Comprehensive immigration reform is a promise in Washington, D.C., but what are the chances of it becoming reality? That debate takes center stage this week on Latin Pulse. The program examines why has the legislation stalled and what are the prospects for passage through 2015. The program also deals with the effects immigration policy has on immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America. Also, the discussion covers the debate over guest worker programs and other provisions of the proposed reform. The news segment of the program covers a new breakthrough in the peace talks aiming to end Colombia's long civil war.
