Immigration Impacts our Everyday Lives

What actually happens when an American marries someone from another country?  How do foreign-born co-workers come to the U.S.?  Why do we have to fill out an immigration form when we start a new job? Whether we realize it or not, immigration impacts all of us.  

In the Everyday Immigration Podcast, twice a month, award-winning immigration attorney, David Wilks, speaks with people of all walks of life to explore the "everyday" impacts of immigration.
