Deal Allows Citizenship for Some Illegals

A bipartisan coalition of senators has voted for a bill that would allow many illegal immigrants to become citizens, putting the Congress a step closer to overhauling U.S. immigration policy.

Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, talks to Alex Cohen about the proposal.
