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.

This week, Ali talks to Professor Karla McKanders, who directs the Immigration Practice Clinic at Vanderbilt Law School. She also teaches refugee and immigration law. She has written about the intersection of immigration and Blackness, and is releasing a children’s book on the issue soon.

Professor McKanders and Ali spoke about the experiences of Black immigrants at the border, how segregation and policing impact Black and immigrant communities, and the need for nuance in our legal systems.
