As the immigration debate continues in Congress, we'll revisit the first in our series of conservations about immigration policy and reform.

What should it look like? And what should we know about the nation's immigrant history as the new policy is created?

Pilar Marrero, senior political writer for La Opinion joined The Daily Circuit to discuss her book, 'Killing the American Dream: How Anti-Immigration Extremists Are Destroying the Nation.'

What does robust but practical immigration reform look like? What's the best way to handle people who are living and working in the United States, but who came here illegally?
