Durbin pushes DACA

Illinois U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is pushing for some undocumented immigrants to be allowed to join the military. He's holding a hearing today in Chicago that explores the benefits of immigrants in the Armed Forces. The hearing will take a look at how to get young undocumented immigrants - known as "Dreamers" - who qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to join the military. WBEZ's Chip Mitchell joins us to break down plan and the DACA. (Photo: Flickr/Center for American Progress Action Fund)
