The Impact of Immigration on California

Hosted by

Immigration reform is moving back to the front burner in Washington as the Bush Administration cracks down on both undocumented workers and their American employers.  At the same time, a new report from the Public Policy Insititute of California says that in California immigrants increase wages for native-born workers, rather than pushing them down.  We hear from a journalist covering the Senate hearings, the study's co-author and one of its critics.
