Diane talks with Kendra Pierre-Louis, senior reporter on the podcast "How To Save A Planet," and a former climate reporter for the New York Times.
NPR reporter Aarti Shahani arrived in New York as a little girl in the 1980s. For years, her family lived without legal status.
When the Shahanis eventually got green cards, they thought they had achieved their American dream. But when her father mistakenly got caught up in legal trouble, they learned that, for many immigrants, life in this country isn’t as secure as it seems.
Aarti Shahani tells her family’s story in a new book, “Here We Are: American Dreams, American Nightmares.” In it, she asks the question who is a “deserving” immigrant? The answer, she says, is almost always more complicated than it seems.
