Every year, thousands of people come to the U.S. from other countries. Some come as immigrants. Others come to this country under terrible circumstances — they come here seeking refuge from terror, torture, war, and famine. The Trump administration’s policies are attempting to slow the flow of immigrants and refugees coming here, and it seems like we’re all paying more attention to the experiences of people who come here to start new lives.
On this episode, we’ll meet people as they interact with the American medical system for the first time, we’ll follow doctors who care for refugees here and abroad, and we’ll find out about the lives and legal perils of climate migrants.
