U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador

Congressman Raul Labrador

Idaho's newest congressman makes his first appearance on Dialogue. U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador talks with Marcia Franklin about his first nine months in office and takes questions from viewers.

Labrador, an immigration attorney and former Idaho state representative from Eagle, was elected to Congress in November 2010. The Republican is serving on the House Natural Resources Committee as well as the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The 112th Congress has been dominated by fiscal issues as the federal government struggles with its growing debt. But social concerns are also on the docket, and national groups have called on Labrador to speak to immigration issues.
