ALI NOORANI

 

Ali Noorani, the Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum (an advocacy organization promoting the value of immigrants and immigration) joins us today to discuss his new book, There Goes the Neighborhood: How Communities Overcome Prejudice and Meet the Challenge of American Immigration (Prometheus).  

“This is a timely memoir of unexpected allies, from the Mormon Church and Southern Baptist leaders to a rural sheriff and red-state attorney general. More than just presenting a theory that cultural engagement is essential for political engagement, the author describes how he put that theory into practice to bring these stakeholders together over an issue that is key to American identity.” -Booklist.
