There are about 12 million illegal immigrants in the USA. A proposed bill in the Congress about immigrants issues heated up the debate. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants and supporters of immigrant rights held rallies around the nation recently. So, in this edition of Hello Washington, we look at the problems of illegal immigrants in the USA. Our distinguished guests were Dr. Partha Banerjee and Syed Mohammedullah.
Dr. Partha Banerjee is a writer and an immigrant rights activist. He is the Executive Director of New Jersey Immigrant Rights Policy Network.
Syed Mohammedullah is a veteran Bangladeshi-American journalist in New York.
The panelists felt the proposed bill violates human rights. Callers wanted to know more about the bill, why it is being proposed etcetera.
