The national conversation about our Southern Border doesn’t reflect the reality of border life. In this episode of Only in America, Ali heads to the city of Nogales, Arizona and across the border to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, to hear the realities of Arizona’s largest international border community. There he learns how interactions with migrants and border patrol are at the core of everyday life in this border city.
Guests in this episode are Ernesto Portillo, a columnist for the Arizona Daily Star and editor of La Estrella de Tucson; small business owner Monica Weisberg-Stewart, chairwoman of Immigration and Border Security for the Texas Border Coalition; and Juanita Molina, executive director of the Border Action Network.
