Opinion: Obama’s immigration policy doesn’t go far enough

We’re starting a new daily feature on the show. Every day, we’ll highlight an opinion piece from around the country or our region and we’ll often feature the authors on the air.

We’re kicking off with a critical look at Obama’s new immigration policy that allows young immigrants protection from deportation.

Sayu Bhojwani wrote in The National Journal:

It’s hard to ignore this reality: The president’s deferred-action policy helps only an estimated 1.4 million immigrants and is only temporary. Even as the Democratic convention’s main stage mainstreamed the cause of these young immigrants, millions of other immigrants are struggling in the shadows.

What do you think of Obama’s new policy for young immigrants?
