Your Call: Principles for humanitarian immigration policies


(Feb. 15, 2017) We continue our weeklong immigration series by talking about what a fair and humane immigration policy would look like.

Listen here:

By the end of 2015, a record 65.3 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide. An estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants live in the United States. Last year, nearly 85,000 refugees were resettled in the country. Immigrants and communities are struggling with fear over the consequences of being detained, jailed, and deported. What would a humane immigration system look like?
