Dozens of protesters gathered outside of Congressman Steve Knight’s Santa Clarita office with demands for a “Dream Act now.”

L.A. Voice, a chapter of the Pico National Network, grabbed signs, megaphones and their voices to bring their message and demands for continuing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

The protest comes the day after DACA expired, ending a nearly six-year executive action to protect immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a two year deferred action from being deported.

Hospitality workers in Rancho Palos Verdes are proposing an ordinance to require the exclusive Terranea Resort and nearby Trump National Golf Club to supply employees with "panic buttons" to alert authorities in the case of a sexual assault.

Once the paperwork is approved, Unite Here, Local 11, will have 90 days to collect about 4,000 signatures to put the measure on the ballot.
