President Obama wants to implement an immigration package through his powers of executive order and this decision has set off a controversial debate in Congress. Friday on Vermont Edition, Sen. Patrick Leahy was our guest to discuss immigration and other issues facing the U.S. Senate, such as this week's vote on the Keystone XL pipeline. We also discussed the failure this week of a bill Leahy sponsored to restrict government surveillance.

Broadcast live on Fri. Nov., 21 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
