The immigration crisis in our nation has reached new heights. In the midst of the back-and-forth debate, we address some of the confusing elements of this issue and learn whether there could be a local impact.

We explore the complex issue of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central American. The kids have been pouring over the border, and there are questions about their fate. My colleague Michelle Faust has been working extensively on this story and will join me to discuss this issue. Our guests for the hour include: Director of the Greater Rochester Coalition for Immigration Justice John Lory Ghertner, University of Rochester Associate Professor of Anthropology Daniel Reichman, and from Fronteras: The Changing America Desk, reporter Jude Joffe-Block.

A discussion about the NY DREAM Act that the State Senate defeated earlier this week. In studio to discuss are Dr. John Ghertner, Carly Fox and Amairani Pena.
