Immigration Reform Ideas for Our Next President

Undocumented Workers' Economic Force

The presidential candidates all seem to agree that current immigration policies are broken and need to be fixed. But so far they've avoided dialogue on specific policy ideas. Martha Raddatz interviews Audrey Singer about the estimated 11 million people living illegally in the United States, and the economic force that undocumented workers exert. Her ideas include an Impact Aid Program that would offset state and local expenditures, and a New Americans Initiative to help integrate immigrants into American society.
