Romney talks immigration, guv OKs Medicaid expansion and Utahns take to the streets over guns

Mitt Romney discusses his stance on Dreamers and promotes a merit-based U.S. immigration system. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert signs a Medicaid expansion bill that could cover 70,000 low-income Utahns if the federal government approves it. And thousands of students and supporters march against gun violence just after a counterdemonstration from gun-rights activists.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Courtney Tanner, Washington bureau chief Thomas Burr, government and politics editor Dan Harrie and columnist Paul Rolly join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
