    With all the changes to national immigration policy, there are questions about how Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, operates. In the Central Valley, immigrant rights attorneys are trying to get people ready for ramped up enforcement by teaching them how to interact with immigration agents. Plus, in Butte County, workers continue to reinforce the crippled Oroville Dam spillways. The damage threatened a major flood event and triggered mass evacuations earlier this month. Its made Oroville the most talked-about dam in the nation. Maybe less talked-about has been the herculean effort mounted by hundreds of people who responded to the crisis. This week marks the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which authorized the incarceration of Japanese-Americans. And it's sparked a lot of artistic projects...including one by two photo historians. They're trying to keep the voices -- and faces -- of those interned Japanese Americans alive. Plus, politics takes center stage at the Silicon Valley Theater Company and our monthly review of new music from all over the map.

    Maria doesn't want us to use her last name, because like so many immigrants who are undocumented, she's feeling pretty vulnerable these days. One day, Maria was at work at a hamburger stand in Fresno. She had a lot on her mind. Her son Edgar was in jail, and like her, Edgar is undocumented. She got a phone call from a man who started asking her questions about her son. He turned out to be an immigration agent. We dropped in on a training session that teaches people like Maria how to interact with immigration agents.
