The United Nations estimates that nearly 200 million migrants from various nations are scattered across the globe living and working in countries far from their homes, their families and their culture. Last year alone, migrants sent an estimated $300 billion back to their home countries. That’s nearly triple the amount of all the world’s foreign aid budgets combined.

On this edition, we’ll hear from Harjap Grewal, an organizer with the Canadian-based group, “No One is Illegal.” He speaks about global migration, guest worker programs and the brewing resistance in what he calls “Fortress North America.”
