Undocumented Parents Struggle To Raise Citizen Children

In Texas yesterday, President Obama argued that America's current immigration system tolerates rule breakers and punishes rule abiders. He stressed the need for comprehensive reform.

Host Michel Martin speaks with Yoshikawa about his new book Immigrants Raising Citizens.
