Rhetoric vs. Research: The Success of Immigrant Integration

Subscribe

Harvard Professor Mary C. Waters talks with Ali about the progress made by modern-day immigrants in learning English and integrating into U.S. society. Despite the current rhetoric surrounding immigration, Waters says that native-born Americans have a more welcoming attitude toward immigrants, and research shows that “Americans agree more about immigration than we do about a lot of issues that divide us.”

Ali also discusses the Forum’s Skills and Opportunity for the New American Workforce program with Jennie Murray, the Forum’s director of integration programs.
