The panel of this week’s PBS To The Contrary tackled a wide array of issues starting with the call for Syrian first lady Asma al-Assad to stand up to her husband’s attack on his countrymen. We then turn to women in the United States and a new Pew poll that finds that women place a high-paying career as a top priority. Finally, we tackle the issue of immigration with a specific focus on a move to make e-verify mandatory.
