With recent news that Obama's will begin pushing for immigration reform in 2013, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro joined PoliticsNation to discuss how that compromise should work, and to highlight ways he thinks the Republican party is confused about its recent loss.
He criticized the GOP for claiming that tone, rather than policy, is the reason most Latino voters rejected Romney.

A new Politico/George Washington University poll finds that 60% of Americans support hiking rates on those making over $250,000 a year, while just 38% oppose doing so. In other words, Obama's position is overwhelmingly popular.
