This week the Sunday shows are focusing on Syria and the continuing investigation on the Boston Marathon Bombing. The specter of immigration reform will also have a role in the programming.

Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who hasn't ruled out a bid against Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., in 2014, will be on Meet the Press to discuss national security. Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who is considering a Senate bid of his own, will be talking Syria on Face the Nation.

Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., who lost Tuesday's Democratic primary in the special election for Secretary of State John Kerry's former seat, will be on Fox News Sunday.

President Obama is in Mexico to talk immigration with Mexican Pres. Enrique Peña Nieto. Both will sit down with Univision's Jorge Ramos on Al Punto to discuss the trip. Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel, who will face City Councilor Eric Garcetti (D) in the city's mayoral election on May 21, will also be on the show.
