This edition: The High Cost of CitizenshipTweet
Original tape date: October 15, 2012.
First aired: October 17, 2012.
On this edition of Independent Sources, we focus on why the number of naturalizing US citizens is down and one way that is being addressed. We hear about the looming health care crisis that may hit the city as hospitals in the five boroughs continue to shut down. And business is booming for Dominican barbers operating out of Bushwick, Brooklyn.
