FROM THIS EPISODE

LA City Attorney Mike Feuer inherited a proposed injunction against six rival gangs in Echo Park—a hot residential market with a lively nightlife near downtown LA. Crime is down, but some neighbors support tough police tactics, while others warn about racial profiling in the interests of gentrification. With a meeting scheduled tonight and a court hearing later this month, we’ll hear different perspectives. And in today's Reporter's Notebook, Silicon Valley is pushing hard for immigration reform—with the goal of increasing the number of H-1 Visas for college graduates they claim they need from overseas. But a recent TV spot—reportedly paid for by group linked to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg—is aimed at immigration of a different kind.
