Second Night of Primary Debate Puts Focus on Immigrant Rights & Joe Biden's Opposition to Busing

The second night of the first Democratic presidential debate was billed as a face-off between front-runners former Vice President Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders, but California Senator Kamala Harris took command of the stage Thursday night to challenge Biden over his recent comments about working with segregationists in the Senate and for his opposition to Delaware’s attempts to bus students in an effort to integrate its schools in the 1970s. The candidates also talked about immigration, with all of them in support of healthcare for undocumented people but split on decriminalizing the immigration system. For reaction, we speak with Rashad Robinson, president of Color of Change, as well as Andrea Mercado, executive director of New Florida Majority.
