We bid you, adieu. We thank you for reading our posts, laughing at our memes, and watching the videos we shared. In the past month we’ve discussed the Dream Act, the Trump administration’s immigration reform, H-B1 visas, immigration in Canada versus the United States, stories of undocumented people living in the US, as well as, the historic “A Day Without Immigrants” strike, along with many more.
Of course we had some trials and tribulations as a group. As a group, it was difficult making sure we were all on the same schedule with posting and that our posts were coherent and within the topic of immigration. The biggest takeaway from this project is that research is vital! When running a blog, it’s important to have your facts straight, people will be reading your blog looking for information and you can’t misinform them and become unreliable. I didn’t expect to find an interest in blogging, I don’t know about the rest of the ladies..but I think I might take this on and explore blogging some more.
A lot was learned during this time writing about all these different topics, we understood why some things are set up the way they are, and how we can change other things if, as a population, we all work towards this goal of a warmer melting pot. During the time we were documenting the recent news on immigration, nothing much is changing, in fact, things are getting worst. There are more deportations, racism is thriving–as shown with our post Terps for Trump, and families are being divided. As we said, immigration is a very special topic to most of us–given that we come from a foreign background and our families migrated to the United States.
The discussion on immigration must continue, we must #resist.
