Panel discussion:
The US Senate passed a far-reaching immigration reform bill which some have hailed as the most significant step in tackling an issue which has blighted successive administrations in the White House. So, just how signiciant or even historic is this bill? It still has a long way to go in the Congress and there's every chance the right-wing fringes of the Republican Party and Tea Party activists will torpedo this bi-partisan bill.
