Hours after the release of the Senate’s torture report, President Obama sat down for an interview with Univision News and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos. The subject quickly switched to immigration and that’s when things got heated. Mr. Ramos tells Anderson that the vast majority of the Latino community supports President Obama, but there is anger over the millions of deportations during his administration.
President Obama followed up on last night's speech by signing a pair of memos associated with his executive action on immigration. The measures will let up to five million undocumented immigrants stay in the country temporarily. House Speaker John Boehner says the executive order is sabotaging President Obama's chances of passing other reforms that he wants. Speaker Boehner even said this will damage the presidency itself. Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos spoke with Anderson and said the President was pushed to take this action by Latino groups, but also by the inaction of Republicans.
President Obama described today's meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry as constructive. The President also expressed plenty of frustration at the politics surrounding the country's immigration crisis. Anderson looks at how some of the political rhetoric has turned to wild conspiracy theories.
Anderson discussed all of this with Univision's Jorge Ramos, Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash and Senior Political Analyst David Gergen.
