Issue 19   July 3, 2017

The Immigrant Journey, published weekly by Batara Immigration Law, is a hand-picked collection of top news, blog posts, and resources from around the web. Our goal is to provide you with an overview of issues faced by immigrants and their families – without the noise and fluff of the internet – in the fast moving world of immigration law and politics.

In this edition, I have focused on the plight of refugees.  For those of us living in the United States, the Fourth of July is a time to celebrate our independence - a condition unknown to many trapped in violence, chaos, and tragedy.
