Between 'Immigrant' and 'Citizen'
How a play about the struggles of illegal immigrant youths in the United States is trying to humanise the national debate over immigration reform. We hear from the author of Citizenship: American Identity after Globalization about how the value placed on US citizenship has changed through the years.
Also, how Filipinos in the US who already send a lot of aid back home are trying to do more in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. An American architect’s ambitious vision for a new public park in Russia’s capital moves ahead. And, what Fidel Castro said when he heard that President John F Kennedy had been shot in Dallas 50 years ago this week.
