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.

For this week’s episode, Ali talked to Ado Mustafic, a refugee from Bosnia who lives in Twin Falls, Idaho. Fleeing the ethnic cleansing of Bosnian Muslims, his family embarked on a two-year journey crossing borders as refugees. Ultimately, they resettled in the U.S. and started over in Idaho.

Ado talks about growing up amidst the war in Bosnia that tore his family apart and coming to the U.S. just two days before 9/11. He tells Ali about what it’s like living in Twin Falls, how he feels unsafe worshipping at local mosques in the U.S., and about the Americans in his community who have welcomed him.
