What really drives the immigration debate? It’s people, not politics.

Join us for the “Only in America with Ali Noorani” podcast to hear how Americans from all walks of life and from across the political spectrum are experiencing changes in their communities as a result of immigration.

Faith leaders, law enforcement officials, business owners and others speak openly about the way culture, identity and values are shaping and defining our country, and they offer a constructive way forward in the immigration debate.

This week, Ali talks with DACA recipient Esmeralda Tovar-Contreras. She's the mother of a 19-month-old baby and her fiance is in the U.S. Army. As thousands of Dreamers are threatened with deportation by the Trump administration's decision to rescind DACA, Esmeralda hasn't moved back in to the shadows. Instead, she debated the issue in heated exchanges on late-night TV with a group of voters who oppose DACA. 

Plus, we deconstruct the ruling behind President Trump's ban on travel from 7 mostly Muslim-majority countries.
