The Nuns on the Bus have hit the road again. Last year, this group of Catholic sisters traveled the country by tour bus, dropping in on towns to spotlight growing poverty in America and to protest the federal budget proposed by vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The sisters made quite a splash, so welcome to the sequel, Nuns on the Bus II. This time they're spreading the good word on immigration reform.
Bill Moyers & Company caught up with the group's founder, Sister Simone Campbell, as this year's tour kicked off in Newark, New Jersey, just a short distance from Ellis Island, where so many immigrants first entered the United States.
