So much has changed since the attacks of September 11, 2001.  And yet, the striving for a better life by immigrants continues. In this edition of the Feet in Two Worlds podcast three immigrant journalists from New York discuss the changes they have witnessed over the past decade since the 9/11 attacks, including the impact of new security laws and policies, the stalemate over immigration reform, and the stagnant economy.

Listen to Fi2W Executive Producer John Rudolph in conversation with Maibe Ponet, editorial page editor of the Spanish-language daily, El Diario/La Prensa, which has assembled a special website to document the impact of 9/11 on New York’s Latino community; Mohsin Zaheer, founder and editor of the Pakistani Newspaper and editor of Sade-e-Pakistan; and Ewa Kern-Jedrychowska, a reporter at Nowy Dziennik – The Polish Daily News.
