The top local stories this morning from KERA News:

President Trump’s decision to wind down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program affects about 120,000 Texans who have legal protections from DACA.

Out of fear, many so-called “dreamers” in North Texas didn't want to talk to KERA about the decision. One who did says he’s hopeful Congress will put forward comprehensive immigration reform.

Other stories this morning:    

  • There are a number of differences between the shelters housing Harvey evacuees and the ones victims of Katrina stayed in 12 years ago. A big one is telemedicine.
