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.

Ali speaks this week with Amanda Ripley, a contributing writer to The Atlantic and a senior fellow at the Emerson Collective. She is the author  of “The Smartest Kids in the World – and How They Got That Way” and “The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes and Why.” Amanda recently profiled Watertown, New York, “The Least Politically Prejudiced Place in America.”

She talked to Ali about her start in journalism, the importance of traditional institutions in civil life and meeting two lifelong friends named Ann in Watertown who are political opposites.
