How Did We Get Here?: Charles Kamasaki

This week, we pick up where we left off and take a look at what happened in immigration between the 1960s and 1980s. Following the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, the next major immigration reform came during the Reagan era of the 1980s, and Charles Kamasaki was a firsthand witness. He’s now a Senior Cabinet Adviser for UnidosUS, and author of Immigration Reform: The Corpse That Will Not Die. Charles told Ali about the hurdles we must overcome to create solutions, the politics of compromise, and how we can bring future reforms across the finish line.
