Join the Pulitzer Center, Hunter College’s Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute, and grantee Anna-Catherine Brigida for a conversation on how border policies impact migrants and their families. The webinar will be on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, at 6:00pm EST. Director of the Hunter College Journalism Program, Sissel McCarthy, will moderate the conversation.

In her Pulitzer Center-supported project, From Texas to Central America: How Tough Policies in the COVID-19 Era Are Endangering Asylum Seekers, Brigida’s reporting focused on the Trump administration’s policies during the COVID-19 pandemic and how they affected migrants. Decisions to close the border and courts, exclude undocumented immigrants from the stimulus package, deny parole to immigrants in detention, and sustain deportation flights are just some of the policies that put migrants at risk.
