Is the U.S. a nation of immigrants or a nation of immigrant restrictions? Reece Jones, chair of the Department of Geography and Environment at the University of Hawai‘i, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss his research into nativism and white supremacy and how panicked views about immigration from the fringe made it to the mainstream. His book is called “White Borders: The History of Race and Immigration in the United States from Chinese Exclusion to the Border Wall.”
