Conditional Citizenship: Palestinian-Americans

SF Bay Area: Palestinian-Americans, Majdi and Taghrid, join us in studio to speak about their experiences of being denied entry into their homeland of Palestine to visit family and friends. Our guests tell their stories but only used their first names because they don’t want to be prevented from seeing their families and homelands again.

The episode begins with UpFront’s, originally-produced segment on George Khoury’s denial of entry by Israel in July 2015:
