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.

At the federal level, there is very little chance that any progress will be made on immigration reform. But in the Arizona Legislature, lawmakers could have the opportunity to bring about some change — specifically for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, the so-called "DREAMers."

A new Republic editorial encourages House Speaker Rusty Bowers to allow a vote on legislation that would give DACA recipients in-state tuition at Arizona’s public universities.

The Show spoke with the Republic’s Phil Boas about the bill.
