Crossing the border
54:12Immigration: one of the most controversial topics in British politics right now.

In this episode, Dana tells us her story of her arrival in the UK as a child and how she overcame the struggles of having to adapt to a new language and lifestyle. We discuss cultural differences and give our insights on different British politicians’ stance on immigration, asking the ultimate question – are immigrants really stealing our jobs?
