Craig speaks with Patrick Oakford of the Center for American Progress about the economic growth that could accompany immigration reform in Michigan.

In April, a bipartisan group of eight Senators filed the "Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013", which would provide immigrants with a pathway to earned citizenship. A recent report by the Center for American Progress estimates that providing legal status and citizenship to the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States would eventually help boost the economy.
