Valley Edition - January 8, 2019 - Undocumented Students, Fresno Communities & Air Quality, Yosemite

Jan 8, 2019

On this week's Valley Edition: The San Joaquin Valley has some of the dirtiest air in the country. In Fresno and Kern Counties, a state law has introduced a new strategy to tackle the problem: putting air monitoring in the hands of the community.

Later, we look at how some undocumented high school students are navigating college applications and applying for driver licences. Some are choosing to opt out entirely.

Plus: You’ve probably heard about the trash and waste piling up in Yosemite National Park thanks to the partial government shutdown. But are conditions there really so dire?

Listen to the audio above to hear these stories and more.
