I worked with reporter Tiziana Rinaldi on a story that took great courage on the part of the people who spoke with us.
Laura López, a 29-year-old DACA recipient in Provo, Utah, told me about what it’s like to panic. The physicality of it is striking.
If you’ve ever had an anxiety attack or a panic attack, you’ll understand this story very well. The consequences of long-term stress, in this case caused by long-term immigration status uncertainty, is real. Our immigration system puts a lot of people in this kind of limbo. And mental health experts say, it’s really hard to provide the kind of care these immigrants need.
