This week on Hispanic AGENDA: Latinos' views on gay marriage suggest tolerance, but what about acceptance? How challenging is it to be a proud Latino, while openly gay? We ask Ernesto Santalla, President of the Capital Area Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

Plus, Congress goes into recess without addressing immigration reform; will the president defy Congress and act alone? And if he does - what will it entail? Maru Mora of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network and CASA de Maryland’s Sheena Wadhawan make the case for an executive order.

Then, the Roundtable has lots to say about a new poll that finds that Hispanics are divided as to what to do with the migrant children currently being cared for by the U.S. federal government, and how there’s plenty of blame to go around when it comes to the issue of immigration.

Don’t miss ABC’7s Hatzel Vela, Judy Pino from the Libre Initiative and Jose Sueiro from MetroDiversity.com.

Hispanic AGENDA airs in English Saturdays at 6 p.m. on NewsChannel 8, and in Spanish on Sundays at 5:30pm on Telemundo Washington.
