Immigration Looms Large in Midterm Elections

Hosted by  • 

Illegal immigration is one of the issues unresolved by the Republican White House and Congress.  So candidates all over the country are staking out their positions between guest-worker programs and sealing the border. That's taking a toll on the border itself. We hear how it sounds in Arizona and Ohio, whether it will bring Hispanic voters out to the polls and if African-Americans will vote to protect jobs now going to undocumented workers.  We'll also see what the uncertainty means for morale in the Border Patrol.
