FROM THIS EPISODE

Los Angeles is one of more than a dozen California counties will no longer detain non-citizens at the request of immigration authorities who might want to deport them. The partnership that's led to record numbers of deportations during the Obama Administration is no more. Is it justice or a risk to public safety? Also, the Kings and the Rangers may ignite a new rivalry between LA and New York.  But, when it comes to ticket prices, New York is already winning hands down.

Nutritional standards for the federal school-lunch program don't always go down easy — and the processed food industry's not ready to swallow financial losses either. We hear about a dispute that goes from school cafeterias to Capitol Hill...to the Obama White House.

A Legal Defeat for Immigration and Customs Enforcement 15 MIN, 22 SEC

ICE — Immigration and Customs Enforcement — started its Secure Communities program in 2009. Local law enforcement agencies were asked to detain non-citizen inmates for up to 48 hours after their jail terms had expired. ICE would then decide who could stay in the country and who should be deported. Former Sheriff Lee Baca supported Secure Communities, and some 33,000 were departed from Los Angeles County alone. Not any more. The LA Sheriff's Department is one of about one hundred agencies around the country that no longer allows detainers.

Gearing Up for the Stanley Cup 9 MIN, 3 SEC
