This second of two episodes build on Episodes 11 (Immigration and Philosophy) and 19 (Undocumented immigrants and kidney transplants: an inspiring story). Dr Anderson shares his experiences as a doctor working in Latin America, visiting the southern border wall, and caring for undocumented immigrants incarcerated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Our discussion covers the epidemiology of U.S. immigration, historical responses by the U.S. government to various waves of immigration, how US imperialism and capitalism, along with climate change, has contributed to emigration from Central American nations, health problems of undocumented immigrants, and human rights violations occurring daily consequent to the dastardly policies of the Trump administration, including locking up children and separating families who have applied for asylum.
