Justice at the Borders
For decades, research has shown that more immigration doesn’t mean more crime. But the myth of “the dangerous immigrant” remains a powerful force in American politics and rhetoric.

Join host Samantha Laine Perfas and Monitor reporter Henry Gass with guests: criminologist Charis Kubrin, activist Hoda Katebi, immigration policy expert Muzaffar Chishti, sociologist Jonathan Metzl, and immigration attorney Laura Peña.
