Two Takes: Reaction to Immigration Reform Proposals

With immigration reform in the spotlight this week, the NewsHour wanted to hear from people who have worked in the trenches on the issue over the last few years. We hosted an advocate who leans liberal and one who leans conservative to get their take on the new bipartisan push from Senators on Capitol Hill and President Obama.

I talked with NDN’s Simon Rosenberg a few weeks ago as the negotiations were just getting started, long before the group of eight senators outlined their framework for legislation.

And I spoke Monday with Jennifer Korn of the Hispanic Leadership Network. She worked in the George W. Bush White House and said she was heartened by the bipartisan effort coming together.

Katelyn Polantz and Cassie M. Chew shot these videos. They were edited by Chew and Meena Ganesan.
