Notwithstanding the Monday, June 25, decision by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of Arizona v. the United States, relating to Arizona's SB 1070 immigration enforcement law, the subjects of immigration and the Latino vote received only the tiniest of attention during the July 1, 2012, Sunday public affairs program.
Indeed, the only mention of the subjects lasted a record-short 20 seconds as the Supreme Court's decision on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, the weather-related disruptions on the East Coast, and the contempt of Congress vote regarding Attorney General Eric Holder dominated the programs.
The following is a summary of the immigration-, refugee-, or demographic-related comments that were made during the July 1, 2012, Sunday public affairs programs:
NBC - Meet the Press. The guest list for the July 1, 2012, edition of NBC's "Meet the Press" program included NBC’s Chuck Todd, who speculated that the decision by the Supreme Court on Arizona's SB 1070 may be more politically significant for the 2012 election than was its decision on the Affordable Care Act.
