AZ Illustrated Politics: Grijalva Talks Immigration, Rosemont, Syria & More

Posted By on Fri, Aug 30, 2013 at 3:30 PM

On tonight's AZ Illustrated Politics: Congressman Raul Grijalva stops by to talk about the prospects of immigration reform in the House of Representatives; his concerns about a anti-gay flier targeting Sunnyside School Board member Daniel Hernandez; his opposition to the Rosemont Mine; and his concerns about potential military action in Syria and the NSA's surveillance programs.

Then the AZ Illustrated Politics panel brings together Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Lea Marquez-Peterson, Republican strategist Jonathan Paton and Pima County Democratic Party chairman Don Jorgensen to talk about this week's immigration town hall with Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake; the debate within the Republican Party over shutting down the government if Obamacare is not defunded; whether a referendum effort to block an overhaul of Arizona's election laws will make the ballot; this year's Tucson City Council elections; and much more.
