It's not new that whenever there's a disaster of war, economy, or public health — immigration takes a hit in the United States. President Donald Trump said his immigration order would only affect green card applicants for 60 days. It clarifies Trump's tweet Monday night that he would be suspending immigration into the US. Host Marco Werman speaks with Erika Lee, the author of "Americans for Americans: a History of Xenophobia in the United States," about how the US responded with changes to immigration policy and increased xenophobia during times of war, economic hardship and disease throughout history.
