The segment highlights the impressive report released last week by an indpendent Council on Foreign Relations Task Force, co-chaired by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (R) and former White House chief of staff (under Clinton) Thomas F. “Mack” McLarty III, which stated the urgent need for a comprehensive overhaul of our nation’s immigration laws succinctly:
