    You make a number of compelling arguments in your post. Thank you for sharing. I’m most struck by the role of the informal economy, in pre-COVID-19 times and now, as a potential source of income for migrants, as well as a potent system for explotiation and discrimination. Whatever labor rights initiatives are undertaken, we must develop mechanisms for including participants in the informal economies to bring some justice to these groups.

    Hello everyone,

    I am Audrey Hudgins and I teach at Seattle University. I volunteer with Kino Border Initiative when I’m not in the classroom and I am presently sponsoring an asylum seeker from Venezuela in my home while she pursues a change in status from Withholding of Removal to Asylum.

    I look forward to learning with you about the intersections of human rights and migration, a topic of increasing importance in this time of redoubled US efforts to marginalize or deny migrants’ human rights.

    My best,

    Audrey
