Immigration Reform and the Guest Worker Program

Hosted by

The immigration reform now being debated would amend and extend the guest worker program.  We’ll hear what it could mean for farmers, migrant laborers and American workers who say they’re being pushed out of the job market.  Would the new rules improve working conditions for foreigners and domestic employees?  Also, a new book traces the world of today back to 1979 and the actions of Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, Deng Xioping and the Ayatollah Khomeini. We’ll talk with the author.
