The Political Price of Betting on Immigration

This week on The Takeaway Friday with Amy Walter, a big look at immigration from history and political strategies to consequences and the current state of immigration and the electorate. After announcing a zero tolerance at the border and the forced separation of children from their parents, outrage grew - from the media, the public and politicians on both sides of the aisle. We hear from a Republican strategist who was at the center of an immigration debate weighs in on how the party has responded historically and if they have learned from past mistakes; experts discuss how the Democrats have lost their way when it comes to immigration reform and what they need to address to keep progressives happy; and a look at how Latino voters are responding to the rhetoric surrounding immigration.
