Yesterday, we heard about a new hotline that helps protect local immigrants who may be swept up in raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers.

At the rally announcing the new "Rapid Response" phone line, news director Steve Mencher spoke with immigrant rights activist Anna Salgado. He asked  whether her neighbors’ fears of deportation have been heightened by the North Bay fires and how the hotline will help.

We also have a story from The California Report on the slump in local tourism and efforts to address it. Here's the story as it first appeared.
