With immigration reform stalled in Congress and the California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights being reviewed by the senate, tonight, we bring you a discussion on immigration. In studio with us we have Mercy Albaran with Mujeres Unidas y Activas working on their Domestic Workers Bill of Rights campaign; Noela Payton, a domestic worker who fought back and won a wage claim after her employer refused to pay overtime; and Roseli Ilano with Immigrant Nation, a short film series that spotlights the commonalities between recent immigrants and those whose families have lived in the US for generations.

The director of the film series is award-winning filmmaker Theo Rigby. As we’re in fund drive, we’re offering his documentary, Sin País, which won the best documentary and audience choice award at the Napa Valley Film Festival, as a premium.

And we hear from R.J. Lozada, our international reporter in the Philippines, with his commentary (passed on to us by Secretary General of BAYAN-USA Jessica Antonio) fresh from the people’s response to the State of the Nation Address (SONA 2013).
