Season One Finale and a Look Ahead

It’s the final episode of our first season! Usually you want to go out on a high note, but the work ahead and the specter of egregious immigration policies yet to come make that a difficult task. Fortunately, Kara Lynum is joined in-studio again by Ana Potratz-Acosta to answer some of your questions from the first season and give suggestions on how you can help steer our policies in a more humane direction. @immigrationpod @studioamericana @karalynum
