Immigration Law Enforcement and the Future of Comprehensive Reform

For the week of March 2nd, 2014

Midway through 2013, the prospects for comprehensive immigration reform legislation in Congress appeared good. But momentum has since stalled, and fellow Republicans turned thumbs down on House Speaker John Bohener’s recent immigration reform initiative. On this week’s Access Minnesota, entrepreneur and Minneapolis School Board Chairman Alberto Monserrate talks about immigration reform, and how enforcement actions against undocumented workers are impacting Latino-owned businesses in Minnesota.

  • Issues: How immigration law enforcement is affecting local businesses; Why the system is broken; What current immigration law means for undocumented immigrants; How reformers are pushing Congress to act on comprehensive immigration reform
