U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO Reach Deal on Immigration Reform

In a major breakthrough for the prospect of comprehensive immigration reform the AFL-CIO and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce reached an agreement regarding the nation’s guest worker program.  The deal brings together labor unions and big business, two groups that clashed during the last immigration reform effort in 2007.  

NPR’s Talk of the Nation discussed the agreement and the problems with the broken immigration system.  This segment runs approximately 17 minutes.
