As part of a pre-election series, Stephanie Desmon talks with Dr. Paul Spiegel, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health, and Katherine Narvaez, a Hopkins student and researcher and DACA recipient from Guatemala. They talk about Narvaez’s experience as a “Dreamer” and what’s at stake for her and other families who are at risk of separation and deportation. They also discuss the current administration’s policies and erosion of pathways to citizenship, how migrants and refugees contribute to the US’s economy, and how COVID-19 opened the door for much stricter immigration policies.
