11:00 Earlier this week, a bipartisan group of eight U.S. Senators unveiled a proposal for immigration reform. On this hour, we’ll compare and contrast the Senate plan with the President’s plan that was also announced earlier this week, and we’ll hear from opponents. Guests

11:00 In a 1995 medical study, it was found that Latinas who were born in the U.S. tended to esteem a thinner figure, while those who immigrated after seventeen years of age had less desire for a thin body. The study attributes this to the fact that those arriving in the U.S. later in life were not socialized early on to the prevailing fashion of thinness perpetuated in U.S. culture and media. How are Latin Americans transitioning to life in Ohio? Guests

10:00 The number of American children won’t shrink in the coming years, but the number of children of non-Hispanic whites will drop along with the baby boomers, and those who fill the gap will be children and grandchildren of immigrants. How are we preparing them to play a role in the future of our country? On this hour of "All Sides," we'll hear from an immigration expert, and also from a founder of Rwandan Women in Action a local group that provides mutual support to refugees from Africa. Guests
