The top local stories this morning from KERA News:

Six Dallas-area locations were among nearly 100 7-Eleven convenience stores targeted by federal immigration agents on Wednesday. They served the stores with audit notifications and conducted employee interviews to verify employees as eligible to work legally in the United States.

A local Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer said there were no local arrests, but 21 people across the country were taken into custody on suspicion of being in the U.S. illegally.
