Fusion's Jorge Ramos on what he learned covering the 2016 race

Rep. Joaquin Castro on immigration reform: "Hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst"

Representative Joaquin Castro (D-TX) spoke to Fusion’s Jorge Ramos and Alicia Menendez directly after President Obama’s State of the Union speech. Though he strongly supports President Obama’s executive action on immigration reform, he is doubtful Republicans will be able to act on their own. “I want to believe there is a sincere bone in their legislative body when they say they want to do something on immigration,” Castro said. “But to me it seems as the 2016 presidential primary ramps up on the Republican side there is still this race to the right to see who can be most anti-immigrant.”
