Ali Noorani- There Goes the Neighborhood: How Communities Overcome Prejudice and Meet the Challenge of American Immigration

What really drives America’s ongoing immigration debate? To answer this question, the National Immigration Forum’s Executive Director, 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 the changing nature of the American identity. Noorani will discuss his findings from the book—namely, the powerful role of culture and values in America’s immigration debate, and how a diverse range of communities are working to make America a welcoming place for long-established citizens and new arrivals alike.
