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 sits down with his mom, Najma, who tells him about her early days as a newcomer to the U.S. and opening a physical therapy practice — and how to properly cut a mango.

The pair discuss Najma’s journey to the U.S., the difficulties of building a life in a new country and living thousands of miles away from family, and the neighbors who became like family.
