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.

Derek Miller is the president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber in Salt Lake City, Utah. Earlier in his career, he worked as legal counsel on Capitol Hill and more recently as president of World Trade Center Utah.

Derek and Ali discussed the reasons behind the signing of the Utah Compact, a declaration of five principles that guide Utah’s immigration discussion. The Compact ended up reverberating through the national immigration discussion. The pair also discuss the beauty of Utah, its rural areas and the struggle within the Salt Lake region to fill jobs in all industries.
