This month on War News Radio, “Travelers.” We consider the most recent wave of immigration, one that has attracted so much U.S. media attention. We recognize that it is both common and incredibly unique. It shares elements with previous migrations throughout history - clear reasons to abandon home, arduous journeys to new places, logistical challenges to gain entrance, and a process of adjustment once people arrive. But this situation is also shaped by government policy, and those addressing the problem are not necessarily government actors. They are non-profits, they are concerned activists and members of the community, and they are immigrants themselves. Take a listen.
