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.

We finish our series, The Myth of the Immigrant Burden, by discussing immigrant contributions to less visible industries, which are some of the most important but often the least valued. Domestic work — including caretaking, housekeeping and nannying — will continue to be key as our nation ages. But it’s long been undervalued, and workers are even more at risk if their immigration status is uncertain.

Ali talks to Ai-jen Poo, co-founder and executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, about recognizing the importance and dignity of domestic work.
