What of American Democracy Is Worth Exporting?

How do immigrants to this country view the messy process of democracy? What would they like to bring home to their own countries? In the midst of the primary season, immigrants in New York City talk about their perceptions of the process and the problems.

What they're observing is messy and complicated, often angry and combative, and sometimes inspiring. They're taking mental notes on what works and what doesn't.

Marianne McCune reports from member station WNYC.
