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.

“Only in America” is taking a journey across the U.S.-Mexico border to see what attempting to enter the U.S. is like, what happens when migrants arrive, and how current border policies only create more disorder for migrants and Americans.

We’ll take a look at the how migrants often find themselves fleeing desperation and crossing into chaos — and how policies intended to incite fear are only making the situation worse.

By focusing on enforcement-only policies, policymakers think it will deter migrants from crossing. But we’ll hear from guests about the human consequences of disorderly policies, the chaos it’s creating on both sides of the border as asylum-seekers wait in Mexico, and what an ideal future for the U.S.-Mexico border could look like.
