What really drives America’s ongoing immigration debate? To answer this question, the National Immigration Forum’s Ali Noorani interviewed nearly sixty local and national leaders across the nation, finding voices in faith, law enforcement, and business communities to paint a nuanced picture of America that looks beyond the blaring headlines to understand how communities across the country are confronting immigration and the changing nature of the American identity. In this book, Noorani reaches across the political spectrum to offer a new approach to politics, one that confronts problems and pushes all parties outside of their comfort zone in order to reach solutions. In the process, he helps readers realize that America’s immigration debate is not about politics but about the cultures and values that shape and define America. Especially now, when we feel our identity, culture, and values changing shape, the collective message from all the diverse voices in this inspiring book is one of hope for the future.
