Longer grass on America's lawns, higher costs for child care, maybe emptier emergency rooms. What would society, what would your daily life, look like, without undocumented immigrants? We explore how illegal immigration actually affects American life.

Guests:

Jeff Passel, senior research associate, Pew Hispanic Center

Mark Krikorian, executive director of Center for Immigration Studies

Tamar Jacoby, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute
