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 begin our series, “The Myth of the Immigrant Burden,” by learning about the contributions of immigrants in the trucking industry through the lens of the growth of the Punjabi trucking community in California.

Ali talks with Raman Dhillon, head of the North American Punjabi Trucking Association about how the trucking industry is changing and how Punjabi immigrants are stemming its labor shortage. In an industry that historically has been associated with white men, new drivers are bringing new music, food and culture.
