The top local stories this afternoon from KERA News:
Reports that President Trump will wind down the program that protects so-called "DREAMers" rocketed through Houston's immigrant community Monday. Houston bills itself the most diverse big city in America. A quarter of its residents were born outside the U.S. and a third of those residents are undocumented.
And as KERA's Stella Chavez discovered in a shelter there, federal rules make that a huge challenge after a disaster like Hurricane Harvey.
- Homeowners who’ve been navigating the floods in Houston and the Gulf coast now face another daunting task: Navigating FEMA and insurance. KERA’s Christopher Connelly checks in with one family just starting the process.
Here in North Texas, more than 3,000 evacuees are in shelters across the area. Sleeping on cots and rotating the same clothes every few days can be a grind. KERA’s Courtney Collins stopped by one of the smaller Dallas shelters a few days before it closed to get an up close look at the volunteers trying to bring fun to life in a shelter.
You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:22 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
