Most Americans agree our current immigration policy is not working -how to deal with it garners far more debate. As government mulls over ways to improve policy, the list of recent hate crimes continues to grow: three police officers shot Pittsburgh last April by a white supremacist, Dr. Tiller's assassination in Wichita, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum shooting. Can the government reform our immigration policy while taking strong measures to curb the violence? Joining us in studio today are Mallika Dutt, Founder and Executive Director of Breakthrough: Building Human Rights Culture, Rich Benjamin, senior fellow at DEMOS and Author of Searching for Whitopia: An Improbable Journey to the Heart of White America and Leonard Zeskind, a longtime civil rights activist and Author of Blood and Politics: The History of the White Nationalist Movement from the Margins to the Mainstream.
