IMMIGRATION REFORM, SERVED TWO WAYS / by Maria Hinojosa | February 1, 2013

IMMIGRATION REFORM, SERVED TWO WAYS
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

Two proposals for comprehensive immigration reform were released this week, from a bipartisan Senate committee and from President Obama. As we launch into political negotiations for more detailed plans, we ask: is this a breakthrough, or are we headed to another impasse as in previous years? We speak to New York Times reporter Julia Preston about the developing plans.

She is a 1997 recipient of the Maria Moors Cabot Prize for distinguished coverage of Latin America and a 1994 winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Award for Humanitarian Journalism.
