Channel 11 to Air Deborah Duncan Special on Immigration
HOUSTON -- KHOU-TV Channel 11 will broadcast "11News, Crossing the Line: Immigration and Houston," a prime-time program that takes an in-depth look at the immigration debate sweeping our nation. The hour-long special airs Saturday, October 14th at 7 p.m.
The special hosted by Deborah Duncan focuses on issues ranging from the recent murder of an HPD officer committed by an illegal immigrant, to the immigration rallies that took place earlier this year and how these events may factor into the November elections.
"This special reflects our city and will give viewers an opportunity to learn more about immigration reform," says Duncan. "We want to acknowledge the issue as a community."
"11News, Crossing the Line: Immigration and Houston" includes a panel of local experts in a round-table discussion about immigration reform and the effects it has on Houston. It tackles issues related to Texas borders, crime, jobs, health, education and how some say the immigration status of undocumented workers is taking a toll on the daily lives of tax-payers.
Deborah Duncan is the co-anchor of Channel 11's daily morning news program, 11News This Morning. Duncan also hosts a number of primetime specials throughout the year.
