This edition: Immigration: The Untouched TopicTweet
Original tape date: October 15, 2008.
On this edition of Independent Sources we explore why the conversation on immigration has been relatively quiet during this election campaign. We hear how some journalists in the ethnic media are battling what they see as anti-immigrant sentiment in mainstream media. Then we hear from an award-winning journalist who has covered immigration for the New Jersey newspaper, The Record.
