Immigration Confusion

NPR's Melissa Block reports from New York City, one of the many places where immigrants are perplexed about tomorrow's changes in the immigration and welfare laws. While most immigrants won't be immediately affected by the laws, many are panicking. Some will lose their food stamps privileges, and others could be "excluded" from the country...that is, kept from reentering the country after their visas expire.
