REFORM: HEALTHCARE, IMMIGRATION AND THE CENSUS. Latinos are among those suffering the most drastic rises in unemployment. Due in part to the loss of employment and employer-based health insurance, Latinos continue to be among the most likely to be uninsured. Live from Capitol Hill, Samuel Orozco and Chelis López meet with leaders to talk about what is being done to include immigrants in federal health reform plans, and the impact of the 2010 Census on federal money for health care.
