Arizona native Raul Alcaraz; Lizbeth Mateo of Los Angeles, CA; Tania Unzueta of Chicago, Il; Mohammad Abdollahi of Ann Arbor, MI; and Yahaira Carrillo of Kansas City, MO, protest at US Sen. John McCain’s office, 5-17-10 in support of the DREAM Act.
Latino voters prefer a DREAM Act that promises citizenship. They’re not so keen on an alternative DREAM Act proposed by Florida Senator Marco Rubio. That’s according to a new poll.
DREAM stands for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors. Rubio has suggested a DREAM Act tjat would provide undocumented youth temporary legal status, if they go to college or serve in the US military. But it does not guarantee a path to citizenship. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin's version would lead to permanent legal status.

New Mexico’s largest ever wildfire is still growing. Last year the Forest Service spent one point four billion dollars fighting fires. They expect to spend that much or more this year containing these so-called “mega fires.”
Forest Ecologist Wally Covington says several factors have led up to what he calls a crisis. In the late 1800s cattle overgrazed and left the landscape bare -- so no small plants to keep fires on the ground. Also, for a long time fire was seen as the enemy so forests grew thick.
The massive wildfire raging out of control in southwestern New Mexico is now the largest in the state’s history and is zero percent contained. Prolonged drought and near record low humidities are complicating fire-fighting efforts.
The Whitewater Baldy Complex fire has grown to over 170-thousand acres, surpassing last year’s record breaking Las Conchas fire that caused the evacuation of the city of Los Alamos and threatened the nation’s nuclear weapons labs there.
