Posted By on Sat, Aug 24, 2013 at 2:55 PM

On last night's AZ Illustrated Politics: Congressman Ron Barber talked about the prospects of immigration reform and his own legislation to develop better metrics to measure the effectiveness of Border Patrol strategies; his concern about the cost of government-built housing in Ajo; his recent letter calling for more public comment on the Rosemont Mine; and the chances of a government shutdown later this year.

Then Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Lea Marquez-Peterson, Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries and attorney Jeff Rogers talked about the RNC's recent resolution opposing a path to citizenship for any undocumented people now in the United States; the ongoing battle over the Rosemont Mine; and Arizona Treasurer Doug Ducey's latest maneuvers in his exploratory campaign for governor next year.
