Join our Public Insight Network to talk about issues in the Southwest and the 2012 election.
The Fronteras Vote 2012 linked seven public radio stations and their listeners across the Southwest for an in-depth, two-hour live call-in program exploring the issues surrounding the upcoming election and the role of voters in the region.
The broadcast featured Fronteras Desk reporters who cover the complex U.S.-Mexico border from Texas to California, including Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada. They were joined by experts on a range of issues to explore why the Southwest is considered a crucial region in the 2012 election.
The broadcast breaks down how the economy, education and immigration play a key role in the 2012 Vote and how these issues affect the community. Everything from the DREAM Act to same-sex marriage to immigration and SB-1070 to self-deportation. Plus, redistricting has changed the political landscape. What does that mean for voters?
