The Boston Marathon bombing has brought new attention to the ongoing debate over immigration reform in Washington, D.C.
Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the bombing, became a naturalized citizen about seven months ago and his brother Tamerlan, the other suspect, was a legal permanent resident.
Ranking Senate Judiciary Committee member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said at a hearing that new immigration reform needs to be carefully considered, "especially in light of everything that's happening in Massachusetts now."
Proponents of reform, on the other hand, are "insisting that the country's national security depends on an immigration system that makes sense, and the current one doesn't," reports Fawn Johnson in the National Journal. "They say it deflects resources away from cracking down on dangerous criminals and it is lax on too many people who break the law."
Johnson joins The Daily Circuit to discuss how the Boston bombing will shape the immigration reform debate.
