Immigrants and their children have long lived in the shadows of America, their destinies aren’t just shaped by where they come from but by their particular place in history.
In 1986, the lives of millions of immigrants and their children were changed by one lucky stroke of a pen by an unlikely ally, President Ronald Reagan. This podcast will examine the ripple effects the bill had on first-generation kids of immigrants who are navigating intergenerational mobility and transforming the cultural landscape.
This is an untold story of luck, timing, triumph, opportunity, survival, and of course, hope. Hosted by award-winning New York Times writer Erick Galindo and entrepreneur and best-selling author Patty Rodriguez.
