The Battle Of 187, Part 1: They Keep Coming
Our three-part miniseries about Proposition 187 in collaboration with the Los Angeles Times begins. Host Gustavo Arellano learns how Prop 187 was born 25 years ago, and talks to the pair of Orange County political consultants who helped write it. We learn what California looked like in 1993 and how the then-governor of California, Pete Wilson, attached himself to Prop 187. Issues around immigration are beginning to set the tone for a huge political debate in California.
