Yuma Mayoral Elections, Immigration Reform, and the Feral Cat Population

Aug 14, 2013

On this week's Arizona Edition, KAWC's Kim Johnson brings us more news on Yuma City Elections.  On August 27th, the city's primary could determine the race for Yuma Mayor.  We hear from candidates Raul Mendoza and Douglas Nicholls, each has served on the Yuma City Council.

U.S. House Speaker John Boehner has refused to bring the Senate Immigration Reform Bill to the House floor for a vote.  Many speculate immigration reform is all but dead.  KAWC's Michelle Faust spoke to Congressman Raul Grijalva to get his view of the future of immigration reform in the House.

Officials speculate there are up to 45 thousand feral cats in Yuma County.  These animals cause a public nuisance and spread disease.  As an alternative to euthanizing the felines, the city is considering a trap, neuter, and release program.  KAWC's Maya Springhawk Robnett brings us more.
