My name is Alexis, I am a student of social work and a volunteer with the Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice (IMIRJ) in Portland, OR. As someone who has spent time in sending communities in Latin America, along the US-Mexico border, and in immigrant communities in the US, I’ve seen how unjust policies all along the way have perpetuated the current immigration crisis. I am ashamed of the way our country treats immigrants, who form the backbone of our economy and are an integral part of our communities.
