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.

Check your local listings here or join us on the NewsHour homepage for our online live stream at 5 p.m. EDT.

Thanks for watching.
