    S1. Ep8. The Immigrant Vote: What, How Many, and Why it Matters

    S1. Ep8. The Immigrant Vote: What, How Many, and Why it Matters

    Not only is immigration a main stake in the forthcoming U.S. election, it is predicted that this year will see unprecedented numbers of immigrant voters. So, what does that look like? We wrap up this season of Immigration & Democracy with perhaps the killer question: what is the importance of the immigrant vote in U.S. politics – how has it shaped trends historically, and what will it mean for this year on November 3rd? We are joined by Matt A. Barreto, Professor of Political Science and Chicana/o Studies at UCLA and the co-founder of the research and polling firm Latino Decisions, and Janelle Wong, Professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland and Co-Principal Investigator on the 2016 National Asian American Survey. Together they work on the Collaborative Multi-racial Post-Election Survey.

    S1. Ep7. Migration, Fashion, Power: The Once and Future Kings and Queens

    Can fashion help us make a better world for our children? Today, we talk to Walé Oyéjidé. With clothes and prose, his work aims to reframe the lens through which migrants and asylum seekers are commonly seen in Western society, and to celebrate their lives and stories.

    S1. Ep6. An All-American Wake Up Call: How Nativism Paved the Way for Trump’s Immigrant War

    S1. Ep6. An All-American Wake Up Call: How Nativism Paved the Way for Trump’s Immigrant War

    Is Trumpism really a bolt from the blue, or is his hardline approach to immigration a continuation of majority-ethnic nationalism that goes back to settler colonialism? And, in their efforts to appease certain voters with more securitized immigration policies, to what extent did the administrations of Clinton, Bush and Obama pave the way? Join guest host Dr Stephanie DeGooyer in conversation with Daniel Denvir as they explore American nativism in the past and present. How is it shaping politics as we know it, and what are the lessons for the future of the immigrant’s rights movement?

    S1. Ep5. Facing Deportation: A Game of Cat and Mouse

    S1. Ep5. Facing Deportation: A Game of Cat and Mouse

    Deportation is when a country takes measures to remove a foreign national from its territory. It's something faced by criminal fugitives, but also by refugees fleeing persecution who are apprehended at the border, Dreamers studying at the nation’s best colleges, and probably some nice guys you’d run into at your local bodega. Today, we talk to a team of academics who are part of a new international research collaborative, Life Facing Deportation, about what we do and don’t know about forced returns in the U.S. and Central America. We start off the conversation with an unlikely story of detention and return. Santos explains why, real crime to him is not crossing a border without permission, but failing to respond to his family’s acute humanitarian need. If deportation serves as a way of marking the boundaries of belonging in nation states, is it possible to envision a democracy without deportation?

    S1. Ep4. Sing Out Strong: Immigrant Voices in the Arts

    The words immigrant activism and opera are seldom used together, but White Snake Projects is pioneering this cause.

    S1. Ep3. Hostile Terrain: Missing on the Migrant Trail

    We know that more than 3,200 people have gone missing since the 1990's to the present day in the Sonora Desert, Arizona alone – but what does that mean? And how do you document atrocities happening to people who are, by the very nature of their plight, undocumented? In today’s conversation, we talk to archaeologist turned anthropologist Professor Jason De León, from UCLA, about what it looks like to cross a border, and what kind of traces people leave behind in the past and present. We also introduce you to a new global exhibition, Hostile Terrain 94.

Gaining Insight

My grandparents immigrated from Italy more than a century ago. Even then there were strict quotas on whom to “let in.” We are a republic formed by indigenous people, descendants of both Anglo/European pioneers and former slaves, immigrants, and refugees from around the world. I’m grateful for a program that gives serious thought and voice to issues of immigration policy and how as a country we can progress through laws that are fairly executed, or when needed, changed. I’m looking forward to more episodes. Thank you. Special shout out for the superb soundtrack!!

This program is really enlightening! 👍🏻👍🏼👍🏽👍🏾👍🏿

I just arrived in the US a couple years ago, just before turning 18, and living in New York, I hear all the time from others, that “New York isn’t the same as the rest of the US”, and I’m only beginning to understand why. I had always been at a loss when I heard it, because I wasn’t exposed to anything different. So this program is really enlightening! Exposure and education are critical to understanding our society and democracy.

Waiting for this!

This podcast is exactly what I’ve been looking for these last 4 years as my interest in domestic immigration issues and policy has increased. I look forward to each new episode and trust the content is going to be solid coming from Harvard. I have not been disappointed. Each week is different and exciting to hear from multiple perspectives. My own professional work centers on refugee resettlement, and I’m thrilled to finally have a podcast I can recommend to anyone interested in human migration! Keep up the great work IIH! You have a huge fan in Texas!
