Migratory Notes, Sept. 7, 2017

"Migratory Notes is a smart weekly guide to rapidly changing immigration issues for journalists, policymakers, lawyers, academics, advocates, and immigrants themselves. You can subscribe here.

The initial plan was to produce a pop-up newsletter — an insightful synopsis of important new stories to follow from across the country — and send it out once a week to immigration reporters for a month. Launched just days after President Trump took office and issued the first travel ban, we quickly found we were providing an important service as we received an outpouring of support for the initiative from people who work in varied fields related to immigration.

We’re two experienced immigration journalists, Daniela Gerson and Elizabeth Aguilera, and we have never covered a time like this. (More about us below). We are also both based in Los Angeles, and always appreciate story tips and resources for our influential community of readers across the United States and around the world. Mail them here, and thank you for reading!

  • Wow. Very nice and useful guide. Thank you! I also write guides connected with academic writing sometimes for the <a href="">UK dissertation writing service</a> and i can say that it is really hard to write an article that people will really like. But you perfectly coped with this task.

    I also found some more migratory notes that can help <a href=">.

    But i really want to read some more articles written by Daniela Gerson and Elizabeth Aguilera? Where can i find it? Already thank you!
