A New Immigration System? + Will The Miami Dolphins Become Welfare Queens?

1.  A new immigration system or the same old politics?


This week, the Senate "Gang of 8" and the President made separate announcements on Immigration Reform.  We will get reactions from Gaby Pacheco, David Caukett (Floridians for Immigration Enforcement), Sarahi Uribe (National Day Labors Organizing Network),  Pramila Jayapal (Center for Community Change), Donald Anthonyson (Families For Freedom), Susana Barciela (Americans for Immigrant Justice) and more.

2.  Will the Miami Dolphins be the next welfare queen?

If you have been following the news, football or both, you will know that the Miami Dolphins are asking taxpayers to foot most of the bill to upgrade the Sun Life Stadium.  Most of Miami is still pretty peeved about the raw deal that we got for subsidizing the Marlins.  The Dolphins' owner insists that this time it is different.  Tonight we will check in with Billy Corben (Director and Producer of documentaries including Cocaine Cowboys, Square Grouper, Broke, and Limelight) about whether Miami is set to get another raw deal, or not.
