Can a dialogue on one of the most controversial issues in American policy — illegal immigration — be passionate, and smart, and civil? The brilliant Jeff Greenfield of CBS News moderated a dialogue at the National Constitution Center that proved it can be done. You can watch it in full here.
I produced this discussion for the Peter Jennings Project, an organization dedicated to helping current and future journalists understand constitutional issues more deeply.

I remember the timing very well, because it was shortly after my first child was born — and Peter was completely supportive of my breastfeeding the baby on the sidelines while the panel took place.
