The Daily Show has been in Austin, Texas all week long as part of their Election Day coverage, dubbed “Democalpyse 2014.” In last night’s episode, correspondent Al Madrigal filed a funny, yet poignant, story on how the immigration issue has shaped the misinformed views some Texans have of the state’s vibrant Latino community. Madrigal also does a great job of pointing out just how ludicrous some of the anti-immigrant claims really are. You’ll also notice a certain ALMA Awards winner make a hysterical cameo near the end of the clip. Enjoy!
