Salt Lake City, UT – The Senate is currently considering a bill that would overhaul immigration to the United States. There are currently some 12 million undocumented workers living in the country, and the legislation includes an increased budget for border security and a temporary worker program. The questions raised by this legislation aren't just about the immigrants themselves; the US economy has come to rely on the labor immigrants supply. Wednesday on RadioWest, we're talking about the relationship between immigration and business, and we're asking how much Americans are willing to pay for a system that works.
