  • Oct 30, 2015: Addressing Immigration Legal Needs in the Southeastern United States
    Oct 30, 2015:   Why does the Southeast need more legal service providers? To understand the need, this blog series took a holistic approach to investigating who is in need, how, and why, from the assessment of the demographic changes to anti-immigrant sentiment. In the final blog post, we will assess how bad that lack actually is, and what exactly CLINIC is going to do about it.

  • Oct 22, 2015: The Southeast U.S.: a Dearth of Immigration Legal Services
    Oct 22, 2015: So far, we’ve explored the rapid demographic shift of the Southeast region and the emergence of the New Latino South, demonstrating the need for more immigration legal service providers and resources.  But if the growth and impact of this community is evident and felt throughout the region, why aren’t there more legal service providers for immigrants in the Southeast in the first place? 
  • Oct 15, 2015: The New Latino South

Most immigrants are undocumented and of the undocumented, most are Latino (76.2%).
  • Oct 14, 2015: Making a Difference: Comforting the Detained Families of Dilley
    Oct 14, 2015: Twenty-eight years ago my mother fled her home in Nicaragua, a country embroiled in civil war. For years, her life and that of her family had been ravaged by a country with corrupt government officials and oppressed by a rebel group that brought nothing but violence to civilians like my parents.  My mother saw family members and friends killed or forced to fight for a cause they did not believe in. At one point, she was taken hostage and held at gunpoint by militant groups and forced to drop out of school.
  • Oct 8, 2015: Where are Immigrants to the US Moving?

  • Oct 1, 2015: Pope Francis Connects with Catholics
    Oct 1, 2015: Reading the September 28 article “Why American Catholics may not be persuaded by Pope Francis’ message on immigration,” I was disappointed on many levels – in part, due to the article's misplaced reliance on a non-scientific “experiment” – but most importantly because it totally missed the point of Pope Francis’s strong and consistent comments on immigration.
