This week, House Speaker John Boehner said it’ll be difficult to monetarily address the flow of undocumented kids across the U.S./Mexico border, until the 2008 law that allowed their travels to the aforementioned place is changed. All the while, protests have continued in the town of Murrieta, in Riverside County, where busloads of migrant kids without parents were turned away a few weeks ago. Joe Mathews writes the weekly “Connecting California” column and is the California editor at Zócalo Public Square. John Hunneman is a columnist for the Riverside Press-Enterprise, and is a resident of Murrieta. They spoke to KCRW's Steve Chiotakis for a discussion about immigration and Murrieta’s place in the debate.
