“Everything starts at the border but ends up in Washington.”
On the debut of AMERICA’s weekly newsmagazine show, Jorge Ramos traveled to the U.S. – Mexico border to find out why many people think more fences are the solution for the problem of illegal immigration. What he did find is that as long as people in Mexico and Central America are unemployed, or making $5 dollars a day when they can make the same amount in the United States in an hour, immigrants are going to find a way to come in. Ramos says, “Fences are not the solution. Not right now.”
Meanwhile in Washington, President Obama is reaching record deportation numbers. He says he can’t use his executive order to stop them, but many Latinos believe he can. On the other hand, Republicans and Speaker John Boehner are stalling on comprehensive reform, something Ramos believes will hurt them in 2016.
