#1403 – Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

This week, Latino USA takes a look at how we deal with our neighbors. One police department in Alabama takes a gentle approach towards undocumented immigrants. A Georgia town provides a place for families of detainees. We hear about the new neighbor in college music (hint: it ain’t a capella). We examine the relationship between Major League Baseball and Cuban players who defect. Journalist Mirta Ojito joins us to discuss a murder and assault in Long Island. A reporter in Tucson asks whether he’s a gentrifier, and whether his neighbors feel that’s necessarily a bad thing. One Kansas town embraces the strangers who arrive and we ask whether we should embrace the neighbors that live inside our guts. We end with some words of wisdom from poet Tim Hernandez.
