Film Shows Kennedy Battle for Immigration Reform

Many fighting for immigration reform most likely know of John F Kennedy’s book A Nation of Immigrants. Now HBO is airing a documentary on Robert Kennedy’s continued struggle for immigration reform.

The film, “The Senators’ Bargain,” follows the late Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts and other key players in the failed effort to pass landmark immigration reform in 2007. It takes on the complicated task of showing how compromises are made to a bill even before it is debated by lawmakers. (link)

From the New York Times:

“The Senators’ Bargain,” a documentary on HBO2 on Wednesday that chronicles how liberals lost the 2007 battle to fix the immigration system, is a study in “No, we can’t.”
