Monica Rhor a former educator says, “I actually believe there is an overemphasis on linking immigration coverage with the Latino community” Too often, immigration stories are viewed through a very narrow scope, giving the impression that all Latinos are immigrants and all immigrants are Latino. Monica brings up a phenomenal point that immigration affects people of all races and ethnicity. She suggests that journalists, should portray immigration issues from all angles and all communities – Asian, Irish, Canadian, Russian, African, Caribbean and Latino.
Maria Zamudio is an investigative reporter at Chicago Reporter magazine and she states “Most of the immigration stories I see are about enforcement and deportation policies.”
There are so many success stories about Latinos waiting to be covered and they aren’t.
