In August, NCSL’s Immigrant Policy Project released a report showing that in the first half of 2012, lawmakers in 41 states enacted 206 bills and resolutions dealing with immigration. That’s a 20 percent drop from the same period last year, but still very much a hot issue, and not one that’s going away anytime soon. Shortly after the report’s release, NCSL’s Jon Kuhl sat down with the co-chairs of the NCSL Immigration and the States Task Force: Virginia Senator John Watkins (R) and Washington Representative Sharon Tomiko Santos (D).
