and work legally in the country. But she felt for
those who may not qualify for the protection.

Protesters occupy UC Davis building ahead of tuition hike vote


Around a dozen protesters refused to leave the UC Davis administration building Tuesday night, a day before the UC Regents consider a controversial tuition hike.

The students plan to spend the night in the lobby of Mrak Hall.

"It's largely symbolic that we're willing to occupy a space and claim our university back for ourselves," 5th year student Kabir Kapur said.

Kapur is one of many students who will head to the UC Regents meeting Wednesday morning in Mission Bay. The Regents will consider a proposal to raise tuition by five percent every year for the next five years.

"One of the main goals is to postpone the vote till January, till after the governor releases his budget," Kapur said.

But will buying more time open up the necessary cash flow to prevent a rise in tuition? Some students seemed doubtful.

UC Davis students protest proposed tuition hikes


DAVIS - A proposal to increase the cost of tuition at University of California schools across the system has been met with fierce opposition from some student groups.

Protestors crowded the UC Davis campus Tuesday afternoon holding signs and voicing outrage over UC President Janet Napolitano's proposal to raise tuition five percent every year for the next five years. Student Senator Mariah Kala Watson insisted costs are already high enough.

"No student should have to work three jobs, take out loans, apply for scholarships, and bankrupt their family," Watson told the crowd of hundreds cheering her.

Much of the message was targeted at the UC Regents who will consider the proposal.
