An Unnatural Disaster: The Impact of Immigration Raids on Latino CommunitiesBy William D. Lopez and Nicole L. Novak
This brief considers a particularly traumatic method of immigration enforcement: immigration raids. It explores how communities respond in the aftermath of large-scale immigration worksite raids. The description of raids as natural disasters provides guidance in development of our response. Just as disaster responses must address a range of humanitarian, health, and financial needs, so must responses to immigration raids be robust, flexible, and long-term.
