In this episode of the Demystifying Diversity Podcast, guests discuss the numerous benefits of Latin American immigration and share their first-hand accounts of immigration and deportation. They speak about the catastrophic effects of the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy and the physical and linguistic walls that are constructed out of hate.
Policy experts and academics illuminate the many benefits that Latin American immigration and civic participation have had, and continue to have, on America's economy, society, and culture. They dismantle the mythology that supports anti-immigration rhetoric and reveal the reality that immigration is essential to cultural liberation.
In this episode, you will be called to develop your skills as a generous and attentive listener. As we move forward, it is essential to value the richness that comes from an influx of new people and possibilities.
