Picking a Fight: On the front lines of America’s immigration war
For The Daily
The only assignment that ever caused me to vomit from heatstroke, this print piece for The Daily illustrated the unintended consequences of a tough anti-immigration law passed by Georgia in 2011. Latino farm workers fled the state, crops rotted in the fields and farmers tried filling the gaps with jobless ex-convicts. Neither they, nor this reporter, did well stooping to harvest crops in the 100-degree heat.
