The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

Generally, U.S. immigration policy has become one area without much hope of finding bipartisan compromise — as one side of the aisle tends to prefer to focus on humanitarian issues, and the other side talks more about border security. And usually somewhere in the middle, there’s a discussion about the economic impact.

A new column by the Republic’s Editorial Board argues the U.S. Senate should at least take action when it comes to farmworkers and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. 

The Show spoke with Editorial Board Editor Phil Boas about that.
