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.

Harvard Professor Mary C. Waters talks with Ali about the progress made by modern-day immigrants in learning English and integrating into U.S. society. Despite the current rhetoric surrounding immigration, Waters says that native-born Americans have a more welcoming attitude toward immigrants, and research shows that “Americans agree more about immigration than we do about a lot of issues that divide us.”

Ali also discusses the Forum’s Skills and Opportunity for the New American Workforce program with Jennie Murray, the Forum’s director of integration programs.
