The Immigration Debate -- Again?

Event Description

Immigration reform – you may think you’ve seen this movie before, too many times already. But President Obama and influential members of Congress, Democrat and Republican, are preparing to bring the issue up again, perhaps as early as January. How has the debate changed? What will the legislation look like? And what are its chances, with Washington more polarized than ever and unemployment heading for 10 percent? Washington-based reform advocate Tamar Jacoby will talk about the prospects and the debate she expects in the months ahead.
