When we think about Immigration one of the first things to come to mind is the American Dream. Unless you are a full-blooded Native American, all of us have had ancestors, or perhaps even ourselves, emigrate to this country. While there are days when it seems like the US government is doing everything it can to squash that dream for the next generation of immigrants, the dream of the pursuit of happiness is alive and well.

This month’s “This Is What Democracy Looks Like” tackled the topic of immigration with attorney, Gigi Gardner of the Gardner Law firm. Gigi was a great help in explaining the ins and outs of immigration policy and how that has changed over the last eight years. She also helped us debunk some of the myths that surround DACA, family based immigration (aka “chain migration”) and more.

Give the show a watch, and as always, feel free to email us if you have any questions about the discussion at info@strongernc.org.
