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.

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.
