FEATURED IIH REPORT
By William D. Lopez and Nicole L. Novak
The Immigration Initiative at Harvard (IIH) released on July 8 2020 a new report, "An Unnatural Disaster: The Impact of Immigration Raids on Latino Communities." 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.
