The program covers Correa's prospects for re-election and key themes for his next term. The program also looks at new affirmative action programs in Brazil and discusses the inequities for Afro-Brazilians in the education and corporate spheres. The news segment of the program gives the latest on the rhetorical debate in the United States regarding proposed reforms in immigration policies.
