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.

We continue our series, Between a Wall and a Hard Place, by hearing about migrant shelters in the border region, how the faith community is helping, and the challenges they face in doing so.

Ali talks to Sami DiPasquale, a faith leader in El Paso, Texas, who leads two organizations that help recent immigrants: Ciudad Nueva Community Outreach, a faith-based non-profit that supports families – many of them recent immigrants – throughout the city, and Abara, an organization focused on borderland connections and supporting migrant shelters along the U.S.-Mexico border.
