Open in playerListen on
All Americans have a voice, but too many Americans face roadblocks when it comes to casting their votes. People who are waiting to become naturalized citizens, people who are undocumented, people who were once incarcerated and so many others are forced to watch from the sidelines as their fellow Americans vote in the next election. The hosts of this podcast, journalists Maria Elena Perez and Nikki Rojas, speak to lawmakers, historians, non-profit leaders and everyday people to unpack the barriers many Americans have to overcome to make sure that their voices are heard during the voting process.
In the first part of a two-episode look at how the voting process excludes immigrants, Maria Elena Perez and Nikki Rojas take a look at how undocumented immigrants can’t vote for the lawmakers responsible for their fate in this country.
