President Obama promised immigration reform would happen his first year in office--but he now says the debate over health care and the financial crisis pushed that overhaul back until 2010. Amy Gottlieb, director of the Immigrant Rights Program at the American Friends Service Committee, talks about the current state of the country’s immigration system—and what’s happening in federal detention centers. Also: Congressman Jerrold Nadler talks about health care reform; and is there a microfinance bubble brewing?
