Immigration in the Heartland

Immigration is a profoundly human experience. That’s what keeps pulling me toward this topic as a reporter.

This year, I’m focusing on immigration as a fellow with the Institute for Justice and Journalism. In March, I attended a week-long training program in Oklahoma City and Dallas. The other reporters were from states like Florida, Iowa, Colorado and Illinois. We learned about immigration law, research and census data and met with teens and families who shared their experiences of living in the U.S. without legal papers.

Back in Albuquerque, I’m looking for perspectives on immigration in New Mexico.
