About the Tucson Project

The Tucson Project began in the spring of 2013 as prospects of immigration reform began to pick up. After spending the summer of 2013 in Tucson reporting on the Dreamer community, the project was extended to a second trip during summer of 2014 to focus on the deportation and security aspect of the immigration question, as reform plans failed in Washington and undocumented immigrants in the U.S. left in limbo.

The aim was and is to investigate and experience first-hand how the immigration question functions in the communities directly involved. This will be taken within the context of progression in D.C. with the impending reform. The project will give voice to the immigration questions and the human stories that witness it all in action.
