Honoring Immigrant & Refugee Stories

The Trump administration announced plans to end the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” program, otherwise known as DACA, a blow to thousands of families who sought after protection and opportunity in this country. So, we’re honoring the stories of the immigrant and refugee families in New Mexico, families who, after fleeing war, refugee camps and economic hardship, have started new lives here in the Land of Enchantment. These stories were gathered in partnership with the City of Albuquerque’s Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs.
