The Push To Overhaul Immigration

The Push To Overhaul Immigration

A group of senators and President Barack Obama have both unveiled plans to fix what's ailing the nation's immigration policy. Kojo examines what they agree on and where the challenges lie.

It's a move that experts say marks a dramatic jump-start for a long-stalled process, and reflects the voice of the voters in last year's presidential race.

Kojo examines the key proposals and explores what they would mean for individuals and the nation.
