SCPR reporter Josie Huang and NPR's Hansi Lo Wong join the show to talk about the shift in Chinese immigration, and how it is changing the face of America.

Yesterday on the program, Josie Huang, a reporter based at Southern California Public Radio, shared her own report about what immigration from China looks like here in SoCal.

She focused on the waves of teenagers coming from China to the San Gabriel Valley, where they study in school with dreams of attending U.S. colleges.

Today, NPR's Hansi Lo Wong shared his report on north China immigrants coming to New York city. The Big Apple is already home to the largest Chinese community of any city outside of Asia.

For decades, most of those who immigrated came from China's southern provinces, however that majority is shifting.

We want to better understand how that shift, along with what we've just learned in Josie's story, is changing the face of immigration and of America.

Josie Huang and NPR's Hansi Lo Wong joined the show to discuss.
