While the Republican presidential candidates have taken hard line positions on illegal immigration, rank and file GOP voters in New Hampshire tend to have a more nuanced position on the issue.  Pilar Marrero, senior political writer for La Opinion, says Republican voters she has met in New Hampshire are worried about illegal immigration, but they don’t necessarily support policies that would separate immigrant families.

In this podcast, recorded on the eve of the 2012 New Hampshire Primary, Marrero and free lance journalist Valeria Fernandez speak with Fi2W Executive Producer John Rudolph about the mood of the voters in the Granite State.  Fernandez talks about her reporting on the state’s small but growing Latino population, and their concerns about the Republican candidates and President Obama’s immigration policies.
