As the country still reels from post election shock, one of the central issues facing the America is the fate of immigrant communities across the nation. Demonized by some on the right, the very vibrancy of America is in large part based on the growth and acceptance of immigrants.
Who are they? Where are they? How can we learn more from them? And how can we accept their presence and contributions without fear and hysteria?
Joining us on today’s show is Denzil Mohammed, Director at the Immigration Learning Center Public Education Institute.

The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) of Malden, MA, is a not-for-profit organization that gives immigrants a voice in three ways. The English Language Program provides free, year-round English classes to immigrant and refugee adults in Greater Boston to help them become successful workers, parents and community members. The Public Education Institute informs Americans about the economic and social contributions of immigrants in our society, and the Institute for Immigration Research, a joint venture with George Mason University, conducts research on the economic contributions of immigrants.
