Immigration Debate - March 16, 2012

March 17, 2012

This week, we discuss the immigration debate, and the story of Jose Antonio Vargas. The former Washington Post award-winning reporter revealed that he has been living illegally in the U.S. since he arrived here from the Philippines at the age of 12. We talk with Vargas on why he made the disclosure and how he hopes to shine a light on others like him pushing for passage of the DREAM Act. We also talk with University of Washington Political Science Professor Luis Fraga about immigration, the Latino vote, and the 2012 Presidential Election. Finally, our Insiders Roundtable weighs in on Washington Congressman Jay Inslee's decision to leave his congressional seat to focus full-time on his run for Governor.
