Immigrants Are Welcome Here! Stories of Struggle, Triumph and Resistance

This week on Women's Magazine, after a week of historic protests around the country protesting the government's inhumane treatment of refugees from Latin America, we hear three stories about immigration.

This segment features novelist and short story writer Yang Huang describes her own journey from Jiangsu, China to Berkeley, her life as a "blue collar writer" and what it feels like to be an immigrant in the U.S. today. Her newest book is MY OLD FAITHFUL, a collection of stories about family life in China.

"Writing has to be painful, it should not be easy...I choose writing." -Yang Huang
