Congress to Revisit Immigration Reform
A month after massive pro-immigration demonstrations around the country and just weeks after millions of illegal immigrants filed taxes in hopes of one day becoming citizens, Congress returned to Washington today from its two-week Easter recess. Tomorrow, the Senate Judiciary Committee holds a hearing on immigration reform. Congress is considering a wide range of proposals over what to do about the 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States, from toughening border controls to offering many a chance to become American citizens. Guest host Diana Nyad gets a preview of the challenge ahead from advocates on both sides of the issue.
