St. Louis callers on President Obama’s call for comprehensive immigration reform

I stumbled across an interesting video clip from a few weeks ago on KSDK Newschannel 5.  Channel 5 apparently links up with country radio personality Cornbread on a semi-regular basis to discuss the issues of the day.  Suprisingly, both sides of the debate were featured.

Working as an advocate for immigration reform and on behalf of my non-citizen clients, I sometimes forget the vitriol and level of anger from some members of society.  I was particularly struck by the first caller who said she was an immigrant from Bosnia who had obtained her citizen.  She was adamently opposed to allowing “illegal immigrants” from getting into status.  Not sure what her solution would be, but struck by the level of anger and righteousness in her voice.
