1x04 Immigrants and the Border in Denmark (August 27, 2020)


Determined to leave his daughter with a country as welcoming and encouraging of the “American dream” as it was for his parents, Ravi travels to Denmark, where attitudes toward immigration are as divided as they are in the States. In Copenhagen, Ravi and his journalist friend Abdullah Saeed meet with local refugees and politicians who preach hygge and hope to squash anti-immigrant sentiments before they destroy their democracy.
