Maeve in America: Immigration IRL

Love On Top: The Valentines Special

February 14, 201734 min
Maeve plays matchmaker with Mona, but things don’t go as planned. We get a first-hand look at what it’s like to be a Muslim immigrant dating in the shadow of the ban. Our spirits are lifted by Nalina in Jersey City describing her arranged marriage 33 years ago in India. Nessia moves to Crown Heights from Canada to find her love match -  a Hasidic Jew with a Country-Western flare. And Minori from Japan is tired of guys who just want one night stands, and finally gets her meet-cute in an NYC Starbucks. Nao and Shiraz are tying the knot at City Hall, hoping their strength as a couple will help them through the next four years. These stories bring light and laughter to dark days for immigration in the US.
