The U.S. House of Representatives closed for its August recess without taking action on immigration reform. While in their districts, representatives are holding forums and town hall meetings to gauge their constituents’ views on immigration reform. Republican leaders are still reluctant to have a vote on any proposal that would include a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. Is it still possible to get a Republican majority for comprehensive immigration reform in the House? What are Republican reformers doing to force a vote in the House?
GUESTS: Héctor Barreto Jr, former White House cabinet member, Chairman, The Latino Coalition, Irvine, CA, www.thelatinocoalition.com; Eliseo Medina, Secretary-Treasurer, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Washington, D.C.
