Description

This website explores topics of immigration and identity in the modern American context. Stories from Vietnamese, Guatemalan, and Muslim immigrants illustrate their unique experiences with the current American sociopolitical climate and the challenges of the immigration process.

With changes in visa policy, a xenophobic administration, and growing tensions between immigrants and non-immigrants, these stories provide the perspectives of those who bravely leave their homes. Doing so in search of safety, shelter, and opportunity in the United States of America, we have highlighted how these such endeavors have shaped the identities of these courageous immigrants.
