Elephants in the Room on NewsHour Weekend Sunday
Hope you're enjoying your Sunday afternoon!
Along with some of the day's headlines -- our signature piece on tonight's program is about one of the elephants in the room: immigration.

Join us as we look at proposed legislation in New Jersey called Tuition Equity, a plan that would allow undocumented students to qualify for in-state tuition at state universities and colleges.
By the way -- #humblebrag -- we posted this piece online earlier this week and then took your questions in a Facebook chat we like to call #AnchorHours. Check out this week's conversation, featuring correspondent Rick Karr.
Before our tuition equity piece airs, we'll have an update for you on the impending government shutdown -- a back and forth that continues among those whose mascots are elephants and donkeys -- with political editor Christina Bellantoni. Also included in tonight's program is an interview on the healthcare exchanges that are set to open Tuesday.
Oh and a story about actual elephants-- in Zimbabwe. Apparently poachers are now using poison to kill them for their tusks and ivory.
That's all coming up tonight.
Thanks for watching.
