The Ticket: The GOP Debate on Immigration

Josh Denmark/Texas Tribune
The line betwen the U.S. and Mexico plays large in the GOP Primary.

This week on The Ticket: The Texas Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott tackle immigration policy. The topic had a moment in the spotlight at the second GOP debate, but Republicans are divided on how to handle the millions of people living in the U.S. who crossed into the country illegally.

Tea party activist Katrina Pierson joins on the show to break down which direction she'd like to see her party move. And we’ll have a report on Jeb Bush going out on an immigration limb with his comments at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
