Default Frontline Immigration Battle

If you missed it on PBS tonight, you can catch it here. Very informative.
Immigration Battle | FRONTLINE | PBS

- Tracks Luis Gutiérrez and his staffers over 1-2 year period and shows his as well as the latino groups tenacity.
- You can get an idea of how the dynamics between various staffers/reps from the 2 parties work.
- No mention of any "online movements/petitions/" etc. Things were moving because of the grass-root movement. WH had to move because of the political pressure. The melon campaign reminded me of the flowers campaign. Twitter was mentioned for maybe 3 seconds in the entire show and it was clear that the staffer was watching twitter just after a significant event.
- Number of times things were getting misunderstood/falling down because of "leaks"
- At the end nothing happened probably because of cantor's defeat and border surge.. still the push continues.
