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.

U.S. farms feed millions of Americans, and they need roughly 2 million employees per year to do so. But we’re not meeting that need, and we’re seeing crops going unpicked and dying in fields. Our farms don’t have enough workers — and there aren’t adequate immigration pathways to allow more workers to do those jobs.

Throughout this series, we’ll see how immigrants play an outsized role our agriculture industry and how we need a better system for farmworkers and growers alike. Because a stable agriculture workforce — and our nation’s food supply —  is at stake. We’ll hear about the experiences of growers, farmworkers and more about the challenges they face — and ways to create the stability and opportunities they need.
