Online platforms report, analyze and criticize immigration policies

thumbnailby Abelardo de la Peña Jr.


  • Discussion on the hot-button issue of immigration is wide-ranging on the Web, as journalists, pundits and activists go online to report, analyze and criticize.
  • Joaquin Ramon Herrera, a.k.a. Nezua, offers nuanced perspectives and commentary as The Unapologetic Mexican. The writer/filmmaker/illustrator writes on immigration with regularity, including a recent post on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) enforcement and detention tactics.
  • Associate editor with New America Media and a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post, Roberto Lovato authors the Of América blog. The former executive director of an L.A.-based immigrant rights organization has covered global perspectives of U.S. immigration policies.
  • A training and mentoring program for journalists covering immigrants, Feet in Two Worlds, is a project of The New School. Participants from Brazil, South Africa, Poland and other nations write and create videos and podcasts on immigration, globalization and transnational culture.


  • Observers and supporters of immigration and immigrant rights are taking to cyberspace to counter a wide-ranging anti-immigration presence, hoping to add a more balanced perspective and change the tone of the immigration debate.
  • Besides serving to promote discussion about immigration, the growth of sites that take on the topic can lead to the realization that immigration is not just about Latinos.
