Temporary business investors worry immigration bill leaves them out

The "Gang of Eight" have unveiled an immigration reform bill, but some prospective immigrants feel they have been left out of the discussion. For instance, those who come on temporary “investor” visas and pour substantial personal savings into starting businesses here in the hope that they’ll eventually be given a pathway to citizenship have some concerns. WBEZ’s Odette Yousef shares one of their stories and explains how the new bill will impact family reunification and visas for certain types of foreign workers. (Photo: WBEZ/Odette Yousef).
