The US Senate has passed a detailed immigration bill that would toughen the borders while creating a path to citizenship for millions who entered the country illegally. And provide security for millions of children of illegal immigrants who were born in America , there are hundreds of thousands of immigrants from African and Caribbean nations who are of African descent. How should the African-American community regard the immigration issue? How does it impact the lack of jobs and opportunity in our Black community? A panel of organized labor and the religious community appeared on Afternoons with Amos to discuss this critical and emotional issue with Amos and listeners. Rev. Mel Jackson of Christian Love Baptist Church and Rev.

They were joined by James Meyer of UNITE, one of the many labor unions supporting immigration reform.
