Tensions have been rising over the issue of immigration in recent weeks. The protest and town hall in Murrieta, California, is an example.

Conservative talk radio hosts blame Obama’s policies for the increasing numbers of migrant children arriving in the U.S., and attribute Eric Cantor’s loss to his support for immigration reform in the House.

NPR’s David Folkenflik talks to Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about conservative talk radio and its recent impact on immigration.
