Republicans Using Amnesty to Court Latino Voters

Hosted by
President Bush is courting Latinos, attempting to lure a major Democratic constituency. He's hinted at amnesty for undocumented immigrants and won points with a White House leak suggesting Alberto Gonzales could fill the next Supreme Court vacancy. Now, California's GOP is following the President's lead. We take a look at the politics of immigrants and immigration, and the Republican romance of the Latino vote, with a national Republican campaign coordinator, a scholar from the Tom-s Rivera Policy Institute, and an immigration authority. (Managing editor Kyle McKinnon guest hosts.)
