Making News Senate Says 'No' to Immigration Reform, Californians Say 'Yes' 4 MIN, 58 SEC

The U.S. Senate killed immigration reform today and it’s probably dead for the rest of President Bush’s term in office.  Coincidentally, the Public Policy Institute of California released a poll last night showing that immigration is the number one issue on the minds of Californians.

Main Topic The Local Impact of Today’s Supreme Court Decision on School Integration 19 MIN, 42 SEC

Some legal observers are confused by today’s affirmative action decision by the US Supreme Court. Four justices said that it's essential for schools to consider race as they try to maintain diversity among their students. Four of those in the majority said schools must be completely color-blind.  But the fifth—Anthony Kennedy—seemed to be saying that in some cases, it’s ok to use race. 

Guests:
Kevin Reed, General counsel for the Los Angeles Unified School District
Goodwin Liu, Assistant Professor of law and co-director of the Chief Justice Earl Warren Institute at UC Berkeley's School of Law
