How to Deal with your Community's Immigration Problem

This story from today's Morning Edition highlights a cross-border program in North Carolina. The Program, called Latino Initiative, sends local policy makers to the home communities of North Carolina's undocumented population so that they can better manage the immigration situation in their communities.

The bottom line: once local officials start heading south of the border, their perspectives on the immigration situation broaden, and they realize that there is very little a local official can do to stop undocumented immigration.
