After this week, the Source of the Week newsletter torch will be passed to our new Diverse Sources intern, Jireh Deng
! Jireh (they/she) is a poet and journalist based in Southern California. It’s been a pleasure to share new sources with you for the past four months.
Thousands of Haitians are attempting a journey to the U.S. — some by boat
, some on foot
— to seek asylum. They're a part of the surge of migrants
at the U.S.-Mexico border, which is expected to continue throughout 2021. What happens to these migrants if they make it into the U.S. to live? This week’s source can discuss the experiences of mixed-status immigrant communities — those that include both documented and undocumented people — in America and the difficulties they face from immigration law enforcement.
