Immigration Reform Takes Center StageDownload audio (MP3)
President Obama is set to make a major speech on immigration reform Tuesday, one day after a bipartisan group of senators released a plan to overhaul the nation's immigration policy. President Obama has called immigration the top legislative priority for his second term, and he's not the only one. Republicans are also focusing on reform after losing the Latino vote by a large margin in the last election. We speak with a panel of immigration experts about this week's events. What does the future hold for immigration policy?
