NPR's Aarti Shahani (Here We Are) and Pulitzer Prize finalist Suketu Mehta (This Land Is Our Land) push beyond the headlines to discuss the real experience of immigrants living in America. Sharing their perspectives as natives of India who relocated to the United States, Shahani and Mehta scrutinize generational differences, bureaucratic hoops, unforeseen obstacles, the argument of who “really” belongs in America, and the complicated truths of the American Dream.
