Tocqueville 21 Podcast: Immigration and the Crisis of Democracy

7 October 2021

Tocqueville 21 · Deepak Bhargava and Ruth Milkman on Immigration

Hi everyone, for this week’s episode of the Tocqueville 21 Podcast, I spoke with Deepak Bhargava and Ruth Milkman about their new essay collection Immigration Matters: Movements, Visions, and Strategies for a Progressive Future—co-edited with Penny Lewis, and out now in paperback from the New Press. Professors Bhargava and Milkman describe their vision for how immigration policy needs to evolve to reflect the realities of twenty-first-century politics, economics, and ecology, as well as how the fight for a more inclusive United States intersects with the fight to preserve democracy from its enemies in a post-January 6th world. I hope you enjoy our conversation.

Deepak Bhargava is Distinguished Lecturer in Urban Studies at the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies and was previously President of the Center for Community Change. Ruth Milkman is Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the CUNY Graduate Center and the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies, and is the author of Immigrant Labor and the New Precariat (2020).
