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.
