- President Obama plans to
lay out his administration's own proposals for immigration reform
that are supposedly more liberal than a separate bipartisan effort
in the Senate, according to the Washington Post. The proposal could
include a quicker path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
Immigration is a huge issue across the country. How would reform
impact California and its citizens? We'll talk about
it with Kevin R. Johnson
, Dean and Mabie-Apallas
Professor of Public Interest Law and Chicana/o Studies at UC
Davis School of Law.
Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
Barack Obama's announcement of immigration reform early in his
second term is a testament to the importance America's growing
Hispanic population played in his reelection. Hispanics are
not only a growing political power but they're set to become the
largest ethnic group in California by the end of the year.
Plus, Latin and Hispanic immigrants play a crucial role in
California's economy and business community. Joining us
to discuss how proposed immigration reform by President Obama
and the US senate could affect the Hispanic business community is
the CEO of the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
Perez, and the Chairman of the California Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
