In case you missed it: Commentators united in opposition to vetoed immigration bill (video)

In case you missed it over the weekend, it’s worth watching the discussion that took place at the outset of the most recent edition of the political round table TV show, NC Spin. As an occasional panelist, I can testify that the program usually gives rise to spirited debate between progressives and conservatives.

Not so this week when it came to the topic of House Bill 370, the cynical anti-immigrant legislation advanced by Republican legislative leaders and vetoed by Gov. Roy Cooper. As you can see from the video below — the discussion runs for about seven minutes or so — the panel (which included former Republican Supreme Court Justice Bob Orr and John Locke Foundation commentator Rick Henderson, as well as host Tom Campbell, former Lt. Gov. Dennis Wicker and Policy Watch founder Chris Fitzsimon) found nothing positive to say about the legislation. Orr, in particular, was especially adamant in his condemnation of the legislation.
